1941 South Australian state election

State elections were held in South Australia on 29 March 1941. All 39 seats in the South Australian House of Assembly were up for election; the incumbent Liberal and Country League government led by Premier of South Australia Thomas Playford IV defeated the opposition Australian Labor Party led by Leader of the Opposition Robert Richards. Though the LCL was in minority government with 15 of 39 seats following the 1938 election, where 14 of 39 lower house MPs were elected as independents which as a grouping won more than either major party with 40 percent of the primary vote, the Playford LCL won a one-seat majority government following the 1941 election. Turnout crashed to a record-low 50 percent, triggering the government to institute compulsory voting from the 1944 election.

Adrianus Turnebus

Adrianus Turnebus was a French classical scholar. Turnebus was born in Les Andelys in Normandy. At the age of twelve he was sent to Paris to study, attracted great notice by his remarkable abilities. After having held the post of professor of belles-lettres in the University of Toulouse, in 1547 he returned to Paris as professor of Greek at the College Royal. In 1562 he exchanged this post for a professorship in Greek philosophy. In 1552 he was entrusted with the printing of the Greek books at the royal press, in which he was assisted by his friend, Guillaume Morel. Joseph Justus Scaliger was his pupil, he died of tuberculosis on 12 June 1565 in Paris. Montaigne wrote that he "knew more and better, what he knew, than any man in his age or of many ages past", he was the father of Odet de Turnèbe. His works chiefly consist of philological dissertations and translations of Greek authors into Latin and French, his son Étienne published his complete works in three volumes, his son Adrien published his Adversaria, containing explanations and emendations of numerous passages by classical authors.

Eyes of the Soul

Eyes of the Soul is a lost 1919 American silent romantic drama film produced by Famous Players-Lasky and distributed through Paramount Pictures and Artcraft. The star of the picture is Elsie Ferguson and its director was Emile Chautard; as described in a film publication, Gloria Swann is driving Judge Malvin's automobile when she nearly runs down Larry Gibson, a blind soldier in a wheelchair. The two meet thereafter, with Gloria reading to him and taking him on wheelchair outings. Gloria falls in love with him. Judge Malvin, who loves Gloria, tries to dissuade her, calling the soldier a "blind wreck." When Larry's finances get low, Gloria takes some songs he has written to a music publisher, being a cabaret singer, performs them at the Palm Garden club. The songs are a hit, Larry signs a contract with the publisher. Instead of a mansion with the judge, Gloria ends up living in a boarding house with Larry, but they are happy. Larry is reconciled to the loss of his sight, for he sees through "the eyes of his soul."

Dán Díreach

Dán Díreach is a style of poetry developed in Ireland from the 12th century until the destruction of Gaelic society in the mid 17th century. It was a complex form of recitative designed to be chanted to the accompaniment of a harp; this poetry was delivered by a professional reciter called a reacaire or marcach duaine. It was the specialised production of the professional poets known as Filidh; the complexities of the structure becomes more understandable when we consider that Irish poetry evolved as an orally transmitted art. They recited in public. Form, structure and rhyme, expression all play an essential part of the performance of poets; the aim was to amaze an audience with vocal virtuosity and spiritual depth. In this they must have succeeded as the Filidh came to be viewed with a sense of awe and fear; the formal production of Dán Direach by trained poets came to an end with the destruction of Irish Gaelic society due to the Plantations of Ireland in the 17th century. However, the forms continued in folk memory as chants and informally delivered lays that continued to be recited in Gaelic speaking areas of Ireland and Scotland into the early 20th century.

Gaelic poetical culture may have continued to influence Caribbean and African American forms of singing in the 17th and 18th century when the language was spoken by immigrants in the Caribbean and American south. Many hundreds of poems are still extant as they were collected into poem books called Duanaire by wealthy patrons. Rhyme has an old history of sophisticated development in Ireland, it was not a feature of Latin verse. There is some reason to believe that Ireland brought developed forms of rhyme into other European cultures through the influence of the literate monks and foundations created by them across northern Europe; the development of Dán Direach seems to coincide with the rise of the secular schools in the 12th century. Families that had their roots in the great monastic literary tradition appear to have continued the learned tradition outside the religious environment of the monasteries after the reform of the Irish church in the 12th century; the Ó Dálaigh family of bards were considered to be the foremost exponents of Dán Direach throughout the Medieval period.

An eyewitness account "The Action and Pronunciation of the Poems, in the Presence of the Maecenas, or the principal Person it related to, was perform'd with a great deal of Ceremony, in a Consort of Vocal and Instrumental Musick. The poet himself said nothing, but directed and took care; the Bards having first had the Composition from him, got it well by Heart, now pronounc'd it orderly, keeping Pace with a Harp, touch'd upon that Occasion. The training was long and arduous. Poems were created in the dark while lying down. Traditional payment was in gold rings, land or apparel. Other notable styles practiced may have been the caoineadh or death lament and the fonn or mantra of repetition. Aer refers to poetical a form used against the powerful; as satirists poets had the power to destroy the reputation of the highest nobility. Some satires were reputed to bring blemish to the accused, others humiliation. Irish contains many terms for types of rhyme and rhythms used in the delivery of dán direach.

