"And now onto our dinosaur of the day micro paki syphilis sorace which was a request from neil. Vr patriotic and discord. So thanks so micro paki steph source was a sarah sian that lived in the late cretaceous in what is now shandong province china and was found in the lyon wong formation. Plus sara. Topsy hon on a pack you. Civilised assorted yes. There was some confusion on when it was first named So it looks kind of like satanic a soros. It's small and by pedo an herbivorous and it's depicted in some artists having quills on the backer the tail. It's pretty small so probably had to avoid predators and run away from them. It's estimated to be nineteen point six inches to twenty three point six inches or fifty to sixty centimeters long. While it's tiny. Yeah it is. And the type and only species is micro paki civil service home to unions's and you can guess where the micro part of the name came from. 'cause tiny yes. Although what it makes for tax size it makes up for an long name so i am pretty sure that it is the longest. Dinosaur name is mentioned. There's three letters a wada places. Say that but the articles that i found mentioned it being the longest name are a few years old so it is hard to confirm that it still is twenty. Three letters is almost long enough to have every letter in the alphabet that be interesting. If there was a dinosaur name with every letter to the roman alphabet the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog a source. sure levinson's that has all the letters. now why well done it. As a dinosaur monroe. So the genus name micro paki civil source means tiny thick headed lizard and like garrett was kind of surprised about it was originally thought to be a paki supplus or the ones of the dome heads. Bats wide scott that name the fossil was found in nineteen seventy-two during a study of a stra graphic section in a quiff near lyon train station. And then it was named in nineteen seventy eight by booming dole. The holiday included an incomplete skull. Coddle vertebrae part of the sacred girdle and hind limb. A fragment of the left helium. The upper hippo was also preserved so originally it was described as having a quote parietal. Squaw mozell crest being thickly inflated but relatively flat in anoma and so you know relatively flat head but the top looked inflated and there is no. Conspicuous skull ornamentation interesting. I guess that does sound kinda paki several swordfish and not so syra topsy ish. Yes oh they also described the the mandible as romantically high so at the time that micro paki selfless source was named. There were two types of paki sufferers or skulls dome headed and flat headed and in the same paper that dome named micro paki selfless sores. He also said that. The differences in skulls were not due to sexual die morphism as previously thought but as final genetic characters so somewhat unrelated. But i thought it was interesting because it was in the original paper about micro paki source. That's all dicey starting to talk about sexual die morphism from one individual. No that's the point is that it's not sexual die morphism. Because they used to think that the differences in skulls impact acephalous or were because of sexual diamorphine But even file genetic characters isn't great because it could be onto genetic like grown-up share but it seems like a a step in a different direction. Mr paul cereno. In two thousand considered micro paki civil source to be a gnome. Do william and then in two thousand and six sullivan and others did a texan review of paki several stores and they didn't think that micro paki civil source was a package. So now we're getting into the part of it being sir topsy. And although at the time they didn't say that they just said we don't think it's a pack orbited and say what they thought it was and then in two thousand nine richard butler and she said that micro paki. Syphilis sorace was valid as a genus even though the bones found were fragmentary but it was valid because of these prominent grooves on the surface of its vertebra and they said that micro paki sofa source was an indeterminate. Theropod after not finding anything that linked it with other pecci syphilis sores at the time that they did this. The thickened skull roof was missing. So he couldn't confirm that it existed the part that had been describing original paper. They said that they could not support. Or refute the original paki cephus or classification because the skull roof was missing and then in twenty eleven butler and others did a quick analysis found micro paki several source to be a basal ceratops in so it's only been considered to be ceratops in for a decade catcher out of the. What is it fifty ish years that it's been around. Yeah named the last ten. Yep that's really interesting as sounds like it's not the greatest find so it could go to one do In the future. Maybe maybe or maybe we'll find other fossils in depth along to the same genus Tell us more. Yeah and now as promised the five ways to