Border pipe

La border pipe est une cornemuse proche de la Grande Cornemuse Écossaise. Elle est fréquemment confondue avec le Scottish smallpipes, qui est un instrument différent.

Le nom de l’instrument est issu de la frontière anglo-écossaise (”the Border” en anglais), où il était autrefois courant. De nombreuses villes avaient ainsi un joueur de cornemuse officiel. On retrouve la border pipe jusque dans l’Aberdeenshire au nord, et au Northumberland ainsi que dans l’ensemble du nord de l’Angleterre au sud.

D’autres noms ont été utilisés : Lowland pipes en Écosse et half-long pipes (litt. « cornemuse semi-longue ») en Angleterre. Ce terme se réfère particulièrement aux instruments des années 1920. Certains l’apellent Reelpipes.

La border pipe possède un chanter de perce conique, au contraire de la Scottish smallpipes où le chanter est cylindrique stainless steel waterbottle. Son son est également plus fort que celui de cette dernière, et moins rauque que celui de la Great Highland Bagpipe.

Il est équipe de trois bourdons cylindriques, enfichés sur une souche unique water glass bottle, comme sur le Uillean Pipe, ou les différent small pipes écossais, ou du northumberland. Deux bourdons sont accordés sur la fondamentale et son octave (La), et un sur la quinte (Mi). La quinte peut être grave ou aigüe. Il peut même disposer d’un bordon ténor, voire basse, à l’image du Uillean Pipe.

Le sac est généralement rempli par de l’air sec via un soufflet, actionné par le bras droit du piper, mais peut également − à la différence des autres small pipes − être gonflé par de l’air humide insufflé via la bouche, au travers d’un porte-vent, similaire à celui de la Grande Cornemuse Écossaise. De manière similaire, les border pipes modernes peuvent comporter un dispositif de déshumidification de l’air insuflé par la bouche.

Les anches de border pipe sont de conception très proches de celles du GHB sus-mentionné.

L’instrument est généralement accordé en la, mais certains sont accordés en si voire en sol. Il est notable que les partitions écrites pour la cornemuse écossaise sont jouables directement sur le Border Pipe mobile phone running pouch, car écrites en La majeur.

Les instruments sont relavement proches, mais diffèrent dans leur conception.

Stormwatch: Team Achilles

Stormwatch: Team Achilles is an American superhero series, the second incarnation of the Image comics Stormwatch. This version was penned by Micah Ian Wright, with illustrations contributed by Whilce Portacio, C. P. Smith, Mark Texeira, Tomm Coker, Carlos D’Anda and Clement Sauve. The longest run for a penciler on the book was by Smith, who drew issues 11-19. The title featured covers by Portacio, Jason Pearson and Michael Golden.

Stormwatch: Team Achilles differed from the previous super-hero-centric Stormwatch groups in that it centered on a team consisting mostly of ‘normal’ human beings from various global Special Forces/Counter-Terrorist organizations acting as a small UN troubleshooting team. The stated mission of Team Achilles was to kill or capture criminal superhumans.

The title was a super hero action series layered with satire of both politics and comic books. Real-world politics often entered the book with a storyline where the team replaced a Strom Thurmond/Jesse Helms-like Senator with a shape-shifting African superhuman and another where George Washington, reincarnated as a patriotic hero resembling Captain America, tried to overthrow the American government. The book threw potshots at President George W. Bush, mocked the ineptitude of the United Nations, and made light of modern pathos-driven corporate superheroes with mockeries of a Doctor Doom-like armored dictator character, the Justice League, the X-Men, Superman, and even Wildstorm’s own premiere superhero team, The Authority.

Some fans called Team Achilles ”G.I. Joe for Grownups” and noted comics writer Kurt Busiek wrote ”it’s like Sgt. Rock, but with Superheroes.” Although the enemies in the comic book have been the typical fantastic archetypes seen in comics, the weapons used by the Stormwatch team were mostly real-world weapons systems (such as the Barrett M82A1). Realistic weapons as well as tactics are used by the non-powered Team Achilles members to take down the physically superior enemies seen in the comic.

