A platform on the upper floor contains "numerous burnt bones of lamb, associated with sacrifice," write Burdo and Videiko, of the Institute of Archaeology of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. The floors and walls of all five rooms on the upper floor were "decorated by red paint, which created [a] ceremonial atmosphere." [See Photos of the Prehistoric Temple & Animal Remains]

We have been talking for eight months and are making plans to meet. ...

- This Ugly Diet and Weight-Related Complication is Crippling Care and Progress
I've no doubt you've seen it. It complicates the provision of compassionate medical care, sours public discourse, poisons media and editorial discussion, and fuels the food industry's ability to suggest they're partners in health. And it doesn't just affect adults. Cartoons give it to our children, and teachers and homework assignments often reinforce it -- as we go about our business thinking there's nothing wrong.
