United States Senate elections, 1806 and 1807



The United States Senate election of 1806 and 1807 were elections that had the Democratic-Republican Party increase its overwhelming control of the Senate by one additional Senator. The Federalists went into the elections with such a small share of Senate seats (7 out of 34, or 21%) that even if they had won every election, they would have still remained a minority caucus. As it was, however, they lost one of the two seats they were defending and picked up no gains from their opponents.

As these elections were prior to ratification of the seventeenth amendment, Senators were chosen by state legislatures.

Oregon gubernatorial election, 1922

Ben W. Olcott

Walter M. Pierce

The 1922 Oregon gubernatorial election took place on November 4, 1922 to elect the governor of the U.S. state of Oregon. The election matched incumbent Republican Ben W. Olcott against Democrat Walter M. Pierce. With the support of the Ku Klux Klan, then a powerful political force in the state, Pierce won the election by a wide margin.

In March 1919, Oregon governor James Withycombe died in office, just two months into his second term. As prescribed by Oregon law, Oregon Secretary of State Ben Olcott succeeded Withycombe in office. In 1922, Olcott announced that he would seek a full term in office.

In the early 1920s, the Ku Klux Klan had become a powerful political force in Oregon. Olcott refused to endorse the Klan, and shortly before the Republican primary, issued an executive proclamation against the organization for terrorist acts conducted by its members which included mock hangings. Olcott’s actions nearly cost him the Republican nomination to the Klan-backed candidate, state senator Charles Hall.

With their candidate’s defeat, the Klan threw their support behind Democratic candidate Walter M. Pierce, who also agreed to back the Klan’s Compulsory Education Act, which would require all students to attend public, rather than private schools, a deliberate attack on Roman Catholic private schools. Both Pierce and the education initiative won wide, but short-lived victories in November: the education law was struck down by the United States Supreme Court in their 1925 Pierce v. Society of Sisters decision, and Pierce lost re-election in 1926.

14 Songs (Paul Westerberg album)

14 Songs is the first official solo album from Paul Westerberg, former leader of The Replacements. In many ways, it’s his second solo album, given that the final Replacements album, All Shook Down, was heavily packed with session musicians and marginalized the other three band members.

The album features contributions from Ian McLagan, former keyboardist for the Faces, a band that Westerberg has often cited as a favorite.

In an interview included with a special edition of the album, he explained that he started the record jamming with drummer Josh Kelly and former Georgia Satellites bassist Rick Price, but found that the combination wasn’t working, requiring him to seek other players. (The only song featuring Kelly and Price is the opener, „Knockin‘ On Mine.“) He also revealed that the album title was a reference to Nine Stories, by J.D. Salinger.

By March 1996, 14 Songs had sold over 161,000 copies in the US.

All tracks written by Paul Westerberg. 

Den tekniske Forening

Den tekniske Forening var ei forening i Christiania med formål «at befordre den intellektuelle og praktiske Udvikling af Hovedstadens haandværksdrivende Indvaanere». Foreninga blei stifta 25. mai 1847 på initiativ fra professor Julius Thaulow og skulle samle menn av «alle» samfunnsklasser: akademikere, praktikere, kunstnere og kapitaleiere. Bakgrunnen var tidas store tekniske framskritt og mange oppfinnelser.

Allerede etter en måned var det tegna 300 medlemmer. Foreninga blei leda av en direksjon med Thaulow som formann og et representantskap av håndverksmestre fra ulike fag. Til lokaler for møter, utstillinger og bibliotek leide en rom i Høyesteretts tidligere hus i Rådhusgata.

Den tekniske Forening blei raskt et forum for presentasjon av tekniske og vitenskapelige framskritt. Thaulow holdt sjøl det første foredraget, «om Midlerne til Træsubstantsens Konservation». Det blei også arrangert ei maskin- og modellutstilling til inspirasjon for landets framvoksende industri. Videre blei det etter kort tid bygd opp et ganske omfattende bibliotek av teknisk litteratur.

