, but Duisburg has never been a coal-mining centre to the same extent as other places in the Ruhr region (German Ruhrgebiet). All blast furnaces in the Ruhr are now located in Duisburg. 49% of all hot metal and 34.4% of all pig-iron (Pig iron) in Germany is produced here (as of 2000). It also has a large brewery, the König Brauerei, located in Duisburg-Beeck, which makes the König Pilsener brand. The University of Duisburg-Essen, with 37,000 students, ranks among the 10 largest German

title -- Corporate and headquarters In mid-2007, American Eagle Outfitters moved its headquarters from Warrendale, Pennsylvania to a more urban location at the SouthSide Works complex in Pittsburgh. The cost of the buildings and adjacent property was approximately $21 million (excluding interior finishing and additional construction costs). The addresses of the buildings are "19 Hot Metal Street" and "77 Hot Metal Street", with the numbers

LTV became the second largest steel producer in the nation. South Side Works was one of three LTV manufacturing facilities in Pittsburgh. One year following the merger, Republic Steel was forced to shut down as a result of foreign competition, high labor costs, and a lack of modern equipment. The property was abandoned until a city county task force revitalized the area just south of downtown, and Pittsburgh-based Oxford Development Company and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center constructed the state-of-the-art UPMC Sports Performance Complex on the most eastern boundary of the site. The Pittsburgh Steelers, of the National Football League, and the NCAA Division I University of Pittsburgh Panthers football teams both utilize the complex's cutting edge equipment and fields as their primary training facility. The '''Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area''' is the metropolitan area surrounding the city of Pittsburgh in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. It is renowned for its industries including steel, glass and oil; its economy also thrives on healthcare, education, technology, robotics, financial services and the film industry. The region is an emergent area for oil and natural gas companies' Marcellus shale production.

