Vincent Youmans

topic

Vincent Millie Youmans (September 27, 1898 – April 5, 1946) was an American Broadway composer and Broadway producer. A leading Broadway composer of his day, Youmans collaborated with virtually all the greatest lyricists on Broadway: Ira Gershwin , Otto Harbach , Oscar Hammerstein II , Irving Caesar , Anne Caldwell , Leo Robin , Howard Dietz , Clifford Grey , Billy Rose , Edward Eliscu , Edward Heyman , Harold Adamson , Buddy De Sylva and Gus Kahn . Youmans' early songs are remarkable for their economy of melodic material: two-, three- or four-note phrases are constantly repeated and varied by subtle harmonic or rhythmic changes. In later years, however, apparently influenced by Jerome Kern , he turned to longer musical sentences and more free-flowing melodic lines. Youmans published fewer than 100 songs, but 18 of these were considered standards by ASCAP , a remarkably high percentage. Biography Youmans was born in New York City into a prosperous family of hat makers. When he was two, his father moved the



Portrait of Leo X (Raphael)

topic

The Portrait of Pope Leo X with two Cardinals is a painting by the Italian High Renaissance master Raphael , c. 1517. It is housed in the Uffizi Gallery of Florence . In contrast to works depicting classical, idealised Madonnas and figures from antiquity, this portrait shows the sitter in a realistic manner. The Pope is depicted with the weight of late middle age, while his sight appears to be strained. The painting sets up a series of visual contradictions between appearance and reality, intended by Raphael to reflect the unrest of a period of turmoil for the papacy. Martin Luther had recently challenged papal authority, listing among other grievances, Leo X's method of selling indulgences to fund work on St Peter's . The pommel on top of the Pope's chair evokes the symbolic abacus balls of the Medici family , while the illuminated Bible open on the table has been identified as the Hamilton Bible . The cardinals are usually identified as Giulio di Giuliano de' Medici and Luigi de' Rossi . References Doak, R

The bird family Petroicidae includes roughly 45 species in about 15 genera. All are endemic to Australasia : New Guinea, Australia, New Zealand and numerous Pacific Islands as far east as Samoa . For want of an accurate common name, the family is often called the Australasian robins . Within the family the species are known not only as robins but as scrub-robins and flycatchers. They are, however, only distantly related to the Old World family Muscicapidae (to which other species with such names belong) and the monarch flycatchers (Monarchidae). Characteristics Most species have a compact build with a large, rounded head, a short, straight bill, and rounded wingtips. They occupy a wide range of wooded habitats, from subalpine to tropical rainforest, and mangrove swamps to semi-arid scrubland. All are primarily insectivorous, although a few supplement their diet with seeds. Hunting is mostly by perch and pounce, a favoured tactic being to cling sideways onto a treetrunk and scan the ground below without moving

Robin Hood's Bay

topic

Robin Hood’s Bay is a small fishing village and a bay located within the North York Moors National Park, five miles south of Whitby and 15 miles north of Scarborough on the coast of North Yorkshire, England.

The pirates surrendered and Robin Hood returned the loot to the poor people in the village that is now called Robin Hood's Bay.[1] Early history By about 1000 the neighbouring hamlet of Raw and village of Thorpe (Fylingthorpe) in Fylingdales had been settled by Norwegians and Danes.

Pink robin

topic

The pink robin (Petroica rodinogaster) is a small passerine bird native to southeastern Australia . Its natural habitats are cool temperate forests of far southeastern Australia. Like many brightly coloured robins of the family Petroicidae , it is sexually dimorphic . Measuring 13.5 cm (5.3 in) in length, the robin has a small thin black bill, and dark brown eyes and legs. The male has a distinctive white crown and pink breast, grey-black upperparts, wings and tail. The belly is white. The female has grey-brown plumage. The position of the pink robin and its Australian relatives on the passerine family tree is unclear; the Petroicidae are not closely related to either the European or American robins but appear to be an early offshoot of the Passerida group of songbirds . Taxonomy Described by Belgian naturalist Auguste Drapiez in 1819, the pink robin is a member of the Australasian robin family Petroicidae , or Eopsaltridae.

Robin (name)

topic

Robin is originally a diminutive masculine given name or nickname of Robert , derived from the prefix Rob- (hrod, Old Germanic , meaning "fame"), and the suffix -in ( Old French diminutive). More recently, it is used as an independent name. The name Robin is a masculine given name, feminine given name, and a surname. In Europe , although it is sometimes regarded as a feminine name, it is generally given to boys. In 2014, 88% of babies named Robin in England were boys. In United States , it used to be more popular as a feminine name—during the 1990s, for example, it was the 325th most popular name for girls and the 693rd most popular name for boys.
