Inbreeding
Inbreeding
Inbreeding
is the production of offspring from the mating or breeding of individuals or organisms that are closely related genetically.[2] By analogy, the term is used in human reproduction, but more commonly refers to the genetic disorders and other consequences that may arise from incestuous sexual relationships and consanguinity. Inbreeding
Inbreeding
results in homozygosity, which can increase the chances of offspring being affected by recessive or deleterious traits.[3] This generally leads to a decreased biological fitness of a population[4][5] (called inbreeding depression), which is its ability to survive and reproduce. An individual who inherits such deleterious traits is referred to as inbred

Guinea (British Coin)
The guinea was a coin of approximately one quarter ounce of gold that was minted in Great Britain
Great Britain
between 1663 and 1814.[1] The name came from the Guinea region in West Africa, where much of the gold used to make the coins originated.[2] It was the first English machine-struck gold coin, originally worth one pound sterling,[1] equal to twenty shillings, but rises in the price of gold relative to silver caused the value of the guinea to increase, at times to as high as thirty shillings. From 1717 to 1816, its value was officially fixed at twenty-one shillings. When Britain adopted the gold standard the guinea became a colloquial or specialised term. Although no longer circulated, the term guinea survives as a unit of account in some fields. Notable usages include horse racing,[1] and in the sale of rams to mean an amount of one pound and one shilling (21 shillings) or one pound and five pence (£1.05) in decimalised currency

Maiden Race
In horse racing a maiden race is an event for horses that have not won a race.[1] Horses that have not won a race are referred to as maidens.[1] Maiden horse races are held over a variety of distances and under conditions with eligibility based on the sex or age of the horse. Races may be handicaps, set weights, or weight for age. In many countries, maiden races are the lowest level of class and represent an entry point into a racing career. In countries such as the United States, maiden special weight races rank above claiming races, while maiden claiming races allow the horse to be claimed (bought) by another owner. Eligibility[edit] Generally, horses have to be maidens (non-winners) at the time of the race. In regions where jumping races take place, flat racing and jumps racing are sometimes treated as two distinct forms of racing and winning in one category does not preclude a horse entering a maiden in the other

Furlongs
A furlong is a measure of distance in imperial units and U.S. customary units equal to one-eighth of a mile, equivalent to 660 feet, 220 yards, 40 rods, or 10 chains. Using the international definition of the inch as exactly 25.4 millimetres, one furlong is 201.168 metres. However, the United States does not uniformly use this conversion ratio. Older ratios are in use for surveying purposes in some states, leading to variations in the length of the furlong of about two parts per million, or 0.4 millimetres (​1⁄64 inch). This variation is too small to have many practical consequences. Five furlongs are about 1.0 kilometre (1.00584 km is the exact value, according to the international conversion).Contents1 History 2 Use 3 Conversion to SI units 4 See also 5 ReferencesHistory[edit] The name furlong derives from the Old English words furh (furrow) and lang (long)
