1930–31 NHL season

The 1930–31 NHL season was the 14th season of the National Hockey League. Ten teams played 44 games each; the Montreal Canadiens beat the Chicago Black Hawks three games to two in a best-of-five Stanley Cup final for their second consecutive Cup win. Art Ross bitterly complained about the Stanley Cup final setup, his team had been vanquished in two consecutive games by the Montreal Canadiens in 1929–30. As a result, the Board of Governors decided to make the final a best-of-five series; the Great Depression was starting to take its toll on the NHL. In attempts to solve financial problems, the Pittsburgh Pirates moved to Philadelphia and became the Philadelphia Quakers, but there was nothing about the team to win games or fans, it was intended. The arena was never built, the team folded after only one season in the new city; the state of Pennsylvania would be without an NHL team until the league doubled in size 36 years later. The Ottawa Senators were in a similar financial boat but instead of relocating, they sold a star asset and future Hall of Famer, King Clancy, to the Toronto Maple Leafs for $35,000 and two players.

After the sale of Clancy, the Senators' owners put the team up for sale for $200,000, although no bids approached anywhere near that figure. The team would suspend operations before the start of the next season; the Detroit Cougars changed the team name to the Detroit Falcons. Howie Morenz led the league in scoring. Dick Irvin started his career in coaching with Chicago and they finished second in the American Division, he resigned at season's end after having taken the Black Hawks to the finals.

On March 26, during the second game of the best-of-five series between the Bruins and Canadiens, coach-GM Art Ross of Boston pulled his goalie for an extra attacker while down 1–0 with 40 seconds left in the final period; the attempt was unsuccessful. This marked. In the final series, the Chicago Black Hawks took an early two games to one lead in the newly expanded best-of-five Stanley Cup finals but the Montreal Canadiens came back and won the series three games to two for their second consecutive Stanley Cup win.

Howie Morenz won the Hart Trophy for the second time in his career. Frank Boucher won the Lady Byng for the fourth consecutive year. Roy Worters won the Vezina Trophy for only time in his career; this was the first season that the NHL named its'all-stars'. Although Roy Worters won the Vezina Trophy for "most valuable goaltender", Charlie Gardiner and Tiny Thompson were named to the all-star teams at the goaltender position. Source: NHL.

Pachira is a genus of tropical trees distributed in Central and South America and India. They are classified in the subfamily Bombacoideae of the family Malvaceae; the genus was assigned to Bombacaceae. Prior to that the genus was found in the Sterculiaceae; some 77 species have been identified. They form small or large trees with digitate leaves, the fruit an oval woody one-celled capsule opening by a number of divisions and containing many seeds; the genus name is derived from a language spoken in Guyana. Although first named Pachira by Jean Baptiste Aublet in 1775, Carl Linnaeus the Younger unaware of this separately is said to have called the genus Carolinea after Princess "Sophia Caroline of Baden" in 1782; the principle of precedence gives the authority to Pachira. The Margrave of Baden, Karl Wilhelm founded the Karlsruhe Palace in 1715, he had a considerable interest in Botany the exotic, had large numbers of trees imported for the Palace Gardens. He was succeeded by his Grandson, Karl Friedrich who married Princess Karoline Luise von Hessen-Darmstadt in 1751.

Karoline Luise was a noted botanist. She corresponded with Carl von Linné, cultivated numerous plants in the palace gardens, had engravings of them made for a book and had them all classified according to Linnaeus' system. Linnaeus' son, Carl Linnaeus the younger, recognised her contributions by naming one of the trees, Pachira aquatica Carolinea princeps after her. Timber and seeds for stuffing pillows and cushions.

