Dinosaur tracks have been found in Yemen – a region with few fossils of dinosaurs. The reports on National Geographic News, Science Daily and the BBC News said the tracks had been covered up with rubble and debris. Dinosaur evidence is “exceptionally rare” in this part of the world. The paleontologists believe that 11 sauropods were walking in the same direction. The reports claim the rocks are 120 million years old. It was surprising, however, to find ornithopods this large in late Jurassic strata; “it tells us right now that big ornithopod dinosaurs maybe appeared a little bit earlier than was assumed so far,” said one of the researchers. It was also unexpected to find ornithopods and sauropods walking together, since, according to conventional wisdom, the two types of herbivorous dinosaurs “do not commonly co-occur or co-exist together.”Dinosaur tracks are fairly common throughout the world. There are even some in southern Israel. Texas, California, Utah, Mexico, Russia, and many other places have preserved tracks. They don’t come with dates on them. Certain reasonable inferences can be made about species, stride, and velocity. Estimating the conditions necessary for preservation is also fair game. The stories made up about when the creatures evolved and made the tracks, though, are interpretations of empirical evidence, not evidence itself.(Visited 6 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest A little more moisture moved through the state yesterday and it did it sooner than what we were looking for too. So, we start the forecast this morning with a question: “does that extra moisture have any impact o the start of the week?” The answer is generally no, but we likely have to contend with some on and off clouds through the day today, and there may be enough moisture left in the atmosphere to trigger a couple of sprinkles here and there. But, generally we just look for clouds and some sun through the day, with humidity values a little elevated.We are dry for most of the rest of the week. Full sunshine in here tomorrow through Thursday. A weak trough tries to move through later Thursday afternoon and overnight, but the moisture that looks so promising as it crosses the upper Midwest and northern IL falls apart. While we wont rule out some scattered light shower potential, as it stands right now that potential is low and not enough for us to make any big precipitation call in the forecast for now. We are dry with slightly drier air behind the trough for Friday into the weekend.Our next good rain chance develops Saturday evening through Sunday as a cold front shifts through from NW to SE. This frontal complex triggers good shower potential and will also have the ability to trigger some thunderstorms as well. Rain totals for the event end up in the .25″-1.25″ range with 80% coverage. The best thunderstorm potential, and therefore the best chance for the heaviest rains, comes across NW OH. Now, while the northern part of the state clears out pretty quick behind the front Monday, it slows and stalls in far southern Ohio, which may allow for scattered lingering showers through Monday and into very early Tuesday before everything moves away.We finish the rest of the 10 day period with dry weather for Tuesday the 24th and Wednesday the 25th. The map below shows combined rain totals through the next 10 days.The extended period likely has scattered showers for Thursday the 26th, with rain potential of .1″-.5″ and coverage at 75%. The rest of the extended period is dry through Tuesday, October 1. Temps will not be as warm as nearby here, but they also do not look to fall off as fast, as all models trended warmer over the weekend. Cold air is pooling in the Canadian prairies later next week, so we are not sold on the warmer solution yet, but for the time being lets say cool temps are not a concern.

And as expected, it was acquired by a telco – CenturyLink, the third largest telecommunications company in the U.S. There’s very little to say about this acquisition that wasn’t said earlier this year when Verizon acquired Terremark and Time Warner Cable acquired NaviSite.“Verizon and Century Link have made it clear that telco’s are attacking this market and both have gone the acquisition route,” writes Gartner analyst Kyle Hilgendorf. Hilgendorf writes that Gartner has found that the biggest technical problems enterprises migrating to IaaS face are “network performance and latency issues (not to mention non-technical legal, transparency, and availability concerns).”“Telco’s are in ideal positions with their global network to solve these network issues faster than more traditional hosters or software companies,” he writes.Chuck Hollis, vice president of global marketing and chief technology officer at EMC, told us when Verizon acquired Terremark:If you believe in the secular trend that — over time — more IT will be delivered as a service vs. consumed in a traditional fashion, you quickly realize that telcos can have a compelling position.They’ve got lots and lots of pipe. They know how to deliver a related form of service — communications. They know how to price their offerings and bill for them.Their strategic motivations are usually clear as well. More ordinary network services are quickly becoming commoditized. There’s only so much content you can sell people. And, before long, you go looking for the next big market to attack.Indeed, early on, many people thought that IT-as-a-service would go to the telco carriers, and that would be that.Earlier this month, CenturyLink completed its acquisition of Qwest, which was already in the cloud game. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market In its Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service and Web Hosting, Gartner positioned Savvis as the market leader, kicking off a mini-controversy about which companies were and were not included.Rackspace must be getting some interesting offers right about now.Disclosure: Qwest Business, now owned by CenturyLink, is a ReadWriteWeb sponsorPhoto by Nicholas Smale Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting
