Geoplana

Geoplana is a genus of land planarians from South America. The genus Geoplana was erected in 1857 by William Stimpson and included most land planarians with several eyes distributed along the body. Species with only two eyes were placed in the genus Rhynchodemus, while species with a crescent-shaped head were placed in Bipalium. In the same year unaware of Stimpson's paper, the naturalist Max Schultze, based on published information and new species collected in Brazil by the naturalist Fritz Müller erected a genus named Geoplana, but included all land planarians in it. However, Stimpson's system prevailed. During most of the 20th century, many new land planarian species from Australia and South America, were placed in Geoplana. In 1955, Eudóxia Maria Froehlich defined that Geoplana vaginuloides would be the type-species of Geoplana, as it was the first species listed by Stimpson. In 1990, Robert E. Ogren and Masaharu Kawakatsu published a review of the classification of land planarians and divided Geoplana in four genera: Geoplana, Gigantea and Pasipha.

Geoplana retained all species with dorsal testes, a protrusible penis and a female canal entering the genital antrum dorsally. Species with ventral testes, without a protrusible penis or with a female canal entering the genital antrum ventrally were placed in other genera. During the 21st century, molecular studies revealed that Geoplana sensu Ogren & Kawakatsu was still heterogeneous. A study published in 2013 by Carbayo et al. based on molecular data, divided Geoplana in 6 genera: Geoplana, Cratera, Matuxia and Paraba. Only three species remained as Geoplana, along with several incertae sedis; the genus Geoplana is characterized by having the features described by Ogren & Kawatasu plus several others, such as a slender body with nearly parallel margins, a convex dorsum, monolobulated eyes, a strong muscle tube around the intestine. There are only thirteen species belonging to Geoplana: Also, there are several species considered incertae sedis

Firestar (Marvel Comics)

Firestar is a fictional mutant superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Debuting in 1981 on the NBC animated television series, Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, she has the ability to generate and manipulate microwave radiation, allowing her to fly and create intense heat and flames. In the comics, she has acted as a solo hero and as a member of the Hellions, the New Warriors, the Avengers, the X-Men. Firestar - spelled as Fire-Star - was created for the NBC animated series Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, with Kathy Garver providing her voice; the creators had wanted to use the Human Torch, but the rights to the character were tied up. Fire-Star's pre-production names included Heatwave and Firefly. Dennis Marks, one of the original writers of Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, stated in a 2002 interview that he had come up with the name of Fire-Star's alias, Angelica Jones, taken from one of his old girlfriends. In the series, Fire-Star is identified as a former member of the X-Men, along with Iceman with whom she appears to have a playful flirtation and sometimes dates.

At times, she dates Peter Parker as well. Fire-Star has a one-episode romance with Sunfire, her origin is explained in "A Fire-Star is Born": Young Angelica Jones was subject to constant bullying by another girl named Bonnie who called her "Miss Angelica Jinx" due to events mysteriously happening whenever Angelica was around. It was during this time that she became aware of her powers, once saving her father from an accident while disguised. Early in her senior year of high school and her boyfriend framed Angelica for the theft of a trophy, causing Dean Wilmer to temporarily suspend Angelica from school. A strong need to correct this situation led Angelica to become Fire-Star for the first time, she found proof of Bonnie's deception, retrieved the missing trophy, compelled Bonnie to confess, which justified their expulsion from school. She was approached by Cyclops and Iceman to join the X-Men, she was seen helping them against Magneto and the Sentinels. The animated series and the one-shot Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends comic book are not considered part of standard Marvel Universe continuity.

However, the 2006 one-shot comic Spider-Man Family: Amazing Friends features an in-continuity story, "Opposites Attack!", in which the three superheroes work as a short-lived team. This story takes place shortly after the up-and-coming hero Firestar becomes a founding member of the New Warriors. Firestar's first in-continuity comic book appearance was in Uncanny X-Men #193, she next appeared in her own mini-series, which presented her in-continuity origin. The Firestar four issue mini-series depicts events both before and after Firestar's appearance in Uncanny X-Men #193, showing her development from a shy, insecure girl afraid of her developing powers to a confident young woman capable of defeating Emma Frost; the mini-series established that Firestar's powers were microwave-based, rather than the more common fire-generation power that her animated counterpart displayed. Despite the mini-series' efforts to flesh out the character, Firestar was not featured in any stories for a few years and seemed destined to fade into obscurity until she joined the New Warriors.

She would go on to appear as a regular character in Avengers, the informal all-female team "Marvel Divas". After the special Firestar one-shot issue, Firestar returned to full-time superheroics as a character in the short-lived comic series Young Allies. Firestar appears. Firestar was one of the feature characters in the 2011 six-issue limited series Fear Itself: Youth in Revolt. At the 2013 San Diego Comic Con, it was announced that "Firestar is going to take her place as a major X-Men character for the first time" starring in the new comic book Amazing X-Men in November 2013. A lonely girl raised by her single father Bartholomew and paternal grandmother, Angelica Jones discovered that she possessed mutant powers. After her grandmother's death by heart failure and her revelation that she was a mutant, her father sent Angelica to the Massachusetts Academy; the Hellfire Club's original White Queen Emma Frost began training Angelica in the use of her powers for the Hellfire Club's team of young mutants.

She was never sent on field missions with the other Hellions, because of her lack of control over her lethal powers and because the White Queen wished to instill cruelty and callousness in Firestar's personality, befriending other young mutants would work against that goal. The White Queen manipulated Angelica into perceiving Frost as a loving mother figure, unaware that Frost was secretly grooming her to be a potential assassin and bodyguard. Angelica did meet the New Mutants at an Academy dance and, with the White Queen's telepathic prompting, formed a crush on Cannonball. Firestar was emotionally manipulated by Empath, accompanied the Hellions Thunderbird and Roulette on a mission against the X-Men, in which Thunderbird sought revenge on Xavier, thinking him responsible for his brother's death. Angelica felt terrible guilt over the incident once she was free of Empath's power, ho

Sauber C13

The Sauber C13 was a Formula One car. It was designed by André de Cortanze and Leo Ress for use by the Sauber Team in the 1994 Formula One season; the car was powered by a Ilmor 3.5L V10 engine badged as a Mercedes-Benz. The development of this car signalled Mercedes-Benz's return to Formula One, providing their first engine for an F1 car since 1955. Drivers for the team throughout the season were Karl Wendlinger, Andrea de Cesaris, JJ Lehto and Heinz-Harald Frentzen. Only Frentzen drove for the entire season. From the Spanish Grand Prix, the car ran with higher cockpit sides after Wendlinger suffered severe injuries in a side-on accident during qualifying at the Monaco Grand Prix which left him in a coma. Higher cockpit sides were made mandatory for all cars in the 1996 season, are still in use as of 2019; the C13 raced with Broker as main title sponsor until the 1994 French Grand Prix, when Tissot replaced them on the car. The C13 was replaced for the 1995 season by the Sauber C14
