"Expectation for the Steelers he expected the Steelers to be great they would win and win championships but he wanted the Steelers to be great in all things in the community in their engagement with the outside world in their thinking he wanted people who work for the Steelers to think broadly to read and learn about things that were on common and well done and then to bring greatness to every effort in their daily lives and work in general is on our disk Institute of Pittsburgh Newsline Jim welcome to KDKA again we appreciate your time on a Saturday evening thank you Larry great to be with you always always love the chance to speak with you well I think your book after your father passed to three years ago in April it's hard to believe and I know your your mom Patricia is such a wonderful woman and has been dealt some difficult circumstances in the last few years in particular losing a sister and I know that our thoughts that many times have gone back to your to your dad I think so many people would wonder what would a basket a Rooney say about whatever situations have developed since he passed in in in your book I really think Jim you've captured the Rooney rule as you're acutely aware has come up recently in the National Football League it's become in the end before all of the civil unrest in the talk about diversity and what we can do to raise up our brothers your dad was doing this far a long ago before anybody else in the National Football League and and I think your book suddenly has become even more poignant do you feel that way with the diversity that people are reaching out for now well well you know I I I guess what what I think about when I think about you where we're at right now is is certainly you know you are I having this conversation that critics it's two white men yeah I'm talking about social justice talking about inequity in that that you know we're all talking about listening and learning but I've listened and learned I've talked to several friends from the black community and other minority communities over the last couple weeks and I said look it is important that you know folks who look like you and me are open and honest and and are awkward and and you know get into space but it's difficult and the reason I say that is that when I saw my father doing over and over again was given the conversation that he knew weren't going to be comfortable and and be willing to you know deal with that uncomfortable there but always try to go listen to someone else always try to ask you a different perspective don't try to lend a hand or eye and ear of compassion and then and then yeah we talk about whether the review or stop in Ireland you try to work on a solution and I think in in in a couple cases he made some some pretty significant contributions but why is that idea of listening very actively yeah very conscientiously and through that that discomfort and I think as a diplomat as ambassador perfect role I thought for your father certainly under the circumstances in Ireland and we'll get to that but back to putting people in a position that nobody else in the league did he did that on several really important occasions in if you go back to bill known junior who your grandfather are new his dad in baseball and sports ended up bringing people together all of different backgrounds and colors but but your dad ended up hiring bill nine to be a part of the process of picking great talent because he recognized there were many young players who were brie and overlooked because they were playing at black schools and you said he wanted badly to have a successful team that was also a model of integration and he had made that clear to his top football people and they agreed and the result of that was championship football on top of making it diverse right absolutely so so you know in terms of outcomes you're you're looking at what happened with your from nineteen sixty nine to nineteen seventy six it does crack more players in the H. B. C. use are starkly black colleges universities than any other team and you can now go on you get John Stallworth you get on the shell you know you get so many guys that that contributed in such a significant way that these great teams so so that that's the result but but when you talk about diversity we talk about change everyone again okay I spoke to in interviews for this process and then again more recently when I actually checked back in with both last couple weeks because because I think that's something I need to get out is again to listen and learn more and more and you know they all talk about trauma and how it how it was delivered to me is is in order to try someone who you know looks different sounds different has different life experiences is there someone like me and even who looks like me had a similar experience all in the decision making process and so bill's presence was so important not just because of his his knowledge and insight and is access to the data news but it also built this level house that my father was doing things the right way and it wasn't all his ideas of how diverse your integration see where politics should play out that you know he did rely on on people and and then your bill specifically who who had real knowledge and experience of of what it was like to look at what can be different in so many ways and then you had the these guys come up you know Mel Blanc never had a white female coach before he got to the Steelers you come here and and changes the NFL and you know again there's that sense of property came into an environment where