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 ...

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 ...
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 ...
Wow. Some one seems a little touchy… " will umfairly characterize women as villains WHENEVER possible." Really? So, anytime a woman is in a story or an anecdote she WILL be the villain? The cartoon is then used as an example of this. However, this article stinks of bias, being written by a woman who is obviuously tryong to push an agenda using unrelated facts. ALL human men do not see woman as villains anymore than ALL human woman view men as villains. These are ideas that are pishe don us by media, but they are not the true feelings of the average person. 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 ...

The 17th-century church of St Michans in Dublin is a dull enough building, known for the curious human remains preserved in the exceptional dryness of its ancient crypt. When I was taken to see the celebrated St Michans mummies, 60 years ago, I already knew of the church from M.R. James, whose tales of supernatural terror entirely possessed my nine-year-old imagination. We entered the crypt, and it was as though my schoolfellows and I had stumbled into the pages of The Treasure of Abbot Thomas, Canon Alberics Scrapbook or another of the horrid inventions in Ghost Stories of an Antiquary. Led past stacks of disintegrating coffins, from which skulls and yellowing bones spilled across the dusty floor, we were introduced to the crypts principal attraction: the strangely preserved corpse of the so-called Crusader - a gigantic figure whose piously crossed legs had been broken to fit them into his narrow sarcophagus. The leathery cadaver was propped in a sitting position, so that visitors ...

12/20/08 Past due for an entry in the Health Diary and the fact of the matter is that I was riding kind of low after my last infusion. The usual wiriness (plus an excess of spasticity, i.e. "shaky legs") kicked in, then I was in the manual wheelchair in Illinois, but came back with a slight cold, which dragged me down again. I got quickly reaccustomed to the scooter, then made it almost through the week, when-- ironically, since I had another infusion in the morning--I fell in the bathroom at work again Friday afternoon. I didnt hurt myself and was quickly put back up on the scooter thanks to colleages Joni and Joyce, but it gets worse. My scooter, recently repaired, had been slowing down again when going in reverse, indicating the same damned problem (a design flaw, in my opinion) that was just fixed. Of course Murphys Law kicked in when I made a mental note to deal with the scooter as soon as the cold was gone and I was back to "normal." At 11 PM last night, BeBe decides not another inch ...
Figure. Oral view of two juvenile Architeuthis. A - Atlantic specimen. B - Pacific specimen. Drawings from Roper and Young (1972).. Several small specimens have been reported as architeuthids, but close inspection reveals them to belong to other families. One specimen reported by Toll & Hess (1981) as Architeuthis is a mature male at 167 mm ML, a remarkably small size for a true architeuthid.. Cephalopods are known to be very fast growing animals. Some species of small, shallow water forms reach sexual maturity in 6-8 months, and most species about which growth, age and maturity data are available reach reproductive capacity within 12-18 months. Many of the specimens of Architeuthis that have been recovered have been mature, especially the females (which in any case are much more abundant in collections). But the age at maturity of Architeuthis is not known with certainty. One study suggests that adult size is attained within 3 years (Gauldie, et al., 1994). Even at the rapid growth rate ...
This research was designed to investigate the effect of the Cannibal Interchange Bioreactor (CIB) Hydraulic Retention Time (HRT) and Interchange Rate on the solids destruction in the Cannibal system. Interchange Rate (IR) is defined as the percent of sludge by mass interchanged between the activated sludge system and the bioreactor on daily basis. The first phase of this study has looked at the effect of three different CIB HRTs, 5 days, 7 days and 10 days. The IR during phase I was 10%. The second phase of this study focused on the effect of different IRs, 15%, 10%, 7%, 5% and 4%. The HRT in the CIB during the second phase was 7 days. The results showed that the 7 days HRT can be recommended as the minimum retention period for the Cannibal process and the 10% interchange rate gave maximum solids destruction than the other interchange rates ...

