New York. - The Empire State. - 1 / 3 - (767 links).

New York is a state in the northeastern United States. New York was one of the original thirteen colonies that formed the United States. With an estimated 19.8 million residents in 2015, it is the fourth most populous state in the United States. To differentiate from its city with the same name, it is sometimes called New York State. The state's largest city, New York City, makes up over 40% of the state's population. Two-thirds of the state's population lives in the New York metropolitan area, and nearly 40% lives on Long Island. The state and city were both named for the 17th-century Duke of York, future King James II of England. With an estimated population of 8.55 million in 2015, New York City is the most populous city in the United States and the premier gateway for legal immigration to the United States. The New York Metropolitan Area is one of the most populous urban agglomerations in the world. New York City is a global city, home to the United Nations Headquarters and has been described as the cultural, financial, and media capital of the world, as well as the world's most economically powerful city. The next four most populous cities in the state are Buffalo, Rochester, Yonkers, and Syracuse, while the state capital is Albany. New York has a diverse geography. The state is bordered by New Jersey and Pennsylvania to the south and Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont to the east. The state has a maritime border in the Atlantic Ocean with Rhode Island, east of Long Island, as well as an international border with the Canadian provinces of Quebec to the north and Ontario to the northwest. The southern part of the state consists of Long Island and several smaller associated islands, as well as New York City and the lower Hudson River Valley, most of which lie within the wider Atlantic Coastal Plain. The large region known as Upstate New York consists of several ranges of the wider Appalachian Mountains, including the Allegheny Plateau and Catskills along New York's Southern Tier, and the Adirondack Mountains in the Northeastern lobe of the state. These more mountainous regions are bisected by two major river valleys—the north-south Hudson River Valley and the east-west Mohawk River Valley, which forms the core of the Erie Canal. Western New York is considered part of the Great Lakes Region and straddles Lake Ontario and Lake Erie. Between the two lakes lies Niagara Falls. The central part of the state is dominated by the Finger Lakes, a popular vacation and tourist destination. New York had been inhabited by tribes of Algonquian and Iroquoian-speaking Native Americans for several hundred years by the time the earliest Europeans came to New York. French colonists and Jesuit missionaries arrived southward from Montreal for trade and proselytizing. In 1609, the region was visited by Henry Hudson sailing for the Dutch East India Company. The Dutch built Fort Nassau in 1614 at the confluence of the Hudson and Mohawk rivers, where the present-day capital of Albany later developed. The Dutch soon also settled New Amsterdam and parts of the Hudson Valley, establishing the multicultural colony of New Netherland, a center of trade and immigration. England seized the colony from the Dutch in 1664. During the American Revolutionary War (1775–1783), a group of colonists of the Province of New York attempted to take control of the British colony and eventually succeeded in establishing independence. Many landmarks in New York are well known, including four of the world's ten most-visited tourist attractions in 2013: Times Square, Central Park, Niagara Falls (shared with Ontario), and Grand Central Terminal. New York is home to the Statue of Liberty, a symbol of the United States and its ideals of freedom, democracy, and opportunity. In the 21st century, New York has emerged as a global node of creativity and entrepreneurship, social tolerance, and environmental sustainability. New York's higher education network comprises approximately 200 colleges and universities, including Columbia University, Cornell University, New York University, and Rockefeller University, which have been ranked among the top 35 in the world.

