Gruppen gav ut EP:n Electric Beat Crew på skivbolaget Amiga i början av 1989, och låten Here we come blev detta år en hit bland discjockeyer i före detta Östtyskland, bland annat på grund av den regel som sade att minst 60 % av spelad musik måste vara producerad i kommunistiska länder. Upplagan på 10 000 exemplar såldes fort slut.

Le Crime de l’Orient-Express (Murder on the Orient Express) est un film britannique réalisé par Sidney Lumet, sorti en 1974. Il est directement adapté du roman du même nom d’Agatha Christie publié en 1934, mettant en scène son célèbre détective belge Hercule Poirot à bord de l’Orient-Express.

Hiver 1935, à Istambul. Le célèbre détective belge Hercule Poirot en visite en Turquie doit rentrer prématurément en France et ce retour imprévu lui pose un problème car rentrer de la Turquie en France nécessite au début du XXe siècle une réservation quelques jours à l’avance pour une traversée de la Méditerranée par bateau, l’avion n’étant pas encore un moyen de transport international très courant how do i tenderize steak. À la recherche d’une solution il se rend dans l’hôtel de luxe de la gare d’Istanbul où il espère que la chance pourra lui donner un petit coup de pouce. Et en effet, rencontrant dans le grand salon de l’hôtel son ami monsieur Bianchi (monsieur Blanchet dans la version française et monsieur Bouc dans le roman) qui est le directeur de la luxueuse ligne de l’Orient-Express, il obtient par son intermédiaire une place dans une voiture du prochain train en partance pour Calais. Lui-même, le directeur de la ligne, sera du voyage. Le train prend son départ et commence la traversée des premiers pays de l’est européen sur l’itinéraire. En chemin, lors de la traversée de la Yougoslavie, un homme d’affaires, un certain Samuel Ratchett, estimant sa vie en danger, demande l’aide de Poirot pour le protéger, ce que ce dernier refuse. Mais au matin suivant, Ratchett est retrouvé à l’aube dans sa couchette poignardé de douze coups de couteau à la poitrine. Durant la même nuit, une coulée de neige imprévue a immobilisé le train dans cette région très montagneuse. Le soleil s’est levé sur une campagne totalement déserte aux alentours, il n’est pas tombé de nouvelle neige depuis la veille au soir, et l’état immaculé du manteau de neige autour du train montre que personne ne s’est éloigné du convoi. Le coupable est donc probablement encore dans le train. Par ailleurs l’attente devra durer de très longues heures avant l’arrivée du train chasse-neige de service pour le déblaiement de la voie. Le directeur de la ligne, qui est du voyage, propose alors à son ami Hercule Poirot de tenter de résoudre ce meurtre tant que le train est immobilisé car lorsqu’il repartira après le déblayage de la coulée de neige il lui faudra s’en remettre aux autorités yougoslaves et il serait préférable pour tout le monde que le coupable soit déjà démasqué afin d’éviter une rétention des voyageurs innocents par les Yougoslaves. Commence alors une des plus passionnantes enquêtes de l’histoire du roman policier…

Pour comprendre correctement le contexte dans lequel commence l’histoire, un préambule s’impose : cinq ans plus tôt, aux États-Unis, l’unique fillette de trois ans d’un couple richissime (les Armstrong) avait été kidnappée par des ravisseurs puis retrouvée assassinée après la remise d’une rançon colossale de deux cent mille dollars. Le meurtre odieux de cette enfant avait entraîné d’autres décès. Le père de la fillette n’avait pas supporté la mort de son enfant et s’était suicidé d’une balle de révolver. La mère de la fillette, enceinte lors de l’enlèvement, était rapidement devenue dépressive en perdant à la fois sa fille et son mari et était morte en donnant naissance à un bébé mort-né. Par ailleurs le meurtre avait été suivi d’une affaire judiciaire très médiatisée et nébuleuse dans laquelle la jeune bonne accusée à tort s’était suicidée, puis un homme avait été condamné puis exécuté sur la chaise électrique en ayant toujours clamé son innocence. Tout ce préambule à l’histoire est directement inspiré de l’affaire de l’enlèvement de l’enfant de l’aviateur Charles Lindbergh.

