Construction work in Moscow unearths 9000-year-old flint tools

Archaeologists discovered rare flint Stone Age tools in Moscow during construction work in the downtown, reports the official website of the Moscow Mayor’s office. A flint cutter has been dated to the Neolithic era (3,000-5,000 BC), and a fragment of a flint scraper dates to the Mesolithic era (7,000 BC). These items are the most ancient tools ever found in Russia’s capital.   Flint cutters were every-day items used by Stone Age people, and the one found is in excellent condition, complete with lateral symmetrical recesses for fastening a handle made of bone, horn or wood. "This discovery is very important for archaeologists, and confirms our theory that this area was developed by humans long before streets and houses were built here," said Alexey Yemelianov, the head of Moscow’s Cultural Heritage Department. Fragment of a flint scraper. / Mos.ru Both the flint cutter and scrapper were found in a cultural layer that dates to the 16th and 17th centuries of our era, and experts surmise that these Stone Age tools came to the surface from deeper and more ancient cultural layers during building of Moscow’s earthen fortifications about 400 to 500 years ago. Yemelianov said the flint tools might be handed over to a local museum, or put on temporary display in an exhibition devoted to Moscow archeology.

Is Trump Dumping More Prosecutors?

Palaces of intrigue, under-perceived siege by political and law enforcement adversaries, tend to boil inward before they burst outward. One of the most perilous decisions for Trump is how far he will go in firing prosecutors looking into his murky dealings past and present. Already he has fired former FBI Director James Comey, who just testified before the Senate flanked by several of his loyal FBI agents in the front seats of the hearing room. Earlier, after then-President-Elect Trump assured the influential U.S. attorney in New York City, Preet Bharara, that he could keep his job, President Trump abruptly fired him in March. It seems Mr. Trump got wind of an investigation pertaining to various ill-defined, at least publicly, inquiries, tried to contact him to find out what was going on (a clear breach of ethics) and, not receiving a response, dispatched Bharara. The U.S. attorney had reported Trump’s phone call to the chief of staff of Attorney General Jeff Sessions which probably led to his undoing. New presidents often replace U.S. attorneys, who are known to harbor political ambitions within the political party that appointed them to this powerful prosecutorial position. But President Trump had an additional personal motive behind his worry about Bharara. Now Mr. Trump’s White House friends are leaking a trial balloon, or shall we call it the “nuclear option.” Can you imagine that President Trump even is considering firing Robert S. Mueller III, who is the special counsel chosen by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to lead the investigation of possible connections between Trump’s electoral campaign and Russian operatives. Mueller, a highly respected former director of the FBI, is starting to hire staff for this important inquiry – one paralleled by similar probes under the Republican controlled Senate and House Intelligence Committees. One can discern this possibility is more than a slip of the tongue by someone eager for publicity. Already, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, often a mouthpiece for Trump’s “thinking,” has tweeted that “Republicans are delusional if they think the special counsel is going to be fair,” even after praising Mueller’s integrity a few weeks earlier. The signal to fire Mueller is being trumpeted by conservative talk show hosts such as Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin and other lucrative right-wing beneficiaries of our free and public airwaves. While this latest drama of Trump’s panic unfolds, there is speculation within their ranks that Trump may fire dozens of inspectors general who investigate waste, fraud and abuse by federal agencies to which they are attached. This would be unprecedented. Inspectors General (IGs) are non-partisan, independent civil servants with traditional bi-partisan support. They return $14 to the taxpayer for every $1 they spend on their investigations. Trump looks askance on such independence and what might be found under his cabinet and agency heads. Thus far, he is not replacing open IG positions and intends to cut IG budgets. In another brazen move, the White House has insisted that executive branch agencies don’t have to respond to Congressional inquiries. A bizarre narcissism is taking hold in the White House. Get rid of anyone who can hold you to the rule of law. Have cabinet members bow and scrape the floor with their obeisance at a White House meeting as they surrender giving their independent judgement to a firing-prone president. Overseas, we have names for bosses of nations who expect such orchestrated ooze. What’s next, statues and giant pictures of Trump looking down on his subjects around the country? Trump would do well to study what happened when another president, Richard Nixon, hunkered down in 1973 and fired Archibald Cox, the special prosecutor appointed to investigate the Watergate scandal. Nixon’s attorney general, Elliot Richardson, refused to fire Cox and resigned in protest, followed by the protest resignation of Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus. It is possible that Trump may not want to wait as long as did Nixon, who acted after he received a subpoena from Cox requesting copies of taped conversations recorded in the Oval Office? Nixon’s firing of Cox generated a public firestorm of protests with millions of telegrams and calls pouring into Congress from the American people. The momentum to impeach Nixon accelerated. He quit just before the House of Representatives was to vote. Already, so early in the unfolding of Trump’s reactions, 43 percent of the people believe that Congress should begin impeachment proceedings to remove President Trump from office, with 45 percent of them opposed (according to a Quinnipiac poll). Firing a special counsel before he even gets underway, much less starts issuing subpoenas, would not sit well with even more Americans and increasing numbers of Republicans in Congress who would have preferred Mr. Pence by a large margin over Mr. Trump. Trump could quit in a fit of rage. Impeaching Trump in the House and convicting him in the Senate would get the Republicans a more stable, very conservative, former congressional colleague. Could Mike Pence, a recent governor of Indiana, be our next president? Fasten your seat belts. The wild card in the White House is sure to get wilder and seriously test our nation’s rule of law. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

