Robert McGregor Innes Ireland, was a British military officer and motor racing driver. He was a larger-than-life character who, according to a rival team boss, "lived without sense, without an analyst and provoked astonishment and affection from everyone." Ireland was born on 12 June 1930 in Mytholmroyd, West Riding of Yorkshire, the son of a Scottish veterinary surgeon. His family returned to Kirkcudbright, Scotland during his youth, he trained as an engineer with Rolls-Royce, first in Glasgow and in London. Commissioned as a lieutenant in the King's Own Scottish Borderers, he served with the Parachute Regiment in the Suez Canal Zone during 1953 and 1954. Ireland began racing a Riley 9 in 1954, his first year of nationally competitive events was 1957, by which time he was running a small engineering firm in Surrey. Success in sports car racing saw him make his Formula One debut for Team Lotus in 1959. In 1960 he won three non-championship Formula One races and finished fourth in the World Drivers Championship.

Badly injured in the 1961 Monaco Grand Prix, Ireland recovered to win the Solitude Grand Prix and Flugplatzrennen races finished the season with a victory in the United States Grand Prix at Watkins Glen. Despite these successes, he was sacked at the end of the season, team boss Colin Chapman considering Jim Clark a better bet. Despite occasional successes, Ireland never again had a car to match his talent, he was encouraged by Bill France, founder of NASCAR, to participate in the 1967 Daytona 500, one of the last races of his career, where the V8 engine of his Dodge exploded outside the stands. A talented writer, Ireland produced a classic autobiography, All Arms and Elbows, worked as a journalist for the American Road & Track magazine, Autocar magazine, as well as skippering fishing trawlers in the North Atlantic.

Roman Catholic Diocese of Ogdensburg

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Ogdensburg is a Roman Catholic diocese in New York. It was founded on February 15, 1872, it comprises the entirety of Clinton, Franklin, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties and the northern portions of Hamilton and Herkimer counties. On February 23, 2010, the Most Reverend Terry Ronald LaValley was appointed diocesan bishop by Pope Benedict XVI on February 23, 2010, was installed on April 30, 2010; the area covered by the Diocese of Ogdensburg was inhabited by the Iroquois. The 1600s saw the arrival of French and English fur-traders. Catholics in the North Country were served by priests from Quebec. In 1749, the Mission of The Holy Trinity was established by Sulpician Abbé François Picquet from Montreal, who built a mission fort named Fort de La Présentation near the junction of the Oswegatchie River and the St Lawrence River. Bishop de Pontbriand of Quebec visited in 1752. During the French and Indian War the fort was garrisoned by French-Canadian military, but abandoned in favor of Fort Lévis.

During the Colonial Period and until the end of the American Revolution, the Church in New York State was under the jurisdiction of the Vicariate of London. The first settlers in the region were Protestants from New England, it was only towards 1790 that Acadian Catholic immigrants occupied lands around Corbeau, now Coopersville, near Lake Champlain, where they were visited by missionaries from Fort Laprairie, Canada. After the Revolution the area came under the Apostolic Prefecture of the United States, which became in 1789 the Diocese of Baltimore. In 1808 the area became part of the new Diocese of New York. In 1818, a colony of French and German Catholics was brought to Jefferson County by Jacques Leray, son of Count Jacques-Donatien Le Ray de Chaumont, who built for them, for an Irish settlement, several Catholic churches. At the same time Irish and French Canadian immigrants began to arrive and soon there arose several Catholic missions. By 1833 there were congregations established in Ogdensburg and Plattsburg, although Carthage did not as yet have a church.

