SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Yeovil

Yeovil is a town and civil parish in the district of South Somerset, with a population of 45,000. It is close to Somerset's southern border with Dorset, 130 miles from London, 40 miles south of Bristol, 6 miles from Sherborne and 30 miles from Taunton; the aircraft and defence industries that developed in the 20th century made it a target for bombing in the Second World War. They are still major employers. Yeovil Country Park, which includes Ninesprings, is one of several open spaces with educational and sporting facilities. Religious sites include the 14th-century Church of St John the Baptist; the town has two railway stations. Archaeological surveys of the town have yielded Palaeolithic burial and settlement sites to the south of the modern town in Hendford, where a Bronze Age golden torc was found. Yeovil is on the main Roman road from Dorchester to the Fosse Way at Ilchester; the route of the old road is aligned with the A37 from Dorchester, Hendford Hill, across the Westland site, to Larkhill Road and Vagg Lane, rejoining the A37 at the Halfway House pub in the Ilchester Road.

The Westland site has evidence of a small Roman town. There were several Roman villas in the area. Finds have been made at West Coker and Lufton; the name Yeovil was first mentioned in a Saxon charter dated 880 as Gifle. It derives from an earlier name of the River Yeo; the estate was bequeathed in the will of King Alfred the Great to his youngest son Aethelweard. It was recorded in the Domesday Book as a thriving market community; the parish of Yeovil was part of the Stone Hundred. After the Norman Conquest, the manor known as Hendford, was granted to the Count of Eu and his tenant Hugh Maltravers, whose descendants became Earls of Arundel and held the lordship until 1561. In 1205 it was granted a charter by King John. By the 14th century, the town had gained the right to elect a portreeve; the Black Death exacted a heavy toll, killing half the population. In 1499 a major fire destroyed many of the thatched roofed buildings in the town. Yeovil suffered further fires, in 1620 and again in 1643. After the dissolution of the monasteries the lord of the manor was the family of John Horsey of Clifton Maybank from 1538 to 1610 and by the Phelips family until 1846 when it passed to the Harbins of Newton Surmaville.

Babylon Hill across the River Yeo to the south east of the town was the site of a minor skirmish, the Battle of Babylon Hill, during the English Civil War, which resulted in the Earl of Bedford's Roundheads forcing back Sir Ralph Hopton's Cavaliers to Sherborne. In the 1800s Yeovil was the population expanded rapidly. In the mid-19th century it became connected to the rest of Britain by a complex of railway lines that produced competition between the 7 ft broad gauge lines of the Great Western Railway and the 4 ft 8 1⁄2 in standard gauge lines of the London and South Western Railway. In 1853 the Great Western Railway line was opened between Yeovil; the first railway in the town was a branch line from the Bristol and Exeter Railway near Taunton to a terminus at Hendford on the western side of the town, which opened on 1 October 1853. As an associated company of the GWR, this was a broad gauge line; the GWR itself opened Yeovil Pen Mill railway station on the east side of the town as part of its route from London on 1 September 1856, the original line from Taunton was connected to this.

The LSWR route from London reached Hendford on 1 June 1860 but a month the town was by-passed by the extension of the LSWR to Exeter. A new station at Yeovil Junction was provided south of the town from where passengers could catch a connecting service to Hendford. On 1 June 1861 passenger trains were withdrawn from Hendford and transferred to a new, more central, Yeovil Town railway station. In 1854, the town had its first mayor. In the early 20th century Yeovil had around 11,000 inhabitants and was dominated by the defence industry, making it a target of German raids during World War II; the worst of the bombing was in 1940 and continued until 1942. During that time 107 high explosive bombs fell on the town. 49 people died, 68 houses were destroyed and 2,377 damaged. Industrial businesses developed in the area around the Hendford railway goods station to such a degree that a small Hendford Halt was opened on 2 May 1932 for passengers travelling to and from this district, but the growth of road transport and a desire to rationalise the rail network led to half of the railway stations in Yeovil being closed in 1964.

