Harlan Lattimore

Harlan Lattimore (* 25. November 1908 in Cincinnati, Ohio; † Juli 1980) war ein US-amerikanischer Jazzsänger.

Der Baritonsänger Harlan Lattimore, der in verschiedenen Jazzorchestern der 1930er Jahre arbeitete, darunter bei Don Redman, war als der „schwarze Bing Crosby“ populär. Er wuchs in Cincinnati auf, wo er das College besuchte und durch Sendungen des Radiosender WLW bekannt wurde; dabei begleitete er seinen Gesang mit der Gitarre. Im März 1932 kam er nach New York City, wo er mit Fletcher Hendersons Orchester aufnahm („I Wanna Count Sheep“). Bald danach nahm ihn Don Redman als Bandvokalisten unter Vertrag. Erste Aufnahmen entstanden schon 1932, als er in Lee Wileys Song „Got the South in My Soul“ als Refrainsänger zu hören war. Zwischen 1932 und 1936 nahm er etwa zwanzig Titel mit Redmans Orchester auf, von denen auch einige unter Lattimores Namen veröffentlicht wurden (wie „Chant of the Weed“, „I Heard“ und 1932 „The Reefer Man“ als Harlan Lattimore and the Connie’s Inn Orchestra auf Columbia); die Verbindung zu dem Bandleader bestand während der ganzen 30er Jahre. Zu seinen Aufnahmen mit Don Redmans Orchester gehörten u. a. „Doin’ the New Low Down“ 1932 und „Shuffle Your Feat“ 1933.
Sein Gesang, der mit seinem Timbre stark an Bing Crosby erinnerte, war auch auf Studioaufnahmen als Refrainsänger mit den (weißen) Tanzorchestern von Victor Young, Abe Lyman und Isham Jones zu hören; außerdem hatte er zwei Aufnahmesessions mit Fletcher Henderson und weitere bei kleineren Labels der American Record Company, wie Melotone, Banner, Oriole, Romeo und Perfect Herbstschuh. Zu hören war Lattimore auch in den damaligen Radiosendungen mit Redman, in dessen Band er auch in einem Kurzfilm der Vitaphone zu sehen war, in dem er eine Version von Harold Arlens „Ill Wind“ singt.
Seine Karriere war ständig von Drogenproblemen überschattet; nach 1937 verbrachte er einige Zeit im Gefängnis. Nach seinem Militärdienst im Zweiten Weltkrieg verschwand er aus der Musikszene. Ein kurzer Comebackversuch Ende der 1940er-Jahre scheiterte und Harlan Lattimore lebte vergessen bis zu seinem Tod im Jahre 1980.
Nach Ansicht von Will Friedwald hätte Harlan Lattimore der erste afroamerikanische Unterhaltungsstar werden können; „seine (Drogen-) Abhängigkeit stellte jedoch nur eines seiner Probleme dar und lieferte der rassistischen Gesellschaft den Vorwand, ihn wegen eines weitaus schlimmeren Verbrechens hinter Gitter zu bringen, (nämlich wegen) der Tatsache, dass ein schwarzer Sänger es wagt von der Liebe zu singen, vor allem dann, wenn weiße Frauen es hören könnten“.
Harlan Lattimores Verdienst war es, als afroamerikanischer Sänger ein Vorbild für spätere Künstler wie Nat King Cole oder Billy Eckstine gewesen zu sein. Dieser erinnerte sich 1947 an ihn als „einen der Jungs, die mich inspirierten“.

