SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Kleines Törl

The Kleines Törl is a wind gap at an altitude of 2,102 metres in the eastern part of the Kaisergebirge mountain range in the Austrian federal state of Tyrol. Viewed from the village of Going to the south, it can be distinguished as a notch in the prominent main crest of the Wilder Kaiser. A signposted and frequented climbing trail runs from the Fritz Pflaum Hut into the Griesner Cirque to the north, through the Kleines Törl on the southern side, where the path is known as the Gildensteig, on down to the Gaudeamus Hut or Ackerl Hut; this route is, however exposed and requires sure-footedness, no fear of heights, Alpine experience. Several minutes south of the Törl a second, but not secured, path through the rocks branches off to the 2,253 metres high Regalmspitze, classed at UIAA climbing grade II; the Kleines Törl is a popular destination in spring for ski tours from the Kaiserbach valley

Mega Twins

Mega Twins known as Chiki Chiki Boys in Japan, is a side-scrolling action game released for the arcades by Capcom in 1990. It was the tenth game released for the CP System hardware; the game features two twins who are attempting to re-take control of their land, after a monster unexpectedly attacks, destroying everything in its path. The people of Alurea have lived in peace for a thousand years and have forgotten how to fight, yet the land's only survivors, the twin sons of the king, must take up the challenge and return their kingdom to its former glory; the two twins, aged around 15 at the time the game takes place, venture forth in search of a legendary stone known as "Dragon Blue Eyes", rumoured to be able to put everything back to rights. The game takes the form of a scrolling platform game, with the players controlling the characters of the twins; the game can be played alone, or with two players together controlling one twin each. In addition to moving around, the players can jump and cling on to vertical walls, allowing them to climb to areas that would otherwise be out of reach.

Each player is armed with a magic sword, the main weapon used against the enemies in the game. Magic bombs can be collected as the game progresses, each of which will cause damage to all enemies on the screen when fired. Only a limited number of these bombs can be carried by the players at a time; the blue twin does more damage with his sword, while the red twin can carry more magic spells at a time. Each player has an energy bar, depleted each time contact is made with an enemy or projectile; when the energy reaches zero, the player loses a life. Chests are scattered throughout the game, the majority of which contain coins that add point to the players' scores, but some of them contain power ups and bonuses such as a pill that replenishes the players' energy bars and an enhanced magic sword; the game is made up of nine levels: Round 1 – the earth—consisting of a forest section and a lava-filled cavern. The goddess Callia is encountered at the end of this level. Round 2 – the heavens—at the end, the Shrine of Meius, the god of the heavens, is reached.

Round 3 – under the sea—during which the twins travel through a haunted sunken pirate ship. Round 4, stage 1 – jungle/crystal caverns. Round 4, stage 2 – the underwater foundations. Round 4, stage 3 – the monster castle dungeon. Round 4, stage 4 – into the sky. Round 4, stage 5 – ascent to the top of monster castle. Round 5 – escape to paradise; the player is able to select to start on any of the first three levels, but the remaining levels can only be accessed sequentially. U. S. Gold released ports of Mega Twins for the Atari ST and Commodore Amiga in 1991. Ports for the Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum and Amstrad CPC were advertised, but were never published, though unfinished Spectrum and Amstrad versions have since surfaced on the Internet. A Mega Drive/Genesis port of the game was released by Sega in 1992 and 1993. Developed by Visco Corporation, this port was released in North America and Europe under the game's original Japanese title of Chiki Chiki Boys; this port lacks the 2-player cooperative mode, but is otherwise identical to the arcade version in terms of content and quality.

A PC-Engine Super CD-ROM² port was released in 1994 in Japan by NEC Avenue. This port features enhanced versions of most of the arcade's BGM soundtrack in CD-DA format. Unlike the Genesis port, the PC-Engine Super CD-ROM² version includes multiplayer; the game is included in Capcom Classics Collection: Remixed for the PlayStation Portable, Capcom Classics Collection Volume 2 for PlayStation 2 and Xbox, both released in 2006.

Women's Home Industries

Women's Home Industries was a company founded in 1947 in London to earn export revenue for the UK in the post-war period by harnessing women's craft skills, such as knitting and needlework. Seen as part of the effort to rebuild the economy – and a way to give women practical work they could do from home – between the 1950s and 1970s its reputation as a retailer and supplier of hand-made knits and traditional crafts grew, with exports to match, it appeared in media such as The Times and Vogue, while designer-makers such as Beatrice Bellini became known names in their own right. Kaffe Fassett was among those who supplied crafts for sale in its shops and he collaborated on clothing with Bellini. Women's Home Industries was established in 1947; the key instigator was Stella Isaacs, Marchioness of Reading, who had founded the Women's Voluntary Service in 1938 and became the company's chairman. Its stated aims were to bring in dollars to Britain, it was publicised in its first year of business with an exhibition at Charing Cross tube station.

