Atlantic Division (NHL)

The National Hockey League has used the name Atlantic Division for two distinct groups of teams. The original Atlantic Division, the predecessor of, the Patrick Division, was formed in 1993 as part of the Eastern Conference in a league realignment; as part of a 2013 realignment, the entirety of the former Atlantic Division was realigned into the Metropolitan Division. The Atlantic Division name was assigned to a new division comprising the entirety of the former Northeast Division plus the Florida Panthers and the Tampa Bay Lightning from the now-dissolved Southeast Division, the Detroit Red Wings, who moved from the Central Division of the Western Conference.

NHL History

Shirakumo-class destroyer

The Shirakumo-class destroyers was a class of two torpedo boat destroyers of the Imperial Japanese Navy. The Shirakumo-class destroyers were ordered under the 1900 fiscal budget as a follow-on to the earlier Murakumo class. Both were ordered from the yard of John I. Thornycroft & Company in Chiswick, England. Identical to the previous Murakumo class, the Shirakumo class was larger in displacement with a more powerful engine; the main difference externally between the vessels was in the design of their rudders. With the previous class, the rudder was semi-balanced, had a portion exposed above the waterline; this made the vessel vulnerable to disablement by stray gunfire. The design of the Shirakumo-class destroyers was similar to that of the two-stack torpedo boat destroyers produced by Thornycroft for the Royal Navy. Both vessels had a flush deck design with a distinctive "turtleback" forecastle, intended to clear water from the bow during high speed navigation, but was poorly designed for high waves or bad weather.

The bridge and forward gun platform were raised above the bow, resulting in a wet conning position. More than half of the small hull was occupied by the engine room. With fuel and weaponry, there was little space left for crew quarters. All were powered by triple expansion steam engines for 7,000 shp and had coal-fired water-tube boilers. Armament was one QF 12 pounder 12 cwt gun on a bandstand on the forecastle, five QF 6 pounder Hotchkiss and 2 single tubes for 18-inch torpedoes. Both Shirakumo-class destroyers arrived in Japan in time to be used in combat service during the Russo-Japanese War of 1904–1905 and were assigned to the 4th Destroyer Squadron under Admiral Dewa Shigeto. Both played an distinguished role in the crucial Battle of Tsushima. On 28 August 1912, both vessels were re-classified as third-class destroyers and were removed from front line combat service, they were converted to auxiliary minesweepers on 1 April 1922, but were used for only a year until converted to unarmed utility vessels.

Lake Island (British Columbia)

Lake Island is an island on the coast of the Canadian province of British Columbia. It is located between Mathieson Channel and Lady Trutch Passage, is flanked by Dowager Island, Lady Douglas Island, a long finger shaped peninsula of the Canadian mainland to the east. Lake Island is not a lake island, as it is in an inlet of the Pacific Ocean, lies only some 6 kilometres from the open sea. Lake Island is part of a volcanic area called the Milbanke Sound Group and includes monogenetic cinder cones. Basaltic tuff breccias on Lake Island originated from Helmet Peak.
