Street to the current La Belle Cemetery grounds. Sister cities * '''State Trunk Highway 16''' (often called '''Highway 16''', '''STH 16''' or '''WIS 16''') is a Wisconsin state highway running from Pewaukee (Pewaukee, Wisconsin) across the state to La Crosse (La Crosse, Wisconsin). Much of its route in the state parallels the former mainline of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad (Milwaukee Road). The route parallels I-90 (Interstate 90 in Wisconsin) or I-94 (Interstate 94 in Wisconsin) for most of its length in the state. It serves local traffic in nearby cities including La Crosse (La Crosse, Wisconsin), Tomah (Tomah, Wisconsin), Wisconsin Dells (Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin), Portage (Portage, Wisconsin), Columbus (Columbus, Wisconsin), Watertown (Watertown, Wisconsin), Oconomowoc (Oconomowoc, Wisconsin) and Waukesha (Waukesha, Wisconsin). The highway is mainly two-lane surface road or urban multilane expressway from La Crosse to Oconomowoc, and is a freeway east of Oconomowoc. Oconomowoc bypass The alignment of the eastern section of Highway 16 changed in late 2006 when the rest of the Oconomowoc (Oconomowoc, Wisconsin) bypass was opened to traffic. The four-lane, limited access divided highway routes Highway 16 around Lac La Belle on the west side of the city, meeting up with Highway 67 (Highway 67 (Wisconsin)) north of downtown. Eventually, the bypass will result in the removal of the state highway designation from Wisconsin Avenue through downtown Oconomowoc (Oconomowoc, Wisconsin). - 50 Oconomowoc (Oconomowoc, Wisconsin) 15,759 12,382 City (Political_subdivisions_of_Wisconsin#City) Waukesha (Waukesha County, Wisconsin) -

Duchy of Mantua

the Investiture Controversy, Pinamonte Bonacolsi took advantage of the chaotic situation to seize power — as Captain General of the People — in 1273. His family ruled Mantua for the next century, making it more prosperous and artistically beautiful. On 16 August 1328, the last Bonacolsi, Rinaldo, was overthrown in a revolt backed by the House of Gonzaga, a family of officials, namely the 60-year-old Luis and his sons Guy, Filippino and Feltrino (Feltrino Gonzaga). Ludovico (Ludovico I Gonzaga), who had been podestà of the city in 1318, was elected capitano del popolo ("people's captain"). The Gonzaga built new walls with five gates and renovated the architecture of the city in the 14th century, but the political situation in the city did not settle until Ludovico II (Ludovico II Gonzaga) eliminated his relatives, seizing power for himself in 1370. Through a payment of 120,000 golden florins (Italian coin florin) in 1433, Gianfrancesco (Gianfrancesco I of Gonzaga) was appointed marquis of Mantua by Emperor Sigismund (Sigismund, Holy Roman Emperor), whose niece Barbara of Brandenburg he married. In 1459 Pope Pius II held a diet (diet (assembly)) in Mantua to proclaim a crusade against the Turks (Ottoman Empire). The first duke of Mantua was Federico II (Federico II of Gonzaga), who acquired the title from Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor in 1530. The following year, the family acquired the Marquisate of Montferrat through marriage. Federico commissioned Giulio Romano to build the famous Palazzo Te, in the periphery of the city, and profoundly improved the urbanistic assets of the city. In 1624, Francesco IV (Francesco IV of Gonzaga) moved the ducal seat to a new residence, the Villa della Favorita, designed by the architect Nicolò Sebregondi. In 1627, the direct line of the Gonzaga family came to an end with the vicious and weak Vincenzo II (Vincenzo II of Gonzaga), and the town slowly declined under the new rulers, the Gonzaga Nevers (Nevers), a cadet French branch of the family. The War of the Mantuan Succession broke out, and in 1630 an Imperial (Holy Roman Empire) army of 36,000 Landsknecht mercenaries besieged Mantua, bringing the plague with them. Mantua never recovered from this disaster. Duke Ferdinand Charles (Ferdinand Charles, Duke of Mantua and Montferrat), an inept ruler whose only aim was to hold parties and theatrical representations, allied with France in the War of the Spanish Succession. After the latter's defeat, he was declared deposed by Emperor Joseph I (Joseph I, Holy Roman Emperor) and took refuge in Venice, carrying with him a thousand pictures. At his death, in 1708 his family lost Mantua forever in favour of the Habsburgs of Austria. Montferrat's territories were ceded to the Duke of Savoy, and the emperor compensated the Duke of Lorraine, heir in female line of the Gonzaga, for the loss of Montferrat by ceding him the Duchy of Teschen. Mantua was briefly united with the Duchy of Milan by an edict of Emperor Joseph II on 26 September 1786, but later restored in its separated administration by Emperor Leopold II on 24 January 1791. Mantua was besieged by Napoleon's French army in 1796, before falling in 1797. With the Treaty of Campo Formio, Mantua was annexed to the Cisalpine Republic becoming the Department of Mincio (Province of Mantua).

