Editing by David Gregorio and Tom Brown) This story has not been edited by Firstpost staff and is generated by auto-feed Artist’s reconstruction of Stromatoveris an ancient marine animal J Hoyal Cuthill These half-billion-year-old creatures were animals—but unlike any known today By Colin BarrasAug 8 2018 7:00 AM So-called Ediacaran organisms have puzzled biologists for decades To the untrained eye they look like fossilized plants in tube or frond shapes up to 2 meters long These strange life forms dominated Earth’s seas half a billion years ago and scientists have long struggled to figure out whether they’re algae fungi or even an entirely different kingdom of life that failed to survive Now two paleontologists think they have finally established the identity of the mysterious creatures: They were animals some of which could move around but they were unlike any living on Earth today Scientists first discovered the Ediacaran organisms in 1946 in South Australia’s Ediacara Hills To date researchers have identified about 200 different types in ancient rocks across the world Almost all appear to have died out by 541 million years ago just before fossils of familiar animals like sponges and the ancestors of crabs and lobsters appeared in an event dubbed the Cambrian explosion One reason these creatures have proved so tricky to place in the tree of life is that some of them had an anatomy unique in nature Their bodies were made up of branched fronds with a strange fractal architecture in which the frond subunits resembled small versions of the whole frond Jennifer Hoyal Cuthill at the Tokyo Institute of Technology and the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom and Jian Han at Northwest University in Xi’an China have now found key evidence that the Ediacaran organisms were animals They analyzed more than 200 fossils of a 518-million-year-old marine species named Stromatoveris psygmoglena Paleontologists had previously concluded that the 10-centimeter-tall species was some sort of animal—in part says Hoyal Cuthill because it was found alongside other known animals and all of the fossils are preserved in a similar way Hoyal Cuthill and Han argue S psygmoglena was also an Ediacaran organism a rare “survivor” that somehow clung on through the Cambrian explosion The Stromatoveris fossils which were all unearthed in Yunnan province in southwestern China are beautifully preserved Hoyal Cuthill says As she examined specimen after specimen she became increasingly excited “I began thinking: My goodness I’ve seen these features before” Like some of the strange Ediacaran organisms Stromatoveris was made up of several radially repeated branched fronds with a fractal internal architecture A fossil of one of the 200 or so types of Stromatoveris J Hoyal Cuthill To find out what sort of animals Stromatoveris and the other Ediacaran organisms were Hoyal Cuthill and Han ran a computer analysis that uses anatomical features to reconstruct evolutionary relationships They found that Stromatoveris and the other Ediacaran organisms don’t belong to any living animal group or “phylum” Instead they cluster on their own branch in the animal evolutionary tree between the sponges and complex animals with a digestive cavity like worms mollusks and vertebrates the team reports today in Palaeontology “This branch the Petalonamae could well be its own phylum and it apparently lacks any living descendants” Hoyal Cuthill says “It looks very likely [the Ediacaran organisms] are animals” says Simon Conway Morris a paleontologist at the University of Cambridge who worked with Han on the first description of Stromatoveris in 2006 but who was not involved in the current study At that point there were just a handful of known Stromatoveris fossils The researchers argued that they were similar to some Ediacaran organisms although others later questioned that link Conway Morris says the new study “extends the story very nicely” by exploring the Ediacaran nature of Stromatoveris in more detail Geobiologist Simon Darroch at Vanderbilt University in Nashville is also comfortable with the idea that the Ediacaran organisms were animals and that a few survived into the Cambrian But on a first look he is not convinced that Stromatoveris was one such survivor; he thinks the evidence that it had the fractal architecture of an Ediacaran organism isn’t strong—yet he’s open to persuasion If the new conclusion settles one mystery though it introduces another The Ediacaran organisms represent the first major explosion of complex life on Earth and they thrived for 30 million years Their demise has been linked to the appearance of animals in the Cambrian Explosion Hoyal Cuthill says But that simple explanation doesn’t work as well if Ediacaran organisms were animals themselves and some were still alive tens of millions of years later “It’s not quite so neat anymore” she says “As to what led to their eventual extinction I think it’s very hard to say”When Beyoncé made her show-stopping appearance on Lip Sync Battle alongside Channing Tatum earlier this year she was exactly the ephemeral mystery youd expect her to be Tatum dropped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday to promote his new film Hail Caesar,The Department of Petroleum Resources has appealed to the two unions in the oil and gas sector to shield their swords by calling off the ongoing industrial action to end the sufferings of motorists “If militants can target anyone in Charwani area.

