Norroy and Ulster King of Arms

Norroy and Ulster King of Arms is the King of Arms at the College of Heralds with jurisdiction over England north of the Trent and Northern Ireland. The two offices of Norroy and Ulster were separate, but were merged in 1943. Norroy King of Arms is the older office, there being a reference as early as 1276 to a "King of Heralds beyond the Trent in the North"; the name Norroy is derived from the French nort roi meaning'north king'. The office of Ulster King of Arms was established in 1552 by King Edward VI to replace the older post of Ireland King of Arms, which had lapsed in 1487. Ulster King of Arms was not part of the College of Arms and did not fall under the jurisdiction of the Earl Marshal, being the heraldic authority for the Kingdom of Ireland, he was King of Arms of the Order of St Patrick. Norroy and Ulster King of Arms now holds this position, though no new knights of that Order have been created since 1936, the last surviving knight died in 1974. Heraldic matters in the Republic of Ireland are now handled by the office of the Chief Herald of Ireland.

The arms of The new office of Norroy and Ulster King of Arms were devised in 1980 based on elements from the arms of the two former offices. They are blazoned: Quarterly Argent and Or a Cross Gules on a Chief per pale Azure and Gules a Lion passant guardant Or crowned with an open Crown between a Fleur-de-lis and a Harp Or; the current Norroy and Ulster King of Arms is Timothy Duke, who succeeded Sir Henry Paston-Bedingfeld in 2014.

Silivrikap─▒ Ice Skating Hall

Silivrikapi Ice Skating Hall, full name Silivrikapi Skating Hall and Recreation Center, shortly Silivrikapı Ice Rink, is an indoor ice skating and ice hockey arena located at Silivrikapı neighborhood of Fatih district in Istanbul, Turkey. It was opened in September 2009; the arena consists of an Olympic-size rink of 1,740 m2 with a seating capacity of 900 people, another one of 600 m2 for 200 spectators used as training rink. Covering an area of 8,950 m2, the construction of the complex cost 30 million. Asked by the Turkish Ice Skating Federation, the Metropoiitan Municipality of Istanbul planned to build an ice rink in 1989; the district municipality of Fatih allocated the current site for the building of the venue. However, the government was reluctant to provide the funds required; the planning and the works proceeded only slow since the project proved to be difficult due to lack of technical know-how about the construction of an ice rink. Shortly before the completion of the construction, a major earthquake in 1999 devastated parts of Istanbul.

Due to an expertise, the building was declared unsafe. The structure was demolished, the project was abandoned. Years after, the project to build an ice rink resumed with pressure from the ice skating community and financial support from the government. In 2007, the construction of a new ice skating venue began at the same site in Silivrikapı, completed in September 2009. Shortly after its opening, the venue hosted International Skating Union's Junior Grand Prix of Figure Skating event. Silivrikapı Ice Skating Hall hosts ice hockey clubs of Istanbul, which carried out their trainings in the past at the Galleria Ice Rink, a small size ice rink in a shopping mall not far from the Silivrikapı Arena. 15th Junior Grand Prix Bosphorus October 14–18, 2009 2010 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships – Division III January 4–10, 2010 2016 IIHF World Championship Division III March 31 – April 6, 2016 Walls of Constantinople, Silivrikapı is a gate of the old city walls in the west, Abdi İpekçi Arena City bus lines 93, 93C, 93M and 93T serve the venue

Hook Nose

This is the article on the Northern Suhtai, Northern Cheyenne warrior who died at the Battle of Beecher Island 1868 Roman Nose known as Hook Nose, was a Native American of the Northern Cheyenne. He is considered to be one of, if not the greatest and most influential warriors during the Plains Indian War of the 1860s. Born during the prosperous days of the fur trade in the 1820s, he was called môséškanetsénoonáhe as a youth, he took the warrior name Wokini, which the whites rendered as Roman Nose. Considered invincible in combat, this fierce warrior distinguished himself in battle to such a degree that the U. S. military mistook him for the Chief of the entire Cheyenne nation. Following the Sand Creek Massacre in November 1864, Hook Nose became a principal figure among his people, leading retaliatory strikes against Euro-American settlements at the Battle of Julesburg along the Platte Road and Powder River regions of south-central Wyoming and in the Platte valley of Nebraska, western Kansas, eastern Colorado.

