Meshech Weare

Meshech Weare was an American farmer and revolutionary statesman from Seabrook and Hampton Falls, New Hampshire. He served as the first "President" of New Hampshire from 1776 to 1785. Meshech was born to Deacon Nathaniel Weare and his second wife, Mary Waite, in what was the Third Parish, New Hampshire; the site of the home is now in Seabrook. Weare was baptized in modern-day Hampton Falls, New Hampshire, on June 21, 1713, he was the youngest of 14 children. Some of his siblings included Elizabeth, Mehitable and Nathan. Weare graduated from Harvard College in 1735, he planned to work in the Congregational ministry, but those plans were changed after his marriage to Elizabeth Shaw in 1738. He planned on improving the land he and his wife bought after their marriage, but this plan was cut short by his wife's death, he remarried to Mehitable Wainwright in 1746. During this time he began to study law, starting with the books passed down to him from his father and grandfather, who were former lay Judges in the provincial court.

The house in which Weare lived was built in 1737 by Samuel Shaw, is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It was to be visited by George Washington, Marquis de Lafayette, James Monroe; the back half of the house burnt many years after Weare's death. It still stands in Hampton Falls, next to the park named after Weare and across from the town school, Lincoln Akerman School. Weare's political career began in 1739. For the next 35 years, he served in various political positions, including selectman and representative of Hampton Falls in the Assembly, he was thrice speaker of the House of Representatives, its clerk for eight years. In 1754, he was one of New Hampshire's delegates to the Albany Congress. In September 1772, Weare served as one of the four judges in the trial of the participants in the Pine Tree Riot, an early act of rebellion against British authority in the Colonies. Although the defendants were found guilty, the light fines assessed by the court were seen as encouraging other such acts, including the Boston Tea Party.

On January 5, 1776, New Hampshire became the first American state to adopt a formal constitution. Weare was a leader in the drafting of this document, which served as the basic instrument of government for the ensuing eight years or until the adoption of a second and more permanent constitution in 1784. Under this constitution, there was no established executive, the legislature was supreme. In practice, executive power was delegated to a Committee of Safety consisting of eight or ten legislative leaders; this committee had full power to act on behalf of the government while the legislature was not in session. After a brief interval, Weare was elected chairman of the Committee of Safety and served in this capacity throughout the Revolution. In addition to being New Hampshire's first "President", Weare was chief justice of the state's highest court the "Superior Court of Judicature" from 1776 to 1782, he served as presiding officer of the Council part of the upper house of the legislature. He managed to hold that position throughout the American Revolution.

He was elected a Foreign Honorary Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1782. The Committee of Safety, over which Weare presided, was a most interesting governmental institution, it operated both at the state and at the local level, was a law unto itself while the legislature was not in session. Its duties included supervision and coordination of military affairs within the state, raising of recruits and supplies, regulation of the state militia, custody of prisoners of war, supervision of the entrance and clearance of vessels from Portsmouth Harbor, regulation of privateers and captured prizes, surveillance of the Loyalists, regulation of trade and currency, supervision of price controls; the New Hampshire town of Weare was renamed in 1764 to honor his service as the town's first clerk. In Hampton Falls, a park, built in the early 2000s directly next to his house, is named for him. Weare's grave is located in a small cemetery an eighth of a mile down the road. Brown, Warren.

Ecadotril

Ecadotril is a neutral endopeptidase inhibitor and determined by the presence of peptidase family M13 as a neutral endopeptidase inhibited by phosphoramidon. Ecadotril is the -enantiomer of racecadotril. NEP-like enzymes include the endothelin-converting enzymes; the peptidase M13 family believed to activate or inactivate oligopeptide -hormones such as opioid peptides, neprilysin is another member of this group, in the case of the metallopeptidases and aspartic, the nucleophiles clan or family for example MA, is an activated water molecule. The peptidase domain for members of this family contains a bacterial member and resembles that of thermolysin the predicted active site residues for members of this family and thermolysin occur in the motif HEXXH. Thermolysin complexed with the inhibitor -thiorphan are isomeric thiol-containing inhibitors of endopeptidase EC 24-11. RB-101 Candoxatril

Barton Hall

Barton Hall is an on-campus field house on the campus of Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. It is the site of the school's indoor track facilities, ROTC offices and classes, Cornell Police, it served as the location of the former band room, once used by the Cornell Big Red Marching Band and the Cornell Big Red Pep Band. However, the summer of 2013 saw the completion of a new building for the Big Red Bands adjacent to Schoellkopf Field. For a long time, Barton Hall was the largest unpillared room in existence; the interior of the building covers 2 acres, includes a 1/8 mile indoor track. The New York State Drill Hall was designed by the official State Architect of New York, Lewis Pilcher, it was built to provide military instruction to Cornell students, as required by Cornell's status as a land-grant institution. Its drill shed contained 362 x 228 feet of open floor space, large enough to accommodate 1,000 men; the building is made of local limestone with double trusses spaced 40 feet apart to support the roof.

