Lightbulb First Flight 23 August 1954


Quote:
The Lockheed C-130 Hercules is a 4-engine turboprop military transport aircraft designed and built originally by Lockheed, now Lockheed Martin.. Capable of using unprepared runways for takeoffs and landings, the C-130 was originally designed as a troop, medical evacuation, and cargo transport aircraft. The versatile airframe has found uses in a variety of other roles, including as a gunship (AC-130), for airborne assault, search and rescue, scientific research support, weather reconnaissance, aerial refueling, maritime patrol, and aerial firefighting. It is now the main tactical airlifter for many military forces worldwide.. Over 40 models and variants of the Hercules serve with more than 60 nations..The C-130 entered service with U.S. in the 1950s, followed by Australia and others. During its years of service, the Hercules family has participated in numerous military, civilian and humanitarian aid operations.. The family has the longest continuous production run of any military aircraft in history. In 2007, the C-130 became the 5th aircraft—after the English Electric Canberra, Boeing B-52 Stratofortress, Tupolev Tu-95, and Boeing KC-135 Stratotanker, all designs with various forms of aviation gas turbine powerplants—to mark 50 years of continuous use with its original primary customer, in this case, the United States Air Force. The C-130 is one of the only military aircraft to remain in continuous production for over 50 years with its original customer, as the updated C-130J Super Hercules...

The Korean War, which began in June 1950, showed that World War II-era piston-engine transports—Fairchild C-119 Flying Boxcars, Douglas C-47 Skytrains and Curtiss C-46 Commandos—were inadequate for modern warfare. Thus, on 2 February 1951, the United States Air Force issued a General Operating Requirement (GOR) for a new transport to Boeing, Douglas, Fairchild, Lockheed, Martin, Chase Aircraft, North American, Northrop, and Airlifts Inc. The new transport would have a capacity for 92 passengers, 72 combat troops or 64 paratroopers in a cargo compartment that was approximately 41 feet (12 m) long, 9 feet (2.7 m) high, and 10 feet (3.0 m) wide... Unlike transports derived from passenger airliners, it was to be designed from the ground-up as a combat transport with loading from a hinged loading ramp at the rear of the fuselage.. This innovation for military cargo aircraft was first pioneered, known as the Trapoklappe, on the World War II German Junkers Ju 252 and Ju 352 "Hercules" transport prototypes...



The first flight of the YC-130 prototype was made on 23 August 1954 from the Lockheed plant in Burbank, California. The aircraft, serial number 53-3397, was the second prototype, but the first of the two to fly. The YC-130 was piloted by Stanley Beltz and Roy Wimmer on its 61-minute flight to Edwards Air Force Base; Jack Real and Dick Stanton served as flight engineers. Kelly Johnson flew chase in a Lockheed P2V Neptune..The initial production model, the C-130A, was powered by Allison T56-A-9 turboprops with three-blade propellers and originally equipped with the blunt nose of the prototypes. Deliveries began in December 1956, continuing until the introduction of the C-130B model in 1959. Some A models were re-designated C-130D after being equipped with skis.. The newer C-130B had ailerons with increased boost—3,000 psi (21 MPa) versus 2,050 psi (14 MPa)—as well as uprated engines and 4-bladed propellers that were standard until the J-model's introduction..As the C-130A became operational with Tactical Air Command (TAC), the C-130's lack of range became apparent and additional fuel capacity was added in the form of external pylon-mounted tanks at the end of the wings..The United States Coast Guard employs the HC-130H for long range search and rescue, drug interdiction, illegal migrant patrols, homeland security, and logistics..The equivalent model for export to the UK is the C-130K, known by the Royal Air Force (RAF) as the Hercules C.1. The C-130H-30 (Hercules C.3 in RAF service) is a stretched version of the original Hercules, achieved by inserting a 100 in (2.54 m) plug aft of the cockpit and an 80 in (2.03 m) plug at the rear of the fuselage. A single C-130K was purchased by the Met Office for use by its Meteorological Research Flight, where it was
classified as the Hercules W.2...

This aircraft was heavily modified (with its most prominent feature being the long red and white striped atmospheric probe on the nose and the move of the weather radar into a pod above the forward fuselage). This aircraft, named Snoopy, was withdrawn in 2001 and was then modified by Marshall of Cambridge Aerospace as flight-test bed for the A400M turbine engine, the TP400. The C-130K is used by the RAF Falcons for parachute drops. Three C-130K (Hercules C Mk.1P) were upgraded and sold to the Austrian Air Force in 2002..The MC-130E Combat Talon was developed for the USAF during the Vietnam War to support special operations missions throughout Southeast Asia, and spawned both an MC-130H Combat Talon II as well as a family of other special missions aircraft. 37 of the earliest models currently operating with the Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) are scheduled to be replaced by new-production MC-130J versions. The EC-130 Commando Solo is another special missions variant within AFSOC, albeit operated solely by an AFSOC-gained wing in the Pennsylvania Air National Guard, and is a psychological operations/information operations (PSYOP/IO) platform equipped as an aerial radio station and television stations able to transmit messaging over commercial frequencies..The RC-130 is a reconnaissance version. A single example is used by the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force, the aircraft having originally been sold to the former Imperial Iranian Air Force..The Lockheed L-100 (L-382) is a civilian variant, equivalent to a C-130E model without military equipment. The L-100 also has 2 stretched versions..The first production aircraft, C-130As were first delivered beginning in 1956 to the 463d Troop Carrier Wing at Ardmore AFB, Oklahoma and the 314th Troop Carrier Wing at Sewart AFB, Tennessee. Six additional squadrons were assigned to the 322d Air Division in Europe and the 315th Air Division in the Far East. Additional aircraft were modified for electronics intelligence work and assigned to Rhein-Main Air Base, Germany while modified RC-130As were assigned to the Military Air Transport Service (MATS) photo-mapping division..In the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965, the Pakistan Air Force modified/improvised several aircraft for use as heavy bombers, and attacks were made on Indian bridges and troop concentrations with some successes. No aircraft were lost in the operations, though one was slightly damaged...During the late 1960s, the U.S. was eager to get information on Chinese nuclear capabilities. After the failure of the Black Cat Squadron to plant operating sensor pods near the Lop Nur Nuclear Weapons Test Base using a Lockheed U-2, the CIA developed a plan, named Heavy Tea, to deploy 2 battery-powered sensor pallets near the base..The C-130 was also used in the 1976 Entebbe raid in which Israeli commando forces carried a surprise assault to rescue 103 passengers of an airliner hijacked by Palestinian and German terrorists at Entebbe Airport, Uganda..During the Falklands War (Spanish: Guerra de las Malvinas) of 1982, Argentine Air Force C-130s undertook highly dangerous, daily re-supply night flights as blockade runners to the Argentine garrison on the Falkland Islands..During the Gulf War of 1991 (Operation Desert Storm), the C-130 Hercules was used operationally by the U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps, along with the air forces of Australia, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, South Korea and the UK. The MC-130 Combat Talon variant also made the first attacks using the largest conventional bombs in the world, the BLU-82 "Daisy Cutter" and GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb, also known as the MOAB..During the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 and the ongoing support of the International Security Assistance Force (Operation Enduring Freedom), the C-130 Hercules has been used operationally by Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, South Korea, Spain, the UK and the United States..The U.S. Forest Service developed the Modular Airborne FireFighting System for the C-130 in the 1970s, which allows regular aircraft to be temporarily converted to an airtanker for fighting wildfires.[36] In the late 1980s, 22 retired USAF C-130As were removed from storage at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base and transferred to the U.S. Forest Service who then sold them to 6 private companies to be converted into air tankers (see U.S. Forest Service airtanker scandal). After one of these aircraft crashed due to wing separation in flight as a result of fatigue stress cracking, the entire fleet of C-130A air tankers was permanently grounded in 2004 (see 2002 airtanker crashes). C-130s have been used to spread chemical dispersants onto the massive oil slick in the Gulf Coast in 2010...

