Alessandro Algardi

Alessandro Algardi (født 31. juli 1598 i Bologna, Italia, død 10. juni 1654 i Roma) var en italiensk billedhugger fra høybarokken, som nesten utelukkende var aktiv i Roma, hvor han senere i livet var Gian Lorenzo Berninis store rival.

Algardi var født i Bologna, hvor han i en ung alder var lærling i arbeidsverkstedet til Agostino Carracci. Likevel ledet hans begavelse for skulptur til å arbeide for Giulio Cesare Conventi (1577–1640), en kunstner med beskjedent talent. Da han var 20, fikk han oppdrag fra Ferdinando I, greve av Mantova, og han var også ansatt av lokale gullsmeder for figurative utforminger. Etter et kort oppholdt i Venezia, dro han til Roma i 1625 med en introduksjon fra greven i Mantova til pave Gregorius XVs nevø, Ludovico Cardinal Ludovisi, som ansatte ham for en tid i restaureringen av antikke statuer

Fremdrevet av beskyttelse fra Borghese- og Barberini-familien, fikk Gian Lorenzo Bernini og hans arbeidsverksted de fleste av de store italienske skulpturelle oppdrag. I nærmere et tiår, strebet Algardi mot anerkjennelse. I roma ble han hjulpet av venner som innbefattet Pietro da Cortona og hans bologneservenn Domenichino. Hans tidlige italienske oppdrag innbefattet terrakotta- og noen marmorportrettbyster, mens han tjente til opphold med mindre verker som krusifikser.

Algardis første store oppdrag kom i 1634, da kardinal Ubaldini (Medici) gav ham i oppdrag å lage et begravelsesmonument for hans grandonkel, pave Leo XI, den tredje av Medici-pavene, som hadde regjert i mindre enn en måned i 1605. Monumentet ble påbegynt i 1640, og fullført innen 1644.

Fra 1646 til 1653 arbeidet Algardi på relieffet Pave Leo I fordriver Attila fra Roma. Med sin gradvise overgang fra de frittstående figurene i forgrunnen til de lave relieffene i bakgrunnen skulle dette relieffet komme til å utøve en stor innflytelse på senere tiders teknikk.

The Miracle of Peckham

The Miracle of Peckham“ is an episode of the BBC sitcom, Only Fools and Horses. It was the second episode of series 5, and was first broadcast on 7 September 1986. In the episode, Del witnesses a miracle at his local church, which creates a media frenzy.

While Rodney worries about what a muscular man named Biffo is going to do to him for drunkenly stealing his trumpet the previous night (to make matters worse, Albert has subsequently thrown the trumpet down the rubbish chute), Del Boy goes to church to seek forgiveness for some stolen goods he has recently purchased. The parish priest explains to Del how the local hospice is facing closure. They then witness an apparent miracle: a statue of the Virgin Mary on the altar appears to be weeping. Del instantly senses an opportunity to make money and save the hospice, and tells Rodney to alert the media. Within days, reporters and cameramen from all over the world are in Peckham to cover the story. Del presents himself as a modern-day prophet, predicting when the statue will weep again.

After several more miracles, enough money is raised to save the local hospice. It then suddenly dawns on the priest that the miracles always occur when it is raining. Upon inspecting the church’s roof, he finds that all of the lead tiles are missing. Only then does it emerge that those lead tiles were the stolen goods Del had sought forgiveness for, but he points out that the money raised from the resulting „miracle“ did save the local hospice. The priest, much to Del’s surprise, blesses him for doing it.

As they exit the church, Del and Rodney shake hands with the many reporters and cameramen, until Rodney finds out that he is shaking the hand of Biffo, who demands to know where his trumpet is. Rodney tries talking his way out of it, but then runs away with Biffo giving chase. Del senses an opportunity to make some money from this, and offers the nearby reporters and cameramen a chance to film some „genuine inner city violence“.

Note: In the VHS/DVD versions, Carl Orff’s „O Fortuna“ is replaced by a similar sounding piece of music.

