Bleu de Chanel’s 2018 campaign featured David Bowie’s song “Starman”. It is
from the era of his Ziggy Stardust persona. Wikipedia explains that “Ziggy
Stardust is a fictional character created by English musician David Bowie,
and was Bowie’s stage persona during 1972 and 1973 and featured in the
album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars … Ziggy
Stardust is an androgynous, alien rock star who came to Earth before an
impending apocalyptic disaster to deliver a message of hope. After accumulating
a large following of fans and being worshipped as a messiah, Ziggy
eventually dies as a victim of his own fame and excess.” Ziggy played guitar.
Lutetium (Lu) is a rare earth element whose atomic number is 71. It is used
in positron emission tomography (PET), a form of imaging that is used to
visualize and measure changes in metabolic processes. It is also used to date
the age of meteorites. To produce a single kilogram of Lutetium requires
1,200 tonnes or more of monazite ore be processed. India, Madagascar and
South Africa have large deposits of monazite sand.
In Ontario Motor League v. Municipality of Metropolitan Toronto and Corporation
of City of Toronto, 1961 O.R. 78 (H.C.J.), an action to determine liability
for municipal business taxes, one of the defendants (the Municipality of
Metropolitan Toronto) argued it should not be joined because the assessment
commissioner appointed by council was not an official of that municipality.
However, the court noted “the assessment commissioner of
Metropolitan Toronto is not a sort of ‘Sputnik’ floating around in a special
orbit of his own with no responsibility to the municipality which appointed
him and pays his salary; and the fact that certain of his duties are statutory
does not remove him from the category of employee and official of Metropolitan
Toronto, and for the purpose of the plaintiff’s rights in this action it
is essential that he and the municipality be bound.”
