Roy O. Disney

Roy Oliver Disney was an American businessman and co-founder of The Walt Disney Company. He was the older brother of Walt Disney. Roy was born to Irish-Canadian Elias Charles Disney and English-German-American Flora Call Disney in Chicago, Illinois; the family moved to Marceline, Missouri and to Kansas City in 1911. On July 1, 1911, Elias purchased a newspaper delivery route for The Kansas City Star, it extended from 27th Street to the 31st Street, from Prospect Avenue to Indiana Avenue. Roy and his brother, Walt worked as newspaper delivery-boys; the family delivered the morning newspaper, The Kansas City Times, to 700 customers, The Kansas City Star to more than 600. The number of customers served increased with time. Roy graduated from the Manual Training High School of Kansas City in 1912, he worked on a farm in the summer. He was employed as a bank clerk along with brother Raymond Arnold Disney at the First National Bank of Kansas City. Roy served in the United States Navy from 1917 to 1919. Roy was therefore discharged from military duty.

He worked as a banker while recuperating in hospital. In 1923, brother Walt joined Roy in Hollywood and the two planned the start of Disney Brothers Studio; the brothers ordered kit houses from Los Angeles-based Pacific Ready Cut Homes, in 1928, built their homes adjacently on Lyric Avenue in the Los Feliz neighborhood. While Walt led the creative side, Roy finances. Together Roy and Walt founded Disney Studios as brothers, but Walt bought out most of Roy's share in 1929 so, unlike Max and Dave Fleischer of rival Fleischer Studios, Roy was not a co-producer. However, Roy was an equal partner in all facets of the production company. Roy became the company's first CEO in 1929, although the official title was not given to him until 1966, he shared the role of chairman of the board with Walt from 1945. In 1960, Walt dropped the chairman title so he could focus more on the creative aspects of the company. After Walt's death in 1966, Roy postponed his retirement to oversee construction of what was known as Disney World.

He renamed it Walt Disney World as a tribute to his brother. Roy became the president of Walt Disney Productions on December 15, 1966, until 1968. Roy was married to Edna Francis from April 1925 until his death, their son, Roy Edward Disney, was born on January 10, 1930. Throughout his life, Roy rejected the fame that came with being Walt's brother. Roy's nephew Charles Elias Disney chose to name his son Charles Roy Disney in Roy's honor. After the opening of Walt Disney World in October 1971, Roy retired, he died, aged 78, on December 1971 from an intracranial hemorrhage. He is interred in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles, although his brother's ashes were interred five years earlier at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park. One of the Walt Disney World Railroad locomotives was named after Roy. On June 6, 2002, his son Roy E. Disney rededicated this locomotive in his father's honor; as of 2016, this locomotive turned a hundred years old. One of the Hong Kong Disneyland Railroad locomotives is named the Roy O. Disney.

The Roy O. Disney Concert Hall, the primary performance space for the Herb Alpert School of Music at the California Institute of the Arts, is named after him. A statue of Roy seated on a park bench beside Minnie Mouse is located in the Town Square section of Main Street, U. S. A. at the Magic Kingdom theme park in Florida. A duplicate is located outside the Team Disney building at Disney's corporate headquarters in Burbank, California. There is a third statue at the Tokyo Disneyland theme park; the Roy O. Disney Suite is located on the top floor of the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel. In 2014, Roy O. Disney was portrayed in the feature film Walt Before Mickey by Jon Heder.

2012 CARIFTA Games

The 2012 CARIFTA Games were held in the Bermuda National Stadium in Hamilton, Bermuda between April 6—9, 2012, the fourth time in which the event was held in Bermuda. The other years being 1975, 1980, 2004. A detailed analysis of the results and an appreciation of the games has been given elsewhere. A total of 9 new games records were set; the Austin Sealy Trophy for the most outstanding athlete of the games was awarded to Anthonique Strachan of the Bahamas. Complete results can be found on World-Track, on the World Junior Athletics History website, on the original games websites. †: Open event for both junior and youth athletes. *: Initially, Jevaughn Minzie of Jamaica came in second in 10.33s. However, following a protest of the Bahamas and Anguilla, he was disqualified for a false start. †: Open event for both junior and youth athletes. **: Miguel van Assen from Suriname finished second in triple jump reaching 14.57m. The unofficial count is in accordance with the medal count published elsewhere.

