July 20, 2014 4:47 AM MH17 Ukraine made serious money from airline overflights

The exact sums have not been publicly established, but Ukraine had tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars at stake from flights that used its air space to save time and fuel and other operating costs while flying between Asia and Europe. The value of these sky toll gates may well be the elephant-in-the-room when it comes to the absurdity of Eurocontrol 17

July 19, 2014 4:55 PM Dutch victims remembered outside Kiev embassy

Kiev: Grief, peace, fury and fear are the soil beneath the many blooms outside the Dutch embassy in Kiev. Here there is a sunflower. There, a stark printed sign under waterproof plastic declaring “Putin is murderer”. Here, a baby-blue elephant toy, grinning reassuringly in the field of fading flowers and candles. There, “Poetin Doodt Kinderen” – Putin 50

July 18, 2014 1:25 PM To Help Boost Growth, Should Microsoft Sell Nokia to Lenovo?

Since I estimated on July 7 that Microsoft Microsoft – in which I have no financial interest — would fire 12,500 people, I was not surprised about its announcement on July 17. But the 18,000 was about 50% more than I had expected. Firing people does not make a company an interesting investment — growing faster than a its markets, however, can be a great 17

July 16, 2014 1:20 PM Does Amitabh Bachchan’s Yudh lack the zing of Anil Kapoor’s 24?

It is odd, even slightly unfair, to compare –let alone analyse–the two shows in question 24 and Yuddh headed by two dramatically different actors – Anil Kapoor and Amitabh Bachchan – who ruled the silverscreen with elan. But the elephant is in the room now and we just can’t ignore i!. The parallels will be drawn-albeit hastily-given the fact the two big-screen 32

July 16, 2014 10:08 AM ‘Prices just keep rising’

The economic situation for the ordinary people is certainly not improving. The increase from 3.00% to 3.25% of the OPR (Overnight Policy Rate) on July 10 means that one has to pay higher interest on servicing one’s personal loans, housing and car loans and credit card payments.

July 15, 2014 7:10 PM North American Gomphothere Discovery Expands Knowledge of Clovis People

An ancient ancestor to today’s elephant was hunted by the earliest North American people. The gomphothere was believed to have disappeared in North America long before humans arrived. Today’s discovery obliterates that notion. Archaeologists recently discovered artifacts belonging to the prehistoric Clovis culture interspersed with bones of two gomphotheres 6

July 15, 2014 7:06 PM Native Americans KILLED and ATE GOMPHOTHERE with bare arms

Elephant ancestor gomphothere had a sorry tale. They were destroyed not by nature or by other beasts, but by humans who hunted them till the last. This may look like unbelievable to most of us who are witness to so many animal conservation efforts. We spend billions and billions of dollars annually to save different species whom we think are endangered 6

July 15, 2014 4:47 PM Gomphotheres, Elephants’ Distant Ancestors, Were Hunted By Man

There were a lot of things on the menu for early Americans—deer, antelope, buffalo. But if you really wanted to eat well, and you were an especially early early American, there was nothing quite like a good haunch of gomphothere. That, it turns out, may have been one of the staples of the prehistoric Clovis culture, and while plenty of people never heard 31

July 15, 2014 3:07 PM Early Americans dined on four-tusked elephant relative, say scientists

Archaeologists have unearthed 13,400-year-old weapons crafted by the Clovis people mixed in with bones from an extinct elephant relative. On a ranch in northwestern Sonora, Mexico, archaeologists have discovered 13,400-year-old weapons mingled with bones from an extinct elephant relative called the gomphothere. The animal was smaller than mastodons and mammoths 18
