Members of the Western Australian Legislative Council, 1906–1908

This is a list of members of the Western Australian Legislative Council from 22 May 1906 to 21 May 1908. The chamber had 30 seats made up of ten provinces each electing three members, on a system of rotation whereby one-third of the members would retire at each biennial election. 1 On 7 May 1906, North-East Province MLC James Connolly was appointed Colonial Secretary and Minister for Commerce and Labour in the new Ministry led by Newton Moore. He was therefore required to resign and contest a ministerial by-election, at which he was returned unopposed on 16 May 1906. 2 On 6 November 1906, North Province MLC Edward Wittenoom resigned. Richard Pennefather won the resulting by-election on 15 January 1907. 3 On 21 July 1907, East Province MLC Charles Dempster resigned. George Throssell, who had served as Premier in 1901, won the resulting by-election on 12 August 1907. Black, David.

U.S. Grant Hotel

The U. S. Grant Hotel is a historic hotel in California, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It has 270 guest rooms in addition to meeting rooms and a ballroom; the hotel was built by Ulysses S. Grant, Jr. son of president Ulysses S. Grant, who named the hotel after his father. Grant demolished it to construct the current hotel. Architect Harrison Albright designed the hotel. San Diego voters helped finance $700,000 for the $1.5 million needed to construct the hotel after Grant lacked the funds to do so. The hotel opened on October 15, 1910 and included two swimming pools as well as a ballroom on the top floor; the hotel's signature restaurant is the Grant Grill, which opened in 1952. It became a power-lunch spot for downtown businessmen and politicians, so much so that "ladies" were not permitted in the restaurant before 3 PM. In 1969 a group of prominent local women staged a sit-in which resulted in the restaurant abandoning its men-only policy; the hotel was refurbished in the 1980s, but fell upon hard times in the subsequent decade due to a financial slump.

The hotel changed hands several times during the 1990s. In 2003, the hotel was purchased by the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation, who closed the doors for 21 months to renovate the building, it reopened in October 2006. The hotel is operated by Marriott Resorts as a part of its Luxury Collection; the official name of the property is The U. S. Grant, a Luxury Collection Hotel, San Diego; the Grant Hotel was, for nearly 35 years, until 1974, the site of the annual reunion dinner of the "Great White Fleet Association," a group of sailors who sailed on the cruise of 16 white battleships from 1907-09. These dinners attracted a wide range of military guests from all over the world; the inaugural San Diego Comic-Con International, called "San Diego’s Golden State Comic-Con", was held at the U. S. Grant Hotel in 1970. Famous guests have included Albert Einstein, Charles Lindbergh, Woodrow Wilson and 12 additional United States Presidents; the hotel includes three presidential suites that have been tailored to Secret Service requirements for accommodating presidential visits.

Lakeside Murder Case

Lakeside Murder Case is a 2004 Japanese mystery film directed by Shinji Aoyama, starring Kōji Yakusho, Hiroko Yakushimaru and Etsushi Toyokawa. Four couples are staying at a lakeside cottage with their children, they want them to prepare intensely for a prestigious high school's entrance exam with the help of a private tutor. One night, one of the wives confesses to her husband that she has killed his mistress... Kōji Yakusho as Shunsuke Namiki Hiroko Yakushimaru as Minako Namiki Etsushi Toyokawa as Masaru Tsukumi Akira Emoto as Tomoharu Fujima Fukumi Kuroda as Kazue Fujima Shingo Tsurumi as Takashi Sekiya Kaoru Sugita as Yasuko Sekiya Yuko Mano as Eriko Takashina In an interview with Midnight Eye, the director Shinji Aoyama said, "I wanted to talk about whether parents understand their kids and vice-versa. That's the most basic thing the film is about." In an interview with The Japan Times, he stated that it was a story about ordinary people, saying "At first they don't understand anything -- they find out little by little.

There's no professional detective. Everyone is an amateur. It's an all-amateur mystery." Mark Shilling of The Japan Times gave the film 3.5 stars out of 5. He felt that the film was "less a commercial whodunit with a gorgeous corpse than a dark, multilayered psycho-drama, whose subjects include the ills of the Japanese educational system and the moral limits of parental love." However, he noted that it was "more mainstream" than Shinji Aoyama's other films. He concluded by saying, "the film does pose a timely question. In a winner-take-all society, how can one compete and stay human? The answer may be staring us in the face, albeit from the bottom of a lake." Russell Edwards of Variety said, " Yakusho delivers yet another credible performance. Other thesps are solid and tech credits are excellent."
