Amateur fossil hunter finds rare teeth from ancient mega-shark on Australian beach

  
A rare set of teeth from a giant prehistoric mega-shark twice the size of the great white have been found on an Australian beach by a keen-eyed amateur enthusiast, scientists said on Thursday. Philip Mullaly was strolling along an area known as a fossil hotspot at Jan Juc, on the country's famous Great Ocean Road some 100 kilometres (60 miles) from Melbourne, when he made the find. "I was walking along the beach looking for fossils, turned and saw this shining glint in a boulder and saw a quarter of the tooth exposed," he said. "I was immediately excited, it was just perfect and I knew it was an important find that needed to be shared with people." He told Museums Victoria, and Erich Fitzgerald, senior curator of vertebrate palaeontology, confirmed the seven centimetre-long (2.7 inch) teeth were from an extinct species of predator known as the great jagged narrow-toothed shark (Carcharocles angustidens). The shark, which stalked Australia's oceans around 25 million years ago, feasting on small whales and penguins, could grow more than nine metres long, almost twice the length of today's great white shark. Fossil enthusiast Philip Mullaly holds a giant shark tooth Credit: WILLIAM WEST/AFP "These teeth are of international significance, as they represent one of just three associated groupings of Carcharocles angustidens teeth in the world, and the very first set to ever be discovered in Australia," Mr Fitzgerald said. He explained that almost all fossils of sharks worldwide were just single teeth, and it was extremely rare to find multiple associated teeth from the same shark. This is because sharks, who have the ability to regrow teeth, lose up to a tooth a day and cartilage, the material a shark skeleton is made of, does not readily fossilise. Mr Fitzgerald suspected they came from one individual shark and there might be more entombed in the rock. So he led a team of palaeontologists, volunteers, and Mr Mullaly on two expeditions earlier this year to excavate the site, collecting more than 40 teeth in total. Most came from the mega-shark, but several smaller teeth were also found from the sixgill shark (Hexanchus), which still exists today. Museums Victoria palaeontologist Tim Ziegler said the sixgill teeth were from several different individuals and would have become dislodged as they scavenged on the carcass of the Carcharocles angustidens after it died. "The stench of blood and decaying flesh would have drawn scavengers from far around," he said. "Sixgill sharks still exist off the Victorian coast today, where they live off the remains of whales and other animals. This find suggests they have performed that lifestyle here for tens of millions of years."......

Sex scandal at American 'megachurch' causes leaders to quit after ten women accuse founder

  
One of America's largest "megachurches" has been rocked by a sex scandal which has seen its entire senior leadership team quit. Willow Creek Church's founder, Bill Hybels, was accused of sexual misconduct several years ago but was privately cleared of wrongdoing by the church elders. He was forced to step down earlier this year when the historical allegations became public. Mr Hybels has denied any wrongdoing but said he had become a distraction from the church. Since then, more women have come forward to claim they were harassed by the church founder.   The new revelations over the weekend led the church's leaders to admit they had failed to handle the claims appropriately. In a statement, the church elders announced they would all be standing down, saying a "new start" was needed. "We trusted Bill, and this clouded our judgment," one elder, Missy Rasmussen, told the congregation. Church leaders did not move quickly enough to secure Mr Hybels' electronic devices, she said.  Ms Rasmussen said the church elders had "no reason not to believe" the ten women who have accused the church founder of sexual misconduct. A pastor can be seen projected on several televisions in one 7,000-seat Willow Creek Community church in Illinois Credit: Reuters  Willow Creek is thought to be the fifth largest "megachurch" in the US with more than 25,000 members and locations across Chicago.  "Megachurches" are defined as congregations with at least 2,000 people in regular weekly attendance. The allegations against Mr Hybels by a string of women date back to the 1990s but only became public when The Chicago Tribune and Christianity Today broke the story earlier this year. The papers detailed claims of unwanted advances and suggestive comments to church members.  The church's leaders were reportedly told four years ago that Mr Hybels was having an affair with one woman and was accused of harassment by others. An internal investigation cleared him of wrongdoing. But in April, after the allegations came to light, Mr Hybels announced he would step down months ahead of his planned retirement in October. His announcement brought gasps from his congregation. New allegations emerged in recent days, with Mr Hybels' former assistant alleging he groped her repeatedly. The church's entire leadership have now quit over the church's handling of the misconduct allegations. In their statement, church elders said investigations had been "flawed" and that their trust in Willow Creek's founder had "clouded our judgement". "We, as a board, know Willow needs and deserves a fresh start, and the entire board will step down to create room for a new board," it said. The church's lead pastor, Heather Larson. who also stepped down, said trust in the church's leadership had been broken and urgently needed to "move in a better direction". The megachurch had been due to host a summit of hundreds of churches, but dozens have pulled out since the announcement on Wednesday. Willow Creek's new lead pastor, Steve Gillen, has pledged to commission an independent review of the church's leadership.......

Saudi Arabia reassures Canada on oil supply in row over jailed activists

  
By Aziz El Yaakoubi RIYADH (Reuters) - A row over human rights in Saudi Arabia will not have any impact on Saudi oil supplies to Canada, its energy minister said on Thursday, reassuring customers after Riyadh froze new trade with Canada and ruled out mediation efforts. Saudi Arabia, angered by Canada's demand last week that jailed activists in the kingdom be freed immediately, expelled the Canadian ambassador, blocked imports of Canadian grain and ended state-backed educational and medical programs in Canada. The dispute has threatened to undermine Riyadh's foreign investment drive, a campaign already unsettled by a series of assertive political and diplomatic initiatives by the top oil exporter.......
