At the end of the afternoon I was coming back from the forest with my field assistant, when we heard a noise some 500 metres away from us. We hurried towards it and followed the loud alarm calls. When I was some 20 metres away from it I saw a group of white-bellied spider monkeys (Ateles belzebuth) vocalising agitatedly and close by was another group of red howler monkeys (Alouatta seniculus), also vocalising loudly. I thought that they must be engaged in an agonistic meeting, possibly competing for some food source or other, but, to my utter surprise, I saw, just above them in an emergent tree, a majestic harpy eagle (Harpia Harpyja) holding an old female howler monkey in its claws that it had just attacked.

The howler was still debating occasionally, but was mostly hanging from the tree trunk. The harpy eagle had one foot on its chest and the other supporting itself in the tree. As soon as the harpy eagle saw us, it tried to fly away with the big howler in its claws, but instead, it released the monkey from its grip.

I then collected the howler, which was still alive, but she died on the way back to the field base. As soon as it died, hundreds of nematode worms came out of its body through the natural cavities (mouth, ears, rectum and vagina) and also through the wounds the harpy eagle had inflicted on it. It was also infested by hundreds of fly eggs and larvae (dipterans, or flies), which had spread all over its fur. Interestingly though, the dipterans eggs were carefully laid halfway along each strand of fur, almost in a calculated synchrony.

This apparent health condition, together with the fact that her teeth were heavily worn out and decayed, only one third intact and blackened with age, with three missing and one broken, makes me assume that this older female may well have been sick, weak and consequently more susceptible to attack.

Considering that assemblages of up to three primate species are fairly common in the study area, as are polyspecific choruses, including for instance, spider monkeys, howler monkeys, and squirrel monkeys (Saimiri sciureus), we think that it makes a lot of sense that harpy eagle predation may be more directed towards senile debilitated individuals. All the others would be well aware of predators even before they could see them. More individuals, and more individuals of different species, with different abilities to evade predators, may jeopardize the efforts of the predator to trap them. Adult howlers, specifically, however, may pose a transport problem to harpy eagles because of their large body size.

SAN JOSE, Calif., July 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — MontaVista® Software, Inc., the leader in embedded Linux®commercialization, today announced Carrier Grade Edition® (CGE) support for the Carrier Grade Linux 5.0 profile for ARM architecture.  This milestone marks the first CGL registered product to support the ARM architecture. The tidal wave of smart phone and tablet usage has created a situation where mobile broadband demand is outpacing infrastructure capability. Carriers are racing to expand capacity while reducing the power required to run the mobile broadband telecommunications infrastructure.  For almost a decade, Telecom OEM and carriers have defined their Linux requirements using the Carrier Grade Linux specification.  MontaVista has bridgecd the gap between next generation silicon on ARM and Telecom Linux requirements.

“To support ARM-based SoC designs for carrier and cloud equipment, we recognize the importance of carrier grade software platforms to be in lock step with those silicon implementations, as this will accelerate time-to-deployment for highly reliable, available and secure next-generation equipment,” said Bob Monkman, manager, Enterprise Networking Segment for ARM. “MontaVista pioneered the Carrier Grade Linux movement, and it continues to be a leading innovator for this software platform that remains the crucial benchmark for network equipment and data centers alike. This milestone is another proof point that the necessary software ecosystem is in place for ARM-based systems to deploy into the global communications network.”

MontaVista’s Carrier Grade Edition is designed for high reliability infrastructure markets. CGE is the standard foundation of a Linux based platform, certified to meet performance requirements, high availability, serviceability, hardening, and real-time response.  The CGE multi-architecture platform allows customers to cross compile across all major architectures knowing they have met all CGL, LSB, and IPv6 requirements.  Only MontaVista provides a Carrier Grade Linux cross-architecture platform that allows telecom & network equipment manufacturers to cross compile from other architectures to ARM for their next-generation devices.

