Robber fly - Nature photographer Thomas Shahan specializes in amazing portraits of tiny insects. It isn't easy. Shahan says that this Robber Fly (Holcocephala fusca), for instance, is "skittish" and doesn't like its picture taken.

“… 4 - Energy (again)

The natural resources of the planet are finite and will not support the continuation of what you've been doing. We've been saying this for a decade. Watch for increased science and increased funding for alternate ways of creating electricity (finally). Watch for the very companies who have the most to lose being the ones who fund it. It is the beginning of a full realization that a change of thinking is at hand. You can take things from Gaia that are energy, instead of physical resources. We speak yet again about geothermal, about tidal, about wind. Again, we plead with you not to over-engineer this. For one of the things that Human Beings do in a technological age is to over-engineer simple things. Look at nuclear - the most over-engineered and expensive steam engine in existence!

Your current ideas of capturing energy from tidal and wave motion don't have to be technical marvels. Think paddle wheel on a pier with waves, which will create energy in both directions [waves coming and going] tied to a generator that can power dozens of neighborhoods, not full cities. Think simple and decentralize the idea of utilities. The same goes for wind and geothermal. Think of utilities for groups of homes in a cluster. You won't have a grid failure if there is no grid. This is the way of the future, and you'll be more inclined to have it sooner than later if you do this, and it won't cost as much….”

Is this the worst branding ever? GoDaddy boss filmed shooting elephant before hungry villagers wearing company logo hack into the carcass

Daily Mail, by DAILY MAIL REPORTER, 31st March 2011

This is the shocking video of GoDaddy CEO Bob Parsons shooting an elephant in Zimbabwe.

In the disturbing holiday movie, internet entrepreneur Mr Parsons is seen shooting a bull elephant before having his picture taken as he perches on the carcass with a rifle in one hand and a smile on his face.

The video then cuts to the next day as hungry villagers wearing orange GoDaddy hats hack away at the dead elephant while a raucous rock soundtrack plays in the background.

Filmed: Bob Parsons smiles proudly over the corpse of the dead
bull elephant

Poor taste: Villagers are seen the next day hacking into the corpse
wearing the company logo

The shooting happened on March 8, and according to the video was meant as a gesture to help farmers who were having their crops destroyed by the marauding elephants.

As tense music plays in the background, scrolling text reads: 'For the second year in a row I spent ten days hunting problem elephant in Zimbabwe.

'Of everything I do this is the most rewarding.'

At first the team demonstrate the damage caused by the elephants.

After a few minutes the scree goes black, as the 'team' wait for the bull elephants to return to the crops.

A gun is then fired, which the film attributes to Mr Parsons.

Justified: Mr parsons said he shot the elephant because it was
eating the villagers crops

Captured: The elephant was shot by Mr parsons at night

The next day villagers are captured hacking into the carcass and carrying off the meat.

Several are wearing orange GoDaddy baseball caps.

The video has sparked angry exchanges between Mr Parsons and website

Petitioners on the site have rubbished Mr Parson's suggestion that non-lethal alternatives could be used to fend off destructive elephants such as beehives on poles or chili-infused string fences.

In response, Mr Parsons wrote on his blog that the petitioners: 'have no idea what they're talking about'. He wrote: 'The people there [Zimbabwe] have very little.

'Many die each year from starvation and one of the problems they have is the elephants, of which there are thousands and thousands, that trash many of their fields, destroying the crops.

'Should the folks at go to Zimbabwe with their bee hives and chili pepper lines, my guess is they'll return with a tusk in their ass and some very pissed off villages and farmers in their wake.'
