This is just…strange. Scientists at Yale apparently created chicken embryos with Velociraptor-like snouts in place of beaks, according to a statement they released yesterday. While it would have been really odd/interesting to see these things walking around, the embryos (somewhat thankfully) didn’t survive to hatch. “They actually probably wouldn’t have…

In Miami, for example, the "street-level" is now considered the basement and insurers are dropping coverage for basements. According to the Daily Beast, at least 340,000 California homeowners lost their property insurance coverage between 2015 and 2018 because the wildfires are getting worse and companies don't want to pay out when homes are destroyed.
