Dear Reader Two weeks ago gold dropped almost

first_imgDear Reader, Two weeks ago, gold dropped almost back to where it was last December. The resulting negative sentiment gripping the precious metals market and indeed the whole metals and mining sector is profound and far reaching—as bad as last December, or worse. Which is odd, because the better stocks have not returned to their December lows. Producers have cut costs, explorers and developers with quality assets have been able to raise the money needed to advance, and we’ve actually been able to book some profits this year. But that’s typical; markets tend to overreact, and that, of course, creates opportunities. That said, the Casey consensus is now that broader markets are set for a major correction—much greater than the 1,000 point slide the Dow has seen over the last month. We may at long last be on the verge of leaving the eye of the global economic storm, as we’ve called it. Our colleagues at The Casey Report are preparing a special report on this subject, which we will send to all paying subscribers. But whether or not a “waterfall event” is about to hit Wall Street and beyond, if we’re facing the possibility of another 2008-type downturn, it’s only prudent to rig for stormy weather. What does that mean? It means rebalancing more toward cash and culling underperformers to that end—especially companies low on funds or losing money. Being contrarians, however, we also want to prepare to go bargain hunting. It’s in this context that I want to share some price-to-book-value research we’ve done, as you’ll see below. It’s important to keep the difference between price and value in mind when the two diverge. And they already have. Things could start moving very quickly in the weeks ahead. We’ll do our best to keep you appraised and advise you on how to proceed. Subscribers should check our portfolio pages frequently this month. Before we get to today’s article, however, I’m pleased to announce our new documentary-style film on the only way for Americans to legally minimize their taxes without leaving the US. It’s called America’s Tax-Free Zone, and you can watch it for free. As I’m sure longtime readers can guess, the focus is on Puerto Rico’s new tax incentives. Doug Casey, Peter Schiff, and other experts walk viewers through the facts and what to do. I hope you enjoy the video; I’d love to have more of you become my neighbors here in the US Caribbean.

