An interesting Neville quote from Indoma. Rich possibilities in this universe of ours. AWAKE THROUGH FEELING Feeling awoke me in a dream. I found myself on a beach. It wasn’t Barbados. It was more like the Pacific Islands. I have not been there, but I had been born in the tropics, so I knew exactly what they must look like. But it was not the West Indies; it was the East Indies. And here, I know I am dreaming. I thought to myself, “I wonder if I held a physical object and forced myself to wake, if I would wake?” So, I tried it. I held onto a pile driven into the beach there – a solid mass of cement. As I held it, I said, “I am not going to let go; I am going to awake right here.” So, I held it, and as I held it, I said, “Come on, awake! You know you are dreaming.” And I felt myself come to, as a person comes to when they are waking in the morning. I awoke and there I am, completely awake, wading in the water, holding onto this object. Then I went towards the beach, and a strange, peculiar ...

He found the island populated by as many as 50,000 Taíno or Arawak Indians.

St. Thomas There is very little about the apostle Thomas in the Gospels; one text calls him the "twin." Rarely during Jesus' lifetime does he stand out among his colleagues. There is the instance before the raising of Lazarus, when Jesus was still in Perea and Thomas exclaimed: "Let us also go and die with Him." Best-known is his expression of unbelief after the Savior's death, giving rise to the phrase "doubting Thomas." Nevertheless, the passage describing the incident, had as today's Gospel, must be numbered among the most touching in Sacred Scripture. In the Breviary lessons Pope St. Gregory the Great makes the following reflections: "Thomas' unbelief has benefited our faith more than the belief of the other disciples; it is because he attained faith through physical touch that we are confirmed in the faith beyond all doubt. Indeed, the Lord permitted the apostle to doubt after the resurrection; but He did not abandon him in doubt. By his doubt and by his touching the sacred wounds the apostle became ...

IS IT TRUE THAT THE FIRST TO CIRCUMNAVIGATE THE WORLD WAS A FILIPINO ??? THE FIRST CIRCUMNAVIGATOR OF THE WORLD : The first European recorded to have come to Palawan was Ferdinand Magellan . While still serving his country, Portugal, Ferdinand Magellan, at the age of 25, sailed to the East Indies to render Military service in the Portuguese crown possessions. While in Malacca, in 1512, he secretly traveled up to the 11 degrees north latitude, where he came upon some islands of the Calamianes Group. And here comes the story that the Magellan’s interpreter, a Malay slave known by the name Enrique, was not from Malacca, but a Filipino who was a Caramianen, a Vishayan-Tagbanua mixed dialect. This interpreter Enrique has interpreted the Vishayan dialect used in Samar, Leyte and Cebu when the Expedition of Magellan was in those places. Because Macanas the chief of settlement in Calamianes who was a deputy of Datu Magbanua was also from Panay and the Caramian people were using a dialect with resemblance to Vis ...

Where do Mangoes come from? (Heaven, right?) How did mangoes get to the USA? in JUST THE FACTS The real answers to both questions make kind of a long story. I can tell you the story today. A) Mangoes are native to southern Asia, particularly eastern India, Myanmar (formerly Burma), and the Andaman Islands. B) Mangoes have been cultivated and loved since Ancient times. C) Buddhist monks likely took mangoes on voyages to Malaya and eastern Asia in the 4th and 5th Centuries B.C. D) The Persians introduced mangoes to East Africa around the 10th Century. E) Mangoes were cultivated in the East Indies before the earliest visits of the Portuguese, who introduced them to both the Brazilians and West Africans early in the 16th Century. F) After becoming established in Brazil, mangoes were carried to the West Indies, first planted in Barbados about 1742 then later in the Dominican Republic. G) Mangoes reached Jamaica about 1782. H) Mangoes have been grown in Puerto Rico since about 1750. I) Mangoes showed up in Mexi ...

The Rubber Ducky As researchers, we often spend thousands, sometimes millions of dollars on sophisticated equipment to help us gather data. So who would have guessed that one of the pieces of equipment that has taught us the most about ocean surface currents would be the little rubber duck; or shall I say thousands of little rubber duckies. Let me explain… …in January of 1992 a freighter on route from China to the United States was in a fierce storm a few hundred miles north west of Hawaii. A container holding 29,000 rubber ducks fell overboard and everyone at the time thought the story ended there. However, later that year thousands of rubber ducks began washing up in Australia, the East Indies and the southern coast of Alaska. There were also a few that washed up in Hawaii, but not near as many as other locations. Over the next four years little yellow ducks continued to wash up in Chile, north west Russia and the state of Washington. As reports of the toy ducks came in, scientist mapped their locat ...

A Japanese book? The Kitab pangeran Bonang, also known as the Book of Bonang (Or. 1928 [olim Mal. 322]), is the second oldest Javanese manuscript in the Special Collections of Leiden University Libraries. The manuscript is a treatise on Muhammadan theology and mysticism in prose written on tree bark paper. This manuscript was in the Netherlands before 1600. It was part of the library of the humanist Bonaventura Vulcanius (1538-1614). How the manuscript turned up in the Netherlands is not known. It seems unlikely that Vulcanius purchased the manuscript directly from one of the first Dutch navigators who visited the North Coast of Java at the end of the 16th century. Vulcanius probably acquired the manuscript from his student Damasius van Blyenburg (1558-1616), who had ties with the Compagnie van Verre. This Compagnie was founded in 1594 by nine Amsterdam merchants in order to dispatch a fleet of ships to the East Indies to buy spices, especially pepper. The manuscript probably entered the library in 1614, ...

Sudden emergence of repetitive laud noises during the night, movements around house associated with sounds produced by sharp weapons and human screams, brought about worrisome dilemmas on how to deal with such an inheritance.

Tegal is the largest city in the Tegal Regency, Indonesia. It is situated on the north coast of Central Java, about 175km from Semarang, capital of Central Java. The Dutch East Indies colonial sugar industry originated in Tegal and the nearby city of Pekalongan, approximately 50km to the east. Tegal Regency remained a major sugar production center until the mid-20th century. The city served as a port for exporting sugar produced on the nearby plantations. Tegal is famous for its warung, commonly called "warteg" or warung tegal. It is also known for its tea products, such as teh botol Sosro, Tong Tji tea, 2 Tang tea, Gopek tea and other brands.

ANDAMAN HISTORY The earliest archaeological evidence documented of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands goes back 2,200 years, however the indications from genetic, cultural and linguistic studies point to habitation going back 30,000 to 60,000 years. In the 18th century, the fearless Marathas admirals Kanhoji Angre, based himself on the islands and from this strategic outpost attacked passing Portuguese, Dutch and English merchant vessels enroute to their colonies in the East Indies. Despite many efforts by the British and Portuguese naval forces, Kanhoji Angre was never defeated until his death in 1729. The mighty Cholas too used parts of these alluring islands as a base and accounts relate that Marco Polo was among the first from the West to set foot on these emerald shores. The more recent history of the Andamans begins post the Great Indian Mutiny of 1857, when the Crown took over the running of the Indian empire and annexed the islands in the 19th century. They turned them into a penal colony for Indian ...

Objectives The attack had several major aims. First, it intended to destroy important American fleet units, thereby preventing the Pacific Fleet from interfering with Japanese conquest of the Dutch East Indies and Malaya. Second, it was hoped to buy time for Japan to consolidate its position and increase its naval strength before shipbuilding authorized by the 1940 Vinson-Walsh Act erased any chance of victory.[47][48] Finally, it was meant to deliver a severe blow to American morale, one which would discourage Americans from committing to a war extending into the western Pacific Ocean and Dutch East Indies. To maximize the effect on morale, battleships were chosen as the main targets, since they were the prestige ships of any navy at the time. The overall intention was to enable Japan to conquer Southeast Asia without interference.[47] Striking the Pacific Fleet at anchor in Pearl Harbor carried two distinct disadvantages: the targeted ships would be in very shallow water, so it would be relatively easy ...

The Australian Malays Cocos Malays are a community that form the predominant group of the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, which is now part of Australia. The Cocos Malays are originated from the descendants of Malay settlers from the British colonies of British Malaya, Singapore, Brunei and the Riau Archipelago of Dutch East Indies. The first Malays are believed to have arrived and settled in the Islands in 1826 "when Alexander Hare, an English adventurer brought his Malay harem and slaves there." [2] In 1827 John Clunies-Ross changed the lives of the Malay slaves when he settled the Islands with his family. The existing Malays and large number of newly arrived Malay immigrants that Clunies-Ross brought with him were employed to assist with the harvesting of coconuts for copra.[2] In September 1978, the Clunies-Ross family sold Cocos Islands to the Australian government. Since then, the Chief of State has been Queen Elizabeth II, represented by the current Governor-General, Administrator Brian Lacy. The Chairman ...

Founded in February 2000 In Perth Western Australia. What does VOC mean? It stands for Verengide Oostindische Compagnie (United East Indies Company). It was formed in the Netherlands in1602 with the aim of sending ships to East Asia to buy pepper, cinnamon and other spices and trade them on European markets. The VOC grew rapidly to become a multinational company with trading forts in southern Africa and all over Asia. halfway through the 18th century, the VOC employed something like 25,000 persons, 3,000 in the Netherlands. The VOC built its own ships, a total of 1500, which together made 5,000 journeys to Asia. They established a network of trading posts stretching from the Persian gulf to the Chinese Sea. The VOC ended its existence as a trading company in 1800. Many of the voyages to East Asia passed along the coast of Western Australia (then known as New Holland). History records that whilst some VOC ships landed on WA's shore successfully, others came to grief there. We know of at least 4 VOC ships t ...

question four done! Question 4: At what point in the chain of events (1763-1776) did a war between England and the Colonies become inevitable? Explain. `The important events that happened between 1763 to 1776 was all of them. Why I say all of them is because each event from 1763 to 1776 impact on how much the colonists were starting to hate the British and the British hating the colonies. It made tension between the colonies, which enables all the events that happened between those times. Examples of what I mean by this is for instance one of the events that happened in 1763 was the French and Indian war. This was the war dealing with the Ohio River Valley. The British ended up asking the colonist to help fight and they said no they didn’t want anything to do with it. The refusal from the colonists made British mad. Then you after the French and Indian War you get the Proclamation of 1763. This set up regulations for the colonist to not travel to the Ohio River Valley. This separated Indians and the c . ...

