the International style (International style (architecture)) of architecture; typical of the period between 1920 and 1950 International Building Style at Ontario Architecture while residential buildings from the 1850s use the Gothic Revival (Gothic Revival architecture) style of architecture. ''Architecture: Ontario New York'' at Thousand Islands Life The relatively tall buildings that came out of the "International" style (compared to the buildings that existed in Simcoe prior to the 1950s) were used in an attempt to make Simcoe into a more international destination for people to live, work, and admire. A couple of buildings in the downtown core even blend some "International" elements with that of the Art Deco style of architecture; bringing bright colors and illusions of rapid movement into the building design. The only operating alligator tugboat remaining in the world, the ''W.D. Stalker'', is located in Simcoe. Alligator of the North, Barrett Harry, and Clarence Coons Simcoe has its own radio station, CD 98.9, and two newspapers: The Simcoe Reformer and the NYCA Hub. CHCH-DT in Hamilton (Hamilton, Ontario) is the nearest broadcast television station along with CKCO-DT in Kitchener (Kitchener, Ontario) and CIII-DT (a Toronto station with a repeater in Paris (Paris, Ontario), Ontario). CHCH (channel 11 on Eastlink Cable - formerly Amtelecom Cable) is mostly a news channel while CKCO (CTV Two) and CIII (Global (Global Television Network)) offer a variety of entertainment choices during prime time (7 PM through 11 PM on weekdays). Major local festivals include the Rotary-sponsored Friendship Festival (Simcoe Rotary Friendship Festival), the Norfolk County Fair and Horse Show, and the winter light show of Panorama. Simcoe was one of the communities in Canada through which the Olympic torch travelled while going from its home base in Athens, Greece to Vancouver for the 21st Winter Olympic Games (2010 Winter Olympics) in Vancouver (Vancouver, British Columbia), British Columbia. The ''Simcoe Santa Claus Parade'' has been historically held on the weekend following Remembrance Day. During the heyday of this event in the 1950s, the entire town would stop operating for one afternoon for people to enjoy the festivities. . caption Historic images location Simcoe (Simcoe, Ontario), Ontario years_active 172 Summary Unlike the majority of Haldimand or Norfolk County, Nanticoke a highly industralized community.

Weimar Republic

of the Third Reich'', p. 416 Just as important was the influence of the 19th century English designer William Morris, who had argued that art should meet the needs of society and that there should be no distinction between form and function. ''Funk and Wagnall's New Encyclopaedia'', Vol 5, p. 348 Thus the Bauhaus style, also known as the International Style (International style (architecture)), was marked by the absence of ornamentation and by harmony between the function of an object or a building and its design. For many years, Germany (Weimar Republic) simply had no battleships. The Armistice with Germany (Armistice with Germany (Compiègne)) required that most of the High Seas Fleet be disarmed and interned in a neutral port; largely because no neutral port could be found, the ships remained in British custody in Scapa Flow, Scotland. The Treaty of Versailles specified that the ships should be handed over to the British. Instead, most of them were scuttled (scuttling) by their German crews on 21 June 1919 just before the signature of the peace treaty. The treaty also limited the German Navy, and prevented Germany from building or possessing any capital ships. Ireland, Bernard: ''Jane's War At Sea'', p. 118 Remembrance The Battle of Jutland was annually celebrated as a great victory by the right wing in Weimar Germany. This "victory" was used to repress the memory of the German navy's initiation of the German Revolution of 1918–1919, as well as the memory of the defeat in World War I in general. (The celebrations of the Battle of Tannenberg played a similar role in the Weimar Republic.) This is especially true for the city of Wilhelmshaven, where wreath-laying ceremonies and torch-lit parades were performed until the end of the 1960s. Götz: Remembering the Battle, p. 360 It was founded as a continuation of the Weimar (Weimar Republic)-era Catholic Bavarian People's Party. At the federal level, it forms a common 'CDU CSU' faction in the Bundestag with the CDU, which is frequently referred to as the Union faction (''die Unionsfraktion''). The CSU currently governs at the federal level with the CDU (Christian Democratic Union (Germany)) and FDP (Free Democratic Party (Germany)). In the state of Bavaria, the CSU governs in a coalition with the FDP (Free Democratic Party (Germany)). As part of the de-militarization of the Rhineland the fortifications had to be dismantled. This was taken as an opportunity to create two green belts (''Grüngürtel'') around the city by converting the fortifications and their clear fields of fire into large public parks. However this project was not completed until 1933. In 1919 the University of Cologne, closed by the French in 1798, was refounded. This re-foundation was considered a replacement for the loss of the German University of Strasbourg that became part of France with the rest of Alsace. Cologne prospered during the Weimar Republic (1919–1933) and progress was made especially in respect to public governance, city planning, housing and social affairs. Social housing projects were considered exemplary and copied by other German cities. As Cologne competed for hosting the Olympics a modern sports stadium was erected at Müngersdorf. When the British occupation ended, civil aviation was allowed once again and Cologne Butzweilerhof Airport soon became a hub for national and international air traffic: second in Germany only to Berlin Tempelhof Airport (Tempelhof International Airport). The punk subculture in the United States and United Kingdom was often hostile towards disco. Allmusic Disco Genre Jello Biafra of The Dead Kennedys, in the song "Saturday Night Holocaust", likened disco to the cabaret culture of Weimar (Weimar Republic)-era Germany for its apathy towards government policies and its escapism. Mark Mothersbaugh of Devo said that disco was "like a beautiful woman with a great body and no brains", and a product of political apathy of that era. DEVO and the evolution of The Wipeouters interview with MARK MOTHERSBAUGH Juice Magazine New Jersey rock critic Jim Testa wrote "Put a Bullet Through the Jukebox", a vitriolic screed attacking disco that was considered a punk call to arms.
