to residents every day. During the "Summer of Love", psychedelic rock music was entering the mainstream, receiving more and more commercial radio airplay. The Scott McKenzie song "San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)," written by John Phillips (John Phillips (musician)) of The Mamas & the Papas, became a hit (chart hit) single (single (music)) in 1967. The Monterey Pop Festival in June further cemented the status of psychedelic music as a part of mainstream culture and elevated local Haight bands such as the Grateful Dead, Big Brother and the Holding Company and Jefferson Airplane to national stardom. A July 7, 1967, ''Time'' magazine (Time (magazine)) cover story on "The Hippies: Philosophy of a Subculture," an August CBS News television report on "The Hippie Temptation"and other major media interest in the hippie subculture exposed the Haight-Ashbury district to enormous national attention and popularized the counterculture movement across the country and around the world. The Summer of Love attracted a wide range of people of various ages: teenagers and college students drawn by their peers and the allure of joining a cultural utopia; middle-class vacationers; and even partying military personnel from bases within driving distance. The Haight-Ashbury could not accommodate this rapid influx of people, and the neighborhood scene quickly deteriorated. Overcrowding, homelessness, hunger, drug problems, and crime afflicted the neighborhood. Many people simply left in the fall to resume their college studies.

(Photo by Arnold Genthe (Image:Chinatownsf-large1.jpg)) It was during the 1860s to the 1880s when San Francisco began to transform into a major city, starting with massive expansion in all directions, creating new neighborhoods such as the Western Addition (Western Addition, San Francisco), the Haight-Ashbury, Eureka Valley (Eureka Valley, San Francisco), the Mission District (Mission District, San Francisco), culminating in the construction of Golden Gate Park in 1887. The City's famous Cable Cars (San Francisco cable car system) were built around this time, a unique invention devised by Andrew Smith Hallidie in order to traverse the City's steep hills while connecting the new residential developments. San Francisco grew in cultural prominence at this time as famous writers Mark Twain, Bret Harte, Ambrose Bierce, Rudyard Kipling, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Oscar Wilde spent time in the city, while local characters developed such as Emperor Norton. In 1967, thousands of young people entered the Haight-Ashbury district during what became known as the Summer of Love. The San Francisco Sound emerged as an influential force in rock music (rock and roll), with such acts as Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead achieving international prominence. These groups blurred the boundaries between folk, rock and jazz traditions and further developed rock's lyrical content. The CWLF attracted into its membership many Christians and new converts who were interested in its ministry objectives. Among those who were attracted were three men who later collaborated in the formation of the SCP: Brooks Alexander, David Fetcho (who named the ministry), and Bill Squires. Both Alexander and Fetcho were converts to Christianity from the counterculture. Alexander had participated in the psychedelic drug usage of the counterculture, was an initiate of Transcendental Meditation, and lived in the famous Haight-Ashbury community in San Francisco.

