Neanderthals could start their own fires, new research proves

Science
July 19 (UPI) -- Neanderthals weren't dependent on lightning strikes and natural wildfires for their flames, new research suggests. The early human relatives were able to start their own fires.

To wit, a less-than-ideal location or failed geographic expansion was a factor in 9 percent of business start-up failures in a recent analysis of 101 shuttered new businesses from research firm CB Insights. Around one-fifth of all start-ups, in fact, don’t survive one year of operation, according to the U.S. Bureau of Statistics, reports WalletHub in its recent “2018’s Best & Worst States to Start A Business” ranking.Here’s a look at the 10 absolute worst U.S. state...
