upon Paul and brings out agapes creativity its capacity to create togetherness and community The pestering but important gadfly Kings medium for enacting his teaching civil disobedience was also informed by the Greeks or rather one Greek in particular Three times in his 1963 "Letter from Birmingham Jail" King evokes Socrates (469-399 BC) the philosopher who famously made the public streets and squares of Athens his classroom Kings letter is addressed to fellow clergymen who had discouraged his practice of nonviolent resistance on the grounds that it was "unwise and untimely" and could incite civil disturbances In making the case for the importance of civil disobedience King introduces Socrates as one of its early practitioners: Just as Socrates felt that it was necessary to create a tension in the mind so that individuals could rise from the bondage of myths and half truths to the unfettered realm of creative analysis and objective appraisal so must we see the need for nonviolent gadflies to create the kind of tension in society that will help men rise from the dark depths of prejudice and racism to the majestic heights of understanding and brotherhood The image of a gadfly is drawn from the Apology a speech attributed to Socrates and related by his student Plato in which he responds to the charge that he is corrupting Athens young citizens with his unconventional and provocative teaching Socrates compares the lazy inert Athenian state to a tired old steed and his own interrogation and urging of Athenian citizens to the buzzing of a gadfly Like the fly he may be annoying but Socrates argued Athenian citizens needed such pestering in order to be stirred into action and improve their lives This was precisely Kings point in his letter to opponents of his methods: progress towards social justice can only be achieved through peaceful actions that annoy the status quo that is through nonviolent gadflies and the productive tension they create Persistent and irritating activism requires courage and significant risk Socrates and King alike lost their lives for their causes but both saw peaceful agitation as essential to their identity and work Applying the Classics to the 20th century And so just as the term agape was able to capture Kings concept of transcendent love in a way no English word could his evocation of Socrates the pestering yet productive gadfly could inform our understanding of the aims of civil disobedience in a uniquely memorable way In the speech "Ive Been to the Mountaintop" King passes on the fantasy of living in ancient Greece or Rome Ultimately he declares his preference for life in the "now" of 1968 But his lived engagement with the Classics bridges these eras showing his listeners and readers how classical ideas can speak to us today Timothy Joseph Associate Professor of Classics College of the Holy Cross This article was originally published on The Conversation Read the original article Contact us at editors@timecom There’s very little good news with white-nose syndrome a fungal disease spreading across the United States and Canada The fungus Geomyces destructans infects the nose and wings of bats causing them to wake up early from hibernation and often starve to death Since the syndrome was first identified among bats in New York in 2006 populations of several species in the northeast have been devastated But today researchers report online in Ecology Letters that one species of bat is reducing the risk of extinction with individual bats hibernating alone rather than in large groups "That’s really positive" says Katie Gillies of Bat Conservation International in Austin which helped fund the research In addition populations in colder drier caves are experiencing proportionally fewer cases of white-nose syndrome than those located elsewhere Yet the situation remains dire for the bats Gillies and others caution with populations greatly reduced and few tools for wildlife managers to help the bats The new study led by graduate student Kate Langwig of the University of California Santa Cruz compiled survey data on all six species of bats in the northeast from before and after the arrival of the fungus "It’s been guesswork until this study" says Paul Cryan a biologist at US Geological Survey in Fort Collins Colorado who was not involved in the research The conclusions confirmed previous impressions: Two species big brown bats (Eptesicus fuscus) and Eastern small-footed bats (Myotis leibii) are relatively unimpacted by the fungus But populations of the Indiana bat (M sodalis) already on the federal endangered species list and three other species have taken a nosedive Two of the declining species are solitary-roosting bats which would be expected to have lower rates of transmission than more gregarious bats And in fact the researchers predict that the populations of one type the tri-colored bat (Perimyotis subflavus) will eventually stabilize But the northern-long-eared bat (M septentrionalis) doesn’t appear that fortunate: Even though these animals roost alone during hibernation all 14 populations in the study disappeared within 5 years of the fungus arriving at those caves The reason isn’t known but Langwig says that the population might have shrunk to a point of no return; the few remaining bats might have been unable to find mates for example The outlook could be just as dire for gregarious bats which hibernate in cozy clumps of individuals In theory the fungus is more likely to wipe out these colonies After the first few years of the epidemic research had suggested that little brown bats (Mlucifugus) might vanish from the Northeast within 16 years But the data gathered by Langwig’s group suggest that the worst declines were over by 2009 To its surprise the team also noticed a dramatic increase in the percentages of the highly social little brown bats that hibernate alone ranging up to 75% of a colony "There’s been a real change in behavior" Langwig says The same loss of sociality is happening to a lesser extent in Indiana bats but apparently not widely enough to slow their decline The researchers also collected data on temperature and humidity within caves used by the two best-studied species: the Indiana bat and the little brown bat Populations in the colder and drier caves declined less which makes sense because most kinds of fungus do better in higher humidity To co-author Marm Kilpatrick of University of California Santa Cruz this offers hope that the driest coolest caves are a refuge from the fungus *This item has been corrected on 5 July Due to an editing error a previous version of this story mistakenly referred to Geomyces destructans as a bat species It is the fungus afflicting
