Verflixte Gastfreundschaft

Verflixte Gastfreundschaft (Orginaltitel: Our Hospitality) eine US-amerikanische Stummfilm-Westernkomödie von und mit Buster Keaton aus dem Jahr 1923. Hier setzte Keaton sein Bemühen um eine glaubwürdige Geschichte, in den Verlauf der Handlung eingebaute Gags sowie historische Authentizität erstmals konsequent um. Die Komödie stand somit im Gegensatz zu den allermeisten der damaligen Slapstick-Komödien und gilt daher in der Entwicklung der Filmkomödie als besonders bedeutsam.

Amerika, um 1810: Zwischen den Familien McKay und Canfield herrscht seit Generationen eine Blutfehde. Zu Beginn des Filmes erschießen sich der Vater des einjährigen William McKay sowie der verfeindete James Canfield gegenseitig. Als einziger Überlebender seiner Sippe wächst William anschließend bei einer entfernt lebenden Tante auf. Zwanzig Jahre später ist er volljährig geworden und bekommt den Landbesitz der McKays übertragen. Er fährt weitgehend unbedacht in die Heimat seiner Familie, auch weil William nur einen groben Überblick von der Blutfehde hat. Auf der Fahrt dahin verliebt er sich in Virginia, die zufällig mitreisende Tochter der feindlichen Familie Canfield. Sie lädt den netten Mann in das Haus ihrer Familie ein. Doch Joseph Canfield, der Familienpatriach, sinnt noch immer auf Rache, weil einst sein Bruder James Canfield zusammen mit Williams Vater in einem Schusswechsel starb. Virginias Brüder erkennen Williams Identität und bei seinem Besuch im Haus der Canfields werden ihre Versuche ihm nach dem Leben zu trachten nur vom traditionellen Gesetz der Gastfreundschaft gebremst, solange William das Haus nicht verlässt.
William, der erst nach längerer Zeit erfährt, dass es sich bei seinen Gastgebern um die Canfields handelt, bleibt tagelang bei ihnen. So können ihn Joseph und seine Söhne nicht erschießen. Außerdem stellt sich Williams Landsitz als kleine Hütte heraus, die nach 20 Jahren ohne Bewohner völlig verfallen ist. Nach haarsträubenden Gefahren und abenteuerlichen Verfolgungsjagden muss er Virginia an einem Wasserfall das Leben retten. Es gelingt William schließlich, die Fehde zu beenden, indem er das Mädchen ohne Wissen ihrer Familie mit Hilfe des alten Pfarrers heiratet. Zunächst ist Joseph Canfield wütend, doch dann sieht er ein Schild mit dem Titel love thy neighbor und willigt zum Frieden ein. Sie legen schließlich die Waffen beiseite, wobei sich herausstellt, dass William fast mit dem gesamten Waffenkabinett der Canfields ausgestattet war.
Die Geschichte um die Feindschaft zwischen den Familien „McKay“ und „Canfield“ basiert auf der echten Familienfehde der McCoys und Hatfields.
Im Film selbst spielt nicht nur Joe Keaton mit, der Vater Buster Keatons, der auch in vielen weiteren Filmen seines Sohnes mitwirkt. Keaton steht auch mit seiner damaligen Ehefrau Natalie Talmadge – welche die weibliche Hauptrolle verkörpert – zum einzigen Mal gemeinsam in einem Langfilm vor der Kamera (sie drehten auch zwei Kurzfilme, in denen Talmadge aber jeweils nur kurz auftrat). Weiterhin im Prolog zu sehen: Busters Sohn James, damals noch ein Baby Rucksack MCM, als der sehr junge Willie McKay.
Während der Produktion erlitt Keatons Langzeitfilmpartner und Lieblingsbösewicht Joe Roberts einen Schlaganfall. Er konnte zwar seine Rolle als Patriarch der Canfields noch zu Ende spielen, verstarb jedoch etwa einen Monat später nach einem weiteren Schlaganfall.
Für Buster Keaton, der seinen Ruhm auch darauf aufbaute, die gefährlichsten Stunts selbst auszuführen, wurde es in dieser Produktion zwei Mal höchst gefährlich. So riss beim Dreh im Truckee River ein Draht, an dem Keaton zur Sicherheit festgebunden war. Er wurde von der Stromschnelle erfasst. Da der Kameramann die Anweisung hatte, weiterzudrehen, egal, was passiert, findet sich dieser Moment auch im fertigen Film. Risikoreich verlief auch der legendäre Stunt am Wasserfall: Der an einem Stück Seil festgebundene Willie McKay schwingt sich in dem Moment, als sie den Wasserfall hinabzustürzen droht, seiner Geliebten entgegen. Es gelingt ihm, sie an den Händen zu fassen und am sicheren Felsvorsprung abzusetzen. Die Geliebte wurde von einer Puppe gedoubelt und auch der Wasserfall auf dem Studiogelände nachgebaut. Dennoch schluckte Keaton, als er unter dem Wasserfall hing, so viel Wasser, dass sein Magen ausgepumpt werden musste.
Für das Szenenbild war im übrigen Fred Gabourie zuständig.
In seinem zweiten abendfüllenden Film (nach Three Ages) konzentrierte sich Buster Keaton erstmals auf das Drama seiner Geschichte und verzichtete auf absurde Gags. Er war der Überzeugung, das Publikum würde einer Geschichte nicht mehr folgen, sollte ihm ein Gag unglaubwürdig erscheinen. Auch in späteren Filmen versuchte er, diesem Grundsatz treu zu bleiben: Im folgenden Sherlock, Jr. kommen zwar unmögliche Gags vor, doch nur innerhalb der geträumten Handlungsebene. Laut Jim Kline fällt Our Hospitality für eine Komödie streckenweise fast zu ernsthaft aus. Bezeichnend für den neuen Stil – in seinen Kurzfilmen bemühte er sich regelrecht um Absurdität und Übertreibung – ist der Prolog des Films. Die Feindschaft der beiden Häuser McKay und Canfield wird in einer betont tragischen Szene dramatisiert, die sich jedem Anflug von Komik verschließt.
Das Bemühen um Glaubwürdigkeit spiegelt sich auch in der authentischen Ausstattung des in den 1830er Jahren spielenden Films. Besonders auffällig dabei: Der originalgetreue Nachbau einer der ersten Dampflokomotiven im Linienverkehr, The Rocket. Wegen seiner ambitionierten Bildgestaltung zählt Our Hospitality zu Keatons am schönsten fotografierten Filmen.
„Zweiter Langspielfilm von Buster Keaton, eine der köstlichsten Komödien der Filmgeschichte, voller genialer Gags, atemraubender Artistik und märchenhaft versponnener Poesie.“

