Micky Dolenz

George Michael Dolenz Jr. is an American actor, television director, radio personality and theater director, best known as a vocalist and drummer of the 1960s pop/rock band the Monkees. Dolenz was born at the Cedars of Lebanon Hospital, in Los Angeles, the son of actors George Dolenz and Janelle Johnson, he has three younger sisters, Gemma Marie and Kathleen. Gemma's nickname, Coco, is a shortened form of "Coco Sunshine", a nickname given to her as a child by Micky. Coco was a frequent guest on the set of The Monkees TV show and sometimes a guest performer on records by The Monkees, singing background vocals or duetting with Micky, she performs as a member of Micky's backing band during his concerts. Dolenz began his show-business career in 1956 when he starred in a children's TV show called Circus Boy under the name Mickey Braddock, he played Corky, an orphaned water boy for the elephants in a one-ring circus at the start of the 20th century. The program ran for two seasons, after which Dolenz made sporadic appearances on network television shows and pursued his education.

Dolenz went to Ulysses S. Grant High School in Valley Glen, Los Angeles and graduated in 1962. In 1964, he was cast as Ed in the episode "Born of Kings and Angels" of the NBC education drama series, Mr. Novak, starring James Franciscus as an idealistic Los Angeles teacher. Dolenz was attending college in Los Angeles when he was hired for the "drummer" role in NBC's The Monkees. Dolenz had his own rock group called "Micky and the One-Nighters" in the early- to mid-1960s with himself as lead singer, he had penned two tunes of his own at the time. According to Dolenz, his band's live stage act included rock songs, cover songs, some R&B, one of his favorite songs to sing being Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode". "Johnny B. Goode" was the song, he cut two 45s in 1965 that went unreleased until the Monkees' success in 1967. Those two 45s came out on the Challenge label and the songs were "Don't Do It"/"Plastic Symphony III" and "Huff Puff"/"Fate". In 1965, Dolenz was cast in the television sitcom The Monkees and became the drummer and a lead vocalist in the band created for the show.

He was not a drummer and needed lessons to be able to mime credibly, but was taught how to play properly. By the time the Monkees went on tour in late 1966, Dolenz was competent enough to play the drums himself, he learned to play right-handed and left-footed because of a leg disease called Perthes making his right leg weak. Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart, writers of many of the Monkees' songs, observed that when brought into the studio together, the four actors would try to make each other laugh; because of this, the writers brought in each singer individually. The antics escalated. At the time, Dolenz did not know Kirshner on sight. According to Mike Nesmith, Dolenz's voice made the Monkees' sound distinctive, during tension-filled times and Peter Tork voluntarily turned over lead vocal duties to Dolenz on their own compositions. Dolenz wrote a few of the band's self-penned songs, most prominent being "Randy Scouse Git" from the album Headquarters, he provided the lead vocals for such hits as "Last Train to Clarksville", "Pleasant Valley Sunday", "I'm a Believer".

Dolenz directed and co-wrote the show's final episode. Dolenz purchased the third modular Moog synthesizer sold commercially, his performance on the Monkees' song "Daily Nightly", from the album Pisces, Capricorn & Jones Ltd. was one of the first uses of the synthesizer on a rock recording. He sold his instrument to Bobby Sherman, he is one of two surviving members of the Monkees. He is the only surviving member of the Monkees, part of every lineup since the band's inception, the only member with contemporary recordings of his vocals on all studio albums; the Moog synthesizer that Dolenz had bought proved vital when he composed a song entitled "Easy On You" in 1971 and began recording it in his home studio, with him playing acoustic guitar and for a keyboard, his early Moog. With that song completed, he next invited former Monkee Peter Tork over to help with more recordings. A fortuitous street encounter led to former Monkee stand-in David Price joining, as well, with his contributing a rock song he had written called "Oh Someone".

With Dolenz on drums and vocals, Tork on bass, Price on rhythm guitar, the song was completed in only two hours. J. Jones came in two days and added lead guitar. With these two songs recorded, Dolenz contacted Mike Curb the head of MGM Records, after playing the songs for Curb, was signed to MGM. Dolenz released songs for MGM for about three years. After the first year, Dolenz's friend Harry Nilsson contributed his song "Daybreak" and arranged and produced the recording, as well, it included Keith Allison on guitar, former Monkees producer Chip Douglas on bass, steel-guitarist Orville "Red" Rhodes. By early 1974, with no chart successes to date, Dolenz headed to England, there with Tony Scotti cut four songs for MGM, two rock classics "Splish Splash" and "Purple People Eater", as well as "I Hate Rock And Roll" and a new song "Wing Walker". Meanwhile, the chief at MGM Records, Mik

1 Corinthians 16

1 Corinthians 16 is the sixteenth chapter of the First Epistle to the Corinthians in the New Testament of the Christian Bible. It is authored by Paul the Apostle and Sosthenes in Ephesus, composed between 52–55 CE, sent to the church in Corinth; this chapter contains the closing statements of the letter, with Paul's travel plans, final instructions, greetings. Verse 8 confirms that Paul was in Ephesus when the letter was composed, verse 21 confirms that the majority of the letter was scribed by an amanuensis; the original text was written in Koine Greek. This chapter is divided into 24 verses; some early manuscripts containing the text of this chapter are: Codex Vaticanus Codex Sinaiticus Codex Alexandrinus Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus. Codex Freerianus Codex Claromontanus This part discusses the fifth matter the Corinthians wrote about regarding the money collected for the poor Christians in Jerusalem. Paul expects to spend the winter in Corinth, to get them participating in his future ministry, desires to visit Rome, but he planned to remain in Ephesus until Pentecost, due to a good evangelistic opportunities in that city.

Paul asks that Timothy is to be well received when he comes to visit them, be protected from enmity and be given provision of his needs for travel. The sixth and final matter the Corinthians wrote is to ask for the return of Apollos, but it is clear from 1:12. Nonetheless, Paul urges Apollos to go. On the other hand, Apollos responded that'it was not at all the will that he now come' and'he will come when he has the opportunity', suggesting that Apollos understood the bad timing to accept the invitation at this time of tension between Paul and the church there. Interestingly,'Apollos was content for Paul to reply on his behalf'; the members of the household of Stephanas were'the earliest fruits of Paul's ministry in Corinth, they have used their resources to help God's people'. Paul has experienced in Ephesus how Stephanas ministered to the needs, together with Fortunatus and Achaicus, as their arrivals gave joy to Paul while he was separated from the church in Corinth. Paul forwards the greetings of the churches in the province of Asia, of which Ephesus is the capital, as his ministry has expanded beyond that one city.

Other co-workers sent their greetings, including Priscilla and Aquila, Paul calls the Corinthians to greet each other'as members of a holy brotherhood'. To the end, Paul himself took the pen and wrote his personal blessings, as well as curse to those who preach another gospel, but ended the letter with the greeting of grace as he added his love in Christ Jesus to the congregation, despite their attitudes towards him, to follow the example of Christ's love, that never changes; the churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church, in their house."Asia" in the narrower sense, only the western coastlands of Asia Minor, or Lydian Asia, where Ephesus is the capital. The salutation with my own hand—Paul’s; this statement suggests that the majority of this epistle may have been scribed by someone else, many interpreters suggest that Sosthenes was the amanuensis of the Epistle. King James Version If any man love not the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be Anathema Maranatha.

New King James Version If anyone does not love the Lord Jesus Christ, let him be accursed. O Lord, come."Lord Jesus Christ": The Vulgate Latin, the Syriac and Ethiopian versions read "our Lord". "Anathema": Hebrew: cherem. If isolated to any other purposes, may entail a curse on persons, so it is translated "accursed", as in Romans 9:3. Here it is suggested that the persons who don't love Jesus as the Lord should be separated from their communion, as rendered in the Arabic version, "let him be separated", i.e. from the church."Maranatha": consisting of two words, "maran atha", "our Lord comes", as added by the apostle Paul. The Ethiopian version, joining it with the former word, renders the whole "let him be anathema in the coming of our Lord".

