Nomad Scythian herders roamed vast areas spanning the Central Asian steppes during the Iron Age, approximately from the 9th to the 1st century BCE (Before Common Era). These livestock pastoralists, who lived on wagons covered by tents, left their mark in the history of warfare for their exceptional equestrian skills. They were among the first to master mounted riding and to make use of composite bows while riding. A new study published in Science led by Professor Ludovic Orlando and involving 33 international researchers from 16 universities, now reveals the suite of traits that Scythian breeders selected to engineer the type of horse that best fit their purpose.

I once lived in a London apartment with five other girls, one of whom made "fudge" once a week: marshmallows and chocolate chips melted in the microwave and spread into a baking dish. The girls would come home punchdrunk on cheap vodka and British accents and hack at the congealed mess with forks, fingers, whatever. These dishes sat in the kitchen for weeks, faux-fudge finding a home in a plastic bowl, a wok, whatever was clean, until it wasn't clean, none of it, and I lost my mind a bit and piled all the dirty dishes and orphaned socks and dog-eared books in front of the door of the offending roommate while she slept and then didn't speak to her for the rest of the three-month stay.

Scientology has wrecked Jennifer Lopez ’s family — with the cult leaving her father flat broke and homeless! Radar has learned David Lopez — a devout Scientologist for over 30 years — claimed to have given “hundreds of thousands” of dollars to the shady religion, but refuses to leave it! David claimed he fell into their trap, but he hasnt been to the church in FIVE YEARS since giving them all his cash! A well-placed Scientology source alleged: “The church will bleed you dry of everything you’ve ever owned, loved and cherished. “They are ruthless — and if they want to keep you in their grips, they will. It takes a lot of nerve, and usually help from someone on the outside, to leave. David once lived in a million-dollar home in Pasadena, Calif. But the financial hardships caused by Scientology forced him to move to a cheaper residence in the suburb of Azusa with his current wife, Carla Padilla, he said.

" "I personally agree with that—I think that to be turfed out of where you live and where you've lived for hundreds of years is wrong," Waters said to raucous applause and a few cheers of "I agree" from the crowd at the Times event. Waters statement that he has "nothing against Jewish people" is at odds with his past actions, such as when he flew a giant pig emblazoned with the Star of David and Nazi imagery over a 2013 concert. The stunt led to Waters being labeled as "an open hater of Jews" by the Simon Wiesenthal Center, which explained that Waters was using "a classic disgusting medieval anti-Semitic caricature widely used by both Nazi and Soviet propaganda to incite hatred against Jews." Waters has previously compared playing shows in Israel, which he describes as an "ethnic cleansing and the systematic racist apartheid Israeli regime," to playing in Nazi-controlled territory during World War II.

An unmanned NASA spacecraft has survived its plunge between the rings of Saturn and, after briefly going dark for the flyby, is communicating again with Earth, the US space agency said Thursday. Cassini skimmed closer than any previous spacecraft to the sixth planet from the Sun, and lived to tell the tale, sending back a signal that arrived early Thursday at 0656 GMT, about 20 hours after the crossing took place. "No spacecraft has ever been this close to Saturn before. We could only rely on predictions, based on our experience with Saturn's other rings, of what we thought this gap between the rings and Saturn would be like," said Cassini project manager Earl Maize of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. "I am delighted to report that Cassini shot through the gap just as we planned and has come out the other side in excellent shape.

Now, thanks to VR, he takes you on a stirring tour of Majdanek Concentration Camp where he was interned, and where his parents and twin sister were killed. The experience is modeled by co-creator Ari Palitzs recollection of visiting Dachau. An older gentleman had been arguing with one of the custodian. When I approached him, he explained that much of it was a reconstruction and that it was his job to make sure that people understood that what happened here was real, he remembers. Theres so much to be said about seeing the space, noticing the details like scratches in the railcar , and having someone who lived it by your side to make it become tangible. The team endeavored to do just that. They followed Gutter on what he vowed would be his last visit to the site with a custom stereoscopic rig, created HDR photogrammetric scans using tens of thousands of photographs, and spent five months accurately re-creating the concentration camp in 3D.

With Catastrophe ,however, the leads are married with two kids, and the discomfort stems from the kind of lived-in tensions that flare up when two peopleknoweach otherso intimately they almost resent each other for the invasion. Married life is well-trod territory for television, but what distinguishes it in this case is Catastrophes stomach-sinking realism.

When long-lived websites close down, they often give little notice, sending archivists scrambling to rescue its work for posterity. About.com, the venerable topic-mining hive abruptly put to death, seems to be a counter-example: a faceless mountain of bland, undifferentiated, half-plagiarized content that no-one seems sad to see vanish . Even its own CEO is plainly contemptuous of it. That’s why Vogel tells Business Insider he’s going to shut the site down as of May 2nd. "I got a phone call from Joey Levin, who is the CEO of IAC [About.com Group’s parent company]. He asked, 'What do you think of About.com?'" Vogel told BI. "My answer — in perfect arrogance — was 'I don't.' Who thinks of About.com? Nobody." But not all of About.com is going away necessarily. Vogel says he will take parts of the website and turn them into separate niche verticals, then announce a new name for the overarching brand at a conference in New Orleans.
