Nature is filled with threes. Land, sea, and air. People propagate many plants by three chief methods. These methods are: (1) cuttage, (2) grafting, and (3) layering. Forests a catagirized into three major groups: (1) coniferous forests, (2) temperate deciduous forests, and (3) tropical rain forests.

Satna Records Three Digit Rains For Third Consecutive Day

Madhya Pradesh
Madhya Pradesh
Madhya Pradesh has been receiving heavy to very heavy rains during the past few days. So much so that many cities have been witnessing rainfall in three digits. Satna is one such city which has been receiving extremely heavy rain for three consecutive days.

During the last 21 hours from 8:30 am on Thursday, Satna recorded a whopping 244 mm of rain. The rainy tale doesn’t end here. While the city recorded 131 mm of rain on Tuesday, a whopping 277 mm of rainfall was observed on Wednesday.

These rains can be attributed to the weather system which has been lingering close to Madhya Pradesh for quite some time now. The system had intensified into a depression increasing the rainfall intensity over the area. Now, the weather system has weakened into a low pressure area.

Snail can sleep for 3 years.The reason snails sleep are they alike many other animals hibernate. Hibernation means that snails sleep when weather becomes excessively cold; it is a necessary for the survival of snails.

It is also been known some species of desert snails can do this for years before actually dying.Snails common diet are plants and other vegetation. Snails will bury themselves in the ground and close their shells off with their own slime. You can find them eating live plants, dying plants, rotting plants, fruits, and algae. A snail has a radula located inside its mouth to assist in the grinding of its food.

In the case of the BEE, it is the number three which pervades its phenomena—

  • In three days the egg of the queen is hatched.
  • It is fed for nine days (3×3).
    It reaches maturity in 15 days (5×3).
  • The worker grub reaches maturity in 21 days (7×3).
  • And is at work three days after leaving its cell.
  • The drone matures in 24 days (8×3).
  • The bee is composed of three sections,— head and two stomachs.
  • The two eyes are made up of about 3,000 small eyes, each (like the cells of the comb) having six sides (2×3).
  • Underneath the body are six (2×3) wax scales with which the comb is made.
  • It has six (2×3) legs. Each leg is composed of three sections.
  • The foot is formed of three triangular sections.
  • The antennae consist of nine (3×3) sections.

Gender – 63 combinations

gender
gender

To examine Gender (as opposed to Sex) I use a more specific definition than is typically used.  Gender is broken down into three aspects based on the Physical, Personality and Preferences that the individual person exhibits.  Each of these categories is then further broken down into three options:  Male, Female and Androgynous.  From these combinations of attributes, a persons gender can be identified with much more precision than previously available.

 

SUMMARY:

Due to different combinations of Male and Female attributes, people tend to naturally gravitate to using either Yin or Yang energy depending on their gender. However, “gender” is a much broader array of attributes than most people realize. Through the practice and use of using both Yin and Yang energies, you can increase the power and flexibility of your magical workings.

LECTURE:

Much conflict in modern social development is centered around the concept of there being two genders and that “allowed” combinations of those two. If there were more than just two genders, this conflict would not be nearly as polarized as it is today.

Well, you’re in luck, because I say there are a lot more than two genders.  I say that even in a fairly simple system of identifying genders, there are at least Sixty-Three (63) gender combinations.

It’s what is often called the ‘three B’s mentality’ – the boat, bach and the beemer.

Westpac’s Grow New Zealand report has found more companies with an annual turnover of between $250,000 and $5 million are doing better than four years ago.

The report says that 30 percent of businesses are growing, up from 12 percent. Many are up-skilling their staff but fewer are looking to invest to develop new products, increase sales or hire staff.

Three storms, dark forecast: ‘Frankenstorm’ a three-headed monster

Hurricane SandyThree storms, dark forecast: ‘Frankenstorm’ a three-headed monster
By Michael Muskal

The eastern half of the United States is bracing for a trio of powerful storms, including Hurricane Sandy, to hit in the coming days, bringing fierce winds, pounding rains and the potential for widespread damage, flooding and power outages.

As of Friday morning, Hurricane Sandy was over the Bahamas, traveling northwest at about 10 miles per hour, according to the National Hurricane Center. It was packing winds of at least 80 mph as it moved through the Caribbean, where more than 20 deaths were reported.

The hurricane was expected to turn northeast, the National Weather Service said, and strike the U.S. mainland somewhere along the East Coast — anywhere from the Carolinas to New Jersey to New England — probably late Sunday or early Monday. There is also a chance it could go back out to sea. But the storm is expected to wallop the entire region and emergency officials are advising coastal areas especially to begin preparing for the worst.

giant rat

giant rat

Taken at the Marcy House projects in Brooklyn last week this photo apparently shows housing worker Jose Rivera holding a three-foot rat he killed at the end of a pitch fork.

Rivera told The Daily News he hit the rodent once and it kept moving, but he struck it again and it died. “I’m not scared of rats,” he said, “but I was scared of being bitten.”

Rivera was filling a rat hole when three came running up at him, but he managed to kill only one.

Officials at Marcy Houses say sightings of the larger rats have been coming in for several years, but this is the first time one has been killed.

Animal experts say the rodent appears to be a Gambian pouched rat which have been outlawed in the U.S. since causing a 2003 outbreak of monkeypox that sickened 100 people.

Resident Stephanie Davis told The Daily News, “Even the cats are afraid of the rats. They get together and gang up on the cats.”
