Ekkehard II. (St. Gallen)

Ekkehard II. († 23. April 990) auch Ekkehardus Palatinus, kam um die Mitte des 10. Jahrhunderts als Knabe ins Kloster St. Gallen und wurde als Sequenzendichter bekannt.

Er war Neffe von Ekkehard I. (Ekkehardus Decanus). Um 973 wurde er von Hadwig, Witwe von Herzog Burchard III. von Schwaben, auf den Hohentwiel berufen, um sie in Latein zu unterrichten. Hadwig ebnete Ekkehard später den Weg an den kaiserlichen Hof als Kaplan ihres Onkels Otto I. Zuletzt war er Dompropst in Mainz. Er starb am 23. April 990.

Ekkehards ungewöhnliche Laufbahn und nicht zuletzt seine privilegierte Beziehung zu der Herzogin von Schwaben stiessen bei den Mitbrüdern in St. Gallen auf reges Interesse. Zwei Generationen nach Ekkehards Tod nahm Ekkehard IV. sie in seine Klostergeschichten von St. Gallen (Casus sancti Galli) auf.

Ekkehards Leben wird im historischen Roman Ekkehard aus dem Jahr 1855 von Joseph Victor von Scheffel beschrieben, der zu einem Kultbuch des wilhelminischen Zeitalters wurde.

Nach dem Roman schrieb Johann Joseph Abert eine gleichnamige Oper, die am 11. Oktober 1878 in der Hofoper in Berlin uraufgeführt wurde.

Im Zuge des Mittelalter-Booms in den 1980er und 1990er Jahren wurde der Stoff in der sechsteiligen Fernsehserie Ekkehard von 1989 bis 1990 verfilmt (nach dem Roman von Joseph Victor von Scheffel; Coautor: Diethard Klante; Regie: Diethard Klante; Produktion: 1989 André Libik, RB).

Wilhelm Dieckmann (Politiker, 1889)

Wilhelm Dieckmann (* 31. Januar 1889 in Hannover; † 2. Juli 1947 in Berlin) war ein deutscher Politiker (SPD).

In seiner Jugend besuchte Dieckmann die Volksschule und die Fortbildungsschule in Hannover. Anschließend erlernte er von 1903 bis 1906 das Metzgerhandwerk. Nach einer kürzeren Zeit beim Militär wechselte er zum kaufmännischen Beruf. Von 1914 bis 1918 nahm Dieckmann am Ersten Weltkrieg teil, in dem er bei Lombarzyde (?) schwer verwundet wurde.

Von 1919 bis 1926 amtierte er als Parteisekretär der SPD in den Kreisen Salzwedel-Gardelegen, dann ab dem 1. Juli 1926 als Geschäftsführer der Mieter-Spar und Baugenossenschaft Salzwedel (MISPAG). 1921 wurde Dieckmann Mitglied des sächsischen Provinziallandtages, 1924 Mitglied des Stadtrates und 1925 Mitglied des Kreisausschusses von Salzwedel.

Im März 1928 zog Dieckmann im Nachrückverfahren für den verstorbenen Abgeordneten Gustav Stollberg in den im Dezember 1924 gewählten dritten Reichstag der Weimarer Republik ein, dem er bis zur Wahl vom Mai 1928 als Vertreter des Wahlkreises 10 (Magdeburg) angehörte. Ferner war Dieckmann seit 1924 Vorstandsmitglied der Stadt- und Kreissparkasse von Salzwedel.

Nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg wurde Dieckmann bei der ersten Berliner Wahl 1946 in die Stadtverordnetenversammlung gewählt, schied aber im Januar 1947 aus, da er bereits im Oktober 1946 zum Bezirksbürgermeister von Berlin-Neukölln gewählt worden war. Nach seinem überraschenden Tod im Juli wurde Richard Timm im September von der Bezirksverordnetenversammlung zum neuen Bezirksbürgermeister gewählt.

Von 1947 bis 1976 trug eine Straße in Salzwedel ihm zu Ehren den Namen Wilhelm-Dieckmann-Straße (die heutige Uelzener Straße), ebenfalls in Dresden die Walpurgisstraße von 1962 bis 1991.

