Johann Carl Otto Ribbeck, was a German classical scholar. His works are confined to criticisms of Latin poetry and to classical character sketches, he was born at Erfurt in Saxony. In early life he went to Berlin, where he studied under Karl Lachmann, Franz Bopp and August Böckh, from there to Bonn where he was a close student of the methods of Friedrich Gottlieb Welcker and Friedrich Ritschl. Having received his degree in Berlin and traveled for a year through Italy, in 1853 he returned to Berlin, where he entered Böckh's school, he taught at Elberfeld and Bern. Having held professorial appointments at Kiel and Heidelberg, he succeeded Ritschl in the chair of classical philology at Leipzig, where he died. Ribbeck was the author of several standard works on the poets and poetry of Rome, the most important of which are the following: Geschichte der römischen Dichtung; as a textual critic he was distinguished by considerable rashness, never hesitated to alter, rearrange or reject as spurious what failed to reach his standard of excellence.
These tendencies are strikingly shown in his editions of the Epistles and Ars Poetica of Horace, the Satires of Juvenal and in the supplementary essay Der echte und unechte Juvenal. In years, however, he became much more conservative, his edition of Virgil, although only critical, is a work of great erudition the prolegomena. His biography of Ritschl is one of the best works of its kind; the influence of Ritschl may be seen in Ribbeck's critical edition of the Miles Gioriosus of Plautus, Beiträge zur Lehre von den lateinischen Partikeln, a work of much promise, which causes regret that he did not publish further results of his studies in that direction. His miscellaneous Reden und Vorträge were published after his death, he took great interest in the monumental Thesaurus Linguae Latinae, it was chiefly owing to his efforts that the government of Saxony was induced to assist its production by a considerable subsidy. Classical character sketches include Alazon and Agrockos. Emma Ribbeck, ed. Otto Ribbeck, ein Bild seines Lebens aus seinen Briefen 1846-1898.

Giove is a comune in the province of Terni. The first reference in a historical document which mentions the Castel di Juvo, including its location overlooking the Tiber Valley, dates to 1191; the castle was part of lands fought over by the lords of the Roman Catholic Church. In 1481 Pope Sixtus IV gave the fief of to Lucrezia Appiani of Aragon, widow of Pino III Ordelaffi; the castle and lands are purchased by the Farnese family in 1514. They sell the fief of Giove for 65,000 scudi to the Mattei brothers Asdrubale. In 1643 Pope Urban VIII issued a papal bull recognising Giove as a Duchy of the Mattei, thus making Girolamo Mattei, Duca di Giove; the arrival of Napoleon's troops in the territory in 1796, led to Giove becoming part of the Trasimeno department, directly dependent on the imperial government of France. After the fall of Napoleon, Giove returned to the Papal States and the House of Mattei, it was annexed to the newly formed Kingdom of Italy in 1860
Women's Professional Soccer was the top level professional women's soccer league in the United States. It began play on March 29, 2009; the league was composed of seven teams for its first two seasons and fielded six teams for the 2011 season, with continued plans for future expansion. The WPS was the highest level in the United States soccer pyramid for the women's game. On January 30, 2012, the league announced suspension of the 2012 season, citing several internal organization struggles as the primary cause; some of these issues included an ongoing legal battle with magicJack owner Dan Borislow and the lack of resources invested into the league. On May 18, 2012 WPS announced the league folded and would not return in 2013. After the WPS folded, the National Women's Soccer League formed in 2013 and took WPS's place as the top professional women's soccer league. After the folding of Women's United Soccer Association, which played its third and final full season in 2003, WUSA Reorganization Committee was formed in September of that year.
The committee led to the founding in November 2004 of the non-profit organization, Women's Soccer Initiative, Inc. whose stated goal was "promoting and supporting all aspects of women's soccer in the United States", including the founding of a new professional league. Attempts to relaunch WUSA in full fell through in 2004 and 2005. In June 2006, WSII announced the relaunch of the league for the 2008 season. In December 2006, the organization announced that it reached an agreement with six owner-operators for teams based in Chicago, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Washington, DC, a then-unnamed city. Boston and New York/New Jersey were announced as other markets to have teams. In September 2007, the launch was pushed back from Spring of 2008 to 2009 to avoid clashing with 2007 Women's World Cup and the 2008 Olympic Games and to ensure that all of the teams were prepared for long-term operations. On May 27, 2008, the league announced that it would expand to Philadelphia for the 2010 season, with the franchise sharing facilities with MLS's Philadelphia Union.
