There is perhaps something in the history of these ancient and gigantic creatures that also ties them to larger than life figures. Adwaitya became known as “Clive’s pet”, and in reading his obituary one might have been reading about the death of Clive himself. Said to have been one of four tortoises gifted to Robert Clive, whose triumph at arms at Plassey in eastern India in 1757 is conventionally thought to have gained Britain its jewel in the crown, Adwaitya was transferred to the Calcutta zoo in 1875 and remained there for the rest of his life.
The uniform morphology of different species of Poaceae (grass) pollen means that identification to below family level using light microscopy is extremely challenging. Poor taxonomic resolution reduces recoverable information from the grass pollen record, for example, species diversity and environmental preferences cannot be extracted. Recent research suggests Fourier Transform Infra red Spectroscopy (FTIR) can be used to identify pollen grains based on their chemical composition.
I’m finding it really hard to write about myself without it sounding like a dating profile. I’m a super scary liberal so you probably wouldn’t want to date me anyway.I’m a travel agent and am always down to hop on a plane to anywhere. On top of traveling I like books, hockey, and beer.

Over the last two days, I showcased it for television audiences, using a Samsung Galaxy S3 Android phone to screencast what I see on my screen for the viewing audience. Despite my relatively limited time with Google Glass, the segments went smoothly and I was constantly amazed at the reception Google Glass received. People are intrigued and about as excited as they were when the first Apple iPhone hit the scene.
