acts green

;Greenwald, 33" Greenwald, p. 33. In 1994, the same year that Jawbreaker's ''24 Hour Revenge Therapy'' and Sunny Day Real Estate's ''Diary'' were released, pop punk acts Green Day and The Offspring had mutiplatinum (Oro album) successes with their respective albums ''Dookie'' and ''Smash (Smash (The Offspring album))''. In the wake of the underground going mainstream, over the next several years emo as a genre retreated, reformed, and morphed into a national subculture, then eventually something more. Drawing inspiration from bands like Jawbreaker, Drive Like Jehu, and Fugazi, the new sound of emo was a mixture of hardcore (hardcore punk)'s passion and indie rock's intelligence, bearing the anthemic power of punk rock and its do-it-yourself (Do it yourself) work ethic but with smoother songs, sloppier melodies, and yearning vocals. Greenwald, pp. 34–35. Many of the new emo bands originated from the Midwestern (Midwestern United States) and Central United States, such as Braid (Braid (band)) from Champaign (Champaign, Illinois)-Urbana, Illinois, Christie Front Drive from Denver, Colorado, Mineral (Mineral (band)) from Austin, Texas, Jimmy Eat World from Mesa, Arizona, The Get Up Kids from Kansas City, Missouri, and The Promise Ring from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Greenwald, p. 34. According to Andy Greenwald, "This was the period when emo earned many, if not all, of the stereotypes that have lasted to this day: boy-driven, glasses-wearing, overly sensitive, overly brainy, chiming-guitar-driven college music." The Hall of Fame was founded as the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame in 1996 by the Kansas City Science Fiction and Fantasy Society (Kansas City, Missouri) and the Center for the Study of Science Fiction at the University of Kansas. The Chairmen were Keith Stokes (1996–2001) and Robin Wayne Bailey (2002–present). Only authors were eligible for recognition and four were inducted annually. *Robert (Bobby) Cosgrove Greenlease Jr. (Bobby Greenlease) (1953). The six-year-old boy was kidnapped and immediately murdered 28 September 1953 in Kansas City, Missouri by Bonnie Heady and Carl A. Hall. They then demanded and were paid a $600,000 ransom by the boy's father, a wealthy automobile dealer. Notable in the case was that more than half of the ransom money was stolen by a corrupt police officer and never recovered. Ramp metering was first implemented in 1963 on the Eisenhower Expressway (Interstate 290 (Interstate 290 (Illinois))) in Chicago by Adolf D. May, now a UC Berkeley professor Adolf D.

Since then ramp-meters have been systematically deployed in many urban areas including Los Angeles (Los Angeles County, California); San Diego (San Diego, California); Sacramento (Sacramento, California); the San Francisco Bay Area; Fresno (Fresno, California); Seattle (Seattle, Washington); Denver (Denver, Colorado); Phoenix (Phoenix, Arizona); Las Vegas (Las Vegas metropolitan area); Salt Lake City (Salt Lake City, Utah); Portland (Portland, Oregon); Minneapolis-St. Paul; Milwaukee (Milwaukee, Wisconsin); Columbus (Columbus, Ohio); Cincinnati (Cincinnati, Ohio); Houston, Texas Houston ; Atlanta (Atlanta, Georgia); Miami (Miami, Florida); Washington, DC (only along Interstate 395 (Interstate 395 (District of Columbia-Virginia)) and Interstate 66 in Arlington County, Virginia); Kansas City, Missouri; *St. Paul (w:Saint Paul, Minnesota), Minnesota (w:Minnesota) *Kansas City Assembly (w:Kansas City Assembly) of Kansas City (w:Kansas City, Missouri), Missouri (w:Missouri) *Norfolk Assembly of Norfolk (w:Norfolk, Virginia), Virginia (w:Virginia) Still, Harlan was in attendance at Yankee Stadium (w:Yankee Stadium) during the team's Opening Day series this year.

