  Frederick III of Sicily - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Frederick III (or II) (1272 – 1337), King of Sicily, was the third son of King Peter III of Aragon and Sicily, and of Constance, daughter of Manfred.
Frederick landed in Calabria, where he seized several towns, encouraged revolt in Naples, negotiated with the Ghibellines of Tuscany and Lombardy, and assisted the house of Colonna against Pope Boniface.
In 1337 Frederick died at Paternione, and in spite of the peace of Caltabellotta his son Peter II of Sicily succeeded.

 Frederick III the Simple - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
1341-1377), "The Simple", King of Sicily from 1355 to 1377, was the second son of Peter II of Sicily and Isabel of Carintia.
"Frederick the Simple" is often confused with an earlier Sicilian monarch, Frederick II, who chose to call himself "Frederick III" because he was the third son of another Sicilian king, Peter, even though he was actually only the second King Frederick to occupy the Sicilian throne.
The beginning of Frederick III's reign was plagued by intermittent wars with the Kingdom of Naples.

 ROBERT II. (OF FRANCE) - LoveToKnow Article on ROBERT II. (OF FRANCE)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
It was probably in consequence of this accident that his brother Robert, earl of Fife, and not the crown prince himself, was made guardian of the kingdom in 1389; but the latter succeeded to the throne on his father's death in May 1390.
He did not claim the crown of France when his brother died in 898; but recognizing the supremacy of the Carolingian king, Charles III., the Simple, he was confirmed in his offices and possessions, after which he continued to defend northern France from the attacks of the Normans.
ROBERT (1275-1343), king of Naples, was the son of Charles II., duke of Anjou and king of Naples, and in his youth took part in several expeditions to Sicily with the object of wresting the island from Frederick III.

 ninemsn Encarta - American War of Independence
Britain's king, George III, who had succeeded to the throne in 1760, was determined to play an active role in governing the nation.
Due to the king's ineptitude, however, the result was political instability and a lack of direction in national affairs at the same time that Britain's crisis with its American colonies developed.
Bowing to colonial economic boycotts, Parliament, guided by the new Prime Minister, Lord Frederick North, repealed the Townshend Acts in 1770 but retained the tax on tea to assert its right to tax the colonies.

It began at the time when war memories and ideals were rapidly passing; a day of astonishing commercial development was dawning; a sense of doubt and hesitation overtook the freedmen’s sons,—then it was that his leading began.
Washington came, with a simple definite programme, at the psychological moment when the nation was a little ashamed of having bestowed so much sentiment on Negroes, and was concentrating its energies on Dollars.
To be sure, ultimate freedom and assimilation was the ideal before the leaders, but the assertion of the manhood rights of the Negro by himself was the main reliance, and John Brown’s raid was the extreme of its logic.

 THE ARDENNES: BATTLE OF THE BULGE (XXI)
The III Corps attack would have to push off through a fragmentary screen of friendly troops whose positions were uncertain, against an enemy whose exact location was unknown, over terrain which had not been scouted by the Third Army.
The problem facing the III Corps was not the simple one of gaining access to Bastogne or of restoring physical contact with the forces therein, contact which had existed as late as 20 December.
At Gaffey's request the III Corps commander shifted the boundary between the 4th Armored and the 26th Division, making the infantry division responsible for the Bigonville sector and releasing CCR, on the night of the 24th, for employment on the open west flank of the corps with entry into Bastogne as its primary mission.

This impression is strengthened when letters by Hildegard are read together with those of her correspondents, which often seem prosaic by comparison.
First there is a group of exchanges between Hildegard and nuns, monks, abbesses, abbots, and entire monastic communities, and then a section of letters to clergy of unknown locale.
Third is her correspondence with powerful secular figures such as Frederick Barbarosa (both before and after he was crowned Holy Roman Emperor), King Henry II of England and Eleanor of Aquitaine, Queen of England.

Abstract Simple Traversal of User Datagram Protocol (UDP) Through Network Address Translators (NATs) (STUN) is a lightweight protocol that allows applications to discover the presence and types of NATs and firewalls between them and the public Internet.
The protocol described here, Simple Traversal of UDP Through NAT (STUN), allows entities behind a NAT to first discover the presence of a NAT and the type of NAT, and then to learn the addresses bindings allocated by the NAT.

In simple terms, however, there are but three: make it too expensive for the enemy to resist, with “expensive” understood in political, economic, and military terms; physically prevent an enemy from doing something by imposing strategic or operational paralysis on him; or destroy him absolutely.
Contrary to Clausewitz, destruction of the enemy military is not the essence of war; the essence of war is convincing the enemy to accept your position, and fighting his military forces is at best a means to an end and at worst a total waste of time and energy.
The reason is simple; well before it makes any sense to talk about mechanics, it is imperative to decide what effect you want to produce on the enemy.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Frederick William Faber
In 1847 Faber was ordained priest and with his zealous community, now forty in number, converted the whole parish, except "the parson, the pew-opener, and two drunken men." In 1848, Newman arrived from Rome with his new congregation of the Oratory of St. Philip Neri, and established himself at Old Oscott, Birmingham, then renamed Maryvale.
With singular disinterestedness, Faber placed himself under Newman as a simple novice, taking with him all his community who were willing to follow his example.
Unswerving loyalty to the Holy See was his watchword, and devotion to the Mother of God was for him the safeguard of faith and the source and support of true piety.
