The southern island group of Mindanao in the Philippines is divided into six administrative regions. Each region is subdivided into provinces. Zamboanga Peninsula Western Mindanao, is located in the landform of the same name, it consists of Zamboanga City, Isabela City and the provinces of Zamboanga del Norte, Zamboanga del Sur, Zamboanga Sibugay. Isabela City is a part of Basilan; the region's administrative center is Pagadian City and the whole region used to be a single province named Zamboanga. Zamboanga City is the center of commercial and economy in the region. Northern Mindanao consists of the provinces of Bukidnon, Lanao del Norte, Misamis Occidental, Misamis Oriental, the cities of Cagayan de Oro and Iligan; the province of Camiguin is a separate island just of the northern coast of mainland Mindanao. The administrative regional center is Cagayan de Oro City. Davao Region Southern Mindanao, is located in the southeastern portion of Mindanao; the region is divided into the provinces of Davao Oriental, Davao del Norte, Davao Occidental, Davao del Sur, Davao de Oro.
The region encloses the Davao Gulf to the south and includes the island of Samal of Davao del Norte in the gulf, the Sarangani Islands of Davao Occidental further to the west. The region's administrative center is Davao City. Soccsksargen Central Mindanao, is located in the south-central portion of the island, it consists of the provinces of Cotabato, South Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat. The names of the provinces together with the urbanized General Santos City spell the name of the region, an acronym. Cotabato City, surrounded by, but is not a part of Maguindanao province, was the region's former administrative center. Koronadal City, in South Cotabato, is the new administrative center of the newly formed region. General Santos City is the center of commercial and economy in the region. Caraga is located in the northeastern part of Mindanao, it consists of Butuan City and the provinces of Agusan del Norte, Agusan del Sur, Surigao del Norte, Surigao del Sur and Dinagat Islands. The administrative center is Butuan City.
The region covers the outlying islands of Surigao del Norte such as Siargao Island and Bucas Grande Island and the island of Dinagat of the Dinagat Islands province. The Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao is a special region which covers the territories predominantly populated by Muslims. Bangsamoro has its own government unlike all the other regions in the country, it consists of the whole of the Sulu Archipelago and two provinces in the mainland. The provinces located in the Sulu Archipelago are Basilan and Tawi-Tawi. Basilan and Tawitawi Island are themselves the main islands of their respective provinces, while the main island of Sulu is Jolo Island; the mainland Mindanao provinces are Maguindanao. Cotabato City is the region's administrative center
Kingdom Assembly of Iran Soldiers of the Kingdom Assembly of Iran, Iran Monarchy Committee, or Tondar, is a militant Iranian exile royalist group based in Los Angeles, United States which seeks to overthrow the Islamic Republic and restore the former Iranian monarchy. The group is banned in the Islamic Republic of Iran. Tondar, a name which means'thunder' in Persian, is not on the US terrorist organization list. Although it has been called "a little-known exile group," the Assembly has appeared in several news stories in recent years; the group was founded and was headed by Frood Fouladvand, missing since January 2007. The Jamestown Foundation reported that the organization took responsibility for the 2008 Shiraz explosion at the Hosseynieh Seyed al-Shohada Mosque where 12 people were killed and 202 injured. Mohammad-Reza Ali-Zamani and Arash Rahmanipour, alleged by the government to be members of the assembly, were arrested and tried for the bombing by the Judiciary of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
In January 2010 they were attempting to overthrow the Islamic regime. An Assembly spokesperson has denied that Ali Zamani had played any role in the post-election protests, stating that he had worked with the organization, but his job was "simply to pass on news for our radio station and to make broadcast packages". In 2005, 56 Iranians staging a sit-in against the Iranian Islamic government were arrested at the Brussels airport for refusing to leave a Lufthansa plane. At least one protester, Armin Atshgar, identified himself as a member of the group and told the press that "We want the European Union to remove the Islamic leaders from Iran." The group was reportedly active at the annual Nowruz Persian parade in New York City. In 2010, Iran accused the organization of planning terror attacks within its territory; the group runs pro-Iranian opposition radio and television stations and has called for the overthrowing of the Iranian government. The group members have denied that the group is a terrorist organization and denied involvement with the attacks in Iran.
Iran analysts said Iran may be pointing the finger at Tondar because it prefers to "blame the internal dissent and tumult on outside forces". On January, 2010, Iran summoned the Swiss ambassador to Iran, representing the interests of United States in Iran, demanding the extradition of individuals associated with the group, whom Iran believes are behind the assassination of Masoud Alimohammadi, a nuclear physics professor in Tehran, killed in a bomb blast.