d- extinct species for fun fact. Okay and i've arranged them from the least likely to result in a d extinct non avian dinosaur to the most likely how deep of an erector dramas borough. Did you go for this. Well i you know. I had my day that i was gonna spend preparing for the show and i spent about eighty percent of working on this fun fact. So yeah oops. But it's just such a deep rabbit hole at. It's not something. I've researched that much about. So i had to go a little bit deep into a lot of the science to make sure because i don't want to spread misinformation and i want to be accurate precise but also summarize it well so yeah and there's some really cool stories because it's there are lots of examples of de extinction events happening which is really interesting so must start with the first one is called iterative evolution or maybe a better name for it. Is elvis tax. Okay that's a reference. To elvis impersonators and in terms of paleontology in lodging. It's really a very precise convergent. Evolution is what it is Okay so they look very similar but they didn't they evolve differently. They evolved at different times or different places. Or yeah exactly so. The typical scenario is if you say a species goes extinct for example the environment changed and a niece disappeared and then later. That niche is available again. A new species evolves to fill that niche that looks nearly identical to the original species interesting. Okay so theoretically this could happen with maybe a more distant ancestor but usually or at least the only cases we know of come from like a pretty close relative one famous example actually happened with a dinosaur A flightless bird specifically called the aldabra rail rails are a type of bird. And d'abre is in the seychelles a couple hundred miles north of madagascar and detail. That's kind of important is that it's a coral atoll so it's a really low elevation island. So what happened is there was this. Flightless algebra rail which presumably evolved from relatives in madagascar. Because they look pretty similar and they lived there until about one hundred thirty six thousand years ago. Interesting when you paleontology within the last million years. You'll be so much more precise about these things because we have so much better evidence so many better fossil's but we can see that around one hundred thirty six thousand years ago. Sea level rose and the island went completely underwater. The aldabra rail went extinct because there was nowhere to go exactly. And it couldn't fly. If you're flightless bird island goes underwater. You're you're done you know. There's maybe you could raft off to somewhere else but you're not gonna make it back to that island very very unlikely and then we see that. Yeah there's a period where there's no you know. It's everything's underwater so it's aquatic stuff and there's no alibaba rail anywhere to be seen. Then eventually sea level dropped and the aldabra rail went through de extinction. Okay but it was something else that evolved to look like it. Yeah they they saw. Here's our chance let's do this. Basically or just what might have happened like we talked about. How birds and up on islands and become flightless a lot times. It's birds can't fly well enough. To regularly migrate. Sorta get blown there or something. And then they actually evolve flightless partly because. It's better to be flightless than to have the ability to fly and try to fly..

"O R Simone on the voice of New York w. Let's go to Dave in Chicago. Dave, yes. Good morning, Mark. I think that going to the movies was basically a dying are a victim of changing times. But a glaring example of Lyon Wong was the avengers endgame and open to three hundred fifty seven million dollars, which means a lot of people saw the movie repeatedly. And they went to the theaters. Well, that's one franchise that's popular, but you had four hundred movies open at bomb too. So there are did make the money that was supposed to make. So who's the avengers at Disney? I can't remember. I mean, obviously going to be big for one company. But it's, you know, that's that's the exception that proves the rule so wouldn't count on that saving the whole industry. It's go to Ralph and Stanford Ralph oh mister Shimon tortillas that listen, I have a a report from local enfor. Horsemen that the Norwalk mall is going to take all the of all the merchants from the Stanford mall, which is going to close down. And while there's a rumor that uconn university, Connecticut going to buy that Stanford mall. Make it into a dormitory. Yeah. Yeah. Dormitory campus. That's gonna be a big change for Stanford. Yeah. Well, let's be honest. How many people go to that mall anymore? Five or six easily everyday. Yeah. The good thing about that Stanford mall used to be you had to go to the fifth level. Maybe a find a parking space craft thing about the malls. You can park right in the front space anytime nobody there. So that's going to happen though. That's Stanford mall. I