#Repost @sustainpsubw with @get_repost ・・・ That 8.2 magnitude earthquake that just happened in the Pacific Ocean was recorded on the @psubrandywine seismometer! (or, it is just the result of move-in day on campus, and our students are so excited to be back 😂). Make note, @pennstatebwcampusliving - we’ll know when there is too much excitement going on in Orchard Hall, as we’ve got the data in the seismograph! .. But in all seriousness, fortunately, no tsunami warnings were necessary. #earthquake #seismograph
One of my favorite amendments.... .. .. .. #Repost @nationalparkservice with @get_repost ・・・ On this day in 1920, the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, guaranteeing women's suffrage. In 1848 the movement for women’s rights launched on a national level with the Seneca Falls Convention organized by Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott. Following the convention, the demand for the vote became a centerpiece of the women’s rights movement. Stanton and Mott, along with Susan B. Anthony and other activists, raised public awareness and lobbied the government to grant voting rights to women. Explore the stories associated with the struggle for suffrage rights and learn about how women continued to demand greater civil liberties even after the passage of the 19th amendment at https://www.nps.gov/subjects/womenshistory/19th-amendment.htm .
