Lots of people have strong ~opinions~ on how long it should take to get over an ex. Sex and the City's Charlotte York says it takes half as long as a relationship lasted to truly move on after a breakup. When Jordin Sparks and her ex-boyfriend Jason Derulo split, she gave herself a timeline of exactly three weeks to get over it, according to People. (And she says that worked for her!)Of course, the reality is that there is no one timeline for how long it takes to stop being hung up on someone. One reason it's so tough? That relationship you just lost was probably a key part of your identity, says Gary Lewandowski, Ph.D., a psychology professor at Monmouth University who delivered the TED Talk, "Breakups Don’t Have to Leave You Broken." So it's not like you're going to go back to feeling totally you sans that relationship overnight.If you're interested in moving on ASAP (yes, please), there are some tips that can help you get over an ex. And in the meantime, take solace in the … [Read more...] about How Long Does It Really Take To Get Over An Ex?

So, I recently returned from a brief sojourn in Libya. The trip was led by Richard Moody, best known for his work on Cretaceous sea turtles; I was also accompanied by palaeornithologist Gareth Dyke and by a group of people interested in the country's geology. Libya - officially, the Great Socialist People's Libyan Arab Jamahiriya - is huge: it covers nearly 2 million square kilometres and is the fourth largest African county. However, 90% of the country is desert, and the population is only about 5.7 million (of which nearly 2 million live in Tripoli, the capital). It's a land of spectacular sweeping landscapes, enormous vistas, rocky hillsides, wadis and deserts. The landscape isn't all that different from the wilds of Morocco - the only other north African country I've visited - but the towns have a totally different feel, as Libya lacks the long tourist tradition of that country. Visitors thus get none of the constant hassling they get in places like Morocco. While the country runs … [Read more...] about The Tet Zoo tour of Libya (part I)
Welcome to part III of the vesper bat series though, as we'll see, the bats I'm covering here are not really vesper bat at all (anymore, and in the strictest sense of the term 'vesper bat'). They are the extremely strange, highly widespread long-winged bats, long-fingered bats or bent-winged bats (Miniopterus). Of these vernacular names, I prefer 'bent-winged bats'. As you can see from the simplified cladogram shown below, they're consistently found as the sister-group to virtually all other lineages conventionally included within Vespertilionidae [adjacent photo, from wikipedia, shows Common bent-winged bat M. schreibersii]. If you've been reading the previous episodes, you'll already be familiar with the basics of vesper bat diversity and phylogeny: if not, part I is here, and part II here. So, on to bent-winged bats. These short-snouted, thick-furred bats occur from southern Europe, across Africa and Madagascar, throughout Asia, and to Australia, Vanuatu and New Caledonia. Or, as … [Read more...] about Bent-winged bats: wide ranges, very weird wings (vesper bats part III)
