Fiendish dragon

Fiendish dragons are a category of planar dragons from the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, who are found on the lower planes and who tend to be evil.

The planar dragons, including the howling dragon, the pyroclastic dragon, the rust dragon, the Styx dragon, and the Tarterian dragon first appeared in Dragon #300 (October 2002). They appeared again in the Draconomicon (2003).

Howling Dragon: This dragon is found on the Windswept Depths of Pandemonium. They are very gaunt, small dragons who are covered in purple scales and have very thin, but powerful, wings. Their head is covered in a mane of bristly, violet, spines and their eyes, bright red or yellow in color, are large and demented. When another creature stares into their eyes, they can feel this dragon’s insanity.

Pyroclastic Dragon: Found in the Bleak Eternity of Gehenna, this diabolical dragon looks as if it were entirely made from brimstone. It is a heavy-bodied species with ashen colored scales. Its skin bares cracks that are red, orange, or yellow in color. Though its wings appear flimsy, they are strong enough to support the creature. Pyroclastic dragons are best described as unpredictable and destructive, much like the volcanic terrain they inhabit.

Rust Dragon: This dragon lives in the Infernal Battlefield of Acheron. It is a strange type of dragon, and usually the least evil of its kind. It somewhat resembles a bronze dragon in appearance, but it has rust-colored skin and a grotesque, wrinkled look. Its wing membranes are clear and iridescent. Normally, this dragon will eat minerals, and its breath can turn metal into rusty garbage.

Styx Dragon: This dragon inhabits most areas of the lower planes (Hades, Abyss, Gehenna, Baator). They are most common in the River Styx, but can live in almost any fetid body of water. The styx dragon has a serpentine body that’s normally a light brown color, mottled with purple on the back. In addition, they also have a lure that they use to hunt prey. Their eyes are a lurid yellow color. They lack hind legs, and their wings are too small to allow them to fly. Thus, they are one of the few true dragons who cannot fly. They cannot move well on land either, so they are best safe in the water, where they are extremely deadly.

Tarterian Dragon: A denizen of the Tarterian Realm of Carceri, the tarterian dragon is the largest and strongest of the fiendish dragons. Its face and body are both long and skeletally gaunt. Their skin appears to hang over the body, and is shaded in bands of black and gray, with an occasional line of olive green in between. Their sharp claws and teeth are pure black, and their eyes glow with a feral green light. Though their wings appear to be torn and tattered, the dragon can still fly well. Living in Carceri, this dragon’s lair appears to be like a prison, and it loves to create that image wherever it goes. Normally, it will feed on the evil fiends and condemned souls that inhabit their plane, but won’t miss an opportunity to eat any other organism. Ironically, they are polite, well mannered, and soft-spoken.

Vampiric dragon: Although not always a fiend, this type of dragon is worth mentioning because it often appears in these planes of reality. There is no natural way to create a vampire dragon, that is to say normal vampires can not infect dragons. To become a Vampiric dragon the dragon itself needs to artificially give itself the means to become one. More often than not, a dragon will become a Vampiric dragon by accident when attempting to ascend to lichhood. Dragons become several times stronger physically and mentally when they transform into Vampiric dragons, also they heal at a hyper accelerated rate especially when feeding. They also gain the ability to hypnotize and dumbfound victims with just a stare, even other dragons. But this comes at a price; they, like most vampires, may not travel under sunlight, also they cannot move far from their lairs like a regular vampire cannot move far from its coffin, and they must constantly feed on the life’s blood of other living creatures or go insane from blood thirst. Vampiric dragons look like darker versions of what they once were and tend to become very sophisticated regardless of previous race.

Hsu Feng

Hsu Feng (or Xu Feng; born 1950) is a Taiwanese-born actress, producer and business manager. In the 1970s she was one of the leading actresses of the cinemas of Hong Kong and Taiwan, in particular being known for her roles in wuxia films and her work with director King Hu. In 1981 she retired from her career as an actress, but a few years later she returned to the film industry as a producer and went on to produce several award winning movies. Among them was Chen Kaige’s Farewell My Concubine, which won the Palme d’Or (1993) and the BAFTA Award for Best Film not in the English Language (1994) and was nominated for an Academy Award and a César for best foreign film as well.

