Svalbard and Jan Mayen

Svalbard and Jan Mayen is a statistical designation defined by ISO 3166-1 for a collective grouping of two remote jurisdictions of Norway: Svalbard and Jan Mayen. While the two are combined for the purposes of the International Organization for Standardization category, they are not administratively related; this has further resulted in the country code top-level domain.sj being issued for Svalbard and Jan Mayen, ISO 3166-2:SJ. The United Nations Statistics Division uses this code, but has named it Svalbard and Jan Mayen Islands. Svalbard is an archipelago in the Arctic Ocean under the sovereignty of Norway, but is subject to the special status granted by the Svalbard Treaty. Jan Mayen is a remote island in the Arctic Ocean. Svalbard and Jan Mayen have in common that they are the only integrated parts of Norway not allocated to counties. While a separate ISO code for Svalbard was proposed by the United Nations, it was the Norwegian authorities who took initiative to include Jan Mayen in the code.

Its official language is Norwegian. Svalbard is an archipelago in the Arctic about midway between the North Pole; the group of islands range from 74° to 81° north latitude, from 10° to 35° east longitude. The area is 61,022 square kilometres and there were 2,572 residents in 2009. Spitsbergen is the largest island, followed by Edgeøya; the administrative center is Longyearbyen, other settlements, in addition to research outposts, are the Russian mining community of Barentsburg, the research community of Ny-Ålesund and the mining outpost of Sveagruva. The Svalbard Treaty of 1920 recognizes Norwegian sovereignty, the 1925 Svalbard Act made Svalbard a full part of the Kingdom of Norway; the archipelago is administrated by the Governor of Svalbard, subordinate to the Norwegian Ministry of Justice and the Police. Unlike the rest of Norway, Svalbard is a free economic zone and a demilitarized zone, is not part of the Schengen Area nor the European Economic Area. Jan Mayen is a volcanic island in the Arctic Ocean located at the border of the Norwegian Sea and the Greenland Sea.

The single island covers an area of 377 square kilometres and is dominated by the 2,277-metre tall Beerenberg volcano. The island's only population is a combined military and meteorological outpost that operates a LORAN-C transmitter at Olonkinbyen; the Norwegian Meteorological Institute annexed the island for Norway in 1922. On 27 February 1930, the island was made de jure a part of the Kingdom of Norway. Since 1994, the island has been administrated by the County Governor of Nordland, with some authority delegated to the station commander; the ISO designation is congruent with an equivalent United Nations Statistics Division category and users of these classification systems may in some cases report separately for "Svalbard and Jan Mayen Islands" instead of rolling up this information into the "Norway" category. Neither Svalbard nor Jan Mayen have their own flag or coat of arms, the flag of Norway is used for both of them, both alone and as a group. An attempt to change the ISO code to just "Svalbard" has failed because of opposition from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

However, for statistics use within population and trade, "Svalbard and Jan Mayen" means just "Svalbard". ISO 3166-2:SJ is the entry for Svalbard and Jan Mayen in ISO 3166-2, a system for assigning codes to subnational administrative divisions. However, further subdivision for Svalbard and Jan Mayen occurs under Norway's entry, ISO 3166-2:NO: NO-21 Svalbard NO-22 Jan MayenThe hierarchical administrative subdivision codes for Svalbard is SJ. SV and for Jan Mayen is SJ. JM. By virtue of the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code SJ, Svalbard and Jan Mayen were grouped together and allocated the Internet country code top-level domain.sj. Norid, who administrated the Norway's.no ccTLD, was given the responsibility for the.sj and Bouvet Island's.bv domain in 1997. Policy prohibits any registration with either of the domains, as institutions connected to Svalbard can use the.no domain. Norwegian authorities do not want to commercialize the domain resources, therefore.sj will not be sold to a third party. Stange, Rolf.