'''''Vs.''''' is the debut album by the Boston post-punk band Mission of Burma. It was a fully realized follow-up to their EP (extended play) ''Signals, Calls, and Marches''. It was the only full studio album the band released during the 1980s, as soon afterward they disbanded due to Roger Miller's worsening tinnitus. * Avenue de Gallatin in Geneva, Switzerland * Gallatin Hall at Harvard Business School in Boston, Massachusetts * Gallatin School of Individualized Study at New York University in New York, New York thumb left 300px The 1925-26 New York Americans (Image:1925 26 NYAmericans NHL.jpg) In 1923, Thomas Duggan received options on three NHL franchises for the United States. After selling one to Boston grocery magnate Charles Adams (Charles Adams (ice hockey)), Duggan arranged with Tex Rickard to have a team in Madison Square Garden (Madison Square Garden (1925)). Rickard agreed, but play was delayed until the new Garden was built in 1925. In April of that year, Duggan and Bill Dwyer (Bill Dwyer (gangster)), New York's most-celebrated prohibition bootlegger, were awarded the franchise for New York. Somewhat fortuitously given the shortage of players, the Hamilton Tigers (Hamilton Tigers (ice hockey)), who had finished first the season before, had been suspended from the league after they struck for higher pay. Dwyer duly bought the collective rights to the Tiger players for $ (United States dollar)75,000 and moved them to the newly built Garden. The Tigers franchise was suspended and never returned; the NHL does not consider the Americans to be a continuation of the Tigers--or for that matter, of the Tigers' predecessors, the Quebec Bulldogs. 350px right thumb The New York Americans in 1929. (Image:New York Americans 1929.jpg) Takeover by New York Thomas Duggan of Montreal, owner of the Mount Royal Arena, held two options for expansion teams in the United States. He sold the first of the two to Boston grocery magnate Charles Adams (Charles Adams (ice hockey)), who used it to start the Boston Bruins. He sold the second to a New York (New York City, New York) bootlegger named "Big Bill" Dwyer (Bill Dwyer (mobster)) for a team to play in New York. At the NHL league meeting of April 17, 1925, Dwyer was granted an expansion franchise for New York. During the 18th century, Middletown became the largest and most prosperous settlement in Connecticut. By the time of the American Revolution, Middletown was a thriving port, comparable to Boston or New York in importance, with one-third of its citizens involved in merchant and maritime activities. Slavery was part of the early economy of Middletown; African slaves were brought to the town in 1661 from Barbados; by 1756 Middletown had the third largest African slave population in the state of Connecticut—218 slaves to 5,446 whites. Besides Marblehead Neck, there are also two other villages within town, Devereux to the southeast and Clifton to the southwest. Given its small area, most of the residential land in town is thickly settled. Marblehead's town center is located approximately four miles from the center of Salem (Salem, Massachusetts), sixteen miles northeast of Boston and twelve miles (19 km) southwest of Cape Ann. It is bordered by Swampscott (Swampscott, Massachusetts) to the south, and Salem to the northwest. (Because Salem's water rights extend into Massachusetts Bay, there is no connection between Marblehead and the city of Beverly (Beverly, Massachusetts) across Beverly Harbor.) A 2005 film remake of ''Fever Pitch'', directed by the Farrelly Brothers with Hornby as an executive producer, starred Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore. In this adaptation (based on the 1997 film, not the 1992 book), the action is moved from London to Boston, the focus of the protagonist's obsession is shifted from football (Association football) to baseball, and the story centers on the 2004 Boston Red Sox season, which culminated with the team's first Major League Baseball World Series victory (2004 World Series) in 86 years. This championship was entirely coincidental; the filming of the 2005 version was being done during the 2004 regular season, including scenes filmed at Fenway Park during actual games. As the Red Sox continued to progress through the playoffs, the Farrellys had to rewrite the script to include the historic moment. Fever Pitch was produced by ELC Productions Ltd., Fox 2000 Pictures, Wildgaze Films, Alan Greenspan Productions, and Flower Films. Low fares were causing the company to lose money. In October 1984, it canceled several routes, including Tampa-London. At the same time, the company reoriented its route structure from an east-west alignment to a north-south one, reported Aviation Week & Space Technology. San Juan, Puerto Rico, where the company was building a new hub, was the center of the scheduled network, and by the end of 1985 Arrow Air was connecting the destination with Montreal, New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Baltimore, Orlando (Orlando, Florida), and Miami. In 1985, more than one million people flew Arrow to 245 destinations in 72 countries. The organization has District offices in Boston and Los Angeles, and a national headquarters in New York. There are approximately 11,000 members nationwide. They own and operate a summer camp located in Hopewell Junction, New York called Camp Kinder Ring. An adult vacation facility, Circle Lodge, shares the camp grounds and has bungalows and cottages. *''-(a)n'' (countries continents: Africa → African, Albania → Albanian, America (America (disambiguation)) → American, Armenia → Armenian, Asia → Asian, Australia → Australian, Austria → Austrian, Bosnia → Bosnian, Brunei → Bruneian, Bulgaria → Bulgarian, Burma → Burmese (though see below; Irregular forms), Cambodia → Cambodian, Chile → Chilean, Colombia → Colombian, Costa Rica → Costa Rican, Croatia → Croatian, Cuba → Cuban, El Salvador → Salvadoran, Estonia → Estonian, Ethiopia → Ethiopian, Europe → European, Georgia (Georgia (country)) → Georgian, Germany → German, Guatemala → Guatemalan, Haiti → Haitian, Honduras → Honduran, Hungary → Hungarian, India → Indian, Indonesia → Indonesian, Italy → Italian, Jamaica → Jamaican, Kenya → Kenyan, North South Korea → North South Korean, Laos → Laotian, Latvia → Latvian, Lithuania → Lithuanian, Macedonia (Macedonia (region)) → Macedonian, Malaysia → Malaysian, Mali → Malian, Mexico → Mexican, Mongolia → Mongolian, Morocco → Moroccan, Nicaragua → Nicaraguan, Paraguay → Paraguayan, Romania → Romanian, Russia → Russian, Saudi Arabia → Saudi Arabian, Singapore → Singaporean, Slovakia → Slovakian, Slovenia → Slovenian, South Africa → South African, Sri Lanka → Sri Lankan, Syria → Syrian, United States of America (United States) → American, Uruguay → Uruguayan, Venezuela → Venezuelan; cities states: Arizona → Arizonan, Atlanta → Atlantan, Baltimore → Baltimorean, California → Californian, Catalonia → Catalan, Chicago → Chicagoan, Cincinnati → Cincinnatian, El Paso (El Paso, Texas) → El Pasoan, Louisiana → Louisianian, Miami → Miamian, Minneapolis → Minneapolitan, Minnesota → Minnesotan, Nebraska → Nebraskan, Ottawa → Ottawan, Philadelphia → Philadelphian, Regina (Regina, Saskatchewan) → Reginan, Riga → Rigan, Rome → Roman, San Antonio → San Antonian, San Diego → San Diegan, San Francisco → San Franciscan, San Jose (San Jose, California) → San Josean, Tasmania → Tasmanian, Tucson (Tucson, Arizona) → Tucsonan Tulsa (Tulsa, Oklahoma) → Tulsan, Utah → Utahn) *''-ian'' (countries: Bahamas → Bahamian, Barbados → Bajan, Belarus → Belarusian, Belgium → Belgian, Bermuda → Bermudian, Brazil → Brazilian, Canada → Canadian, Cardiff → Cardiffian, Egypt → Egyptian, Ecuador → Ecuadorian, Iran → Iranian (also "Irani" or "Persian"), Jordan → Jordanian, Panama → Panamanian, Ukraine → Ukrainian; cities states: Adelaide → Adelaidian, Athens → Athenian, Boston → Bostonian, Brisbane → Brisbanian (also "Brisbanite"), Calgary → Calgarian, Coventry → Coventrian, Edmonton → Edmontonian, Florida → Floridian, Fort Worth → Fort Worthian, Gibraltar → Gibraltarian, Hanoi (Vietnam) → Hanoian, Houston → Houstonian, Isles of Scilly → Scillonian, Lethbridge → Lethbridgian, Liverpool → Liverpudlian, Louisville (Louisville, Kentucky) → Louisvillian, New Guinea → New Guinian, Madrid → Madrilenian, Manchester → Mancunian, McKinney (McKinney, Texas) → McKinnian, Melbourne → Melburnian, New Orleans → New Orleanian, Oregon → Oregonian, Paris → Parisian, Peterborough → Peterborian, Phoenix (Phoenix, Arizona) → Phoenician, Saskatoon (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan) → Saskatonian (Saskabusher (Amelanchier alnifolia)), Toronto → Torontonian, Washington (Washington, D.C.) → Washingtonian, Wellington → Wellingtonian) *''-in(e)'' (Florence → Florentine (also Latin "Florentia"), Montenegro → Montenegrin, Philistia → Philistine, ''Argentina → Argentine'' cf. above (Demonym#Adjectives as placenames)) '''''The Scarlet Letter''''' is an 1850 romantic work of fiction in a historical setting, written by Nathaniel Hawthorne. It is considered to be his magnum opus. National Public Radio (NPR): March 2, 2008, Sunday. SHOW: Weekend All Things Considered. "Sinner, Victim, Object, Winner" ANCHORS: JACKI LYDEN http: www.npr.org templates story story.php?storyId 87805369 (quote in article refers to it as his "masterwork", listen to the audio to hear it the original reference to it being his "magnum opus") Set in 17th-century Puritan Boston during the years 1642 to 1649, it tells the story of Hester Prynne, who conceives a daughter through an adulterous affair and struggles to create a new life of repentance and dignity. Throughout the book, Hawthorne explores themes of legalism (Legalism (theology)), sin, and guilt. The following are historical and Biblical references that appear in ''The Scarlet Letter.'' * Anne Hutchinson, mentioned in Chapter 1, The Prison Door, was a religious dissenter (1591–1643). In the 1630s she was excommunicated by the Puritans and exiled from Boston and moved to Rhode Island. * Ann Hibbins, who historically was executed for witchcraft in Boston in 1656, is depicted in ''The Scarlet Letter'' as a witch who tries to tempt Prynne to the practice of witchcraft.

