How did the “new”, aquatic Spinosaurus fare against one of the deadliest predators to ever walk the earth?

. . . if forced to fight, the world’s largest fisherman would use its lethal talons to make any attacker regret trying to make a meal of it.”

— Max Hawthorne

BUCKINGHAM, PA, US, June 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Spinosaurus, the legendary bipedal villain of “Jurassic Park 3”, a terrifying man-eater that snapped a T-rex’s neck with its bare claws, just got a makeover, and tongues are wagging. Recent fossils discoveries have revealed that the huge flesh-eater was first and foremost not bipedal. It mainly walked on all fours like a giant crocodile. And, despite its film debut, its diet did not include other dinosaurs for the most part, but rather something far less impressive: fish.

But Spinosaurus wasn’t alone. It shared its Cretaceous swamps, lakes and rivers with other huge predators, including the creature popularly known as the “African T-rex”: Carcharodontosaurus. This was a dinosaur as big and bad as the North American Tyrannosaurus, so how did the fish-eating Spinosaurus survive conflicts with its massive meat-eating rival?

Max Hawthorne, author of the bestselling Kronos Rising dinosaur fiction series, and an amateur paleontologist whose theory on plesiosaur swim mechanics may have solved how these four-flippered marine reptiles swam, recently put forth a theory addressing that exact question.

“The thing about Spinosaurus is that it was superbly adapted as a piscivore,” Hawthorne said during a recent interview. “It had long, narrow skull, like a gharial, filled with sharp, conical teeth that were designed to pierce and hold prey. At the end of its jaws was an alcove – a curved section that accommodated slippery fish. It also had foramina on its head – pressure sensors that detected movement in the surrounding water. It could probably snare fish in the dark, like crocodilians can.”

“We also know,” Hawthorne continued, “courtesy of the incredible work by paleontologists Ibrahim, et al, that it had a long, high tail, designed to propel it though the water, like an alligator or newt.” When asked about encounters with its other resident big-bad, Carcharodontosaurus, he added, “There was a price to pay for all those aquatic adaptations. Having a snout like a gharial was great for snapping up fish, but a slender skull isn’t made for combat with other colossi. You don’t pit a fencing foil against a broadsword. Similarly, the comparatively fragile jaws of Spinosaurus would not have fared well against the crushing, slashing jaws of a dinosaur killer like Carcharodontosaurus.”

When asked if “Spino” would have had encounters with the “African T-rex”, and if so, how it might have fared against such a nemesis, Hawthorne was quick to respond. “Confrontations were inevitable. Although Spinosaurus probably spent most of its time in the water, it undoubtedly came ashore to nest, to bask, or, if its lake or river dried up, to relocate (I believe the “sail” was a fat-storing hump like in today’s camels – a defense against dry seasons). Add to that, Carcharodontosaurus had to drink, and a Spino sitting at the river’s edge was a potential meal. We know conflicts happened because one fossilized Spinosaurus neural spine has a healed bite mark on it that matches the bite of Carcharodontosaurus.

But how could Spinosaurus survive such an attack? Hawthorne believes the dinosaur, despite being a primary quadruped, could still rear up on its hind legs like a bear, ground sloth, or giant anteater. In fact, he feels that the anteater is a perfect comparison. “Anteaters have a long, fragile snout, a large tail that helps balance them when they stand up, and they are often preyed upon by jaguars. But anteaters are not helpless,” Hawthorne pointed out. “They have the same weapons that Spinosaurus did: long, curved talons on the forelimbs. And this is how Spino would defend itself against meat-eaters like the 42-foot, 8+ ton Carcharodontosaurus.”

The author pictures Spinosaurus rearing up, two stories high, with its vulnerable head drawn back, and striking the face of any attacker as it came at it. “We know that theropods could not turn their ‘hands’ palm down, but they could move them inwardly in a wide clapping motion. For example, picture the flapping of a bird’s wings. This meant powerful slashes could be directed at anything attacking it. Anteaters have driven off jaguars this way, and you can bet Spinosaurus behaved similarly. Logically, it would’ve first tried escaping into the water, and bluffing if that failed. But, if forced to fight, the world’s largest fisherman would use its lethal talons to make any attacker regret trying to make a meal of it.”

Game Nacional Releases Its Newest Game on Switch: Him & Her, an Unique Puzzle Platformer

Him & Her cover image

Him & Her gameplay

Him & Her level

Love is like a puzzle.”

