Astrobiologists took a novel view and used evolutionary processes as their guide.
Artists, science fiction writers, and others have offered varying speculations about what life might be like on other planets. In the earliest days this focus was on Martians and “men on the moon.” The grays are the iteration we’re most familiar with, you know the stereotypical gray-skinned alien with the elongated head and black, soulless eyes. Ridley Scott, George Lucas, Stephen Spielberg, and so many others have offered their own, unique visions.
“No government is prepared,” The Economist reports.
The Trump campaign ran on bringing jobs back to American shores, although mechanization has been the biggest reason for manufacturing jobs' disappearance. Similar losses have led to populist movements in several other countries. But instead of a pro-job growth future, economists across the board predict further losses as AI, robotics, and other technologies continue to be ushered in. What is up for debate is how quickly this is likely to occur.
Many women are unable to have children due to age restrictions on IVF. Dr. Dominic Wilkinson, Director of Medical Ethics at the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics, challenges the 4 most flawed arguments.
A 62-year-old Spanish woman recently gave birth to her third child by way of in vitro fertilization (IVF) despite the refusal of help and support from a series of gynecologists who all told her that a safe and successful pregnancy would be nearly impossible for her. Now, she and her baby are both healthy. And she’s not the oldest woman to defy such expectations: a 72-year-old Indian woman also gave birth to a healthy child earlier this year after IVF. In both cases, the pregnancies were without major complications.

The fingers in particular can give you further insights. A collaborative study conducted by Oxford and Northumbria researchers in the UK, found that differences in the lengths of certain fingers indicated whether a person tended to be more promiscuous or monogamous by nature. The secret lies with the ring finger in comparison to the index.