The book debuted to controversy from the first issue which, due to changes in DC’s printing schedule, came out not in October 2002, but instead on September 13, 2002, roughly the one-year anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. To compound the problem, the first issue featured a terrorist superhuman attack on the United Nations, which many readers thought was intended to comment on the 9/11 attacks themselves and, thus, in poor taste.

Because Team Achilles (like all previous Stormwatch groups) was a United Nations entity, the book often dealt with realistic political details such as the U.S.’s refusal to pay its U.N. dues, political interference with the goals of the U.N. by conservative American politicians stainless steel meat mallet, and the U.N.’s own ineptitude and corruption. In the charged political air, the book accurately reflected the disdain that President Bush and his administration displayed toward the United Nations.

Detractors of the comic disliked the political tone of the book. Released during a time when the American public was 88% in favor of a military intervention in Afghanistan, George W. Bush enjoyed a 65% approval rating, and 72% of the public supported the invasion of Iraq, the book took shots at conservative politics in general, ”weapons of mass destruction”, the Department of Homeland Security, America’s paranoia about terrorism and the accompanying culture of fear and, some felt, President Bush himself. Although the President in the Wildstorm universe was not specifically named after any known politician, some readers stated online that they felt that the mumbling, incomprehensible, racist Southern murderer depicted in the book was a clear mockery of Bush.

Additionally, many superhero fans disliked and disbelieved the concept that ‘normal’ human beings could ever hope to defeat superheroes. This was notable, given that the main concern of DC Comics (WildStorm’s parent company) was to revive and promote ‘traditional’ pure superhero comics over the darker characters pioneered by Image.

StormWatch: Team Achilles was canceled in mid-story, along with the rest of the ”Eye of the Storm” titles from Wildstorm, such as Wildcats 3.0. Issue #23 ended up being the last issue published. Wright’s revised script for Stormwatch #24 is online. The characters from the book were left isolated in a pocket universe separate from the regular Wildstorm continuity.

Shortly before the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Micah published an anti-war protest book, You Back the Attack, We’ll Bomb Who We Want!. The book, a satirical collection of old military propaganda posters repainted to feature modern anti-war messages, featured an introduction where Wright claimed to have been a former United States Army Ranger Sergeant who experienced combat in Operation Just Cause, the 1989 invasion of Panama. Wright gave a radio interview on ”Democracy Now!” with Amy Goodman. In 2003, gossip columnist Richard Leiby wrote a 2-page article extolling Wright’s poster work for The Washington Post. Wright’s credentials were immediately questioned by real Rangers who contacted Leiby. A year later, when Wright learned Leiby was writing an exposé questioning his military service, he confessed and apologized online that he had never served in the military and that his only military experience was as an ROTC student in college.

Following Wright’s exposure, Seven Stories Press, the publisher of You Back The Attack, We’ll Bomb Who We Want!, canceled Wright’s second book of remixed propaganda, If You’re Not a Terrorist, Then Stop Asking Questions. The book was later published by a division of Random House. Wright’s comic book Stormwatch: Team Achilles was canceled at #23, leaving one issue unprinted by publisher DC/Wildstorm.

Team Achilles returned to the Wildstorm Universe during the World’s End event in a two-part backup story written by Christos Gage with art by Ivan Reis. The story ran in Wildcats (vol. 5) issue #9 and The Authority (vol. 4) issue #9 and shows the team finally escaping from the Project Entry universe. The walk to Siberia having proven fruitless, Team Achilles has spent the last few years searching for a functional Stormwatch teleporter that can return them home. Finding one and powering it up with the help of Baron Chaos, the team arrives just in time to witness the onset of Armageddon. Flint (having become estranged from Santini during the team’s exile) leaves to join up with her former teammates in Stormwatch Prime and Santini vows to continue what they’re good at: killing superhumans.

Benito Santini – American of Italian Descent, Catholic. Was previously a field leader of International Operations’ Black Razors. When John Lynch defected from I.O., he became the Director of Operations, only to lose his post when Ivana Baiul became the Executive Director. After various events in the Wildstorm universe, Santini was later assigned to be the new ”Weatherman” to the Stormwatch team, although it’s later revealed he has his own agenda to the matter. Despite this, he holds his team members in high regard. Married to Flint.

