WELLINGTON Cheap Atlanta Hawks Jerseys , Sept. 28 (Xinhua) -- Birds might have a "general intelligence" to reason and solve problems similar to humans, according to New Zealand research out Monday.


The finding comes from a Victoria University study of 20 wild North Island robins that took part in six cognitive tasks focusing on colors, symbols, spatial memory Cheap Boston Celtics Jerseys , inhibitory control and motor skills.


"Our results suggest that if an individual did well in one test, it was likely to do well in others," researcher Dr Rachael Shaw said in a statement.


"There has been little research into whether general intelligence exists in non-humans, and our statistical analyses show that robins may have something like it and that these patterns are highly unlikely to have happened by chance."


The series of tests were designed to identify consistent measures from an individual Cheap Brooklyn Nets Jerseys , similar to an IQ test or psychometric test on humans.


The robins were motivated to do their best by teaching them to jump on a scale and eat a worm before and after each test.


"The end check is really important because if a bird is failing a task, you want to ensure that they still want food rewards," said Shaw.


She planned to investigate how individual cognitive abilities were linked to reproductive success and survival.


"I think it's intriguing that you pick up patterns in performance in birds that are similar to the patterns we see in humans -- it has the potential to tell us more about brains and how brains work," she said.


Nigeria's army said it had repelled an attack on Monday by suspected Boko Haram militants on the city at the center of the conflict with the Islamist insurgency.


Major General Nicholas Rogers Cheap Charlotte Hornets Jerseys , who heads Nigeria's military operations against Boko Haram, said that the situation in Maiduguri, in the northeast of Nigeria, was under control.


The government says it is on alert for Boko Haram attacks during the Christmas period and other festivals for Christians and Muslims.


Heavy gunfire was heard in the Molai area on the outskirts of the city on Monday evening Cheap Chicago Bulls Jerseys , prompting residents to flee the district, two residents and an officer in a local vigilante group had said.


The vigilante commander, who asked not to be identified, said his group had joined the effort to repel the attackers.


There were no immediate reports of casualties nor any immediate claim of responsibility. It was also not immediately possible to identify the target of the assault.


Boko Haram has in the past targeted places of worship during religious celebrations Cheap Cleveland Cavaliers Jerseys , including attacking churches at Christmas or mosques during Muslim festivals or prayer times.


The last major Boko Haram attack on Maiduguri, a mainly Muslim city with a Christian minority, was in June, when the group launched an assault on the eve of a visit by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.

NAIROBI Cheap Dallas Mavericks Jerseys , May 31 (Xinhua) -- Rose Wangalya was in buoyant mood on Wednesday morning when the sound of drum beats accompanied by patriotic ballads rent the air to pave way for the inaugural journey of the Standard Gauge Railway (SGR) passenger train from the port city of Mombasa to the capital Nairobi.


The mother of one savored every moment as the ultra-modern train snaked through picturesque landscapes while carrying dignitaries including President Uhuru Kenyatta who had earlier launched its maiden journey at the Mombasa terminus.


During an interview with Xinhua aboard the SGR passenger train, Wangalya said her patriotism and self esteem received new vitality thanks to the historic ride through a vessel that she had only learnt of its existence through books and movies.


"This is a historic ride that I will forever cherish and I wish my relatives and friends had accompanied me as we celebrate a monumental leap forward in this country," Wangalya said.


She is a senior nursing officer in ministry of health and together with several colleagues conducted basic medical tests to passengers inside the SGR passenger train.


Born and raised in Western Kenya, Wangalya belongs to a generation of Kenyans who have unpleasant memories of riding on old and rickety wagons while making lengthy journeys.


She revealed that on numerous occasions she endured agony and stress while riding on the old passenger train from her ancestral village in western Kenya to Mombasa to visit relatives.


"To be honest Cheap Denver Nuggets Jerseys , a journey from western Kenya to the coast using the old trains bequeathed to us by the British colonialists was not only agonizing but also sapped the last ounce of energy in me," said Wangalya.


The career nurse said she felt honored to be among few privileged Kenyans who took part in the historic ride from Mombasa to Nairobi through the SGR passenger train whose speed and comfort was profound.


"It felt like a dream come true when the train took off from the Mombasa terminus and I slowly reconciled with the new dawn of a modern railway transport in this country," Wangalya told Xinhua.


President Uhuru Kenyatta flagged off the SGR passenger train at the Mombasa terminus on Wednesday morning amid fanfare.


During a stopover at Voi Station to address a public rally, the Kenyan leader said the launch of the SGR passenger train laid the foundation for unprecedented transformation in the East Africa's largest economy.


"The SGR passenger and cargo trains will transform this country after a century of stagnation in railway development. They will lay the foundation for industrial growth through establishment of a dry port and special economic zones in the interior Cheap Detroit Pistons Jerseys ," Kenyatta remarked.


Kenyans from all walks of life and overseas friends took part in the historic SGR passenger train ride from Mombasa to Nairobi amid great excitement, rekindled patriotism and unity of purpose.
