Charles Patrick Wall (6 May 1933 – 6 August 1990) was an English Trotskyist political activist who was Labour Party Member of Parliament (MP) for Bradford North from 1987 to 1990. Wall was a long-standing member of the Militant group.

Born into a Liverpool working class family on 6 May 1933 best water bottle, he began political activity when he was picked up on a canvass by a local activist in 1950. Wall adopted a Trotskyist outlook and joined the Deane-Grant group, the remnant of the Revolutionary Socialist League, which later became the Militant group. Wall became Garston Constituency Labour Party Secretary in 1952.

Wall played a role in moving the Liverpool Labour Party to the left in the late 1950s as a member of the (then) joint Liverpool Trades Council and Labour Party Executive. He was also one of the youngest Liverpool councillors in the 1950s.

Wall was associated with a series of journals aimed at leading and widening the influence of Trotskyism, and popularising it without compromising or diluting it. After National Service in the Army he returned to Liverpool and helped to produce the youth journal Rally

, organ of the Walton Labour Youth League. Terry Harrison has described how when he joined the Labour Party Young Socialists in 1958, it was Wall and Rally that „invited me to make a real commitment to the ideas of Marxism, and made me realise what this meant“. Wall was then on the editorial board of Socialist Fight (1958-1963), and played a leading role in launching and editing the newspaper Militant.

Wall’s job as a mail-order company buyer eventually took him away from Liverpool to Market Harborough, and then to Bingley in Bradford. It also took him abroad, and he established political contacts on his foreign travels in Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, South Korea and the United States. His assistance to Trotskyists in Sri Lanka in 1979 was still remembered in tributes sent in memoriam.

Wall was a delegate from Shipley constituency to the Labour Party’s annual conference in 1972. With Ray Apps, a fellow member of the Militant tendency, he proposed a composite motion calling for „an enabling Bill to secure the public ownership of major monopolies,“ which was passed by 3,501,000 votes to 2,497,000.

Wall stood for the Labour Party National Executive seven years in a row, from 1977 to 1983, achieving 103,000 votes in 1982, his highest vote and also the highest vote for someone who was neither an MP nor a former MP.

Wall became President of Bradford Trades Council in 1973, and in 1981 he won a reselection battle against the sitting MP for Bradford North, Ben Ford, by 35 votes to 28. Ford alleged irregularities in the selection procedure and it was re-run, but Wall won again, this time by 49 votes to 12, and replaced Ford as the Labour candidate.

During the general election in 1983 Wall faced press criticism for his Trotskyist views, particularly in The Sunday Times, which portrayed Wall as wanting „civil war“ and „bloodshed“, even though, as a Militant editorial statement pointed out,“Pat explained that the Militant was in favour of a peaceful transformation of society. No supporter of Militant would ever advocate or encourage ‚bloodshed‘ or ‚civil war‘. . newbalance-outlet.com.. Pat was explaining that if there was any threat to a peaceful transformation of society, that threat would come from the capitalist class itself.“ He was disowned by the Labour Party leader, Michael Foot.

Wall won 14,492 votes (30.3 per cent), coming in second place jogging belt with water bottle, less than 2,000 votes behind the winning Conservative candidate Geoffrey Lawler, and ahead of the former Labour agent, Peter Birkby, standing for the SDP, and Ben Ford, standing as „Independent Labour“.

Wall stood again in the same constituency in 1987 and was featured in the Conservative election broadcast of 27 May 1987, which attacked his candidacy because he was a Marxist. He was quoted as saying: „A Marxist Labour government would mean the abolition of the monarchy, the House of Lords, the sacking of the generals, the admirals, the air marshals, the senior civil servants, the police chiefs and in particular the judges.“ The Sun also featured a demand that Wall be defeated on the day of the election. Wall held public meetings and 17 workplace meetings in the constituency and won the seat, recording a 9.9 per cent swing from the SDP.

Wall died in the intensive care unit at Bradford Royal Infirmary on Monday 6 August 1990. More than 700 people attended a memorial meeting held after his funeral, the speakers including Arthur Scargill, Max Madden MP, Dennis Skinner MP, Dave Nellist MP, Bob Cryer MP and Terry Fields MP.

