Sometimes the surprise is in discovering just how much we dont know. In 2008 a bone from a childs little finger was found in Denisova Cave in the Atlai Mountains of Siberia. Few other bones were found and it was therefore unclear whether the finger bone came from a modern human or from a Neanderthal; whats more, the deposits were mixed up, and it wasnt clear how, or if, the bones were associated with the stone artefacts also found in the cave. In the days before DNA analysis, Denisova Cave would have been just another archaeological site, with little new to tell us. But in the event part of the finger bone was sent to Svante Pbos laboratory, and our knowledge of human evolution changed for ever.

Yayoi Kusama next to her Dot Car (1965), from Kusama-Infinity, (photo by Harrie Verstappen, courtesy Magnolia Pictures)
Visiting the Museum of Modern Art in New York, in the late 60s, the Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama is well-known for having asked, What is modern here? I dont see it. By this time, she had moved to New York, survived a suicide attempt, and crashed the 1966 Venice Biennale where she, uninvited, covered the Italian Pavilion with reflective spheres made of plastic. The installation was called Narcissus Garden and Kusama stood amidst it in a kimono, with her signature bangs and heavily lined eyes, selling each sphere for $2 to passersby. The subversive act of an uninvited Japanese artist selling her art for cheap did not go down with the officials and she was promptly asked to leave. She only had one question, Why cant I sell my art like ice creams or hot dogs?
Heather Lenzs recent documentary, Kusama-Infinity explores Yayoi Kusamas life, art, and her incessant struggle to be seen, to be respected, and to be given her due. It obviously tells the story of her life but also goes beyond the biographical timelines to peek into the real person behind the woman who sits facing the camera in a bright red polka dotted dress with a shock of red hair. It describes the woman behind the activism and the nude protests, which were often dismissed as gimmicks.
Her life is a flurry of emotionally charged moments. As a child, Kusama would draw very fast so that she could finish a piece before her mother snatched it away. When her desire to create art got unmanageable, her mother agreed to send her to art school only if Kusama promised to attend etiquette school a promise she would eventually break. Her father, whose family owned a large seed business in Matsumoto City, would have several affairs and her mother would often send Kusama to spy on him. During World War II, she would sit and sew parachutes for the Japanese troops. From childhood onward, Kusama was forced to do things she did not want to. In 1955, she wrote a letter to Georgia OKeefe admiring her work and asking for guidance. When OKeefe finally replied, Kusama was ready to leave for New York City. She burned around 2000 o...

As an emerging cog in the global digital economy, cloud mining offers a tool for enthusiasts to mine cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin without having to acquire hardware or other oft-required elements. On the heels of this development, growing numbers of companies are offering cloud mining accounts at an affordable cost.
Once established, cloud miners become participants in a mining pool that allows them to purchase certain levels of hash capacity. This gives them a share of profits proportional to the amount of hashing power thats been allotted to them. Since cloud mining is facilitated by the cloud, issues associated with equipment maintenance and energy costs are mitigated. All mining rigs are housed and maintained by a host company, with the user simply needing to register and buy mining contracts or shares.
New Energy, New Solutions
On course to become a formidable player in the cloud mining world is Hashtoro, a U.K.-based cloud cryptocurrency service that provides a turnkey means of acquiring computing power without the need to purchase hardware or actually mine cryptocurrency.
Hashtoro is equally suited for everyday users as well as companies seeki...

A horse in a white speedo swims to the end of a pool, while another horse in a red blazer looks on, the hills of Los Angeles unfurling in smoggy greens and blues in the background.
Thats a David Hockney! you yell at the screen in smug and surprised victory. Albeit its two anthropomorphized horses where Hockney and his former lover once were in the 1972 Portrait of an artist (pool with two figures), but the visual semblance is too strong to ignore.
You find yourself excitedly pointing out Warhols and OKeefes to no one in particular. Is that a Lichtenstein? you wonder out loud.
This is the experience of an art-history nerd watching Bojack Horseman, the critically acclaimed animated comedy series and cult hit on Netflix that brutally satirizes Hollywood, or rather, Hollywoo. The series about to release its fifth season follows the trials and tribulations of the titular character, a fifty-something pill-popping, bottle-hitting actor whose heydey was the schmaltzy 90s sitcom Horsin Around. He seeks to recapture that fame while also navigating his web of equally narcissistic self-destructive friends and frenemies, humans and anthropomorphized animals alike.
And all the while in the background, like a low-grade art fever, the show plants iconic paintings, photography, and sculpture.
Netflix will release the new season September 14, and it is no exception to the previous ones with the likes of Georgia OKeefe, Claude Monet, Thomas Kinkade, Wassily Kandinsky, and many more adding to the rich visual fabric of the show.
Animated and live-action series alike have paid homage to famous artworks before. The Simpsons Did It meme is relevant here. That show has used Edward Hoppers Nighthawks (1942) and Hieronymus Boschs The Garden of Earthly Delights (14901500) to name a few instances, but perhaps no series h...

