Methylthiouracil

Methylthiouracil is an organosulfur compound, used antithyroid preparation. It is a thioamide related to propylthiouracil. Methylthiouracil is not used clinically in the United States, it has a similar mechanism of action and side effect to that of propylthiouricil; the drug acts to decrease the formation of stored thyroid hormone, as thyroglobulin in the thyroid gland. The clinical effects of the drug to treat the hyperthyroid state can have a lag period of up to two weeks, depending on the stores of thyroglobulin and other factors. Methylthiouracil is prepared quite by condensation of ethyl acetoacetate with thiourea. Further work in this series shows that better activity was obtained by incorporation of a lipophilic side chain

Skvader

The skvader is a Swedish fictional creature, constructed in 1918 by the taxidermist Rudolf Granberg and is permanently displayed at the museum at Norra Berget in Sundsvall. It has the forequarters and hindlegs of a European hare, the back and tail of a female wood grouse, it was jokingly given the Latin name Tetrao lepus pseudo-hybridus rarissimus L. The name is a combination of two words, explained by the Svenska Akademiens ordbok as being from the "prefix skva- from'skvattra', the suffix -der from'tjäder'"; the skvader originates from a tall tale hunting story told by a man named Håkan Dahlmark during a dinner at a restaurant in Sundsvall in the beginning of the 20th century. To the amusement of the other guests, Dahlmark claimed that he in 1874 had shot such an animal during a hunt north of Sundsvall. On his birthday in 1907, his housekeeper jokingly presented him with a painting of the animal, made by her nephew and shortly before his death in 1912, Dahlmark donated the painting to a local museum.

During an exhibition in Örnsköldsvik in 1916 the manager of the museum became acquainted with the taxidermist Rudolf Granberg. He mentioned the hunting story and the painting and asked Granberg if he could re-construct the animal. In 1918 Granberg had completed the skvader and it has since been a popular exhibition item at the museum, which has the painting on display. A strikingly similar creature called the "rabbit-bird" was described by Pliny the Elder in Natural History; this creature was said to have inhabited the Alps. Other similar creatures include the Bavarian wolpertinger, the Austrian raurakl, the Thuringian Forest's rasselbock, the Palatinate's Elwedritsche, the American jackalope; the skvader has since often been seen as an unofficial symbol for Sundsvall and when the province Medelpad was to be given a provincial animal in 1987, many locals voted for the skvader. The final choice was a kind of compromise, the mountain hare, the front-end of the skvader; the term "skvader" is nowadays used colloquially in Swedish to mean "a bad compromise" or "a combination of contradicting elements"."Skvader" became the nickname in the 1950s and 1960s for a combination bus and lorry, or bruck, used on small bus routes in Norrland.

"Skvaderns" is a herbal liquer made with herbs from the forest Lunde Skog, the place Skvaderns first were shot at. The Skvader, museum site The Skvader, museum of hoaxes Forgeries and Frauds

Yellowstone Park bison herd

The Yellowstone Park bison herd in Yellowstone National Park is the oldest and largest public bison herd in the United States. Yellowstone is known for its geothermal activity and large mammals elk, timber wolves, bears, pronghorns and bighorn sheep; the Yellowstone Park bison herd was estimated in 2015 to be 4,900 bison The bison in the Yellowstone Park bison herd are American bison of the Plains bison subspecies. Yellowstone National Park may be the only location in the United States where free-ranging bison were never extirpated, since they continued to exist in the wild and were not re-introduced, as has been done in most other bison herd areas. Other large free-ranging, publicly controlled herds of bison in the United States include the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve in Kansas, Wind Cave bison herd, the Antelope Island bison herd, the Henry Mountains bison herd in Utah, the National Bison Range herd near Flathead Lake, Montana; the Yellowstone Park bison herd is divided into two sub-herds that are isolated from each other.

The Northern Range herd which numbers 2300 individuals ranges from the northern park entrance near Gardiner, Montana through the Blacktail Plateau and into the Lamar Valley. The Central Interior herd, which numbers 1400 individuals, ranges from the Madison River valley into the Hayden Valley and Upper and Lower Geyser Basins; the National Park Service targets 3000 bison as the optimal herd size for the park. In 2016 the population had grown to 5,500 animals. In the winter of 2016/2017 and 2019/2020 the park service will reduce herd size by at least 900 animals. Through the use of licensed hunters and live capture, bison will be turned over to Native American tribes for slaughter. "Bison" in Yellowstone Park are more called "buffalo" by park visitors. The term "buffalo" is sometimes considered to be a misnomer for this animal, as it is only distantly related to either of the two "true buffalo", the Asian water buffalo and the African buffalo. However, "bison" is a Greek word meaning ox-like animal, while "buffalo" originated with the French fur trappers who called these massive beasts bœufs, meaning ox or bullock—so both names, "bison" and "buffalo", have a similar meaning.

Though the name "Bison" might be considered to be more scientifically correct, as a result of standard usage the name "buffalo" is considered correct and is listed in many dictionaries as an acceptable name for American Buffalo or bison. In reference to this animal, the term "buffalo", dates to 1635 in North American usage when the term was first recorded for the American mammal, it thus has a much longer history than the term "bison", first recorded in 1774. The American bison is closely related to the wisent or European bison. American Bison once numbered in the millions between 25 million and 60 million by some estimates, they were the most numerous large land animal on earth. However, by the late 1880s, they had been hunted to near extinction throughout North America, it appears that the Yellowstone Park bison herd was the last free-ranging bison herd in the United States and the only place where bison were not extirpated in the United States. The Yellowstone Park bison herd is descended from a remnant population of 23 individual bison that survived the mass slaughter of the 19th century by hiding out in the Pelican Valley of Yellowstone Park.