. In 1912 werd de kapel ingewijd. Sindsdien heette het klooster „Mariaoord“ en de villa „Klein Mariaoord“.

In de jaren ’20 van de 20e eeuw was het een van de grootste kostscholen van Nederland. In 1929 werd de kostschool, mede door reorganisatie, gesloten. Het klooster bleef intact en de kapel werd verfraaid met glas-in-loodramen van Lou Asperslagh natural meat tenderizer for beef.

In 1938 werd Mariaoord de naam van de villa en ging het kloostergebouw Roucouleur heten. Dit kwam in gebruik bij de Katholieke Actie. In 1941 vertrokken de Ursulinen en kwamen verdreven studenten van het grootseminarie uit Haaren in het gebouw. Deze werden opnieuw door de Duitsers verdreven. Het gebouw werd een verblijfplaats voor Duitse soldaten vinegar as a meat tenderizer.

In 1945 kwamen de Zusters van het Allerheiligste Hart van Jezus in het gebouw welke in 1953 werden opgevolgd door de Broeders van Onze-Lieve-Vrouw van Lourdes. Het grote gebouw werd een juvenaat, waar in de hoogtijdagen 100 jongens verbleven. In 1969 sloot dit wegens gebrek aan roepingen. Er kwam een verplegingsopleiding „Vlaschmeer“ en in 1999 werd het een middelbare school.

Het is een rijksmonument.

Julio Licinio is currently Senior Vice President for Academic and Health Affairs, as well as Executive Dean, Dean of the College of Medicine, and Professor in Departments of Psychiatry fabric battery, Pharmacology, and Medicine at State University of New York Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, New York. He was formerly deputy director (Translation Strategy and Process) at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute, where he was head of the Mind & Brain Theme. He was simultaneously Matthew Flinders Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry at Flinders University in Adelaide, clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine in Albuquerque, adjunct professor of psychiatry at the UT (University of Texas) Health Science Center at Houston, and visiting professor of psychiatry, University of Minho in Braga. He is the former director of the John Curtin School of Medical Research, Australian National University (from 2009 to 2013), where he founded the John Curtin Medical Research Foundation. Licinio is the founding and current chief editor of three journals from Springer Nature, namely Molecular Psychiatry, Translational Psychiatry waterproof plastic bags, and The Pharmacogenomics Journal.

His area of scientific expertise is pharmacogenomics, as well as the biology of depression, and he has edited books on both topics. He has also published considerable research on translational psychiatry, as well as on obesity and the possible link between obesity, depression, and antidepressants.

Licinio lived in the United States for 25 years (1984–2009), but originally received his MD from the Federal University of Bahia in 1982, and completed his residency in internal medicine at the University of São Paulo from 1982 to 1984. He then moved to the United States and completed training in endocrinology at The University of Chicago, and psychiatry at Albert Einstein in the Bronx as well as at Weill Cornell Medical College. Licinio is registered as a specialist in psychiatry by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency. He is board certified in psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and he is a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists, the American Psychiatric Association, and the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology.

Licinio was previously an assistant professor of psychiatry at Yale University, then he was a Unit Chief within the Clinical Neurodocrinology Branch of the National Institute of Mental Health NIH Intramural Research Program (1993–1999), and later was professor of psychiatry and medicine/endocrinology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA from 1999 until 2006, where he had multiple roles, such as Founding Director of three NIH funded programs: the Interdepartmental Center on Clinical Pharmacology, the Graduate Training in Translational and Clinical Investigation and the Mentored Clinical Pharmacology Scholars Program; he also co-directed (with Ma-Li Wong) the UCLA Center for Pharmacogenomics, was Associate Program Director of the UCLA General Clinical Research Center, and Vice-Chair of Psychiatry & Biobehavioral Sciences. In 2006 he was appointed the Miller Professor of Psychiatry, Chairman of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences and subsequently Associate Dean for project development, responsible for starting the Clinical and Translational Science Institute at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, where he worked until 2009, when he moved to Australia as Director of the John Curtin School of Medical Research.

