(Credit: Metropolitan Museum of Art ) The discovery, which includes images of mammoths and horses, confirms that a form of pointillism was used by the Aurignacian, the earliest modern human culture in Europe and adds weight to previous isolated discoveries, including a rhinoceros from the Grotte Chauvet in France, formed by the application of dozens of dots, first painted on the palm of the hand, and then transferred to the cave wall. Earlier this year, White's team reported the uncovering of a 38,000-year-old pointillist image of an aurochs or wild cow—a finding that marks some of the earliest known graphic imagery found in Western Eurasia and offers insights into the nature of modern humans during this period. Team scaled the Alps to scan prehistoric paintings Now, they have found another pointillist image—this time of a woolly mammoth—in a rock shelter of the same period known as Abri Cellier located near the previous find-site of Abri Blanchard.

If you know of any more RTK setups out there, be sure to let us know in the comments. Using an RTK GPS setup for an autonomous lawnmower is now within your or your team's grasp. If you know where the thing is in real time, writing the code and doing the mechanical engineering are problems with common and straightforward approaches. So why hasn't it been done? What are you waiting for? We're Talking Lawn CNC Maybe this will charge your capacitor banks... What happens when you combine an autonomous lawnmower and gcode? Mind-blowing awesomeness? Give your mower the ability the turn the blades on/off and you could be CNCing your grass instead of just cutting it. The picture I've painted makes sense or larger turfs where the relatively small and battery operated robomowers are less effective. With a large enough land area it becomes less reasonable to install a perimeter wire and makes the GPS setups more desirable (although there are ways to fake the perimiter wire signal which could make for an interesting GPS hacked onto an existing robot mowers).

Sweden's relations with US President Donald Trump seem to be going from bad to worse. Regardless of how accurate Trump's picture of Sweden is, the recent row, in which the Nordic country was painted as on the verge of a breakdown, may leave a serious dent in Sweden's shiny public image.

Kerbstones painted, lamp posts painted just so you know what area you are in generally. A common complaint about politicians here is how they avoid talking about day-to-day issues and instead focus on Northern Ireland's place within the UK.

This is the second piece of furniture I ever built. It's a duplicate of Gerrit Rietveld's Red Blue Chair, designed in 1919. I built mine in the early '90s, before the internet, and I found a book in the library that had a drawing very similar to the one below: From that I broke out an architect's scale and was able to reverse engineer the dimensions, then construct the chair. I was shocked at how comfortable it is, being made out of hard wood; the ergonomics are just perfect. For the frame Rietveld used beech, which I couldn't get my hands on, so I milled some Poplar down. For the seat and backrest I used the same material he had, plywood (1/2" in my case). I painted mine blue and purple because I thought it looked better. When I was building it, one thing I couldn't tell by looking at the diagram was how the seat and backrest were connected to the frame.

A refugee child walks on the stairway in a refugee housing in Waltrop, western Germany, painted with a swastika graffiti and a writing get out dogs, Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2015. (AP/Martin Meissner) (REPORT) While many are calling for a ban on the admission of refugees in several countries, some of them citing the increase in violence since their arrival as a reason to keep them out, Germany has documented just why there is an increment. According to a report recently released from Germany’s Interior Ministry, the rise in violence is not a result of refugees wreaking havoc but of anti-refugee attacks occurring in the nation. The report stated that there were more than 3,500 anti-refugee attacks in 2016, averaging about 10 per day throughout the year. This was the first year that data of this nature was collected, so it’s difficult to compare to anti-refugee acts in previous years, but the information is very telling.

What they went through is gracious. That was important to me, to go through every single day or two days. It is difficult to talk about, I know, but you painted a detailed and loving picture of your parents to anyone who was in court. Is that important as well, giving a sense of who these people were that died that day? Yes. Initially we weren't people were that died that day? Yes. I'm smiling and you think this is probably really strange but it was lovely to tell everybody about my mum and dad.
