Gammarus oceanicus Segerstråle, 1947 and Echinogammarus marinus (Leach, 1815) were sampled during the breeding season from Oslofjord in 1984, and their lipid composition examined in relation to reproductive condition. In G. oceanicus, female lipid content increased as the ovary matured. Both the amount of lipid stored and the rate of accumulation were greater in spring than in winter. Spring eggs contained 12.4 μg lipid, of which 63% was triacylglycerol and 27% phospholipid. Both fractions decreased steadily during embryonic development. Winter eggs contained 19.2μg lipid, of which 52% was triacylglycerol and 43% phospholipid. During the early stages of embryonic development the amount of phospholipid decreased sharply, whereas that of triacylglycerol increased, suggesting that some of the fatty acid released from phospholipid was sequestered temporarily as triacylglycerol. When newly spawned, both winter and spring eggs were richer in monoenoic fatty acids than adult amphipods and these acids were the major fuel consumed during development. ω6 fatty acids were utilised more slowly than ω3 acids, and egg carotenoid pigment content remained constant. Female E. marinus increased in lipid content as the ovary matured. Spring eggs contained 14.7 μg lipid when newly spawned and this increased to 16.6 μg during the early stages of development. This increase was entirely triacylglycerol, which declined in later stages; the source of the extra lipid was unclear. Eggs contained very little phospholipid or sterol, and both of these components remained at a steady low level during development. E. marinus eggs were not significantly rich in thonoenoic acids compared with adults, and saturated, monoenoic and polyenoic acids were utilised about equally during development. Both adults and eggs were rich in 20.4ω6, which was utilised at a slower rate than the ω3 polyunsaturated acids during embryonic development; again, egg carotenoid pigment content remained constant. In both species there was a decrease in the size of the egg (and as a result, of the newly hatched juvenile), but an increase in total reproductive output (i.e., the total weight of the egg clutch) per female as the breeding season proceeded. The reproductive output of an individual female is probably related to food availability during the period of ovarian maturation, whereas the size of an individual egg is dictated largely by feeding conditions for the juveniles once they are independent of the female. The different patterns of lipid utilisation during development found in this study emphasize the flexibility of response in the reproductive biology of gammarid amphipods. It is not yet possible, however, to relate the differing patterns in a simple way either to egg size or total female reproductive output. Two outstanding problems are the source of extra triacylglycerol during the early stages of development of E. marinus and the metabolic cost of brooding eggs.

This home for sale at 224 Crescent Road in the Gardens section of Ocean City, boasts five bedrooms and a heated pool with a tiki bar, designed by John Giovanni Caccuitti, known for his upscale homes built with entertainment in mind. By Maddy VitaleThe moment you walk into a home of designer and developer John Giovanni Caccuitti, you are transformed into a paradise he has created for you with endless luxury and entertainment that will capture the attention of children and adults in one of his exclusive masterpieces.One such home is in the heart of the upscale Gardens section of Ocean City listed at $1.59 million. The 2,800-square-foot two-story home boasts five bedrooms and four bathrooms, granite countertops, a fireplace, three large decks, a mix of hardwoods, tile and carpeting, crown molding and tray ceilings. There is even an elevator. In addition to all of the top appliances, central air, gas stove and a fenced yard, there are some extraordinary extras that are some of Caccuitti’s specialties. John Giovanni Caccuitti shows some of highlights in the family room, which include special lighting, high ceilings, a gas fireplace and a theater screen.This is not your ordinary high-end home. It is a coastal estate at 224 Crescent Road. “Our homes are totally different than any other, because the entertainment, including places where children and adults can have fun separately and together, are actually engineered into the home,” Caccuitti said while showing the property. The highlights include a large theater/media room, two high-definition theater screens and televisions in the bathrooms.Perhaps the best part of this property is a heated pool with a stone waterfall and stools to a swim-up tiki bar and a fire pit. Caccuitti went to such great lengths to make sure the pool, the night lighting and the landscaping were perfect to transform a smaller lot into a tropical scene.The heated pool and tiki bar are two major amenities. (Courtesy John Giovanni Caccuitti)He actually designed and installed the pool, before he built the house.“Picture kids having fun at the pool,” he said while seated at the tiki bar. “For people who don’t want to get wet, they could sit at the tiki bar and watch, while they sip cool drinks.”What makes a designer and developer good is someone who doesn’t just build a house, but instead thinks of every last detail of how to accommodate a family.A large entertainment room with a high-definition television offers a great place for family time. (Courtesy John Giovanni Caccuitti)“We go to great lengths to brainstorm on how people and guests can have the most fun out of the home, where different age groups will congregate and what would be the dream layout and best toys and equipment to have there,” Caccuitti explained.There is even a window box in the kitchen so that when you are cooking, you could watch your guests and family members outside and in the pool.One thing about the designer, who splits his time between Ocean City and Cozumel, Mexico, he thinks of all the needed conveniences in a shore community, where parking is at a premium.He designed a four-car garage with doors that open in the front and the back of the house for ease of putting groceries away and provide easy access to the entertainment area and back yard. With the help of longtime family friend Donna Ang, of Fox Real Estate in Ocean City, prospective buyers can make an appointment for a private showing of the home.