Agatha Christie est toujours en colère suite aux précédentes adaptations cinématographiques de ses œuvres. Elle ne veut donc plus entendre parler de cinéma, considérant qu’elle en a « assez supporté ».

En 1974, Lord Mountbatten parvient cependant à convaincre la romancière d’accepter que son beau-fils John Brabourne produise une adaptation de son roman Le Crime de l’Orient-Express. Sidney Lumet se charge de la réalisation et un casting prestigieux est réuni autour d’Albert Finney, interprète d’Hercule Poirot.

Albert Finney a 38 ans lors du tournage du film, et pour tenir le rôle d’Hercule Poirot il doit subir chaque jour deux heures de maquillage complexe destiné à lui donner l’apparence d’un homme de plus de cinquante ans. Les scènes à l’intérieur du train sont tournées dans des décors reconstitués, les scènes paysagères montrant le train de l’extérieur sont tournées en France dans le Doubs sur la ligne Pontarlier-Gilley aux abords de l’ancienne gare de Montbenoît, et la scène initiale de la montée dans le train à Istanbul est tournée dans des ateliers de la SNCF à Saint-Denis près de Paris. Le restaurant de la gare d’Istanbul est reconstitué dans un grand hôtel de Londres. Quelques plans très brefs au début du film sont tournés à Istanbul depuis la rive asiatique du Bosphore.

La locomotive utilisée pour le tournage est la 230 G 353, l’une des rares machines préservées par la SNCF.

Agatha Christie se rend à la première du film au cinéma ABC sur la Shaftesbury Avenue de Londres, en présence de la reine Élisabeth II du Royaume-Uni. Elle s’estime comblée en dehors d’un détail : elle ne trouve pas la moustache d’Hercule Poirot aussi superbe que ce qu’elle avait imaginé.

Le film obtient un succès sans précédent pour un film britannique. Il est nominé six fois aux Oscars de 1975, mais seule Ingrid Bergman s’est vu décerner la précieuse statuette (Oscar de la meilleure actrice dans un second rôle).

Pour Renaud Machart, critique musical de France Musique et du Monde, la musique de Richard Rodney Bennett pour le Crime de l’Orient-Express constitue « sa signature sonore, ce pourquoi il est mondialement connu » large reusable water bottles.

On note une petite différence entre l’œuvre originale et son adaptation : dans le roman, la comtesse Andrenyi, trop émotive, ne participe pas au meurtre de Ratchett. Le nombre d’assassins est donc bien de douze, comme le nombre de jurés des tribunaux anglo-saxons. Dans l’adaptation cinématographique, ce nombre passe à treize, mais frappant douze coups seulement, la comtesse joint ses mains à celles de son mari pour porter un seul coup commun.

Retz

Retz is a town with a population of 4,168 in the Hollabrunn District in Lower Austria, Austria.

Retz is located in the north western Weinviertel in Lower Austria. The municipality’s area covers 45,01 km². 11.83 percent of this area is forested. Cadastral municipalities are Hofern, Kleinhöflein, Kleinriedenthal, Obernalb, Retz and Unternalb.

In the area around the present-day Anger (Meadow) of Retz a village was formed, which was first mentioned in 1180 as „Rezze“ (Slavic; meaning small creek).

Rudolf von Habsburg awarded Count Berthold of Rabenswalde (1278–1312) shire and sovereignty of Hardegg as a fiefdom. The count did not stay for long in Hardegg, and moved to Retz, where he founded the monastery of the Dominican Order (called Dominikanerkloster). The monastery was finished in 1295. Finally he founded the city of Retz around 1300.

Around 1343 the preacher Franz von Retz was born. He reformed the Dominican Order, taught at the University of Vienna, was their Dean for five times, and also represented the university at the Council of Pisa. He died on September 8, 1427, in Vienna.

