. At the same time, social changes brought about by urbanization, emigration, the growth of the working class, and the emergence of a sizable middle class put new pressures on the political system to liberalize. Instead, Salazar increased repression, and the regime became even more rigid and ossified (Wiktionary:ossified).

god (Shing Wong) for all major cities in mainland China to govern and look after their land. Hong Kong had no appointed magistrate and therefore no protection of a Shing Wong. In Mongolia's time under the Qing dynasty, a number of Chinese novels were translated into Mongolian (Mongolian language). At the same time, social discontent and an awakening Mongol nationalism lead to the creation of works like Injanash (Vanchinbalyn Injinash)'s historical novel ''Blue Chronicle'' or the stories about "Crazy" Shagdar. Walther Heissig, ''Mongolische Literatur'', in Michael Weiers (editor), ''Die Mongolen, Beiträge zu ihrer Geschichte und Kultur'', Darmstadt 1986, p. 70-85 Da Sheng Men Da Sheng Men, or "Great Sage" Kung Fu, was developed near the end of the Qing dynasty (1911) by a fighter named Kou Si (Kau Sei) from a small village in Northern China (Northern and southern China). Legend states that while serving a sentence in prison, he observed a group of monkeys from his cell. As he studied their movements and mannerisms, he found that they combined well with his own Di Tang style. While exact circumstances of Kou Si's inspiration remain legend, upon his release he developed his new style of fighting and dubbed it 'Da Sheng Men' (Great Sage Style) in honor of the Monkey King Sun Wukong in the Buddhist tale ''Journey to the West''. Chinese history is not as neat as is quite often described and it was rare for one dynasty to change peacefully into the next. Dynasties were often established before the overthrow of an existing regime, or continued for a time after they had been defeated. For example, the conventional date 1644 marks the year in which the Manchu Qing dynasty armies occupied Beijing and brought Qing rule to China proper, succeeding the Ming dynasty. However, the Qing dynasty itself was established in 1636 (or even 1616, albeit under a different name), while the last Ming dynasty pretender was not deposed until 1662. This change of ruling houses was a messy and prolonged affair, and the Qing took almost twenty years to extend their control over the whole of China. It is therefore inaccurate to assume China changed suddenly and all at once in the year 1644. Amid heightening tensions, the Soviet Union and China began border talks. The Chinese position was that the 19th-century border treaties, concluded by the Qing dynasty China and the Tsarist Russia, were "unequal (Unequal Treaties)", and amounted to unfair annexation of the Chinese territory. Moscow could not accept this interpretation. By 1964 the two sides were able to reach a preliminary agreement on the eastern section of the border, including Zhenbao Island, which, it was agreed, would be handed over to the Chinese side. thumb right Heshen (File:Heshen.jpg), a powerful official of the ''Qianlong'' era was of the Niohuru clan The '''Niohuru''' or '''Niuhuru''' Clan (鈕祜祿氏; meaning "wolf" in the Manchu language) were a powerful Manchu clan belonging to the Plain Red Banner (Eight Banners) during the Qing dynasty in China. A shortened version of this surname of "Niu" can be commonly found in the modern day province of Jiangxi (in south central China) after the partial migration of this clan to that province in the early 19th century. thumb upright 1.5 Convention of retrocession of the Liaotung peninsula (File:Convention of retrocession of the Liatung Peninsula 8 November 1895.jpg), 8 November 1895. The ) is a palace in the Forbidden City in Beijing, China. It is the largest of the three halls of the Inner Court (the other two being the Hall of Union and the Palace of Earthly Tranquility), located at the northern end of the Forbidden City. During the Qing dynasty, the palace often served as the Emperor's audience hall, where he held council with the Grand Council. History The Beijing–Shanghai railway is composed of three sections. These three sections are some of the earliest railways in China, built before 1910 during the Qing dynasty. The first section is from Beijing to Tianjin, constructed as part of the Imperial Railways of Northern China between 1897 and 1900.


