Q Public License

The Q Public License is a non-copyleft license, created by Trolltech for its free edition of the Qt. It was used until Qt 3.0, as Trolltech toolkit version 4.0 was released under GPL version 2. It fails the Debian Free Software Guidelines, used by several Linux distributions, though it qualifies for the Free Software Foundation's Free Software Definition. KDE, a desktop environment for Linux, is based on Qt. Only the free open source edition of Qt was covered by the QPL. Meanwhile, the Free Software Foundation and authors of the GPL objected to the QPL as it was a non-copyleft license incompatible with the GPL; as KDE grew in popularity, the free software community urged Trolltech to license Qt under the GPL to ensure that it would remain free software forever and could be used and developed by commercial third parties. Under pressure, Trolltech dual-licensed the free edition of Qt 2.2 for use under the terms of the GPL or the QPL. Other projects that have adopted the Q Public License, sometimes with a change in the choice of jurisdiction clause, include: LibreSource is a versatile collaborative platform provided by artenum and dedicated to collaborative software development Jpgraph is a graph generation tool written in PHP that dynamically produces charts and graphs as image files for presentation on websites.

Hercules, a software implementation of the System/370, ESA/390, z/Architecture mainframe computer architectures. Tgif switched from a free-of-charge non-commercial license to the Q Public License. Previous projects using the Q Public License include: The OCaml compiler and related tools from Projet Cristal at INRIA. Since April 2016 OCaml is released under the GNU Lesser General Public License version 2.1 with linking exception. CGAL for versions 3.x. The CGAL library is released under GNU General Public License/LGPL since CGAL version 4.0. The Debian project rejects software covered by QPL because of: A choice of venue clause Forced distribution to a third party Forced blanket license to the original developer All legal disputes about the license are settled in Oslo, but it has never been contested. Open source license The Q Public License, version 1.0

Cosmic Tones for Mental Therapy

Cosmic Tones for Mental Therapy is an album by the American Jazz musician Sun Ra and his Myth Science Arkestra. Recorded in 1963, but not released until 1967 on Sun Ra's own Saturn label, the record has become one of the most discussed of Ra's New York recordings; the record was reissued on compact disc by Evidence in 2000.'Cosmic Tones functions as a kind of blueprint for the sort of large-scale jazz weirdness that would inform much of Sun-Ra's subsequent works, featuring the woozy reeds of And Otherness and the afro-jazz experiments of Thither And Yon. On Adventure Equation a space echo treatment on the recording, reprised for the sax flurries on Voice Of Space making the whole experience more disorientating than it would be.' Released in a sleeve with a Sun Ra doodle, the better known cover, designed by Richard Pedreguera, was in place by 1969. Pedreguera designed the sleeve for The Nubians of Plutonia at around the same time; the album has been discussed within the context of anticipating psychedelia or pointing towards the funk of George Clinton.

When reissued on CD, Art Forms of Dimensions Tomorrow was added to the disc.

Hunter remembers some neighbourhood kids running in during the recording and shouting, "These guys don't know how to play!"

Monodonta vermiculata

Monodonta vermiculata, common name the toothed topshell, is a species of sea snail, a marine gastropod mollusk in the family Trochidae, the top snails. The height of the shell attains its diameter 26 mm; the imperforate, thick shell is subglobose. The short spire is conoid; the shell contains 4 to 5 whorls. The penultimate and last whorl are quite convex, the last descending, more or less concave just below the linear suture; the young shells are obsoletely spirally lirate, their sculpture disappearing with age. The coloration consists of numerous narrow red or orange zones alternating with bands of light green articulated with black; the oblique aperture is round-ovate. The outer lip is finely plicate within; the basal lip is plicate. The short columella terminates in an acute tooth; the middle of the columellar area contains a longitudinal semilunar groove irregularly curved. The basal notch or canal is oblique, wider than deep, not denticulate in the middle. There is great variation in color in this species.

In some specimens red predominates, in others green. And the general effect is an olive shade. There is a subsutural series of light and dark dashes; the numerous narrow red spiral lines are characteristic. This species occurs in the Red Sea, off Socotra and Muscat Donald K. M.

Either Way (album)

Either Way is an album by Zoot Sims and Al Cohn recorded in Philadelphia in 1961 for the Fred Miles Presents label. The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow stated "It is fun to hear Sims and Cohn work with a vocalist, jamming behind him and launching into their solos; the five instrumentals, which include the riffing "P-Town," the only ballad of the date and the heated blues "Morning Fun," are excellent too, making this a set well worth picking up". "P-Town" – 5:12 "I Like It Like That" – 2:26 "Sweet Lorraine" – 3:21 "Autumn Leaves" – 4:43 "The Thing" – 4:55 "I'm Tellin' Ya" – 4:47 "Nagasaki" – 2:29 "Morning Fun" – 6:15 Zoot Sims, Al Cohn – tenor saxophone "Old Grand Happy" – piano Bill Crow – double bass Gus Johnsondrums Cecil "Kid Haffey" Collier – vocals

HD Ferries

HD Ferries was a fast catamaran Channel Islands ferry service between Jersey and Brittany. HD Ferries had daily departures from the port of Saint Helier to St Peter Port and to St Malo. HD Ferries was established in January 2007 following the cessation of Emeraude Lines in November 2005. Earlier, Condor Ferries and Emeraude Lines were the only two services operating in the region; the States of Jersey, States of Guernsey and Regional Council of Brittany required an additional ferry service to meet the demand for passenger and freight travel between the Channel Islands and France. The Jersey authorities had been attempting to encourage other companies to start a rival service to Condor, to maintain a competitive environment. In June 2007 HD Ferries announced that it planned to incorporate Alderney and Cherbourg into the route. Following a berthing trial in Alderney harbourmaster Steve Shaw gave HD Ferries the go ahead subject to certain conditions; the Alderney service never started. HD Ferries made its first successful sailing to Cherbourg on 6 August 2007, marking the start of its new twice weekly service between Jersey/Guernsey and Cherbourg.

The HD Ferries service grew its presence within the Channel Islands with an increasing amount of local residents, holiday makers and freight drivers using the service on a daily basis. During its short history, HD Ferries were involved in two collision incidents with Condor Ferries whilst the competitors' ships were alongside. Due to lack of customers, the Cherbourg link was soon dropped in favour of a direct link with Guernsey to St Malo; the direct St Malo to Guernsey link was dropped mid-August 2008 after about two months operating. HD Ferries proposed plans to operate a service alongside Condor Ferries on the northern routes to the UK mainland but this was another failure and never happened; the company would have had to secure at least one additional vessel to enable this. HD Ferries ceased all services from 7 September 2008, after giving customers who had booked tickets 4 days notice; the company claimed that they would return in 2009. HD Ferries said on 12 February 2009 that "there are no sailings scheduled for 2009" - although they advised customers to check for updates on the company's website.

On 16 February 2009, HD Ferries announced that they would not be returning, leaving a parting blast at the Jersey authorities claiming a lack of support. HD1 is an Incat K series, a high speed catamaran with top speeds of 45 knots, she has 70 cars and 10 freight vehicles. HD1 was renamed Moon Flower. In 2013 she was renamed HSC Orange and Harmony Flower, she operates in the Yellow Sea. HD Ferries Official site
