Nautiloid (WIP)

Nautiloids are part of a group of marine invertebrates known as cephalopods (octopus, squid, nautilus, cuttlefish). They originated around 570 to 500 million years ago. There used to be much larger numbers of nautiloid species, but they have now dwindled down to six species known as the chambered or pearly nautiluses. Nautiloids secrete the shell they live in, and move themselves through the water using jet propulsion. Similar to the present day nautilus, they swam across the ocean floor looking for shrimp, small fish, and crustaceans to eat.

This was an awesome sculpt to work on, as my some of my favorite invertebrates are cephalopods!

Dr. Kilmer’s Female Remedy, 1870s 
"Specially adapted to female constitutions." This was the first product made by Dr. Kilmer & Co., an enterprise founded in the 1870s by a successful medical practitioner from Binghamton, New York. Its label proclaims the medicine as "The Great Blood Purifier and System Regulator. The Only Herbal Alterative and Deuprative Ever Discovered." Kilmer’s company was one of the first firms to advertise nationally, and examples of its 18 herbal remedies, including the popular “Swamp Root and Kidney Cure” could be found in homes across the country. Due to their questionable ingredients and extravagant therapeutic claims, proprietary medicines such as Dr. Kilmer’s became targeted by the National Food and Drug Act of 1906.

Moscow’s Shadow in the History of Ukraine

Are the Ukrainians pro-Europeans or rather Russophobes? In the 20th century, the relation between the Ukrainian nation and the Russian power in Petrograd and Moscow was strained by resentments and violence, even though the Soviet propaganda painted the picture of a perfect Ukrainian integration in the Soviet Union.
