Big Game (horse)

Big Game (1939–1963) was a British Thoroughbred racehorse and sire. In a career that lasted from April 1941 to October 1942, the colt, who was owned by King George VI, ran nine times and won eight races. He was the best British two-year-old colt of his generation in 1941 when he was unbeaten in five starts. Two further wins the following spring including the 2000 Guineas at Newmarket took his unbeaten run to seven, but he suffered his first defeat when odds-on favourite for the wartime „New Derby“. He won his only other race in the Champion Stakes before being retired to stud. Big Game’s royal connections and racecourse success made him one of the most popular horses of his time.

Big Game was a powerfully built dark bay horse standing 16.1 hands high, bred by the British National Stud and leased for his racing career to King George VI. He was sired by the unbeaten Triple Crown winner Bahram, out of Myrobella, an exceptionally fast filly who was rated the best British two-year-old of either sex in 1932. Myrobella was a member of the same thoroughbred family which produced the Epsom Derby winners Sansovino and Snow Knight. Big Game was sent into training with Fred Darling at Beckhampton in Wiltshire.

Big Game’s entire career took place during World War II during which horse racing in Britain was subject to many restrictions. Several major racecourses, including Epsom, Ascot and Doncaster, were closed for the duration of the conflict, either for safety reasons, or because they were being used by the military. Many important races were rescheduled to new dates and venues, often at short notice, and all five of the Classics were run at Newmarket.

Big Game made his first public appearance in the five furlong Hurstbourne Stakes at his local course at Salisbury in April. He started favourite in a field of twenty runners and won easily, ridden by the Champion Jockey Gordon Richards. Richards sustained a badly broken leg when he was kicked by a horse at Salisbury in May, and Big Game was partnered his other races that year by Harry Wragg, a jockey whose tactical skill and timing led to his being nicknamed „The Head Waiter“. The colt ran twice more over the same course and distance, recording easy wins in the Cranbourne Stakes and the Salisbury Plate. On his next appearance, he contested the Coventry Stakes, a race traditionally run at Royal Ascot, but rescheduled to Newmarket, where a crowd of around 15,000 saw him win by five lengths from the future Derby winner Watling Street. On his final start he moved up to six furlongs for the first time as he ran in the Champagne Stakes, which took place that year at Newbury instead of at its usual Doncaster venue. He defeated Watling Street again, but the margin on this occasion was only a short head, leading some to speculate that Big Game was a horse with stamina limitations who would struggle in the following year’s Classics.

In the Free Handicap, a ranking of the season’s best British two-year-olds, he was the highest-rated colt on a mark of 132 pounds, placing him second overall behind his stable companion, the filly Sun Chariot (133).

On his three-year-old debut, Big Game was tried over seven furlongs in a race at Salisbury and won impressively in a course record time. He was then moved up to one mile for the 2000 Guineas which was run that year on Newmarket’s July course rather than the adjoining Rowley Mile. Travel restrictions, which meant that spectators had to walk several miles to reach the course, did not prevent a large attendance. Ridden by Richards, Big Game was made 8/11 favourite against thirteen opponents. He raced just behind the leaders before taking the lead from Ujiji two furlongs from the finish and going clear in the closing stages to win easily by four lengths from Watling Street and Gold Nib. The first „Royal“ win in the race since Minoru in 1909 was reportedly received with „such cheering as had not before been heard in the venerable history of Newmarket“ despite the fact that the King himself was not present.

A month later, he returned to the July Course for the „New Derby“, a wartime substitute for the Epsom Derby. Despite the doubts about his ability to cope with the mile and a half distance, he started at odds of 4/6, making him the shortest-priced „Derby“ favourite since Gainsborough won at odds of 8/13 in 1918. The King and Queen, accompanied by Princess Elizabeth attended the race for the first time since the outbreak of the war, and anticipation of a royal victory was high. Any chance Big Game had of lasting the distance quickly evaporated as he became anxious and distressed in the preliminaries and then fought the attempts of Richards to restrain him, refusing to settle in the early stages of the race. He was beaten a long way from home and finished sixth of the thirteen runners behind Watling Street. The crowd was reportedly „stunned“ by the outcome and greeted the winner in near silence.

Big Game was given another chance to prove himself over middle distances in autumn when he ran in the ten furlong Champion Stakes, run a month earlier than usual on 11 September. He took the lead half a mile from the finish and won decisively from the filly Afterthought and the colt Ujiji who had finished ahead of him when taking third place in the Derby. He was then retired from racing to begin his stud career at the Aislabie Stud at an initial fee of £250.

In their book A Century of Champions, Tony Morris and John Randall rated Big Game the fortieth best British racehorse of the 20th Century and the hundredth best in their global ranking.

Big Game was based at the National Stud and proved to be a successful sire of winners, but not an outstanding one. His most important winners were the Classic-winning fillies Ambiguity (Epsom Oaks) and Queenpot (1000 Guineas) while the best of his colts was probably the unbeaten Combat. He was the damsire of Hethersett (St Leger) and Arctic Explorer (Eclipse Stakes) and was the Leading broodmare sire in Great Britain and Ireland in 1961 and 1962. His son Khorassan was a successful stallion in New Zealand where he sired Tulloch. In the summer of 1963 he was euthanized after being diagnosed as suffering from kidney failure.

