Scientists improve dating of early human settlement
Evidence Mounts in Favor of Early Inhabitants of the Americas Over 20, Years Ago During the late glacial and early post-glacial period, evidence suggests that there was no wetlands near the site. Animals present included an extinct form of bison, a large number of ground squirrels, and a large hare different from the common snowshoe hare found in the region today. Although this period was relatively short-lived, these animals indicate a largely treeless environment.

SFU has a meter pool on campus, but all away competitions are in yard pools. Before college, most of the swimmers have no “best times” in short course yards.
FDI research made easy! Published January 5, by Mark Bodnar Does your research require access to data on FDI foreign direct investment inflows, outflows, positions, and stock? Maybe also to FDI regulations, policies, and major players? Then start with our just-updated BUS course guide! Published January 4, by Mark Bodnar Here we are, just four days into the new year, yet, through the magic of publishers forward dating their new titles, your wonderful SFU Library already has over books, ebooks, films, etc.
New names, same great service! The SFU Library is kicking off with a major reorganization! Our overall goal is to realign our people and responsibilities in order to meet emerging researcher needs.

December 11, 2: Description This two-hour seminar will introduce participants to the intersection of archaeological and forensic methods and techniques. Through this course, participants will learn the ways that archaeology can provide standards of best practice for crime scene investigation. Participants will become familiar with both the theory behind forensic archaeology as well as the methods that distinguish it from other forms of archaeology.
Finally, the seminar will discuss the forensic recovery of human remains using archaeological techniques in order to maximize evidence recovery at outdoor crime scenes. Objectives After completing this course, participates will: Understand and be able to articulate the core theoretical concepts that form the foundation of forensic archaeology today; b. Understand how an outdoor scene should be processed using archaeological methods and how human remains should be excavated to ensure optimal evidence recovery; c.
Be familiar with the tools, techniques, and data sources necessary for empirical analysis of environmental evidence; and d.

Overall, fewer teens are reporting experiencing physical abuse from their dating partners, with five per cent of teens reporting dating violence in , down from six per cent in However, the researchers found 5. Elizabeth Saewyc First author Catherine Shaffer, a PhD student from SFU who was involved in the study, says more research is needed to understand why boys are reporting more dating violence. It suggests that healthy relationship programs are making an impact among youth. Researchers analyzed data from three B.
Adolescent Health Surveys involving 35, youth in grade 7 to 12 who were in dating relationships. Catherine Shaffer Elizabeth Saewyc, senior study author and UBC nursing professor, said the findings highlight the need for more support programs for both boys and girls in dating relationships. Health-care providers, parents and caregivers, schools and others can protect teens from dating violence by helping them define what healthy relationships looks like, even before their first date.
Results were published recently in the Journal of Interpersonal Violence.
Canoes of the First Nations of the Pacific Northwest
The 30 foot canoe was commissioned by a private arts organization in San Francisco as part of a six month public demonstration of traditional Haida arts in San Francisco. After the project, Yaalth-Tluu returned to Haida Gwaii, where it is now used for ceremonial occasions and special events. He began carving in This photograph allows us to see the superb attention to detail given to every part of the canoe.
It is a masterwork.

Indigenous Peoples day offers opportunity to explore ancient cave Mysterious and spiritual: Some of the earliest evidence of human activity in North America can be found in northern B. Jun 21, 5: June 22 Formerly known as Charlie Lake Cave, the ancient site of T’se’K’wa has been frequently vandalized by visitors. T’se’K’wa, formerly known as Charlie Lake Cave, holds some of the oldest evidence of human activity in North America, dating back 12, years. On National Indigenous Peoples Day, the First Nations who now own the land around it are inviting the public to come view the site and hear from elders why it is still an important and sacred space.
National Indigenous Peoples Day celebrated with more than events across B. Scientists say the Dane-zaa people were semi-nomadic and likely hunted large ancestors of modern-day bison. In ancient times, T’se’K’wa was an important site for gathering and fishing, but it may have held an important spiritual significance for the Dane-zaa as well. Ravens are often associated with death or travel between the spiritual realms. Much of the original excavation work was done by SFU archeologists in the s and s, when the land was held under private ownership.
In , the First Nations of Doig River, West Moberly and Prophet River purchased the land with the intention of repatriating the sacred site and turning it into an interpretive centre for the public, a goal Oker said they are still working toward. Oker said Indigenous people have always revered T’se’K’wa as sacred and hope that educational efforts will help protect it from graffiti and vandalism, which has been an ongoing problem.

While reports of physical abuse went down over time, they say there is a troubling gender-related trend. Five percent of teens reported physical abuse from their dating partners in , down from 6 percent in But in the last year, 5. Researchers looked at data collected from three British Columbia Adolescent Health Surveys conducted over a year timespan.
New research from SFU and UBC reveals that more teen boys reported being slapped, pushed or physically hurt on purpose from their dating partners than girls. Researchers found that per cent of boys and per cent of girls reported experiencing dating violence in the past year.
The good news is the technology, products, and standards to enable economical multiparty video in WebRTC has matured quite a bit in the past few years. One of the key underlying technologies enabling some of this change is called simulcast. Simulcast has been an occasional sub-topic here at webrtcHacks in the past and it is time we gave it more dedicated attention. Tokbox was one of the first to market with a SFU and Oscar shares some of his learnings below.
Instead of just person-to-person calling, video-telephony and enterprise conferencing, WebRTC is making it possible for any application to add realtime media communications — be it personal real time broadcasting, healthcare, dating, or dozens of others. The heterogeneous mixture of use cases, growing means of network access, and mind boggling diversity of device endpoints, poses a very interesting challenge to quality of experience.
In this new WebRTC-enabled environment, media optimizations and efficient quality control become more important than ever. Enter the SFU One of the most critical features for most multiparty use cases is the ability to adapt the quality of video for each participant that has their own unique network conditions, devices, render sizes, etc. The traditional approach to solve this adaptation problem used to be by means of transcoding within Multipoint Control Units MCUs.
However, that approach is very expensive computationally, and would represent a cost problem to the emergence of many WebRTC uses.