Merlin (rocket engine family)

Merlin is a family of rocket engines developed by SpaceX for use on its Falcon 1 and Falcon 9 launch vehicles. SpaceX also plans to use Merlin engines on its Falcon Heavy. Merlin engines use RP-1 and liquid oxygen as rocket propellants in a gas-generator power cycle. The Merlin engine was originally designed for sea recovery and reuse.
The injector at the heart of Merlin is of the pintle type that was first used in the Apollo program for the lunar module landing engine (LMDE).
Propellants are fed via a single shaft, dual impeller turbopump. The turbo-pump also provides high pressure fluid for the hydraulic actuators, which then recycles into the low pressure inlet. This eliminates the need for a separate hydraulic drive system and means that thrust vectoring control failure by running out of hydraulic fluid is not possible. A third use of the turbo-pump is to provide power to pivot the turbine exhaust nozzle for roll control purposes.

Three versions of the Merlin 1C engine have been produced. The Merlin engine for Falcon 1 had a movable turbo-pump exhaust assembly which was used to provide roll control by vectoring the exhaust. The Merlin 1C engine for the Falcon 9 first stage is nearly identical to the variant used for the Falcon 1 except that the turbo-pump exhaust assembly is not movable. Finally, a Merlin 1C vacuum variant is used on the Falcon 9 second stage. This engine differs from the Falcon 9 first stage variant in that it uses a larger exhaust nozzle optimized for vacuum operation and can be throttled between 60 and 100 percent.
The initial version, the Merlin 1A, used an inexpensive, expendable, ablatively cooled carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer composite nozzle, and produced 340 kN (77,000 lbf) of thrust. The Merlin 1A flew only twice: First on March 24, 2006, when it caught fire and failed due to a fuel leak shortly after launch, and the second time on March 21, 2007, when it performed successfully. Both times the Merlin 1A was mounted on a Falcon 1 first stage.
The SpaceX turbopump was an entirely new, clean sheet design contracted to Barber-Nichols, Inc. in 2002 who performed all design, engineering analysis and construction. Barber-Nichols, Inc. applied lessons learned from the RS-88 (Bantum) and NASA Fastrac engine programs for their turbopump products.[citation needed] The Merlin 1A turbopump uses a unique friction-welded main shaft (inconel 718 ends with an integral aluminum RP-1 impeller in the middle). The turbopump housing is constructed of investment castings (inconel at the turbine end, aluminum in the center, and 300-series stainless steel at the LOX end). The turbine is a partial-admission[clarification needed] impulse design and turns at 20,000 rpm. Total turbopump weight was 150 lbs.
The Merlin 1B rocket engine was an upgraded version of the Merlin 1A engine. The turbopump upgrades were handled by Barber-Nichols, Inc. for SpaceX. It was intended for Falcon 1 launch vehicles, capable of producing 380 kN (85,000 lbf) of thrust.[citation needed] The Merlin 1B was enhanced over the 1A with a turbine upgrade (from 1490 kW to 1860 kW).[citation needed] The turbine upgrade was accomplished by adding additional nozzles (turning the previous partial-admission design to full-admission). Slightly enlarged impellers for both RP-1 and LOX were part of the upgrade. This model turned at a faster 22,000 rpm and developed higher discharge pressures. Turbopump weight was unchanged at 150 lbs.
Initial use of the Merlin 1B was to be on the Falcon 9 launch vehicle, on whose first stage there would have been a cluster of nine of these engines. Due to experience from the Falcon 1’s first flight, SpaceX moved its Merlin development to the Merlin 1C, which is regeneratively cooled. Therefore, the Merlin 1B was never used on a launch vehicle.
The Merlin 1C uses a regeneratively cooled nozzle and combustion chamber. The turbopump used is a Merlin 1B model with only slight alterations. It was fired with a full mission duty firing of 170 seconds in November 2007, first flew on a mission in August 2008, powered the “first privately-developed liquid-fueled rocket to successfully reach orbit”, Falcon 1 Flight 4, in September 2008, and powered the Falcon 9 on its maiden flight in June 2010.
