Vitus

Saint Vitus was a Christian saint from Sicily. He died as a martyr during the persecution of Christians by co-ruling Roman Emperors Diocletian and Maximian in 303. Vitus is counted as one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers of medieval Roman Catholicism. Saint Vitus' Day is celebrated on 15 June. In places where the Julian Calendar is used, this date coincides, in the 20th and 21st centuries, with 28 June on the Gregorian Calendar. In the late Middle Ages, people in Germany celebrated the feast of Vitus by dancing before his statue; this dancing became popular and the name "Saint Vitus Dance" was given to the neurological disorder Sydenham's chorea. It led to Vitus being considered the patron saint of dancers and of entertainers in general. Vitus is considered the patron saint of actors, comedians and Jayden's epileptics to Genesius of Rome, he is said to protect against lightning strikes, animal attacks and oversleeping. Vitus is the patron saint of the city of Rijeka in Croatia. Various places in Austria and Bavaria are named Sankt Veit in his honour.

According to the legend, Vitus and Crescentia were martyrs under Diocletian. The earliest testimony for their veneration is offered by the "Martyrologium Hieronymianum"; the fact that the note is in the three most important manuscripts indicates that it was in the common exemplar of these, which appeared in the fifth century. The same Martyrologium has under the same day another mention of a Vitus at the head of a list of nine martyrs, with the statement of the place, in Eboli, "In Lucania", that is, in the Roman province of that name in southern Italy between the Tuscan Sea and the Gulf of Taranto, it is possible that it is the same martyr Vitus in both cases. According to J. P. Kirsch, the testimony to the public veneration of the three saints in the fifth century proves that they are historical martyrs. There are no historical accounts of them, nor of the time or the details of their martyrdom. During the sixth and seventh centuries a purely legendary narrative of their martyrdom appeared which appears to be based upon other legends on the legend of Saint Potitus, ornamented with accounts of fantastic miracles.

According to this legend, which has no apparent historical value, Vitus was a 7-year-old son of a senator of Lucania. He resisted his father's attempts, which included various forms of torture, to make him turn away from his faith, he fled with his tutor Modestus and Modestus's wife Crescentia, Vitus's nanny, to Lucania. He was taken from there to Rome to drive out a demon which had taken possession of a son of the Emperor Diocletian; this he did, yet, because he remained steadfast in the Christian faith, he was tortured together with his tutors. By a miracle an angel brought back the three to Lucania, where they died from the tortures they had endured. Three days Vitus appeared to a distinguished matron named Florentia, who found the bodies and buried them in the spot where they were; the veneration of the martyrs spread in Southern Italy and Sicily, as is shown by the note in the "Martyrologium Hieronymianum". Pope Gregory the Great mentions a monastery dedicated to Vitus in Sicily; the veneration of St. Vitus, the chief saint of the group appeared early at Rome.

Pope Gelasius I mentions a shrine dedicated to him, at Rome in the seventh century the chapel of a deaconry was dedicated to him. In 756 AD, it is said that the relics of St. Vitus were brought to the monastery of St-Denis by Abbot Fulrad, they were presented to Abbot Warin of Corvey in Germany, who solemnly transferred some of them to this abbey in 836. From Corvey the veneration of St Vitus spread throughout Westphalia and in the districts of eastern and northern Germany, his popularity grew in Prague, Bohemia when, in 925 A. D. king Henry I of Germany presented as a gift the bones of one hand of St. Vitus to Wenceslaus, Duke of Bohemia. Since this relic has been a sacred treasure in the St. Vitus Cathedral in Prague; the veneration of St. Vitus became popular in Slavic lands, where his name may have replaced the old cult of the god of light Svetovid. In Serbia his feast day, known as Vidovdan, is of particular historical importance; the day is part of the Kosovo Myth — the Battle of Kosovo occurred on that day.

