Eider (river)

The Eider is the longest river in the German state of Schleswig-Holstein. The river starts near Bordesholm and reaches the southwestern outskirts of Kiel on the shores of the Baltic Sea, but flows to the west, ending in the North Sea; the lower part of the Eider was used as part of the Eider Canal until that canal was replaced by the modern Kiel Canal. In the Early Middle Ages the river is believed to have been the border between the related Germanic tribes, the Jutes and the Angles, who along with the neighboring Saxons crossed the North Sea from this region during this period and settled in England. During the High Middle Ages the Eider was the border between the Saxons and the Danes, as reported by Adam of Bremen in 1076. For centuries it divided the Holy Roman Empire. Today it is the border between Schleswig and Holstein, the northern and southern parts of the modern German state of Schleswig-Holstein; the Eider flows through the following towns: Bordesholm, Rendsburg, Friedrichstadt and Tönning.

Near Tönning it flows into the North Sea. The estuary has brackish water; the mouth of the river is crossed by the Eider Barrage. A tidal lock provides access for boats through the Eider Barrage; the fishing port of Tönning lies 11 kilometres upstream of the barrier, while Friedrichstadt is 15 kilometres further upstream. At Friedrichstadt a lock gives access to the River Treene; the Eider remains tidal as far as the lock at Nordfeld, 6 kilometres above Friedrichstadt. There is a further lock named Lexfähre near Wrohm, 52 kilometres upstream of Nordfeld. A further 3 kilometres beyond Lexfähre is the junction with the short Gieselau Canal, which provides a navigable link to the Kiel Canal at Oldenbüttel; the Eider therefore provides an alternative route from the North Sea to the Kiel Canal, avoiding the tides of the estuary of the Elbe. The head of navigation lies a further 23 kilometres upstream at Rendsburg. Although it is adjacent to the Kiel Canal, through passage is no longer possible.

French Catholic Academy

The French Catholic Academy, was first thought in late 2007 early 2008 by a group of academics. On July 11, 2008, a first meeting was held, bringing together personalities from magazines and faculties. On October 13, 2008, a small committee was held at the Collège des Bernardins in Paris, which decided on the definitive name "Académie catholique de France" and its head office at this address. In January 2009, the new office was made up of the priest and philosopher Philippe Capelle-Dumont, the professor of immunologic medicine Edgardo D. Carosella and Father Jean-Robert Armogathe and professor and philosopher Pierre Manent organized a first meeting during which the statutes and rules of procedure were adopted. In March 2009 the first meeting of the "Scientific Council" was held and the first members of the "academic body" were elected. Inspired by the Catholic Academy of Mainz, in Germany, the French Catholic Academy is composed of 70 clerics and laymen; the "academic body" has 84% lay people.

Due to the number of scandals perpetuated by a minority of the 20th century clergy and the growing Republican anti-Catholic feeling in France, Nathalie Nabert and poet, honorary dean of the Faculty of Letters of the Catholic Institute of Paris, a member of the "academic body", admits that his commitment is a courageous challenge. However, she adds that the creation of a "Catholic Academy of France", supported by the Faculty of Catholic Theology and the French School of Jerusalem, is a serious and urgent matter. Indeed, the death of René Rémond appeared to some as the end of the "Catholic intellectual". There were no longer any spaces for discussion where men of faith and combat had opposed torture in Algeria during the war. Rémond was one of those Catholics engaged in political life who ensured a triple mediation between the Church, the Catholic laity and the secularized society. René Rémond himself alarmed as early as 2000 of the silence of Catholic intellectuals in public debate; the creation of the "Académie catholique de France" therefore responds to a need: to work to transmit the Christian heritage, to be open and creative

In a recorded interview, Bushman states that William Fox had spies working for Metro, stole some of the intertitles from the Metro version. Fox rushed his version into the theatres. Bushman recalled going to see Fox's Romeo and Juliet and was startled to see the intertitles from his film flash on the screen.