Despite being the eighth named team, the league still considered adding an eighth team to play in the league's inaugural season. An eighth team for the inaugural season was tentatively announced as being located in San Diego, was finalized later. Still, despite the extra time given to the original five cities for preparations, the Dallas franchise did not materialize, citing stadium issues, thus the league began with seven teams. The new name of the league, Women's Professional Soccer, was announced on January 17, 2008, along with the logo, which featured the silhouette of retired player Mia Hamm. Player allocation began on September 16, 2008, after the Beijing Olympics in August, when WPS announced the allocation of 21 US national team players, three players to each of the seven teams that began play in the 2009 season. Most players were matched with teams they had some previous connection to, such as hometown, college, WUSA, or W-League affiliation. All of the allocated Americans played in the 2009 season except for Kate Markgraf, pregnant at the start of the season.
A week the league held the 2008 WPS International Draft, in which the seven teams selected four international players each. Four of the first five selections, first pick Formiga, Marta and Cristiane were Brazilian, a total of 10 Brazilian players were selected. England's Kelly Smith and Japan's Homare Sawa, Australia's Sarah Walsh rounded out the first round; the draft order was based on a weighted ranking determined by a vote of league coaches following the U. S. women's national team allocation. A general draft was held in October, followed by a combine for college seniors and undrafted players in December, a post-combine draft in January, local tryouts by individual teams in February. Before the season began, WPS was only able to secure two sponsors, most teams did not advertise much or get their rosters finalized until late in the preseason. During the season, though, WPS secured several more sponsors, WPS announced the expansion to Atlanta as the ninth team for next season. WPS's inaugural game was played to a crowd of over 14,000 fans at the Home Depot Center as the hosts Los Angeles Sol beat the Washington Freedom 2–0.
The first season saw several issues occur, including an uneven schedule due to the odd number of teams, several season-ending injuries, two major trades, decisions from the WPS disciplinary committee and commissioner, a Cinderella-run to the championship title. Most teams considered the first season a moderate success, despite many losing more money than planned; this success/optimism did not extend to the Sol, though, as after AEG failed to sell the team it was announced that the Sol would be disbanding. As AEG had given the Sol back to the league, a dispersal draft was held to distribute the players to the remaining eight teams; this was not the case when the Saint Louis Athletica and unexpectedly ran into financial problems and folded mid-May. The league schedule had to be re-done, all of Athletica's players became free agents. Most were signed by the Atlanta Beat, who had only earned one point until and finished the season at the bottom of the table; the other expansion franchise, the Philadelphia Independence fared much better, finishing third on the season and losing the WPS Final to the dominant FC Gold Pride.
Around the same time, WPS announced the addition of a western New York franchise for the 2011 season, spawni
Audubon Place is a gated street in New Orleans, adjacent to Tulane University, across St. Charles Avenue from Audubon Park, it was developed starting in the 1890s as an exclusive luxury development where only homes above a certain size and price could be constructed. As of 2009, Audubon Place homes cost around US $5 million. A guardhouse sits at the entrance to the street, with entrance restricted to those on a pre-approved list. Following the 2005 Hurricane Katrina-related levee breach, Blackwater security personnel were helicoptered to Audubon Place to protect property. Audubon Place is across from Audubon Park; the street lies within the 70118 ZIP code. Among recent residents of Audubon Place was Tom Benson, who owned the city's NFL and NBA teams, the Saints and Pelicans, when he died in 2018; the president of Tulane University lives on the street in a mansion donated to the university by Sam Zemurray, one-time head of United Fruit, predecessor to today's Chiquita. Audubon Place is not to be confused with Audubon Street or Audubon Boulevard, both of which are in the neighborhood surrounding Tulane University and Audubon Park.
