As C.M. Kosemen explains throughout All Yesterdays, we really can’t ever know how much fat and other soft tissues contributed to the overall shape of dinosaurs since that’s the first thing to rot and shrivel tight against their bones and like even a sperm whale has a little skinny skeleton.

Study of leaping toads reveal the mechanisms that protect muscles
Most people are impressed by how a toad jumps. UC Irvine biologist Emanuel Azizi is more impressed by how one lands.
“Toads are ideal for studying jumping and landing because they’re so good at it,” he noted. “This work is providing the basic science on how muscles respond during high-impact behaviors like landing or falling.”
They discovered that during landing, toads’ muscles adapt to the varying intensity of impact. As the creatures hop over longer distances, their landing muscles increasingly shorten in anticipation of larger impacts.
This pattern indicates that rapid and coordinated responses of the nervous system can act to protect muscles from injury, said Azizi, who added that future efforts will be aimed at understanding what sensory information is used to modulate these responses.
Azizi’s findings on the underlying function of muscle control, he said, could one day improve rehabilitation programs for people with neuromuscular deficiencies.

Breaking news — VonDerrit Myers Jr. was killing yesterday (10/08) by an OFF-DUTY officer. he was shot #16times.

Video surveillance shows VonDerrit Myers was unarmed.

  1. Read more about VonDerrit Myers here.
  2. Here,
  3. Here,
  4. Here,
  5. And here.

He was a freaking baby. I’m sorry folks I know who are still in high school, but when it comes to having to deal with things like the police firing weapons at you, you are still tiny people who need to be protected at all costs.

I have faith in you, and the decisions you make, and knowing what you want to do with the rest of your life, but nobody under the age of 18 should ever, ever have to deal with this kind of thing. Much less get hurt by it, much less get murdered by it. All of my protective instincts just kick into high fucking gear when I see stuff like this.

There is no excuse. There is no explanation. This is a murder of a child. I just can’t stand for it anymore.

Director Wes Ball says the Maze Runner film series will be three movies.
In an interview with Digital Spy, Wes Ball shared that his vision for the Maze Runner franchise is to adapt one movie for each book in the trilogy.
In other words, the series won’t follow other YA book to film adaptations and split the final book into two parts.
“I think three is the number; beginning, middle, end, that’s it. Four? I think there’s something off about four. For me, if I have any say in it, there’s three movies basically,” he says.
