Depending on your perspective, Ukraine is both a very big country, or a very small country. This is Ukraine, scaled on a Mercator projection map, in direct proportion to the most populated sections of North America. While Ukraine's population is over 44.3 million, these Ukrainian borders superimposed on a map of the United States and Canada are home to roughly 57 million people. However, if it were moved about 70 miles west, so as not to count the population in New York/Philadelphia, we'd be talking the exact same population density between Ukraine and a territory of comparable size in the United States. The relative distances are fascinating too, you can see the that New York to Toronto is roughly the distance from Donetsk to Kyiv, or that the distance from Chicago to Detroit is that from Lviv to Zhytomyr, or that Pittsburgh to Toronto is roughly the distance from Kryvyy Rih to Cherhiniv. New Jersey is slightly bigger than separatist-held territories in Donbas, with the distance between New York and Phil ...

PIC: "Ghost of Christmas Present", a colorized version of the original illustration by John Leech made for Charles Dickens's festive classic A Christmas Carol (1843). Father Christmas is now widely seen as synonymous with the Santa Claus figure. History Origins Pre-modern representations of the gift-giver from Church history and folklore, notably St Nicholas (known in Dutch as Sinterklaas), merged with the English character Father Christmas to create the character known to Americans and the rest of the English-speaking world as Santa Claus. In the English and later British colonies of North America, and later in the United States, British and Dutch versions of the gift-giver merged further. For example, in Washington Irving's History of New York (1809), Sinterklaas was Americanized into "Santa Claus" (a name first used in the American press in 1773) but lost his bishop's apparel, and was at first pictured as a thick-bellied Dutch sailor with a pipe in a green winter coat. Irving's book was a lampoon of th ...
THE START OF HIP HOP/RAP Despite the fact that hip-hop as a way of life originated long ago in various parts of North America, the real birthplace of it is considered to be the South Bronx - the black ghettos of New York, one of the poorest quarters. But the word "hip-hop" did not yet exist, it was invented a few years later, when already grown-up culture needed some overall title, by a legendary DJ (DJ), Africa Bambaataa. In 1967 to South Bronx came Clive Campbell from Jamaican, who was labeled Kool Herc. He is considered to be one of the founders of hip-hop. Kool Herc became that, what later became known as "DJ". In Jamaica, the DJ was a "master" of the music system, which evolved around the lives of youth. He arranged parties, made an interesting speech-feast into the microphone. Soon he became known as MC ( "master of ceremony") - he gathered music plates, played and announced them. And when a DJ, besides making music, announced some rythmic text it became known as the word "rap". Soon Kool Herc for t ...

Over the course of 2014, the organization assisted with 17 special aliyah flights from North America, bringing 296 families with 813 children under the age of 18 and 1,703 singles. These olim ranged in age from three weeks to 98 years old, mostly from New York, New Jersey, Florida, California, Illinois, Maryland and Pennsylvania, as well as from Quebec and Ontario, Canada. British Aliyah displayed an increase of its own with 525 British Olim in 2014, including 49 families, 97 children and 183 singles, most of them from London and Manchester. In addition, 2014 saw a 10% increase in lone soldiers who make aliyah without immediate family, who joined some 3,000 lone soldiers already serving in the IDF.

Today the church commemorates Justus Falckner, died 1723; Jehu Jones, died 1852; William Passavant, died 1894; pastors in North America. A native of Saxony, Falckner was the son of a Lutheran pastor and, seeing the stresses his father endured, did not plan on becoming a pastor himself, though he studied theology in Halle. Instead, he joined with his brother in the real estate business in Pennsylvania. Through his business he became acquainted with a Swedish pastor in America, and finally he decided to become ordained. He served congregations in New York and New Jersey. Not only was he the first Lutheran ordained in North America, but he published a catechism that was the first Lutheran book published on the continent. Jones was a native of Charleston, South Carolina. Ordained by the New York Ministerium in 1832, he became the Lutheran church's first African American pastor. Upon returning to South Carolina he was arrested under a law prohibiting free blacks from reentering the state, so he was unable to j ...

The Hal Lindsey Report: Excerpt from the 10/31/14 Report While the threat of Ebola within the United States continues to dominate many of the headlines and much of the attention in the electronic media, there's another growing contagion that has me even more concerned. It's sweeping across North America and it's far more dangerous than Ebola. It's radical Islam. Last week in Canada, two recent converts to Islam killed two Canadian soldiers. One used his car, the other a gun. Then the second one attacked the Canadian Parliament building where he spewed gunfire inside the building before being shot dead by the Parliament's Sergeant-at-Arms. The next day, another recent Muslim convert used a hatchet to attack three New York police officers posing for a picture on a public street. Three teenaged girls from Colorado were intercepted in Germany attempting to make their way to Syria to join the jihad. Another young lady from Colorado recently pled guilty to charges of conspiring to help terrorists in Syria. In f ...
We have a long history of giving blankets to the Indians as "Humanitarian Assistance". However, they were infested with small pox and other diseases. That was our governments solution to the Indian problem of the time... It appears the policy has not changed much in over two hundred years plus.. History 101 "... The history of the naming of the town of Amherst, New York, shows a similar idolizing of the general: On April 10, 1818, the Town of Amherst was officially created by an Act of the Senate of the State of New York. This new town was named for Sir Jeffrey Amherst, an English lord who was Commander-in-Chief of the British troops in America in 1758-1763, before the American Revolution. King George III rewarded Lord Amherst by giving him 20,000 acres in New York, but Lord Amherst never visited his new lands.

You all know I like books; a bit of a Luddite, I guess. However, I want to tell you about a particular type of book. It is the Borzoi Book published by Alfred A. Knopf in New York. I didn't have one of these but now have three. My first arrived earlier this year, Anthony Trollope's "North America". I loved it and ordered a sort of companion book Frances Trollope's "Domestic Manners of the Americans". Then imagine my surprise when our own Jane Smiley's " A Thousand Acres" arrived several weeks ago and I discovered it is also a Borzoi Book. I love the way the pages aren't guillotined and are uneven (tops and bottoms are even but the third side isn't - there must be some publishing or bibliographical term for that). They all have the same dimensions even though Fanny's book was published in 1949, Our Author's in 1951 and our Jane's in 1991. And they all have the inscription - "This is a Borzoi book". I know that a Borzoi is a Russian Wolfhound and that the Borzoi books all have the borzoi colophon but they a ...

Albany, New York (PRWEB) July 10, 2014 The global animal healthcare market is growing due to the increasing animal population of both types: companion and production. Companion animals are those which people tame or adopt for companionship, house/office guards and production animals are raised for meat and milk-related products.

Muslims in Early America Michael A. Gomez addressed the issue of Muslims in America in an article in the Journal of Southern History, LX (November, 1994) 4, 671- 710. Gomez analyzes the regions of the African coast from where Muslims could have been exported and concludes that Muslim slaves could have accounted for "thousands, if not tens of thousands," but does not offer a more precise estimate. It is likely that historians have underestimated the numbers of Muslims actually brought to North America. There is evidence of Muslims in North America in colonial records, but their numbers are limited and they probably came from the Senegambia. A number of Muslims are known to have lived in New Netherlands and New York in the seventeenth century, among them Anthony Jansen van Salee, whose Koran still exists. It is unclear what percentage of them arrived as slaves, but they appeared to have congregated in the vicinity of Gravesend in present day Brooklyn, which was known to have liberal religious attitudes.

Riding Across America By Weronika Kwapisz Translated by Triumph of Westchester (Adriana Scarpelli) Entry Three: The West One month has passed since I started my journey in the saddle of a Triumph Bonneville - wandering throughout the wild prairies of North America. Each state is a new surprise to me. As Europeans we are familiar with the more well known places such as New York or Los Angeles, but states such as Colorado, Utah and Arizona are less familiar…and that is a pity. In particular, Colorado and Utah knocked me to my knees with spectacular views and wonderful trails that run through the National Parks. In contrast, Arizona tried literally to knock me down, welcoming me with thunderstorms and winds that forced me to drive at a sixty degree angle…nice, right?! With that, brisk temperatures hit below 41 degrees F. Pure bliss, isn’t it? But here’s something to laugh at, Las Vegas is 102 degrees F...in the shade!! And at such a temperature I began to yearn for the cold! I’m glad the Bonnie c . ...

