Modern Family star Sarah Hyland has revealed she had to have a second kidney transplant, and that she thought about suicide after the failure of the first.

Near-complete fossil reveals evolution of advanced flight among early birds

Science
Nov. 13 (UPI) -- The most complete skeleton of an enantiornithine bird has offered scientists new insights into the appearance and behavior of the unique group.

The fossil -- described Tuesday in the journal PeerJ -- is an example of convergent evolution among early groups of birds. Enantiornithines were quite successful during the Cretaceous period, thriving among other bird groups and dinosaurs between 145 and 66 million years ago. The remains of members of the group have been recovered from every continent except Antarctica. "Enantiornithines originate well past the divergence with other theropod dinosaurs, and are more closely related to living birds," J...
