Harris' paper describes Stone Age societies in which the mother of a newborn had to decide whether she had the resources to nurture her baby. The newborn's appearance probably influenced whether the mother kept or abandoned it. An attractive baby was more likely to be kept and reared.
Harris' theory is that this kind of parental selection may have been an important force in evolution. If Stone Age people believed that hairless babies were more attractive than hairy ones, this could explain why humans are the only apes lacking a coat of fur. Harris suggests that Neanderthals must have been furry in order to survive the Ice Age. Our species would have seen them as "animals" and potential prey. Harris' hypothesis continues that Neanderthals went extinct because human ancestors ate them.
This is a good opportunity to discuss when to listen to scientists and when to ignore them. None of her theory above has anything to do with her area of training. She is not an anthropologist, she is not an archaeologist, she is not a biologist, she is not an historian. There is no reason to lend credence to her theory any more than she would consider anything I had to say about psychology.
There is no evidence that Neanderthals were furry. There is no evidence that modern man considered Neanderthals animals. There is no evidence that any human society, stone age or not, ever killed their children based on their attractiveness or hairiness, and there is certainly, without a doubt, absolutely no evidence that modern man killed and ate Neanderthals into extinction. None, nada, zip.
Now, if I were to write something about psychology, I might say that Ms. Harris' article is about her own feelings. She harbors deep-set feelings of remorse over having children during her prime career years. She thought she would have time after her children to return to her work, but instead became ill, bed-ridden with lupus and systemic sclerosis. Subconsciously she believes her pregnancies were the cause of her illness and she places these feelings in the only safe place she can: into the minds of stone-age mothers who murder their children when they are born.
Yes, of course that's a crock, I'm no psychologist, I only read her biography at one of the links up above. No one would ever listen to a computer science major spout off about psychology.
And neither should anyone listen to a psychologist spout off about prehistoric human cultures, what those cultures considered attractive and whether they killed their babies and ate their enemies.

This reminded me of a story I read awhile back about some 8 year old twins unearthing a 2.5 carat diamond at Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas. Stories like that make me want to set my own 8 year old to work with a shovel... maybe there's a 7,000 carat rock just waiting for her to find it -- like some missing lotto ticket from Richmond.
Update, the mystery deepens
Update 2, fake! Made of plastic.
Today, though, he was only booed as his Glasgow Rangers advanced over the Belgrade Red Stars.
"I went to the home of my uncle in a neighboring town that is 26.1 miles from home," said XEBRA owner Jon Faux of Elkhart, Indiana. "After arriving and seeing he was not home, I decided to attempt the impossible and return home without any additional charging. While I didn't make it, I did make it to the home of a friend after 50.2 miles per charge. The first thing I did was call my dealer and tell him the good news!"I'm afraid the first thing I would have done is sell my car if it wouldn't go 52 miles. Sell it and maybe buy back the 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado I drove back when I was at Ball State. The one in the picture is Jay Leno's -- mine was Maroon. The '66 Toronado was the first front-wheel drive car since the 1930's, had 119 inch wheel base and weighed nearly 4500 pounds. It had a 425 cubic inch V8 engine with a four barrel carburator and a 25 gallon gas tank. True, it only got 12 miles to the gallon, but 12x25 gets you a lot further than 50 miles.
It's not that I'm not green -- just call me nostalgic. Shoot, for $30 a year I can buy a Terrapass to offset the CO2 emissions of driving the Toronado to work everyday -- just like Al Gore does for his mansion and his private jet flights. I'll just put a Terrapass bumper sticker on the back of my muscle car so nobody will hate me and tool the roads in style while saving the planet... just as green as that fellow from Elkhart who puttered to a stop in his high-tech golf cart before he could reach home.
While this may be marginally better for carbon emissions and energy security, it is proving horrendous for food prices and anyone who stands in the way of a rampant new industry. A year or two ago, almost all the land where maize is now being grown to make ethanol in the US was being farmed for human or animal food. And because America exports most of the world's maize, its price has doubled in 10 months, and wheat has risen about 50%.
The Guardian is alarmist, especially later in the article, but there's a grain of truth in what they say (no pun on "grain" intended). Paying top dollar for grain to convert it into fuel raises the price and lowers the availability of food -- and it doesn't offset Carbon Dioxide very much, if at all.
Of special note, the Bluffton News-Banner Sports Round-Up, linked above, also mentions that Ashtyn Humerickhouse was named to the Indiana Tech all-tournament team at the University of Michigan Early Bird Tournament. Ms. Humerickhouse is a past Norwell standout and daughter of Sevens member Noreen (Huyghe) Humerickhouse.

