— Throughout history, human beings have used the whistle for everything from hailing a cab to carrying a tune. Now, an orangutan’s spontaneous whistling is providing scientists at Great Ape Trust of Iowa new insights into the evolution of speech and learning. In a paper published in December in Primates, an international journal of primatology that provides a forum on all aspects of primates in relation to humans and other animals, Great Ape Trust scientist Dr. Serge Wich and his colleagues provide the first-ever documentation of a primate mimicking a sound from another species without being specifically trained to do ...

Emerson meant to talk about a 1953 Corvette, but being the forward thinking ALP type he is, was unable to project his mind that far back into the past. The ALP is always a couple of years ahead in their thinking. 09:40am | 23/06/10 ALP are quite readily and repeatedly happy to rehash the past, whining about what the others did or didnt do. 09:57am | 23/06/10 @persephone…... the gift that keeps on giving! Socialism was forward thinking in the fifties pers; welcome to half a century later. 10:09am | 23/06/10 Er, Ben, careful, egg on face… The 1953 Corvette reference arose out of a Liberal MP’s statement.

The American Spectator : Obam-La-Di, Obam-La-Da
Paul McCartney is simply another rich and talented elitist who is too busy to get the facts, so he supports the urban legend that is passed along. Not matter how rich liberals get, no matter what they discover, they are liberals first, last and always. It's a character flaw for which are few cures. Long term chronic marijuana usage has been tied to several mental illnesses so perhaps Sir Paul is simply a victim of his own largess, i.e., too little reading and too much dope smoking. But when did Macca ever criticize REAGAN publicly? Maybe Macca knows talent when he sees it. I dislike the Bushes for the same ... market research, surveys and trends

One Hundred Percent All Beef Baloney: Lessons from the Oprah Trial ...
If you're trying to make sense of the recent "food disparagement" lawsuit by Texas beef producers against Oprah Winfrey, it might help to remember Connie Grieg's moment of terror on the evening of April 23, 1996. The date was one week after the now-famous program in which Oprah had allowed a debate between Gary Weber of the National Cattlemen's Beef Association (NCBA) and vegetarian activist Howard Lyman. Lyman had easily won the argument, horrifying Oprah and her audience with vivid details about cannibalistic animal-feeding practices and their link to England's outbreak of mad cow disease. Angry, the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

In 1869, a British inventor named Montague Redgrave settled in America and manufactured bagatelle tables out of his factory in Cincinnati, Ohio. In 1871 Redgrave was granted US Patent #115,357 for his "Improvements in Bagatelle" [1], which replaced the cue at the player's end of the table with a coiled spring and a plunger. The player shot balls up the inclined playfield using this plunger, a device that remains in pinball to this day. This innovation made the game friendlier to players. The game also shrunk in size and began to fit on top of a bar or counter. The balls became marbles and the wickets became small ...
Google Answers: 1840s northern U.S. culture of innovation
We are in the process of trying to paint a verbal picture of the industrialized, innovative north in the pre-Civil War years. Specifically, we are looking for contemporary celebration in the popular culture of the American ideals of innovation and exploration from about 1830 through the 1850s. We'd like quotes from sources like newspaper editorials, popular ballads and broadsides, talk of folk heroes like Davy Crockett, and celebrations of "Yankee ingenuity" as in the connection of the B&O railroad of the East to Chicago for the first time in 1853. We're looking for references not to anti-slavery feeling ...
