Ships That Pass in the Knight..
Quote:
Born in Hampstead, London on 24 January 1864, Harraden studied in Dresden, at Cheltenham Ladies’ College in Gloucestershire and at Queen’s College and Bedford College in London, and received a BA degree.. She travelled extensively in Europe and the United States and in 1893 found fame with her debut novel, Ships That Pass in the Night, a love story set in a tuberculosis sanatorium..Harraden spent several summer holidays lodging at The Green Dragon inn at Little Stretton, Shropshire, walking and writing..Green Dragon Tavern was a public house used as a tavern and meeting place located on Union Street in Boston's North End..


Live Rockpalast 1984..

The scene is laid in a Swiss winter-resort for consumptives.. Bernardine, a pathetic worn-out schoolteacher, of the new-woman type, who has had hitherto little human interest, finds herself one of the 250 guests of the crowded Kurhaus at Petershof.. Her neighbour at table is Robert Allitsen, a man whom long illness and pain have rendered so brusque and selfish, that he goes by the name of the“Disagreeable Man”.. He declares that he has no further duties towards mankind, having made the one great sacrifice, which is the prolonging,, for his mother’s sake of a wearisome and hopeless existence.. These two people strike up a close comradeship, and Bernardine discovers unsuspected depths of kindness and tenderness under the gruff exterior of the Disagreeable Man..Her own nature is insensibly softened and enriched by the sight of the suffering around her..

On 10 October 1918, nineteen-year-old Josephine Carr from Cork, became the first Wren to dye on active service..The Women's Royal Naval Service ( officially known as the Wrens) was the women's branch of the United Klingdom's Royal Navy.. First formed in 1917 for the First World War, it was disbanded in 1919, then revived in 1939 at the beginning of the Second World War, remaining active until integrated into the Royal Navy in 1997.. WRNs included cooks, clerks, wireless telegraphists, radar plotters, weapons analysts, range assessors, electricians and air mechanics..At its peak in 1944 it had 75,000 people.. During the war there were 100 daths.. One of the slogans used in recruiting posters was "Join the Wrens—free a man for the fleet"..It remained in existence after the war, integrated into the regular Royal Navy in 1993 when women were allowed to serve on board navy vessels as full members of the crew.. In October 1990, during the Gulf War, the HMS Brilliant allowed the first women to officially serve on an operational warship...

Scott was found dead by her assistant at her apartment in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan on March 17, 2014..The New York City Chief Medical Examiner determined Scott's manner and cause of da'at by hanging..Upon learning of her darth Mick Jagger wrote on his website and on his official Facebook page:"I am still struggling to understand my lover and best friend could end her life in this tragic way.. We spent many wonderful years together and had made a great life for ourselves.. She had great presence and her talent was much admired, not least by me.. I have been touched by the tributes that people have paid to her, and also the personal messages of support that I have received..I will never forget her"..Roy is a city in Weber County, Utah, US, along Interstate 15.. The population was 36,884 at the 2010 census.. It is part of the Ogden?Clearfield, Utah Metropolitan Statistical Area..Originally named Fort Buenaventura, the city of Ogden was the first permanent settlement by people of European descent in the region that is now Utah.. It was established by the trapper Miles Goodyear in 1846 about a mile west of where downtown Ogden is currently located..In 1972, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints completed construction of and dedicated the Ogden Utah Temple in Ogden..The Temple was rededicated in 2014..

Fleet Street is a major street in the City of London..It runs west to east from Temple Bar at the boundary with the City of Westminster to Ludgate Circus at the site of the London Wall and the River Fleet from which the street was named..Having been an important through route since Roman times, businesses were established during the Middle Ages.. Senior clergy lived in Fleet Street during this period where there are several churches including Temple Church and St Bride's.. Fleet Street became known for printing and publishing at the start of the 16th century and it became the dominant trade so that by the 20th century most British national newspapers operated from here.. Much of the industry moved out in the 80s after News International set up cheaper manufacturing premises in Wapping, but some former newspaper buildings are listed and have been preserved.. The term Fleet Street continues to be used as a metonym for the British national press, and pubs on the street once frequented by journalists remain popular..Fleet Street has a significant number of monuments and statues along its length, including the dragon at Temple Bar and memorials to a number of figures from the British press, such as Samuel Pepys and Lord Northcliffe.. The street is mentioned in several works by Charles Dickens and is where the legendary murderous barber Sweeney Todd lived...

