‘Biggest Dinosaur Ever’ Unearthed in Argentina

TIME

Move over, Godzilla.

The largest dinosaur ever known to walk the earth has been unearthed in Argentina, and it really is a monster.

Based on its thigh bones, the dinosaur was 130 feet long and 65 feet tall, and at 85 tons, it was the weight of 14 African elephants. Basically, picture a seven-story building as long as a large yacht, and then add a set of teeth.

Scientists believe it is a previously undiscovered species of titanosaur — a herbivore, luckily for other dinosaurs who lived during the Late Cretaceous period.

The remains were discovered in the desert La Flecha about 135 miles west of Patagonia by a local farm worker, and excavated by paleontologists from Museum of Palaeontology Egidio Feruglio. About 150 bones have been found “in remarkable condition,” researchers said.

The huge herbivore lived in the forests of Patagonia between 95 and 100 million years ago, the…

20 More Incorrectly Used Words That Can Make You Look Horrible

TIME


This post is in partnership with Inc., which offers useful advice, resources and insights to entrepreneurs and business owners. The article below was originally published at Inc.com.

My recent post, 30 Incorrectly Used Words That Can Make You Look Horrible, sparked a flurry of emails requesting more examples.

So here they are. While there are hundreds of incorrectly used words, I’ve picked words commonly used in business settings.

Here we go:

1. Anticipate

“We anticipate earnings will increase by $1 per share.”

No you don’t. To anticipate means to look ahead and prepare. So you can anticipate increased sales, but only if you are also making preparations to handle that increase in sales; for example, “We added staffing in anticipation of increased sales.”

If you’re estimating or wishful guessing, use estimate or expect instead. Or, if you live where I live, use “reckon.” It’s good enough for…

Global News

Watch above: Edmonton Transit is hoping to reassure riders after a video of a bizarre attack on the LRT went viral. Fletcher Kent reports.

EDMONTON – A video taken on an Edmonton Transit System (ETS) train appears to show a woman behaving in a bizarre manner and attacking a fellow passenger.

Global News has been unable to verify the reason for the alleged attack.

The video was posted Thursday night from a Facebook account with the name Renee A. Carter.

In the video, a young woman is seen looking through her purse when she starts exhibiting strange and violent behaviour.

She grabs her hair and head before reaching out and grabbing the neck of the male passenger next to her.

It appears the woman then strikes out at the man and yanks on his ponytail before making her way to the train doors.

The video shows the man…

Video About Social Media Ruining Our Lives Goes Viral Thanks to Social Media

TIME

Look Up, a short film about how social media is making people less social by London writer Gary Turk, has been taking the Internet by storm since it was uploaded to YouTube on April 25, racking up more than 13.6 million views.

However, there is something ironic about watching a video about the pitfalls of social networks on a social network, not to mention the fact that a social network is responsible for making this video as popular as it is. If everyone just logged off at the same time, that would probably be more effective.

Mozilla’s crazy plan to fix net neutrality and turn broadband into a utility – and why it could work

Gigaom

Well here’s an interesting twist on the net neutrality debate. Mozilla, the open source foundation behind the Firefox browser, thinks that it has found a legal way to get the Federal Communications Commission to protect network neutrality and to give consumer activists calling for the agency to regulate broadband as a utility what they want.

Mozilla filed a petition with the FCC Monday asking the agency to recognize that, in addition to the relationship between ISP’s and their end customers, there is a separate relationship between the content provider (Amazon, Google, Netflix etc) and the ISP, and that relationship should be classified as transport under Title II of the 1996 Telecommunications Act.

Instead of saying the ISP simply has a duty to deliver all packets over its pipes to the consumer without discrimination, Mozilla claims there is a second legal obligation: a duty the ISP owes to content providers, who expect their packets to…
