Richardson played college basketball for DePaul University where he averaged 17.9 points and 10.2 rebounds per game in two seasons. He became the only player in school history to have 1,000+ points, 500+ rebounds and 100+ three-point field goals; as a freshman, he earned both the Conference USA Player of the Freshman of the Year.

Richardson declared for the NBA draft after his sophomore year in 2000. Richardson was drafted by the Los Angeles Clippers with the 18th pick of the 2000 NBA draft, he was selected after fellow Clippers Darius Keyon Dooling. Richardson would star in a documentary with Miles entitled The Youngest Guns which chronicled their first three seasons in the NBA with the Clippers. Richardson spent four seasons with the Clippers before becoming a free agent. In 2004, Richardson signed with the Phoenix Suns as a free agent; the 2004–05 season was a big one for not only Richardson, but the Suns as well. He set a new Suns single-season record for three-point field goals, eclipsing the previous record of 199 set by Dan Majerle, he finished the season with a league-leading 631 three-point attempts, 226 three-point field goals, co-leading the league with Kyle Korver.

The Suns finished the regular season with 20 losses. He made his playoff debut with the Suns in 2005 who would lose to the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals. Richardson was traded from the Suns, along with 2005 draft pick Nate Robinson, to the New York Knicks in exchange for Kurt Thomas and Dijon Thompson in the offseason, his first three seasons in New York were hampered by nagging injuries—the most serious being a chronic back condition—which limited him to 55, 49 and 65 games played respectively. His injury situation stabilized during the 2008–2009 season, when he remained healthy enough to appear in all but seven games; this does not include two additional DNP-CDs.

He did appear in five playoff games, hitting two three-pointers in New York's 26-point blowout win of the Pacers in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, they ended up being the last points of his NBA career. On July 10, 2013, Richardson was part of a trade package to the Toronto Raptors, along with center Marcus Camby, forward Steve Novak, a first-round draft pick in 2016, two second-round draft picks in 2014 and 2017, in exchange for forward Andrea Bargnani.

On September 3, 2013, Richardson was waived by the Raptors. On August 7, 2014, it was announced that Richardson was named the director of player development for the Detroit Pistons.

Focke-Wulf Fw 62

The Focke-Wulf Fw 62 was a reconnaissance floatplane and built by Focke-Wulf for use by Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine. Only four were built. In 1936 the RLM, the German ministry of aviation, formulated a requirement for a shipboard seaplane for reconnaissance missions, to replace the Heinkel He 114; the aircraft was to be light, with a maximum weight of 2.5 tons and a crew of one or two, suitable for catapult launching. Equipment and armament were to be kept to a minimum. Focke-Wulf competed with a conventional biplane design; the Fw 62 was of mixed construction and powered by a 705 kW BMW 132K radial engine. The engine was cowled and drove a two-bladed propeller; the biplane wings featured two N-type struts on each side. They could be folded for shipboard storage; each wing had an aileron. First flown on 23 October 1937 the Fw 62 V1 twin floats, while the Fw 62 V2 had a large central float and smaller outboard stabilising floats. Official tests began in Travemünde in the summer of 1937; the Fw 62 was a capable aircraft and well liked by test pilots, but the competing Arado Ar 196 monoplane was both conceptually and structurally more modern, was chosen for production.

Riverine rabbit

The riverine rabbit known as the bushman rabbit or bushman hare, is one of the most endangered mammals in the world, with only around 500 living adults, 1500 overall. This rabbit has an limited distribution area, found only in the central and southern regions of the Karoo Desert of South Africa's Northern Cape Province, it is the only member of the genus Bunolagus because of unique traits that separate it from the other lagomorphs in the genus Lepus. There is still debate between taxonomists over its classification. Many tests and karyotypic analysis has been performed on hares from the genus Lepus to compare the riverine rabbit to others that are classified as true hares, they have a diet which consists of plants and vegetation, but their usual food sources are being diminished, causing a scarcity for their population. This food loss is connected to other problems such as with forming burrows. A unique aspect of its biology is; this contributes to how it is classified as critically endangered, the most severe classification available.

Other unique traits include being nocturnal, producing two different types of droppings. There are conservation plans being enacted to help with its decreasing population and habitat; the riverine rabbit is native to the Karoo desert in South Africa. It has a general appearance, similar to most rabbits, but the ears and body are longer, it has a black stripe running from the corner of the mouth over the cheek, a white ring around each eye. It has a brown woolly tail, cream or greyish-coloured fur on its belly and throat, a broad, club-like hind foot, it has a dental formula of 2/1, 0/0, 3/2, 3/3, with a total of 28 teeth. Its tail is pale brown with a tinge of black toward the tip, its coat is soft and silky and its limb are short and furred. Male riverine rabbit weigh 1.5 kilogram while females weigh about 1.8 kilograms. The taxonomic status of the riverine rabbit is controversial among scientists; this rabbit has specific qualities that are different from other Lepus species, resulting in the taxon generic separation.

However, this rabbit still has some external characteristics and cranial conformation has caused the controversy between taxonomists. Eleven different Lepus species had a karyotypic analysis performed on them and from this tests it was learned that all hares have a similar G-banded karyotype; this study was done to establish whether the “karyotypic affinities of B. monticularis lay with representatives of the genus Lepus “or if the evidence found gives reason for this species to be in a genus distinct from that of true hares. The riverine rabbit's scientific name is Bunolagus monticularis, it is in the phylum Chordata, the class Mammalia, the order Lagomorpha, the family Leporidae. Some common names referring to it are the bushman rabbit; this rabbit has less common names such as boshaas and vleihaas. These names arose from the habitats they are based on how these were moist and dense, their broad hind paws which are furred underfoot were referred to as doekvoetjie. It is found in only a few places in the Karoo Desert of South Africa's Northern Cape province.

None of them are protected area as of 2017. As its name suggests, the Riverine rabbit prefers to occupy river basins and particular shrubland, it feeds on the dense shrubland and the soft soil allows for it to create vast burrows and dens for protection, brooding young, thermoregulation. The riverine rabbit lives in dense growth along the seasonal rivers in the central semi-arid Karoo region of South Africa, its habitat regions are tropical and terrestrial while its terrestrial biomes are desert or dune and scrub forest. Two of the most common plants in its habitat are Salsola glabrescens and Lycium spp.. They appear and live in riverine vegetation on alluvial soils adjacent to seasonal rivers, though studies have found this habitat to be sixty-seven percent fragmented in certain areas; the habitat is decreasing in size, contributing to this species being classified as endangered. The primary reason for the decline in habitats is due to livestock farming. Major threats to this species comes from degradation of habitat.

Over the last hundred years, over two-thirds of their habitat has been lost. Today only five hundred mature riverine rabbits are estimated to be living in the wild. Removal of the natural vegetation along the rivers and streams prevent the rabbits from being able to construct stable breeding burrows; this is because of the loss of the soft alluvial top soils, which are necessary for the construction of these. Another cause of damage and loss to their habitats comes from overgrazing of domestic herbivores, which causes degradation and fragmentation of the land. Without suitable habitat they have a lower rate of survival; the remaining habitat is thought to only be able to support 1,435 rabbits. This displays a main cause for its endangerment, that there is little habitat left that can support it; the riverine rabbit is hunted by black eagles. However, it is capable of jumping over one meter high bushes. To escape predation, it remains nocturnal, spending the day resting in a form, a shallow scrape made in the soil under a Karoo bush.

The riverine rabbit is predominantly known for being a “browser”. They eat; this includes salt-loving plants such as lycium. They sometimes eat grass depending on. Aside from their conventional food intake, they al