Hsu was born in Taiwan, her father was originally from Fujian and her mother from Manchuria. Her father died when she was six. Her mother remarried later and got three children from her second marriage. The family was poor and Hsu as the oldest daughter from early on felt an obligation to provide to the family’s income. To earn some money she answered to a casting ad at the age of 15. This ultimately led to a small part in King Hu’s film Dragon Gate Inn sometime later.

About 2 years later after her small role in Dragon Gate Inn at the age of 19 she got a leading part in King Hu’s classic martial arts epos A Touch of Zen. She played the daughter of general Yang, who had to flee the capital after her father was murdered by assassins of the imperial eunuch Wei. Her performance was later described by the film critic Richard Corliss (Time) as the screen’s gravest, most ravishing woman warrior. A Touch of Zen later also changed Hsu’s outlook on films. Originally she just viewed them simply as a commercial product and means to earn living, but after traveling with King Hu to the Cannes Festival to represent A Touch of Zen, she started to regard films as an art form as well. While A Touch of Zen was still in post production, Hsu starred in another film called Ten Days in Dragon City for which she received the Golden Horse Award as best new performer She continued to collaborate with King Hu in a string of films. In The Fate of Lee Khan (1973), The Valiant Ones (1975) and Raining in the Mountain (1979) she was portraying martial artists again and for her role in the ghost story Legend of the Mountains (1979) she received a nomination for the Golden Horse Award as best actress.

Aside from her work with King Hu, Hsu played in over 40 movies often portraying martial artist characters as well. She won the Golden Horse Award as best actress twice for her performances in Assassin (1976) and The Pioneers (1980).

After resigning from her career as an actress in 1981 and a hiatus from the film industry in general, Hsu embarked on a career as producer. She set up her own production company Tomson Films in 1986 and specialized primarily on the production of artistic films. Among others she produced Red Dust (1990), Five Girls and a Rope (1992), Farewell, My Concubine (1993), Red Firecracker, Green Firecracker (1994) and Temptress Moon (1996). For Red Dust she received the Golden Horse Award for the best film. Farewell, My Concubine and Temptress Moon were both directed by Chen Kaige and became international successes. In particular the former received several international awards among them the Palme d’Or (1993), the Golden Globe (1993) and BAFTA (1994) Awards for best foreign film.

Hsu served as a member of the jury at the 44th Berlin International Film Festival in 1994 and at the 61st Venice International Film Festival in 2004.

In 1976 Hsu married Chinese businessman Tong Cun-lin, with whom she has two children. At the request of her husband she withdrew from acting in the early 1980s and started to work for her husband’s business venture. In Shanghai she oversaw the construction of the Tomson Shanghai International Club luxury complex.

Джон Кларк Слэ́тер (Слейтер; англ. John Clarke Slater; 22 декабря 1900 – 25 июля 1976) — американский физик и химик-теоретик.

Джон Слейтер учился в Университете Рочестера, где получил степень бакалавра в 1920 г. В 1923 получил степень доктора философии по физике в Гарвардском университете. Затем он некоторое время проучился в Кембриджском университете и снова вернулся в Гарвард. В 1924 он вместе с Нильсом Бором и Хендриком Крамерсом разработал теорию БКС (Бора-Крамерса-Слейтера), которая подтолкнула Вернера Гейзенберга к созданию квантовой механики. В период с 1930 по 1966 работал профессором физики в Массачусетском технологическом институте, был назначен главой факультета, делал попытки превратить институт в полноценный научно-исследовательский университет. Позже он перешёл во Флоридский университет, где работал с 1966 по 1976 как профессор физики и химии.

В 1929 Слейтер предложил удобный способ выражать антисимметричные волновые функции для фермионов в виде детерминанта. Это выражение сейчас известно как детерминант Слейтера. В 1930 Слейтер ввел экспоненциальные функции для описания атомных орбиталей. Эти функции в дальнейшем стали использоваться как орбитали слэтеровского типа (STO, Slater-type orbitals). Он полагал что значение экспоненты в этих функциях отражает заряд ядра, частично экранированный электронами, и сформулировал соответствующие правила для этих значений.

