China rejects "ridiculous" U.S. accusation of S.China Sea militarisation

  China rejects U.S. assertions that China is militarizing the South China Sea are "ridiculous," China said on Thursday, after U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Washington would confront China's actions in the disputed waterways. Mattis said on Tuesday the United States would push back against what it sees as China's militarisation of islands in the South China Sea despite China's condemnation of a voyage through the region on the weekend by two U.S. Navy ships.

Researchers have unearthed 29 footprints in a layer of sediment on the shoreline of Calvert Island in British Columbia. Between 11,000 and 14,000 years ago, as the world was coming This article appeared in the South China Morning Post print edition as: prehistoric footprints oldest in n america.

This critter was roaming the planet millions of years before the first mammals, the first dinosaurs, and even the first fish.

Created before the Cambrian Explosion — a sudden burst in animal diversity that took place about 541 million years ago — scientists think these are the oldest trackways ever discovered on Earth. They published their findings Wednesday in the journal Science Advances.

“Animals use their appendages to move around, to build their homes, to fight, to feed, and sometimes to help mate,” Virginia Tech University geobiologist and lead study author Shuhai Xiao told the Guardian. This early evidence of limbed critters is important for scientists, he added, as it can help us understand their evolution.

The fossil trackways — preserved between two ancient layers of rock — are very narrow, measuring about half an inch in width. Each print itself is less than 0.08 inches in size. The trackways themselves are accompanied by burrows, which have previously been linked to simple creatures similar to the worms of today.

The researchers speculate that the same creature left both the tracks and the burrows, suggesting an animal that scurried and tunneled its way across the ground. The tracks are slightly uneven, however, so it might not have been as sure on its feet as today’s bugs.

The authors can’t tell exactly what kind of animal made the tracks, but they can narrow it down to something with pairs of matching legs.

MSNBC host Joy Reid takes heat for newly unearthed 9/11 conspiracy posts

  MSNBC host Joy Reid takes heat for newly unearthed 9/11 conspiracy posts Joy Reid is under fire again for her old blog posts, this time for promoting a film that says 9/11 was an inside job. In one post from her now-shuttered blog "The Reid Report,"dated March 22, 2006, Reid urged her readers to watch "Loose Change 9/11," a film series produced in part by Alex Jones that put forth a number of conspiracy theories related to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks -- chiefly that they were carried out by the United States government.

“The footprints are organized in two parallel rows, as expected if they were made by animals with paired appendages,” Xiao told the Independent. “Also, they are organized in repeated groups, as expected if the animal had multiple paired appendages."

"But,” he added, “unless the animal died and was preserved next to its footprints, it is hard to say with confidence who made the footprints."

Footprints are a precious commodity for scientists. In the last few months alone, they’ve revealed the hunting patterns of early humans — who, it turns out, may have preyed on giant sloths — and shed light on our species’ migration around the globe.

But, these valuable imprints aren’t always treated with the respect they deserve. Utah’s Red Fleet State Park recently reported that tourists have been ripping up 200-million-year-old dinosaur tracks and tossing them into a reservoir nearby.
