SpaceX Crew Dragon docks with the space station in demo flight

  SpaceX’s Crew Dragon capsule, its first spacecraft designed to carry humans, took flight for the first time Saturday.

  An uncrewed demonstration mission took off from Kennedy Space Center in Florida early Saturd

ay for the International Space Station. NASA tweet

ed early Sunday that it had attached to the International Space Station.

  ”Capture confirmed!” it said.

  The successful launch without people puts SpaceX one step closer to

an historic landmark: Crew Dragon could be the first commercially built sp

acecraft to carry NASA astronauts to orbit. And Crew Dragon — along with a capsule called Sta

rliner built by Boeing — could end the United States’ decade-long reliance on Russia for human spaceflight.

  Elon Musk, SpaceX’s chief executive and lead designer, told a cro

wd of reporters that he was “emotionally exhausted” after launch. His rocket com

pany’s main goal since it was founded in 2002 was to someday send humans to space.

  ”It’s been 17 years to get to this point,” he said. It took “an in

credible amount of hard work and sacrifice from a lot of people to get to this point.”

So what happened in between? Moros is helping researc

  hers fill that 70 million-year gap, as well as provide a portrait of tyrannosaur lineage in North America. Moros links the earliest, smaller tyrannosaurs to Tyrannosaurus rex.

  ”With a lethal combination of bone-crunching bite forces, stereoscopic vision, rapid growth rates, and colossal size, tyrant dinosa

urs reigned uncontested for 15 million years leading up to the end-Cretaceous extinction — but it wasn’

t always that way,” said Lindsay Zanno, lead study author and paleontologist at North Carolina State Un

iversity, in a statement. “When and how quickly tyrannosaurs went from wallflower to prom king has been vexing pal

eontologists for a long time. The only way to attack this problem was to get out there and find more data on these rare animals.”

  Zanno and her team spent a decade searching for fossils from the Late Cretaceous period. Th

ey recovered teeth and a hind limb consisting of a femur, a tibia and parts of a foot belonging to Mo

ros in the same area where Zanno found the fossil of a giant carnivorous carcharodontosaur.

  But Moros stood between 3 and 4 feet tall. The dinosaur they found was 7 years old when it died, a nearly full-grown adult

that would have weighed around 172 pounds. The elongated leg and foot bones indicated that it would be a great runner.

  Giant dinosaur footprints found and saved from floods in Queensland

  ”Moros was lightweight and exceptionally fast,” Zanno said. “

These adaptations, together with advanced sensory capabilities, are the mark of a formida

ble predator. It could easily have run down prey, while avoiding confrontation with the top predators of the day.”

Ravi?”Ravi nodded vigorously. “Piscine?”I nodded

Ravi?”Ravi nodded vigorously.
“Piscine?”I nodded even more vigorously.
He kept his eyes on me.
I nodded so hard I’m surprised my neck didn’t snap andmy head fall to the floor.

I would like to say in my own defence that though I mayhave anthropomorphized the animals till they spoke fluentEnglish, the pheasants complaining in uppity British accents oftheir tea being cold and the baboons planning their bankrobbery getaway in

the flat, menacing tones of Americangangsters, the fancy was always conscious. I quite deliberatelydressed wild animals in tame costumes of my imagination. But Inever deluded myself as to the real nature of my playmates.

My poking nose had more sense than that. I don’t knowwhere Father got the idea that his youngest son was itching tostep into a cage with a ferocious carnivore. But

wherever thestrange worry came from – and Father was a worrier – hewas clearly determined to rid himself of it that very morning.

“I found a good book about archery.” Sam frowned. “Doing it is harder than reading about it, though. I get blisters.”

“Keep at it. We may need your bow on the Wall if the Others turn up some dark night.”

“Oh, I hope not.”

More guards stood outside the king’s solar. “No arms are allowed in His Grace’s presence, my lord,” their serjeant said. “I’ll need that sword. Your knives as well.” It would do no good to protest, Jon knew. He handed them his weaponry.

Within the solar the air was warm. Lady Melisandre was seated near the fire, her ruby glimmering against the pale skin of her throat. Ygritte had been kissed by fire; the red

priestess was fire, and her hair was blood and flame. Stannis stood behind the rough-hewn table where the Old Bear had once been wont to sit and take his meals. Covering the table was a large map of the north, painted on a ragged piece of hide.

The cruelty is often more active and direct. The

The cruelty is often more active and direct. The literaturecontains reports on the many torments inflicted upon zooanimals: a shoebill dying of shock

after having its beaksmashed with a hammer; a moose stag losing its beard,

alongwith a strip of flesh the size of an index finger, to a visitor’sknife (this same moose was poisoned six months later); amonkey’s arm broken after reaching out for proffered nuts; adeer’s antlers attacked with a hacksaw; a

zebra stabbed with asword; and other assaults on other animals, with walking sticks,umbrellas, hairpins, knitting needles, scissors and whatnot, oftenwith an aim to taking an eye out or to injuring sexual parts.

Animals are also poisoned. And there are indecencies evenmore bizarre: onanists breaking a sweat on monkeys, ponies,birds; a religious freak who cut a snake’s head off; a derangedman who took to urinating in an elk’s mouth.
At Pondicherry we were relatively fortunate. We were sparedthe sadists who plied European and American zoos.

