Bonobo toolmaking hints glimpses of “cutting edge” stone age technology

This is really cool as human ancestors, many millions of years ago, my have started making tools in very similar fashion. Here is the Roffman et al. PNAS paper that describes the findings in detail.

Visualizing biology: from conception to birth, cell division, and more

Visualization helps in learning anything. In biology visualization has traditionally been done using pictures or posters (right).
From conception to birth. But that is so 1970s. In the technocratic future, where lullabies are delivered via iPod and iPads are norm in kindergarten, figures or posters wond do any good. Kids would hate to learn from static images….they need videos! And if you are making videos, you might as well use real data…and Alexander Tsiaras does exactly that. Using advanced technology on real pregnant women he captures images of life from conception to birth. Mes merizing!

Okay, let’s take it to a molecular level now. Let us look at structure of DNA, cell division, and molecular machinery of cell division:
