955 AD On November 23, King Eadred dies childless after a 9-year reign at Frome. He is succeeded by his 15-year-old nephew, Eadwig, as King of England.

956 AD Emperor Constantine VII appoints Nikephoros Phokas as commander of the Byzantine field army (Domestic of the Schools) in the East. He gives him the order to prepare a campaign against the Hamdanid emir Sayf al-Dawla. Constantine makes treaties with neighbouring rulers, to seek military aid. In the meanwhile, a Byzantine fleet under Basil Hexamilites deals a crushing defeat to the Hamdanid fleet at Tarsus in Cilicia.

957 AD Mercia and Northumbria rebel against King Eadwig and switch their allegiance to his brother Edgar. The English nobles agree to divide the kingdom along the Thames River, with Eadwig keeping Wessex and Kent in the south and Edgar ruling in the north.

958 AD The Byzantines under John Tzimiskes defeat the Hamdanid forces in northern Syria. Emir Sayf al-Dawla is forced to retreat – many of his court companions and ghilman fall in pursuit, while over 1,700 of his Turk cavalry are captured and paraded in the streets of Constantinople.

981 Porsche: The 981 was launched in 2012 as a 2013 model and included the base Boxster and Boxster S. It was a totally new car, unlike the 987 that came before it, which was basically a refined, facelifted version of the 986 Boxster.
982: The IRS Form 982 is the reduction of Tax Attributes Due to the Discharge of Indebtedness. This form is used to determine under the circumstances described in section 108 the amount of discharged indebtedness that can be excluded from a person's gross income.
983: In Mid July of 983, Pope Benedict VII died after a 9-year reign. Otto II secured the election of the imperial chancellor and appointed John XIV as the 136th pope.
984: One Thousand numbers short of a fairly good work of Science Fiction: 1984.
985: 98.5 is a Boston area sports radio station. They broadcast Bosox games, I imagine.
986: Another Porsche designation. This one actually was developed in the 1990’s and is credited with saving Porsche from being taken over.
987: On 21 May, King Louis V died during a supposed hunting accident in the Forest of Halatte near the town of Senlis. He was only 20 years old, and his death ended Charlemagne’s Carolingian Dynasty.
