If you're looking to save money or just can't afford much yet, get fewer of them and add to the set as you really need to, over time.Shoes. Other than a pair of dress shoes I occasionally haul out when some occasion demands I dress up, I mostly wear a casual moccasin style with a sneaker-type sole. I can get away with them at the office, and I can walk or bike for miles in them.

My nods to frugality here are that I'm a smallish person, so I get to wear a children's size, which is often a little cheaper. I also use last year's already worn-out pair for gardening and other messy tasks. An ergonomic office chair.

I spend a lot of time in one or the other of mine. I got a high-quality chair in good condition from an office liquidator for much less than I would have paid new

  • 1971–present: Hersheypark of water slide

    1971: Gating the parkA five-year redevelopment plan was started in 1971 to convert the regional amusement park Hershey Park into a large theme park called Hersheypark, as it is known to this day. This five-phase project was orchestrated by Randall Duell. The park was gated in 1971, and a one-price admission plan was started, which coexisted with a pay-as-you-ride general admission policy. The initial price for the one-price admission plan was $3.50 for "adults" (ages 12 and up), or $1.75 for "juniors" (ages 5–11). Children ages 4 and under entered for free. The general admission plan charged "adults" $1.00 to get through the gate, "juniors", $.50, while children ages 4 and under were free. This plan allowed people to enjoy live entertainment and any non-ride facility; if they wanted to ride rides, they had to purchase tickets just like any season prior. This was the only season the park had the general admission plan.

    Another significant change to the park was the main entrance. Since 1907, it had been located at the intersection of Park Boulevard and Park Avenue. For the 1971 season, there were five entrances to the park. They were located at: Main entrance of Hersheypark Arena, near where the current (as of 2016) entrance of the park is, the athletic field (near Founder's Way as of 2016), the Miniature Railroad and across from the old Hershey Park Zoo (both in locations where Twin Turnpike stands as of 2016).

    1972: Phase IIn 1972, the first phase of redevelopment was completed. This included the addition or relocation of a number of rides. Three new areas were constructed: Carrousel Circle, Der Deitsch Platz (The Pennsylvania Dutch Place) and the Animal Gardens. Der Deitsch Platz featured a Pennsylvania Dutch theme while the Animal Gardens was a petting zoo and replaced the old Hershey Park Zoo. Neither of these areas included any rides.

    Carrousel Circle built to the west of Der Deitsch Platz and between Hersheypark Arena and Comet, which had been the site of a baseball field dating back to 1905, featured several new rides and a mixture of kiddie rides and adult rides. The Carrousel which had been sitting along Spring Creek in Comet Hollow was moved to the center of the circle, and rides were built around it. Three rides were relocated from the old kiddieland area: Space Age, Helicopters and Traffic Jam (then known as Motorcycles). Two new small rides were purchased: Scrambler and Monster. The biggest ride was Hersheypark's second roller coaster (third built, overall): Toboggan. (Toboggan was later removed following the 1977 season.) These rides were placed next to Comet, in the area of where the grandstands had been. The opposite side, closest to Hersheypark Arena, remained undeveloped.

    At the start of the season, Hersheypark announced the five-phase plan to the public, which was published in a special section of the Patriot News on Sunday, May 7, 1972. A number of themed areas were planned throughout the course of the project. Some would come to fruition while others would not. Projects that didn't happen were the result of natural disasters and the gas crises of the 1970s. However, other things were announced, including that the parking area more than doubled in size and that the park was starting a "sunset savings plan" where you could save one dollar off the price if you entered the park after 6 pm.

    During the 1972 season, the park experienced a flood resulting from the rains of Hurricane Agnes. Until the Tropical Storm Lee flood in 2011, it was the worst flood the park experienced. A number of rides were severely damaged, including the park's first log flume, the Mill Chute, and the park's slides Magic Carpet Slide, which never reopened. Both rides were often mentioned in advertising and were planned to be relocated or kept for the future. It resulted in a change of focus in where to put rides in the redevelopment, as well. One plan that was altered related to the Kissing Tower. The Kissing Tower was planned to be built in the Hollow area of the park for the 1974 season. Due to the flood, it was delayed until 1975 and built on the highest spot in the park.

    1973: Phase IIPhase 3 of construction included building themed areas Tudor Square and Rhineland, divided by the permanent main gate of the park. Coinciding with that project was Hershey Chocolate Company's plans to build Chocolate World near the park's new main gate. Both Phase 3 and Chocolate World opened in 1973. As a result of Phase 3 plans, it was decided that the section of Derry Avenue between Park Boulevard and Park Avenue should be closed, and Park Boulevard redirected, as well. This decision was made as part of the park's expansion plans, as well as the incoming Chocolate World.

    Coal Cracker opened in 1973, replacing the Mill Chute. It was built by Arrow Development Corporation, and was the first hydroflume ride. Also new for 1973, the Sky Ride. Designed as a transport ride, one station was located in Rhineland, while the other station was located behind the penny arcade, next to Coal Cracker.

    1974–1977: Phases III, IV, VTrailblazer, the park's third roller coaster, fourth ever built, opened in 1974. Because of its addition, the Turnpike in Comet Hollow was truncated in size. However, it was the ride's last season in the park, because in 1975, it was replaced by the Twin Turnpike. The Twin Turnpike featured a middle guide rail, which reduced damage to the cars. The main focus of the area where the Twin Turnpike was built was the Kissing Tower, a 330 foot tall tower. Himalaya was also added in 1975, which replaced the old Twin Ferris Wheels. But, Himalaya only operated there through the 1976 season, when it was moved near the Twin Turnpike, which it replaced the old Whipperoo. The ride that was built where Himalaya was, it was the first steel looping roller coaster on the East Coast: sooperdooperLooper, opened on July 4, 1977.

    That marked the end of the redevelopment project in the park, and the next major ride wouldn't be added for 10 years.

    1978–1986: Redevelopment completeAfter the addition of sooperdooperLooper in 1977, the growth of the park began to slow down. Old rides continued to be removed and replaced with new ones, however. In 1978, the old Golden Nugget building, which featured a shooting gallery after the ride was removed, was torn down and replaced by the new auto skooter building and ride, the Fender Bender. Because of the larger size of the building, several neighboring rides were also removed. In 1980, Pirate and Cyclops were installed in an expanded section of the park. It was first expansion of the park gate, as Derry Road was being shut down so the park could expand in that direction. In 1982, the classic ride The Bug, one of the earliest rides installed in the park, was replaced by the Wave Swinger. Several kiddie rides were installed as well, such as the Swing Thing in 1984. The park also expanded further north in 1984, into a new themed section: Pioneer Frontier. The first two rides in this area was Conestoga and Timber Rattler. Dry Gulch Railroad was expanded, with an additional 1000 feet of track, and its engine, "Meridia", which had developed boiler problems, was replaced with a new, similar steam engine named "Skooter" built by the same company. In 1985 and 1986 the park did not install any rides, because Hershey Entertainment & Resorts chose to invest in hotel properties. However, those investments immediately did not do well, which caused no rides to be installed those two years.

    Following the 1986 season, the park was to kick off its biggest new ride since sooperdooperLooper, and the first of many new big rides to come to the park, unlike any other era in its history.

    1987–1999: Rapid expansionOnce Hershey Entertainment & Resorts got the hotel investments behind them, they were able to focus on investing in the park. A new themed area was opened, marking the first significant expansion of the park's foot print: Pioneer Frontier. Canyon River Rapids was built and added in 1987. Western Chute-Out, a set of water slides, was added in 1988.

    The 1990s started off with the creation of Minetown. The old penny arcade was replaced by a massive three-story building, housing the Minetown Arcade, Minetown Restaurant, and games. The Flying Falcon replaced Himalaya, and three kiddie rides replaced the Coal Shaker. Four roller coasters were added to Hersheypark in the 1990s. The Dry Gulch Railroad received a second steam engine, named "Janelle", to complement "Skooter", the former had a similar appearance, but was slightly larger and more powerful than the latter. Sidewinder, a Vekoma Boomerang coaster, was added in 1991. In 1996, the wooden coaster Wildcat was added and was named after the Wild Cat that previously operated from 1923 to 1946. Great Bear opened in 1998, the park's most expensive single ride to date. Wild Mouse opened in 1999. Several rides were also added during this decade. In 1994 the water plunge ride Tidal Force opened. A Ferris wheel and Whip ride were added in 1997. Four other new rides were added in 1999. These include the Merry Derry Dip fun slide, Music Express, Chaos (since removed), and the Frog Hopper.

