To Russia, with love
Hi! My name’s Nathan and I spent 28 days driving a 15-year old Nissan Micra from London to Ulan-Ude in eastern Russia with my friend Richard this summer as part of The Mongol Rally. The first thing people ask us (after they’ve said we’re bonkers) is why on earth we decided to do this. Richard has wanted to compete in the Mongol rally since around 2005, and being a caring friend I managed to convince my manager to let me have the time off in order to escort him one-third of the way across the globe.   As a condition of entry, each team must raise a minimum of £1,000 for charity – £500 of which ha...

Dogs May Have Come From Central Asia
Dogs haven’t always been man’s best friend, and the question of when they were first domesticated is surprisingly complex. A new study sheds some light on the issue, with an international team of scientists pointing to Central Asia as the the best candidate for the origin of today’s pups. The study, published Tuesday in the journal PNAS, is the most expansive one to date, using three types of DNA gathered from 161 breeds of 4,500 dogs, along with 549 “village dogs”—street and feral dogs that make up an estimated 75% of the world’s total dog population—from 38 countries.
