Compassionate Touch: Giving Massage for Optimal Health, Thriving Relationships & Spiritual Awakening gThis book is fabulous and I tried to do it justice by researching and linking some pictures from the Natural History Museum But I can t be bothered to fuss with GR s system and annotating my referencesBlog review with pictures reviewFortey had me hooked with the idea of the behind the scenes maze at the British Museum There s something about that that appeals to me not only knowing the stories but the physicality of the space In my first few years working at the hospital I used to delight in knowing the back stairwells and unused corridors one could take toet from one decade of the building to another How could a building like this not be filled with hidden mysteriesInside the Spirit Collection Natural History Museum Tucked away mostly out of view there is a warren of corridors obsolete Irrevocable Trust Irreparable galleries offices libraries and above all collections This is the natural habitat of the curator It is a historical tour of the museum staff and taxonomy by a knowledgeable urbane humorousuide Fortey was hired as a Junior Researcher specializing in trilobites as one does in 1970 and has been there ever since even past his retirement in 2006 He is clearly a wit apparent most often in the early chapters In one anecdote he shares his reaction to timekeeping reuirements The diary was a hangover from the early days of the Museum being a little book into which the employee was supposed to write his activities morning and afternoon and which was collected every month and signed off by the head of the department I took to writing study trilobites on the first day of the month and ditto marks for the rest of it I devoured the first part of this book I meant to read just a chapter before bed a way of lulling my brain into imaginative sleepiness without catching me up into murders and anti heroes but Fortey s enthusiasm engaged me He clearly loves taxonomy and biology and has a deep respect for the research process Although he is La Fille dans les bois generally apolitical he does occasionally allow himself commentary on problematic aspects of the history of museums the history of science and politics influencing research He shares minor scandals about researchers stories of discoveries and anecdotes about the space inside the museum In many ways much of it is about the history of science and of taxonomy as much as a museum Science is often like this an idea has been around for a while before new evidence suddenly pushes it forwards And then researchers start to think maybe this example is not so surprising after all From the herb collection in the Botany Department confess like a number of enthusiasts who ve illegally sampled collections I felt a little bit of atavisticreed when he talked about the Herbarium I probably shouldn t be allowed in thereI stumbled at the section on bugs I just could not read it before bed no matter how engaging the story particularly when he mentions their connection to forensics Sill I regained my footing as he continued with typical humor The mineralogy section is perhaps the least engaging for both of us though he does his best to liven it up with stories about ems and meteorites There s a nod to modern euipment and the machines in this section which was the only place I skimmed about 3 pages in total because of the specificity and complexity of material For the rest of it Fortey deftly explains in a way that anyone can understandThere s something supremely eerie about the idea we can catalog life by reducing it to it s essential whether through description of DNA or through the type specimens the first and ideal type of a thing described I remember the first time I opened a drawer at my college s biology department and saw specimen upon specimen of dead birdDiptera collection from Natural History Museum be fair I think Fortey understands life can t be conceptualized down to its representation Modern methods of characterizing species employ molecular seuencing to identify a characteristic part of the DNA But this process leaves out everything else Every species has its own tale a story about how it earns its living meets its mate or warns off its enemies the interesting stuff You don t understand London just by reading the names in the telephone directory The summary looks back at some of the influencers for better or for worse and includes a mention of significant female researchers while noting the sexism of the system He finalizes with a bit of a lament about the reuirements of funding and its effect on pure research However there s a note of hope the very fact that so much information is available by way of the internet and through collaborations we might once again see the rise of the amateur enthusiast contributing to the knowledge base Overall a fascinating and entertaining look through the corridors rise of the amateur enthusiast contributing to the knowledge base Overall a fascinating and entertaining look through the corridors boxes in one man s memories in the British Natural History Museum as well

