Jean Roberti, né le 4 aout 1569 à Saint-Hubert (Belgique) et décédé le 14 février 1651 à Namur (Belgique), était un prêtre jésuite belge, théologien, controversiste et hagiographe.

Né le 4 août 1569 à Saint-Hubert, alors dans le duché de Luxembourg, Jean Roberti fait ses études secondaires au collège jésuite de Liège et de la philosophie au collège des Trois Couronnes de Cologne avant d’entrer au noviciat jésuite de Trèves, le 27 mars 1592.
Le noviciat terminé il enseigne le cours des humanités de 1594 à 1597 puis fait des études de théologie préparatoires au sacerdoce (1597-1600) qu’il reçoit le 1 avril 1600, à Trèves. Toute sa vie Jean Roberti est professeur, d’abord à Würzburg (1600-1602), où il enseigne la philosophie, puis à Mayence pour l’Écriture Sainte (1605-1607). Tout en y enseignant il est également recteur du séminaire de Fulda (1607-1608) puis de celui de Paderborn (1608-1611) où il fait sa profession religieuse définitive comme jésuite le 1 novembre 1609.
Roberti se trouve à nouveau a Trèves (1613-1618) pour y enseigner l’Écriture Sainte, puis après un bref passage à Luxembourg et Douai il est en poste au collège en Isle à Liège comme préfet des études, confesseur à l’église et modérateur des ‘cas de conscience’. Il demeure 26 ans à Liège (1621-1647), alors capitale de la principauté du même nom.
Bon connaisseur de la littérature et excellent théologien Roberti est surtout connu pour sa plume et ses talents de polémiste. Il entretient une longue controverse (de 1611 à 1619) avec le professeur de l’université de Marbourg, Rudolph Göckel (Goclenius) qui, adoptant la thèse de l’alchimiste Paracelse, prétend guérir des plaies à l’aide d’un onguent à base de magnétisme animal. Réfutant l’ouvrage (1613) de Goclenius Roberti l’accuse en termes vifs de ‘fanatisme, idolâtrie et superstition’. Les milieux scientifiques de l’époque se passionnèrent pour la controverse qui, de réponses en répliques, continua jusqu’en 1619.
La controverse est réanimée en 1621 par un médecin bruxellois Jean-Baptiste Van Helmont qui, dans un ouvrage, assure que le magnétisme animal est une réalité scientifique prouvée et, dans la foulée, affirme que les miracles attribué à saint Hubert sont en fait causé par le magnétisme se trouvant dans son étole. Originaire de la ville de Saint-Hubert Roberti se devait de réagir. Ce qu’il fit et obtint la condamnation du docteur-alchimiste. D’autres ouvrages de controverse défendent le culte et la doctrine catholique contre les idées protestantes.
Attaché à sa terre natale, Roberti laisse un ouvrage hagiographique de valeur. Avec l’aide de l’abbé de Saint-Hubert il rassemble matériau et documentation sur le saint patron de l’Ardenne. Cela dure trois ans. En 1621 il publie son œuvre majeure, la ‘Historia S. Huberti, principis Aquitani, ultimi Tungrensis et primi Leodiensis episcopi ejusdemque urbis conditoris, Arduennae apostoli, magni thaumaturgi’ qui fait encore autorité au XXe siècle.
Jean Roberti meurt le 14 février 1651, au collège jésuite de Namur. Depuis 1648 il s’y trouvait ‘en exil’, en quelque sorte. Il avait milité avec trop de fougue pour la création d’une province jésuite coextensive au territoire de la principauté de Liège.

