The Innovation of Loneliness. The Limits of Friendship.

Robin Dunbar came up with his eponymous number almost by accident.

The Limits of Friendship

The University of Oxford anthropologist and psychologist (then at University College London) was trying to solve the problem of why primates devote so much time and effort to grooming. In the process of figuring out the solution, he chanced upon a potentially far more intriguing application for his research. At the time, in the nineteen-eighties, the Machiavellian Intelligence Hypothesis (now known as the Social Brain Hypothesis) had just been introduced into anthropological and primatology discourse. It held that primates have large brains because they live in socially complex societies: the larger the group, the larger the brain. Thus, from the size of an animal’s neocortex, the frontal lobe in particular, you could theoretically predict the group size for that animal.

Looking at his grooming data, Dunbar made the mental leap to humans. The Dunbar number is actually a series of them. The Limits of Friendship.

Prince Ea

Early life[edit] Prince Ea was born as Richard Williams on September 16, 1988 in St. Louis, Missouri, the youngest of three children, and has resided there his whole life. The alias Prince Ea is derived from Sumerian mythology ("The prince of the Earth"). He has also graduated from the University of Missouri-St. Music career[edit] Generation Y: why young job seekers want more than money. Employment prospects are looking up for this year's university-leavers, with graduate recruitment on the rise and starting salaries higher than the UK average.

Generation Y: why young job seekers want more than money

However, research shows that for the youngest generation entering the workplace, financial security is not what matters most. As the first generation to grow up in a society of eco-consciousness, Generation Y, those born between 1980 and 2000, are less interested in financial gain than their parents, and more concerned with job fulfilment. "Generation Y views a job not just as a means to pay the rent, rather a route to exploring their passions, hobbies and philosophies," says Arthur Kay, a recent graduate who set up the social business Bio-bean – an enterprise that collects waste coffee grounds and turns them into fuels.

Tue, Sep 16 2014 - 6:00pm Stewart Brand, Co-founder, Revive and Restore; Founder, The Long Now Foundation; Founder/Editor, The Whole Earth Catalogue Ryan Phelan, Co-founder and Executive Director, Revive & Restore Brand and Phelan seek to restore extinct species to their former homes in the wild. Their organization Revive & Restore’s flagship project The Great Passenger Pigeon Comeback is underway to bring the iconic passenger pigeon back from extinction using the genome of the band-tailed pigeon and genomic technology. Not shying away from the gargantuan challenges of de-extinction, the organization is pushing forward an endeavor to recreate the woolly mammoth in order to generate ecosystem changes capable of altering adverse climate change on a global scale.

These audacious projects also advance the use of biotechnology for the genetic rescue of existing endangered species, such as Revive & Restore’s newest project: the endangered black-footed ferret.

In 2010, a young man on a quest for enlightenment walked into the office of Jerry Hatfield, director of the USDA’s National Laboratory for Agriculture and the Environment in Ames, Iowa.

His name was John Kempf, and he was eager to learn more about Hatfield’s plant physiology work, which deals with the complicated interactions of plants, soils and the atmosphere. The two talked agronomy for several hours before Hatfield sent Kempf on his way with a stack of literature to devour. The visit was just one of many steps on Kempf’s journey, which had begun six years earlier in a blighted cantaloupe patch. 8958000985_3fe94e6759_h.jpg (JPEG Image, 1151 × 1600 pixels) - Scaled (62%) Feel Like A Number Lyrics - Bob Seger. Capture the ephemeral spectacle of autumn colours. There is something magical about the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. For me, autumn represents a period of change when nature girds its loins for the long and slow descent into winter. Just occasionally we're graced with an Indian summer. The extra boost of warmth on our faces this late sun provides give us that last opportunity to secure a dose of vitamin D, but it is with a sense of foreboding that we watch as the trees begin to cast long shadows.

These shady places are of course in stark contrast to the "golden light" created from the sun's position as it steadily becomes pulled ever closer to the horizon, making this a great season for beautifully lit and atmospheric photography. The season has, almost by default, become defined by its most powerful images: that of leaves changing colour. Seasonal mellowness aside, an autumnal storm is more than capable of creating an equally memorable experience. And what about the kingdom of the fungi? Capture the ephemeral spectacle of autumn colours. Feel Like A Number Lyrics - Bob Seger.

Organic architecture is a philosophy of architecture which promotes harmony between human habitation and the natural world through design approaches so sympathetic and well integrated with its location, buildings, furnishings, and surroundings become part of a unified, symbiotic composition.

Mr. Rise of the single dish restaurant. It's often said that less is more, and the restaurant industry has taken this literally with a flurry of single and dual dish restaurants opening lately. Like the trend for shorter wine lists, menus are becoming pared down with just a handful of options. Lifestyle. We will never tire of the positive effects of nature. Its calming, soothing and inspiring influence will never go out of style. The more we rush, the more time we spend indoors staring at our screens and devices, the more urban our lifestyles become, the more we crave and need time away from it all.

It has been amazing to follow the newest solutions to the old dilemmas: How to bring more green space to cities; how to reclaim underused urban land for recreational and other "green" uses; how to provide more and more people the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of spending time in nature.

Offices for Junta de Castilla y León by Alberto Campo Baeza.

Spanish architect Alberto Campo Baeza has concealed an office block with walls made entirely of glass behind a sandstone enclosure in the Spanish city of Zamora (+ slideshow). The architect matched the stone of the site's perimeter walls exactly to the exterior of the neighbouring Romanesque cathedral, which is located in the west of the historic walled city. Behind the screen walls, two irregularly shaped courtyards are positioned either side of the glass building that houses the advisory board for the autonomous region of Castilla y León.
