William Hutchinson (privateer)

William Hutchinson

William Hutchinson (1715 probably in Newcastle upon Tyne, England – February 11, 1801 in Liverpool, England) was an English mariner, privateer, author, and inventor who developed parabolic reflectors for lighthouses and helped establish possibly the world’s first lifeboat station.
Hutchinson was a seaman by the late 1730s, serving on an East Indiaman trading in India and China. After service in the Royal Navy, he entered the employ of merchant and privateer Fortunatus Wright. Hutchinson was captured by the French in 1746 in the Perl, but by 1748 was master of the St. George, which captured a French ship. A voyage in 1750 as captain of Wright’s Lowestoft ended in shipwreck, and Hutchinson later claimed that only a timely rescue saved him from being eaten by the survivors in his lifeboat, as he had drawn the short straw. After time ashore in Liverpool, he later returned to privateering, captaining the 22-gun frigate Liverpool (1757-8).
In 1759, Hutchinson was appointed dockmaster at Liverpool, and he held this and other positions at the harbour until 1793. In 1764 he started keeping detailed tide and weather records, and his data – the earliest continuous set of tidal records in the United Kingdom – contributed to the production of Holden’s Tide Tables, which continued in use until the 1970s. In 1777 he first published A Treatise on Practical Seamanship…, which went through a number of editions and by 1794 was titled A Treatise on Naval Architecture…; it contained Hutchinson’s advice and ideas on seamanship, ship design, and other maritime subjects, as well as autobiographical material.
Around 1763 Hutchinson installed what may have been the first parabolic reflector in a lighthouse in the new Leasowe Lighthouse, and later at a lighthouse in Hoylake. He also experimented with oil-burning lights for lighthouses, invented a new rudder and a better quick-priming mechanism for large guns, and worked with Dr. Thomas Houlston on better methods of artificial respiration for drowning victims. He helped establish possibly the world’s first lifeboat station, at Formby.
In 1789 Hutchinson helped found the Liverpool Marine Society for indigent seamen, widows of seamen, and their families; he contributed 100 guineas.

Deven Chaudhary (Ajay Devgan) lives with his mother (Farida Jalal) and only son Raj (Vatsal Sheth). Deven spends considerable time designing the perfect car, calling it DC — which is very futuristic and more advanced than any other car in the market — and registering its patent. He also looks after an older model car, handed over to him by his late father, and calls it “Taarzan”. He meets with Rakesh Kapoor (Pankaj Dheer) and his partners, who praise his design but decline dealing with him.
Later, Deven finds that Rakesh and his partners conned him and registered his design under their name. Deven reports this to a police officer, Inspector Sanjay Sharma (Deepak Shirke), but the latter turns out to be on Kapoor’s payroll. Kapoor, along with his cronies and Sharma, attack and lock Deven in his car. The car is then pushed into the river, causing a bound and gagged Deven to die. Unaware of the truth behind Deven’s death, his mother decides to bring up her grandson alone.
12 Years later, Raj studies at college and falls in love with a rich girl named Priya (Ayesha Takia). A young Raj now wor

Arcanum joviale

Arcanum joviale, in pre-modern medicine, is a preparation made of an amalgama of mercury and tin, digested in spirit of nitre. The nitre being drawn off, the remaining matter is wetted with spirit of wine, and the spirit burnt away. This is repeated several times till the pungent taste is gone. What remains was used much with the same intentions as antihecticum poterii, and was recommended by some as a sudorific.

List of Denver Broncos head coaches

Sports Authority Field at Mile High (formerly Invesco Field at Mile High) has been the home of the Broncos since 2001.

The Denver Broncos are a professional American football franchise based in Denver, Colorado. They are members of the West Division of the American Football Conference (AFC) in the National Football League (NFL). The team began playing in 1960 as a charter member of the American Football League (AFL), and joined the NFL as part of the AFL-NFL merger. The team has played their home games at Sports Authority Field at Mile High since 2001.[1] The Broncos are currently owned by Pat Bowlen.[2]
There have been 15 head coaches for the Broncos franchise. The franchise’s first head coach was Frank Filchock, who coached until 1961.[3] Mike Shanahan is the franchise’s all-time leader for the most regular season games coached (208), the most regular season game wins (130), and the most playoff game wins (8).[4] Shanahan and Dan Reeves, are tied for the most playoffs games coached (13).[4][5] Shanahan was the first Broncos head coach to win a Super Bowl following the 1997 season, and repeated the feat following the 1998 season.[4] The Broncos next Super Bowl victory was for Super Bowl 50 following the 2015 season under the leadership of coach Gary Kubiak who had previously played for Denver and served as an assistant coach. Jack Faulkner, John Ralston, Red Miller, and Reeves have been named the United Press International (UPI) NFL Coach of the Year, at least once with the Broncos.[6] Filchock, Faulkner, Mac Speedie, Jerry Smith, Ralston, and Miller spent their entire coaching careers with the Broncos.[3][7][8][9][10][11] Speedie, Ray Malavasi, Miller, Shanahan, and Kubiak have been assistant coaches with the Broncos before they became head coaches with the Broncos.[12]

The Profit Pools is a strategy model that can be used to help managers or companies focus on profits, rather than on revenue growth. The method was conceived by Orit Gadiesh and James L. Gilbert, both consultants at Bain & Co. presented the following definitions: “the total profits earned at all points along the value chain of an industry. Companies that see what others do not see, will be best prepared for capturing a larger share of the profits in an industry.”[1]
The idea states that managers need to look beyond revenues to see the shape of their industry’s profit pool. Strategies can then be created which result in profitable growth. While the concept is simple, the structure of Profit Pools can usually be quite complex. Some segments of the value chain will have deeper pool than the others. The depths may also vary within an individual segment. For example, the profitability of a segment may vary widely by customer group, product category, geographic market, and distribution channel. The pattern of profit concentration in an industry will often differs from the pattern of revenue concentration.
The model is often applied to identify new sources of profit, to rethink the role of a company in the Value Chain, refocusing a company on its traditional sources of profit, and also applied when making product, pricing and operational decisions.

Collagen alpha-1(IV) chain (COL4A1) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the COL4A1 gene on chromosome 13.[4][5] It is ubiquitously expressed in many tissues and cell types.[6] COL4A1 is a subunit of the type IV collagen and plays a role in angiogenesis.[7] Mutations in the gene have been linked to diseases of the brain, muscle, kidney, eye, and cardiovascular system.[8][9][10][11] The COL4A1 gene also contains one of 27 SNPs associated with increased risk of coronary artery disease.[12]
