BEIJING Tony Phillips Jersey , Oct. 10 (Xinhua) -- A rare golden colored horse might have galloped across northwestern China's Gobi Desert 2,000 years ago, an archaeological DNA analysis has suggested.

The discovery comes after archaeologists with the Chinese Academy of Social Science (CASS) institute of archaeology analyzed the bones of five horses from a nomad tomb complex dating back to the Western Han Dynasty (202BC--8AD) in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

"The color of the horse's body was golden, or palomino, while its mane and tail were nearly white," said Zhao Xin Terry Steinbach Jersey , lead researcher of the project.

"Though it's not the first archaeological discovery of a golden horse, such genovariation is very, very rare," she said.

The animal was buried in the same vault with its owner and unearthed in a joint excavation by the Xinjiang cultural relics department and Northwestern University from 2006 to 2007.

Archaeologists also discovered a large quantity of other human and animal remains, along with pottery and vessels made of bronze, gold Stephen Piscotty Jersey , silver and stone.

The tomb complex dates back to 400BC--120BC, according to Zhao, and belonged to a nomad community. The five horses were apparently buried as sacrifices for three different people. Three came from the same tomb. Two were chestnut and buried along with a camel in an animal vault. Only the golden one shared the chamber with the owner, said Zhao.

"Obviously, its conspicuous and unique appearance made it precious," she said.

Horses were first domesticated in central Asia at least 5 Santiago Casilla Jersey ,000 years ago.

SEOUL, Aug. 28 (Xinhua) -- Household debts vulnerable to repayment because of low credit and low income rose in the past year, boosting worries about the debt-servicing capability amid the expected interest rate hike, a central bank report said Monday.

The so-called vulnerable household debts reached 79.5 trillion won (71 billion U.S. dollars) as of the end of March, according to the Bank of Korea (BOK) report submitted to the National Assembly.

It was up 6 trillion won compared with 73.5 trillion won tallied at the end of 2015.

The vulnerable debt refers to those extended to households with low credit and low income which borrowed money from at least three financial institutions.

The record-low borrowing costs had encouraged households to spend money and purchase home with borrowed money.

The BOK lowered its benchmark interest rate from 3.25 percent in July 2012 to an all-time low of 1.25 percent in June last year.

The debt-servicing burden for the vulnerable households was forecast to get heavier on expectations that the BOK would raise its policy rate in the foreseeable future.

The U.S. Federal Reserve lifted its benchmark rate to a range of 1.00-1.125 percent, nearing the BOK's policy rate.

The so-called dangerous household debts Rollie Fingers Jersey , which have the ratio of debt repayment to disposable income at more than 40 percent, came in at 62 trillion won as of the end of 2016, up 15.6 trillion won from a year earlier.

The ratio of household debts to the country's gross domestic product (GDP) came to 91 percent as of the end of 2015. It was 18.6 percentage points higher than the average ratio recorded by member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).

SAN FRANCISCO Rickey Henderson Jersey , Aug. 18 (Xinhua) -- Tobacco companies have known for decades that without counseling "nicotine replacement therapy" or NTR, used by consumers to complement smoking, hardly helps smokers quit, according to a study out of the United States. What's more, American cigarette makers embraced NTR as a business opportunity.

Combined with counseling, nicotine patches Reggie Jackson Jersey , gum, lozenges, inhalers or nasal sprays - together known as NRT - came into play in 1984 as prescription medicine. In 1996, at the urging of pharmaceutical companies, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allowed those products to be sold over-the-counter.

The tobacco industry once viewed nicotine patches and gum as a threat to their cigarette sales.

However, with formerly secret internal documents known as the "Tobacco Papers Matt Joyce Jersey ," dated between 1960 and 2010 from the seven major tobacco companies operating in the United States, researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, revealed that cigarette makers had started investing in alternative forms of nicotine delivery as early as the 1950s, but stopped short because people largely regarded nicotine as harmful, and such products might have attracted the attention of FDA regulators.

Published this week in the American Journal of Public Health (AJPH) Mark McGwire Jersey , the study titled "Tobacco Industry Research on Nicotine Replacement Therapy: 'If Anyone Is Going to Take Away Our Business It Should Be Us'" found that in 1987, three years after FDA first approved nicotine gum as a quitting aid, the tide had turned on the public perception of nicotine; and that by 1992, the tobacco industry had determined that patches and gum by themselves do not help smokers quit.

For more than a decade, the companies did not act on this knowledge out of fear of FDA regulation. But once the federal agency started regulating cigarettes in 2009, they went all out in their bid to develop and sell NRT. The Tobacco Papers reveal that companies conjectured that their new nicotine products could successfully compete with pharmace.
