|" LAGOS Juan Agudelo World Cup Jersey , Feb. 26 (Xinhua) -- Nigeria's soccer governing body on Friday appointed former player Samson Siasia as new head coach of the Super Eagles.
The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) made the announcement at the end of the federation's technical committee meeting on Friday.
Siasia's appointment followed the resignation of Sunday Oliseh, a former national team captain as Eagles coach on Friday morning, citing breach of contract on the part of the country's football federation responsible for his decision.
Siasia will be assisted by Salisu Yusuf and Emmanuel Amuneke, the FA said. Enditem
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 16 (Xinhua) -- New research suggests fox squirrels organize their stashes of nuts by variety, quality and possibly even preference Jozy Altidore World Cup Jersey , by using "chunking," a cognitive strategy in which humans and other animals organize spatial, linguistic, numeric or other information into smaller more manageable collections.
Detailed in a paper published this week in the Royal Society Open Science journal, researchers at the University of California, Berkeley Jorge Villafana World Cup Jersey , noted that fox squirrels stockpile at least 3,000 to 10,000 nuts a year and, under certain conditions, separate each cache into quasi "subfolders" similar to those in a computer storage system, one for each type of nut.
The study used combinations of locations and nut sequences on various groups of fox squirrels.
In one experiment Jordan Morris World Cup Jersey , each of the squirrels were fed 16 nuts, one after another, under two separate conditions: Some were fed at the locale where they had cached the previous nut fed to them while others were fed at one central location, to which they would need to return if they wanted another nut.
Some squirrels were given 16 nuts in rows of four, say, almonds followed by pecans John Brooks World Cup Jersey , followed by hazelnuts and then walnuts, while others received 16 nuts in random order.
Using hand-held Global Positioning System, or GPS, navigators, the researchers tracked the squirrels from their starting location to their caching location, then mapped the distribution of nut types and caching locations to detect patterns.
The research team found that the squirrels who foraged at a single location frequently organized their caches by nut species Joe Corona World Cup Jersey , returning to, say, the almond area, if that was the type of nut they were gathering, and keeping each category of nut that they buried separate.
Meanwhile, the squirrels foraging in multiple locations deliberately avoided caching in areas where they had already buried nuts Jesse Gonzalez World Cup Jersey , rather than organizing nuts by type.
The findings over a two-year period from 45 male and female fox squirrels in wooded locations on the UC Berkeley campus suggest that when lacking the cognitive anchor of a central food source, the reddish gray, bushy-tailed rodents utilize a different and perhaps simpler problem-solving approach to avoid the areas where they had previously cached.
Presumably, according to the authors, sophisticated caching techniques maximize the squirrels' ability to remember where they've stored their most prized treats while at the same time hiding them from potential pilferers.
"This is the first demonstration of chunking in a scatter-hoarding animal, and also suggests that squirrels use flexible strategies to store food depending on how they acquire food Gyasi Zardes World Cup Jersey ," study lead author Mikel Delgado, a post-doctoral researcher who conducted the study along with UC Berkeley psychology professor Lucia Jacobs, said in a news release.

Adult Christmas games can make your holiday celebration a hit. Playing group games is a great ice breaker and fun maker to get the party started and keep it going. Try these great games designed for adult group suitable for friends, family or co-workers.
Kiss it Relay: Place a large bowl of Hersey's kisses on a table. Divide your group into two teams and have them line up around 10-15 feet away from the table. Give the first people in the row mittens that are slightly larger than they would ever need. On the mark of "Go", the first player of each team runs to the table (with their mittens on) Graham Zusi World Cup Jersey , takes a Hershey's kiss out from the bowl and tries unwrapping it with the large mittens. After they unwrap it they have to run down and pop it into the next person's mouth. The next person takes the mittens and runs to the bowl to do the same.
Reindeer Antlers: Divide your group into teams of two to four people. Give each group a pair of pantyhose. Give each team eight balloons. Then, when "Go" is said, the race starts, and the teams start blowing up the balloons and stuffing them into the pantyhose. Once all the balloons are stuffed inside the pantyhose, a team member wears the "reindeer antlers" and the team yells "Rudolph" when finished. The first team to finish is the winning team.
Oh Christmas Tree: For this game you need green construction paper. Give everyone a chance in attempting to rip a sheet of green construction paper (behind their back) into the shape of a Christmas tree (they cannot look at their trees until finished). Once they've finished ripping, and before they look Geoff Cameron World Cup Jersey , give them little stickers to decorate their tree with. Once all done, hang everyone's tree up and have everyone judge for the best looking tree.
Sneaky Santa: Have each guest wear name tags. Write one small letter in the corner of each tag in one of 3 col.
