    Researchers at The Australian National University (ANU) have uncovered a previously unconfirmed population boom across South East Asia that occurred 4,000 years ago, thanks to a new method for measuring prehistoric population growth. Using the new population measurement method, which utilises human skeletal remains, they have been able to prove a significant rapid increase in growth across populations in Thailand, China and Vietnam during the Neolithic Period, and a second subsequent rise in the Iron Age. Lead researcher Clare McFadden, a PhD Scholar with the ANU School of Archaeology and Anthropology, said the population trend was consistent across samples taken...

    NBC host Megyn Kelly has stood up for U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh as she made the point that he has denied the sexual harassment allegations and said his accuser was being represented by 'Democratic operatives'. Kelly, a victim of sexual harassment herself, was hosting a panel on her Megyn Kelly Today show on Monday when she fired up and said the whole situation involving Kavanaugh had become 'completely political'. It comes after a second woman came forward accusing Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct decades ago. Christine Blasey Ford, a university professor, last week accused him of sexual assault in...

    A Roman cemetery has been unearthed on the site of a housing development in North Lincolnshire. Dozens of 2,000-year-old skeletons have been found at the site near Winterton where 135 homes are being built. So far more than 60 graves have been excavated by a team of archaeologists at the 1,500 sq m (16,145 sq ft) site. Pieces of pottery and "grave goods" left for the dead have been found in the plots containing the remains of men, women and children. Natasha Powers, senior manager at Allen Archaeology, said the discovery was "not an everyday find". "We knew there was...

    PragerU ^ | 9/24/2018 | PragerU-Paul Kengor
    When writing The Communist Manifesto, Karl Marx thought he was providing a road to utopia, but everywhere his ideas were tried, they resulted in catastrophe and mass murder. In this video, Paul Kengor, Professor of Political Science at Grove City College, illuminates the life of the mild-mannered 19th Century German whose ideas led to the rise of some of the most brutal dictators in world history.

    HEROISM AND GENIUS is the dramatic flesh-and-blood account of the real men who built the West's civilization during the dark centuries after the collapse of the Roman Empire. It tells the inspiring story of how these towering giants of mankind, their minds imbued with the genius of Christianity, integrated the achievements of the Jewish people, Greeks, Romans, Arabs and Germanics, creating a new society that embodied the Catholic vision of God and man, time and eternity. Although it highlights the role of priests, there are countless interesting insights into the formidable laymen and women who also shaped the new social...

    The Eastern Slovakia Museum in Kosice has presented two unique bronze helmets from the late Bronze Age. A mushroom picker found them last year near the village of Trhoviste in Michalovce county. The finder brought the objects to the museum in January of this year. The museum's archaeologist Dárius Gasaj informed the Regional Monument's Board. "This precious finding consists of two Bronze helmets, partly stuck to each other. There were also two pairs of protective cheek pads and two spiral arm guards," said Róbert Pollák, director of the museum, as quoted by the SITA newswire. The finder wishes to remain...

    The bullae were used in ancient times for the sealing of letters and scrolls written on papyrus. If a letter arrived with a broken bulla, it meant it had been opened. Unfortunately, those letters and scrolls did not survive through the 2,200 years that have passed, only the seals remained, to tell the story of the archive. Dr. Donald Zvi Ariel of the Israel Antiquities Authority, one of the world's leading experts on bullae, examined a group of 300 bullae and identified on the seal impressions figures of Greek gods such as Athena, Apollo and Aphrodite, as well as cornucopia,...

    An Associated Press correction last week and reactions to it show that the question of whether the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany were allies at the dawn of World War II remains a hot-button issue for many Russians and eastern Europeans. The correction was issued to an article about a Holocaust commemoration in the Ukrainian city of Lviv that originally called the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany “former allies.” The AP concluded that the pact reached on Aug. 23, 1939 by the German and Soviet foreign ministers Joachim von Ribbentrop and Vyacheslav Molotov didn’t constitute a formal alliance, thus the...

    Stalin’s Priests” tells the story of Rolf Wozzack, a KGB agent, who is hand chosen by Joseph Stalin himself as part of the Russian leader’s plan to infiltrate the Catholic church to subvert it for his own use and eventually destroy it from within.

    Types of Repressed Memory Cases At the heart of repressed memory cases is a fundamental set of assumptions: That people routinely banish traumatic experiences from consciousness because they are too horrifying to contemplate; that these forgotten experiences cannot be recalled by any normal process but only by special techniques; that these special techniques produce reliable recovery of memory; that before such recovery, these forgotten experiences cause miserable symptoms; that healing is possible only by digging out and reliving the forgotten experiences. In point of fact there is no cogent scientific support for this repression folklore, and and ample reason to...

  • NYT: Kavanaugh Has No Right to Presumption of Innocence, ‘Politics’ Should Decide His Guilt Instead

    “It’s natural to place this sort of accusation within a criminal-justice framework: the burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt; the presumption of innocence; the right to confront and respond to an accuser. If Judge Kavanaugh stood criminally accused of attempted rape, all of that would apply with full force. But those concepts are a poor fit for Supreme Court confirmation hearings, where there’s no presumption of confirmation, and there’s certainly no burden that facts be established beyond a reasonable doubt.” emphasis added So if due process traditions should not inform how Senators evaluate the sexual assault allegations against Kavanaugh,...

    Connections between the Kremlin and international terrorism extend back for decades. The KGB helped develop modern terrorism. It provided weapons to terrorist groups, including Hezbollah, helped devise aircraft hijackings during the 1960s, and promoted the concept of suicide bombings against both military and civilian targets. According to KGB defectors, the FSB successor has continued to sponsor terrorists such as Ayman al-Zawahiri, who trained in Russia in the 1990s before joining Osama bin Laden. During its proxy attack on Ukraine, Moscow supplied the missile system to separatists who shot down a Malaysian Airlines jet, killing nearly 300 civilians. The West has...
