Walking With Lucy | California Academy of Sciences

Appearing next to a full—scale recreation of the famous “Lucy” skeleton (Australopithecus afarensis) in Tusher African Hall, this computer animation compares the distinctive gaits of a chimpanzee, A. afarensis, and modern human, highlighting the trait of upright walking that the latter two share.

That last post just reminded me of how thankful I am that Canada’s tuition’s are fairly tame by comparison to some US universities.

Granted the university I’m planning to go to isn’t world class like Yale, but its tuition per semester is only around $3000-4000; so around $9400 per year. I’ve seen many universities in the US that at the cheapest are 1.5-2X higher than that, and the most prestigious schools are tens of thousands more. o.o

Its still not cheap by any means (After 4 years and all expenses covered), I’ll probably be in debt at least $30K (adding onto my current debt of $15K or so).

Yeah, I never thought I’d spend over $50,000 dollars on boxed wine, cheap vodka, netflix, and used textbooks but here I am.

The Aterian represents one of the multiple facets of the Middle Stone Age (MSA) and has become increasingly important in the context of understanding modern human origins. In this paper, we present the results of our study on the Aterian in the Jebel Gharbi, North-Western Libya, from a regional point perspective. A total of 1567 lithic objects were analysed for this work from twelve different Aterian assemblages. The results of this analysis show a wide range of economic behaviour, possibly suggesting different site functions, within the three main areas (Ain Zargha, Jefara and Wadi Ghan). It is unlikely thatany of these assemblages represents a residential site. Instead, we argue that the assemblages in the study are more likely to be the result of a logistic land use. Technologically, they exhibit all the distinctive features of the Aterian technocomplexes: coexistence between Levallois and blade technology, presence of tanged pieces and bifacial foliates, as well as of Upper Palaeolithic” tools, together with a majority of sidescrapers and endscrapers. Only a combination of these features, and certainly not one of them alone,can characterize an assemblage as Aterian” (read more/open access).

A Brief Overview of the Last 10 Years of Major Late Pleistocene Discoveries in the Old World: Homo floresiensis, Neanderthal, and Denisovan

  • by Fernanda Neubauer

In the last ten years, new fossil, archaeological, and genetic data have significantly altered our understanding of the peopling of the Old World in the Late Pleistocene. Scholars have long been challenged to define humanity’s place in evolution and to trace our phylogeny. Differences in the skeletal morphology of hominin fossils have often led to the naming of distinct new species, but recent genetic findings have challenged the traditional perspective by demonstrating that modern human DNA contains genes inherited from Neanderthals and Denisovans, thus questioning their status as separate species. The recent discovery of Homo floresiensis from Flores Island has also raised interesting queries about how much genetic and morphological diversity was present during the Late Pleistocene. This paper discusses the nature and implications of the evidence with respect to Homo floresiensis, Neanderthals, and Denisovans and briefly reviews major Late Pleistocene discoveries from the last ten years of research in the Old World and their significance to the study of human evolution” (read more/open access).

A beautifully preserved tooth of the sauropod dinosaur, Camarasaurus collected at the “Salt & Pepper Quarry” near Dinosaur, CO.  It probably came from a juvenile of the species and is still mounted on it’s original matrix for display.
