Cold Dinosaurs Resembled Warm Dinosaurs

Posted on by

first_imgCold dinosaurs were just like warm dinosaurs, scientists have found.  Species living in the Antarctic, with up to six months of winter darkness, show no major differences in bone structure than those who lived in temperate climates.  This was a surprise that falsified earlier studies.  Whatever adaptations the high-latitude dinosaurs had did not show up in their bone structure. Holly Woodward, Montana State doctoral candidate, examined bone tissues from Australian dinosaur fossils that were thought to reside within the Antarctic Circle when the creatures lived.  The bones of the dog-sized ornithopods and theropods studied showed annual growth rings, like those of temperate-climate dinosaurs, but no evidence of hibernation.  “If we were trying to find evidence of dinosaurs doing something much different physiologically, we would expect it to be found in dinosaurs from an extreme environment such as the South Pole,” she said. “But based on bone tissues, dinosaurs living within the Antarctic Circle were physiologically similar to dinosaurs living everywhere else” (source: PhysOrg).  The paper by Woodward and colleagues was published in PLoS One.1 Well-known dinosaur researcher Jack Horner commented, “I think the most important finding is that polar dinosaurs don’t seem to be any different than any other dinosaurs in respect to how their bones grew.”  Woodward found a way to credit the unexpected finding to evolution: “This tells us something very interesting; that basically from the very start, early dinosaurs, or even the ancestors of dinosaurs, evolved a physiology that allowed an entire group of animals to successfully exploit a multitude of environmental conditions for millions of years.”  See also the 03/29/2004 entry. Update 08/09/2011: PhysOrg reported the discovery of multiple trackways of polar dinosaurs in Victoria, Australia.  The tracks were found in a flood plain.  According to the article, this indicates it was “period of pronounced global warming, about 105 million years ago.” 1. Woodward, Rich, Chinsamy and Vickers-Rich, “Growth Dynamics of Australia’s Polar Dinosaurs,” PLoS ONE 6(8): e23339. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0023339. Let’s correct that last sentence:  This tells us something very interesting; that basically from the very start, early evolutionists, even the Father of evolutionary theory, came up with a plot line that allowed an entire group of scientists to successfully exploit a multitude of contradictory data for 150 years. The millions of years are fiction.  Wouldn’t dinosaurs living near the South Pole for millions of years develop some spectacular changes?  Wouldn’t they show a gradation in features from temperate to antarctic latitudes?  They didn’t.  Evolution wins anyway.  A neutral observer might think creationists could score a point here, that the pre-Flood climate was more uniform, but no; evolutionists have a wild card: the ability to invoke miracle talk.  From the very start, Woodward tells us, dinosaurs “evolved a physiology that allowed an entire group of animals to successfully exploit a multitude of environmental conditions for millions of years.” Yes, children; dinosaurs evolved their own physiology.  They got together and had an engineering session.  They reasoned together, croaking that if they would just develop certain features of their bones and musculature and other systems, they could wander all over the earth and thrive for millions of years.  And you, too, children, can follow their example.  Just DON’T call it INTELLIGENT DESIGN!  That is forbidden!  Now, go out and evolve yourselves.  Pick your mutations very carefully with your eyes blindfolded and your ears covered up.  If you win the lottery, you can live at the Sahara or Antarctica without changing clothes.  Good luck!(Visited 24 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Whale Fossils: Challenge or Support for Evolution?

