              From their superficial appearance, no one could possibly say that moths in the family Mnesarchaeidae deserve any special attention. They look like ordinary little brown moths and are found well away from the public gaze. Yet they rank as one of Aotearoa's natural treasures despit...e not even having a common name. This is due to their endemicity-being entirely restricted to New Zealand, without any close relatives overseas. Apart from a batfly, a marine caddisfly family, and four rather obscure little insect families, New Zealand insects at family level are found throughout the world. Endemicity is not a visual character so the appearance of these moths is deceptive. Despite their 'ordinary' appearance, the species described here are on a par with the more familiar examples of endemic families such as our native frogs (Leiopelmatidae), kiwi (Apterygidae), kokako (Callaeatidae), rifleman (Acanthisittidae) and short-tailed bat (Mystacinidae). As a result of this study, this moth family now contains two genera-Mnesarchaea and Mnesarchella. By 1930 seven species were known, thanks largely to the efforts of Alfred Philpott, who worked at the Cawthron Institute in Nelson. This situation persisted until the present revision was undertaken, one outcome of which has been the discovery of a cluster of seven cryptic species-i.e. species which all look deceptively similar. Now it is clear that we have at least 14 species, seven of which are described here for the first time. Unfortunately, accurate identification remains a job for the experts. 'Mnesarchaeids' nearest living relatives are the large Hepialidae or 'ghost moths' which include the porina and puriri moths. These two families comprise the second rung of tongued-moth evolution in the family tree of moths and butterflies-nearly as primitive as you can be if you are a moth with a tongue! The only moths below them on the tree are eriocraniids in the northern hemisphere and the jaw-moths, which have to chew their foo

              Georgie arbeitete sehr lange an einer Karriere als Unterhaltungskunstler, doch die zwielichtige Politik von der dieses Geschaft beherrscht wird, entfremdete ihn von seinem Traum. Zusatzlich wachst er in einer Umgebung auf in der er sich durch sein eigenwilliges Wesen wie ein Frem...der fuhlt, was auch zu vielen Enttauschungen in der Liebe fuhrt. Mysterioese Raben, und das Lauten unsichtbarer Turmglocken, begleiten seine Schicksalsschlage wahrend sich seine Persoenlichkeit auf extreme Weise zu spalten beginnt. Er schreibt seine Gedanken und Erfahrungen in sein GX-Buch - ein Tagebuch das er als Roman veroeffentlichen wollte. Nach dem Tod seiner Mutter, baut er sich ein Versteck am Grab seiner Eltern, von dem aus er eine radikale Rachelektion an der Menschheit vorbereitet. Die wechselnden Farben des Mondes verleihen ihm dabei ubernaturliche Krafte.Ein Mix aus Autobiografie des Schriftstellers und Fantasy-Saga einer tragischen Heldenfigur namens GX-MAN. Ein genreubergreifendes Aufeinandertreffen verschiedener Planeten, Dimensionen, und einer Zeitschleife alternativer Realitaten, wodurch Vergangenheit und Zukunft die Gegenwart in ein Chaos sturzen. Ausserirdische Sekten, Damonen aus der Hoelle, Supersoldaten aus der Zukunft einer parallelen Zeitlinie, und Geheimorganisationen die das Leben auf der Erde kontrollieren. Eine neue apokalyptische Schlacht, zwischen Gut, Boese, und etwas das dazwischen liegt beginnt.

              Carmel-by-the-Sea was established in the early 1900s and has been described as a quaint, European-like village among the trees along Central California's coast. The architectural styles that shaped the downtown character emerged predominantly in the 1920s and 1930s and were mostl...y Northern and Southern European-influenced Romantic Revival styles. The Court of the Golden Bough features Tudor Revival-style buildings, with medieval influence, while many of the larger buildings and hotels downtown are in the Mediterranean and Spanish Revival styles. Fairy-tale storybook designs add to the town's one-of-a-kind charm. A few Western false-front and Craftsman-style buildings from the start of the 20th century, some post-World War II modernist works in the Second and Third Bay Region styles, and ones inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's organic architecture all add to the eclectic mix. Carmel-by-the-Sea has emphasized walking and the outdoors, with its courtyards and passageways, parks, gardens, and landscaping. Take a journey and discover the historic buildings that make up the downtown of this unique seaside town.

              Facharbeit (Schule) aus dem Jahr 2019 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Familie, Frauen, Manner, Sexualitat, Geschlechter, Note: 1,0, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Das Ziel dieser Facharbeit ist es, sich zunachst mit verschiedenen Familienmodellen im Laufe der Zeit auseinander zu setzen ...und zu analysieren, aus welchen Grunden und inwiefern ein Wandel stattgefunden hat und stattfindet. Gerne moechte ich auch Aussenstehenden einen besseren Einblick in die Thematik geben. Ein Fussballtrainer erzahlte mir, dass seine Jungen in der Kabine daruber redeten, wer an welchem Wochenende bei Mama oder Papa lebe. Da stellten sie fest: Bei Paul ist das komisch, da wohnen Mama und Papa zusammen. So stellt sich die Frage: Was ist eine normale Familie? Gibt es diese uberhaupt? Im ersten Teil der Facharbeit gehe ich auf die Geschichte der Familie (Bauerliche, Burgerliche und Proletarische) ein, anschliessend erlautere ich Familienmodelle (Kernfamilie, Alleinerziehende, Patchworkfamilie) sowie Wohnmodelle (Wechselmodell, Nestmodell) der Gegenwart und benenne Ursache fur den Wandel der Familienformen. Letztlich gebe ich einen Ausblick in die Zukunft.
