The 45th Primetime Emmy Awards were held on Sunday, September 19, 1993. The ceremony was hosted by Angela Lansbury. MTV received its first major nomination at this ceremony. For its fourth season, Seinfeld won its first, only, Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series. Cheers was once again nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series, it was nominated for all eleven years that it won four times. This tied the record set by M*A*S*H which went 11/11, but only won once. On the drama side, Northern Exposure was the defending champion and was seen as the favorite coming into the ceremony being the most nominated show with 11 major nominations—but in a major upset, Picket Fences took home Outstanding Drama Series. Northern Exposure set the dubious record for the largest shutout of all time, as it lost all 11 major nominations. Both of these records were broken by Mad Men in 2012. With David Clennon's win for Outstanding Comedy Guest Actor, this was the first time HBO won an Acting Emmy.

Robert H. McCarter

Robert Harris McCarter was an American lawyer who served as the Attorney General of New Jersey from 1903 until 1908, succeeding his brother Thomas N. McCarter. McCarter was born in New Jersey, in 1859 to Thomas Nesbitt and Mary Louisa McCarter, he attended the Pingry School and Newark Academy before entering Princeton University, where he graduated in 1879. He studied at Columbia Law School, receiving his diploma in 1882, was admitted to the New Jersey bar that same year. McCarter and his brother joined the law firm of their father, established in Newton in 1845 and moved to Newark twenty years later; the firm was known as McCarter & Keen until the two younger McCarters, along with their brother-in-law Edwin B. Williamson, became partners, after which time it was known as McCarter, Williamson & McCarter. McCarter's brother Thomas served Attorney General of New Jersey from 1902 to 1903, resigning to become president of the Public Service Corporation of New Jersey. Governor Franklin Murphy nominated McCarter to take his brother's spot, he was confirmed as Attorney General on May 5, 1903.

He served for a term of five years. After his tenure as Attorney General he returned to his Newark law practice, which became known as McCarter & English in 1906 after the death of Edwin B. Williamson and the promotion of Conover English to partner. Though he took on corporate clients, he served as the defense attorney for one of New Jersey's most sensational criminal cases, the Hall-Mills Murder trial of 1926. Edward Wheeler Hall, a New Brunswick Episcopal priest, Eleanor Reinhardt Mills, had been murdered, McCarter defended the priest's wife and her brothers at trial, he managed to win acquittals for all three defendants. McCarter served as president of the New Jersey State Bar Association, he was counsel to Lester H. Clee in his 1937 campaign for Governor of New Jersey against A. Harry Moore. In 1938 he served as counsel for a committee investigating election irregularities in Hudson County at a time when political boss Frank Hague held a tight grip on the county's electoral process. McCarter died of a heart attack in 1941 at his home in Rumson at the age of 82

Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System

The Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense System is a United States Department of Defense Missile Defense Agency program developed to provide missile defense against short to intermediate-range ballistic missiles. It is part of the United States national missile defense strategy. Aegis BMD is designed to intercept ballistic missiles post-boost phase and prior to reentry, it enables warships to shoot down enemy ballistic missiles by expanding the Aegis Combat System with the addition of the AN/SPY-1 radar and Standard missile technologies. Aegis BMD-equipped vessels can transmit their target detection information to the Ground-Based Midcourse Defense system and, if needed, engage potential threats using the RIM-161 Standard Missile 3 mid-course interceptors and the RIM-156 Standard Missile 2 Extended Range Block IV or RIM-174 Standard Extended Range Active Missile terminal-phase interceptors; the Aegis BMD system is not designed, at least at present, to intercept longer-ranged intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Detection and tracking data collected by the Aegis BMD system's radar, might be passed to other U. S. BMD systems that are designed to intercept ICBMs, which might support intercepts of ICBMs that are conducted by those other U. S. BMD systems; the current system uses the Raytheon Standard missile. Notable subcontractors and technical experts include Boeing Defense, Space & Security, Alliant Techsystems, Engility, Naval Surface Warfare Center, SPAWAR Systems Center, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln Laboratory; the current effort to deploy Aegis ballistic missile defense was begun during the mid-1980s as part of President Ronald Reagan's Strategic Defense Initiative. The SDI plan was for a space-based railgun system. However, due to technological constraints, the system was transformed into a surface-based system known as the Lightweight Exo-Atmospheric Projectile; the original testing of the LEAP was done as part of the Army LEAP program.

SDIO worked with the Navy to test the LEAP on the Terrier missile. The Terrier LEAP demonstration program lasted from 1991 into 1995 and consisted of four flight tests. Two of these were intercept tests in early 1995. During the late 1990s, the U. S. Navy was tasked to provide a weapon system for exploratory testing of LEAP; this phase was designated the Aegis LEAP Intercept program. The program was for two successful intercepts in five attempts. On June 13, 2002, the second successful ALI intercept occurred during the FM-3 flight test mission. Initial Aegis BMD success may have contributed to President George W. Bush's decision to deploy an emergency ballistic missile capability by late 2004. Upon the completion of the ALI program, Aegis BMD was transitioned to the production phase; the first Block I production SM-3 was delivered in October 2004, the Aegis 3.0 update was delivered in 2005. This system was given major new importance by President Obama in September 2009, when he announced plans to scrap the plans for a missile defense site in Poland, in favor of missile defense systems located on U.

