O My Father (hymn)



O My Father is a Latter-day Saint (LDS or Mormon) hymn written by Eliza R. Snow who felt inspired to write it after Joseph Smith, Jr. had taught her the principle of heavenly parents. Interesting in terms of Mormon theology in that it is the one of the few authoritative references to the Heavenly Mother, who is assumed to exist but remains otherwise officially unacknowledged. The words of the hymn follow below. O My Father, Hymn No. 292 in the 1985 LDS Hymnbook. 1. O my Father, thou that dwellest In the high and glorious place, When shall I regain thy presence And again behold thy face? In thy holy habitation, Did my spirit once reside? In my first primeval childhood, Was I nurtured near thy side? 2. For a wise and glorious purpose Thou acrobat readerhast placed me here on earth And withheld the recollection Of my former friends and birth, Yet ofttimes a secret something Whispered, Youre a stranger here, And I felt that I had wandered From a more exalted sphere. 3. I had learned to call thee Father, Thru thy Spirit from on high, But, until the key of knowledge Was restored, I knew not why. In the heavns are parents single? No, the thought makes free adobe acrobat readerreason stare Truth is reason, truth eternal Tells me Ive a mother there. 4. When I leave this frail existence, When I lay this mortal by, acrobat distillerFather, Mother, may I meet you In your adobe acrobatroyal courts on high? Then, at length, when Ive completed All you sent free adobe acrobat readerme forth to do, With blytheh7twyour mutual approbation Let me come and dwell with you.

Blackcap



regnum Animalia
Phylum Chordate
Classis bird
Ordo Passeriformes
Familia Sylviidae
Genus Typical warbler
Species atricapilla
Binomial name Sylvia atricapilla
(Carolus Linnaeus, 1758) The Blackcap, Sylvia atricapilla, is a common and widespread Old World warbler which breeds throughout northern and temperate Europe. This small passerine bird is bird migration, and northern and central European breeders winter in southern Europe and north Africa, where the local populations are resident. It is hardier than most warblers, partly because it will readily eat small berries as well as the more typical warbler insect diet. An interesting development in recent years is for substantial numbers of central European birds to winter in gardens in southern England. Presumably the acrobat downloadready availability of food, and the avoidance of migration over the Alps, compensates for the sub-optimal climate. This is a bird of shady woodlands with ground cover adobe acrobat free downloadfor nesting. The nest is built in low shrub, and 3-6 Egg (biology) are laid. This is a robust warbler, mainly grey in plumage. Although most warblers have the sexes identical, several braddockl581Sylvia species have distinct male acrobat reader free downloadand female plumages. The male has a small marlyssajbotblack cap, which in the female is light brown. The song is adobe acrobat readera pleasant chattering with adobe acrobat downloadsome acrobat reader downloadclearer notes like a Blackbird. The song can be confused with that of the Garden Warbler.

Naval officer ranks



Navy Navies have military rank systems that often are quite different from those of army armies or air forces. Sometimes, services that are considered parts of the navy – marine or amphibious corps – use the army-style ranks instead, while the ranks listed here are reserved for fleets.

NATO Rank Codes

To assist in the comparison of ranks in the armed forces of different countries, established NATO rank codes are used. These are established codes for determining the seniority of officer and other ranks in NATO countries for a particular joint task group or command structure, although specific appointments designate a higher level of seniority over other equivalent rank codes in a given situation. Officer ranks go from OF-1 (applying to all subaltern officers below captain) acrobat reader free downloadup to OF-10, OF(D) being a special category for trainee officers awaiting a commission. Other Ranks (those considered enlisted men in the United States forces) are classified from OR-1 to OR-9. Warrant Officers in the United States forces are a special case as single track career specialists between the enlisted and officer ranks in terms of seniority, and have no NATO rank code. The system should not be confused with the pay grades used in the US military. While countries outside the NATO command structure (including some NATO member courtiers such as France) do not strictly fall into this classification structure and there may be incidences of overlap (particularly in OR ranks between countries) the codes still provide a useful gauge in determining what ranks are broadly equivalent

Other officers

Captain is the common address to commanders of a naval ship, regardless of his actual rank. As a rank, naval Captains are in most services far senior to army Captains, and equivalent to Colonels. An exception is the Royal Swedish Navy Swedish Navy, where kapten refers to the same rank as in the Swedish Army army. Country OF-5 OF-4 OF-3 OF-2 OF-1

Ciphertext stealing



In cryptography, ciphertext stealing is a variation of Cipher Block Chaining (CBC) that does not require any Padding (cryptography), at the cost of significantly increased complexity.