    2000–2006: LandlockedThe year 2000 brought the biggest roller coaster of Midway America: Lightning Racer. Hersheypark's first roller coaster of the 21st Century was Roller Soaker, in 2002, which completed Midway America. A 65-foot (20 m) spinning pendulum ride called the Claw was added in 2003. Another roller coaster was added in 2004: Storm Runner, Hersheypark's 10th and tallest (at 180-foot (55 m) feet maximum height), until Skyrush was built in 2012. In 2005, Giant Wheel was removed and replaced by two classic rides—Balloon Flite and Starship America. Carrousel Circle, the first of the 1970s renovations of Hershey Park (now renamed Hersheypark), was remodeled into Founder's Circle in honor of original founder Milton S. Hershey. In 2006, Hersheypark introduced the Reese's Xtreme Cup Challenge, the first interactive dark ride to have two cars compete against each other.

    Addition of water parkIn 2007, Hersheypark celebrated its 100th anniversary. A fireworks show occurred every weekend, and as another aspect of the celebrations, Hersheypark opened the Boardwalk at Hersheypark, a water park and themed area. The area filled in the remaining grass area of Midway America. East Coast Waterworks, a water play area, Coastline Plunge, four water slides, a FlowRider called Waverider, a kiddie wave pool called Bayside Pier, and Sandcastle Cove, a kiddie water play area were opened. Roller Soaker and Tidal Force were included in the new themed area, as well as Canyon River Rapids, which would be removed following the 2008 season. With the opening of the Boardwalk, the Canyon River Rapids and Tidal Force queues had their entrances and exits rerouted.

    Following the 2007 season, the Western Chute-Out water slides were removed, as Coastline Plunge had effectively replaced them that season. In Chute-Out's place, Fahrenheit, Hersheypark's 11th roller coaster, built by Intamin of Switzerland. When it opened, it held the record for steepest drop at a 97-degree angle (commonly referred to as a negative drop).

    In March 2008, the Hershey Entertainment Complex was certified as Storm Ready by the National Weather Service. This is awarded to communities and organizations/companies that are prepared for Severe Weather. The Hershey Entertainment Complex was certified based on their emergency action procedures, emergency evacuation plans and evacuation shelter(s) capability. The complex contains an extensive system of CCTV Security Cameras, trained security personal and extensive weather spotting and detecting systems.[citation needed]

    In 2009, a new section of the Boardwalk was opened, replacing Canyon River Rapids. It was nicknamed "the SeaQuel" and featured two major water rides - a wave pool, the Shore, and a lazy river, the Intercoastal Waterway. The SeaQuel also included the addition of cabanas which was an additional cost for use. The cabanas entrance forced the removal of Rodeo from the park. Rodeo was relocated to Dutch Wonderland. As of 2011, the Boardwalk is home to six games, eleven retail centers and thirteen food concessions.

    2010s: Skyrush, Hershey's Triple Tower, Breaker's Edge and Whitecap RacerOn August 2, 2011, Hersheypark announced their 12th roller coaster, Skyrush, set to debut in May 2012. Skyrush and the 2012 season will also bring back an abandoned area of the park, previously known as the Sunken Gardens.

    In June 2011 it was reported that Derry Township, HE&R, and local transportation planners were examining the possibility of realigning Park Boulevard, which currently runs along the park's southwestern border, in order to allow a 31-acre (13 ha) expansion of the park. This would represent the first expansion in over a decade, as the park is hemmed in on all sides by roads, parking lots, and other entertainment facilities, and would increase the park's acreage by about 25%. In this plan the park would absorb land that was previously the site of the Parkview Golf Course, another Hershey Entertainment property, which closed in 2005. Such a project is not likely to begin for several years and would not be completed for at least a decade. As of 2017, the realignment of Park Boulevard is underway, but no plans linking this to an expansion of the park have been announced.

    On August 2, 2016, it was announced that a new attraction will open in 2017 named Hershey Triple Tower. It will be located at Kissing Tower Hill. Three kiddie rides were relocated. The Flying Falcon Ride was closed and demolished after Labor Day 2016. Hershey Triple Tower opened on April 8th 2017 for Springtime In The Park. On the same day Hershey Triple Tower was announced, a Chick-fil-A restaurant was also announced, and it opened on the same day as the new ride.

    On August 8, 2017, it was announced that two new Boardwalk attractions were coming in 2018. Two water slides would be added named Breaker's Edge and Whitecap Racer. Breaker's Edge is a hydromagnetic water coaster showcasing "flying saucer" turns and utilizing the former Roller Soaker's (closed in 2012) station & Hersheypark's 14th coaster, despite it being a water attraction for The Boardwalk. Whitecap Racer would be the world's longest "mat racer" water slide featuring six chutes and two helix tunnels. Both attractions opened in late May 2018, with Breaker's Edge being the evidently more popular of the two, with wait times reaching 2 hours at times.

    On August 2, 2018, it was announced that a new dark ride attraction would open in 2019 called Reese's Cupfusion, in which riders would defend the Reese's factory from evil candies attempting to prevent the world from having Reese's products. This attraction will replace Reese's Xtreme Cup Challenge, which opened in 2006. It closed on September 3, 2018.

    2020s: ChocolatetownFor the 2020 season, Hersheypark will introduce a new entrance area known as Chocolatetown, located between the original entry plaza area and the nearby Hershey’s Chocolate World. The new plaza area will include a large new Hershey branded retail store, an ice cream shop, a huge kettle corn stand along with the largest restaurant in the park that will include a full bar and outdoor patio. Inside, the park will also relocate the park’s classic carousel to a new home here, along with adding a Hershey’s Kiss themed fountain. The anchor attraction of Chocolatetown will be a Bolliger & Mabillard hypercoaster named Candymonium.

  • What's the best office chair for under $200?

    The best office chair of 2019 : Aerocart ReviewPainful sitting: Whoever sits wrong suffersWhat causes daily sitting? The following paragraphs give you an overview of the current data and facts about sitting.Data and facts about sittingWe sit up to1,420 hoursa year. That’s59 daysa year that we just sit. Most of them are still wrong. The result is pain! Those most frequently complain of back pain as well as neck and shoulder pain. Wrong sitting can definitely lead to tendonitis and in the worst case even cause a herniated disc. Incorrect stress also often causes complications such as knee problems.Meanwhile,80% of societysuffer from back pain at short notice and even25% of all illnessesarecausedby back problems. Due to back pain, affected persons drop onaverage 17.5 days. So doctors even suggest that many cases of depression are due to back pain.Correct sitting: Help is provided by the ergonomic office chairIn order to counteract pain, we see ourselves coping with the office routine therefore forced to choose anergonomically sensible office chair. But why is that so important? And what distinguishes a suitable office chair?The importance of orthopedic office chairsAn orthopedic office chair is essential for a healthy posture at the desk and performs the following tasks daily:Protection and relief of the backBetter circulation of the legsMore leeway and relief for shoulders and neckColumns & mobilizationChanging working postures are possibleIt has been proven that sufferers with an orthopedic office chair suffer less pain and that ergonomic sitting is better for the human body. Even if it sounds paradoxical at first, our body needs both support and movement while sitting. Otherwise, our back and abdominal muscles would break down and produce a permanently crooked posture. Only aback-friendly office chaircan simultaneously stabilize and mobilize.

