Place names are fascinating. They tell stories about language, history, cultures, and lost landscapes and peoples. (I have a book about what the landmarks used in Anglo-Saxon charter bounds tell us about where there were wooded lands, fields, and wetlands and whether they were unmanaged or managed for themselves, for wildlife, or for human purposes.) There are mountains in the West that have names in multiple indigenous languages, some of them that reveal how they relate to the sacred. In some cases, they tell of human settlement. For instance, some, often by the most recent arrivals are transparent in meaning, as, say, Turquoise Mountain, others can have their meaning teased out with effort. Still others are opaque (and probably the oldest). Some are opaque because a word didn't survive outside the name, others because the sounds have altered too much or the elements have fused so as to make them unrecognizable. And in one case, it's so unlike anything else in the language that it's believed to have ...

The National Geographic Society has selected paleontologist Nizar Ibrahim as a 2014 Emerging Explorer:
Did you know that the "National Geographic Society" actually began as an elite club for academics and wealthy patrons interested in travel? On January 13, 1888, 33 scientists and explorers met to organize "the society" and on January 27, 1888 it was incorporated. Gardiner Greene Hubbard, (father in law to Alexander Graham Bell) became its first president in 1888 and served until 1897 when he was succeeded by Alexander Graham Bell, who was the second president of the newly formed "National Geographic Society".
Did you know that the Western Tanager was once in consideration to be Idaho's State Bird? In 1928, nothing had yet happened toward the selection of a state bird. The Bald Eagle was suggested, but public sentiment was that they didn't want to take away from the National emblem, and thus the suggestion was eliminated from the start. A questionnaire was sent to all the women's clubs across the state of Idaho to find out which bird was the most beloved. Many varieties of songbirds, the dove (presumably the Mourning Dove), game birds like the Sage Hen, were recommended, but the most popular was the blue bird (which species of blue bird was not yet specified). Meanwhile, the school children across the state were given the opportunity to vote and they too favored the blue bird. Mrs. Everett Barton (probably Loraine Selby-Barton) of Emmett, Idaho, Chairman of Conservation for the Idaho Federation of Women's Clubs, had read that the Western Tanager was discovered by Lewis and Clark in Idaho at Camp Chopunnish on J ...

God and My Eternity How blessed you are! How favored of the Lord! You've been given the secret of the path to eternal life! Nobody knows it by nature. Nobody can reason it out. Scientific inquiry will never find it. Neither NASA nor the National Geographic Society will discover it. No non-Christian religion can get you there. But the Lord has led you to the Bible, and the Bible has led you to Christ. In Scripture alone is the revealed knowledge that "those who live and believe in me will never die" (as Jesus told Martha). "You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand" (Psalm 16:11). Though your life right now may be dogged with frustrations and brokenness, when you stand before a smiling Savior, you will be filled to the brim with joy. Though now your body may ache and the struggle for survival may be hard, in heaven you will be filled with pure pleasure in God's new world. You will beam at your triumphant companions in f ...

nice National Geographic Society piece on the current KS/OK/TX panhandle drought and comparison to the 1930s
13,000 yo skeleton sheds light on Native American origins: The study, led by the Mexican government's National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) with support from the National Geographic Society, was published in the journal Science on Friday. The 15-16 year old Naia, as the scientists called her, was probably searching for water when she plunged to her death into an underground cave system during the last Ice Age. The place is ominously known as the ‘Hoyo *** – the Black Hole – and is located in the Yucatan Peninsula in southeastern Mexico. There is nearly zero topographical difference between the layout 13,000 years ago and now, only that water now dominates the entire cave network. But that is exactly what allowed the skull to be preserved in such pristine condition, and for the team to extract a lot of meaningful information from Naia’s DNA. The skull and the nearly complete skeleton lay unmoved, 40 meters below sea level, next to a variety of animals that once roamed the area .. ...

