5,700-year-old woman named ‘Lola’ has entire life revealed in her ‘chewing gum’

Thousands of years ago, a young Neolithic woman in what is now Denmark chewed on a piece of birch pitch. DNA analysis of this prehistoric “chewing gum” has now revealed, in remarkable detail, what she looked like.

The team nicknamed the young Neolithic woman “Lola” after Lolland, the island in Denmark on which the 5,700-year-old chewing gum was discovered. The Stone Age archaeological site, Syltholm, on the island of Lolland, pristinely preserved the gum in mud for the thousands of years after Lola discarded it.

It was so well-preserved that a group of scientists at the University of Copenhagen were able to extract a complete ancient human genome — all of the young girl’s genetic material — from it. They were also able to extract DNA from ancient pathogens and oral microbes that she carried in her mouth.

This is the first time that an entire human genome was extracted from something other than human bones, according to a statement from the University of Copenhagen. The team’s analysis revealed that the chewer of the prehistoric gum was female, and likely had dark skin, dark hair and blue eyes. They found that Lola’s genes matched more closely to hunter-gatherers from the European mainland than those who lived in central Scandinavia at the time.

The ancient chewing gum also held traces of plant and animal DNA, such as DNA from hazelnuts and duck, which might have been part of Lola’s diet, according to the statement. Finally, scientists found genes associated with “lactase non-persistence,” meaning Lola likely didn’t digest dairy very well.

Other previous archeological finds from the site had suggested “that the people who occupied the site were heavily exploiting wild resources well into the Neolithic, which is the period when farming and domesticated animals were first introduced into southern Scandinavia,” lead author Theis Jensen, a postdoctoral fellow from the Globe Institute at the University of Copenhagen, said in the statement.

Finally, the researchers found DNA from oral microbes in the chewing gum, including DNA that could belong to the Epstein-Barr virus, which causes mononucleosis, otherwise known as “mono” or the “kissing disease.”

The birch pitch is a blackish-brown substance that’s created by heating up birch bark. This substance has been used since the Paleolithic era as glue for hafting stone tools, according to the statement.

But previously, pieces of birch pitch have been found with tooth marks, so archeologists think that as the pitch cools and solidified, it was chewed to make it moldable again before using it to glue.

Other theories suggest that people chewed the slightly antiseptic birch pitch to relieve toothaches or other illnesses. Birch pitch might also have been used for toothbrushing, to suppress hunger or even just for fun as chewing gum, according to the statement.

Ancient “chewing gums” are a relatively new source of DNA to analyze, and can help reveal the microbiome of our ancestors. It may also help explain how bacteria and viruses have changed over time.

“It can help us understand how pathogens have evolved and spread over time, and what makes them particularly virulent in a given environment,” senior author Hannes Schroeder, an associate professor from the Globe Institute at the University of Copenhagen, said in a statement. “At the same time, it may help predict how a pathogen will behave in the future, and how it might be contained or eradicated.”

The findings were published on Dec. 17 in the journal Nature Communications.

Whooping cough outbreak closes Texas school despite 100-percent vaccination rate: officials

An outbreak of the highly contagious whooping cough has forced one school in Houston, Tex., to close its doors early for the holiday break.

St. Theresa Catholic School in Memorial Park will be closed until Jan. 6 due to the outbreak, which has affected students and staff alike. Some children have been hospitalized as a result, the Houston Chronicle reports.

The first case was confirmed on Dec. 4. The community and the Texas Department of State Health Services were subsequently notified. It’s not clear how many people are affected.

Whooping cough, or pertussis, is a very contagious disease that spreads through coughing or sneezing. It can take up to three weeks for symptoms to appear. Late-stage symptoms may include rapid coughing followed by a high-pitched “whoop” sound, vomiting and exhaustion.

Officials with the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston said that 100 percent of students who attend St. Theresa Catholic School are vaccinated against the illness. That said, those who have received the whooping cough vaccine can sometimes still contract the disease if they are exposed. If this occurs, the symptoms are typically milder, however.

“It is my prayer that we have no more children hospitalized due to the spread of this disease,” Rev. Phil Lloyd, pastor at St. Theresa Catholic School, said in a letter sent to parents, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Ancient Egyptian woman believed to be world’s first female doctor did not exist, study says

Long thought to be the world’s first female doctor, Merit Ptah was believed to have lived in ancient Egypt nearly 5,000 years ago. A new study, however, suggests she never actually existed.

