Heuchera

Heuchera [1] is a genus of evergreen,[2] herbaceous perennial plants in the family Saxifragaceae, all native to North America. Common names include alumroot and coral bells.[3] Description Heuchera have palmately lobed leaves on long petioles, and a thick, woody rootstock. The genus was named after Johann Heinrich von Heucher (1677–1746), an 18th-century German physician,[4] and Professor at Wittenberg University.[5] There are approximately 37 species, but the taxonomy of the genus is difficult because the species often intergrade with one another, hybridization is common, and the flowers change markedly in proportion as they develop.[4] Distribution and habitat Alumroot species grow in varied habitats, so some species look quite different from one another, and have varying preferences regarding temperature, soil, and other natural factors. H. maxima is found on the Channel Islands of California, where it grows on rocky, windy, saline-washed ocean shores, and H. sanguinea, called coral bells because of it ...more...

Flash and circle

The flag of the British Union of Fascists, known as the "Union Banner" The flash and circle is a political symbol used by several organisations. It was first used by the British Union of Fascists (BUF), and was adopted in 1935. The BUF had originally used the fasces as its symbol, first on a black disc on a gold background and later in gold with a lightning bolt struck through it on a black background. The flash and circle was designed as a more abstract depiction of the concept of the fasces incorporating the lightning of the 1933 flag within a "circle of unity" and the British national colours of red, white and blue. Oswald Mosley's post-war group the Union Movement and his National Party of Europe initiative continued to use the flash. The original flag used from 1932 until 1933 The second flag, known as the "Fascist Flag", used as the Movement's sole flag from 1933 to 1935 and later in tandem with the flash and circle The BUF's two earlier flags, showing the evolution of their symbolism from th ...more...

Fender Cyclone

The Fender Cyclone denotes a series of electric guitars made by Fender. Introduced in late 1997, the Cyclone body is similarly styled to the Mustang, but it is a quarter of an inch thicker than the body of a Mustang and is made of poplar, whereas contemporary Mustang reissues were made of basswood. In July 2002, the Cyclone II was introduced as the successor to the Fender Cyclone and featured cosmetic changes such as the Mustang racing stripe as well as 3 vintage single-coil pickups and switching borrowed from the Fender Jaguar. As of 2006 the range included the original Cyclone, the Cyclone HH with two humbuckers, and the Cyclone II with three MIA Jaguar pickups controlled by on-off switches in place of the selector switch. As of January 2007, all Cyclone variants had been discontinued by Fender.

Seismic risk in Malta

Seismic risk in Malta

Seismic risk in Malta is considered to be low with little historic damage noted and no known victims. The archipelago is however in a potentially significant seismic zone and the risk to the population is probably undervalued. Tectonics Map of tectonic plates in the eastern Mediterranean The Maltese archipelago rests on an underwater plateau, a relatively stable part of the African plate. The islands are situated around 200 km to the south of the subduction fault between the African plates and the Eurasian plates. The pelagic plate forms a shallow platform separating the Ionian basin from the Western Mediterranean basin, situated roughly under the Sicilian Channel. The plate is crossed by a rift zone formed of three grabens: the Pantelleria graben, that of Malta, and that of Linosa. These grabens are linked by a system of North-South orientation faults (sometimes West-East) with dextral cavities that are responsible for most of the earthquakes that can affect the archipelago.[1] The islands themselves a ...more...

Buck-lateral series

topic

Buck-lateral series

Buck-lateral is an American football play or a series of plays used in the Single-wing formation. Since the Single-Wing formation lost prominence by 1950, the football play referred to as the Buck-lateral is almost gone from football's vocabulary. However, prior to this time, the buck-lateral play gave fullbacks the option to run, lateral, or hand-off the ball to another player. Running the buck-lateral required an offensive scheme that needed the fullback to possess many specialized skills, as opposed to today's fullback who mainly blocks and carries the ball infrequently. Origin of name Before the invention of the Single-Wing offense by Pop Warner, offenses used simple plays designed for runners to attack the defensive front behind massed line blocking. This battering ram approach usually involved the biggest runner, the fullback, as his main role was to "buck" or smash the middle of the defensive front. The term lateral describes a short toss from one back to another that does not advance the ball. (se ...more...