During the period 1993–2001, Licinio was a Temporary Advisor to the World Health Organization (WHO), having co-chaired ten WHO scientific meetings in seven countries, and co-edited the resulting ten books containing the proceedings of those meetings, mostly focused on the role of dysthymia in neurological disorders.

In 2005–2010, Licinio was a member of the United States Secretary of Health and Human Services Advisory Committee of Genetics Health and Society (SACGHS). The key issue addressed during his term was the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), which was strongly supported by the SACGHS. GINA was enacted on 21 May 2008 (Pub.L. 110–233, 122 Stat. 881) as an Act of Congress in the United States, designed to prohibit the use of genetic information in health insurance and employment. The Act prohibits group health plans and health insurers from denying coverage to a healthy individual or charging that person higher premiums based solely on a genetic predisposition to developing a disease in the future. The legislation also bars employers from using individuals‘ genetic information when making hiring, firing, job placement, or promotion decisions. Senator Ted Kennedy called it the „first major new civil rights bill of the new century.“ The Act contains amendments to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 and the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.

Licinio’s work has broad international recognition. He has advised on more than 90 review panels and committees, had over 200 abstracts at meeting presentations, and organised more than 60 symposia, conferences and workshops. He is the head of the Australian node of the German-Australian Institute for Translational Medicine (GAITM), directed by Stefan R. Bornstein. In 2013 he gave the opening Presidential Lecture at the European Congress of Psychiatry, Nice, France, the Eliahu Youdim Memorial Lecture at National Institute for Psychobiology in Jerusalem, Israel, the Kester Brown (opening) Lecture at the Australian Society of Anaesthesiology Annual Meeting in Canberra, the Roche Oration, Australasian Society of Psychiatric Research in Melbourne, the Opening Plenary Lecture at the Bio21 Cluster and Museum Victoria Conference: Biological Markers for Mental Health. He delivered the opening keynote lecture of the German 2014 Conference “Biomarkers & Biologically guided options of Child Psychiatric Disorders” in Frankfurt, and was appointed Visiting Professor of Psychiatry at Paris Descartes University (Université Paris 5 René Descartes, also known as Paris V) (2012-2014) and University of Minho, Braga, Portugal, competitively funded by the governments of France and Portugal. He was invited to give a Distinguished Psychiatrist lecture at the meeting of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) of which he is a member (past co-chair) of the Scientific Program Committee. In the last 5 years he published collaboratively with 190 colleagues from 54 institutions, located in 19 countries, including Nobel Laureates Andrew Schally and Rita Levi-Montalcini. He is a current reviewer for the large translational centre programs funded by the governments of the UK (Biomedical Research Centres and Units, NIHR), Canada (Support for People and Patient-Oriented Research and Trials – SUPPORT – Units, Canadian Institutes of Health Research), and Switzerland (National Centers for Competence in Research, Swiss National Science Foundation).

According to Google Scholar, Licinio has an h-index of 65, with over 21,000 citations. He has published over 240 papers indexed in Pubmed, as well as 12 books.

Licinio is known for his research into leptin and its role in conveying a feeling of satiety. For example, in 2002, he identified three people from Turkey who suffered from a genetic disorder called leptin deficiency – the only three adults known at that time to have this disorder – all of whom were severely overweight as a result metal sports water bottles. He then administered daily leptin injections to each of them, and found that after ten months, the patients had lost half of his or her original body weight. He discovered that despite being produced by a dispersed mass of fat cells, leptin is secreted in a highly organised manner with distinct pulsatility and circadian rhythm and that it appears to regulate the minute-to-minute rhythms of several endocrine axes, such as the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis, the hypothalamic–pituitary–thyroid axis, and the hypothalamic–pituitary–gonadal axis. Licinio and his colleagues were the first to suggest that leptin may have antidepressant effects, a concept that was subsequently extended by other groups. He also contributed to pioneer the concept that leptin has pro-cognitive effects in humans.

With his group, Licinio conducted an extensive body of work on the pharmacogenomics of depression that started in 2000 as part of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences NIH Pharmacogenomics Research Network (PGRN). In that project, he and his team studied a Mexican-American population with major depressive disorder in the city of Los Angeles, in the context of an extensive process of community engagement, which received Certificates of Commendation both from the California State Legislature and the United States Congress. He contributed the Mexican-American samples to the International HapMap Project. His pharmacogenetics research has resulted in several publications on predictors of antidepressant treatment response in this population.

