Bleckåsen är en by i Alsens distrikt (Alsens socken) i Krokoms kommun colored water in glass bottles, Jämtlands län. Byn är belägen i västra delen av distriktet vid länsväg Z 666. I byn börjar även länsväg Z 671 mot Kaxås. Bleckåsen präglas av jordbruksnäringen.

Byn omtalas första gången år 1346 (Blechasen). Enligt en sägen ska byns befolkning ha dött ut under digerdöden, men därefter åter igen ha blivit bebyggt genom en Ulf som kom dit från Norge med sina sju söner (Ulf i Blikas).

Bleckåsen har liksom övriga delar av Alsen varit skådeplats för strider mellan Sverige och Danmark-Norge. Ett sådant tillfälle var 1563–1564 då strider utkämpades på gränsen mellan Alsens och Mörsils socknar bottle belt running. I samband med Baltzarfejden 1611 drabbades flera Bleckåsbor. Genom freden i Brömsebro 1645 blev Bleckåsen och övriga Alsen svenskt retro footy shirts, men striderna mellan Sverige och Danmark-Norge blossade upp igen åren 1675–1679. Hösten 1677 utkämpades strider i Alsen.

I samband med dansk-svenska kriget 1808–1809 ägde strider rum i Alsen, och den 24 juli 1809 nådde norska trupper Bleckåsen. Det svenska försvaret leddes av general Georg Carl von Döbeln. Nästkommande dag träffades von Döbeln och de norska truppernas ledare kapten Georg Frederik von Krogh i skogen vid Bleckåsen, och undertecknade vapenstilleståndet på ryggen på en soldat glass drinking bottle with caps.

Vid landsvägen mellan Bleckåsen och Mörsil finns två minnesstenar över konventionen i Bleckåsen.

Karib’il Watar

no comment

Karibʾīl Watar I ibn Dhamarʿali, o Karibʾīl Watar il Grande, figlio di Dhamarʿali, è stato il sovrano sabeo più importante dell’antico regno di Saba, nell’Arabia meridionale, all’inizio del VII secolo a.C.

Altre testimonianze riguardanti il sovrano sono ancora oggetto di studio e valutazione. manual meat tenderizer.

Fritz Hommel lo identificò alla fine del XIX secolo come il Karibilu evocato nelle Cronache assire (rovine di Akitu ad Assur) nell’anno 685 a.C. come importante tributario del sovrano assiro Sennacherib (705 a.C.-680 a.C.). Altri specialisti, tra cui Nikolaus Rhodokanakis, hanno notato l’esistenza di numerosi detentori del titolo onorifico di Mukarrib e del nome di Karibʾīl Watar ibn Dhamarʿali, tra il VII e il V secolo a.C.

Il regno di Awsān, aveva conquistato gran parte dei territori dei due piccoli regni vassalli del regno di Saba: l’Hadramawt e il Qataban. Karibʾīl Watar intraprese quindi una spedizione vero SO: Sa’d, Nuqbat, Maʿāfir, Zabir, Zulm, Arway, Dhubhan et Shargab (tra l’attuale Sana’a e la regione di Bab el-Mandeb), uccidendo 3000 nemici e facendo 8000 prigionieri.

Poi si ebbe la vera guerra contro Awsān. Col sostegno dell’Hadramawt, del Qataban e delle città del Haram, e probabilmente Kaminahu, attraversò Wusr, il cuore d’Awsān, da ovest a est, poi volse verso nord, nel Gurdan che apparteneva all’Hadramawt, oggi Wadi Jirdan. Solo allora l’esercito sabeo inflisse una disfatta al re di Awsān, vicino alla città costiera di Dathina, che distrusse. L’ultima sconfitta la inflisse a Muratta, re di Wusr, di cui distrusse il palazzo chiamato Maswar, eliminandone le iscrizioni.

Benché la regione occidentale di Awsān lo avesse visto trionfare già nella prima campagna militare, Karib’il Watari riprese una nuova spedizione in questa direzione e distrusse i domini di Dahas e di Tubanay, a nord di Aden, e annetté Dathina, affidando l’Awd all’antico re Dahas.

