Letter On Lucy's Child

There was a letter to the editor in my local paper on Monday about the September 21 article of the fossil of "Lucy's Child" in the Nature Magazine.

The writer says scientists are not only the smartest people on the planet, they are also the funniest. He says the picture on the cover of the National Geographic looks more like an ape.
And he found hilarious the comments: "The [scientists] have already begun making striking discoveries, including a tiny throat structure that suggests ... her wails probably sounded more like a chimp than a human baby" as hilarious.

Obviously, this person does not know anything about anthropology like the scientists do. And humans are apes, look it up an encyclopedia.

Back To School

This Monday, I am going back to school. I am taking the Digital Media program at a local college. I have been wanting to upgrade my computer skills and get a diploma in something that I am capable of doing. I am hoping after six months of training in the field that I will be able to make a career out of it.

Remember September 11

I was watching Live with Regis and Kelly at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, September 11, 2001, when they showed the first tower on fire. I went downstairs thinking it was nothing important. Later, I heard my mom say “oh, no!” The second plane hit the other tower.

I went back upstairs and watched as they showed the aftermath of the plane hitting the Pentagon, the collapse of the towers and the remains of the final plane in Pennsylvania.

Looking back, not much as changed in American’s attitudes towards Middle Easterners and vice versa. We should remember those who died in the terrorist attacks and not blame the government for what happened or exploit it for the purpose of one’s beliefs and opinions.

Conspiracy Video

In the comment section in oen of my posts on myThe Truth Hurts blog , someone named anonymous sent me a link to a video on "what really happened" on September 11. It is nothing more than a conspiracy theory as it lacking in real depth.

Only interviews with firefighters and heresay (secondary sources), the narrator has not the interviews himself and there are no experts to confirm his theories.
He claims the buildings were blowing away by explosions or bombs but he provides inconclusive evidence to suggest bombs were planted in building and whether explosions were bombs.

He suggests that the steel in the buildings would not burn, yet evidence show the buildings collapsed from structure damage.

According to Discovery’s What Really Happened Inside The Twin Towers, there were survivors around the 7th floor of one of the buildings. It is noted by one of the firefighters that if you were below this area you would have been crushed and if you were above it, you would have been part of the collapse.

But the major questions are what about the two other planes, the one that crashed at the Pentagon and the other that was brought down in Pennsylvania? What about the terrorists that hijacked the planes and Usama bin Ladin and Al-Qaida confirming the terrorist plot? Were there bombs planted at the Pentagon and the White House?
