Ellen Andrea Wang

Ellen Andrea Wang is a Norwegian jazz musician and composer. She is the cousin of singer-songwriter Marthe Wang. Raised in Søndre Land, she released her debut album, Diving, in 2014, she formed the band Pixel in 2010. Wang has performed with Sting. Wang started playing the violin at a young age, but substituted an upright bass for the violin at the age of sixteen, attended the Norwegian Academy of Music under guidance of the bassist Bjørn Kjellemyr, she is leading her own Ellen Andrea Wang Trio and the band "Pixel", is a driving force in the band "SynKoke", is in addition part of the band Dag Arnesen Trio. The gig by "Pixel" including drummer Jon Audun Baar, trumpeter Jonas Kilmork Vemøy and saxophonist Harald Lassen, was noted as "one of the most memorable moments" of the Match and Fuse Festival, by the Jazz magazine Down Beat. At Oslo Jazz Festival 2013, Wang for the first time presented a band that bears her name Ellen Andrea Wang Trio. On the keyboards is Andreas Ulvo, well known from the "Eple Trio" and Mathias Eick's band.

On the drums is Erland Dahlen, who collaborates with Nils Petter Molvær and Susanna Wallumrød among others. The trio play an innovative jazz with elements from the rock and pop world. At Vossajazz 2014, she appeared within Ivar Kolve's Polyostinat experience. Here she performed with Norwegian elite musicians, delivered an indulgent polyrhythmic and polyharmonic treat for the discerning ear. At Moldejazz 2014, Wang presented material from her debut solo album Diving; the Ellen Andrea Wang Trio play a wonderful mix of jazz and rock, with catchy melodies and hypnotic grooves. In October 2014 the bands "Pixel" and "SynKoke" delivered gigs at the London venue Vortex Jazz Club during the'Match and Fuse Festival'. Wang received the Kongsberg Jazz Festivals great musician price in July 2015; the prize is awarded to a musician.

Indiana State Road 4

State Road 4 is an east–west discontinuous state road in the US state of Indiana. The western end of the western segment is in La Porte; the highway passes through rural areas of LaPorte and St. Joseph counties, before ending near Lakeville; the central segment starts at the eastern city limits of Goshen and heads east passing through rural Elkhart County, before ending at SR 13. The eastern segment runs between Interstate 69, passing through the towns of Ashley; the state road runs through five counties in northern Indiana through rural farm fields and small towns. Dating back to the early days of the state road system, SR 4 was first signed in the southern part of the state, it was moved to its modern routing in 1932, running from Goshen to SR 13. In the early to mid 1940s, SR 4 was added to the state road system between La Porte and Lakeville, while the eastern segment was added in the late 1940s, running from SR 327 to U. S. Highway 27; the segment of roadway east of I-69 was removed from the state road system in the early 1970s.

In the mid-2010s the western segment of roadway was extended east to meet the new alignment of US 31 and the western end of the central segment was moved from downtown Goshen to the eastern city limits. The western segment is the longest of the three section of SR 4, at 25 miles; the segment begins in La Porte. It follows Monroe Street southeasterly passing through residential area of the city; the road enters rural LaPorte County. After crossing the track the road parallels it to the southeast before a four-way stop with the northern end of SR 104 and county road 300 South. At this intersection SR 4 turns towards the northeast. SR 4 bends to become east-west, before curving back towards the southeast. After becoming northwest-southeast SR 4 crosses over Canadian National Railroad track and through Fish Lake, between Lower Fish Lake and Upper Fish Lake. SR 4 passes over Kankakee River before curving to become north-south. Soon after becoming north-south, SR 4 bends to become east-west and passes over another branch of the Kankakee River.

The road enters North Liberty and is concurrent with Center Street, passing through an intersection with SR 23. East of North Liberty the road passes on the south side of Potato Creek State Park, while passing through farm fields and wooded areas. SR 4 passes on the north side of Lakeville having an intersection with SR 931; the road leaves Lakeville before having an interchange with US 31. SR 4 ends at this interchange but the roadway its self continues east as Pierce Road, a county road in St. Joseph County; the central segment begins as a continuation of Lincoln Avenue at the eastern city limits of the city of Goshen. The road heads northeast from Goshen while passing in rural Elkhart County; the highway has an all-way stop with County Road 35 before bending to become east-west. SR 4 ends at a three-way intersection with SR 13 with SR 13 heading north and east from this intersection; the eastern segment of SR 4 begins at a three-way intersection with SR 327, just south of Helmer. SR 4 heads east as the Dekalb–Steuben county line, parallel to an Indiana Northeastern Railroad track, passing by agricultural land.

