Why Bonobos Make Bad Role Models

Even though sexual utopians can no longer boast about Bonobo nonviolence, they often maintain that Bonobo promiscuity would be suitable for humans-presumably because we share a lot of genes and even some behaviors.



However, the sexual utopians are forgetting one thing. Bonobos don't have "pair-bonder brains." We do.



Bonobo chimps appear to be our closest living relatives. Zoologists once characterized them as the "make love, not war" hippies of the chimpanzee species,… Continue

Dense? Yeah, maybe...

One of the folks posting on the Tidings online forum after this week's column called me 'dense.' You know, it just could be. I've read a lot of online responses to the question that I've asked for two straight columns now: What is it about the human body… Continue

There has to be something I'm not getting here...

I gave this week's column the title "Still Clueless After All these Years," knowing that I was lobbing a fat slow one over the middle of the plate for readers less than thrilled about my take on life. Sure enough, here was one of the online comments: "I must say… Continue

Looking for stories

I am embarking on writing a book. If you have had a custom home built or gone through an extensive remodel, I would like to interview you about the experience.
If you are a custom builder, I would like to interview you about your experience of being in the custom building field.
Of course, all will be held in the strictest confidence. If your story is used, no names will be used.

Thanks so much.

A big sucking sound...



If you read this space much you've probably picked up on how much I like the move towards local economies. It's the lynchpin to stepping through the chaos of coming months and years to a world that offer our kids and theirs a chance (who knows how big) at decent lives. So why is it that every month I'm shipping $30-50 that could stay in my community to Chase Bank?… Continue

All About All About Me



No, actually it's All About Me. Or at least it's ridiculously easy to think so. I caught myself cold doing that the other night, and wrote about what it did to my evening... an evening I'll never get back… Continue

Evidence | Facts – Climate Change: Vital Signs of the Planet | NASA

The Earth's climate has changed throughout history. Just in the last 650,000 years there have been seven cycles of glacial advance and retreat, with the abrupt end of the last ice age about 7,000 years ago marking the beginning of the modern climate era — and of human civilization. Most of these climate changes are attributed to very small variations in Earth’s orbit that change the amount of solar energy our planet receives.

Father-Son Duo Helped Create 51,000 New Beehive Colonies Across The Globe| Intelligent Living

The bee population is shrinking. But this duo is saving them. Stuart and Cedar Anderson spent a whole ten years trying to figure out how to harvest honey without disturbing bees. Their solution was an Indiegogo-funded invention called Flow Hive that replicates a real beehive without putting the bees at risk when you harvest honey. The Flow Hive allows the honey to flow out of the hive straight into a jar without crushing or disrupting the bees inside. What a brilliant design!
