He has a soft spot for plant life. Growing up in a tribe in his homeland, he is at one with the land and its purpose, and does what he can to preserve it. The de facto leader of the group, he is the voice of reason that keeps the Planeteers in check when the group begins to lose faith in a given situation. * '''Wheeler''' (voiced by Joey Dedio): From North America (specifically Brooklyn, NY (Brooklyn)), Wheeler controls the power of Fire. Wheeler is shown to be the least knowledgeable about earth preservation trends though this improves as the show goes on (in a way representing the oblivious aspect people have of the harm that they can cause to nature). He is the street-smart comic relief for the group who, while having his heart in the right place, tends to get himself into tight spots when acting impulsively; fittingly, he is sometimes a "hothead". Throughout the series, he openly flirts with and tries to get closer to Linka, almost always having his advances shot down.

Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and former Secretary of Defense William Cohen also testify before the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States. (AP via SFGate) Official perspective This conflict is seen by the present day Zimbabwean Government and the official MDC (Movement for Democratic Change – Tsvangirai) opposition as a war of national liberation from colonialism and racism. At the time of the conflict, the then Wilson Government in London and Patriotic Front (former military alliance of ZAPU-PF and ZANU-PF) shared this view, along with the OAU, United Nations and many members of the Commonwealth of Nations such as Canada, India, Ghana and New Zealand, China the European Union and the former Eastern Block states. Oral History The Annangs have a rich oral tradition. It is believed that the group have their origins in Egypt and settled in Ghana before arriving in the present area. The name Annang in Twi in Ghana means fourth son. It is believed that Annangs started their migration from Egypt around 7500 BC. The Abiakpo came to the northern range of Annang from Eka Abiakpo. They were quickly followed by the Ukana clan, the Utu, Ekpu, Ebom and Nyama (The British would lumped these together and gave the name Otoro), and other Annang clans. The city has thus developed in precolonial times as a commercial crossroads on the road to the cola (Kola nut) between Ghana and Benin, and now as a place of passage on the only road north-south Togo, linking the capital Lome in Burkina Faso. Urbanization has accelerated during the colonization. The city consists of ancient villages have now become real neighborhoods. Its growth has also been the work of entire villages that had approached the city and intercity migration. nativename

Washington, D.C.

It is the only major circle downtown that remains entirely residential. In a November 2000 article from the ''New York Times Magazine'', Times journalist Roger Cohen talked to various officials from US based organizations about the extent of American assistance received by Otpor. Paul B. McCarthy from the Washington (Washington, D.C.)-based NED (National Endowment for Democracy) stated that Otpor received the majority of US$3 million spent by NED in Serbia from September 1998 until October 2000. At the same time, McCarthy himself held a series of meetings with Otpor's leaders in Podgorica, as well as Szeged and Budapest. Street-naming conventions Street names may follow a variety of themes. In many North American cities, such as, San Francisco USA, and Edmonton, Canada, streets are simply numbered sequentially (numbered street) across the street grid. Washington, D.C. has its numbered streets running north-south and lettered or alphabetically named streets running east-west, while diagonal avenues are typically named after states. In Salt Lake City, and many other Utah cities, streets are in a large grid and are numbered in increments of 100 based on their location relative to the center of the city in blocks. A similar system is in use in Detroit with the Mile Road System (Mile Road System (Detroit)). In some housing developments in North America, streets may all follow the same theme (for example, bird species), or start with the same letter. Streets in Continental Europe, the Middle East, and Latin America are usually named after famous people or auspicious dates.
