Baby Dinosaurs Took Three to Six Months to Hatch


Baby Dinosaurs Took Three to Six Months to Hatch. With few clues to dinosaurs’ embryonic lives, scientists assumed that young dinosaurs shared modern birds’ swift incubation period, which ranges from 45 to 80 days for eggs in the size range of dino eggs. A reptile egg generally takes about twice as long to hatch as a bird egg of similar size, says lead author Gregory Erickson, a paleobiologist at Florida State University in Tallahassee.

Neurosurgeon Performs the First Human Head Transplant

Screen Shot 2015-06-16 at 12.00.11 AMAn Italian neurosurgeon named Sergio Canavero, head of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group, believes that he can successfully perform the first human head transplant as early as 2016.

He unveiled his plans in Annapolis, Maryland, during a 2.5 hour presentation at a conference of the American Academy of Neurological and Orthopedic Surgeons. During the presentation, Canavero introduced the man who has volunteered to be the first human to undergo a head transplant.
This man, Russian-born ValerySpiridonov, is 30 years old.Spiridonov suffers from an incurable, progressive wasting ailment known asWerdnig-Hoffmann disease. If successful, a head transplant surgery could prolong his lie.

Canavero spoke during his presentation about how he would mend the severed spinal cord, which would be crucial for any such surgery, and explained major advances in the field, particularly with regards to animals.

The trick, he says, is to cut the cord with a nano blade, then use polyethylene glycol and an electrical current in a rather Frankenstein-esque manner to speed and promote the reattachment of nerve fibers cut during the surgery.

Scientific Journal Nature Reveals Why Men Exist

Screen Shot 2015-05-21 at 8.52.05 PMLadies, have you ever wondered, in times of duress or otherwise, why on earth men have to be men? Or, to all the fellas out there, have you ever questioned why your fraternal bonds even exist? Well, a panel of researchers has recently published a reason as to why men, and males in general, exist in the first place. The answer may surprise you, as it is both complex and trivial at the same time.

Published recently in the well known scientific journal Nature, the answer is quite simple: natural selection. However, these two words are but a simplification of a larger scientific process. Having two genders allows for competition within a species, meaning that one gender only mates with the best and strongest of the other. This means that only the strongest and most hardy genes get passed down, ensuring the species’ survival. But, why does this indicate that there must be two genders? Well, if a species is limited to one gender, then its members will be able to reproduce regardless of their physical or other prowess. This makes the species weaker, and with less variation between individuals. So, essentially, having both males and females keeps aa species strong, and singles out the best individuals for reproduction.
