Samobor is a city in Zagreb County, Croatia. It is part of the Zagreb metropolitan area. Samobor is located west of Zagreb, between the eastern slopes of the Samobor hills, the eastern part of Žumberak Mountains, in the Sava River valley, it is part of the historical region of Croatia proper. The city government, police, health service, a post office are part of the Samobor infrastructure. Samobor has existed as a free royal town since 1242, according to a document of endowment by King Béla IV. Since the Treaty of Karlowitz in 1699, Szamobor was part of the Habsburg Monarchy, soon after in the Kingdom of Croatia-Slavonia, created when the Kingdom of Slavonia and the Kingdom of Croatia were merged in 1868. In the late 19th and early 20th century, Samobor was a district capital in the Zagreb County of the Kingdom of Croatia-Slavonia. One of the chief industries in Samobor is crystal cutting, acclaimed in Europe and all over the world. Many well-known people were lived in Samobor; such notable personalities are: Tvrtko Kale, Croatian-Israeli footballer Ferdo Livadić, a prominent member of the nationalist Illyrian movement in the 19th century, piano composer and writer of the most famous Croatian patriotic song of the 19th century, Još Horvatska ni propala Antun Gustav Matoš, poet and writer, lived in Samobor for four years Antonio Šančić, tennis player In the 2011 Croatian census, the total population of the administrative territory of Samobor was 37,633, distributed in the following settlements: Samobor is one of the earliest tourist resorts in the region, with the first tourist facilities dating back to 1810, catering to anglers and hikers.

The town's beautiful surroundings and vicinity to the capital have supported this tourist tradition to the present day. In 1846, Samobor was paid a visit by the composer Franz Liszt, who at that time was visiting Zagreb during one of his numerous concert tours. Liszt came to Samobor to see his friend Ferdo Livadić, in his lodgings at the Livadić mansion, today the town museum. At the beginning of the 20th century, the Livadić mansion came under the ownership of a Jewish family named Daničić, they were forced to leave as a result of the Nazi invasion in 1941. Shortly after this, the mansion was confiscated by the newly formed Independent State of Croatia and never returned to the Daničić family.

Gijswijt's sequence

In mathematics, Gijswijt's sequence is a self-describing sequence where each term counts the maximum number of repeated blocks of numbers in the sequence preceding that term. The sequence begins with: 1, 1, 2, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 1, 1, 2, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 2, 1... The sequence is similar in definition to the Kolakoski sequence, but instead of counting the longest run of single terms, the sequence counts the longest run of blocks of terms of any length. Gijswijt's sequence is known for its remarkably slow rate of growth. For example, the first 4 appears at the 220th term, the first 5 appears near the 10 10 23 rd term; the process to generate terms in the sequence can be defined by looking at the sequence as a series of letters in the alphabet of natural numbers: a = 1, a = k, where k is the largest natural number such that the word a a a... a can be written in the form x y k for some words x and y, with y having non-zero length. The sequence is base-agnostic; that is, if a run of 10 repeated blocks is found, the next term in the sequence would be a single number 10, not a 1 followed by a 0.

The sequence begins with 1 by definition. The 1 in the second term represents the length 1 of the block of 1s, found before it in the first term; the 2 in the third term represents the length 2 of the block of 1s that are in the first and second term. At this point, the sequence decreases for the first time: The 1 in the fourth term represents the length 1 of the block of 2s in the 3rd term, as well as the length 1 of the block "1, 2" spanning the second and third term. There is no block of any repeated sequence preceding the fourth term, longer than length 1; the block of two 1s in the first and second term cannot be considered for the 4th term because they are separated by a different number in the 3rd term. The 1 in the fifth term represents the length 1 of the "repeating" blocks "1" and "2, 1" and "1, 2, 1" and "1, 1, 2, 1" that precede the fifth term. None of these blocks are repeated more than once, so the fifth term is 1; the 2 in the sixth term represents the length of the repeated block of 1s leading up to the sixth term, namely the ones in the 4th and 5th terms.

The 2 in the seventh term represents the 2 repetitions of the block "1, 1, 2" spanning terms 1-3 and 4-6. This "3-number word" occurs twice leading up to the seventh term - so the value of the seventh term is 2; the 2 in the eighth term represents the length of the repeated block of 2s leading up to the eighth term, namely the twos in the sixth and seventh terms. The 3 in the 9th term represents the thrice-repeated block of single 2s leading up to the 9th term, namely the twos in the sixth and eighth terms. Only limited research has focused on Gijswijt's sequence; as such little has been proven about the sequence and many open questions remain unsolved. Given that 5 does not appear until around 10 10 23, brute force search techniques would never find the first occurrence of a term greater than 4, it has, been proven that the sequence contains every natural number. The exact rate of growth is not known, but is conjectured to grow super-logarithmically, with the first occurrence of any natural n positioned near 2 2 3 4 5...