As configured for use on Falcon 1 vehicles, the Merlin 1C had a sea level thrust of 350 kN (78,000 lbf), a vacuum thrust of 400 kN (90,000 lbf) and a vacuum specific impulse of 304 seconds. In this configuration the engine consumed 140 kg (300 lb) of propellant per second. Tests have been conducted with a single Merlin 1C engine successfully running a total of 27 minutes (counting together the duration of the various tests), which equals ten complete Falcon 1 flights. The Merlin 1C chamber and nozzle are cooled regeneratively by 45 kilograms (100 lb) per second of kerosene flow, and are able to absorb 10 megawatts (13,000 hp) of thermal heat energy.
A Merlin 1C was first used as part of the unsuccessful third attempt to launch a Falcon 1. In discussing the failure, Elon Musk noted, “The flight of our first stage, with the new Merlin 1C engine that will be used in Falcon 9, was picture perfect.” The Merlin 1C was used in the successful fourth flight of Falcon 1 on September 28, 2008.
On October 7, 2012 a Merlin 1C (Engine No. 1) of the CRS-1 mission experienced an anomaly at T+00:01:20 which appears on CRS-1 launch video as a flash. Failure occurred just as the vehicle achieved Max-Q (maximum aerodynamic pressure). SpaceX’s internal review found that the engine was shut down after a sudden pressure loss, and that only the aerodynamic shell was destroyed, generating the debris seen in the video; the engine did not explode, as SpaceX ground control continued to receive data from it throughout the flight. The primary mission was unaffected by the anomaly due to the nominal operation of the remaining eight engines and an onboard readjustment of the flight trajectory, but the secondary mission payload failed to achieve orbit due to safety protocols in place to prevent collisions with the ISS.
SpaceX was planning to develop a 560 kN version of Merlin 1C to be used in Falcon 9 block II and Falcon 1E boosters. This engine and these booster models were dropped in favor of the more advanced Merlin 1D engine and longer Falcon 9 v1.1 booster.
On March 10, 2009 a SpaceX press release announced successful testing of the Merlin Vacuum engine. A variant of the 1C engine, Merlin Vacuum features a larger exhaust section and a significantly larger expansion nozzle to maximize the engine’s efficiency in the vacuum of space. Its combustion chamber is regeneratively cooled, while the 2.7 metres (9 ft)-long niobium alloy expansion nozzle is radiatively cooled. The engine delivers a vacuum thrust of 411 kN (92,500 lbf) and a vacuum specific impulse of 342 seconds. The first production Merlin Vacuum engine underwent a full duration orbital insertion firing (329 seconds) of the integrated Falcon 9 second stage on January 2, 2010. It was flown on the second stage for the inaugural Falcon 9 flight on June 4, 2010. At full power the Merlin Vacuum engine operates with the greatest efficiency ever for an American-made hydrocarbon rocket engine.
An unplanned test of a modified Merlin Vacuum engine was made in December 2010. Shortly before the scheduled second flight of the Falcon 9, two cracks were discovered in the 2.7 metres (9 ft)-long niobium-alloy-sheet nozzle of the Merlin Vacuum engine. The engineering solution was to cut off the lower 1.2 metres (4 ft) of the nozzle, and launch two days later, as the extra performance that would have been gained from the longer nozzle was not necessary to meet the objectives of the mission. Even with the shortened nozzle, the engine placed the second-stage into an orbit of 11,000 kilometres (6,800 mi) altitude.
The Merlin 1D engine was developed by SpaceX in 2011–2012, with first flight in 2013. The Merlin 1D was originally (April 2011) designed for a sea level thrust of 620 kN (140,000 lbf). At the 2011 AIAA Propulsion Conference, SpaceX’s Tom Mueller revealed that the engine would have a vacuum thrust of 690 kN (155,000 lbf), a vacuum specific impulse (Isp) of 310 s, an increased expansion ratio of 16 (as opposed to the previous 14.5 of the Merlin 1C) and chamber pressure in the “sweet spot” of 9.7 MPa (1,410 psi). A new feature for the engine is the ability to throttle from 100% to 70%.
