Sonnet 63

Sonnet 63 is one of 154 sonnets published in 1609 by the English playwright and poet William Shakespeare. It is one of the Fair Youth sequence. Contrary to most of the other poems in the Fair Youth sequence, in sonnets 63 to 68 there is no explicit addressee, indeed the second person pronoun is not used anywhere in sonnets 63 to 68. In sonnet 63 the poet expresses his concern that the memory of his love's beauty be preserved and protected; the poet imagines a time when the young man will be worn, as he, the poet, is now. The passing of time will drain the young man's blood, carve wrinkles in his face and wear away all of his beauty. Time will take away the young man. To prevent the young man's beauty being cut from memory, this sonnet will be read and will preserve the memory of the young man's beauty. Unlike Sonnet 2, in which immortality is gained through procreation, here it is gained in the reading of this poem. Sonnet 63 is an Shakespearean sonnet; the English sonnet has three quatrains, followed by a final rhyming couplet.

It follows the typical rhyme scheme of the form, ABAB CDCD EFEF GG, is composed in iambic pentameter, a type of poetic metre based on five pairs of metrically weak/strong syllabic positions. The third line exemplifies a regular iambic pentameter: × / × / × / × / × / When hours have drained his blood, filled his brow / = ictus, a metrically strong syllabic position. × = nonictus. The sonnet is quite metrically regular, but two variations stand out: × / × / × / / × × / With time's injurious hand crushed and o'er-worn. Here, both instances highlight Time's cruel effects upon beauty. Like Sonnet 2, this poem makes use of cutting and crushing imagery to depict the effects of time in creating wrinkles on the face; the prevailing metaphors in this sonnet compare youthful beauty to riches, similar to Sonnet 4, old age and death to night, similar to Sonnet 12. The attention to the subject's mortality, returned to in this sonnet, remains the focus for the next two sonnets, Sonnet 65 contains much the same resolution as this one does.

Locke played 17 games for the Crushers in his rookie season, scoring one try. In 1996, he won the club's Club Person of the Year award. Locke spent five seasons before retiring at the end of the 2000 season. North Queensland Cowboys Club Person of the Year: 1996, 2002 Statistics are correct to the end of the 2000 season After retiring, Locke became the Cowboys' business development manager. In 2002, he won the club's Club Person of the Year award for the second time.

Invasion gene associated RNA (InvR)

Invasion gene associated RNA is a small non-coding RNA involved in regulating one of the major outer cell membrane porin proteins in Salmonella species. InvR was predicted by computational screening the genome of Salmonella typhimurium for novel sRNA genes. In this screen 46 candidate sRNA genes not conserved in Escherichia coli were identified; the Salmonella the virulence factors that facilitate invasion of the host intestinal epithlium are located in a ~ 40 kb region in the Salmonella genome referred to as Salmonella pathogenicity Island 1. The gene encoding InvR is located in this SPI-1 region between two genes called invH and STM2901. InvR appears to be unique to Salmonella species as there does not appear to be any predicted homologues in other Enterobacteriaceae species. InvR appears to be independently expressed from its own promoter, its expression is activated by the transcription factor HilD and has been shown to be abundantly expressed during exponential growth. InvR has been shown to bind the RNA chaperone Hfq in vitro and Hfq is required for in vivo stability.

In S. typhimurium InvR RNA has been shown to repress the synthesis of the abundant outer membrane porin protein OmpD. Despite being located in the SPI-1 region there has been no link identified between the function of InvR and the SPI-1 dependent secretion pathway or invasion.

Kirchhain (Bz Kassel) station

Kirchhain station is a through station at the 89.2 km mark on the Main-Weser Railway. It is located centrally in the centre of the town of Kirchhain in the German state of Hesse; the station was the starting point of the Ohm Valley Railway to Burg- und Nieder-Gemünden and the Wohra Valley Railway to Gemünden. The station is classified by Deutsche Bahn as a category 4 station; the station was opened along with the Main-Weser Railway on 4 March 1850 under the name of Kirchhain. The continuous connection from Kassel to Frankfurt was opened on 15 May 1852. Before that trains only ran between Giessen; the northern section of the Ohm Valley Railway was opened as the Kirchhain District Railway by the Prussian state railways on 1 April 1900. One year it was extended to Burg- und Nieder-Gemünden station on the Prussian state railway's Gießen–Fulda line. Passenger services on the Ohm Valley Railway were abandoned on 31 May 1980; the line was closed between Nieder-Ofleiden and Burg- und Nieder-Gemünden on 28 September 1991 and dismantled in 1999.

Freight and special passenger services continue between Nieder-Ofleiden. Reactivation of the whole line between Kirchhain and Burg- und Nieder-Gemünden is under discussion. On 1 May 1914, the Wohra Valley Railway was opened to Gemünden via Rauschenberg; as at 28 May 1972, passenger services, which had fallen were abandoned altogether. Freight traffic has not operated on the line since 19 December 1981. On 31 December 1981, the entire Wohra Valley Railway was reduced to a 200 m long section in Kirchhain, now used as a siding. Kirchhain station now has an island platform with two platform tracks opposite the entrance building, two crossing loops without a platform and a “house” platform, only used for a morning shuttle service to Giessen and occasional special trains on the Ohm Valley Railway. On both sides of the entrance building there are ride spaces; the entrance building of Kirchhain station was built in 1849 as a station and administration building of the Hessian State Railways. The symmetrical three-storey central section with two-storey wings with gabled roofs, which have the roof ridges running parallel with the tracks.

The building has Rundbogenstil brick terracotta ornaments. The symmetrical main building was extended to the east as a two-storey building. Single-storey extensions were added around 1900; the Neoclassical building was designed by the Kassel court architect Julius Eugen Ruhl and is a heritage-listed building. The station is located in the area administered by the Rhine-Main Transport Association and is served at hourly intervals by the Mittelhessen-Express between Treysa and Frankfurt. In Giessen, it is coupled with a section of the Mittelhessen-Express running from Dillenburg. Furthermore, there are direct Regional-Express services every two hours between Frankfurt and Kassel. Outside the station there is a bus station with connections to the villages around Kirchhain including those which are no longer served by the Ohm Valley Railway. Planungsbüro Holger Fischer.
