Barbara Daly Baekeland

Barbara Daly Baekeland was a wealthy American socialite, murdered by her son, Antony "Tony" Baekeland. She was the ex-wife of Brooks Baekeland, the grandson of Leo Baekeland, inventor of Bakelite plastic, she was murdered at her London home when her son Antony stabbed her with a kitchen knife, killing her instantly. Antony was found at the scene of the crime, confessed to and was charged with her murder. Barbara was raised in Boston. In January 1933, when Barbara was aged 11, her father, committed suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning from the exhaust of his car in the garage. After the life insurance payment had been collected and her mother moved to New York City, taking up residence in the Delmonico Hotel; as a young woman living in New York City, Barbara became a prominent socialite. She was one of New York's ten most beautiful girls, gaining her regular modeling contracts with Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, her social status and beauty resulted in frequent invitations to high society parties, allowing her to date various wealthy admirers.

She suffered mental health problems like her mother, was a private patient of psychiatrist Foster Kennedy. An invitation to Hollywood for a screen test with the actor Dana Andrews did not lead to film stardom, but did lead to a friendship with fellow aspiring actress Cornelia "Dickie" Baekeland, she introduced Barbara to her younger brother Brooks, a trainee pilot with the Royal Canadian Air Force. After Barbara falsely told Brooks Baekeland that she was pregnant, the couple married in California. At the time of the marriage, Barbara listed her profession as painter, while Brooks listed his as writer. After the marriage the couple set up home in a luxury apartment in the Upper East Side of New York, where they held extravagant dinner parties for their friends, who included Greta Garbo, Tennessee Williams, William Styron, Yasmin Aga Khan. Over time, Barbara became well-known to many for her unstable personality, rude outbursts, bouts of severe depression, she drank and both she and her husband participated in extramarital affairs.

Barbara gave birth to a son, Antony Baekeland, in August 1946. From the summer of 1954 onward, with Antony aged eight, the Baekeland family led a nomadic seasonal existence, maintaining their home in New York while being based in Europe. Renting houses and villas in London, Zermatt, Cap d'Antibes, many parts of Italy and Brooks continued to live extravagantly, entertain guests, have affairs. From 1960 onward, the family's main base was an apartment in Paris, where during one party, Brooks met an English diplomat's daughter, 15 years his junior. After Brooks requested a divorce and Barbara subsequently tried to commit suicide, Brooks terminated the affair. In 1967, at which time the family was based in both Switzerland and the Spanish resort of Cadaques, the 20-year-old Antony met Jake Cooper, a bisexual Australian man. Cooper introduced Antony to various hallucinogenic drugs. Antony and Cooper began an affair; when Mrs. Baekeland was informed of this by her friend Barbara Curteis, she traveled by car to Spain to bring her son back to Switzerland.

However, at the French border, Antony was found not to have his passport. After the ensuing fracas, both Antony and Barbara were placed in jail. Returning to Spain, Barbara accepted the extent of her son's relationship with Cooper, but preferred his developing relationship with a young Spanish girl, Sylvie. However, Sylvie started an affair with Barbara's husband Brooks. After discovering the affair in February 1968, Barbara again tried to commit suicide. Brooks decided that again, pursued a divorce; this led Barbara to severe depression and another suicide attempt, from which her friend Gloria Jones, wife of author James Jones, saved her. Brooks had one child, he divorced and married Susan Baekeland. In 1969, Barbara met; when introduced to her son Antony, Green was unimpressed by his artistic capabilities. After six weeks, Green broke off the relationship, she pursued Green relentlessly. Barbara Baekeland had a complex and incestuous relationship with her son, Antony Baekeland, gay or bisexual. Baekeland attempted to "fix" her son by hiring prostitutes to have sex with him.

After this failed, while the pair were living in Majorca in the summer of 1968 following Barbara and Brooks's divorce, Barbara was alleged to have raped her son. During his young adulthood, Antony displayed regular signs of schizophrenia with paranoid tendencies, his erratic behavior caused concern among family friends, he was diagnosed with schizophrenia. Over the years and his mother had several violent arguments involving knives. In late July 1972, Antony tried to throw his mother under the traffic outside her penthouse on Cadogan Square in Chelsea, London, she was only saved by his physical weakness, the intervention of her friend Susan Guinness. Although the Metropolitan Police arrested Antony for attempted murder, Barbara refused to press charges. Antony was subsequently admitted to The Priory private psychiatric hospital, but was released soon afterwards. Antony undertook sessions with a psychiatrist while living at home; the do

Nieuport 14

The Nieuport 14 was a military reconnaissance sesquiplane produced in France during the First World War. The French Army deployed it in 1916 but the type was withdrawn from front-line service. Developed in response to an order by the Aéronautique Militaire in the summer of 1915, it was to have been a two-seat reconnaissance machine capable of making a flight of 180 km and back while carrying a load of bombs. Nieuport's design started with the Nieuport 12 reconnaissance aircraft, but had its fuselage stretched to balance out the single nose mounted Hispano-Suiza V-8 engine and its wingspan increased by the addition of an additional bay. Protracted development that saw some refinement in the engine installation and the wing area increased from 28 m2 square meters to 30 m2 resulted in it entering service only in mid 1916. Further development, with a larger engine and a further enlarged and airframe would result in the Nieuport 15. Three additional unrelated airframes that some sources have connected to the Nieuport 14 were built, all featuring a nose radiator, single bay wings and a deep hunchback fuselage.