(@MamataOfficial) June 14 2017 Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley had stated on Monday that the Centre would not extend financial help to the states in waiving the farm loans and made it clear that the cost had to be borne by them The Centre’s stance assumes significance in the backdrop of the Maharashtra government announcing a farm loan waiver as violent protests were staged by the farmers in Madhya Pradesh recently demanding a loan waiver It was an unprecedented and unforgettable sight that will forever be stamped on the memory cells of all who were privileged to see it live even on television — a mixed Indian badminton team astride the topmost rung of the Commonwealth Games (CWG) winners’ rostrum admiring the glittering yellow-coloured medals they had earned by dint of their consistently strong and self-confident performances over the preceding five days As the Indian tricolor rose slowly and gracefully to the strains of the country’s national anthem to the highest point below the roof of the Carrara Sports and Leisure Centre on Australia’s Gold Coast the likes of Saina Nehwal and Kidambi Srikanth looked moist-eyed upwards trying to soak in the fact that they had just pooled their talents to win for India the country’s first ever gold medal in an international badminton team event No praise can be too high for their momentous achievement although admittedly the opposition at the CWG is comparatively tepid in the absence of several of the sport’s top guns who are not members of the British Commonwealth and India had been proclaimed as the strongest team in the competition with the Badminton World Federation (BWF) giving them top billing India won badminton team gold for the first time in CWG history AP The triumph must really be viewed in proper historical perspective in that India has never before been considered a badminton team heavyweight Nor has it ever before possessed such a powerful well-balanced team The fact remains that the best an Indian squad has achieved in its efforts in the badminton arena at earlier editions of the Games has been a silver medal showing in the 2010 version on home ground in New Delhi On that occasion the Indians had gone down in the final to Malaysia who had won the title in the 2006 edition of the quadrennial Games as well and were to go on to win in 2014 at Glasgow to complete a unique hat-trick of triumphs in this mixed team event that is run along the lines of the Sudirman Cup In other words needing all-round strength in all five disciplines of the sport – the two singles and three doubles India had also stumbled in Glasgow four years back while conceding the bronze medal play-off to Singapore by a narrow 2-3 margin Pullela Gopichand’s crack side on this occasion gained sweet revenge for that reverse by beating the Singaporeans by a 3-1 scoreline in the semi-finals on Saturday although the bland scoreline does not tell the true tale of just how much the Indians were made to sweat for their win The one match that India conceded this time was the men’s doubles after the youthful pair of Satwiksairaj Rankireddy and Chirag Shetty came within just two points of victory in the second game against Danny Bawa Chrisnanta and Terry Hee after bagging the first but could not close it out and were totally outmanoeuvred in the decider But Srikanth and Nehwal had given their side a good cushion and the tight mixed doubles triumph from Rankireddy and Ashwini Ponnappa sealed the deal The Indian victory in the final against Malaysia on Sunday evening by the identical scoreline of 3-1 would have been doubly satisfying for it was not only achieved against the nation that had deprived the Indians of the gold in New Delhi eight years ago but it was also earned through male spearhead Srikanth’s first-ever win against the redoubtable Lee Chong Wei who has totally dominated international badminton in the company of China’s Lin Dan over the past dozen years The team management must have agonized long and hard over fielding Srikanth — whose recent form has been nothing to speak about and who had lost all his four previous matches against the 35-year-old Malaysian ace — in preference to his lower-ranked team-mate HS Prannoy who has a 2-2 career head-to-head record against Lee and who had significantly won on the most recent two occasions that the two clashed in the Indonesian Open in June and the Danish Open in October both last year But as has been often said form may be temporary but class is permanent With India opting to place its faith in Srikanth’s pedigree the 25-year-old Andhra native lifted his game to dizzy heights against the three-time Olympic silver medallist just when it mattered the most Srikanth was positive and aggressive showed no signs of the foot injury that had blighted his efforts on court in the initial weeks of the current year and was able to hit his sizzling overhead jump smashes both along the sideline and across court at will It certainly helped that Lee has most definitely slowed down and was just that little bit late in clearing the bird from the net — which gave the Indian that split-second extra time to execute the leaping overhead smash hit with excellent variations of pace and angle Lee was never in the match and Srikanth was full value for his 21-17 21-14 success — which coincidentally was exactly the same scoreline in the semi-final against Singaporean Loh Kean Yew Srikanth’s victory virtually broke Malaysian hearts since it was crucial for the defending champions that Lee wins his match and bring his team back on par in the summit clash with the Indians who had earlier bagged the mixed doubles Putting the massive burden of having to play two matches on the 17-year-old shoulders of Rankireddy the Indian team management had once again sent him onto court with the experienced 28-year-old Ponnappa to take on the strong Malaysian combination of Chan Peng Soon and Goh Liu Yong seeded second in the individual event A hard-fought 21-14 15-21 21-15 win had allowed the Indians to make a dream start to the final; and the value of this win in the eventual result must not be under-estimated Had Rankireddy and Ponnappa lost a vast amount of pressure would have come on Srikanth and the tie could well have gone down to the wire instead of finishing with the penultimate encounter The lion’s share of the credit for the mixed doubles victory must go to Ponnappa who served well was outstanding at the net and created a vast number of openings for her hard-hitting partner to finish off Thegirl from Coorg had also shone in the semi-final against Singapore; and must now be considered a fine prospect for a mixed doubles individual medal After Srikanth had sent the Indians to the brink of a gold medal triumph there was a temporary letdown for the Indians when Rankireddy and Shetty could not get past Goh V Shem and Tan Wee Kiong who have been ranked as high as World No 2 in the past The Malaysians took the Indians down by a 21-15 22-20 margin to give their team a whiff of producing an improbable renaissance That was all snuffed out by the Queen of Indian badminton Nehwal who was called upon to play her sixth match in five days for the country in this mixed team event ostensibly to give the injured ankle of her heir-apparent PV Sindhu a little more time to recover Nehwal looked careworn and weary for the most part and was at far from her best as Soniaa Cheah ranked 29th in the world dragged her all over the court and stayed obdurately in the long rallies But the old war-horse would not be denied when it mattered the most From a 9-11 deficit at the mid-point of the first game the former World No 1 reeled off a dozen points without reply to bag the first game She was a bit untidy in the second game to allow her rival to bag it at 21-19 but pulled up her socks in no uncertain manner in the decider to record a 21-11 19-21 21-9 triumph Those famed fighting qualities were never in evidence more than in that final game And so the mixed badminton team completed a never-to-be-forgotten day for Indian sport as it emulated the sterling efforts of the two table tennis squads and made it gold gold gold all the way Without their support, on Thursday, Officials are currently figuring out whether the two cases are connected. following an attack that left
