Thomas West, 3rd Baron De La Warr

Thomas West, 3rd Baron De La Warr was an English politician, for whom the bay, the river, a Native American people and U. S. state, all called "Delaware", were named. There have been two creations of Baron De La Warr, West came from the second, he was the son of Thomas West, 2nd Baron De La Warr, of Wherwell Abbey in Hampshire and Anne Knollys, daughter of Catherine Carey, Lady Knollys. He was born at Wherwell, Hampshire and died at sea while travelling from England to the Colony of Virginia. Counting from the original creation of the title, West would be the 12th Baron. Thomas West received his education at Oxford, he served in the English army under Robert Devereux, 2nd Earl of Essex, and, in 1601, was charged with supporting Essex's ill-fated insurrection against Queen Elizabeth I, but he was acquitted of those charges. He succeeded his father as Baron De La Warr in 1602, became a member of the Privy Council. Lord De La Warr was appointed governor-for-life and captain-general of the Colony of Virginia, to replace the governing council of the colony under the presidency of Captain John Smith.

Lord De La Warr returned to England due to illness in the spring of 1611, leaving his deputy, Sir Samuel Argall, in charge of the colony; that year, De La Warr wrote and published a book titled The Relation of the Right Honourable the Lord De-La-Warre, Lord Governour and Captaine Generall of the Colonie, planted in Virginea. He remained the nominal governor, after receiving complaints from the Virginia settlers about Argall's tyranny in governing them on his behalf, Lord De La Warr set sail for Virginia again in 1618 aboard the Neptune to investigate those charges, he died at sea on 7 June. It was thought for many years that Lord De La Warr had been buried at sea.

Under the Whyte notation for the classification of steam locomotives, a 2-8-8-8-4 has two leading wheels, three sets of eight driving wheels, four trailing wheels. Other equivalent classifications are:UIC classification: 1DDD2 French classification: 140+040+042Turkish classification: 45+44+46Swiss classification: 4/5+4/4+4/6 The equivalent UIC classification is to be refined to D for these engines. Only one 2-8-8-8-4 was built, a Mallet-type for the Virginian Railway in 1916. Built by Baldwin Locomotive Works, it became the only example of their class XA, so named due to the experimental nature of the locomotive. Like the same railroad's large articulated electrics and the Erie Railroad 2-8-8-8-2s, it was nicknamed "Triplex". An overview of Triplex engineering is given at Triplex; the XA was unable to sustain a speed greater than five miles an hour, since the six cylinders could consume more steam than the boiler could produce. The tender had a four-wheel truck at the rear to help guide the locomotive into curves when drifting back downhill after pushing a train over the hill.

The XA was sent back to Baldwin in 1920 and was rebuilt as two locomotives, a 2-8-8-0 and a 2-8-2. Unlike their progenitor which lasted only a few years in service, these two locomotives remained in service until 1953. Web Site of ToyTrains1 2-8-8-8-4 Triplex Steam Locomotives Virginian Class XA

Gloria Stavers

Gloria Stavers was the editor in chief of 16 Magazine. Her personality gave this teen celebrity magazine its stamp for many years. Stavers is credited with being one of the first women rock-and-roll journalists, but male editors and those who scoffed at teen or celebrity magazines sometimes called her "Mother Superior of the Inferior". Little is known of Stavers' childhood and adolescence, she was born Gloria Gurganus in Wilmington, North Carolina. She had married and divorced young, moved to New York to pursue a modeling career. For a time she was involved with the "jet set" and was rumored to be involved romantically with baseball player Mickey Mantle. Health issues forced Stavers to give up modeling. Stavers got her start at 16 Magazine in 1957 as a subscriptions clerk, she was paid 50 cents an hour. Stavers developed many of her ideas about how the magazine should be run by reading the fan letters from preteenaged girls writing to various celebrities in care of the magazine; as she read those letters, she remembered how she felt as a preteenager and what she most cared about at that age.