“Merit Ptah was everywhere. In online posts about women in STEM, in computer games, in popular history books, there’s even a crater on Venus named after her,” Jakub Kwiecinski, a medical historian and the study’s sole author, said in a statement. “And yet, with all these mentions, there was no proof that she really existed. It soon became clear that there had been no ancient Egyptian woman physician called Merit Ptah.”

Kwiecinski, who said he acted “almost like a detective,” went through various pieces of literature searching for proof that Ptah existed and found the first mention was in a book from 1938 published by Kate Campbell Hurd-Mead, a medical historian, doctor and activist.

Westlake Legal Group MERIT-PTAH-PHOTO Ancient Egyptian woman believed to be world's first female doctor did not exist, study says fox-news/science/archaeology/ancient-egypt fox news fnc/science fnc d46e0cc1-76da-5c72-96e6-dfec7e555a10 Chris Ciaccia article

(Credit: University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus)

MYSTERY OF TUTANKHAMUN’S DEATH ‘SOLVED’

Hurd-Mead said the first female doctor was Ptah, giving detail how she lived in the book during the time of the “Old Kingdom,” which lasted from 2575 to 2150 B.C.

The book also discussed the excavation of a tomb in the Valley of Kings that specifically shows a “picture of a woman doctor named Merit Ptah, the mother of a high priest, who is calling her `the Chief Physician.’”

Except that Ptah was never listed as a healer, Kwiecinski stated.

“Merit Ptah as a name existed in the Old Kingdom, but does not appear in any of the collated lists of ancient Egyptian healers – not even as one of the `legendary’; or `controversial cases,” he added. “She is also absent from the list of Old Kingdom women administrators. No Old Kingdom tombs are present in the Valley of the Kings, where the story places Merit Ptah’s son, and only a handful of such tombs exist in the larger area, the Theban Necropolis.”

It may be that Hurd-Mead confused Ptah with another ancient Egyptian female, Peseshet, to whom she bore a resemblance. Between 1929 and 1930, a tomb of Akhethetep was discovered with a trap door depicting Peseshet, who was presumed to be the tomb owner’s mother, as the “overseer of healer women,” which may have led to the confusion.

“Unfortunately, Hurd-Mead in her own book accidentally mixed up the name of the ancient healer, as well as the date when she lived, and the location of the tomb,” Kwiecinski continued. “And so, from a misunderstood case of an authentic Egyptian woman healer, Peseshet, a seemingly earlier Merit Ptah, `the first woman physician’ was born.”

MYSTERIOUS ANCIENT EGYPTIAN ‘HEAD CONES’ DISCOVERED

Kwiecinski said it demonstrates that incorrect historical accounts can be passed down easily, in this case, through “through amateur historian circles,” similar to how fake news stories are spread today.

“Finally, it was associated with an extremely emotional, partisan – but also deeply personal – issue of equal rights,” Kwiecinski said. “Altogether this created a perfect storm that propelled the story of Merit Ptah into being told over and over again.”

Despite the fact Ptah was likely not the world’s first female doctor, she is “a very real symbol of the 20th century feministic struggle to write women back into the history books, and to open medicine and STEM to women,” Kwiecinski added.

The research has been published in the Journal of the History of Medicine and Allied Sciences.

A yacht belonging to Marc Anthony caught on fire and capsized in Miami, according to reports.

Jennifer Lopez‘s ex-husband allegedly was the owner of the 120-foot Andiamo yacht that went up in flames Wednesday night just before 9 p.m., Fox 7 reported.

The vessel was docked in the Island Gardens Marina of Watson Island in Miami, Fla. as it became engulfed in flames before 9 p.m.

The Miami news outlet said 45 firefighters responded to the scene to put out the smoke and fire.

Video footage shared by a Fox 7 reporter on scene showed multiple hoses battling the boat’s flames as half of it was already capsized underwater.

Miami Fire Rescue Captain Ignatius Carroll described the scene as “very active” once responders arrived on scene.

“Because of the amount of fire on that ship, we had [to] take more of a defensive attack, so we have our fire boats with Miami-Dade County as well,” the captain told the local outlet.

The devastation appeared to result in a “total loss” for Anthony’s yacht, according to the report. No other boats in the marina were affected by the blaze.

