Gulf of Boothia

The Gulf of Boothia is a body of water in Nunavut, Canada. Administratively it is divided between the Kitikmeot Region on the west and the Qikiqtaaluk Region on the east, it merges north into Prince Regent Inlet, the two forming a single bay with different names for its parts. It is surrounded by, Baffin Island and Hecla Strait, the Melville Peninsula, the Canadian mainland, the Boothia Peninsula and Bellot Strait if the Gulf can be said to extend that far north; the south end is Committee Bay, northwest of which are the Simpson Pelly Bay. In addition to its connection to Prince Regent Inlet one can use an icebreaker to go east through the Fury and Hecla Strait, or, with luck, pass the Bellot Strait westward. In 1822, it was seen by some of William Edward Parry's men, who went on foot along the ice-choked Fury and Hecla Strait. In 1829, it was entered by John Ross, frozen in for four years and named it for his patron Sir Felix Booth, its south end was explored by John Rae in 1846–1847, who reached it overland from the south

Carlos Osoro Sierra

Carlos Osoro Sierra is a Spanish Roman Catholic prelate who has served as Archbishop of Madrid since 2014 and been a cardinal since 2016. Osoro was born in Castañeda in northern Spain on in 1945, he studied at the Escuela Normal and taught in Santander where its bishop Juan Antonio de Val Gallo ordained him in 1973. He was the vicar general for Santander from 1976 until 1994, he received his episcopal consecration in 1997. Osoro became the Archbishop of Oviedo in 2002 and Archbishop of Valencia in 2009. Pope Francis named him as the Archbishop of Madrid in August 2014. Osoro Sierra is considered to be an orthodox prelate known for his pastoral sensitivities. Pope Francis announced that he would elevate Osoro Sierra to the rank of cardinal on 19 November 2016, where he was made Cardinal-Priest of Santa Maria in Trastevere. Francis made him a member of the Congregation for Catholic Education on 23 December 2017. Pope Francis has referred to Osoro Sierra as "Don Carlos the pilgrim", alluding to the cardinal's frequent walks around his archdiocese during which he mingles with the people to get to know them better.

He has made religious vocations one of his chief priorities and in Valencia the number of seminarians grew from 51 in 2012 to 61 in 2013 due to his efforts. Upon his arrival in Madrid he planned to launch a diocesan plan for evangelization in order to reach out to those cut off from the Church and to renew vigor in the Christian faith, he invites adolescents to join him at the start of each month for a vigil in which to dialogue with them to understand their needs and concerns and he celebrates Mass in prisons. Osoro Sierra visited cloistered convents when he arrived in Madrid. Osoro Sierra was once asked whether he would define himself as a conservative prelate, but he insisted that he was "a man of the Church" and not one of labels which seek to distract the Church's work. Despite some news reports in April 2016 that Osoro had prohibited Cardinal Gerhard Müller from discussing his book at a Madrid college because Osoro deemed it "against the pope", Osoro welcomed Müller to a discussion of the book on 3 May at the Universidad Francisco de Vitoria, a Roman Catholic university in Madrid.

Pope Francis named him a member of the Congregation for Oriental Churches on 6 August 2019. "Osoro Sierra Card. Carlos". Holy See Press Office. Archived from the original on 20 November 2016.
