Jane's Addiction

Jane's Addiction is an American rock band from Los Angeles, formed in 1985. The band consists of vocalist Perry Farrell, guitarist Dave Navarro, drummer Stephen Perkins and bassist Chris Chaney. Founded by Farrell and original bass guitarist Eric Avery following the disintegration of Farrell's previous band Psi Com, Jane's Addiction was one of the first bands from the early 1990s alternative rock movement to gain both mainstream media attention and commercial success in the United States. Jane's Addiction's first release was a self-titled live album in 1987 and caught the attention of Warner Bros. Records; the band's first two studio albums, Nothing's Shocking and Ritual de lo habitual, were released to widespread critical acclaim, an increasing cult fanbase. As a result, Jane's Addiction became icons of what Farrell dubbed the "Alternative Nation"; the band's initial farewell tour, in 1991, launched the first Lollapalooza, which has since become a perennial alternative rock festival. The band reunited in 1997, with Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers replacing Avery on bass guitar.

In 2001, a second reunion took place, with Martyn LeNoble—and Chris Chaney—occupying the role of bass guitarist. In 2003, the band released its third studio album, before dissolving again the following year. In 2008, the band's original line-up embarked on a world tour. Eric Avery, subsequently left the band in early 2010 as the group began working on new material; the band released its fourth studio album The Great Escape Artist in 2011, with Chaney returning to the band for its recording and subsequent tour. In 2016, Jane's Addiction were nominated for induction into the Roll Hall of Fame. Jane's Addiction formed from the remains of Psi Com. In mid-1985, Farrell was searching for a bassist to replace Kelly Wheeler in the faltering Psi-com, he was introduced to Eric Avery by Carla Bozulich, the pair bonded over a mutual appreciation of Joy Division and The Velvet Underground. They began to practice together, although Avery never became a full-fledged member of Farrell's disintegrating group; the new band was dubbed "Jane's Addiction" in honor of Farrell's housemate, Jane Bainter, their muse and inspiration.

"My girlfiend and I were sitting in the car…" Farrell recalled, "and we started to think about band names. She threw in Jane's Heroin Experience. I thought. If you want to invite people in, you don't want to put heroin on your door."In its formative incarnation, Jane's Addiction went through four guitarists and featured Matt Chaikin of Kommunity FK, on drums. After Chaikin failed to show up for rehearsals, Farrell sought a new drummer. Avery's younger sister Rebecca suggested her boyfriend Stephen Perkins. Avery was uncertain because of their differing tastes in music, but relented. After Perkins was hired, the drummer and Rebecca promised to get their friend Dave Navarro into the group. Based on Perkins' recommendation, the band hired Navarro. Jane's Addiction became a sensation on the Los Angeles club scene headlining at Scream, won interest from a variety of record labels. While the group decided to sign with Warner Bros. Records label Triple X Records first; the band's manager negotiated the largest advance up to that point, with Warner Bros. signing the band for between $250,000 to $300,000.

In January 1987, the band recorded its debut Jane's Addiction during a performance at the Roxy Theatre, at a cost of $4,000. Before the album's release, Jane's Addiction supported British band Love and Rockets on a two-month tour in late 1987. In late 1987, the band opened for former Bauhaus vocalist Peter Murphy at the now demolished Fender's Ballroom in Long Beach. In January 1988, Jane's Addiction went into the studio to record its major label debut and follow-up to Jane's Addiction, Nothing's Shocking. Warner Bros. gave Jane's Addiction a list of producers to choose from, but the group chose Dave Jerden. Nothing's Shocking was released in 1988. "Mountain Song" was released as a single. Farrell decided to release the music video commercially with added live footage to create the Soul Kiss home video; because of lack of airplay on MTV and modern rock radio, the album only sold 200,000 to 250,000 copies in its first year of release. After the album's release, the band went on tour, opening for The Ramones.

