Parker Morse Bohn III is a left-handed American professional bowler. He has been a member of the Professional Bowlers Association since 1984, is a member of the PBA and USBC Halls of Fame, he ranks fifth all-time with 35 career PBA Tour titles, has earned over $3.1 million in PBA events — only the fourth PBA player to top the $3 million mark. Bohn won the $150,000 winner-take-all prize in the 2008 Motel 6 Roll to Riches event, but the earnings in this event did not count toward PBA career totals. Through the 2018 season, he has thrown 114 career perfect 300 games in PBA competition, including the 13th PBA nationally televised 300 game at the 1998 ABC Masters in Reno, Nevada. Bohn's best career stretch was from 1997 through 2001–02, during which he won 18 titles overall and at least one title each season, his best single season came in 1999, when he won five titles and earned PBA Player of the Year honors. The'99 season featured a streak, his 1999 single-season average of 228.03 ranks fourth all-time.

He would be named Player of the Year in the 2001–02 season, a year highlighted by a major championship title at the 2001 ABC Masters. Bohn won his second major tournament at age 49 by winning the PBA World Championship in January 2013, he joined the PBA50 Tour in 2014, has four titles on that Tour, while continuing to bowl on the standard PBA Tour. Bohn owns 25 PBA Regional Tour titles and three PBA50 Regional Tour titles; the 52-year-old Bohn won his 35th PBA Tour title at the PBA Cheetah Championship in December 2015, topping England's Paul Moor in the final match, 210–206. The win broke the career titles tie Bohn held with Mark Roth, moving him alone into fifth-place all time. Coupled with Bohn's win at the PBA Players Championship earlier in the year, 2015 marked the first time he won multiple titles in a season since 2001–02, his win was a breakthrough as he had finished runner-up at the Players Championship in 1993, 1996, 1998, 1999. Bohn was retroactively awarded a major title for his 2015 PBA Players Championship victory.

After the tournament returned to major status in the 2016 season, the PBA voted to award additional major titles to the winners of the three previous Players Championship events, stating the tournament "is a members-only event, includes all of the elements of a major." This gave Bohn three majors among his 35 PBA Tour titles. Bohn is a four-time winner of the PBA's Steve Nagy Sportsmanship award. Active in promoting youth bowling, Bohn has established an annual Parker Bohn III Youth Scholarship Tournament in Howell, New Jersey. Since its inception in 1999, the tournament has awarded over $50,000 to junior bowlers in the form of college scholarship funding. Parker won the PBA's first Tony Reyes Community Service Award for the 2012–13 season. In addition to his PBA Tour titles, Bohn III has won 25 PBA Regional titles, plus two European Bowling Tour titles that were not considered PBA titles: the 2013 BNC Bratislava Open and the 2016 Brunswick Ballmaster Open, held in Helsinki, Finland.

Rootletin

Rootletin known as ciliary rootlet coiled-coil protein is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CROCC gene. Rootletin is a component of the ciliary rootlet, together with CEP68 and CEP250, is required for centrosome cohesion. Rootletin is an important protein in the ciliary rootlet, particular for the structure and can be considered an important protein in mitosis as it is a centrosome linker; this protein forms part of the ciliary rootlet structure. It helps to contribute to the centrosome cohesion before mitosis. Expression of rooletin leads to the formation of fibrous protein; this protein is part of the structure of a ciliary rootlet. This cytoskeletal-like structure starts from the basal body at one end of the cilium and extends towards nucleus, its molecular structure consists of a globular head domain and a tail domain made up of coiled-coil structures. A large coiled-coil protein, C-Nap1, is a docking site for the fibrous tether to proximal ends of centrioles which Rootletin physically interacts with.

Furthermore, Rootletin is phosphorylated by Nek2 kinase

Fifth-week event

A fifth week event is a novelty comic book promotion. Comic publishers schedule releases in four-week cycles. In the event that a month has more than four weeks, publishers sell unusual comics to fill in the scheduling gap; the fifth week event has been discontinued since longer crossovers, such as Blackest Night, run for months at a time, requiring more tie-ins and fewer simultaneous crossovers. In the 1990s, DC Comics published 4 monthly Superman titles; the interlocking stories created a weekly narrative that continued throughout the year, but that publishing schedule accounted for only 48 out of the 52 weeks per year. With 4 months each year containing a fifth Wednesday DC introduced a fifth Superman title, Superman: The Man of Tomorrow to fill in the skip weeks; the first skip week events were linked to a range of existing titles with a shared theme: New Year's Evil focused on villains and GirlFrenzy on female characters from the participating titles. In the midst of the DC vs. Marvel crossover, the two companies combined their universes creating new titles and characters for Amalgam Comics.

DC created its own alternate universe with in-name-only versions of their major characters with Tangent Comics. Skip week events focused a story sometimes with a framing story or related to a specific title, as time went on the comics would be spread over the entire month. A pair of "bookend" issues would tell the beginning and end of the framing story. Many skip weeks would feature a consistent cover design across all books in the event. New Year's Evil used black backgrounds, menacing profiles of the main characters, an elaborate red border design at the top. Tangent Comics made a special effort to break conventions, using a fifth ink color to create a silver background, placing the titles in the middle of the cover instead of at the top, adding descriptive information such as book dimensions and indicia in multiple languages that might be mandated by an alternate universe's publishing industry. While Vertigo released a number of comics in the fifth week of December 1999, under the title V2K, some of them were the first issues of limited series, rather than one-shots for that month.

The Sandman (book)

The Sandman is a children's book written by Ralph Fletcher and illustrated by Richard Cowdrey. It was first published in 2008 by Henry Company. Tor is an inches tall man, he discovers a dragon scale while walking in the woods. He learns, he travels sprinkling the sand into the eyes of sleepless children. Ian Chipman in his review for Booklist said "Fletcher’s spin on the classic character responsible for leaden lids is helped along by Cowdry’s quaint hued artwork." He described the book as "charming and comforting bedtime tale." Kirkus Reviews said "Fletcher's fantasy narrative fleshes out the familiar trope by combining worlds of fairy-tale-forest settings with average household bedtime environments. Cowdrey's colored acrylics of flora, one frightfully greenish and nostril-smoking dragon, workshop scenes and angelically dozing children alternate with black-and-white images of a cherubic dimple-chinned bald and white mustachioed tiny gentleman hard at work." Lauralyn Persson in her review for School Library Journal said "Fletcher's smoothly written story flows in a plausible way and is beautifully served by Cowdrey's vibrant acrylic paintings.

All in all, this is a compelling story with pictures that add drama and atmosphere." Ralph Fletcher's website Richard Cowdrey's website
