Nasril spent some time playing for Perak FA in their reserve squad, but an injury to first-choice keeper Mohd Hamsani Ahmad, coupled with the loss of form of usual back-up keeper Tay Sin Kiat forced coach Steve Darby to play Nasril. Nasril made his first team debut on 4 December 2005, in a Malaysia Charity Shield match against Selangor which Perak won 4–1. Nasril's performance drew the plaudits of the media and coach Darby. Perak continued to keep faith in Nasril after first-choice Hamsani returned from injury. Nasril was nominated as one of the nation's top three goalkeepers in the inaugural Malaysian Football Awards, held in 2006.

However, as of April 2007, nothing has materialised and interest seems to have cooled down, he moved alongside Hamsani. After just one season, which he failed to dislodge Hamsani for first-choice goalkeeper spot, he moved to ATM FA for the 2010 season, he returned to Perak for the 2011 season, where he was chosen as the first-choice goalkeeper by Perak new head coach Norizan Bakar. He played with Perak for two seasons, helping Perak to Super League's 4th place in 2011 and 6th place in 2012, he was not retained by Perak for 2013 Malaysia Super League season, so he joined newly promoted Pahang FA as a replacement for their former goalkeeper Wan Azraie Wan Teh who departed to Terengganu FA.

Royal corgis

Queen Elizabeth II’s corgis were the Pembroke Welsh Corgi dogs owned by Queen Elizabeth II and her parents, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother. Fond of corgis since she was a small child, Elizabeth II has owned more than 30 corgis since she became Queen of the Commonwealth realms in 1952. Elizabeth II owned at least one Corgi at any given time between the years 1933-2018. In 2007, Elizabeth II had five corgis: Monty, Linnet and Holly. Monty and Holly appeared in the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony when, in a sketch, Daniel Craig arrived at Buckingham Palace to escort the Queen to the event. Monty had belonged to the Queen Mother, died in September 2012, it was reported in 2015 that the Queen stopped breeding corgis so as not to leave any behind when she died. Her final corgi, died in April of 2018. Two extant dorgis and Candy, remain; the royal corgis were globally publicized. Leaving a lasting legacy after death, they have been depicted and immortalized in various artwork, such as statues, professional photographs, paintings.

For instance, the crown coin commemorating the Golden Jubilee of Elizabeth II depicts the Queen with a corgi. As another example, Elizabeth II is portrayed by Helen Mirren as owning several Corgis during 1997, in the 2006 film The Queen; the Queen has been fond of corgis since she was a small child, having fallen in love with the corgis owned by the children of the Marquess of Bath. King George VI brought home Dookie in 1933. A photograph from George VI's photo album shows a ten-year-old Princess Elizabeth with Dookie at Balmoral. Elizabeth and her sister Princess Margaret would feed Dookie by hand from a dish held by a footman; the other early favourite corgi during the same time was Jane. Elizabeth II's mother, at that time Queen Elizabeth, introduced a disciplined regimen for the dogs. Meals were served for each dog in its own dish, the diet approved by veterinary experts with no tidbits from the royal table. A proprietary brand of meat dog biscuits was served in the morning, while the late afternoon meal consisted of dog meal with gravy.

Extra biscuits were handed out for rewards. Crackers was one of the Queen Mother's corgis, nearly a constant companion. In 1944, Elizabeth was given Susan as a gift on her 18th birthday. Susan accompanied Elizabeth on her honeymoon in 1947; the corgis owned by the Queen are descended from Susan. Rozavel Sue, daughter of Rozavel Lucky Strike, an international champion, was one of the Queen's corgis in the early 1950s; the Queen has owned over thirty corgis since her accession to the thrones of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms in 1952. The Queen's fondness for corgis and horses is known throughout her realms. For instance, when Elizabeth and Prince Philip visited Grand Cayman in 1983, government officials gave her black coral sculptures of a corgi and a horse as a gift, both made by Bernard Passman. Sugar was the nursery pet of Princess Anne. In 1955, her dogs and Sherry, were surprise Christmas gifts from the Queen to the Prince and Princess. Pictured with the royal family, the corgi Sugar made the cover of The Australian Women's Weekly on 10 June 1959.

Sugar's twin, belonged to the Queen Mother. Heather became one of the Queen's favourites. Heather was the mother of Tiny and Foxy; the corgis enjoyed a privileged life in Buckingham Palace. They resided in bespoke room devoted to their habitation, known as the Corgi Room, slept in elevated wicker baskets; the Queen tended to the corgis in her kennel herself. She chose the sires of litters that were bred in her kennel; the corgis had an extensive menu at the palace which included fresh rabbit and beef, served by a gourmet chef. At Christmas, the Queen made stockings for pets full of delicacies such as biscuits. In 1999, one of Queen Elizabeth's royal footmen was demoted from Buckingham Palace for his "party trick of pouring booze into the corgis' food and water" and watching them "staggering about" with relish. In 2007, the Queen was noted to have five corgis, Emma, Linnet and Holly. In 2012, Queen Elizabeth II's corgis Monty and Holly appeared during the brief James Bond sketch when Daniel Craig arrived at Buckingham Palace for a mission to take the queen to the 2012 Summer Olympics opening ceremony.

