From the media rights (Star India – ₹16,370.5 crore for five years) to title sponsorship (Vivo – ₹2,199 crore for five years), the cricket world’s biggest commercial venture is miles ahead of any other even in the sport.There are minutely-calculated and assured returns on each investment with the exception of commitment towards players’ salaries – which remain the most unpredictable investment for the team owners.InsideSports’ IPL Moneyball is one logical, software-driven too to provide the most authentic analysis to correlate an IPL player’s salary and performance. Insidesport.co, ahead of the all-important second eliminator for IPL 2018, takes a look at what kind of returns have the two teams’ got from the investment of their top players.SRH: INTELLIGENT INVESTMENT – SUPERB SHOWSunRisers Hyderabad, the leaders at the IPL 2018 league stage, have not just excelled on the field, their investment on the players will also win the trophy for Returns on Investment if there were one.Skipper Kane Williamson is the clear leader not just for being the top run-getter of the season, but also for his ₹ 3 crore deal being the wisest investment by a franchisee. Each of the top five SRH performers have assured to be a profitable acquisition for the team. Williamson’s 685 runs for ₹ 3 crore; Shikhar Dhawan’s 437 in lieu of a ₹5.2 crore salary, Shakib al-Hassan’s all-round show (13 wickets and 188 runs) for a pay package of ₹2 crore, one of the highest paid SRH players Rashid Khan (₹9 core) running home with 18 wickets and young Siddarth Kaul’s 19 wickets and ₹3.8 crore salary are all value for money deals for Sunrisers Hyderabad.If SunRisers Hyderabad is a story of consistent performance, occasionally abbreviated by the law of averages, Kolkata Knight Riders big guns have ridden a strong resurgence to overcome a slow start off the blocks to be among the top three.Like SRH, KKR are led from the front by skipper Dinesh Karthik, who for his ₹7.4 crore deal has been as impressive in front and behind the wickets as he has been as the wise leader. The team’s most expensive acquisition Sunil Narine (₹12.5 crores) has also been the best bowler for the side and an outstanding all-rounder. The Knight Riders table in the IPL auction hall was among the franchisees to make lavish investments. Performances of also the likes of Andre Russell (₹8.5 crore) and Kuldeep Yadav (₹5.8 crore) have establishes that KKR big investments have also turned out to be the wise investments for money matters.The reliance yet again by on these consistent players. SunRisers had lost their most precious and expensive player captain David Warner (₹ 12.5 crore) before the start of the league. While the impact on franchisees finances was a positive one instantly, the team did not let the absence of the legend leave a negative influence on performance in the middle.Momentum for now is on the Knight Riders side for having won their last four games on the trot, including the five-wicket win over the SunRisers in their own den at Hyderabad on Saturday, May 19. Friday, today, is the next big date for the two sides. The one who wins will earn the chance take a shot at the title this Sunday.

