In 2011 Sy Montgomery wrote a feature for Orion magazine entitled ´Deep Intellect´ about her friendship with a sensitive, sweet-natured octopus named Athena and the grief she felt at her death. It went viral, indicating the widespread fascination with these mysterious, almost alien-like creatures. Since then Sy has practised true immersion journalism, from New England aquarium tanks to the reefs of French Polynesia and the Gulf of Mexico, pursuing these wild, solitary shape-shifters. Octopuses have varied personalities and intelligence they show in myriad ways: endless trickery to escape enclosures and get food; jetting water playfully to bounce objects like balls; and evading caretakers by using a scoop net as a trampoline and running around the floor on eight arms. But with a beak like a parrot, venom like a snake, and a tongue covered with teeth, how can such a beingknowanything? And what sort of thoughts could it think? The intelligence of dogs, birds, and chimpanzees was only recently accepted by scientists, who now are establishing the intelligence of the octopus, watching them solve problems and deciphering the meaning of their colour-changing camouflage techniques. Montgomery chronicles this growing appreciation of the octopus, but also tells a love story. By turns funny, entertaining, touching and profound, The Soul of an Octopus reveals what octopuses can teach us about consciousness and the meeting of two very different minds.
The Perfect Aquarium:The Complete Guide to Setting Up and Maintaining an Aquarium Hamlyn Jeremy Gay
Today´s show starts with a look into the exotic world of underwater sex - between octopuses. The octopus is a solitary creature until it´s time to mate. A Scientific American blog article reveals what really happens when the creatures need to get down. In a Seattle aquarium, a pair was joined together in a very public fashion with onlookers observing 16 arms and 4,000 suckers as the couple entwined. After four-plus hours, the octopuses were released back into Puget Sound to lay eggs in the wild, and then, sadly, each animal - as is the standard octopus destiny - died soon after mating. What a love story! Next, Susie profiles author Hanne Blank´s new audiobooks: Virgin: The Untouched History, Straight: The Surprisingly Short History of Heterosexuality, and Big, Big Love: A Sex and Relationships Guide for People of Size (and Those Who Love Them). Susie talks about Blank´s unique approach to writing how-to sex books. And we´ll hear an audio sample with narrator Johanna Taylor from Big, Big Love that deals with the myths associated with people of size. Hint: size doesn´t stop many people from having great sex! Then, it´s the ´´Try This at Home´´ mailbag. A female listener writes in about a problem with her babysitter: ´´After a night out with my husband, when returning home, we found our babysitter in the middle of the act, rolling on the floor in the kitchen with a teenage boy. I´m not a prude, but yikes!´´ Have a question? You can call Susie´s hotline at 831-480-5110.

In this hour, philosopher David Chalmers is famous for outlining the ´´hard problem of consciousness.´´ He says the materialist framework of science will never be able to explain subjective experience - our thoughts and feelings, the expereince of joy or sorrow, self-awareness. Next, neuroscientist David Eagleman says most of the brain´s real action happens below the level of the conscious mind. He tells Anne Strainchamps that the brain can be described as ´´a team of rivals,´´ with different mental functions competing against each other.Then, the laws of physics and biology can explain just about everything about the world we live in, but consciousness is immaterial. So how does something as physical - as wet and gooshy - as the brain produce something as insubstantial as thought? Steve Paulson reports on the conflicting viewpoints of various scientists and philosophers.After that, no creature is more mysterious and amazing than the octopus. Science writer Sy Montgomery discovered this first-hand when she met Athena, an octopus at the New England Aquarium. Following that, philosopher Alva Noe says it´s a mistake to regard consciousness as strictly a product of our brain. He says consciousness is something we do; it springs from our body´s interactin with the world around us.And finally, pianist Vijay Iyer is one of the most original jazz musicians of his generation. He also has a Ph.D. in music cognition and the rare ability to describe the interplay between music and the brain. [Broadcast Date: November 7, 2012] 1. Language: English.

Fizzlebert Stump lives in a circus. His mum´s a clown, his best friend is a bearded boy, and he sticks his head in a lion´s mouth every night. Other than that, he´s pretty normal. When Fish the sea lion goes missing Fizzlebert tracks down the runaway beast to the Aquarium, with its piratical owner Admiral Spratt-Haddock, invisible octopus, and colour-coded fish. But the Aquarium has problems of its own. Fish (not Fish the sea lion, fish. Keep up.) are going missing, and the Admiral blames the circus. Can Fizzlebert solve the mystery, avoid an over-enthusiastic crocodile, and find his friend? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Daniel Hill.

The aim of this open access book is to facilitate the identification and description of the different organs as well as pathogens and diseases affecting the most representative species of cephalopods focussed on Sepia officinalis, Loligo vulgaris and Octopus vulgaris . These species are valuable ´morphotype´ models and belong to the taxonomic groups Sepioidea, Myopsida and Octopoda, which include most of the species with a high market value and aquaculture potential. The study is based on photographs at macroscopic and histological level in order to illustrate the role of the most important pathogens and related diseases from the view of a pathological diagnosis. The reader is able to familiarize with functional anatomy, necropsy and general histology of adults and paralarvae, as well as with the identification of different pathogens and pathologies. This work is thus an invaluable guide for the diagnosis of cephalopod diseases. Besides including pathogens for non-European cephalopod species, it also provides a useful contribution encouraging marine pathologists, parasitologists, veterinarians and those involved in fishery sanitary assessments, aquarium maintenance and aquaculture practices aiming to increase their knowledge about the pathology of cephalopods.
