Researchers at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego and the Western Australian Museum have confirmed the existence of a previously unknown third species of seadragon — the ruby seadragon, aka Phyllopteryx dewysea.It s a relative of the well-known leafy seadragon Phycodurus eques and common seadragon Phyllopteryx taeniolatus , both of which are found off the southern and western coasts of Australia.But before 2015, their ruby cousin wasn t known to exist, thanks to its habitat — deeper than recreational SCUBA diving limits — and its close resemblance to the common seadragon.Researchers began to suspect a third species existed when they examined preserved specimens of what were believed to be common seadragons.Now, thanks to remotely operated underwater cameras, their suspicions have been confirmed.The ruby seadragon lacks the elaborate appendages its relatives use for camouflage It never occurred to me that a sea dragon could lack appendages, because they are characterized by their beautiful camouflage leaves, said marine biologist Josefin Stiller, a Scripps graduate student, in a statement .

There are societally accepted ways to complain when dealing with a company.It s fine, for example, to ask to speak to the manager, or to bitch about them on Twitter.But slamming your car into a shop front?Yeah, that s not cool.Someone who recently learned this lesson the hard way is Shinobia Montoria Wright – a 26-year-old resident of Palm Springs, Florida.After Wright cracked her iPhone screen, she drove to her nearest T-Mobile store to demand a replacement.

I'm not an expert on this, so will look forward to seeing some other answers.But, at the outset, I don't think think that there is a clear divide between B2B and B2C.I think that, on a case-by-case basis, B2B and B2C companies may have different needs.As such, different MA platforms aim to meet the needs of different kinds of businesses.Sometimes their features more directly align with B2B companies and other times, B2C.B2C companies may have recurring product purchases e.g., you buy often, over time versus a B2B company that may have a subscription model or a one-time product purchase.

Right now, if you want an alternative-fuel vehicle, you have to pick from offerings that either require gasoline or an electrical outlet.The gas-electric hybrid and the battery-powered car — your Toyota Priuses, Chevy Volts, and Teslas — are staples in this space.There are drawbacks for drivers of both types.You still have to buy gas for your hybrid and you have to plug in your Tesla — sometimes under less than favorable conditions — lest you be stranded someplace far away from a suitable plug.Beyond that, automakers have been out to find the next viable energy source.Plug-in vehicles are more or less proven to be the answer, but Toyota and a handful of other carmakers are investigating hydrogen.That's where the Toyota Mirai comes in.It's an ambitious project for Toyota because the fueling infrastructure for this car is minimal.
