Message 1: Signing chimp ad

Subject: Signing chimp ad


There's an Earthlink TV ad (I saw it last night during
"ER") with a signing chimp. A woman sits opposite the
chimp, talking and signing simultaneously: "Jojo
hungry? Jojo want banana?"

Jojo then signs, while the woman interprets: "Jojo
want ticket back to Uganda."

Jojo screeches with joy.

I don't know ASL, so I can't verify the signing.

Subject: A Review of Lakoff and Nunez on ABCNEWS Website

A Review of 'Where Mathematics Comes From' by George Lakoff and Rafael
Nunez appeared this week in the SciTech section of the ABCNEWS.com
website at:
http://abcnews.go.com/sections/scitech//WhosCounting/whoscounting.html

The review contrasts the the content of the book with folk views of
mathematics as encountered in the recent film 'A Beautiful Mind'.
