Annika Langvad

Annika Langvad is a Danish cyclist, who rides for Specialized Racing in cross-country mountain bike racing. Langvad is a five-time world champion in mountain bike racing, winning four titles in mountain bike marathon and one in cross-country. At the 2012 Summer Olympics, she was due to compete in the Women's cross-country at Hadleigh Farm, but had to withdraw two weeks before due to a broken rib. At the 2016 Summer Olympics, she placed 11th in the Women's cross-country. From 2014, Langvad and her Swiss Spur-Specialized teammate Ariane Kleinhans won the women's category of Absa Cape Epic three consecutive times. In 2015, they won by a significant margin of 18 minutes. In 2015, Langvad won the Leadville 100, becoming the first woman to ride that race under 7 hours. In 2016, Langvad won the world championship in Women's cross-country and placed an impressive second in the UCI World Cup rankings for Cross Country, only 24 points behind the leader, Catharine Pendrel.

Off-side rule

A computer programming language is said to adhere to the off-side rule if blocks in that language are expressed by their indentation. The term was coined by Peter J. Landin as a pun on the offside rule in football; this is contrasted with free-form languages, notably curly-bracket programming languages, where indentation is not meaningful and indent style is only a matter of convention and code formatting. Peter J. Landin, in an article called "The Next 700 Programming Languages", defined the off-side rule thus: "Any non-whitespace token to the left of the first such token on the previous line is taken to be the start of a new declaration." The following is an example of indentation blocks in Python. The colons are part of the Python language syntax for readability. In Python, the rule is taken to define the boundaries of statements rather than declarations. Python suspends the off-side rule within brackets. A statement within brackets continues; the off-side rule can be implemented in the lexical analysis phase, as in Python, where increasing the indentation results in the lexer outputting an INDENT token, decreasing the indentation results in the lexer outputting a DEDENT token.

These tokens correspond to the opening brace in languages that use braces for blocks, means that the phrase grammar does not depend on whether braces or indentation are used. This requires that the lexer hold state, namely the current indentation level, thus can detect changes in indentation when this changes, thus the lexical grammar is not context-free – INDENT/DEDENT depend on the contextual information of previous indentation level; the primary alternative to delimiting blocks, popularized by C, is to ignore whitespace and mark blocks explicitly with curly brackets or some other delimiter. While this allows for more freedom – the developer might choose not to indent small pieces of code like the break and continue statements – sloppily indented code might lead the reader astray. Lisp and other S-expression based languages do not differentiate statements from expressions, parentheses are enough to control the scoping of all statements within the language; as in curly bracket languages, whitespace is ignored by the reader.

Whitespace is used to separate tokens. The explicit structure of Lisp code allows it to perform automatic indentation, which acts as a visual cue for human Lisp readers. Another alternative is for each block to end with explicit keywords. For example, in ALGOL 60 and its descendant Pascal blocks start with keyword begin and end with keyword end. In some languages, this means that newlines are important. In BASIC and Fortran, blocks begin with the block name and end with the block name prepended with END. In Fortran and every block can have its own unique block name, which adds an additional level of explicitness to lengthy code. ALGOL 68 and the Bourne shell are similar, but the ending of the block is given by the name of the block written backward. An interesting variation on this is made by Modula-2, a Pascal-like language which does away with the difference between one and multiline blocks; this allows the block opener to be skipped for all but the function level block, requiring only a block terminating token.

It fixes dangling else. Custom is for the end token to be placed on the same indentation level as the rest of the block, giving a blockstructure, readable. One advantage to the Fortran approach is that it improves readability of long, nested, or otherwise complex code. A group of outdents or closing brackets alone does not provide any contextual cues as to which blocks are being closed, necessitating backtracking, closer scrutiny while debugging. In addition, languages that allow a suffix for END-like keywords further improve such cues, such as continue versus continue for x. However, modern code editing applications provide visual indicators and features such as folding to assist with these drawbacks.

Christine Danelson

Christine Danelson is an American actress best known as the understudy for the role of Tracy in the national tour of the Broadway musical Hairspray. Danelson performed as Tracy nearly 60 times during the tour, was critically well-regarded, with one Reno reviewer commenting, "As Tracy, Danelson is the show's centerpiece and she's terrific." Danelson was born in New Jersey. She trained at the Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, New Jersey, at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, New Jersey. Danelson has appeared in two Law & Order episodes and in two feature films, My Sassy Girl and Burn Card. In 2010, she graduated cum laude from Kean University in Union, New Jersey where she was named the 2008 Kean Idol. In June 2010, Christine Danelson was a part of the Off-Broadway production of Cloaked, a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood; that year, she starred as the lead in Hairspray at the Paper Mill Playhouse. Christine was well received at the Paper Mill and received many outstanding reviews.

Peter Filichia of The Star-Ledger suggested that show was better than Broadway stating: One reason “Hairspray” is more believable in Millburn is Christine Danelson. While she dons the requisite fat suit to display Tracy’s girth, Danelson is one of the most attractive young women to have played the role, and she seems to go from one frenetic dance number to the next without shedding a single bead of perspiration." The New York Times offered its opinion of Danelson's performance at the Paper Mill: "A young veteran of the show’s national tour, Christine Danelson is a joyful sweetheart as Tracy, with a mischievous Bette Midleresque face and a strong, yet fittingly cooing voice. Effortlessly gyrating through the dances — when she snapped a shoe strap during the finale on opening night — Ms. Danelson blesses Tracy with a touch of vulnerability that makes viewers root for her ingenuous character’s triumph over Baltimore’s racism and skinnier girls."

Satoshi Fukuda

Satoshi Fukuda is a Japanese Nippon Professional Baseball pitcher who last played for the Yomiuri Giants in Japan's Central League. In October, 2015, Fukuda was named as a result of an investigation conducted by the Giants into illegal betting on professional and high school baseball games by its players. On 9 November 2015, the Giants organization terminated Fukuda's contract, along with fellow pitchers Shoki Kasahara and Ryuya Matsumoto. On 10 November the NPB league commissioner penalized the three players with indefinite disqualification. Under league rules, Fukuda will be able to apply for readmission to the league after 5 years if he satisfies the commissioner that he is remorseful for his actions; the disqualification extends to American Major League Baseball and the professional leagues in China and Taiwan. The players avoided permanent disqualification because the investigation found no evidence that they were involved in fixing matches; the Giants were fined ¥10 million over the incident and the team's representative at the NPB, Atsushi Harasawa, resigned to take responsibility.
