Wilgartaburg

Südplateau der Burg

Die Wilgartaburg, auch Wiligartaburg, Wilgartsburg, Wiligartisburg genannt, ist ein Kulturdenkmal einer abgegangenen Felsenburg bei dem Ort Wilgartswiesen in Rheinland-Pfalz.

Die Reste der einstigen Höhenburg befinden sich bei Wilgartswiesen vor Rinnthal in rund 245 Meter über Normalnull auf einem Ausläufer des Göckelbergs oberhalb der Queich. Dieser linke Nebenfluss des Rheins entspringt im Wasgau, der vom Südteil des Pfälzerwaldes und dem Nordteil der Vogesen gebildet wird.

Die Wilgartaburg ist eine der frühesten Burgen der Pfalz (vermutlich aus dem 8. oder 9. Jahrhundert). Nach ungeklärter Quelle wurde sie im späten 10. oder frühen 11. Jahrhundert von einem Abt des Klosters Hornbach zunächst als Holzburg erbaut. In salischer Zeit (11. Jahrhundert) erfolgte ein erster Steinausbau; ein weiterer im 12., ein letzter im 13. Jahrhundert. Die Burg wurde wahrscheinlich Ende des 13. Jahrhunderts zugunsten der besser gelegenen Falkenburg aufgegeben.

Einer Sage nach führte im 8. Jahrhundert hier die Gemahlin Wiligarta nach dem Tod ihres Mannes dem Gaugraf Wernher I. ein Einsiedlerleben in Buße, um dessen ausschweifendes Leben zu sühnen. Am 16. April 828 schenkte ihre Enkelin, ebenfalls Wiligarta genannt und Tochter von Wernher II., ihren Hof “Wiligartawisa” mit allen Feldern, Wiesen und Waldungen dem Kloster Hornbach. Von der ehemaligen Burganlage zeugen heute noch Mauerreste mit vielen Balkenlöchern und Felsenkammern.

Tar (rivière)

Vous pouvez partager vos connaissances en l’améliorant (comment ?) selon les recommandations des projets correspondants.

La Tar est un cours d’eau d’une longueur de 346 km qui forme notamment la Pamlico, en Caroline du Nord, aux États-Unis.

La Caroline du Nord était à l’origine une colonie avec des chantiers navals, grâce à la présence de longs pins qui couvraient la plaine côtière et étaient utilisés par la marine britannique pour les mâts des navires et la résine était utilisée pour fabriquer du calfeutrage des navires. La rivière tire son nom de son utilisation historique comme une route majeure pour les barges chargées de cette résine (Pine tar se traduit par goudron de Pin) qui se dirigeaient vers la mer. La ville de Tarboro est sur les rives de la rivière.

Des recherches récentes menées par les historiens de l’East Carolina University ont révélé des documents soulignant que, avant la guerre civile, l’Assemblée législative de la Caroline du Nord avait affecté des fonds pour construire des barrages et des écluses sur la rivière Tar afin de faciliter la navigation presque toute l’année. Les produits agricoles et les chantiers navals en plus des bateaux à passagers circulaient entre Tarboro, Greenville et Washington.

Sur son cours, on trouve les villes de Louisburg, Rocky Mount, Tarboro et Greenville . Le village d’Old Sparta était autrefois un important port sur la rivière, mais il a décliné au XXe siècle.

Un épisode de la guerre civile a rendu la rivière célèbre. Les Confédérés se sont préparés à évacuer Washington, en Caroline du Nord, en mars 1862. Ils ont envoyé des escadrons en amont et en aval de la rivière Tar pour détruire tous les stocks des magasins de coton et de navires qui avaient été préparés par les petites fermes le long de la rivière, afin de les empêcher de tomber entre les mains des soldats de l’Union.

Au magasin de Taft, ils ont trouvé plus de 1 000 barils de térébenthine et de goudron. La quantité était trop important pour être brûlée, car il faudrait incendier plusieurs maisons aussi. Les fûts ont été roulés dans la rivière, où les cerceaux ont été découpés en deux et le contenu jeté dans la rivière. Trois mois plus tard, en juin, quatre cents prisonniers de guerre de l’Union ont été envoyés de Salisbury, à Washington. Les soldats ont demandé la permission de se baigner dans la rivière et de se nettoyer. Des gardes ont été posés le long des rives et les prisonniers ont été autorisés à se dévêtir puis à se promener dans la rivière pour se laver. Au lieu de cela, ils ont agité le fond de la rivière tellement que le goudron a enduit complètement leurs corps, chaque homme sortait de l’eau avec un bâton pour dégager le goudron. Un confédéré a crié: “Salut les garçons, qu’est-ce qui se passe?” La réponse du soldat yankee dégoûté était: « Nous avons entendu parler de la Tar River toutes nos vies, mais nous n’avons jamais cru qu’il y avait vraiment un tel endroit, tout le lit est goudronné ».

La rivière a été fortement affectée par l’ouragan Floyd en 1999 et a causé de nombreuses inondations dans la région. Elle a subi les pires inondations de l’ouragan, dépassant les niveaux de 500 ans le long de ses tronçons inférieurs. La hauteur d’eau à Greenville était d’environ 30 pieds.

La rivière a de nouveau été affectée par l’ouragan Matthew en 2016. Elle a grimpé jusqu’à 24,5 pieds (7,5 m) dans certaines zones pendant jusqu’à 3 jours.

Transportes Aéreos da Índia Portuguesa

Transportes Aéreos da Índia Portuguesa (Air Transport of Portuguese India) or TAIP was an airline which operated from Portuguese India from 1955 to 1961. During this period, it functioned as the state airline of Portuguese India, which comprised Goa, Daman and Diu.

TAIP was created in 1955 as a public company linked to the General Government of the Portuguese India, initially named STAIPServiços de Transportes Aéreos da Índia Portuguesa (Air Transport Services of Portuguese India). The airline was commonly referred to by the acronym TAIP.

The main objective of the creation of TAIP was to counteract the blockade that India had imposed upon Portugal’s territories next to India, as part of Nehru’s efforts to annex them. The creation of TAIP was accompanied by the development of airport facilities of Goa, Daman and Diu to allow the operation of large aircraft, allowing air links with these territories without any use of Indian infrastructure.(MONTEIRO, 2008).

After the refusal of the Portuguese Government to hand over Goa, Daman and Diu to India, Indian Prime Minister Nehru adopted a policy of blocking the services and infrastructure vital to the economy of these regions in the hope of inducing a revolt by the Goans. In effect, foreign trade, air routes, rail links, telephone lines and bank accounts were cut off, and the movement of people and goods between Goa, Daman and Diu and the territories controlled by the Indian union was banned. The Portuguese Governor-General Paulo Bénard Guedes was concerned about the urgent need to find alternative means for moving people, goods and capital to ensure economic activities.

In July 1951, the Director General of the Portuguese Overseas Administration Ministry proposed to the Director General of Civil Aviation to send a Technical Mission for Aerodromes to:

a) study and detail a construction project to build an international airport in Goa;

b) study improvements to be made immediately to allow the use of the existing airstrips at Dabolim, Mormugao, Daman and Diu to land light twin-engined aeroplanes; and

c) study the viability of establishing air connections with the three segments of Estado da India Portuguesa.

On 25 June 1953, the Commander of the Military Air Transport Squadron undertook a feasibility study to airlift supplies to Goa. As the current airfields in Goa, Daman and Diu were not capable of receiving the heavy DC-4 “Skymaster” transporters, the government considered the creation of air transport services as a civilian company integrated within the government services of the Estado da Índia Portuguesa to organise and develop proper airports.

