Rosanna Lisa Arquette is an American actress, film director, film producer. She was nominated for an Emmy Award for her performance in the 1982 TV film The Executioner's Song, won the BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for the 1985 film Desperately Seeking Susan, her other film roles include After Hours, The Big Blue, Pulp Fiction, Crash. She directed the 2002 documentary Searching for Debra Winger, starred from 2006 to 2007 in the ABC sitcom What About Brian? Arquette was born in New York City, the daughter of Brenda Olivia "Mardi", an actress, theater operator, acting teacher, therapist, Lewis Arquette, a film actor and producer, her paternal grandfather was comedian Cliff Arquette. Her mother was Jewish, from a family that emigrated from Russia, her father, whose family's surname was "Arcouet", was of part-French Canadian descent. Her father was a convert from Catholicism to Islam, her siblings, Patricia and David, all became actors as well. Arquette has appeared in both screen films.

In 1982, she earned an Emmy Award nomination for the TV film The Executioner's Song. However, she was unhappy with the film's nude scene, remarking in an interview that the idea of the general public seeing her naked made her feel uncomfortable and exploited, that most of the offers she'd received since demanded that she expose herself, her first starring role was in John Sayles's 1983 film, Baby It's You, a regarded but little seen film. She starred in Desperately Seeking Susan alongside pop singer Madonna, for which Arquette won a British Academy Film Awards for her "supporting" role, despite being the lead. Madonna was breaking out at the time and though many feel that while Arquette's performance was central to the movie's success, Madonna made the movie into a mainstream hit, she had negotiated a deal. "Into The Groove" became a huge hit for Madonna itself. In an interview at the time, Arquette said "The two questions I hate the most are'What was it like working with Madonna?' and'Are you the Rosanna in the song "Rosanna"?'"

Following the commercial and critical success of Lawrence Kasdan's Silverado in 1985, the failure of both After Hours and 8 Million Ways to Die, she quit Hollywood to work in Europe, acting in Luc Besson's The Big Blue. In 1989, director Martin Scorsese offered her a part in New York Stories. Arquette's other movies of note are Pulp Fiction and the David Cronenberg film Crash and the Australian film Wendy Cracked a Walnut. In 1990, she appeared on the cover and in a nude pictorial in Playboy's September issue, although she claimed it was without her prior knowledge or consent. In the 1990s, her career began to stall. Arquette alleges, that powerhouse film producer Harvey Weinstein sexually harassed her, threatened her because of her refusal to enter his hotel room, subsequently saw to it that she was paid less for Pulp Fiction no longer cast in A-list lead roles because of her rejection of his quid pro quo sexual harassment proposition; the Guardian wrote, "She has no evidence that Weinstein warned others against her."

When the industry scuttlebutt about Weinstein's predation broke into the news in October 2017, Arquette was one of the first actresses to speak about his misconduct, with Ronan Farrow for The New Yorker and The New York Times's Jodi Kantor. In recent years, Arquette has expanded into directing, including the documentaries Searching for Debra Winger and All We Are Saying. Arquette appeared in the short-running What About Brian as Nicole Varsi and in Showtime's The L Word as Cherie Jaffe, she guest-starred in Malcolm in the Middle as a healer named Anita who takes Malcolm's virginity.

In an August 8, 2019 interview with TheWrap, Arquette said the Federal Bureau of Investigation advised her to make her Twitter account private after online critics harassed her for tweeting that she had shame for being "white and privileged".

Ulster Senior League (men's hockey)

The Ulster Senior League is a league competition for the first teams of men's hockey clubs affiliated to the Ulster Hockey Union of Hockey Ireland. At a Special General Meeting of the Union held on 15 October 1897 in the Royal Avenue Hotel, the clubs present resolved to form the Ulster Senior League. Eight teams participated in the first season: Antrim, Cliftonville, King's Regiment, North Down, North Staffordshire Regiment and Ulster In 2019-20, 12 clubs will start the Ulster Senior League season. From its formation until 1953 entry to the Ulster Senior League could only be obtained by application to the Ulster Hockey Union; the applicant club would have to be successful in a vote amongst the Senior Clubs. The size of the Senior League varied between seven competing clubs in the 1900s to as many as eighteen in the late 1920s. With eighteen teams it was necessary to play the league in two pools with the winners of the pools playing a Test Match to decide that year's league champions. In 1953 the eight team Senior League amalgamated with the eight team Qualifying League.

There was no realignment of teams at this time, the only difference was the renaming of the two leagues as Senior League Section A and Senior League Section B. Teams did not change Sections during this period and no teams were promoted or relegated to or from the Senior League. At the end of each league season the winner of Section A played the winner of Section B in a Test Match to decide the winner of the Keightley Cup; the loser of the Test Match was awarded the Ireland's Saturday Night Cup. During this period the trophy was always won by the Section A winner. Prior to the start of the 1957-58 season, the Council of the Ulster Branch made a controversial decision. Portrush, who had finished bottom of Section A in 1956-57 were demoted to Section B. Parkview, the winners of Section B in 1956-57, were moved to Section A; this signalled the intention of the League to move to Relegation. A report was commissioned by the Council of the Ulster Branch to establish new league structures; the report and debate lead to the league reorganising to allow for promotion and relegation prior to the start of the 1958-59 season.

