This goddess was a ` nurse', she was the female counterpart of Shai, "destiny", who represented the positive destiny of the child. Along with this, Renenutet was the Thermouthis, or Hermouthis in Greek, she was the protecter of the royal office and power. Sometimes, as the goddess of nourishment, Renenutet was seen as having Sobek, he was represented as the Nile River, the annual flooding of which deposited the fertile silt that enabled abundant harvests. The temple of Medinet Madi is dedicated to both Renenutet, it is a small and decorated building in the Faiyum. More Renenutet was seen as the mother of Nehebkau, represented as a snake also; when considered the mother of Nehebkau, Renenutet was seen as having a husband, who represented the Earth.

Cetopsidae

The Cetopsidae are a small family of catfishes called the whale catfishes. This family contains five genera divided into two subfamilies and Helogeneinae. Helogeneinae was a family-level group, but now it has been reclassified as a subfamily of Cetopsidae; this subfamily contains four species in the genus Helogenes. The subfamily Cetopsinae contains four genera. Cetopsidium contains six species, Cetopsis contains 21 species, Denticetopsis contains seven species, Paracetopsis contains three species; the genera have been changed as recenetly as 2005 with the genera Bathycetopsis and Pseudocetopsis set in synonymy with Cetopsis and the description of the new genus Cetopsidium. Cetopsidium is the sister group to the rest of Cetopsinae. Denticetopsis forms the next sister group to the remaining cetopsine genera; the tribes Cetopsidiini and Cetopsini are erected for the cetopsine genera. Cetopsids have a wide distribution in South America. Latitudinally, cetopsines extend from northern Colombia to central Argentina.

They inhabit major habitats such as the Orinoco River, Amazon River, the Guyanas. In trans-Andean South America, cetopsines are found along the Pacific slope from the Jurubidá River of Colombia south to the Tumbes River of northern Peru. Along the Caribbean trans-Andean versant, species of cetopsines occur from the Sinú River of northwestern Colombia east to the Lake Maracaibo basin of northwestern Venezuela. East of the Andean Cordilleras, the Cetopsinae occur in the Aroa and Yaracuy River basins along the Caribbean versant of northern Venezuela, through the Orinoco River system and the coastal rivers of the Guianas, south through the Amazon basin to the southern portions of the Río de la Plata basin. Cetopsines occur in the Juquiá River basin of the state of São Paulo and the São Francisco River basin of eastern Brazil. Helogenes, the single genus of Helogeneinae, occurs through much of the Amazon basin, the southern portions of the Orinoco River basin, the coastal rivers of the Guianas, at least the lower portions of the Tocantins River.

The family Cetopsidae includes species of small- to medium-sized catfishes which share an anal fin with a long base, the lack of nasal barbels, a lack of dorsal and pectoral fin spines. In Cetopsinae, the swim bladder is reduced and is enclosed in a bony capsule. Cetopsines lack an adipose fin. Many species are characterized by small eyes obscured by a thick, overlying integument that make them appear blind; the dorsal and pectoral fins lack spines, except in Cetopsidium and Denticetopsis. In most species of Cetopsis and Cetopsidium, mature males have a convex margin to their anal fin and elongated distal filaments of the dorsal and pectoral fin spines; the maximum length of this family is about 26 cm SL in Cetopsinae. Cetopsidium species are smaller in body size than Cetopsis; the maximum length in Helogenes species is 7 cm. Most cetopsids feed on insects. C. candiru and C. coecutiens are well known to have voracious appetites. These fish will attack carrion, other living fish while in gillnets, people.

Some people erroneously believe these fish are parasitic like parasitic catfishes

Mercedes-Benz W191

The Mercedes-Benz 170 S is a luxury car, produced by Mercedes-Benz from 1949 until 1955 in various gasoline and diesel powered forms. It was offered with a 1.8 liter version of the 1.7 liter inline-four cylinder M136 engine used in the smaller production type 170 V. It was the first Mercedes-Benz to carry in its name the suffix “S” (for Sonder modell denoting a superior level of comfort and quality; as such, its intended market was successful business owners and company directors. The 170 S was released in May 1949 sharing the chassis number of the W136 170 V, resembled it. However, in several respects it was more directly a development from the six cylinder Mercedes-Benz 230 which the company had produced, albeit in small numbers, between 1938 and 1943; the first 170 S upgrade occurred in January 1952, being further distanced from the 170 V with its own chassis number W191. Mercedes' introduction a year earlier of the 2.2 liter six cylinder M180 engined Mercedes-Benz W187 luxury 220 model, positioned between the 170 S and the company flagship 3.0 liter Mercedes-Benz W186 Adenauer tourers undermined the four cylinder 170 S's luxury niche.

