The 1996 American Music Awards once again had Sweat nominated for an award, this time it was again for Favorite Album – Soul/ Rhythm & Blues and again in the following year he was nominated for Favorite Male Artist – Soul/ Rhythm & Blues.His one American Music Award win came in 1996 for the category Favorite Male Artist - Soul/ Rhythm & Blues.
In order to aid your festive flashbacks, we analyzed the Billboard Hot 100 chart for each year dating to the chart's 1958 launch and came up with this definitive list of the top 10 jams each summer that pumped out of your stereo most between Memorial Day and Labor Day. PHOTOS: 65 Celebrity Beach Bodies These hot tunes are ranked based on each track's performance on the Billboard Hot 100 chart during the summer. For the years corresponding with Nielsen Music data, 1992 onward, the rankings are based on accumulated radio and sales points, and points from other data sets that were included in the Hot 100 during those respective years.1.
For the period of 1991 and before, prior to the advent of Nielsen Music radio monitoring and point-of-sales data, the rankings are based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No.
Other artiodactyls include camels, cattle, deer and pigs, although hippopotamuses are not closely related to these groups. The Hippopotamidae are believed to have evolved in Africa; the oldest known hippopotamid is the genus Kenyapotamus, which lived in Africa from 16 to .
The suggested subspecies were never widely used or validated by field biologists; the described morphological differences were small enough that they could have resulted from simple variation in nonrepresentative samples. While hippopotamid species spread across Asia and Europe, no hippopotamuses have ever been discovered in the Americas, although various anthracothere genera emigrated into North America during the early Oligocene. Taxonomists disagree whether or not the modern pygmy hippopotamus is a member of Hexaprotodon – an apparently paraphyletic genus, also embracing many extinct Asian hippopotamuses, that is more closely related to Hippopotamus – or of Choeropsis, an older and basal genus.
Genetic analyses have tested the existence of three of these putative subspecies. Three species of Malagasy hippopotamus became extinct during the Holocene on Madagascar, one of them within the past 1,000 years.
A study examining mitochondrial DNA from skin biopsies taken from 13 sampling locations, considered genetic diversity and structure among hippo populations across the continent. The Malagasy hippos were smaller than the modern hippopotamus, likely through the process of insular dwarfism.mi The common hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius), or hippo, is a large, mostly herbivorous, semi-aquatic mammal native to sub-Saharan Africa, and one of only two extant species in the family Hippopotamidae, the other being the pygmy hippopotamus (Choeropsis liberiensis or Hexaprotodon liberiensis).The name comes from the ancient Greek for "river horse" ().The pygmy hippopotamus belongs to a different genus in Hippopotamidae, either Choeropsis or Hexaprotodon. Further, some taxonomists group hippopotamuses and anthracotheres in the superfamily Anthracotheroidea. Their common ancestor would have lived in the Miocene, about .Hippopotamidae are sometimes known as hippopotamids. Hippopotamidae are classified along with other even-toed ungulates in the order Artiodactyla. Hippopotamids are therefore deeply nested within the family Anthracotheriidae.Ancestors of European hippos found their way to many islands of the Mediterranean Sea during the Pleistocene.