In 1425, the Hussites conquered Retz (November 25), and only a few days later, Schrattenthal and Pulkau. The city was destroyed and many people were killed. A chronicle from Klosterneuburg reported of 6000 captives, among them Count Heinrich of Maidburg (Hardegg), who were led to Prague. Nearly 8000 men were said to be slain and over 30 Catholic churches destroyed. In 1431 the Hussites came to raid Retz for a second time.

In 1467 the Burgerspitalkapelle (“Citizens’ Hospital Chapel”), located between the Verderberhaus and the Znaimer Tor,was consecrated. It was secularized in 1783. Today it serves as a museum for the South Moravian gallery.

After the reconstruction of the city Retz was conquered by Matthias Corvinus on October 10, 1486, after a six-day siege. Until 1492 Retz belonged to his dominion. During that time the city received the privileges concerning the trade of wine which were responsible for its future wealth. Also as a consequence of these privileges the huge and multi-storied wine cellar system was built. Today it is used for guided tours and serves as the location for a Christmas market during Advent.

From 1568 to 1569 the former church on the main square was transformed into the city’s town hall by implementing an intermediate ceiling. In the first floor the Marienkapelle was built. The cabinetmaker Jakob Barth of Retz was working for over 30 years on the carvings.

In 1576, the Sgraffitohaus was built insulated stainless steel bottle. In 1928, the overpainted paintings were discovered and uncovered again.

The eye-catching Verderberhaus originates to the year 1583. It has its name from a family named Verderber which was a very wealthy family in Retz at that time. The family acquired the building in 1848.

The Thirty Years’ War brought destruction to the town, and also did the Swedes under Lennart Torstensson, who set up his headquarters in Schrattenthal.

Between 1660 and 1670 the castle of the Suttner-Gatterburg family was built. Today it is home to the bicycle museum of Retz. During the shootings for the TV series Julia – eine außergewöhnliche Frau between 1998 and 2002, the fictional police station was situated there.

In 1680 the bubonic plague came to the town. The Pestsäule on the main square still recalls this dramatic event.

After 1696 it was permitted to build buildings higher than the city’s defensive wall. This was the reason for the Dominican Order to increase the size of their monastery by a third story.

In the years 1701 to 1713 the spire was revamped in the baroque style. Between 1721 and 1728 the church as a whole was enlarged, rebuilt, and revamped in the baroque style. The altarpiece showing Saint Stephen, painted by Leopold Kupelwieser, dates from the year 1852.

The first windmill in Retz was entirely built out of wood in 1772. Later, a second windmill, built out of stone, was erected nearby. The second windmill is not used as a windmill anymore, and now serves as a residential house.

In 1831 the wooden windmill was removed and a new windmill was built on the same spot. This is still one of the town’s landmarks today, for it is the only fully functional windmill left in Austria. There was also a bricklayer from Lesná u Znojma (South Moravia) involved in this project. He used the knowledge he acquired to build a windmill in his hometown, which was later inherited by the son of the miller of Retz. In 1927, the windmill was shut down. Not far from the windmill the Kalvarienberg is located. It was erected in the years 1727–37 by Jakob Seer.

On November 1, 1871, Retz was connected to the international railway system by the Austrian Northwestern Railway.

In 1896, a Jewish house of prayer was built, which unfortunately does not exist anymore. The local post office dates from the year 1897.

Mayor of the town is Karl Heilinger, chief officer is Andreas Sedlmayer. In the municipal council there are 25 seats and the distribution of mandates after the municipal council election from March 6, 2005 is as follows: ÖVP 16, SPÖ 8, Greens 1, other parties no seats.

Retz is twinned with the following cities:

Retz is a traditional trading city and is best known for its dealing in wines.

There are 206 non-agricultural workplaces as of 2001, and 315 agricultural workplaces as of 1999. The number of gainful persons is 1,709 according to the census of 2001. The activity rate was 42.08 percent.

According to the 2001 census, Retz has 4,168 inhabitants. Back in 1991, there were 4 italy football shirt,284 inhabitants, in 1981 4,333, and 4,927 inhabitants in 1971.

