1960 VFL Grand Final

The 1960 VFL Grand Final was an Australian rules football game contested between the Melbourne Football Club and Collingwood Football Club, held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Melbourne on 24 September 1960 in wet conditions due to persistent rain during the previous week. It was the 64th annual Grand Final of the Victorian Football League, staged to determine the premiers for the 1960 VFL season; the match, attended despite the conditions by 97,457 spectators, was won by Melbourne by a margin of 48 points, marking that club's 11th premiership victory. Collingwood's score stands as the lowest it has kicked since the sixth round of 1900, its sixth-lowest ever, their four scoring shots is the second-lowest by any team since the tenth round of 1908, with only Fitzroy against Footscray in 1953 having fewer. The two goals the Magpies did score were regarded as lucky. One was from a long kick that just made the distance, the other was after an easy mark by Melbourne full back Tassie Johnson was dropped in the goal square.

This was Melbourne's seventh premiership appearance in successive seasons, having won all these contests except the 1954 VFL Grand Final and 1958 VFL Grand Final

The Squatter's Daughter (1910 film)

The Squatter's Daughter is a 1910 Australian silent film based on the popular play by Bert Bailey and Edmund Duggan. The plot concerns the rivalry between two neighboring sheep stations and Waratah; this version includes the subplot about the bushranger Ben Hall, not used when the play was adapted again in 1933. Olive Wilton as Violet Enderby Bert Bailey as Archie McPherson Edmund Duggan as Ben Hall J. H. Nunn as James Harrington Rutland Beckett as Dudley Harrington George Cross as Tom Bathurst George Mackenzie as Nick Harvey Temple Harrison as Nulla Nulla Edwin Campbell as Billy Eugenie Duggan Filming took place in June 1910 with cast from the acting company of theatre producer William Anderson at the Kings Theatre Melbourne, many of whom had just appeared in The Man from Outback by Bailey and Duggan. Theatre star Olive Wilton played the lead role, with Duggan in support. One of her leading men, George Cross became a casting director for Cinesound Productions. Shooting took place in Ivanhoe and other surrounding districts of Melbourne outdoors interior scenes.

"Under these circumstances brilliant sunshine was the main factor to be wooed", recalled Olive Wilton. "It seemed impossible to acquire sufficient light without a constant battle against high wind, which made these interior scenes a nightmare, with hair and clothes blowing in all directions."However the fact it was a movie allowed the demonstration of scenes only discussed in the play, such as Nulla escaping the bushranger's cave. Other sequences praised by reviewers included the abduction of the squatter's daughter, the pursuit by Ben Hall and his gang, Ben Hall's last stand, the dash through the cataract, the farm house rope bridge, the waterfall, the shearing match, a champion stock whip artist, it was advertised as being the most expensive movie made in Australia to that date, but this is unlikely. Screenings were accompanied by a lecture; the movie was a popular success at the box office, breaking records in Sydney and Melbourne, enjoying long runs throughout the country. It achieved a cinema release in one of the first Australian films to do so.

Bert Bailey and Ken G. Hall tried to track down a copy of the movie when Hall directed a version in 1933 but was unsuccessful. No known copies of it exist today, it is considered a lost film; the Perth Sunday Times called the film a "motion picture atrocity."

National Geothermal Data System

The National Geothermal Data System is an American distributed data network that collects and provides public access to digital geothermal exploration and development information. Data includes borehole temperature measurements, geothermal gradients, active faults, geochemical analyses. NGDS was funded by the United States Department of Energy Geothermal Technologies Program, as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009; the National Geothermal Data System makes use of the large collection of hard copy documents stored in state geological survey archives. These documents include maps, field notes and well logs relevant to geothermal exploration and development; some of the information was gathered for use by the oil industry. NGDS facilitates the digitization of this data, ensures that data from various sources is stored in a compatible format to facilitate standardized search terms and geospatial analyses. Participating agencies maintain control of data they contribute. Once digitized, the NGDS provides free public access to the data by means of a distributed network of online databases, provide the public with free and open-source software with which to search and view the data.

NGDS primary contributors include the United States Geological Survey, Southern Methodist University, the Association of American State Geologists. Most agencies that contribute data to NGDS host their data on their own servers. NGDS hub states include Arizona, Illinois and Nevada. Participating agencies submit metadata records to a central web-accessible catalog, describing the data, contributed to NGDS. Both NGDS data and the NGDS catalog can be accessed by common web browsers and web applications. NGDS data can be accessed by geographic information system software applications including ArcGIS, UDig, QGIS, GvSIG; the NGDS Portal The USGS goethermal landing page The Southern Methodist University Geothermal Lab
