Trypillia is a village in the Obukhiv Raion of the Kiev Oblast in central Ukraine, with 2800 inhabitants. It lies about 40 km south from Kiev on the Dnieper. Trypillia is the site of an ancient mega-settlement dating to 4300–4000 BCE belonging to the Cucuteni-Trypillian culture. Settlements of this culture were as large as 200 hectares; this proto-city is just one of 2440 Cucuteni-Trypillia settlements discovered so far in Moldova and Ukraine. 194 of these settlements had an area of more than 10 hectares between 5000–2700 BCE and more than 29 settlements had an area in the range 100–450 Hectares. It was near Trypillia that archaeologist Vikentiy Khvoyka discovered an extensive Neolithic site of the Cucuteni-Trypillian culture, one of the major Neolithic-Chalcolithic cultures of Eastern Europe. Khvoika reported his findings in 1897 to the 11th Congress of Archaeologists, marking the official date of the discovery of this culture; the name "Trypillia" means "three fields" in the Slavic languages.

It was first mentioned by Kievan chroniclers in connection with the Battle of the Stugna River in 1093. During the 12th century, Trypillia was a fortress which defended approaches towards Kiev from the steppe. One of its rulers was Mstislav Mstislavich. During the subsequent centuries, the town dwindled into insignificance. In 1919 it was the venue of the Trypillia Incident, in which Ukrainian forces under Danylo Terpylo massacred a unit of Bolsheviks. History of Ukraine Neolithic Europe Videiko M. Yu.

Dayna Deruelle

Dayna Deruelle is a Canadian curler from Brampton, Ontario. He skips a rink on the World Curling Tour, his team competes in various events on the Ontario Curling Tour throughout the season and competes annually in the Ontario Curling Association Dominion Tankard play downs. Deruelle and his teammates Andrew McGaugh, Kevin Lagerquist and Evan DeViller enjoyed some success in their first season as a team when they qualified to represent Region 3 in the 2012 Ontario Dominion Tankard in Stratford, Ontario. Furthermore, the team qualified for the playoffs after finishing 5-5 in the round robin and winning a tie-breaker. In 2013, Team Deruelle once again qualified to represent Region 3 in 2013 Ontario Dominion Tankard, this time being played at the Barrie Molson Centre in Barrie, ON; the foursome started the week slow but climbed back to a respectable 4-6 record to finish off the championships. Deruelle joined the Jake Walker rink at third in 2013. With Team Walker, he finished fourth at the 2014 provincial championship, but they failed to make it back in 2015.

Deruelle left the team after that season to form his own rink with Kevin Flewwelling, David Staples and Sean Harrison. The team made it to the 2016 Ontario Tankard, finishing 4-6; the next season, at the 2017 Ontario Tankard, they won one fewer game, finishing 3-6. The team played in the 2017 Olympic Pre-Trials; the team failed to qualify for the 2018 Tankard, broke up after the season. In 2018, Deruelle formed a new team with Ryan Werenich and Shawn Kaufman, they qualified for the 2019 Ontario Tankard. Deruelle is employed as a sales executive for Grand Slam Media, he is married to Nicole Deruelle.

Cardinal assignment

In set theory, the concept of cardinality is developable without recourse to defining cardinal numbers as objects in the theory itself. The concepts are developed by defining equinumerosity in terms of functions and the concepts of one-to-one and onto, it is not a true partial ordering because antisymmetry need not hold: if both A ≤ c B and B ≤ c A, it is true by the Cantor–Bernstein–Schroeder theorem that A = c B i.e. A and B are equinumerous, but they do not have to be equal; that at least one of A ≤ c B ≤ c A holds turns out to be equivalent to the axiom of choice. Most of the interesting results on cardinality and its arithmetic can be expressed with =c; the goal of a cardinal assignment is to assign to every set A a specific, unique set, only dependent on the cardinality of A. This is in accordance with Cantor's original vision of cardinals: to take a set and abstract its elements into canonical "units" and collect these units into another set, such that the only thing special about this set is its size.

These would be ordered by the relation ≤ c and =c would be true equality. As Y. N. Moschovakis says, this is an exercise in mathematical elegance, you don't gain much unless you are "allergic to subscripts." However, there are various valuable applications of "real" cardinal numbers in various models of set theory. In modern set theory, we use the Von Neumann cardinal assignment, which uses the theory of ordinal numbers and the full power of the axioms of choice and replacement. Cardinal assignments do need the full axiom of choice, if we want a decent cardinal arithmetic and an assignment for all sets. Formally, assuming the axiom of choice, the cardinality of a set X is the least ordinal α such that there is a bijection between X and α; this definition is known as the von Neumann cardinal assignment. If the axiom of choice is not assumed we need to do something different; the oldest definition of the cardinality of a set X is as the set of all sets that are equinumerous with X: this does not work in ZFC or other related systems of axiomatic set theory because this collection is too large to be a set, but it does work in type theory and in New Foundations and related systems.

However, if we restrict from this class to those equinumerous with X that have the least rank it will work. Moschovakis, Yiannis N. Notes on Set Theory. New York: Springer-Verlag, 1994

Lothingland Rural District

Lothingland was a rural district in East Suffolk, named after the ancient half-hundred of Lothingland, merged with Mutford half-hundred in 1763 to form Mutford and Lothingland. The rural district was formed in 1934 by the merger of most of Mutford and Lothingland Rural District along with part of Blything Rural District, both of which were being abolished, it covered a coastal area between Great Lowestoft. The district was abolished in 1974 under the Local Government Act 1972, split between the new districts of borough of Great Yarmouth and the district of Waveney, in Suffolk.
