Ole Peter Riis Høegh (also Ole Petter Riis Høegh, often simply Peter Høegh; July 27, 1806 – March 1, 1852) was one of Norway’s first trained civilian architects and was Bergen’s first town surveyor.
Høegh was born in Grue, Norway. He designed several significant buildings in Bergen and Trondheim. Stylistically, Høegh’s architecture is characterized by Neoclassicism
,:31 but also contains early touches of Historicism. He died in Bergen.
Høegh received his first training in architecture under the architect Jørgen Gerhard Løser. After this, he studied at the Royal School of Drawing under Hans Linstow. In 1823, Høegh was hired by Linstow as a draftsman for the Royal Palace. In 1825 and 1826 he was a supervisor at Hadeland in charge of quarrying soapstone for the palace. As Linstow’s assistant, he was involved in the plans for Grue Church, and created drawings for details and the interior. He worked as an assistant to Linstow until 1828, when he replaced Christian Heinrich Grosch as town surveyor in Christiania (now Oslo). From 1829 to 1830, he worked as a foreman in the construction of Immanuel Church and the secondary school in Frederikshald (now Halden) based on designs by Grosch.
In 1830, Høegh moved to Trondheim, where he was responsible for a number of important construction projects over the next five years. Both the forced-labor prison (now the National Museum of Justice) and the Military Hospital were built based on Høegh’s plans. The former Bank of Norway main office was built from 1830 to 1832. In cooperation with Gustav Adolph Lammers, Høegh designed the Tronka asylum (built from 1836 to 1842). In 1834, he was involved in the construction of a new Gothic vault in the octagon of Nidaros Cathedral and he prepared a proposal for needed repairs. In 1835 he submitted the first proposal for replacing the cathedral dome.
By 1832, Høegh had been appointed town surveyor in Bergen, but he did not take office there until 1835 because of all of the commissions that he had in Trondheim. The biographer Arno Berg writes that „On the whole, I believe that during the years Høegh was working in Bergen he was engaged in scattered building activities, with some prominent architecture in the city and its vicinity in his hands.“:90 There is no doubt that all of the manor houses attributed to him truly are his work, such as the Urdi House, Christinegård Mansion, the Helland House, Wernersholm, and others. The buildings in Bergen attributed to him with greater certainty were designed between 1836 and 1845, and they show the influence of German Romantic Classicism. In 1836 and 1837, Høegh traveled for study in Copenhagen, Hamburg, Berlin, and Potsdam, and his later architecture shows the strong influence of leading German architects such as Karl Friedrich Schinkel.
Høegh received a number of important commissions in Bergen, but today most of these have either been demolished or heavily rebuilt. His two best-preserved structures are Bergen’s new secondary school (the Bergen Cathedral School), built in 1840, and the Bank of Norway branch office, built between 1840 and 1845.
Høegh eventually had trouble making a living as an architect. By 1848 he was ill, his wife had died, and he was forced to sell his house. In 1849 he was declared insane, and the following year he was placed under guardianship. He died two years later, at the age of 44.
Magic Numbers was a British television game show which aired for one series of seven episodes in July and August 2010.
The show was hosted by magician Stephen Mulhern, who was joined each week by a number of celebrity guests. In the first part of each episode, the celebrity guests answered questions or took part in challenges to generate a sequence of 6 numbers. Members of the public then called a Premium-rate telephone number if their home or mobile phone number contained two or more of these digits. Callers were entered into a prize draw, the winner of which would compete in the final round for a prize of up to £350,000. Throughout the show, Mulhern would also perform a number of magic tricks or illusions, assisted by some of that week’s celebrity guests. While the initial public phone-in was taking place, Mulhern would also perform a featured grand illusion, again assisted by one or more of that week’s celebrity guests.
The highest prize won by a contestant was £290,000, won by Pamela Mullins from Sheffield, Yorkshire.
The show was very similar to a previous ITV game show, Talking Telephone Numbers
, the key difference being that viewers of Magic Numbers could call in if two of the numbers matched their phone number, rather than five as on the previous show. This was a technique employed by ITV to generate more calls, and hence higher revenues from the show.
