The New Mill and Depot Building of the former Hawthorne Woolen Mill are located in Greenwich, Connecticut, United States. The two structures were built on an existing textile mill complex in the 1870s.
The mill and its depot, in the Gothic Revival and Queen Anne architectural styles respectively, were unusually decorative for functional buildings of that era. Today they are a commercial and retail complex for the Glenville neighborhood of Greenwich. In 1990 they were listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Thirteen years later, when the Glenville Historic District was listed on the Register in 2003, the buildings were a contributing property.

Buildings[edit]
The two structures are located on a 0.8 acres (0.32 ha) lot between Pemberwick Road on the west and the Byram River on the east, where the 30-foot (9.1 m) high dam that powered the mills is still present. To the north is the commercial center of Greenwich’s Glenville neighborhood, with the large former Glenville School, now the Western Greenwich Civic Center, to the east, behind a housing development. On the west side of the street the land rises sharply through wooded bluffs to a residential neighborhood; another one is on the other side of the river, where the land rises more gently to the state line and Rye Brook, New York, a half-mile (1 km) away. To the south Pemberwick continues through woods along the Byram.[2]
The “new” mill building, the larger of the two, sits on the river. It is a three-story, 56-by-156-foot (17 by 48 m) brick building with a two-story 19-by-46-foot (5.8 by 14.0 m) northern wing. Because of a regrading it now appears to be two stories on the east. A central tower rises to a fourth story, its top 55 fe

Shanghai Interbank Offered Rate

The Shanghai Interbank Offered Rate (or Shibor, 上海银行间同业拆放利率) is a daily reference rate based on the interest rates at which banks offer to lend unsecured funds to other banks in the Shanghai wholesale (or “interbank”) money market. There are eight Shibor rates, with maturities ranging from overnight to a year. They are calculated from rates quoted by 18 banks, eliminating the two highest and the two lowest rates, and then averaging the remaining 14.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

Most of the game’s trivia is asked through text questions which are answered in a multiple choice format.

Scene It? Twilight is a trivia game about the movie Twilight, and features no questions about New Moon even though the movie version of the book was released at the same time as the game.[1] The game features a number of different question types, including text-based questions and questions based on movie clips.[2] The game has two game modes: a mode which allows players to compete through four rounds of questions, or a mode which allows the players to answer a set of either 10, 20, or 30 questions to compete for a high score.[2]
The majority of questions in the game focus on small details from the movie.[1] Some questions use clips from the movie and then ask the players a question, while the majority of questions are found in text form, asking the player for specific details such as Edward Cullen’s birth year.[2] Questions are either asked for all participants, or one person is in the “hot seat”, and is allowed the chance to answer the question by themselves before other players are allowed to buzz in and answer.[1]
Reception[edit]
The Wii version of the game received mostly negative reviews from critics, who criticized the game’s lackluster presentation and extreme difficulty; it has received compilations scores of 53.40% and 49% on review aggregate websites GameRankings and Metacritic respectively.[3][4]

History[edit]
Founded in 1907 by the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary as Holy Names College in Spokane, Washington, the institution subsequently changed its name to Fort Wright College. In 1982, Fort Wright College moved its administration to Toppenish and was renamed Heritage College, which operated there and in Omak, while maintaining the Spokane campus. Five years later, the Spokane campus was closed.
A fire which started on July 8, 2012 destroyed the university’s oldest building, Petrie Hall.[2]
Cooperative agreements[edit]
Heritage University offers upper-division classes at three Washington community college campuses to allow students to work toward a four-year degree from Heritage. This cooperative program began in 1993 to allow holders of associate degrees from Big Bend Community College in Moses Lake to apply their credits toward a Heritage bachelor’s degree. Similar cooperative arrangements were established with Columbia Basin Community College in Pasco and Highline Community College in Seattle in 2003 and 2006, respectively.[3]

History[edit]
Royal Bavarian Jagdstaffel 16 was founded from two ad hoc predecessor units — a Bavarian reconnaissance unit, Flieger Abteilung 9, and Kampfeinsitzer-Kommando Ensisheim. These two units were amalgamated on 16 October 1916, while posted in Armee-Abteilung B Sector. Oberleutnant Otto Deßloch commanded this nascent squadron the few days it took to be designated Jagdstaffel 16, on 1 November. By the time it disbanded just two years later, it had established its credentials as a balloon buster squadron, with an even two dozen enemy observation balloons destroyed, as well as 58 victories over enemy aircraft.[1]
