Sulzer (manufacturer)

Sulzer Ltd. is a Swiss industrial engineering and manufacturing firm, founded by Salomon Sulzer-Bernet in 1775 and established as Sulzer Brothers Ltd. in 1834 in Winterthur, Switzerland. Today it is a publicly traded company with international subsidiaries; the company's shares are listed on the Swiss Stock Exchange. Sulzer's core strengths are flow control and applicators; the company specializes in pumping, separation and application technology. Sulzer Brothers helped develop shuttleless weaving, their core business was loom manufacture. Rudolf Diesel worked for Sulzer in 1879, in 1893 Sulzer bought certain rights to diesel engines. Sulzer built their first diesel engine in 1898; the company is organized into four divisions: Pumps Equipment: Pump technology and solutions Rotating Equipment Services: Service and repair solutions for rotating equipment such as turbines, compressors and generators. Chemtech: Components and services for separation columns and static mixing Applicator Systems: Systems for liquid applications The Sulzer Ltd shares are registered at the SIX Swiss Exchange.

As of April 11, 2018, Renova Group held a total of 48.83% of Sulzer's share capital. The company "Gebrüder Sulzer, Foundry in Winterthur" was founded in 1834 by Johann Jacob Sulzer, his sons, Johann Jakob and Solomon produced cast iron, built fire extinguishers and apparatus for the textile industry. In 1836 the workforce grew to around forty journeymen and apprentices. In 1839 a foundry was added, a mechanical workshop was set up and the first steam engine was built in Winterthur. In 1859, the first "partnership agreement" between the Sulzer brothers was signed. New products were introduced, first steam engines also ships, new organization, production methods. Around 1860 Sulzer opened his first foreign sales office in Turin, in 1867 the company participated in the world exhibition in Paris; the workforce had grown to more than 1,000 workers. From 1880, steam engines, in particular, contributed to the growth to around 2,000 employees. In 1881 a branch was founded in Ludwigshafen am Rhein. In 1898, the first Sulzer diesel engine was developed in cooperation with Rudolf Diesel.

Around 1900 the company had over 3,000 employees and sales offices in Milan, Cairo, London and Bucharest, from 1914 in the Japanese Kobe. As a family business, the company had grown over the years in the form of a general partnership, in June 1914 it was converted into two stock corporations with registered offices in Winterthur and Ludwigshafen am Rhein, both of which were renamed Gebrüder Sulzer Aktiengesellschaft. In 1917, both companies were bundled in a holding structure under the name Sulzer-Unternehmungen AG and subsequently the foreign sales offices were transferred to independent companies. During the 1930s, production fell by two thirds as a result of the global economic crisis, personnel was massively reduced. Out of political and personal considerations, Sulzer decided to sell its subsidiaries in Germany by the beginning of the war. Sulzer was blacklisted by the Allies during World War II due to an increase in trade with Axis countries. Sulzer refused to sign an agreement to limit the future sale of marine diesel engines to the Axis countries, was blacklisted by the Allies as a result.

From 1945, a growth phase began with a flourishing economy and strong expansion of foreign activities. In the 1950s, increasing production was carried out by guest workers from southern Europe. New divisions for energy, plant engineering and textile machinery were created, accompanied by better working conditions, expansion of social benefits, women's work for "lighter factory work" and housing subsidies in surrounding communities. During the second heyday after the Second World War, the Sulzer Tower was built in the early 1960s - the company's new headquarters, a landmark of Winterthur and the tallest building in Switzerland at the time. In 1961, Swiss Locomotive and Machine Works in Winterthur was acquired, the large diesel engine became Sulzer's flagship product worldwide. In 1966, Sulzer acquired a 53 percent stake in Escher Wyss & Cie. in Zurich, reaching an all-time high of over 30,000 employees. In 1969, Escher Wyss AG was taken over in full. In the 1970s, the oil crisis announced a new orientation towards the technology group and the development of materials technologies.

