Kentucky Wildcats women's basketball
The Kentucky Wildcats women's basketball team represent the University of Kentucky in the Southeastern Conference, the most dominant conference in women's basketball. However, despite reaching national rankings as high as #4, the team has never reached the national championship semifinals. Through the end of the 2009–10 season, the team's all-time varsity record was 603–455, the team had won the SEC Women's Basketball Tournament, appeared in the NCAA Tournament fourteen times with a tournament record of 7-7; the first University of Kentucky women's basketball team was organized in 1902, competed for the first time on Feb. 21, 1903. However, in 1924, despite a perfect 10-0 season, the University Senate passed a bill to abolish women's basketball in part because, according to state politicians, "basketball had proven to be a strenuous sport for boys and therefore was too strenuous for girls." After 50 years, women's basketball was granted varsity status in 1974, most of the official records maintained by the university only reflect games since that time.
The team, coached by Sue Feamster, was given the nickname "Lady Kats", which continued to be used until May 1995. Led by UK all-time leading scorer Valerie Still, Patty Jo Hedges, Lea Wise, the Lady Kats won the SEC Tournament in 1982; the following year, the same trio led the team to a #4 ranking in the country, the highest in the team's history. The team is coached by Matthew Mitchell. Since the restoration of the program in 1974, the Kentucky Wildcats have played their home games in the 8,500 seat Memorial Coliseum, their record attendance in that building is 10,622, set on February 5, 1983 against Old Dominion; the team has played occasional games in the 23,500 seat Rupp Arena. In January 2007, the university opened the Joe Craft Center, a $30 million state-of-the-art basketball practice facility for both the men's and women's teams. Jane Todd Watson C. P.

Kentucky Wildcats men's basketball
The Kentucky Wildcats men's basketball team is an American college basketball team that represents the University of Kentucky. Kentucky is the most successful NCAA Division I basketball program in history in terms of both all-time wins and all-time winning percentage; the Wildcats are coached by John Calipari. Kentucky leads all schools in total NCAA tournament appearances, NCAA tournament wins, NCAA Tournament games played, NCAA Sweet Sixteen appearances, NCAA Elite Eight appearances, total postseason tournament appearances. Further, Kentucky has played in 17 NCAA Final Fours, 12 NCAA Championship games, has won 8 NCAA championships. In addition to these titles, Kentucky won the National Invitation Tournament in both 1946 and 1976, making it the only school to win multiple NCAA and NIT championships. Kentucky leads all schools with sixty-three 20-win seasons, sixteen 30-win seasons, six 35-win seasons. Throughout its history, the Kentucky basketball program has featured many notable and successful players, both on the collegiate level and the professional level.
Kentucky holds the record for the most NBA Draft selections as well as the most #1 NBA Draft picks. The Wildcats have been led by many successful head coaches, including Adolph Rupp, Joe B. Hall, Eddie Sutton, Rick Pitino, Tubby Smith, John Calipari. Kentucky is the only program with 5 different NCAA Championship coaches. Three Kentucky coaches have been enshrined in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame: Rupp and Calipari. Former Wildcat players that have gone on to become head coaches include C. M. Newton, Pat Riley, Dan Issel, Dwane Casey, John Pelphrey, Steve Masiello and Travis Ford. During this early era Kentucky was unstable in that the school went through multiple coaches, many stayed only one or two seasons. Records indicate that the first head coach of the Wildcats was W. W. H. Mustaine, who in 1903 called together some students, took up a collection totaling $3 for a ball, told the students to start playing; the first recorded intercollegiate game at the college was a 15–6 defeat to nearby Georgetown College.
The team went 1–2 for their first "season" losing to Kentucky University but defeating the Lexington YMCA. Through 1908, the team did not manage a winning season, had an all-time record of 15–29. In the fall of that year a full-time head coach was hired, Edwin Sweetland; this made him the first paid coach in Kentucky's basketball history. That year, the team went 5–4, only three years boasted their first undefeated season with nine victories and no losses; the 1914 team under Alpha Brummage, led by brothers Karl and Tom Zerfoss, went 12–2 and defeated all its Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association opponents. In 1919, George Buchheit became the new head coach of the Wildcats. An alumnus of the University of Illinois, he brought with him a new system of basketball; the "Buchheit system" or "Illinois system", focused on defense and featured one player standing under each basket, while three roamed the court. Buckheit varied the system. While the Illinois system employed a zone defense, Buchheit's system used an aggressive man-to-man scheme.