Each of them served a number of mission stations, while Minerva, New York was served by Father J. Quinn, who travelled from Troy, New York, 100 miles away. In 1847 the northern section of the Diocese of New York was split off to become the newly created Diocese of Albany, an influx of Irish immigrants saw an increase in parishes throughout the area. Missions were established at Antwerp, Belleville and many other places. Under Bishop John McCloskey new parishes were founded at Cape Vincent, Hogansburg and elsewhere. In 1860, Bishop McCloskey put the parish at Carthage under interdict for two years, when disputes between factions resulted in violent confrontations. In 1864 McCloskey established St. Joseph's Provincial Seminary at Troy, which trained priests for the Archdiocese until it was relocated to Dunwoodie in 1896. On February 16, 1872 the Diocese of Ogdensburg was established; the list of bishops and their years of service: Edgar Philip Prindle Wadhams Henry Gabriels Joseph Henry Conroy Francis Joseph Monaghan Bryan Joseph McEntegart, appointed Rector of The Catholic University of America and Bishop of Brooklyn and Archbishop Walter P.

It is based on Boys Over Flowers, written by Yoko Kamio. A sequel entitled Hana Yori Dango Returns aired in 2007 and a movie adaptation, Hana Yori Dango Final, was released in 2008. Makino Tsukushi is a tough, hard-working, middle-class student at the prestigious escalator school Eitoku Gakuen. Makino wanted to attend Eitoku because her idol, an internationally renowned model named Todou Shizuka, was an alumna of the school. Not long after however, Makino discovers the superficial nature of her classmates, their arrogance and her inability to relate to them because of her social status, limits her chances at making friends. Worse yet, the school is ruled by the F4 or Flower Four, composed of playboys Nishikado Soujiro and Mimasaka Akira, introverted Hanazawa Rui and violent and bratty Domyouji Tsukasa; the F4, sons of Japan's wealthiest and most powerful tycoons, bully fellow students out of boredom or malevolence until they are expelled or quit.

Makino's only wish was to remain invisible in Eitoku to avoid getting into trouble. However, she is immersed into the lives of the four legendary bullies after her first and only friend at school, Sanjo Sakurako, accidentally spills juice on Domyouji's white shirt in the cafeteria and she defends her; the next day, she receives a red tag in her locker and as a result, the whole school turns against her. Despite the harassment, the "tough weed", refuses to give in and quit. After Domyouji crushes the prawn her parents painstakingly cooked for her with his shoe, she snaps, knocks him out and declares war back on him; this unexpected retaliation causes him to fall in love with her. But Tsukushi is in love with Rui, who in turn harbors romantic feelings for his childhood friend Shizuka; the courtship between Tsukasa and Tsukushi is the main theme throughout the series.

Minor characters in the Revolution at Sea Saga

The Revolution at Sea Saga is a five-book "trilogy" by writer/novelist James L. Nelson, they encompass the adventures of Captain Isaac Biddlecomb, his good friend Ezra Rumstick, his wife Virginia Stanton in the years 1775 and 1776. The following is an alphabetical list of the minor characters; the main characters and antagonists-Captain Isaac Biddlecomb, Ezra Rumstick, Virginia Stanton, William Stanton and more, are listed separately. The hero/protagonist of the series. See Isaac Biddlecomb Biddlecomb's best friend and first lieutenant. See Ezra Rumstick Biddlecomb's sweetheart/wife. See Virginia Stanton Biddlecomb's employer and on, his father-in-law. See Virginia Stanton The commander of the marines on board the USS Charlemagne. See Elisha Faircloth Edward Fitzgerald is George Washington's adviser in The Maddest Idea. Although his personality and character traits were created by James L. Nelson, it is a historic fact that the first president of the United States had a right-hand man by the same name.

In The Maddest Idea, he is assigned with the job of flushing out the traitor who turned Biddlecomb over to the British. He does this by telling the three men suspected of the traitourous deeds three different places that the captain was heading paying the British commander's underling to be allowed to read the mail sent to him, which reveals to Fitzgerald who the real traitor is. Fitzgerald was known in the second Revolution book for having romantic feelings toward Virginia Stanton, beginning to doubt her affections for Isaac after he sent her a letter telling of their upcoming wedding though they weren't engaged, but directly after she decides to love Isaac as a brother and nothing more, she discovers a hint in the letter that explains that he loved her after all. Major Edward Fitzgerald appears in The Maddest Idea and Lords of the Ocean, in which he off-handedly mentions Virginia Stanton, to which Biddlecomb replies "... I fear, she is no longer Virginia Stanton. She now goes by the name Virginia Biddlecomb."

