On this route he conquered the cities of Curiati (Kuryat), Muscat (Muscat, Oman) in July 1507 and Khor Fakkan, accepting the submission of the cities of Kalhat and Sohar. On September 25 they arrived with a fearsome reputation at Ormuz and soon captured the city (Capture of Ormuz (1507)), which agreed to become a tributary state for the Portuguese king. A few days later, the king of Ormuz was met by an envoy demanding the payment of tribute to shah Ismail I from Persia. He was sent back with the answer that the only tribute would be in cannon-balls and guns, thus beginning the connection between Albuquerque and Shah Ismail I (often named Xeque Ismael).

PIDE

, the PCP played a major role in the opposition to the dictatorial regime of António de Oliveira Salazar. During the five-decades-long dictatorship, the party was constantly suppressed by the political police, the PIDE, which forced its members to live in clandestine status under the threat of arrest, torture, and murder. After the bloodless Carnation Revolution in 1974, which overthrew the 48-year regime, the 36 members of party's Central Committee had, in the aggregate, experienced more than 300 years in jail.

Adwa

OF DEATH Shire also played a major role in the later part of the Ethiopian Civil War. Following the massive Ethiopian defeat at the Battle of Afabet in March 1988, the TPLF launched a series of offensives, in which they destroyed government forces stationed at Rama (Rama, Ethiopia), Adwa, Seleh Leha, and Shire. Only about 200 soldiers of the 17th Army Division were able to evacuate Shire and fall back to Gondar. This led to the raising of the Third Revolutionary Army, composed of the 603rd, 604th and 605th core armies. Between 19 June and 3 July 1988 the 604th was able to regain control over 12 districts, and entered Shire with no significant resistance from TPLF forces. However, due to unrest amongst the government soldiers at Addi Hageray, which permitted the TPLF to attack and occupy that town, the 604th was unable to advance again until 28 December. This led to the Battle of Shire, which ended on 19 February 1989 as a victory for the TPLF. Although Shire had been the headquarters of the Third Revolutionary Army at the beginning of the battle, at the end the remaining units were retreating towards Enda Aba Guna. Tekeste Melake, "The Battle of Shire", ''Ethiopian Review'', 24 September 2008 (accessed 30 July 2009) In 1825, Bofu abdicated in favor of his son, Abba Bagibo, under whose rule Limmu-Ennarea reached the peak of its existence. Due to wars in neighboring Jimmu, merchants used the trade route through his kingdom to gain access to Kaffa. Abba Bagibo made a concerted effort to promote this trade, both with beneficial policies (e.g., offering security from bandits to traders, and lower tariffs) and with coercive ones (requiring merchants from Gondar, Adwa, Derita (Derita, Ethiopia) and Dawe (Dawe, Ethiopia) to meet their counterparts from Kaffa and further south at Saqqa). thumb Princess Aster (File:Princess Aster00.jpg) Mikael was born to Abeto Hezeqeyas Wolde Hawaryot and Woizero Ishate Mariam, the daughter of Azzaz Yakub in the district of Na'eder (Naeder Adet). Both of his parents claimed descent from the Solomonic dynasty through his ancestor ''Ras'' Faris the Great, and his father used the title ''Abeto'', a prince of imperial cadet line. Mikael's first official wife was Woizero Walatta Gabr'el (died at Adwa after 1766); his second was Woizero Aster (Aster Iyasu), daughter of Empress Mentewab. '''Princess Wolete Israel Seyoum''' (1906 – 1988), was the daughter of ''Leul Ras (Ethiopian aristocratic and religious titles)'' Seyoum Mengesha (Seyum Mangasha), Prince of Tigray (Tigray Province), and great-granddaughter of Emperor Yohannes IV of Ethiopia. She was thus the sister of ''Leul Ras'' Mengesha Seyoum (Mangasha Seyum). She was first married to the much older ''Dejazmach (Ethiopian aristocratic and religious titles)'' Gebre Selassie Baria Gabr of Adwa by whom she had a son, ''Dejazmach'' Zewde Gebre Selassie. She was widowed not long after the birth of her son. She then married Crown Prince Asfaw Wossen (Amha Selassie) in 1931. The marriage of Crown Prince Asfaw Wossen and Princess Wolete Israel was part of Emperor Haile Selassie's efforts at forging closer bonds between the western Tigrean branch of the Imperial family and his own Shewan branch. At the same time that Princess Wolete Israel married the Crown Prince, her cousin (and her father's rival for primacy in Tigray), ''Dejazmach'' Haile Selassie Gugsa of the eastern Tigrean branch of the Imperial dynasty was married to the Emperor's daughter Princess Zenebework. It was hoped that these marriages would ensure closer bonds between the two rival princely houses of Tigray with the Emperor's family. Princess Wolete Israel and Prince Asfaw Wossen had a daughter, Princess Ijigayehu (Princess Ijigayehu Amha Selassie). Wikipedia:Adwa Commons:Category:Adwa

The Swift and Sidekick were cousins to GM's Geo Metro and Geo Tracker and were mostly produced in Ingersoll (Ingersoll, Ontario), Ontario, Canada by Suzuki and GM's joint venture, CAMI. The Swift GT GTi and 4-door models were imported from Japan. Negative evaluations from Consumer Reports of the Suzuki Samurai led to some temporary setbacks at American Suzuki as annual sales in the following years dropped to below 20,000 units.

The metal bodies are made at CAMI, trucked two hours east to Oshawa, where they are inserted on the conveyor just before the paint shop. The bodies are painted and then go through the general assembly process at the Oshawa plant. The entire process was developed as quick way to respond to high demand for the Equinox product. The CAMI facility does make Equinox and GMC Terrain from start to finish at their own plant, but they did not have the capacity to put more bodies through paint and general assembly. - Ingersoll (Ingersoll, Ontario) Paul Holbrough (X) -
