Despite its popularity in books and film, mounted skeletons of Stegosaurus did not become a staple of major natural history museums until the mid-20th century, and many museums have had to assemble composite displays from several different specimens due to a lack of complete skeletons.As the archetypal thyreophoran, Stegosaurus is one of the best-known dinosaurs, and has been featured in film, postal stamps, and many other types of media.“If you have no idea how old somebody is, you can at least narrow down the possibilities of a missing person,” Buchholtz told Hall.Everyone has carbon-14 in their bodies from food, Buchholtz said."He lit up every time he had the chance to talk about his family," his wife said. Thomas' Church, Whitemarsh, Bethlehem Pike and Camp Hill Road, Fort Washington.In addition to his wife, who is senior vice president of administration at Comcast Corp., he is survived by son Alex, daughter Julia, a brother, and a sister.

“The technique uses the carbon 14 concentration in dental enamel and they get a date of birth,” scientist Bruce Buchholtz told WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall. Stegosaurus would have lived alongside dinosaurs such as Apatosaurus, Diplodocus, Brachiosaurus, Allosaurus, and Ceratosaurus; the latter two may have been predators of it. The remains of over 80 individual animals of this genus have been found.The carbon-14 dating can determine how old a person was when they died and possibly the year they died, scientists said.Buchholtz said the technology could help investigators pinpoint the victims’ identities through process of elimination. So far, five of the victims who have washed ashore have been identified but five others have not. (CBSNew York) – Investigators working to identify the human remains that have washed up on Long Island’s Gilgo Beach may turn to science for help."He was an unmatched leader as well as one of the most dedicated, forthright, and effective colleagues I've had the privilege to work with," said Drexel University president John A. Buchholz was managing partner of the Philadelphia office of DLA Piper International. He was a key member of the Bush-Cheney presidential team that litigated the historic Florida recount in 2000 that led to the defeat of Democratic candidates Al Gore and Joe Lieberman. A mammoth undertaking, the department consisted of 22 federal agencies and 170,000 employees, fueled by a budget of more than billion. For the next five years, he led the 500-lawyer firm through an aggressive growth plan that expanded the firm's national and international profile."During those chaotic early days in the White House after Sept. In August 2012, he announced he was joining DLA Piper.The function of this array of plates and spikes has been the subject of much speculation among scientists.Today, it is generally agreed that their spiked tails were most likely used for defense against predators, while their plates may have been used primarily for display, and secondarily for thermoregulatory functions.