В своё время Слейтер отговорил Ричарда Фейнмана от завершения Массачусетского института, полагая что ему следует отправиться в другое место «для собственного блага». Несмотря на то что Фейнман показывал себя одарённым учёным, ему приходилось бороться с институционным антисемитизмом; благодаря же рекомендации Слейтера он был принят в Принстонский университет.

Один из его учеников, Уильям Шокли, за свои работы в области физики твёрдого состояния получил Нобелевскую премию по физике.

Записи Слейтера были завещаны Американскому философскому обществу его вдовой Розой Слейтер.

Taillight shark

The taillight shark (Euprotomicroides zantedeschia) is a little-known species of dogfish shark in the family Dalatiidae, and the only member of its genus. It is known from only two specimens collected from deep oceanic waters in the southern Atlantic Ocean. A small shark with a laterally compressed body and a bulbous snout, this species has unusual adaptations that indicate a specialized lifestyle: its pectoral fins are paddle-like and may be used for propulsion, unlike other sharks, and it has a pouch-like gland on its abdomen that emits clouds of luminescent blue fluid. This shark is likely aplacental viviparous and a formidable predator for its size. The International Union for Conservation of Nature presently lacks sufficient data to assess its conservation status.

The first specimen of the taillight shark was collected by the Cape Town trawler Arum in 1963, and was initially identified as a longnose pygmy shark (Heteroscymnoides marleyi) before being recognized as a hitherto unknown species. The genus name Euprotomicroides comes from this shark’s resemblance to the pygmy shark (Euprotomicrus bispinatus). The specific epithet zantedeschia is derived from Zantedeschia aethiopica, a species of arum lily for which the trawler Arum was named.

Phylogenetic analysis based on dentition indicates that the taillight shark is the most basal member of its family, and is sister to the clade containing all other dalatiid species. Although no definitive fossil remains have been found, the taillight shark may have evolved in the early Paleocene epoch (65.5–55.8 million years ago – Mya), as part of a larger adaptive radiation of dogfish sharks into midwater habitats. The teeth of the extinct shark Palaeomicroides ursulae, found in early Campanian (83.5–70.6 Mya) deposits in Germany, closely resemble those of the taillight shark.

The two specimens of the taillight shark were caught off South Africa in a trawl operating at a depth of 458–641 m (1,503–2,103 ft), and off Uruguay in a trawl operating at a depth of 195–205 m (640–673 ft). These records suggest this shark is an inhabitant of the open ocean. However, whether the known specimens were captured near the sea bottom where the trawls operated, or from midwater as the nets were being retrieved is unclear.

The taillight shark is laterally compressed, with a long, rounded snout and large, oval eyes. The mouth is large, containing 29 tooth rows in the upper jaw and 34 tooth rows in the lower jaw. The upper teeth are small and needle-like, while the lower teeth are large and triangular, with their bases interlocking to form a continuous cutting surface. The lips are thick and fringed, though not modified to be suctorial. The five pairs of gill slits are large, and increase in size from the first to the last.

The two dorsal fins are rounded and lack spines; the first is smaller than the second and located about halfway between the pectoral and pelvic fins. The pectoral fins are enlarged into rounded paddles. The pelvic fins are small and originate at the level of the second dorsal fin; the anal fin is absent. The caudal fin has a strong lower lobe and a long upper lobe with a prominent notch near the tip. The body is covered by small, non-overlapping dermal denticles; each denticle has radial ridges converging to a round central pit. The body is dark brown above and black below, with light margins on the fins. Small, light-emitting photophores are scattered over the body. The first specimen was an immature female (originally reported incorrectly as a mature male) 17.6 cm (6.9 in) long, and the second was a mature male 41.6 cm (16.4 in) long.

The muscular, lobe-like pectoral fins of the taillight shark suggest they may be used for propulsion, in a manner more akin to that of chimaeras than other sharks, or at least for hovering in the water column. Its strongly built jaws and teeth likely allow it to tackle relatively large prey. On the belly in front of the cloaca is a pouch-like groove devoid of denticles and lined with a luminescent tissue formed into numerous, tightly packed papillae (nipple-like structures). The entrance to the pouch is a slit lined with folds of skin. In life, the pouch emits a glowing blue fluid of unknown function. Reproduction is presumably aplacental viviparous as in the other members of its family.

