Stick An 8 year-old Chinese boy, Li MuRong, is walking along the beach on his way home from school in costal city of Sanya on Hainan Island, when sees a vision that stops him dead in his tracks. This young boy is truly mesmerized by what he sees. To him this is just one of a million tricks on one of a thousand beaches he will visit in his life. I changed "England" to "Britain" as 'tiddler' is a common term throughout the island of great Britain not just in England.
Can someone confirm the situation in N Ireland otherwise this should be reverted to Britain. Yes, I can confirm that tiddler is commonly used in Ireland but as for N. I am not sure — Preceding unsigned comment added by Is an encyclopedia the right place for DIY tips like this?
Spicemix talk , 18 April UTC. The classic example is furnished by the stickleback, a small fish that boasts sharp spines [ Some bottom-living sticklebacks, however, find those spines a distinct disadvantage - they can for example, be grabbed by dragonfly larvae anxious to feed on their possessors.
As a result the bottom-livers have lost the spines apparently quite rapidly and recently. The modification is hardly trivial, involving as it does the elimination of an important part of a complex structure. But the major physical alteration has recently been shown to have occurred in the absence of any change in the coding genome. Instead, a small stretch of regulatory DNA has been deleted.
This has left the basic gene intact to do its essential task, but it has eradicated the development of spines by reducing its activity in a specific area of the body. I have just modified one external link on Stickleback.

Come along on a cyber-adventure and visit a famous and scientifically rewarding fossil locality on California's Mojave Desert--the badlands-forming Manix Formation, a sedimentary deposit of clays, silts and sands that accumulated in Late Pleistocene Lake Manix some to 18 thousand years ago; today, the Manix Formation yields a wonderful diversity of paleontologically significant fresh water Pleistocene remains: ostracods a minute bivalve crustacean ; gastropods; pelecypods; fish bones from the Tui Mojave Chub and Three-spine stickleback; a western pond turtle; and nearly 50 species of mammals and birds.
So, step back in time to a lush Late Pleistocene landscape of water and green and abundant animal life, a place where mammoths, dire wolves and scimitar cats once thrived in what is today a place of true desert. Please note, though, that because the fossil-bearing area now resides within Mojave Trails National Monument, collecting specimens of any kind--vertebrate or invertebrate--from the Upper Pleistocene Manix Formation is not allowed, except by special permit from the National Park Service; such a special use permit is issued solely to individuals with a minimum B.
And now for the obligatory words of caution. This is a potentially serious illness called, scientifically, Coccidioidomycosis, or "coccy" for short; it's caused by the inhalation of an infectious airborne fungus whose spores lie dormant in the uncultivated, harsh alkaline soils of the Mojave Desert. When an unsuspecting and susceptible individual breaths the spores into his or her lungs, the fungus springs to life, as it prefers the moist, dark recesses of the human lungs cats, dogs, rodents and even snakes, among other vertebrates, are also susceptible to "coccy" to multiply and be happy.
Most cases of active Valley Fever resemble a minor touch of the flu, though the majority of those exposed show absolutely no symptoms of any kind of illness; it is important to note, of course, that in rather rare instances Valley Fever can progress to a severe and serious infection, causing high fever, chills, unending fatigue, rapid weight loss, inflammation of the joints, meningitis, pneumonia and even death.
Every fossil prospector who chooses to visit the Mojave Desert must be fully aware of the risks involved. Several folks to thank Lake Manix Map. A collection of Manix images. Images: Manix Fish bones. Lake Manix was a flyway. Drawings Of Manix Animals.
