On 14 August 1944—before her construction began— LST-1118 was reclassified a landing craft repair ship (ARL 28). The ship was named Typhon on 11 September 1944, and her keel was laid down on 17 October 1944 at Seneca, III., by the Chicago Bridge and Iron Co.; sponsored by Mrs. F. E. Kitteredge, the ship was launched on 6 January 1946 and commissioned on 18 January 1946, Lt. Bernard M. Jacobsen, USNR, in command.
Typhon proceeded down the Illinois Waterway and the Mississippi River and reached New Orleans on 20 January. She then moved to Mobile, Ala., to repair her propeller blades which she had damaged soon after leaving Seneca. When again ready for sea, Typhon proceeded, via Panama City, Fla., to Baltimore, Md., where she arrived on 13 February. Three days later she was decommissioned there for completion as a landing craft repair ship. While the conversion was in
progress, the ship's officers and men underwent special training at Camp Bradford, Va., with additional instruction in amphibious warfare at Little Creek, Va.
On 18 June 1946, Typhoon was recommissioned, Lt. Thomas S. Moulton, USNR, in command. Ten days later she got underway for Hampton Roads to conduct her shakedown training in the Norfolk area. After postshakedown inspections, the ship departed Norfolk on 22 July; picked up a load of pontoons at Davisville R.I.; and headed, via the Panama Canal, for the west coast. En route, the repair ship received word that Japan had surrendered, ending the war in the Pacific. Putting into San Diego on 18 August, she unloaded her pontoons and, 10 days later, got underway for the Hawaiian Islands, arriving at Pearl Harbor on 7 September.
After two months there, she headed westward and proceeded, via the Marianas, to Japan. Anchoring off Yokosuka on 16 November, she remained in Japanese waters until early 1946 when she made a brief run back to the Marianas. Returning to Japan with supplies, the repair ship reached Nagasaki on 13 February and remained there until late March, when Typhon headed for China, arriving at Shanghai on 30 March. For almost a year, the ship operated out of Hong Kong and Shanghai, working to support American occupation forces in China.
Late in February 1947, she prepared to return home and arrived at San Diego on 29 March. Decommissioned, Typhon was laid up in reserve in 1947 at San Diego. On 1 July 1960, her name was struck from the Navy list, and the ship was sold on 23 February 1961 to Al Epstein of New Orleans, La.
The TVR Typhon is a sports car produced by the British car manufacturer TVR in their factory in Blackpool between 2000 and 2006. It is the fastest production TVR ever built. (The earlier TVR Cerbera Speed 12 was never put into production.) Only three were ever built. All are currently [ when? ] in England.
In the late 1990s, Peter Wheeler began the project that would fulfil his ambition to see TVRs at Le Mans. An entirely new car was going to be needed. It would need to be built using modern composites,  be more rigid than any previous TVR and designed for 200 mph (322 km/h) on the Mulsanne Straight, to be stable and above all, to win.
And so began what started labelled as the TuscanR (TVR T400R) and finally resulted in the 200 MPH+ Typhon the fastest and most expensive production car in TVR's history.

Although she harbored the extremely contagious bacteria that cause typhoid fever, Mallon never demonstrated any of its symptoms—which include fever, headaches and diarrhea. Immune to the disease herself, Mallon was the first person in the United States identified as an asymptomatic carrier of the pathogen. “She denied ever having been sick with the disease, and it is likely she never knew she had it, suffering only a mild flu-like episode,” writes Judith Walzer Leavitt in her book Typhoid Mary: Captive to the Public’s Health. “The case is without parallel in medical records,” the San Jose Evening News reported in 1907. “Never has there been an instance, as the present, where a woman who never had typhoid fever should prove a veritable germ factory”
Typhon: Facts & Information for Kids
It is very rare for a god to also be a monster, but that’s exactly what Typhon was. He was the most feared monster in all Greek mythology and no other mythical creature, god or monster was as powerful, dangerous, or deadly.