Stavers had no prior experience in journalism nor did she possess a university degree, but she rose through the ranks. She was promoted to the position of editor in chief, wherein she had unprecedented access to many of the top recording acts of the day. Although 16 Magazine had a staff of reporters on both coasts, Stavers wrote most of the magazine's feature articles herself, she served as the magazine's chief photographer and shot numerous photographs of stars such as Paul Revere and the Raiders, Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits, The Rascals, Jim Morrison, lead singer of The Doors. Stavers was known for being singleminded regarding the image of "her" magazine, her main priority was giving her teenage female reader base what it wanted, what they wanted, according to Stavers, was the feeling of being "close" to their favorite stars. Stavers would receive more than 300 letters per day addressed to her from teenagers, she read every letter and took their words to heart, tried to use the magazine to address the concerns that were written off as "silly" by adults.

As an editor, she eschewed controversial subject matter for 16 Magazine interviews. Rather than asking a celebrity about social issues, she preferred to discuss more personal and intimate topics such a celebrity's favorite color or meal or to ask him who his idea of whom a "dream date" would be, her style of interviewing was referred to as the "Forty Intimate Questions." Her first interview using that format was with the Canadian pop singer Paul Anka. Stavers, in her writings, attempted to make the celebrity appear approachable and "attainable" for her young readers. In short, the celebrity was a "surrogate boyfriend" for the reader. If the artist was married, in a long term relationship or was not heterosexual in orientation, that fact was never mentioned in the magazine. In her editorial content, Stavers if wrote critical or unflattering prose regarding any celebrity, she preferred to focus on the positive qualities of the "faves." She ignored those celebrities and musical acts whom she felt would not capture her readers' interest, or those who failed to capture her personal interest.

If the "fave" appeared to have fallen out of favor Stavers stopped covering that celebrity in the magazine, would find someone else to feature. Despite using a teenzine shorthand for some words such as "fave" for favorite, "cuz" for the word because, Stavers was a stickler for correct spelling and grammar. According to a feature article in the Saturday Evening Post in 1967, record companies consulted Stavers as to how to best promote an artist, would not make a decision until she weighed in with her opinion. At that time, few women in any field wielded such power. Tony Barrow, the press officer to The Beatles, credits Stavers with providing "significant help" toward the task of fast-tracking the band to the top of the U. S. charts. In the months before their first visit to the US, a substantial volume of the editorial space in 16 was given to The Beatles. Paul McCartney remembered Gloria as being "very dignified professional and business-like, she inspired respect from us all". In the 1980 movie The Idolmaker, there is an unflattering portrayal of a mercurial "prima donna" teen magazine editor, based loosely on Stavers.

The role of Ellen Fields was played by Maureen McCormick of The Brady Bunch. According to some of Stavers's contemporaries, she tended to run roughshod over underlings, she was known for her use of strong profanities and issuing ultimatums. However, Stavers was known to threaten some of the "faves" if she didn't get what she wanted from them. In one instance, Stavers threatened to print the full real name of Paul Revere if he didn't agree to make an appearance at a hospital to visit a dying girl. Revere's full name was Paul Revere Dick. Despite her many detractors, Stavers had an admirer and defender in American Bandstand host Dick Clark, he said. We both, as adults, could "think young" and see what was interesting and ascertain what the future would bring in the next few months. Gloria helped American Bandstand, the show helped 16, it was a two-way street." Many in the entertainment and publishing industries believed that Stavers and Clark shared the power to "make or break" a teen idol. At times, Stavers appeared to push people to the forefront who seemed to be unlikely candidates for teen idol status, such as comedian Lenny Bruce, Dark Shadows actor Jonathan Frid, Star Trek actor Leonard Nimoy, shock rock pioneer Alice Cooper.


Hey Rosetta!

Hey Rosetta! is a Canadian seven-piece indie rock band from St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador and led by singer/songwriter Tim Baker. Known for their energized live shows, the band created a large, layered sound by incorporating piano, violin and brass into the traditional four-piece rock setup. On October 13, 2017, the group announced via a lengthy Facebook post that they would be taking an indefinite hiatus; the origin of the band's name is inspired from the Rosetta Stone, a stele written in three languages: Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphs and Ancient Greek. In 2005, Baker had returned to St. John's from his travels across Canada and the U. S. with a head full of songs that he had written on acoustic guitar and piano. Soon realizing that the material he had written should sound bigger and required more elements, he brought together a band of St. John’s musicians, with Adam Hogan on electric guitar, Josh Ward on bass, Dave Lane on drums. After a few rehearsals, the band added cello and violin players and arranged their first show, choosing the name Hey Rosetta!.