70year old multimillionaires 1 step to survive

first_img 70-year old multimillionaire’s #1 step to survive America’s looming currency crisis I think you’ll be surprised just how easy this is – yet most Americans know nothing about this option. You don’t even have to send a single penny outside the U.S. to do it, either. Click here to learn more. France made cash transactions over €1,000 illegal, down from the previous limit of €3,000. – Governments are waging a war on cash… Although you won’t hear it in the mainstream media, many world governments want to eliminate paper cash. Governments hate paper cash because it’s hard to track. Electronic payments through banks are much easier to monitor and record. Nick Giambruno, editor of Crisis Speculator, has been following this trend closely. The War on Cash is a favorite pet project of the economic central planners. They want to eliminate hand-to-hand currency so that governments can document, control, and tax everything. In just the last few years… •  If, like us, you’re concerned about governments’ War on Cash… We suggest owning a significant amount of physical gold and silver. People across the world consider gold and silver money. They have for thousands of years. If your government eliminates paper currency, you won’t be able to store wealth by keeping cash at home or in a vault. You’ll have to store all your cash in digital form, at a bank, or another financial institution. With gold and silver, you can store a portion of your wealth at home or in a vault, outside the banking system. And, unlike cash in a bank, reckless government printing and spending can’t destroy the value of gold and silver. You should also consider reading Casey Research’s newest book, Going Global. It includes strategies to protect your money from reckless government actions, like the banning of paper cash. We typically sell this book for $99…but right now we’ll mail a hardcover copy to your front door for just $4.95. Click here to learn more. •  Brazil is sinking deeper into its worst economic crisis in decades… Brazil’s economy shrunk by 4.5% during the third quarter, according to government data released this week. It was the biggest quarterly decline since Brazil starting keeping GDP records in 1996. Its economy has now shrunk three quarters in a row. Casey readers have known about Brazil’s economic crisis for months. The downturn is only getting worse. Brazil’s economy is spiraling into a full-blown depression… Since July 2014, Brazil’s currency has lost 41% of its value against the U.S. dollar. Meanwhile, Brazil’s annual inflation rate just topped 10% for the first time in 12 years. And the country’s unemployment rate hit a six-year high of 7.9% in October. •  China’s slump is one reason why Brazil is unraveling… China’s economy grew 9.7% per year from 1990 through 2014. In 2010, China became the world’s second-biggest economy. During this time, China’s explosive growth helped boost the global economy. China needed a lot of raw materials to build its infrastructure. This helped countries, like Brazil, that export those materials. In fact, China’s rapid growth helped Brazil become the seventh-largest economy in the world. But China’s economy is slowing now. Last year, China grew at its weakest pace since 1990. That’s creating big problems for Brazil… •  Brazil sends 19% of its exports to China… That’s more than it sends to any other country…and nearly twice as much as it sends to the U.S. China’s slowing economy means it’s building fewer factories, office buildings, and bridges. That’s hurting demand for Brazil’s largest export: iron ore, the main ingredient in steel. Iron ore accounts for 19% of Brazil’s exports. It’s by far the country’s largest export. •  The U.S. economy also appears to be slowing down… According to The Wall Street Journal, spending on capital goods fell 3.8% during the first 10 months of 2015. Capital goods include equipment and machinery. Meanwhile, business investment only grew 2.2% during the third quarter. That’s one of the smallest increases since the Great Recession, according to The Wall Street Journal. The energy sector is a big reason those figures are so weak. As you likely know, energy prices have plummeted. The price of oil has dropped 40% over the past year. And the price of natural gas has dropped 34%. Energy consulting firm Wood Mackenzie estimates that North American oil companies have cut spending by $220 billion since last summer. On Monday, The Wall Street Journal reported that companies in other sectors are dialing back investments as well. The industries [that are] pulling back range from retailers and manufacturers to energy companies and some services firms… Even major retailers are cutting back on spending. Macy’s Inc. plans to close 35 to 40 stores early next year, joining J.C. Penney Co. and Abercrombie & Fitch Co. among retailers announcing cutbacks this year. Companies buy more equipment and machinery when they’re optimistic about the economy. They cut back on spending when they think the economy is slowing. Right now, declining business investment is one of many signs pointing to a slowing U.S. economy. Chart of the Day The stock price of Vale S.A. (VALE), the world’s largest iron ore miner, just hit an 11-year low… Today’s chart shows Vale’s adjusted stock price, which accounts for stock splits and dividends. Its stock price has dropped 57% this year. It’s now down 89% from the all-time high it set in 2008. Vale mines more iron ore than any other company in the world. Its stock price is crashing because iron ore demand is crashing. This points to huge problems in the global economy. Russia banned cash transactions over $10,000; Uruguay banned cash transactions over $5,000; and A money making site you had no idea existed… Your broker or financial advisor will never tell you about this little known financial website that’s helping some people make up to $300 per hour. Learn more here. Nick went on to explain that the U.S. government imposes restrictions on withdrawing your own cash from the bank. In the U.S., central planners ratchet up the War on Cash every time the government declares a made-up war on something else…a war on crime, a war on drugs, a war on poverty, a war on terror… They all end with more government intrusion into your financial affairs. Thanks to these made-up wars, the U.S. government is imposing an increasing number of regulations on cash transactions. Try withdrawing more than $10,000 in cash from your bank. They’ll treat you like a criminal or terrorist. •  We just got the clearest sign yet that paper cash is disappearing… The world’s largest printer of banknotes (paper currency) is cutting production and firing employees. Yesterday, De La Rue (LON: DLAR) announced it will cut its banknote production capacity by 25%. The company is closing half of its production lines and eliminating 300 jobs. De La Rue prints more banknotes than any other company in the world. It produces banknotes for over 150 national currencies, including the British pound sterling. Its stock price is down 20% since mid-April. The company’s CEO said the decision was made to keep the company “in line with the future needs of our global customers.” De La Rue may also sell its cash-sorting machine business for similar reasons.center_img Recommended Links — Switzerland proposed banning cash payments in excess of 100,000 francs; Italy made cash transactions over €1,000 illegal; Spain banned cash transactions over €2,500; Mexico made cash payments of more than 200,000 pesos illegal; Regards, Justin Spittler Delray Beach, Florida December 03, 2015 We want to hear from you.

