>Michael Benton, professor of vertebrate paleontology at the University of Bristol in England, says a new dinosaur species is named about once a week, on average. Another paleontologist, Thomas R. Holtz Jr. of the University of Maryland, keeps a running tally of new dinos each year for an encyclopedia he is in the process of updating. He’s up to 14 this year. In 2015, he hit 45.

i work with dudes that coauthor with the motherfucker at the top of that chart.
the chinese government pays him huge bonuses for naming new species. so every specimen that comes out of the ground is a new species.
Nature and Science won't publish vertebrate paleontology articles that don't include a new species identification.
nothing will change until political instability reduces the rate at which the chinese government can dig in Shishigou. even then there will be a lag where they publish for decades out of the warehouse.
I actually did my bachelor thesis on this. A professor in Germany dug up loads of specimens of seemingly different species of giant amphibians.Museums were therefore forced to buy them(preserve history bla bla) while the only real differences were minimal.
After public consolation and a vote in the house the Liberal government has placed a cap on all private refugees and stopped the public sponsorship program. I'm no Trudeau fan but i'm impressed with his latest moves which include the based new child tax credit to increase dropping fertility rates in the ~85% majority ethnic european population.

>>33945 >to increase dropping fertility rates in the ethnic european population. >focused on the issue of lack of fertility among natural born residents. gonna need some citations on this, would be glad to hear it but my own understanding is that his crop of brand new canadians (who generally have a far higher birthrate anyway) will be just as eligible for the child benefit.
While Christian women are on the whole more religious than Christian men, Muslim women and Muslim men have similar levels of religious commitment. And when it comes to attendance at worship services, Muslim men are more active than Muslim women.
Christian women also are more likely than Christian men – by an average of 7 percentage points (68% vs. 61%) – to say religion is “very important” to them.
But among Muslims, there is no difference... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Women live longer on average. Older people are more likely to be religious. The free movement of women is often limited in Islamic countries. Muslim women in radically Islamic places are possibly more likely to think that Islam is crap since it makes their life shittier than a male Muslim's life.
Sad. A good immigrant was killed by his ethnic "brethren" for the sin of assimilation. What a mess. I can only imagine the amount of white flight going on through parts of Europe, at least for those who can afford it.

If you're of able mind and do dumb shit then you deserve the consequences. Make laws making it illegal only to do such things against children and the simple minded and the elderly.
>The investigation into this week’s deadly attacks in Brussels has prompted worries that the Islamic State is seeking to attack, infiltrate or sabotage nuclear installations or obtain nuclear or radioactive material.

Responding to a disturbance call early Tuesday, officers encountered Suzanne Hurlvert, 51, in the Crestview home she shares with Carl Owen Smith, 66.
