From Gombe to the Union’s Hawking Fellowship: A look at Jane Goodall’s remarkable career – Varsity Online

When Jane Goodall made her first major discoveries about chimpanzees, she faced opposition from many both within and outside the field of anthropology. Not only was she a young woman conducting cutting-edge research with little-to-no training, but she insisted on talking about the personalities of the chimpanzees she knew. Fast forward to today: she is now recognised as having made revolutionary contributions to the science of ethology, and is acknowledged as a world-leading conservationist and animal rights activist.

Goodall left the UK for Kenya in 1957, aged just 23, to pursue her dream of studying animals in the wild. There, thanks to a blessing of good fortune, she met the famouspalaeoanthropologist Dr Louis Leakey, who employed her as a secretary; he quickly realised that her fascination for animals was not just a passing phase, and so offered her a job studying wild chimpanzees at the Gombe Stream Reserve (now a National Park). Other than a two-and-a-half-month study conducted 30 years previously by Dr Henry Nissen, no one had spent an extended period of time observing wild chimpanzee behaviour. At the time, no one predicted quite how long the Gombe research project would last.

In 1960, having secured a small amount of money for essentials, Goodall headed into the forest with her mother, Vanne, bringing little more than a notebook and a pair of binoculars. It took her several months for any of the chimpanzees to allow her to come close enough to observe them, and Goodall often cites those first few months as the most difficult period of her research. Time was quickly running out for her to discover something significant enough to secure more funds and continue the project.

Eventually, four long months after arriving at Gombe and relentlessly clambering around the forests, a chimpanzee whom Jane had named David Greybeard, on account of his distinctive grey chin hairs, gifted her her first major observation: watching from a good distance away through her binoculars, Goodall observed him carefully trimming the edges of a blade of grass before inserting it into a hole in a termite nest. She had observed a chimpanzee not just using a tool but making one.

Other animals had, at this point, already been observed to use tools in the wild, but no non-human animal had been known to make them, something then held as central to anthropologists definition of humans. After telegramming her unprecedented discovery through to Leakey, she received the following famous reply: scientists holding to this definition are faced with three choices: they must accept chimpanzees as man, by definition; they must redefine man; or they must redefine tools. Goodalls discovery sent shockwaves through the world of anthropology. Many struggled to accept her observations, with some even claiming she had taught the chimpanzees herself!

Once this was coupled with her second major discovery that chimpanzees hunt and eat meat, when they had previously been presumed to be vegetarian a batch of funding from the National Geographic Society was secured, and the Gombe Stream research project became firmly established.

Having now reached 60 years of continuous data collection and monitoring, it has yielded a wealth of knowledge about the complex structure of chimpanzee society, their multifaceted relationships with one another and the true extent of their emotional and conventional intelligence.

These discoveries sparked the beginning of the longest running study ever conducted on wild chimpanzees. Having now reached 60 years of continuous data collection and monitoring, it has yielded a wealth of knowledge about the complex structure of chimpanzee society, their multifaceted relationships with one another and the true extent of their emotional and conventional intelligence.

In 1962, Leakey enrolled Goodall in a PhD in Ethology at the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Robert Hinde; Goodall had never previously heard of the subject. Here, she battled continual opposition to the idea of calling chimpanzees by name, talking about their personalities or emotions, or even using gendered pronouns to describe their actions. On submitting her first paper for publication, the editors crossed out every he, she and who, replacing them with it and which. Furious, Goodall crossed the objectifying pronouns out, unbothered by the possible reactions of the editors; the journal eventually relented.

Despite these early struggles, Goodall succeeded in bringing the fascinating lives of the Gombe chimpanzees into the public eye. Some achieved near-celebrity status, notably the following: the gentle David Greybeard, who first accepted Jane as a strange, hairless but harmless ape; the playful, mischievous young Fifi, who went on to mother the most offspring of any chimpanzee in the reserve to this day; and old Flo, who was even granted an obituary in The Sunday Times when she passed away in 1972.

But Goodalls contributions go beyond just her observations of chimpanzees capacity for love and compassion; she also observed a four-year long period of warfare between the neighbouring chimpanzee communities of Kasakela and Kahama, which led to the deaths of at least six chimpanzees in a variety of brutal ways and to the disappearances of five more. This quickly contributed to the public opinion of chimpanzees as violent, aggressive animals. Even now, on typing chimpanzee into Google, the first suggestion is chimpanzee attack, the sixth chimpanzee strength and the seventh chimpanzee rips face off. Given the vastly greater number of observations which hint at the deep levels of care and compassion in our great ape relative, one wonders whether this says more about humans than it does about chimpanzees.

