Blood Red Shoes
Blood Red Shoes are an alternative rock duo from Brighton, England consisting of Laura-Mary Carter and Steven Ansell. They have released five full-length albums, Box of Secrets, Fire Like This, In Time to Voices, Blood Red Shoes and Get Tragic as well as several EPs and a number of singles. In 2014, they founded Jazz Life. Blood Red Shoes formed in late 2004, after Steven Ansell and Laura-Mary Carter's previous bands broke up and they decided to "have a jam". In an interview in Berlin, Carter explained that the band's name was taken from a Ginger Rogers/Fred Astaire musical, in which Ginger Rogers had turned a pair of white dancing shoes red with blood due to the amount of dancing she had done practicing for the role, they released their debut single "Victory for the Magpie" on 18 July 2005, followed by the double A-side "Stitch Me Back / Meet Me at Eight" "A. D. H. D", both released on Try Harder, "You Bring Me Down" on Drowned in Sound / Abeano/XL in 2006. After playing over 300 live shows around the UK, they were signed to V2 in April 2007 with whom they released the singles "It's Getting Boring by the Sea" and "I Wish I Was Someone Better", as well as the singles compilation album I'll Be Your Eyes on 25 June 2007.
The band featured on both days of the 2007 Camden Crawl, playing the Purple Turtle and the Earl of Camden and were one of four bands to play the NME New Music Tour 2007, with The Little Ones, Pull Tiger Tail and The Rumble Strips. The summer of 2007 saw the band playing several festival spots, including T in the Park, the inaugural Underage Festival, the Electric Gardens festival, they supported a wide range of bands, such as Biffy Clyro, Maxïmo Park, Panic! at the Disco, Lightning Bolt, The Gossip, Siouxsie Sioux and Rage Against the Machine. Following the sale of V2 to Universal Music Group, the band's début album Box of Secrets was released on Mercury Records/Universal on 14 April 2008, it was leaked to private torrent trackers in November 2007, several months before its retail release date. The band have commented that although they have no issue with file sharing and downloading free music, having their début album become available outside of their control and without the intended artwork and lyric booklet was a disappointment.
Laura-Mary Carter from the band has designed the record sleeve for every release by the band. They played a nine-date tour of the UK, in support of the album, followed by dates across mainland Europe and Japan, they played major international festivals including Reading and Leeds, Summer Sonic, Pukkelpop and Melt!. After their autumn-winter tour of 2008, which covered over 12 countries, the band took a performance stop in the first months of 2009 to write songs for their next record, they began touring again in March 2009, introducing new songs at every gig, sometimes including unfinished songs or those without lyrics. They opened for Foals in Brighton in 2009 to road-test some new material by playing all new songs except for "It's Getting Boring by the Sea" and "This Is Not For You". On 17 May 2009, the band played All Tomorrow's Parties; the band recorded their second album with Mike Crossey at the Motor Museum studio in Liverpool. They contributed an instrumental track called "Carry Knots" on a compilation CD for Audioscope, in aid of the homeless charity Shelter, released in October 2009.
On 25 November 2009, the band made a new track, "Colours Fade", available to download from their website. Independent music webzine. Author Jamie Smith wrote: "It takes the tried and tested BRS formula and as they say, turns it up to eleven. It’s seven minutes long, it pretty much defines epic. It sounds HUGE."The album's first single "Light It Up" premiered on 5 January 2010 on Radio 1 by Huw Stephens filling in for Zane Lowe. The single was released on 22 February, one week before the release of their second album Fire Like This on 1 March 2010. Further singles "Don't Ask" and "Heartsink" were released in May and August, followed by a European and North American tour in October. In September 2010, the band recorded a few new songs which they hope to release as an EP. In 2010, the band's song "It's Getting Boring by the Sea" featured in the film Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. It is included on the film's official soundtrack and the band attended the film's UK premiere in London. Director Edgar Wright decided to include it after seeing them live.
The same song was featured in an episode of Misfits, plus in 2010 the song "When We Wake" was used in the TV show Huge and "Colours Fade" was used in CSI: NY in Season 8. The band spent most of 2011 writing new songs. After spending the summer playing various festivals, they played their last show of 2011 on 17 September and began recording the album a few weeks at The Motor Museum studio in Liverpool, again with Mike Crossey, who produced Box of Secrets and Fire Like This. Recording started on 18 October 2011. On 12 December 2011, the band revealed the first teaser from the album on their website, with a video from the studio, with 3 more videos to be revealed before the album's release. During early January 2012, the band recorded b-sides, bonus tracks and alternate versions of songs for the album's release. On 24 January 2012, the band's new single, "Cold" was premiered on BBC Radio 1 by Zane Lowe and their third album, In Time to Voices, was announced with a release date of 26 March 2012.