Updated at 905 am ET Rear Adm Ronny Jackson P

first_imgUpdated at 9:05 a.m. ET Rear Adm. Ronny Jackson, President Trump’s embattled nominee to lead the Department of Veterans Affairs, has withdrawn from consideration for the post amid allegations he had fostered a hostile work environment and behaved improperly while serving as the top doctor leading the White House medical unit.In a statement Thursday morning, Jackson said, “Going into this process, I expected tough questions about how to best care for our veterans, but I did not expect to have to dignify baseless and anonymous attacks on my character and integrity.” He continued, “While I will forever be grateful for the trust and confidence President Trump has placed in me by giving me this opportunity, I am regretfully withdrawing my nomination to be Secretary for the Department of Veterans Affairs.” On Wednesday, Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., the ranking member of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee released a two-page statement detailing allegations against Jackson from 23 unnamed individuals.The allegations included providing “a large supply” of the opioid Percocet to a member of the White House Military Office and wrecking a government car while driving drunk after a Secret Service going-away party. Jackson denied wrecking a vehicle to reporters. In an interview with Fox & Friends on Thursday after Jackson’s withdrawal, Trump said Jackson “would have done a great job” and “had a perfect record” and called the allegations against him false.The Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee had postponed Jackson’s confirmation hearing, originally slated for Wednesday, after accusations of misconduct surfaced against Jackson, who has served as the personal physician for the president under the Trump and Obama administrations.In an interview Tuesday with NPR’s All Things Considered, Tester said committee staffers “were told stories where he was repeatedly drunk while on duty where his main job was to take care of the most powerful man in the world. That’s not acceptable,” Tester said, noting the various allegations date back to when Jackson oversaw President Barack Obama’s health care.”Some of the exact words that were used by the folks we talked to were ‘abusive toward staff,’ ‘very explosive personality,’ ‘belittles the folks underneath him,’ staff that he oversaw. ‘Screamed toward staff,’ ” Tester said. “Basically creating an environment where the staff felt that they needed to walk on eggshells when they were around him.”In the Fox interview, Trump blamed Tester for Jackson’s withdrawal and said Tester “has to have a big price to pay in Montana.” Tester is up for re-election in November, in a state Trump won handily in 2016.Trump says he has someone in mind to replace Jackson, saying it’s “somebody with political capability.”Veterans’ Affairs Committee Chairman Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., and Tester had sent a letter to Trump on Tuesday requesting additional documentation related to Jackson’s tenure as the president’s doctor and his role leading the White House medical team.The letter requested information about rumored Pentagon inspector general reports said to detail allegations into Jackson’s conduct.However, Jackson said there was no inspector general report about the allegations. “No, there was not,” he said before brushing off questions about whether he would withdraw.The White House put out a statement to make it clear that Jackson was reporting to work on Thursday in his normal post at the White House Medical Unit. But the questions about his conduct in that position may not necessarily go away just because he has withdrawn his name for the Cabinet post. Jackson’s initial nomination came as a surprise to many when the president announced his pick last month to lead the VA after the departure of Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin, who had been confirmed with unanimous bipartisan support in the Senate.While previous presidents had praised Jackson’s medical care, questions arose almost immediately about whether he had the managerial experience to oversee a massive health care operation of more than 370,000 employees that serves more than 9 million veterans and has a budget of nearly $200 billion.”Adm. Jackson is highly trained and qualified and as a service member himself, he has seen firsthand the tremendous sacrifice our veterans make and has a deep appreciation for the debt our great country owes them,” Trump said in announcing his nomination.But after the allegations against Jackson began to be reported by national media outlets this week, Trump said he wouldn’t be surprised if Jackson wanted to withdraw given the rising storm, but that it was “his decision.””I wouldn’t do it. I wouldn’t do it. What does he need it for? To be abused by a bunch of politicians that aren’t thinking nicely about our country? I really don’t think personally he should do it, but it’s totally his — I would stand behind him — totally his decision,” Trump remarked Tuesday during a news conference alongside French President Emmanuel Macron.Ultimately, as he often does, Trump appeared to go with his gut in picking Jackson and it’s unclear how much — if any — vetting the White House did before making the selection. Trump had become personally fond of Jackson, especially after he gave the president a glowing review after his first presidential physical earlier this year, even boasting that the 71-year-old president had such “great genes” that “if he had a healthier diet over the last 20 years, he might live to be 200.”Jackson joined the White House medical unit in 2006, helping care for President George W. Bush, and was formally named physician to the president in 2013 by Obama. A West Texas native, he attended Texas A&M University and the University of Texas Medical Branch, specializing in emergency medicine.There were also questions about Jackson’s position on privatizing the VA — something many of Trump’s most conservative backers have pushed for. Shulkin said he believed that was one reason he was ousted from his post, though there were also questions raised about improper travel expenses during his tenure. Copyright 2018 NPR.

It will fund “applied research and projects, and convene meetings with industry experts.”Founding funders also include the Craig Newmark Philanthropic Fund, the Ford Foundation, the Democracy Fund, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, the Tow Foundation, AppNexus and Betaworks. The initiative will be run as an independent project by the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.The initiative comes after Facebook in January launched its “Journalism Project,” aimed at establishing stronger ties with the media. Though Facebook has worked with members of the media in the past, the social network is working to ramp up that collaboration by involving news partners in its product development process from the start.”As part of the Facebook Journalism Project, we want to give people the tools necessary to be discerning about the information they see online,” Facebook’s Head of News Partnerships Campbell Brown said in a statement. “Improving news literacy is a global concern, and this diverse group assembled by CUNY brings together experts from around the world to work toward building more informed communities.” The News Integrity Initiative is aimed at ‘helping people make informed judgments about the news they read and share online.’ Add to Queue Reporterlast_img read more

