Jean Roberti

Jean Roberti was a Jesuit from Flanders who became known for his part in a medical and scientific controversy. He was a theological writer, he was studied in Jesuit colleges at Liège and Cologne. He entered the Society of Jesus in 1592, held teaching posts, was awarded a D. D. at Mainz. He became rector of the college at Paderborn, died at Namur. Remacle Roberti, an official and adviser in the Spanish Netherlands, was his brother. In 1609 Roberti wrote a reply, his Brevis anatome, to a 1608 work of Rudolph Goclenius on medical astrology from a Paracelsian perspective, that had mentioned a weapon salve. Roberti objected to the efficacy of the weapon salve being attributed to purely natural causes, he called the explanation of Goclenius necromantic, a confusion of natural magic with other kinds. Goclenius replied by listing 45 kinds of "evil magic", 24 effects, achieved by a magus, could not be explained by natural causes. A pamphlet war continued; the attacks of Roberti had some effects: van Helmont went through an examination by the Inquisition, some sideblows against the Rosicrucians he made in 1618 were picked up in 1623 by Marin Mersenne and Jean Boucher.

Mysticae Ezechielis quadrigae was a work on the four Gospels. Roberti edited the Flores epytaphii sanctorum of Theofried of Epternach, Legend of St. Hubert, other works of hagiography. WorldCat page Online Books page BBKL page

Vivienne Elanta

Vivienne Heloise Elanta was a Western Australian environmental activist. Born in Germany, Elanta was the eldest of Gertraud Robert Neuman's five children, she had just six years of schooling. At an early age she moved with her family to Monrovia, where her parents managed a rubber plantation, there was no schooling available until she was nine, she was thirteen when they moved to Johannesburg, South Africa, for eight years, from the age of 15 she worked without pay on her parents' farms - including one in northern New South Wales, where her family emigrated in 1972. She raised her daughter, for the first five years as a single parent. Vivienne Elanta did more than 20 personal development courses, her partner John Croft, commented, "I found it amazing the way she transformed herself from being a victim and coming to see her difficult childhood as something that equipped her to have special insight into the lives of people less fortunate than herself." Elanta had a keen interest in environmental causes and discovered the deep ecology work of Joanna Macy and John Seed, which gives priority to the biosphere in the use of resources.

"She didn't feel. Her purpose was to make people aware of our part in something much older and deeper than themselves". In 1986 with her partner John Croft she co-founded the Gaia Foundation of Australia, inspired by the Gaia hypothesis of James Lovelock and Lynn Margulis, this became Elanta's vehicle for non violent activism, its goals were personal growth, strengthening the service to the Earth. It has conducted over 600 projects. Elanta initiated a program that reintroduced to Victoria Park, a suburb of Perth, Western Australia, two species of frog that had not been recorded there for 50 years, ran a street verge revegetation project, she became involved in direct action, running workshops to train fellow activists and joining forest protest camps in the south west region, as a part of the campaign to prevent the clearfelling of old-growth native forests. When the State Government decided to allow mineral mining in National Parks, she and a group of others carried out a symbolic exploration for minerals in the Bunbury offices of Cable Sands.

They were charged. In a campaign to try to stop bushland from being cleared at Hepburn Heights, in Perth's northern suburbs, she dressed as a kangaroo to attract media attention and squatted in a tree platform, she was scooped up and thrown to the ground by a bulldozer, which she climbed on while it was in motion. She was part of a group, arrested and charged after lying down in front of a train to stop it being loaded with woodchips, in Manjimup. "Her family had done nothing about it. Vivienne said at the time that she couldn't stand by and see the trains loaded with woodchips destroying the external lungs of the planet in the name of so-called progress"In 1985, Elanta was involved in helping establish the Greens Western Australia, in the western and northern suburbs, she stood for the State Legislative Assembly Seat of Marmion in 1993. Following Elanta's death, Greens MLC Chrissy Sharp paid tribute to her in the Western Australian Legislative Council, she said, "The way Vivienne lived her life inspired many people.

She had an absolute feeling for mother earth. She had a most extraordinary garden, abundant in vegetables and frogs. Everything that she touched grew. In fact, the first time that I met Vivienne was about 20 years ago when she visited my farm with a famous Australian forest activist by the name of John Seed, travelling around the State giving a series of meetings. While the meeting was taking place at my farm, Vivienne was out in my garden; that is just one example of the sort of person that she was and how she was living with an awareness of the needs of the people around her and of the earth around her." One of Elanta's biggest undertakings was helping to organise the Pilgrimage Project in 1997. Thirty people, including two from Chernobyl, scene of the 1986 nuclear disaster, travelled by bus around Australia to draw attention to Australia's role in the nuclear industry. In the ABC program, "The Spirit of Things", just after the S11 tragedy, Elanta said "55-day pilgrimage on a bus visiting Aboriginal communities who are custodians of the particular lands on which uranium mines are, or are pegged for uranium mining, our work there was much of a spiritual nature as well as a political, to bring both together, that the land is sacred, that this is as much a spiritual as a political issue.

And so we brought all that knowledge from the Aboriginal elders back to Canberra, where our sisters shared that with the politicians, that it is important to leave the uranium in the ground, that land is sacred and we need to honour that.". At the time of her death, on the 16 August 2004 she was doing a Murdoch University degree course in "Gaia philosophy and environmental ethics"; that year she won the Vice Chancellor's Award for Academic Excellence. From her deathbed, Elanta suggested that cancer is a breakdown in the communication between the cancerous tissue and the body of the person carrying the illness, it draws attention to the similarity between cancer and our present condition, suggests that cancers "come as messengers, to come home to our bodies and come home to the Earth". In the adjournment speech of the Western Australian Parliament, Dr Christine Sharpe quoted one of Elanta's poems and added, "Members can see that this was a remarkable and wise woman whom we will all miss greatly."About 250 fr

Jubilee Clock Tower, Weymouth

The Jubilee Clock Tower is a free-standing clock tower on the Esplanade of Weymouth, England. It was built and erected in 1888 to commemorate the Golden jubilee of Queen Victoria and became Grade II Listed in 1974. Historic England described the clock as being a "florid but characteristic enrichment to the sea-front" and "boldy coloured", it is set on a Portland stone base. Weymouth's Jubilee Clock Tower was built to commemorate Queen Victoria's 50 years of reign in 1887; the tower was paid for by public subscription, with £100 having been collected during celebrations on Her Majesty's Jubilee day of 21 June 1887. The Jubilee Committee approached the council with the idea for the clock tower, accepted; as fundraising did not reach enough to provide the clock itself, Sir Henry Edwards donated one, while the gas company agreed to keep the clock illuminated for free in perpetuity. Weymouth Corporation provided the stone base; the clock tower was unveiled on 31 October 1888. Erected on Weymouth's esplanade, it was set in front of the esplanade and jutted out onto the sands of Weymouth Beach.

In the 1920s, the clock was set back from the beach as the esplanade was extended around it to protect the beach from the encroachment of shingle from the eastern end. The clock tower was painted in bright colours during the same decade
