of the American Planning Association'', 69 (1), 50–71. Also, many early grid-plan towns and suburbs such as Windermere, Florida, Dauphin, Manitoba , and St. Andrews, New Brunswick exhibit grid layouts and very low densities. Conversely, incidental cul-de-sac and crescent streets in central areas show high densities. Examples of unusual, unconventional associations of density and street type demonstrate that street patterns are coincidentally, not causally, related to housing

: ''L'aigle abattu'', pp. 139, 143. Napoleon Bonaparte It has been suggested that Napoleon Bonaparte (1769–1821) suffered and died from arsenic poisoning during his imprisonment on the island of Saint Helena. Forensic samples of his hair did show high levels, 13 times the normal amount, of the element. This, however, does not prove deliberate poisoning by Napoleon's enemies: copper arsenite has been used as a pigment in some wallpapers, and microbiology

Surveys from the 1930s show high poultry production, and moderate production of horses, cattle, sheep and swine. Sheep production saw a major drop from 1931 to 1936 and never rose again. The 1950s continued these pre-existing trends with low sheep production, high

Vienna

, Germany – Jack FM Austria – Radio 88.6 creditably filled the responsible and difficult post of director of the music at Stephansdom St. Stephen's Cathedral , from 1823 until his death in Vienna; and his compositions show high gifts and accomplishment. They consist chiefly of church music, 17 masses (Mass (liturgy)), besides litanies, motets, offertories, etc., being among the number. He also wrote several sonatas (sonata (music)), a symphony, and one or two minor compositions of a dramatic kind. Stadlen, who was born in Vienna, premiered the Variations for piano, Op. 27 by Webern (Anton Webern), and been the soloist in the European premiere of Schoenberg’s Piano Concerto (Piano Concerto (Schoenberg)). After the "Anschluss" he had to leave Austria and sought refuge in Britain. Eventually, however, a neurological finger malfunction caused him to give up performing, and he became a music critic, serving the Daily Telegraph for 26 years (the last 10 as chief music critic). In August 1876, soon after the exposure of the killings of up to 15,000 Bulgarians the previous spring by Circassian irregulars in the Ottoman army, MacColl and Canon Liddon of St. Paul's travelled to Vienna and Serbia on a fact-finding tour. During a boatride on the River Sava, then the frontier between Serbia and the Ottoman Empire, the two clergymen claimed to have seen an impaled human corpse. Though their testimony could not be independently confirmed, and was challenged by the local British Consul who suggested that the object in question might have been only a bag of beans, MacColl and Liddon used this sighting as proof of the iniquity of Turkish rule in the Balkans. This fitted in with a theme in their sermons that those in Britain (such as Gladstone's arch-opponent Benjamin Disraeli) who did not actively oppose Turkish rule were themselves guilty of its sins. thumb Heinz-Christian Strache (File:Heinz-Christian Strache Sankt Poelten 20080918d.jpg) '''Heinz-Christian Strache''' (born 12 June 1969) is an Austrian politician, member of parliament, former member of the Vienna city council and political leader of the Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ). He is a right-wing politician and an efficient populist (populism). He prefers to call himself just 'HC' Strache. On December 15, 1711, Bishop Franz Ferdinand Freiherr von Rummel consecrated the bell, which was then installed in the lower part of the high south tower of the cathedral. It rang for the first time on January 26, 1712 to mark the entry of Charles VI (Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor) to Vienna from Frankfurt after his coronation as Emperor (Holy Roman Emperor). It arrived in Vienna on 26 April 1952 and was consecrated by Cardinal Theodor Innitzer that same day. It rang for the first time the next day at a Pontifical High Mass, but from the cathedral's building yard where it remained until its new home was completed. thumb Heinrich Joseph von Collin (File:Edler von Collin.jpg) '''Heinrich Joseph von Collin''' (1771-1811), Austrian dramatist, was born in Vienna, on 26 December 1771. He received a legal education and entered the Austrian ministry of finance where he found speedy promotion. In 1805 and in 1809, when Austria was under the heel of Napoleon, Collin was entrusted with important political missions. In 1803 he was, together with other members of his family, ennobled, and in 1809 made ''Hofrat''. He died on 28 July 1811 in Vienna. His tragedy ''Regulus'' (1801), written in strict classical form, was received with enthusiasm in Vienna, where literary taste, less advanced than that of northern Germany, was still under the ban of French (France) classicism. But in his later dramas, ''Coriolan'' (1804), ''Polyxena'' (1804), ''Balboa'' (1806), and ''Bianca della Porta'' (1808), he made some attempt to reconcile the pseudo-classic type of tragedy with that of Shakespeare and the German romanticists. As a lyric poet (''Gedichte'', collected 1812), Collin has left a collection of stirring ''Wehrmannslieder'' for the fighters in the cause of Austrian freedom, as well as some excellent ballads (''Kaiser Max auf der Martinswand'', ''Herzog Leupold vor Solothurn''). thumb 250px left Station building in 1877 (Image:Kovel rail station in Warsaw 1877.jpg) The original station was built around 1880 under the name of Vistulan Main Train Station ( Wikipedia:Vienna Commons:Category:Vienna
