Everstein (Adelsgeschlecht)

April 30th, 2016

Die Edelherren und Grafen von Everstein nannten sich seit 1116 nach den Burgen auf dem Großen und Kleinen Everstein (Burg Everstein) am Burgberg im Landkreis Holzminden, Niedersachsen. Die Familie derer von Everstein teilte sich etwa um 1200 in mehrere Linien auf. Die Linien Ohsen und Holzminden starben im 14. Jahrhundert aus, eine weitere Linie in ihrem niedersächsischen Zweig ebenso am Ende des 14. Jahrhunderts und in ihrem dänischen Zweig im Jahr 1453.

Kurz vor 1122 stiftete Adalbert von Eberstein im vogtländischen Dobnagau in der Nähe seines Schlosses die Johanniskirche in Plauen.
Als Anhänger und Verwandte der Staufer erlebten die Eversteiner nach der Entmachtung Heinrichs des Löwen im Jahre 1180 zunächst einen glanzvollen Aufstieg. Im Grenzgebiet zwischen den vier Diözesen Mainz, Paderborn, Hildesheim und Minden baute die Familie ihren Eigenbesitz im Weserbergland zwischen Höxter, Holzminden und Hameln zu einer kleinen Landesherrschaft aus. Hinzu kamen noch Güter an der Diemel bis Marsberg 2016 fußball trikots online, bei Warburg und Scherfede, im Eichsfeld, Vogtland sowie Pommern. Sie waren verwandt mit den im Vogtland, im Dobnagau bei Plauen, begüterten Ebersteinern oder Eversteinern, deren Besitz später von ihnen zu Lehen ging.
Nach dem Sturz Heinrichs des Löwen im Jahre 1180 wurde Albrecht III. von Everstein Lehnsmann des Kölner Erzbischofs Philipp I. von Heinsberg, der von Kaiser Friedrich Barbarossa zum Herzog von Westfalen und Engern ernannt worden war. Bereits 20 Jahre später unterstanden ihm um Volkmarsen herum die Orte Wettesingen, Breuna, Rhöda, Ehringen und Wormeln.
1283 suchte Konrad von Everstein beim Erzbischof Siegfried von Köln Schutz und übertrug ihm Aerzen. Doch auch der Erzbischof konnte die Einnahme der Burg Everstein, zwischen Bevern und Negenborn, durch die Welfen nicht verhindern. Nach dem Untergang der Staufer erzwangen die Welfen 1284 den Verkauf der Burg Everstein. 1285 übertrug Otto von Everstein dem Kloster Loccum Güter bei Gestorf.
Im Jahre 1403 schloss der söhnelose Graf Hermann VII. von Everstein eine Erbverbrüderung mit den Grafen zur Lippe, der zufolge der zwischen Hameln und Höxter gelegene und mit der Burg Polle an Lippe grenzende eversteinische Herrschaftsbereich an Lippe fallen sollte. 1405 wurde die Burg Sternberg von den Grafen von Schaumburg an Hermann von Everstein und an Bernhard VI. zur Lippe verpfändet, welche sich in der Folgezeit über das Sternberger Pfand zerstritten, sodass Hermann wieder aus dem Vertrag ausstieg. Die sogenannte Eversteinsche Erbfolgefehde dauerte bis 1407. In ihrem Verlauf drangen die Welfen weit bis ins lippisches Territorium vor. Sie endete mit der Einnahme der Burg Sternberg durch Truppen des Herzogs Heinrich von Braunschweig.
1408 kam es zum Friedensschluss. Hermann VII. von Everstein verlobte seine erst vier Jahre alte Tochter Elisabeth mit Otto IV. von Braunschweig-Lüneburg, Sohn des Herzogs Bernhard I., und gab Aerzen als Mitgift dazu. Damit hatten die Welfen den Anschluss der Grafschaft Everstein an Braunschweig-Lüneburg erreicht. Elisabeth wurde im gleichen Jahr mit Herzog Otto IV. verheiratet.
Hermann VII. von Everstein gilt als letzter seines Geschlechts und ging in die Verbannung.
Zwischen 1409 und 1414 erbauten die Grafen von Everstein auf dem Berg Woldau über dem Tal der Emmer die Burg Hemersen, die ab 1437 in den Besitz der Ritterfamilie Klencke überging, die die Hämelschenburg erbaute.

Daraufhin zog seine Frau mit ihren vier Kindern Albert, Ludwig, Otto und Bernhard in das Bistum Cammin. 1274 wurde Otto von seinem Onkel, dem Camminer Bischof Hermann von Gleichen, mit Naugard, Massow und Gülzow belehnt. Otto wurde Begründer des Hauses Eberstein-Naugard.

