One more series of bomb blasts in Mumbai-India

(Picture courtesy:
A series of 7 bomb explosions rocked Mumbai this evening around 6:00 PM (local time). All seven explosion took place in a span of 30 minutes across seven locations in western Mumbai. The blast took place during the peak hour, when many working people start going back to their homes.
Till now official claim is that around 145 people have been killed and 250 people are injured. But in reality the actual numbers always outnumber the official figures. Looking at the timing of the blast, location of the blast, I suspect around 250-300 people might have been killed.

National Geographic:Stone Age Elephant Found at Ancient U.K. Hunt Site

James Owen reports in National Geographic News that there is an evidence of human life UK during stone age. Here is an excerpt drawn from National Geographic site :

The 400,000-year-old remains of a massive elephant discovered near
London provide the first evidence that Stone Age humans in Britain hunted
and ate the ancient animals, scientists say.

PICTURE:Workers excavate the tusks of a prehistoric elephant found in 2004 near London, England. Researchers were able to date the site to approximately 400,000 years ago, using the teeth of voles (inset)—small rodents resembling rats—that were found near the elephant's remains.The discovery is the first evidence found in Britain of early humans having hunted and eaten ancient elephants.

The early humans butchered the elephant at the kill site and ate the meat raw, the archaeologists add. The male straight-tusked elephant—a member of the extinct species Palaeoloxodon antiquus—weighed about 9 tons (9.1 metric tons), twice as large as elephants living today.
Workers unearthed the remains in 2004 in the town of Ebbsfleet, about 20 miles (30 kilometers) east of London (see
map of the United Kingdom), during construction of a new railway line to the Channel Tunnel.
The elephant was found on the edge of an ancient lake along with stone tools that archaeologists say were used to cut up its flesh.
The mammal was probably killed by a group of hunter-gatherers armed with wooden spears, the study team adds.
