Clinton-Glen Gardner School District

The Clinton-Glen Gardner School District is a community public school district that serves students in pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade from the Town of Clinton and the Borough of Glen Gardner, in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, United States. Before Glen Gardner, a non-operating district, was consolidated into the district, students from the borough had attended the district’s school as part of a sending/receiving relationship. Other students attend the school on a tuition basis. Formerly known as the Town of Clinton School District, the district’s board of education voted in November 2009 to revise the name to Clinton-Glen Gardner School District to reflect the merger.

As of the 2011-12 school year, the district’s one school had an enrollment of 496 students and 41.9 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of 11.84:1.

The district is classified by the New Jersey Department of Education as being in District Factor Group „I“, the second-highest of eight groupings. District Factor Groups organize districts statewide to allow comparison by common socioeconomic characteristics of the local districts. From lowest socioeconomic status to highest, the categories are A, B, CD, DE, FG, GH, I and J.

Public school students in ninth through twelfth grades attend either North Hunterdon High School in Annandale or Voorhees High School in Glen Gardner as part of the North Hunterdon-Voorhees Regional High School District. North Hunterdon High School serves students from Clinton Town, along with those from Clinton Township, Bethlehem Township, Franklin Township, Union Township, and Lebanon Borough, while students from Glen Gardner attend Voorhees High School, which also serves students from Califon, Hampton, High Bridge, Lebanon Township and Tewksbury Township.

Clinton Public School was named as a „Star School“ by the New Jersey Department of Education, the highest honor that a New Jersey school can achieve, in the 1994-95 school year.

Clinton Public School had an enrollment of 496 students as of the 2011-12 school year.

Ivan Fichev (Bulgarian: Иван Фичев) (born on 15 April 1860 in Tarnovo, died on 13 November 1931 in Sofia) was a Bulgarian general, Minister of Defense, military historian and academician.

Ivan Fichev was born in 1860 in Tarnovo, at that time part of the Ottoman Empire. He was a grandson of the famous architect from the National Revival, Kolyu Ficheto. Fichev studied in Tarnovo, Gabrovo and in Robert College in Istanbul.

During the Russo-Turkish War (1877–1878) he participated in the Bulgarian volunteer corps and later served as translator for the temporary Russian governors in Gabrovo and Tarnovo. In 1880 he was accepted in the Military School in Sofia and graduated in 1882 with the rank of lieutenant and was assigned to serve in the 20th Varna infantry battalion.In August 1885 he was promoted to First Lieutenant.

During the Serbo-Bulgarian War in 1885 he was a commander of 2nd Company in the 5th Danube Regiment and participated in the defense of Vidin between 12 and 16 November.

In January 1887 he was promoted to the rank of Captain and in 1898 graduated the Military Academy in Torino, Italy. On 1 January 1892 he was promoted a Major and on 1 January 1903 – a Colonel. From the beginning of 1907 he was appointed a commander of the Second Thracian Infantry Division based in Plovdiv and on 1 January 1908 Ivan Fichev was promoted a Major General. From 1910 to 1914 he was the Chief of the General Staff of the Bulgarian Army, which includes the time during the two Balkan Wars, and as such was responsible for devising the general plan for the war against the Ottoman Empire.

During the First Balkan War (1912–1913) he was the head of the operations in Thrace and fought in the successful battles at Lozengrad and Lule Burgas but after the Bulgarian advance was repulsed at Chataldja only 20 km from the Ottoman capital he fell into disgrace. He was one of the Bulgarian delegates during the negotiations that lead to the signing of the Chataldja Armistice on 3 December [O.S. 20 November] 1912. In May 1913 Fichev resigned from his post as an act of protest but his resignation was not accepted and during the Second Balkan War he remained on the post of Chief of the General Staff of the Army. He also signed the Bucharest Peace Treaty as part of the Bulgarian delegation during the negotiations.