Transport between India and Bangladesh

April 30th, 2016

Transport between India and Bangladesh bears much historical and political significance for both countries, which possessed no ground transport links for 43 years, starting with the partition of Bengal and India in 1947. The Kolkata–Dhaka Bus (1999) and the Dhaka–Agartala Bus (2001) are the primary road links between the two countries; a direct Kolkata-Agartala running through Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh is being developed by both countries. The Maitreyi Express (Friendship Express) was launched to revive a railway link between Kolkata and Dhaka that had been shut for 43 years.

The partition of Bengal and India on August 15, 1947 led to the establishment of the Indian state of West Bengal; East Bengal became a province of the state of Pakistan. The hostile bilateral relations between the two nations made transport links very limited, despite the cultural and commercial links between West and East Bengal. At the outbreak of the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965, the only railway link between Dhaka and Kolkata was shut down, and not resumed until 2008 with the launch of the Maitreyi Express.
After the establishment of Bangladesh following the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, bilateral relations improved considerably, but the two governments moved slowly on implementing a 1980 agreement on improving transport links. In the 1990s, the Indian and Bangladeshi governments collaborated to open bus services between Kolkata, the capital of West Bengal and one of the largest cities in India, and Dhaka, the capital and largest city of Bangladesh. In 2001, another bus service was launched to connect Dhaka with Agartala, the capital of the Indian state of Tripura the second largest city of Northeast India that borders Bangladesh in the east.
Since the 1980s, the Indian and Bangladeshi governments have sought to negotiate an agreement permitting commercial vehicles to pass through Bangladeshi highways in order to reach the northeastern states of India from the west; a concept described in India as the “Bangla Corridor.” Such an arrangement is being promoted for its benefit to bilateral commerce, the transport cost reduction for Indian businesses and additional revenue for Bangladesh. In 2006, both governments began working on a proposal to provide a bus service directly connecting Kolkata with Agartala, the capital of the Indian state of Tripura, which borders eastern Bangladesh. As of 2007, travelling distance through Indian territory is an estimated 1,700 km (1,056 mi), but a direct road link via Dhaka would shorten the travelling distance to an estimated 400 km (249 mi), considerably reducing the costs of transport for Indian businesses

, which have to transport goods and services through the narrow “Chicken’s Neck” territory that is bordered by northern Bangladesh and southern Nepal. However, such an arrangement has been politically sensitive in Bangladesh.
On June 2 2015, the first trial run of a direct bus between Kolkata and Agartala ran, a route distance of 500 km, as compared to the 1650 km if it ran through the Chicken’s Neck to remain within India. This bus made an overnight stop in Dhaka. General service began on June 7, and the first bus was flagged off by political leaders including Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of Bangladesh Sheikh Hasina, and Chief Minister of West Bengal Mamata Bannerjee.
The Govt. sponsored service between Kolkata and Dhaka was launched on June 19, 1999; the inaugural bus was received in Dhaka by Sheikh Hasina, Prime Minister of Bangladesh. The inauguration took place just months following the launch of the Delhi-Lahore Bus between Pakistan and India. Although receiving lesser media attention and fanfare, the bus service has expanded its services to meet higher demand. While boosting commerce between the two nations, the bus also enables people with families that were separated with the partition of India, to meet relatives and visit the land of their birth and heritage. The Kolkata-Dhaka bus service has remained uninterrupted, unlike the Delhi-Lahore bus that was suspended during the 2001-2002 India-Pakistan standoff.
The Kolkata-Dhaka Govt. bus is operated jointly by the West Bengal Surface Transport Corporation and the Bangladesh Road Transport Corporation (BRTC is the State Road Transport arm of the Bangladesh Govt.). Buses starting from Dhaka leave on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 7:00AM and 7:30AM and buses starting from Kolkata are operated on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 5:30AM, 8:30AM, and 12:30PM, with no service from either side on Sunday. The journey is 12.5 hours long, 80 km (50 mi) from India side and 300 km (186 mi) into Bangladesh.
From India to Bangladesh there are services also provided by private comfortable a/c buslines (using Volvo and other luxurious Intercity bus transports) via the Haridaspur, North 24 Parganas / Benapole border post. Private Bangladeshi bus companies Shohagh, Green Line, Shyamoli and others operate daily bus services from Benapole to Dhaka. The normal one-way fare is Bangladeshi Taka 600-800, roughly $8–12.
After years of negotiations, the Dhaka-Agartala bus was agreed upon on July 11, 2001 to connect Bangladesh with its eastern neighbour, the Indian state of Tripura, which has a substantial Bengali population and indigenous peoples who have close commercial and cultural links with the people of eastern Bangladesh. The capital is connected by regular bus services with Bangladesh, it is more convenient for foreign nationals to enter Tripura via Bangladesh with an appropriate visa. Those foreign nationals coming to Dhaka or other cities of Bangladesh may come to Agartala via Akhaura border check post. Similarly, foreign nationals coming to Tripura by other routes could enter Bangladesh via this route. The journey time by road between Dhaka and Agartala is approximately 4 (four) hours.
Biman Bangladesh Airlines, the national carrier of Bangladesh connects Dhaka with Delhi and Kolkata. Private carrier Jet Airways of India also connects Mumbai along with Delhi and Kolkata, while United Airways of Bangladesh, connects Kolkata with Dhaka and Chittagong.
Indian and Bangladeshi governments will start work late by December or early by January 2015 on a new rail link to ease surface transport. India will build a 15-km railway tracks linking Tripura’s capital Agartala with Bangladesh’s southeastern city of Akhaura, an important railway junction connected to Chittagong port, resource-rich Sylhet and Dhaka. An agreement to implement the railway project was signed between India’s former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh and Bangladesh Premier Sheikh Hasina during her visit to India in January 2010. Total cost of the proposed project is estimated at Rs.252 crore. The Indian Railway Construction Company (IRCON) would lay the new railway tracks on both sides of the border. Of the 15 km rail line, five km of tracks fall in the Indian territory. The NFR is now laying tracks to connect Tripura’s southern most border town Sabroom, 135 km south of here