    08/11/2017 Caryn Rose began her writing career in 1980, when she tried to convince her high school newspaper editor to run an article she’d written defending punk rock. This would inspire her to take matters into her own hands during the 80’s DIY publishing revolution. The Who fanzine she helped initiate, The Relay, was chosen by the band to be included in their exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and she also created the first R.E.M. fanzine, Radio Free Europe. 10/01/2018 09/02/2017 15 Minute Lunch Don't expect too much. 26/02/2017 The Association of Art Museum Directors advances the profession by cultivating leadership capabilities of directors, advocating for the field, and fostering excellence in art museums. An agile, issues-driven organization, AAMD has three desired outcomes: engagement, leadership, and shared learning. In 1916 the directors of twelve American museums founded the Association of Art Museum Directors. The Association began its transformation into a professional organization in 1969 when it formally incorporated. At that time the Association also hired an employee, and increased its meetings from once to twice a year. 26/02/2017 The Registry of New Acquisitions of Archaeological Material and Works of Ancient Art provides information on acquisitions of select works of archeological and ancient art by AAMD member museums since June 4, 2008, the date new AAMD Guidelines went into effect. These works are only those lacking complete provenance after November 1970, the date of the UNESCO Convention on the Means of Prohibiting and Preventing the Illicit Import and Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural Property. 26/02/2017 The Registry of Resolution of Claims for Nazi-Era Cultural Assets provides information on the resolution of formal claims made to AAMD member museums regarding works of art believed to have been stolen by the Nazis between 1933-1945. The information in the registry has been provided by AAMD’s members in furtherance of the Report of the AAMD Task Force on the Spoliation of Art during the Nazi/World War II Era (1933-1945). The registry lists objects restituted and settlements made since June 4, 1998, the date the report was adopted. 19/04/2017 19/04/2017 20/03/2017 20/03/2017 20/03/2017 20/03/2017 20/03/2017 20/03/2017 20/03/2017 04/09/2017 The Canterbury Tales.

