    The Human Brain is Shrinking According to New Study

    Why is this not a surprise.

    Published November 17th 2021 (1:04)
    This article claims the volume of our skulls has increased by 200 cc or the size of a tennis ball. Maybe the shrinkage version is a psyop to make us believe we're getting dumber.

    Date:
    May 30, 2012
    Source:
    University of Tennessee at Knoxville

    sciencedaily
    Quote Lee Jantz, coordinator of UT's Forensic Anthropology Center (FAC); Richard Jantz, professor emeritus and former director of the FAC; and Joanne Devlin, adjunct assistant professor, examined 1,500 skulls dating back to the mid-1800s through the mid-1980s. They noticed U.S. skulls have become larger, taller and narrower as seen from the front and faces have become significantly narrower and higher.

    The researchers cannot pinpoint a reason as to why American head shapes are changing and whether it is primarily due to evolution or lifestyle changes.

    "The varieties of changes that have swept American life make determining an exact cause an endlessly complicated proposition," said Lee Jantz. "It likely results from modified growth patterns because of better nutrition, lower infant and maternal mortality, less physical work, and a breakdown of former ethnic barriers to marriage. Which of these is paramount we do not know."

    The researchers found that the average height from the base to the top of the skull in men has increased by eight millimeters (0.3 inches). The skull size has grown by 200 cubic centimeters, a space equivalent to a tennis ball. In women, the corresponding increases are seven millimeters and 180 cubic centimeters.

    Skull height has increased 6.8 percent since the late 1800s, while body height has increased 5.6 percent and femur length has only increased about 2 percent. Also, skull-height has continued to change whereas the overall heightening has recently slowed or stopped.

    The scientists also noted changes that illustrate our population is maturing sooner. This is reflected in the earlier closing of a separation in the bone structure of the skull called the spheno-occipital synchondrosis, which in the past was thought to fuse at about age twenty. Richard Jantz and Natalie Shirley, an adjunct assistant professor in the FAC, have found the bone is fusing much earlier -- 14 for girls and 16 for boys.

    America's obesity epidemic is the latest development that could affect skeletal shape but its precise effects are unclear.

    "This might affect skull shape by changing the hormonal environment, which in turn could affect timing of growth and maturation," said Richard Jantz. "We know it has an effect on the long bones by increasing muscle attachment areas, increasing arthritis at certain joints, especially the knee, and increasing the weight bearing capacity."

    The research only assessed Americans of European ancestry because they provided the largest sample sizes to work with. Richard Jantz said changes in skeletal structure are taking place in many parts of the world, but tend to be less studied. He said research has uncovered shifts in skull shape in Europe though it is not as dramatic as seen in the U.S.

    The findings were presented on April 14 in Portland, Ore. at the annual meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists.

    Quadrantid Meteor Shower 2022 - 17 Meteors in Real Time - Quadrantiden 2022

    Der Quadrantiden Meteorschauer ist der erste Meteorschauer des Jahres. Zum Maximum können unter optimalen Bedingungen über 100 Sternschnuppen in der Stunde beobachtet werden. Damit gehört er neben den Perseiden und Geminiden zu den stärksten alljährlichen Meteorschauern. Leider war es in diesem Jahr häufig stark bewölkt in meiner Region, trotzdem konnte ich aber einige Meteore beobachten. Aufgenommen habe ich die Aufnahmen in Niedersachsen.

    The Quadrantid meteor shower is the first meteor shower of the year. At the maximum, over 100 shooting stars per hour can be observed under optimal conditions. This makes it one of the strongest annual meteor showers alongside the Perseids and Geminids. Unfortunately this year it was often very cloudy in my region, but I could still observe a few meteors. I made the recordings in Lower Saxony, Germany.

    STRANGEST Vintage Inventions

    Without the world’s inventors, we wouldn’t have anywhere near the range of time saving, and ingenious products that we’re able to buy. Of course, for every one that sees commercial success, there are plenty that fall at the first hurdle, and you’ll hardly believe some of the ideas that have been patented and marketed over the years. Prepare yourself, as it’s time to take a trip into the past to look at the strange, the surprising, and the downright shocking as we look at 15 bizarre vintage inventions.

    Psychic Abilities Everyone Can Unlock

    Since the start of recorded history, psychic abilities have been documented, exposing the supernatural gift that some use to look beyond the physical world and reach into the spiritual. In this video, we'll discuss a small fraction of the psychic abilities humans are known to possess, and which some say simply requires education, training, and practice. Let's start.
