Not in ‘Jurassic World.’ A new dinosaur has just been found in Scotland. Latest news!

A team of paleontologists from the University of Edinburgh has found a new species of ichthyosaur who lived on the island of Skye 140 million years ago.

He looked like a dolphin and ate fish and other reptiles.

It has been called Dearcmhara Shawcross in honor of the Gaelic word for marine reptiles and of a person who donated some fossils of this species.

Lead researcher Dr Steve Brusatte, from the University of Edinburgh’s School of Geosciences, said: ‘During the time of dinosaurs, the waters of Scotland were prowled by big reptiles the size of motor boats.’

** Ichthyosaurs resembled both current fish and dolphins. Their heads were pointed. Their limbs had been transformed into flippers, and some species possessed a dorsal fin. Some species had larger bladed teeth to attack large animals. The eyes were very large, probably for deep diving. The neck was short and later species had a rather stiff trunk.

** Remember that ‘Jurassic World’ is an action, adventure, sci-fi movie scheduled to be released on June 12, 2015.

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
