Kinder Scout

Kinder Scout is a moorland plateau and National Nature Reserve in the Dark Peak of the Derbyshire Peak District in England. Part of the moor, at 636 metres above sea level, is the highest point in the Peak District, the highest point in Derbyshire, the highest point in the East Midlands. In excellent weather conditions the city of Manchester and the Greater Manchester conurbation can be seen, as well as Winter Hill near Bolton, the mountains of Snowdonia in North Wales. To the north across the Snake Pass lie the high moors of Bleaklow and Black Hill, which are of similar elevation. Kinder Scout featured on the BBC television programme Seven Natural Wonders as one of the wonders of the Midlands, though it is considered by many to be in Northern England, lying between the cities of Manchester and Sheffield; the history and meaning of the name have been studied by Broderick. In chronostratigraphy, the British sub-stage of the Carboniferous period, the'Kinderscoutian' derives its name from Kinder Scout.

Kinder Scout is accessible from the villages of Edale in the High Peak of Derbyshire. It is the moors to the north; this has resulted in the erosion of the underlying peat, prompting work by Derbyshire County Council and the Peak District National Park to repair it, in conjunction with the landowner, the National Trust. The plateau was the location of the mass trespass in 1932. From the National Park's inception, a large area of the high moorland north of Edale was designated as'Open Country'. In 2003, the "right to roam" on uncultivated land was enshrined into law, this area of open country has been extended. Parts of the Kinder Scout plateau are still closed for conservation, public safety, grouse shooting or fire prevention reasons, but prior notice is given on the Peak District National Park Authority's website. Kinder Downfall is the tallest waterfall in the Peak District, with a 30-metre fall, it lies on the River Kinder, where it flows west over one of the gritstone cliffs on the plateau edge.

The waterfall was known as Kinder Scut, it is from this that the plateau derives its name. Although little more than a trickle in summer, in spate conditions it is impressive. In certain wind conditions, the water is blown back on itself, the resulting cloud of spray can be seen from several miles away. In cold winters the waterfall freezes providing local mountaineers with an icy challenge that can be climbed with ice axes and crampons. Below the Downfall the River Kinder flows into Kinder Reservoir; some of Kinder's many gritstone cliffs were featured in the first rock-climbing guide to the Peak District, Some Gritstone Climbs, published in 1913 and written by John Laycock. The Edale Cross lies south of Kinder Scout, under Kinder Low and on the former Hayfield to Edale road, it marks the former junction of the three wards of the Forest of Peak: Glossop and Longdendale and Campagna. The first cross on the site may have been set up by the Abbots of Basingwerk Abbey to mark the southern boundary of their land, granted in 1157.

The date of the current cross is unknown, although an adjoining plaque and its listing as a Scheduled Monument date it to the mediaeval period. At some point it fell down, was re-erected in 1810, when the date and initials JG, WD, GH, JH and JS were carved into it; these stand for John Gee, William Drinkwater and Joseph Hadfield and John Shirt, local farmers of the day who raised the cross. Mermaid's Pool, a small pool below Kinder Downfall, is said to be inhabited by a mermaid who will grant immortality upon whoever sees her on Easter Eve. A bowl barrow, thought to be unexcavated and to date from the Bronze Age, stands on Kinder Low, a western projection of the main massif above Hayfield. Major English and Welsh peaks visible from Kinder Scout include Winter Hill, Pendle Hill, Whernside, Pen-y-ghent, Fountains Fell, Buckden Pike, Great Whernside, Margery Hill, the Weaver Hills, Axe Edge, The Roaches, Shining Tor, the Long Mynd, Corndon Hill, Cilfaesty Hill, Moel y Golfa, Cadair Berwyn, Beeston Castle, Alderley Edge, Arenig Fawr, Moel Famau, Glyder Fach, Tryfan, Y Garn, Carnedd Llewelyn and Foel-fras.

The orchestral sketch Kinder Scout was composed by Patrick Hadley, written for the Buxton Spa Orchestra and its occasional director George Cathie. It was first performed in Buxton on September 1923. Hadley had an emotional attachment to the Derbyshire peaks, which are celebrated in his cantata The Hills. Pennines Rambling Kinder Scout Computer-generated summit panoramas.

In 2013, 100% of CCSC 10th graders scored advanced or proficient on the ELA MCAS. In 2012, 100% of 10th graders at CCSC scored advanced or proficient on both the math and English MCAS tests, earning the school a #1 ranking statewide. In 2011, CCSC was 1 of 14 charter schools in the U. S. to be awarded an EPIC grant for attaining the highest gains in student achievement. Enrollment is by lottery; each year, CCSC holds public, blind lotteries to fill available seats in the 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th grades.

While a portion of the seats are reserved for students living in Cambridge, the CCSC student body includes students from Boston and many other towns in the Greater Boston area. The school was scheduled to open in fall of 2005 with grades 7 and 8, it was to receive 180 students, with 150 being from Cambridge. Paula Evans, a former headmaster of the Cambridge Rindge & Latin School, co-founded the school with Emma Stellman a physics teacher from Cambridge Rindge & Latin, Rob Riordan, a co-founder of High Tech High and former faculty member at Cambridge Rindge & Latin; the school had a controversial start. Before it was granted a charter from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, the Cambridge Public Schools superintendent and members of the school committee of the Cambridge Public Schools asked Evans to halt her project. Nancy Walser, a board member of CPS at the time, said that some members of the charter school board had resigned by February 2004, that opponents to the charter school passed information along but never pressured people.

In August 2005 Evans said that the school had received 440 applications. Most of the students were from Cambridge while other students were from Boston and other communities in Greater Boston. Of the students, 40-50 % were to participate in the school's reduced lunch program. Community Charter School of Cambridge provides a rigorous academic program designed to close the achievement gap and to prepare all students to succeed in college and beyond; the school’s small size and low student-faculty ratio ensure that every student is well known to and supported by a dedicated and skilled corps of teachers and administrators. All students have a faculty advisor whom they meet with in long blocks twice a week; the CCSC academic program is demanding, students are held to high standards for both academics and behavior.

Lyubo, bratsy, lyubo

"Lyubo, lyubo" is a Russian and Cossack traditional song. Its name derived from the first row of the refrain: Lyubo, lyubo, bratsy, zhit’, that means "it is lovely to live, brothers"; the song became popular after the release of the Soviet film Alexander Parkhomenko where it was performed by Boris Chirkov. The Cossacks led 40,000 horses to the Terek River. After the bloody battle, one bank of the Terek is covered by the dead animals; the fatally wounded hero remembers about his wife, his mother, his steed. Feeling sorrow for the two latter, he mourns his fate; the phrase "Lyubo, zhit’" appeared in a soldier song published in Biblioteka Dlya Chteniya, 1837. According to several authors, the song is dedicated to the events of the Russian Civil War. Other sources mention it as a piece of Cossack folklore; the song became popular after the release of the Soviet film Alexander Parkhomenko where it was performed by Boris Chirkov. In 1942 – 1943, a tankers adaptation was created, based on the Chirkov's version.

The song was popularized by such well-known Russian and Soviet artists as the Kuban Cossack Choir, Zhanna Bichevskaya, etc. Pavlov, Sergey. "Translation of the song". Archived from the original on 2018-03-09. Retrieved 2018-03-09. Lyubo, lyubo by Kuban Cossack Choir on YouTube
