RVS Tukoro

RVS Tukoro is a Pacific Forum patrol boat that performs fishery protection and rescue and sovereignty patrols for Vanuatu. Tukoro is one of twenty-two small patrol vessels Australia designed and built for smaller fellow members of the Pacific Forum, after the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea extended control of a 200-kilometre exclusive economic zone for all maritime nations. Tukoro, like her sister ships, displaces 160 tonnes, can accommodate a crew of eighteen for missions lasting ten days or less; the vessel's maximum speed is 24 knots. Australia chose commercial off the shelf equipment, instead of cutting edge military-grade equipment, to ease the maintenance burden for small nations' maintenance facilities. Tukoro was damaged on March 14, 2015 by Hurricane Pam. Hurricane Pam was severe, with winds up to 320 kilometres per hour. Tukoro was washed ashore on Moso Island. Australia offered to repair the vessel, provide further training to Vanuatu personnel; the repairs took sixteen months, the vessel returned to service on August 23, 2016.

In February and March 2017 Tukoro engaged in a joint fishery protection operation with her sister ship from the Solomon Islands, RSIPV Lata. In September 2017 Tukoro helped provide disaster relief to evacuees after the Ambae volcano eruption. Australia is scheduled to replace Tukoro was a larger and more capable Guardian-class patrol boat in 2021

La Fin de Satan

La Fin de Satan is a long religious epic by Victor Hugo, of which 5,700 lines were written between 1854 and 1862, but left unfinished and published after his death. When it was rejected by his publisher in 1857, Hugo tried to integrate it into Petites Epopées announcing that it would form a companion work, along with Dieu, his intention was to invest the storming of the Bastille with a religious significance. There are many gaps small. Satan is defeated and thrown into the Abyss, but Evil is communicated to Man through the agency of Lilith-Isis, she provides three weapons with which Cain murders Abel: The Bronze will become a gauntlet, symbol of War. This preface is followed by three books, interleaved with otherworldly episodes. Book the First tells the story of a powerful and monstrous king of Judaea. Wandering the Earth, which he has dominated and laid waste, he decides to conquer the heavens. For this purpose, he builds a cage and attaches four giant eagles to it, with the meat of dead lions above their heads to draw them upward.

With his servant, the eunuch, Nimrod releases the cage from its tethers, the eagles start towards the heavens. After a journey of one year, moving continuously upwards and finding only an immense blue, Nimrod shoots an arrow into the infinite, is thrown back to Earth. Book the Second describes the death of Jesus, it emphasises the evil of human beings. In "Tenebres", Barabbas curses this impure world which liberated him instead of Christ, claims that we would have chosen to die if offered the choice. Book the Third is about the storming of the Bastille.

Green River Ferry Road

Green River Ferry Road is a park-maintained roadway located inside Mammoth Cave National Park in Edmonson County, Kentucky. The road is 5.63 miles long. The name of the road was given due to the traversal of the Green River, connecting the Visitor's Center area to the Nolin Lake recreational areas; the road begins at an intersection with the Mammoth Cave Parkway just south of the park's visitor center near the campground, crosses the Mammoth Cave Railroad Bike and Hike Trail, a rail trail which marks the original railroad that went from the park's visitors center to Park City. The road goes to a point along the Green River, crosses it via the Green River Ferry; that ferry became the only operational ferry in all of Edmonson County after the Bear Creek and Houchin's Ferries went out of service in the late 1960s and October 2013, respectively. After crossing the ferry the road traverses the north-central portions of the park, including passing sites such as the Maple Springs Research Center and the trailheads of the Big Hollow and Maple Springs Trails.

The majority of the park's hiking trails are accessed via Green River Maple Springs roads. Green River Ferry Road ends at the park's northern boundary. Beyond this point, the road becomes Stockholm Road with the state highway designation, Kentucky Route 1352, which connects the area with KY 1827 at the community of Stockholm; the entire route is in Edmonson County.
