Antoine Changuion

Antoine Nicolas Ernest Changuion was a Dutch educator, politician, orator and main leader of the Dutch movement in South Africa. His lineage stems from Dutch nobility, with the earliest documented origin of the family being from France where his ancestor, Pierre Changuion, a Huguenot farmer, had his lands and home burned along with his entire village during the Massacre of Vassy. After this event the Changuions still remained in large numbers in France as ministers; the Changuion family emigrated to the Netherlands in 1685. Due to the financial problems of Antoine's parents, Francois Daniel Changuion and Henriëtta Wilhelmina Hartingh they left public life and in 1820 moved to Germany and for the next 30 years lived in Offenbach am Main, where Antoine at an early age came to learn and admire the German language and its literature, he learned French and English teaching both in Frankfurt. He gave lessons in Amsterdam in German and English, while he studied Latin and Greek at the same time. In 1828 as a student in literature and theology at the University of Leiden he began his writing career.

In 1831 he accepted a professorship in classical and modern languages, focusing on Dutch literature, at the South African Athenaeum. At Leiden University, he held the title of Philosophy Theoreticae Master et Litirarum Doctor Humaniorum. At the South African Athenaeum he remained in this position until 1842 when he resigned for various reasons, he was married on 25 September 1832 to daughter of Dr. Abraham Faure and Susanna Smuts. From this marriage he had three daughters. Changuion was a well-educated linguist, an excellent orator and honored by many, he had a healthy and reasonable zeal for the cause of teaching linguistics and languages to Dutch speakers in South Africa and elsewhere in the world. In the educational field he was the first great teacher of his time, he authored and published the first school books in South Africa and was an excellent teacher to children. His patient and warm nature allowed him to achieve great success in educating children specifically. Among other school books, he authored: Geslachtwijzer der Nederduitsche Language Principles der Cijferkunst Elements of English Grammar In his most renowned work, Dutch Language in South Africa, he created the first manual and guide for the Afrikaner language as a stem of Dutch, listing vernacular and peculiarities alike.

It was partly a Dutch guide to all citizens of South Africa. In this book he gave examples of Cape Dutch language features that were unique to the Cape; this "Kaapsche idiom", he described in a separate chapter titled test of Kaapsch idiom. Changuion was far ahead of his time in his new homeland of South Africa, in many ways; however he became lonely, after more than 33 years of tireless efforts, he decided to return to Europe. In 1865 he left the Cape with his sister, his wife, his two daughters, he became a teacher in Aarau. In 1876 he settled in Lausanne, Switzerland and in Lörrach, where he died in 1881. A strong reaction to the test of Kaapsch idiom came from JS de Lima. De Lima was a familiar language activist for Dutch at the Cape. In a brochure titled De Taal der Kapernaren, verdedigd tegen de schandelijke aanranding derzelve van Professor Changuion Lima objected to Changuion's examples of the language used at the Cape. Lima was indignant and wrote that Changuion's examples were flawed and were not representative of the upper classes of South Africa.

African linguists used the Kaapsch idiom test that Changuion used to indicate that English was developing across South Africa

N93 (Netherlands)

National Road 93 or N93, was a highway route in the Netherlands from 1957 through 1985. It connected Tilburg with Emmeloord. A stretch of road between Tilburg and the Belgian border was part of the initial route. In 1957, road numbering was introduced in the Netherlands and the Rijkswegenplan foresaw in an increasing number of highways, together forming a nationwide system. Along with the pan-European E-road network, which designated routes of international importance, a series of N-roads was devised to designate those routes not included in the European system, but considered of national importance. In 1985 the second generation of E-road numbering was implemented, leading to an update of the National Road network as well. With the N91 now heading south to Almere and Utrecht, the N93 was extended northwards; the section leading to the border with Belgium was abandoned and subsequently downgraded. While the N-road numbers were signposted everywhere, they were replaced on road signs by the administrative Rijksweg and provincial numberings, starting in 1976 and 1978 respectively.

The old N93 was broken up into five sections that now carry different numbers. Highway N93 First section: Highway N93 Second section: The total length of the N 93 is 180 kilometers; the majority of the route consisted of motorway, with the main interruption being the section through Nijmegen which caused significant delays. A new bridge is under construction west of the city, aimed at creating a new urban beltway. No official decision has been made public about its new road number so far

Protogine Zone

The Protogine Zone is a geological boundary zone in western Sweden. There are two different definitions of the Protogine Zone. In the lithological definition it forms the limit between the gneisses of western Sweden and the underformed eastern granites; as such it makes up the limit of deformation and metamorphism attributed to the Sveconorwegian orogeny. In the tectonic definition it is a zone of strong deformation that follows the same course as the lithological Protogine Zone. In the two definitions of the Protogine Zone it runs from Scania across Lake Vättern into the upper course of Klarälven and into Norway; the tectonic Protogine Zone has anastomosing branches and splits south of Lake Vättern into various diverging arms. The two westernmost of these arms follow the valleys of the Lagan rivers. A more eastern branch is reflected in the alignment of the lakes Rymmen and Möckeln; the origin of the Protogine Zone has been traced to the Mesoproterozoic when it was a zone of weakness in the crust.

About 1575–1562 Ma ago the Progine Zone was intruded by mafic magma during the same time spans as Rapakivi granites intruded more easterly domains in Fennoscandia. 1224–1215 and ca. 1204 Ma ago the progine zone was subject to extensional tectonics being a back-arc basin. The Protogine Zone obtained its final configuration during the Sveconorwegian orogeny 1130–950 Ma ago
