Serra antwren

The serra antwren is a species of small insectivorous bird in the family Thamnophilidae. It is endemic to the states of Rio de Janeiro, Espírito Santo and Minas Gerais in southeastern Brazil; the International Union for Conservation of Nature has assessed this bird's conservation status as being of "least concern." There are three subspecies: F. s. serrana – east Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo F. s. interposita Gonzaga & Pacheco, 1990 – southeast Minas Gerais and northwest Rio de Janeiro F. s. littoralis Gonzaga & Pacheco, 1990 – coastal Rio de Janeiro The restinga antwren has sometimes been treated as a separate species. Antwrens in the genus Formicivora have comparatively long tails, the males are unusual in having underparts that are darker than the upperparts; the serra antwren weighs about 12 g. In the northern part of the range, the male bird resembles the black-bellied antwren, but the crown and upper parts are a richer, more chestnut colour and the edgings to the tertial feathers are rufous rather than white.

It shows less white on the flanks. In the southern part of the range, the crown and upper parts are dark brown, with an indistinct superciliary streak and less white on the wing coverts; the females of both races are similar to the black-bellied female but have blacker cheeks and buff underparts. The song is a swiftly uttered series of up to twenty "cha" notes; this antwren is endemic to inland parts of southeastern Brazil, where its range includes the states of Minas Gerais, adjacent parts of Rio de Janeiro and Espírito Santo. Its range was extended northwards in 2011 during an ornithological survey, by it being recorded at two sites some 200 km further north than its previous known range; the precise distribution of many bird species in this area is poorly known and whether these birds were a separate population or whether they were part of a continuous distribution wherever suitable habitat existed is unclear. Typical habitat for this species is scrub and cleared land where natural vegetation is regenerating, at altitudes of up to about 1,300 m.

These antwrens forage in pairs, hopping purposefully and gleaning among the foliage in thick shrubby vegetation. Like other antwrens, the diet consists of arthropods; the population is thought to be in slow decline because of habitat loss but no specific threats have been recognised, the International Union for Conservation of Nature has assessed its conservation status as being of "least concern"

Hans Suess

Hans Eduard Suess was an Austrian born American physical chemist and nuclear physicist. He was a grandson of the Austrian geologist Eduard Suess. Suess earned his Ph. D. in chemistry from the University of Vienna in 1935 under the supervision of Philipp Gross. During World War II, he was part of a team of German scientists studying nuclear power and was advisor to the production of heavy water in a Norwegian plant. After the war, he collaborated on the shell model of the atomic nucleus with future Nobel Prize winner Hans Jensen. In 1950, Suess emigrated to the United States, he did research in the field of cosmochemistry, investigating the abundance of certain elements in meteorites with Harold Urey at the University of Chicago. In 1955, Suess was recruited for the faculty of Scripps Institution of Oceanography, in 1958 he became one of the four founding faculty members of the University of California, San Diego, he remained at UCSD as Professor as Emeritus Professor thereafter. He established a laboratory at UCSD for carbon-14 determinations, where he trained students including Ellen R.

M. Druffel, now the Fred Kavli Professor of Earth System Science at University of California, Irvine. Suess's most recent research was focused on the distribution of carbon-14 and tritium in the oceans and atmosphere. On basis of radiocarbon analyses of annual growth-rings of trees he contributed to the calibration of the radiocarbon dating scale, the study of the magnitude of the dilution of atmospheric radiocarbon by carbon dioxide from fossil fuels burned since the industrial revolution; this dilution is known as the Suess effect. The mineral suessite, a Fe, Ni-silicide in Enstatit-Chondrites, is named after him. On September 20, 1993, Suess died in a La Jolla retirement home. Suess was confused—by the US Postal Service among others—with a contemporary, the famed children's writer Dr. Seuss, when both men resided in La Jolla, California; the two names have been posthumously linked as well: both men's personal papers are housed in the Geisel Library at the University of California, San Diego.

Jomar Brun, a former technical manager of the heavy water works at Rjukan in Norway stated that he had been told by Hans Suess, the German atomic expert employed there, that production could not attain the dimensions important for war production in much less than five years." Jomar Brun fled to Sweden after the occupation by German troops in 1940.

Gary Crowley

Gary Crowley is an English broadcaster, TV presenter and DJ. While still at school in the late 1970s Gary Crowley founded the new wave fanzine "The Modern World" interviewing many of the most significant bands of the day including The Sex Pistols, The Clash and The Jam.

Gustav Mezey

Gustav Mezey was an Austrian artist. In the early 1920s Hungarian-born Mezey embarked upon an artistic career that would span more than four decades, his outstanding talent and pioneering spirit made him one of Europe's most recognised commercial artists of his time. Producing advertisements for several well-known companies in Budapest, Trieste and Vienna, he soon specialised in large outdoor poster designs for the newly emerging film industry. From the early 1930s to the late 1950s, he created movie posters and large-scale portraits of movie stars in his unique paint/airbrush technique for most of the classic European and American film producers, including UFA, Tobis, Sascha, MGM and Rank Organisation. During this period Mezey refined his bold, exciting colour compositions to a trend-setting and unparalleled level, his surviving original artworks have since valued collector's items.
