Macedonian pronouns

A pronoun is a substitute for a noun or a noun phrase, or things mentioned or understood from the context. These are words like јас'I', мене'me', себе'himself, herself', ова'this', кој'who, which', некој'somebody', никој'nobody', сите'all', секој'everybody'. Macedonian pronouns decline for case, i.e. their function in a phrase as subject, direct object, or object of a preposition. Based on their meaning and the function in the sentence, pronouns fall into the following categories: Use of ти is limited to friends and family, is used among children. In formal usage only Вие occurs. Вие should always be capitalized. Ти, used when referring to God, should be capitalized. Interrogative pronouns refer to an unknown person, quality or quantity and agree with the noun they denote in gender and number. Personal interrogative pronouns have two cases and genitive. There are accusative and dative forms: кого and кому, respectively; the more analytical construction на кого is an optional alternative for the dative form.

They are used with nonhuman beings. Quality interrogative pronouns are used for asking one to specify the word in question, they are translated in English as what/what kind of/what sort of. There is only one interrogative pronoun for quantity — колку and it is invariant for gender and number, it is used before plural nouns to ask about their quantity, before an adjective or adverb to ask about the extent, age, etc. of something or somebody. An alternative full form, себеси, is used for emphasis. Ана ѝ ја даде нејзината книга на Марија. Ана ѝ ја даде својата книга на Марија. Macedonian by Victor Friedman, 2001, p. 29

Darkness Fell on Gotenhafen

Darkness Fell on Gotenhafen is a 1960 German drama film directed by Frank Wisbar. It dramatizes the sinking of MV Wilhelm Gustloff. Heinz Schön presents the death toll figure as high as 9,343 including 5,000 children. MV Wilhelm Gustloff was a German cruise liner laid down on 4 August 1936. Intended to be christened Adolf Hitler, she was named after Wilhelm Gustloff, the assassinated leader of Nazi Party Foreign Organisation in Switzerland, she was launched into the Elbe on 5 May 1937. The liner was constructed by Blohm & Voss, Hamburg as part of the Kraft durch Freude program to endorse low-cost voyages for the German working class, with the belief that happy workers work harder. Up to 30 luxury liners had been planned, but only two were built. Wilhelm Gustloff was the flagship, Robert Ley was her sister ship. At the outbreak of the war in 1939, the ship's original purpose came to an end, she was requisitioned by the Kriegsmarine and converted to a hospital ship until 20 November 1940 with the designation Lazarettschiff D, but was referred to as Lazarettschiff "Wilhelm Gustloff".

After that, she became a floating barracks for around 1,000 men of the 2nd U-boat Training Division in the port of Gotenhafen. Wilhelm Gustloff was moored there for more than four years until 1945 before she was put back into service as part of Operation Hannibal. Commenced on 23 January 1945, Operation Hannibal was a German naval action under the initiative of Grand Admiral Karl Doenitz to evacuate German civilians and military personnel from the Baltic as the Soviet Red Army advanced. Doenitz asserted that the operation was to evacuate as many lives as possible away from the already-begun Soviet reprisals. Ships of all kinds took part in this massive rescue operation, which ceased in May 1945 as the war ended. At 1230 hours on 30 January 1945, Wilhelm Gustloff left Gotenhafen for Kiel. By 1500 hours she had reached the open sea, it was snowing, with a temperature of − 20 strong wind of 30 knots. According to the ship's official records, 6,000 to 7,000 people were registered. In fact, more than 10,500 people were on board, exceeding her designed capacity by about 8,650.

The ship was'Noah's Ark' for those escaping the advancing Soviet Red Army. At 2108 hours, only about 30 kilometres after her departure, she was torpedoed by the Soviet submarine S-13, commanded by Captain Aleksandr Marinesko. Before sinking Wilhelm Gustloff, Marinesko was facing a court martial for drunkenness. Four torpedoes were prepared and each had one nickname:'For Motherland','For Leningrad','For the Soviet People', and'For Stalin'; the first three were launched and struck the port side of the ship. After being struck, the ship listed to port. Within an hour, she sank 45 metres beneath the Baltic Sea. 9,343 lives were lost, up to half of them children. This remains the worst single ship sinking in history and is dubbed "the German Titanic." The number of casualties is six times greater than that of Titanic. 1,215 were picked up by eight German ships. S-13 launched two torpedoes at one of them without scoring any hits. On 10 February 1945, S-13 sank another evacuation ship SS Steuben, carrying about 5,000 people where only 650 survived.