There’s a handful of what I believe are really high-quality stocks in the FTSE 100. Unfortunately, it seems as if the rest of the market loves these businesses as well. Most are trading at premium valuations, which I’m not willing to pay.That’s why I’m waiting for a stock market crash to snap up these market-leaders. And there’s one FTSE 100 stock, in particular, I want to acquire more than any other.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…A FTSE 100 stock for the long term Here at the Motley Fool, we’re long-term investors. That means we look past short-term headwinds and try to focus on a business’s underlying strengths. This is especially important in times of economic uncertainty as it’s easy to be distracted by doom-monger headlines. Companies with substantial competitive advantages tend to achieve the best performances over the long term. They’re also less likely to be disrupted by short-term economic headwinds.These advantages can come in many forms. A strong brand, sector-leading customer service, high-quality product or just size are all versions of competitive advantages. Rightmove (LSE: RMV) has several of these. It’s the most prominent property portal in the country, its brand is well-known, and its product has revolutionised the UK property market. Thanks to these advantages, the group’s website is one of the most valuable web properties in the UK. That means customers are willing to pay a premium to list on its site. And because the website requires relatively little in the way of capital spending to maintain, the firm’s profit margins are high. Rightmove has reported an average operating profit margin of around 70% for the past five years. According to my research, there are only a handful of other London-listed companies achieving the same level of profitability.Growth trajectoryOver the past six years, the FTSE 100 stock’s competitive advantages have helped it take over the online real estate market. Earnings per share have grown at a compound annual rate of 15% since 2014. I think this trend is highly likely to continue. Rightmove’s size and scale have proved difficult for competitors to conquer. Unless the company makes a significant mistake, I reckon these advantages will remain, allowing a business to maintain its hefty profit margins.Further, because customers don’t have many other options, Rightmove can increase its prices year after year without worrying about a significant exodus. Once again, I think this advantage puts the FTSE 100 stock in an elite club. Those are the reasons why I want to buy shares in Rightmove. Unfortunately, the stock is currently trading at an eye-watering price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of 54. Thanks to its advantages, I think the company deserves a premium valuation, but that P/E multiple is far too high.As such, I believe the next stock market crash could offer an excellent opportunity for me to snap up shares in this leading FTSE 100 stock at a discount price. It might be a while before this opportunity arrives but, in my opinion, Rightmove isn’t going anywhere in the meantime. center_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Celebran 30 años de ‘dulce predicación’ en la Iglesia Episcopal

first_img Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Featured Events Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET El Obispo primado Michael Curry es el presidente honorario de la Fundación Episcopal para la Predicación, que A. Gary Shilling iniciara hace 30 años para perfeccionar la predicación en la Iglesia Episcopal. Foto de  Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Richmond, Virginia] A. Gary Shilling gusta de hacer el chiste de que él comenzó la Fundación Episcopal para la Predicación después que se dio cuenta de que estaba leyendo las últimas páginas del Libro de oración Común o incluso balanceando su chequera durante un sermón.Eso fue hace más de 30 años y Shilling decidió hacer algo al respecto.Habiendo ya fundado una firma asesora de inversiones en Springfield, Nueva Jersey, Shilling creó, y en gran medida financió, la Fundación Episcopal para la Predicación. Para este año, cerca de 5.000 predicadores de la Iglesia Episcopal habrán sido potenciados por el trabajo de la Fundación. El 30 de mayo, los colaboradores de la Fundación se reunieron para celebrar ese logro y a su promotor.El obispo primado Michael Curry predicó durante la eucaristía en la iglesia episcopal de Todos los Santos [All Saints Episcopal Church] en un suburbio de Richmond, Virginia. Posteriormente, se sumó a los tributos durante una cena en el Centro de Conferencias Roslyn de la vecina Diócesis de Virginia. La celebración tuvo lugar durante el Programa de Excelencia en la Predicación, que la Fundación presentó del 28 de mayo al 2 de junio para seminaristas y recién graduados, los cuales asistieron al evento.Desde el comienzo, dijo Shilling, él estaba convencido de que una predicación excelente es clave para captar [la atención] de todos los episcopales, especialmente de aquellos para