Monkeys used stone tools 700 years ago

Primate archaeology is a new and unusual-sounding field, but it has revealed ancient evidence of some clever and dextrous monkey culture.
Researchers from Oxford University, working in Brazil, found ancient “nut-cracking tools” – 700-year-old stone hammers that capuchin monkeys used to open cashew nuts.
One of the researchers, Dr Lydia Luncz, explains how the team found evidence of these “Stone Age monkeys”.

Venus the Two-Faced Cat a Mystery

he three-year-old tortoiseshell has her own Facebook page and a YouTube video that’s been viewed over a million times, and appeared on the Today Show last week. (Watch National Geographic cat videos.)

One look at this cat and you can understand why: One half is solid black with a green eye—the other half has typical orange tabby stripes and a blue eye.

How does a cat end up looking like that? Leslie Lyons, a professor at the University of California, Davis, who studies the genetics of domestic cats said she’s never seen a cat exactly like Venus.

“She is extremely, extremely rare,” Lyons said. “But you can explain it and you can understand it.”

Is Venus a Chimera?

Many reports about Venus refer to the cat as a “chimera.” In mythology, a chimera is a mishmash monster made up of parts of different animals. A feline chimera is a cat whose cells contain two types of DNA, caused when two embryos fuse together.

Among cats, “chimeras are really not all that rare,” Lyons said. In fact, most male tortoiseshell cats are chimeras. The distinctively mottled orange and black coat is a sign that the cat has an extra X chromosome.

But female cats, said Lyons, already have two X chromosomes so they can sport that coat without the extra X. That means Venus is not necessarily a chimera.

To find out would require genetic testing, said Lyons. With samples of skin from each side of the cat, “we can do a DNA fingerprint—just like on CSI—and the DNA from one side of the body should be different than the other.”

Cat’s Blue Eye Another Mystery

If Venus isn’t actually a chimera, then what would explain her amazing face?

“Absolute luck,” Lyons said. One theory: perhaps the black coloration was randomly activated in all the cells on one side of her face, while the orange coloration was activated on the other, and the two patches met at the midline of her body as she developed.

Cat fanciers who are transfixed by Venus’s split face may be missing the real story: her single blue eye. Cat eyes are typically green or yellow, not blue. (Take a cat quiz.)

A blue-eyed cat is typically a Siamese or else a cat with “a lot of white on them,” she explained.

Venus appears to have only a white patch on her chest, which to Lyons is not enough to explain the blue eye.

“She is a bit of a mystery.”

Glass Harp Duo – TV Show

GlassDuo was founded by Anna and Arkadiusz Szafraniec from Poland.

Some time ago, being charmed with the sound of musical glasses, they abandoned their places in the symphony orchestra in Gdansk and started to realize their own idea of performing.

Today they play the glass harp in duo and with other musicians as well. They’ve successfully performed with string quartets and various chamber ensembles.

GlassDuo have worked together with the majority of Polish orchestras including The Warsaw National Philharmonic Orchestra and Sinfonia Varsovia as well as with orchestras from outside Poland.

They are the only glass music group in Poland, one of a very few professional ensembles in the world.

GlassDuo’s instrument is the biggest professional glass harp in the world. Its range covers 5 octaves. Goblets are professionally tuned and ready to play without any water inside.

Musicians had several world premieres of musical works composed especially for them. The result are pieces composed by Zbigniew Preisner, Mieczysław Litwiński, Garry Eister, Zbigniew Pniewski, Piotr Salaber, Tom Smail, Anna Pęcherzewska, Aleksander Przeradowski, Jean Chatillon and Daniele Furlati.

GlassDuo made numerous recordings for radio and TV cooperated with, amongst others: Arte TV, Discovery Chanel, BBC, TVN, TVP1, TVP2, TVP Gdańsk, TVP Polonia, Polsat, PR1, ANTENA 3, Deutsche Welle, Public Radio International, Reuters, LRytas TV and Associated Press.

‘Glassy’ music also inspires artists from the realm of theatre. To date, music recorded by GlassDuo has appeared in: A. Mickiewicz “Forefathers’ Eve” (music by Monika Zytke, New Theatre, Słupsk, 2007), W. Gombrowicz “The Marriage” (arrangements by GlassDuo, Stefan Jaracz Theatre, Łódź, 2007), M. Sałtykow-Szczedrin “Judas”, based on the story “Mr. & Mrs. Gołowlew” (music by Piotr Salaber, Ateneum Theatre, Warsaw, 2010).