Wong and Licinio contributed some of the earliest work on the role of cytokines and immune mediators in the brain, with implications for the underlying biology of major depressive disorder, and published scientific articles on the localisation of gene expression for interleukin 1 receptor antagonist, interleukin 1 receptor, type I (IL1R1), also known as CD121a (C lustre of D ifferentiation 121a), and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in mammalian brain. They also showed that interleukin 1 receptor antagonist is an endogenous neuroprotective agent. They have shown that the central and peripheral cytokine compartments are integrated but differentially regulated. In collaboration with colleagues at Columbia University Licinio and his team showed that inflammation-mediated up-regulation of secretory sphingomyelin phosphodiesterase in vivo represents a possible link between inflammatory cytokines and atherogenesis. Licinio’s line of research examining the effects of peripheral inflammation in brain, behaviour and metabolism is ongoing in their lab.

Licinio conceptualised, obtained funding for, and directed three graduate training programs with master’s degrees in translational investigation, for physician-scientists, at UCLA (supported by an NIH K30 award), University of Miami (supported by an NIH K30 award), and Australian National University. He also created and obtained NIH T32, NIH K12, and PhRMA Foundation (2004 Center of Excellence in Clinical Pharmacology) funding for the UCLA Interdepartmental Clinical Pharmacology Training Program, of which he was founding director (1999–2006). Licinio was the recipient of an NIH K24 award to mentor early career physician-scientists (2002–2007).

Licinio is often asked to comment on items related to his field and more broadly to medical research, science, and academic career development in general. He wrote four book reviews for Science, including a commentary on the current diagnostic system in psychiatry, the American Psychiatry Association (APA)’s „Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders“, Fifth Edition (DSM-5) and the controversial exhibit on Sigmund Freud at the US Library of Congress. Licinio writes a popular blog on science-related matters for the general public.

Licinio’s wife, Ma-Li Wong is also an expert on depression, pharmacogenomics and psychoneuroimmunology; they have worked together for over 20 years, and have co-authored over 150 papers, and co-edited two multi-authored books on pharmacogenomics and the biology of depression. Wong and Licinio have two adult children.

La Fender Stratocaster, informalmente anche Strat o, in Italia, Strato, è una chitarra elettrica solid-body (priva di cassa armonica) ideata da Leo Fender negli anni cinquanta e tuttora prodotta dalla Fender Musical Instruments Corporation. Assieme alla Gibson Les Paul è considerata la chitarra elettrica per antonomasia, per la sua popolarità e la sua diffusione, come per l’influenza esercitata sul panorama musicale e sull’immaginario collettivo.

Ideata e realizzata da Leo Fender nel 1954, con la collaborazione di Freddie Tavares, Rex Gallion e Bill Carson, la Fender Stratocaster è tuttora commercializzata senza differenze sostanziali rispetto al modello originale.

Nelle intenzioni di Fender, alla base della creazione di una nuova linea di chitarre che affiancasse il successo del modello Telecaster, c’era l’aspirazione a realizzare una chitarra che introducesse innovazioni sia di carattere tecnico (fra le quali un maggior numero di pick-up e l’introduzione della leva del vibrato), sia di carattere progettuale (l’abbandono della tradizionale forma della chitarra verso soluzioni più ergonomiche).

Il risultato è un progetto rivoluzionario: grazie alla forma innovativa, alla leggerezza dello strumento e alla maggiore facilità ad accedere alle note più acute della tastiera dovuta alla particolare forma scavata della spalla, la Stratocaster è considerata la più evoluta fra le chitarre elettriche dell’epoca.

Il montaggio di una leva vibrato di nuova concezione integrata nel corpo della chitarra ha permesso di sfruttare originali effetti sonori, mantenendo un notevole sustain. Inoltre insulated metal water bottle, la nuova concezione del ponte con sellette regolabili per lunghezza ed altezza delle corde permette una regolazione accurata dello strumento.

