«Дыхательная трубка» (англ. The Snorkel, 1957) — триллер.

Благодаря дьвольскому трюку, Жаку Девалю (Питер фон Айк) удалось убить свою жену (Бетта Джон): он её оглушает, открывает газовый кран, а сам с дыхательным аппаратом прячется в маленькой комнате под половицами. Полиция верит в самоубийство. Как только полицейские снова приходят, Дюваль выбирается из своего укрытия и «возвращается из деловой командировки». Его приемная дочь, Кэнди (Мэнди Миллер), что-то подозревает, но не может убедить ни полицию, ни их гувернантку. Когда она находит дыхательную трубку, Дюваль намеревается убить её также. Кэнди удается в последнюю минуту выбежать из газовой комнаты, в то время как Дювал становится жертвой своего преступления и должен умереть.

Briggs & Stratton

Briggs & Stratton is an American industrial company primarily involved in engineering, developing and manufacturing internal combustion reciprocating gas engines. It is the world’s largest manufacturer of air-cooled gasoline engines primarily for outdoor power equipment. Production averages 10 million engines per year as of April 2015.

Launched in 1908 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the company is based today in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. Briggs & Stratton engines are commonly used on lawnmowers, as well as pressure washers, electrical generators, and a wide variety of other applications. Their original cast-iron engines were known for their durability, but the company’s success was established following the development of lightweight aluminum engines in 1953. The aluminum engine was the perfect solution for the recently invented rotary lawnmower due to its lighter weight and lower cost.

The company started in 1908 as an informal partnership between Stephen Foster Briggs and Harold M. Stratton. S.F. Briggs was born in Watertown, South Dakota, and graduated from South Dakota State College (now South Dakota State University) in Brookings in 1907. The idea for his first product came from an upper-level engineering class project at SDSC. This first product was a six-cylinder, two-cycle engine, which Stephen Foster Briggs developed during his engineering courses at South Dakota State. After his graduation, he was eager to produce his engine and enter the rapidly expanding automobile industry. Bill Juneau, a coach at South Dakota State, knew of Briggs‘ ambition and the entrepreneurial interests of Harold M. Stratton, a successful grain merchant who had a farm next to Juneau’s farm, so he introduced the two. In 1922, their fledgling company set a record in the automotive industry, selling the Briggs & Stratton Flyer (the „Red Bud“) at record low prices of US$125-$150.

Eventually Briggs and Stratton settled on manufacturing automotive components and small gasoline engines. Briggs purchased an engine patent from A.O. Smith Company and began powering early washing machines and reel mowers as well as many other types of equipment. The company went public on the New York Stock Exchange in 1928.

During World War II, Briggs & Stratton produced generators for the war effort. Some pre-war engines were made with aluminum, which helped the company develop its expertise in using this material. This development, along with the post-war growth of 1950s suburbs (and lawns), helped secure Briggs & Stratton’s successful growth throughout the 1950s and 1960s.

Stephen Briggs went on to purchase Evinrude and Johnson Outboards and start the Outboard Marine Corporation. Frederick P. Stratton, Sr. (the son of Harold Stratton) served as Chairman of Briggs & Stratton until his death in 1962. Frederick P. Stratton, Jr. served as Chairman until his retirement in 2001.

In 1995, Briggs & Stratton sold the automotive component business. The resulting company is Strattec Security Corporation.

In 2000, the company acquired its consumer generator business from the Beacon Group and formed Briggs & Stratton Power Products. The Beacon Group had previously purchased the Consumer Products Division of Generac Corporation (now Generac Power Systems) in 1998. In 2005, the company added Simplicity Manufacturing Inc, and Snapper, Inc, to the Briggs & Stratton Power Products line. Murray, Inc, one of its largest customers, collapsed owing the company $40 million, and to minimize the loss Briggs & Stratton purchased the name, marketing rights and product designs of that company. In 2008, Briggs & Stratton announced it would be acquiring the Victa Lawn Care business from GUD Holdings Limited Australia for A$23 million.

The Briggs & Stratton logo was always a masthead, but it has been changed several times over the course of the company’s 80-plus years.

Cast iron block, flathead, with Gravity feed float carb unless otherwise noted

Many variations and submodels were available on the basic series mentioned above. Some variations include – gear reducers (gears bolted to the back of the engine to slow the speed of the pto shaft) first offered in 1934, on the models A B K and Z later on I U N and WI. Designated by an „R“ after the basic model, then a 2, 4, or 6 to designate the reduction ratio. – high speed models (higher intake capacity to run higher rpm) available on the A B K M R and Z series. designated with an „H“ after the basic model. – light weight models (some aluminum parts to save weight) available on the A B I K R and Z series. Designated with an „L“ after the basic model -inboard marine engines (special base, no governor, thrust bearing on pto side) available on models A B H I K N and Z. Designated with an „M“ after the basic model. Some models also had forward neutral and reverse transmissions. These engines have an „T“ or „G“ after the „M“

Shivta (Hebrew: שבטה‎‎, Arabic: شبطا‎‎), is an ancient city in the Negev Desert of Israel located 43 kilometers southwest of Beersheba. Shivta was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in June 2005.

