Semnan, Iran

. In addition to infrastructural growth, some Qajar royals built their castles in the city. Semnan was also an important medical center for members of the Qajar Imperial Family and was home to many notable physicians and doctors of the era. Throughout much of the Qajar era, Semnan operated under a feudalistic model organized as listed below: , ''Ostān-e Semnān'' ) is one of the 31 provinces (provinces of Iran) of Iran. It is in the north of the country, and its center is Semnan (Semnan, Iran). The province of Semnan covers an area of 96,816 square kilometers and stretches along the Alborz mountain range and borders to Dasht-e Kavir desert in its southern parts. In 1340 Mas'ud moved against the Ja'un-i Qurban under Arghun Shah; the latter was forced to abandon Nishapur and retreat to Tus (Tus, Iran). The Sarbadars continued to mint coins in Togha Temur's name, in the hope that he would ignore this move as he was campaigning in the west again at this time. The khan, however, moved against them; his forces were destroyed, and while fleeing to Mazandaran several important figures such as 'Ala' al-Din (formerly in charge of Sabzavar), 'Adb-Allah, and Togha's own brother 'Ali Ke'un were killed. The Sarbadars gained control of Jajarm, Damghan and Simnan (Semnan, Iran), along with Togha's capital of Gurgan. Mas'ud and Hasan Juri, however, soon came into disagreement over several issues. Mas'ud, following the defeat of Togha Temur, gained a new suzerain in the form of Hasan Kucek of the Chobanids, as well as the latter's puppet khan Sulaiman. Mas'ud considered the move necessary; with the conquest of Simnan, the Chobanids were now neighbors. Since the Chobanids were Sunnis, however, this doubtless did not go over well with Mas'ud's co-ruler.

Luxor

. The '''Ebers Papyrus''', also known as '''Papyrus Ebers''', is an Egyptian medical papyrus (Egyptian medical papyri) dating to circa 1550 BC (16th century BC). Among the oldest and most important medical papyri of ancient Egypt, it was purchased at Luxor, (Thebes (Thebes (Egypt))) in the winter of 1873–74 by Georg Ebers. It is currently kept at the library (Leipzig University Library) of the University of Leipzig, in Germany. Modern history of the papyrus Like the Edwin Smith Papyrus, the Ebers Papyrus came into the possession of Edwin Smith (Edwin Smith (Egyptologist)) in 1862. The source of the papyrus is unknown, but it was said to have been found between the legs of a mummy in the Assassif district of the Theban (Thebes, Egypt) necropolis. The papyrus remained in the collection of Edwin Smith until at least 1869 when there appeared, in the catalog of an antiquities dealer, an advertisement for "a large medical papyrus in the possession of Edwin Smith, an American farmer of Luxor." (Breasted 1930) The Papyrus was purchased in 1872 by the German (Germany) Egyptologist and novelist Georg Ebers (born in Berlin, 1837), after whom it is named. In 1875, Ebers published a facsimile with an English-Latin vocabulary and introduction, but it was not translated until 1890, by H. Joachim. Ebers retired from his chair of Egyptology at Leipzig on a pension and the papyrus remains in the University of Leipzig library. An English translation of the Papyrus was published by Paul Ghalioungui. The papyrus was published and translated by different researchers (the most valuable is German edition Grundriss der Medizin der alten Ägypter, and based on this Paul Ghalioungui edition). Mediterranean warfare and the Sea Peoples Around this time large-scale revolts took place in several parts of the Eastern Mediterranean, and attempts to overthrow existing kingdoms were made as a result of economic and political instability by surrounding people who were already plagued with famine and hardship. Part of the Hittite (Hittites) kingdom was invaded and conquered by the so-called Sea Peoples whose origins - perhaps from different parts of the Mediterranean, such as the Black Sea, the Aegean and Anatolian regions - remain obscure. The thirteenth and twelfth-century inscriptions and carvings at Karnak and Luxor are the only sources for "Sea Peoples", a term invented by the Egyptians themselves and recorded in the boastful accounts of Egyptian military successes: Sandars (1978). In Middle East countries, including Lebanon, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, the word typically describes a waterfront promenade usually paralleled by a main road, such as the renowned Corniche Beirut and the Doha Corniche. In Cairo, the Corniche ("كورنيش" WikiPedia:Luxor Dmoz:Regional Africa Egypt Localities Luxor commons:الأقصر


Vienna

in Brodski Drenovac (part of Pleternica), at the time part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (Austria-Hungary), in modern Požega-Slavonia county. From 1898 to 1906, he attended grammar school in Vinkovci. During his secondary schooling, Andrija was a brilliant pupil and, at that time, he wrote his first literary attempt, published in the periodical Pobratim in 1902.

