Story has it that many hundreds of years ago, Tanovo, chief of the Fijian island Ono, was very partial to a late afternoon stroll. Each day he would walk along the beach, watch the sun go down and undoubtedly contemplate this paradise on Earth.

But one day Tanovo’s rival, chief of the volcano Nabukelevu, pushed his mountain up and blocked Tanovo’s view of the sunset. Enraged at this, and robbed of the pacifying effects of his daily meditation, Tanovo wove giant coconut-fibre baskets and began to remove earth from the mountain. His rival, however, caught Tanovo and chased him away. Tanovo, in his flight, dropped earth at the islands of Dravuni and Galoa.

When geologist Patrick Nunn first heard this myth, it made sense that it described the volcanic eruption of Nabukelevu, with the associated ash falls on other islands in the Kadavu group. But his scientific investigation of the region concluded that the volcano had not erupted for 50,000 years, long before the island was first inhabited around 2000 B.C. The myth, it seemed, was simply a story—not a description of previous events.

Not your average Android news — a diverse mix of advice, insight, and analysis with veteran Android journalist JR Raphael.

These are the sorts of misguided statements sentient creatures have been making since the earliest days of Google's Chrome OS platform (y'know, way back in the early 1700s, when I first started writing about this stuff). A lot has changed since the Chromebook's debut — both with the software itself and with the way we hominids use technology in general — but the stubborn old inaccurate assessments remain.

Here in the real world of 2017, Google's making it increasingly clear that it takes Chromebooks seriously — and that these systems aren't going anywhere anytime soon. The argument can be made, in fact, that the Chromebook is on its way to becoming a whole new kind of all-purpose productivity machine . On a more macro level, meanwhile, sales are consistently strong , and a fresh focus is being placed on Chrome OS adoption in the enterprise .

Battling the 'homosexual agenda,' the hard-line religious right has made a series of incendiary claims. But they're just not true.

THE FACTS
According to the American Psychological Association, children are not more likely to be molested by LGBT parents or their LGBT friends or acquaintances. Gregory Herek, a professor at the University of California, Davis, who is one of the nation's leading researchers on prejudice against sexual minorities, reviewed a series of studies and found no evidence that gay men molest children at higher rates than heterosexual men.

The Child Molestation Research & Prevention Institute notes that 90% of child molesters target children in their network of family and friends, and the majority are men married to women. Most child molesters, therefore, are not gay people lingering outside schools waiting to snatch children from the playground, as much religious-right rhetoric suggests.
