"Historically, Ilha de Luanda - a sandspit off the shore of the Angolan capital of Luanda - was a fisherman's village.

Now it's the centre of the city's thriving art scene; artists there are encouraged to move away from traditional depictions of African society."

"Those records now form an incredibly valuable dataset that just keeps appreciating. Jim Patton, director emeritus of the Museum, and a new team of research biologists have been hitting the fields of California to replicate Grinnell’s earlier study of the “faunal conditions” of the state.

"But the fact is quadruped leg-motion isn’t intuitive: When you close your eyes and visualize it, it makes more sense for the legs to alternate steps left and right, much like the screwed-up skeleton above. What we see in our mind’s eye doesn’t match what we actually see in the world around us — so we ignore the evidence in front of our eyes. It’s kind of like how Aristotle maintained that men had more teeth than women because it made more sense to him, and never bothered to actually check inside an actual woman’s mouth."