The 23rd parallel north is a circle of latitude that is 23 degrees north of the Earth's equatorial plane. It crosses Africa, Asia, the Indian Ocean, the Pacific Ocean, North America, the Caribbean and the Atlantic Ocean..At this latitude the sun is visible for 13 hours, 33 minutes during the summer solstice and 10 hours, 43 minutes during the winter solstice..Starting at the Prime Meridian and heading eastwards, the parallel 23° north passes through..23°0′N 68°54′E India Gujarat-Madhya Pradesh-Chhattisgarh-The state was formed on 1 November 2000 by partitioning 16 Chhattisgarhi-speaking southeastern districts of Madhya Pradesh.. Raipur was made its capital city. Chhattisgarh borders the states of Madhya Pradesh in the northwest, Maharastra in the southwest Telangana and Andhra Pradesh in the south, Odisha in the east, Jharkhand in the northeast and Uttar Pradesh in the north.. Currently the state comprises 27 districts-HDI rank 23rd (2005)-Jharkand-The name "Jharkhand" means "The Land of Forests".. Jharkhand accounts for 40% of the mineral resources of India-West Bengal..The origin of the name Bengal (known as Bangla and Bongo in Bengali language) is unknown. One theory suggests that the word derives from "Bang", a Dravidian tribe that settled the region around 1000 BC.. The word might have been derived from the ancient kingdom of Vanga (or Banga). Although some early Sanskrit literature mentions the name, the Region's early history is obscure..

23rd - 100,000 cheering Egyptians welcome Sadat home-from Mid-October, Clinton and the parties held a summit in Sharm El Sheikh, resulting in a Sharm memorandum with understandings to end the violence and renew the security cooperation.. From 18 to 23 December they had negotiatiations, followed by Clinton's presentation of his Parameters, in a last attempt to bring Middle East peace before his second term ended in January 2001.. Although the official statements told, both parties had accepted the Clinton Parameters with Reservations, these reservations in fact meant they rejected them on essential points.. On 2 January 2001, the Palestinians put forward their acceptance with some fundamental objections. Barak accepted the parameters with a 20-page letter of reservations.. A Sharm el-Sheikh summit planned for 28 December did not take place..Clinton's initiative led to the Taba negotiations in January 2001, where the 2 sides published a statement saying they had never been closer to agreement (though such issues as Jerusalem, the status of Gaza, and the Palestinian demand for compensation for refugees and their descendants remained unresolved), but Barak, facing elections, resuspended the talks.. Ehud Barak was to be defeated by Ariel Sharon in 2001..Most of the criticism for the failure of the 2000 Camp David Summit was leveled at Arafat.. Ehud Barak portrays Arafat’s behavior at Camp David as a “performance geared to exact as many Israeli concessions as possible without ever seriously intending to reach a peace settlement or sign an “end to the conflict...

Lightbulb HindLey ley ley



Quote:
Hindley is a town within the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan in Greater Manchester, England... Lying 3 miles (5 km) east of Wigan it covers an area of 1044 hectares. Historically in Lancashire, Hindley (which includes Hindley Green) borders the towns of Ince-in-Makerfield, Aspull, Westhoughton, Atherton and the former borough of Leigh.. In 2001, Hindley had a population of 23,457.. It forms part of the wider Greater Manchester Urban Area..The name Hindley is derived from the Old English hind and leah, meaning a "clearing frequented by hinds or does"..The town is first recorded as Hindele in 1212 and then variously as "Hindeleye" [1259], "Hyndeley" [1285 and 1332],Hindelegh[1301], "Hyndelegh" [1303 and 1375].. The first recorded use of its current spelling, Hindley, was in 1479..Hindley was one of 15 berewicks of the royal manor of Newton before the Norman Conquest in 1066...From the Middle Ages until the 18th century the land was a mixture of pastoral, farming and woodland and the farmers were tenants of a variety of lords. Parish registers from the end of the 17th century reveal that residents were Yeomen, independent farmers who supplemented their income by spinning and weaving. There are also references to Blacksmiths, whitesmiths, nailers and wheelwrights .Hindley was noted for its nail making between the 17th and 19th centuries..The population of Hindley increased during the 19th century from 2,300 in 1811 to 23,000 in 1911 reflecting the transformation of the town from a country village to small, densely populated industrial town. The economic depression of the 1920s and 1930s hit Hindley hard and by the time of the Second World War the population had declined to 19,000..The coal mining and cotton spinning have all disappeared and most residents of Hindley now work in Wigan, Bolton or commute to Manchester or Liverpool..