New York - the best place to eat French food outside of France?
Bulldog Brower [1983] I can’t honestly say I never even knew of this guy until I read that he once held the NWA American Tag Team Championship with Roddy Piper. As it turns out, Brower had quite a storied career, debuting in the late 1950’s and wrestling throughout North America for 30 years. Brower got his start in Stu Hart’s Stampede Wrestling. After wrestling in Canada, He traveled to Puerto Rico. It was there that he teamed with Luke Graham to win a tournament that crowned he and Graham as the NWA North American Tag Team Champions. Then he traveled back to America to wrestle in New York for the NWF, where he defeated Johnny Powers to become the NWF North American Champion. It was in the 1980’s when he headed to Madison Square Gardens to meet Vince Mcmahon and sign a contract. He ended his wrestling career in the WWF as a heel, facing off against the likes of Johnny Valentine, Mil Mascaras, “Big Cat” Ernie Ladd, and Bruno Sammartino. Sadly, Bulldog Brower passed away in September of 1997 a ...
Garrettsville - Tracey Garrett is putting Garrettsville under the national spotlight… and it has nothing to do with the fact that she shares her last name with the village’s pioneer founder. Garrett — a Pastry Chef who owns and operates Top Tier Pastry from her home on Zupancic Drive — was one of five signature chefs nationwide selected to have their Valentine-themed dessert recipe featured in the February 2014 issue of Dessert Professional Magazine. The New York-based magazine is distributed bi-monthly to 32,000 dessert professionals. Its mission is “to promote, display and enhance the culture of desserts and baking in North America.” Garrett’s decadently-rich recipe for Chocolate Cherry-Pistachio Cake with Red Wine Poached Pears helped to fulfill that mission while validating Garrett’s status as a reputable chef worthy of a national following. Just how intense is Garrett’s featured cake? As she puts it, “True French pastry should require only five or six bites before you feel satisfi ...

. Security Expert: WTC Breaches 'Embarrassing' A leading security expert says his firm uses software that likely would have prevented three recent security breaches at the World Trade Center. In September, three men parachuted from the top of the tower, the tallest building in North America. Then on March 16, a teenager climbed to the top of the building, eluding an "inattentive" security guard on the 104th floor, according to the Port Authority of New York. And on March 24, two CNN producers broke onto the site while covering a story. All three incidents led to arrests. Richard "Bo" Dietl is a former NYPD detective and the chairman and CEO of Beau Dietl & Associates (BDA), a New York-based security firm. He is critical of security efforts at the WTC site, an area that has already been attacked twice by terrorists. "There have been some pretty embarrassing breaches of security at this site," he declared. "We have been lucky that none of these people had been engaged in terrorist or criminal activities." B ...

On this day in 1804, President Thomas Jefferson attends a public party at the Senate and leads a diverse crowd in consuming an enormous loaf of bread dubbed the mammoth loaf. The giant bread was baked to go with the remnants of an enormous block of cheese. Two years earlier, a group of Baptist women from Massachusetts had sent Jefferson a 1,200- pound hunk of cheese in gratitude for his support of religious tolerance. The cheese, they said, illustrated Jefferson's claim that North America's superior natural resources would one day enable the U.S. to outstrip all of Europe in agricultural production. Early Americans' use of the descriptive term mammoth arose from the discovery of a giant woolly mammoth skeleton in New York in 1801. Jefferson, fascinated with the natural sciences, was a member of the American Philosophical Society and helped the organization raise funds to complete the archaeological project. Jefferson's Federalist opponents ridiculed the president's scientific side projects as frivolous. I ...

11 days left until Spring! Today we review once again the Sugar Maple chosen by New York for their state tree. The Sugar Maple is an extremely important species to the ecology of many forests in North America. Pure stands are common, and it is a major component of the northern and central U.S. hardwood forests. In the north, it forms associations of beech-maple and Sugar Maple-yellow birch, which is most important beyond the northern limit of beech. Sugar Maple-American basswood, Sugar Maple-white ash and Sugar Maple-ironwood--red oak are also common forest associations. Sugar Maple tends to favor cooler climates. It attains its greatest size and growth potential in southern Canada and the northeastern US where the growing season is 4-5 months and summers are mild. In this region, the tree is abundant and found in large stands with beech and birches, but in Zones 6-7, it gives way to oak-hickory forests and occurs only in isolated, scattered patches. Sugar Maple is among the most shade tolerant of large . ...
Snake oil is an expression that originally referred to fraudulent health products or unproven medicine but has come to refer to any product with questionable or unverifiable quality or benefit. By extension, a snake oil salesman is someone who knowingly sells fraudulent goods or who is himself or herself a fraud, quack, charlatan, and the like. Two main hypotheses for the origin of the term are as follows: The more common theory is that the name originated in the Western regions of the United States and is derived from a topical preparation made from the Chinese Water Snake (Enhydris chinensis) used by Chinese laborers to treat joint pain. The preparation was promoted in North America by travelling salesmen who often used accomplices in the audience to proclaim the benefits of the preparation.[citation needed] One source, Dr. William S. Haubrich in his book Medical Meanings (1997, American College of Physicians) claims that the name came from the Eastern United States. The Native Americans of New York and ...

18 days left now until Spring! Kentucky's State Tree the Tulip Tree is once again reviewed in our Countdown to Spring! Tennessee and Indiana also chose this tree. One of the largest and most valuable hardwoods of eastern North America, it is native from southern New England and New York westward to southern Michigan, and south to Louisiana and northern Florida. It is found sparingly in New England, it is abundant on the southern shore of Lake Erie and westward to Illinois. It extends south to north Florida, and is rare west of the Mississippi River, but is found occasionally for ornamentals. Its finest development is in the Southern Appalachian mountains, where trees may exceed 170 feet in height. Liriodendron tulipifera is generally considered to be a shade-intolerant species that is most commonly associated with the first century of forest succession. In Appalachian forests, it is a dominant species during the 50–150 years of succession, but is absent or rare in stands of trees 500 years or older. ...

Beres Hammond, From Jamaica With Love. NEW YORK -- Maybe you'd expect a guy who has perfected the art of musical seduction to look a little less ordinary. In appearance, veteran Jamaican singer Beres Hammond seems completely average. He's a slim man with a neat beard and rectangular wire-rimmed glasses that only recently replaced the owlish ones he has worn for years. His ever-present baseball caps and other hatwear suggest he could be balding. His teeth are a little crooked, and his ears stick out, ever so slightly. But Hammond, 50, hasn't built his career on good looks. The singer-songwriter specializes in romantic songs, and he sings them exceptionally well. Dancehall-style chanting has dominated reggae since the late '80s, but when it comes to actual singers, Hammond is by far the most popular in all the West Indies. His fan base isn't limited to the Caribbean, though: He frequently tours North America, Europe and Japan. Here in New York, he regularly sells out the Theater at Madison Square Garden. To ...
Nigerians are not "typical". They are just strong players. Many Nigerians are quick to lament how Nigerians do things differently, or seem difficult, or do not follow the rules. Having lived in Africa, Europe, and North America, I can authoritatively say that Nigerians are just like other nationalities, except that they are fierce competitors, strong players, and excel in whatever field of endeavor they find themselves. For example, they say Nigerians are impatient and jump queues. But here in America, Nigerians have no problem waiting in line for their turn. Once they get here, they comply and comport themselves accordingly. They say Nigerians are brash and not capable of rendering good customer service. In this New York hospital where I work, I see Nigerian clerks, patient care aides, nurses, and doctors; and they seem to be more polite, courteous, and professional than their American counterparts. They say some Nigerians are fraudulent. But Americans, Russians, and Italians also engage in fraud. Nigeri ...

