Deinocheirus: The "Terrible Hands" Finally Get a Body. And it's WEIRD.
The most important lesson may be that dinosaurs are going to continue to surprise us. As Lee and coauthors write at the end of their paper, “The discovery of the original specimen almost half a century ago suggested that this was an unusual dinosaur, but did not prepare us for how distinctive Deinocheirus is—a true cautionary tale in predicting body forms from partial skeletons, even for animals in which the relationships are known.”

LOST CASTLE on Behance
In 1979 the Castle of Mesen was protected as a monument, but because of procedural errors that protection was undone in the following year. A new recent application for protection as a monument was not feasible. The refusal was due to the poor state of the buildings and the fear of high restoration costs. In 2010 the church, chapel and classroom buildings have been demolished.

Gaming « The Dish
Am I wrong to detect in this pile-on another round of bullying of these people, of treating them as scum, of dismissing anything they might have to say? Here are Gawker’s Sam Biddle’s tweets last week: "Ultimately #GamerGate is reaffirming what we’ve known to be true for decades: nerds should be constantly shamed and degraded into submission"

Just to make sure his point wasn’t lost, he then facetiously tweeted: "Bring Back Bullying"

This was meant ironically, of course – a debating flourish. But the joke only works when you’re re-visiting those high school wars, only to dismiss the losers of them. It was a piece of condescending ridicule, designed to rub the losers’ faces in their own demise, from a prominent perch.

#GamerGate: The Players and the Played | Paula Wright
But are radical feminist claims about games promoting violent norms really correct?  Studies of violence in video games say no. Last year the U.S. Supreme Court evaluated the evidence and came to a disappointing conclusion for people, like Sarkeesian, who are fond of using ideological rhetoric to win hearts over minds before all the evidence is in.

Israelis excel at camouflaging the expulsion of Palestinians - Diplomacy and Defense Israel News | Haaretz
As the descendants of a people which was banished throughout history from its homes and various homelands, we Israelis have developed our own expulsion skills – skills that would not embarrass the kings, nobles and officials of the goyim. Our contribution to the family of banishing nations is great, especially considering our short existence as a sovereign entity.

The future of the book | The Economist
Ammost as constant as the appeal of the book has been the worry that that appeal is about to come to an end. The rise of digital technology—and especially Amazon, a bookshop unlike any seen before—underlined those fears. In the past decade people have been falling over themselves to predict the death of books, of publishers, of authors and of bookshops, even of reading itself. Of all those believed at risk, only the bookshops have actually suffered serious damage.

De shock and awe van de regeringen-De Wever - DeWereldMorgen.be
N-VA- kamerlid Koenraad Degroote verzorgt zaterdag het welkomstwoord op het Colloquium Joris Van Severen, rond de ideeën en het werk van de oprichter van het fascistische Verdinaso. “Veroordelen, dat is overdreven. Ik ga hem niet veroordelen”, zegt hij aan Le Soir. Was hij dan geen fascist? “Je moet dat zien in de historische context van toen, dat is niet vergelijkbaar met vandaag.” Joris van Severen beschouwde Hitler als te zacht tegenover de joden. Hij hoopte dat het 'Dietsche volk' sneller werk zou maken van de verdrijving van de joden uit 'Dietsland', dan de nazi's. De omarming van dergelijke figuur komt bovenop de incidenten rond regeringsleden Theo Francken, Ben Weyts en Jan Jambon.

These Veiled Figures of Bronze and Marble by Kevin Francis Gray Seem to Drip with Fabric | Colossal

Though, unlike gods or royalty that one might expect to see rendered in such incredible detail, Gray instead creates anonymous depictions of regular individuals he encounters near his studio in London, often people struggling with addiction or other difficult, real-world issues.

A history of the They Might Be Giants song Birdhouse in Your Soul.
For many of us, the world is a bit scarier than it was in 1990: There are a lot of reasons, now, why the ocean levels are rising up. But nearly a quarter-century on, Flood and, of course, its most iconic song is still a source of comfort in a world that too often tells us to stop drawing in margins, to stop playing the class clown, to speak up, run faster, act cooler, stop daydreaming, stop sulking, stop singing, stop underachieving, stop overachieving, stop flooding. If we were to give in to sentimentality—and why would we hold back while talking about Flood—we might even, not to put too fine a point on it, call the song our nightlight.

Former Top Official Says Kim Jong-un Is No Longer in Control of North Korea | VICE News
An elite group of exiles from North Korea gathered in September in the Netherlands to discuss the state of the regime they used to serve. The conference included top diplomats, an ex-senior official of the Ministry of Security, and a high-ranking military officer, but the keynote address was given by Jang Jin-sung, formerly a key member of Kim Jong-il's propaganda machine. Included in Jang's speech was a surprising assertion: North Korea is in the midst of a civil war.

The question certainly needs to be addressed again now that Quora has made yet another desperate business model pivot into a blogging platform.Before that Quora was going to be a Pinterest knock-off. Before that it was going to be a Q&A site to compete with Wikipedia. There have been one or two other lesser pivots that I have lost track of since 2009, but you get the picture.

And there will be food--some strange, all carefully prepared, and a certain amount involving animal innards that seem better suited to ninth-grade biology class than the dinner table.

Sinquefield Cup: One of the most amazing feats in chess history just happened, and no one noticed.
FIDE is, by all accounts, comically corrupt, in the vein of other fishy global sporting bodies like FIFA and the IOC. Its Russian president, Kirsan Ilyumzhinov, who has hunkered in office for nearly two decades now, was once abducted by a group of space aliens dressed in yellow costumes who transported him to a faraway star. Though I am relying here on Ilyumzhinov’s personal attestations, I have no reason to doubt him, as this is something about which he has spoken quite extensively. He is of the firm belief that chess was invented by extraterrestrials, and further “insists that there is ‘some kind of code’ in chess, evidence for which he finds in the fact that there are 64 squares on the chessboard and 64 codons in human DNA.”