In the end, only about 10 percent of the passengers survived, because many of the lifeboats were unusable, the crew essential for lowering them were either trapped or dead by the first torpedo impact. Additionally, overcrowding that led to chaos trapped many passengers below decks, the frigid waters of the Baltic Sea diminished the chance of survival for the floating survivors. Wilhelm Gustloff was a legitimate target, her sinking was not regarded as a war crime, because she was no longer a cruise liner nor a hospital ship, but had been converted as a floating barrack or accommodation ship for 1,000 members the 2nd U-boat Training Division. Additionally, she was armed with anti-aircraft guns and was transporting over 1,000 military personnel.

Jim Phillips (cricketer)

James Phillips was a Victorian first-class cricketer and Test match umpire. He did not play his first first-class match until 1885/86, altogether played 124 matches for Canterbury and Victoria between 1885/86 and 1898/99 as a right-hand batsman and right-arm medium bowler, he scored 1827 runs at an average of 12.59 with a highest score of 110 not out, took 355 wickets at an average of 20.00 with best figures of 8 for 69. Seven times he took 10 or more wickets in a match, he took 50 catches. As a player and umpire he travelled following the cricket seasons. Middlesex valued his contribution so that he was given a benefit match, Australia v. Middlesex, in 1899, he was able to help Australian players, such as Albert Trott find jobs and play cricket in England. For a while he played first-class cricket for Canterbury. Phillips umpired, his first match was between Australia and England in Melbourne on 21 March 1885 to 25 March 1885, comfortably won by England by an innings and 98 runs. His colleague was George Hodges.

He umpired 13 Test matches in Australia, including all 5 in the 1894/95 and the 1897/98 series against England. He umpired 11 matches in England against Australian touring sides, including all 3 in 1896, 4 out of 5 in 1905, his last matches were the 5 played in South Africa against England in 1905/06. Thus he can claim to be the first genuinely "international" Test umpire. According to Jack Pollard,'Dimboola Jim' Phillips was "a fearless umpire, responsible for stamping out throwing around the turn of the century … establishing an international reputation for acumen and honesty." Amongst the bowlers called for throwing by Phillips were Australian Test players Ernie Jones and Tom McKibbin. Jones was first no-balled in a match between South Australia and the visiting English side in 1897/98. Phillips again no-balled him once in the 2nd Test of that series, Jones thus becoming the first bowler to be called for throwing in a Test match; the selectors omitted Jack Saunders from the 1905 team to tour England because it was feared that Phillips would no-ball him for throwing.

Wisden blamed English umpires for the problem, claiming that "Australian bowlers never threw in England until we had shown them over and over again that could be broken with impunity." Phillips' actions, including the no-balling of the English amateur champion C. B. Fry, led to a meeting of County captains in 1900, which recommended that nine regular bowlers not be used in the following season. In the first Test match of 1897/98 Phillips gave. McLeod was bowled by a no-ball but, did not hear the call, he left the wicket, believing he was out, a fieldsman pulled out a stump and appealed. Under present-day Laws McLeod would be given'not out' as he had "left his wicket under a misapprehension that he out".. When smoke from bushfires made visibility difficult at Melbourne in the 4th Test of the 1897/98 series, the English captain claimed that play should cease because of bad light. Umpire Phillips was unimpressed, saying that "if that light was bad cricket had better be given up at Bramall Lane and Old Trafford."

An English player remarked that Australia was the only place where the country was set alight just to win a cricket match. On retirement, Phillips became a mining engineer and is reputed to have made a fortune in North America.