They have also earned 11 other International medals and are the current (2009) Mid-Atlantic District (Mid-Atlantic District (BHS)) chorus champion. In May 2006, the tour was slightly disrupted when lead singer Dave Gahan developed laryngitis during the group's performance at the Starlight Theatre (Starlight Theatre (Kansas City)) in Kansas City, Missouri. Six tracks into the concert, Gahan left the stage for Martin Gore to begin his solo set performance, which was promptly extended by four additional songs until Gahan's condition was clarified. The show was officially cut and the concert to be held the following night in Chicago was cancelled. A press release regarding the cancellations stated that Gahan's voice was "challenged throughout the concert by the unusually cold temperatures at the venue" as well as a result of "coming off three concerts in Mexico." http: www.netmusiccountdown.com inc news_article.php?id 10278 No make-up date was announced to compensate for the axed performance in Kansas City.

'''Interstate 670''' (abbreviated '''I-670''') is a 2.81 mile (4.52 km) connector highway between I-70 (Interstate 70 (Kansas)) in Kansas City, Kansas and I-70 (I-70 (MO)) in Kansas City, Missouri. The highway provides a more direct route through downtown Kansas City than the older mainline I-70, and avoids the sharp turn (and reduced speed limit) of the latter at the west end of the Intercity Viaduct. I-670 is also designated ''Alternate Interstate 70'', one of the few interstates to be designated as an alternate. Interstate 670 also makes up the south side of Kansas City's downtown highway loop (downtown freeway loop (Kansas City)), where it passes under the southern half of H. Roe Bartle Hall (Bartle Hall Convention Center). left thumb 300px I-670 is the multi-lane road going to the right of downtown Kansas City across the West Bottoms by the confluence of the Missouri and Kansas Rivers. I-70 goes to the left of downtown Kansas City close to the bend in the Missouri River (Image:Kaw-point-aerial.jpg) The freeway begins with ramps from I-70 meeting to form I-670 just before a bridge over the Kansas River, which is located just south of the confluence of the Kansas (Kansas River) and Missouri rivers (Missouri River). I-70 (Interstate 70 in Kansas) at that point comprises U.S. Route 24 (U.S. Route 24 in Kansas), U.S. Route 40 (U.S. Route 40 in Kansas), and U.S. Route 169 (U.S. Route 169 in Kansas). The freeway then crosses the Kansas–Missouri state line and enters Kansas City, Missouri. The road then interchanges with Interstate 35 (Interstate 35 in Missouri) before meeting its terminus at I-70 (Interstate 70 in Missouri). The freeway continues as I-70. *St. Paul (w:Saint Paul, Minnesota), Minnesota (w:Minnesota) *Kansas City Assembly (w:Kansas City Assembly) of Kansas City (w:Kansas City, Missouri), Missouri (w:Missouri) *Norfolk Assembly of Norfolk (w:Norfolk, Virginia), Virginia (w:Virginia) Still, Harlan was in attendance at Yankee Stadium (w:Yankee Stadium) during the team's Opening Day series this year.

Storz , who was the director of radio station KOWH (KCRO)-AM in Omaha (Omaha, Nebraska), Nebraska in 1951. At that time typical AM radio programming consisted largely of "block programming" — pre-scheduled, sponsored programs of a wide variety, including radio dramas and variety shows.

Kansas City, Missouri

'''Kansas City''' or '''K.C.''' is a city of 464,310 people and largest municipality in the U.S. (United States) state of Missouri. It is the central city of the Kansas City metropolitan area, a region spanning the Kansas–Missouri border. Founded in the 1830s as a port on the Missouri River and originally called Kansas, this became confusing upon the establishment of Kansas Territory in 1854, creating the name Kansas City to distinguish the two. Sitting on the western border of Missouri, with downtown (Downtown Kansas City) near the confluence of the Kansas (Kansas River) and Missouri Rivers, the modern city encompasses in parts of Jackson (Jackson County, Missouri), Clay (Clay County, Missouri), Cass (Cass County, Missouri), and Platte (Platte County, Missouri) counties. It is one of two county seats of Jackson County. The 18th and Vine Neighborhood (18th and Vine-Downtown East, Kansas City) gave birth to the musical styles of Kansas City jazz and Kansas City blues. It is also known for Kansas City-style barbecue. The area is infamous for the Border War that occurred during the American Civil War, including the Battle of Westport and Bleeding Kansas. Large suburbs include Independence (Independence, Missouri) and Lee's Summit (Lee's Summit, Missouri) in Missouri and Overland Park (Overland Park, Kansas), Olathe (Olathe, Kansas) and Kansas City (Kansas City, Kansas) in Kansas.
