John Galvin (general)

John Rogers Galvin (May 13, 1929 – September 25, 2015) was an American army general who served as the sixth dean of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University and a member of the U.S. Commission on National Security/21st Century.

Galvin began his service as an enlisted soldier in the Massachusetts Army National Guard from 1947 to 1950 before he received an appointment to United States Military Academy at West Point, graduating in 1954 with a Bachelor of Science degree. in 1969, During the Vietnam War, lieutenant colonel Galvin commanded the 1st Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile). For his actions as the battalion’s commander he was awarded the Silver Star.

He later earned a Master of Arts degree in English from Columbia University and completed a fellowship at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy in 1971. Galvin rose through the ranks and commanded the 24th Infantry Division. later on he commanded the VII Corps from July 1983 to February 1985.

Galvin’s career included the rare opportunity to command two different Department of Defense Unified Commands. He served as Commander in Chief, United States Southern Command in Panama from 1985 to 1987 and Commander in Chief, United States European Command from June 26, 1987, to June 23, 1992. During his tenure as Commander U.S. European Command he also served as NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander, Europe (SACEUR).

During his time as SACEUR many stay-behind networks in Europe were dismantled, a process that started with the revelations by Italy’s then prime minister, Giulio Andreotti, who disclosed to the Italian Parliament the existence of a Gladio stay-behind anti-communist paramilitary network headed by NATO and present in most European countries.

Galvin lived with his wife Ginny and had four daughters. One of his daughters, Beth, is a medical reporter for WAGA, the FOX affiliate in Atlanta. The Galvin Middle School in Wakefield, Massachusetts, is named after him. The United States Military Academy awarded Galvin (Class of ’54) the 1997 Distinguished Graduate Award. On September 25, 2015, he died in Jonesboro, Georgia at the age of 86.


Ceresiosaurus, meaning „Lizard of Ceresio“ (Ceresio is the name of the Lake Lugano, in Switzerland), is an extinct aquatic genus of lariosaurine nothosaurid sauropterygian known from the Middle Triassic (Anisian-Ladinian boundary) of Monte San Giorgio, southern Switzerland and northern Italy. The type species, Ceresiosaurus calcagnii, was named by Bernhard Peyer in 1931. C. calcagnii is known from both the Cava superiore and Cava inferiore beds of the Lower Meride Limestone at Monte San Giorgio, dating to the latest Anisian of the Middle Triassic. Rieppel (1998) suggested that the back then monospecific genus Ceresiosaurus, is a junior synonym of the better known Lariosaurus, yet he kept it type species as a separate species under the new combination L. calcagnii. In 2004, however, this synonymy was objected by Hänni who described and name a second species of Ceresiosaurus, C. lanzi – a separation supported by several other authors since. This species is known only from the stratigraphically younger Cassima beds of Monte San Giorgio, although also from the Lower Meride Limestone, dating to possibly the lowest Ladinian age. The species in a subtropical lagoonal environment with varying open marine influences, and alongside many related but smaller species of nothosaurids and pachypleurosaurids. Ceresiosaurus represents one of the largest vertebrate of up to 3 m snout-tail length from the very diversified paleoenvironment of the Middle Triassic Monte San Giorgio.

Ceresiosaurus was much more elongated than its relatives, reaching 3 metres (9.8 ft) in length, and had fully developed flippers with no trace of visible toes. It had multiple elongated phalanges, making the flippers much longer than in most other nothosaurs, and more closely resembling those of the later plesiosaurs. Ceresiosaurus also had the shortest skull of any known nothosaur, which further increased its resemblance to plesiosaurs.

Although possessing a long neck and tail, Ceresiosaurus may not have swum by undulating its body. Analysis of the bone structure of the hips and powerful tail suggest that it instead propelled itself through the water much like a penguin[citation needed]. The evidence of pachypleurosaurs in the preserved stomach of Ceresiosaurus remains lend credence to the theory of it being a fast swimmer.

Cardiff West Yard Locomotive Works

West Yard Works was the Taff Vale Railway’s locomotive repair and construction factory. It was located in Cardiff between Bute Street and the Glamorganshire Canal.

A small engine shed with room for one locomotive and a repair shop was built there when the railway was first constructed in 1839, but much of the work had to be carried out in the open air.

