Diplodocus ancestor ran on its back legs grasped food in its forelimbs

An early ancestor of the iconic, plodding, long-necked dinosaur diplodocus ran on its two back legs and used its forelimbs to grasp food 205 million years ago. This is the conclusion of University of Bristol researchers who reconstructed the limb muscles of Thecodontosaurus, a small dinosaur that lived in the UK in the Triassic.

HealthWatch: Chandler’s Limb Lengthening Journey – Short in Stature, Tall in Courage

DETROIT, MI. (Ivanhoe Newswire)– Achondroplasia, is the most common genetic form of dwarfism, affecting one in 20 thousand people. Right now, there’s no cure, but some patients may opt for surgery to lengthen their arms and legs. Ivanhoe has more on a young woman who has become a champion for others who are short in stature, in the hopes they’ll feel comfortable weighing all their options.

Can extra energy induce animals to regrow limbs?

The ability of animals to replace damaged or lost tissue (or ‘regenerate’) is a sliding scale, with some animals able to regenerate whole limbs, while others can only scar. But why some animals can regenerate while others have more limited capabilities has puzzled the scientific community for many years. The likes of Charles Darwin and August Weismann suggested regeneration only evolves in a particular organ. In contrast, Thomas Morgan suggested that all animals are equipped with the tools to regenerate but differ in whether they are able to activate these processes. If the latter were true, it could be possible to ‘switch on’ regeneration.

Replacing limbs with droid body parts: The science behind 'The Book of Boba Fett'

Living in a galaxy far, far away isn't always easy. You've got crime syndicates, massive alien predators, and ever-shifting political machinations to navigate. Sure, there might be biological magic and laser-sword wielding space wizards, but none of that is your affair. You're just trying to scrape out a living on the planet the center of the galaxy is farthest from.

Lawsuit: Woman dies after being struck by falling tree limb on Allegheny County hiking trial

PITTSBURGH — The estate of a woman who was killed by a falling tree limb while on a hiking trail in the Township of Upper St. Clair is claiming wrongful death. William G. Laird, administrator of the Estate of Kara Ann Leo, filed a complaint Dec. 1 in the Court of Common Pleas for Allegheny County against Township of Upper St. Clair alleging negligence and wrongful death.

Fingerprint Patterns Linked to Limb Development Genes

In the most comprehensive analysis to date, researchers found that the shapes of fingerprints—whether they are circular, wavy, or winding—are influenced by the genes responsible for limb development instead of skin patterning. The study, published in Cell, could help scientists better understand the association between genes and phenotypical traits in humans.

Eruption of EUV Hot-Channel near Solar Limb and Associated Moving Type-IV Radio Burst

Using the observations from Solar Dynamics Observatory, we study an eruption of a hot-channel flux rope (FR) near the solar-limb on February 9, 2015. The pre-eruptive structure is visible mainly in EUV 131 $\mathring{\mathrm{A}}$ images with two highly-sheared loop structures. They undergo slow rise motion and then reconnect to form an eruptive hot-channel as in the tether-cutting reconnection model. The J-shaped flare-ribbons trace the footpoint of the FR which is identified as the hot-channel. Initially, the hot channel is observed to rise slowly at 40 km s$^{-1}$, followed by an exponential rise from 22:55 UT at a coronal height of 87$\pm$2 Mm. Following the onset of the eruption at 23:00 UT, the flare-reconnection adds to the acceleration process of the CME within 3 R$_\odot$. Later on, the CME continues to accelerate at 8 m s$^{-2}$ during its propagation period. Further, the eruption launched type-II followed by III, IVm radio bursts. The start and end times of type-IVm correspond to the CME core height of 1.5 and 6.1 R$_\odot$, respectively. Also the spectral index is negative suggesting the non-thermal electrons trapped in the closed loop structure. Accompanied with type-IVm, this event is unique in the sense that the flare ribbons are very clearly observed along with the erupting hot channel, which strongly supports that the hooked-part of J-shaped flare ribbons outlines the boundary of the erupting FR.

New technology can help people who need prosthetic limbs

CINCINNATI (WKRC) – Researchers at The Ohio State University have come up with a new snap-on technology that can help some people walk again, as well as other activities. The team is now assisting those without limbs in a whole new way, by performing a new procedure that works with a different kind of artificial limb.
