Did Dogs Help Us Beat the Neanderthals?

 Dogs developed the ability to follow the gaze of their guardians – meaning that when we look toward something (without pointing or nodding toward it), dogs have learned to recognize that we’re directing their attention toward it. Most other animals don’t follow a human gaze. 
Humans love to look into their dogs’ eyes to “read” their emotions. Dogs apparently feel the same. Maybe—just maybe—this reciprocal communication was instrumental in the survival of our species.

"They created panic, they destroyed the terrace and people scrambled inside, throwing themselves over each other. Everyone left without paying." A waitress told him to call 911, then said, "But wait, it's the police that are doing this," Guimond recounted.
"That's when you realize there's a total breakdown of order."

Professor Flannery says climate change is happening so quickly that mankind may need to pump sulphur into the atmosphere to survive.
