The footprints of five ancestors of humans who walked the Earth more than 3.6m years ago have been found preserved in volcanic ash
Africa


Researchers unearthed the tracks by accident when they began to
excavate test pits that had been called for as part of an assessment
of the impact of building a proposed museum on the site in Tanzania.

The markings reveal that the ancient human relatives walked side by
side for at least 30 metres. The footprints were laid down in a layer
of ash that was subsequently buried, but which when moistened retained
the tracks like clay.

A first analysis of the footprints suggests that they were made when a
male, three females and a child passed through what is now Laetoli in
the African country. The individuals almost certainly belong to a
species of hairy bipedal ape called Australopithecus afarensis which
is known to have lived in the region.

The layer of ash that preserved the tracks has been dated to 3.66m
years old, the same age as a similar sequence of hominin, or human
ancestor, footprints found nearby by famed palaeontologist Mary Leakey
in the 1970s.

“These footprints enrich our knowledge about the most ancient hominin
footprints in the world,” Cherin told the Guardian. “But they tell us
something about the makers too, in this case that we think there were
significant differences between the males and females. This is the
most striking thing.”

“A tentative conclusion is that the group consisted of one male, two
or three females, and one or two juveniles, which leads us to believe
that the male – and therefore other males in the species – had more
than one female mate,” Cherin added. Details of the tracks are
published in the journal, eLife.

Mirrors on the ceiling,
The pink champagne on ice
And she said “We are all just prisoners here, of our own device” Last
thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
“Relax,” said the night man,
“We are programmed to receive.
You can check-out any time you like,
But you can never leave! “

What is clear is that we are at the fag-end of this party.

cocoa each season. The output gains mean the market is shifting from a
production deficit to the biggest surplus in six years, according to
Citigroup Inc.

After the Arab Spring, this is the Black Spring? via @TheStarKenya
Africa


The big picture point is in fact a demographic one. Many commentators
define the African population surge as a ‘’dividend’’ but what is
clear is that if it is allowed a Free and Fair vote its going be a
Terminator for a whole number of regimes. The demographic bulge is now
arriving at voting age. This is that moment, its importance cannot be
gainsaid.

These regimes are now facing an existentialist crisis.

We need to ask ourselves; how many people can an incumbent Regime
shoot stone cold dead – 100, 1,000, 10,000? This is another point:
there is a threshold beyond which the incumbent can’t go. Where that
threshold lies will be discovered in the throes of the event.

So now when you look around, you should consider that the
Biker-President sitting in the Presidential Palace in Kinshasa is
hanging on by his finger-tips. The Ethiopian Government needs to
re-invent itself as a National movement/Party and do it now. Geriatric
Government from Harare to Equatorial Guinea might not move aside
easily but make no mistake its in the departure lounge and the open
question is will it leave first class, coach or be placed in shackles
and placed at the back of the plane like our People are when they are
sent back from Europe because they have entered illegally.

Tanzanian market,” says Ahmed Salim, an analyst at Teneo Intelligence.
Relations between business and the government are already strained.
