How many bones are in the adult human body?

Answer: The adult human body has 206 bones. They range in size from the tiniest found in the middle ear, to the largest that forms our thigh. Of the 206 bones in the adult human body, more than half (106) are in the hands and feet. The number of bones in the skeleton changes with age, a process which typically reaches completion in the third decade of life. An infant may have from 300-350 bones at birth. Many of these fuse together as the infant grows. When these bones fuse and become one bone, the number of overall bones drops to the 206 bones.

Ans: 206 bones

What does a tendon connect?

Muscle to bone

Ligament to Ligament

Bone to bone

Ligament to bone

Question:

Answer: The difference between a tendon and a ligament is that a tendon connects muscle to bone, while a ligament connects two bones. Tendons let your muscles move bones, whereas ligaments stabilize joints. Tendons are simply connective tissues that attach muscles to bone and help them move our joints when they contract. Tendons come in many shapes and sizes. While the most recognizable shape is the long thin kind (such as the Achilles tendon), they can also very thick, depending on the shape of the muscle and attachment of the bone.

One-third of a bushel of apples, or about 36 apples, will produce approximately 1 gallon of apple cider. A favorite of the autumn season, apple cider is just apples with nothing else added. After washing, cut apples are ground into a thin consistency like applesauce. This mash is then wrapped in cloth and loaded onto wooden racks. A hydraulic press then squeezes it. The juice is then collected in refrigerated tanks. Source: Reference.com

President Donald Trump’s assault on the NFL that started during a political rally in Alabama on Friday night has continued all weekend on Twitter, including a tweet on Sunday morning several hours before the day’s slate of games get underway.

President Trump’s latest missive is directed at fans, who he urges to “refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country.” He follows up by predicting that if fans do that, “you will see change take place fast.” He then repeats his call for NFL teams to “fire or suspend” players who do not stand during the national anthem.

The NFL’s rules encourage but do not require players to stand for the playing of the anthem. Several team owners have issued statements over the last 24 hours referring to President Trump’s comments over the last few days as divisive and supporting their players’ ability to express themselves.

Those expressions should be widespread in NFL stadiums around the country on Sunday.

What well-known patriotic song features the line “From sea to shining sea”?

  • "God Bless America"
  • "This Land Is Your Land"
  • "America the Beautiful"
  • "Yankee Doodle"

Question:

Answer: "America the Beautiful" is an American patriotic song. Katharine Bates originally wrote the words as a poem, "Pikes Peak", first published in the Fourth of July edition of the church periodical The Congregationalist in 1895. At various times, there have been efforts to give "America the Beautiful" legal status either as a national hymn or as a national anthem equal to, or in place of, "The Star-Spangled Banner", but so far this has not succeeded. "From sea to shining sea", is an American idiom meaning "from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean".

Olympic champion Eliud Kipchoge wins Berlin Marathon | Charlotte Observer

Olympic champion Eliud Kipchoge wins Berlin Marathon | Charlotte Observer

Olympic champion Eliud Kipchoge held off the challenge of debutant Guye Adola to win the Berlin Marathon on Sunday.

The Kenyan won in 2 hours, 3 minutes, 32 seconds, missing out on the world record by 35 seconds in wet conditions.

Compatriot Dennis Kimetto ran 2:02:57 on the same course in 2014.

"The conditions weren’t ideal. It rained. Luckily there wasn’t too much wind. In the end I’m just happy to have won against Adola," Kipchoge said.

Adola of Ethiopia finished 14 seconds behind, and surprised by pushing Kipchoge hardest. Defending champion Kenenisa Bekele fell behind and then former world-record holder Wilson Kipsang dropped out.

"That’s sport," said Kipchoge, who won the Berlin Marathon in 2015 despite flapping insoles in his shoes.

Gladys Cherono won the women’s race in 2:20:23, ahead of Ethiopia’s Ruti Aga and fellow Kenyan Valary Ayabei.

Former winners Kipchoge, Bekele and Kipsang — the world’s three strongest marathon runners with personal bests all under 2:03:30 — were targeting Dennis Kimetto’s mark before the race but were hampered by misty drizzle.

The favorites all passed the halfway mark in 1:01:29, accompanied by Adola and Vincent Kiproto, but Bekele looked to be in trouble and fell out of contention shortly afterward.

Kipsang suddenly stopped at the 30-kilometer mark, leaving Kipchoge and Adola to duel it out.

The debutant made his move with around five kilometers remaining, but Kipchoge stayed on his tail and drew level by the 40-kilometer mark before pulling away for the victory.

Adola’s time of 02:03:46 was the fastest debut on a record-eligible course.

While the drizzle dampened the top three’s hopes of breaking the record, it provided relief for the majority of the 43,000 runners with more modest ambitions.

Several had their own records to beat, including Bernardo Castro Dominguez of Ireland, who wanted to run the men’s fastest marathon dressed as a lucha libre wrestler; Jennifer McBain of Britain who dressed as a hot dog to beat the women’s record for a marathon dressed as a fast food item; and Patrick Kennedy of Britain, who dressed as a snowboarder for charity.

The 52-year-old Kennedy ran the London Marathon while playing a mandolin.

"I thought this would be easier because I don’t have to play the mandolin," Kennedy said of his 11th marathon. "Ich bin ein snowboarder."
