Coalescence (physics)

Coalescence is the process by which two or more droplets, bubbles or particles merge during contact to form a single daughter droplet, bubble or particle. It can take place in many processes. For example, it is seen in the formation of raindrops as well as star formation. In meteorology, its role is crucial in the formation of rain; as droplets are carried by the updrafts and downdrafts in a cloud, they collide and coalesce to form larger droplets. When the droplets become too large to be sustained on the air currents, they begin to fall as rain. Adding to this process, the cloud may be seeded with ice from higher altitudes, either via the cloud tops reaching −40 °C, or via the cloud being seeded by ice from cirrus clouds. In cloud physics the main mechanism of collision is the different terminal velocity between the droplets; the terminal velocity is a function of the droplet size. The other factors that determine the collision rate are turbulence.

Ve (Arabic letter)

Ve ڤ is a letter of the Arabic-based Central Kurdish, Wakhi, Karakhanid alphabets derived from the Arabic letter fāʾ with two additional dots. It represents the sound /v/ in the aforementioned uses, it is sometimes used in Arabic language to write names and loanwords with the phoneme /v/, such as ڤولڤو volvo and ڤيينا viyennā, but rather described, for example, in Egyptian Arabic, it is called fe be-talāt noʾaṭ. It is frequently used in Israel for transcribing names that have a /v/ sound into Arabic, used on Israel's street plates, on signs and labels. In Jawi script, used for Malay language, ڤ stands for /p/; the character is mapped in Unicode under position U+06A4. The Maghrebi style, used in Northwestern Africa, the dots moved underneath, because it is based on the other style of fāʼ: In Tunisian and in Algerian, is used for /ɡ/, such as in names of places or persons containing a voiced velar stop, as in Gafsa or Guelma. If the usage of that letter is not possible for technical restrictions, qāf is used instead.

In Arabic script representations of the Chechen language, ڨ is used to represent the uvular ejective /q'/. ﭖ - Pe ﭺ - Che گ - Gaf ژ - Zhe ۋ - Ve

Overnight Angels

Overnight Angels is the third studio album by Ian Hunter, released on May 1977 by Columbia Records. After the poor sales of his previous album, Hunter's apparent aim for this record was to re-emphasise faster songs with more of a rock feel, he recruited the well-regarded Roy Thomas Baker to produce. However, the album received mixed reviews, Columbia Records refused to release it in the US, according to Hunter because he had just fired his manager. Columbia told Hunter they would release it once he had a manager and tour in place to support the album; the release didn't occur however as Hunter left the label but the album did become available as an import when Hunter's next album became a minor hit. Hunter disavowed the album and described it as a "mistake". Hunter went on record as stating he disliked the album because he felt the album was forced and, in particular, his vocals which he felt he sang in too high a register; the song "England Rocks" would become one of his best-known songs, retitled "Cleveland Rocks" on Hunter's next tour, re-recorded with the new title for his next album.

Joe Elliott's Down'n' Outz covered the songs "Golden Opportunity", "Overnight Angels" and "England Rocks" on their 2010 album My ReGeneration. All songs written by Ian Hunter except where noted "Golden Opportunity" – 4:31 "Shallow Crystals" – 3:58 "Overnight Angels" – 5:12 "Broadway" – 3:46 "Justice of the Peace" – 3:01 " Silver Dime" – 4:34 "Wild'N Free" – 3:08 "The Ballad of Little Star" – 2:32 "To Love a Woman" – 3:54 "England Rocks" – 2:53 Ian Hunter - lead and harmony vocals, rhythm guitar, piano Earl Slick - lead and slide guitars Peter Oxendale - keyboards Rob Rawlinson - bass, harmony vocals Dennis Elliott - drums Miller Anderson - harmony vocals Lem Lubin - harmony vocals Roy Thomas Baker - percussion Mastered by George Marino at Sterling Sound, NYC

Panko Brashnarov

Panko Brashnarov was a revolutionary and member of the left wing of the Internal Macedonian-Adrianople Revolutionary Organization and IMRO later. As with many other IMARO members of the time, historians from North Macedonia consider him an ethnic Macedonian, whereas historians in Bulgaria consider him a Bulgarian; however such Macedonian activists, who came from the IMARO and the IMRO never managed to get rid of their strong pro-Bulgarian bias. He was born in Veles in the Kosovo Vilayet of the Ottoman Empire where he graduated from Bulgarian Exarchate's school. Brashnarov graduated from the Bulgarian pedagogical school in Skopje. In 1903 he took part in the Ilinden Uprising. In 1908 he joined the People's Federative Party. In 1903-1913 Brashnarov worked as Bulgarian teacher. In 1914-1915 he completed a two-year higher educational course in Plovdiv, he was mobilized in the Bulgarian army during the First World War and participated in the battles of Doiran. In 1919, he joined the Yugoslav Communist Party.

In 1925 in Vienna, Brashnarov was elected as one of the leaders of Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization. Because of his political convictions, he was sentenced to seven years in prison in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia. After his release he remained politically passive; when Bulgaria annexed Vardar Banovina in 1941, he was one of the founders of the Bulgarian Action Committees Until 1943, Brashnarov worked again as a Bulgarian teacher. He became politically active again and joined the Communist partizan's movement fighting against the Axis Powers. On 2 August 1944, the Antifascist assembly of the national liberation of Macedonia took place at the St. Prohor Pčinjski monastery. Brashnarov served as the first speaker; the modern Macedonian state was proclaimed as a federal state within Josip Broz Tito's Yugoslavia, receiving recognition from the Allies. From the start of the new Yugoslavia, the authorities organised frequent purges and trials of Macedonian communists and non-party people were charged with autonomist deviation.

Many of the former left-wing IMRO government officials were purged from their positions isolated, imprisoned or executed on various charges including pro-Bulgarian leanings, demands for greater or complete independence of Yugoslav Macedonia, collaboration with the Cominform after the Tito-Stalin split in 1948, forming of conspirative political groups or organisations, demands for greater democracy and the like. In 1948, being disappointed by the policy of the authorities, Brashnarov complained of it in letters to Joseph Stalin and to Georgi Dimitrov, he did so together with Pavel Shatev. As a result, he was arrested in 1950 and imprisoned in Goli Otok labor camp where he died the following year.