Socialist Republic of Croatia

is formally abolished in November 1945. Croatia is a socialist republic within the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, the Socialist Republic of Croatia. The state is headed by the President of the Presidency of Croatia. During his career in what was then Socialist Republic of Croatia within Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, he made more than one hundred records (Gramophone record), mostly singles (single (music)) and schlagers. In his own country, the most memorable of his many schlagers might be ''Vraćam se Zagrebe tebi'' (Coming Back to You, My Zagreb), ''Ta tvoja ruka mala'' (That Little Hand of Yours), and ''Tiho plove moje čežnje'' (Silent Sail of My Yearnings).But most of all, his song,schlager, "Samo jednom se ljubi", remains as maybe most famous song i Ex-Yugoslavia countries i.e. Real Evergreen. One more thing in favour of that song. There is no other singer who had courrage to sing that song in public or record it! It is unknown why "Samo jednom se ljubi" was not sung in pther languages. At the end of the war, the communist dominated Partisans (Partisans (Yugoslavia)) prevailed and the region was part of the People's Republic of Croatia until 7 April 1963, when the federal republic changed its name to the Socialist Republic of Croatia. The autonomous political organisations of the region were also suppressed by Tito (along with others such as the Croatian Spring); however, the Yugoslav constitutions of 1965 and 1974 did give substantial rights to national minorities including the Serbs in SR Croatia. 220px thumb right Juraj Dobrila University of Pula Pula University (File:Pula University.JPG) building. For several years after 1945, Pula was administered by the United Nations. Istria was partitioned into occupation zones until the region became officially united with the rest of Croatia (Socialist Republic of Croatia) within the SFR Yugoslavia (Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) on 15 September 1947. Pula formed an enclave of the ''Zone "A"'' defined by the Morgan Line within SFR Yugoslavia (Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia), occupied by a company of the United States 351st Infantry and a British battalion (British Battalion) of the 24th Guards Brigade (Brigade of Guards). When the city was ceded to SR Croatia (Socialist Republic of Croatia), a republic of SFR Yugoslavia (Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia), upon the ratification of the Italian Peace Treaty (Paris Peace Treaties, 1947) on 15 September 1947, creating the Free Territory of Trieste, its population of 45,000 was largely made up of ethnic Italians. However, between December 1946 and September 1947, most of the city's Italian residents opted to emigrate to Italy during the Istrian exodus: on 18 August 1946 it was the site of the Vergarola explosion and on 10 February 1947 an Italian woman named Maria Pasquinelli shot British general De Winton. During the Axis (Axis powers) occupation of Yugoslavia from 1941, the Ustase regime gave the island, together with most of Dalmatia, to Italy. After the Armistice between Italy and the Allied powers in 1943, it was briefly held by the Yugoslav Partisans who enjoyed considerable support in the region. Korčula was then occupied by Germany and finally liberated in 1944. With the liberation of Yugoslavia in 1945, the ''Federal People's Republic of Yugoslavia'' was formed, and Korčula became a part of the People's Republic of Croatia (History of Croatia), one of the six Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. The state changed the name to Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in 1953, and so did the Republic into Socialist Republic of Croatia. After 1991, the island became a part of the independent Republic of Croatia (Croatia), recognized in 1992. birth_date Security situation in Yugoslavia at the time In addition to political turbulence in each of the country's six constituent republics, the security situation in SFR Yugoslavia was deteriorating as well. Incidents were especially frequent in the Socialist Republic of Croatia where the two constituent ethnic groups Croats and Serbs (Serbs of Croatia) began clashing following the May 1990 election victory of nationalist Croatian Democratic Union (HDZ) that pursued the separatist agenda of breaking away from SFR Yugoslavia. Son of Mile, was born on June 12, 1959 in Đakovo, in the then Socialist Republic of Croatia, Yugoslavia. He graduated from the Economics Faculty (University of Mostar) in Mostar, in the then Socialist Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and obtained his master's and doctor’s degrees at the Economics Faculty (University of Sarajevo) in Sarajevo. He served for a time as President of the Executive Council of Mostar Municipality. In 1989, he became the Vice-President of the Government of Bosnia and Herzegovina and, in late 1990, he became its acting President. On 15 May 1992, Mate Boban appointed Jadranko Prlić head of the HVO Department of Finance, and on 14 August 1992, Mate Boban appointed Jadranko Prlić President of Herceg-Bosna's supreme executive, administrative and defence body - the HVO. After the Croatian Community of Herceg-Bosna became the Croatian Republic of Herzeg-Bosnia in late August 1993, Jadranko Prlić's title or position changed from President to Prime Minister (with his functions remaining largely the same). The Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia was not a part of the Warsaw Pact but pursued its own version of "Communism" (Titoism) under Josip Broz Tito. It was a multi-ethnic state, and the tensions between ethnicities first escalated with the so-called Croatian Spring of 1970–71, a movement for greater autonomy of Croatia (Socialist Republic of Croatia), which was suppressed. In 1974 there followed constitutional changes devolving some of the federal powers to the constituent republics and provinces. After Tito's death in 1980 ethnic tensions grew, first in Albanian-majority Kosovo (Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo#History). In late 1980s Serbia (Socialist Republic of Serbia)n leader Slobodan Milošević used the Kosovo crisis to stoke up Serb nationalism and attempt to consolidate and dominate the country, which alienated the other ethnic groups. *Albanians are committing genocide against Serbs in Kosovo (Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo) (pgs. 41, 56 of memorandum) *Slovenia (Socialist Republic of Slovenia) and Croatia (Socialist Republic of Croatia) are taking control of the Serbian economy.

