List of castles in Scotland

Craigievar Castle, Aberdeenshire This is a list of castles in Scotland. A castle is a type of fortified structure built during the Middle Ages. Scholars debate the scope of the word "castle", but usually consider it to be the private fortified residence of a lord or noble. This is distinct from a fortress, which was not a home, although this distinction is not absolute and the same structure may have had different uses from time to time. The term has been popularly applied to structures as diverse as hill forts and country houses. Over the approximately 900 years that castles were built, they took on a great many forms. In Scotland, earlier fortifications had included hill forts, brochs, and duns; and many castles were on the site of these earlier buildings. The first castles were built in Scotland in the 11th and 12th centuries, with the introduction of Anglo-Norman influence.[1] These motte and bailey castles were replaced with the first stone-built castles from around 1200.[2][3] By the late 14th centur ...more...

Scottish castles

Caerlaverock Castle, a moated triangular castle, first built in the thirteenth century Scottish castles are buildings that combine fortifications and residence, built within the borders of modern Scotland. Castles arrived in Scotland with the introduction of feudalism in the twelfth century. Initially these were wooden motte-and-bailey constructions, but many were replaced by stone castles with a high curtain wall. During the Wars of Independence, Robert the Bruce pursued a policy of castle slighting. In the late Middle Ages new castles were built, some on a grander scale as "livery and maintenance" castles that could support a large garrison. Gunpowder weaponry led to the use of gun ports, platforms to mount guns and walls adapted to resist bombardment. Many of the late Medieval castles built in the borders were in the form of tower houses, smaller pele towers or simpler bastle houses. From the fifteenth century there was a phase of Renaissance palace building, which restructured them as castle-type palace ...more...

International co-production

A train car used in the production of Sesam Stasjon, an international co-production of Sesame Street based in Norway. A co-production is a joint venture between two or more different production companies for the purpose of film production, television production, video game development, and so on. In the case of an international co-production, production companies from different countries (typically two to three) are working together. Co-production also refers to the way services are produced by their users, in some parts or entirely. History and benefits Following the Second World War, US film companies were forbidden by the Marshall Plan to take their film profits in the form of foreign exchange out of European countries. As a result, several film companies started studios and production companies in nations such as the United Kingdom and Italy to use their "frozen funds".

Japanese government-issued dollar in Malaya and Borneo

Banana banknotes in the possession of civilian internees at Batu Lintang camp, Sarawak, Borneo. The term "banana money" originates from the motifs of banana trees on the currency's 10 dollar banknote, seen here at the bottom. The Japanese government-issued dollar was a form of currency issued for use within the Imperial Japan-occupied territories of Singapore, Malaya, North Borneo, Sarawak and Brunei between 1942 and 1945. The currency was also referred informally (and with more than a trace of contempt) as banana money (Malay: duit pisang), named as such because of the motifs of banana trees on 10 dollar banknotes. The Japanese dollar was in widespread use within the occupied territories where the previous currency became a scarcity. The currency were referred to as "dollars" and "cents" like its predecessors, the Straits dollar, Malayan dollar, Sarawak dollar and British North Borneo dollar. The Japanese dollar was one of several forms of Japanese invasion money issued throughout the then newly expanded E ...more...

2-Ethylanthraquinone

2-Ethylanthraquinone is an organic compound that is a derivative of anthraquinone. It is pale yellow solid is used in the industrial production of hydrogen peroxide (HO).[1][2] Production 2-Ethylanthraquinone is prepared from the reaction of phthalic anhydride and ethylbenzene: CH(CO)O + CHEt → CH(CO)CHEt + HO. Both phthalic anhydride and ethylbenzene are readily available, being otherwise used in the large-scale production of plastics. Uses Hydrogen peroxide is produced industrially by the anthraquinone process which involves using 2-alkyl-9,10-anthraquinones for hydrogenation. Many derivatives of anthraquinone are used but 2-ethylanthraquinone is common because of its high selectivity. The hydrogenation of the unsubsituted ring can reach 90% selectivity by using 2-ethylanthraquinone. Hydrogenation follows the Riedl-Pfleiderer, or autoxidation, process: The hydrogenation of 2-ethylanthraquinone is catalyzed by palladium.

Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In

Dan Rowan and Dick Martin (1968) Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In (often simply referred to as Laugh-In) is an American sketch comedy television program that ran for 140 episodes from January 22, 1968, to March 12, 1973, on the NBC television network. It was hosted by comedians Dan Rowan and Dick Martin. Laugh-In originally aired as a one-time special on September 9, 1967, and was such a success that it was brought back as a series, replacing The Man from U.N.C.L.E. on Mondays at 8 pm (ET). The title of the show was a play on the "love-ins" or "be-ins" of the 1960s hippie culture, terms that were, in turn, derived from "sit-ins", common in protests associated with civil rights and antiwar demonstrations of the time. In 2002, Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In was ranked number 42 on TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time.[1] Laugh-In had its roots in the humor of vaudeville and burlesque, but its most direct influences were Olsen and Johnson's comedy (such as the free-form Broadway revue Hellzapoppin'), the ...more...

Anti-suicide smock

Anti-suicide smock

An anti-suicide smock, Ferguson, turtle suit, Bam Bam suit,[1] or suicide gown, is a tear-resistant single-piece outer garment that is generally used to prevent a hospitalized, incarcerated, or otherwise detained individual from forming a noose with the garment to commit suicide. The smock is typically a simple, sturdily quilted, collarless, sleeveless gown with adjustable openings at the shoulders and down the front that are closed with nylon hook-and-loop or similar fasteners. The thickness of the garment makes it impossible to roll or fold the garment so it can be used as a noose. It is not a restraint and provides modesty and warmth while not impeding the mobility of the wearer. The suit covers all private areas as the wearer is to be naked under the suit for their own protection. These items are formally known as Safety Smocks and were designed and developed by Lonna Speer in 1989 while she was a nurse working in the Santa Cruz, California, county jail.[2] Safety Smocks are now standard issue throughout ...more...

M-Modules are a mezzanine standard mainly used in industrial computers. Being mezzanines, they are always plugged on a carrier PCB that supports this format. The modules communicate with their carrier over a dedicated bus, and can have all kinds of special functions. M-Modules are standardized as ANSI/VITA 12-1996 and are especially suited for adding any kind of real-world I/O to a system in a flexible way. They are modular I/O extensions for all types of industrial computers, from embedded systems up to high-end workstations. The M-Module Interface - a fast asynchronous parallel interface - offers sophisticated functions like 32-bit data bus, burst transfers up to 100 MB/s, DMA and trigger capabilities. M-Modules also offer direct front-panel connection rather than requiring a separate adapter panel with ribbon-cable connections.

Daihatsu A-series engine

The Daihatsu A-series engine is a range of compact two-cylinder, internal combustion piston engines, designed by Daihatsu with the aid of their owner Toyota. The petrol-driven series has cast iron engine blocks and aluminum cylinder heads, and are of an SOHC lean burn design, with belt driven heads. The head design was called "TGP lean-burn", for "Turbulence Generating Pot".[1] The engine also had twin-balancing shaft, which provided smoothness equivalent to that of a traditional four-cylinder engine - although it also cost nearly as much to build.[2] The engine was developed with some haste in order to replace the dirty two-stroke "ZM" engines used in Daihatsu's earlier Kei cars, and was the first unit to take full advantage of the new 550 cc displacement limit in effect from 1 January 1976. It was first presented in May 1976, as the AB10.[3] Eventually, even a turbocharged version was produced.[4] The engine was replaced by the three-cylinder EB-series in 1985.[5] AB-series (547 cc) The AB-series is a ...more...

Split-complex number

Split-complex product × 1 j 1 1 j j j 1 In abstract algebra, a split complex number (or hyperbolic number, also perplex number, double number) has two real number components x and y, and is written z = x + yj, j2 = +1 . The conjugate of z is z∗ = x − yj. Since j2 = +1, the product of a number z with its conjugate is z z∗ = x2 − y2, an isotropic quadratic form, N(z) = x2 − y2. The collection D of all split complex numbers z = x + yj : x, y ∈ R (where j2 = +1), forms an algebra over the field of real numbers. Two split-complex numbers w and z have a product wz that satisfies N(wz) = N(w)N(z). This composition of N over the algebra product makes (D, +, ×, *) a composition algebra. A similar algebra based on R2 and component-wise operations of addition and multiplication, (R2, +, ×, xy), where xy is the quadratic form on R2, also forms a quadratic space. The ring isomorphism D → R 2 : x + y j ↦ ( x + y , x − y ) {\displaystyle D\rightarrow \mathbb {R} ^{2}\;:\quad x+yj\mapsto (x+y,x-y)} ...more...