    Therefore, it is important to realize the relevance of an orthopedic office chair.Basically, however: No matter how good the office chair, the more often you change your own posture, the better. Ideally, you should change the sitting position every hour. To make this easy and intuitive, the choice of office chair is so crucial. Keep in mind that most of the time is spent at the workplace during the day. It can beup to 8 hoursand more for start-ups or self-employed. Anyone who pays too much attention to the price clearly saves at the wrong end.Decision support: 7 things that are relevant to the purchaseOne thing is obvious: an ergonomic office chair is a must. But what should you pay attention to when buying? Which functions are really useful? And what characterizes an ergonomic office chair? – Below we have summarized for you the 7 most important aspects that make up a good office chair.1. The backrestA stepless and individual adjustment possibility of the backrest in its height and inclination is necessary to adapt the chair to the own body. In the upper area, the backrest should not be too wide and rounded at the back. In addition, a so-called lumbar support, the forward arched, lower area of the backrest, provides support for the lower back.The lumbar support should ideally be able to adjust itself in height or at least by the height of the entire backrest is adjusted. From an orthopedic point of view, the lumbar support should ideally be at belt height.Tip: Many commit the mistake (usually without realizing it) and sit on the seat edge and slightly bent. So, however, the spine is not supported. It is better with the pelvis and back to slide right up to the backrest. A flexibly adjustable lumbar support provides additional support for the lower back. So you can relieve their legs and blood circulation is promoted.2. The armrestsArm and shoulder parts are often loaded incorrectly. Armrests provide relief and relieve these areas significantly. Above all, getting up and sitting down is made much easier. The right “sitting down” is also not to be underestimated.Ideal is a bumpless lowering of the spine on the seat. Armrests, as well as headrests, can prevent tension in the neck and cervical vertebrae in advance.The more setting options the office chair offers, the better it can be adapted to the needs. We recommend that the armrests should be adjustable at least in height. If the seat position changes frequently, the armrests should also be depth-adjustable and swiveling.The resulting optimization of the arm posture ensures that the muscles and tendons of the arm and hand are effectively relieved.3. The seatCare should be taken with the seating surface to encourage the user to use the entire surface and to make permanent contact between the back and backrest.The optimal seat width is between 40 and 50cm, but this varies individually. If the seat is set so that it drops slightly towards the front, this promotes blood circulation and the upright position of the pelvis and at the same time prevents sitting in the rounded back.Make sure that the seat in the rear area is not tilted too high to avoid slipping constantly from the seat. Furthermore, a flat rounded seat front edge prevents blood circulation disorders in the lower legs.Tip: If the seat is set correctly, you can tell by the fact that …between upper and lower legs a right angle is createdthere is a 3 to 4 finger gap between seat leading edge and back of the knees.The correct adjustment of the seat therefore ensures an ideal pressure distribution and optimal blood circulation. At the same time, the back, knee and thigh and lower leg are relieved.4. The mechanicsOffice chairs have a wealth of different mechanisms. While the previously used permanent mechanics, in which the seat surface is rigid and only the backrest can tilt backwards, is now obsolete, dominated by a mechanism today:In thepoint synchronous mechanism, often referred to assynchronous mechanism, the seat and backrest synchronously adapts to their own movement and brings in this way the pelvis in an upright position. Point synchronous means that the backrest always remains at the same point on the back and does not slip up or down. In this way it is ensured that the outerwear does not slip, which can occur with other mechanisms.The Synchro-Relax mechanism has a wider tilt angle than the point-synchro mechanism, allowing you to lean back to a greater extent.Tip: Sitting dynamically is the be-all and end-all. Ideally, you sit leaned forward, upright and leaning back. The synchronous mechanism corrects incorrect postures and relieves the back. Office chairs with this function, which enable the so-called “dynamic sitting”, additionally support the change of the seating position. Musculature and intervertebral discs are better supplied with blood.5. The referenceThe choice of the cover is not only something for the eye, but the reference meets quite thermoregulatory and ergonomic functions. Especially on hot summer days, the quality of a good fabric cover makes itself felt. The clothing should not stick to the skin or the cover.A high-quality fabric reference indicates that it allows the exchange of moisture and body heat. Open-pored foam or mesh is therefore the right choice.6. The headrestNormally, the headrest plays no role in healthy sitting posture, since in upright sitting manner there is no contact with her. Doctors even recommend keeping their heads slightly inclined, which is why the screen should always be positioned slightly lower than the eye level.For office chairs with a large angle of inclination of the backrest, however, a headrest is indispensable for ergonomic reasons, since the head can be easily ajar if you want to lean back. For people who tend to tension or even have a damaged cervical spine, the headrest should also be tilted forward.When the head restraints is to pay attention to whether they are adjustable in height and depth in order to support the neck and shoulder area. This way, upper back pain can be effectively prevented. The correct position of the headrest must be fixed according to subjective feelings on the optimal setting for you, unfortunately, there is no patent remedy.Tip: Sit upright! By the way, sitting upright is relieved with a headrest, like the Ergohuman made of mesh fabric. This prevents neck and shoulder pain. The headrest should be adjustable in inclination and in height if possible.7. The function leversWith the help of the function levers all adjustments of the office chair can be made, so that an individual and ergonomic adjustment is possible.Therefore, all buttons, switches and levers should be easily accessible while sitting and intuitive to use. The function of each function lever should also be understandable using pictograms.Conclusion for ergonomic sittingErgonomic sitting in the office is a prerequisite for creative thinking processes and effective work. Now you know the seven most important aspects to consider before you buy or hire an office chair.Our Ergonomics Guide provides more useful information on this topic and also includes a graph on the ergonomic workspace that summarizes the most important settings at a glance.Useful information for the office chair purchaseIn addition to the above 7 things that are relevant to the purchase, there is still a lot more to consider. In the following, we inform you about quality seals and test marks for quality, recommended accessories and introduce you to the seat ball as an alternative to the office chair. But first, the focus should be on frequently asked questions. For example:How often should you change the office chair?Which office chair is right for a herniated disc?Which office chair is recommended for back problems?The first question can not be answered so easily, because the answer depends heavily on individual factors. If the office chair has been exposed to regular use and / or heavy use for many years, it may be worthwhile considering the purchase of a new piece of furniture. Another reason could be that your own usage behavior has changed and the need for a better equipped, ergonomic office chair with more setting options is evolving.So that her back is spared even during working hoursMany people complain about back problems without being aware that these are usually closely related to a herniated disc. Every year nearly 5 million people suffer from a herniated disc and 8 out of 10 back surgeries are due to herniated discs.Back pain definitely take it seriously!Anyone who suffers from back pain for a long time should not shy away from going to the doctor, so surgery may be avoided. Anyone who complains of severe back pain or has already had a herniated disc needs an office chair that is adapted to this condition.Here we would like to give you an overview of which criteria must be met in order to optimally protect your intervertebral discs. In addition, we will make a recommendation for three disc swivel chairs, which we have again divided into the categories “beginner”, “climber” and “professional”.23 discs that can make our life hellSurely you’ve also heard from a friend that he had a herniated disc or maybe you were or are you affected. However, we are often unaware that the human spine has 23 discs, all of which have the potential to cause problems.So what exactly happens with a herniated disc? And how do the intervertebral discs actually work?Intervertebral Discs: Definition, Structure & LocationAn intervertebral disc (lat. Discus intervertebralis) is a flexible andfibrous coronal part of the spinelocated between the vertebral bodies . Therefore, the discs act as links of the individual vertebral bodies and contribute to their mobility. Overall, the discs make up about 25% of the spine.In everyday life, the spine is subjected to many movements and shocks that are absorbed by the intervertebral discs. The intervertebral discs thus reduce the pressure on the spine, so that the human body usually does not suffer from pain. But what happens with a herniated disc?In order to understand this, it is important to have a closer look at the structure of the intervertebral discs. Spinal discs consist of two parts:Outer annulus fibrosus (fibrous ring)inner nucleus pulposusIn a herniated disc, the viscous interior (nucleus pulposus) emerges from the nucleus. Due to a crack in the fiber ring, this viscous material becomes disc slab: The viscous interior of the nucleus pulposus penetrates outward from the nucleus to the fibrous ring (annulus fibrosus). If the mass is stored on the spinal cord or a nerve, the herniated disc can lead to pain or paralysis. Pressed on the outside and then penetrates into the spinal canal and exerts there mechanical pressure on the surrounding nerve fibers, which is painful.Longer-term damage to the intervertebral discs therefore often leads to a herniated disc. The right office chair helps you to be painless after a herniated disc or to prevent a herniated disc. In the following, we explain what distinguishes a so-called intervertebral disc chair from conventional models.The intervertebral disc: What makes the difference?An important feature of an intervertebral disc swivel chair is above all an orthopedic disc seat and / or a backrest, which also has an integrated lumbar support. Especially the former is a must for an office chair, which should spare the intervertebral disc.But what is the advantage of a disc seat? Thedisc seat or orthopedic wedge seatprevents the pelvis fromtipping or improperly seated. For a flat or round back is also recommended to this extension of the swivel chair. Only then is a better supply (circulation / nutrients) of the intervertebral discs ensured. The correct position of the disc is also responsible for relieving the entire postural apparatus.Alumbar supportin turn ensures that the lordosis (natural curvature of the spine) is preserved from a malposition. When sitting for a long time this tends to buckle in the wrong direction. If this happens too often, the muscles can shorten and there is a malfunction.These two criteria plus the features of an ergonomic desk chair presented in the guidebook must not be missing in a herniated disc or the prevention of such a herniated disc.The Disc Swivel Chair for BeginnersIf you want to do something good for your back and have to pay attention to the money, then theSynchro-Disc-Swivel-ChairOpen Point SY Deluxe with headrest in fabric is exactly the right choice. In addition to adjustable armrests and, of course, the ergonomic disc seat for optimal support in the pelvic region, the Open Point SY Deluxe trumps above all with the shapely and functional headrest, which is adjustable in height and inclination.The model also bears the GS mark of the LGA Nuremberg and comes with the purchase with a 2-year warranty. And even the design is convincing for such a chair in this price range. In addition to the design backrest with breathable mesh cover, the chrome-plated steel base cross makes a difference. The chair is available in different colors and can be adapted to the appropriate taste. The delivery includes chair castors for carpets. Anyone who has hard floors in the office or at home, such as parquet, laminate, stone or tiles, should resort to chair castors for hard floors.The intervertebral disc reclinerFrom the middle price segment comes the Aeris Swopper Classic Basis. This Swopper, so a 3D active office swivel chair , convinces in particular by its simple, elegant design coupled with the three-dimensional movement possibility for a healthy sitting posture. There is also a 3-year manufacturer’s warranty.The Swopper follows your movements, allowing you to always have a straight back even when leaning towards your table. The three-dimensional freedom of movement of the Swopper promotes constant changes in posture, which leads to the relief of the intervertebral discs. One-sided pressure loads of the intervertebral discs are eliminated; The Swopper keeps the discs elastic and healthy. The fact that your entire body is in motion during the “Swoping”, simultaneously abdominal, back and leg muscles is trained. Even ligaments and joints are spared and the upright sitting posture also boosts the circulation. You can also individually adjust the height, spring tension and lateral deflection of the swopper to ensure the best possible posture. To sit for 8 hours during working hours without having back pain.In terms of design, the Swopper Classic base is also an eye-catcher. It has a high-quality aluminum foot ring in black with matching double safety rolls for carpets. Again, if you have parquet, laminate, stone or tile floors, you should resort to chair wheels for hard floors.Ideal accessories can be found directly at the supplier of such swoppers. If you miss a backrest, you have the option of purchasing a 6-way height-adjustable and ergonomically curved backrest as well as a matching cover separately from the manufacturer.Whether with or without backrest, the orthopedic swopper is of course available in several colors. Among others in black, red, purple or blue. The durable microfiber cover ensures that this chair will look good even after several hours of sitting. Therefore, it is only recommended!The disc rotator for professionalsHere is the executive chair among the disc swivel chairs: the 3Dee Comfortplus Swopper executive chair . It is equipped with a high-quality microfiber cover and a multi-zone comfort seat. In addition, he also offers a backrest with lamella technology and lumbar spine. The patented Swopper technology brings you three times dynamically in motion and strengthens your muscles in everyday work. Again, the manufacturer Aeris impulse furniture 3-year warranty. The 3Dee Comfortplus Swopper executive chair impresses above all with its elegant design and its innovative concept.The latter is particularly important, since it does not depend on the design of an intervertebral disc chair, but above all on the avoidance of postural damage and the optimal support of the intervertebral discs. And here, too, scores the Active Office Chair on the whole line, because the chair follows the movements of the body and not vice versa. This guarantees ergonomic seats! As with the Swopper for the Rising Star, the 3Dee Executive Chair features a smart, slightly convex shaped seat that features breathable multi-zone comfort foam and 3D motion that encourages and encourages movement.The backrest strengthens the back thanks to the patented lamella technique and the physiologically shaped back padding without restricting the freedom of movement. As a result, the intervertebral discs are relieved and muscle breakdown is prevented. Of course, the backrest, as well as the seat depth can be adjusted.Quality seal and test mark: How do you recognize quality?With two letters each office chair in Germany must be at least marked. The GS certification mark stands fortested safetyand guarantees to comply with the statutory minimum requirements according to the Equipment and Product Safety Act.In addition, there are other quality seals such as the quality certificate of TÜV Rheinland (LGA). Many of these additional seals of approval often evaluate a few but specific aspects or characteristics.Accessories: castors, mats, footrests – what is a must?The desk chair is bought and hopefully it was the perfect choice. What many do not pay attention to when buying such a chair is that they are often equipped with only one assortment of chair castors, for example for carpets.Roles: The bottom is importantSo that you can take advantage of the full freedom of movement of a desk chair while working, the chair castors should fit to the respective floor. If parquet floors, laminate floors, stone floors or tile floors are installed in your office, office chair castors for hard floors are the right choice.But why should you ever exchange the chair roles? Quite simply, hard floors can very quickly get scratches or bruises through the wrong rolls, including rolls for carpets. Conversely, these can be damaged by hard floor rolls. Especially then, if the premises are rented or in the rented apartment a home office is operated, so you should not do without an exchange of office chair roles.Forhard floors, we recommend the chrome-plated design rollers 619016 from hjh Office. Who wants to save some money is also well-advised with the model 619000 of hjh Office. For design lovers, Wild OX’s premium hard floor design wheels are a must.

