    A white instructor at the Drug Enforcement Administration Training Academy in Virginia allegedly called a black recruit a 'monkey' and taunted trainees by making monkey noises over the loudspeaker.  The incidents are alleged to have occurred on a firing range at the DEA's training academy last year, according to an internal complaint obtained by the Associated Press. In one incident, the firing range instructor, Special Agent Jay Mortenson, allegedly called out a name that was shared by two trainees: One black and one white.  When both recruits responded, the white instructor allegedly said: 'I meant the monkey.'   The instructor also was accused of going on the loudspeaker in the tower of the outdoor firing range to taunt black trainees by making 'monkey noises'.  At least two black trainees raised their concerns to a DEA supervisor who sent them up the chain of command. Mortenson was removed from his post on the firing range but then retired some time later.  Derek Moise, a black DEA recruit who was later dismissed, said he did not hear the monkey noises for himself but...
    Catherine Wallace Hope might live in the Pacific Northwest these days, but her roots are planted deep in Colorado soil. From her ancestry to her education, it’s all Denver. And so is her novel Once Again, a science-fiction thriller released this month that takes advantage of the local landscape and asks the question What if you had one chance to save someone you lost? It's an interesting question, especially during this pandemic, but also one long asked in literature and entertainment. Works including H.G. Wells, W.W. Jacobs's "The Monkey's Paw," Stephen King's 11/22/63 even Avengers: Endgame have all given their takes on time and the possibility and price of traveling within. We caught up with Hope to talk about her novel, her family’s strong history in Denver, her ongoing work with Lighthouse Writers Workshop, and how she hopes to give something back, literary-style.

    Small fossils have been unearthed in China that belonged to a monkey about 6.4 million years ago. The remains were found a southeastern Yunan Province mine, making them the oldest to be found outside of Africa. Researchers from Penn State University have obtained a heelbone and jawbone with teeth that are believed to have been a female. Although the fossils resemble bones of modern-day monkeys living in East Asia, the team found that the ancient animals had the ability to ferment cellulose – similar to that of today's cows.

Researchers from Penn State University have obtained a heelbone and jawbone (pictured) with teeth that are believed to have been a female Nina G.

    As you hear it, a monkey has entered the room of a Malaysian man, has stolen his iPhone, has taken it to the jungle and he has taken some most curious photos. The user @Zackrydz has told the story in a Twitter thread showing photos of the moment and those that the monkey took on his adventure. Apparently he took a nap and when he woke up he couldn’t find his iPhone anywhere, but two days later he discovered this incredible story. Something yang korang takkan jumpa setiap abad.

    In Rode, India, locals were touched by the compassion of a Rhesus macaque monkey who had adopted a homeless puppy. Town locals thought it was bizarre at first, but the apparent love between the two animals was too much to deny. This just goes to show you that love knows no species. The monkey cares for the little puppy and keeps the little one close as if he were caring for his own baby. The details of how the two met are unclear, but the puppy, who was likely born on the streets, seems well taken care of. The monkey doesn’t let the puppy out of his sight for a moment and has even defended him from other street dogs. When villagers, started to leave food out for the pair, the monkey always allowed the puppy to eat first. Zee News reports: “Their undying affection gives us a valuable lesson about relationships.” It’s remarkable that a difference in species didn’t keep this monkey from becoming a responsible parent to a puppy who otherwise would not...

Meet The Monkey King: DWCS 27s Jordan Leavitt doesnt fit the usual fighter mold Jordan Leavitt is unusual – but he knows it and he doesn’t care. © File photo Jordan Leavitt A competitor on the Dana White’s Contender Series, Season 4 premiere, Leavitt (6-0) will fight for a UFC contract Tuesday. Beyond what viewers will see him do inside the cage, Leavitt’s intrigue extends beyond his competitive skills.

