A 9.5-million-year-old, near-complete skeleton found in Spain belongs to a creature related to the modern orangutan and helps plug a gap in the knowledge of ape development, according to Spanish researchers. The team found part of a skull of Dryopithecus laietanus at the Can Llobateres site near Sabadell in northeast Spain several years ago, and have now found other bones there.

In response to "Most Faux Sugars Sweeten Foods Safely" (Dec. 6): The most recent research from Spain shows that aspartame (NutraSweet) ingestion leads to formaldehyde accumulation in organs and tissue. Formaldehyde has been proved to cause gradual damage to the nervous and immune systems and has been shown to cause irreversible genetic damage. Extremely large numbers of toxicity reactions to aspartame have been reported. Symptoms include seizures, headaches, memory loss, tremors, convulsions, vision loss, nausea, dizziness, confusion, depression, irritability, anxiety attacks, personality changes, heart palpitations, skin diseases, loss of blood sugar control, arthritic symptoms and weight gain.

Researchers have discovered a gene mutation that protects people in Southeast Asia against malaria in much the same fashion that a sickle cell trait protects Africans from the disease. But while the sickle cell protects against the frequently lethal form of the disease caused by the parasite Plasmodium falciparum , the newly discovered gene mutation protects against Plasmodium vivax , which is generally thought to be more benign. Malaria causes an estimated 1 million deaths per year worldwide, and at least half the world's population lives in areas at risk for the disease.

February 22, 1998 | JOANNA RUDGE LONG, Joanna Rudge Long, a former editor of the young people's section of Kirkus Reviews, writes and lectures about children's books. Her essay is a revised and expanded version of an article which first appeared in the Five Owls, a bimonthly magazine devoted to quality in children's books
History is hard to pin down. Propagandists have always known this; it's the reason they can so easily manipulate and exploit history's elusive truths. Reshaping the past to serve various agendas--political, dramatic, aesthetic, pious--is a time-honored strategy. Homer did it; Shakespeare did it; most dramatically in the 20th century, Hollywood has done it. "You don't have to be faithful to the facts," said Milos Forman, director of "The People vs. Larry Flynt."