On offense, he used a complicated system of passing called "figure eight" offense. Although the team had a losing season in Buchheit's first year, they won the first-ever Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association tournament the next year, defeating the favored Georgia Bulldogs. Both of these teams were composed of native Kentuckians, anchored by All-American Basil Hayden; the tournament victory was considered Kentucky's first major success, the 1921 team became known as the "Wonder Team."In 1922, the team was unable to build on the success of the "Wonder Team." Although every player was eligible in 1922, two key players and Sam Ridgeway, were injured before the start of the season. Hayden returned from his knee injury during the season, but was never able to play at the level he had the previous year. Ridgeway fought a year-long battle with diphtheria, although he recovered, never played for the Wildcats again; the remaining three members of the "Wonder Team" went 9–5 for the season, bowed out of the SIAA tournament in the second round.
Buchheit remained as coach through the 1924 season before moving on to coach Trinity College. A different coach would guide the team for each of the next four years. C. O. Applegran followed Buchheit, his 1925 team posted a respectable 13–8 record. Applegran in college had played for the University of Illinois; the next year, Ray Eklund led the team to a 15–3 record, produced UK's second All-American, Burgess Carey. The record was enough for Kentucky to win their first regular season conference championship in the Southern Conference. Seeing the cupboard bare for the upcoming year, Eklund resigned shortly before the start of the 1927 season; the team scrambled to find a new coach, former player Basil Hayden left his coaching job at Kentucky Wesleyan College to answer the call. An inexperienced coach and a roster depleted of talent left the Wildcats with a 3–13 record that year; the disappointment convinced Hayden that he wasn't the "coaching type", he resigned after the season. For the Wildcats, 1927 would be their last losing season for six decades.
The Wildcats' new coach for the 1927–28 season was John Mauer. Although he had a talented group of players moving up from the junior varsity team, Mauer discovered that his players did not know the fundamen
University of Kentucky College of Law
The College of Law is a college of the University of Kentucky. Founded from a law program at Transylvania University in 1799, the law program at UK began operations in 1908. In 1913, the college became the first in the nation to institute a trial practice program, is host to the tenth-oldest student-run law review publication in the United States; the current dean of the College of Law is David Brennen. According to the most recent publication of US News and World Report, the Law School is ranked #65 among all public and private universities. Among the three law schools in the commonwealth, the University of Kentucky College of Law ranks the highest. Among public law schools, the program is tied at #31; the UK College of Law is home to two student-run publications: the Kentucky Law Journal and the Kentucky Journal of Equine, Agriculture & Natural Resources Law. The Kentucky Law Journal is one of the oldest law reviews in the United States. According to University of Kentucky's 2013 ABA-required disclosures, 70.7% of the Class of 2013 obtained full-time, long-term, JD-required employment nine months after graduation, excluding solo practitioners.
As noted, the UK College of Law began operations in 1908. It was housed in a structure now known as the Gillis Building from 1927 to 1936. In 1936, the college moved into the newly built Lafferty Hall. Lafferty Hall was named after the first dean of the College of Law; the College of Law again relocated to its current building located on South Limestone in 1965. In 1913, the college began publication of the Kentucky Law Journal; the KLJ is the tenth-oldest student-run law journal in continuous publication in America. In 1925, the college was approved by the American Bar Association and was elected to the Order of the Coif in 1931. Constructed in 1965, the University of Kentucky College of Law Building houses the Alvin E. Evans Library and faculty offices.. The Alvin E. Evans Library is the largest law library in the Commonwealth and contains 470,000 volumes, along with a vast array of electronic materials, it provides access to all "U. S. reported court decisions and administrative materials" along with international materials.
