Retrieved 8 july 2014 20th century thumb Map from 1928 showing the town as Trotsk (File:Trotsk map 1928.jpg) Gatchina was honored as the best-kept city of Russia at the 1900 World's Fair in Paris (Exposition Universelle (Exposition Universelle (1900))). The quality of life, education, medical services, and public safety in Gatchina were recognized as the best, and it was recommended as an example for other cities in Russia. One of the first airfields in Russia was established in Gatchina in 1910. The pilot Pyotr Nesterov was trained at Gatchina airfield and made his first long-distance flight from Gatchina to Kiev in the 1900s. At that time, an aviation industry was developing in Gatchina, eventually becoming one of the first centers of aviation and engine technology in Russia. During the 1900s, Gatchina remained one of the official Imperial Residences of Tsar Nicholas II, who was presiding over annual military parades and celebrations of the Imperial Russian Army garrisons, stationed in Gatchina until 1917. During World War I, major medical hospitals in Gatchina were patronized by the Tsar Nicholas II and Empress Maria Fyodorovna, the mother of Nicholas II, his wife the Empress Alexandra Fyodorovna (Alexandra Feodorovna (Alix of Hesse)), as well as their daughters: the Grand Duchess Olga (Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna of Russia), the Grand Duchess Tatyana (Grand Duchess Tatiana Nikolaevna of Russia), the Grand Duchess Maria (Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaevna of Russia (1899–1918)), and the Grand Duchess Anastasiya (Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia). In May 1918, in the former imperial palace, one of the first museums in the country was opened "for the victorious popular masses of the Russian Revolution".

Kosovo Albanians responded with a non-violent (Nonviolence) separatist movement, employing widespread civil disobedience and creation of parallel structures in education, medical (medical school) care, and taxation, with the ultimate goal of achieving the independence of Kosovo. Clark, Howard. ''Civil Resistance in Kosovo''. London: Pluto Press, 2000. ISBN 0-7453-1569-0. On 2 July 1990 a majority of members of the Kosovo Assembly passed a resolution declaring the Republic of Kosova (Republic of Kosova (1990–2000)) within the Yugoslav Federation; in September 1991 (after the dissolution of the Assembly by Serbia) they passed a Constitution which would have given the Republic effective sovereignty but which might have also been compatible with a Yugoslav confederation if this had existed; in September 1992 they declared the Republic a sovereign and independent state.

''Perceptions'' 8(3), September–November 2003: 43–69. During its lifetime, the Republic of Kosova was only officially recognised (diplomatic recognition) by Albania; it was formally disbanded in 2000, after the Kosovo War, when its institutions were replaced by the Joint Interim Administrative Structure established by the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK). In 1995 the Dayton Agreement ended the Bosnian War, drawing considerable international attention. However, despite the hopes of Kosovar Albanians, the situation in Kosovo remained largely un-addressed by the international community, and by 1996 the Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA), an ethnic Albanian (Albanians) guerrilla paramilitary group (Paramilitary), had prevailed over the non-violent resistance (Nonviolent resistance) movement and had started presenting armed resistance to Serbian (Serbs) and Yugoslav (Yugoslavia) security forces, resulting in early stages of the Kosovo War.

The Serbian authorities were compelled to sign a ceasefire and partial retreat, monitored by Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) observers according to an agreement negotiated by Richard Holbrooke. However, the ceasefire did not hold and fighting resumed in December 1998. The Račak massacre in January 1999 in particular brought new international attention to the conflict. Within weeks, a multilateral international conference was convened and by March had prepared a draft agreement known as the Rambouillet Accords, calling for restoration of Kosovo's autonomy and deployment of NATO peacekeeping forces. The Serbian party (Serbia) found the terms unacceptable and refused to sign the draft. Between 24 March and 10 June 1999, NATO intervened (1999 NATO bombing of Yugoslavia) by bombing Yugoslavia aimed to force Milošević to withdraw his forces from Kosovo,

