I usually visit a few research sites every day to see what the latest research has come up with. On the sites I visit, there's all kinds of categories that post the latest research studies. This is a thread where MD'ers can post the latest research they've found that they've thought was really interesting and perhaps, why.

____________

As a horse aficionado and owner of a Norwegian Fjord horse - the closest relative to the ancient Przewalski's horse, I found the following link to be really interesting.

Endangered Horse Has Ancient Origins

Research shows that the endangered Przewalski's horse and the domestic horse's divergence was not between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago, as previously assumed. The new findings suggest that the domestic horse and Przewalski's horse shared a common ancestor as far back as 160,000 years ago.

I usually visit science daily, eurekalert and naturalnews. Even if you visit the same site, if you find something in a different category that interests you, feel free to post it.

I'm fascinated by ancient history and archeological finds. Here's the latest research on ancient ruins (no, not me ).

2,000-Year-Old Burial Box Could Reveal Location of the Family of Caiaphas

ScienceDaily (Sep. 10, 2011) — In Jerusalem and Judah, ancient limestone burial boxes containing skeletal remains -- called ossuaries -- are fairly common archaeological finds from the 1st century BCE to the 1st century AD period. Forgers have also added inscriptions or decorations to fraudulently increase their value. So three years ago, when the Israel Antiquities Authority confiscated an ossuary with a rare inscription from antiquities looters, they turned to Prof. Yuval Goren of Tel Aviv University's Department of Archaeology to authenticate the fascinating discovery.

Prof. Goren, who worked in collaboration with Prof. Boaz Zissu from Bar Ilan University, now confirms that both the ossuary and its inscription are authentic. The ossuary's inscription, which is unusually detailed, could reveal the home of the family of the biblical figure and high priest Caiaphas prior to their exodus to Galilee after 70 AD. Caiaphas is infamous for his involvement in the crucifixion of Jesus.
Prof. Goren's finding has been reported in the Israel Exploration Journal.

I learned it while watching a police officer give a drunk man a field sobriety test.

The drunk guy said it just like that too.

Today I learned that the banana peel is edible, though perhaps not very palatable unless cooked.