Where did white folks come from? The prestigious National Geographic Society has reported that scientists studying DNA have now confirmed that “Europeans as a people are younger than we thought.” Using the unbiased measure of genetic science they point to the same birth date for the European as did The Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Prof. Alan Cooper, director of the Australian Centre for Ancient DNA at the University of Adelaide, analyzed DNA from ancient skeletons and found that the genetic makeup of modern Europe was established just 6,500 years ago. Europeans 'only evolved 5,500 years ago after food habits changed'

This Day in Geek History: January 27 Galactica 1980 indeed 1880 Edison's incandescent light bulbThomas Edison receives a patent for “an electric lamp for giving light by incandescence” which he first invented on November 21, 1879. (US No. 223,898) Edison’s invention will have a tremendous impact on the electronics industry. In the course of developing the light bulb, one of Edison’s assistants discovered the flow of energy from one electrode to another in what will later come to be known as the “Edison effect,” which will later be fundamental principal of the electron tube, which will be, in turn, the foundation of electronics industry. To view a high resolution scan of the patent application, or to read a transcript of the patent application, visit US News online. 1888 In Washington, D.C., the National Geographic Society is founded as a non-profit organization for the purpose of disseminating geographical knowledge. 1926 This date is often incorrectly cited as the day John Logie Baird first p ...

Mt. Everest Information Below you will find some of the most commonly asked questions about Everest. Please send us an email at infowith your own questions about climbing Everest. Pumori, Everest and Lhotse at sunriseHow tall is Mt. Everest? The official altitude of the world's highest peak is 29,029 feet (8,848m). However, the National Geographic Society has determined the height to be 6 feet taller, 29,035 feet, but the Nepali government has not yet been made this new altitude official. Shifting tectonic plates continue to push Everest upward, along with the whole Himalaya mountain range, at 1.6 to 3.9 inches (4 to 10 centimeters) per year. Where is Mt. Everest? Everest is part of the Himalaya mountain range along the border of Nepal and Tibet. It is located 27° 59' North latitude, 86° 55' East longitude. Why is it called Everest? In 1841, Sir George Everest, Surveyor General of India from 1830 to 1843, first recorded the location of Everest. It was subsequently named "Peak XV". In 1865, it was rename ...

The last critical piece of hydrography in the Florida Keys involved the Gulf Stream, which ran hard and close to shore in the New Bahama Channel. Charting the reef was one thing; defining the Gulf Stream currents so that passing captains could dead reckon their way past it was another. The Survey had studied the Gulf Stream sporadically since 1845, but efforts to determine its speed and direction by comparing celestial and dead reckoning fixes, or with cans attached to a log line, were largely unsuccessful. The breakthrough came in 1884 when Lt. John Elliot Pillsbury, later a rear admiral and president of the National Geographic Society, rejoined the Survey and was given command of the steamer Blake. It had been outfitted for deep-sea dredging, and Pillsbury was able to reconfigure its hoisting engines, reels and boom to handle a 400-700 pound fisherman’s anchor bent to thousands of fathoms of steel cable so that the Blake could anchor in deepwater and strong current with relative ease. Even more import ...
In 1978, Mrs. Carter and Amy visited the National Geographic Society. See pictures from their visit:
Most happily, my personal route to the Mayan Factor blossomed through interests that were seeded by art historical studies, leading eventually to wondrous contemplations and mind-boggling insights of a galactic nature. Indeed, that the Maya are known about at all owes to their having secured an anchor in our imagination through art exhibits and archaeological text books. While the National Geographic Society has most recently brought the Maya to popular attention through full-page color glossies of their mysterious ruins and stoneworks in the Central American jungles, it should be borne in mind that modern knowledge of the Maya dates back scarcely more than 140 years. When the artistic/archaeological team of John Stephens and Frederick Catherwood published their various exquisitely illustrated books documenting their travels through the Yucatan and Central America in the 1840s, the result was nothing less than sensational. It amounted to the virtual discovery of a "lost" civilization, with all the attenda ...
Wild 4 The 80s History Lesson: Wednesday, December 4th, 2013! 1980: The bodies of four American nuns slain in El Salvador two days earlier were unearthed. Five national guardsmen were later convicted of the murders. 1982: Running back Herschel Walker of the University of Georgia received the Heisman Trophy as the nation’s finest college football player. Walker was only the seventh junior to receive the award. 1983: U.S. jet fighters struck Syrian anti-aircraft positions in Lebanon in retaliation for attacks directed at American reconnaissance planes. Navy Lt. Robert O. Goodman Jr. was shot down and captured by Syria. 1984: A five-day hijack drama began as four men seized a Kuwaiti airliner en route to Pakistan and forced it to land in Tehran. Two American passengers were killed by the hijackers. Also, the discovery of a Bronze Age shipwreck off the southern coast of Turkey was announced by the National Geographic Society. The find dated back to when King Tutankhamen (Tut, to you) ruled Egypt. 1985: Dall ...