JANUARY 30, 2014 . . . THE TRAINING CONUNDRUM . . . . . . PART TWO . . . If you're coaching for an audition, it's a one - on - one encounter, coach and actor. I'm in the middle of an audition blizzard with students fanning out across North America, hoping to get accepted by famous organizations specializing in brutally expensive post secondary, professional actor training. One is off today, auditioning for Julliard and Pace University (loosely affiliated with The Actors Studio) in New York - another off in a few days to Chicago, auditioning for Julliard, Tisch (New York University) and Yale. That's not the end of the audition journey for either of these students. They'll audition for at least 3 more schools in the coming months. It's interesting to note that their top picks are outside Canada - one will audition for RADA (The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, London) - and they both view Canadian schools as "back ups." I'm also coaching, via Skype in some cases, younger students seeking admission to perf ...
R.I.P. - Jimmy "The Cat" Dupree I just received word that former Light Heavyweight Contender Jimmy "The Cat" Dupree has passed away! Jimmy "The Cat" Dupree Inducted into the New Jersey Boxing Hall of Famae on November 13, 1987 James (Jimmy) Dupree was born on April 27, 1936, in McClellanville, South Carolina. One of five children, he is the older of two boys. When Jimmy was about fifteen years old, he heard the Joe Louis/Ezzard Charles fight on radio and felt "vibrations." That was when he decided to become a boxer. He had always liked boxing, but since there was no way to become a boxer in McClellanville, he forgot about it. In the late fifties Jimmy went to New York, and through manager and trainer Willie Grunes, became involved in amateur boxing. In 1961, after four amateur fights, Dupree turned professional. For five years he tried unsuccessfully to obtain a professional bout and quit. When he went to the gym to get his belongings, he met manager Gary Garafola and his fighter, Frankie DePaula.

During the entire period between the early part of the sixteenth century to 1787, thousands of Huguenots left their homes in France for other countries because of recurring waves of persecution. As Esther Forbes, wrote in Paul Revere and the World He Lived In (Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1942): "France had opened her own veins and spilt her best blood when she drained herself of her Huguenots, and everywhere, in every country that would receive them, this amazing strain acted as a yeast." Huguenot settlers immigrated to the American colonies directly from France and indirectly from the Protestant countries of Europe, including the Netherlands, England, Germany, and Switzerland. Although the Huguenots settled along almost the entire eastern coast of North America, they showed a preference for what are now the states of Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and South Carolina. Just as France suffered a notable loss though the emigration of these intelligent, capable people, so the American ...

Nick Symmonds: Focusing on the Kilometer for Millrose By ELLIOTT DENMAN The world indoor record for the 1,000 meters - one kilometer, "the K" - is heading into its 14th year. It's 2:14.96 and has been the property of Denmark's Wilson Kipketer since the 20th of February 2000. He ran it in Birmingham, England. Only four other men have ever broken 2:16 - Morocco's Noureddine Morceli (2:15.26 in 1992), Kenya's Kennedy Kimwetich (2:15.50 in 2000), Burundi's Venuste Niyongabo (2:15.62 in 1995) and Sudan's Abubaker Kaki (2:15.77 in 2008.) Fastest ever "K" man from the Western Hemisphere is Brazil's Joaquim Cruz (2:16.99 in 1989.) Fastest ever "K" man from the USA is David Krummenacker (with his 2:17.86 in 2002.) David K. ran that "K" at Boston's Reggie Lewis Center, so it's also the fastest ever run in North America. New Jerseyan Robby Andrews nearly nudged Krummencacker off the U.S. record list with his 2:17.90 at New York's Armory Track Center nearly a year ago, Feb. 1, 2013 to be precise.

Plains Chautauqua – May 2-4, 2014 A Journey to Plains Keynote Speaker: President Jimmy Carter The first Chautauqua was organized in 1874 by John Heyl Vincent, a Methodist Minister and Lewis Miller, an inventor, industrialist, and Sunday School Superintendent, on the shores of Chautauqua Lake in New York. Chautauquas started as a Normal School Assembly forSunday School workers which sparked a movement across North America, reaching its high-point in 1907. The Circuit Chautauqua, also called tent Chautauqua or traveling Chautauqua began in 1904. At their peak in the 1920s, circuit Chautauquas appeared in over 10,000 communities, reaching over 45 million people by bringing entertainment and culture with speakers, teachers, musicians, entertainers, and preachers. These programs were presented in tents pitched in or near small towns. Programs would occur for several days, and then the performers would move to the next location. Plains, Georgia was included in the Chautauqua touring circuits and performances ...

For anyone interested in RoadKill, here's a sample chapter. Read it with the lights on. It rolled from the factory in Detroit in the early Fall of 1971, eighteen feet of steel, rubber, and vinyl, weighing in at nearly five thousand pounds. A four hundred forty cubic inch block rested between the front fenders, and the golden tan paint glistened in the sun. The Chrysler Newport Custom was one of the largest automobiles in the United States, larger than the Oldsmobile Delta 88, larger than the Chevrolet Caprice, larger than just about anything ever built in North America. It a word, it was huge, a virtual house on wheels. It was built before the gas crunch, before exhaust emissions were implemented, before disco hit New York. Even as a coupe, it was considered a family car, a luxury suitable for the wife and children, designed for long road trips, well before the thought of terrorism kept most people from traveling the country. It was bought new by a successful businessman in the early Spring of 1972 with o ...
Snowy Owl Invasion Puzzles Scientists, Dazzles Enthusiasts By Mark Leberfinger, AccuWeather.com Staff Writer January 08, 2014; 5:16 AM . Snowy owls have been spotted in the Northeast U.S., all the way down to South Carolina since early December. Scientists aren't sure why the owls, who spent much of their lives around the Arctic Circle, have arrived in such large numbers. "It's a great opportunity to see a magnificent animal," Kevin McGowan of Cornell University's Lab of Ornithology in Ithaca, N.Y., said. The owls, the largest in North America, do make forays into the Northeast but this year is different, McGowan said. "Here in central New York, there were 10 sightings in 10 days," he said. "This is just not the normal way of things." There are two conceivable possibilities for the irruption, or rapid and irregular, increase of owls. "One is that they have a very high success rate in breeding this year over last year. The parents tend to jostle them out of the nest," McGowan said. "The opposite possibilit ...

MORMONS Mormons /ˈmɔrmənz/ are a religious and cultural group related to Mormonism, the principal branch of the Latter Day Saint movement of Restorationist Christianity, which began with the visions of Joseph Smith in Upstate New York during the 1820s. After Smith's death in 1844 the Mormons followed Brigham Young to what would become the Utah Territory. Today Mormons are understood to be members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). Some Mormons are also either independent or non-practicing. The center of Mormon cultural influence is in Utah, and North America has more Mormons than any other continent, though the majority of Mormons live outside the United States. Mormons have developed a strong sense of communality that stems from their doctrine and history. During the 19th century Mormon converts tended to gather to a central geographic location, and between 1852 and 1890 a minority of Mormons openly practiced plural marriage, a form of religious polygamy. Mormons dedicate ...

State of New York | Executive Chamber Andrew M. Cuomo | Governor For Immediate Release: December 19, 2013 GOVERNOR CUOMO ANNOUNCES CLOSING ON LARGEST-EVER FEDERAL TIFIA LOAN FOR NEW NY BRIDGE Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that the New York State Thruway Authority and the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) have closed on a $1.6 billion low interest loan from USDOT’s Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act (TIFIA) program to support the New NY Bridge project.

You grew up in an Irish neighbourhood didn’t you? Yeah, in West Roxbury, which is a section of Boston that has a lot of Irish. That part of town could be pretty tough at times, and I had to learn how to use my fists to get by as a kid. Growing up there definitely had an influence on the way I played hockey. Is your Irish heritage something that is important to you? Yes it is. I’m very proud of my roots. My brother and I have done some research into our ancestry and we can trace our father’s family history back several generations to Cork, Kilkenny and the West Coast. How has that heritage has influenced you? I’m typically Irish in so many ways; loud, opinionated and emotional. And I’ve always had a real blue-collar work ethic, like a lot of those who settled North America. Cities like Boston and New York were built on the backs of hardnosed Irish immigrants. I know that sounds like stereotyping, but it pretty much describes me to a tee. What about the Irish being renowned for their drinking? It ...

History Of The Shipwreck Nuestra Senora De Atocha (The Atocha Story) Spanish expansion in the New World was rapid and by the late 1500's Mexico City, Lima and Potosi had populations that exceeded the largest cities in Spain. It would be another half a century or more before the chief cities of colonial North America; Boston, Philadelphia, and New York, were to be founded. Colonists were granted huge tracts of land to grow tobacco, coffee and other products for export to the mainland. More important to the throne however, was the continent's mineral wealth of silver and gold, which were vital to Spain's continued growth. Trade with the colonies followed a well-established system. Beginning in 1561 and continuing until 1748, two fleets a year were sent to the New World. The ships brought supplies to the colonists and were then filled with silver, gold, and agricultural products for the return voyage back to Spain. The fleets sailed from Cadiz, Spain early in the year, following the approximate route that Co ...

