Stunning Bounty Of 500-Million-Year-Old Marine Fossils Unearthed In China

A bounty of ancient fossils found on the bank of the Danshui River in China are some of the most pristine, diverse specimens ever found from more than 500 million years ago. The discovery provides a snapshot of a different marine world – one that was highly diverse and where no creature was larger than 15 centimeters (6 inches). The discovery rivals that of Canada’s Burgess Shale fossil site, epitomized by its high diversity of creatures and impeccable preservation, with imprints of eyes, guts, and other soft parts preserved for hundreds of millions of years. The new site, called Qingjiang, includes soft-bodied organisms that rarely withstand the tests of time and make it to the fossil record. Qingjiang “stands out …

The Latest: Schultz says he will attend AIPAC

Howard Schultz will attend the annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee on Monday evening. That from Schultz aide Erin McPike. Schultz’s decision to attend the annual AIPAC conference in Washington comes as Democrats have been grappling with the left’s criticism of Israel and as most presidential candidates are sitting this year’s conference out. Schultz is actively considering an independent presidential bid himself. On Friday, Schultz responded to a tweet from the liberal advocacy group MoveOn, which has been urging Democratic presidential candidates not to attend. He said that the “unwillingness of the far left to even speak with people they may disagree with is one of the worst symbols of the dysfunction in Washington today.” ___ 2:30 …

Sustainable Jet Fuel On A New Flight Path

An efficient technique for turning waste plant material waste into jet fuel has been announced, coincidentally a few days after a paper measured how far we have already come on this journey. Air travel is less than 5 percent of global greenhouse emissions today, but its share is expected to rise like a plane at liftoff. Not only are more people flying more often, but larger sources of emissions are shrinking, or expected to start soon. Shorter flights can shift to high-speed rail, but for intercontinental travel we need a way to make carbon-neutral jet fuel. Existing options, such as last year’s demonstration flight across the Pacific, don’t look likely to scale well, but Professor Ning Li of the Dalian …

After People Claimed That This Smiling Man Photo From 1901 Was Fake, Tumblr User Explained That Rural Chinese People Didnt Know How To Pose

One thing that comes to mind when thinking about early photography is probably the lack of smiles. Today we instinctively put a big grin on our faces when someone with the camera approaches, however it was rather uncommon in the early 1800’s. So it’s probably not that surprising that when a photo of a Chinese man with a big toothy grin, which was taken in the early 1900’s, has surfaced people began doubting its authenticity. The American Museum of Natural History confirmed, that the photo titled “Eating rice, China” and taken between 1901-1904 is authentic The photo was taken during Jacob H. Schiff Chinese expedition when a young German scholar Berthold Laufer was sent to China to investigate the foreign …

Andrew Miller still fighting special counsel subpoena, in limbo after Mueller wraps investigation

(CNN)Andrew Miller, believing he may still be wanted to testify against Roger Stone to a grand jury, will continue to “pursue further judicial review” of his court losses after he challenged the constitutionality of Robert Mueller as special counsel, his attorney said on Friday after Mueller announced his investigation’s end. “Regardless of today’s action, the National Legal Policy Center will continue to support the legal challenge to the subpoena and Mueller’s authority,” added Peter Flaherty, chair of the center. A spokesman from the special counsel’s office declined to comment on Miller on Friday night. Before Stone was indicted, the prosecutors sought information Miller had about Stone, WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, the Democratic National Committee and the online monikers the Russians used …

People are loving this hilarious viral post about a dad bottle-feeding his baby in public.

Despite being the primary method of feeding babies for-literally-ever, breastfeeding in public is still a hot topic of debate. As someone who’s written about parenting for more than a decade, I can attest that few topics prompt a greater outpouring of opinion than breastfeeding in public. The first blog post I ever had go viral was a response to breastfeeding in public criticisms. My most-shared article for Upworthy was about public breastfeeding finally being legally protected in all 50 states. And this video I made for a commenter on that post who said she didn’t want to see women breastfeeding in public has been shared thousands of times across various platforms: Never feel uncomfortable watching a woman breastfeed again! A …

The Barbie Style IG Account Makes Me Hate Everything Betches

To sum it up really quick: Barbie Style reflects the worst that society has to offer. If this is her attempt at acting like a (slightly above) average millennial woman, I feel like the majority of us are pond scum. So, without further ado, let’s mock the sh*t out of a plastic doll which in turn, satirically mirrors the dumpster fire that has become our society. Now that’s f*cking meta. *hits blunt* A post shared by Mar 19, 2019 at 9:01am PDT ? But maybe this is Barbie just trying to be relatable, you know? Everyone has a pic on their Instagram that’s so obviously FaceTuned that you’re not sure what happened to their nose. Also, I’m sorry Barbie girl, …

Cyclone Idai ‘might be southern hemisphere’s worst such disaster’

Millions from Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe affected as houses and roads submerged The devastating cyclone that hit south-eastern Africa may be the worst ever disaster to strike the southern hemisphere, according to the UN. Cyclone Idai has swept through Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe over the past few days, destroying almost everything in its path, causing devastating floods, The most devastating in recent memory were in 2000, but these could be even worse. Houses, roads and telegraph poles are completely submerged. The Mozambican and South African military and other organisations are working to rescue people from the air, though many are struggling to get supplies and teams to the region because roads and bridges have been ripped up or have huge …

Monkey Born From Frozen Prepubescent Testicle Tissue For The First Time

In a world first, sperm from a frozen sample of testicle tissue has been used to create a baby monkey, in a study that could have huge implications for young people undergoing treatment for cancer that could affect their fertility. If replicated in humans, boys undergoing chemotherapy that could affect their ability to produce sperm could have their testicle tissue frozen, preserving it for if and when they want children themselves. Before it can be tested in humans, scientists tested it on monkeys, and a paper published in Science today announced the birth of a healthy baby Rhesus macaque, named Grady. Importantly, Grady was born from the cryopreserved testicular tissue of a prepubescent macaque, which had not started producing sperm …

A New Planet Is Now Our Closest Neighbour

The order of the planets is something most of us learn in school: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and (until 2006) Pluto. So, you would be forgiven for thinking that as Earthlings, our closest planetary neighbor is Venus. And in a way, you would be right – at its nearest, Venus approaches Earth closer than any other planet in the Solar System. Likewise, its orbit is closer to our orbit than any other. However, in another sense, you would be wrong. At least, that is the argument put forward in an article published in Physics Today. To identify our closest neighbor, engineers affiliated with NASA, Los Alamos National Observatory, and the US Army’s Engineer Research Development Center built a …

‘Cancel Brexit’ petition hits 1m signatures

“Should it reach 17.4 million respondents then I am sure there will be a very clear case for taking action,” she told MPs. She added: “It’s absolutely right that people do have the opportunity to put their views and that can then spark yet another Brexit debate.” At one point, the petitions committee said there were nearly 2,000 signatures a minute. In December, the European Court of Justice ruled that the UK can unilaterally revoke Article 50 of the Treaty of the European Union. This means the UK can decide to stay in the EU without the consent of the 27 other member states. Few MPs have mentioned this as a potential option so far. May in Brussels to urge …