los que un sermón durante el culto es su principal punto de contacto con la Iglesia. Los buenos predicadores, razonó él, resultaban recompensados, de manera que él decidió conectarse con predicadores que estuvieran  en los comienzos de su vida en el púlpito. La misión de la Fundación se basa en la premisa de que una predicación profunda y dinámica atraerá a los feligreses y hará crecer la Iglesia Episcopal.Durante su sermón y en sus palabras en la cena, Curry, alumno del Programa de Excelencia en la Predicación de 1991, encomió la iniciativa de Shilling. Arguyó también que la predicación en el mundo de hoy no se limitaba [a procurar] el crecimiento de una Iglesia, sino  más bien a fomentar la esperanza en un mundo desgastado y perturbado que tiene una idea prejuiciada del cristianismo.Los cristianos con frecuencia se asemejan a cualquier cosa menos al Jesús compasivo, vivificador y liberador de la Biblia, afirmó.“Necesitamos algunos testigos para un modo de ser cristiano que realmente se parezca algo a Jesús de Nazaret”, dijo Curry. “El Jesús de Nazaret que dijo, ‘el espíritu del Señor está sobre mí porque me ha ungido para predicar buenas nuevas a los pobres’” y quien predicó la compasión y el amor, incluso para sus enemigos.“Mis hermanos y hermanas que predicarán la palabra, los necesitamos a ustedes en su predicación para que nos señalen a ese Jesús y luego para que todos nosotros salgamos al mundo como el Movimiento de Jesús para ser testigos de él”, recalcó Curry provocando el aplauso de la congregación. “Esa es una Iglesia que importa y esa es una Iglesia que tendrá futuro”.El fundador de la Fundación Episcopal para la Predicación, A. Gary Shilling, puede ser economista, analista de finanzas y comentaristas, pero su vocación es la de apicultor. Sus abejas produjeron la cera que se uso para fabricar las velas que iluminaron las mesas de la cena durante la celebración del 30º. aniversario de la Fundación el 30 de mayo. Cada asistente a la cena recibió un frasco de miel de sus colmenas en conmemoración de “30 años de dulce predicación”. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENSMás tarde en la cena, el Obispo Primado se dirigió directamente a Shilling, calificándolo de “sabio,  amable y valeroso”.Curry, que recientemente aceptó servir de presidente honorario de la Fundación, comparó a Shilling con María. Shilling dijo sí “al llamado del Espíritu Santo”, recalcó.“Sí, para que levantáramos una nueva generación de predicadores; sí, para que fueran adiestrados y equipados”, prosiguió el Obispo Primado, añadiendo que el “sí” de Shilling también ha apoyado a los seminarios en su empeño de capacitar a predicadores y respaldar a recién graduados que son enviados a predicar buenas nuevas.El Muy Rdo. Andrew McGowan, decano y presidente de la Escuela de Teología de Berkeley, elogió a Shilling por epitomizar el ministerio del laicado, tal como se describe en las últimas páginas del Libro de Oración Común (específicamente en la página 747). El catecismo dice  que ese ministerio consiste en “representar a Cristo y su Iglesia; dar testimonio de él dondequiera que estén [y], según los dones recibidos, efectuar la obra reconciliadora de Cristo en el mundo; y ocupar su lugar en la vida, el culto y el gobierno de la Iglesia”.Shilling, que asiste a la iglesia de Cristo [Christ Church] en Short Hills, Nueva Jersey, también ha servido en el ámbito local, diocesano y denominacional.Economista de profesión y vocación, Shilling le dijo a los presentes en la cena que el éxito de la fundación descansaba en “una tendencia al alza” en el interés en la predicación y en “muchísima suerte”.Agregó que él decidió desde el comienzo que la organización no debería trabajar con predicadores experimentados que ya estuvieran siendo reconocidos por su trabajo, sino con nuevos predicadores al tiempo que emprendían sus carreras y se desarrollaban en su ministerio.El fundador de la Fundación Episcopal para la Predicación, A. Gary Shilling, a la izquierda, y el obispo de la Diócesis de Virginia, Shannon S. Johnston, escuchan al obispo primado Michael Curry mientras responde a un pregunta durante una conferencia de prensa el 30 de mayo en el Centro de Conferencias Roslyn en un suburbio de Richmond, Virginia. La pequeña conferencia de prensa marcó el comienzo de la celebración del 30º. Aniversario de la Fundación. Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.La predicación, dijo el obispo de Virginia Shannon S. Johnston durante una conferencia de prensa al comienzo de la jornada, la buena predicación es algo “absolutamente esencial” para una comunidad religiosa. “No hay mejor organización para enviar a personas  que quieren estudiar el oficio y el arte y la genuinidad de un buen sermón”, afirmó refiriéndose a la fundación para la predicación y su programa.El eje central de la fundación es su Programa [anual] de Excelencia en la Predicación, el cual le ofrece a seminaristas y recién graduados una experiencia de inmersión en el arte y las prácticas de la predicación. El PEP reúne a seminaristas, profesores de homilética y rectores para una semana de conferencias, cultos, talleres y pequeños grupos en los cuales los estudiantes predican sermones para suscitar debates y reacciones.El programa de matrícula gratuita comenzó en 1988. Más de 1.500 clérigos episcopales han participado en el programa. Los participantes son nominados por los seminarios.Wesley Morris, seminarista de la Diócesis de Carolina del Norte que asiste al Seminario de la Unión en Nueva York, consigue una instantánea con el obispo primado Michael Curry después de la eucaristía del 30 de mayo en la iglesia episcopal de Todos los Santos en un suburbio de Richmond, Virginia, para conmemorar el 30º. aniversario de la Fundación Episcopal para la Predicación. Morris es uno de los 39 seminaristas y recién graduados que asisten al Programa de Excelencia en la Predicación que brinda anualmente la Fundación y que este año fue del 28 de mayo al 2 de junio en el cercano Centro de Conferencias Roslyn. Foto de. Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS.A partir de 2014, gracias a una generosa subvención de la Fundación Robertson, el “PEP II” ha reunido a sacerdotes recién ordenados para una experiencia semejante. La sesión de este año tendrá lugar del 13 al 16 de junio en la Universidad de Drew, en Madison, Nueva Jersey.Desde 2012, la fundación ha ayudado también a miles de presbíteros, diáconos y predicadores laicos a perfeccionar sus destrezas mediante otras conferencias a nivel diocesano, nacional e internacional.Este año, la Fundación Episcopal para la Predicación se asoció con la Fundación John Templeton para integrar estudios sobre el perdón en la práctica de la predicación. El perdón será el punto focal en el Programa de Excelencia en la Predicación y en el PEP II.Everett Worthington, profesor de psicología en la Universidad de la Mancomunidad de Virginia y psicólogo clínico, orientará a los predicadores  a través de su obra sobre el perdón. Él dijo a Episcopal News Service que se propone debatir cómo los predicadores y pastores pueden incorporar la “educación del perdón” en su predicación y en las vidas de sus congregaciones.– La Rda.

On the coast of Izu-Shimoda City is a point where the East India Squadron has landed on November 24, 1852 : Matthew Calbraith Perry was on board its flagship frigate Mississippi. He wrenched the door of national isolation of Japan open. The squadron anchored in the not-so-large Shimoda Bay. Perry and his men came ashore at this spot in close proximity to the mountains, south of a sand dike that stretches north to south to provide protection to fishing boats. The place was once home to a shipyard. Its dock still occupies a corner of its ground. Save this picture!© Hiroyuki HiraiRecommended ProductsArmchairsAndreu WorldElement – SofaWindowsOTTOSTUMM | MOGSWindow Systems – Mogs M65 TBHandlesKarcher DesignPull Handle ES3 G (71)The shipyard was demolished and land filled. Lumps of concrete were thrown into the dock in a somewhat careless manner, shortening the length of the dock by half. The entire site was leveled smoothly. Subsequently, a small storehouse was built there. Such was the history of this site which faces Shimoda Bay on east and is bounded on north and west by the mouths of Shimoda River that flows into the bay. On south is a road that runs along the mountain foot, around the bay and continues south, but there are no villages beyond that. Upon request, we have looked into this site to build a structure and found out that only port-related facilities were permitted to be built here. Save this picture!sectionTherefore we had to design an architecture equipped with functions of a port welfare facility. The only choice of structure for this scale of building is, considering its seaside environment, salt corrosion-proof steel-reinforced concrete. Design consisted of simply casting a variety of things into a space as the spiral mold, that was seemingly prepared early called Beckett project in 2010. (GA house 115, PROJECT 2010) On this real-life site, architecture is not only discernible but also physically perceptible. Also, we were able to take advantage of the Spectacular Ocean and mountain landscapes of this land as rich extensions of the newly created spaces. This architecture will serve the client as a living base in the years to come. For Shimoda City, this point is a new addition within the bay area’s natural and urban environments that is contrastive for both, which is already receiving a rather favorable welcome from the city even prior to its completion.Save this picture!© Hiroyuki HiraiProject gallerySee allShow lessSanta Isabel House / Ricardo Bak GordonSelected ProjectsEB23 Luis António Verney School / LGLS ArchitectsArticles Share CopyHouses•Aoi Ward, Japan Point Perry House / Kei’ichi Irie + Power Unit Studio CopyAbout this officeKei’ichi Irie + Power Unit StudioOfficeFollowProductSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAoi WardHousesJapanPublished on June 12, 2011Cite: “Point Perry House / Kei’ichi Irie + Power Unit Studio” 12 Jun 2011.