Hindley was a chapelry, in the parish of Wigan in the Hundred of West Derby, a judicial division of southwest Lancashire.. In 1837 Hindley became part of the Wigan Poor Law Union, which took responsibility for the administration and funding of the Poor Law and made use of buildings on Frog Lane Wigan and at Hindley.. The Local Government Act of 1858 was adopted by the township in 1867 and under the Local Government Act 1894 an Urban District council of fifteen members was constituted.. New council offices were opened in 1904 and Hindley Urban District Council continued until local government reorganisation in 1974 when it became part of the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan..Hindley covers an area 2,527 acres (10.23 km2), mostly pasture and the underlying rocks are the coal measures.. Some ancient woodland remains today in Borsdane Wood which is protected as a Local Nature Reserve. Hindley town centre is approximately 3 miles east of Wigan and adjoins Leigh on its south east side.. The pattern of the stinking roads is little changed from medieval times, the road from Prescot to Bolton, A58, and road linking Ormskirk with Boothstown, the A577 cross near the town centre..Public transport in Hindley is co-ordinated by the Greater Manchester Passenger Transport Executive. There are public transport links by rail from Hindley station to all stops between Southport and Manchester operated by Northern Rail. There are two platforms in use, with the remains of 2 older and disused platforms still in existence..The first chapel was built by public subscription in 1641 on land given by George Green. It was built as a Chapel of ease to Wigan Parish Church with the blessing of the Rector of Wigan, Bishop Bridgeman. The church was originally Puritan, and its first minister, Thomas Tonge, preached the Presbyterian discipline. He was succeeded by William Williamson, and James Bradshaw who was ejected for noncormformity in 1662. The chapel was unused for 6 years.. It was consecrated in 1698 on All Saints' Day. All Saints' Church was rebuilt in 1766 and modifications made in 1863.. It remains much the same as then, with an upper gallery and wide nave. There are windows dedicated to Hindley's families and an east window depicting early English saints...St Peter's Church was built in 1866 and contained an organ by Edmund Schulze since replaced by an electronic organ.. The clock tower contains a set of balls.. The war memorial, outside, was unveiled on 4 November 1922 and was built in a simple style.. St. Paul's Chapel was built in 1815, meetings for worship having been held some years earlier in cottages. Presbyterians built a chapel in 1698, the present congregation is Unitarian in doctrine. St John's Methodist Church at the top of Market Street was built in 1868..The Church of Christ in Argyle Street from mid-1800s to present..Nathaniel Eckersley (1815–1892) left a legacy as banker, mill owner, mine owner, J.P., M.P., mayor and magistrate. He formed the 21st Lancashire Rifle Volunteers as Captain.. In 1878, he served as High Sheriff of Lancashire.. He married on twice, his first wife died at an early age leaving 2 daughters. His 2nd marriage provided 3 sons, the youngest lost his life in Burma..The cemetery on Castle Hill Road was opened in 1879 and is divided into denominational sections and of note is the amount of masonic gravestones to be found throughout.. Hindley has a long masonic tradition that still survives today..We go to and live in the little red schoolhouses..In Little Britain, it's little red-brick schoolhouses, as the Eli te refer to them. Of course, their universities are granite stone, whereas we the ordinary muck go to the red-bricked schools and universities...and live in little red brick houses...The Gas van or gas wagon (Russian: душегубка (dushegubka); German: Gaswagen) was a vehicle reequipped as a mobile gas chamber.. The vehicle had an air-tight compartment for victims, into which exhaust fumes were transmitted while the engine was running..It was later widely implemented as an
extermination method in Nazi Germany to kill enemines of the regime, mostly Jews Ed..

Nathaniel Eckersley (1815 – 15 February 1892) was an English mill-owner, banker and Conservative Party politician from Standish Hall, near Wigan in Lancashire.. He sat in the House of Commons for three years in the 1860s, and 2 years in the 1880s..His uncle was Colonel Nathaniel Eckersley, from Laurel House in Hindley, who served with the Duke of Wellington and at the military station established in Manchester after the Peterloo Massacre..Shortly after the meeting began local magistrates called on the military authorities to arrest Hunt and several others on the hustings with him, and to disperse the crowd. Cavalry charged into the crowd with sabres drawn, and in the ensuing confusion, 15 people were killed and 400–700 were injured.. The massacre was given the name Peterloo in an ironic comparison to the Battle of Waterloo, which had taken place 4 years earlier..He was High Sheriff of Lancashire in 1878, and in that capacity helped to organise a fund for the dependants of the victims of the explosion on 7 June 1878 at the Wood Pit Colliery in Haydock, where more than 200 miners were killed..When Wigan's Conservative MP Lord Lindsay succeeded to his father's peerage in 1880, and Eckersley was asked to stand at the by-election in January 1881, but refused.. Following the death on December 1883 of Wigan's other Conservative MP Thomas Knowles, Eckersley was returned unopposed at the resulting by-election on 21 December 1883.. He held the seat until when Wigan's parliamentary representation was reduced from two seats to one by the Redistribution of Seats Act 1885, and did not contest the 1885 general election..Hind A female deer, especially a red deer-Hind and al-Hind, a Persian and Arabic name for India..Hind is a lunar impact crater that lies to the southeast of the walled plain Hipparchus, and due east of the crater Halley.. The rim of Hind is relatively free of wear and distortion, except for a break at the north rim. The floor of Hind is relatively uneven, however, compared to the interior of Halley.. Hind and the craters Hipparchus C and Hipparchus L form a line with diminishing diameters that point to the northeast..The Mil Mi-24 (Миль Ми-24, NATO reporting name: Hind) is a large helicopter gunship and attack helicopter and low-capacity troop transport with room for 8 passengers..The British Hawker Hind was a Royal Air Force light bomber of the inter-war years produced by Hawker Aircraft. It was developed from the Hawker Hart day-bomber introduced in 1931..In Greek mythology, the Ceryneian Hind (Greek: ἡ Κερυνῖτις ἔλαφος), also called Cerynitis or the Golden Hind, was an enormous hind (deer), who lived in Keryneia, Greece.. It was sacred to Artemis, the chaste goddess of the hunt, animals and unmarried women.. It had golden antlers like a stag and hooves of bronze or brass, and it was said that it could outrun an arrow in flight. The capture of the hind was one of the labours of Heracles (Hercules)...

Flatbush Avenue – Brooklyn College is the southern terminal station on the IRT Nostrand Avenue Line of the New York City Subway. It is located at the intersection of Flatbush and Nostrand Avenues in Brooklyn, locally called "The Junction", and is served by the 2 train at all times and the 5 train on weekdays. It is the closest subway station to Brooklyn College and Midwood High School..The 1996 cast bronze relief artwork here is called Flatbush Floogies by Muriel Castanis..This underground station, opened on August 23, 1920, is the only "dead-end" terminal station in the subway system that does not have a center island platform. It was built with two side platforms and two tracks to allow for a planned, but not carried out extension of the IRT Nostrand Avenue Line south towards Voorhies Avenue in Sheepshead Bay.. In various plans discussed over the years, the IRT Nostrand Avenue Line would be extended along Flatbush Avenue to Avenue U, or along Nostrand Avenue to Voorhies Avenue.. 21st Street – Queensbridge on the IND 63rd Street Line was also built like this before being connected to the IND Queens Boulevard Line in December 2001..The platforms are connected at the south end just past the bumper blocks (forming a "U" shape),where there is an unstaffed exit containing two HEET turnstiles and one exit-only turnstile. The single staircase here goes up to the west side of Nostrand Avenue north of Avenue H. The station's main entrance is on the Track 1 (eastern) platform..Street stairs from either eastern corners of Nostrand and Flatbush Avenues lead to where the full-time token booth and 2 separate banks of turnstiles are. The single elevator from street level down to fare control is at the southeast corner. There is another entrance on the platform of Track 2 (west side). This entrance has 2 sets of street stairs adjacent to each other at the northwest corner of Flatbush Avenue and Nostrand Avenue. The token booth and turnstile bank are open weekdays only.. A single HEET turnstile provides access to this entrance other times..At all 3 entrances beyond fare control, lit-up signs indicate which train is the next to depart from the station..The station platforms have a lot of doors for various non-public uses, including crew quarters. There are public restrooms along Track 1 just within the station's main entrance. The columns separating the 2 tracks are painted light-blue...

