THE MISSING LINK?
New human fossil predates earliest known humans by 400,000 years
March 05, 2015
(NATIONAL) -- It was a discovery, this small piece of bone from one of our earliest ancestors, that took years of searching to stumble upon.
The fossil was found by Chalachew Seyoum, an Arizona State University (ASU) student from Ethiopia. “Honestly, it was an exciting moment,” said Seyoum. “I had good experience in field surveying and knew where potential sediments are. I climbed up a little plateau and found this specimen right on the edge of the hill.”

His answer was no, they do not. But a new report being issued by the U.S. Justice Department about that department's activities seems to say that "no" was a wildly incorrect answer to such a question.

(NATIONAL) -- When you get fed up with all the greed and narcissism that seems to rule our country, a good way to restore your faith in humankind is to reflect on the generosity of people like Ron Read — a philanthropist from Dummerston, Vermont.
Read was no splashy, self-celebrating, David Koch-Michael Dell-Richard DeVos type. He’s not the kind of guy whose “altruism” depends on how prominently his name gets displayed on the facilities he endows.