Utstillingene blei en årlig og populær foreteelse. Foreningas medlemstall økte til rundt 600, og myndighetene viste den tillit som høringsinstans i ei rekke saker. På Indredepartementets forespørsel tok foreninga ansvaret for norsk representasjon på Verdensutstillinga i London i 1851. Deltakelsen blei riktig nok liten, en presentasjon av norsk treskjærerkunst og av slepne porfyrgjenstander, men et frø var sådd, og ved utstillinga i Paris i 1855 var det 122 norske deltakere, hvorav tretten fikk medaljer. Også ved seinere utstillinger var Den tekniske Forening medansvarlig og ikke minst en heftig og suksessrik lobbyist for statlige bevilgninger til deltakelse.

Stor betydning hadde også en del nasjonale utstillinger som foreninga arrangerte. For å vise bredden kan nevnes noen av de fag som det blei tildelt bronsemedaljer til ved utstillinga i 1854: jernstøping, instrumentmakeri, filhogging, treskjæring, kurvfletting, forgylling, garnspinning, musikkinstrumenter (fiolin, tenorbasun), papparbeider, reipslaging og karttegning.

Utover på 1860-tallet sank interessen for foreningas aktiviteter, noe som nok dels skyldes at store nasjonale saker i det politiske liv kom i fokus og i allmennheten skygga for tekniske og vitenskapelige spørsmål. I tillegg kom at det kom nye lover om næringsfrihet som svekka håndverkerstandens stilling i landet.

Etter flere forsøk og en god del praktisk samarbeid blei Den tekniske Forening i 1871 slått sammen med Christiania Haandværkerforening til Den norske Haandværks- og Industriforening i Kristiania.

Gerry Harris

* Senior club appearances and goals counted for the domestic league only.

Gerald William Harris (born 8 October 1935) is an English former professional footballer. He spent the majority of his league career with Wolverhampton Wanderers, winning two league championships and the FA Cup.

Harris was signed up by Wolves as an amateur, after an unsuccessful trial at West Bromwich Albion in 1953. He turned pro in January 1954 but spent a few seasons in the reserves before finally making his senior debut on 29 August 1956 in a 5–4 win over Luton Town.

He initially only found himself in the team to cover for the then-injured Bill Shorthouse, but made the position his own. He was a virtual ever-present over the period 1956–1961, which saw the club win two successive league championships – missing out on a third by a single point – and the 1960 FA Cup. He also appeared in every European Cup game in the club’s history.

The emergence of Bobby Thomson in 1962 though, pushed Harris out of the first team and he was again consigned to reserve team football over the next few seasons. He returned to contention in the 1964–65 campaign which ended in relegation. He played just twice more for the club after the drop, before moving to neighbours Walsall in 1966, after a total of 270 appearances for Wolves. However, injury curtailed his career with the Saddlers after just 12 months.

By the People

By The People is a 2005 Malayalam film directed by Jayaraj starring Narain. It is the sequel of 4 the People (2004) and the prequel of Of the People (2008).

Two years after the events in 4 the People, a group of four students join up to fight corruption in education. They are angered with the suicide of a student who does not get a loan for her studies. The police department brings Rajan Mathew (Sunil) back from the administrative job that he had been shifted to for killing a student.

Rajan’s investigation leads to a powerful kingmaker who controls the media and political parties. Rajan tapes the conversation. His wife is murdered, and he is crippled by the attack. He is now posted as in charge of jails. The gang that opposed corruption lead an attack on the kingmaker who lays a trap in which they get killed. Rajan employs a few members of the 4 the people, who are in jail, and uses his brains to annihilate the members of the caucus.

An investigating officer (Satish Poduval) is close on the trail of the student gang and Rajan but gives up without getting any clue.

By The People was produced by Sabu Cherian under the banner of Anandabhairavi. Narain plays the lead role, while Kutty, Mangala, Nischal, Sammad, Bijoys, Santosh, and B K Antony are also in the cast. The story is by director Jayaraj and the screenplay has been written by Sunil Parameswaran. Art direction is by Pradeep, costumes are by Kumar Edappal, script supervision is by Anwar Abdullah. Thayagarajan handles the action department and Kannan Sooraj is the still photographer.