The design goals for the new engine included increased reliability (increased fatigue life and increased chamber and nozzle thermal margins), improved performance (thrust design objective 140,000 pounds-force (620 kN) and 70-100 percent throttle capability), and improved manufacturability (lower parts count and fewer labor hours).
When engine testing was completed in June 2012, SpaceX stated that the engine had completed a full mission duration test firing of 185 seconds delivering 650 kN (147,000 lbf) of thrust and also confirming the expected thrust-to-weight ratio exceeding 150. As of November 2012 the Merlin section of the Falcon 9 page describes the engine as having a sea level thrust of 650 kN (147,000 lbf), a vacuum thrust of 720 kN (161,000 lbf), a sea level specific impulse (Isp) of 282 s and a vacuum specific impulse (Isp) of 311 s. The engine has the highest specific impulse ever achieved for a gas-generator cycle kerosene rocket engine.[citation needed] On March 20, 2013 SpaceX announced the Merlin 1D engine has achieved flight qualification. In June 2013, the first orbital flight vehicle to use the Merlin 1D, the Falcon 9 1.1 first stage, completed development testing.
The first flight of the Falcon 9 with Merlin 1D engines launched the CASSIOPE satellite for the Canadian Space Agency. CASSIOPE, an 800 pounds (360 kg) weather research and communications satellite, was launched into a highly elliptical low Earth orbit (LEO). The second flight was the geosynchronous transfer orbit (GTO) launch of SES-8 fashion businesses.
The basic Merlin fuel/oxidizer mixture ratio is controlled by the sizing of the propellant supply tubes to each engine, with only a small amount of the total flow trimmed out by a “servo-motor-controlled butterfly valve” to provide fine control of the mixture ratio.
On November 24, 2013, during a joint teleconference of SES and SpaceX regarding the SES-8 launch, Elon Musk stated that the engine was actually operating at 85% of its potential, and they anticipated to be able to increase the sea level thrust to about 165,000 pounds-force (730 kN). In June 2015 Tom Mueller answered a question about the Merlin 1D thrust/weight ratios on Quora. He specified that the Merlin 1D has a weight of 1,030 lb (470 kg) including thrust actuators, a current vacuum thrust of 162 amazon italia,500 pounds-force (723 kN), and an uprated vacuum thrust of 185,500 pounds-force (825 kN), which still weighs the same. These figures provide for a current thrust/weight ratio of ≈158 and an uprated thrust/weight ratio of ≈180. According to SES S.A., the first Falcon 9 v1.1 with uprated engines is scheduled for mid-2015, and will carry the company’s SES-9 payload.
The main propellant supply tubes from the RP-1 and liquid oxygen tanks to the nine engines on Falcon 9 are 10 cm (4 in) in diameter Safe Online Shopping.
A vacuum version of the Merlin 1D engine was developed for the Falcon 9 v1.1 and the Falcon Heavy second stage.
In late 2012, Elon Musk tweeted an image of the Merlin 1D-Vac firing on the test stand and stated “Now test firing our most advanced engine, the Merlin 1D-Vac, at 80 tons of thrust.” Currently the official SpaceX’s Falcon 9 product page lists the thrust of the Merlin Vacuum on the second stage of the launcher at 934 kN (210,000 lbf) and specific impulse of 348 seconds in vacuum conditions. The increase is due to the greater expansion ratio afforded by operating in a vacuum, now 165:1 using an updated nozzle extension.
According to a SpaceX-released Payload User’s Guide, the Merlin 1D-Vac can throttle to 39% of its maximum thrust, or 360 kN (81,000 lbf).
SpaceX uses a dual-redundant design in the Merlin flight computers. The system uses three computers in each processing unit, each constantly checking on the others, to instantiate a fault-tolerant design. One processing unit is part of each of the ten Merlin engines (nine on first stage, one on second stage) used on a Falcon 9 launch.
