Wexford GAA

For more information see Wexford Senior Hurling Championship and Wexford Senior Football ChampionshipThe Wexford County Board of the Gaelic Athletic Association or Wexford GAA is one of the 32 county boards of the GAA in Ireland, is responsible for Gaelic games in County Wexford. The county board is responsible for the Wexford inter-county teams. Wexford is one of the few counties to have won the All-Ireland Senior Championship in both football and hurling. Wexford have won five Football Championships, with the most recent in 1918. Hurling has been pl1ayed in Wexford from medieval times. Evidence of this can be found in the hurling ballads of the 16th centuries; the nickname "Yellowbellies" is said to have been given to the county's hurlers by Sir Caesar Colclough of Tintern in south Wexford, following a 17th-century game between a team of hurlers under his patronage and a team of hurlers from Cornwall, near Glynn in county Wexford. Others have said that King George III shouted "come on the yellow bellies" at an exhibition match near London, in which the Wexford hurlers were wearing yellow ribbons.

The real reason they are called the'yellow-bellies' is because one D Coffey declared it back in 1982. Wexford had one of the greatest football teams in the history of the GAA in the 1910s, winning six consecutive Leinster titles and the first team to win four All-Ireland titles in a row; the team was trained by 1900 star James'the Bull' Roche, who had fought for the World heavyweight boxing championship. The team featured Fr. Ned Wheeler, Aidan Doyle and the O'Kennedy brothers and Sean; the latter was the team captain. The feat of six Leinster titles in a row was only equalled in 1931 when Kildare won the sixth in a sequence that began in 1926. Wexford's last major football success was winning the Leinster title in 1945. From on, hurling took precedence in Wexford and as a consequence the Wexford footballers suffered, with the team descending into obscurity for many years. More Wexford have had a strong team; the team reached the Division 1 League final of 2005 under the management of Pat Roe but were beaten by a strong Armagh team that day.

In April 2008, in Jason Ryan's first year as manager of the team, Wexford beat Fermanagh to win the Division 3 League final. This proved to be the first success of what would be a historic year for Wexford football, as they reached their first Leinster final in over 50 years. Along the way they stunned Meath by coming from ten points down to win their quarter-final in Carlow, beat Laois comprehensively in the semi-final; this was Wexford's 5th consecutive appearance in their first victory. In the final they were comprehensively beaten by a strong Dublin team, 3–23 to 0–09. However, Wexford recovered from their humiliation and came through the back door, beating Down by seven points in a shock result to reach the last eight and a match-up with Armagh. From here, they produced one of the shocks of the championship, winning by 1–14 to 0–12 to reach their first All Ireland semi-final since 1945, they were beaten by 6 points by Tyrone, having been within two points of the eventual champions in the closing stages.

Wexford again reached the Leinster final in the 2011 Leinster Championship. Wexford had an easier run to the final than in 2008, facing Offaly and Carlow. In the final they ran them much closer. A poor performance from Dublin's star player Bernard Brogan helped Wexford stay in touch with Dublin throughout the match, but a bizarre own goal meant they lost by 2–12 to 1–12, to the team that went on to win the All-Ireland. Wexford entered Round 4 of the qualifiers where they faced Limerick, but they were beaten by a single point, on a score of 1–18 to 1–17.

This is in evidence in several one-sided results over the years: Kildare were beaten by 14–15 to 1–1 in an 1897 Croke Cup match. The Antrim team were beaten by 12–17 to 2–3 in a 1954 All-Ireland semi-final. Nicky Rackard, who scored 7–7 at that day, was Wexford's greatest hurler, he starred in two clashes with Cork in 1954 and 1956. Wexford lost the first after having a goal disallowed, but won the second with the combination of an Art Foley save and Nicky Rackard goal in the closing minutes. In the 1970s, the distinctive red-haired Tony Doran was the star as Kilkenny and Wexford played ten Leinster finals in succession. In 1984 they claimed that the final whistle was blown prematurely when they were beaten by a single point in the Leinster final. In 1996 Wexford, led by Liam Griffin and captained by Martin Storey, brought the Liam MacCarthy Cup back to Slaneyside for the first time since 1968. Cork and Tipperary have dominated the honours in recent years. Wexford's most recent hurling success was in the Leinster Final of 2019.