By the end of the tour, Jane's Addiction was headlining theaters. During the recording sessions, Farrell stated he wanted 50% of the band's publishing royalties for writing the lyrics, plus a quarter of the remaining half for writing music, adding up to 62.5%. Bassist Eric Avery said he and the other members – guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins – were stunned by these demands. Farrell refused to compromise. One day Jerden drove to the studio to find Farrell and Perkins leaving. Warner Bros. called an emergency meeting to resolve the situation. Farrell received the percentage he sought, the other members received 12.5 percent each. Avery said. Not long after the royalties dispute and Avery – who had cofounded the band – had a falling-out; this was the result of Avery's newfound sobriety as well as an incident in which Farrell believed Avery had drunkenly tried to pick up his girlfriend. "Unfortunately," Farrell recalled, "the tensions between Eric and I affected the whole family. Some people were asked to tak

Brookhaven, Georgia

Brookhaven is a city in the northeastern suburbs of Atlanta and is located in western DeKalb County, United States, directly northeast of Atlanta. On July 31, 2012, Brookhaven was approved in a referendum to become DeKalb County's 11th city. Incorporation took place on December 17, 2012, on which date municipal operations commenced. With a population of around 54,145 it is the largest city in DeKalb County; the new city stretches over 12 square miles. Brookhaven's first permanent European settler was John Evins, who started a plantation around 1810. Harris and Solomon Goodwin, who moved to Georgia from South Carolina, became owners of the land in the 1830s; the Goodwin home and the family graveyard have been preserved at the 3900 block of Peachtree Road, near Dresden Drive. A train station known as Goodwin's was constructed along the Atlanta and Richmond railway in 1873; the settlement of Cross Keys, with a population of 250 in 1876, was located one mile north along the rail line from Goodwin's.

In 1879 Cross Keys was described:Nancy's Creek furnished power for operating a mill. The place has two churches—Methodist and Baptist—one common school, steam cotton gins. Cotton and wood form the chief exports. About 140 bales of cotton shipped per annum, most of, carried to Atlanta by wagon. Population within a radius of 2 miles, near 400. Mail daily... station one and one-quarter miles distant this place. Atlanta residents began constructing summer cottages in the community around 1900. In 1910, 150 acres on the north side of Peachtree Road were purchased for development as a planned community surrounding a golf course; the nine-hole golf course, designed by Herbert Barker, a golf pro from Garden City, Long Island, opened in 1912. Residences developed in three phases, with Brookhaven Estates designed in 1910, followed by Country Club Estates in 1929 and the Carleton Operating Company in 1936. Independently, Edwin P. Ansley sold lots in the area. Construction of the historic neighborhood was complete by the end of World War II.

The country club became part of the downtown Capital City Club in 1911, its name was changed to the Capital City Country Club. The golf course was expanded from nine to eighteen holes in 1915; the clubhouse, designed by Preston Stevens in the French Provincial style, was completed in 1928. The area was incorporated as the city of North Atlanta in 1924. In 1963, the North Atlanta's leaders asked the state legislature to allow a referendum on a new city charter; the legislature agreed, but included an additional option in the referendum: disincorporation. The majority of voters chose disincorporation, the city's charter was dissolved in 1965. From the 1950s to the 1970s, major commercial and residential development took place in Brookhaven, resulting in the area being built-out by 1980; the Brookhaven/Oglethorpe MARTA Station opened in 1984. In 1986, the Capital City Club and its surrounding estate homes were placed on the National Register of Historic Places, the neighborhood is now known as "Historic Brookhaven."The idea of incorporating Brookhaven as a city was first brought up in 2007, with the purpose of securing local community control over planning, land use, fire protection, parks and recreation—rather than having those issues decided from Decatur.

However, the idea failed to gain momentum. The proposed city would have included 53,000 people. In 2011, the incorporation of Brookhaven was revived when state Rep. Mike Jacobs announced plans to introduce legislation allowing the creation of a city of Brookhaven, over the objections of many residents of the neighborhood of Historic Brookhaven, which would not lie in the proposed city boundaries. On July 31, 2012, 55% of voters chose to incorporate the city of Brookhaven. In December of that same year J. Max Davis was elected as the city's first mayor. Brookhaven is located at 33°52′47″N 84°21′6″W; the city of Brookhaven is bounded by: the Fulton County line on the west I-85 on the south Clairmont Road and the city of Chamblee at Chamblee Dunwoody Road on the east, the city of Dunwoody at I-285 on the north Historic Brookhaven: Historic Brookhaven is the historic residential neighborhood from which the area derives its name. It has homes surrounding the Capital City Country Club, many designed by a number of well-known Atlanta architects of the pre-war period.