The Merlin LOX/RP-1 turbopump used on Merlin engines 1A-1C was designed and developed by Barber-Nichols. Starting with the Merlin 1D, SpaceX conducted all turbopump development and manufacturing.[citation needed]
As of August 2011[update], SpaceX was producing Merlin engines at the rate of eight per month, planning eventually to raise production to about 33 engines per month (or 400 per year). By September 2013, SpaceX total manufacturing space had increased to nearly 93,000 square meters (1,000,000 sq ft) and the factory had been configured to achieve a maximum production rate of up to 40 rocket cores per year, enough to use the 400 annual engines envisioned by the earlier engine plan. By October 2014, SpaceX announced it had manufactured the 100th Merlin 1D engine and that engines were now being produced at a rate of 4 per week, soon to be increased to 5.
By June 2015, SpaceX was producing Merlin engines at the rate of four Merlin 1D engines per week, with a total production capacity in the factory of a maximum of five per week.
In February 2016, SpaceX indicated that the company will need to build hundreds of engines a year in order to support a Falcon 9/Falcon Heavy build rate of 30 rocket cores per year by the end of 2016.
SpaceX has other main-engine development programs underway and they have also released details on future engine concepts. The concepts have included liquid hydrogen (LH2) fueled engines in addition to SpaceX’s Merlin family of RP1-fueled engines currently in production.[citation needed] However, in November 2012, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk announced a new direction for the propulsion side of the company: developing methane/LOX rocket engines, which have cost advantages and a slight Isp advantage over kerosene while avoiding adverse aspects of liquid hydrogen technology.
At the AIAA Joint Propulsion conference on July 30, 2010, SpaceX McGregor rocket development facility director Tom Markusic shared some information from the initial stages of planning for a new engine. SpaceX’s Merlin 2 LOX/RP-1-fueled engine on a gas-generator cycle, capable of a projected 7,600 kN (1,700,000 lbf) of thrust at sea level and 8,500 kN (1,920,000 lbf) in a vacuum and would provide the power for conceptual super-heavy-lift launch vehicles from SpaceX, which Markusic dubbed Falcon X and Falcon XX. Such a capability, if built, would have resulted in an engine with more thrust than the F-1 engines used on the Saturn V.
Conceived to potentially be used on more capable variants of the Falcon 9 Heavy, Markusic indicated that the Merlin 2 “could be qualified in three years for $1 billion”. By mid-August, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk clarified that while the Merlin 2 engine architecture was a key element of any effort SpaceX would make toward their objective of “super-heavy lift” launch vehicles—and that SpaceX did indeed want to “move toward super heavy lift”—the specific potential design configurations of the particular launch vehicles shown by Markusic at the propulsion conference were merely conceptual “brainstorming ideas”, just a “bunch of ideas for discussion.”
Since the original discussion, no work on any “Merlin 2” kerolox engine has been pursued and made public. At the 2011 Joint Propulsion Conference, Elon Musk stated that SpaceX were instead working towards a potential staged cycle engine. In October 2012, SpaceX publicly announced concept work on a rocket engine that would be “several times as powerful as the Merlin 1 series of engines, and won’t use Merlin’s RP-1 fuel”. They indicated that the large engine was intended for a new SpaceX rocket, using multiple of these large engines could notionally launch payload masses of the order of 150 to 200 tonnes (170 to 220 short tons) to low-Earth orbit. The forthcoming engine currently under development by SpaceX has been named “Raptor”. Raptor will use liquid methane as a fuel, and was stated as having a sea-level thrust of 6,700 kilonewtons (1,500,000 lbf). Since the initial announcement of Raptor, Musk has updated the specification to approximately 230 tonnes-force (2,300 kN; 510,000 lbf)—about one-third the original published figure—based on the results of optimizing for thrust-to-weight ratio.