Pay the Butler

Pay the Butler (20 February 1984 – 1991) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse best known for winning the 1988 Japan Cup. Bred in Kentucky, he began his racing career in France and won two of his seventeen starts before moving back to the United States as a four-year-old in the spring of 1988. He won the Red Smith Handicap on his North American debut and in November he defeated a top-class international field in the Japan Cup. He remained in training for two further seasons and ran well in several major contests but recorded only one minor win. He was retired to stud in Japan but died in 1991 after one season as a breeding stallion.

Pay the Butler was a bay horse bred in Kentucky by Robin Scully’s Clovelly Farm. He was sired by the French stallion Val de l’Orne who won the Prix du Jockey Club in 1975. His other progeny included the Queen’s Plate winners Golden Choice and La Lorgnette as well as the Hollywood Derby winner Victory Zone. Pay The Butler’s dam Princess Morvi produced several other winners including River God (also by Val de l’Orne) who won the Queen’s Vase and finished third in the St Leger. She was a descendant of the influential French broodmare L’Esperance. As a yearling, the colt was offered for sale at Keeneland in September 1985 but failed to reach his reserve price of $20,000.

As a two-year-old, Pay the Butler raced in France and failed to win in five races although he finished third in the Listed Prix Herbager at Maisons-Laffitte Racecourse. In the following year was unplaced in eight of his nine races but recorded his first victory when he won the Listed Grand Prix de Strasbourg on 28 May.

In the early part of 1988, Pay the Butler raced three times in France, winning a handicap race at Longchamp Racecourse on April 4 and was then sent to the United States to be trained by Robert J. Frankel. On his first appearance for his new trainer Pay the Butler contested the Grade II Red Smith Handicap over ten furlongs at Belmont Park on May 28 and won by a neck from Equalize. He continued to run well in the United States, finishing second in both the Bowling Green Handicap and the Man o‘ War Stakes before running unplaced in the Canadian International Stakes on October 16.

Pay the Butler was sent to Japan to contest the eighth running of the Japan Cup at Tokyo Racecourse on November and started at odds of 13.9/1 in a fourteen-runner field. There was a strong European contingent comprising Tony Bin from Italy, Moon Madness and Shady Heights (International Stakes) from Britain and Kondor (Preis von Europa, Aral-Pokal) from Germany. The other North American contenders were Salem Drive (Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap) and My Big Boy (Bernard Baruch Handicap) whilst the Southern hemisphere was represented by the New Zealand-bred gelding Bonecrusher. The best of the „home team“ appeared to be Tamamo Cross, who started favourite after wins in the Takarazuka Kinen and the Tenno Sho and the three-year-old Oguri Cap. Ridden by Chris McCarron, Pay the Butler won by half a length from Tamamo Cross, with Oguri Cap taking third just ahead of My Big Boy, Tony Bin and Moon Madness.

On his final appearance of the year, Pay the Butler finished sixth behind the Breeders‘ Cup Turf winner Great Communicator in the Hollywood Turf Cup Stakes at Hollywood Park Racetrack on December 24.

Pay the Butler failed to win in nine starts as a five-year-old in 1989 but ran well in several major turf races. He finished second in the Pan American Handicap and the Oak Tree Invitational Stakes as well as running third in the John Henry Handicap and the Bowling Green Handicap. On his final start of the year he attempted to repeat his 1988 success in the Japan Cup. He was gain ridden by McCarron and finished third of the fifteen runners behind Horlicks and Oguri Cap.

Pay the Butler began his 1990 campaign by winning an allowance race at Hollywood Park in May but failed to make any impact in five subsequent races. On his final appearance he finished fourth in an allowance at Hollywood in November.

Pay the Butler was retired from racing to become a breeding stallion in Japan but died in 1991 after one season at stud. The best of his only crop of foals was Pal Bright, a mare who recorded Grade III wins in the Niigata Kinen and the Hakodate Kinen.

Henry Brewster Stanton

Henry Brewster Stanton (June 27, 1805 – January 14, 1887) was an American abolitionist, social reformer, attorney, journalist and politician. His writing was published in the New York Tribune, the New York Sun, and William Lloyd Garrison’s Anti-Slavery Standard and The Liberator. He was elected to the New York State Senate in 1850 and 1851 tenderize meat without a mallet. His wife, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, was a world renown leading figure of the early women’s rights movement.