Rob "Bullet" Barber is an English professional motorcycle racer, has been described as an "IT consultant." He won the only running of the TTXGP in 2009, the forerunner to the TT Zero. In the TT Zero he has multiple podium finishes, including a second place in 2010 Isle of Man TT and third at the 2013 Isle of Man TT and 2014 Isle of Man TT. Together with his father Phil, he runs the PRB Racing team. On 21 November 2019, on an episode of the BBC Television programme Question Time, during the run-up to the 2019 United Kingdom general election, accompanied by his mother, he claimed that, although his annual income was over £80,000, this placed him in the lower 50% of United Kingdom earners and aggressively called Labour parliamentary candidate Richard Burgon "a liar" for stating otherwise. Jolyon Maugham, a barrister specialising in tax law, has confirmed that an income of £80,000+ per year would in fact place Barber in the top three percent of UK earners. PBR Racing
Ilex cassine is a holly native to the southeastern coast of North America, in the United States from Virginia to southeast Texas, in Mexico in Veracruz, in the Caribbean on the Bahamas and Puerto Rico. It is known as dahoon holly or cassena, the latter derived from the Timucua name for I. vomitoria. It is a large small tree growing to 10 -- 13 m tall; the leaves are evergreen, 6–15 cm long and 2–4 cm broad, glossy dark green, entire or with a few small spines near the apex of the leaf. The flowers are white, with a four-lobed corolla; the fruit is 5 -- 6 mm in diameter, containing four seeds. As with other hollies, it is dioecious with separate male and female plants. Only the females have berries, a male pollenizer must be within range for bees to pollinate them. There are three varieties: Ilex cassine var. cassine Ilex cassine var. angustifolia Aiton. Ilex cassine var. mexicana Loes. Ilex cassine is grown in warmer climates as an ornamental plant for the attractive bright red berries set against the glossy green leaves.
It is known to grow to 30 feet tall. Its original range was close to the coast. Media related to Ilex cassine at Wikimedia Commons Data related to Ilex cassine at Wikispecies Trees and Woody Vines of North Carolina: Dahoon "Yapon". New International Encyclopedia. 1905
Apetala 2 is a gene and a member of a large family of transcription factors, the AP2/EREBP family. In Arabidopsis thaliana AP2 plays a role in the ABC model of flower development, it was thought that this family of proteins was plant-specific. In the A. thaliana transcription factor RAV1 the N-terminal AP2 domain binds 5'-CAACA-3' sequence, while the C-terminal conserved B3 domain binds 5'-CACCTG-3' sequence. Through recent studies, Apetala 2 is found to have a major role in hormone regulation, specific in flowers and plants, such as the AGAMOUS; the study that determined this, done by Ogawa, was created to clarify the relationship between Apetala 2 and AtEBP in gene expression. The results showed that over-expression of AtEBP caused upregulation of AP2 expression in leaves which suggested that the N-terminal region is not required to produce AP2-like phenotypes. AP2 makes up another compound called ANT, composed of two AP2 domains homologous with the DNA binding domain of ethylene response element binding proteins.
Another study by Maes, T. titled Petunia Ap2-like genes and their role in flower and seed development, discovered three AP2-like proteins from petunia and by studying their expression patterns in situ hybridization: PhAP2A, PhAP2B, PhAP2C. PhAP2A was found to have similar functions of AP2 in A. thaliana and has an exact gene sequence. PhAP2B and PhAP2C encode for AP2-like proteins that belong to a different subgroup of the AP2 family of transcription factors and exhibit different expression patterns during flower development compared to PhAP2A. Apetala 2 mutations cause changes in the ratio of hexose to sucrose during seed development, opening the possibility that AP2 may control seed mass through its effects on sugar metabolism; as a protein, it regulates the amount of sugars in the system and is involved in transportation and signaling. Another study showed that analyzed the functionality of DBF1 in abiotic stress responses and found that Arabidopsis plants over-expressing DBF1 were more tolerant to osmotic stress than control plants.
DBF1 is the binding factor, found in the helping Apetala 2 carry out transcription factors. DNA is subject to mutations, which can cause a complete shift in function of the protein due to the malformed protein, causing diseases in some cases. In an AP2 study for instance, an ERF/AP2-type transcription factor was isolated by differential-display reverse transcription-PCR, which induced a hypersensitive response in the leaves; the Arabidopsis CBF gene family is composed of three genes encoding AP2domain-containing proteins, which are all regulated by low temperature to be able to carry out gene expression, but not by abscisic acid or dehydration.
