St. Antonio Primaldo and his companion martyrs (Italian: I Santi Antonio Primaldo e compagni martiri), also known as the Martyrs of Otranto, were 813 inhabitants of the Salentine city of Otranto in southern Italy who were killed on August 14, 1480. The mass execution is often explained as taking place after the Otrantins refused to convert to Islam when the city fell to an Ottoman force under Gedik Ahmed Pasha.

Characteristics[edit]

The Ottoman ambitions in Italy were ended. Had Otranto surrendered to the Turks, the history of Italy might have been very different. But the heroism of the people of Otranto was more than a strategically decisive stand. What made the sacrifice of Otranto so remarkable was the willingness to die for the faith rather than reject Christ. – Matthew Bunson

The siege of Otranto -with the martyrdom of the inhabitants- was the last significant military attempt by a Muslim force to conquer southern Italy. The slaughter was remembered by Risorgimento historians (like Arnaldi and Scirocco) as a milestone in European history,[1] because as a consequence of this sacrifice the Italian peninsula was never conquered by Muslim troops.[2]
The contemporary Turkish historian Ibn Kemal indeed justified the slaughter on religious grounds. One modern study suggests it may have been a punitive measure, devoid of religious motivations, exacted to punish the local population for the stiff resistance they put up, which delayed the Turkish advance and enabled the King of Naples to strengthen local fortifications. Intimidation, a warning to other populations not to resist, may also have entered the invaders’ calculations.[3] They were beatified in 1771 and were canonised by Pope Francis on 12 May 2013.[4] They are the patron saints of the city of Otranto and the Archdiocese of Otranto.

Pilobolus is a genus of fungi that commonly grows on herbivore dung.
Life cycle[edit]
The life cycle of Pilobolus begins with a black sporangium that has been discharged onto a plant substrate such as grass. A herbivorous animal such as a horse then eats the substrate, unknowingly consuming the sporangium as well. The Pilobolus sporangium survives the passage through the gastrointestinal tract without germinating, and emerges with the excrement. Once outside its host, spores within the sporangium germinate and grow as a mycelium within the excrement, where it is a primary colonizer. Later, the fungus fruits to produce more spores.

Pilobolus sporangium

The asexual fruiting structure (the sporangiophore) of Pilobolus species is unique. It consists of a transparent stalk which rises above the excrement to end in a balloon-like subsporangial vesicle. On top of this, a single, black sporangium develops. The sporangiophore has the remarkable ability of orienting itself to point directly towards a light source. The subsporangial vesicle acts as a lens, focusing light via carotenoid pigments deposited near the base of the vesicle. The developing sporangiophore grows such that the maturing sporangium is aimed directly at the light.
When turgor pressure within the subsporangial vesicle builds to a sufficient level (often 7 ATM or greater), the sporangium is launched, and can travel anywhere from a couple of centimeters to a distance of 2 meters (6 ft). For a sporangiophore less than 1 cm tall, this involves acceleration from 0 to 20 km/h in only 2 µs, subjecting it to over 20 000 G, equivalent to a human being launched at 100 times the speed of sound (33 831 m/s at sea level[2] 121 791,6 km/h). The orientation of the stalk towards the early morning sun apparently guarantees that the sporangium is shot some distance from the excrement, enhancing the chances that it will attach to vegetation and be eaten by a new host.

Laure Olga Gondjout

H.E. Mrs Laure Olga Gondjout

Laure Olga Gondjout (born 18 December 1953[1]) is a Gabonese politician. She served in the government of Gabon as Minister of Communication from 2007 to 2008, as Minister of Foreign Affairs in 2008, and again as Minister of Communication from 2008 to 2011. Subsequently she was Secretary-General of the Presidency from 2011 to 2014. She has served as Ombudsman since 2014.
Political career[edit]
Goundjout is the daughter of Paul Gondjout, a Gabonese politician prominent during the 1960s.[1] She worked as an interpreter and was President Omar Bongo’s private secretary for years. On 21 January 2006, she was appointed as Minister-Delegate to the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Jean Ping, in the government of Prime Minister Jean Eyeghe Ndong.[2] After nearly two years in that position, she was appointed as Minister of Communication, Posts, Telecommunications, and New Information Technologies on 28 December 2007.[2][3] Soon afterwards, Jean Ping was elected Chairperson of the Commission of the African Union, and on 4 February 2008 Gondjout was appointed as Minister of Foreign Affairs to replace him.[2] She took office as Foreign Minister on 6 February.[3]
In the April 2008 local elections, Gondjout headed the candidate list of the Gabonese Democratic Party (PDG) in the third arrondissement of Libreville.[4]
Gondjout served as Foreign Minister for eight months. In the government appointed on 7 October 2008, she was moved back to her old position as Minister of Communication, Posts, Telecommunications, and New Information Technologies;[5] she was succeeded as Foreign Minister by Paul Toungui on 9 October.[6]
Shortly after the death of President Omar Bongo at a Spanish hospital on 8 June 2009, Gondjout said that the constitution and the institutions of the Republic would be respected.[7] Gondjout subsequently supported Bongo’s son, Ali Bongo Ondimba, when he ran to succeed his father as President in the 2009 presidential election.[1] After winning the election, Bongo initially retained Gondjout as Minister of Communication, but he later moved her to the powerful post of Secretary-General of the Presidency on 14 January 2011.[8]
Gondjout reached the age of 60, the official retirement age for administrative positions, in December 2013.[1] Bongo then moved Gondjout from her prominent post as Secretary-General of the Presidency to the comparatively obscure post of Ombudsman on 16 January 2014.[1][9] She was sworn in as Ombudsman