Details of what could have possibly caused the fire have yet to be released. The outlet confirmed no one was aboard the yacht at the time of the incident.

Impeachment

In 1974, the televised Watergate hearings that eventually led to President Richard Nixon’s resignation before he could be formally impeached were riveting must-see-TV.

But fast forward 45 years and the historic impeachment Wednesday of President Donald Trump by the House of Representatives played for many with all the drama a late-night re-run.

“This stuff is just bologna to me, right along party lines,” Bill Underwood, a 72-year-old financial planner from California, said of the partisan vote playing on a nearby TV while sipping on a Maker’s Mark and 7Up at Las Vegas’ South Point Hotel and Casino. “It’s an exercise in futility.”

Underwood’s impeachment hearing sentiments — a mix of bureaucracy fatigue and resigned ennui — had echoes around the country.

Those who did tune into some or all of the eight hours of pre-vote debate did so sporadically and episodically. Instead of big gatherings in front of television screens, citizens on both sides of the political divide either watched live-streams on their smartphones or checked text updates from friends. 

Westlake Legal Group  Impeachment

There certainly were voices extolling the solemnity of the occasion given that Trump is only the third commander-in-chief to be impeached, after Andrew Johnson in 1868 and Bill Clinton in 1998.

“I hope everyone watched this and understands it’s the constitution at stake,” said Teresa Klein of Corpus Christi, Texas. “Whether people are upset or happy it’s the process.”

But Klein didn’t watch, blaming work for not being able to follow along with the live stream of the House debate and vote and relied instead on friends for updates.

In San Francisco, a small crowd had gathered at Manny’s, a cafe and community meeting space that had the proceedings playing two large televisions. The cafe opened its doors at 6 a.m. local time, but it took awhile for a group to assemble. Manuel Maciel, 40, was visiting on a business trip but sought out the eatery to be with like-minded souls.

Westlake Legal Group  Impeachment

“It’s a sad day, this isn’t something to celebrate,” said Maciel, a Marine veteran whose son is currently in the Army serving in Afghanistan. Maciel said he was disheartened by Trump’s actions. “I have friends all over the world. America has always been someplace that people look to as a beacon of freedom and liberty. But no more. Now we’re allying ourselves with dictators. It makes me embarrassed.”

Partisanship was on display in the House, where the votes to impeach Trump for both abuse of power and obstruction fell along party lines. And it was present in scenes across America, often in the same location.

Some snapshots from around the USA:

Atlanta

Johnathan Atkins smiled and chuckled as he held his phone up to take a photo of the TV screen at a bar in the Atlanta Airport Atrium. The House had just voted and 30-year-old Atkins said he was happy to watch the historic moment unfold. 

“I’m happy because it made a statement about our government,” said Atkins, who works for a property management software company in the Atlanta area. “It definitely sends a message that people can only put up with so much. Everybody has their breaking point.”

Atkins, who is African-American, a voting bloc that Trump has had difficulty winning over in large numbers, was among the dozen or so patrons sitting around the bar at the Atlanta Chophouse and Brewery as the impeachment debate played out, muted, on TV.

Westlake Legal Group  Impeachment

Of the patrons that came and went over the hours, only about five were spotted watching the impeachment. Other patrons had their eyes glued to their phones or chatted with each other as Christmas music blared from speakers.

Carl Buckholt, a Dallas-based engineer for an eyewear company, periodically glanced at the television as he sipped a glass of red wine. Buckholt, who had been in Atlanta on business, called Trump “the worst president we’ve ever had.”

“I think the House has shown clear evidence of his need for impeachment,” said Buckholt, 52. “That’s just one small facet of his entire presidency. He’s had lots of improper use of his power throughout his entire term.”

Points of view:Trump impeachment: Democrats’ needless ‘national nightmare’

And another::Trump impeachment is a monumental victory against blatant corruption and for democracy

Buckholt, a lifelong Democrat, said while he doesn’t expect Trump will be removed from office, the impeachment shows “you should not allow that type of activity.”

Raymond Coffman, of Smyrna, Georgia, said before the vote that the impeachment only demonstrates the divisiveness of Democrats and Republicans. Coffman, a Republican and local church pastor, said Trump “says stupid things and he offends people” but he is pleased with the nation’s economy.

