Mikhail Lomonosov

Mikhail Vasilyevich Lomonosov was a Russian polymath and writer, who made important contributions to literature and science. Among his discoveries were the atmosphere of Venus and the law of conservation of mass in chemical reactions, his spheres of science were natural science, physics, history, philology, optical devices and others. Lomonosov was a poet and influenced the formation of the modern Russian literary language. Lomonosov was born in the village of Mishaninskaya in Archangelgorod Governorate, on an island not far from Kholmogory, in the far north of Russia, his father, Vasily Dorofeyevich Lomonosov, was a prosperous peasant fisherman turned ship owner, who amassed a small fortune transporting goods from Arkhangelsk to Pustozyorsk, Solovki and Lapland. Lomonosov's mother was a deacon's daughter, Elena Ivanovna Sivkova, he remained at Denisovka until he was ten, when his father decided that he was old enough to participate in his business ventures, Lomonosov began accompanying Vasily on trading missions.

Learning was young Lomonosov's passion, not business. The boy's thirst for knowledge was insatiable. Lomonosov had been taught to read as a boy by his neighbor Ivan Shubny, he spent every spare moment with his books, he continued his studies with the village deacon, S. N. Sabelnikov, but for many years the only books he had access to were religious texts; when he was fourteen, Lomonosov was given copies of Meletius Smotrytsky's Modern Church Slavonic and Leonty Magnitsky's Arithmetic. Lomonosov was a Russian orthodox all his life, but had close encounters with Old Believers schism in early youth and in life he became a deist. In 1724, his father married for the final time. Lomonosov and his stepmother Irina had an acrimonious relationship. Unhappy at home and intent on obtaining a higher education, which Lomonosov could not receive in Mishaninskaya, he was determined to leave the village. In 1730, at nineteen, Lomonosov went to Moscow on foot, because he was determined to "study sciences". Shortly after arrival, he admitted into the Slavic Greek Latin Academy by falsely claiming to be a son of a Kholmogory nobleman.

In 1734 that initial falsehood as well as another lie for him to be son of a priest nearly got him expelled from the academy but the investigation ended without severe consequences. Lomonosov lived on three kopecks a day, eating only black bread and kvass, but he made rapid progress scholastically, it is believed that in 1735, after three years in Moscow he was sent to Kiev to study for short period at the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy. He became dissatisfied with the education he was receiving there, returned to Moscow to resume his studies there. In five years Lomonosov completed a twelve-year study course and in 1736, among 12 best graduates, was awarded a scholarship at the St. Petersburg Academy, he plunged into his studies and was rewarded with a four-year grant to study abroad, in Germany, first at the University of Marburg and in Freiberg. The University of Marburg was among Europe's most important universities in the mid-18th century due to the presence of the philosopher Christian Wolff, a prominent figure of the German Enlightenment.

Lomonosov became one of Wolff's students while at Marburg from November 1736 to July 1739. Both philosophically and as a science administrator, this connection would be the most influential of Lomonosov's life. In 1739–1740 he studied mineralogy and mining at Bergrat Johann Friedrich Henckel's laboratory in Freiberg, Saxony. Lomonosov mastered the German language, in addition to philosophy studied chemistry, discovered the works of 17th century Irish theologian and natural philosopher, Robert Boyle, began writing poetry, he developed an interest in German literature. He is said to have admired Günther, his Ode on the Taking of Khotin from the Turks, composed in 1739, attracted a great deal of attention in Saint Petersburg. Contrary to his adoration for Wolff, Lomonosov went into fierce disputes with Henckel over the training and education courses he and his two compatriot students were getting in Freiberg as well as over limited financial support which Henckel was instructed to provide to the Russians after numerous debts they made in Marburg.

