cpl. 17; a. 1 .50 cal. in. g.; cl. Accentor)

Brambling (AMc-39) was launched 7 August 1941 by W. A. Robinson, Inc., Ipswich, Mass.; sponsored by Mrs. J. McLemmon; and commissioned 15 October 1941, Ensign J. E. Johansen, USNR, in command.

On 13 November 1941 Brambling reported to the Atlantic Fleet and was subsequently assigned to Submarine Squadron 1. She participated in patrol and minesweeping operations off New London, Conn., until 26 December 1941 when she reported to Commander, Inshore Patrol, Montauk Section Base, 3d Naval District. Brambling was decommissioned and placed in service 16 May 1942. She was placed out of service 12 February 1946 and transferred to the Maritime Commission 27 October 1947.


Brambling AMc-39 - History

The Academy Awards®, affectionately known as the Oscars®, are the oldest, best known, most influential, most prestigious, and famous of film awards. The awards (and gold-plated statuettes) have been presented annually (the first awards ceremony was held in May of 1929) by a non-profit professional organization - the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), based in Beverly Hills, California, and founded in 1927. Pricewaterhouse (now PricewaterhouseCoopers) has managed the Academy Awards balloting process since 1935 - all but the first six years of the Oscars. Ever since 1941, when their now-famous confidential envelope system was introduced, marking the first year of complete secrecy, "the Envelope Please" has become a familiar phrase that evokes the thought of the Academy Awards® ceremony.

Except for the early years of the institution, the awards honored films made during the previous 12-month calendar year. [At first, to be eligible for an award, a film had to open in Los Angeles during the twelve months ending on July 31 of the preceding year. To allow each ceremony to cover films for a single calendar year - matching the eligibility period, the 1932/33 awards were based on a 17-month qualifying period. Ever since then, beginning with the 1934 awards ceremony, all awards have been based on openings in the previous calendar year. Films also had to be over 40 minutes long to qualify as feature-length.] Until 1954, the Oscars were presented mostly on a Thursday evening. From 1955 to 1958, they were presented on a Wednesday. From 1959 until 1998 the Oscars were, with a few exceptions, presented on a Monday night. Only since 1999 have the Awards ceremony taken place on a Sunday (traditionally in March). In 2004, the ceremony was moved even earlier (usually in February) to improve ratings and to be more relevant to the awards 'season'.

Comments About the Awards Themselves:

The establishment of the Academy (and its awards system) has had a major effect and influence upon the film industry, due to the enormous boost a nomination or award (for a film or actor) creates, by giving prestige and bottom-line profits to a studio or performer. Studios have often engaged in expensive marketing and advertising campaigns to sway votes, and to encourage contractual loyalty during voting. The Academy has, with limited success, tried to limit the influences of pressure groups and promotion, box office gross receipts, and studio public relations and marketing on voting results. It has also attempted to limit votes for melodramatic sentimentality, atonement for past mistakes, personal popularity, and "prestige" or epic scale, but those influences have often had a decided effect upon the outcome of some of the poll results.

Unfortunately, the critical worth, artistic vision, cultural influence, and innovative qualities of many films are not given the same voting weight. Especially since the 80s, moneymaking 'formula-made' blockbusters with glossy production values have often been crowd-pleasing titans (and Best Picture winners), but they haven't necessarily been great films with depth or critical acclaim by any measure. See The Worst Academy Awards Oscars for more.

Like any other awards, recognitions, or "best" lists, the top nominees and winners do not necessarily reflect or objectively measure the greatest that cinematic history has to offer. Many of the most Deserving Films of All Time (see Films Without Awards) did not win Academy Awards® (and in some cases were not even included in the nominees). In addition, Top Box-Office Films aren't always guaranteed awards success either.

And certain Film Genres (notably westerns, science fiction, and comedy) as well as independent films are not represented in balanced numbers throughout Oscar history - see extensive analysis of Best Picture Genre Biases.