First to go was Hendford Halt, closed on 15 June along with the line to Taunton Yeovil Town closed on 2 October. Long-distance trains from Pen Mill had been withdrawn on 11 September 1961, leaving only Yeovil Junction with a service to London, but the service between there and Pen Mill, the two remaining stations, was withdrawn from 5 May 1968; as a former centre of Britain's leather industry, the town is post-industrial in character. Journalist John Harris, for instance, described the towns Taunton and Bridgwater as a "post-industrial, hardscrabble place that contain 19 of the council wards in the 20% of English areas classed as the most deprived." Designated as Yeovil Municipal Borough in 1854, the town continued to lend its name to the area with the creation of the local government district of Yeovil on 1 April 1974, with the merging several neighbouring rural and urban districts, today known as South Somerset. Some suburbs fall within the civil parish

Kalahari Augrabies Extreme Marathon

The Kalahari Augrabies Extreme Marathon is a self-sufficient run over seven days, covering an approximate distance of 250 km. The event takes place in the Kalahari Desert in the proximity of the Augrabies Falls on the Orange River; the route traverses the Augrabies Falls National Park, private game parks including Khamkirri and Dabaras and many private farmlands. Due to issues the private landowners have had with the organisers the 2014 event took place within the borders of the AFNP and on the Southern side; this contrasting environment with average day temperatures reaching in excess of 40 °C in the summer months and dropping to below 5 °C at night during the winter, presents a daunting challenge to the extreme athlete and determined adventurer alike. Known as the'Big Daddy' in the South African running circles, the Kalahari Augrabies Extreme Marathon is event organised by Extreme Marathons, has its place on the International Calendar of similar trail events. Participants run in the footsteps of the ancient Bushmen, through the fertile vineyards of the Orange River Valley, across rocky outcrops and into the desolate Great Kalahari Desert.

Although the event is advertised as a 250 km, race director Estienne Arndt changes the route every year, the distance depends on the terrain. The route is only disclosed to the participants at registration, the day before the start of the event; the organisers supply the participants with overnight camps, professional medical backup, sports physios, check points at every 8–10 km, an experienced crew who look after the participants needs.

Heather Hill (politician)

Heather Hill is an Australian former politician. Heather Rafe was born in 1960 in London. In 1971 her family moved to Australia, arriving in Queensland on 6 October of that year, she attended school in Brisbane. In January 1981, Heather Rafe married Ken Hill, an Australian citizen, with whom she would have two children and Hayley. Hill was the manager of the Family Resource Centre in Ipswich for six years from 1991; the Liberal-National coalition government withdrew funding from the centre in 1997, spurring Hill to become involved with Pauline Hanson's One Nation Party. Hill intended to do so she had to be an Australian citizen, she applied for Australian citizenship in January 1998, granted on 20 January. She attended a citizenship ceremony where she was presented with a certificate after reciting the pledge of loyalty to Australia, she applied for an Australian passport. However, she needed to travel to New Zealand for family reasons on 4 February, because her Australian passport had not arrived by she used her British passport.

On 13 June 1998 Hill stood as the One Nation candidate for the Legislative Assembly of Queensland in the 1998 Queensland election, in the seat of Ipswich. She lost to Labor candidate David Hamill; when the 1998 federal election was announced for 3 October, Hill was encouraged by Hanson to stand as the One Nation candidate for the House of Representatives in the Division of Oxley, but she declined. Instead she stood for the Senate in Queensland. Hill was the first of five One Nation candidates on the ballot paper, she received 295,903 votes, enough to fill one quota. Accordingly, she was declared a Senator-elect, with her term due to commence on 1 July 1999. After the election, on 18 November 1998, concerns were raised about Hill's citizenship status, she still retained her United Kingdom citizenship, had attained dual citizenship when her Australian citizenship was granted. The Section 44 of the Constitution of Australia prevents anyone, a citizen of a "foreign power" from being elected to the Parliament of Australia, there were concerns that Hill's dual citizenship could contravene this provision.

On 19 November she contacted the High Commission of the United Kingdom in Brisbane, arranged to renounce her United Kingdom citizenship. However, on 30 November her election was challenged on the basis of her dual citizenship. On 23 June 1999 the High Court of Australia, sitting in its capacity as the Court of Disputed Returns, decided in Sue v Hill, that Hill's election was invalid because, at the time of her election, she was still a citizen of the United Kingdom; the case clarified for the first time that the United Kingdom had become a power foreign to Australia. Len Harris, One Nation's number two candidate on the Senate ballot, was appointed in Hill's place, taking up his seat on 2 July 1999. Hill became Harris's advisor, having been appointed to One Nation's national executive. However, Hill fell out with the party after a dispute about its finances, having expressed her concern that A$2.4 million in funding was unaccounted for in financial documents. When the Queensland branch of the party defected from the national body, forming One Nation Queensland, Hill joined them, was sacked by Harris on 13 December 1999.

