Mulgrave includes the towns of Gordonvale and Babinda; the electorate was first created for the 1950 election. There was an earlier district called Mulgrave that existed from 1873 to 1888, it was based on the town of Bundaberg and was replaced by the new electoral district of Bundaberg by the Electoral Districts Act of 1887.

Josephine (shipwreck)

Josephine was an American iron-hull, sidewheel steamer that transported mail and passengers, in the Gulf of Mexico between New Orleans and Galveston, beginning in 1868. In 1881, the Josephine was transferred to the New Orleans – Havana route. Returning from Havana in February 1881, the Josephine encountered a winter storm in the Gulf of Mexico, south of Biloxi, took on water and sank, but all passengers and crew survived. In 2000, the Josephine shipwreck was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Early in the 19th century, New York businessman Charles Morgan became a successful entrepreneur by investing in railroad and steamship commerce in the southern United States. In 1867, Morgan contracted with shipbuilder and Hollingsworth of Wilmington, Delaware, to construct the iron-hull steamer Josephine for Morgan's Louisiana and Texas Railroad and Steamship Company. In February 1868, the Josephine made its maiden voyage from Wilmington to New Orleans. At that time, the Josephine was assigned its main transportation route between Beshear and Galveston, Texas.

Over the next decade, the Josephine transported mail and passengers, twice weekly, between Louisiana and Texas. The Josephine was 235 feet in length, 34 feet wide, its depth of hold was 18.5 feet. Propulsion was provided by an 800-horsepower, walking beam steam engine; the ship had two cabins and two decks, it could accommodate 250 passengers. In January 1881, the Josephine had replaced another steamer on the New Orleans to Havana shipping route. In early February 1881, the Josephine departed Havana with a shipment of tobacco and cigars, plus a number of passengers. More passengers boarded in Florida. After leaving Cedar Key on February 4, en route to New Orleans, the Josephine encountered a winter storm on February 7, developed leaks in her seams, began taking on water; the 65 passengers and crew abandoned ship on February 8, with no loss of life, the Josephine sank in 38 feet of water between Horn Island and Ship Island. In 1997 and 1999, the Minerals Management Service obtained underwater photo documentation of the wreck site and collected information using side-scan sonar to confirm the identity of the vessel

Orthoceras

Orthoceras is a genus of extinct nautiloid cephalopod restricted to Middle Ordovician-aged marine limestones of the Baltic States and Sweden. This genus is sometimes called Orthoceratites. Note it is sometimes misspelled as Orthocera, Orthocerus or Orthoceros. Orthoceras was thought to have had a worldwide distribution due to the genus' use as a wastebasket taxon for numerous species of conical-shelled nautiloids throughout the Paleozoic and Triassic. Now, Orthoceras sensu stricto refers to O. regulare, of Ordovician-aged Baltic Sea limestones of Sweden and neighboring areas. These are slender, elongate shells with the middle of the body chamber transversely constricted, a subcentral orthochoanitic siphuncle; the surface is ornamented by a network of fine lirae. Many other similar species are included under the genus Michelinoceras. Orthoceras referred to all nautiloids with a straight-shell, called an "orthocone", but research on their internal structures, such as the siphuncle, cameral deposits, others, showed that these belong to a number of groups different orders.

According to the authoritative Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology, the name Orthoceras is now only used to refer to the type species O. regulare from the Middle Ordovician of Sweden and parts of the former Soviet Union such as Russia, Belarus and Lithuania. The genus might include a few related species. Orthoceras and related orthoconic nautiloid cephalopods are confused with the superficially similar Baculites and related Cretaceous orthoconic ammonoids. Both are long and tubular in form, both are common items for sale in rock shops. Both lineages evidently evolved the tubular form independently of one another, at different times in earth history. Orthoceras lived much earlier than Baculites; the two types of fossils can be distinguished by many features, most obvious among, the suture line: simple in Orthoceras, intricately foliated in Baculites and related forms.

Déclic Images

Déclic Images is a French company specialised in the translation and sale of Japanese-style comics in the French-speaking world. The Déclic Images trademark was born in 1999; as early as 2002, the company produced nearly half of all new Japanese anime published in France. The newly published series are rich in episodes and their release dates come in quick succession; the main goal of the company is to offer popular series that are accessible to all, containing at least 26 episodes. In order to ensure good sales, Déclic Images decided to produce both recent titles and anime classics such as Heidi or Masters of the Universe. A commercial war began in 2002 against Kaze animation and Dybex, Déclic Images' competitors in the anime market; this was despite the fact that both of the companies' products were distributed by Déclic Images' parent company, Manga Distribution. In order to guarantee its preeminence in the market, Déclic Images decided to offer Japanese copyright holders unprecedented licence-acquisition offers.

Other publishers had the choice between offering interesting prices, falling back on less prestigious titles or hoping to find undiscovered talent. At the height of Japanese anime sales in 2005, Déclic Images's sales reached 5.24 million euro. It sold its products in supermarkets, over the Internet and in specialised shops, in 2004 launched a large marketing campaign that included TV ads. Despite this presence on the market, Déclic Images was in need of a coup, as each product generated only a small profit and Manga Distribution handled its supermarket presence badly. In 2005 everything changed for the young company. After solid growth between 2002 and 2005, with a dozen titles being released per year, the company released Goldorak in August 2005, it was revealed that Déclic Images did not hold the rights to the title. After extensive judicial travails, a French appeals court confirmed in 2009 a judgment of 4.8 million euro in damages against the company. Several matters remain in the courts, including the matter of a 2006 release of Captain Future without proper licensing rights.

Déclic Images has since gone through a number of restructurings and recovery proceedings, seems to be in the impossibility of finding new licensing opportunities, nowadays only relying on re-releases of their current library of titles, having lost the confidence of Japanese distributors and producers, leaving sequels and remakes of anime series that they have licensed unlicensed. Their last license before they stopped licensing anime titles was Gakuen Alice. Black Lagoon, Black Lagoon: The Second Barrage, X were relicensed by Kazé in 2012, the company licensed Black Lagoon: Roberta's Blood Trail. Full Metal Panic! and Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu were relicensed by Dybex in 2014, the company licensed Full Metal Panic!: The Second Raid. Over the years Déclic Images has distributed a number of popular anime series, OVAs in their network. Déclic Images would either distribute the series through TV or at times become the publisher of the series in France.
