In this undated photo provided by Sociedad de Ciencias Aranzadi, a flat piece of bronze shaped like a human handis displayed in the Navarra region. Investigators in northern Spain believe they have discovered the oldest written record of a precursor of the Basque language, pushing back its earliest evidence to the first century B.C. The Aranzadi Science Society revealed the inscription found on a flat piece of bronze shaped like a human hand that archaeologists unearthed last year. Investigators believe it is the earliest known evidence of a written Vasconic language, the precursor of modern Basque, a minority language still spoken in parts of northern Spain and southwest France. It challenges the wide-held belief the Vascones started writing in their language after the introduction of the Latin script by Roman invaders.

SAN DIEGO — Diamanda Galás has been hailed around the world for her groundbreaking music and the sonic power and emotional intensity of her singing, not as a scientist or author.
At least three travelers have been killed and 22 others injured in an ambush on buses traveling on a major highway in South Sudan. Gunmen dressed in military fatigues and armed with AK-47s ambushed two buses and a smaller vehicle along the Juba-Nimule highway on Monday. The attack happened between Nyerjebe and Odemo villages some 55 kilometers (35 miles) from the capital, Juba. The highway crosses to neighboring Uganda. It has been a scene of ambushes since 2016. In August, seven people were killed in an ambush along the same highway.

You have questions. I have some answers.
Texas business executives are more optimistic about the nation’s economic outlook than their peers in other states, even though more than a quarter of them have started or are considering layoffs.
A Colombian company is using beetles to transform food waste into fertilizer— and then sends some off to retirement as pets in Japan. The yellow-and-black bugs can grow up to 6.5 inches long as adults. In their larval stage, they chew through garbage in a rural area around the city of Tunja and leave behind fertilizer rich in nitrogen and phosphorous. As adults, some are headed for scientific labs. And a lucky few embark on a future across the Pacific in Japan, where beetles are popular as pets.
Parents, teachers, classmates and community members lit candles, prayed and shared memories during a candlelight vigil for a mother and three children who were fatally shot at their home in Virginia last week. Authorities said JoAnna Cottle called police just before 5 a.m. Friday to report an intruder in her home south of Richmond. When police arrived, they found the bodies of Cottle and her children, 13-year-old Kaelyn Parson, and 4-year-old twins, Kinsey and Jayson Cottle. Police said the investigation led to Cottle’s former boyfriend, Jonah Adams, the father of Kinsey and Jayson Cottle. He was arrested near his home in Waldorf, Maryland, nine hours after the killings. A motive is unclear.

The French Caribbean island of Guadeloupe is fighting what it calls a “large-scale” cyberattack on its computer networks. The government said Monday that it is working with an unidentified specialized firm to limit the consequences of the attack as it tries to restore its systems as soon as possible. An announcement warning of the attack remained posted on the government’s main website on Tuesday. It wasn’t immediately clear if the hackers were demanding a ransom and what government services might have been affected by the attack. A spokeswoman for the government did not immediately respond to a message for comment.

The U.S. Navy says its investigators have concluded that an Iranian drone was used to bomb an oil tanker linked to an Israeli billionaire last week. The drone attack on the Liberian-flagged oil tanker Pacific Zircon last Tuesday off the coast of Oman appears to be part of the long-running shadow war between Israel and its archenemy Iran. The Navy said on Tuesday that its investigation concluded the drone used was an Iranian Shahed-136, the same kind of bomb-carrying drone Iran has supplied to Russia in its war on Ukraine. Iranian drones were used by Yemeni rebels to attack Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates earlier this year.

Padma Lakshmi’s career is filled with highlights, from creating the Hulu series “Taste the Nation” to hosting “Top Chef” to writing a best-selling memoir and numerous cookbooks. But one of her life’s “seminal moments,” she says, was decidedly lower-profile. When Lakshmi visited Shanti Bhavan, a boarding school in her home state of Tamil Nadu in India, in 2012 and found herself surrounded by 250 of its students, it was a moment that still moves her today. The school says it’s grateful for Lakshmi’s personal donations and the corporate donations she seeks for its many impoverished students. Shanti Bhavan is celebrating its 25th anniversary, and Lakshmi said she’s committed to supporting the school and its approach to education.

