Craniu de Homo erectus aruncă povestea evoluției umane în dezordine


Why should everything evolve linearly?

tableta de minte

După opt ani petrecuți studiind un craniu de 1,8 milioane de ani, descoperit în Republica Georgia, oamenii de stiință au facut o descoperire care ar putea rescrie istoria evolutivă de Homo. Ar fi o poveste simplă, cu puține specii ancestrale. Devreme, diverse fosile – cele recunoscute în prezent ca provenind de la specii diferite cum ar fi Homo habilis, Homo erectus și altele – pot reprezenta de fapt variație între membrii unui singur neam, care evoluează.Cu alte cuvinte, la fel ca oamenii se uita diferit de la un altul de astăzi, așa a făcut primii hominizi arate diferit de la un altul, și neasemănare a oaselor au lăsat în urmă poate fi păcălit oamenii de știință să creadă că au venit de la specii diferite. Aceasta a fost concluzia la care a ajuns o echipa internationala de oameni de stiinta condusa de David Lordkipanidze, paleoantropolog la Muzeul National din Georgia la Tbilisi, după cum

US Long-Term Budget Outlook / Entitlement spending is growing writes CBO


And yet there is no temperance in oversight!

Job Market Monitor

U.S. debt is on an unsustainable path if current laws remain unchanged

In its 2013 Long-Term Budget Outlook, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) issued a warning that the national debt is near an all-time high and will grow to unsustainable levels. Currently, the federal debt is about 73 percent of GDP. CBO projects that debt will climb to 100 percent of GDP within 25 years. This assumes, however, that current law will not be changed and discretionary spending will decline to historically low levels. Under more pessimistic assumptions, debt could grow to 190 percent of GDP by 2038.

Under an alternative fiscal scenario, debt is projected to reach 190% of GDP in 2038

SOURCE: Data from the Congressional Budget Office, The 2013 Long-Term Budget Outlook, September 2013. Compiled by PGPF.

NOTE: The projection includes the effects of higher levels of debt on the economy. The data provided by CBO begins…

Sergei Prokofiev – Symphony No. 1 in D major “Classical”, Op. 25



Sergei Prokofiev began work on his Symphony No. 1 in D major (Op. 25) in 1916, but wrote most of it in 1917, finishing work on September 10. It is written in loose imitation of the style of Haydn (and to a lesser extent, Mozart), and is widely known as the Classical Symphony, a name given to it by the composer. It premiered on April 21, 1918 in Petrograd, conducted by Prokofiev himself, and has become one of his most popular and beloved works.

The symphony can be considered to be one of the first neoclassical compositions. However, although it was composed in an attempt to emulate the style of Joseph Haydn, it does not do so strictly, and strongly reflects modern compositional practices and Prokofiev’s own voice. The work was partly inspired by his conducting studies at the Saint Petersburg Conservatory‎, where the instructor, Nikolai Tcherepnin, taught his students about conducting Haydn, among other composers.

The symphony is in four movements:

– Allegro 0:00
Larghetto 3:50
– Gavotta: Non troppo allegro 7:45
– Finale: Molto vivace 9:22

Conductor: Kurt Masur
Orchestra: Dresdner Philharmonie

Today’s Birthday: PIERRE TRUDEAU (1919)


Pierre Trudeau (1919)

As prime minister of Canada from 1968–79 and 1980–84, Trudeau advocated a strong federal government and took a determined stand against the Quebec separatist movement. Despite his opposition to Quebec‘s independence, he supported Canadian sovereignty and secured for the country a new constitution in 1982 that precipitated its official independence from Britain. He also had French adopted as an official state language. How did Trudeau figure into an alleged plot to assassinate Fidel Castro?More… Discuss

 

This Day in the Yesteryear: WOMEN IN CANADA FINALLY RECOGNIZED AS “PERSONS” (1929)


Women in Canada Finally Recognized as “Persons” (1929)

In the early 20th century, Canadian women were often prohibited from hearing court testimony deemed inappropriate. Emily Murphy protested and became the first woman magistrate in Canada—and all of the British Empire—but her rulings were often challenged because women were not legally considered “persons.” Murphy and four other women, the “Famous Five,” submitted a petition for constitutional clarification. The subsequent Persons Case granted Canadian women personhood. What else did it establish? More…Discuss

 

FLOODGATES ON THEIR WAY TO KEEPING VENETIANS’ FEET DRY


Floodgates on Their Way to Keeping Venetians’ Feet Dry

High tides swamp Venice on an annual basis, but a barrier project 10 years in the making will hopefully protect the historic city from the worst of it. Billions have already been spent on the “Moses” project, and it is at least two years from completion. Some question whether the ambitious project will pay off, but planners are heartened by the first successful test of the system, in which four—of what will eventually be 78—large floodgates were raised from the seabed. More…Discuss

 

MAHABODHI TEMPLE


Mahabodhi Temple

Siddhartha Gautama, the man who would come to be revered as Buddha, was a prince who lived a sheltered life of luxury until he left his palace and witnessed real-world suffering. Renouncing his wealth, he became a wandering ascetic and is said to have gained enlightenment while meditating under a bodhi tree. A few hundred years later, around 250 BCE, Mahabodhi Temple, or “Great Awakening Temple,” was built on the site. Who initiated the restoration of the Bodh Gaya, India, temple in the 1880s? More… Discuss