The very first comment of the four here under all comments connects Absorption and Crazyhouse as about chess variants number 1 and number 2 for decades, a matter for poll or opinion. Absorption Chess was put up February 1999. It is in the ECV of 1994. How old are Absorption and Cannibal? Someone beat me to an ECV for an estimate. Designer Cannon refers to the idea of pieces merging with other pieces. That is used occasionally before 1994 in other ECV examples too. Strict Cannibal here is somewhat different whilst being related in that the movement of capturer changes fully to the captives. Longtime standby Absorption, however, is in fact additive by merging, the common re-creation within CVPage material of the quite old idea. Besides his own, Cannon is referring to Dunihos Fusion of November 1999, Fusion Chessgi of November 1999, and Assimilation of March 2001 among others that may be pertinent. Betzas different styles of augmented piece-type powers are also worth looking at in ...

Anyway, Im guessing a lot of people have heard the new Cannibal Corpse record and, while its not exactly mindblowing or redefining any genres, its a totally solid slab of no-bullshit death metal that sees Corpsegrinder and the gang hammering away in the style that defined and continues to define them. I wont start making comparisons between Torture and their earlier works because, frankly, Im not a die-hard Cannibal Corpse fan and I dont care enough about their lenghty output, but suffice it to say that their new record is getting quite a bunch of spins on my iPod ...

Overall mortality due to various anomalies was 6.67% and there was no known etiology for around 2% of the losses. 2.74% of birds were culled over the whole period. Diseases caused higher mortality during brooding (50.4%) and laying (31.3%) than during growing (18.3%). Coccidiosis was the major problem causing 19.1% mortality with higher incidence during brooding and in birds kept on the floor. Egg prolapse and enteritis resulted in 12.1% and 8.4% mortality, respectively. About 7% of loss was due to disease outbreaks including E. coli, Infectious Coryza and Chronic Respiratory disease (CRD). Losses due to Infectious Bronchitis (IB), Omphalitis, yolk sac infection, ascities and feed toxicity in each case were around 6%, while Hydro-pericardium syndrome and cannibalism caused below 5% losses. Overall mortality was 11.4 1.14% with a coefficient of variation of 108%, representing a relative percent mortality rate of 31.4 0.46, 25.5 0.53 and 43.2 0.49 during brooding, growing and laying periods, ...
During a nest-camera study of Hen Harriers (Circus cyaneus), we recorded siblicide, cannibalism, movement of nestlings by adult birds, and interactions with predators. We deployed cameras at 13 nests across three study areas in Ireland between 2008 and 2010. At a nest with two well-developed nestlings (approximately 25-30 d old), the older nestling killed its sibling and fed on it. This was the fi ...
Citation: Dennis, R.L., Fahey, A.G., Cheng, H. 2013. Alterations to embryonic serotonin change aggression and fearfulness. Aggressive Behavior. 39:91-98. Interpretive Summary: Cannibalism and injurious pecking are major concerns in the egg production industry. Currently, hens are often beak trimmed, removing 1/3 to 1/2 of the upper and lower mandibles using a hot blade, to prevent or reduce injury and mortality from these injurious behaviors. However, the beak trimming procedure may introduce a separate welfare issue, causing pain to the trimmed birds. One potential solution is to reduce the birds motivation to initiate injurious pecking. However, the mechanisms of these behaviors are not well understood. Serotonin is a primary neurotransmitter involved in regulating pecking behaviors. In the present study we investigate the long term effects of a single dose of serotonin or a pharmaceutical agent that stimulates a serotonin receptor involved in aggression (5-HT1A receptor agonist) delivered to ...
In fishes, the parents presence generally improves embryos survival through parental care, but it is also associated with some disadvantages such as clutch cannibalism and loss of male physical condition. Captive breeding of the river blenny Salaria fluviatilis might improve if these disadvantages were avoided by artificially replacing parental care benefits in the lab. Before accepting this procedure, it should be studied whether embryo development is dependent or not on any other unknown effect related to the parents presence. In this study, the ontogenetic sequence and several morphological structures - standard length, head height, jaw length and yolk-sac volume - from embryos reared both in the presence and in the absence of the parents were compared. At day 11 after oviposition, in the parents absence treatment, well-developed embryos were obtained, but a smaller size of the yolk-sac, a greater head height and a tendency to have a greater jaw length than in the parents presence ...
Last nights Season 5 premiere of The Walking Dead was another look at keeping your humanity in a lawless post-apocalyptic world. In it, were given the briefest glimpse of how Terminus became Terminus. A hippie utopia turned into a nightmare. From cannabis to cannibalism is two easy steps. Youre either the butchers or the cattle.
Unable to control the frequency of social contact, the rats became increasingly stressed. Males became aggressive and some formed gangs, attacking females and the young. Mothers neglected their infants, failing to construct proper nests and even abandoning or attacking their pups. One group of males isolated themselves from the community around them and became exclusively homosexual. Cannibalism began - first of the abandoned young, then of the victims of violence. Calhoun commented that the natural behaviours of his rats were so disrupted that the animals had stopped being rats. And the change was permanent. Even as an infant mortality rate as high as 96 per cent sent population numbers plummeting, the rodents had lost the ability to live harmoniously together. He called this phenomenon a behavioural sink. The macabre spectacle of crowded psychopathological rats and the easy comparisons with human life in the densely populated inner cities ensured that the experiments were quickly adopted ...

