Alicyclobacillus hesperidum sp. nov. and a related genomic species from solfataric soils of Sao Miguel in the Azores. (1/33)

Several acidophilic, slightly thermophilic or thermophilic Gram-positive isolates were recovered from solfataric soil at Furnas on the Island of Sao Miguel in the Azores. Phylogenetic analysis of the 16S rRNA gene sequence showed that these organisms represented two novel species of the genus Alicyclobacillus. Strains FR-11T and FR-1b had an optimum growth temperature of about 50 degrees C, whereas strains FR-3 and FR-6T had an optimum growth temperature of about 60 degrees C. Biochemical, physiological and chemotaxonomic characteristics did not distinguish isolates FR-3 and FR-6T from the type strain of Alicyclobacillus acidocaldarius; however, strains FR-11T and FR-1b could be easily distinguished from the type strain of Alicyclobacillus acidoterrestris by the carbon source assimilation pattern and the fatty acid composition. On the basis of the phylogenetic analysis, physiological and biochemical characteristics, and fatty acid composition the name Alicyclobacillus hesperidum is proposed for the species represented by strains FR-11T and FR-1b; a formal name for the new genomic species represented by strains FR-3 and FR-6T is not proposed at this time.  (+info)

Marinitoga camini gen. nov., sp. nov., a rod-shaped bacterium belonging to the order Thermotogales, isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal vent. (2/33)

A thermophilic, anaerobic, chemo-organotrophic sulfur-reducing bacterium, designated MV1075T, was isolated from a deep-sea hydrothermal chimney sample collected on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. Cells were rod-shaped with a sheath-like outer structure, motile with polar flagella and stained Gram-negative. They appeared singly, in pairs or in short chains. The temperature range for growth was 25-65 degrees C, with an optimum at 55 degrees C. Growth was observed from pH 5 to pH 9, and the optimum pH was around 7. The salinity range for growth was 15-70 g sea salt l(-1) (corresponding to 10-45 g NaCl l(-1)), with an optimum at 30 g l(-1) (20 g NaCl l(-1)). The isolate was able to grow on a broad spectrum of carbohydrates or complex proteinaceous substrates. Sulfur was not necessary for growth. Growth was inhibited by H2, but, in presence of sulfur, this inhibition was removed and H2S was produced. The G+C content of the genomic DNA was 29 mol %. Phylogenetic analyses of the 16S rRNA gene located the strain within the order Thermotogales, in the domain Bacteria. On the basis of 16S rDNA sequence comparisons, in combination with morphological and physiological characteristics, it is proposed that the isolate should be described as a novel species of a new genus, Marinitoga gen. nov., of which Marinitoga camini sp. nov. is the type species. The type strain is MV1075T (= CNCM 1-2413T = DSM 13578T).  (+info)

Prevalence of spondyloarthritis in Terceira, Azores: a population based study. (3/33)

OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence of spondyloarthritis (SpA) in the Caucasian population of Terceira Island, Azores. METHODS: Study subjects were recruited from people over the age of 50 years from one half of the island of Terceira (n=24 561). Seventy eight men and 78 women from each five year age group were selected, giving a total of 468 men and 468 women available for study, of whom 490 agreed to take part. These subjects were assessed by dorsal, lumbar, and pelvic radiography. Radiological sacroiliitis was identified in eight patients on whom sacroiliac computed tomography scans were performed. HLA class I typing by polymerase chain reaction with sequence-specific primers was carried out in seven cases. RESULTS: SpA was present in eight subjects (1.6%, 95% CI 0.8 to 2.7%), including seven men (2.7%) and one woman (0.4%). Three (1.2% ) male patients with definite ankylosing spondylitis were HLA-B27 positive. Only one person had a previous diagnosis of SpA. CONCLUSION: These data complement previous studies in European countries on SpA prevalence and establish an estimate of the overall prevalence of SpA in a southern European population.  (+info)

