They serve Thanatos, the forces of death, the dark instinct Sigmund Freud identified within human beings that propels us to annihilate all living things, including ourselves. These deformed individuals lack the capacity for empathy.
It wasn’t always this way. Prior to the current era, Americans did occasionally take to the streets. 600 Iowa farmers abducted a judge who was doing mortgage foreclosures, threatening to lynch him. The governor declared martial law, and troops...
Rare video footage taken at a wildlife park has showed that chimpanzees react to the death of a group member just like humans do when a close relative dies. Videos of 4 chimpanzees showed the animals caressing and grooming the 4th, a dying female,
Babies love a beat, according to a new study that found dancing comes naturally to infants. The research showed babies respond to the rhythm and tempo of music, and find it more engaging than speech.
This world turned upside down once existed here, on the remote island of Flores, where an international team is trying to shed light on the fossilized 18,000-year-old skeleton of a dwarf cavewoman whose discovery in 2003 was an international sensatio
The next phase of the current crisis may begin when the public begins to reassess the credibility of the monetary and fiscal measures that the Obama administration has taken in response. Interest rates at zero nor fiscal stimulus can achieve...
Newly discovered archaeological sites in India have revealed how people lived before and after the colossal Toba volcanic eruption 74,000 years ago. A potentially ground-breaking implication of the new work is that the species responsible for making
Early humans, possibly even prehuman ancestors, appear to have been going to sea much longer than anyone had ever suspected. On the Greek island of Crete, stone tools are at least 130,000 years old, which is considered strong evidence for the earlies
One of the world's oldest dialects, which traces its origins to tens of thousands of years ago, has become extinct after the last person to speak it died on a remote Indian island. Boa Sr, the 85-year-old last speaker of "Bo", was the oldest member o
Whether it's dressing like a dominatrix for Halloween, skipping around a pole-dancing pole or performing the totally un-PG hits 'Smack That' and 'Tik Tok', we suspect this nine-year-old could easily notch up more scandals than her big sis...
Archeologists have discovered a huge Mayan sculptured head in Guatemala that suggests a little-known site in the jungle-covered Peten region may once have been a significant city. The stucco sculpture, which is 10 feet wide and 11.5 feet tall, was b
Somewhere in the Sierra Nevada, a granite terrace the size of a football field holds hundreds of mysterious stone basins---one of the earliest known "factories" created by Miwok Indians to make tons of salt to trade with tribes around California.
The apes' use of tools can be surprisingly sophisticated. "For example, nut-cracking in the Bossou chimpanzee community in Guinea involves the use of a movable hammer and anvil, and sometimes the additional use of stabilizing wedges to make the anvil
Did our Neolithic ancestors turn to agriculture so that they could be sure of a tipple? The expert on identifying traces of alcohol in prehistoric sites reckons the thirst for a brew was enough of an incentive to start growing crops.
The ancient Mayans may have had enough engineering know-how to master running water, creating fountains and even toilets by controlling water pressure, scientists now suggest. Perhaps the earliest known example of the intentional creation of water
The islanders usually removed the volcanic ash before burying their dead under ashes and sand. Each grave is marked with a pottery jar decorated with intricate patterns, possibly stamped by small pieces of worked bone. The ceramic also depicts faces

Many prehistoric Australian aboriginals could have outrun world 100 and 200 meters record holder Usain Bolt in modern conditions. Some Tutsi men in Rwanda exceeded the current world high jump record of 2.45 meters during initiation ceremonies in