A 2002 study suggested that if a new College of Law structure was to be constructed, it should relocate closer to downtown Lexington. The suggested site was a block or two north, on Scott Street near the College of Education. A plan for five structures and two courtyards was abandoned because of funding difficulties. Now the school will renovate and expand its current building, a $56 million project, with state bonds paying $35 million on the condition that tuition not go up as a result; the work is to be completed in 2019. According to University of Kentucky's official 2013 ABA-required disclosures, 70.7% of the Class of 2013 obtained full-time, long-term, JD-required employment nine months after graduation, excluding solo practitioners. University of Kentucky's Law School Transparency under-employment score is 11.3%, indicating the percentage of the Class of 2013 unemployed, pursuing an additional degree, or working in a non-professional, short-term, or part-time job nine months after graduation.
The total cost of attendance at University of Kentucky for the 2014-2015 academic year is $53,700. The Law School Transparency estimated debt-financed cost of attendance for three years is $204,646.

Memorial Coliseum (University of Kentucky)
Memorial Coliseum is an 8,500-seat multi-purpose arena in Lexington, Kentucky. The facility, which opened in 1950, is home to three women's teams at the University of Kentucky – basketball and gymnastics. Before Rupp Arena opened in 1976, it housed the men's basketball team. Memorial Coliseum housed the university's swimming and diving team prior to the 1989 completion of the Lancaster Aquatics Center; the facility was built as a memorial to Kentuckians who had died in World War I, World War II and the Korean War. The names of all Kentuckians who died in the Vietnam War were added, it had an official capacity of 12,000, making it the largest arena in the South at the time. However, the Coliseum drew crowds of over 13,000 for many UK basketball games. A major renovation, completed in 1990, reduced the seating capacity to its current total of 8,500 and added an elaborate weight training facility, new offices for the basketball and athletics programs, a players' lounge, a team meeting room; the seating is now located on the sidelines, the men's NCAA basketball championship banners still hang on the walls.
The building is known for its air of great tradition. While it was the home of the UK men's basketball team, it hosted the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament ten times, four times as a regional site and six more as a sub-regional site; as home to the University of Kentucky Wildcats, it saw two NCAA men's basketball national championship teams, two NCAA men's basketball runner-up teams, one NIT Men's Basketball champion, 16 Southeastern Conference Men's Basketball regular season champions. Overall, in 26 seasons, the University of Kentucky Wildcats men's basketball team posted a home record of 307–38. Memorial hosted a first-round game in the 2009 National Invitation Tournament on March 17, 2009 between the Wildcats and the UNLV Runnin' Rebels, with the Wildcats winning 70–60; the game was held at Memorial instead of Rupp Arena due to a scheduling conflict with the KHSAA boys' high school basketball state tournament scheduled at Rupp that week. The Coliseum was the home of the Kentucky Boys' Sweet Sixteen State Basketball Tournament from 1951 to 1964.
Since it has hosted numerous high school basketball tournaments over the years. The Coliseum stands across the street from the former site of Stoll Field/McLean Stadium, the football team's home before moving to the venue now known as Kroger Field in 1973. Prior to the building of the Coliseum, the Kentucky basketball teams played less than three blocks away at Alumni Gymnasium, a 2,800-seat arena built in 1924 and now converted to a student fitness center.

A consul is an official representative of the government of one state in the territory of another acting to assist and protect the citizens of the consul's own country, to facilitate trade and friendship between the people of the two countries. A consul is distinguished from an ambassador, the latter being a representative from one head of state to another. There can be only one ambassador from one country to another, representing the first country's head of state to that of the second, his or her duties revolve around diplomatic relations between the two countries. A less common usage is an administrative consul, who takes a governing role and is appointed by a country that has colonised or occupied another. In classical Greece, some of the functions of the modern consul were fulfilled by a proxenos. Unlike the modern position, this was a citizen of the host polity; the proxenos was a wealthy merchant who had socio-economic ties with another city and who helped its citizens when they were in trouble in his own city.
