Botwulf of Thorney

St Botolph of Thorney was an English abbot and saint. He is the various aspects of farming, his feast day is celebrated either on 17 June or 25 June, his translation falls on 1 December. Little is known about Botolph's life, other than doubtful details in an account written four hundred years after his death by the 11th-century monk Folcard; the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle records for the year 6531: "The Middle Angles, under earldorman Peada, received the true faith. King Anna was killed and Botolph began to build the church at Ikanho". Botolph founded the monastery of Icanho in Suffolk. Icanho, which means'ox hill', has been identified as Iken, located by the estuary of the River Alde in Suffolk; the saint's relics were transferred again, along with those of his brother Adulph, to Thorney Abbey, although his head was transferred to Ely Abbey and various body parts to other houses, including Westminster Abbey. Many English churches are dedicated to Botolph. According to the Oxford Dictionary of Saints, 64 ancient English churches were dedicated to him, but research has suggested the true number may have been as high as 71, with a high concentration of dedications in East Anglia.

St Botolph's Church in Boston, known locally as "The Stump", is one of the most famous. Boston, or'Botolph's town' gave Boston, Massachusetts its name. St Botolph's Priory in Colchester, the first Augustinian monastery in England, was built on an earlier Saxon church dedicated to Botolph. St Botolph's Church in Hardham, West Sussex, houses some of the most ancient surviving wall paintings in Britain, including the earliest known depiction of St George in England. In his role as a patron saint of travellers, four City of London churches were dedicated to him, all of which were close to gates in the City walls: St Botolph Billingsgate, destroyed in the Great Fire and never rebuilt, it is believed that these dedications were made because the churches provided places for incoming travellers to give thanks for their safe arrival and for outgoing travellers to pray for a safe journey. An alternative possibility is that the churches were dedicated to the saint because his relics came through the four gates when Edgar moved them from Iken to Westminster Abbey.

Beyond the North Sea, Budolfi Church in Aalborg, Denmark a smallish building, grew to be the major church of the town by the late Middle Ages and is now the cathedral church of the diocese of Aalborg. He is remembered in the names of both the market town of Boston, Lincolnshire in the United Kingdom and Boston, Massachusetts, in the United States. Boston was Botolphston. In Boston, Massachusetts, St Botolph gives his name to the St Botolph Club, a private club, a street in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood, the President's House at Boston College. There is a St Botolph Street in London; the University of Cambridge's poetry journal in the 1950s, to which Ted Hughes contributed, was called St Botolph's Review. It was named for St Botolph's Church, Cambridge as one of its founders, Lucas Myers, lived at the rectory of St Botolph's Church in Cambridge. A second edition of the journal was published in 2006. "St Botolph's College" has been used as a hypothetical college in Cambridge University communications and Tripos examinations.

The parish of Buttsbury in Essex was called Botolfvespirie, meaning Botolph's or Botwulf's Pear Tree. It is sometimes surmised.

Roosevelt Presidential Library, Films of You, where she works as documentary producer. Ama L'Uomo Tuo is an 18:52 minute long documentary centred on DeVito's grandmother's life. Produced in 1975, two years after her grandfather, Liborio Logiudice died, the work explores Adeline's turbulent marriage, recounting her experiences of violence, a forced illegal abortion, abuse. In the video, Adeline shares her views on marriage and housewifery, expressing that it is'"the most important job, the most important thing in life," she says. "My husband trained me, Cara. Fix the table in the morning, so when people comes, you have nothing to do but greet the guests. Fifty years with the same man! Prepare! Wash! Cook!"' Produced in a time when gendered violence first gained mainstream awareness, Ama L'Uomo Tuo is in dialogue with the practices of consciousness raising groups, an early feminist movement.

The documentary has been described by the Video Data Bank as "an example of a sympathetic documentary." While the Electronic Arts Intermix refers to it as classic, a "character study and social commentary" and "a telling critique of patriarchal society." In "Early Feminist Projects", Martha Gever discusses Ama L'Uomo Tuo "as a biography centered on her fifty-year marriage and her husband's violence toward her." Which she follows by discussing the reasoning behind staying in the marriage, as well as the chilling implications of the final line: "ama l'uomo tuo, always love your man."

Torneo Sangre Nueva

Torneo Sangre Nueva is a professional wrestling tournament promoted by the Mexican lucha libre promotion Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre, first held in 2012. The tournament focuses on younger wrestlers or wrestlers who work in the lower ranks of the promotion the first or second match of the show, as a way to highlight or promote a wrestler up to a higher level of competition. A total of 27 individuals have competed in the two Sangre Nueva tournaments held as of 2014 with nine competitors participating in both tournaments held so far: Bobby Zavala, Camaleón, El Cholo, Hombre Bala Jr. Robin, Soberano Jr. Stigma and Super Halcón Jr.. Soberano Jr. is both the youngest competitor over-all and the youngest tournament winner as well, while Cholo is the oldest at the time of his second tournament participation. Soberano Jr. was the lightest competitor and champion at 75 kg while Bronco, at 103 kg, was the heaviest of any tournament competitor so far. The first Torneo Sangre Nueva took place in March 2012.

