In an increasingly tense, hypothetical South Africa, the ruling National Party and newly elected State President Frederick Haymans seek to negotiate diplomatic reforms with the African National Congress (ANC). However, beneath the surface progress has been slow, since the ANC refuses to disarm its militant wing or cease planning guerrilla operations, and Haymans remains solidly opposed to a universal franchise.
South African paratroopers raid an African National Congress base in Zimbabwe. The raiders uncover plans for “Broken Covenant,” an ANC plot to assassinate the government as they travel back to Pretoria from Cape Town aboard the Blue Train for the legislature’s summer recess. The raid comes at a time when the government’s talks with the ANC are approaching a major breakthrough; the ANC decides to abort Broken Covenant, not knowing that the South Africans already have information on the plan. Seeing an opportunity to take power with the leadership eliminated, Internal Security Minister Karl Vorster deliberately excuses himself from the trip. A courier assigned to transmit the abort signal to the ambush team is also killed in a hit-and-run.
With Haymans and his Cabinet killed in the attack, Vorster assumes the presidency and declares marti

St. John’s Episcopal Church is a historic Gothic Revival church in Montgomery, Alabama, United States. It was designed by the New York City architectural firm of Frank Wills and Henry Dudley. The church was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on 24 February 1975.[1]
St. John’s parish was organized in 1834 and by 1837 the parishioners had moved into a modest brick sanctuary on the corner of Perry and Jefferson Streets. After little more than a decade, the church needed to expand after the state capital moved to Montgomery and a rise in cotton production swelled the region’s population. The current building was completed in 1855, in the same city block as the old, but facing Madison Street.[3]

St. John’s Episcopal Church was involved in several historic events around the time of the American Civil War. It hosted the Secession Convention of Southern Churches in 1861, which had helped fuel the South’s secession movement. St. John’s was also the church attended by the Confederate President, Jefferson Davis, when Montgomery was the capital of the Confederate States of America. The church was forced to close its doors in 1865 under Union Army orders, it would reopen for services in 1866.[3]
The old building from the 1830s was torn down in 1869 and its bricks were used to construct an addition to the main structure. The building was expanded again in 1906. The church hosted many Army recruits from the nearby “Camp Sheridan” tent city during World War I, until an outbreak of the Spanish Flu forced the church to temporarily close its doors.
In May 1925, a bronze plaque in honor of President Jefferson Davis was dedicated.[4] John Trotwood Moore, the State Librarian and Archivist of Tennessee, was invited to give a speech.[4]

List of college athletic programs in North Dakota


The main article is College sports.

This list is in a tabular format, with columns arranged in the following order, from left to right:

Athletic team description (short school name and nickname), with a link to the school’s athletic program article if it exists. When only one nickname is listed, it is used for teams of both sexes. (Note that in recent years, many schools have chosen to use the same nickname for men’s and women’s teams even when the nickname is distinctly masculine.) When two nicknames are given, the first is used for men’s teams and the other is used for women’s teams. Different nicknames for a specific sport within a school are noted separately below the table.
Full name of school.
Location of school.
Conference of the school (if conference column is left blank, the school is either independent or the conference is unknown).

Apart from the ongoing conversions, the following notes apply:

Following the normal standard of U.S. sports media, the terms “University” and “College” are ignored in alphabetization, unless necessary to distinguish schools (such as Boston College and Boston University) or are actually used by the media in normally describing the school, such as the College of Charleston.
Schools are also alphabetized by the names they are most commonly referred to by sports media, with non-intuitive examples included in parentheses next to the school name. This means, for example, that campuses bearing the name “University of North Carolina” may variously be found at “C” (Charlotte), “N” (North Carolina, referring to the Chapel Hill campus), and “U” (the Asheville, Greensboro, Pembroke, and Wilmington campuses, all normally referred to as UNC-{campus name}).
The prefix “St.”, as in “Saint”, is alphabetized as if it were spelled out.

Robert Skinner (bishop)


For persons of a similar name, see Robert Skinner.
Robert Skinner (10 February, 1591 – 14 June, 1670) was an English bishop successively of Bristol, Oxford, and Worcester.
He was born on 10 Feb. 1591, the second son of Edmund Skinner, rector of Pitsford, Northamptonshire, and Bridget, daughter of Humphrey Radcliff of Warwickshire. After attending Brixworth grammar school, he was admitted scholar of Trinity College, Oxford in 1607. He graduated B.A. in 1610, and M.A. in 1614. In 1613 he was elected fellow of his college, and until his death interested himself in its welfare. He proceeded B.D. in 1621, and became preacher of St. Gregory’s Church, near St. Paul’s Cathedral. In 1628 he succeeded his father as rector of Pitsford,[1] and shortly after was chosen by Laud to be chaplain-in-ordinary to the king. He was vicar of Launton from 1632.[2]
In 1634, Oxford University granted him a D.D. at the request of William Laud, without the formalities, a move criticized by John Prideaux.[3] He was diplomated or actually created as such on 14 August 1636.[4] In the 1630s Skinner was known for his sermons before Charles I asserting Arminian doctrines.[5] In 1636 he became bishop of Bristol and rector of Greens Norton, Northamptonshire. He retained the living of Launton, to which were soon added those of Cuddesdon, Oxfordshire, and Beckenham, Kent. In Bristol he was active in preaching against Calvinism.[6]
In 1641, he was translated to become Bishop of Oxford. He was one of the bishops who subscribed the protest of 17 Dec. 1641, declaring themselves prevented from attendance in parliament, and was consequently committed by the lords to the Tower, where he remained eighteen weeks. Released on bail he resided at Launton. In 1643 he was deprived of Greens Norton ‘for his malignity against the parliament.’ He was also sequestered from his livings of Cuddesden in 1646 and Beckenham in 1647. During the Commonwealth he secured a licence to preach, and continued in his diocese. He also conferred holy orders throughout England. It is stated by Thomas Warton, in his ‘Life of R. Bathurst’ (p. 35), that Ralph Bathurst secretly examined the candidates, and officiated at Launton as archdeacon.[7][8]
At the Restoration he became one of the king’s commissioners of the university of Oxford, and in 1663 was translated to Worcester. He died on 14 June 1670, and is buried in a chapel at the east end of the choir of Worcester Cathedral. At the head of the inscribed sto