The show was created by CPL Productions and Paul Brassey and commissioned by John Kaye Cooper at ITV.
The Conservative Party of New York State is a political party in the United States active in the state of New York, holding „Line C“ on ballots directly below the Democratic and Republican parties. Although the Conservative Party existed in many other states throughout the 1960s, it now operates only in New York State.
In New York State’s elections, the Conservative Party was ranked fourth place in terms of membership in 2010, behind the Democrats, Republicans, and the Libertarian Party, and ahead of the Greens and Constitution Party. As of November 1, 2011, 147,993 voters, or 1.3% of New York State’s total enrollment, were registered with the party.
The Conservative Party of New York State was founded in 1962 by a group including J. Daniel Mahoney, Kieran O’Doherty, Charles E. Rice, and Charles Edison
, out of frustration with the perceived liberalism of the state’s Republican Party. A key consideration was New York’s fusion voting, unusual among US states, which allows individual candidates to receive votes from more than one party. The Liberal Party of New York, founded in 1944, had earlier benefitted from this system.
The Conservative Party founders wanted to balance the Liberal Party’s influence. One early supporter was National Review founder William F. Buckley, who was the party’s candidate for mayor of New York City in 1965. In 1970, his brother James Buckley was elected to the U.S. Senate as a Conservative Party candidate; in 1976, he ran for reelection as a candidate of the Republican and Conservative parties, losing to Daniel Patrick Moynihan. In 1978, registered Conservative William Carney, a member of the Suffolk County legislature, was elected to the United States House of Representatives in New York’s 1st congressional district, a long-time Democratic stronghold on Long Island, after winning the Republican primary and running on both party lines. He eventually served three terms before retiring. In the 2004 U.S. Senate election, the Conservative Party endorsed Marilyn O’Grady to oppose Republican candidate Howard Mills and incumbent Democratic Senator Charles Schumer.
The Conservative Party platform addresses a range of fiscal and social issues. In the fiscal realm, the Party supports reduced individual and corporate taxes, right to work laws, tort reform, repeal of inheritance (estate) taxes, and limits on the growth of state spending, and opposes minimum wage increases. Regarding law enforcement, the Party advocates repeal of the SAFE Act, reinstatement of the death penalty, no parole for convicted felons, and the use of „stop-and-frisk“ policing, and opposes the legalization of mind-altering drugs. On social issues, the Party opposes abortion except when the life of the mother is in danger, supports educational choice, opposes same-sex marriage, opposes the DREAM Act, and promotes adoption. The Party advocates government reform efforts such as term limits, initiative and referendum, recall, a ban on legislative member items, and voter identification requirements, and opposes taxpayer funding of campaigns.
Rather than nominating its own candidates, the Conservative Party usually endorses the same candidates as the Republican Party and campaigns against the Democratic candidates. It withholds this support from the Republicans if it deems them too liberal. For example, the Conservative Party withheld its support from Republican Rudy Giuliani’s fusion campaigns with endorsement from the Liberal Party for New York City mayor in 1989, 1993 and 1997. The decision not to endorse party-switching Syracuse state Senator Nancy Larraine Hoffmann cost the GOP that seat in the 2004 election. However, the Party has also endorsed Democratic candidates as well, such as controversial former Buffalo mayor and presidential candidate Jimmy Griffin, who was initially elected mayor solely on the Conservative ticket but had Republican support as well for his subsequent campaigns. It also cross-endorsed such Democrats as Asms. Michael Cusick, Michael P. Kearns, and Robin Schimminger, former Manhattan District Attorney Frank Hogan, and former Capital District Congressman Michael McNulty. No Republican has won statewide office in New York without Conservative Party support since 1974.
This list in incomplete.
Herbert London was the Conservative Party’s nominee for Governor of New York in 1990; that year, the party broke from the Republican Party, declining to cross-endorse Republican nominee Pierre Rinfret. London ran a strong campaign statewide and finished one percentage point behind Rinfret, while Democratic Governor Mario Cuomo easily won re-election.