One had large wing cut-outs to improve visibility and was fitted with a 180 hp Lorraine-Dietrich 8A engine, another with a 150 hp Hispano-Suiza engine, a third with a 220 hp Hispano-Suiza engine and a crescent-shaped wing. With its failure as a combat aircraft, a dedicated trainer variant was developed, the Nieuport 14 École with dual controls, nosewheels to guard against nose-over accidents, an 80 hp Le Rhone 9C rotary engine in the place of the original V-8, it is possible. When further refined, the trainer version was redesignated the Nieuport 82 E.2 and would be nicknamed Grosse Julie. Deliveries to reconnaissance squadrons commenced in late 1916, replacing obsolete Voisin III and V types. However, changing priorities resulted in production being curtailed as the Hispano-Suiza engines were needed for SPAD VII fighters, several units including Escadrille 102 and 103 that had planned on operating the Nieuport 14 became fighter units instead, operating the Nieuport 17. With production halted prematurely, the remaining machines were relegated to training duties and as unit hacks once improvements had been made to their side-mounted Hazet radiators, the source of some problems.

While the Nieuport 14 only saw service in France, the Nieuport 82 served more widely. Aside from flight schools in France, Brazil operated 9 Nieuport 82s from 1919 to 1924, Japan operated a small number, with at least one acquiring the civil registration J-TOXC; the first Native American and African-American female aviator Bessie Coleman did some of her training in a Nieuport 82 in France. Nieuport 14 A.2 - service designation of prototype reconnaissance aircraft with 140 hp engine. Nieuport 14bis A.2 - designation of production reconnaissance aircraft with 175 hp engine. Nieuport 14 E.2 - initial service designation of trainer. Nieuport 82 E.2 - purpose-built trainer version with 80 hp rotary engine.

The Windmills of Your Mind (album)

The Windmills of Your Mind is an album by Paul Motian released on the German Winter & Winter label in 2011. The album was Motian's final release prior to his death in late 2011; the Allmusic review by Thom Jurek awarded the album 4 stars, stating, "The Windmills of Your Mind is a collection of jazz and pop standards played by a stellar quartet ". The Guardian's John Fordham noted, "Motian enlists Bill Frisell on guitar and Thomas Morgan on bass to turn the usual glides and smooches of these songs into a lurching, spontaneously contrapuntal undertow, in which the rhythm lies as much in what's not being played as what is". All About Jazz correspondent Dan Bilawsky commented, "Motian's prolific output makes it easy to overlook some of his albums, but this one is to gain a lot of attention; the Windmills Of Your Mind is sublime". JazzTimes's Colin Fleming called the album "a set of pop standards with the deep, well-rounded luxuriousness of modern chamber music, with elements of high-romance; this is jazz as seduction music".

New evangelization

The new evangelization is the particular process by which baptized members of the Catholic Church express the general Christian call to evangelization. According to Pope Francis in Evangelii gaudium in 2013: "the XIII Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops gathered from 7–28 October 2012 to discuss the theme: The New Evangelization for the Transmission of the Christian Faith; the Synod reaffirmed that the new evangelization is a summons addressed to all and that it is carried out in three principal settings". The three settings were: 1) ordinary pastoral ministry, 2) outreach to "the baptized whose lives do not reflect the demands of Baptism" and 3) evangelization to those who do not know Jesus Christ or who have always rejected him. Relative to the second setting, one emphasis has been re-evangelizing of Christians who have fallen away from the faith. According to the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, "in a special way, the New Evangelization is focused on're-proposing' the Gospel to those who have experienced a crisis of faith."

There has been a special focus on Europe and the Americas, areas which have traditionally been Catholic but which have been influenced by secularization. In the first sentence of its Constitution on the Church, Lumen gentium, the Second Vatican Council affirmed that Christ had sent the Church to preach the gospel to every creature. Evangelism is a theme in multiple Vatican II documents; these documents mentioned “gospel” 157 times, “evangelize” 18 times, “evangelization” 31 times. For several decades, the magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church has been promoting a theme of New Evangelization; this includes re-evangelism of Christian people as well as mission Ad gentes to reach new regions and cultures. The birthplace of the new evangelization was Nowa Huta near Kraków in Poland where strenuous efforts for many years were made during communist rule to establish church land and a cross and church building in a new town where there was none.. Speaking at Mogila Abbey near Nowa Huta in 1979, Pope John Paul II said: "From the Cross of Nowa Huta began the new evangelization" The first papal use of the term new evangelization was by Pope Paul VI in his 1975 apostolic exhortation, Evangelii nuntiandi, which itself built upon documents from the Second Vatican Council including Lumen gentium, Ad gentes, Gaudium et spes, Dignitatis humanae.