Blake Coleman – Santini’s second-in-command of Stormwatch, field leader and best friend since their Black Razor days, Coleman is the chief on-the-ground commander for the team’s early missions, until his untimely death.

Luis Cisco – A close friend of Satini and Coleman who served with them during their Black Razor days. He was scheduled for a leave of absence due to his impending marriage, but ended up joining the team for one last mission on his wedding day. During the course of the mission, the same one that saw the death of Coleman, he received injuries that resulted in his leaving the team.

Victoria ”Flint” Ngengi – Formerly of the original Stormwatch team and of the same generation as the Authority’s Swift, Flint is only the second superpowered individual on the assault team. Possessing superhuman strength and a high level of resistance nearing that of physical invulnerability, Flint is the team’s door kicker. She later falls in love with and marries Santini.

Jukko Hämäläinen – Finnish, former member of the Osasto Karhu (Finnish Anti Terror Squad). One of the last survivors of a superhuman holocaust in that country, and initially the only superhuman-powered member on the assault team. Jukko’s powers are more of a curse than a blessing: he feels the pain of any individual within a four kilometers radius. This is one of the reasons this team operative is incredibly caring towards injured hostages, while highly lethal against enemy targets. He also seems to have a profound dislike of the Authority’s Midnighter.

Jaeger Weiss – A member of the German GSG 9, Weiss is an incredible handsome, suave, and more often than not sarcastic, but highly reliable team member. He is easily recognizable by the face mask he wears to protect his face when on missions. Being a member of GSG 9, Weiss is often depressed when hostages are injured during operations. Because his entire family was killed by superhumans he harbors a distrust of the superpowered individuals on the team. Nevertheless, he is still good friends with Jukko — the pair often engaging in witty banter on and off mission.

Galena Golovin – Russian sniper, one of the more aggressive team members, is a perfectionist of few, often harsh words. Shares an ‘interesting’ relationship with her spotter, Pickney.

Charles Cottsworth Pickney – Formerly of the British SAS, his military career stopped dead after he shot his CO in the head in front of the Queen. It didn’t seem to matter that his CO was possessed and attempting to assassinate the Queen, his upward mobility ceased and he ended up assigned to Team Achilles. Pickney is almost stereotypically British in demeanor. As spotter to Golovin, he and Golovin share an odd, often argumentative relationship with Golovin either commenting on Pickney’s degrading vision or less-than satisfactory manhood.

Ajeet Singh – A Sikh Indian, Ajeet Singh was one of the last ”official” Stormwatch members to join the group. He was called into service following Citizen Soldier’s attempt to overthrow the US government, and first saw action during the groups raid on Baron Chaos’ castle. He was given the option of leaving the group following The Authority’s take over of the United States, the idea being that he was so new The Authority would be unaware of his existence. He refused and remained with the group until the series cancellation.

Frederick ”Alias” Ngebe Braumholstein – Frederick is a post-human with shape-changing abilities, and is one of the few metahuman members of Team Achilles. He was brought in following Santini’s removal of Senator Sonny Terns, using his shapechanging powers to impersonate the Senator. In a rather ironic twist the Senator was a white conservative racist while Frederick is a liberal mixed-race South African. During his time impersonating the Senator he helped get through various liberal bills and financial aid for various African American organizations. During Citizen Soldier’s attempted overthrow of the US government his true identity was revealed, forcing him to abandon his mission and join the Team Achilles field team for the first time. He was given the option of leaving the group follow The Authority’s take over of the United States, it was thought that due to the covert nature of mission and the fact that he had never worked with the field team waterproof cellphone bag, that The Authority would be unaware of his existence. He refused and remained a member until the series cancellation.

