2010 YEAR OF THE TIGER

According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of 2010 is the Year of the Tiger, which begins on February 14, 2010 and ends on February 2, 2011.   The Tiger is the third sign in the cycle of  Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 animal signs.  It is a sign of courage. This fearless and fiery fighter is revered by the ancient Chinese as the sign that wards off the three main disasters of a household: fire, thieves and ghosts.

People born in the Year of the Tiger are generally well liked because of their charming personalities.  Often, failing at a given task or being unproductive in his personal or professional life can cause a Tiger to experience a deep depression.  Criticism from loved ones can also generate this type of Tiger reaction.

Largo’s Spider Crab (Cyrtomaia largoi)  - This deep sea spider crab is characterised by many long sharp spines and long legs. This species was hauled out of the depths from over 400 meters. The species is named after the head of USC’s biology program, Dr Danilo Largo, and was described by Dr. Bertrand Richer de Forges, an expert on the genus, from the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement in Nouméa, New Caledonia.

Fuzzy Sponge Crab (Hirsutodynomene vespertilio) - It is easily the most diagnostic of the sponge crabs known due to its dense fur and unusual carapace features, hence its common name. The species was named by Professor Colin McLay of Canterbury University in New Zealand, an expert on the family.  [Photo: P. Ng]

Your rating: None

According to the Chinese Zodiac Signs, people born in the Year of the Ox are emotionally well balanced and serene, which makes for stable relationship. They are completely dependable, extremely hardworking, resolute individuals who can overcome difficulties and achieve the goals that they have set for themselves. They show great judgment in choosing their friends. Once they decide to trust you, they become firm friends whose help and sound advise are much appreciated. However, don't ever take advantage of an ox, or you'll find yourself with a sworn enemy.

The loyal and trusting nature of ox women makes them vulnerable. They prefer to keep to a familiar circle of family friends rather than move out into the world. For them, affection and responsibility go hand in hand. They always give the best of themselves.
