Peninsular Malaysia

Peninsular Malaysia known as Malaya or West Malaysia, is the part of Malaysia which lies on the Malay Peninsula and surrounding islands. Its area is 132,265 square kilometres, nearly 40% of the total area of the country - or larger than England, it shares a land border with Thailand to Singapore at the southernmost tip. Across the Strait of Malacca to the west lies the Sumatra Island and across the South China Sea to the east lies the Natuna Islands. Peninsular Malaysia accounts for the majority of Malaysia's economy. Peninsular Malaysia consists of the following 11 states and two federal territories: Northern Region: Perlis, Penang, Perak East Coast Region: Kelantan, Pahang, Central Region: Selangor, federal territories of Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya Southern Region: Negeri Sembilan, Johor Peninsular Malaysia is known as West Malaysia or the States of Malaya; the majority of people on Peninsular Malaysia are ethnic Malays, predominantly Muslim. Large Chinese and Indian populations exist; the Orang Asli are the indigenous people of Peninsular Malaysia.

As of 2012, Peninsular Malaysia oil production stood at 520,000 barrel of oil equivalent per day. The term East Coast is used in Malaysia to describe the following states in Peninsular Malaysia facing the South China Sea, a component of the Pacific Ocean: Kelantan Pahang TerengganuThe term West Coast refers informally to a collection of states in Peninsular Malaysia situated towards the western coast facing the Strait of Malacca, a component of the Indian Ocean, as opposed to the East Coast. Unlike the East Coast, the West Coast is partitioned further into three regions, including: The Northern Region: Perlis, Kedah and Perak; the Central Region: Selangor and the federal territories of Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya. The Southern Region: Negeri Sembilan and Johor. Though Johor has a coastline facing the South China Sea on the Pacific Ocean, it is not regarded as an East Coast state, since the main coastline of the state is located on the Straits of Johor of the Indian Ocean; the distinction between West and East Malaysia goes beyond the sphere of geography.

Being separate regions administratively before the formation of the Malaysia, there exists more autonomy than the original States of Malaya, e.g. in having a different judicial court structure and separate immigration regulations. These rights were granted as part of Sarawak's 18-point agreement and Sabah's 20-point agreement with the Federation of Malaya during the formation of expanded federation.

Billy Clanton

William Harrison Clanton was an outlaw Cowboy in Cochise County, Arizona Territory. He, along with his father Newman Clanton and brother Ike Clanton, worked a ranch near the boomtown of Tombstone, Arizona Territory and stole livestock from Mexico and U. S. ranchers. He was a member of group of loosely organized outlaws who had ongoing conflicts with lawmen Wyatt and Morgan Earp; the Clantons threatened the Earps because they interfered with the Cowboys' illegal activities. On October 26, 1881, Tom McLaury, Frank McLaury were killed in the Gunfight at the O. K. Corral in the town of Tombstone, his brother Ike ran from the gunfight. The shootout was his only gunfight. Ike filed murder charges against the Earps, who were exonerated as having acted within their duty as lawmen. Clanton was born in Hamilton County, one of seven children of Newman Haynes Clanton and his wife Mariah Sexton Clanton: John Wesley, Joseph Issac, Phineas Fay, Alonzo Peter, Mary Elise and Ester Ann, his father worked at times as a day laborer, a gold miner, a farmer, by the late 1870s, a cattleman in Arizona Territory.

1851 Newman Clanton moves his family to Illinois. The family moved to California after the end of the Civil War. Clanton's mother died in 1866. Clanton moved with his family in 1873 to Pima County, Arizona Territory and to Charleston, his father started the "Clanton Ranch" in 1877. In the same year prospector Ed Schieffelin discovered silver in the hills east of the San Pedro River on a plateau known as Goose Flats, less than 15 miles from the Clanton ranch; the boom town of Tombstone grew within two years from less than 100 to more than 7,000 residents. Billy Clanton and his brother Ike went into Tombstone on weekends, he did business in Tombstone associated with the ranch, alongside the two McLaury brothers. By most accounts, Ike was not well liked in and around Tombstone because he was a drunk and a braggart. Clanton was well liked and looked upon as hard working and level headed. A few days after Wyatt Earp's arrival in Tombstone in December 1879, one of his prized horses was stolen, he heard several times.

A year he got a tip that it had been seen at the Clanton's ranch near Charleston. Earp saw the horse being ridden down the street and placed in a corral, he stabled his horse at another corral and telegraphed James Earp in Tombstone to send up ownership papers for the horse to Charleston. Warren Earp brought the papers out that night. Earp testified in a court hearing, "While I was waiting for the papers, Billy Clanton found out that I was in town and went and tried to take the horse out of the corral. I told him that it was my horse. After the papers came, he gave the horse up without the papers being served, asked me if I had any more horses to lose."In July 1879, several rustlers attacked a rancho in northern Sonora, killing several of the inhabitants. Hunting the murderers, Mexican Rurales led by Commandant Francisco Neri illegally crossed the border into Arizona and were ambushed. Johnny Ringo said that Old Man Clanton and his sons Ike and Billy were among the murderers. On August 13, 1881, Billy's father was killed in an ambush Guadalupe Canyon by Mexican Rurales.

