Find here websites of any kind on any aspect of the admittedly broad field of Anthropology. Pictured: a replica (from the Museo Nacional de Antropología in Mexico City, Mexico -- one of many replicas to be found in museums worldwide) of the skeleton of Lucy, who, according to an unbylined Reuters article dated February 10, 2009, having been "found in Ethiopia in 1974, is the best-preserved example of Australopithecus afarensis, a species of pre-human."

Who Made Who? The glorification of serial killers in movies and television is an appallingly bad horror show. The popularity of unrepentant and unjustified smirking killers reflects a remarkable lack of understanding regarding exactly what a serial killer is and what this type of person really does. To demonstrate this point, take the case of Richard Munoz Ramirez aka the "The Walk-In Killer" and later known as the Night Stalker. "I am beyond good and evil. I will be avenged . Lucifer dwells in us all." Ramirez said in a Southern California courtroom during his sentencing proceedings in 1988. This one infamous remark demonstrates the depths of the deluded fantasy world that he carefully defined as: 1) totally closed (TC): no signs of the sagittal suture were observed on the ectocranial surface, from bregma to lambda; 2) partially closed (PC): less than 10% of the suture length was open; 3) totally open (TO): the suture line was clearly visible with almost no interruptions along its entire length, from bregma to lambda. Minor closure at the area of the parietal foraminae was ignored; 4) partially open (PO): between 10% and 90% of the suture length was open; and 5) premature suture closure (PMSC). PMSC was distinguished from pathological closure, which occurs very early in life (5 years or earlier), and which is characterized by sutural ridging (i.e., scaphocephally) (Hershkovitz et. al. 1997:395). In the PMSC category all skulls in which the sagittal suture was closed after the age of 5 years but before 18 years, were included (ibid.). Hershkovitz et. al. (1997:398) provide the following conclusions: 1...
