Cumberland School of Law

Cumberland Law School is unrelated to the University of the Cumberlands in Williamsburg, is no longer a part of Cumberland University in Lebanon, Tennessee. Cumberland School of Law is an ABA accredited law school at Samford University in Birmingham, United States. Founded in 1847 at Cumberland University in Lebanon, Tennessee, it is the 11th oldest law school in the United States and has more than 11,000 graduates, its alumni include two United States Supreme Court Justices. S. representatives. The school offers two degree programs: the 90-hour Juris Doctor, the Master of Comparative Law, designed to educate foreign lawyers in the basic legal principles of the United States; the school offers eight dual-degree programs and a Master of Laws program with concentrations in financial service regulatory compliance, health law and policy, higher education law and compliance, legal project management. This summary is based on From Maverick to Mainstream, a review of Cumberland's history and the development of the American legal education system.

Langum and Walthall summarize the history of Cumberland Law School as: From its local, Tennessee origins in 1847, Cumberland...emerged as a premier law school with a national status. It excelled in faculty, teaching methodology, numbers of students. Following the American Civil War, Cumberland rebuilt itself and succeeded on a grand scale with its single-year curriculum. Cumberland School of Law was founded on July 29, 1847 in Lebanon, Tennessee at Cumberland University. At the end of 1847, there were 15 law schools in the United States. Prior to the law school's official founding, Cumberland University facilitated the study of law and admitted a diverse student body, evidenced by graduates such as George W. Harkins, a Choctaw chief, who received a law degree from Cumberland and became a judge in 1834. Prior to the founding of the United States' first law schools, the primary means for a legal education was apprenticeship. Establishing law schools was difficult in the early 19th century. Harvard was only able to reestablish its law school in 1829 and Yale in 1826.

By 1859 Cumberland and the University of Virginia School of Law were the three largest law schools in the United States. A year 1860, only 21 university law schools existed in the country, and, in no school did the curriculum extend beyond two years. During the Antebellum years, Cumberland enjoyed success. Nathan Green, Jr. son of professor Nathan Green, Sr. stated that Cumberland enjoyed "the highest degree of prosperity", with a beautiful 20-acre campus, picturesque trees and fences, fine architecture. Cumberland's first graduate Paine Page Prim became chief justice of the Oregon Supreme Court. Students were taught through reading treatises two hours worth of recitations each morning, a mandatory moot court program. Caruthers considered the Socratic Method a necessity; the cost was $50 a session and a $5 "contingent fee". After the Civil War, this treatise method, the legal formalism of the school's approach, Nathan Green Jr.'s unwillingness to make changes, were all considered reasons for Cumberland's drift out of the mainstream.

At the start of the American Civil War, the campus split within a week. Nathan Green Jr.'s father, a law professor, went home, but in fear of arrest, Abraham Caruthers fled to Marietta, where he died a year later. During the war, professors John Carter and Nathan Green, Jr. fought as Confederate officers. Carter was killed; the campus did not. The trees were cut down and fences destroyed and burned; the Confederate Army burned the University buildings because a Confederate major was offended that Black Union soldiers had used them as barracks. The law school began the slow process of rebuilding. In July 1866, Cumberland adopted the image of the phoenix, the mythological Egyptian bird, reborn from its own ashes; the new motto was E Cineribus Resurgo or "I rise from the ashes."In September 1865 classes resumed with 11 students, which soon grew to 20. The 1865 class included enemies only a few months earlier. Nathan Green, Jr. kept the school together until Henry Cooper, a circuit judge, Andrew B. Martin, Robert L. Caruthers, brother of deceased founder Abraham Caruthers, joined the faculty.

Robert Caruthers had served as the state attorney general and had been elected Governor of Tennessee during the war in 1863, but was never inaugurated. In 1873 Robert Caruthers purchased Corona Hall from the Corona Institute for Women for $10,000, which he donated to the University for use by the law school; the destruction of the campus and the devastation of war had impoverished the school, it was 15 years before it saw students enter from outside the South, when a student from Illinois and a member of the Choctaw Nation enrolled at Cumberland. But there were few students from outside of the defeated Southern states, which Langum and Walthall claim underscored "how the Civil War blighted Cumberland."Robert Caruthers persisted, despite the setbacks, in 1878 Caruthers Hall was dedicated in his honor. This new school replaced Corona Hall; the new hall had "excellent acoustics and hard seats" and is described as a: splendid structure, built after the latest architectural style, is nearly one hundred feet from base to spire, contains two recitation rooms for the Law Department, two Society Halls, a Library, a chapel whose sea