A full and complete history and commentary on the Academy Awards from its early beginnings to the present is available, by decade and by individual year. Each year displays the poster for the Best Picture winner. It must be noted that each year represents the production year of the films considered, not the year of the awards ceremony. For instance, the 1955 year refers to the Oscars awards ceremony in 1956, honoring films of 1955, and is referred to as the 1955 Academy Awards.

There are obvious biases in the selection of Best Picture winners by the Academy. Serious dramas or social-problem films with weighty inspirational themes, biopics (inspired by real-life individuals or events), or films with literary pretensions are much more likely to be nominated (and win). Glossy, large-scale epic historical productions with big budgets (of various genres) have often taken the Best Picture prize. Likewise for studio pictures with big stars - they are much preferred over quirky independent films, although that trend has begun to change in recent years.

End-of-war deactivation

In October 1945, she received orders to Charleston for inactivation. She reported to the Commandant, 6th Naval District, on 22 October. Brambling was finally placed out of service on 12 February 1946, and she was laid up in the Wando River with the Charleston Group of the Atlantic Reserve Fleet. Her name was struck from the Navy list on 26 February 1946. On 23 October 1947, the former coastal minesweeper was sold to Evald Sooter, of Miami, Florida.


Key differences

To be sure, there are key differences between the situations for Tilray in 2018 and AMC and GameStop today. However, in some ways, those differences are more positive for Tilray.

AMC and GameStop face enormous headwinds with the COVID-19 pandemic. GameStop's retail business model is under pressure because of online game purchases. In 2018, the future seemed to look bright for Tilray with the legalization of recreational marijuana in Canada and legalization of medical cannabis in Europe.

Tilray CEO Brendan Kennedy warned his counterparts at AMC and GameStop recently in a CNBC interview, saying, "My advice to those CEOs would be that, at times like this, your company is not your stock and your stock is not your company. Keep it all in perspective as these very unusual market dynamics are taking place."

That's great advice for investors as well. AMC and GameStop stocks aren't the same as their businesses. If you wouldn't want to own the business, don't buy the stock.

As the old saying goes, "History doesn't repeat itself, but it often rhymes." Current investors flocking to AMC and GameStop should heed the lessons to be learned from Tilray's experience.

Brambling

Bramblings are winter visitors to the UK. They are close relatives of chaffinches and will often join with them in winter, forming large flocks. Listen for their nasal tones and look for their white rumps to help you tell them apart.

Identification

Very similar to chaffinches, but the tell-tale sign for both male and female bramblings is a brilliant white rump visible in flight &ndash a characteristic not shared by chaffinches.

Male - winter

  • Male bramblings have a rich, rusty orange breast &ndash in contrast to the redder breast of male chaffinches.
  • Yellow bill with a small amount of black at the tip.
  • Along the head, face and nape, feathers look mottled black and brown.

Male - summer

  • Males come into their breeding plumage in summer, with a few notable differences:
    • Glossy blue/back head, face and nape.
    • Black bill.

    Female - year-round

    • Female bramblings are generally warmer in colour when compared with female chaffinches. Think rich autumn russets and browns, rather than the paler greys and light browns of female chaffinches.
    • Look for a distinctive orange tinge on the chest and throat.
    • Yellow bill with dark grey at the tip and along the centre.
    • Dark brown-grey head, nape and back, with a pale greyish face.

    Listen out for a loud, nasal &lsquote-ehp&rsquo call. Some people think of this as the birds saying &lsquobubble and squeak&rsquo. Bramblings tend to sound croakier and more nasal than chaffinches, and have a less varied range of calls. When migrating, bramblings give out a repetitive, short and hard &lsquoyeek&rsquo call.

    Where to look

    Watch for bramblings from mid-September onwards. They love beech-mast &ndash the nuts from beech trees &ndash so look out for them in beech woodland, as well as farmland near woods. Typically, bramblings head back to their breeding grounds in Russia and Scandinavia in March and April, but occasionally a few breed in Scotland.
