 Lucius Cornelius Sulla information - Search.com
In 107 BC, Sulla was nominated quaestor to Gaius Marius, who was taking control of the Roman army in the war against King Jugurtha of Numidia.
On the verge of the Social War (91โ€“88 BC), the Roman aristocracy and Senate were starting to fear Marius' ambition, which had already given him 5 consulships in a row from 104 BC to 100 BC.
Meanwhile, Sulla defeated Mithridates in the East and in 86 BC captured Athens and then defeated Archelaus at the Chaeronea, (employing the first known use of strategic battlefield entrenchments, later copied by Julius Caesar) and again in 85 BC at the Orchomenus; battles that confimed his status as a general of the first rank.

 THE PTOLEMAIC PERIOD
Ptolemy I Soter I (ruled 305-285 BC) was the founder of the Ptolemaic line, and he took the Egyptian throne after the death of Alexander IV.
Eventually, a propaganda campaign by Octavian and the actions of Cleopatra VII, the daughter of Ptolemy XII, and the sister-wife of Ptolemy XIII, provided an ideal pretext for the Romans to conquer Egypt.
During the Ptolemaic period and the subsequent Roman period, Alexandria was a thriving and cosmopolitan city, and by the mid-first century BC had a population of around half a million, including substantial numbers of Greeks and Jews.

 How BC Trimmed 107,000 People from Welfare Rolls :: News :: thetyee.ca
Researchers like Seth Klein, the director of the BC office of the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, have suspected for some time that changes the Liberals made to welfare eligibility requirements in June, 2002, are having the effect of shutting people out at the entrance.
The BC Liberals for all their money seem to have a problem getting their voters out en mass which is amazing to me since they have all the old Socred "On Target" Campaign materials which was a very good campaign training programme.
The welfare system in BC is so appalling right now that 14 major advocacy organizations in BC launched a complaint to the Ombudsman this spring; the complaint was organized through a group of public interest lawyers.

 Gaius Marius Summary
)ยน (157 BC โ€” January 13, 86 BC) was a Roman general and politician elected Consul an unprecedented seven times during his career.

It seems that the minimum qualification for the fifth census class (the lowest one eligible for military service) was lowered from 11,000 to 3000 sesterces of property, and already in 109 BC the Consuls had had to seek suspension of Gaius Grachus' restrictions on the levy.
