He now works as a television commentator for ITV Sport and BT Sport, he played as a midfielder for Tottenham Hotspur, Monaco and Swindon Town and at international level for England. In 2007, he was inducted into the National Football Museum Hall of Fame, which cited him as one of the most gifted and creative English footballers of his generation, exhibiting "sublime balance and close control, unrivalled passing and vision and extraordinary shooting ability, both from open play and set pieces", he has been manager of Swindon Town, Southampton, Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Soon after, the family moved to Essex, he attended Burnt Mill School in Harlow. He has been supporting Tottenham Hotspur since he was eight, his favourite player was Martin Chivers.

He first came to the attention of Spurs when Martin Chivers and Ray Evans went to present prizes at a local school cup final and noticed the potential of the 11-year-old schoolboy, on Chivers' recommendation he was invited to train with the club at Tottenham's practice ground in Cheshunt. Hoddle joined the club as a junior when he was 12, signed for the club as an apprentice on 17 April 1974, he overcame knee problems in his early teens and collected eight England Youth caps, first of these on 18 March 1975 against Spain. He made his Spurs first-team debut as a 17-year-old substitute for Cyril Knowles against Norwich City on 30 August 1975, a game that ended 2–2. Hoddle was forced to wait until 21 February 1976 to start a First Division match and announced his arrival with the winning goal, a spectacular strike past Stoke City and England goalkeeper Peter Shilton, he flourished under the management of Keith Burkinshaw and despite the club's relegation to the Second Division in 1976–77 after 27 seasons of First Division football, a Hoddle-inspired Spurs side won promotion to the top flight at the first attempt.

As Tottenham's transitional phase continued, Hoddle's international career began on 15 December 1976 in an Under-21 friendly fixture against Wales. He would collect another eleven caps at that level, play twice for the England'B' team prior to scoring on his full international debut against Bulgaria on 22 November 1979; the 1979–80 campaign heralded the emergence of Hoddle as a top-class player.

In October 1983, he helped Spurs win 6–2 on aggregate against a Feyenoord Rotterdam side containing Johan Cruyff. Cruyff was dismissive of Hoddle before their first match, but after Hoddle's performance, Cruyff swapped shirt with Hoddle as a sign of respect.

Fort Willem I, Ambarawa

Fort Willem I, known in Indonesian/Javanese as Benteng Pendem Ambarawa, is a 19th-century Dutch fortress in Ambarawa, Central Java, Indonesia. During the Diponegoro War, Colonel Hoorn, Commander of the 2nd Division, assigned to the crossroads at Bawen, instructed the construction of a logistical supply point, as well several military barracks, to give immediate supply and forces for the war, as Bawen is a vital junction connecting the cities of Semarang, Yogyakarta and Surakarta; as a result, several sheds, made out of bamboo, were built at this strategic point during the war. After the war, during the reign of Willem II, a fort was constructed in Ambarawa between 1834-1853. In 1840, Ambarawa had become a strategic military outpost, serving as a choke point between Semarang and Surakarta; the Dutch had established several military defense points along this route. Their purpose was to establish a relationship with the Sultanate of Mataram and to prevent native troop movements. From 1853 to 1927 KNIL military barracks were set up in the fort.

The private Dutch East Indies Railway Company received concession in 1862 to build a rail track connecting Semarang, Surakarta and Yogyakarta with a branch toward Fort Willem I. Construction started in 1863 and was completed in 1873. An earthquake occurring on July 16, 1865 damaged some buildings inside the fort. In 1927, Fort Willem I changed its function from a juvenile penitentiary into an adult and political prison. During the period of Japanese occupation, Fort Willem I was converted into an internment camp. After the Indonesian declaration of independence, from October 14, 1945 to November 23, 1945, parts of the fort were used as a military base by the Tentara Keamanan Rakjat, a predecessor of the Indonesian National Army. During which time, around 3,500 Dutch civilians were interned by Indonesian freedom fighters inside the Fort Willem I. In 1950, parts of the fort were converted into an adult penitentiary. In 1985, it was repurposed yet again as a juvenile penitentiary facility. Fort Willem I is situated in the middle of a rice field.