... are we, at our core, aggressive animals whose violent tendencies are only kept in check by human society, or are we caring, compassionate individuals whose violent mishaps are the result of societys pressures and restrictions?

Until Goodall observed this behaviour, we were the only animals known to engage in warfare. Yet again, she had discovered a behaviour which pulled our two species closer together across evolutionary time. The centuries-old debate between philosophers Thomas Hobbes and Jean-Jacques Rousseau on the true nature of humankind was rekindled: are we, at our core, aggressive animals whose violent tendencies are only kept in check by human society, or are we caring, compassionate individuals whose violent mishaps are the result of societys pressures and restrictions? As with the majority of these debates, the dichotomy is a false one, and the truth probably lies somewhere between the two. But Goodall certainly brought discussions about the evolutionary origins of human behaviours into the public sphere.

Around the late 1980s, Goodalls focus underwent a shift from increasing our understanding of chimpanzee behaviour to spreading awareness of their plight. Citing a 1986 conference in Chicago as the turning point, Goodall now spends up to 300 days a year travelling around the world to tell the story of wild chimpanzees and their struggle for survival in a world which leaves less and less space for them. Threatened by habitat loss due to climate change and land conversion, as well as by the bushmeat and pet trades, chimpanzee populations have declined by 90% in the last 20 years in key areas of their (now much reduced) range.

Her philosophy is a powerful one: humans will not save wild chimpanzees if they do not care about them, and we cannot possibly care for them if we dont understand them.

Goodall combines her work for chimpanzee conservation with her campaigns for animal welfare and the humane treatment of chimpanzees in captivity, either for medical testing or in zoos, and for the ban of chimpanzees in cosmetics testing and as pets. Her philosophy is a powerful one: humans will not save wild chimpanzees if they do not care about them, and we cannot possibly care for them if we dont understand them.

Goodall founded the Roots & Shoots programme in 1991, after a group of young people confided in her about their concerns for the future of the natural world. The programme now operates in 50 countries and has 700,000 members, helping young people work for and implement positive change for themselves, the environment and the animals they share it with.

Her community-focused work and sheer dogged optimism, which she frequently cites as stemming from working with hopeful young people keen to bring about change, has earned her the appointment as UN Messenger for Peace and a DBE. Her full list of awards and honours is extensive enough to merit its own article, but it includes the Kyoto Prize (Japans most prestigious award), the Benjamin Franklin Medal for life sciences, and the Gandhi-King Award for non-violence. But, perhaps most important of all, her legacy will be a generation of informed, compassionate environmental leaders, who have both hope for the future and the tools to affect change.

Jane Goodall has been named as speaker for the Professor Hawking Fellowship Lecture 2020 at the Cambridge Union. The Fellowship goes to those who are distinguished in STEM and have made a historic contribution to social discourse. Goodall has achieved both with flying colours, having revolutionised our understanding of primate behaviour and committed several decades to spreading awareness of animal welfare and conservation issues. The virtual lecture will take place on Monday 9th November.

Once a general store in the early 1900s, this tiny building in Columbia could be demolished – Charleston Post Courier

Posted: November 1, 2020 at 5:56 am

COLUMBIA At 460 square feet, this tiny brick building on Columbias main drag boasts a backstory that flies in the face of South Carolina's racially charged past.

It's a history that almost never was. And now it's at risk again.

The current owner of the building on the 2500 block of Gervais Street, Heather Cairns of Cairns Law Firm, pays tribute to the propertys origins and how it bucked the racial inequality of the time with a framed newspaper page in her law office. The newsprint displays an ad that the property was for sale, but just to Whites, a segregationist restriction allowed at the time.

That sale would fail, though, and a judge would later order the property sold.

This time, the property came into the hands of the Woodsons a Black family staking their claim on the precipice between the historically Black Waverly neighborhood and nearby Forest Hills, settled predominantly by Whites.

Cairns, a Cleveland native who has called Columbia home for more than 20 years, says she wants to preserve that part of the citys history, and with it, the legacy of the Woodson family.

For Cairns, it started with the Woodson home directly to the east. The house likely would have been torn down had Cairns not renovated it as an office, she said. Now, the real estate lawyer hopes to do the same for another small building on the property, once a neighborhood store run by the Woodson patriarch.

The roof of the former store is in bad shape and might fall in unless Cairns replaces it. She said she needs historic tax credits to make it financially feasible and is seeking the necessary zoning changes.

If renovated, Cairns plans to put it back to use, renting it out as a small office.

Its this cool little space, she said, complete with 9-foot ceilings and brick walls.

