LinkedIn filed for an initial public offering in January 2011. The company traded its first shares on May 19, 2011, at $45 per share. Shares of LinkedIn rose as much as 171% on their first day of trade on the New York Stock Exchange and closed at $94.25, more than 109% above IPO price.

BHLHB2

Class E basic helix-loop-helix protein 40 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the BHLHE40 gene. DEC1 encodes a basic helix-loop-helix protein expressed in various tissues. Expression in the chondrocytes is responsive to the addition of Bt2cAMP. Differentiated embryo chondrocyte expressed gene 1 is believed to be involved in the control of cell differentiation.

Nathanael's Church

Nathanael's Church is a Church of Denmark parish church in Holmbladsgade in Amager, Denmark. Nathanael's Parish was disjoined from Sundby Parish in 1899 as a consequence of the rapid growth of the population in the surrounding working-class neighborhood; the church was built at the initiative of the Association for the Construction of Small Churches in Copenhagen, founded by three young women in 1885. As was the case with the other churches built by the association, it was handed over to the Copenhagen Church Foundation on its completion, which took care of its operation; the foundation stone for the new church had been set on 14 June and it was consecrated on 19 March 1899. The church was designed by Thorvald Jørgensen, who would also design a number of other churches in Copenhagen as well as the current Christiansborg Palace, built in 1915 after its predecessor was destroyed in a fire. Oriented south-north, the church is designed in a Neo-Romanesque style, it is built in red brick on a plinth of granite from Bornholm.

The main entrance is in the south gable. The Tympanum is now decorated with a glass mosaic created by William Fridericia in 1986, it depicts Nathanael's meeting with Jesus as described in John 1–35. There are nine tall, rounded windows, arranged in groups of three, with the middle ones somewhat taller than the others, on both sides of the church building; the bell tower is at the south-west corner of the building. The openings of the bell chamber is divided into three by two columns supporting rounded arches; the nave has a barrel-vaulted ceiling with moulded ornamentation. There are galleries along its west sides. Official website

St. Kazimierz Church

St. Kazimierz Church is a Roman Catholic church in Warsaw's New Town at Rynek Nowego Miasta 2. St. Casimir Church was the Kotowski Palace, residence of the Wyszogród stolnik, Adam Kotowski. In 1688 it was purchased by Queen Maria Kazimiera Sobieska to be transformed into a church to serve the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration of the Most Holy Sacrament, whom she had brought to Poland. In 1688-92 the Kotowski residence was transformed into a church-cum-cloister, to a design by the leading Polish-Dutch architect Tylman Gamerski; as with many of the buildings that were reconstructed after the Deluge, Tylman designed the church in Palladian style. Between 1718 and 1721 the trompe-l'œil altars of St. Casimir and Virgin Mary were sponsored by Michał Kazimierz Radziwiłł, voivode of Vilnius. In 1718 the church furnishing was completed with a profuse late baroque pulpit in the shape of a flower and between 1745 and 1748 with a rococo organ; the significant additions in the second half of the 18th century were tombstones of the members of the Sobieski family - Maria Karolina Sobieska de Bouillon and Maria Józefa Sobieska.

In 1769, the former 17th century tabernacle was replaced with a new marble one decorated with silver. During the Kościuszko Uprising the nuns donated some of the church equipment to the army - 12 silver candlesticks from Augsburg, 5 gilded reliquaries, 52 precious votives and 4 statues of angels from the main altar - 412 silver grzywnas worth. In World War II, during the Warsaw Uprising, like nearby St. Hyacinth's Church, St. Kazimierz was used as a hospital; the nuns housed many civilians in the church and cellars and gave medical aid as well as they could. In August 1944 they decided to suspend their rules to assist wounded insurgents; because of this decision the German military targeted the cloister for heavy bombing. During a single raid on August 31, 1944, four priests, 35 nuns and over a thousand civilians sheltering in the church's crypt were killed. Sobieska's magnificent church and cloisters was destroyed; the church was reconstructed in 1947-53. Designed by Tylman Gamerski, the church consists of a large dome atop a basic Greek cross design.

The facade is baroque, although the interior is modern, because few of the original furnishings of the church were preserved. Inside, the most valuable element of the original church's decoration are the preserved fragments of a brilliant tomb monument of Maria Karolina Sobieska de Bouillon carved by Lorenzo Mattielli in white and black marble in 1746; the effigy of the founder in an oval frame was placed atop the plinth with the Janina coat of arms and a royal crown. The whole composition was completed with carved statues of the personification of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth and a putto, while the arcade above was adorned with skulls; the tombstone was reconstructed in 1961 by Antoni Szymanowski.