So THAT'S What Those 'Ding' Sounds During Flights Are All About

If you fly, you’re likely familiar with the ding sound made when the “fasten seat belt” sign turns off, signaling you’re free to move about the cabin. But discerning ears may have noticed the ding, or chime, occurs at other times during the flight, too: Sometimes it’s a single chime long before the seat belt sign turns off, and sometimes it’s a two-toned rhythm, with a high-pitched chime followed by a low one. Other times, the sound is more like a “boing.”  Of course, these noises aren’t random. Turns out they’re all part of a carrier’s secret code for its cabin crew. Take Qantas Airways, for example.  “On our Airbus aircraft you’ll hear the ‘boing’ sound shortly after take-off ― this sound lets crew know that the landing gear is being retracted. The second boing is usually when the seat belt sign is switched off,” the airline explained in a blog post last year.  Qantas uses a single chime to alert crew when a passenger is asking for assistance at their seat. A high-low chime combination is the sound of the crew calling each other on their in-flight phone system. Three low chimes in a row signals an urgent warning from the captain, like heavy turbulence ahead.  However, that’s just Qantas. There’s no hard-and-fast rule for these sounds because each airline customizes its sound system differently, Airbus spokeswoman Kara Evanko told HuffPost.  United Airlines, for example, sounds a single chime when a passenger calls for assistance and when the fasten seat belt sign turns on. A ding-dong sound means pilots and flight attendants are calling each other on the inflight call system, spokesman Jonathan Guerin told HuffPost. On other airlines, a chime might indicate the plane has reached 10,000 feet and it’s safe to use electronic devices, commercial pilot Patrick Smith told HuffPost. It could also mean the plane is landing soon and crew should start cleaning up the cabin. Other sounds usually come from the intercom system that cabin crew share with the cockpit. “Think of it as a language between the pilots and flight attendants,” Southwest Airlines spokeswoman Cindy Hermosillo told HuffPost. On Southwest planes, a single chime means the seat belt sign has been turned off. The airline also uses high chimes, low chimes and a high-low chime combination for communication in the cabin, but declined to specify what each sound means, citing security.  Likewise, an American Airlines spokesman said he couldn’t share information about the airline’s “internal mechanisms for communication between our flight attendants and pilots.” While the true meaning of these sounds may remain secret on some carriers, it’s always helpful to learn about life in the sky if you’re a nervous flier. Next time you hear a chime on a flight, you can rest assured it’s typical crew talk. type=type=RelatedArticlesblockTitle=Related... + articlesList=58f7dbd8e4b091e58f382505,58e7d466e4b05413bfe2bb2b,59393736e4b00610547fb96f,57acc99fe4b0718404104470 -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

America’s number two ride-hailing firm

ONE firm’s bad news is often another’s good fortune. For years Lyft, an app that offers on-demand rides, was outdone by its seemingly unstoppable rival, Uber, which zoomed into new markets and grabbed a near-$70bn valuation, the largest of any private American tech firm in history. Uber does not report a share price that would register its recent troubles, which include one investigation into alleged intellectual-property theft and another into its workplace culture. But that Lyft’s market share in America has risen from 18% five months ago to 25% now (according to TXN Solutions, a data provider) is a gauge of the larger firm’s crisis. Lyft is far from a typical Silicon Valley company. Unlike Uber, it does not lust for world domination and it operates only in America. Nor does it take itself especially seriously. For years it identified its drivers by pink, fuzzy moustaches fastened to the front of cars, and encouraged riders to fist-bump their drivers and sit in the front seat (...

What Makes the F-22 and F-35 Stealth

Dave Majumdar Security, Their "skin".  While pilots of advanced fifth-generation fighters like the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor or the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter often claim the spotlight, it is the ground crews who maintain those jets’ pristine surfaces that are often the real heroes. Without proper maintenance of their skin, the signature of those advance stealth jets degrade over time—rendering them vulnerable to enemy radar. “If the pilot’s seen by radar, he can be shot down,” said Senior Airman Joshua Moon, a 192nd Fighter Wing low observables (LO) aircraft structures technician, in an Air Force release issued during the service’s Red Flag exercise in Nevada. “If he isn’t, he can do his mission, go behind enemy lines, and they’ll never even know he was there until it’s too late. Without us, he’s going to get spotted, or shot down, so lives are at risk when it comes to our job.” While regular maintainers are able to replace part or make other fixes to the aircraft, LO maintainers have the difficult job of even ensuring a fifth-generation fighter remains stealthy after repairs are completed. “Right now, something is wrong with a light panel on that jet. Since maintenance needs to get into that panel, we have to pick the radar absorbent material off and clean all the fasteners out so they can fix the light,” Moon said. “Once the light is fixed we will re-bind the coating and material again to make it 100 percent ready.” In fact, in the case of the F-22, the Air Force is very careful about knowing exactly how well the jets’ coating are performing and where exactly they can send the Raptors as a result. “We can give them very good information for what they’re going into, but if their jet isn’t performing the way they expect it to, them knowing that information doesn’t necessarily do them any good,” said Tech. Sgt. William, 1st Operations Support Squadron NCO in charge of intelligence analysis in the Air Force release. Read full article
