NT  : Quasi menacé

Epinephelus aeneus est une espèce de poissons de la famille des Serranidae. Ce mérou est appelé thiof au Sénégal, mot emprunté au vocabulaire lébou et wolof.

Comme la plupart des espèces de la famille des serranidés, Epinephelus aeneus est une espèce hermaphrodite protérogyne. La période d’inversion sexuelle est assez bien connue. Elle est variable, mais peut-être définie comme se réalisant autour de la taille de 75 cm. Les jeunes individus (moins de 30 cm) se trouvent surtout en zone côtière, notamment en zone estuarienne. Ensuite, ils migrent vers des profondeurs plus importantes (entre 30 et 100 mètres) avec une préférence pour les milieux avec de fortes proportions de zones sableuses.

C’est le poisson le plus renommé au Sénégal pour sa chair ferme et fine.

The Shirani (Pashto: شيراني‎)(Urdu: شيرانی‎)—also called Sherani —are a Pashtun tribe, from the Bettani tribal confederacy, who live in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The Sherani are mostly settled in the Frontier Region Dera Ismail Khan, in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan and in the adjoining Sherani District of Balochistan, Pakistan. Some clans have settled in other surrounding districts of Balochistan; and in the Zabul, Ghazni, and Kandahar provinces of Afghanistan.

According to an elder of Frontier Region Dera Ismail Khan, Syed Amin Amirzai, Sherani was the name of the forefather of the tribe Sherani who had four sons named Abubakar, Hassan, Marhal, and Kaif. The people of clan Oba Khail are descended from Abubakar, clan Hassan Khail from Hassan, clan Marhail from Marhal, and clan Kapip from Kaif. Abubakar and Hassan were born of Sherani’s first wife, while Marhal and Kaif were of his second wife. Abubakar and Hassan were superior to Kaif and Marhal, so the second wife suggested that Sherani marry his serving woman so that son can be equal to Kaif and Marhal and they can have equal rights like Abubakar and Hassan. Sherani married his serving woman, and he named the newborn son Soharh, which in the Pashto language means „son of serving women“. The clan descended from Soharh is the Soharh Khail, and they live in Mughul Kot near the Sherani District in Balochistan.[citation needed]

Traditional knowledge, substantiated by the Gazetteer says that about four hundred years ago Bargha lands were laying waste for fear of Wazir, and the Sherani were in constant & protracted war with Bettanis. The Sherani leader met a Syed boy who had migrated from Pishin District, sought his supernatural help, and the Sheranis were victorious over the Bettanis. The leading Sherani men sent some of their tribe under the boy’s leadership and occupied the deserted lands of Bargha. This boy later married a Sherani woman and became the nucleus and progenitor of the Harifal tribe.

Following occupation of Bargha land, the leading men of Sherani besought him to run his horse from dawn to dusk, and the land that came under the feet of his horse would be his allocation of booty. He ran his horse but before dusk, the horse being overstretched ran down and died, while he was performing his Asar Prayer. The land is now occupied by the Harifal tribe.

All Sheranis, irrespective of their geography, out of courtesy call a Harifal tribe „Neeka“, meaning grandfather. A position of reverence even above father. When Mountstuart Elphinstone visited this region in the early 19th century, he recorded that the Sherani were led by a „Neeka“ who was supported by an annual tax of one lamb and one calf on all those who raised those animals. The Neeka served as a judge and a commander-in-chief and had derived his authority from the belief…that he is under the immediate guidance and protection of Providence“.

The Neeka commands in their wars, and before any expedition, all the troops pass under his turban, which is stretched out for the purpose by the Neeka and a Moollah. This they think secures them from wounds and death; and they tell stories of persons who have lost their lives from neglecting or disdaining this ceremony.

The recognized khan of both the Largha and Bargha Sherani, Khan Mir Ajab Khan, still lives in Largha. Until recently he and his family’s leading members used to make periodic visit to Harifal country to pay homage and seek blessings.

