Polytechnic University of Catalonia

The Polytechnic University of Catalonia referred to as BarcelonaTech, known as UPC, is the largest engineering university in Catalonia, Spain. It offers programs in other disciplines such as mathematics and architecture. UPC's objectives are based on internationalization, as it is one of Europe's technical universities with the most international PhD students and the university with the largest share of international master's degree students. UPC is a university aiming at achieving the highest degree of engineering/technical excellence and has bilateral agreements with several top-ranked European universities. UPC is a member of the Top Industrial Managers for Europe network, which allows for student exchanges between leading European engineering schools, it is a member of several university federations, including the Conference of European Schools for Advanced Engineering Education and Research and UNITECH. The university was founded in March 1971 as the Universitat Politècnica de Barcelona through the merger of engineering and architecture schools founded in the 19th century.

As of 2007 it has 25 schools in Catalonia located in the cities of Barcelona, Manresa, Sant Cugat del Vallès, Igualada, Vilanova i la Geltrú and Mataró. As of the academic year 2017-18, the UPC has over 30,000 students and over 3,000 teaching and research staff, 65 undergraduate programs, 73 graduate programs and 49 doctorate programs. UPC is ranked as one of the leading European universities in the technology and engineering fields. U. S. News & World Report, for instance, ranks it as the world's 36th for Computer Science and 60th for Engineering.. The QS World University Rankings place the UPC among the world's 50 best universities in disciplines such as Architecture, Civil Engineering and Electronic Engineering, Telecommunications Engineering, Instruments Science and Technology and Remote Sensing..

Royal Bavarian Infantry Lifeguards Regiment

The Royal Bavarian Infantry Lifeguards Regiment was a household-lifeguard regiment of the Bavarian kings from the end of the Napoleonic Wars until the fall of the Wittelsbach monarchy and the subsequent disbanding of the Bavarian army. Before the actual Lifeguards Regiment, two infantry regiments in Bavaria held this name: from 1684 to 1778, the unit that became the Royal Bavarian Infantry Regiment No. 10 from 1778 to 1811, the unit that became the Royal Bavarian Infantry Regiment No. 1 The regiment was created by Royal Decree on 16 July 1814 as the Grenadier-Garde-Regiment from the grenadier companies of the Bavarian line infantry regiments. The tallest men were transferred to the Grenadier Guards Regiment, the rest to the "König" Royal Bavarian Infantry Regiment Nr. 1. The regiment consisted of 3 battalions of 6 companies each; the first Colonel-Commandant was Franz Freiherr von Hertling, in command until 11 February 1824. On 13 April 1815 the regiment received its colours in Munich. A field battalion was established from all battalions on 14 April 1815 and deployed for guard duties under the 6th Royal Bavarian Reserve Infantry Brigade in Mannheim and Auxerre.

After the armistice, the 2nd and 3rd battalion were transferred to Auxerre. On 22 September 1815 the colours were blessed in the cathedral of Auxerres; the regiment's garrison city was Munich, at times individual battalions of the regiment were stationed elsewhere. After the death of Maximilian I Joseph, his son and heir Ludwig I decreed the abolition of the expensive Guard regiments; the regiment from 6 December 1825 held the name "Line Infantry Lifeguard Regiment", consisting of 2 battalions of 6 companies each. From 28 October 1835 it was named the "Infantry Lifeguard Regiment", without a Regiment number, it stood at the head of the infantry in the order of precedence. In practice, however, it maintained its "Guard" status. "Leiber" became a nickname for members of the Regiment. In 1848 the 3rd battalion was re-established; the regiment was placed on high alert on 4 April 1848 during the confusion of the Revolution, took up positions in front of the ruler's residence. On 30 June 1848, Jakob Ermarth, was appointed Colonel-Commandant.