Allan Oakley Hunter (* 15. Juni 1916 in Los Angeles, Kalifornien; † 2. Mai 1995 in Bethesda, Maryland) war ein US-amerikanischer Politiker. Zwischen 1951 und 1955 vertrat er den Bundesstaat Kalifornien im US-Repräsentantenhaus.
Allan Hunter besuchte die öffentlichen Schulen in Fresno. Im Jahr 1937 absolvierte er das Fresno State College. Nach einem anschließenden Jurastudium am Hastings College of Law wurde er 1940 als Rechtsanwalt zugelassen. Zwischen 1940 und 1944 arbeitete Hunter als Sonderermittler für das FBI. Danach gehörte er in der Endphase des Zweiten Weltkrieges dem Marinegeheimdienst OSS an. Dabei war er in England und Deutschland eingesetzt. Seit 1946 praktizierte er als Anwalt in Fresno.
Politisch schloss sich Hunter der Republikanischen Partei an. Bei den Kongresswahlen des Jahres 1950 wurde er im neunten Wahlbezirk von Kalifornien in das US-Repräsentantenhaus in Washington, D.C. gewählt, wo er am 3. Januar 1951 die Nachfolge von Cecil F. White antrat. Nach einer Wiederwahl konnte er bis zum 3. Januar 1955 zwei Legislaturperioden im Kongress absolvieren. Seit 1953 vertrat er dort als Nachfolger von Patrick J. Hillings den zwölften Distrikt seines Staates. Im Jahr 1954 wurde er nicht wiedergewählt. In seine Zeit als Kongressabgeordneter fielen unter anderem der Koreakrieg und der Beginn der Bürgerrechtsbewegung.
Zwischen 1955 und 1957 war Hunter Berater der Housing and Home Finance Agency in der Bundeshauptstadt Washington. Danach betätigte er sich wieder als Rechtsanwalt. In den Jahren 1952 und 1960 war er Delegierter zu den jeweiligen Republican National Conventions, auf denen Dwight D. Eisenhower und später Richard Nixon als Präsidentschaftskandidaten nominiert wurden. Zwischen 1966 und 1969 war Hunter Vorsitzender der staatlichen Kommission für urbane Weiterentwicklung (California State Commission of Housing and Community Development). Von 1960 bis 1970 war er am Aufbau und dem Betrieb der Rossmor Leisure World Communities beteiligt. Dabei handelte es sich um ein Seniorenwohngebiet. Danach fungierte Hunter in den Jahren 1970 bis 1981 Präsident der Hypothekenbank Fannie Mae. Nach dem Amtsantritt von Präsident Jimmy Carter geriet Hunter wegen seiner Geschäftsführung in Konflikt mit der neuen Bundesregierung. Ein Versuch seiner Absetzung scheiterte nur knapp. Im Jahr 1981 wurde er schließlich doch abgelöst. Danach zog er sich aus dem öffentlichen Leben zurück. Er starb am 2. Mai 1995 in einem Krankenhaus in Bethesda an den Folgen eines Herzanfalls.

Carélie du Sud

tisdag, maj 31st, 2016

La Carélie du Sud est le nom d’une région du Sud-Est de la Finlande, appartenant à la province de la Finlande-Méridionale. Elle a pour capitale Lappeenranta.
La région est la 16e région la plus peuplée du pays et elle est classée 13e en termes de superficie.

C’est une petite région, réduite par l’histoire à la portion congrue. Seuls quelques kilomètres séparent le lac Saimaa, dont s’échappe la puissante rivière Vuoksi, de la frontière russe. Les régions frontalières sont : au nord la Savonie du Nord et la Carélie du Nord, à l’ouest la Vallée de la Kymi. La Russie borde le sud-est.
Cette région ne correspond qu’à un reliquat de la partie sud de la province historique de Carélie. L’essentiel de la région, notamment tout l’isthme de Carélie, a été annexée par l’Union soviétique à l’issue de la Guerre d’Hiver en 1940, annexion confirmée par la défaite finlandaise de 1944 (Guerre de continuation). La capitale historique de la région est Vyborg, Viipuri en finnois. Elle se situe aujourd’hui du côté russe de la frontière dans l’oblast de Leningrad.
Neuf municipalités composent la région, dont deux villes.

