Golden snub-nosed monkeys in China have wet nurses:disney bands cost study

Irish Folk Music Feat - Caoineadh Songs Fans of the hit tv series, "Duck Dynasty," can be on the lookout for their first musical release. "Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas" will be their upcoming Christmas album to be released by Universal Nashville on October 29, 2013. Next up nature decided it too was a Lefty, because here comes that bitch, Katrina. The wind and rain did little damage and the bullet was dodged. Oil platforms were not wrecked beyond repair. The port facilities were not rendered destroyed, but that bitch Katrina had an ace up her sleeve. Once you have an idea of how much space you require, you can go about choosing the right size. It is generally helpful to have a per person estimation of space in square feet. This can help you work out how much space you will need depending on the number of people expected. The space required per person, for a buffet-event wristbands is likely to be smaller than that needed for a seated event. The next band I spoke with was Company. Company is a self-described indie rock sounding band. The band members are now living in Charleston, South Carolina. Used to playing empty bar rooms, Company is excited to be playing at the SXSW festival this year. Summary: With a grand total of 42 acts and counting, Mile High festival wristbands is going to be a tough act to follow. With two hometown bands in the line-up, 3OH!3 and The Fray, you will be hard pressed to find another festival swelling with pride. Dick"s Sporting Goods Park should accommodate festival goers quite easily, providing open space and lush grass. Think Glastonbury, U.K. During this phase, you should decide on the number of participants that you will be comfortable hosting. Are you visualizing a small group of less than 20 people? Or do you see yourself talking to a larger sport wristbands group perhaps in the hundreds? Bandslam: Not Yet Rated for some thematic elements and mild language. 111 mins. Vanessa Hudgens steps out of the shadow of High School Musical but not too far. An upstart band, led by a talented singer-songwriter (Aly Michalka) develops a sound of its own and is poised for success. As disaster strikes, the band must decide whether to give up or fight for what they believe in. Tip: Make sure you pick up a map even if you know your way around the park. You"ll need it for the unlimited cocoa and chocolate chip cookie stands located throughout the park!

WASHINGTON -- Chinese scientists have found that baby golden snub-nosed monkeys have "wet nurses," an activity seen for the first time in an Old World nonhuman primate.

Nearly 90 percent of golden snub-nosed monkey infants evaluated in a five-year field study were nursed by females other than their biological mothers, according to a paper published on Wednesday in the journal Science Advances.

The researchers found that 40 out of 46 infants suckled from one or more females that were not their mother, predominantly seen during their first three months.

Four of the six infants who did not receive nursing from another female died during winter, while only six of the 40 infants who were fed by "wet nurses" died, according to the study.

The study"s co-author Xiang Zuofu with China"s Central South University of Forestry and Technology told Xinhua that, since breastfeeding is energy-consuming, a majority of animal mothers are unwilling to do so and among primates, only prosimians and New World monkeys nurse infants that are not their children.

The cost of helping others are particularly high for monkeys such as the golden snub-nosed monkey that live in high-elevation temperate forests with extremely cold, five-month-long winters but those mutually beneficial behavior is believed to enhance infant survival and reduce postnatal reproductive costs incurred by the infant"s mother, according to Xiang.

The study also showed that the allomaternal nursing activities occurred in a tolerant kin-based support network where those breast-feeding mothers are relatives.

Those collaborative activities are necessary in the early evolutionary age of human beings, so the study can provide a new perspective to human evolution study, according to Xiang.