Una ricerca attenta fu eseguita nella disposizione dei pick-up, piazzando i due superiori perpendicolarmente alle corde, mentre quello al ponte presenta un’angolazione di circa 20 gradi in grado di enfatizzare i toni alti. I primi pickup ad essere stati utilizzati furono in Alnico 3, ma già alla fine del 1956 vennero sostituiti da quelli in Alnico 5.

Le modifiche immediatamente successive furono suggerite dai musicisti dell’epoca, che, spostando il selettore in posizione intermedia si accorsero che ne nasceva un suono nasale particolarmente interessante (tipico di due pick-up in parallelo). In seguito alle numerose segnalazioni la Fender nel 1977 sostituì il selettore a tre posizioni con uno a cinque posizioni che permette, in maniera semplice, di utilizzare anche 2 pick-up contemporaneamente. Questa è, in pratica, l’unica modifica tecnica considerevole al modello originale.

La prima Stratocaster su base commerciale è stata prodotta il 15 maggio 1954. Tra le Fender Stratocaster del 1954 è importante ricordare la „Hard-Tail“ ovvero il primo prototipo della Stratocaster a ponte fisso, senza tremolo, progettato in circa 20 esemplari che divenne poi di serie in produzione limitata da fine marzo 1955.

Il successo della Stratocaster andò sempre crescendo, almeno fino alla fine degli anni ’60, quando l’impatto della CBS, che acquistò la Fender il 5 gennaio del 1965, divenne evidente. Furono molte le modifiche che gradualmente vennero apportate dalla multinazionale sulla chitarra per velocizzarne la produttività a scapito spesso della qualità: il palettone, il corpo meno sagomato o il Tilt-neck con giunzione del manico a 3 viti. Ma di sicuro quelle che contribuirono in modo maggiormente al „declino“ della Stratocaster furono l’utilizzo di un nuovo ponte scadente in metallo pressofuso e le nuove vernici in poliestere.

A tutt’oggi la Fender Stratocaster rappresenta grazie alle sue peculiarità un punto di riferimento nel sound delle chitarre elettriche grazie alle scelte di Leo Fender tutte orientate a favorire un suono più squillante, come i pick-up a bobina singola e l’utilizzo di legni che enfatizzano le sonorità acute, contrariamente ai suoni più bassi e profondi tipici delle chitarre Gibson. Questo orientamento verso sonorità più brillanti nacque comunque anni prima, quando Leo Fender nel 1948 creò la prima chitarra elettrica „solid body“ di produzione industriale (alcuni esperimenti erano stati condotti da altri liutai, ma mai messi in vendita), ovvero la Fender Broadcaster, successivamente evolutasi nei modelli Esquire, a singolo pick-up e Telecaster a due pick-up.

Nel 2006, da una collaborazione tra Fender e la nota casa giapponese Roland, è infine nata la Stratocaster VG che unisce alla classica tecnica costruttiva dei modelli USA-made, la versatilità del sistema di sintesi Roland (suoni campionati di vari modelli Fender, accordature non tradizionali, effetto 12 corde) pilotata da un pick-up esafonico connesso ad una complessa parte elettronica alimentata da una batteria 9v. Esteticamente la si riconosce per la presenza di una quarta manopola, un led blu indicante l’accensione dello strumento ed il pick-up esafonico a ridosso del ponte.

Negli anni cinquanta la Stratocaster era considerata una chitarra giovanile, rispetto agli altri strumenti musicali dell’epoca. La forma rivoluzionaria e le tonalità brillanti che la contraddistinguevano, la facevano considerare uno strumento interessante ma poco versatile, relegato a specifici generi musicali. Sono stati molti i chitarristi ad aver imbracciato la nuova chitarra: da Pee Wee Crayton (a cui probabilmente si deve la prima incisione della Stratocaster su vinile), a Otis Rush e Buddy Guy, da Gene Vincent (l’autore di „Be-Bop-A-Lula„) a Mary Kaye, soprannominata la prima donna del rock’n’roll. Ma sicuramente il chitarrista che diede il contributo più importante alla diffusione di questa chitarra fu Buddy Guy, che apparve per la prima volta in televisione nel 1957, all’Ed Sullivan Show.

