"Hidden history" of labor suggests prehistoric women would outmuscle today's elite rowers

New research looking at the bone strength of European women living through the first 6,000 years of farming suggests they had quite the work ethic. So much so, their arms may have been stronger than today’s elite rowers, with scientists claiming their findings point to a “hidden history” of physically demanding manual labor by women…

The Fingersound ring developed by researchers at Georgia Tech features built-in microphones and gyroscopes that allow the wearer to discreetly give commands or input data to connected devices by tracing lines and characters on their fingers with their thumb.

Gotham: "Things That Go Boom" Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below.
Man…I was really hoping Penguin, during his under-the-bridge showdown with Sofia and the ladies, had pulled a full Keyser Söze and blew up Martin. In fact, it would have been even more brutal than the move Keyser, of myth, had pulled because Oswald would have been killing Martin after he’d already rescued him. It would have been a cold kill made just so that the boy could never be used against him again.
The show taking that back actually felt out-of-character/out-of-step for the show. I get that it’s way dark to kill a kid but the show’s done it before. The show’s gone way dark, in fact. This could have been a truly defining moment for the always-guarded Penguin but they rolled it back and it just felt too fluffy. I guess they were counting in us viewers actually caring about the bond Oswald had crafted with Martin. Or Martin in general. It would have been much safer to assume we’d all be pleased with the kid getting blown sky high.

Knightfall: “You’d Know What To Do” Review

This is a spoiler-free review of Knightfall: “You’d Know What To Do.”
History’s Knightfall delivers a fascinating story centered around the Knights Templar and their quest to find the Holy Grail in the early 14th century. Like the network’s flagship series Vikings, Knightfall proves why History needs to develop more original dramas.
Knightfall goes big and bold right from the beginning with a large-scale battle set in the city of Acre. For a TV budget, the assault on the stronghold looks great, but it’s the use of intricately placed cameras that make the sequence shine.
Typically, an actor that wears a helmet, like Thor, finds a reason to take it off, in order to better show the actor’s face. Studios don’t want to pay someone millions of dollars to hide beneath a helmet. Instead of taking the helmets off, Knightfall puts the cameras inside the helmets. It’s a brilliant choice because it creates a feeling of claustrophobia that adds to the intensity of the fights.
