The new dinosaur, described in the journal PLOS ONE by paleontologists Rodolfo Coria and Philip Currie, is named Murusraptor barrosaensis. The dinosaur’s name is a tribute to how it was found. During an expedition to Sierra Barrosa in northwestern Patagonia, Coria says, team member Sergio Saldivia spotted dinosaur bones jutting from the 80 million-year-old stone. Because the disarticulated pieces were found in a canyon wall, Coria and Currie combined the Latin words for "wall" (murus) and "thief" (raptor) to coin Murusraptor.).
It's a gorgeous new megaraptor – but scientists can't agree on what a megaraptor is.

<sound of the world's tiniest violin>
Back in his past life as a political consultant—where he engineered public relations coups like the famous “Revolving Door” ad that more or less single-handedly destroyed Michael Dukakis—Fox News CEO Roger Ailes once asked a rhetorical question: “If you have two guys on a stage and one guy says, ‘I

A quick guide to Brexit
Theresa May has promised that the Brexit will happen, so what does that future look like?
Q: So what happens when we fall out the EU at the end of the Article 50 process?
A: It's Year Zero. We will have no trade deals, no financial arrangements with the EU or anyone else. We're like a man being thrown out of a plane into the sea with no lifejacket. Seriously. I'm not making this up. It's scary.

That is not a Pokeball, you guys
some rather enthusiastic players spotted what they thought was a Pokéball floating in the ocean near Isla Vista, California. So of COURSE they swam out and got it.
Turns out this red and white ball attached to a wad of kelp contained no Pokémon. Instead it contained a GPS unit used to track kelp drift along the California coast. OOPS.

DON'T GOTTA CATCH 'EM ALL Love it or hate it, Pokémon Go is undeniably a phenomenon. Although we here at DSN previously warned of the perils of Poké hunting

"In the 150 years since Schwendener, biologists have tried in vain to grow lichens in laboratories. Whenever they artificially united the fungus and the alga, the two partners would never fully recreate their natural structures. It was as if something was missing—and Spribille might have discovered it."
Biology textbooks tell us that lichens are alliances between two organisms—a fungus and an alga. They are wrong.

Milo finally kicked off Twiter
the microblogging service permanently suspended the account of conservative commentator Milo Yiannopoulos, a day after he incited his followers to bombard Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones with racist and demeaning tweets.
Milo, Breitbart and their followers are of course already yelling "Free Speech!", because that is their go-to excuse for everything. Turns out Twitter isn't covered by the 1st amendment.

#FreeMilo ..? You do know he's not actually in jail, don't you?
The move comes less than a day after the notorious internet troll led a tweeted harassment campaign against Ghostbusters actor Leslie Jones.

"As predicted, the popular and useful Social Sciences repository SSRN, having been acquired by Elsevier, is now being destroyed. Papers are being quietly vanished from SSRN, without their authors even being notified. This is happening even in cases when the copyright is held by the authors (who posted them, giving implicit permission for them to be redistributed), and even more astonishingly when papers are under Creative Commons licences."

Timing coincidence, say Police
On july 5th Chris LeDay shared the video of Alton Sterling's death. The next day he was detained while going to work at a Military Air Base. He was then put in handcuffs and leg shackles and taken to jail.

The Dunwoody Police Department confirmed that timeline but said LeDay's arrest was unrelated to the Facebook post. "If Mr. LeDay had paid his fines or appeared in Court and settled the matter approximately two years ago, a warrant for Failure to Appear would not have been issued and Mr. LeDay would not have been arrested on these charges,
Chris LeDay says he was arrested and shackled for a two-year-old traffic violation.
