Jabari Ali Parker is an American professional basketball player for the Sacramento Kings of the National Basketball Association. He was selected by the Milwaukee Bucks with the second overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft, he ended his college career after one season of playing for Duke University. Parker was a standout high school athlete, helping his team win four straight state championships for Simeon Career Academy, was named the National High School Player of the Year by Gatorade and McDonald's. In his freshman year for the 2013–14 Duke Blue Devils, he was named a consensus first-team All-American, the USBWA National Freshman of the Year, the runner-up for the John R. Wooden Award. Parker is the son of former NBA player Sonny Parker. Parker's family has lived on Chicago's South Side since before Jabari was born, he was raised in the South Shore community area. Parker's father, has served hundreds of Chicago metropolitan area children as youth foundation director since 1990. Parker discovered basketball in one of his father's many leagues, although his father has never coached one of his teams.
He honed his basketball skills with his brother Christian on the basketball court at his local Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints meetinghouse in the Hyde Park community area in order to avoid the hazards of urban playgrounds. By second grade his basketball skills were superior to those of the fifth-graders he played with, he competed in middle school leagues as a fifth grader, he credits his cousin Jay Parker for pushing him to be better, starting when Jabari was in third grade and Jay was in fifth. Sometimes and Christian played basketball all through the night at the church. Jabari made the eighth-grade team as a fourth-grader, but could not play until fifth grade for MEN reasons. In fifth grade, he had five Division I scholarship offers as a 6-foot guard. In sixth grade, when he stood at 6 feet 2 inches, he visited Simeon for a day and scrimmaged with Derrick Rose. Parker attended Robert A. Black Magnet Elementary and made headlines when he made Simeon Career Academy his high school choice, just like Rose, Nick Anderson, Ben Wilson, Bobby Simmons and Deon Thomas before him.
Parker has two older sisters. However, he has claimed that the reason he chose Simeon was due to his perception of the likelihood that he could achieve team success on the basketball court. During the summer after finishing middle school, he received a National Basketball Players Association Top 100 Camp invitation, which he accepted. By this time, he stood at 6 feet 4 inches. Parker was the first freshman to start on the Simeon varsity team in school history. Over the course of the season, he contributed 19.3 points per game, 5.0 rebounds per game, 3.0 assists per game, while his team won the IHSA Class 4A state championship with a 25–9 record. By the end of the season, he had received numerous scholarship offers, including those from Illinois, Kansas, DePaul, Northwestern, Washington, BYU and Oregon State as well as significant interest from Kentucky and North Carolina, he earned the ESPN HS 2010 Freshman of the Year. He was a MaxPreps.com second team. As a sophomore, Parker helped; that season, he averaged 15.3 points and 5.9 rebounds per game, while his team won the IHSA Class 4A state championship with a 30–2 record.
He earned second team All-State recognition from the Chicago Tribune, while the Chicago Sun-Times listed him as a Class 4A All-State first-team selection with Ryan Boatright, Tracy Abrams, David Sobolewski and Frank Kaminsky. The 12-man Illinois Basketball Coaches Association Class 3A/4A boys' all-state first team included these five and Wayne Blackshear, Johnny Hill, Mike Shaw, Nnanna Egwu, Sam Thompson, Anthony Davis and Mycheal Henry, he earned the ESPN HS 2011 Sophomore of the year.

Coaches Izzo, Krzyzewski and Weber as well as Mayor Emanuel and cadres of their assistants were among those in attendance to see this March 6 IHSA sectional semifinal against Young won by Simeon 52–42 in which Parker led the way with 18 points and 6 rebounds. In the days prior to the state final four, Parker stated that although Coach Weber had been fired, he remained interested in Illinois and other in-state schools such as DePaul and Northwestern. Parker had 15 points in the March 17 championship game 50–48 victory over the Sterling Brown-led Proviso East High School, resulting in a 33–1 junior year record for Simeon; the state semifinals and the finals were broadcast live on ESPN3.

The scarlet tiger moth is a colorful moth belonging to the tiger moth subfamily, Arctiinae. The species was first described by Carl Linnaeus in his 1758 10th edition of Systema Naturae. Subspecies within this species include: Callimorpha dominula dominula Callimorpha dominula lusitanica Staudinger, 1894 Callimorpha dominula pompalis Nitsche, Callimorpha dominula persona Callimorpha dominula trinacriae Nardelli & Giandolfo, 1996 Callimorpha dominula profuga Callimorpha dominula rossica Kolenati, 1846 Callimorpha dominula philippsi Bartel, 1906 Callimorpha dominula kurdistanica Thomas, 1983 This species is present in most of Europe and in the Near East; these moths prefer damp areas, but they can be found on rocky cliffs close to the sea. Callimorpha dominula has a wingspan of 45–55 millimetres. Adults of this species are quite variable in color; the forewings have a metallic-green sheen on the blackish areas, with white and yellow or orange markings. Hindwings are red with three irregular black markings.
These moths may occur in rare color forms, one with yellow hindwings and body and one with extended black on hindwings. The thorax shows two longitudinal short yellow stripes; the abdomen is black. The scarlet tiger moth has developed mouthparts; the caterpillars can reach a length of about 40 millimetres. They are dark gray with small white dots; the imagines are active during the day in June. This species has a single generation; the caterpillars are polyphagous. They feed on comfrey, but on a number of other plants; the three morphs occurring in the population at the Cothill reserve in Oxfordshire, have been the subject of considerable genetic study, including research by E. B. Ford, Ronald Fisher and Denis Owen. Don McNamara describes. Dubatolov, V. V. "Tiger-moths of Eurasia ". Neue Entomologische Nachrichten. 65: 1-106. Fisher, R. A. & Ford, E. B..

Diptychus is a genus of cyprinid freshwater fish, consisting of two species found in Himalaya and the Tibetan Plateau of China, India and Pakistan, ranging west to the Tien Shan Mountains and Central Asia. The type species is the scaly osman, Diptychus maculatus; the name is derived from the Greek word di, meaning "two", the Greek word ptyx, meaning "fold". Diptychus is up to 70 cm in total length. Diptychus is a part of the schizothoracines, which includes the genera Aspiorhynchus, Gymnodiptychus, Oxygymnocypris, Ptychobarbus, Schizopyge and Schizothorax. There are two recognized species in this genus: Diptychus maculatus Steindachner, 1866 Diptychus sewerzowi Kessler, 1872
