YouTube Copyright Basics (Global)…. actually it is Google’s policy, going so far as to deny the owner recopying! your own work!

but still: the denial of any other video format, except for the ever-so-slow and cumbersome flash (I would say down the toilet) is retardingly slow, no matter what the ISP speed is!  But again is very protective of the profits, google (uyoutube) make from denying even owner (creators) of the work to download their own youtube published videos, and comment: So tell me : WHO”S THE OWNER OF YOUR WORK NOW,  HA? Cause it sure isn’t  you!

Dinosaurs “Tepid-Blooded”? The media’s concern with never to be proven marginal theories is…something else!)


Dinosaurs “Tepid-Blooded”?

Researchers have long debated whether dinosaurs were warm-blooded or cold-blooded creatures, but the answer, it turns out, may be neither. A new study suggests that dinosaurs fall into some in-between category, which the authors have termed “mesothermic.” They came to this conclusion after analyzing the growth rings on the bones of 381 species, of which 21 were dinosaurs, and correlating this data with metabolic rates, which are an indicator of endothermy or ectothermy. What they found was that dinosaurs, along with a handful of living species, have metabolic rates that do not fit neatly into either category but instead lie somewhere between the two. More… Discuss
