Older Tai Dam women still wear the traditional blue indigo cotton shirt, skirt and a black turban woven with colored patterns. They produce rice alcohol, called "lao lao" that is consumed socially and used for ritual purposes. Tai Dam settled in upland valleys near streams and irrigable and accessible plains scattered among Lao and Phuan villages. They built rectangular symmetric houses on pilings

Belém, literally ''Bethlehem'' is also known as the ''Metropolis of the Brazilian Amazon region'' or the ''Cidade das Mangueiras'' (City of Mango Trees) due to the vast number of those trees found in the city. Brazilians often refer to the city as Belém do Pará ("Belém of Pará") rather than just ''Belém'', a reference to an earlier name for the city, Santa Maria de Belém do Grão Pará, and also to differentiate it from a number of other towns called Belém in Brazil. It is named after Santa Maria de Belém (Santa Maria de Belém (Lisbon)) in Lisbon, also better known by its shortened name, Belém (Belém (Lisbon)). Belém is served by two airports: Val de Cães International Airport, which connects the city with the rest of Brazil and other cities in South America, and Brig. Protásio de Oliveira Airport (Júlio César) Airport (Protásio de Oliveira Airport) dedicated to general aviation. The city is also home to the Federal University of Pará. Name The name '''Belém''' is the Portuguese (Portuguese language) word for Bethlehem, the town where Christians believe Jesus Christ was born. The city had a few other names before becoming Belém. Notice also that Brazil has a city called Natal (Natal, Rio Grande do Norte), which means Christmas. History left thumb Ver-o-Peso market. (Image:Ver-oPeso-Belem.jpg) In 1615, Portuguese captain-general Francisco Caldeira Castelo Branco of the captaincy of Bahia commanded a military expedition sent by the Governor General of Brazil (Governorate General of Brazil) to check the trading excursions of foreigners (French, Dutch, English) up the river (Amazon) from the Cabo do Norte in Grão Pará. On January 12, 1616, he anchored in what we now call Guajará bay formed by the confluence of the Para and Guama Rivers, called by the Tupinambás, "Guaçu Paraná". Caldeira mistook the bay for the main channel, and thirty leagues upstream, he built a wooden fort, covered with straw, which he called "Presépio" (now "Forte do Castelo"). The colony formed by the fort was given the name Feliz Lusitânia, "Happy Lusitania". It was the embryo of the future city of Belém. The fort failed to suppress Dutch and French trading, but did ward off colonization. Feliz Lusitânia was later called Nossa Senhora de Belém do Grão Pará (Our Lady of Bethlehem of Grao-Para) and Santa Maria de Belém (St. Mary of Bethlehem). Belém was given city status in 1655 and was made capital of the State when Pará state was split off from Maranhão in 1772. The early decades of the 19th century were marked by political instability. Uprisings and internecine strife finally ended in 1836, after considerable loss of life. History of Belém The sugar trade in the Belém region was important up to the end of the 17th century. Thereafter the city's economic importance alternately rose and fell. Cattle ranching supplanted sugar until the 18th century, when cultivation of rice, cotton, and coffee became profitable. With the settlement of southern Brazil, where such crops could be produced more reasonably, Belém declined again. The city subsequently became the main exporting centre of the Amazon rubber industry, and by 1866 its position was further enhanced by the opening of the Amazon, Tocantins, and Tapajós rivers to navigation. The rubber era ended after the boom of 1910–12, but Belém continued to be the main commercial centre of northern Brazil and the entrepôt for the Amazon valley.

It began with five dedicated aircraft, repainted in a distinctive livery with a red and gray fuselage, and the traditional blue tail with the US Airways logo.

