first_imgOne man committed the greatest hoax in the history of anthropology, but others are not so easily exonerated for believing it.An eight-year study of the Piltdown Man hoax fingers Charles Dawson as likely the sole perpetrator, the BBC News reports. The fossil he allegedly “discovered” in 1912 fooled experts for 42 years, but it was a composite of a modern human skull and teeth with an orangutan jaw, carefully stained and compacted with gravel to look old. The “lone forger” conclusion (PhysOrg) is supported by these indications:Dawson knew what anthropologists were expecting to find, and made his forgery fit those expectations.As an amateur collector, he was motivated to make a name for himself.When the scientific world jumped on his claim in 1912, Dawson found “another” site in 1915 (Piltdown II) with similar teeth and bone fragments.The fragments at both sites used the same stain, dental putty and gravel-packing methods, suggesting the perpetrator acted alone.DNA from the ape fragments at both sites indicate they came from the same orangutan.Dawson was the only person associated with both sites.Scientists named the fossil after Dawson, calling it Eoanthropus dawsoni, or “dawn man of Dawson.” The BBC says that the lone-forger hypothesis exonerates others who were accused in retrospect when the hoax was discovered in 1953, including Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Museum paleontologist Arthur Smith Woodward announced the find with Dawson in 1912, but Dawson had first contacted Woodward about it. Dawson died in 1916, the year after his Piltdown II announcement.In The Conversation, first author Isabelle De Groote explains how her team concluded that the evidence “suggests a sole hoaxer was responsible.” One can sense the political and ideological preconditions that led to uncritical acceptance of the find:Dawson announced the discovery of the new fossil hominin – Eoanthropus dawsoni – together with palaeontologist Arthur Smith Woodward. It was Dawson who first contacted Woodward, then keeper of palaeontology at the Museum of Natural History in London, about having found a new human fossil. He wrote that the fossil would “rival” the German fossil jaw belonging Homo heidelbergensis, the first early human species to live in colder climates.Scientists had become increasingly interested in finding the missing link between humans and apes ever since the publication of Charles Darwin’s “Descent of Man” in 1871. The discovery of Piltdown Man put Great Britain at the forefront of palaeoanthropology by demonstrating that early humans had big brains and apelike jaws. The publication generated great interest from scientists and the general public alike.The fragments are still kept at the London Museum of Natural History. They should remind scientists and historians of the danger of uncritical acceptance of evidence. Could it happen again? De Groote cautions,Solving the Piltdown crime is still important now as it stands as a cautionary tale to scientists not to be blinded by preconceived ideas but to remain objective and to subject even their own findings to scientific scrutiny.Dawson died 100 years ago today (Aug 10, 1916). Although he had achieved recognition for his collections and papers, it appears he wanted more. De Groote thinks he wanted to be elected to the Royal Society, and he was willing to do whatever it took to reach that goal.Our own library and archival research has shown that Dawson was responsible for at least 38 forgeries (for example, the Roman inscribed tiles from Pevensey and a statuette excavated by Dawson during the late 1800s were found to be fakes too) .It has been suggested that his motive was scientific recognition and, in particular, his ambition to be elected a fellow of the Royal Society. Dawson wrote more than 50 publications but none up until Piltdown appears to have greatly furthered his career. He and his wife wrote letters asking for his recognition but even though he was nominated as a fellow, his nomination for election was not successful.He likely would have been elected, De Groote thinks, had he not died first. In the BBC article, she describes how Dawson listened carefully at meetings to discern what paleontologists wanted.“When a jaw and the skull bones were announced, there was a big discussion at the Geological Society about what the canine in such an animal would look like. And, ta-da – six or seven months later, a canine shows up and it looks exactly like what they had predicted.