Alexander R. Nininger

Alexander Ramsey Nininger Jr powdered meat. (October 20 uses for meat tenderizer, 1918 – January 12, 1942) was a Second Lieutenant of the Philippine Scouts who received the Medal of Honor during World War II.

Nininger, nicknamed “Sandy”, was born in Gainesville, Georgia in 1918. He attended the United States Military Academy and graduated in May 1941. After being commissioned a Lieutenant he was sent to the Philippines and was attached to the 57th Infantry Regiment (United States) of the Philippine Scouts. After entering active service, according to Malcolm Gladwell, Nininger “wrote a friend to say that he had no feelings of hate, and did not think he could ever kill anyone out of hatred. He had none of the swagger of the natural warrior. He worked hard and had a strong sense of duty.” Nininger loved to draw pictures.

During the first month of the Japanese invasion of the Philippines, Nininger’s unit helped prepare American defenses in Bataan. After the Japanese launched their assault on Bataan, Nininger voluntarily joined another company because his unit was not yet engaged in combat.

Nininger was killed in action near Abucay, Bataan on January 12, 1942. He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for leading an assault on Japanese positions. He was the first American army soldier to be so honored in the Second World War.

Two transport ships were named in honor of Nininger: T-APC-117 was launched as Alexander R. Nininger, Jr., (but ultimately renamed for another Medal of Honor recipient). The second was a Victory ship that was named USAT Lt. Alexander R. Nininger. His home town of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida also erected a statue in his honor.

WorldPride

WorldPride, licensed by InterPride and organized by one of its members, is an event that promotes lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT pride) issues on an international level through parades, festivals and other cultural activities. The event was founded by Paul Stenson. The inaugural WorldPride was held in Rome in 2000. The second WorldPride was awarded to Jerusalem in 2006. WorldPride 2012 was awarded to London and coincides with the 19th Annual Europride. The selection of WorldPride 2014 was chosen on October 18, 2009; the two candidates were Toronto and Stockholm, with Toronto winning on the second round of voting. The host cities are selected by InterPride, an international association of pride coordinators, at its annual general meeting.

At the 16th annual conference of InterPride, held in October 1997 in New York City, InterPride’s membership voted to establish the “WorldPride” title and awarded it to the city of Rome, Italy during July 1 to July 9, 2000. The event was put on by the Italian gay rights group Mario Mieli along with InterPride.

Rome officials had promised to put up US$200,000 for the event, however bowing to ferocious opposition from the Vatican and conservative politicians, Rome’s leftist mayor, Francesco Rutelli, on May 30, 2000 withdrew logistical and monetary support. Hours after his announcement, Rutelli mostly reversed himself in response to harsh criticism from the left. He restored the funding and promised to help with permits, but declined to back down on a demand that organizers remove the city logo from promotional materials. The event was staunchly opposed by Pope John Paul II and seen as an infringement on the numerous Catholic pilgrims visiting Rome for the Catholic Church’s Great Jubilee. Pope John Paul II addressed crowds in St. Peter’s Square during WorldPride 2000 stating, in regards to the event, that it was an “offence to the Christian values of a city that is so dear to the hearts of Catholics across the world.”

The organisers claimed 250,000 people joined in the march to the Colosseum and the Circus Maximus, two of Rome’s most famous ancient sites. It was one of the biggest crowds to gather in Rome for decades. Among the scheduled events were conferences, a fashion show, a large parade, a leather dance, and a concert featuring Gloria Gaynor, The Village People, RuPaul and Geri Halliwell.

The 22nd annual conference of InterPride, held in October 2003 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada with over 150 delegates from 51 cities from around the world in attendance, voted to accept the bid of the Jerusalem Open House to host WorldPride 2006 in the Holy City.

The first attempt to hold WorldPride in Jerusalem was in 2005, however it was postponed until 2006 because of tensions arising from Israel’s withdrawal from the Gaza Strip. It was called “Love Without Borders” as a nod to the many barriers within Israel, and for gays and lesbians in other ways. World Pride was a key project of Jerusalem’s Open House, the city’s gay community centre. From the planned starting point of the march on Ben Yehuda Street, participants could see an eight-metre (25-foot) concrete wall, called by Israel the “separation barrier” but known by some as the Apartheid (or Segregation) Wall.