Updated Sept. 26, 2012. In World War Two, airplanes of all types - fighters, bombers, transports, etc. - developed rapidly. Biplanes saw action in the early years; jet aircraft zoomed through the skies over Germany in 1945. The Americans produced the "mostest of the bestest," that is, the largest numbers of generally superior warplanes. While I started this site with a focus on WW2 fighters and aces, my interests have spread out - to include the First World War, the Golden Age of Aviation between the wars, and even some post-war jet airplanes. While there is concentration of military aircraft, I also profile some civil airplanes. 26/10/2017 WW2 Nose Art. Aircraft Pinups and Decorations. By Stephen Sherman, Aug. 2002. Updated Sept. 26, 2012. Aircrews in World War II decorated their planes with pictures of pinups and pretty girls, typically modeled after the "cheesecake" art of Gil Elvgren, Alberto Vargo, and George Petty. It was (and still is) an interesting practice. Some see a deep, psychological impulse - attaching a talisman, a good-luck charm, to the aircraft as a way of warding off evil, death, and bullets. I don't know. Maybe the young guys just liked looking at pictures of pin-ups. Different services and units had different policies about aircraft usage and decoration. Marine and Navy aircraft were generally shared by different pilots, with consequently less personalized decoration. Army Air Force airplanes were assigned to individual pilots (or in the case of bombers, to particular air crews). Thus, some of the most lavish and imaginative nose art adorned USAAF planes. 26/10/2017 U.S. Navy Aces of WW2. F4F Wildcat and F6F Hellcat Pilots. By Stephen Sherman, June, 1999. Updated December 14, 2016. The Navy's fighter pilots fought the entire war in the Pacific, from Pearl Harbor to the Home Islands. In 1942, flying F4F Wildcats, the Navy fighter pilots barely held their own against the Japanese Zeros. A handful of heroes like O'Hare, McCuskey, and Vejtasa scored some notable successes. The Navy contributed fighting squadrons to the Guadalcanal campaign, but did not achieve big results until late 1943, when the F4U Corsairs and F6F Hellcats arrived. The Hellcats in particular, operating from the simultaneously-arriving Essex-class carriers, began to decimate the outclassed Japanese fliers. From the Gilberts, up through the Marshalls and the Marianas, the carrier-based Hellcats swept the skies. (One notable unit, VF-17, the Jolly Rogers, under its CO, Tommy Blackburn, flew F4U Corsairs from land bases in the Solomons. I've included its fascinating story.) 26/10/2017 Legendary Aviators and Aircraft of World War One. By Stephen Sherman, Aug. 2001. Updated July 8, 2013. They fought in canvas and wood biplanes that could barely fly 100 MPH. Men like von Richthofen, Rickenbacker, Bishop, Guynemer, Mannock, Ball, who flew airplanes with names like Spad, Fokker, Albatros, Nieuport, and Sopwith Camel. High above the trenches they fought heroic battles with these primitive weapons. In this era, the top speeds were about 100 MPH. When the pilots ventured ten miles over the enemy lines, that was a notable event. The pilots carried no parachutes. The airplanes were made of wood and canvas; when they caught on fire, it spread quickly, and spelled certain death for the occupants. The press and public, desperate for propaganda heroes amongst the waste and useless battles of the trenches, idolized the young heroes. 26/10/2017 The Hall of Fame of the Air. An illustrated newspaper feature from 1935 - 1940. By Stephen Sherman, Mar. 2007. Updated April 11, 2012. Up in my father's garage attic, along with unopened lawn mowers and fireplace andirons, we came across these cartoons he had saved for six decades --- the "Hall of Fame of the Air" (HFA). Every Sunday in the late 1930's, newspapers ran this cartoon feature, depicting the feats of legendary aces and early aviators. Next to each pilot, an airplane associated with him was shown. Well-known American aviation artist Clayon Knight (1891 - 1969) created HFA. He was also the father of Hilary Knight, author of "Eloise," the little girl who lived in New York's Plaza Hotel. Clayton Knight had served with a British fighter squadron in WWI. His artwork from the Depression era and World War Two typified the iconic, heroic art of the period, used in propaganda posters. In WWII, along with Billy Bishop, he helped to organize the Eagle Squadrons, volunteer American fighter pilots who flew with the RAF before Pearl Harbor. 05/03/2017 07/04/2016 Afghanistan’s legacy of publishing is in clear danger of disappearing. The earliest publications appearing in Afghanistan are extremely rare and, judging by their absence from library collections around the world, are to be found now almost exclusively in private collections, where public access is limited or non-existent. Decades of war in Afghanistan have further dispersed and destroyed holdings of books within the country itself. The immediate objective of the Afghanistan Digital Library is to retrieve and restore the first sixty years of Afghanistan’s published cultural heritage. The Afghanistan Digital Library is a project of New York University Libraries with the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities, The Reed Foundation, and the W.L.S. Spencer Foundation. 10/11/2017 05/12/2017 26/10/2017 The Center for American Studies offers students the opportunity to explore the experiences and values of the people of the United States as embodied in their history, literature, politics, art, and other enduring forms of cultural expression. American Studies takes advantage of our location in New York by involving students with the life of the city, working with community service organizations such as the Roger Lehecka Double Discovery Center, and by inviting leading figures on the New York political and cultural scene to participate in colloquia, public conferences, and classroom activities. The center seeks to prepare students to confront with historical awareness the pressing problems that face our society. Our alumni have pursued careers in teaching, journalism, law, the arts, museum fields, and other professions. 22/01/2018 Documentos, fotografías y publicaciones de la vida cultural y universitaria de la Habana en la década de 1960 y algo de la década de 1970. 11/02/2018 Art Attack is a collective which was founded in 1979 in Los Angeles, California, as a guerilla art group. The group moved to Washington, D.C., in 1981 and subsequently to New York City. Throughout this timeframe the group's evolution led to a structured format and it is now incorporated as a not-for-profit organization. In its infancy, our group dynamic bordered on anarchy; participation by an individual was capricious and sporadic. As the group matured, a core group was formed by a few dedicated members to manage the technical tasks required for stability. Art Attack maintains a formal pool of associates who participate on a project-by-project basis. 