We're thrilled to announce that, as of today, The Times has implemented a G+ share button on all articles on nytimes.com. Many of you have awaited this change over the past several months and we hope you'll begin using our new G+ button right away to easily share New York Times journalism with others. Without further ado, we share with you this fascinating story about a report published today on the origin of polar bears.
After analyzing DNA samples from the two species, scientists reported that polar bears are not descended from brown bears.

We've already received some truly memorable submissions. Submit yours before next Tuesday.
The New York Times originally shared:
 
For the New York Times Magazine's end-of-year issue, The Lives They Lived, you're invited to contribute a photograph that illustrates a story from the life of someone close to you who passed away in 2011.

I can't stop watching this.
 
+The Gregory Brothers, known for their hilarious YouTube music-video mash-ups, in which they make songs out of non-songs and unintentional singers out of intentional speakers, submitted this Op-Doc video to The Times. You'll notice it's hard not to groove along.
The Gregory Brothers present a musical video mash-up about what Mitt Romney likes — from lakes and trees to music and cars to grits and “Twilight.”
