Lithic Technolgies

Lithic tech are stones make up of minute crystals that can only be seen with a microscope know as cryptocrystalline. These and conchoidal fractures make up lithic technology. Conchoidal fractures are described as smooth, curved breaks from the base stone. Stones that have both of these characteristics allow for flakes that are big and sharp enough for a variety of tools to be made.

Concepts and musings of a anthropological kind 1

Kennewick man skeleton and Beringia theory

In 1996, two college students in Kennewick, Washington, stumbled on 9400 year old human bones, eroding out of the banks of the Columbia river. Denmark scientists were able to extract DNA from the skeleton. They found it was more common to “native North Americans”, than any of the other populations worldwide.

Beringia theory purposed people migrated from Siberia to Alaska across land bridge that spawned the currently Bering straight. It is believed they did so tracking large animals and game heards.

Characteristics of a loser neolithic architecture

Someone who does not trust, love, and respect others. Sound ironic? Here are some common and easy to know characteristics:

1) Criticizing and judging others: Reflecting self worth entails that, to love others, you must first love yourself. Is it personals problem? Are you having personal problems? Take responsibility for your actions. Don’t damage others;

2) Negativity: whoever is happy will make others happy. There’s always something positive, don’t hold onto anger;

3) Sense of entitlement(s): lack of appreciation, and acting like you deserve it, are limited and petty. Don’t expect things from people. Be thankful;

4) Anger: If held onto longer than a circumstance requires, anger can be synonymous to brain and memory problems. Avoid being negative. If need be, avoid the situation; and,

5) Not accepting responsibly: there’s almost always challenges to deal with. It’s our responsibility to try and deal with them. Try not to criticize yourself.

Local Squirrels

Most common squirrels around us are Douglas Squirrels, though there are the larger sized and introduced flying squirrels and black/grey ones.

-Douglas squirrels are the smaller red/brown squirrels you see running around Whistler;
-Can start breeding as early as Feb but it is doubtful if it stays so cold here;
-Territory can be as large as 10,000 square meters although this is debatable. We have dropped and marked squirrels in the Cheakamus demonstration forest and they have returned to as far as Nordic within a few days…
-Predators include martens and cats; and
-Litters of around 4 in spring.
