He painted with the support of wealthy patrons, creating images of flowers, gardens, religious subjects, and landscapes in the fashions of the Ming Dynasty. He incorporated different techniques into his paintings, and acquired a few wealthy patrons. His talent and versatility allowed him to become regarded as one of the Four Great Masters of the Ming Dynasty. Three of his best patrons were art collectors. One was Chen Guan from Suzhou. The other two were both younger than Qiu: Zhou Fenglai (1523–1555), from nearby Kunshan, and the well-known wealthy collector Xiang Yuanbian, whose home was in Jiaxing in Zhejiang Province. ##Berntsen 's Apostolic Faith church also performed feet washing.

Finally on 21 December of that same year, he entered a church hall one morning in order to pray alone. It was at this time he began experiencing glossolalia, claiming to have been inspired by the Holy Spirit. In 1910 Zhang was baptised in a Suzhou lake by the Apostolic Faith Mission. From that time onward, Zhang resolved to offer himself to the Lord's service. Later that year at Weihsien (Weifang), Zhang established "Jesus' True Church" Chinese pinyin: Yēsū Zhēn Jiàohuì, 耶穌真教會.

Birmingham, Alabama

contender against now-sister station WVTV (WVTV-TV) for the title of the area's leading independent station. The station was known simply as 'TV-24'. By then the station was owned by Arlington Broadcasting, which also owned WTTO Channel 21 Birmingham (Birmingham, Alabama), WQTV (now WBPX) (WBPX-TV) Boston (Boston, Massachusetts) and KNXV Phoenix (Phoenix, Arizona). The latter two were later sold off. MyNetworkTV affiliation (2006-present) On March 2, 2006 Sinclair announced that Channel 24 was to be the Milwaukee affiliate for MyNetworkTV, which was created by Fox Television Stations Group in the wake of the January 24, 2006 announcement that the UPN and WB (The WB) networks would cease operations in September 2006, and merge into one network, The CW. Sister station WVTV, the former WB affiliate, is Milwaukee's CW affiliate. This resulted in the Milwaukee duopoly becoming one of five My Network TV CW duopolies owned and or controlled by Sinclair; the other four are KVMY KVCW in Las Vegas, Nevada, WABM WTTO in Birmingham, Alabama, WUXP WNAB in Nashville, Tennessee and WRDC WLFL in Raleigh (Raleigh, North Carolina) Durham, North Carolina.

(Image:Birmingham District copy.jpg) In 1919, Manning’s talents took him to Birmingham, Alabama, where he worked on a new design for the city. He recommended a radical resource-based plan which included “multiple neighborhood-based centers determined by available resources” (Karson, 2001). He also makes note of the importance of parks throughout the city stating that “the cities that are best designed have about one-eight of their area in parks and about one acre to 75 people” (Manning, 1919). This approach was in direct contrast to the then popular City Beautiful movement which emphasized monumental civic centers and Beaux Arts architecture style public buildings (Karson, 2001). The architectural design of the Chicago Columbian Exposition was based in the City Beautiful movement, but now, on his own, Manning decided on a different course following his own landscape theories which were based on the natural available resources. This idea was the basis for his creation of the “wild garden” which he applied to many of his landscape designs.

NBA Media Ventures, LLC accessdate 2007-04-13 Although there had been earlier attempts at professional basketball leagues, including the American Basketball League (American Basketball League (1925-1955)) and the NBL, the BAA was the first league to attempt to play primarily in large arenas in major cities. During its early years, the quality of play in the BAA was not significantly better than in competing leagues or among leading independent clubs such as the Harlem Globetrotters. For instance, the 1948 ABL finalist Baltimore Bullets (Baltimore Bullets (1944–1954)) moved to the BAA and won that league's 1948 title, and the 1948 NBL champion Minneapolis Lakers (Los Angeles Lakers) won the 1949 BAA title.
