Big Boy locomotive begins California farewell tour – Wire Nation/World – The Sacramento Bee

POMONA, Calif. — An enormous steam locomotive that has been entertaining train enthusiasts at a California museum for years began a trek of more than 1,200 miles on Sunday with the ultimate goal of putting the engine back on the nation\’s rails.

The 600-ton Big Boy locomotive left the Pomona fairgrounds on its way to a Union Pacific rail yard in Colton, about 60 miles away, where it will be available for two weekends of public viewing before moving on to Cheyenne, Wyo., for restoration work. The goal is to eventually get Engine 4014 back on the rails, said Union Pacific spokesman Aaron Hunt.

Dark skin and blue eyes: How Europeans once looked | News , Science | THE DAILY STAR

The DNA of a hunter-gatherer who lived in Spain some 7,000 years ago suggests that Europeans were dark-skinned until much more recently than previously thought, researchers said Sunday.

Genetic material recovered from a tooth of La Brana 1, an ancient man whose skeleton was dug up in a deep cave system in Spain in 2006, revealed a strange combination of dark skin and blue eyes, according to a study in the journal Nature.

Europeans from the Mesolithic Period between 10,000 and 5,000 years ago, when La Brana lived, were thought to have already been fair-skinned due to low ultraviolet radiation levels at these high latitudes.

\”Until now, it was assumed that light skin colour evolved quite early in Europe, (during) the Upper Palaeolithic… But this is clearly not the case,\” study co-author Carles Lalueza-Fox from Spain\’s Evolutionary Biology Institute, told AFP.

\”This individual had the African variants for the pigmentation genes.\”

These things keep me up at night. They give me a headache.

I just need sixty seconds of your time to unclog my pencil brain so that I can get some sleep.

Do you mind?

I have a few things to say. This is Mimi unplugged.

Hide your children.
