Despite the many ecological similarities between tool-use in dolphins and sea otters, we found that the genetic patterns in these two species are different. In otters, diet types and tool-use are dispersed across both common mitogenome haplotypes and neither otters that specialize on snails (the diet type that contains most of the frequent tool-users) nor frequent tool-users are more related to each other than to the population as a whole. By contrast, tool-use in the dolphins and its associated diet type (small cryptic fish) are predominantly confined to a single mitochondrial matriline in each of the two geographical areas in which it occurs and individuals that use tools are more related to each other than expected (however, relatedness was not statistically significant for the western gulf of Shark Bay) [12,13,19].. The lack of genetic association with tool-use in sea otters, compared with dolphins, may result from the length of time each species has been using tools. Tool-use in dolphins is ...
A landscape rake is a hard-tined metal rake that either can be a hand rake or can be attached to a garden tractor. Garden rakes can range from a few tines to wide rakes with closely spaced tines. Unlike a leaf rake, landscape rakes have very little give as you work them through the soil. Landscape rakes are sometimes ...
Our thesis in this paper is that, in order to appreciate the interplay between cognitive (goal-directed) and physical performance in tool use, it is necessary to determine the role that representations play in the use of tools. We argue that rather being solely a matter of internal (mental) representation, tool use makes use of the external representations that define the human-environment-tool-object system. This requires the notion of Distributed Cognition to encompass not simply the manner in which artefacts represent concepts but also how they represent praxis. Our argument is that this can be extended to include how artefacts-in-context afford use and how this response to affordances constitutes a particular form of skilled performance. By artefacts-in-context, we do not mean solely the affordances offered by the physical dimensions of a tool but also the interaction between the tool and the object that it is being used on. From this, affordance does not simply relate to the physical
Another member of the primate family thats smart is the orangutan. Like the chimp, they can use tools, and they can learn how to use tools, such as the way to saw wood. Theyre able to communicate in sign language, and they pass knowledge down to their offspring quickly.. Is this any wonder, however? Orangutans share over 90% of our - human - genetic material. Scientists say that the patient nature of the orangutan - unlike that of their cousin, the ape - lets them have incredible problem solving abilities. One research group at Camp Leakey even observed the animals displaying self-grooming skills similar to humans with actions like washing with soap, washing clothes, bathing, and even brushing their teeth, all through just watching and observing. Its more than just mimicry, its actually applying a skill learned that observation, and thats the reason that we still have way more to study about primate behavior and intelligence.. ...

The question of animal culture has been the subject of extensive debate, with views ranging from general scepticism of its existence to arguments for a pervasive biological system that allows transmission of information across generations. The aim of this symposium will be to explore various aspects of social and cultural learning across taxa, from invertebrates to birds, cetaceans and primates, and give an overview of techniques and methods to assess social learning directly in wild populations. Over the last decades, exciting new developments in field methodologies have the identification and study of animal cultures directly in natural habitats. These field methods, including social network analyses, ethnographic methods, and cultural diffusion experiments have strengthened the case for social learning and cultural behaviour in non-human animals, and have elucidated its role in evolutionary and behavioural ecology. The invited speakers will be requested to use specific examples of field ...

The brain maintains a physical map of the body, with different areas in charge of different body parts. Researchers have suggested that when we use tools, our brains incorporate them into this map.. To test the idea, Alessandro Farné of the University of Claude Bernard in Lyon, France, and colleagues attached a mechanical grabber to the arms of 14 volunteers. The modified subjects then used the grabber to pick up out-of-reach objects.. Shortly afterwards, the volunteers perceived touches on their elbow and fingertip as further apart than they really were, and took longer to point to or grasp objects with their hand than prior to using the tool.. The explanation, say the team, is that their brains had adjusted the brain areas that normally control the arm to account for the tool and not yet adjusted back to normal.. "This is the first evidence that tool use alters the body [map]," says Farné.. Farné says the same kind of brain "plasticity" might be involved in regaining control of a ...

