Ep 7 - The Bering Land Bridge and This Week in History (TWIH)

Week of 2/25/2019 The Bering Land Bridge Did you know that the Bering Land Bridge is a big piece of land? About 620,000 square miles big. That is about three times bigger than Texas. The Bering Land Bridge or Beringia was around for about 130,000 years but it was not until those last 12,000 years that the American Glaciers were melted enough for people to pass through. Over time, Beringia would host a variety of plants, animals, and people. The Ancient Beringian lineage thrived for a short period before being absorbed by other cultures. This culture of people would predate the Clovis culture. Believed to be the oldest prior to Beringia’s discovery. To this day it is a national park for the indigenous peoples of Beringia. Russia and the United States have agreed to treat the area as a joint national park. There is also research being conducted to better understand our past. This Week in History The first Mardi Gras was held this week. It seems that this party just couldn’t be stopped. Time after time they revive the traditions from the French Carnival. With a tradition spanning generations this long running event’s history of resilience may say a lot about this celebration’s staying power. Vaccines were first prescribed this week. Children received the first Polio vaccines. With 15,000 cases per year before vaccinations were introduced, within a decade we saw a huge drop in cases of polio. What effects do we see from countries with different vaccines policies? America wins Gold in Hockey and The Bee Gees win a Grammy for the first and last award for disco recording.