Poi il rapporto dà un lungo elenco di città e di territori di Awsān annessi. Il cuore di Awsān entrò a far parte dei domini di Saba, e gli alleati Hadramawt e Qataban ripresero possesso dei loro territori occupati anticamente da Awsān.

La prima fu condotta contro Kahad di Sawt, nella parte occidentale dell’Hadramawt.

Con l’appoggio delle città-Stato del Jawf, di Haram e di Kaminahu, attaccò il comune vicino Nashan, suo antico alleato, e lo distrusse dopo due anni di assedio, così come due altre oasi di al-Jawf. Questa campagna militare è anche nota grazie a un’iscrizione dedicatoria di un tempio nel Haram, in cui un certo Ḥnbṣm bin Ḥlwm’m dice che il re di haram l’ha incaricato – sotto la guida del signore haramita, di combattere contro Awsān e Nashan.

In una seconda campagna, assediò Nashan e la città vicina di Nashq per tre anni, e la sconfisse. I suoi territori ricevuti da Saba furono confiscati, le città che dipendevano da Nashan furono annesse a Saba, i muri rasi al suolo e il palazzo reale, l ‘Afrawu, di Nashan fu distrutto. Fu edificato, in mezzo alla città, un santuario dedicato al dio lunare sabeo Almaqah e i Sabei furono insediati nella città. I re alleati, Yadhmurmalik di Haram, e Nabat’aliy di Kaminahu, vennero ricompensati col sistema d’irrigazione che era stato predisposto da Nashan. Nashq fu nuovamente fortificata e abitata dai Sabei. Le città di Yadhun, Guzbatne e ‘Arab, non sono state invece localizzate, come anche Sabl, Haram e Fanananqui, a nord di Sana’a.

L’ultima spedizione fu diretta contro tre possedimenti di Najran, Muha’mir, Amir e Awhab: cosa che consentì a Saba d’impadronirsi dell’oasi di Najran e di controllare il punto di partenza della cosiddetta “Via dell’incenso”. Se il tributo agli Assiri è attribuibile a questo sovrano, ciò potrebbe significare il raggiungimento di un accordo internazionale riguardante la “Via dell’incenso”.

Karib’il Watar avviò anche un gran numero di lavori pubblici what is tenderizing meat, fra cui la riparazione e l’ampliamento dei sistemi irrigativi avanzati della capitale sabea di Ma’rib.

Consolidò del pari un gran numero di città nel regno di Saba, di Awsān, nelle parti anticamente occupate da Awsān del Qataban e del Jawf.

Diresse l’ampliamento del palazzo Sahl e probabilmente del palazzo Salhin di Ma’rib.

Space Opera (novel)

no comment

Space Opera is a novel by the American science fiction author Jack Vance, first published in 1965 (New York: Pyramid Books).

This is a ‘stand-alone’ work, not part of any of Vance’s numerous novel sequences, though the human-colonized stellar regions in which it takes place are similar to that of many of his stories. (Attempts to classify it as a member of Vance’s ‘Gaean Reach’ sequence are undoubtedly mistaken; the term does not occur in it and the book was written some years earlier than those which clearly form that series. It also seems to take place at a much earlier stage of human expansion through the galaxy.) It is one of his most frankly comic tales, though in fact almost all his books contain subversively comedic elements.

The comedy begins with the title. The term ‘space opera’ is understood in SF circles to connote a colourful interstellar adventure, a clash of good and evil with all the panoply and apparatus of spacefleets and galactic empires. Vance’s novel is instead about an opera company touring in outer space. (He has stated that the title was not his choice: he was commissioned to write a book with that title, and this was what he came up with.)