Khalid Tefibi – Stormwatch’s resident tech geek, and the individual most often made the butt of jokes by the more masculine, hard-charging members of the team. Nonetheless, Tefibi’s technological skills and wit prove vital to the teams’ success and later their ultimate survival. Further, Colonel Santini reveals in Stormwatch: Team Achilles #16 that he is grooming Tefibi to be his replacement. In Santini’s words: ”That’s why I’m prepping you now, Tefibi…I need someone capable of taking over if I get greased.” Tefibi then expresses utter despair at the prospect of such responsibility. Santini recruited Khalid Tefibi from a federal prison where he was spending time for hacking into the Pentagon.

Avi Barak – A member of the Israeli Defense Force, Barak is an ”inductive telepath” first introduced in issue 4: his powers are such that, if he asks you a question, and you do not answer truthfully, he instantly absorbs the information from your mind. Through Santini’s efforts, his power level is raised to a much higher rating, although it has left the psi a little less than balanced.

Dr. Marie Grunier – Recruited from the French Gendarmerie, Grunier serves a dual role as the teams medical doctor and, when needed, as the teams hostage negotiator. She was romantically linked to Hämäläinen.

Buzz Dixon – Originally a StormWatch reservist, the creature known as Buzz Dixon was later recruited by Colonel Benito Santini as his chief scout and gatherer of difficult-to-get information on the Achilles team. Dixon handles nearly all of the team’s recon work as Team Achilles’ scouting specialist and primary intel-gatherer. He is often the first on the field, as he reconnoiters mission targets and locations pre-insertion. Buzz Dixon is a quadrupedal being possessing compound eyes, large, fan-shaped ears, and chameleon-like skin that allows him to become nearly invisible. Due to his unique optical, olfactory, and auditory physiology, Dixon possesses super-human senses. He also has a ”sixth sense” in the form of low-grade telepathy (He can mentally ”speak” in others’ heads and receive thoughts, but generally only if they are nearby.). Further, Buzz Dixon can cling to walls with the sucker-like pads on the bottoms of his feet, and he possesses a prehensile tail. Despite his completely inhuman appearance, Dixon’s personality suggests that he is human, or at least possesses a psyche very much like human beings. He is loud-mouthed, boisterous, swears quite a bit (he is partial to ”fuck”), uses current slang, and has the sort of stereotypical mannerisms of a cowboy-type or jarhead-type character. Due to his personality and human name, it can be argued that Buzz Dixon is a super-powered meta-human who was once human, but whose powers are manifest through a strange physiology that also stripped him altogether of his human appearance. However, he shows no distress over his esoteric physiology. Dixon had very little ”screen time” in the StormWatch: Team Achilles series, and his origins can only be conjectured.

Piešťany ( Aussprache?/i: [‘pĭɛʃcani]; deutsch Pistyan oder Pistian, selten auch [Bad] Püschtin, ungarisch Pöstyény – bis 1907 Pöstyén, polnisch Piszczany) ist die größte Stadt des gleichnamigen Bezirks und bekanntes Heilbad im Westen der Slowakei.

Die Stadt Piešťany befindet sich im nördlichen Donauhügelland (slowakisch Podunajská pahorkatina, Teil des slowakischen Donautieflands) am Fluss Waag. Durch die Stadt fließt zudem der Bach Dubová. Piešťany wird im Osten durch das Gebirge Považský Inovec flankiert, während sich nach Westen zu die Kleinen Karpaten erheben. Unmittelbar südlich der Stadt ist die Waag im Stausee Sĺňava aufgestaut.

Die Stadt besteht aus zwei Teilen, zum einen der eigentlichen Stadt Piešťany und zum anderen dem Ort Kocurice, welcher 1974 eingemeindet wurde und im Westen auf der anderen Seite der Autobahn gelegen ist.

Die folgenden Angaben beziehen sich auf die Luftlinie zum nächsten Ortszentrum und die Entfernungen sind auf halbe Kilometer kaufmännisch gerundet. Städte sind fett hervorgehoben.

Erste menschliche Ansiedlungen im Gebiet der heutigen Stadt gab es schon vor etwa 80.000 Jahren, denn das Gebiet weist ein sehr günstiges Klima auf. Darüber hinaus gab es eine Fülle von Thermalquellen, die auch im Winter nicht zufroren.

