Neanderthal cannibalism at Moula-Guercy, Ardeche, France. (1/63)

The cave site of Moula-Guercy, 80 meters above the modern Rhone River, was occupied by Neanderthals approximately 100,000 years ago. Excavations since 1991 have yielded rich paleontological, paleobotanical, and archaeological assemblages, including parts of six Neanderthals. The Neanderthals are contemporary with stone tools and faunal remains in the same tightly controlled stratigraphic and spatial contexts. The inference of Neanderthal cannibalism at Moula-Guercy is based on comparative analysis of hominid and ungulate bone spatial distributions, modifications by stone tools, and skeletal part representations.  (+info)

Electrolocation-communication discharges of the fish Gymnotus carapo L. (Gymnotidae: Gymnotiformes) during behavioral sleep. (2/63)

Technical problems have hampered the study of sleep in teleosts. The electrical discharges of Gymnotus carapo L. (Gymnotidae: Gymnotiformes) were monitored to evaluate their ease and reliability as parameters to study sleep. The discharges were detected by electrodes immersed in a glass aquarium and were recorded on a conventional polygraph. G. carapo showed conspicuous signs of behavioral sleep. During these periods, opercular beat rates were counted, electric discharges recorded, and the "sharp discharge increase" (SDI) of the orienting reflex was investigated. All 20 animals monitored maintained electrical discharges during behavioral sleep. The discharge frequencies during sleep (50.3 +/- 10.4 Hz) were not significantly different from those observed when the fish was awake and inactive (57.2 +/- 12.1 Hz) (Wilcoxon matched-pairs signed-ranks test, P>0.05). However, the SDI, which was prevalent in the awake fish, was not observed during periods of behavioral sleep. Additional observations showed that the species had cannibalistic habits. When presented with electrical discharges from a conspecific, the sleeping fish showed an initial decrease or pause in discharge frequency, while the awake fish did not have this response. We conclude that the electrical discharges of G. carapo were not conspicuous indicators of behavioral sleep. Discharges may have been maintained during sleep for sensory purposes, i.e., conspecific detection and avoidance of cannibalistic attacks.  (+info)

Group selections among laboratory populations of Tribolium. (3/63)

Selection at the population level or group selection is defined as genetic change that is brought about or maintained by the differential extinction and/or proliferation of populations. Group selection for both increased and decreased adult population size was carried out among laboratory populations of Tribolium castaneum at 37-day intervals. The effect of individual selection within populations on adult population size was evaluated in an additional control series of populations. The response in the group selection treatments occurred rapidly, within three or four generations, and was large in magnitude, at times differing from the controls by over 200%. This response to selection at the populational level occurred despite strong individual selection which caused a decline in the mean size of the control populations from over 200 adults to near 50 adults in nine 37-day intervals. "Assay" experiments indicated that selective changes in fecundity, developmental time, body weight, and cannibalism rates were responsible in part for the observed treatment differences in adult population size. These findings have implications in terms of speciation in organisms whose range is composed of many partially isolated local populations.  (+info)

Does fitness erode in the absence of selection? An experimental test with Tribolium. (4/63)

In the absence of natural selection, average fitness in the population is expected to decline due to the accumulation of deleterious mutations. Replicate populations of flour beetles (Tribolium confusum) were maintained for 22 generations in the virtual absence of selection (random mating, favorable environment, excess of food, and mortality of only 3%). Larva-to-adult survivorship rates were similar in the stock population and selection-free populations. In contrast, starvation resistance of adult beetles from selection-free populations was significantly reduced (by more than 2% per generation). When tested in the favorable environment, beetles in one selection-free population had significantly slower development and smaller sizes of females than beetles from the stock population. Since such changes in these fitness components are usually maladaptive, they indicate possible erosion of fitness under relaxed selection at the rate of 0.1-0.2% per generation. No fitness erosion was detectable in the second selection-free population.  (+info)

Changes in expression and honesty of sexual signalling over the reproductive lifetime of sticklebacks. (5/63)