He is known by many names – Typhon, Typhaon, Typheous, Typhos and Typho – but whatever name you use to describe him he was the most horrifying and fearsome beast of all.
There are many descriptions of Typhon, but the following is an overview of his appearance:
He was by far the largest of all mythological creatures. Typhon was a giant who was as tall as the stars. His hands stretched east and west and instead of a human head, he had a hundred dragon heads that erupted from his neck and shoulders.
His bottom half were gigantic viper coils that when stretched out fully could reach the top of his head and made a constant hissing sound.
His entire body was covered in wings and his eyes flashed with fire. Typhon was so powerful that he struck fear even into the Olympian gods.
As well as being a monster, Typhon was a god. He was the last son of Gaia (the Earth) and Tartarus (a violent, bottomless abyss). Both Gaia and Tartarus were deities and considered to be all-powerful gods.
Another version of Typhon’s birth is that he was a child of the goddess Hera, but it is more commonly believed that Hera asked Gaia and Tartarus to produce a god more powerful than Zeus.
Battle with Zeus
Typhon had a number of battles with Zeus in Greek mythology and in one story Typhon began to destroy cities and throwing mountains in a fit of rage. Many of the Olympian gods changed to animal form and hid from Typhon. Only Zeus, Dionysus, and Athena remained.
Athena accused Zeus of being a coward and this led him to attack Typhon before the giant could take over Mount Olympus – the home of the Olympian gods.
Zeus struck Typhon with 100 lightning bolts, trapping the monster. Once he was conquered, Zeus flung Typhon into the pits of Tartarus (where many monsters and foes of the gods were sent). One he was in Tartarus, Zeus put Mount Etna on top of it to stop Typhon from escaping.
Since Typhon is a such a fear-inducing, fire-breathing monster, he is constantly trying to get free and escape the pits of Tartarus beneath Mount Etna. It is believed that volcano eruptions and earthquakes happen every time he tries to move and escape.
Children of Typhon
Typhon is the father to some of the most terrifying monsters in all of Greek mythology, and he had many children with his wife Echidna – a monster who was half woman and half snake.
Together, they raised some of the most well known monsters and mythical creatures in all mythology.
Government and society
Tuvalu is a constitutional monarchy within the Commonwealth, with the British monarch (through a governor-general) as head of state. The government is a parliamentary democracy with a unicameral legislature elected by universal adult suffrage. There are no political parties: the prime minister is chosen by and from the legislature. Tuvalu is a member of the South Pacific Forum.
The government provides universal primary education and, under a joint arrangement with the Church of Tuvalu, secondary education to school certificate level for selected pupils. A few are sent overseas for further education and training. Medical facilities are centralized on Funafuti, but all other islands have clinics with trained medical staff.
Typhon, and Echidna, would leave their cave in Arima, with the pair making their way through ancient Greece, heading towards the home of the gods.
Writers in later antiquity would then link to gods of Mount Olympus and Typhon to Ancient Egypt. These writers would say how the Olympian gods, bar Zeus and Athena, would flee as Typhon advanced.
The gods would transform themselves into various animals Apollo would become a hawk, Hermes an ibis, Hephaestus an ox, Dionysus a goat, and Artemis a cat. On arrival in Egypt the gods of Mount Olympus were worshipped by the ancient Egyptians with Apollo being Horus, Hermes being Thoth, Hephaestus being Ptah, Dionysus being Arsaphes, and Artemis was worshipped as Bastet.
In the Astronomica (Pseudo-Hyginus) a story is also retold about the creation of the Pisces constellation. In this tale Aphrodite and Eros her son, have a surprise encounter with Typhon in Syria, near to the River Euphrates. To escape the monster, mother and son, transform themselves into two fish.

- § Notes are evaluated by a scoring rubric
- § Construction of your SOAP note should be aimed at achieving a score of
“proficient” in each category. Failure to achieve a proficient rating for each of the evaluation criterion, represented in the rubric, by the end of the course will require revision of the final SOAP note submitted until successful. Failure to do so results in failure meet the clinical requirements of the course and failure of the course.
