Her mother was a primary-school teacher and her father was a naval architect who later taught. The first from her family to go to university,[1] she read English at Oxford where she wrote a thesis on Restoration farce. She worked at Vogue for five years before her success in writing short stories meant she could afford to leave and concentrate full-time on her writing.

Forster Award in 2002 by the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Her most recent story collections are: Constitutional (2005), renamed In the Driver’s Seat for its US publication; In-Flight Entertainment (2010); and Cockfosters (2015). A Bunch of Fives: Selected Stories was published in 2012.
In 1993, she was selected as one of Granta’s top 20 novelists under the age of 40.
In 2009, she donated the short story The Tipping Point to Oxfam’s ‘Ox-Tales’ project, four collections of UK stories written by 38 authors. Her story was published in the ‘Air’ collection.[2] She was a writer-in-residence for the charity First Story.
In 2011 she was awarded a PEN/O.Henry Prize for her story “Diary of an Interesting Year”.
Many of her stories have been broadcast on BBC Radio, including Café Society and Hurrah for the Hols read by Tamsin Greig and abridged and produced by Amber Barnfather.[3]
She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.

The sub-regions (ethnographic/geographic regions) of Reka are Mala (small), Dolna (lower) and Golema (large) or Gorna (Upper Reka).[2] In the west of Reka is the region of Lumë, which extends in both Kosovo and Albania.[3]

The Prost AP01 was the car with which the Prost Formula One team used to compete in the 1998 Formula One season. It was driven by Olivier Panis, who was in his fifth season with the team (including Ligier), and Jarno Trulli, who was in his first full season with the team after deputising for the injured Panis in 1997.
After the good results of the previous season, 1998 was a disaster for Prost. The car’s main weakness was its gearbox: it was unreliable and heavy, which prevented the team from finishing races, upset the balance of the car and meant that the team could not optimise the position of its ballast, as many of its rivals could. The team also scraped into the season by a narrow margin after the chassis failed the mandatory FIA crash test three times.
With these problems allied with the relocation of the team’s factory nearer Paris, the year turned into an exercise in damage limitation. Only one point was scored, at the chaotic 1998 Belgian Grand Prix, giving Prost 9th place in the Constructors’ Championship. Only 8 cars finished the race with the two cars behind Trulli having spent so long in the pits being repaired their drivers were able to get out of the car for some time. In the final 6 laps Trulli lost an entire lap to the front runners with engine problems but still managed to finish.

For the first few races, X-wings were used, but they were banned after the San Marino Grand Prix.

Rockville is the home of the Rockville Hills Regional Park,[6] consisting of 633 acres of grasslands and oak woodlands, with a dense mixed broadleaf forest through which there are many hiking and biking trails.

Robbie Ribspreader is the reclusive b-movie screenwriter of such films as Doomed to Consume, She-Demons of the Black Sun, Tender Flesh For Zombie Goddess, and others. His film Purple Glow (directed by Sv Bell) was screened in 2005 at the Fantasia Festival and took first place in the science-fiction category at the 2005 Wreck-Beach Film Festival. He is known throughout the industry as the fastest screenwriter on the underground scene, and has worked with a variety of filmmakers on many different projects simultaneously.
Ribspreader currently resides at either of his two homes, in Germany and New Orleans.
Biography[edit]
Robbie Ribspreader was born on August 31, 1977 in Detroit City. His father was a one-armed grist mill worker and his mother was what was known as a chuck wagon stewardess. Originally planning to become a lawyer, his plans changed after becoming ensconced in the world of underground cinema. In 1995, at the age of eighteen, he married Rosalita Giacomanco-Vasquez Ortiz, a showgirl at an infamous New Orleans burlesque theater. One year later, she died in what was described in newspapers to be “an industrial accident.” Ribspreader slipped into seclusion for some time afterward, only to return to the movie scene full-force with his screenplay for the film Purple Glow, which went on to win Best Sci-Fi at the 2005 Wreck-Beach Film Festival. To date, he has written some of the most poignant B-movie screenplays, creating a niche for his work and a name throughout the film industry.

The Battle of Punta Quemada, fought sometime in January 1525, was a brief encounter between a band of Spanish conquistadors and the “warlike natives” of Colombia, thought to be a northern tributary tribe to the Andean Kingdom of Quito, subordinate to and as well northern capital of the Inca Empire. Though it marked the end of Francisco Pizarro’s first tentative expedition along the Pacific coast, the battle also represented a crucial step to Spain’s discovery and conquest of the Inca Empire.
For weeks before their landfall at Punta Quemada, Pizarro and his company had, both on sea and on land, steadily crawled southward along the coast of Colombia, enduring both the inhospitality of the terrain and the dangers of tropical tempests. Famine and fatigue alike had ravaged the group, leaving several dead and many on the brink of incapacitation, and only Pizarro’s personal charisma and the iron constitution of the Castilians had kept the crew from collapsing into mutiny and despair.[1]:96-97
Upon reaching Punta Quemada, Pizarro, leading his men inland along unusually agreeable terrain, had discovered and occupied a large native village, the residents of which, to all appearances, had fled in terror at the sight of the Europeans. Delighted at the luck of having established quarters in such a defensible position, and mindful that his battered vessel out on the shore would not carry him much farther, Pizarro elected to send a contingent of men under Lieutenant Montenegro back to Panama for repairs and supplies while his own troops manned the village ramparts and awaited the arrival of Diego de Almagro, whose own expeditionary force, following the path of Pizarro’s, was bound to arrive shortly.[1]:100
But the Quitians were warriors and,contrary to Spanish assessment, had abandoned their settlement only to see their women and children to safety. Armed with bows, sl

Early life[edit]
Posen was born and raised to a Jewish family[2] in New York City, residing in the SoHo neighborhood of lower Manhattan. He is the son of Susan (née Orzack), a corporate lawyer, and Stephen Posen, an artist.[3][4] His interest in fashion design started early, and as a child he would steal yarmulkes from his grandparents’ synagogue to make ball dresses for dolls.[5]
He attended Saint Ann’s School, a private school in Brooklyn and in his sophomore year interned with fashion designer Nicole Miller.[6] As a teen, he also won a Scholastic Art and Writing Award.[7] At age 16 he enrolled in the pre-college program at Parsons The New School for Design.[8] He graduated from Saint Ann’s in 1999. For three years, Posen was mentored by curator Richard Martin at The Costume Institute of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. At age 18, he was accepted into the womenswear degree program at London’s Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design at the University of the Arts London. In 2001, Posen constructed a gown entirely made from thin leather strips and dressmaker hooks and eyes[9] that was displayed by the Victoria and Albert Museum and featured in their “Curvaceous” exhibition.[10]
Career[edit]
In 2000, Posen received a prominent career opportunity after a dress he made for Naomi Campbell changed hands several times among several fashion insiders, including actress Paz de la Huerta.[9] He is famously well-connected and has called Stella Schnabel his muse.[11] Through Interview magazine Editor-in-Chief Ingrid Sischy, Posen met his future publicist and event producer Ed Filipowski of KCD, who offered to represent him for free.[11]
Upon returning to New York in 2001, Posen set up an atelier in his parents’ living room, while they gave him a USD$15 allowance.[11] In October of the same year, he was chosen to present a capsule collection as part of GenArt’s