The party lobbied against Jeanine Pirro’s candidacy for the 2006 Senate election against Hillary Clinton. Pirro was a liberal Republican and was supported by Governor George Pataki and other GOP leaders who saw her as the only candidate who could compete against Clinton. Under pressure from the Conservative Party and factions within the GOP, Pirro withdrew from the race in November 2005 to run for state attorney general (this time, with the endorsement of the Conservative Party). She was defeated in that race by Andrew Cuomo. Most Conservative Party state and county leaders supported John Spencer, former mayor of Yonkers, New York. While Spencer received the Republican nomination, he was defeated by Clinton in the general election.
In the race for Governor, Conservative Party Chairman Michael Long endorsed John Faso, the former Assembly Minority Leader and Republican State Comptroller nominee in 2002. Faso also received the endorsements of county branches of the Conservative Party. Bill Weld, John Faso’s primary contender, received lukewarm support from the Conservative Party due to his support of abortion and same-sex marriage; Weld considered running on the Libertarian Party ticket. Faso was the nominee of both the Republican and Conservative parties, but was defeated by Eliot Spitzer.
The Conservative Party nominated Republican candidates John McCain and Sarah Palin for president and vice president in the 2008 election. The graph shows how it did throughout the state.
The Conservative Party nominated Doug Hoffman for the special congressional election in the 23rd congressional district, an election won by the Democratic nominee, Bill Owens. The Conservative Party chose Hoffman, a fiscal and social conservative, in reaction to the Republican Party’s nomination of pro-choice, pro-same-sex-marriage, pro-union Assemblymember Dede Scozzafava, who Chairman Mike Long declared to be a „nice lady who is too liberal.“ On October 31, 2009, Dede Scozzafava suspended her campaign, leading prominent Republicans such as national chairman Michael Steele to endorse Hoffman. The final election results showed that Owens prevailed over Hoffman by a margin of 48.3% to 46%. According to one commentator, „tea party conservatives see the GOP loss as a victory for conservativism over mere political party loyalty. They’re describing the defeat as a warning shot fired in defense of principle.“ In addition, elected officials and observers opined that the congressional race had an impact on the New York State Senate’s December 2, 2009 vote against same-sex marriage legislation.
Stephen Christopher, the party’s nominee for Mayor of New York City, came in third in that race with 1.7% of the vote. The party’s nominees for Public Advocate and Comptroller also came in third with 3.5% and 2.3% of the vote respectively.
Party chairman Michael Long publicly endorsed Rick Lazio for the New York gubernatorial election, 2010, and directed his allies to do the same. However, several county chairmen refused, and coalesced behind vice chairman Ralph Lorigo to assure Lazio would have a Conservative Party primary opponent. Long sent a letter demanding Lorigo to either cease his gubernatorial campaign or resign his position within the party, accusing him of being a stalking horse for another candidate, Carl Paladino, whom Long refused to consider (an allegation that Lorigo publicly denied, though his campaign was run by family members of the Paladino campaign). Long did not state any consequences for refusing to do so.
Lazio defeated Lorigo in the primary election by a roughly 60-40 margin, though write-in candidates were significant in several upstate counties, many of which voted for Lorigo over Lazio. Paladino defeated Lazio in the Republican primary. Afterwards, Long barred Lorigo from party meetings. Lazio dropped out of the race on September 27, requiring a vacancy committee to convene and select a replacement; Lorigo claims that Suffolk County chairman Ed Walsh held a meeting among his party’s members that claimed a 90 percent support rate, at odds with Long’s claims. Long eventually endorsed Paladino, and the vacancy committee followed, placing Paladino on the line.
Paladino eventually drew 232,264 votes on the Conservative Party line, which allowed the Party to overtake the Independence Party of New York and retake Line C for the first time since the 1998 elections.