Fitness costs of signalling are essential in order for reliable sexual signalling to prevail when the interests of the sexes conflict. This means that signalling can be subjected to a life history trade-off between present and future signalling effort. Here, I show that three-spined stickleback males (Gasterosteus aculeatus), who have a single breeding season during which they breed repeatedly, change their red nuptial coloration over the season depending on their body size at the start of breeding. Large males that completed several breeding cycles increased their red coloration over the season, whereas small males, who completed only a few cycles, did not. The increase in coloration was accompanied by an increase in parental success when males were energy constrained, but not when they had access to an unlimited food supply. Red coloration was thus an honest signal of male parental ability despite changes in signal expression when both signalling and parental care were costly and the investments in them changed simultaneously over the reproductive lifetime. However, the honesty of the signal varied over a lifetime. At the penultimate cycle, bright males cannibalized some of their eggs, probably to increase survival to the last cycle, whereas males cared for their offspring independent of coloration at the ultimate cycle.  (+info)

Female control of paternity in the sexually cannibalistic spider Argiope keyserlingi. (6/63)

Sexual conflict theory predicts an antagonistic coevolution, with each sex evolving adaptations and counter-adaptations to overcome a temporary dominance of the other sex over the control of paternity. Polyandry allows sexual selection to operate after mating has commenced, with male and female interests competing for control of fertilization. There are numerous examples of male control of paternity, but few studies have unambiguously revealed female control. Attributing variance in paternity to females is often difficult since male and female influences cannot be separated unambiguously. However, we show that polyandrous female orb-web spiders Argiope keserlingi (Arancidae) control the paternity of their offspring by adjusting the timing of sexual cannibalism. Our experiments reveal that females copulating with relatively smaller males delay sexual cannibalism, thereby prolonging the duration of copulation, and that these males consequently fertilize relatively more eggs.  (+info)

Low metabolic rate in scorpions: implications for population biomass and cannibalism. (7/63)

Scorpions are abundant in arid areas, where their population biomass may exceed that of vertebrates. Since scorpions are predators of small arthropods and feed infrequently across multi-year lifespans, a parsimonious explanation for their observed, anomalously high biomass may be a depressed metabolic rate (MR). We tested the hypothesis that scorpion MR is significantly depressed compared with that of other arthropods, and we also measured the temperature-dependence of the MR of scorpions to quantify the interaction between large seasonal variations in desert temperatures and MR and, thus, long-term metabolic expenditure. Scorpion MR increased markedly with temperature (mean Q(10)=2.97) with considerable inter-individual variation. At 25 degrees C, the MRs of scorpions from two genera were less than 24 % of those of typical terrestrial arthropods (spiders, mites, solpugids and insects) of the same mass. It is likely, therefore, that the low MR of scorpions contributes to their high biomass in arid areas. The combination of high biomass and high production efficiency associated with low MR may also favor a density-dependent "transgenerational energy storage" strategy, whereby juveniles are harvested by cannibalistic adults that may be closely related to their juvenile prey.  (+info)

Genetic documentation of filial cannibalism in nature. (8/63)

Cannibalism is widespread in natural populations of fishes, where the stomachs of adults frequently contain conspecific juveniles. Furthermore, field observations suggest that guardian males routinely eat offspring from their own nests. However, recent genetic paternity analyses have shown that fish nests often contain embryos not sired by the nest-tending male (because of cuckoldry events, egg thievery, or nest piracy). Such findings, coupled with the fact that several fish species have known capabilities for distinguishing kin from nonkin, raise the possibility that cannibalism by guardian males is directed primarily or exclusively toward unrelated embryos in their nests. Here, we test this hypothesis by collecting freshly cannibalized embryos from the stomachs of several nest-tending darter and sunfish males in nature and determining their genetic parentage by using polymorphic microsatellite markers. Our molecular results clearly indicate that guardian males do indeed consume their own genetic offspring, even when unrelated (foster) embryos are present within the nest. These data provide genetic documentation of filial cannibalism in nature. Furthermore, they suggest that the phenomenon may result, at least in part, from an inability of guardians to differentiate between kin and nonkin within their own nests.  (+info)

