Here's an alternative history account, based on archaeological finds, that claims the Ice Age melt-waters resulted in the inundation of the Black Sea during the time of Dardanus, around 1500 BC.

I'm making tapioca pudding and was wondering about how it was introduced to my community. Here's one history on it...

According to the MINUTE® Tapioca Company, tapioca pudding originated in 1894 by Susan Stavers, a Boston housewife, who took in boarders. Among them was an ailing sailor who had brought some cassava roots from his journeys. Hoping to soothe the sailor, she made a sweet and delicious tapioca pudding from the roots. To create a smoother consistency, Stavers took the sailor's suggestion of putting the tapioca through the coffee grinder. The pudding turned out smooth, and Susan received rave reviews from her boarders. Soon news of her dessert spread, and Stavers was regularly grinding tapioca, packing it in paper bags and selling it to the neighbors.

John Whitman, a newspaper publisher heard of this wonderful recipe, bought the rights to Susan's process and the MINUTE® Tapioca Company was born. It became part of the General Foods family in 1926 and part of Kraft Foods, Inc. in 1989.

Archaeology is rewriting history again...We were NOT as we were taught. Here is a story that tells us that in neolithic times, as many as 15, 000 people lived together peacefully and without kings and the wars they demand of the people that serve them.

Old Europe is a term coined by archaeologist Marija Gimbutas to describe what she perceives as a relatively homogeneous European Neolithic culture in southeastern Europe located in the Danube River valley.

Europe's ancient history should be re-written! Long before Rome came into existence and before Greece flourished, the Thracian stirpes have populated vast areas of the European continent and they left their mark on its whole history.

This newer information about the Kurgan Culture may actually dispels the myth of Aryan Invasion into India. The 'arya' of India are the Brahmin class and their haplogroup is R1a, which  arose 18,500 YBP. As this ancient DNA research of Kurgan burials shows, the Kurgans belongs to the R1a1a7-M458 subclade, which is a mutation off of the R1a haplogroup that arose about 10,000 YBP around Poland. While it's possible that Brahmin Indians are the ancestors of Kurgans, it is NOT possible that Kurgans are the ancestors of Brahmin Indians. The idea that Steppe nomad brought religion to India is now officially dead, if you ask me.

A study published in 2012 states that "R1a1a7-M458 was absent in Afghanistan, suggesting that R1a1a-M17 does not support, as previously thought, expansions from the Pontic Steppe, bringing the Indo-European languages to Central Asia and India."[13] However, this study does not in any way conflict with the hypothesis of expansions from the Pontic Steppe, since the study does not take into account the early wave of the Indo-European speaking people. Even today the R1a1a7-M458 are very rare, almost absent, in the area of the proposed Indo-European origins between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea; the R1a1a7-M458 marker first started in Poland 10,000 years ago (KYA), and arrived in the western fringes of the Pontic steppe 5,000 years ago and the eastern fringes only 2,500 years ago, while the first Indo-European wave (4500–4000 BC Early PIE) began up to 4,000 years before this.

Heartbleed . . . two-thirds of the web might be down for emergency bypass surgery over the next few days!

Question: What can cybercriminals access by taking advantage of the [Heartbleed] bug?

Answer: User names, passwords, instant messages, emails, business documents and business communications were all accessible during tests by the researchers.

"This [error] allows attackers to eavesdrop on communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and users," they wrote on an website with information about the bug.

Wow! Who needs hackers when the programmers make mistakes like this???