“As the provider of the world’s most widely-deployed Carrier Grade Linux, MontaVista is committed to supporting the ARM ecosystem with certified and high-performance operating systems.” said Patrick MacCartee, Director of Marketing for MontaVista Software. ”

MontaVista is bridging the gap between IT and Telco Linux operations systems by providing leadership in the Linaro Network Group (LNG), where it sits on the steering committee, as well as being part of the Carrier Grade Linux community. Our unique experience enables us to provide the best-in-class platform for ARM in cloud and carrier infrastructure applications.  MontaVista is supporting the ARM architecture for a range of applications in the telecom supply chain.  Work is underway to provide KVM-based virtualization to enable cloud-based solutions for mobile core and data plane on the ARM architecture.

“MontaVista has led the way in providing Carrier Grade Linux (CGL) support since the first Requirements Definition document in 2002,” said Mark Orvek, Linaro VP of Engineering. “We’re pleased to see MontaVista Linux Carrier Grade Edition listed by the Linux Foundation as the first distribution to implement the CGL specification on the ARM platform and we’re very happy to be working together with MontaVista and the other industry-leading members of the Linaro Networking Group to develop the future of Linux on ARM in this space.”

MontaVista is committed to compliance with the major industry standards and maintains its position of being the only Linux distribution in the world to comply with the three key requirements issued by the industry’s major standards bodies: CGL, Linux Standard Base (LSB), and IPv6. MontaVista’s Carrier Grade Edition is also the only embedded Linux to be Oracle-certified. This certification demonstrates MontaVista’s ongoing and continued commitment to CGE interoperability with industry software and hardware, and meets the rigorous demands of current and future multi-core network infrastructures. MontaVista has made available copies of the CGL5 registration documents on its website at http://www.mvista.com/products/cge/cgl/cgl.php.

“We applaud MontaVista’s continued leadership with Carrier Grade Linux for the carrier infrastructure market,” said Amanda McPherson, vice president of marketing and developer services Linux Foundation. “MontaVista’s support of the CGL specification for the ARM architecture will be key to enabling a smooth migration to this important SoC architecture that supports millions of devices worldwide.”

“Carrier grade” is a term for software and hardware products that support public telecommunications and data communications networks. Carrier grade products require extremely high degrees of reliability, scalability, and performance to provide an uninterrupted flow of the enormous volume of high-bandwidth data and voice needed for today’s multimedia communications. MontaVista Linux Carrier Grade Edition is the most widely deployed carrier grade Linux solution in the world, and is used by leading network equipment providers (NEPs) including Alcatel-Lucent, Motorola, NEC, and other leading suppliers.

Training knockout rats and mice is not as easy task but it can become easy if you get the right tricks of training your pet rat. To train your rat, first of all you have to understand its behavior and its likes and dislikes as well. These are some common things that should be learnt before training knockout mice or rats. By knowing about these basics, you can easily plan out the way by which you have to train your pet animals. Having a pet like rat or mice is so easy to handle that one can’t even believe this. You even don’t have to maintain special budget for these pets as their living cost is very low and one can easily afford that cost.

Only you have to do is to just provide them a proper cage in which knockout rats can stay at your home. Proper bedding can be placed in their cage by using a small tray or something like that. Along with this, you have to take care of their food as they don’t like to have similar kind of food on each day even though if that is their favorite one. They want to have variations in their diet so that their interest will remain in every kind of food. Knockout mice are also very easy to handle as they eat less quantity of food as compared to rats due to which their living cost is slightly lower as compared to rats. If you would love to train your pets for party tricks then you should choose mice for this purpose. Mice have slim and flexible body due to which it is easier for them to perform those tricks as compared to rats.

provide Custom knockout rats – Transposagen’s exclusive technologies piggyback and rat spermatogonial stem cells (SSCs) are utilized to generate custom Knockout mice faster, cheaper and with higher quality than possible by using standard pronuclear injection methods.

Sebastian Coe

“We have to go back from two years to four years. The move down to two did a lot of damage to my sport,” Lord Coe told BBC Radio 5 live’s Sportsweek.

“It is for the clean athletes. I don’t care about the cheats we weed out. These people are trashing my sport.”

