Adélie adults make their chicks chase them for food after returning from the sea, Cape Crozier, Antarctica. The chase is to bring their chicks away from the large creches in the colony and deter other greedy chicks from collecting food from penguins that are not their parents! Penguins don't often manage to raise both of their pair of chicks to fledging - the weaker chick struggles to win the race to get a meal.

Seems appropriate to Hallowe’en… everybody guarding their candy haul.

Antidote 22 October 2011

Harry Belafonte and Martin Luther King Jr from the site Madman posted.

And! as antidote to what I call, ‘Three Gorges Dam’ Martin.  That travesty on the Mall. 

Plus every time over the years I have wanted to post or refer to the phrase about “joining a burning house”, when I google pretty much all I find is the many references Belafonte has made to that particular truth over the years.

Not a lot of interest in that hard whallop of truth.

Apparently Kathi Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb were in Seattle today for their hour of the Today Show… and Occupy Seattle decided to occupy the back ground crowd…

hmm I just heard that Occupy Oakland has been served with an eviction notice… they can gather in the day but they are evicted from staying overnight.  We shall see….
