father suggested to Linnaeus he should bring Sohlberg to the Dutch Republic and continue to tutor him there for an annual salary. At that time, the Dutch Republic was one of the most revered places to study natural history and a common place for Swedes to take their doctoral degree; Linnaeus, who was interested in both of these, accepted. Blunt (2001) (#Blunt2001), pp. 78–79. When Linnaeus returned to Sweden on 28 June 1738, he went to Falun, where he entered into an engagement to Sara Elisabeth Moræa. Three months later, he moved to Stockholm to find employment as a physician, and thus to make it possible to support a family.

1946. He is a native of Jintan, Jiangsu Province. In 1917, he attended the Nanjing Hohai Engineering School (南京河海大學) (the present Hohai University). He was forced to leave the school, being an active participant of student activities. He then left for Shanghai to study natural sciences at Tatung University. After his graduation, he went to Aurora University (Aurora University (Shanghai)) to study French. Back to his hometown, he taught in Jintan County Elementary Secondary School (金壇縣立初級中學) for one year. During this period of time, he became the patron of the future mathematician Hua Luogeng, who was to bear a lifelong gratitude towards him. In 1925, he went to Paris, and became one of the students of Madame Curie. left thumb Front left corner of the JB Prison (Image:prison corner.jpg) The Johor Bahru Prison was designed by the then sultan, Sultan Ibrahim ibni Almarhum Sultan Abu Bakar ibni Almarhum Daeng Ibrahim (Sultan Ibrahim), who visited the prisons in Shanghai and Osaka to study the physical condition and design of their prisons.

Bavaria

Born at Bamberg, Bavaria, he came of an intellectual family, his grandfather and father having both been eminent physicians and professors of medical science; his mother's family were equally accomplished. Young Döllinger was first educated in the gymnasium (gymnasium (school)) at Würzburg, and then began to study natural philosophy at the University of Würzburg, where his father now held a professorship. In 1817 he began the study of mental philosophy and philology, and in 1818 turned to the study of theology, which he believed to lie beneath every other science. He particularly devoted himself to an independent study of ecclesiastical history, a subject very indifferently taught in Roman Catholic Germany at that time. He regretted the gradual and very natural trend of his new English allies towards extreme Ultramontane views, of which Archdeacon, afterwards Cardinal, Manning (Henry Edward Manning) ultimately became an enthusiastic advocate. In 1845 Döllinger was made representative of his university in the second chamber of the Bavarian legislature. In 1847, in consequence of the fall from power of the Abel (Karl von Abel) ministry in Bavaria, with which he had been in close relations, he was removed from his professorship at Munich, but in 1849 he was invited to occupy the chair of ecclesiastical history. In 1848, when nearly every throne in Europe was shaken by the spread of revolutionary sentiments, he was elected delegate to the national German assembly at Frankfurt - a sufficient proof that at this time he was regarded as no mere narrow and technical theologian, but as a man of wide and independent views. A sentence of excommunication was passed on Friedrich in April 1871, but he refused to acknowledge it and was upheld by the Bavarian government. He continued to perform ecclesiastical functions and maintained his academic position, becoming an ordinary professor in 1872. In 1874, he inaugurated the Old Catholic theological faculty at the University of Bern and lectured there for a year. In Bavaria, in 1882, the Minister of Public Worship, yielding to ultramontane pressure, transferred him from his chair in theology to the philosophical faculty as professor of history. By this time he had to some extent withdrawn from the advanced position which he at first occupied in organizing the Old Catholic Church, for he was not in agreement with its abolition of enforced celibacy. Membership Protestantism is the major religion in Northern (Northern Germany), Eastern and Middle Germany: the Reformed (Calvinism) branch in the extreme northwest and Lippe, the Lutheran branch in the north and south, and the United (United and uniting churches) branch in Middle and Western Germany. While the majority of Christians in Southern Germany are Roman Catholic (Roman Catholic Church), some areas in Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria are predominantly Protestant, e.g. Middle Franconia and the government region of Stuttgart (Stuttgart (region)). The vast majority of German Protestants belong to a member church of the EKD. With 25,100,727 members in 2006, "Christians in Germany 2006 around 30 percent of all Germans belong to a member church of the EKD. Statistical information "Zahlen und Fakten zum kirchlichen Leben" (EKD) Average church attendance is lower, however, with only around a million people attending a service on Sunday.