The idea came about because, as Lady Reading explained it to The Times, there was: "a wealth of talent in this country, unsurpassed anywhere in the world, many who had travelled abroad in recent months felt sure that the products which British women could make in their own homes, using traditional British methods and designs, could be turned to dollar-making purposes". The WVS collected samples from its membership – including tapestry, embroidery and hand knitting – and the response inspired a start-up business supported by the Board of Trade; the company remained under the auspices of the WVS and operated from its HQ at 41 Tothill Street, SW1, but was a limited company. The net of potential suppliers soon widened; the Times reported that only good work would be accepted and payment would be at recognised minimum rates. Those whose standard of work passed muster, would be supplied with a contract and materials designated of'export only' quality; the scheme set out to generate overseas contracts and mass orders – it was suggested that suitable projects might include: "the equipping of a whole cathedral with kneelers".

The initial call for samples requested high-quality knitted garments – for children under five years old – as well as work in petitpoint and grospoint. In October 1947, The Guardian reported that inquiries were "pouring in from every part of the country" and the first order from New York had been accepted. In her capacity as chair, Lady Reading travelled to the US in 1948, she took six tapestry seat covers with her, created by Queen Mary. The seat covers were in a floral design and made of grosgrain. Lady Reading's return on the Queen Elizabeth was reported in The Times, which said that the covers had been sold to Mrs Edward S. Harkness for $10,000. Profits from the sale were donated to the Queen's Institute of District Nursing. Two years Queen Mary once again donated her own work to Women's Home Industries – this time a grospoint carpet she had created over eight years, from 1941, had been created to a traditional 18th-century design. Consisting of 12 panels, it was stitched together by the Royal School of Needlework, which had supplied the design for Queen Mary to work on.

The Times reported that, apart from the section joining, it had been all the Queen's own work – including blending of colours. Subsequently, the carpet was presented by Princess Elizabeth to the National Gallery of Canada, as a gift from the Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire. By the early 1950s, Women's Home Industries was in the swing of production. A sale announcement in The Times in January 1951 described a range of goods, including women's cardigans and bed jackets, men's socks and sweaters and layette clothing for babies; the royal association continued. This order for the US cathedral included communion rail kneelers and bishops' cushions and was to be located in the War Memorial Chapel. By 1958, the association between the WVS and Women's Home Industries had ended, although Lady Reading continued as chair of both; that year, Alison Settle described the company's new "sweater shop" in West Halkin Street, saying: "They design superbly styled jackets and pullovers for men and children...this idea has not caught on here but is vastly popular in America, exports account for the major part of their trade".

Settle described a new sweater elongated into a dress – a novel design first ordered by the store Magnins of California. While this was not to the British taste, the store's woollen party dresses for children were popular with both UK and US buyers; the company took on a far more commercial and fashion conscious approach as the 1960s dawned, although it had a loyal customer base among US visitors to London and supplied several French couture houses. In 1963, the company appointed Foxbridge as its agent to handle the sales to US and Canadian markets. In 1964, Women's Home Industries was part of an export promotion to the US, joining forces with names such as Simpsons, Burberry and Dunhill to send a large shipment of menswear to Bloomingdales and Filene's; this was supported with a ten-page promotional feature on London W1 fashion in Sports Illustrated. Writing in The Guardian, Alison Adburgham said: "There is nothing homely about the hand-knits"

Jesus Walks

"Jesus Walks" is the final single from The College Dropout by American rapper Kanye West. It was released on May 2004 as the fourth single from his debut album The College Dropout; the song contains a sample of "Walk with Me". "Jesus Walks" was acclaimed by music critics, who praised its compelling sonic atmosphere and boldness in its open embrace of faith. It was met by widespread commercial success, peaking at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 and becoming West's fourth consecutive top-twenty hit in the United States. The single was accompanied by three separate music videos, each of which visually interpreted a portion of its multifaceted context in different ways. "Jesus Walks" continues to be a crowd favorite and stands as one of the most-performed songs by West, who has included it within all of his headlining tours. At the 47th Grammy Awards, "Jesus Walks" was awarded the Grammy Award for Best Rap Song. Rolling Stone named the song No. 19 on their list of 100 Best Songs of the 2000s. The song was named the 6th-best song of 2004 on Village Voice's Jop critics poll.

In October 2014, NME placed it at No. 69 on its list "150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years". The song was listed at No. 123 on Pitchfork's 500 songs of the 2000s. It was placed at No. 273 on Rolling Stone's list of "The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time". The song is a spiritual exultation, wherein West discusses how Jesus "walks" with all manner of people, from the sinner to the saint. Towards this end, the first conceptual verse of the song is told through the eyes of a drug dealer contemplating his relationship with God, it took over six months for West to draw inspiration for the second verse. West uses the song to express his critical views on how the media seem to shy away from songs that address matters of faith, while embracing songs discussing violence and illegal drugs, he rhymes, "So here go my single, radio needs this/They say you can rap about anything except for Jesus/That means guns, lies, video tapes/But if I talk about God my record won't get played, huh?" This is directly taken from West's experiences when he was struggling to get signed onto a record label.