Eye Tracking on an F1 car

Eye Tracking on an F1 car

If you’ve ever wondered what a Formula One driver looks at while they’re racing, wonder no more. Using special eye-tracking goggles, Sahara Force India and Nico Hulkenberg have created a video that shows exactly where this particular F1 driver trains his eyes while going around a track.

As it turns out, Formula One drivers are a bit more capable than the average Joe when it comes to reaction times and the ability to take in and comprehend information. Going into corners, Hulkenberg is zeroed in on the apex, trying to clip the curb at just the right point. He reacts to the changing of the lights at a speed so fast, the same time would suggest a false start by a runner in a sprint.

The eye-tracking technology shows that the human eye tends to dart around quite a bit, too. It doesn’t stay focused on any one thing for too long, and our peripheral vision fills in most of what we don’t look directly at.

Take it all in and use it to improve your skills during your next autocross outing or track day.

Pyongyang Street Food – North Korea

This footage recorded in the secretive world of North Korea by a man and his wife offers a rare glimpse into the Hermit Kingdom’s culture – specifically its street food.

Jaka Parker set out to buy food from street stalls in Pyongyang, capital of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un’s nation.

But what the film also reveals is the strange atmosphere and barren roads.

As the footage shows, Jaka can be seen approaching the first stall to buy some sushi-like roll of rice wrapped in what looks like seaweed.

Kokino – Ancient Aliens

Kokino is a Bronze Age archaeological site in the Republic of Macedonia, approximately 30 km from the town of Kumanovo, and about 6 km from the Serbian border, in the Staro Nagoričane municipality. It is situated between about 1010 and 1030 m above sea level on the Tatićev Kamen summit and covers an area of about 90 by 50 meters, overlooking the eponymous hamlet of Kokino.

It was discovered by archeologist Jovica Stankovski, director of the national museum in Kumanovo, in 2001. In 2002, Stankovski together with Gorje Cenev (who is the head of a planetarium at a Youth Cultural Center in Skopje) published the claim that the site contains a “megalithic observatory and sacred site”.

The oldest archaeological finds date from about the 19th century BC, corresponding to the early European Bronze Age. It shows signs of occupation for the period from the 19th to the 7th centuries BC. Finds from the Middle Bronze Age (c. 16th to 14th centuries BC) are the most numerous (mainly ceramic vessels, stone-mills and a few molds). An agglomeration from the Iron Age was discovered in 2009.

The Kokino “megalithic observatory” should be distinguished from the wider Kokino archaeological site. While the observatory consists of two platforms of a combined area of about 5000 square meters, the site covers about 30 hectares. From this area, an abundant amount of fragments of ceramic vessels, dated to between the 19th and the 11th centuries BC. Also found was a mould for casting bronze axes, and a pendant. The remains of vessels filled with offerings were found deposited in cracks in the rocks, which gave rise to the interpretation of the site as a “holy mountain”.

The claimed archaeo-astronomical site itself consists of two platforms with an elevation difference of 19 m. The claim of the site representing an astronomical observatory was made by Stankovski and by Gjore Cenev in 2002. According to this interpretation, the site includes special stone markers used to track the movement of the Sun and Moon on the eastern horizon. The observatory used the method of stationary observation, marking positions of the Sun at the winter and summer solstice, as well as the equinox. Four stone seats or “thrones” are placed in a row on the lower platform. According to Cenev, A stone block with a marking on the upper platform marks the direction of sunrise on summer solstice when viewed from one of the seats.

Kokino was mentioned in a poster made by NASA’s “Sun-Earth Connection Education Forum” in 2005.

The Cultural Heritage Protection Office of Macedonia’s Ministry of Culture declared the site a “property under temporary protection” on 13 November 2008 (Decision nr. 08-1935/6). In 2009, Minister of Culture Elizabeta Kancheska-Milevska declared Kokino “one of the priorities of the Ministry of Culture’s 2009 programme”. In 2009, the Republic of Macedonia also suggested the site be inscribed on the World Heritage Site list.