The music is by Pravin Mani and all the songs have been sung by and featured on Tamil pop band S 5, comprising Anaitha Nair, Benny Dayal, Suvi Suresh, Bhargavi Pillai and Arjun Sashi. The Tamil hit single „Malaray,“ features as a Malayalam song.


Die Grafen von Eberstein-Naugard waren ein pommersches Adelsgeschlecht, das als Grafen von Eberstein, Herren des Landes zu Naugard vom 13. bis zum 17. Jahrhundert die Grafschaft Naugard, eine Unterherrschaft auf dem Gebiet des Bistums Cammin in Pommern, besaß.

Der Begründer der pommerschen Familie, Otto von Eberstein, der dem niedersächsischen Zweig der Eversteiner entstammte, wurde 1274 erstmals in Pommern erwähnt. Durch den Bischof Hermann von Gleichen, den Bruder seiner Mutter, wurde er 1274 mit der Burg und dem Flecken Naugard und 700 Hufen Land belehnt. Die Nachkommen Ottos von Eberstein verliehen Naugard 1309 das Stadtrecht.

Die Ebersteiner Grafen führten in ihrer Geschichte mehrere Fehden gegen andere pommersche Adelsfamilien. Eine Fehde der Naugarder Grafen Ludwig und Albrecht mit Dinnies von der Osten und dessen Sohn Ewald um Besitzungen in Plathe wurde in den Jahren 1479 und 1480 von Herzog Bogislaw X. beigelegt.

Ab 1481 war das Land Massow im Pfandbesitz der Naugarder Grafen. Im Jahr 1523 belehnte Bogislaw X. den Grafen Georg I. mit dem Land und der Stadt Massow.

Die Politik ihrer Lehnsherren, der Camminer Bischöfe, unterstützten die Naugarder Grafen uneingeschränkt und näherten sich wie diese meist den brandenburgischen Markgrafen an. Im Jahr 1472 wurde der junge Graf Ludwig von Eberstein zum „postulatus“ des Bistums Cammin ernannt. Da der von Papst eingesetzte Bischof nicht im Stift erschien, verwaltete Ludwig bis 1479 die Diözese. Die 1518 erfolgte Bestätigung des Grafen Wolfgang von Eberstein zum Koadjutor des Bistums wurde auf Betreiben Bogislaws X. rückgängig gemacht.

Mit Ludwig Christoph von Eberstein starb das Geschlecht am 3. Dezember 1663 im Mannesstamm aus. Mit der Grafschaft Naugard wurde 1665 Ernst Bogislaw von Croy belehnt. Nach dessen Tod 1684 wurde die Grafschaft zu einem brandenburg-preußischen Domänenamt.

Lo & Leduc

Lo & Leduc are a Swiss rap group from Bern. They broke through with a 2014 album called Zucker fürs Volk, or „Sugar for the People“.

Lo und Leduc started in the middle 2005 as a Bernese dialect group known as Pacomé. In 2007, the four-piece band’s singer Luc Oggier had voice problems for half a year, and Lorenz Häberli was brought on as a substitute. He thereafter remained with the group as a permanent member.

Pacomé published its first album in 2009. There were leftover songs that the two rappers, known as Lo & Luc, published „Update 1.0“ as a free download. Just six months later, „Update 2.0“ was released for free on the internet as well. Their third Update was released in 2012 with music designed to be more danceable. „Update 3.0“ was freely available on the internet, and with songs like Räuber u Poli, was a success.

Also in 2012, Lo & Leduc began planning their first commercial album. Besides Music, the pair studied German and History. They would do a collaboration with Dodo, another Swiss singer who had previously collaborated with Steff la Cheffe. It would take until the spring of 2014 for the album to be finished. With the release of the first single from the album, All die Büecher, they came in at No. 42 on the Swiss Hitparade. The album All die Büecher was released in April 2014, and rose to #2 on the charts within a week. It remained in the charts throughout the year, and in early 2015, went back into the top ten after the release of Jung verdammt (Condemned Young), which was a #3 hit. The album reached gold status.

In the 2015 Swiss Music Awards, Lo & Leduc were the performers with the most nominations (Best Group, Best Live Act and Best Talent). They won the award in all three categories, the second group to get all three in one year after Stress in 2008.