. 943–945) was the second monarch of Goryeo. He was preceded by King Taejo and succeeded by Jeongjong, 3rd Monarch of Goryeo.

Hyejong was born to King Taejo and his second wife, Janghwa of the “Oh” clan. She was the daughter of the Magistrate of Naju, Oh Daryeon. Taejo met and married her while serving in Naju as a general of Taebong under Gung Ye.
In 921, Hyejong was proclaimed Crown Prince and Royal Successor with support from General Bak Sul-Hui. Almost immediately after being named Crown Prince, Hyejong followed his father Taejo into battle against Later Baekje and played a major role in numerous victories. In 943, Hyejong rose to the throne upon his father’s death.
Hyejong’s reign was marked with conspiracy and power struggles among Taejo’s sons. The first of these conspiracies was led by Princes Wang Yo and Wang So, sons of Taejo and his third consort, Queen Sinmyeongsunseong of the Chungju Yu clan, which possessed considerable political influence. Upon realizing the conspiracy by the two princes, Wang Gyu warned Hyejong of the conspiracy, but plotted to put his grandson on the throne when Hyejong did nothing to stop the conspiracy of the two princes.
Hyejong died in 945, during the second year of his reign from disease. He was succeeded by his brother Jeongjong, 3rd Monarch of Goryeo.

