Timrå IK

Timrå IK is a Swedish ice hockey team from Timrå. After failing the 2019 SHL qualifiers, Timrå has been relegated for play in the second-tier league, HockeyAllsvenskan, in the 2019–20 season. Previous seasons in the top Swedish division include 1956–57 to 1975–76, 1977–78, 1981–82, 2000–01 to 2012–13; the club origins from Wifstavarfs GIF, founded in 1921, Wifstavarvs IK, founded in 1928, Östrands IF, founded in 1931. Both clubs started playing ice hockey in 1938 and in the summer of 1942 they merged into Wifsta/Östrands IF, more called W/Ö. W/Ö made its first Swedish Championship appearance in 1943; the championships were played independently from the national league at the time. Five seasons 1948–49 the team was accepted for play in the national league system in Sweden. Starting in third league, Wifsta/Östrands IF won nine out of ten games and directly advanced to second league or Division II Norra. In the spring of 1956, having spent seven seasons facing teams like Brynäs IF, Mora IK and Leksands IF, W/Ö qualified for the top national league on March 10, 1956 as the top league, Division I, nicknamed Allsvenskan by many, was expanded from 6+6 to 8+8 teams, a North and South Division.

In 1963, the local club Fagerviks GF was absorbed and W/Ö was renamed Wifsta/Östrand–Fagerviks IF or WÖF. Starting with the 1958–59 season, W/Ö was playing its home games on an artificial ice rink; some years an ice arena was built, WÖF played its first indoor season 1965–66 under the roof of what is now NHK Arena. Just one year the lengthy name Wifsta/Östrand–Fagerviks IF was replaced by Timrå IK as of 1966–67. Timrå IK continued to play successful hockey and stayed in the top league in Sweden until Elitserien was formed in 1975. Having finished last of the 10 teams, the club received their first relegation and was demoted after 20 years in the top league. Back in second league for the 1976–77 season, Timrå stood undefeated in all 22 games and qualified for promotion again. However, it did not last. Two one-year visits in Elitserien 1977–78 and 1981–82 ended in low results and relegation. Many winters still in second league, an effort to regain the status of old times was made. On May 22, 1990, the collaboration Sundsvall/Timrå Hockey was formed with the nearby club IF Sundsvall Hockey.

Still no success, just a few years after, the joint Main/Farm team relationship was ended. Some confusion followed when the former Timrå club was named ST Hockey during the 1994–95 season, but is since April 6, 1995 known as Timrå IK yet again. After qualifying for the Kvalserien in 2000, the Red Eagles earned promotion to Elitserien on April 14, 2000, returned to Elitserien after 18 years of absence. Three years March 1, 2003, Timrå IK played the Swedish Championship playoffs for the first time since 1974. In the 2007–08 season Timrå IK moved up Anton Lander and Magnus Pääjärvi-Svensson from the junior teams. Despite both being only 16 years old at the time, their game was a success, they were both offered, signed, professional hockey contracts with the club. In the 2012–13 season, Timrå finished eleventh in the regular season and therefore had to play in the 2013 Kvalserien to stay in the top-tier league, but the team finished outside the top two spots and was relegated to the second-tier league HockeyAllsvenskan for the first time since the 1999–2000 season.

After playing five seasons in HockeyAllsvenskan, Timrå were able to earn a promotion to the SHL following the conclusion of the 2017–18 HockeyAllsvenskan season. Some of the key players during the season and the subsequent promotion playoffs were Jonathan Dahlén, Vilmos Galló, Anton Wedin and goaltender Henrik Haukeland. 1 Victor Brattstrom 89 Niklas Svedberg 5 Lennart "Lill-Strimma" Svedberg, F, 1959–1962, D, 1969–1972† 20 Henrik Zetterberg, C, 1997–2002, 2004–05 Note: GP = Games played, W = Wins, L = Losses, T = Ties, Pt = Point, GF = Goals for, GA = Goals against, WIK = Wifstavarvs IK, ÖIF = Östrands IF Note: GP = Games played, W = Wins, L = Losses, T = Ties, Pt = Point, GF = Goals for, GA = Goals against Note: GP = Games played, W = Wins, L = Losses, T = Ties, Pt = Points, GF = Goals for, GA = Goals against Note: GP = Games played, W = Wins, L = Losses, T = Ties, BP = Bonus points, Pts = Points, GF = Goals for, GA = Goals against Note: GP = Games played, W = Wins, L = Losses, T = Ties, OTW = Overtime or Shootout wins, Pt = Point, GF = Goals for, GA = Goals against, PIM = Penalties in minutes Anders Huss Timo Peltomaa & Marcus Karlsson Håkan Åhlund Markus Åkerblom Robert Carlsson Sanny Lindström Pär Styf Elias Granath Per Hallin Andreas Molinder Hampus Larsson Stig Andersson Orvar Kempe Sven Lindström Verner Persson & Göte Viklund Roine Björkstrand Eje Lindström Jan-Erik Nilsson Håkan Nygren Olle Åhman Björn Pettersson & Christer Sehlstedt Håkan Pettersson & Ulf Backlund Håkan Pettersson & Christer Sehlstedt Rolf Norrbom Steven Brown Lage Edin Ulf Weinstock & Peter Crone Ulf Weinstock & Sune Bergman Ulf Weinstock & Lars-Eje Lindström Juhani Tamminen & Magnus Billman Ulf Thors & Magnus Billman Peo Larsson Lars Molin Kent Johansson Charles Berglund Per-Erik Johnsson Kent Norberg Anders Karlsson Roger Forsberg Fredrik

