Jungeldyret Hugo

Jungeldyret Hugo er hovedrollefiguren i den danske barneboka Jungledyret Hugo av Flemming Quist Møller fra 1988 og i flere populære tegnefilmer for barn: spillefilmene Jungeldyret fra 1993 (originaltittel Jungledyret), Jungeldyret Hugo – den store filmhelten fra 1996 (Jungledyret 2 – den store filmhelt) og 3D-animasjonen Jungeldyret Hugo på ville veier fra 2007 (opprinnelig Jungeldyret Hugo – Frekk som alltid, på dansk Jungledyret Hugo: Fræk, flabet og fri) samt en animert TV-serie på 13 episoder med figurene fra kinofilmene. Filmene er samproduksjoner mellom flere land, opprinnelig Norge, Danmark og Sverige, og regissert av blant andre Flemming Quist Møller som også har skrevet manus.

Jungeldyret Hugo er et oransjebrunt fantasidyr som blir framstilt som en mellomting mellom en søt bamse og en vilter ape. Dyret opplever spennende ting og møter skumle dyrefangere og morsomme figurer, for eksempel revevenninnen Rita, på sine eventyr i jungelen og menneskenes verden, blant annet i zoologisk have i København.

Jungeldyret Hugo har trekk som minner om andre oppdiktede fantasidyr fra tropene, deriblant den populære russiske dokkefilmfiguren Tsjeburasjka og André Franquins tegneseriedyr Spiralis.

2091 Sampo

2091 Sampo, provisional designation 1941 HO, is a stony, slowly rotating asteroid from the outer region of the asteroid belt, about 30 kilometers in diameter. It was discovered by Finnish astronomer Yrjö Väisälä at Turku Observatory on 26 April 1941.

The asteroid is a member of the Eos family, a group of asteroids thought to have formed by a single collision that disrupted their 240-kilometer sized parent body some 1.1 billion years ago. It orbits the Sun at a distance of 2.8–3.2 AU once every 5 years and 3 months (1,911 days). Its orbit shows an eccentricity of 0.06 and is tilted by 11 degrees to the plane of the ecliptic. The S-type asteroid has a geometric albedo in the range of 0.12–0.27, according to the surveys carried out by IRAS, Akari, and NEOWISE. It has a long rotation period of 71.3 hours.

It was named after the wonder-object Sampo from Finnish mythology. It is mentioned in the national oral folklore and mythology epic, Kalevala, after which the minor planet 1454 Kalevala is named. Sampo was to produce every kind of fortune. When Kalevala and Pohjola (also see 3606 Pohjola) were fighting for its possession it broke into pieces.

Bennigan’s

Bennigan’s is an Irish pub-themed casual dining restaurant chain founded in 1976 in Atlanta by restaurateur Norman E. Brinker as one of America’s original casual dining concepts. The chain operated under the restaurant division of Pillsbury for most of its history, until Pillsbury was bought out by British liquor conglomerate Grand Metropolitan Known. Due to laws preventing liquor manufacturers from operating liquor sellers, the chain was sold to Texas-based Metromedia restaurants, until the company filed for bankruptcy in 2008. The chain then went through a series of restructuring and ownership changes until it was purchased by Legendary Restaurant Brands, LLC in 2015. It is now operating out of Dallas, Texas.

Bennigan’s was established in 1976 in Atlanta, Georgia, as part of the Pillsbury Corporation. The first significant Bennigan’s location was opened in Tysons Corner, Virginia, the following year. The concept was the brainchild of company vice president and Steak and Ale founder Norman E. Brinker. By the early 1980s Bennigan’s had become one of the best known of the new style mid-range casual dining franchised „fern bar“ eating and drinking establishments in the United States. In 1983, Brinker led an exodus of senior management from the S&A and Bennigan’s division, purchasing a small regional restaurant concept that focused on gourmet hamburgers, Chili’s. Bennigan’s continued to grow across the United States, as well as opening locations in fourteen countries.

When Pillsbury was acquired by Grand Metropolitan in 1989 (Grand Met later merged with Guinness in 1997 to become Diageo), the company was spun off. As a major liquor distributor selling such brands as Bombay gin, J&B and other spirits, Grand Metropolitan was bound by „Tied house“ laws that prohibited liquor distributors from owning liquor retailers. S&A management, underwritten by Metromedia, led the leveraged buyout of S&A in 1991.

Failure of Bennigan’s executives to update and evolve the restaurant concept over twenty years led to significant sales and customer visit declines. Bennigan’s consistently lagged behind its contemporaries, Chili’s and T.G.I. Friday’s. John Owens, a Morningstar analyst, described Bennigan’s as one of the „weakest of the major players.“ Rapid expansion among many chains led to a lack of distinction among customers and a drive to cut prices. Bob Goldin, an executive vice president of the restaurant industry consulting group Technomic, said that many chains like Bennigan’s featured „the same kind of menu, décor, appeal.“ This translated into a lack of brand loyalty.

