Mozilla Prism

Mozilla Prism is a discontinued project which integrated web applications with the desktop, allowing web applications to be launched from the desktop and configured independently of the default web browser. As of November 2010, Prism is listed as an inactive project at the Mozilla labs website. Prism is based on a concept called a site-specific browser. An SSB is designed to work with one web application, it doesn't have the menus and other accoutrements of a traditional web browser. The software is built upon XULRunner, so it is possible to get some Mozilla Firefox extensions to work in it; the preview announcement of Prism was made in October 2007. On February 1, 2011, Mozilla labs announced it would no longer maintain Prism, its ideas having been subsumed into a newer project called Chromeless. However, the Mozilla Labs mailing list revealed that Chromeless is not in fact a replacement for Prism, there is no Mozilla replacement for the out-of-the-box site-specific browser functionality of Prism, Chromeless instead being a platform for developers rather than users.

For a while Prism continued to be maintained under the original name of WebRunner, which also was discontinued in September 2011.

NWA World Tag Team Championship (Florida version)

The Florida version of the NWA World Tag Team Championship was the primary professional wrestling championship for tag teams in Championship Wrestling from Florida, used between 1961 and 1969. When the National Wrestling Alliance was created in 1948, the Board of Directors decided to allow each NWA member to create its own local version of the NWA World Tag Team Championship; as it is a professional wrestling championship, it is not won or lost competitively, but instead determined by the decision of the bookers of a wrestling promotion. The title is awarded after the chosen team "wins" a match to maintain the illusion that professional wrestling is a competitive sport. CWF, the NWA's Florida territory, introduced their version of the NWA World Tag Team Championship in January 1961 when they introduced the Von Brauners as the NWA World Tag Team Champions. Records are unclear on. In 1969 CWF abandoned the NWA World Tag Team Championship, with the Masked Infernos as the last champions. CWF used the NWA North American Tag Team Championship, NWA Southern Tag Team Championship, NWA United States Tag Team Championship, NWA Florida Global Tag Team Championship.

The Von Brauners hold the record for most championship reigns, six in total, as well as the longest combined reigns, with at least 540 days. The Von Brauners' first reign, the first reign of the championship, lasted at least 196 days, the longest individual reign. Eddie Graham held the championship on seven occasions with various partners; the shortest individual reign lasted nine days as Eddie Graham and Jose Lothario held it from October 25 to November 3, 1966.

Ronnie Brunswijk

Ronnie Brunswijk is a Surinamese ex-rebel leader and business man. After having served in the early 1980s as the personal body guard of Dési Bouterse, who overthrew the government in 1980 in a military coup, Brunswijk left him and formed the Surinamese Liberation Army, better known as the Jungle Commando. Brunswijk was seeking to gain recognition and rights for the Maroon minority of the interior, descendants of African slaves who had established independent communities in the 17th and 18th centuries. In addition, he wanted "to free Suriname from the military dictatorship." His forces fought against the national military under Bouterse in a civil war called the Surinamese Interior War. The civil war continued from 1986 to 1990, resulting in hundreds of deaths and more than 10,000 refugees in French Guiana, disruption of important mining industries. Peace was negotiated in 1991. Brunswijk has remained active in politics, serving as chair of Algemene Bevrijdings- en Ontwikkelingspartij, as a representative in the National Assembly.

In addition he is a player/owner of Marowijne football club Inter Moengotapoe. After war broke out, on 29 November 1986 the Surinamese army attacked Brunswijk's home village of Moiwana, where they murdered at least 39 villagers women and children, they destroyed the village. More than 100 refugees fled across the border to French Guiana, which became a destination for other refugees as the war wore on; the Inter-American Court of Human Rights ordered the government to pay millions of dollars in compensation to the 130 survivors of the village attack. The government and Brunswijk negotiated a peace in 1991 that included conversion of the Jungle Commando to a regular part of the Surinamese Army, with responsibility for patrolling their traditional interior territory; the government promised jobs for Maroons in gold prospecting and forestry, as they were isolated from many developing industries. The Netherlands prosecuted both Brunswijk and Bouterse in absentia for drug trafficking, both men were convicted.

Brunswijk was convicted in absentia in the Netherlands to six years imprisonment for cocaine smuggling by a Dutch court in Haarlem. He has an international arrest warrant issued against him. Brunswijk is chairman of the Surinamese political party ABOP, which has three seats in the parliament. Brunswijk occupies one of them. Brunswijk is a player and owner of Marowijne football club Inter Moengotapoe. In 2002, Brunswijk built a football stadium in Moengo; the disciplinary committee of the Surinamese Football Association suspended him for five years because he threatened some players with a handgun during a match in 2005. The suspension was retracted due to lack of evidence. In June 2012, Brunswijk was suspended for 1 year because he behaved violently towards the referee and a player in football match. In December 2007, Brunswijk beat up Rashied Doekhi in the Surinamese parliament. Doekhi is a member of Desi Bouterse's party and he insulted Paul Somohardjo chair of the Surinamese parliament. Brunswijk's nephew, Clyde Brunswijk, is a professional kickboxer
