“People who work faire as a lifestyle (as opposed to weekenders who work a real job and do local faires on weekends) are a weird, crazy, freewheeling bunch. Most are happy as clams (or, perhaps, as turkey legs) to travel year round working faires and living at the faire in their booth or in the campground. In the past, most had no other home than their camper, van or booth..
For the most extreme fungal xerophiles, metabolic activity and cell division typically halts between 0.700 and 0.640 water activity (approximately 70.0 64.0% relative humidity). Here, we investigate whether glycerol can enhance xerophile germination under acute water activity regimes, using an experimental system which represents the biophysical limit of Earth’s biosphere. Spores of a variety of species including Aspergillus penicillioides, Eurotium halophilicum, Xerochrysium xerophilium (formerly Chrysosporium xerophilum), and Xeromyces bisporus, were produced by cultures growing on media supplemented with glycerol (up to 189 mg glycerol g dry spores 1).
This paper introduces a novel real time algorithm for facial landmark tracking. Compared to detection, tracking has both additional challenges and opportunities. Arguably the most important aspect in this domain is updating a tracker’s models as tracking progresses, also known as incremental (face) tracking.
“The relative scarcity of firm evidence made this a difficult decision,” Commissioner Ehlinger said. “However, given the strong medical focus of Minnesota’s medical cannabis program and the compelling testimony of hundreds of Minnesotans, it became clear that the right and compassionate choice was to add intractable pain to the program’s list of qualifying conditions. This gives new options for clinicians and new hope for suffering patients.”.
The only significant chance of rain this weekend comes early Saturday morning in the southeast quarter of the state. The southern half of the Lower Peninsula could see numerous showers Friday night. The area most likely to get wet will be from Lansing southward.
To begin: Barr has repeatedly shared inflammatory views about Muslims. One of her retweets equated Islam with Nazism, saying both want “world domination” and the “destruction of all Jews,” according to an account last year in the Daily Beast. (Some of the tweets have since been deleted, but screengrabs can be found on several news sites.) Barr has also tweeted about what she calls “Islamic rape pedo culture,” and retweeted memes that gin up fear of Muslims..
