Rich Rants

Earth is still the best guarding organizer ever. In this way, as a great part of the country, even the south, gets held by a polar vortex, give careful consideration to those groups that are equipped for crushing out yards and first downs between the handles. At the point when the wind starts to whip and temperatures plunge around the solidifying imprint, once-solid passing assaults lose the adequacy they delighted in September and October. On the off chance that you can't adjust to the moving scene, you won't survive. See: Arizona State in Corvallis.

There are a chosen few projects that ought to never, ever employ a head mentor with no former head training background. Florida is one of them. The Gators committed the error four years back, however won't rehash it this time around. Since Will Muschamp is finishing off his doomed residency in Gainesville, Florida will look for a successor who's been there and through that. Dan Mullen, Rich Rodriguez and Bob bend ought to all be on Jeremy Foley's vacation list of things to get. Being the CEO of a name brand project brings a novel set of difficulties and weights that are difficult to recreate as an issue or whatever other right hand. The Gators ought to have known this after Urban Meyer went on rest.

There are passionate wins. And afterward there are passionate wins that reclassify the bearing of a system. Arkansas caught the recent Saturday night, closing out opponent LSU to snap a 17-amusement SEC losing streak. The Razorbacks have made extensive strides for second-year mentor Bret Bielema. Be that as it may the fullest effect of those additions would not be felt until the group got through with an association win. Next stop is the postseason, which will oblige a resentful of either Ole Miss or Mizzou in the following two amusements. Win a December diversion and Bielema's revamping model movements into overdrive heading into 2015.

Florida is a state in the southeastern region of the United States, bordered to the west by the Gulf of Mexico, to the north by Alabama and Georgia and to the east by the Atlantic Ocean. Florida is the 22nd most extensive, the 4th most populous, and the 8th most densely populated of the 50 United States. 

The state capital is Tallahassee, its largest city is Jacksonville, and the Miami metropolitan area is the largest metropolitan area in the southeastern United States. Much of Florida is a peninsula between the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Straits of Florida. Its geography is notable for a coastline, omnipresent water and the threat of hurricanes. 

Florida has the longest coastline in the contiguous United States, encompassing approximately 1,350 miles (2,170 km), and is the only state that borders both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Much of the state is at or near sea level and is characterized by sedimentary soil. The climate varies from subtropical in the north to tropical in the south. Some of its most iconic animals, such as the American alligator, crocodile, Florida panther and the manatee, can be found in the Everglades, one of the most famous national parks in the world.

Sharks are a group of fishes characterized by a cartilaginous skeleton, five to seven gill slits on the sides of the head, and pectoral fins that are not fused to the head. Modern sharks are classified within the clade Selachimorpha (or Selachii), and are the sister group to the rays. However, the term "shark" has also been used for extinct members of the suborder Elasmobranchii outside the Selachimorpha, such as Cladoselache and Xenacanthus. Under this broader definition, the earliest known sharks date from more than 420 million years ago.

Since that time, sharks have diversified into over 400 species. They range in size from the small dwarf lanternshark (Etmopterus perryi), a deep sea species of only 17 centimetres (6.7 in) in length, to the whale shark (Rhincodon typus), the largest fish in the world, which reaches approximately 12 metres (39 ft). Despite its size, the whale shark feeds only on plankton, squid, and small fish by filter feeding. Sharks are found in all seas and are common down to depths of 2,000 metres (6,600 ft). They generally do not live in freshwater although there are a few known exceptions, such as the bull shark and the river shark that can survive in both seawater and freshwater.They breathe through five to seven gill slits. Sharks have a covering of dermal denticles that protects their skin from damage and parasites in addition to improving their fluid dynamics. They also have several sets of replaceable teeth.

Well-known species such as the great white shark, tiger shark, blue shark, mako shark, and the hammerhead shark are apex predators—organisms at the top of their underwater food chain. Their predatory skill fascinates and frightens humans, even though their survival is threatened by human-related activities.

Eastern Towhee

The Eastern Towhee, Pipilo erythrophthalmus, is a large New World sparrow. The taxonomy of the towhees has been under debate in recent decades, and formerly this bird and the Spotted Towhee were considered a single species, the Rufous-sided Towhee.

Adults have rufous sides, a white belly and a long dark tail with white edges. The eyes are red, white for birds in the southeast. Males have a dark head, upper body and tail; these parts are brown in the female.

Their breeding habitat is brushy areas across eastern North America. They nest either low in bushes or on the ground under shrubs. Northern birds migrate to the southern United States. There has been one record of this species as a vagrant to western Europe; a single bird in Great Britain in 1966.

The song is a short Drink your teeeeea lasting around one second, starting with a sharp call ("drink!") and ending with a short trill "teeeeea". The name "towhee" is onomatopoeic description of one of the towhee's most common calls, a short two-part call rising in pitch and sometimes also called a "chewink" call.