A federal appeals court is hearing arguments Tuesday on whether to shut down an independent review of the documents seized in an FBI search of former President Donald Trump’s Florida home. The Justice Department has asked the Atlanta-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit to end the review process, saying the appointment of a so-called special master has unnecessarily delayed its investigation into the presence of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago. Lawyers for Trump want the special master’s work to continue. Both sides will argue Tuesday before the appeals court.
DALLAS — Texas business executives are more optimistic about the nation’s economic outlook than their peers in other states, even though more than a quarter of them have started or are considering layoffs.
Around 200 backers of Thailand’s liberalized marijuana regulations have rallied in Bangkok to protest the possible rollback of the drug’s recent decriminalization. Marijuana for medicinal purposes was made legal in June, but the absence of a special law specifying the conditions for its cultivation and sale allowed the growth of a recreational marijuana industry. The demonstrators don’t want rules that would restore tight restrictions on the drug. Sale and use of marijuana was effectively decriminalized when the Health Ministry dropped it from its list of what it deems “narcotic” drugs. The move was a key policy of the health minister, who foresaw huge economic potential in the medical marijuana market. Marijuana shops have sprung up in many Bangkok neighborhoods.
Cartoonists across the nation are celebrating the 100th birthday of “Peanuts” creator Charles M. Schulz as only they can, with cartoons. More than 75 syndicated cartoonists have tucked tributes, Easter eggs and references to “Peanuts” in Saturday’s funny papers to honor the creator of Charlie Brown, Snoopy and company. The list of participating strips ranges from “B.C,” “Dennis the Menace” and “Rhymes With Orange” to “Zippy the Pinhead” and “Zits.” Each artist was encouraged to come up with their own way to honor Schulz, who was known as “Sparky.” It was dreamed up by cartoonist Patrick McDonnell, who creates the daily strip “Mutts.”
The holiday travel rush is already on, and it could spread out over more days than usual this year. Travel experts say the ability of many people to work remotely is letting them take off early for Thanksgiving or return home later. Crowds are expected to rival those of 2019, the last Thanksgiving before the pandemic. Transportation Security Administration screened nearly 2.33 million travelers on Sunday, surpassing the 2.32 million on the Sunday before Thanksgiving in 2019.  AAA predicts that nearly 55 million people in the U.S. will travel at least 50 miles from home this week, an increase over last year and only 2% less than in 2019.
Jurors begin deliberating in trial of Oath Keepers founder, 4 others charged with seditious conspiracy in Jan. 6 attack.
Jurors have started deliberating in the Capitol riot case accusing Oath Keepers founder Stewart Rhodes and four associates of a violent plot to stop the transfer of presidential power from Republican Donald Trump to Democrat Joe Biden. Deliberations began Tuesday. Prosecutors are asking the Washington, D.C., jury to convict the defendants of seditious conspiracy. The rarely used charge carries up to 20 years in prison and can be difficult to prove. Prosecutors spent weeks showing jurors messages, recordings and surveillance video they say show the Texas resident Rhodes and his band of antigovernment extremists were prepared to take up arms to overturn Biden’s victory. The defendants sought to downplay their actions.
German prosecutors have called for a 97-year-old woman who was secretary to the SS commander of the Stutthof concentration camp to be convicted as an accessory to murder and given a two-year suspended sentence. She has been on trial for over a year at the Itzehoe state court in northern Germany. A prosecutor said in closing arguments Tuesday that “these proceedings are of outstanding historical significance.” Prosecutors accuse the ex-secretary of being part of the apparatus that helped the Nazis’ Stutthof camp function during World War II. Tens of thousands of people died at Stutthof and its satellite camps, or on so-called death marches at the end of the war.

A coalition of conservative-leaning states is trying to keep in place a Trump-era public health rule that allows many asylum seekers to be turned away at the southern U.S. border. Late Monday, the 15 states moved to intervene in legal proceedings surrounding the public health rule referred to as Title 42. The rule uses emergency authority to allow the United States to keep migrants from seeking asylum at the border, based on the need to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. It’s set to end on December 21, potentially upending border enforcement. The states argue they’ll suffer “irreparable harm” if Title 42 ends. Immigrant rights’ groups have argued that the use of Title 42 unjustly harms people fleeing persecution.

A construction project in Alabama demonstrates the difficulty of telling complicated U.S. history in 2022. What was once the world’s largest cotton gin factory is being renovated into apartments. Enslaved people were used to build the factory, which played a key role in the expansion of slavery before the Civil War. Some people in Prattville want their story told along with that of its founder, Daniel Pratt. But it’s hard to honor the past without stirring conservative opposition. A historian says relatively few commercial sites linked to slavery recognize that past, so the developers in Prattville have a chance to do something new.
