Wahta Mohawks

The Wahta Mohawks are a Mohawk First Nation in Ontario. The Wahta Mohawk Territory is their territory in the District Municipality of Muskoka, Canada near Bala, it is bounded on the west by Highway 400, a major north-south artery in the province. About one-third of the 831 citizens of Wahta Mohawk Territory live in the community of Wahta, along District Road 38, another third live within 100 km, the remainder live elsewhere; the land is made up of forest and lakes typical of the rugged Canadian Shield. It is used for hunting and fishing by Mohawk from the reserves of Kanesatake and Kahnewake Quebec, who share access to this territory, it was the site of the now defunct Iroquois Cranberry Growers, Ontario's largest cranberry farm. The farm was shuttered because of economic reasons. "Wáhta" is the Mohawk term for one of their important ceremonies. Wahta Mohawk Territory was founded in 1881 after the Sulpician Order bought land here for Mohawk from the community of Kanesatake, where there had been political and religious strife over land use rights.

About one-fifth of the Mohawk from that community moved to the new area. They share the Indian River Indian Reserve with the Chippewas of Rama First Nation. Due to a Mohawk land-claim dispute with the provincial government, the Wahta Territory known as the Gibson Reserve, prevented completion of a freeway through its land. There was an eight-kilometre gap in Highway 400, where the roadway remained a two-lane highway for several years after construction of the freeway was completed further north. In 2003 the government and the Mohawk First Nation reached an agreement allowing freeway construction through the reserve lands. Begun in 2004, construction was completed in 2008; as of March, 2018: Population: 156 Area: 61.17 Density: 2.55Out of the total 831 Wahta Mohawks, 675 live off-reserve.

He served as a congressman from New York from 1923 until his death in 1938, he is known as one of the authors of the Davis–Bacon Act of 1931, which regulates wages for employees on federal projects. Born in Jamaica Plain, the son of Martha Waldron Cowdin and future Secretary of State Robert Bacon, he received a common school education as a child, he went on to graduate from Harvard University in 1907 and from Harvard Law School in 1910. After graduation, Bacon was employed at the United States Treasury Department, where he worked until 1911, he moved to Old Westbury. Bacon attended the business men's training camp at Plattsburgh in 1915, served on the Texas border with the New York National Guard in 1916 at the Texas border. During World War I, he served with the Field Artillery, United States Army from April 24, 1917, to January 2, 1919, he was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal. Commissioned in the United States Officers' Reserve Corps with the rank of lieutenant colonel in 1919, he was promoted to colonel in January 1923 and served until his death.

Bacon was a delegate to the Republican National Convention in Chicago, Illinois in 1920. In 1922, after Frederick C. Hicks declines to seek another term, Bacon stepped into the race, his opponent was fellow Long Islander, S. A. Warner Baltazzi, whom he defeated in the fall, he entered Congress as a “wet”, someone who did not support prohibition while still continuing his military career in the Officers' Reserve Corps during his years in the House of Representatives. He faced no significant opposition over his career with the 1932 election being his greatest challenge; that year, he faced Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney another wealthy member of Long Island society in a race that pitted Bacon against the landslide victory of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Both men belonged to many of the same private clubs and the race became bitter, with Bacon prevailing. Bacon's longest lasting political achievement may be the Davis–Bacon Act of 1931 which remain in force, with amendments. Bacon introduced similar legislation for many years and succeeded in securing passage after workings on depression-era federal spending projects found that jobs were going to cheaper workers from other areas.

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light is an action-adventure game developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Android and, iOS through digital distribution. It is part of the Tomb Raider series, but unlike previous games, the game does not carry the Tomb Raider brand and has a heavy emphasis on cooperative gameplay. In multiplayer, players take the role as either Lara Croft or a 2,000-year-old Mayan warrior named Totec, they must work together in order to retrieve the Mirror of Smoke. A single-player campaign mode is available that does not include the non-playable character AI following or helping Lara. In the United States and United Kingdom, Guardian of Light was released for the Xbox Live Arcade on 18 August 2010. Though local cooperative was available at the initial release for all versions, online cooperative was added. In North America, on 16 December 2010, the video game was released for iOS devices which included cooperative with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth options.