The cell envelope is an essential yet highly dynamic structure that protects the bacterial cell from its environment. Maintaining its integrity throughout the growth cycle - even in the face of antibiotic threat - is absolutely essential for survival. While significant progress has been made in recent years on understanding envelope homeostasis during balanced growth, little is known on the regulatory and physiological adjustments in stationary phase. The goal of the project is to study how bacteria maintain cell envelope homeostasis during the complex differentiation cascade of Bacillus subtilis during stationary phase. Within this differentiation process, a subpopulation of cells produces antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) that not only interfere with cell wall biosynthesis of competing species, but also target subpopulations of B. subtilis cells in a process termed cannibalism. Since many AMPs inhibit active cell wall biosynthesis, it seems likely that only a subpopulation of cells that are still ...
The Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is a recognized disorder by animal psychiatry and one of the most disabling. In animals OCD is divided into three categories, first is the conflict behaviour like (cannibalism, urine suction) followed by empty behaviours (for example licking, self mutilation) and stereotyped behaviours (licking nose and lips, yawning, circling, tail chasing, snapping at the air etc). Scientists have located chromosome 7 in dogs that confers a high risk of susceptibility to OCD ...
All of this just goes to show the bad faith that was behind McCains selection of Palin. He thought that a female candidate--any female--could help him get the disgruntled H. Clinton voters. He was so sure of this delusion that he neglected to vet Palin at all. Plucked from Alaskan obscurity, Palin used the spotlight to model new expensive clothes and carve out her own "rogue" niche within the McCain campaign. Sensing defeat and needing a scapegoat, McCain then allowed campaign insiders to snipe at Palin even before the election was over. Sensing the defeat and the long knives to come, Palin charged even more clothes to staffers credit cards, prepared her own speech for Nov. 4, and let be known that she would be back running for office in the future. The cannibalism that is currently besetting the failed campaign and the Republicans in general is all traceable to how unfit both McCain and Palin were for high office. I suspect that well see Palin again on the national scene, probably replacing ...
As I said in another thread .... Show me just one incident of real zombies. Zombies are about as fiction as santa or the tooth fairy. So many people obsessing over cases of cannibalism most of the time the person being accused of being a zombie are on a drug induced trip. So the logic of some people is that when an animal eats its own kind they would be zombies too? A few years ago there was an incident here in canada where some dude on a greyhound bus for no reason beheaded some one eating body parts. I dont think this was caused by radiation more of an mental illness Just like in most of these cases. Then again I guess people still need to believe in unicorns and elves leprechauns , and zombies. Just cause I saw Frodo Baggins on tv doesnt mean that hobbits exist ...
Otto confesses, "I wanted to consume the living, to devour human flesh but I couldnt bring myself to do it. At first I thought it might have something to do with the time before. When I was alive. It occurred to me I might have been a vegetarian. Or worse, a vegan. But that wasnt exactly it." Ottos zombie hungers are something he tries to repress, but both the hunger (via the zombie identity) and the desire to repress it refer to a back story that is inaccessible to him.. What undermines these scenes is that they are told unreliably from Ottos perspective. As the film unfolds, it becomes more and more apparent that carnage and disembowelment, cannibalism and death are metaphors for Otto, not reality based: he sees the world through zombie-coloured glasses. This is partly revealed via the fragmented structure of the film as it moves from Ottos first-person narrative to the filmmaker, Medeas first person narrative and her "real" engagements with Otto. Its in one of these "real time" ...