Coventry

first was "1980's Teddy Boy", and later came "Concrete Jungle" which was recorded (sound recording and reproduction) by The Specials for their debut album, ''Specials (Specials (album))'' (1979). The Specials version of "Concrete Jungle" was eventually released as a single (single (music)) by Chrysalis Records. Early life Staple was born in Manchester (Manchester Parish, Jamaica), Jamaica. At the age of five, Neville left Jamaica to live in the English town of Rugby, Warwickshire but later moved to Coventry. He was initially active in the sound system scene forming his own crew called "Jah Baddis". Neville was a regular fixture at the Locarno ballroom in Coventry where he met its resident DJ, Pete Waterman. Pete was heavily involved in the seventies reggae scene before going on to become a major pop producer in the 1980s. Pete has written the foreword to Neville's biography - "Original Rude Boy" - and briefly managed The Specials. Pete Waterman's biog outline File:Henry_Parkes_home.jpg right thumb Birthplace in Canley, Coventry, England. Parkes was born in Canley, Warwickshire (now a suburb of Coventry), England and christened (Infant baptism) in the nearby village of Stoneleigh (Stoneleigh, Warwickshire). His father, Thomas Parkes, was a small-scale tenant farmer. Of his mother, little is known, although when she died in 1842, Parkes would say of her that he felt as if a portion of this world's beauty was lost to him forever. He received little schooling, and at an early age was working on a rope-walk for four pence a day. His next work was in a brickyard, and later on he tells us he ''"was breaking stones on the Queen's highway with hardly enough clothing to protect me from the cold"''. He was then apprenticed to John Holding, a bone and ivory turner at Birmingham, and probably about the year 1832 joined the Birmingham political union. Between that year and 1838 he was associated with the political movements that were then endeavouring to better the conditions endured by the working classes. He is also commemorated in Canley, Coventry by the naming of a road (Sir Henry Parkes Road) and a primary school (Sir Henry Parkes Primary School). Canley railway station also commemorates the link with Sir Henry Parkes with Australian-themed decor. Ribbon-weaving is known to have been established near St. Etienne (dep. Loire) as early as the 11th century, and that town has remained the headquarters of the industry. During the Huguenot troubles, ribbon-weavers from St. Etienne settled at Basel and there established an industry which in modern times has rivalled that of the original seat of the trade. Krefeld is the centre of the German ribbon industry, the manufacture of black velvet ribbon being there a specialty. In England Coventry is the most important seat of ribbon-making, which is also prosecuted at Norwich and Leicester. Since leaving the Socialist Alliance, the Socialist Party has run candidates in elections as ''Socialist Alternative''. Following the local elections in 2007 (United Kingdom local elections, 2007), it had two councillors in St. Michael's (St. Michael's, Coventry) in Coventry (including Dave Nellist), and two in Telegraph Hill (Telegraph Hill, Lewisham) ward in Lewisham, South London. A member of the party was also elected in Huddersfield but stood under the Save Huddersfield NHS party banner. In the local elections of 2010 (United Kingdom local elections, 2010), however, the party lost one of the two councillors in Coventry and both councillors in Lewisham.
