first_imgInvestigation of the seasonal changes in composition of an immature Antarctic fellfield cyanobacterial/microalgal community has demonstrated a repeated periodicity. The community consisted of only 14 species. Early spring growth of filamentous chlorophytes under snow and ice was followed by summer dominance of the community by cyanobacteria, particularly Phormidium autumnale. Limitation of the chlorophyte populations appeared to be a result of either dehydration of the soil or increased irradiance. The population maximum of the cyanobacteria occurred in mid-summer, although there were no obvious reasons for the cessation of growth at this time, and declined rapidly in late summer. Regrowth of the community occurred from very small inocula each spring, most of the biomass having been lost during late summer or during the washout associated with the spring thaw. This regrowth demonstrates the potential for the population to establish an immature fellfield community very rapidly foliowing exposure by glacial retreat or physical disturbance.last_img read more


first_img My favorite thing in my dressing room “This is my grandfather’s flag—I found it in my parents’ basement in San Francisco. It has 48 stars on it!” The best thing to eat on a two-show day “Kale salad! It’s good for energy and doesn’t make me feel tired. The perfect blend of delicious and nutritious to get me through the day.” Lena Hall is venturing where few ladies have gone before: She’s playing disgruntled backup singer Yitzhak, a dude who wants more than anything to be a drag queen, in the gender-bending rock musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch. Oh, and did we mention she’s also the husband of Neil Patrick Harris, who plays transgender rock goddess Hedwig Schmidt? We had to find out what Hall’s life like is like behind the scenes, so Broadway.com sent her on a scavenger hunt, asking her to take photos of a few of her favorite things at the Belasco Theatre. Check out a day in the life of Lena below! My good luck charm “Josh Groban gave this to me. He was duped by a monk in Times Square to donate for peace. It makes me laugh.” My favorite fan gift “Yum yum cookies!!!! My fav is maple bacon!” My favorite co-star “This pic was taken after our first preview. Neil is so much fun to work with and his work ethic is incredible.” The crew member who saves my ass “Me and stage manager Rachel Wolff! During tech, she would always watch out for me and make sure everything was in its right place. She was always there for me with a pen so I could write down my changed prop moves and such.” View Comments The best costume piece I wear “I love my packer [fake penis, censored]. It helps me with the physicality of Yitzhak. I asked for it ;)” My view from the stage door “Here I am, signing autographs for the crowd outside after the show.” My must-have pre-show item “Always with the iced tea! Large, unsweetened, extra ice.” My Yitzhak’s-eye view from the stage “My ‘hole,’ where all my props are. I drink from these bottles during the show (not real booze, obviously) and they save me as far as my voice is concerned.” Related Shows Show Closed This production ended its run on Sept. 13, 2015 A selfie right before I go on stage “Getting myself together before I get bombarded with insults from Miss Hedwig.” Hedwig and the Angry Inch The coolest prop in the show “They got guitar picks and drum sticks specially made for the band!

first_img Crystal Palace and Newcastle have been linked with a January move for Gomis but Monk insists the 29-year-old is not for sale and will get his chance over the busy Christmas period and in the new year when Ivory Coast striker Bony is away at the Africa Cup of Nations. “I have heard the speculation about Bafe but I want him here,” Monk said. “He has been fine, trained well, got on with his job and it is not in my plans to move him on. “He’s been fantastic with me, I speak a lot to him about it and he waits for his time. “He tries to contribute and in January he’ll have a chance with Bony going to the Africa Cup of Nations and maybe in this period coming up with the number of games we have when we have to think about freshness. “He will have his chance and that’s what he’s been waiting for. ” Gomis showed the finishing ability which brought him 62 goals in 172 Lyon appearances in his first Swansea start, scoring the winner in the Capital One Cup tie against Rotherham in August. But he hasn’t started a Premier League game since the goalless draw away to Sunderland at the end of September and Bony has scored seven goals in 10 games in that time. Gomis has started just two Barclays Premier League games since leaving Lyon on a free transfer last summer with a big reputation, scoring only once in the top-flight – the winner in a memorable 2-1 victory over Arsenal last month. The 12-times capped France forward signed a four-year deal at Swansea in June but he has had to play second fiddle to Wilfried Bony, the Premier League’s top scorer in 2014. Swansea striker Bafetimbi Gomis will not be leaving in the January transfer window despite his lack of first-team action, says his manager Garry Monk. Press Association “It’s been difficult for him because he’s not a young kid,” Monk said. “He’s established and played and scored a lot every season with a good pedigree. “And player like that doesn’t want to spend time on the bench, They want to play and I understand that. “I’d loved to have played him more than I have but Bony’s been in such good form and players understand that. “That quality of player will always be linked and other teams will see they haven’t played as much as I or Bafe would have liked, “They will look at him as a possible target but that shows what a good player he is.” last_img read more
