Trechus leleupi is a species of ground beetle in the subfamily Trechinae. It was described by Jeannel in 1954. Stanford University Dr. Matthew P. Scott was the tenth president of the Carnegie Institution for Science. His tenure was September 1, 2014 through December 31, 2017. Scott was Professor of Developmental Biology, Genetics, Bioengineering, and Biology at the Stanford University School of Medicine prior to his Carnegie appointment. Scott did his undergraduate and graduate work at M.
Scott served as Associate Chair and Chair of the Department of Developmental Biology for a total of six years. He chaired the multidisciplinary Bio-X program at Stanford from 2001-2007 and was Co-chair of the Center for Children’s Brain Tumors. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the National Academy of Sciences, and the Institute of Medicine, and he served as president of the Society for Developmental Biology. His awards include the Passano Award (1990), the Conklin Medal of the Society for Developmental Biology (2004), and the Pasarow Award in Cancer Research (2013).
While at Stanford University Dr. Scott studied how embryonic and later development is governed by proteins that control gene activity and cell signaling processes. He independently discovered homeobox genes in Drosophila melanogaster working with Amy J. Weiner at Indiana University. Among his laboratory’s many subsequent discoveries, he is recognized for the cloning of the patched gene family and demonstration that a human homolog PTCH1 is a key tumor suppressor gene for the Hedgehog signaling pathway as well as the causative gene for the nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome, or Gorlin syndrome.
Scott served on the faculty of the Department of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology at the University of Colorado starting in 1983. He moved to Stanford University in 1990 to join the faculty of the Department of Developmental Biology and the Department of Genetics. From 2002-2007 he was Chair of Bio-X, Stanford’s interdisciplinary biosciences program. He is married to Stanford developmental geneticist Margaret T. Fuller. Abakan is the capital city of the Republic of Khakassia, Russia.

During this spell he was selected to play for a Scottish B League XI against an Irish B League XI, where he scored a goal in the 6-0 win. Thereafter he played with Clyde, Arbroath and Albion Rovers. Following his football career, Duncan lived and worked as a machine tools operator in East Kilbride where he died after a short illness surrounded by his family.
Nabdalsa (2nd century BC) was a Numidian chieftain. Conspicuous both from his birth and wealth, he enjoyed a high place in the favour of the Numidian king Jugurtha, by whom he was frequently employed in services of the most important nature. Because of this trust, Bomilcar selected Nabdalsa as his agent in his plans to kill Jugurtha. But the plot was discovered by the negligence of Nabdalsa. Bomilcar was seized and put to death, but we do not know whether Nabdalsa shared the same fate.
Admiral Sir Astley Cooper Key GCB, ADC, FRS (18 January 1821 – 3 March 1888) was a Royal Navy officer. As a junior officer he saw action at the Battle of Vuelta de Obligado in November 1845 during the Anglo-French blockade of the Río de la Plata and took part at the Battle of Bomarsund in August 1854 and the Bombardment of Sveaborg in August 1855 during the Crimean War. He also went ashore with the naval brigade to take part in the Battle of Canton in December 1857 during the Second Opium War.
Astley Cooper Key was the son of Charles Aston Key, a well-known surgeon, and Anne Key (née Cooper). His father was a pupil of the pioneering surgeon Astley Cooper. Key joined the Royal Navy in August 1833. After initial training at the Royal Navy College at Portsmouth, he spent his early career in the third-rate HMS Russell in the Mediterranean Fleet and then, from 1839, in the sixth-rate HMS Cleopatra on the North America and West Indies Station.
Promoted to lieutenant on 22 December 1842, Key was posted to the fifth-rate HMS Curacoa on the South America Station. In February 1844 he transferred to the steam frigate HMS Gorgon and was in acting command of the schooner HMS Fanny at the Battle of Vuelta de Obligado in November 1845 during the Anglo-French blockade of the Río de la Plata. Promoted to commander on 18 November 1845, he was given command of the paddle sloop HMS Bulldog in the Mediterranean Fleet in May 1847.
