Thomas Colley Porter

Thomas Colley Porter was Mayor of Liverpool, England, in 1827-1828. The election, in which he defeated Nicholas Robinson, was mired by accusations of corruption. Parliamentary historian Margaret Escott says that the 1827 mayoral election, which the plumber and painter Porter won by 1780 votes to 1765 in a poll that lasted six days, was "the most expensive and violent mayoral contest" up to that time. Porter, a Whig, had the support of the Liverpool Mercury while Robinson, a corn merchant, was favoured by the Corporation. Escott says that the main issues were "management of the docks, local commerce, ‘junta’ domination and proposals for a householder and property-based franchise". Votes were bought at prices ranging between £6 and £50, with the candidates spending in total around £8000-10000 each; the two sides co-operated with a subsequent inquiry that resulted in three people being prosecuted and disenfranchised for bribery. There had been 3545 voters and the situation was fuelled by the economic expansion of the city, which meant that some people were awash with money.

Robinson was elected as mayor unopposed in the following year. Porter Street in Liverpool was named after Thomas Porter, he had a business manufacturing white lead on Mill Lane, which became a continuation of Great Howard Street. From 1827 until his death, he lived at a large house, variously described as being in St Anne Street and in Mansfield Street, that became judge's lodgings, it had been constructed and occupied by Samuel Sandbach, another mayor of Liverpool. Although not interested in politics, his oldest son called Thomas, married the daughter of Charles Horsfall, another Liverpool mayor. Menzies, E. M.. "The Freeman Voter in Liverpool, 1802-1835".

Kutztown Area High School

Kutztown Area High School is a public high school in Kutztown, United States. It was built in 1961, with an annex added in 1974 and underwent major renovations in 2016, it is part of the Kutztown Area School District. The school supplies Apple MacBook Air laptops to every student as part of the "one-to-one laptop initiative" It is infamous for its group of thirteen students, referred to as the "Kutztown 13", who violated its technology code of conduct and were subjected to external disciplinary action in 2005. In October 2004, the school distributed Apple iBook laptops to all students, as part of the "One-to-One" program to facilitate school work; each computer was installed with safety instruments. Access to the safety and monitor settings was available via the use of an administrator password; the school administrators set the administrator password on all laptops to "50Trexler" in reference to the street address of the school. Multiple media reports indicated that the password was "taped onto the back of each computer" when they were handed out.

What was on the back was a permanently affixed label with the school's address, although the Kutztown Area High School Administration did realize that the password should have been less obvious. A student or students found out the password, 200 to 300 students had knowledge of the password; these students were able to bypass the school's security system to access chat software view web pages blocked by school policy, install file sharing applications, video games, other unauthorized software, reverse the installed monitoring software to spy on other students and faculty. The school disciplined students for these offenses, from detentions and leading to suspensions for repeated policy violations. With each disciplinary action given, the school claimed. On May 2, 2005, school administrators contacted the Kutztown Borough Police Department with a request to investigate, prosecute, 13 students for violating the school's Acceptable Use Policy after they modified their laptops; the parents of the students were not notified of this criminal investigation because the school was afraid the parents would not be pleased that pictures were being taken of the students, through the computers, at home.

Much of the information released to the media was from the uncle of one of the 13 students and based on comments by the students. On May 31, 2005 the police notified the parents of 13 students that their children were being charged under Pennsylvania crimes code section 7615 for computer trespass, a 3rd degree felony according to Pennsylvania law. In late August 2005, the Berks County juvenile probation office offered to drop all charges in exchange for 15 hours of community service, a letter of apology, a class on personal responsibility and a limited probation period. One student did not accept these conditions, he was emancipated of all charges. Gillian Ryan, swimmer Keith Haring, artist Julie Stark, artist Official website

Prince Philip Dental Hospital

The Prince Philip Dental Hospital is a dental teaching hospital in Sai Ying Pun, Hong Kong. It houses the Faculty of Dentistry of the University of Hong Kong and is governed by the Prince Philip Dental Hospital Ordinance. Government Civil Hospital was opened in 1849 on this site to provide Western medical care; the first hospital was destroyed by a typhoon in 1874 and relocated to new site at the former Hotel d'Europe and Central Police Barracks on Hollywood Road. The second site burned down in 1878. A third site was acquired in 1879 by relocating to the old Lock Hospital and remained there until it closed for good in 1937 after the opening of the Queen Mary Hospital. After 1937 the site was repurposed to handle infectious diseases as Sai Ying Pun Hospital and closed by 1978; this second hospital was demolished to make way for the current Dental Hospital. Construction on the $200 million hospital, designed by the Architectural Services Department, began in 1979, it was planned as a response to a shortage of dentists in the territory.

It was opened on 24 March 1981 by then-president of the British Dental Association. Soon after the hospital opened, the Independent Commission Against Corruption carried out an extensive investigation into the provision of equipment at the new facility due to suspected commercial fraud. Much of the original equipment were suspected copies of reputable models and were not operable. Repairs and replacements had to be carried out on all dental chairs, bunsen burners, dental drills, instrument modules, ultrasonic scalers, operating lights. Investigators stated. In 1983 the hospital board chairman Lydia Dunn stated that the hospital was one of the foremost dental teaching hospitals in the world. A 1984 report by the Audit Commission stated that 23% of the original equipment in the hospital was faulty, blaming the blunder on mismanagement and confused responsibility. Still, the hospital was considered world-class, the first cohort of dental graduates eased the critical shortage of dentists in Hong Kong from 1985 onward.

As of 2016, two in three dentists in Hong Kong graduated from the University of Hong Kong. The HKU School of Dentistry was ranked #1 in the world in the 2016 QS World University Rankings. Official website
