List of Marilyns in the British Isles

This is a list of Marilyn hills and mountains in Britain and Ireland by height. Marilyns are defined as peaks with a prominence above 150 metres, regardless of height or any other merit. Thus, Marilyns can range from being mountains, with a height above 600 m or 2,000 ft, to being small hills, with a height just above 150 metres; as of October 2018 there were 2,011 Marilyns. The Marilyn classification was created by Alan Dawson in his 1992 book The Relative Hills of Britain; the name Marilyn was coined by Dawson as a punning contrast to the Munro classification of Scottish mountains above 3,000 feet, but which has no explicit prominence threshold, being homophonous with Monroe. The list of Marilyns was extended to Ireland by Clem Clements. Marilyn was the first of several subsequent British Isles classifications that rely on prominence, including the P600s, the HuMPs, the TuMPs. Topographic prominence is a more difficult to estimate than topographic elevation, requiring surveys of each contour line around a peak, therefore lists using prominence are subject to revision.

Although many of the islands' largest mountains, including Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon, are Marilyns, many other large peaks such as Cairn Gorm, a number of Munros, well-known hills such as Bowfell, the Langdale Pikes and Carnedd Dafydd, are not Marilyns because they do not have sufficient height relative to the surrounding terrain. Not all Marilyns are hills in the usual sense: Crowborough sits in a town, whilst Bishop Wilton Wold lies alongside the A166 road. At the other extreme are Stac Lee and Stac an Armin, the two highest sea stacks in the British Isles, in the St Kilda archipelago, 81 miles west of the Scottish mainland; as of October 2018, there were 2,011 Marilyns in the British Isles, with 1,219 Marilyns in Scotland, including 202 of the 282 Scottish Munros. There were a further 454 Marilyns in Ireland, 175 in England, 158 in Wales, 5 in the Isle of Man. On 13 October 2014 Rob Woodall and Eddie Dealtry became the first people to climb all 1,557 Marilyns in Great Britain; as of July 2018, 10 Marilynists had climbed the 1,557 Marilyns of Great Britain, while 270 had entered the Marilyn Hall of Fame by climbing over 600 Marilyns.

Midnight Movies

Midnight Movies was an indie rock band formed in Los Angeles, California in 2002. Composed of Gena Olivier, Larry Schemel, Jason Hammons, the indie rock trio crafted a moody and stylish sound, they became a major face on the L. A. music scene within a year, earned a nomination for Best New Artist at the L. A. Weekly Music Awards in May 2003. Just as their self-released six-song EP arrived, Midnight Movies received another nomination for Best Pop/Rock band in spring 2004. Midnight Movies' self-titled studio-length debut was released on Emperor Norton the following August; the group resurfaced in 2007 with Lion the Girl, which featured new bassist Ryan Wood and drummer Sandra Vu, with Olivier handling keyboard and vocal duties and production by Steve Fisk. The band's final show was at Spaceland on June 16, 2008 and have since broken up to pursue other projects or to spend time with family; the sound of Midnight Movies conjures a certain Los Angeles - but it's no sun-drenched, glamorized metropolis.

This is a decidedly noir L. A. replete with mystery and yearning. On Lion the Girl, their second full-length release, the band explores haunting new vistas and back alleys of the soul, expanding the reach of their acclaimed "psychedelic pop" with an expanded lineup and more expansive songwriting. Gena Olivier's elegant, beguiling vocals and Larry Schemel's buzzingly urgent guitar lines are, as prominent sonic elements, but two new members, bassist Ryan Wood and drummer Sandra Vu, add to the outfit's musical reach.

Rush Hour Soul (song)

"Rush Hour Soul" is a song by the Britpop band Supergrass. It was the final single from their fourth album Life On Other Planets; the single failed to chart in the US, was outside the Top 75 in the UK upon its release in August 2003, but this was because it was released around ten months after Life On Other Planets. "It's about losing reality and just being off your head," said Danny Goffey. "You could be drugged up or stricken by madness, it's about just needing an escape to get out of that. That's why the verses are quite intense and the chorus is more reflective about the place you'd rather be in."Supergrass themselves are quite fond of the song, describe it as "rapidly becoming a live monster". CD CDR6612 "Rush Hour Soul" "Everytime" "Rush Hour Soul"LTD. ED. Green 7" R6612 "Rush Hour Soul" "Everytime" Director: Dom and NicThe video takes place at night and is filmed in London, near Piccadilly Circus, it consists of Gaz Coombes dressed as a hobo, singing "Rush Hour Soul" angrily at pedestrians in the street, with the aide of a portable microphone and speaker, running around the London underground and dark streets and alleyways.

