Pactiv

Pactiv is a manufacturer and distributor of food packaging and foodservice products, supplying packers, supermarkets, restaurants and foodservice outlets across North America. Pactiv’s roots stretch back to 1959, when Central Fibre, American Boxboard, Ohio Boxboard merged to form Packaging Corporation of America; those companies bear little resemblance to the company today, as they operated paper mills that produced cardboard boxes. Tenneco Inc. purchased PCA in 1965, during the next 34 years the company undertook a number of acquisitions, including the acquisition of Mobil Plastics Company in 1995 and Amoco Foam Products Company in 1996, which formed the basis of the current Pactiv business. As a result, its product portfolio expanded to include aluminum, clear plastic, foam products, molded fiber and pressware; the company name has changed numerous times, from PCA to Tenneco Packaging Inc. to Pactiv Corporation, when it was spun off by Tenneco, becoming an independent company. Since 1999, the company has pursued a number of strategic mergers and acquisitions, each with an eye toward strengthening its position in the foodservice packaging industry, including adding Jaguar, Prairie Packaging, PWP Industries.

In 2010, Pactiv was acquired by Rank Group Ltd, became part of Reynolds Group Holdings Limited, a global manufacturer and supplier of consumer food and beverage packaging and storage products. Since the Rank acquisition, the company continued to grow, incorporating the legacy Reynolds Foodservice business to Pactiv, acquiring Dopaco in 2011, adding International Tray Pads and Packaging and Interplast Packaging in 2012, Spirit, a manufacturer of foodservice products including cups, cutlery and stirrers, in 2013

Itsumade

Itsumade is an eerie bird featured in the Japanese collection of yōkai pictures, the Konjaku Gazu Zoku Hyakki by Toriyama Sekien published in 1779. Its picture has the explanatory text, "as explained more in the Taiheiki, Hiroari shot the eerie bird that cries,'itsumade itsumade'", so it depicts the odd bird that appears in the Taiheiki, volume 12, "Hiroari Shot the Eerie Bird". According to the Taiheiki, around the fall of 1334, an epidemic illness was causing many deaths and every night, an eerie bird appeared on top of the Shishinden crying "itsumade itsumade" causing great fear; the nobility thought back to how the master of arrows Minamoto no Yorimasa slayed the nue and made a request to Okijirō Zaemon Hiroari who splendidly shot down the eerie bird with a kabura-ya. It is said that the eerie bird had a human-like face, a curved beak, saw-like teeth, a snake-like body, talons as sharp as swords, a wingspan of about 1 jō and 6 shaku. In the Taiheiki, the bird is written to be the "eerie bird" with no distinctive name.

The "Itsumade" name in the Konjaku Gazu Zoku Hyakki is considered to be a naming Sekien made upon illustrating this story in the Konjaku Gazu Zoku Hyakki on the basis of the bird's cry. In various Edo Period illustrations of battle, this bird was depicted as a monstrous bird or black cloud in order to convey the idea, but among them none to be found that use the name "Itsumade." Yōkai-related literature starting in Shōwa began to give the reading "Itsumadeten." They sometimes come introduced with explanatory text that say things such as how this eerie bird stops nearby the corpses of those who died from battle or starvation and cry "itsumade itsumade" meaning "until when will this corpse be left here?" or how this eerie bird is the vengeful spirit of those who died that way, turned into a bird.

Bodies (EP)

Bodies is the debut extended play by Australian singer songwriter Celia Pavey. It was announced on 4 August 2014, along with a tour of Australia's east coast; the EP was released on 29 August 2014. In an interview leading up to the EPs release, Pavey said. I write a lot about the people in my life. Most of my songs are about love or the habits people share.”The EP was on-track to chart within the Australian ARIA top 40 but did not feature on the chart that following week. Riley Ackley, the Promotional Direct from The Oswegonian gave the EP 4.5 out of 5 saying the EP "is a beautiful four track debut. Focusing on acoustics and Pavey’s angel-like melodies, each song off of “Bodies” will carry listeners into a day dream trance." Adding, "Overall, Bodies is near perfection. As an EP, its glossy set-up paired with Pavey’s celestial voice makes it one of the most prominent EP releases of the year. Celia Pavey's Bodies is proof. Other artists beware, because they’ll soon pale in comparison." Lizotte's said "This studio introduction to Celia's honest and adventurous folk songwriting sweeps through that flat, ghostly landscape and into sonically lush territory" adding "Celia sings of young loss and desire with a voice that has captured international attention."