In the Leinster semi-final, a draw in Innovate Wexford Park between Wexford and Kilkenny made it a rematch for the final. However, hurling in Wexford has been on the slide since 1996, their last All-Ireland success, the Leinster title in 2004 papered over the cracks. Davy Fitzgerald took over as manager of the team for 2017, has made g

Luís Reis

Luís "Dinga" Reis is a Portuguese Muay Thai kickboxer of Cape Verdian descent fighting out of Lisbon, Portugal for the Olival Gym. He is a K-1 MAX and It's Showtime regional champion who has won medals for Portugal at amateur level, his older brother José Reis is a respected kickboxer. After a successful amateur career where he had won a number of Iberian championships and several podium finishes at various W. A. K. O world and European championships, Luis made his K-1 debut in 2004. In a rather bizarre tournament appearance he made it to the semi finals at the MAX event in Lisbon as an injury replacement only to face his older brother José who showed little brotherly love by promptly stopped him in the second round. Luis had more success at the next regional MAX event across the border in Spain, stopping his two opponents before losing to home fighter Abrahan Roqueñi in the final. After his MAX appearances Luis joined the fledgling Thai & Kickbox SuperLeague in 2005 but had little success in his two matches with the promotion losing both by decision.

A return to K-1 MAX in 2006 resulted in a tournament victory in his hometown of Lisbon although the regional win would not mean a place at that year's K-1 MAX final. He encountered the same issue that year with the It's Showtime organization winning their 75MAX tournament in Portugal but failing to be invited to the final to be held in the Netherlands the following year. In 2009 he won another tournament in his home town, this time winning the World Kickboxing Network eight man K-1 rules tournament. On December 15, 2012, he lost to the eventual tournament winner Karim Ghajji on points in the semi-finals of the WKN 75 kg Full Contact European Grand Prix at Full Night 6 in Agde, France, he lost to Bakari Tounkara on points at FK-ONE in Paris, France on April 20, 2013.

Western forest robin

The western forest robin is a subspecies of the forest robin found at low levels in West African forests from Sierra Leone to Nigeria. It has been placed in the family Turdidae, but is now placed in Muscicapidae, it includes the other members in the genus Stiphrornis as subspecies, in which case the common name for the "combined species" is forest robin. The western forest robin can be separate from the other members of the genus by the combination of its deep orange throat and breast, white belly, olive upperparts, it appears to differ vocally from the other members in the genus, but a comprehensive study on this is lacking. When considered conspecific with the other members from its genus, S. erythrothorax is considered to be of least concern by IUCN. While not rated following the split into several species, it has been described as frequent to locally abundant, is therefore unlikely to qualify for a threatened category; the initial split into multiple species within this genus is based on a review from 1999 where it, based on the phylogenetic species concept, was argued that all recognized taxa should be considered monotypic species.

Of these, S. gabonensis and S. xanthogaster were considered subspecies of S. erythrothorax, whereas S. saghensis was described as an new species. The split was not followed in Handbook of the Birds of the World, where it was described as "perhaps premature". Comparably, the BirdLife Taxonomic Working Group recommended not following the split, as differences in plumages are small, genetic sampling considered incomplete, evidence for intergradation or parapatry is lacking. Another species from this complex, S. pyrrholaemus, was described as a new species in 2008. Based on mtDNA, it is placed within S. erythrothorax sensu lato, is only a species if at least some of the taxonomy recommended in 1999 is followed. The genetic divergence between S. pyrrholaemus and other members of the genus is comparable to that between some other related species

X Article

The X Article, formally titled The Sources of Soviet Conduct, was an article written by George F. Kennan under the pseudonym "Mr. X" and published in Foreign Affairs magazine in July 1947. Kennan, the Deputy Chief of Mission of the United States to the USSR from 1944 to 1946, advocated in the article a policy of containment of the Soviet Union and strong anti-communism. G. F. Kennan rejoined the U. S. Embassy in Moscow as Chargé d'Affaires in July 1945. Although he was critical of the Soviet system, the mood within the U. S. State Department was friendship towards the Soviets, because the Soviets were an important ally in the war against Nazi Germany. Kennan proposed a policy known as Containment. In February 1946, the United States Treasury asked the U. S. Embassy in Moscow why the Soviets were not supporting the newly created World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. In reply, Kennan wrote the Long Telegram outlining his views of the Soviets, it arrived in Washington on February 22, 1946.