The Native American author and physician Charles A. Eastman wrote of Hook Nose that, "Perhaps no other warrior attacked more emigrants along the Oregon Trail between 1860–1868."Contrary to popular myth, Hook Nose was never a chief, nor a leader of any of the six Cheyenne military societies. However, known to all plains Indians as a great warrior, the acknowledged leader during combat, Hook Nose's reputation spread among the whites who credited him with initiating most hostilities between the Cheyenne and U. S military. A member of the Crooked Lance Warrior Society, Hook Nose continually refused seats among the Cheyenne Chiefs and headsmen, never held a position of authority within his tribe. Physically imposing in stature, there are several historical references to Hook Nose's flamboyant, intimidating personality and battle prowess. Isaac Coates, General Winfield S. Hancock's surgeon, observed a verbal confrontation between Hancock and Hook Nose outside Fort Larned in April 1867. Coates wrote in his journal.

He is quite six feet in height, finely formed with muscular limbs. His appearance, decidedly military, on this occasion so, since he wore the uniform of a General in the Army. A seven-shooting Spencer carbine hung at the side of his saddle, four large Navy revolvers stuck in his belt, a bow strung with arrows, were grasped in his left hand, thus armed and mounted on a fine horse, he was a good representative of the God of War. Following the implementation of the Little Arkansas Treaty in 1865, Hook Nose moved south, pledging to assist his friends, Bull Bear, Grey Beard, the Cheyenne Dog Soldiers, defend their ancestral hunting grounds along the Smoky Hill River and within the Republican Valley, he was killed by American soldiers during the Battle of Beecher Island on September 17, 1868, while attempting to charge the island in the Arikaree River, annihilate General Forsyth's command. He was known as "Roman Nose" among the Americans; some of his other aliases were Arched Nose, Woo-kay-nay. Hook Nose was known by his peers as being willing to protect his people.

Hook Nose was known as a warrior with many bold tactics to fight against his enemies. Hook Nose was known to be a spiritual individual and practiced traditional Cheyenne medicine. Hook Nose and his peers believed it was this medicine that protected him and made him such a great warrior. Hook Nose was a Northern Suhtai, a band within the Northern Cheyenne tribe. A common mistake is to confuse him with a supposed son of the Minniconjou Lakota Sioux Lone Horn and brother of Spotted Elk and Touch the Clouds called Roman Nose, he died during the Battle at Beecher Island in 1868. "He had refused a chieftaincy when young, on the grounds that he spent the major portion of his time in battle rather than in council". Although Hook Nose never accepted the role of chief, many of his peers respected him as a leader and protector of his people and their resources. "Roman Nose, was a leader of Indian warriors and a member of the crooked Lance Society of the Cheyenne Indian Tribe". Hook Nose's intentions might have been to protect his people.

"Roman Nose, the fierce Dog Soldier Warrior, was considered a'bad' Indian. He wanted the white man evicted from the plains, his lance meant to sweep the lands clean of whites fences, houses and the'iron horse'". Hook Nose's leadership, battle tactics, spirituality are a few things that made him known to many. Although he died young, Hook Nose left an impact on the west during his time. Hook Nose's battle tactics and leadership skills were not only known by his tribe, but by other people who encountered him. "His bravery came and spotless. Witnesses of Hook Nose's warfare talked about his tactics and leadership abilities. "A common battle tactic of his was to ride up and down the line of army troops within rifle range, getting them to discharge their weapons and waste their ammunition." Hook Nose used deadly and malicious tactics to protect himself, his people, his culture. "Roman Nose was a prominent Southern Cheyenne warrior best remembered for his key role in the ongoing battle against white advancement in the west throughout the 1860s".

