‘How to Build a Human’ is an origin story that’s strange but true
“And then there’s our combination of high intelligence and abilities to cooperate. There’s no other mammal that cooperates with such intensity.”Turner’s book describes the key milestones that our prehuman ancestors achieved on the way to becoming Homo sapiens. For example, Nariokotome Boy, a Homo erectus discovered in 1984, apparently died young as a result of a gum infection. Turner’s book shows how the challenges of environment, climate swings, predators and food extraction helped drive our evolution. “There’s been a lot of appropriate and overdue appreciation of diversity,” Turner said.washingtonpost.com

DANIA BEACH, Fla. — A look up and down Michigan’s depth chart on defense and you’ll notice some familiar faces.

Michigan football still searching for INTs in new defense
But with a new coordinator and scheme that emphasizes keeping the ball in front of the defense, turnovers are a crucial part of having success. It’s not that players have been out of position; they’ve just had trouble holding on to the ball. Michigan likes to flash man-coverage, disguise blitzes at the line of scrimmage and mix in zone to keep opposing quarterbacks thinking. Last season, despite his career day against Michigan, Lombardi finished the six-game schedule with more interceptions thrown (nine) than touchdowns (eight). “To be a great secondary, you’ve got to be loud, you’ve got to communicate, you’ve got to work as one,” Macdonald said.mlive.com

California prosecutor: Driver tried to kill Trump supporters
A defense lawyer said Turner tried unsuccessfully to get help from deputies Saturday in Yorba Linda after her group was overwhelmed by a hostile crowd. Turner saw people with guns and feared for her life when she got into her car that was blocked by Trump supporters, attorney Ludlow Creary II said. He knows of only one other instance where that wasn't the case when a man drove into a people rallying in support of police officers in Eaton, Colorado, in July. Armour said it may be difficult for prosecutors to prove Turner tried to kill someone because it requires showing she was more than just reckless or negligent. But they were quickly outnumbered and threatened by the other group, Creary said.

What to drink to help you sleep
Turner via CNN(CNN) - When winding down, you might enjoy sipping a beverage before bedtime, but are there any drinks that could be particularly helpful or harmful for quality sleep? It turns out that experts advise avoiding certain beverages before bedtime -- whereas the research on beverages to promote quality sleep remains not as clear. A small study published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine in 2013 suggests refraining from consuming caffeine within six hours of going to sleep. As far as what might be helpful for sleep quality, some studies suggest that consuming milk might help improve falling asleep -- even warm milk mixed with honey. Going to bed even mildly dehydrated can disrupt your sleep, according to the National Sleep Foundation.