As the result, Lomonosov left Freiberg without permission and wandered for quite a while over Germany and Holland unsuccessfully trying to get a permission from Russian envoys to return to the St. Petersburg Academy. During his residence in Marburg, Lomonosov boarded with a brewer's widow, he fell in love with Catharina's daughter Elizabeth Christine Zilch. They were married in June 1740. Lomonosov found it difficult to maintain his growing family on the scanty and irregular allowance granted him by the Russian Academy of Sciences; as his circumstances became desperate, he got permission to return to Saint Petersburg. Lomonosov returned to Russia after being abroad 4 years and 8 months. A year he was named an Adjunct of the Russian Academy of Science in the physics department. In May 1743, Lomonosov was accused and held under house arrest for eight months, after he insulted various people associated with the Academy, he pardoned in January 1744 after apologising to all involved. Lomonosov was made a full member of the Academy, named Professor of chemistry, in 1745.

He established the Academy's first chemistry laboratory. Eag

Northern snake-necked turtle

The northern snake-necked turtle is a species of turtle in the family Chelidae or Austro-South American Side-necked Turtles. It is native to southern New Guinea; the species was described in 1890 from material collected in Cape York of Australia. The species has in recent years had several species of turtle synonymised with it, the distribution includes northern Australia and Pitcairn; as a member of the sub-family Pleurodira this species is a side-necked turtle and a snake-necked strike and gape predator. This carnivorous turtle will consume fish, hatchling turtles, crickets, etc, it is not an aggressive species with a biting defense. Individuals tend to flail to escape rather than bite; this species can be found not only in fresh water, but due to the proximity of the south New Guinea coast and close off shore islands, it can be found in brackish water. Chelodina rugosa tends to hide under and between rocks and logs where possible or buries itself in the mud to act as an ambush predator to fish and invertebrate prey.

Sexual dimorphism is quite evident in this species. Females can be recognized by the short, stubby tail; this species has had a rather convoluted taxonomic history. Described in 1841 by John Edward Grey it was synonymised with Chelodina colliei and for many years northern and western Australia was believed to have a single species. In 1967, the species was separated from the south-western Australian species but the name was incorrectly applied to that species with the name Chelodina seibenrocki applied to the northern form. Just eight years it was found that the name Chelodina rugosa had precedence over Chelodina seibenrocki and for many years after this that name was used for this species. In 2000, it was found that the holotype of Chelodina oblonga was in fact a northern long-neck turtle and hence a petition was put in to conserve the now well established name of Chelodina rugosa; this petition to the ICZN was overturned with the direction to use the Principal of Priority to determine the names, hence the name Chelodina oblonga is the correct name for this species.

More using mitagenomics of the types it was found that the specimen assumed to be the holotype of Chelodina oblonga, in all liklihood, could not be. It was collected in northern Australia and described as such by Gray with characters that are true of the northern species. However, its genomics suggest it is from Perth calling into question whether the unlabelled specimen figured in Gray 1841 was in fact the same as the specimen described; as such the name Chelodina rugosa has been resurrected for the species and Chelodina oblonga declared a nomen dubium rendoring it unusable. Subspecies are recognised by some for this species geographic variants of doubtful significance; however these are Chelodina r. rugosa from Queensland. The specific name, siebenrocki, is in honor of Austrian herpetologist Friedrich Siebenrock. Asian Turtle Trade Working Group. Chelodina siebenrocki. 2006 IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Block B has pediatric inpatient units, which include a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, it houses a pediatric emergency department, operating rooms and perioperative services, day hospitals and some Allied Health Services. The Montreal Children's Hospital, designed by David Robertson Brown, first opened on the rented premise of 500 Guy Street on January 30, 1904, it was the first hospital in Montreal with the sole mandate of providing care for sick children. In 1909, the growing number of patients required a move to new premises on Cedar Avenue. In 1920, the hospital became a teaching hospital affiliated with McGill University; the hospital has achieved a number of "firsts", including the first speech clinic in a pediatric hospital in 1933, the first division of medical genetics in 1949 and the first department of psychiatry in 1950.

The increasing number of services required another expansion. A relocation took place to 2300 Tupper Street in 1956, it was renamed the Montreal Children's Hospital. In August 1997, the Montreal Children's Hospital merged with the Royal Victoria Hospital, the Montreal General Hospital, the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital and the Montreal Chest Institute to form the McGill University Health Centre; the location of the Montreal Children's Hospital at 2300 Tupper Street closed at 11:00 on May 24, 2015, after 68 patients were transferred to the new Glen Site at 1001 Décarie Boulevard.
