The fight against rhino poaching must begin before poachers enter the parks, reserves and sanctuaries where rhinos live. The odds are much more in the poachers' favor once they've breached a protected area's perimeter.

The Kindness Of Strangers: Bonobos Are Just As Capable Of Empathy As We Are

The Kindness Of Strangers: Bonobos Are Just As Capable Of Empathy As We Are | Protect our oceans | Scoop.it
Empathy, according to Merriam-Webster, is "the feeling that you understand and share another person's experiences and emotions." Though empathy is something which is (generally) shared among humans, there has been some contention over whether or not other animals share this trait, and to what extent. Recently, a study published in PeerJ explored the empathy similarities between humans and Bonobo monkeys.Since cognitive empathy is far from quantitative, the researchers studied the most simplistic form of an emotional contagion: the yawn.

And in some cases it's an active sadism of getting pleasure from inflicting pain," said Pratt.She said it's important to teach empathy at a young age.If a child killed or tortured an animal, whether it's a frog or dog, Pratt said help teach them it's wrong. One way could be exposing them to nature and showing them the value of life Elise Brown,

New transparent solar cells can be used on windows, smartphone screens

New transparent solar cells can be used on windows, smartphone screens | Protect our oceans | Scoop.it
Named a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and developed by researchers in Michigan State University in the US, this material can be used to cover anything that has a flat, clear surface. Transparent solar cell technology has been attempted before, but the energy the cells produced was poor and the materials they were made out of were highly coloured."No one wants to sit behind coloured glass,” said one of the researchers behind the technology, chemical engineer Richard Lunt, in a press release. "It makes for a very colourful environment, like working in a disco. We take an approach where we actually make the luminescent active layer itself transparent.”The new transparent solar cells are made from tiny organic molecules that absorb invisible wavelengths of sunlight such as ultraviolet and near infrared light. This invisble light is then guided to the edge of the solar panel, where thin strips of photovoltaic solar cells pick it up and convert it into energy. "Because the materials do not absorb or emit light in the visible spectrum, they look exceptionally transparent to the human eye," Lunt said.Not only are they transparent, these solar cells are also flexible. The researchers are now working on scaling the technology up for commercial applications such as window coverings for residential and office buildings, smartphone and tablet screens, electronic signs, and car windows."It opens a lot of area to deploy solar energy in a non-intrusive way,” said Lunt. "It can be used on tall buildings with lots of windows or any kind of mobile device that demands high aesthetic quality like a phone or e-reader. Ultimately we want to make solar harvesting surfaces that you do not even know are there."Get your Free Business Plan Template here: http://bit.ly/1aKy7km

Human and Ape Empathy One and the Same

Human and Ape Empathy One and the Same | Protect our oceans | Scoop.it
Empathy is universal across different species, new research suggests. After comparing the "yawn contagion" effect between humans and bonobos, researchers found that having a relationship carries significantly greater weight in stirring empathy than belonging to the same species."Emotional contagion" is the most basic form of empathy, the ability to experience feelings of another individual. "Emotional contagion" happens when feelings disclosed by facial expressions (for example sorrow, pain, happiness or tiredness) are passed from an "emitting face" to a "receiving face". Mirroring the sender's facial expression will trigger similar emotion in the recipient. The findings are published in the peer-reviewed journal PeerJ.

Do all animals have empathy? | Discover Wildlife

Do all animals have empathy? | Discover Wildlife | Protect our oceans | Scoop.it
But animals that are not so conspicuously brainy, from chickens to ants, show distinct physiological responses when members of their own species are in distress.This might be hard to ascribe to anything other than hard-wired, instinctive behaviour. If that is indeed the case, then it could be that what we describe as empathy, even in humans, is simply the kind of behaviour that one expects natural selection to favour in social animals.
