, IMT groups across the world pursue this method in their respective Labour Parties (where they exist), some Communist Parties (Communist Party) such as those in France and Italy and, in some countries, mass parties such as the Pakistan Peoples Party. This work, however, is typically combined with independent work outside these parties and with a strong observance of not liquidating the organisation inside these parties. The IMT's section in the United States does not pursue this policy, instead supporting a campaign for a trade union-backed Labour Party. '''Giambattista della Porta''' (1535? The date of della Porta's birth is ambiguous due to mis-statements by della Porta himself, in which he claimed to have written ''Magiae naturalis'' at an incorrectly young age. – 4 February 1615), also known as Giovanni Battista Della Porta and John Baptist Porta, http: homepages.tscnet.com omard1 jportat3.html was an Italian (Italy) scholar, polymath and playwright who lived in Naples at the time of the Scientific Revolution and Reformation (Protestant Reformation). The target chosen for the operation was a fresh–water aqueduct near Calitri in southern Italy, which supplied water to a large portion of the Italian population as well as several ports used by the Italian military; it was also hoped that its destruction would hamper Italian military efforts in North Africa and Albania. The airborne troops were delivered by converted Armstrong Whitworth Whitley medium bombers to the target on 10 February, but equipment failures and navigational errors meant that a significant portion of the troops explosives, and a team of Royal Engineer (Royal Engineers) sappers, landed in the wrong area. Despite this setback the remaining members of the troop successfully destroyed the aqueduct and withdrew from the area, but were all captured by the Italian authorities within a short time; an Italian translator was tortured and executed and one paratrooper managed to escape captivity, but the rest remained as prisoners of war. The aqueduct was rapidly repaired before local water reserves ran out, ensuring that the local population and the ports were not deprived of water, and, consequently, that the Italian war efforts were not hampered. However, it served as a morale boost for the fledgling airborne establishment, and the technical and operational lessons learnt from the operation helped the development of further airborne operations. On April 6, 1961, he was elected to the Brazilian Academy of Letters (Academia Brasileira de Letras). He received the title of Doctor ''honoris causa'' from several Universities in Brazil, Portugal, Italy, Israel and France, as well as other honors in almost every South American country, including ''Obá de Xangô'' (santoon) of the Candomblé, the traditional Afro-Brazilian religion of Bahia. 1973 On 6 January 1973, ''Archerfish'' left Groton and shaped a course for the Mediterranean Sea.

He was appointed director of the International Broadcasting Electronics and Investment Group in 1979, remaining there until 1991, by which time his work had taken him to Moscow, the Netherlands, Uganda, Italy and Iceland. He unsuccessfully contested the safe Labour (Labour Party (UK)) stronghold of South Shields (South Shields (UK Parliament constituency)) at the 1987 general election (United Kingdom general election, 1987), coming in 13,851 votes behind victor David Clark (David Clark, Baron Clark of Windermere).

On 28 September, Chamberlain appealed to Hitler for a conference. Hitler met the next day, at Munich, with the chiefs of governments of France, Italy and Britain. The Czech government was neither invited nor consulted. On 29 September, the Munich Agreement was signed by Germany, Italy, France, and Britain. The Czechoslovak government capitulated on 30 September and agreed to abide by the agreement. The Munich Agreement stipulated that Czechoslovakia must cede Sudeten territory to Germany. German occupation of the Sudetenland would be completed by 10 October. An international commission representing Germany, Britain, France, Italy, and Czechoslovakia would supervise a plebiscite to determine the final frontier. Britain and France promised to join in an international guarantee of the new frontiers against unprovoked aggression. Germany and Italy, however, would not join in the guarantee until the Polish and Hungarian minority problems were settled. History Congress passed legislation in 1986 to create the Visa Waiver Program with the aim of facilitating tourism and short-term business visits to the United States, and allowing the United States Department of State to focus consular resources on addressing higher risks. The United Kingdom became the first country to participate in the Visa Waiver Program in July 1988, followed by Japan on 16 December 1988.