Feb 17, 1782: French and British battle in the Indian Ocean The worldwide implications of the American War for Independence are made clear on this day in history as the American-allied French navy begins a 14-month-long series of five battles with the British navy in the Indian Ocean. Between February 17, 1782, and September 3, 1782, French Admiral Pierre Andre de Suffren de Saint-Tropez, otherwise known as Bailli de Suffren, and British Vice-Admiral Sir Edward Hughes, commander in chief in the East Indies, engaged in four major battles in the Indian Ocean region: the Battle of Sadras on February 17, the Battle of Providien on April 12, the Battle of Negapatam on July 6 and the Battle of Trincomalee on September 3. The French attacked British possessions on the Indian coast and in Ceylon as part of the world war spawned by the American Revolution. Although Suffren failed to take any of Hughes' ships, he managed to prevent Hughes from taking any of his own fleet. This alone was a significant improvement in ...

ika 138 araw ng unisan...mabuhay po tayo mga unisanin. Unisan, originally called Kalilayan, could be considered the oldest town in the Philippines. As early as 1521, the town of Kalilayan was founded by Malayan settlers. All other towns in the country were established not earlier than 1565, when Spain formally occupied the Philippines as a colony. During the latter part of the 19th century, traditions said that the real founder of the town was a Malayan queen called of Ladya. Hence her title was "Queen of Kalilayan".[citation needed] It is believed that the founding occurred in the Middle Ages when immigration of the Malayans to this country was still predominant. That was before the advent of Islam in the East Indies. This proven by the fact that no traces of Mohamed’s Creed were found in that part of the Philippines when the Europeans arrived. The name Kalilayan derived from the Tagalog root word lilay, referring to a kind of palm similar to buri with the smaller leaves in the size of anahaw leaves th ...
The Byzantines were able to regain control of the country after a brief Persian invasion early in the 7th century, until 639–42, when Egypt was invaded and conquered by the Islamic Empire by the Muslim Arabs. When they defeated the Byzantine Armies in Egypt, the Arabs brought Sunni Islam to the country. Early in this period, Egyptians began to blend their new faith with indigenous beliefs and practices, leading to various Sufi orders that have flourished to this day.[8] These earlier rites had survived the period of Coptic Christianity.[10] Muslim rulers nominated by the Islamic Caliphate remained in control of Egypt for the next six centuries, with Cairo as the seat of the Caliphate under the Fatimids. With the end of the Kurdish Ayyubid dynasty, the Mamluks, a Turco-Circassian military caste, took control about AD 1250. By the late 13th century, Egypt linked the Red Sea, India, Malaya, and East Indies.[11] They continued to govern the country until the conquest of Egypt by the Ottoman Turks in 1517, a ...
Philippines- A Tamil Hindu Colony? The Pre-Spanish history of Philippines was shrouded in mystery. Now the mist around the Philippines is clearing thanks to recent discoveries. The Spaniards, wherever they went, destroyed the local culture, plundered their gold and massacred the people. They spared those people who converted to Christianity. The Philippines is a country of 7000 islands. Nobody asked or wondered what those places were called before they named it “ Philippines” just 400 years ago. They had their own names, their own culture, but they were ignored as primitive and uncivilized. Fortunately one inscription and one golden statue escaped the wrath of the religious fanatics. One important Tamil inscription of Rajendra Chola was not properly explained. Half of the place names mentioned in the inscription is not properly identified. The East Indies were known to Kalidasa of 1st century BC. Parasurama was linked with Aparanta. Kalidasa used to mention Indonesia and the islands beyond as Dwipant ...

