Macropleura macropleura brachiopod from the Kalkberg formation of New York

If I may paraphrase the song "New York, New York" by Gerard Kenny, Macropleura is a brachiopod so nice, they named it twice! Macropleura macropleura is a large brachiopod and hard to mistake for something else in the Kalkberg formation. I've found [...]

Driving Through the Most Dangerous Plate Boundary in the World: A Compilation of Fear(somely cool geology)

Geotripper [2015-07-05 07:19:00]   recommend this post  (207 visits)
Without a doubt, subduction zones are the most dangerous plate boundaries on the planet. Divergent plate boundaries produce earthquakes and occasional volcanoes, but nothing on the fearsome scale of the calderas and stratovolcanoes and magnitude 9 [...]

Vintage Dinosaur Art: The Lost World (Ladybird)

Love in the Time of Chasmosaurs [2015-07-05 16:45:00]   recommend this post  (203 visits)
Ladybird books are a firm favourite of mine, since (like many other Brits) I have very fond memories of learning to read with them as a child - not just those bought for me at the time, but also hand-me-downs, which were all the more special. Their [...]

A Cladistic and Disparity Analysis of the Jurassic Park Franchise

Theropoda [2015-07-05 16:08:00]   recommend this post  (201 visits)
Dei film di Jurassic Park si è detto molto. Molti di coloro che detestano l'idea che questi film siano un pretesto per parlare di scienza si ripiegano nel mantra acefalo del “è solo un film”. All'estremo opposto, quelli che credono che solo i [...]

Frank Bruni’s Piece in the New York Times is a MUST Read

   I wish I could put words together this well. Frank Bruni’s California,Camelot and Vaccines in the NY Times today is worth the price of a Times  subscription by itself. A snapshot below, but read it

More thoughts on the Joni Mitchell conference

Sauropod Vertebra Picture of the Week [2015-07-05 21:52:27]   recommend this post  (170 visits)
I wanted to get my initial report on the Joni Mitchell conference out quickly. But since posting it, more thoughts have bubbled up through my mind. I’m thinking here mostly about how a humanities conference varies from a science one. Now of [...]
