Indian history is replete with stories about Maharajas and their histrionics. But we are not talking about those stories. That’s all classroom stuff. Guppy Theatre talks about the fun that the maharajas had and how they indulged their whimsies on a grand scale. Imagine having a pet tiger! Or a white elephant! Imagine having a palace for 1,000 dogs or a palace full of tricks and pranks! Imagine a princess behaving like a tomboy or a Maharaja commanding the flowers not to bloom! But it happened. Right here in India, in the Kingdom of Mastipur. In this audiobook - The Maharaja of Mastipur & the Palace of Pranks - hear how a Maharaja built a new palace that was full of "ghosts" and funny tricks. He even had the nerve to play a prank on British Royalty. And what’s a story if it’s not dramatized? Guppy Theatre has used loads of creative license to pepper the story till it sizzles with fun.  1.

The Nature of Sex: The Ins and Outs of Mating i...

A brilliantly engaging guide to the reproductive habits of creatures great and small. Narrated by the author, Dr. Carin Bondar. In The Nature of Sex, 'biologist with a twist' Carin Bondar presents the fascinating diversity of the reproductive habits of the animal kingdom and, through approachable explanations and humorous examples, succeeds in making an eternally popular subject into a book of international appeal. Her web series of the same name attracted over 12 million views, and in this richly diverse book she examines the sexual strategies and reproductive structures of the hyena, earwig and guppy, among other creatures. Dr. Bondar explains that until approximately 500 million years ago sex was a 'mere trickle of DNA', a thoughtless merging of cells. With the evolution of sexual organs as we know them, social hierarchies have also developed, dictated by the sexual dynamics between creatures of each species. She examines the mechanics of sexual intercourse between certain animals, describing differing tactics of seduction, from 'coercion' to 'titillation', showing images of different penises, and comparing the cost of reproductive cells in females (high) and males (low). She examines the violent methods used by some animals to inseminate females, from the bedbug's spiked, barbed penis to the 'ballistic' spiral-shaped penis of the duck. She then explores the probability that other animals experience pleasure from sex, based on observation of their behaviour related to choosing mates based on penis size or other pleasure-inducing appendages. Finally, Dr. Bondar describes matriarchal animal societies, noting that when the female has the reproductive power, or 'penis power', she also possesses social dominance in the group. Dr. Bondar reiterates that sex in the animal kingdom determines how males and females relate to each other and how their population will develop. Of course this extends to our own society as well, and her viv 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dr Carin Bondar. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/orio/000874/bk_orio_000874_sample.mp3.

Role of Environment in the Expression of Opsins
39,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Ornamental fish trade in India and its export to other countries has shown an increasing trend with more and more people wanting to own an aquarium as a hobby and also for decorating their houses, hotels, and offices. Among these fish, Guppies are very popular ornamental fish. The guppy is commonly called the rainbow fish because of the numerous color patterns. Guppies show sexual dimorphism. For example, males are smaller in size than females and have a bright colored pattern. The guppy is one of the premier model organisms for the study of phenotypic variation. This variation is a consequence of different evolutionary and environmental contexts, including predators, carotenoid availability and female preferences. Variation in female preference for males is due to the variation in color development especially orange color. Color variation is influenced by many intrinsic and extrinsic factors. The intrinsic factors include the opsin genes expression responsible for color development in guppies.

On the Road

zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

On the Road by Jack Kerouac is the exhilarating novel that defined the Beat Generation and is a 2012 major motion picture starring Kristen Stewart, Kirsten Dunst and Sam Riley, beautifully repackaged as part of the Penguin Essentials range. 'What's your road, man? - holyboy road, madman road, rainbow road, guppy road, any road. It's an anywhere road for anybody anyhow.' Sal Paradise, young and innocent, joins the slightly crazed Dean Moriarty on a breathless, exuberant ride back and forth across the United States. Their hedonistic search for release or fulfilment through drink, sex, drugs and jazz becomes an exploration of personal freedom, a test of the limits of the American Dream. A brilliant blend of fiction and autobiography, Jack Kerouac's exhilarating novel defined the new 'Beat' generation and became the bible of the counter culture. 'On the Road sold a trillion Levis and a million espresso machines, and also sent countless kids on the road. The alienation, the restlessness, the dissatisfaction were already there waiting when Kerouac pointed out the road' William Burroughs 'Pop writing at its best. It changed the way I saw the world, making me yearn for fresh experience' Hanif Kureishi, Independent on Sunday Jack Kerouac was born in Lowell, Massachusetts, in 1922. Educated by Jesuit brothers in Lowell, he decided to become a writer at age seventeen and developed his own writing style, which he called 'spontaneous prose'. He used this technique to record the life of the American 'traveler' and the experiences of the Beat Generation, most memorably in On the Road and also in The Subterraneans and The Dharma Bums. His other works include Big Sur, Desolation Angels, Lonesome Traveler, Visions of Gerard, Tristessa, and a book of poetry called Mexico City Blues. Jack Kerouac died in 1969.
