Governor of Victoria

The Governor of Victoria is the representative in the Australian state of Victoria of its monarch, Elizabeth II, Queen of Australia and is one of the Governors of the Australian states. The governor performs the same constitutional and ceremonial functions at the state level as does the Governor-General of Australia at the federal level; the governor's office and official residence is Government House next to the Royal Botanic Gardens and surrounded by Kings Domain in Melbourne. The Governor of Victoria is appointed by the Queen of Australia on the advice of the Premier of Victoria; the current Governor of Victoria is Victoria's first female governor. In accordance with the conventions of the Westminster system of parliamentary government, the governor nearly always acts on the advice of the head of the elected government, the Premier of Victoria; the governor retains the reserve powers of the Crown, has the right to dismiss the premier. The Governor of Victoria is appointed by the Queen of Australia, on the advice of the Premier of Victoria, to act as her representative as head of state in Victoria.

The Governor acts "at the Queen's pleasure", meaning that the term of the Governor can be terminated at any time by the Queen acting upon the advice of the premier. Since the Australia Acts of 1986, it is the governor, not the queen, who exercises all the powers of the head of state, the governor is not subject to the direction or supervision of the monarch, but acts upon the advice of the premier. Upon appointment, he or she becomes a viceroy; the governor's main responsibilities fall into three categories – constitutional and community engagement. The Personal Standard of the Governor of Victoria is the same design as the State Flag of Victoria, but with the blue background replaced by gold, red stars depicting the Southern Cross. Above the Southern Cross is the Royal Crown; the current standard has been in place since 1984. The standard used by Victorian governors after 1870 had been the Union Jack with the Badge of the State of Victoria emblazoned in the centre. Between 1903 and 1953, the Tudor Crown was used on the State Flag and Governor's Standard, this was changed to the present crown in 1954.

The Governor's Standard is flown on vehicles conveying the governor. The Standard is lowered over Government House. There is a lieutenant-governor and an administrator; the Chief Justice of Victoria is ex officio the Administrator, unless he or she is the lieutenant-governor, in which case, the next most senior judge is the administrator. The lieutenant-governor takes on the responsibilities of the governor when that post is vacant or when the governor is out of the state or unable to act; the administrator takes on those duties if both the governor and lieutenant-governor are not able to act for the above reasons. See Governors of the Australian states for a description and history of the office of governor; as with the other states, until the 1986 Australia Acts, the office of Governor of Victoria was an appointment of the British Foreign Office although local advice was considered and sometimes accepted. Until the appointment of Victorian-born Sir Henry Winneke in 1974, the Governors of Victoria were British.

Since governors have been Australian although several were born overseas, namely Dr Davis McCaughey, born in Ireland, came to Australia for work. Prior to the separation of the colony of Victoria from New South Wales in 1851, the area was called the Port Phillip District of New South Wales; the Governor of New South Wales appointed superintendents of the District. In 1839 Charles La Trobe was appointed superintendent. La Trobe became Lieutenant-Governor of Victoria on separation on 1 July 1851. Between 1850 and 1861, the Governor of New South Wales was titled Governor-General of New South Wales, in an attempt to form a federal structure; until Victoria obtained responsible government in 1855, the Governor-General of New South Wales appointed lieutenant-governors to Victoria. On Victoria obtaining responsible government in May 1855, the title of the incumbent lieutenant-governor, Captain Sir Charles Hotham, became governor; as of July 2015, four former governors are alive. The most recent governor to die was Davis McCaughey, on 25 March 2005.

The most serving governor to die was Richard McGarvie, on 24 May 2003. There is a lieutenant-governor and an administrator; the lieutenant-governor takes on the responsibilities of the governor when that post is vacant or when the governor is out of the state or unable to act. The lieutenant-governor is appointed by the governor on the advice of the Premier of Victoria. Appointment as lieutenant-governor does not of itself confers any functions. If there is no governor or if the governor is unavailable to act for a substantial period, the lieutenant-governor assumes office as administrator and exercises all the powers and functions of the governor. If expecting to be unavailable for a short period only, the governor with the consent of the premier commissions the lieutenant-governor to act as deputy for the governor, performing some or all of the powers and functions of the governor; the Chief Justice of Victoria is ex officio the administrator, unless he or she is the lieutenant-governor, in which case, the next most senior judge is the administrator.

