After 19 seasons at Gray Sloan Memorial Hospital, Ellen Pompeo is saying goodbye to her “Grey’s Anatomy” character. The ABC star, whose final dates for the show were announced last week, shared an Instagram post in which she said she would “definitely be visiting again.”

“I am forever grateful and honored by the love and support you all have shown me, Meredith GRAY and the show for 19 seasons! Through it all…none of this…would have been possible without the best fans of the world. Y’all are RIDERS and y’all made the ride so fun and ICONIC!!” the Golden Globe nominated actress began.

In August, it was announced that Pompeo would star in and produce an as yet untitled limited series at Hulu based on the true story of a Midwestern couple who adopts what they believe to be an 8-year-old girl with a rare form of dwarfism. Following the eight-episode ABC Signature series, Pompeo only appears in eight of Season 19’s episodes, the majority of which have already aired. She is set to return for the midseason premiere of “Grey’s” on February 23, as well as the season finale.

The move is in line with her character’s previous arcs, which saw her in limited Season 17 scenes following Meredith’s battle with COVID, as well as Minnesota-based research into Parkinson’s disease that she led the following season. The actress – who is also an executive producer on the long-running medical procedure – has expressed her desire to move forward with her career, although she maintained the show will stay close to her.

She concluded in her note: “I love you madly and I like you right away. It’s not your first time on the rollercoaster…you know the show has to go on and I’ll definitely be back to give you a ride.” visit. With much love and immense gratitude XoE 🙏🏼❤

Scottish fossil sheds light on early lizard anatomy • Earth.com https://phrynosoma.org/scottish-fossil-sheds-light-on-early-lizard-anatomy-earth-com/ Thu, 27 Oct 2022 21:48:37 +0000 https://phrynosoma.org/scottish-fossil-sheds-light-on-early-lizard-anatomy-earth-com/ A new fossil specimen of a long-extinct lizard discovered on the Isle of Skye has given paleontologists insight into the early origins of this group of reptiles.

A new fossil specimen of a long-extinct lizard discovered on the Isle of Skye has given paleontologists insight into the early origins of this group of reptiles. The little vertebrate, Bellairsia gracilis, is only 6 cm long and dates from the Middle Jurassic, around 166 million years ago. It was discovered in 2016 by a team led by scientists from the University of Oxford and the National Museums of Scotland. It is one of many new fossil discoveries on the island that have shed light on the early evolution of vertebrate groups including amphibians, reptiles and mammals.

Details of the exceptional new fossil, which includes the most complete skeleton of a fossil lizard in the world, have been published in the journal Nature. The research represents a joint project between scientists from the universities of Warsaw, Oxford and UCL, and accounts for the mixture of ancestral and modern features present in this earliest representative of the group known as the squamata – the largest group of living reptiles that includes lizards, chameleons and snakes.

“This little fossil allows us to see evolution in action. In paleontology, you rarely have the opportunity to work with such complete and well-preserved fossils from a time of which we know so little. bellairsia has modern lizard characteristics, like traits related to cranial kinesicrany – it is the movement of the bones of the skull relative to each other. This is an important functional characteristic of many living squamates,” explained the study’s first author, Dr. Mateusz Tałanda.

“It was one of the first fossils I found when I started working on Skye. The little black skull was sticking out of the pale limestone, but it was so small that I was lucky enough to spot it. Looking closer I saw the tiny teeth and realized I had found something important, but we had no idea until later that almost the entire skeleton was there. said study co-author Dr. Elsa Panciroli.

As a group, squamates today exhibit many specialized skull and skeletal features, but fossil evidence for the origin of these features is sparse. Although we know that the first representatives were present around 240 million years ago, the lack of fossil evidence from the Triassic and Jurassic periods has made it difficult to map the evolution of their anatomy. Comparison of the new fossil with other examples of living and extinct squamates confirms that bellairsia belongs to the “stem” of the squamate family tree. This means that it separated from other lizards just before the origin of modern groups.

The researchers used computed tomography (CT) x-rays to study the details of the bellairsia fossil, in the same way as medical CT methods produce 3D images of a human body without the need to go inside. The researchers were able to image the entire fossil without removing it from the rock in which it formed millions of years ago. While medical scans operate on the millimeter scale, the Oxford University CT scan revealed details of the tiny lizard’s skeletal anatomy down to a few tens of micrometres.