The answer is: Mercury is used in the refining process that creates large amounts of Lithium 6 (Li-6) which is one of the main components of thermonuclear fusion warheads. Mercury is converted to lithium and lithium is the fuel that is bombarded by an atom bomb (fission bomb, like Hiroshima) to make it achieve a hydrogen fusion reaction. Get that? Atom bombs are the triggers that set off fusion bombs.
It wasn't that long ago when there was a bobcat loose in Fort Wayne and the police ended up killing it. And if I remember correctly, wasn't there a big, black cat videotaped over around Decatur last year... maybe a leopard, or a panther? Whatever happened with that?
What do you call those things? Anyone? Anyone?
Rubber table leg tips.
So I bought them from hardwareandtools.com and they arrived today: perfect fit.
If the police caught Brett Favre running a dolphin-fighting ring out of his pool, where dolphins with spears attached to their foreheads fought each other to the death, would they bust him? Of course not. They would get his autograph, commend him on his tightly-spiraled forward passes, then bet on one of his dolphins.
There is only one solution - stay out of the bin if the auger is turned on. Field emphasizes there is virtually no way to escape once the grain sucks a person in. There are very few survivors, and those that survive are often saved by some miraculous circumstance.

Reintroducing the American Chestnut. Except for natural history buffs, few people remember what American chestnuts even look like. It took me months to realize I had three Chinese Chestnuts on my property -- I had never seen a chestnut before. So complete was the blight that wiped them out in the early 1900's, even my excellent, tree-identifying aunts and uncles didn't recognize the trees. What used to be a staple food, stored in attics and eaten all winter long, disappeared from America. I sent pictures and sample leaves to the American Chestnut Foundation, who verified mine were Chinese, and not blight-resistant American Chestnuts. Click on the picture above to get a close-up view.
How many theaters were there? The East 30 out on the way to New Haven, the Hillcrest out by Southtown Mall, The Ft. Wayne Drive-In right there on Bluffton Road near Waynedale, the LincolnDale Drive-In on Goshen Road out by the Zoo. Were there more? I remember one in Decatur and one in Huntington that were open long after those in Ft. Wayne had closed.
I miss them all.

The system contains hundreds of feet of polyethylene coils buried about five feet beneath the ground’s surface. These coils act as a huge radiator. They contain water with an antifreeze solution that is circulated under 60 pounds of pressure.
The system absorbs and exchanges heat in the ground. The fluid circulating in the pipes absorbs the ground’s heat when the weather is cold to produce warm air for the house. When the weather is hot, the system reverses. Heat is pulled from the building and deposited in the cooler ground to create cool air for the house.
These systems do not burn fossil fuel, so they don’t emit greenhouse gases or contribute to global warming. They are quiet, easy to maintain and extremely efficient. Ritchey said the WaterFurnace system achieves 500 percent efficiency.
The subdivision is called "The Bridges" and is located across from the new park on Locker Plant road.

