Ancient Mayan bones uncovered in Mexico at world's largest underwater cave

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 08:02:04 -0500

(image) Archaeologists exploring the world's biggest flooded cave in Mexico have discovered ancient human remains at least 9,000 years old and the bones of animals who roamed the earth during the last Ice Age. A group of divers recently connected two underwater caverns in eastern Mexico to reveal what is believed to be the biggest flooded cave on the planet, a discovery that could help shed new light on the ancient Maya civilization. The Yucatan peninsula is studded with monumental relics of the Maya people, whose cities drew upon an extensive network of sinkholes linked to subterranean waters known as cenotes. Researchers say they found 248 cenotes at the 347-km (216-mile) cave system known as Sac Actun, near the beach resort of Tulum. Of the 200 archaeological sites they have discovered there, around 140 are Mayan. This mask of the Mayan god of trade is just one of the artefacts uncovered at the huge underwater Sac Actun cave in Quinta Roo state, Mexico Credit: HO/AFP   Some cenotes acquired particular religious significance to the Maya, whose descendants continue to inhabit the region. Apart from human remains, they also found bones of giant sloths, ancient elephants and extinct bears from the Pleistocene period, Mexico's Culture Ministry said in a statement. Sistema Sac Actun The cave's discovery has rocked the archaeological world. "I think it's overwhelming. Without a doubt it's the most important underwater archaeological site in the world," said Guillermo de Anda, researcher at Mexico's National Anthropology and History Institute (INAH). A diver from the Great Mayan Aquifer project looks at human remains believed to be from the Pleistocene era De Anda is also director of the Gran Acuifero Maya (GAM), a project dedicated to the study and preservation of the subterranean waters of the Yucatan peninsula. According to the INAH, water levels rose 100 meters at the end of the Ice Age, flooding the cave system and leading to "ideal conditions for the preservation of the remains of extinct megafauna from the Pleistocene." The Pleistocene geological epoch, the most recent Ice Age, began 2.6 million years ago and ended around 11,700 years ago.

US-Russia ties will be hard to repair: Moscow

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 03:39:30 -0500

(image) Moscow on Wednesday said it would be "very difficult" to improve US-Russia relations, which have plummeted to Cold War lows on accusations of election meddling and crises in Syria and Ukraine. Deputy foreign minister Sergei Ryabkov accused the US of trying to meddle in Russia's internal affairs ahead of a presidential election next month, after Washington indicted 13 Russians for an alleged covert effort to interfere in 2016 US polls. "Paradoxically, the Americans are taking steps towards meddling in our internal affairs and exacerbating tensions in bilateral relations ahead of the presidential election" in Russia on March 18, Ryabkov told the news agency Interfax.

North Korea’s Tunnel Network Is Impressive (But Not Invulnerable)

A recent article described a newly noted but apparently abandoned railroad tunnel in North Korea, located near Dancheon on the east coast roughly midway between Hamhung and Chongjin. The lack of information regarding military usage cries out for discussion, for North Korea has used tunnels and other underground structures for a multitude of military and civil-defense purposes for decades.