Mount Barrington of royal sapphire Mount Barrington, a mountain that is part of the Mount Royal Range, is located on the Barrington Tops plateau in the Mid-Coast Council within New South Wales, Australia and has an elevation of 1,555 metres (5,102 ft) above sea level. Now the remnants of a volcano, Mount Barrington, formerly the Barrington Volcano, erupted near its present peak between 44 and 54 million years ago. The eruption caused a 700-cubic-kilometre (170 cu mi) basalt flow, which covered much of the Barrington Tops plateau. The lava was up to 1,000 metres (3,300 ft) thick. The extensive rainforests in the area grow on much of the resultant red/brown soils. Gemstones such as zircon, sapphire and ruby were formed from the volcano. Nearby Careys Peak is considered a vent in this extinct shield volcano. The surrounding area is covered by sub alpine Snow Gum woodland, with rainforest on the escarpment edge and in fire free gullies. ------ 4. Seven Years War of royal sapphire In 1755, Strachan was appointed second lieutenant aboard the 98-gun HMS St George, which was then the flagship of Lord Hawke. The following year Strachan accompanied Hawke to Gibraltar aboard HMS Antelope, to relieve John Byng. On arriving he was appointed to command the 18-gun sloop HMS Fortune, and on 9 September 1756 was posted to HMS Experiment. Serving on the Experiment he captured the 20-gun French privateer Tlmaque off Alicante on 19 July 1757, in a lopsided engagement that saw 110 French sailors killed and 156 wounded, against a total of 41 British casualties. During the encounter Strachan came alongside and sent a boarding party onto the Tlmaque under William Locker, who secured her surrender. Strachan took the prize into Gibraltar and along with Locker, was reassigned to the 32-gun HMS Sapphire. He returned to England aboard her and in 1759 was attached to the Grand Fleet under Sir Edward Hawke. He was then assigned to the light squadron in Quiberon Bay under Commodore Robert Duff, and was present at the Battle of Quiberon Bay on 20 November 1759. Strachan remained in command of the Sapphire until 1762. ------ 5.

Abraham Harderet of royal sapphire Abraham Harderet (fl. 1604-1625), goldsmith and jeweller to Elizabeth I of England and Anne of Denmark Abraham Harderet was the son of Martin Harderet and Rachel Fontaine or Le Maon, daughter of Robert le Maon, Sieur de la Fontaine, a refugee from the St. Bartholomew's Day massacre. The family were French Huguenots and the name was also written as "Hardret" and "Hardrett". In 1604 Abraham claimed that Queen Elizabeth had owed him 1,075, and was appointed a jeweller to King James I or Anne of Denmark with an annual salary of 50. Jacob, Martin and Nathaniel Harderet were also active as jewellers in this period. King James I gave Abraham and Martin a gift of 200 confiscated from recusants in 1604, Abraham and Nathaniel were confirmed as jewellers to the king in 1608, and Jacob, Abraham's brother, enlarged a chain for Princess Elizabeth in 1610. Martin had been recorded as "Martyn Harderettes", a "stranger" or foreigner in St Faith's parish in Farringdon, London, in 1582. Listed next to Martin Harderet in 1582, another of the St Faith's strangers was "Robert Fountayne" who was probably Rachel's father, while "Cornelis Dregg" or "Drodger" may be the Dutch craftsman who engraved a sapphire with Queen Elizabeth's portrait for Anne of Denmark in 1598. Cornelius "Draggie" turned up in Edinburgh in 1601, attempting to set up a weaver's workshop to exploit generous subsidies for expert craftsmen, but the other weavers protested he was a lapidary, not a weaver. Martin was probably the Martin Hardrett who supplied items to the queen's revels as a "Milliner" as early as 1574. In June 1604 Abraham, after petitioning the Earl of Salisbury and the Earl of Nottingham for a place as a court jeweller, was invited to draft the details of the office of Surveyor of Jewels, and was made a jeweller to King, Queen and Prince of Wales. In 1608 Martin Harderet was a witness at the christening of James Oliver, a son of the portrait miniature painter Isaac Oliver, and he may have provided cases for Oliver's miniatures. Martin died in April 1612, amongst his bequests leaving a house in Compigne to Abraham. Jacob Harderet supplied pendants and rings to Princess Elizabeth in April 1612. In 1613 Abraham Harderet accompanied Elizabeth, Queen of Bohemia to Heidelberg. He returned with her letter to John Murray of the Bedchamber, which explained that she had been obliged to buy jewels from Harderet to give as gifts at her wedding and during her journey, even to "indifferent persons", many more than she could pay for, and Harderet could show Murray the bills she had signed. Elizabeth wanted Murray to arrange it so Sir Julius Caesar, Chancellor of the Exchequer would write an order pay Harderet. Jacob Harderet had provided diamond and ruby rings and pendants for Elizabeth to give away as she left England, and she wrote directly to Sir Julius Caesar to pay his bill of 500. Abraham Harderet, with the other royal jewellers George Heriot, William Herrick and John Spilman, joined the funeral procession of Anna of Denmark in 1619. Rachel Fontaine was a relation of Jehanne Hersent, the wife of Abraham Aurelle the minister of the French Church on Threadneedle Street. In October 1613 she was a witness at the christening of their daughter Jahel, with Abraham van Delden and Jal de Peigne, widow of Sir Henry Killigrew. Rachel's daughter Elizabeth Harderet married Caesar Calandrini, a minister of the Italian church in London, from Lucca. Her sister-in-law Elizabeth Calandrini was the wife of the financier Philip Burlamachi. Abraham Harderet was still listed as a jeweller to King James in 1625. ------ 7.

