Since the Jurassic it has been a geologically stable area that resisted Cenozoic glaciations and today represents an ancient landscape characterized by subdued topography and nutrient-poor soils. Despite these ecological conditions, SWA contains an incredibly rich flora and fauna that includes a great diversity of endemic species and it recently has been identified as a biodiversity hotspot of international significance. Since the early recognition of the high floral diversity in SWA and subsequent recognition of high faunal diversity, much discussion has focused on the origins of this rich endemic biota. Multiple tests of these models have variously supported either one, but many of the tests have been poor. Here we use a phylogeny for the myobatrachid frog genus Heleioporus to distinguish between these hypotheses. Heleioporus comprises six species: A molecular phylogeny using two mitochondrial genes ND2 and 12S rDNA and one nuclear gene rag1 was used to test alternative theories about the biogeography and the origin of diversity in this genus. Using a relaxed molecular clock, the divergence between the eastern and western species was dated at Our phylogeny of Heleioporus is inconsistent with previous biogeographic hypotheses involving repeated invasions from the east to the west and some previous in situ models and instead strongly supports an ancient endemic speciation model. While the split between east and west appears to be contemporaneous with similar splits in Geocrinia Anura and Banksia Proteaceae it is much older than splits in a range of other taxa including other anurans.

Gay Albany: Lark Street charm. New York’s state capitol, Albany, is at the heart of the gay-friendly upstate New York. This area is full of small gay bedroom communities like Hudson, Saratoga Springs and Troy.
Properties to be listed are usually first approved by the state historic preservation offices for listing on their state-level heritage register and then nominated to the National Register. Sometimes they are nominated directly to the National Register. The NHL program predates the Register by a few years, and NHLs that had been designated prior to the establishment of the Register were administratively listed when the latter was established. Most of the listed properties are located in central Albany, close to the Hudson River and the original boundaries of the city, an area today largely coterminous with one listing, the Downtown Albany Historic District.
Near the city’s southern boundary, overlooking Interstate , is Nut Grove , the southernmost entry. The Rapp Road Community Historic District , in an area rural for much of its existence until the development of Crossgates Mall nearby,  is at the western and northern extreme.
Albany’s climate is maritime, strongly shaped and moderated by the Southern Ocean; the standard description is that it is Mediterranean, with moist, cool winters and warm, dry summers. Diurnal temperature range is minimal, and moderate humidity in summer assists ripening by reducing stress on the vines. Soil types of the region are either lateritic gravelly, sandy loams or sandy loams derived directly from granite and gneissic rocks.
Statement of Significance Point King Lighthouse Ruin has cultural heritage significance as an archaeological site for the following reasons; The place has important historical associations with shipping in Australia, and with the development of the port of Albany as the first port of call for shipping from Europe and Africa. The place has important associations with coastal navigation services in Australia, both as the remains as the first navigational lighthouse for the south west coast line dating from , and as the second lighthouse on the Western Australian coast.
The place is socially significant for its association with former lighthouse keepers and for contributing to Albany’s sense of place. The place is aesthetically important for its simplicity and the sophisticated utilisation of local material in the natural environment. Physical Description The building is located on the tip of Point King at the base of the shore line.
The ruin clearly shows the building was formerly four room with a central hallway. It is a random stone construction with brick around the doors and windows. The exterior walls were rendered and the interior walls show evidence of being plastered. The location of the building in a relatively remote and inaccessible position has meant it has been largely untouched by vandal.
Nevertheless its position does make it more vulnerable to strong winds and seas. Pilot Cottages The cottages consist of the pilot station which is a stone, iron and weatherboard construction; two timber cottages and a small timber outbuilding. The pilot station faces the ocean and the group occupy a splendid coastal site. The buildings are abandoned and derelict. Gun Emplacement The emplacement consists of a stepped concrete base for a gun and a magazine.
Central Washington University gives the city a lively atmosphere with student events and cafes. The Wild Horse Renewable Energy Center sits high on a ridge, and daily tours offered April through November provide guests with an up-close look at the facility’s nearly wind turbines. Consisting of displays and a 45 to minute walking tour, the Renewable Energy Center tour invites visitors to explore the 52 kw solar array, wind turbine blade, turbine generator and even to see inside the base of an active wind turbine.
Subregions. Albany is a subregion of the Great Southern region of Western Australia. Albany’s climate is maritime, strongly shaped and moderated by the Southern Ocean; the standard description is that it is Mediterranean, with moist, cool winters and warm, dry summers.
Albany’s Wesley Church Group – including a church, manse, and three halls – is an excellent example of a church complex designed in a variety of gothic architectural styles. The church group has strong community significance as the hub of Methodism in the region, as well as ties to many prominent citizens who contributed at various times to its physical and social development.
The church itself was constructed between and , as Albany’s population boomed following the opening of the Great Southern Railway. A telling sign of the optimism in Albany at the time, it was built to seat people despite only having 33 members. Notable architects and builders of the church group include architects Alfred M. Today, the Wesley Church Group remains in use for various church purposes including worship and community events. The former Albany State School comprises an intact group of public school buildings including a Headmaster’s house and former garden, and was developed to cater for Albany’s growing population during the s gold boom in Western Australia.
The matches I am getting are atrocious and there is no response from anyone. Initially I tried to initiate communication and there was zero response. I am on other paid dating sites as well as free ones and get communication initiated all day long. Contacted them to express my satisfaction and their response was that my fully completed profile with a full array of photos should have less selfies.
Albany “I’ve been severely hurt and emotionally damaged by this. Ms James was appointed as the city’s chief executive in December and began a five-year contract in February the next year. She was brought in to a council plagued with problems, including two councillors who were suing the city, the firing of the previous CEO and the threat by the Local Government Minister to sack them all. Ms James was sacked in June over what the council described as ‘irreconcilable differences’. She claims not to have known about the issues facing the city and alleges it misrepresented its state of affairs in appointing her.
That allegation forms part of a statement of claim Ms James has filed in the Supreme Court against the city, the Mayor Dennis Wellington, five other councillors and three city employees. Her action seeks re-instatement of her employment or damages, as well as costs. While the misrepresentation accusation is a significant part of her claim, it’s just the tip of the iceberg. Mr Wellington, Ms Attwell and councillors Robert Sutton, who is also the National Party’s candidate for the seat of Albany, and Ray Hammond threatened her and made racist and sexist comments in front of her.
Mr Sutton, Mr Hammond and fellow councillor Vince Callea “conspired to effect the dismissal of the plaintiff”. Those three, as well as Mr Wellington, Ms Attwell and fellow councillor Greg Stocks acted in a way “calculated to cause the plaintiff harm” by removing her as they did. Deputy Mayor Yvonne Attwell attempted to pressure Ms James to take action which would more favourably benefit her own business interests over the interests of ratepayers. Council employees Keith Barnett and Robert Monck falsely alleged Ms James’ was a bully, while they and fellow employee Linda Hill made other incorrect claims about her performance which the city didn’t properly investigate.
Those claims were later rejected by a panel of investigators which sparked another legal battle when former councillor Roley Paver and remaining member David Bostock sued the city, a local newspaper and a business group over the false accusations.
