My, what big teeth and strange bones you have. Scientists discover a creature that roamed south of the equator 66 million years ago
Sixty-six million years ago, before the age of dinosaurs came to a fiery close, most mammals were puny and shrew-like. Which means a newly described Madagascar critter, though the size of a groundhog, was a giant of its day. And it packed a titan’s worth of oddities into its 7-pound frame.

The ancient animal’s fossils, the oldest mammal skeleton found in the Southern Hemisphere, show teeth and bones unlike anything seen before or since. “It’s a game-changer,” said Ohio University paleontologist Patrick M. O’Connor, who was not a part of the study. Though the researchers found a single skeleton, O’Connor said its remarkable preservation let scientists analyze the mammal in ways they previously “could only dream of."

An international team of scientists, including researchers in Madagascar and the United States, described the animal in the journal Nature on Wednesday. They named it Adalatherium hui — the first name, its genus, translates to “crazy beast”; the second, the species name, is in honor of the deceased mammalian scientist Yaoming Hu.

Adalatherium helps fill in the gaps of mammalian evolution that occurred during the time of the dinosaurs. Scientists know quite a bit about mammals from the Northern Hemisphere, especially China, O’Connor said. But that knowledge vanishes south of the equator.

Until 180 million years ago, the familiar continents of the Southern Hemisphere were mashed together in a landmass known as Gondwana. The mammals that lived there, which scientists call gondwanatherians, were known only from scattered fragments of jaw, teeth and a lone skull. Until this discovery. (...)

The adversity that this creates for the targeted groups eventually causes them to resist and rise up in tenacity and determination and accomplishment. And at some point throughout history, the targeted almost always become the targeters, and then those people will eventually rise up in defiance. Adversity is a primary driver of longterm human development and achievement through the ages."

Fossil ape hints at how walking on two feet evolved
Approximately 11.6-million-year-old fossils reveal an ape with arms suited to hanging in trees but human-like legs, suggesting a form of locomotion that might push back the timeline for when walking on two feet evolved.

Line graph. Americans’ opinions of God’s role in the origin and development of human beings, since 1982.

The latest findings
, from a June 3-16 Gallup poll, have not changed significantly from the last reading in 2017. However, the 22% of Americans today who do not believe God had any role in human evolution marks a record high dating back to 1982. This figure has changed more than the other two have over the years and coincides with an increasing number of Americans saying they have no religious identification.

As many as 47% and as few as 38% of Americans have taken a creationist view of human origins throughout Gallup's 37-year trend. Likewise, between 31% and 40% of U.S. adults have attributed humans' development to a combination of evolution and divine intervention over the same period.

Closest-known ancestor of today’s Native Americans found in Siberia
Indigenous Americans, who include Alaska Natives, Canadian First Nations, and Native Americans, descend from humans who crossed an ancient land bridge connecting Siberia in Russia to Alaska tens of thousands of years ago. But scientists are unclear when and where these early migrants moved from place to place. Two new studies shed light on this mystery and uncover the most closely related Native American ancestor outside North America.

Humans Are Still Mating with Neandertals
A Valentine’s Day meditation on why bright women sometimes gravitate to not-so-bright men
(...) But sometimes women marry up (the lady Neandertal bedding H. sapiens), and sometimes women marry down (the “wise one” female falling in love with the Neandertal). Psychologists have terms for this behavior of selecting mates outside one’s own group: “hypergamy” and “hypogamy,” for marrying up or down, respectively, but as with most technical jargon, the scholarly vocab contributes little. The question is, why do women do it?

We needn’t dwell on marrying up—gold digging everyone understands—but marrying down is another matter. What do women see in the dumb but lovable Neandertals they pick today and in the prehistoric mating game 100,000 years ago? This question is especially important now, because women are making the Neandertal choice more now than ever, and the trends are likely to continue into the future. (...)


 
You are underestimating pure physical attraction and ancient echoes of the strong male provider who fights for the tribe and is a protector.  At the beginning of relationships, the physical and chemical component is the driving factor.  In healthy long term relationships, the focus turns to friendship, compatibility, shared values and character.   Naturally you would assume there are no positive aspects for those males who still exhibit those qualities and deem it pure derogatory and irrational for any woman to be attracted to one such as this.  Now, there are also many women who find serial killers attractive, but I do believe that is a different discussion.....