S. Navy warships. On 18 September 2009, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin welcomed Obama's plans for missile defense which may include stationing American Aegis armed warships in the Black Sea, as these are to be less effective against Russia's missile attacks. In 2009 several U. S. Navy ships were fitted with SM-3 missiles to serve this function, which complements the Patriot systems deployed by American units. Warships of Japan and Australia have been given weapons and technology to enable them to participate as well. Current Aegis BMD hardware includes the SM-3 Block-1a missile and other improvements to the Aegis Weapons System. Future development of the Aegis BMD system includes Launch on Remote capability, upgraded SM-3 avionics and hardware, an upgraded Aegis Weapon System. In 2012 Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense will merge with Aegis Open Architecture and deliver the benefits of both platforms; the Launch on Remote capability involves the use of off-board sensors, such as the Space Tracking and Surveillance System to provide a targeting solution for a SM-3 launch.

The variations of the Aegis BMD system in service are the 3.6.1 version and the 4.0.1 version. The MDA and the US Navy plan to deploy more advanced versions, such as the 5.0, 5.1 and 5.2, in the future. The improved versions will be equipped with advanced processors and software, as well as upgraded variants of the SM-3 interceptor missile. BMD capable ships can have their BMD capabilities upgraded from earlier versions to versions. A land-based component, Aegis Ashore is being developed; the first site to be declared operational was in Romania in 2016. This consists of equipment used by the Navy being deployed in land-based facilities; this includes a battery of Standard Missile-3s. The Obama administration's plans call for two sites: the first in Romania at Deveselu, opened in May 2015 and the second in Poland in 2018. In 2020, both will get the latest versions of the Aegis BMD software and the latest version of the SM-3; some radar facilities will be placed in Turkey at a future date. On 21 May 2014, U.

S. DOD headlined, "Standard Missile Completes First Test Launch from Aegis Ashore Test Site," and reported that: "The Missile Defense Agency, the U. S. Navy, sailors at the Aegis

Neogurelca himachala, the crisp-banded hawkmoth, is a moth of the family Sphingidae. It is known from Nepal, north-eastern India, south-western and eastern China, northern Thailand, North Korea, South Korea and Japan; the wingspan is about 34–48 mm. Adults do not fly much and are active for only a few hours just after day-break and/or at dusk, it is a noisy flyer which can manoeuvre with precision in and out of branches and undergrowth, but which will dart off at high speed if disturbed. It rests on the bark of trees. Adults of ssp. sangaica are attracted to the flowers of Duranta erecta in Hong Kong The larvae have been recorded feeding on Paederia foetida in India and Paederia species in China Neogurelca himachala himachala Neogurelca himachala sangaica Butler, 1876

Salvage Squad

Salvage Squad is a British television programme, in which the "Salvage Squad" faced the challenge of restoring an item of classic machinery. The task was against a tight deadline, such as a public unveiling at a vehicle rally. In addition to vintage cars, railway engines and aircraft, the challenges included the resurrection of a Hampshire water mill and a set of fairground gallopers; the "Salvage Squad" comprised a presenter, either Lee Hurst or Suggs, a team of restoration experts: Claire Barratt, Axel Cleghorn and Jerry Thurston. The team was supplemented on each job by appropriate specialist craftsmen; the role of the presenter was to narrate progress and to research the history of the item being restored, although they were sometimes roped into the restoration work itself. The programmes included archive footage of similar machines in action, explanations of the characteristic technologies used, descriptions of the restoration techniques, interviews with people associated with the items during their commercial life.

Produced by Wall to Wall, the three series of one-hour programmes were broadcast on Channel 4 during 2002, 2003 and 2004 and have since been re-broadcast on the Discovery Channel, the History Channel and Quest. First broadcast in 2002. Salvage Squad: Lee Hurst, Claire Barratt, Axel Cleghorn, Jerry Thurston Steamroller Centurion Tank Bristol 407 Gyroplane Steamboat Fire engine Alvis Stalwart or'Stolly' Amphibious military supply truck, dating from 1968; the main aim of this project was to restore the Stolly's amphibious capabilities. This involved seeking out a set of'swimming gear' – removed from these vehicles by the Army to save weight – and to install new seals on the huge cargo doors; the final test was to drive the vehicle down a slipway at 20 mph into a river, to see if it would float. For all concerned, it did. Racing car Lola T142, Formula 5000, racing car dating from 1969: the winning car from the 1969 Madrid Grand Prix.

Salvage Squad: Suggs, Claire Barratt This series had a distinctly different'feel' to the first two. Rather than having a team of three to do the bulk of the restoration, this series featured just Claire coordinating the work undertaken by a number of specialist restorers herself having a go at some of the handiwork. In addition to the usual ten restoration candidates, this series included two're-visits' to projects from the second series that had not been successful first time round.
