): pp. 8–16 where he made a special study of the corals. Subsequently parts of Syria, Arabia and Abyssinia (Ethiopia) were examined. Some results of these travels and of the important collections that had been made were reported on by Humboldt in 1826. While in Sudan he designed the mansion of the local governor of Dongola, Abidin Bey. .

buses. Formerly run by Egged Bus Cooperative. As a Hebrew scholar he made a special study of the history of the Hebrew text, which led him to the conclusion that the vowel point (Niqqud)s and accents are not an original part of the Hebrew language, but had been inserted by the Massorete Jews of Tiberias, no earlier than the 5th century; he also concluded that the primitive Hebrew characters are those now known as the Samaritan, while the square characters are Aramaic and were substituted for the more ancient at the time of the captivity. These conclusions, published anonymously in his book ''Arcanum punctuationis revelatum'' (Leiden, 1624), were hotly contested by Johannes Buxtorf, since they conflicted with those of his father, Johannes Buxtorf senior; Elias Levita had already disputed the antiquity of the vowel points, with which neither Jerome nor the Talmud showed any acquaintance. Eighteenth-century theologian John Gill (John Gill (theologian)) in his writing, ''A Dissertation Concerning the Antiquity of the Hebrew Language, Letters, Vowel-Points and Accents'', http: books.google.com books?id 59wOAAAAIAAJ&pg PA429&lpg PA429&dq John+Gill+A+Dissertation+Concerning+the+Antiquity+of+the+Hebrew+Language&source bl&ots mI0Sbl25iI&sig 6lXYj-ZTV5e8BxpgGGbmIwabtHA&hl en&ei 11mWSY-JFcyatwejp8iwCw&sa X&oi book_result&resnum 8&ct result#v onepage&q &f false "A Dissertation Concerning the Antiquity of the Hebrew Language, Letters, Vowel-Points and Accents", John Gill(1697-1771) disputed the idea that the vowel points were invented by the Masorites, and claimed that Hebrew authorities removed the vowel points because of their rejection of Jesus as the Messiah. G.A. Riplinger, ''In Awe of Thy Word'', chapter 11 Gill shows that the name ''Jehovah'' is documented from before 200 B.C. throughout the centuries of Jewish Authorities, the early Church and the following millennium. http: books.google.com books?id 59wOAAAAIAAJ&pg PA429&lpg PA429&dq John+Gill+A+Dissertation+Concerning+the+Antiquity+of+the+Hebrew+Language&source bl&ots mI0Sbl25iI&sig 6lXYj-ZTV5e8BxpgGGbmIwabtHA&hl en&ei 11mWSY-JFcyatwejp8iwCw&sa X&oi book_result&resnum 8&ct result He argued that throughout this history the Masorites did not invent the vowel points and accents, but that they were delivered to Moses by God at Sinai, citing Karaite (Karaite Judaism) authorities (''In Awe of Thy Word, G.A.

Etruscan civilization

to the other types of constructions found in Etruria and the Tyrrhenian side of Italy, which have one cell with or without columns, as seen in Greece and the Orient. From a very early period he had been attracted to the special study of Etruscan (Etruscan civilization) remains, and had at various times given occasional expression to his opinions on individual points; but it was not till 1870 that he had the opportunity of visiting Italy and completing his equipment for a formal treatment

The last Kaffa king, Gaki Sherocho, resisted for months the combined armies of Wolde Giyorgis, Ras Damisse, and King Abba Jifar II of Jimma (Kingdom of Jimma), until he was captured 11 September 1897, and was first sent to Ankober, then to Addis Ababa. Kaffa was then held as a fief by Wolde Giyogis until 1914. ref name

wielded great influence during his long tenure of the chair not only over his pupils, but over theologian (theology)s and eastern administrators who attended his lectures. His many editions of Arabic (Arabic language) texts are of the highest value to scholars; the most important being his great edition of Tabari. Though highly averse to politics, he took a keen interest in the municipal affairs of Leiden and made a special study of elementary education. He took the leading part