sympathies. He studied at St. Aloysius College, and learned sculpture from William Behnes. At the age of 20, he began to study natural history and later geology. He contributed illustrations to ''The Zoology of the Voyage of HMS Beagle''. During the 1840s, he produced studies of living animals in Knowsley (Knowsley Hall) Park, near Liverpool for Edward Stanley, 13th Earl of Derby. The park was one of the largest private menageries in Victorian England and Hawkins' work was later published with John Edward Gray's text as ''"Gleanings from the Menagerie at Knowsley"'' . Over the same period Hawkins exhibited four sculptures at the Royal Academy between 1847 and 1849, and was elected a member of the Society of Arts in 1846 and a fellow of the Linnean Society in 1847. Fellowship of the Geological Society of London followed in 1854. thumb right Entrance detail (Image:Jewish museum 2.jpg) The synagogue was built in the Moorish Revival style by the noted Manchester architect Edward Salomons in 1874. Although it is far from being the largest or most magnificent of the world's many Moorish revival synagogues, which include the opulent Princes Road Synagogue in Liverpool, it is considered by architectural historian H.A. Meeks to be a "jewel". H.A. Meek, The Synagogue, Phaidon, London, 1995, p.199 The style, a homage to the architecture of Moorish Spain, perhaps seemed particularly fitting for the home of a Sephardic congregation. The two tiers of horseshoe windows on the facade are emblematic of the style, and the recessed doorway and arcade of five windows on the floor above the entrance are particularly decorative. Inside, a horseshoe arch frames the heichal (aron kodesh) and polychrome columns support the galleries. The mashrabiyya latticework on the front doors is particularly fine. H.A.

and went on to study Natural Sciences at Emmanuel College (Emmanuel College, Cambridge), Cambridge University (University of Cambridge), the same college as his father and grand father. He then went on to Harvard University as a Herchel Smith scholar studying dramaturgy and play writing. Upon the resumption of competitive cricket, Tallon's chances of selection had improved due to the fates of his pre-war wicket-keeping rivals. Oldfield had long retired. Barnett, a captain (Captain (OF-2)) in the army, had been a prisoner of the Japanese at Changi (Changi Prison) in Singapore for four years. Emaciated, he slowly recovered his fitness and forced his way back into the Victorian team, but was almost 40 and intended to retire in the near future. Walker had joined the Royal Australian Air Force as a gunner and was killed in a duel with Nazi (Nazi Germany) fighter pilots over Soltau in Germany. This left Tallon as the front-runner, but there was a possibility that the selectors would opt for generational change and install a more youthful keeper like Gil Langley or Ron Saggers with an eye to the future. With the pressure of selection on his head, Tallon made eight dismissals in the first match after the resumption of cricket, against New South Wales in Brisbane, including three stumpings and three catches from the leg spin of Colin McCool, a future Test team-mate. The performance was to herald the start of a prolific bowler-wicket-keeper partnership. Tallon then scored 74 to guide Queensland to the target of 270 with four wickets in hand. Queensland won two of their seven matches and Tallon scored 305 runs at 30.50 and completed 27 dismissals to finally gain national selection. ''St. Louis'' was recommissioned on 27 February 1843 and soon joined the East India Squadron as flagship. She was at Singapore early in 1844 while the first commercial treaty with China was being negotiated. She returned to Norfolk in September 1845 after participating in the evacuation of British colonists during the Battle of Kororareka, New Zealand in March. At Norfolk the ship underwent conversion to lengthen her hull by 13 feet. Departing from Norfolk on 11 August 1848, she sailed to Rio de Janeiro, where she served on the South America Station until returning in July 1851. 200px left thumb ''USS St. Louis by Gunner Moses Lane during her cruise in the Mediterranean from 1852 to 1855.''