The Clanton sons continued operating the ranch. On October 25, 1881, Ike and the McLaury brothers headed to Tombstone after working to gather scattered cattle, lost during an earlier Apache raid; the events that transpired over that night and the next day have various versions. Ike had repeated confrontations with the Earps and Doc Holliday. On October 26, 1881, events came to a head when Billy and Ike got together with Billy Claiborne and brothers Tom and Frank McLaury at the Dexter Corral; when they were seen in town "heeled", anxious citizens warned the Earps. Upon attempting to disarm the Cowboys, a shootout broke out named the Gunfight at the O. K. Corral. There remain today conflicting versions of what happened and who fired first. Ike Clanton and Billy Claiborne ran away in the opening moments. Billy Clanton was killed along with both McLaurys. Doc Holliday and Morgan Earp were wounded in the shootout; the town was divided, with many supporting the Clantons, others supporting the Earps. The funeral that followed was the largest in Tombstone's history, with more than 300 people following the hearse and 2,000 watching from the city's sidewalks.

The three Cowboys were buried in the Boot Hill cemetery. William McLaury and Tom's brother, tried to indict the Earps for killing the Cowboys, he wrote in a letter during the preliminary hearing that the two brothers and Billy Clanton were preparing to come to Fort Worth, Texas to visit after selling their cattle. On screen Billy has been portrayed by James Ferrara in Tombstone, the Town Too Tough to Die, John Ireland in My Darling Clementine, Dennis Hopper in Gunfight at the O. K. Corral, Ralph Reed and Gary Gray in The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp, David Cole in the Doctor Who episode The Gunfighters, Bruce M.

Aitken House

Aitken House is a Canadian all-male residence, located on the University of New Brunswick's Fredericton campus. It has since been a prominent member of UNB's residence community; the house holds many traditions such as their Club Med beach party, their house dance to the song "Shout" by the Isley Brothers, their house cheer. Aitken House is the only residence at UNB to have their own alumni association, has celebrated their 55th anniversary, which saw Aitken brothers from 1958-2013 attend. Built in 1958 with funding provided by Maxwell Aitken A. K. A. Lord Beaverbrook, Aitken house was the second residence to be built on the UNB Fredericton campus. In the winter of 2007, UNB Residential Life & Conferencing Services decided that due to a lack of enrollment in residence, they would close Aitken House and attempt to sell it to the University to be turned into an academic building. Although the residence community had seen many buildings come and go throughout its lifetime, the residents and alumni of Aitken House were not ready to let it go without a fight.

The majority of the residence community showed their support to keep Aitken House alive through painting red A's in their windows, flying banners, attending meetings. There were those who supported ResLife's position and the campus newspaper's letters to the editor section was filled with controversy every week. Throughout the remainder of that academic year, the supporters of Aitken appealed at many meetings to stop the sale of the house, but to their dismay they were unable to stop it along the way. It progressed all the way through to the UNB Board of Governors meeting, a step, just a formality. Traditionally only the members of the BOG are allowed to be present during a meeting but they allowed the house to make a presentation as to why the residence building should be spared; as the members of the BOG entered the Wu Center for their meeting, they were greeted by Aitken House residents and supporters from other residences at UNB, all lined up beside each entrance. The meeting went on. For the first time in UNB BOG's history, a decision was overturned and the House was saved.

Aitken House always has a good showing at each sporting event, is number one among the other UNB residences. Aitken House competes in many of UNB's intramural athletics; every year the house is found at such sporting events as: Outdoor & Indoor Soccer, Softball & Co-Rec Softball, Flag football, Volleyball & Co-Rec Volleyball, Water Polo, Ball Hockey & Ice Hockey, Co-Rec Ultimate Frisbee, Broom Ball. Aitken House is built on a number of traditions, year after year; some of the traditions include: Club Med - 22 tons of sand is passed, bucket by bucket, into the basement, where a gigantic beach party takes place, every November. Aitken Week - One week in January where the house celebrates its history and alumni. Shout - Aitken's song of choice. A special dance accompanies each time it is played. House Cheer - Performed to the Mickey Mouse theme song, all residents chant this with pride. Blood Donor Clinics on Campus - Aitken residents volunteer at every blood donor clinic on campus. Car Smash - Teamed up with AIDS NB, the house charity, a car is donated, covered in spray-painted stigmas smashed to pieces by way of auction.
