Showa Corporation

Showa Corporation is a manufacturer of high-performance automotive and outboard suspension systems based in Gyoda, Saitama in Japan. The company was founded in 1938 as Showa Aircraft Precision Works. In Japan's drive to develop its military capability in preparation for World War II, Showa supplied aircraft suspension and landing systems to various aircraft manufacturers. Banned from developing or manufacturing aircraft systems after the war, Showa entered the car components industry, using its aircraft knowledge to develop specialist suspension products for motorcycles made by the new company Honda; the relationship between Showa and Honda developed over the years, with Honda Racing Corporation accounting for more than 50% of Showa's business. In 1950 Showa acquired Rikuo Motorcycle, which made licensed versions of Harley Davidson motorcycles in the 1930s and 1940s. Rikuo brand lasted until 1962. Showa has since become OEM supplier to Harley Davidson. Showa has overseas facilities in Brazil, China, Indonesia, Spain, Thailand, United Kingdom, United States and Vietnam.

Showa was an official IndyCar Series shock absorber supplier from 2007 to 2011. Showa remained IndyCar Series shock absorber supplier since 2012 but only for Honda-powered teams. Suspension Showa Aircraft Industry Official site

Wallace (lunar crater)

Wallace is the remains of a lunar impact crater, flooded by lava. It was named after British natural historian Alfred Russel Wallace, it lies to the northeast of the crater Eratosthenes. The crater rim forms a somewhat polygonal outline, is broken in the southeast; the floor is flat and devoid of significant features, but it is overlain by ray material from Copernicus to the southwest. The rim ascends to an altitude of 0.4 km above the lunar mare. By convention these features are identified on Lunar maps by placing the letter on the side of the crater midpoint, closest to Wallace; the following craters have been renamed by the IAU.

Jerzy Nos

Jerzy Nos of Topór was a mediaeval Polish-Lithuanian nobleman. A starost of Drohiczyn and Mielnik, with time he rose to the rank of Prince of Polesia and governor of Pskov, he held numerous posts in the administration of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. Little is known of his early life, though he was most a descendant of the Ruthenised Pinsk branch of the Gediminids, it is unclear if he is related to Jerzy Nos Narymuntowicz, son of Narimantas, who in 1398 acted as a diplomat for Vytautas and signed the Treaty of Salynas, as some sources consider them to be the same person. During the 1406-1408 war fought by Grand Duke Vytautas against his son-in-law Vasili I of Moscow and Švitrigaila, Nos fought for the earlier side. A major stand-off at Ugra River between the two armies ended without a battle in the Treaty of Ugra, by which Velikiy Novgorod was granted to Jogaila's brother Simeon Lingwen, the important city of Pskov to Jerzy Nos, who acted as Jogaila's envoy. Following the death of Grand Duke Vytautas, in 1432 Nos served as the commander-in-chief of Lithuanian forces loyal to Švitrigaila and took part in the successful siege of the city of Lutsk.

Schubert's song cycles

Franz Schubert's best known song cycles, like Die schöne Müllerin and Winterreise are based on separate poems with a common theme and narrative. Other song cycles are based on consecutive excerpts of the same literary work: Schubert's "Ave Maria" is part of such a song cycle based on excerpts of the same poem, in this case by Walter Scott; when the poems of a group of songs have a common link, are for this reason grouped under a single Deutsch number, but there is no common narrative, the collection is rather qualified as a song set than a song cycle. Some of Schubert's song cycles contain both Lieder for solo voice as part songs. There is, always a piano accompaniment. D 93, Song cycle Don Gayseros for voice and piano: 1. "Don Gayseros I" 2.

BSV 07 Schwenningen

BSV 07 Schwenningen is a German association football club that plays in Schwenningen, Baden-Württemberg. The 1974 merger of Schwenningen SC and VfR Schwenningen that formed BSV Schwenningen 07 brought together two separate threads of the club's history. Two of the town's early clubs, FC 07 Schwenningen and FC Viktoria 08 Schwenningen, set aside their rivalry in 1922 to form VfR Schwenningen; the club advanced to first class Gauliga Württemberg play for a single season in 1937 and finished in last place. BSV's other ancestor, Sportclub Schwenningen, was formed in 1925. In 1935 they advanced as far as the semi-final round of the first Tschammerspokal tournament, the predecessor to today's DFB-Pokal. After World War II organizations across Germany, including sports and football clubs, were dissolved by the occupying Allied authorities. In 1946 all of Schwenningen's former sports associations were re-constituted in a single club known as VfL Schwenningen that played in the Oberliga Südwest from 1946 to 1950.

This club's existence was short-lived and late in 1950 VfR Schwenningen was re-formed as a separate side that began play in the Amateurliga Württemberg. A re-formed SC Schwenningen side was slated to begin play in the Amateurliga Württemberg, but was demoted to the Landesliga Württemberg over the status of some of its players, they returned to the Amateurliga Württemberg in 1951. VfR played in the Amateurliga Württemberg for most of the 1950s, winning the German Amateur championship in 1952; the club joined the new Amateurliga Schwarzwald-Bodensee in 1960. They finished second to FC Hanau 93 in the promotion round for the 2. Bundesliga, but appeared to get another chance to advance when second division FC Hassfurt ran into license problems. However, the German Football Association ruled in Hassfurt's favour and Schwenningen would have to wait. In the late 1960s the side fell to Landesliga Württemberg play. SC Schenningen's history paralleled VfRs: they played in the Amateurliga Württemberg for most of the 1950s and joined the new Amateurliga Schwarzwald-Bodensee in 1960 to become the new circuit's first champion.

They remained a tier III side into the 1970s. In 1974, these two clubs formed BSV Schwenningen 07 and the new team carried on play in the third tier Amateurliga Schwarzwald-Bodensee for the 1974–75 season, they won the league title in 1976 and advanced through the promotion rounds to play in the 2nd Bundesliga Süd in 1976–77. The following year was one of mixed fortunes: a 20th-place finish in the 2nd Bundesliga had seen the club relegated carrying a heavy debt load; however the side made its furthest advance in German Cup play, going out in the third round. In the first round of the 1979 German Cup, Schwenningen suffered a 1–14 beating at the hands of Borussia Dortmund, the most goals Dortmund has scored in a match; the club stayed in the Verbandsliga Württemberg until the end of 1984 and slipped to the tier-five Landesliga Württemberg the next year. They played at that level for most of a decade before falling to the Bezirksliga for eight years. Schwenningen returned to the Landesliga Württemberg in 2003, 2009 and 2011, but were relegated back to the Bezirksliga each time.

The club made another return to the Landeslig after a Bezirksliga championship in 2014 but were relegated once more. It continued its yo-yo existence in 2015–16, winning another promotion from the Bezirksliga to the Landesliga; the club's honours: The recent season-by-season performance of the club: With the introduction of the Regionalligas in 1994 and the 3. Liga in 2008 as the new third tier, below the 2. Bundesliga, all leagues below dropped one tier. BSV 07 Schwenningen Das deutsche Fußball-Archiv historical German domestic league tables
