John Sealy Townsend

Sir John Sealy Edward Townsend, FRS was an Irish mathematical physicist who conducted various studies concerning the electrical conduction of gases and directly measured the electrical charge. He was a Wykeham Professor of physics at Oxford University; the phenomenon of the electron avalanche was discovered by him, is known as the Townsend discharge. John Townsend was born at Galway in County Galway, son of Edward Townsend, a Professor of Civil Engineering at Queen's College Galway and Judith Townsend. In 1885, he entered Trinity College Dublin, was elected a Scholar of the College in 1888, came top of the class in mathematics with a BA in 1890, he became a Clerk Maxwell Scholar and entered Trinity College, where he became a research student at the same time as Ernest Rutherford. At the Cavendish laboratory, he studied under J. J. Thomson, he developed the "Townsend's collision theory". Townsend supplied important work to the electrical conductivity of gases; this work determined the elementary electrical charge with the droplet method.

This method was improved by Robert Andrews Millikan. In 1900, Townsend became a Wykeham Professor of Physics at Oxford. In 1901, he discovered the ionization of molecules by ion impact and the dependence of the mean free path on electrons of the energy. On 11 June 1903, he was elected to Fellow of the Royal Society, he was awarded the Hughes Medal in 1914. During World War I, he researched, at Woolwich, wireless methods for the Royal Naval Air Service. Townsend was a laboratory demonstrator. Bleaney recounts an occasion when Townsend gathered together all the demonstrators and proceeded to refute both quantum mechanics and relativity. Between the two world wars, Townsend led an effective small group of researchers Rhodes scholars, of whom some became distinguished physicists. However, by the 1930s he had become less effective, he was seen as a boring lecturer, a dogmatic supervisor, out of touch with the wider world of physics. As the 1930s went on, no German refugees sought refuge in his laboratory, while Lindemann, Dr Lee's professor of Physics, gained eight refugee physicists, some of whom gave his department an international reputation in the world of low temperature physics.

In the late 1930s, the University decided to build a new Clarendon Laboratory Building and looked at the relations between Oxford's two physics laboratories. There was a suggestion to convert the Wykeham chair into one for theoretical physics. In 1941, Townsend's career came to an unhappy end, he had refused to support the war effort by teaching service-men, the university appointed a visitorial board. This found Townsend guilty of misconduct and advised him that he would be dismissed unless he agreed to resign. Townsend, knighted in January 1941, resigned in September, subject to confidentiality. John Townsend spent his retirement in Oxford. Townsend married May Georgina from County Galway, they had two sons, his wife took an interest in politics, became a city councillor, was twice Mayor of Oxford.

Thompson started playing basketball when he was in elementary, but his game took off during his senior year in high school when he played in the Palarong Pambansa and was chosen for the Nike Elite Camp. According to him, he had no scholarship offers from top collegiate schools except for Perpetual Help. Thompson played college basketball at the University of Perpetual Help of the NCAA. In his rookie season, he was the Altas' sixth man, averaging 6.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.9 assists in 18.3 minutes per game. During his MVP year in 2014, he posted an impressive stat line of 26.5 PPG and 10.0 RPG, while leading the Altas to the Final Four. He was included in the Mythical 5 selection in that same season.

Despite dishing off triple-double performances for the Altas, he ended his college career in 2015 after his school bowed out of the Final Four contention. Thompson suited up for the Hapee Fresh Fighters in the PBA D-League, where he teamed up with fellow college standouts and future draft batchmates Troy Rosario, Baser Amer, Garvo Lanete and Chris Newsome. Behind his heroics, he helped the Fresh Fighters win its first PBA D-League title in 2015. Thompson was drafted fifth overall in the 2015 PBA draft by the Barangay Ginebra San Miguel. In his first game as a pro, he scored 5 points, 3 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals in 16 minutes of play in a 78-86 loss over the Purefoods Star Hotshots. Despite the fact that he only practiced with the team for less than a week and with the limited minutes he's given, his stellar play earned him praises from coach Tim Cone. In his third career game back on November 7, 2015, Thompson recorded 8 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals in just 14 minutes of playing time in a 93-92 win over the Alaska Aces.

