Leonard Nimoy

Leonard Simon Nimoy was an American actor, film director, author and songwriter. He was known for playing Spock in the Star Trek franchise, a character he portrayed in television and film for fifty years, from a pilot episode shot in late 1964 to his final film performance in 2013. Nimoy began his career in his early twenties, teaching acting classes in Hollywood and making minor film and television appearances through the 1950s, as well as playing the title role in Kid Monk Baroni. Foreshadowing his fame as a semi-alien, he played Narab, one of three Martian invaders, in the 1952 movie serial Zombies of the Stratosphere. From 1959 to 1962 he appeared in four episodes of Wagon Train. In December 1964, he made his first appearance in the rejected Star Trek television pilot "The Cage", went on to play the character of Spock until the end of the production run in early 1969, followed by eight feature films and guest appearances in the various spin-off series; the character earned Nimoy three Emmy Award nominations.

TV Guide named Spock one of the 50 greatest TV characters. After the original Star Trek series, Nimoy starred in Mission: Impossible for two seasons, hosted the documentary series In Search of... made several well-received stage appearances and played psychiatrist Doctor Kibner, the lead on-screen villain, in the 1978 remake of Invasion Of The Body Snatchers. Nimoy's public profile as Spock was so strong that both his autobiographies, I Am Not Spock and I Am Spock, were written from the viewpoint of sharing his existence with the character. In 2015 an asteroid was named 4864 Nimoy in his honor; the documentaries For the Love of Spock and Remembering Leonard Nimoy were produced by his son and daughter respectively. Leonard Simon Nimoy was born on March 26, 1931, in the West End of Boston, Massachusetts, to Jewish immigrants from Iziaslav, Ukraine, his parents left Iziaslav separately, his father first walking over the border into Poland while his mother and grandmother were smuggled out of the Soviet Union in a horse-drawn wagon by hiding under bales of hay.

They reunited after arriving in the United States. His mother, was a homemaker, his father, Max Nimoy, owned a barbershop in the Mattapan section of Boston, he had Melvin. As a child, Nimoy took miscellaneous jobs to supplement his family's income, including selling newspapers and greeting cards, shining shoes, or setting up chairs in theaters, when he got older, selling vacuum cleaners, he began acting at the age of eight in a children's and neighborhood theater. His parents wanted him to attend college and pursue a stable career, or learn to play the accordion, so he could always make a living, but his grandfather encouraged him to do what he wanted to do most, to become an actor. Nimoy realized he had an aptitude for singing, which he developed while a member of his synagogue's choir, his singing during his bar mitzvah at age 13 was so good he was asked to repeat his performance the following week at another synagogue. "He is still the only man I know whose voice was two bar mitzvahs good!" said William Shatner.

His first major role was at 17, as Ralphie in an amateur production of Clifford Odets' Awake and Sing!, which dealt with the struggles of a matriarchal Jewish family similar to his during the Great Depression. "Playing this teenage kid in this Jewish family, so much like mine was amazing," he said. "The same dynamics, the same tensions in the household." The role "lit a passion". "I never wanted to do anything else." Shatner notes that Nimoy worked on local radio shows for children voice acting Bible stories, adding: Obviously, there was something symbolic about that. Many years as Captain Kirk, I would be busy rescuing civilizations in distress on distant planets while Leonard's Mr. Spock would be examining the morality of man– and alienkind. Nimoy took drama classes at Boston College, after moving to Los Angeles, he used $600 he saved from selling vacuum cleaners to enroll at the Pasadena Playhouse. However, he was soon disillusioned and quit after six months, feeling that the acting skills he had acquired from earlier roles were more advanced: "I thought, I have to study here three years in order to do this level of work, I'm doing better work."He became a devotee of method acting concepts derived from the teachings of Konstantin Stanislavsky, realizing the stage allowed him to explore the "psychological and physical territories of life that can't be done anywhere else," inquiries which he said led him into acting in the first place.

He took method actor Marlon Brando as a role model, like him, wore jeans and T-shirts. Between studies, to have some income, he took a job at an ice cream parlor on the Sunset Strip. In 1953, Nimoy enlisted in the United States Army Reserve at Fort McPherson Georgia, serving for 18 months until 1955, leaving as a sergeant. Part of Nimoy's time in the military was spent with the Army Special Services, putting on shows which he wrote and emceed. One of his soldiers was Ken Berry, whom he encouraged to go into acting as a civilian, helped contact agents. During that period, he directed and starred in A Streetcar Named Desire, with the Atlanta Theater Guild. Soon after he was discharged, with his wife Sandi pregnant with their second child, they rented an apartment and Nimoy took a job driving a cab in Los Angeles. Nimoy spent more than a decade receiving only small parts in B movies and the lead in one, along with a minor TV role, he believed that playing the title role in the 1952 film Kid Monk Baron


