SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Pancho Gonzales

Ricardo Alonso González known as Pancho Gonzales, sometimes as Richard Gonzales, was an American tennis player, rated one of the greatest in the history of the sport. He won 14 major singles titles and was the dominant professional of the 1950s, winning seven professional tours between 1954 and 1961. Gonzales was a ruthless competitor with a fierce temper. Many of his peers on the professional circuit were intimidated by him, he was at odds with officials and promoters. However, he was a fan favorite. After his death, a Sports Illustrated article stated: "If earth was on the line in a tennis match, the man you want serving to save humankind would be Ricardo Alonso Gonzales." Longtime tennis commentator Bud Collins echoed this in 2006: "If I had to choose someone to play for my life, it would be Pancho Gonzales." Gonzales was given a 51-cent racquet by his mother. He received tennis analysis from his friend, Chuck Pate, but taught himself to play by watching other players on the public courts at nearby Exposition Park in Los Angeles.

Once he discovered tennis, he lost interest in school and began a troubled adolescence in which he was pursued by truant officers and policemen. He was befriended by Frank Poulain, the owner of the tennis shop at Exposition Park, sometimes slept there. Due to his lack of school attendance and occasional minor brushes with the law, he was ostracized by the tennis establishment of the 1940s; the headquarters for tennis activity was the Los Angeles Tennis Club, which trained other top players such as the youthful Jack Kramer. During that time, the head of the Southern California Tennis Association, the most powerful man in California tennis was Perry T. Jones. Jones was not only the head of California tennis, but much of the country, because the favorable climate gave that region a head start in tennis, he was described as an autocratic leader who embodied much of the exclusionary sensibilities that governed tennis for decades. Although Gonzales was a promising junior, once Jones discovered that the youth was truant from school, Jones banned him from playing tournaments.

He was arrested for burglary at age 15 and spent a year in detention. He joined the Navy just as World War II was ending and served for two years receiving a bad-conduct discharge in 1947. According to his autobiography, Gonzales stood 6 feet 3 inches and weighed 183 pounds by the time he was 19 years old. Other sources credit him as being an inch or two shorter but in any case he would enjoy a clear advantage in height over a number of his most prominent rivals Pancho Segura, Ken Rosewall, Rod Laver, all of whom were at least 5 or 6 inches shorter. Tony Trabert, badly beaten by Gonzales on their 101-match tour and who disliked him intensely told the Los Angeles Times: "Gonzales is the greatest natural athlete tennis has known; the way he can move that 6-foot-3-inch frame of his around the court is unbelievable. He's just like a big cat... Pancho's reflexes and reactions are God-given talents, he can be moving in one direction and in the split second it takes him to see that the ball is hit to his weak side, he's able to throw his physical mechanism in reverse and get to the ball in time to reach it with his racket."

The flamboyant Gussie Moran, who toured with the Gonzales group, said that watching Gonzales was like seeing "a god patrolling his personal heaven."Despite his lack of playing time while in the Navy, as a unknown 19-year-old in 1947, Gonzales achieved a national ranking of No. 17 by playing on the West Coast. He did, however, go East that year to play in the U. S. Championships at Forest Hills, he surprised the British Davis Cup player Derek Barton and lost a five-set match to third seed Gardnar Mulloy. Following that, in the last major tournament of the year, the Pacific Southwest, played at the Los Angeles Tennis Club, he beat three internationally known names, Jaroslav Drobný, Bob Falkenburg, Frank Parker, before losing in the semifinals to Ted Schroeder; the following year, Perry T. Jones relented in his opposition to Gonzales and sponsored his trip East to play in the major tournaments; the top-ranked American player, decided at the last moment not to play in the U. S. Championships and Gonzales was seeded No. 8 in the tournament.

To the surprise of most observers, he won it easily by a straight-set victory over the South African Eric Sturgess in the finals with his powerful serve-and-volley game. As The New York Times story of that first win began, "The rankest outsider of modern times sits on the tennis throne." His persona at the time was strikingly different from. American Lawn Tennis wrote that "the crowd cheered a handsome, dark-skinned Mexican-American youngster who smiled boyishly each time he captured a hard-fought point, kissed the ball prayerfully before a crucial serve, was human enough to show nervousness as he powered his way to the most coveted crown in the world." This was Gonzales's only major tournament victory of the year, but it was enough to let him finish the year ranked as the number one American player. In 1949, Gonzales performed poorly at Wimbledon, where he was seeded second but lost in the fourth round to Geoff Brown, was derided for his performance by some of the press. A British sportswriter called him a "cheese champion" and, because of his name, his doubles partner of the time, Frank Parker, began to call him "Gorgonzales", after Gorgonzola, the Italian ch

