Bizarre 12-Ton Dinosaur Crouched Like a Cat | National Geographic | September 27, 2018
Some 200 million years ago in what's now South Africa, a dinosaur that weighed as much as two adult African elephants loomed over the landscape. The new dinosaur, looks like a sauropod, but it's technically not. Instead, Ledumahadi is an earlier, more distant cousin called a sauropodomorph. It is a much bigger animal living much earlier in the age of dinosaurs than researchers normally expect to see, so its discoverers etched their surprise into the dinosaur's name: Ledumahadi mafube, Southern Sotho for “a giant thunderclap [at] dawn.” Biology and Geology Professor Kristi Curry Rogers, who's a vertebrate paleontologist, was quoted.

However, that same poll found more than half of Americans mainly watch TV by way of cable or satellite, highlighting the gray-area phase of television’s disruption. Media and Cultural Studies professor Michael Griffin has seen a lot of changes in his 20-year career at Macalester. He says the changes happening in TV and streaming are similar to what happened when cable entered the game. The main difference driving this movement: smartphones.