Nawab spelt Nawaab, Navab, Nabob or Nobab, was a Royal indicating a sovereign ruler of a south asian state, in many ways comparable to the western title of King, the relationship of a Nawab to the Emperor of India has been compared to that of the King of Saxony to the German Emperor. In earlier time the title was ratified and bestowed by the reigning Mughal emperor to semi-autonomous Muslim rulers of subdivisions or princely states in the Indian subcontinent loyal to the Mughal Empire i.e. Nawabs of Bengal; the title is common among muslim rulers of South Asia as an equivalent to the title Maharaja, however it is not exclusive to muslims only. "Nawab" refers to males and means Viceroy. The primary duty of a Nawab was to uphold the sovereignty of the Mughal emperor along with the administration of a certain province; the title of "nawabi" was awarded as a personal distinction by the paramount power, similar to a British peerage, to persons and families who ruled a princely state for various services to the government of British India.

In some cases, the titles were accompanied by jagir grants, either in cash revenues and allowances or land-holdings. During the British Raj, some of the chiefs, or sardars, of large or important tribes were given the title, in addition to traditional titles held by virtue of chieftainship; the term "zamindari " was used for the subahdar or viceroy of a subah or region of the Mughal empire. Nawab is a Hindustani term, used in Urdu, Hindi and many other North-Indian languages, borrowed via Persian from the Arabic honorific plural of naib, or "deputy." In some areas Bengal, the term is pronounced nobab. This variation has entered English and other foreign languages as nabob; the term "Nawaab" is used to refer to any Muslim ruler in north or south India while the term "nizam" is preferred for a senior official—it means "governor of region". The Nizam of Hyderabad had several nawabs under him: Nawabs of Cuddapah, Rajahmundry, Chicacole, et al. "Nizam" was his personal title, awarded by the Mughal Government and based on the term "Nazim" as meaning "senior officer".

"Nazim" is still used for a district collector in many parts of India. The term "nawab" is still technically imprecise, as the title was awarded to Hindus and Sikhs, as well, large zamindars and not to all Muslim rulers. With the decline of that empire, the title, the powers that went with it, became hereditary in the ruling families in the various provinces. Under British rule, nawabs continued to rule various princely states of Awadh, Bahawalpur, Baoni, Bhopal, Jaora, Kurnool, Mamdot, Palanpur, Radhanpur, Malerkotla, Sachin and Tonk. Other former rulers bearing the title, such as the nawabs of Bengal and Oudh, had been dispossessed by the British or others by the time the Mughal dynasty ended in 1857; some princes became Nawab by promotion, e.g. the ruler of Palanpur was "diwan" until 1910 "nawab sahib". Other nawabs were promoted are restyled to another princely style, or to and back, e.g. in Rajgarh a single rawat went by nawab. The style for a nawab's queen is begum. Most of the nawab dynasties were male primogenitures, although several ruling Begums of Bhopal were a notable exception.

Before the incorporation of the Subcontinent into the British Empire, nawabs ruled the kingdoms of Awadh, Bengal and Bhopal. Nawab of Kurwai Nawab of Pataudi Nawab of Savanur Nawab of Surat Padshah-i-Oudh Nawab Wazir of Awadh,also imperial Wazir of all Mughal India, both hereditaryNawabs of Bengal, as Nawabs of Murshidabad Nawab of Marauli Nawab of Patna Nawab of Surat Nawab of Longla All of these states were at some point under the authority of the Nawab of Rohilkhand made the Nawab of Rampur. Most of these states were annexed at the close of the First Rohilla War. Nawab of Badaun Nawab of Moradabad Nawab of Bareilly Nawab of Najibabad Nawab of Philibit Nawab of Farrukhabad Nawab of Bisollee The title nawab was awarded as a personal distinction by the paramount power to a British peerage, to persons and families who never ruled a princely state. For the Muslim elite various Mughal-type titles were introduced, including nawab. Among the noted British creations of this type were Nawab Hashim Ali Khan, Nawab Khwaja Abdul Ghani, Nawab Abdul Latif, Nawab Faizunnesa Choudhurani, Nawab Ali Chowdhury, Nawaab Syed Shamsul Huda, Nawab Sirajul Islam, Nawab Alam yar jung Bahadur, M.