The Architectural Record called the "splendid drill hall" a "notably modern achievement in American architecture." It was built in 1914 and 1915 and was designed as a drill hall for the Department of Military Science. Upon its completion it was referred to as the "New Armory", as opposed to the Old Armory, a building on the now Engineering Quadrangle that has since been demolished and replaced by Hollister Hall. In January 1940, it was named for Col. Frank A. Barton, Class of 1891. Colonel Barton was one of the first two Cornell students to receive an army commission in Cornell's Military Science Program, was the first ROTC commandant at Cornell from 1904 to 1908. During World War I, Barton Hall functioned as an airplane hangar and it served the ROTC as an armory during World War II. Barton Hall was well-known to all Cornellians. In the days prior to online course registration, each student would come to Barton Hall at the start of the semester to register for classes; this process would involve placing punched cards into bins for each class positioned on tables throughout the hall.

Student organizations would recruit members at these events. In the first part of the 20th century, "drill" was mandatory for all male students, it would be conducted in Barton Hall; until 1974, graduation was conducted in Barton Hall, until it was moved outdoors to Schoellkopf Field. For many years, it hosted graduation ceremonies for Ithaca High School. Barton Hall was home to Cornell Basketball between 1919 and 1990 when the new field house named Bartels Hall, was completed. In 1995, Barton received another major change with the construction of the H. Hunt Bradley Track Center under the south bleachers; the center includes a Hall of Fame/meeting room/study facility for track, an office, a library and a 1,500-square-foot weight room. In the Spring of 1969 members of the Afro-American Society occupied Willard Straight Hall, the Cornell Student Union, in protest against judicial sanctions against several black students and to demand a black studies program. Two days after the students left Willard Straight Hall, a Students for a Democratic Society meeting became a "student takeover of Barton Hall" and the Barton Hall Community was formed.

On May 11, 1972, Barton Hall was again the site of anti-war protests, one protester threw a rock through a window. The rock thrower was mistakenly identified as physics major James R. Bean, suspended and placed on trial for first degree riot, a class E felony. Bean was acquitted after a four-day trial. Before the end of the trial, the District Attorney subpoenaed the defense witnesses to appear before the grand jury to further investigate the protest; the Bean trial was a high point in political tensions between the town and the campus and marked an end to efforts to prosecute anti-war protesters off-campus. For many years, Barton Hall had a non-operational deck gun used in Navy ROTC Training, fenced off from the general public. On May 1, 1969, as a protest against the Vietnam War, members of the Students for a Democratic Society broke into the fenced area and painted anti-war slogans on the gun. In a departure from the practice of handling student disciplinary issues with the campus judicial system, eight of the protesters were prosecuted in the city courts for trespassing, but charges against them were dropped.

In September 1969, the week-long trial attracted great publicity because the defense called as witnesses a large number of administrators, President Dale Corson, former President James A. Perkins to testify. Barton Hall serves as a concert venue for the Cornell Campus, with concerts produced by the Cornell Concert Commission, it has hosted acts such as The Grateful Dead, Ludacris, Bob Dylan, The Flaming Lips. The Grateful Dead's concert at Barton Hall on May 8, 1977 is considered to by some to be the greatest of their career. In 2011, a recording of the concert was one of 25 recordings selected that year for preservation in the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress; the concert is available in full on the band's 2017 live album Cornell 5/8/77. In 2009–2011, Barton Hall underwent a $8 million renovation, including structural repairs, work on the gutters and masonry, replacement of the roof and windows. Barton Hall now contains a 200 m track, basketball courts, the Hart Memorial Library, the Wortham Museum.

After the opening of Newman Arena, the building was remodeled into a premier indoor track facility. The Recaflex track features eight 42-inch lanes, one of the few indoor 200-meter tracks in the country with eight such lanes. Barton contains a throwing cage with a cement circle and crusher dust landing sector surrounded by a 25-foot hig

Don't Forget to Dance

"Don't Forget to Dance" is a song performed by British rock group The Kinks, released as a single in 1983 and included on their album State of Confusion. "Don't Forget to Dance" was recorded at Grand Slam Studios in New Jersey and Konk Studios in London in September and October 1982. Mixing and editing continued through late 1982 and into early 1983. Although the ballad was released as the follow-up single to "Come Dancing" from State of Confusion, the Kinks' label, Arista Records wanted to release it as the first single off the album. Ray Davies convinced Arista to release "Come Dancing" first and prevailed. "Don't Forget to Dance" was released as a single in August 1983 in the US and the following month in the UK. The song charted at 58 in the UK, it was the band's final single to make the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 in the US, peaking at #29. In the US, it reached #16 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart and #23 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, it reached #20 in Canada and #38 in New Zealand.

Music critic Pete Bishop praised the song for its "beautiful melody and arrangement." The lyrics are bittersweet. Although the subject's friends have all "either married, vanished, or just left alone" and she has a "broken heart", the singer states that "I bet you danced a good one in your time/And if this were a party/I'd make sure the next one would be mine." The chorus exhorts the woman "Don't forget to dance, no, no, no/Don't forget to smile." Allmusic described the song as "elegiac", Johnny Rogan called it one of Davies' stronger melodies. Critic Don McLeese of the Chicago Sun Times noted that "'Don't Forget to Dance' is gracefully melodic in the'Waterloo Sunset' tradition." The video for "Don't Forget to Dance" was produced by Michael Hamlyn and directed by Julien Temple, who had the same roles for the prior "Come Dancing" video. The video was first aired in Germany on 1 August; the first airing in the US was on 3 September on MTV and the first airing in the UK was in November. The video repeats elements from the "Come Dancing" video, including the Kinks playing themselves on the ballroom stage and Ray Davies pursuing the girl.

