Q: Some leaders have spoken of breaking up the port district. A: I believe the region is best served by cooperation. The collaboration of the five port cities can do for the region a much more effective job than the individual pieces could do.
Introduction This contribution is based on my work in radioactive waste management (RWM) in Europe, which extended for a decade until 2007 and included projects sponsored by the Swedish Nuclear Inspectorate and the European Union (Wene and Espejo 1999, Espejo et al, 2005, Espejo 2007). The key problem that underpinned all these projects was the need to understand and clarify the participation of local stakeholders in a national policy process, namely, the management of nuclear waste, in order to have truly democratic decisions. Stakeholders often feel that inclusion is not practiced.

Nicolas Steno (1 January 1638 – 25 November 1686 [ 7 ] [ 8 ] [ NS : 11 January 1638 – 5 December 1686] [ 7 ] ) was a Danish Catholic bishop and scientist and a pioneer in both anatomy and geology. Steno was trained in the classical texts on science; however, by 1659 he seriously questioned accepted knowledge of the natural world. [ 9 ] Importantly he questioned explanations for tear production, the idea that fossils grew in the ground and explanations of rock formation. His investigations and his subsequent conclusions on fossils and rock formation have led scholars to consider him one of the founders of modern stratigraphy and modern geology. [ 10 ] [ 11 ] Born to a Lutheran family, Steno converted to Catholicism in 1667. After his conversion, his interest for natural sciences rapidly waned giving way to his interest in theology. [ 12 ] At the beginning of 1675, he decided to become a priest.

Barbershop quartets, such as this US Navy group, sing 4-part pieces, made up of a melody line (normally the lead) and 3 harmony parts. In music , harmony is the use of simultaneous pitches ( tones , notes ), or chords . [ 1 ] The study of harmony involves chords and their construction and chord progressions and the principles of connection that govern them. [ 2 ] Harmony is often said to refer to the "vertical" aspect of music, as distinguished from melodic line , or the "horizontal" aspect. [ 3 ] Counterpoint , which refers to the interweaving of melodic lines, and polyphony , which refers to the relationship of separate independent voices, are thus sometimes distinguished from harmony. In popular and jazz harmony, chords are named by their root plus various terms and characters indicating their qualities. In many types of music, notably baroque, romantic, modern and jazz, chords are often augmented with "tensions".
Jean-Philippe Rameau ( French pronunciation: [ʒɑ̃filip ʁaˈmo] ; 25 September 1683 – 12 September 1764) was one of the most important French composers and music theorists of the Baroque era. [ 1 ] He replaced Jean-Baptiste Lully as the dominant composer of French opera and is also considered the leading French composer for the harpsichord of his time, alongside François Couperin . [ 2 ] Little is known about Rameau's early years, and it was not until the 1720s that he won fame as a major theorist of music with his Treatise on Harmony (1722). He was almost 50 before he embarked on the operatic career on which his reputation chiefly rests.
First page of the 1804 original edition The Napoleonic Code —or Code Napoléon (originally, the Code civil des français )—is the French civil code , established under Napoléon I in 1804. The code forbade privileges based on birth, allowed freedom of religion, and specified that government jobs should go to the most qualified. [ 1 ] It was drafted rapidly by a commission of four eminent jurists and entered into force on 21 March 1804. [ 1 ] The Code, with its stress on clearly written and accessible law, was a major step in replacing the previous patchwork of feudal laws.
H.U.V.A. Network is a musical collaboration between Magnus Birgersson of Solar Fields and Vincent Villius of Aes Dana . Their first track appeared on an Aes Dana album for Ultimae Records in 2001. [ 1 ] Since then, they have released 3 albums on Ultimae Records.
As video cameras seem to be getting smaller and smaller, their image quality seems to be getting better and better. The introduction of the iPhone is the perfect example of this phenomenon. The image sensor on Apple’s wildly popular multi-function phone is pretty amazing for what it is. The image is perfectly crisp and clear.

One night last week at The Dubliner, an Irish bar near the Capitol, an unassuming Denver billionaire who has quietly made himself a player in Washington’s relatively small media world, had dinner with his editors. It was a rare D.C. visit by Philip Anschutz, ranked by Forbes as the 37th richest man in America. But Anschutz’s ownership of The Washington Examiner, a daily tabloid, and The Weekly Standard, probably the nation’s most influential conservative magazine, has given him a megaphone for his right-wing views on taxes, national security and President Barack Obama that the 130 or so companies he owns have not provided him.
