    More human remains have been found at Lake Mead, marking the third set discovered in the area since early May. On Monday, the National Park Service (NPS) was alerted about human remains at Lake Mead National Recreation Area around 4:30 p.m. local time, the NPS said in a news release. Park rangers arrived on the scene and blocked off the area to "recover the remains," NPS added. The Clark County Medical Examiner has been contacted to determine the cause of death. Authorities are still investigating, the NPS said, adding that "no further information is available at this time." The gripping...
  • Local companies cozy up to robots in tight labor market

    Can collaborative robots work with humans? Robots are filling more jobs than ever before, a trend that was accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, a shrinking pool of willing workers and new innovations that reduced the cost of automation for smaller companies. FAIRFIELD, Ohio — Editor's note: An earlier version of this story erroneously reported the cost of the cobot at the Fairfield Skyline. A Skyline restaurant in Fairfield has a new server that rolls through a 12-hour shift while treating customers to songs like "Happy Birthday" and the "Skyline Time" jingle. While it isn't getting paid hourly, it costs about...

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced late Thursday that a person in Colorado has tested positive for an H5 bird flu virus — the first such recorded infection in the United States. The CDC did not reveal the neuraminidase subtype of the virus — the N portion of an influenza A virus’ name. The country is currently experiencing an unprecedented outbreak of H5N1 bird flu in both wild birds and in commercial poultry flocks. The man, described by Colorado health officials as being younger than 40 years old, experienced only fatigue; he is now in isolation and being...
  • Evolutionary Acceptance and Misinformation

    ICR ^ | OCTOBER 29, 2021 | JAKE HEBERT, PH.D*
    A recent study claims that a majority (54%) of Americans now accept as true the statement “Human beings, as we know them today, developed from earlier species of animals.”1 Unfortunately, given the increased secularization of American society, this increased acceptance of evolution may well be real. Nevertheless, it’s remarkable that, despite decades of attempts by the scientific establishment and popular culture to convince Americans of human evolution, 46% of Americans still reject it! Not too surprisingly, evolutionists attribute this apparent increase in acceptance of human evolution to higher levels of education and scientific literacy. In their minds, it is only...

    Originally built to speed up calculations, a machine-learning system is now making shocking progress at the frontiers of experimental quantum physicsQuantum physicist Mario Krenn remembers sitting in a café in Vienna in early 2016, poring over computer printouts, trying to make sense of what MELVIN had found. MELVIN was a machine-learning algorithm Krenn had built, a kind of artificial intelligence. Its job was to mix and match the building blocks of standard quantum experiments and find solutions to new problems. And it did find many interesting ones. But there was one that made no sense. “The first thing I thought...
  • Reckoning with an animal that sees us as prey—living and working in crocodile country

    A crocodile known locally as ‘Barrat’ emerges from the water of the lower Daintree River, Far North Queensland. Credit: Kevin Crook The wet season in tropical Australia begins with tension. Physical tension, caused by the friction of earth and clouds. Mental tension, caused by the heat, and the expectation of rain and relief. It is also an ecological tension, where every plant and animal is poised—genetically, physiologically—to grow, reap, sow and copulate within a few short months. We call it the build-up. The tension builds, and then it breaks. It was at the point of breaking when Val Plumwood,...

    WHILE we are all applauding the roll-out of the various vaccines for Covid-19, it is time to take stock of well, stocks. The supply of the vaccine has been sparse - not just in Canada, but around the world. Stock prices for the few companies which have been able to rush through the emergency approvals for their respective vaccines have soared while the pandemic has killed millions, put hundreds of millions out of work, and reset all our lives. It may come to pass that in order to travel in years to come, we may need a different array of...