Nonetheless, our golden agouti vanished, stolen by someonewho ate it, Father suspected. Various birds – pheasants,peacocks, macaws – lost feathers to people greedy for theirbeauty. We caught a man with a knife climbing into

the penfor mouse deer; he said he was going to punish evil Ravana(who in the Ramayana took the form of a deer when hekidnapped Sita, Rama’s consort). Another man was nabbed inthe process of

Stannis Baratheon was proving to be a prickly guest, and a restless one. He had ridden down the kingsroad almost as far as Queenscrown, prowled through the empty hovels of Mole’s Town, inspected the ruined forts at

Queensgate and Oakenshield. Each night he walked atop the Wall with Lady Melisandre, and during the days he visited the stockades, picking captives out

for the red woman to question. He does not like to be balked. This would not be a pleasant morning, Jon feared.

From the armory came a clatter of shields and swords, as the latest lot of boys and raw recruits armed themselves. He could hear the voice of Iron Emmett

telling them to be quick about it. Cotter Pyke had not been pleased to lose him, but the young ranger had a gift for training men. He loves to fight,

and he’ll

teach his boys

to love it too.

Or so he hoped.

On December 26, some netizens uploaded a video of pandas

On December 26, some netizens uploaded a video of pandas

playing with kitchen knives. In the video, the panda “Mengmeng”

holds a kitchen knife in both hands and puts it on his face. Some visitors see it and shout at the panda, “It’s too dangerous, throw it away, throw it away”, and then “Mengmeng” throws the kitchen knife away. Video has attracted a lot of attention on the Internet.

Today (December 27), the Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Research Base responded by saying that on December 26, at 9 am, the on-duty keepers replaced new enrichment items and added bamboo for them at the Mengmeng Stadium,

because the kitchen knife used to cut the rope of the original enrichment items was forgotten in the stadium. “Mengmeng” found the kitchen knife in the stadium and put it in his hand to play. The security guard on duty next to the stadium soon found

out and notified the keeper. The keeper immediately took “Mengmeng” back to the veterinary shed, took the kitchen knife away, and made a detailed inspection of “Mengmeng”

to confirm that she had not been harmed, and then put it back to the stadium.

According to the base, the keeper has always been careful in his daily work,

full of deep feelings for each giant panda, and is very sorry and self-reproached for his negligence. In order to deeply learn the lesson and seriously work discipline, the base has made the following treatment to

the breeders concerned: 1. Convening a general meeting of all breeders to give serious criticism and education to the breeders, requiring all breeders to take precautions; 2. I submit a written review and report criticism

within the base; 3. Canceling the qualifications of the excellent staff of the breeder this year; 4. Deducting the performance of the breeders. Effective salary; 5. Deduction of performance salary of relevant managers. The accident exposed the shortcomings of the base management. The base is profoundly

 

introspective and will comprehensively

check the loopholes in the work,

cite one example from another,

and rectify the problems as soon as possible.

Thistle, he thought. “Ever get tired of me, Mummy?”

Thistle, he thought.

“Ever get tired of me, Mummy?”

“Of all the idiotic questions ever asked, that takes the grand prize!” Mrs. Langwell answered. “Can I help you?”

“Of course you can.”

The getting ready did not take long, and exactly half an hour later, Nike lighted about a mile from the Flying Field where the girl Sky-Pilot found her passenger had just arrived. The woman came in a taxicab, nodded a greeting,

 

paid the driver, then came briskly to the waiting plane. Her throat was wrapped in a scarf.

Haggon would call it an abomination, the blackest sin of all, but Haggon was dead, devoured, and burned. Mance would have cursed him as well, but Mance was slain or captured. No one

 

will ever know. I will be Thistle the spearwife, and Varamyr Sixskins will be dead. His gift would perish with his body, he expected. He would lose his wolves, and live out the rest of his days as

some scrawny, warty woman … but he would live. If she comes back. If I am still strong enough to take her.

 

A wave of dizziness washed over Varamyr. He found himself upon his knees, his hands buried in a snowdrift. He scooped up a fistful of snow and filled his mouth with it, rubbing it through

 

his beard and against his cracked lips, sucking down the moisture. The water was so cold that he could barely bring himself to swallow, and he realized once again how hot he was.

“We haven’t heard anything from him this morning,

“We haven’t heard anything from him this morning, but your father plans to stop at his office on the way in to town.”

Before Mance, Varamyr Sixskins had been a lord of sorts. He lived alone in a hall of moss and mud and hewn logs that had once been Haggon’s, attended by his beasts. A dozen villages did

him homage in bread and salt and cider, offering him fruit from their orchards and vegetables from their gardens. His meat he got himself. Whenever he desired a woman he sent his

shadowcat to stalk her, and whatever girl he’d cast his eye upon would follow meekly to his bed. Some came weeping, aye, but still they came. Varamyr gave them his seed, took a hank of

their hair to remember them by, and sent them back. From time to time, some village hero would come with spear in hand to slay the beastling and save a sister or a lover or a daughter.

Those he killed, but he never harmed the women. Some he even blessed with children. Runts. Small, puny things, like Lump, and not one with the gift.

While Roberta was eating her belated breakfast any number of neighbors came in to congratulate the family because its property was safe, and, those who did not know the facts,

to get details of the attempted theft. Once the conversation was interrupted by the sudden and sharp clanging of a bell which made them all jump. But Mrs. Langwell glanced out of the

window and saw the electrician waving his hand so she knew he was merely testing the alarm, and reassured the callers.