Dr. Gaines has synthesized a food additive which he has put into the turducken. He is trailing its effect at a Biggersons in New Jersey. It is very addictive, and consumption leads to weight gain, and dampens peoples emotional responses until they are very apathetic. After cooking, the tainted turducken will revert back to the grey goo state. However, in 0.03% of cases consumption results in "hyper-adrenalised cannibalism." Dick is not happy as the "failures" have made the papers as theyve killed locals and holiday makers. More importantly, Dick points out, theyve broken his golden rule - theres no such thing as monsters. As punishment he "bibs" Dr. Gaines - literally placing a plastic bib on him, and making him eat himself. ...
The anthropologist/author takes on some of the major food riddles, including cannibalism, to reveal why a culture accepts or spurns specific foods
There are many possible explanations for the blood libel. Although the time frames do not match, there has always been a cannibalism taboo within Christianity, and it is feasible that the blood libel is based upon a misunderstanding of Hebraic tradition involving blood. Simple racism may be the cause, as the Jews have been persecuted for many centuries and it is customary for those who persecute to ascribe false charges against whom they are persecuting. For centuries there has been stories of creatures that drain people of blood and life energy, vampires from distant lands, and it is also possible that superstitious fears of such creatures may also have been somehow applied to the Jews.. Professor Israel Jacob Yuval of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem argued that the blood libel myth may have originated in the twelfth century from Christian views of Jewish behavior during the First Crusade. Some Jews committed suicide and killed their own children in acts of martyrdom rather than be subjected ...
Charged with gross incompetence, Satan is fired from his job as Prince of Hell and exiled to that most terrible of places: English suburbia. Forced to live as a human under the name of Jeremy Clovenhoof, the dark lord not only has to contend with the fact that no one recognises him or gives him the credit he deserves but also has to put up with the bookish wargamer next door and the voracious man-eater upstairs. Heaven, Hell and the city of Birmingham collide in a story that features murder, heavy metal, cannibalism, armed robbers, devious old ladies, Satanists who live with their mums, gentlemen of limited stature, dead vicars, petty archangels, flamethrowers, sex dolls, a blood-soaked school assembly and way too much alcohol. Clovenhoof is outrageous and irreverent (and laugh out loud funny!) but it is also filled with huge warmth and humanity.

For instance, rabies is pretty scary on its own, said Kartik Chandran, a microbiologist and immunologist at the Albert Einstein College in New York who studies the deadly Ebola virus. (In the movie and book, the zombie plague is first misidentified as rabies.). Like the mythical zombie virus, rabies is transferred through biting. Once inside your body, the virus travels directly to your brain and makes you go nuts and go and bite more people, he said. More than 55,000 people, mostly in Africa and Asia, die from rabies every year, which is one person every ten minutes, according to the World Rabies Day website. Most infected people are bitten by rabid wildlife. (See New, Fast-Evolving Rabies Virus Found-And Spreading.)". There isnt a disease, be it mental or physiological, that makes people want to eat other people, at least none as currently recognized by medical science. (Cannibalism isnt considered a mental illness ...
Normally its the other way around. In his book Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed, Jared Diamond shows how ecological crisis is often the prelude to social catatrosphe. The obvious example is Easter Island, where society disintegrated soon after the population reached its highest historical numbers, the last trees were cut down and the construction of stone monuments peaked. The island chiefs had competed to erect ever bigger statues. These required wood and rope (made from bark) for transport, and extra food for the labourers. As the trees and soils on which the islanders depended disappeared, the population crashed and the survivors turned to cannibalism. Diamond wonders what the Easter islander who cut down the last palm tree might have thought. "Like modern loggers, did he shout Jobs, not trees!? Or: Technology will solve our problems, never fear, well find a substitute for wood.? Or: We dont have proof that there arent palms somewhere else on Easter ... your proposed ...

