Quotes

As World Bank Vice President  Rachel Kyte told Marianne Lavelle of National Geographic last year, "It is energy that lights the lamp that lets you do your homework, that keeps the heat on in a hospital, that lights the small businesses where most people work. Without energy, there is no economic growth, there is no dynamism, and there is no opportunity."
"We had almost the entire skull, which was wonderful," Terry Gates, co-author of the new findings, said in a statement , "but the preparation was very difficult. It took two years to dig the fossil out of the sandstone it was embedded in--it was like digging a dinosaur skull out of a concrete driveway."
"I'm using my authority as president to protect some of our nation's most pristine marine monuments, just like we do on land" Obama had said at the time
According to National Geographic: "Gaelic football and hurling are some of the top spectator sports in Ireland and Northern Ireland, culminating in the All-Ireland Senior Championship finals played in Dublin's Croke Park in September."