The Democrats, he said, are “too extreme” for wanting to impeach Trump. “At the end of the day, I don’t think he’s going to leave office,” said Coffman, who plans to vote for Trump in 2020.

Westerville, Ohio

Two months ago, the Democratic political world orbited around Westerville. The former Republican stronghold, which Hillary Clinton carried in 2016, is considered such a microcosm of the Midwestern suburban vote Democrats need to win to succeed in 2020 that the party held its presidential primary debate at Otterbein University here in October.

But despite that backdrop, the House impeachment vote did not cause much of a stir beyond some disgruntled feelings. In fact, Ohio State’s upcoming playoff game was of greater interest to some inside Jimmy V’s Grill & Pub, where televisions over the bar were tuned to the 2014 Orange Bowl — an unwelcome reminder for Buckeye fans of the team’s recent history with Clemson — than floor speeches in the House.

“We never beat Clemson,” said Mark Zickefoose between sips of a Coors Light.

Nearby, Scott Heller said he couldn’t escape impeachment coverage throughout the day. Every radio station carried it, and his dinner at Jimmy V’s was a break from proceedings he called “a joke.”

Westlake Legal Group  Impeachment

Suzette Heller, a Trump supporter, felt similar. “I just want to get to the bottom line,” she said.

“That just makes me want to vote for him more,” said Mark Reed, an aviation maintenance technology instructor, as the vote tallies rolled.

But for most of the restaurant’s customers, their evenings were planned around anything but impeachment.

Tricia Roederer was celebrating the conclusion of her first semester of law school at Ohio State University by having drinks with her friend Margaret Schocken. She said she was too consumed with finals to pay close attention to impeachment.

“It’s kind of exhausting to keep up with from an emotional standpoint,” she said.

Washington, D.C.

In the lobby of the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., guests flowed in and out as the House voted. Many dined, others shared drinks and some headed toward the elevators to their rooms after coming in from a cold capital city night.

Tourists occasionally popped into the hotel to take group photos and selfies in front of the large Christmas tree that sits in the center of the lobby.

Televisions at the restaurant bar showed both sports and the House proceedings. One was tuned to FOX News, the other CNN. Some people at the bar watched closely as other diners made their way to a cheese and meat buffet.

Westlake Legal Group  Impeachment

“I thought there was going to be an impeachment party,” said Victoria Camp, a retired school teacher who lives in the area.

Camp came to the hotel lobby after spending the day on Capitol Hill but was surprised to find not many interested in the vote. While in the lobby, she met others who disapproved of some Democrats’ handling of the impeachment proceedings.

But as the votes started to roll in just after 8 p.m. local time, more people crowded near the bar to witness the moment.

Brent Wilsey, an investment advisor from San Diego, was watching the debate only on and off during the day but came to the lobby for the final vote. He said he’d hoped more Democrats would have changed their minds.

“It’s the kind of thing where you know what’s going to happen, but you still want to watch,” he said.

Tallahassee, Florida

In a bar less than a block from the Florida State Capitol, none of the two dozen or so patrons watched TVs that showed members of Congress voting to impeach Trump.

Instead, they talked about work and other things over beer and cocktails, ate roasted broccoli and quesadillas and occasionally glanced up at the basketball games being broadcast on wide screens that hung from the walls.

“I care about the impeachment, but it’s dragged on for too long,” said Gregory Schultz, who sat down with three friends at Andrew’s Downtown just as the floor vote on the first article of impeachment got under way.

Schultz and his friends came to watch the Miami Heat play the Philadelphia 76ers, which was being broadcast on two TVs behind the bar. But every now and then he glanced at the one TV on the far wall of the dining area just to see what was going on.

Westlake Legal Group  Impeachment

“It’s definitely happening,” he nodded, certain that the House would vote in favor of impeachment. Trump had just tweeted out to his supporters to pray for him, saying he’d done no wrong, but Schultz believed otherwise.

“He’s desperate,” Schultz said.

Sitting next to him, Sarah Gonzalez added, “They did it this time because his presidency is over. I don’t think he has another term.”

Their friend Peyton “Jake” Thompson begged to differ. “The Democrats are reaching,” he said. 

He’s not a big politics guy, and doesn’t agree with everything Trump has said or done, but he was elected by the people and everyone should wait for the next election, he said. “If it’s not meant to be, he’ll get beat,” Thompson said.

