work Sremac's period spent in Niš was his most productive period. During that period, he published ''Božićna pečenica'' (1893), ''Ivkova slava'' (1895), ''Vukadin'' (1903), ''Limunacija na selu'' (1896), ''Pop Ćira i pop Spira'' (1898), ''Čiča Jordan'' (1903), and ''Zona Zamfirova'' (1906), all characterized with local colouring, realism, humour, and satire. Because of their high dramatic quality, many of these were later dramatized, with ''Ivkova slava'', being the most successful. Sremac's characters are usually small merchants, clerks, priests, artists, and just simple folk in small Serbian towns. A realist and sharp observer, he was able to point out the changes sweeping Serbian society into a new era. Some of his stories dealing with vanishing way of life that had persisted for centuries have an unforegetable nostalgic flavor. His depiction of the patriarchal atmosphere of Serbia of his time is done in a humorous vain, but never mockingly, except when he ridicules his political opponents. Sremac's short stories reveal his love for the slowely disappearing "old way" of life. The plots are placed in his native Vojvodina, Bačka in particular, Belgrade, and mostly, southern parts of Serbia. But it is his humor for which Sremac is best known and remembered.

It is part of the crater wall of the extinct volcano that formed Lyttelton Harbour, and the peak itself is one of the notable features that give the rugged skyline of the crater rim its dramatic quality.

withdraws into a shell as soon as he meets a journalist." His taciturn character earned him the nickname of The Monk when he was racing. Magne first rode the Tour in 1927, alongside Andé Leducq in the France team. His two victories in the Tour had a dramatic quality because of the crashes, falls, bad luck and competition that he faced. He crashed in 1931 and was repeatedly attacked by the Italian Pesanti and the Belgian, Jef Demuysere. He finished the race so exhausted that he didn't start again next year. In 1934 he won again with the help of René Vietto, Georges Speicher and Roger Lapébie. Magne was the first rider to win a time trial in the Tour de France, over 80 km from La Roche-sur-Yon to Nantes in 1934. '''Georges Speicher''' (Paris, 8 June 1907 – Maisons-Laffitte, 24 January 1978) was a French (France) cyclist (road bicycle racing) who won the 1933 Tour de France along with three stage wins, and the 1933 World Cycling Championship (UCI Road World Championships). updated 24 May 2008 '''André Leducq''' (27 February 1904, Saint-Ouen, Seine-Saint-Denis - 18 June 1980) was a French (France) cyclist who won the 1930 and 1932 Tour de France. '''Henri Pélissier''' (22 January 1889 – 1 May 1935) was a French (France) racing cyclist (Bicycle racing) from Paris and champion of the 1923 (1923 Tour de France) Tour de France. In addition to his 29 career victories, he was known for his long-standing feud with Tour founder Henri Desgrange and for protesting against the conditions endured by riders in the early years of the Tour. He was killed by his lover with the gun that his wife had used to commit suicide. However the German Schlieffen Plan required that German armed forces violate Belgium's neutrality in order to outflank the French Army, concentrated in eastern France. The German Chancellor Theobald von Bethmann Hollweg dismissed the treaty of 1839 as a "scrap of paper". ''Memoirs of Prince Von Bulow (Bernhard von Bulow)—The World War and Germany's Collapse 1909-1919'', Translated from the German by Geoffrey Dunlop and F. A. Voight. Boston: Little, Brown and Company, Boston, 1932: ''There is no doubt that our invasion of Belgium, with violation it entailed of that country's sovereign neutrality, and of treaties we ourselves had signed, and the world had respected for a century, was an act of the gravest political significance. Bad was made worse when than ever by Bethman's Hollweg's speech in the Reichstag (August 4, 1914). Never perhaps, has any other statesman at the head of a great and civilized people (...) pronounced (...) a more terrible speech. Before the whole world - before his country, this spokesman of the German Government - not of the Belgian! - not of the French! - declared that, in invading Belgium we did wrong, but that necessity knows no law (...) I was aware, with this one categorical statement, we had forfeited, at a blow, the imponderabilia; that this unbelievably stupid oration would set the whole world against Germany. And on the very evening after he made it this Chancelor of the German Empire, in a talk with Sir Edward Goschen, the British Ambassador, referred to the international obligations on which Belgium relied for her neutrality as "un chiffon de papier", "a scrap of paper"...'' Throughout the beginning of the war the German army engaged in numerous atrocities against the civilian population of Belgium, and destruction of civilian property; 6,000 Belgians were killed, 25,000 homes and other buildings in 837 communities destroyed. 1,500,000 Belgians fled from the invading German army (20% of the entire Belgian population).

In America it holds "charitable organisation" status, but it's widely believed that this was obtained through blackmail too. At the time American ground forces went into combat around the world during World War II, the Army Air Force began using the L-3 in much the same manner as the observation balloon was used in France during World War I — spotting enemy troop and supply concentrations and directing artillery fire on them. It was also used for other types of liaison and transport duties and short-range reconnaissance which required airplanes that could land and take off in short distances from unprepared landing strips. Unfortunately, by the time that the United States entered the war, the Aeronca L-3 (and sister ship Taylorcraft L-2) were declared Operationally Obsolete, and never formally left for a foreign front; this was partially due to a nasty tendency for it to stall (Stall (flight)) and spin (Spin (flight)) in a left-hand turn, and partially because newer and more capable aircraft were already being pressed into service. Instead they were relegated to training fields to serve as trainers (Trainer (aircraft)) and hacks. Liaison pilots would train in an L-3 and then be moved on to the standard front-line aircraft like the Piper L-4 (Piper J-3#World War II service) or, in the case of the Army Air Corps, the Stinson L-5. *''In Nomine (In Nomine (role-playing game))'' - based on ''In Nomine Satanis Magna Veritas'' *''In Nomine Satanis Magna Veritas'' (French (France)) by Croc (Croc (game designer)) (''Siroz'') - satiric gang spy wars involving angels and demons in the contemporary world *''Incursion'' by Tri Tac Games '''Suleyman Shah''' (Ottoman Turkish (Ottoman Turkish language): سليمان شاه, Süleyman Şah - Süleyman bin Kaya Alp; (''b.'' ca. 1178 – ''d.'' 1236).

It is said that Suleyman Shah drowned in the river Euphrates in modern-day Syria. An Ottoman tomb (Tomb of Suleyman Shah) in or near Qal'at Ja'bar has historically been associated with Suleyman Shah.
