World’s largest Tyrannosaurus found in CanadaThe Tyrannosaurus rex is one of the most recognizable dinosaurs of all time. It's played both hero and villain many times in pop culture, and it's almost universally portrayed as a hulking brute of unimaginable power. The jury is still out on whether the massive ancient creature was primarily a predator or scavenger, but we're still learning more about the species, including how large it was capable of growing.A T. rex specimen found in Canada is helping researchers nail down that last point. It's the largest rex skeleton ever discovered, and it's estimated that the animal that left the fossils behind weighed in at an extraordinary 19,500 pounds.As National Geographic reports, the skeleton is approximately 65% complete, giving paleontologists a good idea of the overall size of the animal when it was alive. The specimen, which has been nicknamed "Scotty," is believed to have lived to the ripe old age of 28, or perhaps a bit older. That sounds pretty young to us, but in T. rex terms that's a long, long life.The creature, which the researchers describe as "extremely large" and "robust," is the largest T. rex ever discovered, but it wasn't a particularly new find. Scotty was originally uncovered way back in 1991, but its bones were so embedded in the hard rock that it has taken over a decade and a half for scientists to piece it together into a larger form that could be studied.Scotty lived roughly 68 million years ago when Earth was quite a bit different than it is today. Its incredible size would have made the animal an intimidating sight, but it might not have used its raw power to actively hunt prey. There's plenty of debate in scientific circles regarding how the T. rex species lived, and it's possible that massive beasts like Scotty were more comfortable sampling dead carcasses than running down or ambushing their own meals.

Senator uses Star Wars posters, image of Reagan riding a dinosaur to blast Green New DealSen. Mike Lee took an unconventional route in blasting the Green New Deal. The Utah Republican honed his inner troll while using everything from posters showing Aquaman and Star Wars characters to quotes from Austin Powers to paint the bill as "ridiculous"

Novartis gets U.S. approval for new drug to treat multiple sclerosisNovartis AG won U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval on Tuesday for its new multiple sclerosis drug Mayzent, as the Swiss drugmaker seeks to tap a new group of patients in whom the neurological disease has shifted from intermittent attacks to a gradually worsening progression. The drug was approved for use in adults with relapsing forms of the disease, including clinically isolated syndrome, relapsing-remitting disease, and active secondary progressive disease. Mayzent is a synthetic derivative of Gilenya that has a similar way of working but which Novartis has modified to try to reduce side effects like a slow heart rate.

Supermarket shoppers who buy lots of foods on 'two for one' deals more likely to be obese, study findsSupermarket shoppers who buy lots of foods on “two for one” deals are far more likely to be obese, a major study suggests. Cancer Research UK found that those with highest consumption of discounted foods were at 50 per cent greater risk of obesity, compared with those with low take-up of such deals. The study of more than 16,000 households found almost one in three food and drink items in UK supermarket baskets were bought on promotion. And the discounts were far more likely to be applied to unhealthy foods, with almost half of all chocolate, crisps, popcorn, and savoury snacks are being bought on promotion. Shoppers whose baskets contained between 40 and 80 per cent of goods on special offer were 54 per cent more likely to be obese than those with a maximum 20 per cent of foods on such deals. Those with highest take-up of the deals bought 30 per cent less fruit, and nearly 25 per cent fewer vegetables than those shunning deals.The study follows a Government consultation on proposals to ban “buy one, get one free” deals on unhealthy foods and supermarket “guilt lanes” as part of its childhood obesity strategy. Overweight parents are more likely to have overweight children One in five children are overweight or obese when they start primary school, rising to around one in three when they leave. Research has found that obesity increases the risk of 13 different types of cancer including bowel and breast disease. Alison Cox, director of cancer prevention at Cancer Research UK, said: “The government’s proposed 9pm ban on junk food ads is a step forward in fighting childhood obesity. Now we want to see restrictions on price promotions for unhealthy food and drink items, as well as those strategically-placed at checkouts. This will help families to make healthier choices. “There isn’t one magic fix for the problem, but removing these incentives to buy unhealthy food is key to changing it.”

South America resists electric vehicles as local fuels remain in favor"The future of Argentina's energy is natural gas," said Cristiano Rattazzi, who heads the country's unit of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, as well as its automakers trade group. Argentina's natural gas production is expected to increase dramatically as foreign oil companies and state-owned YPF pour investment into Vaca Muerta, one of the world's largest shale gas reserves.

Green New Deal: Republican tells Ocasio-Cortez solution to climate change is to ‘fall in love, get married, and have some kids’A Republican senator has told Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that the true solution to climate change is to “fall in love, get married, and have some kids”. As the Senate voted against a measure sponsored by Ms Ocasio-Cortez and others that sought to push the US towards the use of renewable energy, Republican Mike Lee said their plan – the so-called Green New Deal – was “ridiculous”. During a speech that he illustrated with pictures and posters of dinosaurs, cartoon characters, babies and Aquaman, the senator from Utah claimed he was treating Ms Ocasio-Cortez’s proposal “with the seriousness it deserves”.

US Senate rejects Green New Deal in Republican show voteUS Senate Republican leaders forced a stunt vote Tuesday on a climate change measure they ridicule, seeking to corner Democratic presidential hopefuls over an expensive, economy-upending plan proposed by the party's liberal left wing. The chamber easily rejected the Green New Deal, a proposal offered by progressive Democrats that would dramatically shift the United States away from fossil fuels toward renewable energy in an ambitious effort to zero out greenhouse gas emissions within a decade. It is less a hardened political policy than a blueprint of transformational action to combat the threat of climate change, and several Democrats running to challenge President Donald Trump next year have signed on to the non-binding plan.

Apple Dodges One Import Ban in Qualcomm Fight, Faces AnotherThe U.S. International Trade Commission on Tuesday invalidated a Qualcomm patent for a battery-saving feature. Earlier in the day, a separate trade judge said Apple infringed a different Qualcomm patent and recommended certain older models of the iPhone be banned. Qualcomm is hoping a victory, particularly an import ban, could give it greater leverage in technology licensing negotiations.

Unvaccinated children face public space ban in New York measles outbreakA New York suburb has banned children not vaccinated against measles from public spaces, such as schools and shopping malls, as it fights the state's worst outbreak in decades of the potentially deadly disease. Rockland County declared a state of emergency on Tuesday and said the ban would remain in place for 30 days or until unvaccinated children get the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) shot. The Rockland announcement follows measles outbreaks in California, Illinois, Texas and Washington and is part of a global resurgence of the viral infection, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