Reasons to consider divorce (by Teddy Raja) The divorce rate in America is one of the highest in the world (over 50 percent). But the divorce rate of Muslims in North America is almost as high, according to New York based sociologist Ilyas Ba-Yunus. Yes, it's true. Muslims today are divorcing in larger numbers than before. There are clearly problems within families that have not been addressed: dysfunction, miscommunication, and in a number of cases violence and abuse. But while Muslims are taking this step in larger numbers, what does Islam have to say about it? The Islamic perspective on divorce "Divorce is something that is very much discouraged in Islam," explains Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). "It is called, according to one of the Hadith of the Prophet Sal Allahu alayhi wa Sallam (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) 'the most hateful thing that is permissible.'" This stance discouraging divorce needs to be seen in a balanced way, notes S ...
THE MOHAWK TRIBE===The Mohawk People are the most easterly tribe of the Iroquois Confederacy. They are the People of "Ka Nee-en Ka" (or "Flint Stone Place") and are an Iroquoian-speaking indigenous people of North America. They were historically based in the Mohawk Valley in Upstate New York; their territory ranged to present-day southern Quebec and eastern Ontario. Their traditional homeland stretched southward of the Mohawk River, eastward to the Green Mountains of Vermont, westward to the border with the Oneida Nation's traditional homeland territory, and northward to the St Lawrence River. As original members of the Iroquois League, or Haudenosaunee, the Mohawk were known as the "Keepers of the Eastern Door". For hundreds of years, they guarded the Iroquois Confederation against invasion from that direction by tribes from the New England and lower New York areas. Mohawk religion is predominantly Animist. Their current settlements include areas around Lake Ontario and the St Lawrence River in Canada an ...

Tuesday evening, Nov. 19, Israeli government spokesperson Mark Regev told CNN’s Jake Tapper that it isn’t just Israel in Iran’s cross-hairs, but it is the U.S. itself that is an intended target of Iran’s nuclear weapon. The news that the Israeli government clearly wanted the American people to hear is the direct consequences for Americans sitting in their homes in New York and Boston and Los Angeles and Houston. This was the “okay, Washington, you may be willing to bet Iran won’t attack Americans in their homes, but the American people may feel a bit differently about that” approach. Regev said: “The Iranians are building intercontinental ballistic missiles. They’re not building them for us, they’ve already got missiles that can reach Israel. They’re building them for you - for targets in North America and Western Europe. It’s crucial that we don’t allow them to get nuclear weapons.” Americans need to see the problem of Iran becoming a country with nuclear weapons whose ICBMs . ...

Being here in New York certainly has opened my eyes. I've seen the big lights, sky buildings beauty of the city and I've seen the proper hard no escape ghettos of the Bronx. Yesterday in Philadelphia was the same, you could drive 10 mins from the beauty of it all and be in the toughest ghettos in America. Back in Scotland we have it easy no matter how hard a day you think you've had but trust me the ghettos here are so deprived with no prosperity of achievement being young growing up it takes a rare breed to fight out of it!!

Born in Queens, New York, Jesse Malin’s passion for music began at an early age. Upon receiving his first nylon stringed acoustic guitar, Jesse taped an old 1950’s reel-to-reel recorder with a beat-up attached microphone to its body and the soon-to-be songwriter began his musical career…   Malin began playing live the age of twelve years old in the seminal hardcore band Heart Attack, releasing the first NYC hardcore seven inch, God Is Dead, on Damaged Goods Records. Before he turned fourteen, Jesse continued to tour North America with Heart Attack and released two more records with the band. Upon the group’s disbandment in 1984, Malin spent time as a gas station attendant, a health food store clerk and eventually found a home as a “man with a van,” working with everyone from Barbara Streisand to The Swans. In the early 1990’s, Jesse and his childhood pals formed the rock and roll band D Generation and released three albums, touring the globe several times over before parting ways in 1999. ...

All Science, All the Time What you'll observe depends on where you live. Skywatchers in the Eastern United States, northeastern South America, southern Europe, the Middle East and most of Africa will be treated to a partial solar eclipse, while people along the path of totality in central Africa will see the sun totally obscured by Earth's nearest neighbor for a few dramatic moments. If you live in eastern North America, you'll have to get up early to enjoy the show. The partial eclipse will be visible at sunrise — about 6:30 a.m. local time — and last for about 45 minutes, experts say. Viewers in Boston and New York will see the sun more than 50 percent covered by the moon, while our star will appear 47 percent obscured from Miami and Washington, D.C. All of the action in this part of the world will be occurring low in the sky, less than 8 degrees from the east-southeast horizon. (Your fist held at arm's length measures about 10 degrees.)

New York: A gigantic footprint found in an Ohio woman's backyard has led to speculation that it may have been left behind by the mysterious Bigfoot. From toe to toe, the footprint measures 7.5 inches wide. Its length, however, appears comparable to a male human's foot. Wendy, who did not give her last name, came across the imprint while doing yardwork, last month. It was planted about an inch and a half deep in the mud, said the Ashtabula County resident. "It's much larger than anything me or my husband has ever seen," Wendy told NewsNet5. "I took a picture to show my mother's husband, who's a hunter, and he said it wasn't a human's. I'm not claiming that footprint to be anything. I don't know what that is," she said. However, Wendy has ruled out that the footprint belongs to a bear, 'New York Daily News' reported. "The hunters agree, it's not a bear. These are definitely toes. They are not claws," she said. So, could this be the footprint of a Sasquatch, otherwise known as Bigfoot? For Wendy, this is not ...

Since 1982, when I graduated from college as a civil engineer until in these days, I got a lot of opportunities to leave Lebanon, either for work or for Migration (IOM), but I rejected all of them because I believe in my country, even in the hard days that passed during the civil war, where we could not find something to eat, but I have not lost my faith. Today many young people dream of how to leave everything behind them trying to leave the country, at the same time I Feel Proud because two of my best friends are doing their best to start a huge project which will cost millions of U.S. dollars in the most dangerous region in Lebanon, which is the north, some people may they say: this is crazy, but I think they are brave Lebanese men, believe in their own country.

Poll Shows Major Shift in Identity of U.S. Jews By LAURIE GOODSTEIN The first major survey of American Jews in more than 10 years finds a significant rise in those who are not religious, marry outside the faith and are not raising their children Jewish — resulting in rapid assimilation that is sweeping through every branch of Judaism except the Orthodox. The intermarriage rate, a bellwether statistic, has reached a high of 58 percent for all Jews, and 71 percent for non-Orthodox Jews — a huge change from before 1970 when only 17 percent of Jews married outside the faith. Two-thirds of Jews do not belong to a synagogue, one-fourth do not believe in God and one-third had a Christmas tree in their home last year. “It’s a very grim portrait of the health of the American Jewish population in terms of their Jewish identification,” said Jack Wertheimer, a professor of American Jewish history at the Jewish Theological Seminary, in New York. The survey, by the Pew Research Center’s Religion & Public Li ...

When someone asks me "where were you when the US government shut down?" I'll be able to answer that I was on my way to Bear Mountain State Park, in the Lower Hudson River Valley, New York. If you've never heard of it, it's not even 50 miles north of the big city, and it's about as gorgeous as you can imagine. I would put it in the same category as parts of Yosemite, but on a smaller scale (and even then, not by too much). Peering out from the top of the mountain (which is easily accessible by car, by the way), you can see the Hudson River flowing at a point where it finally begins to narrow. Looking west, all you see are more rippling mountains, and you can imagine what the First Peoples must have thought of this bounteous place. Admittedly, it's marred a bit by the typical signs of the East: the sound of cars and the sight of a few parking lots below. There's also a good percentage of Jewish sight-seers in their hech caps, and the rolling sound of the default regional accent (twalking, no doubt, about th ...

