Encyclopedia of Australian Rock and Pop

The Encyclopedia of Australian Rock and Pop or Rock and Pop by Australian music journalist Ian McFarlane is a guide to Australian popular music from the 1950s to the late 1990s. The encyclopedia was described in Australian Music Guide as "the most exhaustive and wide-ranging encyclopedia of Australian music from the 1950s onwards"; the encyclopedia is out of print, but was for a time available on the whammo.com.au online record store, is still in the Internet Archive. In 2017 the second edition was published by Third Stone Press. Publishers, Allen & Unwin describe McFarlane's encyclopedia as containing over 870 entries and is an "essential reference to the bands and artists who molded the shape of Australian popular music in an A-to-Z encyclopedia format complete with biographical and historical details; each entry includes listings of original band lineups and subsequent changes, record releases, career highlights, cross-references with related bands and artists."The book has a similar title to the 1978 work by Noel McGrath, Australian Encyclopaedia of Rock and Pop.

The second edition appeared in 2017 and was updated to 2016. Steven Carroll of The Sydney Morning Herald opined that "Any survey of Australian pop and rock that includes entries on such bands as Serious Young Insects is a serious tome. It's so easy to get lost in this revised edition: one band leading to another, so on, until you're asking yourself what happened to the last hour."

Melancthon S. Wade

Melancthon Smith Wade was a businessman and soldier from the state of Ohio who served as a general in the Union Army during the early part of the American Civil War. Melancthon Wade, the son of an American Revolutionary War officer and prisoner-of-war, Daniel Everett Wade, was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, he was educated in the local schools and opened a dry goods business that proved so successful that Wade was able to retire in 1840 at the age of 38. Concurrently with his business endeavors, he served with the Ohio Militia from 1825 until 1849, rising through the ranks from sergeant to brigadier general. Wade married Eliza Armstrong on 27 Aug 1823, they had six children. When the Civil War erupted in 1861, Wade was 58 years old, he volunteered his services to the Union Army and received a commission as a brigadier general on October 1 at the recommendation of Ormsby Mitchel.

Spriggs Payne Airport

James Spriggs Payne Airport is an airport located 5 kilometres from downtown Monrovia, the capital of the Republic of Liberia in West Africa. The airfield is located within the busy and thickly settled Sinkor section of the city, is therefore convenient to the business and political districts of the capital. Whereas Roberts International Airport is the primary aviation facility for the city and indeed the entire country, Spriggs-Payne has the only other paved runway in Liberia and only other international commercial flights into and out of Liberia; the airport is named after James Spriggs Payne, president of the Republic of Liberia in 1868–70 and again in 1876–78. Spriggs-Payne was the primary location for domestic services within Liberia since the 1950s. Since early 1991, Spriggs-Payne has handled limited international flights; the airport served as a base for ECOMOG troops during the Liberian Civil War and suffered damage during that conflict, including a rocket attack by rebels in April 1996 which destroyed several aircraft.

From 2008 until mid-2010, scheduled commercial services were operated by Cameroon-based Elysian Airlines. The carrier established a significant operation at Spriggs-Payne, with weekly services to Freetown, Sierra Leone. Elysian connected the airport to several domestic destinations, with a weekly round-trip to Harper, occasional stops in Greenville. Elysian ceased operating in mid-2010, the airport was left for a period without any scheduled commercial service. In 2010, Ethiopian Airlines changed its operations to Liberia, withdrawing its mainline jet services from Robertsfield to Accra and Addis Ababa; this was replaced by the services of its affiliate, ASKY Airlines which began operating from Spriggs-Payne, flying to Accra and Abidjan with onward service to its hub at Lomé. In early 2011, the Banjul service was dropped, the Abidjan service was substituted for a weekly non-stop flight to Bamako. In January 2011, newly formed Fly 6ix designated as the new national airline of Sierra Leone began operating from Freetown with a single Embraer ERJ-135 regional jet.

The airline's network included twice-weekly service to Spriggs-Payne from Freetown and Conakry, with connecting service to Banjul, although the airline had ceased operations by 2012. Spriggs-Payne underwent a runway refurbishment during 2011 and 2012, necessitating the cessation of most flight operations. During this construction, ASKY transferred its Liberia operations to Robertsfield. However, once the runway resurfacing was complete, ASKY returned to Spriggs in mid-2013, as of April 2014 offered a daily flight to Accra with onward same-plane service to Lomé, as well as multi-week flights to Lungi International Airport in Sierra Leone, a new service to Bissau; as of November 2014, Spriggs Payne Airport were suspended due to the ongoing ebola outbreak in Liberia. ASKY resumed flights to Monrovia starting November 2017; the airport facility consists of a collection of single-story buildings. The terminal itself has a passenger x-ray screening area at the entrance, a waiting room with satellite televisions, a small bar.

The airport is equipped with immigration facilities to handle international arrivals. Elysian Airlines operates a ticket office outside the terminal building, the United Nations occupies several operational offices facing the airside tarmac. In fact, the primary activity at Spriggs Payne consists of UN aircraft operations. On 10 June 1978, Vickers Viscount 9G-AGL of West African Air Cargo was damaged beyond economic repair when the undercarriage collapsed on landing.

Jordan 192

The Jordan 192 was a Formula One car designed by Gary Anderson for the Jordan Grand Prix team for the 1992 Formula One season. The number 32 seat was taken by Stefano Modena and the number 33 seat was taken by Maurício Gugelmin, both new to the team. After a somewhat successful 1991 debut season the team had lost their supply of Ford engines due to large debts. Instead Jordan signed a contract to run the Yamaha OX99 3.5L V12, supplied for free. One of the problems was that the team had begun work on the 192 in the expectation that it would continue to run the Ford V8 engine rather than a much larger V12 Yamaha; the team's new main sponsor was Sasol, replacing 7UP. Compared to their successful debut season, 1992 was a total catastrophe for Jordan; the team struggled badly with reliability issues, with Gugelmin retiring from seven of the first nine races and Modena failing to finish a race until the twelfth race of the season at Spa. Modena failed to qualify four times in a car, slower than its predecessor.

The team failed to score a point until the final race of the season in Australia, when Modena finished 6th. Jordan finished 11th in the Constructors' Championship, with 1 point; the 192 was replaced by the Hart V10-powered Jordan 193. Results in bold indicate.
