SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Henry More

Henry More was an English philosopher of the Cambridge Platonist school. Henry was born in Grantham, Lincolnshire on 12 October 1614, he was the seventh son of Alexander More, mayor of Grantham, Anne More. Both his parents were Calvinists but he himself "could never swallow that hard doctrine."He was schooled at The King's School, Grantham and at Eton College. In 1631 he entered Cambridge, at about the time John Milton was leaving it, he took his BA in 1635, his MA in 1639, afterwards became a fellow of his college, turning down all other positions that were offered. He would not accept the mastership of his college, to which, it is understood, he would have been preferred in 1654, when Ralph Cudworth was appointed. In 1675, he accepted a prebend in Gloucester Cathedral, but only to resign it in favour of his friend Edward Fowler, afterwards bishop of Gloucester. More taught many notable pupils, including Anne Finch, sister of Heneage Finch, subsequently Earl of Nottingham, she became Lady Conway, at her country seat at Ragley in Warwickshire, More would spend "a considerable part of his time."

She and her husband both appreciated him, amidst the woods of this retreat he wrote several of his books. The spiritual enthusiasm of Lady Conway was a considerable factor in some of More's speculations though she at length joined the Quakers, she became the friend not only of More and William Penn, but of Franciscus Mercurius van Helmont and Valentine Greatrakes, mystical thaumaturgists of the 17th-century. Ragley became a centre of spiritualism. More was a rationalist theologian, he attempted to use the details of 17th-century mechanical philosophy—as developed by René Descartes—to establish the existence of immaterial substance. More rejected Cartesian dualism on the following grounds: "It would be easier for me to attribute matter and extension to the soul, than to attribute to an immaterial thing the capacity to move and be moved by the body.' His difficulties with Cartesian dualism arose, not from an inability to understand how material and immaterial substances could interact, but from an unwillingness to accept any unextended entity as any kind of real entity.

More continues "...it is plain that if a thing be at all it must be extended." So for More'spirit' too must be extended. This led him to the idea of a'fourth dimension" in which the spirit is extended and to an original solution to the mind-body problem. More appears to be the origin of the still-popular slur against medieval Scholasticism that it engaged in useless speculative debates, such as how many angels might dance on the head of a pin, in the second chapter of The Immortality of the Soul. A quotation from More is used as the epigraph of Ralph Waldo Emerson's "The Over-soul." Helena Blavatsky, the founder of Theosophy, quoted More and gave an exposition of his ideas in chapter VII of "Isis Unveiled". More was a prolific writer of prose; the Divine Dialogues condenses his general view of religion. Like many others, he ended as a prose writer, his first work, published in 1642, but written two years earlier, was Psychodoia Platonica: or, a Platonicall Song of the Soul, consisting of four several Poems.

It was followed in 1647 by his full collection of Philosophical Poems, which includes The Song of the Soul, enlarged and is dedicated to his father. A second edition was published in the same year, it was included by A. B. Grosart in his Chertsey Worthies Library. More's prose works are: Observations upon Anthroposophic Theomagica and Anima Magica Abscondita, by Alazonomastix Philalethes, 1650; the Second Lash of Alazonomastix, a rejoinder to Vaughan, 1651.

Bugoloobi Wastewater Treatment Plant

Bugoloobi Wastewater Treatment Plant Bugoloobi Sewerage Treatment Plant, is a wastewater treatment project in Uganda. When completed as expected in 2018, the treatment plant will be the largest wastewater treatment plant in the countries of the East African Community, capable of processing 45,000,000 liters of wastewater daily; the water treatment facility is under construction in the neighborhood of Bugoloobi, in Nakawa Division, in the south-eastern section of Kampala, the capital and largest city of Uganda. This is 3.6 kilometres, by road, east of the central business district of the city. The geographical coordinates of the plant are 0°19'06.0"N, 32°36'27.0"E. The Bugoloobi WTP, collects wastewater and sewerage from parts of the city, including Old Kampala, Katwe, Kibuli, Nakawa, Naguru and Kamwookya; the new expanded STP is aimed at increasing and improving sanitation services in the city and reducing the pollution of the Nakivubo Channel, a surface-water effluent into Lake Victoria, thereby increasing the lake's environmental sustainability.