If this means complete power, as opposed to having to deal with the checks and balances (w:checks and balances) built into our federal government, this is some of what I'd do: I'd end abortion and all the precipitating factors leading to it (poverty, dysfunctional family dynamics, relaxed sexual mores, alcohol and drug addiction...). I'd mobilize a set of dramatic initiatives to, not just curb global warming (w:global warming), but to actually start to reverse it. I would unilaterally disarm our nuclear weapons. I'd stop the production of nuclear energy. (Anybody hear of Chernobyl (w:Chernobyl)?) I would grant amnesty and family reunification to illegal immigrants (w:Illegal Immigration in the United States). (During a talk at an immigration rally in Arizona several years ago, I said we walked through the slums of w:Juarez, Mexico Juarez , where violence is off the charts and many of the children are extremely hungry. If I was their parent, I'd do everything I could to get these children out of harms way and get them something to eat – even if it meant risking crossing the border illegally.) I would end the death penalty. Also in Arizona, I read a newspaper story about a death penalty protester who posed: “Why do we kill people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong?” Good question. I would increase, exponentially, American foreign aid (it is currently only 4% of the budget) to try to help stem world hunger much more – 24,000 people starve to death every day in the world – and to help realize Habitat for Humanity (w:Habitat for Humanity)'s goal of providing adequate housing, (“…for every person in the world.”) I would bring peace to urban war zones around the country. (In part of this effort, our family moved into a dangerous part of Cleveland, Ohio, to be part of the solution.) I would end w:homelessness homelessness . (We take homeless people into our home. And we will be doing the same in the West Wing (w:West Wing). I mean the Lincoln bedroom (w:Lincoln Bedroom) is free, as an example.) I would tremendously jack down and simplify the economy, shifting America back to much more of a local production for local consumption orientation, like it was in the “old days.” I would mobilize efforts for a tremendous come back of the small family farm and the practice of growing organically. This was once the backbone of our country, I told the newspaper Country Today in Wisconsin. And it should be again. I would get people to tighten their belts and pay off the w:National Debt National Debt so our children don't inherit it. During a talk at the University of Notre Dame (w:University of Notre Dame) recently, I said I would redirect the technical smarts at NASA (w:NASA) toward coming up with better water filtration systems, solar panel (w:solar panel)s, wind turbine (w:wind turbine)s..., as opposed to working on things like going to space destinations where we: can't breathe the air, there's no gravity and there's no food! “That might be, oh, a hint God doesn't want us there,” I said. I would give some of the land back to the Native Americans (w:Native Americans) so it's equitable, like it should have been from the beginning. And I would give the African Americans (w:African Americans) tangible reparations for past atrocities (w:Reparations for slavery) and the ongoing trans-generational problems slavery (w:slavery) caused. And, I would ensure – as impossible as this seems – that the Cleveland Browns (w:Cleveland Browns) had a winning season, soon... For a look at how I would actually try to make a lot of this happen, the Cleveland Browns notwithstanding, go to my rather extensive position papers at ''Atlantis'' lifted off in fair weather at 2:20 p.m. EDT (1820 UTC) from the w:Kennedy Space Center Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral (w:Cape Canaveral), Florida.

Carrying six veteran astronauts and an assortment of parts for the International Space Station (w:International Space Station) (ISS), the shuttle took off without any delays. This mission, scheduled to take twelve days, is the aging shuttle's 32nd voyage into space of its 25-year career.

'''Zähringen''' is the name of an old German family (German nobility) that founded a large number of cities in what are today Switzerland and Baden-Württemberg. While the junior line that first assumed the title ''Duke of Zähringen'', a cadet branch of the House of Baden (List of rulers of Baden), became extinct in 1218, the senior line persists and currently uses the title ''Margrave of Baden, Duke of Zähringen''. Zähringen today is a district of the city of Freiburg im Breisgau, which the dukes founded in 1120. In the German language the word '''''Zähringer''''' is used for ''House of Zähringen'' in the same way as someone from New York is called a New Yorker. commons:Confoederatio Helvetica
