Bukwo District

Bukwo District is a district in the Eastern Region of Uganda. The town of Bukwo is its main political and commercial center and the site of the district headquarters. Bukwo District is bordered by Amudat District to the north, Kenya to the east and south, Kween District to the west and northwest; the town of Nukwo is 83 kilometres, by road, northeast of Mbale, the nearest large city. The coordinates of the district are 01 16N, 34 44E; the district was created on 1 July 2005. Before Bukwo District was part of Kapchorwa District, it was created out of Kongasis county. The district has many well-educated people, but many have left to find greater prosperity in the neighbouring country of Kenya. Many of the district's roads are impassable. There is a widespread lack of telecommunication services throughout the district; the various Ugandan governments have not developed this part of the country, starting with the colonial governments in the early part of the 20th century, through the Obote I, Idi Amin, Obote II, National Resistance Movement regimes.

Many of the inhabitants of Bukwo District live in abject poverty. The district is plagued by persistent insecurity due to cattle raids and cattle rustling by ethnic groups from Karamoja located in northeastern Uganda and the Turkana and Pokot peoples from neighbouring Kenya; these challenges date to the 1960s. Most of the people from the northern part of the district have been internally displaced by cattle rustlers and have since not been resettled back in their original land; some of these people opted to purchase land from areas that appeared secure while others who could not afford to purchase new land continue to exist as squatters on well-wishers' land. In 1991, the national population census estimated the district population at 30,700; the national census in 2002 estimated the population at 49,000, with an annual population growth rate of 4.2 percent. In 2012, the population was estimated at 73,400. Districts of Uganda Bukwo District Gets First Borehole Worth Sh26 Million

Ritsu and ryo scales

The ritsu and ryo scales are anhemitonic pentatonic scales -- five-note scales without semitones -- used in a type of Japanese Buddhist chant called shōmyō. The ritsu scale is built up by intervals of major second, minor third, major second, major second, minor third, while the ryo scale is major second, major second, minor third, major second, minor third. A third scale called Hanryo hanritsu is created by combining the ritsu and ryo scales however there is no agreed way to combine the two; the ritsu scales do not fit into the equal temperament prominent in Western classical music but ritsu is transposable to E and B, Ryo is transposable to D and G, Hanryo hanritsu to A. The Ritsu scale is one of the six scales that provide more consonant harmonic intervals than any other possible scales that can be drawn from the 12 semitones of tempered pitch; the ritsu scale is the voice of the male phoenix, being, the voice that ascends from above and is inhaled breath, emerging from the ki while the ryo scale is the voice of the female phoenix, nothingness, the voice that ascends from below and is exhaled breath, emerging from the breath.

Callistemon 'Splendens'

Callistemon'Splendens' is a grown cultivar of the plant genus Callistemon. It has a compact and rounded habit and grows to about 2 metres high and wide, although it may grow taller. Large, well-displayed "brushes" are produced in late spring, with further flowering sometimes occurring at other times. New growth is pink-tinged and the leaves are elliptic and up to 90 mm long and 20 mm wide; the cultivar, in grown for many years, is of uncertain origin. It was known as Callistemon citrinus var. splendens, first formally described in 1925 in Botanical Magazine. In 1970 it was promoted under the name'Endeavour' to mark the bicentennial of James Cook's voyage to Australia on the Endeavour, it was registered under the name Callistemon'Splendens' with the Australian Cultivar Registration Authority in 1989. This plant has gained the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit; the cultivar is most suited to climates ranging from temperate to sub-tropical. It adapts to most soils, is tolerant of frost and salt spray.

List of Callistemon cultivars


Torquaratoridae is a family of Hemichordata that lives in deep waters. They can grow up to three feet in length and have gelatinous bodies brightly colored. Cilia on their underside is used to glide over the ocean floor at about 3 inches an hour while detritus is sucked into their gut, leaving behind a constant trail of feces; when deciding to move to new feeding locations, they empty their gut and drifts over the bottom, aided by an excreted balloon of mucus, before they let themselves down somewhere else. One species has been shown to care for the offspring by bearing about a dozen embryos surrounded by a thin membrane in shallow depressions on the surface of the mother's pharyngeal region; the proboscis skeleton is reduced to a small medial plate in one genus, while it is absent in the remaining species, the stomochord reduced in adults. Terminstomo arcticus have lost blood sinus and the proboscis skeleton, their large eggs, which measures 2 millimetres across, suggests that there is direct development without larvae.

Their genitals are unusual by being located outside the body. On each side of the worm a flap of the skin runs the entire length of the trunk. Located on the inner surfaces of these flaps, the numerous ovaries and testicles bulges outwards in an epidermal pouch attached to the rest of the body by a slender stalk; the ovaries' eggs are protected by just a single layer of cells. One species, Yoda purpurata, is the first known hermaphroditic hemichordate, it is assumed. Another member of the family, Terminstomo arcticus, don't have a heart and has a stomochord that extends from the posterior end of the proboscis through the entire length of the collar. Only one known species is robust enough to burrow into substrates; the other species have a reduced body musculature and are too gelatinous and fragile to do so. Instead they are living directly on the seafloor; the extra-wide-lipped species shows the most obvious adaptations to the free living lifestyle, are found exclusively on rocks of deep-sea lava formations.

At depths between 1500 and 3700m, these animals are the most numerous along with echinoderms, molluscs and fish.

Review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes retrospectively collected reviews to give a score of 3% based on reviews from 29 film critics, with a rating average of 3.5 out of 10. The site's consensus reads: "Overly formulaic and tonally inconsistent, Getting Even with Dad tries for a sentimental conclusion it doesn't earn and winds up a slapsticky cash grab aimed at fans of Home Alone."

Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the film two out of four stars saying, "It wants to be a caper, a comedy, a romance, a showcase for Macaulay Culkin. That's too much of a stretch."Desson Howe of The Washington Post gave the film a negative review explaining that "after plying the audience with formulaic predictability, Getting Even doesn't have the decency to end quickly. Minutes away from sending the audience home, it chooses to fall asleep on the job." Culkin's performance in the film earned him a Razzie Award nomination for Worst Actor.