Констанс вместе с сёстрами Нормой и Натали осталась на попечении матери, которая зарабатывала на жизнь стиркой. После того как её старшая сестра Норма дебютировала на киноэкранах в качестве актрисы, Констан Толмадж решила последовать её примеру, впервые появившись на киноэкранах в 1914 году.

После двух лет участия в короткометражках она получила свою первую главную роль в эпической ленте Дэвида Уорка Гриффита «Нетерпимость» (1916).

В 1929 году, с появлением звукового кино, Толмадж, как и её сестры, завершила свою карьеру в кино, вложив свои сбережения в недвижимость и прочие инвестиции. В дальнейшие годы у неё были проблемы с алкоголем и наркотиками, что в своей степени сказалось на её здоровье. Актриса четыре раза была замужем, при чём все её браки были бездетными.

Presseclub (Verein)

Ein Presseclub ist in der Regel ein Verein, in dem Journalisten und Medienschaffende zusammenkommen. Das Ziel dieser Presseclubs und das Aufnahmeverfahren regelt meist eine Satzung. Die Mehrzahl der Presseclubs sind eingetragene Vereine (e.V.) und verfolgen gemeinnützige Zwecke. Die Mitglieder können hauptberuflich tätige Journalisten sowie Mitarbeiter von Pressestellen sein. Voraussetzung ist eine beruflich enge Verbindung zu Presse, Rundfunk (Hörfunk und Fernsehen) oder Online-Redaktion.

Dem 1952 in Bonn gegründeten Deutschen Presseclub e.V. gehören vor allem die Hauptstadt-Korrespondenten großer Tageszeitungen beziehungsweise Rundfunk- und Fernsehanstalten an. Daneben gibt es in Deutschland noch derzeit rund 33 lokale, regionale und lobbyistische Presseclubs, die meist in deutschen Großstädten ihren Sitz haben. 21 dieser Clubs haben sich zum regelmäßigen Austausch im Forum Deutscher Presseclubs zusammengeschlossen.

Regelmäßige Treffen der Mitglieder mit Gästen aus Wissenschaft, Wirtschaft und Politik dienen der Information und Kommunikation.

Der erste Presseclub wurde 1859 unter dem Namen Concordia in Wien gegründet.

Zutfeld Wardenberg

Zutfeld Wardenberg (* unbekannt, wahrscheinlich in Stralsund; † 1527 in Rom) war ein deutscher Geistlicher.

Wardenberg entstammte einer alten Stralsunder Patrizierfamilie. Seine Eltern waren Henning Wardenberg (Bürgermeister der Hansestadt Stralsund) und Margaretha Wardenberg.

Er studierte ab 1489 an der Universität Rostock und promovierte dort 1490/91 an der Philosophischen Fakultät zum Bakkalar. Nach seinen Universitätsstudien erhielt er Abschlüsse als Magister (1492/93) und Doktor des kanonischen Rechts. Er wurde Dekan am Güstrower Dom und am Schweriner Dom, Propst in Bützow und Archdiakon in Rostock. Nach einer Zeit an der Universität Greifswald wurde er nach der Ernennung des Schweriner Bischofs Peter Wolkow im Jahr 1508 nach Rom berufen, wo Wardenberg das Amt eines apostolischen Protonotars und Kapellans empfing. Als solcher vertrat Wardenberg die mecklenburgischen Herzöge, aber auch Kaiser Maximilian I., in einigen Prozessen. 1515 wurde er Domherr in Lübeck.

Als der Schweriner Bischof Wolkow, gegen den Wardenberg stark Partei ergriffen hatte, 1516 starb, setzte der mecklenburgische Herzog Heinrich V. seinen erst sieben Jahre alten Sohn Magnus III. als Bischof von Schwerin ein, wobei Wardenberg als Administrator des Jungen de facto das Bischofsamt ausübte. Zugleich wurde er Archdiakon von Tribsees und bischöflicher Offizial. Er nahm seinen Wohnsitz in seiner Heimatstadt Stralsund, wo er sich wegen einiger Übergriffe der geistlichen Gerichtsbarkeit bald beim Rat der Stadt und bei den Bürgern Feindschaften schuf, die teilweise aus den verhängten hohen Strafgebühren resultierten. Der Rat verhängte darauf im Krieg gegen Dänemark 1522 erhöhte Steuern für die Geistlichkeit. Wardenberg weigerte sich, diese zu zahlen, woraufhin ihm schwere Strafen angedroht wurden. Er verließ Stralsund zusammen mit Hippolytus Steinwehr und dessen Vize-Pleban Dr. Otto heimlich, unter Beihilfe von Joachim Wardenberg, dem Bruder Zutfelds, und ging nach Rom.

