Jenkins: Deflate-gate, despite history of Patriots and NFL, is a scandal that’s losing air

Jenkins: Deflate-gate, despite history of Patriots and NFL, is a scandal that’s losing air

Ancient knife-toothed reptile is crocodile cousin

The fossil of a prehistoric 9-foot-long carnivorous reptile that had sharp, serrated teeth is helping researchers fill out the early branches of the reptile family tree, according to a new study.  It's unclear where the reptile, Nundasuchus songeaensis, falls on the evolutionary tree, said Sterling Nesbitt, an assistant professor of geology at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University

Lucas on next 'Star Wars' and 'Strange Magic'

George Lucas's new animated feature musical 'Strange Magic' is now in theaters after 15 years of planning and work. But for him, the highlight of 2015, he says, will be seeing 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' as just a spectator, rather than its creator. Disney, which bought Lucasfilm Ltd. in 2012, is the force behind the film, and J.J. Abrams is directing.