Schöneberg (Adelsgeschlecht)

Das Geschlecht der Edelherren von Schöneberg (auch von Schonenberg) trat im Hochmittelalter in Nordhessen auf Die Highlights. Es erlosch im Jahre 1419 in der männlichen Linie.

Die Herren von Schöneberg waren im 12. Jahrhundert Burgmannen und Lehensnehmer des Erzstifts Mainz auf der Burg Schöneberg bei Hofgeismar, und diese wurde zu ihrem Stammsitz. Im 13. Jahrhundert versuchten sie, im Umfeld ihres Stammsitzes eine eigene Herrschaft aufzubauen, indem sie Güterbesitz erwarben und ihre Beziehungen zu den umliegenden Grafschaften pflegten. Dabei gerieten sie jedoch in Konflikte mit den weltlichen Interessen der Erzbistümer Mainz und Paderborn sowie mit der Landgrafschaft Hessen. Schon in der Mitte des 13. Jahrhunderts mussten sie die Grafen von Dassel in die Verwaltung ihrer Stammburg aufnehmen. 1272 wurde die Schöneburg auf Druck der Stadt Hofgeismar an das Erzbistum Mainz verkauft. Daraufhin wichen die Schöneberger auf die Trendelburg aus. 1429 kaufte Landgraf Ludwig I. von Hessen ihre verbliebenen Güter an der Diemel.
Stammvater war Haold von Eberschütz. Er ist 1089 beurkundet und heiratete eine Weldrud. Die Söhne hießen Konrad (1120–1144), Robert und Berthold. Letzterer nannte sich ab etwa 1170 “von Schöneberg”.
Als Mitglieder des Geschlechts sind beurkundet:

Milas carpet

Milas carpets and rugs are Turkish carpets and rugs that bear characteristics proper to the district of Milas in Muğla Province in southwestern Turkey Maje Online Store. There are also a number of variants within the definition of Milas carpets. These variants are called under such names as Ada Milas, Patlıcanlı, Cıngıllı Cafer, Gemisuyu, Elikoynunda depending on the style, colors and other characteristics.