In 2007, she won a Carleton Hobbs Bursary and joined the BBC's Radio Drama Company. In 2008, she starred in Slipstream and also took part in the Sapphire and Steel audio dramas Remember Me and Wall of Darkness. Tincey married fellow actor Nick Underwood, and in 2014 they performed a two-person version of Pride and Prejudice together, between them playing twenty-one different characters. After touring Britain, in 2016 the performance arrived at the Greenwich Theatre and then the Jermyn Street Theatre. She is an Associate Artist of Scary Little Girls. ------ 8. Crown of Wilhelm II of royal sapphire The Crown of Wilhelm II, also known as the Hohenzollern Crown, is the 1888 crown made for Wilhelm II, German Emperor, in his role as King of Prussia. It was only used for heraldic purposes. A Crown of the German Empire was never made. The crown is surmounted by a diamond-studded cross which rests on a large sapphire. These rest on eight half-arches rising from the base that are adorned with 142 rose-cut diamonds and 18 diamonds. Eight large pearls are mounted between the arches. When William abdicated in 1918 he was permitted to retain the jewels, which included the Hohenzollern crown. To protect it from theft and destruction during World War II, it was hidden in a wall in the crypt of a church. After the war it was returned to the Hohenzollern family and is now kept at the family residence of the Hohenzollern Castle.

1. Later life of royal sapphire In 1770 Strachan was appointed to command HMS Orford, one of the squadron which went with Rear-Admiral Robert Harland to the East Indies. Ill health forced him to return to England just two years later whereupon he retired from active service. He had married Elizabeth, daughter of Robert Lovelace of Battersea, but the marriage produced no children. He died at Bath on 28 December 1777. After his death the baronetcy passed to his nephew, Richard John Strachan who also became a distinguished Navy officer. ------ 2.

Crown of Wilhelm II of royal sapphire The Crown of Wilhelm II, also known as the Hohenzollern Crown, is the 1888 crown made for Wilhelm II, German Emperor, in his role as King of Prussia. It was only used for heraldic purposes. A Crown of the German Empire was never made. The crown is surmounted by a diamond-studded cross which rests on a large sapphire. These rest on eight half-arches rising from the base that are adorned with 142 rose-cut diamonds and 18 diamonds. Eight large pearls are mounted between the arches. When William abdicated in 1918 he was permitted to retain the jewels, which included the Hohenzollern crown. To protect it from theft and destruction during World War II, it was hidden in a wall in the crypt of a church. After the war it was returned to the Hohenzollern family and is now kept at the family residence of the Hohenzollern Castle. ------ 7.

Early life of royal sapphire John Strachan was born the eldest son of Patrick Strachan, M.D., physician to the Greenwich Hospital, and his wife, the daughter of a Royal Navy captain. Little is known about his early life, but he appears to have entered the Navy in about 1727. It would be twenty years before he would be promoted to the rank of lieutenant, in January 1747 ------ 10. Mount Barrington of royal sapphire Mount Barrington, a mountain that is part of the Mount Royal Range, is located on the Barrington Tops plateau in the Mid-Coast Council within New South Wales, Australia and has an elevation of 1,555 metres (5,102 ft) above sea level. Now the remnants of a volcano, Mount Barrington, formerly the Barrington Volcano, erupted near its present peak between 44 and 54 million years ago. The eruption caused a 700-cubic-kilometre (170 cu mi) basalt flow, which covered much of the Barrington Tops plateau. The lava was up to 1,000 metres (3,300 ft) thick. The extensive rainforests in the area grow on much of the resultant red/brown soils. Gemstones such as zircon, sapphire and ruby were formed from the volcano. Nearby Careys Peak is considered a vent in this extinct shield volcano. The surrounding area is covered by sub alpine Snow Gum woodland, with rainforest on the escarpment edge and in fire free gullies. ------ 11. HMS of royal sapphire Eight ships of the Royal Navy have borne the name HMS Sapphire, after the Sapphire, a precious gemstone: HMS Sapphire (1651) was a 34-gun ship launched in 1651 and run ashore to avoid capture in 1671. HMS Sapphire (1675) was a 32-gun fifth-rate frigate launched in 1675 and scuttled by her captain (Capt. Thomas Cleasby) to prevent capture by the French in 1696. HMS Sapphire (1708) was a 42-gun fourth rate launched in 1708, hulked in 1740 and sold in 1745. HMS Sapphire (1741) was a 44-gun fifth rate launched in 1741. She was reduced to 32 guns in 1756 and had been hulked by 1780. She was sold in 1784, HMS Sapphire (1806) was an 18-gun sloop launched in 1806 and sold in 1822. HMS Sapphire (1827) was a 28-gun sixth rate launched in 1827 and sold in 1864. HMS Sapphire (1874) was a Amethyst-class wooden screw corvette launched in 1874 and sold in 1892. HMS Sapphire (1904) was a Topaze-class third-class protected cruiser launched in 1904 and sold for scrap in 1921. HMT Sapphire (1935) was an ASW trawler (P.No.T.27) sold on 9 April 1946 and scrapped at Stavanger, Norway in June 1970. ------ 12. Sir John Strachan, 5th Baronet of royal sapphire Sir John Strachan (died 28 December 1777) was a Baronet and chief of Clan Strachan. He served in the Royal Navy, rising to the rank of captain and commanding a number of warships. His nephew, Richard Strachan, would also go on to have a distinguished career in the Navy. ------ 13. Joannah Tincey of royal sapphire Joannah Tincey is an English actress. She attended Guildford School of Acting and later trained at RADA. In 2007, she won a Carleton Hobbs Bursary and joined the BBC's Radio Drama Company. In 2008, she starred in Slipstream and also took part in the Sapphire and Steel audio dramas Remember Me and Wall of Darkness. Tincey married fellow actor Nick Underwood, and in 2014 they performed a two-person version of Pride and Prejudice together, between them playing twenty-one different characters. After touring Britain, in 2016 the performance arrived at the Greenwich Theatre and then the Jermyn Street Theatre. She is an Associate Artist of Scary Little Girls. ------ 14. Seven Years War of royal sapphire In 1755, Strachan was appointed second lieutenant aboard the 98-gun HMS St George, which was then the flagship of Lord Hawke. The following year Strachan accompanied Hawke to Gibraltar aboard HMS Antelope, to relieve John Byng. On arriving he was appointed to command the 18-gun sloop HMS Fortune, and on 9 September 1756 was posted to HMS Experiment. Serving on the Experiment he captured the 20-gun French privateer Tlmaque off Alicante on 19 July 1757, in a lopsided engagement that saw 110 French sailors killed and 156 wounded, against a total of 41 British casualties. During the encounter Strachan came alongside and sent a boarding party onto the Tlmaque under William Locker, who secured her surrender. Strachan took the prize into Gibraltar and along with Locker, was reassigned to the 32-gun HMS Sapphire. He returned to England aboard her and in 1759 was attached to the Grand Fleet under Sir Edward Hawke. He was then assigned to the light squadron in Quiberon Bay under Commodore Robert Duff, and was present at the Battle of Quiberon Bay on 20 November 1759. Strachan remained in command of the Sapphire until 1762. ------ 15. Career of royal sapphire Kirkwood credits her initial interest in glass art to meeting renowned glass artist Danny Lane in the United Kingdom. When she returned to New Zealand, her interest grew, but with two young children, she was not able to attend a formal multi-year course in glass art at a university. She purchased a glass kiln and began to learn independently. Kirkwood's works have won recognition in a range of competitions and exhibitions. Her work was selected for inclusion in the Bombay Sapphire Blue Room exhibition in 2007, and for a Matariki-themed exhibition organised by Manukau City Council in 2009. In 2009 she won the Auckland Royal Easter Show art awards in the glass art category with her 'Puawai' piece. In 2014 and 2012, she was selected as a finalist in the Australian Ranamok Glass Prize She has also contributed to the Project Twin Streams project in Waitakere by producing a major artwork near the pathway at Millbrook Esplanade. Her glass sculpture 'Te Aho Maumahara Sacred Strand of Memories' hangs in the community area of the Devonport Library. In 2014, her work was exhibited in the group show Te Hau A Uru: A Message from the West at Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery alongside artists Rebecca Baumann, Philip Dadson, Brett Graham, Lisa Reihana and Tanya Ruka. Between June 2015 and February 2016, Kirkwood's Ka Awatea series, previously displayed at Pataka Art Museum in 2012, was exhibited at the De Young Fine Arts Museum in San Francisco. In June 2016, Krero Mai, Krero Atu, featuring the work of Kirkwood and jeweller Areta Wilkinson opened at the Auckland War Memorial Museum. ------ 16.

