I'm very reluctant to update Firefox as I have found that doing this sometimes results in things not working as they did.

I still run XP, also without updates (yes, I know that MS have stopped supporting it anyway) as there always seems to be some other problem that requires changing things.

I do have a Linux option that seems to work quite well. But although I am reasonably computer savvy I think that to properly understand Linux (or Unix) is a bit too geeky for my aging brain.

Crystal,

Good Evening.

...The reservoir, he said, is nearly 20-miles-long, and reaches a depth of over 4 miles...

Four miles deep huh

Wouldn't that put it a long way below sea level ?

I was thinking of a comparison with the Dead Sea.

I went to Mozilla; they said I had the latest version, so I refreshed it. It didn't help. Must be my weak computer. I think Conforums has changed/increased their ads. Plus, Firefox is not good at dealing with Adobe Flash player. I can't afford to pay for "No Ads". Think I may have to leave Conforums sites unless or until I get a new computer. Sigh.....


You can't do that Swamprat!

UFO that morphs into odd shapes appears across Cornwall leaving locals baffled to its origin, but is there a simple explanation?

A strange looking object has been seen flittering over the skies of Cornwall

Locals posted clips to social media of the shimmering black object in the sky

Its movements across the county were uncharacteristic of a flock of birds

The Eden Project who are launching a space show have laid claim to the UFO

A strange looking object seen flittering over the skies of Cornwall left locals bemused, with some believing that aliens had paid a visit to the UK's southernmost county.

A number of clips taken over the past couple of days shows a shimmering black object in the sky morphing into different shapes and sizes, uncharacteristic of a flock of birds.

Surfer Kiefer Krishnan, caught the strange object on his Go-Pro camera while hitting the waves on Monday.

Hottest day in Shanghai’s history

User Image

Shanghai, China—with 24 million residents, the world’s largest city proper—had its hottest day ever recorded on Friday. Temperatures reached a preliminary high of 40.9°C (105.6°F) at the Xujiahui station in Shanghai, where temperatures have been monitored since 1872. The previous record high was 40.8°C, recorded in 2013, with the runner-up of 40.6°C also occurring that year. Much of China has been roasting in unusually hot weather this month, noted phys.org. Lows in Shanghai have failed to drop below 80°F for more than a week, and heat indexes have been averaging 110°-120°F.

Temperatures could match or exceed the all-time high yet again in Shanghai before a relative cooldown arrives by the middle of next week.

According to insurance broker Aon Benfield, portions of China’s Northeast, North China Plain, and Loess Plateau provinces (well north of Shanghai) were pounded by severe thunderstorms from July 13 - 17, causing flooding, wind, and hail damage that killed 38 people and cost over $3.4 billion.

Science Alert

Sign of a Mysterious Human Ancestor Has Been Found in Our Spit

"We call it a 'ghost' species"

by MIKE MCRAE
22 JUL 2017

It's not enough for some people on this planet to say they have their mother's eyes – they can now claim to have their great, great, great… (a few thousand greats later) …great grandmother's saliva.

A variation on the gene for our spit's mucus shows signs of having been passed down from a distant ancestor. Not only is this gene unique among modern humans, it looks nothing like the one possessed by our Neanderthal or Denisovan cousins, leaving us to ask; just who did they get it from?

MUC7 is a gene that makes the long strings of protein called mucin, which gives our spit its thick, sticky quality.

Not all MUC7 genes are alike, with a repeating region of code marking out variations that could be useful in tracing back different lineages in our modern human population.

That was the plan for a team of researchers from the University of Buffalo in the US, who analysed the mucin-7 gene from more than 2,500 individual genomes from modern humans to see what secrets these differences might hold.

Previous research had suggested a link between the number of repeating sequences and protection against asthma, though in this instance the researchers didn't find a correlation.

They did happen to find a relationship between the MUC7 gene types and the kinds of microbes we have in our mouth, based on samples of microflora taken from 130 volunteers.

But the big surprise was lurking quietly in the family tree.

"When we looked at the history of the gene that codes for the protein, we see the signature of archaic admixture in modern day Sub-Saharan African populations," says researcher Omer Gokcumen.

