List of college athletic programs in North Dakota

Permalink

The main article is College sports.
Notes:

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)

Permalink

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.
Life[edit]
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

Legislative history

Introduced in the House as H.R. 5662 by Rep. William Reynolds Archer, Jr. (R-TX) on December 14, 2000
Committee consideration by: United States House Committee on Ways and Means

The Community Renewal Tax Relief Act of 2000 (H.R. 5662) is a bill that was introduced into the United States House of Representatives during the 106th United States Congress. The Act was eventually passed as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2001.[1]
The Community Renewal Tax Relief Act of 2000 is intended to improve development in economically distressed areas of the United States. The law offers “tax incentives for businesses to locate and hire residents in urban and rural areas that have not experienced recent economic expansion.”[2] Both rural and urban areas are eligible. Three primary means were used: renewal communities, empowerment zones, and community development entities.[2] The bill also created the New Markets Tax Credit Program, which has been renewed several times and is still in effect.[3]

Provisions of the bill[edit]
One provision of the Community Renewal Tax Relief Act of 2000 was the creation of 40 “renewal communities”.[2] Renewal communities would receive special tax breaks designed to encourage economic growth by generating business investment and job opportunities. Requirements to being designated a renewal community included having a high rate of poverty and high unemployment rate (compared to rates nationwide).[2] The communities must have under 200,000 people in them, but can be any physical size.[2] Local and state governments must be involved with a community gaining this designation. They are required to participate by making their own commitments to taking action to reduce economic burdens on employers and businesses in the area, as well as taking steps to encourage economic growth.[2] If a community is successful in becoming

Background[edit]
Born in the Xinhui District of Jiangmen in Guangdong, China, Lau Kar-wing was the fourth child of Lau Cham (劉湛), a martial arts master who studied under Lam Sai-wing, pupil of the legendary Chinese folk hero, Wong Fei-hung.
Lau began learning kung fu in his early teens. He actually began learning at his father’s school, in secret. However, when his older brother Lau Kar-Leung saw this, he began teaching Kar-wing himself.
Film career[edit]
Before becoming famous, Lau worked as an extra and choreographer on the black & white Wong Fei-hung films, which starred Kwan Tak-hing as the titular hero. Lau was given his start working under his father and brother in these films, and followed his brother to become a stuntman and assistant choreographer.
In the 1960s he became one of the Shaw Brothers Studio’s main action choreographers, working with many directors on films such as King Boxer (1972). Lau evolved to become a director in the late 1970s. By this time he was already an accomplished actor and action choreographer outside of Shaw Brothers.
In the 1970s, Lau formed a partnership with Sammo Hung and Karl Maka. The trio started their own film production company in 1978, Gar Bo Motion Picture Compa

indecs[1] (an acronym of “interoperability of data in e-commerce systems”; written in lower case) was a project partly funded by the European Community Info 2000 initiative and by several organisations representing the music, rights, text publishing, authors, library and other sectors in 1998-2000, which has since been used in a number of metadata activities. A final report and related documents were published; the indecs Metadata Framework document[2] is a concise summary.
indecs provided an analysis of the requirements for metadata for e-commerce of content (intellectual property) in the network environment, focusing on semantic interoperability. Semantic interoperability deals with the question of how one computer system knows what the terms from another computer system mean (e.g. if A says “owner” and B says “owner”, are they referring to the same thing? If A says “released” and B says “disseminated”, do they mean different things?).
indecs was built from a simple generic model of commerce (the “model of making”): a model of the life cycle of any kind of content from conception to the final physical or digital copies. The top-level model is summarised as “people make stuff; people use stuff; and (for commerce to take place) people make deals about the stuff”. If secure machine-to-machine management of commerce is to be possible, the stuff, the people and the deals must all be securely identified and described in standardised ways that machines can interpret and use. Central to the analysis is the assumption that it is possible to produce a generic mechanism to handle complex metadata for all different types of content. So, for example, instead of treating sound carriers, books, videos and photographs as fundamentally different things with different (if similar) characteristics, they are all recognised as creations with different values of the same higher-level attributes, whose metadata can be supported in a common environment.
