He was promoted to Captain in June 1886. He became by order of President Grover Cleveland a Brigadier General and Chief of the Signal Corps of the Army in March of the following year. In that post, he was responsible over the next 20 years for construction of tens of thousands of miles of telegraph lines and submarine cables in Puerto Rico, Cuba, the Philippines, Alaska and elsewhere, and for the Army's earliest adoption of wireless telegraphy. He was also head of the Weather Service until it was transferred to the Department of Agriculture in 1891. He was a delegate to the International Telegraph Conference in London and the International Wireless Telegraph Congress in Berlin in 1903. In February 1906 he was promoted to Major General and placed in command of the Northern Division.

Search EUROPA Europe's position in the WTO farm trade talks Press conference Brussels, 16 December 2002 We have presented the Agriculture Ministers and the 133 Committee with our proposals setting out how we mean to meet our commitments in Doha to liberalise farm trade. It is an ambitious but realistic set of proposals, designed to show how seriously we mean to translate the Doha declaration into facts and keep to the Doha timescale. Unlike other WTO partners, we are not putting forward a "glossy" version where the packaging is worth more than the contents. And, again unlike others, we are not proposing that all the dismantling should come from everybody else. We are ready to contribute our share. The aims of today's package should be clear:
  • We want substantial and progressive liberalisation on a fair and balanced basis. We do not want to offer the developing countries merely high-sounding words, but quite concretely a better deal.

    What is biodiesel? Biodiesel (fatty acid alkyl esters) is a cleaner-burning diesel replacement fuel made from natural, renewable sources such as new and used vegetable oils and animal fats. Just like petroleum diesel, biodiesel operates in combustion-ignition engines. Blends of up to 20% biodiesel (mixed with petroleum diesel fuels) can be used in nearly all diesel equipment and are compatible with most storage and distribution equipment. These low level blends (20% and less) don't require any engine modifications and can provide the same payload capacity and range as diesel. Higher blends, even pure biodiesel (100% biodiesel, or B100), can be used in many engines built since 1994 with little or no modification. Transportation and storage, however, require special management. Material compatibility and warrantee issues haven't been resolved with higher blends. Using biodiesel in a conventional diesel engine substantially reduces emissions of unburned hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, sulfates, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, nitrated polycyclic aromtic hydrocarbons, and particulate matter. These reductions increase as the amount of biodiesel blended into diesel fuel increases. The best reductions are seen with B100.

    Although there are no hard and fast rules about the way that trusts, charities and foundations operate, there are a number of general points to consider when seeking assistance from them:
    • Trusts need to be satisfied that you have exhausted every other possible source of funding (sometimes this includes loans) before applying for charitable help Most trusts have specific eligibility criteria such as residency, age or nationality Trusts rarely make an award without reasonable assurances that any outstanding amount needed to complete the cost of the course will be met from other sources. Priority is often given to those who encounter unforeseen difficulties part-way through a course or those in the final few months of study