Rigsbankdaler

Der Rigsbankdaler (zeitgenössisch deutsch Reichsbankthaler [RBTh.]) war in einer kurzen Phase der dänischen Währungsgeschichte von 1813 bis 1854 die Währungseinheit im dänischen Gesamtstaat. Während dieser Zeit standen die Herzogtümer Schleswig und Holstein sowie Norwegen und Island unter Oberhoheit des Königs von Dänemark. Der Rigsbankdaler wurde 1854 vom „Rigsdaler R.M.“ (für dän. Rigsmønt, deutsch Reichswährung) abgelöst.

Vom Spätmittelalter bis in das 19. Jahrhundert ist die schleswig-holsteinische Geschichte von den konkurrierenden Machtinteressen eines deutschstämmigen Adels und der dänischen Krone geprägt. Nach dem Vertrag von Ripen regierte der dänische König beide Landesteile nicht als König von Dänemark, sondern das Herzogtum Schleswig (königlich-dänisches Lehen) und die Reichslehen Holstein und Storman des Heiligen Römischen Reichs in Personalunion. Als bedeutender Machtfaktor neben der dänischen Krone bildete sich das Teil-Herzogtum Schleswig-Holstein-Gottorf heraus. Nachdem Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts der russische Zarentitel an das Haus Holstein-Gottorf gefallen war, bestimmte der Vertrag von Zarskoje Selo im Jahre 1773, dass bedeutende, bislang nicht von Kopenhagen aus regierte Teile des Gesamtherzogtums unter die direkte Herrschaft des dänischen Königs fallen sollten. Nach einigen kleinen Gebietskonsolidierungen stand das Gebiet des heutigen Schleswig-Holsteins somit an der Wende zum 19. Jahrhundert mit Ausnahme des Fürstentums Lübeck, der Hansestadt Lübeck und des Herzogtums Sachsen-Lauenburg unter dänischer Verwaltung.

Die Hansestädte Lübeck und Hamburg hatten 1622 einen Münzvertrag beschlossen, dem sich die umliegenden Gebiete anschlossen. Im Vertrag von Ripen hatte der dänische König zugesagt, in den Herzogtümern Geld der gleichen Art umlaufen zu lassen, wie in den Hansestädten. Der Reichstaler sollte nach dem Vertrag statt in 32 in 48 Schillinge eingeteilt werden. Da 16 Schillinge eine (Lübsche) Mark ergaben, galt fortan der Taler 3 Mark. 1718 führten Lübeck und Hamburg das neue Courant-Geld ein. Der zugehörige Couranttaler wurde wieder in 48 Schillinge eingeteilt (Schillinge Courant). Zur Unterscheidung wurden Münzen, die nach dem alten Reichsmünzfuß geprägt waren, nun Speciesthaler oder kurz Species genannt. Da der Münzfuß der Couranttaler im Verhältnis 4:5 verschlechtert wurde, entsprach ein Speciestaler 1 ¼ Couranttaler und 60 Schillingen Courant.

Im bereits länger königlich-dänischen Altona/Elbe war 1771 eine bis 1863 arbeitende königliche Münze errichtet worden. Die Münze prägte zunächst Speciestaler und Kleinmünzen mit dem Bildnis und den Initialen der dänischen Könige. Im schleswig-holsteinischen Münzsystem des 17. Jahrhunderts galt wie in Hamburg und Lübeck zunächst der Reichs- = Speciestaler nach dem 9 ¼-Taler-Münzfuß. Im Februar 1788 erhielten die Herzogtümer Schleswig und Holstein, die Herrschaft Pinneberg und die Grafschaft Rantzau nach dem Muster der Hansestädte eine eigene neue Silberwährung in Kuranttalern. Ein Taler schleswig-holsteinisch Courant entsprach genau einem der hanseatischen Kuranttaler und wie diese 4/5 eines Speciestalers. Der Taler schleswig-holsteinisch Courant war in 3 Mark Courant zu je 16 Schillingen schleswig-holsteinisch Courant eingeteilt. Es wurden von der königlichen Münze in Altona jedoch auch weiterhin Speciestaler geprägt. Von 1800 bis 1808 geprägte Speciestaler hatten weiterhin das dem alten Reichstaler entsprechende Feingewicht von 25,282 g Silber.

