Mardonius had been injured in the prior campaign and had fallen out of favor. The expedition (First Persian invasion of Greece#490 BC: Datis and Artaphernes' Campaign) was intended to bring the Cyclades into the Persian empire

The Play-offs were equally as unsuccessful and after an overtime win against Sutton in the Quarter-final, Raiders were expelled by Reading Rockets, losing the two game series by 3 points. thumb right 250px Silver rupee of the Bombay Presidency, in the name of the Mughal emperor Muhammad Shah (File:Bombay Presidency rupee.jpg) (ruled 1719-48), minted at Bombay in c. 1731. Most of the gold and silver coinages of the Presidencies were in the Mughal style. The first English (Kingdom of England) settlement in the Presidency known as Western Presidency was in 1618 at Surat in present-day Gujarat, when the East India Company established a factory, protected by a charter obtained from the Mughal Emperor (Mughal empire) Jahangir. In 1626 the Dutch (Netherlands) and English made an unsuccessful attempt to gain possession of the island of Bombay in the coastal Konkan region from Portugal, and in 1653 proposals were suggested for its purchase from the Portuguese. In 1661 Bombay was ceded to the Kingdom of England as part of the dowry of the ''infanta'' Catherine of Braganza on her marriage to King Charles II (Charles II of England). So lightly was the acquisition esteemed in England, and so unsuccessful was the administration of the crown officers, that in 1668 Bombay was transferred to the East India Company for an annual payment of £10, and the Company established a factory there. At the time of the transfer, powers for the island's defence and for the administration of justice were also conferred on the Company; a European regiment i.e. a regiment made up of European soldiers was enrolled; and the fortifications erected proved sufficient to deter the Dutch from their intended attack in 1673. As British trade in Bombay increased, Surat (which had been sacked by Shivaji in 1670) began its relative decline. In 1687 Bombay was placed at the head of all the Company's possessions in India. However, in 1753 the governor of Bombay became subordinate to that of Calcutta. The largest annual cultural event in the park is Portugal Day (Portugal Day (Toronto)), organized by the local residents and businesses of Portugal Village (Portugal Village, Toronto) and the Portuguese (Portugal) community of Toronto. In the northwest corner of the park there is a small reminder of the diverse Latin American character of other nearby neighbourhoods: a bust of Simón Bolívar which was donated to the city. Some countries have different coloured post boxes; in countries such as Australia, Portugal, and Russia, the colour indicates which type of mail a box is to be used for, such as 1st and 2nd class post. However, in Germany and parts of Sweden, because of postal deregulation (Deregulation), the different colours are for the different postal services. Other nations use a particular colour to indicate common political or historical ties.

of the Year for the 1987–88 season (1987–88 in English football). They were added to John Aldridge, who had signed during the previous campaign, with the three tearing Arsenal (Arsenal F.C.) apart on Beardsley's debut at Highbury for Aldridge to score after just nine minutes of the opening day of the 1987–88 (1987–88 in English football) season, 15 August 1987. Liverpool went on to win 2–1 and this would shape the rest of the season for the Reds. The new-look striker partnership of Beardsley and Aldridge took over from the long-standing partnership of Kenny Dalglish and Ian Rush, which was arguably the most successful partnership in English football during the 1980s. Rush had departed to Juventus of Italy, while player-manager Kenny Dalglish had decided only to make occasional first-team appearances from then on. Aldridge had signed during the 1986–87 season (1986–87 in English football) as Dalglish prepared to build his new strike force. thumb (Image:Matteo Maria Boiardo.gif) '''Matteo Maria Boiardo''' (1440 1 – December 20, 1494) was an Italian (Italy) Renaissance poet. thumb right 300px Military fighting against unidentified attackers believed to be loyalists of the regime (served with cakes by a civilian).

W. Bush) ; West Germany (Foreign Minister Hans Dietrich Genscher); NATO (Secretary General Manfred Wörner); the United Kingdom (Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher); Spain; Austria; the Netherlands; Italy; Portugal; Japan (the Japanese Communist Party); and the Moldavian SSR. Weapons and equipment Throughout its existence, the Nicaraguan National Guard received military assistance mainly from the United States, who provided since the late 1920s everything that the Guardia used, from uniforms and boots to rifles, artillery and vehicles. However, starting in the early 1950s, the Somozas made consistent efforts to diversify their sources of military hardware and supplies in a hope to reduce their dependence from the US. The majority of its weaponry until the mid-1970s consisted of US-made surplus ‘hand-me-downs’ from both world wars, Korea and Vietnam, partially supplemented by more modern equipment either donated or sold by Israel, Spain, Argentina and South Africa, particularly after US aid was cut in 1978. Other countries like Italy, Germany, Portugal, Paraguay, Sweden, and the Philippines were also involved in providing some form of covert aid or acted as brokers in secret arms deals. 1920–1968 The Canadian Air Force (Canadian Air Force (1920–1924)) (CAF) was established in 1920 as the successor to a short-lived two-squadron air force formed during the First World War (World War I) in Europe, also named the Canadian Air Force (Canadian Air Force (1918–1920)). The new air force, managed by the Air Board (Air Board (Canada)), was largely focused on civilian operations such as forestry, surveying (Aerial survey) and anti-smuggling patrols. In 1923, the Air Board was amalgamated into the Department of National Defence (Department of National Defence (Canada)), and one year later, the CAF was granted the royal title, becoming the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF). In the late 1920s, the air force evolved into more of a military organization. The RCAF suffered budget cuts in early 1930s, but began to rebuild throughout the latter part of the decade. However, by the end of the 1930s the RCAF was not considered a major military force. With the implementation of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan during the Second World War, the RCAF was significantly expanded to become the fourth largest allied air force. During the war the RCAF was involved in operations in Great Britain, northwest Europe, the north Atlantic, Egypt, Italy, Sicily, Malta, Ceylon, India, Burma, and with home defence. '''Scipione Borghese''' (1 September 1577 Torgil Magnuson, ''Rome in the age of Bernini'', Almqvist & Wiksell International, 1982, p. 103. – 2 October 1633) was an Italian (Italy) Cardinal (Cardinal (Catholicism)), art collector and patron of the arts. A member of the Borghese family, he was the patron of the painter Caravaggio and the artist Bernini. His legacy is the establishment of the art collection at the Villa Borghese in Rome.
