This Dinosaur Had a ‘Bandit Mask’ Like a Raccoon
Scientists said this week that a “diminutive” dinosaur from China is the first to sport a so-called “bandit mask” pattern around its eyes, an evolutionary feature common in modern-day mammals and birds, including raccoons. The revelation came in a study released Thursday by researchers in England. “This is the first time it’s been seen in a dinosaur and, to my knowledge, any extinct animal that shows color bands,” a co-author of the study, Fiann Smithwick, told the BBC. The roughly turkey-sized dinosaur, called Sinosauropteryx, was incidentally one of the first fossils to show evid...

Stop Your Body Attacking Itself
Modern medicine has no cure for autoimmune diseases — and, sadly, most doctors don’t understand them. I’m talking about disorders like rheumatoid arthritis, type 1 diabetes, lupus, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis (MS) and more. In all, there are about 80 autoimmune diseases affecting organs throughout the body. They occur when your own immune system becomes overactive and attacks your body instead of diseases and foreign invaders. The standard mainstream treatment for most autoimmune disorders relies on Big Pharma drugs that cover up symptoms or suppress your immun...

President Trump Is Planning to Slash the Number of Refugees Allowed Into the U.S.
(WASHINGTON) — The Trump administration will allow no more than 45,000 refugees into the United States next year, officials said Tuesday, in what would be the lowest admissions level in more than a decade. President Donald Trump is expected to announce the cap on refugee admissions following a lengthy debate within his administration about whether to go higher or lower. The figure represents the maximum number of refugees the U.S. would be willing to accept. The actual number of refugees who move to the United States could actually be much lower. The administration had been considering a ceiling somewhere between 40...

North Korea Let’s begin with something the UN can do very little to resolve: the North Korea standoff. There are three reasons for that.

Conclusion This study shows that all physical activity, in any form, is good for us. This includes both recreational and non-recreational activities. Don't be misled by some of the media: non-recreational activities like housework are not "better" than recreational activities like playing sports or going to the gym. The fact that reduced risk was seen with non-recreational activity across all countries, but only seen with recreational activity in high-income countries was probably just because fewer people in lower-income countries play sports or go to the gym. The researchers estimate that 8% of all deaths and...