OLAT

April 30th, 2016

OLAT ist ein Learning Management System (LMS), welches als Web-Applikation verschiedene Formen von webbasiertem Lernen, Lehren und Moderieren ohne große didaktische Einschränkungen unterstützt. Der Produktname OLAT ist das Akronym (genau genommen ein Initialwort) für Online Learning And Training. OLAT wird seit 1999 an der Universität Zürich entwickelt und ist als kostenfreie Open Source erhältlich.

OLAT nahm seinen Anfang 1999 als studentisches Projekt an der Universität Zürich. Im Jahr 2000 gewann OLAT den MEDIDA-PRIX. Mit der Version 3.0 wurde das System im Jahr 2004 komplett neu entwickelt und ist seither als komponentenbasierte Java-Applikation Open Source erhältlich. OLAT unterstützt verschiedene E-Learning-Standards wie etwa IMS Content Packaging, IMS QTI und SCORM 1.2. Mit der Version 4.0 wurde OLAT um verschiedene Elemente erweitert, die die Erweiterung der LMS-Funktionalitäten erleichtern. Version 5.0 führte die Funktionen Wiki, Kalender, AJAX Beta Modus und Volltext-Suche ein. Die Version 6.0 beinhaltete in erster Linie ein neues Layout, das auf einer Usability-Studie basiert. Die Version 6.1 bietet volle Skalierbarkeit, kann also mit einem Cluster aus mehreren Servern betrieben werden. Dies ist entscheidend, um eine gute Betriebsgeschwindigkeit auch bei sehr hohen gleichzeitigen Nutzerzahlen zu gewährleisten. OLAT 7 bietet neu die Unterstützung der Standards REST API (für die Anbindung von Plugins), IMS Basic LTI (für die Anbindung von anderen Tools) sowie IMS QTI 2.1 Unterstützung (für Tests und Quizzes). Für Autoren gibt es neu einen Course Wizard, der einen durch die Erstellung von OLAT-Kursen begleitet. Und ebenfalls ab OLAT 7 wird die gesamte Applikation als WAR-file deployed und kann so einfach auf jeder Java Servlet Engine installiert werden.
OLAT umfasst viele für E-Learning-Plattformen typische Elemente:
Neben den typischen LMS-Funktionen bietet OLAT eine Gesamtlösung für E-Learning-Projekte. Die folgenden Aspekte werden durch OLAT abgedeckt:
Als strategisches LMS der Universität Zürich wird OLAT fortlaufend weiter entwickelt. OLAT wird in den letzten Jahren verbreitet angewendet, besonders im europäischen Hochschulbereich. OLAT hat ähnliche Ziele wie das Sakai-Projekt , aber im Vergleich zu dieser amerikanischen Initiative eine längere Entwicklungsphase. OLAT wurde von Anfang an entwickelt, um campusweites E-Learning zu unterstützen und kann prinzipiell verglichen werden mit kommerziellen Plattformen wie Blackboard oder Open-Source-Plattformen wie Moodle, reicht an diese aber aufgrund der in den letzten Jahren schleppenden Weiterentwicklung nicht heran.
OLAT ist ein voll ausgebautes LMS, das an Universitäten mit tausenden von Benutzern eingesetzt wird, z. B. Universität Zürich: ca. 50.000 (inkl. ca. 30.000 Benutzer aus anderen Schweizer Universitäten), die Universität Hamburg: ca. 30 MCM Rucksack 2016.000 und seit Sommersemester 2011 auch die Johann-Wolfgang-Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main: ca. 50.000 Benutzer.
