Patty the Miraculous Capuchin Monkey Celebrates 37th Birthday With a Grand Party at the Alpha Genesis Primate Center

YEMASSEE, S.C. - June 2, 2020 - (

Marshmallow treats, baked apples, blueberry ice pops, and many other delicious foods made for a grand celebration to mark an occasion that might very well put Patty the capuchin monkey in the record books, as the celebrated primate recently turned 37 years young at the Alpha Genesis Primate Center, located in Yemassee, South Carolina.

"Patty is one of the oldest monkeys in the world today. I am nearly 60 years old myself, and I still remember that bright summer morning in 1983 when Patty was born. Ronald Reagan was President, and Return of the Jedi topped the box office. I have known Patty throughout her whole life. She has always been an extremely sweet and highly intelligent primate. She still loves listening to the birds singing in the morning, and she still believes the Rolling Stones are the greatest rock and roll band of all time. She especially enjoys the song 'Jumping Jack Flash', which makes her dance and move a lot like Mick Jagger, only a bit more gracefully," said Alpha Genesis CEO Greg Westergaard.

The Alpha Genesis staff marked the important occasion with an abundance of specially prepared foods from the Alpha Genesis kitchen. Patty celebrated her birthday with her caretakers and 20 or so of her closest capuchin friends. From all accounts, the furry primates enjoyed the celebration, as did the attending humans who love and care for them. Westergaard attributes Patty's good health and longevity to the care she receives at Alpha Genesis and to her kind disposition and even temperament.

"The Alpha Genesis staff are fantastic. It is simply amazing how much love and concern they show for the animals, and Patty is a very sweet loving monkey who easily makes friends."

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Jul 16, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

Muslim hajj pilgrims ascend Mount Arafat for day of worship

Jul 16, 2020

MOUNT ARAFAT, Saudi Arabia — More than 2 million Muslims are gathered at the sacred hill of Mount Arafat in Saudi Arabia for an intense day of worship and reflection on what's considered the climax of the Islamic hajj pilgrimage. Some had tears streaming down their faces as the men, wearing simple white garments, and women raised their hands in worship on the slopes of the rocky hill. Many walked through the pre-dawn darkness early Saturday to the hill where the Prophet Muhammad delivered his final sermon some 1,400 years ago, calling for equality and unity among Muslims. One of...

Saudi changes allow women to travel without male consent

Jul 16, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Saudi Arabia published new laws early Friday that loosen restrictions on women by allowing any citizen to apply for a passport and travel freely, ending a long-standing guardianship policy that gave men control over women. The changes are a potential game-changer for Saudi women's rights in the kingdom. The legal system has long been criticized because it treated women as minors throughout their adult lives, requiring they have a man's consent to obtain a passport or travel abroad. Often a woman's male guardian is her father or husband, and in some cases a woman's own...

Egypt demands Christie's halt auction of King Tut statue

Jul 16, 2020

CAIRO — Egypt has tried to halt the auction of a 3,000-year-old stone sculpture of the famed boy pharaoh Tutankhamun at Christie's in London, while the auction house said its sale was legal. The statue — a brown quartzite head depicting King Tut — is scheduled to be auctioned off in July, and could generate more than $5 million, according to Christie's. The artifact features King Tut's full mouth with slightly drooping lower lips and almond-shaped eyes. For many, King Tut is the ultimate symbol of ancient Egypt's glory. Howard Carter discovered the pharaoh's nearly intact tomb in 1922 in...