* Host nation Detailed result lists can be found on World-Track, on the World Junior Athletics History website, on the original games websites. The games saw the first appearance of athletes representing Bonaire after dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles. Athletes from Suriname were treated as guests. An unofficial count yields the number of about 419 athletes, including 10 guests from about 24 countries + 1 guest country: ***: Guest athletes. There was an ongoing dispute between the Surinamese officials Robby Rijssel and Delano Landvreugd, both gentlemen claiming to lead the Surinamese Athletiek Bond and to represent Suriname at the IAAF; as a result of this, two different delegations independently tried to register groups of athletes for the games. Alain Jean-Pierre from Haïti, board member of both the North American, Central American and Caribbean Athletic Association and the Central American and Caribbean Athletic Confederation, explained that both groups would have to be suspended from the games following the rules.

There was a joint decision by the NACAC, the CACAC, the local organizing committee in favour of the young athletes: all of them from both delegations were allowed to compete at the games, but they were treated only as guest athletes and appeared in the result lists as "unattached", rather than from Suriname. As a consequence, the athletes could not participate in the parade of the opening ceremony, they were not considered to be eligible for winning medals; the victim of the argument between the Surinamese officials was 15-year-old triple jumper Miguel van Assen who came in second in his category, but was not entitled to receive the silver medal.

Dicoria canescens

Dicoria canescens is a North American flowering plant in the daisy family known by several common names including desert twinbugs and bugseed. This is a desert plant of the southwestern United States and northwestern Mexico, found in Sonora, Baja California, southern California, Arizona, southwestern Colorado, northwestern New Mexico. Dicoria canescens forms thickets of many individuals in the desert sand; the distinctive lower leaves are long, pointed toothed, covered in a coat of thin white or gray hairs. The upper leaves are more rounded. One plant can produce several whitish flower heads containing disc florets but no ray florets. Sometimes the heads form associated pairs, a characteristic, the origin of the common name "twinbugs".

UCAM Murcia CF

Universidad Católica de Murcia Club de Fútbol known as UCAM Murcia or UCAM, is a Spanish football club based in Murcia. Founded in 1999 it plays in Segunda División B – Group 4, holding home games at Estadio de La Condomina, with a capacity of 6,500 spectators. Universidad Católica San Antonio de Murcia Club de Fútbol was founded in 1999 and had a team which played in Tercera División from 2000 to 2005. In parallel was founded in 2004 the Club de Fútbol Los Garres, making its first appearance in Tercera División in 2008–09 as Murcia Deportivo Club de Fútbol. In 2009 a businessman from Beniaján, acquired the club and moved it to his local town. At the end of the 2011–12 season, after Orihuela suffered relegation from Segunda División B due to irregularities, UCAM Murcia took its place. After suffering relegation, the club bounced back to the third level and achieved a respectable second place in his group during the 2014–15 campaign. In the 2015–16 season, UCAM Murcia finished the regular season as champions of the Group 4, six points ahead of neighbours Real Murcia.

The club achieved the promotion to Segunda División in the play-offs after beating Real Madrid Castilla 4–3 on aggregate. The first season of UCAM in the second flight would be short-lived, as they ended in the 19th position, subsequently relegated to the third tier, after being defeated in a do-or-die game by Gimnàstic de Tarragona in the last matchday. In the 2018-19 season the club finished 5th with 66 points in the Segunda División B, Group 4.

Chamfered dodecahedron

The chamfered dodecahedron is a convex polyhedron with 80 vertices, 120 edges, 42 faces: 30 hexagons and 12 pentagons. It is constructed as a chamfer of a regular dodecahedron; the pentagons are reduced in size and new hexagonal faces are added in place of all the original edges. Its dual is the pentakis icosidodecahedron, it is called a truncated rhombic triacontahedron, constructed as a truncation of the rhombic triacontahedron. It can more be called an order-5 truncated rhombic triacontahedron because only the order-5 vertices are truncated; these 12 order-5 vertices can be truncated such. The original 30 rhombic faces become non-regular hexagons, the truncated vertices become regular pentagons; the hexagon faces can be equilateral but not regular with D2 symmetry. The angles at the two vertices with vertex configuration 6.6.6 are arccos = 116.565°, at the remaining four vertices with 5.6.6, they are 121.717° each. It is the Goldberg polyhedron GV, containing hexagonal faces, it represents the exterior envelope of a cell-centered orthogonal projection of the 120-cell, one of six.

