Hey! Good Lookin' (album)

Hey! Good Lookin' is an album by blues musician Bo Diddley released on the Checker label in 1965. AllMusic reviewer Bruce Eder stated "One of Bo Diddley's least-known albums... at the point when none of his records were selling in America. With an edgy, raunchy sound and modern record techniques and band come up with a solid'60s version of his original sound; the title track is a real jewel... Other tracks sound like they'd have worked well as part of extended jams of the kind that Diddley did on-stage... There is some filler here... but that can be forgiven in view of the strength of the rest of the material.". All tracks credited to Ellas McDaniel except where noted "Hey, Good Lookin'" – 2:55 "Mush Mouth Millie" – 2:03 "Bo Diddley's Hootenanny" – 2:21 "London Stomp" – 2:15 "Let's Walk Awhile" – 2:38 "Rooster Stew" – 2:18 "La, La, La" – 2:30 "Yeah, Yeah" – 2:30 "Rain Man" – 3:15 "I Wonder Why" – 3:35 "Brother Bear" – 2:20 "Mummy Walk" – 2:10 Bo Diddley – vocals, guitar The Dutchess – guitar Lafayette Leakepiano Chester Lindsey – bass Edell Robertson – drums Jerome Green – maracas The Bo-Ettes – vocals

Tailed frog

The tailed frogs are two species of frogs in the genus Ascaphus, the only taxon in the family Ascaphidae. The "tail" in the name is an extension of the male cloaca; the tail is one of two distinctive anatomical features adapting the species to life in fast-flowing streams. These are the only North American frog species, its scientific names means ‘without a spade’, from the privative prefix a- and the Ancient Greek skaphís, referring to the metatarsal spade, which these frogs do not have. Until 2001, the genus was believed to be monotypic, the single species being the tailed frog. However, in that year, Nielson and Sullivan published evidence that promoted the Rocky Mountain tailed frog from a subspecies to its own species. Since the former species has been formally called coastal tailed frog; the existence of the visible "tail" appendage makes this frog family distinct from all other frogs. Thus, its wider classification is difficult, it is classified in the Archaeobatrachia suborder of ancient frogs, though some say it should be a sister to all other frogs.

The "tail" is found only in males, is part of the cloaca, used to insert sperm into the female during mating. This anatomical feature improves breeding success by minimizing loss of sperm in the turbulent, fast-flowing streams inhabited by this species. Thus, the tailed frogs exhibit internal fertilisation, rather than the external fertilisation found in other frogs; these frogs are primitive in having a greater number of vertebrae than other frogs, in lacking the ability to vocalise, in possessing free ribs. They are small — around 2.5 to 5.0 cm long — and are found in steep, fast-flowing streams in Montana, Washington and northern California in the northwest United States, southeastern British Columbia. The tailed frogs share certain characteristics with the Leiopelma, a genus of primitive frogs native to New Zealand, with which they may be phylogenetic sister taxa; the prehistoric Vieraella belongs to the tailed frog family. The habitat of the tailed frog is fast-moving streams with cobblestone bottoms.

They are aquatic, but adults may emerge during cool, wet conditions to forage terrestrially. Breeding season lasts from May through September, females deposit their eggs in strings under rocks in fast-moving streams. Larvae take one to four years to metamorphose in the fast-moving mountain streams. Thermal tolerance range in adults is exceptionally low relative to other North American anurans. Adults have been observed to exhibit extreme philopatry, however and migrational habits in Ascaphus have not been well documented. Adults forage terrestrially along stream banks, but occasionally feed underwater. A wide variety of food items is taken, including both aquatic and terrestrial larval and adult insects, other arthropods, snails. Tadpoles desmids. Large quantities of conifer pollen are consumed seasonally by tadpoles. During the day, adults seek cover under submerged substrates in the stream, or under similar surface objects close to the stream. Individuals have been found in crevices in spray-drenched cliff walls near waterfalls.

During winter, individuals are less active inland, appear to retreat beneath large logs and boulders. Tadpoles require cool streams with smooth-surfaced stones with a minimum diameter of 55 mm. Tadpoles spend most of their time attached to such substrates by a large oral sucker; the large, sucker-like mouth parts of the tadpoles are a second distinctive feature of the species, enabling survival in turbulent water unsuitable for other frogs. They prefer swiftly flowing water. Gissi, Carmela. "Mitochondrial phylogeny of Anura: A case study of congruent phylogenetic reconstruction using amino acid and nucleotide characters".

Greenock Blitz

The Greenock Blitz is the name given to two nights of intensive bombing of the town of Greenock, Scotland by the Nazi German Luftwaffe during the Second World War. The raids over the nights of the 6 and 7 May 1941 targeted the shipyards and berthed ships around the town; the brunt of the bombing fell on residential areas. Over the two nights, 271 people were over 10,200 injured. From a total of 180,000 homes nearly 25,000 suffered 5,000 were destroyed outright; the attack began around midnight on 6 May. Bombs fell all over surrounding area. Many civilians fled to the tunnels in the east end of the town reducing casualties the next night. Air raid sirens at 12:15am on 7 May marked the beginning of a second night of bombing. Incendiary bombs were dropped around the perimeter of the town; the second wave attacked the east end and centre of Greenock. The final wave came around 2am. At 3:30am the "All Clear" sounded but a large area of the town was in flames; the sugar refineries and foundries were all extensively damaged, the Municipal Buildings complex was destroyed, several churches were left as burnt out shells.

However, damage to the shipyards was minimal. An Air Ministry decoy starfish site behind Loch Thom prevented the number of casualties being higher; the decoy was lit on the second night of the blitz. It consisted of a large number of mounds of combustible materials scattered over a wide area of the moorland to simulate a burning urban area. Scores of large bomb craters were found after an inspection of the decoy after the air raids. Three local firemen were awarded the George Medal - Firemaster A. S. Pratten, Sub-Station Officer William Neill and Fireman James Berry - who entered a burning building and at great personal risk managed to control a blaze which threatened to destroy a quantity of material essential to the war effort.
