One Life Stand - Sexual Cannibalism

A high resolution movie of sexual cannibalism observed in mantises. The slim male on the right approaches a female poised to attack. After capture the male's nether region remains cognizant enough to stay on target. Proud to have open access research like this published by my alma mater - SUNY Fredonia.

The Colorado

I'll be selling books for the Matter Bookstore tonight at New Belgium Brewery in Fort Collins, CO as photojournalist Peter McBride presents his view of the drying Colorado River. I was unaware until recently that the Colorado River no longer reaches the Pacific Ocean but ends in alluvial dust before it reaches Baja California. A sad tale of  mismanagement of a most precious resource.
