Norwegian Society

The Norwegian Society was a literary society for Norwegian students in Copenhagen active from 1772 to 1813. Its members included authors and philosophers; the Norwegian Society was formed in 1772 by Ove Gjerløw Meyer. Their meeting place was Madame Juel's Coffeehouse in the Læderstræde, it was a gentlemen's club, with the exception of the waitress Karen Bach and the poet Magdalene Sophie Buchholm, the meetings were lively with speakers and discussion, poetry recitation improvisations and significant intakes of punch. The club considered itself culturally conservative and devoted to the rationalistic empirical style of Ludvig Holberg; the members of the Norwegian Society are viewed as playing a central role in the wakening of Norwegian patriotic awareness at the close of the 18th century. Many of the poems and plays had patriotic themes; the society was discontinued in 1813 after the battle was won to establish the first Norwegian university, but a new gentlemen's club with the same name started in 1818.

At the age of thirteen he was sent to St. Edmund's College, Old Hall, where he went through the whole course, was ordained priest in 1814. Four years he was chosen as president, at the age of 27, he ruled the college for fifteen years, did much to give the college a sound financial basis. He was appointed coadjutor to Bishop Bramston Vicar Apostolic of the London District, he was consecrated as Titular Bishop of Olena at St. Edmund's College, 28 October 1833. Within three years Bishop Bramston died, Bishop Griffiths succeeded him. A biographical sketch by one of his priests describes Griffiths as "...silent, bland, inoffensive too happy to serve and oblige everyone. Soon after this, the Oxford movement and attendant Catholic conversions began: and the immigration of Irish Catholics grew. At the same time the growth of the British colonies, many of, until ruled as part of the London District, brought him into contact with the government.

In all these spheres Griffiths discharged his duties with practical ability. When Griffiths died, somewhat unexpectedly, in 1847 Ullathorne himself preached the funeral sermon; the body of the deceased prelate was laid temporarily in the vaults of Moorfields Church. An oil painting of Griffiths is at Westminster. Attribution This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domain: Herbermann, Charles, ed.. "Thomas Griffiths".

List of Coronation Street characters (1994)

The following is a list of characters that first appeared in the ITV soap opera Coronation Street in 1994, by order of first appearance. Sister Radford, portrayed by Nimmy March, was a nurse at Weatherfield General, she was training Martin Platt, was present when his seven year old adoptive daughter Sarah-Lou was recovering from appendicitis in the children's ward. In March 1994, Sarah-Lou's appendix ruptured and she had an emergency operation. Whilst she was recovering, both Martin and his wife Gail were disgusted with the lack of attention the patients received; this caused a furious Martin to accuse Sister of focusing on her own priorities rather than help children who needed medical treatment. This upset Sister Radford much, she refused to forgive Martin after he apologized, she told Gail and Sarah-Lou's paternal grandmother Ivy Tilsley that Sarah-Lou was making an excellent recovery. The next day, Sister Radford told Martin that he needs to respect her more in training and they both called a truce, making the excuse that work was stressing them both.

Patricia Mary "Tricia" Armstrong was played by Tracy Brabin for a period of three years between 1994 and 1997. Brabin has been Labour MP for Batley and Spen since 2016. Tricia first appeared. Tricia befriended assistant manager Curly Watts to get Jamie out of trouble and pleaded with Curly to go easy on him. Tricia developed an attraction to Curly and they began dating but the relationship ended when Tricia's ex-husband, assaulted Jack Duckworth, babysitting whilst she and Curly were out on a date. In January 1995, Tricia and Jamie moved into Number 11 Coronation Street. Tricia befriended her neighbour Jack's wife. Tricia was responded by emptying a chamber pot over him. Despite this and Jamie moved into a flat Mike owned on Crimea Street, she befriended Deirdre Rachid, who helped look after Jamie whilst Tricia worked. Facing financial difficulties, Tricia attempted to get money from Mike by offering to have sex with him but he refused. In January 1996, Tricia was imprisoned for a week for failing to pay a fine for her TV licence.

On release, she was overjoyed to be reunited with Jamie. In May, Tricia's unemployment benefits were stopped when she was found to be working as a cleaner for Mike but this time Mike offered to help and gave her a job as a machinist at his factory. In June, Tricia was attracted to Terry Duckworth and Vera's son, after he returned to Weatherfield. One night Tricia got drunk in The Rovers and Terry took her home. Despite Tricia losing her keys, Terry used a credit card to help her gain entry to her flat and they slept together; as a result of this one-night stand, Tricia got pregnant but Terry wasn't interested in being a father. Jack and Vera let Tricia move into The Rovers with them and she gave birth unexpectedly to her son, Brad, on 14 February 1997 in the back of the pub. Jamie and barmaid Betty Williams helped deliver him. Shortly afterwards, Tricia met decorator Ray Thorpe, they became close and started dating but in April 1997, Terry returned to Weatherfield. Tricia realised that Terry would never be a good role model for her sons and after speaking to Jack, who understood her concerns about Terry and encouraged her to be with Ray, Tricia left the Street with Ray to start a new life with him and her children.

