The rise of porn for women Chio Lunaire One of the world’s most popular pornographic websites recently revealed that women make up a quarter of its global audience. Everybody knows that, right? Sure, women like fashion and interior design. They enjoy beautiful landscapes and artworks. They gaze longingly at the posters of heartthrobs blue-tacked to their bedroom walls, as teenagers. But, when it comes to sexual images — nothing. Their ability to respond is mysteriously switched off.

Dina Theissen, 47, found a baby blue jay near a tree in her garden when he was only a few hours old. When the baby bird’s mother didn’t show up, teacher Dina, her husband Ken, 49, and their daughter Alyssa, 8, took it into their home and named him Gracie.
The family spent days nursing the chick back to health in a towel-lined shoebox, which they kept on their patio. Dina hand fed Gracie dry cat food every half an hour and later taught him how to perch by coaxing him onto branches balanced between plastic chairs. Dina Theissen found Gracie the blue jay in her garden when he was only a few hours old Image: After a month, when Gracie was confident enough to fly into the nearby trees, Dina and her family tried to release him into the wild – but he didn’t want to leave.
Two weeks later he plucked up the courage to fly the nest but the following day he popped back for a visit. He’s returned to visit every day since. Dina’s husband Ken describes the mum-of-one as a “real-life Snow White” because, just like the fairytale princess, she loves animals and they love her. Dina, of South Florida, US, said: When the bird’s mother didn’t show Dina, her husband Ken, and daughter Alyssa, took it into their home and nursed him back to health Image: Nobody wanted him to go but he was a wild bird and that’s the way it was meant to be.

March 31, , Durham University Wrens have been increasing in northern European areas where winters are becoming milder, but declining in some southern countries where summers have been getting hotter and drier. Stephen Willis, Durham University Scientists have shown for the first time that common bird populations are responding to climate change in a similar pronounced way in both Europe and the USA.
An international team of researchers led by Durham University, UK, found that populations of bird species expected to do well due to climate change had substantially outperformed those expected to do badly over a 30 year period from to It is the first real demonstration that climate is having a similar, large-scale influence on the abundance of common birds in widely separated parts of the world, the researchers said. Among the species showing pronounced effects of climate change are common woodland and garden birds such as the wren, in Europe, and the American robin in the USA.
The scientists characterised the climates favoured by different bird species to find out if recent changes in climate should have positively or negatively affected common breeding birds. Using climate records for the period to they split species into two groups based on whether climate had been getting progressively better or worse for each species. The American robin, a familiar species across much of continental USA, has declined in some southern states such as Mississippi and Louisiana, but increased in north-central states, such as the Dakotas.
The team found a clear difference in the average population trends of bird species either advantaged or disadvantaged by climate change in both continents. Populations of species predicted to have been favoured by changes in climate had, on average, substantially outperformed those expected to have been disadvantaged, the scientists said.
Populations of bee-eater and Cetti’s warbler, species with a southerly distribution in Europe, have increased in recent years, whilst more northerly distributed species such as willow tit and brambling have been declining in the same period. Differences in population trends due to changes in climate can also be seen within the same species of bird across different geographical areas.
For example, in Europe, species such as the wren have been increasing in northern areas where winters are becoming milder, but declining in some southern countries where summers have been getting hotter and drier. The UK population of the Dartford warbler, which used to be limited to Dorset, has increased eight-fold since the early s, whilst declining in Spain, as predicted from changes in weather relative to the species’ preferences.

IRAN 12—26 April Until very recently, Iran, with its incredible history and diverse avifauna, was off-limits to Western birders, but with travel restrictions now lifted, we are once again able to enjoy this fascinating country and its birds. Day 3 We will spend the whole of today exploring the mangrove forest and intertidal areas east of Minab. We may also be lucky enough to pick out an Oriental White-eye in the mangrove or an Indian Pond-heron in one of the channels; other members of the heron family, such as Great Egret, Grey Heron and Western Reef-heron, are common.

