New Hampshire Militia

The New Hampshire Militia was first organized in March 1680, by New Hampshire Colonial President John Cutt. The King of England authorized the Provincial President to give commissions to persons who shall be best qualified for regulating and discipline of the militia. President Cutt placed Major Richard Waldron of Dover in command of the Militia. In 1879, the Militia was designated by the state as the New Hampshire National Guard; the New Hampshire Militia served in all of the Colonial Wars, was part of expeditions that captured the Fortress of Louisbourg in 1745 and Port Royal, Nova Scotia in 1710. During the last four wars of the French and Indian Wars, the New Hampshire Militia furnished about 5,000 men for six different campaigns, including men who served with Major Robert Rogers and his Rangers. Regiments of the New Hampshire provincial soldiers were at the Battle of Lake George, the Siege of Fort William Henry, the Siege of Louisbourg, the 1758 Battle of Carillon and the fall of Fort Carillon in 1759, the Battle of the Plains of Abraham and the Battle of Sainte-Foy near Quebec, were present at the final capitulation of New France at Montreal.

They saw action in countless small battles from the Hudson River to Nova Scotia. The Militia was heavily involved in the American Revolution when it furnished men for the New Hampshire regiments in Washington's Continental Army. John Stark, an officer in Rogers' Rangers, raised the 1st New Hampshire Regiment and took it to the Siege of Boston in 1775 and fought at the Battle of Bunker Hill, along with James Reed's 3rd New Hampshire Regiment; these two regiments along with Enoch Poor's 2nd New Hampshire Regiment entered service with the Continental Army and saw action all through the war. In 1777 John Stark led a force of 1,500 New Hampshire and Vermont militia at the Battle of Bennington in a surprise attack against over 1,400 Hessian, British and Indians and won a stunning victory that helped the Continental Army win the Saratoga Campaign. Two New Hampshire militia regiments were at the Battle of Saratoga serving in Ebenezer Learned's Brigade helping to defeat General John Burgoyne. New Hampshire militia helped in Gen. John Sullivan's unsuccessful Battle of Rhode Island in 1778.

At the beginning of the American Civil War the Militia was nonexistent. The state had to raise volunteer regiments, such as the 6th New Hampshire Volunteer Infantry, to aid in the war. In 1879, New Hampshire designated the Militia as the New Hampshire National Guard prior to the mandatory name change required by the National Defense Act of 1916.

Artsy (website)

Artsy is the world's leading online platform for discovering and selling fine art. Artsy's search engine and database draw connections and map relationships among works of art. Founded by Carter Cleveland, computer science graduate from Princeton, is led by Mike Steib, former CEO of XO Group, the parent company of The Knot. Artsy aims to "expand the art market to support more artists and art in the world."Artsy has been backed by multiple investors, including Wendi Murdoch, Dasha Zhukova, Thrive Capital, Jack Dorsey, Eric Schmidt, Bob Pittman, Rich Barton, Keith Rabois, David Tisch, Chris Dixon, Peter Thiel, Charlie Cheever, Dave Morin, David Kidder, Larry Gagosian. Carter Cleveland, the son of an art historian, founded Artsy during his senior year at Princeton University and worked on the site from his dorm room. Cleveland's goal for Artsy is for the site "to be the place where every single user in the world goes to discover art online." In May 2010, Artsy participated in the New York City conference, TechCrunch Disrupt, where they competed in the Startup Battlefield and received the Yahoo!

Rookie Award! A year the team demoed Artsy at the Beyeler Foundation at Art Basel. Artsy had $50 million in venture capital, when it opened for business in 2012. Artsy is led by CEO Mike Steib. Other key executives are: Carter Cleveland and Executive Chairman Wendi Murdoch, Co-Founder, Board Director and Investor Dasha Zhukova, Advisor and Co-Founder Sebastian Cwilich, Co-founder Sandy Cass, Chief Financial Officer Dustyn Kim, Chief Revenue Officer Artsy raised around $160,000 in seed funding. Since launching, Artsy has raised a total of $100 million from individuals in the worlds of art and media, including Larry Gagosian, Wendi Murdoch, Rich Barton; the company employs over 200 employees across three continents. Artsy features over 1,000,000 works by 100,000 artists on its site, more than half are for sale. Artsy partners with over 3,000+ galleries, 850 museums and institutions, 80+ international art fairs, who publish work on the site, providing collectors and enthusiasts a central resource to learn about and purchase artwork from anywhere in the world.