Parts of the skeleton were then imaged in even greater detail, including the skull, hind limbs and pelvis, at the European Synchrotron (ESRF, Grenoble, France). The intensity of the synchrotron beam allows a resolution of 4 micrometers, revealing the details of the smallest bones of the skeleton.

“Fossils like this bellairsia have enormous value in filling gaps in our understanding of the evolution and history of life on Earth,” said study co-author Professor Roger Benson. “Previously, it was nearly impossible to study such tiny fossils like this, but this study shows the power of new techniques, including computed tomography, to image them non-destructively and in great detail.”

Study co-author Professor Susan Evans (UCL) first described and named bellairsia of some jaw and skull bones from Oxfordshire 25 years ago. “It’s wonderful to have a complete specimen of this tantalizing little lizard and to see where it sits in the evolutionary tree,” Prof Evans said. “Through fossils like bellairsia we gain a better understanding of the primitive anatomy of lizards. Angus Bellairs, the lizard embryologist after [whom] bellairsia was originally named, would have been thrilled.

    Gray Sloan Memorial’s latest intern class is tasked with ushering in a new era for the hospital and for “Grey’s Anatomy,” which signals a major shift after 19 seasons as it looks to a potential future without Meredith Gray ( Ellen Pompeo).

    Harry Shum Jr is one such intern. He plays Benson “Blue” Kwan, a quick-witted, impatient, and brilliant first-year surgical resident at Grey-Sloan. Kwan is described as generous by nature, fiercely competitive, naturally gifted and accustomed to winning everything. A family crisis interfered with his career plans, and now he has a lot to prove.

    We’ve already seen how Blue is intent on reaching the top, and it didn’t exactly leave a glowing impression, considering he lied to a grieving patient about a dead brother.

    “As we go through the story, we’ll find out the things that triggered this, and then the way he reacts to things, especially in social settings, might show signs that he’s inadequate in some areas of his life,” the actor told TheWrap.

    Below, Shum Jr. talks more about his character, ushering in a new era for “Grey’s,” and what to expect from Thursday night’s episode, which airs on ABC at 9 ET/PT.

    We only get a small glimpse of who Blue is in the first episode. What can we expect to learn about him as the season progresses?

    Nobody knows anything about Blue. It’s the draw. [Laughs]. No, I mean he’s competitive, which I think might be a mechanism he failed at. As we go through the storyline we’ll find out what triggers this and then the way he reacts to things, especially in social settings, might show signs that he’s inadequate in certain areas of his life. What I really liked about the pilot was the mystery behind him and not really knowing how you want to feel about him, which I think is the fun part of taking on this role.

    Where are you in filming the season and do you know how things will go?

    We are immersed in Episode 7 now. OK. We have acquired [scripts] like, a week before. We’re shooting different episodes, sort of at the same time, which honestly has been nice because you can find that piece of the puzzle. You’re like, ‘Oh, I know where this is heading.’ And then you find this other one and you’re like, “Okay, I can put them together.” That’s how I feel especially about me, being a new cast member.

    Interns are already beginning to form a special bond. As actors, have you also started to create this bond on the set?

    They created the pilot during our lunch [one day], and that was just the whole crew. Everyone in the cast showed up and we’re outside in this big tent and it was really cool to see this for something that’s been on for 19 seasons, because you’d think everyone was bored, but everyone had this new excitement. As for the new trainees, we have regrouped and just made sure that this feeling that we have is the one that we have to maintain throughout the season. I don’t see it stopping because they are just good people and great talents. They just make me laugh every day. I think it will be able to translate to the screen.

    “Grey’s” feels like an institution at this point, and the new cast really carry a lot of the story this season. Was it nerve-wracking to be brought in to usher in a new era of this series?

    It was because when you come in, you don’t know how to act. You see this train moving but it made stops and then we are allowed to get on and get a full tutorial on how things work. The other cast members have been around for a long time, and they all have their own different perspectives. I think that’s one of the nicest things because you get a 360 view of how everyone [operates]. Coming so late in the game, I think the bullying will still be there, but it really was a collaborative effort. We were really welcomed into the team.

    Did you get any words of wisdom from any of the veteran cast members?

