Crow about the success of bird brains.

How can we design experiments to test just how bright animals can be in relation to their own environment and even our own when we consider species that have associated with us and our strange contraptions throughout our short history of technology. The results of investigations tell us something much more than just how cognitive some species are compared to others. This great yet simple work tells us how the ecosystem works in real time.

There is only one animal that has occupied every habitat on land, using simple technologies that have been beyond other species. Here is the first sign of an almost complete history of how the continents were conquered. Unfortunately, it was not only the plants and animals that were dominated, but the ethnic cleansing of other humans that is portrayed in vivid DNA memories.

How can we replace the beautiful Panamanian golden frog. Well, we can breed them in zoos or laboratories. Or go out and find a new golden species to conserve. Take your pick.

We have a record for being obsessed with camouflage in the sea or on land. The incredible lengths that species will go to (evolve) in order to resemble an object that is either dangerous or inedible. The name is mimicry (Batesian or otherwise) and the game here is masquerade.

Teaching is the Oldest Profession.

Teaching is the Oldest Profession.

How do we evaluate modern humans in their approach to high fidelity learning. We are barely adequate in evaluating teaching, so maybe it is about time we looked more closely at how children really learn. The so-called professionals, from areas that are barely concerned, have failed to agree for generations, even on defining true teaching, instruction, coaching or mentoring properly. That leaves the field wide open for novel or ingenuous suggestions about early (or even late) learning and the teaching that successfully provides it.