The term was popularized by Pope John Paul II who used it during an address to the Latin American bishops in Port-au-Prince, Haiti on May 9, 1983. He declared that the fifth centenary of the first evangelization of the Americas should mark the beginning of a new era of evangelization, "evangelization will gain its full energy if it is a commitment, not to re-evangelize but to a New Evangelization, new in its ardor and expression". Pope John Paul II expounded on the idea including his encyclical, Redemptoris missio, a Magna Carta of the new evangelization, his apostolic letter, Tertio millennio adveniente, issued for the Great Jubilee of the year 2000 and his apostolic exhortation, Novo millennio ineunte. In Redemptoris missio, he wrote: I sense that the moment has come to commit all of the Church's energies to a new evangelization and to the mission ad gentes. No believer in Christ, no institution of the Church can avoid this supreme duty: to proclaim Christ to all peoples. In 2010, Pope Benedict XVI established the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization.

When he called for a Year of Faith from 2012 to 2013 on the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council, he opened it with a general assembly of the Synod of Bishops on The New Evangelization for the Transmission of the Christian Faith. On June 29, 2013, Pope Francis released a related apostolic exhortation Evangelii gaudium on "the church's primary mission of evangelization in the modern world". In its opening paragraph, Pope Francis urged the entire Church "to embark on a new chapter of evangelism"; as of April 2019, Pope Francis was reported to be planning a reorganization of the Curia that will make evangelization its principal focus. A final draft of his apostolic constitution on the Roman Curia, titled Praedicate Evangelium, has been submitted for comment to national bishops’ conferences and a variety of other bodies. Since Pope John Paul II, the cultural sector was seen as one of the many priorities of the new evangelization. In recent years, the Catholic Church promoted her artistic heritage in several countries as a pastoral opportunity for the new evangelization in Europe..

In 2005, the Augustine Institute in Denver was established to train lay Catholics for the new evangelization. In 2011, Saint John's Seminary in Boston established a Theological Institute for the New Evangelization, which offers a Master's of Theological Studies for the New Evangelization. Despite being located at a seminary, the program is designed for laity and professed religious..

John Scandrett Harford

John Scandrett Harford, FRS was a British banker and abolitionist. Harford was born the son of John Scandrett Harford, a prominent banker in the English city of Bristol and educated at Christ College, Cambridge. By the end of the 18th century he was a wealthy banker in his own right and known as being a landowner, a staunch Quaker and an abolitionist. Harford had a sizeable portfolio, including the Blaise Castle Estate at Henbury; this was property of Thomas Farr, but Farr went bankrupt in 1778 following the American Revolutionary War. The estate changed hands a number of times until Harford's father purchased the land and buildings. John Harford the Elder had a plain but substantial house built and asked the landscape architect Humphry Repton to lay out the grounds. Repton became a partner of John Nash, whom Harford commissioned to design a group of cottages, Blaise Hamlet, as homes for his retired servants. Nash created sketches of the cottages. Diamond Cottage is an example of the picturesque style of the cottages.

John Harford. In 1819, he acquired the Peterwell estate at Lampeter, making the purchase jointly with his younger brothers, it was owned by his father-in-law, Richard Hart Davis, who had built c.1812 a house within its bounds. The estate descended to his nephew John Battersby Harford, who remodelled the house in the Italianate style in 1859 as Falcondale, it was shortly after a meeting with Bishop Burgess, the founder of St David's College, Lampeter in 1820, that Harford offered to donate to him the site of Lampeter Castle,'Castle Field' or'Cae Castell' in Welsh, which, as Lords of the Manor of Lampeter, he and his brothers now owned. As such, it is on land donated by Harford that the Lampeter campus of the University of Wales Trinity Saint David now stands. A bust of Harford is in the collection of the University, is on display in that institution's main library building on the Lampeter campus. Two halls of residence at the university, Harford I and Harford II, are named after him, he was appointed High Sheriff of Cardiganshire for 1825–26.

He was a moderately successful artist, his oil paintings can be found at auctions in the UK. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1823, he married the daughter of Richard Hart Davis. In life he went blind and died at Blaise Castle in 1866. Maria Edgeworth claimed that the main character in Hannah More's popular novel Coelebs in Search of a Wife was modeled on Harford. Correspondence and personal papers of John Scandrett Harford and the Harford family are held by Bristol Archives. Additional correspondence including letters sent by William Wilberforce to Harford is held by Duke University: William R Perkin Library.
