Thurman Arnold

Thurman Wesley Arnold (June 2, 1891 – November 7, 1969) was an iconoclastic Washington, D.C. lawyer. He was best known for his trust-busting campaign as Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Antitrust Division in Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Department of Justice from 1938 to 1943. Before coming to Washington in 1938, Arnold was the mayor of Laramie, Wyoming, and then a professor at Yale Law School, where he took part in the legal realism movement, and published two books: The Symbols of Government (1935) and The Folklore of Capitalism (1937). A few years later, he published The Bottlenecks of Business (1940).

Thurman was born in the frontier ranch town of Laramie, Wyoming, which grew to be a small city and location of the University of Wyoming. He was the son of Annie (Brockway) and Constantine Peter Arnold. He began his university studies at Wabash College, but transferred to Princeton, earning his B.A. in 1911. He earned his law degree from Harvard Law School in 1914.

He served in World War I, rising to the rank of lieutenant in the U.S. Army (Field Artillery) and worked briefly in Chicago before returning to Laramie, where he was a member of the Wyoming House of Representatives in 1921 and then mayor from 1923-1924. He developed a reputation as a maverick lawyer.

He was a Lecturer at the University of Wyoming from 1921 to 1926. He was dean of the College of Law at West Virginia University from 1927 to 1930. He was a visiting professor at Yale from 1930 to 1931; he was then a full professor of law there from 1931 to 1938.

He was a special assistant to general counsel of the Agricultural Adjustment Administration in 1933. He was an assistant U.S. Attorney general of U.S. Department of Justice from 1938 to 1943.

As chief competition lawyer for the United States government, Arnold launched numerous studies to support the antitrust efforts in the late 1930s. He targeted the American Medical Association in their anti-competitive efforts against health plans. The Roosevelt administration later de-emphasized antitrust enforcements, for the stated purpose of allowing corporations to concentrate on contributing to victory in World War II.

In 1943, Arnold was appointed as a judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, succeeding Wiley B. Rutledge, who had been promoted to the U.S. Supreme Court. He was “kicked upstairs” by FDR to the Court of Appeals in order to get him out of the Antitrust division. Although it had some responsibility for review of decisions by federal administrative agencies, during Arnold’s tenure the court’s primary role was reviewing decisions of local trial courts involving routine civil and criminal matters arising in Washington, D.C.. Arnold was never happy during his time on the court, resigning after only two years on the bench. As an explanation of his decision, he told observers he “would rather be speaking to damn fools than listening to damn fools.”

He returned to private practice in Washington, DC where, along with Paul A. Porter and Abe Fortas, he cofounded the law firm known today as Arnold & Porter.

Thurman married his lifelong partner Frances Longan Arnold on September 4, 1917. They had two children, Thurman Jr. and George, both of whom enjoyed successful careers in the law.

Nebraskan “Hugh Cox, famous as Thurman Arnold’s chief deputy” and also as an early partner at Root Clark & Bird (later Root, Clark, Buckner & Ballantine; later Dewey Ballantine, later Dewey & LeBouef) was attorney for Donald Hiss (both Cox and Hiss at Covington & Burling, where he was called the “perfect advocate”) during the Hiss-Chambers Case.”

Arnold died on November 7, 1969.

Thurman Arnold Jr. established a law firm in Palm Springs, California in 1953. Thurman Arnold Jr.’s son, Thurman Arnold III, joined his father’s law firm in 1982 and is currently practicing law with an emphasis on Family Law in Palm Springs, California.

George married and raised a family with Ellen Cameron Pearson, daughter of columnist Drew Pearson and granddaughter of Cissy Patterson, owner of the Washington Times-Herald.

Das Naturschutzgebiet Riffelsbachtal liegt im Gemeindegebiet von Monschau, sowie als zweites Naturschutzgebiet in Simmerath. Der Riffelsbach entspringt in ausgedehnten Fichtenforsten am Forsthaus Rothe Stein in einem flachen, sumpfigen Muldentälchen und durchfließt dann meist naturnah mäandrierend ein tief eingeschnittenes Kerbtal bis zur Mündung in die Rur bei Hammer.

Der Oberlauf liegt in einer schmalen Magergrünlandbrache. Alle bachnahen Fichten wurden hier entfernt. Bachbegleitend sind Pfeifengras- und Rasenschmielenbestände mit kleinen, torfmoosreichen Quellsümpfen. An der Einmündung eines Seitenbachs auf der linken Seite stockt ein alter Erlensumpfwald mit Stelzwurzeln. Der Unterlauf ist stark eingetieft mit bis zu drei Meter hohen Steilufern in einem alten Fichtenforst. Unmittelbar an der Mündung befindet sich ein Campingplatz und eine Fischteichanlage.

Geschützt werden sollen die Lebensräume für viele nach der Roten Liste der gefährdeten Pflanzen, Pilze und Tiere in NRW wie Eisvogel, Schwarzspecht, Grauspecht, Wasseramsel, Grasfrosch, Blindschleiche, Gelbe Narzisse, Beinbrech.

