starting with just four people, 3 centuries after Polynesians settled the island also known as Rapa Nui famous for its massive stone statues Although circumstantial evidence had hinted at such contact this is the first direct human genetic evidence for it In the genomes of 27 living Rapa Nui islanders the team found dashes of European and Native American genetic patterns The European genetic material made up 16% of the genomes; it was relatively intact and was unevenly spread among the Rapa Nui population suggesting that genetic recombination which breaks up segments of DNA has not been at work for long Europeans may have introduced their genes in the 19th century when they settled on the island Native American DNA accounted for about 8% of the genomes Islanders enslaved by Europeans in the 19th century and sent to work in South America could have carried some Native American genes back home but this genetic legacy appeared much older The segments were more broken and widely scattered suggesting a much earlier encounter—between 1300 CE and 1500 CE But did Polynesians land on South American beaches or did Native Americans sail 3500 kilometers into the Pacific to reach Rapa Nui “Our studies strongly suggest that Native Americans most probably arrived [on Rapa Nui] shortly after the Polynesians” says team member Erik Thorsby an immunologist at the University of Oslo He thinks that could support the controversial theory posited by Norwegian adventurer Thor Heyerdahl more than a half-century ago that Native Americans had the skills to move west across the Pacific But many scientists say that Pacific currents and Polynesian mastery of the waves make it more likely that the Polynesians were the voyagers They may have sailed to South America swapped goods for sweet potatoes and other novelties—and returned to their island with South American women Sweet potato was domesticated in the Andean highlands and researchers recently determined that the crop spread west across Polynesia before Europeans arrived Another hint of trans-Pacific exchange comes from chicken bones—unknown in the Americas before 1500 CE—excavated on a Chilean beach which some believe predate Christopher Columbus Skeptics say that genetic evidence from modern human populations is not enough to prove ancient contact The genetic clock is often uncertain says anthropologist Carl Lipo of California State University Long Beach “We need ancient DNA from skeletal evidence—not modern evidence—to resolve this question” *Clarification 27 October 11:50 am: Erik Thorsby is described as supporting the hypothesis that Native Americans voyaged on their own to Easter Island Thorsby like most scientists believes it much more likely that Polynesians brought Native Americans to the island VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – Pope Francis has called for an end to violence in Nicaragua where at least 15 people were killed this week in protests against President Daniel Ortega and his proposed changes in social security Speaking to tens of thousands of people in St Peter’s Square for his Sunday address Francis expressed his "sorrow for the serious violence with dead and wounded carried out by armed forces to repress social protests I pray for the victims and their families" Francis the first Latin American pope in history said the Church was always for dialogue "but this requires an active commitment to respect freedom and above all life I pray that all the violence ceases and conditions are put in place to resume talks as soon as possible" At least 15 people were killed and more than 200 injured on Wednesday in one of the worst days of violence since protests against Ortega began more than a month ago police said on Thursday The bloodshed was condemned by the Central American country’s Episcopal conference of Catholic bishops which called it "organised and systematic aggression" Local human rights organization CENIDH say at least 100 people have been killed since the protests began (Reporting by Agnieszka Flak; Editing by Raissa Kasolowsky) This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed Polynesians from Easter Island and natives of

farmers’ individual investments millions of dollars were spent without creating any return until the past few years — and even then the return has been only minimalAnother failure was the wheat co-op with its Georgia bakery That money simply disappeared completely and forever never to be seen again The magic of the co-ops had come to an endCorporation turnSort of While much smaller than Crystal Dakota Growers reached its limit as a co-op There still was demand for growth but that growth just couldn’t happen as a co-op The investors understood this and they made the only logical business decision: They turned the company into a corporation and sold it The co-op had proven to be a great investment The farmers made lots of money; and for now at least a manufacturing plant exists in North Dakota If we’re lucky the owners will keep investing and the plant will stay here IssuesAs for American Crystal today it is the most successful agricultural investment in the region But there are problems some of which were created by poor management decisions Take the current contract Such things as restrictive work rules and 100 percent payment for health care premiums are as much the fault of past management as they are of the union Management should have just said no But today management and the farmer owners know this and they’re aware that things will not stay as they have been in the past They also know that the immediate past — which has seen sugar prices in the range of 50 cents per pound — has been an aberrationAnd they know that when the sugar program changes — and change it will — survival could be problematic There are no guarantees even with a well-run company Acknowledging management’s past culpability I believe that if things remain as they are today — including the cost of labor — then the end of American Crystal is certain And it won’t be the fault of the farmers When the farmers proved willing to follow technology’s lead and to invest millions in increased farm and factory productivity they did all they could do That has meant there are fewer farmers than in the past but the farmers understood and accepted this reality A co-op is simply another way of doing business It eliminates the double taxation of a regular corporation And American Crystal is a business not a welfare agency Ask the bankersKingsbury can be reached at

