Parallel bars

Parallel bars are floor apparatus consisting of two wooden bars over 11 feet long and positioned at hand height. Parallel bars are used in artistic gymnastics and for physical therapy and home exercise. Gymnasts may optionally wear grips when performing a routine on the parallel bars, although this is uncommon; the apparatus consists of two parallel bars that are held parallel to, elevated above, the floor by a metal supporting framework. The bars are composed with an outer coating of wood; the vertical members of the supporting framework are adjustable so the height of the bars above the floor and distance between the bars can be set optimally for each gymnast. Bar length: 350 centimetres ± 1 centimetre Bar rounded profile: 5 centimetres ± 1 millimetre vertical by 4 centimetres ± 1 millimetre horizontal Bar width: 4 centimetres ± 1 millimetre Height of bar from floor: 200 centimetres ± 1 centimetre Distance between bars: 42 centimetres - 52 centimetres The parallel bars were invented by Friedrich Ludwig Jahn in Berlin.

In 1819 the first transportable parallel bars were described. In 1856 in Germany Hermann Otto Kluge used tubes to make the parallel bars and the horizontal bar adjustable, he used them in his gym. In Tolstoy's Anna Karenina, published between 1873-1877, their use for exercise is described. A routine performed on the parallel bars must include various elements that depend on the gymnast's competitive level. A typical performance will involve swinging skills in a support position, a hanging position, an upper arm position. Parallel bar routines feature a strength or static hold skill such as an L-sit or handstand; each routine ends with a dismount from the side of the apparatus. A parallel bar routine should contain at least one element from all element groups: I. Elements in support or through support II. Elements starting in upper arm position III. Long swings in hang, on 1 or 2 rails IV. Underswings V. Dismounts Deductions are taken for form and exactness of elements performed. There are specific deductions for adjusting hand position in handstand and not controlling swing elements.

Jerry Only is an American musician, well known as the bassist for the Misfits and the vocalist as well. He is the only member to appear in every Misfits lineup. Gerald Caiafa Jr. was born in New Jersey. He started The Misfits with Glenn and Manny in 1977, just a few months after receiving his first bass as a late Christmas present, he would work at his father's machine shop during the week to help finance the band and play shows on the weekend. This would go on for several years and the band split due to differences between lead singer Glenn Danzig and the rest of the band. During this downtime and his brother Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein formed Kryst The Conqueror. In 1995, Only settled a legal battle out of court with co-founder Glenn Danzig, allowing him rights to the Misfits' name on a performing level, while they split the money on merchandising, he reformed the band with Doyle, vocalist Michale Graves, drummer Dr. Chud. Chud and Graves left the group in 2000 to form Graves. In reaction to the loss of members, Doyle left the Misfits.

Graves and Chud were replaced on the M25 tour by Dez Cadena of Black Flag and DC3, on guitar and Marky Ramone of The Ramones, on drums. Only took up the singing duties from this point till the present date. In early 2005, Marky left the group and Only brought in ex-Misfit and Black Flag drummer ROBO to rejoin the group. A new album was recorded in 2010 in Colorado entitled The Devil's Rain, released in October 2011. A single, "Land of the Dead", was released at the mischief night show 2009 at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ. In 2013, Only and the Misfits released a new album entitled DEAD ALIVE! recorded live at several shows. In 2017, the reunited lineup performed two additional concerts at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on December 28 and The Forum in Inglewood, California on December 30, they performed at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey on May 19, 2018.

Only participated in the most memorable match of the Misfits' time when he fought Dr. Death in a steel cage match. Only was dominated in the match but Death was distracted when the rest of the Misfits interfered and attacked his manager Oklahoma, pouring barbecue sauce in his eyes. Only won the match after being accidentally Irish whipped through the cage door by Dr. Death. On May 6, 2014, it was announced that Glenn Danzig had filed a lawsuit against Jerry Only, claiming Only registered trademarks for everything Misfits-related in 2000 behind Danzig's back, misappropriating exclusive ownership over the trademarks for himself, including the band's iconic "Crimson Ghost" logo. Danzig claims. Danzig says that after registering the trademarks, Only secretly entered into deals with various merchandisers and cut him out of any potential profits in the process, he said that Only has purposefully led merchandisers, including Hot Topic, to believe that they are bound not to accept licenses to exploit the Marks from Danzig or his designees, Only continues to do so.

He said that through this, Only has caused merchandisers not to do business with him and it has deceived consumers as to the source of the merchandise which bore the trademarks. Danzig said a vast majority of the Misfits fans associate the trademarks with the 1977–1983 classic Misfits era when Danzig was a member of the band and not with the current era Misfits. Danzig feels that through false advertising and misrepresentations to merchandisers and consumers it has caused him to suffer damages in excess of $75,000. In August 2014, the judge dismissed the case in favor of Only. In 2017, Darkride Films Interview original drummer Manny Martinez said that from what he remembers, there was no Diane Dipiazza or Jimi Battle in the band. Before The Misfits, Mr. Jim and Jimi played in a band with Glenn doing covers, but the original Misfits were Glenn Danzig, Manny Martinez, Jerry Only and Franche Coma. In his early years with The Misfits, Only was seen using a Black Rickenbacker 4001 bass, Only modified this bass to his preferences.

In his career he used a custom built bass dubbed "The Devastator" that vaguely resembled a B. C.

HMS A4 was an early Royal Navy submarine. She was a member of the first British A class of submarines. Like all her class, she was built at Barrow-in-Furness. A4 suffered a serious accident, although without casualties, on 16 October 1905 during an underwater signalling experiment off Spithead. A bell had been lowered into the water from a dinghy some distance away from the submarine was being used to signal to the submarine, running awash. A flag on a boat hook protruding through a ventilator, left open was used to indicate that the signal had been heard; the experiment had been performed on the previous day, but the sea was much rougher on 16 October and the submarine stayed inside the breakwater. The same trim settings had been used as on the previous day, but as there was fresh water flowing into the harbour, the water was less dense and so the submarine was less buoyant than on the previous day. Seawater flooded through the ventilator causing the boat to develop a 40 degree inclination on the bow and dive to 90 feet and partially filling her with chlorine gas when it came in contact with the battery acid.

The crew managed to blow the ballast tanks to surface the boat and evacuate onto the deck, but there was an explosion whilst she was being towed back to port and she sank. The boat was repaired; the captain of the submarine at the time, Lieutenant Martin Nasmith, was awarded the Victoria Cross for his command of HMS E11 during the Dardanelles campaign in 1915. During the First World War she was used for training at Portsmouth, was sold for scrap on 16 January 1920. Royal Navy Submarine museum MaritimeQuest HMS A-4 Pages
