Candace Flynn

Candace Gertrude Flynn is a main character of the Disney Channel animated television series Phineas and Ferb, voiced by Ashley Tisdale and created and designed by Dan Povenmire. She first appeared in the series' pilot episode along with the other main characters who star in the A-Plot. Candace is part of a blended family, a decision made after an experience Swampy Marsh had in his childhood. In the series, she has two younger brothers, Phineas Flynn and Ferb Fletcher, with Phineas being a biological brother and Ferb a step-brother, she is the pair's sister. Her best friend is Stacy Hirano. Candace speaks in a valley girl accent when conversing with Stacy, her birthday is on July 11. Unbeknownst to her and the other family members, their pet platypus, Perry, is an espionage secret agent who fights Dr. Doofenshmirtz, an evil genius, she is unaware that his battle with Dr. Doofenshmirtz is the cause of many Phineas and Ferb's inventions' disappearances. In "Phineas and Ferb's Quantum Boogaloo", it is shown that she will have three children in the future: Xavier and Amanda.

In "Great Balls of Water" it is revealed that she plays 20 different instruments that start with "B". Povenmire described the character: "Candace does get frustrated", she thinks. It's not,'I'm going to get those guys and ruin their lives.' She does bust them in the season, but there are a couple of twists to it." Her personality was based on Jennifer Grey's character in Ferris Bueller's Day Off and the actress had portrayed Doofenshmirtz's professor in "Oil on Candace." All characters in Phineas and Ferb were drawn in a design borrowed from Tex Avery's style, with geometric shapes being included in their structure. Candace's catchphrases follow, "Mom! Phineas and Ferb are..." and "You are so busted!" One of the show's running gags revolves around Candace's character. An antagonist, Candace has been noted to hold an obsession over tattletaling the creations of Phineas and Ferb, referred to in the series as "busting." While she fails in proving the extravagances to her mother, Candace has remained persistent in the majority of episodes.

Whenever Candace carries her mother to the project site and Ferb's work unintentionally disappears or is hidden before their mother sees it. Candace stutters and sometimes, her mother forcibly takes her away, disregarding Candace's actions as crazy and childish. In some episodes, Candace brings evidence to her mother. Due to Candace never being able to prove Phineas and Ferb's antic's to her mother, some viewers came to the assumption that Candace has schizophrenia, why Phineas and Ferb's inventions always disappear right before she shows her mom; some thought this explained why no other character in the storyline seemed surprised or worried by the two brother's inventions, but this statement was proven untrue by the show's story writers. While the main reason Candace is motivated to succeed in busting her brothers is described in "Rollercoaster" as proving superiority over them, one reason to bust them is shown in Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Across the 2nd Dimension, when she tells "the force that stops her from busting her brothers" to stop so she can protect them from themselves.

The so-called "force" is Candace's developed superstition for the miraculous disappearance of Phineas and Ferb's projects as she attempts to show them to their mother. A third reason is implied in the song "Busted" sung by Candace and Vanessa, to prove she was always right—and not crazy, as her mother seems to believe. In "Phineas and Ferb's Quantum Boogaloo," it is revealed that if she did bust her brothers, it would result in the complete ban of creativity, thus leading to Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz, as whom she is, in her attempts to bust them as evil, achieving his goal of taking over the Tri-State Area, unless she manages to bust them when it would not matter. Another running gag in the series is that Candace, while shown as a reasonably attractive girl, is not at all photogenic. Pictures and videos of her are flattering, showing her in an awkward pose or embarrassing expression—leading to her fear that Jeremy will see them. For her, it seems that the more unflattering the picture, the more public exposure it gets.