After the Balkan Wars he continued to serve as Chief of the General Staff of the Army. On 1 January 1914 he was promoted a Lieutenant General and two weeks later was appointed commander of the 3rd Military District. On 14 September that year he was appointed a Minister of War and served as such until August 1915 when he went into the reserve. After the First World War he was a Minister Plenipotentiary in the Romanian capital Bucharest.

Ivan Fiched died on 13 November 1931 in Sofia.

Flying Blue

Flying Blue — программа, созданная 6 июня 2005 года компаниями Air France и KLM в результате объединения их программ для часто летающих пассажиров Frequence Plus и Flying Dutchman.

С 1 сентября 2007 года Flying Blue стала также бонусной программой авиакомпаний Air Europa и Kenya Airways, которые с этой даты стали являться ассоциированными членами альянса SkyTeam (в данный момент – постоянные члены). C 2011 Flying Blue является также бонусной программой авиакомпаний Tarom и Aircalin. Участники программы Flying Blue могут зарабатывать и тратить мили на рейсах Air France, KLM, Air Europe и Kenya Airways, Tarom, Aircalin, других авиакомпаний-участников альянса SkyTeam, а также ряда авиакомпаний, не входящих в альянс. Также мили можно получать за пользование услугами других партнёров — гостиниц, фирм по прокату автомобилей, страховых компаний онлайн магазинов, оплату товаров определёнными кредитными картами. Неавиационные партнёры также предоставляют свои услуги в обмен на мили, но по соотношению затрат миль и денежной стоимости авиабилеты являются самым выгодным типом премии, как и у всех бонусных программ авиакомпаний.

Разделы о программе Flying Blue присутствуют на сайтах и других сайтах Air France, , , . Там можно получить полную информацию о правилах программы, партнёрах, и состоянии счёта участника, а также заполнить онлайн форму для восстановления неучтённого полёта. На русскоязычном сайте в разделе о программе переведены на русский только заголовки ссылок, которые приводят на англоязычные страницы. Также на английский раздел приводит выбор России на сайте По всем вопросам функционирования программы российским участникам необходимо обращаться в объединённое представительство компаний Air France и KLM в Москве.

Участники Flying Blue получают квалификационные мили (англ. Level Miles, фр. Miles-Statut) и премиальные мили (англ. Award Miles или фр. Miles Prime). Первые можно получить только за полёты авиакомпаниями-членами SkyTeam либо за пользование совместной кредитной картой Air France-KLM-American Express Gold. Премиальные мили получают за полёты, пользование услугами других партнёров, а также в рамках специальных предложений. И те, и другие мили можно использовать для получения премий.

Премиальные мили начисляются параллельно с квалификационными. Размер начислений зависит от расстояния и тарифа. Некоторые самые дешёвые тарифы авиакомпаний-партнёров могут быть исключены из начисления. После пересмотра условий начисления миль с 1 апреля 2009 года по дешёвым тарифам их стали начислять меньше, а по высоким — чуть больше. На рейсах внутри Франции начисления фиксированные по группам тарифов, от 125 миль за самые дешёвые, до 1000 миль за тарифы без ограничений. На международных рейсах за билеты экономического класса начисляются 25—100 процентов от расстояния в милях. На европейских линиях (в том числе на Россию) пассажиры улучшенного экономического класса (есть только у Air France) и бизнес-класса (Air France и KLM) получают 200 процентов от расстояния, на дальнемагистральных рейсах начисления в бизнес-классе составят 125—175 процентов (в зависимости от тарифа), в первом классе — 300 процентов. На рейсах Air Europe можно получить до 200 процентов миль за самые дорогие тарифы как экономического, так и бизнес-класса на европейских рейсах, и не более 150 процентов — за бизнес-класс на дальнемагистральных направлениях.

Премиальные мили вне зависимости от их происхождения можно потратить на бесплатный билет или же на иную премию, предоставляемую компанией-партнёром. До 1 апреля 2009 года мили оставались на счёте участника в течение 36 месяцев с момента последнего начисления за полёт. В апреле 2009 года этот срок был сокращён для участников уровня Ivory (то есть начального уровня) до 20 месяцев.

