Interstate 27

Interstate 27 is an Interstate Highway in the U. S. state of Texas, running north from Lubbock to Interstate 40 in Amarillo. These two cities are the only control cities on I-27. In Amarillo, I-27 is known as the Canyon Expressway, although it is called Canyon Drive on its access roads. I-27 was designated the Marshall Formby Memorial Highway after former attorney and Texas State Senator Marshall Formby in 2005; the entire length of I-27 replaced U. S. Route 87 for through traffic. I-27 parallels the BNSF Railway's Plainview Subdivision, which splits from its Chicago-Southern California Transcon line at Canyon and runs south to Lubbock. A large amount of the alignment is on former US 87, but several portions through built-up areas have been bypassed, as well as two longer areas where US 87 still follows the old road; the Interstate begins at a point along the four-lane US 87 freeway south of downtown Lubbock. Mile 0 is posted near 77th Street, about five blocks south of Loop 289. Exit numbering begins just with exit 1 at the 82nd Street interchange.

The Loop 289 interchange is a cloverleaf between the one-way frontage roads of each highway, with direct ramps from I-27 south to Loop 289 west and Loop 289 east to I-27 north. U. S. Highway 84 crosses I-27 at a three-level diamond interchange, with an extra approach from the northeast carrying Avenue A into the junction. Exit 1B connects I-27 south to US 84 and the Loop 289 frontage roads, while all traffic from US 87 north to US 84, US 87 Business, or Loop 289 must use exit 1 for 82nd Street; the six-lane cross section that began at exit 1 remains through Lubbock. Major junctions in that city include U. S. Highway 62/State Highway 114 and U. S. Highway 82. Between these two interchanges, the frontage roads temporarily end. Spur 326 merges with I-27 at exit 6A, exit 6B is a split diamond interchange with Loop 289; the outer lanes leave at Farm to Market Road 2641, reducing I-27 to two lanes in each direction as it passes Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport and leaves the city. I-27 crosses over the Plainview Sub for the first time north of Farm to Market Road 1294, another short gap exists in the frontage roads there.

North of the overpass, the frontage roads are two-way. Old US 87 between exits 13 and 15 is now Loop 461. Along this part of the highway, other similar portions, slip ramps still connect the main lanes with the frontage roads, but intersecting roads pass over all four roadways and the railroad on a long bridge; as it approaches Abernathy, I-27 curves west away from the Plainview Sub. The old main road through the city, between exits 20 and 22, is now Loop 369. Despite I-27's location north of Abernathy, 1/2 mile west of the rail line, all interchanges between Abernathy and Hale Center, except the one at Farm to Market Road, use the same configuration where the intersecting road crosses over all roadways. Approaching Hale Center, I-27 curves northeast as it splits from Farm to Market Road 1424 at a simple diamond interchange; the freeway passes through the city one block east of the old road, now I-27 Business, accessed at exits 36 and 38. As it leaves Hale Center, I-27 turns to the northeast, following the northwest side of the rail line.

The next two interchanges along the railroad between Hale Center and Plainview use the same style, in which the crossroad goes over everything. I-27 Business splits at exit 45, a modified Y interchange, to pass through Plainview, I-27 travels west of that city on a bypass; the two outer interchanges on this bypass, Farm to Market Road 3466 and Quincy Street, are handled in the same way as the interchanges along the railroad, but the other two, U. S. Highway 70 and State Highway 194, are standard diamonds. Between exits 49 and 50 is another overpass over the frontage roads - 24th Street — with no separate slip ramps. I-27 Business ends at a trumpet interchange north of Plainview, where I-27 again begins to parallel the Plainview Sub to the west. Both interchanges between this one and the first split with US 87, a modified Y south of Kress, continue the pattern with the crossroad bridging over everything. After it leaves US 87, I-27 is no longer next to the rail line, but it continues to handle interchanges as it does alongside the line, except at State Highway 86, a standard diamond that serves Tulia.

US 87 rejoins the freeway at a modified diamond north of Tulia, at which I-27 crosses to the east side of the Plainview Sub before paralleling it to that side. After several of the typical interchanges adjacent to the railroad, US 87 splits again at a modified Y south of Happy. Except for the northernmost one, all of the interchanges on the bypass of Happy and Canyon are diamonds. Exits 109 and 110 are integrated, with some access to one road provided via the other. I-27 i

Darnytsia (Kiev Metro)

Darnytsia is a station on the Kiev Metro's Sviatoshynsko-Brovarska Line. The station was opened on November 5, 1965 as part of the westwards eastwards expansion of the Brovary radius and is the second one to be on the left bank of the Dnieper River, it takes its name from the historic neighborhood of Darnytsia. Designed by architects I. Maslenkov and V. Bogdanovsky, the station presents itself as a simple surface platform with a pillar-supported concrete canopy, a design, identical to the three other stations that opened along with it and typical for the 1960s public architecture. A terminus, not far from the station is the "Darnytsia" depot, the first operational in Kiev, served the Obolonsko–Teremkivska Line from 1976 until 1982 when the "Obolon" depot opened; the Darntsia station is located on the Brovary Avenue. Until only one passenger subway led in and out of the station, until a new western overpass exit was opened on November 28, 2006; this was necessary as the station is one of the busiest on the radius due to the large amount of land transport coming from the northern left-bank districts and the local shopping center of Darnytsia