Genetic differentiation reflects geological history in the Azorean land snail, Leptaxis azorica. (4/33)

The land snail Leptaxis azorica, endemic on the Azores, was subjected to an electrophoretic (allozymes) and morphometric (genital tract) analysis. Genetic distances suggest the presence of four distinct lineages and are compatible with colonisation proceeding from the eastern, older islands (Santa Maria and Sao Miguel) to the west (Flores and Corvo). On Sao Miguel, genetic and morphometric differentiation is concordant with the separate colonisation of two islands that gave rise to the current island 50,000 years ago. The maximum time available for differentiation in isolation (0.55 million years) suggests a high rate of allozyme change between the two lineages on Sao Miguel. This may be related to population isolation and bottlenecks caused by human and volcanic activity on Sao Miguel in relatively recent times. This is more prominent in the eastern region where populations are also characterised by reduced genetic variation (loss of alleles and heterozygosity) compared to populations elsewhere.  (+info)

Sulfurihydrogenibium azorense, sp. nov., a thermophilic hydrogen-oxidizing microaerophile from terrestrial hot springs in the Azores. (5/33)

Five hydrogen-oxidizing, thermophilic, strictly chemolithoautotrophic, microaerophilic strains, with similar (99-100%) 16S rRNA gene sequences were isolated from terrestrial hot springs at Furnas, Sao Miguel Island, Azores, Portugal. The strain, designated Az-Fu1T, was characterized. The motile, 0.9-2.0 microm rods were Gram-negative and non-sporulating. The temperature growth range was from 50 to 73 degrees C (optimum at 68 degrees C). The strains grew fastest in 0.1% (w/v) NaCl and at pH 6, although growth was observed from pH 5.5 to 7.0. Az-Fu1T can use elemental sulfur, sulfite, thiosulfate, ferrous iron or hydrogen as electron donors, and oxygen (0.2-9.0%, v/v) as electron acceptor. Az-Fu1T is also able to grow anaerobically, with elemental sulfur, arsenate and ferric iron as electron acceptors. The Az-Fu1T G+C content was 33.6 mol%. Maximum-likelihood analysis of the 16S rRNA phylogeny placed the isolate in a distinct lineage within the Aquificales, closely related to Sulfurihydrogenibium subterraneum (2.0% distant). The 16S rRNA gene of Az-Fu1T is 7.7% different from that of Persephonella marina and 6.8% different from Hydrogenothermus marinus. Based on the phenotypic and phylogenetic characteristics presented here, it is proposed that Az-Fu1T belongs to the recently described genus Sulfurihydrogenibium. It is further proposed that Az-Fu1T represents a new species, Sulfurihydrogenibium azorense.  (+info)

Understanding differences between phylogenetic and pedigree-derived mtDNA mutation rate: a model using families from the Azores Islands (Portugal). (6/33)

We analyzed the control region of the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) from maternally related individuals originating from the Azores Islands (Portugal) in order to estimate the mutation rate of mtDNA and to gain insights into the process by which a new mutation arises and segregates into heteroplasmy. Length and/or point heteroplasmies were found at least in one individual of 72% of the studied families. Eleven new point substitutions were found, all of them in heteroplasmy, from which five appear to be somatic mutations and six can be considered germinal, evidencing the high frequency of somatic mutations in mtDNA in healthy young individuals. Different values of the mutation rate according to different assumptions were estimated. When considering all the germinal mutations, the value of the mutation rate obtained is one of the highest reported so far in family studies. However, when corrected for gender (assuming that the mutations present in men have the same evolutionary weight of somatic mutations because they will inevitably be lost) and for the probability of intraindividual fixation, the value for the mutation rate obtained for HVRI and HVRII (0.2415 mutations/site/Myr) was in the upper end of the values provided by phylogenetic estimations. These results indicate that the discrepancy, that has been reported previously, between the human mtDNA mutation rates observed along evolutionary timescales and the estimations obtained using family pedigrees can be minimized when corrections for gender proportions in newborn individuals and for the probability of intraindividual fixation are introduced. The analyses performed support the hypothesis that (1) in a constant, tight bottleneck genetic drift alone can explain different patterns of heteroplasmy segregation and (2) in neutral conditions, the destiny of a new mutation is strictly related to the initial proportion of the new variant. Another important point arising from the data obtained is that, even in the absence of a paternal contribution of mtDNA, recombination may occur between mtDNA molecules present in an individual, which is only observable if it occurs between mtDNA types that differ at two or more positions.  (+info)