Pgs. 186-187 The Macy's East downtown Boston store (formerly the Jordan Marsh flagship) touched off a local public relations firestorm with the June 6, 2006, removal of two mannequins and the Web address of the AIDS Action Committee from a window display promoting Boston's annual gay pride celebration. The removal was apparently in response to pressure from MassResistance, a local group opposed to same-sex marriage, whose members complained the mannequins were "homosexual". The removal of the mannequins was widely condemned by residents and officials, including Boston mayor Thomas Menino, who was quoted as saying: - 1951 NBA All


Washington, D.C.

The '''Lanston Monotype Machine Company''' was founded by Tolbert Lanston in Washington, D.C., in 1887. Lanston had a patented mechanical method of punching out metal types from cold strips of metal which were set (hence ''typesetting'') into a matrix (Matrix (printing)) for the printing press. In 1896 Lanston patented the first hot metal typesetting machine and Monotype issued Modern Condensed, its first typeface. The licenses for the Lanston type library have been acquired

designed types (type design) for various stages of printing technology, including hot metal (Linotype machine) composition, phototypesetting (also called "cold type"), and finally digital typography for use in desktop publishing. His two most famous typefaces, ''Palatino'' and ''Optima'', were designed in 1948 and 1952, respectively. ''Palatino'' was designed in conjunction with August Rosenberger, with careful attention to detail. It was named after 16th century
