Yarding

 - 

During the daytime, the doors are left open for these chickens to choose whether to be in the yard or coop. This small poultry farm is in Hainan, China.

In poultry keeping, yarding is the practice of providing the poultry with a fenced yard in addition to a poultry house. Movable yarding is a form of managed intensive grazing.
Yarding is often confused with free range. The distinction is that free-range poultry are either totally unfenced, or the fence is so distant that it has little influence on their freedom of movement.

Historical practice[edit]
Before the discovery of vitamins A and D in the 1920s, green feed and sunshine were essential to the health of poultry. Vitamin D was synthesized from sunlight on the skin (as with humans), while Vitamin A was obtained through green forage plants such as grass. Yards small enough to be fenced economically were soon stripped of palatable green forage and become barren. This is followed by a build-up of manure, parasites, and other pathogens.
Free range husbandry was the most common method in these early days. Most farms had only a small free-range barnyard flock. Larger flocks were kept in small houses build on skids, which were dragged periodically to a fresh piece of ground. This method is similar to the modern practice of pastured poultry.
Experts of the day estimated the sustainable level to be about fifty hens per acre (80 m² per hen), with one hundred hens per acre (40 m² per hen) as an absolute upper limit if special care was taken. These levels are sustainable in the sense that the turf can make use of the nutrients in the manure left behind by the chickens, and in the sense that, at this stocking density, the chickens will not completely destroy the turf through scratching.

At the Oregon Station on clay soil it was found that the day droppings from 200 laying hens on an acre [20 m² per hen] in four years made the soil too rich for the successful growth of cereal crops where cropping the ground was done every other year. The night droppings were put on other land. If the soil contains too much manure for the crops it is safe to assume that it is not in the best condition for poultry. Sooner or later it is bound to show not only in a failure of grain crops but in failure of poultry crops. For a permanent system under average conditions of soil and climate the following points are suggested for consi

The rih (Ukrainian: Ріг, “horn”) is an instrument that was popular in Eastern Ukraine, with between three and six fingerholes, or sometimes none. Usually they were made from a cylindrical reed with a cow’s horn to form the bell. The mouthpiece usually has a single reed although occasionally double reed instruments can be found.

Satellite DNA

 - 

Satellite DNA consists of very large arrays of tandemly repeating, non-coding DNA. Satellite DNA is the main component of functional centromeres, and form the main structural constituent of heterochromatin.[1][2]
The name “satellite DNA” refers to how repetitions of a short DNA sequence tend to produce a different frequency of the bases adenine, cytosine, guanine and thymine, and thus have a different density from bulk DNA – such that they form a second or ‘satellite’ band when genomic DNA is separated on a density gradient.[citation needed]

Types of satellite DNA[edit]
Satellite DNA, together with minisatellite and microsatellite DNA, constitute the tandem repeats.[3]
Some types of satellite DNA in humans are:

Type
Size of repeat unit (bp)
Location

α (alphoid DNA)
171
All chromosomes

β
68
Centromeres of chromosomes 1, 9, 13, 14, 15, 21, 22 and Y

Satellite 1
25-48
Centromeres and other regions in heterochromatin of most chromosomes

Satellite 2
5
Most chromosomes

Satellite 3
5
Most chromosomes

Length[edit]
A repeated pattern can be between 1 base pair long (a mononucleotide repeat) to several thousand base pairs long[citation needed], and the total size of a satellite DNA block can be several megabases without interruption. Most satellite DNA is localized to the telomeric or the centromeric region of the chromosome. The nucleotide sequence of the repeats is fairly well conserved across species. However, variation in the length of the repeat is common. For example, minisatellite DNA is a short region (1-5kb) of 20-50 repeats. The difference in how many of the repeats is present in the region (length of the region) is the basis for DNA fingerprinting.[citation needed]
Origin[edit]
Microsatellites are thought to have originated by polymerase slippage during DNA replication. This comes from the observation that microsatellite alleles usually are length polymorphic; specifically, the length differences observed between microsatellite alleles are generally multiples of the repeat unit length.[citation needed]
Pathology[edit]
Microsatellites expansion (trinucleotide repeat expansion) is often found in transcription units. Often the base pair repetition will disrupt proper protein synthesis, leading to diseases such as myotonic dystrophy.[citation needed]

Satellite DNA adopts higher-order thre

In four playoff games, Upshall had two assists. After the season, he was named to the WHL All-Rookie Team, the CHL All-Rookie Team, and won the Jim Piggott Memorial Trophy as Rookie of the Year in the WHL, as well as the CHL Rookie of the Year.
Upshall had another very solid season with the Blazers in 2001–02, as he had 32 goals and 83 points in 61 games, followed by a goal and three points in four playoff games. Upshall also played for Canada at the 2002 World Junior Hockey Championship, where he had three goals and six points in seven games, helping the Canadians to the silver medal. After beginning the 2002–03 season with the Nashville Predators, Upshall was sent back to Kamloops on November 7, 2002. He then scored 25 goals and 56 points in 42 games with the Blazers.

Various artists

Guitar Solos is the debut solo album of English guitarist, composer, and improviser Fred Frith. It was recorded while Frith was still a member of the English experimental rock group Henry Cow and was released in the United Kingdom on LP record by Caroline Records in October 1974. The album comprises eight tracks of unaccompanied and improvised music played on prepared guitars by Frith without any overdubbing.
Guitar Solos was voted one of the best albums of 1974 by NME critics. AllMusic called it a landmark album because of its innovative and experimental approach to guitar playing. It also attracted the attention of Brian Eno, resulting in Frith’s playing guitar on two of Eno’s albums, and spawned two follow-up albums, Guitar Solos 2 (1976) and Guitar Solos 3 (1979). Guitar Solos was remastered and released on CD on Frith’s own record label, Fred Records, in 2002.

Background[edit]
Fred Frith was a classically-trained violinist who turned to playing blues guitar while still at school.[1] In 1967 he went to Cambridge University where he and fellow student, Tim Hodgkinson formed Henry Cow.[2] While at University, Frith read John Cage’s Silence: Lectures and Writings, which changed his attitude to music completely. He realised that “sound, in and of itself, can be as important as […] melody and harmony and rhythm.”[1] This changed his approach to the guitar, “just to see what I could get out of it”, and initiated a long period of experimentation that continued throughout Frith’s musical career.[1]
While the music of Henry Cow was highly orchestrated and structured, Frith also began to experiment with unstructured music, using prepared instruments and chance composition.[3] In June 1974, after the release of Henr

Early life[edit]
Kiwanuka was born in Indianapolis, Indiana and attended St. Simon the Apostle elementary/middle school and Cathedral High School, where he led the team to 3 straight IHSAA state championships and a national #5 ranking. At Cathedral he played tight end and linebacker and played with future NFL player OT Jeremy Trueblood.

Kiwanuka played in 49 games with 38 starts for Boston College and recorded 245 tackles (155 solo) and set school records with 37.5 sacks and 64.5 stops for losses. Also, he recovered 2 fumbles, including 1 for a 49-yard score, and had 3 forced fumbles. Also deflected 13 passes and intercepted 3 others, returning one 32 yards for a touchdown. Kiwanuka, who was widely regarded as one of the best pass rushing defensive ends in college, led the Big East Conference in sacks during the 2003 and 2004 seasons with 11.5 each season. He was an All-American in 2005. He finished his senior season with 51 tackles (34 solo) with 9.5 sacks and 16.5 tackles for losses. In 2005, he was involved in an incident with Virginia offensive tackle Brad Butler, who hit Kiwanuka after the whistle. Kiwanuka was for