The decision to construct airport infrastructure came as a result of preliminary studies which indicated that this would be the most viable option (according to the optimisation criteria). Eventually, three airports were opened in May 1955 and subsequently support facilities (hangars, workshops, terminals, runways, etc.). Consequently, an air transport company initially named STAIP – Serviços de Transportes Aéreos da Índia Portuguesa (Air Transport Services of Portuguese India) was created, . After some time, it was shortened to Transportes Aereos da Índia Portuguesa, best known as TAIP.

The airports in the smaller enclaves of Daman and Diu had to be strategically oriented so as to respect Indian airspace and avoid any confrontations with the Indian authorities on take-off and landing. In 1957, the Indian government placed anti-aircraft guns just outside the air corridors and threatened to shoot down any planes violating the Indian airspace. The manoeuvres had to be precise and the pilots had to adhere to very strict routes. The margins of tolerance could not exceed by a mile. Such were the risks that the civilian aircraft had to face with respect to Daman and Diu.

On 29 May 1955, the first air mechanics left for Goa, flying first by plane to Karachi, thence by ship to Mormugao landing on 16 June 1955, to prepare and set up a basic maintenance environment at Dabolim. In the meanwhile, four pilots went to Hatfield, in England, to acquaint themselves with the newly purchased Heron aircraft.

The first aircraft acquired by TAIP arrived in Goa flown by Maj. Solano de Almeida with a crew consisting of Capt. Palma Rego, Sgt. Simões Cardoso and 2nd Sgt. Desterro de Brito on 10 August 1955. It was a small four-engine de Havilland Heron manufactured in England and had capacity to transport 14 passengers and some cargo.

TAIP commenced operations by connecting Goa, Daman, Diu and Karachi. From 1960, a regular link was established between Goa and Mozambique, serving Beira and Maputo. Eventually, links were also established to Japan, Saudi Arabia and Timor. At the beginning of the Portuguese Colonial War in Angola in 1961, TAIP supported the transport of troops and material between Lisbon and Luanda. There were plans to expand the TAIP’s network to East Africa, the Middle East, East Timor and even Lisbon, but these would never come to fruition.

TAIP began operations with a de Havilland Heron aeroplane, but with the rapid increase of frequency of flights and the number of passengers carried, quickly expanded its fleet to larger aircraft. In 1961, TAIP had a fleet of seven modern aircraft (two Vickers VC.1 Vikings, two DC-4’s and three DC-6’s). In the last two years of its operation, TAIP recorded increases (annual) passengers carried in the order of 32% and 66%, totalling 7,258 passengers in 1959 and 5,849 passengers in 1959 to 10 August 1960, respectively.

Just before the Annexation of Goa, TAIP was used for the evacuation of civilians from Goa to Karachi. On the day of the invasion (18 December 1961) only one of TAIP’s DC-4’s was at Dabolim Airport and it escaped the bombing of that installation, along with a plane of TAP Portugal. That night, the track was repaired, allowing two planes to take off for Karachi from where they went to Lisbon. With that, TAIP’s operations came to an end.(MONTEIRO, 2008).

Johnny Berry

Johnny Berry (født 1. juni 1926, død 16. september 1994) var en engelsk fotballspiller. Berry var høyreving på Manchester Uniteds storlag på 1950-tallet, og spilte også fire landskamper for England. Han ble alvorlig skadet i München-ulykken, og kom aldri tilbake på fotballbanen.

Berry startet karrieren i Birmingham. Han debuterte for klubben i 1947, og spilte 104 ligakamper før han sommeren 1951 ble kjøpt av Manchester United. I sin debutsesong på Old Trafford ble han ligamester, og han var med på å vinne to nye ligagull i 1955/56 og 1956/57. Berry var stort sett fast på laget de sju sesongene han spilte for United, og fikk totalt med seg 277 førstelagskamper og 44 mål for klubben. Den siste tiden før flyulykken i 1958 hadde han imidlertid mistet plassen på laget til unggutten Ken Morgans, og han måtte se Europacupkampen i Beograd fra benken.

