It runs for 2000 feet (600 meters) under College Hill (College Hill, Providence, Rhode Island) on Providence's East Side (East Side, Providence, Rhode Island), with its west end at South Main Street and its east end at Thayer Street. Prior to the construction of the Trolley Tunnel, the steepness of the streets climbing College Hill led to construction of the only cable-car (cable car (railway)) system ever to be built in New England. http: www.cable-car-guy.com html ccoth.html#pri http: www.quahog.org factsfolklore index.php?id 100 * People's Republic of China President (President of the People's Republic of China) Hu Jintao meets with Canadian (Canada) Prime Minister (Prime Minister of Canada) Paul Martin in Ottawa.

Martin and Hu agree on a new "Strategic Partnership", and sign a series of agreements on transportation, food inspection, and scientific research.

(Fox News) * An earthquake measuring 7.3 on the Richter scale is detected off the eastern coast of Papua New Guinea, though no damage has been recorded. (Manichi Daily News) (BBC) "In these days, the construction and guidance of airships have been improved greatly", wrote ''The Providence Journal'', "and it is supposed, both by the Parisian experts and by the Swedish scientists who have been assisting M. Andree, that the question of a sustained flight in this case will be very satisfactorily answered by the character of the balloon, by its careful guidance and, providing it gets into a Polar current of air, by the elements themselves." ''Providence Journal'', Providence, Rhode Island, January 21, 1896. Both the examples given here come from "The Mystery of Andree", an extensive archive of American newspaper reports from 1896–99. Faith in the experts and in science was common in the popular press, but with international attention came also for the first time informed criticism. Andrée being Sweden's first balloonist, nobody at home had the requisite knowledge to second-guess him about buoyancy or drag ropes; but in Germany and France there were long ballooning traditions and many far more experienced balloonists than Andrée, several of whom expressed scepticism of his methods and inventions. Lundström, p. 28–29 mentions in particular Gross in Germany and the Renard brothers in France. However, just as with the ''Svea'' mishaps, all objections failed to dampen Andrée's optimism. Eagerly followed by national and international media, he began negotiations with the well-known aeronaut and balloon builder Henri Lachambre in Paris, world capital of ballooning, and ordered a varnished three-layer silk balloon, 20.5 meters (67 ft) in diameter, from his workshop. The balloon, originally called ''Le Pôle Nord'' (French for "The North Pole"), was to be renamed ''Örnen'' (Swedish (Swedish language) for "The Eagle"). In 2000, he traveled to the United States on an invitation from the Providence (Providence, Rhode Island) Latino Film Festival. While visiting New York, he met Anna Strasberg of the Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute and after screening his thesis film was offered a scholarship. While attending the Strasberg Institute Coyula made his first feature, ''Red Cockroaches'' (2003), for less than $2000 over a two year period. The film was described by ''Variety (Variety (magazine))'' as "a triumph of technology in the hands of a visionary with know-how..." The film won over twenty awards in Film Festivals around the world. Some examples of made members who are not of full Italian descent include John A. Gotti, whose mother was of Russian (Russian people) descent, and "Cadillac" Frank Salemme (Frank Salemme), former boss of the Patriarca (Patriarca crime family) family in Providence, Rhode Island, who was half Irish (Irish people). *'''October 12:''' A stretch of Interstate 5 in California at the Newhall Pass interchange is shut down due to a fire in a truck tunnel. Updike was born at Providence, Rhode Island. In 1880 he joined the publishers Houghton, Mifflin & Company (Houghton Mifflin), of Boston as an errand boy. He worked for the firm's Riverside Press and trained as a printer but soon moved to typographic design. He set up on his own in 1893, and renamed his enterprise the Merrymount Press in 1896. That same year, one of his first works with the "Merrymount Press" was "In the Old Days, A Fragment" written by his mother, Elisabeth Bigelow Updike, as reminiscences of her youth.

art world

in the artistic community of his adopted home of Providence, Rhode Island and admired within the wider East Coast art world (he won a bronze medal for his large oil "Under the Oaks" at the 1876 Philadelphia Centennial (Centennial Exposition)), he was largely forgotten for almost a century for a complexity of reasons, principally connected with racial prejudice. Early life Lovecraft was born on August 20, 1890, at 9:00 a.m. in his family home at 194 (later 454) Angell Street

1990s, after moving to Providence, Rhode Island, he started producing formally complex, often dark depictions of the urban, suburban, and industrial (Industry) landscape. This work, which grew into the project titled "''Wilderness''" continued to evolve when Raphaelson moved to Brooklyn, New York in 1995. The work went unnoticed by the larger photography art world until it was discovered by Sandra Phillips of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. It later caught the attention of former Museum of Modern Art curator John Szarkowski. Commercial galleries, on the other hand, struggled to find a place for the work, which blurs many lines between classic formal modernism, the politically aware "New Topographics (New Topography)" photography from the 1970s, highly crafted "fine art" photography, and more contemporary explorations of the banal and ironic. History Maclean was guitarist for the post-hardcore band Six Finger Satellite, based in Providence (Providence, Rhode Island), Rhode Island. The band was struck by several tragedies, and Maclean eventually moved into production duties, utilizing his home studio in Providence (nicknamed "The Parlor"). Eventually James Murphy (James Murphy (electronic musician)) joined the band as sound engineer (where he became known for a punishing tour PA (Amplifier) setup, which he nicknamed "Death From Above").

Providence, Rhode Island

'''Providence''' is the capital (Capital city) and most populous city in Rhode Island. Founded in 1636, it is one of the oldest cities in the United States. The city is situated at the mouth of the Providence River, at the head of Narragansett Bay.

Providence was founded by Roger Williams (Roger Williams (theologian)), a religious exile from the Massachusetts Bay Colony. He named the area in honor of "God's merciful Providence" (Divine Providence), which he believed was responsible for revealing such a haven for him and his followers to settle. After being one of the first cities in the country to industrialize, Providence became noted for its jewelry and silverware (silver (household)) industry. Today, the city of Providence is home to eight hospitals and seven institutions of higher learning, which has shifted the city's economy into service industries, though it still retains significant manufacturing activity.

Once nicknamed the "Beehive of Industry", Providence began rebranding itself as the "Creative Capital" in 2009 to emphasize its educational resources and arts community.