There are several hypocrisies that emerge from this discovery. One is the immediate cover that western anthros and archeologists attempt to provide for this practice by labeling it survival cannibalism. When Columbus, and later Franciscus de Vitoria, Edward Coke, and their successors, developed and applied legal justifications for the waging of just war against indigenous peoples, evidence of cannibalism was on the top of the list. The coining of the term survival cannibalism provides a Eurocentric shield to suggest that the Jamestown folks were still culturally superior to the Powahtans around therm, but that the English invaders only resorted to cannibalism as a last resort to survive. Any reasonable person would have done the same, right? The resulting implication is that he Indians, on the other hand, were permanently mired in a culturally and spiritually inferior condition (reportedly engaging in cannibalism on a regular basis), requiring remediation (or extermination, whichever ...
A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chi-an-ti. My skin crawls as I hear these infamous words escape the slithering tongue of Dr. Hannibal Lecter - the fictional cannibalistic serial killer from the movie Silence of the Lambs - as he details his gruesome man-eating impulses. The vision of Lecter satiating himself on others of his kind makes me wonder how healthy that would be.. Cannibalism, the act of a species eating a member of its own kind, is believed to go as far back as prehistoric times in humans, and to have occurred all over the globe at one point or another. The Korowai tribe, which resides on the isolated island of Fiji southeastern Papua, is among the few tribes believed to still consume human flesh. So why is cannibalism not a more common practice, only occurring amid ancient or remote cultures, in times of desperation and starvation, or in our grisly fantasies? Other than the social stigma of cannibalism and, you know, the murder ...

A more accurate description of eating recycled dead people might be cannibalism. Or, in the case of feeding dead people to plants and then eating the plants, it might be called cannibalism one-step removed. While from a scientific point of view, the idea of recycling nutrients of dead bodies back into food crops may not seem outlandish, from a humanitarian and dignity point of view, something seems incredibly inhumane and deceptive about calling it recycling.. By the same logic, humans should also be eating their own recycled feces and calling it green living.

Sexual cannibalism is common among most predatory species of mantises in captivity. It has sometimes been observed in natural populations, where about a quarter of male-female encounters result in the male being eaten by the female.[57][58][59] Around 90% of the predatory species of mantises exhibit sexual cannibalism.[60] Adult males typically outnumber females at first, but their numbers may be fairly equivalent later in the adult stage,[5] possibly because females selectively eat the smaller males.[61] In Tenodera sinensis, 83% of males escape cannibalism after an encounter with a female, but since multiple matings occur, the probability of a males being eaten increases cumulatively.[58] The female may begin feeding by biting off the males head (as they do with regular prey), and if mating has begun, the males movements may become even more vigorous in its delivery of sperm. Early researchers thought that because copulatory movement is controlled by a ganglion in the abdomen, not the head, ...

In zoology, cannibalism is the act of one individual of a species consuming all or part of another individual of the same species as food. Cannibalism is a common ecological interaction in the animal kingdom and has been recorded for more than 1500 species [1] It does not, as once believed, occur only as a result of extreme food shortages or artificial conditions, but commonly occurs under natural conditions in a variety of species.[1][2][3] Cannibalism seems to be especially prevalent in aquatic communities, in which up to approximately 90% of the organisms engage in cannibalism at some point of the life cycle. Cannibalism is also not restricted to carnivorous species, but is commonly found in herbivores and detritivores.[2 ...

Meal frequency is a key parameter in fish larviculture, especially in highly cannibalistic species. Knowledge of the biological bases of cannibalism (growth capacity of cannibals, morphological constraints on cannibalism, prey size preference) can help predicting the risks of cannibalism for different feeding schedules under culture conditions. This study relied on the day-by-day analysis of prey size preference and bioenergetics of individual cannibals of the catfish Pseudoplatystoma punctifer (8-65 mm standard length, SL, 0.5-400 mg dry mass, DM) at 28.5 °C under 12L:12D. The results were equated with the ontogenetic variations of morphological factors (head and mouth width) and feed efficiency of larvae feeding on Artemia nauplii, in order to calculate the risks of cannibalism among fish fed 2-7 daily meals. The predation capacities of P. punctifer were highest at 8 mm SL and decreased in larger fish (largest prey = 86% and 70% SL in fish of 8 and ,30 mm SL, respectively). Cannibals of ...
Posted on 09/25/2019 8:12:09 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks. Dostoevsky once said, If God didnt exist, everything is possible. There is wisdom in his observation since, without God, there would be nothing to serve as the ultimate reference for human acts. The eternal law that God established in the universe is inscribed on the human heart. Thus, everyone at all times and places knows right and wrong. Take away God, and all will fall into the most barbaric savagery. Modern secular society officially denies that God exists. Thus, society comes to accept the cruelest practices by breaking down the natural repugnance that comes from transgressing God s law. Abortion and infanticide, for example, used to incite horror among civilized people. Now, it is accepted everywhere. Some taboos remain, but these are now being questioned. Indeed, few could imagine that a mainstream news magazine like Newsweek would propose rethinking the idea of cannibalism. Eating Flesh: The Ultimate Taboo Eating human ...
This article discusses Jehovahs Witnesses view on organ transplants, particularly the once-held view that it is a form of cannibalism.
Now, a reference to cannibalism in any leaders speech is bad enough, but joking about it in the context of the governments betrayal of Tūhoe, and Keys failed attempt to speak for the māori party regarding that betrayal would be absurd if it wasnt so insulting. Not only that, but the reference to Ngāti Porou was all the worse, given the complex history of those two iwi, which was also in the news recently but of which Key appears to have no awareness. Two main questions occur to me: first was this a calculated move to distance himself and the government from the sense he has gone native, or just an idiotic off-the-cuff remark? (Essentially: bad will, or just incompetence?) And second, what will it take to prevent the māori party from walking away? As Marty Mars says, this is a significant matter of the mana of Tūhoe, and the mana of Māori in general. It cannot just be left to lie: either the māori party walks away, or some sort of meaningful reparation - you might call it mana ...