SOAP Note Format
All sections should be addressed as pertinent to the presenting chief complaint. Refer to the rubric and the format below.
CC: chief complaint – What are they being seen for? This is the reason that the patient sought care, stated in their own words, or paraphrased.
HPI: history of present illness – use the “OLDCART” approach for collecting data and documenting findings. [O=onset, L=location, D=duration, C=characteristics, A=associated/aggravating factors, R=relieving Factors, T=treatment, S=summary]
PMH: past medical history – This should include past illness/diagnosis, conditions, traumas, hospitalizations, and surgical history. Include dates if possible.
Allergies: State the offending medication/food and the reactions. Medications: Names, dosages, and routes of administration.
Social history: Related to the problem, educational level/literacy, smoking, alcohol, drugs, HIV risk, sexually active, caffeine, work and other stressors. Cultural and spiritual beliefs that impact health and illness. Financial resources.
Family history: Use terms like maternal, paternal and the diseases and the ages they were deceased or diagnosed if known.
Health Maintenance/Promotion: (Required for annual wellness or physical exams.) Immunizations, exercise, diet, etc. Remember to use the United States Clinical Preventative Services Task Force (USPSTF) guidelines for age appropriate indicators. This should reflect what the patient is presently doing regarding the guidelines.
ROS: review of systems – this is to make sure you have not missed any important symptoms, particularly in areas that you have not already thoroughly explored while discussing the history of present illness. You would also want to include any pertinent negatives or positives that would help with your differential diagnosis. For acute episodic (focused) visits (i.e. sprained ankle, sore throat, etc.) you may be omitting certain areas such as GYN, Rectal, GI/Abd, etc. While the list below is provided for your convenience it is not to be considered all-encompassing and you are expected to include other systems/categories applicable to your patient’s chief complaint.
General: May include if patient has had a fever, chills, fatigue, malaise, etc. Skin:
HEENT: head, eyes, ears, nose and throat
CV: cardiovascular Lungs:
GI: gastrointestinal GU: genito-urinary PV: peripheral vascular MSK: musculoskeletal Neuro: neurological Endo: endocrine Psych:
PE: physical exam – either limited for a focused exam or more extensive for a complete history and physical assessment. This area should confirm your findings related to the diagnosis. For acute episodic (focused) visits (i.e. sprained ankle, sore throat, etc.) you may be omitting certain areas such as GYN, Rectal, Abd, etc. All SOAP notes however should have physical
examination of CV and lungs. While the list below is provided for your convenience it is not to be considered all-encompassing and you are expected to include other systems/assessments applicable to your patient’s chief complaint. Ensure that you include appropriate male and female specific physical assessments when applicable to the encounter. Your physical exam information should be organized using the same body system format as the ROS section. Appropriate medical terminology describing the objective examination is mandatory.
Gen: general statement of appearance, if there is any acute distress. VS: vital signs, height and weight, BMI
HEENT: head, eyes, ears, nose and throat
Diagnostic Tests: This area is for tests that were completed during the patient’s appointment that ruled the differential diagnosis in or out (e.g. – Rapid Strep Test, CXR, etc.).
Diagnosis/Diagnoses: Start with the presenting chief complaint diagnosis first. Number each diagnosis. A statement of current condition of all other chronic illnesses that were addressed during the visit must be included (i.e. HTN-well managed on medication). Remember the S and O must support this diagnosis. Pertinent positives and negatives must be found in the write-up.
These are the interventions that relate to each individual diagnosis. Document individual plans directly after each corresponding assessment (Ex. Assessment- Plan). Address the following aspects (they should be separated out as listed below):
Diagnostics: labs, diagnostics testing – tests that you planned for/ordered during the encounter that you plan to review/evaluate relative to your work up for the patient’s chief complaint.