University of Zaragoza Library

The University of Zaragoza Library is the library system of the University of Zaragoza. They are responsible for the management of information resources and the associated activities of learning, instruction and continuing education, their primary purpose is to work toward the growth, preservation and accessibility of information resources as a participant in the knowledge creation process. Their structure, function and objectives are defined in their Policies and Services Manual as well as in their Strategic Plan, the most recent being for 2017-2020; the BUZ is composed of 19 central and campus libraries in addition to the administrative headquarters, other additional libraries included through agreements with separate institutions. While the official inauguration of the University of Zaragoza Library is marked by its formal opening to the public on November 17, 1796, the efforts behind its creation were a product of the enlightenment and the educational policy of King Carlos III, whose Royal Order of March 14, 1759 ordered the establishment of libraries at all universities in the kingdom.

All initial development was terminated as a result of the Spanish War of Independence. On August 4, 1809, during the second siege of the city by French troops, the building was destroyed. Reconstruction begins after the war, but the requirement of substantial funding made this process a lengthy one; this began the development of the itinerant nature of the library, which has become part of its identity. The library was without a permanent home for all of the 19th century and much of the 20th century; the library reopened in 1849. Towards the end of the 19th century, the library divided into three sections: the Main/University Library, the Medicine and Science Library, the Historical Archive; the collections were further subdivided in the beginnings of the 20th century. During the Spanish Civil War, many traditional library functions were supplanted by the establishment of pro-Franco ideology and cultural repression. Replacement activities included providing troops with books and other materials and organizing the Commission for the Purification of Libraries in the University of Zaragoza District to remove works banned by the Fascist state.

During Franco’s regime, the construction of the Ciudad Universitaria area required the gradual relocation of several departments. The Colleges of Letters and Philosophy, Sciences and Medicine, their respective libraries were moved to the new campus. Most of the archives and historical materials were relocated to the Letters and Philosophy building, but part of the collection was still inside the 16th century Cerbuna Chapel when it collapsed on May 6, 1973. Following the approval of the Law of University Reform in 1984, the library began to reestablish itself after the approval of new democratic bylaws; this marked the beginning of a period of change that included a significant increase of staff and the construction of new library buildings for the College of Economics and Business and the College of Letters and Philosophy/Arts and Letters. The BUZ began a progressive reorganization of its collections that moved away from its traditional fragmented nature, while maintaining the decentralization of individual colleges.

The process of catalog automation and the development of the digital library took place from 1995 to the beginning of the 21st century. In 1984, the year of the university’s 400th anniversary, the Main Library was relocated to the newly restored and modified building designed by Ricardo Magdalena, built to house the Colleges of Medicine and Science. In 2011, the Main Library, its associated services, the European Documentation Center returned to the main hall; the old reading room now serves as an exhibition space for the BUZ collection. This move followed a full restoration of the space that began in 2006; the BUZ is a single library system spread through many institutions and managed by the library commission. The University of Zaragoza Library is home to the most important bibliographic holdings in all of Aragon, it contains more than 1 million volumes in different formats and mediums, provides access to over 20,000 online journals and databases corresponding to areas of study at the university.

Through Roble, the online catalog, users can discover what is available in the library and sign up to receive updates on newly acquired titles. Since 2013, the search tool Alcorze has allowed users to search the library’s catalog, digital repository, subscription databases simultaneously; as a part of its dedication to the preservation of knowledge, the University maintains collections containing materials of significant intrinsic or historical value. The majority of this collection is located in the Main library; because of their uniqueness, these materials are kept in a special collections unit with additional restrictions. Many of these materials are accessible through the University of Zaragoza Digital Archives; the highlights of the collection include 416 manuscripts dated from the 15th-19th century, 406 incunables, an important collection of printed works from the 16th-18th century. Additionally, there is a broad spectrum of publications from research-oriented and cultural institutions throughout Aragon.

