Ethel Apartment House

The Ethel Apartment House is a historic apartment building at 70 Patton Street in the North End of Springfield, Massachusetts. The four story red brick building was built in 1912 for Jacob Blisky, a successful local retailer, at a cost of $14,000, it was designed by Burton Gechler, a local architect who designed a number of other apartment blocks during the 1910s. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987; the Ethel Apartment House stands on the northwest side of Patton Street, facing the highway ramps of the interchange between Interstate 291 and Interstate 91. It is a four-story red brick structure; the outer sections are rounded bays set on raised simulated ashlar stone foundations, with two sash windows in each bay on each level. The main entrance is in the center section, with three sets of paired windows above, offset from those of the flanking sections. All the windows have lintels of cast stone similar to the foundation material. A tin cornice extends around the building below the roof.

The building interior is modern. Built in 1912, this building is one of a small number of apartment blocks built in this area of the city, replaced one and two-family houses that had lined the street; this building is one of a small number of buildings of that period to survive large-scale urban renewal activities of the 1960s that razed much of the North End.

The Catwalk

"The Catwalk" is the thirty-eighth episode of the television series Star Trek: Enterprise. The entire crew is forced to find refuge inside one of the starship's warp nacelles to survive a radiation storm that the Enterprise encounters; this episode aired on December 18, 2002. In this science fiction story, a starship takes on some passengers and encounters a space storm, that necessitates them taking refuge in a cramped tube-like section of ship. However, as the time passes tensions rise and the motives of the passengers they took on are questioned by their behavior. Captain Archer prepares to lead a survey team to an uninhabited planet, when Enterprise is hailed by a trio of aliens, who warn him that a deadly neutronic wavefront, many light years across, is approaching at a speed close to warp 7. Since his warp 5 ship cannot outrun the storm, Archer soon concludes that everyone must take shelter in order to survive the storm's radiation. Commander Tucker suggests that the one shielded place on board that might suffice for the eight-day ordeal is the catwalk, a maintenance shaft that runs the length of each nacelle.

Only one problem – the temperature there can reach 300 °C degrees when the warp coils are online, so he will have to keep the main reactor offline. With only four hours to prepare, everyone evacuates to the catwalk; the storm soon envelops the ship, as the days wear on, nerves fray – with the alien guests, who start up a barbecue near a flammable conduit. To make matters worse and Archer discover a problem in Engineering as the injectors have come online. Tucker cannot shut them down from the catwalk, his EV suit will only protect him for 22 minutes. In Engineering, he soon notices an alien ship docked alongside, alien intruders, who appear to be interfering with the ship's systems. Doctor Phlox deduces that the aliens are immune to the effects of radiation; when confronted, the trio confesses that the other aliens are looking for them. They explain that they were officers in the Takret Militia, but they deserted when they learned that the commanding officers were corrupt. To defend the ship, Sub-Commander T'Pol, Lieutenant Reed suit up, while T'Pol and Reed work to shut down the warp reactor, Archer hails the alien leader, pretending to be the sole surviving crewmember from the effects of the storm.

He demands they leave, playing a game of chicken with the intruders, orders Ensign Mayweather to head straight for a plasma eddy. As T'Pol and Reed succeed in shutting the reactor down, the intruders abandon ship. Soon after, as they clear the storm, the original alien visitors apologize for all the trouble they have caused, depart; the first home media release of "The Catwalk" was as part of the season two DVD box set, released in the United States on July 26, 2005.

Chief of Army (Australia)

The Chief of Army is the most senior appointment in the Australian Army, responsible to both the Chief of the Defence Force and the Secretary, Department of Defence. The rank associated with the position is lieutenant general. Lieutenant General Richard Burr, the incumbent Chief of Army, has held the post since 2 July 2018; the first Commander of the Australian Army was titled General Officer Commanding, Australian Military Forces, in line with the usual British practice of the time. Experience soon showed that the position concentrated more power than the Ministers for Defence—of whom there were twelve in as many years in 1901–1913—liked. Moreover, the British Army had encountered administrative problems in the Second Boer War which led to the abolition of the position of Commander-in-Chief of the Forces there in 1904, its replacement by an Army Board. In 1904, Minister for Defence Anderson Dawson commissioned a report which recommended a similar system for Australia, with a Military Board consisting of four military members, the minister, a finance member.

This was implemented by James Whiteside McCay. However instead of creating a Chief of the General Staff as per the report, McCay's Military Board consisted of only three military members, the Deputy Adjutant General, the Chief of Ordnance, the Chief of Intelligence; the post of Chief of the General Staff was created by the new Minister of Defence, George Pearce, in 1909, with Colonel William Bridges becoming the first Chief of the General Staff. The military members of the Military Board became the Chief of the General Staff, Adjutant General, Chief of Ordnance, Quartermaster General. During the Second World War, the threat of invasion led to a reversion to the old system. A Commander in Chief, General Sir Thomas Blamey, was appointed, the Military Board was suspended, with its powers being transferred to the Commander in Chief; the post of Chief of the General Staff was now subordinate to the Commander in Chief. This was successful from a military point of view but the problem of a concentration of power recurred and, after the war ended, the government decided to re-form the Military Board.

Blamey was replaced by Lieutenant General Vernon Sturdee in 1945 and the next year the post of Commander in Chief was again abolished, with Sturdee becoming Chief of the General Staff. The system continued until the reforms of Arthur Tange in 1973; the three services were unified under the Department of Defence. The Military Board was abolished and the Chief of the General Staff became subordinate to the Chief of the Defence Force Staff and the Secretary of Defence. Reflecting this change from a staff to a command role, the post was renamed Chief of Army in 1997; the following table lists all those who have held the post of Chief of Army or its preceding positions.