    The Bronx Zoo apologized this week for racist exhibits of the past. Flickr/shinyasuzuki The Bronx Zoo has apologized for racist exhibits that plague its history, including putting a young black man on display in a monkey exhibit in 1906. It also apologized for bigoted actions, attitudes, and pseudoscientific writings from the early 1900s.  The Bronx Zoo is not the only zoo that at one time hosted shockingly racist exhibits involving black men and women. "We deeply regret that many people and generations have been hurt by these actions or by our failure previously to publicly condemn and denounce them," the zoo said in a statement.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Black ministers were outraged in 1906 when the Bronx Zoo placed a young man from Central Africa in its Monkey House. Reverend James Gordon "quickly brought the disgraceful incident to an end" when he arranged for the man, Ota Benga, to stay at an orphanage in Brooklyn. Unable to return home to the Mbuti people in the present-day Democratic Republic of Congo, Benga ended up working...
    It may look like a baboon, but it is not. TO the geladas (Theropitecus gelada), a characteristic species of the highlands of Ethiopia, several things distinguish them from this other primate whose name may be somewhat better known to you. And it’s not just about the striking red color of the patches that adorn his chest, unique among the rest of primates and that has earned him the nickname “bleeding heart monkey”. In females, this region changes color and its edges fill with fluid, indicating that they are ready to mate. In dominant males, the color tends to light up even more crimson. But no; they are his teeth, with the smallest incisors and the jagged molars and of greater size than normal; their fingers, whose thumbs are longer and stronger than usual, while their indexes are significantly smaller, making geladas a unique species. And is that, in fact, do not share family ancestry with baboonsThey are the last of the lineage of the Theropitecus.
    Monkeys are exploited to collect coconuts from the top of trees. In Thailand, it is no longer men who collect coconuts from the tops of trees but from slave monkeys, reports France 3. Held on a leash, they are trained to harvest up to 1,000 coconuts per day. The practice is becoming more and more common in the country. The PETA association for the ethical treatment of animals is sounding the alarm. The monkeys are kidnapped, they are mistreated and suffer. And when they are not forced to go and harvest the fruit, they are locked up in tiny cages. They are “treated like machines and become machines”, underlines the association. The monkeys fight among themselves at the top of the trees to harvest the coconuts. PETA calls for a boycott of coconut products from Thailand. In the UK, 1,000 stores have already removed the products from their shelves. The Thai government has responded to criticism by claiming that these practices are in the minority. Thirteen producers are said to exploit monkeys.

    Kulap is a pig-tailed macaque who should be living in a huge, matriarchal family, chattering in the trees of the lush rainforests of Southern Thailand. He is intelligent and sociable, able to communicate thoughts and feelings — perhaps to his siblings and devoted mother, who should have been by his side for years, protecting and nurturing him as he played, foraged for seeds, leaves and flowers, and grew slowly into adulthood. But instead, when he was still an infant, he was snatched from the forest, chained by the neck, shoved into a cage barely big enough to hold him and transported to a specialist ‘monkey school’. There, he was trained to shimmy up 100ft-high coconut trees — always chained — and pick up to 1,000 coconuts a day. A monkey on a leash climbs a coconut tree to collect coconuts for his owner in Thailand's largely Muslim Narathiwat province PETA investigators visited eight farms where monkeys are forced to pick coconuts-including those for Thailand's major coconut milk producers, Aroy-D and Chaokoh, as well as several monkey-training facilities and...

    ART restoration is a painstaking and delicate task – but countless botched jobs have reduced beautiful religious figures into divine comedies. The latest entry into this rogues' gallery is a copy of a painting by the Spanish painter Bartolomé Esteban Murillo which suffered not one but TWO bungled restoration attempts – both with hilarious results. 11 This is how Bartolomé Esteban Murillo's Immaculate Conception painting originally lookedCredit: Coleccionista/Europa Press 11 And this is what it looked like after one of the abysmal attempts at restoring the artworkCredit: Coleccionista/Europa Press 11 A second botched attempt at restoring the painting further disfigured the Virgin MaryCredit: Coleccionista/Europa Press But the painting's owner, who is thought to have paid €1,200 (£1,084) for the job, was livid with the whacky result and demanded the restorers return his painting of the Immaculate Conception to its original state. An attempt to undo the damage distorted the Virgin Mary's face even more, leaving her comically unrecognisable from Murillo's original depiction. Unfortunately for art lovers, this professional bodger is far from alone. Here's a look at some of the...

    An alcoholic killer monkey has left one man dead and 250 injured after going on the rampage when his booze supply dried up in India. The inebriated imp, known as Kalua, was formerly the pet of an occultist who fed him hard liquor at his home in Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh. But after his owner died, the bereft animal stopped getting his supply of spirits and began prowling the streets in a furious rage. The simian targeted women and girls in particular, with dozens of children left needing plastic surgery after he ripped open their faces with his fangs. The animal has since been caught and will now be kept in captivity for the rest of its life.   It has been decided that Kalua the monkey will remain locked in a cage at Kanpur Zoo, Uttar Pradesh, for the rest of his days One of Kalua's 250 biting victims died, IANS reported. The six-year-old monkey was eventually captured and hauled into Kanpur Zoo where zoologists discovered that he was not only an alcoholic, but that he refused to eat vegetables. The scientists...