Von Rom aus betrieb er die Wiederherstellung seiner Rechte und die Befreiung seines Bruders Joachim aus städtischer Gefangenschaft in Stralsund mithilfe des mecklenburgischen Herzogs. Die Bemühungen scheiterten 1525 endgültig, als die Reformation in Stralsund den evangelischen Glauben als Religion einführte.

Wardenberg starb 1527 während der Belagerung und Plünderung Roms (Sacco di Roma).

Wardenberg entstammte einer alten Stralsunder Patrizierfamilie. Seine Eltern waren Henning Wardenberg (Bürgermeister der Hansestadt Stralsund) und Margaretha Wardenberg. Er hatte mindestens einen Bruder, Joachim Wardenberg, sowie drei Schwestern. Magdalena war in erster Ehe mit Rolef Möller, Altermann des Gewandhauses, verheiratet und Mutter des späteren Bürgermeisters Roloff Möller. Catharina war in erster Ehe mit Heinrich Busch, in zweiter Ehe mit Caspar Hoyer verheiratet. Dr. Caspar Hoyer, Domherr am Brixner Dom, ist ein Sohn dieser zweiten Ehe. Hoyer bat den Stralsunder Rat 1540 um Hilfe bei der Erlangung des Erbes seines Onkels (Stadtarchiv Stralsund, Rep. 3, Nr. 1032). Die dritte Schwester Margarethe war mit Gerhard Schröder verheiratet.

Yevgeny Obukhov

World War II

Yevgeny Mikhailovich Obukhov (Russian: Евгений Михайлович Обухов; 1921 – 13 March 1944) was a Red Army sergeant and Hero of the Soviet Union. Obukhov was awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union and the Order of Lenin for his actions during the Battle of the Dnieper. He was killed in action a short time later.

Obukhov was born in 1921 in the village of Malga in Perm Governorate to a peasant family. After graduation from junior high school, he worked in the Vereshchagino regional communications center.

In January 1942, Obukhov was drafted into the Red Army. He fought in combat from February 1942. By the summer of 1943, Obukhov was a squad leader in the 253rd Rifle Division’s 551st Separate Combat Engineer Battalion. He fought in the Battle of the Dnieper during the fall.

On 25 September, Obukhov was appointed commander of a pontoon boat for the Dnieper crossing. He first reached the river’s west bank with 25 soldiers. While still crossing the river, the pontoon came under German fire while 100 meters from the shore. Bullet holes were causing the pontoon to sink when Obukhov reportedly began patching holes with overcoats and caps. He reportedly ordered the soldiers to do the same and they were able to successfully cross the river, keeping the pontoon afloat. During the landing, the infantry officer commanding the soldiers was wounded when German troops opened fire with automatic weapons and Obukhov reportedly replaced him in command. Obukhov organized machine gun fire and was able to neutralize the German positions. Another German machine gun was firing from a bunker, preventing the crossing of more pontoon boats. Obukhov reportedly crawled up to the bunker and destroyed the machine gun, killing its crew with two anti-tank grenades. Obukhov then repaired his pontoon and reportedly managed to cross the Dnieper again, ferrying two antitank guns and 50 soldiers.

In the afternoon, Obukhov ferried 12 wounded soldiers across the Dnieper while under fire. He reportedly crossed the Dnieper 30 times over the next two days and reportedly ferried over 650 soldiers and 6 anti-tank guns. On 24 October, he was awarded the Order of the Patriotic War 2nd class for his actions. In December, Obukhov was transferred with the division to the Leningrad Front. On 10 January 1944, he was awarded the title Hero of the Soviet Union and the Order of Lenin for his actions on the Dnieper. Obukhov was killed in action on 14 March during a battle in the village of Maloye Fomkino, Pskov Oblast. He was buried in the nearby village of Keb.

Cranborne er en landsby i Dorset, England. Den ligger i, og har gitt navn til, kalkstensplatået Cranborne Chase.

Landsbyen ble grunnlagt i angelsaksisk tid, og er nevnt i Domesday Book som Creneburne. Navnet betyr «tranenes elv». Landsbykirken er fra normannisk tid.

Flere konger har bodd på en jakthytte i landsbyen i forbindelse med jakktturer til Cranborne Chase. Blant disse finner man Johan, Henrik VIII og Jakob I. Jakthytten ble bygget om av Robert Cecil, 1. jarl av Salisbury mellom 1607 og 1611, og er kjernen i hans herregård.

I middelalderen var Cranborne en markedsby, og det var forlagt en garnison der for å beskytte kongen når han besøkte stedet. På et tidspunkt hadde den et nesten like høyt befolkningstall som London. Senere dalte stedets betydning, og bycharteret ble inndratt samtidig som andre byer i området vokste seg større.


Great Bend, North Dakota

The post office was later moved in 1882 to a site closer to Great Bend and was disbanded on July 12, 1883. Worner was instrumental in the town’s founding and development, serving as one of the first station agents for the Northern Pacific Railroad, operated the first general store, and served as one of the town’s first postmasters.