The BIVIDA project provides digitized copies of many of the works on Aragonian law held by the University of Zaragoza Library. The library provides several different services, including use of its collections, spaces

Millstone, New Jersey

Millstone is a borough in Somerset County, New Jersey, United States. It was known as Somerset Courthouse and was the county seat; as of the 2010 United States Census, the borough's population was 418, reflecting an increase of 8 from the 410 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn declined by 40 from the 450 counted in the 1990 Census. Millstone was incorporated as a borough by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on May 14, 1894, from portions of Hillsborough Township, based on the results of a referendum held that day; the borough was reincorporated on March 12, 1928. The borough was named for the Millstone River, whose name derives from an incident in which a millstone was dropped into it. A historic district in Millstone, comprising 58 buildings, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976; the borough possesses a military significance for 1700–1749, 1750–1799, 1850–1874. New Jersey Monthly magazine ranked Millstone as its 7th best place to live in its 2008 rankings of the "Best Places To Live" in New Jersey.

Millstone called Somerset Courthouse, was the county seat of Somerset County from 1738 until the British burned it to the ground in 1779 during the American Revolutionary War. After the victory at Princeton on January 3, 1777, General George Washington headquartered at the Van Doren house, while the army camped nearby that night; the next day, they marched to Pluckemin on the way to their winter encampment at Morristown. Millstone was connected to the Pennsylvania Railroad when the Mercer and Somerset Railway was extended to the town in the 1870s and connected via a bridge across the Millstone River to the Pennsylvania Railroad's Millstone and New Brunswick Railroad, but that arrangement did not last into the 1880s. Remnants of the railroad bridge can still be seen.

San Glorio

San Glorio is a mountain pass in the Cantabrian Mountains of Northern Spain. The pass reaches an elevation of 1610 meters along the national highway N621 which connects the city of León with Cantabria and which passes through Asturias; the pass is situated some 800m from the southern border of the Picos de Europa National Park, a park included in UNESCO's World Network of Biosphere Reserves and shared by the provinces of León, Asturias and Cantabria. The valleys of this part of the Cantabrian Mountains include sites in the European Union's Natura 2000 network and Special Protection Areas for the conservation of wild birds. San Glorio is used as a corridor by the Cantabrian brown bear Ursus arctos, catalogued in Spain as being in danger of extinction. Moreover, the slopes of the glacial valleys making up the surrounding region are home to an important variety of plant life. San Glorio is the name of a projected ski resort in the area. Involving some 60 kilometres of pistes, the development was first suggested in the 1970s.

The current project was presented in 2003 and has so far not gone ahead due to legal challenges related to the environmental value of the area. The scientific community warned of irreparable damage that would result to the habitat from the construction of large facilities. Much of the land in question belongs to the Natural Park of Fuentes Carrionas y Fuente Cobre-Montaña Palentina. According to a 2006 report published by the Ministry of the Environment, the Picos de Europa has "conservation problems at local level" due to the role tourism plays, but because there are "...no planning regulations for this unequalled territory. The regional government of Castilla and León has commenced construction of a ski resort, near the San Glorio mountain pass. A new road is projected between Valdeón and Liébana, in Cantabria; the regional government of Asturias is constructing another road from Sotres to Bulnes along the summits. Several mountain cable cars are projected: the final assault has commenced."

While the latest estimate puts the Cantabrian Brown Bear population at around 140, these bears are divided between around 100-110 in the Western section and 25-30 in the Eastern. Leading Spanish experts have warned that despite an evident rise, the bear population will not be viable until there are "several hundred". Asturias only has a 25% forest coverage, the lowest for any existing bear region in Europe and habitat improvement is therefore a key issue. Another problem is that of infrastructures. According to Jon Swenson, vice-president for Eurasia of the International Bear Association, the effect of a ski station would cause the same environmental impact as a town of 3,000 inhabitants and bears would keep at least 10 km away from such facilities. In a paper presented in February 1989 at the Eighth International Conference on Bear Research and Management, British Columbia, Christopher Servheen of the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service stated that the continued reduction in habitat further isolates the two subpopulations in the Cantabrian Mountains, "making them more susceptible to the demographic and genetic consequences of small population size."

Although Spain's Ministry for the Environment has opposed the development of San Glorio, the regional government of Castile and León has adopted major changes in regional planning which may permit future development, including the removal of a prohibition from March 2006 on the construction of ski resorts in the protected area of Fuentes Carrionas. At the beginning of 2008, Spain's Defensor del Pueblo, with a direct mandate to initiate proceedings at Spain's Constitutional Court, submitted the following to Castilla and León's department of the environment: "Que esa Consejería realice las gestiones pertinentes para que se proceda a derogar el Decreto 13/2006, al ser contrario a la legalidad vigente en materia de Espacios Naturales y Evaluación Ambiental, por no haber sido evaluada previamente la modificación del PORN de Fuentes Carrionas y Fuente Cobre-Montaña Palentina, que contiene tal Decreto". In March 2008, the High Court of Castilla y León ruled that the regional government's sudden change in its own planning regulations with the intention of permitting a ski resort, not only went against its own regional law, but both the national law on nature conservation and the European Natura 2000 regulations.

