Slipknot is the debut studio album by the American nu metal band Slipknot. It was released on June 29, 1999 by Roadrunner Records, following a demo containing a few of the songs, released in 1998, it was reissued in December 1999 with a slightly-altered track listing and mastering as the result of a lawsuit. It was the first release by the band to be produced by Ross Robinson, who sought to refine Slipknot's sound rather than alter the group's musical direction; the album spans several genres, but is noted for its extensive percussion and overall heavy sound. It was well received by fans and critics alike and was responsible for bringing Slipknot a large increase in popularity; the album peaked at number 51 on the Billboard 200, has gone on to become certified double platinum in the United States, making it the band's best-selling album. In 2011, it was voted the best debut album of the last 25 years by readers of Metal Hammer magazine. In 1997, following the band's demo release, Mate. Feed. Kill.
Repeat. The members of Slipknot continued to write new material and work in SR Audio, a local studio, with new vocalist Corey Taylor; the band were never able to go further than pre-production. Songs written and recorded in this period include "Slipknot", "Gently", "Do Nothing", "Tattered and Torn", "Heartache and a Pair of Scissors", "Me Inside", "Coleslaw", "Carve", "Windows", "May 17th". In 1998, Slipknot was receiving growing attention from record labels, including Epic and Hollywood Records. On September 29, 1998, Slipknot left Des Moines and relocated at Indigo Ranch Studios in Malibu, anxious to record an album after a long wait to be signed, they released this demo to prospective producers. The band wanted him to work with them on their debut album, after meeting with the band, Robinson signed them to his own label, I Am, but helped sign them to Roadrunner Records; the album's recording process was "very aggressive and chaotic", as producer Robinson strove to capture the intensity that the band created when performing live.
Within three days all the drums were recorded, which contributed to the raw, live sound on the album that the band considered integral to its musical direction. By November 11, 1998, the recording of the album seemed complete and the band returned to Des Moines. During the Christmas period, guitarist Josh Brainard, who recorded on all the tracks to that point, left the band; the reasons for his departure were unclear. His replacement was Jim Root, with whom the band returned to the studio in February 1999. Slipknot finished recording during this period, with two extra songs: a re-recording of "Me Inside", a new track called "Purity"; the mixing stages turned out to be challenging, as drummer Joey Jordison and producer Robinson mastered the entire album with analog equipment, instead of the more common method of using digital formats. "Wait and Bleed" and "Spit It Out", which appeared on the demo prior to the album, were released on the album, also. "Snap" was featured on the soundtrack for the film Freddy vs. Jason and "Eyeless" appeared on an episode of The Sopranos.
Slipknot's musical style is contested. However, this album is regarded while showing influences of other genres. Joey Jordison stated, "The roots are death metal, speed metal, I could go on and on about all those bands." The album shows influences from alternative metal and rap metal. Critics have noted an industrial influence; the band's use of percussion and samples gave the album a dense, layered sound. Alternative Press hailed the "inventive sampling, creative guitar work and an absolute percussive overload", while Q described the album as "a terrifying racket". Slipknot includes melody, notably in the single "Wait and Bleed"."742617000027", the intro, contains guitar scratches and abstract sound samples by sampler Craig Jones. Some of the dialogue was taken from a Charles Manson documentary; the dialogue is, "The whole thing, I think it's sick." In an interview shortly after the album was released, Jordison claimed the voice is Corey Taylor's, sped up. "", recalled Jordison, was written "at the first rehearsal I had with Slipknot, on September 15, 1995.
We were called The Pale Ones and the song was called "Slipknot". It sounded different as Corey wasn't in the picture at that point." "Paul and I wrote the song together many years before we started Slipknot," said Shawn Crahan. "We had the riff and the drum beat. But it wasn't" until everyone else was in the band and we brought it to Ross." "All of us were in the same room. It was hilarious. Everyone had their headphones tied to their head so we could all go crazy while we played. Ross was throwing potted plants at Joey, it was the most insane thing I'd seen." Rick Anderson of AllMusic noted that on "Scissors", Taylor "sounds like he's about to burst into tears." Taylor's aggressive, expletive-filled lyrics were noted by AllMusic: " lyrics that are discernible are not gen
Scottish Independence Convention
The Scottish Independence Convention is an cross-party, non partisan group with the aim of bringing together pro-independence parties and organisations to promote the concept and ideals of an independent Scotland. The current conveners is Elaine C. Smith, with vice convener Dave Thompson; the SIC was created in 2005 as a forum for those of all political persuasions and none who support independence, to be a national catalyst for Scottish independence. With the election of the SNP in 2007, the SIC was on hiatus, with more informal meetings being held between pro-independence forces instead of being through SIC channels; the Convention agreed a new constitution in February 2017 to establish its purpose and aspirations. To carry out any other agreed actions it is felt will strengthen the case for independence, improve the chances of securing a second referendum and enhance our ability to win that referendum; as an unaligned group, set up long before Yes Scotland, the convention was the main contact for European groups who took interest in Scotland's independence movement.
It was announced on the 4th anniversary of Scotland's independence referendum of 2014 that the SIC is to establish a new national campaign for independence in November 2018, utilising its position as a body bringing together Scotland's pro-independence parties and think tanks for a refreshed vision of independence through grassroots campaigning. This renewed push for Independence will focus on tackling fake news and fact corrections with a rebuttal and fact checker service.

The San Isidro Club is an Argentine sports club based in the Boulogne Sur Mer district of Greater Buenos Aires. The club has gained recognition due to its rugby union team, being one of the most successful clubs of Argentina with 25 Torneo de la URBA championships won. SIC has won 4 Nacional de Clubes tournaments; the senior team competes in Top 12, the highest division of the Unión de Rugby de Buenos Aires league system while the field hockey team plays at tournaments organised by the Buenos Aires Hockey Association.

After the match, CASI held the traditional meeting with the rival team in the Salón Cullen of the club, where no women attended. During the dinner, one of the guests spilled a cup of wine over his pants, which he took off and continued eating; the rest of the players that were sat at the table showed their solidarity with him and took their pants and continued with the dinner as if nothing had happened.
This was seen by a member of the club. As a result, eleven players were suspended by CASI for periods from one to two years. Since the suspension was effective, the team lost the most games played, finishing 6th at the end of the season; the banned players organised some friendly matches under the name "Abelleyra XV" wearing new jerseys. At the end of 1935 Julio Urien was elected president of CASI for a new period, therefore the banned players left the club to found their own institution, an initiative they kept in mind since the meetings with club's authorities to find a solution had been unsuccessful. On 14 December 1935 the San Isidro Club was established in the "Quinta Pueyrredón" of San Isidro; the colors of the San Isidro Club were approved in the meeting, being chosen the same colors than CASI: white, light blue (worn by the defunct football team during the amateur era and black. The strong rivalry between CASI and SIC has remained to date.
