The Atlantic recently posted an article by Alexis C. Madrigal in which he ponders the topic of Human / Dolphin communication. I have no doubt that this will eventually be possible, but will we reach this milestone in our lifetime?
According to Mr. Madrigal, a friend of a friend said that Google was working on the problem. You know how 'friend of a friend' rumors start. But if anyone had the resources to put behind such a project, Google would certainly come to mind.
"Interspecies communication is one of my all-time favorite topics."
The article includes a video of Denise Herzing speaking on the topic, 'Could we speak the language of dolphins?'

Weeki Wachee Photos
We return once again to Weeki Wachee State Park in Florida to view a collection of mermaid photographs by Annie Collinge.
The collection is brought to us in a Slate article by Jordan G. Teicher. Since 1947, the mermaids of Weeki Wachee have been entertaining mermaid fans of all ages.
Merfolk, let me introduce you to Rhinochimaeridae.
I'm sure there are a number of unicorn fans out there, but have you seen an underwater unicorn? Jesus Diaz, who we have heard from before, has the story on this unique creature from the 'infernal deeps'.
Our next story comes to us from Thailand, where the Songhkla municipality recently reminded tourists and locals alike that the Golden Mermaid Statue is not intended for prayers.
No, they're not talking about me!
"The municipality announcement said this worship was damaging the mermaid's reputation and to the intended purpose of the statue."
The mermaid statue was cast in 1966, and certainly has not been forgotten. Read the full article on the statue in the Bangkok Post.
In closing, I would like to wish all my readers a Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Hanukkah!
Best wishes and starfishes,
