Ladies’ Deborah and Child’s Protectory

Ladies’ Deborah and Child’s Protectory was a 19th-century day care center and orphanage located at 204 East Broadway. The institution cared for the children, ages two to six years, of indigent parents who worked during the day. The youths were fed and returned to their parents in the evening.[1] Abandoned children were also taken in. A certificate of incorporation was filed at the clerk’s office of New York County on March 5, 1878.[2]
The facility opened on the morning of March 24, 1878, when fifty-nine small children were received inside. Ladies’ Deborah and Child’s Protectory was established by Mrs. P.J. Joachimsen.[1] She was president of the Hebrew Sheltering Guardian Society of New York City.[3]
In January 1880 the New York City Board of Apportionment distributed $1,289.43 from the excise fund to assist in the support of children at the institution, which was then being called Ladies’ Deborah Nursery and Child’s Protectory.[4]
In March 1883 the Deborah Nursery was located at 95 East Broadway, with a branch at 101 East Broadway and a girls’ branch at 423 East 83rd Street. Elbridge T. Gerry, president of the New York Society of Prevention of Cruelty to Children, listed the buildings of the three sites as worthy of attention by the building department, in regard to repairs.[5]
Child abuse and poor management[edit]

Israel Schwartz, a thirteen-year-old Jewish boy, accused superintendent Herman Engel, of the nursery, of assaulting him with a cane, in May 1893. Engel was held for examination and fined $300. Schwartz complaint was one of many which were reported around this time.[6]
In November 1896 the facility was ordered to promptly make reforms by the New York City Board of Health. At this instance the nursery was afflicted by the prevalence of ophthalmia. In March 1896 eighty cases of the disease were reported among the children at Ladies’ Deborah Nursery and Child’s Protectorate. Infected children were quarantined but twenty-two of them were released back to the main building, despite continuing to suffer from various forms of eye diseases. The institution was then located at Eagle Avenue and 161st Street in Manhattan.[7]
Charity background and aftermath[edit]
The Ladies’ Deborah Relief Association was active at least four years before the opening of the child’s protectory. On July 29, 1874 the organization held a benefit for the sick and poor at Bellevue Garden near 80th Street (Manhattan).[8]
In June 1897 the Eagle Avenue site, o

HMS Surinam

Three ships of the Royal Navy have borne the name HMS Surinam, after an English variation of Suriname:

HMS Surinam was an 18-gun sloop, previously the French Hussard or Hussar.[1] She was captured in 1799, captured by the Dutch in 1803 but recaptured in 1807 and re-added the following year. She may have been briefly, or tentatively renamed Samarang or Sasnarang. She was listed until 1809.
HMS Surinam was a 16-gun sloop, previously the Dutch Pylades.[2] She was seized in May 1804 at the capture of Surinam, was paid off in June, but was listed until 1808.
HMS Surinam was an 18-gun Cruizer-class brig-sloop launched in 1805 and sold in 1825.

Five contestants, Matt (Sean Cw Johnson), Emma (Laura Regan), Charlie (Jennifer Sky), Danny (Stephen O’Reilly) and Rex (Kris Lemche), agree to take part in a reality webcast, where they must spend six months in a house to win $1 million. If anyone leaves, then no one wins the money. Nearing the end of the six months, tension between the contestants rises after Emma finds strange messages she believes are from a man from her past and the food packages arrive containing a letter that claims Danny’s grandfather has died, and a gun with five bullets.
One night, a man named Travis Patterson (Bradley Cooper) arrives, claiming he is lost in the woods and that his GPS has died. Despite claiming to be an internet programmer, he claims to not recognise any of the contestants or ever having heard of the show. Later that night, Travis has sex with Charlie, and then secretly talks directly into a camera, to communicate with whoever is watching them. The next morning, Travis leaves and Da

Alfred Darling

Alfred Darling (1862–1931) was an engineer and a key member of the loose association of early film pioneers dubbed the Brighton School by French film historian Georges Sadoul.
Darling began to manufacture film equipment at his engineering works at 25 Ditchling Rise, Brighton after carrying out repairs for Esmé Collings. His clients included George Albert Smith and James Williamson. In 1897 he took out a patent, jointly with Alfred Wrench, for a camera with a variable shutter and a claw pull-down mechanism. In 1899, on a commission from Charles Urban, he produced the Biokam, a film-making system for amateurs using 17.5mm film. His 35mm film equipment was widely used during the early years of cinema development.
