(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.

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.
