Indianapolis Colts’ Philip Rivers leaps Dan Marino for fifth on career passing list

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Philip Rivers has moved ahead of Hall of Famer Dan Marino on the NFL’s all-time passing list.

Rivers’ first completion, an 11-yard pass to rookie running back Jonathan Taylor against the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night, moved him ahead of Marino for fifth in career passing yards.

Rivers, 38, entered the game in Nashville, Tennessee, with 61,358 passing yards in his 17-year career, needing just 4 yards to pass Marino. He finished the night 29-for-39 passing for 308 yards, putting him at 61,666 yards for his career. The Colts won 34-17.

The only other quarterbacks with more passing yards than Rivers are either in the Hall of Fame or will be first-ballot Hall of Famers at some point: Brett Favre, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and record-holder Drew Brees.

Rope Bridges Save the Most Endangered Primates From Making Death-Defying Leaps | Smart News

The last few dozen of the world’s most endangered primates, Hainan gibbons, live in small patches of rainforest on Hainan Island off southern China. In 2014, a landslide fractured their habitat, forcing the canopy-dwelling primates to make dangerous leaps to reach their food. Conservation scientists came up with an alternative path: a simple rope bridge that spans the gap between the sections of trees.

Now a study published on Thursday in Scientific Reports shows that Hainan gibbons can and do make use of the high ropes course. The gibbons took about six months to warm up to the idea, but 176 days after the rope bridge was installed, a few females and juveniles began to use it, study author Bosco Pui Lok Chan of the Hainan Gibbon Conservation Project tells Mary Bates at National Geographic. The gibbons invented unexpected bridge-crossing strategies, but the researchers emphasize that the bridge is