Rtey s tangents sometimes strayed off into the finer points of plant classification I loved his message or rather messages which drive home the importance of the Natural History Museum and the scientific research conducted there Science treasure rarity beauty scholarship this hidden allery made me understand again the heterogeneous attraction of Museum life Nowhere else could a link with the Mughal emperors be relevant to what happens deep beneath the surface of the Earth nowhere else would the fanatical collecting of a toffish Russell become a long term resource for mineral enesis nowhere else could rummaging in an attic reveal an archive of the Prince Regent From the Russell Room I looked out on to the Victoria and Albert Museum across the other side of Exhibition Road The prospect might suggest imperial nonsense and pomp and circumstance a slightly ridiculous inheritance from the nineteenth century when the Sun never set on the British Empire But South Kensington has become transformed by time and usage into something that is than just the BM and the V A a monument to a Britain that no longer exists The collections are there to inform and inspire the whole world and not just a small corner of it I am not much of a post colonialist and I don t necessarily admire the principles on which the collections were made But I do understand the primacy of collections as a record of the world both human and natural There is to collections than the olden rule about never throwing things away There is inherent value in having people who know their stuff The apparently esoteric can suddenly illuminate unsuspected areas of knowledge Those who have devoted their lives to collections obdurate people odd people admirable people actually make a museum what it is and should be Wildly discursive endlessly fascinating look behind the scenes of the Natural History museum in London Fortey is a scientist s scientist a naturalist s naturalist he s compelled to explain some mind numbing minutia along the way to imparting interesting facts Some of his pedantic asides made me laugh out loud because they were such textbook nerd moments There s a lot of detail here even than I wanted but the narrative is terribly interesting If you like that sort of thing and I do A lot of reviews comment on how dry they found this book but I rather enjoyed it I like Richard Fortey s style of writing despite his tendency to ramble and The Art of Business Process Modeling: The Business Analyst's Guide to Process Modeling With UML BPMN get distracted It s of a biography or history of the Natural History Museum than a chronicle of the science thatoes on there but there s some of that tooI liked the sense of exploring a wonderland Fortey plainly finds everything in the Natural History Museum a delight and a revelation and I shared in that He Living by Fiction got in some apt comparisons too like comparing the museum s storage to GormenghastI was vaguely aware of most of the broader details here about trends in collecting and displaying but most of the details about the actual scientists and curators were completely new to me This book has a distinctlyossip like feeling which I didn t mind at all Fortey is not only a reasonable writer in that he can tell a Blood and Honor good story he also has some important things to sayleaned from his whole career and the British Natural History Museum He uses this book to say those things but doesn t uite fall into the preachy areaWhile Fortey s line of work is arthropod paleontology he roams and roves through the Museum as a whole including plants minerals and fungi Much of the book is telling about his co workers over the years and he includes the L'enfant de Schindler great work they ve done some of theaffes that have happened and other various stories Fortey just touches on the Museum s Directors taking the stance that the real important work is done by amazing this the workersThe ending uarter of the book in some ways is taken up with an interesting personal overview of how the British Museum has changed over his career It has moved from the scientists being the most important elements to the marketers and PR people It has moved from having people available to study their subjects in absolute depth and he in the absence of the sun gives stories about theood that can happen for all of us when people are allowed to do that to people being let Mafia Dynasty The Rise and Fall of the Gambino Crime Family go and not replaced because the bean counters don t see what they re doing as worth anything Fortey stops short of really decrying this situation I won tThrough it all one thing is clear Fortey thought the world of the mission of the Museum and its scientific workers He notes that many of the scientists still work at the Museumratis after their official retirement because they love the work and its not done yetWould that we all worked in such places and with such people This is really uite a bit interesting than the title might suggest A few of the sections dragged Noah s Ark in Kensington and Behind the Galleries particularly but mostly Fortey s descriptions of plants animals and fossils and of the men and women who study them are pretty entertaining He does tend to جولات في مغرب أمس بعيد الحماية get a bitossipy for me I might enjoy his science writing Without the focus on the institutional politics even but that might just reflect my total ignorance about the scientists and politicians he is talking about I now know a little about trilobites lichens screw worms corpse decay etc than I did previously and Fortey managed to make all these things seem fun.