Kogi West had said Fani-Kayode got healed of political blindness before him He said this in a video where he dumped the APC for the PDP However Fani Kayode who was a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) before he defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said the difference between him and Melaye was that he recognised evil in APC has no blood on his hands and raised the alarm of ‘genocidal tendencies’ in the party before 2015 when Buhari became its presidential candidate The former minister in a series of tweets wrote “I have always loved my aburo Sen Dino Melaye and I am overjoyed by his return to the ranks of the righteous “The difference between me and him is that I joined the then opposition party in 2013 for only 9 months long before it was recognised as a political party by INEC before it was named APC and long before Buhari became its pres candidate “Unlike Dino I recognised the evil in them and left them long before they came to power in 2015 Unlike Dino I raised the alarm about their genocidal tendencies their fascistic disposition and their jihadist agenda and I fought them to a standstill in the 2015 pres election by boldly speaking for PDP and Pres Jonathan “To add to that I have opposed their evil ways and demonic agenda consistently without fear or favor for the last 3 years and I have paid a heavy price for doing so For the last 4 years I have been one of the leading voices of the opposition in the country so I have paid my dues It is time for Dino and co to pay theirs “I told the world that we must stop the APC at all costs from getting power because from what I had seen during my short time with them they would kill people lock them upterrorise the nation and abuse that power if they ever got it I was proved right “Dino and cosaw the evil in the APC and instead of following my lead and leaving they stayed there pitched their tent with them fought for them spoke for them campaigned for them ensuring that they won power and openly supported the evil that they subjected Nigerians to for the last 3 years “In those 3 years many of our people were murdered demonized locked up humiliated detained subjected to trumped-up and politically-motivated criminal charges and brutal witchunts criminalised misreprsented threatened intimidated and demonised Many were totally destroyed and may never recover “Unlike Dino and those that supported Buhari brought him to power and have clapped for him for the last 3 years I do not have blood on my hands and neither can I be blamed for any of the atrocities that he has committed because I opposed him stood up to him resisted him and fought him every day for the last 4 years “I cannot say the same for my brother Dino and co who have only just seen the light because they stayed with the evil called Buhari and supported and applauded him for those 3 horrendous years They turned their back to the light and chose to espouse the darkness” Prime Minister Theresa May has confirmed that all EU nationals living lawfully in the UK will be able to continue their residency after Brexit At a European Council summit in Brussels the PM also maintained that the UK will have full jurisdiction over these rights However PM May has made it clear that she wants that reciprocated by the 27 countries in the EU Currently around 12 million British nationals live abroad in the EU according to Migrant Watch The Prime Minister proposed a "fair and serious offer" that all EU nationals who were living in the UK before she triggered Article 50 in March will be entitled to stayPM May has also said that she doesnt want to "break up families" implying that spouses and children will be able to stay too She has not commented on whether EU nationals will be able to claim child support for children living in the EU There are around three million EU nationals living in the UK at present Prime Minister May refused to meet EU demands that the "cut-off date" after which EU citizens are no longer automatically entitled to stay in the UK should fall on the day that Britain leaves the European UnionA recent study by YouGov has shown that the majority of the UK is in favour of a "hard Brexit"Credit: YouGovUnder the current plans those who have already lived in the UK for five years will be granted "settled status" and allowed to permanently live in BritainIf an individual is an EU national and arrived in the UK before the "cut-off date" they will also be entitled to stay permanently as long as they remain in Britain for at least five years The "cut-off date" has not been agreed on yet The offer will even apply to those who arrive just a day before the date Those who arrived after the cut-off date will have a "grace period" of up to two years during which they can apply for another form of immigration status such as a work permitThe British Prime Minister said that the "cut-off date" would be up for negotiation and could fall at any point between March 29 2017 the date that Article 50 was triggered and the date that Britain leaves the European Union The UK is expected to leave the EU in March 2019As the "cut-off date" has not been decided it leaves many of the three million nationals living in the UK unsure of their statusThe permanent residency application is currently 85 pages long and has attracted a lot of complaints and criticism and PM May has pledged to streamline the process May said at a dinner in Brussels: "The commitment that we make to EU citizens will be enshrined in EU law and enforced through our highly-respected courts The UKs position represents a fair and serious offer one aimed at giving as much certainty as possible to citizens who have settled in the UK building careers and lives and contributing so much to our society"A senior official has said that EU citizens will have the same rights as British people They said: "We will be aiming to treat them [EU migrants] as if they were UK citizens for healthcare
