Yungay District

Yungay district is a district in the Province of Yungay in the Ancash region, Peru. It was created by law on October 28, 1904; the Cordillera Blanca traverses the province. Waskaran, the highest elevation of Peru, lies on the border to the Carhuaz Province. Other mountains are listed below: The district was struck and many towns and villages were destroyed by the earthquake and alluvium on May 31, 1970 as can be seen from the Callejón de Huaylas towards the north. Huge amounts of rock and soil cover houses and temples of old towns like Ranrahirca and Yungay. In Yungay alone 70 thousand inhabitants died and are covered by the rocks and soil. 9° 8'21.38"S, 77°44'43.88"W Towards the west, at the cemetery at the back of the hill, a big sculpture of Jesus is located. Towards the East, the snow summit of the Huascarán appears. Huascarán was one of the sources of rock and snow that covered the town of Yungay in the 1970 earthquake. Continuing towards the north, in a space defended by the hills against possible new alluviums that might come from the Huascarán mountain, the new city of Yungay has been raised.

In the surroundings, the Pan de Azúcar hill raises, where in 1839 the Battle of Yungay took place, next to the stream of the Ancash river. In this place, the Peru-Bolivian Confederation was concluded, after the Bolivian general Santa Cruz's forces were defeated; this battle gave the name of Ancash to this region, called Huaylas.. The zone of Yungay, that has a moderate climate, is propitious for hunting tarucas, pigeons and ducks, as well as for the fishing of trout. In Tingua, a suspension bridge that crosses the Santa river is raised, with a length of 75 m; this bridge and an access road join Tingua with the communities of Shupluy and Ecash. The people in the district are indigenous citizens of Quechua descent. Quechua is the language which the majority of the population learnt to speak in childhood, 42.80% of the residents started speaking using the Spanish language. Llankanuku Lakes

Glycoside hydrolase family 67

In molecular biology, glycoside hydrolase family 67 is a family of glycoside hydrolases. Glycoside hydrolases EC 3.2.1. are a widespread group of enzymes that hydrolyse the glycosidic bond between two or more carbohydrates, or between a carbohydrate and a non-carbohydrate moiety. A classification system for glycoside hydrolases, based on sequence similarity, has led to the definition of >100 different families. This classification is available on the CAZy web site, discussed at CAZypedia, an online encyclopedia of carbohydrate active enzymes. Glycoside hydrolase family 67 includes alpha-glucuronidases, these are components of an ensemble of enzymes central to the recycling of photosynthetic biomass, remove the alpha-1,2 linked 4-O-methyl glucuronic acid from xylans. Members of this family consist of three structural domains. Deletion mutants of alpha-glucuronidase from Bacillus stearothermophilus have indicated that the central region is responsible for the catalytic activity. Within this central domain, the invariant Glu and Asp are thought to form the catalytic centre.

The C-terminal region of alpha-glucuronidase is alpha-helical. It wraps around the catalytic domain, making additional interactions both with the N-terminal domain of its parent monomer and forming the majority of the dimer-surface with the equivalent C-terminal domain of the other monomer of the dimer

Karin Kallmaker

Karin Kallmaker is an American author of lesbian fiction whose works include those written under the name Laura Adams. Her writings span lesbian romance, lesbian erotica, lesbian science-fiction/fantasy. Dubbed the Queen of Lesbian Romance, she publishes in the lesbian market as a matter of personal choice. Kallmaker was born in 1960 in California, she graduated from California State University, Sacramento with a B. A. in Business Administration in 1988. Considered a master at characterization, Kallmaker's work reflects the interior lives of her lesbian heroines, set in romance novel situations. "Credible and spirited" protagonists face contemporary social challenges, resulting in a body of work that reflects lesbian community history since her debut novel, In Every Port, which included events surrounding the assassination of Harvey Milk in 1978. Her second novel, established her as a writer with "a sure sense of the power of language and of the power of eros." Her typical heroine is "the kind of indestructible and talented woman we all dream we could be -- much like Molly Bolt in Rubyfruit Jungle."

In spite of publishing the majority of her work as lesbian romance genre fiction, "there's something original to every book", featuring "complex stories of believable, vulnerable lesbian characters who grow strong through facing tough issues." Influenced by mentor Katherine V. Forrest as an emerging writer, her fifth novel, Painted Moon, was hailed as "the next Curious Wine," and remains one of her most popular novels, fifteen years after its original publication. Crediting Jane Austen as a foremother of the modern novel, Kallmaker's Just Like That is a lesbian version of Pride and Prejudice. Another homage-by-genre-twist novel is Christabel, inspired by the Samuel Taylor Coleridge poem of the same name. Written under the pen name Laura Adams, Kallmaker dedicated the novel to Jeannette Howard Foster for her examination of the lesbian subtext, moving her to retell the story with the women triumphant, her ability to push the boundaries of genre fiction while maintaining her popularity is epitomized by Maybe Next Time, "an engrossing, compelling story of redemption and surviving," which won a Lambda Literary Award.

Her novels include the Golden Crown Literary Society and Lambda Literary Foundation award-winning 18th & Castro, In Deep Waters 1/2, Just Like That, The Kiss that Counted, Maybe Next Time, Sugar. Her writing career began with one of the shaping publishers of lesbian fiction. In 2001, she placed her work as Laura Adams with Bella Books. After Naiad Press closed in 2003, she moved the remainder of her lesbian romance titles to Bella. In 2008, she joined Bella Books as the press's first Editorial Director, retired from that position in 2015. A "cleverly inventive" short story writer, she has published more than five dozen short stories in collections from her own publishers, as well as anthologies from publishers such as Alyson, Regal Crest Enterprises, Circlet Press, Bold Strokes Books, Haworth Press; the genre of her stories go from vanilla romance to explicit erotica. In a May 2006 interview with Q Syndicate, Kallmaker discussed some of the resistance she faced to the idea that a romance writer could write erotica.

"... Part of my goal for writing erotica was to decriminalize lesbian sex for lesbians those in committed couples and those who don't live in an urban Mecca with an out-and-proud sex-positive attitude." Volumes containing her lesbian erotica short stories have won awards from the Golden Crown Literary Society and the Lambda Literary Foundation. Published essays have dealt with issues of identity for the author. In 1993, she wrote "When I Grow Up I Want to Be a Lesbian" for Multicultural America: A Resource Book for Teachers of Humanities and American Studies, which explored the disconnect between different stages of coming out, when she first observed the community but did not yet feel a member of it. Ten years after the birth of her two children: "For many years I was, by all outward appearances, a suburban married woman." In 2007, in Love, Castro Street, her essay "Where One Size Fits All" concluded the award-winning anthology with "No matter what my clothing of the day might be, from a shy writer offering to sign her first novel to a seeming soccer mom with two kids in tow, Castro Street has never refused me entry.

The potholes, the crowds, the scary traffic are still there, but somehow the street is larger than ever." As Laura Adams, Kallmaker has written lesbian science-fiction and fantasy titles that include a "chilling brush with reality." Though the novels include strong lesbian romance storylines, their themes revolve around the power of lesbian community and spirituality. Kallmaker has 18 years of experience with non-profit financial management. Workplaces, such as an association of home and health care service providers to the elderly, a private lender investing in projects to benefit low income people, a half-year at an oil refinery, have provided background for many of her novels.
