25th October (2021): Retrocession Day [Taiwan]

Retrocession Day is the name given to the annual observance and unofficial holiday and former public holiday in Taiwan to commemorate the end of Japanese rule of Taiwan and Penghu, and the claimed retrocession (“return”) of Taiwan to the Republic of China on October 25, 1945. However, the idea of “Taiwan retrocession” is in dispute.

Chief Executive of Taiwan Province Chen I (right) accepting the receipt of Order No. 1 signed by Rikichi Andō (left), the last Japanese Governor-General of Taiwan, on behalf of the Republic of China Armed Forces at Taipei City Hall.

Taiwan, then more commonly known to the Western world as “Formosa”, became a colony of the Empire of Japan when the Qing Empire lost the First Sino-Japanese War in 1894 and ceded the island with the signing of the 1895 Treaty of ShimonosekiJapanese rule in Taiwan lasted until the end of World War II.

In November 1943, Chiang Kai-shek took part in the Cairo Conference with Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill, who firmly advocated that Japan be required to return all of the territory it had annexed into its empire, including Taiwan and the Penghu (Pescadores) Islands. Article 8 of the Potsdam Proclamation, drafted by the United StatesUnited KingdomSoviet Union and China in July 1945, reiterated that the provisions of the Cairo Declaration be thoroughly carried out, and the Japanese Instrument of Surrender stated Japan’s agreement to the terms of the Potsdam Proclamation.

Under the authorization of American General Douglas MacArthur‘s General Order No. 1Chen I (Chief Executive of Taiwan Province) was escorted by George Kerr to Taiwan to accept the Japanese government’s surrender as the Chinese delegate. When the Japanese surrendered at the end of World War II, General Rikichi Andōgovernor-general of Taiwan and commander-in-chief of all Japanese forces on the island, signed an instrument of surrender and handed it over to governor-general of Taiwan Chen I, representing the Republic of China Armed Forces to complete the official turnover in Taipei (known during occupation as Taihoku) on October 25, 1945, at Taipei City Hall (now Zhongshan Hall). Chen Yi proclaimed that day to be “Retrocession Day” and organized the island into the Taiwan Province of the Republic of China. Taiwan has since been governed by the Government of the Republic of China.

Incredible: Cristiano Ronaldo’s manchester united loses 5-0 to liverpool

A rampant result at Liverpool’s Old Trafford, which effectively ousted Manchester United from the championship fight and regained second position (-1 from leaders Chelsea) against City. Not even 5 minutes of play and the Reds are already ahead: Milner’s filter for Salah who serves Keita centrally, good at getting in behind Shaw and chilling De Gea with an unstoppable low shot. Question and answer between 9 ‘and 11’: first Bruno Fernandes shoots sensationally high with his right face to face with Alisson, then Firmino’s left cross is blocked in two halves by De Gea. Anyway Diogo Jota thinks about signing the goal of doubling at 13 ‘: mess between Maguire and Shaw, Keita’s opening for Alexander-Arnold and cross that crosses the area and reaches the far post, where the Portuguese is very good at reiterating on the net in split. Cristiano Ronaldo is totally out of the game and can be seen in the 22nd minute, when a counterattack by the Red Devils ends with an imprecise conclusion from the star.

A violent blow from Greenwood forces Alisson to take a plastic flight. On the opposite front De Gea saves his team from the definitive capitulation, hypnotizing Salah in low output, but the Egyptian’s trio is postponed only at 38 ‘: Salah, Firmino and Diogo Jota talk in a handkerchief, then the opening for Keita who serves the number 11 for the crazy 0-3 at Old Trafford. With half-time almost upon us, there is also the time for Salah’s double all undisturbed at the suggestion of Diogo Jota. It is part of the second half and Salah goes for a hat-trick with a delicious touch below after Henderson’s deep throw. 0-5. It pours (it is appropriate to say) in the wet for United: after the goal of the flag canceled to Cristiano Ronaldo, the Var also intervenes on the occasion of the direct red waved then to Pogba, entered the field in the interval, for a bad foul on Keita. In short, patterns and nerves are completely blown and the Red Devils sink to -8 from the top of the standings.

According to reports from The Mirror, Manchester United’s humiliating 5-0 defeat against Liverpool would represent a conviction for Solksjaer who now risks more and more sacking. According to the tabloid, there are three coaches competing for the Red Devils’ bench: the two former Juventus players Antonio Conte and Zinedine Zidane, as well as Brendan Rodgers.

♬ ZUCCHERO – Follow you Follow me

The new single by the Italian singer Zucchero is out: Follow you Follow me. This song, as many remember, is a song from the 70s by Genesis, which the Italian singer has reinterpreted with a brilliant cover.

