Orbital Sciences X-34 of collection agencyThe Orbital Sciences X-34 was intended to be a low-cost testbed for demonstrating "key technologies" which could be integrated into the Reusable Launch Vehicle program. It was intended to be an autonomous pilotless craft powered by a 'Fastrac' liquid-propellant rocket engine, capable of reaching Mach 8, and performing 25 test flights per year.The X-34 began as a program for a suborbital reusable-rocket technology demonstrator. In early 2001, the first flight vehicle was near completion, but the program was ended due to budget concerns. Up to this point, the project had encompassed spending of just under $112 million: $85.7M from the original contract with designer Orbital Sciences, $16M from NASA and various government agencies for testing, and an additional $10M for Orbital Sciences to adapt its L-1011 carrier to accommodate the X-34. The program was officially canceled by NASA on March 31, 2001. The unpowered prototype had been used only for towing and captive flight tests when the project was canceled.The two demonstrators remained in storage at Edwards Air Force Base, until they were temporarily moved to Mojave, California in late 2010. This prompted some speculation that they might be restored to flight status. As of April 2020, one of the fuselages was seen lying in parts in a scrapyard in nearby Rosamond, California.------Controversies of collection agencyAlleged abusesThe financial circles and the press have expressed doubts that Bozhkov is manipulating the minority owners by draining Nove Holding by taking out non-public subsidiaries and bonuses for himself. On 5 January 2009, the General Meeting of Holding Roads voted for Bozhkov an additional remuneration of 3.84 million levs.The Financial Supervision Commission does not report any irregularities.Alleged links to the mafiaBozhkov is suspected of having close ties to the SIC group. He is considered a co-owner of the Bull Ins insurance company, although the nominal owners are offshore companies and the connection is unprovable. Bull Ins took over the SIC's "insurance" structures after they did not receive a license in 1998.Bozhkov's name is mentioned in the WikiLeaks correspondence leaked to the US Embassy in Bulgaria. Together with Todor Batkov, Grisha Ganchev and the brothers Krassimir and Nikolay Marinovi, Bozhkov was given as an example "of some of the most famous connections" of Bulgarian business with organized crime.Again, according to information leaked through WikiLeaks, in 2009 the acting US ambassador to Bulgaria John Ordwick in a diplomatic letter identified Bozhkov as "the most infamous gangster" and found that Bozhkov was still active "in money laundering, in privatization fraud, threats, extortion, racketeering and the illegal trade in antiques. '------Arnold Brackman of collection agencyArnold Charles Brackman (March 6, 1923 November 21, 1983) was an American journalist and author.Brackman was born in New York City and received his journalism degree from New York University. He became a correspondent for the news agency United Press International and reported on topics of Asia. He was later employed by The Christian Science Monitor and The New York Times. Brackman lived in Brookfield Center, Connecticut, prior to his death.Brackman established his reputation as a journalist and author from his writings on Asian countries, primarily those in Southeast Asia, and on archaeology. He was a reporter at the Tokyo military tribunals in which Imperial Japanese leaders were tried for crimes committed during World War II. He was quoted calling the 1858 joint presentation of Alfred Russel Wallace and Charles Darwin to the Linnean Society of London "one of the great watersheds in the history of Western civilization".He was married to Agnes Brackman, and the couple had one daughter.In 1969, Brackman published The Communist Collapse in Indonesia, a description of the events leading up to and following the 1965 coup in Indonesia. Throughout the 1970s, he was an adjunct professor of journalism at Western Connecticut State University. There is a scholarship, an award, and a laboratory named in his honor.------Background and facts of collection agencySOCAN is the collective society in Canada representing the administration and collection of royalties for the performance and communication rights of composers, authors and music publishers. Bell Canada, Apple Canada, Rogers Communications, Rogers Wireless Partnership, Shaw Cablesystems G.P., and TELUS Communications Inc. operate online music services that sell downloads of digital files of musical works. These service providers allow consumers to listen to free 3090 second previews for those musical works before making a purchase. These previews constitute an online stream (i.e. a temporary transmission of an excerpt of the musical work). The consumer's computer does not store a permanent copy of the preview, but consumers can listen