The taillight shark is not caught significantly by any fishery, possibly due to its small size and habitat preferences. The International Union for Conservation of Nature does not yet have enough data to assess its conservation status beyond Data Deficient.

Editio Critica Maior

Die Editio Critica Maior (ECM) ist eine kritische Ausgabe des griechischen Neuen Testaments, die durch das Institut für Neutestamentliche Textforschung erstellt wird (an dem von Kurt Aland bereits über Jahrzehnte hinweg das Novum Testamentum Graece (Nestle-Aland) erarbeitet wurde, das weltweit den Übersetzungen des Neuen Testaments zu Grunde gelegt wird).

Die ‚ECM‘ dokumentiert die griechische Textgeschichte des ersten Jahrtausends anhand der überlieferungsgeschichtlich wichtigen griechischen Handschriften, alten Übersetzungen und neutestamentlichen Zitate in der antiken christlichen Literatur. Auf der Basis genealogischer Untersuchungen des erstmals mit dieser Vollständigkeit aufbereiteten Materials wird der Ausgangstext des griechischen Neuen Testaments rekonstruiert.

Bis zum Jahr 2030 soll das Projekt Editio Critica Maior, das von der Union der deutschen Akademien der Wissenschaften gefördert wird, komplett vorliegen.

Am Institut für Neutestamentliche Textforschung (INTF) wurden, seit seiner Gründung 1959 durch Kurt Aland, auf teilweise abenteuerlichen Expeditionen bisher unbekannte und verschollene Handschriften ausfindig gemacht und abfotografiert sowie alle bisher bekannten Handschriften erfasst und katalogisiert. Das INTF gelangte so in den Besitz von über 90 % des bekannten Materials auf Mikrofilm oder Foto.

Zunächst wurde Mitte der 1980er Jahre ein Textstellenprogramm realisiert. Es schied die gleichförmigen Texte aus, die bekanntermaßen in der Überlieferung des Hochmittelalters den Hauptanteil ausmachten. Nach der Ausscheidung dieser Texte steht nun das für die Textgeschichte vor allem des ersten Jahrtausends relevante Material zur Verfügung: neben den Handschriften dieses Zeitraums auch die zahlreichen unter den späteren, die die ältere Textgeschichte spiegeln. Die eigentliche Editionsarbeit konnte beginnen. Die immer noch sehr hohe Zahl textgeschichtlich relevanter Handschriften wird nach und nach transkribiert und einem vollständigen Textvergleich unterzogen (Vollkollation). Die Ergebnisse werden in Datenbanken festgehalten. Das erlaubt erstmals eine computergestützte Erforschung des Gesamtmaterials. Dabei ist vor allem die Gewinnung genealogischer Daten von Bedeutung, die die Textgeschichte und besonders ihre Anfänge erhellen. Die spezifischen Probleme, die es bei dieser Überlieferung gibt, treten nun deutlich hervor.

Das Institut setzt auf allen Ebenen seiner philologischen Arbeit digitale Methoden ein: Handschriften werden in größtmöglicher Qualität als digitale Fotos erfasst. Diese Fotos sind Grundlage für die am Computer zu erstellenden Transkriptionen. Mittels der Software Collate wird dann die Erstellung eines kritischen Apparates vorbereitet. Neben der in Buchform publizierten Edition wird eine digitale Plattform entwickelt, die den Online-Zugriff auf alle Daten erlaubt, die während der Arbeit an den ECM gesammelt werden. Dazu gehören vor allem die diplomatischen Transkripte aller in der ECM verwendeten Handschriften und die Datenbanken, auf denen die Editio Critica Maior beruht. In Kooperation mit dem Zentrum für Informationsverarbeitung der Universität Münster und der Universitätsbibliothek werden die Ausgangsdaten so gespeichert, dass eine ständige Verfügbarkeit garantiert ist.

