The three points elevated Spurs to fourth place, nine points behind Barclays Premier League leaders Leicester City.They owe their good run to a sequence of just two defeats in 17 games; only Leicester have suffered fewer losses (just one, against Arsenal).Away from home, Tottenham are unbeaten since the opening day of the season, but they lost their last home game, against Newcastle, and will be determined to keep the pressure on the leaders, with two away games to follow this, at Watford and Everton.Norwich got a much-needed boost last weekend with a memorable 2-1 win at Manchester United, where the Canaries became the first newly promoted side to win at Old Trafford since Bolton in October 2001.It was only Norwich’s second win away this season and fourth of the season, and it allowed the Canaries to move out of the relegation zone.Tottenham have not lost a Boxing Day game since 2003, at Portsmouth.

Out-of-Africa Theory Becomes More Convoluted

first_imgThe old simple story that early modern humans migrated out of Africa 40,000 years ago and took over Europe from brutish Neanderthals just got more complicated.  A new theory mentioned in National Geographic News now proposes that they took a side trip to India first, 70,000 years ago.  After knocking off Heidelberg Man there, they moved west 30,000 years later and took over Europe.  This is the new story line proposed by Michael Petraglia and Hannah James of Cambridge.  Petraglia said, “I realized that, my god, modern humans might have wiped out Homo heidelbergensis in India.  Modern humans may have been responsible for wiping out all sorts of ancestors around the world.”We’ll award that line Stupid Evolution Quote of the Week.  To interpret stories like this, you have to understand that it is all just a game.  The object is to get mentioned in National Geographic, preferably on the cover, by saying something just controversial enough to draw attention to oneself without ever throwing the whole enterprise of evolutionary paleoanthropology into doubt.(Visited 14 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
