, Humberstone, Nickel Beach, Pine Crest Point, Pleasant Beach, Sherkston, Sherkston Beaches, Shisler Point and Silver Bay. Culture Port Colborne hosts the annual Canal Days festival in recognition of the important role played by the Welland Canal in the history of the city. Originating as a small fair held at the Port Colborne Historical and Marine Museum, it has grown to feature live music, an antique car show, fireworks, tall ships, a kite festival, and food from around the globe. The festival also highlights the presence of Lock 8, which at 1,380 ft (420 m), is one of the world's longest canal locks. Offshore Blue - The Welland Canal & St Lawrence Seaway The lock is intended as a guard to keep the water level on the Welland Canal constant independent of weather on the lake. Hence the ships are only raised or lowered one to four feet depending on the current water level in Lake Erie. Much of the festival centres around West St., which runs along the side of the canal, and has an excellent view of the Clarence St. Bridge, one of very few remaining lift bridges on the canal. The Port Colborne Historical and Marine Museum, located near the centre of town, is a resource for local history and archival research. In addition to a collection of historic buildings and artifacts, it opened up the "Marie Semley Research Wing" to foster research into local history, named to commemorate the long-standing efforts of a local resident who devoted hours to the museum. The community features theatre venues with the professional Showboat Festival Theatre and the amateur Port Colborne Operatic Society.

Angiolello, Giovanni Maria, Turkish History In 1474, he besieged the Iskenderiye fortress (Shkodër), now in Albania — back then under Venetian (Republic of Venice) control. The fortress was defended by one '''Antonio Loredano'''.

Hoca Sadeddin Efendi, Crown of Histories He was then ordered to march against Moldavia, as Stephen the Great refused to pay homage to the Sultan. Suleyman was reluctant in marching against Moldavia, as his troops were exhausted from the failed siege and as winter was approaching, but he couldn't dare to question the Sultan's decision. Hoca Sadeddin Efendi, Crown of Histories In December 1474, he began his march from Sofia to Moldavia with troops Rumeli provincial levies and, on January 10, 1475, confronted Stephen at the Battle of Vaslui or Battle of Racova. His Ottoman forces suffered a major defeat with high casualties. However, this defeat was recompensated during next summer when the Ottomans occupied Besserabia, took Akkerman, and defeated Stephen on July 17, 1476 at Valea Alba (Battle of Valea Albă) (Akdere).