During the 19th century, the tribal group known as the Sherani was recorded as living on the northwest Punjab border in what became the North-West Frontier Province (NWFP) of British India. After annexation by the British, their homeland became a part of the Sherani Agency. The agency occupied an area of 1,500 square miles (3,900 km2), and had a population of 12,371, according to the 1901 census. The Sherani occupied the principal portion of the mountain known as the Takht-e-Sulaiman, and the country southeast from there to the border of Dera Ismail Khan district, close to Balochistan. They were constrained on the north by the Gomal Pass, and beyond that by the Mahsud and Waziri tribes; on the south by the Ustarana and Zimri tribes; and on the west by the Harifal, Kakar, and Mandokhel tribes.

In June 1891, the first Political Agent of Zhob, Captain I. MacIver (in office 22 January 1890 to 14 March 1898), and Sir Henry[clarification needed] visited the area of Takht-e-Sulaiman, and their account, dated 8 August 1894, was published in the The Geographical Journal of that year.

The people of Sherani district put up resistance to the British occupation. Masho Khan Sherani, a folk hero, was the refractive leader of these Sherani warriors. He was killed during fighting against British army in the area of Zhob District called „Silyazi“. After the murder of Masho Khan, his many companions were arrested, including his confidant Adam Khan Harifal.

In the northeast of the Balochistan plateau, the Zhob and Sherani basins form a lobe surrounded on all side by mountains. The Sherani district occupies an area of 1,500 square kilometres (580 sq mi). Qais Abdul Rashid (575 AD – 661 AD), who is believed[citation needed] to be one of the progenitors of the Pashtuns, lived in the Suleiman Mountains. Natives call the place where he is buried Kaseghar“ (the „mountain of Qais“, but „Kase“ because, in the Pashto dialect, there is no „Q“).

Kaseghar was known to the British as Takht-e-Sulaiman, or Throne of Solomon. It marks the eastern boundary of the district, with its highest peak at 3,441 metres (11,289 ft). The general elevation of the district is about 1,500 to 3,000 metres (4,900 to 9,800 ft). Shinghar’s height is 9,273 feet (2,826 m). Torghar is the continuation of southern hills of Suleiman range, the highest peak is Charkundai, 7,517 feet (2,291 m) above sea level.

The lofty ranges west of Takht-e-Sulaiman contain strata of liassic (lower Jurassic), and middle Jurassic (about 146 to 208 million years ago).

Takht-e-Sulaiman shrine is situated on a ledge below the crest on the southernmost bluff of Kaseghar mountain, which is one of the highest points of the Suleiman range, with its sister peaks Shinghar and Kaseghar. Many legends are attached to the shrine. One legend says that Noah’s Ark alighted there after the deluge, while another connects it with King Solomon, whose throne alighted on this peak, which has ever since borne the name of Takht-e-Sulaiman.

Actual length of the gorge is 4 miles.[clarification needed] The enclosing limestone cliffs rise perpendicularly some 15,000 feet (4,600 m). The gorge gradually narrows from 20 yards to a few feet. The British made a road through pass thus connecting Zhob with DIK. It took from 1895 to 1905. Inhabitants of the district generally live in stone-built houses with flat mud roofs, while nomads live in improvised tenements. The area of district is 1,500 square miles (3,900 km2).

Rainfall is about 10 inches (250 mm). Being in the monsoon range, the district receives heavy rainfall from July to September. Rain clouds in the district come from the Gulf of Bengal. The climate is hot and dry in summer. January is the coldest month, with mean maximum & minimum temperature of about 11.5 °C (52.7 °F) and 1.9 °C (35.4 °F) respectively. July is the hottest month, with mean maximum and minimum temperatures of about 36.7 °C (98.1 °F) to 21.8 °C (71.2 °F) respectively.

Geographically the Sheranis are divided into two groups; those residing to the east of the Suleiman range known as the Largha Sheranis fall under the administrative control of DIK, while those residing to the west are called the Bargha Shirans and are under the jurisdiction of Sherani district. This division was effected by the British raj following the Khiderzai Expedition of 1890.

