478-Million-Year-Old Spiky Slug Solves Long-Held Mollusk Mystery
Yahoo News - about 1 year
The specimens — seven in all — were discovered in the late 2000s by Mohamed 'Ou Said' Ben Moula, a self-taught fossil collector who has uncovered hundreds, if not thousands, of specimens with fossilized soft tissues in Morocco's Fezouata Biota. Ben Moula has a working relationship with paleontologists at Yale University, and shipped the fossils to Yale, in Connecticut, so they could be studied. "I describe them as an armored, spiny slug with one single shell at the head end," said the study's co-lead researcher, Luke Parry, a doctoral student in the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Bristol in England.

The key to any good adaptation is to be different, to give it something the audience hasn't seen before, to be unique. But at the same time, it must stay true to the heart of the original property. When I first heard that The CW was going to be airing a television series based on the Archie Comic books called Riverdale my first thought was "Why?"

The answer is... perfectly. Produced by Greg Berlanti (Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow eat), Riverdale is a dark and dramatic take on the wholesomeness that the "town with pep" is known for and it's ico...