On February 17th in American history: 1765 — The House of Commons passed the Stamp Act. The Stamp Act became one of the primary points of contention between the American colonists and Parliament in the years leading up to the Revolutionary War. The Act placed a small tax on 54 separate items, all things made of paper, such as contracts, wills, playing cards, newspapers, almanacs, etc. The Act was part of Prime Minister George Grenville's plan to reduce the massive debt incurred by the British treasury during the French and Indian War. All the money raised by the Act was to be used within the colonies to pay for the expenses of British soldiers stationed there after the end of the war. The colonists did not object to paying taxes. They did, however, have a strong opinion about who could tax them. English law provided that people could only be taxes by their elected representatives. Since the colonies had no representatives in Parliament, Parliament could not legally tax them. Instead, they believed the p ...
The FIRST RECORDED Chinese man to visit Britain was a Qing Dynasty government bureaucrat turned world traveller by the name of Michael Alphonsius Shen Fu-Tsung. Fu-Tsung's first brush with Europe came while in the Portuguese colony of Macao, where he met the Procurator of the Chinese Jesuit Missions in Rome, Philippe Couplet, and was converted to Catholicism. Their shared travels took him to the Spanish Netherlands, now known as Belgium; to Rome, where Couplet was tasked with obtaining a papal dispensation for the Mass to be translated into Chinese; to France, where Fu-Tsung taught King Louis XIV to use chopsticks, and which triggered a reverse "visit" of French Jesuit mathematicians to the Chinese court in Nanjing; and finally, England. In 1686, Fu-Tsung met with King James II, who was so enamored of the visit that he commissioned a portrait of Fu-Tsung by Sir Godfry Kneller, to be hung (weirdly) in his bedchamber. Fu-Tsung went on to catalogue the Chinese collection at the Bodleian Library, before his . ...
The Myrtle Point Herald week after Dec. 7, 1941 WAR DECLARED ON U.S. BY JAPAN, GERMANY AND ITALY Attack On Hawaii Sunday By Japan Without Warning Myrtle Point Herald Dec. 11, 1942 This week will go down in the records as one of the important ones in history. The Second World War became a completely accomplished fact with the declaration of war on the United States by Japan, Germany and Italy, and the acceptance by the United States of that challenge by acknowledging a state of war with these three Axis powers. Great Britain, Canada, Australia, The Netherlands, East Indies, The Philippines, and many other smaller counties took sides and cast their lot with the democracies of war or extension of aid to the democratic side. This most terrible of all the wars of history came to the United States Sunday when droves of Japanese bombers appeared over the ridges and dove in from the sea to bomb and machine gun our fleet in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and the adjacent Army and Navy bases/ The *** had struck preceding b ...

Christopher Columbus, an Italian Jew, named the American natives as Indios. ez/car/39 "Never admitting that he had reached a continent previously unknown to Europeans, rather than the East Indies he had set out for, Columbus called the inhabitants of the lands he visited indios (Spanish for "Indians")," says Wikipedia. While boarding his ship, he was perhaps unaware that he would be driven by two other cycles: the north equatorial ocean current beneath and the north easterly trade winds above of the Atlantic, both of which were powerful engines moving clockwise from Spain to America. And his sail ship was using those engines. There was no way he could reach Japan except go around South America or through a yet non-existent Panama Canal - because in those days America "did not exist", at least in Western minds. The off-spin of the discovery was that it would make way to fulfill the end of a long cherished cycle of 7 times (2520 years) for the nations of Jacob to reign in the times of the Gentiles. If the c ...
PIRATICAL ATTACKS It is assumed that because of the coastal setting and location of the town of San Remigio, she carried with her a past event that was phenomenal before... and that, people could never forget-- piratical raids and attacks taking people into captivity and slavery or commodity. In the work of Domingo M. Non, he described that the scales and intensity of slave raids increased during the Spanish period, when the rewards of the slave market became more enticing with the demands for slaves in the Dutch East Indies (after all, slavery was about business and economy). It should also be noted that the earlier scattered settlements of the natives were grouped by the Spaniards into a “presidio” near the Church for easy administration. This made the entire community an easy target for slavery by the capturing raiders. Further, the relatively weak resistance shown by the inhabitants was DUE to the SPANISH POLICY of PROHIBITING THEM from CARRYING ANY FORMS OF ARMS which they might have used for sel ...

Ambergris can be found in the Atlantic Ocean and on the coasts of South Africa, Brazil, Madagascar, the East Indies, The Maldives, China, Japan, India, Australia, New Zealand, and the Molucca Islands. In rarer cases, it can be found in other locations. Most commercially collected ambergris comes from the Bahamas in the Caribbean, particularly New Providence. Fossilized ambergris from 1.75 million years ago has also been found.[5] .who is responsible for that?
Learn more about Mandela's time on Robben Island! People lived on Robben Island many thousands of years ago, when the sea channel between the Island and the Cape mainland was not covered with water. Since the Dutch settled at the Cape in the mid-1600s, Robben Island has been used primarily as a prison. Indigenous African leaders, Muslim leaders from the East Indies, Dutch and British soldiers and civilians, women, and anti-apartheid activists, were all imprisoned on the Island. Nobel Laureate and former President of South Africa Nelson Mandela was imprisoned on Robben Island for 18 of the 27 years he served behind bars before the fall of apartheid. Robben Island has not only been used as a prison. It was a training and defence station in World War II (1939-1945) and a hospital for people with leprosy, and the mentally and chronically ill (1846-1931). Since 1997 it has been a museum and a heritage site. The Robben Island Tour includes: •A return boat trip across Table Bay •A visit to the infamous Maxim ...

