Tema

the Inner Fishing Harbour, the Canoe Basin, the Outer Fishing Harbour, and a commercial area with marketing and cold storage facilities. The Inner Fishing Harbour was constructed along the Tema Main Port in 1962 to provide a handling facility for semi-industrial and industrial fishing vessels, and to encourage the development of the local fishing industry. In 1965, the Outer Fishing Harbour was constructed for bigger industrial vessels such as trawler (Fishing trawler)s, tuna vessels, and deep-sea carriers. The trawlers operating in the area are 30–45 m long and are able to land 55-65 tonnes of fish (usually redfish and club and scad mackerel) per fishing trip. The tuna vessels range from smaller boats around 45–50 m in length, able to land 200-250 tonnes of catch, to larger versions with a length of 50–65 m and the ability to land up to 650 tonnes per fishing trip. The largest fishing vessels, the deep-sea carriers (with lengths of 90–105 m), are mostly chartered vessels which land between 700-1,400 tonnes of imported fish, mostly from Mauritania and Namibia. Since 1984, the national catch has averaged about 200,000 to 300,000 metric tonnes per annum. Ghana's tuna catch has maintained a stable level of 30,000 tonnes per annum since 1981. The Canoe Basin caters for the artisanal fishermen. The basin is normally occupied by about 400 canoes. These are mainly two types: wooden vessels, locally called "Legelege", and metal vessels. The wooden canoes have lengths over all (LOA (Length overall)) ranging between 30–70 m, mainly owned and operated by indigenous (indigenous peoples) Ghanaians. Their operations peak during the months of June–September. Main catches during this period are herrings and salmon. Artisanal canoe fishing is responsible for about 70% of the catch. Education SOS Hermann Gmeiner International College (SOS-HGIC), a private mixed boarding school catering to the 10th to 13th grades, is located in Tema. It utilises the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) for the 10th and 11th grades and the International Baccalaureate (IB) for the 12th and 13th grades. The school was headed by Margaret Nkrumah for over 15 years, and is now headed by Titi Ofei. Tema also has an international school, Tema International School (TIS), and a senior high school, Tema Secondary School (TSS), which was built in September 22, 1961. Tema has a number of public Secondary schools such as Chemu Senior High School in Community 4, Tema Methodist Day School, Mahean Senior High School, Tema Technical Institute and Tema Secondary School (Temasco).

Bantry

''Betelgeuse'' exploded , killing all 42 crew members, as well as seven employees at the terminal. The jetty was seriously damaged, but fortunately the storage tanks were not affected. Nevertheless, 250 employees at the terminal, one of the largest employers in the region, lost their jobs. There was also significant environmental impact, and so the local fishing industry was also affected. Local interests subsequently initiated mussel-farming in the sheltered waters between Whiddy and the town, and this industry has enjoyed considerable success.

The iron began being mined in the 1960s when they began building the railway which carries one of the longest trains in the world (2 km). Passengers can pay to sit inside a rail car or ride for free on top, which is quite the ride. The other economic engine is the fishing industry. There are 3 ports: a commercial port (''Port Autonome''), a local fishing port (''Port

Lehr, Peter and Lehmann, Henrick, Violence at Sea: Piracy in the Age of Global Terrorism, p. 3 In August 2008, a multinational coalition (Combined Task Force 150) took on the task of combating the piracy by establishing a Maritime Security Patrol Area (MSPA) within the Gulf of Aden.