The 1st and 2nd battalions were transferred on 5 October 1848 to Sigmaringen in Marsch, to protect Charles, Prince of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen and to depose the provisional government there. After similar deployments under an "observation corps" in the area of Ulm and Günzburg, the battalions returned by 31 December 1849 to Munich. For the regiment's 50th anniversary on 16 July 1864, its officers and the Colonel-Commandant Karl Graf von Spreti held a banquet in the Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten in Munich, its non-commissioned officers and enlisted ranks received an allowance of 500 guilders from King Ludwig II, 100 guilders from Prince Otto. In 1866 in the Austro-Prussian War, with Bavaria fighting on the Austrian side, the regiment was not deployed as a whole. After 4 battles, the regiment counted 17 dead and 136 wounded, with the Colonel having been replaced, unusually, by the non-aristocratic Adalbert Högenstaller after the first of these battles. In the Franco-Prussian War the whole regiment was assigned to the 1st Brigade, thus to the 1st Division.

At Lechfeld, it 2879 men ready for action. In the battles of Wörth on 6 August 1870 and Sedan on 1 September the regiment was at the centre of the fighting and suffered a few casualties. For the actions at Sedan the commander of the III battalion, Major Joseph Graf von Ioner-Tettenweiß, was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Military Order of Max Joseph. After the battle at Artenay on 10 October 1870 the regiment occupied Orléans on 11 October, but had to give it up again on 9 November 1870 in the face of far superior French forces, the Armée de la Loire; the cautious but brave actions of Captain Karl Hoffmann, head of the 9th Company of the regiment, in the Battle of Villepion on 1 December 1870 prevented a breakthrough by superior French units, held the endangered position until the end of that day. He was awarded the Knight's Cross of the Military Order of Max Joseph. On 2 December 1870, the regiment proved itself in the bloody Battle of Loigny-Poupry, for which First Lieutenant Hermann Ehrne von Melchthal received a Knight's Cross for bravery in the face of the enemy.

The regiment recaptured Orléans the following day. On 7 December 1870 Second Lieutenant Friedrich Krieger, head of the 11th Company, repelled an attack by superior French forces on an artillery unit at Lemons and engaged in a counter-attack on his own initiative, he captured numerous French soldiers and an enemy artillery battery. On the same day Second Lieutenant Alfred Meyer distinguished himself through his brave actions in a battle at Le Bardon, resulting in the award of a Knight's Cross on 24 May 1871. In the Battle of Beaugency on 8 December 1870, the regiment held its positions against the French attacks; the regiment was kept on alert during the siege of Paris, but did not have to intervene in the fighting. The regiment had fielded 66 officers and 2879 men at the start of the war.

Be silent, sorrow ... be silent

Be silent, sorrow... be silent is a 1918 Soviet film directed by Pyotr Chardynin, starring Vera Kholodnaya, Ossip Runitsch, Vitold Polonsky and Vladimir Maksimov. The film is in two parts. Paula is a circus performer married to clown-acrobat Lorio. Lorio drinks and he is critically injured when he performs drunk; the crippled Lorio and Paula are forced to become street musicians. A group of wealthy young men who had seen Paula at the circus decide to invite the two to perform at their private "bachelor" party, at which Paula is the main attraction; the young men vie for her attention, give her an expensive necklace and offer Lorio money to turn her over to them. Outraged, Paula refuses to return to the streets to perform, but when they are destitute, she returns to offer herself to one of the gentlemen, the artist Volyntsev. As Lorio sinks deeper into poverty, Paula enjoys her life as a rich man's mistress – for a while, her lover becomes too possessive for her taste, tires of her. When Volyntsev attempts to offer her to a younger rival, Paula leaves him for another young man – Zaritskiy, in love with her.

Zaritskiy is an inveterate gambler, playing against Telepnev, he has lost a huge sum of money. Desperate, he devises a plot to steal a cheque. While Paula unwittingly serves as decoy, distracting the party by singing for the guests, her lover sets off the alarm as he attempts to break into the safe. Telepnev doesn't recognise Zaritskiy in the dark room, shoots him, thus concludes the first part. The second part is considered to be lost.