Sergeant Ebenezer Rogers is the loyal butler of William Stanton. He took care of William's daughter Virginia since the death of her mother, extends his care to any guests of the Stanton household Isaac Biddlecomb. In The Maddest Idea he is the one who rides to warn George Washington and Major Edward Fitzgerald of the traitorous deeds of one of three specific persons, which had resulted in the capture of Biddlecomb and his crew by the H. M. S. Glasgow, under command of Captain William Maltby. Rogers appears in By Force of The Maddest Idea. Nathaniel Sprout is the boatswain aboard the USS Charlemagne, he first appears in The Maddest Idea and is featured in The Continental Risque. He is one of the few of Biddlecomb's Northerners who stay aboard the Charlemagne and begin to take orders from Roger Tottenhill, though never losing their faithfullness to their captain. Sprout sent Midshipman Weatherspoon to convince Ezra Rumstick and Roger Tottenhill to stop their duel and return to the ship immediately.

David Weatherspoon is a fifteen-through-seventeen-year-old sailor aboard the USS Charlemagne. He doesn't appear in By Force of Arms, he has a moderately sized role to play in The Maddest Idea, gets his five minutes in The Continental Risque, in which he stops the riot that has broken out aboard the Charlemagne from escalating by firing a few pistols over the heads of the sailors, who are fighting an all-out civil war skirmish. And before that, when Ezra Rumstick and Roger Tottenhill are engaged in a swordfight-style duel on a small island in order to determine which of them is better suited to be the first lieutenant of the Charlemagne, the bosun sends Mr. Weatherspoon to break them up, which he does with the words, "Sirs...damn it all to Hell! They are getting away with the stores! Now please get into the God-damned boat!" David Weatherspoon is promoted to lieutenant in the space between the fourth books. He is killed in the fifth book by John Smeaton, taking a bullet intended for Captain Isaac Biddlecomb.

Redirects to John Adams John Adams appears in the Revolution at Sea Saga, in The Continental Risque. He is aboard the USS Charlemagne when the H. M. S. Glasgow confronts them. For the rest of his appearances in the book he brags about the part he played in the subsequent battle-namely, firing a pistol once or twice at the opposing crew. Mr. "Midshipman" Appleby is a midshipman aboard the H. M. S. Icarus, he is described as fourteen years old and having "the maturity of a boy that age." He was one of the few. He appears only in By Force of Arms, is like a foreshadowing of Midshipman David Weatherspoon of the other Revolution books. John Biddlecomb the First is the father of Isaac Biddlecomb, he was married to Sarah Biddlecomb, who died in childbirth with their first daughter, Katlin Biddlecomb, after which he and his son went adventuring with Gorham's Rangers, his old friends from the last war, aboard the Providence, a vessel under the command of William Stanton. John was killed in battle shortly after.

John William is the son of Isaac Biddlecomb. He was born in the year 1777, in the town of Boston, in the book By Force of Arms, he gets his first name from his paternal grandfather, his middle name—an uncommon addition in those days-comes from his maternal grandfather. Katlin Biddlecomb is the younger sister of Isaac Biddlecomb, who died in the process of being born, which her mother, Sarah Biddlecomb, didn't survive either, it is mentioned in The Maddest Idea. Sarah Biddlecomb was Isaac Biddlecomb's mother, she died in childbirth with Ka