Hook Nose did not accept the idea that the west was expand

Cajem├ę

Cajemé / Kahe'eme and baptized José María Bonifacio Leyba Pérez, was a prominent Yaqui military leader who lived in the Mexican state of Sonora from 1835 to 1887. José María Bonifacio Leyba Perez was born May 14, 1835, at Pesiou, Sonora known as Villa de Pitic called Hermosillo, in honor of José María González de Hermosillo, hero of the insurgency in the Mexican War of Independence against Spain. Cajemé's foremost biographer, Ramón Corral, stated in his published biography of Cajemé that he was born in 1837; this date has been used by many other writers since then. However, the baptismal record shows this to be incorrect, that Cajemé was born two years earlier. Ramón Corral's initial series of biographical newspaper articles on Cajemé appeared in Sonora's official state newspaper, La Constitución. In the articles, José María Leyba's father is properly identified as Fernando Leiva. In the articles, José's father is called "Francisco," an error on the part of the typesetter in publishing the newspaper articles.

This name has mistakenly continued to be used in publications since then. Corral states that Fernando was born at Huirivis and his mother, Juana María Peres, Corral says was born at Potam, Sonora; the historic record shows Fernando was born January 18, 1798, at Hermosillo, Intendencia de Arizpe, Nueva España, Juana was born February 24, 1815 at Hermosillo, Intendencia de Arizpe, Nueva España, facts supported by their recorded baptismal records. At the age of 14, José accompanied his father Fernando, many other Yaqui people from Sonora, during the 1849 "Gold Rush" to Upper California; the boy and his father returned to Sonora about two years later. José seems to have learned English at that time, as well as having his first experience in defending himself against armed conflict. In spite of statements to the contrary, his father Fernando evidently did well in the gold fields, as José was enrolled in an exclusive private school, the only school at the time in Guaymas, one of only 20 schools in the State of Sonora in the 1850s.

This was the Colegio Sonora operated by Prefect of Guaymas. José subsequently learned to write Spanish. Corral states that Cajemé was 16 to 18 years of age during his time attending school, supporting the actual 1835 year of his birth. José María Leiva had his first taste of military battle in 1854, while serving with the "Urbanos," the local militia of Guaymas, organized by his teacher, Cayetano Navarro; this occurred when a plot to seize control of Sonora was carried out under the leadership of Count Gaston de Raousset-Boulbon, who had two years earlier tried to seized the city of Hermosillo by force, had been repelled in that attempt after they had captured Hermosillo. At 14:30 hours on July 13, 1854, the battle began, with the Count's forces attacking the defenders of the Guaymas town square; the attackers numbered more than 350 French and Chileans under the Count's leadership. After fighting the Mexican forces for about two hours, the invaders began to retreat. After seeing all of the men that Raousset-Boulbon had lost in the fighting, the French vice-consul, Joseph Calvo and requested his intervention to make peace.

Calvo promised protection to all who took refuge under his flag, but hesitated for some time before extending this to include Raousset. Under the command of General José María Yáñez, the Urbanos and the other Mexican forces in Guaymas were victorious. Raousset-Boulbon surrendered his army; the surrender took place at 6 pm the same day, giving 313 prisoners being counted among them Count Raousset-Boulbon. The Mexican Army collected 310 rifles, 10 shotguns, 7 swords, 6 flags, a campaign banner and a forge; the losses suffered by both sides included 48 dead and 78 injured foreigners, with 19 dead and 57 wounded Mexican patriots. Gaston Rausset-Boulbon was sentenced to death; the execution took place in Guaymas, on August 12, 1854, in an area located in the north of the town square. Captain Francis M. Espino led the firing squad. Now 18 years of age, José looked for new opportunities in life, traveled to Tepic, where he worked for a short time as a blacksmith, he was caught up in the draft for soldiers to serve in the regular army, the San Blas Battalion, but deserted after only three months of service.

José fled to the mountains near Acaponeta and worked for a while as a miner. With the Federal army still searching for him, José traveled to Mazatlán and joined a battalion comprising Pimas and Opatas, part of the ranks of Pablo Lagarma, who had declared for constitutional restoration. Not long afterward, José began service in as a trooper in the army of General Ramón Corona. Due to his previous military experience, the ability to speak three languages, José was appointed aide-de-camp to General Corona. José ended up participating in the War of Reform, against the forces of the French Intervention of Emperor Maximilian, it was General Corona that accepted the sword of surrender from Emperor Maximilian at Querétaro on 15 May 1867. José came to serve in the forces under Ignacio L. Pesqueira, who came to value