There were eight teams in each league section. A Qualifying League in two sections provided two lower rungs for the league, with a further Intermediate section below that; the formation of the sections again proved controversial, as some clubs were not placed in the section that their previous seasons standing would merit. In particular, it was reported that Saintfield had finished above four clubs in 1957-58 that were placed in Qualifying B. At the end of the 1968-69 season the Senior League expanded from eight to ten teams and was renamed as Senior League Section 1; the remaining six Qualifying League'A' were joined by the top four teams from Qualifying'B' to form a ten team league known as Senior League Section 2. All remaining club first teams were entered in the Intermediate League. In season 1975-76 Section 2 was increased to 12 teams. Membership of the two Senior League Sections at the start of the 1969-70 season was as follows In 2001 Section 1 was reduced to eight teams, was renamed as the Premier League.

Section 2 remained with twelve teams and was renamed as Senior 1. The Intermediate League was renamed with all remaining teams placed in this section; the top three teams in the Premier League at the end of the season qualify for the All-Ireland Club Championship. The top four teams departed for the new Irish Hockey League and the league reduced from three divisions to two; the League champions now qualify for the Provincial Play-offs where they compete for promotion to the IHL. Four teams dropped into junior hockey and the two divisions were amalgamated into a single Premier League of fourteen teams; the Intermediate League was revived. Winners of the Premier League are awarded the Keightley Cup. Winners of Senior 1 were awarded the Ireland's Saturday Night Cup. Winners of Senior 2 were awarded the Cliftonville Cup. Key: 1 - 2017-18 Cliftonville relegated to revived Intermediate League. Other teams joining Intermediate League were Armagh, Ballynahinch, Parkview, PSNI, Portrush and Saintfield. Key: 1 - 2016-17 Cookstown promoted to Irish Hockey League after winning the Promotion/Relegation Play-off.

2 - 2016-17 Annadale promoted to Irish Hockey League after winning the Provincial Play-offs. 3 - 2016-17 Campbellians dropped into junior hockey. 4 - 2016-17 Antrim, Bangor and Queen's University promoted alongside South Antrim. Armagh and Portrush dropped into junior hockey. 5 - 2015-16 Instonians promoted to Irish Hockey League after winning the Provincial Play-offs. Key: 1 - 2014-15 Banbridge along with Annadale and Lisnagarvey joined the Irish Hockey League for the 2015-16 season. 2 - 2014-15 Mossley, North Down, Portadown and South Antrim promoted. 3 - 2014-15 Armagh and Cliftonville promoted. 4 - 2012-13 Cliftonville were promoted. 5 - 2008-09 Raphoe were not relegated due to increase in number of teams in premier league to ten. 6 - 2008-09 North Down were promoted to enable increase of premier league to ten teams. Key: 1 - 2000-01 Bangor won Section 2 but lost a Promotion Playoff 2 - 1997-98 South Antrim were runners-up and gained promotion when Holywood'87 folded. 3 - 1996-97 Promotion and relegation suspended.

4 - 1978-79 Belfast YMCA won League after 3-1 victory in Test Match against Instonians. 5 - 1977-78 Promotion and relegation between Section 1 and 2 suspended because of Ireland's participation in the Hockey World Cup in Argentina

Jersey Red Ensign

The Jersey Red Ensign the Jersey Defaced Red Ensign, is the civil ensign used by ships registered in the Channel Island of Jersey. It was created in 2010 after approval from the States of Jersey; the flag consists of a British red ensign with the coat of arms of Jersey surmounted by a Plantagenet crown. Prior to 2010, Jersey had no unique civil ensign for maritime usage. Jersey-registered vessels instead used the plain British red ensign; this lack of a unique civil ensign for Jersey — and the fact that fellow Channel Island Guernsey had one — led Jersey's maritime authorities to request a unique Jersey red ensign be created, a proposal was produced after discussions with the Garter King of Arms and the British College of Arms. Because it included the coat of arms of Jersey and the Plantagenet crown on it, as a symbol of Jersey's link with the English Crown since King John, the States of Jersey were obliged to ask Queen Elizabeth II's approval for the proposed design; the Queen granted consent for the design in April 2010 and the States of Jersey opened a public consultation for the new ensign.

Following the consultation the States of Jersey unanimously agreed to introduce the Jersey red ensign in June 2010. The Economic Development Minister, Alan Maclean, stated that adoption of the new Jersey Red Ensign would be voluntary and Jersey registered vessels could continue to fly the British red ensign if they wished to. Owners of unregistered ships would be obliged to register them should they wish to use the new Jersey Red Ensign. Flag of Jersey