They reasoned that he did not conform to the stereotypes associated with mainstream hip-hop and therefore was not marketable. Many of his friends in the music industry warned him that while the song was outstanding, it would never make it to radio. "Jesus Walks" is a mid-tempo hip-hop song. It is set in common time with a moderate tempo of 87 beats per minute and composed in the key of E-flat minor; the song expresses a pulsating rhythm reminiscent to that of a marching band. The rhythm is accompanied by background vocal samples from the ARC Choir's arrangement of the traditional gospel song "Walk With Me" that emit a chant in cadence to the beat; because of these elements, the composition has been described as evoking a militaristic atmosphere. The song begins with a medium tempo followed by its backing vocals and choral arrangement. After West's brief opening dialog, a drumroll sounds and the track's titular hook is belted by the ARC choir and coupled with the chorus. Meanwhile, the song's melody is laced with auto-tune-processed gospel wails.

Over time the song amasses itself, exhibiting multi-tracked violin flourishes and momentary vocal solos growing in intensity before peaking and dissipating. The song repeats this process several times until it fades away at its conclusion; the militant soundscape of "Jesus Walks" is complemented by its lyrical nuances. In the intro, the voice of a drill sergeant initiates the song with an "Order Arms" and is answered by a squad of soldiers who shout "1-2-3-4!" This exchange is followed by West's opening lines, where he declares, "we are at war with ourselves." West retains a considerable amount of dynamics in his rap delivery, as his flow features constant shifts in cadence and volume over the simplistic rhythm. During the chorus, his voice builds in intensity in conjunction with the swelling track, peaks and fades away just before it follows suit, he employs various rhyme schemes and phrasal techniques, at one point using a call-and-response pattern. The single received universal acclaim from critics for its open embracement of faith in the face of the oft-secular music industry, with many expressing their astonishment that such an overtly religious song was embraced by radio.

In a review of The College Dropout, Village Voice characterized the song as a "desperate masterpiece." Stylus Magazine music reviewer Josh Love cited "Jesus Walks" as the best song on the entire album, saying "Kanye makes his spiritual toil sound like triumph thanks to martial drums and a little gospel choir fervor, sounding a clarion call of salvation to all would-be doubters and haters. He swears that he's not trying to'convert atheists into believers,' but listening to The College Dropout might just convince you that Kanye West is the Second City's Second Coming." The Los Angeles Times considered "Jesus Walks" to be the highlight of the album, stating, "Its pulsating drums serve as the perfect backing for West's reflections on his own mistakes as well as hip-hop's tendency to focus on negative subject matter." PopMatters, which hailed "Jesus Walks" as the year's best single, listed the song as one of the primary tracks which exemplified the thoughtfulness and scholastic complexity inherent of The College Dropout as a whole, commenting that, "On'Jesus Walks' Kanye proclaims his devotion to Jesus as as the most devotional hymn singer would, while illustrating the way he falls in and out of what he perceives as the good path to follow.'I wan

East Munster Way

The East Munster Way known as the Munster Way, is a long-distance trail in Ireland. It is 75 kilometres long and begins in Carrick-on-Suir, County Tipperary and ends in Clogheen, County Tipperary, it is completed in three days. It is designated as a National Waymarked Trail by the National Trails Office of the Irish Sports Council and is managed by Tipperary County Council and Waterford County Council; the trail was opened by Frank Fahey, Minister of State for Youth and Sport in July 1988. Starting in Carrick-on-Suir, the East Munster Way follows the banks of the River Suir to the village of Kilsheelan before passing through Gurteen Wood in the foothills of the Comeragh Mountains to reach the town of Clonmel; the Way climbs into the hills to the south of Clonmel before descending to rach the village of Newcastle. From Newcastle, the trail crosses the northern flanks of the Knockmealdown Mountains before descending to reach the Vee Gap before following the road to the end at Clogheen; the East Munster Way forms part of European walking route E8 which runs from Dursey Island in County Cork to Istanbul in Turkey.

The Irish section incorporates the Wicklow Way, the South Leinster Way, the East Munster Way, the Blackwater Way and parts of the Kerry Way and the Beara Way. The East Munster Way connects with the South Leinster Way at Carrick-on-Suir and with the Blackwater Way at Clogheen. A review of the National Waymarked Trails in 2010 found low multiday use of the trail and moderate to high day use of the trail; the report recommended the establishment of a trail management committee and the rerouting of sections on tarred roads where possible.
