Club Brugge KV

Club Brugge Koninklijke Voetbalvereniging referred to as just Club Brugge, or Club Bruges in English, is a football club based in Bruges in Belgium. It was founded in 1891 and its home ground is the Jan Breydel Stadium, which has a capacity of 29,062. One of the most decorated clubs in Belgian football, the club have been crowned Belgian league champions 15 times, second only to major rivals Anderlecht, it shares the Jan Breydel Stadium with city rival Cercle Brugge, with whom they contest the Bruges derby. Throughout its long history, Club Brugge has enjoyed much European football success, reaching two European finals and two European semi-finals. Club Brugge is the only Belgian club to have played the final of the European Cup so far, losing to Liverpool in the final of the 1978 season, they lost in the 1976 UEFA Cup Final to the same opponents. Club Brugge holds the European record number of consecutive participations in the UEFA Europa League, the record number of Belgian Cups, the record number of Belgian Super Cups.

In 1890, students from the Catholic school Broeders Xaverianen and the neutral school Koninklijk Atheneum joined together to form the Brugsche Football Club. The former students christened the club's founding by establishing the Latin motto'mens sana in corpore sano'. A year on 13 November 1891, the club was re-created under Brugsche FC, this is now seen as the official foundation of the current Club Brugge In 1892, an official board was installed at the club to oversee all operations and team decisions. In 1895, the national athletics sports union was founded, predecessor of the national football association, under the name UBSSA. Financial difficulties the following year forced the club to leave the UBSSA and soon after, Football Club Brugeois were formed by breakaway club members; the two sides were reunited in 1897 under the French name of Football Club Brugeois. In 1914, FC Brugeois reached their first Belgian Cup final, but lost 2–1 to Union SG. Six years the club claimed their first trophy, by winning the Belgian First Division during the 1919–20 season.

They celebrated by changing their title to Royal FC Brugeois – with their regal status now reflected in their modern prefix KV, standing for Koninklijke Vereniging. Only eight years though, the club was relegated to the Belgian Second Division for the first time in their history following a relegation play-off. Further lean times followed the relegation in 1928, as they spent much of the 1940s and 1950s in the second division of Belgian football. Following the 1958–59 season, the club earned promotion back to the First Division and have not been relegated since; the club were able to add to their trophy cabinet in 1968, winning the first of their record 11 Belgian Cup titles for the first time after defeating Beerschot AC 7–6 in a penalty-shootout after a 1–1 draw. The club enjoyed their most success under legendary Austrian manager Ernst Happel as he led the club to three straight league championships from 1975–76 to 1977–78 and a Belgian Cup victory in 1976–77. Happel guided Club Brugge to their first European final, reaching the 1976 UEFA Cup Final.

Over the two-legged final against English giants Liverpool, Club Brugge fell 3–4 on aggregate. Two years Brugge again met Liverpool in a European final, this time in the 1978 European Cup Final at Wembley, becoming the first Belgian club to reach the final of the competition. Brugge fell to a lone second-half goal from Kenny Dalglish as Liverpool won their second European Cup and third European trophy in succession. Following the cup final loss to Liverpool, Happel left Club Brugge and would lead Netherlands that summer to the final of the 1978 FIFA World Cup. 1992: First goal scorer in the Champions LeagueDaniel Amokachi is the first goal scorer in the Champions League. He scored against CSKA Moscow. 2019: UEFA Champions LeagueAs the first Belgian team to qualify for the UEFA Champions League through the non-champion-path, Club Brugge gets a back-to-back entry to the biggest European competition. The club don a blue home kit as has been traditional through their history. Away from home they wear a red strip.

The club's current kit supplier is Macron. The club's original home in the Sint-Andries district of Bruges was known as the Rattenplein since it was owned by the local fox terrier club, who used it for another imported English pastime: rat baiting; this non-UEFA affiliated ` sport' involved getting dogs to kill rats. In 1911, the team moved to a new ground, called De Klokke, renamed the Albert Dyserynckstadion after the sudden death of Club Brugge chairman Albert Dyserynck, their current stadium, since 1975, was rebranded in honour of local butcher and revolutionary Jan Breydel in 1998. Breydel led a rising against the city's French overlords in the 1300s; the venue – which Club Brugge share with local rivals Cercle Brugge – was named the Olympiastadion. In November 2016, the club broke ground on a new training complex at Westkapelle, including four training pitches and an additional training centre for the senior squad plus the U21 and U19 teams. Club Brugge is the most supported club in Belgium.