The neighborhood boundaries are well defined, it stretches from Peachtree Dunwoody Road on the west, Windsor Parkway to the north, Mabry Drive to the east, Peachtree Road to the south. A majority of the neighborhood technically lies within the extreme northeastern section of the city of Atlanta. Brookhaven Village: Brookhaven Village is the name given to the urban town center that has emerged on Dresden Drive, just east of the Brookhaven MARTA station, anchored by the Village Place and Village Park Place mixed-use developments; the village is bordered by the residential neighborhoods of Ashford Park to the north and Drew Valley to the south, both offering single family homes within walking distance of the village. The village is home to commercial establishments and offices. Lynwood Park: Lynwood Park was an African-American neighborhood of wood and cinderblock homes in the small area north of Windsor Parkway and east of Sandy Springs. In the last decade, residents seeking a new home in a close-in location have built crafstman-style homes, contributing to the overall improvement of the area's infrastructure.

The community is home to a large park, Lynwood Park, which features basketball courts, tennis courts, a swimming pool, a recreation center, a playground and picnic area. Peachtree Road: Pe

Crossflow cylinder head

A crossflow cylinder head is a cylinder head that features the intake and exhaust ports on opposite sides. The gases can be thought to flow across the head; this is in contrast to reverse-flow cylinder head designs. Crossflow heads use overhead valves, but these can be actuated by camshafts that are either in the cylinder block, with actuation by push rods and rockers, or by one or more overhead camshafts. A crossflow head gives better performance than a Reverse-flow cylinder head, but the popular explanation put forward for this — that the gases don't have to change direction and hence are moved into and out of the cylinder more efficiently — is a simplification since there is no continuous flow because of valve opening and closing, but since there is overlap between the intake and exhaust profiles there is a point in which both valves are open. At that point the inertia of the exhaust gases leaving the cylinder helps to aspirate the intake gases into the cylinder; the other main reason for a crossflow's performance is that the ports and valves can be larger and its physical separation of the hot exhaust manifold keeps the air in the intake manifold cooler.

Most modern engines are of a crossflow design. The engineering terminology for these benefits is greater volumetric efficiency. In the UK, "Crossflow" is used to refer to Ford Motor Company's Kent Crossflow 4-cylinder OHV engine, its short-block "Valencia" derivative, used in cars from the 1960s up to the present day, albeit with the addition of fuel injection and a modern engine management system; the term was briefly used in the early 1980s in Australia for the revised 4.1 litre inline six-cylinder engine in Ford's Australian large family car, the Falcon. This was in response to the post-1979 fuel crisis where the Falcon was a comparatively fuel-inefficient car compared to its contemporary rivals; this term is used for engines.

SEK Class Λβ

SEK Class Λβ is a class of 16 2-10-0 steam locomotives, ex-WD Austerity 2-10-0s purchased after the Second World War. All of them were stabled in Egypt and were transported to Greece, as part of the UNRRA mission in Greece, they were given the class letters "Λβ" and numbers 951-966. They were allocated to the Salonika division, but hauled both freight and passenger trains all across Greece, until they were replaced by diesel locomotives until the mid-1970s, being one of the last classes of steam locomotives of SEK to be withdrawn from regular service. A total of eight Greek Austerity 2-10-0s survived the 1984-1985 steam locomotive scrappings, two of which were repatriated to Great Britain. Two continued to work tourist specials out of Drama until the mid-00s whilst the remaining four were left in open storage. Two are thought to have been scrapped in recent times, leaving just four survivors in Greece and the two repatriated examples. * Name or number applied after preservation