Posted on by

first_imgWhen most fossils consist of small shelly creatures, finding a whale is indeed big news.  Two whale fossil discoveries on opposite sides of the world are spectacular and puzzling.  Do they support the theory that whales evolved from land mammals? Aye: Egyptian Whales:  PhysOrg announced triumphantly, “Whale fossils show important characters of the transition to water.”  Easier said than proved.  Limestone plates quarried in Egypt were found to bear fossils of Aegyptocetus tarfa, a putative whale transitional form.  Owen Gingerich [U of Michigan] is usually nearby wherever whale-evolution fossils are found, and this was no exception.  He said this species, alleged to be 40 million years old, “falls right in the middle of what we know about the evolutionary transition of whales from land to sea.”  In what ways?  “The transitional characters present in this species include a retained sense of smell (which is usually lost in aquatic mammal lineages), an enhanced ability to hear (a characteristic of later and modern whales), and the ability to still haul itself out of the water, similar to modern seals.”  The holotype was discovered and named by Gingerich.  Wikipedia says Aegyptocetus is classified under Protocediae, “a diverse and heterogeneous group of cetaceans known from Asia, Europe, Africa, and North America.”  How these diverse fossils relate to one another, let alone to whales, is not clear from the limited write-up on this genus.  The article said nothing about how such a large mammal got buried in fine limestone. Nay: Chilean Whales:  Watch a one-minute video clip on the BBC News about a spectacular assemblage of fossil whales being uncovered in Chile.  Dozens are expected in this fossil graveyard.  The workers exceeded expectations by finding 15 whales in 15 days.  Remains of sharks, dolphins and seals have also been found, with many of the skeletons intact and complete.  Paleontologist Sol Square calls this a “discovery of global importance.  There’s never been a find of this size or this diversity anywhere in the world.”  That boast, though, seems overshadowed by a discovery announced in Geology in 2004 of 346 whale fossils buried in diatomaceous earth (see 2/02/2004).  That discovery was published by creation geologists who believe a global flood was responsible for their burial. Update 11/19/2011:  A report on PhysOrg says it is possible all these whales, in an area covering two football fields, died simultaneously.  The article also states that hundreds more may be found in the area.  The paleontologists seem puzzled trying to explain the mass burial.  “Chilean scientists together with researchers from the Smithsonian Institution are studying how these whales, many of the them the size of buses, wound up in the same corner of the Atacama Desert,” one of the driest spots on Earth.  Hans Thewissen, a spokesperson on ancient whales, thinks they were buried over a long period of time, but offered an alternative scenario that they were stranded in a lagoon whose outlet got cut off.  “Subsequently the lagoon dries up and the whales die,” he said.  Waiting for sediments to accumulate gradually over whales seems highly improbable, though, considering how quickly stranded whales decompose today.  Besides, Nature on Nov. 10 reported that “ancient whales were worm food.”  Sea worms are capable of boring through whale bone, leaving little evidence of dead whales remaining on the ocean floor.  By contrast, “the Chilean fossils stand out for their staggering number and beautifully preserved bones.” Mammal puzzles:  The evolution of whales has to be fitted to the bigger Darwinian picture of the evolution of mammals.  On that subject, Science praised the work of Meredith et al. who produced a new mammal phylogeny (28 October 2011: Vol. 334 no. 6055 pp. 458-459, doi: 10.1126/science.1214544). Kristofer M. Helgen rightly asked, “what group of mammals was the closest relative of primates, or bats, or whales?”  Evolutionists have long puzzled over the bad fit between morphological and genetic data.  Meredith’s magic solution that made everything come together neatly was to use a “relaxed clock approach.”  Helgen described this as something that “allows the tremendous variability in rates of evolution across the mammal tree of life to be taken into account.” Relaxed clock approach.  Right.  The Darwinian rubber band solution comes to the rescue again: use the stretch-and-squish method to force uncooperative data into your storyline (1/18/2006, 12/14/2004). Remember that with evolution, the story comes first, then the data.  Gingerich is an evolution huckster who specializes in whales.  We’d like to have him tell us how hundreds of whales got quickly buried in Peru and Chile.  How many other whale fossil graveyards lie undiscovered between those sites?  And how did his pet transitional form get buried in limestone in Egypt?  Whales don’t just sit on the sea floor waiting for microscopic particles of lime to cover them over millennia.  They are quickly scavenged by other animals all the way to the bone.  Instead of divining for the Spirit of Charlie, Gingerich should be thinking seriously about how these large creatures suffered catastrophic fates in large numbers.  Meanwhile, give him a clock that keeps rigid time.(Visited 141 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

BBC opens pan-Africa office in Joburg

Posted on by

first_img2 September 2013British public broadcaster the BBC is opening a new pan-Africa Business Unit in Johannesburg this month, Peter Horrocks, the director of BBC Global News, announced at the Highway Africa Conference in Grahamstown, South Africa on Sunday.Reporting on the announcement on Monday, the BBC’s media centre said the unit would contribute business news from Africa to a wide range of BBC outlets, including the broadcaster’s World Service radio and BBC World News’ daily World Business Report.The unit will produce a new flagship weekly TV programme, Africa Business Report, with South African presenter Lerato Mbele, which will start transmission on BBC World News TV in October.Horrocks said the opening of the new business unit displayed the BBC’s continuing commitment to Africa.“With a weekly audience of 96-million people around the continent and a network of 150 reporters and producers in 46 countries, the BBC is uniquely positioned to tell the African story,” Horrocks said.“A key part of this story is business. Despite many problems, the continent is thriving. The new African Business Unit means we will step up our coverage of African business, bringing impartial, objective coverage to audiences across Africa and beyond.”The unit will commission business stories from across the continent, including key business hubs in west and east Africa.The BBC said the unit would be led by Adrienne Murray, supported by locally hired producers, and would use correspondents such as Tomi Oladipo in Lagos, Nigeria and and newly appointed business reporter for east Africa Catherine Byaruhanga.Africa Business Report will begin transmission on BBC World News on Friday, 4 October at 1840 GMT.It will be broadcast at the following times: Fridays 1840 GMT; Saturdays 1010 GMT and 2010 GMT; Sundays 0010 GMT. From 8 November, it will be broadcast at: Fridays 1940 GMT; Saturdays 1010 GMT and 1810 GMT; Sundays 0010 GMT.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Why You Shouldn’t Always Be Shooting RAW