The diminutive buildingis now one of the shrinking number of business-related properties that were established within the residential fabric of Gervais Street, according to John Sherrer of the preservationist group Historic Columbia.

"This is one of my favorite 'little' properties in Columbia," he said. "I remember seeing this building standing there for at least the past 45 years, as its size and differing appearance from that of the house always caught my imagination, even as a kid."

Inside the former grocery, the shop counters are still in place. Most of the shelving is not, having been damaged by termites. There are lots of sewing needles and thread, wares the proprietor once sold.

Cairns isnt sure how long the Woodsons operated the shop, but the front step is well worn.

So there was clearly lots of foot traffic in and out of building, she said.

Cairn's interest in the property follows a long-held tradition in the Capital City. Its a common sight around Columbia, law firms housed in the city's historic homes.

And when she first started practicing law, Cairns worked for a firm that rented space in an old house. So she wanted to uphold that tradition when she hung her own shingle.

Before going into law, Cairns studied landscape and architecture. Digging into the state archives, from birth and death certificates to property and Census filings, also piqued her interest, given her professional focus on estate planning. It was pulling back a curtain on how the things she practices today were done a century before.

Cairns would learn George Woodson was born in 1865 at the end of the Civil War. His father, Elijah Woodson, started buying land as soon as the war ended to give to his sons. He signed his will to George with an X, a common practice during a time when slavery and educational inequality left many African Americans illiterate.

When Elijah Woodson died in the 1910s, a probate was opened.

Then, the whole thing fell apart, Cairns said.

Cairns said she looked with disbelief at a letter from the judge to George, chiding him for his failure to properly administer his fathers estate.

But that is because the federal government paid the heirs directly for land taken for Camp Jackson, now Fort Jackson, amid World War I, the judicial correspondence showed. That was likely the source of funds George Woodson used to buy the property on Gervais Street.

Prior to that, spotty Census records show George Woodson working for the Southern Railroad. His daughters made names for themselves as teachers, one of whom held positions of some prominence at Booker T. Washington High School, Columbias primary Black high school when the system was segregated.

A house on nearby Manning Avenue was still in the family, owned by a daughter-in-law who Cairns said died just this year.

Cairns said the small brick building has garnered sizable interest from local historic preservationists, like Robert Lewis, who has saved such buildings as the Curtiss Wright Hangar that is now home to the Hunter Gatherer Brewery and Alehouse.

"Nobody wants to see it gone," she said.

But many historic building tax credits require a minimum investment of $1 million, Cairns said, which the building's small size renders implausible.

That's why Cairns is looking to the city. She plans to seek a property tax abatement under the "Bailey Bill," which applies to renovations of historic buildings.

City officials expect it to go for a hearing before the Design/Development Review Commission in December.

Teachers turn to illegal gold panning as govt wages become ridiculous – New

Posted: at 5:56 am

By Robert Tapfumaneyi

MANY poorly paid Zimbabwean schoolteachers have literally abandoned the once venerated chalk, tie and suit combination for the dirt of illegal gold panning in some districts in Mashonaland Central province, it has emerged.

The teachers now plying their trade under the earth like termites took advantage of prolonged closure of schools following the Covid-19 pandemic in March.

The government has since ordered schools re-opening using a phased approach, but some teachers have not returned to work, opting to remain gold panning, buying and selling, among other extracurricular activities. was in Mashonaland Central province recently to find some educators have not heeded the call to return to the classroom as they have found the gold rush a suitable replacement to their misery.

We have been in the field since the closure of the schools because of coronavirus and it came as a blessing in disguise and we are earning more than we have been earning while in the classroom, said one teacher in Rushinga who requested anonymity.

When government said some classes should open, we have been checking if some of us have gone back to school but even headmasters are not attending to their office duties opting to do personal business to supplement their modest salaries.

In Mazowe, another teacher said there was more reward in gold panning than what they took home in terms of monthly wages from government.

I am not sure what amount of threats will make us go back to the classroom; worse still, a lot of kids have not returned to school for various reasons, he said.

Robson Chere Amalgamated Rural Teachers Union of Zimbabwe (ATRUZ) secretary general said educators have been reduced to vagabonds.

Teachers have been reduced to beggars due to slave wages they are receiving from the employer and they are now depending on food donated to them by community members and well-wishers, Chere told

We have recorded a higher number of suicide cases and domestic violence cases due to incapacitation.

Indeed, in some areas, teachers are resorting to gold panning as a means to survive, we are urging the employer to urgently address the livelihoods issues of our teachers by paying them a living wage so as to restore the dignity of our teachers.

Last week, government threatened to replace teachers who have not been reporting for duty since examination classes resumed post-lockdown period.