California Unions Lawmakers Agree to 15 Minimum Wage

first_img Apply Now » California Unions, Lawmakers Agree to $15 Minimum Wage Image credit: Reuters | Mike Blake –shares California lawmakers and union leaders have reached a tentative deal to raise the state’s minimum wage to $15 over six years that could avert a campaign to bring the issue to voters, two California newspapers reported on Sunday, citing unnamed sources.The deal, if passed in the state legislature and signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown, would add to a wave of minimum wage increases at the state level in the United States, where the federal minimum wage has remained at $7.25 an hour for more than six years.The agreement, as reported by the Los Angeles Times and the Sacramento Bee, would gradually raise the minimum wage in the most populous U.S. state from the current $10 to $15 in 2022. Businesses with fewer than 25 employees would have one extra year to comply with the proposed law.The Bee said Brown is part of the agreement, while the Times said the Democratic governor could make a formal announcement on a deal as early as Monday.A spokesman for Brown was unavailable for comment on Sunday.Sources told the Times that lawmakers could vote on the proposed agreement by the end of next week by amending an existing wage-hike bill.To pass in the legislature, any minimum wage hike would have to win the approval of moderate Democrats, who in the past have blocked key legislation backed by the governor and the majority party’s more liberal leaders.Income inequalityRaising the minimum wage to fight income inequality has cropped up on many Democratic candidates’ agendas ahead of the November presidential, congressional and state elections.But the idea has drawn fierce opposition from conservatives and some business groups, who have said a higher minimum would harm small businesses and strain the budgets of government agencies forced to pay more to workers.”Let’s start by calling this irresponsible,” said Michael Saltsman, research director at the Employment Policies Institute, a fiscally conservative think-tank that has argued against minimum wage hikes.”When you talk about these really massive jumps it’s no longer an impact at the margin, it’s the sort of thing that could be the difference between a business staying open and closing,” he added.In 2013, Brown signed into law a measure that gradually increased the minimum wage from $8 to $10 an hour in 2016. But he said earlier this year that any future increase has to be done “very carefully” and over time.The latest proposal would allow a sitting governor to stop the increases in the event of a recession, the Bee reported.Labor unions’ proposal to raise California’s minimum wage to $15 an hour by the year 2021 has qualified to be listed on the upcoming November ballot in the state.Supporters of a minimum wage increase who pushed for the ballot question are optimistic the deal would allow them to withdraw that initiative, the papers reported.But Steve Trossman, a spokesman for the Service Employees International-United Healthcare Workers West, told the Times the union wanted to see the details of the deal before withdrawing the initiative.Trossman was not immediately available for comment.Fourteen states and several cities began 2016 with minimum wage increases. Many are now in the midst of multi-year phase-in plans that will ultimately take them to between $10 and $15 an hour.(By Sharon Bernstein; Additional reporting by Brendan O’Brien in Milwaukee; Editing by Alan Crosby and Mary Milliken) Reuters Add to Queue March 28, 2016center_img The only list that measures privately-held company performance across multiple dimensions—not just revenue.

Google Beats Oracle in 9 Billion Android Trial

first_imgGoogle Add to Queue Google Beats Oracle in $9 Billion Android Trial Register Now » Next Article Image credit: GongTo | Shutterstock.com –shares Learn how to successfully navigate family business dynamics and build businesses that excel.center_img 3 min read Reuters A U.S. jury handed Google a major victory on Thursday in a long-running copyright battle with Oracle Corp. over Android software used to run most of the world’s smartphones.The jury unanimously upheld claims by Google that its use of Oracle’s Java development platform to create Android was protected under the fair-use provision of copyright law, bringing trial to a close without Oracle winning any of the $9 billion in damages it requested.Oracle said it saw many grounds to appeal and would do so. “We strongly believe that Google developed Android by illegally copying core Java technology to rush into the mobile device market,” Oracle General Counsel Dorian Daley said in a statement.Alphabet Inc.’s Google in a statement called the verdict “a win for the Android ecosystem, for the Java programming community, and for software developers who rely on open and free programming languages to build innovative consumer products.”The trial was closely watched by software developers, who feared an Oracle victory could spur more software copyright lawsuits.Google relied on high-profile witnesses like Alphabet Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt to convince jurors it used Java to create its own innovative product, rather than steal another company’s intellectual property, as Oracle claimed.In the retrial at U.S. District Court in San Francisco, Oracle said Google’s Android operating system violated its copyright on parts of Java. Alphabet’s Google unit said it should be able to use Java without paying a fee under fair use.A trial in 2012 ended in a deadlocked jury. Shares of Oracle and Alphabet were little-changed in after-hours trade following the verdict.After the first trial, U.S. District Judge William Alsup ruled that the elements of Java at issue were not eligible for copyright protection at all. A federal appeals court disagreed in 2014, ruling that computer language that connects programs — known as application programming interfaces, or APIs — can be copyrighted. A flood of copyright lawsuits has failed to materialize in the two years since that federal appeals court ruling, suggesting Oracle’s lawsuit will not ultimately have a wide impact on the sector.Under U.S. copyright law, “fair use” allows limited use of material without acquiring permission from the rights holder for purposes such as research.During retrial, Oracle attorneys deemed Google’s defenses the “fair-use excuse.”(By Jim Christie; Additional reporting by Dan Levine; Editing by Andrew Hay) Free Webinar | July 31: Secrets to Running a Successful Family Business This story originally appeared on Reuters May 27, 2016last_img read more