Following the passage of same-sex marriage legislation in 2011, the Conservative Party stated that it would withdraw support for any candidate who had voted for the bill. Four Republican state senators−Sens. James Alesi, Mark Grisanti, Roy McDonald, and Stephen Saland−voted in favor of same-sex marriage. Alesi did not run for re-election, while Grisanti, McDonald, and Saland faced challengers who received the Conservative Party’s endorsement. Grisanti was re-elected to the State Senate in 2012, while McDonald was defeated in a Republican primary and Saland was defeated in a general election in which a Conservative Party-endorsed challenger acted as a spoiler.
The party endorsed Rob Astorino very early in the gubernatorial election process. In the comptroller election, the party threatened to nominate its own candidate if the Republicans could not find a candidate from their party to run on the line.
Grisanti, the last remaining Republican to have voted for the Marriage Equality Act, was again denied a cross-endorsement and the party instead endorsed dummy candidate Timothy Gallagher for the position. Grisanti lost in the Republican primary but remained in the general election on the Independence line; Gallagher, despite not campaigning at all, won 8 percent of the vote. The vote split between Gallagher, Grisanti and Republican primary winner Kevin Stocker allowed Democrat Marc Panepinto to win election to the seat with only 34 percent of the vote.
Tielman Johannes de Villiers Roos (1879 – 28 March 1935) was a right wing South African politician and sometime Cabinet minister.
Roos made his name as the leader of a group of young members of the South African Party who were opposed to the creation of the Union of South Africa by Louis Botha. Roos and his followers fell in with Daniel François Malan and he was a founding member of the National Party. As head of the party in Transvaal Roos sought to build a following amongst the white workers in the area, supporting mine workers‘ strikes in 1918. Using his as his personal slogan „workers of the world unite and fight for a white South Africa“, he was a regular speaker at a series of events in 1922 when white miners went back on strike over wage cuts and an increase in the proportion of black workers allowed. Roos‘ connections to the working class voters was instrumental in securing the National Party’s coalition with the South African Labour Party that led to their victory in the 1924 election. Indeed attempts between the two parties to reach an agreement during the 1922 strike were even known as „Roos’s Parliament“ such was his influence at the time.
Roos would serve as Justice Minister from 1924 to 1929. In government he was a strong advocate of racial segregation but despite this he defended the rights of the Industrial and Commercial Workers‘ Union to organise amongst Black workers in Durban. He also continued his policy of reaching out to the workers, describing the Labour Party as ‚brothers‘ of the National Party and encouraged working class voters to join the party.
Roos spent three years as a judge in the Supreme Court of Appeal but resigned after criticizing Prime Minister of South Africa James Barry Munnik Hertzog due to a lack of plans to come off the gold standard. He then used this issue to relaunch his political career. Roos proposed an alliance with Jan Smuts to ensure he got his way, although the former PM was unwilling as Roos wanted the Premiership for himself. Ultimately however Roos personal popularity ensured that his demands were agreed to with Finance Minister N.C. Havenga taking the country off gold in a move that led to a widespread economic up-turn.
This success of sorts was to be Roos‘ final contribution to South African politics as, although it had initially been his campaign, support dwindled after the country came off gold

WDHN is the ABC-affiliated television station for Southeastern Alabama’s Wiregrass Region. Owned by the Nexstar Broadcasting Group and licensed to Dothan, it broadcasts a high definition digital signal on UHF channel 21 (or virtual channel 18.1 via PSIP) from a transmitter at its studios on AL 52 in Webb. The station can also be seen on Comcast, Bright House Networks, and Time Warner channel 8 with high definition available on Bright House Networks digital channel 241 and Comcast digital channel 431. Syndicated programming on WDHN includes Entertainment Tonight, Dr. Phil, The Doctors cheap Karen Millen Desses 2016, Hot Bench, The Insider, The 700 Club, and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.