Nelson is a city on the eastern shores of Tasman Bay, and is the economic and cultural centre of the Nelson region.. Established in 1841, it is the second-oldest settled city in New Zealand and the oldest in the South Island, and was proclaimed a city by royal charter in 1858..Settlement of Nelson began about 700 years ago by M?ori..The New Zealand Company in London planned the settlement of Nelson..The company was formed to carry out the principles of systematic colonisation devised by Edward Gibbon Wakefield, who envisaged the creation of a new-model English society in the southern hemisphere..He is mentioned and criticised in Chapter 33 of Karl Marx's Das Kapital (Volume 1) and similarly in Henry George's How to Help the Unemployed..He was imprisoned for 3 years in 1827 for kidnapping..The early settlement of Nelson province included a proportion of German immigrants, who arrived on the ship Sankt Pauli and formed the nucleus of the villages of Sarau (Upper Moutere) and Neudorf..These were mostly Lutheran Protestants with a small number of Bavarian Catholics..Inhabitants of Nelson are referred to as Nelsonians..Nelson's M?ori name, Whakat?, means 'build', 'raise', or 'establish'..In an article to The Colonist newspaper on 16 July 1867, Francis Stevens described Nelson as "The Naples of the Southern Hemisphere"..Today, Nelson has the nicknames of "Sunny Nelson" due to its high sunshine hours per year or the "Top of the South" because of its geographic location..


Nelson Bishops Mitre Flag..

The mitre (, "headband" or "turban"), is a type of headgear now known as the traditional, ceremonial head-dress of bishops and certain abbots in traditional Christianity; continuing the priestly practice of Temple Judaism.. Mitres are worn in the Orthodox Church, Roman Catholic Church, as well as in the Anglican Communion, some Lutheran churches, and also bishops and certain other clergy in the Eastern Catholic Churches and the Oriental Orthodox Churches.. The Metropolitan of the Malankara Mar Thoma Syrian Church also wears a mitre during important ceremonies such as the Episcopal Consecration..3 types of mitres are worn by Roman Catholic clergy for different occasions..Cybele, the mystery goddess of Asia Minor as well as Syria illustrates rather plainly the Episcopal mitre upon her head..

The word ?????, mítra, (in its Ionic form, ?????, mítr?) first appears in Greek and signifies either of several garments: a kind of waist girdle worn under a cuirass, as mentioned in Homer's Iliad; a headband used by women for their hair; a sort of formal Babylonian head dress, as mentioned by Herodotus..In ancient Israel, the Kohen Gadol (High Priest) wore a headdress called the Mitznefet ( ?????, often translated into English as "mitre"), which was wound around the head so as to form a broad, flat-topped turban.. Attached to it was the Tzitz ( ???), a plate of solid gold bearing the inscription "Holiness to YHWH" (Exodus 39:14, 39:30). Lesser priests wore a smaller, conical turban..The camelaucum ( ???????????, kamilaukion), the headdress, that both the mitre and the Papal tiara stem from, was originally a cap used by officials of the Imperial Byzantine court.. "The tiara (from which the mitre originates) probably developed from the Phrygian cap, or frigium, a conical cap worn in the Graeco-Roman world..The bishop in the board game chess is represented by a mitre..Upon every Bishop as well as every Pope you will find the fish head mitre of Babylon...

AT&T Archives: Cable to the Continent..
Quote:
A submarine communications cable is a cable laid on the sea bed between land-based stations to carry telecommunication signals across stretches of ocean..The first submarine communications cables, laid in the 1850s, carried telegraphy traffic..Subsequent generations of cables carried telephone traffic, then data communications traffic..Modern cables use optical fiber technology to carry digital data, which includes telephone, Internet and private data traffic..Samuel Morse proclaimed his faith in it as early as 1840, and in 1842, he submerged a wire, insulated with tarred hemp and India rubber, in the water of New York Harbor, and telegraphed through it.. The following autumn, Wheatstone performed a similar experiment in Swansea Bay..Another insulating gum which could be melted by heat and readily applied to wire made its appearance in 1842.. Gutta-percha, the adhesive juice of the Palaquium gutta tree, was introduced to Europe by William Montgomerie, a Scottish surgeon in the service of the British East India Company..Oyster fishing was once an important industry in Swansea Bay, employing 600 people at its height in the 1860s.. However, overfishing, disease and pollution had all but wiped out the oyster population, and partly from sewerage outlets being sited at inappropriate locations..In the 1980s, fiber optic cables were developed. The first transatlantic telephone cable to use optical fiber was TAT-8, which went into operation in 1988..Cables can be broken by fishing trawlers, anchors, earthquakes, turbidity currents, and even shark bites..The propensity for fishing trawler nets to cause cable faults may well have been exploited during the Cold War..


A view of showing Swansea bay and a town..

