Community school (England and Wales)

A community school in England and Wales is a type of state-funded school in which the local education authority employs the school's staff, is responsible for the school's admissions and owns the school's estate. In the mid-19th century, government involvement in schooling consisted of annual grants to the National Society for Promoting Religious Education and the British and Foreign School Society to support the "voluntary schools" that they ran, monitoring inspections of these schools; the Elementary Education Act 1870 imposed stricter standards on schools, provided for the setting up of locally elected school boards in boroughs and parishes across England and Wales, empowered to set up elementary-level board schools where voluntary provision was insufficient. A number of voluntary schools those of the BFSS, chose to become board schools. Parents were still required to pay fees; the Education Act 1902 abolished school boards, transferring their functions to counties and boroughs acting as local education authorities.

The board schools were thus renamed county schools. The act introduced county secondary schools, which were expanded during the 20th century; the schools were renamed community schools in the School Standards and Framework Act 1998. In 2008 61% of the state-funded primary and secondary schools in England were community schools.

Yongin Wangsanli Jiseongmyo

Known as the Yongin Wangsanli Dolmens, the Yongin Wangsanli Jiseongmyo are two single-chamber megalithic tombs from the Bronze Age located in Mohyeon-eup, Yongin-si, Gyeonggi-do, South Korea. Called Mohyeon Jiseongmyo, the name was changed to its current state under Gyeonggi-do Decree No. 2016-205 on November 8, 2016. The dolmens were designated as Gyeonggi-do Monument No. 22 in 1974 for their historical value. The Wangsanli Dolmens are the largest and most well-preserved in all of Gyeonggi-do, showing the intricate architectural innovations of the Bronze Age. Known as goindol in Korean, a dolmen is a tomb consisting of large megaliths making up a single-chamber for the dead. Along with the seokgwanmyo, it is one of the most prominent tomb structures of the Bronze Age; the Korean peninsula has one of the most dolmens in the world with 40,000 located all over the region. There are two types of dolmens in this area, which are classified depending on the shapes and particular arrangements of the vertical megaliths and the'table': the Northern style and the Southern style.

The Wangsanli Dolmens are Northern style dolmens, meaning that they were made by 1) raising the vertical megaliths first to make a stone chamber, 2) placing the corpse in the chamber, 3) putting the horizontal stone on top. Southern style dolmens are made in a similar way, except the vertical megaliths are buried under the ground instead of being exposed. Although a total of twelve dolmens have been discovered in the Wangsanli region, as of 2019, only two have been examined in depth: the Wangsanli Jiseongmyo; the best-preserved dolmen has a roof stone with the length of 5.5 meters, width of 4.4 meters, thickness of 1 meter. There are three upright stones that are supporting the top, with an average height of 80 cm between them. Compared to the top stone, the sizes of the vertical megaliths are unusually small. Additionally, the outside of the stone chamber is half-buried in soil, implying that the architects piled additional earth near the dolmen to provide additional protection from outside forces.

It was inferred that the dolmen was composed of four vertical megaliths, but one had disappeared due to unknown circumstances. The second dolmen has a smaller top stone, with a length of 4.4 meters. Compared to the first dolmen, it is in a state of worse preservation. Grave goods that have been discovered include stone knives and stone arrowheads. Nearby natural monuments include the Gwangju mountain range in the east and the Gyeongancheon in the north. To the west lies the Global Campus of the Hankuk University of Foreign Studies as well as the Hankuk Academy of Foreign Studies, a private boarding school

Cisco IOS XR

IOS XR is a train of Cisco Systems' deployed Internetworking Operating System, used on their high-end Network Converging System, carrier-grade routers such as the CRS series, 12000 series, ASR9000 series. According to Cisco's product literature, IOS XR shares little infrastructure with the other IOS trains, is instead built upon a "preemptive, memory protected, microkernel-based operating system"; the microkernel was provided by QNX. IOS XR aims to provide the following advantages over the earlier IOS trains: Improved high availability Better scalability for large hardware configurations A package based software distribution model The ability to install package upgrades and patches A web-based GUI for system management IOS XR was announced along with the CRS-1 in May 2004; the first available version was 2.0. The most recent release is version 6.5.3, released in March 2019. Other significant releases include the following. 3.2 – first available version for the 12000 router series 3.9 – first available version for the ASR9000 series 5.0 – first available version for the NCS6000 series, based upon a Linux kernel 6.1.1 - Introduces support for the 64-bit Linux-based IOS XR operating system on ASR9000 series Example BGP configuration for both IOS and IOS XR.