“This points out the need to be very skeptical when a find appears too good to be true. De Groote cautions scientists to beware of their preconceptions and never take anything for granted. “If something fits a hypothesis maybe too well, question it again,” she said.Another co-author shares her lessons from the Piltdown Hoax:Dr Laura Buck co-author on the paper from the Division of Biological Anthropology, University of Cambridge commented on the project’s importance. “Even today, over a hundred years after the Piltdown fraud was perpetrated, it remains relevant because of the huge impact it had on the course of Palaeoanthropological research at the beginning of the twentieth century.”Precious little was said in any of these articles, though, about the dupes. It took 42 years for the hoax to be revealed. The other suspects may not have committed the hoax, but they fell for it. Wikipedia says, “The examination and debate over Piltdown Man caused a vast expenditure of time and effort on the fossil, with an estimated 250+ papers written on the topic.” Clarence Darrow even introduced it as evidence for evolution in the Scopes Trial (Ibid.) but he, like many others, died before the hoax was announced. Why did so many experts believe in Piltdown Man for decades? Evidence of the fraud was quickly uncovered when the bones were re-examined in 1953. Chemical tests showed the fossils to be only a few hundreds of years old at most, not thousands or millions. Why didn’t anyone check them for 42 years? The BBC says that “scientists were only rarely given access to the Piltdown specimens themselves.” They were given plaster casts instead, De Groote says in her article.In The Conversation, De Groote points out that her own PhD students often find it difficult to gain access to fossils. “The field of palaeoanthropology is still very much a field of fossil hoarding,” she says in the BBC article. She thinks the situation has been improving, because fossils can now be scanned and shared. The BBC says, “the recent example of the Homo naledi skeletons being quickly made available as printable 3D files is extremely positive.”The articles fail to point out, though, that reproductions via 3D files and scans could fool today’s experts as much as the plaster casts of Piltdown Man did, because such reproductions leave room for a hoaxer to intervene. Who does the scan? Who supplies the 3D files? It was direct chemical tests on the original bones that revealed the Piltdown Hoax. Are today’s experts, with all their motivations and expectations, just as likely to fall prey again?Of course they are. Of course they do. Dead men tell tales that unbelievers want to hear.

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A conversation with…Cindy Shy, Bicentennial & Century Farms Program Manager for the Ohio Department of AgricultureOCJ: Could you provide a little background about how the Ohio Century Farm Program got started?Cindy: The program started in 1993, a joint effort between the Ohio History Connection, Ohio’s Country Journal and the Ohio Department of Agriculture. Families competed to be named as one of eight “Outstanding Ohio Century Farms” each year.OCJ: How has the program evolved through the years?Cindy: The competition lasted 10 years. Having to choose one farm over another back then must have been one tough job! I inherited the program in 2003. Since that year, any farm that qualifies is recognized as either an Ohio Century or Bicentennial Farm. A certificate signed by Governor Kasich and Director Daniels is provided to the family.OCJ: What is the current status of the program and how can eligible farm owners get their farms registered?Cindy: There are now 1,200 farms registered, with at least one farm in each county. We take registrations on an on-going basis — there is no deadline, and no fee to apply. The registration process takes some research — possibly for the family history, but definitely for the deed copies to document the transfers within the family. The registration form is available online (www.agri.ohio.gov/divs/cent_farms/) or by contacting me at [email protected] or 614-752-9817.OCJ: What is your favorite part of being involved with the program?Cindy: The best part is working with the farm families. I get to meet some wonderful people, and hear their great stories. These families are like family to me.OCJ: Why is it important to preserve Ohio’s agricultural heritage through this program?                 