Nei primi anni sessanta il noto chitarrista statunitense Dick Dale iniziò a suonare musica „surf“ con la Stratocaster, evidenziando le peculiarità dello strumento sui suoni acuti.

Hank Marvin, leader e chitarra solista del gruppo rock The Shadows, il gruppo britannico più influente prima dell’avvento dei Beatles, è stato il proprietario della prima Fender Stratocaster venduta in Inghilterra: con il suo caratteristico stile, dal sound personalissimo, tagliente e morbido allo stesso tempo, contribuì alla diffusione e all’affermazione di questo strumento.

Dal 1965 George Harrison e John Lennon la utilizzarono per molti pezzi fra cui Nowhere Man. Successivamente la Stratocaster ottenne grande notorietà grazie al chitarrista Jimi Hendrix, il cui stile ampliò enormemente le potenzialità espressive dello strumento.

Altri musicisti contribuirono alla popolarità della Stratocaster, fra i quali si possono citare: Richie Sambora, Stef Burns, Dave Murray, Paul Kossoff, Janick Gers, Eric Clapton, Yngwie Malmsteen, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Steve Hackett, Ritchie Blackmore, Mark Knopfler, Frank Zappa, David Gilmour, Nile Rodgers, Mike Oldfield, Rory Gallagher, Kurt Cobain, Jeff Beck, Jeff Healey, John Frusciante, Dodi Battaglia, Max Cottafavi, The Edge, Eric Johnson, Billie Joe Armstrong e Buddy Guy.

Negli anni settanta il suo suono brillante ottenne importanza nella produzione di musica funk e discomusic. Negli anni ottanta fu ampiamente utilizzata nella musica rock e pop per il contrasto fra la sua sonorità ed i suoni elettronici delle tastiere.

Negli anni novanta, la ricerca di sonorità vintage, rese la Stratocaster uno strumento comunque molto popolare nel rock ed in particolare nel Grunge.

La lista dei modelli in produzione è cresciuta molto negli anni: nei cataloghi del 1990 apparivano 31 diverse Stratocaster, 44 nel 1992.

Fino a pochi anni fa l’American Standard era il modello più diffuso, con l’ampliamento del listino e la concorrenza interna derivante dal sempre più importante stabilimento messicano di Ensenada, che produce strumenti di qualità a minor prezzo rispetto alla produzione americana, ha permesso una distribuzione delle vendite più omogenea, anche se molti musicisti preferiscono usare modelli „vintage“, ovvero strumenti prodotti negli anni cinquanta e sessanta nel periodo d’oro dell’azienda chiamato pre-CBS spesso dal grande valore economico, oppure rivolgersi al „Custom Shop“ Fender che realizza strumenti artigianalmente, formato da un gruppo selezionato di liutai e da un laboratorio separato dalla normale produzione. Il Fender Custom Shop prevede una serie di modelli a listino, ma permette la realizzazione di strumenti su specifiche fornite dal cliente, potendo eventualmente scegliere quale specifico liutaio incaricare, in questo caso si parla di Custom Shop Masterbuilt.

Tra le altre serie di Stratocaster molto diffuse ricordiamo le varianti „economiche“ come le americane Highway One, le Standard o le Classic messicane, ovvero le versioni a basso costo rispettivamente delle standard e delle repliche Vintage americane, oppure i modelli „modernizzati“ come le Deluxe, con pick-up Humbucker al ponte oppure con pick-up Samarium Cobalt Noiseless a cancellazione del rumore. Idea nata negli anni ottanta (le cosiddette „Superstrat“) dalla necessità di ampliare la versatilità sonora dello storico modello di casa Fender. A questo proposito si citano due chitarristi degli Iron Maiden all natural meat tenderizer, Janick Gers e Dave Murray, i quali usano Stratocaster dotate di ben tre Humbucker (tre minihumbucker Hot Rails Seymour Duncan) insieme a un ponte di tipo Floyd Rose.

Altri modelli sempre più diffusi sono le Artist Series, modelli sviluppati in collaborazione con artisti come Eric Clapton (suo nel 1988 il primo modello signature prodotto dalla Fender), Jeff Beck, John Mayer, Yngwie Malmsteen, Eric Johnson, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Mark Knopfler

, Mike Oldfield e molti altri.