WDHN-TV launched August 7, 1970 as the area’s second television station and aired an analog signal on UHF channel 18. It was owned by Dothan businessman Betts Slingluff, Jr. and a partnership of other local investors. Although conventional wisdom then suggested that it should have opted for an NBC affiliation, it has been an ABC affiliate for its entire existence. This seemed to be an unusual move for a two-station market, especially one (then as now) as small as Dothan. ABC was the smallest and weakest network, and would not be anywhere near par with CBS and NBC in terms of ratings until later in the decade. However, geography played a decisive part in channel 18 going with ABC. The Alabama side of the market received a fairly strong signal from WSFA-TV in Montgomery. Further , at the time the station signed on, no ABC affiliate provided even a grade B signal to the Wiregrass. The only nearby ABC programs were on WJHG-TV in Panama City, Florida on a part-time basis. Slinguff thus figured that WDHN wouldn’t face much local competition if it took an affiliation with ABC.
In 1979, reflecting an era when small, locally owned stations were losing profitability, Slingluff’s group sold WDHN to Hi Ho Television, which also owned WVGA in Valdosta, Georgia. In 1986, Hi Ho sold WDHN and WVGA to Morris Multimedia. It dropped the -TV suffix in 1998. In 2003, Nexstar purchased WDHN along with KARK-TV in Little Rock, Arkansas from Morris.
In 2009, WDHN turned off its analog transmitter and began broadcasting exclusively in digital.
For its first four decades on the air, the station operated from a tiny 500-foot tower behind its studios. Its analog signal only operated at 1.07 million watts, one of the weakest signals in the country for a full-powered network affiliate. As a result, WDHN’s coverage area was only half that of CBS affiliate WTVY, which operates from a tower more than four times as tall, at over 2,000 feet. Recently
, WDHN replaced its old tower with a new 600-foot tower, still fairly tiny by modern television standards. As a result, while channel 18’s digital signal operates at a full million watts (equivalent to five million watts in analog), its digital coverage area is not much larger than its analog coverage area. By comparison, WTVY’s digital signal covers parts of three states.
On January 27, 2016, it was announced that Nexstar would buy Media General for $4.6 billion. WDHN, along with recently acquired Fox affiliate WZDX in Huntsville, will become part of „Nexstar Media Group“ and join a cluster of stations Nexstar would own in Alabama including WIAT in Birmingham and WKRG-TV in Mobile, as well as WRBL in Columbus, Georgia, which covers much of east Alabama including Opelika and Auburn. All three of these stations are CBS affiliates.
WDHN broadcasts three newscasts weekdays at 5:00 PM, 6:00 PM and 10:00 PM. „Top of the Morning“ with Charlie Platt can be seen each morning at 5:30 AM.
Historically, WDHN has been well behind WTVY in the ratings. This is partly because WDHN has a coverage area only half the size of WTVY due to its short transmitter tower. It also had to deal with competition from WSFA, which was available on Wiregrass cable systems for decades. Unlike most ABC outlets and other big three network-affiliated stations, it does not offer local news on weekends nike soccer jerseys 2016 Shop. Despite broadcasting its signal digitally, as of December 2015 the network still does not broadcast its news in widescreen nor high definition.
Miguel Caldera (1548–1597) was an important figure in the pacification and colonization of Mexico’s northern frontier immediately following the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire.
Caldera was the illegitimate son of a Castilian soldier named Pedro Caldera and a Guachichil woman named Maria. He was born in 1548 in what later became the city of Zacatecas and was raised by Franciscan monks in the city’s monastery.
Caldera entered the Chichimeca War in 1571 or 1572 at the age of 24 or 25 as a common soldier with the help of his brother-in-law Hernàn Gonzales. He obtained the rank of captain before 1580 Ted Baker Dresses UK.
He was impressed by cruelty and futility of the Spanish Crown’s efforts to subdue the Chichimecas by brute force. He advocated the use of diplomacy and gift-giving instead. The success of his alternative policy led to his appointment as Chief Justice and District Mayor of the Valley of Tlaltenango and Jerez. In that role he was the principal implementor of the Spanish Crown’s pacification program in the region of Zacatecas, northern Jalisco and San Luis Potosí Cheap The Kooples Dresses.
