SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Pope Eusebius

Pope Eusebius was the Bishop of Rome from 18 April 310 until his death four months later. His pontificate lasted four months, after which, in consequence of disturbances within the Roman Church which led to acts of violence, he was banished by the emperor Maxentius, the ruler of Rome since 306, had at first shown himself friendly to the Christians; the difficulty arose, as in the case of his predecessor Pope Marcellus I, out of his attitude toward the lapsi. Eusebius maintained the attitude of the Roman Church, adopted after the Decian persecutions, that the apostates should not be forever debarred from ecclesiastical communion, but on the other hand, should be readmitted only after doing proper penance; this view was opposed by a faction of Christians in Rome under the leadership of Heraclius. Johann Peter Kirsch believes it that Heraclius was the chief of a party made up of apostates and their followers, who demanded immediate restoration to the Roman Church. Maxentius exiled them both. Eusebius was buried in the catacomb of Callixtus.

Pope Damasus I placed an epitaph of eight hexameters over his tomb because of his firm defense of ecclesiastical discipline and the banishment which he suffered thereby. His feast is celebrated on 26 September. List of popes Novatianism Opera Omnia

Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity

The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity is a global event for those working in creative communications and related fields. It is considered the largest gathering of the advertising and creative communications industry; the five-day festival, incorporating the awarding of the Lions awards, is held yearly at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès in Cannes, France. Each June, around 15,000 registered delegates from 90 countries visit the Festival to celebrate the best of creativity in brand communication, discuss industry issues, network with one another; the week's activities include multiple award ceremonies as well as an closing gala. Inspired by the Cannes Film Festival, staged in Cannes since the late 1940s, a group of cinema screen advertising contractors belonging to the Screen Advertising World Association felt the makers of advertising films should be recognised, they established the International Advertising Film Festival, the first of which took place in Venice, Italy, in September 1954, with 187 film entries from 14 countries.

The lion of the Piazza San Marco in Venice was the inspiration for the Lion trophy. The second festival was held in Monte Carlo, the third in Cannes. After that, the event alternated between Venice and Cannes before settling in the latter in 1984. New categories have been awards in recent years: the Press & Outdoor Lions competition in 1992. However, in recent years, there have been calls from within the industry for the Festival to simplify the entry categories to better reflect the current state of the modern communications world; the festival responded by introducing changes in 2018, including new categories, revising costs and reducing the event from seven days to five. In the 1990s, the Festival added a programme of learning in the form of seminars and workshops. Over the years, this side of the Festival has grown and in 2013 it featured around 130 sessions over 7 days; these included talks from Christopher Bailey, Jack Black, Jenson Button, Nick Cannon, Shepard Fairey, Arianna Huffington, David Karp, Annie Leibovitz.

In 2004, British publisher and conference organiser EMAP plc purchased the festival from French businessman Roger Hatchuel – who had started managing it in 1987 – for a reported £52 million. In June 2014, the Wall Street Journal as well as Campaign Magazine reported on Nimrod Kamer's protestations at Cannes Lions. Philip Thomas is Simon Cook the Managing Director. Thomas is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Ascential Events, under which Cannes Lions operates. Cannes Lions juries are drawn from experts in each field from around the world; each jury is headed by a jury president. They judge submissions in Film, Film Craft, Industry Craft, Digital Craft, Print & Publishing, Direct, Health & Wellness, Radio & Audio, Branded Content & Entertainment, Brand Experience & Activation, Creative eCommerce, Entertainment Lions for Music, PR, Creative Effectiveness, Social & Influencer, Creative Data and Titanium, as well as Glass: The Lion for Change and Sustainable Development Goals. In 2013, the Festival launched a new category called the Innovation Lions, which are supposed to "honour the technology and innovation which facilitates creativity", including recognition of the'Top 10 Startups to Watch'.

Additionally, global start-ups can apply for the Start-up Academy to receive festival passes and access mentorship sessions. Other awards include Holding Company of the Year, Network of the Year, Media Agency of the Year, Agency of the Year, Independent Agency of the Year, Media Person of the Year, New Directors' Showcase, Advertiser of the Year, the Palme d'Or to the best production company. Advertisements are entered by the agencies that created them, although technically anyone can enter any advertising creation, providing it ran within a specified time frame; the jurors are instructed to reward advertising, deemed most creative both in idea and execution. In an article in The Guardian in 2009, WPP boss Sir Martin Sorrell said the Cannes Lions awards were too costly to enter. However, a year he admitted that he had made sure that WPP was "very focused on Cannes" and wanted to be "the leader in terms of awards at Cannes". In 2011, WPP won the first Holding Company of the Year prize at the Festival.

