Highly adapted for life in the water, penguins have countershaded dark and white plumage, and their wings have become flippers. Most penguins feed on krill, fish, squid, and other forms of sealife caught while swimming underwater. They spend about half of their lives on land and half in the oceans.</p> <p>Although all penguin species are native to the southern hemisphere, they are not found only in cold climates, such as Antarctica. In fact, only a few species of penguin live so far south. Several species are found in the temperate zone, and one species, the Gal&aacute;pagos Penguin, lives near the equator.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Micah http://beta.nationalprayerbank.com/profile/popup/B53AA005-2/ 2012-07-17T14:33:00Z 2012-07-17T14:34:54.003Z Testing the Blog E-mail on outlook <p>A desert is a landscape or region that receives an extremely low amount of precipitation, less than enough to support growth of most plants. Most deserts have an average annual precipitation of less than 400 millimetres (16&nbsp;in).[1] A common definition distinguishes between true deserts, which receive less than 250 millimetres (10&nbsp;in) of average annual precipitation, and semideserts or steppes, which receive between 250 millimetres (10&nbsp;in) and 400 to 500 millimetres (16 to 20 in).[1][2]</p> <p>Deserts can also be described as areas where more water is lost by evapotranspiration than falls as precipitation.[1] In the K&ouml;ppen climate classification system, deserts are classed as BWh (hot desert) or BWk (temperate desert). In the Thornthwaite climate classification system, deserts would be classified as arid megathermal climates.[3][4]</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Deserts are part of a wide classification of regions that, on an average annual basis, have a moisture deficit (i.e. they lose more moisture than they receive).[2] Measurement of rainfall alone cannot provide an accurate definition of what a desert is because being arid also depends on evaporation, which depends in part on temperature. For example, Phoenix, Arizona receives less than 250 millimeters (10&nbsp;in) of precipitation per year, and is immediately recognized as being located in a desert due to its arid adapted plants. The North Slope of Alaska's Brooks Range also receives less than 250 millimeters (10&nbsp;in) of precipitation per year and is often classified as a cold desert.[5] Other regions of the world have cold deserts, including areas of the Himalayas[6] and other high altitude areas in other parts of the world.[7] Polar deserts cover much of the ice free areas of the arctic and Antarctic.[8][9] An alternative definition describes deserts as parts of earth that don't have a sufficient vegetation cover to support human population.[10]</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Micah http://beta.nationalprayerbank.com/profile/popup/B53AA005-2/ 2012-07-18T14:29:00Z 2012-07-18T14:40:35.607Z test queau <p>test queau</p> Micah http://beta.nationalprayerbank.com/profile/popup/B53AA005-2/ 2010-08-29T21:13:00Z 2012-04-19T21:14:12.487Z Test <p>This is a test</p> Micah http://beta.nationalprayerbank.com/profile/popup/B53AA005-2/ 2012-03-07T14:57:00Z 2012-03-07T14:57:50.08Z test <p>test</p> Micah http://beta.nationalprayerbank.com/profile/popup/B53AA005-2/ 2012-01-20T21:46:00Z 2012-01-20T21:54:46.417Z Can Blog Posts be posted elsewhere on the site? <p>Blog slash announcement post</p> Micah http://beta.nationalprayerbank.com/profile/popup/B53AA005-2/ 2010-12-14T22:39:00Z 2011-08-29T21:41:41.04Z Post #2 <p>John 4 Jesus Talks With a Samaritan Woman &nbsp;1 Now Jesus learned that the Pharisees had heard that he was gaining and baptizing more disciples than John&mdash; 2 although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples. 3 So he left Judea and went back once more to Galilee. &nbsp;4 Now he had to go through Samaria. 5 So he came to a town in Samaria called Sychar, near the plot of ground Jacob had given to his son Joseph. 6 Jacob&rsquo;s well was there, and Jesus, tired as he was from the journey, sat down by the well. It was about noon.</p> Micah http://beta.nationalprayerbank.com/profile/popup/B53AA005-2/ 2011-01-20T22:38:00Z 2011-08-29T21:55:20.883Z Post #1 <p>&nbsp;16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.</p> Micah http://beta.nationalprayerbank.com/profile/popup/B53AA005-2/ 2010-08-29T21:18:00Z 2012-04-19T21:13:43.237Z An Old Post <p>test</p> Brett Golson http://beta.nationalprayerbank.com/profile/popup/175ED1C6-6/ 2011-07-25T22:52:00Z 2011-07-25T22:52:16.28Z zz <p>zz</p> Brett Golson http://beta.nationalprayerbank.com/profile/popup/175ED1C6-6/ 2011-06-16T14:42:00Z 2011-06-16T14:43:01.517Z This is a test <p>test blog</p> Micah http://beta.nationalprayerbank.com/profile/popup/B53AA005-2/ 2011-06-08T16:30:00Z 2011-06-08T16:35:15.873Z GOD is Patient <p><em>You, O Lord, are a God of mercy and grace, slow to anger and abundant in lovingkindness and truth.</em> Psalm 86:15</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Paul referred to God as &ldquo;the God of Patience.&rdquo; The Bible calls on us to be like Christ, and to put on, like a coat, a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.
