Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers have 40 years on the books now — that’s the point of the band’s current tour — so it almost seems unfair to only get 19 songs in a headlining set on the first day of the inaugural Arroyo Seco Weekend in Pasadena on Saturday, June 24.

But that ended up making for two hours of music, and in the end the fans who packed the festival grounds in front of the Oaks Stage — and we really mean packed; more on that in a bit — probably heard most of the hits they came

Coordination is key to getting deals done on time

There are the obvious things that need to be done in a real estate transaction that take coordination between the buyers and sellers when the sellers are still living in the house.

Like when buyers and the home inspector can literally take over the house for three to four hours. Like when the appraiser can make arrangements to collect all the data necessary to generate his or her report. And when the buyers can perform their final walk-through.

There are a few more events that tend to occur toward the end of escrow that can take some coordination to avoid miscalculations, misunderstandings,

Oldest fossils of Homo sapiens found in Morocco, altering history of our species

Fossils discovered in Morocco are the oldest known remains of Homo sapiens, scientists reported on Wednesday, June 7, a finding that rewrites the story of mankind’s origins and suggests that our species evolved in multiple locations across the African continent.

“We did not evolve from a single ‘cradle of mankind’ somewhere in East Africa,” said Philipp Gunz, a paleoanthropologist at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, and a co-author of two new studies on the fossils, published in the journal Nature. “We evolved on the African continent.”

Until now, the oldest known fossils of our species dated
