RIO DE JANEIRO (AFP).- Brazil just found its biggest ever dinosaur -- in a storage cupboard.
In its prime, more than 66 million years ago, this long necked herbivore was 25 meters (82 feet)
long -- longer than an articulated bus -- and could chomp through trees at a terrifying rate. By the
time the creature was found by renowned Brazilian paleontologist Llewellyn Ivor Price in 1953,
only a few hefty, fossilized bits of the spine remained. Researchers knew immediately they'd
stumbled on something big. They didn't have the staff or resources to figure out how big, however,
so the dinosaur pieces languished the next six decades in storage at Rio's ornate Museum of Earth
Sciences. Until now.

A glittering new addition to Sacramento’s downtown, the Golden 1 Center opened 4th October
2016 with a decidedly old-school Paul McCartney concert. Don’t let the nostalgic opener fool
you; this $557 million, 17,500-seat multi-use arena, which serves as the home of the NBA’s
Sacramento Kings as well as a year-round event venue, offers a convincing vision of the future
of stadium design.
