Brand New “Pinocchio” Tree Frog Discovered In New Guinea

An expedition to the island of New Guinea in the Pacific has rewarded intrepid researchers with three brand new species of tree frogs. The new species, all members of the Litoria tree frog family, are incredibly rare, as scientists have only seen each of the species just once. They have been described for the first time in Zootaxa. First up is Litoria pinocchio, which on first impression looks like a typical tree frog. On closer inspection, however, it has a small fleshy “rostral” spike, around 2.5 millimeters, protruding from its nose. Litoria vivissimia, which translates as “cheeky monkey”, has a similar protuberance on its snout. “It’s pretty obvious how we came up with the name Litoria pinocchio – it refers to the distinctive spike …

England trips are being co-opted by the right but football has resisted before | Barney Ronay

Tommy Robinson was up for the fight in Guimares on Thursday night and there are reports of England fans chanting his name in bars but together we can fight this influence Back in the mid-1980s, when English football was a wild, rust-caked, occasionally frightening place, a group of Leeds United supporters noticed that the National Front had gained a small but significant foothold around Elland Road. Football was seen as a fertile seeding ground for far-right politics. On matchdays the NF had begun to sell its magazine, Bulldog, outside the ground. They became a visible presence, gained a little traction, took a share of the day. Eventually there was a reaction. Rob Conlon Sign up to The Recap, our weekly …

Dr John obituary

Pianist, singer and songwriter steeped in the musical forms and voodoo culture of his native New Orleans Wherever musicians gathered, Dr John, who has died aged 77, was revered as songwriter, singer, arranger and pianist. He became closely identified with the rich musical roots of his native New Orleans and as well as his mastery of the Crescent Citys various musical forms (which included blues, jazz, funk, boogie-woogie and rocknroll) he was steeped in its mysterious voodoo culture and folklore. He began to develop a cult following with the release of his first major-label album, Gris-Gris (1968), a startling brew of voodoo funk and strange incantations, epitomised by the eerie eight-minute mantra I Walk on Guilded Splinters.

12 Pics Of Chernobyl Cast Compared To Old Photos Of Their Real-Life Counterparts

Opal-Encrusted Bones Reveal First Ever Dinosaur Herd Discovered In Australia

In the Australian outback, paleontologists have identified a new species of iguanodontian dinosaur. While a new dinosaur is a weekly announcement somewhere in the world, this is the first time bones from a dinosaur herd have been found in Australia. Even more remarkably, all of them have been turned to opal, including the most complete opalized dinosaur skeleton ever found. Australia has yielded a poor return for dinosaur hunters compared to other continents, with just 10 known species, most of which have only been preserved as a few bones. However, a few of what has been found, both from dinosaurs and other Cretaceous species, have turned to opal, giving them an unworldly beauty almost unknown elsewhere. University of New England …