he felt like he could you know he could express his power to the get on the field and then he's done wonderful things for the community off the field but but again getting back to that office point of bringing someone in and making sure it's not just you know just because you're in charge you're gonna make the decision you're gonna you're gonna rely on people who have experienced similar to them the folks that you're you're intending to bring on board and you wrote the bill nine paid your dad one of the greatest compliments of his life when he wrote I don't think Dan sees color and I don't say that about a lot of people in you said your father consider that to be a treasured thought yep there was no there was a straight shooter yeah I remember it was my first Boston training camp so you know I I got in trouble many many times for for you know not doing things right when I was when I was a ball boy training camp but then as I got older I always go into bill's office and we would talk about the community we would talk about politics in Pittsburgh you told me all these great stories about the growth and the evolution of the elder street and you know his father's war with with the the the Pittsburgh Crawfords the the the Negro league baseball team that that is so famous but but you know some bill bill was not afraid to say Hey look this is my this is my view on on the world leader this is my view on things and and growing up in in the healthcare sector in this this huge transformation from you Jim crow to the civil rights you know to to really you know the last ten years yeah he had that experience we watched it again wasn't afraid of of who he was or the color of his skin or that cultural experience they had and so for him the service saying that about my father you know dad just knew that it wasn't just you know not many men a lot because the new bills history in new history of the non family so so so that you don't have that impression meant a lot to my father in you published a letter that your dad wrote to Paul tag Leah who is the commissioner at the time and this is in October two thousand two in one of the things that jumped off the page to me was I think about that's eighteen years ago and in the end he writes dear Paul in summary please consider these thoughts on racial diversity in coaching and team front offices and potential for accelerating progress in these areas he's basically imploring the commissioner that that the league has to do better in individually and collectively ownership now has to determine what down needs to be done at the club level to ensure true diversity the Steelers strongly recommend you proceed on this basis and I think that was eighteen years ago and that's about I want to talk about the details of the Rooney rule in what's developed in what happened since since your father's past him because I think as you also point out in some cases you think that the rule change when your dad passed and it shouldn't have right well yeah but I you know I I I put that letter in there and read it twenty times but I haven't read it you know in in the last couple months or weeks and you know you know my father Paul Henry blues germinate get past involved there I gentleman named Tom Williamson who is one of the first African American lawyers at a big law firm in Washington DC and and really feel they helped you know they bought a house this is what we call your movie will concept and and several other folks involved but but how the hell in target they were with that letter that and that is something that that we could we could close today and and you'll get a lot alike the mobile were and so yeah I'm not I'm not gonna put my thought on the back that when you just read that I'm like wow that really was on target and that's so that's what I thought too Jim it did it did it could it applies today eighteen years later right right so you don't have the votes of the reporter says a couple things I would say that my father did and that I think are important again I I I I I there's there's two sides to the story this is a both a and fifty waiting because I think that we we have to really respect the moment were and so on that level look we're we're not far enough along with the other are only for our African American head coaches right now and I think that would bother my father and I think that that he would knowledge that that you we have not done enough and has not accomplished or not so soon so that I think that's the position he would take but I also think about what he did and how he did it like I was studying for the book and first of all he really changed the conversation in corporate America if there's one diversity policy that everyone in any industry we'll tell you about it's the Rooney rule and whatever limitations we can say there you know it really was a change in the overall mindset and attitude in corporate America and a for the wheel is going to get to these places we want to get to and get past moments of high fashion which I think are important you know but and an affect the long term change you know it's careers jobs opportunities are are going to be central to that and so that so the idea that he changed that policy I think it's so important then the next thing he did Larry jumping because I know you were with Jill Rooney what will just it will pause for a moment we have time and I'm really grateful for your time this evening and want to talk through this in your write your book is more poignant now that was three months ago frankly a different way to win Dan Rooney story from.

