David Terrell (fighter)

David Michael Terrell is a retired American professional mixed martial artist who competed in the UFC and Pancrase. Terrell is from Sacramento and was introduced to combat sports through wrestling, was an accomplished wrestler in high school, he began training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu when he was 19 years old, being interested in the martial art after watching several UFC fights on television. In his UFC debut, he scored a stunning knockout victory over top Middleweight Matt Lindland; the victory thrust Terrell into title contention, as his next fight was against Evan Tanner for the vacant UFC Middleweight Championship title in February 2005. Despite locking Tanner in a tight guillotine choke, Terrell lost the hold and lost the match by technical knockout in the first round. Plagued by recurring injuries, Terrell's next fight did not come until UFC 59 in April 2006, where Terrell submitted his opponent, Scott Smith, with a rear naked choke in the first round. Controversy surrounds the victory as the referee told the fighters to break before Terrell took Smith down.

Smith was appealing to the referee when Terrell was able to get Smith's back and apply a rear naked choke. Questionable officiating by referee Marco Lopez led Smith to file a complaint to the California State Athletic Commission. At UFC 62 he withdrew the bout due to a sinus infection; the fight with Okami was rescheduled to UFC 66, but Terrell again pulled out of the fight citing an elbow injury suffered during training. Despite an early report which claimed that Terrell was planning to move to Light Heavyweight, Terrell was scheduled to fight Ed Herman in a Middleweight contest at UFC 78 in November 2007. However, he was dropped from the card due to injury. Canadian Joe Doerksen took his place against Herman. On February 21, 2008 Terrell was released by the UFC. In early 2010 Terrell expressed his desire to continue fighting. List of male mixed martial artists Professional MMA record for David Terrell from Sherdog David Terrell at UFC

List of rulers of Safavid Georgia

This is the list of individuals who ruled Safavid Georgia. The territory of the province was principally made up of the two subordinate eastern Georgian kingdoms of Kartli and Kakheti and parts of the Principality of Samtskhe; the city of Tiflis was its administrative center, the base of Safavid power in the province, the seat of the rulers of Kartli. It housed an important Safavid mint. Safavid rule was exercised through the approval or appointment of Georgian royals of the Bagrationi dynasty, at times converts to Shia Islam, as valis or khans; the eastern Georgian kingdoms had been subjected in the early 16th century, their rulers did not convert. Tiflis was garrisoned by an Iranian force as early as Ismail I's reign, but relations between the Georgians and Safavids at the time bore features of traditional vassalage. Davud Khan was the first Safavid-appointed ruler, whose placement on the throne of Kartli in 1562 marked the start of nearly two and a half centuries of Iranian political dominance over eastern Georgia.

1933 Lyttelton by-election

The Lyttelton by-election of 1933 was a by-election held during the 24th New Zealand Parliament in the Christchurch electorate of Lyttelton. It is notable for being won by Elizabeth McCombs of the New Zealand Labour Party, who became the first woman to be elected to the New Zealand Parliament; this by-election was therefore seen as a milestone in Women's suffrage in New Zealand. This by-election came about because of the death of James McCombs, Elizabeth McCombs's husband, he had held the electorate of Lyttelton since he won it in the Lyttelton by-election of 1913. He was therefore one of the earliest members of the Labour party to hold an electorate, he died of a heart attack on 2 August 1933. Despite the electorate of Lyttelton being held by Labour or its predecessor the Social Democrats since 1913, the electorate was seen as marginal as it had been won by just 32 votes at the 1931 general election. However, the Labour Party were confident of retaining the electorate as they pledged reforms that would help those affected by the Great Depression.

The Labour party chose to select Elizabeth McCombs, elected to the Christchurch City Council in 1921 and had stood for Labour in Kaiapoi and Christchurch North in the 1928 and the 1931 respectively. McCombs was unanimously selected as the Labour party candidate. Nine other women had stood for parliament in New Zealand since they had been allowed to in 1919, while women gained the right to vote in 1893, it was not uncommon for family members to take over parliamentary electorates upon the death of a family member. For example, Vincent Ward had taken over from his father Joseph in the Invercargill electorate in 1930; the United and Reform parties were at this stage in a coalition. The Christchurch executives unanimously suggested that Frederick W. Freeman be accepted as their candidate, he had been the Reform party candidate in the 1931 general election, losing by just 32 votes against James McCombs. Minister of Finance and Acting Prime Minister Gordon Coates as leader of Reform, the Minister of Lands, Alfred Ransom, on behalf of United, accepted the recommendation on behalf of the coalition and endorsed Freeman's selection.

Freeman was educated locally. After a term of legal work, he trained as a surveyor and became a civil engineer, he was a commissioner of the Waimakariri River Trust and an elected member of the Heathcote County Council. He had held leading positions with the Canterbury Automobile Association, the South Island Motor Union, had been a director for an insurance company. At the time of the by-election, he was an executive member of the Canterbury Progress League, a councillor for the Canterbury Chamber of Commerce, a member of the Arthur's Pass National Park Board. Edward L. Hills was described as the unknown factor prior to the by-election. A young man of considerable vitality, he was described as the best speaker of the three candidates, he was involved in trade unions in Christchurch and had been a member of the Labour Party, but he resigned on 1 August 1933 as the Woolston branch of Labour did not support his nomination for the selection ballot for the next general election. He thus contested the by-election as an Independent.

McCombs's campaign was dominated by the fact. She chose to address this issue head on by using "Vote the first woman to the New Zealand Parliament" as her campaign slogan. Although it appears that the major newspapers had few worries about electing a woman, many people did; the leader of the Labour Party, Harry Holland, attended some of the campaign meetings in support of McCombs. McCombs was received favourably at various meetings. Freeman received considerable support with his campaign from the coalition government. William Bodkin and Walter Broadfoot, United Party Members of Parliament representing the Otago Central and Waitomo electorates were both present and campaigning on Hills' behalf, they were not received favourably, though. One of Broadfoot's meetings in Lyttelton for women was attended by only five electors. A meeting in the Labour stronghold of Woolston was much better frequented, with 200 attendees busy interjecting him during his speech; that meeting was concluded with a formal thanks to the speaker, three cheers for McCombs.

Bodkin had a more orderly meeting in Cashmere. Freeman himself was well received. At a meeting in St Martins, he addressed an audience of 50. A motion was passed to record "thanks and confidence", an amendment to delete the word'confidence' from the motion was defeated. Hills was reported as saying: "I believe the same as Hitler believes, that woman's place is in the home", further that "I believe the difficulties of the country are too great for women to grapple with." Many letter writers to the press were unimpressed at the prospect of having a woman in parliament. Hills was criticised at election meetings, he was asked whether he received money from somebody for standing in the election, insinuating that the conservative candidate might have an interest in the vote of the working class being split. The election campaign was seen as important because of the Great Depression that New Zealand was experiencing and was viewed to be a referendum on the government's response; the results of the Lyttelton electorate at the 1931 general election were: Results of the by-election held on 13 September 1933 were: Elizabeth McCombs won 16 of the 23 polling places.

"I am proud to be the first woman to be elected to our Parliament" McCombs said upon her victory. "It will be my endeavour to live up to the tradition the women of New Zealand have established for taking their full share of the bur
