On the expedition, volunteers will also visit world famous wilderness areas, including a night camping on the Ngorongoro Crater rim with a day exploring the wildlife within, and seeing Lake Natron! Volunteers will have the opportunity to contribute REAL data for the management of the refuge. They will learn how to use GPS, navigational tools and species identification techniques to conduct transects for large mammals and create giraffe identikits.
Lush Life: The Music of Brazil's Doris Monteiro Like a hot breath of summer, Doris Monteiro’s Agora opens with the sultry rhythms of a most startling number, “Maitá”. In it, she sings of the innocuous pleasures of escape; leaving for no reason other than the possibility that the view is better somewhere else. Maybe it’s a stretch of land, a farm, some earthly respite situated by the sea. Whether she gets there or not isn’t the point.

Cats in Persian manuscripts Since August 8th is International Cat Day, it seemed a good excuse to publish some of the more picturesque felines from the manuscripts we have been working with during the last three years of our project ‘Digital Access to Persian Manuscripts’. Double-page opening to the tales of the two jackals Kalilah and Dimnah, by Naṣr Allāh ibn Muḥammad, dated AH 707/1307-8. Here the king is enthroned on the left, surrounded by courtiers with two lions beneath and, on the right, hunting cheetahs, a horse and a hawk (Or.13506, ff 2v-3r) The most frequently illustrated is probably the lion who features alternately as the noble king of the animals and a ferocious wild creature. In the context of animal tales, which abound in Persian literature, the lion is often accompanied by the leopard. The snow leopard, especially, was prized for its coat which, like the famous tiger skin of the warrior Rustam, appears in paintings, worn by heroes and kings.

‘I rule my own ocean micronation’ Michael Bates grew up seven nautical miles off the coast of England, on a platform made of concrete and metal. Michael, the son of Roy Bates, is the Prince of the Principality of Sealand, a contested micronation that, despite its size, has become a darling of adventurers and journalists alike. Sealand has a football team, its flag has been run up Mount Everest, and it offers personalised knighthood for a mere £99 ($145). Today, as futurists, tech billionaires and libertarians start looking to the sea for the next stage of cities and governance, Sealand serves as a tiny example, a strange and intriguing case study of all the good and the bad of living on the waves. What can the experiences of the Bates family tell those who dream about ocean living?

Hygge: The Dark Side of Danish Comfort, a Story by Dorthe Nors Dorthe Nors | Longreads | August 2015 | 8 minutes (1,904 words) Our latest Longreads Exclusive is a previously unpublished short story by Danish writer Dorthe Nors, as chosen by Longreads contributing editor A. N. Ballet in Brazil's 'Crackland' On the outskirts of Sao Paulo in Brazil, the rough Luz neighbourhood - known as Cracolandia or "Crackland" locally for its widespread use of crack cocaine – might seem a world away from the beauty and grace usually associated with ballet. But there’s another side to life in Luz, in a country that’s among the world's biggest consumers of crack cocaine. Young girls get in a minibus, sometimes with people sleeping on the streets around them, and travel to the New Dreams dance studio, where they don pointe shoes, tights and tutus to take ballet classes. For the young girls learning to jump, plie and pirouette, the studio aims to introduce them to the discipline and rewards of ballet.
HKUPress 香港大學出版社 Transnational Feminism and Women's Movements in Post-1997 Hong Kong: Solidarity Beyond the State Digital edition also available: Google Play | Kindle This study demonstrates that recognizing the differences of the women activists promoting disparate agendas leads to a fuller appreciation of the connections and commonalities in the relations among those involved. Transnational Feminism and Women's Movements in Post-1997 Hong Kong: Solidarity Beyond the State is the first comprehensive account of feminism and women's movements in Hong Kong. The unique geographical, historical and cultural situation of the city provides the backdrop for Adelyn Lim to bring diverse groups of activists organizing socially disadvantaged and disaffected women, many of whom originating from Mainland China or South and Southeast Asia, to the foreground.