Uh, hate to break this for you, but If you read the ORIGINAL report of Cortez, there was not only ritualized, but casual and societal cannibalism.. We spend the years 1900-2000 ignoring and covering it up in the attempt to relativize civilizations and demonize Christianity.. But the facts are that it was a common practice, from the southwest, to the gulf coast, and all though central america.. After the Aztecs ritually sacrificed victims at the top of the pyramid, their bodies were rolled down the steps, where they were dismembered. Their legs and arms went into a stew that fed the people (socialisms early form of soylent green). The torso and head were fed to the pigs. Upon approaching Tenoochtitlan, Cortez reports seeing the large red pyramids in the distance. Upon being in the city, he realizes the red is from the blood of victims. It was at this point, Cortez says in his diaries that something had to be done. No longer was he there for fame and fortune - he had a goal - to stop the ...
Researchers from the Tulane University School of Medicine have discovered that some cancer cells survive chemotherapy by eating their neighboring tumor cells. The study, which will be published September 17 in the Journal of Cell Biology, suggests that this act of cannibalism provides these cancer cells with the energy they need to stay alive and initiate tumor relapse after the course of treatment is completed.

Researchers have recently found a zombie parasite lurking among freshwater shrimp in Northern Ireland. They found the tiny parasite, Pleistophora mulleri, not only significantly increased cannibalism among shrimp, it also made infected shrimp more voracious, taking much less time to consume their victims.. While cannibalism is actually fairly common in nature and has been recorded in more than 3000 species. Dr Dunn and co-authors said in a new study that although consumption of juveniles by adults is a normal feature of the shrimp Gammarus duebeni celticus feeding patterns, shrimp infected with Pleistophora mulleri ate twice as much of their own kind as uninfected animals.. They attacked juvenile shrimp more often and consumed them more quickly than did uninfected shrimp.. Our work is the first study to ask if cannibalism is affected by being parasitized, said Dr Alison Dunn of the University of Leeds, UK, the senior author on the study.. To be honest the zombie link here is a bit tenuous! ...
Fossilized bones from two Majungatholus individuals show indication of intense feeding, with distinctive sets of tooth marks that match the size and spacing of teeth in Majungatholus jaws, and smaller grooves that match the sharp serrations on Majungatholus blade-like teeth. Rogers and his colleagues are careful to rule out other potential suspects who lived alongside Majungatholus. We examined the jaws and teeth of other known meat-eaters in the Malagasy fauna, including a much smaller carnivorous dinosaur called Masiakasaurus knopfleri, and two large crocodiles stated Rogers, but only Majungatholus possessed the jaws and teeth capable of inflicting the damage the scientists saw. Despite the bad press that human cannibals receive, this discovery of cannibalism in a theropod dinosaur should come as no big surprise, said Rogers. Cannibalism as a feeding strategy is very common in the animal kingdom today. Animals ranging from insects to lions regularly consume members of their own species, ...
Continued from Part I. The idiom, Crossing the Rubicon, often refers to taking a risky course of action, or passing a point of no return. In 49 BC Julius Caesar crossed the Rubicon River, which was considered an act of insurrection under Roman law. Caesar eventually won the civil war, so he and his army were not punished, but the axiom lives on, denoting no turning back for actions taken. Western culture thinks of cannibalism as formerly occurring in far-off third world jungles or the humorous subject of newspaper or television cartoons. To insinuate that Western culture is taking part in direct forms of cannibalism might seem idiotic or preposterous, but it must be recognized that our civilized world has already succumbed to an indirect cannibalistic way of life concerning the preborn, and is on the precipice of Crossing the Rubicon, advancing to direct acts of cannibalism.. It was recently revealed that China has developed a new lucrative business: selling dead baby pills as ...
In both cells and animals, cannibalism can transfer harmful substances from the consumed to the consumer. Macrophages are immune cells that consume their own dead via a process called cannibalistic efferocytosis. Macrophages that contain harmful substances are found at sites of chronic inflammation, yet the role of cannibalism in this context remains unexplored. Here we take mathematical and experimental approaches to study the relationship between cannibalistic efferocytosis and substance accumulation in macrophages. Through mathematical modelling, we deduce that substances which transfer between individuals through cannibalism will concentrate inside the population via a coalescence process. This prediction was confirmed for macrophage populations inside a closed system. We used image analysis of whole slide photomicrographs to measure both latex microbead and neutral lipid accumulation inside murine bone marrow-derived macrophages (104-[Formula: see text]) following their stimulation into an
Our data support the hypothesis that courtship directly increases a males paternity success under polyandry, independent of male quality and of male copulation success. Hence, an influence of the courtship display carries over to episodes that occur after the actual copulation and after the male has vanished.. Interestingly, the effect of courtship on paternity in A. bruennichi appears not to be mediated by measures such as prolonged copulations, because short-courting and long-courting males did not differ in copulation duration. Unlike in some other spiders (e.g. Snow & Andrade 2004), copulation duration in A. bruennichi is directly related to sperm transfer and relative paternity success (Schneider et al. 2006). This suggests that the courtship display influences paternity success via a different mechanism from that shown for sexual cannibalism, which increases paternity success by prolonging copulation (Elgar 1998; Elgar & Schneider 2004, this study). We found that courtship decreased the ...
Cannibal Girls is a 1973 Canadian independent comedy horror film directed by Ivan Reitman and stars Eugene Levy, Andrea Martin, and Ronald Ulrich. It is about three young women being led by a Reverend who preaches cannibalism. The story gives off an urban legend feel, and was made as a spoof of traditional horror films. This film is known for the warning bell gimmick, which rang in theatres to warn the more squeamish members of the audience for impending gory scenes. The films setting, Farnhamville, may be a reference to Robert A. Heinleins 1964 science fiction novel Farnhams Freehold, about a dystopian future in which cannibalism figured prominently. A couple are relaxing in a snowy forest near a small town in Ontario called Farnhamville. Suddenly, an axe wielding female assailant kills the boyfriend, rips the girlfriends shirt open, and puts a dab of blood between her female victims breasts. Then, we see the protagonists, Clifford Sturges (Eugene Levy), and Gloria Wellaby (Andrea ...

