The fossil of an early snake-like animal -- called Lethiscus stocki -- has kept its evolutionary secrets for the last 340-million years. Now, an international team of researchers has revealed new insights into the ancient Scottish fossil that dramatically challenge our understanding of the early evolution of tetrapods, or four-limbed animals with backbones.

Previously unknown Anglesey landscape possibly includes cairn cemetery in what experts described as ‘really exciting stuff’

Archaeologists have uncovered a prehistoric ritual landscape that possibly includes a cairn cemetery around a 5,000-year-old burial mound aligned with the summer solstice sun on Anglesey.

Though far less famous than Stonehenge, the spectacle of sunlight shining down a long narrow passage to light up the inner chamber of Bryn Celli Ddu on the longest day of the year is unforgettable. Excavation now suggests the site had significance for prehistoric people that lasted for millennia after the earth mound was raised over a stone passage grave.

The monument, whose name translates as the mound in the dark grove, was first excavated in 1865 and heavily reconstructed in the 1920s, but excavations over the last three summers – with members of the public joining archaeologists – are unveiling 5,000 years of human activity in the landscape.

Paleontologists like us are used to working with fossils that would seem bizarre to many biologists accustomed to living creatures. And as we go farther back in Earth's history, the fossils start to look even weirder. They lack tails, legs, skeletons, eyes…any characteristics that would help us understand where these organisms fit in the tree of life. Under these circumstances, the science of paleontology becomes significantly harder.

お漬物やピクルスが好きな私

(あ。。奈良漬けは苦手



個人的には、京都のお漬物屋さんの、大根のお漬物が好きなんだけど、


家でも作れたらなぁ~っと思いつつ。。。



面倒くさいかもっと




でも、今はキットになってるのがあるんだね~




夏野菜がお安い季節なので、チャレンジしてみるよ~



お得意の・・・ポチっ!でち




いろんな種類が売ってたけど、ホーローの容器付きのを選んだよ。



ジャーン!




野菜さえあれば、すぐに漬けれますよん。



陶器製の水抜きもついてます




口コミを読んだら、これがあると、すごく便利らしいわ~



作り方もあるよ





さぁ。。漬けてみるでぇ~~~




まずは、王道のキュウリ&ナス




容器にぬか床を入れて~~~



野菜を入れて、見えないよう、ぬか床をかぶすだけ~~









あ! 作り方には、「ナスは縦半分に切る」って書いてたのに、


そのまま入れちゃった



ま。。。いいかぁ~(笑)



保存は冷蔵庫で




ピッタリのサイズでいい感じ~



ミルミルの右横の容器は、ポンちゃん用の煮野菜(FPでトロトロ済み)





キュウリは15~25時間~ ナスは36~48時間 漬け込むみたい。
 



お手入れは、5日に1回かき混ぜるだけ。 (冷蔵保存の場合)




ぬか床が薄くなってきたら、付属のウマウマの素みたいなのを入れるんだって。





出来上がりが楽しみ~




米ぬかはお肌にもいいらしいので、ママンのお手手も綺麗になるかもでち

Skeletal evidence shows that, hundreds of years after the Roman Republic conquered most of the Mediterranean world, coastal communities in what is now south and central Italy still bore distinct physical differences to one another -- though the same could not be said of the area around Rome itself.