Now that the controlled mainstream media have drummed up a connection between the Fort Hood shooter, Major Nidal Malik Hasan, and a Muslim cleric with links to the alleged 9/11 highjackers, we should stop and recall how the FBI had investigated a company whose workers received warnings of the 9/11 terror attacks, and apparently did nothing about it. Two workers from the instant messaging company Odigo, had received warnings just two hours prior to the attacks. At the time of the attacks, Odigo had offices in both Herzliya and New York , and their New York office was then situated just under a kilometer away from the WTC complex.
Government apologists and 9/11 debunkers like to point out that because the World Trade Center towers were not specifically mentioned in the messages that somehow the Odigo warnings were insignificant when it came to investigating the attacks. Other government gatekeepers, like the Anti-Defamation League, have taken the opportunity to turn the story of the Odigo warnings into the "four thousand Jews didn't show up for work" rumor, and have used it as disinformation in their pathetic propaganda (see Unraveling Anti-Semitic 9/11 Conspiracy Theories).
Although the FBI had been assigned to investigate Odigo over the warnings, the recipients of the messages, their connections to the sender, and how the sender knew of the attacks, remains unknown. It should also be noted that there is no mention of Odigo in the official 9/11 Commission Report.

When we come upon a scene like this in nature, we might stop for a photo, perhaps force ourselves to meditate for a moment, searching for peace and a spiritual connection, before quickly moving on. Mark Tribes Balsam Lake Mountain Wild Forest, Ulster County, New York, from the series New Nature (201617), allows us to linger more than we might in the wild, where fellow hikers, inclement weather, or mosquitoes compel us to be on our way. It allows us to enjoy the scene.
According to a wall text accompanying this piece, we are more likely to experience nature on a digital screen than in an immersive setting. In an age of virtual reality and inescapable human impact, is nature as real as it used to be? asks Tribe. And how could we use technologies of simulation (including relatively straightforward ones, like video) to preserve the experience of a vanishing wilderness? By providing a voyeuristic view, the artist awakens us to a primal urge to get outside, to smell the moss, to feel the ferns and...

It is useless to fight against peoples rigid ways, or to argue against their irrational concepts. You will only waste time and make yourself rigid in the process. The best strategy is to simply accept rigidity in others, outwardly displaying deference to their need for order. On your own, however, you must work to maintain your open spirit, letting go of bad habits and deliberately cultivating new ideas. Robert Greene
Imagine you are back in high school and a bully starts making fun of you in front of everyone. What do you do? Poke fun back? Cry? Run? Punch him in the face? What? The answer is none of the above.
The best way to deal with a bully who is making fun of you is to make fun of yourself better than the bully did. The worst way to deal with a bully is to retaliate. This is because retaliation perpetuates the bullys agenda and leads to violence, whereas making fun of yourself uses self-deprecating humor to derail the bullys agenda while forcing the bully into a confused psychosocial dilemma. Its a power-play, and its all psychological. The bully expects you to poke fun back at him, or cry, or run, or throw a punch; anything but you making fun of yourself. And if you can do it better than the bully did, then bully for you. Pun intended.

Feeling important makes one heavy, clumsy and vain. To be a warrior one needs to be light and fluid Self-importance is mans greatest enemy. What weakens him is feeling offended by the deeds and misdeeds of his fellow men. Self-importance requires that one spend most of ones life offended by something or someone The average man is hooked to his fellow men, while the warrior is hooked only to infinity.
Lets shed the heaviness of self-importance and don the lightness of humor instead. Lets feel offended but then let it go, like a sponge absorbs water and then squeezes it out. The key is not to linger with the pettiness of the offense but to transcend the offense through a humor of the...

