Book of Wisdom

The Wisdom of Solomon or Book of Wisdom is a Jewish work, written in Greek, most composed in Alexandria, Egypt. Dated to the mid first century BC, the central theme of the work is "Wisdom" itself, appearing under two principal aspects. In its relation to man, Wisdom is the perfection of knowledge of the righteous as a gift from God showing itself in action. In direct relation to God, Wisdom is with God from all eternity, it is one of the seven Sapiential or wisdom books included within the Septuagint, along with Psalms, Ecclesiastes, Song of Songs and Sirach, is included in the canon of Deuterocanonical books by the Roman Catholic Church and the anagignoskomena of the Eastern Orthodox Church. Most Protestants consider it part of the Apocrypha; the structure can be divided into three sections: Book of Eschatology exhortation to justice speech of the impious, contrasts of the wicked and the just exhortation to wisdom Book of Wisdom Solomon's speech concerning wisdom, wealth and prayer Book of History introduction, followed by diptychs of plagues digression on God's power and mercy digression on false worship and further plagues recapitulation and concluding doxology.

The book is addressed to the rulers of the earth, urging them to seek wisdom. In the second section Solomon tells of his search for wisdom; the Wisdom of Solomon can be linked to several forms of ancient literature, both Jewish and non-Jewish, but it belongs with biblical Wisdom books such as the Book of Job, one of only five such books among ancient Jewish literature. In terms of classical genre it has been identified as an encomium and with the Greek genre of the "exhortatory discourse", by which a teacher attempts to persuade others to a certain course of action. Melito of Sardis in the 2nd century AD, Augustine and Pope Innocent I considered Wisdom of Solomon as part of the Old Testament. Athanasius writes that the Book of Wisdom along with three other deuterocanonical books, while not being part of the Canon, "were appointed by the Fathers to be read". Epiphanius of Salamis mentions. According to the monk Rufinus of Aquileia the Book of Wisdom was not called a canonical but ecclesiastical book.

The Book of Wisdom was listed as canonical by the Council of Rome, the Synod of Hippo, the Council of Carthage and the Council of Carthage, the Council of Florence and the Council of Trent. The Wisdom of Solomon was written in Greek, in Alexandria, in the late 1st century BC to early 1st century AD, it is uncertain whether the book has a single author or comes from a school of writers, but recent scholarship has favoured regarding it as a unified work. In either case its blend of Greek and Jewish features suggests a learned Hellenistic background, despite the address to the "rulers of the world" the actual audience was members of the author's own community who were tempted to give up their Jewishness in the face of the temptations of Greek culture and the hostile conditions facing Jews in the Greek world; the book opens with the opposed pairs righteousness/unrighteousness and death/immortality: those who do not follow righteousness will fall into "senseless reasoning" and will not be open to wisdom.

The suffering of the righteous will be rewarded with immortality, while the wicked will end miserably. The unrighteous are doomed because they do not know God's purpose, but the righteous will judge the unrighteous in God's presence. Lady Wisdom dominates the next section, she existed from the Creation, God is her source and guide. She is to be loved and desired, kings seek her: Solomon himself preferred Wisdom to wealth and all other things, she in turn has always come from Adam to the Exodus. The final section takes up the theme of the rescue of the righteous, taking the Exodus as its focus: "You have not neglected to help at all times and in all places."

Kingspade consists of the rap duo Johnny Richter and D-Loc of Kottonmouth Kings. Kingspade debuted with the track "The Adventures of This" on the Subnoize Rats Compilation in 2003. One year the Kottonmouth Kings' sixth full-length album Fire It Up was released, including two bonus tracks. One of these was a new Kingspade track entitled "High Riders". On this track it was announced that a Kingspade album was to be released that year. In the summer of 2004, the anticipated Kingspade debut album was released; this album included the hits "Drunk in the Club" and the released "High Riders". Following this release came some touring until they started to work on the next Kottonmouth Kings album. Over the next few years not much was heard from Kingspade other than a few shows there. In 2005, the Kottonmouth Kings released the album Joint Venture, which featured two new Kingspade tracks. Included was an advertisement stating that a new Kingspade album would be released in June 2006. Promotion was brought upon with in ad included in the Kottonmouth Kings' fourteenth official album, Koast II Koast, stating the release would come in the late summer of 2006.