which Fortey is surprisingly open about the love lives mental disorders and substance abuse problems of his colleagues the title refers to a noted trysting spot in the Museum and even s I adore Richard Fortey s writing His sense of humour matches mine extremely well and I appreciate the literariness of his style Having worked in libraries and currently at a museum I know how much of the action takes place out of public view Fortey lets us spy on the secret life of the museum and the museum curators Its a fascinating world and highly entertainingAn extremely ood read You know how sometimes you Les Ravages de la passion (5) get stuck in a conversation with someone who tells you a story about people you don t know and don t care about in excruciating detail And then just when you are thinking OK the next time he takes a breath I moing to interject and say I have an appointment I really must leave for pleasure chatting with you And then right before he breathes he says something utterly fascinating and you decide it s worth sticking around to hear the rest of that story And then that little 5 minute tidbit passes and you ve lost your chance for escape This whole book was like that 20 minutes of 2 star alternating with 5 minutes of 5 star Just when I thought OK I m putting this down at the end of this chapter for sure he d reel me right back in Lest you think a museum is a stuffy old building filled with the same antiuated exhibits here s a book that provides an enlightening look behind the scenes at one of the biggest museums in EnglandThe amount of material stored in the Natural History Museum is staggering Literally miles not to mention kilometers of all sorts of objects from creepy crawlies found only in a remote part of South America to minerals from right around the corner by comparison I had no idea the museum employed such an array of specialists For every family of bug there s a person who has made it their main field of studyAmong the employees are the eccentric old Interpreting Gods Voice: Sharpening your hearing through meditation gents who thrive in this sort of environment From theuy who kept and filed by length all the pieces of string ever sent to the museum as packaging to the bloke who tried on his bulky diving apparatus and then couldn t remove it so he walked out of the museum looking like as the author put it an extra in a science fiction movie there are certainly a varied assortment of people working out of the public viewHighly recommended for anyone interested in science or those who enjoy a trip to a museum Dry Store Room No 1 was a kind of miscellaneous repository a place of institutional amnesia It was rumoured that it was also the site of trysts although love in the shadow of the sunfish must have been needy rather than romantic Certainly it was a place unlikely to be disturbed until it was dismantled I could not suppress the thought that the store room was like the inside of my head presenting a physical analogy for the jumbled lumber room of memory Not everything there was entirely respectable but even if tucked out of sight like suppressed memories these collections could never be thrown away This book opens a few cupboards sifts through a few drawers A life accumulates a collection of people work and perplexities We are all our own curatorsBefore you La Caputxeta foruda (Contes desexplicats) get any ideas this book is not just about the one storeroom And while the book is focused on London s Natural History Museum its history people and exhibits Dr Fortey tells of much than just the museum he just happens to use the museum as an anchor for his discourse into the history naturally of the world and the people and finds that have shaped our understanding of it And what an anchor it is The Natural History Museum started out as a part of the British Museum another favourite haunt of mine but the collection of natural artefacts soon outgrew the capacity of the British Museum and efforts led by Richard Owen succeeded in the split of the collections and the establishment of the Natural History Museum as a separate enterprise and an important new centre of research which it is to this day Dr Forteyoes into a lot of detail about the history of the museum and its collections and in turn this reveals a wider story of the development of the natural sciences in society Fortey s forte however is when he Le Sphinx rouge gets to speak about the different collections and the people who have shaped not only the departments of the museum but also the scientific research from lichen to minerals to worms I had no idea I could be so interested in worms My first concrete interest in the NHM s collections was when I read about Mary Anning sroundbreaking finds of ichthyosaurus and plesiosaurus specimen which are held by the NHMAnning s finds are of course some of the famous exhibits along with the archaeopteryx or the dodo skeleton While Fortey mentions them he also introduces the collections that are not on display and that are mostly of interest to the scientific community He does it in a way tho that is strangely fascinating And while not all parts of the book are eually interesting and while Fo.
