Early Europeans lived alongside giant 3-meter tall birds new research published on Wednesday explains.
The bird species was one of the largest to ever roam the earth weighing in at a staggering kg. Bones of the massive, probably flightless bird were discovered in a cave in Crimea.
Nikita Zelenkov. This formidable weight is nearly double the largest moa, three times the largest living bird, the common ostrich, and nearly as much as an adult polar bear. Slate: How do you envision settling Mars will begin, and what will the early settlements look like? Robert Zubrin: I think it will begin with an exploration, and then the establishment of a permanent Mars base to support exploration. And then, relationships will form.
And people will have children. And you will see the beginning of an actual settlement, a base. The Aurealis Awards are now taking entries:.
Everyone knows the Ninth Circuit marches to the beat of its own drummer — or is that to the pace of its own White Walkers? Northern Trust Corp. Naturally, the Night King from Game of Thrones also makes a showing. Goddammit, now I'm going to have to watch Game of Thrones just to be able to do my research?
The actor with the best working name in Hollywood, Rip Torn, died July 9.
He was Torn died Tuesday at his home in Lakeville, Connecticut with his family by his side, Miramontez said. The actor had a seven-decade career in film, television and theater, with nearly credits to his name. The movie opens up aboard a spaceship carrying Commander Christopher Draper played by Paul Mantee, appearing in his first film major film role , Colonel Dan McReady Adam West, an actor commonly found on television westerns and an adorable monkey named Mona. While fleeing the vehicle in their individual escape pods, Draper is separated from McReady and Mona.
Draper adapts to the conditions on the red planet, while searching for McReady and Mona. Even though he is part of the first crew on Mars, Draper learns quickly what it takes to survive. He finds shelter in a cave. Throughout the film, Draper keeps a careful audio record about all that he experiences, which provides a useful narrative device when things happen off-screen. A little problem with the age difference between the couple, for one thing. I knew this was going to be good, but I definitely did not know just how good it would be.
There is a lot of institutional memory built in here for fancasts which are consistent year after year. With a core of listeners who are frequent participants in the Hugo Award process, it is not surprising to see a number of finalists come back year after year.
A positive takeaway, though, is that the only repeat winner was SF Squeecast in the first two years of the category. Those issues seem to have come to a head though, as their problems are now becoming known outside of the geek community. Swedish film reviewers are giving a cautious welcome to Midsommar, a horror film about a bizarre pagan festival in a remote part of Sweden. The film — which was actually shot in Hungary — has been getting strong reviews since it opened in the US earlier this month.
The film opened in Sweden on Wednesday and the first reviews have been appearing in the Swedish press. So what do the critics there think? When Disney announced that Halle Bailey, a teen actress and one-half of the singing group Chloe x Halle, had landed the role of Ariel in the forthcoming live-action remake of The Little Mermaid, some people on social media went bonkers.
Nor are critics outraged by the kind of message that narrative conveys to young children. The hashtag NotMyAriel quickly began trending on Twitter, and since the announcement last week, scores of fans have pledged to boycott the film.
The strongest earthquake to hit California in two decades left a scar across the desert which can be seen from space, new pictures show. The 7. A skull unearthed in Greece has been dated to , years ago, at a time when Europe was occupied by the Neanderthals. The sensational discovery adds to evidence of an earlier migration of people from Africa that left no trace in the DNA of people alive today. One was very distorted and the other incomplete, however, and it took computed tomography scanning and uranium-series dating to unravel their secrets. The more complete skull appears to be a Neanderthal.
But the other shows clear characteristics, such as a rounded back to the skull, diagnostic of modern humans. Armstrong was somehow able to control it and bring the craft in for a successful emergency landing. In conversations with the attendees on Sunday — an intimacy organizer Chris Castro said is a selling point of BayCon over larger conventions — Wu and moderator Gregg Castro discussed activist burnout and creating spaces for people who want to help but may not be comfortable canvassing or making phone calls.
Also presenting at that panel was Sarah Williams, who grew up in Fremont and now lives in Davis. As a queer woman, Williams said she knew she had to be supportive when her daughter told her she was a transgender girl. Still, she said, she needed guidance on what support her daughter would need. Williams said she also knew she could look up the speakers and reach out to them for advice. Then he asked a moral dilemma question about if it would be more ethical to uplift animals and have them as servants than to genetically alter humans as servants and make them low IQ.
He seemed to be intentionally asking baited or loaded questions…. They made the following announcement on Facebook over the weekend:.
Additionally, Mr. Torgersen has not been a member of the board since and has not been Convention Chairman since As such, we do not condone harassment of any kind. We appreciate your patience and understanding until this investigation is completed. Escape Velocity is a different sort of con than anything else in sci-fi. Yes, it shows Captain Marvel using her powers to harm someone else, but plenty of superheroes before her have done exactly the same, and gone much further than she did. That Captain Marvel is called out for behaviour that male superheroes have got away with for decades is sexist.
Both sides have, as you can predictably guessed, gone up in arms.
Both make some good points, and both make some bad points. Not by any definition of the term. Flat out. Classic anti-hero trait.
The actor warns fans the pups still need constant care after the novelty wears off. For once you get the news before the show is aired.
You feel it in the way Lama speaks to Mornia. Call it a dark fantasy romance. Whatever magic she possessed, she used for revenge. Instead of healing people, she focused on black arts and necromancy. It was almost unfair, yet there it was. Some imported Japanese animations or comics are lucky enough to be imported wholly to the West along with other associated products like models, video games, or toys.
Others were not so lucky and came over to our shores in pieces and over a great length of time, forging fans along with way…. Hugo Award voting just opened at the start of May and continues through the end of July. Of course, that all depends on whether Martin ever finishes them.
Back in , mobile technology the like of which had not been seen before rolled into the remote community of Funhalouro, in Mozambique. It was a mobile roadshow, starting with music to draw a crowd and then switching to a three-minute film on the biggest of the screens.

After the film, the audience was invited to use smaller touchscreen tablets to answer a series of questions about what they had seen. Carl Slaughter, and Andrew Porter for some of these stories. Title credit goes to File contributing editor of the day Kurt Busiek. For a moment I just stared at him, as the man himself flashed me one of his trademark Kodak smiles.