The physical configuration of the country makes the separation so complete that the two tribal divisions act independently of each other. The Bargha lands were formerly held by Hazaras, who deserted the country and migrated to Rozgan in the north.

The modern Sherani district was created in January 2006, following bifurcation of Zhob District. It is bounded by Zhob on the west and north, on the south by Musakhil, on the east the contiguous district is DIK (for 225 kilometres (140 mi)). Dahna Pass links the district with DIK. The district headquarters is under construction at Stano Raaghah. The main language of the district is Pashto.

Besides the populations living in Pakistan and Afghanistan, there is the village Sherani Abad in the Nagaur district of Rajasthan, India. The village has four mohallas: Sufiya, Gausiya, Najmiyan and Noori. There are also small villages—like Barnel, Bheniyad, Danta, Hamidpur and Dungari—with Sherani communities. The renowned Urdu poet Akhtar Sheerani belongs to this community. His father Hafiz Mehmood Khan Sherani was a noted author, and it was in his name that the Rajasthan Urdu Academy award was given. This family now resides primarily in Pakistan, in Lahore, Dera Ismail Khan, and Karachi.

Some Sherani Pathans also lived in Vadnagar, Gujarat, India. They lived in Shemberwada, near Samarkand. Pathan Sherani tribes migrated to India during the time of the Mughal Emperor Humayun who, with the support of Sherani Pathan warriors, was victorious in battle when he came to India for the second time. During the reign of the Mughal King Akbar (son of Humayun), the Sherani Pathans migrated to Kaligam, near Ahemdabad, Gujarat. At that time, the Nawab of Gujarat sent them to fight the Dodia Rajput near the Rajasthan-Gujarat border. The Sherani Pathan defeated the Dodia Rajput in battle, and took over their land; they were called Shembher (or Summer), since they came from Samarkand.

During the era of Amir Amanullah Kahan many Harifal families migrated to Afghanistan against the British Raj and are still settled there in Loghar, Makwar, and Kabul. Prominent amongst them were Nazak, Harifal, Abdulraheem Harifal, Gooloon Harifal, and Majeed Harifal. Dr. Ghouse Khan Sherani, Dewan of Jayachamarajendra Wadiyar, King of Mysore, settled in Tumkur district, Karnataka. He was a prominent leader of Muslims, and also a freedom fighter. Today there is road named after him as „Sherani Road“ in Tumkur. His grandchildren settled in Bangalore City, Karnataka, India.

Stian Ohr

* Senior club appearances and goals counted for the domestic league only.

Stian Ohr (born 4 January 1978) is a Norwegian former footballer who played as a midfielder for several clubs in Tippeligaen. He was also capped once for Norway in 2006. While playing for Molde, Start, Vålerenga, Stabæk and Strømsgodset, he played a total of 239 matches and scored 27 goals in Tippeligaen. He has also spent time on loan with Hødd and ended his career with the First Division side Mjøndalen.

Ohr was born in Bergen, where he lived the first couple of years before he moved to Molde. Having grown up in Molde, Ohr started his career in the local club Molde FK and made his debut in Tippeligaen when he replaced Ole Bjørn Sundgot in the match against Kongsvinger on 17 August 1996. He also won the Norwegian Youth Cup with Molde in 1996 and 1997.

Ohr made his break-through ahead of the 1997 season, at same time as the other local youngsters, Thomas Mork and Anders Hasselgård, and the trio got the nickname kyllingrekka. Ohr didn’t play much for Molde in the 1999 season, and spent most of the season with Hødd which was relegated from the First Division. After the season, Molde decided to terminate Ohr’s contract. He subsequently joined Start in 2000, and was a part of the team that was relegated from Tippeligaen. Ohr scored 14 goals in 53 matches for Start between 2000 and 2001, before he was sold to Vålerenga. In his first season with the club, he became Norwegian Champion after they won the 2002 Norwegian Football Cup. In mid-2003, Ohr transferred to Stabæk and played for the team until they was relegated from Tippeligaen in 2004.

