Vincenzo "Enzo" Daniele Scifo is a retired Belgian football midfielder, regarded as one of Belgium's greatest footballers. He has managed the Belgium national under-21 football team and several Belgian club sides, he played for clubs in Belgium and Italy, where he won several domestic titles. At international level, he was a member of the Belgian national team, for which he appeared in four FIFA World Cups, being one of three Belgian players to do so. Scifo was born in Wallonia, to Italian parents from Sicily, he proved himself a promising talent in youth football and was nicknamed "Little Pelé" at his local team, where he scored 432 goals in only four seasons as a junior. Scifo joined his local club R. A. A. Louviéroise as a seven-year-old in 1973, he transferred to Belgium's most successful club, R. S. C. Anderlecht, in 1982. Scifo made his first team debut with R. S. C. Anderlecht in 1983, at the age of 17. After winning three Belgian First Division championships with the club, helping the team to the 1984 UEFA Cup Final, only to lose out to Tottenham on penalties, Scifo earned a reputation as one of the most promising young stars of his generation, moved to Italian club Internazionale in 1987 for a fee of 7.5 billion Lire.

After an unsuccessful spell in Milan, which saw him manage only four league goals in 28 appearances, he moved to French club Bordeaux in 1988 where he again disappointed, faced injuries and conflict with senior squad members. His career was revived by a successful move to Auxerre in 1989, at the age of 23, under manager Guy Roux, which led to a return to Italy with Torino in 1991. Scifo moved to AS Monaco in 1993, where he endured a similar level of success and won the French championship in 1997, he returned to Anderlecht that year and won his fourth Belgian league title in the 1999–2000 season. He joined Charleroi in 2000, but retired in the same season, at the age of 36, after being diagnosed with chronic arthritis. In total, Scifo scored. Scifo made his senior international debut on 6 June 1984 for Belgium, in a 2–2 friendly draw against Hungary. In Belgium's opening group match of UEFA Euro 1984, on 13 June, he attracted much publicity when he helped his team to a 2–0 victory over Yugoslavia.

Scifo featured in all three of Belgium's group matches in the tournament, as they placed third in their group and suffered a first round elimination. He appeared for Belgium in the 1986, 1990, 1994, 1998 World Cups, playing sixteen games in total. Scifo helped his nation to the semi-finals of the 1986 edition of the tournament in Mexico, playing in all seven of his team's matches and scoring two goals as Belgium finished the tournament in fourth place. In the 1990 edition of the tournament, held in Italy, Scifo scored a notable goal from long range in Belgium's 3-1 first round victory over Uruguay, on 17 June, held in Verona. Belgium were eliminated in the second round against England. S. A.'94, the Belgian side were once again eliminated in the second round. Scifo retired from international football after Belgium's first round elimination in the 1998 World Cup held in France. A creative midfielder with an eye for goal, Scifo was a classic number 10 playmaker who played as an attacking midfielder behind the strikers.

Considered one of Belgium's greatest players, his primary traits as a footballer were his excellent vision, tactical intelligence, technical skills, which allowed him to orchestrate his team's attacking moves from midfield. However, despite his talent, he was criticised by his managers at times for his poor defensive work-rate off the ball, his introverted character, for being selfish and inefficient at times, in particular in his youth, as he attempted too many individual dribbling runs, rather than looking to provide a simpler pass to an open teammate. Throughout his career, his unique playing style drew comparisons with Gianni Rivera, Giancarlo Antognoni, his idol Michel Platini. Scifo tried his hand at coaching with R. Charleroi S. C. joining them for the 2000–01 season. Indifferent results led to his resignation in June 2002, he coached Tubize between 2004 and 2006, became head trainer of R. E. Mouscron, another Belgian League team, in 2007. On 6 June 2009 Scifo quit Mouscron due to the club's difficult financial situation.

In May 2006, he was part of the historic first European Selection, led by former England manager Terry Venables and Josep Mª Fusté which had its début in Eindhoven in the first EFPA Match. Scifo returned to club football with Mons between 2012 and 2013. Between 2015 and 2016, he served as the manager o

2nd Light Division (Wehrmacht)

The 2nd Light Division was a motorized division created in 1938 during the German rearmament. It participated in the invasion of Poland. After the end of the Polish campaign the division was converted into a panzer division, forming the 7th Panzer Division; the 2nd Light Division created on 10 November 1938 from the region of Thuringia. The light divisions were created under the instigation of the cavalry arm of the German Army, who feared their scouting and screening roles were being taken over by the Panzerwaffe; the division was designed to provide mobility and some armoured protection to its forces, was composed of the 6th and 7th Mechanized Cavalry Regiments, the 7th Reconnaissance Regiment, the 66th Panzer Battalion. These were supported by the 78th Artillery Regiment, the 58th Engineer Battalion and the 42nd Anti-tank Battalion, its single panzer battalion was equipped with the Panzer I training tank and the Panzer II interim production tank. Both these vehicles were small armed and armoured.

In 1939 the division was part of the German 10th Army during the Invasion of Poland. At the outset of the invasion of Poland 1 September 1939, the 2nd Light Division fought its way through the frontier defenses and overran the Warta district, pushing on to reach the outskirts of Warsaw, it was wheeled back to help deal with the Polish counteroffensive and helped form the encirclement of the Polish forces at Radom 8 September through the 12 September. Here the bulk of the Polish army was destroyed; the division drove north to reach the Bzura river before turning east and making a drive for Warsaw and the Vistula. Warsaw surrendered on 27 September; the division remained in Poland until 1 October. Following the campaign in Poland the limited effectiveness of the light divisions caused the German command to order the reorganization of the four light divisions to full panzer divisions. In October 1939 the 2nd Light Division became the 7th Panzer Division.