1788 wurde die Schleswig-Holsteinische Speciesbank in Altona gegründet. Der Gründung der Bank wie der Einführung des neuen Geldes waren seit Mitte des 18. Jahrhunderts sich bei der dänischen Kurantbank abzeichnende Schwierigkeiten vorangegangen, ausgegebene Banknoten zum Nennwert in vollwertige Silbermünzen umzutauschen (siehe Geschichte der Dänischen Krone). Die Schleswig-Holsteinische Speciesbank nahm Bareinlagen an, sollte kleine Kredite geben und eigene Banknoten ausgeben. Die Herzogtümer waren so zunächst von den finanziellen Schwierigkeiten des dänischen Gesamtstaats entkoppelt, da die von der dänischen Kurantbank ausgegebenen Banknoten hier kein gesetzliches Zahlungsmittel waren.

Dänemark litt zu Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts unter einer durch die Napoleonischen Kriege ausgelösten Wirtschaftskrise sowie insbesondere unter einem während der Herrschaft Napoleons verlorenen Krieg gegen England. Die offizielle dänische Währung der Zeit war der Rigsdaler, der als Speciestaler in 14 lötigem Silber (Feingehalt 875/1000) geprägt wurde.

Die dänische Regierung gab ab 1806 über die dänische Kurantbank zur Finanzierung ihrer Ausgaben in großem Umfang Banknoten heraus, die auf Rigsdaler Courant lauteten. Es kam zu einer starken Inflation und schließlich am 5. Januar 1813 zum faktischen Staatsbankrott.

Die neu gegründete dänische Nationalbank (Rigsbank) gab eine neue Währung heraus, den Rigsbankdaler. Die Rigsdaler-Banknoten wurden im Verhältnis 6:1 auf Rigsbankdaler-Banknoten umgestellt. Die von der Schleswig-Holsteinischen Speciesbank herausgegebenen Banknoten in Höhe von insgesamt weniger als einer Million Speciestalern wurden von der Rigsbank zur Hälfte in Silber ausgezahlt, zur Hälfte durch dänische Staatsanleihen ersetzt.

Um die Funktion der Rigsbankdaler-Banknoten als alleiniges Zahlungsmittel durchzusetzen, wurden die privaten dänischen Zettelbanken sowie die Schleswig-Holsteinische Speciesbank aufgehoben. Der Wert von Papiergeld der neuen Währung erreichte im September 1813 mit 9 % sein Minumum und fluktuierte in den kommenden Jahren stark.

Der Rigsbankdaler wurde zunächst nur als Rechnungsmünze und als Denomination der Banknoten genutzt, da der dänische Staat kaum über Münzsilber verfügte. Erst 1839 wurden auch Rigsbankdaler in Specie geprägt (siehe nächster Abschnitt). Voraussetzung war eine restriktive Finanz- und Währungspolitik, die die ausstehenden Banknoten langsam einzog sowie das in den 1830er Jahren einsetzende starke Wirtschaftswachstum. Die Prägung der ersten Rigsbankdaler markiert den Zeitpunkt, als wieder eine Kursparität zwischen Banknoten und geprägten Speciestalern erreicht wurde. Auf Rigsbankdaler lautende Banknoten wurden damals wieder zur Einlösung zum Nennwert in Silber von der dänischen Nationalbank angenommen. Diese Konvertibilität war eine Voraussetzung für die internationale Konkurrenzfähigkeit der dänischen Währung und damit des dänischen Finanzplatzes gegenüber Hamburg und der Mark Banco der Hamburger Bank.

Der Rigsbankdaler wurde im 18 ½-Talerfuß geprägt und unterteilt in 96 Rigsbankskilling. Durch die 1:2-Ähnlichkeit der Münzfüße zwischen altem Speciesdaler und zwei vollwertig in Silber ausgeprägte Rigsbankdaler ergab ein Rigsbankdaler 30 Schilling schleswig-holsteinisch Kurant.

Ohne Änderungen der Wertigkeit ließ der dänische König Friedrich VII. 1854 die Währung in Rigsdaler R.M. (für Rigsmønt) umbenennen, die Rigsbankskillinge in Skillinge R.M.

Rigsbankdaler mit zusätzlicher Wertangabe als 30 Schilling schleswig-holsteinisch Kurant wurden von 1842 bis 1848 von König Christian VIII. in Kopenhagen und Altona geprägt, sowie 1849 und 1851 von Friedrich VII. in Kopenhagen. Wie bei den schleswig-holsteinischen Speciestalern lag der Feingehalt bei 875 Promille Silber. Das Rauhgewicht lag bei 14,447 g, das Feingewicht bei 12,640 g.