Games and applications for Windows Live Messenger

There are various games and applications available in Windows Live Messenger that can be accessed via the conversation window by clicking the games icon and challenging your “buddy”.

Tic-Tac-Toe is a game where you place your letter (either an X or an O) on part of the board, which consists of a 3×3 grid. The aim of the game is to complete 3 squares in a row, either vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.
This game, included since MSN Messenger version 6, is based on the Solitaire game that is part of Windows. It is online, 2 player, and features 2 decks (a triple deck, and a special 13-card pile). Each player must race to remove cards of the special 13-card pile, and put their cards on the shared piles/suit stacks (e.g. putting an ace of any suit on the pile, but putting 2’s of a suit may only be possible after the ace of the suit is currently on the pile, not covered by any other cards). There are eight different suit stacks possible. Other differences between this and normal Solitaire are that not just Kings, but any card can be put on a blank row stack, and there are four black row stacks to put on instead of seven. The game ends if one player removes all cards of the 13-card pile, or when both players are “stuck” and cannot remove/put up any more cards, and manually end the game using the End Game button. This game is similar to the game nertz.
A standard two-player game of checkers.

. It is played in real time and individually, with scores being compared at the end.
In a twist on the original game, players must now locate flags and whoever has found the most by the end wins (i.e. the first person to get 26 or more mines wins). There are 51 mines on the map. If you find a flag you get to continue, otherwise it becomes your opponent’s turn. Players get the one-off option to “bomb” a 5×5 area if they are losing, and get all the flags in that area (hence it is possible to get more than 26 mines).

. His final teaching post was headmaster of Adelphi Academy in Brooklyn, New York, from 1933–1942.
He served as a lieutenant colonel in public relations for the U.S. Army, beginning in 1942.[citation needed]
While teaching at the Blake School for Boys in Minneapolis, it was suggested by a student, whose father was a radio executive, that Slater had the voice and knowledge to be a sports announcer. His first network break came while at Adelphi Academy, when Ted Husing asked Slater to call an Army-Navy football game.
Slater hosted/emceed many early television shows:
Slater was the primary voice of Paramount News reels for many years beginning in 1936. Slater covered the 1936 Summer Olympics for NBC, announced for the New York Yankees and New York Giants baseball teams, the 1937 Sugar Bowl, West Point, Yale, Penn and other college football games, and later, tennis from Wimbledon and Forest Hills.

James Dundas, Lord Arniston

Sir James Dundas, Lord Arniston (died 1679) was a Scottish politician and judge. He served as a shire commissioner to the Scottish Parliament.

He was son of Sir James Dundas of Arniston, Midlothian, governor of Berwick under James I, by Marie, daughter of George Home of Wedderburn. He was educated at the University of St. Andrews. In 1639, he signed the national covenant; in 1640 he was appointed an elder of the church, and on 16 November 1641, he was knighted by Charles I.
He represented Edinburgh in parliament in 1648, and was commissioner for war within the sheriffdom of that city between 1643 and 1648, sat on a commission composed partly of lawyers and partly of laymen, to which the liquidation of the insolvent estates of the Earl of Stirling and Lord Alexander was referred in 1644; on a parliamentary committee of eighteen appointed to consider of dangers threatening religion, the covenant, and the monarchy