Im Jahre 1997 erschien die erste Teillieferung dieser Ausgabe, die von Barbara Aland herausgegeben wurde. Inzwischen liegen die „Katholischen Briefe“ (Jakobusbrief, Petrusbriefe, Johannesbriefe, Judasbrief) vor. Zurzeit sind die Apostelgeschichte und – in Kooperation mit dem International Greek New Testament Project – das Johannesevangelium in Vorbereitung. Neben der in Buchform publizierten Edition (jeweils mit den Teilbänden Text, Begleitende Materialien und Untersuchungen) wird eine digitale Plattform entwickelt, die den Online-Zugriff auf alle Daten erlaubt, die während der Arbeit an der ECM gesammelt werden. Dazu gehören vor allem die diplomatischen Transkripte aller in der ECM verwendeten Handschriften und die Datenbanken, auf denen die ECM beruht. Aber auch die Verbindung zu den Fotos im Virtuellen Handschriften-Lesesaal soll sukzessive möglich sein. Teil der digitalen Plattform werden auch Programme sein, die das Material erschließen und dem Nutzer die eigene Anwendung der Kohärenzbasierten Genealogischen Methode ermöglichen.

Die neueren Ausgaben des Nestle-Aland in der 28. Auflage und die 5. Auflage des Greek New Testament der United Bible Societies richten sich im Text nach der ECM, soweit sie bisher erschienen ist.

NGC 6216

NGC 6216 ist ein offener Sternhaufen (Typdefinition „II2p“) im Sternbild Skorpion. Er wurde am 13. Mai 1826 von James Dunlop mit einem 9-Zoll-Spiegelteleskop entdeckt, der ihn dabei mit „a faint nebula, about 4′ or 5′ diameter, irregular round figure, easily resolvable into stars; with stars of larger magnitudes scattered in the preceding side of it“ beschrieb.

John Herschel notierte im Jahr 1834 bei mehreren Beobachtungen mit einem 18-Zoll-Spiegelteleskop:
1. Juni: „a pretty rich cluster of small stars, 11th mag and under, broken up into two or three groups; fills two-thirds of field“
1. Juli: „a round cluster of 13th mag stars, gradually brighter in the middle; 4′; with two appendages of stars, north and south, making together a long cluster“
27. Juli: „pretty rich, round, pretty compressed in the middle, very little brighter in the middle, 4′ diameter, stars discrete 12..15th mag and fainter“

In der Nacht vom 3. Juni 1834 vermerkte er unter seiner eigenen Nummerierung 3650 mit leicht abweichender Position die Beobachtung „very large, very rich cluster, not brilliant, not materially compressed in the middle, full 20′ diameter, stars 12..13th mag“. Dieses Objekt erhielt von Dreyer die Katalognummer NGC 6222, die moderne Astronomie geht heute zumeist von einer Doppelbeobachtung aus.

WAGR K class (diesel)

The K class are a class of diesel locomotives built by English Electric, Rocklea for the Western Australian Government Railways between 1966 and 1969.

Nine K class were delivered in 1966/67 to operate services on the 657-kilometre (408 mi) Eastern Goldfields Railway from Perth to Kalgoorlie that was being converted to standard gauge. After initially working construction trains, in November 1966 they began working wheat trains from Merredin to Fremantle and once the full line was opened began working services to Kalgoorlie and Esperance.

In January 1966, K201 became the first locomotive to travel across Australia. It hauled freight trains from Brisbane to Melbourne, before being hauled for the rest of the journey. It passed through five states, travelled on six railway systems and required a change of bogies at Melbourne, Port Pirie and Kalgoorlie.

Goldsworthy Mining Ltd had purchased six similar locomotives, and after having one destroyed in an accident, purchased K202 with K210 ordered as a replacement. In July 1986 Goldsworth Mining purchased K203.

The Western Australian Government Railways also purchased 16 similar R class locomotives mounted on narrow gauge bogies. In 1974 three were fitted with standard gauge bogies and reclassified as the Ka class.

Four have been sold to SCT Logistics and three had gone to South Spur Rail Services by August 2000. The latter three are now owned by Greentrains and have been used as Broken Hill shunters as well as in Western Australia.

The two sold to Goldsworthy Mining were transferred to BHP’s Port Kembla operation in November 1992.


The A,A is a sculpture by artist Jim Sanborn, located on the campus of the University of Houston, adjacent to the M.D. Anderson Library.

Completed in 2004, it was installed on campus at a reported cost of $240,000. The work of art took the sculptor a year to complete.