The shift of American corn production to biofuels has created shortages in other nations. Taiwan experienced such a corn shortage in 2006 that China had to make up the shortfall from previous U.S. sources. Earlier in 2007, a dramatic rise in Mexican tortilla prices was blamed for the shift of American corn exports to ethanol. As forecast by Purdue University, Indiana ethanol production will shortly consume upward of 608 million bushels of corn annually. The result of this diversion, according to USDA chief economist Keith Collins, will be that "the livestock industry will face the challenge of dealing with higher feed costs" over the next several years.William J. Hudson of the ProExporter Network is much more blunt in his remarks from Aug. 2006: "Cheap feed grains like corn may not be possible in a world with crude oil priced at $70 a barrel or more. Cheap meat may not be either."
Although it's easy to minimize the impact of the women's coaching shortage--for example, fathers often introduce young girls to sports and remain active in their athletic development, so many female college players say they prefer playing for a male coach--here's why we shouldn't: most student athletes spend more time with their coach than with any other adult at school. Many coaches wield enormous influence on campus and in their communities. So what message is being sent to young women when men fill most of these leadership roles? "Their own expectations, their own aspirations are limited and distorted as a result," says Marcia Greenberger, a co-president of the National Women's Law Center.
It's unsettling that letters she wrote to her confessors and friends, which she specifically requested be destroyed at her death, are now the subject of a book. That said, I find her life all the more remarkable for the "dark years" she experienced. Not for everyone, I know, but if you have the time...
We recently celebrated our 30th year of escaping the halls of Norwell, which means Voyager I and Voyager II are celebrating their 30th year in Outer Space.
Norwell and Heritage played 21 times when they were members of the Allen County Athletic Conference. The last time the Knights and Patriots played was in 1988 before Norwell left the ACAC to join the Northeast Hoosier Conference.Norwell owns a 12-9 record in the series.
As a past member of the Norwell football team, I remember the Patriots very well. In fact, I think I still have a scar from Rex Counterman running over me into the end-zone. Or maybe it's just a dent in my pride.
Take special notice that the Norwell girls volleyball team wins again, with Sevens member Mike Painter's daughter Alison Painter, Sevens member Tim Baker's niece Alex Baker and Sevens member Jan (Amburn) Stronczek's daughter Lindsay Stronczek all on the varsity squad.
A pair of true freshmen in DeMarcus Grady (Grand Rapids, Mich./East Grand Rapids HS) and Chandler Harnish (Bluffton, Ind./Norwell HS) continue to battle for the No. 3 quarterback spot.
“Both have shown signs of promise, and both have the raw physical tools it takes to play quarterback,” Wittke said. “They have done a good job with keeping up with the fast pace of camp.”
Head coach Joe Novak said that by the time Northern Illinois begins “game week” preparations for the Huskies’ season opener with Iowa, either Grady or Harnish will be named the number three signal-caller.

Norwell had taken the first two games in decisive fashion, but then the Knights let the Vikings win the next two to force the fifth and deciding game.
However, the Knights finally woke up and defended their court, winning 25-19, 25-22, 14-25, 21-25, 15-12.“I feel like this team decides when [they do] and when they don’t want to focus,” said Norwell coach Josh Lee, who made his players run sprints after the match was over.
Ah, he let them take victory laps... what a thoughtful coach. Read the whole article, it's a nice write up.
Some see Engressia's relationship and understanding of the phone system as the beginning of the computer culture, and certainly many of the earliest pioneers in home computing studied his work and life with excitement. There have been pretenders and copycats, but there was only one Joy Bubbles. He was an inspiration to many, despite his troubled past and strange life.
INDIANAPOLIS (Aug. 22, 2007) This summer's attendance at the National City concert series at The Lawn in White River State Park doubled last year's attendance. More than 50,000 people attended 11 concerts this summer compared to 26,000 people at the same number of concerts last year. The National City concert series season began June 15 with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra and the music of Led Zeppelin and ended Aug. 9 with Bryan Adams with special guest George Thorogood & The Destroyers. In between, the season featured 3 sold out shows with The Fray, Bob Dylan and Incubus. Other acts that played included OAR, Snow Patrol, and Alison Krauss & Union Station.
The Lawn is on the same general campus as the Indy Zoo.

If you've followed the war news, you know many of the American casualties have been caused by IED's, Improvised Explosive Devices, planted along the roads and detonated remotely by cell phones or radio signals. Sue works for JFW Industries out of Indianapolis which makes components for Warlock Duke, the CREW system developed by Syracuse Research being used in IRAQ. A CREW system jams the radio signals that detonate IEDs.
Thanks for the story, Sue, and for helping to shepherd this system that's saving our soldiers lives.
The third annual "Dallas and Reid's Ride" will be held on September 15th. The 50 miles tour has a police escort and starts and ends at the Fraternal Order of the Eagles Aeries in Plainfield, IN (just southwest of Indy). See the link for registration information. Last year, more than 600 bikes participated; raising nearly $68,000 in pledges for Juvenile Diabetes. This year, organizers are hoping for 1000 bikes and $100,000 in pledges.

