Underwater archaeology’s contribution to the peopling of the Americas conundrum

Recent underwater archaeological surveys and excavations have started to reveal more information about how people first arrived in North America.  What routes did these people take? What technology did they have?

More than 1 billion people in the world live with some kind of disability. Yet technological advances driven by market demographics have created an ‘accessibility gap’ that make it difficult for people with physical or developmental impairments to contribute. Harnessing a maker community is a powerful way to address those challenges that have been neglected by the private sector.

A Scientist’s View of Everest

In April 2015, a team of 17 people organized by MRU’s Dr. Trevor Day was set to depart to Nepal to trek to Everest Base Camp (5300m) to try and figure out who gets “acute mountain sickness’ (AMS) and why. Trevor wanted to test a new model of high altitude physiology research – fast and light. Unfortunately, a week before they were to depart, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal, killing over 9000 people across the country, and 19 people at Everest Base Camp. The Everest climbing season was closed, the second consecutive year in a row. The country didn’t need tourists, they needed international aid. Trevor and his team canceled the trip. The resilient people of Nepal have worked tirelessly to recover since the earthquake, in the face of devastation, aftershocks and political conflict. Related to Trevor’s AMS research, hear about Kathmandu and how the Everest Base Camp trek is now safe and open for business.
