Columbus came to an ill continent


"The health of indigenous people in the Western Hemisphere was on a downward trajectory long before Columbus set foot in the Americas, researchers say." There's also a more clearly written article in the New York Times. (If you don't have an account there, you may use this: User: "ethno", Password: "log123" :o) Via Anthropology News

Anthropology Index Online


A great tool for research in scientific articles is The Anthropological Index of the Royal Anthropological Institute. You can search the database by author, titel, region or subject area and get a result of a mostly long list of articles to find in all kinds of publications. Thanks for this input by mail to Jürgen Plieninger. We are waiting for more hints like this, a weblog is not only for news!

Linux gets in the clash 'China vs. Taiwan'


The old conflict between China and Taiwan about flag and name of both countries is coming to your computer desktop now - or should we better say it's coming not: As Salon reports, a distributor of the alternative Operating System Linux, Red Hat, did remove the flag of Taiwan from the country settings of all their distributions (screenshot). They even commented the removing in the system files:

Mon Aug 5 2002 Than Ngo than@redhat.com 3.0.2-7.2
- add patch file to fix kicker segfault (bug #69688)
- get rid of Taiwanese Flag in KDE (bug #70235)

Hehe. A "bug" was that. Interesting. But people using computers sometimes take it very serious with configuring desktop and settings, even if there is no impact for the working of the computer, so soon there was big protest.