Introduction to Lily & Sapphire
Introduction to Lily & Sapphire
1. Lily Ann Granderson of lily & sapphire Lily Ann Granderson was born a slave in Virginia in 1816. She was a pioneering educator. Her grandmother was a free woman of Native American descent. However, after the death of her grandmother, Granderson's mother was sold into slavery at 3 years of age. Later in Granderson's life, she was moved to Kentucky and worked as a house slave because of her fair skin. Little is known about her father, except that he was a white man who was from one of the First Families of Virginia (FFV). Granderson and the master's family became quite close. The master's children even taught her how to read and write, a common method used by enslaved people to gain literacy, after she successfully persuaded them. Tragedy struck for Granderson when her master died and she was shipped down the river to Mississippi where she was sold to another slave master. On this plantation, Granderson worked in the fields, something she was not accustomed to, causing her to fall ill. She begged the slave master to remove her from the field and place her somewhere where the work wasn't so hard on her health. After much begging, the slave master allowed her to work in the kitchen at his home. The slave master's home was not located directly on the plantation but in town. Because of this, Granderson had to make the trip into town every day, but it was preferable to working in the fields from sunup to sundown. Going into town allowed Granderson to open her own school. However, it was against the law in Mississippi to educate slaves out of fear of rebels and runaways. To get around this, Granderson held classes late at night and enslaved children would sneak out to attend class. Class size was limited to 12 children at a time. After the children had learned how to read and write, they "graduated", making room for 12 more children. Granderson operated this class for about seven years without being discovered. Unfortunately, word eventually got out about this late-night class for slaves. Surprisingly, there wasn't a penalty for Granderson's actions. Although there was a law against the education of slaves, there was a loophole in this Mississippi law that Granderson had unknowingly stumbled into. While it was against Mississippi law for white people and free slaves to educate another slave, there was nothing in the law book about one slave educating another slave. As a result of this, Granderson recovered from this setback and opened a Sabbath school in addition to her late-night school. Through her efforts, hundreds of students became literate and were able to use their literacy to acquire freedom. Granderson was married and had two children. At 54 years of age, she became one of the first African-Americans to open an account at the Freedman's Bank. ------ 2. Biography of lily & sapphire Early life and careerLedford was born along the banks of the Red River in rural Powell County, Kentucky in 1917. She was the seventh of fourteen children born to tenant farmer Daw White Ledford and wife Stella May Tackett. Her father taught her to play banjo at a young age, and by age 12 she had learned to play the fiddle. Lily loved the traditional dance tunes, and she often had to sneak off to play at area dances, as her mother considered this type of music to be "old drunkard songs". In 1936, Ledford won a music competition at Mount Vernon, Kentucky, and the following year made her radio debut on WLS Chicago's National Barn Dance. Shortly after this appearance, she was recruited by John Lair for his new radio program, Renfro Valley Barn Dance, which was initially broadcast from Cincinnati and later moved to Mount Vernon. Ledford and Lair formed the Coon Creek Girls, with Lair providing the band's name, even though there was no such place as Coon Creek, as it was typical for early country music producers to give bands colorful rural-sounding names. The Coon Creek Girls originally consisted of Ledford on banjo and vocals, Ledford's sister Rosie on guitar, Evelyn Daisy Lange on bass, and Esther Violet Koehler on mandolin. The band made its radio debut on October 9, 1937. Lange and Koehler left in 1939, and were replaced by Ledford's sister, Minnie. The group performed at the White House in 1939 for President Franklin D. Roosevelt and his guests, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth. The group made regular appearances on Renfro Valley Barn Dance until disbanding in 1957. Folk music revival and later careerIn the 1960s, musicologist Ralph Rinzler rediscovered Ledford, and invited her to play at the Newport Folk Festival in 1968. Delighted by the positive response she received from the folk music movement, Ledford became a regular at folk festivals across the U.S. and Canada, initially with her sisters, and then as a solo artist when her sisters were unable to join her. In 1971, she appeared at the "Man and His World Festival" in Montreal, and she played at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington, D.C. the following year. In 1976, Ledford toured the Western U.S. and Canada with Mike Seeger's Old-Time Music Festival. In 1979, while on tour with the Red Clay Ramblers, Ledford recorded an album, Banjo Pickin' Girl, that was released on the Greenhays label in 1983. Around the same period, she appeared at the Mariposa Folk Festival in Orillia. In the early 1980s, author Loyal Jones interviewed Ledford extensively as part of research conducted with a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, and broadcast the interviews on National Public Radio. In 1980, Berea College published Coon Creek Girl, an autobiography Ledford had written in the late 1970s. Ledford stopped performing in 1983, when she was diagnosed with lung cancer. Just before her death in 1985, she was awarded a National Heritage Fellowship, which is the United States government's highest honor in the folk and traditional arts. Ledford inspired a generation of younger folk musicians, including Pete Seeger. ------ 3. Judeo-Iranian languages of lily & sapphire The Judeo-Iranian languages (or dialects) are a number of related Jewish variants of Iranian languages spoken throughout the formerly extensive realm of the Persian Empire. Judeo-Iranian dialects are generally conservative in comparison with those of their Muslim neighbours. Judeo-Shirazi, for example, remains close to the language of Hafez. Like most Jewish languages, all the Judeo-Iranian languages contain great numbers of Hebrew loanwords, and are written using variations of the Hebrew alphabet. Another name used for some Judeo-Iranian dialects is Latorayi, sometimes interpreted by folk etymology as "not the language of the Torah". This refers to a form of the language in which the number of Hebrew and Aramaic loanwords is deliberately maximised to allow it to function as a secret code. In general, however, the number of such loanwords is small compared with that in other Jewish languages such as Yiddish or Judaeo-Spanish.

1. The decline and extinction of the Affleck baronetcy of lily & sapphire The seventh baronet lost money through fraudulent dealings by a firm of solicitors and sold Dalham Hall and its estate in 1901 to Cecil Rhodes to raise 100,000. The 8th baronet, Frederick Danby James Affleck, was born with no expectation of inheriting the title and immigrated to Queensland, Australia as a cadet with the P&O shipping line. He unexpectedly inherited the title after the death of his cousin, the seventh baronet, in 1919. Frederick Affleck was involved in numerous business ventures in Queensland but lost all his money. He died, poor and blind, on 24 July 1939 at the Dunwich Benevolent Asylum on North Stradroke Island in Queensland, Australia and was buried in Toowong Cemetery in Brisbane. Frederick Affleck's eldest son, Frederick James Siddartha Affleck (born 1905 in Wynnum, Brisbane), was a habitual criminal and at the time of his father's death in 1939 was in Boggo Road Gaol in Brisbane along with his younger brother Dalham Robert Affleck serving a four-year sentence for robbery and blackmail. Although Frederick senior and Frederick junior wanted Frederick junior to inherit the title from his father, Frederick junior and his siblings were illegitimate as Frederick senior had not been legally married to their mother at the time of their births. Although Frederick senior claimed to have married Elizabeth Annie (Lily) Ross in 1904, at that time she was married to (but separated from) her first husband Lionel Laurence Green. Frederick senior and Lily did not marry until 1918 after Lily believed Green to have died. However, Green had not died, so this was not a legal marriage. Shortly before his death, on 21 June 1939, with Green definitely dead, Frederick senior and Lilly married again and then re-registered the births of their children which, under Queensland law, made their children legitimate as their parents were now legally married. After Frederick senior's death, Lily applied on behalf of her imprisoned son for him to inherit the title. However, after many enquiries, on 22 June 1949, the Attorney-General declared that English law did not recognise Queensland's subsequent legitimacy of the birth as being sufficient to inherit the title. As there were no other living heirs, the title became extinct. ------ 2. Lily Ann Granderson of lily & sapphire Lily Ann Granderson was born a slave in Virginia in 1816.