In addition, Artsy partners with top auction houses, like Christie's and Sotheby's. On average, Artsy attracts 2.3 million unique visitors each month. In 2018, it was the top-ranking art marketplace on Google with visitors from more than 160 countries. Artsy is powered by The Art Genome Project — "an ongoing study of the characteristics that distinguish and connect works of art." A collaboration between art historians and engineers, The Art Genome Project draws upon art-historical scholarship and artificial intelligence to assign values to artwork based on over 1211 characteristics or "genes." These categories range from color and period to "Technique: Documentary Photography" and "Group Portrait." The Art Genome Project aims to help users uncover works of art based on personal taste and preference to facilitate discovery of art. According to Wired, Artsy "has the potential to introduce each buyer to a wide range of artists and artworks, all of them related in some way and—this is key—most of them unknown and otherwise inaccessible to any but the most knowledgeable connoisseurs."Bloomberg News reported that "ver the past nine years the New York startup has become one of the top destinations for buying and learning about art.

It has pulled off this feat by partnering with galleries and auction houses, rather than directly competing with them." In 2012, criticism around The Art Genome Project centered on "its classification system, which rubs some artists the wrong way.'I don't think what I am doing has anything to do with Cindy Sherman,' says British artist Jonathan Smith after being told the site links his work to hers via a staged-photography gene.'That sounds like something a programmer would think of.'" "there's the issue of whether art can be properly represented on the Web. "'There is something sensual about a visual object that doesn't translate online,"' says New York City-based collector Niel Frankel." Numerous publications, including Wired, The New York Observer and The Wall Street Journal have published articles about Artsy. Carter Cleveland was listed in BLOUINARTINFO's The 30-and-Under Crowd: The Art World's Most Influential Young Figures of 2012. Artsy received the "Rookie Disruptor Award" in 2010.

The Moth of Moonbi is a 1926 Australian film directed by Charles Chauvel. It was adapted from a 1924 novel by Australian author Mabel Forrest. Only part of the film survives today. Dell Ferris is a tomboy from the country town of Moonbi, loved by English head stockman Tom, she goes to the city. Dell marries Tom. Marsden Hassall as Tom Resoult Doris Ashwin as Dell Ferris Arthur Tauchert as Jack Bronson Charles O'Mara as Ferris Michael Dwyer as Rodger Down Colleen Richards as Margery Daw Billie Stokes as Josephine Jack Reed as Bill Devine Darla Townend as Little Dell Edward Lyon as Martin Brooks Charles Chauvel as aboriginal stockman After spending eighteen months in Hollywood studying the filmmaking process, Charles Chauvel returned to Queensland and formed his own production company, Australian Film Productions Ltd, he helped to secure funding by lobbying the Ipswich and Toowoomba Chambers of Commerce on the necessity of an Australian film industry. The company was formed by issuing 30,000 shares at ₤1 each.

Chauvel announced his goal in 1924: It is our intention to produce films in Queensland and wherever possible to use Queensland talent in all departments of our work. Queensland, with its excellent climate conditions, its months of fine weather, its beautiful and varied scenery is undoubtedly one of the best parts of Australia in which to produce motion pictures... We intend to film our stories with faithful regard to thc spirit and traditions of our young nation, we will present the same with the belief that there will be audience response for home-made productions which are offered through the joint efforts of Australian writers and artists. In the end the paid-up capital of the company was £7,000, the uncalled capital was £4,240. On-location filming took place in Queensland, at three primary locations: near Spicer's Peak, at Franklyn Vale cattle station, under the Sleeping Assyrian, a mountain in the Rosevale Valley; the film unit, comprising a total of eighteen members, included a bush chef and a supply of sheep and fowl.