— Victor Vilhena

SãO LOURENçO, MINAS GERAIS, BRAZIL, June 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Him & Her was released June 11th on Nintendo Switch. This Brazilian indie game features two protagonists in their adventures to rejoin once again. Going across many levels, and solving puzzles to successfully complete them. It got into the top 30 of most downloaded games on eShop for June 24th.

In this game the player gets to control Him, a guy who got split apart from his partner in this ever changing scenario, through his journey to meet Her again. Starting a few platforms away from Her, the goal is to find the best path for them to reunite in each of the over 60 increasingly challenging levels.

Its dark themed yet family friendly tone, from the grey world to its compelling soundtrack, will make each moment an enjoyable experience as the player figures out the correct route to lead Him alive to his soulmate.

This title has an innovative mechanic that allows the player to defy gravity – as each character is the source of their own gravity, once Him reaches a wall or is about to fall from a platform’s edge, the whole level flips. What was before the end of the road now creates a plethora of news possibilities of getting to Her. It is possible to make walls turn into floors and vice versa.

And there is something different about this game. It was developed by the indie companies Game Nacional and Guaru – being made by Brazilian developers will certainly add a special touch to it.

More details about Him & Her is available at the Nintendo Switch’s eShop.

Jim L. McEnerney Discusses How Lacrosse Players Can Practice During the Pandemic

Jim L McEnerney Kansas City

The Pandemic Might Require Social Distancing but Jim L. McEnerney Shares Ideas on How Lacrosse Players Can Still Practice

KANSAS CITY, KS, UNITED STATES, June 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Many lacrosse players have had to re-think the way that they practice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Coaches around the country are getting creative to ensure that players focus on their skillset. Jim L. McEnerney of Kansas City, a lacrosse coach that has had an NCAA National Lacrosse Championship Team, explores some of the ways that players can practice.

Jim L. McEnerney explains that one of the best ways for players to make use of social distancing is to focus on their stick work. Various drills can be done to improve progressions. Jim McEnerney also recommends that players look at YouTube and the US Lacrosse site to watch videos. Players from national teams are offering plenty of tutorials and drills that can be followed.

Although teams cannot meet on the field, they can still communicate. Jim McEnerney of Kansas City says that a significant amount of the performance on the field has to do with the way that a team is able to bond off the field. As such, lacrosse players should be communicating with their teammates on a regular basis. Coach Jim L. McEnerney recommends setting up Zoom calls so that players can catch up socially and also talk about what they’re doing in order to improve their skillsets.

As many parks around the country are starting to open up again, Jim L. McEnerney has talked about going out to the open spaces in order to focus on partner passing and coaching. This can be done as a meet-up with another player or by asking a parent or sibling to help. It is possible to maintain a six-foot social distance, though it can add an extra dimension to practice because of having someone to work with.

There’s also some practice that can be done indoors. Jim McEnerney of Kansas City, who has coached on a high school level for years, recognizes how video games have been able to help. Many of his players will use PS4 and other game consoles to work on the overall field dynamics. It can make it easier to understand the rules and see how different strategies can be effective on the field. Jim L. McEnerney suggests such games as NLL Lacrosse and Casey Powell Lacrosse 18.

Jim McEnerney of Kansas City understands that players are frustrated that they cannot get out and play in their championships or even have a friendly scrimmage in a local park. However, he says that it’s critical for lacrosse players to continue practicing and training in order to keep their skills as sharp as possible.

Jim L. McEnerney is based in Overland Park, Kansas. He is the Director of Marketing for the McEnerney Group. Additionally, he has been named Coach of the Year for his time that he spent with the Notre Dame de Sion High School lacrosse team.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every Western art lover's attention will turn toward the same place on July 25th, as The Coeur d'Alene Art Auction holds their 35th annual Fine Western & American Art auction from the Grand Sierra Resort in Reno. The catalog will include 264 selections of unparalleled quality, representing the most revered names the genre has to offer. Online bidding will only be available exclusively through Bidsquare (www.bidsquare.com).

Bidsquare, the exclusive online bidding platform for The Coeur d'Alene Art Auction for the fifth consecutive year, is prepared to get back in the saddle on auction day. Conveniently, the online buyers premium is the same as the floor bidders premium, an aspect that loosens the reigns and allows online buyers to bid without a moments hesitation. This year for the first time online bidders will be able to experience the excitement of the live auction room through live audio/video streaming. Bidders can participate with live bids online while watching the auction in the convenience of their own home.

