Illumos

Illumos is a free and open-source Unix operating system. It is based on OpenSolaris, based on System V Release 4 and the Berkeley Software Distribution. Illumos comprises a kernel, device drivers, system libraries, utility software for system administration; this core is now the base for many different open-sourced illumos distributions, in a similar way in which the Linux kernel is used in different Linux distributions. The maintainers write illumos in lowercase since some computer fonts do not distinguish a lowercase L from an uppercase i. Illumos was announced via webinar on Thursday, 3 August 2010, as a community effort of some core Solaris engineers to create a open source Solaris by swapping closed source bits of OpenSolaris with open implementations; the original plan explicitly stated that Illumos would not be a fork. However, after Oracle announced discontinuing OpenSolaris, plans were made to fork the final version of the Solaris ON kernel allowing Illumos to evolve into a kernel of its own.

As of 2010, efforts focused on libc, the NFS lock manager, the crypto module and many device drivers to create a Solaris-like OS with no closed, proprietary code. As of 2012, development emphasis includes transitioning from the historical compiler, Studio, to GCC; the "userland" software is now built with GNU contains many GNU utilities such as GNU tar. Illumos is led by founder Garrett D'Amore and other community members/developers such as Bryan Cantrill and Adam Leventhal, via a Developers' Council; the Illumos Foundation has been incorporated in the State of California as a 5016 trade association, with founding board members Jason Hoffman, Evan Powell, Garrett D'Amore. As of August 2012 the foundation was in the process of formalizing its by-laws and organizational development. At OpenStorage Summit 2010, the new logo for Illumos was revealed, with official type and branding to follow over, its primary development project, illumos-gate, derives from OS/Net, a Solaris kernel with the bulk of the drivers, core libraries, basic utilities, similar to what is delivered by a BSD "src" tree.

It was dependent on OpenSolaris OS/Net, but a fork was made after Oracle silently decided to close the development of Solaris and unofficially killed the OpenSolaris project. ZFS, a combined file system and logical volume manager providing a high level of data integrity for large storage capacities. Solaris Containers, a low overhead implementation of operating-system-level virtualization technology for x86 and SPARC systems.

Marius Müller-Westernhagen

Marius Müller-Westernhagen is a German actor and musician. Best known for the maudlin hit "Johnny Walker", Marius Müller-Westernhagen has been a feature in German rock music since the mid-1970s. Marius is known for his energetic public concerts, his fans know his anthem-like songs by heart. Though written a few years earlier, his song "Freiheit" is considered as an anthem of the German Reunification. While keeping away from the fashionable, Marius has managed to reinvent himself every few years, is popular with multiple generations of Germans; as a result of his singing which exclusively in German language in a country where pop and rock are performed in English, Westernhagen seemed destined for obscurity, but has managed to use this to his advantage, defining himself as a durable alternative to the perceivably manufactured English-language hits of America and the UK. Müller-Westernhagen has acted in films and in radio. 1975: Das erste Mal 1976: Bittersüß 1977: Ganz allein krieg ich's nicht hin 1978: Mit Pfefferminz bin ich dein Prinz 1980: Sekt oder Selters 1981: Stinker 1982: Das Herz eines Boxers 1983: Geiler is' schon 1984: Die Sonne so rot 1985: Laß uns leben – 13 Balladen 1986: Lausige Zeiten 1987: Westernhagen 1989: Halleluja 1990: Live 1992: Jaja 1994: Affentheater 1996: Keine Zeit 1998: Radio Maria 2000: So weit...

Annie Heloise Abel

Annie Heloise Abel was among the earliest professional historians to study Native Americans. She was one of the first thirty women in the United States to earn a PhD in history. One of the ablest historians of her day, Abel was an expert on the history of British and American Indian policies; as another historian has put it: "She was the first academically trained historian in the United States to consider the development of Indian-white relations and, although her focus was narrowly political and her methodology entirely archival-based, in this she was a pioneer." Annie Heloise Abel was born at Fernhurst, England. She emigrated to the U. S. in 1885, following her parents who were settling in Salina, Kansas for the second time. Her father worked as her mother ran a small family farm. Abel attended Salina High School, graduating in 1893, she began teaching in the Kansas public schools. In 1895, Abel began studies at the University of Kansas. After two years of high school teaching, she attended the University of Kansas for her M.

