They are around 25 centimetres (9.8 in) in diameter and normally eat a variety of food from bacteria to mesozooplankton measuring 1 mm in diameter. During an algal bloom in 2009 researchers observed the coral consuming the jellyfish Aurelia aurita. This was the first time such behaviour has been seen in the wild. It is not known how the coral captures jellyfish.[4] This coral is unusual in that it consists of a single polyp up to 25 centimetres (9.8 in) across. It may have caught the jellyfish with its tentacles in the same way as some sea anemones feed on other jellyfish species.[3]
Its polyps have diameters of up to 240 millimetres (9.4 in) and are oval or circular. The species may contain tentacular lobes and it has dense septa. It is blue or brown in colour.[5] Its maximum diameter is around 38 centimetres (15 in).[1]
F. scruposa is found in the eastern and western Indian Ocean, the eastern central, northwestern and western central Pacific Ocean, Japan, the East China Sea, the Red Sea, and eastern Australia.[1] No population figures are available for the species but it is believed to be common and is found at depths between 1 and 27 metres (3 ft 3 in and 88 ft 7 in) on the slopes of reefs. A 1991 study of specimens found that 51% were bleached. It is threatened by bleaching, disease, climate change, fishing, preadators, and human activities. F. scruposa is classified as a least concern species by the IUCN.[1]
It was described by Klunzinger in 1879 as Fungia scruposa.[2] The species is also known by synonym Fungia corona (Döderlein, 1901).[1]

Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross

Werner Thierfelder (24 December 1915 – 18 July 1944) was a German Luftwaffe ace and recipient of the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross during World War II. The Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross was awarded to recognise extreme battlefield bravery or successful military leadership. Werner Thierfelder was killed on 18 July 1944. Unit commander of Erprobungskommando 262, out of Lechfeld, he was lost in crash of a Me 262A-1a under unclear circumstances. Luftwaffe records indicate that he was shot down but U.S. and British records show no comparable engagement. A possible cause is that Thierfelder exceeded the airframe’s limiting Mach number in a dive, perhaps while pursuing an Allied reconnaissance aircraft, leading to an irrecoverable dive.[1] During his career he was credited with 27 aerial victories, 6 on the Western Front and 21 on the Eastern Front.

The area known as Colleparco is one of the most recently developed neighborhoods located in the city of Teramo, central Italy. It is a hilly residential setting resting at an elevation of approximately 300 m.
The first urbanization of this pleasant area very near the Teramo city center dates back to the 1980s when a number of large cooperative apartment buildings were conceptualized, granted the necessary planning permits, and eventually constructed. To this day these large structures dominant the surrounding landscape.
In the 1990s the University of Teramo Schools of Law, Political Science, and Communications also built large classroom and faculty buildings in Colleparco. These building have become a focal point of the university in whose classrooms are heard the most illustrious and learned scholars from not only the Abruzzo Region and Italy but also from other EU countries and foreign lands. Many of the commercial establishments in Colleparco are oriented to providing services to the university and the scholars who work therein.
Thanks in large part to the work of Don Giovanni Bruni, the local priest of San Gabriele dell’Addolorata (Saint Gabriel of the Sorrows) parrish, Colleparco also boasts a church-sponsored conference hall which serves as a meeting center for both religious functions as well as civic events important to the citizens of the neighborhood. Another local church, Sala del Regno serves the members of the Jehovah’s Witnesses

HNoMS Trondheim (pennant number F302) was an Oslo-class frigate of the Royal Norwegian Navy.
Service history[edit]
On 17 March 2006 at 20:10 CET, Trondheim ran aground off Lines island in Sør-Trøndelag. No injuries among the 121-man crew were reported. The incident was reported from the ship itself, and at 20:30 it came loose again. Water flooded two compartments (paint storage and forward pump room) of the ship. The compartments were sealed and three ships were sent to assist the frigate.[1] The frigate was towed to port in Bergen by the coast guard vessel KV Tromsø.[2]
HNoMS Trondheim was used after decommissioning as a target ship. On 5 June 2013, she was severely damaged in a test of the Norwegian-designed Naval Strike Missile system off the coast of the island Andøya.[3]