The A,A is composed of portions of poems, novels, and prose from a number of different languages from different parts of the world. Some languages included on the art includes Arabic, Russian, Spanish, and Chinese. At night, a built-in light projector casts light through the sculpture. This causes the effect of illuminating the sculpture’s text onto the outside of the library’s walls.

In addition to the sculpture in front of the M.D. Anderson Library, there are two additions from Sanborn inside the library. These include a 24-foot-long (7.3 m) bronze scroll detailing the history of papermaking that hang from the ceiling of the first floor and bronze panels along some of the guardrails containing portions of poems and other literature.

Nieuport 21

The Nieuport 21 was a French single-seat, single-engine fighter aircraft used during World War I. The aircraft was used by the French, Russian, British and American air forces. After the war, the Nieuport 21 was a popular civil aircraft.

The Nieuport 21 was designed by Gustave Delage and it made its maiden flight in 1916. While it had a similar airframe to the Nieuport 17, it was equipped with a less powerful Le Rhône 9C engine as it was originally intended as a long range escort fighter. As the engine was fitted with a horseshoe shaped cowling, the Nieuport 21 was often mistaken for the smaller Nieuport 11, which had a similar cowling.

The Nieuport 21 served briefly as a front line fighter before its lack of power caused it to be relegated to training duties. Nieuport 21s were sold to the United States for use strictly as trainers, and Russia. They were also used in limited numbers by the RNAS. The Nieuport 21 was license manufactured in Russia by A/O Duks. A small number were used by a number of air arms in the early post war period, including the Finnish Air Force (the Whites) which had captured a Russian aircraft in Tampere in 1918 which was used until 1923. The French Navy used one example for carrier trials in 1919 and 1920.

Wyatt Earp

Wyatt Berry Stapp Earp (født 19. mars 1848, død 13. januar 1929) var en amerikansk sheriff, gambler og saloon-eier i Det ville vesten.

Earp var blant annet sheriff i gruvebyen Tombstone i Arizona. Der ble han kjent med den alkoholiserte, halvkriminelle, og pokerspillende tannlegen Doc Holliday, som ble Earps beste venn til han døde av tuberkulose i 1887.

Han er kjent fra oppgjøret ved O.K. Corral sammen med to av sine brødre, Virgil Earp og Morgan Earp, samt Doc Holliday.

Selv om Earp var med i mange skuddvekslinger unngikk han å bli truffet, og forble uskadet. Dette har ført til spekulasjoner om at han var ikledd en skuddsikker vest. Han drepte de fire mennene som mistenkes for å ha drept broren, Morgan.[trenger referanse]

Earp var sønn av Nicholas Porter («Nick») Earp (1813–1907), og Victoria Ann («Virginia») Cooksey (1821–1893) . Han hadde 5 brødre. Halvbroren Newton Nicholas Earp (1837–1928), fra farens første ekteskap, og James Cooksey Earp (1841–1926), Virgil Walter Earp (1843–1905), Morgan Seth Earp (1851–1882) og Warren Baxter Earp (1851–1900). Han hadde også tre søstre; Martha (1845–1856), Virginia Ann (1858–1861) og den yngste, Adelia (1861–1941), som var den eneste av søstrene som nådde voksen alder.

Faren deltok i den mexikanske krigen under kommando av Wyatt Barry Stapp. Hans kalte opp sin fjerde sønn etter sin kommandant.

Wyatt Earp var gift med 1) 1870 med Urilla Sutherland, som døde etter kort tid av ukjente årsaker, 2) Celia Ann («Mattie») Blaylock (d. 1888) og 3) Josephine Marcus (d. 1944).

Wyatt Earp døde av blærebetennelse og alderdom i sitt eget hjem i Los Angeles den 13. januar 1929. Han ligger begravd i byen Colma i California.

Livet hans er filmatisert i klassikere som My Darling Clementine (1946 – med Henry Fonda i hovedrollen), Gunfight at the O.K. Corral (1957 – med Burt Lancaster som Wyatt Earp og Kirk Douglas i rollen som Doc Holliday), Tombstone (1993 med Kurt Russel som Earp, samt Val Kilmer som Doc Holliday) og Wyatt Earp (1994 – med Kevin Costner i hovedrollen).
