Researcher fired lasers from planes and discovered ancient Maya farms

maya farming

Archeologists have been able to learn a lot about the ancient Maya civilization thanks to ruins that have stood the test of time. Studying how ancient peoples in Central America farmed, however, has proven a lot more difficult for obvious reasons. Once it’s allowed to grow freely, farmland quickly returns to what it used to be, making it virtually impossible to suss out where farmers grew crops hundreds of years prior. But now, a new research effort has demonstrated that spotting the effects of ancient farming in a region is possible, and all it takes is a low-flying plane and some nifty lasers.

Nipsey Hussle’s Killer Fired Off More Shots After Rapper Talked Back

More details are emerging about the death of Nipsey Hussle and Eric Holder, the 29-year-old reportedly responsible for fatally shooting the beloved rap star outside his clothing store in Los Angeles last Sunday afternoon.

According to TMZ, Holder became enraged when Nipsey talked back to him after he fired off two shots that hit the L.A. native.

Via TMZ:

Sources at the scene of Nipsey’s murder tell us … after Eric Holder allegedly shot Nipsey twice and the rapper fell to the ground, Nipsey raised his head and said something to the effect of, “You shot me, you got me, I’m good.”

We’re told Holder — who had already started to walk away — turned around and walked back in Nipsey’s direction when he realized the rapper was still alive. That’s when Holder fired additional shots at Nipsey … those bullets, eyewitnesses believe, that killed him.

The surveillance video shows Nipsey raise his head after the first two shots. Holder approaches him and fires again, back off, then fire again. He then kicks Hussle before running into an alley.

The gunman was arrested two days after the incident and has been charged with 1 count of murder, 2 counts of attempted murder and 1 count of possession of a firearm by a felon. He pleaded not guilty Thursday and his
bond has been set at $ 5 million. Famed attorney Chris Darden is representing him.

According to the LA Times, the woman who drove the getaway car turned herself in to authorities and is said to be cooperating with investigators. At the time of this report, she had not been arrested.

Nipsey’s funeral will take place Thursday (April 11) at the Staples Center.

Holder returns to court May 10. He has been placed in solitary out of fear he’ll be killed by other inmates.

Somebody Is Getting Fired: Adorable Photo Of Bey And Jay’s Twins Leaked Online

We’ve finally got a snap of Jay and Bey‘s babies. Yep, we’re talking all three of the cuties. There’s big sis, Blue Ivy literally holdin’ down the twins, Rumi and Sir.

The Instagram pic which is sepia toned for great effect, the setting is a grassy area with 7-year-old Blue Ivy holding the twins. The image is a photo taken of a photo hanging on a wall. The reflection from a nearby light source nearly obscures Blue Ivy’s nose and mouth in the photo. See the photo here.

The twins were born on June 1, 2017. And since we’re discussing the Carter youngins, according to Sandra Rose, “Beyonce fans say the boy; Sir, is the spitting image of his roughneck father, rapper Jay-Z. While the girl, Rumi, slightly resembles Beyonce.”

Alrighty then, we’ll leave it at that.

Meanwhile, speaking of Blue Ivy, it’s “Corny Joke Time!”

Now, if you’ve been under a rock and just don’t know, “Corny joke time” is a regular installment on Tina Knowles-Lawson‘s Instagram. The word is Tina’s famous daughters, Beyonce and Solange, are not impressed and are in fact embarrassed by tey mama’s corn ball jokes. But hey, who cares what THEY think … Tina’s 2 million followers can’t enough of ’em!

In a recent video post, the 65-year-old stylist and philanthropist was joined by a very special guest: her adorable 7-year-old granddaughter, Blue Ivy Carter.

Although Blue Ivy is not actually seen in the video, because she came up with the joke herself, she was nearby and even waved to fans just before delivering her one-liner. And honestly, even though the joke came from an elementary schooler, it’ll make you chuckle … at least a little bit.

“So,” Blue Ivy began. “How many lips does a flower have?”

Lawson responded in the post below: “Well, how many?” This was the moment when—wait for it!—Blue Ivy offered the perfect zinger.

“Two lips,” she said. “Tulips—you get it? There’s a kind of flower that’s called a tulip.”

While giggling, her grandmother conceded, “I got it, I got it.”

Two Years After She Was Fired, Phaedra Parks Open To Returning To RHOA

Phaedra Parks says she is open to returning to “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” two years after her she was booted from the hit Bravo series.

“I never say never because that is very final and you never know what could happen,” she recently told Us Weekly at the Hustle & Soul season 3 premiere event in Miami Beach. “I am very happy. I am living my best life. I did for eight years.”

Phaedra went on to describe her time on the show as an “interesting experience.”

“I wouldn’t trade it and I don’t regret it. But I think life is about evolving,” she explained. “That was almost a decade of my life. My children were born on the show. I went on as a newlywed. Got divorced. Now I have a new boyfriend in my life and I am very happy.”

Parks was booted from show after she told Porsha Williams that Kandi Burruss and husband Todd Tucker allegedelly wanted to drug Porsha and have sex with her.

After the drug/rape allegations — which Kandi denied — Phaedra was fired from RHOA, and while she may be unsure about her return to the reality series, one of her former co-stars has made it clear that she wants her back on the show.

“I would love to have Phaedra back,” NeNe Leakes said on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen” in January. A source told Us that Leakes was really pushing hard for Phaedra “to be back on the show.”

In related news, we previously reported that Parks’ ex-husband, Apollo Nida, is getting out of prison sooner than expected, as a judge recently reduced his prison sentence by a full year.

