Quotes

...Christopher Stringer, a paleoanthropologist at the Natural History Museum in London, who was not involved in the research, told BBC News. "It is close to the time I think that modern humans exited from Africa and gave rise to the populations in the rest of the world. I think that exit happened 60,000 years ago ."
The next point could actually extend to a whole lot of fishy things (including, again, fad diets) just as a general axiom. "A single study, conducted by researchers with financial interests in the product, or one quote from a scientist advocating the product, is not enough to assume that a game has been rigorously examined" the neuroscientists write
...back to Rapa Nui and admixed with them," concluded Mark Stoneking, a geneticist with Germany's Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology. "So it will be interesting to see if in further studies any signal of Polynesian, Rapa Nui ancestry can be found in South Americans."
...chromosphere is often twisting like a tornado twirling around a central magnetic tube," said De Pontieu, who is also the first author on this paper. "These twisting motions are often associated with heating to hundreds of thousands of degrees."
