white giraffe Its the fabled White Giraffe.

A researcher in Africa has finally spotted the rare white giraffe that he’s been seeking for twelve years, and he’s got a photograph to prove it.

Charles Foley, a Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS) researcher, first heard rumors of the white giraffe in 1993 when he was working in Tanzania’s Tarangire National Park doing research on savanna elephants.

Intrigued, Foley set out to find the animal, but by the next year, the sightings had stopped coming in.

Kennewick Man yielded a few tantalizing clues to his past yesterday as the team of scientists studying him wrapped up the first phase of its investigation.

The skull of the skeleton found on the bank of the Columbia River nine years ago shares common characteristics with other “paleo-Indians” of North America, said David Hunt, physical anthropologist with the Smithsonian Institution, who pieced together the skull for the first time.

As you read this, remember that this man probably never existed. The bible says he couldn’t have. Fossils are just put in the earth to test our faith. Oh yes, and Jesus killed the dinosaurs.

Cloistered around padded tables, scientists from around the country have been peering through microscopes and measuring bone fragments trying to unearth the history of an ancient skeleton found along the Columbia River.

Researchers on Sunday offered details of their first comprehensive study of the 9,000-year-old Kennewick Man, one of the oldest and most complete skeletons ever found in North America.

Think Star Trek: You are here. You want to go there. It’s just a matter of teleportation.

Thanks to lab experiments, there is growth in the number of “beam me up” believers, but there is an equal amount of disbelief, too.

Over the last few years, however, researchers have successfully teleported beams of light across a laboratory bench. Also, the quantum state of a trapped calcium ion to another calcium ion has been teleported in a controlled way.

To finish his Ph.D., Mr. Marlow is going to be analyzing the results of a survey ?about how people use their weblogs and their general communication behavior.�? To get the best results, he needs a large sample size so if you?ve got ~15 minutes or so; why not help the poor guy out??