This is the shape of the fullerene C80. It is one of only four fullerenes found by Deza, Deza & Grishukhin to have a skeleton that can be isometrically embeddable into an L1 space; this polyhedron looks similar to the uniform truncated icosahedron which has 12 pentagons, but only 20 hexagons. The chamfered dodecahedron creates more polyhedra by basic Conway polyhedron notation; the zip chamfered dodecahedron makes a chamfered truncated icosahedron, Goldberg. In geometry, the chamfered truncated icosahedron is a convex polyhedron with 240 vertices, 360 edges, 122 faces, 110 hexagons and 12 pentagons, it is constructed by a chamfer operation to the truncated icosahedron, adding new hexagons in place of original edges. It can be constructed as a zip operation from the chamfered dodecahedron. In other words, raising pentagonal and hexagonal pyramids on a chamfered dodecahedron will yield the geodesic polyhedron. Taking the dual of that yields the Goldberg polyhedron, the chamfered truncated icosahedron, is Fullerene C240.

Its dual, the hexapentakis chamfered dodecahedron has 240 triangle faces, 360 edges, 122 vertices. Hexapentakis chamfered Michael. "A class of multi-symmetric polyhedra". Tohoku Mathematical Journal.

Mark 5

Mark 5 is the fifth chapter of the Gospel of Mark in the New Testament of the Christian Bible. It relates the story of three miracles of Jesus; the original text was written in Koine Greek. This chapter is divided into 43 verses; some early manuscripts containing the text of this chapter are: Codex Vaticanus Codex Sinaiticus Codex Bezae Codex Alexandrinus Codex Ephraemi Rescriptus Jesus and his disciples travel to the country of the Gerasenes across the Sea of Galilee by boat, a region, in modern Jordan. A possessed man comes to meet them. Mark relates that the man had lived in nearby tombs, had fought off all attempts to chain him up: the Greek text has a complex string of negatives: οὐδὲ ἁλύσει οὐκέτι οὐδεὶς, oude halysei ouketi oudeis, no one, no longer, not with chains, he now roamed the hills screaming. The man begs Jesus not to harm him. Jesus asks him what his name is and he replies "My name is Legion... for we are many". Legion may be a reference to the Roman army, they see some nearby pigs and the demons ask if they can be put in the pigs, to which Jesus consents.

The pigs rush into the lake and drown. The people tending the pigs run off to town telling everyone what has happened, some townspeople come to see for themselves; when they arrive the man is sitting dressed and sane. They are disturbed and ask Jesus to leave the area and he complies; the man asks Jesus to let him follow him, but Jesus tells him to go home to his family and tell them what God has done for him. The man travels over the Decapolis telling people the story; this story occurs in Matthew 8:28-34, where there are two possessed men, Luke 8:26-39. On the other side of the lake Jesus is met by a man named Jairus, a Synagogue Ruler, who begs Jesus to heal his sick, twelve-year-old daughter. Jesus takes only Peter and John; this story does not occur in the Gospel of John. On the way there, a woman who suffers from chronic "bleeding" menorrhagia or bleeding from fibroids, she sneaks up to Jesus and touches his garment, according to Matt 9:20-22 and Luke 8:43-48 the "fringe of his cloak", by which she is healed.

He turns to see who and she fearfully confesses. He says "Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering." Men tell Jairus that his daughter is dead. Jesus says "Don't be afraid, they arrive at the house and everyone is crying loudly. Jesus assures everyone she is not dead, just asleep, goes inside and says to her Talitha kum, telling her to get up, she does. Unlike the demon possessed man, he tells them not to tell people of these events; this account is in Matthew 9:18-26 and Luke 8:40-56. Luke keeps the stories of the possessed man and the two women together, but Matthew inserts the story of the paralyzed man, the calling of Matthew, the parable of the wineskins found in Mark 2 between these two stories.
