Ambulocetus natans

The name Ambulocetus means “walking whale,” thus it should not be surprising that this ancient whale
looked very different from modern cetaceans. Ambulocetus had a long and flexible neck, front limbs with
flexible wrists and fingers, powerful legs with large feet, and a long and robust tail that likely lacked tail
flukes.

Locomotion: Based on its skeletal proportions, it has been suggested that Ambulocetus moved through
the water much like an otter. Like otters, the legs and feet would push backward together, the spine
would arch, and the tail would have moved upward. One important difference from otters is that in
Ambulocetus the feet, not the tail, would have provided the main force for swimming. Gingerich (2003)
suggested instead that Ambulocetus used alternate leg paddling to move through the water (i.e.-
the dog paddle), with the tail acting much like a rudder.

Most paleontologists think that Ambulocetus could have walked on land, although it was probably slow
and awkward. Organized bony struts in the leg bones of Ambulocetus and a solid connection between
its pelvis and the base of its spine suggest that it could have supported its body weight on land. That
said, how frequently Ambulocetus traveled on land is unclear. While on land, its elbow and knee were
habitually flexed, and its feet were solidly planted on the ground, unlike modern hoofed mammals,
which stand on their toes. Together, these anatomical features suggest that Ambulocetus frequently
rested with its chest on the ground. Another explanation for the bony struts in the leg bones of
Ambulocetus is that it walked on the bottom of rivers and lakes, much like the modern hippopotamus.
Under this scenario, Ambulocetus rarely, if ever, came out on land. Additional studies on the limb bones
of Ambulocetus are needed to clarify the mode of locomotion in Ambulocetus.

http://www.nyit.edu/medicine/researc...ocetus_natans/

The tall, sharp molars of Ambulocetus suggest that it ate fish and/or other animals that strayed into the water.
The large space for the temporalis muscle, which closes the mouth, indicates that it had a very powerful bite.
Thewissen and colleagues suggest that alligators and crocodiles may be good living analogues to Ambulocetus.
They speculate that in addition to feeding on large fish it may have attacked prey that came to the water’s
edge to feed or drink. Although plausible, this scenario so far lacks direct evidence.

Konga!

"That little chimp will become the first link in modern evolution between plant and animal life," proclaims
soon-to-be-mad scientist Dr. Charles Decker. The botany professor is back from a year in the deepest
jungles of Africa with exotic plants and a cute little chimpanzee named Kongo destined to grow into a
lumbering stuntman (with the eyes of a maniac!) in gorilla costume.

Konga
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=TxFjaug8_j0

King Kong (1933) and Mighty Joe Young (1949) were primitive puppets animated by stop- motion animation. 1933 was so ugly
he was almost cute. 1949 was a charming toy.

This Konga thing gives me the creeps. Looks like a character in a slice and dice film. eeeee

Konga The Mutated Chimp

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=irdO28pI-cE

"The finale was shot on location in the Embankment area of London, where Konga could rage and roar
with Big Ben looming behind him. Cohen's production manager, Jim O'Connolly, warned him that he'd
never get permission from the Metropolitan Police to shoot on the streets, yet Cohen did just that
after meeting the precinct inspector. "The thing that I didn't mention to him was that, at the finale,
all hell was going to break loose – that we were going to shoot sub-machine guns, bazookas, etc.,
etc." In Cohen's own words, "I had a lot of apologies to make" – more than a few citizens were
startled by gunfire breaking out in downtown London in the middle of the night."

The cars, and the suits, and the buildings are old 1950s cool, though.

Although many popular English rockers such as Sir Mick Jagger and Sir Paul McCartney have accepted the honor,
David Bowie refused to become a knight in 2003. He was nonetheless made Commander of the Ordre des Arts
et des Lettres by the French government and took an honorary doctorate from Berklee College of Music, both in 1999

Bowie also refused being named a Commander of the British Empire three years prior to rejecting knighthood.
In a 2003 interview, the singer explained his decisions stating, “I would never have any intention of accepting
anything like that. I seriously don’t know what it’s for. It’s not what I spent my life working for.”

Based on this, it appears that Bowie prefers specific honors which highlight his artistic talent, as opposed to the
more general titles offered by Queen Elizabeth II.

http://www.toptenz.net/top-ten-peopl...knighthood.php

The Queen did not want to give Mick Jagger a knighthood. (Cheeky bugger)
She made the Prince of Wales do the honors.
She had the perfect excuse- Sorry. Busy. We are having cartilage removed from Our Royal Knee.

[Brit] Government forced to release list of rejected honours
26 January 2012

"The Cabinet Office at first refused to reveal the list in response to a BBC freedom of information request.”

"The information covers individuals who declined an honour from 1950 to 1999 and have since died."

Traditional secrecy

The list [also] identifies many more obscure figures who for whatever reason did not want to accept the honours on offer.

The Cabinet Office has been keen to preserve the secrecy which has traditionally surrounded the honours system and
at first refused to reveal the list in response to a BBC freedom of information request. The BBC then complained to
the Information Commissioner who ruled that it was in the public interest to disclose the information for honours
rejected before 2000.

The Commissioner argued that disclosing more recent rejections was more likely to undermine the integrity of
the honours system and that 2000 was a reasonable if arbitrary cut off point.

The data does not cover living individuals since that may constitute personal information protected by the Data Protection Act.
And to avoid doubt it is restricted to people where, according to the Cabinet Office, "it is immediately apparent as a matter
of fact that a relevant individual is dead".

