'Newsweek' recently reported on some of the last dinosaurs that were around when a gigantic asteroid struck the Earth and caused a mass extinction event. This event wiped out nearly three quarters of all plant and animal species on the planet, including non-avian dinosaurs and pterosaurs, as well as many birds and mammals. The last Age of the Dinosaurs took place near the end of the Cretaceous Period at a time referred to as the Maastrichtian. We mostly hear about the last dinosaurs that were alive in North America, because some of the best and only rocks we've discovered for this moment in time are in Montana and the Dakotas. , Ashley Poust, Paleontologist from the San Diego Natural History Museum, via 'Newsweek'. That's only a very small bit of what was likely a huge, unknown diversity of 'last dinosaurs' across the globe, Ashley Poust, Paleontologist from the San Diego Natural History Museum, via 'Newsweek'. Two of the most famous dinosaur species alive during the Maastrichtian were the Triceratops and the Tyrannosaurus rex. Remains of these well-known dino species were found alongside a number of other dinosaurs in the Hell Creek Formation. . The heavily armored plant-eater, Ankylosaurus, the thick-skulled plant-eater, Pachycephalosaurus, and the bird-like "Chicken from Hell," Anzu, were also among the final dinosaurs.

The heavily armored plant-eater, Ankylosaurus, the thick-skulled plant-eater, Pachycephalosaurus, and the bird-like "Chicken from Hell," Anzu, were also among the final dinosaurs. These would've been some of the very last non-avian dinosaurs on Earth; most or all were probably in existence when that giant asteroid fell out of the sky 66 million years ago and caused massive environmental disturbances, Matthew Lamanna, Palaeontologist from the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, via 'Newsweek'. 'Newsweek' reports that scientists also know that dinosaurs existed in Mongolia, Madagascar and Antarctica around the time of the mass extinction event.

Significant 2020 Census Miscounts Affected 14 States, US Census Bureau Admits

Significant 2020 Census Miscounts , Affected 14 States, , US Census Bureau Admits. The U.S. Census Bureau released its report on the 2020 Census Post-Enumeration Survey (PES) on May 19. Significant net undercount rates were discovered in Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas. Significant net overcount rates were discovered in Delaware, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Rhode Island and Utah. No census is perfect, Robert Santos, Census Bureau Director, via NPR News. And the PES allows us to become more informed about the 2020 census by estimating what portion of the population was correctly counted, Robert Santos, Census Bureau Director, via NPR News. ... where we missed people and where some people were counted that shouldn't have been, Robert Santos, Census Bureau Director, via NPR News. It's a monumental task to count everybody. And this helps us inform how well we do, Timothy Kennel, Census Bureau Assistant Division Chief, via NPR News. Lawmakers across the country have already begun to use the 2020 Census data to establish new voting districts in their states. Voting-rights activists say that 2020 grassroots efforts seemed to have mitigated significant miscounts in their respective areas. A lot of the southern states were hit with disasters, hurricanes while door-to-door work was going on, Allison Plyer, The Data Center, via NPR News. But the one thing that states have control over is their own get-out-the-count efforts, Allison Plyer, The Data Center, via NPR News. We know that Texas invested very little in get-out-the-count, and when they did so, it was very late in the process, Allison Plyer, The Data Center, via NPR News. Texas was found to have had a significant net undercount rate of 1.92 percent. More data and demographic detail are needed for a full understanding of our communities and who does β€” or does not β€” have access to critical resources, Meeta Anand, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Right, via NPR News. The Census Bureau also needs to be adequately funded to ensure that inequities from inaccurate counts do not persist into 2030 and beyond, Meeta Anand, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Right, via NPR News
