Major League Baseball rivalries

Rivalries in the Major League Baseball have occurred between many teams and cities. Rivalries have arisen for many different reasons, the primary ones including geographic proximity, familiarity with opponents, various incidents, cultural, linguistic, or national pride. In the "Original 16" era, there were eight teams in each league and teams in each league played each other 22 times a season. With the second American League incarnation of the Washington Senators and the Los Angeles Angels entering play as expansion teams in 1961, MLB increased the total number of games American League teams played to 162, which meant teams would play each other 18 times a season; the National League did not implement this until the following year when the New York Mets and Houston Colt.45s entered play. In 1969, with the San Diego Padres, Seattle Pilots, Kansas City Royals, Montreal Expos entering play as expansion teams, MLB split both leagues into two divisions with six teams each. Teams played a total of 90 intra-divisional games, playing teams within the division 18 times each and 72 inter-divisional games, playing each team in the other division 12 times.

However, in 1977, the addition of the Seattle Mariners and Toronto Blue Jays reduced the number of intra-divisional games American League teams played to 78, as each team would play each team within the division 13 times. However, they still played each team in the other division 12 times, but the total number of inter-divisional games increased to 84; the National League did not institute this until 1993, when the Florida Marlins and Colorado Rockies entered play. In 1994, MLB kept the 1993 format in scheduling. In 1997, with the MLB adopting interleague play, the schedules were changed; the schedule for interleague play comprised 84 three-game series, namely six series for each of fourteen AL teams and as many as six for each of 16 NL teams. MLB changed its scheduling format in 2001, further intensifying division matchups throughout the league; the new "unbalanced schedule" allowed for additional games in each season between divisional rivals, replacing additional series with teams outside the division.

Due to the change, division rivals now played each other 17 or more times each season. The scheduling drew criticism both when it was enacted and after the fact, with some analysts positing that the unbalanced schedule hurt intra-divisional play. With the Astros moving to the American League West in 2013, MLB changed its scheduling formula as a result of each division having five teams. Teams play a total of 76 intra-divisional games, playing teams within the division 19 times each, six or seven games against other teams in their leagues and 20 interleague games; the move of the Astros led to interleague play throughout the season. The number of interleague games against natural rivals was reduced from six to four; the Red Sox–Yankees rivalry is one of the oldest, most famous and fiercest rivalries in American sports. For more than 100 years, the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees have been intense rivals; the rivalry is a heated subject of conversation in the Northeastern United States. Since the inception of the wild card team and an added Division Series, the AL East rivals have squared off in the American League Championship Series three times, with the Yankees winning in 1999 and 2003 and the Sox winning in 2004.

In addition, the teams have twice met in the last regular-season series of a season to decide the league title, in 1904 and 1949. The teams finished tied for first in 1978, when the Yankees won a high-profile one-game playoff for the division title; the 1978 division race is memorable for the Red Sox having held a 14-game lead over the Yankees more than halfway through the season. The 2004 ALCS is famous for the Yankees leading 3–0 and losing a best-of-7 series; the Red Sox comeback is the only time in baseball history to date that a team has come back from a 3–0 deficit to win a series. The rivalry is termed the "greatest rivalry in all of sports." Games between the two teams generate a great deal of interest and get extensive media coverage, including being broadcast on national television. In the stands it is common for Yankees fans and Red Sox fans to taunt each other and more than get into fistfights, so security at both Yankee Stadium and Fenway Park is heavy when either team comes to town.

Since 2000, the rivalry between the Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays has intensified, despite the fact that, as of 2020, the Rays have only existed for 22 years. The two teams met in the 2008 ALCS with the Rays winning the series en route to their first World Series appearance; the two teams have had many notable incidents over the years, including: August 29, 2000: The Devil Rays' Gerald Williams is hit by a pitch thrown by the Red Sox' Pedro Martínez. Williams charges the mound and lands a right hook on Martinez, the benches clear. September 29, 2000: Rays closer Roberto Hernandez strikes out the Red Sox' Trot Nixon, eliminating the Sox from playoff contention. May 5, 2002: Nixon throws his bat at Rays pitcher Ryan Rupe, who had hit the Sox' Nomar Garciaparra and Shea Hillenbrand earlier in the game. Red Sox pitcher Frank Castillo dove into the ensuing melee, was suspended for five games. Rupe got away with a fine. April 24, 2005: The third game of a Rays/Red Sox series saw Bronson Arroyo hit Aubrey Huff.

Static induction thyristor

The static induction thyristor is a thyristor with a buried gate structure in which the gate electrodes are placed in n-base region. Since they are on-state, gate electrodes must be negatively or anode biased to hold off-state, it has low distortion, high audio frequency power capability. The turn-on and turn-off times are short 0.25 microseconds. The first static induction thyristor was invented by Japanese engineer Jun-ichi Nishizawa in 1975, it had a small turn-off time. It had a self controlled gate turn-off thyristor, commercially available through Tokyo Electric Co. in 1988. The initial device consisted of a buried p + grid. In 1999, an analytical model of the SITh was developed for the PSPICE circuit simulator. In 2010, a newer version of SITh was developed by Zhang Caizhen, Wang Yongshun, Liu Chunjuan and Wang Zaixing, the new feature of, its high forward blocking voltage.

