Gaudeamus Hut

The Gaudeamus Hut is an Alpine club hut in the Kaisergebirge mountains in Tyrol. It is run by the Main-Spessart section of the German Alpine Club; the hut is located on the southern side of the Wilder Kaiser at a height of 1,270 metres where it stands at the foot of the Törlspitzen peaks on an Alpine pasture. From its sun terrace the view extends from the Ellmauer Tor, over to the Karlspitzen peaks and on to the Ellmauer Halt, the highest mountain in the Kaisergebirge range. Several paths and mountain trails branch off near the Gaudeamus Hut and its central location is the main reason for the popularity of this base both with day trippers and with hillwalkers and climbers. By using the toll road, the hut is reached and acts as a starting point for numerous summit ascents and crossings to other places in the Wilder Kaiser, it is staffed from mid-May to mid-October. The Gaudeamus Hut was built in 1899 below the Kübel Cirque by the Academic Alpine Club Section of Berlin, it remained unstaffed until 1911, was temporarily rented to the Kitzbühel section.

In 1924 an avalanche destroyed the hut. In the same year a temporary hut was erected and basic services were provided. In 1927 the Berlin Section built the present hut about 300 metres further east, it survived the Second World War without damage and the tenants changed rarely. After the war it was taken over by the Main-Spessart section, the hut was refurbished and extended in 2003. Since the 2004 season Martin and Anni Leichtfried have been the tenants; the Gaudeamus Hut is popular with day visitors. To reach the hut by car from the Inn Valley Motorway, take the Kufstein-Süd exit and drive along the B173 and B178. From Salzburg drive through Lofer and St. Johann in Tirol along the B178, to Ellmau. Branch off north and join the toll road up to the Wochenbrunner Alm, where there is a large car park at a height of 1,080 metres. By foot, the shortest and quickest way to the hut starts from the Wochenbrunner Alm and runs up to the Gaudeamus Hut in just 30–40 minutes without posing any problems. Possible is the ascent from Scheffau, Ellmau or Going-Prama, each taking about 2 hours.

1983 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship Game

The 1983 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship Game was the final game of the 1983 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament. It determined the national champion for the 1982–83 NCAA Division I men's basketball season; the game was played on April 4, 1983, at The Pit in Albuquerque, New Mexico and paired top-ranked, #1 seed Midwest Regional Champions, the Houston Cougars, sixteenth-ranked, #6 seed West Regional Champions, the NC State Wolfpack. The first half of the national championship game favored NC State. Not only did the Wolfpack lead 33–25, but Houston's Clyde Drexler picked up four first-half fouls; the Cougars opened the second half with a dominating 17–2 run to seize a seven-point lead, 42–35. NC State was able to keep the game close, as Houston's star center Akeem Olajuwon checked out of the game multiple times to receive oxygen, leading the Cougars to slow the pace of the game in order to protect the lead. Tied at 52 with 44 seconds remaining, NC State held the ball for a final shot attempt.

Houston narrowly missed stealing the ball as the clock ticked down. After gathering the ball nearly 30 feet from the basket, Dereck Whittenburg launched a desperation shot that fell short of the rim. Olajuwon hesitated in fear of a goaltending call, allowing Lorenzo Charles to catch the ball and dunk it for the 54–52 victory. One of the indelible images in tournament history is of winning coach Jim Valvano running onto the court after the game ended looking for Whittenburg. NC State's magical, improbable postseason run and national championship win, highlighted by Charles' game-winning dunk, remain a legendary representation of March Madness. Despite a preseason ranking of #16 in the AP poll, the Wolfpack sputtered to a 9–7 record after losing at Maryland on January 29. Three close victories in the ACC Tournament saved NC State from missing the NCAA Tournament altogether. Three of the team's four victories on the road to the Final Four came by two points; the Wolfpack trailed with a minute or less to play in six of their eight postseason games before this game.

West NC State 69, Pepperdine 67 NC State 71, UNLV 70 NC State 75, Utah 56 NC State 63, Virginia 62 Final Four NC State 67, Georgia 60 Houston was ranked #14 in the AP poll to open the season, fell to 5–2 after a 72–63 loss to #1 Virginia in Tokyo on December 16, 1982. The Cougars ran off a 26-game winning streak, capturing the #1 ranking in the process, capped by a 94–81 victory over #2 Louisville to advance to the National Championship Game. Midwest Houston 60, Maryland 50 Houston 70, Memphis 63 Houston 89, Villanova 71 Final Four Houston 94, Louisville 81 NC State led at halftime by a score of 33–25. Houston was hampered by foul trouble that plagued star Clyde Drexler, who picked up four first half fouls. In the second half, the Cougars came out with a second wind and established control of the game taking a seven-point lead. Since the game was played in Albuquerque, players had to deal with the city's mile-high altitude; the Cougars' star center, Akeem Olajuwon, had problems adjusting to the environment and tired needing to check out of the game multiple times so he could put on an oxygen mask and recover.