St. Isaac Jogues, St. John de Brébeuf and Companions French Jesuits were the first missionaries to go to Canada and North America after J. Cartier discovered Canada in 1534. Their mission region extended from Nova Scotia to Maryland. Isaac Jogues, John de Brebeuf, Gabriel Lalemant, Noel Chabanel, Charles Garnier, Anthony Daniel, Rene Goupil and John de Lalande (the first six Jesuits, the last two laymen) preached the gospel to the Iroquois and Huron Indians, and after being tortured, they were martyred in the area of what is now Auriesville, New York. The martyrdoms took place between 1642 and 1649. Ten years after the martyrdom of St. Isaac Jogues, Kateri Tekakwitha was born in the same village in which he died. These martyrs are co-patrons of Canada. The missionaries arrived in Canada less than a century after its discovery by Cartier in 1534, in the hope of converting the Indians and setting up "New France." Their opponents were often the English and Dutch colonists. When Isaac Jogues returned to Pari ...

Fracking shifts the global energy balance 2012-12-14 13:05 New York – North America's shale oil and gas boom has shifted the balance in global energy markets, giving the US and Canada new leverage as exporters, despite the Middle East retaining a pivotal role. While Canada has long been a major energy exporter, the rise of shale-based hydrocarbons has meant a crucial change for the United States, which could move from being the world's leading importer of oil to a net exporter by 2017. It has become the Gold Rush of the 21st century, with tens of billions of dollars in revenues and hundreds of thousands of new jobs. “That revolution is real,” Marvin Odum, president of Shell Oil, said at a recent Platt's conference in New York. “America suddenly has a 100 year supply of natural gas 'in the bank' and the world has 250 years, thanks in part to breakthroughs in the technology that unlock hydrocarbons from tight rock and shale.” Fracking Since 2007, the technology of hydraulic fracturing, or “frack ...
New York during the later Ordovician: North America roughly straddled the equator. It was rotated about 45 degrees clockwise from its present orientation. Much, if not all, was covered by ocean. The map shows North America separated from other continents; an alternative theory places it very near the West Coast of South America. (The positions of the plates during the Ordovician has been determined by the remnant paleomagnetism in the rocks deposited at the time. Paleomagnetism can only determine the paleolatitude, and paleolongitude must be determined from other, indirect evidence.) The map below shows the situation during the Middle Ordovician, at the time the strata covered here were deposited. Mohawk Valley Fossils Map and key of the numbered sections The map above shows the area in which the fossils were found. They were collected at 24 locations ("sections") in the Mohawk River Valley.

On September 21, 1780, General Benedict Arnold betrayed his country when he gave the British information that could allow them to capture the American fort at West Point on the Hudson River in New York. At the time, Americans regarded Arnold as a hero for his bravery in the Revolutionary War. He had fought with daring skill at Fort Ticonderoga, Quebec, Valcour Island, and Saratoga. But he grew resentful at promotions other officers received, and he hungered for money to support the lifestyle he enjoyed with his young wife, the beautiful young Peggy Shippen. Arnold began exchanging secret messages with the enemy, offering betrayal in exchange for money and high rank in the British Army. On the night of September 21, he sealed the traitorous deal when he met with Major John André, aide to the commander of all British forces in North America, and handed him detailed information on West Point, which Arnold commanded. Arnold returned to the fort while André, disguised in civilian’s clothes, made his way to ...

PNCR LEADER COMMENDS North American REGION Leader of the People’s National Congress Reform, Brigadier David Granger has commended the Party’s North American Region (NAR) for its continuous support and its commitment to human development in their homeland. Brigadier Granger, on a recent visit to New York, held meetings with the Regional Executive Committee and the general membership. He received reports from representatives of the states of Florida, Georgia, New Jersey, New York and Canada and discussed plans for the forthcoming local government elections. He was accompanied by member of the Central Executive Committee and National Assembly, Mr. Joseph Harmon, MP. Brigadier Granger reminded members that half of all Guyanese seemed to live in North America and the other half in South America. The two halves needed to work together for the whole. He thanked persons who established non-political, non-governmental organisations for providing succor and support for those in need in their homeland.

This past week was my 13th straight year attending North America's biggest film festival.  Here's a quick recap:   12 Years A Slave Epic film based on a true story of a freeman from New York kidnapped and sold into slavery.  Directed by Steve Mcqueen (who helmed my number 1 film of 2011 Shame) and he pulls no punches when presenting the brutallity of slavery.  I fully expect this to garner about 6-10 Oscar noms.  A+   Gravity Space epic from the director of Children of Men.  It is not an overstatement to call this a stunning achievement in filmmaking.  The level of techical achiecement raises the bar from the spectacular boat sinking in Titanic, but does so over the course of about 90 minutes straight. I would highly recommend seeing this in 3D.  I would bet that it will be nomiated for Best pic and Best actress for Sandy Bullock and every techical award. A+   Philomena Based on a true story of an Irish woman searching for the son she was forced to give up to adoption 50 years prior after bei ...

The Schaghticoke are a Native American tribe of the Eastern Woodlands consisting of descendants of Mahican (also called "Mohican", but not to be confused with the Mohegans), Potatuck (or Pootatuck), Weantinock, Tunxis, Podunk, and other people indigenous to what is now Connecticut, New York, and Massachusetts, who amalgamated after encroachment of white settlers on their ancestral lands. Their 400 acre (1.6 km²) reservation is located on the New York/Connecticut border within the boundaries of Kent in Litchfield County, Connecticut running parallel with the Housatonic River. One of the oldest reservations in North America, reserve land was granted to the Schaghticoke in the year 1736 by the General Assembly of the Colony of Connecticut, 40 years prior to the formation of the United States. The language/ culture base is Algonquian with Iroquois influence. Tribe members trace their heritage to the first sachem, Gideon Mauwee, through his grandson Truman Bradley. Schaghticoke is pronounced /skæt.ə.kok/ .. ...
Freedom is an interesting thing. My ancestors came to North America with the pilgrims. They settled in what is now the state of New York. During the Revolutionary War, they chose to leave for Canada - settling around Toronto. Decades later, they returned, becoming part of the great Westward migration. Today, my son, and his wife live in Beijing teaching English. I am a resident of Mexico, living in Morelia. Freedom takes many forms and can play out in many ways in today's world. Happy July 4th.
The Oneida Nation of the Thames is an Onyota'a:ka (Oneida) First Nation located in southwestern Ontario on what is commonly referred to as the "Oneida Settlement", located about a 30-minute drive from London, Ontario, Canada. The Nation counts approximately 5,209 band members, of whom 2,030 live on reserve. • The Oneida Settlement The Oneidas, as an Iroquoian people, had a traditional territory that once covered a large section of the eastern part of North America. The territory of the Oneida Settlement is part of the traditional hunting area known as the Beaver Hunting Grounds, which was recognized in the 1701 Nanfan Treaty. The people who live there are descendants of much later migrants, a small group of assimilated/Christian Oneidas who relocated to Southwold, Ontario, Canada from New York State in the 1840s. The original settlers of the Oneida community were associated with two Christian denominations, Methodist and Anglican. One of the leaders in the migration was an ordained Methodist minister. S ...

It was a matter of chance that I should have rented a house in one of the strangest communities in North America. It was on that slender riotous island which extends itself due east of New York and where there are, among other natural curiosities, two unusual formations of land. Twenty miles from the city a pair of enormous eggs, identical in contour and separated only by a courtesy bay, jut out into the most domesticated body of salt water in the Western Hemisphere, the great wet barnyard of Long Island Sound. They are not perfect ovals—like the egg in the Columbus story they are both crushed flat at the contact end—but their physical resemblance must be a source of perpetual confusion to the gulls that fly overhead. To the wingless a more arresting phenomenon is their dissimilarity in every particular except shape and size. I lived at West Egg, the—well, the less fashionable of the two, though this is a most superficial tag to express the bizarre and not a little sinister contrast between them. My ...
Jet-setting General Overseer of the Redeem Christian church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye was on a whirlwind trip in North America.

The pastor then flew in his private jet to Canada. Several Nigerian priests fly around in expensive private jets in a nation where majority live on less than $2 a day.