An island platform (also center platform, centre platform) is a station layout arrangement where a single platform is positioned between 2 tracks within a railway station, tram stop or transitway interchange.. Island platforms are popular on twin-track routes and can provide for services in both directions from a single platform requiring only one set of supporting services (toilets, ticket offices, kiosks)..They are also useful within larger stations where local and express services for the same direction of travel can be provided from opposite sides of the same platform thereby simplifying transfers between the 2..An alternative arrangement is to position side platforms on either side of the tracks..In southern New Jersey and Philadelphia, PATCO uses island platforms in all of its 13 stations, to facilitate one-person train operation..In New York City's subway system, unused sides can be found at Lexington Avenue – 63rd Street and at Bowling Green.. (The former has an island platform for an unused cross-platform interchange; the latter has a side platform in addition to its island platform, making one side of the island platform unnecessary.).. In Jersey City, the Newport PATH station has the same configuration as Bowling Green—1 side platform and 1 island platform...

Lightbulb HMS Terrapin



Quote:
HMS Terrapin was a British submarine of the 3rd group of the T class.. She was built as P323 by Vickers Armstrong, Barrow and Belliss and Morcom Ltd, and launched on 31 August 1943. So far she has been the only ship of the Royal Navy to bear the name Terrapin, after the animal of that name..Terrapin was then assigned to the Pacific Far East in mid 1944. She opened her career by bombarding Japanese installations at Gunung Sitoli (Nias Island), western Sumatra.. She also sank a Japanese coaster with gunfire and damaged another. She went on to sink the Japanese auxiliary netlayer Kumano Maru, the Japanese minesweeper W 5, and 10 Japanese sailing vessels, damaging another..She was damaged on 19 May 1945 by depth charges from Japanese escort vessels while attacking an escorted tanker.. She escaped and returned to Fremantle, Australia.. She was declared a constructive total loss on return to harbour, and was scrapped in June 1946..In 1844, Belliss invited Royal Navy engineer Alfred Morcom to join the firm as a partner. Previously chief engineer at Sheerness dockyard, he had gained a first class certificate in steam engineering at the Navy's training college. Up to this point, Belliss and Morcom had specialised in producing electrical generator sets, consisting of a steam engine paired with a conjoined dynamo, to create electricity for electrical power companies, councils, hospitals, industrial premises and water and sanitation works. With the addition of Morcom, it began selling into the marine market..Post World War II, the company bought the bombed-out and derelict former works of James Archdale and Co., and brought into operation a new steel shop..The genus name Terrapene was coined by Merrem in 1820 as a genus separate from Emys for those species which had a sternum which was separated into 2 or 3 divisions and which could move these Parts independently...

Charles Frederick "Charlie" Wilson (30 June 1932 – 23 April 1990),was an English career criminal.. A member of the Great Train Robbery gang, of which he was treasurer, he was killed by a hitman on a bicycle in 1990 whilst living in Marbella, Spain...From 1948 to 1950 he was called up for National Service, and in 1955 he married Patricia (Pat) Osbourne, with whom he had 3 children..In 1960, Wilson began to work with Bruce Reynolds and planned to get into the criminal big league.. In 1962, a gang lead by Reynolds stole £62,000 in a security van robbery at London Heathrow Airport. They then attempted to rob a Royal Mail train at Swindon, which netted only £700.. But Reynolds, now looking for his career-criminal defining moment, started planning his next train robbery over a period of 3 months..Reynolds organised a gang of 17 men to undertake the 1963 Great Train Robbery...Wilson was the gang's treasurer who gave each of the robbers their cut of the haul: £150,000 each. He was captured quickly, and during the trial at Aylesbury Crown Court in April 1964 he got the nickname "the silent man" as he refused to say anything at all.. Jailed for 30 years, he was held at HMP Winson Green, where after just 4 months on 12 August 1964, he arranged for a 3 man gang to break-in and break him out..Having successfully evaded capture for four years, Wilson was caught on 24 January 1968, after his wife telephoned her parents in England, thus enabling Scotland Yard to track them down.. Returned to England, Wilson served 10 more years in the train robbers secure unit at HMP Durham. He was the final train robber to emerge from prison in 1978...Engaged to launder some of the proceeds from the Brink's-MAT robbery, he lost the investors £3 million. On 23 April 1990, a young South London man knocked on the front door of his hacienda north of Marbella, and shot Wilson and his pet German shepherd dog at point-blank range, before riding off down the hill on a yellow bicycle.. Over the next three years, four more shootings were connected to the Brink’s-MAT raid.. In 2007, supergrass Michael Michael claimed to know who the killer was, but police made no arrest..Marbella is situated on the Mediterranean Sea, between Málaga and the Gibraltar Strait, in the foothills of the Sierra Blanca. The municipality covers an area of 117 square kilometres (45 sq mi) crossed by highways on the coast, which are its main entrances..The city also has a significant archaeological heritage, several museums and performance spaces, and a cultural calendar with events ranging from reggae concerts to opera performances..The Marbella municipality occupies a strip of land that extends along 44 kilometres (27 miles) of coastline of the Penibético region, sheltered by the slopes of the coastal mountain range, which includes the Bermeja, Palmitera, Royal, White and Alpujata sub-ranges...