Im Jahr 2006 ist aus dem Projekt das Spin-Off-Unternehmen frentix GmbH entstanden mit dem Ziel, OLAT auch außerhalb der Universität Zürich zu positionieren und auf kommerzieller Basis Dienstleistungen rund um das Open-Source-System für Unternehmen wie auch für Ausbildungsinstitutionen anzubieten. frentix ist seit der Firmengründung dem Open-Source-Gedanken treu geblieben und beteiligt sich maßgeblich an der Weiterentwicklung des Systems. Durch die kommerziellen Dienstleistungen hat sich die Verbreitung in Unternehmen, Fachhochschulen, Schulen und anderen Ausbildungsinstitutionen weiter gefestigt.
Andere Dienstleister sind aus der Open Source Community entstanden. Meist bieten diese Regional spezialisierte OLAT-Dienstleistungen an (z. B. in Griechenland, Polen oder China). Oft wird OLAT auch unter einem anderen Brand vermarktet, ein genauer Nachweis der vorhandenen Installationen ist daher äußerst schwierig zu erbringen.
Seit Ende 2009 wird von der chemmedia AG eine speziell für Unternehmen angepasste Version von OLAT unter dem Namen OLAT Enterprise Edition angeboten. In Zürich bietet die frentix GmbH ebenfalls OLAT-Lösungen für Firmen an.
Im Jahr 2011 wurde von der Universität Zürich ein tiefgreifendes Refactoringprojekt gestartet und auf Mercurial als Codeverwaltungssystem gewechselt. Im Zuge dieser Restrukturierungen wurde der Zugang zum Repository der Entwickler für die Open Source Community gesperrt und jeglicher Einfluss aus der Community abgeblockt. Das Verständnis des OLAT Teams bezüglich Open Source beschränkt sich seit dem Zeitpunkt auf das Veröffentlichen von fertiggestelltem Code unter der Apache Lizenz ohne einen Community Prozess.
In der Folge wurde Ende 2011 ein Fork unter dem Namen OpenOLAT ins Leben gerufen. OpenOLAT ist eine alternative Entwicklung zu OLAT, welche einen transparenten Entwicklungsprozess und den Einbezug der Community fördert. Initiator dieses neuen Projektes ist frentix GmbH, ein Unternehmen das von einem der ursprünglichen OLAT Erfinder gegründet wurde und kommerzielle Dienstleistungen für OLAT anbietet und in der Vergangenheit wesentliche Funktionen für OLAT beigetragen hatte.
Die weitere Entwicklung von OLAT als Projekt der Universität Zürich stagniert, von kleineren Releases abgesehen. So war lt. der Roadmap bereits für 2013 eine grundlegende und wichtige Überarbeitung des E-Assessments geplant, von der bis zum 2. Quartal 2015 jedoch noch nichts umgesetzt wurde. Dafür verfolgt die Universität Zürich nun das Projekt OLATplus, das in mehrere Teilprojekte aufgeteilt ist: E-Assessment, Grundlagen und LMS. An den Projektbeschreibungen ist erkennbar, dass OLAT zumindest in Teilen versucht, den Abstand zu modernen LMS wie ILIAS oder Moodle aufzuholen. Fehlende, heute wichtige Funktionen, wie z.B. adaptives Layout für mobile Geräte mit Touch-Unterstützung, haben dazu geführt, dass einige Hochschulen und Hochschulverbände von OLAT zu OpenOLAT gewechselt haben. Dazu gehören u.a. der Virtuelle Campus Rheinland-Pfalz und die Fachhochschule Nordwestschweiz.
OLAT läuft ohne Änderungen auf Unix, Linux, OpenBSD, FreeBSD, Windows, Mac OS X. Die Anforderungen für OLAT sind hauptsächlich:
Didaktischer Einsatz von OLAT:

Nanquan Puyuan

April 30th, 2016

Nanquan Puyuan (Chinese: 南泉普願; Wade-Giles: Nan-ch’üan P’u-yüan; Pinyin: Nánquán Pǔyuàn; Japanese: Nansen Fugan) (c. 749 – c. 835) was a Chán (Zen) Buddhist master in China during the Tang Dynasty. He was the student and Dharma successor of the Master Mazu Daoyi (709-788).

