The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Sites are places of importance to cultural or natural heritage as described in the UNESCO World Heritage Convention, established in 1972.South Africa accepted the convention on 10 July 1997, making its historical sites eligible for inclusion on the list.Restoration work has begun on one of the last "untouched" buildings on Dublin's quays.Dublin Civic Trust says the work at 18 Ormond Quay is the "most challenging and transformative" building project its embarked on since the Trust's foundation in 1992.Criteria i through vi are cultural, while vii through x are natural (the column sorts by year added to the list)This open savanna lies at the confluence of the Limpopo and Shashe rivers.It was the heart of the Mapungubwe Kingdom until the 14th century, when the area was abandoned, leaving untouched remains of palaces and settlements.
The project aims to restore residential use to the upper floors and a traditional shop below.
"The greatest point of deterioration that we found is in that part of the human life span which is beyond the life span of wild chimpanzees," Sherwood told Live Science.
"We think that the effect we see is the result of increased longevity." The findings, published today (July 25) in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, could explain why humans are uniquely vulnerable to Alzheimer's and other age-related brain disease, Sherwood said. humans Chimps and humans are separated by between 6 million and 8 million years of evolution, dating back to the last common ancestor we shared with our ape cousins.
In the wild, Sherwood said, chimps are usually dead by 45.
Likewise, studies of foraging communities suggest that the mid-80s is the typical life span for pre-industrial humans.
