Batwing Coral Crab | Carpilius corallinus

Love…he looks like a stone crab but red!
It’s a Sally Lightfoot!!!! I love these guys and have tons of photos of them from my trip to Galapagos
Upside-down Sea Jelly | ©Blogie (Talikud Island, Davao del Norte, Philippines)
Cassiopeia andromeda, the Upside-down jellyfish, is often mistaken for a sea anemone, because it frequently lies on the seabed with the oral part and tentacles up, hence their name (bottom photo).
This species is native to the Indo-Pacific, however, is also present in Hawaii where it is considered an introduced and invasive species, probably introduced unintentionally through their juvenile benthic stage attached to hull fouling, or pelagic stage transported in ballast water of ships [source].

I love these guys!
Endemic from Florida (US) to the South Brazilian coast, Ucides cordatus exhibits territorial behavior, living in individual burrows up to 2 m deep.
This crab plays a very important ecological role in mangrove areas, because its burrow activity is essential for soil drainage and aeration, and nutrient exchange between water and sediments.
U. cordatus is considered a keystone species of neotropical mangrove forest, and also it represents in Brazil a valuable fishery resource, exploited by local fishermen, both for their subsistence and also as a cash income source.
Would be ‘How to Adult’ high school would be preferable, but college would work. It should cover debt management, financial planning, how to do your taxes, general tax info (so you understand the basics beyond turbo tax), saving for retirement, insurance plans, etc.

Forever and always this.
This is perfectly stated
Yup yup yup.
Seriously. No Cookie.
Parts of a Short Research Talk
a) Introduction: States the question you were addressing and that puts what you did in context, telling your
audience why your work interested you and why it will interest them.
b) Methods: A brief statement of how you did your experiment or gathered your data. Tell just enough so
that a person who is generally informed about the field could understand clearly what you
c) Results: This section is the heart of the talk. It is the longest and most important part. In general, a good approach is to state a general result and then give an example to support that
a. Use tables, graphs, and numbers to illustrate your data. They help your listeners grasp your data quickly.
b. Be as quantitative as you can. It is the most concise way to present data.
c. Be selective about how much data you present. Depending upon the complexity of the figures and tables that you want to show, you should have no more than 6 to 8 figures or tables for a 15 minute talk. Your audience will not be able to absorb more
data than that, and both you and they will be frustrated if you try to pack in more.
d) Discussion: A brief interpretation of your results.
a. Were your results what you expected?
b. Do they confirm or challenge the results that others have previously produced?
c. Where would they lead next?
e) Conclusion: Can you draw conclusions about the general question that you stated in your introduction? At the end of your talk, you should come back to the question that you posed in your introduction and consider whether you can answer it based upon your results.
If your own experiments did not work out well, discuss what you might have expected to find, drawing from the literature on related experiments.
ELITE Presentation Tips
This is really a paper outline. While it kind of works, it doesn’t take into account how you should tailor talks to your audience. If you are talking to scientists in your field then the Intro is short (they already know the background info) BUT if you are talking to the general public it should be longer (they need more information to understand where your project fits). Generally the most effective talk outline the methods and results so you know what was done, and essentially what happened, but then spend the bulk of time fitting those results into context. Discussion and conclusions are the most important parts, because most people will not be able to process your graphs and listen to you at the same time.