In the year 795, after his enlightenment experience under Mǎzŭ, he settled in a self-made hut on Mount Nanquan, from which his dharma name is derived, and lived there in eremitic solitude for three decades. In time, monks persuaded him to come down the mountain and found a monastery; from that time forward, he always had hundreds of students.
Nanquan appears in several koans:
Two koans from the Blue Cliff Record (#28 & #69) depict Nanquan as an advanced student interacting with fellow students of Mǎzŭ, and the others depict him as a teacher in his own right.
A well-known koan is case #14 of the Gateless Gate, “Nansen kills the cat”:
Once the monks of the eastern and western Zen halls were quarrelling about a cat. Nansen held up the cat and said, “You monks! If one of you can say a word, I will spare the cat. If you can’t say anything, I will put it to the sword.” No one could answer, so Nansen finally slew it 2016 maje clothing. In the evening 2016 discount sandro clothing, when Joshu returned, Nansen told him what had happened. Joshu, thereupon

, took off his sandals, put them on his head and walked off. Nansen said, “If you had been there, I could have spared the cat.”
Nánquán had seventeen Dharma successors, the most famous of whom was Zhàozhōu Cōngshěn (778-897). Case #19 of the Gateless Gate recounts an interaction between Nánquán and Zhàozhōu that led to the latter having a profound realization; some translators/editors, for example Paul Reps, interpret this as Zhàozhōu’s enlightenment moment.

Matthew Stafford

April 30th, 2016

John Matthew Stafford (born February 7, 1988) is an American football quarterback for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Georgia, and was drafted by the Lions first overall in the 2009 NFL Draft.
Stafford is the fourth quarterback in NFL history to throw over 5,000 yards in a single season, including one of three in the 2011 NFL season (Drew Brees and Tom Brady), and was the fastest player in NFL history to reach 25,000 passing yards (90 games).

Stafford was born in Tampa, Florida, to John and Margaret Stafford. He lived in Dunwoody, Georgia, while his father attended graduate school at the University of Georgia. His family then moved to Dallas, Texas, and Stafford attended Highland Park High School with Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw. He was coached by Randy Allen and was widely considered to be one of the best high school quarterbacks in the United States in the Class of 2006, ranked ahead of Tim Tebow.
In 2005, he led his team to a perfect 15–0 record and won the UIL 4A Division I State Championship. During the playoff run, Stafford beat Ryan Mallett’s Texarkana Texas 38–31, as well as Jevan Snead’s Stephenville 41–38. Stafford had over 4,000 yards passing without playing the first three games of the season due to a knee injury. Stafford received numerous accolades including being named to the Parade All-America Team and the USA Today Pre-Season Super 25 in 2005. He also won the MVP and Best Arm awards at the 2005 EA Sports Elite 11 Quarterback Camp and was named the 2005 EA Sports National Player of the Year. Regarded as a five-star recruit by Rivals.com, Stafford was listed as the No. 1 pro-style quarterback prospect in the class of 2006 by Rivals.com.
Before he had even started a game at the collegiate level, analyst Mel Kiper, Jr. predicted, correctly, that Stafford would eventually be the first pick in the NFL Draft.
Sources:
Stafford graduated early from high school and enrolled at the University of Georgia in January, where he became the first true freshman quarterback to start for the Georgia Bulldogs football team since Quincy Carter in 1998, and first out of high school to start since Eric Zeier in 1991. Stafford wore number 7 at Georgia. He completed five of 12 passes for 102 yards and one TD in a Georgia spring game.
Stafford debuted late in the season opener of the 2006 season against Western Kentucky and went 3 of 5 passing for 40 yards and a touchdown pass. During the season’s third game, against South Carolina, starting quarterback Joe Tereshinski III was injured, forcing Stafford to come off the bench. Although he completed just 8 of 19 passes for 171 yards and three interceptions, Georgia won the game, 18–0. Against University of Alabama Birmingham the following week, Stafford made his first collegiate start. Georgia won, 34–0. Victories over Colorado and Mississippi improved Georgia’s record to 5–0, but the heart of the conference schedule loomed.
The rest of the season was up and down for Stafford and the Bulldogs. Following home losses to both Tennessee and Vanderbilt, UGA head coach Mark Richt named Stafford the starter for the rest of the season ahead of Tereshinski. Stafford completed 20 of 32 passes for 267 yards and two touchdowns in a 27–24 win over Mississippi State, and was named the SEC Freshmen of the Week for his efforts. Statistically, he had his best game of the season against the 5th-ranked Auburn Tigers. Stafford finished the game 14 of 20 for 219 yards and a touchdown, and added 83 rushing yards and a touchdown on 7 carries in Georgia’s 37–15 upset win. The following week, Stafford led the Bulldogs on a 12-play, 64-yard drive and threw the game-winning touchdown pass in Georgia’s 15–12 win over No. 16 Georgia Tech.
Stafford completed his freshman season by leading Georgia to a 31–24 come-from-behind victory over Virginia Tech in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, after the Bulldogs trailed 21–3 at halftime. Stafford threw for 129 yards and a second half touchdown to spark the comeback.
He threw for 234 yards and two touchdowns as the Bulldogs defeated the Oklahoma State Cowboys in the season opener. Against Alabama, the Bulldogs avoided an 0–2 start in SEC play by escaping Bryant-Denny Stadium with an overtime win. Stafford connected with senior wide receiver Mikey Henderson on the Bulldogs’ first play from scrimmage in OT for the winning score. In UGA’s win vs. No. 9 Florida, he completed 11 of 18 passes for 217 yards and three touchdowns, including a career-long TD pass of 84 yards to Mohamed Massaquoi and a 53-yard TD pass to Henderson. The wins over Florida, Auburn, and Georgia Tech marked the first time that Georgia had defeated all three rivals in the same season since 1982.
Stafford had 175 yards passing and a TD pass during Georgia’s 41–10 rout of the No. 10 Hawaii Warriors in the 2008 Sugar Bowl. He completed 194 of 348 passes for 2,523 yards (194.1/game) and 19 TDs as well as two rushing TDs for the season.
Stafford was chosen to Athlon’s preseason Heisman Favorites Others To Watch list. Georgia was ranked #1 in both the preseason coaches poll and the AP poll, marking the first time Georgia has ever been #1 in the preseason version of either poll; the team also entered the 2008 season with the longest active winning streak among the 66 BCS conference teams, having won its last 7 games of the 2007 season. In the final regular season game against Georgia Tech, Stafford completed 24 out of 39 attempts for 407 yards and 5 touchdowns, setting a personal record for touchdowns in a single game, albeit a 45–42 loss. Stafford finished the season with 3,459 passing yards, the second most in school history, and 25 touchdowns, the single-season record for passing touchdowns. He also rushed for a touchdown in 2008. After defeating Michigan State 24–12 and winning the MVP of the 2009 Capital One Bowl, Stafford finished his three years at Georgia with a 3–0 record in bowl games and a 6–3 record in rivalry games (1–2 against Florida, 3–0 against Auburn, and 2–1 against Georgia Tech). Stafford chose to forgo his senior season and enter the 2009 NFL Draft.