1957 DDR-Oberliga

The 1957 DDR-Oberliga was the ninth season of the DDR-Oberliga, the first tier of league football in East Germany. Rather than in the traditional autumn-spring format the Oberliga played for six seasons from 1955 to 1960 in the calendar year format, modelled on the system used in the Soviet Union. From 1961–62 onwards the league returned to its traditional format. The league was contested by fourteen teams. SC Wismut Karl-Marx-Stadt, incidentally based at Aue and not Karl-Marx-Stadt, won the championship, the club's second consecutive one, having won the 1956 championship as well.[3][4] On the strength of the 1957 title Wismut qualified for the 1958–59 European Cup where the club was knocked out by Young Boys Bern in the quarter finals.[5] Heinz Kaulmann of ASK Vorwärts Berlin was the league's top scorer with 15 goals.[6] Table The 1957 season saw two newly promoted clubs, SC Motor Jena and SC Chemie Halle-Leuna.[7][8] Pos Club P W D L GF GA GD Pts 1 SC Wismut Karl-Marx-Stadt 26 16 4 6 49 28 +21 36 ...more...

Although its headquarters were located near Bad Sulza, between Erfurt and Leipzig in Thuringia, its sub-camps – Arbeitskommando – were spread over a wide area, particularly those holding prisoners working in the potassium mines, south of Mühlhausen. Camp history The camp was opened in February 1940 to hold Polish soldiers from the German invasion of Poland. In June 1940 many Belgian and French troops taken prisoner during the Battle of France arrived. In late 1940, soldiers from the Argylle & Sutherland Highlanders, captured at Dunkirk, were marched to the camp. In April 1941 prisoners from Yugoslavia came into camp. In 1943 British and Commonwealth soldiers came from the battles in Italy and North Africa. In September and October 1944 British and Canadian airborne troops, taken prisoner during "Operation Market Garden" at Arnhem, arrived.

Of this period, he served almost eleven years (1 January 1966 – 4 December 1976) as president (the last four years as president for life). For almost three years he reigned as self-proclaimed Emperor of Central Africa, though the country was still a de facto military dictatorship. His "imperial" regime lasted from 4 December 1976 to 21 September 1979. Following his overthrow, the Central African Republic was restored under his predecessor, David Dacko. Bokassa's imperial title did not achieve international diplomatic recognition. Born in Ubangi-Shari in French Equatorial Africa, the son of a village chief, Bokassa was orphaned at age 12. ...more...

He wrote two books on the problem of economic calculation. His first book on this subject was Rivalry and Central Planning (Cambridge University Press 1985). This book stressed the importance of the process of competitive rivalry in markets. His second book was National Economic Planning: What Is Left? (Cambridge, Massachusetts: Ballinger Publishing Company, 1985). This book dealt with the problem of non-comprehensive planning. Among his students, there are a number of "contemporary Austrian" economists: Peter Boettke, David Prychitko, Steven Horwitz, Thomas Rustici, Mark Gilbert, Ralph Rector, Emily Chamlee-Wright, Howie Baetjer and Virgil Storr.

Circe Invidiosa

Circe Invidiosa is a painting by John William Waterhouse completed in 1892. It is his second depiction, after Circe Offering the Cup to Ulysses (1891), of the Greek mythological character, Circe, this time while she is poisoning the water to turn Scylla, Circe's rival for Glaucus, "into a hideous monster". Anthony Hobson describes the painting as being "invested with an aura of menace, which has much to do with the powerful colour scheme of deep greens and blues [Waterhouse] employed so well".[1] Those colours are "near stained glass or jewels", according to Gleeson White.[2] Judith Yarnall also echoes the sentiment about the colours, and mentions an "integrity of line" in the painting. She says that taken as a pair, Waterhouse's Circes prompt the question: "is she goddess or woman?"[3] Circe Invidiosa is part of the collection of the Art Gallery of South Australia, which also owns Waterhouse's The Favourites of the Emperor Honorius.[4] Waterhouse later returned to the subject of Circe a third time with The ...more...