Dear Bill: Our Congressman With Guts was back on national TV a few days ago, explaining exactly what is wrong with the Defense Department's domestic spying program. Here is how it went, on MSNBC: Martin Bashir: Joining us now is Democratic Congressman Alan Grayson of Florida . Congressman, if I might begin with you, [National Security Agency Director] General Alexander today revealed that this information helped prevent separate attacks on the New York subways and the New York Stock Exchange. Has what you've heard from him today, and what you heard the President say about these programs, has any of that assuaged some of your criticisms? Congressman Alan Grayson: No, it hasn't. What we're talking about specifically is the fact that the NSA is keeping a record of every single telephone call that you make, every single phone call that I make, every single phone call that every American makes. What he failed to do is to show that that kind of basically "Big Brother is watching you"-type surveillance is necess ...
THE ASATRU FOLK ASSEMBLY CELEBRATES MIDSUMMER - ALL OVER THE CONTINENT! This Midsummer has been an intense season for the AFA! From Alaska to Canada to New York, AFAers gathered to speed Sunna on her course and to renew their bonds of community. Sheila and I just got back from a very convivial and relaxing Midsummer in Tracy, California, just east of the Bay Area - but more on that wonderful event later!

APPARENTLY, GOD DIDN'T TELL NOAH ABOUT "LAURENTIDE". (Of the two posts I mentioned earlier, this is the first.) In approximately 6200 BC, the Laurentide Ice Shelf (LIS), in North America, collapsed for the final time. Close to two miles thick in areas (extending as far south as what we know today as Chicago and New York), this thing was MASSIVE. Upon its collapse, sea levels around the world rose anywhere from 7m to 13.1m. THAT'S HUGE. Now, remember that I mentioned that I'd finally found a tie between the source for the mythological legends of Noah's Flood and a climatological event, in a November 2007 article on ScienceDaily? Well, according to all available data, the collapse of the LIS resulted in three things: 1.) a massive rise in sea level (global, obviously), 2.) aridification of the near-and middle-east, and (MOST importantly) 3.) the Black Sea Infill. As the Black Sea was in the original (general) area of the alleged Garden of Eden, and close to the Ark's "final resting place" in the mounta ...
Broadcasting Africa's Positive Message to North America and the World by Jerry W. Bird We first met Ogo Sow during the ATA 25th Jubilee International Congress of the Africa Travel Association in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and have been pals ever since. As they say, "Birds of a feather flock together.” In any event, we later spent an enjoyable weekend as a foursome, with Ogo and our ATA photographer friend Robert Eilets in the Cape Town area a year later. It was a fun occasion, thanks to the banter between Ogo and the rest of us on any given topic. I remember arriving at the Kagga Kamma Game Preserve and mountain resort in the high country north of Cape Town. No sooner did we enter the lobby, than Ogo began looking for a radio feed to New York. A true professional, he was soon on a direct phone connection, beaming an interview with one of the area's guides (above). As we expected, the young man's knowledge of the tribal bushmen, their legends, rock paintings and way of life was unlimited. Ogo can spot a good ...
Adeboye inaugurates U.S. RCCG CAMP New York - Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has prayed for Christians in the North America to receive “double portion’’ in their growth and advancement. Adeboye, who spoke during the inauguration of the North American Redemption Camp in Greenville, Texas on Wednesday also prayed that they are accelerated to the glory of the Lord. Quoting from the Holy Bible, 2nd kings 2 verse 9, Adeboye said “we learn from this that we are not to be content with the accomplishments of those who have led and or are leading us. “No, we are expected to aim to achieve even more. This is very consistent with the admonition made to the disciples by the Lord Jesus Christ in John 14:12.’’ He also ordained Pastors, assistant Pastors, Deacons and Deaconesses and presented certificates to graduates of the RCCG North America seminary and Bible College.

It's a rainy day in New York, and London-born, Switzerland-based Phil Collins is making the most of his time stateside. The 59-year-old singer/songwriter/drummer has brought his two youngest sons with him for a summer vacation. They've visited the Alamo in San Antonio-collecting artifacts from the 1836 battle is Collins' abiding passion these days, a hobby he can clearly afford, having sold 11.2 million albums as a solo artist during the Nielsen SoundScan era alone, while Genesis has moved 9.3 million albums in the same period. But he also has a new record to promote: "Going Back," a collection of vintage soul covers, will be released on Atlantic Sept. 28 in North America and Sept. 14 in the rest of the world. It was recorded with musicians including three alumni of legendary Motown session players the Funk Brothers-and one of the music teachers from his 9-year-old son Nicholas' school. "I wanted to keep it a low-key, low-profile album," Collins says of the self-produced set. "I wanted it to b ...

Falling off the Fast Track is a diverting and salutary read about corporate skulduggery set in New York and other parts of North America. Samantha Susan Hudnutt likes men and men like her but experience has fortified an early cynicism about their motives in relationships. Recently released from a high powered, well-paid corporate position and ruined expectations of a continuing future with the company, Sam struggles to subsist on the erratic freelancing consultancies she is able to attract. Her life revolves around a nuisance and needy male friend, constant resort to her email inbox in the hope of work offers, her iPad, trusty Kindle, her spartan loft accommodation, and Patricia, a wealthy friend and sometime confidante.

New York had long been the landing point of seagoing Puerto Ricans, and the airborne newcomers followed suit. The new migrants settled in great numbers in Northeast Manhattan, in a neighborhood that soon became known as Spanish Harlem. Although many had been farm workers in Puerto Rico, they know found themselves working in a wide variety of jobs, staffing the hospitals, the hotels, the garment factories, and the police departments of their new hometown, and they soon became a significant force in the city’s political and cultural life. Civil rights demonstration, 1967. The migration to the 50 states slowed in the 1960s and 70s, as an urban recession led to fewer jobs in U.S. cities, and many of the first generation returned to Puerto Rico. At the same time, many migrants struggled with poverty, unemployment, and racial discrimination in their new home. Darker-skinned Puerto Ricans often found themselves excluded from jobs, education, and housing, and were frequently attacked by non-Puerto Rican street ...

Part 1: Coming To America The first colonies in North America were along the eastern coast. Settlers from Spain, France, Sweden, Holland, and England claimed land beginning in the 17th century. The struggle for control of this land would continue for more than a hundred years. The first permanent settlement in North America was the English colony at Jamestown, in 1607, in what is now Virginia. John Smith and company had come to stay. The Pilgrims followed, in 1620, and set up a colony at Plymouth, in what is now Massachusetts. Other English colonies sprang up all along the Atlantic coast, from Maine in the north to Georgia in the south. Swedish and Dutch colonies took shape in and around what is now New York. As more and more people arrived in the New World, more and more disputes arose over territory. Many wars were fought in the 1600s and 1700s. Soon, the two countries with the largest presence were England and France. The two nations fought for control of North America in what Americans call the French ...
While cities in emerging markets are becoming more competitive on a global scale, New York will remain the most competitive city in 2025. That’s the result of a new report, “Hot spots 2025: Benchmarking the future competitiveness of cities,” from the Economist Intelligence Unit commissioned by Citi. “Despite concerns over aging populations and infrastructure, indebtedness and slow growth,” the report says, cities in North America and Europe are forecast to keep their competitive edge on the rest of the world. So how does EIU determine a competitive city? They measure competitiveness based on 32 indicators in these eight categories: economic strength, physical capital, financial maturity, institution character, human capital, global appeal, social and cultural character, and environment and natural hazards. Here’s how the report ranks the top 20 cities out of the 120 cities the report studied: ~lp~

Nature's Gift - The Waterfall - The Most Amazing - List 25 to 21 There are few things more awe inspiring than watching millions of gallons of water plummet thousands of feet down to the Earth. Of course, while you are probably familiar with some of the waterfalls on this list others have only been discovered within the past few years. Each with its own unique features, these are 25 of the world’s most amazing waterfalls. 25. Niagra Falls We’ll start off with the familiar as most of you have probably at least heard of the Niagra Falls. Found near New York on the border of the United States and Canada, they are the most powerful water cascade in North America with. Although people often argue which country has the better view, the truth is that it’s neither. The best view is from the water. Just make sure to bring your poncho. 24. Alamere Falls t’s not too often that you get to see waterfalls cascading directly down into the ocean, but the picturesque Alamere Falls in California empties right into t ...