Elemento che può provocare confusione è il fatto che nei propri cataloghi la Fender indica come Vintage (o Reissue) qualunque chitarra di produzione contemporanea che, in una certa misura, ricalchi le caratteristiche costruttive dei modelli del 1957 e del 1962, e come Custom qualunque chitarra (anche prodotta industrialmente), che presenti qualche modifica rispetto al modello principale.

Il modello Fender Tom DeLonge Stratocaster era una chitarra elettrica prodotta dalla collaborazione di Tom DeLonge e della Fender dal 1999 al 2002. Aveva il corpo in ontano, il manico, pezzo unico in acero con tastiera 21 tasti in palissandro sports water bottles cheap, era di media sezione non spianata ma quasi tonda, abbastanza intonato e rifinito. La novità del modello, pressoché assoluta della casa americana, è l’utilizzo di un solo humbucker al ponte, un Seymour Duncan SH-8 con un solo potenziometro per il volume. La paletta era stile anni ’70 con la scritta Fender dorata con contorno nero e la scritta stratocaster in grassetto nera, mentre verso la punta c’era la scritta deluxe series. Le meccaniche erano prive di regolazione di tiro, classico colore argento. Il ponte era cromato, senza tremolo. La placca era argentata con la scritta Tom DeLonge. La versione Squier aveva con il corpo in ontano, il manico in acero e tastiera con 21 tasti in palissandro. Anziché montare il Seymour Duncan Sh-8, montava il Duncan Designed detonator. L’unica differenza nei 2 pick-up erano i magneti. Andò fuori produzione nel 2003. Era disponibile nei colori nera, surf green e bianca.

La chitarra è composta da tipi di materiale diversi a seconda della parte: il corpo è di frassino, il manico è di acero, mentre la tastiera di palissandro. In alcune versioni anche la tastiera è in acero. Il manico è a forma di C, i tasti sono Medium Jumbo,mentre la tastiera ha un Radius di 9.5″(24,1 cm). Il manico ha una finitura satinata che ne mantiene la scorrevolezza, il Truss-Rod ha un sistema Bi-Flex. La chitarra monta dei Pick-up Alnico V e i controlli sono: Master Volume, Tone 1 (Neck Pick-up), Tone 2 (Middle and Bridge Pick-up). L’hardware è Cromato, il ponte è un tremolo a due Pivot.

Periapsisargumentet er det ene af de i alt seks baneparametre der bruges til entydigt at beskrive en elliptisk omløbsbane, f.eks. banen for et rumfartøj eller Månen i kredsløb om Jorden. Periapsisvinklen ω („lille omega“) for en ellipseformet omløbsbane er vinklen mellem knudelinjen og apsidelinjen, målt fra den opstigende knude til periapsis.

På illustrationen til højre kredser et lille himmellegeme (eller et rumfartøj) A omkring det større legeme B: Det lille legemes baneplan D hælder i forhold til et referenceplan C, som enten kan være ekliptikas plan, eller det større legemes ækvatorplan, så langs knudelinjen (den grønne streg) skærer referenceplanet og baneplanet hinanden. Den røde streg er apsidelinjen, dvs. den linje der går gennem periapsis og apoapsis; de to punkter langs omløbsbanen hvor de to legemer er hhv. tættest på og fjernest fra hinanden.

For sædvanlige omløbsbaner beregnes periapsisargumentet ω, som:







{\displaystyle \mathbf {e} _{\mathbf {z} }=0}

(altså z-komponenten af excentricitetsvektoren er lig nul), så har omløbsbanen ikke noget periapsisargument. Der vil nemlig være tale om en ækvatorial omløbsbane, og denne har ikke nogen opstigende knude (da den hele tiden er parallel med ækvatorplanen) – den har dog (selvfølgelig) et periapsis.

