More Evidence that Neanderthals Were Fully Human

first_imgDr Jerry Bergman, professor, author and speaker, is a frequent contributor to Creation-Evolution Headlines. See his Author Profile for his previous articles. by Dr Jerry BergmanFor over a century, Neanderthals were considered the evolutionary ancestors of modern humans. The leading biology textbooks pictured Neanderthals as the missing link between apes and modern man.1 These misleading illustrations no doubt convinced many thousands to accept human evolution.Early textbook portrays Neanderthal man in between Java man, now shown to be a forgery, and modern man. From Benjamin Gruenberg. 1924. Elementary Biology. Boston: Ginn. P. 495.Put a suit on a Neanderthal and most people wouldn’t notice the difference.The latest evidence that Neanderthals are fully modern humans, and simply another ethnic group, is a study of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). The mtDNA is the DNA in organelles found in most every cell that converts food calories into energy in the form of ATP for cellular use. The researchers sequenced the mtDNA from a Neanderthal femur, found in a cave, that scientists claim lived about 100,000 years ago in southwest Germany.2 They found that this type of DNA, which is inherited only from the mother, closely resembled that of early modern humans. Unfortunately, the researchers, in an attempt to cling to their Darwinian story, wildly speculate thestartling conclusion: A female member of the lineage that gave rise to Homo sapiens in Africa mated with a Neandertal male more than 220,000 years ago—much earlier than other known encounters between the two groups. Her children spread her genetic legacy through the Neandertal lineage, and in time her African mtDNA completely replaced the ancestral Neandertal mtDNA.3BBC special makes Neanderthals look primitive, stupid, and dirty.These findings were so radical that critics wrote “it will take more than one genome to prove. It’s a nice story that solves a cool mystery—how did Neandertals end up with mtDNA more like that of modern humans.” The researchers suggested nuclear DNA from Neandertals and another race called the Denisovans, an extinct subspecies of human in the genus Homo, were close kin. The researchers also speculate that their lineage split from ours more than 600,000 years ago.Early textbook places Neanderthals between Java man (now known to be a hoax) and modern man. From Benjamin Gruenberg. 1924. Elementary Biology. Boston: Ginn. p. 493.The problem with these DNA studies is that DNA is not a stable molecule, and in the cell body it has to be constantly maintained and repaired or it rapidly deteriorates. When the animal is no longer alive, DNA is no longer being repaired, thus breaks apart. Furthermore, it requires what is called a clean lab (an enormously expensive system, thus rarely used, to insure very little contamination occurs) to reduce contamination. A problem is that often modern DNA gets into the DNA sequenced in the lab. People have both DNA and DNAase (the enzyme that chops up DNA) on their skin and even in their breath, thus contamination is a major problem.Having worked in a research lab sequencing DNA, I can relate to these problems and the difficulty of reducing them. This could be one reason why “the Neandertal mtDNA from these samples posed a mystery: It was not like Denisovans’ and was closely related to that of modern humans—a pattern at odds with the ancient, 600,000-year divergence date.”4Artists have long portrayed Neanderthals as brutes, but click to read Phys.org revision.Nonetheless, we have much other evidence proving that the Neanderthals were just another family of humans, and the mtDNA study gives credibility to the conclusion that Neanderthal mtDNA, which is inherited only from the mother, closely resembled that of early modern humans.1.

New drive to fight polio in Africa

first_imgMore than 85 million children under the age of five in West and Central Africa will receive polio vaccinations. (Image: www.academic.sun.ac.za)A massive campaign to eradicate a year-long polio epidemic in West and Central Africa kicked off on 6 March, according to global health bodies.The organisations, joining forces as the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI), are hoping to immunise more than 85-million children under the age of five in 19 West and Central African countries. GPEI includes governments, the World Health Organisation (WHO), Rotary International, the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention and Unicef.The campaign kicked off in Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Guinea, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Senegal and Sierra Leone – countries that have experienced polio outbreaks in the last six months – as well as in Nigeria, Ghana, Benin, Central African Republic, Gambia, Cape Verde and Guinea Bissau.Vaccinations in Niger, Togo and Cote d’Ivoire will be done at a later date due to impending elections in those states.The scope of the new campaign is significant because previous attempts in 2009 failed to reach enough children, and so the outbreak persisted.Over 400 000 volunteers and health workers from different organisations have been called on to administer two drops of the oral polio vaccine (OPV) to each child in the 19 countries on 6 March. The “dedicated army” will work for about 12 hours flat, going to every household on either foot, bicycle, car, boat or motorcycle.“With better coverage that leaves no child unvaccinated, these campaigns can succeed in making West and Central Africa polio-free,” Unicef regional director Dr Gianfranco Rotigliano said in a statement released on 4 March.“Hundreds of volunteers from our Red Cross and Red Crescent National Societies will ensure that polio drops reach every last child,” said Anders Naucler, health coordinator for the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies in West and Central Africa. “That is our challenge and that will be the measure of our success.”Building immunityVaccinations will be repeated in the 19 countries on 24 April, but children in Burkina Faso, Guinea, Liberia, Mauritania, Senegal and Sierra Leone – where the recent outbreaks have occurred – will receive an additional dose on 26 March as part of a new Short Interval Additional Dose strategy “that has proven successful in rapidly building population immunity where needed”, according to Unicef.The new campaign is an aspect of an ongoing initiative to fight the epidemic that broke out in Nigeria in 2008. It then spread to its neighbouring countries, which were previously polio-free, and to Central Africa, said GPEI.After battling to contain the spread, health organisations, working with health ministries in the affected countries, introduced new approaches which include a scheme to monitor how many children have been reached, better training for vaccinators and appropriate use of experienced staff.Dr Luis Gomes Sambo, WHO regional director for Africa, said the campaign shows Africa’s determination to be free of polio. “From the top leadership to local district administrators in every country we are each accountable to the African child. [We have] to vaccinate every child and achieve high coverage.”Funding from RotaryRotary International, which boasts about 1.2-million volunteers worldwide, has donated US$30-million (R223-million) to fund the campaign.“We are proud to have provided the funding necessary for the March rounds and we call on others to play their part in making Africa polio-free by providing funding necessary for more high-coverage campaigns,” said Ambroise Tshimbalanga-Kasongo, who chairs the organisation’s Africa Regional PolioPlus Committee.last_img read more

