Juan Antonio Samaranch

Juan Antonio Samaranch y Torelló, 1st Marquess of Samaranch was a Spanish sports administrator and minister of sports under the Franco regime who served as the seventh President of the International Olympic Committee from 1980 to 2001. Samaranch served the second-longest term as the head of the IOC, the longest being that of Pierre de Coubertin. Juan Antonio Samaranch was born on 17 July 1920 in Barcelona as the third of six children in a wealthy Catalan family. In 1938, during the Spanish Civil War, he was conscripted to serve as a medical assistant in the Spanish Republican Armed Forces. Samaranch's political sympathies were for the Nationalists, he deserted to Nationalist-held territory by way of France. On 1 December 1955, he married Maria Teresa Salisachs Rowe. With Salisachs Rowe, he had two children: Juan Antonio Junior a member of the International Olympic Committee, Maria Teresa. Samaranch started his studies at the Business School of Barcelona, which he completed in London and the US, obtained a diploma from the Barcelona Higher Institute of Business Studies.

During his studies, he practised roller hockey, for which he created World Championships in 1951 and which the Spanish team won. A member of the Falange in Francoist Spain, Samaranch held various political positions in municipal and national government: he became a city councilor for the city of Barcelona responsible for sport in 1954 Delegate for Physical Education and Sport in the Spanish Parliament in 1967. Samaranch was appointed President of the provincial council of Barcelona in 1973, until he resigned four years when he was appointed Spanish Ambassador to the Soviet Union and Mongolia after the resumption of diplomatic relations between the two countries. Maintaining an active career within the Olympic Movement, Samaranch was elected Vice-President of the International Mediterranean Games Committee for the second edition of the Games in Barcelona in 1955. On several occasions, he was appointed Chef de Mission: for the Winter Games in Cortina d'Ampezzo, the Summer Games in Rome, the Summer Games in Tokyo.

For the Rome and Tokyo Games, he was President of the Spanish delegation. Elected a member of the Spanish Olympic Committee in 1956, he became its President in 1967 until 1970, he was elected as an IOC member in 1966. Two years Avery Brundage appointed him Head of Protocol. A member of the Executive Board, he was IOC Vice-President from 1974 to 1978. Elected to the IOC presidency in the first round of voting on 16 July 1980 at the 83rd Session, he succeeded Lord Killanin on 3 August that year. Samaranch acceded to the IOC presidency during the troubled political period of the Games of the XXII Olympiad in Moscow, he sought to defend the Olympic movement and raise its profile on his numerous trips and meetings with heads of state and sports leaders. In 1981, he obtained for the IOC the status of non-governmental international organisation and became the first IOC President, after Pierre de Coubertin, to establish himself in Lausanne, he was in favour of the integration of women into the Olympic Movement, during the Baden-Baden Congress gained permission for women to become members of the IOC.

At his instigation, the IOC became involved in various initiatives to promote women and sport. Samaranch managed to include both the NOC of the People's Republic of China and that of Chinese Taipei. For sport, he intensified the IOC's support to organise Paralympic Games as from the Winter Games in Sarajevo in 1984, he made doping a priority issue by launching research and control programmes. The creation of the World Anti-Doping Agency in 1999 allowed the IOC Medical Commission to extend its scope of action, he oversaw the end of Olympic amateurism, with full eligibility for all professional athletes being given for the 1992 games. It was under his presidency that the Summer and Winter Games were organised two years apart, instead of in the same year. Among the reforms to the running of the IOC, he imposed a new financial policy which allowed for the increase in revenues and the diversification of resources. Thanks to a large share of the revenues generated by agreements with TV channels, he restructured Olympic Solidarity in 1981 and provided assistance to National Olympic Committees in difficulty, developed action plans to contribute to the universality of the Games.

