  • A surprise find: 99-million-year-old frog encased in amber

    At first glance, the oddly shaped splotches darkening a vibrant yellow piece of amber appear to be amorphous blobs. But upon closer examination, a shape emerges. There are two forelimbs. At the end of each limb are four smaller bones, forming a distinctly handlike shape. Within the largest dark spot, which has a rounded top, eye sockets become distinguishable. It’s a skull. Encased within the smooth chunk of amber is the body of a tiny young tropical frog. Scientists say the diminutive critter, measuring less than an inch long, lived about 99 million years ago before it became entombed in...

    A frog uses its whip-like tongue to snag its prey faster than a human can blink, hitting it with a force five times greater than gravity. That’s according to researchers, who filmed frogs eating crickets in super-slow motion to help understand the physics of the tongue. They said that the frog’s tongue – which is 10 times softer than a human’s – stretches and stores energy much like a spring.
  • Miss Piggy and Kermit of the Muppets split ahead of new show

    LOS ANGELES: Yet another Hollywood power couple bit the dust on Tuesday as Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog announced their separation, conveniently setting a new dynamic for the upcoming The Muppets television show. In a joint statement posted online, the glamorous and fame-obsessed Miss Piggy and upbeat, affable amphibian Kermit said they will not be involved romantically, but will continue working together on television and other projects. “After careful thought, thoughtful consideration and considerable squabbling, Kermit the Frog and moi have made the difficult decision to terminate our romantic relationship,” Miss Piggy said on her Facebook page. She added...

  • Dennis Kucinich concedes defeat to Marcy Kaptur in Ohio Democratic primary

    Rep. Dennis Kucinich, a liberal establishment in the House, conceded defeat Tuesday night in Ohio's 9th district Democratic primary to longtime Rep. Marcy Kaptur. The Democratic primary was overshadowed Tuesday night by the competitive contest in Ohio's Republican presidential primary between Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum. The Democratic contest, however, was also hard-fought. Kucinich made his concession speech just past midnight Wednesday, when Kaptur had a 24-point lead with 84 percent of precincts reporting, according to the Associated Press.
  • Abortion Doctor Facing Murder Chargers After Killing 7 Babies with Scissors

    There is little doubt that America has become a culture of death. Two of the most dangerous places to be are so-called women’s clinics and nursing homes. We do not value life that is not at its prime. So maybe we shouldn’t be surprised that a doctor was killing babies with scissors. Maybe we should be surprised he’s actually been arrested for it. On Wednesday an abortion doctor in West Philadelphia was charged with eight counts of murder in the deaths of a patient and seven babies who were born alive and then killed with scissors. Dr. Kermit Gosnell has...

    Electric cars and green technology dominate at this year's Geneva Motor Show, which opened its doors on Tuesday, but no one expected a hybrid Ferrari. This Kermit-green Ferrari 599 hybrid is one of the stars of the show and a sure sign that even supercar makers are beginning to address their environmental impact. Called HY-KERS, the hybrid two-seater uses Ferrari's Formula One Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) to recover the braking and decelerating energy in a state-of-the-art lithium-ion battery. That electrical energy is converted into about 650 volts, which gives an additional 100 horsepower that is used to supplement the...

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Forget the movie, Cecilia Bartoli says. Antonio Salieri isn't the bad guy who poisoned Mozart. He's an underappreciated genius who paved the path for Beethoven. Following hit recordings of works by Vivaldi and Gluck, Bartoli is touring the United States to support her latest project, "The Salieri Album," which contains 13 arias from the seldom-heard composer. Some of the pieces were so obscure that they had to be found in a Vienna library -- only two of the arias had ever been recorded.

    An animated clip of Kermit the Frog rolling a cannabis joint is being circulated by email in Chile. The clip shows Kermit teaching new cannabis users how to roll a joint, reports Las Ultimas Noticias online. The email is believed to have been created as a joke but advertiser Paula Rojas says it could damage the image of the children's character. She said: "I have seen many characters being used in a improper way but it is the first time I've seen a children's character being used to promote drugs. "That is serious.

    Cannabis poses a greater threat to health than tobacco, lung experts have warned. The warning comes on the day that Home Secretary David Blunkett is due to make a Commons statement about the future of government drug policy. Many young people are simply not aware that smoking cannabis may put them at increased risk of respiratory cancers and infections . Dame Helena Shovelton: The Home Affairs Select Committee has recommended that cannabis is downgraded from a class B drug to class C. This would mean that possession would lead to a caution, rather than arrest. The British Lung Foundation is...
