Eton, Queensland

Eton is a town and a locality in the Mackay Region, Australia. The northern part of the locality is flat land, predominantly used as sugarcane plantations; the town is in this area. In the central part of the locality the land becomes hilly and is used for grazing cattle; the southern part of the locality is mountainous and is undeveloped. In the south of the locality is the Hogan's Pocket Landfill, a waste disposal site developed in 2006 by Mackay Regional Council; the landfill gas generated from the site are captured and, although burned off, may be used for electricity generation in the future. The Peak Downs Highway traverses the locality from south to north-east. State Route 5 passes through from north-west to south-east. A cane tramway passes through the northern part of the locality to deliver the harvested sugarcane to local sugar mills. Tenders were called for the construction of Eton State School in August 1882; the school opened in 20 August 1883. Eton State School opened on 20 August 1883 and is a primary school for boys and girls operated by the Queensland Government at 10 Prospect Street.

In 2016, the school had an enrolment of 50 with 7 non-teaching staff. The school celebrated its centenary in 1983; the Eton / Eton North branch of the Queensland Country Women's Association meets at the QCWA Hall at 7 Mill Street, North Eton.

Geoffrey Keezer

Geoffrey Keezer is an American jazz pianist. Keezer was playing in jazz clubs as a teenager, playing piano for Art Blakey at age 18 and touring with Joshua Redman, Benny Golson and Ray Brown in his 20s, he has toured with David Sanborn, Chris Botti, Joe Locke and Christian McBride and worked with vocalist Denise Donatelli, receiving Grammy Award nominations, releasing albums influenced by Hawaiian and Afro-Peruvian folk traditions. His 2009 album Áurea was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Latin Jazz Album. In 2013 Keezer released his first solo piano album in Heart of the Piano. In 1989, at age 18, Keezer joined Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers, becoming the last pianist to join the band, he composed and arranged original music for the group, with which he remained until Blakey's death in 1990.

Other albums include Falling Up with Hawaiian slack key guitarist Keola Beamer. In 2010, Keezer was nominated for his second Grammy Award, for Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist, for the track "Don't Explain" on Denise Donatelli's When Lights Are Low.

From 2012 to 2013, Keezer played concerts in Hawaii and across North America as part of the "Malama Ko Aloha" tour featuring Hawaiian slack-key guitarist Keola Beamer and native American flute player R. Carlos Nakai. Recordings from this period include Mill Creek Road. Keezer appeared on German television in 1989 with Art Blakey. In 1995, he appeared on NBC's Today Show as part of the Terence Blanchard Quintet. In the late 1990s, he played on German and Swiss TV as a member of the Ray Brown Trio. In 2000, he joined Ingrid Jensen on BET's Jazz Central Station. Keezer appeared on Japan's NHK in 2005 during their coverage of that year's Tokyo Jazz Festival. In 2012, Keezer played on ABC's Good Morning America and The View in a band with Chris Botti and country star Vince Gill. Keezer has taught master classes at the Brubeck Institute, the Royal Academy of Music, the Thel


In Western Christianity, the Transitus refers to "the time of passage through death to life". The Christian theologian German Martinez writes that: The idea of death in the Latin transitus represents a unique Christian terminology linked to the paschal mystery, it consecrates the passage of the dying to eternal life. Offering the sacrifice of his or her personal life, the believer shares in the paschal transitus of Christ himself. With reference to Christian religious orders, in the Lukan liturgy for the Transitus, lessons from Psalm 23, Romans 1:4-8, 1 Peter 1:3 are read. Among Franciscans, on October 3, the Transitus of Saint Francis of Assisi is commemorated. However, among Franciscans, there is not a single liturgy for the Transitus and "therefore many expressions have developed" for this service.

Planck particle

A Planck particle, named after physicist Max Planck, is a hypothetical particle defined as a tiny black hole whose Compton wavelength is equal to its Schwarzschild radius. Its mass is thus the Planck mass, its Compton wavelength and Schwarzschild radius are about the Planck length. Planck particles are sometimes used as an exercise to define the Planck mass and Planck length, they play a role in some models of the evolution of the universe during the Planck epoch. Compared to a proton, for example, the Planck particle would be small and massive; the Planck particle would have a fleeting existence, evaporating due to Hawking radiation after 5×10−39 seconds. While opinions vary as to its proper definition, the most common definition of a Planck particle is a particle whose Compton wavelength is equal to its Schwarzschild radius; this sets the relationship: λ = h m c = 2 G m c 2 Thus making the mass of such a particle: m = h c 2 G This mass will be π times larger than the Planck mass, making a Planck particle 1.772 times more massive than the Planck unit mass.

Its radius will be the Compton wavelength: r = h m c = 2 G h c 3 The Planck length ℓP is defined as ℓ P = r 2 π = ℏ G c 3 Using the above derivations we can substitute the universal constants h, G, c, determine physical values for the particle's mass and radius. Assuming this radius represents a sphere of uniform density, we can further determine the particle's volume and density. Micro black hole Planck units Max Planck Black hole electron Sachs, R..
