It is seen as a counter-project to the plan to build the Visaginas nuclear power plant in Lithuania and is considered not only as an energy, but also as a geopolitical project. In June 2013 the construction was temporary stopped for re-designing the project.Contents 1 Motivation 2 History 3 Technical features 4 Project development 5 References 6 External linksMotivation The nuclear power plant is foreseen to secure power supply for the Kaliningrad Oblast and to replace natural gas-based power generation. It has been mentioned that the Kaliningrad Oblast needs the project “because for the time being it imports energy from NATO countries.” The excess electricity was planned to be exported into the EU market. According to Sergey Boyarkin, deputy general director of Rosenergoatom, the first reactor would be sufficient for Kaliningrad Oblast’s needs, while electricity produced by the second reactor would be exported when not filling gaps in generation caused by refuelling and downtime. Lithuania, Poland and Germany were named as potential export markets. Sergey Boyarkin has said that the shutdown of Ignalina. thanks wikipedia.
Walter Schieber (13 September 1896 – 29 June 1960) was an SS Brigadeführer in Nazi Germany, who during the Second World War served as head of the Armaments Supply Office. In 1943, Adolf Hitler awarded Schieber the War Merit Cross. After the war, the US government became interested in hiring Schieber for scientific research purposes. A 1947 U.S. Air Force memo stated that “Dr. Schieber’s talents are of so important a nature to the U.S. that they go far to override any consideration of his political background”. In the end, Schieber’s profile meant it was not possible to bring him to America, but he was employed by the US for ten years in chemical warfare research in West Germany.

Lebronnecia kokioides Conservation statusEndangered (IUCN 2.3) Scientific classification Kingdom: Plantae (unranked): Angiosperms (unranked): Eudicots (unranked): Rosids Order: Malvales Family: Malvaceae Genus: Lebronnecia Fosberg & Sachet Species: L. kokioides Binomial name Lebronnecia kokioides Fosberg & SachetLebronnecia is a monotypic genus of flowering plants in the family Malvaceae. The sole species is Lebronnecia kokioides, a very rare flowering shrub. Distribution Only a few hundred specimens are known to exist. The plant was first described in 1966, after a single tree with a few seedlings was discovered on Tahuata, an island in the Marquesas group of French Polynesia that had been severely deforested by livestock: cattle, goats, horses, and pigs. Further specimens were later found on the nearby island of Mohotani, uninhabited by humans, but similarly deforested by sheep, who fortunately seem to avoid eating the plant. It is now being cultivated in Hawaii. References ^ Florence, J. 1998. Lebronnecia kokioides. The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species 1998. Downloaded on 13 October 2015. ^ Wendel, J. F., Brubaker, C.

Blanche Marvin MBE, (born 1925, formerly Blanche Zohar), is a UK-based, American theatre critic, producer, playwright and former actor. Marvin was born in New York City, New York, in January 1925. She created the Empty Space Peter Brook award in 1991 and funds it personally. A friend of Tennessee Williams, she says the playwright used her name for the character Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire, named the character’s sister Stella after Marvin’s former name “Zohar” (which means “Star”), and took the play’s line “I’ve always depended on the kindness of strangers” from something she said to him. She was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in 2010, for services to theatre, and appeared as a “castaway” on the BBC Radio programme Desert Island Discs on 16 November 2012. A widow, she lives in St John’s Wood, north London. Bibliography—— (1990). Four Plays for Children. Merri-Mimes. ISBN 978-1872693002.

Car hawking, or drive-by falconry is a modern falconry technique which relies upon the use of a motor car or other motor vehicle as a base from which to hunt wild quarry species with a trained raptor. Typically, the falconer will drive around in a car, seeking suitable small game in the immediate vicinity of the road. Once an appropriate target has been selected, the raptor is then slipped from the window of the moving vehicle as it passes by in order that it might engage with its prey. Car hawking provides an advantage over more traditional methods of falconry in that the hawk is already moving at a considerable speed, with added momentum upon exiting the vehicle and as the car acts as cover, it has an enormous element of surprise over the quarry, giving it little or no time to react and potentially escape. Numerous videos exist on the internet of people successfully utilizing this method, flying Harris hawks and goshawks against feral pigeons and corvids in both urban and rural areas. Legality of this practice varies by location and protected status of the quarry and some falconers consider car hawking to be extremely unsporting.
