Frontiers | Human Occupation of the North American Colorado Plateau ∼37,000 Years Ago (Me: This is big!!!)

The more obvious features of the bone assemblage suggested this was a butchery site. However, six AMS 14C dates on the adult mammoth bone collagen yielded ages ranging from 38,900 to 32,300 cal BP (Table 1 and Figures 4, 5). These dates are far too old to be cultural according to prevailing archeological views (e.g., Meltzer, 2009; Waters, 2019). However, they lie within the time range hypothesized by genomic evidence, which projects a human presence in the Americas as early as 56,000 years ago (Wohns et al., 2022). The dates also suggest the lithic debris on the colluvial surface was most likely a time-averaged assemblage that accumulated long after the mammoth bones were broken and buried, leaving open the question of whether the mammoth bones reflected cultural activity. The only lithic evidence recovered from excavating the Hartley site consisted of six chert microflakes found in lower levels of the excavation. Although they preserve evidence of percussion flaking (below), taphonomic analysis of the bone assemblage and surrounding sediments soon became the primary basis for elucidating site formation.

O Fantástico exibiu ontem, 31 de junho de 2022 uma matéria sobre o tema Feminicídio. Narrou a história de Bruna, a jovem que ficou paraplégica depois da tentativa de feminicídio que sofreu por parte de seu namorado.

É notório como Brunas, Marias ( Maria da Penha), e outras vítimas sem rostos ( anônimas), quase perderam a vida por serem mulheres. Estas, ” SÃO SOBREVIVENTES DE TENTATIVA DE FEMINICÍDIO “, que hoje podem contar suas histórias de luta e superação a muitas outras mulheres que passaram e passam pelo mesmo problema que éa violência.

GOP Maryland AG Nominee: 9/11 Was An “Inside Job”

Scottie's Playtime

This is what the republican party is now.   Conspiracy nuts, Qanon followers, religious fanatics, white supremacist racist bigots, and maga cult members.   These used to be fringe candidates if they were not simply ignored outright.   Now they are supported, funded, and put on ballots.    And in a lot of places they are winning.    Scary that if elected these people will be making our laws.   Hugs

CNN reports:

The Republican Party’s nominee for Maryland attorney general hosted a series of five radio shows in 2006 devoted to arguing in support of 9/11 conspiracy theories questioning if the terror attack was the work of an “elite bureaucrat” who had demolition charges in every building in New York City.

Michael Peroutka, a candidate best known for his ties to neo-Confederate organizations, made the remarks on The American View, a radio show…

The Republican Party’s nominee for Maryland attorney general hosted a series of five radio shows in 2006 devoted to arguing in support of 9/11 conspiracy theories questioning if the terror attack was the work of an “elite bureaucrat” who had demolition charges in every building in New York City and even suggesting if those who died after a hijacked plane hit the Pentagon were killed elsewhere.

It Doesn’t Matter Much Which Fiber You Choose – Just Get More Fiber! | Duke Today

When your gut bugs are happily munching on a high-fiber diet, they produce more of the short-chain fatty acids that protect you from diseases of the gut, colorectal cancers and even obesity. And in particular, they produce more of a fatty acid called butyrate, which is fuel for your intestinal cells themselves. Butyrate has been shown to improve the gut’s resistance to pathogens, lower inflammation and create happier, healthier cells lining the host’s intestines.

Widespread Arrests Used to Intimidate the Population – Groundviews (Me: Sri Lanka – collapse of government leads to worse government – autocracy reigns – sadly0

Journalists and media personnel are a top priority in the arrests, which  are not on the basis of any illegal acts committed by media personnel; they are being targeted for providing information to the people. Thus, belonging to the free media is considered an offence when in fact the law protects the right to freedom of expression as a fundamental right recognized by the constitution. However, emergency laws are being used to override the constitution itself.

The second group that has been targeted are trade unionists and people involved in movements that protect the rights of people. The right of association is also recognized as a fundamental right in the constitution and it is necessary for the maintenance of a free and civilized society. Students are particularly targeted with several reports of arrests and detentions.