Oct 28: Started off early, leaving Kodachrome Basin State Park for the Cottonwood Road through the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument. The weather was as predicted….some clouds, but still dry and not too cold. The Cottonwood Road follows the Cockscomb generally south through the Grand Staircase. About a third of the way down, it meets the Paria River and follows that valley down until hitting Hwy 89. The road runs through ranching country and I had to dodge a few cattle here and there. I was glad I had made sure of the weather…the road was unimproved and water would have turned it into a challenge for a serious four-wheeler in some parts. As it was, it was an easy, albeit a bit rough at times, two-wheel drive journey. I stopped at the Grosvenor Arch, named after the founder of the National Geographic Society. It was a beautiful piece of rock, the more so because it more or less stood alone, unlike the multitude of arches at Arches National Park.
3rd row center seat for Bell, by Jim Lehrer, a one-man show about Alexander Graham Bell, being premiered at National Geographic Society in DC.
Philip Charlwood and I went on a date tonight to see a one man show - Alexander Graham Bell at the National Geographic Society. It was written by Jim Lehrer of PBS. It was excellent especially if you like history or you know someone who has a creative flame. (Boy do I). It really explains how his desire to invent pushed him. It just runs through next weekend. Tickets at for reduced price - $15 for matinee and $20 for evening.

A dog with rabies. A dog stricken with paralysis during late-stage rabies in an undated photo. Photograph courtesy Barbara Andrews, CDC Ker Than for National Geographic News Published October 27, 2010 In the zombie flicks 28 Days Later and I Am Legend, an unstoppable viral plague sweeps across humanity, transforming people into mindless monsters with cannibalistic tendencies. Though dead humans can't come back to life, certain viruses can induce such aggressive, zombie-like behavior, scientists say in the new National Geographic Channel documentary The Truth Behind Zombies, premiering Saturday at 10 p.m. ET/PT. (National Geographic News is part of the National Geographic Society, which part-owns the National Geographic Channel.) For instance, rabies—a viral disease that infects the central nervous system—can drive people to be violently mad, according to Samita Andreansky, a virologist at the University of Miami's Miller School of Medicine in Florida who also appears in the documentary.

HANGING ON NOTHING "A world map published by the National Geographic Society has this notation: "Earth's mass is 6.6 sextillion tons." And what supports all that weight? NOTHING. The planet we inhabit spins on its axis at 1,000 miles per hour as it hurtles through space in its orbit around the sun. But it's easy for that to remain unnoticed in the midst of our daily concerns about health, relationships, and how to pay the bills. Job repeatedly considered God's creation in his struggle to make sense of the numbing loss of his health, his wealth, and his children. "He hangs the earth on nothing" (Job 26:7). Job marveled at the clouds which do not break under the heavy water inside them. (Job 26:14). Creation itself did not answer Job's questions, but the heavens and the earth pointed him to God the Creator, who alone could respond with help and hope. The Lord who upholds the universe by the "word of His power (Heb. 1:3; Col 1:17) IS IN CONTROL OF OUR EVERYDAY LIVES."--David McCasland, Our Daily Bread. ...

The Lost Gospel of Judas Iscariot? ( A Discovery Must Read ) Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John make up the four accepted Gospels of the Christian New Testament. Now a new gospel has been unveiled by the National Geographic Society — one that focuses on the story of Judas Iscariot. To most Christians, Judas is seen as a traitor, the disciple who betrayed Jesus to the Romans for 30 pieces of silver. But a newly restored papyrus document dating to the 2nd century AD portrays a very different man. Judas is shown as Jesus' best friend, asked by Jesus himself to betray his identity to fulfill the prophecy and liberate his soul to ascend to heaven. The story of how this gospel was found, and the international effort to authenticate, conserve, and translate it, has been chronicled in the new book by Herb Krosney called The Lost Gospel. The leather-bound papyrus codex, believed to have been translated from the original ancient Greek to the Coptic language around 300 AD, was found in the 1970s in a cave in the desert ...