"tom williamson" Discussed on Science Friday
"A group of adding Matic Paleocene mammals so mammals that lived after the dinosaurs went extinct and they did make it into the UCLA. Which is the time period immediately after the failure scene but at that point they're quite big and kind of the cows of the you've seen and they didn't make it out of the ESPN and so they're interesting because they're the first animals to kind of grow to the truly large urban core niche after the dinosaurs went extinct and yet they're interesting. Would I lose sleep over now? How would we recognize their descendants today or as you say did they do? They died out. They never made past they. They died out. So they're they don't have any extant living relatives But I mean kind of the most common pass it onto probably paleontologists minds is career. Fidan and if you kind of take a cow and put a hippo in a little bit and then make it real ugly. You kind of have Caribbean John And so yeah like just big like tons sized animals wandering around eating vegetation being the cows of the ESPN is the best way to think about him. Any idea why they didn't make it. That's a really good questions. One of the many that so I'm working on a PhD right now. Kind of trying to solve Pantheon's many of the people who have worked on Pantheon's before have worked on Pantheon during their PhD's and then run away screaming them never to work on them again so Yeah that's one of the questions sort of when did Pantheon's originate? Where did they originate? What are their family relationships and what might be some of the drivers in them getting so big and then going extinct or some of the big questions. I'm trying to answer with my so. Why are you not running and screaming away from this topic? Because Steve's a really good supervisor and I was working with him thank you where you one of these page where you went on these Jurassic Park affect students. How the movie got you interested? Possibly dinosaurs actually know on so. I didn't have a lot of exposure to television growing up but my parents made the mistake of buying the encyclopedia of dinosaurs when I was about four and That was the end the beginning of the end And Yeah so I just really liked reading about them and really likes looking at pictures of them. But I didn't see Jurassic Park until I was in high school actually on my biology class. Put It on. I was like ooh. Dinosaurs can move. Steve what's your reaction to that. You must have known this. Well I mean what first of all page I think. You're under selling pants. Don's snow this cow. If oh come on come on. I don't know I mean we're we're doing a big project. in my in my lab and Edinburgh now that pages apart of and several other Great students from all over the world are a part of And we have colleagues in the US including some who listened religiously. So Jon Waibel Tom Williamson Sarah. Shelly you're listening low We're all trying to figure. Out How mammals evolved after the dinosaurs extinction and these are particularly the placental mammals like us. So we WANNA know. How are our own ancestry? Goes back to this time It's a really exciting area of Research. Now and for people like paging me that if started off studying dinosaurs kind of making that natural progression to mammals and Yeah and when you find the answer you'll come back and tell us right. We will come back anytime I wrote as you guys. Science Friday has been great. And thank you for all the kind words. You've all said about my book over the last couple of years. I know you've mentioned several times. I gotTA say ending. Great Year. A great popularizer. I think you've sent page along that road to so congratulations to both of us. T- Precisely Paleontologist University of Edinburgh and page the Polo. I hope I got your name right. A PhD Student School of Geosciences Also University of Edinburgh. Good luck on your PhD. Work and come back and talk about those. Pantheon's some more later have a great weekend. Thank you welcome. If you missed any part of science Friday like to hear it again we hanging out and we have all kinds of ways for you to listen. We have a smart speaker to play science Friday and on the science writing. Vox Pop up..

"That. They're willing to give him a chance. I hear together. But in the end Kyrie's champion. Katie's a two-time champion Simmons and embiid learn how to win. I understood different about two strong personalities who can dictate when they want to be coached by or if they deem the coach to be the guy that della so much adversity. The Cleveland situation didn't work out Boston situation injury. He's hearing all the Naysayers K. D. Had all the haters for making the move to the warriors an injury. They just have a common goal that I think they'll be able to have a low where I'm winning moving kyw really because they have they have they could surround Katie coach. The Brooklyn Nets is GonNa be. I'm not talking about the beginning of next year. There's going to be who the Hell K. D. There's crispy and then there's crispy try our new and improved Tyson crispy chicken strips crispy just got crispy for nine on the. Pelicans hit the big face. Luca in the mavs at nine thirty eastern. Tonight that'll be on. Espn and a match between the reigning rookie of the year and potential rookie of the year. Max Moving forward. Who Are you taking Zion or Luca? Danni easy answer but I'm going to Zion and the reason I'm GonNa take. Zion is because Luca can still get better. He could shoot it veteran. I anticipate he will and he can play better. Defense anticipate he will but in terms of the basic style of his game it's going to remain more or less the same. Maybe a little better version of this. Zion is already not just a regular all star caliber player so far. He's like an all star plus he's nineteen two years younger year and a half younger and he doesn't really have came yet. He doesn't even really developed his game yet. So I think about superstars like the all time greats in two different categories. The kind of guys who did it with I. Q Magic Johnson Larry Bird. Not that they didn't have stuff size differs. So does Luka