Commenting on this industry recognition, WPP Worldwide Creative Director, John O'Keeffe, said: "Cannes is the only global, cross discipline show, covering advertising, digital, promo and everything else besides. It doesn't aggregate the scores of other shows, so you can't inflate your ranking on the back of just one or two pieces of work. If you are number one at Cannes, you've done it the hard way, the proper way, the only way."In 2013, the "Dumb Ways to Die" a campaign by McCann Australia for Australian company Metro Trains made history by winning a total of five Grands Prix awards, the most awarded to a single piece of work. The Lion of St. Mark is an honour given each year at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity to "someone who has made outstanding contributions to the creative community."

Holt lost her sight at age 17, but said that she found her blindness "no real handicap." Holt was known for being one of the first producers in New York to use racially integrated casts. Holt graduated from Cornell University and found employment as a social worker before becoming frustrated by her inability to create meaningful change on behalf of her clients, she shifted her focus to putting on art exhibitions, said "I found, if any, that my talent lay in organizing."

She was skeptical of the over-reliance on spectacle in other productions of the time, professed her desire to "follow the project of the author in a straightforward way."Playwright Tennessee Williams praised her production of his Orpheus Descending, which he preferred over the film adaptation and previous Broadway production. Holt selected plays to produce by going through submissions with her life partner Frances Drucker, a former high school teacher with whom she had a 20-year relationship, her preference was for "plays of serious content, poetic quality". In 1965, the Cuban-born director Gilberto Zaldívar joined Holt as an associate producer at the Greenwich Mews, becoming co-producer with Drucker after Holt's death.

The touring production was plagued by financial issues, including late payment of the touring company. Holt was blamed for these problems, according to playwright Isaiah Sheffer, "some of her business practices were, to put it mildly questionable... I saw enough hanky-panky and cutting of corners to wonder about her ethics."In the year before her death and Langston Hughes had planned to rename her theater The STELLA Holt/Langston Hughes Theater. Langston Hughes died on May 22, 1967, Stella passed only 3 months the same year, on August 28, it was said she died of a broken heart and “followed him to his grave.” Holt had several other collaborations with leading Black writers of the time, including Loften Mitchell, William Branch, Alice Childress.

Paul Robeson sang her favorite song, “To Dream The Impossible Dream.” Family members: Marjorie Holt, George Holt, Estelle Holt, James John McCluskey Jami Delia McCluskey-Filiault.

Abacoa, Florida

Abacoa is a community in Palm Beach County in the U. S. state of Florida, within the outer city limits of Jupiter. Construction began in 1997 on land once owned by the American businessman John D. MacArthur; the development is an example of the New Urbanism architectural movement in Florida. Abacoa was conceived in 1993, when the MacArthur Foundation proposed the plan to the city of Palm Beach, to be executed on land from MacArthur's endowment; the Foundation opted to partner with a developer. Initial home sales were brisk, with 4,000 of 6,000 units built as of 2009. However, tenancy of retail spaces in Abacoa Town Center were sluggish, with a third of 40-some storefronts, as well as the center's movie theater, shuttered as of 2007. Noted was residents' displeasure that a number of the open establishments were bars that locals found disruptive; the name derives from that of a village of the Jaega tribe of Native Americans, who were present in the area at the time of Spanish contact. Since 2002, Abacoa has hosted the annual Fiesta Maya, based on the traditions of the highland Guatemala town of Jacaltenango, with the participation of the local Jacaltec community as well as students from Florida Atlantic University's Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College.

Abacoa is split into each containing its own style of architecture. At peak, management anticipates Abacoa will contain 6,073 residences, about 3 million square feet of commercial space. Abacoa is home to Roger Dean Stadium, located near the Town Center part of the community, an urban open air street with multiple restaurants. Abacoa is home to Florida Atlantic University's Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College, a Scripps Research Institute sister facility, the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience, the Max Planck Society's first non-European research institute

Leonel Viera Bridge

The Lionel Viera Bridge known as the Puente de la Barra and Maldonado Bridge, is a stressed ribbon bridge linking the cities of Punta del Este and La Barra across the Maldonado River in southern Uruguay. The bridge is a landmark of both the local beach communities and of Uruguay. A man by the last name Martínez, the first owner of the La Barra hotel, La Posta del Cangrejo, convinced the Uruguayan president Eduardo Víctor Haedo to build a bridge linking that town with Punta del Este. There has been two bridges built at the same crossing of the Maldonado River which each failed due to natural disasters; the bridge was designed by builder Leonel Viera, who had no previous experience in architecture or civil engineering. Viera pioneered the construction sequence now typical for concrete segment bridges of this type. After placement of the principal cables, precast concrete tiles were placed to form the initial structure; the cables were prestressed by loading sandbags upon the tiles, followed by final concretization of the gaps between tiles.

Removal of the sandbags compressively stressed the concrete structure, enhancing its stiffness and durability under load. The overall structure of the bridge would have a main span of 90m with two shorter 30m spans linking the main span to the shore; the ingenious design and construction of the bridge propelled Viera to national fame. In 1998, a contract was awarded to engineer Alberto Ponce Delgado to twin the bridge 20 meters upstream of the original span. A study commissioned in 1999 found that the original span was in need of repairs, which were completed in 2005. List of bridges in Uruguay