Venetic theory

tisdag, maj 31st, 2016

The Venetic theory (Slovene: venetska teorija) is an autochthonist theory of the origin of Slovenes that denies the Slavic settlement of the Eastern Alps in the 6th century, claiming that proto-Slovenes (also regarded as the Veneti[disambiguation needed] people by the proponents of this theory) have inhabited the region since ancient times. Although it has been rejected by scholars, it has been an influential alternative explanation of the Slovenian ethnogenesis. During the 1980s and 1990s, it gained wide attention in Slovenia and the former Yugoslavia.
A version of this theory states that most of Central Europe and portions of today’s northern Turkey were originally inhabited by a single people – the Veneti – a people that were subsequently dispersed by several invasion from the North in the form of Celtic and Germanic migrations and by the push northwards of the Roman Empire. According to this variant, the Armorican Veneti, the Adriatic Veneti, the Vistula Veneti as well as portion of the Illyrians and the Veneti of northern Turkey were all related people who spoke the same or similar language. The theory also counts among the Veneti several peoples of North Spain, Northern coastal France as well as portions of Denmark, Wales and of Ireland. In this version, most of the northern Slavs as well as Slovenes and some Croats are the last remnant the original European Veneti.

The theory was advanced in the mid 1980s by a group of Slovenian authors, notably Jožko Šavli, Matej Bor and Ivan Tomažič. In a book published in 1984, the three authors proposed an alternative view on the ethnogenesis of the Slovene people: they rejected the notion that the Slovenes were descended of Slavs who settled the area in the 6th century, claiming that the ancestors of modern Slovenes were in fact a pre-Roman people they call Veneti (which would include the Adriatic Veneti, the Baltic Veneti, the Pannonians, the Noricans and some other peoples that traditional historiography identified either as Celts or Illyrians). According to the Venetic theory, the ancient Veneti spoke a proto-Slavic language from which modern Slovene and West Slavic languages emerged.
There were several similar antecedents to the Venetic theory. The priest Davorin Trstenjak (1817–1890) claimed that Slovenes were ancient indigenous inhabitants of Slovenia and that Slavs had ruled Europe, Africa, and Asia in antiquity; however, he gave up these claims after he found they were scientifically untenable. The lawyer Henrik Tuma (1858–1935) declared that Slovenes had been the first humans to settle Europe. The writer and journalist Franc Jeza (1916–1984) asserted that the Slovenes had Swedish origins.:142
The Venetic theory is based on several different arguments. One is the traditional Germanic denomination of several Slavic peoples as Wends (Proto-Germanic *Wénethōz > German: Wenden, Winden); this tradition has remained in the archaic German name for the Sorbs (Wenden) and the Slovenes (Windischen or Winden). Some medieval chroniclers also equated ancient Veneti with Slavs. The second argument on which the theory is based are supposed Slavic (proto-Slovene) toponyms found throughout Central Europe and Northern Italy; these toponyms have been studied by Šavli. The third argument is based on the ancient Venetic inscriptions found in North-Eastern Italy and in the Slovenian Littoral, which Bor interpreted as being Slavic.
The Venetic theory created a great controversy in the Slovenian and Yugoslav public in the late 1980s. Several of the most prominent Slovenian historians, such as Bogo Grafenauer and Peter Štih, entered into open polemics with the creators of the theory. On the other hand, many prominent public figures publicly supported the claims advanced by the Venetic theory, among them the designer Oskar Kogoj, authors Zorko Simčič and Lucijan Vuga, and politician Zmago Jelinčič Plemeniti. In the 1990s, the theory gained institutional support of the World Slovenian Congress, publishing much of the literature advocating the theory and organizing international symposiums. The theory has also gained support in some nationalist circles. However, the theory has been challenged by certain writers,:145 has been rejected by both mainstream linguists and historians, and has been characterized as ”a shabby Slovene fantasy.”

