Action of Schweitzer’s Work, it was decided to extend activities to Haiti, then to the Amazon (Amazon Rainforest), while continuing with Sahel-based projects with the CEAS. At that point, the name of the organization was changed to Nouvelle Planète. Fatalities 38 direct Areas Leeward Islands, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Cuba, Florida, Texas Hurricane season 1958 Atlantic hurricane season '''Hurricane Ella''' was the first major hurricane to strike Cuba since Hurricane Fox (Hurricane Fox (1952)) of 1952 (1952 Atlantic hurricane season). The fifth tropical cyclone of the 1958 Atlantic hurricane season, Ella developed on August 30 from a tropical wave located east of the Lesser Antilles. The system intensified into Tropical Storm Ella shortly before crossing through the Leeward Islands, and entering the Caribbean Sea. Ella later intensified into a hurricane, and was a Category 2 hurricane when it struck the Tiburon Peninsula (Tiburon Peninsula, Haiti) of Haiti. After striking Haiti, Ella continued to intensify, and made landfall near Santiago de Cuba, Cuba as a Category 3 hurricane. Ella rapidly weakened over Cuba, and deteriorated to a tropical storm less than twelve hours later. As Ella remained near the Cuban coastline, re-intensification occurred, and the storm was near hurricane intensity when it had another landfall on the southwest coast of the island. No re-intensification occurred after emerging into the Gulf of Mexico, and Ella made a final landfall near Corpus Christi, Texas on September 6, with winds of 45 mph (70 km h). Ella rapidly weakened over land, and dissipated later that day. There were no reported damage in the Virgin Islands. Many recording stations in those areas reported winds up to 40 mph (65 km h) and there was minor flooding damage in Puerto Rico. Ella brought heavy rains, that caused $100,000 (1958 USD; $ WikiPedia:Haiti Dmoz:Regional Caribbean Haiti Commons:Category:Haiti

After the war, northern parts of Appalachia experienced an economic boom, while economies in the southern parts of the region stagnated, especially as Southern Democrats regained control of their respective state legislatures at the end of Reconstruction. Pittsburgh and its surrounding areas in western Pennsylvania grew into one of the nation's major industrial centers, especially regarding iron and steel production. By 1900, the Chattanooga area and north Georgia and northern Alabama had experienced similar changes due to manufacturing booms in Atlanta and Birmingham (Birmingham, Alabama) at the edge of the Appalachian region. Railroad construction between the 1880s and early 20th century gave the greater nation access to the vast coalfields in central Appalachia, making the economy in that part of the region practically synonymous with coal mining. As the nationwide demand for timber skyrocketed, lumber firms turned to the virgin forests of southern Appalachia, using sawmill and logging railroad innovations to reach remote timber stands. The Tri-Cities (Tri-Cities, Tennessee) area of Tennessee and Virginia and the Kanawha Valley of West Virginia became major petrochemical production centers. Drake, ''A History of Appalachia'', 131-141. Communications In the 1940s through the 1960s, Wheeling, West Virginia became a cultural center of the region because it had a clear-channel (clear-channel station) AM (Amplitude modulation) radio station WWVA (WWVA (AM)), which could be heard throughout the entirety of eastern USA at night. Although stations such as Pittsburgh's KDKA (KDKA (AM)) and KQV (KQV (AM)) were 50 kilowatt clear channels that dated back to the early 1920s (as well as spanning all the east coast (East Coast of the United States) in signal strength), WWVA prided itself on rural and farm programming that appealed to a wider audience in the rural region. Coal mining has made a comeback in some regions in the early 21st century as an alternative energy source as well as the increased prominence of CONSOL Energy, based in Pittsburgh. The Quecreek Mine Rescue in 2002 and continuing mine subsidence problems in abandoned coal mines in western Pennsylvania and other regions have also been highlighted in recent times.

Tryon composed plans for an elaborate governor's mansion, which would also function as a central location for government business; Tryon worked with Hawks during 1764 and 1765 to draw up plans for an elaborate home for himself. In December 1766, the North Carolina legislature authorized ₤5,000 for the building of Tryon's mansion. Tryon told the legislature that the sum was not substantial enough for the plans he and Hawk had created; building it "in the plainest manner" would cost no less than ₤10,000 without including the outbuildings he envisioned. Hawks agreed to supervise the construction for three years and went to Philadelphia at Tryon's behest to hire workers; Tryon said native North Carolina workers would not know how to construct such a building. Tryon was able to convince the legislature to increase taxes to help pay for the project. The unpopularity of the new taxes spawned the derogatory nickname 'Tryon Palace'. In 1770, Tryon

The low-cost FLEXI-232 Data Terminal Equipment (DTE), which are based on the MELCODER golden reference, are very popular and widely used for evaluating and testing MELPe in real-time, various channels & networks, and field conditions. In January, 2004, Vissel was sold to Crimson Group, parent company of online merchant Rakuten, whose president is Kobe native Hiroshi Mikitani. So far, Mikitani's attempts to strengthen the team have met little success. Vissel's first signing under the Mikitani regime, İlhan Mansız, who was acquired partly to capitalize on his popularity during the 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea Japan, was a massive failure - the Turkish (Turkey) forward (Striker) played just three matches before leaving the team because of a knee injury. Mikitani also alienated supporters by changing the team uniform colors from black and white stripes to crimson, after his Crimson Group and the color of his alma mater, Harvard Business School. (The Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles, a baseball (Nippon Professional Baseball) team also owned by Rakuten but based in Sendai (Sendai, Miyagi), wear the same colors.)

'''''Dünyayı Kurtaran Adam''''' (''The Man Who Saves the World'') is a 1982 Turkish (Turkey)-made adventure movie commonly known as '''''Turkish Star Wars''''' because of its notorious use of unauthorized footage from ''Star Wars (Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope)'' worked into the film. The sequel was released on 15 December 2006. Some fans expressed their disapproval that the special effects were not similar to the original film, where all the space scenes were ripped directly from science fiction titles of the time such as ''Star Wars (Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope)'', the ''Star Trek'' series and ''Battlestar Galactica''. Famous actors from Turkey, such as Mehmet Ali Erbil took part; Kartal Tibet directed. Biography Born in Ankara in 1941, Inanç spent his youth pursuing a career in Law. He later abandoned his career in law. He began his cinema career as the assistant of well-known Turkish director Atıf Yılmaz. In 1967 he made his first movie ''Çelik Bilek'' based on an Italian comics character. He quickly moved into the niche market of producing erotica, but was dissuaded from that path as military took over in Turkey and passed several censorship laws against adult movies. His next venture was action movies, including his most famous work Dünyayı Kurtaran Adam, a space saga commonly dubbed the "Turkish Star Wars". The '''Eastern Orphean Warbler''', '''''Sylvia hortensis crassirostris''''', is a typical warbler of the genus ''Sylvia''. This species occurs in summer around the Mediterranean, through the Balkans via Turkey, the Caucasus and surrounding regions to Central Asia. It is migratory (bird migration), wintering in sub-Saharan Africa. Some taxonomists consider both subspecies Orphean Warblers to be distinct enough to separate them into species. The '''Lockheed Martin Sniper Advanced Targeting Pod (ATP)''', designated AN AAQ-33 in U.S. Military Service, provides positive target identification, autonomous tracking, coordinate generation, and precise weapons guidance from extended standoff ranges.