Sulzer reacted to the global decline in capital goods in the 1970s after losses in the second half of the 1980s. In 1982, the weaving machine business was expanded. In 1984, Sulzer underwent massive restructuring. Medical technology was expanded by the purchase of the American Intermedics Group for one billion Swiss francs; the Winterthur machine factory was closed in 1990 and the founding site in Winterthur was vacated. For the first time, Sulzer employed more people abroad than in Switzerland. On May 14, 1993, Gebrüder Sulzer, Aktiengesellschaft was renamed Sulzer Ltd. In 1996, a technology centre was built in the Oberwinterthur Industrial Park. In 2000, Sulzer acquired the Finnish company Ahlstrom Pumps. In the middle of the year, the steam locomotive and machine factory DLM became independent, the remains of the former SLM became Winpro AG in 2001 through a management buyout; the time since 2003 is called a new beginning. Since the Group has been smaller but more profitable and has recorded strong growth.

Larry McVoy

Larry McVoy is the CEO of BitMover, the company that makes BitKeeper, a version control system, used from February 2002 to early 2005 to manage the source code of the Linux kernel. He earned BS and MS degrees in computer science in 1985 and 1987 from the University of Wisconsin–Madison and has been employed by Sun Microsystems and Silicon Graphics, his work included performance enhancements to the various Unix operating systems developed by his employers. While McVoy worked at Sun, he worked on a peer-to-peer SCM system named TeamWare that would form the basis of his BitKeeper product. McVoy started working with the Linux kernel around its 0.9.7 version and developed the LMbench kernel benchmark. LMbench was maintained until 2009 by Carl Staelin; the BitKeeper source control system was developed and integrated into the Linux development process in 2002, but after McVoy decided to charge for the use of BitKeeper, the Linux development community prompted the development of the git tool that began serving as the source control system for the Linux kernel in 2005.

While working at Sun in the early 1990s, McVoy and a number of other high-profile Unix community members urged the company to open-source their flagship Unix product, SunOS, to compete with Microsoft's new Windows NT operating system. The proposal would have created a copyleft version of SunOS at a time before Linux had reached its 1.0 version. McVoy, L.. Extent-like Performance from a UNIX File System.

M├ędoc AOC

Médoc is an AOC for wine in the Bordeaux wine region of southwestern France, on the Left Bank of the Gironde estuary that covers the northern section of the viticultural strip along the Médoc peninsula. The zone is sometimes called Bas-Médoc. With few exceptions there is produced only red wine, no white wine has the right to be called Médoc; the term Médoc is used in a geographical sense to refer to the whole Left Bank region, as defined by the original Institut National des Appellations d'Origine decree of November 14, 1936, the appellation may be applied to all wine produced in the prescribed zone in the peninsula, but this is rare practice by estates within Médoc's sub-appellations as it carries lesser perceived prestige. It covers the northern third of the Médoc peninsula, defined by a border that runs from Saint-Yzans and Saint-Germain-d'Esteuil in the south, to Soulac-sur-Mer in the north, although viticultural activity ends near Vensac. In all sixteen wine-producing communes are exclusive to Médoc, Bégadan, Saint-Christoly, Saint-Yzans and Saint-Germain-d'Esteuil have enjoyed a reputation level to communes of the northern Haut-Médoc.

Predominantly an area of cooperatives today, none of the estates were included in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855, although several have been included in the classification Cru Bourgeois. The area covers 5,700 hectares of declared vineyards, constituting 34.5% of the Médoc total, annually producing on average 300,000 hectolitres of wine. The soils are Garonne gravel, Pyrenees gravel and clayey limestone with extreme variation in character. There are frequent areas of heavy, clay-rich, moisture-retentive soils better suited for cultivation of the Merlot grape than Cabernet Sauvignon, vineyards are less densely packed than further south, intermingled with other forms of agriculture. Of the grape varieties permitted by INAO in Médoc, 50% of the viticultural area is planted with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, to a lesser extent Petit Verdot and Malbec. Allowed within the AOC regulations are the varieties Cabernet Franc and Carménère; the INAO specifications demand the following production norms: a minimum of sugar, 170 g per litre of must, maximum base yield of 50 hecolitres per hectare, a minimum alcohol by volume of 10%.

