19 Former New York City Movie Palaces — And What They Are Now 19 Former New York City Movie Palaces — And What They Are Now Hundreds of movie theaters have come and gone in New York City since the grand era of movie palaces and 25-cent matinées. While many have sadly been entirely demolished or lie in ruin, others remain hidden in plain sight, now repurposed as a Starbucks, a Modell’s, or… another Modell’s. Scattered around the city are dozens of movie theaters that are living a second life as a chain store, a church, or a gym. Their marquees may be stripped and their interiors mostly gutted, but the outlines of an old theater can still be seen if you know where to look. Image via The Flatbush Pavilion in Park Slope, Brooklyn was originally a silent film theater called The Bunny Theater, built by film star John Bunny in 1912.

A photograph of an historical marker in Monroe Louisiana commemorating the location of Fort Miro. Learn more » Located within the present bounds of the city of Monroe, Fort Miro was a late eighteenth-century Spanish outpost that served the Ouachita River valley. Named after Gov. Beginnings During the late 1700s, because the Spanish Crown faced increasing pressure from other imperialist European powers, the newly formed United States, and Native Americans, it sought to stabilize and secure its vast North American holdings. This political environment prompted Governor Miró to select Don Juan Filhiol, an officer at the well-established Opelousas Post, to found and serve as commandant of a new post in the remote Ouachita District, in what is today part of northeast Louisiana. In 1783 Filhiol departed New Orleans via keelboat for the difficult wilderness journey with a few soldiers and slaves, a new wife, and provisions.

This is the city of Gayarre and Lafcadio Hearn, the city around which Cable wove his wonderful romances. Their genius has made the Quarter famous wherever the name of New Orleans is known. Poetry and romance, beautiful traditions and legends have combined to cast an air of unreality over the history of this old section, but truth is stranger than fiction and the legends associated with points of interest in the old " " as indicated in this Guide, have been verified by careful historians.

Will My Phone Work During a Power Outage? That Depends... | Norton Community Normally in this space I pass along tips and guidance for online safety issues. Today, I want to remind you of an offline safety issue, namely how you can communicate with family and friends during a natural disaster. Whether you live in a tornado alley, hurricane zone or near an earthquake fault, Mother Nature’s reach is widespread and often surprising in her capriciousness. Note the August 2011 earthquake in Virginia (link is external) as an example. The US government has some excellent reminders (link is external) of what systems are most vulnerable during a crisis, whether due to a loss of electrical power or simply the increased volume of messages that will be sent. During the 1994 Northridge quake in Southern California, this was our exact experience. Many people are enjoying the low cost and free phone calls you can make using Voice Over Internet Protocol or VOIP. Will your cable internet work in a power outage?
Do Cell Phones Work During Power Outages? | Better Faster Cheaper Easier I was living in Burien Washington (Seattle Annexation Neighborhood) and was involved in the "hurricane" storms of 2006, matter of fact they happened on my birthday. I was a T-Mobile customer then, my roommates Cingular (pre AT&T name change), and other friends Verizon and Sprint customers. When our power went out, the battery backup at the building I lived (which had GSM AT&T/T-Mobile towers built on it) went on immediately. By the next morning, Comcast was totally dead, and internet on the phones were dead. Driving back through White Center toward downtown, I was able to still complete calls for the next 24 hours. Estimates were correct, within 3 days (our power was off for 5 FULL DAYS!) I asked my friend at Sprint why, she didnt really have an explanation but said, "...maybe cause it uses less power to transmit the calls TO the phone and the phone uses more of its battery to pick up the call and transmit it to the station. So.... Does this make CDMA better in power outages then GSM?
The first Ubuntu-based convergence tablet is finally here. Ubuntu-maker Canonical and BQ, an electronics maker based in Spain, opened the BQ Aquaris M10 Ubuntu Edition for preorder today, with global shipping prices starting at €259.90 (about $291). The devices are slated to start shipping in early April. Protip: If you’re ordering the Ubuntu Tablet, make sure you click through to BQ from Canonical’s tablet devices page to get the worldwide pricing and shipping options. The new tablet features Canonical’s Ubuntu OS version 15.04, Vivid Vervet, and is supposed to feature a Continuum-style PC-tablet convergence feature. The story behind the story: Canonical has been talking about mobile-PC convergence for years but it appears the feature is finally here in a consumer-ready product. That said, the Ubuntu tablet is still running on an ARM processor, while most Linux applications are written for x86. The Aquaris M10 Ubuntu tablet will come in two flavors: FHD and HD. The world's first Ubuntu tablet opens preorders, converging PCs and mobile devices
Sign in to write a review Sort by: Great to finally have smart contract support in VS! Looking forward to a deeper integration! This is exactly what we need to attract Windows developers to Ethereum. really easy integration. It's just awesome to have all deployment pieces together in one single environment! Restart visual studio to solve the issue with the Readme reloading. Good start! This extension is not a traditional type of application. The README.html reloads constantly effectively blocking VS UI - great idea but it's unusable. Solidity extension