Nha Trang

. Industry Nha Trang is the South Central Coast's (Nam Trung Bo) second largest industrial center and the province in general accounts for more than one fifth of the region's industrial GDP. Food processing industries are large, especially those processing local fishing products and food for shrimp farms. Other industrial sectors produce beverages, fabric, textiles, paper, and construction materials. * Thang Long Imperial City in Ha Noi (Hanoi) * Bảo Đại's summer retreats in Nha Trang, Da Lat and Vũng Tàu In 1955, the newly-established Republic of Vietnam Air Force (Vietnam Air Force) (VNAF) inherited from the French a token force of fifty-eight aircraft. These included a few squadrons of Cessna L-19 observation aircraft, C-47 transports and various utility aircraft. Tourane Airfield was turned over to civilian use, with the South Vietnamese using facilities at Bien Hoa, Nha Trang and at Tan Son Nhut, near Saigon. For two months in 1970, ''Warbler'' patrolled between Camranh Bay and Nha Trang, investigating suspicious contacts — none of which proved hostile. "Our greatest excitement during this patrol," her commanding officer later wrote, "was provided by an occasional Soviet merchantman that would steam through our area and find himself shadowed and photographed by the mighty ''Warbler''." Biography Tran was born in Nha Trang, Vietnam. After moving to the United States in 1982, Tran found work in the electronics industry in Silicon Valley. She began playing poker in 1989, after an auto accident left her disabled and unable to continue working in her field. Tran has finished in the money in multiple World Series of Poker (WSOP) tournaments, including two second-place finishes, a third-place finish and a fourth-place finish. A high-stakes specialist, Tran is perhaps best known as Barry Greenstein's ex-girlfriend. Greenstein not only taught her how to play poker, but also convinced her to compete in tournaments; until the mid-to-late 1990s she had been exclusively a side-game player. (Initially, Greenstein himself also played exclusively in side-games; now he donates his tournament winnings to charity.) In exchange for Greenstein teaching Tran how to play poker, she taught him how to speak Vietnamese (Vietnamese language). The two have an on-going debate about who is the better teacher; Greenstein says he is the better teacher and Tran says that is only because she is the better student. thumb 300px The ex- USS LSM-547 LSM-547 (Image:Clive Steele AV-1356 with Luzerne County LST-902.jpg) in Australian service as AV1356 ''Clive Steele'' (AV1356 Clive Steele) with USS ''Luzerne County'' (LST-902) and an unidentified LST beached at a ramp in South Vietnam, ''c.'' 1969. Late in December ''Luzerne County'' was assigned to duty in the Pacific in support of naval operations in Southeast Asia. Departing Norfolk on 19 January 1966, she loaded an Landing Craft Utility (LCU) at Charleston; transited the Panama Canal on 1 February; touched at Pearl Harbor and Subic Bay; and arrived Saigon on 21 April. There she offloaded the LCU before steaming to Da Nang the next day. During the next two weeks she operated in the South China Sea and took part in freeing SS ''Excellency'', an American merchant freighter, from a reef on Triton Island in the Paracels. Although damaged during salvage operations, ''Luzerne County'' carried the merchantman's cargo of ammunition to Bangkok, Thailand, where she arrived on 16 May; thence, she steamed to Sasebo, Japan for repairs and overhaul. Departing Sasebo on 2 July, ''Luzerne County'' resumed supply runs to South Vietnamese ports in support of the American war effort. During July, August, and September she carried military stores from Okinawa to Nha Be, Yung Tau, and Nha Trang, and during the next two months she hauled cement from Kaohsiung, Taiwan, to Phan Rang (Phan Rang-Tháp Chàm). After departing Cam Ranh Bay on 26 November, she returned to Sasebo via Okinawa on 13 December. operator Government city-served Nha Trang, Vietnam location Cam Ranh, Vietnam On May 19, 2004, after major reconstruction, the airport received its first commercial flight from Hanoi. It now handles all of Nha Trang's commercial flights, which previously headed to Nha Trang Airport (Nha Trang Air Base). In 2007, Cam Ranh was upgraded to an international airport. In December, 2009 Cam Ranh International Airport was opened. The total invested capital is up to about 300 billion VND. VTV's regional broadcasting centers are located in Ho Chi Minh City, Huế, Da Nang, Phu Yen, Nha Trang, Cần Thơ, Vinh and Tam Dao. Programming is relayed nationwide via a network of provincial and municipal television stations. There are transmitters in most outlying areas of the country. By 2003, more than 80% of all urban households owned a television set. The percentage was considerably less in rural areas, but even the most remote village cafe has a TV and video (VHS) or DVD player.