Posted on by

first_imgWith raw shooting cameras so readily available, many filmmakers are opting to shoot raw as much as possible. Although there are some huge benefits with regards to raw image capture, there are also some major downsides. Raw isn’t always the best choice.There is no denying that a raw image will almost always look better than the same image captured with a compressed format. Just like shooting raw still photos (as opposed to JPEG) raw video delivers a final image that has maximized dynamic range, detail and overall image quality. If you’re reading this article, chances are you know very well just how beneficial the raw format can be. While I personally love shooting raw and use it for many of my narrative projects, there are many instances where it isn’t the right choice and I decide to shoot straight to ProRes, or to another compressed codec. Throughout this post, I want to touch on some of the reasons why you might NOT want to shoot on raw, since most of us already understand the many benefits of capturing a raw image.Limited Camera ChoiceMany shooters make the mistake of believing that they need to shoot raw in order to achieve the results they are looking for – specifically when it comes to narrative. This unfortunately leads them to limit their camera choice severely by eliminating many other great camera options than may not shoot raw. This can be particularly problematic in a number of scenarios, one of which being low-light shooting situations. For example, you might want to shoot a scene for your film at night using available street light, which in itself is a difficult task. If you don’t have a lot of experience with many raw shooting cameras (let’s use the RED Epic as an example in this case), you might not realize that most of the current raw cameras that are on the market don’t perform well in low light. So if you were to go out and rent an Epic to go and shoot your night scene, you might end up with some really grainy and unusable footage. Yes, it will be raw, but no that doesn’t mean it will look good. Conversely if you were to shoot on a camera like the Canon C300, you would likely be able to get much better results even though the camera itself isn’t nearly as powerful, and is recording to a heavily compressed format.The key takeaway when it comes to camera choice, is that the ability to shoot raw should never be your number one concern unless you are shooting something very specific that absolutely needs the additional flexibility of raw. Having the ability to shoot raw when you need it is great, but if it is going to mean that you are choosing a camera that limits your shooting options in other ways – it’s never going to be the best choice.Massive Data RequirementsAny raw camera is going to require a lot of storage, which can become very costly and cumbersome to deal with. While some cameras (such as REDs) will shoot to a compressed raw format, many others (like the BMCC) shoot uncompressed raw, and either way the file sizes for any given raw clip are going to be very large.When you consider the amount of storage that you need not only to store your dailies, but also to make backups of everything – you’re looking at a pretty big expense and a much more involved post process. You might feel like these particular issues aren’t a big deal for you, and maybe they aren’t…but it’s worth pointing out that a huge amount of television series and feature films that shoot on the Arri Alexa (which can shoot raw or ProRes), opt to shoot ProRes in order to streamline their workflow. Any great DP that I have ever worked with that owns or shoots with an Alexa regularly have no problem shooting to ProRes, even though it’s a compressed format since they know how great that image can look and they are confident enough in their skill set to not have to rely on raw to save them in post.Color Grading Is A MustIf you plan to shoot raw, you need to plan for a pretty involved color grading session. Chances are, even if you are shooting to ProRes or any other compressed format you are going to be color grading to some degree, but when shooting raw the overall workflow becomes more dense.I make a good portion of my living as a colorist and work with raw footage as well as compressed footage nearly every day, and from first hand experience I would say that I normally prefer working with compressed material if it was well shot. This may come as a surprise as obviously raw is a better format for color grading on a technical level (as it holds way more data in each clip), but how much does it matter?Raw can be immensely helpful when dealing with a blown out window, or any number of other situations that were difficult to shoot on the day of. But in many cases you simply don’t need the power that raw offers. When an experienced DP hands off a ProRes project to me, I know that I’ll likely be able to color grade it a lot more easily than when an inexperienced DP hands off a raw project to me. The reason of course being that the experienced DP has lit and exposed their image in a way that calls for a less intensive color grading session, and therefore needs to rely less on the raw image format.ConclusionRaw is a great format, and I appreciate the benefits of shooting with it. Many of my own films have been shot on RED or BMCC in raw. However, there are some major considerations when it comes to shooting raw including the limited camera options you have, the big data requirements, and the need for a more involved color grading process. There is something to be said about shooting with a camera that is simple to use (especially on a small scale shoot) and will allow you to stay light on your feet and not miss critical shots as a result of becoming bogged down with the raw format. You need to approach your choice carefully.last_img read more

