Sun Herald

The Sun Herald is a U.S. newspaper based in Biloxi, Mississippi, that serves readers along the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The paper's current headquarters is in the city of Gulfport.[3] It is owned by The McClatchy Company, one of the largest newspaper publishers in the United States.

It was founded in 1884 as The Weekly Herald, based in Biloxi. It expanded its coverage into Gulfport in 1905, and by 1934 had changed its name to The Daily Herald, becoming an evening and Saturday newspaper. The State Record Company bought the paper from its longtime owners, the Wilkins family, in 1968. Around this time, it moved its Saturday edition to morning publication and added a Sunday edition. It added a morning companion paper, the South Mississippi Sun, in 1973. That edition ran until 1985, when the two papers were merged as the Sun Herald, a seven-day all-day paper. The evening edition was dropped in 1986, shortly before State Record merged with Knight Ridder.[3]

The Sun Herald offices and printing presses were squarely hit by Hurricane Katrina in August 2005, but the newspaper never missed an edition. Some of the staff evacuated in advance of the storm to Columbus, Georgia, where then-owner Knight Ridder owned the Ledger-Enquirer. From the Columbus paper's newsroom, The Sun Herald editors and designers, with the help of Knight Ridder journalists from across the country, produced daily editions of The Sun Herald for eleven days, until power could be restored to Biloxi and the newspaper could be produced at its plant there.

The Sun Herald was awarded the 2006 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, along with The Times-Picayune of New Orleans, for coverage of Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. It is the first Pulitzer for the newspaper. The same year, Knight Ridder was purchased by McClatchy.

The actor has appeared in the series prior to taking the regular role of Dan in 2004. Dan is characterised as a "likeable, committed and passionate" man. He grew up in a small rural town and developed a liking for nature. Dan is a school councilor and many of his storylines involve his family unit. Dan's most prominent relationship is shared with Leah Patterson-Baker (Ada Nicodemou). But their relationship is tested following the introduction of Dan's ex-wife Amanda Vale (Holly Brisley). She claims that Dan used to hit her and even attempts to sabotage his wedding. He is the brother of Peter (Nicholas Bishop) a police officer whose occupation endangers Dan's life. He also has to deal with a gambling addiction, which Campbell carried out research to portray.

Campbell decided to leave the show in 2007 and filmed his final scenes on 5 October. The character was killed in an abseiling accident off-screen. Writers deemed the exit the only plausible option due to the popularity of Dan and Leah's relationship.

Sun Coast Media Group newspapers include several "zoned editions" of the Charlotte Sun that cover coastal Charlotte County, inland DeSoto, Hardee and Highlands counties.

World record progression 100 metres freestyle

The first world record in the men's 100 metres freestyle in long course (50 metres) swimming was recognised by the International Swimming Federation (FINA) in 1905. In the short course (25 metres) swimming events the world's governing body recognizes world records since 3 March 1991.

Times have consistently dropped over the years due to better training techniques and new developments in the sport.

In the first four Olympics competitions were not held in pools, but rather in open water (1896– The Mediterranean Sea, 1900– The Seine River, 1904– an artificial lake, 1906– The Mediterranean Sea). The 1904 Olympics freestyle race was the only one ever measured at 100 yards, instead of the usual 100 metres. A 100-metre pool was built for the 1908 Olympics and sat in the centre of the main stadium's track and field oval. The 1912 Olympics, held in the Stockholm harbour, marked the beginning of electronic timing.

Male swimmers wore full body suits up until the 1940s, which caused more drag in the water than their modern swim-wear counterparts. Also, over the years, pool designs have lessened the drag. Some design considerations allow for the reduction of swimming resistance making the pool faster. Namely, proper pool depth, elimination of currents, increased lane width, energy absorbing racing lane lines and gutters, and the use of other innovative hydraulic, acoustic and illumination designs.

In 2008, leading up to the Olympics, Speedo introduced a 50% Polyurethane suit dubbed LZR. Pure polyurethane suits from Arena (X-Glide), Adidas (Hydrofoil) and Italian suit manufacturer, Jaked were thought to be largely responsible for the multiple World Records in 2009 including at the 2009 World Aquatics Championships (dubbed the "Plastic Games"). FINA announced a ban on non-textile suits that took effect on January 2010.The 1924 Summer Olympics were the first to use the standard 50 metre pool with marked lanes. In the freestyle, swimmers originally dived from the pool walls, but diving blocks were eventually incorporated at the 1936 Summer Olympics. The tumble turn ("flip-turn") was developed by the 1950s.