The album's first single, "Cold", is due to be released on 19 March. In a press release, Carter described the album: ”With this album we totally
A kill switch known as an emergency stop and as an emergency power off, is a safety mechanism used to shut off machinery in an emergency, when it cannot be shut down in the usual manner. Unlike a normal shut-down switch or shut-down procedure, which shuts down all systems in order and turns off the machine without damage, a kill switch is designed and configured to abort the operation as as possible and to be operated and quickly. Kill switches are designed to be noticeable to an untrained operator or a bystander. Most kill switches feature a mollyguard, a removable, protective barrier against accidental activation. Kill switches are features of mechanisms whose normal operation or foreseeable misuse might cause injury or death. A similar system called a dead man's switch, as its name suggests, is a device intended to stop a machine if the human operator becomes incapacitated, is a form of fail-safe, they are used in industrial applications and consumer applications. The switch in these cases is held by the user, turns off the machine if they let go.
Some riding lawnmowers have a kill switch in the seat which stops the engine and blade if the operator's weight is no longer on the seat. On railways, an emergency stop is a full application of the brakes in order to bring a train to a stop as as possible; this occurs either by a manual emergency stop activation, such as a button being pushed on the train to start the emergency stop, or on some trains automatically, when the train has passed a red signal or the driver has failed to respond to warnings to check that he/she is still alert, known as a dead man's switch. A similar mechanism is the watchdog timer. In large ships, an emergency stop button pulls the countershaft for the fuel pumps to the stop position, cutting off the fuel supply and stopping the engines. With a controllable-pitch propeller, the stop button may declutch the engine from the propeller. NASCAR requires all their stock cars to be equipped with a steering wheel-mounted kill switch, in case the accelerator pedal sticks and the driver needs to shut down the engine.
Kill switches are used on land vehicles as an anti-theft system and as an emergency power off. Such devices are placed in bait cars and configured so that observing police can trigger the switch remotely. A related concept is the dead man's switch, where the operator must be holding a button or lever any time the vehicle is operating. A common example of this is the kill switches used by boaters and jetskiers wherein a cord connects the kill switch to the operator, if the operator is thrown overboard in an accident, the cord will pull the switch and shut down the vessel's engine; this prevents it from becoming a runaway vessel that could impose a danger to other vessels or swimmers at sea, allows the operator to swim back to the vessel and re-board it without the risk of being injured by the boat's propeller. A similar device is featured on most lawnmowers: a lever on the handle blocks the engine's fuel supply and applies a brake to the blades as long as it is not held down. Monster Truck Racing Association requires all of their monster trucks to be equipped with kill switches, in case the monster truck loses control and the driver needs to shut off the engine.
Monster trucks' kill switches are tested before races. Early aviators using rotary engine-powered aircraft from the beginnings of their use in 1908, up through the end of World War I in 1918 had what could be called a reversed functionality version of the "dead man's switch" for cutting the ignition voltage to the spark plugs on such a power-plant, to give a degree of in-flight speed control for a rotary engine; this was called a "blip switch" or "coupe switch" and when not being pressed, allowed the high voltage from the engine's magnetos to operate the ignition with normal engine operation in flight — pressing the "blip switch" cut the flow of high voltage from the magnetos, stopping the combustion process in the cylinders. When such a "blip switch" was intermittently used on landing approach, this allowed a limited degree of engine speed control, as rotary engines did not have a conventional throttle in their carburettors to regulate engine speed, but only for governing the fuel-air ratio for start-up and full-speed operation.