Long considered a classic Nabataean town on the ancient spice route, archaeologists are now considering the possibility that Shivta was a Byzantine agricultural colony and a way station for pilgrims en route to the Saint Catherine’s Monastery in the Sinai Peninsula.

Roman ruins from the first century BCE have been unearthed in the southern part of the town, but most of the archaeological findings date to the Byzantine period. Shivta’s water supply was based on surface runoff collected in large reservoirs.

Three Byzantine churches (a main church and two smaller churches), 2 wine-presses, residential areas and administrative buildings have been excavated at Shivta. After the Arab conquest in the 7th century CE, the population dwindled. It was finally abandoned in the 8th or 9th Century CE.

In 1933-34, American archaeologist Harris D. Colt conducted a dig at Shivta. The house he lived in bears an inscription in ancient Greek that reads: “With good luck. Colt built (this house) with his own money.“

The wine presses at Shivta give an insight into the scale of wine production at the time. According to the calculations of archaeologists, the Nabatean/Byzantine village of Shivta produced about two million liters of wine.

Adjacent to the site is a large farm that uses Nabatean agricultural techniques of irrigation, sowing and reaping.

Mabati Tatu

Mabati Tatu is a fast growing shopping center close to the border of Bungoma County and Trans-Nzoia County in Kenya. It is located 28 kilometres (17 mi) from Kitale town along the Kiminini – Turbo road. The name ‚Mabati Tatu‘ is a direct translation of Swahili for three iron sheets. This name is in reference to the family of Mzee Patrick Wamalwa Ngome who was the first to settle at the then bushy dirt road intersection.

In 1992, Mzee Patrick Ngome relocated his family from the neighboring Uasin Gishu District (now Uasin Gishu County) following a spate of tribal clashes between the Kalenjin and Luhya communities living in the district. Having been a politically active man, he was constantly targeted and threatened.

Mzee Ngome bought a 13 acre piece of Land from the Irene Melly. He constructed three big houses for his three wives. These houses were covered in iron sheets. in a sparsely populated are dotted with grass thatched huts, the three stood out from Kilometers away. From nearby slopes, shiny new iron roofs became location markers and people started giving direction based on the three iron sheets.

Mzee Ngome himself was a people’s person, when finally his family of more than 20 people settled in, he held court at his homestead and entertained guests of all manner. The family and the endless people traffic attracted snack vendors including members of the Ngome family.

In 1997, Patrick Ngome, vied and won the Ndalu Ward Councillor’s seat in Bungoma county council. His elevated status created even more fame for the now growing center. During his tenure, Mzee Ngome oversaw some road renovations that would make the center more accessible and passionately fought for land title deeds for people who had moved into the area for permanent settlement.

Mabati Tatu is now a vibrant small town serving a population of about 10,000 people from the surrounding villages. The original three houses have been swallowed by shops and kiosks and more homes. Patrick Ngome died in November 2011 when already so many changes had taken place to Mabati Tatu to make it a small town. His Family still owns a substantial size of land connected to the town. However none of the children has developed interest to do business around there. They are all working and settled in big cities around Kenya.


Kollaps was the first official LP by Einstürzende Neubauten, released in 1981 on German label ZickZack as #ZZ 65. The songs are a mixture of rough punk tunes and industrial noises. The industrial noises were obtained from self-made music machines, electronics, and found objects such as metal plates. The album was reissued in 2002 with Stahldubversions, originally released in 1982. Blixa Bargeld, N.U. Unruh, and F.M. Einheit appear on the album.

Jet’M is a cover of the Serge Gainsbourg song Je t’aime… moi non plus. The title is a pun, as when „Jet’M“ is read out loud, it sounds like „Je t’aime“ in French.

The track 15 of many CD versions of the album is a live version of Negativ Nein, recorded on 26 June 1987 at the Tempodrom in Berlin.

Trouser Press described the album as „one of the most shocking visions ever committed to vinyl.“ The album is included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.

Banque d’État de l’Empire russe

La Banque d’État de l’Empire russe (en russe : Государственный банк Российской Империи) était la principale banque de l’Empire russe de 1860 à 1917. La banque est considérée comme le prédécesseur de la Banque Centrale de la Fédération de Russie qui fait aujourd’hui office de banque centrale en Russie.

La Banque d’État fut créée le 12 juin 1860 (31 mai dans le calendrier julien) comme banque commerciale d’État par ukase de l’empereur Alexandre II. Le décret définissait également le statut de la banque : la banque d’État devait accorder des crédits à court terme aux entreprises commerciales et industrielles.

Début 1917, la banque comprenait 11 branches, 133 bureaux permanents et 5 temporaires ainsi qu’un réseau de 42 agences. Le 17 novembre 1917, la Banque d’État fut dissoute et remplacée par la Banque du Peuple de Russie (jusqu’en 1922) puis par la Banque d’État d’URSS (jusqu’en 1991). Après la dissolution de l’Union des républiques socialistes soviétiques en 1991, une nouvelle banque centrale fut créée : la Banque Centrale de la Fédération de Russie.