Northeast India

Northeast India is the easternmost region of India representing both a geographic and political administrative division of the country. It comprises eight states – Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland and Tripura; the region shares an international border of 5,182 kilometres with several neighbouring countries – 1,395 kilometres with Tibet Autonomous Region, China in the north, 1,640 kilometres with Myanmar in the east, 1,596 kilometres with Bangladesh in the south-west, 97 kilometres with Nepal in the west, 455 kilometres with Bhutan in the north-west. It comprises an area of 262,230 square kilometres 8 percent of that of India, is one of the largest salients in the world; the states of North Eastern Region are recognised under the North Eastern Council, constituted in 1971 as the acting agency for the development of the north eastern states. Long after induction of NEC, Sikkim formed part of the North Eastern Region as the eighth state in 2002. India's Look-East connectivity projects connect Northeast India to China and ASEAN.

Guwahati city in Assam is called the Gateway to the North East and is the Largest Metropolis in North East India. The earliest settlers may have been Austroasiatic languages speakers from Southeast Asia, followed by Tibeto-Burmese from China and by 500 B. C. Indo-Aryans speakers from Gangetic Plains. Due to the bio- and crop diversity of the region, archaeological researchers believe that early settlers of Northeast India had domesticated several important plants. Writers believe that the 100 BC writings of Chinese explorer, Zhang Qian indicate an early trade route via Northeast India; the Periplus of the Erythraean Sea mention a people called Sêsatai in the region, who produced malabathron, so prized in the old world. In the early historical period, Kamarupa straddled most of present-day Northeast India, besides Bhutan and Sylhet in Bangladesh. Xuanzang, a travelling Chinese Buddhist monk, visited Kamarupa in the 7th century, he described the people as "short in stature and black-looking", whose speech differed a little from mid-India and who were of simple but violent disposition.

He wrote that the people in Kamarupa knew of Sichuan, which lay to the kingdom's east beyond a treacherous mountain. The northeastern states were established during the British Raj of the 19th and early 20th centuries, when they became isolated from traditional trading partners such as Bhutan and Myanmar. Many of the peoples in present-day Mizoram and Nagaland converted to Christianity under the influence of British missionaries. In the early 19th century, both the Ahom and the Manipur kingdoms fell to a Burmese invasion; the ensuing First Anglo-Burmese War resulted in the entire region coming under British control. In the colonial period, North East India was made a part of Bengal Province from 1839 to 1873, after which Colonial Assam became its own province, but which included Sylhet. After Indian Independence from British Rule in 1947, the Northeastern region of British India consisted of Assam and the princely states of Manipur and Tripura. Subsequently, Nagaland in 1963, Meghalaya in 1972, Arunachal Pradesh in 1975 and Mizoram in 1987 were formed out of the large territory of Assam.

Manipur and Tripura remained as Union Territories of India between 1956 until 1972, when they attained fully-fledged statehood. Sikkim was integrated as the eighth North Eastern Council state in 2002; the city of Shillong served. It remained as the capital of undivided Assam until the formation of the state of Meghalaya in 1972; the capital of Assam was shifted to Dispur, a part of Guwahati, Shillong was designated as the capital of Meghalaya. In 1944, the Japanese planned a daring attack on India. Traveling through Burma, its forces were stopped at Imphal by British and Indian troops; this marked the furthest western expansion of the Japanese Empire. Arunachal Pradesh, a state in the Northeastern tip of India, is claimed by China as north Tibet]]. Sino-Indian relations degraded, resulting in the Sino-Indian War of 1962; the cause of the escalation into war is still disputed by both Indian sources. During the war in 1962, the PRC captured much of the NEFA created by India in 1954, but on 21 November 1962, China declared a unilateral ceasefire, withdrew its troops 20 kilometres behind the McMahon Line.

It returned Indian prisoners of war in 1963. The Seven Sister States is a popular term for the contiguous states of Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Mizoram and Tripura prior to inclusion of the state of Sikkim into the North Eastern Region of India; the sobriquet'Land of the Seven Sisters' was coined to coincide with the inauguration of the new states in January 1972 by Jyoti Prasad Saikia, a journalist in Tripura, in the course of a radio talk show. He compiled a book on the interdependence and commonness of the Seven Sister States, named it the Land of Seven Sisters, it has been because of this publication that the nickname has caught on. The Northeast region can be physiographically categorised into the Eastern Himalaya, the Patkai and the Brahmaputra and the Barak valley plains. Northeast India has a predominantly humid sub-tropical climate with hot, humid summers, severe monsoons, mild winters. Along with the we

Kremmling, Colorado

The Town of Kremmling is a Statutory Town in Grand County, United States. The town population was 1444 at the 2010 United States Census; the town sits along the upper Colorado River in the lower arid section of Middle Park between Byers Canyon and Gore Canyon. The town was founded in 1881 during the Colorado Silver Boom days, but the lack of mineral resources in the nearby mountains made the town grow slowly in the early days; the settlement started with only a general store, run by a man named Rudolph "Kare" Kremmling, built on the north side of Muddy Creek. In 1881, two brothers and John Kinsey, made part of their ranch into a town and called it Kinsey City. Kare moved his store across the river to the new site and soon people were calling this place Kremmling; the original post office was called Kinsey City and ran from 1881 to 1885, with Kare Kremmling the first postmaster. The name Kremmling was not recognized until 1895. After the Moffat railroad—the Denver, Northwestern & Pacific Railway—arrived in July 1906, Kremmling became the county's central shipping point.
