Program leader Edward Gorton tells the LA Sentinel that they are currently working with freshman students from Marshall but the program is open to freshmen from all over Pasadena and the surrounding communities.“We are excited about this opportunity and we feel that by beginning this program with freshman they will have the benefit and we will have the benefit of being a part of their lives for the next 4 years and onward as they seek to achieve in higher education,” Gorton said.Kappa Alpha Psi recently celebrated its 106th anniversary. Since its founding on the campus of Indiana University in 1911, it has been the leading African American fraternity in the United States and has alumni and undergraduate chapters throughout across the world.last_img read more

But “sittin’ up’ is just one of the many customs of the Great Depression era that are brought to life on the stage of the We Piddle Around Theater when the curtain comes up on another season of “Come Home, It’s Suppertime.” Opening night of the 13th year of Alabama’s Official Folklife Play is April 3. MESSENGER PHOTO | JAINE TREADWELLOpening night for the 13th year of Alabama’s Official Folklife Play, “Come Home, It’s Suppertime” is April 3 at the We Piddle Around Theater in downtown Brundidge.Lawrence Bowden, president of the sponsoring Brundidge Historical Society, still scratches his head in amazement.Bowden, a charter member of the cast of “Come Home,” never thought that 13 years from the  “original opening night” he would still be taking the stage at the We Piddle Around Theater.“When we started the play in the spring of 2002, none of us thought past that first year,” Bowden said. “We just wanted to do something to preserve and promote the cultural heritage of our town – of the rural South. We did a lot of thinking before we finally decided to take a chance on a folklife play. We didn’t know if we could do it and, if we could, we didn’t know whether anybody would come.”The idea of preserving a part of the physical heritage of Brundidge came later – and was born of necessity.Bowden said, first, the BHS had to come up with the stories and then round up the cast and musicians to put on the folklife play. Then, they had to have a place to perform.“The City of Brundidge allowed us to use the old city hall building for the play,” Bowden said. “The building had been gutted by fire, but with a lot of support from the city and people in the community, the building was transformed into what is a very unique and appropriate place for a folklife play. And, we were able to preserve a Brundidge landmark, a WPA (We Piddle Around) project of 1940.”Bowden said the success of “Come Home, It’s Suppertime” belongs to the “village”of people who have been a part of the production and to the thousands who have come home, at suppertime.“We thank them all and look forward our 13th year at the We Piddle Around Theater,” he said.For available dates for the spring production of “Come Home, It’s Suppertime” the first two weeks of April, call 334-685-5524,  334-372-1001 or 735-3125.Tickets are $25 and include the pre-show, a full, country supper and dessert and the award-winning, two-act folklife play.

The response of two ecologically important Antarctic invertebrates (Sterechinus neumayeri and Parborlasia corrugatus) to reduced seawater pH: Effects on fertilsation and embryonic development

first_imgOcean acidification, or the lowering of seawater pH, is caused by sequestration of atmospheric CO2 into the oceans. This study investigated the effects of present-day pH 8.0, predicted ocean surface pH for the years 2100 and 2300 (pH 7.7 and pH 7.3, respectively) and an extreme pH (pH 7.0) on fertilisation and embryogenesis in the Antarctic nemertean worm Parborlasia corrugatus and sea urchin Sterechinus neumayeri. Fertilisation success was not affected by pH in P. corrugatus across a range of sperm concentrations. Fertilisation success in S. neumayeri declined significantly in pH 7.0 and 7.3 seawater, but only at a low sperm concentration. Seawater pH had no effect on the rate of egg cleavage in S. neumayeri, or the proportion of abnormal embryos 1-day post-fertilisation. P. corrugatus embryogenesis was also relatively robust to pH changes, with a significant effect detected only when the seawater pH was decreased to 7.0. While fertilisation and early cell division were relatively robust, later development through to the gastrula was sensitive to pH. In S. neumayeri, an effect of pH on development was evident by the gastrula stage, while there were significantly more abnormal P. corrugatus embryos in pH 7.0 up to the blastula stage, and in pH 7.0 and pH 7.3 at the coeloblastula stage. Our results are similar to the observations on other marine invertebrate species where fertilisation and early embryonic development are generally robust to lowered seawater pH, while the older coeloblastula and gastrula stages are more responsive. We also found no evidence to suggest that Antarctic species are more adversely affected by lower seawater pH compared with the findings for non-Antarctic counterparts. We conclude that in the two species we examined, near-future decreases in pH (decreases of a parts per thousand 0.3-0.5 pH units) may not have a significant effect on fertilisation and early embryogenesis, while predicted longer term decreases (decreases of a parts per thousand 0.7-0.77 pH units) could reduce fertilisation success in S. neumayeri if sperm concentrations are low and may increase abnormalities in P. corrugatus during later embryogenesis.last_img read more