Describe how organisms meet some of their needs in an environment by using behaviors (patterns of activities) in response to information (stimuli) received from the environment. Recognize that some animal behaviors are instinctive (e.g., turtles burying their eggs), and others are learned (e.g., humans building fires for warmth, chimpanzees learning how to use tools ...
The classic way by which steroid hormones program the target cells for complex functions involves genomic signaling mechanisms and provide cells with the tools to accomplish their tasks. These mechanisms require a relatively long time to get into action and could determine the medium-term and long-term fate of the cell (2). In contrast, non-genomic signaling may represent a mechanism through which steroid receptors rapidly activate the cellular functions needed for adaptation to dynamic changes in the surrounding milieu. These mechanisms would rapidly enable the cell to use tools that are already present and become functionally activated or repressed at an extremely short time period. Therefore, understanding in depth the molecular mechanisms through which these actions are exerted represents an important frontier to engineer new and more selective pharmacologic tools for endocrine therapies (1). Nevertheless, until recently, no data existed about long-term effects via activation of membrane ...
Fun videos Gary. Got a kick out of Kits comment about Roy Underhill. Hes right , you got that down pat.. As for the Dr. bag , very nice, but way too expensive. No matter, one bag simply cant do it all. I use tool rolls & small organizers & keep them mostly in a good size soft sided tool "box" & a very nice Bucket Boss 30″ +/- long big mouth satchel. Thats my system for less than $ 100.00 (not factoring the cost of tool rolls & little organizers).. Like the idea of the systainer med kit. I have an extra dominoe box that will do the job nicely. Wonder though if the latches are of a special design on the Festool Med Kit. Trying to open a systainer with a bleeding hand would be a real challenge if not a down right disaster. Thinking that Ill need to modify the latches for this use. As always, thanks so much for TiC.. ...
SonicPics is a very easy to use tool for turning your images into custom slideshow movies that you can share with your friends online! SonicPics lets you add images from your iPhones photo library or camera, arrange your photos, and then narrate the project to create an enhanced m4v video (complete with chapters).

This looks like a really cool tool for creating visual stories -- especially for Mac users. Im a PC gal right now but it says I can load images from my camera to the site (and I do have an iTouch). Then I get to add my narration, and then post to my YouTube channel. Sweet! So maybe even I can use this service. Ill try it out.

In the meantime, those of us wanting to leverage the wave of visual storytelling have another great tool to investigate that can help us share our stories digitally -- easily and inexpensively. Yeah!

Thank you fellow curator Baiba for finding this! | Just Story It

INTRODUCTION: Professionalism describes the skills, competency, attributes, and behavior of an individual belonging to a profession. The physiotherapy graduate on completion of internship has direct access with the community as a professional. Hence, there is a need to explicitly teach and assess professionalism. The purpose of this study was to prepare a module to enhance professionalism and use tools to assess the professional attributes uniformly. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A module was formulated with the help of experts, literature review, and guidelines of various physiotherapy regulatory bodies nationally and internationally. Focused group discussions were used as a method to identify competencies. After designing the module, a prospective intervention trial was conducted wherein 40 students who joined the internship program of a tertiary care hospital of India, were enrolled for the study. A participatory approach was used which included an interactive workshop on "ethics in clinical ...
Will Richardson makes the analogy that students and teachers methods of communication used to run parallel, but now our students are veering off of that path and are showing no signs of coming back. So as teachers we need to follow them and use tools in our classroom that truly engages them and emphasizes the journey from A to B. We should be seeing more use of video production, podcasts, blogs, and chat rooms to connect our students to a real audience. Nothing is more engaging than having an expert at the CDC discuss a book about viruses, or the author of a book responding to a blog posting that a student wrote about that book. We as teachers are no longer the experts, but we have the power through technology to engage the students in collaborative activities and connect them to the real world ...

We are very happy with our nanoIR. Its breakthrough and unprecedented nanoscale chemical composition information has opened up tremendous insights for us into our nanotoxicity research. It is a very easy to use tool that a new user can be trained up in a day or two. Besides the nanoscale chemistry information, it also provides nanoscale mechanics via Lorentz Contact Resonance and the nanoTA-2 for nanoscale thermal analysis, both of which are very useful for our research. Additionally, the nanoIR has a very easy to use AFM which I find my students tend to prefer over AFMs from other major AFM manufacturers, even for AFM performance. Hence I have no doubt that the nanoIR from Anasys will enjoy widespread adoption in the Field of Pharmaceutical Science and other Academic/Industrial research areas since they have packaged a breakthrough scientific advance into an easy to use platform while adding in other powerful and complementary techniques. Importantly, technical support offered by Anasys is ...

His Rake can hit before my Mangle for 30% less dmg on the first tick, but the 30% lost on the first tick on rake is less than 20% lost on my shred if he were to use FF first instead of Rake and i were faster than him, meaning my shred could hit without there being a bleed already on the target. The other feral also pools up some energy after his Rake when he is using FF afterwards, he cant pool energy if hes using FF first as he is then already full energy. Also other Pros and Cons either way makes me believe that the sequences above is optimal for this 2feral setup. Another reason he is applying mangle and not me is because i need to pick up more talents than him due to 4set and being dps most of the time but still having tank talents, so he got more talents to spare for Feral Aggression since his time as dps only revolves around the 20sec burn, and not the rest of the fight where we also need to have high dps ...