    I think the most important thing I learned was this chosen family element. Sometimes we see each other more than we see our families. And I think in this particular show, why it lasted so long is because this place is like a sanctuary. We have fun, but everyone is punctual. Everyone is just themselves. Everyone respects each other. It’s never, at least since I’ve been there, that anyone tries to think only of themselves. It’s like as long as we support each other, we’re all going to rise together. And that’s what we’ve all inherited.

    So, what can we expect from Blue in episode 1902?

    This guy is trying to get information on how to stay ahead of the game, and he certainly puts it to good use. I guess that’s all I’ll say, because there are a lot of secrets. But Blue will definitely use his detective skills to see if he can help with any other operations.

    After visiting her old workplace to get a glimpse of Gray Sloan Memorial’s newest class of interns, “bottom of the barrel” – and being tipped off by the guy who wanted to be the surgical program’s “vagina” – Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) seemed all too happy to let Richard Webber (James Pickens Jr.) handle the situation.

    “Good luck with that,” she said over her shoulder as she left the Gray Sloan emergency room at Grey’s AnatomySeason 19 premieres Thursday, October 6

    Bailey “got really tired of carrying Gray Sloan on her shoulders” last season, Grey’s Showrunner Krista Vernoff explained to TVLine recently. “And she made the decision to step away for her mental health and well-being.”

    But how long will Bailey’s fun job last? Will she ever come back to the hospital?

    Grey’s Anatomy spoilers ahead!

    Bailey will indeed return to Gray Sloan, per TVLinewho previously reported that the character would soon team up with Addison, played by the former Kate Walsh. fans of the story “will learn a little more about Addison’s life in Los Angeles,” Vernoff told the site last week.

    The Grey’s The boss added that the ABC show will dive into what an ambitious person like Bailey does “when they kind of reach the top of where they want to go” and have to find other areas where that ambition can be. useful.

    “For Bailey, it’s in so many areas,” said Vernoff, who also handles the fate of Bailey’s husband, Ben, as the spinoff’s showrunner. Post 19. “It can also be a case, in some ways, of more being less.”

    Vernoff also teased that the key for Bailey might be “finding the joy of taking a lesser title at work in favor of a richer, happier life.”

    Nino Munoz/ABC

    Actor Chandra Wilson said packaging recently that Bailey is “too curious” to stay away from Gray Sloan for long. “She’s actually going through the same transition that most people in the world are going through right now, where your priorities change as a result of everything we’ve been through for the past three years, at this point,” he said. she declared. added.

    Wilson also said we’ll see another side to Bailey in season 19 as the character redefines his role as Gray Sloan. “We saw a person who had goals from day one; we got to see her achieve those goals in real time,” the SAG Award winner observed. “And we also got to see the difference between who she thinks she is and who the audience knows she is. So I think in Bailey’s mind, she’s still the person you met in the pilot for the most part. , but as an audience member, you know better now, don’t you?

    The Season 19 premiere of “Grey’s Anatomy” is titled “Everything Has Changed” — and for good reason. The episode marked a major change for Gray Sloan Memorial Hospital and for the series as we have always known it.

    The residency program is being rebuilt after a series of failures prompted the hospital to recruit from the bottom of the barrel for interns (or “the diamonds in the rough,” as the show calls them). Not to mention, the show will move forward with far less of its main character, as Ellen Pompeo is only slated to appear in eight episodes this season.

    So how do you continue “Grey’s Anatomy” without Meredith Grey? Back to basics, said showrunner Krista Vernoff.

    Below, Vernoff breaks down more about how the writers forged a new path for “Grey’s” without his beloved head in the center, along with other details about the Season 19 premiere.

    Watching the Season 19 premiere felt very familiar in many ways. It’s almost as if the series started all over again. Why did you feel the best way forward for “Grey’snodded to his past?

    We have made several major changes over the seasons. When I got into Season 14, we made a pretty drastic change. You never want to allow yourself to give in to, ‘Oh, it’s 18 seasons, do whatever.’ Right? You always want to be excited as a writer, and you always want the actors to be excited about the material they get, and you always want the fans to be excited as well. When the question arose like “OK, what next?” What now?” It was like, let’s go back to the roots of the show. If we’re going to have less of Ellen, and we knew we were, what’s the problem? And the thing is, we’ve seen Meredith Gray in her class, go from baby surgeons to Catherine Fox award-winning surgical chefs. The next thing is to start over. What would it be like to have a new class now? What would that new class be like as a result of this what Gray Sloan went through? So we always start from the storytelling and that’s what comes out.