Priest Holmes

tisdag, maj 31st, 2016

Priest Anthony Holmes (born October 7, 1973) is a former American football running back who played eleven seasons in the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the University of Texas. He was signed by the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent in 1997.
Holmes earned a Super Bowl ring with the Ravens in Super Bowl XXXV. After rushing for just over 2,000 yards in four seasons in Baltimore, Holmes experienced breakout success after signing with the Kansas City Chiefs as a free agent in 2001. During his seven-year stint with the Chiefs, Holmes was a three-time All-Pro, three-time Pro Bowl selection and was named NFL Offensive Player of the Year in 2002. Holmes sat out the 2006 season with a neck injury, and after a brief comeback attempt in 2007 retired from the NFL. Holmes was also inducted into the University of Texas Hall of Honor, and the Texas High School Sports Hall of Fame in 2007.

Priest Anthony Holmes was born in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Although he carries the last name of his biological father, he never met the man, only seeing him for the first time at his funeral. He was raised in San Antonio, Texas by his mother Norma, and stepfather Herman Morris. When he was thirteen years old, Holmes spent a summer in Detroit, Michigan, working for his grandfather’s lawn care service. Working with much older men for twelve hours a day, six days a week, Holmes learned the work ethic that later shaped him as a football player.
Holmes, who had idolized Dallas Cowboys’ running back Tony Dorsett growing up, developed his own elusive running style while playing street football with the children in his neighborhood. Holmes would later attend Marshall High School, where he became a starter for Head Coach David Visentine. As a senior in 1991, Holmes rushed for 2,061 yards and 26 touchdowns. He was named Offensive Player of the Year, and led his team to a runner-up finish in the state championship game, losing to Odessa Permian.
Holmes attended the University of Texas from 1992 to 1996, playing the entire time for John Mackovic. He played in the final seven games of his freshman season, Mackovic’s first as head coach, rushing for 114 yards against Houston. After starting two games and averaging over five yards per carry for the second straight season as a sophomore, Holmes received more significant playing time as a junior. He rushed for 524 yards and five touchdowns, and was named MVP of the Sun Bowl after rushing for 161 yards and four touchdowns in a win against North Carolina. Holmes missed the 1995 season with a knee injury, allowing for the emergence of future Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams as the starter. Relegated to third string behind Williams and Shon Mitchell, Holmes scored thirteen touchdowns despite carrying the ball only 59 times. Holmes’ biggest moment came in the inaugural Big 12 Championship Game. Entering the game with a 7-4 record against third-ranked Nebraska, Texas upset the Cornhuskers 37-27, with Holmes rushing for 120 yards and three touchdowns. In Holmes’ final two seasons, Texas posted a record of 16-9, finishing ranked in the Top 25 each season. He rushed for a career total of 1276 yards and 20 touchdowns, averaging 5.1 yards per carry.
After graduating from college, he joined Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent in 1997. In the 1998 season with the Ravens, Holmes rushed for over 1,000 yards (leading the team in rushing) including one 200-plus yard game, the highest single game total of the season. In the 2000 season, he was supplanted as a starter by rookie running back Jamal Lewis. The Ravens won Super Bowl XXXV with Holmes as the game’s second string halfback.
In 2001, Holmes signed an inexpensive contract with the Kansas City Chiefs. In his first season with the Chiefs, he went beyond expectations by becoming the NFL’s leading rusher with 1,555 yards for 2001 NFL season becoming the only undrafted player to do so, until Arian Foster accomplished the feat during the 2010 NFL season.
Despite missing the final two games in the 2002 NFL season because of a hip injury, Holmes rushed for 1,615 yards with 21 touchdowns. In the 2003 season, he broke Marshall Faulk’s NFL record for total touchdowns in a season with 27, which was subsequently broken by Shaun Alexander with 28 total touchdowns in 2005 and later broken by LaDainian Tomlinson with 31 total touchdowns in 2006. Holmes and Emmitt Smith are the only two running backs in NFL history to have back to back seasons with 20 or more rushing touchdowns. On a pace to repeat the feat in 2004, he suffered an injury that ended his season with 14 touchdowns.
Holmes’ 2005 season was also cut short by an injury to his spinal column from a tackle by Shawne Merriman on October 30, 2005. He was replaced for the season by backup Larry Johnson. During the following off-season, new coach Herm Edwards promoted Johnson to the starting position. Holmes’ spinal injury did not heal by the end of the 2006 pre-season, and he was placed on the Chiefs’ Physically Unable to Perform list for the season. Larry Johnson took over full-time as the Chiefs’ starting running back. Throughout the 2006 season, Holmes repeatedly said that he would like to return for at least two or three more seasons in the NFL, but that he would not force a comeback if it could be detrimental to his long term health.
Following encouraging medical tests, Holmes reported to the Chiefs’ training camp in July 2007. However the Chiefs did not include him on the roster at the start of the season, listing him on the non-football injury list instead. Michael Bennett was traded at mid-season, and Holmes returned to the Kansas City roster, beginning practice on October 17, 2007. Holmes then completed the comeback 4 days later, playing in the Chiefs regular season game against the Oakland Raiders, carrying the ball 4 times. Priest made his first start since October 30, 2005 against the San Diego Chargers and played in a home game on November 11, 2007 in a 27-11 loss to the Denver Broncos. Holmes had 20 rushes for 65 yards.

