Alta California

. After Portolà left California in 1770, Pedro Fages served as the somewhat independent military governor of ''California Nueva'' (New California), which was later to become Alta California, headquartered in Monterey (Monterey, California). During this time, Fages explored by land San Francisco Bay, San Pablo Bay, the Carquinez Strait, the San Joaquin River, and surrounding areas; and earned his nickname ''l'ós'' while hunting bears near San Luis Obispo (San Luis Obispo, California). Fages quarreled with Father Junípero Serra, president of the Alta California missions (Spanish Missions of California), and was replaced in 1774 by Fernando Rivera y Moncada. In early June 1846, Montgomery and the ship he commanded, the ''USS Portsmouth'', arrived in San Francisco Bay, then part of the Mexican province of Alta California. As a result Montgomery was involved, albeit as a witness only, in the events of the Bear Flag Revolt in which foreign residents, mostly American revolted against the Mexican authorities. As a naval representative of the U.S. Government, he was approached by representatives of the Revolt, by representatives of the Mexican provincial government and by other representatives of the U.S. On June 16, 1846, Montgomery sent a mission to Sonoma to investigate the conditions there, following the Revolt. left thumb ''USS Savannah'' (File:USS Savannah (1842).jpg) The Pacific Squadron was instrumental in the capture of Alta California in the Mexican–American War of 1846 to 1848. After war was declared on 24 April 1846. The American navy with its force of 350-400 marines and bluejacket sailors on board several ships near California were essentially the only significant United States military force on the Pacific coast in the early months of the Mexican–American War. Marines were stationed aboard each warship to assist in close in ship to ship combat and could be detached for use on land. In addition there were some sailors on each ship that could be detached from each vessel for shore duty and still leave the ship functional though short handed. The Pacific Squadron had orders, in the event of war with Mexico, to seize the ports in Mexican California and elsewhere along the Pacific Coast (West Coast of the United States). The only other United States military force in California was a small exploratory force of Lieutenant Colonel John C. Fremont's thirty topographical, surveying, etc. army troops and about twenty-five men hired as guides and hunters. His exploratory expedition was part of the Corps of Topographical Engineers. Under John D. Sloat, Commodore of the Pacific Squadron, the USS ''Savannah'' (USS Savannah (1842)) with USS ''Cyane'' (USS Cyane (1837)) and USS ''Levant'' (USS Levant (1837)) captured (Battle of Monterey) the Alta California capital city of Monterey, California on 7 July 1846. Two days later on 9 July, USS ''Portsmouth'' (USS Portsmouth (1843)), under Captain (captain (naval)) John S. Montgomery, landed seventy marines and bluejacket sailors at Clark's Point in San Francisco Bay and captured Yerba Buena, which is today's San Francisco (History of San Francisco), without firing a shot. There he met John C. Fremont and gave him some lead and powder to support the Bear Flag Revolt. On July 11 the British Royal Navy sloop HMS ''Juno'' (HMS Juno (1844)) entered San Francisco Bay causing Montgomery to man his defenses. The large British ship, the 2,600 ton man-of-war HMS ''Collingwood'' (HMS Collingwood (1841)), flagship under Sir George S. Seymour, also showed up about this time outside Monterey Harbor. Both British ships observed, but did not enter the conflict.

He was the United States' first and only consul to the California Republic. Washington (Washington, D.C.), and in 1843 President Tyler (John Tyler) appointed Larkin as the first (and last) American consul to Alta California. The following year, he thwarted a British attempt to acquire California while he was assisting the Mexican (Mexico) government in building a smallpox hospital in Monterey. The peak year for television westerns was 1959, with 26 such shows airing during prime-time. In one week in March 1959, eight of the top ten shows were westerns. Increasing costs of production (a horse cost up to $100 a day) led to most action half hour series vanishing in the early 1960s to be replaced by hour long television shows, increasingly in color. Kisseloff, J. (editor) ''The Box An Oral History of Television'' Two unusual westerns series of this era are ''Zorro (Zorro (1957 TV series))'', set in early California (Alta California) under Spanish rule, and the British Australian western ''Whiplash (Whiplash (TV series))'' set in 1850 60's Australia with four scripts by Gene Roddenberry.