have some size and then I think about the physical freaks Jordan Physical. Freak people overlook that now he was a forty eight inch vert. He was physically different than everyone. Shack was physical freak. Just different those guys to me have even more upside than the magics and birds. Because of the physical dominance of their game and Lebron showed you that could be. Lebron was a physical freak. Who then who already came in with the gay but further developed it. Not that Zairean will be just like Lebron but he has room to grow a lot of room. He's averaging twenty four points now with a lot of room to grow as a teenager. I will take that upside over. Luca who who's game is already very polished and already to me more or less what it'll be. I disagree with you. The reason why disagree with you as much as I love me some Zion Williams number one we just had a segment about the health williams. He needs to sit down because walking around to eighty. Okay that's number. One number two is much and as big Tom Williamson. Is I got news for you? Lucas large to he is a global. He is fast and rapidly becoming a global icon. Not to mention the fact that he's averaging over twenty eight a game not to mention the fact that this is a brother that can shoot. I mean he pulls up deep and he's a point guard that has the ball in his hands and so because of the position that he plays the responsibility that recall has placed on his shoulders. The way he's able to dictate the tempo the pace of the game the fact that he himself can't control when he takes over because again he has the ball in his hands whereas Zion. In most instances relying somebody to give him that basketball even today's Day a day and age with open obviously still has the ball. And since I'm just thinking about what you're doing yeah he might have arrived and he might be would he is but what he is is pretty damn special and this is a guard oriented game this NBA. Game I'm going with. The dude has got the ball in his hands. Pretty much all the damn time as look out say Luke Multiple Times. I don't have to think about it. I think Luka even if he were to sustain some kind of injury when you watch him play he's never in a rush nobody can speed him up. He uses his size and his frame to get you to where he wants to be. His vision ultimately is a game. Changer I mean not just the twenty five plus points even a but the eight nine assists per game. He makes the game so much easier for everybody. So I say that thinking about if Zion were to have some kind of injury again where he wouldn't be able to play above the RIM with Zion Williamson. Be the same right. That's A. That's a major concern. I think if Luca has some kind of injury he can still backed out he. You can still get you to the post. You can still see a top. He can sue. Look even with one leg. I can still get you involved in opinion. Upn Are I understand how to play? I can still be extremely effective of that so I just think Luka when you see him in Mexico talk Spanish to everybody international flair international pill Real Madrid. Barcelona Dallas Mark. Cuban as he's a man he's a man who because moss playing like a man since he's been here for you against the injury factor. I can't argue against that. What I'm thinking about is more like the fizz. I think of magic and bird and guys like that then. I think of the freaks Wilt Chamberlain Shaquille O'Neal you could put Lebron in that category too. There's just like at their best at their apex. There's no answer for them. Zion Williamson has a chance to be the kind of player. Where you just can you? Do you just got to give it up right. He's physically too much for everybody and this is student without a question. When need to Zion's pat plan college vault versus Luca? You talk about thirteen years old moves out of the House plan pro all through Europe. Do you think Luka would be the player? He is now if he hadn't taken that path. No no I didn't. That'll become a trend. Well yeah I mean that's a that's a great topic because I I kind of see college basketball and a lot of kids going overseas to play you see the NBA reinvest into the G. League again. You have some kids like James. Wiseman just working out throughout the course of the year even though his situation what went that way but I do think that is a major advantage like coming from a place I do go into. Mba was drastically different world. You grow men or your team guys with families. Kids playing against the game was drastic with college basketball. It sad to say coach k. Addressed this Recently and what have you need right about that The fact of the matter is outside of March madness. We don't give a damn about college basketball and I think it's in large for due to you know exploitive nature of the NCWA the fact that you see options for these guys the G. League elevating and the NBA plan overseas in Europe. And what have you knowing that you can come into the NBA at age? Nineteen if you're right here in America Europe you know whenever you can get over here. The bottom line is that there are too many better options and the in. Ncwa is so rigid in doing what it can't facilitate and better shirt might might help. Certain players but Luca is the way he is. Because that's the way like not everyone could thrive under the conditions. He did it well growing up in eastern Europe. They'll be I was just curious now if you're a son right now and that's your goal to get him to the NBA. Which path you think you would go the path of the most exposure path. So like do you know you do have okay. No nobody here. Does he probably best player for the team? That could win a championship for Kansas Right now. But you all know Lamelo ball right. The male just play basketball but it's also style two style. Does matter like if you if you are. You know if you've got an aerial assault that that that attracts attention trae young okay and you go to the University of North Carolina or Duke. Excuse me you're going to get notoriety but that's doing a favor for the NCW NCWA. Does these kids no favors in terms of the notoriety and the recognition. They do nothing for them. Why is it?.
