FA Cup Final

The FA Cup Final referred to in England as just the Cup Final, is the last match in the Football Association Challenge Cup. It is one of the most attended domestic football events in the world, with an official attendance of 89,472 at the 2017 final; the match is the culmination of a knockout competition among clubs belonging to The Football Association in England, although Scottish and Irish teams competed in the early years and Welsh teams compete, with Cardiff City winning the Cup in 1927 and reaching the final in 1925 and 2008. Since 1923 it has been played at Wembley Stadium; as of 2019, 138 FA Cup Finals have been played. The latest final was held on 18 May 2019 and was contested between Manchester City and Watford, with Manchester City winning 6–0; the quickest goal goal scored in a final was Luis Saha for Everton against Chelsea 2009. In 1966 Everton got the final with nil conceded until the final when they won 3 2 against Sheffield Wednesday. Same year England won the World Cup win 2 Everton players The first FA Cup Final was held at Kennington Oval on 16 March 1872 and was contested between Wanderers and Royal Engineers, with Wanderers winning 1–0.

After the 1873 final was held at Lillie Bridge, the event was held at the Oval until 1892. The 1893 and 1894 finals were held at Fallowfield Stadium in Manchester and Goodison Park in Liverpool, before the event returned to London in 1895, being held at Crystal Palace until the outbreak of World War I. After the war, the event was held at Stamford Bridge, before Wembley Stadium opened in 1923; the first final at Wembley, in which Bolton Wanderers beat West Ham United 2–0, had an official attendance of 126,047, although the actual figure is believed to be as much as 300,000. It is known as the "White Horse Final", after a police horse named'Billy' was used to restore order after the huge crowd spilled onto the field; the 1927 final saw "Abide with Me" being sung for the first time at the Cup final, which has become a pre-match tradition. Wembley continued to host the final until 2000; the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff hosted the final between 2001 and 2006, before the new Wembley Stadium opened in 2007.

Up to and including 1998, if the final ended in a draw, a replay would be required. This occurred on the last being in 1993 between Arsenal and Sheffield Wednesday. In September 1998, the Football Association decided that all future finals would be decided "on the day", meaning that a penalty shootout would decide the winner if the score was level after normal and extra time. Two finals since have been decided by a penalty shootout, those of 2005 and 2006. Stan Mortensen's hat-trick for Blackpool in 1953 is the only hat trick scored at Wembley in the competition's final. Everton's Louis Saha scored a goal after 27.9 seconds in the 2009 FA Cup Final. It is the fastest goal in FA Cup Final history. Bury's 6–0 victory over Derby County in the 1903 FA Cup Final and Manchester City's 6-0 victory over Watford 2019 FA Cup Final are the largest winning margins. With his goal in the 2012 Final, Chelsea's Didier Drogba became the first man to score a goal in four different Finals; the FA Cup Final is one of ten events reserved for live broadcast on UK terrestrial television under the Ofcom Code on Sports and Other Listed and Designated Events.

During his time in Parliament, Bernardi attracted controversy over several views. On 7 February 2017, he announced that he would be leaving the Liberal Party to form his own party, the Australian Conservatives. In June 2019, Bernardi announced that he was disbanding the Australian Conservatives and the party was voluntarily deregistered by the Australian Electoral Commission on 25 June 2019.

Bernardi was born and raised in Adelaide and attended Prince Alfred College in Kent Town, South Australia. His father was an Italian immigrant who came to Australia in 1958, his maternal grandfather was a trade unionist and staunch Labor supporter. Bernardi took a business and management course at South Australian Institute of Technology before winning a scholarship and furthering his rowing career at the Australian Institute of Sport in 1989. After a back injury terminated his rowing career, Bernardi travelled Europe and Africa, working as a labourer. Returning to Australia, he managed the family's hotel before spending four months in a hospital with tuberculosis, he subsequently worked as financial adviser before entering politics. Bernardi and his Irish-born wife Sinéad, an economics graduate, have two sons. Bernardi made state representative appearances for South Australia in the State Youth VIII at the Australian Rowing Championships in 1987 and 1988. In 1988, as part of a Mercantile Rowing Club eight, he won the Ladies' Challenge Plate—open to 2nd grade/varsity/college crews below the heavyweight international standard—at the Henley Royal Regatta in England.

