U Škripcu (Serbian Cyrillic: У Шкрипцу; trans. In Dire Straits) was a Serbian and former Yugoslav rock band from Belgrade.
The band was formed in 1980 by Zoran Vulović “Vule” (keyboards), Milan Delčić “Delča” (vocals) and Aleksandar Vasiljević “Vasa” (guitar), who decided to expand the lineup of their former band to Miloš Obrenović (drums) and Aleksandar Lukić (bass guitar), and change their name to U Škripcu. At the time of their formation, the band was a part of the Yugoslav new wave scene, the period of work which was documented on the seminal 1981 various artists compilation album Artistička radna akcija. With the debut album release, the 1982 Godine ljubavi, the band moved towards a more experimental post-punk sound, before achieving nationwide commercial success with the release of the album O je! and EP Nove godine!, under the influence of New Romanticism. The original lineup recorded yet another album, the synthpop Budimo zajedno, which was did not repeat the commercial success of its predecessors, causing the band to disband in 1985.
In 1986, Vulović and Delčić reformed the band, but the latter soon left the band, so the new lineup, featuring the vocalist Aleksandar Tabaš and various musicians, recorded the fourth studio album, U Škripcu. Despite the hit song “Vreme je za nas”, the album was not commercially successful, causing the band to disband in 1988. The following year, Vulović reunited with Delčić and Vasiljević, Lukić on guitar, bassist Dejan Škopelja, and drummer Ratko Ljubičić. The lineup recorded the critically acclaimed fifth studio album Izgleda da mi smo sami, after which the band disbanded. Following the disbandment, Vulović became a producer and manager, Delčić pursued a solo career with his band Sklekovi, and Vasiljević and Lukić became a part of the supergroup Familija. In 2007, the original lineup reunited at the Delča i Sklekovi concert at the Belgrade Dom Omladine, which

Main article: The Havana Pitbulls
Reyes is one half of the Havana Pitbulls with Rocky Romero. At Ring of Honor (ROH)’s Reborn: Stage One, the Havana Pitbulls made their ROH debut against then tag champions The Briscoe Brothers in a non title match, which they lost. They later joined Homicide’s alliance, The Rottweilers. The group also featured Julius Smokes, who would manage Reyes along with the rest of the members.
Reyes and Romero wrestled for the ROH Tag Team Championship at Testing The Limit against the champions CM Punk and Colt Cabana. They won the match and became the new champions.[5] They eventually lost the title to Maff and Whitmer.[5]
Reyes took part in the Trios Tournament in 2005 with partners Romero and Homicide. They won the tournament defeating Generation Next in the final match. The three winners of this tournament got to choose any match they wanted. While Homicide and Romero went after the World Title, Reyes wanted a tag title shot against Tony Mamaluke and Sal Rinauro. He picked Homicide as his partner, but they did not win.
In late 2005, Reyes began fighting students from the ROH Wrestling Schoo

Cystatin-S is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CST4 gene.[2][3]
The cystatin superfamily encompasses proteins that contain multiple cystatin-like sequences. Some of the members are active cysteine protease inhibitors, while others have lost or perhaps never acquired this inhibitory activity. There are three inhibitory families in the superfamily, including the type 1 cystatins (stefins), type 2 cystatins and the kininogens. The type 2 cystatin proteins are a class of cysteine proteinase inhibitors found in a variety of human fluids and secretions. The cystatin locus on chromosome 20 contains the majority of the type 2 cystatin genes and pseudogenes. This gene is located in the cystatin locus and encodes a type 2 salivary cysteine peptidase inhibitor. The protein is an S-type cystatin, based on its high level of expression in saliva, tears and seminal plasma. The specific role in these fluids is unclear but antibacterial and antiviral activity is present, consistent with a protective function.[3]

History and amenities[edit]

The church of St. Catwg

Church of St. Catwg[edit]
The church dates from the 13th or 14th century, in the Early English and Perpendicular styles, with some 16th-century features. It was heavily restored in the 1870s.[1] The dedication is to St. Catwg or Cadoc, a Welsh saint of the 6th century. There are porches on both the south and north sides, supposedly so that the squires of Cwmbychan and Trevildu within the parish did not have to enter through the same door as each other.[2]
Craig-y-Dorth[edit]
The hill of Craig-y-Dorth, 1 mile north east of the church, was the site of a battle in 1404 between Owain Glyndŵr’s rebels and English forces. According to the Annals of Owain Glyn Dwr, “Here the more part of the English were slain and they were chased up to the town gate [of Monmouth]”.[3]
High Glanau[edit]
The house at High Glanau was built in 1923 for the writer and garden designer Henry Avray Tipping.[1]