In Hungary he has been venerated as Szent Vid since the early Middle Ages. In Bulgaria, it is called Vidovden or Vidov Den and is well known among the Shopi, in the western part of the country. In Croatia, 123 churches are dedicated to St. Vitus. In the Netherlands, St. Vitus is the patron saint of Winschoten, as well as of the region of't Gooi, where in each of the three largest towns, the main Catholic Church is dedicated to St Vitus. Saint Vitus is one of the Fourteen Martyrs, he is invoked against chorea, called St. Vitus Dance, he is represented as a young man with a palm-leaf, in a cauldron, sometimes wi

Marchwood

Marchwood is a village and civil parish located in Hampshire, United Kingdom. It lies between Totton and Hythe on the western shore of Southampton Water and directly east of the New Forest; the population of the village in the 2011 census was 6,141. Marchwood has seen human activity since Roman times; the Roman road from the Calshot/Lepe area passed through here on its way to Nursling. Roman coins have been found at Bury Farm; the name "Marchwood" is most from the Old English "merecewudu" meaning "smallage wood". It is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086 as "Merceode", when the manor was held by Alwin, whose father Wulfgeat held the manor before 1066; the manor of Marchwood became known as Marchwood Romsey. John de Romsey held the vill of Marchwood in 1316, he was succeeded by Sir Walter Romsey of Rockbourne -- 4 holding land in Marchwood. The manor passed in the same way as the manor of Romsey Horseys, until the death of Thomas Horsey in 1477. John Romsey of Tatchbury died in 1494 holding the manor from John Horsey, as did his son, another John Romsey who died in 1503.

His son William Romsey sold the manor to Henry White. The manor passed from Robert White to his son William in 1564–5. In 1587 William White sold the manor to Nicholas Venables. William Rickman died in possession of the manor in 1599, leaving his daughter Katherine wife of David Urry his heir. A hundred years David Urry, described as of St. James, sold the manor to Gilbert Serle of Leghorn, it subsequently passed to Sir William Oglander; the manor afterwards passed into the Saunders family. One other manor close to Marchwood was called Bury, it occurs in a deed of the 13th century as the "manor of Eling called Burylond." In the 16th century it was absorbed into Colbury manor, it is now represented by Bury Farm just north of Marchwood. Marchwood was at one time in the parish of Eling, is situated in that part of the ancient parish which lies low at the mouth of the River Test, southeast of Eling village. Cracknore, in Marchwood, was the landing place of the ferry from Southampton long before the Hythe Ferry.

There was an important beacon site here at Beacon Hill and sending messages to both ends of the Isle of Wight. Marchwood became a separate ecclesiastical parish in 1843, a civil parish in 1894; the church was built and endowed by Horatio Francis Kingsford Holloway in 1843. By the beginning of the 20th century, there were Government gunpowder magazines and a Metropolitan Police barracks in Marchwood. Marchwood Military Port was built here during World War II, which played a vital role in the Normandy landings; the Royal Navy Ordnance Depot was. The port continues to service Britain's overseas military interests. Despite being a village, Marchwood is the home of a refuse incinerator known as Marchwood Incinerator, a sewage works, a large military port and a natural gas fuelled combined cycle power station known as Marchwood Power Station. Replacing an older station, dismantled during the 1980s; the 842 megawatt facility is one of the most efficient generators of electricity in the UK at 58% fuel efficiency.

Earley

Earley is a town and civil parish in the English non-administrative county of Berkshire. Along with neighbouring Woodley, it forms part of the extensive eastern suburbs of Reading; the Office for National Statistics places Earley within the Reading/Wokingham Urban Area. The name is sometimes Erlegh; the suburb consists of a number of smaller areas, including Maiden Erlegh and Lower Earley, lies some 3 miles south and east of the centre of Reading, some 4 miles northwest of Wokingham. It has a population of around 32,000. In 2014, the RG6 postcode area was rated one of the most desirable postcode areas to live in England; the main campus of the University of Reading, Whiteknights Park, lies in Earley and in the borough of Reading. Evidence of prehistoric man has been found in locations around Earley. For example, a hand axe was found in the railway cutting. Most of these finds are thought to date from the late Paleolithic period, around 35,000 years ago. Traces of flimsy shelters from the Mesolithic were discovered at the site of the old power station at Thames Valley Park in north Earley.

Tools from that time have been found, including a flint blade found in a garden in Silverdale Road. Archaeological evidence for continued human presence during the Bronze Age and Iron Age was discovered on the site of the Thames Valley Business Park, Roman remains were found on a building site off Meadow Road. Earley is mentioned in the Domesday Book as "Herlei", with two main manors: Erleigh St Bartholomew known as Erleigh Court. In Domesday Herlei is said to be "held by Osbern Giffard from the King Dunn held it from King Edward in freehold; the value was 100 shillings 60 shillings, now £4". The Erleghs, a family of knightly rank who took their name from the manors, held the manors of St Bartholemew and St Nicolas in the latter part of the 12th century through the 13th century and part of the 14th century. John de Erlegh was known as the White Knight, hence the renaming of the manor of Erleigh St Nicolas to Whiteknights; the Whiteknights estate was owned by the Englefields, from 1606 to 1798, by the Marquis of Blandford the 5th Duke of Marlborough.