Calvary Chapel

Calvary Chapel, an association of evangelicalChristian churches, maintains a number of radio stations around the world and operates many local Calvary Chapel Bible College programs. It presents itself as a "fellowship of churches" in contrast to a denomination, includes over one thousand congregations worldwide. Churches that affiliate with Calvary Chapel need not do so. Beginning in 1965 in Southern California, this fellowship of churches grew out of Chuck Smith's Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa. Doctrinally, Calvary Chapel is evangelical and pretribulationist, maintains the principle of sola scriptura. Chuck Smith's "Calvary Chapel Distinctives" summarize the tenets for which Calvary Chapel stands. Calvary Chapels place great importance on the practice of expository teaching, a "verse by verse, chapter by chapter, book by book" approach to teaching the Bible. Calvary Chapels operate under a senior pastor-led system of church government, sometimes referred to as the "Moses" model. In November 2016, Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa left the Calvary Chapel Association and formed the Calvary Chapel Global Network.

The Global Network continues to count the association's 1,700 churches as members unless they opt out. As of September 2017 1,800 churches operated with locations in all 50 states across the United States of America, others internationally. While Chuck Smith was still a member of the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel, he reported a prophecy came to him in which the Lord said to him that He was changing his name, his new name would mean "Shepherd" because the Lord was going to make him the shepherd of many flocks and the church would not be large enough to hold all of the people who would be flocking to hear the Word of God. In December 1965, Smith became the pastor of a 25-person evangelical congregation. In 1968, the church broke away from the International Church of the Foursquare Gospel in Santa Ana, California. Before Smith became their pastor, twelve of the 25 members attended a prayer meeting about whether or not to close their church: they reported that "the Holy Spirit spoke to them through prophecy" and told them that Smith would become their pastor, that he would want to elevate the platform area, that God would bless the church, that it would go on the radio, that the church would become overcrowded, that he would become known throughout the world.

An identical prophecy was recorded in Smith's book Harvest where the prophecy was delivered to 16 discouraged people ready to quit. In 1969, Calvary Chapel became a hub in what became known as the Jesus movement when Smith's daughter introduced him to her boyfriend John Higgins Jr. a former hippie who had become a Christian, who went on to head the largest Jesus Freak movement in history, the Shiloh Youth Revival Centers. John Higgins introduced Smith to Lonnie Frisbee, the "hippie evangelist" who became a key figure in the growth of both the Jesus Movement and in Calvary Chapel. Frisbee moved into Smith's home, he would minister to the other hippies and counter-culture youth on the beaches. At night he would bring home new converts and soon Smith's house was full. Frisbee was put in charge of a new rental home for the growing crowd of Christian hippies and he named the commune House of Miracles; as Calvary Chapel grew "explosively", a tent was erected while a new building was under construction.

Among the converts were musicians who now were writing music for praise and worship. This became the genesis for Jesus music and Christian rock concerts. Maranatha! Music was formed to publish and promote the music; the services resembled rock concerts more than any worship services of the time. Frisbee was featured in national television news reports and magazines with images of him baptizing hundreds in the Pacific Ocean at a time; the network of House of Miracles communes/crash pad/coffee houses began doing outreach concerts with Smith or Frisbee preaching, Frisbee calling forth the Holy Spirit and the newly forming bands playing the music. By the early 1970s Calvary Chapel was home to ten or more musical groups that were representative of the Jesus people movement. In 1982, John Wimber, a Calvary Chapel pastor, the Calvary Chapel leadership mutually agreed to part ways. Tension had been mounting over Wimber's emphasis on spiritual manifestations leading Wimber to withdraw from Calvary Chapel and affiliate with a network of churches that would become the Association of Vineyard Churches.

On October 3, 2013, Pastor Smith died after a long battle with lung cancer. Smith remained as the senior pastor at Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa during his battle with cancer, to include preaching at three services the Sunday before his death. Affiliates of Calvary Chapel believe in the fundamental doctrines of evangelical Christianity, which include the inerrancy of the Bible and the Trinity. Within evangelical Christianity, they say that they stand in the "middle ground between fundamentalism and Pentecostalism in modern Protestant theology". While they share with fundamentalism a belief in the inerrancy of the Bible, unlike fundamentalists, they accept spiritual gifts. However, they feel. According to Calvary Chapel literature, the association strives to "strik a balance between extremes" when it comes to controversial theological issues such as Calvinism's and Arminianism's conflicting views on salvation. Calvary Chapels hold the following views on the five points of Calvinism: Regarding total depravity, Calvary Chapel affirms that "apart from God's grace, no one can be saved," and that "mankind is fallen and lost in sin."

Regarding unconditional election, Calvary Chap