Caldera was instrumental in the migration of 400 Tlaxcaltec families in 1591 to the newly pacified region to help Christianize the local indigenous populations and consolidate the peace. The consolidation of peace during his tenure facilitated settlement of the region and the eventual Spanish occupation of what would, two and a half centuries later, become the American Southwest.
In March 1592, Caldera sent a group of miners and soldiers from Mezquitic to the region of Cerro San Pedro to survey and register some newly discovered mines. Upon ascertaining the mines‘ potential the place was named Potosí after the famous mines in Peru. As settlement of the mines began, the lack of water near the mines became problematic. The permanent settlement, which was initially populated by Tlaxcaltec families, was named San Luis Potosí. Miguel Caldera is considered one of the founders of this city.
Caldera acquired considerable wealth during his lifetime including claims on a number of newly discovered mines in the region that he administered. He was never married, but fathered an illegitimate daughter named Isabel. She married a man named Juan de la Torre and was the mother of two sons: Marcos and Melchor
. Caldera also had a sister (possibly half-sister) named Maria Cid Caldera MAX & Co. on Sale, who was married to Hernán González, a close collaborator of Caldera in the administration of the town of Colotlán, one of the Tlaxcaltec frontier colonies he helped found. The son of this couple, Pedro Cid Caldera was the primary heir of Caldera upon his death in 1597.
Parthenia or the Maydenhead of the first musicke that ever was printed for the Virginalls was, as the title states, the first printed collection of music for keyboard in England. ‚Virginals‘ was a generic word at the time that covered all plucked keyboard instruments – the harpsichord, muselaar and virginals, but most of the pieces are also suited for the clavichord and chamber organ. Though the date is uncertain, it was probably published around 1612. The 21 pieces included are ascribed to William Byrd, John Bull, and Orlando Gibbons, in three sections.
The title Parthenia comes from the Greek parthenos meaning „maiden“ or „virgin.“ The music is written for the Virginals, the etymology of which is unknown, but may either refer to the young girls who are often shown playing it
, or from the Latin virga, which means „stick“ or „wand“, possibly referring to part of the mechanism that plucks a string in the harpsichord family of instruments. The „Maydenhead“ refers to the maiden voyage or, in this case, the first printing of Parthenia. The manuscript’s dedication by the publisher William Hole (first edition) opens with the phrase: The virgin PARTHENIA (whilst yet I may) I offer up to your virgin Highnesses.
The companion work Parthenia inviolata, or Mayden-Musicke for the Virginalls and Bass-Viol was published soon afterwards.
Although neither the first nor second editions bear a date, Parthenia was probably published around 1612, deduced by the dedication
This couple was betrothed in December 1612 and married in February 1613. Frederick and Elizabeth subsequently left England Cheongsam Dresses, and a further printing in 1613 promptly changed the dedication to read: Dedicated to all the Maisters and Louers of Musick. The last printing was made in 1659.
One interesting aspect is the use of „E“ and „F“ in both the text and the music of Parthenia. „E“ refers to Elizabeth Stuart, „F“ to Frederick V. The dedication has the phrase
For this was created as a wedding present to Elizabeth and Frederick. More exciting is the Orlando Gibbons movement The Queenes Command in which he begins the piece with the notes E and F and uses these notes to start future measures or to tie measures together.
Parthenia contains, as the 1613 edition states, music Composed By three famous Masters: William Byrd
, Dr: John Bull & Orlando Gibbons, Gentilmen of his Ma[jes]ties most Illustrious Chappell. The book is divided into three sections, each devoted to one of its composers. There are eight pieces by Byrd, seven by Bull and six by Gibbons. The pieces chosen are indeed representative of the finest compositions of these composers: pavans, galliards, fantazias and variations. There are no liturgical pieces. The music in Parthenia is written on staves of six lines, but is peculiarly difficult to sightread as the notes are not positioned vertically in relation to their values, which has led some commentators to deduce that the work was published as a record rather than for practical performance.