Eine kleine Frauenfigur (Venus von Moravany) wurde in der unweit der Stadt gelegenen Ortschaft Moravany nad Váhom (Moravan) gefunden; sie wurde aus Mammutelfenbein gefertigt und ist zirka 22.800 vor Christus entstanden. Sie befindet sich heute im Museum auf der Burg Bratislava.

In der ebenfalls nahe gelegenen Ortschaft Krakovany-Stráže wurde in einer Ausgrabungsstätte eine Sammlung von Luxusgütern aus Glas, Bronze, Silber und Gold in drei Gräbern gefunden, diese stammen aus der Zeit zwischen 200 und 300 nach Christus.

Der Ort Piešťany selber wurde zum ersten Mal 1113 als Pescan erwähnt. Damals bestand er aus verschiedenen kleinen Siedlungen. Auch die Heilquellen wurden schon im Mittelalter genutzt, so ist ein Besuch von König Matthias Corvinus überliefert.

Die erste Erwähnung der Quellen von Piešťany findet sich im Buch De admirandis Hungariae aquis hypomnemation („Über die wunderbaren Wässer Ungarns“) von dem Kauschauer Apotheker, Ratsherr und Bürgermeister Georgius Wernher (Georg Werner), welches zuerst 1549 in Basel und 1551 in Wien herausgegeben wurde. Während des 16

. und 17. Jahrhunderts hatte die Stadt wie auch viele andere in der Region unter den Verheerungen durch die Türken und die antihabsburgischen Aufstände zu leiden.

Im Laufe der Jahrhunderte gehörte der Ort verschiedenen Adelsfamilien, die letzte war die Familie Erdődy. Ihnen gehörte das Gebiet von 1720 bis 1848, das Bad selber sogar bis 1940. Die ersten Badehäuser ließ die Familie 1778 errichten, sie wurden aber durch die verheerende Flut von 1813 stark beschädigt. 1820 wurden die Badehäuser erweitert und im neoklassizistischen Stil umgebaut (Napoleon-Bad). Ebenso wurde ein Park angelegt.

Von 1889 bis 1940 wurden die Badeanlagen durch die Familie Winter gepachtet, insbesondere Ľudovít Winter brachte das Bad zu internationalem Ruf, indem er die Behandlungsmethoden (ab 1840 schon gab es einen ständigen Badearzt), aber auch die Unterkunfts- und Freizeitmöglichkeiten unter anderem durch den Bau neuer Badeanlagen und Hotels verbesserte. Während sich heute am rechten Waagufer zahlreiche Geschäfte, Lokale, Restaurants sowie der weitläufige Stadtpark befinden, liegt der Kurort mit den Kureinrichtungen und den Thermalquellen auf der linken Seite des Flusses.

1945 bekam Piešťany offiziell das Stadtrecht zugesprochen. Seit 1959 gibt es im Süden den großen Waagstausee Sĺňava; der Rückstau des Wassers reicht bis in das Stadtgebiet hinein. Trotz der Stagnation des Badewesens nach der Verstaatlichung des Bades 1940 wurden in den 1960er und 1970er Jahren (durch skandinavische Investoren) noch weitere Badegebäude erbaut (Balnea Grand, Balnea Splendid und Balnea Esplanade). Alle Hotels befinden sich auf der Kurinsel, die im Fluss Waag liegt.

Turkish lira

The Turkish lira (Turkish: Türk lirası; sign: ; code: TRY; usually abbreviated as TL) is the currency of Turkey and the self-declared Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus. The Turkish lira is subdivided into 100 kuruş.

The lira, along with the related currencies of Europe and the Middle East, has its roots in the ancient Roman unit of weight known as the libra which referred to the Troy pound of silver. The Roman libra adoption of the currency spread it throughout Europe and the Near East, where it continued to be used into medieval times. The Turkish lira, the French livre (until 1794), the Italian lira (until 2002), and the British pound (a translated version of the Roman libra; the word ”pound” as a unit of weight is still abbreviated as ”lb.”) are the modern descendants of the ancient currency.

