Thomas Nuttall

Post by taixyz1992 on Wed Nov 03, 2010 2:56 am

Thomas Nuttall (January 5, 1786 - September 10, 1859) was an English botanist and zoologist, who lived and worked in America from 1808 until 1841.[1]

Nuttall was born in the village of Long Preston, near Settle in the West Riding of Yorkshire and spent some years as an apprentice printer in England. Soon after going to the United States he met Professor Benjamin Smith Barton in Philadelphia. Barton encouraged his strong interest in natural history.

In 1810 he travelled to the Great Lakes and in 1811 travelled on the Astor Expedition led by William Price Hunt on behalf of John Jacob Astor up the Missouri River. Nuttall was accompanied by the English botanist John Bradbury, who was collecting plants on behalf of Liverpool botanical gardens. Nuttall and Bradbury left the party at the trading post with the Arikara Indians in South Dakota, and continued further uprivkier with Ramsay Crooks. In August they returned to the Arikara post and joined Manuel Lisa's group on a return to St. Louis.

Although Lewis and Clark had travelled this way previously, many of their specimens had been lost. Therefore the many of the plants collected by Nuttall on this trip were unknown to science. The imminent war between Britain and America caused him to return to London via New Orleans. In London he spent time organising his large plant collection and discussing his experiences with other scientists.

MSNBC suspends prime-time TV host Keith Olbermann

Olbermann played a key role in election coverage

Battle of television news titans
The US broadcasting network MSNBC has suspended prime-time host Keith Olbermann for making political contributions.

The Politico news website said he had contributed to the campaigns of three Democratic candidates.

MSNBC President Phil Griffin said Olbermann had been suspended without pay.

During coverage of the US mid-term elections, Olbermann was one of the network's key presenters.

"Mindful of NBC News policy and standards, I have suspended him indefinitely without pay," Mr Griffin said, according to a statement quoted by the Huffington Post.

With Rachel Maddow, Olbermann has been one of the most prominent hosts on the network, which analysts say has come to be seen as liberal-aligned.

The BBC's Jonny Dymond, in Washington says that while America's 24-hour news channels are increasingly politicised and polarised, it appears there is a limit.

The suspension comes just a couple of weeks after America's national radio network, NPR, sacked one of its commentators for saying that he became nervous when flying with passengers wearing what he called "Muslim garb".

Juan Williams' dismissal raised an outcry on the political right which accused the network, which receives some federal funding, of liberal bias.