Klaipėda

by the municipal company Liepājas tramvajs. The Port of Liepāja has a wide water area and consists of three main parts. The Winter harbor is located in the Trade channel and serves small local fishing vessels as well as medium cargo ships. Immediately north of the Trade channel is the main area of the port, separated from the open sea by a line of breakwater (Breakwater (structure))s. This part of the port can accommodate large ships and ferries. Further north is Tosmare harbor, also called Tosmare channel, which was formerly a military harbor but is now used for ship repairs and other commercial purposes. Liepāja also welcomes yachts and other leisure vessels which can enter the Trade channel and moor almost in the center of the city. Liepāja has a railway connection to Jelgava and Riga and through them to the rest of Latvia's railway network. There is just one passenger station in the New town, but the railway extends further and links to the port. There is also a northward railway track leading to Ventspils, but in recent decades it has fallen into disuse for economic reasons. The railway provides the main means of delivering cargo to the port. Two main highways, the A9 and A11 (List of National Roads in Latvia), connect the city and its port to the rest of the country. The A9 leads north-west towards Riga and central Latvia and the A11 leads south to the border with Lithuania and its only port Klaipėda and to Palanga International Airport. The city also hosts Liepāja International Airport, one of three international airports in Latvia; it is located outside the city limits, north of the Lake of Liepāja near Cimdenieki. Only charter races are available from the Liepāja airport. Highways Kaunas is served by a number of major motorways. European route E67 is a highway running from Prague in the Czech Republic to Helsinki in Finland by way of Poland, Kaunas Lithuania, Riga (Latvia), and Tallinn (Estonia). It is known as the Via Baltica (European route E67) between Warsaw and Tallinn, a distance of 670 kilometres (420 mi). It is the most important road connection between the Baltic states. Kaunas also is linked to Vilnius to its east and Klaipėda, on the Baltic Sea, via the A1 (A1 highway (Lithuania)) motorway and Daugavpils (Latvia), via E262 (European route E262)(A6 (A6 highway (Lithuania))) highway. Germany Only at Sassnitz Mukran ferry terminal for freight train ferries to Klaipėda and Baltijsk. - For eight years, (1621–1629), the exhausting and expensive Polish War dragged on. Swedish Livonia was conquered by the beginning of 1626, and the theatre of hostilities was transferred to the Prussian provinces of Poland. The fertile and easily defensible delta of the Vistula was now occupied and Gustavus treated it as a permanent conquest, making his great Chancellor Axel Oxenstierna its first Governor-General (Governor-General in the Swedish Realm). But this was the limit of the Swedish advance. All Gustavus' further efforts were frustrated by the superior strategy of the Polish hetman Stanisław Koniecpolski, and in June 1629, the king gladly accepted the lucrative Treaty of Altmark. By this truce Sweden was, for six years, to retain possession of its Livonian conquests, besides holding Elbling (Elbląg), the Vistula delta, Braniewo in West, and Pillau and Memel (Klaipėda) in Prussia (Duchy of Prussia), with the right to levy tolls at Pillau, Memel (Klaipėda), Danzig (Gdańsk), Labiau and Windau (Ventspils). From these tolls Gustavus derived, in 1629 alone, 500,000 Riksdalers, a sum equivalent to the whole of the extraordinary subsidies granted to him by the Riksdag (Parliament of Sweden).

At first Frederick William and his advisors attempted to pursue a policy of neutrality in the Napoleonic Wars. Although they succeeded in keeping out of the Third Coalition in 1805, eventually Frederick William was swayed by the belligerent attitude of the queen, who led Prussia's pro-war party, and entered into war in October 1806. On 14 October 1806, at the Battle of Jena-Auerstädt, the French defeated the Prussian army led by Frederick William, and the Prussian army collapsed. The royal family fled to Memel (Klaipėda), East Prussia, where they fell on the mercy of Emperor Alexander I of Russia (who, rumour has it, had fallen in love with Queen Luise). * WikiPedia:Klaipėda Commons:Category:Klaipėda