Mulga parrot

The mulga parrot is endemic to arid scrublands and timbered grasslands in the interior of southern Australia. The male mulga parrot is multicolored, from which the older common name of many-coloured parrot is derived; the mulga parrot was given its current scientific name of Psephotellus varius by American zoologist Austin Hobart Clark in 1910, after its name Psephotus multicolor was ruled invalid as the original combination had been used for another species. Gregory Mathews proposed the name Psephotus dulciei in 1911 for the same reason, unaware of Clark's proposal, published earlier and hence had priority. Mathews described two additional subspecies of mulga parrot in 1912: P. varius rosinae, from a specimen collected from Yorke Peninsula, noting that it had less red on the abdomen and its upper breast was a darker green, P. varius exsul from a specimen from Mount Magnet in Western Australia, reporting it had a more blue than green color overall on the cheeks. In 1917, he revised his classification, noting that he had assumed the type collection came from New South Wales but was now made aware that Brown's original specimen came from the eyre peninsula on the Spencer Gulf.

He added P. varius ethelae from a collection from the Macdonnell Ranges, noting it had all over paler plumage, renamed the New South Wales form P. varius orientalis, noting its brighter plumage and more prominent red color on the abdomen. In 1941, Herbert Condon recognised subspecies varius and orientalis, but conceded evidence was lacking in confirming the other two. In 1955, British evolutionary biologist Arthur Cain reviewed various described subspecies and found none were valid. Cain concluded in 1955 that within the genus Psephotus the mulga parrot was more related to the golden-shouldered parrot than to the red-rumped parrot. A 2011 genetic study including nuclear and mitochondrial DNA found that the mulga parrot was related to the red-capped parrot, the two lineages having diverged in the Miocene; the combined lineage itself diverging from one giving rise to the hooded and golden-shouldered parrots. A 2018 genetic analysis of specimens across the mulga parrot's range found that there were two lineages that had diverged around 402,000 years ago and expanded.

The Flinders Ranges and Eyre Peninsula appear to have been the barrier between the two lineages. Preliminary investigation into physical characteristics that might distinguish them suggested that the red patch on the abdomen was brighter and more extensive in the eastern population. McElroy and colleagues agreed the two populations were distinct enough to be recognised as subspecies, however it is unclear to which group the type specimen belongs to. John Gould called this bird "many-coloured parakeet" or "many-coloured parrot", a term used during the 19th century; the RAOU proposed "mulga parrot" in 1926. Other common names include varied parrot. A 2015 study of museum specimens found that the bill surface area of male mulga parrots had increased by 10.7% between 1871 and 2008. This is consistent with the hypothesis of Allen's rule, where appendages are larger in warmer climates to assist with heat loss. Measuring 27–32 cm in length with a 30–42 cm wingspan, weighing 50–60 g, the mulga parrot is a medium-sized parrot of slim build and long tail.

The species is sexually dimorphic. The male mulga parrot is multicolored, from which the alternate common name many-coloured parrot is derived, it is a bright green overall, with a bluish tinge on the neck and above the eye, paler on the breast. The rump is light green; the forehead is yellow and there is a red patch on the back of the head. The lower belly and thighs are yellowish marked with orange-red and the wings greenish apart from the yellow median wing coverts and blue outer webs of primaries; the long tail is an assortment of colours: the two long central feathers are dark blue tinged with green, the outer feathers are blue shading to white and there is some red on the upper tail coverts. Its bill is a blue-grey edged with black, iris is brown; the female is duller overall, with an olive-brown head and chest, duller yellow forehead and red patch on the back of the head, pale green belly, more brown-grey bill. It has a red shoulder; the species ranges across the drier interior of the Australian continent, from Western New South Wales from Collarenebri, West Wyalong and Griffith westwards through the northwestern tip of Victoria and across South Australia and into the drier central regions of Western Australia west to the Wheatbelt and north to the Pilbara.

The mulga parrot is encountered in pairs in arid grassland and mulga scrubland. Breeding season is anywhere from July to December or after rainfall, with one or two broods raised depending on rainfall. A hollow in a tree is utilised for nesting, a clutch of four to six white eggs measuring 22 x 18 mm is laid. Incubation takes 18 to 21 days and is done by the female alone, the male feeding her while she is on the nest. Higgins, P. J.. Handbook of Australian, New Zealand and Antarctic Birds.