Among its most-remembered parts was that while Soviet power was "impervious to the logic of reason", it was "highly sensitive to the logic of force". The preface to the Long Telegram includes the following comments: Answer to Dept's 284, Feb. 3,13 involves questions so intricate, so delicate, so strange to our form of thought, so important to analysis of our international environment that I cannot compress answers into single brief message without yielding to what I feel would be a dangerous degree of oversimplification. I hope, Dept will bear with me if I submit in answer to this question five parts... I apologize in advance for this burdening of telegraphic channel. Kennan described dealing with Soviet Communism as "undoubtedly greatest task our diplomacy has faced and greatest it will have to face". In the first two sections, he posited concepts that became the foundation of American Cold War policy: The Soviets perceived themselves at perpetual war with capitalism. According to Kennan, the Soviet Union did not see the possibility for long-term peaceful coexistence with the capitalist world.

The Soviets' ever-present aim was to advance the socialist cause. For the Soviets, capitalism was a menace to the ideals of socialism, capitalists could not be trusted or allowed to influence the Soviet people. Outright conflict was never considered a desirable avenue for the propagation of the Soviet cause, but their eyes and ears were always open for the opportunity to take advantage of "diseased tissue" anywhere in the world. In Section Five, Kennan exposited Soviet weaknesses and proposed U. S. strategy, stating that despite the great challenge, "my conviction that problem is within our power to solve—and that without recourse to any general military conflict". He argued that the Soviet Union would be sensitive to force, that the Soviets were weak compared to the united Western world, that the Soviets were vulnerable to internal instability, that Soviet propaganda was negative and destructive. Kennan advocated sound appraisal, public education, solutions of the internal problems of U. S. society, proposing for other nations a positive picture of the world the U.

S. would like to see, faith in the superiority of the Western way of life over the collective ideals of Soviet Communists. In July 1946, President Truman enlisted the services of one of his senior advisers, Clark Clifford, to prepare a report on Soviet relations that would provide detail on "Soviet disregard" for post-war agreements; the President frustrated by Soviet actions, claimed he wanted "to be ready to reveal to the whole world the full truth about the Russian failure to honor agreements". With the assistance of George Elsey, Clifford set out to write a report that would take the analysis of the Long Telegram and translate it into concrete policy recommendations; the pair solicited the input of senior officials in the Departments of State and Justice, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Central Intelligence Group, utilized the expertise of George Kennan and Charles Bohlen in writing their report. The final report, entitled American Relations with the Soviet Union, was presented to the President on September 24, 1946, it did not circulate beyond his desk.

In fact, President Truman ordered that all copies of the report be delivered to him because the report was of great value to him "but if it leaked, it would blow the roof off the White House...we'd have the most serious situation on our hands that has yet occurred in my Administration". The report would remain top secret and un-circulated until it appeared in Arthur Krock’s Memoirs in 1968; the report provided Truman with the background of wartime relations with the Soviet Union, insight into existing agreements, most important, detail on "Soviet violations" of agreements with the United States. It stressed the importance of a well-informed public because "only a well-informed public will support the stern policies which Soviet activities make imperative"; the first mention of the concept of "restraini

Colouz Uv Sound

Colouz Uv Sound was the only album by Simple E, released on October 11, 1994 through Fox Records. The album was produced by Tony! Toni! Toné! member D'wayne Wiggins, but Ali Shaheed Muhammad of A Tribe Called Quest and Mista Lawnge of Black Sheep produced a song each on the album. Colouz Uv Sound spawned a semi-successful single entitled "Play My Funk", her only entry on the Billboard Hot 100 where it peaked at 72; the album itself only reached No. 88 on the Billboard R&B chart. She was soon released from the label due to the poor record sales.