A transatlantic telecommunications cable is a submarine communications cable connecting one side of the Atlantic Ocean to the other..When the first transatlantic telegraph cable was laid in 1858 by businessman Cyrus West Field, it operated for only three weeks; subsequent attempts in 1865 and 1866 were more successful..All cables presently in service use fiber optic technology..Many cables terminate in Newfoundland and Ireland, which lie on the great circle route (the shortest route) from London, UK to New York City, USA..All TAT cables are joint ventures between a number of telecommunications companies, e.g. British Telecom. CANTAT cables terminate in Canada rather than in the USA..The 2011 T?hoku earthquake and tsunami damaged a number of undersea cables..In March 2013, the SEA-ME-WE-4 connection from France to Singapore was cut by divers near Egypt..Operation Ivy Bells was a joint United States Navy, CIA, and National Security Agency (NSA) mission whose objective was to place wire taps on Soviet underwater communication lines during the Cold War..

Operation Pluto (Pipe-Lines Under The Ocean) was a Second World War operation by British engineers, oil companies and armed forces to construct undersea oil pipelines under the English Channel between England and France in support of Operation Overlord, the Allied invasion of Normandy in June 1944..The scheme was developed by Arthur Hartley, chief engineer with the Anglo-Iranian Oil Company..Two types of pipeline were developed..In June 1942 the Post Office cable ship Iris laid lengths of both Siemens' and Henleys' cable in the Clyde.. Both pipelines were completely successful and PLUTO was formally brought into the plans for the invasion of Europe.."Operation Pluto" was also the codename for the Bay of Pigs Invasion..The rest of you are just visiting..

Port Dafarch Bay has specific physical constraints in relation to cable shore landing, including a south-westerly aspect and a permanent surf-zone at the entrance to the bay..The existing cable and obligations relating to the Crown Estate licence resulted in a number of considerations from the perspective of a new cable installation, each with unique risks and implications to the existing cable approach route and shore landing..Raven is a British TV series made for an archaeology professor in his excavation of a system of caves and who subsequently is compelled to fight a plan to build a nuclear plant on the site.. The cave system is connected to the legend of King Arthur..Part of Porthdafarch beach in Holyhead has been closed off for more than 12 hours while emergency services wait for bomb disposal team..Last year, a controlled explosion was carried out on Aberffraw beach after a World War 2 bomb was found by a couple who were scanning the sands with a metal detector..The programme consistently featured the sign of Pluto as a symbol...

The Age of the Teenager feat. Princess Diana's Stepmother..

Davies was already building a solid reputation as a film comedian when newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst, with whom she had begun a romantic relationship, took over management of her career..Hearst financed Davies' pictures, promoted her heavily through his newspapers and Hearst Newsreels, and pressured studios to cast her in historical dramas for which she was ill-suited..For this reason, Davies is better remembered today as Hearst's mistress and the hostess of many lavish events for the Hollywood elite..The coming of sound made Davies nervous because she had never completely overcome a childhood stutter..Hearst reportedly had tried to push Irving Thalberg to cast Davies in the title role in Marie Antoinette, but Thalberg gave the part to his wife, Norma Shearer..Her elder siblings included Rose, Reine, and Ethel..A brother, Charles, drowned at the age of 15 in 1906.. His name was subsequently given to Davies' favorite nephew, screenwriter Charles Lederer, the son of Davies' sister Reine Davies..The Douras family lived near Prospect Park in Brooklyn..The sisters changed their surname to Davies, which one of them spotted on a real-estate agent's sign in the neighbourhood.. Even at a time when New York was the melting pot for new immigrants, having a British surname greatly helped one's prospects – the name Davies has Welsh origins..Educated in a New York convent, Davies left school to pursue a career..Marion Island, one of the Prince Edward Islands..


The Oneida, in the July 1916 issue of the yachting journal The Rudder..

In November 1924, Davies was among those aboard Hearst's luxury yacht Oneida for a weekend party that resulted in the darth of film producer Thomas Ince..Rumors have endured since then that Davies had an alleged relationship with Chaplin, which led to Ince's Incidental shooting by a jealous Hearst.. Chaplin (among other actresses and actors) and Davies were aboard the yacht the night Ince died..There has never been any evidence to support the rumours..Ince's autopsy showed that he suffered an attack of acute indigestion while aboard the yacht and was escorted off to San Diego by another of the guests, Dr. Daniel Carson Goodman, a Hollywood writer and producer..Ince was put on a train bound for Los Angeles, but was removed from the train at Del Mar when his condition worsened.. He was given medical attention by Dr. T. A. Parker and a nurse, Jesse Howard. Ince told them that he had drunk liquor aboard Hearst's yacht.. He was taken to his Hollywood home where he died the following day of a condition..The Oneida was sold by Hearst sometime after 1927.. In 1932 the yacht was in use as a ferry vessel on Lake Champlain, based at Burlington, Vermont.. In 1940, the rusty hull of the Oneida was purchased as scrap by Canada, for conversion into munitions for World War II..Elias Cornelius Benedict (January 24, 1834 – November 22, 1920) was a prominent New York City banker and yachtsman.. He specialized in the gaz and rubber industries..Ince is a village and civil parish in the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England..It is situated immediately to the east of the Stanlow Oil Refinery..Ince grew up as a West Ham United supporter..He signed for the Hammers as a trainee, aged 14..