In less clinical terms, it means our ancient ancestors did a bit more than catch up for a friendly chat with another group of humans at some point in history.

We're used to seeing archaic admixtures when it comes to multiple trysts between humans and Neanderthals, who interbred on multiple occasions over many tens of thousands of years across Europe and into Asia.

The same goes for the Denisovans, who co-existed with both humans and Neanderthals before continuing on their migration into the east.

Signs of this kind of mingling has left traces of lost human tribes and migrations in our respective genomes, so it isn't surprising to find we inherited a gene from another group of humans.

The fact that the MUC7 gene in Neanderthals and Denisovans resembles the more common variation in modern humans does pose an intriguing mystery.

"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," says Gokcumen.

'Ghost humans' sounds pretty awesome, we must admit. But before we start thinking of ancient ninja-like hominins leaping through the Palaeolithic shadows, it simply means nobody has a clue where the gene came from.

"This unknown human relative could be a species that has been discovered, such as a subspecies of Homo erectus, or an undiscovered hominin. We call it a 'ghost' species because we don't have the fossils," says Gokcumen.

Whatever these ghosts might have been (we still say ancient ninjas), the interbreeding probably took place roughly 150,000 years ago, a good 1.5 to 2 million years after they split away to start their own band.

To put it into some perspective, we probably parted ways with the ancestors of the Neanderthals about 400,000 years ago, though still stayed in touch over the millennia for the occasional casual booty-call.

Which going by the MUC7 discovery, is not all that uncommon.

"It seems that interbreeding between different early hominin species is not the exception – it's the norm," says Gokcumen.

We've all said goodbye to an ex, promising it'll be the last time, only to catch up again later for romance. This has to be the first time we have evidence that our ancestors not only swapped spit, but also kept it.

This research was published in Molecular Biology and Evolution.

Thomas Wheeler, CEO of the Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company, and his wife were driving along an interstate highway when he noticed that their car was low on gas. Wheeler got off the highway at the next exit and soon found a rundown gas station with just one gas pump. He asked the lone attendant to fill the tank and check the oil, then went for a little walk around the station to stretch his legs.

As he was returning to the car, he noticed that the attendant and his wife were engaged in an animated conversation. The conversation stopped as he paid the attendant. But as he was getting back into the car, he saw the attendant wave and heard him say, “It was great talking to you.”

As they drove out of the station, Wheeler asked his wife if she knew the man. She readily admitted she did. They had gone to high school together and had dated steadily for about a year.

“Boy, were you lucky that I came along,” bragged Wheeler. “If you had married him, you’d be the wife of a gas station attendant instead of the wife of a chief executive officer.”

“My dear,” replied his wife, ‘if I had married him, he’d be the chief executive officer, and you’d be the gas station attendant.”

Pentagon Looses Track of $6.5 Trillion Embezzled “Unaccounted Funds” at Expense of US Tax Payers

http://www.globalresearch.ca/pentagon-looses-track-of-6-5-trillion-embezzled-unaccounted-funds-at-expense-of-us-tax-payers/5600425

Catherine Austin Fitts just published documentation of Department of Defense (DOD) official audit reports from 1998 that acknowledge “losing track” of $6.5 trillion, along with Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) admission of “losing” over $100 billion. This is euphemistically termed “unaccounted,” and literally means that DOD agrees they received these funds, agrees the funds are gone, and then claims to not have records of where the money went.

$6.5 trillion means how much now?

~$65,000 per US average household, based upon ~$50,000 annual income. This means if your household’s annual income is ~$100,000, your family was looted ~$130,000.
Embezzling a billion dollars from a US military project 6,500 times.
Embezzling a billion dollars of our tax money every day for 18 years (that’s $10 from every US household everyday).

You may recall that DoD’s claims of trillions of our tax dollars somehow going missing isn’t new, and reported as $2.3 trillion by Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld on September 10, 2001 as “a matter of life and death” the day before a claimed airplane bulls-eyed into the Pentagon’s accounting department, killing the very accountants tasked to find the “missing” money.