    Since you knew you were going to have less Ellen this season, how did you work to make the moments we see Meredith on screen matter even more?

    This is the challenge of this season. How do you, to a certain extent – ​​I don’t want to conclude – but how do you complement the Meredith Gray storytelling, to have Meredith Gray every week? Meredith is still a part of our universe and we will see her sometimes, but we don’t get her every week. How to give him a satisfying story but also get to know all these new characters? That was the challenge, and I hope we rose to it.

    There are many parallels between the original interns and these new interns. How did you develop them without it feeling outdated, or like we had seen before?

    We wanted to give a few nods to the original season, but not retread the characters or the story. Where Shonda [Rhimes] started was with really well developed characters. Character-centered storytelling in a hospital setting. So what really set ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ apart at that time was that it felt like a traditional medical procedure, but was much more driven by romance, humor, heart and character than your procedure typical medicine. So, we started with: who are these people? What are their stories? Who are their families? What can we reveal? How did their backstories reveal their personalities?

    Tell me about writing Lucas as Derek and Amelia’s nephew. It was certainly an unexpected and heartwarming revelation.

    Well, that was a first idea of: how to nod to the roots of the series and have fabrics [of those characters] sewn into the show, but not copy a character. The idea of ​​really choosing a character that has part Derek in him and part Amelia in him, but when you meet him he’s an intern and a piece of shit, was so fresh and exciting while still feeling cooked .

    This reveals why Amelia is so irritated by their similarities. How will their relationship, and her relationship with Derek, influence her trajectory?

    Lucas is truly his own event. Meredith says [to Amelia], “It’s you.” But we never knew Amelia when she was an intern. I think the main thing is that the parts of him that remind him of Amelia drive her a little crazy and that continues throughout the season. The black sheep element we’ve talked about so much for Amelia, and they share family. Her mother is Amelia’s sister, which drives Amelia crazy. So there is fun to be had in all of this, but Lucas has his own struggles and his own journey, which differs from that of Amelia and Derek.

    We also see an early nod to the Dobbs decision when Jo orders black scrubs for the OB department. Abortion rights have come up countless times throughout this series. Can we expect more leads this season?

    Yes, there will be. As we have had to deal with the impact of COVID, because we are a medical show, there is no way we can do this season without further addressing the impact of this decision on women’s health.

    The hospital is sorely understaffed and we are already seeing tensions rise as a result. Can you say more about how that might play out this season?

    It is the challenge to open the hospital in the middle of an assorted season. That’s the premise of what Meredith did here. As Bailey says in the premiere, they had Catherine Fox invest a lot of money in a whole bunch of new research equipment, and then they worked really hard to find the rough diamonds of people who hadn’t matched somewhere else. . So that really changes the nature of the program, and they also lost all of their senior residents. So, of course, the stress of that plays throughout the season.

    After 19 seasons, are you preparing for the end of “Grey’s”?

    Honestly, there were several seasons where I spent time writing a season and thinking, “This is the last season. It never was. So I won’t make that mistake again. I think he has legs, and I’m gonna start imagining the ending when that ink gets dried on the paper, and then it’s [really] the end.

    [Warning: The below contains major spoilers for the Grey’s Anatomy Season 19 premiere, “Everything Has Changed.”]

    For only the second time in its entire history, Grey’s Anatomy began a season with a class of trainees as series regular characters. And seeing these interns suspended in the tunnels of Gray Sloan — lounging on discarded stretchers, munching on junk food, and talking trash to each other — gave us a glimpse into the MAGIC of the ABC show’s original intern class. “Everything Has Changed” premieres in the October 6 season 19, as the Taylor Swift-inspired episode title attests, and we dare say that has changed for the better.

    Lots of “Aww!” Grey’s Anatomy got season 19 of the long-running ABC drama for quite a fantastic start. We got, if not complete, at least partial resolutions to two cliffhangers (Meredith and Nick’s relationship status and Owen and Teddy’s legal issues). We were introduced to the five new surgical residents who are injecting fresh blood into Gray Sloan. (More on that here.) And we had dropped two surprises on our heads – one of them deliciously based on Derek. And if you keep reading, we’ll go over almost everything that happened in the premiere (which, by the way, was written by showrunner Krista Vernoff and directed by executive producer Debbie Allen).