It has fans all over the country. Attendances are high; the Jan Breydel Stadium is so

Sultamicillin

Sultamicillin, sold under the brand name Unasyn among others, is an oral form of the antibiotic combination ampicillin/sulbactam. It contains esterified sulbactam; the pharmacokinetic properties of sultamicillin are improved compared to a combination of ampicillin and sulbactam. Sultamicillin decreases the chances of diarrhea and dysentery; the inclusion of sulbactam extends ampicillin's spectrum of action to beta-lactamase producing strains of bacteria. Oral sulbactam with parenteral form provides a regimen of continuous sulbactam therapy throughout the treatment, resulting in better clinical results, it was patented in 1979 and approved for medical use in 1987. Medical uses for sultamicillin include: Skin and soft tissue infections - furuncles, cellulitis, impetigo contagiosa, diabetic foot ulcers and abscesses caused by Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes. Upper respiratory tract infections - pharyngitis and tonsillitis caused by S. pyogenes and S. aureus. Acute and chronic sinusitis caused by S. pneumoniae, H. influenzae and S. progenies.

Otitis media suppurative otis media, with or without mastoiditis antrum. Lower respiratory tract infections - bacterial pneumonias, bronchiectasis caused by S. pneumoniae, H. influenzae, Staphylococcus aureus and S. progenies. Acute exacerbations of COPD. Urinary tract infections - pyelonephritis, cystitis caused by Escherichia coli, Proteus mirabilis, Klebsiella and Staphylococcus aureus. Surgical infections - prophylaxis and treatment of surgical site infections, peri-operative prophylaxis in orthopaedic and cardiovascular surgery. Gynecological infections - Caused by beta-lactamase producing strains of E. coli and Bacteroides sp.. Infections of the gastrointestinal tract - Bacterial esophagitis, treatment of H. pylori infections as a part of MDT in ulcer management. Sultamicillin is a mutual prodrug of sulbactam. Ampicillin, a semi-synthetic orally active broad spectrum antibiotic, is linked via a methylene group with a beta-lactamase inhibitor. Sultamicillin is chemically oxymethyl penicillinate sulfone ester of ampicillin.

After absorption, sultamicillin releases ampicillin and sulbactam into the system, so all the antibacterial efficacy of sultamicillin is due to ampicillin and sulbactam. Ampicillin exerts antibacterial activity against sensitive organisms by inhibiting biosynthesis of cell wall mucopeptide where as sulbactam irreversibly inhibits most important beta-lactamases that occur in resistant strains

2000 AIHL season

The 2000 AIHL season was the inaugural season of the Australian Ice Hockey League, the first semi-pro national ice hockey league in Australian history. The Sydney Bears finished first after the regular season but lost the championship final to the Adelaide Avalanche 5–6 in a shootout. Paul Lawson of the Adelaide Avalanche top scored in the regular season; the maiden regular season featured all three founding teams, Adelaide Avalanche, Canberra Knights and the Sydney Bears, playing in a round-robin format. The top two teams at the conclusion of the regular season would qualify to play a single head-to-head final. Following the regular season the Avalanche and the Bears competed in the single game final held at Macquarie Ice Rink. Adelaide won the game 6-5 in a shootout after coming from two goals behind late in the third period to level the match in regulation time; the Bears controlled the match in the first two periods before a controversial five minute major penalty late in the game to the Bears saw Adelaide pull goaltender Eric Lien and score two power play goals

Fran├žois Vase

The François Vase is a large Attic volute krater decorated in the black-figure style. It was inspired by earlier bronze vases, it was used for wine. A milestone in the development of ancient Greek pottery due to the drawing style used as well as the combination of related stories depicted in the numerous friezes, it is dated to circa 570/560 BCE; the Francois Vase was discovered in 1844 in Chiusi where an Etruscan tomb in the necropolis of Fonte Rotella was found located in central Italy. It was named after its discoverer Alessandro François, it is now in the Museo Archeologico at Florence, it remains uncertain whether the krater was used in Greece or in Etruria, whether the handles were broken and repaired in Greece or in Etruria. The François Vase was made for a symposium given by a member of an aristocratic family in Solonian Athens broken and, after being repaired, was sent to Etruria as an instance of elite-gift exchange, it bears the inscriptions "Ergotimos mepoiesen" and "Kleitias megraphsen", meaning "Ergotimos made me" and "Kleitias painted me".