Anjou

Queen consort of Sicily Joan was born at Château d'Angers in Anjou, and spent her youth at her mother's courts at Winchester and Poitiers. In 1176, William II of Sicily sent ambassadors to the English court to ask for Joan's hand in marriage. The betrothal was confirmed on 20 May and on 27 August Joan set sail for Sicily, escorted by John of Oxford, the bishop of Norwich and her uncle, Hamelin de Warenne, Earl of Surrey. In Saint Gilles (Saint-Gilles, Gard), her entourage was met by representatives of the Kingdom of Sicily: Alfano, Archbishop of Capua, and Richard Palmer, Bishop of Syracuse. thumb left William's Death Bed (File:Vilem2Sicilie smrt.jpg)

Various ethnic groups and their respective kingdoms, including the Sushen, Donghu, Xianbei, Wuhuan, Mohe (Mohe people), Khitan (Khitan people) and Jurchens have risen to power in Manchuria. At various times in this time period, Han Dynasty, Cao Wei Dynasty, Western Jin Dynasty, Tang Dynasty and some other minor kingdoms of China established control in parts of Manchuria and in some cases tributary relations with peoples in the area. The Cambridge History of China, Vol. 03: "Sui and T'ang China, 589–906, Part 1," at 32, 33. Various kingdoms in Korea, such as Gojoseon, Buyeo (Buyeo kingdom), Goguryeo and Balhae were also established in parts of this area. With the Song Dynasty to the south, the Khitan people of Western Manchuria created the Liao Empire (Khitan Dynasty) in the region, which went on to control adjacent parts of Northern China (North China) as well. During the Han Dynasty and Wei Dynasty (Cao Wei), Chinese travelers to Kyūshū recorded its inhabitants and claimed that they were the descendants of the Grand Count (Tàibó) of the Wu (Wu (state)). The inhabitants also show traits of the pre-sinicized Wu people with tattooing, teeth-pulling and baby-carrying. The ''Book of Wei'' records the physical descriptions which are similar to ones on ''Haniwa'' statues, such men with braided hair, tattooing and women wearing large, single-piece clothing.

In 265, Sima Yan forced emperor Cao Huan of Wei to abdicate the throne to him, ending Wei and starting Jin (as Emperor Wu). He named his dynasty after the state of Jin (Jin (Chinese state)) of the Spring and Autumn Period that once ruled the Sima clan's home county of Wen in Henei (present day Wen County, Henan). In 280, the Jin conquered Eastern Wu and unified China, but internal conflicts, corruption, and political turmoil quickly weakened the dynasty, and the unification lasted only ten years. Upon the advent of the second Jin emperor, Emperor Hui, various imperial princes tried to grab power in the devastating War of the Eight Princes. The Wu Hu uprising followed, during which large numbers of refugees fled south while the north was occupied by various nomadic groups. This marked the end of the Western Jin dynasty in 316 when the Jin court evacuated to the region south of the Huai River, and the beginning of the Eastern Jin and the Sixteen Kingdoms period. After Cao Cao's death in 220, Cao Pi forced Emperor Xian to yield the throne to him, ending the Han Dynasty and establishing the state of Cao Wei. Sun Quan did not immediately submit to Wei or declare independence after Cao Pi's enthronement, but took a wait-and-see attitude; by contrast, in early 221, Liu Bei declared himself emperor, establishing the state of Shu Han. Immediately, Liu Bei planned a campaign against Sun Quan to avenge Guan Yu. After attempting to negotiate peace and receiving no positive response from Liu Bei, fearing attack on both sides, Sun Quan became a vassal of Wei. Cao Pi's strategist Liu Ye (Liu Ye (Three Kingdoms)) suggested that Cao Pi decline — and in fact attack Sun Quan on a second front, effectively partitioning Sun's domain with Shu, and then eventually seek to destroy Shu as well. Cao Pi declined, in a fateful choice that most historians believe doomed his empire to ruling only the northern and central China — and this chance would not come again. Indeed, against Liu Ye's advice, he appointed Sun Quan the King of Wu and granted him the nine bestowments. *Battle of Wounded Knee (Wounded Knee Massacre) - 1890 - Sioux Wars *Battle of Wuzhang Plains - 234 - Fought between Shu Han and Cao Wei during the Three Kingdoms period of China '''Zhang Qiu''' is a fictional character in Luo Guanzhong's historical novel ''Romance of the Three Kingdoms''. He was a military general of the state of Cao Wei. Zhang participated in the Battle of Hefei (Battle of Hefei (234)) against Eastern Wu, around the same time as the fifth Northern Expedition (Zhuge Liang's Northern Expeditions) against Cao Wei by Shu Han. Zhang Qiu attacked Zhuge Jin's fleet with fire and effectively drove him back. Later life and death In Pan's later years, he was tasked with the defense against the state of Cao Wei. Once, the Wei emperor, Cao Pi sent Zhang He, Xu Huang, Cao Zhen and Xiahou Shang to invade Nan Commandery with the immediate goal to capture Jiangling city, which Zhu Ran guarded with 5,000 troops. Wei vanguard of 30,000 led by Xiahou built wooden bridges to cross a stream to land the Hundred Miles Island (百里洲), while none of the Wu generals could locate the crossing points of the Wei troops. Pan then told his comrades that the Wei troops were highly spirited and the water level was low, so they'd better avoid battles with them at the moment. Following the river upstream, Pan ordered his soldiers to collect a few hundred million bundles of reeds, and attached them atop some large rafts and set them on fire. He then sent the rafts downstream so that they would burn the wooden bridges being used by Wei. Sensing the danger of being isolated, Xiahou withdrew from the island before his retreat route would be destroyed. For his effort in the siege, Pan was promoted to the rank of General of the Right (右将軍). The mountain is famous for the battle (Battle of Mount Dingjun) which took place there in the Three Kingdoms period, when Huang Zhong of Shu (Shu Han) defeated and killed Xiahou Yuan of Wei (Cao Wei). According to Sanguo Zhi, Shu prime minister Zhuge Liang wished to be buried on Mount Dingjun, so a tomb was built for him there. Huang Zhong was also buried there after his death, but his tomb was moved to Chengdu during the Qing Dynasty, and was destroyed during the Cultural Revolution.

