Richard M. Daley

Richard Michael Daley is an American politician who served as the 54th Mayor of Chicago, Illinois from 1989 to 2011. Daley was elected mayor in 1989 and was reelected five times until declining to run for a seventh term. At 22 years, he was the longest-serving Chicago mayor, surpassing the tenure of his father, Richard J. Daley; as Mayor, Daley took over the Chicago Public Schools, developed tourism, oversaw the construction of Millennium Park, increased environmental efforts and the rapid development of the city's central business district downtown and adjacent near North, near South and near West sides. He expanded employee benefits to same-sex partners of city workers, advocated for gun control. Daley received criticism when family, personal friends, political allies disproportionately benefited from city contracting, he took office in a city with regular annual budget surpluses and left the city with massive structural deficits. His budgets ran up the largest deficits in Chicago history. A national leader in privatization, he temporarily reduced budgetary shortfalls by leasing and selling public assets to private corporations, but this practice removed future sources of revenue, contributing to the city's near insolvency at the end of his tenure.

Police brutality was a recurring issue during his mayorship. Richard M. Daley is the fourth of seven children and eldest son of Richard J. and Eleanor Daley, the late Mayor and First Lady of Chicago. Daley was raised in Bridgeport, an Irish-American neighborhood located on Chicago's South Side. Daley is a brother of William M. Daley, former White House Chief of Staff and former United States Secretary of Commerce under President Bill Clinton. Daley was married to Margaret "Maggie" Corbett until her death on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2011 after a decade-long battle with metastatic breast cancer, which had spread to her bones and liver. Maggie Daley Park in the Chicago Loop commemorates her, her nonprofit After School Matters continues to serve Chicago's young people, they have four children: Nora, Patrick and Kevin, all born at Mercy Hospital and Medical Center in Chicago. Their second son, died at age two of complications from spina bifida in 1981, he was raised Roman Catholic. Daley graduated from De La Salle Institute high school in Chicago and obtained his bachelor's degree from DePaul University in 1964, having transferred from Providence College in Providence, Rhode Island after two years.

In 1962, at age 19, home on Christmas break, Daley was ticketed for running a stop sign at Huron and Rush, the Chicago Sun-Times headline was "Mayor's Son Gets Ticket, Uses No Clout," with a subhead reading "Quiet Boy."Sources conflict on Daley's military record. The only book-length biography of Daley makes no mention of military service. A 1995 profile in the Chicago Sun-Times stated that Daley served in the United States Marine Corps Reserve from 1961 to 1967, while a 1996 profile in People Magazine cited 1960 to 1964. A civilian website for Marines and their families found no military record for Daley. Daley earned a Juris Doctor degree from DePaul University, he passed the Illinois Bar Examination on his third try. Daley reflected, "I flunked the bar exam twice. I had to keep studying harder and harder. I passed it the third time." Daley never tried a case. Daley was elected to his first party office as a delegate to the 1969 Illinois Constitutional Convention. According to journalist Rick Perlstein, in June 1972, Daley led a mob on behalf of his father's Democratic Party regulars against pro-McGovern reformers meeting in a church in Illinois' Fifth Congressional District.

The action was unsuccessful and the reformers' slate replaced the Daley slate at the Democratic National Convention in Miami Beach, Florida. After his father died in 1976, Daley succeeded his father as the 11th Ward Democratic committeeman, a party post, until succeeded in the post by his brother John P. Daley in 1980. With John P. Daley holding the post from 1980 to the present, a Daley has held the post of 11th Ward Committeeman for 60 years. After Edward Nihill stepped down, with the support of the Democratic political organization, was elected to the Illinois Senate, serving from 1972 to 1980. State Senator Daley spoke to reporters and didn't hold a news conference for six years. Daley chaired the Senate Judiciary Committee. Daley was named one of Illinois' ten worst state legislators by Chicago Magazine "for arrogance, for sharklike qualities, for living off his father's name, for pulling puppet strings attached to some of the worst members of the Senate." He was considered "too shrewd to be one of the worst, but he controls so many of the worst senators that he belongs on the list to represent all of them."

