Southampton

between south-central Africa and Europe before the Jet age. The journey from Ndola to Cape Town took five days. Yevele advised on repairs and new works at the castles of Southampton (1378–9), Carisbrooke (1380–85), Winchester (1390–1400), and Portchester (1384–5), and on the town walls of Canterbury (1385–6), but it is uncertain to what extent this involved him in major design work. In 1381, 1389, and 1393 Yevele's advice was sought by William of Wykeham, bishop of Winchester, who had been clerk of works at Windsor Castle from 1356 to 1361. On 29 August 1390 Yevele was made exempt from jury and other forms of service on account of his official duties and ‘great age’. '''James Zabiela''' is a DJ and producer (music producer) from Southampton in the United Kingdom. In his early years his signature style was a fusion of Breakbeat and House music, more recently however, he is regarded as a Tech House DJ although his use of Breakbeat music is still key to the more flashy parts of his sets. He is known for his turntable (Turntablism) skills, extensive use of loops and effects, and the use of Pioneer (Pioneer (company)) CDJ-2000s, EFX1000 as well as using Ableton Live with various controllers and sometimes even his iPad. Zabiela first gained fame in 2000 by winning Muzik Magazine's Bedroom Bedlam competition, Best Bedroom Bedlam DJ 2001, and has since been signed to Sasha (Sasha (DJ))'s Excession agency. Zabiela also tested the new pioneer DJM800, the CDJ1000MK3 and the EFX 1000 at the 2006 '''Frankfurt Musikmesse'''. James also helped Pioneer Electronics develop their top of the line CDJ-2000 and CDJ-900 media turntables. After the war ended, ''Oranje'' returned to her life as a passenger ship. In 1947, she recommenced the Amsterdam to Jakarta service, sailing via Southampton, England. In January 1953 on a voyage outward bound ''Oranje'' collided in the Red Sea with her Royal Rotterdam Lloyd running mate ''Willem Ruys (MS Achille Lauro)'' homeward bound heading the opposite direction. On the (later heavily criticized) abrupt and fast approach of Oranje (ships wanted to pass each other at close range for passenger amusement) Willem Ruys made an unexpected swing to left and a shameful collision was the result. It was a near-miss disaster. Oranje badly damaged her bows and due to the possibility she would be impounded for safety reasons, she was unable to call at Colombo as scheduled, and went directly to Jakarta. The passenger service to Jakarta eventually ended in 1957. The next year, in 1958, she made her first liner voyage from Amsterdam to Australia, sailing via Southampton, Suez in Egypt, and Singapore. She underwent a refit and a minor facelift in Amsterdam in 1959.
