In the early 1970s, a soulful voice could be heard wafting from radios and speakers around the world as Michael Jackson sang a heartfelt tune about 'Ben'. To the casual listener, it sounded like the best bromance in the world; a heartbroken lad singing about his brother or best friend, but that tune was the standout track to Willard, a long forgotten movie about a rat.

They have named it Timurlengia.
A study of the 90-million-year-old beast suggested its ears and brain were crucial in Tyrannosaurs' dominance.
"We have a totally new species of dinosaur," explained lead researcher Dr Stephen Brusatte from the University of Edinburgh.
"It's one of the very closest cousins of T. rex, but a lot smaller - about the size of a horse.
"And it comes from the middle part of the Cretaceous period - a point where we have a huge gap in the fossil record."
This "frustrating" gap has made T. rex - which was found later in the period and was up to 13m head to tail - something of an evolutionary mystery. That is what this find has helped to resolve.read more on bbc link=http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-35806780
Two dogs in Essex have died and three others needed blood transfusions.
American Bulldog Ollie is thought to be the first dog in the UK to be diagnosed with the disease.
Owner Julie Newman, from Harlow, said she is "hugely relieved" her pet survived the illness following a transfusion.

"It was really touch-and-go if he would make it.
"He was really lethargic, he normally has so much energy but he just lost it, he went really strange and we noticed he had blood in his urine," she said.=read more on bbc link=http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-35831572
How spiders interpret those signals is a mystery - so physicists have built this replica to figure it out.
They unveiled the design and their first results on Friday at a meeting of the American Physical Society (APS).
"We wove the web using two different kinds of rope, the same way as spiders use two different formulations of silk," said Ross Hatton from Oregon State University.
The radial strands that fan out from the centre are made of stiff, nylon parachute cable, while elastic bungee cords make up the "spiral strands".
The whole thing sits in an octagonal aluminium frame, with a speaker strapped to one corner to deliver some hefty vibrations.=READ MORE =BBC LINK=http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-35849341

What inspired you? inspitration came from my teacher Walt Maurus... I created the frist red, white and blue bettas..they were then sent overseas by my teacher the original name I gave to them was Bicenntenial Bettas but this name somehow got changed to Mascot...Walt also created the worlds first Gold bettas and this was before we had the metallic bettas...my goal is to teach as many people about betta genetics and try to bring back dome of the older strains and have online shows that promote strain purity, the betta world has suffered greatly because of the satndards some shows have put on them, while on one hand promoting saving the fish on the other hand making sure only a limitied amount of genes are able to be shown thus crushing the gene pool...let me give you an example...in the category they have for black...only the blackest fish should win...there are 4 strains of blck and the only one of those that show the intense black that they want is the Superblack...so..people tend not to breed the other blacks because they can not compete with the superblack...like Black Lace or Black orchid that always shows blue...the melano has suffered for years because of breeding to steel, this was a mistake..Melano should be bred to red or yellow to carry that gene..instead of a fish that is mostly iridecsent. there are many misconceptions I am trying to get people on the right track and getting the overseas breeders involved as well . What are your aims? I think genetics have also suffered because of misinformation.what are your plans for the future? The breeding of multi colored fish has also diminished the gene pool as breeders multi colored fish are useless...this is also a big strain on the betta world...and pure strains are geetting harder to find...like Blue without metallic or marble genes the problem is when a new thing comes along people want to breed it into everything thus losing the pure strains/

Following the break-up of ELP at the end of the decade, Emerson had modest success with his solo career and with Emerson, Lake & Powell in the 1980s, as well as with the short-lived progressive rock band 3, with the album To the Power of Three. ELP reunited during the early 1990s, releasing the album, Black Moon. Emerson also reunited the Nice in 2002 for a tour. His last album, The Three Fates Project, was released in 2012.
Along with British contemporaries Rick Wright of Pink Floyd, Tony Banks of Genesis, Billy Ritchie of Clouds, Rick Wakeman of Yes and Jon Lord of Deep Purple, Emerson is widely regarded as one of the top keyboard players of the progressive rock era. AllMusic describes Emerson as "perhaps the greatest, most technically accomplished keyboardist in rock history".=wiki link =https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keith_Emerson
Adlene Guedioura then smashed home with the visitors' second shot on target.
Substitute Danny Welbeck scored with two minutes left to set up a dramatic finish, before missing the chance to force a replay from an open goal.
With Costel Pantilimon beaten after an Alex Iwobi effort had come back off the post, Welbeck could only stab the ball agonisingly wide as he struggled to keep his balance on the turn=.http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/35738604