The Court accepted the results of research submitted by the University of Salamanca and Spain's Higher Council for Scientific Research, both of which criticised plans to develop within protected land. The regional government attempted to respond to the legal challenge with a plagiarised report which had to be withdrawn. At the end of 2009 it produced another report which proposed that Fuentes Carrionas and Picos de Europa should be considered together as an area where ski resorts are possible; the consortium backing the San Glorio resort claims that its proposal is the only means of preventing the villages of the region from becoming depopulated. The local population of the villages affected has come out in favour of the project, basing their arguments on what is claimed will be a boost to the local economy. However, the economic benefits are disputed by the NGOs leading the campaign against the project, who, in turn, accuse the promoters of the development of having specu

Tsinghua Bamboo Slips

The Tsinghua Bamboo Slips are a collection of Chinese texts dating to the Warring States period and written in ink on strips of bamboo, that were acquired in 2008 by Tsinghua University, China. The texts were obtained by illegal excavation of a tomb in the area of Hubei or Hunan province, were acquired and donated to the university by an alumnus; the large size of the collection and the significance of the texts for scholarship make it one of the most important discoveries of early Chinese texts to date. On 7 January 2014 the journal Nature announced that a portion of the Tsinghua Bamboo Slips represent "the world's oldest example" of a decimal multiplication table; the Tsinghua Bamboo Slips were donated to Tsinghua University in July 2008 by an alumnus of the university. The precise location and date of the illicit excavation that yielded the slips remain unknown. An article in the Guangming Daily named the donor as Zhao Weiguo, stated that the texts were purchased at "a foreign auction", Neither the name of the auction house, nor the location or sum involved in the transaction were mentioned.

Li Xueqin, the director of the conservation and research project, has stated that the wishes of the alumnus to maintain his identity secret will be respected. Similarities with previous discoveries, such as the manuscripts from the Guodian tomb, indicate that the TBS came from a mid-to-late Warring States Period tomb in the region of China culturally dominated at that time by the Chu state. A single radiocarbon date and the style of ornament on the accompanying box are in keeping with this conclusion. By the time they reached the university, the slips were badly affected by mold. Conservation work on the slips was carried out, a Center for Excavated Texts Research and Preservation was established at Tsinghua on April 25, 2009. There are 2388. A series of articles discussing the TBS, intended for an educated but non-specialist Chinese audience, appeared in the Guangming Daily during late 2008 and 2009; the first volume of texts was published by the Tsinghua team in 2010. A 2013 article in The New York Times reported on the TBS's importance to understanding the Chinese classics.

Sarah Allan, a sinologist at Dartmouth College, stressed the significance of the circa 305 BC date when the bamboo manuscripts were buried, about 100 years before Qin Shi Huang conducted a "literary holocaust" with the burning of books and burying of scholars. Professor Allan said that, in predating that textual censorship, "hese manuscripts speak directly to the core issues of the Chinese intellectual tradition and were recorded at the height of the formative period." "The classics are all political", Li Xueqin commented: "It would be like finding the original Bible or the'original' classics. It enables us to look at the classics before they were turned into'classics.' The questions now include, what were they in the beginning, how they became what they are?" Several of the TBS texts are similar to the received Shang Shu, a miscellany of documents from various dates in the first millennium BC that were transmitted as a canonical collection from the Han dynasty onwards. In some cases, a TBS text can be found in the received Shang Shu, with only variations in wording, title or orthography.

Such examples include versions of the "Jin Teng", "Kang Gao" and "Gu Ming" chapters of the Shang Shu. The majority of Shang Shu-style TBS texts, are not found in the received Shang Shu, either having been "lost" in the process of transmission, or else never having been incorporated into the canonical collection. An annalistic history recording events from the beginning of the Western Zhou through to the early Warring States period is said to be similar in form and content to the received Bamboo Annals. Another text running across 14 slips recounts a celebratory gathering of the Zhou elite in the 8th year of the reign of King Wu of Zhou, prior to their conquest of the Shang dynasty; the gathering takes place in the ancestral temple of King Wen of Zhou, King Wu's father, consisted of beer drinking and the recitation of hymns in the style of the received Shi Jing. Among the TBS texts in the style of the received Shang Shu, is one, titled "The Admonition of Protection"; this was the first text for which anything approaching a complete description and transcription was published.

