Subject: Travel pool report #12b: A note on Zeresenay Alemseged's name and title

The pooler just wanted to let people know that Zeresenay Alemseged Lemseged, the anthropologist who gave President Obama a tour of “Lucy” goes by Zeresenay Alemseged on his official website, and is generally referred to as Alemseged upon second reference:

Also, his CV identifies him as the senior curator of anthropology of the California Academy of Sciences.  Jon Foley is the executive director of the California Academy of Sciences, so I would caution folks against referring to him as the “head.”

Apologies for any confusion.
