Barbie Gives Princess Leia a Stylish Makeover Princess Leia, along with Darth Vader and R2-D2, have received high-fashion makeovers for Barbie's new line of Star Wars-inspired dolls.

Princess Takamado of Japan landed on Prince Edward Island for the first time since 2004 early Tuesday evening.

While Princess Takamado is on the Island she will be visiting UPEI and touring Sekisui Diagnostics.

'Nearly-complete' skeleton of a 26-foot long duck-billed dinosaur that roamed modern-day Japan 72 million years ago is unearthed.
It has been named Kamuysaurus japonicus after a spiritual being worshipped by people on Hokkaido Island, in northern Japan, where it was dug up. The plant eater was more duck billed than most with a face like a shovel at the end of a long neck. It was 26 feet (eight metres) long and weighed more than five tons. It was at least nine years old at the time of its death, making it a juvenile. It had a thin, bony crest on its head - a feature of the hadrosaur family to which it belonged. Kamuysaurus was a member of the species known as Edmontosaurus that roamed Earth during the Late Cretaceous.
