Dendroconus

Dendroconus is a subgenus of sea snails, marine gastropod mollusks in the genus Conus, family Conidae, the cone snails and their allies. In the new classification of the family Conidae by Puillandre N. Duda T. F. Meyer C. Olivera B. M. & Bouchet P. Dendroconus has become a subgenus of Conus: Conus Tucker & Tenorio, 2013 represented as Conus Linnaeus, 1758 The Tucker & Tenorio 2009 taxonomy distinguishes Dendroconus from Conus in the following ways: Genus Conus Linnaeus, 1758Shell characters The basic shell shape is conical to elongated conical, has a deep anal notch on the shoulder, a smooth periostracum and a small operculum; the shoulder of the shell is nodulose and the protoconch is multispiral. Markings include the presence of tents except for black or white color variants, with the absence of spiral lines of minute tents and textile bars. Radular tooth The radula has an elongated anterior section with serrations and a large exposed terminating cusp, a non-obvious waist, blade is either small or absent and has a short barb, lacks a basal spur.

Geographical distribution These species are found in the Indo-Pacific region. Feeding habits These species eat other gastropods including cones. Subgenus Dendroconus Swainson, 1840Shell characters The shell is large and turgid to conical in shape; the protoconch is multispiral and nodules are either absent or die out in whorls. The shoulders are rounded and the shell is ornamented with cords which become numerous and small in the outer whorls; the anal notch is shallow. The periostracum may be smooth but is thick and ridged, the operculum is small. Radular tooth The anterior section of the radula is equal to or longer than the posterior section; the blade is long and covers at least half the length of the anterior section of the radular tooth. A basal spur is present, the barb is short; the radular tooth has serrations and the terminating cusp is exposed along the shaft. Geographical distribution These species are found in the Indo-Pacific region. Feeding habits These species are vermivorous; this list of species is based on the information in the World Register of Marine Species list.

Bossas & Ballads – The Lost Sessions

In 1989, tenor saxophonist Stan Getz recorded a couple of sessions for A&M Records. But the results were shelved in favor of Apasionado, an orchestrated Latin jazz suite, released in 1990; these sessions, recorded by A&M and issued for the first time on Verve Records, show Getz playing bossa nova and ballads in his years. It highlighted the compositions of Kenny Barron, with whom Getz worked in his final years.

Guthriea

Guthriea capensis is an acaulescent perennial herb endemic to South Africa and occurring in cool and damp sites facing south or east in the mountains of the Cape Province and KwaZulu-Natal. Guthriea is monotypic and was named after the botanist and mathematician Francis Guthrie by his friend the botanist Harry Bolus; this ground-hugging species with a rhizome and fleshy roots forms a compact rosette of some 20-30 broadly elliptic or cordate discolorous leaves with crenate margins, measuring about 50 x 75 mm, glossy above with indented venation hiding creamy-green flowers which are solitary and stalked. Guthriea belongs to the family Achariaceae, a family which now includes various species placed in the Flacourtiaceae, such as Kiggelaria africana, Rawsonia lucida and Xylotheca kraussiana. "Acaulescent perennial herbs with fleshy roots. Leaves rosulate, ovate or cordate, discolorous, crenate. Flowers pedicelled. Male flowers: sepals 5, linear as long as corolla and adnate to it for its whole length.

Female flowers: sepals 4 or 5, adnate to corolla for half their length. Fruit a 4- or 5-valved capsule, enclosed in persistent corolla. Seeds several, arillate." The Achariaceae is a small family of perennial and sympetalous dicotyledons endemic to southern Africa. The family comprises three monotypic genera of diverse growth habit and habitat: Acharia tragodes Thunb. A sparsely branched, subherbaceous shrublet of valley bushveld centered in the Eastern Cape. Meeuse, a herbaceous, non-tendriliferous twiner from forest margins along the eastern escarpment of the country, Guthriea capensis Bolus, a rosette plant with underground rootstock occurring in open grassland on the southern Drakensberg and in sheltered niches among rocks on high mountains of the Karoo. In vegetative morphology and anatomy the genera differ markedly, but the monoecious breeding system, the hypogynous flowers with sympetalous corollas and the swollen trichomes on the anthers knit the taxa together Distribution map Close-up of flowers Underside of leaf and flowers

Municipal Assistance Corporation

A Municipal Assistance Corporation was an independent New York State public-benefit corporation created by the State of New York for purposes of providing financing assistance and fiscal oversight of a fiscally-distressed city. Two MACs are explicitly designated under New York law. Best known is the MAC for New York City, created in response to the city's fiscal crisis of the mid-1970s; the corporation was born of a recommendation made by a special panel composed of Simon H. Rifkind, Felix G. Rohatyn, Richard M. Shinn and Donald B. Smiley; the majority of appointees to the corporation’s board were made by the Governor by New York Governor Hugh Carey. As part of the creation of MAC, the state passed legislation that converted the city’s sales and stock transfer taxes into state taxes. In 2008, having sold $10 billion in bonds to keep the city solvent through its worst fiscal crisis, MAC settled its final accounts and voted itself out of existence; the other MAC was created on July 1995 for the City of Troy.

In 2017, MAC of for the City of Troy had operating expenses of $50,000, an outstanding debt of $24.45 million, no reported staff members.
