History’s Lost Transoceanic Voyages: Tamils and Sumerians Among the FIRST to Reach Australia and Antarctica …

Regarding interesting inscriptions and shapes found by satellite archaeology, revealing what might be ancient human occupation on the continent of Antarctica, author William James Veall writes that epigrapher, educator and anthropologist, Dr Clyde Winters, Ph.D. was of the opinion: “ I have looked at the inscriptions from Australia and they appear to be written in TAMIL.”

On Plate 5, Dr Winters wrote: “It was unlikely that there was any connection between Hanuman and the Indus Valley, because monkey figures do not appear on Indus Valley seals.”

He further stated, “I believe this is a human figure. It would appear that these heads are leaders from various Sumerian centers that formerly existed on Antarctica.”

 “These people were probably from the Sumerian colony in South America, called Kuga Ki.”

Paper airplane, sand among 12 finalists for Toy Hall of Fame

A one-time carnival worker accused in the 42-year-old unsolved disappearance of two young Maryland sisters pleaded guilty to charges of first-degree murder Tuesday, though he stopped short of admitting he killed them.

Lloyd Lee Welch Jr., 60, pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree murder in the March 1975 kidnapping of Sheila Lyon, 12, and Katherine Lyon, 10, of Kensington, Maryland. One of the most high-profile unsolved cases in the Washington, D.C. area, the girls’ disappearance baffled investigators for more than 40 years.

The Washington Post reported that Welch was being held accountable for their deaths because even though he denied killing the girls, they died “in the commission of abduction with the intent to defile.”

Welch was sentenced to 48 years in prison as part of an agreement with prosecutors. The defendant, who was scheduled to go on trial Tuesday, made the plea deal, in part, to also

Woman trying to locate rescue worker husband among many searching for loved ones missing in Harvey’s floods

The wife of a missing rescuer in Texas is holding out hope that he survived a risky jump into the surging waters — to avoid certain death by electrocution.

She last saw Ben Vizueth on Monday when he streamed his rescue expedition to Facebook, footage that shows a freelance photographer documenting light-hearted moments in Harvey’s muddied waters northeast of Houston.

KTRK-TV reports that witnesses said seven men, including Vizueth, were on board the boat when it drifted dangerously close to an electric pole. All of them jumped into the flooded Greens Bayou just south of U.S. Route 90.

They were last seen in the Facebook video near the Coolgreen corridor in Harris County.

Harvey makes second, pre-dawn landfall in Louisiana

Three of those boaters were found alive, but suffering from burns Tuesday. The trio survived by clinging to trees, according to the Houston television station.

City’s new interim DA praised among peers

Thursday evening Kelley Hodge was appointed to serve as the interim District Attorney of Philadelphia in a special election by the Board of Judges.

The Board of Judges’ election process was a rare one – it hadn’t happened in 26 years. But Hodge’s appointment as the city’s top prosecutor is remarkable, too. She is the first African-American woman to hold the position. She will be sworn in during a public ceremony at City Hall on Monday.

Soon after her appointment, Hodge called the opportunity an honor.

“I’m really looking forward to returning to an office that I’m familiar with alongside people that I know do tremendous work day in and day out,” she told The Tribune.

Following her selection, activist and attorney Michael Coard took to Twitter to praise Hodge, along with Court of Common Pleas Judge Frederica Massiah-Jackson, who chaired the special committee for the interim election, and President Judge Sheila Woods-Skipper, calling

They Walk Among Us: the mysterious true crime podcast that’ll keep you up at night

Do they have no shame? On 15 August, Donald Trump stood in the lobby of his eponymous tower in New York and heaped praise on racists, bigots and fascists. There were, Trump averred, “very fine people” among the group of neo-Nazi marchers who had spent the previous Friday in Charlottesville, Virginia, chanting “Jews will not replace us.”

The president’s remarks should have come as no surprise to anyone with even a passing familiarity with his life story. Trump has a long and well-documented history of racism, nativism and xenophobia: from refusing to rent his father’s apartments to black families in Queens, New York; to reportedly keeping a book of Hitler’s speeches in his bedside cabinet; to repeatedly questioning the citizenship of the first black president of the United States.

Yet what of his colleagues, who stood silently by as their boss went off the rails. What happened to
