Tiny Texas dinosaur finally has a name nearly 35 years after discovery in treasure trove of fossils

Dallas Morning News Originally Posted: April 4, 2019 About 120 million years ago, flocks of small dinosaurs bounded from plant to plant in an open floodplain southwest of what is now Fort Worth. They stood on two legs as they foraged for leaves and shoots. The smallest hatchlings were about the length of your hand, while the largest measured 9 feet from head to tail. “They were birdlike and very agile, slender, fast-running dinosaurs,” said Kate Andrzejewski, a postdoctoral fellow at Southern Methodist University and lead author of a highly anticipated new paper in the journal PLOS ONE that describes these creatures for the first time. The dinosaurs, which Andrzejewski and her colleagues named Convolosaurus marri, make up the largest trove of dinosaur fossils ever discovered in Texas. Convolosaurus means “flocking [...]

Justin Barringer, Albert Schweitzer Fellow: Why Low-Income Parents End Up Paying More For Diapers

KERA Originally Posted: April 3, 2019 Justin Barringer is a Dallas-Fort Worth Albert Schweitzer Fellow and Religious Ethics PhD candidate at SMU. Below is an article from KERA regarding his Dallas nonprofit, Diapers, Ect. Diapers Etc. hands out around 10,000 to 12,000 diapers per month to families in need, for free. For those families on the financial edge, the necessary baby-care staple would be a crippling cost otherwise. Last month, 600 people came through the door of the Far East Dallas nonprofit. "There's been tears of despair, of folks who just feel like they have let their kids down, that they don't know how to make ends meet to take care of the kids that they love," co-founder Justin Barringer said. He runs the diaper pantry [...]

You Can Never Leave the Border Behind

I feared we’d live the rest of our days waiting for the faint smell of wet dirt.