The so-called “Stafford Effect” relates to the phenomenon seen at Stafford’s high school alma mater, Highland Park High School in Dallas, Texas, from 2006–2008, where the number of seniors who applied to University of Georgia rose dramatically in the three years following Stafford’s departure to Athens, Georgia. In 2005, the year before Stafford went to Georgia, 35 seniors applied to the university, compared with 69 in 2006, 75 in 2007, and 106 in 2008. The “Stafford Effect” was chronicled in a feature story in Stafford’s hometown newspaper, Park Cities People. Stafford remarked in the story, “I’m not sure I have anything to do with it. I think people realize Georgia is a good school to watch football and have a good time, just like in Highland Park.”
Already after the 2008 NFL Draft, several NFL analysts predicted Stafford would be the #1 pick in the 2009 Draft if he chose to leave school early. He eventually did, and on April 24, 2009, agreed to record contract terms with the Detroit Lions to become the first overall pick of the 2009 NFL Draft, one day before the draft was held. The six-year contract reportedly contained $41.7 million in guaranteed money (the most guaranteed to any player in NFL history until July 30, 2010, when Sam Bradford signed a deal with $50 million guaranteed) and carried a total value of up to $78 million.
On September 6, 2009, Lions head coach Jim Schwartz announced that Stafford would be the Lions’ permanent starting quarterback heading into the 2009 season. Regarding his decision, Schwartz stated, “This isn’t an internship or an experiment.” Stafford beat out veteran Daunte Culpepper for the starting job. Stafford made his first start in the NFL on September 13, 2009. He was one of four rookie starters for the Lions (Brandon Pettigrew, Louis Delmas and Sammie Hill) in the season opener against the New Orleans Saints Cheongsam Dress, and was the first Lions rookie quarterback to start the season since Greg Landry in 1968. He completed 16 of 37 passes for 205 yards and 3 interceptions; he was intercepted twice by Darren Sharper, the other time by Scott Shanle. He also ran in a 1-yard touchdown.
In Week 2, he threw his first career touchdown pass when he connected with Calvin Johnson on a 6-yard touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings.
In Week 3, Stafford led the Lions to their first victory since the 2007 season. He completed 21 of 36 for 241 yards and one touchdown in Detroit’s 19–14 win over the Washington Redskins.
In Week 4, Stafford completed 24 of 36 for 296 yards with one touchdown as well as an interception before suffering a knee injury while being sacked in the fourth quarter of Detroit’s 48–24 loss to the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. He underwent further evaluation back in Detroit. Culpepper started in his place in week 5, and again in week 6.
In Week 8, Stafford returned as the starter in the home game against the Rams. Here he threw and completed 14/33 passes for 168 yards, and an interception and was also sacked twice, but he ran for a touchdown which turned out to be the only one of the game for the Lions as well as handing the Rams their only victory of the season as they lost 17–10.
In Week 9, Stafford struggled at the Seahawks going 22/42 for 203 yards with 2 touchdowns but he also threw 5 costly interceptions which remains his career high in the 32–20 loss.
In Week 10, Stafford went 29/51 for 224 yards and a touchdown in the 27–10 loss at the Vikings.
On November 22, 2009, Stafford threw 5 touchdowns in a 38–37 win over the Cleveland Browns, becoming the youngest quarterback ever to do so, being more than a year younger than the former record holder, Dan Marino. In a thrilling ending, Stafford received high acclaim when he stepped back onto the field despite team doctors’ urge to stay on the sideline after suffering a separated shoulder on the previous play and threw the final touchdown pass as time expired. In addition to the five touchdown passes, Stafford accumulated 422 yards passing, a record for a rookie at that time. For his performance, Stafford won NFC Offensive Player of the Week and Pepsi Rookie of the Week. Stafford was mic’d up for the game for NFL Films. The show’s creator Steve Sabol said it was the most dramatic performance he’s seen in the show’s 30-year history.

