Science Bulletins: Early Human Walked Upright
Since a few 6-million-year-old bones of the species Orrorin tugenesis were discovered in Kenya in 2000, scientists have not been certain that Orrorin could walk upright. A new analysis of the thighbone by biological anthropologists at The George Washington University and Stony Brook University asserts that it was indeed bipedal, and walked with a slow gait not unlike 4-million-year-old "Lucy," the species Australopithecus afarensis. The common ancestor of chimpanzees and humans was thought to l

Antony Currie talks to "Dark Pools" author Scott Patterson about the rise of HFT systems that appear to be stealing a march on regular investors and whether regulators can keep up with Wall Street's tech revolution.
Lyudmila Burlaka, who was born in 1935 in Kherson and lived there during the war years, describes how, together with other Jews, she was taken to be shot, how her mother pushed her out of a group of Kherson Jews doomed to death into a crowd of local spectators. She recounts how she was wounded by machine-gun fire but saved by local residents. For more information: http://www1.yadvashem.org/untoldstories/database/murderSite.asp?site_id=214
Dora Kardovskaya, who was born in 1920 in Kherson and was an inmate of Auschwitz during the war years, testifies about the three places where Jews from Kherson and war prisoners were executed and buried in mass graves in Kherson and surrounding areas. Kardovskaya continues and tells how she and two other women found a mass grave of Kherson Jews, how the monument there fell into disrepair, and how she arranged for the repairing of the monument.

SI 502 - To appreciate the opportunities and make wise choices about the use of technology, information professionals need to understand the architectures of modern information systems. In alternative system architectures, storage, communication, and processing substitute for and complement each other in different ways. This course introduces students, at several different levels of abstraction, to sets of functional components and alternative ways of combining those components to form systems.
