However, Portland's location at the Willamette's confluence with the Columbia River, accessible to deep-draft vessels, gave it a key advantage over its older peer. It also triumphed over early rivals such as Milwaukie (Milwaukie, Oregon) and Linnton (Linnton, Portland, Oregon). In its first census in 1850, the city’s population was 821 and, like many frontier towns, was predominantly male, with 653 male whites, 164 female whites and four “free colored” individuals. It was already the largest settlement in the Pacific Northwest, and while it could boast about its trading houses, hotels and even a newspaper—the ''Weekly Oregonian'' (The Oregonian)—it was still very much a frontier village, derided by outsiders as “Stumptown” and “Mudtown.” It was a place where “stumps from fallen firs lay scattered dangerously about Front and First Streets … humans and animals, carts and wagons slogged through a sludge of mud and water … sidewalks often disappeared during spring floods.”

Currently for Kazakhstan, ISO 3166-2 codes are defined for 2 cities and 14 regions (provinces of Kazakhstan). The cities Almaty and Astana are the former and current capitals of the country respectively and have special status equal to the regions. Baikonur, a city which also has special status as it is currently leased by Russia, had its code deleted in Newsletter I-4 (#I-4). Mission profile ''Mars Express'' launched from Baikonur on 2 June 2003, at 17:45 UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) (18:45 BST (British Summer Time)). The ''Beagle 2'' was a Mars lander initially mounted on the top deck of the ''Mars Express Orbiter''. It was released from the ''Orbiter'' on a ballistic trajectory towards Mars on the 19th of December 2003 at 8:31 UT. ''Beagle 2'' coasted for six days after release and was scheduled to enter the Martian atmosphere, at over 20,000 km h, on the morning of the 25th of December. The lander was protected from the heat of entry by a heatshield coated with NORCOAT, an ablating material made by EADS. Compression of the martian atmosphere and radiation from the hot gas are estimated to have led to a peak heating rate of around 100 W (Watt) cm², comparable to the heat flux experienced by Mars Pathfinder. *In Zimbabwe, opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai is first arrested, then released.

These migrants founded mining towns which quickly grew to become major industrial centers such as Karaganda (1934), Zhezkazgan (1938), Temirtau (1945) and Ekibastuz (1948). In 1955 town of Baikonur was built to support the Baikonur Cosmodrome to this day its administered by Russia. Many more Russians arrived in the years 1953-1965,during the so-called Virgin Lands Campaign of Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev. Still more settlers came in the late 1960s and 70s, when the government paid bonuses to workers participating in a program to relocate Soviet industry close to the extensive coal, gas, and oil deposits of Central Asia. By 1979 ethnic Russians in Kazakhstan numbered about 5,500,000, almost 40 % of the total population. In December 1986 Soviet premier Mikhail Gorbachev appointed Gennady Kolbin, with no ties to the republic as the first secretary of the Central Committee of Communist Party of Kazakh SSR, breaking with a tradition of ethnic Kazakh dominance in the local administration. Following several incidents of ethnic unrest in 1989, Kolbin was replaced by Nursultan Nazarbayev who following the dissolution of the Soviet Union became the president of independent Kazakhstan.