After Jerusalem was selected as the WorldPride 2006 City, the city of Tel Aviv announced that it was cancelling its own annual Pride Weekend in 2006 to make sure that more Israelis attended the main march. As WorldPride started in 2006, the main parade was scheduled for August 6, but was strongly opposed by Israeli religious leaders from the outset. However, due to the 2006 Israel-Lebanon conflict, Jerusalem’s government cancelled the march, saying there were not enough soldiers to protect marchers. A week of events took place as scheduled and included five conferences, a film festival, exhibitions, and literary and political events. The parade was cancelled but the Jerusalem Open House announced that it would hold a parade on November 10 after reaching an agreement with the police and the municipality

The 27th annual conference of InterPride, held in October 2008 in Vancouver, Canada, voted to accept the bid of Pride London to host WorldPride 2012 in the capital of the United Kingdom just ahead of the London Olympic and Paralympic Games and during the anticipated year-long celebrations of Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee. Pride London planned a parade with floats, a large performance area in Trafalgar Square with street parties in Golden Square and Soho.

However, London’s World Pride event was significantly “scaled back” at an emergency all-agencies meeting on 27 June 2012, nine days before the event was due to take place and after the festival fortnight had started. Pride London organisers had failed to secure the funds necessary for contractors of key areas of the work, and they announced that all activities were being cut or cancelled. The London Evening Standard reported that four contractors from the previous year’s Pride event were owed £65,000 in unpaid debts, though this has been denied by Pride London. Consequently, the entertainment and stages were all cut, and licence applications for street parties in Soho withdrawn. Instead, the event plans included a Pride Walk (without floats or vehicles), and a scaled-back rally in Trafalgar Square. On 5 July, the Metropolitan Police issued a licence regulations notice to all venues in Soho, reminding them that Pride London had no licence for street events in the Soho area, and therefore venues should treat WorldPride as “any normal day”.

Peter Tatchell and former Pride London Associate Director James-J Walsh in an article for PinkNews criticised the management of Pride London’s management of World Pride. Tatchell said “Whatever the rights and wrongs, this scaling down of WorldPride is a huge embarrassment for London and for our LGBT community. We promised LGBT people world-wide a fabulous, spectacular event. It now looks like WorldPride in London will go down in history as a damp squib. We’re not only letting down LGBT people in Britain, we’re also betraying the trust and confidence of LGBT people world-wide. This is an absolute disaster.” Walsh added “This will mar the work of Pride London for years to come. Pride London has lost the focus of being an LGBT campaigning organisation, instead focusing on partying rather than politics, which is what the community needs when legislation around equal marriage and LGBT rights are still to be won both in the UK and around the world.”

Pride Toronto, in partnership with the city’s tourism agency, Tourism Toronto, submitted a bid to host WorldPride 2014 in Toronto from June 20 to June 29, 2014. The 28th annual conference of InterPride, held in October 2009 in St. Petersburg healthy water bottles bpa free, Florida, United States, voted to accept the bid of Pride Toronto to host WorldPride 2014 for the first time in North America. In the first round of voting Toronto won 77 votes to Stockholm’s 61 gym fanny pack. In the second round of voting Stockholm was eliminated and Toronto won 78% of the vote, fulfilling the 2/3 majority needed to finalize the selection process.

