Here, directors Alistair Fothergill and Kevin Scholey go to the Alaskan wilderness to follow a mama brown bear coming out of hibernation with her two cubs. The narrator, John C. Reilly, dubs the mother Sky and the cubs Scout and Amber, as the film shows us the struggles Sky has finding plentiful food so she can produce milk for the cub...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

It began a 20-year artistic relationship in which RDT acquired seven of Gotheiner’s works. And it would be the first and last time in Gotheiner’s 30-year career that he would be asked to choreograph about a geographic place. “How beautiful to actually respond with dance to the imagery and the relationship we have ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

The morning after a big event is when fools rush in and declare that someone’s victory or defeat in a single battle has “changed everything forever.” The morning after the morning after, the laws of gravity start to apply themselves; things often don’t look as good or as bad as you thought. And that brings me to Vladimir Putin...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

If you dive into that literature, you learn pretty quickly that our love lives are biased by all sorts of deep unconscious processes. When men become fathers, their testosterone levels drop, thus reducing their sex drive. There’s some evidence that it’s the smell of their own infants (but not other people’s infants) that sets this off. Women, meanwhile, have different tastes at different times in their cycles.
