A handful of states, including Texas and Nevada, have set up dedicated systems designed to restore tenants to their homes after an illegal lockout. She and her family still don't have a new apartment, she said, and the eviction cases on her record don't help. BI reviewed two years' worth of lockout cases from the department and found city lawyers routinely dismissed tickets, often without documenting why. Bridget Bennett for Business InsiderThat afternoon, Brown had three cases on his docket in which tenants were alleging they'd been illegally locked out and dozens of cases in which landlords were seeking formal evictions. In 2022, Miami-Dade County passed a tenant's bill of rights that underlines the illegality of lockouts and limits a landlord's ability to harass tenants.

Creatures living in the far south have been harder to pin down, and less is known about the animals that lived closer to the poles. It thrived as a top predator 40 million years before dinosaurs evolved to roam the Earth, according to the study. “It’s really, really surprising that Gaiasia is so archaic. In addition to seeking more fossil examples of the species, the researchers are also curious to find other animals that lived in this far south ecosystem. “It tells us that what was happening in the far south was very different from what was happening at the equator.

CNN —Scientists have discovered a 246 million-year-old marine reptile fossil, the oldest of its kind to be found in the Southern Hemisphere, shining a new light on the early evolution of marine mammals. Sauropterygians were ancient aquatic reptiles that existed for around 180 million years during the Mesozoic era, 251 to 66 million years ago. However, their early evolution had only been known from fossils found in the Northern Hemisphere, according to the study published in the journal Current Biology Monday. Many fossils are being found all the time, and this material was deposited in New Zealand’s National Paleontological Collection, Kear said. The study suggests these ancient marine reptiles were going around Earth’s poles, swimming all the way around the supercontinent as a continuous coastal highway, Kear said.

The State Department said Russia’s arrest of journalist and dual Russian-U.S. citizen Alsu Kurmasheva appears to be another case of harassment of an American. Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich was detained in March. Photo: pangea graphics (rfe/rl)/ReutersA Russian court formally arrested a U.S. journalist for Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty in a case that is exacerbating tensions between Washington and Moscow, ordering her to be held in pretrial detention on an allegation she had failed to register herself as a “foreign agent.”A representative of the Sovetsky District Court in Kazan, a city in southwest Russia, said Alsu Kurmasheva, who holds both U.S. and Russian citizenship, would be held until at least Dec. 5.

Grade Inflation Needs to Stop - The New York Times
  + stars: | 2023-10-23 | by ( Tim Donahue | )   time to read: +3 min
While I may fret over the ambiguity on Page 5 of a student’s essay, I’m aware of the greater machine. Grade inflation, after all, acts just like real inflation. In the shape-shifting landscape of college admissions, grades have never been more important. And a recommendation letter coming from someone who teaches 150 students is going to look different than from someone who teaches 50. As a high school teacher, I don’t want to hold that much power, nor do I think I should.

Alsu Kurmasheva, an editor with Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty's (RFE/RL) Tatar-Bashkir Service, poses in this undated handout photo. Alsu Kurmasheva, an editor with Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty’s Tatar-Bashkir Service who holds both U.S. and Russian passports, travelled to Russia on May 20 for a family emergency. Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, which has headquarters in Prague and Washington, says its mission is to "promote democratic values by providing accurate, uncensored news and open debate in countries where a free press is threatened and disinformation is pervasive". During the Cold War, RFE/RL transmitted news to audiences behind the Iron Curtain. "Journalism is not a crime and Kurmasheva’s detention is yet more proof that Russia is determined to stifle independent reporting."

CNN —The formation of a new “supercontinent” could wipe out humans and all other mammals still alive in 250 million years, researchers have predicted. They found it would be extremely hot, dry and virtually uninhabitable for humans and mammals, who are not evolved to cope with prolonged exposure to excessive heat. Humans – along with many other species – would expire due to their inability to shed this heat through sweat, cooling their bodies,” Farnsworth added. This grim outlook is no excuse for complacency when it comes to tackling today’s climate crisis, the report authors warned. “While we are predicting an uninhabitable planet in 250 million years, today we are already experiencing extreme heat that is detrimental to human health.

In 2021, geologists animated a video that shows how Earth's tectonic plates moved over the last billion years. But in 2021 a group of geologists offered up an easily digestible peek at 1 billion years of plate tectonic motion. Building a better model of Earth's platesThe Earth's plates move in a variety of ways and can cause earthquakes, mountains, and canyons. The top layer — between 5 and 50 miles thick — is the crust, which is fragmented into tectonic plates that fit together. The jigsaw puzzle of Earth's continents hasn't stopped shifting, of course.

Scientists have uncovered traces of what they think could be the world's largest asteroid impact. The impact might have occurred 450 million years ago, wiping out 85 percent of Earth's species, one said. The structure, the scientists say, could be the remnants of an enormous asteroid impact that hit the Earth hundreds of millions of years ago. If confirmed, it would be the largest asteroid impact on record. The memory of the impact is hidden in the groundOne would think finding the world's largest asteroid impact should be fairly easy.

DAKAR, Senegal - June 2, 2023: Supporters of jailed opposition leader Ousmane Sonko protest in the Senegalese capital following his two-year sentencing for "corrupting the youth." The criminal conviction of a populist opposition leader in Senegal has triggered widespread unrest that threatens the West African country's long-established political stability. "The African Union and ECOWAS should use their influence to press Senegalese authorities to end their repression of protests and critics." The underlying roots of the unrest are both political and socio-economic, according to analysts at African specialist intelligence company Pangea-Risk. Consumer price inflation has slowed since late 2022, but hovers at around 9%, with food prices up more than 11% year-on-year.

Facts about sharks that may surprise you
  + stars: | 2022-07-26 | by ( Rachel Fadem | )   time to read: +5 min
However, humans are a larger threat to sharks than sharks are to us. Sharks may be helpful for our environmentTiger sharks, one of Australia’s primary predators, may help ecosystems respond to extreme climate events. “It seems like it’s more than just tiger sharks,” Heithaus said. Some sharks, like mako sharks and bull sharks, give live birth, while other sharks, like cat sharks, lay eggs, said Jasmin Graham, president and CEO of Minorities in Shark Sciences, based in Bradenton, Florida. With this finely attuned sense, sharks hunt sick and weak animals, playing a crucial role in keeping the marine ecosystem healthy.

Un număr record de false farmacii online au fost închise în luna mai ca urmare a unei eradicări globale. Operațiunea Pangea efectuată de Interpol a eliminat de pe piețe 100.000 de comercianți online care vindeau medicamente ilicite, informează BBC, citează Numai în Regatul Unit au fost confiscate produse medicale în valoare de 13 milioane de dolari. A fost cea mai mare operațiune de după 2008, acum împotriva infractorilor care făceau mulți bani proftând de cererea de produse anti-Covid. Întrucât pandemia a forțat tot mai mulți oameni să-și mute viețile online, infractorii au fost prompți în țintirea acestor noi clienți.
