Fourth week of April report.

On April 25th we had our 17th meetup of the Open Minds at the Pub. We met at Country Inn's Riverfront Room. Besides our usual discussion of current events and new things we've learned, we watched the movie A Murder of Crows. Crows are probably the smartest animals on the planet next to human beings. Crows make and shape tools, something even chimps don't do. Crows can solve 3 step problems without any training and without ever having been exposed to the problems before. They can identify human faces and remember them up to two years and pass the identification on to their children. They have over 250 different calls (language?) and tell other crows about locations to avoid. They think ahead and figure things out from scratch. A truly remarkable creature.

We've got 32 members and about 24 non-member meeting attendees.

The websites are still being updated almost daily with new news articles. Currently there 478 website pages with 612 news articles, 190 movie and course descriptions, and 142 book descriptions.

So far we've had 2,720 unique visitors to the Sioux Falls Free Thinkers website.
See the chart below showing unique visitor growth and number of pages for all websites. Unique visitor growth had reversed it's decline and was showing a strong increase but the rate of increase has been a little lower for the past two weeks.
