The Illinois gubernatorial election of 1872 was the fifteenth election for this office. Republican nominee, Former Governor Richard J. Oglesby defeated the Democratic and Liberal Republican nominee Gustavus Koerner. B. G. Wells represented Independent Democrats unwilling to ally with Liberal Republicans. Oglesby had agreed to run for the Governorship but to resign upon being elected so that Lt. Governor John Lourie Beveridge could assume the office. Oglesby was in turn appointed to the U. S. Senate. At this time in Illinois history, the Lieutenant Governor was elected on a separate ballot from the governor; this would remain so until the 1970 constitution.

Air Australia

Strategic Airlines Pty Ltd, trading as Air Australia Airways was an Australian airline flying domestic and international scheduled passenger flights. Strategic Aviation, a sister company, flew air charter flights using the Air Australia fleet or other leased aircraft. Both companies had their head office in a suburb of Brisbane. Air Australia halted all flights and was placed into voluntary administration on 17 February 2012, into liquidation on 23 March 2012. Founded in 1991 as an air freight broker and trading as Air Charter Logistics, Strategic Aviation Pty Ltd was established by Executive Director, Shaun Aisen; the company specialised in the transportation of oversize or unique cargo, chartering flights on Antonov An-124s, Ilyushin IL-76s and Boeing 747 freighters. In 2002, Michael James joined the company as equal shareholder. With a background at Ansett and air charter, James assisted the company to bid for the Australian Defence Force Troop Lift Contract. With this diversification, the trading name was dropped and the company rebranded as Strategic.

This contract was serviced with a leased Airbus A330 from Portuguese Airline HiFly utilising Australian crews. Former OzJet operations director David Blake was appointed CEO in 2008 to assist with the expansion of the airline side of the business; the first Australian-registered aircraft, an A330-200, was delivered in July 2009, the Australian Air Operators Certificate was awarded soon after in September. This was complemented by the third A320 in December 2009. In June 2009 Strategic purchased the troubled airline OzJet along with its staff, its Air Operators Certificate and the Perth–Derby RPT route; the route was serviced by a chartered Fokker 100 from Alliance Airlines until Strategic's first Australian-registered Airbus A320 was introduced in early 2010. In February 2011 Executive Director, Shaun Aisen severed his ties with the company leaving Michael James the sole owner. Six months following Aisen's departure from the company six other members of staff left the company as well, namely the chief executive, the chief operating officer and the commercial manager.

The main reason for the sudden exodus was opposing views on how the company was heading under the leadership of James. A former senior-staff member stated, "when there were two owners, they were opposite poles, which worked to the advantage of the business." Aisen's conservative approach was perceived to have balanced out James's different approach to the running of the company. In The Sydney Morning Herald on 2 April 2011, it was first claimed that the airline would change its name by the end of the year, in order to create a brand more identifiable with its Australian roots; the name change was confirmed in August 2011, with the airline planning on becoming a low-cost carrier and announcing service from Brisbane and Melbourne to Honolulu to begin in December 2011. On 17 February 2012 at 1:30am the Strategic Group's directors decided that the Strategic group of companies including Air Australia, Strategic Engineering Australia, Strategic Aviation, would be placed into voluntary administration.

This was brought about because the fuel supplier refused to refuel an aircraft in Phuket, Thailand on 16 February 2012 due to mounting outstanding payments. The airlines' directors appointed KordaMentha as administrators. Air Australia suspended all flights leaving 4,000 passengers stranded in Denpasar and Hawaii, as well as domestically in Australia; these passengers were advised that they would have to make their own travel arrangements at their own expense. KordaMentha found the airline owed creditors up to $90 million but had only $1 million in assets as much of its equipment was leased. Administrator Mark Korda said the airline was "not saleable" and was to go into liquidation; the collapse put 300 employees out of work. On 24 March 2012, the creditors voted to place Air Australia into liquidation; the Strategic Aviation group held licences for air charter and air freight brokerage services under the Strategic Aviation banner, which utilised aircraft from Air Australia and other wet leased aircraft when required.

Air Australia operated scheduled services to: In June 2011 Strategic Airlines applied for rights to fly to the United States with services to commence in September 2011. Strategic announced a 2 per week Brisbane to Honolulu and a 2 per week Melbourne to Honolulu service, to begin on 14 December 2011. Additionally, in May 2011, Strategic Airlines lodged an application with the Australia-based International Air Services Commission for 1,911 seats weekly on the Australia to China route. In its application, the Airline requested the capacity be made available from September 2011 onwards. On 6 June 2011, the International Air Services Commission granted Strategic Airlines 1,911 seats each week on the Australia to China route and media reports suggested that the airline was planning on 3 times weekly services from Brisbane to Beijing or Shanghai. Air Australia had applied to operate four services per week to Vietnam to begin in March 2012 from the IASC; as of May 2010, the fleet consisted of: Strategic's orders for Airbus A330-200s consisted of six for expansion in new markets of China and India from both its Melbourne and Brisbane bases.

And two for Australian market set for delivery in late 2011 and early 2012. In 2010, it was reported that two Australian Defence officers working in the unit responsible for a $30-million-a-year contract to fly Australian troops to the Middle East were providing information during the tender process to Strategic Airlines, declared the winner; the two members, Captain David Charlton and Warrant Officer Class Two John

List of hyolith genera

This list of hyoliths is an attempt to create a comprehensive listing of all genera from the fossil record that have been considered to be members of hyolitha, excluding purely vernacular terms. The list includes all accepted genera, but genera that are now considered invalid, doubtful, or were not formally published, as well as junior synonyms of more established names, genera that are no longer considered hyoliths. Naming conventions and terminology follow the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. Technical terms used include: Junior synonym: A name which describes the same taxon as a published name. If two or more genera are formally designated and the type specimens are assigned to the same genus, the first to be published is the senior synonym, all other instances are junior synonyms. Senior synonyms are used, except by special decision of the ICZN, but junior synonyms cannot be used again if deprecated. Junior synonymy is subjective, unless the genera described were both based on the same type specimen.

Nomen nudum: A name that has appeared in print but has not yet been formally published by the standards of the ICZN. Nomina nuda are invalid, are therefore not italicized as a proper generic name would be. If the name is formally published, that name is no longer a nomen nudum and will be italicized on this list; the formally published name will differ from any nomina nuda that describe the same specimen. Nomen oblitum: A name that has not been used in the scientific community for more than fifty years after its original proposal. Preoccupied name: A name, formally published, but, used for another taxon; this second use is invalid and the name must be replaced. As preoccupied names are not valid generic names, they will go unitalicized on this list. Nomen dubium: A name describing a fossil with no unique diagnostic features; as this can be an subjective and controversial designation, this term is not used on this list.
