Extractions: Moscow Place Names Here is an article which tries to explain why places in the US were called Moscow . You can see that it is a very complicated task. I don't expect you to provide this level of details in Project #2, but do try to make some sense of the data. Enjoy the place name assignment. U.S. Places Called Moscow Irina Vasiliev, Department of Geography, Syracuse University This paper examines naming patterns for the Moscows in the United States . Since 1800, 49 populated places have been named Moscow in the United States. Many have disappeared or changed their names. Today, there are 27. Not all of the Moscows are connected to each other. Some belong to groups that relate to a central notion from which spokes radiate to each place. Others are linked by a form of place-name genealogy by which a linear structure describes the relationships among the Moscow points. For others, the links are unknown, but, even for these, the name Moscow summons the impression of a cultured, mature city, characteristics entirely lacking in the new Moscows of the l800s in the interior of the United States. Napoleon's Influence Moscows of American Origin When the village became large enough to have a post office, the name had to be changed because another Greenville, in Texas, already had a post office. So, in memory of David Green's home in Tennessee, the post office was named Moscow (Heritage 1978). The follow-the-dot pattern is fragmented for these transferred Moscows one or two-maybe three-places linked to each other at a time. Not a very cohesive group as a single unit but certainly a group of similar stories deserving of a classification category of their invoking the image of Moscow of the rest of the Moscows, a large group was named simply for the Russian city. Often in the l9th century, exotic names were popular as many new communities popped up across the country. Post office regulations required that there be only one of each place name in a state (Stewart 1970).

Extractions: Racisms Frontier: The Untold Story of Discrimination and Division in Alaska Chapter 6 Recommendations The Alaska Advisory Committee issues this report on the basis of fact-finding, including the record from its August and October 2001 community forums in Anchorage. At these forums, the Advisory Committee heard from elected public officials, agency directors, public and private organization leaders, and the general public; examined this record; and considered the views of all parties submitting testimony. The Advisory Committee believes the state of Alaska is in a unique position to act on a variety of concerns brought to its attention. The Advisory Committee firmly believes that the challenges presented by geography and the location of rural villages can be met by creativity, reallocation of resources, and greater use of technology. In the area of the administration of justice, the Advisory Committee is concerned about allegations suggesting a disparity in the law enforcement services provided to off-road and on-road communities; the disparity in response time for law enforcement incidents across the state; that there are no parole and probation officers in the villages; that the legislature fails to provide funds for probation and parole in the villages; that there are insufficient alcohol treatment programs in rural areas; that the state of Alaska prohibits 227 tribal governments from exercising law enforcement and providing judicial services under tribal laws; that there are no courts available in some rural areas; that trials for Alaska Natives are not before a jury of their peers because trials using the jury system are held in regional centers or large cities; and that there is a lack of public trust in the judicial system.

Extractions: Climate and changes in it regardless of their cause matter to people, communities and businesses. Global warming is likely to bring many changes to the nation. The United States as a whole is in a strong economic position to adapt to many of these changes, but adaptation is often expensive, not always possible or successful, and during transitions ecosystems, communities, and individuals could suffer. Moreover, national impact summaries disguise local dislocations and disruptions to the ways we live, work and recreate. Climate change adds a serious stress to our already threatened resources and treasured places. Overall impact statements also mask significant opportunities. To minimize the negative changes and make the most of the positive changes we need to take a close look at how climate change will affect each region. How will California experience the effects of global warming? And how can we respond? Californias remarkable quality of life and economic strength is built on a rich and diverse base of natural capital. From a vast array of ecosystems and species to bountiful resources and a unique geography, California is endowed with natural assets that underpin its success and wealth. National treasures like Yosemite and the redwoods share the land with major metropolitan areas and some of the most productive agriculture in the world. Changes in climate will impact California in important ways. The specific impacts are dependent on climate changes that are not fully understood or predictable, but it is possible to identify potential impacts based on possible futures as outlined by the science.

Extractions: Deathlands Environment Page version 1.12 This page will deal with the environment and geography of the Deathlands. It is my wish to cover the weather, people, and other generalities of the series on this page. Geography General: Nearly every section of the globe has suffered seismic damage caused from the war. Not a single section of the globe was untouched. Highways, ruins, even the mountains themselves show evidence of the earth movements. Entire coastal sections slipped into the oceans. Islands were created where there were none. Rivers changed course. Lakes dried up and new lakes were born. Entire mountains disappeared while new mountains were born elsewhere. So many nukes exploded over the continent that huge areas have become uninhabitable for possibly thousands of years do to so much hard radiation. Some area's of the globe may never be habitable again due to 'Dirty' bombs which saturated the area with hard radiation. This of course spawned the mutants that roam the land. Due to the sheer amount of radiation, most people carry miniature rad counters which alert them to potential hot spots, which anyone with any sense would studiously avoid as much as possible. Radiation sickness is still a major killer in the Deathlands, as well as Radiation induced Cancer which claims lives at a horrendous rate. The fact that so many weapons landed caused a great deal of damage to the planets tectonic plates. The result were earthquakes. Some so massive they wiped out entire mountain ranges, caused most of California to slip into the ocean, and quakes to occur in places that never had quakes before. Everyone in the Deathlands have encountered quakes at least several times in their lives. It is nearly a daily occurrence in some parts of the world.

Extractions: Unusual economics, diverse population make Alaska hard to compare. laska's unique geography and sparse population are both a blessing and a burden for the state's school system. The oil reserves under its Arctic Ocean coastline give educators a level of per-pupil resources their colleagues in the lower 48 can only dream about. But that uncommon revenue source is accompanied by uncommonand uncommonly expensivedemands. The state's 127,000 students include about 23,000 rural children scattered across 500,000 square miles of wilderness and 28,000 Native Alaskan children with unusual educational and social needs. "The biggest challenge we face is bringing a quality learning environment to a very diverse population, both geographically and culturally," says Shirley J. Holloway, the state commissioner of education. There is an obvious divide in Alaskan life, as well as in Alaskan education, separating the cities and towns accessible by paved road from the rural villages that can be reached only by plane, boat, snowmobile, or dog sled, depending on the season. Almost 99,000 of the state's students live in "urban" Alaskan communitiesAnchorage, Fairbanks, and surrounding towns, and the larger cities of the southeastern islands, such as Juneau and Sitkaor semirural towns on the road and ferry system. These communities are 60% to 90% white and contain most of the 14,000 African-American, Hispanic, and Asian children enrolled in Alaskan public schools.

The attractiveness of older small towns and a scattering of newer developments demonstrate the appeal of certain characteristics. Lively downtown areas, streets designed for pedestrians as much as autos, a scale and pattern of development that allows us meet everyday needs by walking, are all key factors in ensuring cities provide a high quality of life. The Problem The standard style of suburban development since the 1950s produces less livable communities. Uses are rigorously separated into housing subdivisions, shopping malls, and business parks, which are then segregated by walls and wide collector streets. Residents must depend on cars for all their shopping, family and recreational trips. Traffic congestion is the norm. A sense of community is often lacking.
