Florida State University’s Dr. Gregory Erickson working with a team of scientists from the University of Calgary and the American Museum of Natural History recently released a surprising discovery they made after examining fossilized dinosaur embryos. By determining the age of the embryos upon measuring embryonic teeth rings (which are similar to measuring tree rings to find… Continue reading Scientists shocked to find dinosaur egg incubation like reptiles, not birds
In a vote that has liberals up in arms, the Texas Board of Education made up of 10 Republicans and 5 Democrats has voted to keep a high school biology curriculum that allows the questioning of the theory of evolution.The vote taken on Wednesday, February 1, is on a preliminary curriculum so a final vote… Continue reading Texas Board of Education votes to keep curriculum questioning evolution
In 2014, a hacker made news when he was able to use electronic images of Germany’s Defense Minister to recreate a thumbprint and accurate retinal image that could be used to hack biometric authentication.
