Mogadishu currency

Sultanate of Mogadishu currency. Mogadishu currency was an old coinage system minted by the medieval Sultanate of Mogadishu. Overview In order to facilitate regional trade, the Mogadishu Sultanate began minting its own coins, a move which had the effect of centralizing its commercial hegemony. The currency bears the names of 23 successive Sultans of Mogadishu. Some coins also adopted the style of the extant Fatimid and Ottoman currencies. For trade, the Ajuran Empire minted its own Ajuran currency.[1] It also utilized the Mogadishan currency originally minted by the Sultanate of Mogadishu, which later became incorporated into the Ajuran Empire during the 13th century.[2] Mogadishan coins were in widespread circulation. Pieces have been found as far away as the present-day United Arab Emirates, where a coin bearing the name of a 15th-century Somali Sultan Ali b. Yusuf of Mogadishu was excavated.

Line-crossing ceremony

U.S. Sailors and Marines participate in a line-crossing ceremony aboard USS Blue Ridge as the ship passes the Equator May 16, 2008.

Dissolution of the monasteries in Portugal

topic

Dissolution of the monasteries in Portugal

The dissolution of the monasteries in Portugal was a nationalization of the property of male monastic orders effected by a decree of 28 May 1834 enacted by Joaquim António de Aguiar at the conclusion of the Portuguese Civil War.[1] Portugal thus terminated the State sanction of masculine religious orders, and nationalized the lands and possessions of over 500 monasteries.[2] The new government hoped to distribute land and goods in the hands among the poorer landowners, but there were few who could buy.[3] See also History of Portugal (1834–1910) History of Roman Catholicism in Portugal Joaquim António de Aguiar Religion in Portugal Suppression of the monasteries, elsewhere in Europe.

Boliyan

topic

Boliyan

Boliyan or Bolis are couplets that are sung in Punjab. A Boli expresses situations, their emotions and their typical situations. Usually a boli is sung and introduced by one woman, and then the other girls form a chorus. These boliyan are usually passed down generation by generation orally. This forms a continuous and successive chain, each generation being taught by their predecessor. It is through this process that boliyan have refined and passed on from long ago. Now, boliyan have been fused with Bhangra music to spread all over the world to North America, Great Britain as well as Australia and New Zealand and mixed with all the cultures it interacts with. This has created a modern, urban style bhangra genre that is listened to by more than just North Indians. Artists such as RDB have fused the urban style of the United Kingdoms hip-hop music with traditional Punjabi beats and lyrics which models the new bhangra genre that is described above. Although women mainly sing boliyan, men also do. His Hit Sma ...more...

Cornet (organ stop)

topic

Cornet (organ stop)

A Cornet, or Jeu de Tierce, is a compound organ stop, containing multiple ranks of pipes. The individual ranks are most commonly of principal or flute tone quality. In combination, the ranks create a bright, piquant tone thought by some listeners to resemble the Renaissance brass instrument, the cornett. The Cornet is primarily used as a solo voice and the ranks of the Cornet follow the harmonic series; 8', 4', 2 2/3', 2', 1 3/5'. The 8' rank is stopped while the other ranks are open. The Cornet may contain from two ranks and up, though three, four, and especially five ranks are the most commonly found. It is the unique reedy quality created by the tierce rank (1-3/5'), perhaps in combination with the nazard (2-2/3'), that gives the cornet its distinctive sound. The stop can be found on instruments of most historical periods and geographical regions, but the cornet was particularly important in the French Classic organ (from about 1625 to the end of the eighteenth century), which might contain three or four ...more...

The Electric Ant

"The Electric Ant" is a science fiction short story by American writer Philip K. Dick. It was first published in Fantasy and Science Fiction magazine in October 1969. Plot summary Garson Poole wakes up after a flying-car-crash to find that he is missing a hand. He then finds out that he is an 'electric ant' – an "organic" robot. He further finds out that what he believes is his subjective reality is being fed to him from a micro-punched tape in his chest cavity. He experiments on this tape by adding new holes, which adds things to his reality. Convinced that his entire reality is constrained by the tape, he makes a major change to it, with a major effect on his reality. The change affects everyone else he interacts with, which raises the question of whether any of them – or he himself – are "real" at all. Dick said of the story: Again the theme: How much of what we call "reality" is actually out there or rather within our own head? The ending of this story has always frightened me... image of the rushing ...more...

Shaaron Claridge

Shaaron Claridge[1] (born Shaaron Lee Cooper; later Snead; October 1, 1938, Los Angeles County, California)[2] is a retired American second-shift radiotelephone operator or police radio dispatcher at the Van Nuys Division of the Los Angeles Police Department best known for her voice work on the Adam-12 television series. Women were primarily desired as police radio dispatchers because LAPD psychologists thought that women's voices would have a more soothing and calming effect over the airwaves. The idea was that, should an officer (male) have been pinned down by gunfire and/or wounded, yet was still within radio contact, hearing the female dispatcher's tone would help keep the officer from panicking until back-up arrived at the scene. Her husband was an LAPD motorcycle officer. For a time from the late 1960s into the late 1970s, Claridge was a voice actress credited with primarily providing police dispatch voice work for Adam-12 and also a few other television shows (i.e., Dragnet, Lou Grant and Columbo).

Husayn Pasha ibn Makki (also known as Mekkizâde Hüseyin Paşa) (died 1765) served as the Ottoman wali (provincial governor) of Damascus and Marash, and the sanjak-bey (district governor) of Gaza. He was an Arab from Gaza, and one of the few ethnic Arab governors (the other Arab governors were mostly members of the al-Azm family) who had governed Ottoman Damascus.[1] Governor of Damascus Husayn Pasha was appointed Governor of Damascus in February 1757 to replace the deposed long-time governor, As'ad Pasha al-Azm. His term in office was short-lived and marked by chaos and violence in the city of Damascus. As he entered office a price hike for bread in the city spiked due to the short supply of grain as a result of the severe winter that preceded his rule. A popular uprising protesting the prices took place in the city. Damascene notables heading to Husayn Pasha's residence to welcome him were assaulted by some protesters and vocally condemned for alleged grain hoarding and "exploiting the poor and miserable".[2 ...more...

Transformer

Transformer

Pole-mounted distribution transformer with center-tapped secondary winding used to provide "split-phase" power for residential and light commercial service, which in North America is typically rated 120/240 V.[1][2] A transformer is a static electrical device that transfers electrical energy between two or more circuits through electromagnetic induction. A varying current in one coil of the transformer produces a varying magnetic field, which in turn induces a varying electromotive force (emf) or "voltage" in a second coil. Power can be transferred between the two coils, without a metallic connection between the two circuits. Faraday's law of induction discovered in 1831 described this effect. Transformers are used to increase or decrease the alternating voltages in electric power applications. Since the invention of the first constant-potential transformer in 1885, transformers have become essential for the transmission, distribution, and utilization of alternating current electrical energy.[3] A wide ra ...more...

"Island in the Sun" was not originally planned to be on the album, but producer Ric Ocasek fought for its inclusion. It was a successful radio single and perhaps the band's biggest hit ever outside of the United States, reaching No. 31 in the UK and No. 17 in France. In January 2002, the Australian Triple J Hottest 100 ranked the song 7 in its 2001 countdown.[3] "Island in the Sun" is also the most-licensed track in the Weezer catalog.[4] In 2009, Pitchfork named it the 495th greatest song of the 2000s.[5] In late 2001, the band reworked the song's solo for their live show.

1-Phenylethylamine

1-Phenylethylamine is the organic compound with the formula CHCH(NH)CH. Classified as a monoamine, this colorless liquid is often used in chiral resolutions. Like benzylamine, it is highly basic and forms stable ammonium salts and imines. This compound may be prepared by the reductive amination of acetophenone under various standard conditions for this type of reaction. One major route for this chemical uses the Mignonac reaction, a one-pot protocol using hydrogen gas as the reducing agent:[2] The Leuckart reaction, using ammonium formate, is another method for this transformation.[3][4] See also 2-Phenylethylamine References 1-Phenylethylamine - PubChem Public Chemical Database John C.