Квалификационные мили используются для определения статуса участника. Все участники при вступлении получают карту уровня Ivory. При наборе определённого количества квалификационных миль в течение года участник получает карту более высокого уровня.

Также статус можно получить за определённое количество полётов, подлежащих начислению миль: 15, 30 и 60 для Silver, Gold и Platinum соответственно. Такие же условия требуются для подтверждения статуса на следующий год. Однако даже в том случае, когда участник не набрал ни одной квалификационной мили, на следующий год его понижают только на одну ступень — Platinum до Gold, Gold до Silver.

Стандартной привилегией элитных уровней является приоритет в разнообразных списках ожидания, а также первоочередность апгрейда в случае, если в салоне экономического класса не хватает мест. Все элитные уровни получают возможность провезти бесплатный багаж сверх установленной нормы, дополнительные «Элитные» премиальные мили за полёты сверх стандартного начисления, приоритет в листах ожидания, а для наиболее высоких уровней — Gold и Platinum ещё и возможность доступа в специальные залы ожидания (лаунджам) даже при полёте экономическим классом. Уровень Silver обеспечивает в авиакомпаниях-членах SkyTeam привилегии уровня Elite, а Platinum — уровня Elite Plus. Привилегии обладателей карточки Flying Blue Gold зависят от места их постоянного жительства: для участников-резидентов США и Мексики Gold является картой уровня Elite, в то время как участники, проживающие в других странах, относятся к более высокому уровню Elite Plus. По правилам SkyTeam доступ в лаунджи должен быть обеспечен только участникам уровня Elite Plus при полёте международным рейсом авиакомпании-члена SkyTeam. Под это правило подпадают и внутренние рейсы при стыковках с международными. Как правило, участник Flying Blue Gold или Platinum не только может зайти в лаундж сам, но и пригласить ещё одного пассажира, вылетающего тем же рейсом. Хотя некоторые американские авиакомпании ограничивают эту привилегию. В аэропортах Парижа (Шарль-де-Голль) и Амстердама участник Flying Blue уровней Gold и Platinum могут пригласить в лаундж неограниченное число гостей, но за второго и последующих гостей они должны заплатить по 35 евро. Также в этих аэропортах может получить доступ в лаундж и участник уровня Silver, но он уже должен будет заплатить за себя, также 35 евро.

В последнее время в связи с ужесточение условий для пассажиров экономического класса у участников элитных уровней появляются дополнительные привилегии. Например, возможность предварительного выбора места в салоне без доплаты за места с увеличенным пространством, а также возможность бронировать премиальные билеты на специальных условиях в том числе в первый класс.

Heinrich III. von Metz

Heinrich III. von Metz (* im 13. Jahrhundert; † 9. Oktober 1336) war Zisterzienserabt, kaiserlicher Kanzler und 1310 bis 1336 Fürstbischof von Trient.

Er stammte aus der Region Metz, trat in den Zisterzienserorden ein und amtierte von 1297 bis 1306 als Abt des Klosters Eußerthal im Fürstbistum Speyer. Als Papst Bonifatius VIII. im Jahre 1303 König Albrecht I. von Habsburg die Kaiserkrönung anbot, beauftragte er als Überbringer der Nachricht Abt Heinrich von Eußerthal. Offenbar genoss der Geistliche schon zu dieser Zeit eine hohe Reputation.

1306–1309 wirkte er unter dem Namen Heinrich II. als Abt des Eußerthaler Mutterklosters Weiler-Bettnach.

Spätestens ab 1309 erscheint er als Kanzler von König Heinrich VII. und soll dessen Luxemburger Kanzlei schon vor seiner Königswahl geleitet haben. Beide verband ein inniges Freundschaftsverhältnis. Heinrich von Metz begleitete den Herrscher auch auf seinem Italienzug zur Kaiserkrönung (1310–1313).