Centre derailing NRC, says Gogoi

Posted on by

first_imgFormer Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi on Saturday said the Narendra Modi government was trying to derail the exercise to update the National Register of Citizens (NRC) by disclosing data and attacking NRC State Coordinator Prateek Hajela.Mr. Gogoi, who had been the Chief Minister for three terms, said this was an indication that the BJP was not interested in resolving the foreigners’ issue.“The BJP government has focussed on certain districts to claim that the names of Bangladeshi-origin people have been registered in the NRC. If Hajela, conducting the exercise, is doing this, why is he not being removed or transferred? After all, he is not a constitutional authority but a government servant and is directly answerable to the administration,” Mr. Gogoi said.He reiterated that the NRC would end up as “waste paper” and leave out many genuine citizens belonging to different communities.  “This exercise will only be 50% successful. Many among the Bengali Muslims, tea garden workers, Gorkhas and others will miss out while some foreigners will be included,” he said.The Sarbananda Sonowal government in the State , he said, must ensure the inclusion of all legal citizens in the NRC.last_img read more

Smoky skies bulletin issued for Northeast BC

Posted on by

first_img“The view at the moment is that it’s likely coming from there. It’s likely that this smoke is coming from Eurasia, but at this point, there’s no agreement.”During a wildfire, Environment Canada says that smoke conditions can change quickly over short distances and can vary considerably hour-by-hour.People with pre-existing health conditions, the elderly, infants, children and sensitive individuals are more likely to experience health effects.Individuals may experience symptoms such as increased coughing, throat irritation, headaches or shortness of breath. Children, seniors, and those with cardiovascular or lung disease, such as asthma, are especially at risk.Stay inside if you have breathing difficulties. Find an indoor place that’s cool and ventilated. Using an air conditioner that cools and filters air may help. If you open the windows you may let in more polluted air. If your home isn’t air-conditioned, consider going to a public place (library, shopping mall, recreation centre) that is air-conditioned.Be air aware! Check your local weather forecasts and alerts so you know when to take extra care. For more information on current air quality, see: www.bcairquality.ca.Visit www.airhealth.ca for information on how to reduce your health risk and your personal contribution to pollution levels, as well as for current and forecast AQHI values. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Environment Canada has issued a smoky skies bulletin for all of Northeast B.C. today.Officials with the Ministry of Environment say that at this point, it’s not entirely known where the smoke is coming from.Air quality meteorologist Ralph Adams said that the smoke isn’t coming any local fires in Northeast B.C., but could possibly be coming from fires burning in the Yukon anjd Northwest Territories, and even as far away as Scandinavia and Siberia.last_img read more

Tata Sponge Iron gets board approval for name change, to shift registered office to Bengal