I suppose I could write something funny here, but Id rather ask you to look at the honest to God fear present in Kevin Mulhalls face as he essentially sticks his hands in a bear trap. Truly chilling stuff.) Here are a few news items that youll probably find even less surprising than the fact that the Summer 2012 injury curse has claimed yet another victim:. 1. Another Floridian came down with a bad case of bath salt-related cannibalism.. 2. A Greek triple-jumper was expelled from the Olympics for saying something racist over Twitter. (You may, however, be surprised to learn that it was a pretty hot woman who said it.) 3. Rotten Tomatoes recently had to shut down its comments section because a couple critics who gave The Dark Knight Rises a bad review were receiving so many death threats that it nearly crashed the server. Yes, death threats.. 4. A Georgia man recently set his head on fire as part of a bet he made while hammered at a bar and was hospitalized shortly thereafter. Unfortunately, ...
What really astonishes me is that people are actually freaking out over this. Or were, back when it was posted.. Its a cookie, folks. It doesnt really matter what it looks like. Were not squishing up aborted fetuses and making them into cake batter. Were taking innocuous cookie dough and making it into fun shapes specifically for the eating.. We make cookie bats, cats, reindeer, santas, snowmen, and even Jesusi. Why is it so completely awful to think about eating a cookie fetus when most folks see no problem biting the head right off a cookie Jesus or a cookie Santa?. How is eating a cookie grown-up less cannibalism then a cookie fetus? Really now.. ...
By Dr. Thomas R. Horn. Starting this week, SkyWatch TV begins a series of televised investigative interviews with Steve Quayle, myself, and our respective teams that will slowly uncover over the following weeks trailblazing research weve been secretly working on since 2016. You will be hearing a lot about this in major media this year. Besides giant interlopers who traversed the Atlantic Ocean and secret Anasazi routes to corrupt earliest Americans with portal-opening sorcery, human sacrifices, ritual cannibalism, and the technology of the fallen ones, fresh ground is finally broken into the so-called "Great Smithsonian Cover Up." For those who may not know what I mean by a Smithsonian Cover Up, lets start with what we all now know was a giant hoax.. On December 3, 2014, one of the World Wide Webs most popular and misleading articles of all time was published by World News Daily Report: "Smithsonian Admits to Destruction of Thousands of Giant Human Skeletons in Early 1900s."

The introduction, "The Alien Among Us", talks about ecology and pollution, and the possibility that some force is trying to kill off the human race.. "Murphys Hall" by Poul and Karen Anderson is one of the more experimental pieces, tying together several failed space missions and the miserable life of a boy left behind on Earth.

