Archaeological work began this year and managed the recuperation of funeral items, petroglyphs, bases of houses, roads, stone tools, pottery, ceramics and food utensils.


Hydroelectric workers in Costa Rica found 66 human settlements, dating back to some 12,200 years, making it the oldest archeological site in Central America.

According to a radiocarbon analysis, the materials discovered are the oldest in the region, the Costa Rican Institute of Electricity said in a statement.

Archaeological work began this year and managed the recuperation of funeral items, petroglyphs, bases of houses, roads, stone tools, pottery, ceramics and food utensils.

Some objects were linked to hunting activities, collecting food from the forest, artisanal production, and farming practises.

2. OJ Simpson & the Frogman Case

Costa Rica related but pretty far afield otherwise. It seems, up until murdering Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman, OJ Simpson was slated to star in a new show for NBC that had similar themes to some of the work Gary Webb had done around that time period in uncovering the contra-cocaine scandal ..
...Hitz acknowledged that cocaine smugglers played a significant early role in the Nicaraguan contra movement and that the CIA intervened to block an image-threatening 1984 federal investigation into a San Francisco-based drug ring with suspected ties to the contras, the so-called “[font color=darkred]Frogman Case[/font].”...

The seventh episode of The People V. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story focused mainly on the infamous bloody glove moment at the trial, where Christopher Darden directed Simpson to try it on only to have the plan backfire when the glove appeared too tight. It was an important moment in the trial, and therefore an important moment in the series, but it was completely overshadowed — for me, at least — by a brief discussion Marcia Clark had with Christopher Darden’s friends about O.J. Simpson’s starring role in a scrapped 1994 NBC pilot titled [font color=darkred]Frogmen[/font].

Yes, Frogmen was a real thing. It was described at the time as a kind of A-Team-esque series about beach bum former Navy SEALs. If you read that sentence and thought, “Well that sounds like an incredible television show,” there’s a good reason for that: It sounds like an incredible television show. From a 2000 Los Angeles Times article about the pilot:

The premise centers on a team of Navy SEALs who, as described in the pilot, “take on special assignments for the government and private sector.”

Simpson plays their leader, John “Bullfrog” Burke, who goes to [font color=blue]Costa Rica[/font] with four fellow ex-SEALs ...