Bothy

A bothy is a basic shelter, usually left unlocked and available for anyone to use free of charge. It was also a term for basic accommodation, usually for gardeners or other workers on an estate. Bothies are to be found in remote mountainous areas of Scotland, Northern England, Northern Ireland and Wales. They are particularly common in the Scottish Highlands, but related buildings can be found around the world (for example, in the Nordic countries there are wilderness huts). A bothy was also a semi-legal drinking den in the Isle of Lewis. These, such as Bothan Eòrapaidh, were used until recent years as gathering points for local men and were often situated in an old hut or caravan.

The etymology of the word bothy is uncertain. Suggestions include a relation to both “hut” as in Irish bothán and Scottish Gaelic bothan or bothag; a corruption of the Welsh term bwthyn, also meaning small cottage; and a derivation from Norse būð, cognate with English booth with a diminutive ending.[citation needed]

Most bothies are ruined buildings which have been restored to a basic standard, providing a windproof and watertight shelter. They vary in size from little more than a large box up to two-storey cottages. They usually have designated sleeping areas, which commonly are either an upstairs room or a raised platform, thus allowing one to keep clear of cold air and draughts at floor height. No bedding, mattresses or blankets are provided. Public access to bothies is either on foot, by bicycle or boat.[citation needed]

Most bothies have a fireplace and are near a natural source of water. A spade may be provided to bury excrement.[citation needed]

There are thousands of examples to draw from. A typical Scottish bothy is the Salmon Fisherman’s Bothy, Newtonhill, which is perched above the Burn of Elsick near its mouth at the North Sea. Another Scottish example from the peak of the salmon fishing in the 1890s is the fisherman’s bothy at the mouth of the Burn of Muchalls. A further example is the Lairig Leacach Bothy in Lochaber, not far to the east of Fort William.

The best-known estate bothy is the one in the Royal Gardens at Windsor Castle, which could house about 25 people. It was used by the improver gardeners and disabled ex-servicemen who worked on the estate.[citation needed] Most reasonably-sized estates had a bothy, which housed single men only; in fact, if they got married, they had to give up the accommodation in the bothy.[citation needed] The most famous person to live in a bothy of this type was Percy Thrower when he worked in the Royal gardens.[citation needed] Another example of an estate bothy is the one at Horwood House, which held just five men.[citation needed] There is also one at Attingham Park which is being restored along with the walled gardens.[citation needed]

Because they are freely available to all, the continued existence of bothies relies on users helping look after them. Over the years, the Mountain Bothies Association has developed a Bothy Code that sets out the main points users should respect:

Bothies are usually owned by the landowner of the estate on which they stand, although the actual owner is rarely involved in any way, other than by permitting their continued existence, and by helping with transport of materials. Many are maintained by volunteers from the Mountain Bothies Association (MBA), a charity that looks after 97 bothies in Scotland, the north of England, and Wales.

The location of these bothies can be found on the MBA website, along with information on how people can help.

The song Am Bothan a Bh’Aig Fionnghuala (“Fionghuala’s Bothy”) is a traditional song recorded by the Bothy Band in 1976.

Bothy Culture is the second studio album by Scottish Celtic fusion artist Martyn Bennett. It was released in 1998.[citation needed]

Marion Zimmer Bradley used bothies as a pattern for shelters at Hellers mountains in her Darkover novels.[citation needed]

The narrator’s bothy is the setting for much of the action in the 1996 suspense novel To the Hilt by Dick Francis.[citation needed]

A bothy is featured in the 2013 film Under the Skin.[citation needed]

The Key-Stone of the Bridge, a novel by Craig Meggy, is part homage to Robert Burns, set in Ben Alder Bothy.

Tomaž Humar

Tomaž Humar (Liubliana, Eslovenia 18 de febrero de 1969 – Langtang Lirung c. 10 de noviembre de 2009) fue un montañero esloveno que llegó a completar 1500 importantes ascensiones, entre ellas al Ama Dablam en 1996, la cara sur del Dhaulagiri en 1999, y el espectacular ascenso y rescate en el 2005 a la cara Rupal del Nanga Parbat.

Falleció en 2009 tras sufrir un grave accidente mientras escalaba en solitario el Langtang Lirung, una montaña de 7.227 metros en el Himalaya.​

Consiguió el Piolet d’ Or en 1996 por su nueva ruta Noroeste al Ama Dablam.​ Pero el mayor logro de su carrera fue, el 2 de noviembre de 1999 en la escalada de la pared sur del Dhaulagiri en solitario,​ una ascensión por la que no fue galardonado por el jurado internacional al considerarse increíblemente arriesgada.

En junio de 2003 realizó su primer intento a la increíblemente complicada cara Rupal del Nanga Parbat, alcanzando una altura de 6000 metros. Posteriormente en agosto de 2005, volvió al Nanga Parbat para intentar de nuevo el ascenso a la cara Rupal, sin embargo, durante en ascenso por una nueva ruta, quedó atascado a 7000 metros de altura, y tuvo que ser rescatado por un helicóptero.

En 2007, Humar logró hacer cima en el Annapurna I (8.091 m) por su cara sur.

En 2005 Humar protagonizó una extraordinaria y única operación de salvamento en el Nanga Parbat. El helicóptero de Rashid Ullah Beg le arrancó literalmente de la pared en el rescate a mayor altitud realizado nunca.

En 2009 fue una de las voces que abogaron por el rescate del alpinista aragonés Óscar Pérez.

Paradójicamente el mismo año, el propio Humar sufrió una caída en el Langtang Lirung de la que no pudo ser rescatado con vida.
