US trophy-hunters import thousands of bones and skin parts from imperilled giraffes each year

US trophy-hunters import thousands of bones and skin parts from imperilled giraffes each yearThe US is allowing the import of tens of thousands of parts each year from endangered giraffes killed for their skin and bones. A populations plummet in Africa, investigators discovered that 40,000 pieces of skin and bone from the creatures were imported into America. The Humane Society of the United States said that the body parts were turned into pillows, knife handles, bible covers, gun-case covers, boots and other trinkets.

LawyersLawyers were very much on Donald Trump’s mind early Sunday morning, as he fired off a couple of tweets ostensibly about his defense in the Russia probe, but with a clear subtext about the profession in general, stopping just short of calling them all crooks who intentionally run up their bills:

Jupiter's turmoil more than skin deep: researchers

Jupiter's turmoil more than skin deep: researchersJupiter’s tempestuous, gassy atmosphere stretches some 3,000 kilometres (1,860 miles) deep and comprises a hundredth of the planet’s mass, studies based on observations by NASA’s Juno spacecraft revealed Wednesday. The measurements shed the first light on what goes on beneath the surface of the largest planet in the Solar System, which from a distance resembles a colourful, striped glass marble. “Galileo viewed the stripes on Jupiter more than 400 years ago.

DNA shows first modern Briton had dark skin, blue eyes

DNA shows first modern Briton had dark skin, blue eyesThe first modern Briton had dark skin and blue eyes, London scientists said on Wednesday, following groundbreaking DNA analysis of the remains of a man who lived 10,000 years ago. Known as “Cheddar Man” after the area in southwest England where his skeleton was discovered in a cave in 1903, the ancient man has been brought to life through the first ever full DNA analysis of his remains. In a joint project between Britain’s Natural History Museum and University College London, scientists drilled a 2mm hole into the skull and extracted bone powder for analysis.

Scientists reveal 10,000-year-old British man had dark skin and blue eyes

Scientists reveal 10,000-year-old British man had dark skin and blue eyesThe face of a 10,000-year-old British skeleton nicknamed "Cheddar Man" has been revealed after research carried out by a team of scientists at London's Natural History Museum. SEE ALSO: Scientists have discovered spiders with tails because nightmares are real The team, which specialises in evolution and DNA, worked with model-makers and professors at University College London to build a picture of what the man behind the skeleton would actually have looked like. It was found in Cheddar Gorge, Somerset back in 1903, hence the name. Here's the skull of Cheddar Man: Part of Cheddar Man's skeleton, found in some caves in the UK over a century ago.Image: the trustees of the natural history museum, londonAnd here's the reconstruction: Scientists found that Cheddar Man would have had a darker skin pigmentation than previously suspected.Image: the trustees of the natural history museum, london“Cheddar Man is one of the oldest human specimens that we’ve worked with, and yet the preservation of DNA has been good enough to recover huge amounts of information about his appearance and ancestry," said Professor Ian Barnes, Research Leader in Ancient DNA at the Natural History Museum, in a press release sent to
Mashable. The method used to recreate Cheddar Man's face is pretty complicated and science-y, but in a nutshell it went something like this: scientists obtained some bone powder by drilling into the skull, which contained enough genetic info to allow them to reconstruct the face; 3D printing technology was then used to construct the head pictured above. “I first studied ‘Cheddar Man’ more than 40 years ago, but could never have believed that we would one day have his whole genome – the oldest British one to date!" said Professor Chris Tringer, Research Lead in Human Origins at the Natural History Museum.  "To go beyond what the bones tell us and get a scientifically-based picture of what he actually looked like is a remarkable (and from the results quite surprising!) achievement.”
Channel 4 are releasing a documentary about Cheddar Man and the reconstruction titled 'First Brit: Secrets of the 10,000 Year Old Man'. It airs Sunday 18 February. WATCH: This graphite skeleton is literally drawing itself to death