Bundesland:
Die Bundesstraße 60 (Abkürzung: B 60) war eine deutsche Bundesstraße in Nordrhein-Westfalen.

Die Straße erhielt bei der ersten Nummernvergabe an Fernverkehrsstraßen 1932 die Nummer 60 und wurde ab 1934 als Reichsstraße 60, ab 1949 als Bundesstraße 60 bezeichnet. Sie führte von Duisburg über Oberhausen, Essen, Velbert, Wuppertal-Vohwinkel und Solingen nach Remscheid-Lennep. Dieser Streckenabschnitt wurde später durch die Bundesstraßen 231, 224 und 229 ersetzt. Mitte der 1980er Jahre wurde der restliche Streckenabschnitt westlich von Duisburg wegen der parallel laufenden A 40 zur Landesstraße L 140 umgewidmet.

Adventist Health System

tisdag, maj 31st, 2016

Adventist Health System is a faith-based health care organization headquartered in Altamonte Springs, Florida. It is not owned or operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, but does serve as an expression of the church’s health care ministry. 
According to Becker’s Hospital Review, Adventist Health System is one of the largest nonprofit health systems in the United States. With more than 40 hospital campuses and nearly 8,200 licensed beds in 10 states, Adventist Health System facilities incorporate the latest technological advancements and clinical research to serve more than 4.7 million patients annually.

Medical Pioneers of the Seventh-day Adventist Church established an innovative health care program in Battle Creek, Michigan, in 1866, looking to the healing ministry of Christ for inspiration.
During a time when many medical treatments were as harmful as the diseases they were intended to cure, the revolutionary health care center not only treated diseases, but also taught people how to prevent them through good nutrition, exercise and hygiene. It was a place where each person was valued as a creation of God, and where caregivers created a healing environment focused on providing extraordinary whole-person care. Their commitment and philosophy continue today in hundreds of hospitals, nursing homes and clinics around the world.
Part of this worldwide network, Adventist Health System was founded in 1973 to support and strengthen the Seventh-day Adventist health care organizations in the Southern and Southwestern regions of the United States. Today it is a national leader in quality, safety and patient satisfaction, comprised of 45 hospital campuses and nearly 77,000 employees. 
Although separated by geography, every Adventist Health System facility is united by the mission of Extending the Healing Ministry of Christ. Today, the tradition of whole-person care is carried out by practicing and sharing CREATION Health, a blueprint for healthy, happy living based on the principles given in the Bible’s creation story: Choice, Rest, Environment, Activity, Trust, Interpersonal relationships, Outlook and Nutrition.
Established in 1908, Adventist Health System’s flagship facility, Florida Hospital is the largest hospital in the United States, according to Becker’s Hospital Review.  It is ranked the No. 1 hospital in the state of Florida and recognized as one of America’s Best Hospitals in nine specialty areas by U.S. News & World Report. These include cardiology and heart surgery, diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and GI surgery, geriatrics, gynecology, nephrology, neurology and neurosurgery, pulmonology, and urology.
