1. Convention of lily & sapphire
For over 100 years the UEA's annual convention was its largest and most high-profile event, featuring national speakers and workshops on best teaching practices. It also attracted political candidates, and included an awards banquet highlighting excellence in teaching.
Most of Utah's school districts take their fall break on or just before the annual deer hunt, and UEA usually scheduled its convention to coincide with this break, so that teachers could attend without taking days off or hiring substitutes. Eventually the schools came to refer to the fall break as "UEA Weekend," until a state law passed in 2007 barred them from doing so, to avoid favoring or endorsing one employee association over another. In 2018 the UEA ended its annual convention after dwindling attendance, and to give teachers a break from the demands of the classroom.

3. Shrinking Women of lily & sapphire
"Shrinking Women" is a poem by Lily Myers.
Myers recited it at the 2013 College Unions Poetry Slam Invitational; the video was subsequently reposted by Button Poetry and HuffPost, where it went viral. The video of this performance had been viewed more than five million times by 2016. The poem explores how Myers's mother, and as she realizes, herself, have been taught to take up less space, particularly to "make room" for men, such as Myers's brother and father.
For her mother, this manifests as consuming fewer calories, and Myers additionally links this to her own use of apologies when asking questions in class. When spoken, the poem is about three and a half minutes long. At the Invitational, "Shrinking Women" won the "Best Love Poem" prize.
Myers was invited on the radio show Here and Now to talk about the poem in 2014.
4. The Scout of lily & sapphire
The Scout is a melodrama by Alfred Dampier and Garnet Walch set in the American west.
The play came about in part because of the tremendous success Dampier had with his production of The Miner's Right. He decided to construct a play where he would feature W.F.
Carver and his Wild America Troupe into a dramatic story. Carver would play himself and the production would feature a hughe water tank, 12 x 3 metres, featuring real ducks, Indians padding canoes and stunts involving horses. The original production starred Lily Dampier alongside Carver, and was a considerable success.
Dampier later reworked the play as The Trapper for Carver and Lily. Carver later performed The Scout in the USA, although it was not advertised as an Australian play. The play was also revived in 1895 as The Prairie King (with sole writing credit being given to Walch).

8. Swiss bank account tax probe of lily & sapphire
In August 2007, the presence of a hitherto unknown Swiss bank account was revealed. The revelation came after an acrimonious divorce involving his daughter, Cecilie Ditlev-Simonsen, the communications director of Norsk Hydro.
The account, which contained NOK 1.5 million had been inherited by Ditlev-Simonsen after his wife died in 1990, and he eventually admitted to not having paid the Norwegian wealth tax on it. The revelation caused several opposition politicians to call for Ditlev-Simonsen's resignation.
Erna Solberg, the head of the Conservative Party, asked that Ditlev-Simonsen refrain from active campaigning for his party ahead of the local elections scheduled for 10 September. Even if he had not resigned, the 75-year-old Ditlev-Simonsen was set to retire after the election. The incident was believed to be a cause of the Conservative's 4 percent drop in opinion polls, three weeks ahead of the election.

14. Llanbeblig Book of Hours of lily & sapphire
The Llanbeblig Book of Hours is an illuminated manuscript in the National Library of Wales (NLW MS 17520A) that dates from the close of the fourteenth century.
Entries in the Calendar link the Llanbeblig Hours to Wales and more specifically the dedication of the church of Saint Peblig, which is marked June 6th, connects it with Caernarfon. A rare Lily Crucifixion motif is one of the seven illuminated miniatures in this Book of Hours. The Lily Crucifixion miniature is discussed in the context of other examples of the motif in devotional iconography in an NLW journal article by Eddie Duggan.
Even though neither the miniatures nor the decorated borders and initial letters are of any great artistic merit, this manuscript is of interest as it is one of the few examples of an illuminated manuscript that is linked to Wales.