On Earth, audiences are entranced by the musical entertainments staged by an alien troupe, the Ninth Company of the planet Rlaru. Dame Isabel Grayce (one of a long line of formidable society matrons in Vance’s works) has sponsored the entertainments; when the Ninth Company disappears without a trace, she proposes to recoup her losses and bring culture to the wastes of space by forming an opera company which Adolph Gondar (the discoverer of Rlaru) will pilot on a tour of suitable planets, with Rlaru as ultimate destination. Singers, orchestra, a British conductor (Sir Henry Rixon) are engaged; an argumentative critic, Bernard Bickel, who thinks the Ninth Company were fakes, is hired as musical consultant. Dame Isabel’s indolent and aptly named nephew Roger Wool (one of a long line of Vancian put-upon nephews) tags along also, smuggling his new girlfriend Madoc Roswyn, who claims to be a simple girl from Merioneth in Wales, aboard the ship as a stowaway.

Like many of Vance’s works, the novel is a picaresque; Gondar has his own reasons for not returning to Rlaru, and diverts the company half way round the galaxy, with various adventures or humiliations occurring on the different planets they touch down on. (There are some similarities with Vance’s later novel Showboat World, which has a travelling company presenting performances of Shakespeare’s Macbeth to generally uncomprehending audiences along an immense river on a distant planet expandable fanny pack.) Over the course of the voyage, the company stages several celebrated works sweater fabric, such as Beethoven’s Fidelio, Mozart’s The Magic Flute and Così fan tutte, Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, and Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde and Flying Dutchman. These are performed before various human or non-human audiences, the libretti and costumes sometimes having to be adapted to become understandable to alien cultures. On the whole, due to such cultural disparities, their reception is far from that expected by Dame Isabel: on a penal colony planet, for instance, the performances are made the cover for a jail-break; on a planet inhabited by a race priding themselves on their musical talents, the productions are vetted by an artistic inspector and the company is fined for every unresolved dissonance in the scores performed; on still another, the performance is mistaken for a trade exhibition and the aliens attempt to buy some of the singers.

While Gondar is confined to his cabin, apparently insane, Madoc Roswyn induces his deputy to take the ship to the distant planet Yan. It emerges that her remote ancestors inhabited a land now sunk beneath the Bay of Biscay whose people had colonized that planet and there developed a high civilization. (Here we detect the germ of Vance’s later major fantasy trilogy Lyonesse, the heroine of whose third volume is named Madouc.) A group had returned to Earth thousands of years later, but their spacecraft was destroyed and they were forced to settle in Wales, ever intending to return to Yan. Madoc is their last descendant. She is disappointed by what she finds: Yan’s cities are dust and its folk have reverted to barbarism, hiding in the forests. Although the company present Debussy’s Pelléas to try to establish communication with the unseen inhabitants, they barely escape with their lives.

Eventually the voyage ends at Rlaru. It turns out that Gondar had abducted the Ninth Company from the planet; he is suitably punished by the natives, who demonstrate a capacity to creatively manipulate illusion and environment far beyond anything their Earth visitors can achieve. They listen to several operas with mounting boredom, but are utterly entranced by an impromptu washboard jazz band formed by some members of the crew, which has been a source of annoyance to the opera-lovers throughout the voyage. (Vance was at one time a jazz musician.) Dame Isabel returns to Earth, chastened but determined not to admit it; Roger marries Madoc Roswyn and begins writing a book describing the voyage.

Aksel Andreassens Bilruter

Aksel Andreassens Bilruter var et rutebilselskap på Andenes, Andøya i Nordland. Grunnleggeren Aksel Andreassen (1900-1983) begynte transport med hest og vogn, men i fikk første bil i 1924. Aksel Andreassen var leder for selskapet helt til det i 1971 gikk inn i Andøy Trafikklag AS i 1971. Selskapets hovedrute var i alle år ruta Andenes – Risøyhamn (52 km). Det var det korrespondanse med Hurtigruten og kystgodsrutene.

Andreassen fikk første bil, en T-Ford i 1924. Året etter fikk han en lastebil som han brukte til transport av fersk fisk til Risøyhamn for videretransport med Hurtigruten. I 1930 kjøpte han første personbuss, og det ble raskt flere busser og lastebiler. Veistrekningen Andenes – Risøyhamn kunne være problematisk vinterstid. i det lave terenget ble veien lett uframkommelig pga. mye vind og snø. Trafikken utviklet seg likevel, og alt før krigen hadde Andreassen en stab på 12 sjåfører

1. januar 1947 ble bedriften Aksel Andreassens Bilruter etablert, men fremdeles som personlig firma non leak water bottle.

