In 1127 or 1128 Pope Honorius II promoted him to the suburbicarian See of Sabina, he was given this position for siding with Honorius II during a dispute over the appointment of a new abbot for Farfa. He had taken part in the double papal election of 1130, had been one of the most determined opponents of Antipope Anacletus II and, when Pope Innocent II fled to France, had been left behind as his vicar in Italy. At the time of his election to the papacy in July 1153 he was Dean of the College of Cardinals and the oldest member of that body. During his short pontificate he played the part of a peacemaker. Anastasius IV devoted much time and expenses on the Lateran Basilica and Palace back at Rome.

Sphaerius is a genus of beetles, comprising 23 species, which are the only members of the family Sphaeriusidae. They are found along the edges of streams and rivers, where they feed on algae. Three species occur in the United States; the overall form of the beetle is convex, dark brown or black with some markings possible. The head is prominent, with large eyes set far apart, capitate antennae. Total length ranges from 0.5–1.2 mm. The beetles occur in a variety of damp environments, including mud, under stones, among plant roots and leaf litter, in mosses in bogs, they store some air underneath their elytra. Females produce a single large egg at a time; the family used to be known as "Sphaeriidae", but the name was preoccupied by a family of freshwater clams. The name was inappropriately replaced with "Microsporidae", but this act has been superseded by a return to the use of Sphaerius and a reformation of the family name as Sphaeriusidae; the position of the family within Coleoptera has changed a number of times.

Graub√ľndner Kantonalbank

The Graubundner Kantonalbank is a Swiss cantonal bank, part of the 24 cantonal banks serving Switzerland's 26 cantons. The headquarters are located in Chur, there are 67 branches around Graubünden. Graubündner Kantonalbank was founded in 1870. Just seven years in 1877, it helped fund an Alpine Road to bring more tourism to its homeland area. In the great depression around 1919, the bank financially helped and supported the Swiss population, when the post-wars boom came in 1945, it poured money into providing better public services. After a successful computerisation in the 1970s, the bank introduced its first automated teller machines in 1983. On September 10, 1985 GKB was listed on the Swiss Stock Exchange. In 1998 it received in writing a guarantee from the Swiss government of 100% back-up for its savers money. In the same year GKB purchased the private Zurich bank Bellerive. In more recent times, the company has begun working with the Private Client Bank in Zurich; the Graubundner Kantonalbank offers a range of products based at different parts of the market.

It offers an account for young people, one for private banking for normal Swiss citizens and outside. They offer a business banking scheme

Johannes Hallmann studied agricultural sciences with a focus on plant production at the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn. At this university, he was promoted in 1994, where he was habilitated with Venia legendi in the field of plant diseases. Research stays led him to To the American Auburn University in Alabama, the Nuriootpa Research Center in Australia, to Kenyatta University & ICIPE in Kenya, he worked as a FAO consultant for Farmers Field School in Indonesia at the Department of Plant and Microbial Biology at the Department of Plant and Microbial Biology at the Yezin Agricultural University, Myanmar, as well as at the Twinning Project: Strengthening the Phytosanitary Inspection to Croatia and Ukraine.

Since 2005, he has been teaching at the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn in the field of phytomedicine as a lecturer. Since 2006 he is lecturer at the University of Kassel, from 2014 as Apl.