Ectopic calcification among families in the Azores: clinical and radiologic manifestations in families with diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis and chondrocalcinosis. (7/33)

OBJECTIVE: Twelve families that were multiply affected with diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) and/or chondrocalcinosis, were identified on the island of Terceira, The Azores, potentially supporting the hypothesis that the 2 disorders share common etiopathogenic factors. The present study was undertaken to investigate this hypothesis. METHODS: One hundred three individuals from 12 unrelated families were assessed. Probands were identified from patients attending the Rheumatic Diseases Clinic, Hospital de Santo Espirito, in The Azores. Family members were assessed by rheumatologists and radiologists. Radiographs of all family members were obtained, including radiographs of the dorsolumbar spine, pelvis, knees, elbows, and wrists, and all cases were screened for known features of chondrocalcinosis. RESULTS: Ectopic calcifications were identified in 70 patients. The most frequent symptoms or findings were as follows: axial pain, elbow, knee and metacarpophalangeal (MCP) joint pain, swelling, and/or deformity, and radiographic enthesopathic changes. Elbow and MCP joint periarticular calcifications were observed in 35 and 5 patients, respectively, and chondrocalcinosis was identified in 12 patients. Fifteen patients had sacroiliac disease (ankylosis or sclerosis) on computed tomography scans. Fifty-two patients could be classified as having definite (17%), probable (26%), or possible (31%) DISH. Concomitant DISH and chondrocalcinosis was diagnosed in 12 patients. Pyrophosphate crystals were identified from knee effusions in 13 patients. The pattern of disease transmission was compatible with an autosomal-dominant monogenic disease. The mean age at which symptoms developed was 38 years. CONCLUSION: These families may represent a familial type of pyrophosphate arthropathy with a phenotype that includes peripheral and axial enthesopathic calcifications. The concurrence of DISH and chondrocalcinosis suggests a shared pathogenic mechanism in the 2 conditions.  (+info)

Human leptospirosis in Portugal: A retrospective study of eighteen years. (8/33)

INTRODUCTION: Leptospirosis, an under-recognized public health problem, needs to be confirmed through specific laboratory diagnosis. DESIGN: We describe herein a series of 4618 symptomatic patients for whom a microagglutination test (MAT) serology was available, representing a unique picture of human leptospirosis in central mainland Portugal and the Azores islands of Sao Miguel and Terceira, over eighteen- and twelve-year periods, respectively. RESULTS: The distribution of the 1024 (22%) cases identified was an average 57 cases per year, with higher frequency in males (67%). These represent the majority of leptospirosis notifications in Portugal, with a higher annual incidence rate in the islands, compared to the central mainland (11.1 and 1.7/100,000 population, respectively). Middle-aged adults (25-54 years) were most frequently infected (45%). Cases occurred mainly in December and January. Serovars from nine presumptive serogroups caused infection, with a predominance of Icterohaemorrhagiae, Pomona, and Ballum, accounting for 66% of cases. CONCLUSIONS: Seropositivity was associated with both anicteric and icteric leptospirosis. Several risk factors and a higher transmission risk in certain areas were emphasized. Leptospirosis was confirmed as a steadily increasing public health problem; good surveillance, communication, and laboratory support are thus necessary to reduce the impact of leptospirosis in areas at risk.  (+info)

Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) genes are characterized by high levels of polymorphism and linkage disequilibrium (LD), important characteristics to study the genetic background of human populations and their genetic structure. Here, we analyse the allele distribution and LD extent of HLA class I and II in São Miguel Island population (Azores archipelago, Portugal). The sample set was composed of 106 healthy blood donors living in São Miguel Island obtained from the anonymized Azorean DNA bank. HLA class I (-A, -B and -Cw) and class II (-DRB1, -DQB1, -DPA1 and -DPB1) genotyping was performed by PCR-SSP Olerup SSP™ (GenoVision Inc.), according to the manufacturers instructions. Genetic diversity values, based on the 7 loci, ranged from 0.821 both for HLA-DPA1 and -DQB1 to 0.934 for HLA-B, with a mean value of 0.846. Analysis of 5 HLA-A-Cw-B-DRB1-DQB1 haplotypes revealed that A*01-Cw*07-B*08-DRB1*03-DQB1*02 is the most frequent in São Miguel (7.9%) followed by A*24-B*08-Cw*07-DRB1*03-DQB1*02 (3.8%).
The severity of the disease is related to the age of onset, with earlier onset associated with a more severe form of the disease. Symptoms can begin any time between early adolescence and about 70 years of age. MJD is also a progressive disease, meaning that symptoms get worse with time. Life expectancy ranges from the mid-thirties for those with severe forms of MJD to a normal life expectancy for those with mild forms. For those who die early from the disease, the cause of death is often aspiration pneumonia. The name, Machado-Joseph, comes from two families of Portuguese/Azorean descent who were among the first families described with the unique symptoms of the disease in the 1970s. The prevalence of the disease is still highest among people of Portuguese/Azorean descent. For immigrants of Portuguese ancestry in New England, the prevalence is around one in 4,000. The highest prevalence in the world, about one in 140, occurs on the small Azorean island of Flores. Recently, researchers have ...

The aim of this study was to verify the relation between body mass index (BMI) and sitting time in a sample of 4,091 Azorean men. BMI was calculated from self-reported weight and height. Total physical activity (PA) time and total sitting time were assessed with the IPAQ (short version). Linear Regression analysis showed that total sitting time (hours/day) was positively associated with BMI (B = 0.078; p | 0.001) after adjustments for age, meal frequency, alcohol and tobacco consumptions, island of residence, education level and total PA time. Although the cross sectional design precludes us from establishing causality, our findings emphasize the importance of reducing sedentary behavior to decrease the risk of obesity.

The island of Flores is the most westerly of the Azores archipelago (Portugal). Despite its marked geographic isolation and reduced population size, biodemographic and genetic studies conducted so far do not support the idea that its population constitutes a genetic isolate. In this study we conducted a surname analysis of the Flores population for two time periods: the second half of the 19th century and the present day. Our main purposes were (1) to biodemographically and genetically characterize the island, taking into account the strong reduction in population observed from the middle of the 19th century to the present day; and (2) to analyze the influence that the effective population size and geographic distance have on the genetic structure of populations. For both periods analyzed, all indicators of diversity revealed a high level of surname diversity. Our results are in accordance with the diversity estimates obtained from both monoparental genetic markers located in the Y chromosome and

Introduction. This study aimed to evaluate the screening performance of different measures of adiposity: body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), and waist-to-height ratio (WHtR) for high metabolic risk in a sample of adolescents. Methods. A cross-sectional school-based study was conducted on 517 adolescents aged 15-18, from the Azorean Islands, Portugal. We measured fasting glucose, insulin, total cholesterol (TC), HDL-cholesterol, triglycerides, and systolic blood pressure. HOMA and TC/HDL-C ratio were calculated. For each of these variables, a Z-score was computed by age and sex. A metabolic risk score (MRS) was constructed by summing the Z-scores of all individual risk factors. High risk was considered when the individual had ≥1SD of this score. Receiver-operating characteristics (ROC) were used. Results. Linear regression analyses showed that, after adjusting for age and pubertal stage, all different measures of adiposity are positively and significantly associated with MRS in both sexes,

