We found that females directed aggression at more MHC similar males than expected by chance, providing a possible mechanism of female MHC choice in salmon. Males also directed aggression towards MHC similar females, which was consistent with males harassing unreceptive mates. Males’ aggression was positively correlated with their reproductive success, and it appeared to overcome female aversion to mating with MHC similar males, as females who were the target of high levels of male aggression had lower than expected MHC divergence in their offspring.
In the spirit of Sam McBratney and Anita Jeram’s classic “Guess How Much I Love You,” “I Love You More Than the Smell of Swamp Gas” is a tale of love that is a little, uh, smellier. A bulbous green swamp monster and his little pink offspring romp through a haunted woods, proclaiming love along the way. How much does the swamp monster love his little monster? As much as “bubbling slime that covers our feet in a thick gooey grime” and “more than moonstruck raccoons.” Atteberry’s cheery graphic illustrations are never scary and kids will love his ooey gooey words of love..
Front legs are at 15 degrees, sighted at a point on the CL 5 back from the front of the seat. May sound like gibberish to someone unfamiliar with the language of Windsor chairs, but it was all I needed. The good news is that I already had Curtis Buchanan continuous arm plans as a Christmas present from my in laws.
Still the nestlings kept up their begging calls and I was able to distinguish the female nestling from the male. She had a crest that wasn’t as large as the male’s and she lacked the male’s dark red line on the side of his jaw. Both were a bit fuzzy looking, their crests developed but not as erect as their parents’ crests..
Although this caf originally opened as part of the Tasti D Lite frozen yogurt chain, it became immediately clear its main draw was not faux ice cream but the rest of the menu: sparkling, crisp salads; genuinely light yet assertively flavorful spicy sesame linguine; and baked goods. The bagels (95 cents each, $1.75 with cream cheese) are not housemade not so surprising considering the small place’s commitment to quality: Tasti’s owners do not begin to pretend a decent bagel can be crafted without New York City water. Consequently, their bagels flavors include plain, sesame, and onion, no chocolate chip/sun dried tomato sissy stuff are flown in from H in NYC.
Because the pixels of a Plasma TV light only very briefly, the sub field drive must excite them electrically, causing them to flash, multiple times per frame. Typically a plasma TV will have a 60 frames per second rate and, if the subfield drive excites the pixels 10x/frame, then the sub field motion will be said to be 600Hz. The difference between say 480Hz and 600Hz may be noticeable only during fast action sequences..
