2011 NFL Draft

The 2011 NFL Draft was the 76th installment of the annual NFL Draft, where the franchises of the National Football League select newly eligible football players. Like the 2010 draft, the 2011 draft was held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, New York, over three days: this year, the first round took place on Thursday, April 28, 2011; the Carolina Panthers, who had the worst record for the 2010 NFL season at 2–14, had the right to the first selection in the draft, where they selected Auburn University quarterback Cam Newton, the 2010 Heisman Trophy winner. A second Heisman Trophy winner, running back Mark Ingram Jr. from Alabama was selected by New Orleans late in the first round. This was the eleventh draft which included multiple Heisman winners, the first time that it has occurred in consecutive drafts. Five of the first six picks played college football in the Southeastern Conference. For the second consecutive year—and the third time in NFL history—the top two selections of the draft won Offensive and Defensive Rookie of the Year awards, respectively.

The top two picks in the draft, Cam Newton and Denver linebacker Von Miller, played against each other in Super Bowl 50 on the teams that drafted them. This marked the first time that the top two picks in a single draft faced each other in the Super Bowl; the Broncos won, 24-10, with Miller winning Super Bowl MVP. Teams were allowed ten minutes to make each selection in the first round, seven minutes per selection in the second round and five minutes in each of the subsequent rounds; the time allotment ran out for the Baltimore Ravens on their first round pick, allowing the Kansas City Chiefs to move up to the 26th pick and dropping the Ravens to the 27th pick. It is considered one of the best drafts of contemporary times, with many players showing Hall of Fame level talent, including three-time Defensive Player of the Year J. J. Watt, 2015 NFL MVP Cam Newton, Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller, 2015 and 2018 receiving yards leader Julio Jones, perennial All-Pro players such as Richard Sherman, A. J. Green, Tyron Smith, Jason Kelce, Patrick Peterson.

The following is the breakdown of the 254 players selected by position: Despite an ongoing labor dispute between league owners and players over a new collective bargaining agreement, a provision in the expired CBA ensured that this draft would still take place, despite the fact that the owners had imposed a lockout to prevent the start of the league year. Fans in attendance at the draft expressed their displeasure with the lockout by booing NFL commissioner Roger Goodell during the event and chanting "We want football."Due to the labor situation and the lockout, franchises were not able to trade players for draft selections, were unable to sign or contact drafted or undrafted players until the lockout was lifted. Because of the lockout, the Panthers could not sign or negotiate with their first draft pick before the draft began, as other teams have done in years past; the restriction on trading players extended to players selected in this draft—teams were unable to swap any player once selected, e.g. as happened in 2004 when the San Diego Chargers and New York Giants completed a draft day trade involving Eli Manning and Philip Rivers, selected first and fourth respectively.

In addition, with no agreement in place between owners and players mandating future drafts, teams were advised by the league that any trades involving future draft picks would be made at the teams' "own risk". This warning did not dissuade several teams from making trades involving future selections; the National Football League Players Association considered plans to dissuade potential prospects from attending the draft, but a record 25 potential draftees attended the event, including Von Miller, one of the named plaintiffs in the players' antitrust lawsuit against the league. A record 56 underclassmen announced their intention to forgo their remaining NCAA eligibility and declare themselves eligible to be selected in the draft. Of the 56 eligible underclassmen, 43 were drafted; the selection of Newton, a junior, marked the third straight draft where the first overall selection was an underclassman. Since non-seniors were first eligible to be drafted in 1990, fourteen first overall picks have been players who have entered the draft early.

Eight of the first ten players chosen in this draft were non-seniors, which broke the record of six set in 1997 and matched in 2006. Jake Locker and Von Miller were the only two seniors among the first ten draftees; the draft order is based on each team's record from the previous season, with teams which qualified for the postseason selecting after those which failed to make the playoffs. A supplemental draft was held on August 22, 2011. For each player selected in the supplemental draft, the team forfeits its pick in that round in the draft of the following season. Six players were available in the supplemental draft. In the explanations below, denotes trades that took place during the draft, while indicates trades completed pre-draft.

