The school received reports from a coach, a parent and at least two anonymous letters that Barajas about suspicious behavior with students on all-girls campus. Despite those warnings, Barajas continued to manage the athletic department, where he was later convicted of repeatedly molesting a 15-year-old student.

Dozens of Neolithic skeletons, including those of people who may have been victims of human sacrifice, have been discovered in an almost 3,000-year-old settlement in Britain.

Designing the First Full-Time Human Habitat on the Moon

Designing the First Full-Time Human Habitat on the Moon The first humans landed on the moon in 1969. Fifty years later, humans are figuring out how to live there. Radiation, lack of breathable air, generating energy, and relying on rockets to transport building materials are among the challenges for humans settling on the moon. But it is possible to find solutions to these challenges, according to SOM Design Partner Colin Koop. His firm has released a design for the first full-time human habitat on the lunar surface, in partnership with the European Space Agency (ESA) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

Iron Age skeletons dug up during work on a new water pipeline may have been the victims of ritual human sacrifice , archaeologists believe. Some 26 human skeletons were found in pits at Childrey Warren, near Wantage, Oxfordshire, alongside evidence of dwellings

The human skeleton is the internal framework of the body. It is composed of around 270 bones at birth – this total decreases to around 206 bones by adulthood after some bones get fused together.

A collection of tools from different time periods was also found in the settlement, which was discovered by engineers laying water pipes in Oxfordshire, England.

Archaeologists inspecting the remains believe the people found were from the same community involved in creating the Uffington White Horse, a prehistoric chalk sculpture on a nearby hill.

"These findings open a unique window into the lives and deaths of communities we often know only for their monumental buildings, such as hillforts or the Uffington White Horse," Paolo Guarino, Cotswold Archaeology project officer, said in a statement.

"The results from the analysis of the artefacts, animal bones, the human skeletons and the soil samples will help us add some important information to the history of the communities that occupied these lands so many years ago," he added.

The group has removed the remains from the site for a forensic investigation. They were found during work on a Thames Water project aimed at protecting an Oxfordshire chalk stream.

The findings "provided a glimpse into the beliefs and superstitions of people living in Oxfordshire before the Roman conquest," said Neil Holbrook, chief executive of Cotswold Archaeology. "Evidence elsewhere suggests that burials in pits might have involved human sacrifice."

"The discovery challenges our perceptions about the past, and invites us to try to understand the beliefs of people who lived and died more than 2,000 years ago," he added.