Ohr returned to Molde ahead of the 2005 season, and scored two goals 2–1 win against Odd Grenland in the quarter-final of the 2005 Norwegian Football Cup and was a part of the team that won the where he won the final against Lillestrøm. When the club was relegated from the 2006 Tippeligaen, it became Ohr’s fourth relegated in seven years. Opposed to other local players, Ohr left Molde after the relegation, and joined Strømsgodset ahead of the 2007 season. He played three seasons for the club, until his contract expired in 2009. Between 2010 and 2013 he played for Mjøndalen.

During his youth, Ohr made 15 appearances without scoring a goal for Norwegian youth national team, from under-15 to under-18 level. Ohr was called up for the Norwegian national team for two friendly matches against Canada and the United States in January 2006. He did not appear in the match against Canada, but started in the 5–0 loss against the United States and was taken off at half time. This was his only appearance for the national team.


Påsken er den mest sentrale av de kristne høytidene i kirkeåret, både for den romersk-katolske, den ortodokse og de protestantiske kirkene. Høytiden feires til minne om Jesu Kristi siste nattverd, korsfestelse, lidelse, død og oppstandelse som ifølge evangeliene i Bibelen fant sted under den jødiske påskefeiringen pesach i Jerusalem. Forut for påsken markeres fastetiden og den stille uke, og etter påskesøndag kommer påsketiden, som varer fram til pinse.

Jødene har feiret påske lenger enn kristne. Deres feiring markerer imidlertid israelittenes utvandring fra fangenskapet i Egypt, der Jacob og hans tolv sønner hadde bosatt seg og etterkommerne hadde blitt slaver under faraos styre. Ordet påske kalles pascha på gresk og latin, en forvanskning av navnet på den jødiske høytiden pesach. Ordet betyr ‚å gå forbi‘ og henviser nettopp til fortellingen om Moses som førte jødefolket ut av trelldommen i Egypt.

Kirkemøtet i Nikea i 325 bestemte at påskedag skulle være første søndag etter første fullmåne etter 21. mars. Den norske kirke forholder seg fortsatt til dette. Datoen varierer dermed innenfor perioden 22. mars (1818 og 2285) til 25. april (1943 og 2038). Denne beregningsmåten kalles påskeformelen. Påskedag falt på 5. april i 2015 og faller på 27. mars i 2016, 16. april i 2017 og 1. april i 2018. For andre år, se artikkelen om bevegelige merkedager.

I den kristne allmennkulturen feires julen, markeringen av Jesu fødsel, ofte enda bredere enn den mer religiøst pregede påsken.

Utdypende artikkel: Den stille uken

Opptakten til feiringen av påske begynner med palmesøndag og fortsetter med den stille uke, hvor man feirer skjærtorsdag og langfredag. Disse festene er til minne om Kristi lidelse, og feiringen bærer i de fleste kirker fortsatt preg av fastetidens enkle liturgi. I Den katolske kirke tildekkes statuer og bilder, det ringes ikke med kirkeklokkene, og det er svært lite dekorasjon i kirkene mellom skjærtorsdag og påskeaften.

I den norske kirke feires palmesøndag til minne om Jesu inntog i Jerusalem, da folket hyllet ham med palmegrener. Torsdag i den stille uke kalles skjærtorsdag etter norrønt skira, som betyr «rense». Navnet refererer til at Jesus vasket disiplenes føtter denne dagen. Dessuten feires skjærtorsdag til minne om at Jesus innstiftet nattverden. Den påfølgende dagen, langfredag, er til minne om Jesu korsfestelse.

Det er den stille uke som også kalles påskeuken på folkemunne, men påskeuken er i kristen terminologi og tradisjon den påfølgende uken.

Påskeaften er lørdagen før påskedag. Tradisjonelt er det en dag hvor man ikke feirer noen liturgiske handlinger; i både katolsk og ortodoks tradisjon er den foreskrevet som en aliturgisk dag. Man sier gjerne at påskeaften er den dagen hvor kirken står samlet i sorg ved Kristi grav. Disiplene til Jesus holdt seg denne dagen innendørs, fordi de var redde for å bli arrestert.