N − 1. Though it is known that each natural number occurs at a finite position within the sequence, it has been conjectured that the sequence may have a finite mean. To define this formally on an infinite sequence, where re-ordering of the terms may matter, the conjecture is that: lim n → ∞ 1 n ∑ i = 1 n a < ∞ Likewise, the density of any given natural number within the sequence is not known. The sequence can be broken into discrete "block" and "glue" sequences, which can be used to recursively build up the sequence. For example, at the base level, we can define B 1 = 1 and S 1 = 2 as the first block and glue sequences, respectively. Together, we can see how they form the beginning of the sequence: B 1 B 1 S 1 = 1, 1, 2 The next step is to recursively build up the sequence. Define

Florence La Badie

Florence La Badie was an American actress in the early days of the silent film era. Though little known today, she was a major star between 1911 and 1917, her career was at its height when she died at age 29 from injuries sustained in an automobile accident. Florence La Badie was one of the most important and popular actresses of the early motion picture era, she appeared in 30 films for Biograph starting in 1909 and 166 silent films from 1911 through 1917 for the Thanhouser studio in New Rochelle, New York. A daredevil at heart, she was known as "Fearless Flo" for taking risks and performed many of her own stunts, she was a frequent subject for articles and letters in fan and trade magazines, over a period of years, she was the most publicized and beloved of all Thanhouser players. Florence La Badie was born Florence Russ on April 27, 1888, the second child of Horace Blancard and Marie Lynch Russ in New York City. After the death of her father in 1890 and the inability of her mother to provide care, Florence, at age three, was adopted by Joseph E. and Amanda J.

La Badie of Montreal, Canada. Florence's adoptive father, Joseph E. La Badie, was a prominent attorney in Montreal, his wife, the former Amanda Victor, is said to have been born in Europe Paris, her adoptive uncle, Oddiehon LaBadie, maintained an estate in nearby St. Lambert. Florence was educated at the Convent of Notre Dame in Montreal. Tragically, on October 13, 1917 at age 29, Florence succumbed to injuries suffered in an automobile accident on August 28, 1917, making her the first major "movie star" to die at the zenith of her popularity; the New York Times published an article the following day, Thursday October 18, 1917, reporting the throng of friends and fans attending her funeral. She was buried in an unmarked grave in the Green-Wood Cemetery in New York. While having been raised in Montreal, in a sworn deposition on October 8, 1917, a New York woman named Marie C. Russ claimed to be Florence's biological mother and referred to a Russ family burial plot in Brooklyn's Green-Wood Cemetery, with lot number 17187 being reserved for Florence Russ, aka Florence La Badie.

This legal deposition was dated five days before Florence's death. Having completed her studies, she was offered work as a fashion model in New York City. Once there, in early 1908 she obtained a small part in a stage play. Following this, she signed to tour with one of the road companies and for the next two years appeared on stage in various places in the eastern part of the United States. During this period she met a fellow Canadian, the young actress Mary Pickford, who suggested she "try pictures". Given an impromptu bit part, Florence was invited back to Biograph's studios to participate in another film that year, she would go on to make several films under the renowned D. W. Griffith, with her first credited film being in the 1909 film The Politician's Love Story, starring Mack Sennett and Kathlyn Williams. In 1911, her career took a leap when she was hired by Edwin Thanhouser of the Thanhouser Film Corporation in New Rochelle, New York. With her sophistication and beauty, Florence La Badie soon became Thanhouser's most prominent actress, appearing in dozens of films over the next two years.

Her most remembered films of that period were The Tempest, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, a film adaptation of the Robert Louis Stevenson story, the first film of Shakespeare's Cymbeline, her most well-known work was in the 1914 - The Million Dollar Mystery. Athletic and daring, in these films she performed all her own stunts. In 1915, she was featured in the magazine Reel Life, which described her as "the Beautiful and talented Florence La Badie, of the Thanhouser Studios, conceded one of the foremost of American screen players". Over a course of six years La Badie's career had taken her to top-billing as a film actress; when World War I broke out in Europe in 1914, Canada joined the war, as a result, several of Florence La Badie's young male friends and relatives back home in Montreal were shipped overseas. She had many movie fans in Canada and according to one New York newspaper, in 1915 a young soldier fighting in the trenches at the Front in Northern France wrote to her, sending dozens of photographs that graphically depicted the horrors of the war.

Affected, La Badie became a vigorous advocate for peace, traveling the United States with a stereopticon slide show of the soldier's photographs, warning about the terrible dangers of going to war. For a time, she was engaged to a Cadillac salesman named Val Hush, they broke up, she became involved with Daniel Carson Goodman, a writer who worked on the scenario for Thanhouser's serial Zudora. In August 1917, La Badie was at the height of her motion picture success, she had appeared in 185 films since 1909, 32 fewer than Mary Pickford's 217 films during the same period. Her film The Woman in White had just been released in July 1917, her latest two films, The Man Without a Country, a film adaptation of Edward Everett Hale's The Man Without a Country, War and the Woman, would soon be released, both on September 9, 1917. Although the Thanhouser Corporation had been struggling since the 1914 automobile accident death of Charles J. Hite, her career was thriving and had been their saving grace. Less than a month earlier, she had announced that she was leaving Thanhouser, she had several other film corporations willing to pick her up on contract immediately.

On August 28, 1917, while driving near Ossining, New York in the company of her fiance, Daniel Carson Goodman, the brakes on La Badie's car failed and th


"Heidenröslein" or "Heideröslein" is a poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, published in 1799. It was written in 1771 during Goethe's stay in Strasbourg when he was in love with Friederike Brion, to whom the poem is addressed; the episode is the inspiration for Franz Lehár's 1928 operetta Friederike, which includes a setting of "Heidenröslein" by Lehár. "Heidenröslein" tells of a young man's rejected love. There is a companion poem by Goethe, "Das Veilchen", it has been set to music by a number of composers, most notably in 1815 by Franz Schubert as his D. 257. Schubert's setting is based on Pamina's and Papageno's duet "Könnte jeder brave Mann" from the end of act 1 of Mozart's The Magic Flute; the 1829 setting by Heinrich Werner became a popular folk song.