A poem consisted of quatrains called rann. A single line is called ceathramhain. Whatever sound, syllable or line a poem begins; this is called dúnadh. Consonants were divided into hard, light and strong groups. Strong consonants rhymed with light for example. Vowels were grouped into slender; the broad vowels are a, o, u, á, ó, & ú. The slender vowels are e, i, é & í. Consonants were classed as slender depending on what vowels preceded them. Comhardadh means correspondence or equality, approximates to rhyme in English but has a wider meaning. Comhardadh slán means'perfect rhyme' and comhardadh briste means'broken rhyme'. Comhardadh could be internal, or aicill. Aicill technique rhymes the final stressed word of one line with the next-to-last unstressed word in the next line; the final rhyming word is called rinn,'tip' and the unstressed rhyming word airdrinn,'attention-tip'. A word can rhyme with two words instead of just one; the standard forms of rhyme were recognised. Amus meant vowel rhyming or assonance, in which the vowels are repeated, uaithne consonant rhyming or consonance, in which the consonants are the same, uaim alliteration, or the repetition of initial consonants.

Comhardadh occurs only when the first syllable of each word had the same vowel and consonants of the same class and broadness/slenderness. The terminology extends to the number of syllables in a word. Dialt - a single syllable, or a monosyllabic word recomhrac - 2 syllable word iarcomhrac - 3 syllable word felis - 4 syllable word cloenre - 5 syllable word luibenchossac - 6 syllable word claidemnas - 7 syllable word bricht - 8 syllable word An domhan ó mhuir go muir Ar son gur chuir fa chomhthaibh - Créad acht cás bróin do bhrosdadh? - Ar bhás níor fhóir Alasdar.

Wobulation is the known variation in a characteristic. For example, wobulation of advanced radar waveform modulations – where the repetition rate or centre frequency of a signal is changed in a repetitive fashion to reduce the probability of interception. In large-screen television technology, wobulation is Hewlett-Packard's term for a form of interlacing designed for use with fixed pixel displays; the term is loosely derived from the word'wobble' and was inspired by HP's work with the overlap of printing ink. Wobulation reduces the cost and complexity of components required for the creation of high resolution TVs. Wobulation works by overlapping pixels, it does so by generating multiple sub-frames of data while an optical image shifting mechanism displaces the projected image of each sub-frame by a fraction of a pixel. The sub-frames are projected in rapid succession, appear to the human eye as if they are being projected and superimposed. For example, a high-resolution HDTV video frame is divided into two sub-frames, A and B.

Sub-frame A is projected, the miniature mirror on a digital micromirror device switches and displaces sub-frame B one half pixel length as it is projected. When projected in rapid succession, the sub-frames superimpose, create to the human eye a complete and seamless image. If the video sub-frames are aligned so that the corners of the pixels in the second sub-frame are projected at the centers of the first, the illusion of double the resolution is achieved, like in an interlaced CRT display, thus a lower resolution fixed pixel device using wobulation can emulate the picture of higher resolution fixed device, at a reduced cost. As of 2007, wobulation is used only to double the horizontal resolution of a display, unlike CRT interlacing that doubles the vertical resolution. However, wobulation is capable of doubling the horizontal resolution of an image. While wobulation can in theory be used in many types of display devices, it is primarily used in displays using Digital Light Processing. DLP is a Texas Instruments technology.

TI calls its implementation of wobulation'SmoothPicture'. Horizontal wobulation used in current TI products allows a DMD chip with a 960×1080 mirror array to produce a 1920×1080 pixel picture; the image overlap inherent in the use of wobulation eliminates the'screen door' effect common on other fixed pixel displays such as plasma and LCD, but may in some implementations create some reduction in sharpness. Wobulation is used by a number of TV manufacturers, including Hewlett-Packard, Mitsubishi, RCA, Toshiba. Wobulation technology used in TVs is becoming obsolete, as manufacturers shift away from producing rear projection TVs. US patent 6078038, J.

In 1968, students at Monroe High School presented an idea to the Principal for an alternative education program. In October 1969, teachers began helping students attain their goal. Parents and students soon joined forces. Led by Lew Marks, an English teacher at the school, they presented a proposal for the School Without Walls to the District Superintendent in January 1971.

On February 4, 1971, the Board of Education approved the proposal that created the School Without Walls, which opened in September 1971 at 4 Elton Street, sharing space with the Visual Studies Workshop at the time. Subsequent locations included the 5th floor of the building located at 50 West Main Street in and a floor of the building located at 400 Andrews Street, both in the city of Rochester. School Without Walls moved to its present building, the former Sears Automotive building located near Monroe High School, in 1987; the middle school was closed in 2013.