Driller (oil)

The Driller is a team leader in charge during the process of well drilling. The term is used in the context of an oil well drilling rig. Driller comes after the Toolpusher in the Rig crew hierarchy. Toolpusher takes the operation orders from the Company-man. Toolpusher supervises these order to the driller and the rest of the drilling crew and gets the job done. While Toolpusher and the drilling crew belong to the Drilling contractor company, Company-man is the employee of the operator company; the driller is in charge of the crew, running the rig itself. Most of the time, his or her job is to monitor the rig's activity, while the automatic driller runs the breaks and drills the hole; the driller is responsible for interpreting the signals the well gives regarding gas and fluids with high pressure. In an emergency he is responsible for taking the correct counter measures to stop an uncontrolled well control situation from emerging; the driller will watch for gas levels coming out of the hole, how much drilling mud is going in, other information.

While tripping, the driller will work the rig. While Company-man takes all the decision on the rig, but at times of emergency the driller will be the one in charge of real time decisions. According to and, the hierarchy on an oil platform correspond to the timescale of which the sections operate; the automatic drilling equipment work on the timescale of seconds and both reports to and gets its orders from the driller, who operates on a timescale of several seconds to hours. The person will report and gets his or her orders from those planning the current drilling operation, on a timescale of days and weeks; the chain extends to those who are in charge of managing the whole oil field, on a timescale of decades

Sins of My Father (film)

Sins of My Father is a 2009 Argentine-Colombian documentary film directed by Nicolas Entel. It tells the story of the notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar from the inside perspective of his son, now living in Argentina under the name Sebastián Marroquín. In 1993, after Pablo Escobar is gunned down by the police, his 16-year-old son Juan Pablo flees to Argentina together with his mother and sister. To avoid being identified and in fear of his life he changes his name to Sebastián Marroquín. "My life was worth $4 million... That’s the price they put on my head", he said. After a decade of silence, Marroquín and his mother publicly speak about the life of their family member for the first time. In an attempt to end the cycle of violence and to ask for forgiveness Marroquín travels to Colombia to meet the sons of two of his father's most prominent murder victims: presidential candidate Luis Carlos Galán and Minister of Justice Rodrigo Lara Bonilla, as well as the son of the former Colombian president César Gaviria.

In connection to telling the story of Pablo Escobar, the film explores the Colombia's recent violent history as a "narco-state" and the country's illegal drug trade. In 2005, after declining multiple filmmakers, Marroquín met Entel, who suggested making a documentary focused on the sons of the two famous men Escobar ordered killed in addition to Marroquín's inside perspective. Questioned about the usefulness of Marroquín's apologizing to the sons of his father's victims for crimes he himself did not commit, Entel said the point was to promote reconciliation, " has the value of saying,'It stops here. We are not going to inherit our parents' hatred.'"Marroquín agreed to participate in the project on two conditions: that "Pablo Escobar" was not included in the title and that his sister was not shown. The film includes personal never-seen-before material of the Escobar family. Entel said of Marroquin: "It was hard to get Sebastian to agree, it took me more than six months to get him on-board. He felt that he was risking his life by breaking his silence and letting the world know where he was and that his name was Sebastian Marroquin.

But, I think he understood that I wasn't just trying to glamourize his father's image but I was trying to do something different, telling things from the point of view of his generation. I think that's what helped him to take this chance." Fernanda Solórzano talked about the movie in the cultural magazine Letras libres, she said: "Nicolás Entel documentary follow the steps of Sebastián Marroquín, son of Pablo Escobar, instead of humanizing the capo, the film draws his terrifying duality and his son's work to mantain his sanity in the face of his legacy". <https://www.letraslibres.com/espana-mexico/cinetv/cine-aparte-pecados-mi-padre/> Official website Sins of My Father on IMDb