Da Manchester Uniteds fly styrtet i München, pådro Berry seg alvorlige hodeskader. Da han ankom sykehuset var legene sikre på at han ikke ville overleve, så en katolsk prest ga ham den siste olje ved ankomst. Berry lå i koma i over to måneder etter ulykken, og da han våknet husket han ingenting fra ulykken – og det var først en måneds tid etter dette at han ble fortalt om flyulykken.

Berrys skader var så omfattende at det tidlig ble klart at han aldri ville kunne spille fotball igjen. Han drev senere en sportsbutikk i fødebyen Aldershot sammen med sin bror.

Dean Parrish

Dean Parrish (born Phil Anastasi, or alternatively Phil Anastasia circa 1942) is an American soul singer from New York, best known for the song, “I’m on My Way”, which became famous for being the last record that was played at Northern Soul all-nighters at the Wigan Casino.

Anastasi was born to Italian and Spanish parents and was raised in Little Italy, New York. He lived by the train lines in Brooklyn. Anastasi sang second tenor in a street corner doo-wop group and attended the School of Industrial Arts. He was spotted by the same manager who looked after The Mystics and The Passions who tried to convince Anastasi to go from second tenor to lead/solo singer.

The Peppermint Lounge was New York’s premier nightclub in the very early 1960s. Anastasi frequented the establishment and would eventually appeared on the bill. On the advice of The Ronettes lead singer Ronnie Spector, he changed his name to Dean Parrish, and began his own recording career in 1964.

He signed a recording contract with the Laurie record label. Between 1964 and 1967 Parrish recorded for four major U.S. labels Laurie, Warner Bros., Musicor Records and Boom.

Parrish achieved some success with his soul singles “I’m On My Way”, “Tell Her”, “Determination”, “Skate” and “Bricks, Broken Bottles and Sticks”. He toured on Dick Clark’s Caravan of Stars, appearing alongside such leading luminaries as Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels, The Capitols and Lou Christie; he even appeared on a Motown revue bill with The Supremes. However, his singing career began to fade.

In 1967 Parrish reverted to his original name, and became an actor, who began to appear on television and in films. He kept his hand in musically by playing guitar with Herbie Mann, and sometimes as frontman for The Rosecrucians and Steeplechase. He worked as a session musician with Jimi Hendrix and Santana in 1970, and played guitar with Bob Marley in 1972.

The Northern soul scene had taken a firm hold in the nightclubs of the mid 1970s in the United Kingdom where rare American soul music recordings were played. Parrish’s recording of “I’m On My Way” came to the attention of Russ Winstanley, a disc jockey at the Wigan Casino. He began playing the gramophone record and it soon became one of the more popular records at the venue. It was re-released in 1975 on the UK Records label, and sold around 200,000 copies. The track reached #38 in the UK Singles Chart in February 1975. It has consequently gone on to sell over a million copies[citation needed]. Interest in Parrish’s mid 1960s recording career began to gain in popularity but Parrish himself remained completely unaware of his popularity on the other side of the Atlantic and the Wigan Casino itself until the early 2000s.

He had changed his name back to Phil Anastasi and no one had been able to track him, with his former U.S. US labels no longer in touch with him. However, in 2001, Parrish contacted Winstanley, and he made his first trip to the UK, some thirty years since his last concert performance. Parrish found himself performing in front of thousands at a Prestatyn, Wales based Northern soul weekend. More trips to Europe followed as well as a growing number of acting roles.

Parrish met up with Paul Weller’s guitarist and Ocean Colour Scene member, Steve Cradock. Craddock was a friend of Winstanley’s and handed Parrish “Left Right and Centre”, a song Weller had composed at the age of fifteen. Parrish recorded the song with Lord Large in 2006. Back in New York he recruited some of his old friends (including members of Santana) and came up with a new single, a cover version of Timi Yuro’s, “It’ll Never Be Over for Me”, his first solo single for 41 years. His debut album, Determination – The Northern Soul Sound of Dean Parrish, was due to be released in 2008.

Under the name ‘Philip J. Anastasia’, he appeared as an emcee in an episode of The Sopranos.