This means that the individuals listed are only a limited proportion of all those who have declined honours. It does nevertheless
show that over the decades there have been many individuals who have not wanted to accept a form of recognition which the
British state wanted to bestow on them. What we don't know, however, are their various motives.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-16721511

We will not see another list, until 30 years, have passed ?

The Buttermilk Creek Complex and the Origins of Clovis at the Debra L. Friedkin Site, Texas

Compelling archaeological evidence of an occupation older than Clovis (~12.8 to 13.1 thousand years ago) in North America is present at only a few sites, and the stone tool assemblages from these sites are small and varied. The Debra L. Friedkin site, Texas, contains an assemblage of 15,528 artifacts that define the Buttermilk Creek Complex, which stratigraphically underlies a Clovis assemblage and dates between ~13.2 and 15.5 thousand years ago. The Buttermilk Creek Complex confirms the emerging view that people occupied the Americas before Clovis and provides a large artifact assemblage to explore Clovis origins..

No genetic evidence = no soup for you Stanford / Bradley, however some people still debate Darwin.

Solutrean hypothesis
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Examples of Clovis and other Paleoindian point forms, markers of archaeological cultures in northeastern North America.
Solutrean tools, 22,000-17,000 BP, Crôt du Charnier, Solutré-Pouilly, Saône-et-Loire, France

The Solutrean hypothesis is an alternative theory about the Settlement of the Americas, according to which peoples from Europe may have been among the earliest settlers of the American continent. The theory that is currently most widely accepted, and which is supported by genetic, linguistic and archaeological evidence, considers the American continent to have been populated from Asia either via the Bering land bridge or by sea.[1][2] The Solutrean hypothesis was first proposed in 1998. Its key proponents include Dennis Stanford, of the Smithsonian Institution, and Bruce Bradley, of the University of Exeter.[3]

According to this hypothesis, people associated with the Solutrean culture migrated from Ice Age Europe to North America, bringing their methods of making stone tools with them and providing the basis for the later Clovis technology found throughout North America. The hypothesis rests upon proposed similarities between European Solutrean and Early American Clovis lithic technology. Many archaeologists have criticized the proposed similarities as too insignificant and just as likely to be due to chance as to shared origins. As one has said, "few if any archaeologists -- or, for that matter, geneticists, linguists, or physical anthropologists -- take seriously the idea of a Solutrean colonization of America."[4]

Though the proponents cite recent archaeological findings in support of the theory, the hypothesis has generally not been well received. A recent DNA study challenges a genetic argument often made in favor of the hypothesis. The study argues against the apparently anomalous mtDNA Haplogroup X2A having migrated to the Americas via an Atlantic route.

Will Smith had a deep distrust and suspicion of the domestic robots, in I, Robot film. (2004)
Along comes a robot, that has a remarkably similar look-

Roli der Roboter bei der Premiere von SCHLUSSMACHER dem neuen Film von Ma

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpI-bqCFWDg

blurb-
Roli berichtet von der Premiere von Matthias Schweighöfers neuem Film SCHLUSSMACHER.
Roli war für Euch den ganzen Abend am Roten Teppich CineStar-Kino auf dem Potsdamerplatz
in Berlin um Interviews mit Euren Lieblingsstars führen zu können.

At a film premiere in Berlin, rather than have a well recognized human media personality do the interviews,
Roli the robot fulfills the role. Roli is very fluid and effective in his human- robot interactions.
Flattery will get you everywhere, even if you are a robot!

What are Lichtenberg figures ?

"Lichtenberg figures" are branching, tree-like or fern-like patterns that are created by high voltage discharges passing along the surface, or inside of, electrical insulating materials (dielectrics). The first Lichtenberg figures were actually 2-dimensional "dust figures" formed as dust in the air settled on the surface of electrically-charged plates of resin in the laboratory of their discoverer, German physicist Georg Christoph Lichtenberg (1742-1799). Professor Lichtenberg made this observation in the late 1700's, demonstrating the phenomenon to his physics students and peers. He reported his findings in his memoir (in Latin): De Nova Methodo Naturam Ac Motum Fluidi Electrici Investigandi (Göttinger Novi Commentarii, Göttingen, 1777). The translated title of Lichtenberg's paper is, "Concerning the New Method Of Investigating the Nature and Movement of Electric Fluid". The physical principles involved in forming Lichtenberg figures eventually evolved to become the modern-day science of plasma physics.

Professor Lichtenberg used high-voltage electrostatic devices to electrically charge the surfaces of various insulating materials such as resin, glass, or ebonite (hard rubber). He then sprinkled a mixture of finely powdered sulfur and minium (red lead/lead tetroxide) onto the surface. He discovered that powdered sulfur (being slightly negatively-charged through friction with its container) was attracted to the positively-charged regions. Frictionally-charged red lead powder was found to be attracted to negatively-charged regions. The colored powders made previously hidden regions of trapped surface charge, and their polarity, clearly visible. Lichtenberg also found that the shapes of positively and negatively charged figures were significantly different. Positive figures tended to be star-like with long, multiply-branched paths, while negative figures tend to be shorter, rounded, and fan or shell-shaped. By carefully pressing a piece of paper onto the dusted surface, Lichtenberg was able to transfer these images onto the paper, demonstrating what eventually became the modern processes of xerography and laser printing.
