Sunday Sand: Blustery St. Bees

Blustery. A wonderful, quintessentially English adjective, for quintessentially English weather. “Blustery conditions will continue along the coast for the next few days.” Weeks? Months? Well, it was November when we ventured to the Lake [...]

URETEK ICR was contacted regarding settlement in two identical 1.5 million bushel grain flat storage buildings.   The overall structure dimensions were 600 ft. long by 135 ft. wide with a Quonset style roof . Below the floor of the [...]

I dinosauri in politica!

Theropoda [2012-12-09 12:36:00]   recommend this post  (257 visits)
Raramente contamino questo blog con vicende di mera contingenza politica e sociale. Non perché io sia disinteressato a questi temi (anzi, tutt'altro!), ma perché Theropoda è un blog di paleontologia, al più interessato alle emanazioni [...]

Where do formatted references come from?

Sauropod Vertebra Picture of the Week [2012-12-12 18:38:20]   recommend this post  (239 visits)
It’s an oddity to me that when publishers try to justify their existence with long lists of the valuable services they provide, they usually skip lightly over one of the few really big ones. For example, Kent Anderson’s exhausting [...]

Have you ever sat at your desk, daydreaming about leaving your 9 to 5 and becoming an artist? (I never have, but then my job happens to be awesome). Jessica Winzelberg took that leap and left investment banking to become … Continue reading [...]

AGU 2012 Days 4-6

Magma Cum Laude [2012-12-12 16:19:21]   recommend this post  (226 visits)
As always, I'm behind on my AGU updates (possibly because I didn't have a chance to breathe until Wednesday!) There's so much to do, and Tuesday was the first day that the exhibits were open, which is always a time sink. Wednesday was really the [...]

UNICORNS REALLY EXIST! — So say North Korean scientists — see Unicorns’ Existence Proven at Time.com. Perhaps it is time for ICR, AiG, and CMI to subcontract the search for mokele-mbembe to the North Koreans. I’m not quite [...]

Continuing on the theme of Moroccan Trilobites, there is another specimen that I received from my friend Jenaro: Cheirurus (Crotalocephalus) gibbus.You can see some of the restoration work on the Cephalon but otherwise this is a nice specimen.From [...]

Erosion makes mountains beautiful

Metageologist [2012-12-09 12:16:13]   recommend this post  (210 visits)
The thing that makes mountains so beautiful and fascinating,is not so much their height as their steepness. Climbers and trekkers flock to the High Himalaya, not to get altitude sickness but for the grandeur of the landscape, the experience of [...]
