Late night mews, March-mystical Felines... the Kougaress is definitely enjoying the past few days of warm weather... what a relief from the frigid cold temps... and the rising moon has been most splendid.
So, the disappointing saga continues. It's been a week now, and the crummy crumbum player at Coast to Coast am still won't do anything but buffer uselessly. Heck-yowl, it's like pulling teeth to even get the Coast pages to load. Whereas before, the Kougaress didn't have these 'loading' problems, and she was happy listening with her Windows player... now, it's just a damn nightmare... and no one at Coast seems to give one damn about this Big Cat's predicament... yeah, obviously, paying to listen and being a 'coast insider' doesn't count in their book.
Okay, darling kittens, keep the faith with each other. And get those claws ready just in case there's trouble. And remember, this Big Cat loves ya!

A hiss is a hiss is a hiss, you’d think. Jamie Robineau, who loved and lived with a snake shifter, knew better. His man Lamar had enough different hisses to fill up a pickle barrel. There was that angry hiss of his that could steam off wallpaper, the staccato frustrated hisses he shot out when he was at work and the words weren’t coming, the high-pitched one that passed for a laugh, the quick whistly one when he was scared or upset, and that long, low one that signaled satisfaction after they made love. Right now he was using the laugh hiss, but with a nasty edge in it. Jamie decided somebody somewhere was in for a mess of trouble.
He strolled into the kitchen. “Mornin’, honey. Up to something?”

Of Mice & Men & Gene Research
Monday, March 2, 2015
More than 5 million years ago, the evolutionary path of humans split from that of other primates. And now – after a mere 25 years of intensive research – scientists in Dresden, Germany have identified the gene responsible for creating this divergence and leading the human brain to become the most complex structure in the known Universe.
The gene, which is known as ARHGAP11B, is a modified version of a common DNA strand that is found in yeast as well as mice. The modification is evidently responsible for the proliferation of neurons in the neocortex.
Wieland Huttner, director of the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden, led the research and told reporters, “Our ultimate goal has always been to identify the changes in the genome that were responsible for us humans having larger brains than other primates.”

Human Beings – 2.0
Thursday, March 5, 2015
Many people believe that an evolutionary upgrade in human cognitive abilities is evident in many members of the youngest generation. All you have to do is go to YouTube and search for Child Prodigies to see examples of very young children and adolescents doing extraordinary things in the arts and sciences as well as in business. Whether you choose to label them as ‘Indigos,’ ‘Crystal’ or ‘Rainbow’ children – the proliferation of ‘Baby Mozarts,’ ‘Baby Einsteins’ and maybe even ‘Baby Buffets’ is evident. But is there any science to substantiate the obvious?
In fact, there is. BBC News wrote an article on the subject with the headline, “Are humans getting cleverer.” In it, they report on research conducted by Peera Wongupparaj, Veena Kumari and Robin Morris at Kings College London...
...The problem of unrecognized genius is a clarion call for those who seek to protect their brilliant young children from public education. Private and home schooling – led by highly caring, educated teachers and parents – is much more likely to recognize and cater to individual rates of development and eccentric modes of learning.
The murkier aspects of the Common Core approach to education is more likely to homogenize uniqueness rather than to cultivate it. What if many children diagnosed with ADD were actually born with a Pentium chip into a DOS environment?

Even in very small amounts, ingestion of menadione on a daily basis over a dog’s or cat’s lifetime is cause for concern. Menadione can be found in all types of pet food, including commercial raw diets, so it’s important for pet guardians to check labels carefully for the presence of this synthetic nutrient.
