From animatronic dinosaurs to [Jeff Goldblum]'s prosthetic chest hair, Jurassic Park is known for its practical effects and props. While it's not as fancy as a breathing triceratops, YouTube's god of resin casting has recreated one of the more endearing props from this movie. [Peter Brown] and [Pocket83] made a replica of the amber-topped cane carried by John Hammond, and it took him two years to do it. The mosquito in amber' walking cane prop from Jurassic Park is just what you think it is a large mosquito-looking bug trapped in 100 million year old amber. Of course, finding such a chunk of amber with the included mosquito would cost a fortune, so [Peter] turned to polyurethane resin. This block of resin was cast in two halves, with a mosquito eater' (or a crane fly) embedded in the middle. It took two years for [Peter] to cast this block of amber, but really all but two weeks of that was waiting for a few adult crane flys to appear.

He declined to comment on his plans for life after Disney. Iger also talked with enthusiasm about the potential of virtual reality and location-based experiences. He described a planned attraction for Avatar Land, which is scheduled to open in Orlando in May, in which you sit atop the banshee, the flying creature from James Cameron's film. You feel a pulse and breathing. And a screen comes up and you are basically in Pandora. In 3D, you feel like you are right in it, said Iger. We spent a lot of time and money on robotics with expressions. Theres a Na'vi that has expressions you wont believe. He added that the planned Star Wars Lands (in both Anaheim, Calif., and Orlando) will include an experience that would allow the patron to get into the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon and go for a joyrides.

Alan Martin 26 min 29 sec ago Life Culture As a child, I remember the basics of what we should do in an emergency being drilled into us from a young age. I never had to act upon this knowledge, fortunately, but it was always there if required: grab the phone, dial 999 and recite the address I’d been trained to remember. Things are a little bit different now, and although the story of the South London four-year-old using his unconscious mother’s thumb print to unlock her iPhone and using Siri to phone emergency services is an uplifting one, it says more about the quick thinking of the child in question than the technology being easy to use in an emergency. First a quick recap: Roman, a four-year-old boy from Kenley in South London, found his mother unconscious and not breathing. He used her thumbprint to unlock the iPhone and then asked Siri to phone 999, where he promptly told the police officer operating the line that she was dead.

House Republican leaders scrambling to buck up wavering members had portrayed the vote as the only shot to eliminate the GOP’s longtime bogeyman — and as an essential show of support for President Donald Trump. But in fact, they have several options to salvage the repeal effort after they couldn't muster 215 votes on Thursday. Here are a half dozen: Delay the vote longer The most straightforward thing is for leaders to punt. The vote has already been delayed at least until Friday and it could be put off longer. A delay isn't necessarily costly, beyond the bad optics and robbing the GOP of the opportunity to strike a blow against Obamacare on the seventh anniversary of its passage. A postponement could buy Speaker Paul Ryan and the Trump administration some breathing room if they think they’re close to a deal with the two dozen or so House Freedom Caucus members still opposed to the bill — or with some moderates who could still be swayed into the “yescolumn.

In June 2016, she was sentenced to 10 years in prison and 10 years of probation. Robinson apparently knew Londyn had ingested the opioid but did not call for medical help, according to prosecutors. It was an older sibling who called 911 to say her little sister was not breathing. The Connecticut Department of Children and Families was cited in a 2015 report for failing to adequately identify risks to Londyn and Robinson's three other children, given her history of mental health, substance abuse and child-welfare complaints. Besides her protective nature, Londyn loved making people laugh, Etheredge said. "She would put underwear on her head and act goofy and silly," her grandmother said. "She loved to explore." Etheredge, of Indian Trail, North Carolina, said one of her lasting memories of her grandchild was a visit to the local park. "The last time I saw her, she was running around and trying to catch up with the birds," she said.

We love Adele. Everyone loves Adele, it's a given. But even the world's most adorable Brit herself would call this loving yet entrepreneurial gesture a bit, you know, much. After infiltrating every aspect of Australian media with her whirlwind presence recently, Adele has also distributed her fair share of carbon dioxide to the land Down Under, via breathing. And so it is that one enterprising, evil genius has grabbed an empty ziplock bag and thrown it on eBay with a label that reads: "Legit bag of air. Content: Adele. 13/3/2017 Adelaide Oval."

Amy Goodman | Democracy Now! | (Video News Clip) | Transcript via Democracy Now! ALPHONSE MADDIN: In January of 2009, I was working as a commercial truck driver for TransAm Trucking Incorporated of Olathe, Kansas. I was hauling a load of meat through the state of Illinois. After stopping to resolve a discrepancy in the location to refuel, the brakes on the trailer froze. I contacted my employer, and they arranged for a repair unit to come to my location. I expected that help would arrive within an hour. I awoke three hours later to discover that I could not feel my feet, my skin was burning and cracking, my speech was slurred, and I was having trouble breathing. The temperature that night was roughly 27 degrees Fahrenheit below zero. The heater in the cabin was not producing heat, and the temperature gauge in the truck was reading minus-7 degrees below zero.