On December 5, Thompson recorded a triple-double after putting up 9 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists in 102-94 win over the Blackwater Elite. In the semi-final of 2016 PBA Governors cup, he registered a triple double performance long after Johnny Abarientos era. In 2018 PBA Commissioner's Cup Finals, he was awarded the PBA Finals MVP. Thompson was part of the 12-man Sinag Pilipinas lineup that competed in the 2015 Southeast Asian Games and 2015 SEABA Championship, both held in Singapore, where they won gold medals in both occasions. Scottie Thompson is well-known for defensive versatility. On offense, his scoring output is not that high much, just averaging around 8 points per game in his career because of his role in the team. However, he focuses on making his teammates better by giving them accurate assists. With his play making abilities and skills, he averages around 5 assists per game in his career, he is well-known for his rebounding skills. At his height of 6'1, he is a great rebounder of his position and height.

He can outrebound a taller opponent. As of the end of the 2018-19 PBA Commissioners' Cup, he has an astounding average of 7.6 rebounds per game. On defense, he is a well-known versatile perimeter defender, he excels at forcing turnovers against opponents. With that, he is compared to Russell Westbrook of the NBA because of their similar playing style.

Love on a Two-Way Street

"Love on a Two-Way Street" is a soul ballad written by Sylvia Robinson and Bert Keyes in 1968. The song was recorded by Lezli Valentine, an artist signed to All Platinum, the record label that Sylvia Robinson co-owned with her husband, Joe; the song was recorded by The Moments, an R&B vocal group signed to All Platinum subsidiary Stang Records, as filler for their 1968 album Not on the Outside, But on the Inside, Strong!. Sylvia and Joe decided to release the song as a single in March 1970 and it went on to become one of the biggest R&B hits of that year, spending five weeks at number one on Billboard's Soul Singles chart and reaching number three on the Hot 100 chart. Billboard ranked the record as the No. 25 song of 1970. It was certified gold by the RIAA for sales of one million copies. Willie and The Mighty Magnificents provided most of the musical backing on the song and Bert Keyes created the string arrangement, overdubbed onto the track while playing piano on the recording session. According to the song's original vocalist, Lezli Valentine, she was a third contributor to the song writing most of the song's lyrics: Sylvia came into the office on the morning Two Way Street was created and said that she had a dream but that the only thing she remembered was "Love on a Two-way Street, Lost on a lonely Highway."--We went into Bert's office...

Sylvia asked Bert to play what he felt... I, Lezli Valentine, began to write the story line... "True love will never die, so I've been told but now I must cry, it is goodbye, I know... With music playing his lips were saying honey I love you"... Sylvia wrote "he held me in desperation, I thought it was a revelation and he walked out"... I, Lezli Valentine wrote..."how could I be so blind to give of love the first time, to be fooled is a hurting thing"... Sylvia wrote "to be loved and fooled is a crying shame"... Lezli Valentine wrote "while I bear the blame, as he laughs my name", the rest was completed, I recorded it; the original application was altered without my knowledge Joseph Robinson, Sr. knew this, as did Ebert Mahon... AKA Bert Keyes and several recording artists in the Soul Sound Studios at the time! This was resulted in hospitalizations; the Moments' version of the song has been sampled by The AB's formally known as Asamov in 2005 for the song "Supa Dynamite", by Caribou in the track "Subotnick" from 2005's The Milk of Human Kindness, by Jay-Z and Alicia Keys' single "Empire State of Mind" in 2009.

In 1981, 14-year-old artist Stacy Lattisaw covered "Love on a Two-Way Street." It was the lead single from her With You LP. The song peaked at number two R&B, number 19 Adult Contemporary, number 26 on the Hot 100; this version peaked at number 23 on the Cash Box Top 100 during August of that year. The song was her second U. S. Top 40 hit. Gloria Estefan included her version on her 1994 album, Hold Thrill Me, Kiss Me. Brenda K. Starr covered the song on Temptation; the song was covered by Boz Scaggs on his 2013 album, Memphis.