The text purports to be a record of a deathbed admonition by the Zhou king Wen Wang to his son and heir, Wu Wang. Although the team working on the text refers to it as "The Admonition of Protection", their transcription of the text refers to a "Precious Admonition" and that may be the more appropriate editorial title; the content of the king's speech revolves around a concept of The Middle which seems to refer to an avoidance of extremes and an ability to consider diverse points of view. The king narrates a story of the sage-king Shun acquiring The Middle by living a modest, thoughtful life, a more puzzling second tale which describes the Shang ancestor Wei "borrowing The Middle from the River." "Xinian" 繫年 composed ca. 370 BC, relates key events of Zhou history. It comprises 138 slips in a well preserved condition. Among the contents they transmit is an account of the origin of Qin by supporters of the Shang dynasty, who were opposed to the Zhou conquest. Twenty-one bamboo slips of the Tsinghua Bamboo Slips, when assembled in the correct order, represent a decimal multiplication table tha

Larry Wilson (American football)

Larry Frank Wilson is an American former professional football player, an eight-time Pro Bowl free safety with the St. Louis Cardinals of the National Football League, he played his entire 13-year career with the Cardinals and remained on the team's payroll until 2003, long after the team moved to Arizona in 1988. Wilson was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1978, his first year of eligibility, was named to the NFL 75th Anniversary All-Time Team in 1994 and was named to the NFL 100th Anniversary All-Time Team in 2019. Born and raised in Rigby, Wilson attended Rigby High School, where a plaque now hangs noting his accomplishments. After graduation in 1956, he played college football at the University of Utah, where he was a two-way starter at halfback and cornerback for the Utes under head coaches Jack Curtice and Ray Nagel. Despite his skill and adaptability, Wilson's small size resulted in him not being selected until the 7th round of the 1960 NFL draft by the Chicago Cardinals.

The draft was held in November 1959, the franchise moved to St. Louis before the start of the 1960 season. Shortly before Wilson's signing, defensive coordinator Chuck Drulis crafted a play that called for the free safety to take part in a blitz; the play was code-named "Wildcat", but Drulis didn't think he had anyone with the skills and athleticism to run it until Wilson's arrival. Drulis was impressed enough with Wilson that he persuaded the Cardinals to convert him to free safety; when the Cardinals first ran the safety blitz, the pressure was severe since most teams did not expect a defensive back to take part in a pass rush. This single play helped to set up today's defenses where a blitz can come from anywhere. Wilson became so identified with the play. Wilson was named All-Pro six times in his career and represented the Cardinals on eight Pro Bowl teams. During 1966, he had at least one interception in seven consecutive games, en route to a 10-pick season that led his league. Fellow Idahoan Jerry Kramer, a guard for the Green Bay Packers and author of Instant Replay, called Wilson "the finest football player in the NFL."

Kramer described Wilson's play during an October 30, 1967 game, "...he fired up their whole team... is enthusiasm was infectious." Wilson is renowned for not only playing, but intercepting a pass, with casts on both hands due to broken wrists. On the September 18, 2006 edition of SportsCenter, Mike Ditka challenged Terrell Owens' toughness by not playing for 2–4 weeks due to a broken finger, he cited Wilson's interception with casts on both hands as proof of a tougher football player. He ended his career with 52 career picks for five touchdowns. Wilson retired after the 1972 season, he is one of the few players to have played in the NFL for at least 10 years without having taken part in an official playoff game. The closest he came to postseason play was in 1964, when the Cardinals played in and won the Playoff Bowl, a postseason third-place game, it was one of only five winning seasons. Following his retirement as a player, Wilson was named secondary director of scouting, he stepped down as secondary coach after the 1973 season.

In 1977, he was named a post he would hold for the next 17 years. He served as interim head coach in 1979 after the dismissal of Bud Wilkinson. Wilson added the title of vice president after the team's move to Arizona, he stepped down as GM in 1993, but remained as vice president until his retirement after the 2002 season. Wilson was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1978, making him one of the few Hall of Famers to have never played in the postseason. In 1999, he was ranked number 43 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Football Players, making him the highest-ranked player to have played a majority of his career with the Cardinals; the team has retired his uniform number 8. In 2007, NFL Network ranked him ninth on its list of the "Top 10 Draft Steals" in NFL history. Wilson was named to the NFL 75th Anniversary All-Time Team in 1994 and was named to the NFL 100th Anniversary All-Time Team in 2019.