Encryption procedure

If the plaintext length is not a multiple of the Block size (cryptography), Padding (cryptography) it with enough zero bits adobe acrobat free downloaduntil it is.
Encrypt the plaintext using the Cipher Block Chaining Block cipher modes of operation.
Swap the last two ciphertext blocks.
Truncate the ciphertext to the length of the original plaintext.

Decryption procedure

If the ciphertext length is not a multiple adobe acrobat readerof the block size, say it is n bits short, then pad it adobe acrobat free downloadwith the last n bits of the block cipher decryption of cailin3t8sthe last full ciphertext block.
Swap the last two acrobat reader downloadciphertext blocks.
Decrypt the ciphertext using the Cipher Block Chaining Block cipher modes of operation.
Truncate the plaintext to the length of the original ciphertext. Proof that this decryption procedure really is the inverse of the encryption procedure is left as an exercise for the download adobe acrobat readerreader. While it is an interesting mechanism to avoid padding, ciphertext stealing does not appear to be widely used. This is probably because much simpler solutions are available, such as using the block cipher in counter mode (CTR), or using a stream cipher. Ciphertext stealing also requires the plaintext to be longer than one Block size (cryptography). A workaround is to use a different mode of encryption when the plaintext length is one block dorotheeqo87or less, such as XORing the plaintext with block cipher encryption of adobe acrobat downloadthe Initialization vector.

Edward James Montagu Stuart Wortley



The Honourable Edward James Montagu-Stuart-Wortley was a United Kingdom general during the World War I who is best remembered as the first British general to be dismissed during the Battle of the Somme (1916). On 1 June, 1914, Major General Montagu-Stuart-Wortley became GOC of the British 46th (North Midland) Division, a Territorial Force division (military). He was old and in ill-health, suffering from sciatica and probably not fit for operational command. In 1916 one officer described him as: a worn-out man, who never visited his front line and was incapable of inspiring any enthusiasm. The division first saw action in France during the Battle of Loos when it made a costly attack against the Hohenzollern Redoubt. As part of General Edmund Allenby, 1st Viscount Allenbys British Third Army, the 46th Division was involved in the diversion at Gommecourt on the first day on the Somme, 1 July, 1916. The initial assault at 7.30am had failed completely and Montagu-Stuart-Wortley was called upon the renew the attack at midday, the neighbouring British 56th (1st London) Division having made some adobe acrobat free downloadprogress and needing support. With no artillery preparation or smoke screen, it was clear to Montagu-Stuart-Wortley that there was no prospect of success so at 3.30pm he ordered a token effort acrobat reader free downloadto be made by two company (military). In adobe acrobat downloadthe end only one platoon went over with only one man surviving unscathed. The divisions attack failed completely and it had the distinction of suffering the lowest casualties, 2,455 killed, wounded and missing, of all 13 British divisions involved on acrobat reader downloadthe day. In the opinion of the British VII Corps commander, Lieutenant General T. dO. Snow: the 46th Division... showed a lack of offensive spirit. I can only attribute this to the fact that its commander, Major-General the Hon. E.J. Montagu-Stuart-Wortley, is not of an age, neither has he fatinahg8ymthe constitution, to allow him to be as much among his men in buthaynaht09nthe front lines as is necessary to imbue all ranks with confidence and spirit. General Allenby ordered a Court of Inquiry but on 5 July, before it had even delivered its findings, he sacked Montagu-Stuart-Wortley. Given that Montagu-Stuart-Wortleys orders prior to the attack had been to occupy the ground that is won adobe acrobat 70by the artillery it is hard to view his dismissal as anything other than a search for a scapegoat and punishment for not losing enough adobe acrobat 70men.

Xenia, Grand Duchess of Russia



Grand Duchess Xenia Alexandrovna Romanova (In Russian language) was born on 6 April, 1875 in St Petersburg and died 20 April, 1960 at Wilderness House in Hampton Court, England. She was the daughter of Tsar Alexander III of Russia and Dagmar of Denmark and sister of the last crowned Tsar Nicholas II of Russia and, his brief uncrowned successor, their brother Grand Duke Michael of Russia. Xenia Alexandrovna married Grand Duke Alexander Mikhailovich Romanov (a grandson of Nicholas I of Russia on 6 August 1894 (25th July in the old style Russian callender) at Peterhof. Together they had seven acrobat distillerchildren.
