    LUCKNOW: Rudyard Kipling's Mowgli came alive in the jungles of Katraniyaghat in Bahraich district, 200 km from Lucknow, when local policemen rescued an eight-year-old girl from a troop of monkeys recently. The cops had to face resistance from the simians before they could rescue the girl. Mowgli, the man-cub protagonist of Kipling's ‘The Jungle Book’ was reared by wolves’ pack in 'Seeonee hills', now in MP. The girl was spotted when a police party of Motinagar range in Bahariach headed by sub-inspector Suresh Yadav was on routine night patrol in the woods of Katarniyaghat. “We spotted her playing among apes....

    The banning of weapons used to shoot monkeys has led to an increase of the primates in Mount Al-Noor District, Makkah newspaper reported. «People living in Mount Al- Noor District have several time reported to the municipality that they are facing problems with monkeys,» Nasser Al-Emairy, a citizen said. “The monkeys would raid our houses and attack our children. They are disturbing our lives. They also leave waste on the streets. After several reports to the municipality, an Arab veterinarian came and assessed the situation. He wrote a report and informed us that the medicine to tranquilize the monkeys is...
  • So monkeys CAN write Shakespeare - with a little help from mind-reading technology

    It is often said that, given an infinite amount of time, monkeys hitting random keys on a typewriter will eventually type the works of Shakespeare. While it may seem far fetched, an unusual experiment has achieved the fabled task. To illustrate how paralysed people can type using a device called a ‘brain-computer interface’, scientists used monkeys to show how it can be done. Two rhesus macaque monkeys (stock picture) typed a passage from William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, as well as portions of the New York Times, at 12 words per minute.

    The Washington Post pulled a cartoon from its site on Tuesday that depicted Senator Ted Cruz's young daughters as monkeys. Mr. Cruz, a candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, angrily denounced the cartoon in a fund-raising email that sought to bring in $1 million. The illustration, by the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Ann Telnaes, was replaced late Tuesday by a note from Fred Hiatt, The Post's editorial page editor. "It's generally been the policy of our editorial section to leave children out of it," Mr. Hiatt wrote. "I failed to look at this cartoon before it was published. I understand why...

    There was surprising consensus on today's Morning Joe concerning the Washington Post cartoon that depicted Ted Cruz as an organ grinder and his youngs girls as monkeys. From Mika Brzezinski to Joe Scarborough to Harold Ford, Jr., there was universal condemnation of Ann Telnaes' foul image. Willie Geist said it best: "people look for moments of bias in the media. Here's one right here. You can't be selectively offended by cartoons. If that had been a Democrat, or God forbid the President of the United States, they would have lit the house on fire. There would have been wall-to-wall coverage...

    Yes, Caroline and Catherine, there really is a Santa Claus, but not over at the Grinch-like Washington Post It would seem that if you’re already a president, your children are off bounds to the smears of yellow journalism. But if you are only running for Republican candidacy to represent the party in an upcoming presidential race, your little ones can be depicted as ‘trained monkeys’. It’s Christmas time for children everywhere other than at the Washington Post where the seven and four year old daughters of Senator Ted Cruz were fair game for cartoonist Ann Telnaes until public disapproval stepped...

    UPDATE 12.22.15: The Washington Post removed the cartoon late Tuesday evening, and issued an apology explaining that they did not review Telnaes' work prior to publishing. "It's generally been the policy of our editorial section to leave children out of it," Post editor Fred Hiatt said in a statement. "I failed to look at this cartoon before it was published. I understand why Ann thought an exception to the policy was warranted in this case, but I do not agree."

    Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz slammed the Washington Post Tuesday for publishing a cartoon appearing to depict his children as monkeys. Ann Telnaes, a Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist, argued that because the Texas senator had used his children as “political props” in a recent Christmas parody infomercial they were “fair game.” A representative for the Post could not be reached for comment in time for publication by TheBlaze. UPDATE, 8:40 p.m. ET: The Washington Post retracted the cartoon and replaced it with an editor’s note from Fred Hiatt. It reads: It’s generally been the policy of our editorial section to...

