Early Briton had dark skin and blue eyes

by Lacey Stephens
Media playback is unsupported on your device Media captionDNA shows early Brit had dark skin A cutting-edge scientific analysis shows that a Briton from 10,000 years ago had dark brown skin and blue eyes. Researchers from London's Natural History Museum extracted DNA from Cheddar Man, Britain's oldest complete skeleton, which was discovered in 1903. University College London researchers then used the subsequent genome analysis for a facial reconstruction. It underlines the fact that the lighter skin characteristic of modern Europeans is a relatively recent phenomenon. No prehistoric Briton of this age had previously had their genome analysed.

(CNN)This cutie with a contagious smile is 18-month-old Lucas Warren and on Wednesday he made history: He's the first child with Down syndrome to become Gerber's "Spokesbaby of the year" in its 91-year history. "We hope this opportunity sheds light on the special needs community and educates people that with acceptance and support, individuals with special needs have the potential to change the world -- just like our Lucas," his mom said.

Mexico has sent two Alpine skiers to the Winter Games in PyeongChang and their outfits, a tribute to the ‘Day of the Dead’, are pretty sweet. They were designed by Prince Hubertus von Hohenlohe, 59, who designed them and has represented Mexico in six Winter Games. Prince you say? That’s right. According to the Washington Post, his family reigned over a principality in what is now the northeastern of Baden-Württemberg in Germany until the early 19th century. Although he spends most of his time in Europe, he is eligible to compete for Mexico because he was born there. At the [...]

Ok, wait, literally THREE DAYS AGO the Spice Girls were all reunited This isn't the first time we've learned that the Girls' long-discussed reunion tour was supposedly going to become a real thing, and it's also not the first time that Victoria has flat out turned down the reunion after earlier indicating it might happen. But this time seems especially… sudden??? Just days after meeting with the other four Spice Girls and really making everyone get all excited about the reunion, Victoria nixed all of it with this simple little statement on Saturday (below): "I'm not going on tour. The [...]

Each new breaking news situation is an opportunity for trolls to grab attention, provoke emotions, and spread propaganda. The Russian government knows this. Fake-news manufacturing teenagers in Macedonia know this. Twitter bot creators know this. And thanks to data-gathering operations from groups like the Alliance for Securing Democracy and RoBhat Labs, the world knows this. In the wake of Wednesday’s Parkland, Florida, school shooting, which resulted in 17 deaths, troll and bot-tracking sites reported an immediate uptick in related tweets from political propaganda bots and Russia-linked Twitter accounts. Hamilton 68, a website created by Alliance for Securing Democracy, tracks Twitter [...]

The Science of Why Swearing Physically Reduces Pain

by Lacey Stephens
Comments are off for this post.
For a very long time, conventional wisdom held that swearing was not a useful response to pain. Many psychologists believed that swearing would actually make pain feel worse, thanks to a cognitive distortion known as catastrophizing. When we catastrophize we leap to the conclusion that the bad thing that is currently happening is the absolute worst thing. We’re usually catastrophizing when we say things like, “This is terrible! I just can’t!” Swearing was thought to reinforce that feeling of helplessness. But this troubled Richard Stephens, a psychologist and author of Black Sheep: The Hidden Benefits of Being Bad, who wondered [...]

New DNA nanorobots successfully target and kill off cancerous tumors

Science fiction no more — in an article out today in Nature Biotechnology, scientists were able to show tiny autonomous bots have the potential to function as intelligent delivery vehicles to cure cancer in mice. These DNA nanorobots do so by seeking out and injecting cancerous tumors with drugs that can cut off their blood supply, shriveling them up and killing them. “Using tumor-bearing mouse models, we demonstrate that intravenously injected DNA nanorobots deliver thrombin specifically to tumor-associated blood vessels and induce intravascular thrombosis, resulting in tumor necrosis and inhibition of tumor growth,” the paper explains. DNA nanorobots are a somewhat [...]

Starman has gone dark

Starman and his space Tesla have sent their last selfie from Earth orbit, Elon Musk announced. The car and its mannequin driver (in working SpaceX spacesuit) launched yesterday atop the Falcon Heavy rocket will eventually escape Earth orbit and travel outwards through the solar system — but not in a hurry. Elon Musk posted the “last pic” of Starman and on Instagram, though it’s such a nice frame that one suspects it’s probably the best of its last final minutes. At a press conference yesterday, he prepared us all for the inevitable shutdown of the most strangely fascinating live stream [...]
