Kemble, Gloucestershire

Kemble is a village and civil parish in the Cotswold District of Gloucestershire, England. Part of Wiltshire, it lies 4 miles from Cirencester and is the settlement closest to Thames Head, the source of the River Thames. At the 2011 census it had a population of 1,036; the village lies in Thames Head electoral ward, which stretches from Kemble in the south to Frampton Mansell in the north-west. The population of the ward as recorded in the 2011 census was 1,955. Kemble was the site of Anglo-Saxon cemetery; the village church today has a Norman door and a tower dating from 1250, to which a spire was added in 1450. The full restoration in 1872 included bringing here brick by brick the chapel of ease at nearby Ewen, to form a new south transept. Kemble Church is part of the Thameshead benefice, covering the congregations of Kemble, Poole Keynes, Somerford Keynes, Shorncote; the benefice since 2001 includes Coates, Sapperton and Frampton Mansell. Cotswold Airport on the edge of the village hosted the RAF Red Arrows aerobatic display team from 1966 until 1983.

After the Red Arrows moved to RAF Scampton, the station was used by the US Air Force as a maintenance facility. The airfield is used by light industry, by flying clubs and by private aircraft owners, for events including two annual air displays, for scrapping and storage of airliners. Delta Jets rebuild and fly historic jet aircraft Hawker Hunters; the Bristol Aero collection had a museum at the airfield until 31 May 2012. Aston Down airfield, 3 miles to the north-west belonged to the RAF but is now used for gliding by the Cotswold Gliding Club. Kemble railway station is on the Golden Valley Line, served by eastbound Great Western Railway trains to Swindon and London Paddington, westbound services to Gloucester and Cheltenham Spa. Kemble was once an important railway junction; the branch lines from Cirencester and Tetbury were dismantled in the 1960s. Kemble Primary School has around 100 pupils; the pub, The Tavern, is next to the station. There is a combined post office and local store.

Stephen Spiro

Stephen Spiro was a political activist known for his opposition against the Vietnam War and his advocacy of a consistent life ethic. Opposing the Vietnam war based on the theory of Just War, he objected to being conscripted, but as the law only allowed for conscientious objection to all wars, he was convicted of avoiding conscription and given a suspended sentence of five years, he was pardoned by President Gerald Ford. Born in the Bronx, Spiro attended Xavier High School in Manhattan, he attended the University of Chicago and received bachelor's and master's degrees in economics from Fairleigh Dickinson University. While at the University of Chicago, his studies in economics and politics led him to become suspicious of government in all its forms, he joined the Student Peace Union and studied Catholic peace traditions becoming active in the Catholic Worker movement. He described himself as a "Biblical anarchist and a radical pacifist." Spiro opposed the Vietnam War as not conforming to the Catholic theory of just war.

As the conscription laws in the United States allowed for conscientious objection only on the grounds of opposition to all war, Spiro was labeled a "selective conscientious objector" and was convicted of avoiding the draft. His case was championed by the newly formed Catholic Peace Fellowship; the sincerity of his beliefs were recognized, as he received a five-year suspended sentence for his actions, he was pardoned by President Gerald Ford. He was "more proud of the conviction than the pardon" and throughout his life he referred to himself as a "political criminal." Spiro opposed the Gulf War and the Iraq War. In the last years of his life, he was the President of the New Jersey Catholic Peace Fellowship and he engaged in counter-recruitment, setting up information tables in front of military recruiting offices in New Jersey. Spiro was active in the Right to Life movement, he attended the March for Life and met with legislators. He advocated a consistent life ethic known as the seamless garment argument.

This argument states that the right to life leads to opposition to abortion, capital punishment and war as a single consistent moral position. He would bring anti-war signs to pro-life rallies, sparking arguments with his fellow protesters

Cavitation (embryology)

Cavitation is the formation of cavities, which are spaces or openings in the body. This process occurs in mammalian embryos and can occur on in developed organisms. During mammalian embryo development, cavitation is a routine process. Cavitation is a crucial process in the development of mammalian embryos. After fertilization, rapid cell division occurs which results in the formation of the morula, or a solid ball of cells; the morula is the precursor structure to the blastula, an animal embryo in the early stages of development. The morula consists of a cluster of internal cells covered by a layer of external cells; the internal cells become the inner cellular mass. The external cells are destined to become a structure called the trophoblast, a layer of tissue on the inside of the embryo that provides it with nourishment; the trophoblast cells become extraembryonic structures necessary for development. After the initial formation of the morula, it does not have cavity. Cavitation occurs to create a cavity on the inside of the morula.

This process occurs when trophoblast cells, in other words the outside covering of the blastocyst, secretes fluid into the morula creating the blastocoel, the fluid filled cavity of the blastula. The formation of the blastocoel is a critical stage in the formation of the blastocyst, a blastula where some cellular differentiation has occurred