Monty, who had belonged to the Queen Mother, one of her "Dorgis" died in September 2012. Monty had been named for the horse friend of the queen, Monty Roberts. In November 2012, it was reported that Elizabeth owns two corgis and Holly, two Dorgis and Vulcan, it was reported in July 2015 that the Queen has stopped breeding corgis as she does not wish any to survive her in the event of her death. Monty Roberts had urged Elizabeth to breed more corgis in 2012 but she had told him that she "didn't want to leave any young dog behind" and wanted to put an end to the practice; as of April 2018, with the death of Willow, the Queen no longer has any

Rosa Beddington

Rosa Susan Penelope Beddington FRS was a British biologist whose career had a major impact on developmental biology. Beddington was born on 23 March 1956, the second daughter of Anna Beddington, she attended Sherborne School for Girls and attended Brasenose College, Oxford. Beddington embarked on the study of anterior-posterior axial patterning in mammalian embryos, beginning with her doctoral thesis entitled, "Studies on cell fate and cell potency in the postimplantation mammalian embryo" supervised by Richard Gardner and Virginia Papaioannou, was awarded a DPhil in 1981. Beddington published numerous high-profile papers in her short career, she worked extensively on the developmental genetics of axial patterning, germ layer specification, other phenomena of gastrulation in mammals, including demonstrating that the node is the organizer in mammals. Her technical contributions to experimental embryology include surgical re-implantation into the uterus to extend the time an experimentally manipulated embryo can be cultured and the use of a transgenic marker to identify transplant versus host tissue in experimental embryos.

While a fellow at the Imperial Cancer Research Fund, laboratory in Oxford and Elizabeth Robertson recognised the potential of embryonic stem cells for the study of genetic manipulation after demonstrating the ability of these cells to colonise developing embryos. Beddington taught at the newly established Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories summer course on manipulating the mouse embryo from 1986, including two years as co-organiser with Robertson. Beddington was the meetings secretary for the British Society for Developmental Biology from 1990–95. In 1993, she established and led a Division of Mammalian Development at the National Institute for Medical Research. A talented artist, she designed the Waddington Medal, awarded for outstanding performance and contribution to the field of developmental biology. Beddington herself received the Waddington Medal in 1999. Additionally, the British Society for Developmental Biology has established in her honor The Beddington Medal, a national prize given for the most outstanding PhD dissertation in developmental biology in the previous year.

Its design is based upon drawings by Beddington. Her nomination for the Royal Society reads: Beddington was married to Robin Denniston, she died on 18 May 2001 from complications of cancer

Carlos Humberto Reyes

Carlos Humberto Reyes is leader of the trade union STIBYS in Honduras, a coordinator of the Frente Nacional de Resistencia contra el Golpe de Estado en Honduras and was an independent candidate for the 2009 Honduran presidential election before pulling out on November 9.

An international human rights mission including, among others, Nora Cortiñas of Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo, reported that Carlos Humberto Reyes was injured on 30 July 2009 when "the army and the special forces of the National Police of Honduras attacked thousands of pacific demonstrators, with fire weapons and rubber projectiles and as well as tear gas, thrown from helicopters."On 9 November 2009, following a national meeting of leaders of the National Resistance Front against the coup d'état, Reyes declared the withdrawal of his candidacy, on the grounds of not legitimising the coup d'état and fraudulent elections.

The Honduran newspapers El Tiempo and La Tribuna showed Reyes' right hand in a plaster cast. Reyes' facebook entry

Trois valses romantiques

The Trois valses romantiques are a set of three pieces for two pianos by Emmanuel Chabrier. Chabrier began the composition in mid 1880. Chabrier wrote his friend Paul Lacome that he was damned if he knew why he was writing them, as the Enochs will find them too long, too difficult. Myers notes the considerable demands made on players’ technique. To inform his publisher Georges Costallat that he had managed to finish the third waltz, on 3 September 1883 he wrote an acrostic postcard, thus:—Oiseau qui se pare des plumes du paon. —Qualification de la nommée Carabosse. —Note de la gamme. —Ousqu’il y avait un cheval de bois. —Peintre ordinaire de la place St Marc. —Eau de table. Ah! Ah! Ah! E. CH. Ile-faulx-Hill-Luminais! The waltzes were given their first public performance at the Société Nationale de Musique on 15 December 1883 with André Messager and the composer playing. Messager would play them with Francis Poulenc, they are dedicated to the wife of Madame G. Costallat. For a performance in 1887, d’Indy wrote that Chabrier told him not to play the pieces as if they were by a member of the Institut! – this was followed by a lesson in playing Chabrier, wide a huge range of expression and interpretative detail.

Claude Debussy studied them at the Villa Medicis in 1885 with Paul Vidal, who together played them to Franz Liszt, visiting Rome in 1886. In 1893 at the Salle Pleyel, Maurice Ravel and Ricardo Viñes played them to Chabrier who spent an hour and a half giving them his encouragement and advice; the waltzes were orchestrated by a champion of Chabrier's works, conductor-composer Felix Mottl, who made the orchestral version of the same composer's Bourrée fantasque and Wagner's Wesendonck Lieder. Delage notes the many novelties in the pieces – chains of ninths, methodic use of pentatonic scales in the third waltz, sharp and spontaneous rhythms; the first waltz in D major is the shortest of the three: after an introductory carillon, the waltz spins along in bubbling form. The second waltz in E major is calmer than the first, with an opening fanfare anticipating the Fête Polonaise of Le roi malgré lui; the third waltz in F major is the culmination of the set, where certain passages presage Debussy and Ravel.