The regulations exclude viticultural activity in the communes Carcans, Brach, Lacanau, Le Temple, Le Porge, on "land of recent alluvium and sand lying on impermeable subsoils". Of the 584 viticultural properties of Haut-Médoc, 239 are independent wineries and 345 are in winemaking cooperatives. Four out of five cooperatives belong to the group Unimédoc which ensures aging and marketing. General Footnotes

Maple Colors

Maple Colors is a Japanese erotic visual novel and adventure game developed by Apricot and published by CrossNet, released on July 25, 2003 for Windows. The game was ported to the PlayStation 2 by HuneX and published by Kadokawa Shoten on March 31, 2005; the game was made a sequel released in 2008. Unlike the formula of most visual novels, which are noted for their minimal interaction, Maple Colors is different in that it combines elements of an adventure game with that of interactive fiction. Though reasonably limited, players control chibi versions of characters, able to travel around isometric maps, perform tasks, collect items and participate in mini-games. In a more recognizable fashion, players watch and listen to sequences of story and select choosable actions or responses when they are presented; as choices are intricately linked to alternating routes of plot, the direction of the story is changed, leading to erotic scenes between characters and one of various endings. In order for the player to watch all the possible endings in this regard, he or she will have to replay through the game several times, all the while making different selections.

Yoshijirou Saku is a young Japanese transfer student of the fictional Kouka Academy, an institution renowned for its theatre. A rebel by virtue of his delinquency and schoolmate Mirai Aoi are wrongfully held responsible for a fight when they come to the aggressive aid of a defenseless student being bullied. Yukihito Aizen, the respected though contemptible head of the drama club, with eyes set on Mirai, proposes a commutation requiring the offenders to enlist their entire class in a play or else face expulsion. Yoshijirou Saku Yoshijirou Saku is the unlikely protagonist of the series. A recent second-year transfer student, his life takes an unexpected turn when he is blamed for fighting and threatened with expulsion, along with classmate Mirai Aoi. Given the chance to redress his actions, Yoshijirou is assigned to recruit his entire class, a notorious group of disobedient misfits, to perform in a play lest having to leave school permanently with them. Mirai Aoi Loud and headstrong, Mirai Aoi is a second-year student and the most iconic character of the series.

Known among her class by the nickname "Captain", Mirai is a temperamental, fastidious leader, determined to combat the ridicule and undermining she and her group receive from the rest of the school. An accomplice by association, Mirai is required to assist Yoshijirou in appropriating their class for the play. Momiji Aio Momiji Aio is a second-year student, recognizable by her long pink hair and flamboyant wardrobe. A short, friendly girl, Momiji is meek and intimidated by nature, she is good friends with Mirai. Sora Suzuhara Distant and reserved, Sora Suzuhara is a second-year student, on the swim team. With a preference for solitude and disinterest in others, Sora is antisocial, nihilistic and deadpan. Through her acquaintance with Yoshijirou however, Sora becomes emotional and appreciative. Amu Uzuki Amu Uzuki is an adolescent entertainer and celebrity known and recognized across Japan for her acting and looks, she offers to participate in it. In spite of the fame and fortune she commands, her classist family, constant traveling, few friends and nonexistent love life take a toll on her.

Motoko Sakimori Direct and quiet, Motoko Sakimori is a second-year student who doubles as the local Shinto shrine miko. She is recognized for donning her robes in place of a school uniform, tough-love attitude, nage-waza martial arts and purple hair. In a fashion similar to Sora, Motoko opens up around Yoshijirou, showing a less seen, tender side of her. Youko Momoi Youko Momoi is a second-year student, on the girls' softball team as an ace pitcher. A friendly though clumsy girl, Youko is intimidated, buckles under pressure and struggles with theatre. Of all the characters that appear in the game, Youko is the only one bespectacled female.