The first downloadable content map pack was released for free for a limited time. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light was well received by critics; the Xbox 360 version of the game holds an average score of 85/100 and 86.36% on the game aggregate sites Metacritic and GameRankings, respectively. In September 2010, IGN listed Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light fourteenth in their top twenty-five Xbox Live Arcade titles of all time. Critics felt. Guardian of Light sold 98,000 copies on Xbox Live in its first six weeks, as of 22 August 2013, the game has sold more than 1 million copies on all platforms. A sequel titled Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris was released in 2014 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light was the first game in the series to be published by Square Enix. Unlike previous installments of the series, which were adventure games with a virtual camera viewpoint, The Guardian of Light is a non-linear "arcade-inspired" action game with a fixed isometric camera, similar to Tomb Raider: The Prophecy for Game Boy Advance.

The game features cooperative gameplay, players can take control of either Lara or an ancient Mayan tribesman named Totec. Each playable character possesses unique skills. Like with some previous installments, Lara retains her dual pistols with infinite ammunition and a grappling hook, which she is able to use to cross gaps and which Totec can tightrope walk across. Totec carries spears which can be used both as a weapon and on the environment, for Lara to climb on. Both characters carry unlimited "bombs" that can be detonated. Tombs can be explored and some have "booby-trap puzzles" to solve; the game does not have any loading screens. The Guardian of Light may be played with a single player, a second player may join at any time, whether online or locally. In the single-player campaign the only playable character is Lara. Puzzles and parts of the map are different. Creative director Daniel Neuberger said that this was because he did not want the player to get frustrated by having to rely on AI.

The campaign features eight to ten hours of gameplay. In multiplayer, a first in the series, gameplay has an emphasis on teamwork. Lara is able to use Totec's shield as a portable platform, she may balance on spears that Totec throws in the wall, but Totec cannot, as they are not able to hold his weight. Totec can tightrope walk using Lara's grappling rope; as the game progresses, Totec learns from Lara. When enemies are killed, point scores appear above their bodies—red or blue—depending on whether Lara or Totec scored the kill. There are pick-ups, such as gems, scattered throughout the levels. Receiving high scores in each level rewards the players with new weapons and upgrades. To add competitiveness into the game, there are a limited number of enemies and gems in the world so the players may compete to kill and grab them all; the multiplayer mode features six to eight hours of gameplay, depending on teamwork. The Guardian of Light stars Lara Croft, a fictional English archaeologist and Totec, an ancient Mayan warrior and leader of the Army of Light.

An evil spirit called. Some of his minions that he makes come to life include: giant spiders, demon like creatures, huge trolls. Lara is again voiced by Keeley Hawes and Totec is newly voiced by Jim Cummings. Two thousand years ago in ancient Central America, a battle was waged between Totec, the Guardian of the Light, Xolotl, the Keeper of Darkness. Totec's army was defeated when Xolotl used the mirror of smoke to unleash hordes of ghastly creatures that fought on his behalf. Totec survived the battle and found a way to defeat Xolotl, imprisoning him in the mirror of smoke and becoming its immortal guardian in the form of a stone statue. In the present day, Lara Croft attempts to find the mirror. After a long and dangerous journey she is successful. While examining the mirror, she is caught unaware by a band of mercenaries. Led by the local warlord, they had followed her into the temple. Unknowing or unbelieving of the curse upon the mirror, the warlord takes it from Lara, his reckless handling of the mirror releases Xolotl.

The stone statue of Totec comes to life and warns Lara that Xolotl must be stopped before the light of dawn. Depending on the number of players participa

Hol118 family

The Listeria Phage A118 Holin Family is a group of transporters belonging to the Holin Superfamily V. A representative list of proteins belonging to the Hol118 family can be found in the Transporter Classification Database. Listeria monocytogenes bacteriophage A118 encodes a native holin, hol118, of 93 amino acyl residues exhibiting 3 putative transmembrane segments; when cloned into lambda phage devoid of the S holin, it caused late cell lysis, beginning 80 min. after induction. Hol118 appeared in the cytoplasmic membrane shortly after infection. A second translational start codon at nucleotide position 40 in the gene gives rise to a second gene product of 83 aas lacking TMS-1, it is produced with the full length protein, appears in the membrane, but cannot support lambda lysis and inhibits lysis by Hol118. This dominant inhibitor determines the time of lysis. A homologue is found in L. innocua. The reaction catalyzed is:small molecules + autolysin → small molecules + autolysin Holin Lysin Transporter Classification Database EMBL-EBI, InterPro.
