Uniramia

Uniramia is a group within the arthropods. In the past this group included the Onychophora; the group is used in a narrower sense. Uniramia is one of three subphyla in the Arthropoda classification suggested by Sidnie Manton; this classification divided arthropods into a three-phyla polyphyletic group, with phylum Uniramia including the Hexapoda and the Onychophora. The discovery of fossil lobopods, determined to be intermediate between onychophorans and arthropods led to the splintering of the Lobopoda and Onychophora into separate groups; this redefined the Uniramia as "true" arthropods with exoskeletons and jointed appendages. Uniramians have uniramous appendages. Systematics can result in rival taxonomies, this seems to have happened to Uniramia; the name Uniramia was temporarily rejected as a polyphyletic group, but when used now refers to the subphylum consisting of the insects + myriapods. Subphylum Uniramia is characterized by uniramous appendages, one pair of antennae and two pairs of mouthparts.

Their body forms and ecologies are diverse. While most unirames are terrestrial, "some are aquatic for part or all of their life cycles." Atelocerata is described as replacing Uniramia in early twentieth-century texts, where it was the preferred name for the category uniting the Hexapoda + Myriapoda. The Crustacea were considered the closest relatives of the Uniramia, sometimes these were united as Mandibulata. However, the competing hypothesis — that Crustacea and Hexapoda form a monophyletic group, the Pancrustacea, to which the Myriapoda are the closest relatives — has support from molecular and fossil evidence.

Gregoir of Rosemarkie

Gregoir is the third known 12th century Bishop of Ross, an episcopal see based at Rosemarkie. According to the Chronicle of Melrose, Gregoir was consecrated by Ernald, Bishop of St Andrews acting as a Papal legate, in 1161, he occurred in a document of Scone Abbey in either 1163 or 1164, namely in "the eleventh year of Malcolm", the year ending 23 May 1164. He witnessed a charter issued at Inverness by King William the Lion, datable to between 1172 and 1174, confirming a gift of land made by Simon de Tosny, Bishop of Moray, to a hermit in Inverness-shire. Little more is known of his episcopate; the Chronicle of Melrose reported his death in 1195, the election of his successor Reinald Macer in March of that year. The English chronicler Roger of Howden gave his death-date for the same year, added that it fell in the month of February. Anderson, Alan Orr, Early Sources of Scottish History, 2 vols, Barrow, G. W.

Knight Street Bridge

The Knight Street Bridge is a cantilever bridge which spans the North Arm of the Fraser River in British Columbia, connecting Vancouver and Richmond, serving as a feeder route for Highways 91 and 99 to its south. It is located to the east of the Oak Street Bridge. Besides spanning the river, the bridge provides access to Mitchell Island; the bridge has a length of 1436 metres and has clearances of 12.2 by 79.2 metres over the north channel, 20.1 by 109.7 metres for the south channel. The northern section carries six lanes of traffic; the bridge has the distinction of having the most bridge motor vehicle accidents in BC. In addition, the bridge's interchange with Marine Drive is in the top three intersections for motor vehicle accidents in BC. TransLink, the regional transportation authority, is responsible for the bridge; the bridge was built to replace an obsolete span linking the south end of Fraser Street with No. 5 Road in Richmond via Mitchell Island. The Fraser Street Bridge was a through truss built in 1905 with a swing span on the northern side of Mitchell Island.

The channel barges routine. The height of the Knight Street bridge alleviated this problem; the construction of the Knight Street Bridge took 5 years, costing about $15 million including the approaches. Electric heating cables were installed in the deck to minimize the use of de-icing salt in the winter; the bridge carries a water pipe and a gas pipe, with the former being the only water supply to Mitchell Island at the time. The bridge opened on January 15, 1974, the Fraser Street Bridge was dismantled the next month. On January 15, 2000 the boom of a mobile crane transported on a barge named T. L. Sharpe, towed by the Sea Cap XII, struck the underside of the Knight Street Bridge at 1:45 PM, damaging the bridge and the fixtures secured underneath its deck; the impact caused the boom to bend and the crane to slide off the barge and sink, the bridge was closed to traffic for about 48 hours. Water supply to Mitchell Island via the bridge was shut down for 25 days, an emergency bypass water supply from Vancouver was installed.

