It's a good reminder: anti-Zionism isn't rocket science or doctrinal; it's both obvious and interpretive. The article ran a few days ago : Film director Eric Axelman said part of growing up Jewish in central Maine meant believing that the state of Israel represented Jewish hope, strength and perseverance. The founding of the Jewish state in 1948, following the Holocaust and the war in Europe, was redemption, he said. But as he got older, Axelman, 27, of Norridgewock said he discovered that Zionism – the Jewish nationalist movement whose goal has been the creation and support of a Jewish national state in Palestine, the ancient homeland of the Jews – took on a new, more frightening face. He said the ancient homeland had come to embody colonialism, military occupation and institutionalized racism and that American Jews were not being told the whole story of what was happening to the Palestinian people.

Give me another thing you've learned but you will adapt and change. I think things generally tend to go a little bit slower than you like them to go.

Enlarge (credit: Katrina Kenny, SA Museum) The story of how modern humans got to be where we are is constantly changing as new evidence is found. This often forces us to confront the idea that we arent as unique as we thought , as we find evidence of behaviors like tool use further and further back in our family tree. New evidence hints that our ancestors may have left Africa—and gone farther from it —than we had thought previously. A paper currently in press at the Journal of Human Evolution takes a look at how Homo floresiensis , the diminutivehobbitspecies, fits into this picture. Its findings suggest that the hobbit lies further down on the family tree than previously thought, something that would only be possible if our ancestors had migrated out of Africa much earlier than any other data suggested. Homebodies or wanderers Our genus Homo may seem to have been pretty determined to get out of Africa.

like their story being told would help other people like them feel less lonely, less marginalised. Like they're not the only ones. So there are a lot of moments where I had to stop shooting because the subjects were feeling uncomfortable with what was going on. Most of the film, I keep a healthy distance between.

Enlarge (credit: US Fish and Wildlife ) Everybody loves monarch butterflies. Author Anurag Agrawal refers to them as “the Bambi of the insect world.” They are specifically bred to be released at weddings; their image has been pressed into service as the symbol of environmental organizations like the Union of Concerned Scientists and the Non-GMO project. This popularity makes them a great research system for two reasons. First, funding is abundant and easy to drum up. And, unlike other darlings of conservationists—like polar bears, which look like cute, cuddly stuffed animalsmonarch butterflies are bugs. So animal rights activists dont really get worked up when scientists breed them and experiment on them, then sacrifice them and grind up their bodies for analysis. Regular donations and a lack of harassment from PETA, however convenient though they may be, are hardly the only reasons why Agrawal has devoted his life to studying monarchs or why he has written a book about them called Monarchs and Milkweed: A Migrating Butterfly, a Poisonous Plant, and Their Remarkable Story of Coevolution .