Pentecostal Union of Romania

The Pentecostal Union of Romania is Romania's fourth-largest religious body and one of its eighteen recognised religious denominations. At the 2011 census, 367,938 Romanians declared themselves to be Pentecostals. Ethnically, as of 2002, they were 85.2% Romanians, 10.6% Roma, 1.9% Ukrainians, 1.8% Hungarians and 0.5% belonged to other groups. They have 7,879 affiliates and 354 pastors, along with strong lay leadership; the denomination originates in the early 1920s and, headed by a central leadership, is divided into nine regional communities: Arad, Braşov, Cluj-Napoca, Constanţa, Oltenia-Argeş, Maramureş-Sătmar and Suceava. Membership is concentrated in Crişana and northern Moldavia. Pentecostalism was introduced to Romania in 1922 by Gheorghe Bradin, who set up a thirty-member church in Păuliş, Arad County after living in the United States since before 1910; the church grew and it was declared illegal in 1923 due to internal divisions within the church regarding its basic convictions, shared only by a few "initiated" individuals.

Still, growth continued, but appeals for official status were denied in 1924 and 1929. During this time, a significant number of Pentecostal churches identified as Baptist in order to be registered with an official religious organisation as specified by the 1928 Law on Cults. In 1940 the Antonescu regime imprisoned a large number of Pentecostalists and Baptists planning to send them to concentration camps in Transnistria, it received provisional recognition in 1946 and was granted official state recognition in 1950, at which point membership stood at 36,000. A merger took place among at least three different groups, one of which practiced ritual foot washing; the group held its first nationwide congress in July 1951 and moved its main administrative offices to Bucharest in 1954. Bradin was its first president, succeeded after his death in 1962 by Pavel Bochian. A rural phenomenon until the 1950s, it now has an established presence in cities as well, with about a 60%-40% rural-urban split in 2002.

A seminary was opened in 1976. During the Communist period, Pentecostalist leaders were models of cautious discretion in their relationship with the state. Bochian spoke eloquently at home and abroad about the accomplishments of President Ceauşescu and the freedom his church enjoyed, he took part in the 50th Interconfessional Theological Conference at Bucharest in 1987 and was the only neo-Protestant quoted by the international press. He declared that his country had become "more beautiful and stronger" each year, expressed special gratitude to the state for the pastoral programme and the publications the churches were allowed to have, he called particular attention to the cross-cultural appeal of his church, noting that services were conducted in Hungarian, German and Ukrainian in addition to the Romanian language of the majority. At the close of his address, he praised Ceauşescu's "indefatigable work" for global peace. During the 1968 invasion of Czechoslovakia, when Ceauşescu feared Romania would be invaded next, an official relayed to him that a prophecy had been made by a Pentecostal believer in Vicovu de Sus to the effect that the country's borders were protected by angels.

The church strove to transform its members to become model socialist citizens of industry and integrity. By the 1980s, the church was anxious for better relations with other religious groups the dominant Romanian Orthodox Church from which it had long been estranged, the Baptists, severe critics of their focus on glossolalia. Periodic reports continued of Pentecostal believers' difficulties over the smuggling of Bibles, holding unapproved Bible classes or permitting insistent American missionaries to speak at services without approval. In 1974, Pentecostal activist Vasile Rascol was sentenced to two years' imprisonment for illegal distribution of Romanian-language religious literature printed abroad, including translations of the Bible and The Pilgrim's Progress. Overall, the church did not give state authorities as much trouble as did the Baptist church. By the end of Ceauşescu's rule, estimates place membership at over 250,000 in about 1,200 registered churches, with a further 300 awaiting authorisation and greater numbers that had not applied for official status.

Since the Romanian Revolution of 1989, the church has been represented at European and world Pentecostal conferences, their leaders have visited various Pentecostal churches abroad. In particular, it has close relationships with the Cleveland Church of God and the Assemblies of God, its leaders have made frequent trips to the United States, where the Romanian Pentecostal Church has seen strong growth, due in large measure to a steady stream of immigrants. In Romania, the real strength of the movement is subject to some dispute: some sources suggest 450,000 or over 800,000 adherents, with church authorities claiming undercounting by hostile or careless census-takers; the census recorded a 50% jump in membership between 1992 and 2002, growth has been attributed to conversion efforts and a high birth