Påskevigilien er starten på selve påskefeiringen. Den feires normalt rundt midnatt på påskeaften eller tidligst etter solnedgang. Man bruker i kirkelig tradisjon ofte den gamle definisjonen på et døgn, som man også finner i jødisk liturgi, nemlig fra solnedgang til solnedgang, hvilket vil si at det uansett er på søndagen man begynner feiringen, uavhengig av det verdslige døgnets gang.

I vest er det tradisjon for at liturgien begynner med tenning av påskelyset, som er et symbol på Kristus; han kalte seg «Verdens lys». Liturgien er markant forskjellig fra den som har vært i de foregående dagene; kirkene er pyntet, prestene har gjerne de flotteste messeklærne og korsangen er lovsang i stedet for de mer avdempede salmene som brukes i fasten og den stille uke. Det er også tradisjon for å lese Påskelovsangen, en høytidelig proklamasjon av påskeunderet.

I protestantisk liturgi har man mange steder ikke feiret påskevigilie, men i senere år har vigiliefeiring også blitt mer utbredt i disse kirkesamfunnene. Det vanligste er at feiringen av påskeuken begynner med påskemorgens gudstjeneste og uken frem til 1. søndag etter påske er kirkeårets høydepunkt.

På påskedagen, ofte kalt første påskedag, fortsetter feiringen av Kristi oppstandelse på morgenen, og dagen innleder tradisjonelt en oktav, det vil si en åttedagersperiode der alle dager regnes som festdager på linje med søndager.

Påskedagen er den dagen som forklarer hele kristentroen. Selv disiplene skjønte ikke hele Jesu budskap før på påskedag og dagene etter. Thomas, den av disiplene som tvilte aller mest, trodde ikke på sine venner da de fortalte ham at Jesus var stått opp. Ifølge Bibelen fikk han også møte Jesus, lys levende, i kjøtt og blod, ikke som et spøkelse eller en ånd. De første som fikk se Jesus levende, var kvinnene. De forskjellige evangeliene forteller historien litt ulikt, men de er samstemte i at det var kvinnene som gikk til graven først, og Maria Magdalena møtte Jesus i hagen. De mannlige disiplene fikk møte Jesus senere.

Andre påskedag, som også er helligdag i Norge, er første mandag etter første påskedag.

For mange kristne er påsken en, religiøst sett, viktigere høytid enn jul.

Påske er i utgangspunktet en religiøs høytid som blir markert med en rekke helligdager, religiøse skikker og symboler. I tillegg har feiringen fått flere verdslige innslag og folkelige uttrykk. Det gjelder alt fra gamle tradisjoner som bruken av påskeegg, påskeharer og gule påskekyllinger til nyere tiders påskeferie, påskekrim, påskenøtter og påsketre.

Markeringen av «den stille uke» og helligdagene i påsken, har variert en del i folketradisjonen. Spesielt langfredag har vært preget av alvor, stille kontemplasjon og medfølelse med den lidende Jesus på korset. Tidligere var det ikke vanlig med slitsomt bondegårdsarbeid på langfredag, og i Norge var det lenge strenge lukketidsbestemmelser og forbud mot servering, musikk og dans. Skjærtorsdag, som er fridag i Norge, men ikke for eksempel i Sverige, har for mange nordmenn utviklet seg til en fridag med uteturer, begynnende hagearbeid og kanskje handletur, såkalt harrytur, til svenske kjøpesentre nær norskegrensen, særlig i Strömstad.

