Blue Bombers fan hopes 18-year pants-less streak ends as he heads to Grey Cup
A Bomber fan who has been strutting around in shorts since he told some friends he wouldn't wear pants until the Winnipeg Blue Bombers won the Grey Cup will be heading to the championship game to watch his team compete on Sunday.In late November 2001, Chris Matthew told some friends he wouldn't wear pants until the Bombers won the CFL championship, figuring his team would win it a few days later when they faced the Calgary Stampeders.

A fossilized creature with oddly dark bones has emerged as the first of its name in a newly described line of toothy pterosaurs, paleontologists report in the journal Historical Biology. Dubbed Targaryendraco wiedenrothi, in a nod to the fictional House Targaryen from the blockbuster TV series Game of Thrones, the reptile is the most complete Cretaceous pterosaur known from Germany.
The team also assigned six other already known pterosaurs believed to be close relatives to the newly created Targaryendraconia group. Members of this line had wingspans between 10 and 26 feet and unusually narrow snouts that ended in teeth jutting forward from the tip of the jaw.

Have you ever looked closely at your closet and realized that you favor one color over others? Most people probably assume that all New Yorkers’ closets are bursting with black ( you might be right), but beyond the all-black New York wardrobe, you have your neutral-palette wearers

Found in places as disparate as England, the U.S., Brazil, and Australia, “all these species are from shallow coastal environments and probably fed on fish,” says study leader Rodrigo Pêgas, a paleontologist at Universidade Federal do ABC inSão Bernardo do Campo, Brazil. “The slenderness of jaw is the main feature they share … it’s the most extreme slenderness in the jaws of any toothed pterosaurs.”
The reassignment showcases how much our understanding of these winged wonders has increased in recent years, both via the discovery of new fossils and via new efforts to analyze and compare fossil material in museum collections, says Taissa Rodrigues, a pterosaur expert at the Universidade Federal do Espírito Santo in Brazil, who was not involved in the new study.
Ontario to allow e-scooters on roadways in five-year trial period
TORONTO — Ontario is starting a five-year pilot project beginning Jan. 1 to allow e-scooters on roads. The two-wheeled, motorized vehicles are currently illegal to operate anywhere in the province other than on private property. The pilot will let municipalities decide whether to allow e-scooters on municipal roads, including parks and trails. E-scooter drivers will have to be at least 16 years old and wear a helmet, and their vehicles will need to have a horn or bell and a front and rear light.The government says Quebec and Alberta are also running e-scooter pilots.

“The naming of Targaryendraco crowns the recognition of an overlooked lineage of flying reptiles … that lived for millions of years during the Cretaceous,” she says.
You know (almost) nothing
A flying contemporary of the dinosaurs, Targaryendraco lived 130 million years ago, when the part of Germany where it was found was the coastline of a warm and shallow sea.
The fossil includes parts of its ribs and wings, as well as its jaws. That may not sound like much, but the specimen is relatively complete compared to the very fragmentary remains of other German pterosaurs from this time period. The bones reveal that Targaryendraco had a long and narrow snout with sharp teeth perfect for snapping up fish from the surface of the ocean.
“The wings were elongate and narrow, and this shape is specific for modern birds and bats that fish on the wing,” Pêgas says.
Amateur fossil hunter Kurt Wiedenroth foundthe fossil bones in 1984 in a clay pit at Engelbostel, near Hanover in northern Germany. They areperhaps dark in color due to a quirk of the minerals in the rocks where they formed. In 1990, Wiedenroth donated the specimen to the natural history museum in Stuttgart, where it was studied and assigned as a new species within the Ornithocheirus group of pterosaurs, called Ornithocheirus wiedenrothi.

However, as more pterosaurs have been discovered and scientists’ understanding of these flying reptiles has ballooned, it became clear that some of the species labelled Ornithocheirus were not closely related and instead represented different kinds of pterosaurs.
In paleontology, it’s common to have named groups that contain species that are still poorly understood. These become so-called wastebasket taxa, into which newly unearthed species that are fragmentary or have not been thoroughly vetted may get tossed, explains Darren Naish, a paleontologist affiliated with the University of Southampton in the U.K.
“People assumed other finds from around the world belonged to the same group, and kept applying the same name,” he says. “Among pterosaurs, Ornithocheirus is the best example.”
But Pêgas and his co-authors at the Museu Nacional in Rio de Janeiro and the Institut Català de Paleontologia, in Barcelona, Spain, have now restudied Ornithocheirus wiedenrothi and redescribed it as Targaryendraco wiedenrothi, since true members of Ornithocheirus have a more rounded jaw.
European Tour lets players wear shorts for first time
MALELANE, South Africa — Golfers were allowed to wear shorts during a European Tour event for the first time on Thursday because of sweltering temperatures. The decision to relax rules at the 2020 season-opening Alfred Dunhill Championship in South Africa was made after discussions between players, European Tour CEO Keith Pelley, and tournament host Johann Rupert. It applies for this event only. Temperatures are predicted to reach 40 degrees Celsius (104 F) over the next few days at the Leopard Creek Country Club, which borders the Kruger Park wildlife reserve in northern South Africa.

“It's been thought for decades among pterosaur specialists that this species isn’t really part of Ornithocheirus,” says Naish, who was not one of the study authors.
A dance with dragons
As for the new name, the dark fossils reminded the study authors of the black bones of the House Targaryen dragons. What’s more, “pterosaurs have inspired some biological aspects of the dragons” from the series, they write in their paper.
Typically, when dragons are depicted in books, films, and artwork, they have six limbs: four legs and two wings.
“But this doesn’t make any biological sense,” Pêgas argues. In nature, no known vertebrate creature has ever existed that has this many limbs in this configuration.
Taking cues from the anatomy of pterosaurs, which are real creatures that lived millions of years ago, Game of Thrones creator George R. R. Martin instead imagined his fictional dragons to have four limbs: two wings for forelimbs and two hind legs.
Pêgas says he admired this decision: “I always thought this was very nice, especially because I work on pterosaurs.” Plus, he admits, “I am a big nerd and a big fan of Game of Thrones.”
The reason you should never wear orange to a job interview .
Unfortunately for people who love dressing in sunny colours, a job interview is not the best place to break out your bright orange three-piece suit. In a 2013 study, CareerBuilder surveyed 2099 hiring managers and human resources representatives. The study found that 25 percent of them think that not only is orange the worst colour to wear to an interview, it’s also most likely to be associated with a lack of professionalism.Related video: 5 steps to creating a happy workplace [Provided by Inc.