On December 23, 1911, he was awarded the title of Doctor of Universal Medicine (''doctor medicinae universae''). Born in Vienna, Antel worked mainly as a film producer in the interwar years. After World War II, he began writing and directing films on a large scale. In the late 1940s, 1950s and 1960s these were mainly comedies (comedy film) (romantic (romantic comedy film), slapstick, and or musical (musical comedy)) and ''K.u.k. films'' all of which, for Austrian and German TV stations alike, have been a staple of weekend afternoon programming ever since. In between there is quite a sober film about the Oberst (Colonel) Redl affair that shook the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy on the eve of World War I. thumb 300px Ilya Ilyich Mechnikov in his laboratory alt A bearded old man holding up a test tube.

(Image:Dr Metchnikoff in his Laboratory.jpg) The Russian zoologist Ilya Ilyich Mechnikov (1845–1916) first recognized that specialized cells were involved in defense against microbial infections. In 1882, he studied motile (motility) (freely moving) cells in the larvae of starfishes (Sea star), believing they were important to the animals' immune defenses. To test his idea, he inserted small thorns from a tangerine tree into the larvae. After a few hours he noticed that the motile cells had surrounded the thorns.

Quote: "Any one of these achievements should have been enough to guarantee him a professorship at Harvard. But Subbarao was a foreigner, a reclusive, nocturnal, heavily accented vegetarian who lived in a one-room apartment downtown, befriended only by other nocturnal recluses" and remained without a green card (United States Permanent Resident Card) throughout his life, though he would lead some of America's most important medical research during World War II


United States

'''Helen W. Gandy''' (April 8, 1897 – July 7, 1988) was an American (United States) civil servant (Civil service). She was the secretary to Federal Bureau of Investigation director J. Edgar Hoover for fifty-four years. Hoover called her "indispensable" and she exercised great behind-the-scenes influence on Hoover and the workings of the Bureau. Following Hoover's death in 1972, she spent weeks destroying his "Personal File," thought to be where the most incriminating material he used to manipulate and control the most powerful figures in Washington was kept. Various types of hammered dulcimers are traditionally played in India, Southwest Asia, China, and parts of Southeast Asia, Central Europe (Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Poland, Czech Republic, Switzerland (particularly Appenzell), Austria and Bavaria), the Balkans, Eastern Europe (Ukraine and Belarus) and Scandinavia. The instrument is also played in Great Britain (Wales, East Anglia, Northumbria) and the U.S. (United States), where its traditional use in folk music saw a notable revival in the late 20th Century. Groce, Nancy, ''The Hammered Dulcimer in America''. Washington, DC: Smithsonian, 1983. Page 72-73. Latin America In Latin America, much support developed for the Pope and his encyclical. As World Bank President Robert McNamara declared at the 1968 Annual Meeting of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank Group (Annual Meetings of the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank Group) that countries permitting birth control practices will get preferential access to resources, doctors in La Paz, Bolivia, called it insulting that money should be exchanged for the conscience of a Catholic nation. In Colombia, Cardinal Anibal Muñoz Duque declared, if American (United States) conditionality undermines Papal teachings, we prefer not to receive one cent. ''Herder Korrespondenz'', Orbis Catholicus, Freiburg, 1968, pg. 549 The Senate of Bolivia passed a resolution (Resolution (law)), stating that ''Humanae Vitae'' can be discussed in its implications on individual consciences, but, it is of greatest significance, because the papal document defends the rights of developing nations to determine their own population policies. The Jesuit Journal ''Sic'' dedicated one edition to the encyclical with supportive contributions. ''Sic'', 31, pg. 308, October 1968, pgs. 359-79 The United States inherited ''habeas corpus'' from the English common law. In England the writ was issued in the name of the monarch. When the original thirteen American colonies (Thirteen Colonies) declared independence, and became a republic based on popular sovereignty, any person, in the name of the people, acquired authority to initiate such writs. The U.S. Constitution (United States Constitution) specifically includes the ''habeas'' procedure in the Suspension Clause (Clause 2), located in Article One (Article One of the United States Constitution), Section 9. This states that "The privilege of the writ of ''habeas corpus'' shall not be suspended, unless when in cases of rebellion or invasion, the public safety may require it." United Nations On December 13, 2001, the United Nations General Assembly began elaborating an international convention against the reproductive cloning of humans. A broad coalition of States, including Spain, Italy, the Philippines, the United States, Costa Rica and the Holy See sought to extend the debate to ban all forms of human cloning, noting that, in their view, therapeutic human cloning violates human dignity. Costa Rica proposed the adoption of an international convention to ban all forms of human cloning. Unable to reach a consensus on a binding convention, in March 2005 a non-binding ''United Nations Declaration on Human Cloning'' calling for the ban of all forms of Human Cloning contrary to human dignity, was finally adopted.