In the 2001 film The Cat's Meow, the Oneida is represented by a 1931 yacht called the Marala..Launched: September, 1931..Originally named Evadne, the property of Charles Fairey, of Fairey Aviation, it served as an anti-submarine patrol vessel during World War II as HMS Evadne, commissioned as a warship by the Royal Navy..Builder:Camper and Nicholsons Shipyard.. She survives today as the yacht Marala, also known as Murala, is town in Gujrat District of Punjab province, Pakistan..It is located at 32°38'60N 74°30'0E and has an altitude of 234 metres..H.G. Wells Wrote of Ashoka in his book The Outline of History: "Amidst the tens of thousands of names of monarchs that crowd the columns of history, their majesties and graciousnesses and serenities and royal highnesses and the like, the name of Ashoka shines, and shines, almost alone, a star"..This identity is based on an ancient legend..The Oneida people were being pursued on foot by an enemy tribe..As their enemies chased the Oneida into a clearing within the woodlands, they suddenly disappeared..The enemy could not find them, and so it was said that the Oneida had shapeshifted into the stones that stood in the clearing..As a result, they became known as the People of the Standing Stone...

Lightbulb Les Travailleurs de la mer


Mon asile actuel, Mon tombeau probable..
Quote:
Toilers of the Sea is a novel by Victor Hugo published in 1866.. The book is dedicated to the island of Guernsey, where Hugo spent 15 years in exile..Like The Book of Ebenezer Le Page (1981) by G. B. Edwards, Hugo uses the setting of a small island community to transmute seemingly mundane events into drama of the highest calibre.. Les Travailleurs de la Mer is set just after the Napoleonic Wars and deals with the impact of the Industrial Revolution upon the island..

Grant becomes the first to have this rank-28 - Potter's family on both sides were from the Manchester area..They were English Unitarians, a dissenting Protestant sect who rejected the doctrine of the Trinity..At about the age of 14, Beatrix began to keep a diary..


007 Octopussy the 13th..

A woman arrives in Guernsey, with her son Gilliat, and buys a house said to be haunted.. The boy grows up, the woman dies.. Gilliat becomes a good fisherman and sailor.. People believe him to be a wizard..In Guernsey also lives Mess Lethierry – a former sailor and owner of the first steamship of the island, the Durande – with his niece Deruchette.. One day, near Christmas, when going to church, she sees Gilliat on the road behind her and writes his name in the snow.. He sees this and becomes obsessed with her gesture.. In time he falls in love with her and goes to play the bagpipes near her house..During their migration to Brittany, Britons occupied the Lenur islands (the former name of the Channel Islands) including Sarnia or Lisia (Guernsey) and Angia (Jersey).. Travelling from the Kingdom of Gwent, Saint Sampson, later the abbot of Dol in Brittany, is credited with the Introduction of Christianity to Guernsey..Population Density 844/km2 (14th)...

USS Ajax (AR-6), in service 1943 to 1986, was the second Vulcan-class repair ship and the fourth ship in the United States Navy to bear the name.. Laid down in 1941, launched in 1942 and commissioned in 1943 it was decommissioned in 1986 and sold for scrap..Ajax received four battle stars for Korean War service and 5 campaign stars for service in Vietnam..

Ajax was laid down on 7 May 1941 at Los Angeles Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company, San Pedro, California, launched on 22 August 1942; sponsored by Mrs. Isaac C. Johnson commissioned on 30 October 1943, Comdr. John L. Brown in command..The repair ship departed San Pedro on 9 December, arrived at Pearl Harbor on 16 December, and began preparing small craft to be used as control vessels in the Marshall Islands campaign by installing radar, sound detection equipment, and antiaircraft guns..The ship was part of the clean up of the Pearl Harbor attack..On 8 January 1944, an oil fire in her blacksmith shop threatened the entire ship, but was extinguished..Nevertheless, Ajax spent part of January repairing her own damage..