How would that compare to, say, doctors? Fort Wayne has more doctors wishing they could leave town than any other city? Or maybe, Fort Wayne has the best second and third tier doctors in America? How about, Lutheran, Parkview and St. Joe are great training grounds for doctors in Cleveland, Chicago, Indianapolis and Minnesota.
The summer has been hard on farmers and crop stress continues, despite the recent rain. It doesn't help the weather, but perhaps having the world's largest soybean, biofuel processing plant just down the way in Claypool (near Warsaw) will help our local farmers in years to come.
Update: Record Rainfall
Update 2: Tropical Storms Could bring Soybean Rust to Indiana
Note: January, 2005: Sevens member Tim Baker vs. Soybean Rust:
The threat of Asian soybean rust should not change the way a producer farms, according to a recent article in the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette. At a recent meeting of northeastern Indiana farmers, Purdue University agricultural economist Chris Hurt said that soybean rust could narrow the profit margins of farmers in the area, but planting different crops to avoid the disease would likely cost more. Hurt was among the speakers at a soybean rust workshop held in Fort Wayne recently, attended by about 120 farmers. "It could be devastating, we don't know, but the fear of the unknown may be bigger than what the reality of the disease really is," Hurt said. Tim Baker, who farms 2,500 near Ossian in Wells County, said he attended the workshop to develop a plan to deal with a soybean rust outbreak. He said he learned the best ways and times to apply fungicide in order to protect crops from the disease. "It's pretty devastating if you get it," he said.
I don't know what to say, really. Of course that door should have been locked and of course Purdue was at fault. It's hard to step back and see anything else but a young man's life cut short, but it currently costs approximately $15,000.00 a year to attend Purdue and it isn't the Congressmen or the Professors or the Administrators who are going to pay the $600,000 settlement -- it's the students and the parents and the tax payers. I'm not sure how much, if any, of the settlement will be covered by Purdue's insurance policies, but I'm sure rates will go up to cover the loss.
And what would I have done different if it had been my son? I'd rather not think about it.

August 20, 2007
Now, it is so, so much easier. Software like Family Tree Maker is amazing. It gets you started, prints out wonderful charts and searches online data endlessly for your ancestors and cousins. I've emailed with McAfee's I never would have known otherwise. And there are many other free genealogy sites online.
Rootsweb, for example, has a Wells County website. Click on "The Good Stuff" to find lots of old pictures and information about Wells County. There's so much data in just that one spot, you could browse for hours.
Genealogy.com has a location called "GenForum" where you just click on your last name and see folks you can email with all over the country, sometimes all over the world, investigating your name.
If you didn't know, the Mormon church (LDS) maintains a huge collection of genealogical records... now they are searchable at FamilySearch.org.
There are many, many other sites -- like Cyndi's list and the Genealogy Home Page and the National Archives genealogy site -- that can jump start about any search.

With the Bionic Woman returning to the Fall lineup on TV this year, it's interesting that technology has nearly caught up with science fiction. Oscar Pistorius is a South African man (thank goodness, he never would have made through grade school in America with a name like "Pistorius") who was born without fibulas. As you can see in the picture, he uses amazing prosthetic legs in his races and is nearing South African record times. Depending on coming rulings, he may even be in the Beijing Oylmpics.
Pistorius, of course, has no choice in this matter. If he wants to run, he has to use prosthetics -- a tip of the hat to his courage and ability -- but really, how is he any different from those who use drugs to enhance their speeds (or home run hitting training regime). I don't suspect anyone would ever cut off their own legs to get faster, but if Pistorius was a swimmer instead of a runner and had prosthetic swim fins made, would we be discussing whether that was fair or not? I think his advantage would be obvious in the water, but exists no less on land.
The series is just coming into the playoffs and the 1977 world series, so I'm looking forward to how they portray Reggie Jackson's amazing performance back then.
It sounds quite interesting and makes me wonder how things have changed in the schools since we were Bears, Dodgers and Wildcats. I don't know if we were all in the same socio-economic class back then or if we just cared so much less about such things, but we mostly seemed to get along., don't you think? At least for the most part.
I do know that when I coached Little League at Foster Park for a few years, and helped at Harrison Hill, Memorial Park and South Side while my older kids were there -- it seemed much more difficult to simply talk to each other than I remember growing up.
Interested in supporting the United Way? Why not attend the $11 a plate Fall Kickoff at Lighted Gardens on August 24th. (Cutoff was 8-18, but there may yet be time).
The remote purchase and loss of WOWO's Clear Channel license in 1994 was a real loss for the area.

