Alex Carey (writer)

Alexander Edward Carey was an Australian writer and social psychologist. Before enrolling at London University, Carey had been a sheep farmer for ten years on his family's property near Geraldton in Western Australia. From 1958 until his death, he was a lecturer in psychology at the University of New South Wales; the main subjects of his lectures and research were industrial psychology, industrial relations, the psychology of nationalism and propaganda. He was one of the founding members of the Australian Humanist Society in 1960. In the 1970s, Carey was prominent in the protest movement against Australian participation in the Vietnam War, he was the father of Gabrielle Carey. In 1988, Noam Chomsky and Edward S. Herman published their Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media in dedication to the memory of Carey. Claiming that it was Carey who had inspired their work, Chomsky has said, "The real importance of Carey's work is that it's the first effort, until now the major effort, to bring some of to public attention.

It's had a tremendous influence on the work I've done." Journalist John Pilger has called Carey "a second Orwell in his prophesies". According to Noam Chomsky, Carey pioneered the study of corporate propaganda. Much of Carey's work in this area was cut short by his death. In 1995, a collection of his essays were published under the title, Taking the Risk Out of Democracy: Propaganda in the U. S. and Australia. Carey collaborated with Noam Chomsky, studying with him at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for twelve months in 1978 and meeting with him again while on a sabbatical in the United States during the last year of his life. Carey committed suicide in 1987. Members of his family speculated that his reasons included substantial financial losses in the stock market crash of that year and a battle with depression in his final years. Carey, Alex.

Margaret of Scotland, Countess of Kent

Margaret of Scotland was a princess of Scotland and an English noblewoman. Margaret was born at Haddington, East Lothian, the first child of William I of Scotland and his wife Ermengarde de Beaumont, she was an older sister of Alexander II of Scotland. Her father had battled with Henry II of England as well as his younger son John of England; as a result, in 1209, William was forced to send Margaret and her younger sister Isabella as hostages. In June 1213, John sent green robes, lambskin-trimmed cloaks, summer slippers to the three noble ladies; the ladies were sometimes allowed to ride out under the strictest guard. On 19 June 1221, Margaret married Hubert de Burgh. At the time of their marriage Hubert was the Regent of the Kingdom of England since Henry III was too young to carry out the duties of King. Henry III came of age in 1227 and Hubert retired from his duties as Regent, he remained one of the most influential people at court. They had only one known daughter: Margaret de Burgh. Known as "Megotta", she married Richard de Clare, 5th Earl of Hertford, but left no issue.

Margaret of Scotland's line thus became extinct in 1237. She survived her husband by sixteen years and died in 1259, she was buried at the Church of the Black Friars of London. From her birth to her death was Margaret was arguably either first or second heir to the throne of the Kingdom of Scotland as one of the few living, legitimate descendants of William I. However, cognatic primogeniture was not yet the norm in Scotland and more distant relatives could well claim the throne, as they in fact did in the Succession Crisis of 1290 to 1292. Marek, Miroslav.

Liza Essers

Liza Essers is the owner and director of Goodman Gallery in South Africa, established in 1966. After receiving her Bachelor of Commerce in Economics, Essers worked as a strategic consultant for the leading global professional services company Accenture as well as in private equity where she rose to prominence in the commercial and financial sector of South Africa. Prior to purchasing Goodman Gallery in 2008, Essers was an independent art advisor and curator specializing in the conceptualization and production of visual art and film projects, she was the co-executive producer of the South African film, the first African film to win an Academy Award. She produced a documentary film along with Catherine Meyburgh titled Kentridge and Dumas in Conversation which talks about the real life stories of contemporary artists William Kentridge and Marlene Dumas. In her early 30s, Essers worked as an independent film producer, her interest in documentary filmmaking came from its closeness to contemporary art.

Her passion for contemporary art stemmed from its ability to effect social change. In an interview, Essers has credited her experiences as the inspiration for her desire "to work in the contemporary art world with artists who make work that can force shifts in thinking." Since her takeover of Goodman Gallery in 2008, Essers has expanded the country's definitive contemporary outlet into an international powerhouse while maintaining its legacy as a force for social and political change. Since acquiring the gallery, Essers realized the importance of shifting from showing artists from South Africa to working with artists from the rest of the continent, bringing in artists who actualize social change, her ambition is to "embrace the shared histories and narratives of South Africa with other parts of the continent and the world."Under her directorship, 26 new prominent artists, both established and emerging, from various parts of the Africa and beyond have joined Goodman Gallery. These includes Ghada Amer, Candice Breitz, Kudzanai Chiurai, Mounir Fatmi, Alfredo Jaar, Liza Lou, Hank Willis Thomas, Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin.

Magnox Ltd

Magnox Ltd is a nuclear decommissioning Site Licence Company controlled by Cavendish Fluor Partnership. It operated under contract for the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, a government body set up to deal with the nuclear legacy under the Energy Act 2004. In September 2019, it became a direct subsidiary of the NDA. Magnox Ltd is responsible for the decommissioning of ten Magnox nuclear power stations and two former research facilities in the United Kingdom; the twelve sites are located at Berkeley, Chapelcross, Dungeness A, Hinkley Point A, Hunterston A, Sizewell A, Wylfa and Winfrith. All the sites have ceased production. In addition, as part of the Trawsfynydd unit, Magnox Ltd operates a hydro-electric power station at Maentwrog; the only Magnox power station in the United Kingdom not managed by Magnox Ltd is Calder Hall, part of the Sellafield site and is controlled by Sellafield Ltd. Magnox Ltd is the successor company to Magnox Electric, created in 1996 to take ownership of the Magnox assets from'Nuclear Electric' and'Scottish Nuclear'.

The remaining nuclear power stations of these two companies, seven advanced gas-cooled reactor sites and one pressurized water reactor site, were transferred to a separate company,'British Energy', privatised in 1996. In January 1998, Magnox Electric came under the control of another government-owned company,'British Nuclear Fuels', operating as'BNFL Magnox Generation'. Following the reorganisation of the UK nuclear industry in 2005 ownership of BNFL's Magnox sites transferred to the newly created'Nuclear Decommissioning Authority'. BNFL created a new subsidiary,'Reactor Sites Management Company', to manage and operate Magnox Electric on behalf of the NDA. In June 2007, BNFL sold. On 1 October 2008, Magnox Electric was split into two companies based on the locations of the sites. Magnox North became the operator of Chapelcross, Hunterston A, Oldbury and Wylfa. Magnox South became and operator of Berkeley, Dungeness, Hinkley Point A and Sizewell A. Both companies continued to be managed by RSMC.

In January 2011, to reduce costs and to help extend best practices across all sites, it was decided to reverse the split with Magnox North and Magnox South recombining as Magnox Ltd. In 2015, the Harwell and Winfrith sites managed by Research Sites Restoration Limited were brought under the management of Magnox Ltd. In 2017, the NDA decided to terminate the contract with Cavendish Fluor Partnership believing a simplified approach would provide a more efficient decommissioning programme. Magnox Ltd became a subsidiary of the NDA on 3 September 2019. In February 2018, the UK parliament's Public Accounts Committee concluded that the NDA had "dramatically under-estimated" costs and "completely failed" in the procurement and management of the contract, one of the highest value contracts let by the government. An independent inquiry into the deal was set up. Nuclear power in the United Kingdom Official website