The road enters the town of Ashley, concurrent with State Street, passing between industrial and residential properties, before entering downtown Ashley. East of downtown State Street, the highway passes by houses before an interchange with I-69; the SR 4 designation ends at this interchange. SR 4 prior to 1926 was designated between SR 5, now SR 550, the Ohio state line, east of Lawrenceburg routed along the modern corridor of US 50. Between 1926 and 1932 the SR 4 designation went unused. In 1932 SR 4 was designated between Goshen and SR 13 was designated. Between 1939 and 1941 SR 727 was commissioned, between SR 327 and Ashley, along the modern SR 4; the western segment was added to the state road system between 1942 and 1945, between LaPorte and Lakeville. The eastern segment of SR 4 was added either in 1949 or 1950, routed between SR 727, in Ashley, US 27. SR 4 was extended west to SR 327 from Ashley replacing SR 727; the eastern terminus of SR 4 was moved west to I-69 from US 27 between 1970 and 1971.

During 2014 the western segment of SR 4 was extended east to an interchange at the new route of US 31. SR 4 was extended to the US 31 freeway in conjunction with that facility opening in 2014; the segment of SR 4 from US 33/SR 15 to the eastern city limits of Goshen was removed form the state road system between 2015 and 2016

Hadlow

Hadlow is a village in the borough of Tonbridge and Malling in Kent, England. It is situated in north-east of Tonbridge and south-west of Maidstone; the Saxon name for the settlement was Haeselholte. The Domesday Book records it as Haslow and in the Middle Ages it became Hadloe and Hadlow. Evidence of settlement in the Hadlow area dates back to the Stone Age implements, which have been found near the village; the Domesday entry for the village reads:- Richard de Tonebridge holds of the bishop Haslow. It was taxed at six sulings; the arable land is twelve carucates. In demesne there are three, forty-seven villeins, with fifteen borderers, having fifteen carucates. There is a church and ten servants, two mills of eleven shillings, twelve fisheries of seven shillings and six-pence, twelve acres of meadow, Wood for the pannage of sixty hogs. In the time of king Edward the Confessor, afterwards, now, it was and is worth thirty pounds. Eddeva held it of king Edward. During the Middle Ages the manor of Hadlow was owned by the Knights Hospitallers the Earls of Gloucester, followed by the Earls of Stafford, who were elevated to the Dukes of Buckingham in 1444.

The third Duke of Buckingham was executed in 1521, the manor went through a series of ownership changes. Sir Henry Guildford being granted the manor by Henry VIII, the manor passed back to the Crown on his death, it was granted to the Duke of Northumberland, again returned to the Crown. in 1558, Henry Carey, the first Baron Hunsdon, received it from Elizabeth I passing to his two sons, one of whom Sir George Carey, owned the manor in 1586 The manor house was called Court Lodge at this time. Early in the 17th century, it was sold to a London Physician, he sold it to second son of Sir George Rivers of Chafford. A new manor house, Hadlow Court Lodge was built c.1635. The Rivers family owned Fish Hall, in the possession of the Fane family during the time of Henry VIII but was bought by the Rivers. In 1657 the manor was the property of Sir Thomas Rivers, but it was sold, along with Fish Hall, during the reign of Charles II to Jeffrey Amherst. He sold the manor and Fish Hall to John France in 1700. John France had two daughters and Elizabeth.

They shared the estate upon the death of their father, Elizabeth taking Fish Hall, Sarah taking Hadlow manor. Sarah married Walter Barton, their first son, was born deaf and dumb. Their second son, inherited a large fortune from his uncle Richard May in 1763, on condition that he took the surname May. Walter May married Elizabeth Stanford of Strettit Place, East Peckham in 1775, he inherited Hadlow Court Lodge in 1786 and set to work demolishing Hadlow Court Lodge and building Hadlow Castle. His son Walter Barton May added a 153 feet high folly in 1835; the folly was damaged in the Great Storm of 1987. Being Grade 1 Listed and being included in the 1998 World Monuments Watch List of 100 Most Endangered Sites by the World Monuments Fund, the owner of the folly was issued with a Compulsory Purchase Order by Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council in July 2006; the main village street is brick-paved and there are several old houses and two Tudor inns. Hadlow Pharmacy on The Square has a history which can be traced back to at least 1856.