, and how to meet them; on another “close and secret” committee of six empowered to take steps rendered necessary by the presence of garrisons of “malignants and sectaries” in Berwick and Carlisle in March 1648; and on 11 May was appointed one of the “committee of estates” in which supreme power was vested during the adjournment of parliament. The same year he was also a member of a committee for considering of ecclesiastical matters in conference with the commissioners of the kirk, and was added to the “commission for the plantation of the kirks”. He signed the solemn league and covenant, apparently with some reluctance, in 1650. From that date his history is a blank until we find him again a member of the commission for the plantation of kirks in 1661, and also one of the commissioners for raising the sum of £40,000 granted to the king in that year.
Though not a trained lawyer, he was nominated an ordinary lord of session, and assumed the title of Lord Arniston, on 16 May 1662; and having satisfied the court of his knowledge of law was admitted to the College of Justice on 4 June. His tenure of office, however, was brief. In 1663 a statute was passed requiring all public officials to subscribe a declaration, affirming the duty of passive obedience, and renouncing the solemn league and covenant. Being unable conscientiously to sign the declaration, Dundas sent in his resignation. It was signed by ten of the Judges on 10 November 1663, Dundas being absent. Though the time for signature was extended in his case until 8 January 1664, and then for a further period of eighteen months, and though he was frequently pressed to reconsider the matter, Dundas steadily refused to sign unless he were permitted to qualify the clause in the declaration abjuring the covenant by the words, “in so far as it led to deeds of actual rebellion”. The compromise was not accepted, but it was notified to him that if he would sign the declaration as it stood the king would permit him to make reservation in private audience. To this Dundas replied: “If my subscription is to be public, I cannot be satisfied that the salvo should be latent”. On 28 August 1665, Sir John Lockhart of Castlehill was appointed to succeed him.
Dundas died at Arniston in October 1679.
He married, first, in 1641, Marion, daughter of Robert Boyd, 8th Lord Boyd, by whom he had one son, Robert Dundas, also a lord of session, and three daughters; secondly, Janet, daughter of Sir Adam Hepburn of Humbie, and widow of Sir John Cockburn of Ormiston, by whom he had three sons; thirdly, in 1666, Helen, daughter of Sir James Skene, president of the court of session, and widow of Sir Charles Erskine of Alva.

Donneloye

Donneloye is a municipality in the district of Jura-Nord Vaudois of the canton of Vaud in Switzerland.

Donneloye is first mentioned in 1150 as Donnolui.
In the 12th century the village was dominated by a branch of a noble family from Goumoens by the name of Donneloye.
The river Mentue flows through the commune. The first stone bridge over this river was built during the Bernese period in 1754. Later becoming too narrow, it was widened in 1892 to form the present bridge on the Yverdon/Moudon road.
On 11 March 2007, the community decided to merge their commune with those of the neighbouring Gossens and Mézery-près-Donneloye communes, with effect from 1 January 2008.
The municipality Prahins merged on 1 January 2012 into Donneloye.
The château of Donneloye was probably first built in the 15th century and passed through many hands from the 16th to the 19th centuries. Charles III, Duke of Savoy sold it in 1534 to Marguerite de Bellevaux, who sold it on to Guillaume Regnauld who in turn sold it to Marguerite de Chanéaz in 1597.
After passing through other hands, the château was purchased in 1652 by Jean-Philippe Loys, whose family possessed it until the end of the 18th century, when the conseiller d’état Jacques-François Viquerat (1838–1904) bought it.
The building today consists of a principal rectangular body divided by a wide central corridor. At the end of the present garden is a massive round tower, probably a dovecote

Henry Carey, 1st Baron Hunsdon

Henry Carey, 1st Baron Hunsdon KG (4 March 1526 – 23 July 1596), was an English nobleman and courtier. He was the patron of Lord Chamberlain’s Men, William Shakespeare’s playing company. The son of Mary Boleyn, the sister of Anne Boleyn, he was a cousin of Elizabeth I. Since his mother was also a mistress to King Henry VIII of England, some historians have speculated that he might have been an illegitimate child of Henry VIII.