The main building is a pentagonal fort, sized around 178 x 178 meter. Small storage buildings are located around 94 meter away from the fort at each cardinal points. Unlike earlier 18th-century fort designs, the 19th-century Willem I Fort were designed for a defensive and logistical purpose; as such, the fort contains no bastions. Instead, there are many windows in the rampart, the bastions are detached from the fort

Sanford B. Dole

Sanford Ballard Dole was a lawyer and jurist in the Hawaiian Islands as a kingdom, protectorate and territory. A descendant of the American missionary community to Hawaii, Dole advocated the westernization of Hawaiian government and culture. After the overthrow of the monarchy, he served as the President of the Republic of Hawaii until his government secured Hawaii's annexation by the United States. Dole was born April 23, 1844 in Honolulu to Protestant Christian missionaries from Maine in the United States, his father was Daniel Dole, principal at Punahou School, his mother was Emily Hoyt Ballard. His mother died from complications within a few days of his birth. Dole was named after his uncle, Sandford K. Ballard, a classmate of his father's at Bowdoin College who died in 1841, he was nursed by a native Hawaiian, his father married Charlotte Close Knapp in 1846. In 1855 the family moved to Kōloa on the island of Kauaʻi. Dole attended Punahou school for one year and Williams College in 1866–1867.

He worked in a law office in Boston for another year, although he never attended law school, he received an honorary LL. D. degree from Williams in 1897. In 1873 he married Anna Prentice Cate. In December 1880 he was commissioned as a Notary Public in Honolulu. Dole won the 1884 and 1886 elections to the legislature of the Hawaiian Kingdom as a representative from Kauaʻi. In June 1887 local businessmen, sugar planters, politicians backed by the Honolulu Rifles forced the dismissal of the cabinet of controversial Walter M. Gibson and forced the adoption of the 1887 Constitution of the Kingdom of Hawaii; the new documents limited voting rights to only the literate males of the following populations: Hawaiian and American descent, while imposing income and wealth requirements to be eligible to vote for the House of Nobles, thus consolidating power among only the elite residents of the island. In addition, the new Constitution minimized the power of the Monarch in favor of more influential governance by the cabinet.

Dole and other lawyers of American descent drafted this document, which became known as the "Bayonet Constitution". King Kalākaua appointed Dole a justice of the Supreme Court of the Kingdom of Hawaii on December 28, 1887, to a commission to revise judiciary laws on January 24, 1888. After Kalākaua's death, his sister Queen Liliʻuokalani appointed him to her Privy Council on August 31, 1891; the monarchy ended on January 17, 1893, after the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii organized by many of the same actors involved in the 1887 revolt. Although Dole declined to be part of the Committee of Safety, he helped draft their declaration. Dole was named president of the Provisional Government of Hawaii, formed after the coup and was recognized within 48 hours by all nations with diplomatic ties to the Kingdom of Hawaii, including the United Kingdom, his cabinet included James A. King as minister of the interior, William Owen Smith as attorney general, banker Peter Cushman Jones as minister of finance.

Dole acted as Minister of Foreign Affairs himself until February 15, 1894. Samuel Mills Damon would serve as Minister of Finance. With Grover Cleveland's election as President of the United States, the Provisional Government's hopes of annexation were derailed for a time. Indeed, Cleveland tried to directly help reinstate the monarchy, after an investigation led by James Henderson Blount; the Blount Report of July 17, 1893, commissioned by President Cleveland, concluded that the Committee of Safety conspired with U. S. ambassador John L. Stevens to land the United States Marine Corps, to forcibly remove Queen Liliʻuokalani from power, declare a Provisional Government of Hawaii consisting of members from the Committee of Safety. On November 16, 1893, Albert Willis presented the Queen with Cleveland's request that she grant amnesty to the revolutionists in return for being restored to the throne; this request she flatly refused, stating that the revolutionists should be punished and should have their lands confiscated.

According to Willis, she recommended. Though she denied having recommended any such thing, her attitude lost her the goodwill of the Cleveland administration, which thereupon recognized the Republic of Hawaii on July 4, 1894; the Morgan Report of February 26, 1894 concluded that the overthrow was locally based, that it had its origins in monarchical corruption, that American troops had not tried to bring about the monarchy's collapse: rather, that the troops had acted to protect American property and citizens. Not long afterward, the Provisional Government held a constitutional convention. On July 4, 1894, this convention proclaimed the formal establishment of the Republic of Hawaii. Lorrin A. Thurston declined the presidency of the republic, Dole was chosen to lead the government instead. Dole would serve as the first and only president from 1894 to 1898. Dole in turn appointed Thurston to lead the lobbying effort in Washington, D. C. to secure Hawaiʻi's annexation by the United States. Dole's government secured diplomatic recognition from every nation that had recognized the Kingdom of Hawaii, weathered several attempts to restore the monarchy, including a January 1895 counter-rebellion led by Robert William Wilcox.

After being defeated and the other conspirators were captured and sentenced to death, but had their sentences reduced or commuted by Dole. Queen Liliʻuokalani abdicated and, under duress, swore allegiance to the Republic of Hawaii, declaring, "I hereby do and unequivocally admit and declare that the Government of the Republic of Hawaii is t