Cowboy Wash is a group of 9 archaeological sites used by Ancient Puebloans (the Anasazi) in Montezuma County, southwestern Colorado, United States. Each site includes one to three pit houses, and was discovered in 1993 during an archaeological dig. The remains of twelve humans were found at one of the pit house sites, dating to the 12th century. The site, designated 5MT10010, dates to between approximately 1150 and 1175 A.D. It is located on the south slopes of Ute Mountain near Towaoc, approximately 15 miles west of Mesa Verde, the famous Anasazi cliff dwellings. Some archeologists believe that the site was settled by immigrants from Chaco Canyon, or the Chuska Mountains. Five of the human skeletons at the site were from burials. The remaining seven exhibited many signs of cannibalism including defleshing, fragmentation of long bones to extract marrow, chopped, cut, and blackened bones. A stone tool kit appropriate for butchering a mid-sized mammal was found. The initial excavation was ...
You have to be kidding right? Unfortunately this is really happening!. The Next Magazine, a weekly publication from Hong Kong, reported that infant corpses and fetuses have become the newest supplements for health and beauty in China. Not only is the placenta considered a beauty remedy, but also aborted fetuses are much sought after delicacies. In Guangdong, gourmet body parts are in high demand and can even be purchased through hospitals. The magazines investigations into this form of cannibalism took them to Liaoning province.. According to The Next Magazine, during a banquet hosted by a Taiwanese businessman, a servant Ms Liu from Liaoning province on the mainland inadvertently revealed the habit of eating infants/fetuses in Liaoning province and her intention to return for the supplement due to health concerns. The Taiwanese women present were horrified.. Ms Liu also disclosed that even though people can afford the human parts there are still waiting lists and those with the right ...
The only reason anyone is remarking upon this story is because the two individuals were naked AND there was cannibalism AND it happened outdoors AND it happened in the daytime. Any two or three of those things happens down here all the time. We had serial killers coming out of the woodwork all the time down here BEFORE the US government decided that all of Haiti should be relocated to Florida. (Thank you Bill and Hillary - may you both burn in Hell for all Eternity for fucking over Florida like that.) Now that the Haitians are here spreading the voodoo and the zombie shit everything has gone all to Hell. It used to be we just had people committing crimes against humanity and serial killers, now its fucking Zombie World. ...

Eco-hysteria Yet it is precisely psycho-social manipulation and intimidation of the public that drives environmentalism today.

Folks, autism is not genetic. Neither is Alzheimers disease or Parkinsons. Autism comes on at an early age. The doctors all know this. Sometimes it gets really bad, and other times it lessens, and even disappears gradually over years and years. Dementia is caused by plaques forming in the brain and a lack of blood flow and oxygen to the brain, again, over years and years (think canola oil and animal fat here).. Now guess what they put in the small pox vaccine, the rabies vaccine, and the MMR? Human cells from abortions. This is not a joke or a hoax. Its vaccine cannibalism. Its medical terrorism. Its chemical violence. Its child abuse falsely labeled as "immune-boosting" medicine. Thats why those vaccines are MORE dangerous than just catching the wild forms of the diseases. Got mad cow disease, or mad human disease? No wonder the Amish children never get autism, they dont get the vaccines that cause it.. Shall we now talk about parents unknowingly letting doctors and nurses inject ...
Brotha Lynch Hung is one of most influential emcees from the West Coast that youve probably never heard of. Considered a pioneer in the gore subgenre of Hip Hop, Brotha Lynchs lyrical exploits have influenced everyone from Snoop Dogg to the Gravediggaz. Inarguably, Lynchs influence has fallen on the ears of independent powerhouse, Tech N9ne, whose rapid-fire delivery and macabre lyrics bear a striking similarity. Therefore, it was not a surprise when Tech signed Brotha Lynch to his Strange Music label last year. With a discography that nearly spans twenty albums, Hung returns for the aptly titled Dinner and a Movie, in which he glosses over his typical routine of murder, torture, and yes, cannibalism, except this time with more refined production than ever.. "I dont have to kill anyone, I just think it. Its all up here; believe me if I started killing anyone there would be none of you left," utters Hung on the albums intro before describing horrific torture on "Colostomy Bag" ("I put tools ...
Here are some of the latest health and medical news developments, compiled by the editors of HealthDay:. Cannibalized Human Body Would Provide 125,000 Calories: Study. You would get more than 125,000 calories from eating a whole human body, and a large amount of that would come from the thighs, calves and upper arms, a researcher says.. James Cole is an archeologist at the University of Brighton, England who was studying "nutritional human cannibalism" during the Paleolithic period, which lasted from about 2.5 million years ago to 10,000 years ago, The New York Times reported.. "I was interested in how nutritious are we actually?" he explained. "Whenever I talk about the topic, I always get a slight sort of side view from my colleagues.". Along with determining an overall calorie count for the human body, Cole also calculated the calories of specific parts: thighs,13,350 calories; calves, 4,490 calories; upper arms, 7,450 calorie; forearms,1,660 calories; heart, 650 calories; lungs, 1,600 ...