Written by The Editors of Encyclopædia Britannica East India Company, also called English East India Company, formally (1600–1708) Governor and Company of Merchants of London Trading into the East Indies, or (1708–1873) United Company of Merchants of England Trading to the East Indies, English company formed for the exploitation of trade with East and Southeast Asia and India, incorporated by royal charter on December 31, 1600. Starting as a monopolistic trading body, the company became involved in politics and acted as an agent of British imperialism in India from the early 18th century to the mid-19th century. In addition, the activities of the company in China in the 19th century served as a catalyst for the expansion of British influence there. The company was formed to share in the East Indian spice trade. This trade had been a monopoly of Spain and Portugal until the defeat of the Spanish Armada (1588) by England gave the English the chance to break the monopoly. Until 1612 the company conduct ...
Ruston and van Heemstra married in the Dutch-Colonial Batavia, Dutch East Indies in September 1926. They moved back to Europe, to Ixelles in Belgium, where Audrey Hepburn was born in 1929. In January 1932 the family moved on to Linkebeek, a nearby Brussels municipality. Although born in Belgium, Hepburn held British citizenship through her father. Because of her mother's family in the Netherlands and her father's British background and job with a British company, the family often travelled between the three countries. With her multinational background, she went on to speak fluent English, Dutch, French, Spanish and Italian. Hepburn participated in ballet by the age of 5. Childhood and adolescence during World War II Hepburn's parents were members of the British Union of Fascists in the mid-1930s, with her father becoming a true Nazi sympathiser. After her mother discovered him in bed with the nanny of her children, Hepburn's father left the family abruptly. In the 1960s, Hepburn would finally locate him a ...
THE MARIJUANA AND HASHISH ERA-PART 1 The discovery of the passage to the East Indies by way of the Cape of Good Hope was one of the great events of Western European history. Besides bringing great wealth, the explorations that followed the trade routes, the conquests, and the early settlements in the East helped to free Western Europeans from the shackles of medieval parochialism. Once their imaginations had been whetted, Europeans craved to know more and more about the people who lived in these far-off lands. What the people of India looked like, what they ate, how they dressed, acted, thought, etc., fascinated erstwhile provincially minded Europeans. Even the momentous landing on the moon pales before the excitement generated by the landings of the first explorers in the East Indies. In the marketplace of ideas, the demand for news far outstripped supply and created an insatiable outlet for travelogues, or itineraries as they were often called. To supply this demand, anyone and everyone who visited thes ...

(from Mary Knox) My parents' friendship with 'Aunt Lisbet' is one of my earliest memories. She was a most remarkable person: intellectual, artistic, a little intimidating to strangers but a loving friend. From a well-off family in Germany, she was happily married until her husband was involved in a ballooning accident and drowned in the Baltic sea. She turned to the study of painting and did extremely well; by the time post-World-War 1 inflation in Germany destroyed her financial security, she was beginning to earn a living from the sales of her paintings.  In 1923 she made the courageous decision to travel the world, supporting herself by holding exhibitions and selling paintings and prints, and giving talks about Germany and about her travels. After spending time in the Dutch East Indies, South and Central America, Africa and finally Australia, she came to New Zealand - and World War 2 broke out. As an 'enemy alien' she came under considerable suspicion. I remember my mother telling me that in one offi ...

"Captain George East has just arrived from the West Indies *in walks super buff pirate guy with wind blowing*"
We know that "Indian" is not their name. Columbus set out for the East Indies, wound up in the West Indies, and slapped an arbitrary name on a people. When you accept a name that you are not, in time you become what you are not. Richard Moore said, "Slaves and dogs are named by their masters, free men name themselves." So in this country, when we began to accept the word *** which means nothing, and accept the word colored which means even less, and accept the word Black which only tells you how you look and not who you are, we failed to understand that we had been named, and we must become namers, we must be namers of ourselves. - Dr. John Henrik Clarke via craig combs

The Baweanese (Boyanese) The Baweanese or Boyanese came from the Bawean Island in the Dutch East Indies. They built the Kampung Boyan (Boyanese Village) by the banks of the Rochor River, between Jalan Besar and Syed Alwi Road since the time of Munshi Abdullah. Most of them came to Singapore in the late 19th century until the end of Second World War. The majority of them worked as horse cart drivers and later as motorcar drivers. They could not be considered poor as their lands in Bawean were fertile; they had come in search of cash earnings. They wanted to purchase jewellery made of gold and goods that they could bring back to their villages. Some also wanted to build a better life for themselves in Singapore. Most of them were young men who came and supported themselves, living in communal houses. There were several such houses built in Singapore. They were found in places like Adam Communal House in Ann Siang Hill, Teluk Dalam Communal House in Dixon Road and Dedawang Communal House in Sophie Road. Ther ...
Mexicano (Mexican) is derived from the word Mexico itself. In the principal model to create demonyms in Spanish, the suffix -ano is added to the name of the place of origin. The term Mexicano as a word to describe the different peoples of the region of Mexico as a single group emerged in the 16th century. In that time the term did not apply to a nationality nor to the geographical limits of the modern Mexican Republic. The term was used for the first time in the first document printed in Barcelona in 1566 which documented the expedition which launched from the port in Acapulco to find the best route which would favor a return journey from the Spanish East Indies to New Spain. The document stated: "el venturoso descubrimiento que los Mexicanos han hecho" (the venturous discovery that the Mexicans have made). That discovery led to the Manila galleon trade route and those "Mexicans" referred to Criollos, Mestizos and Amerindians alluding to a plurality of persons who participated for a common end: the conque ...