    The average hedge fund has produced a worse investment performance in the first half of this year than a portfolio consisting of a savings account at your local bank and a random collection of stocks picked by a blindfolded monkey. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. According to the benchmark HFRX Global Hedge Fund Index, tracked by Hedge Fund Research Inc., the average hedge fund has earned its investors just 2.4% so far this year net of fees. By contrast, the average stock in the MSCI World index of the developed countries’ equity markets is up 7.7%. Hedge-fund...
  • Nobody can resist petting a litter of wriggly puppies... not even this MONKEY

    The only thing cuter than a litter of puppies may be a little monkey going gaga over a bunch of newborn pups. A video of a capuchin monkey after its introduced to a gaggle of black and white puppies that have yet to even open their eyes proves it. Like any human pet lover, the monkey immediately goes in for a big hug. He then pets the pups just like a kid who's just gotten his first dog. Minus a brief moment where the monkey appears to search one of the dog's fur for parasites, its reaction is indiscernible from...

    Scientists have discovered a new species of titi monkey in Brazil, according to a recent paper published in scientific journal Papéis Avulsos de Zoologia. Titis are new world monkeys found across South America. These tree-dwelling primates have long, soft fur and live in small family groups consisting of a monogamous pair and their offspring. Rather touchingly, they are often observed sitting or sleeping with their tails entwined. In 2011, researcher Julio César Dalponte spotted an unusual looking titi monkey on the east bank of the Roosevelt River, whose colouration did not match any known species. Intrigued, a team of...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — It took 16 years of twists and turns. Over and over, Dr. Nancy Sullivan thought she was close to an Ebola vaccine, only to see the next experiment fail. “A case of resuscitation more than once,” is how the National Institutes of Health researcher describes the journey.

    Britons are to be the first in the world to test a new vaccine against the deadly ebola virus. Altogether 60 healthy volunteers will be given the vaccine next month in a trial led by Oxford University scientists. If the vaccine performs as well in humans as in monkeys, the trial will be extended to 80 people in The Gambia and in Mali. The entire trial programme is being fast-tracked – subject to ethical approval – with the intention of using the vaccine in people at high risk in West Africa early next year. Latest figures show that more than...

    Barron's ^ | 06/20/2014 | By JACK HOUGH
    "A blindfolded monkey throwing darts at a newspaper's financial pages could select a portfolio that would do just as well as one carefully selected by experts," Burton Malkiel famously argued in his classic 1973 book, A Random Walk Down Wall Street. Malkiel may have given too little credit to monkeys. Start with the record: U.S. large-company mutual funds have routinely failed to beat the Standard & Poor's 500 index since S&P began keeping score in 2002. Over the past five years, for example, 73% of active funds have fallen short of that benchmark. Today's fund families may appear well-stocked with...

    Rep. Donna Edwards (D-MD) delivered the keynote speech yesterday at the Washington Press Club Foundation. The far left politician compared Republicans to monkeys and gave a shout out to Nancy Pelosi and “all my sisters in the libido caucus.” The Politico reported: Washingtonians sit through terrible speeches all the time: dry rules hearings, partisan floor lectures and, let’s face it, even the State of the Union some years. So it was a bad day for Rep. Donna Edwards Thursday, when Washingtonians gathered at coffee pots and in lunch rooms across town and deemed her performance at the Washington Press Club...

    I’ve traveled the country with dogs for over 20 years, so I can honestly say I have slept in some not so swift rooms and some that have been oh-so-divine. Pet friendly, however, is not always what it’s cracked up to be, and if you’ve had a less-than-stellar experience at a supposed “pet friendly” establishment, you are nodding in agreement. How many of you, when calling a hotel or facility to ask if they are pet friendly ask something like this: “Hi. Can you tell me if you allow pets?” How many of you ask, “Hello, are you pet welcoming?”...