Japanese 'baby factory' dad wins custody of 13 Thai surrogate children

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 05:28:01 -0500

A Bangkok court has awarded a wealthy Japanese man “sole parent” rights to 13 children he fathered through surrogate mothers, paving the way for him to take custody of them all after dismissing fears he was involved in human trafficking. Mitsutoki Shigeta, 28, the son of a rich IT tycoon, became the focus of a “baby factory” scandal in 2014 after the Thai police discovered he had fathered nine infants, aged between two weeks and two years old, who were being cared for by nannies in an upmarket Bangkok apartment. The children, along with four others also fathered by Mr Shigeta, were placed under the care of the Thai state while Interpol investigated whether it was a case of human trafficking. The police said at the time that he paid the surrogates between $9,300 and $12,500 each to carry his children. Mr Shigeta left the country as the potential scandal unfolded, but took Thailand’s Ministry of Social Development and Human Security to court to fight for custody of the children. Through his lawyer, he maintained that he simply wanted to have a large family and that he had the financial means to look after them. The Bangkok court dismissed fears of human trafficking over the surrogacy case, instead ruling that Mitsutoki Shigeta just wanted a big family. Credit: Lillian Suwanrumpha/AFP Mr Shigeta “was born in a big family and wanted the children to grow up together,” the lawyer argued, adding that he also wanted his offspring to help run the family business. Bangkok’s Central Juvenile Court on Tuesday upheld his claim after Thai officials checked that he had enough carers and facilities to give the children a good home. “For the happiness and opportunities which the 13 children will receive from their biological father, who does not have a history of bad behaviour, the court rules that all 13 born from surrogacy to be legal children of the plaintiff,” it said in a statement. The children are now set to join three other infants Mr Shigeta was granted custody of in 2015. However, the controversy surrounding his case, and another where an Australian couple were accused of abandoning a surrogate baby born with Down’s Syndrome - the 'Baby Gammy' dispute - has led to Thailand banning commercial surrogacy for foreigners. India, which once boasted a $400 million a year surrogacy industry, also banned international commercial surrogacy in 2015, over fears that vulnerable women were being exploited. Some clinics then opted to out-source business to neighbouring Nepal. From Thailand, the so-called rent-a-womb business migrated to neighbouring Cambodia, which then  barred the practice in 2016. However, the industry now appears to be flourishing in communist Laos, one of Asia’s poorest countries. Surrogacy is not illegal in the UK but it is subject to strict laws. It is a criminal offence to advertise that you are looking for a surrogate or willing to act as one. It is also an offence to broker a surrogacy deal on a commercial basis.[...]

FBI charge British engineer with murdering wife on yacht in Caribbean

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 12:14:25 -0500

  A British engineer has been charged by the FBI with murdering his wife after she disappeared at sea as they cruised around the Caribbean on a belated honeymoon. Lewis Bennett, 41, who holds dual British and Australian citizenship and is originally from Poole, Dorset, was accused of second-degree murder over the death of Isabella Hellmann, 41, on May 15 last year. He was charged in a Miami court where, according to local television station WPTV, he was also sentenced to seven months in jail for transporting valuable rare coins. After his wife's disappearance Bennett told investigators she was lost at sea when their 37ft catamaran, Surf into Summer, was struck by an unknown object near the Bahamas. According to to the FBI Bennett said he had gone below deck and left Ms Hellmann above to keep watch. He described being woken up at 1am by a jolt and the vessel was taking on water. Bennett told investigators he could not find his wife and had to abandon ship on a life raft. In an affidavit FBI special agent James Kelley said the bureau now believed Bennett "knowingly and unlawfully killed" Ms Hellmann. The FBI affidavit ​claimed ​Bennett​ ​​had damaged the inside of the boat causing it to flood. Isabella Hellman and her British husband Lewis Bennett. She went missing during a honeymoon sailing trip. When Ms Hellmann disappeared the couple, who had a daughter now aged 17 months, were sailing back from Havana, Cuba to their home in Delray Beach, Florida. The daughter was not on the boat. Bennett made an SOS call in the early hours and was later spotted by a US Coast Guard helicopter. He was rescued alone from the life raft. The search for Ms Hellmann was called off three days later and her body was never found. When Bennett was rescued nine plastic tubes of silver coins were found in the life raft. They included 158 English “Year of the Horse” one-ounce silver coins and 77 Canadian Maple Leaf coins, worth about £3,200. The coins were among a batch that had been reported stolen from another boat in St Martin the previous year. Bennett had been a crew member on that boat. According to the owner of the boat the total value of the coins stolen in 2016 was around $100,000. After he was rescued Bennett said of his wife: "She is my soulmate. I thought we were going to be together forever. "I understand why they have to investigate and that is fair enough. I have got nothing to hide. They have to do what they have to do.”​[...]

Seas to rise about a meter even if climate goals are met - study

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 11:07:54 -0500

(image) By Alister Doyle OSLO (Reuters) - Sea levels will rise between 0.7 and 1.2 meters (27-47 inches) in the next two centuries even if governments end the fossil fuel era as promised under the Paris climate agreement, scientists said on Tuesday. Early action to cut greenhouse gas emissions would limit the long-term rise, driven by a thaw of ice from Greenland to Antarctica that will re-draw global coastlines, a German-led team wrote in the journal Nature Communications. Sea level rise is a threat to cities from Shanghai to London, to low-lying swathes of Florida or Bangladesh, and to entire nations such as the Maldives in the Indian Ocean or Kiribati in the Pacific.