It depicts 270 figures, 121 of which have accompanying inscriptions, unusual for so many to be identified. In 1900 the vase was smashed into 638 pieces by a museum guard by hurling a wooden stool against the protective glass, it was restored by Pietro Zei in 1902, followed by a second reconstruction in 1973 incorporating missing pieces. The uppermost frieze, on the neck of the krater, depicts on side A the Calydonian Boar Hunt, including the heroes Meleager and Atalanta; the scene is flanked by two sphinxes which are separated from it by a band of lotus blossoms and palmettes. On the other side of the vessel, this zone features the dance of Athenian youths led by Theseus, playing the lyre, standing opposite Ariadne and her nurse; the second band on side A shows the chariot race, part of the funeral games for Patroclus, instituted by his lover Achilles, in the last year of the Trojan War. Here, Achilles is standing in front of a bronze tripod, which would have been one of the prizes, while the participants include the Greek heroes Diomedes and Odysseus.

On side B, the painted scene depicts a battle of the Centaurs. The most famous of these conflicts took place at the wedding party of Pirithous and Hippodamia, depicted here, as the hero Theseus is found among the combatants, a friend of Pirithous who himself was not a Lapith, but said to be among the wedding guests; the scene includes the demise of the Lapith hero Caeneus. The third frieze on both sides, the highest and most prominent one because of its location on the top of the body vessel, depicts the procession of the gods to the wedding of Peleus and Thetis; because of its large number of figures, the procession is a suitable topic to decorate the long band. The end of the procession shows Peleus between an altar and the house where Thetis can be seen sitting inside, he is greeting his teacher, the centaur Chiron, heading the procession together with the divine messenger Iris, followed by many other deities. The fourth frieze on side A depicts the ambush of Troilus by Achilles. Side B shows the return of Hephaestus to Olympus.

The fifth frieze shows sphinxes and griffins flanking lotus blossom and palmettes ornaments and panthers and lions attacking bulls, a boar, a deer. On the foot of the vessel, there is on both sides a depiction of the battle between the Pygmies and the cranes; the handles are decorated as well, showing on their outer sides the so-called Mistress of Animals above a vignette showing Ajax carrying the dead Achilles. The fields on the inner sides of the handles above the rim of the pot each feature a Gorgon in motion; the wedding of Peleus and Thetis provides the central image on another signed Athenian pot, the Francois vase made by Kleitias and Ergotimos. Here only one of the six friezes which cover this pot is an animal frieze, and, quite remote in style from Corinthian work. All the others show episodes from myth, labels are copiously used for inanimate objects such as fountains and seats. With the combination of related stories and the unique drawing style by kleitas, this pot constitutes something new in Athenian painting.

The scenes on this pot include both crucial moments in stories, including when Peleus and Meleager are about to spear the Calydonian boar. The moments where the crucial action is past with the dance of the Athenian maidens and youths freed from the Minotaur or the marriage of Peleus and Thetis; as well as Achilles' pursuit of Troilos in the second frieze up. Past or future episodes are frequent in the friezes; the body of Antaios beneath the boar seems to allude to the death of the man who taunted Atalanta, seen here just behind Meleager, with not hunting in a manly enough way. A fountain house, a dropped water jar, the running figure of Polyxena signal the circumstances in which Achilles ambushing Troilos, but the gods around the fountain house seem to allude to Achilles' subsequent killing of Troilos in a sanctuary; the various scenes on the pot seem to be held together by two sorts of association. On one hand there are a set of scenes which trace the story of the house of Peleus from his participation in the hunt for the

River Elwy

The River Elwy is a river in Wales forming a tributary to the River Clwyd. The source of the river is sometimes said to be on the northern flank of Moel Seisiog, south-east of Llanrwst, at Ordnance Survey grid reference SH 853593; however the river only receives the name Elwy at the village of Llangernyw, where three rivers, Afon Cledwen, Afon Collen and Afon Gallen, meet to form the Elwy. It flows eastwards through Llanfair Talhaiarn and a few miles downstream from this village it is joined by a tributary, the River Aled which has its source in Llyn Aled. After passing through Bont-newydd, the river flows through St. Asaph, it joins the River Clwyd about half way between St. Asaph and Rhuddlan, the waters of the two rivers can be seen flowing side by side for several miles. A number of caves along the lower valley of the Elwy are of great archaeological interest and are considered one of the most important groups of Palaeolithic and caves and rock shelters in Britain. In particular Pontnewydd Cave contained remains of Neanderthal man and is the most north-westerly site at which Neanderthal remains have been found.

The Elwy is well known for its sea trout fishing, has a run of Atlantic Salmon. Rhyl and St Asaph Angling Association control 20 miles of river fishing on the rivers Elwy and Aled. In recent years including the recent 2017 season there have been good reported catches of wild brown trout most of which are returned unharmed on a voluntary catch and release system. In 2017 a wild trout weighing 5½ lbs was caught and released on a river Elwy beat owned by the angling association.