Teachers have declared they are incapacitated and are demanding that the employer increases their salaries to US$550 or equivalent in local currency.

Government says it has no money to meet the demands.

Trapped moisture is a spooky enemy to your house – The Daily World

Posted: at 5:55 am

Sometimes its the hidden, quiet monster that you should be the most afraid of. When it comes to your house, thats certainly the case!

During wet fall and winter months, especially, its time to keep your eye out for your homes worst enemy trapped moisture.

Of course fire, earthquake and wind storms are also to be prepared for, but its actually trapped moisture in a home that causes more damage in most houses.

Were not talking about a burst pipe which of course is also a concern instead we are talking about the sneaky type of moisture that comes from wet jackets and shoes, watering house plants, cooking, showering, wet pets, house leaks and more.

As those sources of moisture evaporate into thin air, they travel through the house until they find a cool wall surface, toilet tank, or even a thermal pane window to turn back into a liquid state. We are sure you have seen it happen!

When this water vapor finds these cool lower corners of rooms, bottom walls of closets and certainly anywhere in an unvented bathroom, it sticks and stays, creating a little environment for mold and mildew. None of this is good and it can be pre-vented literally.

Over the years working for NeighborWorks of Grays Harbor, we have inspected and directed the rehabilitation of hundreds of moisture-damaged homes. From the foundation to the roof, improper ventilation in one or more areas is usually the problem.

Moisture is tough on houses!

You may assume much of what you see in and around homes is just normal wear and tear things like peeling paint, curling shingles, rotted skirting, mold, mildew and bug damage. These are not normal and can be prevented with proper ventilation and timely maintenance.

As we said, its not just our rainy weather thats hard on a house, these other moisture sources even breathing all contribute to a potentially high humidity problem that can cause real trouble.

The good news is that specific vents can be installed in your roof, foundation, bath and kitchen to take care of the excess moisture.

Adequate ventilation defined

So, how do you know if your house is adequately ventilated?

Homes in our area should have one square foot of ventilation for every 150 square foot of foundation floor area. Same for the attic using roof vents. For example, a one-floor 1,200-square-foot house, divided by 150, would need 8 square feet of ventilation around the perimeter of the foundation and again in the roof.

This can be achieved by adding 1- square-foot foundation vents at every corner and evenly spaced around the foundation or skirting. For the roof, we recommend ridge and soffit venting, but there are other ways to get the job done.

Inside the house you should have a powered fan in the kitchen and each bathroom that is properly vented to the outside. While openable windows can help, they are not as efficient and only work if opened.

By installing these vents you have taken some of the preliminary measures needed for a healthy, home and you.

Is foundation wet?

Lets focus deeper attention on just one areathe foundationas a forgotten source of moisture.

Heres what you want to see and smell under your house:

At least one good, screened or covered access point to get under the house

18 to 24 inches or more of space from the ground to the floor joists.

Clean, dry 6-millimeter black plastic on the ground, laid tightly, anchored at the edges, cut around each pier block and overlapped at the seams by 12 inches.

Very few bugs, spiders or cobwebs.

No wood-type debris and nothing growing.

All areas of the foundation, especially under the kitchen and bath, should be dry. There should be lots of fresh air streaming through the vents and no odd smells, standing water or signs of animals.

All non-treated wood components should be dry, rot-free, away from soil and separated from any concrete using composition roofing or other water-proof barrier.

Ick! What now?

This is what you should do if you see or smell something you shouldnt:

If you see lots of spider webs, that usually indicates high moisture content in the air and may indicate you need more ventilation and/or a ground cover. Installing 6-mil black plastic on the ground under the house stops this moisture source, instantly.

Next, place a splash block or a pipe at each downspout to convey water away from the foundation

Now do the math for ventilation, adding more vents if needed.

If you find a water puddle on the plastic you need to play detective. If it is gray, filmy or soapy water, it means a sink, tub or washing machine drainpipe could be leaking. Operate each fixture, to find the leak point and repair it.

If the air smells or looks like toilet water, call a plumber! That water is hazardous to your health!

A puddle of clear water on the plastic can be from rain through a vent or a water supply line drip. We would first look at the water meter tattle-tale and see if there is a leak indicated. If not, look for another source and the reason why, like rainwater.

You may have to install splash blocks under downspouts to pipe it away. If you have a lot of ground water you may need a sump pump to carry it away from the house but avoid sending ground water into the city sewer system. Big no no!

Other issues to deal with

If you observe any signs left behind by critters like ammonia cat pee smells, feces, hair, tracks, or even the critter!trap or remove the animal and secure openings and under the edges of the skirt.

