Stremonius or Saint Austremonius or Saint Stramonius or Austromoine, the "apostle of Auvergne," was the first bishop of Clermont. During the consulship of the Emperor Decius and Vettius Gratus, according to Gregory of Tours, who calls him Stremonius, Pope Fabian sent out seven bishops from Rome to Gaul to preach the Gospel: Gatien to Tours, Trophimus to Arles, Paul to Narbonne, Saturninus to Toulouse, Denis to Paris, Martial to Limoges, Austromoine to Clermont. At Clermont he is said to have converted the senator Cassius of Clermont and the pagan priest Victorinus, to have sent St. Serenus to Thiers, St. Marius to Salers, Antoninus into other parts of Auvergne, to have been beheaded. A tradition states that Saint Austremonius ordered Nectarius of Auvergne to Christianize the plain of Limagne in the Massif Central, his veneration was localized, but at Clermont he was moved back in time, to the 1st century AD, along with others of the Apostles to Gaul, such as Saint Martial, to become one of the "seventy-two Disciples of Christ", was claimed to have been a converted Jew who came with St. Peter from Palestine to Rome and subsequently became the Apostle of Auvergne, as well as of Berry and Nivernais.

This local view found its origin in a life of St. Austremonius written in the 10th century in the Abbey of Mozac, where the body of the saint was transferred in 761; the Vita was rewritten and amplified by the monks of Issoire, who retained as a relic the saint's head. There is a further elaborated Vita of the late 11th century, with new episodes, made at the same time as a forgery of a charter of Pippin; the tomb was opened in 1197. Gregory of Tours, born in Auvergne in 544 and was well versed in the history of that country, looks upon Austremonius as one of the seven envoys who, about 250, evangelized Gaul; the possibility that the major dioceses of Gaul each needed an apostolic figure, that where the historical details had lapsed one had to be supplied, to serve local pride, should not be dismissed.

Ulmus × intermedia

Ulmus × intermedia Elowsky is a natural hybrid elm occurring across Nebraska and several other Midwestern states, derived from the crossing of Ulmus rubra and Ulmus pumila. As Red Elm U. rubra is far less fertile, susceptible to Dutch elm disease, it could be hybridized out of existence by U. × intermedia. The hybrid was first reported from the wild in the Chicago region in 1950 and was provisionally named U. × notha Wilhelm & Ware in 1994. The horticulture industry made a number of artificial crosses of the two species, such as'Coolshade' and'Fremont', in an attempt to create ornamental trees resistant to DED. Ulmus × intermedia is different from both parental species, except in biometrics such as leaf length to width ratios, number of teeth, petiole length, pollen size; the leaves are 4.5–12 × 2.5–6 cm, petiole 0.3 × 1.2 cm, ovate to lanceolate, apex acuminate to acute, base oblique. The samarae are 11.5–21.0 × 10.0–20.0 mm, cream to white. Atypically, fertility of the hybrid seed is high in excess of 90%, while Collins found in artificial hybridization no reduction of fertility in the F1 or F2 generations.

Specimens of unnamed Ulmus × intermedia stand in Morton Arboretum, received as Ulmus pumila from North Platte Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Nebraska.

Social media in the 2016 United States presidential election

Social media played a predominant role in shaping the course of major events leading up to, after the United States presidential election of 2016. It enabled people to have a greater interaction with the political landscape and news surrounding the candidates involved. Unlike traditional news platforms, such as newspapers and magazines, social media gave people the ability to share and post below a candidate's advertisement, news surrounding the candidates, or articles regarding the policy of the candidates; this accessibility, in turn, would have a great influence on the events that led to its outcome. Candidates would use multiple social media accounts, such as YouTube, Twitter and Snapchat. Depending on the digital architecture of each platform, candidates would post, create support videos, link to news articles, challenge other candidates via fact-checking and response. In turn, users could like, or comment on these actions, furthering the candidates outreach. By doing so, candidates and users both would change peoples views on a specific issue.

With candidates using different combinations of these actions, they built a unique style of communication with the public, influencing the portrayal of themselves in the news, in their own accounts. These accounts would help build electoral coalitions, which identify voters and, in turn, raise money; as a result, they aided in voter mobilization and electoral impact. Researchers from Stanford have found that 62% of U. S. adults get their news on social media and that people are more to believe in news favoring their choice of candidate if they have ideologically segregated social networks. Throughout the campaign, candidates have debated over immigrational, economic, criminal, educational and electoral policy. Using social media, they expanded their base further beyond the broadcast debates, both in the Republican and Democratic primary, in the general election. In one instance, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton feuded over economic and educational policy in a series of tweets.

In another, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump feuded over Obama's endorsement of Hillary Clinton, the deletion of Twitter accounts. Overall and many other events on social media contributed to the outcome of the 2016 election by endorsement, controversy, or other exhibits providing discussion for political discourse; as the campaign began, analysts assumed that, because of the increased reach and capacity of social media sites of all kinds since the last election cycle, social media would be used in powerful new ways. The Wall Street Journal predicted that the use of campaign advertisements targeted at individuals using newly available data would be among the more notable innovations; the political newspaper, The Hill, concluded not only that "ocial media's influence in this presidential election is stronger than it has been," but that it "will shape campaigns for years to come." According to The Wall Street Journal, the "traditional media" and the Democratic and Republican parties have lost "dominance" of public opinion to the "digital revolution."Frank Speiser, co-founder of SocialFlow, said, "This is the first true social media election."

He added that before the 2016 presidential primaries, social media were a mere "auxiliary method of communication," but in this new era, "folks on social media to act on your behalf by just sharing it around. You don't have to buy access to reach millions of people anymore." According to Republican political strategist Patrick Ruffini, in the 2012 election cycle, candidates would make short statements, re-tweet or thank followers. The candidates were able to use social media to get free advertising from their supporters. Attendees of political rallies would take photos with the candidates that would be shared on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook; this generates more visibility for the candidate at no cost to them. The Guardian compared Internet memes to political cartoons, arguing, "For the first time in a US election cycle, community-generated memes have grown to play a significant role in political discourse, similar to the classic printed cartoon." While an Internet meme is unlikely to destroy a political career, lots of memes targeting a candidate might.

According to the Pew Research Center, social media is playing a pivotal role in the presidential election. 44% of the Americans have admitted to getting their information regarding the 2016 from social media. The Pew research Center posts the finding of public's responses to three presidential candidates- Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders, it finds that while these three candidates post at the same frequency, Trump receives the most responses, with one example being Trump becoming discussed across Twitter and the media when he announced his proposed Muslim ban. Unlike other candidates, Trump's Twitter and Facebook posts link to news media rather than the campaign site to focus more on media appearance. Based on the data gathered by the Pew Research Center, 78% of his retweets involves the general public; the Trump presidential campaign benefited from large numbers of supporters who were active on social media from the beginning of the campaign. In the first Republican Presidential debate, held on August 6, 2015, the moderator asked candidate Jeb Bush if he stood by a statement made the previous April that illegal entry into the U.

S. by undocumented migrants is "an act of love." Bush replied that he did and the Trump campaign posted his comment as part of a video showing mugshots of illegal immigrants who committed violent cr