The River Bourne flows through the parish, powered a watermill in the village, the home of Carr & Westley since they moved from London during the blitz and two in Golden Green. A set of Hopper huts from North Frith Farm has been dismantled and re-erected at the Museum of Kent Life, Sandling; the village's amateur dramatic society, Hadlow Amateur Dramatic Society, have been performing pantomimes and dramatic pieces to Hadlow for over 30 years. The church is dedicated to St. Mary, was first mentioned in 975, thus it celebrated 1000 years in 1975. Hadlow was given to Eddeva in 1018, parts of the church date to this time; the tower dates to the thirteenth century or earlier. The main door of the church has the date 1637 on it; this is misread as 1037 due to most of the upper part of the first 6 being missing. The clock, by John Thwaites of Clerkenwell, dates from 1791. In the churchyard is a 19th-century memorial to the drowning locally of 30 hop-pickers. Other churches and chapels in Hadlow include a Baptist Chapel in Court Lane, built in 1830.

The Catholic chapel on Maidstone Road is dedicated to St. Peter. In Golden Green there was a Wesleyan chapel which opened in 1899 and closed in 1956. A tin tabernacle had been built in Golden Green by 1882. Hadlow had working breweries between the late 1940s; the earliest reference to a brewery in Hadlow is in 1710 when John Barton, Yeoman of Hadlow is mentioned in connection with a newly erected malthouse in Hadlow Street. In 1840 there was a complaint. In 1851 the brewery was being run by Messrs Harrison & Taylor and in 1858 they sold the business to Edward Kenward of Marden and William Barnett of Willingdon, Sussex. Thomas Simmonds of East Peckham and Nelson Kenward were parties, part purchasing and part leasing the brewery. In 1859 it was agreed; this building being the one nearly parallel to the High Street. In 1868 Edward Kenward was bankrupt, owing £9,500; the partnership was dissolved in that year by mutual consent. Edward and Trayton Kenward became partners, but this partnership was dissolved and all properties assigned to Trayton Kenward.

In October 1871, Trayton and Charles

Atmel AVR instruction set

The Atmel AVR instruction set is the machine language for the Atmel AVR, a modified Harvard architecture 8-bit RISC single chip microcontroller, developed by Atmel in 1996. The AVR was one of the first microcontroller families to use on-chip flash memory for program storage. There are 32 general-purpose 8-bit registers, R0–R31. All arithmetic and logic operations operate on those registers. A limited number of instructions operate on 16-bit register pairs; the lower-numbered register of the pair must be even-numbered. The last three register pairs are used, they are known as X, Y and Z. Postincrement and predecrement addressing modes are supported on all three. Y and Z support a six-bit positive displacement. Instructions which allow an immediate value are limited to registers R16–R31 or to register pairs R25:R24–R31:R30; some variants of the MUL operation are limited to eight registers, R16 through R23. In addition to these 32 general-purpose registers, the CPU has a few special-purpose registers: PC: 16- or 22-bit program counter SP: 8- or 16-bit stack pointer SREG: 8-bit status register RAMPX, RAMPY, RAMPZ, RAMPD and EIND: 8-bit segment registers that are prepended to 16-bit addresses in order to form 24-bit addresses.

The status register. This is a borrow flag on subtracts; the INC and DEC instructions do not modify the carry flag, so they may be used to loop over multi-byte arithmetic operations. Z Zero flag. Set to 1 when an arithmetic result is zero. N Negative flag. Set to a copy of the most significant bit of an arithmetic result. V Overflow flag. Set in case of two's complement overflow. S Sign flag. Unique to AVR, this is always N⊕V, shows the true sign of a comparison. H Half-carry flag; this is used to support BCD arithmetic. T Bit copy. Special bit load and bit store instructions use this bit. I Interrupt flag. Set when interrupts are enabled; the following address spaces are available: The general purpose registers are addressed by their numbers, although the full 5-bit number is not stored in instructions that can only operate on a subset of those registers. I/O registers have a dedicated 6-bit address space, the lower half of, bit-addressable; the data address space maps the 32 general-purpose registers, all the I/O registers, the RAM.