Indiana Ethanol Summit A Mixture of Optimism and Frustration

first_img By Gary Truitt – Jul 23, 2013 McKinstray said there may be some consolidation within the ethanol processing industry as a lack of corn from the 2012 crop continues to cut into the margins for processors, “There are some plants that are not going to get enough grain this summer.” He said some of these operations may not have the financial resources to deal with the situation. Cash bases in the Eastern Corn Belt is very high.  Some processors are having to pay  more than $1 over the futures price in order to get grain.   McKinstray says the situation should improve when harvest begins and the new crop becomes available. Longer term he remains optimistic citing the improvements and new technologies ethanol processors are using to make their operations more efficient and more environmentally friendly. The Indiana Ethanol Forum was held at the Andretti Autosports complex to highlight the connection between the racing industry and ethanol.  Corporate sponsors of the event included Dow AgroSciences, Farm Credit Services of Mid-America, and DuPont Pioneer. Other speakers included Jeff Lautt, POET; Herb Ringel, Indiana Corn Growers Association; and Dennis Maple, Indiana Corn Marketing Board. Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Ethanol Summit A Mixture of Optimism and Frustration Facebook Twitter Neil McKinstray, head of the ethanol division of The Andersons,The 4th annual Indiana Ethanol Forum brought together state and national leaders on Tuesday to discuss the current state of the industry and future prospects for corn-based fuel.  Sponsored by Indiana Corn Growers, the Forum presented a picture of an industry with many successes and enormous frustrations.  Currently almost all of the gasoline sold in American contains 10% ethanol. Indiana is one of the top ethanol producing states in the nation with over 3,500 full time jobs in the state tied to the ethanol industry. There are 14 flex fuel pumps locations around the state, and Indiana’s ethanol plants provide a market for Hoosier corn. But major challenges and political obstacles are slowing progress in the renewable fuels sector.  Neil McKinstray, head of the ethanol division of The Andersons,  told the forum that oil  companies continue to try and defeat the Renewable Fuel Standard (FRS). He told HAT that the lack of a Farm Bill is also adding to an uncertain future for ethanol, “The lack of movement on a Farm Bill and the current situation in Congress are hurting lots of industries including agriculture and ethanol.” SHARE Pam KeckPam Keck, from the National Corn Growers Association, says slow growth in a retail infrastructure for e-85 and mid-level blends like e-20 or e-25 is also making it harder to get more people to use ethanol. But she remains optimistic that in time, ethanol will succeed, “With any new technology, it just takes time. It took a while for the light bulb to catch on; radios just did not appear in everyone’s home after only a few years. I think the same is true tor renewable energy.”  She said one of the keys is getting more flex fuel cars on the road. She added that there are currently 14 million flex fuel vehicles on the road and that, if they all used e-85 every time they filled up, it would increase ethanol demand by 8 billion gallons a year.