Henry Carey was the second child of Sir William Carey and Mary Boleyn, the sister of the later queen, Anne Boleyn. William Carey died suddenly from the sweating sickness on 23 June 1528 when Henry was only two. Carey and his elder sister Catherine came under the wardship of their maternal aunt Anne Boleyn, who was engaged to Henry VIII at the time. The children still had active contact with their mother, who remained on good terms with her sister, until Mary’s secret elopement with a soldier, William Stafford (later Lord of Chebsey) in 1535.
Anne Boleyn acted as her nephew’s patron and had him provided with an excellent education in a prestigious Cistercian monastery. He was also tutored at some point by French poet Nicholas Bourbon, whose life had been saved from the French Inquisition after Queen Anne’s intervention.
Henry’s royal aunt was beheaded in May 1536, when he was ten years old. His mother died seven years later in 1543 on her estate in Essex. On 21 May 1545 he married Anne Morgan, daughter of Sir Thomas Morgan, of Arkestone, Herefordshire, and Elizabeth Whitney.
Carey served twice as Member of Parliament, representing Buckingham during 1547–1550—entering when he was 21—and 1554–1555. He was knighted in November 1558 and created Baron by his first cousin Elizabeth I of England on 13 January 1559. His sister, Catherine, was one of Elizabeth’s favourite ladies-in-waiting and the Queen was very generous to her Boleyn relatives. His Baronial estate consisted of the manors of Hunsdon and Eastwick, Hertfordshire and possessions in Kent. Hunsdon had previously belonged to Elizabeth’s predecessor Mary I. He was also granted an annual pension of £400. On 31 October 1560, Henry was appointed Master of the Queen’s Hawks, making him “the Queen’s master falconer.” On 20 April 1561, Henry also became a Knight of the Garter.
Elizabeth appointed Carey Captain of the Gentlemen Pensioners in 1564, a position making him effectively her personal bodyguard for four years