This information turned out to be false. Nothing was heard of the album or Kingspade for months until the release of Kottonmouth Kings' Hidden Stash III, which included a new Kingspade track entitled "That's How It Goes". A few months it was announced that Kingspade would be performing on Kottonmouth Kings' The Joint is on Fire Tour, it was stated that Kingspade's second release, P. T. B. would be released on April 24, 2007. Following the release of P. T. B. Kingspade headlined their own tour, accompanied by California-natives 1Ton and UnderRated, who make up the music group Potluck. Kingspade rejoined the Kottonmouth Kings on their StrangeNoize Tour; this tour included Tech N9ne, Hed PE, Blaze Ya Dead Homie, SubNoize Souljaz. Special appearances included Cypress Hill and Ill Bill of La Coka Nostra; the tour was to celebrate Cloud Nine. They had three tours in the state of Texas, got into some trouble with authorities there. D-loc would not give a lot of information on this topic, but Richter said this, "Me and D was just rhymin... after the show we headed out to the cars, not knowing that police would be waiting for us.

One of the girls that were at the concert had gotten hit by the falling speaker me and D were playin with." In March 2013 it was announced by Daddy X that KMK was starting up a new label. A few days after the announcement, it was found out that the label would be called United Family Music. In October 2013 Johnny Richter announced via Twitter that he was no longer apart of Kottonmouth Kings, he stated in his comments that he was unsure if he'd continue with music. This conjured bad blood on both sides, with both sides stating "I won't work with them/him again", putting Kingspade on hiatus. In December 2013 he released his second overall solo album titled FreeKing Out EP on SubNoize. D-Loc released a solo album titled Bong Tokes & Love Notes EP in December 2013. Kottonmouth Kings released their first album without Johnny Richter since 1999 with the CD Buddah Shack EP; the group would go on to release one final studio album titled Krown Power on August 28, 2015. On December 2, 2017 via Instagram, a picture was uploaded showing D-Loc and Johnny Richter reunited and hinting at something happening with the group, as well as a Kingspade Instagram account launching, an announcement from D-Loc saying he was putting together a documentary on how the group was formed, the career of the group, the current status of the group.

It has some fans saying that the 2 are only together for the documentary and nothing more, to fans hopeful of a classic KMK lineup album and final tour. Kingspade official site Kottonmouth Kings official site Suburban Noize Records official website biography on Kingspade

Derby County Baseball Club

The Derby County Baseball Club was a short-lived baseball club in Derby, that played baseball until 1898 when football became the dominant sport. Baseball was introduced to Derby by Francis Ley, an industrialist who owned Ley's Malleable Castings. Following a visit to the United States of America in 1889, Ley decided that, as a way of ensuring a healthier and more productive workforce, an investment should be made in promoting recreation for his workers. During his journey to the States, Ley had seen the way in which baseball fields had been laid out by companies and factories for the use by their workers and decided to follow suit on his return to Derby. Ley had the Baseball Ground built; the club ran away with the first championship after the National Baseball League of Great Britain and Ireland was established in 1890. However, pressure from other teams in the league over the number of American players on the Derby team forced Derby to resign at the end of the league's first season, though the baseball club itself lasted until 1898.

The Baseball Ground continued to be used under that name as the home of football's Derby County F. C. from 1895 to 1997. Steve Bloomer Jack Robinson British Champions: 3 1895, 1897, 1898 Baseball in the United Kingdom Article about Exhibition Game at Baseball Ground
