Smarter than a first-grader? Crows can perform as well as 7- to 10-year-olds on cause-and-effect water displacement tasks
In Aesop's fable about the crow and the pitcher, a thirsty bird happens upon a vessel of water, but when he tries to drink from it, he finds the water level out of his reach. Not strong enough to knock over the pitcher, the bird drops pebbles into it -- one at a time -- until the water level rises enough for him to drink his fill. New research demonstrates the birds' intellectual prowess may be more fact than fiction.

Mary Queen of Scots Is Deposed (1567)

Mary Stuart was Queen of Scotland from 1542 to 1567. She was forced to abdicate the throne after her husband, Lord Darnley, was murdered and she was implicated in the plot. Mary then fled to England, where she faced a murder inquiry and became a prisoner of the English government. After conspiracies to put her on the throne of England were uncovered, she was tried for treason and ultimately beheaded. Some say her executioners asked for her forgiveness. What is she said to have replied? Discuss

Simón Bolívar (1783)

Bolívar was a South American revolutionary leader whose actions earned him the title of "El Libertador." He defeated the Spanish in 1819, was made president of Greater Colombia—which comprised modern Colombia, Panama, Venezuela, and Ecuador—and helped liberate Peru and Bolivia. He declared himself dictator in hopes of unifying the region but was less successful at ruling countries than at liberating them, and he resigned in 1830, dying shortly thereafter. Why was Bolívar's body exhumed in 2010? Discuss

The Lincoln Cent

When the Lincoln one-cent coin made its initial appearance in 1909, it marked a radical departure from the accepted styling of US coins. No regularly circulating US coin had ever featured a portrait of a real person before, but public sentiment stemming from the 100th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth was strong enough to outweigh tradition. Sculptor Victor David Brenner was invited to participate in the formulation of the new design when which president chose him for the commission? Discuss

Blood Type

Human blood is classified according to the presence or absence of specific markers, called antigens, on the surface of red blood cells. The most commonly encountered blood group system is the ABO system, which classifies blood based on the presence or absence of two antigens, A and B. There are four blood types in this grouping, A, B, AB, and O. Type AB indicates the presence of both antigens and O the absence of both. What do the symbols + and – represent in the classification of blood?

The Hanging Gardens of Babylon

The Hanging Gardens were one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. According to legend, Babylonian King Nebuchadnezzar II built the gardens around 600 BCE to soothe his wife, who was homesick for her mountainous homeland. Though extensively documented by ancient historians, no extant Babylonian texts mention the gardens, and there is little physical evidence of their existence. Alternative theories suggest that the gardens were built by the Assyrian king Sennacherib near what modern city?
