A musical couple in Sydney have turned their garage into a musical studio to encourage local musicians. They’ve soundproofed the garage with mattresses and invite friends to watch while they record the performances. Tonight the first act at Red Dog Studio was ‘Dream Good’, a Sydney-based band who are due to release their debut album soon. It’s been described as “intricate, non-linear evocations of what beauty is”. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpunjLEtzbmjVg28h5kpvFg

On a side of the Eureka Tower, on Melbourne’s Southbank, you’ll find a colony of giant golden bees. It’s a giant sculpture made from anodized aluminium.

Eureka Tower is a 297.3-metre (975 ft) skyscraper that once was the world’s tallest residential tower when measured to its highest floor. It was surpassed by Ocean Heights and the HHHR Tower in Dubai. https://www.onlymelbourne.com.au/m/15356/queen-bee-eureka-tower

Art classes make medical students better clinical observers

IMG_2289

Penn-CHOP researchers have found that students who took a course in art observation significantly improved their clinical observation and professional development skills. The art sessions were taught by professional art educators using the “Artful Thinking” teaching approach, which emphasizes introspection and observation before interpretation. In a post-study questionnaire, students who received the art training indicated that they had already begun to apply the skills used in the course in clinically meaningful ways as first-year medical students. Following the success of the study, The Perelman School of Medicine will be offering this Philadelphia Museum of Art course to first-year medical students during the 2017 fall semester. https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2017-09/uops-acc090617.php
