Q&A: You needn’t know Chekhov’s ‘Seagull’ to appreciate this ‘Stupid F**king Bird’

I am a philosophy major and I got the idea from a younger sibling who has a large interest in entomology told me about the Zophobas morio. I keep the larvae in storage and I use a large plastic storage bin as their enclosure. Theoretically, with the number of worms (2,000) that I have, it should take them a year to consume 92 grams of styrofoam. I will just use the adult beetles for breeding and the only reason why adult beetles would stop breeding is that they have died. Thursday would be best for the photo. Best, Henri Emmet

"According to Mark: Part I: Blood in the Revolution." Commencing a series of plays marking Black History Month at Bates, this 10-minute reading is one of four looking at the 18th-century experiences of black New Englanders and written by Lecturer in Theater Clifford Odle. Sponsored by the Africana program. Commons, Fireplace LoungeThe title character in According to Mark “was a slave who could read and was looking for a way to free himself from an oppressive master. And he felt the Bible provided a path to murdering him as long as he didn’t spill blood.”The play is set during the planning of the murder, which also involved two other slaves, Mark’s sister Phyllis and a woman called Phoebe. In the actual event, Mark was hanged for the murder and Phyllis was burned at the stake — a punishment that in Colonial America was reserved for female slaves who kill their masters, Odle says.Cast: Charles Nero as MarkPerla Figuereo as PhyllisSam Alexander as PhoebeDawrin Silfa as Quaco
