dissenters, as he himself had been exiled from Massachusetts. Providence's growth would be slow during the next quarter-century—the subsuming of its territory into surrounding towns, difficulty of farming the land, and differing of local traditions

and land conflicts all slowed development. In the mid-1770s, the British government levied taxes that impeded Providence's maritime, fishing and agricultural industries, the mainstay of the city's economy. One example was the Sugar Act, which was a tax levied against Providence's distilleries that adversely affected its trade in rum and slaves (Triangular trade). These taxes caused Providence to join the other colonies in renouncing allegiance to the British Crown. In response to enforcement of unpopular trade laws, Providence residents spilled blood in the leadup to the American Revolution in the notorious Gaspée Affair of 1772. Though during the American Revolutionary War the city escaped British occupation, the capture of nearby Newport (Newport, Rhode Island) disrupted industry and kept the population on alert. Troops were quartered for various campaigns and Brown University's University Hall was used as a barracks and military hospital. thumb left Map of the Washington–Rochambeau Revolutionary Route (File:W-RSimpleMap.gif) After departing from Newport (Newport, Rhode Island), French troops sent by King Louis XVI and commanded by the Comte de Rochambeau (Jean-Baptiste Donatien de Vimeur, comte de Rochambeau) passed through Providence on their way to join the attack against British forces. The march from Newport to Providence was the beginning of a campaign led jointly by Rochambeau and General George Washington in a decisive march (Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route) that ended with the defeat of General Cornwallis in the Siege of Yorktown at Yorktown, Virginia, and the Battle of the Chesapeake. Following the war, Providence was the country's ninth-largest city (Largest cities in the United States by population by decade) 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.

During Cianci's trial, the court had ordered the video to be sealed. It was subsequently released to reporter Jim Taricani. Torres opined that the leak had been designed to prevent a fair trial and, as the video was sealed, the person who leaked it had broken the law. Physicist Horatiu Nastase of Brown University (w:Brown University) in Providence, Rhode Island (w:Providence, Rhode Island) says that the calculations show that the fireball has properties similar to that of a black hole. Nastase says this could help explain why so few jets are seen coming out of the fireball. He thinks the particles are being absorbed into the core and reappearing as thermal (Hawking) radiation (w:Hawking radiation), just like theory predicts happens in a black hole. The poor weather conditions prompted the shutdown of LaGuardia (w:LaGuardia International Airport), John F. Kennedy (w:John F.