Fordi påskehøytiden inneholder flere fridager, særlig i Norge, har påskeferien for mange blitt en tid for familiesamvær og reising. I Norge har utfart til «påskefjellet», det vil si til ski- og hytteferie i det norske høyfjellet, vært utbredt, særlig blant veletablerte grupper av befolkningen med tradisjon for og råd og mulighet til å reise. Den brune hudfargen man får etter lange utedager og soling i tynn høyfjellsluft og snerike omgivelser, kalles gjerne «påskebrun», mens den økte biltrafikken til og fra fjellet først og sist i ferien kalles «påsketrafikk». «Påskeføre» brukes vanligvis om skiføret i påsken, da sneen ofte er gammel, grov og kornete, våt om dagen og skarp om kvelden. De aller fleste feirer imidlertid «hjemmepåske», det vil si at de ikke reiser bort. Ellers blir det flere steder arrangert ulike tilstelninger i påsken, alt fra lokale påskeskirenn til for eksempel The Easter Parade i New York City, et spektakulært, årlig påskeopptog som begynte som en offentlig spasertur på midten av 1800-tallet, men som har røtter til den katolske kirkes tradisjonelle påskeopptog og folkereligiøsitet. I enkelte byer i Norge arrangeres det etter katolsk mønster såkalte korsvandringer til kirken på langfredag.

Påskeformelen er en akseptert metode for å beregne det årlige tidspunktet for påskehøytiden i den gregorianske kalenderen. Påsketiden varer frem til pinse.

Påskedagen kan falle på 35 forskjellige datoer, 22. mars er den tidligste, og 25. april er den seneste datoen. Ikke siden 1818 har påskedagen falt på den tidligst mulige dagen, og den vil ikke gjøre det igjen før i 2285. I 2008 falt imidlertid påskedagen på 23. mars, neste gang det skjer er i 2160. Siste gangen påskedagen var på den senest mulige dagen var i 1943, neste gang det skjer er i 2038.

Datosyklusen gjentas med 5 700 000 års mellomrom.

19. april er den vanligste datoen, i løpet av syklusen faller påskedagen på denne datoen 220 400 ganger, dette tilsvarer 3,9 % av alle gangene.

Lessons to Be Learned

Lessons to Be Learned is the debut album by Australian singer-songwriter Gabriella Cilmi, released in the United Kingdom on 31 March 2008 by Island Records and in Australia on 10 May 2008 by Mushroom Records. Co-written and produced by the team Xenomania, the album takes its title from a line in the song „Sweet About Me“, which became a worldwide hit.

Speaking in July 2008 to Pete Lewis of the magazine Blues & Soul, Cilmi explained the meaning behind the album title:

I guess the title ‚Lessons To Be Learned‘ has always been a line that jumped out from the single ‚Sweet About Me‘. Plus it kinda sums up the whole experience for me, because I’ve been recording this album for three years – I started when I was 13! So, during its making, I had to learn so many things! I moved from Melbourne to London last year. So I had to learn how to communicate with adults and just get my opinion across really fast, as well as learn just basic everyday things like how to catch tubes!

Several different versions of the album have been released with varying tracklists, without there being one edition including all released tracks. On some early printings, „Messy“ was not included. Tracks such as „Round and Round“, „Sorry“ and „Warm This Winter“ were included as bonus tracks on only some editions of the album. A track titled „Sad Sad World“ appeared only on a promotional UK version of the album.

Lessons to Be Learned received generally mixed reviews from critics. Sharon Mawer from Allmusic called it „a good debut album“ and praised Cilmi’s „confidence“ and range of styles, however did not feel the album was original, saying „it had all been heard before, many times in a crowded market“. Mawer also compared her vocals and styles to artists including Anastacia, Joss Stone, Kylie Minogue, and Duffy. Daily Music Guide gave the album a generally mixed-to-negative review, calling „Sweet About Me“ „slightly irritating“ and also noted „if you expected [„Sweet About Me“] to give you a preview of what her debut album might sound like, you would be wrong“. „Save the Lies“ and „Sit In the Blues“ were considered highlights of the album, while „Awkward Game“ and „Einstein“ were criticized for having „too much gloss“.