Aksel Andreassens Bilruter var første rutebilbedrift som fikk inngått avtale om samtrafikk med hurtigrutene og kystgodsrutene cute water bottles.

I 1964 ble det åpnet sivile flyruter på Andenes flyplass. Andenes ble dermed et viktig knutepunkt for regionen. Med dette ble det mye mer persontrafikk på bussene til Risøyhamn, og med korrespondanse videre til Sortland og Stokmarknes, med rutene til Vesterålens Trafikklag. Med dette ble det også korrespondanse videre sørover til Fauske og Bodø, men korrespondanse med nattogene på Nordlandsbanen.

På 1950- og 1960-tallet ble grunnskolen utbygd og sentralisert, og skolebarnkjøring ble etter hvert en stor aktivitet.

Utover 1960-tallet endret trafikkmønsteret seg en del. Trafikken til og fra hurtigrutene på Risøyhamn gikk tilbake. Mer av persontrafikken gikk på vei og med fly, og godstrafikken utviklet seg til langtransport med godsbiler og vogntog.

Aktiviteten i selskapet ble større, og med en arbeidsstokk på 50 personer var Aksel Andreassens Bilruter kommunens største arbeidsplass.

På 1960-tallet endret trafikken seg og det ble behov for mer samordning. Det gikk også mot større selskaper. I 1966 overtok Aksel Andreassens Bilruter rutene som Alferd Madsen hadde drevet på strekningen Bleik – Andenes fra 1920-tallet. Men overtakelsen fulgte også Madsens tre busser.

Det ble mye vekst i denne trafikken etter at Andøy Trafikklag ble etablert og tok over trafikken fra 1971.

René Duprée

no comment

René Emile Goguen (born December 15, 1983) is a Canadian professional wrestler, better known by his ring name René Duprée. Goguen is best known for his tenure in World Wrestling Entertainment, where he is a one-time World Tag Team Champion with Sylvain Grenier as the tag team La Résistance and a one-time WWE Tag Team Champion with Kenzo Suzuki. By winning the World Tag Team Championship, Goguen became the youngest wrestler to win the tag team title at 19 years old. He is also the youngest champion of any kind in WWE, and the first wrestler in WWE to win a title as a teenager. He is the son of Canadian Maritimes wrestling promoter Emile Duprée.

As his father Emile was a wrestling promoter, Goguen was exposed and encouraged into wrestling at a young age. Goguen became a professional wrestler in 1997 at age 13, and began working for his father’s Grand Prix Wrestling promotion. A few years later, he signed a developmental contract with World Wrestling Entertainment, and was sent to Ohio Valley Wrestling to further develop his skills.

in April 2002 Goguen signed with the World Wrestling Federation making him the youngest wrestler to sign with the WWF at the age of 18 on October 9, 2002 Goguen debuted under the ring name René Duprée after his father defeating Johnny Jeter the next two weeks he defeated Jeter again in a rematch the next week he was defeated in a six-man tag team match with Lance Cade and Sean O’Haire against Charlie Haas, Big Boss Man and Mr. P on November 14, 2002 episode of WWE Smackdown Duprée was defeated by Chris Kanyon in a dark match. on December 11, 2002 Duprée defeated Rob Conway. on January 8, 2003 Dupreé and Cade defeated Charlie Haas and Rob Conway on January 15, 2003 Duprée was defeated by Nova (wrestler) in a dark match then the next week Duprée defeated Chris Cage, on February 5, 2003 Duprée defeated Rob Conway the next week Nick Dinsmore and Rob Conway defeated Duprée and Cade by disqualification on February 17, 2003 episode of WWE Raw Duprée and Cade were defeated by The Dudley Boyz in a dark match on February 26, 2003 Duprée and Cade defeated BJ Payne and Matt Morgan on March 5, 2003 Duprée and Cade lost the vacant OVW Southern Tag Team Championship to The Disciples of Synn on March 19, 2003 Cade and Duprée with Kenny Bolin defeated Mark Magnus and Mark Jindrak on March 26, 2003 Cade and Duprée were defeated by The Acolytes Protection Agency on April 11, 2003 Duprée and Cade were defeated by The APA in what would be Duprée’s final appearance in OVW.