On large industrial machines, an emergency stop button is located on the panel, in several other areas of the machine. An emergency stop is made wireless using a remote control; this provides a rapid means to disconnect the energy source of the device to protect workers. For fail-safe operation, the emergency stop button is a closed switch, which ensures that a broken wire will not prevent it from being activated, but may accidentally activate the emergency stop. In the European Union, most types of machinery are required to be equipped with an emergency stop according to the Directive 2006/42/EC. Exceptions apply for machinery in which an emergency stop would not lessen the risk as well as for portable hand-held/hand-guided machinery. A kill switch i
Brown recluse spider
The brown recluse, Loxosceles reclusa, Sicariidae is a recluse spider with a necrotic venom. Similar to other recluse spider bites, their bite sometimes requires medical attention; the brown recluse is one of three spiders with medically significant venom in North America. Brown recluse spiders are between 6 and 20 millimetres, but may grow larger. While light to medium brown, they range in color from whitish to dark brown or blackish gray; the cephalothorax and abdomen are not the same color. These spiders have markings on the dorsal side of their cephalothorax, with a black line coming from it that looks like a violin with the neck of the violin pointing to the rear of the spider, resulting in the nicknames fiddleback spider, brown fiddler, or violin spider; the violin pattern is not diagnostic. For definitive identification, it is imperative to examine the eyes. While most spiders have eight eyes, recluse spiders have six eyes arranged in pairs with one medial pair and two lateral pairs. Only a few other spiders have three pairs of eyes arranged in this way.
Recluses have no obvious coloration patterns on the abdomen or legs, the legs lack spines. The abdomen is covered with fine short hairs that, when viewed without magnification, give the appearance of soft fur; the leg joints may appear to be a lighter color. Adult brown recluse spiders live about one to two years; each female produces several egg sacs over a period of two to three months, from May to July, with fifty eggs in each sac. The eggs hatch in about one month; the spiderlings take about one year to grow to adulthood. The brown recluse spider is resilient and can tolerate up to six months of extreme drought and scarcity or absence of food. On one occasion, a brown recluse survived in controlled captivity for over five seasons without any food at all. A brown recluse's stance on a flat surface is with all legs radially extended; when alarmed it may lower its body, withdraw the forward two legs straight rearward into a defensive position, withdraw the rearmost pair of legs into a position for lunging forward, stand motionless with pedipalps raised.
The pedipalps in mature specimens are dark and quite prominent and are held horizontally forward. When threatened it flees to avoid a conflict, if detained may further avoid contact with quick horizontal rotating movements or resort to assuming a lifeless pose; the spider does not jump unless touched brusquely, then its avoidance movement is more of a horizontal lunge rather than a vaulting of itself off the surface. When running, the brown recluse does not leave a silk line behind, which would make it more tracked when it is being pursued. Movement at any speed is an evenly paced gait with legs extended; when missing a leg or two it appears to favor this same gait, although it may move and stand at rest with one leg withdrawn. During travel it stops and periodically when renewing its internal hydraulic blood pressure that, like most spiders, it requires to renew strength in its legs. Brown recluse spiders build asymmetrical webs that include a shelter consisting of disorderly thread, they build their webs in woodpiles and sheds, garages, plenum spaces and other places that are dry and undisturbed.
When dwelling in human residences they seem to favor cardboard because it mimics the rotting tree bark which they inhabit naturally. Human-recluse contact occurs when such isolated spaces are disturbed and the spider feels threatened. Unlike most web weavers, they leave these lairs at night to hunt. Males move around more; the range lies south of a line from southeastern Nebraska through southern Iowa and Indiana to southwestern Ohio. In the southern states, it is north to Kentucky. Despite rumors to the contrary, the brown recluse spider has not established itself in California or anywhere outside its native range; this directly contradicts numerous sensationalized media reports of bites occurring where these spiders are absent, such as a 2014 report from Thailand, where a man was claimed to have died from a brown recluse bite. Over the last century, occasional spiders have been intercepted in various locations where they have no known established populations. Note that the occurrence of brown recluses in a single building outside of the native range is not considered a successful colonization.
There are other species of the genus Loxosceles native to the southwestern part of the United States, including California, that may resemble the brown recluse, but interactions between humans and the recluse species in California and the region are rare because those species native ranges lie outside of dense human populations. The number of "false positive" reports based on misidentifications is considerable.
National Freight Corporation
The National Freight Corporation was a major British transport business between 1948 and 2000. It was listed on the London Stock Exchange and at one time, as NFC plc, was a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index; the company was established in 1948 as British Road Services. It was the road transport company formed by the nationalisation of Britain's road haulage industry, under the British Transport Commission, as a result of the Transport Act 1947. From 1963 the company was administered by the Transport Holding Company and had four main operating areas: British Road Services, BRS Parcels and Containerway & Roadferry. On 1 January 1969 it was renamed the National Freight Corporation. On the same date a 51% share in Freightliner was transferred from the British Railways Board; this was transferred back to the BRB on 1 August 1978. In 1980 the assets of the National Freight Corporation were transferred to the National Freight Company. In 1982, the company was sold to its employees as the National Freight Consortium in one of the first privatisations of state-owned industry.
