Encounters with Companion Species: Entangling Dogs, Baboons, Philosophers, and Biologists Donna Haraway bio In the joint keynote address that bioanthropologist Barbara Smuts and I did in for the Society for Literature and Science meetings, she and I were companion species with each other, as well as with other critters, as we explored our entangled histories dating to her helping me in the mids with Primate Visionsand extending through our practices of love and knowledge with dogs. In our address in Durham, North Carolina, that November, Smuts and I explored different aspects of our joint obsession that knowledge for both life and science depends on the recognition and interconnection of subjects, not all of whom are human. Drawing from her extensive video and bioethnographic record of dogs playing with each other, Smuts explored the gestural, cognitive, affective, and communicative worlds of canines with each other, while I concentrated on dog—human worlds lived in the sport of agility and in the working lives of pastoralists.

Horus is the name of a sky god in ancient Egyptian mythology which designates primarily two deities: Horus the Elder or Horus the Greatthe last born of the first five original gods, and Horus the Younger, the son of Osiris and Isis. According to the historian Jimmy Dunn, "Horus is the most important of the avian deities" who takes on so many forms and is depicted so differently in various inscriptions that "it is nearly impossible to distinguish the 'true' Horus. Horus is mostly a general term for a great number of falcon deities" 2.
The College of the Vestals and its well-being were regarded as fundamental to the continuance and security of Rome. They cultivated the sacred fire that was not allowed to go out. The Vestals were freed of the usual social obligations to marry and bear children and took a year vow of chastity in order to devote themselves to the study and correct observance of state rituals that were forbidden to the colleges of male priests.

Strictly speaking, " Ro- man religion " would mean that animism which prevailed before the period of the Tarquin dynasty when Greek influence, streaming into Rome from Etruria on the north and Magna Graecia on the south, transformed the whole system through the introduction of imitative temples and borrowed statue types.
The survey found that people still use primate parts to treat a wide variety of ailments. In Bolivia, spider monkey parts are used to cure snake bites, spider bites, fever, coughs, colds, shoulder pain, and sleeping problems; in India, the survey found that many people believe that macaque blood is a cure for asthma. Other monkeys or lorises have their bones or skulls ground up into powder administered with tea, or have their gall bladders ingested or blood or fat used as ointments [ BBC ]. But even as primate body parts are considered valuable, local customs and beliefs can sometimes be instrumental in helping save the species, the survey found.
