Time To Think About How Short Human History Is




Here is your daily reminder that humans are just one animal among many that have existed on Earth, and that our species’ history is minute compared to the history of the rest of our planet.
 In a video posted to the Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell YouTube channel called “What Happened Before History? Human Origins,” a dulcet-toned narrator recounts our relatively brief history, starting with our ancestors, the apes, and moving forward into the Internet age millions of years later.

Happy Statehood Day Croatia!


Croatia is celebrating its Statehood day on June 25, 2016, to honour the event which took place on June 25, 1991, when the Croatian parliament adopted the decision to proclaim its independence from Yugoslavia, based on the will of the people shown on a referendum on May 19, 1991. And just in case you were wondering, this holiday is not to be confused with Croatia's Independence Day, which is celebrated on October 8. The independence was proclaimed on 25 June, but because of the Brioni Agreement, a three-month moratorium was placed on the implementation of the decision and the Parliament cut all remaining ties with Yugoslavia in October.

The BBC called the race for the Leave campaign shortly before 4:45 a.m., with 13.1 million votes having been counted in favor of leaving and 12.2 million in favor of remaining. The value of the British pound plummeted as financial markets absorbed the news. continue

Should they stay or should they go?

David Cameron, Jeremy Corbyn and Tim Farron are addressing rallies arguing the UK will be better off and safer with a Remain vote in Thursday's poll. Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage are appealing to their own supporters - with the ex-London mayor urging people to "believe in our country".
More than 46 million people are eligible to vote in the referendum. The UK public are being asked to choose whether the UK should stay in the European Union or leave in the first vote on the UK's links with Europe for more than 40 years.
