Raising A Girl During #MeToo – Erin Matson


Awesome post from one of my favorite writers – Erin Matson.

Erin Matson

The #MeToo reckoning has only started to reveal the routine and gratuitous presence of sexual harassment, abuse, and assault in the lives of women and girls. It’s going to be a long, slow burn of new stories coming to the surface, some of them shocking and others as duh-tastic as possible (you mean that pompous guy who was known for treating his employees like shit and the “pro-life” congressman who obsessed about controlling women’s bodies all day long on the House floor were treating their women employees like their own personal sexual property? NO WAY!). There will be more backlash, and considering who is president of the United States, it is going to be terrible.

I’ll be honest, I find this a particularly challenging moment to parent a girl who is getting ready to go to kindergarten…

Early humans migrated out of Africa much earlier than we thought —  Lily Kuo / Quartz


 

Modern humans dispersed across Asia during the late Pleistocene era.

The opening paragraphs from this piece by Lily Kuo for Quartz :

 

The traditional human origin story maintains that modern humans, or homo sapiens, evolved in Africa and then migrated in a single wave to the Asian continent about 60,000 years ago. It’s better known as the “Out of Africa” model. Today, researchers are revising that narrative.

According to a study published this week in Science, new discoveries over the last decade have shown that modern humans likely originated from several migrations out of Africa that began as early as 120,000 years ago. Researchers have found fossils in southern and central China dating between 70,000 and 120,000 years ago.

 

The abstracts of the original study by Christopher J. Bae, Katerina Douka and Michael D. Petraglia are below.

There might be a fast radio burst every second / Alison Klesman / Astronomy.com


Parkes
The Parkes radio telescope “heard” the first fast radio burst in 2001. Could bursts actually be going off every second? CSIRO

Alison Klesman writes on Astronomy.com about the fascinating possibility that there are fast radio bursts (FRBs) filling the sky every second that could give us clues to nature of our universe in its youth or its Epoch of Reionization phase.

Prior to reionization, there were few if any light sources in the universe. When stars started to form, their light ionized the neutral hydrogen spread throughout the cosmos, turning it transparent. NASA/WMAP Science Team