Offending Angels

Offending Angels is a 2000 British romantic comedy film directed by Andrew Rajan. Sam and Baggy are two non-committal slackers who while their time away with nonsensical affairs while dreaming of greater things in life. Paris and Zeke are two guardian angels. Paris is a former dolphin. Susannah Harker as Paris. Shaun Parkes as Zeke. Andrew Lincoln as Sam. Andrew Rajan as Baggy. Jack Davenport as Rory. Stephen Mangan as Fergus. Michael Cochrane as Mentor. Jesse Hopkins as Young Sam; the film became notorious. It had a £70,000 budget and did well on the festival circuit, selling out at every attendance. Subsequently picked up by Ardent International sales agents on the strength of press reviews and actors performances, just at the time when Ardent CEO Prince Edward exited the industry, which proved to be terrible timing for the film release in the UK; the film split the critics.

Aguessac is a French commune in the Aveyron department in the Occitanie region of southern France. The inhabitants of the commune are known as Nagassols or Nagassoles Aguessac is just south of the Massif Central and is located some 4 km north of Millau and 20 km south of Severac-le-Chateau, it can be accessed by the D29 road branching off the D911 in the west and continuing into the commune and south to the village. There is the D809 coming from Millau in the south passing through the village and continuing north to join the A75 autoroute; the D907 goes north-east from the village to Riviere-sur-Tarn and the D167 goes west by a tortuous mountain route to Saint-Germain. The famous Millau Viaduct is on the A75 autoroute to the west of the commune; the commune is high country farmland. There are many streams flowing through the commune: the Ruisseau de Malbose forms the northern border of the commune, the Lumansonesque forms the eastern border flowing into the Tarn which forms the southern part of the eastern border.

The Lumansonesque is fed by the Barbade with its numerous tributaries which forms part of the western border before flowing across the commune and joining the Lumansonesque. List of Successive Mayors of Aguessac Mayors from 1926 The gender and age of the population of the Aguessac commune in 2009 and, that of the department of Aveyron in the same year are represented in the following table; the population of the commune was 53.6% men and 46.4% women in 2009. It has a structure on average younger than the population of metropolitan France. There are in fact 117 young people under 20 years old for every 100 people over 60 years, while for France the youth index, equal to the division of the share of less than 20 years by the share of over 60 years, is 1.06. The Youth Index for the commune is higher than for the department and for of the region.

Shin'ichirĊ Tomonaga

Shinichiro Tomonaga cited as Sin-Itiro Tomonaga in English, was a Japanese physicist, influential in the development of quantum electrodynamics, work for which he was jointly awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965 along with Richard Feynman and Julian Schwinger. Tomonaga was born in Tokyo in 1906, he was the second child and eldest son of a Japanese philosopher, Tomonaga Sanjūrō. He entered the Kyoto Imperial University in 1926. Hideki Yukawa a Nobel Prize winner, was one of his classmates during undergraduate school. During graduate school at the same university, he worked as an assistant in the university for three years. In 1931, after graduate school, he joined Nishina's group in RIKEN. In 1937, while working at Leipzig University, he collaborated with the research group of Werner Heisenberg. Two years he returned to Japan due to the outbreak of the Second World War, but finished his doctoral degree on the study of nuclear materials with his thesis on work he had done while in Leipzig.

In Japan, he was appointed to a professorship in the Tokyo University of Education. During the war he studied the magnetron, meson theory, his super-many-time theory. In 1948, he and his students re-examined a 1939 paper by Sidney Dancoff that attempted, but failed, to show that the infinite quantities that arise in QED can be canceled with each other. Tomonaga applied his super-many-time theory and a relativistic method based on the non-relativistic method of Wolfgang Pauli and Fierz to speed up and clarify the calculations, he and his students found that Dancoff had overlooked one term in the perturbation series. With this term, the theory gave finite results. In the next year, he was invited by Robert Oppenheimer to work at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, he studied a many-body problem on the collective oscillations of a quantum-mechanical system. In the following year, he returned to Japan and proposed the Tomonaga–Luttinger liquid. In 1955, he took the leadership in establishing the Institute for Nuclear Study, University of Tokyo.

In 1965, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics, with Julian Schwinger and Richard P. Feynman, for the study of QED for the discovery of the renormalization method, he died of throat cancer in Tokyo in 1979. Tomonaga was married in 1940 to Ryōko Sekiguchi, they had one daughter. He was awarded the Order of Culture in 1952, the Grand Cordon of the Order of the Rising Sun in 1976. In recognition of three Nobel laureates' contributions, the bronze statues of Shin'ichirō Tomonaga, Leo Esaki, Makoto Kobayashi was set up in the Central Park of Azuma 2 in Tsukuba City in 2015. 1946 – Asahi Prize 1948 – Japan Academy Prize 1951 – Member of the Japan Academy 1952 – Order of Culture 1964 – Lomonosov Gold Medal 1965 – Nobel Prize in Physics 1967 – Grand Cordon of the Order of the Rising Sun Tomonaga, Sin-Itiro.
