The Senegalese women's national basketball team had won a medal at every FIBA Africa Championship for Women except for the initial one in 1966. This includes 10 gold medals between 1974 and 2000 (9 in 12 tournaments), though Senegal has only managed to earn 1 bronze and 2 silver medals in the 3 tournaments hence. The team has taken part in one Summer Olympics in 2000, where they finished in last place (12th). They finished 16th place at the 2010 FIBA World Championship for Women.Senegal played host to the FIBA Africa Championship for Women 2007 qualifying tournament for the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. The squad swept the first round with a 50 record and beat the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Mozambique before losing to Mali, despite the fact that Senegal had beaten Mali 4837 just 4 days previous. Senegal did qualify for the FIBA World Olympic Qualifying Tournament for Women 2008 to be Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap held in July 2008, in which 12 teams from wholesale jerseys across the globe will compete for 5 spots in the Olympics. Angola also qualified through the FIBA Africa tournament as the third place finisher.

What the toughest question your kid can ask? For me it was is death and what happens when we die? This question was worse than the are babies made? question. Especially since I had my own fear of dying which I am happy to say has waned tremendously.
I find that a big issue that comes up for us when we talk to our kids about death is that no one truly knows what happens when we die. We may hear from people who have allegedly crossed over and come back, people who speak with angels, and folks who channel nonphysical energy, but the bottom line is, is that none of us will know what death is until we die. Death is the biggest human unknown that will never be known.
For me, that the killer (pun intended): that we really don have an answer for our kids that can give them solace and peace if they only find peace once they have an exact definition of the experience of death. I realized that the best I can do to support my kids in their daily journey of coming to terms with death, is to help www.cheaperlouboutinreplica.com them to accept the unknown and embrace it as an adventure. This is especially true of life. If my kids can allow the unknown in life to rock their world, then in death they can do the same.
On my parenting journey, the best approach I learned to assist my kids in their kid journey of processing the fear of dying, is for me to get very clear on my own resistance and response to the www.cheaperlouboutinshoesreplica.com unknown aspect of dying. I've learned that if I approach every day with excitement about experiencing the unknown in the here and now, the more I can role model letting go of my fear of dying. With this attitude, dying is just another unknown in the game of life. I've discovered that the less you afraid of death, the greater chance you have of your kids being less afraid of death.
Here are 5 www.amichaelkorsoutlet.com other ways I found useful in discussing death with my kids:
1 FIRST AND FOREMOST AND VERY IMPORTANT! I did not discuss this issue at bedtime even if they brought it up. I would cheerfully say "we can definitely talk about this tomorrow!" and make sure to www.cheapestchristianlouboutinoutlet.com bring it up the next day during daylight hours. The dark can exacerbate a child fear, especially since they will be left alone with their thoughts once you kiss them good night.
2 Find some good kids books about the subject and read them DURING www.cheaperchristianlouboutinreplica.com THE DAY with your children.
3 Make a ritual to bchristianlouboutinoutlet.com honor death in your family. Whether it a family pet or the death of a friend or a loved one, support a time when people can get together and celebrate the pet or person who has transitioned. Demonstrate celebration even in the midst of grief. Both can go hand in hand with great grace.
4 Talk honestly to your kids about your own take on death. When my son asks me about whether or not I afraid to die (as he's done so over the last many years as he enters teenagehood), I honestly share with him that yes, sometimes I do have a fear of dying. I share with him that as I get older it gets less and less as I get more and more educated about my connection to the all that is and cheaperchristianlouboutinshoesreplica.com my comfort level with the unknown.
5 Remind your children that a fear of dying can many times be a great impetus for people to live life to the fullest. When we know that something is going to that there is a finite time to this physical experience, it encourages us to make the most out cheap ugg boots uk of every single day! It all about moving through the fear and into the love for each moment and each breath we take here on planet earth.