ABSTRACT: A wide range of anthropogenic activities are impacting the ecology of coastal areas. Exploitation of marine resources is one such activity, which, through cascading trophic effects, can have influences well beyond that of the target species. We investigated the mid-rocky-shore community structure of the Azores archipelago, a seldom-studied habitat, where there is a local tradition of exploiting limpets, the main intertidal grazers. The limpet population structure differed among islands, and there was an inverse relationship between the abundance of larger limpets and the human population per coastal perimeter, but not the associated catch data. At small scales of resolution (quadrats), there was a negative relationship between the cover of algae and limpets and a positive relationship between barnacles and limpets. These relationships were also apparent at the larger scale of islands as a function of the gradient of exploitation. Our results show how natural habitat fragmentation may ...

Esta é uma canção cantada somente por Art Garfunkel, acompanhado pelo piano por Larry Knechtel---um músico de estúdio que apareceria paralelamente, na ocasião, noutros projetos, tocando com David Gates, no conjunto Bread. A música dura 4min:52segs e sua forma é estrófica, tendo no total 3 versos, quais os dois primeiros terminam com a frase like a bridge over troubled water, I will lay me down (Como uma ponte sobre águas turbulentas, eu me estenderei) e no terceiro e último verso a frase muda para like a bridge over troubled water, I will ease your mind (como uma ponte sobre águas turbulentas, eu aliviarei suas preocupações), e ao qual a melodia da cadência final e o texto se repetem em um crescendo forte e vivo. A música é interpretada num estilo de balada lenta, usando os acordes simples como de uma progressão harmônica de um lento Blues gospel (I-IV e V), iniciando lenta e piano com um crescendo, poco à poco, até um final vivace, num enorme clímax na terceira estrofe. ...
Karsten Vogel toca órgão em vez de seu sax característico tanto na faixa de abertura Second Floor, Croydon, na segunda música WWW e na terceira canção Avez- Vous Kaskelainen enquanto Kim Menzer toca a flauta em vez de seu sax de costume.

A segunda, denominada Mina do Apertado (MA), foi construída, em 1996, usando, como material de cobertura, o sólum proveniente do decapeamento de um morro adjacente à área. A terceira ...
Após dois meses de ausência filmando o The Marine 4: Moving Target, The Miz retornou em 30 de junho no Raw insultando aos fans, adotando um personagem de estrela de cinema arrogante, onde foi interrompido por Chris Jericho. Uma semana depois, Miz foi derrotado por Chris Jericho em seu combate de retorno ao ringue. No Battleground, venceu uma batalha real após eliminar Dolph Ziggler para se tornar o novo Campeão Intercontinental da WWE pela terceira vez,[170] e perdendo em seguida para Ziggler no SummerSlam.[171] Mais tarde naquele mesmo mês, Damien Sandow começou a aparecer com Miz como seu stunt double (imitando todos os movimentos e maneirismos de Miz), sendo reconhecido como Damien Mizdow.[172] No Night of Champions, Miz derrotou Ziggler para recapturar o Campeonato Intercontinental, perdendo o título na noite seguinte no Raw.[173] Em 29 de setembro no Raw, Miz novamente lutou pelo título em combate de ameaça tripla envolvendo Cesaro, onde Ziggler reteve. Após derrotar Sheamus ...
Objetivo: a maioria dos corpos estranhos aspirados para a via aérea é removida através de endoscopia respiratória. Em situações raras, a retirada deste material tem que ser realizada sob controle endoscópico, através de traqueotomia ou traqueostomia. A seguir, relatamos casos de crianças cuja remoção de corpos estranhos aspirados para a via aérea foi realizada por abertura traqueal. Descrição: revisão retrospectiva de prontuários, com relato de três crianças que aspiraram corpos estranhos para a via aérea. A primeira apresentou ruptura da cânula de traqueostomia, com aspiração da porção distal da mesma. Foi realizada remoção endoscópica através do traqueostoma. A segunda aspirou tampa de caneta, que não conseguia ser removida endoscopicamente, pois a mesma trancava e não passava na região subglótica. Foi realizado, então, traqueotomia cervical e remoção do corpo estranho sob controle endoscópico. A terceira apresentou corpo estranho aspirado para o brônquio ...

