, Switzerland, England, and most recently Norway in 2005. In May 2005, the choir performed at the National Day of Prayer in front of President & Mrs. Bush in the White House. The choir frequently performs at conventions (Convention (meeting)), including past performances at the national American Choral Directors Association convention in Chicago in 1999 and Los Angeles in 2005, and the Sixth World Symposium on Choral Music in Minneapolis. The annual St. Olaf Christmas Festival has become a popular PBS broadcast, and the choir has performed on Garrison Keillor’s ''A Prairie Home Companion''. In 2007 she became the first American woman to podium in the Cyclo-cross World Championships (held in the Cyclo-cross capital of the world that year—Belgium) where she won silver between a French (France) duo composed of Maryline Salvetat (who took the gold) and Laurence Leboucher (who won the bronze). In the 2007–2008 season she began racing professionally in UCI races as she no longer had her Paralympic obligations. In the beginning of the season she routinely has won the elite women's races in the US and on November 11, in only her third ever, she won her first World Cup Race in Pijnacker, Netherlands. Compton won by a margin of 54 seconds ahead of race favorite Daphny Van Den Brand who had won the previous World Cup race in Kalmthout. Fisher has also performed with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Zubin Mehta, with a performance televised in France, and with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and the Queens Symphony Orchestra. He has recorded an album of show tunes with the London Symphony Orchestra. He was the first Israeli artist allowed to sing in the Soviet Union before perestroika. *"They do not feel any enmity against me as an individual, nor I against them. They are 'only doing their duty', as the saying goes. Most of them would never dream of committing murder in private life. On the other hand, if one of them succeeds in blowing me to pieces with a well-placed bomb, he will never sleep any the worse for it. He is serving his country, which has the power to absolve him from evil." *"One gets a better view of this question if one considers the minor point first. It is quite true that the so-called races of Britain feel themselves to be very different from one another. A Scotsman, for instance, does not thank you if you call him an Englishman. You can see the hesitation we feel on this point by the fact that we call our islands by no less than six different names, England, Britain, Great Britain, the British Isles, the United Kingdom and, in very exalted moments, Albion. Even the differences between north and south England loom large in our own eyes. But somehow these differences fade away the moment that any two Britons are confronted by a European. It is very rare to meet a foreigner, other than an American, who can distinguish between English and Scots or even English and Irish. To a Frenchman, the Breton (Brittany) and the Auvergnat seem very different beings, and the accent of Marseilles is a stock joke in Paris. Yet we speak of ‘France’ and ‘the French’, recognizing France as an entity, a single civilization, which in fact it is. So also with ourselves. Looked at from the outsider even the cockney and the Yorkshireman have a strong family resemblance." *"And even the distinction between rich and poor dwindles somewhat when one regards the nation from the outside. There is no question about the inequality of wealth in England. It is grosser than in any European country, and you have only to look down the nearest street to see it. Economically, England is certainly two nations, if not three or four. But at the same time the vast majority of the people feel themselves to be a single nation and are conscious of resembling one another more than they resemble foreigners. Patriotism is usually stronger than class-hatred, and always stronger than any kind of internationalism. Except for a brief moment in 1920 (the ‘Hands off Russia’ movement) the British working class have never thought or acted internationally. For two and a half years they watched their comrades in Spain slowly strangled, and never aided them by even a single strike (Strike action). But when their own country (the country of Lord Nuffield and Mr Montagu Norman) was in danger, their attitude was very different. At the moment when it seemed likely that England might be invaded, Anthony Eden appealed over the radio for Local Defence Volunteers. He got a quarter of a million men in the first twenty-four hours, and another million in the subsequent month. One has only to compare these figures with, for instance, the number of conscientious objectors to see how vast is the strength of traditional loyalties compared with new ones." '''Gwendal Peizerat''' (born April 21, 1972 in Bron, France) is a French ice dancer (Ice dancing). With Marina Anissina, he is the 2002 Olympic champion (Figure skating at the 2002 Winter Olympics), the 1998 Olympic bronze medalist (Figure skating at the 1998 Olympics), the 2000 World Champion (2000 World Figure Skating Championships), and a six-time French National Champion (French Figure Skating Championships). The '''Battle of Sorauren''' was part of a series of engagements in late July 1813 called the Battle of the Pyrenees in which a combined British (United Kingdom) and Portuguese (Portugal) force under Sir Arthur Wellesley (Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington) held off Marshal Soult (Jean-de-Dieu Soult)'s French (France) forces attempting to relieve San Sebastián. The HK33 series of rifles were adopted by the Brazilian Air Force (''Força Aérea Brasileira'' or FAB), the armed forces of Thailand and Malaysia where they were produced under a license agreement. The rifle was also license-built in France by MAS (Manufacture d'armes de Saint-Étienne (MAS)) and in Turkey by MKEK (Makina ve Kimya Endustrisi Kurumu). The HK33 is no longer manufactured or marketed by Heckler & Koch. The two '''Battles of the Bruch''' were engagements fought successively between a French (France) column and a body of Spanish (Spain) volunteers and mercenaries on June 4, 1808 in the Peninsular War. Heighington played in the warm up test against France and also the opening game of the 2011 Four Nations against Wales. He scored his first international try against Wales after Gareth Widdop put Heighington over the line. Heighington played in all the preliminary games of the Four Nations, scoring a further try, but was ruled out of participating in the final.
