From the National Geographic article:

More than 1,000 copies of HERV-H litter the human genome. The DNA sequences are unique to humans and great apes, apparently invading primates less than 20 million years ago, said evolutionary geneticist Cedric Feschotte of the University of Utah, who did not take part in this research.

What I would like to know is what did mammals, reptiles, and other organisms do before this.

Now all you need to do is fill out a form attesting that your plan was cancelled and that you "believe that the plan options available in the [ObamaCare] Marketplace in your area are more expensive than your cancelled health insurance policy" or "you consider other available policies unaffordable."

Sheesh!"

One can assume ONE of the following is true about the police department:
1. They are completely ignorant of the laws and the Constitution that they have sworn to uphold
2. They conspired to withhold information from the courts.

Either way, I believe that credit should be given where credit is due.

The number of locations is irrelevant.
At least in the USA, most cars are already very well regulated. The bigger problem lies with trucks.
Also, until fossil fuels are replaced in electricity generation, it's just moonbeam dreams and unicorn wishes. Also, battery production for EVs, hybrids, etc. is not necessarily great for the environment.

Machines certainly can solve problems, store information, correlate, and play games -- but not with pleasure. -- Leo Rosten
