“Beavers can help ease drought,” say scientists from University of Alberta. EurekAlert published a press release about a 54-year study that showed beaver kept open water wetlands available. They seem to even mitigate the effects of global warming. “Climate models predict the incidence of drought in parts of North America will increase in frequency and length over the next 100 years, and beaver will likely play an important role in maintaining open water and mitigating the impact, [Glynnis] Hood said.” In fact, maybe it isn’t climate that is driving everything. “Beaver are helping to keep water in areas that would otherwise be dry.” Their presence has a dramatic effect on how much open water is available in an area.

That’s what opened the West to exploration and expansion by Americans, Europeans, other nations and individual pioneers, explorers, entrepreneurs and adventurers. We need to look at beaver in a better light. They’re lovable, and they’re good for us. Time to watch the wonderful IMAX file “Beavers” again.

Fire On The Mountain Load remaining images Boulder, CO was certainly the place to be this past weekend, as Dead & Company played two massive shows at Folsom Field on both Saturday and Sunday night. With the Deadheads in town, both The Fox Theatre and Boulder Theater played host to some incredible after-shows to keep the party going. On Saturday night, Washington D.C.’s own Thievery Corporation took to the stage for a sold-out show that brought the dub and bossa nova-inspired creations of Rob Garza and Eric Hilton to the Colorado faithful.Oteil Burbridge & Marco Benevento Cover Grateful Dead, Allman Bros With Tom Hamilton [Watch]The world beats of Thievery Corporation is something that is akin to straight intoxication. Once Garza and crew step up on stage and get the music going, it is hard to not find yourself entranced in all the happenings that occur with this full ensemble and its ever-rotating cast of musicians and singers and gets into their groove. As the group made its way through a set that was chock full of hits, from the opener “Facing East” from 2002’s Richest Man in Babylon, to “Culture of Fear” ft. Mr. Lif, or “La Femme Parallel” with the sexy vocals of LouLou Ghelichkhani, from front to back there isn’t any let down with the Corporation.“Heart is the Lonely Hunter”, of which the studio version features Talking Heads great David Byrne, is always a welcome addition to the setlist, while “Warning Shots” gets the crowd into an absolute frenzy, jumping up and down and making the room shake. Being that this was a Dead & Company after-party it would only seem fitting that Thievery would pay some tribute to the band. They certainly aren’t any strangers to the material, as the group played a set of Dead songs during last year’s 50th anniversary Fare Thee Well shows in Chicago.After a great “Drum Solo”, the group went into their super mellow version of “Darkstar > Heaven’s Gonna Burn Your Eyes” with Natalia Clavier on vocals , and then brought out surprise guest bassist Oteil Burbridge of Dead & Company for an epic “Fire On The Mountain”, as TC bassist Ashish Vyas (a self-proclaimed Deadhead himself) bowed down to the former Allman Brothers Band member. Needless to say, there was quite a bit of that “Did that actually just happen?” going on inside the venue. But, to answer the question….Yes, it most certainly did happen.Ending the set with arguably their two biggest hits, “Lebanese Blonde” and “Richest Man in Babylon”, Thievery Corporation sent the crowd floating out onto 14th Street, full satiated for this evening but ready for the Sunday portion of the weekend to commence.Watch some video highlights from the night.[Photos and “Depth of My Soul”, “Holographic Universe”, “Lebanese Blonde” videos courtesy of Lacey Terrell – LTstillpix.com – “Fire On The Mountain video courtesy of Sophia Farina]Fire On The Mountain ft.