“John has created a tropical-themed gem at this property,” Ang said.John Giovanni Caccuitti and longtime friend Donna Ang, a realtor with Fox Realty in Ocean City, teamed up to sell the Crescent Road property.She and Caccuitti have been friends for 30 years. She noted that throughout the years it has always been a pleasure working with such a talented designer and developer. “John is creative, meticulous and detailed. He loves what he does and takes the time to create the right atmosphere,” Ang said. “He just doesn’t have an architect put it together. He designs it and doesn’t miss any detail of the house.”Caccuitti is a national recognized award-winning designer and developer, who only recently began building homes for sale in Ocean City. He and his team, which includes his daughter Kellie Meier, are building what he describes as extraordinary enclaves. “We are only beginning to sell these dream vacation homes,” Caccuitti said. The kitchen is designed with only the best appliances and even has a window box to see guests and family out at the pool.He built two homes in Ocean City, including the Crescent Road property. The first property sold immediately. A third property is being built near the beach, also in the Gardens section, and is awaiting permits to start construction.Before venturing into development, Caccuitti focused on offering exclusive rental properties, specifically for vacation getaways in Ocean City, Cozumel, Mexico, Philadelphia, the Pocono Mountains and in West Virginia. The website is www.slopestosands.com.Creating homes with entertainment in mind is a priority for designer and developer John Giovanni Caccuitti.While he still loves giving families the convenience of tailor-made rental properties for their excursions, he wanted to take his talents a step further, he noted. “Until this year, we have never sold any of my creations,” he said. “This is because our villas, estates and ski chalets rent for several times more than similar size rental properties and are excellent investments.”He was very selective when he decided where to build his design masterpieces. Ocean City was the top area on his list.The home has spacious bedrooms, each with unique touches of tray ceilings and crown molding. (Courtesy John Giovanni Caccuitti)“I personally love Ocean City. My parents had a house here, so I grew up coming here every summer and raised my children and now grandchildren here,” he said. “It is truly America’s greatest family resort and a perfect place for our unique entertainment homes.”For a private showing of the home at 224 Crescent Road in Ocean City, call Donna Ang Broker/ Salesperson from Fox Real Estate 609-703-8970.

The old adage that blues artists get better with age proves itself once again. The Godfather of British Blues, John Mayall has released his 65th album in his long and illustrious career. Titled Talk About That, Mayall’s voice sounds as good today as it did in 1966 when he teamed up with a very young Eric Clapton as part of his band, The Bluesbreakers. Never lacking from devoted musicians wanting to play with the master, this time Mayall teams up with James Gang and Eagles guitar legend Joe Walsh for a powerful and relevant blues album that is fresh and vibrant. While only on two tracks, Walsh shows his chops with some heartfelt blues guitar.Listen to the album below, and read on for the full review. How can you not love a musician who clearly loves the blues with a passion unrivaled? Mayall is still touring and bringing it with his ever fluid keyboards, blues harp playing and always provocative lyrics. This album has a funkier edge for sure with a great horn section. The trio of Ron Dzuibla on sax, Mark Pender on trumpet and Nick Lane on trombone add texture and warmth.The title song, “Talk About That,” is a funky kickoff that sets the tone. The second song is in true Mayall style, “It’s Hard Going Up” mixes hot horns with his gruff voice telling how hard it was going up in the business (but twice as hard going down). Next up, “The Devil Must be Laughing,” the first of two songs with Joe Walsh, is a splendid blues masterpiece. It is dark and ominous speaking of dangerous word with intolerance, mass murder and unnecessary wars. Walsh is in lockstep that gives the heat to the devil.The mood lightens considerably with homage to Dr. John, “Gimme That Gumbo.” A tight New Orleans romp with bawdy horns; it’s a toe tapper that makes your yearn for some of that Cajun goodness. His guitarist, Rocky Athas, shows his remarkable skill to great effect.The second song featuring Joe Walsh, “Cards on the Table,” is another gem. It’s got a catchy laconic pace, which is a great vehicle for Walsh to show his acumen on slide. There is an instant familiarity to it… a rare gift that Mayall possesses.“Don’t Deny Me” starts with horns and shifts into familiar Mayall territory. He tells a great story, entreating, “don’t deny me your love!” The music interlude is pure keyboard persuasion. Rocky puts the guitar stamp on it… this is the blues at their core!!John Mayall is a true legend. As important to British blues as B.B. King was to American blues. He is to be listened to and venerated. At 83, he is still going strong. When he tours the US again, don’t miss it – even after 50+ years of touring, Mayall still plays with a smile on his face. He is clearly a man who loves his music.
FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Marketplace:We begin on this Wednesday with some energy news, the subtext of which is market is gonna do what the market wants to do. We are talking coal specifically here, and some new numbers from the U.S. Energy Information Administration showing coal consumption this economy is on track to hit a near 40-year low. That’s despite President Trump’s winning campaign promise to save the American coal industry by rolling back environmental regulations and therefore making it easier for mines and power plants to do business. There are some new rules and updates coming out from the Environmental Protection Administration this week, we are told, to continue on that deregulatory path. But as Marketplace’s Kimberly Adams reports, that may not be enough to change the energy economy’s mind:Coal is still a major source of energy in the United States. But coal consumption is on track to hit a near 40-year low in 2018, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. And economists and industry watchers say that decline is likely to continue, because of competition from cheaper alternatives like natural gas, because new technologies are increasing energy efficiency, and because renewable energy sources like wind and solar are more competitive in the energy marketplace.The National Mining Association declined comment, and the American Coal Council didn’t have anyone available to talk today about the latest energy report. For the industry, there are more challenges than cheap natural gas and regulatory hurdles. New technologies are increasing energy efficiency and making wind and solar more competitive. Seth Feaster is with the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis:Feaster: “The economics in this – at the present time are so powerful that the transformation is happening in this industry regardless of what the policies are coming out of Washington.”More: New U.S. coal consumption figures show industry’s decline Markets continue to prevail over U.S. coal industry

Gabriel Jesus struck late to give Manchester City a 1-0 win at Leicester on Saturday, strengthening their hold on second place behind champions-in-waiting Liverpool despite more woe from the penalty spot.Pep Guardiola’s men have endured a turbulent week after they were banned from European club competitions for two years for breaches of financial fair play rules.But a second-half winner from substitute Jesus after Sergio Aguero had failed to convert a penalty put them 17 points clear of fifth-placed Tottenham and sends them into their midweek match against Real Madrid in good spirits. City looked like they might have to settle for a draw after squandering their fourth penalty in a row in the Premier League, with each being missed by a different player.”We have missed four penalties in a row but maybe we will shoot a penalty when we need it to win something,” Guardiola told the BBC. “The keepers are good too, but the next one we are going to score.”The City boss said his team were in good shape for their Champions League last-16 first-leg tie in Spain.”We are playing the kings of the competition, we will see, we will try to enjoy it and do our game,” he added. City, who still trail leaders Liverpool by 19 points, bossed possession in a lively opening spell at the King Power Stadium but the home side should have taken an early lead when Jamie Vardy was put through.The pacy forward, who has not scored since December after an electric spell, was preparing to celebrate but saw the ball rebound agonisingly off the base of the post to safety.A minute later, former Leicester favourite Riyad Mahrez went close, striking a left-footed shot from outside the box that was palmed away by Kasper Schmeichel.Aguero had the ball in the net on the stroke of half-time but the goal was ruled out for off-side.Both sides maintained their intensity after the break and Schmeichel produced a fine save, diving down to his right to keep out a Kevin De Bruyne shot. Penalty saved The decisive moment appeared to come just after the hour mark when Manchester City were awarded a penalty after a VAR check confirmed that Leicester’s Dennis Praet had handled the ball in the area.Aguero blasted the ball down the middle but Schmeichel kept it out with his legs, moments later denying the Argentine hitman with his left foot.Guardiola replaced Aguero with Jesus with less than a quarter of an hour to go and the change paid quick dividends as the Brazilian stretched to poke the ball past the diving Schmeichel after an assist from Mahrez in the 80th minute.Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers said he was “bitterly disappointed” with the result, which leaves his side seven points adrift of City, and felt his side should have had a penalty of their own when De Bruyne appeared to block a free-kick with his hands in the first half.”We were always a threat in the game,” he told Sky Sports. “Of course they have big quality, but I was so pleased with how we defended.”There’s no magic formula, you’ve just got to work hard. The players gave everything tonight. We’re in a great, great position in the league so it’s just staying positive.”City, who could win their third consecutive League Cup next weekend when they face Aston Villa at Wembley, are appealing their UEFA ban at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.Leicester have won just one out of their past six Premier League matches after a fine start to the season and will be glancing nervously over their shoulders at Chelsea, now just six points adrift after their 2-1 win over Tottenham.Topics :
