Vasilije Romanovich and Jov Vasilijevich

Vasilije Romanovič and Jov Vasilijevič were accomplished icon painters who came from Imperial Russia to Srem on an invitation from the Arsenije IV Jovanović Šakabenta together with a group of Serbian newly graduated academic artists of the Kiev Pechersk Lavra. Romanovič became part of the teaching staff of a newly-constructed Academy of Painting and funded by the metropolitan, while Vasiljevič became a court painter of the Metropolitanate of Karlovci. Romanovič settled in the Monastery of Hopovo where he became tonsured as a monk and where he died in 1773, his painting can be found in every church and monastery throughout Fruska Gora and other neighbouring regions, including Besenovo Monastery, Pravoslavna Crkva Roždestva Presvete Bogorodice, Serbian Orthodox church in Slatinski DrenovacBogorodicina crkva in Morović and many others. Vasiljevič wall-painted the Monastery of Krušedol. In the narthex, the old fresco painting of Krušedol was replaced with the new one in 1750 and in 1751 the painting of the altar area was completed.

The wall painting of the naos, completed in 1756 was done by another graduate of the painting school of Kiev Pecharsk Lavra, Arad-born Stefan Tenecki, who arrived from Imperial Russia at the same time after a four-year study absence.

Johnny Baseball

Johnny Baseball: The New Red Sox Musical is a musical with a book by Richard Dresser and a score by brothers Robert Reale and Willie Reale. The story involves circumstances relating to the Curse of the Bambino; the musical had a preview run in Massachusetts that began on May 14, 2010. The musical's world premiere was on June 2, 2010 at the Loeb Drama Center of the American Repertory Theater. Called Red Sox Nation, Johnny Baseball was conceived after the Red Sox’s stunning collapse in the 2003 playoffs due to the "Curse", cited as a reason for the failure of the Boston Red Sox baseball team to win the World Series in the 86-year period from 1918 until 2004; the Curse is traced to the interactions of three people: the fictional Johnny O'Brien, a hard-luck right-hander on the 1919 Red Sox. The show is told through flashbacks between the fourth game of the 2004 American League Championship Series and the fictional life of Johnny O'Brien; the musical ends with David Ortiz ending the Curse in 2004.

Hill o' Many Stanes

The Hill O Many Stanes is a south-facing hillside in Mid Clyth, about 14 kilometres south of Wick in Caithness, in the Highland area of Scotland, which has about 200 upright stones, none more than a metre high, set out in rows running north and south with the incline. The rows are not parallel and they create a fan-shaped pattern; this arrangement is believed to be a relic of Bronze Age times. From the northern end of the rows, on a clear day, hills along the coast of Banffshire can be seen across the Moray Firth, some 80 kilometres away. If the night sky is clear the moon in its most southerly rising position will be seen over those same hills. In Megalithic Lunar Observatories Alexander Thom presented evidence that the stone rows were in effect a Bronze Age lunar observatory, tracking lunar movements over a cycle of 18.6 years. However, more than twenty similar stone rows are now known in Caithness and Sutherland and none of the others has been linked with astronomical observations. In Britain stone rows of this kind are unknown outside Caithness and Sutherland, but similar rows of much taller stones are found in Brittany.