pt] O objetivo desta pesquisa é investigar se a introdução do tempo no pensamento é o que permite Gilles Deleuze afirmar que o pensamento produz o novo. Tal empreendimento envolve a constituição do tempo a partir de sínteses passivas que Deleuze, em Diferença e repetição, agencia com as noções de hábito em Hume, de memória pura em Bergson e com o pensamento do eterno retorno em Nietzsche. A primeira síntese do tempo, Habitus ou presente vivo, se refere a contemplações contraentes, constituindo a fundação do tempo. Mnemósina ou passado puro é a segunda síntese que se instaura como fundamento que permite a passagem dos presentes. Mas as repetições do Hábito e da Memória somente chegam ao seu acabamento em uma terceira síntese, única capaz de afetar o absolutamente novo, expressa pela intrigante concepção deleuziana do eterno retorno como repetição do futuro. Tendo a interpretação de Klossowski como aporte, Deleuze entende que há no eterno retorno um aspecto ...
RESUMO Objetivo Avaliar a eficácia da mesa anatômica virtual 3D como recurso complementar ao aprendizado da anatomia hepatobiliar por estudantes de graduação em Medicina. Metodologia Trata-se de estudo randomizado e controlado que comparou a aprendizagem anatômica de estruturas hepatobiliares, apoiada por um modelo real versus por um modelo virtual, ambos tridimensionais (3D), por parte de estudantes de medicina. Avaliou-se também a percepção dos estudantes quanto aos recursos utilizados para o ensino da anatomia. Os alunos foram submetidos a um pré-teste e a duas avaliações após a aplicação das intervenções. Resultados Globalmente, tanto a mesa anatômica virtual 3D quanto o fígado real aumentaram o conhecimento dos estudantes sobre a anatomia hepatobiliar em relação ao conhecimento prévio deles (p = 0,001 e p = 0,01, respectivamente para a segunda e terceira avaliação). Na comparação longitudinal entre o pré-teste e a segunda avaliação (anatomia hepatobiliar e ...
2010-03-01 Resumo em português CONTEXTO: Doentes com doença renal crônica em tratamento hemodialítico apresentam risco aumentado de aquisição do vírus da hepatite C (VHC). Elevadas taxas de prevalência têm sido detectadas em unidades de diálise do mundo inteiro. Estudos recentes têm demonstrado que a infecção pelo VHC interfere de forma negativa na sobrevida dos pacientes em hemodiálise e naqueles submetidos ao transplante renal. OBJETIVOS: Determinar a prevalência e os fatores de risco d (mais) a infecção pelo VHC em pacientes submetidos a hemodiálise. MÉTODOS: Realizou-se estudo transversal entre janeiro e dezembro de 2007. Neste período, 236 pacientes em hemodiálise foram testados pelo ELISA de terceira geração. Os casos positivos foram submetidos a pesquisa qualitativa do HCV-RNA pelo método de PCR. Consideraram-se como portadores de infecção pelo VHC aqueles pacientes com anti-VHC e HCV-RNA positivos. Dosagens mensais de ALT e a média do valor de 12 meses foram ...
Na insuficiencia cardiaca (IC) o comprometimento do fluxo sanguineo muscular na transicao do exercicio leve para o intenso pode reduzir temporariamente a pressao microvascular de O2 e diminuir a oferta de O2 do capilar para a mitocondria. No entanto, os avancos no tratamento medicamentoso da IC (por exemplo, os inibidores da enzima conversora de angiotensina e ƒÀ-bloqueadores de terceira geracao) poderiam ter melhorado a oferta microvascular de O2 a um ponto em que a lentidao da maquinaria metabolica intramuscular passaria a ser o fator limitante da resposta cinetica do consumo de oxigenio ( O2). O objetivo do presente estudo foi investigar a relacao dinamica entre oferta e utilizacao microvascular de O2 na transicao do exercicio leve (sem carga) para o intenso, em portadores de IC com tratamento otimizado e nao treinados, comparado a um grupo controle de individuos saudaveis. Foram incluidos 10 pacientes com IC com tratamento clinico otimizado (fracao de ejecao = 29 } 8%) e 11 controles ...
Bem vindos à SUCO by Susana!. Finalmente consigo dizer (escrever) isto!. Foram 4 meses de planeamento, escolha de desenhos, testes de moldes, costura de samples, pesquisa de criadores de lojas online, cansaço, optimismo, e criação da loja propriamente dita.. Tudo isto culminou com uma sessão fotográfica muito divertida, com os meus filhos como modelos, e finalmente a imensa alegria de conseguir abrir a loja ao público.. Aqui no blogue vou publicar novidades, mostrar projectos novos tanto para a loja como só cá para casa, escrever dicas e truques, e no fundo, mostrar as minhas aventuras na costura. Sim, porque as aventuras continuam, como coser os topos de uma calça de ganga nas pernas erradas, e ter que desfazer tudo para começar de novo. Ou coser e desmanchar 2 vezes o peitilho de um cueiro, até descobrir como coser as cavas dos braços, e só acertar à terceira vez. (por aqui se vê que eu não desisto facilmente...).

