Scientists Dressed Horses Like Zebras To Figure Out Why They Have Stripes (slashdot)

Why do zebras have stripes? From a report: Evolutionary biologists have proposed many possible theories, such as camouflage or vision aids for recognizing individual zebras. But in recent years, pest control has emerged as the leading explanation for zebra stripes. Researchers led by Tim Caro, an evolutionary ecologist at UC Davis, set out to test this idea in the field. The results, published Wednesday in PLOS ONE, reveal that stripes are a powerful deterrent to horse flies, a common nuisance t...

Big West basketball: The key to Cal State Fullerton’s mid-season turnaround

Don’t look now, but the Cal State Fullerton men’s basketball team has slowly been making progress up the Big West standings.

The run has lifted the Titans into a tie for second place with UC Santa Barbara at 6-3, two games behind first-place UC Irvine. With the Big West tournament now just a month away, it’s a good time for the Titans to find their pace as a team. ...

Big West: CSUN ready for test against second-place UCSB; Ron Freeman leaves Long Beach State

Wednesday’s road game against UC Santa Barbara will be a benchmark of how much CSUN has grown since the start of the season. In the early portions of the year, the young Matadors were precocious, unable to find ways to win closely contested games. But now CSUN has turned a corner and is 4-3 in Big West Conference play. But, as head coach Mark Gottfried points out, those four wins have all come against teams behind the Matadors in the conference standings – Long Beach State, UC Riverside and Cal ...

Big West: UC Irvine ready for week that will challenge its status atop conference standings

Through three weeks of Big West play, UC Irvine is in an enviable position in first place in the conference at 5-1. But the Anteaters are set to face one of the toughest weeks of their league schedule. On Thursday, UC Irvine will travel to face UC Santa Barbara, second place in the Big West and the only team in the conference with a better scoring defense than the Anteaters. Then Saturday, UCI has a rematch at Long Beach State, the one team to beat the Anteaters in Big West play. But if one thin...

Big West basketball: Long Beach State preaching improvement over wins

Long Beach State suffered its first Big West loss of the season Saturday, falling in overtime to rival Cal State Fullerton. Still, it was the end of what head coach Dan Monson considered a good two weeks for the Beach. LBSU went 2-1 to start conference play, and the coach didn’t want to see his players discouraged after a tough loss. Especially when results won’t really matter until March, when the Big West Tournament takes place at the Honda Center in Anaheim. “It’s a long ways to go. We’re thr...

Big West basketball: UC Riverside’s David Patrick learning through trial and error as first-time head coach

UC Riverside is undergoing what you might call a transition season. At 6-12 overall and 0-2 in Big West Conference play, the Highlanders aren’t turning many heads. But it’s Riverside’s first season under head coach David Patrick, who was hired following a two-year stint as an assistant at TCU and four years at LSU. So the Highlanders are going through some growing pains, learning what the coach expects from them as he learns what their strengths and weaknesses as a roster are. In his 14 years as...

Big West basketball: UC Irvine enters conference play with confidence

After two months of nonconference play, with some teams going through grueling schedules, Big West play starts this week. UC Irvine enters with a bit of a chip on its shoulder. After winning regular-season titles in three of the previous four seasons, the Anteaters finished tied for second last season and lost to Cal State Fullerton in the Big West tournament final, just missing a ticket to March Madness. Still, no one has lost much confidence in UC Irvine, the preseason pick to win the Big West...