Stanton was born in 1805 in Preston, Connecticut, the son of Joseph Stanton and Susan M. Brewster. His father manufactured woolen goods and traded with the West Indies. He remembered his first desires for racial justice dated from his childhood, as he listened to a slave sing:

In my childhood we had a Negro slave whose voice was attuned to the sweetest cadence. Many a time did she lull me to slumber by singing this touching lament [the song of Miantonomi]. It sank deep into my breast, and moulded my advancing years. Before I reached manhood I resolved that I would become the champion of the oppressed colored races of my country.

Stanton became well known as an orator and writer, and used these skills as a journalist, attorney, and politician. In 1826, Stanton began writing for the Monroe Telegraph in Rochester, New York. It was owned by Thurlow Weed and was then promoting the presidential candidacy of Henry Clay. He began to make political speeches. Stanton also wrote for the New York Tribune, when Horace Greeley was editor, and then for the New York Sun until his death. He contributed to William Lloyd Garrison’s Anti-Slavery Standard and The Liberator.

In 1832, Stanton went to Cincinnati, Ohio, to study theology at Lane Seminary, but chose to start working in the abolitionist movement before completing his course. After his marriage, Stanton studied law under his father-in-law Daniel Cady in Johnstown, New York. After passing the bar, he became a patent attorney in Boston, Massachusetts. Both he and his wife were actively and prominently engaged in the anti-slavery movement.

His wife, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, cousin of Gerrit Smith, became very much involved in progressive social issues. She worked for temperance, the abolition of slavery, women’s rights and universal suffrage. The couple was married on May 1, 1840, and they had seven children together: Daniel Cady Stanton (1842-1891), Henry Brewster Stanton, Jr. (1844-1903), Gerrit Smith Stanton (1845-1927), Theodore Weld Stanton (1851-1925), Margaret Livingston Stanton Lawrence (1852-1938?), Harriot Eaton Stanton Blatch (1856-1940), Robert Livingston Stanton (1859-1920). Their wedding trip was spent in Europe where Henry B. Stanton was a delegate to the World’s Anti-Slavery Convention in London that began on June 12, 1840.

Due chiefly to Stanton’s ill health, the family moved to Seneca Falls, New York in 1847 underwater phone case, where they resided in a house purchased for them by Elizabeth’s father Daniel Cady. In Seneca Falls, Stanton continued his work in reform, journalism and politics, often traveling, speaking and writing on behalf of abolition. While living in Seneca Falls, Stanton helped organize the Free Soil Party (1848) and the Republican Party in 1856. He was elected as a member of the New York State Senate (25th D.) in 1850 and 1851.

Stanton was widely recognized as a premier American orator on social issues, and he was a primary spokesman for the abolitionist movement prior to the American Civil War. He was known for his skill in extemporaneous speaking. His wife reported that he was occasionally asked to speak on a random topic for the amusement of the audience.

Following the World’s Anti-Slavery Convention in 1840, Stanton spent several months on an anti-slavery European speaking tour, touring most of the principal cities of England, Scotland, Ireland and France. Throughout their lives, Henry Stanton and Elizabeth Cady Stanton traveled widely, both jointly and separately, speaking and organizing for social causes that included temperance, abolition and women’s rights. When Henry died unexpectedly of pneumonia in 1887, Elizabeth was in London speaking on behalf of voting rights for women.

Abolitionist and former slave Frederick Douglass provided Stanton’s son, Theodore, this memory of the first time he heard Henry B meat tenderizor. Stanton speak in public:

When I was escaping from bondage I was received under the humble but hospitable roof of Nathan Johnson, an old colored man….Nathan Johnson also told me all about Henry B. Stanton’s wonderful oratorical powers, and took me one evening to hear him denounce the slave system. It was one of the first abolition lectures I ever heard, and this circumstance, combined with the eloquence of the speaker, left an ineffaceable impression on my mind. Your father was then unquestionably the best orator in the anti-slavery movement. I listened to him on many other occasions, but this first one, when I was fresh from slavery, naturally touched me the most deeply.