The new company was first listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1989 and subsequently became NFC plc. BRS Parcels was rebranded as Roadline and was sold in a management buy-out as LYNX Express in 1997. NFC disposed of Pickfords in 1999 to Allied Van Lines. In 2000 the company merged with Ocean Group plc to form Exel plc. E. J. Gubbins. Managing Transport Operations. Kogan Page. ISBN 978-0-7494-3928-6
Brassia is a genus of orchids classified in the Oncidiinae subtribe. It is native to Mexico, Central America, the West Indies, northern South America, with one species extending into Florida; the genus was named after William Brass, a British botanist and illustrator, who collected plants in Africa under the supervision of Sir Joseph Banks. Its abbreviation in the horticultural trade is Brs. Brassia species and its popular hybrids are common in cultivation, are notable for the characteristic long and spreading tepals, which lend them the common name "spider orchid"; this epiphytic genus occurs in wet forests from sea level to altitudes under 1500 m, with the Peruvian Andes as its center of diversity. Occurrence is restricted to a certain area, but Brassia caudata can be found over the whole geographic area, they have large elliptic-oblong pseudobulbs with one or two leaves at the apex, unbranched many-flowered inflorescences with small floral bracts. The lip is not attached to the column; the pollinarium shows a narrow stipe.
There are foliaceous sheaths around the base, from which the inflorescence emerges. Brassia has a specific method for pollination: it uses entomophily: pollination by insects and in this case by female spider-hunter wasps of the genera Pepsis and Campsomeris. Mistaken by the mimicry of Brassia, the wasp stings the lip, while trying to grasp its prey without any success. By these movements the wasp comes into contact with the pollinarium, that sticks to its head. By flying to another Brassia flower, this flower gets pollinated.

Britain's Road to Socialism
Britain's Road to Socialism is the programme of the Communist Party of Britain, is adhered to by the Young Communist League and the editors of the Morning Star newspaper. It proposes that socialism can be achieved in Britain by the working class leading the other classes in a popular democratic anti-monopoly alliance against monopoly capital, implementing a left-wing programme of socialist construction. Part of this strategy involves winning the labour movement with a left-wing position, through struggle in the existing democratic bodies of the working class, such as trades unions, trades union councils and tenant's associations; the publication of Communist Party programmes in Britain began in the 1920s with the release of Class against Class, the General Election Programme of the Communist Party of Great Britain. This was published in 1929 by the Communist Party of Great Britain, the precursor to the Communist Party of Britain, for the general election of that year in which the party fielded 25 candidates.
The subsequent programme, titled For Soviet Britain, was published for the party's 13th Congress in 1935. An unnamed draft programme was issued in 1939 but the Second World War and its aftermath delayed the publication of an updated programme until the 1950s. For Soviet Britain was superseded in February 1951 when The British Road to Socialism was published, the original incarnation of today's Britain's Road to Socialism; the first edition of the document received the personal approval of Joseph Stalin prior to publication. Under its original name, it underwent revisions in 1952, 1958, 1968 and 1977; when the CPGB's leadership abandoned The British Road to Socialism in 1985, elements in the party that remained loyal to the programme, including the editorial board of The Morning Star, split to form the Communist Party of Britain in 1988. The party published the 6th edition of The British Road to Socialism in 1989. Two subsequent editions have been produced with further revisions and a change of name to Britain's Road to Socialism.
The 7th edition was published in 2001 and the 8th edition in 2011. 6th edition 7th edition 8th edition
Bristol Airport, at Lulsgate Bottom in North Somerset, is the commercial airport serving the city of Bristol and the surrounding area. It is 7 nautical miles southwest of Bristol city centre. Built on the site of a former RAF airfield, it opened in 1957 as Bristol Airport, replacing Bristol Airport as Bristol's municipal airport. From 1997 to 2010 it was known as Bristol International Airport. In 1997 a majority shareholding in the airport was sold to FirstGroup, in 2001 the airport was sold to a joint venture of Macquarie Bank and others. In September 2014, Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan bought out Macquarie to become the sole owner. In 2018 it was ranked the ninth busiest airport in the United Kingdom, handling nearly 8.7 million passengers, an over 5% increase compared with 2017. A passenger survey carried out in 2015 found that 32.5% of journeys using the airport started or ended in the city of Bristol, 9.6% in Gloucestershire, 24.5% in Somerset and 16.9% in Devon. Airlines with operating bases at the airport include Ryanair.
