  • Lemurs match scent of a friend to sound of her voice

    Animals News -- ScienceDaily
    15 Apr 2014 | 5:38 pm
    Scientists report that ring-tailed lemurs respond more strongly to the scents and sounds of female lemurs when the scent they smell and the voice they hear belong to the same female -- even when she's nowhere in sight. Linking a particular female's call with her unique aroma gives the lemurs a way to figure out if she is nearby, since the scents tend to linger.
  • SeaWorld’s Shamu Show Gets a Reprieve

    When California Assemblyman Richard Bloom introduced a bill that would bring an end to Shamu shows at SeaWorld, he probably didn't expect it to succeed. But in shelving the whole issue for a year so there can be more "study", the Water, Parks and Wildlife Committee has at least left open the possibility of reconsidering it next year. SeaWorld hired one of California's most successful lobbyists, Scott Wetch, whom the L.A. Times has described as “blunt, shrewd and intimidating,” to do the rounds of committee members in advance of the hearing. His basic strategy was to scare them into…

  • The Great Irony in Showtime’s Climate Show

    Michael Mountain
    16 Apr 2014 | 12:57 pm
    There's a terrible irony right there in the opening sequence of the first episode of the new Showtime series Years of Living Dangerously. Nelly Montez describes what happened to her and thousands of other workers when Cargill, one of the world's largest factory farm operations, closed its slaughterhouse in the small town of Plainview, Texas. As she explains it: "We never saw it coming ... That day when they told us, they took us into the cafeteria ... It was like they'd rounded us up like a herd of cattle ... and they just hit us over the head with it. To this day, Montez and the 2,200…

    While traveling this week, I had a chance to see the movie Noah. (If you haven't yet seen it, watch out for a minor spoiler alert below.) Most of the reviews have noted that this isn't your typical robe-and-sandals story with a deep-voiced deity intoning commands to a reluctant prophet. It's about life on a blackened, blasted, wasted world, and whether our fellow animals can ever be safe while there are still humans around – even just one family of us. In this version of the flood story, once everybody is finally all aboard the ark and the deluge is unleashed, Noah reveals to his family…

    I'm traveling this week, so here's just a brief rundown on some stories from the week and where you can find them: Is SeaWorld Capsizing? I'm wary of counting blessings (let alone chickens) before they hatch, but SeaWorld is taking on a lot of water right now. This week: Attendance at its marine circuses was down 13 percent in the first quarter of the year.  SeaWorld was outed for dosing the killer whales against veterinary advice with valium-type drugs, all in a vain attempt to stop them from going nuts in their tanks. The company is urgently lobbying California lawmakers not to pass a…

  • Diverse gene pool critical for tigers' survival, say experts

    16 Apr 2014 | 6:08 am
    Increasing tigers' genetic diversity -- via interbreeding and other methods -- and not just their population numbers may be the best solution to saving this endangered species, according to research. Iconic symbols of power and beauty, wild tigers may roam only in stories someday soon. Their historical range has been reduced by more than 90 percent. But conservation plans that focus only on increasing numbers and preserving distinct subspecies ignore genetic diversity, according to the study. In fact, under that approach, the tiger could vanish entirely.

    When Friendship Comes: Rod Simpson C.S. Lewis wrote that friendship is born at that moment when one man or woman says to another: "What! You too? I thought no one but myself…" I think that is so.  Friendship requires, I think, the ability to give love and receive it, a willingness to be vulnerable, to share one's soul with another. Somewhere, there needs to be a connection of the soul. In my life I have had a number of challenges, none more enduring and difficult than love, friendship and money. I first felt the power of love when I saw my daughter Emma being born, I think, and then,…

    By Jason Bittel Tasing saddles: In exchange for a fee, ranchers in Nevada are allowed to graze their cattle on public lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management. But one rancher, Cliven Bundy, stopped paying that fee 21 years ago, saying he doesn’t recognize the federal government as even existing. And because Bundy refuses to pay the more than $1 million buckaroos he owes the BLM, the government confiscated the cows on its land. In reply Bundy has rallied protesters and armed militiamen at a camp in a desert northeast of Las Vegas. So far, the BLM is trying to avoid spilling blood over…

So easy, in fact, that a sixth-grader could figure it out. That’s what happened when 14-year-old Suvir Mirchandani, concerned about the heavy paper and ink use at his Pittsburgh-area middle school, began thinking about ways to slow down consumption and cut costs. (Well, that and he needed a project for the school science fair).As CNN explains it, after collecting samples of his teachers’ handouts, Mirchandani measured…

    The abundant Puerto Rican coqui frog has experienced changes since the 1980s that are likely due to global warming, biologists report. The call of the male coqui became shorter and higher pitched, and the animal itself has become smaller. The study is the first to show the effect of temperature change on a species of frogs in the tropics over a period of more two decades.

These birds include a cave-dwelling bird that is so oily it can be used as a lamp and a bird that has claws on its wings and a stomach like a cow. The new rankings will be used in a major conservation initiative called the Edge of Existence program at the London Zoo. The zoo has already identified several species like the huge monkey-eating Philippine eagle that are at once distinct, endangered, and suffer from lack of attention.

    Tomography refers to imaging underground formations by sections or sectioning, through the use of any kind of penetrating wave. When companies or individuals shop for EarthImager software, they will find that they have the chance to make the most of the land that they are studying or have purchased. Scientists will be able to survey the land that they are studying in real-time rather than waiting to develop images or for a slow program to put out the images. This equipment is designed to make the work of a tomography scientist or a survey team as simple as possible. Even someone who is not…

His full name is Barrett Griner IV, and in true Beyonce and Jay Z fashion, he named his dog IV after himself being the fourth Barrett Griner.

    Thanks to the American College of Veterinary Behaviorist for the Photo and Logo THIS is what to look for online! I get a lot of aggression questions. I suppose that is because there are a lot of dogs that have aggression issues and sometimes we even create aggression in our dogs by over correcting them, beating them, or even just spoiling them (yes spoiling them can create just as big a monster). But over the internet it is impossible for me to see the behavior and all the dynamics of what is going on in the dog’s environment.  Even video doesn’t do the justice to training that I need.

They kind of expect their dog to go from a Kindergarten education straight into college without any training or education in between. People think if they have taken their dog to a dog obedience training class, or puppy class, or have read a book and done some very basic training at home (for some it was years ago) that their dog should be as well behaved and well trained as my dogs or other dogs they see on TV or online in videos.

    Two lovely Canada Geese are peacefully swimming on the still waters of Lake Chillisquaque, when out of nowhere comes the Evil One who flies in, making his presence known with great squawks and tongue protruding.  He is announcing to all that this is his territory and others are not welcome here. That show of offense didn’t dislodge his intruder, so he gets in his face and squawks loudly and attempts to use force.  He drives at him this way… and that way… finally exploding off the water towards him… Continuing the chase in the air. Watch out for that beak!  …

Carloads of people lined the roads in the early evening, scopes were set up and shared, and people were so excited to actually see a Snowy Owl,…