Key barriers that prevent access to antibiotics in low and middleincome countries

first_img Encourage research and development of new or improved antibiotics, diagnostic tests, vaccines, and alternatives to antibiotics for bacterial infections, Support the registration of antibiotics in more countries according to clinical need, Develop and implement national treatment guidelines for the use of antimicrobials, Explore innovative funding for essential antibiotics, Ensure the quality of antibiotics and strengthen pharmaceutical regulatory capacity, and Encourage local manufacturing for cost-effective antibiotics. Source: https://cddep.org/ Reviewed by Alina Shrourou, B.Sc. (Editor)Apr 9 2019Antibiotic resistance is an emerging global public health threat spurred by the overuse and misuse of antibiotics. While “overuse” of antibiotics is widely accepted as a major health challenge, it is less well known that many people in low- and middle-income countries continue to die because they lack access to antibiotics. The majority of the world’s annual 5.7 million antibiotic-treatable deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries where the mortality burden from treatable bacterial infections far exceeds the estimated annual 700,000 deaths from antibiotic-resistant infections.In a new report, titled “Access Barriers to Antibiotics” (available upon request and online at http://www.cddep.org beginning April 11, 2019) researchers at the Center for Disease Dynamics, Economics & Policy (CDDEP) conducted stakeholder interviews in Uganda, India, and Germany, and literature reviews to identify key access barriers to antibiotics in low-, middle-, and high-income countries. The report makes several recommendations proposing action on R&D (new antibiotics and rapid diagnostic tests), strengthening regulatory capacities, encouraging the development and diversification of quality local manufacturing, exploring innovative funding to reduce out-of-pocket payments, better treatment guidelines, and awareness raising.”Lack of access to antibiotics kills more people currently than does antibiotic resistance, but we have not had a good handle on why these barriers are created,” said Dr. Ramanan Laxminarayan, CDDEP director and a co-author of the report. The findings of the report show that even after the discovery of a new antibiotic, regulatory hurdles and substandard health facilities delay or altogether prevent widespread market entry and drug availability,” explains Dr. Laxminarayan. “Our research shows that of 21 new antibiotics entering markets between 1999 and 2014, less than five were registered in most countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Just the mere existence of an effective antibiotic does not mean that they are available in countries where they are most needed.”Health facilities in many low- and middle-income countries are substandard and lack staff who are properly trained in administering antibiotics. In Uganda, 10 to 54 percent of health staff posts are unfilled because of poor pay, high stress, lack of resources, and poor management. Staffing on wards is inadequate to administer medicines, patients miss antibiotic doses, and public nurses sometimes request compensation for administering medicines. In India, there is one government doctor for every 10,189 people (the World Health Organization [WHO] recommends a ratio of 1:1,000), or a deficit of 600,000 doctors, and the nurse:patient ratio is 1:483, implying a shortage of 2 million nurses.In low- and middle-income countries, weak drug supply chains fail to make antibiotics consistently available. In Uganda, researchers found that many products were stored and transported long distances without cold-chain temperature control, and only 47 percent of medicines on the WHO’s Essential Medicines List were procured through the centralized authority, resulting in chronic shortages. Moreover, public-private supply chain delivery systems were not leveraged to improve drug availability outside specific programs.Related StoriesTAU’s new Translational Medical Research Center acquires MILabs’ VECTor PET/SPECT/CTApplication of machine learning methods to healthcare outcomes researchAMSBIO offers new, best-in-class CAR-T cell range for research and immunotherapyLack of oversight and regulation in the drug manufacturing and supply chain leads to poor drug quality and falsified medicines; 17 percent of the substandard or falsified medicines reported to the WHO are antibiotics, and each year, more than 169,000 childhood pneumonia deaths are caused by falsified antibiotics, researchers reported.Even when antibiotics are available, patients are often unable to afford them. High out-of-pocket medical costs to the patient are compounded by limited government spending for health services. In Uganda, where just 8.9 percent of the national budget goes to health services, 41 percent of health expenditure is out-of-pocket, and 23 percent of households spend more than 10 percent of their income on healthcare. Moreover, limited government spending results in drug shortages in public health facilities which forces patients to go to private pharmacies or drugstores to buy medicines that should be provided free. In India, 65 percent of health expenditure is out-of-pocket, versus 13 percent in Germany, and such expenditures push some 57 million people into poverty each year in India alone.Worldwide, the irrational use of antibiotics and poor antimicrobial stewardship lead to treatment failure and propagate the spread of drug resistance which, in turn, further narrows the available array of effective antibiotics. Finally, research and development for new antimicrobials, vaccines, and diagnostic tests has slowed since the 1960s as profitable investment in this area is limited by low sales volumes, short duration of treatment, competition with established products and cheaper generics, and the possibility that resistance will rapidly emerge.National governments, policymakers, pharmaceutical companies, public and private healthcare institutions, and international public health bodies all have a role to play in improving access to antibiotics worldwide. While interventions to improve access must take into account differences among countries, the researchers provided the following recommendations to address key barriers and improve access to antibiotics:last_img read more

