''Albatross'' returned to San Francisco on 11 December 1896 and, after a few weeks of voyage repairs, on 30 December began a provisional examination of the fishing grounds off the coast of Los Angeles County (Los Angeles County, California), Monterey (Monterey, California), and in the vicinity of the Farallon Islands, to gather data for consideration in weighing the desirability of extending the limits of the offshore fisheries. Upon finishing this work on 25 April 1897, the ship began upkeep at San Francisco. In 1822, he arrived in San Pedro (San Pedro, California) and met John Gilroy (Gilroy, California). Livermore worked for a time at Mission San Gabriel and then moved north, working as the mayordomo (ranch foreman) at Rancho Bolsa del Potrero y Moro Cojo of Joaquín de la Torre, near Castroville (Castroville, California). On 20 June 1823, Robert was baptized at the Mission Santa Clara into the Catholic (Catholicism) faith, given the name Juan Bautista Roberto y José. At about the same time, in Monterey (Monterey, California), he requested and was given permission by Governor Pablo Vicente de Solá to remain in California. Early years Alvarado was born in Monterey (Monterey, California), Alta California, to Jose Francisco Alvarado and María Josefa Vallejo. His grandfather Juan Bautista Alvarado accompanied Gaspar de Portolà as an enlisted man in the Spanish (Spain) Army in 1769. His father died a few months after his birth and his mother remarried three years later, leaving Juan Bautista in the care of his grandparents, the Vallejo family. He and Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo grew up together in the Vallejo household. They were both taught by William Edward Petty Hartnell, an English (England) merchant living in Monterey. Arrival in Alta California The pair arrived in Monterey (Monterey, California) in 1822 and, with funding from the company, proceeded to contract with the missions (Spanish missions in California), as they had lots of cattle. Hartnell was personable and successfully persuaded Governor Pablo Vicente de Solá to permit the British subjects to do business and live in Alta California. Governor Luis Antonio Argüello granted them the right to do business in any port in Alta California, whereas other foreigners were restricted to Monterey and San Diego (San Diego, California). Their business did well, but McCulloch soon returned to South America, leaving Hartnell in charge. During this time, he also served as a tutor to prominent families in the area, with Juan Bautista Alvarado and Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo as two of his more notable charges. '''Monterey State Historic Park''' is a historic state park in Monterey (Monterey, California), California. It includes part or all of the '''Monterey Old Town Historic District''', a historic district (historic district (United States)) that includes 17 contributing buildings and was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1970. The grounds include California's first theatre, and the Monterey Customs House, where the American flag was first raised over California. Monterey Bay Aquarium 886 Cannery Row Monterey (Monterey, California) California Website Unlike most of the places with "Carson" in their names in the American West, Carson Hill is not named after explorer Kit Carson, but instead it is named for Sgt. James H. Carson, a member of Colonel Jonathan D. Stevenson's Regiment of First New York Volunteers. He happened to be in Monterey (Monterey, California) when the California Gold Rush started. Carson first made his way to Weber Creek near Placerville (Placerville, California) and then moved south with the Angel and Murphy brothers (founders of Angels Camp (Angels Camp, California) and Murphys (Murphys, California), respectively). After splitting up at what is now Angels Camp, Carson's group headed south and panned at a small tributary of the Stanislaus River, which they found incredibly rich in gold. They named this portion Carson Creek. The expedition started on June 27, 1542 from Barra de Navidad, Jalisco, and sailed along the coast up to Punta del Ano Nuevo, 37° 10' north of Monterey (Monterey, California). The vessels were tossed about, and often separated from each other by the bad weather. Cabrillo died on January 3, 1543, on the Island of San Bernardo, near the channel of Santa Barbara (Santa Barbara, California); but Ferrelo, who succeeded him in command, continued his discoveries northward up to lat. 43°, where he saw the coast of Cape Blanco, later called Cape Orford (Port Orford, Oregon) by George Vancouver. ''Taussig'' remained in the Far East until shortly after the formal surrender ceremony in Tokyo Bay on 2 September. In October, she returned to the United States and began repairs at Seattle (Seattle, Washington). The destroyer remained there until 1 February 1946, when she sailed for a year of duty off the Chinese coast. In March 1947, ''Taussig'' returned to the west coast at San Diego, California Upon her return to the United States, she became a school ship for the General Line School at Monterey (Monterey, California). For the next three years, the destroyer conducted cruises along the west coast familiarizing officers assigned to the school with operations at sea. In addition, she was frequently called upon to take Naval Reservists (United States Navy Reserve) on board for training cruises. The '''Monterey Institute of International Studies''' (MIIS) is a graduate school of Middlebury College, located in Monterey, California, USA. Founded in 1955 and formally declared a Graduate School of Middlebury College in 2010, the Institute specializes in international policy (public policy), environmental policy, international business, language teaching, and translation and interpretation (Language interpretation). *In 1967 (1967 Major League Baseball season), main ''Game of the Week'' was broadcast everywhere except in the two cities playing. Those cities in question got their local crews (for example, Vin Scully and Jerry Doggett calling the May 27 Los Angeles (1967 Los Angeles Dodgers season) San Francisco (1967 San Francisco Giants season) contest on KTTV 11), if it was televised there at all. **The May 6 San Francisco (1967 San Francisco Giants season)-Pittsburgh (1967 Pittsburgh Pirates season) game was shown in Johnstown (Johnstown, Pennsylvania)'s NBC affiliate (WJAC 6), but if you were in the city of Pittsburgh, you needed a ticket to see the game at all. It was also not broadcast on NBC's San Francisco affiliate (KRON 4), but was on NBC's affiliates in Monterey (Monterey, California) (KSBW 8) and Sacramento (KCRA 3). San Rodrigo County As in many Vance novels, the milieu virtually has character status. He has said that San Rodrigo county is a blend of elements of several actual Californian counties, and there are general resemblances to the San Joaquin Valley region in which Vance spent most of his childhood. Moreover the county is given cartographical reality by several maps which appear in the books, from a general view of San Rodrigo County within its borders to street-plans of some of its townships. The chief of these include San Rodrigo, Pleasant Grove, Aurora and Marblestone; the high ground is generally on the west of the county; the principal waterway is Genesee Creek, which debouches into Genesee Slough in the north-east quarter. Roads leave the county boundaries in the direction of real places -- Monterey (Monterey, California), Carmel (Carmel-by-the-Sea, California), Salinas (Salinas, California), San José (San Jose, California) -- and we are informed that from the western border it is only 13 miles to the Pacific Ocean. All of this circumstantial evidence places Joe Bain’s precinct rather precisely on the western edge of the central San Joaquin Valley. In 2005, Steven Miller of the Naval Research Laboratory in Monterey, California, was able to match 1995 Satellite images with a first-hand account of a merchant ship. U.S. Defense Meteorological Satellite Program showed the milky area to be approximately 15,400-km² (roughly the size of Connecticut). The luminescent field was observed to glow over three consecutive nights.