One hundred years ago on this day, June 4, 1913, my father age 17 and his 10 year old sister arrived at Ellis Island, New York aboard the Barbarossa. His family of 10 (parents and 8 children) travelled from South Russia (Ukraine) to the port of Bremen, Germany. They were all booked to come to North America a month earlier aboard the Neckar a month earlier which arrived on May 5, however his sister was ill and they wouldn't let her board. The two of them had to stay behind until she was well enough to travel and wait for room on another ship. After arriving, they made their way across the US and Canada to a cousins home in Rosthern, Sask. Thanks Dad, it must have been hard, but not tragic as it would have been if you had stayed is South Russia.
Here is a little coffee fact that will make you feel a bit smarter...In the mid-1600's, coffee was brought to New Amsterdam, a location later called New York by the British. Though coffee houses rapidly began to appear, tea continued to be the favored drink in the New World until 1773 when the colonists revolted against a heavy tax on tea imposed by King George. The revolt, known as the Boston Tea Party, would forever change the American drinking preference to coffee. When coffee reached North America during the Colonial period, it was initially not as successful as it had been in Europe. During the Revolutionary War, however, the demand for coffee increased so much that dealers had to hoard their scarce supplies and raise prices dramatically; this was also due to the reduced availability of tea from British merchants. After the War of 1812, during which Britain temporarily cut off access to tea imports, the Americans' taste for coffee grew,and high demand during the American Civil War together with advan ...
Alaska visit on a Princess Cruise by Teresa and Robert Cochran My father had fostered my love of wildlife and wilderness during my childhood in Saranac Lake , New York (The Adirondack Mountains in Upstate New York), and I expected that Alaska would hold an abundance of both. Well, I was right. June 2013 we checked Alaska off our bucket list and cruised from Vancouver to Whittier. The untouched, spectacular beauty of Alaska deeply impressed me. Mt. McKinley, the tallest mountain in North America is this great 20,320-foot mountain, the centerpiece of Denali National Park and Preserve. The mountain was named after President William McKinley in 1897, but most locals refer to it by its native Athabaskan name: Denali, meaning “the high one.” In 1913, a four-man team led by Harry Karstens (who later became the park’s first superintendent) reached the summit of Denali. Harry’s team included Walter Harper, an Alaskan native, and he was the first man to set foot on the summit. Since then, more than ...
People assume cultural power in North America flows outwards from New York and LA. The still developing wave of secularisation shows the reverse trend. Leaping from post-War France to Quebec, the old Catholic Nation of Duplessis was ripped apart in a decade, before sweeping most of Anglo-Canada in a generation, and now spreading rapidly into the parts of the US where Canadian culture has real influence, like the Upper Northeast and Upper Midwest - places where people regularly border jump for cheaper healthcare, amongst other things. There is another wave of secularisation which originated in California, and the two currents meet in the United States' most secularised region, the Pacific Northwest. The United States of Canada's Pacific Coast, where cities like Seattle and Portland were already built immigrants who moved straight from turn of the Century Protestant Northern Europe, already secularised. Working-class boys from Barnsley or Kiel who had no real attachment to any Church and didn't carry what l ...
May 31, 2013 Dollar climbs on most currencies, drops vs. yen The U.S. dollar climbed against most currencies on Friday as Wall Street headed for a volatile month-end finish but lost ground versus the yen, shrugging off the International Monetary Fund’s backing for Japan’s monetary stimulus. The ICE dollar index, which measures the greenback against six major global currencies, climbed to 83.143 in early U.S. trading, up from 83.022 in North America late on Thursday. The advance adds to the gains recorded earlier this month, as rising U.S. Treasury yields and improving economic data increasingly drew investors to the greenback. The ICE dollar index is on track to rise more than 1.7% in May. The WSJ dollar index, a gauge that tracks the currency against a slightly larger basket of rival units, rose to 74.93 from Thursday’s close at 74.75. “The U.S. dollar has entered a new phase, in which better U.S. data mean stronger U.S. dollar and vice versa,” analysts at RBC Capital Markets wrote in a note to ...

The American Mafia (or simply the Mafia or Mob in the United States), is an Italian-American criminal society. Similar to the Sicilian Mafia, the American Mafia is a secret criminal society without a formal name. Its members usually refer to it as Cosa Nostra (Italian pronunciation: [kɔza nɔstra], Italian for "our thing"). The press has also coined the name "National Crime Syndicate" to refer to the entirety of U.S. organized crime, including the Mafia. The Mafia emerged in New York's Lower East Side, other areas of the East Coast of the United States, and several other major metropolitan areas (such as New Orleans[1]) during the late 19th century following waves of Italian immigration, especially from Sicily. It has its roots in the Sicilian Mafia, but is a separate organization in the United States. Neapolitan, Calabrian, and other Italian criminal groups, as well as independent Italian-American criminals, eventually merged with the Sicilians to create the modern pan-Italian Mafia in North America. To ...
Wyandot people Wendat-Huron Wyandot Nation. The Wyandot people or Wendat, also called Huron, are Indigenous Peoples of North America. They traditionally spoke Wendat. The pre-contact people formed by the 15th century in the area of the north shore of present-day Lake Ontario, before migrating to Georgian Bay. It was in their later location that they first encountered the French explorer Samuel de Champlain in 1615. The modern Wyandot emerged in the late 17th century from the remnants of two earlier groups, the Wendat or Huron Confederacy and the Tionontate, called the Petun (tobacco people) by the French because of their cultivation of the crop. They were located in the southern part of what is now the Canadian province of Ontario around Georgian Bay. Drastically reduced in number by epidemic diseases after 1634, they were dispersed by war in 1649 from the Iroquois, the Haudenosaunee, then based in New York. today the Wyandot have a reserve in Quebec, Canada. In addition, they have three major settlements ...
"Pinkster" celebrations mark both the oppression of slavery in New York and the ultimate triumph over it. These Pinkster celebrations and events in North America, combining some of the most vibrant elements from over a hundred years of Hudson Valley Pinkster. From the Dutch tradition come children’s games like ninepins and stilts, special baked goods of the holiday, egg-dyeing, and European-style country dancing. From the African tradition come storytelling, drumming, dance, a grand parade, and the election of a Pinkster King. Dutch’s version of "Pentecost Day" is "Pinksterdag" on seventh Sunday after Easter; commemorating the emanation of the Holy Spirit to the Apostles. In Holland, 1st Pinksterdagen is Sunday, May 19 and Monday, May 20 is the 2nd day. Slavery in the Hudson River Valley in the South, most  landowners had one to five slaves (although a few had as many as 40). As a result, there were no large communities of Africans; blacks were mostly integrated into the White Households, living in t ...

From Aaron Rand. According to countless polls, the majority of Quebecers don't believe the French language is threatened or under attack. What the majority of Quebecers do believe, is that the economic morass this province finds itself in, and the lack of a vision for getting us out of it, will continue to drive existing businesses away, and convince new businesses to go elsewhere. This past week a report showed Toronto has surpassed Chicago in population, to become it the fourth-largest city in North America, behind Mexico City, New York, and Los Angeles. Here's what their mayor had to say. “Toronto is a desirable location for people to live and work. We are attracting people from across North America and other parts of the world.” When was the last time we could say that about Montreal, and more importantly, will we ever be able to say it again ?
NEWS! Buna ziua dragi copii! 11.03.2013 – Schita MIX – Tematica schitei – “Downtown”. Pe parcurs a 2 perechi universitare , ve-ti realiza o compozitie linear frontala, a unui Downtown: Def. Downtown is a term primarily used in North America by English speakers to refer to a city's core (or center) or central business district (usually in a geographical, commercial, and community sense). The term is thought to have been coined in New York City, where it was in use by the 1830s to refer to the original town at the southern tip of the island of Manhattan. As the town of New York grew into a city, the only direction it could grow on the island was toward the north, proceeding upriver from the original settlement (the "up" and "down" terminology in turn came from the customary map design in which up was north and down was south). Thus, anything north of the original town became known as "uptown" (Upper Manhattan), while the original town (which was also New York's only major center of business at the ...
1909 was a year of many “firsts.” U.S. Navy engineer Robert E. Peary became the first man to reach the North Pole. The first transcontinental auto race took place between New York and Seattle, and up in the sky, French engineer Louis Bleriot made the first English Channel crossing in a heavier-than-air machine. The United States Mint was preparing a first of its own: a regular-issue U.S. coin honoring an actual person. Defying a tradition that dated back to George Washington’s presidency, plans were made to honor the 100th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth with a new cent featuring a bust of the beloved president. For more than a century, federal officials had followed George Washington’s lead and avoided the depiction of presidents, past or present —or any other recognizable individuals—on the nation’s circulating coinage. Thus, when the notion of a Lincoln coin arose, it encountered real resistance from traditionalists. Skeptics and critics were no match, however, for President Theo ...

