Her previous job had been selling BeautiControl cosmetics from her home. Marianne’s “job” for Israel Export Development Co. Gingrich’s spokesman said that since her job did not involve working with the US government, there was no conflict of interest. By amazing coincidence, Newt’s resurgence in the presidential campaign began about 10 minutes after Adelson wrote the first check. Here you have a perfect illustration of what the Citizens United campaign has meant for presidential politics. Adelson’s main political issue is his hard-right pro-Israel stance, supporting aggresive settlements, and opposing any peace deals that involve ANY concessions to the Palestinians. Sherman is on the executive committee of the lobby group AIPAC and started a free, daily right-wing newspaper in Israel. He reportedly tried to get Condoleeza Rice fired during the Bush Administration because she tried to help negotiate a peace deal with the Palestinians. Remember Newt’s puzzling comment in December that the Palestinians were an “invented people”?
Skeleton Locked in Limestone Yields Oldest Neanderthal DNA

Scientists in Ethiopia have found the world’s oldest early human skeleton. Dating back million years, it still has its ribs, vertebrae and pelvis, according to reports from Addis Ababa.
Mail By Andy Hayes, News Reporter Scientists say their understanding of hepatitis B has been “transformed” after the virus was found in a 4, year-old skeleton. Dating from the Bronze Age, it is the oldest evidence of a human virus ever found. Previously, the oldest detected virus was about years old. Most have been no more than 50 years old. Prior to the discovery, researchers were “in the dark regarding ancient sequences”. It was like “trying to study evolution without fossils”, said joint first author Dr Terry Jones from Cambridge University.
It is the same with viruses,” he said. It has also been discovered that viruses can become extinct. While HBV is thought to have infected the ancestors of modern birds during the dinosaur era, little is known about its evolution.

Exceptional preservation How fossils are formed Fossilisation only happens in the rarest of cases, when a plant or animal dies in the right circumstances. Animal corpses are usually eaten by something, or bacteria rots them away before fossilisation can occur, and even hard parts like bones and shells are eventually destroyed through erosion and corrosion.
The trick to becoming a fossil is to die in a location where your body – or bits of it – are protected from scavengers and the elements. This means getting buried in sand, soil or mud and the best place for that is on the seabed or a river bed.
Value of Antique Skeleton Keys By Claire Blackwood ; Updated April 12, Some keys dating back to the s or earlier will have more value. One problem in determining value and rarity is that so little is known about this collectible. Even those people who have been collecting for years are still learning about this niche.
Greece A skeleton has been discovered in the mysterious, richly-decorated tomb from the time of Alexander the Great, Greece’s culture ministry says. The site is believed to be the largest ancient tomb to have been discovered in Greece, and has spurred speculation as to whether the ancient conqueror or a member of his family was buried there. Officials said the remains were clearly those of “a prominent person”, with speculation rife it could be that of Roxana, Alexander’s Persian wife, his mother Olympias or one of his generals.
The dead body had been placed in a wooden coffin, which disintegrated over time. The skeletal remains were found both inside and outside the grave buried underground in the innermost chamber at the site. The skeleton will now “be studied by researchers”, the ministry said in a statement. The discovery came as archaeologists confirmed another tomb, close to where the treasure-filled burial chamber of Alexander’s father Philip II of Macedon was unearthed in , had also survived the centuries intact.
Angelique Kottaridis, who is in charge of the dig at Vergina, kilometres to the west of Amphipolis, said it also dated from Alexander’s lifetime, after breaking the news on her Facebook page Tuesday. Excavations at the site in north-eastern Greece near the city of Thessaloniki began in They captured global attention in August when archaeologists announced the discovery of vast tomb guarded by two sphinxes and circled by a metre marble wall.
The near-intact sculptures and staggering mosaics found at Amphipolis have been a cheering reminder of past glories for a country mired in economic woes. The beauty of a sphinx and intricate mosaics of a man driving a chariot and the abduction of Persephone by Pluto have also fuelled theories the tomb was for a very high-status individual. Whoever the massive fourth-century BC tomb holds, experts said it was highly unlikely to be Alexander himself, who conquered the Persian empire and much of the known world before his death at the age of After his mysterious end in Babylon he is said to have been buried in Alexandria in Egypt, the city he founded, although no grave has ever been found.

Human remains dating back as far as 7, years have been found in a cave in southern Mexico. Experts believe the skeletons belong to the earliest-known ancestors of .
Even before the latest success, the skeleton known as Altamura Man had an important place in the study of human evolution. Located in one of the Lamalunga caves near Altamura, Italy, the fossil was discovered in surrounded by limestone and animal fossils swept in by heavy rains. However, the Altamura man himself is thought to have fallen into a well and starved, eventually being cased in limestone. Unfortunately, however, the same calcite that protected the bones has also concreted them to the cave so that they cannot be removed without damage.
This has also made dating the skeleton a challenge. However, the brow ridges are even more prominent than those of Neanderthals, leading to speculation that this may have been a member of a previous species. The DNA is too degraded to be sequenced with current techniques. The entire Neanderthal genome has already been extracted from the toe bone of a Siberian Neanderthal , but if useful information can be extracted from Altamura man, it will provide contrasting insight into the European arm of our extinct relatives, as well as an earlier stage of their evolution.

They were palm like antlers, similar to those of a Fallow deer. It is understood they were a victim of the Ice Age finally disappearing from Ireland around 10, years ago. They had very few enemies due to their size, with the wolf posing very little threat. However the best collection of fossil’s can be found at the National Museum of Ireland where there are 10 complete deer skeletons and over partial remains, which includes 6 females.
There have been many fossil finds throughout Ireland, with the most famous been Ballybetagh Bog, Glencullen, Co. Dublin where over deer skeletons were found. Other sites are Howth, Co. Dublin and Lough Gur, Co.

The well-preserved skeleton appears to be that of a woman aged about 30, said archaeologist Anna De Santis, who took part in the excavations under Caesar’s Forum, part of the sprawling complex of the Imperial Forums in central Rome. An amber necklace and four pins also were found near the 5-foot inch-long centimeter-long skeleton, she said Tuesday. The bones, dug up Monday, would likely be put on display in a museum after being examined further, De Santis said.
It was the first skeleton to be found in the 3, year-old necropolis, she said. Early this year, a funerary urn that contained human ashes, as well as bone fragments that appeared to be from a sheep, were found in one of the necropolis’ tombs. Alessandro Delfino, another archaeologist who took part in the excavations, said Monday’s discovery highlighted a “social change” in the funerary habits of the people who dwelled in the area, from incinerating to burying the dead.

The six-metre long female captured the hearts of millions after she was spotted swimming through central London in January Despite a rescue operation that was monitored by media around the world, the northern bottle-nosed sea mammal died as she was being taken back out to sea on a barge. The skeleton of the whale which became stranded in the River Thames in January and later died is to go on display Five years later: The skeleton of the northern bottle-nosed sea mammal is to be exhibited at the Natural History Museum in Tring, Hertfordshire Now, five years later, the whale’s skeleton is to be exhibited at the Natural History Museum in Tring, Hertfordshire.
Scientists believe the young adult was lost and probably trying to head west towards the deep waters of the north Atlantic when it became stranded in the shallow waters of the Thames. She had not been able to feed for three days after swimming into the river and became severely dehydrated.
