Yet another example of how science is catching up to ancient wisdom. And, a reminder that the “vibrations” they talk about (and have apparently turned into music- how cool is THAT?!) aligns with things like String Theory. Everything has a molecular vibration, says science….
Since I was young, I can remember knowing that women in Africa are considered more beautiful the larger they are. Then in the past few years, I learned more about how this led to abuse of women as brides were force fed and made fat (like cattle)….a “tradition” that gives me chills and made me ill.
Now it seems that the tide is turning, at least in Sudan. This article is interesting as it talks about how more gyms are popping up and women there are taking ownership of their health. I’m sure there’s more cultural nuances than we may ever know or understand, but I’d venture to say this is generally a good trend.
This is a cool study. But, you know what gets me about it? …why is it SUCH a big surprise that horses can match voices to people? I think this kind of study just illustrates the innate bias we have towards animals. Do we just think they are all stupid? It’s like we’re all shocked when they exhibit anything we consider a “human” trait. But there is so much animal behavior that WE’VE adopted, I think- not the other way around necessarily.
So, just as your dog knows you, your horse knows you. This is a big “breakthrough” why?
Study results suggest horses appear capable of matching voices to faces when it comes to humans they know.

In watching the movie’s story unfold, we’re essentially reliving the last decade or so of American existence. And, seeing it unfold on screen is just as heartbreaking as watching ourselves, offscreen, give up our values and ideals in the name of protecting ourselves from “the enemy.” We’ve already entered that darkness, and it has blinded us.
A breakdown of political themes from the most recent Star Trek movie, for your reading enjoyment!
Dug this up out of my bookmarks. Photographs really are an extraordinary way to give rebirth to the stories we’ve forgotten, and remember our collective world history….because it all moves so fast, and sometimes even the tragedies get brushed aside for new memories.
We mustn’t forget our stories. These were only 2 years ago, and I looked at this, thinking “oh yeah…how could I forget about that?!”
Here you will find my musings, machinations, and general philosophizing on society, politics, health, relationships, science, TV, fashion....you name it, I'll probably write about it.
