PhysOrg shows a picture of a fossil shrimp found in Oklahoma next to a live shrimp. They look identical, yet the article claims the fossil is 360 million years old – the oldest known decapod (a group containing shrimp, crabs, and lobsters). The fossil shrimp even has fine preservation of the muscles of its tail, “extremely rare in fossils.” The article claims it was preserved so well because it landed on the seafloor in acidic water with low oxygen, and then was “buried rapidly.” As to what this find signifies, “The fossil is a very important step in unraveling the evolution of decapods,” one of the scientists from Kent State said. “However, more finds are necessary.”Calling this complex animal an “important step in unraveling the evolution of decapods” is like finding a complete building, with pipes, electricity, structural steel, and all the interior and exterior furnishings, and calling it an important step in unraveling the evolution of buildings, then claiming that more finds are necessary to unravel the complete story. What’s unraveling here is the evolutionary story itself.(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday submitted progress report to the Bombay High Court on the probe of Adarsh Housing Society case, involving 14 accused, including former Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan.Additional Solicitor General Darius Khambata handed the report, in a sealed cover, to the division bench of Justices Ranjana Desai and R V More. The bench asked CBI to file a further report after four weeks.The matter has now been posted for hearing on July 20. CBI had earlier informed the Court that it had registered case against 14 persons, following which the court had asked the petitioner, Simpreet Singh, to forward his complaint and whatever documents he had, to the agency.Singh, a social activist, had originally sought transfer of case from state Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) to the CBI.Later, on its own, the state government decided to hand the case over the central agency.On the last occasion, Singh’s lawyer had said that High Court must supervise the probe, alleging that even Union Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde was involved in the scam, but his name does not figure in CBI’s FIR.However, the court felt it was investigating agency’s prerogative as to whom to name in the FIR.CBI filed the FIR on January 29 under various sections of IPC, including criminal conspiracy, cheating, and forgery, besides sections under Prevention of Corruption Act.- With PTI inputsFor more News, click here.For more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.advertisement