A. in History. Under the direction of Kansas historian Frank Haywood Hodder, Abel wrote an M. A. thesis entitled: "Indian Reservations in Kansas and the Extinguishment of Their Title." Based on that work, her Kansas advisor there recommended her for PhD coursework at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York and Abel began her studies there in 1900. After her potential advisor, Moses Coit Tyler, she decided to leave Cornell, return to Kansas. To pay for graduate tuition, she returned to teaching high school from 1901 to 1903. In 1903, with the encouragement of Kansas faculty, Abel applied for a Bulkley Scholarship in American History to fund her PhD degree at Yale University; when her sister, Rosa Abel, begin PhD work in English Literature at Yale, Abel moved to New Haven to take up her studies at Yale University. She intended to focus on Native Americans and U. S. Indian policy, a topic no professional historians had researched in detail. At Yale, Abel studied with Edward Gaylord Bourne, she was the first person to use and analyze Indian Office records to understand federal policy and the idea of Indian Removal.

Her dissertation, entitled “The History of Events Resulting in Indian Consolidation West of the Mississippi,” was published in the Annual Report of the American Historical Association. It became the standard work on federal policies resulting in Indian Removal, her thorough research of Indian Office and congressional records became a model for the first generation of scholars and Native activists to criticize those policies. The American Historical Association awarded her the Justin Winsor Prize in 1906 for her early work; that prize, created by the American Historical Association to recognize the best manuscript in the history of the Western Hemisphere, made Annie Abel an authority on national Indian policy. Because only teaching colleges or women's colleges would hire women, it took her some years to find full time academic work. Abel served as the Historian for the U. S. Indian office and taught part-time at Goucher College, a women's college outside of Washington, DC, she became active in local suffrage politics after she became a citizen in 1910.

She was hired as a faculty member at Smith College in Northampton Massachusetts in 1908 and spent 12 years teaching there, moving up the academic ladder. While conducting research in Australia, she met and married George Cockburn Henderson, an Australian historian, in October 1922, in Adelaide, Australia; the following year he had a mental breakdown and was hospitalized in June 1923. Abel returned to the United States; the marriage was dissolved. During the 1924 -- 1925 school year Abel taught history at Sweet Briar College in Washington, her parents and several siblings had settled in southwest Washington state in the 1910s where logging and fishing had brought a booming population. After she received the Alice Freeman Palmer Traveling Fellowship awarded by the American Association of University Women in 1925, she resumed her intensive research in England and Australia. In 1928 Abel-Henderson was appointed professor of history at the University of Kansas, she left after only one semester when she received a two-year research grant from the Social Science Research Council.

Those funds enabled her to travel to Canada, Washington, D. C. and St. Louis, to continue her studies on British policies toward Australian aborigines. In the 1930s, she retired to Aberdeen, but continued her scholarship by receiving foundation and library study awards, she wrote four books in the 1930s, but turned her attention to publishing valuable accounts of western travel, the fur trade, Indian policy that she had unearthed in her research. She edited the letters and account books of Francis A. Chardon, a fur trader who had traveled and lived among American Indians on the Upper Missouri from 1834 to 1839. Abel published that rare account of life in the Upper Missouri River in 1932, she and her sister, Rose Abel Wright with a Yale PhD, collaborated on translating and editing another trader's account that Abel found among French geographer Joseph Nicollet's papers that ended up in the U. S. War Department Library; this account of a French expedition along the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers in 1803–1805 overlapped with the U.

S. Lewis and Clark expedition and left a vital map that remained unknown until Abel and her sister brought it to life; that edition of the Loisel expedition, was titled Tabeau’s Narrative of Loisel’s Expedition to the Upper Missouri, published in 1939. After World War Two ended, Abel-Henderson and her sisters worked with the British-American War Relief Association in Seattle, helping to resettle British

Hinterstoder

Hinterstoder is a municipality in the district of Kirchdorf an der Krems in Upper Austria, Austria. The village is located close on the border to 600 m above sea level. Hinterstoder is surrounded by several mountains: Grosser Priel, Kleiner Priel and Warscheneck; the municipality of Hinterstoder consist of following villages: Hinterberg, Hinterstoder and Hintertambergau. Hinterstoder has been part of Austria since the 12th century, when it was conquered from the Duchy of Bavaria; the village was mentioned the first time in a document in 1240 as "Stoder". Stoder is a word from the Slavonic language and means "cold" or "stony ground"; the first settlers of Hinterstoder were Slavs. The Traun river which flows through the cities of Wels and Linz, was the border between the German-speaking and the Slavonian-speaking settlers in those times. In 1890 the first overnight stays were recorded. Tourism started in Hinterstoder. In 1897 the first police station was opened. Hinterstoder received its railway connection in 1906 and in 1910 the sport of skiing became popular.

