A groundbreaking scholarly publication, African Cosmos: Stellar Arts brings together exceptional works of art, dating from ancient times to the present, and essays by leading scholars and contemporary artists to consider African cultural astronomy: creativity and artistic practice in Africa as it is linked to celestial bodies and atmospheric phenomena. African concepts of the universe are intensely personal, placing human beings in relation to the earth and sky, and with the sun, moon, and stars. At the core of creation myths and the foundation of moral values, celestial bodies are often accorded sacred capacities and are part of the "cosmological map" that allows humans to chart their course through life. African Cosmos: Stellar Arts is written by Christine Mueller Kreamer, who is deputy director and chief curator at the National Museum of African Art. A graduate of Indiana University, with a PhD in African Art History and minors in anthropology and African studies, Kreamer is an expert on both traditional and contemporary African art.

If you've ever been scared by loud, unexpected noises, know that your pet is much more sensitive to them than you are. The ADAPTIL Diffuser contains D.A.P. (Dog Appeasing Pheromone) and will come to your dog's rescue. If your dog seems to cause problems and barks frequently without any apparent cause, it does not necessarily mean he is demonstrating his bravery-it could be a hint that he's fearful or anxious. The D.A.P. electric diffuser imitates the pheromone present in a mother dog's milk that is designed to appease the confused puppies. This pheromone calms and soothes the puppies, helping them adapt to new environments. Even after growing up, dogs may still experience the fear of encountering new people, places, climatic phenomena, and other unexpected situations. Fortunately, this pheromone has the same calming effect on adult dogs as it does on puppies. By mimicking the appeasement pheromone, the diffuser relieves the dogs' stress, anxiety, and fear, allowing them to relax. The diffuser calms and soothes dogs during fireworks, thunderstorms, visits by strangers, or moves to a new house or environment; it also assists puppies in adjusting to new environments. Using the D.A.P. diffuser will allow your pet and your neighbors to coexist more peacefully. Coverage Area: 500-700 sq. ft. 50-70m² One vial lasts approximately four weeks Female dogs secrete pheromones that comfort and reassure their nursing puppies. These "appeasement" pheromones have the same calming effect on adult dogs. DAP. mimics these appeasement pheromones to reduce or eliminate stress in dogs of all ages.
