Meet Bonnie, the whistling orangutan. According to National Geographic News, she is giving evolutionary anthropologists something to talk about: the evolution of human language. NG reported on a new theory: Lead author Serge Wich of the Great Ape Trust of Iowa, said orangutans in Indonesia have been seen pretending to wash clothes. “We know they are capable of imitating these motor skills, but we never had any good indication of sounds for vocalization,” said Wich, who presented his research on December 18 during a symposium at the University of Zurich, Switzerland. The next step is to study how flexible sound-learning is in apes and whether they can adjust their sounds—pitch and intonation, for instance—depending on the context, Wich said. “Those things are very important because they give us clues to understanding the evolution of human speech,” he said.Charles Snowden of the University of Wisconsin, however, noted that Bonnie’s whistles are not as complex as those of some birds and dolphins. “Until now there has been little evidence of direct imitation of vocalizations by a primate,” Snowden said. “The really interesting question is why it is so difficult to find [more] good evidence of vocal imitation.”Everybody knows that birds evolved language from humans. That’s why they parrot us. Orangutans evolved whistling and clothes-washing from humans, too. That’s why they ape us. You’ll notice that the honorable, reliable, rational, scientific, enlightened National Geographic Society had no qualms about printing the latest Darwinian silliness. Maybe they should stick to taking photos; that’s about all they brag about these days.(Visited 17 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

Hibernian manager Neil Lennon says he’s reconsidering his managerial job after being the subject of sectarian hatred in Scottish football.Lennon got hit on the head by an object thrown from the crowd during Wednesday’s Edinburgh derby with Hearts and has claimed that he’s targeted for abuse in Scotland because he’s an Irish Catholic who became a Celtic player and manager.Lennon told Sky Sports: “I’ve thought about walking away when I was the manager of Celtic.“Again, with all the furor and the empty vessels talking after Wednesday – people spouting opinions and totally getting the wrong end of things, I may reconsider my position again.“I had a career in England unblemished by this sort of stuff. I had two years at Bolton [as manager] – again, no abuse, no attacks, no suspensions or anything like that. And as soon as I’ve come back to Scotland it’s started to rear its ugly head again.“The first day I stepped on to the pitch at Windsor Park as a Celtic player I was booed every time I touched the ball, having previously played 36 times and had nothing. But it was my association with Celtic, being high profile – there’s no question in my mind that was the reason behind it.Match Preview: Rangers vs Celtic Boro Tanchev – August 31, 2019 It is time for the first Old Firm derby of the 2019-20 campaign, as Rangers host Celtic tomorrow at 13:00 (CET).“You call it sectarianism here in Scotland, I call it racism. If a black man is abused, you are not just abusing the color of his skin, you are abusing his culture, his heritage, his background. it’s the exact same.“All I do is stand up for myself.“Every week we hear the songs at stadiums – that’s got to be stomped out. People don’t want to do it, saying we can’t do anything about it – you can, if you really want to.“I’m not the only one to suffer from sectarian abuse, plenty of people at Rangers suffer from it too and I think it’s disgusting in this day and age. It’s racism. Sometimes it’s worse here than it is back home.”