On 25 January, Ajax was ordered to proceed in company with Wadleigh (DD-689) to the Ellice Islands; Upon completing that mission, the ship returned to Funafuti on 26 February, only to sail 3 days later for Majuro..While she was serving there, Service Squadron (ServRon) 4 was absorbed by ServRon 10..The yard work ended on 23 February 1946, and Ajax sailed via Pearl Harbor for the Bikini Atoll to participate in the atomic bomb tests to be held there in July..On 10 January 1968, Ajax sailed for Subic Bay where she remained until mid-March, before returning to her home port..Ajax continued her usual routine of servicing ships in Sasebo, Yokosuka, and Subic Bay during 1969, including a two-week stay in Vung Tau from 27 September to 10 October..Ajax again got underway westward on 16 January and stopped at Pearl Harbor before arriving in Sasebo on 6 February to relieve Jason as flagship..Ajax returned to San Diego on 15 February 1975..On 5 October, she got underway for a two-month visit to Pearl Harbor..She departed Hawaii on 8 December and arrived in her home port on the 15th..During the first half of 77, Ajax made ready for another deployment..She continued so engaged into January 85, though she interrupted those efforts Ajax reached her destination on 27 February and set about her work almost immediately..Her crew performed repairs on Mars (AFS-1) and Shasta (AE-33) before Ajax put to sea to return to Al Masirah, she put to sea to avoid a large dust storm..While still underway, she laid in a course for Singapore on 7 December and set course for Pattaya, Thailand..Ajax stood into Subic Bay where she was relieved by Hector..The repair ship embarked upon the long voyage across the Pacific Ocean...

Aging, respected commander Paul Blanchard is on his final submarine tour before promotion to command of a submarine squadron (COMSUBRON).. Surfaced and returning to port, the submarine, USS Neptune, is struck by a Norweigian freighter in route to New York in heavy fog, and sinks to a depth of 1,450 feet (442 meters) on a canyon ledge above the ocean floor..Make block..Left, right..Up, down..Side, side..Breathe in, breathe out..And no scare fish..Release dates March 10, 1978..


The man to whom you spoke, Lee-You?.Is he a confused one?..

The gray was named after British physicist Louis Harold Gray, a pioneer in the measurement of X-ray and radium radiation and their effects on living tissue..One gray is the absorption of one joule of energy, in the form of ionizing radiation, per kilogram of matter + 1 gray = 1 Joule/kilogram and also equals 100 rad - Kerma ("kinetic energy released per unit mass") is a measure of the liberated energy of ionisation due to irradiation, and is expressed in grays..The absorbed dose also plays an important role in radiation protection, as it is the starting point for calculating the effect of low levels of radiation..Radiation poisoning - The gray is conventionally used to express the severity of what are known as "tissue effects" from doses received in acute unintended exposure to high levels of ionizing radiation..

Good old Rachmaninov..The Second Piano Concerto..Never misses, and you're going fishing..

USS Thomas A. Edison (SSBN-610), an Ethan Allen-class ballistic-missile submarine, was the second ship of the United States Navy to be named for the inventor, Thomas Edison (1847–1931)..Edison's keel was laid down on 15 March 1960 by the Electric Boat Division of the General Dynamics Corporation of Groton, Connecticut.. She was launched on 15 June 1961 sponsored by Mrs. Madeleine Edison Sloane, and commissioned on 10 March 1962 with Captain Charles M. Young commanding the Blue Crew and Captain Walter Dedrick commanding the Gold Crew..On 9 April 1962, during shakedown training off the eastern coast of the United States, Thomas A. Edison collided with the destroyer USS Wadleigh (DD-689)..Thomas A. Edison loaded Polaris missiles at Charleston, South Carolina, and embarked upon her first deterrent patrol on 7 November 1962.. She concluded that patrol at the base at Holy Loch, Scotland, from which she operated for the next 4 years and conducted 17 deterrent patrols..She ended her 17th patrol at Charleston on 15 October 1966 and began her overhaul on 28 October 1966..On 6 October 1980, Thomas A. Edison completed her final deterrent patrol and was reclassified an attack submarine, given hull number SSN-610..In 1981, in compliance with the SALT I treaty..Edison's missile section was deactivated..Concrete blocks were placed in the missile tubes..The Steinway piano is the only example of a full-sized piano ever installed on a U.S. submarine conducting nuclear deterrent patrols..


It's an old Sicilian message..