The Town House (Los Angeles)

The Town House is a large former hotel property built in 1929 on Wilshire Boulevard, adjacent to Lafayette Park in the Westlake district of Los Angeles, California. After a long career as a hotel it operates today as low income housing; the Town House was developed by oil magnate Edward Doheny as one of the most luxurious apartment-hotels in Southern California. Designed by Norman W. Alpaugh, built at a cost of $3 million, it opened on September 11, 1929, it is a late example of the Beaux Arts style, with a brick and terra cotta facade with classical detailing. The building was converted to operate as a hotel in 1937, featuring one of the most glamorous bars in the city, the Zebra Room, with interiors by noted designer Wayne McAllister. Conrad Hilton bought the Town House in 1942, paying owner Arnold Kirkeby $150,000 cash and assuming $830,000 of debt. Elizabeth Taylor celebrated her first marriage, to Hilton heir Conrad Hilton, Jr. at the hotel in 1950. The Town House became the Sheraton-Town House.

In 1958, Sheraton renamed the hotel the Sheraton-West Hotel. Sheraton sold the hotel to the Kyo-Ya group in 1972. In 1978 the hotel's name reverted to the Sheraton-Town House. From the 1960s through the 1980s, the area around Lafayette Park became less desirable and more dangerous and after the 1992 Los Angeles Riots, the hotel closed in February 1993, it was converted and reopened in 2001 as low-income housing. The Town House was designated a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument in 1994 and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, in 1997. Other registered historic sites within one block of the Town House include the Bryson Apartment Hotel, Bullocks Wilshire, the Felipe de Neve branch of the Los Angeles Public Library system, the Granada Shoppes and Studios.

Albrecht Kossel Institute for Neuroregeneration

The Albrecht Kossel Institute for Neuroregeneration is a medical research hospital located in Rostock, Germany. It was formed from the neurobiological laboratory of the hospital for neurology at the University of Rostock, it operates under the auspices of The University Clinic of Rostock; the Institute conducts research into rare congenital metabolic illnesses such as Fabry's disease and Gaucher's disease. It enjoys worldwide recognition as a diagnostic and treatment center for rare illnesses, its stated area of research is neuroregeneration, the regrowth or repair of nervous tissues and cells. The Institute is named for Albrecht Kossel, noted German biochemist, 1910 Nobel laureate in Physiology or Medicine, graduate of the university. In 2007, the Institute initiated Sifap, a Pan-European study dedicated to investigating the correlation of juvenile stroke and a genetic disorder known as Fabry's disease; the Institute will engage in professional cooperation with international partners in the fields of economics and research.

The expected results are an improved understanding into the nature of juvenile stroke, improvement in its therapeutic treatment. The Institute works in close cooperation with national and international universities in the context of scientific cooperatives; the institute participates in LEUKONET, the German Leukodystrophy network, run by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. The Institute participates in and promotes the EuroStemCell project, an initiative of the Framework Programmes for Research and Technological Development by the European Commission. In 2008, it hosted the 5th International Stem Cell School in Regenerative Medicine, an international academic conference; the Institute participates in the Graduiertenkolleg, a means of providing advanced training to medical researchers. The Institute is one of only a few medical facilities in Germany, authorized by the government to conduct human embryonic stem cell research.

Rosebud Primary School

Rosebud Primary School is a primary school in Rosebud, Australia, established in 2014. In October 1874, a petition was sent to the Minister of Education to have a school established in the vicinity of Rosebud. However, it was unsuccessful. In 1894, another petition was made for a schoolhouse and a schoolmaster to be built, as children had to walk to Dromana or Boneo to get to school, it was again unsuccessful. Another application in 1882 was rejected though there were 32 children living in the area, but the next year and school-aged children managed to find success with the Department of Education. A decision was made in 1883 to lease a building to be used as a school. A Head Teacher was appointed to the building and the school opened on 4 September 1884. 37 students attended. In 1885, after complaints from parents about the schools problems, the Education Department purchased two-acres of land on the opposite side of Nepean Highway; the cost was £20 per acre. In November, a school house with a teacher's residence was built on the two-acres of land.

