Rippon Glacier

Rippon Glacier is a small glacier located in Kemp Land, East Antarctica. It is close east of flowing southward into Edward VIII Ice Shelf. Rippon Glacier was mapped from aerial photos taken by ANARE in 1956, named for Sgt. Ralph. Rippon, RAAF, airframe fitter at Mawson Station in 1959. Just to the south of Rippon Glacier is a large valley formed by the Wilma Glaciers; these two glaciers, along with the Seaton and Rippon Glaciers, all flow into the King Edward Ice Shelf. To the west are the Napier Mountains, running northwest from Mount Elkins. Still further west are the Tula Mountains, beyond which the Beaver Glacier flows into Amundsen Bay. Collectively, these terrain features modify weather produced by synoptic scale systems. Dramatic changes can occur in short time intervals. One problem with some moist southeasterly airstreams is cloud formation northwest of Seaton and Rippon Glaciers that produces whiteout conditions looking inland of Rippon Depot; the following species have been sighted within 1.0 degrees of Rippon Glacier: Buellia frigida Caloplaca athallina Caloplaca citrina Candelariella flava Japewia tornoensis Lecanora expectans Physcia caesia Physcia dubia Pseudephebe minuscula Rinodina olivaceobrunnea Xanthoria mawsonii The following species have been sighted within 1.0 degrees of Rippon Glacier: Enderby Land List of glaciers in the Antarctic Glaciology "Rippon Glacier".

Sneden's Star

BPS CS22892-0052 is an old population II star located at a distance of 4.7 kpc in the galactic halo. It belongs to a class of ultra-metal-poor stars the rare subclass of neutron-capture enhanced stars, it was discovered by Tim C. Beers and collaborators with the Curtis Schmidt telescope at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory in Chile. Extended high-resolution spectroscopic observations since around 1995 allowed observers to determine the abundances of 53 chemical elements in this star, as of December 2005 only second in number to the Sun. From barium on, all elements show the pattern of the r-process contribution to the abundances of the elements in the Solar System. Comparing the observed abundances for a stable element such as europium and the radioactive element thorium to calculated abundances of an r-process in a type II supernova explosion have allowed observers to determine the age of this star to be about 13 billion years. Similar ages have been derived for other ultra-metal-poor stars from thorium-to-uranium ratios.

Tommen Baratheon

Tommen Baratheon is a fictional character in the A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels by American author George R. R. Martin, its television adaptation Game of Thrones. Introduced in 1996's A Game of Thrones, Tommen Baratheon is the youngest son of Cersei Lannister from the kingdom of Westeros, he subsequently appeared in Martin's A Clash of Kings, A Storm of Swords, A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons. After the unexpected death of his brother Joffrey Baratheon, he is crowned King of the Seven Kingdoms, although he soon falls under the warring influences of his mother Cersei and wife Margaery. Tommen Baratheon is portrayed by Callum Wharry and Dean-Charles Chapman in the HBO television adaptation. Prince Tommen Baratheon is the younger brother of Joffrey and Princess Myrcella and is second in line for the throne. Tommen is Queen Cersei Lannister's youngest son and, like his siblings, he is the son of Cersei's brother Jaime Lannister, but he is unaware of this, as he believes Robert Baratheon to be his father.

Tommen is weak-willed. Many characters in the narrative believe he would make a better, more pliant, king than his brother Joffrey, he loves his kittens, keeps several in both the novels and television show. Tommen is seven years old at the beginning of A Game of Thrones. Tommen Baratheon is not a point of view character in the novels, so his actions are witnessed and interpreted through the eyes of other people, such as his mother Cersei Lannister, his uncle Tyrion Lannister, Sansa Stark. Tommen is a background character in the novels. After King Joffrey's death in A Storm of Swords, Tommen is crowned and marries Joffrey's young widow, Margaery Tyrell. Tommen is a submissive child and, as a result, does everything, asked of him. Thus, Cersei uses him to rule as she likes, though Margaery begins to manipulate him into resisting his mother. Young actor Callum Wharry portrayed Tommen in the first and second season and was recast with Dean-Charles Chapman from the fourth season onwards; when Myrcella was shipped off to Dorne as part of a marriage alliance with the Lannisters, Tommen wept when his sister left, for which Joffrey chastised him.

During the battle of the Blackwater, Cersei was prepared to give him nightshade drops for a quick painless death rather than brutality, until Tywin announced that they won the battle. Tommen is present at Margaery's wedding, he attended Joffrey's funeral, after which Tywin uses a rhetorical dialectic to counsel Tommen on wisdom, the duties of a king and his marriage, ignoring Cersei's angry glares. Margaery visits Tommen one night. Discussing Joffrey's cruelties to them, helps he and Margaery to bond. Tommen agrees; the older and much less naive Margaery departs. A ceremony is held in the Red Keep where the high septon crowns Tommen as king. At Tyrion's trial Tommen recuses himself from the trial on Tywin's advice. During the wake of his deceased grandfather, Tommen is approached by Margaery, who shares a few close words with him and holds his hand briefly. All of this is observed by Cersei from afar. Tommen and Margaery marry and consummate that same night, whereupon Margaery begins to manipulate Tommen to send Cersei back to Casterly Rock.

When he does, Cersei begins scheming to get rid of the Tyrells through the High Sparrow and Faith Militant by arranging them to arrest Loras Tyrell for his homosexuality and Margaery for her knowledge of this. However, Cersei's plan backfires and she is arrested. Tommen falls into a depression, refusing to eat. Tommen confines Cersei to the Red Keep after her release, in order to protect her from the Faith Militant. However, Tommen is manipulated by the High Sparrow to forge an alliance with the Faith, he abolishes trial by combat, replacing it with trial by seven septons. Rather than attend her trial, Cersei detonates a cache of wildfire beneath the Sept of Baelor, killing the High Sparrow and Margaery in the explosion. Tommen is barred in his quarters by witnesses the explosion from his window. After a servant informs him of Margaery's death, he commits suicide by jumping from the Red Keep. Cersei orders him cremated and assumes his title as ruler of the Seven Kingdoms

Giuseppe Duprà

Giuseppe Duprà was an Italian painter born at Turin, active in the eighteenth century. In Turin, Kingdom of Sardinia with his elder brother Domenico, Giuseppe Duprà studied in Rome in his youth, as a disciple of Marco Benefial, from 1750, he began painting in the service of King Charles Emmanuel III in the Piedmontese capital, recommended by art enthusiast the Roman cardinal Alessandro Albani. In collaboration with his brother, he created portraits and works aimed not only to the Savoyard House, but to the most important royal families: works were commissioned from Paris, Madrid and Bavaria. Among his works, are seven portraits of Savoyard princesses preserved today at the Palazzina Di Caccia of Stupinigi, various decorative overdoors for the residence of Venaria and a large painting depicting the family of Vittorio Amedeo III, in the Royal Palace of Turin. Duprà died at Turin in an advanced age, in 1784
