Laevistrombus turturella

Laevistrombus turturella is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusc in the family Strombidae. There are only two living species within the genus Laevistrombus. There is some disagreement in the literature as to whether or not this taxon and the similar-looking Laevistrombus canarium are separate species. Man In'T Veld & Turck considered that L. canarium and L. turturella are distinct species, based on the shell morphology and a radula comparison. However, when Cob reviewed a number of Strombus species in 2009, examining both shell characters and anatomical data including details of the genitalia and radula, he concluded that L. turturella was a morphotype, therefore a synonym of L. canarium

Joseph Salzmann

Joseph Salzmann, one of the best-known Roman Catholic pioneer priests in the Northwest Territory of the United States, was the Austrian founder of several Catholic educational institutions, including the prominent Saint Francis de Sales Seminary known as the "Salesianum." He was born at Münzbach in the Diocese of Linz, Upper Austria on August 17, 1819. He was ordained in 1842 and worked in his home diocese until 1847, when an appeal from the visiting first Bishop of Milwaukee, John Martin Henni inspired him to work in foreign missions. After arriving in Milwaukee in October, 1847, he was appointed to a small country mission, but soon his success caused the bishop to make him pastor of St. Mary's congregation at Milwaukee. There, he was opposed by German free-thinkers and he struggled with them; because there was a lack of priests, Salzmann conceived the idea of founding a seminary. To collect funds he went from state to state, after many difficulties, on January 29, 1856, the institution was opened with twenty-five students.

Rev. Michael Heiss, afterwards Archbishop of Milwaukee, was its first rector; the seminary became one of the most prominent in the United States. Several hundred priests and twenty-three bishops graduated from it by 1900. Salzmann was the founder of the first Catholic normal school in the United States and of the Pio Nono College. After years of struggles, the Catholic Normal School of the Holy Family found a solid basis, sending out teachers to parochial schools every year; the American branch of the St. Cecilia Society for the promotion of genuine church music owes its existence and growth to him. Salzmann died at St. Francis, Wisconsin on January 17, 1874, he was praised as having a noble character full of holy enthusiasm for the cause of God and the Catholic Church, fearless in the defense of truth, an eloquent preacher, a warm friend and father of his students, a wise counselor to priests and bishops.

Coming to America

Coming to America is a 1988 American romantic comedy film directed by John Landis and based on a story created by Eddie Murphy, who starred in the lead role. The film co-stars Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, Shari Headley, John Amos; the film was released in the United States on June 29, 1988. Eddie Murphy plays Akeem Joffer, the crown prince of the fictional African nation of Zamunda, who travels to the United States in the hopes of finding a woman he can marry. In 1989, a pilot for a planned spin-off TV show was made, although this was never picked up for a series. A sequel, titled Coming 2 America, is in production. In the wealthy African nation of Zamunda, crown prince Akeem Joffer grows weary of his pampered lifestyle on his 21st birthday and wishes to do more for himself; when his parents, King Jaffe and Queen Aoleon, present him with an arranged bride-to-be, Akeem takes action. Seeking an independent woman who loves him for himself and not his social status and his best friend/personal aide, travel to the New York City borough of Queens and rent a squalid tenement in the neighborhood of Long Island City under the guise of poor foreign students.

Beginning their search for Akeem's bride, they end up being invited by some locals to a rally, raising money for the inner city. During the rally, Akeem encounters Lisa McDowell, who possesses all the qualities he is looking for, upon his insistence he and Semmi get entry-level jobs working at the local fast food restaurant called McDowell's—a McDonald's ripoff—owned by widower Cleo McDowell, Lisa's father. Akeem's attempts to win Lisa's love are complicated by Lisa's lazy and obnoxious boyfriend, Darryl Jenks, whose father owns Soul Glo. After Darryl announces their engagement—without Lisa's consent—to their families, she starts dating Akeem, who claims that he comes from a family of poor goat herders. Meanwhile, although Akeem thrives on hard work and learning how commoners live, Semmi is not comfortable with living in such meager conditions. After a dinner date with Lisa is thwarted when Semmi furnishes their apartment with a jacuzzi and other luxuries, Akeem confiscates his money and donates it to two homeless men.

Semmi wires a telegraph to King Jaffe for more money, prompting the Joffers to travel to Queens and expose his identity as a prince. Cleo disapproving of Akeem as he did not want to see his daughter with a poor man, becomes ecstatic when he discovers that Akeem is an wealthy prince after being introduced to the Joffers; when Akeem discovers that his parents have arrived in the United States, he and Lisa take shelter at the McDowell residence where Cleo welcomes them. After Cleo's bond with Akeem is ruined by Darryl's unexpected arrival, Lisa becomes angry and confused that Akeem lied to her about his identity. Akeem explains that he wanted her to love him for who, not what, he is offering to renounce his throne. Despondent, Akeem resigns himself to the arranged marriage, but as they leave, Jaffe is reprimanded by Aoleon for clinging to outdated traditions instead of thinking of his son's happiness. At the wedding procession, a still-heartbroken Akeem becomes surprised when his veiled bride-to-be is Lisa herself.

Following the ceremony, they ride in a carriage to the cheers of Zamundans. Witnessing such splendor, Lisa is both surprised and touched by the fact that Akeem would have given it up just for her. Akeem offers again to abdicate if she does not want this life. Eddie Murphy as: Prince Akeem, the prince of Zamunda Randy Watson, a soul singer with the fictional band Sexual Chocolate.

Chrysler Atlantic

The Chrysler Atlantic was a retro concept car created by Chrysler. It was first shown in 1995; the Atlantic was inspired by the Bugatti Atlantique. The idea for this car began out as a sketch on a napkin by Chrysler's president Bob Lutz in early 1993 and involved the automaker's chief designer, Tom Gale; the Atlantic has several similarities to the opulent vehicles of the 1930s such as the aforementioned Bugatti Type 57S Atlantique. Its styling is more than a little inspired by the Talbot-Lago T150 SS Coupe, constructed in 1938, such as the shape of the side windows and the curved boot; some of the retro details include a straight-8-engine, constructed from two 4-cylinder Dodge Neon engines with an S configuration 4.0 L., used in modern cars. Other retro touches to the car's look include the interior, replete with Art Deco-style gauges; the Atlantic Concept uses Chrysler's Autostick transmission. Riding on a 128-inch wheelbase, its front wheels measure 21 inches and 22 inches in the rear — large at that time.

It was one of Chrysler's most popular concept vehicles and has proven popular enough to still make the occasional public appearance. The Atlantic's popularity has allowed its overall design and image to be associated as part of both advertising and labeling of packages associated with a variety of automotive car care products and electronics. 1995 Chrysler Atlantic @ ConceptCarz undated, retrieved on April 28, 2008.
