Mike Davis (wrestler)

Michael Davis (November 2, 1956 – December 25, 2001) was an American professional wrestler best known as one half of the tag team Rock ’n‘ Roll RPMs with Tommy Lane which lasted several years. The RPM’s were one of the most well-known heel tag teams throughout the southern United States in promotions such as World Class Championship Wrestling and the Continental Wrestling Association based out of Memphis. Mike Davis was also a member of Kevin Sullivan’s faction known as the Army of Darkness.

Mike Davis got his start in Eddie Graham’s Championship Wrestling from Florida (CWF) promotion. He was a member of Kevin Sullivan’s faction known as the Army of Darkness. In 1984 he lost the NWA Junior Heavyweight Title to Denny Brown.

Davis started the Rock ’n‘ Roll RPMs tag team with Tommy Lane in Memphis where they wrestled in the mid 80’s before moving to the World Class promotion, which at the time was still affiliated with the NWA. They were known for their bright colored tights and hanging bandanas. The Rock ’n‘ Roll RPMs were glorified for their finishing move „The Spandex Splits“. The move was later outlawed due to extensive neck injuries. They had feuds with several teams, including another „Rock ’n‘ Roll“ tag team known as the Rock ’n‘ Roll Express. The RPMs feuded with The Fantastics over the WCWA Tag Team Championship, however they were unable to win the championship. The RPMs also competed in the CWA in Memphis, where they won two AWA Southern Tag Team titles. Teaming with Cactus Jack, the Rock-n-Roll RPMs lost a match against Hector, Chavo, and Mando Guerrero at the only AWA pay-per-view SuperClash III.

After the demise of World Class, Davis and Lane moved on to World Championship Wrestling, where they were used as jobbers. Davis later entered the Global Wrestling Federation, where in 1992, he claimed to have returned to Earth with a „Moon Rock“ after he made a bungee jump following a „Bungee“ match between Chaz Taylor and Steven Dane outside the Dallas Sportatorium.

Mike Davis formed another tag team with his brother Tom Davis known as the Dirty Davis Brothers.

In 1995, Davis returned to WCW to work once again as a ‚jobber to the stars‘, featuring on the WCW Saturday Night program.

Davis died on December 25, 2001 from a massive heart attack in Granbury, Texas, at the age of 45. He was the third World Class wrestler to die in six months (following the deaths of Terry Gordy and Chris Adams in July and October respectively).

Museumsverbund Ostfriesland

Der Museumsverbund Ostfriesland ist ein Zusammenschluss von 16 Museen, gemeinsam mit ihren Standortkommunen, in der gleichnamigen Region. Vorsitzender des Verbundes ist Jörg Furch. Geschäftsführerin ist Nina Hennig.

Der Museumsverbund wurde im Jahre 1989 als nicht eingetragener Verein gegründet. 1999 wurde er in die Ostfrieslandstiftung der Ostfriesischen Landschaft integriert. 2001 initiierte der Verbund das Projekt Museumsverbund Ostfriesland Inventarisierungs-Netzwerk (M.O.I.N.) sowie (2004–2007) das Anschlussprojekt „SAMMELN!“. Ziel war die einheitliche Erfassung und Dokumentation von Sammlungsbeständen. Im Frühjahr 2003 wurde daraufhin die erste Version der Ostfriesischen Objektdatenbank an die beteiligten Museen herausgeben. Dafür wurde der Verbund mit dem Museumspreis der Niedersächsischen Sparkassenstiftung 2003 für beispielhafte Dokumentations- und Vermittlungsarbeit ausgezeichnet.

Der Museumsverbund will die Zusammenarbeit aller Häuser fördern und setzt sich für eine Qualitätsverbesserung ein. Ein weiteres Ziel ist die vollständige Inventarisierung der Häuser, die Erstellung von Sammlungskonzepten, sowie deren Zertifizierung. Mehrfach wurden vom Museumsverbund Gemeinschaftsausstellungen aller beteiligten Häuser organisiert, so Als Friesen Preußen waren im Jahr 1997 oder die an das Themenjahr 2010 Abenteuer Wirklichkeit gekoppelte Schau Schein und Sein. Gemeinsam mit der „Federatie van Musea en Oudheidskamers in Drenthe, Groningen en Friesland“, dem Landkreis Emsland und der Oldenburgischen Landschaft gibt der Museumsverbund Ostfriesland einmal jährlich ein grenzüberschreitendes MuseumMagazin heraus.

Im Verbund haben sich 16 Museen zusammengeschlossen. Acht davon werden hauptamtlich geführt und acht ehrenamtlich geleitet. Der Beitrag der Häuser richtet sich nach den Einnahmen. Mitglieder sind:

Ella Swings Gently with Nelson

Ella Swings Gently with Nelson is a 1962 studio album by the American jazz singer Ella Fitzgerald, with an orchestra arranged and conducted by Nelson Riddle. This album is one of a pair, the other being Ella Swings Brightly with Nelson, that were released in 1962.

In 1961 Ella Fitzgerald recorded two albums with Nelson Riddle’s Orchestra. Her voice was in peak form and, even if the backup band was somewhat anonymous, Fitzgerald uplifted the 15 songs on this set; „All of Me“ was from a different obscure sampler and „Call Me Darling“ was previously unissued. Although the accent is on ballads, several of the songs are taken at medium tempos and she swings throughout. Highlights include „Georgia on My Mind,“ „The Very Thought of You,“ „It’s a Pity to Say Goodnight,“ „Darn That Dream,“ „Body and Soul“ and a cooking „All of Me.“

Murder at School

Murder at School is a detective novel by James Hilton first published in 1931. It was released in the United States the following year under the title, Was It Murder?.