Boutique hotel is a term popularized in North America and the United Kingdom to describe hotels which often contain luxury facilities of varying size in unique or intimate settings with full service accommodations. Boutique hotels began appearing in the 1980s in major cities like London, New York, and San Francisco.[1] Typically boutique hotels are furnished in a themed, stylish and/or aspirational manner. Boutique hotels are often individual and focused on offering their services in a comfortable, intimate, and welcoming setting, so they are very unlikely to be found amongst the homogeneity of large hotel. Guest rooms and suites may be fitted with telephone and Wi-Fi Internet, air-conditioning, honesty bars and often cable/pay TV but sometimes none of these, focusing on quiet and comfort rather than gadgetry. Guest services are often attended to by 24 h hotel staff. Many boutique hotels have on-site dining facilities, and the majority offer bars and lounges that may also be open to the general public.[2] ...

Nine guests this week, their origins a smattering of locations throughout North America. Sara and Kathleen are from the right side of the continent (New York and Maryland respectively) Patti and Dave from the Bay Area, Christine and Chip from Park City Utah (who lives in Park City? -must be nice) Lisa from North Carolina, our token canuck Chris from B.C, and finally, world traveler Del, currently residing in Thailand and who celebrated his 41st!

The cities that people like and enjoy visiting, and the places people find unpleasant tell me a lot about my friends--do I really want to risk travelling with them or not? I am one of those 19th century types who like "walkable cities." Savannah, New Orleans, Rome, London, San Francisco [above all], and to some degree New York and Montreal. The places I find unpleasant are: Dallas [loud, rich, shopping malls, not for me] Houston [ditto. ], "Vegas" [never been there, never will go there], Los Angeles [only with a native who can show me around], Memphis [bland; trying hard to be Dallas but never making it], and Atlanta [the most over-rated metropolis in North America. like Charleston, full of ego, but totally lacking in warmth. Underground Atlanta awoke only one feeling in me: 'WHY?"
WHEN EUROPEAN COLONISTS sailed to North America, the Brotherhood organizations sailed with them. In 1694, a group of Rosicrucian leaders from Europe founded a colony in what is today the state of Pennsylvania. Some of their picturesque buildings in Ephrata still stand as a unique tourist attraction. Freemasonry followed. On June 5, 1730, the Duke of Norfolk granted to Daniel Coxe of New Jersey one of the earliest known Masonic deputations to reach the American colonies. The deputation appointed Mr. Coxe provisional Grand Master of New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. It also allowed him to establish lodges. One of the earliest official colonial lodges was founded by Henry Price in Boston on August 31, 1733 under a charter from the Mother Grand Lodge of England. Masonic historian Albert MacKey believes that lodges probably existed earlier, but that their records have been lost. Freemasonry spread rapidly in the American colonies just as it had done in Europe. The early lodges in the British ...

On This Day In History. On this day in 1752, future Patriot Gouverneur Morris is born to the wealthy Morris family of New York. Gouverneur Morris began his political activities in support of the Patriot cause as a representative to New York's Provincial Congress beginning in 1775, seven years after his graduation from King's College (now Columbia University). An early supporter of independence, Morris began to shape the new national government in 1781, when he assumed the post of assistant superintendent of finance for the Confederation. In that capacity, Morris worked with Superintendent Robert Morris (no relation) to urge an expansion of federal powers and proposed that the new nation adopt a new decimal currency modeled on the Spanish dollar. The two men urged Congress to create the Bank of North America, which would allow them to issue new money. Morris' passion for a strong federal government found frequent voice during the Constitutional Convention of 1787, at which he represented Pennsylvania. Morr ...
I read a total running nerd book last summer called Indian Running, by Peter Nabokov.  It's an old book from 1980 and was part of Nabokov's doctoral dissertation (he is an anthropology prof at UCLA).   Nabokov documents the history and tradition of distance running among Native American tribes throughout North America.  Early American settlers, war generals, and native people recount stories of "messengers" within most Native American tribes, whose only tribal role was to deliver messages as fast as possible.     Native runners often took vows of celibacy and honesty and would abstain from certain foods so that they could devote their entire life to running fast and far.  They were elevated to the level of a "foreign diplomat" - almost as important as the chief.  They were honest, noble, and FAST.   One account from a Revolutionary War commander recounts the story of how he hired an Iroquois runner to deliver a message to a fort 60 miles away through the wooded, rocky hills of New York State.  Th ...

TODAY IN OUR HISTORY: Washington orders General Lee to New Jersey n what proved a fateful decision on this day in 1776, Continental Commander in Chief General George Washington writes to General Charles Lee in Westchester County, New York, to report the loss of Fort Lee, New Jersey, and to order Lee to bring his forces to New Jersey. Lee wanted to stay in New York, so he dawdled in departing and crossing the small state of New Jersey to the Delaware River, where Washington impatiently awaited the arrival of his reinforcements. Lee, who took a commission in the British Army upon finishing military school at age 12 and served in North America during the Seven Years' War, felt slighted that the less experienced Washington had been given command of the Continental Army and showed no inclination to rush. Famed for his temper and intemperance, the Mohawk had dubbed Lee "Boiling Water." Lee was an adopted tribesman through his marriage to a Mohawk woman, but his union apparently failed to quell his interest in p ...

Receiving this email, my gut reaction was why in my country, one of the largest democracies, progeny of political elite never participates in such intellectual pursuits.What is reflected from political heirs is not intellectual curiosity but arrogance and hubris: A few weeks ago, New York City--along with a long swath of North America's Atlantic coast and several Carribean islands--was battered...by Superstorm Sandy, a weather system that caused unprecedented damage to hundreds of communities. The Institute for Public Knowledge is organizing a Public Forum at NYU to think broadly about this storm, climate change, and the city of New York. How do we prepare for a future with more frequent and violent storms? What are the roles for government agencies, private organizations, and individual citizens in emergency preparedness? What are the public health implications--both long-term and short? Does New York need a massive design intervention, or some new housing codes? When we rebuild, where should we rebuild- ...

Finally the Media is waking up. I state again: The next step in human evolution is for us to survive the upcoming climate change. "The storm fits the general pattern in North America, and indeed around the world, toward more extreme weather, a pattern that, increasingly, can be attributed to climate change. Explains meteorologist Greg Holland of the National Center for Atmospheric Research: “I have no equivocation in saying that all heavy rainfall events, including this one, have an element of climate change in them, and the level of that contribution will increase in the future.” “Folks, second year in a row the New York metro area has been [hit] by this stuff,” said [Chuck] Todd, NBC News’s Chief White House Correspondent and host of “The Daily Rundown” on MSNBC. “Let’s not bury our heads in the sand when it comes to something has changed in the Atlantic.

How the "VAN VOORHEES" Family Helped to "Shape" The Early Formation of our USA: The Origins of Columbus & Sebring, Ohio; and of Sebring, Florida & Van Nuys, California! In response to a genealogy client's request, I recently researched the "Van Voorhees" Family History. They are THE Largest Dutch Family in North America, they were among the earliest settlers of Flatlands & Flatbush, Brooklyn, New York, in 1660 A.D. A descendant of this family, Isaiah "Vorys", a Revolutionary War Veteran from New Jersey, moved to Franklin County, Ohio in 1805 and in 1812, he assisted in designing the first street locations and plats for Columbus, Ohio. When it became incorporated as a City in 1816, Isaiah was granted a license to open his "White Horse Tavern" on South High Street. His Tavern earned such a good reputation throughout Ohio that he enticed noteworthy politicians and military people to stay there when visiting Columbus. Isaiah Vorys (1750-1834) is this Genealogy Researcher's ancestral grandfather. The Van Voorh ...