Long story short, Chinas leading regulatory bodies have recently begun their second crusade against the propagation of crypto assets, imposing a series of harsh rules, laws and advisory messages in a bid to curb the growth of this industry. In spite of the heavy-handed regulatory moves, a Chinese cryptocurrency startup still intends to establish a secure custody service.
As divulged by a recent report from the South China Morning Post (SCMP), InVault, an up and coming Shanghai-based startup, will be launching a crypto asset custody product that will be targeted at Asian crypto exchanges. CEO and founder Kenneth Xu spoke with the SCMP on the need for exchange-focused custodial products, stating:
Today, the vast majority of cryptocurrency exchanges globally still involve their senior management in managing the transfer of digital tokens ordered by clients. Putting the private keys to your cryptocurrency assets in the hands of senior management is akin to putting all your money in their control.
What Xu is alluding to is the risk in allocating your crypto holdings to a centralized exchange-owned wallet, which may be vulnerable to security breaches as seen with the recent hacking of both Bithumb and CoinCheck. As Xu later added, exchanges might see immense value in InVaults service, as these platforms should be primarily focused on facilitating the purchase and sale of crypto assets, rather than the tedious processes required to safely store cryptocurrencies.
The startups CEO also noted that in traditional capital markets, securities are always held in the hands of a central depository, not an exchange, so it makes sense that the cryptocurrency industry should act in a similar manner.
And it seems that InVaults unique take on the custody model has already attracted a prospective client, with the firm executive revealing that an exchange has already submitted an order for the storage of one million Ether ($200 million USD).
However, some fear that regulatory concerns will put the newly-established startup out of business. Governmental bodies in Beijing have enlisted a series of measures to stamp out crypto, which include the...

The German army captured Blanc Mont Ridge in the early months of World War One and occupied it throughout the years of fighting, fending off repeated French assaults throughout 1915 and 1916. While the ridge looks far from imposing, it is a piece of high ground which overlooks a large part of the front in the Champagne region of France, and was a very valuable outlook for artillery observation. Its continuous occupation allowed it to be heavily fortified by the Germans as a major strong point in their defensive lines.
In October of 1918, the task would fall to the American Expeditionary Force to take the ridge as part of the ongoing offensive that was finally pushing the Germans back all along the front lines. Years of war had gradually sapped the strength of the German forces, and the last gasp spring offensive earlier in the year had destroyed the last remaining units of elite German troops. And yet, the still had their fortifications here, armed with more than 350 machine guns on this ridge alone.
On the morning of October 3rd, 1918, a combined force of US Army and Marines (the 2nd and 36th Infantry Divisions) set off on an attack up the gradual slope towards the ridge. The attack was preceded by only a few minutes of artillery fire and then a creeping barrage behind which the men advanced. A thick layer of ground fog was perhaps their best ally, as they began the assault of the German position. A fierce fight left the positions on the front of the ridge in American hands by the end of the day, although the fighting would be tenacious for several days, as the Americans advanced well beyond the supporting French units on their flanks, and were left exposed on the reverse slope of the ridge.
By October 7th, the ridge position was consolidated, and the French and American forces continued their advance towards the next objective, the town of Saint-tienne--Arnes. American casualties in the assault would come to approximately 7,800 men this was not a position relinquished easily by the Germans. The battle was considered a major accomplishment at the time, although it ha...

Australia's financial intelligence czar Nicole Rose says she is shocked at the depth of money laundering in the economy involving organised crime, child exploitation and drug importation. "I thought coming from the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission that I had a pretty good handle on serious and organised crime," she [said]. "I didn't appreciate the depth and breadth of involvement with private entities and banks. I didn't appreciate how many industries it does actually touch. There's a misperception that money laundering is a victimless white collar crime. It has a massive impact on everyday life whether that's child exploitation, serious and organised crime or drug importation. It all involves money laundering." A career public servant specialising in anti-terrorism strategy, Ms Rose was appointed chief executive of the Australian Transactions Reports & Analysis Centre (AUSTRAC) in November last year. Ms Rose, a former deputy head of the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission, inherited AUSTRAC's high stakes case against the Commonwealth Bank which is fighting almost 54,000 allegations that it broke anti-money laundering and anti-terrorism financing laws. While not commenting directly on the CBA case, Ms Rose said she was confident that all Australian banks are now aware of the money laundering risk. However, Ms Rose was uncertain when the $10,000 reporting threshold on cash transactions would be extended from financial institutions to other high-risk sectors.
Note: Explore an eye-opening article by Fiona Barnett, which claims the Watergate break in's real purpose was steal a list of high level political pedophiles from both parties. As reported in this Sydney Morning Herald article, Ms. Barnett testified to Australia's Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse on being a victim of a high level pedophile ring. More on this is available in this article from the UK's Daily Mail.
After seven days of listening to more than 160 girls, women and parents describe the impact of his sexual abuse, disgraced gymnastics physician Larry Nassar turned to the courtroom Wednesday and quietly attempted an apology, saying, "There are no words that can describe the depth and breadth for how sorry I am for what has occurred." Then Judge Rosemarie Aquilina read from a letter Nassar wrote last week in which he expressed very different sentiments. In the letter, Nassar complained about the length of his sentencing hearing, maintained that his touching of patients was legitimate medical therapy and termed some of the alleged victims' accounts "fabricated." As Aquilina read excerpts, some in the courtroom gasped. "My treatments worked, and those patients that are now speaking out were the same ones that praised me," Aquilina said as she read Nassar's words. "The media convinced them that everything I did was wrong and bad ... Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned." The judge then addressed Nassar directly. "It was not treatment what you did; it was not medical," Aquilina replied. Finally, Aquilina delivered her sentence - a minimum of 40 years, a maximum of 175 years in Michigan state prison - effectively guaranteeing a life sentence for the 54-year-old former Michigan State University and USA Gymnastics team physician, who also faces a 60-year sentence for federal child pornography crimes.

Woody Norris aims the silvery plate ... demonstrating something called HyperSonic Sound (HSS). I pace out a hundred yards. Norris pelts me with the Handel. The sound is inside my head. Imagine, he says, walking by a soda machine (say, one of the five million in Japan that will soon employ HSS) ... then hearing what you alone hear -- the plink of ice cubes and the invocation, ''Wouldn't a Coke taste great right about now?'' An HSS transmission can travel 450 feet - at practically the same volume all along its path. In past months, Norris and his staff have made a further, key improvement to HSS -- instead of sending out a column of sound, they can now project a single sphere of it, self-contained, like a bubble. [And] there are Defense Department applications. Norris [has] been busy honing something called High Intensity Directed Acoustics (HIDA). Although [it] has been routinely referred to as a "nonlethal weapon," ... in reality, HIDA is both warning and weapon. If used from a battleship, it can ward off stray crafts at 500 yards with a pinpointed verbal warning. Should the offending vessel continue ... the stern warnings are replaced by 120-decibel sounds that are as physically disabling as shrapnel. Certain noises, projected at the right pitch, can incapacitate even a stone-deaf terrorist; the bones in your head are brutalized by a tone's full effect whether you're clutching the sides of your skull in agony or not. "HIDA can instantaneously cause loss of equilibrium, vomiting, migraines - really, we can pretty much pick our ailment," he says brightly. Last month, [Norris' company] A.T.C. cut a five-year, multimillion-dollar licensing agreement with General Dynamics, one of the giants of the military-industrial complex.
Note: This entire article is well worth reading if you want to understand just how advanced these dangerous weapons are. And there is little doubt that this weapon can cause death. Remember the article was written in 2003. Sound weapons developed for war are now routinely used against civilian populations. Explore an excellent, well researched article going into more detail on these weapons.

This year, the distribution company Icarus Films turns 40 years old. Over its lifespan, Icarus has been one of the champions of international documentary cinema in the US, bringing to theaters and home video countless films that may have otherwise gone completely overlooked. The companys catalogue is filled with works whose experimental style, radical politics, or provenance in foreign countries would have had them written off as noncommercial by most other distributors. Before the internet opened up the accessibility of world cinema, Icarus was a vital outlet, and even deep into the online age it continues to spotlight great documentaries which may otherwise go overlooked.
To mark Icarus Filmss ruby jubilee, the Metrograph in New York City has put together a massive retrospective. Icarus Films at 40, running from September 14 to September 30, will screen over 50 movies from throughout the distributors history. The staggering breadth of this series allows it not just to chronicle the lifetime of one film company, but also the last four decades of social upheaval, evolving documentary aesthetics, and changes in left-wing film thought. There are multiple legendary directors represented, including Shohei Imamura, Jean Rouch, Peter Watkins, Marcel Ophls, Alain Resnais, John Akomfrah, and Jean-Luc Godard. It includes works weve previously covered here at Hyperallergic, such as Wang Bings Bitter Money (2016), about textile workers in China, and Nikolaus Geyrhalters Our Daily Bread (2005), about various processes of food production across the world. Every film in the program is noteworthy in some way, but here are a few representative standouts....
Over the past few months, investors of ETH, the native cryptocurrency of the ever so popular Ethereum project, have had to fight off bears at every turn, as the asset has been battered by negative news and wavering sentiment on a daily basis. Although significant progress is being made for the project, ETH has recently plunged to establish a new year-to-date low under $200.
As with any trending topic, the demise of ETH has been a topic of thorough discussion with cryptocurrency analysts, investors, and leaders alike, even in the furthest edges of the crypto industry. Everyone and their dog had something to say about Ethereums violent decline, with many taking to social media platforms to express their two cents on the matter. While there was a large presence of contrasting, emotion-based opinions, there were a few gems that brought logic and reason to the decline in the price of Ether.
One of those notable gems was an insightful tidbit of data from cryptocurrency researcher Kevin Rooke, whose work NewsBTC covered just recently. On Monday, Rooke continued to show his analysis prowess via a tweet, alluding to the relationship between Ethereums price and ICOs, with this relationship being touted as a primary reason why ETH has tanked as of late.
ICOs have spent over $30 million worth of ETH this week (153,500 ETH).
This is more than any week since March 2018.
The scary part? These ICOs still have over $600,000,000 worth of treasury ETH in their accounts (3,000,000+ ETH).
Will they sell? Will they hold? pic.twitter.com/DlGGziEBAZ

Following his capture of a burglar, Jamie Oliver revealed the incident has now inspired him to start a new campaign to introduce a better standard of food in Britains prisons. He told reporters: It all came about when I was sitting on this guys head waiting for PC Plod to arrive. The geezer was proper distraught and told me as a hopeless recidivist he now feared that hed be back inside within a few days, quite literally eating grey cold and lumpy tasteless porridge.
Well in my book thats bang out of order! Criminals would respond better to jail sentences if instead of these horrible slops they were given nice plates of my unctuous pasta, my spicy curries and delicately pan-fried sea bass at grub time. So Im in negotiations with Channel 4 for a new series that will see me and one of my mates visit prisons around the Mediterranean then go out for a free nosh and piss-up session at a nice Michelin starred restaurant nearby.
Bitcoin (BTC) is being squeezed into a tight trading range with neither bulls nor bears currently having the upper hand.
Havent you fantasized about being a 1930s woman wearing that elegant dress that your favorite Hollywood actress wore during her time? Perhaps you're looking forward to sewing your own dropped-waist dress, just like the ones which were in style during the early 1920s. If so, let's take a quick look Continue reading
There are the high speed car chases in Bullitt, Smokey and the Bandit, Baby Driver and the French Connection, and then theres this.
A high speed bicycle chase shared by Derbyshire police and its gripping stuff (takes a while to get going and then youll with it til the finish).
This was the moment Scott Liddle was disturbed by an @AlvastonSNT PCSO, acting suspiciously near to the bike shelter at the rear of #Derby train station. After a chase, the 37-year-old was arrested for going equipped to steal bikes from Pride Park. https://t.co/bRQDjGxZRf pic.twitter.com/CttRCZyAMQ

Kind of disappointed the police cyclist isn't going "nee naw, nee naw!"

This is fantastic! PCSO on s bike chases and catches a bike thief on a cycle path I helped to build and now do maintenance work on. This is better than the Steve McQueen car chase in Bullit! https://t.co/NrEXDyiRC7