"tom williamson" Discussed on The Children's Hour
"Jazz collaborative. The children's hour we're broadcasting casting from the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and science here in Albuquerque New Mexico and with us on the show is is Gary Morgan. He is a paleontologist here at the museum and also joining us Dr Tom Williamson he is also a paleontologist kissed. Are you are a paleontologist curator. Something like that was your official title. Oh I'm a curator of paleontology just like every so we're both curator's and your doctor Tom. That's right okay. I'm so excited you're here. Gary just is revealing to us for the very first time a glimpse to don that has has never been shown before and it was discovered twenty years ago but never really explored until a month ago and here it is. It looks like an Armadillo Gary. Tell us about these creatures. When did they live? And where did they live so this one is about two million years old. We found it in a fossil site south of LAS cruces between Las cruces and the Mexican border but the group. I showed up about forty million years ago in South America so they've been around for a long time as I mentioned earlier their relatives types of Armadillos at B._U.. Are Living animal that would be most similar and then about. I'm going to say three million years ago. North America and South America at that time South America was an island incontinent. They became connected at Panama kind of where the Panama Canal is an animal's could go back and forth. It's called an inner change and these giant Lipid ons lumbering along somehow managed to walk all the way from South America to New Mexico and left their bones behind for us to find. Is it important to study paleontology alien technology well to me. It's important just to be able to understand what lived on earth before and a lot of these this glinted on you haven't seen one walking around their extinct so we are specialists in studying studying extinction and this is naturally occurring extinction but as we all know there's too many extinctions of living animals and plants going on today so we hope that maybe by studying the natural extinctions how those occurred maybe we can prevent extinctions of modern animals animals that we don't want to go extinct. We have a question here from an audience member. Yes please. How did you find this fossil in the ground so this was actually as I meant mentioned in my earlier it was right on the surface? That's how we found it. Whether it's a very well known fossil collector in fact his name is Paul Sealey. He's the one that found the best Ibiza and it's named in his honor found owned a couple bones on the surface of the Shell and he showed them to me and I recognize my thought is a baby flippant on for my experience and then we started digging and I made what I described that we used strips of burlap so can plaster to make cast around this thing to bring it back to the museum but really just a couple of little bones on the surface and from that point I used my experience variance to determine the I think looks like something interesting. We should take this back home. Is that what it takes scary to know if something is a fossil or just a boring question very commonly. How do you know this is a fossil at it's it's really just an experience you know where you are in other words? I know that geology so it's a certain certain age there's a certain kind of animal from my experience. I should be looking for so when I'm looking for these. I'm not looking for dinosaurs because the age of the Rock is wrong but the texture the size I used to shape are different from rocks and we do get people to bring in rocks of the identified all the time that they think are fossil so it it happens yes. How do you know how old it ladies well that that's where the geology comes in we study? Tom And I are both taken. Many geology courses at U._N._M.. And other places and you can buy certain air techniques geological techniques one is there's a geochemical technique where you can determine the age what we call the absolute age of volcanic rocks and if we find these volcanic rocks that are near some of our fossils that will tell us that say the dinosaurs are seventy five million years old because of the rocks. You can't really for the most part date the fossils themselves directly so you describe to the listeners at home what did on looked like sure so I had my little model here. His little model looks like a little model but it's funny. A lot of people have described this thing as looking like a tank. You know a giant land tortoise that you'd see zoo there reptiles but this is the mammal answer to the