Therapeutic: changes in meds, skin care, counseling Include full prescribing dosing information, including quantity and number of refills for any new or refilled medications. Pay attention to pediatric dosage.
Reminder: Clinical documentation is confidential.
Educational: information clients need in order to address their health problems. Include follow- up care. Anticipatory guidance and counseling.
Consultation/Collaboration: referrals, or consult while in clinic with another provider. If no referral made was there a possible referral you could make and why? Advance care planning.

Chicago lost a piece of gay history in 2018, when Man's Country, the city's oldest bathhouse, closed its doors after 44 years.
The private club went out with flair, celebrating its last day with a 13-hour party that began on New Year's Eve 2017 and lasted into the next morning, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The Uptown site was a backdrop to some of the biggest achievements and challenges faced by Chicago's LGBTQ community. Author and historian Owen Keehnen said the loss of Man's Country was "a gay version of seeing the house you grew up in torn down. It was everything. A place of sexual liberation, social ease with being gay and community building." The property was to be demolished to make way for condominiums.
Typhoon Nina–Banqiao dam failure
Our editors will review what you’ve submitted and determine whether to revise the article.
Typhoon Nina–Banqiao dam failure, catastrophic dam failure in August 1975 in western Henan province, China, caused by a typhoon (tropical cyclone). The ensuing floods caused more than 150,000 casualties, making it one of the deadliest typhoon disasters in history.
The Banqiao Dam had been built on the Ru River in the early 1950s as part of a flood-prevention and electricity-production program aimed at controlling the Huang He (Yellow River). At a height of 387 feet (118 metres) and with a storage capacity of some 17.4 billion cubic feet (492 million cubic metres), it was designed to withstand a “1,000-year” flood (i.e., a flood level expected once every millennium). However, Typhoon Nina produced floods that were twice the 1,000-year levels as it stalled over Henan in early August. The first day’s total precipitation exceeded 40 inches (1,000 mm), surpassing the area’s total annual precipitation by some one-fifth, and three more days of heavy downpours followed.
The dam began to collapse shortly after 1:00 am on August 8, creating a rush of water up to 33 feet (10 metres) high and 7 miles (11 km) wide in some areas, traveling at about 30 miles (50 km) per hour. The town of Daowencheng, just downstream, was immediately inundated, and all 9,600 citizens were killed. A total of 61 other dams and reservoirs also failed that day as a result of the typhoon and the ensuing floods, including the second largest dam in the flood-prevention system, the Shimantan Dam on the Hong River. The absence of an early-warning system or an evacuation plan exacerbated the disaster, and 26,000 people died in the floods, according to the official death toll. In addition, an estimated 145,000 people died from epidemics (caused by contamination of the water) and from famine some estimates put the total death toll at more than 220,000. The number of people affected by the disaster exceeded 10 million.
In the disaster’s aftermath, Chinese officials undertook a countrywide examination of its reservoirs. A prominent hydrologist, Chen Xing, whose warnings and criticisms had gone unheeded during construction of the Banqiao Dam, was brought back to help in clearing the river channels. Many of the 62 dams destroyed were rebuilt, including Banqiao (completed in 1993) and Shimantan (1996).
Treaty of Versailles
At the Paris Peace Conference in 1919, Allied leaders stated their desire to build a post-war world that would safeguard itself against future conflicts of such devastating scale.
Some hopeful participants had even begun calling World War I “the War to End All Wars.” But the Treaty of Versailles, signed on June 28, 1919, would not achieve that lofty goal.
Saddled with war guilt, heavy reparations and denied entrance into the League of Nations, Germany felt tricked into signing the treaty, having believed any peace would be a “peace without victory,” as put forward by President Wilson in his famous Fourteen Points speech of January 1918.
As the years passed, hatred of the Versailles treaty and its authors settled into a smoldering resentment in Germany that would, two decades later, be counted among the causes of World War II.List of site sources >>>