and later at Redcar. Here he made a special study of the Lias (Early Jurassic) and its fossils, in conjunction with the Rev. J. F. Blake (J. F. Blake), the results being published in an important work, ''The Yorkshire Lias'' (1876), in which the life-history of the strata was first worked out in detail. On 8 April 2005, Francisco Flores (Francisco Flores Pérez) withdrew his candidacy. He alleged the race was becoming too divisive for the Mesoamerican region. He also had the fewest supporters of the three. Flores, who initially appeared a promising choice, began losing support as the negotiations progressed. Up until Flores's withdrawal from the race, the U.S. State Department maintained that it wanted a Central American ex-president, and that Flores was its choice. Flores had the endorsement of El Salvador, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and the Dominican Republic; significantly, from the earliest days of campaigning, neighboring Honduras said it would be unable to support Flores. Heade's interest in the tropics was piqued at least partly by the impact of Church (Frederic Edwin Church)'s monumental painting ''Heart of the Andes'' (1859), now in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Heade travelled in Brazil from 1863 to 1864, where he painted an extensive series of small works, eventually numbering over forty, depicting hummingbirds. He intended the series for a planned book titled "The Gems of Brazil", but the book was never published due to financial difficulty and Heade's concerns about the quality of the reproductions. Heade nevertheless returned to the tropics twice, in 1866 journeying to Nicaragua, and in 1870 to Colombia, Panama, and Jamaica. He continued to paint romantic works of tropical birds and lush foliage into his late career. Prior to his appointment, Ambassador Chowdhury completed his assignment (1996-2001) as Permanent Representative of Bangladesh to the United Nations in New York. He also served as Bangladesh's Ambassador to Chile, Nicaragua, Peru and Venezuela, as well as Bangladesh's High Commissioner to the Bahamas and Guyana. She was chosen as national president of REAL Women in 1987, and was quoted as being opposed to divorce, abortion and homosexuality. Scime supported free marriage counselling to prevent divorce, and encouraged tax breaks for single-income families to encourage stay-at-home parenting. She also expressed conservative views on foreign policy, supporting nuclear missile testing in western Canada and opposing "biased" accounts of conflicts in South Africa, El Salvador and Nicaragua. ''Toronto Star'', 15 February 1987. *Platillo Moros y Cristianos - the equivalent in Cuba *Gallo Pinto - the equivalent dish of Nicaragua and Costa Rica *Hoppin' John - the equivalent dish in the Southern United States After finishing his studies, Martino entered the Vatican (Holy See)'s diplomatic service in 1962, serving in Nicaragua, the Philippines, Lebanon, Canada, and Brazil. Contras and Central America (1985–2005) In Central America, Posada was assigned as deputy to Félix Rodríguez (Félix Rodríguez (Central Intelligence Agency)), a CIA operative who had overseen the capture of Ernesto "Che" Guevara in 1967. The pair were to coordinate drops of military supplies to the Contras, a paramilitary militia funded by the Reagan administration opposed leftist Sandinistas in Nicaragua. Posada was paid $3,000 per month plus expenses from U.S. Major General Richard Secord, who was directing operations for Oliver North. The subsequent Iran-Contra investigations cast light over U.S. operations in the region, and several of Posada's connections, including Félix Rodríguez were asked to testify.


Normandy

however not be captured. The part south of the rivers was liberated in the period September - November 1944. However, for most of the country people would have to wait until May 1945. Mainly through the influence of Brongniart he turned his attention to geology. During the years 1816-1819 he took advantage of the necessity of accompanying his associate Philippe de Girard, who was seekling out a site for establishing a textile mill near Vienna, by making a special study of the Viennese Basin, where he pointed out for the first time the presence of Tertiary strata like those of the Paris Basin (Paris Basin (geology)), but which included a series of later date. His next work (1821) was an essay on the geology of parts of Normandy, with special reference to the "Secondary"—or Mesozoic— strata, which he compared with those of southern England; in this he had the collaboration of Charles Lyell. Lester has homes in Hastings and Wednesbury. For nearly 10 years he lived aboard a 60-foot traditional stern canal boat (narrowboat) (which he nicknamed ''The Blue Pig'') during the week, while presenting his show from the BBC's Pebble Mill Studios and then The Mailbox in Birmingham. He also has a restored cottage as a third home in the Normandy region of France. Painter beginnings His second career as an artist started while he was a prisoner during World War II. While there, he passed the time sketching portraits of his fellow prisoners, and was shortly asked to do the same by guards, as well as the Commandant of the camp. His escape from prison led him back to Paris where he made his living as a peripatetic artist, in the evenings going from one café to another, drawing portraits of German soldiers, sailors, airmen of all ranks, charging but a few francs each. He plied his trade not only in Paris but traveled to the Normandy coast and Le Havre - often on bicycle. All the portraits he executed during this time had to be signed with the name ''Juvee''. By the time of Germany's defeat, Tabaud had executed over 5,000 portraits between 1942 and 1944. Gilmour directed twenty-six episodes of Allsorts continuing an interest in children's reading. With ''Three Bob for D-Day'', he went on the fortieth anniversary of D-Day to Normandy with a coach full of Liverpool riflemen to make two films. He made ''Working'' in a large psychiatric hospital. ''Playing'' is a film on children's street songs. He directed an edition of ''World in Action'', the story being, the less you earn the higher a proportion goes in tax. The '''Sompting Abbotts''' building, designed by Philip Charles Hardwick and completed in 1856, is a school. However this has been the site of one of Sompting's manor houses since Norman times, when it was owned by the abbot of Fécamp in Normandy, and later owned by the abbott of Syon Abbey in Middlesex. In 1248 the abbott of Fecamp had a prison in the village. Queen Caroline (Queen Caroline Amelia Augusta), consort of King George IV (George IV of the United Kingdom) stayed at Sompting Abbotts in 1814 on her way across the English Channel to the Continent. These bold achievements brought him two awards of the Legion of Merit. In November 1943, he took command of the 11th Amphibious Force in the United Kingdom, earning the Army's Distinguished Service Medal (Distinguished Service Medal (Army)) for his superb leadership of this amphibious Force "O" which landed and so effectively supported the Army V Corps (V Corps (United States)) on the Omaha Beach sector off the coast of Normandy in June 1944. He received a second Navy Distinguished Service Medal for command of the Southern Attack Force (Task Force 55) during the Okinawa campaign (Battle of Okinawa). In October 1945, he became Commander Amphibious Force, Pacific Fleet (United States Pacific Fleet), receiving the rank of Vice Admiral a few months later. The Friesekes' only child, daughter Frances, was born in 1914. In 1920 Frieseke and his family moved to a farm in Le Mesnil-sur-Blangy, Normandy. His art of this period concentrated on female figures, particularly nudes. While developing a more modern style, he included historical and contemporary references. He used a darker color palette and limited his use of surface patterns. In these works, his interest in chiaroscuro may be discerned. Related phrases Blason love or complaint is a rejection of Petrarchan love, which was first seen in the works of Francesco Petrarca in the fourteenth century. The term ''Blason populaire'' is a phrase in which one culture or ethnic group increases its own self-esteem by belittling others eg. Samuel Johnson's description that "The noblest prospect which a Scotsman ever sees, is the high road that leads him to England!". This term originated from Alfred Canel's travelogue ''Blason Populaire de la Normandie'' (1859), in which people from Normandy boasted about themselves while sneering at other regions. ''Blason populaire de la Normandie, comprenant les proverbes, sobriquets ou dictons relatifs à cette province'', Alfred Canel, 1859, on Google books '''Borden''' is a village situated immediately south west of Sittingbourne, Kent, from which it is separated by a small area of rural land. The history of the name is questioned. It may be derived from ''bor'' (hill) and then either from ''denu'' (valley) or ''denn'' (woodland pasture). It may also derive from "boar" "den", as it was known that the wild animals were found in the surrounding areas. Borden was first recorded in the twelfth century as ''Bordena''. It may also stem from the settlement there of the de Bourdon (now Borden) family which came from Bourdannay, in Normandy, France with William the Conqueror in 1066. A similar contention surrounds the origin of the surname, so perhaps there lies the connection. death_date Commons:Normandie


