Delaware. - The First State. - The Small Wonder. - Blue Hen State. - The Diamond State. - (19 links).

Delaware is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic or Northeastern regions of the United States. It is bordered to the south and west by Maryland, to the northeast by New Jersey, and to the north by Pennsylvania. The state takes its name from Thomas West, 3rd Baron De La Warr, an English nobleman and Virginia's first colonial governor. Delaware occupies the northeastern portion of the Delmarva Peninsula and is the second smallest, the sixth least populous, but the sixth most densely populated of the 50 United States. Delaware is divided into three counties, the lowest number of counties of any state. From north to south, the three counties are New Castle, Kent, and Sussex. While the southern two counties have historically been predominantly agricultural, New Castle County has been more industrialized. Before its coastline was explored by Europeans in the 16th century, Delaware was inhabited by several groups of Native Americans, including the Lenape in the north and Nanticoke in the south. It was initially colonized by Dutch traders at Zwaanendael, near the present town of Lewes, in 1631. Delaware was one of the 13 colonies participating in the American Revolution. On December 7, 1787, Delaware became the first state to ratify the Constitution of the United States, and has since promoted itself as "The First State".

November 2, 2012 - In the recent Physical Review Letters article, graduate student Farzad Mahfouzi and Prof. Nikolic, in collaboration with Prof. Naoto Nagaosa from the University of Tokyo and RIKEN Advanced Science Institute in Japan, have predicted a new type of spin-transfer torque in vertical heterostructures involving recently discovered three-dimensional topological insulators (TIs). The spin-transfer torque (STT) is a phenomenon in which spin current of large enough density injected into a ferromagnetic (F) layer either switches its magnetization from one static configuration to another or generates a dynamical situation with steady-state precessing magnetization.

One of the oldest universities in the U.S., the University of Delaware traces its roots to 1743 when a petition by the Presbytery of Lewes expressing the need for an educated clergy led the Rev. Dr. Francis Alison to open a school in New London, Pennsylvania.

Northern Mariana Islands. - Sankattan Siha Na Islas Mariånas. - Commonwealth Téél Falúw kka Efáng llól Marianas. - Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. - (2 links).

The Northern Mariana Islands, officially the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI; Chamorro: Sankattan Siha Na Islas Mariånas; Refaluwasch or Carolinian: Commonwealth Téél Falúw kka Efáng llól Marianas), is an insular area and commonwealth of the United States consisting of 15 islands in the northwestern Pacific Ocean. The CNMI includes all islands in the Mariana Archipelago except Guam which is the southernmost island of the chain and a separate U.S. territory. The United States Department of the Interior cites a landmass of 183.5 square miles (475.26 km2). According to the 2010 United States Census, 53,883 people were living in the CNMI at that time. The vast majority of the population resides on Saipan, Tinian, and Rota. The other islands of the Northern Marianas are sparsely inhabited; the most notable among these is Pagan, which for various reasons over the centuries has experienced major population flux, but formerly had residents numbering in the thousands. The administrative center is Capitol Hill, a village in northwestern Saipan. However, most publications consider Saipan to be the capital because the island is governed as a single municipality.

    13/07/2018 CNIC. Commander, Joint Region Marianas. Joint Region Marianas' mission is to provide executive level installation management support to all Department of Defense components and tenants through assigned regional installations on Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands in support of training in the Marianas; to act as the interface between the Navy and the civilian community; to ensure compliance with all environmental laws and regulations, safety procedures, and equal opportunity policy; and perform other functions and tasks as may be assigned. 13/07/2018 The seafaring Chamorro people originally settled the Mariana Islands over 3,500 years ago, sailing large outrigger canoes know as "proas" from Southeast Asia. Around 1,000 years ago, they began constructing two-piece megalithic pillar structures out of limestone. These "latte stone" creations still exist on several Mariana Islands. Although they have endured centuries of change, the Chamorro spirit lives on in its people. Today their descendants predominantly use the Chamorro language and continue to preserve their culture and traditions. Explorer Ferdinand Magellan first sighted the Marianas when he crossed the Pacific in 1521 and made landfall on Guam. Spain officially claimed Saipan in 1565 and later named the islands for their queen, Mariana.

