Villers-Perwin

Villers-Perwin is a village in the municipality Les Bons Villers, in the province of Hainaut in the Walloon region of Belgium. Villers-Perwin was a municipality on its own until the Fusion of the communes in Belgium in 1977 when it became a part of the municipality of Les Bons Villers. Villers-Perwin has been a part of the Duchy of Brabant for 1000 years and is now located in the province of Hainaut; the first lords of the village were the Villers-Perwin passed successively to the de Walhain, the de Berghes and the de Ligne. Albert de Ligne sold the seigniory in 1618 to Gérard de Villers, counselor of Archduke Albert and Isabelle. In 1670 it became property of Christophe Hannosset and receiver general of the province of Brabant; the last lords were the Castro y Toledo and the de Renette that built the Chapelle Saint-Hubert in 1760 for the protector of the hunters, celebrated on 3 November and the Chapelle Saint-Jacques in that same year for the protector of the travellers, celebrated on 25 July.

The village is known for the Battle of Fleurus fought on its territory with more than 1500 casualties. This little village possessed a brewery. Only a few enterprises were present: a construction atelier, a woodwork assembly firm and a factory of chicory that lasted until just after World War II. Today it is a residential village with more than 1300 inhabitants. A section of the Roman road between Bavay and Cologne crossing the road between Villers-Perwin and Mellet; the Church St-Martin, built in 1872, with some artistical treasures, the painting "Adoration des mages" from Simon de Ruys de la Haye from the 17th century and a Christ and gothic cross from the 16th century. L'arbre de la Bruyère, the highest point of the region with the view of the 15 bell towers; the castle owned by a Dumont de Chassart built in the 18th, 19th century. The name Villers is from the word villae, means farm, building; the name Villari means outbuilding from the villa and is used across Gaule. It is therefore believed that the village was a part of a villa in Roman times, now the actual village.

Different origins are possible for the word Perwin. It is believed. However, in old French, the P was sometimes replaced by a B, Perwin would be Berwin, Ber means bear, which could be referring to the presence of bears in the region when it was covered with forests. Ber means baron, which would be the adviser of the sovereign. Win could be originated from the word wez; the conclusion would be a pond where bears came for water. A second possibility for the origin of the word is from Latin, when the village was called Villers-le-Perwin, Villers-le-Pewyn or Villers-le-Perwez. Perwin would be derived from the word pervium coming itself from per viam meaning near the road; the well-known violinist Arthur Grumiaux was born in Villers-Perwin in one of the houses of the Place Commandant Bultot

List of Worldcons

This World Science Fiction Convention list includes prior and scheduled Worldcons. The data is maintained by a World Science Fiction Society sub-committee. Notes: Name – a convention is listed by the least confusing version of its name; this is the name preferred by the convention, but fannish tradition is followed in retroactively numbering the first Worldcon in a series 1. Guests of honor – custom in designating guests of honor has varied with some conventions giving specific titles and some call them all guests of honor. Specific labels have been used. Size – where available, this column records two numbers: how many paying members attended the Worldcon and how many total members there were; the available data is incomplete and imprecise and many of these numbers are substantially in error. No Worldcons were held between 1942 and 1945 due to World War II. Official Worldcon long list

Killik River

The Killik River is a 105-mile tributary of the Colville River in the U. S. state of Alaska. It begins in the northern portion of Gates of the Arctic National Park and flows north onto property of the Arctic Slope Regional Corporation; the river's headwaters are near Survey Pass in the Endicott Mountains on the north slope of the central Brooks Range, the river mouth is south of Angoyakvik Pass. The direction of the headwaters stream is northwest at first sharply northeast before April and Easter creeks enter from the right north of the North Slope Borough boundary; the river continues northeast for much of its course until it turns northwest again on the lower reaches after receiving the Okokmilaga River from the right. Major tributaries of the Killik are Easter creeks, as well as the Okokmilaga. North of Easter Creek, tributary streams, such as Aniakvik Creek and Nigaktukvik Creek, flow predominantly through short, narrow, V-shaped valleys; the main stem flows down a U-shaped glacial valley containing lakes, sand dunes, lateral moraines, alpine tundra.

This valley, about 2 miles wide widens to between 3 and 5 miles on the lower reaches, the river becomes braided. Copious stretches of dwarf birch, sedges, with large expanses of sedge bogs and tussocks dominate the tundra; the Killik is fed by precipitation and snow melt, hence its waters are clear of the sediment that characterizes glacial streams.
