    #29 @Claire L Cardwell whoa! I didn't mention which animals "I liked best" from the photos (because the whole idea of even thinking/feeling that we have a right to make such judgments seems somehow "off" to me )...having said that, I've felt like felines "understand" me ...or understand "something" that I do...but I have no idea what the "it" is...that probably sounds incoherent...I just reread it ...it sound incoherent to me too, haha --but I don't how else to express the "whatever it is"...ANYWAY...
    ...the point I wanted to make, was that the photographs of the leopard and cheetah and the lion cubs were adorable!
    I feel really sad for tigers (and cheetahs too) the best part was knowing that at least some of them have a place like that --to run around (I read somewhere that a tiger needs like 20 square kilometers just to feel like it's in a one room apartment...and if that's true...there aren't many "apartments" left.
    Down (up) here the LSU mascot is a tiger ...so everything around here is "tiger this and tiger that"...and the worst part is that they insist on having a live "mascot" and bringing him to the 100,000+ seat stadium (I feel nauseous just writing that)...the latest one just died of cancer (only 7 years old I think)...and the Board of Regents still is insisting on obtaining another...I don't even like thinking about it...when my kids were little, I would take them to see him... a couple of times I looked in his eyes and started crying; I don't think they noticed....but it's still hard for me to ...You know tigers are different; well you know --they're kind of like house cats, the way they look at you and you can tell (or I can) that they want to play or something.
    Anyway, these last two posts of photographs are really, realiy something magical!

    #5 @Claire L Cardwell you are most welcome...and someday I really do hope to visit; it's funny this post reminded me of a (I know there will be a collective groan --but...its not about the source of the following info --it's just about the info itself) documentary/nature programme I once saw on "Shark Week".

    I'm not sure if it was South Africa or not --I have a feeling/almost memory that it was.

    Anyway...it was this place where Great White Sharks (fairly close to shore) literally dive down really deep...and then, from the depths, spot their prey (I think they were really large birds ...like Albatrosses or Pelican's, etc.).

    Then, the actual attack is they "shoot upwards" at incredible speed, and literally fly out of the water --reaching great heights (I just can't get the image out of my mind of a 20 foot long Great White that is like two or three telephone poles high in the air...the filmmakers having to shoot the footage by lying on their backs in the boat and pointing the cameras straight up to the sky), and snatching their prey in mid-flight.

    Anyway, if that is a real thing in South Africa (and can be observed from a "safeiish" distance, lol)...I would want to experience that live; it just seems like one of those rare, surreally extreme spectacles for which video footage is insufficient!

    The fault line is probably to blame - but the main fault lies with the mine owners here in SA. Mines are being allowed to fill with acid mine water and this water is not only destablising the rock around it, it has begun to affect our ground water as well. It is also starting to affect structures in town - two years ago a friend of mine worked at Standard Bank at the main building in Simmonds Street in town. Anyway it had 4 basements. D was totally flooded, C was also flooded and in heavy rain level B would also start to flood.... God alone knows what all this acid is doing to the foundations and column grid systems in this building....

    #3 Someone once told me there were over 5000 timber wolves in Algonquin Park alone. On numerous treks there to photograph them, I only ever saw one clearly. She marched right into my camp and sat down watching me. We shared a garlic sausage.

    I heard many others. I saw flashes of grey. I saw rustling of the underbrush. If a wolf doesn't want you to know he's there, you won't.

    In August, they come down to the lower part of the Park to bear young. They will answer humans who howl.

    Wolves make polite, quiet neighbors. They are not as fearsome as TV and film make them out to be. Unless of course you happen to be a sheep, elk, caribou, cow, deer, or any other natural prey animal to them. Still, I wouldn't get between a Mother and her cubs.

    Come to think of it, I wouldn't do that with a human either. Dangerous.

    Until the 1900s the Iberian wolf inhabited the majority of the Iberian Peninsula. However, Spain's Francoist government started an extermination campaign during the 1950s and 1960s that wiped out the animals from all of Spain except the northwestern part of the country, where there is still a sizable population in Sierra de la Culebra. Similar policies in Portugal almost led to the extinction of the animal south of the Douro river (there are still some surviving packs). Some authors claim that the South-Eastern Spanish wolf, last sighted in Murcia in the 1930s, was a different subspecies called Canis lupus deitanus. It was even smaller and more reddish in color, without dark spots. Both subspecies were nominated by รngel Cabrera in 1908.

