Taylor, British Columbia

a replica of Alexander Mackenzie's birch bark canoe is displayed, and Peace Island Park meeting hall, have been restored and are used today. In 2010 11 the town was featured on the CBC (CBC Television) documentary series ''Village on a Diet''. The '''Peace River Regional District''' is a regional district in northeastern British Columbia, Canada. The regional district comprises seven municipalities and four electoral areas. Its member municipalities are the cities of Fort St. John (Fort St. John, British Columbia) and Dawson Creek (Dawson Creek, British Columbia), the district municipalities (district municipality) of Tumbler Ridge (Tumbler Ridge, British Columbia), Chetwynd (Chetwynd, British Columbia), Taylor (Taylor, British Columbia), and Hudson's Hope (Hudson's Hope, British Columbia), and the village of Pouce Coupe (Pouce Coupe, British Columbia). Peace River also has four regional district electoral areas: B (Peace River B, British Columbia), C (Peace River C, British Columbia), D (Peace River D, British Columbia) and E (Peace River E, British Columbia), six Indian reserves, and one Indian settlement. The district's administrative centre is in Dawson Creek.

I'd like to try doing some copyediting, especially on the introduction and the first para of the history (too many "settlements" :-) ) but life is interfering with Wikipedia so I won't get to it until next week. I find the footnotes interfere with the text and most could be incorporated in it as they are not references. Like I said, I'll take a gander at it next week. You might want to include some climate data from See Dawson City for an example of what I did. 207.189.233.198 (User:207.189.233.198) 21:16, 10 November 2005 (UTC) Somehow, I was logged off. It's me: Luigizanasi (User:Luigizanasi) 21:17, 10 November 2005 (UTC) **Luigizanasi, where do you find those wonderful sources? I noticed that website has climate data on other small cities (like, Taylor (Taylor, British Columbia)) that I just could not find elsewhere. This will really help. Concerning the footnote style: it was something that made sense in the beginning, but it just kept on growing and growing. I'm going to have to turn them into plain old references and merge(?) the notes. --maclean25 (User:Maclean25) 01:02, 12 November 2005 (UTC) That being said, I think it has a spark that I haven't seen in other small towns, and i'm looking for ideas on how to make a small town into an FA, with this one as the test case. So far, I believe that all the municipal area FAs are all large cities, content length may be a factor holding back small towns, regardless of how good they are. Karmafist (User:Karmafist) 20:55, 22 November 2005 (UTC) *I have been experimenting in small town articles, too. My works in progress include Dawson Creek, British Columbia (pop 10,000), Chetwynd (Chetwynd, British Columbia) (pop. 3,000), Taylor (Taylor, British Columbia) (pop. 1,300), and Hudson's Hope (Hudson's Hope, British Columbia) (pop. 1,150). As you can see they are all in different stages of development. They follow the same structure which was based on some of the better FAs on other cities. I have found that the best resource for these have been the local historical associations. Personal knowledge of the town has also been invaluable. --maclean25 (User:Maclean25) 04:40, 23 November 2005 (UTC) right thumb (Image:WestCoast_pipeline.png) '''Westcoast Pipeline''' is a natural gas pipeline in British Columbia that brings natural gas to the United States and to TransCanada pipeline. Built in 1957 by Frank McMahon's (Frank M. McMahon) Westcoast Transmission Co.

It was also during this time while on a survival course he met his future wife, photographer Sue Jamison. They married in 1994 and together left for a year-long honeymoon in the remote Wabakimi area of Ontario which was to become the basis of the documentary (Documentary film) ''Snowshoes and Solitude''. Afterward, the couple moved to Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories where Stroud was employed as an outdoor instructor to special needs individuals of aboriginal descent. Stroud and Jamison then settled in Huntsville, Ontario where they had two children and started both the outdoor instructional outfit Wilderness Voice and the media company Wilderness Spirit Productions. Inspired by the popularity of the television show ''Survivor'' (Survivor (TV series)), Stroud pitched a more authentic version of the show to The Discovery Channel Canada (Discovery Channel (Canada)). Stroud produced two programs titled ''One Week in the Wilderness'' and ''Winter in the Wilderness'' for @discovery.ca in 2001. The success of these specials led to the development of ''Survivorman'', a show that followed a similar format of leaving Stroud on his own, with minimal equipment, in the wilderness to videotape his survival experience. *Tulita (Tulita, Northwest Territories) (Tulita Airport) *Yellowknife (Yellowknife Airport) thumb Ice road across the Mackenzie River (File:Ice road across the Mackenzie, at Tsiigehtchic, Northwest Territories.jpg), at Tsiigehtchic, Northwest Territories. Because ice roads are flat, devoid of trees, rocks and other obstacles, they have a smooth driving surface. The roads from Yellowknife to Port Radium (Port Radium, Northwest Territories) by John Denison (John Denison (engineer)), a pioneer of ice roads in Northern Canada from the 1950s-1970s, were largely plowed across frozen lakes, with a short overland portage between the shoreline of one lake and the next. Similar to ice roads, ice runways are common in the polar regions and include the blue ice runways such as Wilkins Runway in Antarctica or lake ice runways like Doris Lake Aerodrome in the Arctic. Ice is used as an emergency landing surface.

The community is served only by air and by annual supply sealift. Taloyoak may mean "large blind", referring to a stone caribou blind or a screen used for caribou hunting.

IMDB - Known Universe (TV Series 2009– ) When the problem reoccurred, NASA ran a fuel test, which led them to believe the problem lied in the faulty connector. The connector was then removed from the tank and taken to Marshall Space Flight Center (w:Marshall Space Flight Center) in Huntsville (w:Huntsville, Alabama), Alabama, where it is currently undergoing extensive analysis and modification. The new connector is scheduled to be installed by January 10. At the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center (w:Marshall Space Flight Center) activities will focus on their slogan for Earth Day 2009, "Just One Drop ... PRICELESS" and will demonstrate how the Environmental Control Life Support System (w:Life support system) operates as used on the International Space Staton (w:International Space Station) (ISS).

Changsha

The '''Battle of Changsha''' (1944), (also known as the '''Battle of Hengyang''' or '''Campaign of Changsha-Hengyang''') was an invasion of the Chinese (China) province of Hunan by Japanese troops near the end of the Second Sino-Japanese War. As such, it encompasses three separate conflicts: an invasion of the city of Changsha and two invasions of Hengyang. In June 1944, the Japanese deployed 360,000 troops (not including air and naval support), to attack Changsha for the fourth time (the first being in 1939). The Operation involved more Japanese troops than any other campaign in the Second Sino-Japanese war. Changsha is the capital city of Hunan province and an important junction of two railroads in southern China: the tri-province railroad of Hunan-Kweichow-Guangxi and the one from Canton (Canton (Guangzhou)) to Wuhan. Hengyang is also on the tri-province railroad and very close to the Canton (Canton (Guangzhou))-Wuhan Railroad. Furthermore, Lake Dongting and the cities of Changsha, Hengyang, and Lingling, are connected by the Hsiang River. It was imperative for both sides to control the suburban areas of Changsha and Hengyang.

Historical details about Qu Yuan's life are few, and his authorship of many ''Chu-ci'' poems have been questioned at length.

However, he is widely accepted to have written ''Li Sao'', the most well-known of the ''Chu-ci'' poems, and possibly several others in the collection, as well. The first known reference to Qu Yuan appears in a poem written in 174 BCE by Jia Yi, an official from Luoyang who was slandered by jealous officials and banished to Changsha by Emperor Wen of Han. While traveling, he wrote a poem describing the similar fate of a previous "Qu Yuan." Quoted in Ban Gu