Largest Neolithic Settlement in Israel Uncovered Up to 3000 People May Have

first_img Photos: 2,000-Year-Old Roman Road and Coins Discovered in Israel Back to the Stone Age: 17 Key Milestones in Paleolithic Life Photos: Roadside Dig Reveals 10,000-Year-Old House in Israel Archaeologists have known about this location, called the Motza site, for decades. However, now that the government plans to build a new highway entrance and new roundabouts there, the Israel Antiquities Authority sent a team to do a full-scale excavation of the Neolithic settlement, Vardi told Live Science. This effort quickly became the largest excavation of a Neolithic site in the country, he said. During the Neolithic, hunter-gatherer groups began farming and making permanent settlements. So, it came as no surprise when they found large buildings with rooms where Neolithic people once lived, public facilities and places for rituals. Alleyways ran between the buildings, showing that the settlement had an advanced layout. Some buildings even had plaster floors. The team also uncovered human burials beneath and around the houses. Some of the burials also held burial goods, likely offerings that may have been given to help the deceased in the afterlife. Some of these grave goods came from far away — including obsidian beads from Anatolia (modern-day Turkey) and seashells from the Mediterranean Sea and Red Sea — indicating that the people at this site traded with neighboring regions. The excavation also uncovered several stone and mother-of-pearl bracelets, which, given their small size, were likely worn by children or adolescents, Vardi said. He added that one burial showed that these bracelets were worn on the upper arm. The site also has thousands of stone arrowheads for hunting, axes for felling trees, and sickle blades and knives, as well as figurines whose styles date to the Neolithic. Radiocarbon dating of the seeds found at the site indicates that people lived there between 9,000 and 8,800 years ago, Vardi said. In addition to farming crops and keeping goats, these people kept cows and pigs; they also hunted game, such as gazelle, deer, wolves and foxes, as shown by animal remains found there. “Based on the data that we have and from the fauna, we have a pretty good notion that the people at the site were farmers and they were specialists in what they did,” Vardi said. After the Neolithic period ended, people continued to live there. It’s clear why this spot was so desirable, Vardi said, as it’s near a large spring and several smaller springs that supply fresh water. The site is now 3.1 miles (5 kilometers) from Jerusalem, on the banks of the Sorek Stream. The entire Motza site is about 0.1 square miles (30 to 40 hectares). As the excavation wraps up, the team still has a lot on its plate. The researchers plan to publish several papers and articles for the public on the site, as well as put some of the artifacts in museums for public viewing, Vardi said.center_img Before it gets destroyed by a newly constructed highway, a 9,000-year-old Neolithic site just outside of Jerusalem is getting an exhaustive excavation, according to the Israel Antiquities Authority. The humans who lived there during the Neolithic (the last period of the Stone Age) were a sophisticated bunch. Many of them were likely farmers who had stored hundreds of thousands of seeds — including lentils, chickpeas and beans — in storage facilities. These ancient people also kept domesticated goats, as shown by animal remains found at the site, and they traded with neighboring regions, such as what is now Turkey, Jordan and the areas around the Red Sea. “This is the first time that such a large-scale settlement from the Neolithic period — 9,000 years ago — [has been] discovered in Israel,” Hamoudi Khalaily and Jacob Vardi, archaeologists and excavation directors at the site, who work with the Israel Antiquities Authority, said in a statement. “At least 2,000 [to] 3,000 residents lived here — an order of magnitude that parallels a present-day city.” [See Photos of the Neolithic Excavation]Advertisement Largest Neolithic Excavation on Record in IsraelArchaeologists are excavating a 9,000-year-old farming settlement in Israel that dates to the Neolithic.

Modern Humans Failed in Early Attempt to Migrate Out of Africa Old

first_img In Photos: Bones from a Denisovan-Neanderthal Hybrid A prehistoric, broken skull is revealing the secrets of ancient humans, divulging that early modern humans left Africa much earlier than previously thought, a new study finds. The skull, found in Eurasia and dating back 210,000 years, is the oldest modern human bone that anthropologists have discovered outside Africa, the researchers said. This skull, however, had an unusual neighbor: a 170,000-year-old, possibly Neanderthal skull that was found resting next to it, in a cave in southern Greece. Given that the Neanderthal skull is a solid 40,000 years younger than the modern human skull, it appears that this particular human’s early dispersal out of Africa failed. There are no living descendants of this enigmatic human alive today, and this person’s group was replaced by Neanderthals, who later lived in that very same cave, the researchers said.