The lead roles were played by Doris Ashwin and Marsden Hassell, who married. Chauvel escaped injury; the film was popular in Queensland however it fared less well in the Southern states. Despite this, the movie made a reported profit of £1,300 and Chauvel made another film for the company, Greenhide. Mabel Forrest was pleased with the film. On 21 December 1928, the film was the first film shown at the Majestic Picture Theatre in Malanda, Queensland; the Moth of Moonbi on IMDb Moth of Moonbi at National Film and Sound Archive

Silba-class landing ship-minelayer

The Silba class is a class of three landing ships used as minelayers, built for the Yugoslav and Croatian Navy during the 1980s and 1990s. The ships were built at the Brodogradilište specijalnih objekata shipyard in Split with slight differences in armament configuration between the last two ships. By the time the Croatian War of Independence started, one ship was in service with the JRM while another was being completed; the one in JRM service was relocated to Montenegro where it would be commissioned with the Navy of the new FR Yugoslavia. The second ship, captured unfinished was completed by Croatian forces and entered service with the HRM, followed by a third, laid down by Croatia in 1993; the two ships commissioned with the HRM remain in active service, providing assistance to civilian institutions aside from their regular military tasks. The first ship in the class is decommissioned and in reserve in the Bay of Kotor, Montenegro; the Silba class was developed by the Brodarski institut from Zagreb as a replacement for a large number of aging barge-like landing craft based on German World War II designs.

All three ships were completed at the Brodogradilište specijalnih objekata in Croatia. The first one, was commissioned with the JRM sometime between 1986 and 1990; the keel for the second ship, to be named Rab was laid down in 1990. As the Croatian War of Independence started, unfinished Rab was captured by Croatian forces, it was completed and launched as Cetina on 18 July 1992. A third and final ship was launched on 17 September 1994 as Krka; these ferry-like ships feature a roll-on/roll-off design with two loading ramps located on the bow and the stern. Measuring 49.69 m in length, they have a 10.2 m beam with a 2.6 m draft. Propulsion consists of two 1,140 kW Burmeister & Wain Alpha Diesel 10V 23L VO engines mounted on two shafts, enabling them a maximum speed of 12.5 knots and a cruising speed of 12 knots. Traveling at their cruise speed they have a range of 1,200–1,400 nautical miles with a 12-day endurance; the ships are manned by a crew of 32. The Armament configuration differs between the last one.

The interior, which features two mine rails, can be used to carry up to 152 different naval mines, six medium tanks or 300 troops with equipment, a total cargo capacity of 460 t. DBM-82 was completed with a different gun armament; the ship was completed as an auxiliary water carrier with a capacity of around 230 t of fresh water. The number of mines that DBM-82 can carry is a maximum of 114. At the start of the Croatian War of Independence DBM-241 was relocated to Montenegro where it entered service with the SR Yugoslav Navy. DBM-242, now redesignated as DBM-81 was launched as Cetina and entered service with the Croatian Navy 19 February 1992 with Ivo Raffanelli in command. For the remainder of the war, Cetina was engaged in transporting troops and equipment along the coast, including supply runs for Croatian forces during Operation Maslenica in 1993; the same year the ship participated in testing of the new MNS-M90 naval mine. DBM-82, the third and final ship of the class, was commissioned with the Croatian Navy on 9 March 1995 with Jerko Bošnjak in command.

According to publications and news reports, DBM-241 was reported operational as late as 2005. An article published in October 2012 reported. Although the advance was paid, the official handover of the ship has not happened by the time the article was published; as of March 2014, the official website of the Armed Forces of Montenegro does not list DBM-241 among its fleet: the ship is in reserve in the Bay of Kotor, opposite Đenovići. The two Silba-class in Croatian hands continue to see service the Navy Flotilla performing traditional naval tasks as well as support missions for civilian institutions such water supply and transporting firefighters. In July 2006 Krka was damaged during an overhaul at the Šibenik Shipyard. While being lowered to the sea, the winch of the syncrolift pulled out of the concrete causing the ship to fall down, creating a hole in the hull and sinking the stern. Early reports of significant damage proved to be false and the ship was repaired soon after. Out of ten crew members that were on board at the time, only one sustained minor injuries.

In 2015, Krka and Cetina were tasked with transporting Croatian Army vehicles and personnel to Spain for the NATO "Trident Juncture" exercise. The ships departed the Lora Naval Base on 11 October 2015, loaded with four Patria AMVs, two trucks, one motor vehicle and 14 soldiers scheduled to take part in the exercise. On 13 October they arrived in Catania where they rendezvoused with Andrija Mohorovičić deployed in support of Operation Triton; the two ships made another stop at Cagliari before continuing to Spain, arriving in Sagunto on 18 October after spending seven days at sea. The ships returned to the Lora Naval Base on 13 November, concluding their month long deployment during which they traversed a total of 2,700 nautical miles.