Cindy: Ohio wouldn’t be a leading agriculture state now without the hard work of our ancestors. We need to make sure that future generations will know what their family went through and the sacrifices they made. Our ancestors might not have left written histories, but the current generation can ensure that their family’s stories are not forgotten.OCJ: What sort of response do you get from the applicants that have successfully gone through the process?Cindy: The families are typically excited about the recognition, and it can be emotional as well. I will never forget about the man whose Century Farm certificate arrived following the recent death of his father. He said he shed a few tears, and told his family that all he wanted for Christmas was to have the certificate framed.OCJ: What are some of the common themes that you see showing up among Ohio’s Century Farms?Cindy: I can feel the pride in their accomplishments and endurance and a strong love for their family and land. And I see both concern and hopefulness that their farm will continue in the family for generations to come.OCJ: There are also some recognized bi-centennial farms. Do they get separate recognition for that? If so, what?Cindy: It’s amazing to think that more than 80 registered Ohio farms have been in the same family for at least 200 years! We wanted to give these families some special attention, so the program was expanded in 2013 to include the Ohio Bicentennial Farm designation. Each year we arrange a visit to local fairs to present new Bicentennial Farm families with a certificate.OCJ: What is the most important thing you want Ohio agriculture to know about the Century farm Program?Cindy: This program is about you — your farm and your family. Registration is a journey of discovery, well-worth your time and effort. If you haven’t registered, do it!last_img read more

first_imgEditor’s note: Kent Earle and his wife, Darcie, write a blog called Blue Heron EcoHaus, documenting their journey “from urbanites to ruralites” and the construction of a superinsulated house on the Canadian prairies. Their previous blog on GBA was called Making an ICF Foundation. The blog below was originally published in June 2015. (A complete list of Kent Earle’s GBA blogs is provided in the “Related articles” sidebar below.) Where will the tank go?If we were going to be buying our water, we would need a tank. We were given two options:1. Put a concrete water tank underground, or2. Put a big water tank in your mechanical room.The in-ground tank is good if you don’t have the space in your house, but due to trenching, the cost of the concrete tank itself and piping required, this option comes in at about $6,000.Option 2 was a lot cheaper. The indoor tank is a heavy-duty poly plastic that costs about $1,000. I like saving money, so the latter seemed to be the better option.I have to admit, though, that I did not have as much time to research this as I would have liked, because we had literally two days to decide. (I talked to our neighbor and a friend who both use the indoor tank and have no complaints, as well as some suppliers, the water delivery companies, and contractor who installs the in-ground tanks).The foundation was done and the floor joists were being installed. (You can’t fit a 2,000-gallon tank through the front door; it must be installed on before the main floor joists are in). Racing against the framersAt 1:00 p.m. on Monday, we finally decided that we were going to install the water tank in the mechanical room. We had gone to view our neighbor’s setup and talked to him about his experience. It all seemed good enough. But meanwhile, the crane had shown up that morning and lowered the giant steel beams into the walls of the foundation.I had watched the crane go to work in awe, like a little kid — “Wo, a crane!” It was pretty awesome to see the crane towering over our trees and lowering the steel beam into the pockets that Taylor and Curtis had left when pouring the concrete a couple days earlier.It was an impressive sight to see. The beams slid in so effortlessly. (See Image #2, below).Within a few hours, the guys were hanging the joists and starting to the lay the floor. You’ll notice that the beams and all of joists are within the envelope of the foundation walls. This was intentional from an energy-efficiency point of view. There is no thermal bridging at all with this system. Oftentimes typical houses are built with the joists sitting on top of the concrete wall or on a ledger of the wall. Both of these are a bit more work then simply using hangers. And the former, requires excessive use of spray foam to seal.The way we did it required a taller basement wall, but there is zero chance of air leakage, thermal bridging, or unusual heat loss with this approach.Anyway, the carpenters were working fast. Crap, Darcie and I realized, we had to decide immediately whether or not we were going to have the water tank in the basement. The carpenters were going to be done the floor system the next day, which meant that the tank needed to go in the basement now.I made some calls and found a manufacturer east of Saskatoon who sold large tanks. We hopped in the truck and made the 45-minute drive. We had debated briefly about what size of tank to get — essentially everyone we talked to told us to purchase the largest tank that would fit in the house. That meant we could get a tank with a capacity of 2,100 U.S. gallons — one that measured 88 inches by 88 inches. If you can’t picture that — well, it’s big.We drove back to the land and within a couple