As long as it’s a talent and you use it for the benefit of your team, you’ll be fine, and I think he’s been doing a really good job with that.
Do you think you’ve developed that to the new level in your ability to play the game well?
It’s just a matter of being much better at getting the game to be a certain way; that’s what’s different.
We all can use some help out there – I just think the guys I’ve been playing with on this last year, all of them have been better than I, I think, had been.
Have you taken away from that any lessons from this year?
Not really. Obviously, we’re still playing to win, and you could also say there’s the pressure, but I think I’ve picked up better communication, better knowledge of what the position is.
When a guy comes into the room and he’s on your team and understands the game and is playing to help you, that’s kind of tough when you’re a rookie – you have to get the coach up to speed when you’re in the locker-room and on the court and things like that.
A study of a group of African elephants at the Kenyan Wildlife Service (KWS) is helping to answer questions that had puzzled scientists for over half a century: How are elephants used to the wild and how are elephants adapted to the changes to the nature of their habitat that is coming?
As a part of the Elephant Conservation Project at the KWS, researchers studied the behavioral, behavioural and physiological development patterns of African elephants at 12 study sites across the KWS national wildlife refuges within Africa. Researchers discovered that the elephant, by living in a natural landscape, can learn to adjust its behaviour to the environment around it.
In this study, a group of elephants from the Elephants at the Study Refuges program were collected from the KWS National Wildlife Refuges, and observed in natural grasslands in East Africa for 6 months. Some of the elephants were housed in the refuges for the first 12 months and had to learn how to live outside the refuges to survive longer in the wild.
All animals were fitted with GPS collars before arrival at the study sites to collect information on their daily activity and movement. Researchers were also able to measure the growth of elephant populations and to track the development of their elephant calves. In addition, researchers were able to track
