Super-Sod rolled out TifTuf, their most drought-tolerant Bermudagrass, as a sponsor of Woodside’s Southern Living Inspired Home Tour in Aiken, South Carolina. Woodside Community in Aiken, South Carolina, boasts Southern charm and tradition, but their most recent claim to fame is their hand-picked status as a Southern Living Inspired Community. To celebrate this status, Woodside is presenting a tour of homes with two newly built Southern Living Inspired Homes. Both homes will feature TifTuf Bermudagrass lawns. Developed at the University of Georgia and tested since 1991, TifTuf Bermudagrass uses 38 percent less water than standard Tifway Bermuda. National Turfgrass Evaluation Program research at universities across the U.S. indicates that TifTuf maintains its green color later into the fall months and greens up earlier in the spring than other Bermudagrasses. “We decided to use TifTuf because of its water conservation,” said Wesley Elijah, President of Community Operations for Woodside Development. “TifTuf’s eco-friendly qualities help us remain good stewards to the environment.” However, TifTuf isn’t just gracing the lawns of the new homes. Woodside is in the process of converting all residential and commercial lawns in the community to TifTuf Bermudagrass. “We chose Super-Sod for this project because they have a reputation for quality products and vetting their certified turfgrasses,” Elijah said. “Working with Super-Sod for this conversion is a great partnership for the community.” The homes titled “The Polo at Summer Hill” and “The Savannah at the Village at Woodside” will be open for tours on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays beginning on Friday, April 21, and concluding Memorial Day, May 29. Visitors will tour both homes and have the opportunity to learn about Woodside communities and culture, the construction of the houses and products used both inside and outside. Sponsors and contributors to the tours will also host display spaces within the Village Center, where visitors can pick up their tickets. Super-Sod will exhibit a booth with information about TifTuf, and a sod expert will be present each weekend to answer any questions about the drought-tolerant Bermudagrass. Tickets to the Southern Living Inspired Home Tour are $10 and available for purchase on-site or online at WoodsideCommunities.com. Tour hours are Fridays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Special Memorial Day hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. All ticket proceeds will benefit the following charities: Operation FinallyHOME, Saratoga WarHorse and The ALS Association. The Village Center — headquarters for the tour — is located at 230 Village Green Blvd., Aiken, South Carolina. More information on the tour and Woodside communities can be found at WoodsideCommunities.com. Super-Sod, a subsidiary of Patten Seed Company, is a family-run business that employs experts in turf and horticulture throughout the Southeast. Super-Sod continuously develops new garden products; fosters gardening and landscaping; and seeks improvement in farming practices, technology, environmental stewardship and employee knowledge.

In the last two decades, we have focused on establishing a reliable technique for focal stimulation of vestibular receptors to evaluate neural connectivity. Here, we summarize the vestibular-related neuronal circuits for the vestibulo-ocular reflex, vestibulocollic reflex, and vestibulospinal reflex arcs. The focal stimulating technique also uncovered some hidden neural mechanisms. In the otolith system, we identified two hidden neural mechanisms that enhance otolith receptor sensitivity. The first is commissural inhibition, which boosts sensitivity by incorporating inputs from bilateral otolith receptors, the existence of which was in contradiction to the classical understanding of the otolith system but was observed in the utricular system. The second mechanism, cross-striolar inhibition, intensifies the sensitivity of inputs from both sides of receptive cells across the striola in a single otolith sensor. This was an entirely novel finding and is typically observed in the saccular system. We discuss the possible functional meaning of commissural and cross-striolar inhibition. Finally, our focal stimulating technique was applied to elucidate the different constructions of axonal projections from each vestibular receptor to the spinal cord. We also discuss the possible function of the unique neural connectivity observed in each vestibular receptor system. © 2011 Elsevier Ireland Ltd and the Japan Neuroscience Society.


A multiple display system having at least two mechanical arrangements such that in one of the at least two arrangements one of the multiple displays is stowed, out of the way mechanically and visually, when only a first display is in use; and one of the other of the at least two arrangements wherein the other of the multiple displays is substantially coplanar and adjacent to the one screen when both screens are in use. The other display in the one of the other of the at least two arrangements also runs the graphical user interface of an application, permitting the multiple display system to offer at least two programs running simultaneously, each with its own visual user-interface operating on its own display.
