"I would never suggest that this prediction, however statistically sound, is the final word on dinosaur diversity," Dodson said. "My intention is to fuel the discussion using the facts at hand, and this is the best estimate we can make with the data available." … [Read more...] about Unknown Dinosaurs: Golden Age of Discovery Ahead

Lots of beadsFarong was laid to rest wearing a necklace made of about 5,000 beads. The thread that held the necklace together had decomposed; however, "since the distribution [of the beads] was very concentrated, it was possible to reconstruct it based upon the position of the pieces at the time of excavation," the archaeologists wrote. … [Read more...] about Ancient Bling: Exquisite Jewelry Found in Tomb of Chinese Woman
"We wanted to create a system that let us tell our narrative month after month, year after year, and then throw in the story elements to it. So, if you're a PVP player, you should still feel like you beat the campaign. If you're a PVE player, or like me, I plan on sailing with my daughter a lot, I want us to be able to go through the story and become kingpins together, and be able to tell the same world narrative through the game ones that we build." … [Read more...] about Skull & Bones release date, news and trailers
As configured at $1,563, the Lemur Pro is not a cheap laptop—but it doesn't look, feel, or perform like one, either. The Intel Comet Lake CPU wouldn't be our first choice if we designed a laptop from scratch, but as an entire system, it's hard to find much fault with the Lemur Pro—particularly when limiting the field to OEM Linux laptops alone. As always, "the unboxing experience" isn't exactly at the forefront of our review criteria—but if it's important to you, System76 won't leave you hanging. The inside of the box is gaily printed with fun, golden-age sci-fi motifs that your kids might appreciate even if you don't, and the laptop is protected by folded heavy cardboard rather than foam bricks. It's lightweight, eco-friendly, doesn't leave a mess on the floor, and is highly reusable to boot—as long as you don't make the unnecessary mistake of cutting it with a knife, that is. … [Read more...] about System76’s Lemur Pro: A powerful, ultralight OEM Linux laptop
All of that is still true in The Lost Legacy. The game doesn’t stray from the formula at all, and if you loved Uncharted 4 — a game that, in my estimation, was the pinnacle of the series’ formula — then The Lost Legacy is simply more of the same. What helps keep it interesting is the new characters. Uncharted 4 introduced incidental dialogue to the series, as characters would chatter in the background while you drove through muddy streams or climbed precariously along the edge of a mountain. The Lost Legacytakes things a step further. The relationship between Chloe and Nadine forms naturally over the course of the game, primarily through that incidental dialogue found in the smaller, quieter moments when you’re doing things other than watching cut-scenes. … [Read more...] about Uncharted: The Lost Legacy review: who needs Nathan Drake?
