champions The reported first undisputed champion was Georg Hackenschmidt, who won a series of tournaments in Europe, including a world championship tournament to win the title. Amongst the other tournaments he won were the annual major tournaments in Paris, France; Hamburg, Germany; St. Petersburg (Saint Petersburg), Russia; Elberfield, Germany; and Berlin, Germany. Hackenschmidt also defeated European Greco-Roman Champion Tom Cannon on September 4, 1902 in Liverpool, England to become the first undisputed World Heavyweight Champion. History Following German reunification, ARD expanded its membership to include public broadcasters in the territory of the former German Democratic Republic (GDR). Four public-broadcasting organizations replaced those of the former GDR: the already existing Hamburg-based Norddeutscher Rundfunk in the north; the already existing West Berlin-based SFB, now covering all of the city; the new Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk for the states of Thuringia, Saxony, and Saxony-Anhalt; and the new Ostdeutscher Rundfunk Brandenburg. Early years Adolph Coors was born in Barmen in Rhenish Prussia (Rhine_Province) on February 4, 1847, the son of Joseph Kuhrs (c1820-1862) and Helena Hein (c1820-1862). He was apprenticed at age thirteen to the book and stationery store of Andrea & Company in nearby Ruhrort from November 1860 until June 1862. His mother died on April 2, 1862. The Kuhrs family moved to Dortmund, Westphalia. In July 1862, Adolph was apprenticed for a three year period at a brewery owned by Henry Wenker in Dortmund. He was charged a fee for his apprenticeship, so he worked as a bookkeeper to pay for it. His father died on November 24, 1862. Orphaned, Adolph completed his apprenticeship and continued to work as a paid employee at the Wenker Brewery until May 1867. He then worked at breweries in Kassel, Berlin, and Uelzen in Germany. Early in 1868, he immigrated to the United States. He sailed from Hamburg to New York City and then moved to Chicago arriving on May 30, 1868. His name was changed from "Kuhrs" to "Coors". He worked in the spring as a laborer, and during the summer he worked as a brewer. In the fall and winter he worked as a fireman, loading coal into the firebox of a steam engine. In the spring and summer of 1869 he worked as an apprentice bricklayer and a stone cutter. He became foreman of John Stenger's brewery on August 11, 1869, in Naperville, Illinois, about 35 miles west of Chicago. He resigned from Stenger's brewery on January 22, 1872, and arrived in Denver in April. He worked in Denver as a gardener for a month, then on May 1, 1872 he purchased a partnership in the bottling firm of John Staderman. In the same year he bought and assumed control of the entire business. An advertisement in Corbett, Hoye & Company's Directory of the City of Denver for 1873 on page 242 showed Adolph Coors as a dealer in "bottled beer, ale, porter and cider, imported and domestic wines, and seltzer water." His place of business was located in the Tappan Block on Holladay (now Market) Street between E and F Streets (now 14th and 15th). The same directory shows that Coors lived on Curtis Street between IC and L (20th and 21st) Streets. Commons:Category:Hamburg Wikipedia:Hamburg Dmoz:Regional Europe Germany States Hamburg

Amongst the other tournaments he won were the annual major tournaments in Paris, France; Hamburg, Germany; St. Petersburg (Saint Petersburg), Russia; Elberfield, Germany; and Berlin, Germany. Hackenschmidt also defeated European Greco-Roman Champion Tom Cannon on September 4, 1902 in Liverpool, England to become the first undisputed World Heavyweight Champion. At first, their collaboration was close and produced such homogeneous work that there was little external evidence of dual authorship. What is noticeable in some of the earlier buildings by the "firm" is the replacement of the French influences which previously had shown themselves in Bodley's work, by a distinctively English style. This period of close collaboration produced the church of St. John at Tuebrook, Liverpool, soon followed and eclipsed by the churches of the Holy Angels at Hoar Cross, Staffordshire, and of St. Augustine's Church, Pendlebury, near Manchester — the former begun in 1871, the latter in 1873. They also designed a cathedral at Hobart, Tasmania. In 1966 he joined the Freddie Mack Sound which consisted of anything between ten to eighteen personnel with a full scale horn section led by baritone sax player Roger Warwick and toured Britain (United Kingdom), Ireland and France incessantly. It was here that he met drummer B.J. Wilson and bassist Alan Cartwright, both of whom were later to join Procol Harum. The band also included Liverpudlian singer Derry Wilkie who had previously topped the bill over the Beatles (The Beatles) in Germany with his band the Pressmen. The Freddie Mack Sound was so popular on the road that people would be turned away at some gigs (concert). This was certainly the case when the band appeared at Liverpool’s Cavern Club. Freddie Mack was a former American light-heavyweight boxer (Boxing) of some repute. The connection helped to get them a regular residency at English boxer Billy Walker’s Uppercut Club in Forest Gate, east London. They played with all the leading acts of the time such was The Who, Pink Floyd, The Small Faces, and Jimi Hendrix.

The 1990 collection ''In Search of Civil Society: Independent Peace Movements in the Soviet Bloc'' is structured around the transformation of the peace movements into anti-communist and dissident forces in the Soviet Union, the People's Republic of Hungary, the People's Republic of Poland, the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic and East Germany. It notably includes articles by two participants in such movements, Hungary's Miklós Haraszti and Russia's Eduard Kuznetsov. American University reviewer Laszlo Kürti called the volume "a milestone that will remain on reading lists for many years to come", but criticized Tismăneanu for not explaining neither the end of such movements nor their absence from other countries. Laszlo Kürti, "Book Review Essays. After the Wall Came Down", in DePaul University's ''Newsletter of the East European Anthropology Group'', Vol. 10, Nr. 1, Spring 1991 Writing in 1999, scholar Gillian Wylie noted that, with ''In Search of Civil Society'', Tismăneanu was one of the "few academics beyond those involved in the peace activist community" to have dealt with the topic of peace movements in Warsaw Pact countries. Gillian Wylie, "Social Movements and International Change: The Case of 'Détente from Below' ", in George Mason University's ''International Journal of Peace Studies'', Vol. 4, Nr. 2, July 1999 '''Lilia Vaygina-Efremova''' (born April 15, 1977 in Cheboksary, Chuvashia (Chuvashia Republic), Russia) is a Ukrainian (Ukraine) biathlete (biathlon).