New Hampshire. - The Granite State. - (36 links).

New Hampshire is a state in the New England region of the northeastern United States. It is bordered by Massachusetts to the south, Vermont to the west, Maine and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, and the Canadian province of Quebec to the north. New Hampshire is the 5th smallest by land area and the 9th least populous of the 50 United States. In January 1776, it became the first of the British North American colonies to establish a government independent of the Kingdom of Great Britain's authority, and it was the first to establish its own state constitution. Six months later, it became one of the original 13 states that founded the United States of America, and in June 1788 it was the ninth state to ratify the Constitution, bringing that document into effect. Concord is the state capital, while Manchester is the largest city in the state and in northern New England, including Vermont and Maine. It has no general sales tax, nor is personal income (other than interest and dividends) taxed at either the state or local level. The New Hampshire primary is the first primary in the U.S. presidential election cycle. Its license plates carry the state motto, "Live Free or Die". The state's nickname, "The Granite State", refers to its extensive granite formations and quarries. Among prominent individuals from New Hampshire are founding father Nicholas Gilman, Senator Daniel Webster, Revolutionary War hero John Stark, editor Horace Greeley, founder of the Christian Science religion Mary Baker Eddy, poet Robert Frost, astronaut Alan Shepard, rock musician Ronnie James Dio, author Dan Brown, actor Adam Sandler, inventor Dean Kamen, comedians Sarah Silverman and Seth Meyers, restaurateurs Richard and Maurice McDonald, and President of the United States Franklin Pierce. With some of the largest ski mountains on the East Coast, New Hampshire's major recreational attractions include skiing, snowmobiling, and other winter sports, hiking and mountaineering, observing the fall foliage, summer cottages along many lakes and the seacoast, motor sports at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway, and Motorcycle Week, a popular motorcycle rally held in Weirs Beach near Laconia in June. The White Mountain National Forest links the Vermont and Maine portions of the Appalachian Trail, and boasts the Mount Washington Auto Road, where visitors may drive to the top of 6,288-foot (1,917 m) Mount Washington.

The role Portsmouth, New Hampshire played in the Civil War, the bloodiest conflict in the nation’s history, was remarkable by any standard. A town of fewer than 10,000 inhabitants during the war, Portsmouth sent almost half of its eligible male residents to serve in the Union army, navy and marines. Many would never return to their homes near the Piscatauqa River. Generals Fitz John Porter and Amiel W. Whipple hailed from Portsmouth, but it was not just those of fame (or notoriety in the case of Porter) that made their mark. The essays in this catalog also highlight the efforts, often heroic, made by ordinary citizens on the battlefield and on the home front. This catalog originally accompanied an exhibit at the Portsmouth Athenaeum from July 11-November 18, 2000. It was deemed timely to republish this significant contribution. 07/05/2018 Dartmouth College.

Colorado. - The Centennial State. - (123 links).

Colorado is a state in the United States encompassing most of the Southern Rocky Mountains as well as the northeastern portion of the Colorado Plateau and the western edge of the Great Plains. Colorado is part of the Western United States, the Southwestern United States, and the Mountain States. Colorado is the 8th most extensive and the 21st most populous of the 50 United States. The United States Census Bureau estimates that the population of Colorado was 5,540,545 on July 1, 2016, an increase of 10.17% since the 2010 United States Census. The state was named for the Colorado River, which Spanish travelers named the Río Colorado for the ruddy (Spanish: colorado) silt the river carried from the mountains. The Territory of Colorado was organized on February 28, 1861, and on August 1, 1876, U.S. President Ulysses S. Grant signed Proclamation 230 admitting Colorado to the Union as the 38th state. Colorado is nicknamed the "Centennial State" because it became a state a century after the signing of the United States Declaration of Independence. Colorado is bordered by Wyoming to the north, Nebraska to the northeast, Kansas to the east, Oklahoma to the southeast, New Mexico to the south, Utah to the west, and Arizona to the southwest at the Four Corners. Colorado is noted for its vivid landscape of mountains, forests, high plains, mesas, canyons, plateaus, rivers, and desert lands. Denver is the capital and the most populous city of Colorado. Residents of the state are properly known as "Coloradans", although the term "Coloradoan" has been used archaically and lives on in the title of Fort Collins' newspaper, the Coloradoan.