. He accompanied her to Cambridge University in 1564, for which he was awarded a MA. On 25 August 1568, Henry was appointed Governor of Berwick-upon-Tweed, Northumberland.
The year 1569 was the beginning of the Rising of the North (November 1569 – February 1570), a major uprising instigated by Thomas Howard, 4th Duke of Norfolk, Charles Neville, 6th Earl of Westmorland and Thomas Percy, 7th Earl of Northumberland. The rebellion was expecting the support of the Roman Catholic Pope Pius V.
Henry was appointed Lieutenant General of the forces loyal to the Queen. His February victory over Sir Leonard Dacre was instrumental in crushing the rebellion. Nearly three thousand rebels ambushed Henry Carey’s party of half that size, but Carey was nonetheless victorious in fending off the assault. A number of the rebels crossed the border to Scotland but were there targeted by the forces of the Scottish Regent. Henry could still appreciate the courage of Dacre’s soldiers. In his letter to the Queen detailing the victory, he made mention of the rebel charge “the bravest charge that ever I saw!”. He was rewarded with a personal note of thanks from Queen Elizabeth I that read in part . .
“I doubt much, my Harry, whether that the victory were given me, more joyed me, or that you were by God appointed the instrument of my glory; and I assure you that for my country’s good, the first must suffice, but for my heart’s contention the second pleased me . . you have done much for honour . . Your loving kinswoman, Elizabeth R.”
The victorious Henry was appointed Warden of the Eastern March and represented the Queen in signing a treaty with the Regent on 23 October 1571. On 31 July 1574 Henry became Keeper of Somerset House, the property of the Queen before ascending the throne. He was then named Privy Counsellor in 1577. On 16 January 1581, Henry was appointed Captain-General of the forces responsible for the safety of English borders. He was appointed Lord Chamberlain of the Household in July 1585 and would hold this position until his death. This did not prevent Elizabeth from appointing him Lord Chamberlain Lieutenant, Principal Captain and Governor of the army “for the defence and surety of our own Royal Person”. The appointment occurred on 20 July 1588 in Tilbury.
Henry also served as Chief Justice in Eyre, south of the River Trent between 1589 and his death. He was Joined Commissioner of the Office Earl Marshal and High Steward of Ipswich and Doncaster. He served as Chief Justice of the Royal Forces between 20 December 1591 and his death. On 2 March 1592 Henry was appointed High Steward of Oxford for life.
Beginning in 1587, Carey began an affair with Emilia Lanier (1569-1645), daughter of a Venetian-born court musician and marrano (a Jew forced to convert to Christianity but secretly Jewish). Carey, 45 years older than Lanier, was Elizabeth’s Lord Chamberlain at the time of their affair and a patron of the arts and theatre (he was the patron of Shakespeare’s theatre company, known as the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, but not until two years after their affair was over).
Records indicate that Carey gave her a pension of £40 a year. Lanier apparently enjoyed her time as Carey’s mistress. An entry from Forman’s diary reads “[Lanier] hath bin married 4 years/ The old Lord Chamberlain kept her longue She was maintained in great pomp… she hath 40£ a yere & was welthy to him that married her in monie & Jewells”. In 1592, when she was 23, Lanier became pregnant with Carey’s child. Carey paid her off with a sum of money and then married her off to her first cousin once removed, Alfonso Lanier, a Queen’s musician. Church records show the two were married in St. Botolph’s church, Aldgate, on 18 October 1592. Lanier gave birth to Carey’s son, Henry, in 1593 (presumably named after his father).
Henry Carey died at Somerset House, Strand on 23 July 1596 and was buried on 12 August 1596 at Westminster Abbey. On his deathbed his cousin Elizabeth I offered to create him Earl of Wiltshire; however, he refused, saying:
Two of his sons, George, and John, successively followed him as Baron Hunsdon.
Henry Carey’s mother, Mary Boleyn, was mistress to King Henry VIII from 1520. The exact dates when the affair started and ended are unknown, although it is believed to have ended by the time Henry Carey was born on 4 March 1526.
Contemporary rumours stated that Henry was an illegitimate child of Henry VIII. Some 10 years after the child was born, John Hales, vicar of Isleworth, remarked that he had met a “young Master Carey,” whom some monks believed to be the king’s son. However, as Eric Ives has pointed out, the vicar was hostile towards the Boleyn family and may just have been causing trouble.[citation needed] The idea that Carey was Henry VIII’s secret son has inspired modern historical fiction, such as the novel The Other Boleyn Girl. Alison Weir in her biography of Mary Boleyn concluded that the preponderance of evidence points to Henry Carey’s sister, Catherine Carey, as being the only offspring of Mary’s relations with Henry VIII.
Henry Carey and Ann Morgan’s marriage resulted in the birth of sixteen children.
In addition, Henry had several illegitimate children, including Valentine Carey, who eventually served in the military under his father and achieved fairly high rank.

Lightning Switch

Lightning Switch is a wireless and batteryless remote control switch technology manufactured by PulseSwitch Systems, a member of The Face Companies Group of Norfolk, Virginia. It is most commonly used as a wireless light switch.

The Lightning Switch transmitter requires no outside source of electricity. Each time the transmitter button is pressed, the transmitter converts the mechanical energy supplied by the user’s finger into electricity to power a radio transmission to a receiver/relay through the use of a piezoelectric generator (brand name: Lightning) originally invented by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. This technology is described in the 2005 issue of NASA Spinoff magazine.
The Lightning Switch is featured in the 2007 Concept Home in Omaha, Nebraska, part of the Partnership for Advancing Technology in Housing (PATH) coordinated by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development.
Lightning products were studied by HUD consultant Newport Partners, LLC of Davidsonville, Maryland USA.
Lightning Switch won a 2006 NOVA Award, the highest international honor for innovation in the construction industry

In October 2007, NASA cited the employment of the Lightning piezoelectric generator in the Lightning Switch as one of the top 20 spinoff technologies produced over the previous five years, based on factors such as quality of life, economic benefit, and value back to NASA.
In March 2008, the Lightning Switch was chosen as the winner of the 2008 SPIE Smart Structures Product Implementation Award.
In 2012, the Lightning Switch was “Space Certified” by the Space Foundation.