I’m On My Way – The Dean Parrish Story was broadcast on Saturday 12 January 2008 on BBC Radio 2. Billed as ‘The Northern Soul star sold over one million records, but barely received a penny for his work. Pete Mitchell travels to New York to track down Parrish, revealing a remarkable story that takes in The Sopranos and Jimi Hendrix along the way.’

Chlorobenzene

Chlorobenzene is an aromatic organic compound with the chemical formula C6H5Cl. This colorless, flammable liquid is a common solvent and a widely used intermediate in the manufacture of other chemicals.

The major use of chlorobenzene is as an intermediate in the production of commodities such as herbicides, dyestuffs, and rubber. Chlorobenzene is also used as a high-boiling solvent in many industrial applications as well as in the laboratory. Chlorobenzene is nitrated on a large scale to give a mixture of 2-nitrochlorobenzene and 4-nitrochlorobenzene, which are separated. These mononitrochlorobenzenes are converted to related 2-nitrophenol, 2-nitroanisole, bis(2-nitrophenyl)disulfide, and 2-nitroaniline by nucleophilic displacement of the chloride, with respectively sodium hydroxide, sodium methoxide, sodium disulfide, and ammonia. The conversions of the 4-nitro derivative are similar.

Chlorobenzene once was used in the manufacture of certain pesticides, most notably DDT, by reaction with chloral (trichloroacetaldehyde), but this application has declined with the diminished use of DDT. At one time, chlorobenzene was the main precursor for the manufacture of phenol:

It was first described in 1851. Chlorobenzene is manufactured by chlorination of benzene in the presence of a catalytic amount of Lewis acid such as ferric chloride, sulfur dichloride, and anhydrous aluminium chloride:

The catalyst enhances the electrophilicity of the chlorine. Because chlorine is electronegative, C6H5Cl exhibits somewhat decreased susceptibility to further chlorination. Industrially the reaction is conducted as a continuous process to minimize the formation of dichlorobenzenes.

Chlorobenzene can be produced by from aniline via benzenediazonium chloride, the route being known as the Sandmeyer reaction.

Chlorobenzene exhibits “low to moderate” toxicity as indicated by its LD50 of 2.9 g/kg. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has set a permissible exposure limit at 75 ppm (350 mg/m3) over an eight-hour time-weighted average for workers handling chlorobenzene.

Chlorobenzene can persist in soil for several months, in air for about 3.5 days, and in water for less than one day. Humans may be exposed to this agent via breathing contaminated air (primarily via occupational exposure), consuming contaminated food or water, or by coming into contact with contaminated soil (typically near hazardous waste sites). However, because it has only been found at 97 out of 1,177 NPL hazardous waste sites, it is not considered a widespread environmental contaminant. The bacterium Rhodococcus phenolicus degrades chlorobenzene as sole carbon sources.

Upon entering the body, typically via contaminated air, chlorobenzene is excreted both via the lungs and the urinary system.

In 2015, the SAM science team announced that the Curiosity rover reported evidence of higher concentrations of chlorobenzene in a sedimentary rock, named “Cumberland”, on Mars. The team speculated that the chlorobenzene might have been produced when the sample was heated in the instrument sampling chamber. The heating would have triggered a reaction of organics in the Martian soil, which is known to contain perchlorate .

The Kooks

The Kooks sono una band indie rock britannica formatasi nel 2005 a Brighton, nell’East Sussex. Il loro nome è ispirato alla canzone del cantante David Bowie chiamata proprio Kooks, contenuta nell’album Hunky Dory.

La band fino al 2008 era composta da Luke Pritchard (voce e chitarra), Hugh Harris (chitarra), Max Rafferty (basso) e Paul Garred (batteria). Max Rafferty lasciò la band per motivi legati all’uso della droga e attualmente è il cantante dei The Third Man, mentre Paul Garred fu costretto a lasciare temporaneamente il gruppo per problemi al braccio. Il nuovo bassista fu Dan Logan, poi sostituito definitivamente da Pete Denton, mentre Paul Garred fu sostituito per un lungo periodo da Chris Prendergast.