After weeks of vignettes airing, Sylvain Grenier and Duprée made their first appearance on the April 28, 2003 episode of Raw as La Résistance by attacking Scott Steiner. Steiner had made remarks two weeks earlier comparing France to hell and Grenier and Duprée were offended. La Résistance went on to feud with Scott Steiner and Test, who was forced to be Steiner’s tag team partner by Stacy Keibler. La Résistance ended up defeating Steiner and Test at Judgment Day on May 18, 2003 in the team’s pay-per-view debut.

On June 15, 2003, La Résistance won the World Tag Team Championship from Kane and Rob Van Dam at Bad Blood, making Duprée the youngest wrestler in WWE history to not only win the World Tag Team Championship, but any championship in the company’s history at 19 years old. Also, as a result of winning the title, he was the first teenager in the history of the WWE that has won a championship.

The third member of La Résistance, Rob Conway, was originally introduced as an unnamed American serviceman being abused by Grenier and Duprée. When The Dudley Boyz came out to attack La Résistance, they brought Conway into the ring with an American flag. Once the Dudley Boyz had their backs turned, Conway attacked them with the American flag and then tore it off the pole and laid it on top of them. Conway, now renamed to Robért Conway, joined Duprée and Grenier and the trio began carrying the French flag to ringside and singing the French national anthem before their matches. La Résistance dropped the titles to the Dudley Boyz at Unforgiven in a three-on-two handicapped tables match. The trio went on to feud with several tag teams, including the Dudley Boyz, Rosey and The Hurricane, and Garrison Cade and Mark Jindrak.

In October 2003, Grenier suffered a back injury. Duprée and Conway held the tag team together until Grenier returned in the Spring of 2004. At Armageddon, La Résistance competed in a Tag Team Turmoil match for the World Tag Team Championship which was won by Ric Flair and Batista. At the Royal Rumble, Duprée competed in the 30-man Royal Rumble match where he eliminated Matt Hardy before getting eliminated by Rikishi. At Wrestlemania XX, La Résistance (René Duprée and Rob Conway) competed in a Fatal four-way tag team match for the World Tag Team Championship but failed to win the titles. Grenier returned in March 2004, thus reuniting the trio. The reunion did not last long, as Duprée was the first pick in the 2004 WWE Draft Lottery on March 22.

Duprée made his SmackDown! debut on the March 25, 2004 episode of SmackDown! by defeating Billy Kidman. He briefly had a talk show on SmackDown!, called “Cafe de René”, but his only guest was Torrie Wilson as the segment was cancelled after only one night. Duprée wrestled WWE Diva Torrie Wilson to a draw on the April 27, 2004 edition of SmackDown. For several months, he went for the United States Championship, held by John Cena. After an incident that happened during his “Cafe de René” (the same incident involving Torrie Wilson), Duprée challenged Cena to a title match. The match was granted by the then-SmackDown! General Manager Kurt Angle and it took place at Judgment Day that May. Cena retained the title when he pinned Dupree after executing an F-U. At The Great American Bash, Duprée competed in a Four-way elimination match for the WWE United States Championship which saw Cena retain once again.