Other earlier modern-human dispersals out of Africa have been documented at sites in Israel, including one based on the discovery of a 194,000- to 177,000-year-old modern human jaw from Misliya Cave and others tied to early human fossils dated to about 130,000 to 90,000 years ago at the Skhul and Qafzeh caves. But “we think that these early migrants did not actually contribute to modern humans living outside of Africa today, but rather died out and were probably locally replaced by Neanderthals,” Harvati said. “We hypothesize this is a similar situation with the Apidima 1 [the newly dated modern human skull] population.” This is the oldest known modern human skull in Eurasia, dating to about 210,000 years ago.

Credit: Copyright Katerina Harvati/Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen Photos: Newfound Ancient Human Relative Discovered in Philippines Discovery in Greece The two ancient skulls were unearthed in the late 1970s by researchers at the Museum of Anthropology at the University of Athens. Given that the skulls were found in Apidima Cave, the researchers named them Apidima 1 and Apidima 2. Both skulls, neither of which had a lower jaw, were found side by side in a block of breccia, angular pieces of rock that were cemented together over time. However, neither skull was in good shape; the damaged Apidima 1 included only the back of the skull, and at the time, researchers weren’t sure what species it came from. Apidima 2, which preserved the facial region of the skull, was identified as Neanderthal, but it was broken and distorted. For years, the skulls sat at the Museum of Anthropology in Athens until they were finally cleaned and prepared from the breccia block in the late 1990s and early 2000s. In the new study, Harvati and her colleagues put both skulls in a CT scanner, which generated 3D virtual reconstructions of each specimen. Then, they analyzed the features of each. As in previous analyses, the team concluded that Apidima 2, which had a thick, rounded brow ridge, was from an early Neanderthal. Identifying Apidima 1 was more challenging because of its fragmentary remains, but the researchers were able to create mirror images of its right and left sides, which gave them a more complete reconstruction. [In Photos: Oldest Homo Sapiens Fossils Ever Found] Several clues, such as the rounded back of the skull (a feature unique to modern humans), indicated that Apidima 1 was an early modern human, or Homo sapiens, the researchers said. Dating the skulls Next, the researchers dated the skulls. Previous analyses had estimated that the skulls were roughly from the same time period, given that they were discovered next to each other, suggesting that they lived around the same time. But by using a method known as uranium-series dating, the new team found that the skulls were not from the same time period. At 170,000 years old, the Neanderthal skull fit within the range of other Neanderthal remains found in other parts of Europe. But the modern human skull was an unexpected outlier, predating the next-oldest H. sapiens remains in Europe by more than 150,000 years, the researchers found. Uranium-series dating is one of only a few ways to date such ancient bones, “but it’s not without some pitfalls,” said Larry Edwards, regents professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Minnesota, who was not involved in the study. In effect, the method works because uranium decays into thorium. The more thorium there is in a sample, the older it is, Edwards told Live Science. However, bones and teeth don’t contain much of their own uranium; rather, they absorb it from the environment over time. “That then requires you to make interpretations on how and when the uranium was picked up and whether or not the uranium was lost,” he said. But although this technique isn’t ideal for dating skulls such as Apidima 1 and 2, it can still provide useful data, Edwards said. “I think it’s pretty solid, their [dating] conclusions,” he said. Out-of-Africa implications Despite the skull’s title as the “oldest known modern human fossil in Eurasia,” the new finding does not rewrite the fundamentals of human evolution, said Eleanor Scerri, an associate professor and leader of the Pan-African Evolution research group at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History in Jena, Germany, who was not involved in the study. Those fundamentals are that humans first evolved in Africa and then ventured out into the rest of the world. “The oldest human fossils still come from Africa and are about 100,000 years older than the Apidima fossil,” Scerri told Live Science in an email. “That is roughly 4,000 generations — ample opportunity to move around.” That said, “if we want to ask questions specifically about the early history of our species in Eurasia, then this study may confirm the arguments made for multiple, early dispersals,” Scerri said. In addition, this finding supports the view that the population of “early Homo sapiens was fragmented and dispersed,” she said. [Top 10 Mysteries of the First Humans] Previous studies have suggested that “Homo sapiens left Africa every time the Saharan and Arabian deserts shrunk, which happened broadly on 100,000-year cycles,” roughly agreeing with dates from this study, she noted. What’s more, if modern humans truly had reached Eurasia by at least 210,000 years ago, then “we can no longer assume that ‘Mousterian’ stone tool assemblages found across large regions of Eurasia are necessarily being produced by Neanderthals,” she said. There are many avenues open to researchers hoping to learn more about the Apidima skulls. For instance, the skulls could contain ancient DNA or primordial proteins that could verify their species, Eric Delson, who was not involved with the research, wrote in an accompanying perspective published online today (July 10) in the journal Nature. Delson is a professor and the chair of the Department of Anthropology at Lehman College and The Graduate Center at the City University of New York. Moreover, researchers could study the cave’s paleo-environment and climate to figure out what conditions were like when Apidima 1 and 2 lived there. Today, the cave is on a cliff facing the sea, reachable only by boat, Harvati said. The study was published online today in the journal Nature.

