AUSA FIELD TRIP!

Hi all,

I have officially locked down tickets to the Margaret Mead Film Festival at the American Museum of Natural History. I got us tickets to the opening night screening of Freedom Fields (their opening film tends to be one of their biggest, and most anticipated features, so I thought that would be a good fit!) The show is at 7:00 on Thursday night (October 18)

HOWEVER, I only have a limited number of tickets and will not be able to bring everyone. If you are interested, please please please let me know as soon as possible!!!

Shoot me an email at [email protected] to secure a ticket!

Hope to see you there,
Emma

New moms need social support, and mother chimpanzees are no exception. So much so that female chimps that lack supportive friends and family wait longer to start having babies, according to researchers who have combed through the records of Jane Goodall’s famous Gombe chimpanzees. This research was conducted with support from The Leakey Foundation.

"When we start thinking of language more in terms of style than vocabulary or spelling, a different picture emerges. Some of the bigger trends in American English are moving towards a more compact and informal use of language. American sentences are on average one word shorter in 2006 than they were in 1931."

▫Discovered recently in 1994, this cave has many scenes of prehistoric life both painted and etched onto the cave walls. In the same year as discovery, the cave was sealed off to any but the lucky few scientists who have ever been inside. The charcoal art had been dated to between 32,000 - 30,000 years old and depicts wildlife of the time in mesmerizing detail.
▫What we see here are carefully and accurately created life-size replicas of the art in a purpose built structure very near the actual cave. We see the Horses lined up, fighting Rhinos, a bear, Reindeer and various other animals in vivid and dramatic detail.