Program memory has a separate address space, addressed as 16-bit words for the purpose of fetching instructions For the purpose of fetching constant data, program memory is addressed bytewise through the Z pointer register, prepended if necessary by RAMPZ. The EEPROM is memory-mapped in some devices; the general purpose registers, the status register and some I/O registers are bit-addressable, with bit 0 being the least significant and bit 7 the most significant. The first 64 I/O registers are accessible through both the data address space, they have therefore two different addresses. These are written as "0x00" through "0x3F", where the first item is the I/O address and the second, in parentheses, the data address; the special-purpose CPU registers, with the exception of PC, can be accessed as I/O registers. Some registers may not be present on machines with less than 64 KiB of addressable memory. A typical ATmega memory map may look like:. In parts lacking extended I/O the RAM would start at 0x0060.

Arithmetic operations work on registers R0–R31 but not directly on RAM and take one clock cycle, except for multiplication and word-wide addition which take two cycles. RAM and I/O space can be accessed only by copying to or from registers. Indirect access is possible through registers X, Y, Z. All accesses to RAM takes two clock cycles. Moving between registers and I/O is one cycle. Moving eight or sixteen bit data between registers or constant to register is one cycle. Reading program memory takes three cycles. Instructions are one 16-bit word long, save for those including a 16-bit or 22-bit address, which take two words. There are two types of conditional branches: skips. Conditional branches can jump to specified address. Skips skip the next instruction if the test was true. In the following: Rd and Rr are registers in the range R0–R31 Rdh and Rrh are registers in the range R16–R31 Rdq and Rrq are registers in the range R16–R23 Rp is a register pair R25:R24, R27:R26, R29:R28 or R31:R30 XYZ is a pointer register, either X or Y or Z YZ is a pointer register, either Y or Z s is a bit number in the status register b is a bit number in a general-purpose or I/O register K6 is a 6-bit immediate unsigned constant K8 is an 8-bit immediate constant.

1970 Commonwealth Paraplegic Games

The Third Commonwealth Paraplegic Games was a multi-sport event, held in Edinburgh, Scotland from 26 July to 1 August 1970. Dubbed the "little games", they followed the 1970 British Commonwealth Games which were held in Edinburgh from 16 to 25 July of that year; the chairman of the Organising Committee was Lieutenant-Colonel John Fraser. It was known as the "little games" and the "Wheelchair Games"; the Games were opened by the British Prime Minister Edward Heath. The opening ceremony was attended by a crowd of 2,000 people; the teams were led in by the hosts of Jamaica. On behalf of all the competitors, James Laird, the Scottish team captain, took an oath. A message of support from the Provosts of 28 towns and cities across Scotland was read out, having been relayed from John o' Groats by runners from the Scottish Youth Clubs Association; the games were closed by Lord Provost of the Edinburgh Corporation. 197 athletes from fourteen Commonwealth countries took part. Countries at this games that had not participated were Hong Kong, Malaysia and Uganda.

Sports included: The following were the venues for the games: An athletes village was located at Turnhouse, with accommodation provided free of charge to the athletes by the Ministry of Defence. The Edinburgh Corporation had supplied fourteen adapted buses, which volunteer drivers used to transport the athletes between venues during the games. Athletics events were held at Meadowbank stadium. Shooting events were held at Redcraigs shooting range in West Lothian. There was some criticism of the lack of day-to-day television coverage from the BBC and ITV broadcasters; the final medal table is: Commonwealth Games hosted in Scotland: 1970 Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh 1986 Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow

Puysegur Trench

The 6,300-metre deep Puysegur Trench is a deep cleft in the floor of the south Tasman Sea formed by the subduction of the Indo-Australian Plate under the Pacific Plate to the south of New Zealand. To its east lies a ridge, a northern extension of the Macquarie Ridge, which separates the Puysegur Trench from the Solander Trough. To the west is the expanse of the Tasman Basin, which stretches most of the distance to Australia. To the north of the trench lies the Fiordland Basin, which can be considered an extension of the trench; the Puysegur Trench mirrors the Kermadec Tonga Trench north of New Zealand. The Puysegur Trench stretches for over 800 kilometres south from the southwesternmost point of the South Island's coast, its southernmost extent being 400 kilometres due west of the Auckland Islands, it is named after Puysegur Point. The area around the Puysegur Trench is seismically active, with the Alpine Fault starting at the trench's northern end. In July 2009, New Zealand's third-largest recorded earthquake struck close to the northern end of the trench off the coast of Fiordland.

A magnitude 7.2 quake hit the trench itself in November 2004. Puysegur Trench