Playing to a sold out room in Roxxy’s, the band generated a rapid impact around the local music scene and in the media, being named the "buzz band" of the 2005 Music NL Conference. Within a matter of months, the band had recorded and self-released a demo entitled EP, consisting of 4 studio songs, as well as three more songs put to tape during a live performance at The Ship Pub. Songs such as "Go Henry", "Plug Your Ears" and "The Simplest Thing" soon began to be heard on XM Satellite Radio's program The Verge, as well as on local radio stations in Newfoundland. In the winter of 2006, the band went into the studio with producer Don Ellis to begin work on their first LP, Plan Your Escape; the album featured 13 songs, including new recordings of "The Simplest Thing" and "Epitaph", featured on their EP. The band released the singles "Yes! Yes! Yes!" Followed by "Lions for Scottie", featured as the iTunes Single of the Week. Plan Your Escape earned the band widespread success as well as critical acclaim.

At the 2006 Music NL Awards, Hey Rosetta! won Group of the Year, Pop/Rock Group of the Year, CBC Galaxie Rising Star of the Year, Album of the Year. In 2007, Plan Your Escape was nominated for the Newcap Rock Recording of the Year at the East Coast Music Awards. In 2007, Hey Rosetta! signed on to Canadian label Sonic Records. Plan Your Escape was re-released as a 7 track EP on the Sonic label. After touring across most of Canada in support of the Plan Your Escape EP release, Hey Rosetta! was ready to create a sophomore record of their newer, more cinematic material. At the end of 2007, the band, now featuring current members Phil Maloney on drums and Kinley Dowling on violin, stationed themselves in the Sonic Temple studio in Halifax, Nova Scotia, working with producer Hawksley Workman to cull a twelve-song album from a larger batch of new songs, their second proper album and their first on Sonic Records, Into Your Lungs, was released in June 2008. The album featured a more expansive sound, deeper lyrical themes, more shifts between quiet and loud.

The first single "Red Heart" was a huge success and was used in CBC’s 2010 Vancouver Olympic broadcast as an anthem of Canadian pride during Stephen Brunt’s retrospective montage. 2008 and 2009 saw the band touring the world in support of Into Your Lungs, now playing shows across Canada, the United States and Australia. Touring cellist Romesh Thavanathan became a permanent member of the band’s lineup. At the inaugural Verge Music Awards, hosted by XM Satellite Radio’s The Verge, Into Your Lungs was named Album of the Year, chosen by fans via online vote; the band was a finalist for Artist of the Year. At the 2009 East Coast Music Awards, the band took home three awards including Group Recording of the Year, Recording of the Year, Alternative Recording of the Year, all for Into Your Lungs. Baker was nominated for Songwriter of the Year, but the award was won by Gordie Sampson; that same year, Into Your Lungs was shortlisted for the Polaris Music Prize. Hey Rosetta! contributed a new song to the first CBC Great Canadian Song Quest in 2009, writing "Old Crow Black Night Stand Still", inspired by Gros Morne National Park in their home province of Newfoundland and Labrador.

"Red Song", another new track that appeared live, was released on vinyl along with two other tracks as the Red Songs EP. The digital version of that EP contained an earlier version of the song "Bandages", which would soon become a part of the band’s third LP. Recorded in two sessions in April and May 2010, the band’s third album Seeds was their biggest release to date. Now having an established worldwide fan base, the anticipation for the album was high and the band wanted the sound to be "lighter and yet bigger", more orchestral but more intimate. To achieve this, they enlisted the help of producer Tony Doogan, having admired his work with artists like Mogwai and Belle & Sebastian. Released in February, 2011, Seeds was an instant success, reaching #1 in the iTunes Canadian album charts; the first 5000 copies of the album contained a special piece of seed paper created by Janet Power, which grew into vegetable plants when watered and planted in soil. This was tied thematically with the album’s concepts and symbolism, but to a more literal message of support for sustainable agriculture and food security.

The band has continued to work in this field since and in 2012, Baker undertook a trip to Honduras with USC Canada’s Seeds of Survival program, to witness the impact of new farming and a
