Beili Liu: The Mending Project | Violence Meets Women's Work

Chinese-born artist Beili Liu received the Austin (Texas) Critis’ Table Award 2010-2011, Outstanding Installation last June for ‘The Mending Project’, a performance art and installation project consisting of hundreds of Chinese scissors suspended from the ceiling in a shimmery but dangerous cloud.

The piece involved the artist sitting in front of a small black table, hand-mending patches of fabric together which visitors are encouraged to cut themselves near the entrance. As the performance continues, the piece grows as one continuous cloth lying spread on the floor.

Overhead, the hovering mass of the downward-pointed scissors represents the distant fear and looming violence present in today’s cultural climate. The sharp blades above the artist contrast with the silent and simple act of mending. The conflicting reality of fear and danger contrast with the calming effect of the sewing, creating a surreal atmosphere in the room.

Critical Gender Differences In Gibbons Learning Process

Credit: iStockphoto/Catharina Van Den DikkenbergGreenTracker| Women investors achieve better results than men, because they are more cautious. Even the Wall Street Journal wrote in 2009 For Mother’s Day, Give Her Reins to the Portfolio.

New research into gibbons, led by Dr Clare Cunningham, a psychology lecturer at Abertay University, suggests that females apply caution in undertaking experiences with new tools but perform better than males with training.

Male and female gibbons were observed using a rake-like tool.

Feeding Male Great Tits Makes Lazy Birds Unwilling To Get Up & Sing for a Mate

Who in her right mind would oppose feeding the birds? An evolutionary biology sexuality expert might, based on news of what happens to male great tits, when their stomachs are full.

Valentin Amrhein of the University of Basel, in Switzerland, asked himself if feeding birds is good for them. His study is small — just 28 male great tits (no kidding) living in the suburbs of Oslo in Spring 2007 and observed at dawn three times, with 16-17 days between observations.

The first observation took place in the absence of supplementary food. Immediately afterwards, a feeder was provided within the observed male’s territory. Half of these feeders were kept filled with food, but half remained empty. Full or empty, each feeder was left in place for 16-17 days, at which time a second observation was made and the feeder was removed. The third and final observation was made 17 days after this. via The Economist

When humans wake up to a bucolic big tit chorus, it sounds like every bird is having a great time. In fact, male birds have to get up early, not having eaten anything all night, and expose themselves to rain, sleet, hail, snow and high winds. The great tits are demonstrating their worthiness to females as breeding mats.

You’ve heard that the early bird gets the worm, but he also gets the girl bird.

Dr. Amrhein thought birds fed extra food would be in the front row of the early morning bird song chorous. Quite the opposite occured. Basically the birds fed extra bird seed became lazy louts, refusing to wake up and sing. The effect was sustained even after the food was removed.

Having become couch potatos, the male big tits expressed little concern that the sun was up and they weren’t singing.

Restoring the Reputation of The Female Preying Mantis

We so love sex in nature stories at AOC. They’re far more exciting than any trouble Carrie ever got into on ‘Sex and the City’. It seems that the reputation of the female praying mantis is besmirched by incompetent science. Jezebel is hot on the trail of the story, via I Blame the Patriarchy.

New research tells a different story about Ms. Praying Mantis, who is only a predator 5-31% of the time, based on new observations. The original research conclusions were drawn on preying mantises that were most likely hungry.

The mantis has an enormous appetite, eating up to sixteen crickets a day, but is not limited to just insects. They are carnivorous and cannibalistic, and only eat live prey in both nymph and adult stages. Caged in a jar, rather than in open-air living, the mantis will bite.

“Placing them in the same jar, the male, in alarm, endeavoured to escape. In a few minutes the female succeeded in grasping him. She first bit off his front tarsus, and consumed the tibia and femur. Next she gnawed out his left eye…it seems to be only by accident that a male ever escapes alive from the embraces of his partner” Leland Ossian Howard, Science, 1886.

When observed ‘au naturel’, cannibalism occurs much less often. Besides, asks writer Michele Doughty, why is it a catastrophe that the male mantis dies, passing on his genes and vitamins to his offspring, so that they can continue the chain of evolution.

We had a very smart-ass hypothesis regarding the Praying mantis being hungry story, comparing her to fruit flies. Whereas male are relentless in their pursuit of especially beautiful and sexy fruit flies, causing her to nearly starve for lack of time to eat, the mating ritual among the praying mantis appears to involve much more mutuality.

Status vs Money | A Third Look At Happiness, Gender Equality & Taxes

For decades capitalist economists believed that money made people happy. And yet, the truth is that while having money is definitely preferable to being poor, there’s no positive correlation between general wealth and individual wellbeing.

Redefining Happiness & Wellbeing

Global thinkers and citizens want to define happiness and wellbeing on a much broader scale.

As countries increase their wealth, happiness levels have stayed the same. America led the way in promoting the idea that s(he) who has the most things is the happiest. At a top level, America pioneered the assumption that the greater GDP (gross domestic product), the happier that country’s population.

The problem for measurers of happiness is that as incomes have risen around the world, people’s happiness has not. This reality led two psychologists Chris Boyce at the University of Warwick and Simon Moore at Cardiff University to explore another idea.

If incomes were rising for everyone, perhaps status was the driver, meaning that if people determine their happiness based on their relative position against another person in the group, happiness levels wouldn’t rise if the entire group prospered.

An improved standard of living for all was the ‘new normal’ — so why be happier. Boyce and Moore argue that equality doesn’t make us happy.

'Glow-in-the-dark' Sperm Reveal Sexy Secrets

This is the reproductive tract (less ovaries) of female D. melanogaster initially mated to GFP-sperm male then remated to RFP-sperm male. Green sperm heads have left the storage organs and can be seen mixing with red sperm heads in the bursa. (Credit: Scott Pitnick, Syracuse University)RoseTracker| Creative thinking inspired Syracuse University biology professors to genetically alter the heads of fruitflies to be green or red. Because most of nature is promiscuous, meaning that the female mates with more than one male, in search for the best sperm for her offspring — it’s been very difficult for researchers to keep track of events within her body.

Besides the female practicing her own Darwinian supreme sperm selection, rival sperm are competing to fertilize her eggs. We know that these rival sperm will even form teams, supporting their guy’s sperm, much like a hockey team bands together for victory.

Sexy Fruit Flies Have Fewer Babies

Save & Close

http://bit.ly/6BgMPl

When the subject is fruit flies, some females are just too sexy for their own good.

A new study proclaims that ‘sexier’ female fruit flies suffer more than unattractives ones. Now ladies … no clapping. Tristan Long, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Toronto explains that

The reason is twofold: The repeated advances hindered the females’ ability to find food, and too much sex left the females overloaded with toxic semen, Long said. via National Geographic

Bottom line, the pretty girl fruit flies didn’t have as many babies. Whoever said that science is boring has it all wrong.

I’m curious what the implications are for sexy women, in this evolutionary study. We think they have the perfect life — thin, beautiful, rich, handsome husband.
