Michael and Paul Berrow were Duran Duran's managers, and formed the Tritec Music company named after the triangular-themed bar inside the club. The label used the Rum Runner office upstairs from the club as its official address. In developing the club's musical identity, the club offered its rooms as free rehearsal space to bands including Dexys Midnight Runners and UB40 , with The Beat filming a video for their song "Mirror in the Bathroom" in the club.
In the building was demolished and the Hyatt Hotel was subsequently built on the site. It peaked at 11 on the Billboard , and has been certified a gold album. Two singles were released from the album: "Ride the Tiger" reached only 84 on the Billboard Hot ; the follow-up single "Caroline" failed to chart.
Singer Marty Balin , who had not appeared on an Airplane or Airplane-offshoot album since Volunteers in , would write and sing on the single "Caroline. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article is about the Jefferson Starship album. For other albums with similar titles, see Dragonfly disambiguation. Many dragonflies have brilliant iridescent or metallic colours produced by structural coloration , making them conspicuous in flight.
An adult dragonfly's compound eyes have nearly 24, ommatidia each. There are about 3, extant species. Most are tropical , with fewer species in temperate regions. Loss of wetland habitat threatens dragonfly populations around the world. Dragonflies are predators , both in their aquatic larval stage, when they are known as nymphs or naiads, and as adults.
Several years of their lives are spent as nymphs living in fresh water; the adult stage of some dragonflies may be as long as ten weeks, but most species have an adult lifespan on the order of five weeks or less, and some last only a few days. They have a uniquely complex mode of reproduction involving indirect insemination, delayed fertilization, and sperm competition. During mating, the male grasps the female at the back of the head, and the female curls her abdomen under her body to pick up sperm from the male's secondary genitalia at the front of his abdomen, forming the "heart" or "wheel" posture.
Dragonflies are represented in human culture on artifacts such as pottery, rock paintings, statues and Art Nouveau jewelry. They are used in traditional medicine in Japan and China, and caught for food in Indonesia. They are symbols of courage, strength, and happiness in Japan, but seen as sinister in European folklore.
Their bright colours and agile flight are admired in the poetry of Lord Tennyson and the prose of H. Dragonflies and their relatives are an ancient group. The Protanisoptera , another ancestral group which lacks certain wing vein characters found in modern Odonata, lived from the Early to Late Permian age until the end Permian event, and are known from fossil wings from current day United States, Russia, and Australia, suggesting they might have been cosmopolitan in distribution.
The forerunners of modern Odonata are included in a clade called the Panodonata, which include the basal Zygoptera damselflies and the Anisoptera true dragonflies. The relationships of anisopteran families are not fully resolved as of , but all the families are monophyletic except the Corduliidae ; the Gomphidae are a sister taxon to all other Anisoptera, the Austropetaliidae are sister to the Aeshnoidea , and the Chlorogomphidae are sister to a clade that includes the Synthemistidae and Libellulidae.
About species of dragonflies were known in ; these are classified into genera in 11 families. The distribution of diversity within the bio-geographical regions are summarized below the world numbers are not ordinary totals, as overlaps in species occur. Dragonflies live on every continent except Antarctica. In contrast to the damselflies Zygoptera , which tend to have restricted distributions, some genera and species are spread across continents. For example, the blue-eyed darner Rhionaeschna multicolor lives all across North America, and in Central America;  emperors Anax live throughout the Americas from as far north as Newfoundland to as far south as Bahia Blanca in Argentina,  across Europe to central Asia, North Africa, and the Middle East.
Most Anisoptera species are tropical, with far fewer species in temperate regions. Dragonflies live from sea level up to the mountains, decreasing in species diversity with altitude. Dragonflies become scarce at higher latitudes. They are not native to Iceland , but individuals are occasionally swept in by strong winds, including a Hemianax ephippiger native to North Africa, and an unidentified darter species.
Dragonflies suborder Anisoptera are heavy-bodied, strong-flying insects that hold their wings horizontally both in flight and at rest.
By contrast, damselflies suborder Zygoptera have slender bodies and fly more weakly; most species fold their wings over the abdomen when stationary, and the eyes are well separated on the sides of the head. An adult dragonfly has three distinct segments, the head, thorax, and abdomen as in all insects.
It has a chitinous exoskeleton of hard plates held together with flexible membranes. The head is large with very short antennae. It is dominated by the two compound eyes , which cover most of its surface. The compound eyes are made up of ommatidia , the numbers being greater in the larger species. Aeshna interrupta has ommatidia of two varying sizes, being large. The facets facing downward tend to be smaller. Petalura gigantea has ommatidia of just one size. These facets provide complete vision in the frontal hemisphere of the dragonfly.