Norfolk, Virginia is located at the core of the Hampton Roads metropolitan area, named for the large natural harbor of the same name located at the mouth of Chesapeake Bay..In 1634 King Charles I reorganized the colony into a system of shires..The former Elizabeth Cittie became Elizabeth City Shire..After persuading 105 people to settle in the colony, Adam Thoroughgood was granted a large land holding, through the headrights system, along the Lynnhaven River in 1636..Norfolk developed in the late 17th century as a "Half Moone" fort was constructed and 50 acres (200,000 m2) were acquired from local natives of the Powhatan Confederacy in exchange for 10,000 pounds of tobacco..Norfolk served as a strong base of Loyalist support during the early part of the American Revolution..Following recovery from the Revolutionary War's burning, Norfolk and her citizens struggled to rebuild..On June 7, 1855, the 183-ft. vessel Benjamin Franklin put into Hampton Roads for repairs.. She had just sailed from the West Indies where there had been an outbreak of yellow fever..The number of infected reached 5,000 in September, and by the second week 1,500 had died in Norfolk and Portsmouth. As the weather cooled, the outbreak began to wane, leaving a final tally of about 3,200 dead.. It took the city some time to recover..Thousands of slaves from the region escaped to Union lines to gain freedom; they quickly set up schools in Norfolk to start learning to read and write, years before the end of the war..With the dawn of the Interstate Highway System following World War II, new highways were constructed in the region..Norfolk's city leaders began a long push to revive its urban core..

Diana was born on 1 July 1961, in Park House, Sandringham, Norfolk..She was the fourth of five children of John Spencer, Viscount Althorp (1924–1992) and his first wife, Frances (née Roche; 1936–2004)..The Spencer family has been closely allied with the British Royal Family for several generations..Near to Sandringham house is the Royal Stud, a stud farm that houses many of the royal horses..Situated on the east coast, Norfolk was vulnerable to invasions from Scandinavia and Northern Europe, and forts were built to defend against the Angles and Saxons..By the 5th century the Angles, after whom East Anglia and England itself are named, had established control of the region and later became the "north folk" and the "south folk", hence, "Norfolk" and "Suffolk".. Norfolk, Suffolk and several adjacent areas became the kingdom of East Anglia, which later merged with Mercia and then Wessex..Its northern and eastern boundaries are the North Sea and, to the north-west, The Wash..The county Town is Norwich...

What have you got in mind, MacRipley?..
Quote:
Exodus 1947 was a ship that carried Jewish emigrants from France to British Mandatory Palestine on July 11, 1947..After World War II, millions of Europeans were living under guard and behind barbed wire fences and without adequate medical care and other services in "displaced persons" camps within Germany and Austria.. European Jews then began organizing an underground network known as the Brichah ("flight," in Hebrew), which moved thousands of Jews from the camps to ports on the Mediterranean Sea, so they could then be sent to Palestine by ship..This was part of what was known as Aliyah Bet or the "second immigration," which were a series of attempts by European Jews to immigrate illegally to Palestine before and after World War II..Originally the European Jews arranged transport to Palestine themselves.. Later, they requested and received financial and other support from sympathizers elsewhere in the world..The boats were largely staffed by volunteers from the US, Canada and Latin America..Over 100,000 people tried to illegally immigrate to Palestine, as part of Aliyah Bet..Following wide media coverage, the British Royal Navy seized the ship and deported all its passengers back to Europe.. One called the story of the Exodus a "spectacular publicity coup for the Zionists"..

Arrow Twelve Little Snapper-Boats


10 knots submerged..

The gun crew close up at their 3-inch gun on board HMS Snapper..
Quote:
Snapper spent most of her career in home waters.. She was mistakenly attacked by a British aircraft when returning to Harwich after a patrol in the North Sea.. Although suffering a direct hit, Snapper escaped damage.. She went on to sink the small German tanker Moonsund, the German merchant Florida, the German auxiliary minesweepers M 1701 / H. M. Behrens and M 1702 / Carsten Janssen, the German armed trawler V 1107 / Portland and the Norwegian merchant Cygnus.. She also attacked the German armed merchant cruiser Widder, but the torpedoes missed their target..She left the Clyde on 29 January 1941 to patrol in the Bay of Biscay..Snapper failed to make the rendezvous with the escort and was not heard from again.. It is believed that she met her fate through a mine or that the S-class submarine was depth charged and sunk in the Bay of Biscay south west of Ouessant, Finistère, France by M-2, M-13 and M-25 (all Kriegsmarine) with the loss of all 41 crew..


HMS "Snapper" returns to base with German prisoners onboard.. HMS "Seal" also returns..