King Fahd of Saudi Arabia.. His entourage used to spend up to 5 million euros a day in Marbella..In the eastern part of the municipality in the district of Las Chapas is the site of Rio Real, situated on a promontory near the mouth of the river of the same name. Here traces of Phoenician habitation dating to the early 7th century BC were discovered in excavations made during an archaeological expedition led by Pedro Sánchez in 1998.. Bronze Age utensils including plates, carinated bowls, lamps and other ceramics of Phoenician and indigenous Iberian types have been found, as well as a few Greek examples. There are 2 ancient watchtowers, the Torre Río Real (Royal River Tower) and the Torre Ladrones (Tower of Thieves)..The 27 kilometres (17 miles) of coastline within the limits of Marbella is divided into 24 beaches with different features; however, due to expansion of the municipality, they are all now semi-urban. They generally have moderate surf, golden or dark sand ranging through fine, medium or coarse in texture, and some gravel..The Spanish Law on the General Election sets the number of councilors elected according to the municipality's population; the Municipal Corporation of Marbella consists of 27 councilors..Corruption accusations and mayor Gil's further conviction in 2002 for diverting public funds to Atlético led to reappraisal of the city's finances. When Jesús Gil y Gil finally resigned that year, he was succeeded by Julián Muñoz, his right-hand man, a former waiter famous for his romantic involvement with singer Isabel Pantoja, a matador's widow..Her husband, the bullfighter Francisco Rivera Pérez, known professionally as "Paquirri", died in the bullring on 26 September 1984, at the horns of the bull Avispado in Pozoblanco, Córdoba. She has a son with Paquirri named Francisco José Rivera Pantoja, better known as Kiko Rivera or Paquirrín..The investigation, known as the Operation Malaya case, has resulted in numerous convictions and the seizure of goods worth 2.4 million euros.. Today "Marbellan urbanism" is synonymous in Spain with governmental corruption, with as many as 30,000 illegal homes built in the town, without significant educational and health infrastructure..The design of the coat of arms and the flag used by Marbella city hall has been the subject of controversy. According to some sources, GIL changed these symbols without any consensus or heraldic rigor, nor had they been vetted by the Junta de Andalucía, so that different factions claim the rehabilitation of the shield granted by the Catholic Monarchs to the city in 1493 and official recognition of a flag designed in accordance with prevailing standards of vexillology..The 4 ports of Marbella are primarily recreational; although both Puerto Banús and the Puerto de la Bajadilla are permitted to dock cruise ships, neither operates regular service to other ports.. The port of Bajadilla is also home to the fishermen's guild of Marbella and is used for the transport of goods...

Puerto José Banús, more commonly known as Puerto Banús is a marina located in the area of Nueva Andalucía, to the southwest of Marbella, Spain on the Costa del Sol. It was built in May 1970 by José Banús, a local property developer, as a luxury marina and shopping complex. It has since become one of the largest entertainment centres in the Costa del Sol, with 5 million annual visitors, and is popular with international celebrities...Luxury cars like Rolls Royces and high end sports cars like Ferrari's, Lamborghinis and Mercedes Benz are a common sight in the summer months around Marbella and Peurto Banus.. These cars are brought to the eye of the public via huge showrooms and dealerships showcasing the latest supercars..From November 30, 1963, to January 23, 1965, there was no Billboard R&B singles charts..Beginning August 23,1969, the rhythm and blues was replaced in favor of "soul", and the chart was renamed to "Best Selling Soul Singles"...The Malaga Airport is 60 km (37 mi) away. There is a good network of roads and transport services connecting Puerto Banús with adjacent towns and suburbs..From Malaga airport, transport options include car rental, taxi, or bus. The main road A-7 also known as the Autovia del Mediterraneo on its way to Puerto Banus has the toll road or the non toll road which is worth taking because of the beautiful views from the Costa..Its streets are lined with expensive luxury boutiques like Christian Dior, Gucci, Bvlgari, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, and others..

The M23 is a motorway in the United Kingdom. The motorway runs from south of Hooley in Surrey, where it splits from the A23, to Pease Pottage, south of Crawley in West Sussex where it rejoins the A23.. The northern end of the motorway starts at junction 7 on what is effectively a 2-mile (3.2 km) spur north from junction 7 of the M25 motorway (junction 8 on the M23). From Hooley it runs for 17 miles (27 km) past Redhill, Gatwick Airport and Crawley..The motorway was constructed between 1972 and 1975, at the same time as the southern section of the M25 from Godstone to Reigate (M25 junctions 6 to 8).. The current northern terminus at junction 7 uses the original sliproads to meet the A23 and a flyover above the junction built for the onward northern continuation remains unused..The M23 was planned to relieve congestion on the A23 through Streatham, Thornton Heath, Purley and Coulsdon in south London and was originally intended to terminate in Streatham Vale at a junction with the controversial London Ringways Plan's Ringway 2 (the intended replacement of the South Circular Road (A205))...

"Tomorrow Comes Today" is a song from alternative rock virtual band Gorillaz's self-titled debut album Gorillaz and was their first release when issued as an EP in November 2000. The first 3 songs from the EP ended up on their debut album, however, "Latin Simone" was heavily edited, and dubbed into Spanish, for the album release. The new version was sung by Ibrahim Ferrer, and renamed "Latin Simone (¿Que Pasa Contigo?)". The original version is sung by 2D (voiced by Damon Albarn) and appears along with "12D3" on the later-released compilation album G Sides.; The song itself was also the 4th and final single from that album, released on 25 February 2002.. It peaked at number 33 on the UK Singles Chart. A demo version of the song, "I Got Law" was included as a bonus track of the Japanese edition of 13 by Blur, Damon Albarn's other musical project...

The Twilight Zone tragedy occurred when a Bell UH-1 Iroquois helicopter crashed on July 23, 1982 at Indian Dunes in Valencia, Santa Clarita, California, during the making of Twilight Zone: The Movie. The crash killed 3 people on the ground: actor Vic Morrow and 2 child actors, Myca Dinh Le and Renee Shin-Yi Chen; and injured the 6 passengers.. The incident led to years of civil and criminal action, and was directly responsible for the introduction of new procedures and safety standards within the filmmaking industry..In the movie, Morrow's character is a white male bigot who travels back in time to suffer through various eras of persecution, such as Nazi-occupied Europe and the racial segregation of the American South during the mid-20th century.. He then finds himself in the Vietnam War, where he decides to protect some Vietnamese children from American troops..Director John Landis broke California's child labor laws by hiring two child actors, Myca Dinh Le and Renee Shin-Yi Chen, without the required permits.. Landis and several other staff members were also responsible for a number of labor violations connected with other people involved in the accident, all of which came to light after the incident had occurred...