Auvergne is a former administrative region in south-central France, comprising the four departments of Allier, Puy-de-Dôme, Cantal and Haute-Loire. Since 1 January 2016, it has been part of the new region Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes; the administrative region of Auvergne is larger than the historical province of Auvergne, one of the seven counties of Occitania, includes provinces and areas that were not part of Auvergne. The Auvergne region is composed of the following old provinces: Auvergne: departments of Puy-de-Dôme, northwest of Haute-Loire, extreme south of Allier; the province of Auvergne is contained inside the Auvergne region Bourbonnais: department of Allier. A small part of Bourbonnais lies in the neighbouring Centre-Val de Loire region. Velay: centre and southeast of department of Haute-Loire. Velay is contained inside the Auvergne region. A small part of Gévaudan: extreme southwest of Haute-Loire. Gévaudan is inside the Languedoc-Roussillon region. A small part of Vivarais: extreme southeast of Haute-Loire.

Vivarais is inside the Rhône-Alpes region. A small part of Forez: extreme northeast of Haute-Loire. Forez is inside the Rhône-Alpes region. Velay, Gévaudan, Vivarais are considered to be sub-provinces of the old province of Languedoc. Forez is often considered to be a sub-province of Lyonnais. Therefore, the modern region of Auvergne is composed of the provinces of Auvergne, major part of Bourbonnais, parts of Languedoc and Lyonnais; the region is home to a chain of volcanoes known collectively as the "chaîne des Puys". The last confirmed eruption was around 4040 BCE; the volcanoes began forming some 70,000 years ago, most have eroded, leaving plugs of hardened magma that form rounded hilltops known as puys. Auvergne has an area of 26,013 square kilometres, 4.8% of France's total area. Auvergne is one of the smallest regions in France. Auvergne is known for dormant volcanoes. Together the Monts Dore and the Chaîne des Puys include 80 volcanoes; the Puy de Dôme is the highest volcano in the region, with an altitude of 1,465 metres.

The Sancy Massif in the Monts Dore is the highest point in Auvergne. The northern part is covered in hills, while the southern portion is mountainous and dotted with pastures; the Forest of Tronçais is the largest oak forest in Europe. Auvergne has two major rivers in Auvergne: the Loire runs through the southeast and borders the northeast, the Allier runs from north to south down the center of Auvergne, with branches going east and west. Over many years the Allier river has created. Auvergne has about 50 freshwater lakes; some have volcanic origins. Lac de Guéry is the highest lake in Auvergne. Auvergne is bordered to the north by the region of Centre-Val de Loire, by five former administrative regions: Rhône-Alpes to the east, Languedoc-Roussillon and Midi-Pyrénées to the south, Limousin to the west, Burgundy to the north; the average annual temperature is 12 °C, the region receives 510–1,020 mm of rainfall annually. There are short summers; the region of Auvergne was named after one of the most powerful Gallic tribes.

It was composed of the Gabali, the Vellavi, the Cadurci, whose sphere of influence included the regions of Languedoc and Aquitaine. Vercingetorix was elected king in 52 BC, his father, his predecessor, had been killed by his companions who opposed Celtillos' goal of making the title hereditary. In the winter of 53/52 BC, Vercingetorix created alliances with all the Celtic tribes surrounding him by holding as hostages daughters or sons of the kings of each tribe. With this threat, he gained their guarantees of faithfulness and alliance. Based on reports in 2007 of excavations by archaeologists, the capital of the Arverni is believed to have been situated between Gergovie, Corent and several other significant areas within a 35 km range. Researchers estimate a population of 150,000 inhabitants living in the centre of this area, a total of more than 400,000 inhabitants living in the region of these towns; the Arverni were one of the most powerful and wealthy tribes in ancient Gaul: They were protected by their location in a mountainous area, which provided strong defenses from outside attackers They had resources: numerous mines of gold and other precious metals The uplands had pastures available for grazing of cattle and sheep herds Their artisans mastered metalworking and complex craftwork, Vercingetorix is described with "a big armor made of many assembled silver pieces, reflecting the sun", in particular copperwork They minted their own money, had strong trade with nearby tribes They had ceramic manufacture They had influence on nearby tribes and were able to rally the Aedui during the revolt of Vercingetorix.

A shrine in Auvergne marks the Battle of Gergovia. Based on scholars' interpretation of books by Caesar, it took place about 12 km from present-day Clermont-Ferrand. Vercingetorix beat. Roman troops won a victory in Alesia in Burgundy. Roman legionaries had established over several hundred metres, they captured Vercingetorix and took him to Rome, where h