4-HO-MiPT

4-HO-MiPT (miprocin, 4-hydroxy-N-methyl-N-isopropyltryptamine) is a synthetic substituted aromatic compound and a lesser-known psychedelic tryptamine. It is thought to be a serotonergic psychedelic, similar to magic mushrooms, LSD and mescaline. Its molecular structure and pharmacological effects somewhat resemble those of the tryptamine psilocin, which is the primary psychoactive chemical in magic mushrooms. History 4-HO-MiPT was presumably first synthesized by Alexander Shulgin. Its synthesis is described in his book TiHKAL along with reports by people who had ingested the compound. Shulgin's trials and other anecdotal information suggest that 4-HO-MiPT is a synthetic psychedelic similar in activity to psilocin. It is relatively uncommon and has only a short history of human use. Chemistry Miprocin is the 4-hydroxyl analog of the chemical N-methyl-N-isopropyltryptamine as well as the isopropyl homolog and possible structural analog of 4-HO-DMT.

Oscillating cylinder steam engine

A simple oscillating cylinder engine, part of a Mamod SE2 working steam model An oscillating cylinder steam engine (also known as a wobbler in the US) is a simple steam-engine design (proposed by William Murdoch at the end of 18th century) that requires no valve gear. Instead the cylinder rocks, or oscillates, as the crank moves the piston, pivoting in the mounting trunnion so that ports in the cylinder line up with ports in a fixed port face alternately to direct steam into or out of the cylinder. Oscillating cylinder steam engines are now mainly used in toys and models but, in the past, have been used in full-size working engines, mainly on ships and small stationary engines. They have the advantage of simplicity and, therefore, low manufacturing costs. They also tend to be more compact than other types of cylinder of the same capacity, which makes them advantageous for use in ships.

Chloroplast capture

Chloroplast capture is an evolutionary process through which inter-species hybridization and subsequent backcrosses yield a plant with new genetic combination of nuclear and chloroplast genomes.[1] For instance, 1) species A's (having chloroplast genome a and nuclear genome AA) pollen hybridizes (backcross) to species B's (b and BB) ovule, yielding the 1st hybrid (F1) with chloroplast genome b and nuclear genome A (50%) and B (50%); 2) species A's pollen again hybridizes (backcross) to F1's ovule, yielding the 2nd hybrid (F2) with chloroplast genome b and nuclear genome A (75%) and B (25%); 3) species A's pollen again hybridizes (backcross) to F2's ovule, yielding the 3rd hybrid (F3) with chloroplast genome b and nuclear genome A (87.5%) and B (12.5%); 4) after further backcross generations, a plant is obtained with the new genetic combination (chloroplast genome b and nuclear genome A).

Chico Ejiro

Chico Ejiro (born Chico Maziakpono in Isoko, Delta, Nigeria) is a Nigerian movie director and producer. Little is known about Ejiro other than he originally studied agriculture, and he was drawn into video production because Nigerians would not buy blank videocassettes. His enormous body of work is typical of the second generation that started in the 1990s when cheap video-production equipment became available in the country. He owns a production company called Grand Touch Pictures, which is based in Lagos. Nicknamed Mr. Prolific, he directed over 80 movies within a 5-year period—each one shot in as little as three days. They feature story lines relevant to Nigerians but have poor production quality: terrible acting, muddled sound, and amateurish cinematography are prevalent throughout his oeuvre. The exact number of movies he has worked on as either director, producer, or both is unknown, but it ranges in the hundreds as of 2007. He was profiled in an article in The New York Times, dated May 26, 2002 (“When ...more...

Thabit ibn Qais was a Sahaba, a first generation Muslim, someone who was converted by Muhammad himself. He played a prominent role in the meeting at the Saqifah.[1] Two alternative accounts of his death exist. The more credible one attributes it to falling in a battlefield in Najd during the Rashidun Caliphate period. Alternatively, Chinese Muslims hold that he was involved in the introduction of Islam to China during the Tang dynasty period when he reached China over land and died of in the western Chinese province of Xinjiang.[2] References "SUNNI VIEWS ON THE CALIPHATE".

Front limber

A front limber is a gymnastics skill where the gymnast performs a handstand, carries the momentum forward, landing in a bridge, and then pulls their upper body upwards, ending in a standing position. It is related to a front walkover, but it is a variant as both legs are carried forward at once whereas each leg is taken over separately in a walkover. This is how it is done correctly: Kick up into handstand, and hold it momentarily. Push shoulders 'out' and arch the back, with feet together and toes pointed. Bend knees until feet land on the floor. Immediately push the hips forward and push off the hands to stand up ending with arms overhead. Tips: Look at hands throughout Land with feet about a foot apart Stretch back before doing a front limber If doing for the first time, do on to a raised surface (sofa, mat) as the back does not have to arch as much.