The position of proxenos was hereditary in a particular family. Modern honorary consuls fulfill a function, to a degree similar to that of the ancient Greek institution. Consuls were the highest magistrates of the Roman Roman Empire; the term was revived by the Republic of Genoa, unlike Rome, bestowed it on various state officials, not restricted to the highest. Among these were Genoese officials stationed in various Mediterranean ports, whose role included duties similar to those of the modern consul, i. e. helping Genoese merchants and sailors in difficulties with the local authorities. The consolat de mar was an institution established under the reign of Peter IV of Aragon in the fourteenth century, spread to 47 locations throughout the Mediterranean, it was a judicial body, administering maritime and commercial law as Lex Mercatoria. Although the consolat de mar was established by the Corts General of the Crown of Aragon, the consuls were independent from the King; this distinction between consular and diplomatic functions remains to this day.
Modern consuls retain limited judicial powers to settle disputes on ships from their country. The consulado de mercaderes was set up in 1543 in Seville as a merchant guild to control trade with Latin America; as such, it had branches in the principal cities of the Spanish colonies. The connection of "consul" with trade and commercial law is retained in French. In Francophone countries, a juge consulaire is a non-professional judge elected by the chamber of commerce to settle commercial disputes in the first instance; the office of a consul is a consulate and is subordinate to the state's main representation in the capital of that foreign country an embassy or – between Commonwealth countries – high commission. Like the terms embassy or high commission, consulate may refer not only to the office of consul, but to the building occupied by the consul and his or her staff; the consulate may share premises with the embassy itself. A consul of the highest rank is termed a consul-general, is appointed to a consulate-general.
There are one or more deputy consuls-general, vice-consuls, consular agents working under the consul-general. A country may appoint more than one consul-general to another nation. Consuls of various ranks may have specific legal authority for certain activities, such as notarizing documents; as such, diplomatic personnel with other responsibilities may receive consular letters patent. Aside from those outlined in the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, there are few formal requirements outlining what a consular official must do. For example, for some countries, consular officials may be responsible for the issue of visas. Nonetheless, consulates proper will be headed by consuls of various ranks if such officials have little or no connection with the more limited sense of consular service. Activities of a consulate include protecting the interests of their citizens temporarily or permanently resident in the host country, issuing passports. However, the principal role of a consulate lies traditionally in promoting trade—assisting companies to invest and to import and export goods and services both inwardly to their home country and outward to their host country.
Although it is not admitted publicly, like embassies, may gather intelligence information from the assigned country. Contrary to popular belief, many of the staff of consulates may be career diplomats, but they do not have diplomatic immunity unless they are accredited as such. Immunities and privileges for consuls and accredited staff of consulates are limited to actions undertaken in their official capacity and, with respect to the consulate itself, to those required for official duties. In practice, the extension and application of consular privileges and immunities can differ from country to country. Consulates are more numerous than diplomatic missions, such as embassies. Ambassadors are posted only in a foreign nation'
Patterson Office Tower
The Patterson Office Tower is a 249-foot high-rise building on the University of Kentucky campus in Lexington, Kentucky. It was completed in 1969 and is named after James Kennedy Patterson, who served as the school's first president from 1869 to 1910, it houses faculty offices and conference rooms, including many of the offices of the College of Arts and Sciences, College of Social Work, Honors at UK, the Dean of Students and Division of Student Affairs. The tower features the Intermezzo Cafe, which serves breakfast and lunch, it is located near the White Hall Classroom Main Building. A statue of Patterson sits near the tower. Construction of the Patterson Office Tower began in 1968 and was completed in 1969, it was named after James Kennedy Patterson, who served as the first president of the University of Kentucky from 1869 to 1910. It replaced the White Hall Dormitory, which stood from 1882 to 1967. Based on a photo printed in the Lexington Herald-Leader, December 1969 was the first time the university's Board Of Trustees met in the building.
In July 2003, a bronze statue of Patterson was relocated to the front of the tower. A fountain existed at the tower, but it was removed in 1999. On February 12, 2016, Australian philosopher David Chalmers visited the campus to give a talk entitled "Perception and Illusion in Virtual Reality" on the 18th floor of the tower. At the end of 2016, about 1,000 ping-pong balls were poured from the roof of the tower to celebrate the end of the semester. More than 100 students stood below, collecting as many balls as they could with plastic bags, open book bags, umbrellas. In an article published on December 11, 2018, by the Lexington Herald-Leader, the tower's 18th floor was mentioned under the heading "recommended capital project". Patterson Office Tower is a 20-story building with 18 floors; the building houses faculty offices and conference rooms, including many of the offices of the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Social Work, Honors at UK, the Dean of Students and Division of Student Affairs.