Rabbiting

Rabbiting is the sport of hunting rabbits. It involves using ferrets or dogs to track or chase the prey. There are various methods used in capturing the rabbit, including shooting. Depending on where the hunting occurs, there may be licenses required and other rules in regards to methods being used. Most rabbit hunters try to locate rabbit holes, which are found in wooded areas with higher grounds soft enough for the rabbits to burrow in. Hunters without hounds have the following options. A hunter, alone or with a partner, walks through the possible locations of rabbit hiding places, kicking or stomping possible covers to chase the rabbit out. In winter, an advantage is visible rabbit tracks after fresh snow. Unraveling tracks allows the hunter to locate the hiding place: if no tracks lead out of a suspected location the quarry is located. After this, hunters with short range arms may scrutinize the location to find the rabbit and shoot it immobile. Alternatively, one may just as well shoot it while it is on the run.

Ferrets tend to be the primary animal used in rabbiting, due to their ease in moving about burrows. A jill is more used in a hunt than a hob; this is because the hob is more to "lay up" due to it being stronger than the jill. In modern rabbiting, ferrets wear a locator collar, the hunter uses a device that emits a faster clicking noise the closer it is to the ferret's collar; when the ferret lays up, the hunter uses the device to locate the ferret. They will begin digging with a spade to remove it and the trapped rabbit. Hunters can have the ferret chase the rabbit into a net; some hunters now rely on dogs to take the prey, rather than laying down nets. Three or four hunters with shotguns will attempt to shoot the rabbit as it bolts from the burrow while being chased by the ferret; when rabbiting, hunting dogs can be useful in a variety of ways. The use of hounds for hunting can be dated back to ancient Egyptian times; the most common breeds used for rabbit hunting include sight hounds, scent hounds, spaniels and pointers.

Hunting of rabbits involving dogs is called beagling. In the United Kingdom, hunters are allowed to use dogs as long as they don't use more than two and they have the landowner's permission. Spotlighting or lamping can refer to any form of rabbit hunting performed at night with the aid of powerful hand-held, rifle mounted or vehicle mounted search lights; the light is used in conjunction with a dog such as a sighthound, alongside an air rifle, or some other firearm such as a.22LR.17 HMR The rabbit is illuminated by the light and shot, or a dog will chase and capture it. Collies and deerhound are more popular breeds used in spotlighting, but any fast, obedient dog will get the job done. Using a vehicle is a popular method of spotlighting. Pick ups and 4x4 are preferred modes of transport. ATVS are popular vehicles for rabbiting, they provide rapid acceleration making it easy to chase down rabbits. There is a large variety of different traps that are used to capture rabbits and can be divided into categories.

A lot of traps are used for pest control. When hunting for sport, long netting is the most common method of trapping. Many traps are illegal; these traps have a high rate of success and are easy to set up. The springs inside the trap are triggered by the weight of the rabbit, causing them to shorten and the door to shut behind the animal, leaving it safely enclosed. Homemade traps such as these do not have a great success rate, as the effectiveness depends on the trap's quality; the way the traps operate vary, but the rabbit's movement is what triggers them to close. These traps are quite advanced because they are able to capture a large amount of rabbits and automatically reset themselves, they are buried into the ground and have a type of tunnel that lures the animal to a spring loaded trap, which will drop the rabbit into an enclosure once it's triggered by weight. A long net is used to catch rabbits. Long netting was the primary method of catching farmed rabbits in England before they become a major pest.

This method is still used today when ferret or shooting isn't an effective method due to hedgerows or large warrens. There are many different types of nets including the trammel, ditch net, the quick set. It's important to make sure the correct type and length of net is used for the location and that it is set up correctly. Long nets are placed around burrows so that a bolting rabbit will become ensnared, allowing the hunter to dispatch it; the act of scaring rabbits towards the net is called flushing and is done by using hunting animals, ropes, or noise. In medieval times, a hawk or falcon would have been used to catch the rabbit as it exited the warren burrow. For this type of hunt, an albino ferret would be used, allowing the bird-of-prey to more recognize it. While this hunting style is still used in the UK where it remains popular, the methods above have entirely replaced it. Around this time, the popularity of hare coursing sport was growing. Back two greyhounds would be released at the same time in pursuit of the rabbit and the one that kills it is dec
