Back in the old days of home computers, say twenty years ago, most of us had one free-standing computer in the house, and the whole family shared it. Those days are now long gone. Many families, perhaps most, now have multiple computers. As computers have become more affordable, portable, and necessary, it’s now common to find multiple computers scattered throughout a home.

Historiskt har man varit tvungen att betala skatt till staten, det mesta gick till kungamaktens underhåll och till olika krigståg.

Hvorfor så neandertalerne ut som de gjorde?

Tidligere trodde forskerne at hodeformen hadde sammenheng med neandertalerens store fortenner.

En teori går ut på at de brukte tennene som gripe-verktøy, en slags «tredje hånd».

Den nye forskningen, som er publisert i tidsskriftet Proceedings of the Royal Society, tilbakeviser denne teorien i tillegg til å vise hvorfor det var nødvendig med stor nese.

Det finnes flere eksempler på store kjendisfamilier, men her er noen kanskje ukjente familierelasjoner.

Her til lands er det kanskje Skavlan-familien som har flest profilerte medlemmer......

Guri Schanke (56) og Elisabeth «Bettan» Andreassen (60) har i mange år vært gode venninner og kolleger i showbiz-verdenen.

Men det som er langt mindre kjent enn deres gode vennskap, er at Bettan er Guris tante.......

Isdalskvinnen er betegnelsen på en uidentifisert kvinne som ble funnet død i Isdalen i Bergen i 1970.

Kvinnen ble funnet i en del av Isdalen kalt Dødsdalen, som ligger i retning opp mot Ulriken. Rundt bålet ble det blant annet funnet et utbrent pass. Obduksjonen viste at kvinnen hadde fått et slag i halsregionen og hadde inntatt flere sovetabletter før døden inntraff.

Politiet sporet kvinnen til to kofferter som ble funnet på NSB jernbanestasjon i Bergen. På alle klesplaggene var merkelappene systematisk fjernet og fingeravtrykkene fant man bare fragmenter av. Det ble også funnet en fuktighetskrem som man måtte ha resept på. Legens navn og dato var imidlertid fjernet. I foret på den ene kofferten ble det funnet ca. 500 tyske mark. Det ble funnet fragmenter av ett fingeravtrykk på et par knuste brilleglass. Avtrykket var imidlertid ikke godt nok til å kunne identifiseres, men analysen styrket politiets teori om at det tilhørte den avdøde kvinnen. Politiet fikk laget en fantomtegning utfra vitnebeskrivelser og analyser gjort av liket, og tegningene ble publisert i mediene og kvinnen ble etterlyst via Interpol i en rekke land.

NRK og BBC lager nå en internasjonal podkastserie om saken.

Kripos har også nylig sendt ut en ny internasjonal etterlysning der de ber om ekstra oppmerksomhet fra de områdene av Europa der hun kan ha vokst opp.

– At hun kan ha brødre, søstre eller foreldre her i Tyskland er veldig interessant. Det kan kanskje hende noen husker henne, sier Kaffanke som laget tv-reportasjen for ARD.

For over a century and a half shame and silence were the most common Irish responses to the calamity of the Great Hunger. A million dead, a million fled was the old saying, but concern over igniting further strife in the present (a particular concern during the Troubles) kept a lid on most discussions of it. But now a new roadshow coming to the USA and Canada plans to give voice to the descendants of famine era Irish immigrants, many for the first time.

An article in the Cowley (Kansas) CourierTimes highlights a frequent question: Who owns a cemetery?

Actually, in many parts of the U.S., most cemeteries have clearly identified owners. Municipal cemeteries are owned by the town or city. The local Catholic cemetery is obviously owned by the Catholic Church and other cemeteries may be owned by other religious organizations, fraternal organizations, while some others are owned by corporations or by non-profit cemetery associations.
