One dead and three injured at a T.I concert

The fight started between two rival rap groups led by emerging rappers Maino and Troy Ave.

A shootout took place at the Irving Plaza just before the Grammy-winning rapper took the stage. Witnesses say that there was a scuffle in the VIP area which was crowded. The fight started between two rival rap groups led by emerging rappers Maino and Troy Ave.

A witness says that the VIP was too crowded, and it was just a matter of time before a fight erupted. He couldn’t be more right as a scuffle broke out after one too many pushes. The witness says that the fight may have started because of pushing, but the original confrontation was because of a woman that both crew members had a history with.

One of the people in the VIP pulled out a gun shot it up in the air before shooting someone in the chest. The man died on arrival to the hospital. Troy Ave was also one of the people to get injured in the crossfire.

The crowd scrambled for safely after the gunshots, but luckily nobody got seriously hurt. “It was real loud as it was in my ear,” said Kirk Elphage, 41, of Harlem. “People were using each other for shields. It was unbelievable.”

The police have however not made any arrests or charged anyone for the incidence. The public blames the police for inadequate security measures enforced in such concerts. They usually use a hand held metal detector which is very inefficient. This allows many people to go through with weapons. But the public also recommended the police for their quick response that reduced chances for any more injuries.

New evidence shows Neanderthals were quite intelligent

Researchers previously believed that Neanderthals were afraid to go deep into caves due to lack of light.

Archeologists have found a ringlike structures in the Bruniquel Cave in France. The ringlike structures are clearly not natural as they look to have been carved out of the stalagmites in the caves. The rings also date back to the Neanderthal period concluding the theory that the ancient humanoid designed them.

The rings are numerous in number and seem to have been placed in a pattern of some kind as illustrated by 3D projections of the cave. This proves that the Neanderthals were actually intelligent enough to construct structures.

The cave is also quite deep. Researchers previously believed that Neanderthals were afraid to go deep into caves due to lack of light. However, the Bruniquel Cave is over 1000 feet deep. The Neanderthals seem to have created a home in this deep cave.

“What is most surprising to me is that this discovery is showing that Neanderthals ventured underground and far away from any source of natural light, ” says Soressi and archaeologist on the site. “I think we have by now many different lines of evidence to show that Neanderthals, and even Neanderthals 200,000 years ago, had cognitive abilities not so different from our direct ancestors.”

In the deep cave, there is evidence of burnt stalagmites at the center of the cave. Scientists believe that this may have been a fireplace for the early humanoids. They also seem to have created fire torches from bone pieces. The soft fatty tissue at the end of bones may have acted as a fuel to keep the flame burning.

Fans to have more say in movie scripts

Fans of Marvel have expressed their disappointment with Captain America’s relationship with Peggy Carters Niece.

The voice of the fans is getting clearer and louder. So much so, that Hollywood is paying attention. Tools such as social media has turned fans into worthy contributors. Proof of this is the trending hash tag#GiveCaptainAmericaABoyfriend.

Fans of Marvel have expressed their disappointment with Captain America’s relationship with Peggy Carters Niece. Recently, the fans voted that James Bond should be a woman. They have even gone as far as fronting LupitaNyongo, Helen Mirren, and Gillian Anderson for upcoming roles.

This idea is not a new. In the past, fans voted on who should play Doctor Who. They also voted to get Star Trek to run for a few more seasons. In most cases, the feedback was not entertained by creators. However, a paradigm shift is in the making.

Social media has changed the tide to the fans favor. It is way easier for anyone with a keyboard and The Internet to locate creators. If the complaining fans can collect into a large enough group, then the creators have to take note.

Creators are gradually taking a pro fan position. The iconic figures are being altered to fit the specifications of the fans. Star Wars has led the pack. Casino Royale has responded in kind.

A more human persona has replaced the perfect James Bond stereotype. This willingness to change the rule book is the first in many steps. Fans are casting doubt on traditional ideas. Hollywood is nothing without fans.”It sends signals fan discussion is being heard,” a Marvel representative said, the creator of the Marvel sequel.

Oldest beer recipe unearthed

This is peculiar as there is no evidence to support that the crop was grown in Asia at the time.

Scientists have discovered evidence of beer brewing in China. The archaeological site dates back to 3400 BC. The most surprising bit of this info is that there is evidence that the Chinese used barley as part of their recipe. This is peculiar as there is no evidence to support that the crop was grown in Asia at the time. The Barley use has led scientists to think that perhaps intercontinental trade started much earlier than previously thought.

The beer brew facility proved that the art has changed very little over the 7000 years of drink making. The Chinese used a fermentation pot much like the one used today. They also used a fermentation technique very similar to the one used today.

However, their recipe was unique to that used in Europe at the time. They used barley has their main ingredient, but added Chinese pearl barley was giving it both a sour and sweet taste. “All indications are that ancient peoples, including those at this Chinese dig site, applied the same principles and techniques as brewers do today,” said McGovern, an expert in ancient fermented drinks.

The Chinese were however not the first people to partake in beer. Iran records the earliest evidence of creating a distiller. Egypt follows next with a more sophisticated method of beer creation.

Scientists assume that the reason for beer has always been the same since its first invasion. It was meant for tension breaking. This is evident from the most of the big empires having a brewery by 2000 BC.