The helicopter was piloted by Vietnam veteran Dorcey Wingo..During the filming of a scene he stationed his helicopter 25 ft from the ground and, while hovering near a large mortar-effect, he turned the aircraft 180° to the left for the next camera shot..The effect was detonated while the helicopter's tail-rotor was still above it, causing it to fail and detach from the tail. The low-flying helicopter spun out of control and crashed on top of Morrow and the 2 children.. All 3 were killed, with Morrow and one child being decapitated by the helicopter's rotor blade..At the subsequent trial, the defense claimed that the explosions were detonated at the wrong time, "causing an unforeseeable accident." Randall Robinson, an assistant cameraman, testified that production manager Dan Allingham told Wingo "That's too much. Let's get out of here" when the explosions were detonated, but Landis shouted over the radio: "Get lower, lower. Get over." Robinson said that Wingo tried to leave the area but "we lost our control and regained it and then I could feel something let go and we began spinning around in circles".. Stephen Lydecker, also a camera operator, testified that Landis had earlier "shrugged off" warnings about the stunt with the comment "We may lose the helicopter." While Lydecker acknowledged that Landis may have been joking when he made the remark, he said: "I learned not to take anything the man said as a joke. It was his attitude. He didn't have time for suggestions from anybody"..The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) had only recently instigated regulations, in March that year, to define how aircraft were to be regulated during film and television productions; helicopters were not regulated though, as it only covered fixed-wing aircraft. As a result of this accident, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) recommended that the terms be extended to apply to all types of aircraft.. The NTSB conclusion recommended that the FAA should: "Extend the terms of FAA Order 8440.5A Section 5, Waiver of Section 91.79(a) and (c), Motion Picture and Television Flight Operations Manual, to require an FAA-approved flight
operations manual for all types of aircraft"...

The Bell UH-1 Iroquois (unofficially Huey) is a military helicopter powered by a single turboshaft engine, with a 2-bladed main rotor and tail rotor. The helicopter was developed by Bell Helicopter to meet the United States Army's requirement for a medical evacuation and utility helicopter in 1952, and first flew on 20 October 1956. Ordered into production in March 1960, the UH-1 was the first turbine-powered helicopter to enter production for the United States military, and more than 16,000 have been produced worldwide..The first combat operation of the UH-1 was in the service of the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. The original designation of HU-1 led to the helicopter's nickname of Huey.. In September 1962, the designation was changed to UH-1, but "Huey" remained in common use.. Approximately 7,000 UH-1 aircraft saw service in Vietnam...On 23 February 1955, the Army announced its decision, selecting Bell to build 3 copies of the Model 204 for evaluation, designated as the XH-40...

http://www.davidicke.com/forum/showp...&postcount=152A pinch is a device which creates, like, a cardiac arrest for any broadband electrical circuitry. Better yet, a pinch is a bomb - now, but without the bomb. See, when a nuclear weapon detonates, it unleashes an electromagnetic pulse which shuts down any power source within its blast radius. Now that tends not to matter in most cases, because the nuclear weapon usually destroys anything you might need power for anyway. But see, a pinch creates a similar electromagnetic pulse, but without the fuss of mass destruction and death. So instead of Hiroshima, you'd be getting the seventeenth century...http://www.davidicke.com/forum/showp...&postcount=744

Cool Galanthus



Quote:
Galanthus (snowdrop; Greek gála "milk", ánthos "flower") is a small genus of about 20 species of bulbous herbaceous plants in the family Amaryllidaceae, subfamily Amaryllidoideae.. Most flower in winter, before the vernal equinox (20 or 21 March in the Northern Hemisphere), but certain species flower in early spring and late autumn..Snowdrops are sometimes confused with their relatives, snowflakes, which are Leucojum and Acis species..

Notable species include..

Common snowdrop, Galanthus nivalis, grows to around 7–15 cm tall, flowering between January and April in the northern temperate zone (January–May in the wild).. Applanate vernation..

Crimean snowdrop, Galanthus plicatus, 30 cm tall, flowering January/March, white flowers, with broad leaves folded back at the edges (explicative vernation)..

Giant snowdrop, Galanthus elwesii, a native of the Levant, 23 cm tall, flowering January/February, with large flowers, the 3 inner segments of which often have a much larger and more conspicuous green blotch (or blotches) than the more common kinds; supervolute vernation..

Galanthus reginae-olgae, from Greece and Sicily, is quite similar in appearance to G. nivalis, but flowers in autumn before the leaves appear. The leaves, which appear in the spring, have a characteristic white stripe on their upper side; applanate vernation..

G. reginae-olgae subsp. vernalis, from Sicily, northern Greece and the south of former Yugoslavia, blooms at the end of the winter with developed young leaves and is thus easily confused with G. nivalis..

The term Levant, which appeared in English in 1497, originally meant the East in general or "Mediterranean lands east of Italy".. It is borrowed from the French levant 'rising', referring to the rising of the sun in the east, or the point where the sun rises.. The phrase is ultimately from the Latin word levare, meaning 'lift, raise'. Similar etymologies are found in Greek Ἀνατολή (Anatolē, cf. Anatolia), in Germanic Morgenland (which means, literally, "morning land"), in Italian (as in "Riviera di Levante", the portion of the Liguria coast east of Genoa), in the Hungarian Kelet, Spanish "Levante" and Catalan "Llevant" (the place of rising).. Most notably, "Orient" and its Latin source oriens meaning "east", is literally "rising", deriving from Latin orior "rise"..The short story The Snowdrop by Hans Christian Andersen follows the fate of a snowdrop
from a bulb striving towards the light to a picked flower placed in a book of poetry...

In 1995 Árpád Pusztai genetically modified potatoes with the GNA gene, which work he discussed on a radio interview in 1998 and published in the Lancet in 1999.. In 1998 said in an interview on a World in Action programme that his group had observed damage to the intestines and immune systems of rats fed the genetically modified potatoes.. He also said "If I had the choice I would certainly not eat it", and that "I find it's very unfair to use our fellow citizens as guinea pigs".. These remarks started the so-called Pusztai affair..Tony Blair's admission that genetically-modified foods are potentially damaging to human health and the environment has been welcomed by pressure groups..Greenpeace, which managed to halt a cargo ship of GM animal feed heading for Liverpool docks after boarding it , called for a ban on all similar imports in future.."Greenpeace has called on the Government to ban GM animal feed imports, which are legally suspect, and to stop all further GM field trials..Genetic engineering, also called genetic modification, is the direct manipulation of an organism's genome using biotechnology. New DNA may be inserted in the host genome by first isolating and copying the genetic material of interest using molecular cloning methods to generate a DNA sequence, or by synthesizing the DNA, and then inserting this construct into the host organism..Fears of “designer babies” and the long-running debate over couples using genetic information to preselect the traits of their offspring have been reignited by a recently awarded patent to direct-to-.consumer genetic test seller 23andMe..

