Demographics of Cameroon

The demographic profile of Cameroon is complex for a country of its population. Cameroon comprises an estimated 250 distinct ethnic groups, which may be formed into five large regional-cultural divisions: western highlanders, including the Bamileke and many smaller Tikar groups in the Northwest; the Cameroon government held two national censuses during the country's first 44 years as an independent country, in 1976 and again in 1987. Results from the second head count were never published. A third census, expected to take years to produce results, began on November 11, 2005, with a three-week interviewing phase, it is one of a series of projects and reforms required by the International Monetary Fund as prerequisites for foreign debt relief. The first results were published in 2010. According to the 2019 revision of the World Population Prospects the total population was 25,216,267 in 2018, compared to only 4 466 000 in 1950; the proportion of children below the age of 15 in 2010 was 40.6%, 55.9% was between 15 and 65 years of age, while 3.5% was 65 years or older.

Total Fertility Rate and Crude Birth Rate: Fertility data as of 2011: Registration of vital events is in Cameroon not complete. The Population Departement of the United Nations prepared the following estimates. Cameroon Highlanders 31% Equatorial Bantu 19% Kirdi 11% Fulani 10% Northwestern Bantu 8% Eastern Nigritic 7% Other African 13% Non-African less than 1% There are 24 major African language groups in Cameroon. Cameroonian Pidgin English is widely spoken. Peoples concentrated in the Southwest and Northwest Provinces—around Buea and Bamenda—use standard English and Cameroonian Pidgin English, as well as their local languages. In the three northern provinces—Adamawa and Far North—either French or Fulfulde is spoken. Elsewhere, French is the principal second language, although pidgin and some local languages such as Ewondo, the dialect of a Beti clan from the Yaoundé area, have a wide currency. Indigenous languages of Cameroon include: Basaa Bikya Bung Kanuri Ngumba Yeni Bamum Demographic statistics according to the World Population Review in 2019.

Stuff is the biggest media website in New Zealand, with a monthly unique audience of more than 2 million. Stuff was launched in 2000 and publishes New Zealand breaking news, sport, video, entertainment and life and style content from Stuff Ltd's newspapers, which include New Zealand's second and third-highest circulation daily newspapers, The Dominion Post and The Press, the highest circulation weekly, Sunday Star-Times, as well as international news wire services. Stuff has won numerous awards at the Newspaper Publishers' Association awards including Best News Website or App in 2014 and 2019, Website of the Year in 2013 and 2018; the former New Zealand media company Independent Newspapers Ltd, owned by News Corp Australia, launched Stuff on 27 June 2000 at a cybercafe in Auckland, after announcing its intention to go online more than a year earlier. The development of Stuff was supported and governed by, the INL Board, Mike Robson, INL CEO, Don Higgins, Corporate Development Manager.

Mark Wierzbicki, founding Internet Business Manager, lead development and ongoing management of the Stuff site and team. Advertising agency Saatchi & Saatchi conceived the name "Stuff", INL had to buy the domain name from a cyber squatter. In its first month, the site had 120,000 unique visitors. At the time, Wierzbicki described the name as a copywriter's dream, although he conceded that "it's not without risk if we stuff up." The start up website was built by a group of tech companies in Wellington led by project manager Bill Alp and founding CTO and engineering manager Will Everitt and used a software platform from News Corp Australia's news.com.au. On 30 June 2003, INL sold its publishing assets including The Dominion Post, The Press, the Stuff website to Fairfax Media. Fairfax upgraded the website in December 2006, again on 4 March 2009, adding the ability for visitors to personalise the homepage; the first mobile phone news service from Stuff began in 2003, in a partnership with Vodafone New Zealand.

On 21 April 2009, Stuff launched a dedicated mobile site. On 1 February 2018, the parent company of Stuff changed its name from Fairfax New Zealand Limited to Stuff Limited. In December 2018 Fairfax Media merged into Nine Entertainment Co.