Soviet frigate Dostoynyy

Dostoynyy was a Soviet Navy 1135 Burevestnik-class Large Anti-Submarine Ship or Krivak-class frigate. Dostoynyy displaced 2,835 tonnes standard and 3,190 was 123 m in length. Power was provided by a combination of two 18,000 horsepower M3 and two 6,000 horsepower M60 gas turbines installed as a COGAG set named М7 for a design speed of 32 knots; the ship was designed for anti-submarine warfare around four URPK-4 Metel missiles, backed up by 533 millimetres torpedoes and a pair of RBU-6000 213 mm anti-submarine rocket launchers. Launched on 8 May 1971, Dostoynyy was deployed to the Northern Fleet on 28 April 1972 as part of the 10th Brigade; the vessel was designated a Guard Ship from 28 July 1977. and was upgraded with URPK-5 missiles between January 1985 and August 1988. After serving in the Mediterranean Sea, the ship was decommissioned on 30 June 1993 and scrapped between 1994 and 1995

Wheeler's October 1863 Raid

Wheeler's October 1863 Raid was a large cavalry raid in southeastern Tennessee during the American Civil War. Maj. Gen. Joseph Wheeler's Confederate cavalry scored a great initial success, but subsequently was roughed up by Union cavalry during its withdrawal south of the Tennessee River. After being defeated in the Battle of Chickamauga, the Union Army of the Cumberland, commanded by Maj. Gen. William S. Rosecrans, withdrew into the city of Chattanooga and was besieged by Gen. Braxton Bragg's Army of Tennessee; the Federals held a rail head at Bridgeport, but because Bragg's army occupied Lookout Mountain, they had to bring supplies into the beleaguered city by wagon. The routes along the Tennessee River were harassed by the Confederates, so Rosecrans had to bring most of his supplies into Chattanooga from Bridgeport along a 60-mile wagon route across Walden's Ridge. Bragg ordered Wheeler to take the bulk of his cavalry corps and disrupt Rosecrans's communications across Walden's Ridge. Wheeler set out on October 1 with the divisions of Brig. Gen. Frank Crawford Armstrong and Maj. Gen. William T. Martin, plus part of Maj. Gen. John A. Wharton's division.

He broke through the screen of Brig. Gen. George Crook's 2nd Cavalry Division near Decatur and rode toward Walden's Ridge. On October 2 at Anderson's Cross Roads, Wheeler surprised a train of 800 mule-drawn wagons, plus sutler's wagons; the Southern horsemen overwhelmed the few guards and began to carry out their orders to "kill the mules and burn the wagons." Soon, whiskey was discovered in the sutler's wagons and Wheeler's men began pillaging the wagons for new clothing and other booty. The officers were either unable to stop what became an eight-hour orgy of plundering. Soon, Col. Edward M. McCook arrived with his brigade of Union cavalry. In a series of skirmishes, McCook lost 70 men while recapturing 800 mules and a few wagons and inflicting 270 losses on the tipsy Southerners. Wharton rode to McMinnville, captured with a loss of 388 Federals and 23 Confederates. Meanwhile, Crook could deflect Wheeler's main body away from the supply base at Murfreesboro, Tennessee. By October 7, Brig. Gen. Robert Byington Mitchell concentrated McCook and Crook at Shelbyville, Tennessee.

That day, Crook mauled Henry B. Davidson's brigade of Wharton near Farmington, losing 75 Federals while inflicting a loss of 310; the pursuit continued in foul weather. Wheeler escaped across the Tennessee River on October 9 at Rogersville, but not before another 95 of his horsemen were overwhelmed near Pulaski, Tennessee. Wheeler inflicted significant damage to the Army of the Cumberland's supply line, he claimed killing 1,000 mules. However, during the pursuit, his command was badly roughed up by the Union horsemen, "his once proud command all but wrecked." In the face of the aggressive Northern cavalry, Brig. Gen. Phillip Roddey cut short his follow-up raid. Another planned cavalry raid by Maj. Gen. Stephen D. Lee was canceled after he found out that Wheeler's command was no longer in the field.

Menteng

Menteng is a district of Central Jakarta, one of the administrative municipalities in the special capital territory of Jakarta, Indonesia. The district is best known as the location of the Menteng residential area, a new urban design developed in the 1910s to become a residential area for Dutch people and high officials. At the time of its development, the area was the first planned garden suburb in colonial Batavia. Supported by easy access to service centers and nearby to the central business district, this area has become one of the most expensive areas for residential real estate in Jakarta. Several important people such as former president Suharto take up residence in Menteng; the President of the United States Barack Obama spent his childhood in Menteng, attending local schools including Besuki Public School and St. Francis of Assisi School. Menteng district is located to the south of Merdeka Square, it is bounded by Kebon Sirih Road to the north, a canal to the west, the canal Kali Malang to the south, the Ciliwung river to the east.

