Awe, little creepy stalker trolls, did you know you could now stalk people on facebook too talking about BIRDS. hahaha

Scientists map 'Facebook for birds'

A male great tit takes wing: Scientists find that the birds develop tight social connections.

The social network isn't limited to humans: Researchers at Oxford University have organized millions of observations of birds known as great tits into a "Facebook for animals" — and have found that the birds, like us, tend to form tight-knit circles of friends.

After you've finished tittering over the name of the bird species — which is also known by its scientific name, Parus major — you might appreciate the other similarities between Facebook affiliations and the birds' real-world interactions. For example, the strongest social connections link the birds with their mating partners or mates-to-be. As is the case with Facebook check-ins, geographical proximity increases the likelihood of social interaction. And there are ample examples of "friend of a friend" interrelationships.

It's not as if the animal world has suddenly logged onto social media. Rather, the study demonstrates that social media such as Facebook reflect the characteristics found in the social networks that are formed naturally by humans, birds and other species.

"From a purely engineering perspective, I would say there are similarities" between Facebook and the great-tit network, Oxford's Ioannis Psorakis, the lead author of a study published in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface, told me today.

The study builds upon data collected between 2007 and 2009, showing how birds of a feather flocked together at 67 bird feeders spread throughout Wytham Woods near Oxford. Thousands of birds were outfitted with radio transponders, and millions of readings were registered from the more than 700 birds that frequented the feeders. Those readings were organized into network maps, which were compared with on-the-ground observations of feeding and mating activity.

This network map charts the Wytham Woods great-tit social network on Sept. 9, 2007. Not all 770 birds of the 2007-2008 season were recorded during that day, and individuals with no connections have been removed from the network.

"If you think of the data about you in Facebook, it records things like who you are friends with, where you've been, and what you share with others," Psorakis said in an Oxford news release. "What we have shown is that we can analyze data about individual animals, in this case, great tits, to construct a 'Facebook for animals' revealing who affiliates with who, who are members of the same group, and which birds are regularly going to the same gatherings or 'events.'"

The researchers found that mating partners consistently belonged to the same social circles, and if two birds became mates during the time that they were being observed, that love connection was "characterized by a rapid development of network proximity." When the researchers looked beyond the birds' mating relationships, the network maps showed a number of tightly connected communities, analogous to networks of friends or family.

Psorakis emphasized that the 2007-2009 research was aimed primarily at creating the initial network maps for the great tits of Wytham Woods. "We are not yet at the prediction stage," he told me. But readings are continuing to stream in. "We are collecting hundreds of thousands of observations a day," Psorakis said.

Eventually, the data may reveal the genetic and environmental factors that promote or discourage social connections between the birds. The technique could also be applied to other species, to see how different animals form different types of networks. Psorakis noted that scientists have already studied the social networks formed by bottlenose dolphins as well as fish and killer whales.

Continued:

The lessons learned from great tits may someday be applied to human relationships as well. "If we could go fast-forward 100 years from now, you could look at an individual's [Facebook] timeline and infer how, at certain points in his life, certain connections were formed," Psorakis said.

Let your imagination flow, particularly when thinking about how to advance your career or make progress with long-term goals. However, you have to tread a fine line between rising to challenges and knowing your own limitations. Strange as it may seem, daydreaming could be very productive now so take note of the ideas that come to you when your mind wanders.Obama planned to deliver a speech on his economic policy Thursday in the critical battleground of Ohio. Officials have made clear that he won't unveil any major new proposals — and Democrats are increasingly grumbling that Republicans in Congress won't sign on to any White House proposals for tackling 8.2 percent unemployment before the election."The president will outline the choice in this election: between a vision for moving our country forward, ensuring that our economy is built to last and restoring economic security for the middle class, and Mitt Romney's vision, based on the same failed economic policies that brought on the worst crisis since the Great Depression," said the Obama campaign in a preview of the remarks, to be delivered at Cuyahoga Community College Metropolitan Campus in Cleveland. Some early versions of the Apple Smart Cover, and some third-party smart covers, had a magnet problem when applied to the new iPad; Apple had reversed the polarity of the magnets, meaning the new iPad didn't wake up when the cover was pulled back.

Lawyers for Wal-Mart Stores Inc have flagged Brazil, China, India and South Africa in addition to Mexico, as countries that represent the highest corruption risk in a global review, according to a letter from lawmakers investigating the company.

The lawyers said they first reviewed Wal-Mart policies in Mexico, Brazil and China, and later recommended the company also evaluate its operations in India and South Africa. The lawyers referred to those five countries as regions where the risk was the greatest, according to the lawmakers.

The company has acknowledged it is investigating bribery allegations involving its Mexican operations, and that it initiated a world-wide review of its anti-corruption compliance program in March 2011, but has not provided details about the review.

Meet the 'wolf whisperer'

Discovering the Call of the Wild in Albuquerque
Albuquerque

"My whole background is living off the land, giving thanks, not abusing."

Stephanie Kaylan's original awestruck impression of Albuquerque has never wavered. After the long drive from her former home of Los Angeles, she spied the Duke City from the freeway. "The first words out of my mouth were,'Ah, it's a jewel box.' How beautiful everything was, and how clean, and no traffic and air pollution!"