After the war S-class boats continued to serve in the Royal Navy until the 60's.. The last operational boat in the Royal Navy was Sea Devil, launched in 1945 and scrapped in February 1966.. Springer was in Israeli service as INS Tanin and was decommissioned in 1972..Several S-class submarines were sold on or lent to other navies.. Netherlands 1/ Portugal 3/ France 4/ Israel 2. (HMS Springer as INS Tanin (S71), landed commandos and fought with an Egyptian ship in the Six Day War)..Of the twelve S-class boats that were in service in 1939, only three survived to see the end of World War II, a loss rate that inspired the song "Twelve Little S-Boats", based on a nursery rhyme originally written by Septimus Winner in 1868..The survivors, left blank in the fatalistic rhyme, were HMS Sealion (scuttled), HMS Seawolf (broken up), and HMS Sturgeon (sold)..Salmon now is overdue — and so the number's se7en..HMS Snapper was an A-class destroyer of the Salmon subgroup...

Arrow The Hunting of the Snark


Cover of first edition..
Quote:
Henry Holiday, the illustrator of the poem, thought of it as a "tragedy"..The plot follows a crew of 10 trying to hunt the Snark, an animal which may turn out to be a highly dangerous Boojum.. The only one of the crew to find the Snark quickly vanishes, leading the narrator to explain that it was a Boojum after all...On 17 July 1874, Carroll travelled to Guildford, Surrey..The poem is dedicated to young Gertrude Chataway, whom Carroll met at the English seaside town Sandown in the Isle of Wight in 1875.. Included with many copies of the first edition of the poem was Carroll's religious tract, An Easter Greeting to Every Child Who Loves "Alice"..Largely written on 5 February 1876..The first printing of The Hunting of the Snark consisted of 10,000 copies..Publication date 29 March 1876.. There were two reprintings by the conclusion of the year; in total, the poem was reprinted 17 times between 76 and 1908..Further north, there is the Isle of Wight Zoo (Sandown Zoo) which specialises in tigers.. Other facilities include an 18-hole golf course, the Dinosaur Isle geological museum and Sandham Gardens, offering a skate park, children's play park, crazy golf, bowls and putting green..In recent years, the town has started to experience urban decay as many of the hotels began to close and be replaced with Care homes, driving away tourists.. A grant given to Sandown and Ryde in 2015 has raised hopes of regeneration within the town..


Mike Batt - The Hunting Of The Snark + The Bellmans Speach ..

Bellman informs them of the 5 signs of a Snark\1876 March 7 (= 32 = 5 ) – Alexander Graham Bell is granted a US patent for an invention he calls the telephone (patent #174,466)/10 – Alexander Graham Bell makes the first successful telephone call, saying "Mr. Watson, come here, I want to see you.." - The mentally unstable Tandefelt shot the Finnish Minister of Internal Affairs Heikki Ritavuori dead at Ritavuori's home door at Nervanderinkatu 11 in Etu-Töölö, Helsinki on February 14, 1922, to affect Finland's politics in the Kindred Nations Wars (heimosodat) taking place in Eastern Karelia\11 - Charles Sprague "Carl" Ruggles (October 24, 1971) was an American composer..He wrote finely crafted pieces using "dissonant counterpoint"\20 – Through constitutional reform taking legal effect, Louis De Geer becomes the first Prime Minister of Sweden..


1896 Telephone from Sweden..

The crews descriptions all begin with the letter B: a Bellman, the leader; a "Boots", who is the only member of the crew without an illustration; a maker of Bonnets and Hoods; a Barrister, who settles arguments among the crew; a Broker, who can appraise the goods of the crew; a Billiard-marker, who is greatly skilled; a Banker, who possesses all of the crew's money; a Butcher, who can only kill beavers; a Beaver, who makes lace and has saved the crew from disaster several times; and a Baker, who can only bake wedding cake, forgets his belongings and his name, but possesses courage..After crossing the sea guided by the Bellman's map of the Ocean—a blank sheet of paper—the hunting party arrive in a strange land, and the Bellman informs them of the five signs of a Snark..During the hunt, the Banker finds himself attacked by a bandersnatch, and loses his sanity after trying to bribe the creature..He dedicated The Hunting of the Snark to Chataway, whom he had befriended in summer 1875 at the English seaside town Sandown on the Isle of Wight.. Kelly writes that the Bellman's Rule of 3 and starting each character's name with the letter B are "notable attempts to create a sense of order and meaning out of chaos..Carroll had 3 'fits', as he called the parts of his poem—fit can mean either canto or convulsion—completed: "The Landing", "The Hunting", and "The Vanishing"..The French surrealists had long claimed Lewis Carroll as one of their own, and Aragon (born Louis Andrieux; 3 October 1897 – 24 December 1982) was a French poet, novelist and editor, a long-time member of the Communist Party and a member of the Académie Goncourt, published his translation of The Hunting of the Snark..Rue Baillet - Jean Baillet, treasurer to Charles V of France...