The building consisted of a 24 foot by 16 foot school room with an iron gable roof and a front porch. A skillion verandah ran the length of the building. 7 April 1887, school furniture from the original building was moved to the new building. The principal at the time moved into the residence. In 1888, a split post fence was built around the school site to stop the problem of wandering cattle and sheep from grazing in the schools shelter. By May 1893, 40 students were now attending the school. Most being children from lighthouse keepers' parents in McCrae. Enrolments continued to increase, as well as additional buildings. In 1944, there were now 114 pupils at the school. In 1954, Rosebud Secondary College opened, which meant the school didn't have to cater for Grades 7 and 8, but with secondary students being moved, the school was still overcrowded with 400 students now attending. As 1966 came around, the school committee wanted a library at the school; the Education Department paid a grant of $6000 for a library.

And a further $9630 was raised through fundraising. Construction finished in April that year, it was opened in November and named in the honour of the principal at the time. A farm is one of the school's main features, with chickens and rabbits. There are three ducks; the duck names are: Daffy and Princess Lucy. There are about 20 chickens; the idea of a farm came to the school's assistant principal. In 2012, MP Martin Dixon funded $190,000 for the school to complete planning for its $3 million modernisation. Rosebud Primary School VQRA State Register

Warcraft: The Sunwell Trilogy

Warcraft: The Sunwell Trilogy is a collection of three volumes of OEL manga, written by Richard Knaak, illustrated by Kim Jae-hwan, published by Tokyopop. The series is based on Blizzard Entertainment's Warcraft universe and follows the adventures of Kalec, a blue dragon who takes the form of a human to investigate a mysterious power, Anveena, a beautiful young maiden with an enchanting secret; the series opens with the history of World of Warcraft. A short introduction into the shaping of the universe up to the events leading to the rise of Arthas as the Lich King. During the unsteady stalemate between the living and undead, a young blue dragon flies over what remains of southern Lordaeron. Kalecgos, the blue dragon, is shot down by Harkyn Grymstone, a dragon hunter driven by hatred towards the dragon who killed his family. Before Harkyn and his party find the wounded dragon, Kalec transforms into a human and is saved by Anveena, a young maiden who saw the event, but the hunter's tracking skills and magical items led them to the farm of Anveena's parents.

Kalec and Anveena are spotted by one of Harkyn's henchmen. Kalec returns to his true form and takes to the skies in an attempt to flee together with Anveena, but is hit again and crashes into a lake; the hunter pursue the dragon but the magical artifact steers them North instead of towards the lake. Anveena finds Kalec again on the shore in human form. After resting they return to Anveena's home; when they see smoke coming from the house they find they are much too late. They find themselves under attack by undead abominations and ghouls led by Dar'khan, elven mage and undead commander. Dar'khan surprises them and binds their magics with special neck collars. Dar ` khan tells of his search for the Sunwell. Before Dar'khan can harm them and Anveena are saved by Tyrygosa, another blue dragon. Tyri had come to protect her future mate. In the ruins of her house, Anveena finds a mystic egg, it instantly hatches revealing unknown type of dragonhatchling. Anveena senses. In order to remove the binds from Kalec and Anveena all four of them travel to Tarren Mill.

Tyri disguises herself as an Elf. They search without luck; the magical bind has overexerted Kalec and they decide to rest at the inn. When Kalec wakes up he finds himself looking down the barrel of Harkyn's gun. Before she can help, Tyri is subdued by a magical net. Anveena runs into Jorad Mace, a human Paladin, he advises against returning to Tarren Mill because the Dwarven hunter is not the only opponent interested in Anveena and her friends. The hunters and their prey find themselves surrounded by the Scourge. Dar ` khan makes his presence informed Harkyn he was hired to keep the dragons away; the Lich King foresaw the blue dragons' curiosity about the faint Sunwell energies and had Dar'khan mislead Harkyn into killing any dragon who would come close. Anveena returns. Dar'khan senses the power of the Sunwell in Raac and offers a trade; when Kalec objects, Dar'khan orders the dragon to be killed. Realizing that he has been tricked, Harkyn takes his gun to Dar'khan instead. While the hunters and Kalec fight Dar'khan and his undead, Jorad frees Tyri who swiftly burns the enemy to cinders.

The next morning the entire group decides to head for Aerie Peak in search for Borel and Loggi, a Dwarven smith and a cousin of Harkyn's. Harkyn told them the magical neck-rings looked like Dwarven work, Loggi might be able to remove them. In the next book in the series, it tells of the story of the group's adventures in the Alterac Mountains. At first, Tyri is flying Jorad Mace and Anveena to Aerie Peak, where Loggi Grymstone is, but are attacked and grounded by an undead FrostWyrm somewhere in the Alterac Mountains. Anveena comes to in a small room inside a castle, where she meets the global adventurer Trag Highmountain, a Tauren, who helps her recover. Anveena tries to leave to find her comrades, but Trag convinces her to stay after explaining there are Undead in the mountains led by Ichor, an undead commander, she meets Baron Valimar Mordis, a friend of Trag's though the Baron is a rebel Undead. Still, he looks much like a human besides several scars, including a missing eye; the Baron was trying to find a way to combat him.