The video includes a dream sequence based on the band's early days and including a costume ball in a mansion. The scenes of the band playing in the ballroom may have been inspired by a concert the Ray Davies Quartet performed at the Lyceum Ballroom on New Year's Eve 31 December 1962. Since its initial release, "Don't Forget to Dance" has been included on a number of Kinks compilation albums, including Come Dancing with the Kinks, You Really Got Me: The Very Best of the Kinks, The Kinks Greatest: 1970-1986 and The Ultimate Collection. In 1985, Austrian musician Sigi Maron covered "Don't Forget to Dance" with Viennese lyrics titled "Geh no net furt" on his album Unterm Regenbogen. Lyrics of this song at MetroLyrics

Geo URI scheme

The geo URI scheme is a Uniform Resource Identifier scheme defined by the Internet Engineering Task Force's RFC 5870 as: a Uniform Resource Identifier for geographic locations using the'geo' scheme name. A'geo' URI identifies a physical location in a two- or three-dimensional coordinate reference system in a compact, human-readable, protocol-independent way; the current revision of the vCard specification supports geo URIs in a vCard's "GEO" property, the GeoSMS standard uses geo URIs for geotagging SMS messages. Android based devices support geo URIs, although that implementation is based on a draft revision of the specification, supports a different set of URI parameters and query strings. A geo URI is not to be confused with the former website of GeoURL. A simple geo URI might look like: geo:37.786971,-122.399677where the two numerical values represent latitude and longitude and are separated by a comma. They are coordinates of a horizontal grid. If a third comma-separated value is present, it represents altitude.

Coordinates in the Southern and Western hemispheres as well as altitudes below the coordinate reference system are signed negative with a leading dash. The geo URI allows for an optional "uncertainty" value, separated by a semicolon, representing the uncertainty of the location in meters, is described using the "u" URI parameter. A geo URI with an uncertainty parameter looks as follows: geo:37.786971,-122.399677. The values of the coordinates only make sense; the default CRS is the World Geodetic System 1984, it is not recommended to use any other: The optional'crs' URI parameter described below may be used by future specifications to define the use of CRSes other than WGS-84. This is intended to cope with the case of another CRS replacing WGS-84 as the predominantly used one, rather than allowing the arbitrary use of thousands of CRSes for the URI; the only justified use of other CRS today is to preserve projection in large-scale maps, as local UTM, or for non-terrestrial coordinates such as those on the Moon or Mars.

The syntax and semantic of the CRS parameter, separated by a semicolon, is described at section 8.3 of RFC 5870. Examples: The Washington Monument's location expressed with UTM-zone 18S and its standard ID: geo:323482,4306480. Whilst the labeltext parameter and future parameters may be given in any order, the crs and the u parameters must come first. If both are used, the crs must precede the u. All parameters are case-insensitive, so, imagining a future new parameter mapcolors, it can be ignored by simpler applications, the above example is equivalent to: geo:323482,4306480; the Geo URI scheme semantics, expressed in the section 3.4 of the RFC 5870, is not explicit about some mathematical assumptions, so it is open to interpretation. After ~10 years of its publication, there are some consensual or "most used" assumptions; the syntax of the Geo UI defines coodinates as coordinates = coord-a "," coord-b, where coord-c is optional. The semantic of coord-c for WGS-84 is altitude, the concept is extend for other coordinates.

The RFC explains that "... undefined <altitude> MAY assume that the URI refers to the respective location on Earth's physical surface." However, "... an <altitude> value of 0 MUST NOT be mistaken to refer to'ground elevation'". In other words, when an altitude is defined, the measurement is done relative to the geoid, a surface defined by Earth's gravity approximating the mean sea level; when it is undefined, the elevation is assumed to be the altitude of the latitude-longitude point, its height relative to the geoid. A point with a measure "altitude=0" is, not to be confused with an undefined value: it refers to an altitude of 0 meters above the geoid. Geo URI is not about exact abstract positions it is an location estimate, we can interpret it as the approximate physical position of an object in the Earth's surface; the RFC 5870 not formalize the use of the "uncertainty" term. The clues about it come from citations: the only normative reference with something about uncertainty is the RFC 5491.

The main informative reference, ISO 6709:2008, not use the term "uncertainty", but use the terms "accuracy" and "precision", which are uncertainty facets and can be interpreted in accordance with ISO 5725-1. Putting all together, adopting these clues, the usual statistical assumptions, the explicit definitions of the RFC, we obtain the Geo URI's uncertainty mathematical properties: uncertainty is symmetric: the RFC is explicit, we can understand it as valid simplification hypothesis. "The single uncertainty value is applied to all dimensions given in the URI". Res
