Top Stories: Police Say Hopkins Student Fell from High-Rise, Fed Hill Bars Discourage Helping Panhandlers, DeRay Mckesson Leaving City Schools Gig

0 Written by: | Friday, Jul 21, 2017 4:45pm

The most-read piece on our site this week was a sad update about the death of a 19-year-old student athlete at Johns Hopkins University. Abigail Bastien “fell from quite a distance” from a high-rise on N. Charles Street to her death, Baltimore police spokesman T.J. Smith said at a news conference on Monday. Bastien’s body had been discovered on the morning of Thursday, July 13.

Smith said investigators weren’t sure exactly high up she was before her fall. The evidence detectives pulled together indicated it was an accidental death, he said, noting that “nothing in this case points towards homicide.”

Members of the Hopkins community and Bastien’s hometown of Sandusky, Ohio, mourned her passing. Bastien was a sprinter on the Hopkins track-and-field team and a member of the school’s Alpha Phi sorority chapter. Her high school track coach told the Sandusky Register she “was a person with a heart of gold and was all about everyone first and putting herself second.”

Medical research regularly uses mice to test out hypotheses. And usually, those mice are dead. But some really exciting research out of Johns Hopkins has found a new way to study the neuroscience of mice–by peeking into their brains while they’re still alive. Yep, you heard that right–researchers were able to observe the mice brains with such precision that they could see how proteins changed when the mice formed new memories. In real time. That’s nuts.

catch of the day fish (2)Is Johns Hopkins trying to steal the Maryland Film Festival’s thunder? Probably not. It would be pretty hard at this point to outshine what’s become one of our city’s annual cultural highlights. But JHU does present its own four day film festival every year, and their selection of carefully-curated features, shorts, documentaries, animations, and experimental works from emerging filmmakers can be just what you need to prime yourself for the MFF a couple of months from now. Or to simply get you through these last dreary winter days.
