those living in socal eichler homes totally get the growing interest in preservi


growing interest in preserving the unique look of orange’s eichler tracts is only catching up with what longtime residents of the mid-century modern homes have known makes their neighborhoods special.orange has 350 of the iconic homes split across three neighborhoods, all developed in the early 1960s by real estate icon joseph eichler. the homes have a unique flavor both inside and out, with a tendency to cause passing drivers to slow down, take pictures and ask owners if they’re interested in selling.within the year, the city could designate the three neighborhoods as historic districts, which would protect them from demolition and limit what visual changes owners could make to the properties – just as was done several years ago to the city’s old towne. residents are also nominating the t

neighborhood spotlight: in valley glen, a modest suburb comes of age


the narrow strip of the san fernando valley that would one day become valley glen was, for much of the 1800s, part of the vast collection of wheat fields owned by the wealthy lankershim family.those fields would give rise to the small hamlet of lankershim, which would in turn grow into the tracts and commercial strips of north hollywood. that neighborhood remained virtually intact until its western third split off in the 2000s to become valley glen.decades before the split, however, the area became a major draw thanks to the film industry. studios began to migrate over the hill, with universal pictures, walt disney pictures and mack sennett among the production houses to set up shop on the north side of the hollywood hills.by the 1930s, this migration of the entertainment industry had incr

why can't monkeys talk? scientists rumble over a curious question


decades ago, while philip h. lieberman was soaking in a bathtub and listening to the radio, he heard anthropologist loren eiseley ponder an evolutionary puzzle: why couldn't monkeys talk? like us, they're social primates, intelligent and certainly not quiet. rhesus macaques grunt, coo, screech and scream. infant macaques make sounds known as geckers. despite the grunting and geckering, though, no other primates — not even the chimpanzees and bonobos, our nearest ape relatives — can make the vowel and consonant sounds we know as speech.scientists figured there were two likely sticking points. either the brain was not wired for speech in nonhuman primates, or their windpipes were shaped the wrong way.lieberman, a professor emeritus of anthropology at brown university in rhode island, got out

latest wilderness plans draw fire from new mexico ranchers


albuquerque, n.m.

jacksonville, fla.

eden prairie museum showcases aviation history year-round
