SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Associação Atlética Luziânia

Associação Atlética Luziânia known as Luziânia, is a Brazilian football team from Luziânia, Goiás state. Founded in 1926, with the name of AA Luziana because the town was called Santa Luzia, having changed his name in 1945 for Luziânia and the club became known as Associação Atlética Luziânia; the main curiosity about the Club is their affiliation to the Football Association of Federal District, not the Football Association of Goiás state. The explanation for this fact is related to distances that the club would have to go through to compete in the Campeonato Goiano — from Luziânia to Goiânia are less than 200 km and the distance from the Brasília is only 70. Luziânia play; the stadium has a maximum capacity of 21,564 people. Campeonato Brasiliense: 22014, 2016 Official Site

The Jehol Diary

The Jehol Diary is the work of the Joseon dynasty silhak scholar Bak Jiwon, written in classical Chinese. Bak known by his pen name of Yeon'am, made an extensive tour of what was the northern territory of the Chinese Qing Empire, including Shenyang and Rehe Province, in 1780, in the company of his cousin. Bak's cousin had been dispatched to the Qing imperial court by the Joseon king Jeongjo to attend the 70th birthday celebrations of the Qianlong Emperor; as the title suggests, the Yeolha Ilgi takes the form of a travelogue. However, the scope of the diary is vast, covering such disparate topics as history, natural surroundings, politics and poetry. Both the scope of the work and the quality of its writing have earned it a place as a masterpiece and an important source for Chinese and Korean historians. A partial English translation was published in 2010 under the title The Jehol Diary; the Yeolha Ilgi is divided into twenty-six chapters in ten volumes. The chapter headings are as follows: Prologue This is a 15-day record from the Yalu River, which shows interest in the welfare of the use of ligature and bricks.

Both players were on loan to the Philippine-Hapee toothpaste training squad during the season's first offing. Last year's Commissioner's Cup Best Import Tony Lang came back and teamed up with fellow returnee Julius Nwosu to help Batang Red Bull retained the title they won last season; the Thunder reached the finals against Text Phone Pals. After four games and the series tied at two games apiece, Lang was accused of game-fixing and was replaced by NBA veteran Sean Lampley. Batang Red Bull won their second PBA title in three years by defeating the Talk'N Text Phone Pals in seven games; the Thunder overcame a 2-3 series deficit by taking the last two games to defend the Commissioner's Cup crown.

California, Falkirk

California is a former pit village in the Falkirk council area of Scotland. It lies between Shieldhill and Avonbridge on the uplands which form the southern edge of the council area; the population record in the United Kingdom 2001 census was 702, down from 747 in 1991. Crown Office precognitions indicate that ‘California Row’ existed by 1860; the origin of the name California is unclear. Local tradition suggests that'black gold' was discovered in Muiravonside at the time of the California Gold Rush of 1848-1855. While a popular myth, it does not hold up to historical scrutiny. There is a long history of coal mining in the area, in 1832 coal from nearby Blackbraes was being sold and marketed as'Blackbraes Diamond'); the emergence of the settlement may be contemporaneous with the Gold Rush, however, as reflected in the following housing report of 1911, which claimed "The village of California in South East Stirlingshire, was built in 1849, no doubt took its name from the region of the gold boom at that time, just as a modern colliery in the same part of the county was christened Klondyke by the miners - and I have heard two or three houses attached to it go by the name of Dawson City."

California grew on the common muir of Whitesiderigg between Redding Muir. Throughout the 18th century the area was grazing land for cattle coming from the south on the way to the Falkirk Tryst; the settlement emerged in the 19th century as a result of intensive coal mining. Colliers had been settling on Whitesiderig Muir throughout the early nineteenth century on land claimed by the Duke of Hamilton. Surrounded as it was by collieries at Blackbraes, Gardrum and Redding, the settlement's location was determined by its proximity to the collieries of the area. By 1860 California Row had come into existence and was owned by James Nimmo & Company, owners of the nearby Blackbraes Colliery. Investment by the Duke of Hamilton and the Carron Company in coal mining at Gardrum and Redding saw an influx of population in response to the growth of employment opportunities within the mining industry. In this period California was bisected by the Duke of Hamilton's Mineral Railway, built to move coal from the number 16 Gardrum Pit to the Union Canal, the main colliery complex at Redding and the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway.

The line ran through California, along present day Princes Street past California Row down Queen’s Drive and on to the Redding Muir. In 1847 the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway built the Shieldhill Branch, subsequently acquired by the North British Railway; this became the Gardrum Branch and the Blackbraes Branch. In 1871 the NBR completed the link to Gardrum Moss and the private line of the Duke of Hamilton, thereby giving California a freight link to Edinburgh and Glasgow by way of the Slamannan Junction Railway at Manuel; the Blackbraes Branch was acquired by the London North Eastern Railway in the Grouping of 1923. In 1918, accounts of living conditions in California were presented by the Stirling Miners' Union to the Royal Commission on Housing, critical of housing in East Stirlingshire pit villages. Among their objections to the conditions in California were that there were'No washhouses, no coal-houses; the village ash-pits were cleaned monthly and the mineral railway, which ran through the village, was used as a drain and sewer.

Nonetheless, this was seen as an improvement on the previous situation, where the inhabitants resorted to fields and hedgerows and the village was marked by middens. The conditions described in these reports contributed to the provision of new housing in the 1930s. By 1931, Stirling County Council were in the process of providing 12 three-apartment houses. Mining remained the main source of employment. Nonetheless, working conditions in the nearby collieries were still hazardous. For example, Andrew Anderson and his son William, of California, were killed in the Redding Pit Disaster of 1923; the source of the water which flooded the pit was traced to California and the diversion of a small burn there. Employment was provided at a series of peat extraction works at the nearby Gardum Moss; the Peat Moss Litter works at Gardrum, were demolished by the 1930s. However, in the 1950s this site was used as an experimental peat drying facility, operated by a professor of Glasgow University; until the 1990s the site was worked by William Sinclair Horticulture.

California is residential and contains California Primary School, built in 1914 for miners' children at the request of Grangemouth Parish School Board and a newsagent. The village is represented by the Braes Area Forum. In recent years Falkirk Council has tried to rebrand California as'The Sunshine Village' with the placing of a sign in the centre of the village to that effect. Quoits and football have been popular in California; the 1920s was remarkable for California Celtic FC, winners of the Polmont and District Amateur Cup in season 1919-20 and who took the unusual step of changing their name to California Rangers after financial difficulties forced them to reapply to the Polmont and District Amateur League under a new name. A team was set up in 1961. California is represented in the Stirling and District Amateur Football League by California Star FC and California FC.