With the arrival of the all-new 1.8 liter Mercedes-Benz W120 180 "Ponton" in 1953 the 170 S was discontinued and a 170 S-V employing the 170 S' larger engine but the 170 V's smaller body was introduced. It ceased production in 1955; the Mercedes-Benz 170 S which appeared in May 1949 was 170 mm longer, 104 mm wider, better appointed than the 170 V. The 170 V’s 1697 cc M136 four cylinder gasoline/petrol engine was enlarged to 1767cc, providing a maximum output of 52 HP compared to the smaller car’s 38 HP. Performance was correspondingly enhanced, with a stated top speed of 122 km/h, it shared the four speed all-synchromesh transmission of the 170 V. The front wheels were attached using coil springs and double wishbones with a stabilizer bar, as opposed to the simple lateral leaf-spring arrangement on the 170 V. Since the war the only version of the Mercedes-Benz 170 V available to the public had come with a four-door sedan/saloon body. With the 170 S the manufacturer now recalled some of the wider range of bodies offered on the 170 V before the war, adding a 2-seat “Cabriolet A” and a 4-seat “Cabriolet B”.

Although the 170 S was promoted as a car for company directors, the soubriquet of “first S-Class Mercedes-Benz” which began to be applied to it more than twenty years following the launch of the manufacturer’s W 116 is not one that would have been used or recognized in the 1950s. A year after the introduction of the 170 S, its M136 was installed in the 170 V. However, both the compression ratio and the carburettor differed, so that the power advantage for the 170 S was reduced – from a difference of 14 PS to one of 7 PS – and not eliminated. In January 1952 the Mercedes-Benz 170 Sb replaced the 170 S model; the car now received a works number of its own, becoming known internally as the “Mercedes-Benz W 191”. Both cabriolet versions had been withdrawn in November 1951, cabriolet buyers now being catered for by the cabriolet versions of the 6-cylinder Mercedes-Benz W187 220 model; the 170 Sb was therefore available only with a four-door sedan/saloon body. Other changes included in the 1952 upgrade included the replacement of the floor-mounted gear lever with a fashionable column mounted gear lever.

There was now a starter button on the dashboard and the heater was improved. Under the bonnet/hood the camshaft was now driven via a chain rather than via gear cogs, a hypoid differential was fitted and the rear track was increased by 15 mm. January 1952 saw the launch of a diesel powered version of the 170 S, sold as the Mercedes-Benz 170 DS and carrying, like its gasoline/petrol powered sibling, the works designation „W 191“, it shared the 40 HP (29 kW. In 1952 diesel powered passenger cars were still much a novelty in Germany; the lumpy engine note and reduced performance of the diesel car were at variance with the up-market image of the 170 S, but no doubt both cost conscious company directors and upmarket taxi operators appreciated the >25% improvement in fuel consumption using a fuel which, on account of the tax rates applied, was provided at a “friendly” price in Germany. With the appearance of the new 1.8 liter Mercedes-Benz 180 "Ponton" in 1953, the 170 S model appeared old fashioned.

The 170 V would be delisted in September 1953, in July 1953 the manufacturer replaced the existing 170 S with the reduced specification 170 S-V. The car that resulted combined the larger body from the 170 S with the less powerful 45 HP engine that had powered the 170 V; the vehicle provided reduced performance but at a reduced price, while salesmen steered more prosperous buyers to the new 180. The diesel powered 170 S continued to be sold, now branded as the 170 S-D; the internal “W 191” designation which had distinguished the previous 170 S was removed, the 170 S manufactured from 1953 returned to the “W 136” designation that they had shared till the end of 1951. In September 1955 the Mercedes-Benz 170 S-V was withdrawn from production. There was no direct replacement. By now economic recovery was setting in and Mercedes-Benz hoped to persuade company directors to buy a six-cylinder Mercedes-Benz. In its final version, more than 80% of the cars sold were diesel powered, suggesting that for the most part cost conscious taxi operators had replaced status conscious executives as 170 S customers Oswald, Werner.