Mike Joseph from PopMatters considered Cilmi an Amy Winehouse clone, yet without „a fraction of the wit or lived-in soulfulness that Back to Black (or even Winehouse’s debut, Frank) possessed.“ and said he found himself „praying Lessons to Be Learned will end quickly“. He highlighted „Safer“ and „Sit In the Blues“, but compared Cilmi negatively to fellow artists such as Winehouse, Adele and Duffy. Jake C. Taylor of Sputnikmusic gave the album a generally positive review, summarising „With an excellent blend of pop rock, jazz, blues and soul, Lessons to Be Learned is fun, engaging and wonderful listen from an upcoming star, whose vocal techniques are simply wonderful.“ He, however, criticized Cilmi as having little that separates her from her competing peers.

Red Richards

Charles Coleridge „Red“ Richards (October 19, 1912, New York City – March 12, 1998, Scarsdale, New York) was an American jazz pianist.

Richards began playing classical piano at age ten, and concentrated on jazz from age 16 after hearing Fats Waller. His first major professional gig was with Tab Smith at New York’s Savoy Ballroom from 1945 to 1949. following this he played with Bob Wilber (1950–51) and Sidney Bechet (1951). He toured Italy and France in 1953 with Mezz Mezzrow’s band alongside Buck Clayton and Big Chief Moore, also accompanying Frank Sinatra during his time in Italy. He played with Muggsy Spanier on and off from 1953 through the end of the decade, and with Fletcher Henderson in 1957-58. In 1958 he did some time as a solo performer in Columbus, Ohio, then played with Wild Bill Davison in 1958-59 and again in 1962.

In 1960 he formed Saints & Sinners with Vic Dickenson, playing with this ensemble until 1970. He joined Jazz drummer Chuck Slate and his band in 1971 and stayed with him most of the year. He recorded an album with Chuck called „Bix ‚N All That Jazz“ Following this he did work with Eddie Condon (1975–77), then played with his own trio in 1977-78. He played with Panama Francis’s group, the Savoy Sultans, worldwide from 1979 through the 1980s. He recorded with Bill Coleman in 1980. He continued to tour almost up until the time of his death.

Für sein Projekt Peace Counts reisten Journalisten und Fotografen in über dreißig Konfliktregionen und dokumentierten die Arbeit von Friedensmachern, die Konflikte auf friedliche Weise und nachweisbar mit Erfolg lösen. Die Ergebnisse erschienen als Beiträge in europäischen Magazinen, als mehrteilige Hörfunkserie, ferner als Webseite, Buch, CD-Rom für den Schulunterricht und wurden in Konferenzen und einer Foto-Ausstellung verwendet. Von Gleich mitinitiierte multimedia Projekte wie Life Counts, Culture Counts und Peace Counts verfolgen das Konzept des konstruktiven Journalismus. Gleich war einer der ersten, der diesen Begriff in Deutschland verwendete. Für das Konzept wurde er zum Fellow der internationalen Organisation Ashoka ernannt.

Für Verlage betreut Gleich Hefte und Buchkonzepte (GEOspezial Indien, GEOextra Das 21. Jahrhundert, CIPRA: Der Alpenreport 2 und 3). Für Unternehmen entwickelt er Kommunikations-Konzepte, Magazine und Berichte. Zu den Themen Mobilität, Frieden, Entwicklung und Umwelt moderiert Michael Gleich Podiumsdiskussionen und Tagungen. Für das Online-Magazin ChangeX schreibt er Essays über kulturelle Vielfalt.

Mit Tina Gadow gründete er der kongress tanzt – Netzwerk für gute Veranstaltungen

Stuart Highway

The Stuart Highway is one of Australia’s major highways. It runs from Darwin, Northern Territory, in the north, via Tennant Creek and Alice Springs, to Port Augusta, South Australia, in the south – a distance of 2,834 km (1,761 mi). Its northern and southern extremities are segments of Australia’s Highway 1. The principal north-south route through the central interior of mainland Australia, the highway is often referred to simply as „The Track“.

The highway is named after Scottish explorer John McDouall Stuart, who was the first European to cross Australia from south to north. The highway approximates the route Stuart took.

