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?

Trump Discredits The Election Process

President Obama is absolutely disgusted with Donald Trump's talk about a rigged election.

He made that very clear this week during a press conference at the White House - in which he called Trump's conspiracy theories about voter fraud "unprecedented".
