CD Leganés

Club Deportivo Leganés, S. A. D. is a Spanish football team from Leganés, in the outskirts of Madrid. Founded on 23 June 1928 it plays in the Primera División, holding home games at Estadio Municipal de Butarque, which seats 12,450 spectators; the club was founded on June 23,1928 by Félix Pérez de la Serna. Its first president was Ramón del Hierro. Leganés played the vast majority of its existence in the lower leagues. In 1977 the club regained promotion to the fourth division, where it had played before for seven years when the category was still the third level. After a steady progression, Leganés reached the new division three in 1987, being promoted to the second division six years and maintaining its league status for 11 seasons. In the 2015–16 season, for the first time in their history, Leganés earned promotion to La Liga, sealed on 4 June 2016 with a 1–0 away win against CD Mirandés, their first season in the elite proved to be hard, with the team finishing 17th avoiding relegation. Their next season ended again finishing 17th.

The 2018-19 season was the best however, with Leganes finishing 13th. On 24 January 2018, Leganés qualified for the first time to the semifinals of the Copa del Rey, by eliminating Real Madrid in the quarterfinals thanks to a 2–1 win at Santiago Bernabéu Stadium; the fans have friendly relation with ultras group Gate 12 of Egaleo FC, the towns of Egaleo and Leganés happen to be twinned too.

7th (Light Infantry) Parachute Battalion

The 7th Parachute Battalion was an airborne infantry battalion of the Parachute Regiment, formed by the British Army during the Second World War. The battalion was raised in November 1942 by the conversion of the 10th Battalion, Somerset Light Infantry to parachute duties, it was assigned to the 3rd Parachute Brigade, part of 1st Airborne Division, but moved to the 5th Parachute Brigade, alongside the 12th and 13th Parachute battalions, of the 6th Airborne Division soon afterwards. The battalion saw combat on D-Day in Operation Tonga on 6 June 1944, the Battle of the Bulge in December and the River Rhine crossing in March 1945. After the war ended in Europe, the battalion, with the 5th Parachute Brigade, was sent to the Far East to undertake operations against the Japanese Empire. However, the war ended. Moving by sea, the battalion took part in the reoccupation of Singapore. Problems in Java resulted in the battalion being sent to Batavia to control the unrest, until relieved by a Dutch force.

The battalion rejoined the 6th Airborne Division in Palestine. Post war army reductions saw the battalion amalgamated with the 17th Parachute Battalion, but still remaining the 7th Parachute Battalion, but further reductions saw the battalion disbanded. Impressed by the success of German airborne operations during the Battle of France, the British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, directed the War Office to investigate the possibility of creating a corps of 5,000 parachute troops. On 22 June 1940, No. 2 Commando was turned over to parachute duties and, on 21 November, redesignated the 11th Special Air Service Battalion, with a parachute and glider wing. It was these men who took part in the first British airborne operation, Operation Colossus, on 10 February 1941; the battalion was redesignated as the 1st Parachute Battalion. The success of the raid prompted the War Office to expand the existing airborne force, setting up the Airborne Forces Depot and Battle School in Derbyshire in April 1942, creating the Parachute Regiment as well as converting a number of infantry battalions into airborne battalions in August 1942.

The 7th Parachute Battalion was formed, in November 1942, by the conversion of the 10th Battalion, Somerset Light Infantry, a war service battalion created two years earlier, to parachute duties. The battalion was assigned to the 3rd Parachute Brigade part of the 1st Airborne Division but transferred to the 6th Airborne Division; when the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion arrived in Britain, it was assigned to the 3rd Parachute Brigade and the 7th Parachute Battalion was transferred to the 5th Parachute Brigade, a part of the 6th Airborne Division. In 1942, a parachute battalion had an establishment of 556 men in three companies supported by a 3 inch mortar platoon and a Vickers machine gun platoon. By 1944, a support company was added to command the battalion's heavy weapons, it comprised three platoons: a Mortar Platoon with eight 3 inch mortars, a Machine Gun Platoon with four Vickers machine guns and an Anti-tank Platoon with ten PIAT anti-tank projectors. On 6 June 1944, the 7th Parachute Battalion landed in Normandy.

