This Is The Most Convincing Evidence We’ve Seen That The Moon Landings Were Faked

Unless you’ve been hiding in Area 51 for the past several months waiting for rescue from Naruto runners, you are probably very aware that it’s coming up to the 50th anniversary of the first time humans walked on the Moon. Not everyone is convinced, however, that we really did go to the Moon. Conspiracy theorists are adamant that it’s all in fact a government conspiracy, and that all the footage was actually shot on Earth and then slowed down (even though it’s unlikely the film technology was available at the time). Some have even claimed to see a stage-hand in shot, even though there clearly isn’t. So, in honor of the Moon landings, which may or may not have happened (please hold your …

Arianna Huffington departs Uber’s board

New York (CNN Business)Arianna Huffington is leaving the board of Uber after three years. Huffington also adamantly stood behind Kalanick, insisting that he “absolutely not” leave his role as CEO. Kalanick was ousted from the company in June 2017. In the regulatory filing announcing her departure, Huffington cites the growth of her media company, Thrive Global, as reason for her departure. “Given Thrive’s growth, it has become clear to me that I will no longer be able to give my Uber board duties the attention they deserve, so I will be stepping down,” said Huffington. “It has been an unforgettable three-year ride, and I’m grateful to have been able to work alongside my fellow board members and witness the incredible …

Why The Celebrity Finsta Is The Best New Instagram Trend Betches

Since Instagram first became popular several years ago, regular people and celebrities alike have put an insane amount of effort into keeping up their perfect grid.

Remembering Walter Cronkite’s words on the day of the Apollo 11 moon landing

(CNN)Think back, if you remember the day July 20, 1969. Or imagine, if you weren’t born yet. It is a Sunday evening in the middle of a sultry summer. Television screens are aglow with live coverage of the Apollo 11 mission. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin are about to step onto an alien surface, never quite sure if they’ll make it home. An untold number of engineers and technicians are working behind the scenes to beam their live pictures from the moon back to Earth. Anchors like Walter Cronkite are narrating every step. And the family members of the astronauts are watching Cronkite to see what’s about to happen. Salant’s reflections were published in a book that CBS released in …

125,000-Year-Old Bone Engravings May Be Oldest Ever Example Of Denisovan Art

Two animal bone fragments decorated with abstract engravings and dating to 105,000-125,000 years ago have been unearthed in China. The etchings on one of these bones are filled with ochre, providing the first-ever evidence that ochred engravings were produced for symbolic purposes by Late Pleistocene hominins in East Asia.   While we currently don’t know for sure, the researchers believe the archaic hominins behind the artwork were Denisovan. The bones were found in Lingjing in northern China’s Henan Province in the same rock layer that two ancient hominin skull fragments were previously found. It’s still not known which archaic human species these bones belong to, but many argue they are Denisovan. “A growing body of genetic evidence indicates that Denisovans, and …
