Wake/Lift is the second full-length album by post-metal band Rosetta. The album was released on October 2, 2007 through Translation Loss Records on CD, with a limited-edition double LP prepared for late 2008; this album is the first to not be engineered by the band. It is Rosetta's first to be recorded to analog tape; the production on Wake/Lift is more refined than the band's previous works. Months before the album's release, the band had been performing "Red in Tooth and Claw" at live show as far back as April 2007; the track "Wake" was posted on the MySpace for Translation Loss Records in a low-quality format on August 17, 2007, again on Rosetta's own MySpace on August 19, 2007. A component disc, entitled The Cleansing Undertones of Wake/Lift, was released alongside Wake/Lift, it contains a collection of ambient samples used by Armine. It is, not meant to be synchronized with Wake/Lift. In September 2008, the album was pressed on 180 gram vinyl, it comes in three limited-edition color combinations.

It was released 11 Nov 2008 Guitarist J. Matthew Weed has stated that the band has taken on a more melodic and experimental sound. Rather than sounding like the metal style of The Galilean Satellites, Wake/Lift falls more into the post-rock genre while retaining space rock and hardcore influences. Lyrically and thematically, the album deals much less with astronomical concepts and is more influenced by vocalist Mike Armine's experiences as a teacher, he states, Temet nosce is Latin for "know thyself".

Mirror Mirror (Diana Ross song)

"Mirror, Mirror" is a 1981 rock-styled hit song recorded by American superstar Diana Ross, released as her second single on the RCA label. The song, written by Dennis Matkosky and Michael Sembello, produced by Ross herself, was the second release from her Platinum-certified album, Why Do Fools Fall in Love; the song talked of a love lost that the singer was going through and her deliberately asking herself while looking in the mirror why she allowed the love "to fall" apart, referencing the Wicked Queen's chant to the Magic Mirror in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: "Mirror, mirror on the wall". "Mirror Mirror" became another smash for Diana, reaching #2 on the Soul chart and peaking at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 It became her second top 10 hit after leaving her longtime label, Motown, in the summer of 1981. The music video was played on BET but rejected by MTV, it showcased the glamorous diva lip-synching the song and during the break, she danced with the video dividing her in double vision as she spun around.

Despite the rudimentary production values, it was an early BET favorite. However, it was conspicuously left off her best-selling VHS - and DVD - compilation "Visions Of Diana Ross". "Mirror Mirror" is notable as one of the few songs Diana sung both lead and background vocals. "Mirror Mirror" was performed during Diana Ross' iconic live concert in front of 800,000 people, Diana Ross Live in Central Park. "Mirror Mirror" was performed on her recent 2010 concert tour. It was the first time.

Mayfield Park, Southampton

Mayfield Park is a recreational area straddling Woolston and Weston in Southampton, England. The stream that runs through the park is the boundary between the two districts of modern Southampton; the park is maintained by Southampton City Council. It was part of the Chamberlayne family's Weston Grove estate. Much of the rest of the Weston Grove estate has been used to develop the post-war suburb of Weston. Mayfield Park survives because it was split from the Weston Grove estate in the nineteenth century, becoming the Mayfield Estate; the park straddles a stream which runs from nearby Millers pond, through a valley within the park draining the higher ground of the Hampshire Basin on the East of Southampton into Southampton Water. In 1762, Walter Taylor built a water-powered wood-working mill alongside this stream. Millers pond was formed to provide a reservoir to supply this mill; the mill site was rebuilt as a private house in the 19th century, but this suffered bomb damage during World War II and was abandoned.

The site has subsequently been excavated by Southampton City Council's Archeological Unit. The park was part of William Chamberlayne's Weston Grove Estate. In 1810, Chamberlayne erected a memorial to Whig politician Charles James Fox; this takes the form of a Portland Stone Obelisk, situated on the highest point of the estate where a windmill once stood. Chamberlayne was to become MP for the Southampton constituency, from 1818–1830. In 1854, Thomas Chamberlayne sold part of the estate to Col. Robert Wright, who built Mayfield House there, establishing the Mayfield Estate. Col Wright subsequently dedicated the Obelisk to two of his favourite horses, who are buried in the park. From 1889 to 1913, Mayfield House and the estate was owned by Granville Augustus William Waldegrave, 3rd Lord Radstock, he had worked as a missionary in Russia in the 1870s. During his tenure of the Mayfield Estate Lord Radstock added the inscription to the Obelisk, which reads "The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof – Psalms 24.1" On the death of the 3rd Lord Radstock, in 1913, the title and the Mayfield estate passed to Granville George Waldegrave, 4th Baron Radstock.

During World War I, Mayfield House was used to nurse wounded soldiers, serving as an annexe to the Royal Victoria Military Hospital at Netley. The consequences of World War I meant. A generation of young men were lost in the conflict, including the younger heirs to these estates and many of the men who worked in them. On the death of the 4th Lord Radstock, in 1937, the title was inherited by his 70-year-old brother Montague Waldegrave, 5th Baron Radstock; as the family was no longer able to maintain the Mayfield estate, it was sold to Southampton City Council. A covenant in the 4th Barons will requires it to be kept as an open spaceDuring World War II, displaced residents of Southampton were temporarily housed in Mayfield House; this building had 40 rooms, 23 of which were bedroomsIn 1944, the area was used to assemble troops and equipment during the build-up to D-Day. Southampton City Council used part of the Weston Grove Estate to meet the demand for new housing after World War II, creating the Weston Housing Estate.

Weston Park Boys and Girls schools were built in 1957. The title died out with the 5th Lord Radstock in 1953. Mayfield House was demolished a few years in 1956. Chamberlayne Road, Radstock Road, Wrights Hill, Gordon Terrace, Tankerville Road, Weston Grove Road, Obelisk Road and The Obelisk public house can all be found locally to Mayfield Park. An annexe to Woolston School, situated in Portsmouth Road, was named Mayfield House; this building was not the original house on the Mayfield Estate, it shared its name. The Chamberlayne Leisure Centre was opened in April 2000. Weston Park Boys school has been renamed the Grove Park Business and Enterprise College and more Oasis Academy Mayfield Weston Park Girls school has been renamed the Chamberlayne Park School and more Chamberlayne College for the Arts.
