Paleontologist? Published? Need some dough?

Dear Sirs or Macadam,

I representing consortium of business in prosperous nations at Nigeria. Please to be sending credit cards detail for payment immediate large money sums . . .

No, no, no, it's nothing like that.

Entries are now being accepted for Paleonturology '07, entries meaning paleontology papers that were published in 2006. Make five photocopies and put them in the mail. Anyone can apply, student or not, invert or vert paleo. Heck, you can even send in five copies of someone else's paper if you'd like them to win. Deadline is Nov. 30. Rules and instructions--mercifully short--are here. (Please note that there is an error on the page; entries had to have been published in 2006, not 2005 as it currently states. )

The winner gets 4500 Euros (currently almost $6500) and international prestige. If you know Darren, or if your paper is about tetrapods, you might also get written up on TetZoo. I was.

You're still here? Get movin'!

I am currently working with Walking With Dinosaurs: The Live Experience and I would like to provide you with some brief information about this remarkable show for consideration within your blog. Being you blog is geared toward paleontology, I believe that your support could be seriously beneficial.

The show is originally based on the award-winning BBC Television Series and has since been adapted into a full scale area tour. The show features 15 dinosaurs that are stunning, life-size and faultlessly nimble. In fact, the creatures are so large, that the show can only play to two-thirds of the seating of American arenas.

Walking With Dinosaurs: The Live Experience is a terrific family event and has been amazing audiences of ages 3-93. We consider on show to be Edutainment and believe that both children and adults learn something new while they are being entertained.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or even to possibly arrange for you to see the show. (We have a show coming to Colorado Springs early in January of ’08)

Many Thanks,

Dave Melerine