Some of the competitors did not fit the "New Blood" tournaments, but in the case of wrestlers like Cancerbero and Raziel, the ring persona he portrayed had only been used for around 2 years, making the character a rookie, but not the man under the mask. CMLL has a history of not promoting the fact that some of their workers have worked under different identities previously; the tournament played out from March 6, 2012, until March 20, 2012, on CMLL's Tuesday shows in Arena Mexico. The first two shows had 8 wrestlers compete for a shot at the finals; each night the eight wrestlers competed in a "Seeding" battle royal to determine the four on four Torneo cibernetico elimination match. On the first night El Cholo, Soberano Jr. Cancerbero, Dragon Lee comprised one team while Bobby Zavala, Titán, Stigma and Camaleón on the other. Dragon Lee won the match; the second block, on March 13, 2012 saw Disturbio, Hombre Bala Jr. Raziel, Tritón team up to face Robin, Hijo del Signo, Super Halcón Jr. Raziel took the victory, eliminating Tritón to end the nearly 25 minute long match to move on to the finals.

A week on March 20, 2012 Dragon Lee and Raziel faced off in the only three fall match of the night. Dragon Lee defeated Raziel to win the Torneo Sangre Nueva. Cibernetico order of eliminationAftermathOn June 20, 2012, CMLL held a press conference, during which lucha libre priest Fray Tormenta announced that since Dragon Lee had impressed him with his in ring performance, Fray Tormenta wanted Dragon Lee to take over the role of Místico, his storyline protégé. Lee accepted Tormenta's offer and received his new mask to become the second incarnation of Místico, taking over the successful role following the character's original performer, who had signed with WWE in January 2011. Titán entered CMLL's En Busca de un Ídolo a few months after narrowly missing out on the Sangre Nueva tournament finals; the tournament used a point system that allowed fans to vote online, allowing Titán to advance to the second round despite only winning one of his four first round matches. The fan support propelled Titán to the finale.

Titán would defeat En Busca de un Ídolo rival Pólvora to win the Mexican National Welterweight Championship Cholo, Bobby Zavala, Soberano Jr. Camaleón, Robin and Super Halcón Jr. would all compete in the subsequent Torneo Sangre Nueva in 2013. On February 21, 2013, CMLL announced that they were holding another Torneo Sangre Nueva tournament in 2013 making it an annual event. Like the first tournament the 2013 Sangre Nueva would feature two qualifying torneo cibernetico elimination matches with the winner of each facing off in a one-on-one match. In 2013 the cibernetico match included 10 competitors instead of the eight competitors in the previous year's tournament; the first match took place on February 26, 2013, in Arena Mexico and saw Soberano Jr. outlast Camaleón, Stigma, Höruz, Hombre Bala Jr. Akuma, Espanto Jr. Herodes Jr. Cholo and Bobby Zavala to qualify for the finals. During the match Höruz suffered a knee injury as a result of a dive out of the ring, the injury was believed to keep him out of the ring for three months.

Block B competed on March 5, 2013, for the other finalist spot, with a field that included Genesis, Oro Jr. Robin, Super Halcón Jr. Disturbio, Guerrero Negro Jr. Inquisidor and Zayco; as with the 2012 Torneo Sangre Nueva, not everyone competing in the tournament fit the "new blood" description. Inquisidor made his professional wrestling in 1995, but only adopted the Inquisidor name and mask in 2008, with CMLL not acknowledging his past history before becoming Inquisidor; the second Cibernetico was won by Taurus, son of Último Guerrero when he was the last wrestler in the ring, eliminating Guerrero Negro Jr. to earn his spot in the finals for the following week. The following week, Sobereano Jr. defeated Taurus, two falls to one to win the 2013 Sangre Nueva tournament. Cibernetico order of elimination

Garrison Melmoth 2

The Garrison Melmoth 2 is the second aircraft design from author Peter Garrison. The Melmoth 2 was started in August 1981 as a composite follow-on to the complex Melmoth homebuilt. Initial fuselage lay-up was performed by Garrison along with engineer Burt Rutan and future private astronaut Mike Melvill, who performed a fair number of the test flights; the aircraft is a single engine four-seat retractable tricycle gear low-wing with a T-tail arrangement. The rear seats face aft; the engine is cooled using updraft air which enters through a single inlet below the spinner and emerges from the top of the cowling near the spinner. A single airbrake panel opens under the fuselage; the tapered wings are equipped with large Fowler flaps. The original design has been modified with 45-degree sweep winglets and gear doors.

Ormosieae

The tribe Ormosieae is one of the subdivisions of the plant family Fabaceae found in tropical regions of the Americas, but in southeast Asia and northern Australia. The members of this tribe were included in tribe Sophoreae, but were circumscribed into a new tribe; the members of this tribe form a monophyletic clade in molecular phylogenetic analyses. The tribe does not have a node-based definition, but morphological synapomorphies have been tentatively identified: "mostly dehiscent pods with woody valves" and "tufts of minute colleter-like glands in the axils of bract and bracteoles". Like other genistoids, members of tribe Ormosieae are known to produce quinolizidine alkaloids. Data related to Ormosieae at Wikispecies
