Join us as we invite a classic species of African tree to tell of its benevolent relationship with mammals in its own voice.

Join us as we compare a wide range of bony fishes with respect to a body part that is among the least free-swimming in humans: the pelvis. While fishes are surprisingly consistent in also possessing a pelvis, they take a surprisingly slippery approach to where this should be located – in some cases sliding it as far forward as the lower jaw.

Join us as we compare and contrast the sargassumfish with the four-winged flying fish, seemingly incompatible forms closely coexisting far out at sea.

Join us as we compare and contrast rock hyraxes and rock-wallabies, paradoxically divergent boulder-dwellers, in what appear to be mirror-image habitats west and east of the Indian Ocean. What makes all the difference to their evolution, we suggest, has been the constant pressures from predators in Africa – particularly those underestimated baboons.
The Hypertail And The Infratail: Axes From The Sublime To The Ridiculous?

Join us as we compare and contrast sunfish and oarfish, which have shapes so disparate as to hail from different planets. Not only is the ocean sunfish the heaviest and the oarfish the longest of all bony fishes, but both have virtually reinvented the concept of the fish tail – and perhaps how to swim in the first place.
Honey! It Turned to Sugar
By Grant Gillard
Price: Free! Words: 2,710. Language: English. Published: October 16, 2012. Category: Nonfiction » Health, wellbeing, & medicine » healthy living
I produce local, raw honey which is often subject to granulation issues. Often, people think (erroneously) that granulated honey went "bad," or it "turned to sugar." The other stuff, the mass produced store-brand honey comingled with cheap, foreign honey is pasteurized and filtered to retard granulation, but it is robbed of its nutritional value. This manuscript details granulation issues.
