was an American zoologist who undertook an extensive study of gorillagroups over a period of 18 years. She studied them daily in the mountain forests of Rwanda, initially encouraged to work there by famousanthropologist Louis Leakey. Her 1983 book, Gorillas in the Mist, combines her scientific study of the mountain gorilla at Karisoke Research Centerwith her own personal story. Fossey was murdered in 1985; the case remains open.
Called one of the foremost primatologists in the world while she was alive, Fossey, along with Jane Goodall and Birutė Galdikas, were the so-calledTrimates, a group of three prominent researchers on primates (Fossey on gorillas; Goodall on chimpanzees; and Galdikas on orangutans) sent by Leakey to study great apes in their natural environments.

Apple app stores 16 most expensive apps
Paid apps may be on the decline, but a small percentage of mobile users are willing to fork out for high quality content, and Apple's app store still contains a selection of offerings for really big spenders.The Apple Store is the largest app store in the world, with more than 900,000 apps in total, consisting of both free and paid apps. Although 90 percent of iOS apps are now free, according to app analytics provider Flurry, some are expensive beyond imagination.
The highest price that any developer can charge for an app on the iOS App Store is $999.99 (£638). When the App Store first opened, a number of novelty apps were launched aimed at people with more money than sense. The most notable example was I Am Rich - an iPhone app that did nothing except proclaim the user's affluence.
These days, however, the $999.99 club is made up primarily of apps with legitimate purposes, and mobile blog Top Apps has put together a list of the the 16 most expensive apps in the App Store.
Only four developers charge the top price of $999.99. One of these isVIP Black, which claims to give owners “VIP treatment - extra-special experiences like complimentary upgrades, surprise gifts, welcome packages, exclusive rates, priority access, and other unique privileges - across iVIP Ltd’s global range of luxury partners and services.”
As if paying nearly $1,000 for the app wasn't enough, VIP Black also requires buyers to prove that their income is above £1 million.
Other members of the top four include BarMax CA, an app to help law students pass the bar exam, and Agro, which is used by farmers to keep track of their crops. Meanwhile, MobiGage NDI is aimed at helping manufacturers put together part orders.
The remaining 12 apps decrease rapidly in cost, (and some would say value), with the last on the list costing just $49.99. The full list is available below.
Warning: some of these applications may be scams.

14 Most Popular Free iPhone Apps Of 2013
Apple has announced the most popular apps for iPhone and iPad for 2013.
Apple divided the apps by free and paid. Here's a look at the most popular free iPhone apps of the year.
CONTINUE READING THIS POST TO SEE THE 14 MOST POPULART FREE IPHONE AND IPAD APPS OF 2013.
14. Facebook Messenger
Facebook messenger was spun off from the main app. It lets users chat without opening Facebook. You can also send stickers and photos.
13. Subway Surfers
Subway Surfers lets you navigate the treacherous terrain of various international cities transit systems while collecting keys to earn prizes.
On top of its IPO, Twitter has launched a series of updates for the mobile app this year. Twitters app has a deeper search which helps TV fans find shows that are trending or important people nearby. Twitter enhanced its messaging function to compete directly with Facebook. Ultimately, Twitter wanted its app to became an important tool for finding information and chatting with other members of the community.
11. 4 Pics 1 Word
4 Pics 1 Word is self explanatory. Players need to associate four pictures and type one word. Simplistic games like this typically take off in the App Store. Its a perfect time waster.
Finding the flashlight app in the top 15 free apps was a little surprising. Apples new iOS 7 update for iPhone has a built-in flashlight feature. But that didn stop people from downloading this self-explanatory tool.
9. Despicable Me: Minion Rush
The best part of the "Despicable Me" films are the minions. Audiences love the misadventures of these little troublemakers, so it makes sense why this game has been so popular. The game is simple. Control the Minions and have them race through Grus lab and other levels to get the best score. Plus, devoted fans of the movie won be able to resist dressing up the characters as Santa.
Available: iPhone and iPad
8. Pandora Radio
When Apple announced iTunes Radio over the summer, critics went to Twitter to mourn the anticipated death of Pandora Radio. It turns out they were mistaken. While the streaming service lost 2 million users in October according to The Daily Beast, its overall subscriber base reached 72.7 million that same month. Pandoras decision to lift a 40 hour listening cap per month for free users could have contributed to this success as well.
Instagram just introduced a new direct messaging feature that may have boosted its rankings. However, Instagram Direct has gotten criticism that it basically imitates Snapchat. While the video feature may not have been as popular as they may have hoped, Instagram is still a beloved service. No one is going to be able to resist uploading photos and altering their filters.
The disappearing photo messaging app gained a slew of new tools this year while users found a number of secret features. Snapchat incorporated "Stories" into the app, which essentially created timelines of collected snaps from a 24 hour period. Secret filters like drawing with a white crayon were found over the summer and added a new level of functionality for a basic service.
5. Google Maps
Googles acquisition of social mapping app Waze allowed for more traffic alerts to be installed on the travel app. It created a powerful social GPS that made it an essential travel app. Earlier this week, the Google Maps iOS app installed a Google Now like feature providing users with the ability to view flight and hotel reservations straight from the program.
Twitters video app Vine was one of the big breakout hits of the year. The app lets you share six-second videos that continuously loop.
3. Temple Run 2
Temple Run 2 arrived in the App Store early this year and was downloaded 20 million times within the first four days. The second version of the app added new courses and introduced a female character.
Nothing beats Youtube. The app still reigns supreme for watching videos. The iPhone and iPad versions recieved small updates this year including video quality adjustments and accessibility improvements for Wi-Fi connections.
1. Candy Crush Saga
After launching in November 2012, Candy Crush Saga has been downloaded over 500 million times and played over 150 billion times, according to USA Today. The app has attracted a large following due to its constant updates and continuous powerups added to the in-game store. The developers have filed for an IPO for 2014, which means that the game has a high chance of domination for next year too.
But still, we all know Platform has unstoppable capabilities and crazy user's so the best app distribution on iTunes store is never going to end.There are many other App's but they cannot be mention all at a single poor blog. but one thing i can assure you for now is that i'm going to update my list with the apple's popular app launches by the time when they get big popular.
You can leave any queries about any of the regarding topic and i'll try my best to response you with what makes you satisfy.