Politically and socially active throughout his life, Stanton served as Deputy County Clerk of Monroe County, New York, for three years. He was secretary of the American Anti-Slavery Society from 1835 to 1840. Stanton was appointed Deputy Collector of the Port of New York in 1861 and held the position until 1863.

Stanton’s publications included many pamphlets on social issues. He wrote the book-length Sketches of Reforms and Reformers in Great Britain and Ireland (New York, 1849), an examination of British social conditions and activists. In addition, he was finishing the fourth edition of his autobiography Random Recollections (1885) at the time of his death from pneumonia on January 14, 1887 in New York City. He died of pneumonia at election night while it was pouring rain.

La chapelle Saint-Michel-de-Monieux est un lieu de culte roman construit dans un abri sous roche sur l’une des falaises des gorges de la Nesque à proximité de Monieux. Elle se situe sur un site archéologique daté de la préhistoire.

Saint-Michel-de-Anesca (de la Nesque) est une chapelle romane du XIIe qui se situe dans les gorges de la Nesque, à l’abri d’un vaste surplomb rocheux. Elle faisait partie de la mense de l’Abbaye de Montmajour how can meat be tenderized.

Au début du XXe siècle, un visiteur nota : « Les remous de la Nesque ont pratiqué… des creux assez profonds pour devenir de véritables cavernes, parfois superposées en plusieurs étages comme, par exemple, les trois énormes affouillements qui surplombent l’antique ermitage Saint-Michel ». La dédicace à saint Michel Archange, est traditionnelle pour les lieux de culte chrétiens, tant sur des sommets que dans des grottes ou des gorges pour les protéger des forces maléfiques, préserver les pèlerins des accidents, et les guérir des maux du corps et de l’âme. Avant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, s’y déroulait un pèlerinage le 29 septembre, jour de la fête de l’archange.

De forme rectangulaire buy meat tenderizer, cette chapelle possède une toiture en tuiles à deux pentes et trois rangs de génoise, qui la protège des ruissellements. Elle se compose d’une courte nef triangulaire et d’une abside semi-circulaire voûtée en cul-de-four. Tout l’espace de la grotte a été judicieusement utilisé comme en témoigne encore l’abside coincée sous le rocher. Sur le mur, on devine des tailles décoratives datées de l’époque de son édification.

À l’intérieur se trouve un cippe votif gallo-romain qui dut servir de support d’autel au Moyen Âge. L’abside et l’autel sont souvent recouverts de petits papiers écrits, demandant la réalisation d’un vœu. Une inscription sur le claveau central de la porte cintrée indique que la chapelle a été restaurée en 1643. C’est à cette date que ses murs furent ornés de fresques dont on distingue encore les motifs et qu’un Saint-Michel fut peint sur la porte. Au couchant de cette chapelle existait un ermitage où vécurent des ermites au cours des XVIIIe et XIXe siècle. L’entrée qui faisait communiquer avec l’ermitage a été comblée. Le crucifix placé de ce côté a été érigé en 1888.

Au-dessus, il existe deux abris sous roche qui communiquent par un pertuis creusé à la main. Les fouilles archéologiques ont prouvé qu’ils ont été occupés à l’époque préhistorique. Ces deux grottes sont accessibles par une échelle de bois et des cordes. À proximité water jugs for sports, d’autres fouilles ont mis au jour les reliefs des repas des premiers chasseurs qui fréquentaient les gorges 150 000 ans avant notre ère. Ils se nourrissaient de rhinocéros, mégacéros, auroch, cheval, cerf et élan best toothpaste dispenser. Le site voisin du Bau de l’Aubesier fouillé sous la direction de Serge Lebel de l’Université du Québec à Montréal a mis en évidence, en 2006, la présence de l’homme de Néandertal et de pré-néandertaliens.

Ossian’s Ride

Ossian’s Ride is a science fiction novel written by astrophysicist Sir Fred Hoyle in 1959.