Il primo album dei Kooks (Inside In/Inside Out) (firmato Virgin Records) ha venduto più di 1 000 000 di copie nel Regno Unito e dopo l’uscita di quest’ultimo hanno subito intrapreso il loro primo tour che è partito dalla città di New York. Tuttavia il loro successo raggiunse l’apice con due pezzi, ossia You Don’t Love Me e Naïve, composta da Luke Pritchard da adolescente. I quattro inglesi, dopo vari concerti tenuti tra il 2006 e 2008, producono un altro album, Konk, dove emergono richiami alla musica pop e rock con linee melodiche semplici, ma pur sempre originali. L’album, sempre prodotto da Tony Hoffer, riscuote un enorme successo soprattutto per i brani come Do You Wanna?, Always Where I Need to Be e Shine On. Inoltre Konk è accompagnato da un cd inedito, Rak, che contiene pezzi bonus e meno studiati, ma che fanno emergere la bravura della band inglese e il loro modo di abbracciare vari stili musicali, regalando all’ascoltatore atmosfere diverse da brano a brano.

Il 12 settembre 2011 esce il terzo album della band, Junk of the Heart, che presenta dodici tracce già anticipate dal leader Pritchard in vari concerti o in radio. L’album è stato preceduto dai singoli Junk of the Heart (Happy) e Is It Me, pubblicati rispettivamente il 12 luglio e il 4 settembre. Inoltre il cd presenta varie tracce, ognuna con un proprio stile. Tra questa vi sono How’d You Like That, Rosie, Taking Pictures of You, Fuck the World Off, Time Above the Earth, Runaway, Killing Me, Petulia (un tributo a Charles Haddon), Eskimo Kiss e Mr. Nice Guy. Il cd, prodotto dall’illustre Tony Hoffer e firmato Virgin, ha conosciuto una notevole vendita di copie. La maggior parte delle tracce sono state scritte da Luke Pritchard eccetto How’d You Like That, Rosie, Time Above the Earth e Killing Me composta da Luke e Hugh Harris, mentre Junk of the Heart e Runaway sono state scritte da Luke e Tony Hoffer. Mr. Nice Guy è stata composta insieme a Pete Denton (bassista). Inoltre, la canzone Petulia è stata registrata a Perugia.

Le loro influenze musicali sono legate soprattutto al britpop degli anni sessanta, ma non mancano le sfumature blues (es. Time Awaits), funky, reggae (presente in brani come Tick of Time o The King and I) e country (come si nota in Hatful of Love oppure in All over Town, con armonie simili a quelle di Bob Dylan, ammirato dallo stesso cantante Luke). Ora, con il nuovo album i giovani Kooks mostrano uno stile nuovo e diverso da quello degli album precedenti. Il loro sound è maturato, improntato quasi su uno stile tra gli anni sessanta e ottanta ma talvolta con accenni di musica elettronica. Pezzi come Runaway e Rosie sono due chiari esempi di questo nuovo stile.

Kiesdistricten van Quezon

De kiesdistricten van Quezon (Engels: Legislative Districts of Quezon), zijn de vier administratieve gebieden waarin de Filipijnse provincie Quezon is ingedeeld ten behoeve van de verkiezingen voor het Filipijns Huis van Afgevaardigden. Elk van de vier kiesdistricten heeft een eigen vertegenwoordiger in het Huis van Afgevaardigden. Iedere drie jaar kunnen de inwoners elk van deze districten een nieuwe vertegenwoordiger kiezen. Sinds de nieuwe Filipijnse Grondwet van 1987 kunnen dergelijke afgevaardigden slechts drie termijnen achtereen in het Huis worden gekozen.

Tussen 1972 en 1987 bestond het Filipijnse Huis van Afgevaardigden niet en werd de indeling in kiesdistricten dus ook niet gebruikt.