Christopher Columbus’ SantA Who sailed on the voyage? When Christopher Columbus proposed the expedition to the East Indies to King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, the Crown was to provide everything the expedition needed. The three ships, the Santa María, Niña, and Piñta, were to sail from Palos, Spain. The crew would be pulled from Palos and surrounding towns: Moguer, Huelva, Lepe, Cadiz, Seville, Cordova, Jerez, and Puerto Santa Maria. The crew also included a few men who stayed aboard the Santa María; they were from the north country of Basque and Galicia. Columbus had a difficult time hiring sailors. Many of the seasoned mariners looked questionably at the Italian Admiral and the duration of his proposed trip. A few old timers vouched for the voyage, as did the Pinzón brothers, Martín Alonso Pinzón (Captain of the Niña) and Vicente Yáñez Pinzón (Captain of the Piñta), who recruited relatives, friends, and former employees. The expedition carried a few families such as the Niños, Quinteros ...
President Roosevelt (FDR) provoked the attack, knew about it in advance and covered up his failure to warn the Hawaiian commanders. FDR needed the attack to sucker Hitler to declare war, since the public and Congress were overwhelmingly against entering the war in Europe. It was his backdoor to war. FDR blinded the commanders at Pearl Harbor and set them up by - denying intelligence to Hawaii (HI) on Nov 27, misleading the commanders into thinking negotiations with Japan were continuing to prevent them from realizing the war was on having false information sent to HI about the location of the Japanese carrier fleet. BACKGROUND 1904 - The Japanese destroyed the Russian navy in a surprise attack in undeclared war. 1932 - In The Grand Joint Army Navy Exercises the attacker, Admiral Yarnell, attacked with 152 planes a half-hour before dawn 40 miles NE of Kahuku Point and caught the defenders of Pearl Harbor completely by surprise.

The Apostle Islands are a result of the glaciers that once covered North America. “Geologically they are originally part of the main land at the edge of the great riff or fault which formed the depression to which the waters of Lake Superior collected.” When the glaciers melted, waves from the waters of Lake Superior caused erosion that formed the islands. The islands are composed of mostly red sandstone because of the glacial shift. It is widely assumed that Indians were the first to inhabit the island. “There is some evidence that they were seen and possibly visited sometime in the fourteenth century by Indians who were making their way to Isle Royale near the north shore of the land in search of copper.” Not long after, the islands were visited by Étienne Brûlé, a French explorer who, like many French Canadians, was trying to discover a new way to the East Indies. "Historians believe that the Jesuits named the islands the Apostle Islands according to their practice of giving holy names to ne ...

History of South Africa South Africa at a glance Getting around South Africa Destinations Need to know History of South Africa Between 200 000 and 100 000 years ago, modern humans began to evolve throughout Africa – including South Africa. They became the San, who later met up with south-bound Khoi pastoralists from the north and became known collectively as the KhoiSan. The KhoiSan drifted down into the Western Cape at about the same time (300AD) that early Iron Age groups crossed the Limpopo – whose descendants, about 1 000 years later, formed the African kingdom of Mapungubwe and began to trade with India, Arabia and China. Blood River Monument, KwaZulu-Natal In 1652, Jan van Riebeeck and his 90-strong party arrived from The Netherlands and set up a ship-refuelling station at Cape Town – an important stop both geographically and politically, as it was on the only early trade route from Europe and the Americas to India, the ‘Spice Islands’ of the East Indies, and the East. Over the next 200 ye ...
One of the last 'And the rest' survivors of one of my staple tv shows growing up has finally found a way off the island. Actor Russell David Johnson aka Professor Roy Hinkley has passed from kidney failure. He was 89. He could do everything but fix that *** hole in the boat! The only famous other Russell I knew growing up. The first character I thought I could play.

When Europeans first met other cultures, common assumption was that these must be literally soul-less savages, of which there is only something to take, but certainly nothing to learn. Partly instigated by the ideas of hierarchy-based religion, partly by the incessant and exhaustive internal competition between European nations, this assumption dictated colonial attitudes for around 500 years. Today, five centuries after Polo and Columbus, with the ideas of hierarchy-based religion gradually fading to the background, and with the incessantly competitive character of the European way of life proving exhaustive and detrimental to ever more individuals, It seems we are finally approaching the point where we are REALLY about to discover the route to the East Indies; the REAL winds that will sail us to the New World.

This Day in U.S. Military History January 11th 1775 – Francis Salvador, the first Jew to be elected in the Americas, takes his seat on the South Carolina Provincial Congress. In June 1776, Salvador, a Patriot, became known as the “Southern Paul Revere” when he warned Charleston, South Carolina, of the approaching British naval fleet. Thanks to Salvador’s intelligence information, Fort Sullivan in Charleston harbor was able to prepare for the British attack, and the half-completed fort successfully repelled an attack by a British fleet under Sir Peter Parker. On August 1 of the same year, while leading a militia group under the general command of Major Wilkinson, Salvador and his men were ambushed by a group of Cherokees and Loyalists near present-day Seneca, South Carolina. Salvador was wounded and then scalped by the Cherokees. He was the first recorded Jewish soldier killed in the American War for Independence. 1861 – Alabama secedes from the Union.

