SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Coalville

Coalville is an industrial town in North West Leicestershire, East Midlands England, with a population at the 2011 census of 34,575. It lies on the A511 trunk road between Leicester and Burton upon Trent, close to junction 22 of the M1 motorway where the A511 meets the A50 between Ashby-de-la-Zouch and Leicester, it borders the upland area of Charnwood Forest to the east of the town. Coalville is twinned with Romans-sur-Isère in southeastern France. Coalville is a product of the Industrial Revolution; as its name indicates, it is a former coal mining town and was a centre of the coal-mining district of north Leicestershire. It has been suggested that the name may derive from the name of the house belonging to the founder of Whitwick Colliery:'Coalville House'. However, conclusive evidence is a report in the Leicester Chronicle of 16 November 1833:'Owing to the traffic, produced by the Railway and New Collieries on Whitwick Waste, land which 20 years ago would not have fetched £20 per acre, is now selling in lots at from £400 to £500 per acre, for building upon.

The high chimneys, numerous erections upon the spot, give the neighbourhood quite an improved appearance. We hear it is intended to call this new colony "COALVILLE" - an appropriate name.' In the early nineteenth century, the area now known as Coalville was little more than a track known as Long Lane, which ran east-west, stretching between two turnpikes and Hoo Ash. Long Lane divided the parishes of Swannington and Whitwick from the parishes of Snibston and Ibstock. Hugglescote and Donington-le-Heath were part of Ibstock parish until 1878. A north-south track or lane stretching from Whitwick to Hugglescote crossed Long Lane, at the point where the clock tower war memorial now stands; this track or lane is now Belvoir Road. The Red House, an eighteenth-century building, close to this cross-roads, was one of few buildings standing. Samuel Fisher, writing his memoirs at the end of the nineteenth century, described what the area looked like in 1832. Standing close to the position of the present-day clock tower, Fisher describes how, on looking down Long Lane towards Ashby, "we see a large tract of waste on both sides of the road, still traceable, covered with gorse-bushes, blackberry brambles, etc. with not a single house on either side of the way" until arriving at the Hoo Ash turnpike.

Looking toward Hugglescote, "we see a magnificently timbered lane without a single house, with the exception of White Leys Farm and the Gate Inn on the Ashby Turnpike". In the direction of Bardon, there were no houses until arriving at a group of five or six cottages on the corner of what is now Whitwick Road and Hotel Street, in the direction of Whitwick there was nothing apart from a smithy and a carpenter's shop, the houses of these tradesmen; these would have stood on the site of. From this wilderness emerged the modern town of Coalville, on a rapid scale, following the advent of deep coal mining. Despite its emergence as one of the largest towns in Leicestershire, Coalville's history was not well documented until the establishment of historical societies in the 1980s, though some information had been put on record by a few independent local historians. In more recent years, a wealth of material charting the town's history has been published through the combined efforts of the Coalville 150 Group and the Coalville Historical Society and in 2006, these two groups amalgamated to form the Coalville Heritage Society.

Coal has been mined in the area since the medieval period, a heritage traceable in the place name Coleorton, examples of mine workings from these times can be found on the Hough Mill site at Swannington near the Califat Colliery site. A life-sized horse gin has been built on the Hough Mill site and craters can be seen in the ground, where the medieval villagers dug out their allocation of coal; the seam is at ground level in Swannington, but gets deeper between Swannington and the deepest reserves at Bagworth. Deep coal mining was pioneered by local engineer William Stenson who sank the Long Lane Colliery on a relative's farm land in the 1820s. In doing so, Stenson ignored an old miner's dictum of the day, "No coal below stone", sank his shaft through a layer of'Greenstone' or'Whinstone' to the coal below; this opened up the'concealed coalfield.' This was followed by the mine at Snibston, by George Stephenson in the early 1830s, Stephenson was responsible for the creation of the Leicester and Swannington Railway at the same time.

Quarrying and engineering industries, such as railway wagon production grew in the town during the 19th century. Stenson is sometimes described as'the Father of Coalville'. Coal-mining came to an end in Coalville during the 1980s. Six collieries – Snibston, Whitwick, South Leicester and Bagworth – closed in and around Coalville in an eight-year period from 1983 to 1991, resulting in about five thousand men being made redundant; the disused colliery at Snibston was regenerated into Snibston Discovery Park but controversially closed in 2015 by Leicestershire County Council. The area occupied by Whitwick Colliery has been redeveloped as the Whitwick Business Park and which incorporates a Morrison's supermarket. There is a small memorial garden here, established in memory of 35 men who died in the Whitwick Colliery Disaster of 1898, which occurred as a re

Fonazei o kleftis

Fonazei o kleftis or Fonazi o kleftis is a 1965 Greek drama film directed and written by Giannis Dalianidis and starring Dinos Iliopoulos, Rena Vlachopoulou, Dionysis Papagiannopoulos and Andreas Douzos. It was filmed in the same year. Lia is married to retired general Solon Karaleon, now chairman of a public organization responsible for military supplies, her brother Antonis is working in the organization and has made many embezzlements there along with other employees. To justify the luxurious life of her brother and Antonis pretend that he is financially supported by a wealthy uncle of them who lives in the US, which in reality is poor. Someday, this uncle sends a letter revealing that he is not rich, to Lia, received by Solon but he doesn't open it in order to give it to Lia, her brother tries to retrieve it but Solon leaves to his home with the letter in his wallet. Arriving home it is revealed he lost his wallet on a street and Lia is calmed down that the fraud is not revealed. Solon heads towards the police department to report the loss.

Intermittently, Timoleon "Timos" Lamprou, a honest and stubborn accountant who loses his job due to his character, finds the wallet and goes to Lia's home to return it. He refuses to give the letter to Lia as the letter is firstly directed to Solon Karaleon house and secondly in person is addressed to Lia. So Timos refuses to give it to Lia which makes her furious and violent as she attempts to throw an ashtray to him. Before she throws the ashtray, Solon is given the letter and the wallet by Timos. Solon gives the letter to Lia but she refuses to take it, wanting not to draw attention on her persistence to have it. So, Solon puts it in his coat and starts taking with Timos, who reveals he was fired many times due to not being keen to cooperate with his employers to fraud the tax services. In the meantime, Lia brings Solon his robe and takes the coat with the letter, something that relieves her. Solon suggests hiring Timos in the organization he presides over.

Mister Magic

Mister Magic is the fourth album by jazz saxophonist Grover Washington Jr. released in February 1975. The album topped both the jazz albums chart and peaked at number ten on the pop chart. Reviewing for The Village Voice in 1975, Robert Christgau found the album "functional" and satisfactory for a commercially successful jazz album: "Washington plays a warm tenor in the pop jazz tradition of Gene Ammons, but the rhythm section percolates danceably, the result is sexy background music only superficially marred by Bob James's strings."In a retrospective review for Allmusic, Scott Yanow gave the album five out of five stars and said that it is "one of Grover Washington Jr.'s best-loved recordings and considered a classic of r&bish jazz." He found Washington to be in "particularly creative form" and called James' arrangements "colorful if somewhat commercial".
