Leading broad-acre seed brand Pacific Seeds hopes to ‘unlock’ heat stress tolerant genes in sorghum that will deliver new varieties better suited to our changing climate. Forest Hill sorghum grower Tim Pocock said research into new varieties was always welcome. Mr Pocock said if traits could be isolated and bred into varieties to better withstand heat stress, it would be an important tool for grain growers. It’s definitely another aspect for risk management – if you think it could get hot, you might plant a percentage to one variety to cater for that. Mr Pocock usually plants more than 80 hectares of sorghum on his properties in early October to harvest in late January or February, depending on the year. He isn’t fixed on one variety, trying as many different types as he can, but recently he has been using Pioneer Seeds’ sorghum varieties. He said the Lockyer Valley was a strong area to grow sorghum. Mr Pocock has not planted a crop this year due to the severe drought conditions.

The blonde girl was approached by a blogger in the Russian city of Krasnoyarsk and asked what she would do to get her hands on the Apple product.
Blogger Dmitry Shilov was with two pals and approached more than a dozen women, with most saying they they were not willing to do anything for the smartphone. But then they spotted Ksenia who was asked if she would strip for the iPhone 5s. She agreed and said she would be filmed but didn’t want to do it in the street.
The ontogeny of the nasolacrimal ducts (NLD) and canals (NLC) are investigated in strepsirrhine and haplorhine primates. Developmental series of serially sectioned fetal, perinatal and adult specimens, in combination with juvenile and adult skulls subjected to high-resolution computed tomography.
What was the first thing you thought about me when you saw me? Everyone wants to know what others thought about them during those crucial first moments. Did your man have a good first impression about you? Was he in love with your smile or drooling over something else? Perhaps he loved your funny personality or liked your rugged style. What did you think of our first date? First dates can either be magical or awkward. But no matter how it ended up, he obviously liked you enough to continue with the relationship.
We still want to know the pros and cons though!
The size of jaguars tends to increase the farther south they are located. The jaguar, a compact and well-muscled animal, is the largest cat in the New World and the largest carnivorous mammal in Central and South America. The length, from the nose to the base of the tail, of the cats varies from 1. The base coat of the jaguar is generally a tawny yellow, but can range to reddish-brown, for most of the body.
However, the ventral areas are white. The spots vary over individual coats and between individual jaguars:

Developmental series of serially sectioned fetal, perinatal and adult specimens, in combination with juvenile and adult skulls subjected to high-resolution computed tomography, reveal that the vertical NLC and NLD of adult tarsiers and anthropoids are produced by the degeneration of a more horizontal anterior arm of the NLD that is present only transiently in haplorhines, but is maintained throughout life in strepsirrhines. The similar mode by which the anterior arm of the membranous NLD degenerates in tarsiers and anthropoids strongly suggests that the conditions in these two taxa are homologous, and provides additional evidence for a monophyletic Haplorhini.
The functional relationship between the nasolacrimal duct and the vomeronasal organ is reviewed in light of this evidence, and it is suggested that these changes in the haplorhine NLD were functionally linked to the development of anatomical haplorhinism of the oronasal complex. Strepsirrhini lemurs, lorises and galagos and Haplorhini tarsiers and anthropoids , originally named for their external nasal anatomy Pocock, An alternative classification, grouping tarsiers with strepsirrhines, has historically been based on their gradistic similarity e.

Despite the phylogenetic significance of the primate nasal region, the morphology of the nasolacrimal duct NLD has received little attention.