giant land tortoise so it had a big shell big dome Shell. They were as much as six or eight feet long there are three or four feet tall and weighed about a ton so they're very large animals. They're very slow. They had this big thick bony shell as armored armored Shell to protect them from predators because they couldn't escape they were too slow and the other thing is that they were not predators. They were that very tall teeth that indicates that they <unk> a coarse grasses and other things got a lot of grit in their diet so they were herbivores. Not Predators armadillos today the the grandchildren eh they are actually and there are some study that was done just recently. You may have heard of this. They're actually being able to now extract DNA. They called ancient d._n._A.. From fossils from bones primarily Gerald from the Ice Age they did this on clip it on from South America and they're very closely related to Armadillos in fact they nest so to speak within the family you you may know that there's probably ten or fifteen kinds of armadillos and South America not just we have won the night the nine banded armadillo Patagonian South America. They have fifteen kinds of armadillos but within that group Armadillos the lipid aunts fall out according to the ancient DNA Gary Morgan is a paleontologist here at the Natural History Museum. Thank you you for being with us on the children's hour. We're GONNA leave here for folks to look at for a minute and while we're talking to Gary Morgan about this did on it got me thinking about the the biggest I beast and for folks who are not dinosaur lovers like myself Dr Tom Williamson. Can you explain the Bist I beast yes so I'm a paleontologist like Gary but I tend to find fossils. That are quite a bit older so I'm looking at fossils from the late cretaceous. These are are about sixty five to seventy million years old and I collect these mostly up in northwestern New Mexico so back in the late nineteen ninety s <hes> I excavated the Bist I beast and we have a big animatronic. A big robot dinosaur. That's based on the best I beast real name of. It is Big Stock Iverson C._P._I.. So the Sealy I is based is because it was discovered by a volunteer we're here Paul. Sealy Misaki verster is kind of a Latin and Greek and Navajo words for destroyer from the badlands. It's fair to say it at this. animatronic beast is he's starting to come to life which means every thirty minutes he comes to life and you're GonNa hear that on the radio here in just a second <hes> Dr Williams and he really looks like a tyrannosaurus rex like what's the difference for those of us who are not you to know how that that's not a T.. Rex a t Iraq's is the biggest and the very last of the big tyrannosaur dinosaurs bestow he reverser the BIS type East lived about ten million years before forty racks and he's a he's a distant cousin so he's not only older. He lived alongside a bunch of other translators that are all related to transverse rex. He did not give rise to t rex. He's kind of an off branch and he's we say he's more primitive so he doesn't GonNa have a lot of the same features of T. Rex but he resembles T. rex a lot. He's just smaller. Have you found any real large. Fossils news of dinosaurs like the T. rex here in New Mexico. Yes t rex has been discovered in New Mexico. Probably the best specimen comes from of all places elephant butte reservoir so for non new Mexicans. This is a damning of the Rio Grande and SORTA southern New Mexico and it made for a huge you know kind of like a lake mead sort of Lake that people water ski and vote on Oh. My goodness here comes the best I beast you could hear it in the background and would you agree with Gary that even your discoveries are right on the surface or it seems like if you're discovering something hundreds of millions of years old we'd have to pig yeah all our discoveries made kind of the old fashioned way we walk around out in the badlands so we go to places where there's a lot of erosion you find that in in the Badlands New Mexico has lots of badlands and those are the perfect places to find dinosaur bones. I love it and can you talk a little bit. What about did you always love dinosaurs? Are you like one of those kids who loved dinosaurs so much and you thought I have to do this for the rest of my life. Or how did you come about being being a paleontologist. How does someone become a paleontologist? I loved dinosaurs. I'm a You're listening to the children's hour we are broadcasting from the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and science. Will we're GONNA come back with more educators worse in just a minute. This is Andrew Poly. Hey.

