The jaguar is the third-largest feline species after the tiger and the lion , and the largest in the Americas .

Vincent Youmans


Vincent Millie Youmans (September 27, 1898 – April 5, 1946) was an American Broadway composer and producer.

Youmans' early songs are remarkable for their economy of melodic material: two-, three- or four-note phrases are constantly repeated and varied by subtle harmonic or rhythmic changes. In later years, however, apparently influenced by Jerome Kern , he turned to longer musical sentences and more free-flowing melodic lines. Youmans published fewer than 100 songs, but 18 of these were considered standards by ASCAP , a remarkably high percentage. Biography Youmans was born in New York City into a prosperous family of hat makers. When he was two, his father moved the family to

Astrological sign


Circles of 9 and 12 - The 108 Human Types In Western astrology , astrological signs are the twelve 30° sectors of the ecliptic , starting at the vernal equinox (one of the intersections of the ecliptic with the celestial equator ), also known as the First Point of Aries. The order of the astrological signs is Aries , Taurus , Gemini , Cancer , Leo , Virgo , Libra , Scorpio , Sagittarius , Capricorn , Aquarius and Pisces .
