never before. If you were to look at surf videos today

By Michael Place

RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept. 18 (Xinhua) -- China achieved its aim set before the Rio Paralympics to finish at the top of the medal standings, just as they did at the previous three Games in Athens, Beijing and London.

But nobody could have imagined the success the 308-strong Chinese delegation would achieve in Rio as they became only the third country to win 100 gold medals in a single edition of the Paralympic Games.

China finished the 11-day megaevent with 107 gold, 81 silver and 51 bronze medals. The next best nation was Britain with 64 gold followed by Ukraine (41), the United States (40) and Australia (22).

Only the United States and Britain had previously achieved a century of gold medals at a single Paralympics. Both did so at the 1984 Games in New York City, when the US claimed 136 victories and Britain 107.

Zhang Haidi, chef de mission of the Chinese Paralympic delegation, said China's success reflected the country's efforts to provide an expansive support structure for athletes with disabilities.

"The medals of Chinese Paralympians come from the hard training of athletes and all of society's care for people with disabilities," Zhang said.

"Some people said that it is easy for China to win a medal, but behind the scenes our athletes have made a huge effort to get to the top level, even more than athletes without disabilities. We also have 17 sports training centers in China for people with disabilities."

It was more than simply the sheer volume of gold medals that surprised China's rivals in Rio. Some 17 gold medals came in team events, compared to just three in London four years ago.

China also had unprecedented success in events such as wheelchair racing - winning 16 finals - and wheelchair fencing, which yielded nine gold medals.

"The success is also thanks to the popularization of sports among people with disabilities," Zhang said. "More severely disabled athletes from China have competed in Rio. China emphasizes that sports can aid a lot in their rehabilitation.

"Only few people with disabilities can win a medal at the Paralympics. Back in China, there are around 85 million disabled people. The Paralympic Games and the medals won by Chinese athletes will be a big motivation for them, reminding them that we can reach our goals if we train hard," Zhang added.

Swimming was China's most prolific event in Rio, delivering 37 gold medals, followed by athletics (32), table tennis (13), wheelchair fencing (9), shooting (5), powerlifting (3), archery (3), cycling (3) and judo (2).

The most successful Chinese athlete was swimmer Huang Wenpan with five gold medals. He was followed by fellow swimmer Li Zhang (4), wheelchair racer Zhou Hongzhuan (3), swimmer Zou Liankang (3), wheelchair fencer Zhou Jingling (3), swimmer Wang Yinan (3), swimmer Pan Shiyun (3), swimmer Cheng Jiao (3), swimmer Xu Qing (3) and wheelchair fencer Rong Jin (3).

LONDON http://www.penguinsauthority.com/authen … ns-jersey/ , Dec.23 (Xinhua) -- Mammals evolved a greater variety of forms in the first few million years after the dinosaurs went extinct than in the previous 160 million years of mammal evolution, according to a study published Wednesday by the University College London (UCL).

New analysis of the fossil record shows that placental mammals became more varied in anatomy during the Paleocene epoch http://www.penguinsauthority.com/ , the 10 million years immediately following the event. Placental mammals, the group that today has nearly 5 http://www.penguinsauthority.com/authen … ns-jersey/ ,000 species, include elephants http://www.penguinsauthority.com/authen … ns-jersey/ , sloths, cats http://www.penguinsauthority.com/authen … ns-jersey/ , dolphins and humans.

Placental mammal fossils from this period have been previously overlooked as they were hard to place in the mammal tree of life because they lack many features that help to classify the living groups of placental mammals.

Through recent work by a team at UCL, this issue was resolved by creating a new tree of life for placental mammals.

"When dinosaurs went extinct http://www.penguinsauthority.com/authen … ns-jersey/ , a lot of competitors and predators of mammals disappeared, meaning that a great deal of the pressure limiting what mammals could do ecologically was removed. They clearly took advantage of that opportunity http://www.penguinsauthority.com/authen … ns-jersey/ , as we can see by their rapid increases in body size and ecological diversity," said Dr Anjali Goswami from UCL http://www.penguinsauthority.com/authen … ns-jersey/ , who participated in the study.

The team are now investigating rates of evolution in these mammals, as well as looking at body size more specifically http://www.penguinsauthority.com/authen … ns-jersey/ , according to UCL. Further work will involve building data from DNA into these analyses, to extend these studies to modern mammals.

Surfing first had started way back in Hawaii when Captain James cook was on the island. The boards they used back then were made from heavy thick wood so it made them hard to even paddle out. They were later made from other materials but not till way later when the modern short board came into play. After the short board came into the picture it changed surfing forever. Surfers could then use smaller boards but they would still float the same way as the others. Except now they could catch waves fast and do tricks that they had never done before. The boards allowed them to get down the line faster then ever so they could do new aerial tricks. The airs first started in California and places like that then other surfers started to do the same tricks so they changed surfing like never before. If you were to look at surf videos today and look at surfing videos from back in the day like the 60s and 70s you will see the difference.

Swells and waves are created from wind blowing over a long distance. That's what makes the swells travel until they hit the beaches in which we surf today. Like when you were to have a hurricane the wind would be blowing hard and fast out at sea but 50 to 100 miles inshore the waves would be pounding the shores. Hurricane surf is good because you are like guaranteed good clean offshore surf sometime or another when the hurricane gets close. Other types of sw.