More than 800 dead laws, some of which date back to the 14th century, should be swept away in a bid to clear up the statute book, a report said today. The oldest, from around 1322, regulated how animals should be taken to pay the king's debts, including details on how they should be fed, cared for and sold, and what livestock should be exempt. It is part of one of 50 Acts which should be partly repealed along with a total of 817 whole Acts, the joint report by the Law Commission for England and Wales and the Scottish Law Commission said. The move is the largest repeals Bill the two commissions have ever produced and is expected to be introduced into Parliament this summer. Sir James Munby, chairman of the Law Commission for England and Wales, said: "Getting rid of statutory dead wood helps to simplify and modernise our law, making it more intelligible. "It saves time and costs for lawyers and others who need to know what the law actually is, and makes it easier for citizens to access justice." He added: " ...

  Two companies, numbering 849 paratroopers, from the 1st Yokosuka SNLF, carried out Japan's first ever combat air drop, during the Battle of Menado, in the Netherlands East Indies, on January 11, 1942.[2] Four hours before the airborne landings, the 1st Sasebo SNLF had come ashore by sea nearby.[1] Commander Toyoaki Horiuchi:[2] led the 1st Yokosuka SNLF (519 men in two waves) in the Menado operation. The Imperial Japanese Navy fielded naval paratroopers during World War II. The troops were officially part of the Special Naval Landing Forces (SNLF or Rikusentai).[1] They came from the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Yokosuka SNLFs. The 2nd Yokosuka took no part in any airborne operations and became an island defensive base unit.[2] They were under the operational control of the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service (IJNAS or Dai-Nippon Teikoku Kaigun Koku Hombu). Rikusentai paratroopers should not be confused with the Imperial Japanese Army paratroopers, known as Teishin.
Java (Indonesian: Jawa) (Javanese: ꦗꦮ) is an island of Indonesia. With a population of 135 million (excluding the 3.6 million on the island of Madura which is administered as part of the provinces of Java), Java is the world's most populous island, and one of the most densely populated places in the world. Java is the home of 60 percent of the Indonesian population. The Indonesian capital city, Jakarta, is located on western Java. Much of Indonesian history took place on Java. It was the center of powerful Hindu-Buddhist empires, the Islamic sultanates, and the core of the colonial Dutch East Indies. Java was also the center of the Indonesian struggle for independence during the 1930s and 40s. Java dominates Indonesia politically, economically and culturally. Formed mostly as the result of volcanic eruptions, Java is the 13th largest island in the world and the fifth largest island in Indonesia. A chain of volcanic mountains forms an east-west spine along the island. It has three main languages, thoug ...

I think I'm just going to become a foodie. It's going to be great work, Systema, and eating exotic foods from around the world. I'll eat things like cronuts, beaver jerky, and buffalo tacos with goat yogurt and banana yucca. This will mean that I can't go to hooters after Systema but its fine I will find a new place, one with the best chicken wings from the Belgian Congo, seasoned with the finest spices of the East Indies and topped with a magnificent sauce created by the top chefs on the island of Trinidad. I will hold my head up high looking down on the pedestrians and their pedestrian food. I will go to soirees with Dom Perignon none of that pedestrian Dom DeLuise special that they drink. I will eat cereal made with whole grains from Austria, sugar from the finest sugarcane of St. Lucia island and top with a doce de leche drizzle from Uruguay. Only the finest for me cooked by the best chefs. No more pedestrian food for me. So please people do not waste my time trying to offer me such pedestrian cui ...

Hello there, thank you for adding me to the group. My name is Mitzi, from Sydney Australia. My mother is Indonesian and my father is Dutch, but he passed away when I was very young so unfortunately I don't know much about the Dutch side. My Grandfather was Joseph Theodore Koks who lived in Indonesia around the 1930s (?). He wrote a few books, but was best known for his book 'De Indo.' His wife's name was Irma and my father was Theodore (Ted) Marius Koks. My ancestry has been traced back to Jeramius Van Reimsdijk, Governer General of the Dutch East Indies (1775-1777). If anyone thinks they might be related to me, feel free to say hello! I'm sure there will be quite a few, as apparently Van Reimsdijk had 5 wives!
The story of the ABDA Fleet Whilst the soldiers were fighting on the ground, the sailors and airmen were busy too. The military success of Japan in December 1941 and early 1942 shocked the Allies. the bombing of Singapore, the attack on Pearl Harbour, the invasion of Malaya and the Phillipines, the take-over of Hong Kong and the sinking of HMS Repulse and Prince of Wales, the capture of the American base at Wake Island, the closure of the Burma Road through to China... the losses kept mounting up. The Japanese Army and Navy were supported by long-range aircraft which were fast and manouverable. Their ships were armed with the most lethal torpedoes in the world, the 'long lance' which was more accurate and twice as fast as the American equivalent. The Japanese fighter plane, the 'Zero' was fast with good range and a dog-fighter to match the Allies fabled 'Spitfire'. However the war-mongering Japanese also had some serious strategic deficiencies to overcome... they had to import nearly all their raw mat ...