    “I WILL BE THE VAGINA” | Six months after the events of the Season 18 finale (recaptured here), “Everything Has Changed” found Gray Sloan rebooting his residency program with a bunch of newbs that Bailey — still very much on leave, thank you very much — canceled as having been scraped from the “bottom of the barrel”. One of them, Jules Millin (Adelaide Kane), had just had a one-night stand with an unwitting Link, who she laughed at when he nervously suggested they report their non-existent relationship to HR. . (Shades of Meredith and Derek’s origins, right?) Another of the freshmen, Mika Yasuda (Midori Francis), quickly learned that a dark sense of humor still doesn’t make “organpalooza” a term. suitable for a tornado based bus accident. it left a bunch of people about to give away hearts and livers and so forth that they no longer needed. Resident #3 Simone Griffith (Alexis Floyd) showed up late on the first day due to a panic attack brought on by the fact that she would be working at the same hospital where her mother had died giving birth to her. The fourth of our new faces, Benson Kwan (Harry Shum Jr.) shared that everyone calls him Blue “like in the tape, because I always win.” (Was I the only one who saw a spark between him and Simone?) Finally, we met Lucas Adams (Niko Terho), who has abs worthy of Nico, an aptitude for [bleeping] at the top… and was Derek’s favorite nephew. That wasn’t what Meredith hired him for, she told Amelia. Lucas didn’t remind Gray of her late husband, he reminded him of Amelia!

    As the residency program kicked back into gear, Levi seized the opportunity to drop his hated OB residency with Jo and beg Richard to make him chief resident. Not only was Schmitt what Webber needed — a senior resident, not a freshman — but “if I’m ever tempted to go soft,” the doctor formerly known as Glasses promised, “I’ll imagine a return to OB, and I will grow stronger like a vagina, which I was forced to learn can stretch up to 200 times its natural size and lift 30 pounds. weight just by flexing. All Levi had to do was get Chief Grey’s okay, and she was so okay with it that she suggested it herself. In other personnel news, while Nick was at Gray Sloan picking up an organ for transplant, Meredith, face-to-face with her (ex?) boyfriend for the first time in six months, asked him to become the new director of the residence. Not only had her background inspired her to hire what other hospitals might have considered “junk,” but he wouldn’t have to travel as much. Which means that, although she hurt him by not doing more than screaming his name after telling him to go back to Minnesota, she wanted their relationship to work. In even more personnel news, Teddy and Owen visited Mer, during which they revealed they had been cleared to return to work. Well, Altman had. After numerous legal fees to bail Hunt out of his legal quagmire, he was only allowed to return to work. under surveillance for the next six months. (His medical license had been suspended.)

    grays anatomy season 19 episode 1 recap everything changed“I WANT TO BE A TREE” | Later in the episode, Jo shared with Link that she was changing the OB department scrubs to black since “the female body has become a war zone in this country, and pink is a peacetime color.” Given the plethora of organs suddenly available for harvesting, Maggie was able to tell a patient named Howard that he was about to receive a new heart. When that proved unviable, the task of breaking the news to Howard and her husband was given to…Jules, Pierce’s superfan, who was obsessed with an article she had written and blurted out that “it was not a nice picture”. who had accompanied him. A compliment…probably? Meanwhile, Lucas won the First Big Screwup Award by telling the bad mother named Jane that her son was brain dead. This temporarily jeopardized all the organs Mer had hoped to transplant into a patient named Sara, who wanted to be planted in a whole. other way if she died. Eventually Jane learned again that her son was brain dead and inspired to donate his organs to Sara by Blue, who lied that he still thought about the people his late brother’s organs had saved. . (He didn’t even have a brother, he later admitted!) Despite Lucas’ near-catastrophic blunder, Nick invited him to participate in Sara’s operation. “End your day better than it started,” Marsh said. And that Lucas did, even quoting Uncle Derek in the OR “It’s a great day to save lives.”

    So, what did you think of the new residents? Do you have a first favourite? Link and Jules – aka Prince Charming and Snow White – will they reconnect? Have your say in the comments, then rate the episode in the poll below.
