WSJ NEWS ALERT: Fossils From Human Forebearers Revealed

Subject: WSJ NEWS ALERT: Fossils From Human Forebearers Revealed

News Alert
from The Wall Street Journal
Sponsored by NASDAQ OMX

After 15 years of rumors, researchers in the U.S. and Ethiopia made public fossils from a 4.4-million-year-old human forebearer they say reveal that our earliest ancestors were more modern than scholars assumed and deepens the evolutionary gulf separating humankind from today's apes and chimpanzees.

The highlight of the extensive fossil trove is a female skeleton a million years older than the iconic bones of Lucy, the primitive female figure that has long symbolized humankind's beginnings.

Please act now to save the bluefin tuna

I have been following Casson Trenor's efforts to promote "Sustainable Sushi" and find his arguments most compelling. The bluefin tuna has been dangerously overfished, and I consider it no longer acceptable to order it at a sushi bar, and I have been actively encouraging sushi bars that I visit to stop serving it. Please read his latest blog post about the European Union's recent decision to NOT protect the bluefin for details on the problem and what you can do about it. And let me know what you think.

The real meaning of "rogue" - not what Sarah Palin wants us to think

Here is an article that recounts the origin of "rogue" in relation to ex-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. It's not pretty, and the facts of the matters involved are not either. My hope is that Americans are not as shallow as she appears to be.
