Chick 65 December 1973 [UPD]



Finally, after about two months, the females return from the sea, bringing food they regurgitate, or bring up, to feed the now hatched chicks. The males eagerly leave for their own fishing session at sea, and the mothers take over care of the chicks for a while.




Chick 65 December 1973



As the young penguins grow, adults leave them in groups of chicks called crèches while they leave to fish. There is a reason for the timing of emperor penguins' hatching. By December, when the Antarctic weather has warmed somewhat, the ice the penguins occupy begins to break up, bringing open waters closer to the nesting sites. Now the chicks are old enough to take to the seas and fish for their own food.


The summer of 1973, only a few weeks before I turned 13, my family moved to a small town in eastern Oregon. We lived a couple blocks from the park and swimming pool where my first weekend in town I saw Sam at a swim meet. If he were here today, he wo


"Eventually, we're gonna have to top even ourselves to stay in the competition," Cooper says, looking to the future. "The time will come when some chick'll have to get raped onstage, or somebody will have to be really killed to 'get' the audience. Sex and violence are the only things left that turn kids on. That's what they want, that's what they'll pay to see."


A sensitive method for assaying aggregation of dissociated cells has been developed which allows the determination of the mean number of cells per aggregate of a cell population. We have demonstrated that exposure of dissociated 6- or 7-day chick embryo neural retinal cells to trypsin in calcium-free solution renders them unable to aggregate for a half hour in stirred cell suspensions. Aggregation was noticeable first at 30 to 40 minutes and, progressed to the formation of massive compact aggregates. Because the half-hour aggregation lag occurred both in the absence of serum and in medium reclaimed from aggregated preparations, the possibilities were excluded that it was due either to an inhibitor of aggregation in the serum, or was the time required for release into the medium of soluble aggregation-promoting materials emanating from the cells themselves. Cells dissociated by divalent cation withdrawal (Ca++, Mg++-free saline with EDTA) aggregated without a lag. The trypsin-induced lag does not appear to be the result of trypsin adsorbed to the, surfaces of dissociated cells, as the lag is not abolished by addition of trypsin inhibitors to the aggregation medium. Microelectrophoresis of dissociated cells did not reveal changes in surface charge density during recovery from trypsinization. A variety of proteins and calcium ion, if present during trypsinization, protect the cells against the trypsin-induced aggregation lag. If the temperature was reduced from 37 to 6C, aggregation of fully adhesive cell populations came to a complete halt within 2 to 3 minutes. Aggregation resumed with a 5 to 10 minute delay when the temperature was returned to 37C. The rapidity of onset and reversal of inhibition of aggregation by low temperature treatment militates against the hypothesis that the low-temperature inhibition of aggregation acts by suppressing the synthesis of cell surface components necessary for adhesion. The abolition of the aggregation lag in trypsinized cells was also shown to be temperature-dependent; a 20-minute cold, pulse administered in the middle of the lag period extended the length of the lag by exactly 20 minutes.


to chuck pollock i know of only one underground bunker at long binh it had a basketball court and a latrine painted white which we called the white house is that the one you were talking about.i was statined with the 535th sig co in 1972 to 1973


Hello. The reason I am reaching out to you is because I am looking for my father. My name is Kim Nguyen and I was born in Vietnam to a Vietnamese mother and American father. All I know about my father was that he was a pilot during the war. I was born there in 1973. My mother refused to give me any information on my father, not even a name. I am reaching out to try and find someone that may be able to help me find him. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. My father stationed in Long Bình Vietnam. My mother worked at long binh hospital. My dad probably return home to USA 1972. If anyone knows please share
