Students that wish to get accepted into prestigious or highly-selective schools should seriously consider taking AP courses. They not only look outstanding on high school transcripts, but they can also give students an inside look at college courses before graduating from high school. Most importantly, they can assist students in earning college credit while still in high school, saving valuable time and money in the process. They will also help students develop the skills they need to succeed in the rigorous college atmosphere, and give students valuable knowledge that they can use both inside and outside of the classroom. The sooner students get a jump on their education, the sooner they’ll be able to reap the benefits of their efforts!

Bipedalism is the basic adaption of the hominin line, and it is considered the main cause behind a suite of skeletal changes shared by all bipedal hominins. The earliest bipedal hominin is considered to be either Sahelanthropus  or Orrorin , with Ardipithecus , a full bipedal,  coming somewhat later. [ citation needed ] The knuckle walkers, the gorilla and chimpanzee , diverged around the same time, and either Sahelanthropus or Orrorin may be humans' last shared ancestor with those animals. [ citation needed ] The early bipedals eventually evolved into the australopithecines and later the genus Homo . [ citation needed ] There are several theories of the adaptational value of bipedalism. It is possible that bipedalism was favored because it freed up the hands for reaching and carrying food, because it saved energy during locomotion, because it enabled long distance running and hunting, or as a strategy for avoiding hyperthermia by reducing the surface exposed to direct sun.
