In the months before filming Forrest Gump, Tom Hanks tried developing a speaking style for the role. But when he met Michael Conor Humphries, the actor playing young Forest Hanks through that style out the window, Humphrey spoke with a wonderfully unique drawl infused with the innocence of youth. That thought Hanks is how Forrest Gump would talk. Bonobos share 98.7% of their DNA with humans. That's more than any other species, including chimps, and you can see these similarities in their behavior. Bonobos are the most bipedal of the great apes. Walking on their hind legs up to 25% of the time. They're disposition is eerily human as well, particularly in the way they create social bonds. You've made up your mind. This is the weekend when you'll finally clean your house. But where to begin? Right? You could go from room to room, but that's not the most efficient way of doing things. Instead, pick a single task and do that around the entire house. First task. Throw away anything you don't need, things like papers, magazines and so on. An estimated 10% of living creatures reside in the rainforest, but Even for those creatures who don't live there, the rainforest is essential for their survival. That's because of the critical role that rain forests play in maintaining our global ecosystem, absorbing massive amounts of greenhouse gases that stabilize our climate.