[Henry Farny, Nomads, 1902; Estimate $1,500,000-2,500,000]
Museum-quality paintings will cross the block, headlined by a pair of masterpieces by Henry Farny and Thomas Moran. Nomads, by Henry Farny, is considered to be the finest example of the artist’s work. Farny only did a handful of large oils, which makes the painting a once-in-a-lifetime collecting opportunity. Estimated at $1,500,000-2,500,000, it comes from a private collection and has never been to auction.

[Thomas Moran, Green River, Wyoming, 1883; Estimate $1,000,000-1,500,000]
Green River, Wyoming is a magnificent oil by Thomas Moran. Painted in 1883, it has all the luminescence Moran was known for in one of his most soughtafter subjects. Estimated at $1,000,000-1,500,000, the fresh-to-market painting is certain to generate fireworks in the room when it crosses the block.

[Edward S. Curtis; The North American Indian, Portfolios 1-20; and Vols. 1-20 (displayed above); Stickley Brothers, American Oak Book Cabinet; Estimate $1,500,000-2,500,000]
One of the most historically important lots ever featured at the Coeur d’Alene Art Auction will be offered with Edward Curtis’ The North American Indian, a significant portfolio of works cataloging every major Native American tribe west of the Mississippi. The lot, which includes Curtis’ personal American oak book cabinet designed to house the portfolio, carries a presale estimate of $1,500,000-2,500,000. The New York Herald hailed his study as “the most gigantic undertaking since the making of the King James edition of the Bible.” For its completion, the project required the assistance of a vast array of patrons – most notably, President Theodore Roosevelt (who wrote the foreword to The North American Indian) and famed financier J.P. Morgan – plus countless researchers, scientists, editors, master craftsmen, interpreters, tribal elders, and medicine men. Of the proposed 500 editions of The North American Indian, only 272 were realized – most of which remain in institutional collections.

[Charles M. Russell, Blackfeet War Party, circa 1896; Estimate: $200,000-300,000]
Coeur d’Alene has long been the specialist in selling works by Charles M. Russell. Montana’s favorite artist has been a mainstay of the auction for decades, and this year features a large selection of his works. Blackfeet War Party showcases the high action Russell was known for, and is estimated at $200,000-300,000. It will be joined by Planning the Attack ($150,000-250,000), With a Good Hoss under Him… ($150,000-250,000), along with other exemplary works.

[Edward Borein, Trail Boss; Estimate: $50,000-75,000]
The finest painting to come to market in decades by Edward Borein, Trail Boss, is a large watercolor, measuring 15 × 20 inches, and is considered to be his best work. It comes from a prominent single-owner collection of Boreins, and carries an estimate of $50,000-75,000. Additional historical works include E. William Gollings’ The Red Man’s Directions ($250,000-350,000); William Herbert Dunton’s The Cowpuncher ($100,0000-150,000); Frank Tenney Johnson’s Moonrise over the Mesa ($150,000-250,000); Edgar S. Paxson’s Buffalo Hunt ($60,000-90,000); and many others. An important single-owner collection of over ten works by Olaf Seltzer will also be offered.

[Victor Higgins, New Mexico Zinnias; Estimate $200,000-300,000]
Taos artists have always been a mainstay of the Coeur d’Alene Art Auction, and this year features rare works such as Victor Higgins’ New Mexico Zinnias ($200,000-300,000) and Ernest Blumenschein’s White Sun ($150,000-250,000).

As each bag moves down the conveyer belt into the X-ray, carefully check the image on your screen for prohibited and dangerous items. Press the corresponding button Green, Yellow or Red to determine whether the traveler’s bag is clear or will require a secondary inspection.

An optional zoom mode allows you to check the bags on a larger X-ray image. The "?" icon allows you to see silhouettes of the common prohibited and dangerous items.

Work through seven progressively harder day shifts.

Optionally shares your accomplishments with Facebook, Twitter, email, or instant messaging (on supported platforms).

The iOS version is a Universal App which means it supports iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, including standard, Retina, and iPhone X displays. The other versions work on most common Android models, Apple TV, Windows 10 PC, and Xbox One.

There is a ripe appetite for quality, fresh-to-the-market collectibles. Value is largely dependent on two factors: historical significance and condition level. The top sellers combined the two.”