He tells his story, explaining he was the lord of a distant kingdom, ravaged by the undead. He was raised from death and forced to join the undead ranks, he broke away from them, Trag, who had come to the kingdom as a messenger, found him and helped him recover. After he finishes, he tricks her into giving him some unknown power stored inside her. To do this, he uses an Orb of Ner'zhul, a powerful undead artifact, to use her to raise an army of his own. While being entranced by the Orb, he tells of his true intentions, he reveals he controls the Frost Wyrm, not Ichor, he had planned this the minute they had entered Alterac. Meanwhile, Kalec finds himself with Raac in a crevasse. Inside the cave, he finds a Dwarven team digging away ice from a giant elephant-like monster; some dwarves knock him out and bind him, Trag takes him away to the castle as a prisoner, but promises to secretly help. To try to stop the Baron, Trag disrupts the spell he is casting by telling of a massive army heading his wa

List of members of the United States House of Representatives in the 62nd Congress by seniority

This is a complete list of members of the United States House of Representatives during the 62nd United States Congress listed by seniority. For the most part, representatives are ranked by the beginning of their terms in office; as an historical article, the districts and party affiliations listed reflect those during the 62nd Congress. Seats and party affiliations on similar lists for other Congresses will be different for certain members; this article describes the criteria for seniority in the House of Representatives and sets out the list of members by seniority. It is prepared on the basis of the interpretation of seniority applied to the House of Representatives in the current congress. In the absence of information to the contrary, it is presumed that the twenty-first-century practice is identical to the seniority customs used during the 62nd Congress. Seniority in the House, for Congressmen with unbroken service, depends on the date on which the members first term began; that date is either the date of a special election during the Congress.

Since many members start serving on the same day as others, ranking between them is based on alphabetical order by the last name of the congressman. Representatives who return to the House, after having served, are credited with service equal to one less than the total number of terms they served; when a representative has served a prior term of less than two terms, he is ranked above all others whose service begins on the same day. Until 1910, House committee members and chairmen were selected by the Speaker, who ranked the members of the committee. Seniority on the committee was just one of the factors, taken into account in ranking the members. In the 61st Congress, Speaker Cannon had used his power to change committee assignments to demote and punish insurgent Republicans. In March 1910 the Speaker was stripped of his powers over the composition of standing committees; as a result of the events of 1910, at the start of the 62nd Congress in 1911, the committee assignments were proposed by each party and formally approved by the whole House.

Each party controlled the committee ranking of its members, but this followed the order of seniority of members in terms of service on the committee. It became customary for members of a committee, in the previous congress, to be re-appointed at the start of the next. An informal seniority rule was used to decide committee chairmen, similar to that which the Senate had followed since 1846; the chairman was to be the majority member of a committee, with the longest continuous service on it. However, party leadership was not associated with seniority. Out of the group of fifty two standing committee chairmen, at the start of this Congress, Nelson Polsby identified twenty five as the most senior member of the majority on the committee. In the other twenty seven cases, twenty one senior majority members were compensated for not being chairman of the committee, thus only in six instances was the seniority custom violated, without obvious compensation for the Congressman passed over. This list refers to the standing committees of the House in the 62nd Congress, the year of establishment as a standing committee, the number of members assigned to the committee and the corresponding committee in the current congress.

Because of consolidation of committees and changes of jurisdiction, it is not always possible to identify a clear successor panel. A numerical rank is assigned to each of the 391 members elected to the 62nd Congress. Other members, who joined the House during the Congress, are not assigned a number. Two Representatives-elect were not sworn in; the list below includes the Representatives-elect, with the seniority they would have held if they had been able to be sworn in. Major party designations used in this article are D for Democratic members and R for Republican representatives. Other designations include Ind for Independent, Prog R for Progressive Republican and Soc for Socialist. 62nd United States Congress List of United States congressional districts List of United States Senators in the 62nd Congress by seniority This article incorporates public domain material from the Biographical Directory of the United States Congress website Cannon's Precedents Congress at the Crossroads, by George B.
