If you use dial up use the lower one, for high speed use the DSL one.

I have only been able to view videos for 2 days now. For me it would not work on Dial-Up. The link would not go directly to the video. That's why you have to put "black bear research" in the box.

I hope you can see it.

In the lower right hand corner you will see 2 tv screens. Hold your mouse there and it will tell you your speed.

If you have dial up you will have wires going to your telephone and you wont be able to use your phone while you are on the computer. If you have dial up your speed may be around 40 or 50.

If your speed is in the 100+ range, you do not have dial up.

I listened to this all the way through. Good find hazelnut. I knew bears were alternate year breeders but didn't realize the gestation period was only 55 days. The collaboration with the other scientists to study osteoporosis and clinical depression was interesting.

There are several lectures in this research series that look interesting. I love bears, though. We have them in our woods at home. My sister says they follow her to the clothes line and watch her hang the clothes! There is a Momma and her cub.

Thanks for the link! Very interesting.

I was amazed how bear research regarding hibernation could eventually be used to analyze osteoporsis and depression in humans.

One behavior discussed in the interview was that bears hibernate, but are not true hibernators. They CAN be disturbed from their "sleep" in winter. I knew this from attending the course at the North American Bear Center in Ely, MN, and this explains the reason why I NEVER stuck my head into the tunnel that opened into the "lower level" of our enormous brush pile last winter.