The Northern Territory section of the Stuart Highway starts from the edge of the Darwin Central Business District at Daly Street and continues as a dual-carriageway to the Arnhem Highway in Howard Springs. The highway continues 317 km (197 mi) south passing the Kakadu Highway to the Victoria Highway at Katherine. The route number changes from National 1 to National 87. The highway then continues 673 km (418 mi) south passing the Roper Highway, the Carpentaria Highway and the Buchanan Highway to the Barkly Highway at Tennant Creek. The highway continues 508 km (316 mi) south into Alice Springs passing the Plenty Highway. It passes through the Macdonnell Ranges and finally crosses the South Australia/Northern Territory border south of Kulgera. The highway was only fully sealed in the mid-1980s as part of Australia’s bicentenary roadworks programme. There are no police patrolling the majority of this remote highway and until the end of 2006 there was no speed limit outside towns and other built-up areas on the Northern Territory part. The bulk of the Northern Territory’s population not living in Darwin lies along its track.

At the Northern Territory/South Australia border the route number changes from National 87 to National A 87. The Stuart Highway passes through the Far North region to Port Augusta. The highway passes through the Woomera Prohibited Area where travellers may not leave the road. The highway continues south-east towards Adelaide.

There are petrol and other facilities (meals, toilets, etc.) available at reasonable intervals (usually around 200 km (120 mi)) and more frequent rest stops. Some of the rest stops are located at scenic points with information boards, but others are little more than a picnic table and a rubbish bin in the middle of nowhere.

There was no absolute speed limit in the Northern Territory before 1 January 2007 but maximum speed limits are now posted on some road sections. Drivers, previously, were simply required to drive at a safe speed to suit the conditions. Thus, the Northern Territory section of the Stuart Highway had no speed limits at all. The Northern Territory traffic laws were updated from 1 January 2007 to be similar to the rest of Australia. This included placing a speed limit on all roads (130 km/h or 81 mph on major highways such as the Stuart Highway) and significantly increasing penalties for speeding.

The South Australian Section is signposted as 110 km/h (68 mph) outside built-up regions, between Port Augusta and the Northern Territory border.

In October 2013 the NT Government announced a trial period of reverting to an open speed limit on the 200 km (120 mi) stretch between Alice Springs and Barrow Creek, beginning 1 February 2014. In September 2015, following the conclusion of the trial, a 276 km (171 mi) stretch of the highway had its speed limits permamently derestricted.

In 1994 the first and only Cannonball Run in Australia ran from Darwin to Yulara and back again. Based on similar events in the United States, this event ended in tragedy when an out of control Ferrari F40 crashed into a checkpoint south of Alice Springs, resulting in the death of the two event officials manning the checkpoint as well as the two competitors. The remainder of the race had a 180 km/h (112 mph) speed limit imposed to prevent further accidents.

The Royal Flying Doctor Service uses the highway as an emergency landing strip and sections of the highway are signed to that effect. These sections of highway have been specially selected and prepared for the landing of aircraft which only takes place after the piece of road has been closed by the police.

The highway became the centre of media attention during 2001 after the disappearance and suspected murder of English tourist Peter Falconio while travelling on the road.

Stuart Highway is the highway taken in the World Solar Challenge. The 2013 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge will welcome 42 teams from 24 countries to Australia to take part in what is the world’s largest solar electric vehicle event. The World Solar Challenge starts in Darwin in the Northern Territory and travels the Stuart Highway to Port Augusta and then via Highway 1 to the finish in the City of Adelaide in South Australia – 3000 km. The elite Challenger class is conducted in a single stage from Darwin to Adelaide. Once the teams have left Darwin they must travel as far as they can until 5pm in the afternoon where they make camp in the desert wherever they happen to be. Other classes have different requirements, but all teams must be fully self-sufficient.

During the journey there are 7 mandatory check points where observers are changed and team managers may update themselves with the latest information on the weather and their own position in the field. Here teams may perform the most basic of maintenance only – checking and maintenance of tyre pressure and cleaning of debris from the vehicle.

There are also undisclosed check points which may be imposed by the event officials to ensure regulatory compliance.