Menteng district is served by several railway stations, including Gondangdia Station, Sudirman Station, Cikini Station, Mampang Station. Mohammad Husni Thamrin Road, the main artery of Jakarta, is in the western part of Menteng district; the district of Menteng is divided into five kelurahan or urban villages: Menteng - area code 10310The southern area of the Menteng Project. Pegangsaan - area code 10320Known as the location of the house where the Proclamation of Indonesian Independence was read. Cikini - area code 10330 Kebon Sirih - area code 10340 Gondangdia - area code 10350The northern area of the Menteng Project. Menteng residential area is located in Menteng district; the residential area spread over the administrative villages of Gondangdia. Menteng residential area is the first modern housing estate in Jakarta, it was developed by the private real estate company N. V. de Bouwploeg, established by P. A. J. Moojen, active in Batavia since 1930; the plan of Menteng residential area was designed by Moojen and F.

J. Kubatz during the course of the 1910s. Moojen was a member of a development group established by Batavia city government, the Commisie van toesicht op het Geheer van het Land Menteng, responsible for planning and developing the larger area of Gondangdia of which Menteng was the centerpiece. Menteng Project was the most ambitious residential planning project between 1910 and 1939; the project was meant to be the southern expansion of the city Batavia. Karsten, in his 1939 memorandum to the colonial government, referring to Menteng Project and several other residential projects in the Indies - pointed out that real estate offices and the building trade have turned their attention to the needs of the upper middle class - those of the Europeans, but moreover those of the small category categories of the other population groups in that class; the land, now Menteng residential area was privately owned estates Menteng and Gondangdia. Between 1755-1762, the Menteng estate belonged to a Moor Assan Nina Daut.

In 1790, the land was handed over to Pieter J. du Chene de Vienne. In 1815, the land was handed over to Jakob P. Barends. In 1867, the land was handed over to an Arab man from Hadramaut, one of the recorded descendants was the Shahap/Shahab family who were the landlord of the private land in what is now Menteng from 1881 to 1990, as recorded in the 1817 Regerings-Almanak. In 1890, this private land was an estate of 73 hectares inhabited by 3,562 peasants, situated south of Kebon Sirih neighborhood. In 1901 the land recorded as being used for rice paddies and coconut plantation; when the city of Batavia was confident to absorb new supply of middle-class housing – as well as to prevent further illegal kampung development from encroaching onto this area – the city decided to purchase the Menteng land and created the technical commission to oversee its development. De Bouwploeg was established to acquire a plot of land in Menteng and another 73 hectare of land from the Gondangdia private estate.

The land in Gondangdia private estate was bought by Bouw- en Cultuur Maatschappij Gondangdia from a Dutch widow J. V. D. Bergh in 1892, which at that time inhabited by 3,052 peasants. Moojen's original plan for Menteng resembles the garden city model of Ebenezer Howard; the plan combined wide cross-cutting boulevards with concentric rings of streets and a central public square. At the northern entrance to the Menteng residential area, he designed civic landmarks: the Art Center, the cultural center of early 20th-century Batavia. Although planning for Menteng began in 1910, it was not until 1912 that Moojen's revised plan was unveiled. Key difference with the original garden city model was that Menteng was not intended to be a freestanding, self-contained place, but to link up with adjacent residential areas. For example, the broad Nassau Boulevard that bisected the Menteng residential area adjacent to the central square was intended to connect Tanah Abang to the west and Meester Cornelis to the east.

The Java Street was to serve as a north-south connector from Kebon Sirih to the southern fringe of Batavia, the boundary was marked at that time by the line of a flood canal. Moojen's plan was extensively modified by F. J. Kubatz as part of the city's next development plan. In the Kubatz plan, the street pattern was changed and a small pond was added to the east of the central park area named Bisschooplein after G. J. Bishop, mayor of Batavia. Other architects contributed to the character of Menteng Residential Area throu

Antonis Mor

Sir Anthonis Mor known as Anthonis Mor van Dashorst and Antonio Moro, was a Netherlandish portrait painter, much in demand by the courts of Europe. He has been referred to as Antoon, Anthonis or Mor van Dashorst, as Antonio Moro, Anthony More, etc. but signed most of his portraits as Anthonis Mor. Mor developed a formal style for court portraits based on Titian, influential on court painters across Europe in the Iberian Peninsula, where it created a tradition that led to Diego Velázquez, it can include considerable psychological penetration in portraits of men, but always gives the subject a grand and self-possessed air. Mor was born in Utrecht, Netherlands, by some estimation between 1516 and 1520. Little is known about his early life, except that his artistic education commenced under Jan van Scorel, his earliest known work is a portrait, now in a collection in Stockholm, dated 1538. A group of Knights of St. John at Utrecht, supposed to have been painted about 1541. In 1547 Mor was received as a member of the Venerable Guild of St. Luke at Antwerp, shortly afterwards he attracted the attention of Cardinal Granvelle, Bishop of Arras, who became his steady patron.