hours were ready to haul the giant beast of a tank into the basement. Green Plumbing SystemsStormwater Management We’d had our well water tested when we first bought the land to make sure it was potable. It was, but it really tasted bad. I was also worried because it had caused serious damage to our hot water element in the shop the year before — completely corroding it. RELATED ARTICLES center_img We had always intended to use our well as our source of drinking water and domestic hot water use. It had simply made sense to us all along. It seemed to be the most sustainable and logical thing to do.The only problem was that our water… well, it sucked.It was very strange to think that our water would be so crappy. We live right on the river. It is our front yard. You’d think the water would be good. Our house is perched about 50 to 60 feet above the river, but our well is, bizarrely, 140 feet deep. (Interestingly, as for our neighbors, one could not find water on his land, another had to go down 250 feet, and a third only 20 feet. It’s so strange how in a two-mile radius everyone can have such different water tables, even with all of us are along the river). Treating the water is expensiveThe only real option for treating the water was a process called whole-house reverse osmosis. This type of system is just one step under complete distillation of water in terms of intensity of water treatment. It is major. It takes a lot of equipment and processing, and is very expensive (in the range of $12,000 to $14,000 for the initial setup, not including the regular cost of filters). It basically demineralizes the water; demineralization is bad for pipes and potentially bad for us. It also wastes a ton of water. When everything was considered, the cost of treatment using a whole-house reverse osmosis system would have been $40,000 or so over 15 years.The alternative was to have water delivered by truck. I had thought this was completely dumb at first — why would you do this if you had a well? But after further consideration, this seemed to be the only logical thing to do. And some simple cowboy math showed that paying for water delivery will be way more affordable than the well option — at an anticipated cost of $150 a month, buying water will cost a total of $27,000 over 15 years.Even if we did not try to be conservative with our water use, this option is much more affordable then the reverse osmosis water treatment option. BLOGS BY KENT EARLE Making an ICF FoundationLet Construction BeginPicking High-Performance WindowsHow Small Can We Go?Choosing a Superinsulated Wall SystemHeating a Superinsulated House in a Cold ClimateIs Passivhaus Right for a Cold Canadian Climate? Without a crane, improvisationOnly problem was the crane was long gone, and there was a huge gorge — 11 feet deep and 6-feet wide — all around the perimeter of the house. The four of us put our heads together. We all agreed that it would have been a lot better to have done this when the crane was here.The options were slim. The only possible way was to jimmy up a rickety makeshift bridge between the foundation and the ground using 2x10s and some leftover joists. We decided to push the tank off of the trailer (there was no way to carry it) and roll it to the side of the gorge. From there we wrapped two large ratchet straps around the top of the tank and lashed them to the back of my tractor.Into the abyss. Once the water tank had been manhandled over the makeshift bridge, it was lowered into the last remaining gap in the floor framing.Now came the dangerous part: Taylor and Curtis pushed the tank onto the shoddily crafted bridge (one false step would mean certain death or at least dismemberment) while I slowly backed up the tractor, thereby keeping tension on the straps and allowing the guys to ease the tank across the “Bridge of No Return.” My wife cringed as she watched the bridge bow under the weight of the tank and guys.Miraculously no one was killed. Not even a little bit.Once we had the tank to the edge (Taylor had also built a small ramp on the inside of the foundation), I could simply back the tractor up and lower it down. That went well.By the end of the day, the guys had the floor framed — pretty impressive. They’d poured the basement on Friday and the floor was framed and sheeted with subflooring by Wednesday. Time for a dance party.We all grabbed a beer to celebrate, and as we were standing there, an eagle flew by carrying a fish. We were all in awe, and Curtis said, “And this is where you guys live?” It was awesome.P.S. One more geek/nerd energy efficiency thing: They wrapped the house in the waterproofing seal, but also wrapped the membrane up to seal the seam between the foundation and the plywood wall sheathing, creating a complete seal around the entire basement. It is possible that a small amount of air leakage could occur through the plywood and the top of the joists and foundation wall. This simple trick tightens the house up even more.last_img read more