Fate had more in store for Miguel, and his timpani. And we all know that fate can be one cruel bitch. And so was Esmerelda. She came into Miguels life one evening after he had performed in Madrid. Dripping with diamonds, smelling of lilacs, with long, black hair that curled into long ropes that swung freely down her back, entwined with strands of pearls. For the first time, ever, Miguel was distracted away from his drum. Seductively, Esmerelda worked her magic on Miguel. The timpani began to look unkempt. Scratches began to appear, and once, in the heat of passion, Esmerelda threw a stiletto at it, denting it. Miguel failed to notice. So entranced by the witch, Esmerelda, Miguel failed to notice that no one wanted him and his timpani anymore. Until Esmerelda didnt want him, or his timpani, anymore. But by then, it was too late. The music had left him. His timpani would play no more. Dejected, Miguel scraped together enough money to go to a place where he hoped he could get a new start. He went ...

Yadier Molina has played the same amount of games as Trout. Yadier has struck out 84 less times, has 7 less RBIs, has 2 more 2Bs, and is batting .009 less that Trout. Yet, Yadier isnt being considered an MVP for his numbers. The catching position plays the most important defensive position of all positions, including CF. Miguel moved positions and played out of position the whole season to benefit his team. This is why I stand by my opinion that Miguel is clearly the MVP of the AL in 2012 ...

The ecoregion is considered a cold-water coral hotspot in the Northeast Atlantic, with more than 164 species (Braga‑Henriques et al., 2013) and 20 different types of coral assemblage reported (Tempera et al., 2013, 2014; Braga‑Henriques et al., 2011b; Braga-Henriques, 2014; de Matos et al., 2014a). Most coral species found in the region are broadly distributed worldwide, with only a few apparently restricted to a single geographic origin. Coral habitats support a rich associated fauna (Braga-Henriques et al., 2011a, 2012a; Carreiro-Silva et al., 2011, 2017; Pham et al., 2015), supplying many vital ecosystem services. Deep-sea sponge aggregations are also common in the region and cover extensive areas, particularly below 500 m (Braga-Henriques et al., 2012b; Braga-Henriques, 2014; Tempera et al., 2013; unpublished data from the Rebikoff-Niggeler Foundations deep-sea video archives; unpublished data from the EU SponGES project ...
