BUENOS AIRES – Argentine experts have discovered the near-complete remains of a new species of Jurassic-era dinosaur that stood on its rear legs and had tiny arms, a leading paleontologist said Thursday.
The find belongs to the Abelisaurus family, “the most common carnivorous species in the southern hemisphere during the Cretaceous Period,” some 70 to 100 million years ago, paleontologist Diego Pol told AFP.
“However the fossils that we found are some 170 million years old,” from the earlier Jurassic Period, Pol said.
The creature looks a bit like a scaled-down Tyrannosaurus rex, but with even smaller arms.
The new species, baptized Eoabelisaurus mefi, predates the oldest known member of the Abelisauri lineage by more than 40 million years.
Unlike its descendants, this six-meter (20-foot) long creature creature “has completely reduced arms and tiny claws, which implies that it used only its very sharp teeth to feed itself,” Pol said.
Abelisauri remains have been found only in the southern hemisphere.
Experts believe a great desert in the Earth’s single land mass at the time, Pangea, could have acted as a geographic barrier, preventing the species from spreading north.
The fossils were discovered on Condor Hill, in the southern Patagonian province of Chubut, some 1,800 kilometers (1,120 miles) southwest of Buenos Aires.
A 25-member team from the Edigio Feruglio Museum of Paleontology in Chubut discovered the creature’s cranium and vertebrae during a dig in 2009.
The team was forced to abandon the expedition when winter approached, and returned the next year during the summer, when “we found the animal’s whole articulated skeleton,” Pol said.
Details of the find appear in an article Wednesday in the Proceedings of the Royal Society of London.
Argentina earned fame as a prime site for dinosaur fossil hunters with several discoveries in the 1980s, including the Argentinosaurus Huinculensis, a giant herbivore more than 40 meters (131 feet) long that lived 98 million years ago.
In 1993, scientists in Argentina found the remains of the Giganotosaurus Carolinii, a T-Rex type creature that is the largest carnivorous dinosaur ever found. –Agence France-Presse

Americal Idol – WGWG

Read Full Post »

Phillip Phillips may have won “American Idol” over Jessica Sanchez, but the Mexican/Filipino singer is already in talks to work on her new album with Tommy Mottola.

The former Sony Music Entertainment executive, who now co-owns Casablanca Records in a joint venture with the Universal Music Group, is ready to work Sanchez’s music career.

Mottola’s wife, superstar singer and actress Thalía, announced the news on Twitter.

“WOWgreat news! #TommyMottola just call me from #AmericanIdol & he is confirm to work in the first #JessicaSanchez CD!#MexicanFilipinoPower,” Thalía posted on her account.

Mottola, a veteran producer to music heavy weights such as Mariah Carey, Gloria Estefan and even “American Idol” judge Jennifer Lopez, is sure to help Sanchez launch a successful singing career.

Sanchez put on quite a show on Wednesday night’s “American Idol” finale, as she sang her heart out hitting high notes, leaving the audience speechless.

Sanchez, 16, performed “And I’m telling You I’m Not Going,” alongside Grammy-winning-singer Jennifer Holliday and proved once again why she was in the top two on “American Idol.”

It was certainly a battle of the lungs as both Holliday and Sanchez belted out impressive high notes and Jennifer Lopez jumped to her feet clapping and cheering loudly.

Sanchez also sang the late Whitney Houston’s classic track “I will Always Love You,” sporting a flowy blue gown.

Other Latino moments included the bedazzled performance by Jennifer Lopez with reggaeton rappers Wisin y Yandel, who sang “Follow the Leader.”

Lopez took it back to her urban days bumping and grinding with baggy pants, a tank top and sneakers. She also didn’t shy away from showing off her rock-solid abs.

Wisin Y Yandel landed on stage from flying poles as background dancers bounced around the walls performing impressive acrobatics to the beat.

Sanchez and Phillips took some time to honor their lifelong mentors and then revealed that they were getting brand new cars thanks to Ford.