California Pizza Kitchen, known within the food industry as CPK, is a casual dining restaurant chain that specializes in California pizza. The restaurant was started in 1985 by attorneys Rick Rosenfield and Larry Flax in Beverly Hills, California, United States..In 1992, PepsiCo paid nearly $100 million for 67 percent of the chain, with Flax and Rosenfield each receiving $17.5 million.. At the time this was thought to be more than CPK was worth, and PepsiCo pushed to expand faster.. CPK opened 15 stores in 1993 and 28 in the following year, a plan which was a disaster.. PepsiCo had invested 10's of millions of dollars and quickly slowed expansion and moved to cut costs.. PepsiCo executives had started cutting corners by replacing fresh ingredients with frozen vegetables and cheese (a change Flax and Rosenfield reversed later)...The chain is widely known for its innovative and non traditional pizzas, such as the "Original BBQ Chicken Pizza", BLT, Thai Chicken, and Jamaican Jerk Chicken pizzas.They also serve various kinds of pasta, salads, soups, sandwiches and desserts. They have an extensive children's menu for children ages 10 and under which includes a variety of different pizzas, pastas, salad, and chicken..The chain has over 230 locations in 32 US states and 11 other countries, including 26 California Pizza Kitchen ASAP kiosks designed to serve passengers at airports and shopping malls.. The company licensed its name to Kraft Foods to distribute a line of premium frozen pizzas, in 2000.; Nestlé purchased Kraft's pizza lines in 2010..

As for Michael Corleone, he found himself standing, his heart pounding in his chest; he felt a little dizzy. The blood was surging through his body, through all its extremities and pounding against the tips of his fingers, the tips of his toes. All the perfumes of the island came rushing in on the wind, orange, lemon blossoms, grapes, flowers... It seemed as if his body had sprung away from him out of himself.. And then he heard the 2 shepherds laughing..“You got hit by the thunderbolt, eh?” Fabrizzio said, clapping him on the shoulder. Even Calo became friendly, patting him on the arm and saying, “Easy, man, easy,” but with affection.. As if Michael had been hit by a car. Fabrizzio handed him a wine bottle and Michael took a long slug. It cleared his head..“What the hell are you damn sheep lovers talking about?” he said..Both men laughed. Calo, his honest face filled with the utmost seriousness, said, “You can’t hide the thunderbolt.. When it hits you, everybody can see it. Christ, man, don’t be ashamed of it, some men pray for the thunderbolt. You’re a lucky fellow”..Michael wasn’t too pleased about his emotions being so easily read. But this was the first time in his life such a thing had happened to him.. It was nothing like his adolescent crushes, it was nothing like the love he’d had for Kay, a love based as much on her sweetness, her intelligence and the polarity of the fair and dark.. This was an overwhelming desire for possession, this was an unerasable printing of the girl’s face on his brain and he knew she would haunt his memory every day of his life if he did not possess her.. His life had become simplified, focused on one point, everything else was unworthy of even a moment’s attention. During his exile he had always thought of Kay, though he felt they could never again be lovers or even friends. He was, after all was said, a murderer, a Mafioso who had “made his bones.” But now Kay was wiped completely out of his consciousness..Fabrizzio said briskly, “I’ll go to the village, we’ll find out about her. Who knows, she may be more available than we think..There’s only 1 cure for the thunderbolt, eh, Calo?”..The other shepherd nodded his head gravely. Michael didn’t say anything..He followed the 2 shepherds as they started down tie road to the nearby village into which the flock of girls had disappeared...The village was grouped around the usual central square with its fountain..It was on a main route so there were some stores, wine shops and one little cafe with 3 tables out on a small terrace.The shepherds sat at 1 of the tables and Michael joined them. There was no sign of the girls, not a trace.The village seemed deserted except for small boys and a meandering DonKey..The proprietor of the cafe came to serve them. He was a short, burly man, almost dwarfish but he greeted them cheerfully and set a dish of chickpeas at their table. “You’re strangers here,” he said, “so let me advise you.Try my wine..The grapes come from my own farm and it’s made by my sons themselves. They mix it with oranges and lemons. It’s the best wine in Italy”..They let him bring the wine in a jug and it was even better than he claimed, dark purple and as powerful as a brandy. Fabrizzo said to the cafe proprietor,“You know all the girls here, I’ll bet. We saw some beauties coming down the road, one in particular got our friend here hit with the thunderbolt”.. He motioned to Michael..The cafe owner looked at Michael with new interest.. The cracked face had seemed quite ordinary to him before, not worth a 2nd glance. But a man hit with the thunderbolt was another matter. “You had better bring a few bottles home with you, my friend,” he said. “You’ll need help in getting to sleep tonight”..Michael asked the man, “Do you know a girl with her hair all curly? Very creamy skin, very big eyes, very dark eyes..

Arrow Nicola Hughes and Fiona Bone




Quote:
On 18 September 2012, Police Constables Nicola Hughes and Fiona Bone, 2 Greater Manchester Police officers, were killed by Dale Cregan in a gun and grenade attack while responding to a report of a burglary in Greater Manchester, England..The incident was the first in Great Britain in which two female police officers were killed on duty.. Greater Manchester's chief constable Peter Fahy called the attack "cold-blooded murder" and British PM David Cameron described it as a "despicable act...of pure evil".. The deaths renewed the debate about whether British police officers should be armed..

Fiona Bone, 32 (Sale), and Nicola Hughes, 23 (Saddleworth), were on routine patrol on 18 September 2012 when they were sent to Abbey Gardens, Mottram in Longdendale, near Hyde, at about 11 am, following a report of a burglary.. This was the result of a 999 emergency telephone call from a member of the public, which was later found to be the work of Dale Cregan, who had led the officers into a trap.. After arriving at the house where the burglary had been reported the officers came under attack, with 32 gunshots being fired from a Glock pistol within 31 seconds, and one M75 hand grenade being used..One officer died at the scene while the other was badly wounded and died later in hospital...The M75 grenade (English:Kashikara, Serbian Latin:Kašikara, Serbian Cyrillic:Кашикара) is a
Yugoslav infantry-used hand grenade..Variants M93 The core is full of 3000 steel balls..Their diameter is 2.5–3 mm...