After the Spring 1975 state legislative session, Chicago Democrat Dawn Clark Netsch, who served with Daley as Illinois Constitutional Convention delegates and as State Senators, blamed "dirty little Richie" for frustrating her good government legislative agenda in the state legislature. Daley challenged incumbent Republican Bernard Carey for Cook County State's Attorney. Democratic Mayor Jane Byrne endorsed Alderman Edward M. Burke in the Democratic primary, after Daley prevailed in the primary, endorsed Carey in the general election. Daley prevailed and served from 1981 to 1989. In February 1982, Andrew Wilson was arrested for the murder of two Chicago police officers. Wilson was taken to Ar

Cornelius Fontem Esua

Cornelius Fontem Esua is a Cameroonian Prelate of the Roman Catholic Church. He serves as Archbishop of the Bamenda Metropolitan See since 2006. Born in Mbetta, Esua was ordained to the priesthood on December 29, 1971. On September 10, 1982, Esua was appointed bishop of Kumbo. Esua received his episcopal consecration on the following December 8 from archbishop Donato Squicciarini, the apostolic nuncio to Cameroon, with the recently appointed archbishop of Bamenda, Paul Mbiybe Verdzekov, the bishop of Buéa, Pius Suh Awa, serving as co-consecrators. Esua was named coadjutor archbishop of Bamenda by Pope John Paul II on December 7, 2004. Esua expressed his full intentions as Chief Pastor to advocate doctrinal views on issues like the Nkuv Affair. Quite a good number of the prominent members of the World Apostolate of Fatima became ringleaders of the unorthodox Nkuv devotion, since the latter was in some manner associated with the Fatima apparitions, it was on account of this association that the 13th of every month, most the 13th of May, was taken as the official day of prayer for the Nkuvites.

Since 7 October 1997, when Esua Bishop of Kumbo issued a pastoral Letter declaring the unorthodoxy of the Nkuv Affair and outlining the criteria for determining the authenticity of Marian apparitions, some of its adherents have withdrawn and regained full communion, some adhere both to Nkuv and to the church, some have publicly excluded themselves from the church and pledged allegiance to Nkuv. Esua and the other bishops of the Bamenda Ecclesiastical Province, issued a letter to all Christians concerning the sacrament of marriage and HIV/AIDS. All the bishops requested that before the publication of marriage banns, couples must present to the parish priest a valid and authentic medical certificate showing that they have done HIV/AIDS screening.

No Code Tour

The No Code Tour was a concert tour by the American rock band Pearl Jam to support its fourth album, No Code. Pearl Jam promoted No Code with tours in North America and Europe in the fall of 1996; the short tour of North America focused on the East Coast of the United States. As with Vitalogy little touring was done in the United States to promote No Code because of the band's refusal to play in Ticketmaster's venue areas; the band chose to use alternate ticketing companies for the shows. The band toured the United States playing shows in locations such as Downing Stadium on Randall's Island and The Meadows in Hartford, Connecticut. Chicago Bulls player Dennis Rodman attended the band's September 26, 1996 show in Augusta, Maine at the Civic Center, during the climax of "Alive" came onstage to offer Vedder some red wine. To the excitement of the crowd, Vedder responded by hopping on Rodman's back and riding him piggyback style across the stage while singing. Rodman received a Walkman carved with Vedder's initials containing the concert recording and cited this as one of his most thrilling experiences.

A European tour followed in the fall of 1996. The band's November 3, 1996 show in Berlin, Germany at Deutschlandhalle was broadcast on many radio stations worldwide; this show is called "Checkpoint Charlie" by fans. During the North American tour fans complained about the difficulty in obtaining tickets and the use of non-Ticketmaster venues, which were judged to be out-of-the-way and impersonal. Guitarist Stone Gossard stated that there was "a lot of stress associated with trying to tour at that time" and that "it was growing more and more difficult to be excited about being part of the band." He added, "Ticketmaster, as monopolistic as it may be, is efficient so we weren't playing the venues we wanted to play." This is their last full-date tour with Jack Irons, who departed from the band during their 1998's Yield Tour. Information taken from various sources.

7-cube

In geometry, a 7-cube is a seven-dimensional hypercube with 128 vertices, 448 edges, 672 square faces, 560 cubic cells, 280 tesseract 4-faces, 84 penteract 5-faces, 14 hexeract 6-faces. It can be named by its Schläfli symbol, it can be called a portmanteau of tesseract and hepta for seven in Greek. It can be called a regular tetradeca-7-tope or tetradecaexon, being a 7 dimensional polytope constructed from 14 regular facets, it is a part of an infinite family of called hypercubes. The dual of a 7-cube is called a 7-orthoplex, is a part of the infinite family of cross-polytopes. Applying an alternation operation, deleting alternating vertices of the hepteract, creates another uniform polytope, called a demihepteract, which has 14 demihexeractic and 64 6-simplex 6-faces; this configuration matrix represents the 7-cube. The rows and columns correspond to vertices, faces, cells, 4-faces, 5-faces and 6-faces; the diagonal numbers say. The nondiagonal numbers say how many of the column's element occur at the row's element.

Cartesian coordinates for the vertices of a hepteract centered at the origin and edge length 2 are while the interior of the same consists of all points with -1 < xi < 1. H. S. M.