Military operations in this area were directed against three fortifications: Budapest, Orkal and Lahtzanit. Hammad, pp.642–643 As with the rest of the front, the offensive here began with the a fire preparation. However, high trajectory weapons were not employed because Egyptian aircraft were flying through the sector's airspace, hence only direct fire guns were used to bombard Israeli positions.

The objective was the El Gamil airfield in Port Said during the Suez Crisis.

The book "Shades of California: The Hidden Beauty of Ordinary Life" resulted from the successful statewide project.

The more accurate version is… I have a degree in journalism from Bowling Green State University (w:Bowling Green State University) and have worked for several intermediate sized newspapers in Ohio. A ways into this, I changed professions and became a licensed chemical dependency counselor who started one of the first outpatient treatment programs in the Midwest for people who were raised in addictive dysfunctional families. (As an aside, during Campaign 2000, I told CBS News (w:CBS News) in Monterey (w:Monterey, California), that: “To heal the country, we have to heal the family.” After working in the chemical dependency field for about eight years, I felt a spiritual prompting – as other people at times feel spiritual promptings to do any number of things – to leave this profession and go out on the road to look for people trying to make a difference when it came to things like healing the family, saving the environment, helping the poor, creating peace felt compelled to gather these stories, using my journalism background, then share them with others – with the hopes of planting “seeds of change.” After a long, considered discernment process, I decided to go on the road and left Cleveland, in 1990. This was the start of an eight-year research period where I logged close to 100,000 miles. What I learned was a lot of tremendously creative, common sense solutions to practically all the issues of our day. Armed with this, I started to running for president in 1999, and have been doing it ever since (four successive election cycles). In each newspaper interview, each radio show, each speech... I share parts of what I researched with the hopes people will try some of it in their own town, and who knows how far out it will ripple from there. (I found that running for president is a great way to get a message out. And yes, I am indeed trying to win as well. Then I could get the information out a lot quicker, and further.) Now as far as the house painting, because I'm on the road some six to eight months a year campaigning, it's logistically quite hard to hold down a counseling or journalism job. So, instead, I do some part-time house painting to make ends meet. And thus, “Joe the painter.” Note: As an example, in the heart of w:Buffalo, New York Buffalo , I interviewed Dr. Myron Glick who felt his own 'spiritual prompting' to move his family to inner city Buffalo and start the Jericho Road Health Clinic. He uses a minimal sliding fee scale and has seen people from at least 50 different countries (Buffalo is a port city). Why? Because he's Christian (w:Christianity), he told me, and it is Jesus Christ (w:Jesus)' edict that we help the poor. I have shared Dr. Glick's story all over the country, with the hopes of inspiring other doctors to consider doing some version of the same. And each time that happens, I get a component of our healthcare bill passed – and another little kid living below the poverty line gets the medical help they might have otherwise not gotten.