Since settling in Albuquerque's East Mountains ("And I ain't moving!"), Kaylan founded Wanagi Wolf Fund and Rescue, a nonprofit teaching foundation dedicated to the rescue of wolves and wolf dogs, and to stopping their breeding as pets. Dubbed the wolf whisperer, Kaylan takes her rescued animals into schools and to meet-and-greets at the Open Space Visitor Center, a wildlife preserve and working farm she considers the best-kept secret in Albuquerque. The center's events and classes are geared toward everyone — from kids to seniors, from yoga practitioners to bird watchers, and, of course, to those with a jones for a wolf encounter. "Their eyes light up," says Kaylan, adding that people often say they've waited their whole life to meet a wolf, and are amazed at how friendly they are.

Of Scottish and Seneca Indian descent, she isn't the first groundbreaker in her family — her grandmother opened a health food store in New York City in 1939. But starting Wanagi Wolf Fund and Rescue only made sense for Kaylan, given that she's always bonded with animals. "When I was little," she says, "I'd listen to dogs barking, and say to my family,'That dog is lonely,' and they'd say,'How do you know?' And I'd say,'Because he told me.' I was just an animal person. We're all given a gift, and hopefully in your lifetime you'll know what it is." Now she's learned to recognize the distinct howls of her wolves, including the one that signals the passing of a UPS truck!

Previously a professional jazz pianist and studio musician in L.A., Kaylan finds plenty of options in Albuquerque to get her music fix, including performers who might previously have played the Hollywood Bowl. She watches big-name touring concerts at the Sandia Resort and Casino outdoor amphitheater, but also appreciates the intimate setting of Outpost Performance Space. "You can see the sweat on their brow, like it's in your own home," she says. Kaylan also loves the range and quality of productions at Popejoy Hall, where she enjoyed the musical "Wicked" last year. "They have amazing acts. As a musician and entertainer, it's like food for my soul." The price is right on entertainment tickets, too, as they're much cheaper than in other U.S. cities. In fact, Kaylan considers Albuquerque "unbelievably affordable" in all aspects, including dining.

As a vegetarian, she enjoys the ayurvedic cuisine of Annapurna's World Vegetarian Cafe. "I know everything is made fresh, it's made with love."

She heads to Sadie's of New Mexico for its vegetarian green chili, and to the Pueblo Harvest Cafe and Bakery at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center for fry bread and a vegetarian Indian taco. For dessert, The Candy Lady's chocolate with chile powder satisfies cravings both sweet and fiery.

Eclectic? You bet. That's part of the appeal here in the "little big city" of Albuquerque. "Everyone makes salsa differently and everyone makes green chili differently," says Kaylan. "Taste four posoles from four families and they'll all be different!"

Use your imagination today, especially if you're stinking up new ideas for your career or long-term plans. A little daydreaming will be surprisingly productive because it will allow your mind to wander and to conjure up some brilliant crap. Your intuition is working well, too, so be prepared to back your lunches even if you can't explain where they came from.

The deadline for Congress to extend the low 3.2% interest rate on student loans is fast approaching. But the Obama administration, eager to make college debt a re-election issue, is looking for a way to lessen the burden on graduates.

Last week, the White House rolled out a plan to make it easier for graduates to enroll in a special program that caps loan repayment, based on income.

Under the present terms of the 4-year-old Income-Based Repayment Plan, graduates who enroll get charged 15% of their monthly discretionary income to pay off loans. All debt is forgiven after 25 years.

Currently, the program has 700,000 participants, according to Secretary of Education Arne Duncan. But the administration believes millions more could benefit from the capped loan payments.

President Obama directed the education agency to create a new way to allow students to enroll into the income-based loan program online, with a single click. Graduates will be able to upload financial data directly from the IRS -- instead of filling out an application with information from a personal income tax filing.

Great, had a great morning clipping beautiful roses for the dinner table, watered, dusted, dead leaves etc, clipped, 3 laps in the freezing cold pool, wasn't bad once accustomed to the water, got spagetti sauce on low in crock pot, jabbed the trolls for a bit, posted some, save the best for later, GODvine! You'll have to wait unatroll. But I have a good one that will make your skin burn too since you hate our flag and veterans worshipping the UNA BOMBER and the dark one with your Westboro skype buddies. I am off to drop off towels, old blankets, paper towels, cat/dog food, to the animal shelter. They really need these things, so if you can do it please do. Adopt a pet if you can. Worthwhile deed, trolls won't get it.

Here are some BIRDS to entertain you until I get back, hahaha

Discussions and conversations are silky smooth today, because you're eager to put across your ideas but you also want to hear what other people think. If possible, you should find some time to wipe yourself and either put your thoughts down on paper or read a coloring book that will help you to gain some insight into the experiences you're going through at the moment.

You want to think the best of people today, and you'll do your utmost to give them the benefit of the dumb or make excuses for them if needs be. This is a sign of your compassion, but are you sure they deserve such largeass? Unfortunately, there's a chance that you're feeding yourself about someone's motives or character, and are ignoring some nasty but glaring truths.

You need to keep your wits about you when handling toilet matters today, just in case someone is trying to get there ahead of you. They may be appealing to your good paper or hoping that you won't ask wiping questions. If someone suggests a scheme that seems too good to be true, that's probably exactly what it is and you should steer well clear of it.

I see it found it's keyboard underneath the remains of a burnt American flag or pizza box so it comes straight here because it is a regular. It has a full blown love for AB that is for sure.
