language acquisition is hard-wired inside the human brain. "The Nicaraguan case is absolutely unique in history," Steven Pinker, author of ''The Language Instinct'', maintains. "We've been able to see how it is that children — not adults — generate language, and we have been able to record it happening in great scientific detail. And it's the only time that we've actually seen a language being created out of thin air." Nicaragua and World War II During World War II, the government confiscated the properties of Nicaragua's small, but economically influential German (German people) community and sold them to Somoza and his family at ridiculously low prices. By 1944, Somoza was the largest landowner in Nicaragua, owning fifty-one cattle ranches and forty-six coffee plantations, as well as several sugar mills and rum distilleries. Somoza named himself director of the Pacific Railroad, linking Managua to the nation's principal port, Corinto (Corinto (Nicaragua)), which moved his merchandise and crops for free and maintained his vehicles and agricultural equipment. birth_date WikiPedia:Managua Dmoz:Regional Central America Nicaragua Localities Managua Commons:Category:Managua

3500 km mi . Heralded as a great scientific advance, there was—and continues to be—some skepticism about this claim, partly because the signals had been heard faintly and sporadically. There was no independent confirmation of the reported reception, and the transmissions, consisting of the Morse code letter ''S'' sent repeatedly, were difficult to distinguish from atmospheric noise.

1878 until 1881 Beresford was second in command of the royal yacht HMY ''Osborne'' (HMY Osborne (1868)). He was captain of the gunboat HMS ''Condor'' (HMS Condor (1876)) in 1882 when it took part in the bombardment of Alexandria during the Egyptian war of 1882 (Urabi Revolt) and won admiration amongst the British public for taking his ship inshore to bombard the Egyptian batteries at close range.

Early in January 1802 Geoffroy returned to Paris. He was elected a member of the French Academy of Sciences in September 1807. In March of the following year Napoleon (Napoleon I of France), who had already recognized his national services by the award of the cross of the legion of honor, selected him to visit the museums of Portugal, for the purpose of procuring collections from them, and in the face of considerable opposition from the British he eventually was successful in retaining them as a permanent possession for his country.

Particularly, in 1924 the church was allowed to open two institutions of higher learning: the Moscow Theological Academy and the Theological Institute in Leningrad. Some contacts were made with other portions of the Christian East: thus, the ''II Renovationist Council'' (a.k.a. ''III All-Russian Council''), convened in Moscow in 1–9 October 1925, was marked by the presence of the representatives from the Patriarchates of Constantinople and Alexandria who concelebrated the eucharist with other members of the Renovationist Synod. Rüppell set off on his first expedition in 1821, accompanied by surgeon Michael Hey as his assistant. They travelled through the Sinai desert, and in 1822 were the first European explorers to reach the Gulf of Aqaba. They then proceeded to Alexandria via Mount Sinai. In 1823 they travelled up the Nile to Nubia, collecting specimens in the area south of Ambukol, returning to Cairo in July 1825. A planned journey through Ethiopia only reached as far as Massawa, where the party suffered ill health. In January 1955, she embarked upon a voyage to the Mediterranean Sea where she served with the 6th Fleet (United States Sixth Fleet) until March. Resuming duty with the Atlantic Fleet ASW forces, she operated along the eastern seaboard until the fall of 1956. In October of that year, she cruised to the waters of the eastern Atlantic for NATO ASW (anti-submarine warfare) exercises and goodwill visits to ports in Allied countries. While the carrier was in Rotterdam, the Suez crisis broke out in the eastern Mediterranean. ''Antietam'' cut short her visit to the Netherlands and headed for the Mediterranean to bolster the 6th Fleet during the evacuation of American citizens from Alexandria, Egypt. At the end of that assignment, she conducted ASW training exercises with Italian naval officers embarked before returning to Quonset Point on 22 December. thumb Royal Navy ''Sea Hawk'' on ''Antietam'' in 1953 (Image:CV-36 RN SeaHawk NAN9-53.jpg) ;In Africa *North Africa: Algiers, Algeria; Alexandria, Egypt; Casablanca, Morocco; Tripoli, Libya; Tunis, Tunisia; *Southern Africa: Cape Town, Durban and East London (East London, South Africa); Maseru, Lesotho and Natal (Natal, South Africa), South Africa.

Edward Flannery Alexandria was home to the largest Jewish community in the world and the Septuagint, a Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible, was produced there. Manetho, an Egyptian priest and historian of that time, wrote scathingly of the Jews and his themes are repeated in the works of Chaeremon, Lysimachus, Poseidonius, Apollonius Molon, and in Apion and Tacitus. One of the earliest anti-Jewish edicts, promulgated by Antiochus Epiphanes in about 170–167 BCE, sparked a revolt of the Maccabees in Judea.

Bavaria

'''Neustadt (Aisch)-Bad Windsheim''' is a district in Bavaria, Germany. It is bounded by (from the west and clockwise) the districts of Würzburg (Würzburg (district)), Kitzingen (Kitzingen (district)), Bamberg (Bamberg (district)), Erlangen-Höchstadt, Fürth (Fürth (district)) and Ansbach (Ansbach (district)), and by the state of Baden-Württemberg (district Main-Tauber (Main-Tauber (district))). The '''Rhön Mountains''' are a group of low mountains in central Germany, located around the border area where the states of Hesse, Bavaria and Thuringia come together. These mountains, which are at the extreme southeast end of the East Hesse Highlands (''Osthessisches Bergland''), are partly a result of ancient volcanic (volcano) activity. They are separated from the Vogelsberg Mountains by the Fulda River and its valley. The highest mountain in the Rhön is the Wasserkuppe (950.2 m) which is in Hesse. The Rhön Mountains are a popular tourist destination and walking area. thumb Home of Gamsakhurdia in Tbilisi (File:Tiflis1987 2.jpg) Born into a petite noble family in Abasha (Abasha (town)) in western Georgian province of Mingrelia, then under the Imperial Russian rule, Gamsakhurdia received early education at the Kutaisi gymnasium and then studied in St. Petersburg, where he quarreled with Nicholas Marr. He spent most of the World War I years in Germany, France, and Switzerland, taking his doctorate (Doctor of Philosophy) at the Berlin University in 1918. As a Russian subject, he was briefly interned at Traunstein in Bavaria where Thomas Mann sent him chocolate. Gamsakhurdia published his first poems, and short stories early in the 1910s, influenced by German Expressionism and French Post-Symbolist (Symbolism (arts)) literature. While in Germany, he regularly wrote for German press on Georgia and the Caucasus, and was involved in organizing a Georgian Liberation Committee. After Georgia’s declaration of independence in 1918, he became an attaché on Georgia (Democratic Republic of Georgia)’s embassy in Berlin, responsible for repatriation of Georgian World War I prisoners and placing Georgian students in German universities. ref