A background of the amphibious tank PZInż.130 lays in designs of well-known British designers, John Carden(W) and Vivian Loyd. Working for Vickers-Armstrongs, they designed numerous successful light tanks, which were exported to many countries and influenced many other designs in the world. From 1928 they had been developing a line of the Light Tanks for the British Army, and similar light tanks for export (Vickers Carden-Loyd 4 ton - more on 4TP page). In 1929 they designed Vickers Carden-Loyd Amphibian Tank. It retained features of 4-ton light tanks, like a paired bogey-type suspension with two wheels per bogey, sprung on leaf springs, an engine placed in the right part of the hull, two men crew and a rotating MG-armed turret. The new design introduced a watertight hull of a pontoon shape, and mudguards serving as floats. In water it was driven by a propeller and steered with a ring rudder. It was the first successful amphibious tank design in the world, and the first one produced in series. The Britis ...
The Consolidated B-24 Liberator was an American heavy bomber, designed by Consolidated Aircraft of San Diego, California. It was known within the company as the Model 32, and a small number of early models were sold under the name LB-30, for Land Bomber. The B-24 was used in World War II by several Allied air forces and navies, and by every branch of the American armed forces during the war, attaining a distinguished war record with its operations in the Western European, Pacific, Mediterranean, and China-Burma-India Theaters. Often compared with the better-known Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, the B-24 was a more modern design with a higher top speed, greater range, and a heavier bomb load; it was also more difficult to fly, with heavy control forces and poor formation flying characteristics. Popular opinion among aircrews and general staffs tended to favour the B-17's rugged qualities above all other considerations in the European Theatre. The placement of the B-24's fuel tanks throughout the upper fuselag ...
T - 26 Days. Island of Cebu. Between the 13th and 16th century Cebu then known as Zubu[6] (or Sugbo) was an island inhabited by Hindus, animists and Muslims[7] ruled by Rajahs and Datus.[8] It was a kingdom of the defunct Rajahnate of Cebu. The Rajahnate of Cebu was a native kingdom which used to exist in Cebu prior to the arrival of the Spaniards. It was founded by Sri 'Lumay' otherwise known as 'Rajamuda Lumaya', a native prince of the Chola dynasty which had invaded Sumatra in Indonesia. He was sent by the Maharajah to establish a base for expeditionary forces to subdue the local kingdoms, but he rebelled and established his own independent Rajahnate instead.[9] Nao Victoria, Magellan's ship Replica The arrival of Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan in 1521 established a period of Spanish exploration and colonization.[10][11] Losing favor for his plan of reaching the Spice Islands from king Manuel I of Portugal, by sailing west from Europe, Magellan offered his services to king Charles I of Spain.

currently reading a book entitled The Invention of Racism In Classical Antiquity (meaning: racism in western antiquity). Though unmentioned so far and absent from the index is Giambattista Vico's name or of his related major work "New Science" (Pub. first 1725). What Issac (the author) is describing places his" proto-racism" as effectively the same as Vico's "conceits of nations." Both tend to be strong in the establishing a specific "nation' (in the modern and ancient sense) and in sustaining an "eternalization" of that specific societal order and social stability. The US really needs to come to terms with its actual history. In a very strong sense the independence of the English colonies had two different definitions of "independence." Due to the Sommerset Decison in 1772 in England, those that benefited from slavery both in the north and in the south wanted independence because it was n their interests to perpetuate slavery. In the US early rise to imperialism technically begins with the "Spanish-Amer ...
Sometimes, when I think back of years that had gone by, my memoirs relates very much to greater individuals who could never be known to our environment, they were simple minded, practical and always easy going people. They lived in a time, when I just started to grew up. I don't like to hang on to names of my family, uncles mostly, who taught my brothers their serak art or neither do I even wish to write conceptionally about them.

My father in law, Carl August Samuel Deerns, who taught me humility first, and techniques later. A total opposite from any of my uncles or many others of the older generations of Dutch Indonesians, who only knew about fighting. Of most with a few excamples here and there. Carl taugth me history, philosophy, and I was actually forced to read history with him, in his garage, before he . ...

A BRIEF HISTORY ABOUT YOUR COUNTRY South Africa was settled by the Dutch in 1652 as a stopping point for ships on their way to the East Indies. Fruit and vegetables were grown here to battle the problem of scurvy aboard passing ships. The Dutch first settled the area that was to become Cape Town and with time expanded across the entire tip of southern Africa. After the Napoleonic wars in 1815, South Africa changed hands and became a British colony. Many of the Dutch went north to get away from the English. Here they encountered tribes that, over time, had moved south from central Africa. There ensued a period of war between the Dutch Boers and the Zulus, a powerful tribe led by Shaka. The Boers eventually won and created an Afrikaner state in the north. In 1899 there were the Boer Wars as a result of the English trying to annex this Afrikaner state. In 1910 South Africa became a union, a coalition between the English and Afrikaner states. In 1960 South Africa gained independence from British rule and beca ...