Geography was jointly-housed within the Department of Geography and Geology until 1957 when it was granted autonomous status, with Albert Smith as its first Chair, serving from 1957 to 1960 and beginning a tradition of rotating chairmanship in the department, which continues to this day. In 1959, Geography moved into the Guggenheim Building, where the Law School was formerly housed. Our PhD program was initiated in 1962, with the first PhD awarded in 1968 to Ian Campbell. In 1972, Gilbert White and Ken Erickson initiated an interdisciplinary major in Environmental Conservation, which in 1993 became the separate program in Environmental Studies. 02/06/2017 19/09/2016 19/09/2016 06/07/2018 01/04/2017 01/04/2017 01/04/2017 01/04/2017 01/04/2017 01/04/2017 01/04/2017 01/04/2017 01/04/2017 01/04/2017 01/04/2017 01/04/2017 01/04/2017 01/04/2017 01/04/2017 01/04/2017 01/04/2017 01/04/2017 01/04/2017 01/04/2017 14/10/2017 22/12/2016 02/04/2017 10/07/2018 Colorado Springs Independent. 26/04/2018 10/07/2018 Food / Drink.

In many ways, jazz guitar was still in its infancy back when Johnny Smith first started making a name for himself. In 1953, one of Smith's contemporaries, Barney Kessel, talked about playing with an "all-colored unit" that once featured the legendary Charlie Christian: "They kept telling me to play like a horn," the young guitarist told DownBeat's Nat Hentoff, recounting Christian's advice that, while interesting harmonies were all well and good, "swing alone is enough to get you by."

Formed by Jim Dalton (vocals, guitar) and Tyson Murray (upright bass), the Railbenders took a mutual love of Johnny Cash, Waylon, Hank Williams, rock 'n' roll, punk, whiskey, and threw it all together to create their own sound. Powered by the steady rolling' drums of Graham Haworth and the blazing guitar picking of Tony Nascar ("The Fastest Guitar in the West"), the band has garnered local awards, including "Top Country Band" by the Rocky Mountain News (2004 & 2005), and "Best Country/Roots Band" five years in a row (2002 to 2006) in the annual Westword Music Showcase. 29/10/2017 13/04/2018 13/04/2018 30/09/2016 14/04/2018 29/01/2018 17/06/2018 05/03/2018 05/03/2018 27/05/2017

Washington, D.C. - Washington. - The District. - D.C. - 1/3 - (781 links).

Washington, D.C., formally the District of Columbia and commonly referred to as "Washington", "the District", or simply "D.C.", is the capital of the United States. The signing of the Residence Act on July 16, 1790, approved the creation of a capital district located along the Potomac River on the country's East Coast. The U.S. Constitution provided for a federal district under the exclusive jurisdiction of the Congress and the District is therefore not a part of any state. The states of Maryland and Virginia each donated land to form the federal district, which included the pre-existing settlements of Georgetown and Alexandria. Named in honor of President George Washington, the City of Washington was founded in 1791 to serve as the new national capital. In 1846, Congress returned the land originally ceded by Virginia; in 1871, it created a single municipal government for the remaining portion of the District. Washington had an estimated population of 681,170 as of July 2016. Commuters from the surrounding Maryland and Virginia suburbs raise the city's population to more than one million during the workweek. The Washington metropolitan area, of which the District is the principal city, has a population of over 6 million, the sixth-largest metropolitan statistical area in the country. The centers of all three branches of the federal government of the United States are in the District, including the Congress, President, and Supreme Court. Washington is home to many national monuments and museums, which are primarily situated on or around the National Mall. The city hosts 176 foreign embassies as well as the headquarters of many international organizations, trade unions, non-profit organizations, lobbying groups, and professional associations. A locally elected mayor and a 13‑member council have governed the District since 1973. However, the Congress maintains supreme authority over the city and may overturn local laws. D.C. residents elect a non-voting, at-large congressional delegate to the House of Representatives, but the District has no representation in the Senate. The District receives three electoral votes in presidential elections as permitted by the Twenty-third Amendment to the United States Constitution, ratified in 1961.,_D.C.