To assist in the species' revival, in 1896, the United States government purchased one bull and seven cows from the Lincoln Park Zoo's bison herd for Yellowstone. In 1902, a captive herd of 21 Goodnight plains bison was introduced to the park and moved to the Lamar Valley and managed as livestock until the 1960s, when a policy of natural regulation was adopted by the park. American bison live in river valleys, on prairies and plains, their typical habitat is open or semi-open grasslands, as well as sagebrush, semi-arid lands and scrublands. Some wooded areas are known to have supported bison. Bison will graze in hilly or mountainous areas where the slopes are not steep. Though bison are not known as high altitude animals, members of the Yellowstone Park bison herd are found at elevations above 8,000 feet and a herd started with founder animals from Yellowstone, the Henry Mountains bison herd, is found on the plains around the Henry Mountains, Utah, as well as in mountain valleys of the Henry Mountains to an altitude of 10,000 feet.

Yellowstone National Park has large areas of alpine meadows and grass prairie and this provides a nearly optimum environment for American bison. Bison are large herd animals. American bison can run up to 35 miles per hour and are surprising agile, in addition to their notable strength and irritable temperament. Significant apex predators that are found in Yellowstone National Park and may threaten bison include black bears, Grizzly bears and wolf packs. Other large mammals found in Yellowstone include elk, coyotes, deer and bighorn sheep. Timber wolves and bears are successful predators of bison, but bison meat is not a major component of their diet. Competitive pressure from the other large grazing mammals in Yellowstone Park may help limit the number of bison in the herd, but this is not considered to have had a significant effect on bison numbers. Disease, including various viruses and brucellosis, have a greater effect on bison population. However, a common cause of death for these bison continues to be hunting by human beings.

The Exit List

The Exit List is a British game show that aired on ITV from 10 January to 28 February 2012, hosted by Matt Allwright. Two contestants play as a team in each episode, first trying to accumulate as much money as possible by answering questions attempting to win it by recalling the answers they have given as their "Exit List." The main game is played in the "Memory Maze," an arrangement of 26 identical rooms in six rows. Each room contains a vault with a computer display and two glass cylinders inserted vertically into a console; the first row, where the team enters, has one room. Upon entering a room and activating its display, the team is confronted with one of the following: A question for a prize of £1,000, £2,000, £3,000, £4,000, £5,000, or £10,000, increasing from first row to sixth; when a question is found, the host gives four possible answers. The contestants have 30 seconds to answer, starting as soon as the fourth choice appears on the room's display, cannot change their minds once they verbally state that they want to "lock in" their choice.

A correct response allows the contestants to retrieve the cash value of the question from the room's vault and add it to a briefcase they must carry with them throughout the game. The correct answer is added to their Exit List. If the contestants answer incorrectly or fail to lock in an answer in time, they win no money and all four choices are added to the Exit List as a group. If the contestants enter a Panic Room, they are shown a series of images and related information in quick succession must recall 10 requested portions of it in 30 seconds. Multiple attempts on a particular item are allowed, by one or both contestants, they may pass on an item and return to it if time allows. No money is at stake in the Panic Rooms. If the contestants complete the challenge, their Exit List remains intact. Otherwise, any missed answers are turned into a "Panic Code" by combining the first letter/number of each to form an alphanumeric sequence; this Panic Code is added to the Exit List. The contestants enter the Memory Maze through the single room on the first row and must always proceed ahead, left, or right.

They may not return to any visited rooms or back up past their current row. When they answer a question or complete a Panic Room challenge, they may move ahead into the next row if they wish, or go to either side as permitted. If the contestants answer a question incorrectly or fail to complete a Panic Room challenge, the door in front of them becomes blocked and they must move to one side or the other. At the end of each question or Panic Room, the entire Exit List is read aloud with any new items added, the host advises the contestants of the categories of any rooms open to them and offers them a chance to exit the Memory Maze. If the contestants become blocked in and unable to move, they may advance to the next row at the cost of giving up all their winnings to that point. In this case, their Exit List will continue to grow, they may choose to exit the Memory Maze and avoid giving up the money. When the contestants choose to exit, each removes one of the two glass cylinders from the console in the room where they have stopped.

One cylinder is shorter than the other. He/she dons a pair of headphones so that he/she cannot hear any discussions between the partner and the host; the partner is presented with a cash offer, based on the accumulated winnings and the length of the Exit List, must decide whether to accept or reject it. The decision is kept secret from everyone else at this point. After the contestant still in the Memory Maze removes the headphones, the lights to mark the team's route are turned off and he/she must backtrack to the entrance one room at a time, following that exact route and carrying the case of money. In each room, starting with the one in which the team decided to exit, he/she must state one item on the Exit List. He/she may offer multiple guesses without penalty; the items may be recalled in any order, but any groups of four items must be given together in order to count. The contestant is given 10 seconds for each room. Entering a room not on the route triggers a klaxon and requires the contestant to find the correct next step as the clock continues to run.

After the contestant either succeeds or fails in exiting the Memory Maze within the given time, his/her partner's decision is revealed. If the partner has rejected the offer, the team wins all the money they accumulated for a successful exit, or nothing in the event of a failure. However, if the partner has accepted, the team wins that amount of cash regardless of the outcome for the exit attempt. Airing No longer airing Non-broadcast pilot The Hungarian version of the show is called "A kód"; the memory maze is different from the original version. Instead of rooms there are just normal squares without walls; the host follows the contestants in the maze so there is more interaction between him and the players. The structure of the maze and the rules of the Panic rooms are the same like in the original version; the price for a question is 50 000 Ft, 100,000 Ft, 150 000 Ft, 200,000 Ft, 300 000 Ft, 500 000 Ft depending on which row the vault sits on.