Vienna

to Italy in 1883, he had also gathered abundant materials for his own special study. In the autumn of 1880 Leo XIII had opened the secret archives of the Vatican (Vatican Secret Archives) to scholars; he had in 1879 appointed as archivist Cardinal Hergenröther. On the latter's recommendation the pope now (1 Dec., 1883) mace Denifle sub-archivist, a post which he held till his death. Since the beginning of his residence in Rome, Denifle, who found nothing there for his contemplated history of mysticism, had been investigating the career of a celebrated prophet, i.e. the Abbot Joachim of Fiore and the reasons of the condemnation of his ''Evangelium Æternum'' by the University of Paris. This led him to study the controversy between the university and the mendicant orders. As he found du Boulay (César-Egasse du Boulay)'s history of the university inaccurate, Denifle, who was a foe to adventurous statements and hasty generalizations, resolved to write a history based on original documents, and as an introduction to it, to commence with a volume on the origin of the medieval university system, for which he already had prepared copious transcripts and notes. His leading idea was that to appreciate the mystics one should understand not only the theology they had learned, but also the genius of the place where it was commonly taught. The only volume appeared in 1885 under the title ''Die Universitäten des Mittelalters bis 1400'' (''The university in the Middle Ages until 1400'') (xlv-814). The work was everywhere applauded; it led, however, to a somewhat bitter controversy. Georg Kaufmann attacked it, but was worsted by the erudite and unsparing author. The most copious collection on the subject to be found in any archives is that possessed by the Vatican (Roman Curia), and this Denifle was the first to use. Munich, Vienna, and other centres supplied the rest. Among his discoveries two may be mentioned, namely, that the universities did not, as a rule, owe their origin to cathedral schools, and that in the majority of them at first theology was not taught. The University of Paris formed an exception. Denifle had planned four other volumes; viz. a second on the development of the organization of universities, a third on the origin of the University of Paris, a fourth on its development to the end of the 13th century, and a fifth on its controversies with the mendicant orders. But the Conseil Général des Facultés de Paris, which had in 1885 decided on publishing the ''Chartularium'', or records of the University of Paris, resolved on 27 March 1887, to entrust the work of Denifle, with Emile Chatelain, the Sorbonne librarian, as collaborateur. This quite suited Denifle, for he had resolved not to write before he had collected all the relevant documents, so with the assistance of Chatelain he began his task. - Vienna Wikipedia:Vienna Commons:Category:Vienna