Many men of the battalion were landed on the wrong drop zone. So badly scattered were they that, by 03:00, Lieutenant Colonel Pine-Coffin in command had only around forty percent of the battalion at the forming up point, although men continued to appear throughout the day. Few of their supply containers had been found, meaning that they possessed few heavy weapons or radio sets. However, the battalion managed to rendezvous with the coup-de-main forces of the 2nd Battalion, Ox and Bucks Light Infantry at the Caen and Orne bridges, they set up a defensive perimeter against German counter-attacks. The first German assault on the bridges came between 05:00 and 07:00 and consisted of isolated and uncoordinated attacks by tanks, armoured cars and infantry, which grew in intensity throughout the day; the Luftwaffe attempted to destroy the Caen bridge with a 1,000 lb bomb, which failed to detonate, two German Navy coastal craft, which attempted to attack the bridge, were repelled. Despite the ferocity of the attacks, the battalion and the coup-de-main forces were able to hold the bridges until 19:00, when leading elements of the 3rd British Infantry Division arrived and began to relieve the battalion.

By midnight, the battalion was being held in reserve behind the 12th Parachute Battalion occupying Le Bas de Ranville and the 13th Parachute Battalion holding Ranville. The 6th Airborne Division was called to intervene in the German offensive through the Ardennes on 20 December 1944. On the 29th of that month, they attacked the tip of the German thrust and the 3rd Parachute Brigade was given responsibility for the Rochefort sector, which they took after meeting stiff resistance. After several months of heavy patrolling, in Belgium and, in February, the Netherlands, the Division was withdrawn to England. With the war in Europe over, the battalion moved to the Far East with the 5th Parachute Brigade between 1945–1946. Thereafter, it returned to the 6th Airborne Division in Palestine and was incorporated into the 17th Parachute Battalion in July 1946 while retaining its name. After the 5th Parachute Brigade was disbanded, the men of the battalion were reallocated among the remainder of the division and the unit re-designated 3rd Parachute Battalion at Itzehoe in July 1948.

Jennifer Doudna

Jennifer Anne Doudna is an American biochemist. She is a Li Ka Shing Chancellor Chair Professor in the Department of Chemistry and the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of California, Berkeley. Doudna has been an investigator with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute since 1997, since 2018 she holds the position of senior investigator at the Gladstone Institutes as well as that of professor at the University of California, San Francisco. Doudna has been a leading figure in what is referred to as the "CRISPR revolution" for her fundamental work and leadership in developing CRISPR-mediated genome editing. In 2012, Doudna and Emmanuelle Charpentier were the first to propose that CRISPR-Cas9 could be used for programmable editing of genomes, now considered one of the most significant discoveries in the history of biology. Doudna has made fundamental contributions in biochemistry and genetics and received many prestigious awards and fellowships including the 2000 Alan T. Waterman Award for her research on the structure as determined by X-ray crystallography of a ribozyme, the 2015 Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences for CRISPR-Cas9 genome editing technology.

She has been a co-recipient of the Gruber Prize in Genetics, the Canada Gairdner International Award, the Japan Prize. Outside the scientific community, she has been named one of the Time 100 most influential people in 2015, she was listed as a runner-up for Time Person of the Year in 2016 alongside other CRISPR researchers. Jennifer Doudna was born February 19, 1964 in Washington, D. C, her father received his Ph. D. in English literature from the University of Michigan, her mother, a stay-at-home parent, held a master's degree in education. When Doudna was seven years old, the family moved to Hawaii because her father accepted a position in American literature at the University of Hawaii at Hilo. Jennifer Doudna's mother earned a second master's degree in Asian history from the university and taught history at a local community college. Growing up in Hilo, Doudna was fascinated by the environmental beauty of the island and its exotic plants and animals, they built her sense of curiosity about how nature works and she wanted to understand the underlying biological mechanisms.

