Conservationists Save Africa’s Lions By Getting Inside The Lion Killers’ Minds – Yahoo News

Young warriors vie for both jobs, says Dickman, because they bring status in the community and the attention of women. The one with the spear gets the added privilege of cutting off the lions paw and wearing the middle claw as an amulet. He then goes around the village collecting livestock as a reward and as one of the only available ways of building wealth. For Dickman, understanding the psychology of lion killing is a way to begin to prevent it. http://news.yahoo.com/conservationists-save-africas-lions-getting-inside-lion-killers-133321492.html

(LOW) wont make a profit until at least 2017 as annual losses at the groups home improvement business widened by 24 percent. The 49-store chain lost A$176 million ($163 million) in the year ended June and wont meet its target of 90 outlets by end-June 2016, Sydney-based Woolworths said in a regulatory statement today, adding Lowes will indefinitely defer an option to sell back its one-third stake. The Masters venture initially aimed to have 150 stores by this year. Five consecutive years of losses at the home improvement unit through 2016 will make it harder for Chief Executive Officer Grant OBrien to restore annual earnings growth of more than 10 percent, which Woolworths achieved for 11 consecutive years to 2010. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-08-12/woolworths-sees-fifth-year-of-losses-at-home-improvement.html
