India replaces the Ice Bucket Challenge with the much more sustainable Rice Bucket Challenge 

After seeing the dramatic results from the Ice Bucket Challenge, Indian journalist Manju Latha Kalanidhi was compelled to start something similar, but with an Indian slant. “I felt like doing something more locally tangible. Rice is a staple here,” Kalanidhi told CNN. “We eat it every day, we can store it for months. Why not donate rice to someone who is hungry?”

It’s fairly simpleFollow micdotcom

August 12, 1990: ‘Sue’ the T. Rex is Discovered
On this day in 1990, the best preserved skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus Rex was discovered in western South Dakota. Ten years later, the Sue exhibit went on display at Chicago’s Field Museum. Sue, or FMNH PR 2081, has a record 80 percent complete skeleton.
Perhaps the greatest mystery about dinosaurs is how did they get so big? Sue is fully 20 feet tall and 40 feet long. How she got that big, it turns out, is tied up in yet another mystery: How long did she live?
By studying the bones of both extinct dinosaurs and their living reptilian cousins—alligators and lizards—Greg Erickson of Florida State University has been able to answer both questions: like a reptilian James Dean, T. rex lived fast and died young.
Watch this NOVA scienceNOW clip to see how scientists discovered Sue’s age.