The Lions announced that Dr. James Andrews had performed surgery on Stafford’s throwing shoulder, which included an AC joint repair and a clavicle shaving. This ended his 2010 season, leaving the Lions at 1–2 in games he started and bringing his career total with the Lions to 3–10.

Stafford and the Lions lost the next three games to the 49ers, Titans, and Vikings.

“I might (reflect on that) when I’m done playing someday,” Stafford said. “I had no idea about that, or that it was coming. It’s something that I’ll probably look back on when I’m done and realize it was something pretty special.”
Stafford also holds the 50-game record for completions at 1,214, over Marc Bulger’s 1,115. He’s second in career 300-yard passing performances through 50 games at 19, trailing Warner’s 29.
Stafford led the Lions to a 5–3 record entering their mid-season bye. Stafford defeated the Cowboys 31–30 in the final game before the bye, throwing for 488 yards and a touchdown despite two interceptions; down 30–24 with just 62 seconds to work with and no timeouts Stafford completed a 23-yard pass to Calvin Johnson to the Cowboys 1-yard line; he hustled the team to the line as though to spike the ball, but instead jumped over the line for the winning touchdown with 14 seconds to go, to go to 5–3.

Lage von Leutewitz in Sachsen
Leutewitz ist ein Ortsteil der Stadt Riesa im Landkreis Meißen, Sachsen. Er hat 208 Einwohner (31. Dezember 2005) und befindet sich knapp sechs Kilometer südöstlich von Riesa gegenüber Nünchritz in der Elbaue.

Leutewitz liegt in 100 m ü.M. am linken Elbufer. Westlich des Dorfes befindet sich der Verkehrslandeplatz Riesa-Göhlis. Nachbarorte sind Göhlis im Nordwesten, Poppitz im Westen 2016 fußballtrikots, Heyda im Südwesten, Schänitz im Südosten sowie am gegenüberliegenden Elbufer Grödel im Norden, Nünchritz im Osten und Leckwitz im Südosten.
Erstmals urkundlich wurde Lutunewiz im Jahr 1186/90 erwähnt. Der Ort entstand auf einer Anhöhe an einem Flussarm der Elbe. Die Besiedlung erfolgte jedoch weitaus früher, wie sich durch archäologische Funde belegen lässt. Auf dem im Süden des heutigen Dorfes gelegenen Scheitel der Anhöhe befand sich bereits in der Mittelbronzezeit eine Siedlung mit Urnengrabstätte Puma Fußballschuhe auf Verkauf 2016. Nordöstlich, an der Landstraße nach Riesa, wurde ein weiteres frühgermanisches Urnenfeld aus dem 1. Jahrtausend v. Chr. und Reste einer Besiedlung aus dem 1. Jahrtausend vorgefunden.
Neben dem adligen Grundbesitz gehörte ein Teil von Leutewitz zum Benediktinerkloster zu Riesa, das ein Vorwerk errichtet hatte. Seit 1266 ist die unter dem Patronat des Klosters stehende Kirche nachweislich. 1435 erfolgte die Aufteilung der Vorwerksfluren in Bauernlehne. 1650 brannte durch einen Blitzschlag das gesamte Dorf bis auf die Kirche nieder. Einem weiteren Großbrand fielen am 19. November 1801 neben der Kirche und dem Pfarrhaus noch acht Häuser zum Opfer. Bis 1839 war Leutewitz dem Rittergut Riesa untertänig.
Bei der Elbregulierung zum Ende des Jahrhunderts wurde der Leutewitzer Elbarm trockenlegt und die davor befindliche Insel Werder durch Anschüttung angelandet. Die etwa anderthalb Kilometer lange frühere Insel wurde mit Dämmen gegen Hochwasser geschützt und der Flur Leutewitz zugeschlagen. 1909 wurde das Schulhaus eingeweiht. Während des Zweiten Weltkrieges entstand westlich von Leutewitz der Fliegerhorst Göhlis, der während der DDR-Zeit durch die GST als Sportflugplatz genutzt wurde und heute den Namen „Verkehrslandeplatz Riesa-Göhlis“ trägt. Im Jahr 1966 wurde die Schule geschlossen und zum Kindergarten umgenutzt (bis 1998). Neuer Schulort wurde Boritz. Leutewitz blieb ein reines Bauerndorf, in dem der Kartoffelanbau eine große Rolle spielte und in den 1970er Jahren Kartoffelschäler-, Lagerungs- und Verpackungsanlagen für die Knollen entstanden. Etwa drei Viertel der Einwohner war in den Riesaer Industriebetrieben tätig.
Leutewitz wurde am 1. Juli 1996 nach Riesa eingemeindet.

