Earth and Environmental Sciences researcher Paul K. Strother and a team of scientists have discovered evidence that primitive moths and butterflies existed during the Jurassic period, approximately 50 million years before the first flowering plants. Their report, published in Scientific Advances, sheds new light on one of the most confounding cases of co-evolution. Read more in The New York Times:

    Finding the Oldest Fossils of Butterflies Using a Human Nose Hair
    But in analyzing the murky solution they stumbled upon a new mystery: several unknown scales were left behind in the gunk. The team soon discovered that the scales belonged to long extinct relatives of modern butterflies and moths. Mr. van Eldijk was tasked with fishing out more, and for that job he was given a dissection probe with a single nostril hair.

Moths and butterflies fluttered around Earth in the Jurassic Period, millions of years earlier than previously thought, even before there were flowers to provide them with nectar for food. A new study by a group of researchers including BC Research Prof. Paul K. Strother offers new support for that theory. h/t Weston Observatory, Earth and Environmental Sciences, Boston College

We have joined efforts with Fenway Community Development Corporation on a campaign regulate corporate short-term rentals. There is increasing evidence that nightly rental platforms such as AirBnB, as well as corporate short-stays, take apartments off the long-term rental market and are a factor in driving up rents to unaffordable levels. This is why we have launched a postcard campaign to support legislation from Rep. Aaron Michlewitz (H.3454). For more information on how to get involved in this statewide campaign, or to sign a postcard, please email or call Jason Desrosier at Desrosier@allstonbrightoncdc.org or (617) 787-3874 x206. We will be dropping off the postcards to City Hall and the State House in February.
