Hunter-gatherers who lived between 15,300 and 11,200 years
ago cooked freshwater or marine animals in ceramic vessels.
The highly contentious proposal to map the entire output of a human brain just got a huge boost yesterday. Researchers at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in Virginia published the first brain activity map (BAM) of any creature ever recorded. With this initial achievement, the brush has been cleared so that scaling this capability up to larger animals — and to humans — is no longer unimaginable.
Thousands of litres of whisky have been flushed down the drain by accident at a bottling plant in Dumbarton.
It is understood the mix-up happened at Chivas Brothers during the night shift on Tuesday while equipment was being cleaned.
Scientists predict 14-24% reduction in fish size by 2050 as ocean temperatures increase
It's nice that someone is out there keeping up to date on this... now if we just had it for Morgan Freeman.
Paul Worstelling's Tuna. Pacific Bluefin Tuna - 107inches long - over 600lb's - 2hour fight on 130lb - Paul was working with NZ Fisheries whom at last message he was meeting at the wharf. They requested a large specimen to collect ageing & DNA data from. They will also check radiation levels to establish migration routes. Lots more info to come over the weekend! Cheers CW — at Greymouth
This video has stunned scientists around the world as this bird thinks critically just like a human to catch fish. Give a fish a piece of bread and it will won't be hungry for a day but teach it to fish...well you get it.
Brainy Bird Uses Bread as Bait While Fishing. That time a bird pooped on you while you just happened to be wearing a new cashmere sweater? That might not have been an accident. We already know some birds are smart enough to speak a bit and even perform basic tasks, but this somewhat frighteningly intelligent bird has figured out how to use bread as bait in order to catch fish. Just watch the cold, calculating patience and then wonder what other breakthroughs birds might be thinking up during all that downtime. It's probably only a matter of time before birds and dolphins team up and enslave us all.
A new species of fish with a rather unique feature has been discovered in Vietnam's Mekong Delta. The Phallostethus cuulong is just 2 centimetres long, and the males have their reproductive organs on their chin.
A 5-foot-9-inch woman tournament fishing in Hawaii waters fought a 12-foot marlin more than four hours before getting it on her team's boat and weighing it at more than a half-ton — a would-be world record.
These men in Russia decided that hand grenades were a better option for catching fish over the rod and reel but their attempt blew up in their face with the bomb going off as it hit the water right next to the boat.
Scientists have identified cells in the nose of trout that respond to magnetism, offering a biological explanation for how animals orient themselves and find their way.
The discovery - and particularly the new method that enabled it - opens up avenues for all sorts of futuristic applications, including miniaturised GPS systems or gene therapies that would restore sight, hearing or smell to people who have lost those senses.