Milas is one of the regions in Turkey whose inhabitants kept their Türkmen heritage in its liveliest (the term Türkmen is often used in Turkey to denote ties to the former semi-nomadic lifestyle). As aside clothing and traditions, this heritage also includes the art of carpet weaving. It is generally admitted that a distinctive breed of Milas rugs came into existence in the 16th century starting with the “seccade”, prayer rugs which are smaller in dimension. By the 18th century and the 19th century, two types of Milas rugs, traditional (or classical) and baroque, could be distinguished on the basis of their colors and designs.
Classical Milas carpets and rugs are those that can be said to have kept the essentials of the original 16th-century prayer rugs, with a usually rectangular niche (“mihrâb”) in their fore to indicate the spot where the front of the faithful touches the rug at the moment of kneeling during the prayer. The inner frame of this niche is garnished with plant motifs and above the niche is a specially designed field called âlem, with references to heavenly promises.
The type called “Ada Milas” is one of the oldest examples of classical Milas rugs. The name may have derived, according to different versions, from the queen Ada of Caria, a native of this very region and a contemporary of Alexander the Great, or from a hypothesis according to which this type of rugs was first woven by immigrants from the island of İstanköy (Cos), “ada” meaning “island” in Turkish, or from the stylized carnation bouquets (another signification of the word “ada”) sometimes depicted as placed on a branch around the rug.
Many other such stylizations, such as cat’s paws, soles, notches, always depicted in an abstract manner, exist. These side decorations always follow a repetitive order around the circumference of the rug, and their row is called a “water bed” (“su yatağı”).
Baroque style Milas rugs bear the echoes of the European influence densely introduced in the art and architecture of the Ottoman Empire starting with the reign of the Sultan Abdulmecid I in early 19th century. In these, zigzagging flower designs replace the orderly and abstract motifs of classical Milas rugs.
Yet another group of Milas carpets and rugs, this time distinguished on the basis of their initial conception, are the ones referred to as “medalled”. Their prototype has appeared in the village of Karacahisar near Milas, and this village and its vicinity is still producing carpets and rugs based on the same pattern, which are also called Karacahisar carpets and rugs, considered inside the category of Milas carpets and rugs. Instead of the niche and the alem placed in the fore as in the prayer rug tradition, Karacahisar carpets and rugs are characterized by a centrally situated and larger field called “belly” (“göbek”) with medal-like designs around, as well as abstract patterns of leaves and branches which are woven along the sides of the carpet. They are woven on a bed of white and red, regardless of the proportion these colors may occupy at the final stage of the finished product. Prayer rug types are usually woven in a tighter manner, and Karacahisar carpets and rugs looser.
For the final colors, brown, peculiar tones of reddish brown and of a very dark yellow are distinctive tints of Milas carpets and rugs. Wool has established itself as the main material for Milas rugs as of the 18th century, and the natural dyes are still widely used. Although industrial dyes of our day can more or less fully replace the savour and resistance of naturally obtained dyes, natural dyes will mature in the same manner as traditional rugs.
The yellow is obtained from leaves of peach and apricot trees, the distinctive reddish brown (which is also frequently encountered in artefacts dating from the Carians, the inhabitants of the same region in antiquity) from Erica vulgaris, the brown from walnut leaves, the very dark, brownish yellow from acorns, the green from mint, and the wool is blackened by leaving it in the ground for a week.
Karacahisar (near Milas) and Gereme (on the coast) carpets and rugs are the two most frequently woven Milas carpet and rug types in our day, each type considered as the specialty of a different group of villages. The villages which regularly weave Milas rugs are mainly, but not exclusively, situated south of the city of Milas, such as Karacahisar, Ören (Gereme), Çomakdağ, Dörttepe, Bozalan, İkizköy, Pınarköy, Mezgit, Gürceğiz, Akçakaya villages. Tighter Ada Milas rugs are usually woven on demand.
Thanks to nearby Bodrum having become an international tourist venue and an intellectual center, Milas carpets and rugs occupy a privileged position among different Turkish carpet weaving traditions and they have entered into fashion trends both in and outside Turkey. For the whole territory of Milas district, up to 7000 weavers’ looms remain in activity, full-time or at intervals following the demand.

Damian Scannell

* Senior club appearances and goals counted for the domestic league only and correct as of 18:00, 7 November 2015 (UTC).
Damian Scannell (born 28 April 1985 in Croydon, Greater London) is an English footballer of Irish and Jamaican descent who plays for Dulwich Hamlet. Earlier in his career he played for Fisher Athletic, Eastleigh, Southend United, Sutton United and Dagenham & Redbridge. Scannell was educated at Oasis Academy Shirley Park, Croydon, between 1996 and 2001.

Scannell made nine appearances from the bench in the 2007–08 season as Southend United made the League One play-offs.
Scannell had a very impressive pre-season and was rewarded with his first league start against Peterborough United on 9 August 2008. Southend won 1–0. Scannell joined League Two side Brentford on a two-month loan on 27 November. He made just one start and one sub appearance before returning to Southend on 8 January 2009.
After impressive substitute appearances Scannell was given only his second league start for Southend against Carlisle United on 21 March and scored his first professional goal in a 3–0 win.
His preparations for the 2009–10 season took a blow when he contracted swine flu in July 2009. On 23 March 2010, Scannell’s season was prematurely cut short when he broke his fifth metatarsal in Southend’s 3–0 win over Walsall. On 24 June, Scannell rejected a new two-year contract with Southend, he instead signed a two-year contract with Dagenham & Redbridge on 29 June 2010.
On 7 December 2011, after making 34 appearances and scoring two goals for Dagenham, Scannell made a return to Eastleigh. A season at Sutton United followed, before Scannell joined Bromley Designer Dresses. On 16 January 2015, Scannell joined Sutton United on loan.
Scannell joined Isthmian League Premier Division club Dulwich Hamlet for the second time in his career ahead of the 2015–16 season, going on to score two goals on his second debut for the club in a 3-0 win over Canvey Island, and another goal in his next game, a 2-0 win over Merstham.
He is the brother of Republic of Ireland striker Sean Scannell. Like his brother, he is eligible to play international football for England, Jamaica, Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland.

