Many scientists had taken position that the angus mammoth and the fluted artifact were a good association however there were the few skeptics who continued to look for and argue that the site was too old and therefore impossible to validate the discovery. Henry F. Osborne, a leading paleontologist, believed this finding represented the mammoth’s migration to North America from the Old world. The sites stratigraphy was studied again in the 80s and it was
Title Researchers and scientists have constructed extensive research on dinosaur’s extinction. Speculation instead of real evidence seems common in most theories about the dinosaurs’ extinction. However, Jay Gould’s essay “Sex, Drugs, and the Extinction of Dinosaurs” is the complete opposite of speculation over evidence. Rather, Gould uses the mix of persuasive techniques, such as rhetorical questions, logos, along with profound evidence to not only disapprove of other theories but convince readers of his place on the dinosaur’s extinction. As one is able to attest, logos are evident within every passage of this essay.
In both the movies Jurassic Park and Jurassic World many ethical principles are seen as going wrong. The dinosaurs were created genetically out of labs and by taking dinosaur DNA from mosquitoes and using frogs to create the rest of the dinosaurs. The information about how the dinosaurs were exactly made was concealed from the people; creating harmful, dangerous dinosaurs. Due to the lack of security and protection of the dinosaurs, they were able to roam around and act like the true animal that they were, carnivores. Causing a lot of danger and destruction.
TITLE “Sue” is one of the biggest and most complete T-rex skeleton ever found (text book pg. 140). If this skeleton would’ve been lost to illegal fossil trade dealers, then scientists and paleontologists would have also lost valuable evidence. Fossils are dead organisms that are buried by sediment that hardens, and then preserves the form of the dead organism (text book pg. 141).
There are many movies with scientific inaccuracies, but the movie Jurassic Park stood out the most. Jurassic Park has many different kind of inaccuracies and some are just small and some are major. The scientific inaccuracies I picked out to explain are the Velociraptor Inaccuracies, Tyrannosaurus Rex Inaccuracies, Dilophosaurus Inaccuracies, Brachiosaur Inaccuracies, Fossil Excavation Inaccuracies, and the Dino- DNA Inaccuracies. Sometimes it can be hard to find scientific inaccuracies and then sometimes I could be difficult. Just depends on how well you pay attention to the movie and how well you know about the objects in the movie.
The storyline tries to make us to think about what is going in the story. The characters need to come up with how they are going to take down the dinosaur. Time traveling can affect many of the characters in certain ways. For example, In Sound of Thunder Eckels accidentally falls off the path which affects the timeline. Eckels learned that there were consequences to what he did.
In “Nuclear Waste” by Richard A. Muller, he expresses his concerns about radioactive material in Yucca Mountain that will be left behind for thousands of years and the unfamiliar dangers that we face. He starts by stating that nuclear waste is one of the biggest issues that our government faces even though they highly follow their “safe” nuclear waste disposal. He stresses how the government prototype nuclear waste facility at Yucca Mountain is supposed to be so safe, but they built it on a site that was created by volcanic activity. Scientist have contemplated many different ways to dispose of nuclear waste, but they all seem like the worse than their previous ideas and some still are considering more nuclear power. After his intense evaluation
And the climate must be dry in order to maintain a fire at high temperatures for long periods of time, and must also have many carbon-rich forests, and plenty of iron. For example, the Inca’s had specialists, but no iron due to their climate. Therefore, they were unable to develop steel. Spain, oh the other hand, and the right materials and specialists, so they were able to develop steel. This made it easy for them to conquer the Incas, who had only weapons of bronze.
Over the past few decades the ideas of aliens has morphed into a craze, that one has to ask themselves, “what is an alien?” With “aliens” being in Hollywood movies and roller coaster rides, what do we actually consider to be aliens? Is it a life form that doesn’t live on earth or is it a “little green man”(dictionary.com). The media has totally changed the perspective of what foreign life forms are. Making them almost unbelievable. The term alien no longer has the mystery and excitement and possibility behind it, rather it has become a more colloquial term in regards to disbelieve.
Yeti, the urban legend from Nepal The Yeti is ancient legend of the people living in Himalaya and mountains of Asia and is also known as Abominable Snowman. The Yeti has been described as a muscular, covered with dark grayish hair weighing between 200-400 lbs.  Though dozens of trails and tracks in snow has been found sometimes but the existence of the Yeti has still remained unproven. Yetis are urban legends which are usually found in stories and rumors but there are no proper evidence of it in real life yet. Most of the evidence for the Yeti comes from reports and sightings like the bigfoots and the Chupacabra.
Were dinosaurs warm or cold blooded has been a long time debated issue. Scientist believe dinosaurs were much like modern day reptiles, cold blooded, and others believe dinosaurs were much like mammals and others birds, warm blooded. Dinosaurs are creatures that lived on Earth around 251 million years ago. Dinosaurs lived in the Mesozoic Era. This era contained three separate subsections: the Triassic Era, the Jurassic Era, and the Cretaceous.
Within the novel it said. “ ...intelligences greater than man’s and yet as mortal as his own..”(Wells 9). Here Wells signals the readers the Martians will most likely not be able to conquer Earth because despite their intellectual, scientific, and technological superiority the aliens are not immortal and thus will have to pass away at some point. Another example is, “ ...sticking into the skin of our old planet Earth like a poisoned dart” (Wells 43). This statement could be interpreted as the Martins imitating that of numerous toxins coursing through a body.
I decided not to climb up the seamount because I was still weary of the possibility of there being an eruption and I continued on my way. While walking from the Bear Seamount, I came across the Mid-Atlantic Ridge (38.7691,-30.96474). Commonly called MAR for short, the ridge is the longest mountain range in the world. It was formed by the tectonic plates diverging. Through this rift, magma rises from the mantle and erupts as lava to produce new crust material on the torn edges of the tectonic plates.
In this set of the material, the reading suggests that dinosaurs are endotherms with evidences. The speaker in the listening, however, argues that the arguments in the reading could not prove the dinosaurs to be endothermic animals. First, the passage suggests that the existence of dinosaurs’ fossil in polar regions indicates that dinosaurs are endothermic. Fundamentally, only endothermic animals could be active in polar regions because they maintain their own temperature. The speaker, on the contrary suggests that the the polar argument could not prove dinosaurs to be endothermic.
The 4-card task 1. A situation where we think logically would be that dinosaurs exist. You can say it 's logical that dinosaurs exist because they 're are bones and fossils that support the evidence, as well as our technology that can access the time period with carbon dating. 2. My mom had knee and back surgery it 's logical to think that she 's not in a good shape to work like before.
