Ice age mining camp found 'frozen in time' in underwater Mexican cave

At the end of the last ice age, Indigenous miners in what is now the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico risked life and limb - venturing into pitch dark caves illuminated only by fire - to extract a prized mineral, a new study finds. That mineral wasn't gold or diamonds, but red ochre, a valuable crayon-like pigment that prehistoric people used for both ritualistic and everyday activities, including rock paintings, burials and possibly even insect repellent.

No one knows, however, how the Indigenous people of the Yucatan Peninsula used ochre. After Indigenous people mined the caves, between about 12,000 and 10,000 years ago, the caves flooded as the ice age ended and sea levels rose. But the still water in the caves preserved the miners' camps - even the charred remains of their fires - allowing archaeologists to see exactly how the mineral was extracted.

Coronavirus and an increase in bicycle use

It might just be a city thing but since coronavirus I find more people buying and riding bicycles around Brooklyn. I haven't ventured into Manhattan for a long time but friends who live there tell me they find bicycle riding good exercise and a great way to get around the city rather than by subway or bus. Hey guys ... Watch out for motorists. Note to motorists: Drive slower in areas with people ride bikes because they can come out of nowhere.

The rules when riding a bicycle are not unlike those for walking during coronavirus. Wear a mask that allows you to breath properly. Social distance. Ride alone or with other family members you know are coronavirus free. Be courteous. Try to avoid talking on your phone. Wipe down your bike before and after riding. Gloves are not a bad idea.

Bicyclists in New York City - other than children - know not to ride on the sidewalks. Fast moving cyclists sometimes nearly miss mowing down unsuspecting pedestrians. Perhaps they don't know the rules or choose not to follow them which seems to be the name of the game today.

Though I haven't read anything about it - I assume that with all these bicycles people should be careful when parking them outside. New York City has a long history of stolen bicycles, tires, or other parts. Secure locks don't always work. If someone wants to steal a bicycle it's easy to cut the lock and ride off. Remember we live in difficult financial times - many people without income.
