Trevor Noah could possibly be moving on following his split from Minka Kelly, as the “Daily Show” host was spotted with a mystery woman in The Hamptons Friday.
The pair dressed casually for the outing, with Noah, 38, wearing a black t-shirt and grey jeans while his companion donned a green halter dress, bleached denim jacket and wedge heels.

The “Born a Crime” author was snapped hugging the beauty as they exited Il Buco, where the twosome reportedly dined together for two hours.
The sighting comes days after ex Kelly was spotted for the first time since their breakup at the Formula 1 Canadian Grand Prix.

The exes started dating in 2020, and things were going so well that Noah bought a $27.5 million Bel Air mansion for them the following year, featuring six bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and three half-bathrooms, all with views of the Santa Monica Mountains and the Pacific Ocean.
A source told People at the time of the purchase, “They’re making plans for a future together, and it’s a very stable relationship. They’ve been spending time between coasts over the last year and had been looking for a place in LA as a couple.”

The following month, Kelly helped Noah celebrate his 37th birthday.
However, this May the couple reportedly broke up, with neither party publicly addressing the dissolution of their relationship.
“Minka is single now,” a source confirmed to People at the time, adding that she has had “the best attitude” regarding the split.
“She is very happy. She’d rather be single than waste her time with the wrong guy.”

Mystery ingredients in ancient recipes for bronze objects deciphered by researchers
(CNN)An analysis of a 2,300-year-old text and coins has helped researchers decipher ancient recipes for bronze, including two linguistically elusive ingredients.
The Kao Gong Ji, the oldest known technical encyclopedia, was written around 300 BC and is part of a larger text called The Rites of Zhou. The ancient text includes six chemistry formulas for mixing bronze and lists items like swords, bells, axes, knives and mirrors, as well as how to make them. For the past 100 years, researchers have struggled to translate two of the main ingredients, which are listed as "jin"and "xi." Experts believed these words translated to copper and tin, which are key components in the bronze-making process. When researchers tried to re-create the recipes, however, the resulting metal didn't match up with the composition of ancient Chinese artifacts.
Now, two researchers believe they have accurately identified the true meaning behind the mystery ingredients. The journal Antiquity published their findings on Tuesday.
The revelation allows for a better understanding of ancient bronze production -- and opens up new questions about when this process began, given that large-scale bronze production happened long before the six recipes were shared in the Kao Gong Ji, said study coauthor Ruiliang Liu, curator of the Early China Collection at the British Museum in London.Read More
King Tuts tomb had a scepter. This ancient burial had something entirely differentIn modern Chinese, jin means gold. But the ancient meaning of the word could be copper, copper alloy or even just metal, which is why it has been difficult to determine the specific ingredients."These recipes were used in the largest bronze industry in Eurasia during this period," said Liu in a statement. "Attempts to reconstruct these processes have been made for more than a hundred years, but have failed."
Chemical analysis Liu and lead study author Mark Pollard analyzed the chemical composition of Chinese coins minted close to when the Kao Gong Ji was written. Pollard is the Edward Hall Professor of Archaeological Science at Oxford University and director of the Research Laboratory for Archaeology and the History of Art.Previously, researchers had thought the coins were made by diluting copper with tin and lead. The analysis showed that the chemical composition of the coins was a result of mixing two pre-prepared metal alloys, one made of copper, tin and lead, and the other copper and lead.The two researchers concluded jin and xi were likely premixed metal alloys. "For the first time in more than 100 years of scholarship, we have produced a viable explanation of how to interpret the recipes for making bronze objects in early China given in the (Kao Gong Ji)," Pollard said in a statement.

"It indicates an additional step -- the production of pre-prepared alloys -- in the manufacturing process of copper-alloy objects in early China," Liu said. "This represents an additional but previously unknown layer in the web of metal production and supply in China."Archaeologically, this additional step would have remained invisible if not for chemical analysis, the researchers said.
"Understanding the alloying practice is crucial for us to understand the exquisite bronze ritual vessels as well as the underlying mass production in Shang and Zhou societies," Liu said. Using this type of analysis could help researchers decipher other texts about ancient metallurgy from different cultures and regions in the future, the researchers said.
