The eagle soars high in a cloudless blue sky. Earlier this week, Darren Naish from Tetrapod Zoology posted “When eagles go bad, all over again,” a delightful and informative piece about how eagles are vicious and predatory creatures that kill large mammals—even humans occasionally (according to eyewitnesses). I think they are adorable despite.
Some Environment posts we really dug this week were:
Humanities & Social Science. This model illustrates certain creationist beliefs that human beings and dinosaurs co-existed. From Flickr, by williac
I came across this photo simply by typing “Creationism” into the flickr search engine. If the belief that humans existed along-side dinosaurs at one point were true, dinosaurs such as the triceratops would have likely worn saddles as is demonstrated by the model in this picture. Currently, no radiocarbon dating methods or archaeological digs have uncovered man-made saddles from the same time periods in which dinosaurs lived.
Some good ones from the Humanities and Social Sciences channel:
Education and Careers. From Flickr, by TheAlieness GiselaGiardinoÂ²Â³
This image displays a pen laid delicately across graph paper as if indicating the direction of a vector, or perhaps it was set aside haphazardly after the owner of the pen discovered how fast the train was traveling in order for it to have reached Chicago in 2.5 hours. Solving vector equations is one of the most important concepts to master in introductory physics.
And lastly, a few from the Education and Careers blog realm
That’s all, folks. Check back for more channel updates soon!