With Olajuwon on the bench, Houston head coach Guy Lewis decided that in order to protect the lead and Olajuwon's health at the same time, the Cougars slowed the game down. This enabled the Wolfpack to return to their standby strategy of extending the game. Houston's free throw shooting was suspect entering the game, which worked in NC State's favor as they were able to rally back and the score at 52 in the final two minutes. On what would be the last Houston possession, Valvano called for his players to back off and let freshman guard Alvin Franklin bring the ball up the court, while fouling him whenever he had the ball on the belief that the inexperienced Franklin could not withstand the pressure of going to the line with a championship at stake. Franklin missed and the Wolfpack grabbed the rebound. Valvano called timeout with 44 seconds left and drew up a play for senior guard Dereck Whittenburg that called for the team to pass him the ball with ten seconds left on the clock so he could take the final shot.

Houston needed a defensive stop. Lewis decided to move from the man-to-man defense his team had been running the whole game to a half court zone trap defense; the Wolfpack, who were not expecting the defensive adjustment, were forced to deviate and began passing the ball around just to keep the Cougars from stealing it. Houston nearly got the turnover it was looking for when Whittenburg made an errant pass to Gannon that Drexler nearly came away with before the sophomore regained control of the ball; the ball wound up in the hands of guard Sidney Lowe, who gave it to forward and fellow senior Thurl Bailey in the corner. Trying to keep the ball moving, as he had been double teamed as soon as he received the pass, Bailey looked back toward Whittenburg, thirty feet away from the hoop near midcourt. Bailey threw what Whittenburg would call a "poor fundamental" overhanded pass which Houston's Benny Anders, guarding Whittenburg on the play, was in position to steal. At this point, Whittenburg hearkened back to his high school days with Morgan Wootten at DeMatha Catholic High School, where he was taught to always catch the basketball with both hands.

If Whittenburg had not attempted to do so in this case, Anders may have gotten the steal and a game-winning breakaway layup. In college basketball at the time, the game clock continued to run after a made field goal, the Wolfpack would not have had time to inbound the ball; as it was, Anders knocked the ball out of Whi

Formula 3000

Formula 3000 was a type of open wheel, single seater formula racing, occupying the tier below Formula One and above Formula Three. It was so named; the most prestigious F3000 series, International Formula 3000, was introduced by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile in 1985 to replace Formula Two, was itself replaced by the GP2 Series in 2005. While the International series is synonymous with F3000, other series racing to F3000 specification have existed. A small British Formula 3000 series ran for several years in the late 1980s and early 1990s using year-old cars. Founded in 1989 as the British Formula 3000 Championship, the series was renamed the British Formula Two Championship in 1992, but grids diminished and it was ended after the 1994 season, it was restarted in 1996 and cancelled once more the following year, after one race had been held with only three cars. Two other attempts at restarting F3000 racing in the UK failed. An Italian series evolved into a second-level one, Euro Formula 3000, running the previous generation of spec Lolas.

An Italian national series started in 2005 with the arrival of the GP2 Series, but has now been merged with Euroseries 3000, running both B02/50 and B99/50 cars. As of 2010, it is renamed Auto GP, using old A1 Grand Prix cars and engines in place of F3000 regulations; the American Racing Series, a predecessor of Indy Lights, ran with March F3000 chassis and Buick V6 engines, before turning to Lolas some years later. Japan persisted with Formula Two rules for a couple of years after the demise of F2 in Europe, but adopted F3000 rules in 1987. Unlike European F3000, the Japanese Championship featured a lot of competition between tyre companies, tended to feature paid drivers in cars tending to be more developed and tested than those in the European series; the Mugen engine dominated this series, was competitive in European F3000. Japanese F3000 was renamed Formula Nippon in 1996, split off from European racing in 2009 with the new Swift chassis. In Australia Formula 4000 continued to use old F3000 chassis until 2006, as had its predecessors Formula Brabham and Formula Holden

Like the Clouds, Like the Wind

Like the Clouds, Like the Wind is an anime television film in Japan produced by Studio Pierrot for NTV and based on the novel by Ken'ichi Sakemi. It is incorrectly thought to be produced by Studio Ghibli due to the character designs by Katsuya Kondō due to an error in its first fan translation that attributed the screenplay to Hayao Miyazaki instead of Akira Miyazaki, the higher-than-average quality of the animation for a TV movie. However, Studio Ghibli had no involvement in the film. Ginga is a simple—yet energetic—country girl, living with her father far from the capital city of the empire in 17th century China; when she learns of an opportunity to become a concubine of the young new Emperor, with the possibility of getting a regular food supply in the bargain, Ginga convinces her father to let her go. Once there, she meets all of the other potential head wives, each of whom have various reasons for being there. All of them must learn to read and write, learn the history of their country, learn the proper mannerisms for being in the royal court.

Ginga's enthusiasm tends to get her in trouble more than not, but it works to her advantage when they learn that the former emperor's head wife, not the mother of the current emperor, is plotting treachery against the new emperor, that a rebellion is headed toward the capital. The novel, Inner Palace Harem Story, won the first Japan Fantasy Novel Award in 1989, received sponsorship to become a film from Mitsui Real Estate; the novel has been released in both bunkobon format. Hardcover, ISBN 4-10-375101-0, March 5, 1989, ¥1200 Bunkobon, ISBN 4-10-128111-4, April 25, 1993, ¥480 Kumo Kaze, as it is sometimes called, had its premier broadcast on March 21, 1990 during the vernal equinox national holiday, was shown in an unprecedented commercial-free presentation; the movie was released on Region 2 DVD in 2002. The film is licensed in North America by Discotek Media who subsequently released it on DVD and Blu-ray.
