Eagle ray

The eagle rays are a group of cartilaginous fishes in the family Myliobatidae, consisting of large species living in the open ocean rather than on the sea bottom. Eagle rays feed on crustaceans, crushing their shells with their flattened teeth. Devil and manta rays filter plankton from the water, they are excellent are able to breach the water up to several metres above the surface. Compared with other rays, they have long tails, well-defined, rhomboidal bodies, they are ovoviviparous. They range from 7 m in wingspan. Nelson's book Fishes of the World treats cownose rays and devil rays as subfamilies in the Myliobatidae. However, most authors have preferred to leave the Rhinopteridae and Mobulidae outside of the Myliobatidae. White retained three genera in the Myliobatidae. A 2016 paper placed Aetobatus in the Aetobatidae; this obscure genus is distributed in the Eastern Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, Pacific Ocean. These rays were named; the common eagle ray, M. aquila, is distributed throughout the Eastern Atlantic, including the Mediterranean Sea and the North Sea.

Another important species is M. californica, in the Pacific Ocean. These rays can grow large, up to 1.8 m including the tail. The tail looks like a whip and may be as long as the body, is armed with a sting. Eagle rays live close to the coast in depths of 1 to 30 m and in exceptional cases they are found as deep as 300 m; the eagle ray is most seen cruising along sandy beaches in shallow waters, its two wings sometimes breaking the surface and giving the impression of two sharks traveling together.

University Hospitals of the Ruhr-University of Bochum

The University hospitals of the Ruhr University of Bochum, German Universitätsklinikum der Ruhr-Universität Bochum, abbreviated UK RUB is a syndicate of six university hospitals and associated facilities of the Ruhr University of Bochum. Founded in 2008 by the merger of formally independent hospitals the UK RUB is now a major provider of health in the Ruhr Metropolitan Region treating over 400,000 patients per year with a strong commitment to research and teaching; the Universitätsklinikum der Ruhr-Universität Bochum emerged from the Bochum Model, where several non state-owned hospitals in Bochum and the surrounding metropolitan area were appointed as teaching hospitals. This appointment was first intended to be a temporary solution to financial shortages and political problems in the development of the medical faculty in Bochum in the 1970s after the Universitätsklinikum Essen was spun off from the Ruhr University in 1972 and integrated into the newly formed Universität-Gesamthochschule Essen.

In 1998 the cooperation between appointed hospitals and Ruhr University was permanently established. This was in September 2008 the basis for the foundation of the Verband Klinikum der Ruhr-Universität Bochum with coordinating tasks in clinical and didactical fields.

Adelaide Crapsey

Adelaide Crapsey was an American poet. Born in Brooklyn, New York, she was raised in Rochester, New York, daughter of Adelaide T. Crapsey and Episcopal priest Algernon Sidney Crapsey, who had moved from New York City to Rochester. Adelaide Crapsey was born on September 1878 in Brooklyn Heights, New York, her parents were Adelaide Crapsey. She was the third child of her parents, their first child was a son their second child was a daughter Emily. Adelaide was baptized on November 1, 1878 in Trinity Church in New York City where her father was an assistant minister. Before Adelaide was a year old, her father became the rector of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in Rochester, N. Y, his family followed him to Rochester from New York City on the canal boat. In Rochester, Adelaide attended the public schools. Crapsey was "raised in a liberal environment that encouraged great expectations for women."After leaving the Rochester public schools, Adelaide with her sister Emily entered Kemper Hall in 1893. Kemper Hall was an Episcopalian woman's college preparatory school in Wisconsin.

At Kemper Hall, she took the college preparatory courses which included French. She was the editor of the school magazine and she played and refereed basketball, she graduated in 1897 as the valedictorian for her class. Adelaide matriculated in Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York in 1897, she had "a active four years" in Vassar. For three years she was class poet, she managed the basketball team. She was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, she played the role of Lucy the maid in the play The Rivals. Crapsey roomed with Jean Webster who continued to be "her best friend and literary comrade" for the rest of her life. Two of Adelaide's sisters died. Ruth died in 1898 of undulant fever at the age of eleven. Emily, with whom Adelaide was closest, died in 1901 of appendicitis at the age of twenty-four. Adelaide planned a career in teaching after graduating from Vassar in 1901. However, before beginning work, she took a year off both "to regain her strength" and "to recover from the shock" of Emily's death."After her year off, Adelaide returned to Kemper Hall to teach history and literature in 1903-1904.

While there, she suffered chronic fatigue, a symptom of her not-yet-diagnosed tuberculosis. This caused Adelaide to leave her teaching in 1904, to study at the School of Classical Studies of the American Academy in Rome, she supported herself by working as a lecturer. In Rome, she had a great "rebirth of energy and creativeness" in the warm and temperate Italian climate. While there, she met a man ``. However, the seriousness of her father's situation faced with interviews by the Committee of Investigation of the Diocese of Western New York and possible charges of heresy brought Adelaide back home from Rome in 1905 to support her parents. One afternoon, when Adelaide and her mother were in the rectory and her father was out, members of the Committee of Investigation came to ask her father some questions, her mother was "too nervous and worn out from the months in the public eye," so Adelaide offered to serve the men tea. She "spiked the tea with rum," which contributed to their good mood when they left.