Portions of the road are shared with U.S. Route 3, Interstate 93, and Interstate 293. The southern portion of the turnpike, in Nashua (Nashua, New Hampshire), is posted as U.S. Route 3, serving as an extension of the US-3 freeway (Northwest Expressway) from Burlington, Massachusetts. North of Exit 7 in Nashua, the turnpike runs by itself and has no number, but parallels US-3, which is a toll-free local road variously known as Concord Street (within the city of Nashua) and the Daniel Webster Highway (within Merrimack (Merrimack, New Hampshire) and Bedford (Bedford, New Hampshire)). Approaching the Manchester (Manchester, New Hampshire) area in Bedford, the turnpike is joined by I-293 which splits off from a concurrency with NH Route 101. At Exit 4 (exits are numbered for I-293 on this stretch), NH Route 3A joins the freeway, and the concurrency passes through Manchester, near the downtown area of the city. Upon passing Manchester, Route 3A splits off at Exit 7, I-293's last northbound exit. The freeway passes into Hooksett (Hooksett, New Hampshire), and I-293 ends at an interchange with I-93. The Everett Turnpike ceases to be signed at this interchange, but joins I-93 northbound and continues towards Concord, interchanging with the southern terminus of Interstate 89 along the way. No definitive northern terminus for the turnpike exists as far as signage is concerned. This endpoint was originally at a traffic circle next to downtown Concord that has since been replaced by Exit 14 with New Hampshire Route 9. USL Second Division The USL Pro Select League was renamed the USL Second Division in 2005, and converted to a single-table format, but the Phantoms never got to grips with the new setup, and struggled on the field. The Phantoms lost five of their six opening games, conceding three goals in four of the games, and were grasping for any kind of run in form almost from the beginning of the season. A 6-0 hammering of the Northern Virginia Royals at home in early June that featured a brace from striker Mark Manganello briefly raised the spirits, and back-to-back wins over Long Island Rough Riders and Charlotte Eagles hinted that a late-season surge could be on the cards in Manchester (Manchester, New Hampshire), but the Phantoms reverted back to their poor form quickly. A win and three ties in July effectively ended their playoff hopes, and the 5-2 defeat on the road at Long Island was the low point of the year. A final day victory over the Rough Riders made up for their pummeling earlier in the season, but it was too little too late for New Hampshire, who ended the season in 7th place, 22 points behind regular season champions Western Mass Pioneers. Bjørn Hansen (Bjørn Hansen (soccer)) and Thomas McNeil shared the goal scoring spoils, with 6 goals each, while Ricky Charles, Hansen and James Proctor (James Proctor (soccer)) weighed in with 3 assists apiece.

Retrieved 12-01-2011 The '''Yankee Network''' was an American radio network. It was founded in 1930 by John Shepard III; in 1949, a controlling interest in the network was purchased by General Tire when Robert Shepard chairman of the network's parent company, The Shepard Company, decided that radio and its dependence on the FCC was too risky a business to bankroll any longer. Money was also needed to pay estate taxes following the death of John III's and Robert's father John Shepard Jr. the previous year. The flagship Yankee station was Boston's 1230, later 1260 and finally 680 WNAC (WRKO). The Yankee Network had affiliates elsewhere in Massachusetts (Fall River (Fall River, Massachusetts), Lowell (Lowell, Massachusetts)–Lawrence (Lawrence, Massachusetts), New Bedford (New Bedford, Massachusetts), Springfield (Springfield, Massachusetts)); Connecticut (Bridgeport (Bridgeport, Connecticut), Hartford (Hartford, Connecticut), Waterbury (Waterbury, Connecticut)); Rhode Island (Providence (Providence, Rhode Island)); New Hampshire (Manchester (Manchester, New Hampshire)), and Maine (Augusta (Augusta, Maine), Bangor (Bangor, Maine), Lewiston (Lewiston, Maine), Portland (Portland, Maine)). - 4 align "left" Boston-Providence-Worcester align "left" Boston, MA; Providence (Providence, Rhode Island), RI-MA; Worcester (Worcester, Massachusetts), MA-CT; Barnstable Town (Barnstable Town, Massachusetts), MA; Leominster (Leominster, Massachusetts)-Fitchburg (Fitchburg, Massachusetts), MA; New Bedford (New Bedford, Massachusetts), MA; Dover (Dover, New Hampshire)-Rochester (Rochester, New Hampshire), NH; Manchester (Manchester, New Hampshire), NH; Nashua (Nashua, New Hampshire), NH; Portsmouth (Portsmouth, New Hampshire), NH 6,692,295 -

Exile After teaching at St. John's College (St John's College, Oxford), Oxford (University of Oxford) from 1938 to 1940, Rothfels was interned on Isle of Man. In this period his only known publication is an essay from 1940 where he discusses Soviet and German interaction in the Baltics, in which he defended German hegemony over this "outpost of Western Europe and Western civilization" and complained about resettlement of Germans there due to Soviet-Nazi treaties Rothfels left for the United States, where he stayed until 1951, and took U.S. citizenship. He taught in the Brown University in Providence (Providence, Rhode Island), Rhode Island and at the University of Chicago in Chicago, Illinois where he became professor.