31/05/2017 Barnard Art History Department, which is devoted to the study of all the visual arts, is one of the broadest fields in the humanities. It is concerned not only with the nature of works of art -- their form, style, and content, but also with the social, political, and cultural circumstances that shape them. Introductory level courses encourage a basic and lifelong understanding and appreciation of works of art. The rest of the curriculum offers a more advanced and specialized knowledge of art, which can lead to many kinds of careers, including teaching, museum administration and curating, business positions in galleries or auction houses, publishing, criticism, collection advising, and conservation, as well as creative careers in any medium. Students in many fields may also find that art history is relevant to their studies. 13/03/2018 15/05/2016 30/01/2018 26/10/2017 The Department of Biological Sciences was formed in 1966 through the merger of two previous departments, Zoology and Botany. The Zoology Department had a very distinguished history. Thomas Hunt Morgan, Edmund Beecher Wilson, and Theodosius Dobzhansky, extraordinary pioneers in genetics, cell biology, and developmental biology, respectively, were leading faculty who did their seminal work at Columbia from the 1900s to the 1940s. Cyrus Levinthal was recruited from MIT in 1968 with a mission to further build up biology at Columbia. The initial focus for the Department was on molecular biology and neurobiology, two areas that remain at the forefront of modern biology. The Department expanded into additional research areas over the past two decades, such as developmental biology, cell biology, structural biology, biophysics, chemical biology, and computational biology. 29/03/2016 >>>> About Home >>>> Birding / Wild Birds. 30/03/2016 BIRDINGDUDE. Field Ornithologist with an IT Background. My interest in birds took on a whole new level after building a backyard habitat for birds and butterflies--a project that is still ongoing. Additionally, I am interested in Entomology, Herpetology and Botany. I do volunteer work with a number of organizations including the NY Audubon, NYC Audubon Society, the American Littoral Society NE Chapter, National Park Service, Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge and American Museum of Natural History. 17/07/2017 Birds of North America (BNA) is the most comprehensive reference for the life histories of over 760 bird species that breed in the United States and Canada. Species accounts are written by ornithologists and other experts and are an essential reference for anyone with an advanced interest in birds. BNA accounts have always offered an in-depth, authoritative summary of scientific literature and media. However, in combination with the Macaulay Library and eBird, our restructured species accounts are now accompanied by new sounds, images, and video, and distributional maps and model output generated by eBird. 27/10/2017 Piping Plover. Charadrius melodus. Order: CHARADRIIFORMES. Family: CHARADRIIDAE. The Piping Plover is a threatened and endangered shorebird that inhabits wide, open beaches, alkali flats, and sandflats of North America. It breeds primarily along the Atlantic coast from North Carolina to eastern Canada and the French Islands of Saint Pierre and Miquelon, inland along rivers and wetlands of the northern Great Plains from Nebraska to the southern Prairie Provinces, and along portions of the western Great Lakes in the U.S. and western Ontario. In winter, most individuals are found on coastal beaches, sandflats, and mudflats from the Carolinas to Yucatan; some scatter through the Bahamas and West Indies. 27/10/2017 Smith's Longspur. Calcarius pictus. Order: PASSERIFORMES. Family: CALCARIIDAE. Smith's Longspurs have one of the most unusual social breeding systems known among songbirds. Unlike the majority of birds that form socially monogamous relationships for breeding, Smith's Longspurs are polygynandrous—each female pairs and copulates with two or three males for a single clutch of eggs, at the same time that each male pairs and copulates with two or more females. Males do not defend territories, but instead guard females by following them closely and compete for fertilizations by copulating frequently in order to dilute or displace sperm from other males. 12/03/2018 Gray Jay. Perisoreus canadensis. Order: PASSERIFORMES. Family: CORVIDAE. Authors: Strickland, Dan and Henri R. Ouellet. Revisors: Strickland, Dan. Published: May 27, 2011. The Gray Jay is a widespread resident of North America's boreal and sub-alpine coniferous forests. Occupation of permanent all-purpose territories in such climatically hostile biomes is made possible by this bird's scatter-hoarding and recovery of seemingly perishable food items fastened in trees under bark scales and lichens with the assistance of copious sticky saliva from enlarged salivary glands. 07/02/2017 Snow Goose. Chen caerulescens. Order: ANSERIFORMES. Family: ANATIDAE. Your first indication of their presence is the distant sound of baying hounds. As you look up, you see the sky flecked with tiny white moving shapes, which appear like snowflakes drifting lazily across the azure sky. This spectacle of Snow Geese in their large, high-flying migratory flocks described by the naturalist J. B. Grinnell is an ethereal one, the only one that many observers have of this species. Yet, this medium-sized goose is one of the most abundant species of waterfowl in the world, breeding in large, often dense colonies north of the tree line from extreme northeastern Russia (Wrangel Island), along the coast and islands of arctic and subarctic North America to northwestern Greenland. Birds of North America Online. The CornellLab of Ornithology. Cornell University. 07/02/2017 Redhead. Aythya americana. Order: ANSERIFORMES. Family: ANATIDAE. This diving duck, restricted to North America, breeds widely throughout the Prairie Pothole Region of the United States and Canada. It also nests in dense concentrations in marshes of the western United States. In contrast to its extensive breeding distribution, the Redhead in winter is concentrated mostly in coastal areas along the Gulf of Mexico, with hundreds of thousands of birds traditionally found in the Laguna Madre of Texas and the Laguna Madre of Tamaulipas, Mexico. The Redhead begins arriving in its winter range in October. Birds of North America Online. The CornellLab of Ornithology.

