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 …

The KUWTK star took to Instagram this week to tell off a commenter who thought otherwise, writing a lengthy response explaining that she and Kourtney Kardashian’s baby daddy were strictly platonic.

Chasing demons: 75 years on, D-Day haunts, drives its vets

Given the painful memories, given their unfamiliarity with the country they liberated, given the difficulty of traveling abroad, why are Americans in their 90s coming back for this week’s anniversary of the June 6, 1944, invasion of Normandy? For many, returning is a duty, a way to honor fallen comrades and fulfill promises they made as young men never to forget each other. Some buried their memories for decades but feel a compulsion to face their demons before going to their graves. Many fear the world is forgetting and want young people to hear their stories one last time. The inevitability of all veterans of the 1939-1945 war being gone soon is acting as a clarion call. From across the …

Rarest Carnivore In South America Photographed For The First Time (And It Was On A Toilet)

Discoveries, just like inspiration, can happen in the most unusual of places. Some credit their time on the toilet for certain strokes of genius. Discoveries on the toilet are perhaps rarer but not impossible. For example, Juan de Roux (likely) took the first ever picture of a living Colombian weasel, just as the little mammal perched on a toilet seat. The picture was taken in 2011, but the discovery only happened last year when de Roux, who is an architect/designer and a professor at the Pontifical Xavierian University in Colombia, uploaded the image to the citizen science project iNaturalist and labeled it as a long-tailed weasel (Mustela frenata). He wasn’t convinced about his identification of the animal and consulted papers on a potential better …

MVP chants broke out during Game 2 of the NBA Finals — for Barack Obama

(CNN)Chants of “MVP” breaking out in an NBA arena are pretty common this time of the year. Former President Barack Obama received a standing ovation and heard the MVP chants from the crowd when he was shown on the arena’s video screen and later introduced during the game. Obama, who was seated next to NBA commissioner Adam Silver, briefly stood up and waved. Obama is a noted basketball fan, and his love for the game was on full display during his two terms in office. His picks for the NCAA’s basketball tournaments became something of a yearly televised ritual. He delighted in meeting championship basketball teams at the White House. That even continued after he left office. In January, Obama …

Use of male mice skews drug research against women, study finds

Male animal bias is unjustified and can lead to drugs that work less well for women The male mind is rational and orderly while the female one is complicated and hormonal. It is a stereotype that has skewed decades of neuroscience research towards using almost exclusively male mice and other laboratory animals, according to a new study. Scientists have typically justified excluding female animals from experiments even when studying conditions that are more likely to affect women on the basis that fluctuating hormones would render the results uninterpretable. However, according to Rebecca Shansky, a neuroscientist at Northeastern University, in Boston, it is entirely unjustified by scientific evidence, which shows that, if anything, the hormones and behaviour of male rodents are …
