A team of paleontologists has discovered a new species of turtle-like reptile that lived in what is now Germany during the Middle Triassic period, approximately 240 million years ago. According to the team, this extinct creature, named Pappochelys, is a missing link in the evolutionary history of turtles.

“The mystery of how the turtle got its shell has been a long-standing question in evolutionary biology. In the case of Pappochelys, we see that its belly was protected by an array of rod-like bones, some of which are already fused to each other,” said team member Dr Hans-Dieter Sues of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History.

“Such a stage in the evolution of the turtle shell had long been predicted by embryological research on present-day turtles but had never been observed in fossils – until now.”

Anglo Saxon and Viking Ship Burial – The British Museum

I was fortunate (yet again!) to snag a spot at another one of Dr. Sue Brunning’s talks, this time, at the British Museum. The topic: Anglo-Saxon and Viking ship burial. This came straight on the heels of her recent presentation about the renovations and refurbishment of Room 41 at the British Museum which houses the majestic Sutton Hoo collection. At this session, the British Museum invited renown Norwegian archaeologist, Jan Bill from the Kulturhistorisk Museum in Oslo. He spoke at length about various Viking burials and attempted to compare and contrast English and Norwegian funerary methods.

“Dr. Garrison! I need to speak with you!” Sam called out, running down the hospital corridor toward the doctor.

“Detective, what can I do for you?” He asked.

“Um. It’s about Callie.” Sam said, unsure how to go about saying this without getting thrown out or sent to the mental ward.

“My daughter?” He questioned, furrowing his eyebrows. “What about her?”

“You know maybe…maybe we could sit down for a minute?” Sam asked nervously.

Help I made another gemsona :’D

I really liked the idea mothsbymoonlight​ and dyemelikeasunset​ made about compartmentalizing our personalities onto another gem.

(hope it’s cool that I did that too!)

Yet, despite significant strides in their presence and impact, women in U.S. politics are still a small minority. In 2013, they were only 18.3%of the U.S. Congress, and women of color were 4.5% of all members of Congress. In that year, 24% of state legislators were female, women of color were 4.9% of total state legislators, and only five women served as state governors. At the judicial level, women were 22% of all federal judgeships and 26% of all state-level judgeships.