During the choruses, the film reverts to the band playing the song with rather stern expressions, in a room dimly lit with either coloured or white lights. In this room there are scenes of the band just about to hit one another with their instruments before the film cuts out, on,'clones' of Mick Quinn as he sings part of the song. Just before the middle eight, the tramp is beaten up in an alleyway by two men for walking into their car, refusing to move out of the way; as the middle eight does begin, he looks to the night sky from where he is lying on the floor and sees a huge rotating comet, or asteroid, among the stars. The camera focuses on the comet and zooms out once more to reveal that it is in fact "a comet drifting to the sun" as the song lyrics entail; the video finishes with Supergrass playing "Rush Hour Soul" in the dimly lit room once more finally goes back to Gaz as the homeless person lying on the floor. One of the men from the car is about to launch a kick at him, but the film cuts off before he achieves physical contact.

Mindoro Wind Farm

The Wind Energy Power System is a wind farm project located near Puerto Galera, in the Philippine province of Mindoro Oriental. Once completed the project will generate an estimated 48MW of electricity; the WEPS is located on the island of Mindoro. The project is being developed by Philippine Hybrid Energy Systems, Inc. a joint Philippine and American developer. The first stage of development was approved in June 2011 by Philippine Energy Secretary Jose Almendras; this comes as part of the Philippine Government's ambitious energy policy. On March 7, 2012 in Mindoro, Philippine President Aquino signed the Proposed Luzon Mindoro-Interconnection project with the full support of Cong. Rudy Valencia, Cong. Rey Umali, Governor Alfonso Umali, the Local Government of Mindoro; this agreement will allow for excess electricity to be transported to the nearby island of Luzon, home to the nation's capital and largest city Manila. “Before I end my term in 2016, I want to see Mindoro exporting its surplus power to Luzon,” commented President Benigno Aquino III during a recent signing ceremony.

The project is being developed jointly by Inc.. Italian power utility developer CMC Asia, Inc. and turbine manufacturer and building contractor Gamesa Eolica, S. L. Unipersonal of Spain

Charles Vancouver

Charles Vancouver was an Anglo-American agricultural writer. He was baptised in a Dutch family at King's Lynn, Norfolk in November 1756, was an elder brother of George Vancouver, he learned farming in Norfolk, was found, around 1776, a post in Ireland working for Lord Shelburne by Arthur Young, at Rahan. He worked there on bog drainage, during the 1780s took on related reclamation work in Kentucky. Kentucky was being settled at this time by westward migration, Vancouver had a large holding there. In 1789 Vancouver was trying to establish a settlement on the Big Sandy River, where he had 15,000 acres from 1785; the plan encountered resistance from Native Americans. Vancouver was hoping the intended road from Staunton, Virginia to Lexington, Kentucky would open up the area, he went back east to lay in stores, but he lost financially in schemes of James Wilkinson. The trial settlement, around where Louisa, Kentucky now is, lasted to April 1790. Vancouver returned to Sussex in England. A plan he had for exploring the Nootka Sound via an overland route was intended to be put to Sir Joseph Banks through Thomas Martyn.

On the establishment of the Board of Agriculture in 1793, Vancouver was engaged by Sir John Sinclair to write reports on the state of agriculture in some of the English counties. Maria Josepha Holroyd wrote of him in July 1795 as a sensible well-informed man, who had visited several countries. From the late 1790s Vancouver travelled again, working in the Netherlands and marrying there, in particular, he returned to his American estates, he stated in 1807 that he has been engaged in "cutting down the woodland and clearing the forests in Kentucky". In 1806 he was again in England, Young mentions that he was consulted by Nicholas Vansittart, he died in 1815, in Virginia. Vancouver's first book A general Compendium of Chemical and Natural Philosophy, with a complete System of Commerce, was published at Philadelphia in 1785. In 1786 he was described as "Vancouver of Philadelphia" in Arthur Young's Annals of Agriculture, to which he contributed a glowing account of the farming of Kentucky; the Board of Agriculture published in 1794 an account of Vancouver's tour in Cambridgeshire, in 1795 an account of a similar tour in Essex.

He wrote two more reports for the Board's General View of Agriculture county surveys: on the county Devon,. William Marshall, who criticised most of the board's reports, spoke of Vancouver's Cambridgeshire, though not of the other reports. Vancouver wrote in 1794 a paper on the drainage of the fens of the Great Level, of Cambridgeshire, it remained unprinted for 17 years, appeared as an appendix to the Huntingdon Report.
