Tongue splitting

Tongue bifurcation, splitting or forking, is a type of body modification in which the tongue is cut centrally from its tip to as far back as the underside base, forking the end.

First language Language a person was raised speaking from birth

A first language, native language or mother/father/parent tongue, is a language that a person has been exposed to from birth or within the critical period. In some countries, the term native language or mother tongue refers to the language of one's ethnic group rather than one's first language.

Taste bud specialized receptor organ located in the epithelium of the papillae of the tongue and in the soft palate, epiglottis, and pharynx

Taste buds contain the taste receptor cells, which are also known as gustatory cells. The taste receptors are located around the small structures known as papillae found on the upper surface of the tongue, soft palate, upper esophagus, the cheek, and epiglottis. These structures are involved in detecting the five elements of taste perception: salty, sour, bitter, sweet and umami. A popular myth assigns these different tastes to different regions of the tongue; in reality these tastes can be detected by any area of the tongue. Via small openings in the tongue epithelium, called taste pores, parts of the food dissolved in saliva come into contact with the taste receptors. These are located on top of the taste receptor cells that constitute the taste buds. The taste receptor cells send information detected by clusters of various receptors and ion channels to the gustatory areas of the brain via the seventh, ninth and tenth cranial nerves.

Bifurcation or bifurcated may refer to:

In mathematics, catastrophe theory is a branch of bifurcation theory in the study of dynamical systems; it is also a particular special case of more general singularity theory in geometry.

Bifurcation theory area of mathematics

Bifurcation theory is the mathematical study of changes in the qualitative or topological structure of a given family, such as the integral curves of a family of vector fields, and the solutions of a family of differential equations. Most commonly applied to the mathematical study of dynamical systems, a bifurcation occurs when a small smooth change made to the parameter values of a system causes a sudden 'qualitative' or topological change in its behavior. Bifurcations occur in both continuous systems and discrete systems. The name "bifurcation" was first introduced by Henri Poincaré in 1885 in the first paper in mathematics showing such a behavior. Henri Poincaré also later named various types of stationary points and classified them.

Pilibhit district Districts of Uttar Pradesh in India

Pilibhit district is one of the districts in the state of Uttar Pradesh in India, and Pilibhit city is the district headquarters. Pilibhit district is a part of Bareilly Division. The district has elected eleven central ministers in 14 parliamentary elections. The member of 14th parliament from Pilibhit constituency Menaka Gandhi is India's first lady member of parliament, who was elected more than five times from a single constituency.

Hopf bifurcation

In the mathematical theory of bifurcations, a Hopfbifurcation is a critical point where a system's stability switches and a periodic solution arises. More accurately, it is a local bifurcation in which a fixed point of a dynamical system loses stability, as a pair of complex conjugate eigenvalues - of the linearization around the fixed point - crosses the complex plane imaginary axis. Under reasonably generic assumptions about the dynamical system, a small-amplitude limit cycle branches from the fixed point.

Arnold tongue

In mathematics, particularly in dynamical systems theory, an Arnold tongue is a phase-locked or mode-locked region in a driven (kicked) weakly-coupled harmonic oscillator. Arnold tongues are observed in a large variety of complex vibrating systems, including the inharmonicity of musical instruments, orbital resonance and tidal locking of orbiting moons, mode-locking in fiber optics and phase-locked loops and other electronic oscillators, as well as in cardiac rhythms and heart arrhythmias.

A pitchfork is a long-handled tool with sharp, widely spaced prongs for lifting and pitching (throwing) loose material such as hay or dung.

Arizonerpeton is an extinct genus of nectridean lepospondyl. It contains a single species, Arizonerpeton wellsi. It lived in what is now the Swisshelm Mountains of modern-day Arizona, United States. This locality belongs to the Black Prince Limestone Formation, which is dated to the middle Pennsylvanian subperiod of the Carboniferous era.

Good Shepherd Kuriannoor school in Kerala, India

Good Shepherd School at Kuriannoor in Pathanamthitta district of Kerala, India, was founded by its patron, the late Professor V. A. Mathen Bose and Shanta Bose. Set in the pristine ecological-hamlet of Kurianoor village, the school offers education for boys and girls from kindergarten to grade 12. The school's motto is : Truth is beauty: beauty truth, and trains children to become competent, caring and responsible adults.

Scleroglossa suborder of reptiles

Scleroglossa is a clade of lizards that includes geckos, autarchoglossans, and amphisbaenians. Scleroglossa is supported by phylogenetic analyses that use morphological features. According to most morphological analyses, Scleroglossa is the sister group of the clade Iguania, which includes iguanas, chameleons, agamids, and New World lizards. Together, Scleroglossa and Iguania make up crown group Squamata, the smallest evolutionary grouping to include all living lizards and snakes.

<i>Slip of the Tongue</i> 1989 studio album by Whitesnake