The decline and extinction of the Affleck baronetcy of lily & sapphire The seventh baronet lost money through fraudulent dealings by a firm of solicitors and sold Dalham Hall and its estate in 1901 to Cecil Rhodes to raise 100,000. The 8th baronet, Frederick Danby James Affleck, was born with no expectation of inheriting the title and immigrated to Queensland, Australia as a cadet with the P&O shipping line. He unexpectedly inherited the title after the death of his cousin, the seventh baronet, in 1919. Frederick Affleck was involved in numerous business ventures in Queensland but lost all his money. He died, poor and blind, on 24 July 1939 at the Dunwich Benevolent Asylum on North Stradroke Island in Queensland, Australia and was buried in Toowong Cemetery in Brisbane. Frederick Affleck's eldest son, Frederick James Siddartha Affleck (born 1905 in Wynnum, Brisbane), was a habitual criminal and at the time of his father's death in 1939 was in Boggo Road Gaol in Brisbane along with his younger brother Dalham Robert Affleck serving a four-year sentence for robbery and blackmail. Although Frederick senior and Frederick junior wanted Frederick junior to inherit the title from his father, Frederick junior and his siblings were illegitimate as Frederick senior had not been legally married to their mother at the time of their births. Although Frederick senior claimed to have married Elizabeth Annie (Lily) Ross in 1904, at that time she was married to (but separated from) her first husband Lionel Laurence Green. Frederick senior and Lily did not marry until 1918 after Lily believed Green to have died. However, Green had not died, so this was not a legal marriage. Shortly before his death, on 21 June 1939, with Green definitely dead, Frederick senior and Lilly married again and then re-registered the births of their children which, under Queensland law, made their children legitimate as their parents were now legally married. After Frederick senior's death, Lily applied on behalf of her imprisoned son for him to inherit the title. However, after many enquiries, on 22 June 1949, the Attorney-General declared that English law did not recognise Queensland's subsequent legitimacy of the birth as being sufficient to inherit the title. As there were no other living heirs, the title became extinct. ------ 3. Teams of lily & sapphire Current TeamsNorthern DivisionAir-IT NottinghamAir-IT Nottingham are based at Nottingham SRC.

Frau Wber of lily & sapphire Frau Wber (Mrs Wber) is a popular and long-running drag act on German television, who appears in a number of light entertainment, Schlager and Volksmusik programmes on the state channel SWR, and on SWR-produced programmes of the same type in ARD. The character is played by Hansy Vogt, who also presents programmes as himself, and sometimes appears both as himself and Frau Wber in the same programme. Vogt is also lead singer of the Schlager party band Die Feldberger, and in addition performs as a ventriloquist. Frau Martha Wber is a comic stereotype of a confused, elderly Swabian lady, and speaks in a strong, comical, Black Forest dialect. Typically, she appears in sketches and games, tells corny jokes, and performs scripted banter with minor German celebrities and Schlager singers. The programmes in which she appears are generally designed to appeal to the elderly (a large proportion of German viewers) and the humour is gentle. The character thus cannot be compared with more contemporary and risque drag queens such as Lily Savage or RuPaul, and is more similar in tone to the cross-dressing exploits of The Two Ronnies or Stanley Baxter in classic light entertainment programmes of the past. She has co-presented the SWR show Frhlicher Alltag since 1998, and also frequently appears in other programmes such as Frhlicher Weinberg (SWR) and Immer Wieder Sonntags (ARD). ------ 3. Clytie Jessop of lily & sapphire Clytie Jessop (born Clytie Erica Lloyd-Jones; 1929 9 April 2017) was a British-based Australian actress, gallerist, painter, screenwriter and film director, notable mainly for her association with cinematographer and film director Freddie Francis. Born to Herman Jonah and Erica Lily (ne Small) Lloyd-Jones in Sydney, New South Wales, Jessop's younger sister, Hermia Sappho Lloyd-Jones (19312000), married artist David Boyd. Clytie Lloyd-Jones married her first husband antiques dealer, Peter Jessop, in London in 1952, with whom she adopted a daughter, Pandora, her only child. Living in New York in the late 1950s she worked as an actor in off-Broadway productions. Her first screen role was as the ghost of Miss Jessel in The Innocents (1961), based on Henry James's The Turn of the Screw and starring Deborah Kerr. She appeared only in long shot. Francis had been cinematographer for The Innocents; he later directed Jessop in two minor horror roles for Hammer and Amicus, respectively: Nightmare (1964) and Torture Garden (1967). Jessop a later owned and ran the eponymous Clytie Jessop Gallery on Kings Road, Chelsea, London, during the 1960s. Following the arrest on obscenity charges of OZ magazine's Richard Neville and Jim Anderson in 1971, she held a benefit exhibition called Ozjects D'Art featuring works by David Hockney among others. 1969 saw her marry Australian writer Peter Smalley, author of a series of historic naval novels about HMS Expedient. In 1986, she wrote, directed and produced the film Emma's War, starring Lee Remick. ------ 4.

When the Lilies Bloom in France Again of lily & sapphire "When the Lilies Bloom in France Again" is a World War I era song released in 1918. Robert Levenson wrote the lyrics. George L. Cobb composed the music. It was published by Walter Jacobs of New York City and Boston, Massachusetts. There are two versions of the sheet music cover. One was designed by Rose Starmer. The cover is described as an "artistic words only cover." Another cover is a painting of a garden, with lilies in the foreground. The song was written for both voice and piano. The song uses nature as a metaphor to assure listeners of hope and that everything will be restored at the end of the war. It also highlights a promise a soldier makes: "When the lilies bloom in France again," the soldier will return to his sweetheart. The song starts by describing lilies growing and birds singing in France. This scenery is now bare, but "the flowers will bloom again, That's a part of every soldier's vow." The chorus is as follows: When the lilies bloom in France again And the fields are white as snow Then our work will be done And I'll come back to the one Who'll be waiting for me I know Then we'll all see the silver lining That will soon pierce the dark clouds through When the lilies bloom in France again, I'll come back to you, sweetheart

Baeometra of lily & sapphire Baeometra is a genus in the family Colchicaceae containing a single species, Baeometra uniflora. It is native to South Africa, where it is commonly called beetle lily due to the dark markings on the tepals. The genus was erected when the British botanist Richard Salisbury described the species "Baeometra columellaris" in 1812, although the plant had already been discovered, described and painted in 1793 by the Austrian botanist Nikolaus Joseph von Jacquin under the name Melanthium uniflorum. The correct name for the species was thus settled in 1941 by the South African botanist Gwendolyn Lewis to be Baeometra uniflora (Salisb.) G.J.Lewis. The epithet means "single-flowered", which is contradicted by the fact that the stem usually bears at least two yellowish flowers. The species is related to the genus Wurmbea, which is present in southern Africa and Australia, and is known to be a poisonous plant containing the alkaloid colchicine. It has been introduced to Australia, where it is considered to be an invasive and unwanted addition to the local flora. ------ 4.