    18/02/2018 Data Services provided by the AA Department. Astronomical Applications Department. U.S. Naval Observatory. 18/02/2018 The Astronomical Applications Department of the U.S. Naval Observatory computes, from fundamental astronomical reference data, the position, brightness, and other observable characteristics of celestial bodies, as well as the circumstances of astronomical phenomena. This information is of critical importance to navigation, military operations planning, scientific research, surveying, accident reconstruction, architecture, and everyday activities. The Astronomical Applications Department (AA) is one of five scientific departments within the U.S. Naval Observatory (USNO). The USNO is a U.S. Navy Echelon 4 command located organizationally under Commander Naval Meteorology and Oceanography Command (CNMOC), U.S. Fleet Forces Command (USFF), and the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO). 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. 10/01/2018 12/03/2018 Science Advances is the offspring of Science, created by the opportunities and imperatives of digital, open access publishing. 30/07/2017 The National Museum of African Art (NMAfA) began as a private educational institution in 1964 to promote cross-cultural understanding in the social sciences and arts. Founded by Warren M. Robbins, a former U.S. Foreign Service officer, it was known as the Museum of African Art and located on Capitol Hill in a townhouse that had been the home of Frederick Douglass, the African American abolitionist and statesman. In August 1979, by enactment of Public Law 95-414, the museum became part of the Smithsonian Institution, the world’s largest museum and research complex dedicated to the increase and diffusion of knowledge. 23/10/2016 Welcome to the Collection of the National Museum of African Art!

Only at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, USA, would you see the picturesque foreground of the famous Old Faithful Geyser erupting in front an already picturesque sky. Old Faithful Geyser, visible in the foreground, is seen propelling a stream of hot water over 30 meters in the air. This happens predictably for a few minutes about every 90 minutes. Also predictable are the brightest orbs that populate the nighttime sky, although those visible at any one time keep changing. Visible far in the background sky of this mid-July image are the plane of our Milky Way Galaxy on the left, and the bright planet Jupiter on the right. Jupiter is the brightest celestial object in the entire image. Old Faithful has been erupting at least since the late 1800s. 03/04/2016 On March 2, 1865, the House of Representatives separated the appropriating and banking and currency duties from the Committee on Ways and Means, which was first established in 1789, and assigned them to two new committees - the Committee on Appropriations and the Committee on Banking and Currency. Until 1865, all "general" appropriations bills had been controlled in the House by the Committee on Ways and Means - also in charge of revenue measures and some other classes of substantive legislation. 03/07/2017 10/02/2017 19/12/2017 Internet Archive BookReader.

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. 19/03/2017 17/09/2016 17/09/2016 24/04/2018 09/11/2017 Department of Botany.

The purpose and mission was to question commonplace views and groupthink and to give a voice to alternative views about American foreign policy. Huntington hoped it would be “serious but not scholarly, lively but not glib.” In 2000, under the ownership of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, FP transitioned from a slim, quarterly journal to the glossy magazine it is today — while retaining its independent viewpoint and commitment to rigorous exploration of the world’s biggest issues. 30/05/2018 Daniel W.

The Globe is the third of the four series of publications containing the debates of Congress. It was preceded by the Annals of Congress and the Register of Debates and succeeded by the Congressional Record. The first five volumes of the Globe (23rd Congress, 1st Session through 25th Congress, 1st Session, 1833-37) overlap with the Register of Debates. Initially the Globe contained a "condensed report" or abstract rather than a verbatim report of the debates and proceedings.