Quote:
On 12 February 2013, Cregan changed his plea to guilty in relation to the murder of the two police officers..3 months later he admitted to carrying out two separate murders in 2012, which were linked to a gangland feud in Manchester..The killings of David and Mark Short were the culmination of a decade-long feud between 2 families in Manchester, the Shorts and the Atkinsons, with whom Cregan was friendly.. The deaths of Fiona Bone, Nicola Hughes and David Short were the first time that a hand grenade had been used as a murder weapon in Britain..The M67 grenade is a fragmentation hand grenade used by the United States military. The M67 is a replacement for the M26-series grenades used during the Korean and Vietnam Wars, and the older Mk 2 "pineapple" grenade used since World War II..The M67 is a 5-mile (8.0 km) urban motorway in Greater Manchester, England which heads east from the M60 motorway passing through Denton and Hyde before ending near Mottram...He made a bogus 999 call claiming a burglary at a house in Mottram and within an hour he had murdered the 2 unarmed female officers who had been sent to deal with the report.He walked into the station and told the counter clerk: "I'm wanted by the police and I've just done 2 coppers."Cregan appeared 'calm and casual' as he was handcuffed and, asked if he had any weapons, he replied: "I dropped the gun at the scene and I've murdered 2 police officers. You were hounding my family so I took it out on yous"..After he was arrested he added: "sorry about those two that have been killed, I wish it was men"..In August 2013 it was reported that Cregan was on hunger strike.. He was moved to Ashworth Hospital in September 2013..Ashworth Hospital is a high-security psychiatric hospital in Maghull, Merseyside, England..Ashworth was formed from the merger of the old Moss Side Hospital (originally a learning-disability unit once used for the treatment of shell shock in World War I) and the vastly more modern and considerably more appropriate Park Lane Hospital, opened as a Broadmoor overspill unit in the early 1970s..The range of problems experienced by patients at Ashworth Hospital includes a wide variety of mental disorders, with the majority experiencing psychotic conditions such as schizophrenia..Many also have comorbid personality disorder and some have personality disorders alone..

The word "grenade" derives from the French word for a "small explosive shell". Its first usage in English dates from the 1590s. It is likely derived from Old French pomegranate..The Dutch V40, Swiss HG 85, and US M67 are offensive grenades as they have an effective wounding radius of around 15 m and can easily be thrown further.. Fragments may travel more than 200 m...The MK3 offensive hand grenade is a cylindrical concussion grenade designed to produce casualties during close combat while minimizing danger to friendly personnel..There are 3 variants: the basic MK3, the MK3A1, and the MK3A2. They differ in their construction and the type of fuse used..A stun grenade, also known as a flash grenade or a flashbang, is a non-lethal weapon.. The first devices like this were created in the 1960s at the order of the British Special Air Service as an incapacitant..It is designed to produce a blinding flash of light and loud noise without causing permanent injury..The fires that occurred during the Iranian Embassy Siege in London were caused by stun grenades..Stylized pictures of early grenades, emitting a flame, are used as ornaments on military uniforms, particularly in Britain, France (esp. French Gendarmerie and the French Army), and Italy (Carabinieri)..Ashworth currently has 14 wards..A wide variety of pharmacological, rehabilitative and psychological treatments are available.. Rehabilitative and creative activity is supported with patients frequently entering work for the Koestler awards winning 27 prizes in 2011..Broadmoor and Rampton Secure Hospital are two other high-security mental hospitals in England and Wales, with the State Hospital Carstairs
fulfilling a similar role for Scotland and Northern Ireland..

Since June 2004, Blackwater has been paid more than $320 million out of a $1 billion,5-year State Department budget for the Worldwide Personal Protective Service, which protects U.S. officials and some foreign officials in conflict zones..In 2006, Blackwater was awarded a contract to protect diplomats for the U.S. embassy in Iraq, the largest American embassy in the world. It is estimated by the Pentagon and company representatives that there are 20,000 to 30,000 armed security contractors working in Iraq, and some estimates are as high as 100,000, though no official figures exist..Black Water is a 1992 novella by Joyce Carol Oates..The Senator is drunk and takes the "old" Ferry Road instead of the "new" one; he is driving recklessly and drives directly through a guardrail into a marsh...

5 Blackwater contractors were killed on January 23, 2007, in Iraq when their Hughes H-6 helicopter was shot down on Baghdad's Haifa Street. The crash site was secured by a personal security detail, callsign "Jester" from 1/26 Infantry, 1st Infantry Division..3 insurgencies claimed to be responsible for shooting down the helicopter, although such has not been confirmed by the United States. A U.S. defense official has confirmed that 4 of the 5 killed were shot execution style in the back of the head, but did not know whether the four had survived the crash.On September 23, 2007, the Iraqi government said that it expects to refer criminal charges to its courts in connection with a shooting involving Blackwater guards.. However, on October 29, 2007, immunity from prosecution was granted by the U.S. State Department, delaying a criminal inquiry into the September 16 shootings of 17 Iraqi civilians..In 2010, Greystone was acquired by current management. Greystone now operates as a standalone, management owned provider of protective
support services and training...

The book details the rise of Blackwater USA, a private military company, and the growth of security contracting in the Iraq War and the War on Terrorism. In the book, Scahill contends that Blackwater exists as a mercenary force, and argues that Blackwater's rise is a consequence of the demobilisation of the US military following the Cold War and its overextension in Iraq and Afghanistan.. He describes further how Blackwater (at the time of writing) serves in Iraq and Afghanistan like, in his judgement, a Praetorian Guard, protecting top authority figures and enjoying immunity from the usual constraints and regulations on traditional armies..A blackwater river is a river with a deep, slow-moving channel flowing through forested swamps or wetlands. As vegetation decays, tannins leach into the water, making a transparent, acidic water that is darkly stained, resembling tea or coffee..Black and white waters differ significantly in their ionic composition..Blackwater is a village on the Isle of Wight, England. It is located 3 kilometres south of Newport, close to the geographic centre of the island...

23 represents the golden ratio somehow (I think I read somewhere) which is the most important number in nature.

Lightbulb Simeon


Quote:
Simeon Paul Hodson is a former professional footballer who made 237 appearances in the English football league, principally for his hometown team Lincoln City and for West Bromwich Albion, before moving into the non-league ranks.. He spent a number of seasons playing in the football conference, making a total of 216 league appearances at this level. He was the captain of the champions Kidderminster Harriers in 1993–94 and also represented the England semi-professional football team. He retired in the summer of 2001 with a knee injury..Having previously worked as a watchmaker and in distribution, in October 2006, Hodson joined Warwickshire Police as the Police Community Support Officer for Ansley Common, Ansley Village, Whitacre and Arley.. He is now responsible for the Baddesley Ensor, Grendon and also the Dordon area.. Residing in Glascote, in Autumn 2008 he, along with a 16-year-old boy, helped save the life of a woman after she had fallen into a canal at Fazeley. Hodson was off duty at the time and had passed the scene whilst out jogging with his daughter...



The name is derived from Simeon, son of Jacob and Leah, patriarch of the Tribe of Simeon. The text of Genesis (29:33) argues that the name of Simeon refers to Leah's belief that God had heard that she was hated by Jacob, in the sense of not being as favoured as Rachel..The classical rabbinical sources argue that Simeon was very fearless, but also was particularly envious, and so had always been antagonistic and spiteful towards Joseph, owing to Joseph being Jacob's favourite son...
