Three-toed horses reveal the secret of the Tibetan Plateau uplift                                        
                                                                 
            The Tibetan Plateau is the youngest and highest plateau on Earth, and its elevation reaches one-third of the height of the troposphere, with profound dynamic and thermal effects on atmospheric circulation and climate. The uplift of the Tibetan Plateau was an important factor of global climate change during the late Cenozoic and strongly influenced the development of the Asian monsoon system. However, there have been heated debates about the history and process of Tibetan Plateau uplift, especially elevations in different geological ages.
In PNAS Early Edition online April 23, 2012, Dr. Tao Deng from Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and his team report a well-preserved skeleton of a 4.6 million-year-old three-toed horse (Hipparion zandaense) from the Zanda Basin, southwestern Tibet. Morphological features indicate that the Zanda horse was a cursorial horse that lived in alpine steppe habitats. Because this open landscape would be situated above the timberline on the steep southern margin of the Tibetan Plateau, the elevation of the Zanda Basin 4.6 Ma ago was estimated to be ~4,000 m above sea level using an adjustment to the temperature in the middle Pliocene as well as comparison with modern vegetation vertical zones. Thus, Deng and his team conclude that the southwestern Tibet achieved the present-day elevation in the mid-Pliocene.
Fossils of the three-toed horse genus Hipparion that have been found on the Tibetan Plateau have provided concrete evidence for studying the uplift of the plateau, including a skull with associated mandible of Hipparion zandaense from Zanda. In August 2009 a three-toed horse skeleton was excavated from the Zanda Basin, and its dental morphology confirmed the assignment to H. zandaense.

This has to be the lamest pregnancy announcement video in “celebrity” history.

Former Backstreet Boy AJ McLean and his wife Rochelle took to YouTube (YouTube!) to announce that they are expecting a baby. Everyone knows there are only three ways to properly announce a Hollywood pregnancy:

  • A dignified press release to People Magazine. (Ahem.)
  • The Reese Witherspoon baby bump non-announcement announcement. More ostentatiously, the Beyoncé VMAs baby bump belly rub.
  •  Via Oprah.

Also, I just find it so sad that AJ McLean is still referring to himself as a Backstreet Boy, as if that gives him any credibility whatsoever. YouTube is really letting anybody in these days.

This was the week our garden turned into a lush forest. Usually it happens in May, but we’re wayyyy ahead of schedule this year. Note my sweet slippers, which I probably shouldn’t be wearing outdoors. (One sign you’re getting old: you put on your slippers every day when you get home from work.) Also, did you guys see the article in the Times about NYC rents being higher than ever? The couple featured is like ‘OMG we were sooo devastated when our LL raised the rent on our West Village doorman apt, so we had no choice but to move to Dumbo where we bought a $1 million condo (with 250k down) — it was hard, but it worked out.’ (And seriously straight ppl, how do live with yourselves when you pose for pictures like that?) Which I mention because if you’re willing to live in an ‘unappealing’ neighborhood (which is NYT code for ‘non-white’) like Washington Heights (for example), you can still buy a big house for < $1 million, and most of the apartments are still rent-stabilized, which means the LL can only raise the rent a stipulated amount each year. The disadvantage of course being that you can’t really pretend your NYC life is an ivory-fresh HBO show.

NPR reported this morning on a traffic jam in California caused by an algorithmic glitch “accidentally summon[ing] 1,200 people to jury duty on the same morning”. An excellent reminder of the tendency of algorithmic dysfunction to manifest as physical dysfunction, and (at a relatively small scale) of the potentially disproportionate impact of glitches when they are translated from dataspace into an infrastructural system. The glitch may be as simple as having accidentally swapped the 0 indicating “do not come in” for the 1 indicating “come in”, but the resulting jam is rendered in aluminum autobodies and on asphalt corridors where it is much more difficult to clear than it was to create.

I liked this quote so much I made this thing.

 “It’s called being part of a society. Not everything goes your way. I don’t let my kids eat ice cream every night. They wish I did, but even they know: that doesn’t make me the Hitler of ice cream