Asterix at the Olympic Games

Asterix at the Olympic Games is the 12th comic book album in the Asterix series. Serialized in Pilote issues 434–455 in 1968, it was translated into English in 1972; the story satirizes performance-enhancing drug usage in sports. Gluteus Maximus, an athletic Roman legionary, is chosen as one of Rome's representatives for the upcoming Olympic Games in Greece. Gaius Veriambitius, his centurion, hopes to share in the glory of Olympic victory. While training in the forest, Gluteus Maximus encounters Asterix and Obelix, who unintentionally outdo him at running, the javelin and boxing, thanks to the power of the magic potion. Demoralised, he consigns himself to sweeping the Roman camp instead of training; when Veriambitius asks Vitalstatistix that Gluteus Maximus be left alone, Vitalstatistix decides the Gauls should enter the Olympic Games as well. Veriambitius argues they cannot, as Romans are the only non-Greeks allowed, but Asterix rationalizes that as Gaul is part of the Roman Empire, they are technically Romans, making them a Gallo-Roman team, demoralising the centurion and his legionary further.

The Gauls hold trials. They decide to register only Asterix and Obelix as competitors; the entire male population of the village travels to Olympia, where Asterix and Obelix register as athletes and the others all enjoy a holiday. When Gluteus Maximus and Veriambitius discover the Gauls have come to compete, they are left in despair, this despair spreads among all the Roman athletes, they give up training and spend all their time having elaborate parties, washing their uniforms and sweeping the whole area. The scent from their feasts causes the Greek competitors to complain about their own healthy food. Alarmed, the Greeks send a judge to warn the Romans that if they think drinking will somehow make them better athletes, it will be held against them as all artificial stimulants are forbidden, prompting Veriambitius to tell him about the Gauls' magic potion; the Gauls are dejected by the news that victory is not as certain as they had expected, but Asterix decides to compete anyway. Obelix, being permanently affected by the potion, now cannot compete and anyway doesn't quite understand what's going on – he thinks he's been dismissed just because he fell into a cauldron and wonders if telling the officials he fell into a regular pot or amphora will change anything.

At the games and the Roman athletes are beaten at every turn by the Greeks, causing a dilemma to the Olympic officials. Although their victories prove what they've believed all along, too much success will reflect badly on the country's reputation, so they announce a special race for just Romans. After the announcement and Getafix start talking loudly, about a cauldron of magic potion left in an unguarded shed. Eager to win, the other Roman athletes steal the potion that night; the race begins, the Roman athletes beat Asterix. After the race, Getafix accuses them of having used magic potion and, when the Romans deny the accusation, Asterix sticks his tongue out at them; when the Romans return the gesture, it is revealed that Getafix had added an extra ingredient to this particular batch of potion and the Romans now have blue tongues from drinking it. They are disqualified, Asterix is declared the winner; the Gauls return home for their traditional banquet. Getafix notices Asterix hasn't brought his Palm of Victory home.

Asterix explains he gave it to someone who needed it more: Gluteus Maximus, whose apparent victory is shown to have pleased Julius Caesar promoting Maximus to centurion and Veriambitius to tribune. A live action movie of this book was released in France on January 2008 to coincide with the Beijing Olympics. Though it is similar to the original story, there are some differences; the main one being instead of the whole village taking part in the games, Only Asterix, Getafix, a new character named Lovesix take part in the games in order for Lovesix to win the heart of princess Irina and to show his worthiness. There is another subplot about Julius Caesar's son Brutus who wants to marry the princess and wants to overthrow his father and take over the Roman empire. Authors Rene Goscinny and Albert Uderzo appear on page 29 in a carved bas-relief at the front of the Olympic Village. Goscinny is calling Uderzo a'despot' and Uderzo replies with'tyrant'; the two are pacifying a bull. On Goodreads, it has a score of 4.13 of 5.

Mud Bay Indian Shaker Church

Mud Bay Indian Shaker Church is the first church built by the Indian Shaker Church. The first Shaker Indian church called the "mother church", was built c. 1885 near Olympia the capital of Washington Territory. The structure was built on a shoulder of the Black Hills above Mud Bay, at the southern end of Eld Inlet, an arm of Puget Sound, it was near the homes of Louis "Mud Bay Louie" Yowaluch and his brother Sam "Mud Bay Sam" Yowaluch, co-founders of the church and second "headman"s respectively. Mud Bay Sam was the first Bishop after incorporation of Shaker Indian Church in 1910; the original church was oriented in an east-west direction, in a manner that would set the pattern for subsequent church architecture. The earliest several churches were about 18-by-24-foot plain wooden buildings with 10-foot shingle roofs, stout wooden doors and floors; the Mud Bay church was rebuilt in 1910.