normal Ryan Mathews Super Bowl Jersey weight for 10 week
We adopted a pair of kittens at 8 weeks, now 10 weeks old, two boys, littermates. One was always bigger than the other, and I'm not 100% sure it's just because one was the runt. Is he just scrawny, or sick?
They have had the first round of shots and are not due for round two yet. They have had a Strongid t wormer. Both are active and seem happy. Small one is leggy and 1.6 kilos and big one is a stout 1.8 kilos. Both seem to have fairly normal drinking, eating and pooping habits, although the small one has occasional loose stool, nothing persistent. Both are gaining weight at about the same pace. Does the little guy need to go back to the vet for further examination to rule out any parasites not covered in the basic vaccination routine? If he continues to gain weight, is he fine?I don't know what a "normal" weight for kittens is at that age, but I have often found that kittens look and feel scrawny all the time, regardless of how healthy they are. If the vet thought they looked okay, I wouldn't worry about it. Can't tell a whole lot from the photos, but from what I see they look completely normal (and extra adorable). They're cuties!
I had a very similar issue with a kitten I adopted about six months ago. A friend of mine adopted another from the same litter. They were roughly the same size at six weeks, but despite feeding them identically, her kitten grew (and continues to grow) much, much faster than mine. I was a little paranoid about it, even after she was looked over by the vet and given the all clear. It wasn't until she hit the four/five month mark or so that she started looking and feeling like a normal cat. She's had her second round of shots and despite being about a third smaller than her brother, I'm told she's doing fine. There's a lot of variation in cat sizes, even among cats from the same litter. Of course it's best to take your vet's advice, but it sounds like your kitten is just on the small size, not unhealthy.

How is his activity level? If he's active and acting like a typical crazy kitten, I wouldn't worry about it. Cats from the same litter can vary in size. If he seems lethargic, then I would think something was wrong.

I have two cats from the same litter; they started out roughly the same size, but one quickly became about 1.5 times the size of the other. Now that they're adults, it's still true.
Remember that kittens from the same litter can have different fathers.

both look just fine no secondary eyelid action, no discharge, no belly dents, clean noses everything a kitten should be.
one small thing that you could do is give a round of Bene Bac. whatever might be causing the loose stool, it's a sure bet that upping the helpful flora in their guts will make for an even better kittenhood. sometimes just the act of weaning, re homing, or other starting point stressors can unsettle their wee intestinal tracts.

I've had kittens that were different sized from the same litter, also short haired and long haired from the same litter. We have a big grey and white female cat that was bigger and more aggressive than her siblings. We thought she was male as a small kitten and my son named her Attila. Once we found out he was a she, she became Tilla. She is still the biggest cat, much bigger than her two sisters my brother has and the one sister we have here. And she wasn't even the runt (the runt passed away, unfortunately, and was even smaller.). But now she's within half a pound of both her sister and her mom. (I've had the kittens since they were born, the the mom about a week before that.) I don't think the smaller kitten caught up until she was at least 5 6 months old, and they're a year now.
As long as she's active, eating and looks healthy I wouldn't worry in the slightest. Kittens are just like kids they come in all different sizes, and grow at their own pace.

My boy was a bit more than half the size of his biggest brother at eight weeks old, now he's a solid healthy adult male cat, weighing 4.7 kg at 16 months old (although I kind of wonder how big his brother got!). Your guys are gaining weight at the same rate, that's the an important clue that you're all doing fine not growing is a problem, being different sizes, eh not so much. You could certainly bring it up at your next vet visit, which should be reasonably soon anyway as far as I recall (those shots come fairly frequently), and you should keep up with the worming schedule and on top of any fleas if relevant. But assuming nothing else changes in the meantime I don't see why you should be worrying.
The little guy may eventually catch up or may always be little, or you may end up like I did with a previous kitten and find out he's small because, ahem, he's a she.

What bookdragoness said, they potentially have different fathers and were probably conceived at slightly different times. Either way, born early or just from a smaller line, if he's running around he'll be fine. Just make sure the big one doesn't push him around too much. (Fwiw, our little skinny kitten never really did catch up, and they're five!, but that's more because the big one has become boundlessly fat despite all efforts.)

Behaviour genes unearthed
Even as home experiments go, Hopi Hoekstra's one was peculiar: she built a giant plywood box in her garage in San Diego, California, filled it with more than a tonne of soil and then let a pet mouse dig away.
"This thing was bursting at its seams and held together with duct tape," says the evolutionary biologist, now at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. "But it worked." It allowed her to study the genetics of burrowing behaviour in a controlled setting. Armed with plastic casts of the burrows and state of the art sequencing, Hoekstra's team discovered clusters of genes that partly explain why the oldfield mouse (Peromyscus polionotus) builds elaborate two tunnel burrows, whereas its close relative, the deer mouse (Peromyscus maniculatus), goes for a simple hole in the ground1.
The findings highlight an underappreciated benefit of a genomics revolution that is moving at breakneck speed. Thanks to cheap and quick DNA sequencing, scientists interested in the genetics of behaviour need not limit themselves to a handful of favourite lab organisms. Instead, they can probe the genetic underpinnings of behaviours observed in the wild, and glean insights into how they evolved.