Several other patrons at the bar said that the proceedings themselves, which Democrats have argued are an exercise in protecting the Constitution as laid out by the Founding Fathers, simply illustrate why the general public has contempt for Congress.

The impeachment hearings, they said, were an open display of tribalism that lacked civility and dignity, and offered an outcome many could predict.

Thompson agreed. “It’s a foregone conclusion,” he said. “Politics causes all the problems.”

Tekashi 6ix9ine victim speaks out after sentencing: ‘I did not want him to be able to come home for Christmas’

Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine was sentenced to two years in prison for racketeering on Wednesday and now, one of his victims is speaking out.

Speaking to TMZ, Skyy Daniels, who was held up at gunpoint by 6ix9ine’s Nine Trey Blood gang members, spoke about the rapper’s sentencing and said she is happy the rapper won’t be home for the holidays.

“The best thing about the two-year sentence [is] I did not want him to be able to come home for Christmas to his family,” Daniels said. “You know where I was last year for Christmas with my family? I was in the hospital.”

Holding back tears, Daniels became emotional as she continued to reflect on her traumatic incident with the rainbow-haired rapper.

“I was away from my children, I was away from my grandchildren [and] I was away from my parents. I was in hiding in a hospital, suffering from a mental breakdown,” she lamented. “He did not deserve to be home with his family. Justice was served because he was not able to be home with his family for the holidays, just like I was not able to home with my family for the holidays.

Per the victim impact statement obtained by TMZ, Daniels was held up at gunpoint by 6ix9ine’s gang affiliates in a case of mistaken identity in 2018. The members of the Nine Trey Gangster Bloods believed Daniels and her assistant were associates of Rap-A-Lot Records — though they were not.

“My nightmares come from Tekashi. My situation that I’m in, it all stems from that day on April the 3rd, leaving 50 Cent’s studio in Manhattan, Times Square in broad daylight. Having guns put to my abdomen and my head — you know, I can still hear it, I can still feel it,” she said.

“I still need counseling, I haven’t been able to afford it. I’ve suffered financially, mentally, emotionally [and] spiritually. He deserves to pay all of [his victims]. He deserves to have to start over his life, just like we have been forced to.”

Although 6ix9ine was not directly involved in the assault, the victim impact statement states that the rapper recorded the entire ordeal on his phone.

Daniels also reflected on 6ix9ine’s offer to reimburse one of his victim’s medical bills following a shooting, stating, “He should pay her medical bills and yes, he owes me everything because he took everything away from me.”

Surveillance footage of Jeffrey Epstein’s first apparent suicide attempt in July — which happened when he was sharing a cell with a former police officer facing charges for quadruple homicide — is either missing or doesn’t exist, according to officials.

Epstein, 66, died by hanging in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan on Aug. 10, but apparently tried to kill himself weeks earlier, on July 23.

At the time, he shared a cell with Nick Tartaglione, who said in September he was paired with Epstein because he wasn’t a threat to him. Days after the attempted suicide, Epstein’s lawyer requested to preserve the security footage from him and Tartaglione’s time together. But during a court hearing on Wednesday, prosecutors said the footage disappeared, according to attorney Bruce Barket.

“I don’t know the details of how it was lost or destroyed, or why it wasn’t retained when it should have been,” Barket told the New York Post. “We want to be sure that all the evidence is preserved to show that Nick behaved appropriately and even admirably that evening.”

Barket added they “asked for all the video and photographic evidence to be preserved, specifically this surveillance video. Now it’s gone.”

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Swergold told U.S. District Judge Kenneth Karas during the hearing that it’s prosecutors’ understanding “that the video no longer exists,” according to The Journal News. “It was not preserved.”

After Epstein’s apparent suicide attempt, he was placed on suicide watch, and Tartaglione was transferred out of the disgraced financier’s cell in the facility’s Special Housing Unit, a heavily secured part of the MCC that separates high-profile inmates from the general population.

Epstein reportedly alleged Tartaglione “roughed him up” while they were cellmates, but Barket has adamantly denied such accusations, calling it “a complete fabrication.” Barket even said Tartaglione and Epstein “became friends” during their time at MCC together.

Epstein’s suicide is now the subject of a criminal probe. Two jail guards assigned to watch him the day he died have pleaded not guilty to criminal charges. However, authorities claim they failed to check in on the disgraced politically connected financier in the eight hours before he allegedly killed himself.
