If you believe evolution is the natural state of things, you can see where unified communications technologies are going and why. Of course, you can believe UC simply arrived one day on our desks, fully formed with a perfect user experience that made us wonder how we ever got work done before.

Prevailing theories about evolution state that belief in the concept is tied only to a person's politics, religion or both. But according to new research out of the University of Pennsylvania published in BioScience, the journal of the American Institute of biology, whether Americans accept or reject the subject ...

evolution is a funny thing, as there isn't a defined end goal. There's no final design to evolve into. And much like natural evolution, brand evolution over a long enough time period is nothing more than a series of changes, each independently taken without any master plan of where things may end up.
... should refrain from speaking about the societal implications of their vital research is an outmoded and increasingly discredited position. The science of climate change communication is a much-needed addition to the IPCC's canon - and an essential next step in the evolution of this unique organisation.

New fossils found in Israel set our origins back tens of thousands of years--if not more. By John Wenz. Jan 25, 2018. A small bit of human jawbone found in Israel has been dated to between 177,000 and 194,000 years ago. Before this discovery, most evidence suggested Homo sapiens hadn't left the African continent until ...
Though the reasons for this continent-wide colonization remain mysterious, its well-documented and recent nature--knowing who derives from whom and when--presents a rare opportunity to watch the stages of evolution in the wild and observe how past adaptations affect future ones.

... one-toed, these researchers contend that fragments of the "missing" digits can be found in the form of ridges on the backside of the splints. According to the researchers, this demonstrates that the first and fifth digits were not simply lost to evolution, but attached to their neighboring second and fourth digits.
To phrase that more scientifically, evolution has had billions of years of trial and error to produce species that are well adapted chemically and physically. Many human researchers want to imitate that adaptation, turning lessons from the natural world into practice in engineering, technology, and architecture ...

Van Oppen's team has been cross-breeding corals adapted to cooler waters with other species from warmer ...
This time the talk was about 'evolution by Natural Selection'. It was packed. The thing about these talks is that you might imagine they would be as dry as dust, and as dead as the fossils this particular talk was about, but you'd be dead wrong.