Albatraoz

Albatraoz is a Swedish electro house-hip hop band from Borås, formed in 2012. The band consists of Aron "AronChupa" Ekberg, Nicklas "Savvo" Savolainen, AndyBar Maskinen and Sahlberg "Salle" Rasmus. In 2009 Aron Ekberg, Måns Harvidsson, Andreas Reinholdsson, Nicklas Savvolainen and Rasmus Sahlberg become members of the Swedish fourth division professional football club Byttorps IF and began their careers as footballers. In 2012 they recorded a demo produced by Aron; the group went professional. On 2 August 2013 their debut single was released, the self-titled "Albatraoz"; the song remained nineteen weeks on the chart. "Albatraoz" was certified platinum in Sweden. In January 2014 the song reached 8.5 million plays on Spotify and the group toured to promote the song. On 18 April 2014 the group released their second single, "Arriba", but the song didn't peak in the charts. During a concert in February 2017 in Bohuslän, the group made headlines after the member Måns Harvidsson had pressed a female audience member's face towards his groin on stage.

This was witnessed by both a security guard at the club and by friends of the victim, who had filmed the act with her mobile phone. In the recording it can be seen how Harvidsson grasps the victim by her hair and presses her face against his genitals before he let her go. In an apology to the victim Harvidsson explains that the girls would never understand the feeling and he compared it with how actors enters a role in a film, he said, according to the victim and her friend, "how should I know that she didn't want if I didn't try?". After the incident the record company Sony Music decided to terminate all cooperation between them and Albatraoz. Harvidsson was fired from the band the same day, all members cut off contact with him and apologized for the former member's violence. Two years after the incident, in February 2019, Uddevalla District Court sentenced Harvidsson to 80 day-fines for sexual harassment, he was to pay 5 000 SEK in damages to the victim, half of what she had claimed. Harvidsson had during his case denied the charges and argued that in the event the court would find him guilty, no punishment should be given on the ground that his musical career had suffered greatly.

The court did. He was accused by a second woman from the concert, who claimed that he had flicked her on the buttocks with a towel and kissed her on the neck. In this case the court dropped the charges citing lack of evidence.

Sirtuin 5

Sirtuin 5 known as SIRT5 is a protein which in humans in encoded by the SIRT5 gene and in other species by the orthologous Sirt5 gene. This gene encodes a member of the sirtuin family of homologs to the yeast Sir2 protein. Members of the sirtuin family are characterized by a sirtuin core domain and belong to the class III of the superfamily, are dependent on NAD+ as co-factor of enzymatic activities. SIRT5 is one of the three sirtuins localized to the mitochondrion. Alternative splicing of this gene results in two transcript variants; the protein structure of SIRT5 has been resolved and shows high degrees of structural conservation with other sirtuins, such as the ancestral yeast protein and human SIRT2. SIRT5 has been found to exhibit enzymatic activities as a deacetylase and demalonylase, capable of removing acetyl and malonyl groups from the lysine residues of proteins. SIRT5 deacetylases and regulates carbamoyl phosphate synthetase, the rate-limiting and initiating step of the urea cycle in liver mitochondria.

Deacetylation of CPS1 stimulates its enzymatic activity. Mice with deletion of SIRT5 show elevated ammonia levels after a prolonged fast, whereas in contrast, mice overexpressing SIRT5 show increased CPS1 activity, suggesting one of the functions of SIRT5 may be to regulate the urea cycle. SIRT5 interacts with and deacetylates cytochrome c. Large-scale profiling studies of SIRT5 deacetylase activity have uncovered over 700 protein substrates, including proteins localized to the mitochondria, the cytosol and other sub cellular localization; the identities of SIRT5 desuccinylation substrates suggest that SIRT5-mediated desuccinylation may be involved in energy metabolism. The physiological consequences of SIRT5 molecular functions in human is under investigation but may involved regulations of mitochondrial metabolism. NAD+ Cytochrome c Carbamoyl phosphate synthetase

Consultation (Texas)

The Consultation known as the Texian Government, served as the provisional government of Mexican Texas from October 1835 to March 1836 during the Texas Revolution. Tensions rose in Texas during early 1835 as throughout Mexico federalists began to oppose the centralist policies of the government. In the summer, Texians elected delegates to a political convention to be held in Gonzales in mid-October. Weeks before the convention and war began, the Texian Militia took up arms against Mexican soldiers at the Battle of Gonzales; the convention was postponed until November 1 after many of the delegates joined the newly organized volunteer Texian Army to initiate a siege of the Mexican garrison at San Antonio de Bexar. On November 3, a quorum was reached in San Antonio. Within days, the delegates passed a resolution to define, they expressed allegiance to the deposed Constitution of 1824 and maintained their right to form the General Council. In the next weeks, the council authorized the creation of a new regular army to be commanded by Sam Houston.

