Which Hunt?

James’ Empty Blog [2015-06-14 11:58:00]   recommend this post  (215 visits)
So the Tim Hunt thing rumbles on and on... the story for anyone who missed it, is that an old entitled and successful Nobellist said some stupid and sexist and unfunny things in a public lecture at a meeting on science journalism. Unsurprisingly, [...]

Douvilina? from the Mahantango formation of Pennsylvania

Views of the Mahantango [2015-06-15 09:01:00]   recommend this post  (211 visits)
Since the fossils preserved in the Mahantango formation are often just molds or casts of the original shell, it can be difficult sometimes to try and ID what you have found. The specimen below is something I really have to think about. The shape [...]

Universal PicturesI had intended to break my (relatively) long silence with a piece on the pitfalls of confusing research infrastructure with big science. But instead, I’ve ended up writing about Jurassic World. Go figure.I’ll put my cards on [...]

[jules' pics] Englefield v Myohoji

James’ Empty Blog [2015-06-14 18:21:00]   recommend this post  (194 visits)
Englefield seems to date from the mid 1500s, and Myohoji goes back to the 1200s. How much of which buildings may be "original" is another question, of course... Anyway... in 2010, I blogged the Deva gate and famous moss steps at [...]

New information on the integumentary ornamentation of Aquilops americanus (that I have on my shoulder)

My 40th birthday present from Vicki. I commissioned the art from Brian Engh. I bow to no one in my love for his original Aquilops head reconstruction: BUT it’s waaay to detailed for a tattoo unless I wanted a full back piece. I sent Brian this [...]

There is much we still do not know about the ancient origins of birds and near-bird animals, dromaeosaurs and troodontids. As we find more specimens of archaeopterygid or scansoriopterygid-like animals, of Anchiornises and what not, the tree becomes [...]

An update on paleoseismology literature

Here are my latest updates on papers and books that deal with paleoseismology, active tectonics, tsunamis and similar topics. There is a good portion of lake/turbidite paleoseismology with some beautiful seismites. We also have some more general [...] | Impressum