"Give it up for Rohan McKinsey and the Youth Dad's collaborative the quite delighted to welcome back on the children's hour a longtime friend of the show but also a man who does a lot of heat. He Digs New Mexico like literally paleontologist Gary Morgan Welcome back to the children's hour so glad time in the studio now you get to show all your cool things to people all over here in the end the lobby hair so well Gary Moore when we have a lot of questions for you and the very first question is coming from our friend Evelyn Evelyn. Are you ready for your question. Why is Palin Child. Just we'll paleontologist study fossils but to simply we study ancient life so people study history they studied the history of people and we study the history of life on earth so and we do that through the study of fossils and it could be plants it could be dinosaurs could be our friend that flipped it on the giant armadillo that I'm GonNa talk about any other study of fossils history history of life. What is the difference between a paleontologist and an archaeologist. That's a good one. I get that all the time because not not to be disrespectful that I get it being get accused of being an archaeologist all the time mostly by reporters if we're out in the field and and it's a lot of archaeologists on my best friends are outlets. They study studied history of people culture. Archaeology is what archaeologists will dig up whatever archeological sites look at artifacts and things like that but they all relate to people were looking at as I said again plants and animals so not so you study the history of people the cultural a cultural anthropologists if you study plants animals fossils than your paleontologists. That's the difference okay so I have a question too. I was wondering do you find fossils just about everywhere in New Mexico New Mexico's terrific because we have a very diverse geology literally in the entire history of life. Not Everything is found in the all over the earth but last five hundred million years of time and we have really good fossils almost rocks of almost all those ages are represented in New Mexico so you have to know something about the geology about the rocks to know where to go. Do you WanNa find a dinosaur. You go one place you WanNa find a mammoth third one of these scripted on she goes somewhere else but anyhow. New Mexico is a great place for fossils. How deep are fossils are. How deep underground are fossils well? It really really varies a actually pretty much have to be on the surface for us to find them. We do a lot of what we call surveying. We'll go to an area where we think there are fossils and we walk around on the surfacing. We'll find like we found the bones of this eroding on the surface and then we dig and then sometimes we'll have a court we call chlorine. Sometimes they'll go very deep but for the most apart we tend to find things right on the surface they eroded out of rocks at the surface of the Earth Gary. Can you talk about the you brought out for the visual. Audience and we're certainly posting photos to radio on Instagram facebook and twitter but you brought out this never shown before fossil and it is quite a special guy now that looks like a toy that you're just as I realized through my career as a paleontologist not everybody's he's had comparative Anatomy classes in college so they have trouble going from a bone to what the animal looked like in life so I bought this at our gift shop. I'm not doc plugging the gift shop. I'm just saying that you'd go to any gift shop and a museum around the country and you'll find dinosaurs but only rarely do they have mammals. I study mammals. I'm not a dinosaur paleontology million dollars. You'll talk to Tom Williamson little bit who has a dinosaur paleontologist but any rate this animal was found south of Las cruces and it's actually a new discovery. That's that's an old discovery. I found this thing twenty years ago before. Most of the kids format to all the kids here in this audience were born. I didn't think it was much there was much to it. It looked a little scrap you so we made what we call a plaster jacket we use plaster and Burlap to chase the fossil to preserve it brought it back here and it sat in our Museum Storage Bridge Facility for twenty years until somebody needed a project we'd run out of projects and we have a fossil works lab right here. People volunteers will remove fossils Chirac's just about a month ago. The volunteers started working on this and all of a sudden. It was way way more interesting than I thought it was. It turns out to be the skeleton. Never baby flipped it on this. This is what an adult clipped down would look like if you multiply this by about forty times it would be about six feet long. Maybe three or four feet tall weigh about a tonne baby. No I'm sorry the adult the adult the baby is maybe not a baby sort of juvenile a youngster like a teenager they had a shell that was made out of bones very thick bones and you might wonder why haven't Armand it is an Armadillo I mean I'm just going to say for the listening audience. He's basically quickly showing us. Everybody loved bill but this giant lifted on is a relative of the living everybody's favourite folk critter the armadillo. You'll find that on the road in Texas all the time in Florida where I spent a lot of time. This is an animal. That's it's a mammal. It's originally from South America and the Glickman's sounds originally came from South America and that's a little bit of the story also how they got to New Mexico from South America but any rate these guys have a shell. That's actually made a bones so underneath what you see here which looks like maybe a material like our fingernails. There's bones and in fact he's getting more stuff his tray right now and there's a pattern pattern that pattern has helped tells us that this animal with bones this about an inch thick that formed a shell completely impervious your shell that was used for protecting against predators so these are called lifted on. We're talking to Gary Morgan. He's a paleontologist here. At the New Mexico Museum Ziam of Natural History and science year listening.