In 1846 Henry Clement was appointed as the railway’s Resident Engineer and one of the first things he did was to have a locomotive works built there. In 1857 the first locomotive was built at the works, ‚Venus‘ a small 2-4-0 passenger loco.

When the Taff Vale introduced the 0-6-2T type, which was to become ubiquitous across South Wales, the works traverser could not accommodate the longer wheelbase so locomotives had to have their trailing radial wheels removed while within the works.

The works could only be accessed by level crossings accessed by turntables on the main line near the railway’s terminus at Bute Road station.

Shortage of space finally led Tom Hurry Riches, the railway’s Locomotive Superintendent to suspend locomotive building by the company itself after the completion of the O1 class in 1897. However in 1903 a small steam engine unit for the company’s first rail motor was built there, the carriage part being built at their Cathays Carriage and Wagon Works, however further rail motors were all built by outside contractors.

After the Great War there were plans to build a new works at Radyr but as the company was to amalgamate with the Great Western Railway and other South Wales companies in 1922 that plan was abandoned and the Great Western subsequently concentrated all major locomotive repair work in South Wales at the former Rhymney Railway’s Caerphilly Works.

New workshops were constructed at Caerphilly and after their opening West Yard Works finally closed on 28 August 1926, the remaining workforce transferring to Caerphilly.

One locomotive built at West Yard has survived, as the last standard gauge loco built in Wales. No 28, an O1 class 0-6-2T is now a part of the National Collection, currently dismantled for restoration at Llangollen.


Bromellite, whose name derives from the Swedish chemist Magnus von Bromell (1670–1731), is a white oxide mineral, found in complex pegmatitic manganese-iron deposits, but is more frequently made synthetically. This is a rare mineral to encounter in its natural state, but it has been made synthetically for over 40 years.

Bromellite, as a beryllium-containing mineral, has some uses. Industrially, natural specimens have the potential to be an ore of beryllium. It is one of the reagents that can be used in the manufacture of artificial emeralds. As an additive, bromellite confers high mechanical strength and very high thermal conductivity. In nuclear reactors, it is used as a moderator for fast neutrons. Ceramics containing bromellite are used in electronics, as well as crucibles for the melting of uranium and thorium. Bromellite, both natural and synthetic, is also used as a gemstone or as a collector’s mineral. As a gemstone bromellite is extremely rare. To date there has been found only one crystal that is large enough to be cut. In 2000 Dunil Palitha Gunasekara of Ratnapura, Sri Lanka purchased a rough colorless 17.77-ct crystal from Ratnapura. He cut it into 15 pieces, of which 3 pieces with 2.80, 1.92 and 0.68 ct were sent to the GIA laboratory for further testing, since he thought them to be johachiodolite at first. These gemstones are the first reported examples of faceted gem-quality bromellite.

Jacques-Melchior Saint-Laurent, Conte di Barras

Jacques-Melchior Saint-Laurent, Conte di Barras (1719 – 1783 circa), è stato un ammiraglio francese che combatté nella guerra d’indipendenza americana.

All’inizio del 1781 lo squadrone navale francese comandato dal Barras si trovava a Newport nel Rhode Island. Gli ordini ricevuti in Francia erano d’intraprendere una spedizione contro l’isola di Terranova, allora in mano inglese. Tuttavia il conte di Rochambeau, tenente generale al comando di un corpo di spedizione francese inviato da Luigi XVI a sostegno dei ribelli americani nel corso della guerra di indipendenza americana, di stanza nel Rhode Island, convinse il Barras a dirigersi con la sua flotta verso sud per incontrare quella dell’ammiraglio conte de Grasse, che stava risalendo con la sua flotta verso nord dai Caraibi, per sostenere i ribelli americani in Virginia. Questa serie di eventi portò alla vittoria franco-americana dei Yorktown

L’anno successivo Barras operò agli ordini del de Grasse nei Caraibi. Quest’ultimo condusse una spedizione per la conquista dell’isola di Montserrat nel febbraio del 1782. Barras condusse l’attacco all’isola che venne conquistata il 22 febbraio e rimarrà in mani francesi per più di un anno, fino al Trattato di Parigi del 1783 con il quale verrà restituita alla Gran Bretagna.

Più tardi Barras partecipò, sempre sotto il comando di de Grasse, alla battaglia navale delle Saintes, nei Caraibi, ove tuttavia la flotta francese fu sconfitta da quella inglese agli ordini dell’ammiraglio George Brydges Rodney.