Stopping MGNREGA can be harmful for BJP in tribal belt

first_imgregional elections SHARE SHARE EMAIL November 23, 2018 COMMENTS COMMENT Rajasthan A tribal family near Jharol in Rajasthan   –  AM Jigeesh Tribals are migrating to cities and neighbouring States in search of jobs  Parvat Singh and Prakash, two teachers at a village school in Jhadol, a tribal majority taluk in Udaipur, are facing a peculiar problem. The upper primary school had a good number of children but of late the drop-out rate has increased. “The reason is that many parents have migrated to cities in Rajasthan and Gujarat in search of jobs. Children are forced give up education to look after their grandparents. We are going to their homes to convince them that leaving school will be a bad decision,” they told BusinessLine.Increase in migrationMigration is not new in this part of Rajasthan, bordering Gujarat. But local people said stopping work under MGNREGA and delaying wages has resulted in an increase in migration. The BJP is thus facing the anger of the tribals in the region, who provided them handsome support to come to power in the State in 2013 and at the Centre in 2014. “For the last three years, I haven’t got even a day’s work under MGNREGA. I used to get at least 10-days’ work a month. But it has been stopped,” said Keshu Lal from Amlia village.Thawar Chand, another tribal youth from Jamun village, had to go to Gujarat in search of jobs. “I was in Gujarat in the last two year. Now I have to go to Udaipur in search of work. Agriculture has become difficult as this area faces water scarcity. Government should know our problems,” said Chand, a BJP supporter.Shankar Lal Pargi, a two-time elected president of Falasia panchayat, is contesting the election on a CPI(M) ticket. Though he is not very confident of his victory, he said his fight is to ensure basic infrastructure. “The BJP stopped MGNREGA saying it was a concept of communists. Our people do not have a regular income now. The BJP promised it will build infrastructure, but did nothing. We do not have good roads, hospitals and schools,” he said.Bhil or Gharasia tribes constitute most of the population in the district, which stood with the BJP in 2013. Out of the eight seats in Udaipur, five are reserved for STs. The BJP won six seats in 2013 and the Congress secured just one in Jhadol, while Vallabnagar went to an independent candidate. The BJP got a huge support from the tribal community in the State in 2013.Kishan Lal, a Congress leader and former president of Rajsamand district parishad, said the BJP won the confidence of tribals in 2013 by making false promises. “The situation has changed now,” said Lal, a a tribal himself. “We will win here as people are fed up with the BJP,” he claimed.What tribals faceMandva village is a tribal habitat in the area. “We take drinking water from the same pond used by animals. We have to walk two kilometres from our homes to get drinking water. We have made complaints but no one has addressed it,” said Lakshman and Nathu of Mandva. Both had come to Flasia on their way to Udaipur in search of a job. “Under MGNREGA, we did basic works such as laying pipes for drinking water. It hasn’t moved in the last four years,” they added.There have been struggles in the past for implementing the Scheduled Tribes and Other Traditional Forest Dwellers (Recognition of Forest Rights) Act of 2006. “It has been 12 years, but just less than 25 per cent of the tribals have got their land rights. The government has not given support for their vocations such as agriculture or cattle rearing. Doing away with MGNREGA was huge blow for them. People don’t have even two times’ meal in some of the tribal localities,” said Rajesh Singhvi and advocate fighting for tribal rights. Published on SHARE rural developmentlast_img read more

Cycling Bardet shameful but revengeful after Tour de France blow

first_img Cycling 10 Jul 2019 Cycling – Mountain training will pay off for Thomas says Ineos team boss Overall, Bardet lies 26th, 2:08 adrift of Thomas.”There was a lot of disappointment yesterday, even a feeling of shame towards his team mates and towards himself,” his sports director Julien Jurdie told reporters before the start of Friday’s seventh stage to Chalon sur Saone. “Shame is a word that he used. He made huge sacrifices to be here, we know how committed he is.”For all the swashbuckling talks at AG2R-La Mondiale, the French team seem far from fulfilling their ambitions.”I’ve got the feeling that I was not at the required level after all the hard work I’ve done,” Bardet, who has not won on the World Tour stage in two years, told reporters.”I felt like I was a spectator of the race. The legs did not respond like I wanted them to, it’s not a good sign.”Bardet, however, has a never-say-die attitude, even if his recent form and the time he has already lost suggest he will not make it onto the podium in Paris.”I feel revengeful. I want to race with my guts. Yesterday was a big setback but there are a lot more stages left. I came for more than this. It’s just starting,” he added.