The buildings are connected by corridors and galleries and are enriched by inner courts and wide gardens. The complex includes some 500 rooms and occupies an area of c. 34,000 m². Although most famous for Mantegna (Andrea Mantegna)'s frescos in the Camera degli Sposi (Wedding Room), they have many other very significant architectural and painted elements.

Classical Athens

, ''Ichneutai'', "trackers"), also known as the ''Searchers'', ''Trackers'' or ''Tracking Satyrs'', is a fragmentary satyr play by the fifth-century Athenian (Classical Athens) dramatist (Theatre of ancient Greece) Sophocles. Three nondescript quotations in ancient authors were all that was known of the play until 1912, Hunt (1912) 31. when the extensive remains of a second-century CE papyrus roll of the ''Ichneutae'' were published among the ''Oxyrhynchus Papyri''. With more than four hundred lines surviving in their entirety or in part, the ''Ichneutae'' is now the best preserved ancient satyr play after Euripides' ''Cyclops (Cyclops (play))'', the only fully extant example of the genre. thumb right As for me, all I know is that I know nothing. (File:Socrates Louvre.jpg) '''Socrates (w:Socrates)''' (Σωκράτης; c. 470 BC – 399 BC) was a classical Greek (w:Classical Greece) (Athenian (w:Classical Athens)) philosopher credited as one of the founders of Western philosophy (w:Western philosophy). Through his portrayal in Plato's dialogues, Socrates has become renowned for his contribution to the field of ethics (w:ethics), and it is this Platonic Socrates who lends his name to the concepts of Socratic irony and the Socratic method (w:Socratic method), or ''elenchus''. The latter remains a commonly used tool in a wide range of discussions, and is a type of pedagogy (w:pedagogy) in which a series of questions is asked not only to draw individual answers, but also to encourage fundamental insight into the issue at hand. * '''He''' Socrates, in an earlier dialogue, the ''Crito (w:Crito)'' contended that he had been condemned by due process of law, and that it would be wrong to do anything illegal to avoid punishment. He '''first proclaimed the principle which we associate with the Sermon on the Mount (w:Sermon_on_the_Mount),''' that "we ought not retaliate evil for evil to any one, whatever evil may be suffered from him." He then imagines himself engaged in a dialogue with the laws of Athens (w:Classical Athens), in which they point out that he owes them the kind of respect that a son owes to a father or a slave to his master, but in an even higher degree; and that, moreover, every Athenian citizen is free to emigrate if he dislikes the Athenian State (w:Athenian_democracy). ** Book One, Part II, Chapter XVI, Plato's Theory of Immortality, p. 133. * '''There is every reason to believe that the later Pythagoreans exercised a strong influence on the study and development of mathematics at Athens (w:Classical Athens). The Sophists (w:Sophist) acquired geometry from Pythagorean sources. Plato bought the works of Philolaus and had a warm friend in Archytas.''' ** p. 23. The Sophist School (w:Sophism) * '''Athens (w:Classical Athens)... became the richest and most beautiful city of antiquity.''' All menial work was performed by slaves. ...The citizen of Athens was well to do and enjoyed a large amount of leisure. The government being purely democratic, every citizen was a politician. To make his influence felt among his fellow-men he must, first of all, be educated. Thus '''there arose a demand for teachers. The supply came principally from Sicily (w:Sicily#Greek_and_Roman_period), where Pythagorean doctrines had spread. These teachers were called ''Sophists'' (w:Sophist), or "wise men." Unlike the Pythagoreans, they accepted pay for their teaching. Although rhetoric was the principal feature of their instruction, they also taught geometry, astronomy, and philosophy.''' ** p. 24.