The project involves the construction of an ultra-modern sewerage treatment plant in Bugoloobi, a sewerage pre-treatment plant in Kinawattaka, a sewerage pumping station on Kibira Road and a sewer network measuring 31 kilometres. New areas to be added to the sewerage network include Bugoloobi, Kasokoso, Banda and neighbouring areas; the bio-digesters in this plant, are expected to generate gases, which will be heated to generate 630 kilowatts of electricity, to be used internally in the plant. In addition, the solid wastes removed from the wastewater, are expected to be dried and sold as fertilizer, or as raw material for the manufacture of cooking briquettes; the water treatment facility is wholly owned by the National Water and Sewerage Corporation, a government parastatal company, responsible for provision of potable water and sewerage services nationwide. Construction began in May 2014, is expected to conclude in 2018. NWSC plans to construct new sewerage treatment plants in Nalukolongo, between Ndeeba and Nateete, along the Kampala–Masaka Road and in Kajjansi, in addition the one in Lubigi, completed in 2014.

This project has received funding from the government of Uganda, the African Development Bank the European Union and KfW.

Caladenia maritima

Caladenia maritima known as coastal fingers or Angahook pink fingers, is a species of orchid endemic to Victoria. It has a single hairless leaf and one or white flowers with greenish backs and only occurs in the coastal district of Anglesea. Caladenia maritima is a terrestrial, deciduous, herb with an underground tuber and a single glabrous, linear leaf, 60–150 mm long and 1–3 mm wide. One or two white flowers 20–25 mm long and wide are borne on a stalk 100–200 mm tall; the backs of the sepals and petals are greenish with a dark line along the centre. The dorsal sepal is 10 -- 15 mm long and 2 -- 3 mm wide; the lateral sepals are 13 -- 4 -- 5 mm wide and spreading. The petals are 13 -- 4 -- 5 mm wide and arranged like the lateral sepals; the labellum is white with purple lines and blotches. The tip of the labellum curled under; the sides of the labellum have a few narrow teeth near the tip and there are two short rows of yellow or white calli in the centre of the labellum. Flowering occurs from September to October.

Caladenia maritima was first described in 1999 by David Jones from a specimen collected near Anglesea and the description was published in The Orchadian. The specific epithet is a Latin word meaning "of the sea". Coastal fingers occurs near Anglesea in a single population, growing in woodland with a heathy understorey. Caladenia maritima is not classified under the Victorian Government Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988 or under the Australian Government Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 but has been listed as "endangered" in Victoria according to the Advisory List of Rare or Threatened Vascular Plants in Victoria – 2004

Calendar (British TV programme)

Calendar is the regional news service for the ITV Yorkshire region. The flagship weekday 6 pm programme is presented by Duncan Wood; the news service transmits to Lincolnshire, most of Yorkshire and parts of Lancashire, the North Midlands and north western Norfolk areas of England. It is produced and broadcast from ITV Yorkshire's Leeds studios with district reporters and camera crews based at newsrooms in Hull and Sheffield. Calendar first aired on the launch day of Yorkshire Television – Monday 29 July 1968. Since its launch, the programme has been produced at ITV Yorkshire's main studios in Kirkstall Road, Leeds. Calendar's first presenter was Jonathan Aitken. In years, it was hosted by Richard Whiteley, Austin Mitchell, Marylyn Webb, Christa Ackroyd and Mike Morris. Upon gaining the Belmont transmitter in 1974 from Anglia Television, which served south Lincolnshire and north Norfolk, the programme developed a regional opt-out service for the area within the main programme. At the same time, Yorkshire Television inherited the Anglia news offices in Grimsby and Hull and opened a further newsroom in Lincoln.