The incident prompted the City of Richmond to install a second water main to Mitchell Island in 2002. List of crossings of the Fraser River List of bridges in Canada

Schangnau

Schangnau is a municipality in the administrative district of Emmental in the canton of Bern in Switzerland. Schangnau is first mentioned in 1306 as Schoengowe. By the 14th century the Ministerialis family of Sumiswald, in service to the Kyburgs, owned most of the village. Between 1363 and 1389 they sold their land and rights to the local nobleman Jost von Wald, his descendants sold the village to the city of Bern in 1420. By the second half of the 15th century both Bern and Lucerne claimed the village as they attempted to expand their borders to the detriment of the other. In 1470 a border treaty established Bernese ownership over Schangnau. Schangnau and the nearby village of Marbach, today a part of Escholzmatt-Marbach in the Canton of Lucerne, formed part of the parish of Trub. In 1524 the two villages broke away from Trub to form the parish of Marbach-Schangnau. A few years in 1528, Bern adopted the new faith of the Protestant Reformation and the village converted. A Reformed church was built in Schangnau in 1536 and in 1594 it separated from Marbach to form a parish.

The village church was replaced with a new building in 1618. In the 17th century, as religious tension increased in Switzerland, Schangnau's location on the border with Catholic Lucerne became important. After the first First War of Villmergen in 1656, Bern made Protestant Schangnau into a market town to offset the nearby Catholic market town of Escholzmatt; the local economy was based on raising crops on the valley floor, seasonal alpine herding and transporting timber down the Emme River. The Bubenalp alpine meadow appears in a record in 1281, earlier than the village itself. By the 15th century, much of the mountain forest had been cleared to provide pastures for cattle. A small glass factory opened in the village in 1720, but was overshadowed by the larger factory in Entlebuch. Following the 1798 French invasion, Schangnau became part of the Helvetic Republic district of Oberemmental. With the collapse of the Republic and the 1803 Act of Mediation it became part of the Signau district, where it remained until the district was dissolved in 2009.

In the 19th century the Wiggen and Schallenberg Pass roads connected the village with the rest of the country. The completion of a station on the Bern-Luzern Railroad in 1875 made it easier to travel; however little industry settled in the municipality and agriculture and the dairy industry provided the majority of jobs. In 2005, over half of all jobs in Schangnau were in agriculture, while only 14% were in industry; the Kemmeribodenbad Inn at the foot of the Hohgant opened in 1835 and provided the start of a small tourism industry. Schangnau has an area of 36.48 km2. As of 2012, a total of 19.43 km2 or 53.3% is used for agricultural purposes, while 13.05 km2 or 35.8% is forested. The rest of the municipality is 0.75 km2 or 2.1% is settled, 0.39 km2 or 1.1% is either rivers or lakes and 2.91 km2 or 8.0% is unproductive land. During the same year and buildings made up 1.3% and transportation infrastructure made up 0.7%. A total of 31.0% of the total land area is forested and 4.0% is covered with orchards or small clusters of trees.

Of the agricultural land, 26.3% is pasturage and 26.1% is used for alpine pastures. All the water in the municipality is flowing water. Of the unproductive areas, 3.7 % is unproductive 4.3 % is too rocky for vegetation. The municipality has the highest elevation of any in the Emmental, it is located around the source of the Emme River. The municipality includes the village of Schangnau and the hamlet of Wald as well as individual houses in the valley. On 31 December 2009 the municipality's former district, was dissolved. On the following day, 1 January 2010, it joined the newly created Verwaltungskreis Emmental; the blazon of the municipal coat of arms is Gules a Bar wavy Argent overall a Fir Tree Vert trunked and eradicated Or surrounded in chief with three Mullets of the last. Schangnau has a population of 908; as of 2012, 2.5% of the population are resident foreign nationals. Between the last 2 years the population changed at a rate of -2.2%. Migration accounted for -0.5%, while births and deaths accounted for -1.0%.

Most of the population speaks German as their first language, Serbo-Croatian is the second most common and French is the third. As of 2008, the population was 49.7 % female. The population was made up of 13 non-Swiss men. There were 9 non-Swiss women. Of the population in the municipality, 586 or about 64.4% were born in Schangnau and lived there in 2000. There were 202 or 22.2% who were born in the same canton, while 72 or 7.9% were born somewhere else in Switzerland, 26 or 2.9% were born outside of Switzerland.