A, Madras, B. A. B. C. L. Barr-At-Law. There were the Nawabs of Dhanbari, Nawabs of Ratanpur, Nawabs of Baroda and such others. Nawab was the rank title—again not an office—of a much lower class of Muslim nobles—in fact retainers—at the court of the Nizam of Hyderabad and Berar State, ranking only above Khan Bahadur and Khan, but under Jang, Mulk and Jah; this style, adding the Persian suffix -zada which means son, etymologically fits a nawbab's sons, but in actual practice various dynasties established other customs. For example, in Bahawalpur only the nawbab's heir apparent used nawabzada before his personal name Khan Abassi Wali Ahad Bahadur (

Vancouver Whitecaps FC U-23

Vancouver Whitecaps FC U-23 known as Whitecaps FC Reserves, was a Canadian soccer team based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Although founded in 2005 as part of the development system for the Vancouver Whitecaps USL First Division franchise, beginning in 2011 they became part of the development system for Major League Soccer's Vancouver Whitecaps FC; the team played in the Premier Development League, the fourth tier of the American Soccer Pyramid, in the Northwest Division of the Western Conference. The team played its home games at Thunderbird Stadium; the team's colours were white. Vancouver Whitecaps FC U-23 began their competitive life as Whitecaps FC Reserves in the Pacific Coast Soccer League in 2005, were competitive; as the official development team of the Vancouver Whitecaps USL First Division club, they had the pick of the local youth soccer talent, this translated to results on the field. They won the North Division title in their freshman season with a 10–2–4 record, finishing three points clear of second place Hibernian & Caledonian.

However, they lost the championship title match against Victoria United, had to be content with second place. Andrew Corrazza was Whitecaps' top scorer; the PCSL reverted to a single-table format in 2006, but the change in structure did not distract the Whitecaps, who took their first league championship title with an 11–2–1 record, finishing four points clear of FK Pacific in second place and Vancouver Thunderbirds in third. The team spent the 2007 season in hiatus, preparing for their PDL debut in 2008. In joining the PDL in 2008, the Whitecaps became the first team to make the PCSL to PDL jump. Vancouver's first season in the PDL was an impressive one, their 4–0 loss to Tacoma Tide at the beginning of June would prove to be costly at the end of the season, but despite this slight stutter the Whitecaps continued to post impressive results. They outclassed local rivals Abbotsford Rangers 4–1, exacted revenge on Tacoma with a 5–1 thumping that included a hat-trick from striker Randy Edwini-Bonsu, put another five past Cascade Surge in early July, knocked off title contenders Yakima Reds 4–1 on the road.

At this point the divisional title looked to be theirs for the taking, but two surprising defeats in their last three league games – 0–3 at Spokane Shadow and 0–1 at Ogden Outlaws in the final game of the season – allowed Tacoma to pip them at the post and take the divisional title on goal difference. Vancouver travelled to Fresno for the Western Conference playoffs, where they faced the San Fernando Valley Quakes in the semi final, who they beat 3–1 in extra time, after scoring an equalizer with the last kick of normal time thanks to Randy Edwini-Bonsu, they comfortably dispatched Tacoma Tide 4–1 to take the Western Conference title with another brace from Edwini-Bonsu, travelled to Ontario to take on Central Conference champions Thunder Bay Chill for a place in the PDL Championship game. The first all-Canadian semi final went the way of the Chill, who scored a last minute winner to take the game 2–1. For the Whitecaps, however, it was a positive debut season in the PDL, the future looks bright.

The prolific Randy Edwini-Bonsu was top scorer for the season, with nine goals, while Gagandeep Dosanjh and Alex Semenets contributed 8 assists each. Having lost many of their best players – including Luca Bellisomo, Randy Edwini-Bonsu, Ethan Gage, Navid Mashinchi, Dever Orgill, Admir Salihovic, Mason Trafford and Simon Thomas – to the senior Whitecaps roster at the end of 2008, the Residency Class of 2009 did not fare as well in the PDL. Despite playing their first six regular season games at home at Simon Fraser University, the Caps could only register two wins, a 2–1 win over fellow Canucks Abbotsford Mariners, an admittedly impressive 6–0 hammering of Spokane Shadow in which Coulton Jackson scored twice; the bad run of form continued when they hit the road, losing four of their five trips around the Pacific Northwest, including a demoralizing 4–0 drubbing at the hands of eventual divisional champions Kitsap Pumas in mid-June. A late rally in July saw the Caps enjoy their only unbeaten streak of the season, a 4-game stand that included a 6–0 battering of the Yakima Reds thanks to goals from senior side loanees Randy Edwini-Bonsu, Dever Orgill and Kenold Versailles.

A 4–0 loss to their local rivals Victoria Highlanders on the last day of the season left the Caps stuck mid-table in sixth place, out of the playoffs and with some re-building to do. Gagandeep Dosanjh was the team's top scorer with 4 goals, while Russell Teibert contributed 3 assists. On November 21, 2014, the Whitecaps announced the formation on the Whitecaps FC 2 United Soccer League team; the U23 team was disbanded and its staff was moved to the new team. This list of notable former players comprises players who went on to play professional soccer after playing for the team in the Premier Development League, or those who played professionally before joining the team.