In the 1970 of this story, Eire has become an authoritarian police state, made somewhat acceptable to the population by the vast wealth flowing from a secret and forbidden science zone occupying a large area of the South-West. Here is based the mysterious ‚Industrial Corporation of Éire‘ which has produced a range of new technologies. Its enigmatic founders are not Irish: they settled there and resist all attempts to find out who they are. A young British scientist agrees to be sent as a spy to find out just what is going on.

Although labelled as Science Fiction by the publisher, the bulk of the novel owes more to the thriller style of the John Buchan tradition hydration for running, as the Cambridge hero battles across wild Irish landscapes fighting a series of murderous thugs and secret policemen.

The science fiction denouement is confined almost to the last chapter and foreshadows the theme of Hoyle’s later A for Andromeda, though in a far more cursory manner. Also of note is the way the young hero seems to come to accept the notion of an authoritarian society ruled by a few self-appointed „supermen“.

The link with the legendary Irish hero Ossian is peripheral to the plot and is explained near the end.

Galaxy reviewer Floyd C. Gale rated the novel with five stars dry bag for camera, saying that Hoyle’s craftsmanship has „improved tremendously since his first effort“ (The Black Cloud 1957) water carriers for runners; he described the novel as „a science-mystery-spy story that has no apparent forebear in the SF repertory.“

The Byrds (box set)

The Byrds is a four-CD box set by the American rock band The Byrds that was released on October 19, 1990 by Columbia/Legacy. The compilation comprises 90 tracks and covers the band’s career from 1965 to 1971 (a period when they were signed to Columbia Records) in roughly chronological order, but excludes material from their 1973 reunion album Byrds, which was released on Asylum Records online football t shirts. The box set also includes six songs performed by a reunited line-up of The Byrds, featuring original members Roger McGuinn, David Crosby, and Chris Hillman. Of these six songs, two were recorded live at the Roy Orbison Tribute Concert on February 24, 1990 and four are new studio recordings dating from August 1990. The two other original members of The Byrds, Gene Clark and Michael Clarke, who were both still living in 1990, did not participate in the reunion.

At the time of its release, The Byrds was the first box set by a defunct rock act to be issued by Columbia Records. The compilation includes a number of rare and previously unreleased songs, many of which were later included as bonus tracks on the remastered editions of the band’s individual albums. Of special interest to fans of both The Byrds and country rock pioneer Gram Parsons, was the inclusion of six previously unreleased tracks from the recording sessions of The Byrds‘ 1968 album, Sweetheart of the Rodeo. Of these unreleased tracks, the versions of „The Christian Life“ meat mallet, „You Don’t Miss Your Water“, and „One Hundred Years from Now“ featured their original Parsons‘ lead vocals, which had been removed and replaced by McGuinn and Hillman prior to the release of the album. In the years since Sweetheart of the Rodeo was issued, these „lost“ Parsons‘ vocals had become near-legendary among fans of the band and their inclusion on The Byrds provided a major selling point for the box set.

The Byrds‘ lead guitarist Roger McGuinn served as „musical consultant“ during preparation of the set and also had a hand in deciding the final track listing. While The Byrds does provide a detailed overview of the band’s music, there has been some criticism concerning the absence of songs written by Gene Clark, who was the band’s principal songwriter in its early years. In particular, the exclusion of popular and highly regarded Clark-penned songs such as „Set You Free This Time“ and „Here Without You“ was interpreted by many fans as an attempt on McGuinn’s part to downplay Clark’s importance in the group. The additional failure of McGuinn to mention Clark in the box set’s booklet, while at the same time praising Crosby and Hillman, served to reinforce the notion that Clark was being intentionally slighted.

Upon release, the box set reached #151 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart in the U.S., during a chart stay of four weeks, but failed to reach the UK Albums Chart. A single disc selection from the box set, titled 20 Essential Tracks from the Boxed Set: 1965–1990, was also released in January 1992. The first 16 tracks on this single disc collection date from The Byrds‘ 1965 to 1971 period, while the final 4 tracks are from the 1990 reunion.

The Byrds is currently out of print but a newly revised box set, titled There Is a Season, was released on September 26, 2006 by Columbia/Legacy. While this second box set is meant to replace The Byrds, each set contains tracks that the other does not.
