I think that everyone should take a look at these gorgeous drawings representing Women and their accomplishements in Science, by Rachel Ignotofksy - a fantastic illustrator and graphic designer. She also has a lil Etsy shop where she sells her prints here!!!

Dian Fossey was an American zoologist, primatologist, and anthropologist who was known for her extensive study on mountain gorillas. She observed gorillas for 18 years in Rwanda and was staunchly against poaching - something that gained her many enemies. She lived among the gorillas, developed a tight bond with them, and dedicated her entire life to attempting to protect them.

Sadly, she was brutally murdered on 27 December, 1985. She was discovered in the bedroom of her cabin which was located in the Virunga Mountains in Rwanda. She had been bludgeoned and chopped to death with a machete; many believe by poachers she had been tracking. The case remains unsolved.

Slow lorises may look like big-eyed Ewoks, but their cute countenance has made these primates a target of the illegal wildlife trade. Join Mary Blair, primatologist and Director of Biodiversity Informatics Research at the Center for Biodiversity and Conservation, as she discusses how research on these endangered animals can contribute to a better understanding of wildlife trafficking, including the risk of zoonotic disease spread.

This is one of the most bizarre wildlife photos I have ever seen! This is a wild macaque riding a sika deer!

In the words of Primatologist Cédric Sueur: “My favorite behavior is that of a macaque riding on the backs of Sika deer. There is a close cooperation between macaques and deer on Yakushima island. The deer eat seeds dropped by macaques on the ground, as well as their feces. Macaques may groom the deer for parasites such as lice, which are rich in proteins. At times, macaques will climb on the back of a deer for transportation. They don’t travel the kinds of distances humans do on horseback, but the similarity is there.”

Lisa Randall, Harvard, American theoretical physicist and a leading expert on particle physics and cosmology. She works on several of the competing models of string theory in the quest to explain the fabric of the universe.    

Anna Lee Fisher is an American chemist, emergency physician, and a former NASA astronaut. Formerly married to fellow astronaut Bill Fisher, and the mother of two children, in 1984 she became the first mother in space. 

Fe del Mundo, Harvard Medical School’s first female student , was admitted because she was brilliant…and because they didn’t realize she was a woman. Del Mundo founded the first pediatric hospital in the Philippines. She attended nine years before enrollment was opened to women.     

Dame Jane Morris Goodall DBE, formerly Baroness Jane van Lawick-Goodall, is a British primatologist, ethologist, anthropologist, and UN Messenger of Peace.        

Emmeline Pankhurst was a British political activist and leader of the British suffragette movement who helped women win the right to vote.


Just a few ladies that our future generations should look up to and admire. To many find those like Kim Kardashian, Chyna Blac and others like them are heroes of today. Lets remind our children that there are MUCH more worthy women to idolize.

Fun Barbarian Idea: A prim and proper primatologist who ventures into the wild to study mountain gorillas and learn their bestial tongue. When their alpha male is slain by poachers, she dons his corpse as a pelt, channels his undying wrath, and stalks his killers on a path of vengeance.

Summary:

Louis Tomlinson is a primatologist working with the Jane Goodall Institute for primate conservation; and Harry Styles is the photojournalist sent from National Geographic to write a piece promoting awareness about the endangered species. They meet, and love is never, ever simple, as we know.

Featuring Eli the chimpanzee, bickering humans, storytelling, and five men who come to gain an understanding of what it means to be human; all stationed in the Republic of the Congo.

Notes: There is a wonderful music playlist located here, and art for the title is within the story. Both were created by the lovely @sa-voix

This was written for the @1dbigbang challenge, [Round 4], more notes on AO3.

here are some fics I’ve enjoyed and loved reading throughout the month of April and I recommend that you read them in May (if you haven’t already)!


1. Run Away Home (106k)

Louis stands, in the middle of a clearing with his hands in his pockets, and stares. This boy—God, this gorgeous, gorgeous boy. He seems so clumsy, confused at the best of times, but there’s a wisdom about him as he speaks, a maturity that belies his age.

Louis is hopelessly, wildly attracted to him.

or, louis is a successful jockey down on his luck, struggling to get his life back on track after an injury. harry has a horse, a house fit for a prince, and a broken heart. it takes them a while to figure out that they need each other.

3. These Hands Not Fit For Holding (46k)

“You should be grateful,” Harry tells him, leaning in so he’s almost whispering in Louis’ ear. Louis stands as still as a statue, trying not to react when Harry’s low voice caresses his cheek. “I’m offering you something better: a chance to join my crew. I’ll pay you to work as a carpenter on my ship.”

“I’m not a fucking pirate,” Louis says, anger flaring. He steals little trinkets occasionally, if he thinks they’ll make his sisters happy. He’s not a proper thief, or a murderer, though, and certainly not on the level of Captain Styles and his crew.

Or, Harry is the captain of a pirate ship, and Louis is an accidental stowaway.

In which Louis is a bounty hunter with a messed up past. Harry is a prince who just wants to prove himself. Niall and Zayn have too many things to figure out together. And Liam just wants to take care of his family. Things never quite go as they are planned during a simple rescue job.

At the age of twenty, Harry deals with things expected to occur at his age: student loans, instant meals, electricity bills, and the constant, incessant presence of never ending coursework. That, and the job of raising his six year old daughter and avoiding the charm of a young, successful, and very off-limits Louis Tomlinson.

Louis is just a boy with the world on his shoulders, and Harry’s just a boy from the wrong side of the galaxy. A little thing like love doesn’t stand a chance against a thousand years of war, at least until the right two come along to break the mold.

Scientists are nerds.

You can tell who’s in Puerto Rico for the primatology conference vs the folks here for some school conference.

Primatologists dress in comfy pants, sturdy shoes, and look like Dr Livingstone.

The other conference has fancy clothes, impractical heels, hair done all nice, wearing suits (and trust me it’s tough not to “help” tbem and tie a better tie knot)…

Jane Goodall and her Primates

The word primate entered English around 800 years ago from the Early French word primat meaning a high bishop, from the Latin primatem, meaning a church primate, ultimately from the Latin word primus meaning first.  It wasn’t until 1758 that Linneaus applied the term primate to the order that contains humans, gorillas, the mouse lemur, and chimpanzees. Linneaus gave the name to indicate that primates (and notably humans) stood at the first rank of mammals.  In order to understand the vast range of primate morphology, consider the three primates pictured above:  Madame Berthe’s mouse lemur, native to a small section of Madagascar, weighs only an ounce.  The Eastern Lowland Gorilla, found mostly in the Democractic Republic of the Congo can weigh as much as 440 pounds.  Humans, here represented by primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall, typically weigh between 100 and 200 pounds.  The earliest primates evolved over 55 million years ago and comprise hundreds of distinct sub-orders and families.  

Dame Jane Goodall was born in 1934 in London and as a young girl was given a stuffed animal toy of a chimpanzee, which inspired her work.  Her 55 year study of chimpanzees in Gombe Stream National Park in Tanzania not only contributed greatly to the fields of primatology, she inspired generations of scientists and changed the nature of field study.  Today she oversees the Jane Goodall Institute and has authored dozens of books.  Her latest book can be found here:
