National Cancer Survivors Day

The National Cancer Survivors Day is a secular holiday celebrated on the first Sunday in June in the United States of America. The day is meant to “demonstrate that life after a cancer diagnosis can be a reality”. Though it is celebrated in the United States, the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation is attempting to grow its popularity in other countries, with some success; the National Cancer Survivors Day was first announced by Merril Hastings at the second national conference meeting of the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship in Albuquerque, New Mexico on November 20, 1987. Hastings filed the name as an International Class 042 Service, as well as registering with the United States Patent and Trademark Office in the name of Pulse Publications; the first National Cancer Survivors Day was held on June 5, 1988. Twenty-two other National Cancer Survivors Days have taken place since. Local towns, cities and support groups host events and celebrations on National Cancer Survivors Day. Celebrations can include parades, art exhibits and testimonies to honor local cancer survivors.

The 2008 celebration included a commencement by U. S. President George W. Bush and the National Cancer Institute director. Antigua and Barbuda have included a walk and run as part of their celebrations since 2007; the National Cancer Survivors Day Foundation is attempting to expand the holidays celebrations worldwide, with some limited success. Countries targeted include Canada, the Cayman Islands, Trinidad, Italy, The Netherlands, Malaysia, Guam. Australia, South Africa, the American Samoa. Frequent sponsors of the National Cancer Survivors Day include AstraZeneca, COPING Magazine, Lilly Oncology, the R. A. Bloch Cancer Foundation. 8.^ "National Cancer Survivors Day - June 2, 2019 - Faces of Cancer St Lucia. Theme: Moving On and Up.

Jamie McCrimmon

James Robert McCrimmon simply called Jamie, is a fictional character played by Frazer Hines in the long-running British science fiction television series Doctor Who. A piper of the Clan McLaren who lived in 18th-century Scotland, he was a companion of the Second Doctor and a regular in the programme from 1966 to 1969; the spelling of his surname varies from one script to another. James Robert McCrimmon was the son of Donald McCrimmon—a piper, like his father and his father's father. Jamie first appears in The Highlanders, encountering the Doctor and Polly in the aftermath of the Battle of Culloden in 1746. At the end of the story, Polly suggests. Jamie continues to travel with the Doctor after Ben and Polly leave the TARDIS at the end of The Faceless Ones, he appears in all but the first Second Doctor serial, The Power of the Daleks, in more episodes than any other companion, although Tegan Jovanka served with the Doctor for the longest continuous period in terms of years on the series. Jamie shares a lively, bantering relationship with the Doctor, during his time in the series sees the arrival and departure of first Victoria Waterfield and Zoe Heriot.

Jamie, being a product of his time, is always solicitous and gentlemanly towards the women who travel with him. Jamie does not have the background to always understand the situations his adventures with the Doctor take him into, but is quick enough to translate high technology and concepts into equivalents he can understand and deal with, his relationship with the Doctor is not always smooth and in The Evil of the Daleks he comes close to leaving the Doctor whom he feels has been manipulating him and Victoria to discover the human factor for the Daleks, without thinking about the consequences. His battle cry Creag an tuire, in Scottish Gaelic, translates to "The Boar's Rock." It is similar to Creag the motto of the MacLaren Clan of Scotland. Together with the Doctor, Jamie encounters Cybermen, the Yeti in the London Underground, the Ice Warriors, many other dangers. Jamie is fond and protective of Victoria, due in part to her being an elegant Victorian lady. For example, in The Ice Warriors Jamie's first priority is to rescue Victoria despite being injured to the point where he can't walk.

Jamie is heartbroken when Victoria decides to stay with the Harris family at the end of Fury from the Deep, to the point of being angry with the Doctor for allowing her to leave. Jamie finds Zoe's more modern attitudes and bossy nature irritating, but adopts the same protective attitude disguised by the same bantering he engages in with the Doctor. Jamie's simple common sense beats Zoe's strict logic, such as in The Dominators where Jamie realises that the erupting volcano is going to threaten the TARDIS, while the Doctor and Zoe are still congratulating themselves on defeating their enemies. During the filming of The Mind Robber, Frazer Hines contracted chickenpox and was replaced for part of the serial by Hamish Wilson; this was written in as part of the story when Jamie is turned into a cardboard cut-out and has his face removed by the Master of the Land of Fiction. The Doctor's first attempt to reconstruct his face is unsuccessful. Jamie's real face is restored when Hines recovered. Jamie's travels with the Doctor come to an end on the battlefields of The War Games, when the Time Lords put the Doctor on trial for interfering with the universe.