After losing to Cena, he focused on the WWE Tag Team Championship and eventually won the title with Kenzo Suzuki on September 9 (making him the youngest man to win the WWE Tag Team Championship at age 20). They lost the championship on the December 9 episode of SmackDown! to Rob Van Dam and Rey Mysterio. This match happened just days before Van Dam and Mysterio were to challenge Duprée and Suzuki at Armageddon. At the pay-per-view, Duprée and Suzuki had a championship rematch, but they were unable to regain the tag title. At the 2005 Royal Rumble, Duprée competed in the 30-man Royal Rumble match where he was eliminated by Chris Jericho. On the February 20 edition of Sunday Night Heat before the No Way Out pay-per-view, Duprée and Suzuki faced Hardcore Holly and Charlie Haas in a losing effort,

On the March 24, 2005 airing of SmackDown!, he was “sacrificed” by The Undertaker as a message to Randy Orton (regarding their match at WrestleMania 21), when The Undertaker interrupted a match between Duprée and Booker T. The result of the “sacrifice” saw René receiving a Tombstone Piledriver on the steel steps which lead up to the ring. Duprée was taken off television after this, working dark matches until the April 28 edition of SmackDown!, where he was defeated by John Cena. Duprée went back to dark matches and a few Velocity matches until the June 18 episode of Velocity, where Duprée came out calling himself “The French Phenom”, defeating Mark Jindrak via submission. The following week on Velocity, Duprée came out with a new look, sporting black trunks with his initials as well as jet black hair and a Dalí-styled goatee.

On June 30, Duprée became one of the last minute trades in the 2005 WWE Draft Lottery, which saw him jump from SmackDown! back to Raw. On the July 4 edition of Raw, Duprée redebuted with his French Phenom gimmick and defeated Val Venis on the same night. Duprée began cutting promos using a new quote referring to himself as “Simply Phenomenal”. Duprée also began a winning streak against superstars such as The Hurricane, Matt Striker and Tajiri before suffering a near career-ending hernia in mid-September.

Once Duprée was cleared to wrestle, WWE sent him back to Ohio Valley Wrestling for training before returning to WWE. On October 19, 2005 Duprée returned to OVW facing Robert Fury in a no contest On February 21, 2007 La Resistance defeated Kofi Kingston and David Hart Smith in what would be Duprée’s final appearance in OVW.

On the August 8 natural meat tenderizer, 2006, episode of ECW on Sci Fi, a promo aired with Duprée, sporting a clean shave and long hair, announcing that he would be debuting for the brand soon. Promos aired throughout the rest of August showing Duprée taking pictures, posing in mirrors, and working out, while claiming he is “the most extreme athlete in ECW history”. Duprée made his ECW debut on September 12, 2006, defeating Balls Mahoney. On the February 20, 2007 episode of ECW on Sci Fi, Duprée reformed La Résistance with Sylvain Grenier, but the team’s reunion was short-lived after Duprée was suspended at the start of March and sent to rehab after violating the Health and Wellness policy.

Bouabdellah (Bob) Tahri (Metz, 20 december 1978) is een Franse oud-atleet, die was gespecialiseerd in de 3000 m steeple. Hij werd Frans kampioen en heeft het Europees record in handen in deze discipline. Tevens was hij gedurende één jaar Europees recordhouder op de 5000 m indoor. Hij nam driemaal deel aan de Olympische Spelen, maar won hierbij geen medailles.

Zijn eerste internationale succes boekte Tahri in 1997, toen hij bij de Europese jeugdkampioenschappen de 5000 m won. Met een tijd van 14.25,71 versloeg hij de Hongaar Ferenc Békési (zilver; 14.25,87) en de Spanjaard Juan Carlos Higuero (brons; 14.31,79). Een jaar later won hij de 3000 m steeple bij de Franse kampioenschappen.

In 2000 maakte hij in Sydney zijn olympische debuut, maar sneuvelde hierbij in de voorrondes. Dat jaar won hij wel zijn eerste gouden medaille bij de Europacupwedstrijden. In totaal won hij in zijn sportcarrière vier gouden en één zilveren medaille bij de Europacupwedstrijden. In 2004 op de Olympische Spelen van Athene eindigde hij op een zevende plaats. Vier jaar later moest hij op de Olympische Spelen van Peking met 8:14.26 genoegen nemen met een zevende plaats.