However, recent studies now conclude that Đurađ died in 1379 rather than in 1378. The rule of Zeta was passed down to his younger brother, Balša II. Đurađ's death caused quite a stir between Zeta's neighbours. Bosnian Ban Tvrtko I annexed Đurađ's territories bordering Dubrovnik (Republic of Ragusa) in 1377, along with the remainder of Đurađ's coastal lands between the Bay of Kotor and the land previously annexed in 1377 at the time of his death. Tvrtko secured these possessions through Đurađ's death, free of worry of any counter-attack. DATE OF DEATH 13 January 1378 PLACE OF DEATH Shkodër, Zeta (Principality of Zeta) Establishment On 18 September 1385, Đurađ's uncle Balša II was killed by the Ottoman Turks at the Battle of Savra. Following the temporary rule of Balša's widow Komnena, daughter of Despot of Valona (Lordship of Valona) Ivan Komnenos Asen, together with her daughter Ruđina, Đurađ inherited the parts of Zeta and northern Albania, including the cities of Skadar (Shkodër), Drivast and Lješ (Lezhë), as per the Balšićs' traditional rule of seniority (Agnatic seniority), as "self-holder to the Zeta and Coast land". Đurađ was the governor of Ulcinj, which henceforth became the Balšićs' home town. The remainder of the Balšić possessions, in southern Albania, passed in 1391 from Ruđina to her spouse Mrkša Žarković, son of Emperor Dušan (Stefan Uroš IV Dušan of Serbia)'s nobleman Žarko. The protovestijar Philip Bareli, the Venetian trader that handled Balša's financing, who was succeeded by Đurađ, is also mentioned. On February 25, 1420 Gjon Kastriot wrote a letter in the Serbian language to merchants from Dubrovnik. Based on the order of despot of Serbia (Despotate of Serbia), when they traveled from Dubrovnik to Prizren they had to use the route trough Shkodër in Albania Veneta and the Kastriot's land instead of the previous route trough the land under control of the small feudal lords and highlander tribes of Montenegro. The '''Bushati family''' was a prominent family in Albanian history for part of the Ottoman (Ottoman Empire) rule of the region. The family ruled the Pashalik of Scutari from 1757 to 1831. Their dominance of the Scutari region was gained through a network of alliances with various highland tribes. Even after the fall of the pashaluk in 1831, the Bushatis continued to play an important role in the Albanian society. During the 19th century, Scutari (Shkodër) was also known as a cultural centre and in the 1840s the Bushati Library was built. In 1469, Giosafat Barbaro was made Provveditore of Scutari (Shkodër), in Albania. ''Mehmed the Conqueror & His Time'', Franz Babinger, Trans. Ralph Manheim, Princeton University Press; 1992, p.261 ISBN 978-0-691-01078-6 He was in command of 1200 cavalry, which he used to support Lekë Dukagjini . In 1472, Barbaro was back in Venice, where he was one of the 41 senators chosen to act as electors, who selected Nicolo Tron as Doge. Role in the Uprising In 1804, the year of the First Serbian Uprising, he was a Buljubaša (the commander of a četa), under Milenko Stojković. In 1805 he took part in the Battle of Ivankovac against Hafiz-paša, after which the Правитељствујушчи совјет awarded him the rank of Bimbaša (a commander of 1000 men) and Vojvoda (Voivode). After the Battle of Deligrad in 1806 against Ibrahim-Paša of Shkodër, he became one of the most important men in Serbia. image location Shkodër, Albania opened 1947 as "Vojo Kushi Stadium" '''Loro Boriçi Stadium''' is a multi-purpose stadium in Shkodër, Albania. It is currently used mostly for football (football (soccer)) matches and is the home ground of Vllaznia Shkodër. The stadium holds 16,000 spectators and was reconstructed in 2001. It is named in honour of Loro Boriçi, famous player in 1940s and 1950s. It is also the second largest stadium in Albania behind the Qemal Stafa stadium (Qemal Stafa (stadium)) in Tirana which seats 19,600. HSH's infrastructure runs east to Pogradec, south to Vlorë and north to Shkodër. There is also a branch line to capital city Tirana. The network was extended beyond Shkodër in the 1980s into what is now Montenegro, via the Albanian border town of Han i Hotit. But that section of the system is for freight only. There is also no physical rail connection between Albania and neighbouring Macedonia (Republic of Macedonia) as well as Greece. * 1910 Soufli, Drama (Drama, Greece) (closed in 1921), Serres (closed in 1921), Ioannina (closed in 1921), Kayseri, Inebolu, Ordu, Geyve, Bolvadin, Mansureh * 1911 Manchester, Scutari of Albania (Shkodër) (closed in 1914), Rhodes (closed in 1921), Diyarbekir, Elazig, Bitlis, Van (Van, Turkey), Ceyhan, Saida (Sidon) (closed in 1921), Hodeida (closed in 1921), Benghazi (closed in 1912). * 1912 Bolu, Urfa, Sandıklı, Söke, Djeddah (closed in 1916)


Portuguese Timor

Udo became part of Ainaro in exchange. The suco of Mape-Zumalai became part of Cova-Lima in 2003. In Portuguese Timor, the city was known as '''Vila General Carmona''', after the Portuguese dictator António Óscar Carmona. The arms of Portuguese Timor followed the same format of other Portuguese colonies (Portuguese Empire) (later overseas provinces) with the territory being represented by the black and white Dominican cross in recognition of the role played by the Dominican Order in converting the East Timorese to Roman Catholicism. East Timor: flag proposal of 1967 Family Rogerio Lobo's father, Pedro José Lobo, moved from Portuguese Timor to Macau between late 19th century and early 20th century. He settled in Macau and married Branca Hyndman, the great granddaughter of Scottish sea captain Henry Hyndman, served in the British East India Company at Singapore and settled in Macau at the beginning of the 19th century. Pedro José Lobo was a famous and important businessman, politician and philanthropist of Macau. AIF troops were also dispatched from Darwin to the Netherlands East Indies (NEI) in the first weeks of the Pacific War. Reinforced battalions from the 23rd Brigade were sent to Koepang (Kupang) in West Timor ('Sparrow Force') and the island of Ambon (Ambon Island) ('Gull Force') to defend these strategic locations from Japanese attack. The 2 2nd Independent Company (2 2nd Commando Squadron (Australia)) was also sent to Dili in Portuguese Timor in violation of Portugal's neutrality. The force at Ambon was defeated (Battle of Ambon) by the Japanese landing on 30 January and surrendered on 3 February 1942. Over 300 Australian prisoners were subsequently killed by Japanese troops in a series of mass executions during February. Coulthard-Clark (2001). pp. 201–202. While the force at Koepang was defeated after the Japanese landed there on 20 February and also surrendered, Australian commandos waged a guerrilla campaign (Battle of Timor) against the Japanese in Portuguese Timor until February 1943.