As far as the examples above, they are jokes, and the female antagonist can be easily replaced witha male in most cases. The manits joke is fairly specific, but it is nothing more than that. Also, most people who take the time to investigate the sexual cannibalism of many arthopods quickly find out that though prevelant, it is not universal. The fact is that when it occurs with arthopods (both insects and arachnids) it is the female that ...
Genetic markers commonly found in modern humans all over the world could be evidence that our earliest ancestors were cannibals, according to new research. Scientists suggest that even today many of us carry a gene that evolved as protection against brain diseases that can be spread by eating human flesh.
Chelsea Laine Wellss difficult and haunting The Breathing Dead appears in the April issue. She talks to us about writing unsettling stories, her uncontrollable urges, and canned pasta.. 1. What uncontrollable urges do you have? How dangerous are they?. Most of my uncontrollable urges have to do with eating junk food like Im involved in some kind of dare, which I am not. The eating urge is only dangerous in the sense of future cholesterol issues. I think my urges more come out as morbid obsessions with death and pain and lust and all the things that twist us out of shape and cause a loss of control, and that surfaces in my writing. Rape, necrophilia, sexual cannibalism, children murdering children, infanticide, Munchausen by proxy, suicide, addiction - these are all subjects of my stories, all of which are love stories about regular people gone off the rails. So: as a person Im not dangerous, but the inside of my head is, and as a result my poor characters are constantly in danger.. 2. The ...
Adquirida / Adquired 2011. Juan Uslé unfolds his painterly work in series, or -as he would say- families of works. The Manthis paintings are named after the homonymous insect, known for practicing sexual cannibalism - females devour the males during copulation. These works share a geometric structure, upon which the artist then paints more organic forms. Uslé thinks of these works as sites of friction between two kinds of abstraction: a more ascetic, rigorous one perhaps exemplified by Mondrian; and a more lyrical one, which would refer more to the work of Miró. The two confront each other in the space of the canvas. Uslé thinks of this formal tension as a metaphor for his split lifestyle. Indeed, the artist spends about one half his time in the quintessentially urban New York, and the other in a small village in Cantabria. The Manthis express the tension and friction that exist between the two lifestyles and working conditions: the orderly grid of the city is somehow defied by the formal ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Effects of maternal care and selection for low mortality on tyrosine hydroxylase concentrations and cell soma size in hippocampus and nidopallium caudolaterale in adult laying hen. AU - Nordquist, R.E.. AU - Zeinstra, E.C.. AU - Rodenburg, T.B.. AU - van der Staay, F.J.. PY - 2013. Y1 - 2013. N2 - Feather pecking and cannibalism in farm-kept laying hens are damaging behaviors both in terms of animal welfare and economic loss, and a major challenge in modern poultry farming. Both rearing with a foster hen and genetic selection have been demonstrated to reduce feather pecking in laying hens. We examined the effects of rearing with a foster hen, genetic selection for low mortality from cannibalism, and interactions between both, using cellular morphology and levels of the rate-limiting enzyme in dopamine production, tyrosine hydroxylase, in the hippocampus and nidopallium caudolaterale (NCL) as a potential measure for laying hen welfare. Hens from the second generation of a ...
Once it starts, this is difficult. Try to figure out who is the culprit by spending time quietly watching your birds. Note: often this is a single bird, who will show no feather lesions (although all the other birds may have them). Separating this bird may help, but sometimes you may need to get rid of that dominant bird. Be sure you fix the underlying causes (space, not enough distractions, perch height), or another bird will simply step into that dominant, bullying role in the flock. For the birds that have been pecked, if the wounds are not deep, using a non-irritating lotion or salve that acts as a pecking deterrent may help them heal (and avoid further pecking). Some products combine aloe vera gel with food-grade coloring to visually mask pecking lesions (blood or raw skin) and to seal up the wounds. However, just treating the wounds isnt enough: a combination of methods including fibrous vegetables (as toys) and improved housing conditions are needed to minimize pecking trauma. Be ...