Belarusian journalist convicted for announcing demonstration

first_imgNews Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown BelarusEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Judicial harassmentPhotoreportageFreedom of expressionUnited Nations Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Belarusian justice system to quash a journalist’s unprecedented conviction for referring to a future demonstration that did not have the government’s permission.A court in Barysaw (90 km northeast of Minsk) sentenced Anatol Bukas, the editor of the Borisovskiye Novosti local newspaper, to pay a fine of 345 roubles (145 euros) on 1 December for mentioning the unauthorized demonstration.“This dangerous precedent calls into question the right of journalists to cover demonstrations,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “Several UN resolutions in recent years have urged governments to lift undue restrictions on the coverage of peaceful protests. We call on the Belarusian authorities to overturn Anatol Bukas’s conviction on appeal and to bring the law on mass gatherings into compliance with international law.”The court ruled that a 4 October article in Borisovskie Novosti mentioning an opposition demonstration in Minsk on 21 October had violated the law on mass gatherings, which bans giving the date and time of demonstrations if they are not authorized. Bukas, who pleaded not guilty, has said he will appeal.As this law had never previously been applied to a media outlet, Belarusian journalists regard the case as a dangerous precedent.“The aim of the authorities is to force the media to stop writing about demonstrations unauthorized by the government,” Ales Lipay, the editor of the BelaPAN news agency, told RSF.The start of 2017 in Belarus saw large street protests against a new tax on “social parasitism” applicable to anyone working for less than six months a year. The authorities cracked down hard on the demonstrations and, in March alone, 94 journalists were arrested and six were beaten by police while covering the protests. Implementation of the tax has been suspended for the time being but the idea has not been abandoned and it continues to be the subject of occasional protests.Belarus is ranked 153rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.See RSF’s recommendations on the protection of journalists covering demonstrations.

First Presbyterian Church, Altadena: The 12 Days of Christmas’ Origins and Religious Meaning

first_imgCatholics in England during the period 1558 to 1829 were prohibited by law to practice their faith either in public or private. It was illegal to be Catholic until Parliament finally emancipated Catholics in England in 1829.“The Twelve Days of Christmas” was written in England as one of the “catechism songs” to help young Catholics learn the basics of their faith. In short, it was a coded-message, a memory aid. Since the song sounded like rhyming nonsense, young Catholics could sing the song without fear of imprisonment. The authorities would not know that it was a religious song.“The 12 Days of Christmas” is in a sense an allegory. Each of the items in the song represents something significant to the teachings of the Catholic faith. The hidden meaning of each gift was designed to help Catholic children learn their faith. The better acquainted one is with the Bible, the more these interpretations have significance.The song goes, “On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me…”The “true love” mentioned in the song doesn’t refer to an earthly suitor, but it refers to God Himself. The “me” who receives the presents refers to every baptized person. i.e. the Church.1st Day: The partridge in a pear tree is Christ Jesus upon the Cross. In the song, Christ is symbolically presented as a mother partridge because she would feign injury to decoy a predator away from her nestlings. She was even willing to die for them.The tree is the symbol of the fall of the human race through the sin of Adam and Eve. It is also the symbol of its redemption by Jesus Christ on the tree of the Cross.2nd Day: The “two turtle doves” refers to the Old and New Testaments.3rd Day: The “three French hens” stand for faith, hope and love—the three gifts of the Spirit that abide (1 Corinthians 13).4th Day: The “four calling birds” refers to the four evangelists who wrote the Gospels—Matthew, Mark, Luke and John—which sing the song of salvation through Jesus Christ.5th Day: The “five golden rings” represents the first five books of the Bible, also called the Jewish Torah: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.6th Day: The “six geese a-laying” is the six days of creation.7th Day: The “seven swans a-swimming” refers to the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit: wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety and fear of the Lord.8th Day: The “eight maids a milking ” reminded children of the eight beatitudes listed in the Sermon on the Mount.9th Day: The “nine ladies dancing” were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit found in Galatians 5:22-23: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.10th Day: The “ten lords a-leaping” represents the Ten Commandments11th Day: The “eleven pipers piping” refers to the eleven faithful apostles.12th Day: The ‘twelve drummers drumming” were the twelve points of belief expressed in the Apostles’ Creed: belief in God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, that Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary, made man, crucified, died and arose on the third day, that he sits at the right hand of the father and will come again, the resurrection of the dead and life everlasting.So the next time you hear “the Twelve Days of Christmas” consider how this otherwise non-religious sounding song had its origins in keeping alive the teaching of the Catholic faith.Adapted from email messages, from “How To Decode the Twelve Days of Christmas,”by Hugh D. McKellar, U.S. Catholic, 12/1979, and from “‘12 Days of Christmas’ is no nonsense, but a serious riddle” by David Crowder El Paso Times, 12/19/1993.