I den slags situationer anvender man ofte en alternativ definition udelukkende baseret på excentricitetsvektoren (og altså af periapsis):

Hvis der er tale om en cirkulær omløbsbane, hvor det omkredsende legeme hele tiden er i samme afstand fra det omkredsede legeme (ellipsen har excentriciteten 0 og er dermed en cirkel), så er der heller ikke noget egentligt periapsisargument, da der ikke er noget periapsis. Dog vil man – om periapsisargumentet skal fastsættes til noget – ofte placere periapsis i den opstigende knude, hvorved „periapsisargumentet“ bliver

La bataille de la rivière Kalka (russe : Битва на реке Калке, ukrainien : Битва на ріці Калка) se déroule sur les rives de la Kalka, dans l’actuelle Ukraine, le ou 1222. Elle oppose une avant-garde de la cavalerie de l’empire mongol, commandée par Djebé et Subötaï, à une coalition rassemblant les princes Rus‘ de Galitch, de Kiev, de Tchernikov et de Smolensk appelés au secours par le khan des Coumans. Elle s’achève par une nette victoire des Mongols et préfigure le début de l’invasion de la Russie par les Mongols de Gengis Khan et, par suite, le début du joug mongol sur la Russie, qui s’étale sur près de trois siècles.

Djebé et Subötai n’exploitent pas leurs victoires, se contentant de mettre à sac les villes prises. Leur objectif et de recueillir des renseignements sur les pays situés à l’ouest pour une campagne future. L’armée qui a écrasé les forces Rus‘ coalisées est en effet « seulement » une avant-garde. Après la bataille de la Kalka, ils prennent la direction de l’est, faisant le tour de la Caspienne par le Nord pour rejoindre Gengis Khan et retourner en Mongolie. Mais ils ont reconnu le terrain et reviendront une douzaine d’années plus tard, en conquérants cette fois.

Dans les années 1210, l’empire Mongol a envahi une partie de l’Asie, mais entretient de bonnes relations avec le sultanat du Khwarezm avec qui il a des échanges commerciaux. En 1218, à la suite du pillage et du massacre d’une caravane venue de Mongolie par des troupes khwarezmiennes, Gengis Khan demande réparation à Ala ad-Din Muhammad, sultan de Khwarezm, qui refuse. Gengis Khan décide alors la guerre et, dès 1219, chevauche vers le Khwarezm. Boukhara est prise en février 1220, Samarkand en mars et la capitale Ourguentchen avril 1221. Le Khwarezm est envahi, les villes tombent les unes après les autres et la plupart des habitants massacrés. Pendant ce temps, Gengis Khan a envoyé un détachement de cavalerie, commandé par Djebé et Subötaï, à la poursuite d’Ala ad-Din Muhammad qui s’est enfui. Après une incessante chasse, ponctuée elle aussi de prises de villes et de massacres, ce dernier meurt sur la mer Caspienne. Djebé et Subötaï décident de poursuivre leur raid.

En 1221 et 1222, Djebé et Subötai envahissent et pillent la Géorgie, passent le Caucase par Derbent et débouchent dans les steppes après avoir saccagé l’Azerbaïdjan, réduit les Alains et les Tcherkesses.

Côté Rus‘ glass water bottles for fridge, la puissante Rus‘ de Kiev n’est plus qu’un souvenir depuis un siècle. Elle est maintenant morcelée en près de cent cinquante principautés.

La cavalerie mongole arrive sur le territoire des Coumans, au Nord de la mer Noire. Contrairement à Ala ad-Din Muhammad (qui s’était sérieusement brouillé avec ses voisins musulmans et n’avait pu leur demander de l’aide) un khan des Coumans, Koutan (en), appelle les princes Rus‘ à son secours : son beau-père Mstislav le Téméraire, prince de Galitch, qui convainc lui-même les princes de Kiev, de Smolensk et de Tchernigov de se joindre à eux. Ils décident d’attaquer les Mongols sans attendre.

Après la bataille, les Mongols retournent auprès de Gengis Khan, non sans avoir pillé des comptoirs commerciaux génois de Crimée tout proches et le territoire des Bulgares de la Kama.

Les Mongols et les Rus‘ ne tirent pas le même bilan de cette bataille. Les princes Rus‘ ne semblent pas se rendre compte de la future menace qui plane sur eux, et restent divisés. Leurs adversaires ont disparu aussi vite qu’ils sont arrivés. Les Mongols, eux, ont pris acte de leurs possibilités en Occident. Lorsque les Mongols reviennent