Founded in 1972 and located in New York City, it is dedicated to providing information about contemporary Cuba and contributing to a normalization of relations between Cuba and the United States, including an end to the embargo. The Cuban Art Space is incorporated within the Center for Cuban Studies to promote the work of Cuban artists, especially those living and working in Cuba, and to educate the U.S. public about Cuba’s cultural life. 09/10/2017 I am Thomas Andrew, aka “Chef Tom” of New York. As far back as I can remember I have always enjoyed cooking and I loved the internet. As a child, my grandmother would teach me how to recreate many of our families famous recipes that have been passed down from generation to generation. It was not until my high school years that I realized cooking could be my future. I got a summer job as a dishwasher at a popular restaurant in St. Augustine, Florida. My intense work ethic allowed me to be promoted quickly. Within months I was able to work in all parts of the kitchen. I enjoyed the hard work and the gratification I received from all the happy customers. Two years later I moved to NY and was hired to be head chef at a local Italian restaurant. 26/10/2017 Welcome to the Department of Chemistry at Columbia University, one of the premier institutions for academic chemical research. Our Department is home to internationally renowned faculty, a top-ranked graduate program, and state-of-the-art research facilities. We prize science that is both collaborative and interdisciplinary as well as excellence teaching and research from both our faculty and our graduate students. The development of chemistry in the United States is tied closely to the development of chemistry at Columbia University. The modern chemistry department at Columbia was founded in 1864 with Charles Fredrick Chandler at its helm. The photograph at the left, taken in the late 19th century, shows Chandler, (4th from the left), and some of the first chemistry graduate students at Columbia. Since the department’s founding more than 150 years ago, Columbia chemistry faculty have produced breakthroughs in research, trained many of the leading chemists in the country, and led the growth of chemistry as both an academic discipline and a profession. 26/10/2017 The Chandler Society for Undergraduate Chemistry is a club run by undergraduates for the purpose of promoting enjoyment and knowledge of science, particularly chemistry. The club is involved in a variety of activities, from performing scientific demonstrations for young students and organizing informal and formal talks with professors to making liquid nitrogen ice cream for the Columbia student body during Glass House Rocks. Every year, we try to expand our scope of activities, so we’re always happy to have new members with fresh ideas and an interest in science! 13/01/2018 18/09/2017 08/12/2017 Center for International History. Department of History, Columbia University, New York. The Center for International History is housed within the Department of History at Columbia University. It provides a forum for discussion and to foster historical perspectives on international issues of contemporary intellectual concern. It draws upon the collective intellectual resources, not only of the faculty and graduate students of the Department of History, but also of scholars from anthropology, political science, sociology, law and other adjacent fields as well as policy-makers, journalists and other practitioners. Our aim is to feature speakers and events that transcend or transform the public/academic divide and which critically engage with the production and consumption of historical knowledge across divisions of class, race and gender in our global communities. We will focus on developing technological (“digital”) and political (“crisis in the Humanities”) impetuses to situate diverse publics within the fold of history. 01/11/2017 Center for Korean Research. Since its establishment in 1988 within the East Asian Institute (now the Weatherhead East Asian Institute), the Center for Korean Research has played a leading role in the study of Korea within Columbia University, the New York City area, and beyond.