Richard O. Stimson

April 30th, 2016

Richard O. Stimson (born May 15, 1957) is the founder, pastor and executive director of The Special Gathering, a Christian ministry within the mentally challenged community. The mission of Special Gathering is to “evangelize and disciple” this subculture made up of people who are developmentally delayed.
An ordained Assemblies of God minister, “Stimson conceived the idea for the ministry when he was in college and teaching a Sunday school class of mentally handicapped students in Lakeland, Florida.” In 1982 after his graduation from Southeastern University (Florida), The Special Gathering of Cocoa, Florida was formed. The ministry has grown to eight programs in two states. The Special Gathering, Inc., is the umbrella organization. Coming under this ministry are The Special Gathering of Brevard, The Special Gathering of Indian River, The Special Gathering of South Carolina, The Special Gathering of Volusia, and The Special Gathering of Jacksonville.

A proponent of the specialized model of ministry for individuals who are intellectually disabled, Stimson teaches that “community-based ministry is the most effective vehicle to use in spreading” the good news of Christianity to this sub-culture. Doing classic ministry, the heart of each Special Gathering is the chapel services which are conducted on a regular basis. Stimson writes, “God has ordained the local church to spread the good news of Christianity.” Therefore, The Special Gathering in each geographic area remains subordinate to the local congregations. Daniel W. Burgess reported in Pentecostal Evangel, March 1987 issue, “The Special Gathering’s intent is to lovingly nurture the spiritual life of each person.”
An avid advocate (Proverbs 31:8-9) for the rights of the people who are intellectually disabled, Stimson understands that the State and Federal governments are actively involved in the lives of his members. For this reason, it is important to serve as a watchdog and activist protecting the rights of vulnerable members of our society. It is Stimson’s view that a pastor must be like a shepherd. Shepherds protect their sheep and that advocacy is part of pastoral care.
While some applaud the work he had done, Stimson has drawn controversial fire from other respected ministers within the disability community. Thomas B. Hoeksema, PhD, of Calvin College wrote 2016 chanel kleding, “We cannot always cave into the alleged social need to congregate. Persons with developmental disabilities are necessary to the integrated, normalized family of God. Without them, the Body of Christ is disabled (and) denied the diversity of gifts which people with retardation bring. Total segregation is not good for those with or without disabilities.”
Brett Webb-Mitchell, PhD, used Stimson’s model of ministry as an example of what should not be done in ministry for individuals who are intellectually disabled. In his article published in the 1994 issue of the Journal of Religion in Disability & Rehabilitation. Webb-Mitchell wrote, “A Florida pastor has formed congregations for only people with mental retardation and some of these have existed for more than 10 years prada schoenen 2016. He has taken those with mental retardation out of the worship of ‘normal congregations.’ They now gather together in rented halls on Sunday mornings for their own church, called ‘A Special Gathering.’ Why? Because he thought putting persons with mental retardation into worship would be like placing them in a high school algebra class. For this pastor, worship is merely a thing of the mind.”
Stimson has been published in the Mental Retardation, a Journal of Policy, Practices, and Perspective, published by the American Association on Mental Retardation, and The Journal of Religion, Disability and Health published by Haworth Press. Articles about The Special Gathering have appeared in Christianity Today, Pentecostal Evangel, Charisma, and many other magazines. Stimson served as publisher of the quarterly journal, Networks, published by The Special Gathering from 1991 to 1994.
Stimson has a BA from Southeastern University[which hermes tassen outlet?] and a Masters from the Moody Bible Institute.[citation needed]
