      Scientists have discovered a feathered dinosaur tail trapped in a piece of 99-million-year-old amber, bought from an amber market in Myanmar. The specimen is definitive proof that two-legged dinosaurs like Tyrannosaurus rex had bird-like feathers.

    • Scientists discover dinosaur trapped in amber in unprecedented find

      'Once in a lifetime find' The findings, which shed fresh light on how dinosaurs looked, are published in the December issue of Current Biology. Ryan McKellar, a paleontologist at the Royal Saskatchwan Museum in Canada and co-author of the paper, says he was blown away when Xing first showed him the piece of amber. "It's a once in a lifetime find. The finest details are visible and in three dimensions." Fragments of dinosaur-era bird wings have been found preserved in amber before but this is the first time part of a mummified dinosaur skeleton has been discovered, McKellar said. The tail section belongs to a young coelurosaurian -- from the same group of dinosaurs as the predatory velociraptors

    • Louise Roe Went a Different Route For Bridesmaid Dresses at Her Wedding — and It Was Brilliant

      When Louise Roe revealed she was marrying Mackenzie Hunkin, we knew the event would be something to "ooh" and "ahh" over later. It's rare that the host and influencer isn't dressed to the nines, and a quick look at her red carpet gowns proves she can flawlessly rock one, in any color, any day of the week. For her wedding, however, Louise went with a custom Atelier Pronovias option that included intricate lace details, a high neckline, and short sleeves. The piece, which was first revealed on Martha Stewart Weddings, dreamily trailed behind the bride as she walked down the aisle, revealing bold buttons all down the back. Yet Louise's wedding look wasn't the only part of the day that had us completely

    • Corbin Bleu's Wedding Vows Were Basically Every Bride's Worst Nightmare

      Sure, he had the moves to wow his guests during his first dance, but newlywed Corbin Bleu's wedding vows definitely were not as smooth as his kick-ball-change.

"Getting married to Sasha today was the best moment of my life," Bleu previously shared soon after his "I dos." But the day wasn't without its hiccups of course, i.e. the groom's wedding vows which were a little, err, unusual to say the least... Bleu recently stopped by Live with Kelly, where he dished with the host on his overall unforgettable wedding day (video below). But it turns out that it was his vows that

    • Batman: Every Adaptation Of The Penguin, Ranked Worst To Best

      Oswald Cobblepot, or as he is better known, the Penguin has been a thorn in Batman’s side ever since his first appearance back in 1941. Short and stout with a bird-like face, the evil kingpin rules over his Iceberg Lounge as well as a large portion of Gotham’s underworld in a quest for complete control of the city. The Penguin embraces his bird motif, using everything from ostriches to eagles (to literal penguins with rockets strapped to their back) to hatch his evil schemes. And of course, we can’t talk about the Penguin without mentioning his signature top hat and umbrella (many of which double as hidden weapons). The bird-loving criminal mastermind has had no shortage of interpretations over
