I traced this NYT article back to the source: http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2010/07/07/science/AP-EU-SCI-First-Northern-Europeans.html?_r=1&ref=science

and noticed that the NYT article seems to imply its talking about "modern" man, homo sapiens sapiens. The Nature mag. article makes it clear. the "humans" the NYT is talking about are homo heidlebergensis or homo neanderthalis, not modern humans. At some point, the experts seemed to have decided that all in the "homo" family are "human". In my opinion, that would include individuals you wouldn't want to introduce as family, including homo habilis, the ancestor of the Young Conservatives. Whadda ya'll think?

We Are All Pharma-Bro Suckers

"Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli became one of the most notorious people in America for hiking the price of a rarely used life-saving drug by 4,000 percent in September of 2015.

And nearly a year later, dozens of reports are now coming out about how Mylan Pharmaceuticals hiked the price of the very common life-saving EpiPen by over 450% since Mylan bought EpiPen in 2007.