Candace has a leitmotif: a frenzied rendition of the child's taunting song Nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah. It was mentioned in "Let's Take a Quiz", she is allergic to wild parsnips. She is friends with Vanessa Doofenshmirtz, the daughter of Perry's nemesis, Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz, has been to his lair on a number of occasions but is still unaware of where Perry goes everyday, whereas Vanessa, who knows Perry is unaware of the fact that Candace is part of Perry's host family, their friendship is because both attempt to prove something about a family member to their mothers, but fail every time. When not trying to bust Phineas and Ferb, Candace is doing something related to Jeremy Johnson, her boyfriend, she over complicates things in their relationships and worries that Jeremy but she is insecure doesn't like her when in truth he is alwa

QClash

The QClash is the name given to the Australian rules football rivalry match between the Brisbane Lions and Gold Coast Suns, who both participate in the Australian Football League. The first QClash was held with Gold Coast winning by 8 points; the game established the highest pay TV audience for an AFL game, with a total of 354,745 viewers watching the game. The QClash was promoted by the league, the clubs and the football media as a name for the game, in similar terms to the other local derbies that exist in the AFL, such as the Western Derby and Showdown. "We wanted a name that embodied Queensland, one, unique and simple. We wanted to reflect the big scale of the matches. Speaking to the coaches and players, there is no doubt that both teams want to win whenever we come together, the QClash will be a real battle for state pride." - Brisbane Lions CEO Malcolm Holmes. The medal for the player adjudged, it is named after former footballer Marcus Ashcroft, who played junior football on the Gold Coast for Southport and 318 VFL/AFL games for the Brisbane Bears/Brisbane Lions between 1989 and 2003.

He joined Gold Coast's coaching staff and was the first Queenslander to play 300 VFL/AFL games. Lion Dayne Beams has won the medal the most by any player; the trophy awarded to the winner of the game is known as the "QClash Trophy". The trophy is a "traditional style" looking silver cup with a plaque; the plaque's inscription reads from left to right, "Brisbane Lions AFC", "QCLASH", "Gold Coast Suns FC". The first edition of the QClash took place on 7 May 2011 at the Gabba; the Suns were required to host the inaugural meeting between the two teams at the Gabba as their home ground, Carrara Stadium, was unavailable until that year. Despite the Lions not having won a game for the season leading into the game, they were considered strong favourites to defeat their Gold Coast neighbours; the Suns had recorded their first AFL win two weeks prior to the clash while Brisbane was winless leading into the first Queensland derby. Brisbane's triple premiership player Simon Black labeled former Lions Jared Brennan and Michael Rischitelli "mercenaries" in the lead up to the game because they had joined the Suns in the off season.

Two days before the game it was revealed that 10 Queenslanders had been chosen to compete in the clash. The Suns got off to a hot start in the first quarter and led the clash by 19 points at first exchange of ends; the Gold Coast held that lead through the first three quarters and the tension rose early in the third term when Gold Coast's David Swallow unintentionally knocked Brisbane's Andrew Raines unconscious, taken off with concussion. Trailing by 19 points at the beginning of the fourth quarter, the Lions mounted a comeback off the back of six second half goals from Ashley McGrath, swung forward at half time. A Todd Banfield goal at the 15-minute mark in the fourth term equaled the scores late in the game but a spectacular pack mark taken by Gold Coast forward Nathan Krakouer a minute stemmed the tide as he kicked for his fifth goal to give the Suns a one-goal lead. McGrath's sixth goal just seconds again equaled the scores once again; the Gold Coast were awarded a controversial free kick for a high tackle a minute which allowed small forward Brandon Matera to play on and kick the Suns to a seven-point lead that they wouldn't relinquish.

The Suns claim the inaugural QClash 18.16 to 17.14. Former Lion and new Sun Jared Brennan was awarded the inaugural Marcus Ashcroft Medal for his best on ground performance that included 30 disposals and 14 clearances. QClash 11 took place on 16 April 2016 at the Gabba; the Suns had compiled an undefeated 3-0 record leading into the game and were sitting equal top of the ladder while the Lions were winless sitting on the bottom of the ladder. The two teams traded goals for much of the first half as the Suns led by 2 points at the end of the first term and 8 points at half time; the biggest talking point of the night took place a minute before half time when Gold Coast defender Steven May elected to bump Brisbane ruckman Stefan Martin under his chin. Martin was motionless for several minutes after the incident. May was a repeat offender as he had bumped Lion Tom Rockliff unconscious in QClash 9. Spurred on by what had occurred just prior to half time, the Lions gained the lead in the third quarter and ran out 13-point winners at full time.