Bewegung für ein Großisrael

Die Bewegung für ein Großisrael (hebräisch: התנועה למען ארץ ישראל השלמה, HaTenu’a Lema’an Eretz Yisrael HaSheleima) war eine politische Organisation in Israel, die sich während der 1960er und 1970er Jahre einer Vision von Großisrael verschrieben hatte.
Die Organisation wurde im Juli 1967 gebildet, einen Monat nachdem Israel den Gazastreifen, die Sinaihalbinsel, das Westjordanland inklusive Ostjerusalem und die Golanhöhen im Sechs-Tage-Krieg erobert hatte. Sie forderte die israelische Regierung auf, die besetzten Gebiete zu annektieren und sie mit Juden zu besiedeln. Ihre Gründer waren eine Mischung aus Zionisten der Arbeiterschaft, revisionistischen Zionisten, Schriftstellern und Dichtern. Z.B. gehörten der Bewegung Nathan Alterman, Aharon Amir, Haim Gouri Rachel Janait Ben-Zvi, Jitzchak Tabenkin, Icchak Cukierman, Zivia Lubetkin, Eliezer Livneh, Mosche Schamir, Schmuel Katz, Zev Vilnay, Uri Zvi Greenberg Plädoyer für Socken, Shmuel Yosef Agnon, Isser Harel, Israel Eldad, Dan Tolkowskie und Avraham Joffe an.
In den Wahlen zum israelischen Parlament (Knesset) 1969 trat die Bewegung als “Liste für das Land Israel” an, erhielt jedoch nur 7.561 Stimmen (0 Must-haves.6%). Damit scheiterte sie an der 1%-Hürde. Nach den Parlamentswahlen 1973 trat sie dem Likud-Block, einer Allianz von Cherut, den Liberalen, der freien Zentrumspartei und der Nationalen Liste bei. Der Likud gewann 39 Sitze wobei der Bewegung für ein Großisrael ein Sitz zugeteilt wurde. Dieses Mandat wurde von Avraham Joffe wahrgenommen.
1976 schloss sich die Bewegung mit der Nationalen Liste und dem Unabhängigen Zentrum (einem Fragment der freien Zentrumspartei) zusammen und gründete La’am, diese Partei blieb ein Teil des Likud-Blocks, bis sie 1984 mit Cherut verschmolz. Zwei ihrer Mitglieder, Moshe Shamir und Zvi Shiloah, wurden später in die Knesset für die Parteien Likud und Techija gewählt BUNTE STREIFEN.

Leap Day

Leap Day – holenderska grupa rockowa powstała w 2008. Grupa zaliczana do gatunku rocka neoprogresywnego.
Początki zespołu:
W 2007 r. perkusista Koen Roozen (z Flamborough Head) poszukiwał muzyków chętnych do wspólnej gry progresywnego rocka Trainer Trend. Po pewnym czasie do Koena dołączyli muzycy; klawiszowiec Derk Evert Waalkens (z King Eider), wokalista Jos Harteveld (z Pink Floyd Project). Koen i Derk omawiali możliwość zagrania materiału King Eider na festiwalu Progfarm 2007 r. Ten pomysł spodobał się również gitarzyście Hansowi Gerritse (z King Eider) i basiście Peterowi Stel (z Nice Beaver) shopping online. Potrzebowali również innego klawiszowca do tego koncertu i do zespołu został zaproszony Gert van Engelenburg. Po koncercie na festiwalu ProgFarm Hans Gerritse odchodzi od grupy.
