*excerpt: His ankles secured with heavy, locked iron fetters, the enslaved man appears to have been thrown in a ditch – a final act of indignity in death. Now the discovery of the shackled male skeleton by workers in Rutland – thought to have been aged in his late 20s or early 30s – has been identified as rare and important evidence of slavery in Roman Britain and “an internationally significant find”. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2021/jun/07/shackled-skeleton-identified-rare-evidence-roman-britain

*excerpt: A microscopic worm-like creature, labelled an “evolutionary scandal” by biologists for having thrived for millions of years without having sex, has now been shown to persist for at least 24,000 years in Siberian permafrost and then reproduce, researchers have found. Multicellular invertebrates that are solely female, bdelloid rotifers are already renowned for their resistance to radiation and ability to withstand rather inhospitable environments: drying, starvation and low oxygen. They’ve also existed for at least 35m years – and can be found today in freshwater lakes, ponds, streams and moist terrestrial habitats such as moss, lichen, tree bark and soil. https://www.theguardian.com/science/2021/jun/07/24000-year-old-organisms-found-frozen-in-siberia-can-still-reproduce

Human judicial justice no longer exists. *excerpt: Child rapist and murderer Colin Pitchfork, the first person in the UK to be convicted of a crime using DNA evidence, has been deemed suitable for release from prison by the Parole Board. Pitchfork was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1988 for the rape and murder of two 15-year-old schoolgirls in Leicestershire after his DNA was found to match material left at the crime scenes. The murderer has spent over 30 years behind bars, where his requests for parole were repeatedly denied. However, the Parole Board has now deemed Pitchfork suitable for release, according to reports. https://www.rt.com/uk/525920-child-murderer-parole-board/