When she was in school, she developed her interest in science and mathematics. Her father fostered a culture of intellectual pursuit in her home, he filled the home with plenty of books on popular science. When she was in the sixth grade, her father gave her a copy of The Double Helix; when she was in high school, she was influenced by a chemistry teacher. Doudna entered Pomona College in California to study biochemistry. During her sophomore year, while taking a course in general chemistry, she questioned her own ability to pursue a career in science, considered switching her major to French. However, her French teacher suggested. Chemistry professors Fred Grieman and Corwin Hansch at Pomona had a major impact on her, she started her first scientific research in the lab of professor Sharon Panasenko. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Biochemistry in 1985, she chose Harvard Medical School for her doctoral study and earned a Ph. D. in Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology in 1989.

Her Ph. D. dissertation was on a system that increased the efficiency of a self-replicating catalytic RNA and was supervised by Jack W. Szostak. From 1989 to 1991, she held research fellowships in molecular biology at the Massachusetts General Hospital and in genetics at Harvard Medical School. From 1991 to 1994, she was Lucille P. Markey Postdoctoral Scholar in Biomedical Science at the University of Colorado Boulder, where she worked with Thomas Cech. Early in her scientific career, Doudna worked to uncover the structure and biological function of RNA enzymes or ribozymes. While in the Szostak lab, Doudna re-engineered the self-splicing Tetrahymena Group I catalytic intron into a true catalytic ribozyme that copied RNA templates, her focus was on engineering ribozymes and understanding their underlying mechanisms. So she went to the lab of Thomas Cech at the University of Colorado Boulder to crystallize and determine the three-dimensional structure of a ribozyme for the first time, so ribozyme structure could be compared with that of enzymes, the catalytic proteins.

She started this project in the Cech lab in 1991 and finished it at Yale University in 1996. She had joined Yale's Department of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry as an assistant professor in 1994. At Yale, Doudna's group was able to crystallize and solve the three-dimensional structure of the catalytic core of the Tetrahymena Group I ribozyme, her group was able to grow high-quality crystals, but they struggled with the phase problem due to unspecific binding of the metal ions. One of her early graduate students and her husband, Jamie Cate decided to soak the crystals in the heavy metal derivative, osmium hexammine to imitate magnesium. Using this strategy, they were able to solve the structure, the first solved ribozyme structure and the second solved folded RNA structure, they found that the osmium hexammines mimicking the normal magnesium ions were in a cluster at the center of the ribozyme and served as a core for RNA folding. This interaction created a structure in the ribozyme catalytic center, similar to that of an active site in the hydrophobic core of a protein.

Her group has crystallized other ribozymes, including the Hepatitis De

Seymour Clark

Arthur Henry Seymour Clark, was a first-class cricketer who played five times for Somerset in the 1930 English cricket season and set a record for the number of innings batted without scoring a run that appears not to have been surpassed. Clark, a locomotive driver with the Great Western Railway, did not play any cricket until he was 25, when he began playing for a railways team. Three years he was called into the Somerset side for five matches when regular wicketkeeper Wally Luckes was ill, he took eight catches, Wisden Cricketers' Almanack for 1931 said that he "rendered useful service in that capacity". He stood up to the wicket to all bowlers the fastest; the county offered him a professional contract but he decided to stay with the railway. Clark is chiefly remembered as a batsman. In nine innings in the five games, he failed to score a single run. In the match against Northamptonshire at Kettering, he was not out in both innings and failed to score, but otherwise he was out for 0, bowled five times and caught twice.

Nine innings is believed to be the record for a first-class cricketer who failed to score a single run. John Howarth of Nottinghamshire played in 13 batted only seven times. In Clark's obituary in Wisden 1996 edition, it is reported that the Essex and England bowler Peter Smith, bowling Essex to an overwhelming victory at Colchester, attempted to give him a run, he bowled so to Clark that the ball bounced twice before reaching the batsman. Clark was still bowled by it. In club cricket, Clark reckoned his highest score was three. Clark remained with the railway until he retired to Weston-super-Mare in 1965.