In May 2006 Bennigans closed most of its New York and New England locations.

In July 2008, all of Bennigan’s 150 corporate locations across the US were closed due to parent company Metromedia Restaurant Group of Plano, Texas filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection; initially the firm’s 138 franchisee-owned remained open, but many later closed in the months and years after the bankruptcy filing. Several international locations, however, remained open. In South Korea, for instance, over 30 locations still operated as usual.

The brand was restructured in 2010 as a result of ownership changes. As of January 2015, there are 23 Bennigan’s locations in 11 U.S. states, and 39 additional locations in eight other countries. The operator of Bennigan’s in South Korea has announced that all locations in the country will be closed by January 31, 2016.

In October 2008, Atalaya Capital Management announced that it would buy the assets of both the Bennigan’s and Steak and Ale brands. The assets include the Bennigan’s Franchising Co., which owned the rights to franchise the Bennigan’s brand and was instrumental in keeping franchise-owned restaurants operating during the bankruptcy period. In a statement by the firm, it was stated that the company planned to reposition the brand by re-establishing its place in the high-margin bar segment and by focusing on sandwiches and appetizers. It also said the company planned to reopen 50 or 60 formerly company-owned Bennigan’s locations by finding new or existing franchisees to operate the restaurants.

In May 2011 new management of the firm stated that they wanted to return the brand to its roots but also give Bennigan’s new life in the 21st century. In an interview of CEO Paul Mangiamele, he stated that the company’s strategy to turn the brand around was multi-pronged. The company planned to introduce a new logo, store prototype, financial and franchise models, an updated menu, improved marketing, adding a catering operation and a new attitude.

On February 11, 2015, CEO Paul Mangiamele and his wife, Gwen, closed on a Management Buy Out (MBO) of the company from its parent private equity firm, for an undisclosed price. The new company, Legendary Restaurant Brands, LLC, is now the owner of the Bennigan’s restaurant chain, its fast-casual concept Bennigan’s On the Fly, and the Steak and Ale brand.

Currently, Bennigan’s operates 23 domestic and 39 international locations in eight other countries.

Fleetwood railway station

There have been three locations for Fleetwood railway station in Fleetwood, Lancashire, England. The first, from 1840 to 1883, was in Dock Street, opposite Church Street. The second, from 1883 to 1966, was in Queen’s Terrace. From 1966 to 1970, the station previously known as Wyre Dock railway station was renamed „Fleetwood“.

In 2009, the Association of Train Operating Companies proposed a new station at Fleetwood as part of a plan to expand the national rail network.

The Preston and Wyre Joint Railway from Preston to Fleetwood was originally opened on 15 July 1840, with a terminus in Dock Street, opposite Church Street. (In the original plan for the new town, the station was to be at the end of London Street, directly from the Mount, but the plan was not followed.) The single-track line ran over an embankment and a timber trestle bridge in straight line northwards across the marshy Wyre estuary, with the station at the far end of the bridge. Within six years the trestle became unsafe and the railway was re-routed slightly inland, and the track doubled. Beyond the passenger station was a goods station at the south end of Queen’s Terrace.

Between 1841 and 1848, Fleetwood was a part of the „West Coast Main Line“ equivalent of its time. The fastest route from London to Glasgow was by train to Fleetwood, and thence by packet boat to Ardrossan. After 1848, the entire journey could be made by rail.

In July 1883, a replacement station was built opposite the north end of Queen’s Terrace, which served as Fleetwood’s main railway terminus from then until 18 April 1966, when it was closed due to the Beeching Cuts.

The railway approached the station from the south. Platforms 1 and 4 ran the full length of the station, the northern half of each platform being under a glass-roofed train shed. Between the platforms were the booking office, waiting rooms, left luggage office and so on. Platforms 2 and 3 were shorter bay platforms which did not enter the train shed. Platform 5 was the boat train platform, the longest of all, which ran outside the train shed along its eastern side. At the north end was a glass-roofed concourse, running from the Queen’s Terrace entrance to the jetty for steamers on the side of the Wyre. On the north side of the concourse were refreshment rooms, separately for first- and second-class passengers. There were further goods sheds and sidings to east of the station.

The station was demolished after closure and a restaurant built on part of the site. In 1973, the remainder was developed into a container port facility, operating ro-ro service to Northern Ireland, which continued until January 2011, when Stena Line removed the Fleetwood to Larne route.

When the Queen’s Terrace station closed, passenger service was relocated to the existing Wyre Dock railway station, which was situated at the southern end of Dock Street, about a half-mile away, and which was then renamed „Fleetwood“ station.
