Stone Age Chinese People First Tamed Cattle Over 10,000 Years Ago

Stone Age Chinese People First Tamed Cattle Over 10,000 Years Ago | Global politics | Scoop.it
A new study provides the first multi-disciplinary evidence that humans in what is now China first domesticated cattle around 8,000 BC.

 

Until now, scientists believed that humans started domesticating cattle around 10,000 years ago in the Near East, which gave rise to humpless cattle, while 2,000 years later humans began managing humped cattle in Southern Asia.

 

However, scientists from China and Europe reveal evidence for management of cattle in north-eastern China around 10,000 years ago. This indicates that Neolithic humans may have started domesticating cows in more regions around the world than was previously believed.

 

A lower jaw of an ancient cattle specimen was discovered during an excavation in north-east China, and was carbon dated to be 10,660 years old.

 

The jaw displayed a unique pattern of wear on the molars, which is best explained to be the results of long-term human management of the animal.

 

Ancient DNA from the jaw revealed that the animal did not belong to the same cattle lineages that were domesticated in the Near East and South Asia.

 

The combination of the age of the jaw, the unique wear and genetic signature suggests that this find represents the earliest evidence for cattle management in north-east China; a time and place not previously considered as potential domestication centre for cattle.

Fort Russ: "We are losing"--Maidan die-hard toys with the idea of military dictatorship | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Loads of rubbish. Thinking like that Ukrainians will be wiped out from the history books. They'd rather focus on rebuilding their country and establishing a federation which would recognize the other ethno-linguistic populations. As long as they persist in imposing a Ukrainizing dictatorship, all they'll get is more defeat, because the rest will fight for their homes and culture, and won't tolerate a Galician invasion.

Fort Russ: Ukraine's Strategic Food Reserve...Runs Out Of Food

Fort Russ: Ukraine's Strategic Food Reserve...Runs Out Of Food | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

There indeed were earlier reports that the strategic reserve was being "unsealed" to support military operations on the Donbass.  The army has to eat, after all, and maintaining several tens of thousands of soldiers for nearly a year is likely to make a dent. The second factor was the junta's desperate need to earn hard currency to somehow plug up the many budget holes opened up by its adoption of "European Choice" neoliberal economic policies. Therefore anything that could be sold, was sold, including Mariupol's huge grain reserves.