As Houston worked to establish an army independent from the existing volunteer army, the council interfered in military matters. After authorizing an expedition to take Matamoros, the council named several men to organize and lead the assault, angry at the effect the expedition was having on existing Texian garrisons, Smith dissolved the council. Alleging that Smith did not have the authority to disband them, council members impeached him and lieutenant governor James W. Robinson was named acting governor; the Mexican War of Independence severed Spain's control over much of its North American territories, including Texas. The 1824 Constitution of Mexico defined the new country as a federal republic with nineteen states and four territories. Due to limited population and poor economies, the provinces of Texas and Coahuila were combined to become the state Coahuila y Tejas. In the hopes that an influx of settlers could control the Indian raids, the new government liberalized immigration policies for the region.

Under the General Colonization Law people from the United States could, for the first time settle in Texas. Large tracts of land were granted to empresarios, who were responsible for recruiting settlers and establishing communities in Texas. With one exception, the new colonies were settled by foreigners. Tejanos, Texas residents of Mexican descent, were soon vastly outnumbered by Anglos. By 1834, an estimated 30,000 Anglos lived compared to only 7,800 Tejanos. By 1833, Texas was divided into three political divisions: the Department of Béxar, the Department of Nacogdoches, the Department of the Brazos. By late 1834, the Mexican government began transitioning from a federalist model to centralism. Santa Anna overturned the 1824 Constitution, dismissed the state legislatures, ordered all militias disbanded. Federalists throughout Mexico were appalled; the governor of Coahuila y Tejas, Agustín Viesca, refused to dissolve the legislature, instead ordering that the session reconvene in Béxar, further from the influence of the Mexican army.

Viesca was arrested. Citizens in the states of Oaxaca and Zacatecas took up arms. Public opinion in Texas was divided. In June 1835, one group staged a minor revolt against customs duties in Anahuac. Resolutions by the city councils in Mina, Gonzales and Columbia denounced their actions. Civic leaders in Mina were so disgusted they called for public meetings to determine whether settlers supported independence, a return to federalism, or the status quo. Although some leaders worried that Mexican officials would see this type of gathering as a step toward revolution, the ayuntamientos of both Columbia and San Felipe endorsed the suggestion, they hoped that a political convention would make it quite clear that the majority of Texians did not support the radicals. After the leaders of Columbia argued forcefully for the convention, the political chief of the department of the Brazos called for a meeting of representatives of municipalities in that department on August 1. Only four of the seven appointed delegates appeared.

Discovering there was no official agenda, the four men returned home without doing anything. As a response to the Anahuac disturbances, the commander of the Mexican army in Texas, Domingo de Ugartechea, requested reinforcements to help capture the dissidents. Small groups of soldiers began arriving in early August. On August 9, citizens at a public meeting in Brazoria again broached the idea of a larger political convention. Other communities debated whether to participate in such a convention, whether its goals should be an exchange of opinions or to create an interim government; the proposed political gathering, which became known as the Consultation, was endorsed by Stephen F. Austin, the first empresario in Texas, on September 8, which solidified support throughout the Anglo colonies. Austin became the de facto leader of the Consultation, making plans for the gathering, which would convene on October 15, he requested that each community send one delegate early, to form a Permanent Council to start gathering opinions.

In the interim, hostilities between Mexican soldiers and Texian colonists increased, in early October Texian Militia attacked a Mexican army contingent, sent to retrieve a cannon, loaned to Gonzales. This small skirmish marked the official start of the Texas Revolution. Gonzales became a rallying point for Texas settlers who opposed the centralist policies, men flocked to the town. On October 11, the Texian Mili

Nothing to Worry About

"Nothing to Worry About" is the first single by Peter Bjorn and John from the album Living Thing. The music video premiered in 2009; the song was featured in a season five episode of the MTV series The Hills entitled "Crazy In Love". The song was featured in commercials for the fifth season of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Cinemax HD in its spring 2009 ad campaign, EA Sports game, FIFA 10. A remix of the song was used in the promo for season five of the TV series Bones; the video was directed by Andreas Nilsson, it features the Japanese Rockabilly subculture. The video begins with the Black Shadow's boss in his apartment preparing his exaggerated ducktail hairdo and going out; the rest of the video shows him and his rockabilly gang dancing in Yoyogi Park in Harajuku and ends with a man trying to start his motorcycle, only to realize the engine is shot. The band does not appear in the video. Music video for "Nothing to Worry About" on YouTube Lyrics of this song at MetroLyrics