Comilang v Commissioner of Registration

Comilang v. Commissioner of Registration was a 2011–2013 case against the Hong Kong Immigration Department by a former foreign domestic helper (Milagros Tecson Comilang) who is the sole custodial parent of a child (Zahrah Noor Ahmed) who has permanent residence status in Hong Kong. Comilang sought to challenge her own removal from Hong Kong on, inter alia, the grounds that it would effectively force Ahmed to leave Hong Kong and thus deprive her of all of the benefits she should enjoy as a Hong Kong permanent resident. The ruling against the applicants in the Court of First Instance had wider legal significance, as it established that neither the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights nor the Convention on the Rights of the Child are incorporated in Hong Kong law.

The applicants won a minor victory in May 2013 when the Court of Appeal quashed the decision of the Immigration Department denying a visa to Comilang on procedural grounds and ordered fresh consideration of her application for stay; however, this is not likely to result in Comilang’s being granted a residence visa, and thus further legal challenges are expected.

The first applicant, Milagros Tecson Comilang, is a native of the Philippines. She came to Hong Kong in 1997 to work as a foreign domestic helper, and continued in that line of work until 13 July 2005. After leaving employment as an FDH, she got married to Shaker Ahmed, a Pakistani national and Hong Kong permanent resident. Her husband then sponsored her to apply for a dependent visa. In 2006, while her application remained pending, her daughter Zahrah Noor Ahmed (the second applicant) was born. However, the marriage broke down when she discovered that her husband Shaker Ahmed was already married, and Ahmed withdrew his sponsorship of her application.

The Family Court awarded Comilang custody of her daughter; however, the Immigration Department ordered Comilang to depart from Hong Kong. In 2007, Comilang requested leave to seek judicial review against the Immigration Department’s order, but Judge Michael Hartmann of the Court of First Instance denied leave. Comilang later applied to the Commissioner of Registration for issuance of an identity card, as well as for permission from the Director of Immigration to extend her stay in Hong Kong, but was refused both times. She appealed to the Registration of Persons Tribunal, which ruled against her in June 2010.

Comilang was successful in obtaining leave to seek judicial review against the tribunal’s decision. She received Legal Aid and was represented by Daly & Associates, which instructed barrister Gladys Li. Justice Johnson Lam of the Court of First Instance ruled against Comilang in June 2012. One complex legal question partially addressed by Lam’s judgment was whether or not the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights is incorporated in Hong Kong law, and to what extent it imposes obligations on the Hong Kong government. In prior cases, most Hong Kong judges had declined to rule on this issue at all; they addressed only the simpler legal question of whether or not a claimant’s rights under the ICESCR had been violated, and having found in all such cases that no violation had occurred, they were able to avoid the need to examine the question of incorporation. However, Lam observed (at para. 54):

The Hong Kong Human Rights Monitor, in an August 2012 submission to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights on the implementation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights in Hong Kong, pointed to Lam’s ruling as an example which brought into question the Hong Kong government’s commitment to preserving family rights under Article 23 of the ICCPR. Lam also noted (at para. 35 et seq.):

In 2013, when the Hong Kong government stated in China’s report under the Convention on the Rights of the Child that „The Convention as applied to Hong Kong will be taken into account in the courts of the HKSAR where appropriate“, the Hong Kong Bar Association in its own submission to the Committee on the Rights of the Child objected, pointing out that Lam’s ruling had recognised that the CRC is not incorporated in Hong Kong law and arguing that the Hong Kong government’s statement misrepresented the extent to which domestic legislation takes into account the „best interests of the child“.

In August 2012, Comilang appealed Lam’s decision to the Court of Appeal. The appeal came before Chief Judge Andrew Cheung, Vice-President Frank Stock, and Justice Joseph Fok on 16 April 2013. Comilang brought up several grounds of appeal, but Fok in the unanimous opinion did not deal with most of them. The Court of Appeal allowed Comilang’s appeal on the narrow ground that the Immigration Department had dealt with her letter requesting permission to stay in a „fundamentally misconceived“ fashion by treating it as an application to remain in Hong Kong as a dependant of her daughter, and rejecting it on that basis because the daughter, who was four years old at the time of the initial application, lacked the economic capacity to support the mother. After this partial victory, Comilang now awaits a fresh decision by the Director of Immigration on her application to remain in Hong Kong.