It includes the Intermezzo Cafe, which serves lunch. The tower features a basement that connects White Hall Classroom Building; the 14th floor of the tower, which provides a space for students to study and make connections with other students with similar interests, was renovated in 2018. The renovations of the floor helped create a new space for students interested in the International Studies Program; the area features a student lounge, a conference room, office space. In 2011, an overflowing urinal caused damage to three floors in the building after a faulty automatic flusher became stuck in the open position, causing flooding on the fourth floor; the water damaged the second and fourth floors, saturating ceiling tiles and carpets, some computers and documents. On May 31, 2013, a flasher was reported on the sixth floor of the building. In 1970, Patterson Office Tower was the site of a protest in response to the Kent State shootings in Kent, Ohio. On April 1, 2011, students held a protest against racism near the tower.
On March 27, 2013, the tower was one of the Fayette County locations for Take Back the Night protests. On April 1, 2014, students protested against privatization of dining services. On December 9, 2014, about 40 students held a die-in on the lobby floor to raise student awareness about the recent deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown. On November 9, 2016, students held a protest against Donald Trump after he was elected president on November 8. Patterson Office Tower Campus Guide – Patterson Office Tower Intermezzo
The Digital Classicist is a community of those interested in the application of Digital Humanities to the field of Classics and to ancient world studies more generally. The project claims the twin aims of bringing together scholars and students with an interest in computing and the ancient world, disseminating advice and experience to the Classics discipline at large; the Digital Classicist was founded in 2005 as a collaborative project based at King's College London and the University of Kentucky, with editors and advisors from the Classics discipline at large. Many notable Classicists and Digital Humanists are on the advisory board of the Digital Classicist, including Richard Beacham, Alan Bowman, Gregory Crane, Bernard Frischer, Michael Fulford, Willard McCarty, James O'Donnell, Silvio Panciera and Boris Rankov. A former member was the late Ross Scaife; the Digital Classicist community have taken an active role in posting news to the long-standing blog of the Stoa Consortium, which concerns itself with both Classical and Digital Humanities topics.
A particular focus seems to be the Open Source and Creative Commons movements, various communities of scholars with digital interests. The Digital Classicist discussion list is hosted by JISCmail in the UK. Most list traffic consists of announcements and calls, with occasional flurries of more involved discussion; the main website of the Digital Classicist is a gateway containing links to the Digital Classicist Wiki and other resources, including listings for seminars and conference panels. The seminar programmes include: abstract, audio and, from 2013, video recordings; the project Wiki contains lists of digital Classics projects, software tools that have been made available for classicists, a FAQ that solicits collaborative community advice on a range of topics from simple questions about, e.g. Greek fonts and Unicode, word-processing and printing issues, to more advanced Humanities Computing questions and project management advice; the Wiki is hosted on the servers of the Centre for Computing in the Humanities at King's College London The members of the Digital Classicist community report quite on any conference and seminar activity that they take to reflect well on the project as a whole.
Among the events cited are a series of summer seminars which have run each year since 2006 at the Institute of Classical Studies in London, panels at the Classical Association Annual Conference in Birmingham 2007 Glasgow 2009, Durham 2011 and the Digital Resources in the Humanities and Arts conference in September 2008. The Project was among the sponsors of the Open Source Critical Editions workshop in 2006. In 2008 the Digital Medievalist published a collaborative issue of Digital Classicist articles in memory of Ross Scaife. A collection of papers from the 2007 seminar series and conference panels have been published by Ashgate: Digital Research in the Study of Classical Antiquity. More recent papers have been collected together in a Bulletin of the Institute of Classical Studies: Mahony and Dunn 2013The Digital Classicist 2013 London BICS Supplement-122 Institute of Classical Studies.
