Jurassic World – What is Fact and What is Fiction? Paleontologist Anusuya Chinsamy-Turan Explains

Famous Dinosaurs of AfricaAnusuya Chinsamy-Turan, South African vertebrate paleontologist and author of Famous Dinosaurs of Africa, has written an op-ed for Daily Maverick in which she separates fact from fiction in the Hollywood blockbuster Jurassic World.

“Like any good science fiction story, there are embedded elements of scientific fact in Jurassic World,” Chinsamy-Turan writes. She highlights the hits and misses in the movie and concludes with a sincere wish: “It is my earnest hope that, despite the embellishments, Jurassic World – like the original Jurassic Park – will inspire a new generation of paleontologists and dinosaur enthusiasts.”

Read her article and be schooled by a real paleontologist:

‘Nothing in Jurassic World is natural!’ proclaims Henry Wu, the chief scientist in Colin Trevorrow’s Jurassic World. And to complicate matters even further, he explains how even the DNA used to ‘create’ the animals is not authentic dinosaur DNA: gaps in the ancient genome have been filled with that of different living animals. In a movie such as this the public is often left wondering what is fact and what is fiction. Allow me to unravel some of this confusion.

Kyk na die voorskou van Hollywood in my huis – Leandie du Randt se jongste fliek

Gemaklik in jou eie lyfComfortable in Your Own SkinLeandie du Randt kraai koning(in) op Afrikaanse skerms. Van die kassie tot die silwerskerm, tydskrif rakke tot sosiale media bladsye – haar naam is oral.

Du Randt se boek, Gemaklik in jou eie lyf: Wees die beste jy, is dalk gerig op tienermeisies, maar dit bied wysheid en raad wat op enige vrou van toepassing kan wees.

Hanlie Retief het onlangs met Du Randt gesels om uit te vind wie die meisie met die verlengde blonde hare en dinamiese persoonlikheid nou eintlik is. “Kyk, moenie Little Miss Sun­shine op haar blonde spiraalkrulle takseer nie. Leandie is swaargewig, al weeg sy soveel soos drie Mariebeskuitjies,” skryf Retief.

Du Randt se jongste fliek – Hollywood in my huis – begin more landwyd in teaters draai. Sy speel die rol van Angeligue, die hoofpoppie van die skool en ook aan die stuur van die matriekafskeid-komitee. Sy kom uit een van die welaf-gesinne in die buurt. Sy weet alles én beter as enigeen en weet presies hoe om mense om haar pinkie te draai. As sy nie haar sin kry nie, word sy baie slinks.

Kyk na die voorskou van die fliek:

Lees Retief se artikel om Du Randt beter te leer ken:

Hey girl! gooi Leandie haar fave Ivanka-lyn as sy kaalvoet naderstap, hierdie pop van ’n meisie met ’n strik in haar hare, plip-plip-plip op Stark Films se gepoleerde marmerwit sementvloer.

Howzit! Sy pluk so ’n lekker Brakpan-twang uit dié lyn van haar Binnelanders-karakter, ­Ivanka.

“Ek luv’it om vir Van te twang. I-Vên-ka sal sê: Gaan haal die kar uit die ghê-raash. En moenie my ien-sult nie!”

Leandie dra vandag ’n vin­tage-rokkie. ’n Vaal 1980’s-weeskind-rokkie, tot by haar kuiltjie toegeknoop, waarskynlik by die Neighbourgoods-mark in Braamfontein losgeslaan waar sy en haar verloofde, Bouwer Bosch, Saterdae met pêlle rondhang voor hulle huis toe slenter om horisontaal moewies te kyk terwyl sy haar mond volprop met Diddle Daddle-karamelspringmielies “en dan soos ’n kind uitpass van die sugar rush”.

How to Spot the Modus Operandi and Psyche of a Bully – Gail Dore Explains (Video)

Bully-proofGail Dore, author of Bully-proof, was recently interviewed by Samm Marshall on Morning Live about her book.

In the interview, Marshall asks Dore about what is needed to create a bully-proof environment.

“That is a big question,” the author says. In short, according to Dore, bullying needs to be recognised for what it is and the environment needs to be completely intolerant of it. She goes on to explain the modus operandi and psyche of a bully.