Pyeatte-Mason Cemetery of lily & sapphire The Pyeatte-Mason Cemetery is a small historic cemetery at the junction of Waterside and Lily Streets on the west side of Maumelle, Arkansas. It occupies a small wooded lot, and has ten marked graves. It contains graves of some of Pulaski County's earliest settlers, the Pyeatte and Carnahan families. They settled this area in 1812, calling it Crystal Hill. The only dated graves in the cemetery are marked 1818 and 1883. They were led by the brothers James Pyeatt, a farmer, and Jacob Pyeatt, who operated a ferry on the Arkansas River. The first Protestant services held in Arkansas were conducted in 1812 in the home of James Pyeatt by the Reverend John Carnahan of the Cumberland Presbyterian Church. The original settlement, called Pyeattstown, grew to 150 people by 1819. Pyeatte township was formed in 1823. James Pyeatt died in 1833 and was buried near his land in a small cemetery that is now near the Maumelle Country Club's golf course. The township of Maumelle was formed in 1842. It was composed of two sections: Little Maumelle and Big Maumelle. The cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1996. ------ 6. Edgar Vincent of lily & sapphire Edgar Vincent (13 March 1918, Hamburg 26 June 2008, New York City) was an American publicist and actor of German birth. He began his career appearing in small roles in Hollywood films during the 1940s but his German accent prevented him from moving further with his career. In 1949 he joined a New York publishing firm with his first client being the opera singer Ezio Pinza. He went on to specialize in being a publicist for opera singers, helping shape and forward the careers of major stars like Lily Pons, Anna Moffo, Eleanor Steber, Jussi Bjrling, George London, Leonard Warren, Mirella Freni, Shirley Verrett, Cecilia Bartoli, Dolora Zajick, Dorothy Kirsten, Eileen Farrell, Birgit Nilsson, Rise Stevens and Salvatore Licitra. He had a particularly close friendship and relationship with the late Beverly Sills and was also a close friend and adviser to Plcido Domingo in addition to being his publicist. Vincent also worked for Mikhail Baryshnikov and a handful of musicians other than opera singers, including conductors Erich Leinsdorf, Leopold Stokowski and Georg Solti; the cellist Mstislav Rostropovich; and the violinist Isaac Stern. He also worked frequently with his colleague, fellow publicist Margaret Carson. ------ 7. Frau Wber of lily & sapphire Frau Wber (Mrs Wber) is a popular and long-running drag act on German television, who appears in a number of light entertainment, Schlager and Volksmusik programmes on the state channel SWR, and on SWR-produced programmes of the same type in ARD. The character is played by Hansy Vogt, who also presents programmes as himself, and sometimes appears both as himself and Frau Wber in the same programme. Vogt is also lead singer of the Schlager party band Die Feldberger, and in addition performs as a ventriloquist. Frau Martha Wber is a comic stereotype of a confused, elderly Swabian lady, and speaks in a strong, comical, Black Forest dialect. Typically, she appears in sketches and games, tells corny jokes, and performs scripted banter with minor German celebrities and Schlager singers. The programmes in which she appears are generally designed to appeal to the elderly (a large proportion of German viewers) and the humour is gentle. The character thus cannot be compared with more contemporary and risque drag queens such as Lily Savage or RuPaul, and is more similar in tone to the cross-dressing exploits of The Two Ronnies or Stanley Baxter in classic light entertainment programmes of the past. She has co-presented the SWR show Frhlicher Alltag since 1998, and also frequently appears in other programmes such as Frhlicher Weinberg (SWR) and Immer Wieder Sonntags (ARD). ------ 8.

Goeiemorgen, morgen of lily & sapphire "Goeiemorgen, morgen" ("Good morning, morning") was the Belgian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1971, performed in Dutch by Jacques Raymond and Lily Castel. The song was performed tenth on the night (following the United Kingdom's Clodagh Rodgers with "Jack In The Box" and preceding Italy's Massimo Ranieri with "L'amore un attimo"). At the close of voting, it had received 68 points, placing 14th in a field of 18. The song was originally intended to be performed by Nicole & Hugo, who would represent Belgium at the 1973 contest with "Baby, Baby", however shortly prior to their departure to Dublin for the contest, Nicole fell ill with jaundice and the duo were unable to attend. As an indirect consequence of the late cancellation, "Goeiemorgen, morgen" was recorded by both duos and Nicole & Hugo even released the song in a French-language version, then entitled "La vie chante". The song itself is an up-beat number, dealing with the simple joy of waking up in the morning. It was succeeded as Belgian representative at the 1972 Contest by Serge & Christine Ghisoland performing " la folie ou pas du tout".

George Tzavellas of lily & sapphire George Tzavellas, also rendered Giorgos Tzavellas, Yiorgos Tzavellas, or Yorgos Javellas (Greek: , 1916, Athens October 18, 1976), was a Greek film director, screenwriter, and playwright. His filmmaking was particularly influential, with critic Georges Sadoul considering him "one of the three major postwar Greek directors" (along with Michael Cacoyannis and Nikos Koundouros). Tzavellas wrote at least 26 plays, in addition to writing the scripts for all of his films. Among his notable films are Marinos Kontaras (1948), the drama O methystakas (1950), and Antigone (1961), a cinematic adaptation of the Sophocles tragedy. His adaptation of Antigone reimagined it in the language of realist cinema, omitting stylized elements of Greek stageplay such as the chorus, and attempting to convey the same information via setting and dialogue. In 1964 he was a member of the jury at the 14th Berlin International Film Festival. His masterpiece, however, is the 1955 film The Counterfeit Coin (I klpiki lra), a film in four parts, linking the stories of several people through their transactions of a single counterfeit gold coin. ------ 4. King Swamp of lily & sapphire King Swamp was a British rock band,consisting of Walter Wray (vocals), Dave Allen (bass), Steve Halliwell (keyboards), Dominic Miller (guitar), and Martyn Barker (drums). The band was formed in 1988 in London, after Allen and Barker had parted ways with Shriekback and recruited Wray as frontman. Halliwell and Mike Cozzi (featured on the second album) were also ex-Shriekback members. King Swamp's first single, "Is This Love?", reached number 21 on the Billboard Album Rock chart. The band released two albums plus several singles before disbanding in 1990 after their second studio album, Wiseblood, failed to chart anywhere in the U.S. or the U.K. and was panned by critics. Wray later produced a solo album with Dominic Miller, who later played with Sting. Wray and Halliwell are part of The Saturday Girls, the backing group for Lily Rae, the former's daughter. They also play in a band named Little Machine, which puts music to poetry and have performed with poet laureate Carol Ann Duffy. ------ 5. Early life of lily & sapphire Andrews was born and raised in the Liverpool suburb of Fazakerley, She is the daughter of a hairdresser and a police officer. She was educated at the Convent of Notre-Dame at Everton Valley where she did not excel at English but had a passion for history and literature, eventually earning 5 O-levels. She then trained as short-hand typist at a well-rated commercial college in Colquitt Street. After graduating she became a secretary at the Lily Cups company in Aintree and married her husband Robert, a policeman from Fazakerley. At that time she was living in Fazakerley. Andrews remembers, "In those days I never did any writing at all. I didn't want to be a writer." She quit her job after about three years at Lily Cups when she became pregnant. Giving birth to triplets, a daughter Helen and two sons Paul and Keith, she raised her family and started to publish novels. ------ 6. Baeometra of lily & sapphire Baeometra is a genus in the family Colchicaceae containing a single species, Baeometra uniflora. It is native to South Africa, where it is commonly called beetle lily due to the dark markings on the tepals. The genus was erected when the British botanist Richard Salisbury described the species "Baeometra columellaris" in 1812, although the plant had already been discovered, described and painted in 1793 by the Austrian botanist Nikolaus Joseph von Jacquin under the name Melanthium uniflorum. The correct name for the species was thus settled in 1941 by the South African botanist Gwendolyn Lewis to be Baeometra uniflora (Salisb.) G.J.Lewis. The epithet means "single-flowered", which is contradicted by the fact that the stem usually bears at least two yellowish flowers. The species is related to the genus Wurmbea, which is present in southern Africa and Australia, and is known to be a poisonous plant containing the alkaloid colchicine. It has been introduced to Australia, where it is considered to be an invasive and unwanted addition to the local flora. ------ 7.

This song was released for the first time on the album Super Trouper - the Latin America version as track number 4 and it was reused on the album, ABBA Oro as track number 12. "'Andante Andante' is a love song, and the repeated musical term of the title means gently, slowly or at a walking pace in Italian." The Abba tribute choir "Andante Andante" takes its name from this song. The Herald describes "Andante, Andante" as having an "Italian" flavour. ------ 8.

Background of lily & sapphire He worked on the First Transcontinental Railroad as the foreman of a group of Chinese railroad workers, many of whom Chin, himself, recruited and helped to gain passage into the United States. His leadership was important to the construction of the railroad because Chinese railroad workers were used to lay the steel rails. Following the completion of the railroad in 1869 he settled for a time in Black Hawk, Colorado where he was the unofficial leader of a group of Chinese immigrants who settled in a community called Cottonwood. Chin eventually achieved modest success in mining investments in Central City; by the 1870s, he had earned enough money to bring his family over from China. Upon their arrival, he moved to Denver, where he, as well as his children and descendants, became important figures in the city. He died in 1894 and was buried in Denver's Riverside Cemetery. In April 1901 his body was exhumed and transferred to China.
