g Abodes - Scientists who mapped one of the most enigmatic mountain ranges on Earth have given a first glimpse of their data. See article.
g Intelligence - One group of birds - the corvids - has astonished scientists with extraordinary feats of memory, an ability to employ complex social reasoning and, perhaps most strikingly, a remarkable aptitude for crafting and using tools. See article.
g Aftermath - Quote of the Day: "He, who through vast immensity can pierce,/See worlds on worlds compose one universe,/Observe how system into system runs,/What other planets circle other suns,/What varied Being peoples every star,/May tell why Heaven has made us as we are." — Alexander Pope