Murder at School deals with the phenomenon of coincidence by posing the question of how likely it is that two brothers attending the same boarding school meet with two separate accidental deaths—and curious ones at that—within the same schoolyear. In the manner typical of the Golden Age whodunnit, the solution is only presented in the final pages of the novel. Throughout the book, an amateur sleuth and a Scotland Yard detective vie with each other to solve the riddle, with only one of them successful in the end.

Murder at School remained Hilton’s only detective novel— a brief youthful foray into crime fiction he shares with writers such as C. S. Forester (Payment Deferred, 1926; Plain Murder, 1930) and C. P. Snow (Death Under Sail, 1932).

Oakington is one of the lesser-known public schools in England, and Dr Roseveare, its headmaster, has been trying hard for seven years to improve its reputation. When, in the winter term of 1927-1928, one of the pupils is killed in his sleep by an old gas fitting falling down from the ceiling he contacts Colin Revell, an Old Boy, to discreetly investigate the matter. Not entirely convinced that there was no foul play involved but unable to pin down a motive on anyone, Revell leaves again after a few weeks, and most of the evidence is destroyed by the installation of electricity in the whole building.

A few months later Revell is shocked to learn that the deceased boy’s brother has also died under mysterious circumstances—he seems to have jumped into the school’s indoor swimming pool late at night after the water had been drained—and travels to Oakington of his own accord. Now it turns out that the closest relative of the two brothers, who have been orphans for years, is actually a teacher at Oakington, and that he stands to inherit a small fortune. At the same time Revell falls in love with that teacher’s beautiful young wife.

Over the decades, various crime writers have made use of the traditional school setting in one of their mystery novels. The following list of examples is ordered chronologically:

Lakså (Fauske)

Lakså (Lulesamisk: Laksoavvo) er en fraflyttet veiløs bygd i en dal beliggende ved Øvervatnet i Fauske kommune. Det var to gårder i dalen, Lakså ved Laksåbukta og Nordal noe lenger opp i dalen. Laksåga renner gjennom den langstrakte dalen.

Gården Lakså nevnes første gang i skattelister og folketellinger i 1665-66 og omtales da som Laxaaen Øegaard. Senere i 1801 omtales flere gårder i dalen, nemlig Laxaae, Nordre Laxaae og Lieland eller Laxaaenbakken. Det er er på denne tiden også etablert en gård lenger ut i bukten ved Øvervatnet som omtales som Laxaaemark, senere kjent som Skognes. Ved etableringen av Fauske kommune den 1. januar 1905 gis gården Lakså gårdsnummer 93, Nordal (Lakså nordre) nummer 94 og Skognes (Laksåmark) nummer 95.

Mons Petter (1807-1888) som var den fattige samen som fant kobbermalm i Sulitjelma kom fra Lakså.

I 1957 ble Sulitjelmabanen forlenget til Finneid, dermed ble det helt slutt på dampskipstrafikk på Øvervatnet som tidligere var kommunikasjonsmiddel for stedene langs innsjøen. Bygdene langs vannet ble isolert flere uker hver høst og vår når isen la seg på vannet eller den tinte opp og var usikker. Uten skipene ble det ikke mulig å ferdes med egen båt, fordi dampskipene laget farbar råk i isen. Ikke bare Lakså, men også de mindre bygdene Engan og Stifjell ble etterhvert fraflyttet.

I Lakså og Nordal brukes de gamle husene som fritidsboliger. I forbindelse med utbygging av Siso kraftverk i 1960-årene ble det bygget en anleggsvei oppover dalen.

Det var egen skole i bygda.

Slaget ved Marj Dabiq

Slaget ved Marj Dabiq (arabisk: مرج دابق, Marǧ dābiq; tyrkisk: Mercidabık Muharebesi) i nærheten av Aleppo fant sted den 24. august 1516, og stod mellom det osmanske rike under sultan Selim I på den ene side, og mamlukkene under sultanen for burdsjitterdynastiet, Al-Asjraf Qansuh al-Ghuri. på den annen. Slaget ble en osmansk seier ettersom sultan al-Ghuri falt.

Under sultan Bayezid IIs herskertid (1481 til 1512) foretok osmanene seriøse anskrengelser mot mamlukkenes innflytelse i det nordlige Syria. Etter gjentatte forutgående provokasjoner ble den lovede støtte fra safavidenes sjah Ismail I til mamlukkene til en alt for stor trussel til at osmanene kunne la være å handle. Trass i al-Ghuris forgjeves bestrebelser for å formidle mellom sultan Selim og sjah Ismail under et besøk i Aleppo formodet Selim I at al-Ghuri hellet alt for sterkt til safavidenes side.

Etter at al-Ghuris ledsagere ble myrdet ble han tydelig oppmerksom på sultan Selims holdning. Dette førte til slaget ved Marj Dabiq führte.

Etter sin seier ble sultan Selim ansett i Aleppo som frigjører fra mamlukkenes harde styre. Ennvidere førte seieren til ay Dyria åpnet seg overfor det osmanske rike.
