jacinda (1875592) writes "We are currently in the height of flu season (which has been particularly nasty this year) and it may be difficult to get to the doctor when you’re not feeling well (especially for our snowed in friends!). To help ease the pain, Doctor On Demand is waiving the usual $40 fee to chat with a doctor for the rest of the month. Anyone who calls, whether you signed up a month ago or you sign up tomorrow, can use the service for free for the next two weeks. You still need to add a valid credit card for verification purposes when you setup your account. On March 1, calls will go back to $40. There are no setup or subscription fees now or after February is over."

They would have been masters of the club and hand spear. Creating a barrier to other migrating humans, until the humans developed a throwing ability for spears and ? Then they became the hunted and lost out from a early arms race.

An anonymous reader writes "'The drift bottle — containing a postcard which promised a reward of six pence to the finder — was released in June 1914 by Captain CH Brown of the Glasgow School of Navigation.

It was in a batch of 1,890 scientific research bottles which were specially designed to sink to help map the currents of the seas around Scotland when they were returned. Only 315 of them have been found.'"
