'Criminal' penguin caught on film

"Adelies are like festival-goers that have had too much caffeine," he said. "They’re aggressive and hyperactive."
Despite this, Mr Smith managed to capture a remarkable sequence, with one penguin repeatedly returning to its nest to add stones, apparently unaware of the fact that his neighbour would steal a stone every time his nest was unattended.

No Dinosaurs in Heaven is a film essay by Emmy Award-winning director (Before Stonewall, Paris Was a Woman) and science educator Greta Schiller that examines the hijacking of science education by religious fundamentalists, threatening the separation of church and state, and dangerously undermining scientific literacy.

The documentary weaves together two strands: 

  1. An examination of the problem posed by creationists who earn science education degrees only to advocate anti-scientific beliefs in the classroom; and
  2. A visually stunning raft trip down the Grand Canyon, led by Dr. Eugenie Scott, that debunks creationist explanations for its formation. 

These two strands expose the fallacies in the so-called “debate” manufactured by anti-science forces, that creationism is a valid scientific alternative to evolution.

No Dinosaurs in Heaven intelligently argues that public education must steadfastly resist the encroachment of religion in the form of anti-evolution creationism, and that science literacy is crucial to a healthy democracy.

Peaceable Kingdom
Peaceable Kingdom is a documentary produced in 2004 by Tribe of Heart[1][2] that shows how some farmers refuse to kill animals and how they convert to veganism as a way of life. They create an animal sanctuary farm called “Farm Sanctuary” where they collect many injured animals, half dead, abandoned and rejected by the industry for not being productive.[3] Some examples of this would be a cow with mastitis or newborn chicks unfit for production.
It has won awards, such as the Festival Theme Award in 2004 of the Ojai Film Festival,[4] with music by Moby. Images of exploitations are shown during the film. According to the prestigious primatologist Jane Goodall, “Peaceable Kingdom is a piece of art”[5]

Mother: Caring our way out of the population dilemma
“Mother, the film, breaks a 40-year taboo by bringing to light an issue that silently fuels our most pressing environmental, humanitarian and social crises - population growth…”
Not sure I would have used the word “dilemma”, it’s more like an epidemic.

Looks interesting

Taiji Opens Season on Dolphins

Last year, buzz from The Cove halted  the hunt for a few days, as the area was flooded with media. But  Japan refused to bend to the pressure, and resumed the hunt as usual.

Dolphin hunting season officially started yesterday.

Though the hunt began again this year, O’Barry says, “I’m not losing  hope. Our voice is being heard in Taiji.” He provides a phone number for  calling leaders at the Japanese Embassy in Washington, D.C., as well as  donate to the cause on Take  Part.

Donate here.
Call the Japanese Embassy in Washington D.C. at 202-238-6700.
Watch Blood Dolphins on Discovery.

Tearing up in the library. This isn’t right.
