Terminator Pigs of the Badlands: Wonderful and Weird Oregon

Out in Eastern Oregon is the John Day National Monument, a large parcel of desert land rich with fossils and history predating human existence. It is a beautiful place, and one of the fossils they find in the area are entelodonts, also known as ‘Terminator Pigs.’

I love my dinosaurs, but there were some really interesting and gruesome large mammals that walked the Earth as well. These ‘pigs’ were the size of a buffalo, and look at those teeth! Those do no look friendly.

The extent to which they hunted is widely debated, but those teeth weren’t for eating grass. They lived in the forests and on the plains of North America and Eurasia from the late Eocene to middle Miocene epochs (37.2–15.97 million years ago), existing for about 21.23 million years. Their fossils are quite rare, and I find their existence fascinating to ponder.

Here’s what they probably looked like. I wouldn’t have wanted to meet one.

#SciFi Worth Reading: Transmission #BookReview

An emotional and gripping read, Transmission by Morgan Rice was a page turner. Kevin is dying of a rare brain disease, but he has a lasting gift to offer humankind. He’s the only one who can understand a message being sent by an alien race. What’s the message? Who are the aliens?

These questions kept me reading. Hope for Kevin kept me reading. Hope for a momentous discovery kept me reading.

Kevin and the scientists who go on this journey with him were great characters. There were some good twists and turns as this mystery unraveled. If you’re a fan of Earth meeting aliens, you won’t be disappointed by this book. There are more books in the series, which I need to acquire. I need to know what happens next.

When SETI finally receives a signal from an alien civilization, what will happen next?

A 13 year old boy, dying of a rare brain disease, is the only one able to hear and decode signals from outer space. SETI confirms it is a real signal.

What is the message? How will the world react?

And most of all: are the aliens coming?