Of the portraits executed during the early period of his career as Granvelle's protege, two are notable: one of the bishop himself, one of the Duke of Alba, which now belongs to the Hispanic Society of New York. Between 1549 and 1550 Prince Philip II of Spain traveled around the Netherlands to present himself as the future ruler. Mor painted his portrait in Brussels in 1549, he visited Italy, where he copied some works by Titian, notably the Danaë. In the middle of 1550 Mor left for Lisbon with a commission from Mary of Hungary to portray the Portuguese branch of the family. Mor traveled via Valladolid, where he painted the portraits of Maximilian II and his wife Maria of Austria, their daughter Anna and the son of Philip, Don Carlos. In Lisbon, Mor portrayed King João, Queen Catharina, Prince João and Philip’s future wife, Princess Maria of Portugal. Little more is known about Mor's stay in Portugal, but he was back in Brussels by November 1553. After the sudden death of the king of England, Edward VI, in July 1553, the Spanish king Charles V now saw the possibility of an alliance between Spain and England.

The engagement between Philip and his Portuguese princess was broken and negotiations started for a marriage with the successor to the English throne, Mary Tudor. During these negotiations, Mor was sent to England to paint a portrait of Mary, but the exact date of the painting is unknown; this portrait was much appreciated in England and Mor made at least three versions, which became much the best-known likeness of the queen. On 20 December 1553, Philip appointed Mor as painter in his service. In October 1555, Charles V abdicated from the throne. During the ceremonies and festivities surrounding the coronation of his son Philip as king of Spain, Mor would have received many commissions for paintings. Many of these paintings are lost or only known through copies. Mor was productive after Philip's ascension to the throne, produced some of his most important portraits in this period, such as the portrait of Prince William I of Orange, the portrait of Alessandro Farnese and a new portrait of Philip II.

Other important works from this period include the portrait of Jane Dormer, the portraits of Jean Lecocq and his wife, the portrait of Jan van Scorel, at a time to be hung at his tomb and now belongs to the Society of Antiquaries. Following the death of Mary Tudor in 1558, King Philip was remarried in June 1559 to Isabella de Valois, whom Mor portrayed ca. 1561. This portrait appears to have been lost. From this period dates the only known self-portrait of Mor, now in the Uffizi Gallery, one of his wife, now in the Prado, it seems that Mor accompanied King Philip on his return to Spain in 1559. That Mor stayed at the Spanish court is confirmed by the letters which Philip sent to Mor after he had left again in 1561. In his letters, Philip requested Mor's return to court several times, but the painter never complied with his repeated requests. Among the works which Mor painted in Spain are the Portrait of Juana of Austria and the Portrait of Don Carlos. A much-praised work from this period is the Portrait of Pejerón, the fool of the Earl of Benavente and the Duke of Alba.

There has been extensive speculation about the reason for Mor's departure from the Spanish court. According to Carel van Mander, Mor became too confidential with the king and this aroused the suspicion of the Inquisition, he may have been alarmed by the repressive Counter-Reformation tenor of the Spanish court. Mor's pupil Alonso Sánchez Coello continued to work in his master's style, replaced him as the Spanish court painter. On his return to the Netherlands, Mor traveled back and forth between Utrecht and Brussels. In this period he was in regular contact with Granvelle and worked at the Dutch court, where he portrayed Margaretha of Parma. After his return, Mor focused on the portrayal of citizens of merchants and their wives in Antwerp. In addition to portraits like these, he also

Products produced from The Simpsons

The long-running television animation The Simpsons has featured a number of fictional products, sometimes spoofs of real-life products, that have subsequently been recreated by real world companies attempting to exploit the popularity of The Simpsons. In 2007, as part of a "reverse product placement" marketing campaign for The Simpsons Movie, real life versions of a number of Simpsons products were sold in 7-Eleven stores. Real cans of Buzz Cola, boxes of Krusty-O's cereal, a special edition of the Radioactive Man Comic were all sold in stores alongside other The Simpsons merchandise. Buzz Cola is a brand of cola, an licensed product of Twentieth Century Fox, its slogan is "twice the sugar, twice the caffeine". The slogan is a parody of the former Jolt Cola slogan "all the sugar and twice the caffeine". A prior slogan used was "There's a little boogie in every bottle". Sometimes Buzz Cola is used for making a statement of the advertising industry. In "E-I-E-I-" the Simpson family is at the movies watching the ads.