An Kleinmünzen wurden geprägt:

Belfast Giants

White, red & teal

The Belfast Giants are an ice hockey team from Belfast, Northern Ireland that compete in the Elite Ice Hockey League. Home games are played at the 7,200-capacity SSE Arena Belfast (formerly the Odyssey Arena).

Currently the Belfast Giants are sponsored by Stena Line and are known as ‚The Stena Line Belfast Giants‘. The previous major sponsors were Aer Lingus, LBM, Coors Fine Light Beer and Harp Lager who sponsored the Belfast Giants in sequence since their inception.

Initially members of the now defunct Superleague, the Giants won the championship in 2001–02 and were play-off champions in 2002–03. With the Superleague’s demise, there were concerns that the Giants would not survive because of major financial problems which had developed. Running up debts of £600,000 and facing the threat of liquidation creditors voted to accept 20p in the pound allowing the club to continue. One company was believed to be owed nearly £65,000.

However, with the creation of the new Elite Ice Hockey League (EIHL) for the 2003–04 season, the Giants survived. The Giants finished 4th in the league’s first season, but failed to reach the post-season play-offs..

The Giants finished runners up in the 2004–05 season behind the Coventry Blaze but were winners of the Cross-over League Cup, which was played with teams from the BNL.

In 2005, The Giants unveiled NHL All-Star and Olympic Gold Medal winner, Theo Fleury who made his debut against the Edinburgh Capitals. The Giants won 11–2, with Fleury scoring a hat-trick. With 4 additional assists and a fight, he was named man of the match.

Besides Fleury, several other players who previously played in the NHL have played for the Giants; Paul Kruse, Jason Ruff, Paxton Schulte, and Jason Bowen, Bowen and Kruse having played almost 600 games between them. Kevin Westgarth is the latest incumbent from the NHL to don the Giants jersey, arriving from the Calgary Flames after several seasons in North America’s top league.

With an average attendance of around 4,744, the Giants are one of ten Elite league ice hockey squads in the UK. They are the 2nd best supported team in the UK and 67th in Europe.

Sectarianism had long been seen as a significant problem in some sports in Northern Ireland. When the club was established, the Belfast Giants were keen that the club not attach itself to a particular faith or community, instead wanting to represent Belfast as a whole. A number of policies were subsequently introduced to try to ensure this. Particular clothing (such as association football replica shirts), which might have displayed a person’s political or religious affiliation, were banned and flags were not permitted to be brought into the arena. The national anthem of the United Kingdom, traditionally played before games at other arenas in the Elite League, is not played before Giants games. These policies have been successful and the Giants have quickly built a large and enthusiastic fanbase who did not have to fear the sectarianism that marred other sports in Northern Ireland.

Track gauge in Italy

Historically, Italy had two unusual dominant track gauges which were legally defined. The gauge of 1,445 mm (4 ft 8 78 in) was used for the national Italian rail network and was very similar to the 1,435 mm (4 ft 8 12 in) standard gauge. Since the 1930s the 1,435 mm gauge was adopted and gradually replaced the 1,445 mm track gauge. A few isolated 1,445 mm gauge networks survive.

The other gauge, a narrow gauge, was defined at 950 mm (3 ft 1 38 in) and is very similar to 1,000 mm (3 ft 3 38 in) or metre gauge and was thus called „Italian metre gauge“.

Italian law defined its track gauges from the centres of each rail, rather than the inside edges of the rails, giving some unusual measurements. According to the law of 28 July 1879, the only legal gauges in Italy were 1,500 mm (4 ft 11 116 in), 1,000 mm (3 ft 3 38 in) and measured to the middle of the rail, which corresponds to 1,445 mm (4 ft 8 78 in) and 950 mm (3 ft 1 38 in) inside the rail.

The middle size has 1,000 mm between the centres of the rails, which explains why it is called Italian metre gauge, in spite of it in fact being 950 mm in gauge when measured from the inside of the rails in the way gauges usually are measured in other countries.