Columbia University Department of Classics. 03/02/2018 The Center for Molecular Recognition was founded in 1989 to provide a focus for research on the structure and function of membrane receptors and transport proteins. Current research concerns the kinetic modeling of receptors, channels, and transporters and the integration of these components in models of cellular signaling. Among the past achievements was the identification of a 40,000-dalton protein (alpha subunit) as the bearer of the binding site for acetylcholine (ACh) in the nicotinic ACh receptor. This was the first correct identification of a subunit of any membrane receptor. 08/01/2017 03/02/2018 25/10/2016 25/10/2016 13/05/2017 09/05/2016 09/05/2016,8599,201871,00.html 03/05/2017 How Fastow Helped Enron Fall.

It is a project of Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in New York City, with international satellite offices in London and Melbourne. The Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma continues a mission that began in 1991 when Frank Ochberg M.D., a psychiatrist and pioneer in the treatment of traumatic stress, collaborated with journalism faculty at Michigan State University and the Michigan Victim Alliance to establish a small program to assist journalism students in reporting on victims of violence with sensitivity, dignity and respect. 03/02/2018 The Double Discovery Center at Columbia College works with low-income and first generation college bound Manhattan area youth from ages 12-27 to ensure high school graduation, college enrollment and completion and responsible adulthood. Founded in 1965 by Columbia and Barnard undergraduates to address the glaring disparities between the local Ivy League institution they attended and the underserved and underperforming schools in the community around them, the program set forth with a simple mission of Double Discovery - to improve local schools by exposing students to the rigor of Columbia, and engage Columbia students with the neighborhood. Annually, 90% of high school seniors participating in Double Discovery graduate from high school on time and enter college the following fall semester. This surpasses city, state and national outcomes for low-income, first-generation college college-bound and minority students. 13/09/2017 Steve Boerner Typography & Design, Inc. A lifetime spent as a photographer, newspaper editor and graphic designer has just added a few extra layers to a foundation that I had the good fortune to acquire as a teenager. Working in a letterpress print shop, setting type by hand and running a platen press was a formative experience and, though I didn't realize it at the time, a perfect introduction to the craft of graphic design. Alphabets made up of solid blocks cast from foundry metal. Pages as sturdy rectangles tightly locked in steel frames. Justifying type the old-fashioned way with tiny slivers of lead, tin and copper. This was a world where design was much more than ink on paper or pixels on a computer display. It was built from real things that had a living, physical presence. 21/06/2016 26/08/2017 Images of African Americans in the 19th Century.

It remains a popular programming language on the IBM i operating system, which runs on IBM Power i platform hardware. The current version, RPG IV (a.k.a. ILE RPG), provides a modern programming environment. 10/12/2017 08/12/2017 EPC Author Pages. Electronic Poetry Center.