Here they watch an Allied Forces soldier storm the Normandy beaches and charge a German. The German falls to the ground dead and the Allied soldier reaches for a can of Buzz Cola in his belt pocket. A voice over says "Buzz Cola: The taste you kill for!" and the German comes alive again to say "Available in ze lobby". Jonathan Grey writes in his book Watching With The Simpsons that "the cola ad, for instance, scorns the proclivity of ads to use any gimmick to grasp attention, regardless of ethics". Although a general parody of popular cola drinks, parallels can be observed between Buzz Cola and Pepsi. For example, many of the mock television commercials that appear for Buzz Cola on The Simpsons follow the same youth-oriented approach of real Pepsi commercials. In another example, Homer gets his arm stuck in a vending machine selling "Crystal Buzz Cola", a parody of Crystal Pepsi. In the episode Dude, Where's My Ranch?, Maggie Simpson dances in her crib with her midriff exposed while a Britney Spears tune plays in the background and produces a can of Buzz Cola at the end of her small dance, parodying the Pepsi advertising done by Spears in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

There is a "Buzz Cola with Lemon" version of the product, with the slogan "damn, that's a lemony cola". In addition, in a episode, there was an old ad for Buzz Cola, stating that it has the "rejuvenating power of cocaine" in it. In the video game The Simpsons: Hit & Run, aliens Kang and Kodos use a "new and improved" Buzz Cola formula to brainwash the citizens of Springfield into performing stupid stunts for their reality TV show, Foolish Earthlings, they dump it into the town's water supply, which reanimates the dead and creates zombies. In July 2007, 7-Eleven rebranded some stores to look like Kwik-E-Marts in select cities to promote The Simpsons Movie. Real cans of Buzz Cola were available at those locations, as well as most other 7-Elevens throughout the United States and Canada; the soda in these cans was produced by the Cott Corporation, which makes RC Cola outside the United States. Buzz Cola first appeared in the 1984 movie Surf II. With its loud-mouthed corporate spokesperson Duffman, Duff Beer is a parody of stereotypical American beer: cheap, mass-produced, poor-quality and advertised.

It sold in all the bars of Springfield. Its slogan is "Can't get enough of that wonderful Duff"; the chief competitor of Duff Beer is Fudd Beer, intentionally spelled with a parallel swapping of the consonants. Homer became aware of Fudd Beer, it was revealed to be considered popular in Springfield's rival town of Shelbyville. Moe said he thought it had been banned "after all those hillbillies went blind", suggesting methanol poisoning. Lion Nathan, an Australian brewery, started to brew their own ‘Duff’ in the mid-1990s. 20th Century Fox sued, only a few cans were produced. In the process, the beer became a collectors’ item, with one case selling for $US13,000. Duff Beer was not sold at 7-Eleven because the promoters wanted to have "good, responsible fun." However, a Duff Energy Drink was released in place of the Duff Beer. Krusty-O's is a brand of breakfast cereal endorsed by Krusty the Clown which prominently features his likeness on the box; the real KrustyO's, sold by 7 Eleven, were produced by the Malt-O-Meal corporation.

Krusty-Brand Cereal is the catalyst for the episode "'Round Springfield", when Bart swallows a "jagged metal Krusty-O" included in the box as a premium and is sent to the hospital. In the episode when Krusty holds a press conference to show that swallowing the jagged metal Krusty-O is not dangerous, he begins to gag before he is informed he swallowed a "regular" Krusty-O, which he claims must be "poison". At the end of the episode, another box of Krusty-O's is shown with the promotion: "Flesh-Eating Bacteria In Every Box!". The current cost of a box of frosty Krusty-O's is $6.66 according to the cash register in the opening credits of season 16. Radioactive Man is within the show a long-running superhero comic book series featuring Radioactive Man and his sidekick, Fallout Boy. According to one episode, there are 1,000 issues of the comic book. In the real world, Bongo Comics has produced a smaller number of issues of Radioactive Man. Radioactive Man is one of the four'premiere' series released by Bongo Comics in late 1993.

The series has been released in two volumes, an early run from 1993–1994, the current run, published since 2000. Smaller Radioactive Man stories have been published in Simpsons Comics; as a tie-in promotion of The Simpsons Movie a special "Radioactive Man Comic Book Edition #711" was sold at 7-Elevens as part of t
