Sherpas like Tenzing Norgay, who along with Edmund Hillary first conquered Everest, have inherited genes from a long-extinct human sub-species that help them cope with living high in the mountains. A 160,000-year-old jawbone found in a cave has revealed the ancient human species Denisovans lived at altitudes of 11,000ft. Scientists say the extinct race of Neanderthal-like humans lived on the oxygen-starved Tibet plateau more than 100,000 years ago. They also discovered the Denisovans passed on genes that help some modern-day people survive at high altitudes. The jawbone was unearthed in Baishiya Karst Cave in Xiahe, China, which stands at an altitude of 10,760ft (3,280m). It is the oldest hominin fossil ever found in the vast Himalayan region. Previously, physical evidence of Denisovans had only been known from fossils from a single cave site in Siberia.

The California gold-rush town of Grizzly Flats was founded in 1851. People came for the gold but stayed for the trees. Lumber from lush forests supported Sierra Nevada foothill towns for decades. Then, one August night in 2021, the Caldor Fire roared out of the Eldorado National Forest and in less than 15 minutes, Grizzly Flats was gone. Today, the community's anger is still raw. Many residents blame the U.S. Forest Service for letting a few-acre blaze morph into a monstrous wildfire. In our months-long investigation, we found evidence of mismanagement by the Forest Service and critics who say its outdated tactics and overgrown lands have led to millions of acres and foothill towns burning needlessly. We went to Grizzly Flats to see for ourselves what happened that August night when a wall of fire ripped through town. Candance Tyler: I took a couple pictures of my house knowing that that would be the last time I ever saw it. Bill Whitaker: You knew that? Candance Tyler: Yeah, I … [Read more...] about How U.S. Forest Service mismanagement fueled California’s Caldor Fire
Grizzly Flats had stood in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada in California since 1851. Lumber was the economic backbone of the region for decades. But it took only 15 minutes one night last August for nea of the town to be destroyed, engulfed by the Caldor Fire that had roared out of the Eldorado National Forest. The fire would burn for two months, scorching more than 200,000 acres and costing $271 million to extinguish. It started as a small plume of smoke about four miles south of Grizzly Flats at 7 p.m. on August 14th, 2021. Since the fire was on federal land the U.S. Forest Service was in charge, responsible for calling in firefighters and resources. A 60 Minutes investigation discovered that problems started right away: maps were out of date, firefighters had trouble locating the fire. As she was listening to her police scanner, resident Candance Tyler said her heart sank. "They're sending them down Caldor Road. Well, it's been washed out for three years," Tyler told … [Read more...] about Residents of California town say U.S. Forest Service let Caldor Fire get out of control

Enlarge this image Collection of the Supreme Court of the United States/Getty Images Collection of the Supreme Court of the United States/Getty Images After a tumultuous term that ended in June, the U.S. Supreme Court returns Monday to officially open a second potentially stormy term. It may be hard to beat last term's sustained and dramatic turn to the right, which included most prominently the overturning of a half century of precedents that had guaranteed women the right to terminate most pregnancies. But the court may well rock the boat again, despite the fact that it finds its approval ratings plummeting to historic lows. So much so that Chief Justice John Roberts sought to defend the court's legitimacy while speaking to a conference of judges and lawyers in Colorado. "Decisions have always been subject to intense criticism, and that is entirely appropriate," he said, "but lately, the criticism is phrased in terms of ... the legitimacy of the … [Read more...] about The Supreme Court will begin a new term with more contentious cases on its docket