Vermutlich über den Einfluss des Königs gelangte der Abt am 23. März 1310 ins Amt des Bischofs von Trient. Als solcher hieß er Heinrich III., regierte bis zu seinem Tod mit großem Eifer und ließ u.a. drei Diözesansynoden abhalten. Er gab seinem Domkapitel neue Statuten und ordnete an, dass alle Seelsorger mit ihren Gemeinden, jedes Jahr eine feierliche Wallfahrt zum Grab des Bistumspatrons St. Vigilius unternehmen mussten. Auch mit Heinrich von Kärnten, Graf von Tirol stand der Bischof in persönlichen Beziehungen und erreichte bei ihm 1314 die Rückgabe von Ländereien, die dessen Vater Meinhard II. dem Bistum entfremdet hatte.

Im Konflikt zwischen Ludwig dem Bayern und Papst Johannes XXII. ergriff er die Partei des Heiligen Stuhls.

Nach seinem Tod wurde Heinrich von Metz in der Kathedrale St. Vigilius zu Trient bestattet.

George Campbell Jr.

Dr. George Campbell Jr. (born December 2, 1945 in Richmond, Virginia) was the eleventh President of The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, from July 2000 to July 2011.

Campbell earned a Ph.D. in theoretical physics from Syracuse University, a B.S. in physics from Drexel University and is a graduate of the Executive Management Program at Yale University.

George Campbell served as president of The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art from July, 2000 through June, 2011, and upon retirement was elected President Emeritus by the Board of Trustees. During Dr. Campbell’s tenure, Cooper Union, replaced 40 percent of its academic space, substantially renovated the remaining 60 percent, reduced the campus carbon footprint by 40 percent and grew its endowment from $100 million to more than $600 million. Celebrated by architecture critics as one of the decade’s great buildings, it is among the first science buildings to be awarded Platinum LEEDs Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council for its design although most of the green building designs were never implemented. Among the prestigious awards the building received are the MASterworks Award, Best New Building; Municipal Art Society’s, Green Building Design Award; Global Green USA, Honor Award; American Institute of Architects, Design Award; American Institute of Architects California Council, International Architecture Award; Chicago Anthenaeum, Energy Performance+Architecture Award; interclima+elec, Project of the Year: Green Building; New York Construction Best of 2009 Award, Creating Stellar Architecture Citation; American Institute of Architects National Technology in Architectural Practice, Building Information Model, Architecture Design Award; American Institute of Architects.

Equally important, under Dr. Campbell’s leadership the college enhanced its national and international recognition as one of the leading institutions of higher education[citation needed] . Among the various surveys and polls, the college was ranked first by U.S. News & World Report among regional colleges in the Northeast and the Most Desirable College in the small college category by Newsweek/Kaplan (seventh among all of the nation’s colleges and universities). Many other national and international rankings consistently placed Cooper Union among the best academically.

Previously Campbell was the president and CEO of NACME, Inc., a non-profit corporation focused on engineering education and science and technology policy. Additionally he spent twelve years at AT&T Bell Laboratories, served as a U.S. delegate to the International Telecommunications Union, served on the faculties of Nkumbi International College Zambia, and Syracuse University. He has published papers in mathematical physics, high-energy physics, satellite systems, digital communications, science and technology policy and science education and is co-editor of Access Denied: Race, Ethnicity and the Scientific Enterprise, Oxford University Press ISBN 0-19-510774-8. He has served on a number of national policy boards, including the United States Secretary of Energy Board and the Morella Commission of the U.S. Congress.

As an undergraduate, Dr. Campbell was a Simon Guggenheim Scholar and member of the national physics honor society. Among his awards are the 1993 George Arents Pioneer Medal in Physics, the Drexel University Centennial Medal, as an inaugural a member of the Drexel 100, the Leon J. Obermeyer Award from the City of Philadelphia Board of Education and several honorary doctorates. He has been elected to the Alumni Hall of Fame at Syracuse University and at the prestigious Central High School of Philadelphia. He is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the New York Academy of Sciences.