. ''Gimnazjum'' ends with a standardized test. Further education is encouraged, but optional and consists of either 3 years ''liceum (liceum ogólnokształcące)'', 4 years ''technikum (technikum (Poland))'', or 2 to 3 years vocational school (which may be followed by a supplementary ''liceum'' or ''technikum''). After his return, in 1853 he started to study natural sciences at the University of Jena. Like his brother Reinhold, he became active with the student corps (German Student Corps) Saxonia Jena; because of his expedition to North Africa, he received the nickname Pharaoh from his corps brothers. He graduated after four semesters in 1855 and in 1856 went on a two-year journey to Spain with his brother Reinhold. Afterwards he settled down in Leipzig as a freelance writer and wrote many scientific popularizations for Die Gartenlaube and other magazines. Apart from this, he undertook an expedition to Norway and Lapland (Sápmi (area)) in 1860. The party actively supported resistance struggles in Norway and Denmark. In northern Sweden, party-affiliated workers stole dynamite from mines and smuggled them to the Norwegian resistance. In other parts, the party gave shelter to antifascist refugees. Union between Sweden and Norway The first union between Sweden and Norway occurred in 1319 when the three-year-old Magnus (Magnus IV of Sweden), son of the Swedish royal Duke Eric and of the Norwegian princess Ingeborg, inherited the throne of Norway from his grandfather Haakon V (Haakon V of Norway) and in the same year was elected King of Sweden, by the Convention of Oslo. The boy king's long minority weakened the royal influence in both countries, and Magnus lost both his kingdoms before his death. The Swedes, irritated by his misrule, superseded him by his nephew, Albert of Mecklenburg in 1365. In Sweden, Magnus partialities and necessities led directly to the rise of a powerful landed aristocracy, and, indirectly, to the growth of popular liberties. Forced by the unruliness of the magnates to lean upon the middle classes, in 1359 the king summoned the first Swedish Riksdag (Parliament of Sweden), on which occasion representatives from the towns were invited to appear along with the nobles and clergy. His successor, Albert, was forced to go a step farther and, in 1371, to take the first coronation oath. In 1388, at the request of the Swedes themselves, Albert was driven out by Margaret I of Denmark and at a convention of the representatives of the three Scandinavian kingdoms (held at Kalmar in 1397), Margaret's great-nephew, Eric of Pomerania, was elected the common king, although the liberties of each of the three realms were expressly reserved and confirmed. The union was to be a personal, not a political union. Neither Margaret herself nor her successors observed the stipulation that in each of the three kingdoms only natives should hold land and high office, and the efforts first of Denmark (at that time by far the strongest member of the union) to impose her will on the Union's weaker kingdoms soon produced a rupture, or rather a series of semi-ruptures. The Swedes first broke away from it in 1434 under the popular leader Engelbrekt Engelbrektsson, and after his murder they elected Karl Knutsson Bonde their king under the title of Charles VIII (Charles VIII of Sweden), 1436. In 1441 Charles VIII had to abdicate in favour of Christopher of Bavaria, who was already king of Denmark and Norway; however, upon the death of Christopher in 1448, a state of confusion ensued in the course of which Charles VIII was twice reinstated and twice expelled again. Finally, on his death in 1470, the three kingdoms were reunited under Christian II of Denmark, the prelates and higher nobility of Sweden being favourable to the union. Unlike the history of Norway and Denmark, there is no agreement on a reliable date for a "unified Sweden". Historians judge differently the sources for the history of Sweden's consolidation. The earliest history blends with Norse mythology. Early primary sources are foreign; secondary sources were written at a later date. Timeframe arguments Rather than the unification of tribes under one king, others maintain that the process of consolidation was gradual. Nineteenth-century scholars saw the unification as a result of a series of wars based on evidence from the Norse sagas. For example, according to the Norwegian (Norway) ''Historia Norwegiae'' and the Icelandic historian Snorri Sturlusson, a 7th-century king