PNG ROCK ART UNDER THREAT BY MINING EXPLORATION Valuable Papua New Guinea rock art is under threat from mining exploration by a company associated with the Malaysian logging giant Rimbunan Hijau. ABC Radio Australia The Rimbunan Hijau affilliate, called Pristine Number 18, has applied for an exploration licence in the Karawari region of East Sepik Province.. The area contains an enormous cave art system with stencils and images that may date back as much as 20,000 years. Nancy Sullivan is an anthropologist who’s been working with the people of the region for seven years … and with organisations like the National Geographic Society and the Guggenheim and Rockefeller Funds, to document the art. Presenter: Jemima Garrett Speaker: Nancy Sullivan, anthropologist SULLIVAN: Those caves are probably the largest cave art system in the Southern hemisphere because there are 300 plus caves and maybe as many as 300 are decorated with stencils. And they are related to caves that have already been discovered and dat ...
Suffrage march: amazing! We joined forces with the Delta Sigma Theta sorority from Howard University -- the Ohio delegation of alumni -- and were overwhelmed by their warmth and kindness. Humbling to consider the brave women who marched our path a century ago, only for many of them to be pulled off the route, beaten and jailed, all in an attempt to intimidate them into not pushing the right to vote. Thank goodness they fought on. After the march, Alexa and I warmed up at the National Press Club, then a quick break before heading to the National Geographic Society and on to meet up with friends Nicoline and Eric for some fantastic Thai food in Bethesda, Md. They graciously delivered us right to the front door of our hostel, where we're now looking forward to a good night's rest. :-)

A few people have written to us regarding the lion cub with the broken back from our film ‘The Last Lions’, and expressed feelings of distress that we, as filmmakers, didn’t intervene. We understand these feelings and I want to take this opportunity to put that scene into context and explain why we chose to let nature run its course.   To better understand the situation you first need to know that we have spent some thirty years working with lions in the wild and we fully understand them, theirs lives, and their emotions. We have made it our life's mission to save this species. In fact, we established the Big Cats Initiative with the National Geographic Society specifically to raise money to donate to projects to save big cats. To date we have raised $5 million and all of that now finances 35 projects in 13 countries. Now much of that money is raised on the back of our films. ‘The Last Lions’, the film about the lioness who lost her cub, was one of these.   As filmmakers and prod ...

Annotated Bibliography- Jessica (animal activist stakeholder) "National Geographic Society." Nat Geo Wild. N.p., n.d. Web. 16 Feb. 2013. website shows bad cases of exotic and wildlife animals being kept as pets. They go in and try to ratify the situation by talking the pet owners into giving up their animals, so the animals can go to a better home. They usually find sanctuaries for the animals to go to. They are trying to prevent animal abuse and cruelty. These animals are being kept in unfit cages, and usually aren’t being cared for properly. This is a useful source because it gives real life examples of poor pet ownership and make people aware that this is happening. It is showing a positive way of preventing animal cruelty and what needs to be done about it. People need to be made aware of what is happening because people are keeping these animals in residential areas. If these animals were to escape then they wouldn’t have much of a way of protecting themselves from these animals. These animals wo ...

REMEMBER; THE National Geographic Channel IS NOW RUPERT MURDOCH. KILLER TUNA, KILLING KENNEDY ITS ALL GOOD!! FOX AND FRIENDS AND FRIENDS AND FALSE ENEMIES AND MORE FRIENDS. Here are the words of a blog commenter "It is a very sad reality and a point of contention among many of us conservation filmmakers who use to enjoy working for Nat Geo TV. Not only do they placate to the lowest denominator, but disregard truth in story telling as well as anything to do with real science and conservation. Sadly, the channel has fallen victim to an agenda that feels no usefulness to stand by what the National Geographic Society was founded on. With shows like “wicked tuna” and others, the pubic is caught into stories that do nothing for education or to tell of the reality of our declining oceans and environment. Thank you for shedding more light on this concern and very deleterious movement for entertainment over truth."
