PUBLIC RADIO 89.5 HD1 – When we gaze into the eyes of a wild animal, or even a beloved pet, can we ever really know what they might be thinking? Is it naive to assume they're experiencing something close to human emotions? Or, on the contrary, is it ridiculous to assume that they AREN'T feeling something like that? In this hour of Radiolab, we explore what science can say about what goes on in the minds of animals. Guests include: a humpback whale, Paul Thoreaux, camels, Jonah Lehrer, and a bloodthirsty leopard seal.
Listen Friday evening at 8:00 on Public Radio 89.5 HD1.

Tulsa, OK – Private funding allows 5 Tulsa pools to open
TULSA, Okla. (AP) The five Tulsa city pools that are opening this summer all are being funded by private money.
As the city deals with a budget crunch, it has eliminated all public money for the pools, so parks officials had to seek funding elsewhere.
Local Parks and Recreation Director Lucy Dolman says that while the city has operated some pools with private money in the past, never before have all the Tulsa pools that were open been funded that way.