The manor of Maiden Erleigh was formed out of the Manor of Erlegh, as a gift of land by John de Erlegh to Robert de Erlegh in 1368. It was transferred to Charles Hide of Abingdon. In 1673 the estate was sold to Valentine Crome, after many changes of ownership at the end of the 18th century, it belonged to William Matthew Birt, Governor General of the Leeward Islands. In 1818 the property passed to MP for Downton in Wiltshire. In 1878 it was purchased by John Hargreaves, Master of the South Berks Hunt, who founded a course where hunt and yeomanry races were run; the course extended over an area now covered by Hillside Road and Mill Lane. The grandstand stood on an area opposite Loddon Infant School; the estate was purchased in 1903 by the millionaire Solly Joel, well known in horse racing circles, who had a racecourse on the estate. The racecourse was demolished during the First World War and the grandstand was re-erected at Newbury Racecourse, he donated a piece of his land to the village to be used for sporting purposes: the park and pavilion were opened by the Duke of York King George VI, in 1927 and, as Sol Joel Park, the park and the original pavilion are used to this day.

The estate of Bulmershe Court once belonged to the Abbey of Reading. In the 18th century it was the home of Viscount Sidmouth, Prime Minister. Bulmershe College, which became part of the University of Reading in 1989, occupied this site until 2012; the site of the former Bulmershe College has been redeveloped, principally for housing. Until 1888, Earley extended westwards from the Three Tuns crossroads down the Wokingham Road and into Reading. To enable this section to be linked into the drainage system, Reading extended its boundaries to the Three Tuns crossroads, this part of Earley was incorporated into Reading. At that time, the centre of Earley was Saint Peters Church. Today, some residents living over the boundary in Reading think of themselves as belonging to Earley though they pay their council tax to Reading Borough Council. Indeed, this area of Reading Borough still forms part of the ecclesiastical parish of Earley St Peter, which extends as far as, but does not include, Palmer Park.

The University of Reading began as a University College, Reading, in 1892. Of the six large villas on the estate four were designed by Waterhouse. Waterhouse designed Reading School in Erleigh Road, in the borough of Reading, extended Pepper Manor, now'Old School' in Leighton Park School, on Shinfield Road, in 1890, built Grove House on the north of the school site. Earley grew both before and after World War II, was designated a town in 1974. From 1977, the Lower Earley housing estate was constructed by private companies doubling Earley's populat

Time Out (2015 film)

Time Out is a Bollywood film starring Chirag Malhotra and Pranay Pachauri in the lead roles. It is directed by Rikhil Bahadur. Time Out is a 2015 Indian drama short film directed and written by Rikhil Bahadur and produced by Viacom 18; the film introduces three fresh faces - Pranay Pachauri and Kaamya Sharma. The trailer of the movie released on 14 August 2015; the film released on 25 September 2015. The friendship and shared love between two brothers is tested when a 14-year-old boy is confronted with the complexities of a simple relationship. Gaurav finds out, he is unable to accept this. Adding to his woes, the girl he fancies friend zones him. Does he find a closure? “How to fix your gay kid” is what their mother types on google when Mihir reveals his sexual orientation and wishes to come out of the closet. This is the best scene of the film, which sums up the hypocrisy that so called ‘liberal’ parents exhibit. If there were more poignant moments like these, Time Out had the potential to be a game changer.

Time Out may not have a hard-hitting story but it does make you think. Under its Richie Rich garb, lies a thought that's enlightening and liberating. Both the lead actors Chirag Pranay Pachauri are aptly cast. Chirag Malhotra as Gaurav Pranay Pachauri as Mihir Vedabrata Rao as Varun Sanya Arora as Kanika Riya Kothari as Tanvi Raunaq Chopra as Zorawar Shiva Dawar as Keith Tarana Marwah as Ria Amitabh Sharma as Pankaj Agarwal Geetanjali Sharma as Shobha Aggarwal Kaamya Sharma as Ananya Aditya Jain as Rohan Rahul Sharma as Coach P. K. Rahul Tripathi as Rahul Tripathi The music of Time Out is composed by Sandesh Shandilya.