think soon become yukons buying it for dormitory. Some people think that may a what happens with a lot of these malls Malta gets sold for offices. You know, these companies like Amazon that need to build an enormous head quick just go by huge mall. If you wanna go operate in Westchester, and you're a big tech by the Westchester mall. It's everything you need for an office building. That's where they build these office buildings. These tech companies, you know, like all in a circle with a big opening in the middle like a mall where they have stuff going on down there. The new Howard Stern book is the master of publicity tours, and promoting some do we believe everything in this book. See now, he says the old Howard Stern. We hates that guy that terrible things. He said to people he comes into my stew. He said the most worst moment was Robin Williams. He feels bad now. But those interviews we asked those those really obnoxious questions. He says he feels terrible about it. Now, we believe all this. He said the worst moment was Robin Williams, and he comes into my studio. And what do I do I go? Hey, I I read your having sex with your nanny, you left, your wife or your nanny or something like that. Now, that's clobbering someone over the head. It doesn't lead to discussion. It was insulting to him. But all I cared about was being the man when you walk off the air that day said, I nailed it got it. Yeah. Yeah. I was clueless. No, no, you gotta remember radio. Everything changed. Everything changes all the time. That was the style back then to be confrontational people. Listen for confrontation yelling. Remember, the Morton Downey junior show, even the radio talk radio Bob grant, get up my phone you. But when he'd hang up, and he cursing screen that was that was the style. But they came a period where people didn't want to hear it anymore work anymore and Howard Stern's very savvy smart broadcaster, he knew in that moment came. That's why we switched became kind of a nice guy with really interesting interviews instead of outrageous outrageous, didn't work anymore. The trend ended. I think a lot of people might be shocked. They were such a Hillary Clinton fanny wanted to support Hillary Clinton, even though he's friends with Donald Trump for so many years he was for Hillary Clinton if Hillary could have come in, and maybe persuaded seventy thousand well, that's the thing. The one thing she wouldn't an interview with him. One time. I agree with I don't blame. Because the old Howard Stern. She knew he begged and begged and begged he was supporting a police come to an interview. But he he knew the first question about oral sex about Monica Lewinsky about all kinds of horrible sexual questions. She wouldn't do it. If Hillary could've come in. And maybe persuaded seventy thousand people out of those millions of people that listen and come off in such a way, maybe we'd be looking at a different scenario. I don't know first of all she has no sense of humor. She's a total stiff she wouldn't have been able to handle the deflect any of the stern stuff. Now, he claims Donald Trump wanted him to speak at the Republican convention. I don't know about that. But the turning point in my relationship with Donald was he did ask me to speak at the convention. And I had to say no and tempted at all well since I was a Hillary supporter for a minute. I thought well I'll go up and endorse Hillary. Great moment. No, I wouldn't do that to Donald do. We buy the story. I don't know. This sounds weird that he Hillary Clinton was such a fake phony old fashioned swamp politician, you don't picture Howard Stern supporting our Donald Trump hands down whenever you put them on the air. Now, this is before he was running for president. He was an open book. He would say anything Donald Trump would come on my show. And and this is why he was great. There was no filter. I go Donald Angelina Jolie. She's one of the most beautiful actresses. She's a six, you know, now who says that, you know, most people if they're having that thought keep that pretty garden not Donald I love Howard Stern, but I'm not buying this whole act here. I think he's calculating that. It's better to be anti-trump right now and say that you were for Hillary. He was very close friends with Trump big Trump fan always had Trump on the show. So I think he's calculating now that it would be better if he's anti-trump and that he's more of a democrat commercially right now, that'd be the best thing for his book and his show. So that's why he's going so anti-trump. Are we supposed to believe he was Hillary supporter? I mean think about it. He's a very practical sort of a guy he's very close to Trump got a close relationship when you want your close friend to be president instead of the woman who won't even take your phone call would you want as president? If your him know, hey, when we come back, a great comedian, Mike Marino will be with us. Very funny guy. We'll get to that next. On seven ten w let's get all the latest news.