In 1991 he received the title of Marqués from the King of Spain for his involvement in the Olympic Movement. On 23 June 1993, the inauguration of the Olympic Museum, representing the memory and spirit of modern Olympism, the work of his career, crowned his presidency. On 16 July 2001, he left the seat of the IOC presidency to Jacques Rogge. Samaranch became Honorary Life President of the IOC and was awarded the Gold Olympic Order upon standing down from the presidency; the IOC voted to change the name of the Olympic Museum to the Samaranch Museum. He died on the 21 April 2010 at the age in Barcelona. After participating in the Spanish Civil War, Samaranch studied commerce at IESE Business School in Barcelona, he had a short career as a sports journalist for La Prensa, which ended in his dismissal in 1943 for criticising the supporters of Real Madrid C. F. after that club's 11–1 defeat of FC Barcelona, joined his family's textile business. He joined the board of La Caixa, Spain

FOSD origami

Feature Oriented Programming or Feature Oriented Software Development is a general paradigm for program synthesis in software product lines. Please read the Feature Oriented Programming page that explains how an FOSD model of a domain is a tuple of 0-ary functions and a set of 1-ary functions called features; this page discusses multidimensional generalizations of FOSD models, which are important for compact specifications of complex programs. A fundamental generalization of metamodels is origami; the essential idea is. This involves the use of multiple orthogonal GenVoca models. Example: Let T be a tool model, which has features P, H,D, J. P is a value and the rest are unary-functions. A tool T1 that parses a file written in a Java dialect language and translates it to pure Java is modeled by: T1 = J•P, and a javadoc-like tool T2 parses a file in a Java dialect, harvests comments, translates harvested comments into an HTML page is: T2 = D•H•P. So tools T1 and T2 are among the products of the product line of T.

A language model L describes a family of Java dialects. It includes the features: B, G, S. B is a value, the rest are unary functions. So a dialect of Java L1 that has generics is: L1 = G•B, and a dialect of Java L2 that has language support for state machines is: L2 = S•B. So dialects L1 and L2 are among the products of the product line of L. To describe a javadoc like tool for the dialect of Java with state machines requires two expressions: one that defines the tool functionality for E and its Java dialect: E = D•H•P -- tool equation E = S•B -- language equation Models L and T are orthogonal GenVoca models: one expresses the feature-based structure of the E tool, the other the feature-based structure of its input language. Note that models T and L are abstract in the following sense: the implementation of any feature of T depends on the tool's dialect, the implementation of any feature of L depends on the tool's functionality. So the only way one could implement E is by knowing both L equations.

Let U= be a GenVoca model of n features, W= be a GenVoca model of m features. The relationship between two orthogonal models U and W is a matrix UW, called an Origami matrix, where each row corresponds to a feature in U and each column corresponds to a feature in W. Entry UWij is a function that implements the combination of features Ui and Wj. Note: UW is the tensor product of U and W. U W = U × W = Example. Recall models T= and L=; the Origami matrix TL is: T L = T × L = where PB is a value that implements a parser for Java, PG is a unary-function that extends a Java parser to parse generics, PS is a unary-function that extends a Java parser to parse state machine specifications. HB is a unary-function. HG is a unary-function that implements a harvester of comments on generic code, HS is a unary-function that implements a harvester of comments on state machine specifications, so on. To see how multiple equations are used to synthesize a program, again consider models U and W. A program F is described by one per model.

We can write an equation for F in two different ways: referencing features by name or by their index position, such as: F = U 1 ⋅ U 2 ⋅ U 4 = ∑ i = 1, 2, 4 U i —U expression of F F = W 1 ⋅ W 3 = ∑ j = 1, 3 W i —W expression of F The UW model defines how models U and W are implemented.

East Indonesia Mujahideen

The East Indonesia Mujahideen is a terrorist group operating out of Poso, Sulawesi in Indonesia. The group was led by Abu Wardah until he was killed by Indonesian police on 18 July 2016; the group has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State of the Levant. MIT was proscribed by the United Nations Security Council under the Al-Qaeda Sanctions Committee on 29 September 2015; the US Department of State has designated MIT as a terrorist organisation. MIT has carried out its operations within Sulawesi but has threatened to attack targets across Indonesia; the group's operations have avoided operations that would cause civilian casualties, but was involved in clashes between Muslims and Christians in Maluku province between 1999 and 2002. Turkish passports were used by Uyghurs. ISIS/ISIL aligned Uyghurs have been traveling to Indonesia to participate in terrorist attacks against Shia and the Indonesian government, during a terrorist attack in Central Sulawesi, one Uighur, was killed by Indonesian security personnel in November, another Uighur terrorist, was arrested for plotting a terrorist attack.

