We Got A State Microbe!
We did it, after 2 years of intense lobbying, hundreds of emails and letters from people throughout New Jersey and the world, the governor signed into law that the official State Microbe of New Jersey is Streptomyces griseus.  We are the second state to have an Official Microbe, but the first to have an Official Bacterium!  Thanks to everyone who participated!
This footage is from the news broadcast New Jersey Matters, where I talk about microbes and science with the host, Larry Mendte: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgvPK8_Pus8 Please take a look!
Cool tie, huh?

New Jersey State Microbe Approved by Assembly
On February 25, 2019 The NJ  Assembly unanimously voted in favor of designating an  Official State Microbe, Streptomyces griseus. This brings NJ one step closer to being the second state in the US (and the world) to have a symbolic microbe.
This action sequence shows me (seated) casting the vote for Assemblywoman Annette Quijano (standing) in the Assembly Chamber. Wow, that was cool, and an honor!  ASW Quijano was the principal sponsor in the Assembly. The vote was 76 to zero.
Strep griseus produces streptomycin, the first broad spectrum antibiotic and the first significant antibiotic found in America. It was discovered in 1943 in New Brunswick, NJ
Talk about pressure “Don’t press the red button!”

NJ Microbe news coverage!
While Drs Eveleigh and  Warhol were at the Eagleton workshop, the Rutgers Daily Targum (university newspaper) ran a cover story on our efforts to get an Official State Microbe  for New Jersey!  Great timing!

Drs Warhol and Eveleigh at Eagleton Workshop
John Warhol and Doug Eveleigh participated in the Scientists in Politics workshop at the Eagleton Institute on Nov 29. It was a great networking experience and we were able to share our experience with getting a State Microbe with the other attendees. Great news is that now Chancellor Molloy has his own  Periodic Table of Microbes poster for his office wall!
75th anniversary of streptomycin is coming up. Get ready for a celebration!

Hi , my mother teaches science and she'd love to have one of your periodic table , how can I get it ? I've tryed to write a private message but I don't why it wasn't allowed to me .
Hi,
I really don’t know how old this message is! You can get the periodic table posters on ETSY https://www.etsy.com/no-en/shop/WarholScience or the book at https://tinyurl.com/Warhol-Small-Guide
Thanks!

A lot of biology-lovers unfortunately see termites as less-cool versions of ants (don’t get me started) but termite microbiomes are at least 30.5 times cooler than those of ants. At least.
Opening up a hindgut of a termite reveals an unbelievable number of bizarre single-celled organisms, most of which have yet to be named or described by science. 
Tumblr media
What’s more, different species of termites can have radically different microbiomes. Two colonies of termites living in one log can have symbiotic microbes that are literally tens of millions of years apart in evolution (and in some cases, the termites themselves are only separated by a few million years of evolution). In my totally-unbiased opinion, this is one of the biggest unsolved mysteries in biology. What purpose do all of these different microbes have? Why is there so much microbial diversity among termites? Why don’t they all just have the same set of microbes? 
The more you look into it, the more questions are raised. 
Also if you have termites in your house you should totally ship them to me cause LOVE termites

Happy Thanksgiving!
Thanks to all the people all over the world who actually read my book! I think that readers have purchased everywhere except Antarctica!
If you are a scientist you should read it because it presents science in a new and engaging way.
If you are a normal human, like most people on Earth, you should read it because it is actually fun and engaging, and you’ll learn new things painlessly!