Bánáthy, a long-standing member of the Hungarian Scout Association Abroad (Külföldi Magyar Cserkészszövetség), traveled from the Monterey, California in the United States to Hungary following its renewed freedom. Bánáthy had attended the 4th World Scout Jamboree held at Godollo in 1933. He later became personal friends with General Kisbarnaki Ferenc Farkas, Chief Scout of Hungary, and was also Director of Leadership Development at the Royal Ludovika Akademia for the Hungarian Boy Scout Association (Magyar Cserkészszövetség) during World War II. Bánáthy helped restart the Hungarian Scout Association. Ok, ‘Joe the painter’… While the Star Beacon article was done quite well as a whole, the wording in this part about ‘the presidency and house painting’ is a bit too abbreviated, and a bit too disjointed. The more accurate version is… I have a degree in journalism from Bowling Green State University (w:Bowling Green State University) and have worked for several intermediate sized newspapers in Ohio. A ways into this, I changed professions and became a licensed chemical dependency counselor who started one of the first outpatient treatment programs in the Midwest for people who were raised in addictive dysfunctional families. (As an aside, during Campaign 2000, I told CBS News (w:CBS News) in Monterey (w:Monterey, California), that: “To heal the country, we have to heal the family.” After working in the chemical dependency field for about eight years, I felt a spiritual prompting – as other people at times feel spiritual promptings to do any number of things – to leave this profession and go out on the road to look for people trying to make a difference when it came to things like healing the family, saving the environment, helping the poor, creating peace felt compelled to gather these stories, using my journalism background, then share them with others – with the hopes of planting “seeds of change.” After a long, considered discernment process, I decided to go on the road and left Cleveland, in 1990. This was the start of an eight-year research period where I logged close to 100,000 miles. What I learned was a lot of tremendously creative, common sense solutions to practically all the issues of our day. Armed with this, I started to running for president in 1999, and have been doing it ever since (four successive election cycles). In each newspaper interview, each radio show, each speech... I share parts of what I researched with the hopes people will try some of it in their own town, and who knows how far out it will ripple from there. (I found that running for president is a great way to get a message out. And yes, I am indeed trying to win as well. Then I could get the information out a lot quicker, and further.) Now as far as the house painting, because I'm on the road some six to eight months a year campaigning, it's logistically quite hard to hold down a counseling or journalism job. So, instead, I do some part-time house painting to make ends meet. And thus, “Joe the painter.” Note: As an example, in the heart of w:Buffalo, New York Buffalo , I interviewed Dr. Myron Glick who felt his own 'spiritual prompting' to move his family to inner city Buffalo and start the Jericho Road Health Clinic. He uses a minimal sliding fee scale and has seen people from at least 50 different countries (Buffalo is a port city). Why? Because he's Christian (w:Christianity), he told me, and it is Jesus Christ (w:Jesus)' edict that we help the poor. I have shared Dr. Glick's story all over the country, with the hopes of inspiring other doctors to consider doing some version of the same. And each time that happens, I get a component of our healthcare bill passed – and another little kid living below the poverty line gets the medical help they might have otherwise not gotten.

For all such artists the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition was an essential platform, reviewed at huge length in the press, which often alternated ridicule and extravagant praise in discussing works. The ultimate, and very rare, accolade was when a rail had to be put in front of a painting to protect it from the eager crowd; up to 1874 this had only happened to Wilkie's ''Chelsea Pensioners'', Frith's ''The Derby Day'' and ''Salon d'Or'' and Luke Filde's ''The Casuals'' (see below).

Guillaume's nephew and namesake, Guillaume III de Croÿ (William de Croÿ (archbishop)) (1498-1521), was educated in Louvain (Leuven) with Juan Luís Vives, a great philosopher of the time. As it appeared unlikely that he would succeed to the lands of his grandfather, Philippe I, he was destined to the church. Family interests ensured his rapid promotion: he was elected Bishop of Cambrai at the age of 17. Within a year, Charles V (Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor) bestowed upon his young Burgundian friend the archbishopric of Toledo (Toledo, Spain), making him a cardinal and Primate of Spain. This unprecedented move brought Spain to the brink of a civil war. Guillaume accompanied his uncle and Charles to Worms, where on January 6 he died aged 22, following a fall from his horse. His tomb is in the Celestin monastery of Louvain, founded by his father.