Mount Melibengoy

Mount Parker, locally known as Mélébingóy, is active stratovolcano on Mindanao island in the Philippines. It is located in the province of South Cotabato, 30 kilometres west of General Santos City and 44 kilometres south of Koronadal City; the volcano's English name is taken from an American, General Frank Parker, who spotted the mountain and claimed to have "discovered" it during a flight he piloted in 1934. Parker led an expedition up to the lake in the mountain's crater with other US colonial and Filipino government officials, including Vice-Governor-General Joseph Ralston Hayden and Provincial Governor Gutierrez, in the fall of 1934; the elevation is given as 1,784 metres as 1,824 metres by others. The volcano has a base diameter of 40 kilometres, it has a 2.9-kilometre wide caldera with steep walls that rise 200-500m above the lake, now called Lake Maughan. The lake, called Lake Hólón, was named after another American, with Parker when he crashed. Mélébingóy is considered one of the sacred places of the Tboli tribe.

It hosts a rare species, Parantica dannatti reyesi, a butterfly related to the monarch, discovered by the late Professor Josue de los Reyes of Notre Dame of Marbel University and published in the entomological journal of Senckerburg Research Institute in December 1994. Government officials have confirmed sightings of the Philippine tarsier, Tarsius syrichta which can be found in the barangays surrounding Lake Hólón. Mount Parker is believed to have erupted thrice over the past 3,800 years, the last one on January 4, 1641; the 1641 eruption caused the formation of the crater lake. On September 6, 1995, local officials reported what they believed was volcanic activity at Lake Maughan; the alleged activity caused landslides and floodings along Ga-o River which drains Lake Maughan and joins Allah River in the north. Due to this phenomenon, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology installed monitoring equipment which established that the so-called activity was man-made. Less than a year after the 1995 activity, a temporary dam was formed at about 250 m from the outlet of Lake Maughan, alarming the residents within the area due to fear of flashfloods.

The deposited debris dammed the flowing Ga-o River and caused the lake level to rise by about 6 meters. List of active volcanoes in the Philippines List of active volcanoes in the Philippines List of inactive volcanoes in the Philippines Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology

Byline

The byline on a newspaper or magazine article gives the name of the writer of the article. Bylines are placed between the headline and the text of the article, although some magazines place bylines at the bottom of the page to leave more room for graphical elements around the headline. Dictionary.com defines a byline as "a printed line of text accompanying a news story, article, or the like, giving the author's name". A typical newspaper byline might read: Gershon RabinowitzNew York Daily News Contributor A byline can include a brief article summary that introduces the author by name: Penning a concise description of a long piece has never been as easy as appears, as Staff Writer John Smith now explains: Magazine bylines and bylines on opinion pieces include biographical information on their subjects. A typical biographical byline on a piece of creative nonfiction might read John Smith is working on a book, My Time in Ibiza, based on this article, he is returning to the region this summer to gather material for a follow-up essay.

Bylines were rare before the late 19th century. Before the most similar practice was the occasional "signed" or "signature" article; the word byline itself first appeared in print in 1926, in a scene set in a newspaper office in The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway. One of the earliest consistent uses of the idea was for battlefield reporting during the American Civil War. In 1863, Union General Joseph Hooker required battlefield reporters to sign their articles so that he would know which journalist to blame for any errors or security violations; the practice became more popular at the end of the 19th century, as journalists became more powerful and popular figures. Bylines were used to create celebrities among some yellow journalists during this time. Proponents of signed articles believed that the signature made the journalist more careful and more honest. However, the increasing use of bylines was resisted by others, including the publisher–owner of The New York Times, Adolph Ochs, who believed that bylines interfered with the impersonal nature of news and decreased the sense of institutional responsibility for an article's content.

Bylines remained rare in that newspaper for several more decades. The first Associated Press wire services story with a byline appeared in 1925, the practice became commonplace shortly afterwards. Since the 1970s, most modern newspapers and magazines have attributed all but their shortest articles and their own editorial pieces to individual reporters or to wire services. An exception is the British weekly The Economist, which publishes nearly all material except blog posts anonymously; the Economist explains this practice as being traditional and reflective of the collaborative nature of their reporting. Articles that originate from press agency journalists are sometimes incorrectly attributed to newspaper staff. Dominic Ponsford of the Press Gazette gives the following examples: Ben Ellery's interview with the boyfriend of murdered Jo Yeates appeared in the Daily Mail and Daily Mirror. Andrew Buckwell's exclusive on a paternity issue involving Boris Johnson appeared in the Daily Mail without a byline crediting him.

Ponsford highlights cases in which newspapers byline fictional authors for pieces that attack other newspapers: for example the Daily Express's use of "Brendon Abbott".