Nida, 40, has been serving a 96-month prison sentence after pleading guilty to conspiracy to commit mail, wire and bank fraud. But after Judge Charles A. Pannell Jr. cut the sentence down to 84 months, Apollo will now be released in August 2020. According to The Blast, he will be on probation for several years.

Around the time of his 2014 sentencing, Nida expressed his disappointment that Phaedra “didn’t even f—king show up for my sentencing. I’m still salty about that,” he said.

Parks — who shares two young sons with Apollo — filed for divorce in October 2014. The split wasn’t finalized until July 2017.

She is now boo’d up with Chicago radio host Tone Kapone.

Eliza Dushku Says CBS Fired Her After She Confronted Bull Co-Star Over Harassment

Eliza Dushku broke her silence about a $ 9.5 million confidential settlement she reached with CBS, saying the network fired her after she confronted co-star Michael Weatherly over his alleged sexual harassment on the set of the show Bull.

In a Boston Globe op-ed published Wednesday, Dushku detailed the harassment from Weatherly, which included comments about his “rape van,” name-calling, comments on her beauty, boasting about his virility, and a remark about having a threesome. She said CBS wrote her off Bull after she addressed Weatherly’s behavior with him directly.

Dushku’s essay comes after the New York Times reported that CBS settled her harassment claims for $ 9.5 million. While Dushku declined an interview for the Times story in order to honor the terms of her settlement with CBS, she wrote that she chose to speak out this week after seeing that Weatherly and Bull showrunner Glenn Gordon Caron had provided comments “in what amounted to more deflection, denial, and spin,” she wrote.

“The narrative propagated by CBS, actor Michael Weatherly and writer-producer Glenn Gorden Caron is deceptive and in no way fits with how they treated me on the set of the television show Bull and retaliated against me for simply asking to do my job without relentless sexual harassment,” she wrote. “This is not a ‘he-said/she-said’ case. Weatherly’s behavior was captured on CBS’s own videotape recordings.”

Representatives for Weatherly did not immediately comment on Dushku’s piece. In a statement to the Times, Weatherly said Dushku was uncomfortable with his “attempt at humor.”

“When Eliza told me that she wasn’t comfortable with my language and attempt at humor, I was mortified to have offended her and immediately apologized,” he said. “After reflecting on this further, I better understand that what I said was both not funny and not appropriate and I am sorry and regret the pain this caused Eliza.”

Dushku wrote that she dealt with sexual harassment and bullying from Weatherly “day-in and day-out” for 10 to 12 hours each day for weeks until she spoke to him about it. In response to her request that he “help ease the sexualized set comments” Weatherly said: “Eliza, no one respects women more than I do,” according to Dushku’s piece. Following that conversation, Dushku said she was written off the show.

According to Dushku, the bullying continued even through the settlement process.

“The boys’ club remains in full force at CBS,” she wrote. “In the settlement process, CBS used as defense a photo of me in a bathing suit, pulled from my own Instagram, as if this suggested I deserved or was not offended by the sexual harassment I experienced.”

Dushku’s essay comes as CBS faces other sexual harassment scandals. Her settlement deal with the network came to light during an investigation of former CBS CEO Les Moonves over accusations of sexual assault and harassment, including forced oral sex, groping and retaliation. Moonves was terminated for cause and will not receive $ 120 million in severance, the CBS board announced Monday. Former CBS co-anchor Charlie Rose and former 60 Minutes producer Jeff Fager were also fired in recent months over sexual misconduct allegations.

CBS confirmed Dushku’s settlement in a statement. The network said the amount she received reflects what she would have gotten for the balance of her contract as a series regular on Bull.

“The allegations in Ms. Dushku’s claims are an example that, while we remain committed to a culture defined by a safe, inclusive and respectful workplace, our work is far from done,” CBS said in its statement.

Trump Fired James Comey and Shot Himself in the Foot

Getty

At Jeff Sessions’s urging, Trump nominated Rod Rosenstein to be deputy attorney general in early February. He was confirmed in April, just as the president’s relationship with Comey was turning toxic. The FBI director’s standing deteriorated further on May 3, when Comey vigorously defended his handling of the Clinton email investigation in an appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee. While Comey was always seen as somewhat sanctimonious, his refusal to accept the possibility that he had made a grievous mistake infuriated Democrats and vexed his new Justice Department bosses, Sessions and Rosenstein. His failure during the hearing to declare that the bureau was not investigating Trump himself, and his statement that it made him “mildly nauseous” to think that his handling of the email probe had possibly cost Clinton the race, incensed the president.

The fallout was swift. A White House official returned from a meeting with Rosenstein to inform McGahn that the deputy attorney general had been troubled by Comey’s performance and wished to discuss how to address his refusal to acknowledge—let alone correct—his errors in judgment. Trump stewed about Comey all weekend during a trip to his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, and returned to Washington clutching the draft of a letter firing his FBI director—something he had begun composing numerous times only to be talked down by Priebus and others who feared that dismissing Comey would unleash a legal and political maelstrom.

On Monday, May 8, five days after Comey’s testimony, Trump summoned Pence, Priebus, McGahn, Sessions, and Rosenstein to the Oval Office. It was a Comey-bashing session in which nearly everyone—including Rosenstein—participated with enthusiasm. The president declared that he had decided to get rid of the FBI director, and mentioned the letter he’d written. It faulted Comey for his handling of the Clinton email investigation—something Trump had praised in his personal meetings with the FBI chief—and expressed his continued irritation that Comey had failed to tell the public what he had said several times in private, that Trump was not a target of the FBI probe.