Citation: Dennis, R.L., Cheng, Z.Q., Cheng, H. 2008. Genetic variations in chicken aggressive behavior: The role of serotonergic system. Poultry Science. 87:612-620. Interpretive Summary: Aggression and cannibalism are of increasing concern to animal welfare and production in husbandry industry. Our research group recently investigated the roles of two major serotonin receptor pathways (5-HT1A and 1B) in mediating aggressiveness in laying hens from strains exhibiting high and low aggressiveness. Our findings provide evidence for the heritable aggression mediation through genetic differences in the serotonergic system in chickens. Our results also show two distinct mediating pathways of aggression through the 5-HT1A and 1B receptors that are prominent in birds of low and high aggressiveness, respectively. The understanding of the genetic and environmental regulation of aggression through the serotonergic system is essential for reducing aggression and cannibalism through selective breeding or ...
Feather Pecking Also known as: Cannibalism Feather pecking is behaviour which often leads to extensive damage to the plumage of laying hens. A more serious problem is one of abnormal aggressive feather pecking and cannibalism. The problem can occur in all systems, including free range.
A masterful and compulsively readable book that challenges our preconceived notions about a behavior often sensationalized in our culture and, until just recently, misunderstood in the scientific world. -Ian Tattersall, Curator Emeritus, American Museum of Natural History, and author of The Strange Case of the Rickety Cossack For centuries scientists have written off cannibalism as a bizarre phenomenon with little biological significance. Its presence in nature was dismissed as a desperate response to starvation or other life-threatening circumstances, and few spent time studying it. A taboo subject in our culture, the behavior was portrayed mostly through horror movies or tabloids sensationalizing the crimes of real-life flesh-eaters. But the true nature of cannibalism--the role it plays in evolution as well as human history--is even more intriguing (and more normal) than the misconceptions weve come to accept as fact. In Cannibalism: A Perfectly Natural History,zoologist Bill Schutt sets the ...
1. Greed-Driven Mutilations. It is possible to practice animal husbandry in a way that an animal only has one bad day (the day the animal is slaughtered), but thanks to factory farming, which packs animals together over their own waste, they endure a lot of additional suffering.. Chickens are debeaked during their second week of life to prevent cannibalism and feed wastage, says an online guide for chicken growers-though the industrys abusive battery egg cages, not the animals, are responsible for the cannibalism. Debeaking, partial or total removal of a birds beak with a hot knife or laser while it is fully conscious, causes intense pain, shock and bleeding, says veterinarian Nedim C. Buyukmihci, emeritus professor of veterinary medicine at the University of California.. A similar fate awaits pigs who respond to unnatural conditions by biting each others tails. The factory farm solution? Cut off their tails with a pliers and no painkiller-an institutionalized mutilation called tail ...
Some mechanisms of diversification involve ecological interactions exhibited as frequency-dependence [11]. This includes niche creation [11, 12] and frequency-dependent coexistence due to cross-feeding, where the cross-feeder organism is maintained in balance with the producer [59], or through cannibalism of one or the other coexisting type [28]. Another frequency-dependent scenario is when two or more resources in a system result in specialization of different bacteria on different resources in the same environment [11, 60]. None of these ecological scenarios are readily extended to the current studies. Cross-feeding and cannibalism do not appear to have evolved in the chemostats, probably because the time-scale is relatively short. None of the sequenced mutations hint at cross-feeding, such as the acs mutation noted in [8]. There is no evidence for multiple resources, multiple niches or mutations enhancing uptake or regulation of alternative carbon sources besides glucose. Nevertheless, ...
The workshop was truly inspiring. The only downside is that I now really, really want to write a novel on death and funerals in the 19th century, without having the time to do so… *Adds novel on Victorian death and funerals to bucket list and starts carrying around a notebook to jot down ideas*.. The papers were no less wonderful than the workshops. During the very first panel of the conference I had the pleasure of listening to Laura Fosters interesting paper Consuming Paupers: Cannibalism in Workhouse Representations. In her paper she discussed how the workhouse diet became connected to Cannibalism and how this is represented in contemporary fiction, ballads and satirical illustrations. Foster, for example, discussed the ballad The Workhouse Boy which is about a boy who goes missing during Christmas and is eventually discovered to be one of the ingredients of the workhouse soup. Drawing on this example and others, Foster explained that the workhouse soup eventually became a melting ...

