The Crow and the Pitcher

Coming upon a pitcher of water left in a garden, the crow tries to drink from it, but there is only a little water left at the bottom, and his beak can’t reach it. Having thought for a while, the crow came up with a the solution, dropping in pebbles until the water level rose enough for him to drink. An Aesop Fable

Modern researchers have repeated this classic story in an experiment, with a slight twist. Instead of dehydrating the bird they presented it with a tasty worm floating in the water. 
The rooks that Emery and Bird(!) used in their experiment replicated the fable almost to a fault. They thought about it for a while, sizing up the problem and using the pebbles to make the water rise.
In fact they went one better, rather than picking random pebbles they chose them for size and went for the most efficient solution. "It's as if they were estimating the number of stones they needed right from the start,"

Emery and Bird also reflect on the similarity in intelligence between crows and primates, a group for which it is generally excepted that they are highly intelligent
Our data also provide further evidence for the idea of convergent cognitive evolution in these two distantly related groups. This is particularly interesting because the brains of birds and mammals are structurally very different.

Money grabbing, fake-friendly place. Little solidarity unless you pay premium. The teachers and facilities are clean and professional, but lessons are boring. Overall bad feeling. Also consider that the founder of this Bikram franchise Bikram Choudhury is a rapist and makes copyright claims on a tradition that is thousands of years old. Consider whether this is an institution that you wish to support.

Place lacks in charm. Steak was tasty. Waiter forgot my friend's order and was rude about it.

The people here are SO ridiculously friendly and at the same time not pushy, they let you do your own thing. Good vibes all over. Place itself is small but cozy, beds are comfortable. WiFi slow but reliable. Strongly recommended.

Expensive, limited assortment. At least it's open on Sunday. Nice music. Nice interior. Free Wi-Fi.