Mobile, Alabama

;progress1" During this time the city received $3 million in federal grants for harbor improvements to deepen the shipping channels in the harbor. During and after World War I, manufacturing became increasingly vital to Mobile's economic health, with shipbuilding and steel production being two of the most important. During this time, social justice and race relations in Mobile worsened, however. The state passed a new constitution in 1901 that disenfranchised most blacks and many poor whites (Disfranchisement after Reconstruction era); and the white-dominated legislature passed other discriminatory legislation. In 1902 the city government passed Mobile's first segregation (racial segregation) ordinance, one that segregated the city streetcars. It legislated what had been informal practice, enforced by convention. Mobile's African-American population responded to this with a two-month boycott, but the law was not repealed. After this, Mobile's ''de facto'' segregation was increasingly replaced with legislated segregation as whites imposed Jim Crow laws to maintain dominance. The red imported fire ant was first introduced into the United States via the Port of Mobile. Sometime in the late 1930s they came ashore off South American cargo ships. They were carried in the soil used as ballast on those ships. http: chppm-www.apgea.army.mil documents FACT RedImportedFireAntsJusttheFacts-Sep2007.pdf thumb A Liberty ship (File:Liberty ship at sea.jpg) of the type built at Alabama Drydock and Shipbuilding Company during World War II. 20 were completed in Mobile. thumb The SS Hat Creek SS ''Hat Creek'' (File:US T2 WW2 tanker Hat Creek.JPG), a T2 tanker completed by Alabama Drydock and Shipbuilding Company in 1943. The company built 102 of these oil tankers during the war. World War II led to a massive military effort causing a considerable increase in Mobile's population, largely due to the massive influx of workers coming to work in the shipyards and at the Brookley Army Air Field (Brookley Air Force Base). Thomason, Michael. ''Mobile : the new history of Alabama's first city'', pages 213–217. Tuscaloosa: University of Alabama Press, 2001. ISBN 0-8173-1065-7 Between 1940 and 1943, more than 89,000 people moved into Mobile to work for war effort industries. Mobile was one of eighteen United States cities producing Liberty ships. Its Alabama Drydock and Shipbuilding Company (ADDSCO) supported the war effort by producing ships faster than the Axis powers (Axis powers of World War II) could sink them. ADDSCO also churned out a copious number of T2 tankers for the War Department. Gulf Shipbuilding Corporation, a subsidiary of Waterman Steamship Corporation, focused on building freighters (Cargo ship), Fletcher class destroyers, and minesweepers (Minesweeper (ship)). The years after World War II brought about changes in Mobile's social structure and economy. Replacing shipbuilding as a primary economic force, the paper and chemical industries began to expand. No longer needed for defense, most of the old military bases were converted to civilian uses. Following the war, in which many African Americans had served, they stepped up their activism to gain equal rights and social justice, especially in the South. The city of Mobile police force and Spring Hill College were integrated during the 1950s. Unlike the rest of the state, the city buses and lunch counters voluntarily desegregated by the early 1960s. The Alabama legislature passed the Cater Act in 1949 allowing cities and counties to set up industrial development boards (IDB) to issue municipal bonds as incentives to attract new industry into their local areas. The city of Mobile did not establish a Cater Act board until 1962. George E. McNally, Mobile's first Republican mayor since Reconstruction, was the driving force behind its creation. The Mobile Area Chamber of Commerce, believing its members were better qualified to attract new businesses and industry to the area, considered the the new IDB as a serious rival. After several years of political squabbling, the Chamber of Commerce emerged victorious. While McNally's IDB prompted the Chamber of Commerce to become more proactive in attracting new industry, the chamber effectively shut Mobile city government out of economic development decisions. Bill Patterson, "The Founding of the Industrial Development Board of the City of Mobile: The Port City's Reluctant Use of Subsidies", ''Gulf South Historical Review'' 2000 15(2): 21–40, In 1963 three African-American students brought a case against the Mobile County School Board for being denied admission to Murphy High School (Murphy High School (Alabama)). Thomason (2001), ''Mobile'', pp. 260–261 This was nearly a decade after the United States Supreme Court had ruled in ''Brown v. Board of Education'' (1954) that segregation of public schools was unconstitutional. The federal district court ordered that the three students be admitted to Murphy for the 1964 school year, leading to the desegregation of Mobile County's school system. The Civil Rights Movement gained passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Voting Rights Act of 1965, eventually ending legal segregation and regaining effective suffrage for African Americans. Mobile's economy was dealt a severe blow in 1969 with the closing of Brookley Air Force Base. The closing left 10% of the city's workforce unemployed. This and other factors ushered in a period of economic depression that lasted through the 1970s. thumb left Downtown in 2008, as seen from Cooper Riverside Park.

Beginning in the late 1980s, newly elected mayor Mike Dow and the city council began an effort termed the "String of Pearls Initiative" to make Mobile into a competitive city. Lt. Beedy said that if the fire had gotten worse than it was, there could have been injuries or deaths, saying "He endangered a lot of people." According to Lt. Beedy, building security cameras caught Shorrosh on camera entering and exiting the trash room of the building. Police Chief David Carpenter told WKRG (w:WKRG) ''News 5'', the CBS (w:CBS) affiliate in Mobile (w:Mobile, Alabama), that Shorrosh used an accelerant (w:accelerant) to start the fire, in what police believe was an attempt to burn the building down.
