(Honduras), and León (Nicaragua). The governor-captain general-president of Guatemala became the ''superintendente general'' of the territory and functioned as de facto intendant of Guatemala proper. The agricultural, southern region of Costa Rica remained under a civil and military governor with fiscal oversight of only military expenses; the expenses of the civil government were handled by the intendant of León. These intendancies helped shape local political identity and provided the basis of the future nations of Central America. Independence With the removal of Ferdinand VII (Ferdinand VII of Spain) during the Peninsular War, independence movements (1811 Independence Movement) broke out in the intendancies of San Salvador and León in 1811, which were quickly suppressed. In 1812 the Cádiz Cortes divided the region into two provinces: ''Guatemala'' (consisting of Guatemala, Belize, Chiapas, Honduras and El Salvador) and ''Nicaragua y Costa Rica''. These provinces existed from 1812 to 1814 and once again from 1820 to 1821, the period during which the Spanish Constitution of 1812 was in effect. The two provinces elected seven deputies to the Cortes during the first period. Rieu-Millan, Marie Laure. ''Los diputados americanos en las Cortes de Cádiz: Igualdad o independencia''. Madrid: Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, 1990. 43. ISBN 978-84-00-07091-5 The ''jefe político superior'' (governor) of Guatemala remained the Captain General of Central America and Chiapas. The Captaincy General ended in 1821 with the signing of the Act of Independence of Central America, after which the regional elite supported the Plan of Iguala and joined the First Mexican Empire. With the exception of Chiapas, the region peacefully seceded from Mexico in July 1823, establishing the United Provinces of Central America (Federal Republic of Central America). While the region remained politically cohesive for a short time, centrifugal forces soon pulled the individual provinces apart by 1842. References The first insurgent group was formed by Hidalgo, the Spanish viceregal army captain (captain (land)) Ignacio Allende, the militia captain Juan Aldama and "La Corregidora" Josefa Ortiz de Domínguez. Hidalgo and some of his soldiers were captured and executed by firing squad in Chihuahua (Chihuahua, Chihuahua), on July 31, 1811. Following his death, the leadership was assumed by priest José María Morelos, who occupied key southern cities. On October 3, 1821, the Captaincy General of Guatemala (formed of Chiapas, Guatemala, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Honduras) proclaimed its independence from Spain and its incorporation into the Mexican Empire. This region had been formally subject to New Spain throughout the colonial period, but as a practical matter was administered separately. All but Chiapas soon separated from Mexico.
being redeveloped. Isolated in the center of the Bay is Alcatraz, the site of the famous federal penitentiary. The federal prison on Alcatraz Island no longer functions, but the complex is a popular tourist site. Despite its name, Mare Island in the northern part of the bay is a peninsula rather than an island. In the last years of the nineteenth- and first decades of the twentieth-centuries, at the behest of local political officials and following Congressional orders, the US Army Corps began dredging the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers and the deep channels of San Francisco Bay. This work has continued without interruption ever since, an enormous federal subsidy of San Francisco Bay shipping. Some of the dredge spoils were initially dumped in the bay shallows (including helping to create Treasure Island (Treasure Island, California) on the former shoals to the north of Yerba Buena Island) and used to raise an island in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. The net effect of dredging has been to maintain a narrow deep channel—deeper perhaps than the original bay channel—through a much shallower bay. At the same time, most of the marsh areas have been filled or blocked off from the bay by dikes (Dike (construction)). San Francisco is located on the West Coast of the United States at the tip of the San Francisco Peninsula and includes significant stretches of the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay within its boundaries. Several islands (islands of San Francisco Bay)—Alcatraz (Alcatraz Island), Treasure Island (Treasure Island, California) and the adjacent Yerba Buena Island, and a small portion of Alameda Island (Alameda, California), Red Rock Island, and Angel Island (Angel Island, California) are part of the city.

Treasure Island Treasure Island, a completely flat, artificial island attached to Yerba Buena Island, was built specifically for the Exposition near where the Oakland span and the San Francisco span of the Bay Bridge join. Built by the federal government, Treasure Island was to be an airport for Pan American's (Pan American World Airways) Pacific Rim service of flying boats, of which the China Clipper is an example. Due to wartime (Pacific War) needs, it was soon turned into a naval base, which was occupied by the US Navy from 1941 to 1997. ''Treasure Island'', American Heritage Dictionary, Fourth Edition.

A number of other parties operating only at the municipal level contested other town councils, some of them successfully, winning control of councils in Labasa, Lami, Levuka, Nausori, Savusavu, and Tavua. Chaudhry was admitted to the bar as a lawyer on 30 September 2005, by Chief Justice (Chief Justice (Fiji)) Daniel Fatiaki.

In the capital city (Suva), however, elections for the Suva City Council were postponed till 12 November, owing to the death of two candidates; the death of a candidate in Lautoka also resulted in the postponement of the poll in one of the four ward (ward (politics))s. Results by municipality Local as well as national issues featured prominently in the campaign and featured in the results. The results were considered a disappointment for the United Fiji Party (SDL); their first-ever win in Lami was more than off-set by their defeat in Nasinu, whose population is much larger. The Fiji Labour Party (FLP) retained control of Lautoka and won control of Nasinu and Labasa, but failed to win any seats in Ba (Ba Town), prompting party leader Mahendra Chaudhry to cry foul. Chaudhry said he would challenge the result in the courts, alleging that the decision of the electoral commission to disqualify several FLP candidates on technicalities had resulted in the National Federation Party (National Federation Party (Fiji)) winning several seats unopposed. The NFP not only retained control of Ba, but also of Nadi and, in coalition with the SDL, of Sigatoka. Locally-organized ''Ratepayers' Associations'' won in Nausori, Tavua, and Savusavu, while in Levuka, the Balance Party (Balance Party (Fiji)), a purely municipal group, gained control of the Town Council (Levuka Town Council).

The FLP made a clean sweep of the Veitari and Tavakubu wards, winning all four seats in each wards; the 8 seats in total give the FLP majority control of the council, regardless of the result of the special election in Simla. The SDL won the four seats in the Waiyavi ward.

In 1985 the Australian National Line (Australian National Lines) (ANL) announced they would be pulling out of the Bass Strait run, so the Federal Government gave the Tasmanian Government the capital required to buy a suitable ferry, in compensation for placing the environmentally-sensitive Gordon River off-limits to Hydro Tasmania power generation schemes. This ship turned out to be the ''Nils Holgersson'' (3) from the TT-line (Germany) (TT-Line), which also came with an option to buy her sister ship ''Peter Pan'' (2) one year later (which never came to pass).

He later moved to Atlanta Ruckus, but was suspended for the playoffs for failure to comply with the terms of his contract, before joining Miramar Rangers in New Zealand in 1997. He then moved to Ellicott City (Ellicott City, Maryland), Maryland to coach the Maryland Mania, a new professional team in the second division USL A-League, following his officially announced retirement from the professional game.

It changed its name from Jaakko Pöyry Group in 2006. The company is listed on the Helsinki Stock Exchange and is headquartered in Vantaa, Finland. The shooting has prompted public anger in Finland at the media attention directed to it, with a feeling that it undermines the placid reputation of the country. People have questioned the decision of a survey last month to designate Finland as the world's "most livable country". Psycho-social service manager Anna Cantell-Forsbom from nearby Vantaa (w:Vantaa) has spoken out about her view that the shooting was mainly caused by a lack of psychiatric care available to the Finnish youth and therefore did not reflect on Finnish society. The shooting has also prompted a move by the Finnish government (w:Politics of Finland) to raise the legal age for gun ownership from 15 years to 18 years.