Adelaide's courage in the face of the enemy may have inspired her poem about the biblical Judith: Israel! Wake! Be gay! Thine enemy is brought low— Thy foe slain—by the hand, by the hand Of a woman! In 1906, the Diocese presented charges of heresy against Adelaide's father and an Ecclesiastical Court was established and trial was set to be held in Batavia, New York. On April 18, 1906, she went with his chief counsel to Batavia. At the end of the trial, her father was found guilty of heresy. After the trial, Adelaide remained with her family to give them her "support and good humor." However, her "literary and academic future" had been suspended for eighteen months. She needed a job near enough to Rochester to be "relatively accessible to her family." She found such a job, teaching literature at Miss Low's School in Stamford, Connecticut. Stamford was only a short train ride from New York City where her father's Court of Appeal was held; the appeal was denied on November 20, 1906. Adelaide taught at Miss Low's for the academic years 1906-1907 and 1907-1908.

With her father's appeal having been denied, he was no longer a minister in the Episcopal Church. He was given until the end of December 1906 to vacate the St. Andrew's rectory. Therefore, when Adelaide went home for Christmas in 1906, the family was moving out of the house in, her home for twenty-seven years and into a rented house; when Adelaide went back to Stamford, other sad events followed. Her grandmother Harriet Gunn Trowbridge, whom she had visited as a child, died. In May 1907, her eldest brother Philip died of chronic malaria, which he had contracted during the invasion of Cuba during the Spanish–American War. Adelaide was not happy teaching at Miss Low's school; the "atmosphere was oppressive" to her. Her teaching was described as "thrilling." Her students "seemed to gravitate" to her classes. In 1907, Adelaide's father was a delegate to the International Peace Conference at the Hague, she accompanied him. During the Conference, fluent in French, was in demand as a translator; the Conference was conducted in French and the newspapers were printed in French, a language which few Americans knew.

The Crapseys left the Conference early "disillusioned and disappointed." After the Conference and her

The Movement (reggae band)

The Movement is an American reggae band formed in Columbia, South Carolina, in 2004. The two founding members, Josh Swain and Jordan Miller relocated to Philadelphia, where they acquired a live rhythm section in the form of local Philadelphia musicians Jay Schmidt and Gary Jackson; the band has released six studio albums. Their music is described as a fusion of rock, hip hop and acoustic music; the Movement began in 2004 when childhood friends Josh Swain and Jordan Miller reconnected in their hometown to write songs as a duo. With Swain on guitar and Miller on congas, the two utilized a drum machine to complete their sound. Soon after, Jon Ruff, known as DJ Riggles, joined the group and the trio gained a loyal regional following. In March 2004 they released their first studio album, On Your Feet, recorded and mixed in 24 studio hours at Pat Casey's Modern Music Studios in Columbia, South Carolina. On Your Feet has proved a mainstay of the reggae/rock genre and is listed at No. 9 on The Pier's 10 Essential Reggae Rock Albums.

The band continued to build their following with nonstop touring throughout the US. They enjoyed success in opening for national acts such as Steel Pulse, Blues Traveler, Slightly Stoopid, The Wailers, Ludacris, G. Love & Special Sauce, Long Beach Shortbus, The Wu Tang Clan, SOJA, 311. Swain and Miller relocated to Philadelphia to begin recording what would be become their second studio album, 2008's Set Sail at Philadelphonic Studios with producer Chris DiBeneditto, who had worked with G. Love & Special Sauce, Slightly Stoopid and The Expendables. DJ Riggles contributed to the album, but left the band before it was released. To solidify the band's lineup, DiBeneditto contacted local drummer Gary Jackson to sit in with Swain and Miller; the three hit it off and Jackson brought in his friend, guitarist Jay Schmidt, to play bass. 2008 saw the release of "Set Sail" which proved to be a turning point in their careers and propelled the band into further nonstop touring and acclaim. In 2010 Swain left the band for what would only be a temporary hiatus, returning in 2012 to replace Miller, who quit the band abruptly just hours before a scheduled performance in Spartanburg, SC.

In March 2012, The Movement released their third studio album, One More Night, the only album featuring Miller as sole songwriter. The reformed trio, with Swain at the helm, relocated to San Diego, California, to record their fourth full-length album Side by Side, released in August 2013, entered the Billboard Reggae Albums Chart at number 2. In February 2014 members of the band were arrested for possession of marijuana; that year the band released "Beneath The Palms]", a surprise acoustic album on Thanksgiving day as a gift to fans. In April 2015 the band released a single "Rescue" and announced plans to record another full length album; the band's sixth studio album, was released in April 2016 on Rootfire Cooperative, topped the Billboard Reggae Albums chart. Swain and Miller assumed equal roles in leading the band as dual frontmen while showcasing their individual songwriting styles, they are noted for their use of two-part harmonies while singing backing vocals for one another's songs. I’ve always thought of it as what I like to call alternative reggae,” Swain said of the band’s music.

“We don’t feel roots reggae. We’re not rasta, it comes out a little more hip-hop, a little more rock. Swain and Miller have cited artists of all genres, ranging from the Pixies to Sublime to Outkast to Norah Jones, as having influenced their own songwriting. In an interview with The Pier, Miller is asked where the reggae influence of their music originated: Through Josh. Growing up, he developed an eclectic musical taste and is a big fan of UB40 and Sublime. I listen to a lot of different things, like The Pixies and a lot of underground alternative stuff; when we got together and started playing, it was the reggae. We latched onto that feeling from reggae music and how it felt right to us. We love everyone from Beres Hammond to Dennis Brown to Steel Pulse. We try to put that spin on the reggae music.