Oldfield mice are native to the southeastern United States, where they burrow in soils ranging from sandy beaches to silt rich clays. Wherever they dig, their holes look much the same, with a long entrance tunnel and a second tunnel that stops short of the surface and allows them to escape predators. Such invariability hints that the trait is encoded in DNA, says Hoekstra.
To find out where, she and her Harvard colleagues Jesse Weber and Brant Peterson cross bred oldfield mice with deer mice, whose burrows are shallow and lack escape routes. The offspring continued to build complex tunnels, suggesting that the oldfield burrowing genes were dominant (see 'The genetics of burrowing').
A second round of breeding between the first generation crosses www.footballchargersshop.com/17+Philip+Rivers+Jersey+Cheap.html and deer mice revealed that genes linked to burrow length were distinct from those influencing the escape tunnel. Some offspring produced short tunnels with escape routes, whereas others produced long tunnels without them. DNA analysis revealed that three genetic regions are responsible for much of the variation in tunnel length, and a fourth affects escape tunnel digging.
"This paper is awesome," says Cornelia Bargmann, a neurogeneticist at Rockefeller University in New York, noting that it combines cutting edge molecular genetics tools with established cross breeding techniques to study behaviours that have been observed for more than a century in the wild. In the past, geneticists interested in unravelling behaviour had to focus on lab animals for which mutant and transgenic strains and genetic data were available, she says. "But there were always questions we knew would be more interesting in wild animals." Bargmann and her team studied various wild strains of Caenorhabditis elegans flatworms to identify genes and brain circuits involved in seeking out new sources of food2.
Cheap genome sequencing is the foundation of this new behavioural genetics. In a paper published on Nature's website this week3, a team led by Laurent Keller at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, sequenced hundreds of fire ants (Solenopsis invicta) and identified a region that explains why some colonies have only one queen whereas others tolerate more. The region contains hundreds of genes, and Keller thinks that vast behavioural differences among other insects might be explained by such 'social chromosomes'.
These studies offer clues to the evolution of behaviours seen in the wild, says Catherine Peichel, an evolutionary geneticist at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington. In unpublished work, Peichel and her postdoc Anna Greenwood have discovered a gene that explains differences in schooling behaviour in stickleback fish. The marine variety swims in tight schools, whereas its freshwater cousin swims solo. Such behaviours were probably selected for by different environments predator filled seas with few hiding places versus vegetation filled streams. And Hoekstra says her findings suggest that complex burrowing in mice evolved piecemeal, by combining the genetic modules responsible for simpler digging Philip Rivers Jersey Cheap behaviours.
Hoekstra's team has already found that the key regions for burrowing include genes involved in addictive behaviour. "When you watch these mice, you can't help but think they look like they're addicted to burrowing," Hoekstra says. "You drop one of these oldfield mice in one of our burrowing boxes and they immediately start digging."
The ultimate proof of any gene's role will be to engineer deer mice to build complex burrows by inserting oldfield mice genes, says Hoekstra. Those experiments would have been unthinkable a few years ago, when genome engineering was possible in only a handful of mammals, but this is now conceivable, says Bargmann (see Nature 455, 160 164; 2008).

As the Sumerians recorded i n our history of how the Gods\being from above created humans, perhaps they enhance traits they found most useful for them; since we were design to serve the GODS. We humans lost our fur and so our outer appearance was less ugly to the Gods and we could communicate better, to better do what we are told. In these upgrades we might of lost some memory abilities and the Gods decided to help us by teaching us written language, math, calendars and other useful tools; all to better serve them.

Very interesting! But I don understand why a mutation with a neutral effect would rapidly spread through a population. Was it originally spread as the variety that gave flies an edge processing lathosterol, or did it spread because of a founder effect/genetic drift process?
On a related matter, do we know how many mutations it took for the common ancestor of primates to loose its ability to make vitamin C? Was there any potential advantage to this loss of function, or was it just neutral because our ancestors at enough fruit to not need the gene? Again, I wonder why this broken gene spread unless it was in a small founder population.
