Excerpt from Boys' Livestock Judging Contest A rule of the contests provides that the boys must keep' these animals and show them the next year. In several places the boys came back to the fair this year with stock won in a previous contestand beat the breeder from whose herd their prizes had come. This proof of their good care and handling as well as of the value of their stock has pleased these boys so that they are immensely proud to be in the livestock business. The other prize animals which are now being cared for by their new owners make a big list and include representatives of the following breeds: Holstein, Shropshire, Duroc, Ayrshire, and'chesteir White, and some registered chickens. Many of these prizes were generously furnished by breeders of pure bred live stock who like to see the boys interested. Prizes not furnished in this way were usually provided by the fair board. In Lake and Madison Counties the prizes were secured thru the efforts of the Rural Y. M. C. A. Secretaries. In Montgomery County where one of the prizes was a gold medal the Rural Y. M. C. A. Secretary did' much to interest the boys. Here the County Agricultural Agent was also a leader in the contest. Everywhere the contest was conducted by the county fair board with the assistance of the College of Agriculture at Columbus. The fair boards furnished the stock to work on, the prizes, and the boys. The first two they could vote at any meeting of the board, but the boys had to have some notice of what was expected of them. Thus some good advertising or else a lot Of personal solicitation was needed. Nearly all of the board-s took up this part with enthusiasm and ih terested a good crowd of boys. In a few cases not enough effort was made to interest the Iboys. In Putnam County a vigorous campaign of advertising was carried! On and as a result one hundred and thirty six entered. A very satisfactory plan for letting the boys know what was wanted of them was that used in Preble County. There the fair board and county School superintendent got in touch with every teacher and the teachers in turn explained the contest to the boys. In Preble County the largest number of boys stayed with the contest till it was finished and judged every ring.

Excerpt from Scoring Judging Contests Terms Defined The term Judging Contests, as accepted in this writ ing, means those occasions upon which a number of people express individual opinions as to the merits of a class of specimens with the idea that their opinions are to be compared with the decision of a recognized authority on that class of specimens. The people may be men or women or boys and girls assembled on occasions such as county and state fairs or state and national conventions of high school, college or lay groups. The specimens to be judged usually consist of classes of livestock, dairy cattle, poultry or crops products but the same procedure could be applied wherever there is opportunity for judgment as to the merits of specimens to' be compared. Specimens in the class should all be of the same kind so as to permit of logical comparison. For example, specimens of corn, potatoes, or apples should be of the same variety; animals should be of the same breed, sex, age and general condition. Specimens should be enough alike to make judgment difficult for contestants yet they should vary enough to preclude a difference of opinion by competent judges as to how they should rank. The most desirable group of specimens to constitute a judging problem is one which grades down perceptibly from the best to the poorest specimen.

In species with internal fertilization, sperm competition occurs when the sperm of two or more males simultaneously occupy the reproductive tract of a female and compete to fertilize an egg (Parker, 1970). A large body of empirical research has demonstrated that, as predicted by sperm competition theory, males and females in many species possess anatomical, behavioral, and physiological adaptations that have evolved to deal with the adaptive challenges associated with sperm competition. Moreover, in recent years, evolutionary biologists and psychologists have begun to examine the extent to which sperm competition may have been an important selective pressure during human evolution. Some research has suggested that male humans, like males of many bird, insect, and rodent species, might be able to adjust the number of sperm they inseminate according to the risk of sperm competition. Other research has examined whether such responses might be accompanied by psychological changes that motivate human males to pursue copulations when the risk of sperm competition is high. Furthermore, there is research suggesting that aspects of human penile anatomy might function to enhance success in sperm competition. Much of this work has been controversial; some of the findings have been disputed and others have been greeted with skepticism. However, the idea that some aspects of human psychology and behavior might best be understood as adaptations to sperm competition remains intriguing and, in certain cases, very persuasive.

Grimms’ fairy tales are among the best-known stories in the world, but the way they have been introduced into and interpreted by cultures across the globe has varied enormously. In Grimms’ Tales around the Globe, editors Vanessa Joosen and Gillian Lathey bring together scholars from Asia, Europe, and North and Latin America to investigate the international reception of the Grimms’ tales. The essays in this volume offer insights into the social and literary role of the tales in a number of countries and languages, finding aspects that are internationally constant as well as locally particular. In the first section, Cultural Resistance and Assimilation, contributors consider the global history of the reception of the Grimms’ tales in a range of cultures. In these eight chapters, scholars explore how cunning translators and daring publishers around the world reshaped and rewrote the tales, incorporating them into existing fairy-tale traditions, inspiring new writings, and often introducing new uncertainties of meaning into the already ambiguous stories. Contributors in the second part, Reframings, Paratexts, and Multimedia Translations, shed light on how the Grimms’ tales were affected by intermedial adaptation when traveling abroad. These six chapters focus on illustrations, manga, and film and television adaptations. In all, contributors take a wide view of the tales’ history in a range of locales—including Poland, China, Croatia, India, Japan, and France. Grimms’ Tales around the Globe shows that the tales, with their paradox between the universal and the local and their long and world-spanning translation history, form a unique and exciting corpus for the study of reception. Fairy-tale and folklore scholars as well as readers interested in literary history and translation will appreciate this enlightening volume.

Das erfolgreichste Buch zur Kunst der letzten fünfzig Jahre - jetzt neu auflegt im FISCHER Taschenbuch! Mit seinem legendären Buch ›Sehen. Das Bild der Welt in der Bilderwelt‹ lehrte John Berger uns Anfang der 1970er Jahre, Bilder neu zu sehen. Er analysiert Gemälde nicht isoliert in einer Welt von musealer Ewigkeit, sondern als Gebrauchsmuster der modernen Gesellschaft, die vor allem den weiblichen Körper zur Reklame benutzt. John Berger, der große europäische Erzähler und Essayist, feiert im November 2016 seinen 90. Geburtstag. Seine Essays zu Kunst und Fotografie sind aus der Ästhetik des 20. Jahrhunderts nicht mehr wegzudenken. Meisterhaft finden seine Erzählungen und Romane eine sinnliche Antwort auf die Frage, wie wir heute leben. »Es gibt niemals genug von John Berger!« Tilda Swinton