James'Jamie' Armstrong was portrayed by Joseph Gilgun. He lived on Coronation Street for a period of three years between 1994 and 1997. 10-year-old Jamie was first seen when he was caught shoplifting from Bettabuys by assistant manager Curly Watts. His mother Tricia flirted with Curly in order to get Jamie out of trouble and they began to date, until her violent ex-husband Carl turned up. Jamie was being babysat by Jack Duckworth whilst Tricia and Curly were on a date, when Carl arrived and attacked Jack; as Tricia and Jamie settled into the street – befriending not only the Duckworths, but Deirdre Barlow and Roy Cropper – Jamie developed interests in Jim McDonald's motorbike and Jack's pigeons. After he turned eleven, Jamie moved from Bessie Street Juniors to Weatherfield Comprehensive, he started looking after Jack's pigeons to get some extra money but seemed genuinely interested in them and stroking them just like Jack. Jamie had a reputation of being a troublemaker, was the first suspect whenever things went wrong – if it was not his fault.

When he saw someone stealing Josie Clarke's bike he tried to get it back for her, he was spotted hanging round the back door by Percy Sugden, who thought he had stolen it when the bike was reported missing. Because of his reputation, it was difficult to make people believe him when he was telling the truth. Tricia always defended her son and told everyone to stop picking on him, but would order him to tell the truth once they were alone. However, Jamie did have a mischievous streak, he once implemented a bike puncture scam to get some extra money. People realised they had a puncture. Jamie would be nearby and happened to have a repair kit and offered to fix the tyres and receive money in return, he helped his mother to get revenge on Mike Baldwin for evicting them, by emptying a chamber pot over his head. Jamie did not like being without his mother and was close to her; when she was in prison for non-payment of her TV licence, he ran away from the foster home he had been staying at and went back to their flat.

Deirdre took him in for the evening. Jamie was good at assuming an

Lytham Hall

Lytham Hall is an 18th-century Georgian country house in Lytham, Lancashire, 1 mile from the centre of the town, in 78 acres of wooded parkland. It is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade I listed building, the only one in the Borough of Fylde; the manor of Lytham was recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Lidun. In the 12th century it was given to the Benedictine monks of Durham Priory for the foundation of a monastic cell—Lytham Priory. Following the Dissolution of the Monasteries in the 1530s, Lytham Priory came into the possession of Sir Richard Molyneux. In 1606 the land was acquired by local landowner Cuthbert Clifton. Cuthbert's descendant, Thomas Clifton, replaced that house with the current hall, built 1757–1764 to the design of John Carr of York. For the next two centuries the Clifton estate, at its largest, comprised 8,000 acres. Ownership of the property descended to John Clifton and thence to his son Thomas Joseph Clifton, who extensively remodelled the estate by extending the surrounding parkland.

It passed via Colonel John Talbot Clifton, MP for North Lancashire, to his 14-year-old grandson, the colourful John Talbot Clifton, during whose stewardship the railway was built along the estate's southern boundary and part of the land sold for housing. During the First World War the house was used as a military hospital and after the Cliftons had moved to live in Ireland in 1919 and Scotland in 1922 the house was somewhat neglected. Clifton was a passionate traveller and died in 1928 on an expedition to Timbuktu with his wife, Violet Beauclerk, she wrote a biography of her husband, published under the title The Book of Talbot, which won the 1933 James Tait Black Prize, was the last person to live in the house. Their dilettante film producer son, Henry de Vere Clifton, had squandered much of the family's wealth and the house had to be sold to Guardian Royal Exchange Assurance in 1963 for office accommodation. On 1 December 1965, Lytham Hall was designated as a Grade I listed building; the Grade I designation is the highest of the three grades.

The hall is on the Heritage at Risk Register because its condition is considered to be only "fair". In 1997 Lytham Town Trust bought the building, with help from a donation from BAE Systems, subsequently leased it to Heritage Trust for the North West for 99 years. Lytham Hall is constructed in the Palladian style of red brick in Flemish bond with stone dressings and stuccoed features, it sits on a stone plinth. The front façade lies to the east; the main entrance is pedimented and is flanked by Doric columns. There are four pilasters between the first roof cornice; the ground floor windows have Gibbs surrounds. In contrast to traditional Palladian-style houses in which the servants' and utility rooms were on the ground floor and the important family rooms were on the first floor, Lytham Hall's main rooms are on the ground floor. In the grounds are several Grade II listed structures, including the Gatehouse, a large stable block, a large dovecote, the inner gates, a statue of Diana in what used to be a formal garden, a screen wall running south from the west wing.

Lytham Hall is described on its website as "the finest Georgian house in Lancashire."

1975–76 Yugoslav Cup

The 1975–76 Yugoslav Cup was the 28th season of the top football knockout competition in SFR Yugoslavia, the Yugoslav Cup known as the "Marshal Tito Cup", since its establishment in 1946. The Yugoslav Cup was a tournament for which clubs from all tiers of the football pyramid were eligible to enter. In addition, amateur teams put together by individual Yugoslav People's Army garrisons and various factories and industrial plants were encouraged to enter, which meant that each cup edition could have several thousands of teams in its preliminary stages; these teams would play through a number of qualifying rounds before reaching the first round proper, in which they would be paired with top-flight teams. After single-year tournaments in 1973 and 1974 which saw finals played on 29 November, in 1975–76 the tournament format returned to the more traditional September–May schedule, with the final moved to 25 May, to coincide with the end of the football league season and Youth Day celebrated on 25 May.

Since the cup winner was always meant to be decided on or around the national holiday at the JNA Stadium in capital Belgrade, to avoid unfair home advantage this would give to Belgrade-based clubs, the Football Association of Yugoslavia adopted the rule in the late 1960s according to which the final could be played as a one-legged tie or double-legged, with the second leg always played in Belgrade. This rule was used for all cup finals from 1969 to 1988, when a single-legged final was adopted permanently.