LYRIC

Stay with me
My love I hope you’ll always be
Right here by my side if ever I needed you
Oh my loveIn your arms
I feel so safe and so secure
Everyday is such a perfect day to spend
Alone with youI will follow you will you follow me
All the days and nights that we know will be
I will stay with you will you stay with me
Just one single tear in each passing yearWith the dark
Oh I see so very clearly now
All my fears are drifting by me so slowly now
Fading awayI can say
The night is long but you are here
Close at hand I’m better for the smile you give
And while I liveI will follow you will you follow me
All the days and nights that we know will be
I will stay with you will you stay with me
Just one single tear in each passing year there will beI will follow you will you follow me
All the days and nights that we know will be
I will stay with you will you stay with me
Just one single tear in each passing yearI will follow you will you follow me
All the days and nights that we know will be
I will stay with you will you stay with me
Just one single tear in each passing year

GAETA (Latina) – PHOTO October 2021

I visited Gaeta on an October afternoon, when the sun’s lights were fading into the twilight of the sunset.
Gaeta is a town almost attached to Formia, the latter a much larger city with a very large port.
Gaeta has the characteristic of being under the slopes of Mount Orlando, overlooking the sea and overlooking the beach. The road from the north to get to the city is very suggestive and at times recalls that of the California coast …

Incredible incident on film set: Alec Baldwin kills the director of photography with a gun (which had to be loaded with blanks)

In the coming months we will certainly investigate more thoroughly what happened on the set of the film “Rust”, where the well-known actor Alec Baldwin accidentally shot (at least for the moment) the director of the photography, killing her.

I vaguely remember other incidents of the kind, but more than anything else they were accidents due to stuntmen who had to do stunts or dangerous scenes …

I don’t remember pistol accidents. Now, while admitting the actor’s good faith, it’s amazing to think how a gun was loaded with live bullets when it only needed to be loaded with blanks.

Baldwin is among the producers of the film while behind the camera of the independent film “Rust” is the director Joel Souza, 48, who was also injured and is now hospitalized at Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical Center in Santa Fe. However, there was nothing to do for director of photography Halyna Hutchins, who was shot and transported in serious condition by air ambulance to the University of New Mexico hospital in Albuquerque, where she died shortly after the arrival of she.

23th October 2021: Mole Day (USA)

Mole Day is an unofficial holiday celebrated among chemists, chemistry students and chemistry enthusiasts on October 23, between 6:02 a.m. and 6:02 p.m., making the date 6:02 10/23 in the American style of writing dates. The time and date are derived from the Avogadro number, which is approximately 6.02×1023, defining the number of particles (atoms or molecules) in one mole (mol) of substance, one of the seven base SI units.

Mole Day originated in an article in The Science Teacher in the early 1980s. Inspired by this article, Maurice Oehler, a high school chemistry teacher from Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, founded the National Mole Day Foundation (NMDF) on May 15, 1991.

Many high schools around the United StatesSouth AfricaAustralia, and Canada celebrate Mole Day as a way to get their students interested in chemistry, with various activities often related to chemistry or moles.

The American Chemical Society sponsors National Chemistry Week, which occurs from the Sunday through Saturday during which October 23 falls. This makes Mole Day an integral part of National Chemistry Week.

♬ SAM FENDER – Long Way Off

The new single from Sam Fender’s new album of 2021 is out.

LYRIC

I’ve seen enough of it
The sides are all cemented
Their incentives look the same
Are they vetted
In the same ways?
As the little guy puts blood and tears
Into pushing deadweight on the capital steps
Bleeding out for a caricature of a ’50s salesman
Hare checklist, tickin’ every box
Dead for what?Standing on the side, I never was the silent type
All the endless grey conundrums that are painted black and white
I heard a hundred million voices sound the same both left and right
We’re still a long way off
We’re still a long way offSome get along with it
They drag around from town to town
With a pretty lie that hoodwinked many of my loved ones
I owe it to my folks for giving me an understanding of a world
Shot my people down
The hungry and divided play into the hands of the man who put them there
So it goesStanding on the side, I never was the silent type
All the endless grey conundrums that are painted black and white
Heard a hundred million voices sound the same both left and right
We’re still a long way offWe’re still a long way off, oh, oh, oh-oh
We’re still a long way off, oh-oh, oh, oh, ohStanding on the side, I never was the silent type
All the endless grey conundrums that are painted black and white
Heard a hundred million voices sound the same both left and right
We’re still a long way offWe’re still a long way off, oh, oh, oh-oh
We’re still a long way off, oh-oh, oh, oh, oh