NEW HAMBURG, ONTARIO, CANADA, June 25, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A Fry visible “Mae West” gas pump made in America in the 1920s sold for $7,800, and a Kuntz tin lithographed beer tray made in Canada and featuring a St. Bernard dog graphic brought $7,500 in an online-only Advertising, Toys & Historic Objects sale held June 20th by Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. All prices quoted are in Canadian dollars.

The 699-lot auction was packed with advertising and signs, toys, general store items, petroliana (gas station collectibles), automobilia, breweriana and historical ephemera, much of it Canadian in origin. There was no live gallery bidding due to the pandemic, but over 400 people registered to bid online and collectively placed 6,658 bids. Overall, the auction grossed a robust $294,558.

The Fry gas pump, 9 feet tall, was stamped “Guaranteed Liquid Measure Co., Pittsburgh, Pa.” It was mechanically untested and had undergone heavy repairs, but that didn’t deter eager bidders. The 13-inch diameter antique Kuntz tray, one of Canada’s most coveted beer trays, had gorgeous color and gloss, showing a detailed image of a St. Bernard dog behind a bottle of Kuntz’s lager.

Other top lots included a Coca-Cola school policeman sign, 60 inches tall, the “fishtail” logo version, with two lithographed metal panels standing on a cast metal base ($3,900); and a J.M. Fortier Cigar framed lithograph, housed in a 35 ½ inch by 27 ½ inch gilt plaster frame with molded tobacco leaves, marked “Heffron & Phelps, Lithographers” (N.Y.) lower right ($3,000).

“Our online auction platform has proven advantageous during these uncertain times,” said Ethan Miller of Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. “The June auction attracted nearly seven thousand bids from within Canada and around the globe. There is no question that the enthusiasm among the collector community is alive and well – if not stronger than before. The sale was a huge success.”

Mr. Miller said he’s seen growing international interest for typically ‘Canadian’ items, pointing out that the Kuntz beer tray went to an international bidder. He added, “There is a ripe appetite for quality, fresh-to-the-market collectibles. Value is largely dependent on two factors: historical significance and condition level. Many of Saturday’s top sellers were a combination of the two.”

Following are additional highlights from the auction. Internet bidding was facilitated by the popular online bidding platform LiveAuctioneers.com, as well as the Miller & Miller website (www.MillerandMillerAuctions.com). Telephone and absentee bids were also accepted.

A Goodyear 8-foot-by-2-foot single-sided porcelain sign, made in Canada in the 1930s and marked “Property of Goodyear Co. General Steel Wares Product” on the lower edge, fetched $3,000. The same winning bid was made for an 1880s Canada Paint Company paper lithograph under glass in the original marked frame, 35 ½ inches by 25 ½ inches and free of restoration.

Gas station collectibles (petroliana) proved irresistible to bidders. A few of the top sellers are as follows. All three realized identical selling prices of $3,000.

• An Arno Model 31A pedestal air meter, made in America in the 1940s and featuring a lighted case, 62 inches tall, manufactured by Romort Mfg. Co. (Oakfield, Wisconsin).
• A Clearvision visible gas pump, made in Toronto, Canada in the 1930s, 10 feet tall, with the base, nozzle and brass plate all stamped, repainted, good looking but not functioning.
• A Clearvision visible gas pump, also made in Canada in the 1930s, including hail screen, with base, brass plate and nozzle all stamped, repainted, condition issues, not functioning.

A Butler Dawes Brewery black horse statue, 18 inches tall, plaster cast in the 1930s by the famed Woodstock, Ontario artist Ross Butler (1907-1995), incised with Butler’s name, galloped off for $2,400; and a rare O’Keefe’s ‘Greek Scene’ tin lithographed beer tray (Canadian 1920s), marked “Niagara Lith. Co., Buffalo” lower edge, 13 ¼ inches by 10 ½ inches, changed hands for $2,160.

A rare, early De Laval Cream Separator single-sided porcelain flange sign, made in the U.S. in the 1920s with text, “World’s Standard, Over 1,500,000 in Use”, 26 inches by 18 inches, made $1,920; while a top lot in the toys category was a Supertest Minnitoy (by Otaco, Ltd., Orilla, Ontario) pressed steel oil tanker from the 1940s, with the original paint and decals ($2,400).

Returning to petroliana, a Canadian Oil Companies White Rose porcelain sign (Canadian 1940s) probably from a bulk distribution plant, 13 inches by 8 inches, free of restoration, finished at $2,040; and White Rose 4-foot diameter two-sided porcelain dealer sign with original ring, one side retaining excellent gloss while the other side exhibits chalkiness, hammered for $1,920.