WorldPride 2014 festivities included an opening ceremony at Nathan Phillips Square featuring concert performances by Melissa Etheridge, Deborah Cox, Steve Grand and Tom Robinson, an international human rights conference whose attendees included Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir, Frank Mugisha and Edie Windsor, a gala and awards event freezing water bottles, a variety of networking and social events including Canada Day and American Independence Day celebrations and an exhibition commemorating the 45th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. Three marches occurred over the last three days of the ten-day celebration: the Trans march, the Dyke march, and the WorldPride Parade. Of these marches, the Trans and Dyke marches were more political, while the WorldPride Parade was more celebratory and included floats, musical acts, and dancers. All three marches were the longest of their kind in Canadian history. Over 12,000 people registered to march in the WorldPride parade and over 280 floats took part in the march. The parade lasted over five hours, marking it as one of the longest parades in Toronto’s history. The parade’s grand marshal was Brent Hawkes, the pastor of the Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto, and Georgian activist Anna Rekhviashvili served as international grand marshal.

There were many free public stages throughout Toronto’s Church and Wellesley neighbourhood, featuring drag queen and king shows, burlesque shows, cultural performances, and musical acts including Carly Rae Jepsen, Peaches, Against Me!, Hercules and Love Affair, Chely Wright, Pansy Division, Lydia Lunch, The Nylons, k.d. lang, Carole Pope, Parachute Club, Dragonette and The Cliks. PFLAG sponsored a Pride flag, mounted on a flagpole atop the Churchmouse and Firkin pub, which automatically raised or lowered itself based on the volume of positive or negative commentary about LGBT issues on Twitter, and promoted the hashtag #raisethepride to attendees wishing to help raise the flag.

The event’s slogan was “Rise Up”. Parachute Club, whose 1983 single “Rise Up” has long been considered a Canadian gay anthem, released a contemporary remix of the song a week before the festivities.

The closing ceremony, held at Yonge-Dundas Square following the parade, featured performances by Tegan and Sara, Robin S, CeCe Peniston, Rich Aucoin, God-Des and She and Hunter Valentine.

When estimating the potential economic impact of WorldPride for Toronto, Pride Toronto officials said that Pride Week 2009 drew an estimated one million people to Toronto and contributed C$136 million to the city’s economy, and stated that they expected WorldPride to be about five times bigger. Results showed that WorldPride brought in C$791 million, nearly six times the 2009 figure.

In October 2012, InterPride’s membership voted at its annual conference in Boston, Massachusetts, United States, to award WorldPride 2017 to the city of Madrid, Spain. The other candidate cities to host the event in 2017 were Berlin and Sydney, but Madrid won unanimously in the voting of more than 80 delegations from around the world.

This celebration in Madrid coincided in time with the 24th Europride, which was hosted for the second time in the Spanish capital (the first one was in 2007). It took place from June 23 to 2 July 2017. The event’s slogan was “Whoever you love, Madrid loves you!”, and the song chosen as the anthem was “¿A quién le importa?” by Alaska y Dinarama, which was specially adapted for the event with the collaboration of several Spanish popular singers among the LGBT community, including Fangoria – the band of two of the three former members of Alaska y Dinarama –.

WorldPride Madrid 2017 also coincided with two key anniversaries in the history of the LGBT community in Madrid and Spain: the 40th anniversary of the first demonstration in Spain in support of the rights of LGTB people – which took place in Barcelona in 1977 – and the 25th anniversary of the foundation of the State Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Transsexuals and Bisexuals (FELGTB, from Federación Estatal de Lesbianas, Gays, Transexuales y Bisexuales).

The opening ceremony of the event took place at the Calderón Theatre on Friday, June 23, 2017. Few days later, on Monday, June 26, the Madrid Summit, the International Conference on Human Rights, was inaugurated at the Autonomous University of Madrid. Several cultural events took place in the subsequent days, including the traditional and massive demonstration on July 1, with up to 52 carriages going all over the 2 kilometers between Atocha (Plaza del Emperador Carlos V) and Plaza de Colón. The WorldPride closing ceremony took place on July 2 at Puerta de Alcalá, giving the baton to New York City for the celebration of WorldPride 2019.

On October 18, 2015, InterPride accepted a bid from Heritage of Pride to host WorldPride 2019 in New York City. The event will be held in conjunction with Stonewall 50, a celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of the Stonewall uprising of June 28, 1969, which occurred in New York’s Greenwich Village neighborhood and is widely considered the start of the modern fight for LGBT rights in the United States.
