But Shanta Driver, an attorney for the protesters, said she believes that the rulings that U.S. District Court Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers delivered in an angry voice at a short hearing today are only a temporary setback because the judge gave the demonstrators one week to amend their suit to address her procedural concerns.

Human faces are so variable because we evolved to look unique

Why are human faces so variable compared to other animals, from lizards and penguins to dogs and monkeys? Scientists analyzed human faces and the genes that code for facial features and found a high variability that could only be explained by selection for variable faces, probably because of the importance of social interactions in human relationships and the need for humans to be recognizable. The amazing variety of human faces - far greater than that of most other animals - is the result of evolutionary pressure to make each of us unique and easily recognizable.
