Late Jurassic inoceramid bivalves from the Antarctic Peninsula and their stratigraphic use

first_imgThe majority of inoceramid bivalves occurring in Late Jurassic temperate realm assemblages can probably be assigned to the genus Retroceramus. Although there are a few transitional forms, Retroceramus can generally be distinguished from the better-known genus Inoceramus by features of both the external and internal shell morphology. The replacement of Retroceramus by Inoceramus in the Early Cretaceous may reflect the adoption of an epibyssate mode of life, and probably represents one of a series of endo- to epibyssate life habit transitions that occurred during the evolutionary history of the Inoceramidae.Four common Late Jurassic species of Retroceramus form the basis of an inoceramid zonation that can be used for local correlations within western Antarctica, and regional correlations throughout the Southern Hemisphere. Isolated exposures in the Antarctic Peninsula can be correlated with the Fossil Bluff Formation (Kimmeridgian-Albian) of eastern Alexander Island, and it should eventually be possible to correlate the latter unit with the extensive Jurassic Latady Formation (?Bajocian-Tithonian) of the Lassiter and Orville coasts. Used in conjunction with existing cephalopod biozones, this zonation scheme indicates that the lower levels of the Fossil Bluff Formation correlate with the Lower, Middle, and Upper Spiti Shales of the Himalayas and both the Ohauan and Puaroan stages of the New Zealand Jurassic. Tentative correlations can also be made with areas such as South America, New Caledonia, Indonesia, and Western Australia.The occurrence of genera such as Retroceramus, Anopaea, and Buchia in western Antarctica does not necessarily indicate the existence of a late Jurassic anti-Boreal faunal realm. Available evidence suggests that the distribution of benthic faunas at this time was probably controlled by a series of distinctive sedimentary facies which extended around much of the southern margins of Gondwana, rather than by pronounced climatic zonation.last_img read more

Nokia 6.2 key specifications and price leaked, may launch in August

first_imgA few days ago, reports surfaced that HMD Global is planning to launch the Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2 in some markets including India in August or September. The reports, however, did not shed any light on the specs or design of these upcoming Nokia phones. A fresh report has now provided some information about the Nokia 6.2 including key specifications and possible pricing.Chinese publication ITHome has reported that the Nokia 6.1 and Nokia 7.1 successors, which are likely to be called Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2, will be made official in China soon. Based on the latest report, the Nokia 6.2 will be a smaller version of the Nokia X71 that was launched in Taiwan earlier this year. This means that Nokia 6.2 will sport a punch-hole display with a FHD+ resolution like the Nokia X71.If the Nokia 6.2 turns out to be an exact version of the Nokia X71, you can also expect the upcoming Nokia phone to be powered by a Snapdragon 660 chipset with up to 6GB of RAM. The report adds that the Nokia 6.2 could offer a vertical triple camera setup with Zeiss lenses. The camera system may include a 20MP primary sensor, 8MP ultra wide-angle camera and 5MP depth sensor. The Nokia X71, however, offers a 48MP triple camera setup.The Nokia 6.2 is also said to come with a 3,300mAh battery and stock Android Pie as part of Android One program. The report further speculates that the Nokia 6.2 4GB RAM variant will cost CNY 1,199 (approx Rs 12,000) while the 6GB RAM variant will cost CNY 1,499 (approx Rs 15,000).advertisementFor now, one should take this leak with a pinch of salt. We should also hear something on the Nokia 7.2 as we get closer and closer to their rumoured launch.ALSO READ | Nokia 6.2, Nokia 7.2 India launch tipped, may come in August with 48MP cameraslast_img read more

WATCH: Chuba Hubbard Hurdles Two Defenders in Blowout Win

first_imgThe fastest recruit on Oklahoma State’s commitment list is without a doubt Chuba Hubbard. As a canadian sprinter, Hubbard has been clocked at a 10.55 100m sprint, placing him fourth overall at the 2015 IAAF World Youth Championships in Cali, Colombia, last July.But as the No. 1 recruit in Canada, he’s a heady enough runner to not only put his speed to use but also his Chris Carson-esque hops. Check out the guts to go up over two defenders before being dragged down:Hubbard and Bev Facey went on to win 55-0, and it’s nice to see as a runner that Hubbard is developing some tools in his arsenal his senior year. There’s a pretty good chance he’ll see the field as a true freshman at OSU. While you’re here, we’d like you to consider subscribing to Pistols Firing and becoming a PFB+ member.

