    The Flintstones, a cartoon about life in the Stone Age, has just surpassed The Jetsons, a cartoon about life in the distant future, when it comes to technological innovation. Researchers have successfully trained artificial intelligence to generate new clips of the prehistoric animated series based on nothing but random text descriptions of what’s happening in a scene. A team of researchers from the Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence, and the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, trained an AI by feeding it over 25,000 three-second clips of the cartoon, which hasn’t seen any new episodes in over 50 years. Most AI experiments...

    Faced with the sweeping backyard of her newly purchased $2.8 million home, Florence Fang considered her landscaping options. Should she plant some dainty cherry trees or perhaps a picturesque vineyard? Then inspiration struck: She needed a herd of 15-foot-tall dinosaurs. This wasn’t just any multi-million-dollar Hillsborough home — it was the “Flintstone House,” the iconic orange and purple domes that have become a loved (and hated) Bay Area landmark along the northbound commute up Interstate 280. Cherry blossoms weren’t going to cut it. The prehistoric critters are among the first new signs of life at the home that languished on...

    Dinosaur and Mammal Tracks Found Together February 1, 2018 | David F. Coppedge In what is being called the mother lode of Cretaceous tracks, mammals, dinosaurs and pterosaurs left their prints in a table-sized rock. Of all places: at Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, a property representing the cutting edge of human technology, dinosaurs left their mark. Ray Stanford was dropping off his wife at work when he noticed an unusual rock outcrop. As an amateur paleontologist, he looked and saw a dinosaur track, so he began digging. Soon he had an 8′ x 3′ slab of rock that...

    The estate of the late, great Dick Clark has just price-chopped his beloved Malibu hideaway by $250,000, bringing the price down from $3.25 million to $2,995,000. After two years on the Malibu housing market, this Flintstone-esque home atop a bluff got a price cut for the second time, as first reported by Curbed. It came down $250,000 in the summer of 2013, and without a buyer in sight, the price has been reduced by a quarter million dollars once again. One of Malibu’s landmark properties, Clark’s stone home features unparalleled 360 degree views of the Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands, Boney...
  • Justice Kagan: U.S. Supreme Court Justices "are like, 'What's Facebook?'"

    U.S. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan has revealed the technological blind spots of the land’s highest court, which —she joked Thursday in Lexington — extends to the intricacies of social media. Speaking at the UK Singletary Center, Kagan told UK College of Law Dean David A. Brennen that the court is “conservative” when it comes to adopting technology, even as questions about those technologies reach the court. “It’s a real challenge to learn enough about all these new-fangled things that one didn’t grow up with oneself to make good and wise decisions to help in the way a court ought...

    Dinosaur herd buried in Noah’s Flood in Inner Mongolia, China by Tas Walker Published: 14 April 2009 An international team of scientists have uncovered graphic evidence of the deadly terror unleashed on a herd of dinosaurs as they were buried under sediment by the rising waters of Noah’s Flood in western Inner Mongolia (figure 1).[1] Dinosaur bones were first discovered at the site, located at the base of a small hill in the Gobi Desert, in 1978 by a Chinese geologist. After about 20 years, a team of Chinese and Japanese scientists recovered the first skeletons, which they named Sinornithomimus,...

    No more love for Lucy? Ryan Jaroncyk For over the last 30 years, the supposedly 3 . 2 Ma old Australopithecus afarensis specimen known as ‘Lucy’ has been boldly proclaimed as the ancestor of all humanity in magazines, television shows, books, newspapers and museums. However, Tel Aviv University anthropologists have published a study casting serious doubt on Lucy’s role as mankind’s ape ancestor.1 Based on a comparative analysis of jaw bones in living and extinct primates, researchers concluded that Lucy and members of her kind should be ‘placed as the beginning of the branch that evolved in parallel to ours.’...

    Dinosaurs in American Indian Petroglyphs Evolution, and the Redneck Watermelon Truck The story goes that two old boys named Luke and Ray-Bob had themselves a truck and were buying watermelons in Fla. and Ga. for $2 and trucking them to Chicago and Detroit and selling them for $2. After awhile, they noticed that they were not making any money; naturally enough, they had a big business meeting and came to the conclusion that they needed a bigger truck. Evolutionists, of course, are using time in precisely the same manner in which the two rednecks are using truck size, and there...