The Marcus Ashcroft Medal was awarded to Irishman Pearce Hanley for his sublime 28-disposal, 2-goal performance. In the week following the match, May was referred straight to the tribunal where he received a five-match suspension. QClash 15 took place on 22 April 2018 at the Gabba. Both Queensland clubs had suffered embarrassing losses the week prior to the 15th local derby and were keen to prove a point in the round 5 clash; the Suns went about building a healthy lead in the first half and led the contest by 14 points at the major break. Gold Coast led the clash by as many as 27 points in the third quarter before Brisbane began fighting back. In the midst of a goalscoring frenzy from Brisbane, North Queenslander Charlie Cameron produced one of the goals of the year with a three effort run of play that involved a gather, a handball, a recovery, a tackle break, a fend off and a spinning snap goal. By the halfway point of the fourth quarter, Gold Coast's lead had been reduced to just four points.

Despite Brisbane's relentless pressure in the last eight minutes of the game, the Suns were able to hold on for a five-point victory. Touk Miller was awarded the Marcus Ashcroft Medal for his shutdown role on Brisbane vice captain Dayne Zorko. However

We Come from the Same Place

We Come from the Same Place is the third and final studio album by indie band Allo Darlin'. It was released by Fortuna Pop! Records on 6 October 2014 in the UK and by Slumberland Records on 7 October 2014 in the US, it received positive reviews, with critics noting the songwriting of Elizabeth Morris and the vocals and guitar work of Paul Rains. We Come from the Same Place is the third album by London-based Anglo-Australian indie band Allo Darlin', it is the first recording from the band since singer Elizabeth Morris moved to Florence, whilst the rest of the band members remained in London. Morris moved. While the band logistics were affected by the move, it did not cause any real issues. "It's doable, for me, the difference in my quality of life and how much I'm enjoying life is so worth it", Morris said. Around the same time, Morris released Optimism, a solo four track EP recorded with help from English singer-songwriter and guitarist Darren Hayman. In 2013, the band rehearsed the songs for the album during a tour of small venues in London.

"We had the idea that it would be great to road-test the new songs before we put them to tape," Morris announced. The album was recorded live that same summer at Soup Studios in London, with minimal overdubs; the production resulted in a grittier sound than previous albums by the band. Simon Trought, who produced their debut album Allo Darlin', returned to produce this album. We Come from the Same Place was released on vinyl and CD, as well as via digital download, with liner notes written by Darren Hayman. On the Metacritic website, which aggregates reviews from critics and assigns a normalised rating out of 100, We Come from the Same Place received a score of 75, based on 3 mixed and 9 positive reviews. Helen Clarke of musicOMH called the album the band's best release to date, describing it as a "polished" mixture of the previous two albums, with "a healthy dose of upbeat, indie disco tracks...alongside the more introspective, woozy songs that dominated Europe". Music critic Jamieson Cox of Pitchfork found the strengths of the album in Morris' songwriting and storytelling, the band's no-nonsense arrangements, pointing to the song "Angela" as one of the highlights of the album.

However, Cox criticised the album when it "slips away from real emotional impact into more cloying and saccharine territory", such as in the songs "Bright Eyes" and "Heartbeat". Writing for Exclaim!, Melody Lau expressed approval of Morris' songwriting and detailed lyrics that keep the interest of the audience. Zac Coe in CMJ commends Morris' work as a lyricist, pointing to the song "Crickets in the Rain" as one of the best examples of her work on the album. Critic Philip Cosores of Consequence of Sound argues that "History Lessons" and "We Come from the Same Place" are two of the best tracks on the album. "History Lessons", according to Cosores, is one of the best songs Morris has written up to this point: a "spare, beautiful masterpiece". Sophie Weiner of Rolling Stone pointed to "History Lessons" as the highlight track of the album, while she found the album "pleasant" overall, she felt it was too steeped in nostalgia, leaving it "unmemorable". In a review for AllMusic, Tim Sendra notes the vocals of guitarist Paul Rains on "Bright Eyes" and his overall contributions as a guitarist.

