Examining the facial bone structure of the Lady of Cao, whose remains were found in a 2006, scientists in Peru were able to recreate what she would have looked like while still alive. Experts believe the Lady of Cao, who was a prominent figure in the Northern Peru’s Moche culture, likely died as a result of complications from pregnancy, or childbirth, while in her 20s. The replica of her face took scientists 10 months to recreate.

The Lady of Cao was discovered in the ruins of the Huaca Cao Viejo pyramid, buried with a crown and several artifacts made from copper and gold.

Archeologists believe that because she was buried with these artifacts, including weapons like clubs and spears, she was likely a priestess or a political leader, the BBC reported.

The Lady of Cao was also covered in tattoos, adding to the belief she held a high role in society.

The tattoos, which are still visible, were preserved by the dry climate in which the Lady of Cao was buried.

The El Brujo Archaeological Complex says the Lady of Cao’s is “the great discovery that changed the perception of the female role in ancient Peru.”

Salvador del Solar, Peru’s minister of culture said the Lady of Cao’s oval face and high cheekbones would resonate with Peruvians, many of which have similar features. He also said, “we are privileged to announce this strange combination of the future and the past: technology has allowed us to see the face of a political and religious leader from a culture from the past.”

A New Survey From Netflix Claims Latina Moms Have Hilarious Ways Of Making Time For TV

YouTube

Every single time I call my mom on the phone and ask her what she’s doing she always says the same thing: “Estoy limpiando!” And I believe her — until now. Netflix just released new data that proves some moms aren’t busy cleaning or cooking every second. They’re actually taking a lot of “me time” to catch up on a lot of our favorite shows.

According to a recent survey by Netflix*, 72 percent of Latina moms say that in order to be happy and/or more relaxed, they need at least one to three hours a day of “me time.” For many of them, that means watching TV. Hmm… so when do they sneak in time to watch TV?

*It’s a survey about streaming by Netflix, so take it with a grain of salt.

Yes, moms are busy people. We know that, but they still need to be entertained just like the rest of us. In fact, some moms believe that making time for themselves makes them a better parents (at least 15 percent said that). Another 40 percent say that watching their favorite shows, which includes “Grey’s Anatomy,” “The Walking Dead,” and “Friends,” among others, helps them escape all the children’s programming that they normally watch.

Four out of 10 moms say they make time to watch TV while they’re in the bathroom.

This makes so much sense now! No wonder she’s in there forever. No one bothers you while you’re in there. Perfect time to catch up on “Jane The Virgin.”

This is just low… but understandable, especially if you’ve ever faked an illness to skip school.