While the 1500m gold medallist from Moscow 1980 and Los Angeles 1984 does not believe trust in the sport has completely evaporated, Lord Coe is concerned people are losing faith in athletics.

“It is depressing. Trust sits at the heart of this,” said Lord Coe, who is also vice-president of the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF).

“I don’t think trust is gone entirely, but it was a bad day for the sport. The big challenge here is to go on fighting, this is not a fight we can afford to lose.

“It is about trust. If fans can’t trust the athletes and go there knowing what they are watching is questionable, then we will descend to American wrestling where most of the crowd know it is fake and, worryingly, don’t care.”

Lord Coe believes that athletes are currently taking risks by cheating as the two-year ban does not take enough time out of their career to be a deterrent.

But the London 2012 organiser and current British Olympic Association chairman knows that lifetime bans are not possible.

The BOA, before Coe was elected chairman, had a policy of banning any British athletes from competing in Olympic Games for life if they had previously failed a drugs test.

 

However, in April 2012 the governing bodylost its battle with the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) at the Court of Arbitration for Sport (Cas) to keep the policy.

It allowed athletes such as Dwain Chambers, who failed a drugs test in 2003, to compete at London 2012

“If I could bring lifetime bans in I would,” said Lord Coe.

“The legal inhibitor to be able to do that is profound. We are not going to be able to have life bans, they would be challenged and when we have done it we have lost.

“Four years does make people think, it is a big chunk of your career but two years with appeals is often only 18 months. Too many athletes have been prepared to take the risk.”

New Jersey dryer vent cleaning is obviously an essential part of home maintenance and fire safety prevention. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends cleaning dryer vents at least once a year, removing the link that accumulates in the dryer vent pipe. This is because the leading cause of dryer related fires is failure to clean them properly. An unclean dryer vent pipe filled with lint is a serious fire hazard. And manual cleaning of lint catcher is not enough.

Did you know that the lint screen in dryer, even when it is cleaned, only catches about 75% of the lint produced inside the dryer? That means 25% of the lint is working its way into the dryer vent pipe, where it can accumulate over time, causing a serious fire risk by restricting airflow and causing overheating that prevents fast drying action and drastically increases the risk of a fire. The dryer vent fills with lint that sneaks by the dryer’s filter. Lint can block the flow of air, cause excessive heat build-up, and result in a fire. Dryer lint is extremely flammable and has the potential to ignite at any time, making the dryer vent a fire hazard that cannot afford to ignore.

The benefits of New Jersey dryer vent cleaning are the following:
Eliminates fire hazard
Reduces drying time
Saves you money on utility bills
Decreases wear and tear on your dryer

Here are some equipment to be used for dryer vent cleaning:
Steel coil rod with Nylon bristles and a soft tip – Traverse a refrigerator bottom in one swipe. Great for those deep dryer lint chutes. Convenient handle with strap loop for easy storage.
Lint trap brush – Reach way down into the deepest, darkest dryer parts.
Spiral cut Double-wide brush – Designed specifically for lint traps in the door.
Rotating brush with flexible rods – Scours the entire vent wall surface, while traversing the multiple turns that are common in most vent systems. It includes adapters to allow you use the air from your dryer, or a shop vacuum/ blower to completely remove the lint from the vent while rotary brushing. It is basically used for those with vertical-running vents or multi-story applications.
Semi-rigid metal vent – Adaptable to every installation for duct will expand to a distance of 8 feet. It includes specially crimped ends to adapt to every 4″ dryer outlet and wall outlet. Includes 2 steel clamps. Duct can be trimmed with ordinary kitchen shears for a custom fit. Improves drying times and reduces overheating of dryer.

Most vents need cleaning every two to three years. Very short vents attached to full size dryers may never need cleaning. Its just because the better a dryer vent blows, the less lint builds up in it. Short vents blow better than long ones. Full size dryers blow better than smaller stack dryers or older dryers. Vents with a lot of turns and elbows blow worse and build up more lint.
