Although her family supported her, gave her a roof to sleep under and enough food for the infant, Khadija buckled under the psychological pressure of financial dependency. (Source: UNFPA News)

Long-necked dinosaurs rotated their forefeet to the side
(University of Bonn) Long-necked dinosaurs (sauropods) could orient their forefeet both forward and sideways. The orientation of their feet depended on the speed and centre of mass of the animals. An international team of researchers investigated numerous dinosaur footprints in Morocco at the foot of the Atlas Mountains using state-of-the-art methods. By comparing them with other sauropods tracks, the scientists determined how the long-necked animals moved forward. The results have been published in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.

We intervened to improve living conditions and access to basic services for the most vulnerable surviving in the forest and urban camps.

We present genomic data from seven 15,000-year-old modern humans, attributed to the Iberomaurusian culture, from Morocco. We find a genetic affinity with early Holocene Near Easterners, best represented by Levantine Natufians, suggesting a pre-agricultural connection between Africa and the Near East. We do not find evidence for gene flow from Paleolithic Europeans to Late Pleistocene North Africans. The Taforalt individuals derive one-third of their ancestry from sub-Saharan Africans, best approximated by a mixture of genetic components preserved in present-day West and East Africans. Thus, we provide direct evidence for g...
