Reading almost like a comic book, the stone carvings found in Göbekli Tepe were translated by scientists to reveal a series of events that changed civilization forever. Engineers from the University of Edinburgh were studying animal carvings in the Göbekli Tepe in Southern Turkey to see how they related to our constellations. While examining a particular pillar, known as the “Vulture Stone” (also referred to as pillar 43), they found descriptions of what has now been confirmed as a comet impact that occurred around 10,950 B.C. This is around the same time a … [Read more...] about Ancient stone carvings depict a massive comet strike 13,000 years ago that nearly made humans extinct

Health mental health schizophrenia Changes to the human brain as we evolved may have led to the development of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, according to a study. Scientists believe that some mental illnesses could be a side effect of how quickly our brains expanded and developed in the relatively recent evolutionary history of the past few hundred thousand years. Similarly, certain lower back, knee and foot problems are likely caused by our bodies quickly changing to walk upright. Past studies have linked the risk of developing bipolar disorder and schizophrenia to a gene which helps to transport calcium—which is important for neural activity—in the brain. But scientists don’t yet know if the mutation can trigger these neuropsychiatric diseases, the authors of a study published in the American Journal of Human Genetics wrote.

Then something strange happened — the Northern Hemisphere suddenly became much colder, and stayed that way for more than a thousand years.For some time, scientists have been debating how this major climatic event — called the ‘‘Younger Dryas’’ — happened. The question has grown more urgent: Its answer may involve the kind of fast-moving climate event that could occur again.This week, a scientific team made a new claim to having found that answer. On the basis of measurements taken off the northern coasts of Alaska and Canada in the Beaufort Sea, the scientists say they detected the signature of a huge glacial flood event that occurred around the same time.

A man convicted in the 2016 death of a Roanoke woman was given a 10-year prison sentence Friday with all but one year of that time suspended.James Kevin O’Dell, 40, of Collinsville previously pleaded no contest to voluntary manslaughter in Roanoke Circuit Court.O’Dell initially was charged with second-degree murder in the death of Erin Nicole Marley, his girlfriend of nine months, but that count was reduced as a result of his plea.Prosecutors said at his March 2 plea hearing that the circumstances of the case made it difficult to prove the exact cause of Marley’s demise, and they also agreed not to seek more than a three-year prison sentence.At Friday’s hearing, Judge Chris Clemens said that although sentencing guidelines called for a maximum punishment of six months behind bars, he intended to exceed that limit with an active term of one year.Nevertheless, O’Dell has been incarcerated since April 2017 and so has already served the time he was … [Read more...] about Voluntary manslaughter plea in Roanoke woman’s death brings boyfriend 1-year jail term
Visit The Boston Globe Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Comment on this Scroll to top of page By Chris Mooney The Washington Post April 11, 2018 The Atlantic Ocean circulation that carries warmth into the Northern Hemisphere’s high latitudes is slowing down because of climate change, a team of scientists asserted Wednesday, suggesting one of the most feared consequences is already coming to pass.The Atlantic meridional overturning circulation has declined in strength by 15 percent since the mid-20th century to a ‘‘new record low,’’ the scientists conclude in a peer-reviewed study published in the journal Nature. That’s a decrease of 3 million cubic meters of water per second, the equivalent of nearly 15 Amazon rivers.The AMOC brings warm water from the equator up toward the Atlantic’s northern reaches and cold water back down through the deep ocean. The current is partly why Western Europe enjoys temperate weather, … [Read more...] about Atlantic Ocean circulation hasn’t been this sluggish in 1,000 years. What that means for New England