Our Favorite Plays From Saturday’s Win Over Texas Tech

first_imgWe had some fun with this post last week as we looked at some of the most memorable plays from Saturday’s game. Oklahoma State posted the game highlights, but these were individual (and maybe more under the radar) moments that stood out to us.Blake Jarwin (again)This is becoming a weekly occurrence. Jarwin has at least one catch in nine of 10 games this season and exactly one in three of the last four. Almost all of them look exactly like this one.Lil Sho TDThis was just a disgusting pitch and catch. Remember when people were calling Rudolph “average” earlier this year. Yeah, LOL.McCleskey’s fumble I know this ended poorly, but man I really loved the formation and setup. Would love to see this more with No. 1.Justice For allHe’s just a complete freak. And that downfield block from Lacy was paramount.Dimes on dimes on dimesA big balls throw from No. 2 over the middle here. He loves that spot as well as the sideline comeback. It’s a joy to watch.Justin Phillips sackPhillips had 14 tackles including this takedown of Mahomes in the fourth quarter. He was awesome with Chad Whitener out.PeaceCould watch forever.

Justice Hill Set to Win NCAA Freshman Rushing Title

first_imgAbout a month ago we looked at the possibility of OSU running back Justice Hill ending the season as atop the list of freshman rushers.Well, thanks to Clemson’s domination of Ohio State (and Buckeye redshirt freshman Mike Weber’s lowest output of the season of 24 yards), it looks like that possibility will be realized.Hill’s 1,142 yards are most among FBS freshmen. The only freshman with a chance to catch him is Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts (891 yards), and it’s not really a chance. Hurts would need 251 yards against Clemson in the national championship game.So, since that’s not happening, I’ll go ahead and congratulate Justice for another badge of honor in an impressive (and record-setting) rookie campaign.Here are the top rushing freshmen for 2016-17.1. Justice Hill (Oklahoma State) – 1,142 yards / 5.5 yards per carry / 6 touchdowns2. Mike Weber (Ohio State) – 1,096 yards / 6 yards per carry / 9 touchdowns3. Benjamin Snell, Jr. (Kentucky) – 1,091  yards / 5.9 yards per carry / 13 touchdowns4. Damarea Crockett (Missouri) – 1,062 yards / 6.9 yards per carry / 10 touchdowns5.

10 months agoWatford players ease talk of Europe

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Watford players ease talk of Europeby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveWatford’s players aren’t getting carried away with their lofty table position.The Hornets’ return to form and a victory at West Ham that lifted Javi Gracia’s men briefly up to sixth made Europe one of the post-match buzzwords again. Watford defender Craig Cathcart said: “Since I’ve come to the club it’s been an uphill scale. We got promoted in the first year and we’ve managed to stabilise ourselves in the Premier League.“We’ve added top-quality players since we’ve been here and it’s just a pleasure to play for the club. Things are going really well.“But we can’t rest on our laurels too much. We need to take each game as it comes because we have a game against Chelsea in a couple of days. We have an experienced squad who have been in England quite a while now. We know we can’t look too far ahead.“Things can change very quick. If you’re not 100 per cent every game then you won’t pick up points. We’ve definitely learned from that the last few seasons.”Troy Deeney also said: “I let everybody else do the ambitions. We know what we have got in the dressing room.”We are not a bad outfit. But we’ve got to keep doing what we’re doing, be a bit arrogant in terms of knowing what we have got, but humble enough to know you have to work hard to win in this league.” last_img read more