Finally, there may be small sawdust trails and holes peppering the wood, signs of powder-post beetles, or larger holes that ants or termites make. Poor ventilation and/or a steady source of moisture on wood can create a condition known to attract pests. Bottom line is you need to get rid of these pests and the moisture sources that allow them to be there! That may require the knowledge and products professionals use.

Depending on the level of damage, a professional pest spray, proper ventilation and removing all sources of moisture could cure the problem. If you wait too long, youll have to replace your foundation, sub-floor and skirting.

More coming soon on moisture

We have more to share about moisture. There is more to be addressed than just the foundation. Look for next weeks column!

Palace invasion: When the gods go on protest – Guardian

Posted: October 30, 2020 at 7:56 pm

The plundering of the Oba of Lagoss palace in last weeks statewide riots here gnaws the mind. The sacrilege, both to the stool and Lagos cultural heritage, is condemnable in its entirety. A thorough investigation by the police and a panel of inquiry can work out empirical details and bring the philistines to book. But in the interim, there are moral and socio-cultural issues that should not be glossed over. Let us ask: why was the palace invaded? Where were the gods and residents when the kingdoms heritage was being plundered and brought to ridicule? What is the affinity between the monarch and his subjects? Certainly, there are dimensions to these inquiries, but I find the theoretical explanation most convenient in this regard.Video footage of the invasion making rounds in social media is quite disturbing. Aggregate accounts suggested that the riot began as a street protest by residents, staging road-blocks in Lagos Island including Iga-Iduganran (the official residence of the Oba). Apparently displeased by the disturbance, the Oba allegedly called in the police to repel peaceful protesters. It became a faceoff, shots were fired and two of the protesters killed. With more rush of blood to the head, irate protesters went for the police station and subsequently for the palace. Eminence grise, a retired police chief, had to scale a fence to escape being lynched. Further angered by the flight, the mob in broad daylight descended on Iga, ransacked every valuables including artefacts and opa ase (staff of authority). They brought the palace down in mindless acts of desecration.

How the intricacy of termite nests inspired the design of a Swedish school – CNBC

Posted: at 7:53 pm

In towns and cities around the world, architects are constantly trying to design and develop buildings that are visually pleasing, energy efficient and long lasting. Their ideas are informed by an almost limitless range of factors, from budgetary and engineering constraints to historical and aesthetic concerns.

Perhaps surprisingly, however, the natural world can also be a direct source of inspiration.

Anders Nyquist's re-design of a school in Timr, Sweden, for instance, was inspired by termites.

"It's a biomimicry idea," Nyquist, who has been working as an architect since 1962, told CNBC's Sustainable Energy.

"The termite nest is a sun collector When the sun is shining on the tower, the nest, you heat up the whole nest."

Nyquist also explained that termites dug networks of underground canals into their nest, which cooled incoming air. This helped inspire his 1995 design for the LaggarbergSchool in Sweden.

An air inlet was built away from the main body of the building, with the school's basement acting as a "supply air canal."

Above ground, other sustainable features of the school include brick walls that can absorb heat, plants that are used to clean the air, and windows that provide ventilation during warm weather.

"When the sun is shining on the roof, the air will go slowly up to the chimneys on top of the building, and these chimneys are connected to the ventilation system from the classroom," Nyquist said.

"It means that in the winter, when it's minus 20 (degrees Centigrade, or minus 4 degrees Fahrenheit) we can heat up the air, up to plus two (degrees Centigrade) and it means that we are saving energy," he added. "This is also a part of the cooling system in the summer."

The school wasn't the first time Nyquist designed a project with sustainable principles in mind.

In the 1960s, he started work on a development near the Swedish city of Sundsvall.

"We bought 18 hectares of land and planned a village," he told CNBC. The focus of the scheme was sustainability, self-sufficiency and the environment. Features include the village having its own water supply as well as a small-scale waste water treatment scheme.

"You can't get a change until you have good examples," Nyquist went on to state. "My little village here is just a good example, and Laggarberg School is also a good example that you can be inspired (by)."

Alessandro Bianciardi is an environmental engineer and co-founder of a start-up called Planet, which focuses on "biologically-inspired design for sustainable innovation."

Speaking to CNBC, he said biomimicry could help us to develop products that were more efficient.

"Not only products themselves, but the way we produce them and the way, also, we dispose or we reuse or we upcycle them," he said.

"We have, for example, smart systems to manage factories which (have) copied algorithms from swarm intelligence, so the same intelligence that is used by ants and bees."

Bianciardi went on to note that biomimicry could also help improve renewable energy technologies, giving the example of a more efficient wind turbine which emulates the fins of whales.
