Report: Dutch spies caught Russian hackers on tape

Technology
The Netherlands' spy service broke into the computers used by a powerful Russian hacking group and may be sitting on evidence relating to the breach of the U.S. Democratic National Committee, a Dutch newspaper and television show jointly reported Friday. Reports carried in the respected daily Volkskrant and by the current affairs show Nieuwsuur said hackers working for the Dutch General Intelligence and Security Service penetrated the computers used by the group, often nicknamed Cozy Bear, in mid-2014 and watched them for at least a year, even managing to catch the hackers on camera. Dutch Interior Minister Kajsa Ollongren, interviewed by reporters in The Hague before the government's weekly Cabinet meeting, declined to address the report, saying only that she was "very happy that we have...

Turkey-sized dinosaur found caught in an ancient logjam

Science
Jan. 11 (UPI) -- Paleontologists have discovered a new dinosaur species preserved in an ancient logjam in Australia. The turkey-sized dinosaur offers new insights into the diversity of ornithopods during the Cretaceous period.The newly named species, Diluvicursor pickeringi, was a bipedal herbivorous dinosaur. The small species was found among 113-million-year-old rocks in southwestern Australia."Diluvicursor shows for the first time that there were at least two distinct body-types among closely related ornithopods in this part of Australia," Matt Herne, a researcher at the University of Queensland, said in a news release. "One was lightly built with an extraordinarily long tail, while the other, Diluvicursor, was more solidly built, with a far shorter tail. Our preliminary reconstruction ...

'World's ugliest pig' caught on camera

Science
Media playback is unsupported on your deviceScientists have captured the first footage in the wild of one of the world's rarest - and ugliest - pigs.The Javan warty pig is under such threat from hunting and habitat loss that conservationists surveying its habitat believed it might already have been driven to extinction. Camera traps have now revealed that small populations survive in Java's increasingly fragmented forests.The team says its aim now is to protect the rare animals' habitat. The survey was led by Dr Johanna Rode-Margono from Chester Zoo, who said she and her colleagues were "thrilled" to see that the pigs were still there. The last study of these lowland forested areas was back in 2004 and revealed a "serious decline" in the population of the species. "We were worried that all...
Galapagos finches caught in act of becoming new species

Galapagos finches caught in act of becoming new species

Science
A population of finches on the Galapagos has been discovered in the process of becoming a new species. This is the first example of speciation that scientists have been able to observe directly in the field. Researchers followed the entire population of finches on a tiny Galapagos island called Daphne Major, for many years, and so they were able to watch the speciation in progress.The research was published in the journal Science.The group of finch species to which the Big Bird population belongs are collectively known as Darwin's finches and helped Charles Darwin to uncover the process of evolution by natural selection.In 1981, the researchers noticed the arrival of a male of a non-native species, the large cactus finch.Professors Rosemary and Peter Grant noticed that this male proceeded ...