first_imgDefinitionOsteonecrosis is bone death caused by poor blood supply. It is most common in the hip and shoulder, but can affect other large joints such as the knee, elbow, wrist and ankle.Alternative NamesAvascular necrosis; Bone infarction; Ischemic bone necrosis; AVN; Aseptic necrosisCausesOsteonecrosis occurs when part of the bone does not get blood and dies. After a while the bone can collapse. Ifosteonecrosis is not treated, the joint deteriorates, leading tosevere arthritis.Osteonecrosis can be caused by disease, or a severe trauma, such as afracture or dislocation, that affects the blood supply to the bone. Osteonecrosis can also occur without trauma or disease. This is called idiopathic — meaning it occurs without any known cause.The following can cause:Using oral or intravenous steroidsExcessive alcohol useSickle cell diseaseRadiation therapyGaucher diseaseDecompression sickness from a lot of deep sea divingDislocation or fractures around a jointClotting disordersSome diseases thatare associated with the development of this condition include:GoutAtherosclerosisDiabetesWhen occurs in the shoulder joint, it is usually due to long-term treatment with steroids or a history of trauma to the shoulder.Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease is a similar condition seen in children and adolescents.SymptomsThere are no symptoms in the early stages. As bone damage worsens, you may have the following symptoms:Pain in the joint that may increase over time and becomes severe if the bone collapsesPain that occurs even at restLimited range of motionGroin pain, if the hip joint is affectedLimping, if the condition occurs in or below the hipsExams and TestsadvertisementYour health care provider will do a complete physical exam to find out if you have any diseases or conditions that may affect your bones. You will be asked about your symptoms and medical history.When did the pain start?Does the pain spread (radiate) anywhere?Is the pain constant, or does it get better at night or at rest?Have you noticed any difference in how much or how far you can move (your mobility)?Do pain relievers help?Are you taking any steroids now, or have you ever taken them?Do you drink alcohol? If so, how much?Do you or your family have any clotting disorders?Be sure to let your health care provider know about any medicines or vitamin supplements you are taking, even over-the-counter medicine.After the exam, your health care provider will order one or more of the following tests:X-rayMRIBone scanCT scanTreatmentIf your health care provider knows thecause for osteonecrosis, part of the treatment will be aimed at the underlying condition. For example, if a blood clotting disorder is the cause, treatment will consist, in part, of clot-dissolving medicine.If the condition is caught early, you will take pain relievers and limit use of the affected area. This may include using crutches if your hip, knee, or ankle is affected. You may need to do range-of-motion exercises. Nonsurgical treatment can often slow the progression of osteonecrosis, but most people will need surgery.Surgical options include:A bone graftA bone graft along with its blood supply (vascularized bone graft)Cutting the bone and changing its alignment to relieve stress on the bone or joint (osteotomy)Total joint replacementRemoving part of the inside of the bone (core decompression) to relieve pressure and allow new blood vessels to formSupport GroupsYou can find more information and support resources at the following organizations:National Osteonecrosis Foundation| www.nonf.orgAvascular Necrosis / OsteonecrosisSupport Group International Association | http://osteonecrosisavnsupport.orgThe Arthritis Foundation| www.arthritis.orgCenter for Osteonecrosis Research and Education (CORE)| http://www.osteonecrosis.orgOutlook (Prognosis)How well you do depends on the following:The cause of the osteonecrosisStage of the disease when it was diagnosedAmount of bone involvedYour age and overall healthThe outcome can vary from complete healing to permanent damage in the affected bone.Possible ComplicationsAdvanced osteonecrosis can lead to osteoarthritis and permanent decreased mobility. Severe cases may require joint replacement.When to Contact a Medical ProfessionalCall your health care provider if you have symptoms.PreventionMany cases of osteonecrosis do not have a known cause, so prevention may not be possible. In some cases, you can reduce your risk by doing the following:Avoid drinking excessive amounts of alcohol.When possible, avoid high doses and long-term use of corticosteroids.Dive safely to avoid decompression sickness.ReferencesChang C, Greenspan A, Gershwin ME.