My niece got married today and the location of the wedding, and the reception, was The Kopper Kettle Inn in Morristown, IN. I had never been to Morristown before, it's a small town a little south and east of Indy. The Kopper Kettle Inn used to be a grain elevator in the 1800's, and was converted to a Tavern and then a Tea Room. It was a small, but interesting choice for a wedding location -- the patio garden (above) where we sat for the ceremony was beautiful and even my two nephews fighting over the ring-bearer pillow didn't ruin the evening. That's one of the little guys on the left, trying to retrieve a penny from the fountain right behind the bride. The other one was pinned in a choke hold by their mother at this point.
The food was excellent -- like grandma used to make. Baked steak, fried chicken, green beans, corn, mashed potatoes -- all presented in large, heaping service dishes and passed hand to hand by the guests as if it we were having Thanksgiving dinner.
I don't know how many the Inn can seat at once, but there are many rooms and our party of 80 or 100 folks only took up, probably, half the place.
As I waited outside before the Wedding, I shot the breeze with an old man whose wife provides piano music for the regular guests every Saturday night. The whole place has a homey, laid back, family atmosphere. I recommend it, and the traffic around the building made it obvious that many people already know about it.
Check out the quotes by Sevens member Teri Rosinski in this News-Sentinel article today on how Title IX changed the perception of female athletes.
Teri Rosinski is among those athletes who can vouch for what conditions were like before and after Title IX.
Rosinski was 13 years old when Title IX was passed. She was named Miss Basketball and graduated from Norwell High School in 1977. She also played collegiately on scholarship at Illinois State.
"I grew up in a neighborhood with boys and played pickup basketball games with them in the summer," Rosinski said. "We had ready-made teams in my neighborhood. Basically, I made my own opportunities."
When Sevens member (and former North Oaks neighbor of the Rosinski's) Tim George took credit for Teri's success recently, I thought he was kidding -- turns out he was right. There are more quotes in the article, linked above.
Update: This could very well be an old article from the News-Sentinal... the banner at the top shows the current date and time & made me think it was new. Still interesting, though. As I looked through the yearbooks for the reunion, it was glaring to see the GAA pictures in the early years as an all encompassing picture of "girls sports."

Sevens member Brad Mattax is a regional rep for Upward -- and what a region... Brad covers not only Indiana, Ohio and Michigan, but his region extends to the entire Northeast of the United States:
Brad is originally from Ft. Wayne, Indiana. He started at Upward in September 2005. He has been an Upward Basketball League Director for 9 years, a Soccer League Director for 6 years, and a Flag Football Director for 2 years. He and his wife, Barb, have five children. Brad enjoys tennis and running Upward with his wife.We all know, of course, that this blurb on Brad is wrong. He was originally from Road One, just north of Ossian.
Note: Upward Sports, Fort Wayne Area.
You'll notice, in the article, that Sevens member Scott Elzey is a member of the school board.

If you know anyone with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS), you know how cleaning fluids, or perfumes or a wide variety of normal things found in homes or the workplace can trigger terrible headaches, weakness or dizziness. Thankfully, scientists, including Sevens member Dr. Barbara Sorg, are working to understand this disorder and its opposite (chemical addiction).
Sevens member Duane Heyne is the Construction Operations Manager for Pooly Enterprises out of Orlando. Duane has managed construction jobs for Lockheed Martin, NASA and even Disney World. How many of us have walked through the Asia Kiosk in the Animal Kingdom without knowing one of the Sevens helped put it in place?

Robert R. Brown, director of product development and marketing for WaterFurnace, says other technological improvements have propelled geothermal growth.
“What’s really changed, too, is plastic pipe,” he says. “It’s all thermally fused – the joints are fused plastic, so there are no glues and no clamps, and they don’t leak.” He calls the newer piping “very reliable” and maintenance-free, and says the life expectancy of the pipe “is about 200 years.”

The masks have been in use since La Casa del Gordo opened in January. Restaurant owner Gerry Geffen was intrigued after having seen masks used at restaurants in Mexico. General manager Felipe Gaytan says customers ask about the masks "all the time."
Customer Allen Strehler, 48, calls the masks "more of an image thing."
'Makes you feel good'"What really matters," Strehler says as he picks up a takeout lunch, "is how clean your utensils are in the work area and how the foods are treated before you get them."

Thus this site: Sevens (77).
I won't find out about everything, so send me information, if you want it added. And since many hands make easy work, just let me know if you want an invitation to add entries yourself, rather than just commenting, and I'll send an invite your way.
Lastly, by putting a little ad square and a search block on this blog, this site will hopefully generate funds for our next class event just by you reading this site. How? Well, you'll see an ad for various things on the right side of the Sevens page and every time someone views it or clicks on it, some pennies drop out of Google's pockets into the Sevens fund. Also, there is a search block at the bottom of the page, and every time someone uses it to search the Internet, there exists a possibility that Sevens will be credited. Easy and rather painless. I don't expect big things, but it will all go to our class and every little bit helps.
Note: Google gathers information. It's what they do. You should be aware of the following:
