40,000-year-old bracelet made by extinct human species found

In what is quite an amazing discovery, scientists have confirmed that a bracelet found in Siberia is 40,000 years old. This makes it the oldest piece of jewelry ever discovered, and archeologists have been taken aback by the level of its sophistication.
The bracelet was discovered in a site called the Denisova Cave in Siberia, close to Russia's border with China and Mongolia. It was found next to the bones of extinct animals, such as the wooly mammoth, and other artifacts dating back 125,000 years.
The cave is named after the Denisovan people — a mysterious species of hominins from the Homo genus, who are genetically different from both Homo sapiens and Neanderthals.

 

 

Just my opinion, but I do not believe human evolution is quite as simple as most "evolutionists" make it out to be.

A find in Australia hints at very early human exit from Africa

 

As archaeologist Chris Clarkson was excavating a rock shelter in northern Australia one day in 2015, May Nango of the aboriginal Mirarr group brought her grandchildren to look at the pit. She pointed to a spot near the back wall of the red sandstone cliff and told the children that it was a wonderful place for their ancestors—the "old people"—to sleep 65,000 years ago, says Clarkson of the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia.

 
Nango's tale was more than an aboriginal "dreamtime" story. She was one of the first to hear from Clarkson's team about new scientific dates for the Madjedbebe rock shelter in Australia's Arnhem Land, a region the Mirarr still call home. The dates, based on new excavations and state-of-the-art methods, push back the earliest solid evidence for humans in Australia by 10,000 to 20,000 years and suggest that modern humans left Africa earlier than had been thought. Published this week in Nature, the findings also hint at when modern humans interacted with other archaic humans.
 
This early date will force the field to "rethink fundamentally the whole issue of when our species started to colonize Asia," says archaeologist Robin Dennell of the University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom.

New study shows that chimpanzees of all ages and all sexes can learn rock-paper-scissors

Chimps of all ages and genders can learn the circular relationship used in rock-paper-scissors, a new study has shown.
The study, Learning the rules of the rock–paper–scissors game: chimpanzees versus children., was carried out by Jie Gao of Kyoto University in Japan and Peking University in China, lead author.
Gao's team wanted to see whether chimpanzees and children had comparable abilities to learn the game, and by doing so see whether chimps could understand extended patterns.
Because the relationship between the game's three signals is non-linear, learning such patterns requires enhanced metnal capacity.
