Bolton-Pompeo relationship hits new low as foreign policy tests mount

Washington (CNN)Long-simmering tensions between top figures on President Donald Trump’s national security team have devolved into all-out hostility, creating a deep disconnect between staffers on the National Security Council, led by John Bolton, and the rest of the administration, six people familiar with the matter said. Trump hasn’t indicated whether he minds the dispute underway among his team. In fact, he’s said in the past that he tends to enjoy when his aides are at odds with each other. But the current situation has led to a deep sense of isolation for NSC staffers working under Bolton, who are charged with coordinating foreign policy and national security options for the President. The internal rift has only added to the sense …

DNA Analysis Confirms Family Massacred By Mongol Army In 13th Century Suffered Violent Death

Genetic analysis confirms the relationship between three individuals brutally murdered during a Mongol army raid on the Russian city of Yaroslavl in 1238, lending a new deeper understanding to the events that transpired during one of the most gruesome massacres in medieval times. Batu Khan, the grandson of Genghis Khan, was tasked with invading Europe in 1235, violently killing civilians and successfully conquering all of Russia in his wake. Recent historical analyses suggest that the transition from Rus (present-day Russia) into Batu’s Golden Horde was “almost peaceful and voluntary” with “practically no major atrocities committed” – something researchers now say is almost certainly not the case. “Batu Khan’s conquest was the greatest national tragedy, surpassing any other event in cruelty …

Facebook Dating launches in the US, adds Instagram integration

Denisovans Had Fingers Indistinguishable From Modern Humans, Further Complicating Our Family Tree

The missing part of one of the most important fossils ever found has been identified, challenging ideas on modern humans’ relationship to our nearest relatives. In 2008 a finger bone was found in Denisova Cave in Siberia, and DNA extracted from it shocked anthropologists by revealing a new human relative. Beforehand, however, the bone was cut in two and sent to different laboratories. Records of these actions were lost and researchers thought the two pieces might be from different individuals. Since the cave is known to have been inhabited not only by the Denisovans, to whom it gave its name, but also Neanderthals, and one Denisovan/Neanderthal hybrid there were questions over the other fragment’s origins. Now, however, the 50,000-year-old phalanx bone has been …