Imagine if Television and Curtis Mayfield formed a band and tried to re-record Rubber Soul. Thats a tease of what you get with Love & Cannibalism (2016), the 11th studio release for 20 year Minneapolis-based veterans The Honeydogs. This record might be the bands best, most rocking collection of songs in that long career. That says a great deal considering previous records like 10,000 Years, Heres Luck, and Amygdala have been called masterpieces--the band comfortably exploring varied musical styles (psychedelia, experimental, jazz) while being true to their roots in American music.. Lead singer-songwriter Adam Levy released an introspective and emotionally honest solo record in late 2015 about his sons death, the heavily acoustic Naubinway. It made many Best of international lists. Love & Cannibalism is a different animal, featuring Levys incisive lyrics & a band in top form, mixing Motown and Muscle Shoals soul with British rock.

Scheme 1. Syntheses of 2 CMP scaffolds and integration of Rh catalyst into these. After synthesizing these hybrid materials, the authors wanted to systematically change the molecules next to the Rh center and distant from it to see which one has more impact on the overall catalysis. While any variation in the structure of distant CMP host (BpyMP-1 vs BpyMP-2 in Scheme 1) itself had no apparent impact on the catalytic efficiency, different substituents (NH2- an electron donating group, NO2- an electron withdrawing group and H- as the reference) at the nearby bpy had very distinct efficiency in CO2 reduction. This proves the superior impact of local electronics on the efficiency compared to the long-range electronic structure. Very interestingly, the Rh- BpyMP-1-NH2 catalyst has been tested in direct sunlight and has been shown to work quite efficiently as well instead of the variation in angle of the incident light over longer time. The authors further established a correlation between the ...