to the previews as many times as they want, regardless of whether they make a purchase or have registered with the online service provider. SOCAN filed proposed tariffs with the Copyright Board of Canada for the determination of royalties to be paid by users when musical works are communicated to the public over the Internet.In its decision released on October 18, 2007, the Copyright Board agreed that SOCAN is entitled to royalties for the downloading of musical works, but not for previews, since previews constitute fair dealing for the purpose of research under s.29 of the Copyright Act and thus do not amount to copyright infringement. The Federal Court of Appeal upheld the Copyright Board's decision. SOCAN appealed to the Supreme Court of Canada.------Mission of collection agencyOCR is one of the largest federal civil rights agencies in the United States, with a staff of approximately 560 attorneys, investigators, and other staff. The agency can be found in twelve regional offices and in its Washington, D.C. headquarters. The Office for Civil Rights is responsible for ensuring compliance by schools that are public entities or recipients of federal education funds with several federal civil rights laws, including:Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (in 34 C.F.R. 100, 101),Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972 (in 34 C.F.R. 106),Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (in 28 C.F.R. 35),Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (in 34 C.F.R. 104, 105),the Boy Scouts of America Equal Access Act (in 34 C.F.R. 108), andthe Age Discrimination Act of 1975 (in 34 C.F.R. 110).In the case of school bullying school districts may violate these civil rights statutes and the Department of Educations's implementing regulations when peer harassment based on race, color, national origin, sex, or disability is sufficiently serious that it creates a hostile environment and such harassment is encouraged, tolerated, not adequately addressed, or ignored by school employees. Under these federal civil rights laws and regulations, students are protected from harassment by school employees, other students, and third parties.------Land accessibility and ownership of collection agencyA few Batwa own very little agricultural land, and the least productive, ( less than an acre per household for the few who have access), in designated locations in hard-to-reach hilly terrain near the forest. The land was obtained from development agencies such as the Adventist Development and Relief Agency, BMCT (Bwindi Mgahinga Conservation Trust) and AICM (African International Christian Ministry). However, before the declaration of the Echuya as a central government forest reserve, the forest was heavily encroached upon. Up to now, some activities such as wild hunting, collection of honey, mushrooms, water, bamboo for basket making, building poles, making of bee hives and fire wood are being carried out by both Batwa and non-Batwa dominant ethnic communities. Batwa, illegally hunt in the forest due to lack of alternative sources of proteins. The forest is also of cultural importance to the Batwa, who offer religious sacrifices to their gods. Echuya Batwa were never involved nor considered for consultation and compensation when the decision-making process to exclude them from the forest was being taken. As a result, most Batwa became landless with extreme poverty and have been reduced to a life of destitution, living on non-Batwa's land as squatters. Batwa have been forced to resort to begging, providing cheap manual labor, prostitution and stealing for survival. They can be referred to as marginalized minority people, internally displaced persons or environmental refugees------Life and career of collection agencyHorsey was born in Evansville, Indiana and moved to Seattle, Washington at age 3.

It was burnt down by the Goths during an invasion of the region in 378 AD and never restored. In 544-545 AD, it was buried as a result of a natural calamity, possibly a tsunami in the Black Sea.The Balchik temple is the best preserved Hellenistic temple in Bulgaria, with findings being compared in significance to those of the ancient Pompeii complex, because Cybele is the only known Phrygian deity, the patron saint of Ancient Rome, under whose care his centuries-old battle with Carthage was won. Alexander the Great was trying to build a monotheistic cult around Cybele, and theologians believe that it is this pagan goddess who belongs to the image of the Mary, mother of Jesus.It is considered to be one of the most significant anthropological archaeological finds in Bulgaria, comparable to the nearby Varna necropolis where the oldest gold artifact was discovered. The majority of the statues and other artifacts from the temple form part of the collection at the Balchik Museum of History. The temple itself remains inaccessible to visitors as it is located on private property.
