Huge T-rex skeleton, almost complete, some battle damage

One of the largest, most complete and most famous Tyrannosaurus rex skeletons is about to go under the hammer. The dinosaur, nicknamed “Stan,” has been on display in the Black Hills Institute for decades, but will now be auctioned off by Christie’s to whoever has a spare few million dollars and a T-rex-sized space on hand.

Named after palaeontologist Stan Sacrison who discovered the first bones in 1987, Stan is a magnificent specimen of one of the most incredible creatures to have ever walked the planet. He stands 13 feet (4 m) high at the hip and stretches 40 feet (12 m) long from snout to tail, and is estimated to have weighed between 7 and 8 tons – putting him not far behind Scotty as one of the largest Tyrannosaurs ever found.

Made up of 188 original bones, Stan is also the fifth-most complete T-rex, behind other celebrities like

Fire crews in Angwin fight flames along Hwy 29 and save homes amid Glass Fire

ANGWIN, Calif. (KGO) — Fire crews were holding the eastern flank of the Glass Fire on Thursday night.

Bulldozers and an army of fire engines from up and down the West Coast, lined up along Highway 29 where it winds up through a forest, north of Calistoga.

“On this portion, the fire behavior is calm and the winds are in our favor,” said Kyle Breaw, who is part of a Calfire hand crew out of Santa Clara, charged with ensuring the flames don’t cross the dozer line and highway.

“The importance of holding it,” Breaw said, “is so it doesn’t cross over and burn into a new section or burn other homes.”

South in the community of Angwin, firefighters fought back flames for a second time this week, leaving smoldering fires next

Is the Fall a Good Time to Buy a House? This Year, Things Have Changed.

Coronavirus sent the U.S. housing market for a spin this summer as demand outstripped supply—and the highly competitive environment appears to have continued into the fall.

“Normally, this last week of September is sort of a buyers’ sweet spot,”
Danielle Hale
, chief economist at Realtor.com, told Barron’s. In a typical year, September is when buyer demand decreases as home listings remain on the market, resulting in more options and less competition, she said.

But that was not the case this year. Homes spent an average of 54 days on the market nationally in September, 12 fewer days than the same month last year and three fewer than in August 2020, according to a Realtor.com study. That’s an unusual occurrence during a month when market activity normally begins to slow. This was the first year since at least 2016 when homes spent less

Georgia steers virus aid to care homes as rapid tests arrive

ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp announced Friday that $113 million in federal coronavirus relief funds will be made available to nursing homes and long-term care facilities.

The funding will be used to bolster staffing and staff testing in facilities across the state, according to news release from Kemp’s office.

Georgia received approximately $4.1 billion in federal funding as part of the CARES Act, passed by Congress in March to provide economic assistance to address the pandemic. The state had approximately $2.1 billion of that left before Friday’s announcement, Kemp spokesman Cody Hall said. Funding can be used to cover costs incurred up until Dec. 30.

Residents of nursing homes and long-term care facilities have been hit particularly hard by the pandemic.

As of Thursday, over 2,530 residents of nursing homes and long-term care facilities with 25 beds or more had died after contracting the coronavirus, according to

GA Coronavirus: $113 Million Targeted To Help Nursing Homes

ATLANTA, GA — Gov. Brian Kemp announced Friday that $113 million in federal coronavirus relief funds would be made available to Georgia nursing homes for increased staffing and COVID-19 response.

“My top priority from the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic has been to ensure the health and safety of our most vulnerable citizens,” Kemp said.

As of Friday, 2,531 residents of Georgia’s nursing homes and assisted-care facilities have died because of the coronavirus. That’s more than a third of Georgia’s 7,106 deaths so far.

The site of a Homes for Heroes tiny home development in Edmonton’s Evansdale neighbourhood. The 20-unit housing project will provide homes to veterans facing homelessness.

Premier Jason Kenney announced $1.1 million in provincial funding Friday for a housing development in Edmonton for veterans who are experiencing homelessness.

The funding will go toward the Homes for Heroes Foundation, which was developed three years ago in response to the growing number of military veterans who return to civilian life and find themselves without stable housing.

Earlier this year, the foundation was given the green light to build a tiny home development in the area of 94A Street between 153 and 152A avenues.

“Some who face combat or violence and trauma in far off places come back and find it difficult to adjust to civilian life,” Kenney said. “And sometimes that means some of our veterans find themselves

Landlords warn eviction ban bill would lead to foreclosures, slums

A bill that would halt evictions and freeze rents for a year after Gov. Charlie Baker lifts the coronavirus state of emergency has cleared its first major hurdle but faces staunch opposition from landlords who say it would lead to foreclosures, slums and worse.

“The further people get behind in their rent, the less likely they will ever be able to pay it. If we don’t deal with this problem and we wait another year, there’s a lot of money that will never get paid,” said Greg Vasil, CEO and president of the Greater Boston Real Estate Board. “It’s the property owners who lose. We’ll see foreclosures and properties will start to fall into disrepair.”

The eviction protection bill cleared the Joint Committee on Housing in a 14-3 party-line vote on Thursday. Proponents say the bill aims to keep tenants in their home after losing jobs due to the pandemic.
