was rising toward great power status in Europe. Captured from Spain in 1655, the island of Jamaica had been taken over by England and its chief settlement of Port Royal had become a new English buccaneer haven in the midst of the Spanish Empire. Jamaica was slowly transformed, along with Saint Kitts, into the heart of the English presence in the Caribbean. At the same time the French Lesser Antilles colonies of Guadeloupe and Martinique remained the main centers of French power in the Caribbean, as well as among the richest French possessions because of their increasingly profitable sugar plantations. The French also maintained privateering strongholds around western Hispaniola, at their traditional pirate port of Tortuga (Tortuga (Haiti)), and their Hispaniolan capital of Petit-Goâve. The French further expanded their settlements on the western half of Hispaniola and founded Léogâne and Port-de-Paix, even as sugar plantations became the primary industry for the French colonies of the Caribbean. - 1799 12 January The generals of the colony - Toussaint, André Rigaud, Bauvais, and Laplume - met in Port-au-Prince and named Toussaint the lead commander.

The '''Albanian Supercup of football (Football (soccer))''' has been played since 1989. It is a single match at the beginning of the season between the winners of the Albanian Superliga and Albanian Cup.

Albanian Supercup history from rsssf thumb 250px The letters of the Vithkuqi alphabet matched to their Albanian alphabet modern Albanian equivalents (File:VithkuqiScript.png). '''Vithkuqi''' script, also called '''Büthakukye''' or '''Beitha Kukju''' after the appellation applied to it by German Albanist Johann Georg von Hahn, was an alphabet invented for writing the Albanian language between 1825 and 1845 by Albanian (Albanians) scholar Naum Veqilharxhi. Though the script is sometimes erroneuosly claimed to be named after its inventor, as in Carl Faulmann's ''Das Buch der Schrift'', the alphabet's name is derived from Vithkuq, a village in the Korçë region where Veqilharxhi was born. Vithkuqi script was specifically designed to be as religiously neutral as possible, avoiding the duplication of Greek, latin, or Arabic characters. It had a near-perfect correspondence between letters and phonemes, but lacked characters for modern Albanian "rr", "xh", and "zh". The script never took hold because of its inventor's premature death and because of the prohibitive costs of cutting new type for the invented characters; nevertheless, a number of documents utilizing the script were published in the late nineteenth century. The script was eventually overwhelmed by the Greek (Greek script), Arabic (Arabic script) and Latin (Latin script) scripts it had been designed to supplant, the latter becoming the official one in 1909.