The airport has a Civil Aviation Authority Public Use Aerodrome Licence that allows flights for the public transport of passengers and for flying instruction. In 1927 a group of local businessmen raised £6,000 through public subscription to start the Bristol and Wessex Aeroplane Club, a flying club based at Filton Aerodrome. In 1929, Bristol Corporation took up the club's proposal to develop farmland located at Whitchurch, to the south of Bristol, into a municipal airport. On its opening by Prince George, Duke of Kent in 1930, Bristol Airport was the third civil airport in the United Kingdom. Passenger numbers grew to 4,000 by 1939. During World War II, Whitchurch was the main civil airport remaining operational; the newly formed British Overseas Airways Corporation was transferred to Whitchurch from Croydon Airport and Heston Airport. BOAC operated routes around the British Empire and to neutral nations, including the Bristol–Lisbon route, operated by the Dutch airline KLM, under charter to BOAC.
In September 1940, No 10 Elementary Flying Training School at RAF Weston-super-Mare established a Relief Landing Ground on 14 acres at Broadfield Down by the hamlet of Lulsgate Bottom, near Redhill. Being high, at 600 ft, the site had a poor weather record during warm front conditions, when it was covered in low cloud. However, when this occurred the alternative airfields at Filton and Cardiff were clear and operational. Few facilities were constructed although pillboxes, defensive anti-aircraft guns and two Blister hangars were added. In late 1940, a Starfish site was set up south of the village of Downside and just west of the airfield, its decoy fires attracted a large quantity of Luftwaffe high explosives and incendiaries on the nights of 16 March, 3 April and 4 April 1941 during the Bristol Blitz. In 1941, RAF Fighter Command planned to use the airfield for an experimental unit, after requisitioning land from several adjacent farms, contracted George Wimpey and Company to begin work on 11 June 1941.
However, its intended use soon changed into being a satellite airfield for the fighter squadrons based at RAF Colerne. The new airfield's name was to be RAF Broadfield Down; the runways used the standard triangular pattern. The main, east-west runway was 3,891 ft long, with a designated alignment of 28/10, the others were 3,300 ft aligned 21/03 and 3,294 ft aligned 34/16; the first aircraft to land was a Luftwaffe Ju 88 at 06.20 on 24 July 1941. Returning from a raid, it was confused by the RAF electronic countermeasures radio beacon at Lympsham, re-radiating the signal from a Luftwaffe homing beacon at Brest, France. By 1942, there was no longer a need for an additional fighter airfield. With its name changed to RAF Lulsgate Bottom, the airfield was declared operational on 15 January 1942; the Miles Masters, Airspeed Oxfords and Hawker Hurricanes of No. 286 Squadron became resident, with the duty of providing realistic exercises for ground anti-aircraft defences. However, as the site lacked some basic facilities, No. 286 moved to RAF Zeals in May.
From 1 June 1942, the airfield was under No. 23 Group of Flying Training Command, became a satellite airfield for No. 3 Advanced Flying Unit, based at RAF South Cerney, flying Oxfords. In March 1943, No. 1540 Beam Approach Training Flight was formed at Lulsgate. On 27 September 1943, 3 AFU left Lulsgate for RAF Southrop, was replaced on 1 October 1943 by No. 3 Flying Instructors School, headquartered at RAF Hullavington. 3 FIS flew Oxfords and some Masters. In 1944, BOAC started to use the airfield for Dakota and Liberator crew training, BOAC flights made use of it as an alternate airfield for Whitchurch, for topping-up fuel on the Bristol–Lisbon route. On 6 February 1945, 1540 BATF left for RAF Weston Zoyland. On 18 July 1945, 3 FIS was absorbed into 7 FIS. With the war over, the RAF ceased training at Lulsgate on 15 April 1946, the next month 7 FIS left the airfield and joined the Central Flying School at RAF Little Rissington; the RAF abandoned Lulsgate on 25 October 1946. From 1948, the site was the home of the Bristol Gliding Club.
In 1949 and 1950, the Bristol Motor Cycle and Light Car Club hosted motor races on a 2 mi circuit known as Lulsgate Aerodrome, but due to planning and noise issues moved in 1950 to a site that became known as Castle Combe Circuit. Whitchurch
