Harry H. Short was a minor league baseball player and manager, he played on two Texas League championship Austin Senators teams, led the league in stolen bases in 1907 with 78. Short grew up in Kansas. Harry Short played shortstop on the college team. After subsequently playing on semi-professional teams in Concordia, where he became known for his strong fielding and speed, he entered minor league baseball in 1904 with a team in New Bern, North Carolina. In 1905 he played for the Minneapolis Minnies of the Kansas State League. In 1906, he was recruited by, played third base for, the Austin Senators, who were part of the South Texas League that year; the 1906 Senators won their league championship by default when the Houston Buffaloes refused to stop using non-league players. He remained with the Senators in 1907, a year in which he led the league in stolen bases with 78 and won another league championship. During 1907, the Senators would post one of the most lopsided victories in baseball history, by defeating the San Antonio Bronchos in the second game of a doubleheader 44-0.

During this game, Short scored seven runs on five hits, stole four bases and hit a double and a triple. He was referred to in articles as "one of the fastest baserunners and best base-stealers in Texas", was a fan-favorite that year to take over managing the Senators team. Short played again for Austin in 1908 began 1909 with the Houston Buffaloes before being traded to the Waco Navigators for Hub Northen. In 1910, he left the Texas League for the Central Kansas League, where he became player-manager of the Concordia Travelers; the Travelers won league championships in 1910 and 1911, during the latter season, the Travelers and Short were accused by the Clay Center Cubs of "throwing games" to the Junction City Soldiers, hotly debated in opposing newspapers columns in both towns. After the Central Kansas League folded, he continued to play for local Kansas teams until at least 1915. During his early career as a player-manager, Short's teams were referred to as "Short's Boosters" or "Short's Travelers".

In his first two managing seasons, he played with and coached Chick Smith and the Travelers won their league championship. After the South Kansas League folded, Short went on to manage and play for a number of other teams for other baseball leagues throughout Kansas

United Nations Security Council Resolution 1518

United Nations Security Council resolution 1518, adopted unanimously on 24 November 2003, after reaffirming previous resolutions on Iraq 1483, the Council established a Committee to investigate financial assets removed from the country by persons connected to Saddam Hussein. The Security Council recalled the decision to dissolve the Committee established by Resolution 661 and for all states to implement obligations under Resolution 1483, it determined that the situation in Iraq, although improved, continued to constitute a threat to international peace and security. Acting under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter, the Council established a Committee of the Security Council to update lists from the previous Committee concerning individuals or entities connected to Saddam Hussein with immediate effect. Iraqi assets located abroad would be transferred to an account established by the Coalition Provisional Authority; the mandate of the new Committee would be reviewed, expanded to include monitoring compliance with an arms embargo against Iraq, other than weapons and ammunition destined for use by the Coalition Provisional Authority.

The French, German and Russian representatives had requested that the Committee monitor the arms embargo against Iraq, though this was not included in the final draft of the resolution. In its absence, the French representative requested that monitoring be conducted by the Security Council.

Doom (EP)

Doom is an EP and the debut release by Arizonan death metal group Job for a Cowboy. It was released in 2005 through the independent Arizona label King of the Monsters, reissued in 2006 by Metal Blade Records; the EP is noted for being Job for a Cowboy's only deathcore release, as the band would abandon the genre in favor for a pure death metal sound proceeding this release. This is the only release to feature guitarist Andrew Arcurio; this EP was released on December 2005 through the King of the Monsters label. It was re-released on major record label, Metal Blade Records in 2006; the intro track. A music video was created for the song "Entombment of a Machine" in which an elderly man is shown burying machines into the ground along with clips in between of the band performing in a desert-like atmosphere, it debuted as the band's first music video and was directed by Richie Valdez. This is the only Job for a Cowboy release to feature their notorious "pig squeal" vocals. Despite the EP's overall popularity, the release garnered mixed to negative reception from critics.

Much of the reviewers did however make note of the band being at the forefront of the deathcore genre, which at the time was taking off in great numbers. Allmusic reviewer Cosmo Lee stated: "Doom is competent, but trades in sounds, not songs." In which Lee was referring to the fact, that Job for a Cowboy has changed their musical style with their follow-up release Genesis, a purist death metal-sound oriented album, Lee ended the review stating: "Almost overnight, hordes of MySpace copycats sprang up lifting the band's logo font. This is where it all started - or ended, depending on your perspective."Reviewer Kobak of Tiny Mix Tapes noted "Job for a Cowboy are talented musicians. Their songs go through many tempo changes, ranging from the standard cruising metal yelp to the double-bass-drum, full-on Speedy Gonzales thrash; the problem lies in their reliance on well-worn metal clichés." The track "Knee Deep" was central to a popular YouTube video in which the track was synchronized to a clip of the SpongeBob SquarePants episode "Band Geeks".

The clip features various members of the SpongeBob SquarePants cast playing instruments along with "Knee Deep" overlaid to it. All tracks are written by Job for a Cowboy. Doom at Dark Lyrics Entombment of a Machine Video on YouTube