A disadvantage of measuring from the centre of the rail is that the width of the rail varies, affecting the gauge. It is easier and more reliable to measure from the inner edges of the rails.

The following 1,445 mm (4 ft 8 78 in) systems survive today:

The Italian standard gauge railway system has a total length of 24,227 km (15,054 mi) of which active lines are 16,723 km. The network is recently growing with the construction of the new high-speed rail network.

In Italy, track gauges of 1,100 mm (3 ft 7 516 in), 1,000 mm (3 ft 3 38 in), 950 mm (3 ft 1 38 in), 850 mm (2 ft 9 1532 in), 760 mm (2 ft 5 1516 in) and 600 mm (1 ft 11 58 in) are or were present.

The forementioned 950 mm „Italian metre gauge“ was also used in the former Italian colonies Eritrea (Eritrean Railway), Libya (Italian Libya Railways) and Somalia (Mogadishu-Villabruzzi Railway).

Berlin Art Week

Berlin Art Week is a 6-day cultural event that takes place in Berlin, Germany, once a year in the fall. Berlin Art Week showcases contemporary art from all over the world, through events, exhibition openings, artist films and art fairs, spanning approximately 50 institutions, including established museums such as the Hamburger Bahnhof (contemporary art museum – Museum für Gegenwart) as well as a great number of independent galleries.

Berlin Art Week was founded in 2012 as successor of the art forum – an internationally known art fair – that had existed from 1996 until 2011. Berlin Art Week has established its reputation as the yearly key event for contemporary art in Berlin combining “exhibitions, art fairs, art awards, and an auxiliary programme featuring talks, films, and tours. In addition, Berlin Art Week provides new, surprising insights into private collections, project spaces, and the city’s sites of artistic production.”

At the heart of the Art Week are two fairs: abc – art berlin contemporary – founded in 2008, and Positions Berlin – Art Fair founded in 2014. The abc fair was originally founded by 9 Berlin galleries and pursues a concept different from typical art fairs. abc wants to break with the traditional art fair approach, where each gallery has their separate booth. Instead abc provides larger open spaces that can be used by the presenting galleries to display anything from paintings or drawings to sculptures and installations. Galleries usually only present works by one artist, ideally a new production. The idea behind this is to create a coherent exhibition, fostering a dialogue, rather than present an eclectic collection of art pieces, presented separately and without a narrative. Positions Berlin on the other hand follows a more traditional approach providing separate booths to a multitude of national and international galleries.

The goal of the Berlin Art Week is to further grow Berlin as an art hub that attracts artists, gallery owners, and collectors from all over the world. Berlin Art Week is sponsored by the Senate of Berlin.

The Berlin Art Week 2016 was the 5th Berlin Art Week and took place between September 13 and 18th. Similar to previous years, the Art Week attracted more than 100,000 visitors in 2016. However, there has been some speculation about a crisis of the Berlin Art Week and particularly its fairs: the abc reduced its showroom capacity in 2016 and only presented 62 galleries – instead of 100 as was originally advertised on the Art Week website still at the beginning of September. Positions Berlin presented 74 galleries, keeping the number of galleries roughly constant. The next Berlin Art Week is scheduled for 12–17 September 2017.

Farmingdale, New York

The Incorporated Village of Farmingdale is an incorporated village on Long Island within the Town of Oyster Bay in Nassau County, New York in the United States. The population was 8,189 at the 2010 Census.

As of 2012 the mayor is Ralph Ekstrand.

Farmingdale is also associated with several unincorporated areas outside the village limits, including South Farmingdale (also in the Town of Oyster Bay within Nassau County), and East Farmingdale (in the Town of Babylon within Suffolk County). Many nearby places not within the village limits have Farmingdale as their postal address and the same 11735 ZIP code. Residents of East Farmingdale must use Farmingdale as their mailing address, and residents of South Farmingdale can use either Farmingdale or South Farmingdale. Bethpage State Park, which is mostly in Old Bethpage, also has a Farmingdale mailing address. Farmingdale Union Free School District (UFSD 22) includes parts of both Nassau County and Suffolk County. A road sign on Main Street in the south-east section of South Farmingdale (and over a mile from the Village of Farmingdale) welcomes travelers to Farmingdale. Farmingdale is also the name of the local Farmingdale Water District and Farmingdale Fire District, both of which also include areas outside the boundaries of the Village of Farmingdale. Farmingdale State College and Republic Airport are in East Farmingdale, both with Farmingdale mailing addresses.