Both Prince John and Prince Manuel continued the efforts of Prince Henry to find a sea route to India, and in 1497 Manuel placed Vasco da Gama, who already had some reputation as a warrior and navigator, in charge of four vessels built especially for the expedition. They set sail July 8, 1497, rounded the Cape of Good Hope four months later, and reached Calicut May 20, 1498. The Moors in Calicut instigated the Zamorin of Calicut against him, and he was compelled to return with the bare discovery and the few spices he had bought there at inflated prices [but still he made a 3000% profit!]. 14/04/2016 Amerigo Vespucci (born in Florence in 1452), whose name was given to the American continents by Waldsmuller in 1507, worked in Seville (where he died) in the business house which fitted out Columbus' second expedition. Here he gives an account of the first of his own four voyages. If his claims are accurate he reached the mainland of the Americas shortly before Cabot, and at least 14 months before Columbus. 14/04/2016 Ferdinand de Magellan was born about 1470 of noble parents, and probably spent his boyhood as a page of the Queen of Portugal. As a young man he was in the East India service, then in Morocco. After a slight from King Manuel, he enlisted under the Spanish king, and set forth his project for a trip round the world. The expedition set sail August 10, 1519. Magellan was killed in April 1521 at Zebu [in the Phillippines], but they had already reached the eastern edge of the known world, and his men completed the voyage to Spain. The voyage proved that the earth is round (although most educated people knew this already!). 14/04/2016 Hernan Cortés: from Second Letter to Charles V, 1520. - IN ORDER, most potent Sire, to convey to your Majesty a just conception of the great extent of this noble city of Temixtitlan, and of the many rare and wonderful objects it contains; of the government and dominions of Moctezuma, the sovereign: of the religious rights and customs that prevail, and the order that exists in this as well as the other cities appertaining to his realm: it would require the labor of many accomplished writers, and much time for the completion of the task. I shall not be able to relate an hundredth part of what could be told respecting these matters; but I will endeavor to describe, in the best manner in my power, what I have myself seen; and imperfectly as I may succeed in the attempt, I am fully aware that the account will appear so wonderful as to be deemed scarcely worthy of credit; since even we who have seen these things with our own eyes, are yet so amazed as to be unable to comprehend their reality. 14/04/2016 Pedro de Cieza de Léon: Chronicles of the Incas, 1540. - Another view of the Incas, from a conquistador. It provides quite a lot of information about the Incan economy--a redistributive typical of all early civilizations. It is told for a fact of the rulers of this kingdom that in the days of their rule they had their representatives in the capitals of all the provinces, for in all these places there were larger and finer lodgings than in most of the other cities of this great kingdom, and many storehouses. They served as the head of the provinces or regions, and from every so many leagues around the tributes were brought to one of these capitals, and from so many others, to another. 22/02/2017 12/12/2017 12/12/2017 22/08/2016 23/02/2018 07/01/2018 08/10/2016 05/09/2016 13/03/2018 18/02/2017 18/02/2017 18/02/2017 03/02/2018 Columbia Magazine was founded in 1975 and is published quarterly by the University’s Office of Alumni and Development.

Articles from Monthly Review & Books from Monthly Review Press. 02/04/2017 U.S. Weakness and the Struggle for Hegemony, by Immanuel Wallerstein. I am going to start with two things with which I think nearly all MR readers will probably agree. One, imperialism is an integral part of the capitalist world-economy. It is not a special phenomenon. It has always been there. It always will be there as long as we have a capitalist world-economy. Two, we are experiencing at the moment a particularly aggressive and egregious form of imperialism, which is now even ready to claim that it is being imperialist. 19/09/2016 Why Socialism? by Albert Einstein. Monthly Review. An Independent Socialist Magazine. 02/04/2017 Volume 55, Issue 03 (July-August). Notes From The Editors. The articles on imperialism in this special issue were all written in honor of Harry Magdoff’s ninetieth birthday. Most of them grew out of papers presented at the “Imperialism Today” conference organized to celebrate Harry’s life and work, held in Burlington, Vermont on May 3, 2003. The conference was from our perspective an enormous success. Penetrating analyses of the current imperial moment were presented, challenging questions came from the floor, and there were good discussions and good cheer all around—despite the grim turn of world events that needed to be confronted. 03/01/2018 04/06/2017

