Two Lecturers Discover ‘Gigantic Fossil Site’ Near Aharbal Waterfall In Kulgam

KULGAM: Two lecturers, working in the School Education department Saturday claimed to have discovered a “gigantic fossil site” while scouting for fossil samples near world famous Aharbal waterfall in South Kashmir’s Kulgam district.

As per reports, the gigantic fossil site was discovered by two lectures namely Manzoor Javaid and Dr Rouf Hamza when they came across a site, which is rich in fossil diversity at specific locations aged between 488- 354 million years.

Notably, the site is located at a distance of about two kilometers from Ahrabal Waterfall in Kulgam district and the site is studded with thousands of fossil remains of diverse nature which got exposed due to weathering, construction of road and subsequent erosion.

Dr Rouf Hamza while talking with KNO said that thousands of fossils are visible at the site superficially without any excavation. “This is an indication that huge haul of fossils could be hidden beneath.”

He said that if the potential areas of the site are excavated, it may reveal an astonishing fossil world to the scientific community.

“During the preliminary investigation, it was revealed that the fossil samples fall between Ordovician and Devonian period. However, it needs to be ascertained through serious research and Carbon Dating.”

He said that the organisms commonly found during this period belong to Bryozoa (Fenestella, Fenestrillina, Trepestome, Rhombopore), Trilobites, Crinoids, Brachiopods, Corals etc. “However, the site needs to be evaluated for other fossil flora and fauna.”

Rouf claimed that till date, it is presumably the biggest find in J&K in terms of occurrence, area, diversity and age of the fossils.

“Interestingly most of the fossil sites have been discovered either by the foreigners or by the professionals. However, this is the only discovery in Jammu and Kashmir made by the amateur fossil hunters,” he claimed. (KNO)

    I oversee a vape store directory and we have had a posting from a vape store in the USA that likewise sells CBD products. A Calendar month later on, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been limited and have requested us to remove PayPal as a payment method from our vape shop submission site. We do not offer CBD goods like CBD oil. We only provide marketing and advertising professional services to CBD firms. I have visited Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Top Wellness Retail store and if you take a close peek, you will witness that they supply a surprisingly comprehensive variety of CBD products, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a settlement solution. It appears that PayPal is administering double standards to many different companies. Due to this limitation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related online site. This has constricted my payment options and now, I am intensely contingent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have consulted with a solicitor from a Magic Circle law firm in London and they said that what PayPal is undertaking is altogether illegal and inequitable as it ought to be applying a systematic criterion to all firms. I am yet to consult with an additional attorney from a US law office in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. In the meantime, I would be very appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could provide me with substitute payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD firms.