Campbell currently serves on the Board of Directors of Consolidated Edison, Inc and Barnes and Noble, Inc. He is also on the Board of Trustees of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, MITRE Corporation, Montefiore Medical Center, the Josiah Macy Foundation, the United States Naval Academy Foundation and is chairman of the board of trustees at Webb Institute. He is noted as having said that „at a place like Webb, everyone is admitted on an equal footing. When you remove the financial aspect of the college conversation and everyone understands that their peers are there on the same basis — there’s no questioning or doubting whether anyone belongs. There’s a trust. This particular culture is very rare in higher education today.“.

In the wake of the college’s recent financial difficulties that led to the School dismantling its 150 year mission of free tuition, many faculty, students and alumni questioned Campbell’s actions and intentions as President. According to John Hechinger in 2009, George Campbell helped the school sidestep a crisis. Although by October 31, 2011 Jamshed Bharucha announced an insurmountable deficit that allegedly could not keep the institution sustainable without tuition, in May 2013 former Board of Trustees investment committee chair John Michaelson admitted the school could have continued to use the endowment to cover deficits and would have survived until 2018, when the higher payments from the Chrysler lease start.

In an investigation of Cooper Union’s finances released in a cross petition on September 2, 2015, New York state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman found that „President Campbell misinformed the community as to the strength of Cooper Union’s finances, when they had sufficient information to know the truth of the school’s increasingly dire condition.“ Additionally, Schneiderman found that Campbell had an „apparent conflict of interest“ in a $175,000 bonus that would to be awarded George Campbell Jr., if construction of the New Academic Building at 41 Cooper Square was completed while he was President.

The investigation concluded that the Schools financial difficulties in fact had happened under Campbell’s presidency and planning: „The Attorney General’s financial and operational investigation, which began in August 2014 and the results of which are being released today, revealed that Cooper Union’s current financial problems are rooted in the failure of a 2006 plan to finance the construction of a new academic building at 41 Cooper Square. The plan involved the school taking out a $175 million mortgage loan on the land it owns beneath the Chrysler Building, while simultaneously committing to a long-term renegotiation of its lease with the tenant that owns and operates the building.“

Married since 1968 to Dr. Mary Schmidt Campbell, President of Spelman College and dean emerita of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. Campbell and his wife have three sons and live in Atlanta, GA.

Wild West (TV series)

Wild West is a situation comedy screened from October 2002 until 2004 (12 episodes) starring Dawn French and Catherine Tate. It was described as a dark comedy from the pen of Simon Nye and was filmed on location in Cornwall. Set in the hamlet of St Gweep, Wild West observes the strange goings-on in the local Cornish community. Shop owners Mary Trewednack and her life-partner Angela are the main focus but there are many other characters in this sitcom.

The first series of the sitcom was scheduled to appear on prime-time BBC1 where its eccentricities met with a poor critical and popular response, but a second series was commissioned and both series have received retrospective praise.

Most of the sitcom was filmed in the village of Portloe in Cornwall.

The action centre’s around Angela (Tate) and Mary (French), a lesbian couple who run the local town store and post office. Though self-avowed lesbians, halfway through the first series Mary comments that the only reason they are a couple is because they were the only two people in town who weren’t already in a relationship when they met. Some plots of first series episodes revolve around both of them pursuing romances with men and the jealousy the other partner experiences; by the second series, all mentions of a lesbian relationship are completely dropped, including a recurring gag during the opening credits that showed them in bed together. This is resolved in the final episode of the show.

Mary and Angela are friends with the village locals, including Holly (Duff/Weaver), owner of the local witchcraft centre; Harry (Mylan,) a young local hippy; Old Jake (Bradley,) who runs the local boat tour; Jeff (Foley), a swinger and sexual deviant who owns the local pub with his deaf wife Daphne; and PC Alan Allen (Wright), the somewhat bumbling policeman who becomes Mary’s major romantic interest in series 2.

Each episode centers on a new situation that has come into the lives of the characters and how they deal with it, generally with a focus on the different ways in which Mary and Angela meddle in everyone’s lives.