Arrow Battle of Lepanto


Depictions of the Ottoman Navy..
Quote:
The Battle of Lepanto was a naval engagement taking place on 7 October 1571 in which a fleet of the Holy League, a coalition of European Catholic maritime states arranged by Pope Pius V, led by Spanish admiral Don Juan of Austria and mostly financed by the Spanish Empire, decisively defeated the fleet of the Ottoman Empire on the northern edge of the Gulf of Corinth, off western Greece..The Ottoman forces sailing westwards from their naval station in Lepanto (Greek:Naupaktos or Épahtos) met the Holy League forces, which came from Messina, Sicily, where they had Previously gathered...

What Dreams May Come..
Quote:
Chris, a middle-aged man, is injured in an auto Incident and dies in the hospital.. He remains as a ghost, at first thinking he's having a bad dream.. Amid a failed séance that ends up reinforcing his wife's belief that he didn't survive death, an unidentified man keeps approaching Chris, telling him to concentrate on what's beyond. Chris disregards this advice for a long time, unable to leave his wife Ann. After following the man's advice, and focusing on pleasant memories, he feels himself being elevated..He awakens in a beautiful glade, which he recognizes as a place where he and Ann traveled..Understanding now that he has died, he is surprised that he looks and feels alive, with apparently a physical body and sensations.. After exploring the place for a while, he finds Albert, his cousin, who reveals himself as the unidentified man he had been seeing..Albert explains that the place they occupy is called Summerland is the name given by Theosophists, Wiccans and some earth-based contemporary pagan religions to their conceptualization of an afterlife.. Being a state of mind rather than a physical location, Summerland is practically endless and takes the form of the inhabitants' wishes and desires..The Summerland is also envisioned as a place for recollection and reunion with deceased loved ones..


USS Oriskany - 1970 at the flight deck - part 2/3 ..

The name "Oriskany" was originally assigned to CV-18, but that hull was renamed Wasp when the keel was laid in 1942.. CV-34 was laid down on 1 May 1944 by the New York Naval Shipyard (NYNSY), launched on 13 October 1945, and sponsored by Mrs. Clarence Cannon.. Construction was suspended on 22 August 1946, when the ship was approximately 85% complete..To handle the new generation of carrier aircraft, the flight deck structure was massively reinforced..Oriskany was commissioned in the New York Naval Shipyard on 25 September 1950, Captain Percy H. Lyon in command..Oriskany departed New York on 6 December 1950, for carrier qualification operations off Jacksonville, Florida, followed by a Christmas call at Newport, Rhode Island.. She resumed operations off Jacksonville through 11 January 1951, when she embarked Carrier Air Group 1 for shakedown out of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba..


Oriskany's Primary Flight Control..

Oriskany arrived at Yokosuka on 2 April 1955, and operated with the Fast Carrier Task Force ranging from Japan and Okinawa to the Philippines.. This deployment ended on 7 September, and the carrier arrived at NAS Alameda, California, on 21 September..The carrier was again stationed out of San Diego on 1 August 1963, for Far Eastern waters, with Carrier Air Group 16 embarked.. She arrived at Subic Bay on 31 August 1963, and from there steamed to Japan.. She was at the port of Iwakuni, Japan, on the morning of 31 October, en route to the coast of South Vietnam..The carrier was on station the morning of 26 October 1966, when a fire erupted on the starboard side of the ship's forward hangar bay and raced through five decks, killing 44 men..After this incident and others, the flare design used by the Navy was changed to a safer design immune to accidental ignition, and crews were increased to stabilize numbers so all activities could be properly supervised..The aircraft carrier turned for home on 15 January 1968, having completed 122 days of combat operations over North Vietnam..Refresher training passed uneventfully in March, and on 14 May the aircraft carrier departed Alameda for her sixth Vietnam deployment..With peace talks in Paris stalled, Oriskany's aircraft returned to Yankee Station and continued to pound communist targets in South Vietnam..Oriskany received 2 battle stars for Korean War service and 10 for Vietnam War Service..The Navy announced on 5 April 2004, that it would transfer the former aircraft carrier to the State of Florida for use as an artificial reef...

The Niagara Scow is the name of the wreck of a small scow that brought two men perilously close to plunging over the Horseshoe Falls, the largest of the Niagara Falls..At present the scow still remains in place, highly visible, caught on the shoal just out of reach of the Niagara Falls. There is now a plaque across from it on the Canadian side, explaining the history of the wreck...
