By Stacy Liberatore For Dailymail. It was previously believed that fungi emerged some million years ago, but a new discovery has rewritten the timeline for when the spore-producing organisms first colonized Earth. Researchers say it evolved during the Ediacaran period, when the planet was coming out of a catastrophic ice age and the microorganism may have played a key role in its recovery. Together with other terrestrial microbes, the fungi-like organism had the ability to accelerate chemical weather and deliver phosphorus to oceans that stimulated marine bioproductivity. An international team of scientists uncovered a million-year-old fungi-like microfossil — making it the oldest terrestrial fossil on record - in cavities within rocks of South China. The fossil was discovered within well-studied sedimentary dolostone rocks of the lowermost Doushantuo Formation in South China by scientists from Virginia Tech, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Guizhou Education University, and University of Cincinnati.

On Thursday, Warner Bros. T shocked the media landscape by announcing plans to air all of its movies on HBO Max — the same day the films hit theaters. But is it really the end of the industry as we know it? Maybe not quite yet, according to one analyst. However, the immediate threat facing theaters is very real, and time is running out for chains like AMC AMC to avoid bankruptcy.
A high-profile CEO has called on Australian businesses to boycott Chinese products in the wake of growing hostilities. Last week Beijing slapped a crippling per cent tariff on Australian wine and on Monday a top Chinese diplomat tweeted an image depicting an Australian holding a knife to the throat of an Afghan child. We have made this decision.
