Ann Farnsworth-Alvear (born Huntington, New York) is an Associate Professor of History at the University of Pennsylvania. She authored the book Dulcinea in the Factory: Myths, Morals, Men, and Women in Colombia’s Industrial Experiment that was published by Duke University Press. In the book she identifies two crucial turning points in the history of the factories of Antioquia: the first being the radical unionization of previously unorganized workers, the second being when technological innovations and the rise of newly trained industrial engineers changed the dynamic of worker and management relations.[1] The book won the Bolton-Johnson Prize of the Conference on Latin American History as well as the Allan Sharlin Prize of the Social Science History Association[2]

Ismael Moreno Pino (February 15, 1927 – August 15, 2013) was a Mexican jurist, senior diplomat and author.[1] During a distinguished career spanning forty years, he held several important diplomatic positions. In the Foreign Office, where he began his career in 1952, amongst other positions, he served as Undersecretary for Multilateral Affairs (1964-1965), Assistant Secretary of State for International Organization Affairs (1960-1964), and Chief of Western Hemisphere Affairs (1952-1958).
A member of the Diplomatic Service since 1958, he was appointed to the rank of Ambassador in 1965, representing his country in Chile, West Germany, the Organization of American States (OAS) in Washington D.C.,[2] the United Nations offices in Geneva, Switzerland, Venezuela, Peru, the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Dominican Republic. Prior to retiring in 1992, he served as Head of the Diplomatic Service.
During his career, he played an important role in the disarmament conference which culminated in the signing of the Treaty of Tlatelolco (1969) which prohibited nuclear weapons in Latin America and the Caribbean, serving as a delegate in the OPANAL conferences and collaborating closely with Alfonso Garcia Robles, who in 1982 won the Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts.
In 1982, President José Lopez Portillo named him an Eminent Ambassador (Embajador Eminente), a special honor reserved by law to only ten ambassadors who have made a distinguished contribution to Mexican Foreign Policy. He was also a Professor of International Organizations at the Mexico City College. The author of several treatises on International Relations and International Law, he is nowadays particularly remembered for his authorship of Diplomacy (1998) which has educated generations of diplomats in Latin America.
Born in Mérida, Yucatán in 1927 to financier Ramón Moreno Sánchez and Aida Pino Camára, he obtained a Bachelor of Law Degree (LL.B.) from the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México in 1950, with the thesis “El cuerpo consular mexicano al servici

Cloaking device

Rocket engines

Winged V-2-shaped tail-sitter

The Orbit Jet was a fictional spaceship in the 1954 TV series Rocky Jones, Space Ranger. It strongly resembled a V-2 rocket in overall form, with a very prominent exhaust plume when flying, but had wings in addition to tailfins (even its radio callsign, “XV-2” relates it to that seminal World War II design). There were references in the dialog to the engines being “atomic”. The Orbit Jet had a crew of two (pilot and copilot), but often had three or four others on board depending on the mission and destination. It often flew from Earth to inhabited moons of Jupiter and Saturn, which it seemed to reach in hours or days of time within the story.
Later in the series, another ship, the Silver Moon, was used, but it appeared almost identical to the Orbit Jet.
The Orbit Jet introduced many features that would become standard equipment on later TV and movie spaceships:

An electronic viewscreen (instead of a simple window or porthole)
A fantastically complicated control panel (without an airplane-styled control wheel or stick)
Power doors opening side-to-side as one approaches
Subspace radio (the “Astrophone”) that allowed instantaneous communications over interplanetary distances
Artificial gravity as an explained feature and plot element
A cloaking device that rendered the ship invisible.

Pierre-Denis Martin (1663–1742)

Pierre-Denis Martin (1663 – 1742) was a French painter of historical subjects, battles, hunts, and architectural views, particularly of royal residences, such as the Palace of Versailles and the Château de Compiègne. He was also known as Martin the Younger (le jeune) or Martin des Gobelins (because he was employed at the Gobelins Manufactory).[1]
P.-D. Martin was born in Paris, and according to d’Argenville, he was the cousin of Jean-Baptiste Martin, while Pierre-Jean Mariette says he was J.-B. Martin’s nephew and pupil. He is also said to have been the pupil of Adam François van der Meulen and the Parrocel. He produced a series of paintings at the Château de Choisy, which are now in the Versailles Museum.[1]
The dictionary of artists by Bellier de la Chavignerie and Auvray incorrectly attributes several paintings by Pierre-Denis Martin in the Versailles Museum to Jean-Baptiste Martin.[1][2]
P.-D. Martin died in Paris.