    Some Spanish naturalists and conservationists like Fรฉlix Rodrรญguez de la Fuente called for the end of the hunting and the protection of the animal. Today, the hunting of wolves is banned in Portugal but allowed in some parts of Spain. The 2003 census estimated the total Iberian population to be 2,000 wolves.

    Canada is home to about 52,000โ€“60,000 wolves, whose legal status varies according to province and territory. First Nations residents may hunt wolves without restriction, and some provinces require licenses for residents to hunt wolves while others do not. In Alberta, wolves on private land may be baited and hunted by the landowner without requiring a license, and in some areas, wolf hunting bounty programs exist. Large-scale wolf population control through poisoning, trapping and aerial hunting is also presently conducted by government-mandated programs in order to support populations of endangered prey species such as woodland caribou.

    The pulverised pylons, Todd, were up in North Queensland, where Lady Deborah unleashed her full wrath on our infrastructure. This is where she came ashore as a Category 4 Cyclone (the scale we use in Oz is from 1 to 5, lowest to highest wind speed). Our damage further south, here in Brisbane and in the northern NSW areas, however, was mostly due to consequential flooding from unprecedented rainfall (up to 800mm in 24 hours at the last count) as, still in a 'hissy fit' she flicked her now 'tropical low' tail with a most unladylike flourish, before dispersing out to sea again. Unlike Debbie Harry (formerly of Blondie), this Debbie made no attempt to woo us with her pouty lips. There was no introductory courting and no enticing dinner date. Instead she came, she conquered, then she blew our socks off like a jilted jillaroo on a bucking bronco.

    This madam was no lady, but she made a lasting impression on the mainland.

The duality you and @Sara Jacobovici have discussed is the challenge to purpose. The ants do not engage in such duality. They have a singularity of purpose. The ant serves the community and the community serves the ant.

    If i am building my brand and you are building yours, can a higher purpose really be served?

    The rules would have to establish that my brand is based on the communities success. Most animals require a habitat and the basic elements of existence. Humans have the same but we also have a higher level of social need. This social need requires us to exist cohesively within a community, yet personal brands are sometimes in direct conflict with this need. When a community loses touch with its purpose as a whole then our personal brands become the filler. Creating a self fulfilling prophecy of social deprivation. This can be seen in history many times over. However there is a self correcting mechanism that always comes along that brings the community back to its purpose. One would hope that this will be civil discourse and intellect. In history it typically involved major conflict.

    Interesting discussion.

    #53 @Harvey Lloyd- your comment stirred my mind to the extent I couldn't respond to it in a timely manner.
    You reminded me of a presentation that I wrote almost three years back titled "The Three Simple Rules ARe Everywhere":
    https://www.slideshare.net/hudali15/the-three-simple-rules-everywhere
    I wonder if you have two minutes to read it because I give many examples of the three simple rules that lead to complexity. Meanwhile I am still thinking about the three simple rules that would lead to generating a binding or gluing purpose. I promise to comment again, but I need to firm up my mind first. May be you could help me.

    @Ali Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee ants are an amazing social group when you watch them. Humans cant get three people in a room to agree and commit to something 100%. Yet ants, in the hundreds, operate without verbal discussion and attack a goal with their whole self.

    I drew a point of reference from your post. The point is at that transaction where choice has to be made. Where do i put my grain of sand in ant world, or how would you like for me to interpret the report in human world.

    Ants seem to have some very clear yet complex understanding of what to do in each situation and execute. The task from the single ant perspective is seen as pretty elementary, but from a social structure is quite complex. The rules are simple in execution but there is no feedback loop within the choice. Meaning the choice once executed is not compared to another ant.

    What does this tell us as individuals when we face a choice of execution? Our choices seem to be challenged by variables that have no bearing on the impending goal or milestone.

    In making choices at the transaction level within humans what three rules would be necessary to cut through the variables that don't apply? Can it be that simple? Keeping in mind, there are two things going on, a person speaking and a person hearing. Both or all would need to adhere to the three rules.

    Challenging stuff.

    #51 ANts are successful and we may learn from their successes @Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMA. I could write a buzz on the successful ideas that humans implemented by learning from ants. Yes, I concur fully with your comment.

    Humans, say scientists, are poor multi-taskers. And managing our time is critical to improving not only our lives but productivity. That said, we can certainly learn much from ants - who clearly are a highly highly productive group. And interesting to know ants can choose work they enjoy. Perhaps we should be more like ants Ali!.

    Ants are amazing at working together, @Ali Anani, but we'll never know if any ant stood out or distinguished itself in any form of sand collection. As long as ants are willing to accept the anthill as it exists, there never will be a distinguishable ant. Maybe nature is telling us something.