For his offences, the Doctor is exiled to Earth. Jamie and Zoe are returned to their own times, their memories of the Doctor wiped, save for their first encounters with him; when last seen, Jamie is fighting an English redcoat back on the fields of Scotland. Frazer Hines returned to Doctor Who as an illusory image of Jamie in the 20th-anniversary special The Five Doctors, he reprised the role in the 1985 serial The Two Doctors alongside Patrick Troughton and Colin Baker as the Second and Sixth Doctors with the Sixth Doctor remembering that he was always rather fond of Jamie when they travelled together. He is mentioned by the Fifth Doctor in Castrovalva when he calls Adric Jamie, by the Sixth Doctor in The Two Doctors and Attack of the Cybermen, by the Seventh Doctor in The Curse of Fenric. A vision of Jamie is seen along with every other companion aside from Leela on the scanner screen in Resurrection of the Daleks. In Tooth and Claw, the Tenth Doctor uses the alias Doctor James McCrimmon together with a Scottish accent.

Jamie's ultimate fate remains unclear within the accepted canonicity of the various Doctor Who spin-off media. In the comic strip story "The World Shapers" with the Sixth Doctor, published in Doctor Who Magazine #127–#129, an elderly Jamie remembers his time with the Doctor, explaining that the Doctor had taught him tricks to ensure the Time Lords would not wipe his memories. In this story, written by Grant Morrison, Jamie sacrifices himself to stop the titular world shaper machine, evolving aliens into Cybermen. Jamie's death outside the television series was controversial due to his status as a prominent companion, the fact that story offers an origin story for the cybermen than contradicts everything else about them to have been produced. In the Virgin New Adventures novel Timewyrm: Revelation, writer Paul Cornell omitted Jamie from the group of deceased companions encountered by the Seventh Doctor. In "Planet of the Dead", a race of shapeshifters known as the Ganzalum impersonate the Doctor's dead companions, including Jamie.

Vauxhall Slant-4 engine

The Vauxhall Slant-4 is an inline four-cylinder petrol car engine manufactured by Vauxhall Motors. Unveiled in 1966, it was one of the first production overhead camshaft designs to use a timing belt to drive the camshaft; the Slant-4 block was used as a development mule for the Lotus 900 series of engines. Vauxhall used the engine in a variety of models until production ended in 1983; the Slant-4 gets its name from the fact that its cylinders are inclined at an angle of 45° from vertical. This layout came about because Vauxhall had planned to develop a whole family of engines all built on the same production line. There were to be slant-4s and V8s in both petrol and diesel versions, designed under the guidance of Vauxhall's chief engineer, John Alden. Although a V8 petrol prototype and several 4-cylinder diesel prototypes were built only the 4-cylinder petrol engine made it to series production; the engine has a single overhead camshaft driven by a timing belt. The Slant-4 was one of three engines using this method of driving the camshaft released the same year, the others being the Fiat Twin Cam engine and the Pontiac straight-6 OHC.

Prior to 1966, belt-driven camshafts had only appeared in the Glas 1004 series starting in 1962 and in the few Devin-Panhard cars built starting in 1956 by the originator of the belt-driven camshaft, American automotive entrepreneur and racing driver Bill Devin. The camshaft operated two valves per cylinder. An ingenious valve train design incorporating an inclined socket head cap screw allowed valve clearances to be adjusted with a feeler gauge and an Allen key; the block and crossflow head are both of cast iron. The layout lowers the overall height of the engine, which allowed for more aerodynamic vehicle bodies to be achieved by lowering the bonnet line, it means most of the engine is easy to access for maintenance, with the exception of the exhaust manifold and spark plugs, which are "underneath" the slanted cylinders. Prototype engines were fitted to the FC Victor, the engine appeared in the Vauxhall XVR concept car; the first production car to use the engine was the 1967 FD Victor. The original engine capacities were 1,975 cc.