The administrator takes on the governor’s duties if both the governor and lieutenant-governor are not able to act for the above reasons. The current lieutenant-governor is Ken L


Spider-Geddon is a 2018 comic book limited series and crossover storyline published by Marvel Comics featuring Spider-Man and his supporting cast. In this sequel to Spider-Verse, the Inheritors have found a way out of the decimated world they were imprisoned on and are now determined to take their revenge on the Spider-Army and feed on them once again; the story was first announced with blank teaser posters, with the tagline "Spider-Geddon is nigh". It was revealed that the story would feature several alternate versions of Spider-Man and his related characters, like the previous crossover event, Spider-Verse; the creative team, writer Christos Gage and artist Jorge Molina, was announced on June 29 in a press release. Editor Nick Lowe explained that "Spider-Verse took the multitudes of Spider-Characters and put them all on the same stage and we’ve been playing with it since. Spider-Geddon straps blows it to smithereens; the most dangerous spider-villain Morlun, his family of Inheritors were trapped in the perfect prison at the end of Spider-Verse.

But like in any super hero story, there’s always a way out and you won’t believe how these Spider-Eaters get out. But they’re out and they want revenge."Gage had worked for Dan Slott in the Spider-Verse comic, became the lead writer because Slott was busy writing the Tony Stark: Iron Man and Fantastic Four comic books. The publishers clarified in the New York Comic Con that the lead character would be Miles Morales, not Peter Parker; the event began with a 5-issue Edge of Spider-Geddon miniseries, featuring side stories of alternate versions of Spider-Man. Spider-Geddon #0 introduced the character from the Spider-Man 2018 video game into comics, set up the plot for the game's sequel. Both the video game and the comic are written by Gage, who said that "Since I have been writing for the video game for the past three years, it seemed like a perfect time to bring that Pete into the mix"; the first illustrated teaser poster featured a black silhouette of a Spider-Man character, revealed to be the one from the game in a full version of the poster.

Superior Octopus #1 introduced the main theme, the main Spider-Geddon started to be published after it. One of the tie-in comics is a third volume of the Spider-Gwen comic book, named Spider-Gwen: Ghost-Spider, it is pictured by artist Rosi Kampe. Superior Octopus establishes himself as a local hero of San Francisco along with Spider Man India, he has invented a machine that makes clones of himself, allowing his consciousness to jump to one of those in case of death.

Morlun emerges from one of the machines, as well as Verna and Jennix, kill Spider-Man Noir and Spider-UK. Morlun departs to target Peter Parker; as the Inheritors continue to emerge, the spiders suggest that Octavius trigger the base's self-destruct, with Spider-Gwen sacrificing herself to trap the Inheritors in the base as the others retreat.

With the Inheritors now restricted to the bodies they have at the moment and Spider-Punk suggest killing the Inheritors while Miles, Spider-Woman and Spider-Ham vow to adhere to their old philosophies. Octavius returns to the Superior Spider-Man costume, both groups start to recruit allies from alternate dimensions. Verna takes a detour in her mission. Spider-Gwen finds herself on Earth-3109. Arriving on Earth-51778, Superior Spider-Man and Spider-Man of Earth-1048 find Takuya Yamashiro and his robot Leopardon fighting a giant monster. Superior Spider-Man warns him of the Inheritors.

Octavia has found that Ben Reilly has followed them as he is familiar with New U Technology's cloning technology. Superior Spider-Man gets a transmission from Miles' group stating that they are heading to New U Technologies. At New U Technologies, Solus' body is restored as Daemos, Brix and Jennix await Verna's return with the crystal; as Jennix tries to speed up the construction of the body banks, Spider-Ham reports back to the rest of his group. Before Miles can detonate the support beams, they are attacked by Brix and Daemos with the hand detonator destroyed; as Bora works to drain the lifeforce from Miles, SP//dr is advised by Miles to activate the detonators in her suit. SP//dr reluctantly does so until Superior Spider-Man's group arrives where a retreat is issued after Superior Spider-Man gets analysis on Solus' body bank. During the retreat, Superior Spider-Man learns that Jennix is having a hard time with New U Technologies' cloning technology.