The Ottoman lira was introduced as the main unit of currency in 1844, with the former currency, kuruş, remaining as a 1100 subdivision. The Ottoman lira remained in circulation until the end of 1927.

Historical banknotes from the second, third and fourth issues have portraits of İsmet İnönü on the obverse side. This change was done according to the 12 January 1926 issue of the official gazette and canceled by the Democrat Party after World War II.

After periods of the lira pegged to the British pound and the French franc, a peg of 2.8 Turkish lira = 1 U.S. dollar was adopted in 1946 and maintained until 1960, when the currency was devalued to 9 Turkish lira = 1 dollar. From 1970, a series of hard, then soft pegs to the dollar operated as the value of the Turkish lira began to fall.

The Guinness Book of Records ranked the Turkish lira as the world’s least valuable currency in 1995 and 1996, and again from 1999 to 2004. The Turkish lira had slid in value so far that one original gold lira coin could be sold for 154,400,000 Turkish lira before the 2005 revaluation.

In December 2003, the Grand National Assembly of Turkey passed a law that allowed for redenomination by the removal of six zeros from the Turkish lira, and the creation of a new currency. It was introduced on 1 January 2005 hydration vest, replacing the previous Turkish lira (which remained valid in circulation until the end of 2005) at a rate of 1 second Turkish lira (ISO 4217 code ”TRY”) = 1,000,000 first Turkish lira (ISO 4217 code ”TRL”). With the revaluation of the Turkish lira, the Romanian leu (also revalued in July 2005) briefly became the world’s least valued currency unit. At the same time, the Government introduced two new banknotes called TRY100 and TRY50 meat mallet alternative.

In the transition period between January 2005 and December 2008, the second Turkish lira was officially called Yeni Türk Lirası (New Turkish lira). It was officially abbreviated ”YTL” and subdivided into 100 new kuruş (yeni kuruş). Starting in January 2009, the ”new” marking was removed from the second Turkish lira, its official name becoming just ”Turkish lira” again, abbreviated ”TL”. All obverse sides of current banknotes have portraits of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. Until 2016, the same held for the reverse sides of all current coins, but in 2016 one-lira coins were issued to commemorate the ”martyrs and veterans” of the 2016 Turkish coup d’état attempt, the reverse sides of some of which depict hands holding up a Turkish flag while others show in stylized form a collection of five-pointed stars topped by a Turkish flag.

From 1 January 2009, the phrase ”new” was removed from the second Turkish lira, its official name in Turkey becoming just ”Turkish lira” again; new coins without the word ”yeni” were introduced in denominations of 1, 5, 10, 25, 50 kuruş and 1 Turkish lira. Also, the center and ring alloys of the 50 kuruş and 1 Turkish lira coins were reversed.

A new series of banknotes, the ”E-9 Emission Group” entered circulation on 1 January 2009, with the E-8 group ceasing to be valid after 31 December 2009 (although still redeemable at branches of the Central Bank until 31 December 2019). The E-9 banknotes refer to the currency as ”Turkish lira” rather than ”new Turkish lira” and include a new 200-Turkish-lira denomination. The new banknotes have different sizes to prevent forgery. The main specificity of this new series is that each denomination depicts a famous Turkish personality, rather than geographical sites and architectural features of Turkey. The dominant color of the 5-Turkish-lira banknote has been determined as ”purple” on the second series of the current banknotes.

Turkish Lira exchange rates became more stable after 2004. In the following years, the yearly average exchange rate of the lira was as follows:

The current currency sign of Turkish lira was created by the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey in 2012. The new sign was selected after a country-wide contest. The new symbol, created by Tülay Lale thermos stainless steel, is composed of the letter ‘L’ shaped like a half anchor, and embedded double-striped letter ‘T’ angled at 20 degrees.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan announced the new symbol on 1 March 2012. At its unveiling, Erdoğan explained the design as ”the anchor shape hopes to convey that the currency is a ‘safe harbor’ while the upward-facing lines represent its rising prestige”.

In May 2012, the Unicode Technical Committee accepted the encoding of a new character U+20BA Turkish lira sign for the currency sign, which was included in Unicode 6.2 released in September 2012.