Matthew Slaughter of Drowned in Sound praised the guitar work of Paul Rains on tracks like "Heartbeat" and "Another Year". In a glowing review of the album for PopMatters, John Paul notes that the band has grown musically and lyrically, that the recording demonstrates a more assertive group, willing to take risks. All songs written by Allo Darlin' "Heartbeat" – 3:30 "Kings and Queens" – 2:57 "We Come from the Same Place" – 4:37 "Angela" – 3:24 "Bright Eyes" – 3:22 "History Lessons" – 4:05 "Half Heart Necklace" – 3:02 "Romance and Adventure" – 2:51 "Crickets in the Rain" – 3:40 "Santa Maria Novella" – 3:59 "Another Year" – 4:26 Elizabeth Morris – vocals, guitar Paul Rains – vocals, lapsteel Bill Botting – vocals, bass guitar, acoustic guitar Mike Collinsdrums, percussion

Garraun (Galway)

Garraun at 598 metres, is the 224th–highest peak in Ireland on the Arderin scale, while it is just short of the elevation threshold of 600-metres for other classifications, it does have the prominence to be a Marilyn. Garraun lies on an isloated massif near the mouth of Killary Harbour at the far north sector of the Twelve Bens/Garraun Complex Special Area of Conservation in the Connemara National Park in Galway; the southern slopes are a scenic backdrop to Kylemore Lough. Irish academic Paul Tempan notes that Garraun is a name of Irish origin, either from Irish: garrán, meaning "grove", or more from Irish: géarán, meaning "fang". Tim Robinson notes that Irish: Maolchnoc, meaning "bald hill", is the more common name in the area. Tempan notes that the townland on the south slopes of Garraun South Top, that runs to Kylemore Lough, is called "Lemnaheltia", this name appears on Mercator's map of Ireland as Dosleape for the mountain. A legend tells of Fionn Mac Cumhail's dog Bran, who pursued a doe in this area, when the doe leapt from the summit, Bran fell from the cliff into the lake.

Many Irish places claim variations of this story, including "Lough Brin" south of the MacGillycuddy Reeks, in Kerry. Garraun is a flat featureless summit that lies on its own isolated massif close to the entrance to Killary Harbour, Ireland largest fjord, is part of the Twelve Bens/Garraun Complex special area of conservation in Connemara. To the west of Garraun, via a high ridge, is the subsidiary peak of Garraun South Top 556 metres, which overlooks Kylemore Lough, whose prominence of 31 metres qualifies it as an Arderin. Further west, is the sharp summit of Garraun South-West Top 549 metres, whose prominence of 21 metres qualifies it as an Arderin Beg. Garraun South-West Top is marked "Altnagaighera", on some maps. Altnagaighera is noted for its conglomerate Tors. Further southwest again, lies the double-top summit of Doughruagh 526 metres, which directly overlooks Kylemore Abbey, whose prominence of 211 metres qualifies it as an Arderin, a Marilyn. Half-way up the south face of Doughraugh, on steep ground, is a statue of the Sacred Heart, erected in 1932 by the Benedictine nuns of Kylemore Abbey, in thanks for their safe delivery from their previous home in Ypres in Belgium, which they had to abandon during World War One.

East of Garraun is a long sharp spur. To the north of Garraun is Benchoona 585 metres, whose prominence of 31 metres qualifies it as an Arderin. Benchoona has a subsidiary peak, Benchoona East Top 581 metres, whose prominence of 15 metres qualifies it as an Arderin Beg. Robert Macfarlane described Benchoona's summit as "a rough broken tableland of flat rocks a quarter of an acre in area, planed smooth by the old ice". Garraun has two satellite peaks. To the east, across Lough Fee, is the isolated peak of Letterettrin 333 metres, called Irish: Binn Mhór, whose prominence of 268 metres qualifies it as a Marilyn. To the west is Currywongaun 273 metres; the most straightforward route to climb Gaurran is via its sharp east spur at Lough Fee. Another recommended trail is the 9-kilometre 4-hour Lettergesh Loop or Benchoona Horseshoe, that starts from Lettergesh Beach in the car-park at Carrickglass, taking the path to Cloonagh, climbing a loop around Benchoona and Garraun South-West Top before returning via Cloonagh.

Various other 8-10 kilometre 4-5 hour routes, take in the summit of Doughruagh, the shores of Kylemore Lough and Pollacappul Lough, in a loop with Garraun and Altnagaighera.