Famous Brands steps up in Nigeria

first_img16 September 2013 South African food service group Famous Brands has acquired a 49% stake in Nigerian company UAC Restaurants (UACR), whose flagship Mr Bigg’s brand is Africa’s largest food franchise outside of South Africa. Famous Brands announced the deal with UACR parent company UAC of Nigeria on Monday, without disclosing the amount involved. UACR owns 165 franchised restaurants across Nigeria, 57 of which are in Lagos and 14 in Abuja. The company also has a small logistics and manufacturing component. Mr Bigg’s quick-service restaurants boast an extensive product offering ranging from pastries and other snacks to burgers and hot meals, and a huge loyal customer base – around 100 000 customers visit the brand’s restaurants daily. “Whilst we have traded in Nigeria for the past 11 years through a combination of master license and franchise agreements, this transaction catapults us to a completely different level, enabling us to meaningfully expand our presence in this burgeoning, currently low consumption per capita organised food service market,” Famous Brands chief executive Kevin Hedderwick said in a statement. “It also underlines our ambitious and deliberate plans to grow our business outside of South Africa.” The joint venture delivers compelling benefits for both parties, Hedderwick said, with UACR bringing to it a formidable brand, local expertise and existing franchisees, as well as a nationwide distribution network and Lagos-based manufacturing infrastructure. “In exchange, Famous Brands will add value to the business through our expertise in managing intellectual property, growing brands and optimising supply chain operations and efficiencies.” UAC Group CEO Larry Ettah said Nigeria was an attractive destination for quick-service restaurants, with robust economic growth pushing up income levels and a youthful middle class expected to increase to 35% of the population in 2015 compared to 30% in 2009. Continued political and macro-economic stability, coupled with growth-friendly policies, had resulted in an increasingly supportive business environment, Ettah said. “In addition, the country continues to experience an improvement in efficiency, particularly in the distribution and manufacturing sectors. This is attracting positive interest from foreign investors with a long-term view of the opportunities.” SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Harden’s triple-double lifts Rockets past Hornets

first_imgMOST READ CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S. Tagalog NPA Of course, the Rockets are known for their long-distance shooting.This was the 15th time in NBA history a team has attempted at least 50 3-pointers. The Rockets account for 11 of those — all since the start of last season.“We are going to take them. If that is what is available and it’s a good shot then everybody has the green light,” D’Antoni said. “Maybe one or two guys shouldn’t shoot them, but when we pass them up guys get mad at each other. So we’re taking them.”Harden admitted as much.“We’re going to continue to tell everyone to shoot the ball,” Harden said. “We create opportunities in space, shoot it. Luc (Mbah a Moute) passed up a couple. PJ Tucker passed up a couple, even when Chris (Paul) gets back he’s got to get used to shooting the ball more than he ever has. It’s going to take some time but the more games we get under our belt, they’ll get a feel for it.”ADVERTISEMENT CHARLOTTE, NC – OCTOBER 27: James Harden #13 of the Houston Rockets and Dwight Howard #12 of the Charlotte Hornets watch on during their game at Spectrum Center on October 27, 2017 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The Hornets started the second half on an 8-0 run but could never get the lead and the Rockets pulled away in the fourth quarter.Kemba Walker led the Hornets with 26 points, and Dwight Howard had another strong game with 19 points and 16 rebounds against his former team. It’s the fifth straight game Howard has recorded at least 15 rebounds, a new Hornets record.TIP-INSRockets: Outscored the Hornets 29-16 in the second quarter and held the Hornets to 4 of 22 shooting from the field. … Paul, Nene and Trevor Ariza did not play due to injuries.Hornets: Shot 31.3 percent from the field in the first half. … Howard recorded his 670th career double-double. … Nic Batum, Cody Zeller, Michael Carter-Williams, Treveon Graham and Julyan Stone did not play due to injuries.FOULING HOWARD:Howard’s poor free throw shooting — he was 5 of 15 — cost the Hornets points and momentum.