In 1989, Bernardi was selected in the seven seat of the South Australian Men's Senior VIII. The nationals interstate events that year were cancelled when a cyclone hit the Wellington Dam course in WA, part-way through the programme of events. Three weeks at Carrum in Victoria, Bernardi's South Australian crew placed 2nd in an unofficial men's eight race attended by the Victorian, Western Australian and South Australian crews who raced for the Patten Cup; that same year Bernardi became an Australian national representative when he was selected in the three seat of the coxless four which competed at the 1989 World Rowing Championships in Bled—formerly of Yugoslavia but what is now the Republic of Slovenia—and placed tenth. That year Bernardi suffered a back injury that ended his rowing career. After South Australian Senator Robert Hill resigned from the Senate to become Ambassador to the United Nations in March 2006, Bernardi was selected by the Liberal Party to fill the vacancy commencing his senate term on 4 May 2006.

On 17 February 2007, Bernardi was pre-selected ahead of Simon Birmingham and Senator Grant Chapman by the State Council of the South Australian Liberal Party to be the number one candidate on the South Australian Liberal Senate ticket for the federal election to be held in late 2007. At the election, Bernardi was elected to a full six-year term, he was again given the first place on the Liberal ticket at the 2013 federal election and was re-elected. Following a double dissolution of Parliament at the 2016 federal election, Bernardi was re-elected from the second place on the Liberal ticket, he was elected for a term of six years, ending on 30 June 2022. In December 2007, Bernardi was appointed the federal Coalition's Shadow Parliamentary Secretary for Families and Community Services. On 19 March 2008, Bernardi was named in a story published in The Australian newspaper as having been linked to a scheme that sold financial advice on how divorcees could hide money from their former spouses. In a media statement released shortly after the article was published, Bernardi described the story as "a rehash of a factually incorrect story that first appeared in 2006 before my appointment to the Senate."

Bernardi claimed that he had been "made aware that a colleague been approaching numerous journalists in an attempt to'push' this matter as a means of attacking me." In a statement he went on to say, "I find it disappointing that there are people who pine to background journalists with half-truths and mischievous suggestions in an attempt to smear others. The people who creep out of their darkened closets to resurrect discredited accusations do no service to themselves or the community. Politics is a battle of ideas, not a battle of smears."On 20 March 2008, Bernardi introduced a motion calling for a Senate inquiry into swearing on television and the effectiveness of the Code of Practice after a television show was broadcast at 8.30 pm containing the word "fuck" eighty times in 40 minutes. The Senate supported the motion. In June, Bernardi stated his personal view on onlineopinion.com.au regarding a proposed reform relating to same-sex relationships. He stated, "Same-sex relationships are not the same as marital relationships and to treat them the same is to suspend common sense."

A month Bernardi questioned the ethics of granting human rights to great apes while ignoring the rights of the unborn child on the ABC "unleashed" website. In August 2008, the Heral

AWS Elastic Beanstalk

AWS Elastic Beanstalk is an orchestration service offered by Amazon Web Services for deploying applications which orchestrates various AWS services, including EC2, S3, Simple Notification Service, CloudWatch and Elastic Load Balancers. Elastic Beanstalk provides an additional layer of abstraction over the bare server and OS. Deployment requires a number of components to be defined: an'application' as a logical container for the project, a'version', a deployable build of the application executable, a'configuration template' that contains configuration information for both the Beanstalk environment and for the product. An'environment' combines a'version' with a'configuration' and deploys them. Executables themselves are uploaded as archive files to S3 beforehand and the'version' is just a pointer to this; the name "Elastic beanstalk" is a reference to the beanstalk that grew all the way up to the clouds in the fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk. Supported applications and software stacks include: Ruby, PHP and Python applications on Apache HTTP Server.

NET Framework applications on IIS 7.5 Java applications on Apache Tomcat Node.js applications Docker containers Supported deployment methods include: Zip files Java Web Application Archive Docker containers Git AWS CloudFormation provides a declarative template-based Infrastructure as Code model for configuring AWS. AWS OpsWorks provides configuration of EC2 services using Chef. Official website
