The dubious science of online dating

Kriegstein notified American paleontologist Paul Sereno of the specimen, who proposed it represented a subadult of a new species from the Yixian Formation of China.Sereno arranged to publish a description of the specimen and to have it sent to China, from where he assumed it had been smuggled.Peter Larson, president of the Black Hills Institute of Geological Research, Inc., a private fossil excavation and supply company, inspected the fossil and told Nature that he concluded it was a juvenile Tarbosaurus.Because the specimen was donated by a collector without detailed provenance information, Larson doubted the assigned age, which was based only on the Lycoptera vertebra and mollusk shell found alongside the dinosaur fossil.The team's efforts, despite the challenge, seems to be working — the first changes alone resulted in a doubling of "yes" matches on the site.

While Sereno had claimed that the vertebrae of Raptorex were nearly fused, and that the bone histology of the specimen indicated it was a subadult about six years old, Fowler and colleagues argued that Sereno and his team had misinterpreted the growth stage data, and found that the specimen was actually a young juvenile only about three years old.

Nearly all of us have spent time pondering what makes two people a compatible couple, but few have put as much time, money and Ph. When the site started in 1995, online dating was an obscure (and somewhat dubious) practice.

Now one in every five new relationships starts with online dating, according to a study it commissioned.

Raptorex is a dubious genus of tyrannosaurid dinosaur.

Its fossil remains consist of a single juvenile specimen probably uncovered in Mongolia, or possibly northeastern China. kriegsteini, described in 2009 by Sereno and colleagues.