For several years until the early 1980s, viewers served by the Belmont transmitter received a localised weather forecast produced by the weather department at Anglia. On 28 March 1977, Yorkshire Television launched a six-week breakfast television experiment. Good Morning Calendar is credited as being the United Kingdom's first breakfast television programme, six years before the launch of the BBC's Breakfast Time; the programme ran concurrently with a similar ITV Tyne Tees programme, Good Morning North for North East viewers. Both series ended after nine weeks on 27 May 1977. During the 1970s and early 1980s, Calendar's output consisted of a main evening programme alongside lunchtime and late night bulletins on weekdays; when ITV Schools programming was moved to Channel 4 in 1987 and daytime programming introduced to ITV, national ITN and regional bulletins were introduced at 9:25 am and 11 am, along with a mid-afternoon bulletin. In the latter part of the 1980s, ITV News Calendar expanded its lunchtime bulletin into a half-hour magazine show, Calendar Lunchtime Live.

The programme was scrapped in early 1988 but reintroduced for a short period during 2001. For over twenty years from June 1990, Calendar was produced and broadcast from a dedicated news centre and studio facility based in a converted roller rink opposite the main complex on Kirkstall Road. On Monday 24 September 1990, a third sub-regional opt-out for south Yorkshire and north Derbyshire was introduced – "South" from Sheffield aired at lunchtime and within the main 6 pm programme while "East" aired in east Yorkshire and North Norfolk and Calendar News was broadcast to the rest of the region; the separate East and South services continued until December 2006. The newsgathering and production teams at Calendar were the subject of a 1995 fly-on-the-wall Channel 4 documentary series, Deadline. On Monday, 8 January 2007, Calendar's main 6 pm programme was split into North and South editions for the region. All other bulletins were pan-regional; the previous "East" and "South" regions were merged to form a larger "South" area.

"North" "South". The regular presenters of the North edition were Christine Talbot. Both editions of the programme were broadcast from ITV Yorkshire's Leeds studios. Cutbacks in ITV regional news coverage in early 2009 meant that its seventeen regions would be cut down to nine to "save costs", regional news programmes would become pan-regional; the final sub-regional editions of Calendar aired on Wednesday 18 February 2009 with a new pan-regional programme launching the next day. Short opt-outs are retained for the North and South sub-regions within the 6 pm programme and after News at Ten – either the North or South opt is pre-recorded depending on the day's news; the remaining sub-regional elements were: A 6-minute opt-out during the main 6 pm programme. The full 8-minute late night bulletin, following ITV News at Ten. Both sub-regional editions utilise the same presenter and studio/set, therefore one of the two opt-outs – depending on the day's news – is pre-recorded'as live' shortly before broadcast.

Following a refit of the main Kirkstall Road studios to accommodate HD production of Emmerdale, the news centre opposite the building was closed and production of Calendar moved back into the main facility in October 2012. On 23 July 2013, proposals for a more localised Channel 3 news service were approved – Calendar extended the North and South opt-out services from 6 minutes to 20 minutes during the half-hour 6 pm programme, in addition to separate weekday daytime and weekend bulletins for the two regions; the separate late night bulletins are retained and localised weather forecasts were introduced. The expanded sub-regional service launched on Monday 16 September 2013. Calendar began broadcasting in high definition on Sunday 31 March 2016; as with many ITV regional news programmes, some areas of the ITV Yorkshire region overlap with neighbouring ITV regions. For instance.

Batwing Spaceshot

The Batwing Spaceshot is a thrill ride located at Warner Bros. Movie World on the Gold Coast, Australia, it opened on 20 December 2006. The ride is an S&S Space Shot, a pneumatic powered ride which shoots riders up and back down; the rise reaches a height of 61 metres and riders experience a force of up to 4 Gs while travelling at a speed of 64 kilometres per hour. It carries 360 passengers per hour, lasts for 50 seconds; the ride opened one year after the opening of the Superman Escape roller coaster, which opened on 26 December 2005. First signs of construction were seen in the middle of 2006 when the queue for the former Looney Tunes Musical Revue show was demolished; this was followed by the excavation of ground in the area. In July 2006, it was confirmed; the ride was announced to be a Batman themed space shot tower called Batwing Spaceshot. On 20 December 2006, the ride opened to the public; the ride was installed by Ride Entertainment Group. Official website
