Radio Philosophy History Environment/Nature July 17, Monday, 9:05pm. 99.1 FM. CBC Radio 1 - Ideas - The Post-Modern Chimpanzee's Guide to Parenting. Quote: "Evolutionary anthropologist and University of Toronto PhD student Iulia Badescu spent 11 months camped out in a Ugandan jungle to observe baby chimpanzees and their parents -- and babysitters! She was surprised to find there's a much wider range of childcare styles than have previously been documented. Some chimps weaned earlier than others. Mothers took advantage of babysitting offers from other members of the community, including adult males, who might traditionally be considered a threat. Her observations shifted her gaze towards scientists themselves, and how they tend to filter what they see based on their own cultural assumptions. She turns to philosophers Nietzsche and Derrida who encourage her to examine the strengths and limitations of science, including her own research."

Walk Food August 13, Sunday, 11:45am. Free. Toronto Vegan Meetup (torontovegan) Hike: Walk the West Don River, the Bridle Path and Taylor Creek.
Quote: "We'll be on the East side of Coxwell, between Danforth and Strathmore, behind the bus shelters If the forecast calls for 40% chance or more of rain as of Friday, June 16, I will change the scheduled date. **Note: this meetup is scheduled for 11:45am. We will leave at 12:00pm. If you are late, you can try to catch up with us by following the map. The 70 bus runs from Coxwell station to O'Connor, but you'll have to get off there and chase us into the ravine if you're running that far behind. Map of the Walk Hey walkers! The summer is finally again here, and it's time to move it! For this first walk of the season, we're going to go all out! This will be a LONG walk (20km), and will last about 5 hours. For most of the time, we will be in the paths along the ravines, and so there won't be many easy opportunities for people to jump on a bus or subway. We'll start and end at Coxwell station (my hood!) There is a new store right there called Warehouse Organics that sells Miyoko Cheeze and Beyond Meat!!!! :o :o :o Bring shopping bags! But it's probably best to wait until the end of the walk to stop. It's open until 6:30 on Sundays. From Coxwell station, we'll head up Coxwell Ave, onto Coxwell Blvd, and then down into the ravine. From here, we'll sort of twist and turn until we get to Serena Gundy Park, and then head up into the York Glendon Campus and onto Lawrence. From there, we'll head east up a STEEP hill (I cannot stress the "steep" enough here) and into the Bridle Path. This is one of the most expensive postal codes in Canada, and home to Drake (if that sort of thing interests you). The homes here are absolutely extravagant, and definitely something to see, even if just to gawk at their size and splendour. We'll make a loop through the poshest of neighbourhoods before heading to Edward Gardens and then into the ravine again. At this point it's basically a loop back through to our starting point."
Start/End: Coxwell and O'Connor, 1 Coxwell Blvd, between Danforth and Strathmore.
