BBC - Future - The massive volcano that scientists cant find

"The dimming effect of eruptions can be so powerful, artificial ‘volcanoes’ have been suggested as a means of combatting climate change – so Pang figured he would find out exactly when Kuwae erupted by looking for a period of global cooling.
"

I love The Experts. They tell us to rid the skies of smog--which has a cooling effect and gives nice sunsets--then they want to create volcanic eruptions to smog up the atmosphere to fight climate change. Ye Gad. I'll pass. Sulphuric acid does a real job on my car's paint.

I think Lovecraft would have written this story differently. What unspeakable nourishment for those roots...
WWII aviators remains found embedded in tree | New York Post

Tears ago, I wrote a story for August Derleth who died before ever seeing it. It went like this--

It begins with a quote how even Nature challenges the Unnatural.

A Norseman leaves his young child and ventures deep into the heart of a dark forest. There he is set upon by A Berserker, a shape-- shifter who kills and devours him.

Two decades later, the son sets out to find and destroy a monster terrorizing several villages. He encounters it and a fight to the death follows when suddenly a great oak twists and its limbs reach out to strangle and crush the Berserker. In the battle the Bear-thing is destroyed and the tree is half-uprooted; and we find his father's bones twined among its roots.

Re: Very Unusual News of the Day

Yes, this is disgusting.

The police have been getting a lot of bad PR lately, and, frankly, they deserve much of it.

Yep, there are a lot of good cops out there but there's a fair share of bullies with badges as well. Even worse are the incompetents, the guys who can't handle a sudden adrenaline rush. It takes a certain type of individual to make a good police officer and they aren't a dime a dozen. Better training that stresses the safety of others as well as the police officer involved is needed. Also a more selective recruitment of officers. The tragedy of the Justine Diamond case, like many others, was appalling.

The psychos who target cops are just as much responsible for the Diamond death as that apparently easily spooked officer.

Ancient humans had sex with non humans

25 Jul, 2017 9:02am




NZ Herald

New research shows that ancient humans had sex with non human species.
According to a study conducted by Omer Gokcumen, an assistant professor of biological sciences at the University of Buffalo, ancient humans had intercourse with a "ghost species" of "proto human".
Gokcumen explains that humans are only one member of a broader species named "hominins".
The research found that humans had sex with other members of the hominins group.



Gokcumen found "wildly different" genes in DNA of humans living in Sub-Saharan Africa. He believes these genes can be traced back to about 150,000 years ago when ancient humans were breading with this mysterious "ghost species".
This other species is referred to by the scientific community as a "ghost species" as there are no known fossils that can be analysed.
"It seems that interbreeding between different early hominin species is not the exception - it's the norm," Gokcumen said, quoted by the Sun.
"Based on our analysis, the most plausible explanation for this extreme variation is archaic introgression - the introduction of genetic material from a 'ghost' species of ancient hominins."