In a review of the EP and the live tour, Chloe Webb of Reverb Street Press said "Pavey has found her place musically, a meticulous combination of rambling folk and easy listening indie-pop." "Bodies" – 3:20 "Shadow" – 3:42 "Red" – 4:38 "Laura" – 4:02

1970 Nebraska Cornhuskers football team

The 1970 Nebraska Cornhuskers football team represented the University of Nebraska–Lincoln in the 1970 NCAA University Division football season. The team played their home games in Memorial Stadium in Lincoln; the Huskers went 11–0–1 to win the first of two consecutive national championships. The Huskers started the season at #9 and tied #3 USC in Los Angeles in the second game of the season. After winning their next nine games, including all seven in the Big 8, Nebraska was ranked third in the nation entering the 1971 Orange Bowl against #5 LSU of the SEC. Top-ranked Texas and #2 Ohio State both lost their bowl games earlier in the day and a 17-12 Nebraska victory that night in Miami gave the Huskers their first national title. Through the 1973 season, the final UPI coaches poll was released in early December, before the bowl games. In 1970 it picked Texas as national champion on December 8, before the Longhorns' 24-11 loss to Notre Dame in the 1971 Cotton Bowl in Dallas on New Year's Day. Notre Dame finished second to Nebraska in the final AP writers poll, released after the bowls in early January.

The 1970 Cornhuskers championship season was notable for Devaney's rotation of two quarterbacks - Van Brownson and Jerry Tagge - in every game throughout the season. Wake Forest hit first with a field goal thanks to a Nebraska fumble, but by the half it was the Cornhuskers 28-5; the Demon Deacons would go on to win the ACC title. Nebraska entered the game as a two-touchdown underdog to a USC squad fresh off a 42-21 whipping of Alabama in Birmingham, but never trailed the Trojans during the course of the game; each team traded touchdowns, each team missed opportunities for the win, right up to USC's incomplete 50-yard pass on the last play of the game. Nebraska owned the day. Bob Devaney's record against the Big 10 was extended to 9-0 as the Cornhuskers had little trouble with Minnesota after running ahead 28-10 before the half. Nebraska scored only 7 points in the first half, Missouri matched it before the half; the subsequent defensive battle continued through into the 4th quarter before the Cornhuskers broke away with an additional 14 points, one from a 48-yard punt return touchdown.

Nebraska was surprised to find themselves behind 10-20 with 10 minutes left in the 1st half, but battled back to take the lead with two more touchdowns before the break, never let Kansas score again as they cruised to a 41-20 final. Nebraska piled up 65 points, its highest total since 1922, held Oklahoma State to just 64 ground yards as the Cornhuskers made short work of the Cowboys. Nebraska pulled out in front right away with a 12-0 1st quarter lead, but stubborn Colorado fought back and trailed the Cornhuskers by only 13-15 in the 4th quarter - after missing a 2-point conversion that would have tied the game - before Nebraska decided to stop the uprising with two touchdowns in the last 10 minutes to pull away; the game was not as close as the score indicates, as Iowa State put up two late touchdowns against Nebraska reserves in the 4th quarter after the Cornhuskers had run up a 54-17 lead with 5 minutes remaining to play. Kansas State came to Lincoln with hopes of a Big 8 title opportunity, but they were not prepared for the domination that Nebraska would show them in a convincing defeat.

The Wildcats managed only two touchdowns, one of which came with 5 minutes remaining in the 4th against the Nebraska reserves. At one point in the game, the Cornhuskers exploded for 27 points in less than 4 minutes, pushing their lead out to 51-7. Nebraska locked up their first unbeaten regular season since 1965 by coming from behind twice to get the win over stubborn Oklahoma, it wasn't until 7:42 remained in the 4th quarter that Nebraska pulled ahead by a touchdown to settle the final score. Third-ranked Nebraska jumped to a 10-0 lead in the first quarter and lead 10-3 at halftime, but #5 LSU fought back to make a game of it, pulling ahead on a field goal at the end of the 3rd quarter to get to 12-10. With over eight minutes remaining, Jerry Tagge jumped over the pile from the 1-yard line for the game's final points, the Blackshirts held on the rest of the way to preserve the win. Top-ranked Texas and #2 Ohio State both lost their bowl games earlier in the day, which allowed the Huskers to claim their first national championship.