Bouabdellah Tahri gaf zowel begin 2007 als 2009 blijk van zijn kunnen door bij de Europese indoorkampioenschappen op de 3000 m bij beide gelegenheden een zilveren medaille te winnen. Ook liep hij met 8.02,19 op 3 juli 2009 in zijn geboortestad Metz het Europees record op de 3000 m steeple uit de boeken. Hij nam dit record over van de Nederlander Simon Vroemen, die het met 8.04,95 sinds augustus 2005 in handen had. Een eerder Europees record van Vroemen van 8.06,91 uit 2002 had hij in 2003 al eens geëvenaard. Na afloop van zijn recordverbetering in Metz meldde Tahri: “Ik ben tevreden met mijn prestaties, maar sta nog met beide benen op de grond. Uiteraard ben ik erg blij met het record, maar ik ben altijd goed in het relativeren van mijn successen en tegenslagen. De meeting in Metz was eigenlijk in mijn achtertuin, ik ben daarna naar huis gegaan en heb gegeten met familie. Ik kon alleen de slaap niet vatten.” Simon Vroemen, die na het fietsen van de cyclopsportieve La Marmotte het nieuws per sms las, zei over deze verbetering: “Het is leuk voor Bouabdellah Tahri dat hij nu eindelijk het Europese record in handen heeft. […] Tahri was op alle onderliggende afstanden een stuk sneller dan mij, feitelijk had ik al veel eerder verwacht dat hij het record zou breken phone holder when running. […] Ik gun hem het record van harte, bovendien zijn records er om verbroken te worden.”

Een maand later verbeterde Tahri op de wereldkampioenschappen in Berlijn zijn eigen Europese record opnieuw. In een race die werd gedomineerd door de Kenianen Ezekiel Kemboi, Paul Kipsiele Koech, Richard Mateelong en Brimin Kipruto, wist de Fransman als enige Europeaan aan te haken en tot het einde toe mee te strijden om de overwinning. In een verzengende laatste ronde wrong hij zich tussen het Keniaanse viertal en veroverde hij achter Kemboi (goud met 8.00,43) en Mateelong (zilver met 8.00,89) de bronzen medaille met 8.01,18.

Dat hij zich eveneens goed thuis voelt bij het veldlopen, had de Fransman intussen bewezen door tijdens de Europese veldloopkampioenschappen van 2008 in Brussel in een tijd van 31.21 naar een zesde plaats te snellen, een halve minuut achter de onaantastbare winnaar Serhiy Lebed.

Bob Tahri ging het seizoen 2010 uitstekend van start. Eerst verbeterde hij op 10 februari in Stockholm zijn eigen Franse record op de 3000 m tot 7.33,41, om vier dagen later bij wedstrijden in Metz op de 5000 m het Europese record van 13.11,39 uit 2003 van de Spanjaard Alberto García te verbeteren tot 13.11 travel glass water bottle,13.

Isaak Judovitj Ozimov; født 2. januar 1920 i Petrovitji, Smolensk oblast, Russiske SFSR, død 6. april 1992 i New York, USA) var en russiskfødt amerikansk forfatter og biokemiker. Isaac Asimov blev kendt for sine science fiction-bøger og for sine videnskabelige bøger for lægmand, som han begyndte at udgive som 18-årig. Han udgav cirka 500 bind i sin levetid og var i en lang periode medlem af Mensa camelbak bottle belt. Asimov gav navn til begrebet “robotics”.

Et af Asimovs hovedværker er Foundation serien (på dansk: Stiftelsen). Serien omhandler et gammelt galaktisk imperiums død. Og efterfølgende hvordan et nyt imperium, dedikeret til kunst, videnskab og teknologi oprettes ved hjælp af indsigt i den nye videnskab Psykohistorie travel glass water bottle. Foundation serien betegnes ofte som den bedste, eller i hvertfald den mest indflydelsesrige, science fiction serie, der nogensinde er skrevet football uniform pants.

I værket bindes temaerne sammen af den genialematematiker Hari Seldon’s arbejde med den nye (fiktive) videnskab Psykohistorie.

Asimov er foruden sit store bagkatalog af science fiction også ophavsmanden til “The Three Laws of Robotics”, som er blevet en grundsten i al science fiction der har med robotter at gøre.