    SALEM, Ore. (AP) - A bill before the Oregon Legislature would make it the second state to allow human composting as an alternative to traditional burial or cremation. House bill 2574, sponsored by Reps. Pam Marsh and Brian L. Clem, would allow bodies to be disposed of by alternative processes, including natural organic reduction - an accelerated decomposition process that turns bodies into soil within weeks, KOIN reported. It also clarifies rules surrounding alkaline hydrolysis, known as aqua cremation, and extends other funeral industry privileges and responsibilities to include natural organic reduction. A public hearing for the bill was set...

The helicopter gunshop Mi-28NM is being fitted with drones which Russia will be able to fire from missile launch tubes, an insider told state news agency Tass. The source said: "Built-in instruments transmit information from the helicopter's weapons control system to the payload, be it controlled detonation missiles, guided missiles, mini-drones or suicide drone Click here to go to you tube live...

    As a part of President Trump’s executive order allowing federal officers to patrol cities in the wake of protesting, Portland has been consumed with unrest and violent government overreach. Protesters have been tear-gassed, assaulted, shot, and most recently it was reported that they were being removed from the streets in unmarked vehicles. It seems area moms have had enough and decided to step in to help protect the protesters. The protests began in the city in the days following the murder of George Floyd and, though growing smaller, have not stopped in the past 50 days. And though these demonstrations...

    A South Dakota company expects to start human trials next month for a Covid-19 antibody treatment derived from the plasma of cows. But these aren't just any cows. Scientists genetically engineered the animals to give them an immune system that's part human. That way, the animals produce disease-fighting human antibodies to Covid-19, which are then turned into a drug to attack the virus. "These animals are producing neutralizing antibodies that kill [the novel coronavirus] in the laboratory," Eddie Sullivan, CEO of SAB Biotherapeutics said in a statement to CNN. "We are eager to advance to the clinic as we move forward...

    There are many questions surrounding what will happen with the “autonomous zone” now called Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) established in downtown Seattle. Fox News spoke to Michael Withey, a human rights lawyer and longtime Seattle activist, about CHOP’s purpose and how it has developed over the past week. “I don't speak for the leadership. I only have gone there as a legally trained person in human rights. But I think it's going to be there for a long time. As the mayor said, ‘it's going to be a summer of love.’ That's what I hope it is, but it's...

    The world’s oldest man, who turns 112 on Sunday, has been forced to cancel his birthday celebrations because of coronavirus. Bob Weighton, from Hampshire in the UK, was due to celebrate with family and friends, but with the UK locked down he will spend his birthday alone. “Everything is cancelled, no visitors, no celebration,” he told Sky News. “It’s a dead loss as far as celebration is concerned.” Weighton lived through the last truly global pandemic, the 1918 Spanish Flu outbreak, but says he does not remember it.

    Here’s something I hope doesn’t become the beginning of a disturbing trend. In a suburb of Nashville, Tennessee, an ICE agent arrived at the home of an illegal alien to make an arrest. The suspect was sitting in his van with son and the officer blocked them off from escaping with his own vehicle. What should have been a fairly routine detention then took a turn for the weird. Neighbors began showing up, delivery food, water and gasoline to the suspect, eventually forming a human chain to block the ICE agent while the man ran back into his house. (The...

    For more than a decade Pakistan has kept Waziristan under tightly regulated travel restrictions Tens of thousands of people have been killed in Pakistan's long battle with militants as part of the post-9/11 "war on terror". Evidence of murder and torture by soldiers and insurgents is emerging only now. The BBC has gained rare access to some of the victims. It was early in 2014 when TV news networks trumpeted a major victory in the war against the Pakistani Taliban - the killing of one of the group's most senior commanders in a night-time air raid.

    More than a decade has passed since we joined forces to try and find out if there was any reality to a claim that highly accurate units of length had been in used during the British Neolithic. We found that these supposedly primitive people were using a highly developed science that connected them to the rhythms of the Earth.But our biggest personal challenge has been to face up to the consequences of our own findings because they have brought us to the point where we have found compelling evidence that our planet and its environment has been carefully designed for...