Thomas W. Murphy (anthropologist)

Thomas W. Murphy is an American anthropologist and writer, his work has focused on environmental issues and various Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints-related topics. Murphy is a member of the LDS Church, he earned a Ph. D. in anthropology from the University of Washington in 2003. As of 2013, he teaches in the Department of Anthropology at Edmonds Community College in Washington state, he founded the Learn and Serve Environmental Anthropology Field School in 2006. The LEAF School offers field-based service-learning courses in human ecology and archaeology and specializes in the application of traditional ecological knowledge to sustainability projects; the Washington Association of Conservation Districts selected Murphy as its Conservation Educator of the Year in 2011. The Puget Sound Regional Council selected the Japanese Gulch Fish Passage Project in 2012 for a Vision 2040 Award, highlighting the anthropology and archaeology field training led by Murphy, his academic publications focus on wildlife corridors, social marketing, environmental education, Mormon representations of Native Americans.

In 1997, he located an isolated LDS faction in Mexico of the Third Convention group, which scholars believed to have died out decades earlier. Murphy's research been published in the Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion. Murphy drew attention in the media and from the leadership of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints after the publication of his essay, "Lamanite Genesis and Genetics" in the 2002 book American Apocrypha; this essay discusses the genetic evidence for the geographic origin and lineage of Native American groups. It relies on evidence regarding mitochondrial DNA, inherited directly from the mother. Murphy posited that DNA evidence suggests that Native Americans are descendants of individuals from northeastern Siberia—corroborating conclusions that anthropologists have long held, he notes the 99.6 percent absence of genetic heritage outside of known indigenous Native American haplogroups. In his essay, Murphy writes that DNA and other research contradicts numerous LDS doctrinal claims, such as that Native Americans are descended from Middle Eastern people who immigrated to the Americas circa 600 BC: From a scientific perspective, the BoMor's origin is best situated in early 19th century America, not ancient America.

There were no Lamanites prior to c. 1828 and dark skin is not a physical trait of God's malediction. Native Americans do not need to accept the BoMor to know their own history; the BoMor emerged from Joseph Smith's own struggles with his God. Mormons need to look inward for spiritual validation and cease efforts to remake Native Americans in their own image. Murphy concluded that "DNA research lends no support to traditional Mormon beliefs about the origins of Native Americans" and he has likened the Book of Mormon to inspirational fiction. Murphy has reaffirmed this point several times since the initial publication of his essay in interviews and in videos produced by Living Hope Ministries, a Utah-based evangelical Christian ministry that produces literature and films that question and criticize Mormonism. In a review in 2006, the FARMS Institute responded to Murphy's claims. Murphy's review of genetic research was expanded upon by molecular biologist Simon Southerton, a former Mormon bishop, with his study Losing a Lost Tribe: Native Americans DNA, the Mormon Church, Signature Books, 2004, which gives a more complete accounting of the current status of Polynesians and Native Americans in context with national studies, Mormon scholars and concessions by geneticists from BYU.

Other researchers such as Scott Woodward are critical of Southerton's work. In response to the publication of "Lamanite Genesis and Genetics", Murphy's LDS stake president asked him to either recant his position regarding DNA evidence and the Book of Mormon or resign his membership in the LDS Church. Murphy declined both suggestions, so Latimer scheduled a disciplinary council for December 8, 2002; such a council might have resulted in Murphy's excommunication from the church. Murphy's situation received widespread media attention and generated protest actions from some Mormon intellectual groups. On December 7, 2002, less than 24 hours before the scheduled meeting time, Latimer indefinitely postponed Murphy's disciplinary council. On February 23, 2003, Latimer informed Murphy that all disciplinary action was placed on permanent hold. In a note Murphy sent to several supporters for wide public distribution, Murphy expressed hope that other scholars in similar positions might benefit from Latimer's decision: We hope that other stake presidents will follow this most recent example of President Latimer and refrain from using the threat of excommunication as tool for disciplining scholars.