The first European settler in the area was Thomas Powell, who arrived in 1687. On October 18, 1695, he purchased a 15-square-mile (39 km2) tract of land from three Native American tribes. This is known as the Bethpage Purchase and includes what is now Farmingdale, as well as Bethpage, Melville, North Massapequa, Old Bethpage, Plainedge, and Plainview. One of two houses he built in the area (circa 1738) still stands on Merritts Road in Farmingdale.

In the 1830s, anticipating construction of the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR), land developer Ambrose George purchased a large tract of land between a community then known as Bethpage and an area in Suffolk County called Hardscrabble. He built a general store in the western part of this property which he named Farmingdale. When the LIRR started service to the area in October 1841, it used the name Farmingdale for its latest stop, here, on the line it was building to Greenport. Stagecoaches took people from the Farmingdale station to Islip, Babylon, Patchogue, Oyster Bay South, and West Neck (Huntington area).

In 1886 a fire department was organized. The Village of Farmingdale was incorporated in 1904. In 1912, the State Agricultural and Technical school was established. The Lenox Hills Country Club, an 18-hole private golf course designed by Devereaux Emmet, was developed north of the community in 1923. This golf course was purchased by the State of New York, expanded and opened as Bethpage State Park in 1932. The original 1920s era Lenox Hills subdivision and later adjacent subdivisions, located between the Bethpage State Park golf course and the Long Island Railroad trackage, encompassing rolling hills and a wide boulevard, are known as the more upscale part of Farmingdale Village. Later, Farmingdale became a locus for the aircraft industry, notably Republic Aviation Company.

In 1899, Mile-a-Minute Murphy rode a bicycle along the Long Island Rail Road’s Central Branch through the Farmingdale area at a mile a minute.

For many years, the town celebrated its birth with the annual Hardscrabble Fair, with music, food and games. It was normally held in May.

Farmingdale is located at (40.733471, -73.445083).

According to the United States Census Bureau, the village has a total area of 1.1 square miles (2.8 km2), all of it land.

Between the 1990 Census and the 2000 census, the village gained territory.

Farmingdale is served by Republic Airport, a major general aviation reliever to the east of New York City; NICE routes n70, n71 and n72; and the Long Island Rail Road’s Farmingdale station. Major roads are New York State routes 24 (Conklin Street), 109 (Fulton Street), 110 (Broad Hollow Road), and 27 (NY 27). The village is the site of a transit-oriented development centered around the LIRR station.

As of the 2010 census The population of the village was 85.2% White, 71.1% Non-Hispanic White, 2.6% African American, 0.4% Native American, 5.5% Asian, 0.0% Pacific Islander, 4.7% from other races, and 1.7% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 13.7% of the population.

As of the census of 2000, there were 8,399 people, 3,216 households, and 2,051 families residing in the village. The population density was 7,432.2 people per square mile (2,869.8/km²). There were 3,289 housing units at an average density of 2,910.4 per square mile (1,123.8/km²). The racial makeup of the village was 87.03% White, 1.61% African American, 0.12% Native American, 3.70% Asian, 0.05% Pacific Islander, 5.06% from other races, and 2.43% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 12.57% of the population.

There were 3,216 households out of which 28.3% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 50.2% were married couples living together, 9.5% had a female householder with no husband present, and 36.2% were non-families. 29.8% of all households were made up of individuals and 11.5% had someone living alone who was 65 years of age or older. The average household size was 2.55 and the average family size was 3.19.

In the village the population was spread out with 21.2% under the age of 18, 7.3% from 18 to 24, 35.2% from 25 to 44, 21.6% from 45 to 64, and 14.7% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 38 years. For every 100 females there were 95.2 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 92.5 males.

The median income for a household in the village was $58,411, and the median income for a family was $68,235. Males had a median income of $46,104 versus $36,021 for females. The per capita income for the village was $27,492. About 3.0% of families and 5.6% of the population were below the poverty line, including 3.5% of those under age 18 and 13.0% of those age 65 or over.