For the 1972 launch of the FE Victor, the smaller engine was increased to 1,759 cc, the larger to 2,279 cc. Blydenstein Racing developed a long stroke version with a capacity of 2,600 cc capable of producing 250 hp. Having been designed to withstand the stresses of diesel compression ignition, the block is immensely strong and able to handle large increases in power without modification; the crank was designed to be shared with the diesel version, which meant its strength was assured for the petrol version. The larger displacement versions are known for their immense torque, but as not smooth running or high-revving. A fuel-injected version of the 2.3-litre engine was planned for both the HP Firenza and VX4/90. Running prototypes were tested before the project was abandoned due to cost and the impending merger of Vauxhall's design and engineering pool with that of Opel in Germany. Apart from its use in passenger cars, the engine was developed for marine applications, it grew popular with tuners due to its great strength and simplicity.

A 2 L version of the Slant-4 powered the eight Costin Amigos that were built between 1970 and 1972. The engine remained in production well into the 1980s for the Bedford CF van. Although arguably more technically advanced, the Slant-4 was considered less reliable than its continental GM counterpart, the Opel CIH engine; the Slant-4 was replaced by the CIH in the badge-engineered Vauxhall Cavalier Mk.1s from the mid 1970s onward, whilst the Bedford CF van lost the Slant-4 in favour of the CIH when revised in 1983. It is said that when Vauxhall unveiled its new slant-four engine at the 1966 Earls Court Motor Show its bore centers were the same as those proposed by Lotus for their new all-alloy engine. Lotus boss Colin Chapman negotiated a deal with Vauxhall to buy some of their cast-iron blocks so that development of Lotus’ own aluminum 907 engine could be sped up; the hybrid engines were called LV220 and LV240, with LV standing for Lotus/Vauxhall and the numbers standing for the reported horsepower developed by each version.

Lotus tested the hybrid engine in a Vauxhall Victor and a Vauxhall Viva GT, as well as in a converted Bedford CF van. The Lotus 900 series engine block was cast in aluminium alloy instead of iron, which made it lighter than the Slant-4; the Lotus engine used a cylinder head of light alloy that featured double overhead camshafts and four valves per cylinder. With a few modifications the Lotus head could be fitted to the Vauxhall block. Engines with Lotus heads were used in Vauxhall's dealer team race and rally programmes until the late 1970s. After experimenting with an 8-valve twin cam cylinder head, Vauxhall began development of a 16-valve, twin cam head for the Slant-4 in the early 1970s; the first test engine,'Old Number 1', was running by 1973. The cylinder head was different in detail; the 16-valve was announced for use in the Chevette 2300 HS, homologated for racing by the RAC MSA. Vauxhall's own 16-valve head had passed beyond the design stage, but was in such short supply that the rally team continued to use the Lotus heads.

To address the production shortfall Vauxhall approached Cosworth and had them produce the 400 cylinder heads neede

MSU Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics

The MSU Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics is one of the most esteemed faculties of Moscow State University regarded by students as one of the toughest faculties in the university. Although lectures in mathematics have been delivered since Moscow State University was founded in 1755, the separate mathematical and physical department was founded only in 1804; the Mathematics and Mechanics Department was founded on 1 May 1933 and comprised mathematics and astronomy departments. An extensive development of the department began after World War II. In 1953 the department moved to the new building on the Sparrow Hills and the current division in mathematics and mechanics branches was settled. In 1970, the Department of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics broke off the department due to the extensive research in computer science. Today the Mathematics and Mechanics Department comprises 14 research laboratories. Around 350 professors, assistant professors and leading researchers work at the department, some of them working in different institutions of Russian Academy of Sciences.

Around 2000 students and 450 postgraduates study at the department getting professions “Mathematics. Applied mathematics” and “Mechanics.