Chances are pretty good that if you are cyberstalking me, I want you to be successful. So let me be clear, in so many keywords, that this is the Stephen David Petersen who is really tall, grew up in Milwaukee, went to Nicolet for high school, studied philosophy and math at Harvard, lived in London working for Kemper Reinsurance for a while, lived in Japan teaching for JET for a while, got his philosophy doctorate at the University of Michigan, had a Mellon postdoctoral fellowship at Kalamazoo College, now teaches philosophy at Niagara University, and acts in plays and improv on the side. (And I should emphasize this is not the page of a Steve Peterson—with that dreadfully common 'o' in the name—even though many people might mistakenly search so.) 26/01/2017 23/06/2016 23/06/2016 01/11/2017 The History And Precedential Value Of The Supreme Court Case Cited In Support Of The Bush Administration's Military Tribunals, By Edward Lazarus. Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2001. Until the current flap over President Bush's proposal to try foreign terrorist suspects before special military tribunals, only a handful of national security law specialists and legal history junkies had heard of Ex Parte Quirin- the Supreme Court ruling upholding President Franklin Roosevelt's decision to try eight Nazi saboteurs before a special military court in 1942. But now, of course, it has become a crucial question whether Chief Justice Harlan Stone's opinion for a unanimous Court in Quirin authorizes the military tribunals contemplated in Bush's order. 12/05/2017 The Birkett Mills is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of Buckwheat products.

As is often the case when fear outweighs rational debate, civil liberties paid the price. In November 1919 and January 1920, in what notoriously became known as the “Palmer Raids,” Attorney General Mitchell Palmer began rounding up and deporting so-called radicals. Thousands of people were arrested without warrants and without regard to constitutional protections against unlawful search and seizure. Those arrested were brutally treated and held in horrible conditions.

Terrence Kaufman and John Justeson. 12/12/2017 12/12/2017 31/05/2016 Brown Creepers are tiny woodland birds with an affinity for the biggest trees they can find. Look for these little, long-tailed scraps of brown and white spiraling up stout trunks and main branches, sometimes passing downward-facing nuthatches along the way. They probe into crevices and pick at loose bark with their slender, downcurved bills, and build their hammock-shaped nests behind peeling flakes of bark. Their piercing calls can make it much easier to find this hard-to-see but common species. 12/03/2018 Brown-capped Rosy-Finch. Leucosticte australis. ORDER: Passeriformes. FAMILY: Fringillidae.

This decision was in keeping with Hunting’s philanthropic philosophy and also reflected his conviction that worsening environmental problems required urgent attention. 08/05/2017 Binghamton University opened its doors as Triple Cities College in 1946 to serve the needs of local veterans returning from service in World War II.

It shares many superficial similarities with C, C++, and Objective C (for instance for loops have the same syntax in all four languages); but it is not based on any of those languages, nor have efforts been made to make it compatible with them. Java is sometimes referred to as C++ ++ --. The language was originally created because C++ proved inadequate for certain tasks. Since the designers were not burdened with compatibility with existing languages, they were able to learn from the experience and mistakes of previous object-oriented languages. 19/09/2016 Canisius College is located between the historic Hamlin Park neighborhood and Delaware Park in the city of Buffalo, N.Y.

Advocates of New York City met with success on the first point, while the Anglicans prevailed on the latter. However, all constituencies agreed to commit themselves to principles of religious liberty in establishing the policies of the College. n July 1754, Samuel Johnson held the first classes in a new schoolhouse adjoining Trinity Church, located on what is now lower Broadway in Manhattan.

Perhaps more than any other undergraduate major, art history is tied to the cultural life of New York City, where more people are engaged in making, writing about, exhibiting, and collecting art than any place else in the world. Whether it is devoted to Roman sculpture, Japanese ceramics, or French painting, a class in art history at Columbia brings students into direct contact with works of art in the city's museums and galleries, while classes in architectural history introduce students to the staggering diversity of its buildings and public monuments. Like New York City, the art history curriculum encompasses many different cultures. It is also interdisciplinary in its scope, encouraging students to explore the central role of the visual arts on religion, politics, gender relations, urbanism, and in all other domains of human experience in which works of art inspire, disturb, or energize the imagination. 22/10/2016 The LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies was founded by a generous endowment from LeRoy and Janet Neiman in 1996 to promote printmaking through education, production and exhibition of prints.