called Ingjald illråde (Ingjald) burnt a number of subordinate kings to death inside his hall, thus abolishing the petty kingdoms in the consolidation of Sweden. The government of Gustav IV of Sweden was almost a pure autocracy. At his very first Riksdag (Riksdag of the Estates), held at Norrköping in March 1800, the nobility were compelled, at last, to ratify Gustav III's (Gustav III of Sweden) detested Act of Union and Security, which hitherto they had steadily refused to do. Shortly after this Riksdag rose, a notable change took place in Sweden's foreign policy. In December 1800 Denmark, Sweden and Russia (Imperial Russia) acceded to a second League of Armed Neutrality (Second League of Armed Neutrality), directed against Great Britain; and the arsenal of Karlskrona, in all probability, was only saved from the fate of Copenhagen by the assassination of the emperor Paul of Russia, which was followed by another change of system in the north. Hitherto Sweden had kept aloof from continental complications; but the arrest and execution of the Duc d'Enghien in 1804 inspired Gustav IV with such a hatred of Napoleon that when a general coalition was formed against the French emperor he was one of the first to join it. (December 3, 1804), pledging himself to send an army corps to cooperate with the English and Russians in driving the enemy out of the Netherlands and Hanover (Electorate of Hanover). But his senseless quarrel with Frederick William III of Prussia detained him in Pomerania (Swedish Pomerania); and when at last in December 1805 he led his 6,000 men towards the Elbe district the third coalition had already been dissipated by the victories of Ulm (Battle of Ulm) and Austerlitz (Battle of Austerlitz). In 1806 a rupture between Sweden and Prussia was only prevented by Napoleon's assault upon the latter power. After Jena Napoleon attempted to win over Sweden, but Gustav rejected every overture. The result was the total loss of Swedish Pomerania, and the Swedish Army itself was only saved from destruction by the ingenuity of Johan Christopher Toll. At Tilsit the emperor Alexander I of Russia had undertaken to compel "Russia's geographical enemy," as Napoleon designated Sweden, to accede to the newly established "Continental Russian System". Gustav IV naturally rejected all the proposals of Alexander to close the Baltic against the English; but took no measures to defend Finland against Russia, though, during the autumn of 1807, it was notorious (obvious) that the tsar was preparing to attack the grand duchy. On February 21, 1808 a Russian army crossed the Finnish border without any previous declaration of war. On April 2 the king ordered a general levy of 30,000 men; but while two army corps, under Armfelt and Toll, together with a British contingent of 10,000 men under Moore, were stationed in Skåne and on the Norwegian (Norway) border in anticipation of an attack from Denmark, which, at the instigation of Napoleon, had simultaneously declared war against Sweden, the little Finnish army was left altogether unsupported. Broadcast history MTV was the exclusive broadcaster of the series in the United States. In Canada, the shorts aired on MuchMusic and the third season aired a year or so later on the youth-oriented network YTV (YTV (TV channel)) in a late-night timeslot during a period when the network was trying to appeal to an older audience. In Australia, during the early- to mid-1990s, the ''Liquid Television'' shorts and the first series were shown on the program ''Eat Carpet'' on SBS (Special Broadcasting Service) television. In South East Asia the third season was broadcast in 1996 via the MTV South East Asia (MTV Southeast Asia) channel, which at the time was free to anyone with a satellite dish. In the UK, MTV (MTV UK) first showed the shorts and the 30-minute episodes from 1992. In the mid-1990s, the BBC showed the ''Liquid Television'' shorts, which included all of the ''Æon Flux'' shorts. Locomotion (Locomotion (TV channel)) played the third season repeatedly, between 1998–1999 and 2002–2003, in Spanish (Spanish language) and Portuguese (Portuguese language) for Latin America. The series was also aired on Norwegian (Norway) channel NRK2, a sister channel to state channel NRK, alongside ''The Maxx'', ''Phantom 2040'', and ''The Head'' in the late 1990s. Built in four batches, the "Finnish" Brewsters were loaded aboard four merchant ships in New York and shipped for Bergen, in Norway, in January-February 1940.