Also, they have three simple eyes or ocelli. The mouthparts are adapted for biting with a toothed jaw; the flap-like labrum , at the front of the mouth, can be shot rapidly forward to catch prey.
This arrester system is unique to the Odonata, and is activated when feeding and during tandem flight. The thorax consists of three segments as in all insects. The prothorax is small and is flattened dorsally into a shield-like disc which has two transverse ridges.
The mesothorax and metathorax are fused into a rigid, box-like structure with internal bracing, and provides a robust attachment for the powerful wing muscles inside it. The wings are long, veined, and membranous, narrower at the tip and wider at the base. The hindwings are broader than the forewings and the venation is different at the base.
The leading edge of each wing has a node where other veins join the marginal vein, and the wing is able to flex at this point. In most large species of dragonflies, the wings of females are shorter and broader than those of males. Each has two short basal joints, two long joints, and a three-jointed foot, armed with a pair of claws. The long leg joints bear rows of spines, and in males, one row of spines on each front leg is modified to form an "eyebrush", for cleaning the surface of the compound eye.
The abdomen is long and slender and consists of 10 segments. There are three terminal appendages on segment 10; a pair of superiors claspers and an inferior. The second and third segments are enlarged, and in males, on the underside of the second segment has a cleft, forming the secondary genitalia consist of lamina , hamule, genital lobe and penis. There are remarkable variations in the presence and the form of the penis and the related structures, the flagellum , cornua and genital lobes.
Sperm is produced at the 9th segment and is transferred to the secondary genitalia prior to mating. The male holds the female behind the head using a pair of claspers on the terminal segment.
In females, the genital opening is on the underside of the eighth segment and is covered by a simple flap vulvar lamina or an ovipositor , depending on species and the method of egg-laying. Dragonflies having simple flap shed the eggs in water, mostly in flight. Dragonflies having ovipositor, use it to puncture soft tissues of plants and place the eggs singly in each puncture they made.
Dragonfly nymphs vary in form with species and are loosely classed into claspers, sprawlers, hiders, and burrowers. The lower jaw has a huge, extensible labium , armed with hooks and spines, which is used for catching prey.
This labium is folded under the body at rest and struck out at great speed by hydraulic pressure created by the abdominal muscles. Water is pumped in and out of the abdomen through an opening at the tip. The naiads of some clubtails Gomphidae that burrow into the sediment, have a snorkel-like tube at the end of the abdomen enabling them to draw in clean water while they are buried in mud.
Naiads can forcefully expel a jet of water to propel themselves with great rapidity. Many adult dragonflies have brilliant iridescent or metallic colours produced by structural coloration , making them conspicuous in flight.
Their overall coloration is often a combination of yellow, red, brown, and black pigments, with structural colours. Blues are typically created by microstructures in the cuticle that reflect blue light. Greens often combine a structural blue with a yellow pigment. Freshly emerged adults, known as tenerals, are often pale-coloured and obtain their typical colours after a few days,  some have their bodies covered with a pale blue, waxy powderiness called pruinosity; it wears off when scraped during mating, leaving darker areas.
Some dragonflies, such as the green darner, Anax junius , have a noniridescent blue which is produced structurally by scatter from arrays of tiny spheres in the endoplasmic reticulum of epidermal cells underneath the cuticle.
The wings of dragonflies are generally clear, apart from the dark veins and pterostigmata. Fifty-six dubious police officers. Seven justified public drinking offences. Three showers.

Two visits to the emergency room. But the two are victims of similar issues because as each genre has become so specialized, there are very few ways in which a band can grow, experiment or even blossom without losing their status in the Album), or become Album) train Album). Nymphs of Cordulegaster bidentata sometimes hunt small arthropods on the ground at night, while some species in the Anax genus have even been observed leaping out of the water to attack and kill full-grown tree frogs. Dragonflies can be mistaken for the related group, damselflies Zygopterawhich are similar in structure, though usually lighter in build; however, the wings of most dragonflies are held flat and away from the body, while damselflies hold the wings folded at rest, along or above the abdomen. Curling back upwards, it completes its emergence, swallowing air, which plumps out its body, and pumping haemolymph into its wings, which causes them to expand to their full extent. So a wood-block sound was mixed in to make it even more percussive and, successfully, it did the job.