Horsefly is the common name for many of the stout flies in the family Tabanidae. The bite of adult female horseflies is an annoyance to humans, but an even greater menace to livestock. Adult males survive solely on pollen and nectar, but the larvae of the species are fierce predators that sometimes display cannibalistic behavior.

Thread- and cable-like objects are ubiquitous in our daily environment, and usually fastened to structures and buildings by cumbersome mechanical attachment devices like hooks, clamps, knots and screws. To find better attachment solutions for technological applications, animal models may reveal novel mechanisms of how to attach material to substrates. For example, orb-web spiders are both climbers and architects using silk cables with fascinating elegance and efficiency. A crucial part of both abseiling and web building is the attachment of the main silk thread (the dragline) to substrates, which is performed with remarkable speed and without any pre-preparation or penetration of the substrate. For substrate attachment spiders use numerous short glue-coated nanofibres drawn from the piriform glands [1,2]. Both the dragline-producing major ampullate gland and the piriform gland ducts lead to nozzle-like openings, the spigots, located on the paired anterior lateral spinnerets. In order to attach ...
Although prion diseases, such as Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) in humans and scrapie in sheep, have long been recognized, our understanding of their epidemiology and pathogenesis is still in its early stages. Progress is hampered by the lengthy incubation periods and the lack of effective ways of monitoring and characterizing these agents. Protease-resistant conformers of the prion protein (PrP), known as the "scrapie form" (PrPSc), are used as disease markers, and for taxonomic purposes, in correlation with clinical, pathological, and genetic data. In humans, prion diseases can arise sporadically (sCJD) or genetically (gCJD and others), caused by mutations in the PrP-gene (PRNP), or as a foodborne infection, with the agent of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) causing variant CJD (vCJD). Person-to-person spread of human prion disease has only been known to occur following cannibalism (kuru disease in Papua New Guinea) or through medical or surgical treatment (iatrogenic CJD, iCJD).

Kuru belongs to a class of diseases called transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs), also called prion diseases. It primarily affects the cerebellum - the part of your brain responsible for coordination and balance. Unlike most infections or infectious agents, kuru is not caused by a bacteria, virus, or fungus. Infectious, abnormal proteins known as prions cause kuru. Prions are not living organisms and do not reproduce. They are inanimate, misshapen proteins that multiply in the brain and form clumps, hindering normal brain processes.. Creutzfeldt-Jakob, Gerstmann-Sträussler-Scheinker disease, and fatal familial insomnia are other degenerative diseases caused by prions. These spongiform diseases, as well as kuru, create sponge-like holes in your brain and are fatal. You can contract the disease by eating an infected brain or coming into contact with open wounds or sores of someone infected with it. Kuru developed primarily in the Fore people of New Guinea when they ate the brains of ...
Turkey Table of Contents The tiny Armenian minority, estimated at 40,000 in 1995, also is a remnant of a once-larger community. Before World War I, some 1.5 million Armenians lived in eastern Anatolia. Starting in the late nineteenth century, intergroup tensions prompted the emigration of possibly as many as 100,000 Armenians in the 1890s. In 1915 the Ottoman government ordered all Armenians deported from eastern Anatolia; at least 600,000 of the Armenians, who numbered up to 2 million, died during a forced march southward during the winter of 1915-16. Armenians believe--and Turks deny--that the catastrophe that befell their community was the result of atrocities committed by Turkish soldiers following government directives. Armenians outside Turkey refer to the deaths of 1915-16 as an instance of genocide, and over the years various Armenian political groups have sought to avenge the tragedy by carrying out terrorist attacks against Turkish diplomats and officials abroad (see Armenian ...