Posted on by

first_imgKolkata: Tata Sponge Iron, a 54.5 per cent subsidiary company of Tata Steel, said on Thursday that its board has approved shifting of the company’s registered office from Odisha to West Bengal and changing its name to “Tata Steel Long Products Limited”. Incidentally, the company has made this move of shifting its registered office along with changing its name after it had completed acquisition of the steel business of Kolkata-based Usha Martin Ltd (UML) earlier this month with pending transfer some of the assets including mines and certain land parcels. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaIn a regulatory filing, Tata Sponge Iron said its board on Thursday “approved the shifting of the registered office of the company to West Bengal, subject to the approval of the members of the company and other regulatory authorities, as may be applicable and consequent amendment in the Registered Office clause of the Memorandum of Association”. The company’s 36th Annual General Meeting (AGM) of its members is scheduled to take place on July 15 at Joda in Odisha’s Keonjhar district. Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highway The company, in the filing, also said its board approved the change in its name to “Tata Steel Long Products Limited” or such other name, as may be approved by the Registrar of Companies, subject to the approval of the members of the company and other regulatory authorities, as may be applicable and consequent amendment in name clause of Memorandum of Association. Notably, Tata Sponge Iron completed the acquisition of the steel business of UML on April 9 with payment of cash consideration of Rs 3468.63 crore (after adjustments for negative working capital and hold backs, pending transfer of some assets including mines and certain land parcels). UML’s steel business includes one-million-tonne steel alloy manufacturing plant near Jamshedpur in Jharkhand, an operative iron ore mine, a coal mine under development and captive power plants. Shifting of Tata Sponge Iron’s registered office from Odisha to West Bengal would be a significant development for the Trinamool Congress-ruled state. After Tata Global Beverages, Tata Metaliks and Tinplate Company of India (TCIL), it would be a new entrant of the list of Tata companies whose registered office would be in Bengal. Tata Steel, in September last year, had executed definitive agreements with the Kolkata-based UML for the acquisition of the latter’s steel business.Tata Sponge Iron’s net profit for the fourth quarter ended March 31 stood at Rs 24.39 crore, down 47.76 per cent year-on-year and its revenue from operations, during the March quarter this fiscal grew 4.34 per cent year-on-year at Rs 254.07 crore.last_img read more

All Brooks Koepka Does Is Win Majors

Posted on by

When Brooks Koepka outdueled Tiger Woods (and Adam Scott) to win the PGA Championship Sunday afternoon, he joined an exclusive group of golfers with three career major championships to their name. In all of golf history, going back even past the days of Tom Morrises both young and old, only 46 players have ever won three majors. Fewer still have won three in the span of 14 months the way Koepka has, having captured the 2017 and 2018 U.S. Opens on top of his win at Bellerive Country Club this weekend. Koepka may still have trouble getting recognized by the general public, but he is getting plenty of recognition in golf’s history books.One weird thing about Koepka, though, is that he hasn’t really done much winning outside of golf’s most prestigious events. Other than that pair of U.S. Opens and this recent PGA Championship win, the only official PGA Tour event Koepka has won was the 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open. You don’t have to win a ton of events to make a good living in golf, of course. Koepka has done plenty well for himself, earning nearly $20 million in official money and ranking among the top 20 in FedEx Cup points for four years running. But it’s still striking how much of his success has been concentrated in major championships.Since the PGA Tour was founded, only two golfers with at least three career major wins — Henry Cotton and Peter Thomson — have had a greater share of their total career PGA Tour wins come in majors than Koepka’s 75 percent mark: 2Peter ThomsonAUS5683.3 10Payne StewartUSA31127.3 10Jordan SpiethUSA31127.3 Koepka is in extremely rare — and international — companyFor men’s golfers with at least 3 major championships since the PGA Tour was founded in 1929, share of total PGA Tour wins that were majors 4Nick FaldoENG6966.7 7Gary PlayerZAF92437.5 RankPlayerCountryMajor WinsPGA Tour WinsMajors as Share of Wins * Cotton’s victories were from an era before the PGA European Tour was founded, but were all at events located in Europe.Source: Wikipedia, PGA Tour 6Pádraig HarringtonIRL3650.0 It’s no coincidence that the leaderboard above is littered with foreign-born players who didn’t regularly play on the PGA Tour. For instance, Thomson, an Aussie, won an impressive 84 professional tournaments in his career, but almost all of them were in Europe, Oceania or Asia. Particularly in the early days of pro golf, great non-American players seldom came over to the States to ply their trade, so this metric is a bit skewed for them. That’s why Koepka stands out as the only American remotely close to the top of our list; the next-highest is Larry Nelson at just 30 percent.One reason for Koepka’s odd ratio: His path to greatness contained detours. It included a stint on the second-tier European Challenge Tour out of college — where Koepka won a lot, enough to gain automatic promotion to the main tour within roughly a calendar year. Once there, he remained a card-carrying member of the European Tour through the end of the 2015 season. Since he didn’t play a full season of PGA Tour events until three years ago, he hasn’t had quite as much time to pile up wins in America as we’d expect just from eyeballing the span of his pro career.Still, Koepka owns one of the oddest — and most enviable — major records of any golfer ever. The way he’s playing, he’ll probably rack up ordinary PGA Tour wins before too long, but for now he has saved almost all of his winning for the tournaments that matter most. 1Henry Cotton*ENG33100.0% 3Brooks KoepkaUSA3475.0 5Seve BallesterosESP5955.6 9Rory McIlroyNIR41428.6 8Larry NelsonUSA31030.0 read more
