Time flies when you're having fun! 2018 was a year full of growth, change, and of course, video. Here is a look at the highlights of the year, as well as some surprising facts.
Pro Tip from Our Producer
The best thing about my job as a video producer? That's a tough one, but I decided to think it through in the interest of looking back on 2018 and looking ahead to 2019. 

#TheBest: I get to help people share their story.

That is the best part of my job, hands-down. First, I get to be a sponge and learn so many cool things about people, occupations, passions, and about life. Then, like a gemcutter, I get to refine these ideas into their clearest form. Then, I get to share it with the world, often surprising and delighting my subject by revealing things that even they didn't know about themselves. Storytellers have played a critical part in collecting, preserving and sharing the treasures of humanity since the beginning of time. And I'm blessed to be one.

Things About Things
Odd facts about plants... just for fun.

Another new year means one more opportunity to start fresh, change for the better or, if you are botanically inclined, turn over a new leaf. But change is difficult and, if you are a plant, producing leaves can take some time. For biologists studying plants, the time it takes to grow a seed into a leafy seed-producing adult can be intolerably long. That’s why in 1987 Dr. Paul H. Williams’ New Year’s resolution was to speed up his scientific research.

Dr. Williams studied plant genetics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He worked with a plant called Brassica rapa, which is related to turnips and cabbage and takes six months to complete its life cycle. Plant geneticists spend a lot of time pollinating plants, collecting seeds and looking for different traits in each successive generation. Can you imagine waiting half a year to complete one step of an experiment? It was just too much! By crossing his Brassica plants with related species, Dr. Williams was able to drop the generation time of his plants from 6 months to just 5 weeks. His Wisconsin Fast Plants® were a huge hit and are publicly available as an educational tool for very young, aspiring scientists with short attention spans. Never before has turning over a new leaf been so quick and effortless . . . now about getting that gym membership . . .
