"In Zemo's case, he really is kind of an inverted Bucky. I felt like that's really consistent with how the character's been shown. The character has always sort of sought Steve's approval even when he's trying to kill him. There's kind of an obsessive quality to Zemo when it comes to both Steve and his father. To me, it says that there's something besides hatred here, that there's a desire to be understood by somebody, a desire to connect with somebody." -- Nick Spencer

1_Crías de gacela Mhorr en la Sabana africana de BIOPARC Valencia - marzo 2017

The entrance of spring has brought the births of many animals at BIOPARC Valencia, and among them is the Dama Gazelle.

In 2014, three females and a young male arrived at BIOPARC Valencia with the aim of creating a breeding group. The park recently welcomed the birth of two calves and expects the arrival of a third calf any day now. This was the "premiere" of the park’s male as a father, and the new calves offer hope for the survival of this beautiful species.

The Dama Gazelle (Nanger dama), also known as the Addra Gazelle or Mhorr Gazelle, is a species native to Africa in the Sahara desert and the Sahel.

This Gazelle has been classified as “Critically Endangered” on the IUCN Red List. It has disappeared from most of its former range due to overhunting and habitat loss, and natural populations only remain in Chad, Mali, and Niger. Its habitat includes grassland, shrubland, semi-deserts, open savanna and mountain plateaus. Their diets includes grasses, leaves (especially Acacia leaves), shoots, and fruit.

Does anyone know what search terms I can use to find the sort of outdoor rug/mat that I can just hose off when it's dirty, and can be left outside in sun, rain, and whatnot? "Outdoor rug" keeps getting me indoor/outdoor nicely woven rugs that I'd hesitate to hose down, when what I want is, I think, some sort of large plastic-ish mat that looks vaguely like a rug. The main purpose being mostly to protect the feet from deck splinters.

Context: after six years in this house we've finally splurged on patio furniture and therefore might actually start going outside occasionally. Naturally we've done so at the time of year when patio furniture is the most expensive.

The first chapter is available to read in its entirety for free on Kodansha's website, but here's a look at most of it here if you can't look at their reader.

Also, warning for violence.

The Ring-tailed Lemur habitat at Zoo Vienna Schönbrunn just got a lot livelier with the birth of twins on March 18.

Mom has her hands full nursing her two tiny babies, but she is doing well and gets extra help from other females in the group. Twins are not uncommon in Ring-tailed Lemurs.

For the first few days of life, the babies spent most of their time nursing or sleeping as they clung to mom’s belly.  Newborn Lemurs are born with the ability to grip mom’s fur tightly so they can hang on as she climbs through the trees. After a few weeks, the babies will climb onto mom’s back and start to view their surroundings.  By one month of age, the babies will start to nibble on fruits and vegetables.

Ring-tailed Lemurs are one of about 100 species of Lemurs, all of which are found only on the African island of Madagascar.  More than two thirds of the species are Endangered or Critically Endangered according to the International Union for Conservation of Nature. 

A dramatic loss of forest habitat in Madagascar is blamed for the rapid decline in Lemur numbers.  More than 90% of Madagascar’s original forest cover has been lost, mainly due to the demand for lumber, firewood, and charcoal by a growing human population.

One of the biggest differences that the IDW Jem series has done is change the LOOK of the characters, not just updating them but varying the bodyshapes significantly, and none moreso than that of Stormer.

Misfits 2 000.jpg

The original series, designed as it was to sell toys, used the generic bodytype of the doll line. It varied the charatcers, but everyone had the same shape. (One character, who wouldn't have had a doll, was Techrat, was originally intended to be deliberately androgynous, but ended up being definitely male).

The new series has given us Rubenesque Stormer, a more pear-shaped Shana, and a definitely buff Roxy, and it's just been accepted from the get go. How realistic that is, is another story, and this issue looks into it from Stormer's POV

Warning: This issue contains body shaming and fatphobia.

Here's another example of why I think Paul Jenkins is one of the most underrated Spidey writers around.
