Ugabhoga: The ugabhoga is an item of kriti that Sri Purandara Daasa introduced in the 15th century (see Ref 1) when he laid out the format for Carnatic music. In compositions with Ugabhoga, a combination of couplets to suit the mood of the main composition is rendered at the beginning. Later it led to freestyle rendering of raga without lyrics known as allapane (alapana). Ugabhogas are common in popular concerts[1] attended both by connoisseurs and non- connoisseurs of music. Most ugabhogas were written and composed by Purandara Daasa and Kanaka Dasa in the Kannada language during the 15th century. In the 19th century, similar concepts were also introduced in the Tamil language by Sri Papanasam Sivan.[2]
José María de Heredia: He was elected to the Académie française on February 22, 1894, in the place of Louis de Mazade-Percin the publicist. Few purely literary men can have entered the Academy with credentials so small in quantity. A small volume of verse - a translation, with introduction, of Diaz del Castillo's History of the Conquest of New Spain (1878-1881) - a translation of the life of the nun Alferez (1894), de Quincey's "Spanish Military Nun" - and one or two short pieces of occasional verse, and an introduction or so - this is but small literary baggage, to use the French expression. But the sonnets are of their kind among the most superb in modern literature. "A Légende des siècles in sonnets" M. François Coppée called them. Each presents a picture, striking, brilliant, drawn with unfaltering hand - the picture of some characteristic scene in man's long history. The verse is flawless, polished like a gem; and its sound has distinction and fine harmony. If one may suggest a fault, it is that each picture is sometimes too much of a picture only, and that the poetical line, like that of M. de Heredia's master, Leconte de Lisle himself, is occasionally overcrowded. M. de Heredia was nonetheless one of the most skilful craftsmen who ever practised the art of verse. In 1901 he became librarian of the Bibliothèque de l'Arsenal at Paris. He died at the Château de Bourdonné (Seine-et-Oise) on the 3rd of October 1905, having completed his critical edition of André Chénier's works.

Second Battle of Dalton: The Second Battle of Dalton was fought on August 14 and August 15, 1864, between Union and Confederate forces in Whitfield County, northern Georgia. It was the Union’s forces, District of Etowah against the Confederate Wheeler’s Cavalry Force. The Union was commanded principally by Major General James B. Steedman and the Confederate by Major General Joseph Wheeler. After Wheeler’s cavalry raided the northern part of Georgia, fighting began after a refusal of Union forces to surrender the area. The union forces greatly outnumbered the Confederate causing them to retreat to a location just outside of the town. Eventually in the early morning hours of the 15th, Wheeler withdrew from the fight, leading to a Union victory at Dalton.

California ballot proposition: Due to duplicate signing or invalid signatures, usually at least 50% more than the legal minimum number of signatures are collected to compensate for possible invalidated signatures. If the number of validated signatures is more than the minimum number required, the proposed initiative measure is submitted to the voters, similar to a referendum as noted above. If the proposition is approved by more than 50% of all voters, it becomes a part of the state constitution (if it is a proposed amendment) or the state's statutes (if it is a proposed law) in the same manner and having the same legal effect as if it had been passed by the state legislature and signed by the governor.
