Evolution of mammals The evolution of mammals has passed through many stages since the first appearance of their synapsid ancestors in the late Carboniferous period. By the mid-Triassic, there were many synapsid species that looked like mammals. The lineage leading to today's mammals split up in the Jurassic; synapsids from this period include Dryolestes, more closely related to extant placentals and marsupials than to monotremes, as well as Ambondro, more closely related to monotremes. Later on, the eutherian and metatherian lineages separated; the metatherians are the animals more closely related to the marsupials, while the eutherians are those more closely related to the placentals. Throughout the Permian period, the synapsids included the dominant carnivores and several important herbivores. Most of the evidence consists of fossils. Although mammary glands are a signature feature of modern mammals, little is known about the evolution of lactation. Definition of "mammal" Amniotes

One of the most impressive credit sequences of 2004, we wrote. The end credits of Madagascar 2: Escape to Africa are not as epic or as elaborate as the titles for Lemony Snicket's, nor do they share the same richness in terms of narrative depth, but Caliri and his team at DUCK created an entertaining sequence that carries Jamie's signature style. The movie's main characters - Marty the zebra, Alex the lion, Gloria the hippo, Melman the giraffe, along with some of the supporting cast; all reappear in the end credit sequence, albeit in a different form than in the movie. From DUCK's press release: "'I Like to Move It,' one of four songs from the film's soundtrack created by Will.I.Am of Black Eyed Peas, moves the action along while the film's whimsical characters shamelessly provide their modern dance interpretations."

A citizen has filed a lawsuit at a local court on Wednesday, alleging a local auto company's sign is polluting his bedroom with light. Lu Yaodong, the accuser, wants to rid himself of the light he has endured for two years through using the law. "The lamps in front of an automobile exhibition hall downstairs have been illuminating my bedroom at night for nearly two years, seriously affecting my life," said Lu. "I heard of the standard months ago and knew it would take effect. Lu asked the accused Yongdazhongbao Auto Sales and Service Co Ltd, which owns the hall, to remove the lamps and give him 1,000 yuan (US$120) in compensation. The Shanghai Pudong New Area District People's Court has accepted the case. "Those lamps cannot produce pollution since they are not bright enough to do so," said a manager with the auto company who refused to be named. (China Daily September 3, 2004)

SHANGHAI CHINA Internationally, light pollution is divided into three categories: white brightness pollution, artificial lightening and color light pollution. White brightness pollution means that when the sun shines intensively, light is reflected from glass curtain-walls, glazed panels, burnished marble and paints of various kinds, etc. This light is shines brightly, and can dazzle and hurt the eyes. After night falls, advertising lights and neon lights from the shops, restaurants and hotels shine brightly, making one feel dizzy. Color light pollution refers to the pollution caused by black lights, rotary lights, fluorescent lamps, and the glinting and flickering color light sources installed in dance halls and KTVs. According to Professor Li Jingse from the Institute of Building Physics of the China Academy of Building Research, the legislation on city glass curtain-walls has been drafted in China and is underway for reporting to the Ministry of Construction for ratification.
Forget the Film, Watch the Titles - Rango title sequence HENRY HOBSON ABOUT THE END CREDITS FOR RANGOPeople appreciate the energy and effort that was put into a handmade piece of work,and it starts to pay off...Amazingly, the end credit sequence for Rango was done in just a few weeks, yet it's a very accomplished and unique project that is founded on 'old school' analogue handiwork, such as intricate illustrations, woodcut art, and handdrawn typography, with a bit of Hendrix thrown in for good measure. Prologue's creative director Henry Hobson reconstructs the process and shares the beautiful concept art that he and his team created. Hobson talks to us via Skype about the making of Rango, from the relative quietness of Kyle Cooper's windowless office on the ground floor of Prologue, temporarily removed from the hustle and the bustle of the studio space on the second floor, where the designers are working. I asked what the space looks like. “The view is just his books and ephemera, which is an interesting perspective. more about Henry Hobson