China has been contacted by the Indonesian government who sought assistance in confronting Uighur members of terrorist organizations in Indonesia. Indonesia arrested a possible suicide bomber named Ali, a Uyghur, on 24 December 2015. In Sulawesi on Tuesday 15 March 2016 two pro-ISIS Uyghurs in Indonesia were liquidated by Indonesian government forces; the Indonesians used bullets to kill them. The "Doğu Türkistan Bülteni Haber Ajansı" which supports the Turkistan Islamic Party, denounced the Indonesian government and police for their killing of 2 Uyghurs who were members of "Doğu Endonezya Mücahitleri". 2 Uyghurs with suspected terror ties were killed in Sulawesi by Indonesian security forces on 8 April and the killings were condemned by "Doğu Türkistan Bülteni Haber Ajansı". The "Doğu Türkistan Bülteni Haber Ajansı" slammed the Indonesian government for hunting down four Uyghurs who illegally entered the country to join "Doğu Endonezya Mücahitleri" and accused the Indonesian government of attacking Muslims.

A Uighur accused of terror ties was killed in Sulawesi by the Indonesian security forces on 24 April, for which the "Doğu Türkistan Bülteni Haber Ajansı" condemned the Indonesian government. In Poso Uyghurs were being instructed by the head of Mujahideen Indonesia Timur. Faruq Magalasi, Mus'ab, Joko were the names obtained by the Indonesian media of Uyghurs being hunted by the Indonesian police. In Poso four Uyghurs were captured by Indonesian police after they illegally entered Indonesia via Malaysia and Thailand with forged passports. On 18 July 2016, Indonesian forces claimed to have killed MIT leader Santoso. Andika Eka Putra, one of the remaining members of MIT, was killed on 14 September 2016. Sobron was killed by Tinombala Operation's Task Force on 19 September 2016. On 16 May 2017, two MIT militants were killed in a firefight with Indonesian forces in Poso. One Indonesian soldier was injured in the action. In 23 July 2019 the Indonesian Authorities arrested two suspected terrorist with ties with Jamaah Ansharut Daulah and Mujahidin Indonesia Timu in the city of Padang, West Sumatra.

Buba Badjie

Buba Badjie is a Gambian–Swedish veterinarian and entrepreneur born 1967 in the village of Jambanjelli, the Gambia. Badjie was born into a farming community, his parents grew mango and peanuts. He excelled in the village school and got the opportunity to attend an elite school used by the president of Gambia's children, his interest in academia and farming inspired him to become a veterinarian. He looked for scholarships around the world to acquire such a degree, he ended up attending veterinary studies in Kiev. He graduated a few years later. Badjie met his future wife Cecilia; when he arrived in Sweden it turned out he could not work as a veterinarian with a Soviet degree and attended Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, faculty of veterinary medicine in Uppsala, Sweden. After graduating as a veterinarian for the second time, Badjie worked as DVO in the province of Gästrikland as station manager and as the Manager Veterinary Services and Veterinary Technical Manager for Sweden and Finland for Procter & Gamble/ The Iams Company Europe.

While he enjoyed his job with Procter & Gamble his dream was to return to his new home land Sweden and open his own veterinary clinic in Stockholm. Today he operates animal hospital Bromma Djurklinik. Badjie came to national attention in 2000, it was the first production worldwide of the show that has since been produced in many countries under the name Survivor. In 2005 he was the focal point in a documentary called Mitt jobb: Buba – veterinär, the program was produced by The Swedish Educational Broadcasting Company to educate Swedish high school students about being a veterinarian. In 2007, he was featured in ads and became a spokesperson for Fri Företagsamhet promoting entrepreneurship