The first ski race took place on 10 December 1912. Today the village is world-famous for its world cup ski races; the first ski race for the world cup was hosted in 1986. This was another important stimulus for winter tourism in Hinterstoder. Since the competition among the candidates for World Cup races is large and the World Cup course on the Bärenalm did not meet the requirements of the FIS anymore, the chairman of the Ski Club Hinterstoder Rudolf Rohregger urged to construct a new, more attractive and selective World Cup slope in Hinterstoder; this ambitious goal has been achieved with the new World Cup Run on the Hoess. The construction of the race course was started in late summer 2004; the first World Cup race on the new slope took place in the 2006-07 season. The new "Hannes Trinkl valley descent" honors its namesake, one of the world's best local downhill skiers in recent years. With a length of 2,250 meters, the piste runs more or less directly into the valley with an average slope of 35 percent.

Natural terrain edges and steep slopes with a gradient of 55 and 60 percent make this run spectacular. The slope meets all the required criteria to hold FIS World Cup Super G, giant slalom and slalom races for men and ladies. Special attention was paid to the design of the finish arena, from where spectators can view large parts of the slope and reach the finish area from the nearby parking. Since its completion Hinterstoder hosted a meeting of the 2011 World Cup with complete success

EMLL 32nd Anniversary Show

The EMLL 32nd Anniversary Show was a professional wrestling major show event scripted and produced by Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre that took place on September 24, 1965 in Arena México, Mexico City, Mexico. The event commemorated the 32nd anniversary of EMLL, which would become the oldest professional wrestling promotion in the world; the Anniversary show is EMLL's biggest show of their Super Bowl event. In the main event of the seven-match show Karloff Lagarde defeated Huracán Ramírez in a best two-out-of-three falls match to win the NWA World Welterweight Championship. In the semi-main event match Espanto I defended the Mexican National Light Heavyweight Championship against Mil Máscaras, giving Mil Máscaras his first defeat in Arena México. On the show the team of El Santo and Rayo de Jalisco defeated the team of Benny Galant and Henry Pilusso by disqualification. Four additional singles matches rounded out the show, it was reported as a sell out. The 1965 Anniversary show commemorated the 32nd anniversary of the Mexican professional wrestling company Empresa Mexicana de Lucha Libre holding their first show on September 22, 1933 by promoter and founder Salvador Lutteroth.

EMLL was rebranded early in 1992 to become Consejo Mundial de Lucha Libre signal their departure from the National Wrestling Alliance. With the sales of the Jim Crockett Promotions to Ted Turner in 1988 EMLL became the oldest, still-operating wrestling promotion in the world. Over the years EMLL/CMLL has on occasion held multiple shows to celebrate their anniversary but since 1977 the company has only held one annual show, considered the biggest show of the year, CMLL's equivalent of WWE's WrestleMania or their Super Bowl event. CMLL has held their Anniversary show at Arena México in Mexico City, Mexico since 1956, the year the building was completed, over time Arena México earned the nickname "The Cathedral of Lucha Libre" due to it hosting most of EMLL/CMLL's major events since the building was completed. Traditionally EMLL/CMLL holds their major events on Friday Nights, replacing their scheduled Super Viernes show; the event featured seven professional wrestling matches with different wrestlers involved in pre-existing scripted feuds and storylines.

Wrestlers were portrayed as either heels or faces as they followed a series of tension-building events, which culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches. Champion Espanto I defending the Mexican National Light Heavyweight Championship against Mil Máscaras. Máscaras had only made his debut in July of that year, but the fact that he was in a feature match on EMLL's biggest show of the year showed that he had potential early in his career. In the main event of the night Huracán Ramírez challenged Karloff Lagarde for the NWA World Welterweight Championship. Lagarde was able to turn back the challenges of Ramírez in what was described as a "stellar bout"