It utilises multiple sources of documentation to show his life from different perspectives; his art, my photographs and narration juxtapose with medical and police records. The work reveals a system in crisis, but at its heart is a love story and a project that values and celebrates those suffering from mental health. The work shown here is a sample of the book; to be published with Dewi Lewis.
Overview Schizophrenia is a disease that can wreck lives; it can explode whole families it did ours and leave shock waves that can be felt generations later. One in four of us will suffer from a mental health problem in the UK this year. Despite this, funding is shrinking and increasingly the police have to step in to fill the space; with sometimes absurd consequences. Justin has been sectioned three times in his life and there is no getting away from the fact that his condition is severe.
Yet hopefully as we turn the pages and get to know him better, we see there is more to Justin than his illness. He has interests, hobbies and yes, loves. Justin has been dating his girlfriend, Jackie for over 20 years; although its not always a straightforward relationship. However, inevitably by studying the problems affecting my brother, the work speaks of and draws attention to the crisis in mental health care, raising important questions about how we look after our most vulnerable citizens.
The film also explores the idea that representations of the outside can have therapeutic benefit to an audience far away from the original source as well as giving us a more intimate sense of Justin.

The birth of the first chick, from a clutch of four eggs, was confirmed yesterday as it was recorded on a new nest box webcam recently fixed at the city centre site.
The camera was fitted into the purpose-built nest in the spire earlier this year to record the activities and nesting habits of the resident peregrine couple. Anyone watching the site might have seen the brutal sight of the female peregrine eating an egg which contained a chick which had died. On the dedicated Leicester Peregrine project website a spokesperson told visitors on Saturday: Over the next couple of hours the female disposed of the chick by eating both it and most of the shell.
This is a disappointment for the birds and all our viewers. Jim Graham Today there was the one hatched chick and two remaining eggs in the nest. The website spokesperson said yesterday: Leicester Cathedral Peregrine eggs There are regular text updates on the webcam site detailing the daily behaviour of the birds, Nest boxes have been installed across the city, in locations known to be favoured by the peregrines.

The best strange but true tales that have to be read to be believed at
Bird Watching, Bird Ringing, Photography Wednesday, September 3, The Passenger Pigeon – A Review Perhaps like many people I had some vague notions about the tale of the now extinct North American Passenger Pigeon but until this week I had never read anything substantial to make the story register in my own bird brain. He magnanimously suggests that if readers desire a more technical book they should seek out earlier works of , or perhaps another published recently in early , A Feathered River Across the Sky by Joel Greenberg.
While there are nine chapters to The Passenger Pigeon, not counting the Prologue, Introduction, Appendices, Acknowledgements, Further Reading and Index, the substance of the tragedy is essentially told in just four or five of the nine chapters. The number of pigeons literally blackened the skies, their vast flocks a mile or more wide and hundreds of miles long. As the pigeons descended from on high their combined weight would send trees crashing to the ground, their all-consuming need destroying whole crop fields and orchards while leaving trails of destruction in their wake.
There was a further reduction in numbers of pigeons from habitat loss when European settlers cleared millions of acres of forest for agriculture and townships, contributing to declines between about and , and then a calamitous decline between and Throughout the years there was also hunting on a massive scale, the combined losses from the variety of pressures resulting in the previous abundance becoming unsustainable.
As early as and as a consequence of the wholesale slaughter taking place, one Benedict Revoil dared to suggest that future ornithologists would never see Passenger Pigeons. Martha, thought to be the world’s last Passenger Pigeon, died on September 1, at the Cincinnati Zoo. Is it more than ironic then that the name “passenger pigeon” derives from the French word passager, which means “to pass by” in a fleeting manner?
Should we excuse the human race from blame as they had little or no understanding of the concept of extinction? In these pages I discovered that the Passenger Pigeon was included in H. Whether from their numbers one or two became Atlantic blown casualties is debatable but highly likely. The pigeon was known by our race as O-me-me-Wog… they naturally called it a wild pigeon, as they called us wild men – Chief Simon Pokagon The Pigeons were still passing in undiminished numbers and continued to do so for three days in succession.

You can also enjoy it no matter how outgoing you are. The UK has bird life in abundance so you can even set up a bird table in your back garden, hang a few bags of seeds and nuts and see who turns up.
Read articles, watch videos and discover stories behind Museum specimens, collections, exhibitions and scientific work.
The deadline of 31st January for records of the previous year has been set to ensure that records are assessed and processed in time for inclusion in the Devon Bird Report DBR. There may not be time to enter into the database records received after January and, therefore, to publish them in the relevant DBR. This is unfortunate because it can both delay the publication of some important and useful records, and result in observers not being correctly acknowledged.
All records and names and details submitted by observers will be entered onto a secure computer system and their names will be included in the list of contributors in the DBR. Please inform the County Recorder if you have any concerns or objections in this respect. A bird record is a sighting or hearing! Although we are willing to receive all records of birds in Devon, some records are more useful than others, depending on the species.
