The arrival of bison in North America marks one of the most successful large-mammal dispersals from Asia within the last million years, yet the timing and nature of this event remain poorly determined. Here, we used a combined paleontological and paleogenomic approach to provide a robust timeline for the entry and subsequent evolution of bison within North(More)
Muak Sa-aak is a tonal Angkuic language spoken in Eastern Shan state of Myanmar, belonging to the Austroasiatic family. It has three contrastive tones: a falling tone, a low tone, and a constricted tone with two allotones.

The Ice Free Corridor has been invoked as a route for Pleistocene human and animal dispersals between eastern Beringia and more southerly areas of North America. Despite the significance of the corridor, there are limited data for when and how this corridor was used. Hypothetical uses of the corridor include: the first expansion of humans from Beringia into(More)
A new methodology utilizing the DID-ESR (dynamic imaging of diffusion by ESR) technique has been developed for its application to polydisperse polymer samples. Due to polydispersity the spin-labeled polymer molecules have a wide range of molecular weight, and this is also true for the matrix polymer molecules. This generally leads to a wide distribution in(More)
