Dos Hermanas

Dos Hermanas is a Spanish city 15 km south of Seville in Andalusia, with a population of 131,317 as of 2015. The city's name, which means "two sisters", dates from its founding in 1248 by King Ferdinand III of Castile and honours Elvira and Estefanía Nazareno, the two sisters of Gonzalo Nazareno, one of the king's principal military commanders. For this reason natives of Dos Hermanas are called nazarenos/as. In Tirso de Molina's play El burlador de Sevilla y convidado de piedra, Dos Hermanas is mentioned as the place where Don Juan Tenorio manages to interpose himself in the marriage of two plebeians and Batricio, whom he cleverly deceives; the Trickster of Seville and Stone Guest is the play from which the myth of "Don Juan" derives the name. The main economic activities of the city today are the production and distribution of olive oil and "Spanish olives", together with a significant number of service industries. At Dos Hermanas, south of Los Palacios, there is a powerful broadcasting mediumwave facility with a 232 metre tall guyed mast, used for the transmission of the first program of RNE with 300 kW on 684 kHz.

The transmitter, most designated as "RNE-1 Sevilla" can be received at night throughout Europe and northern Africa. The members of Spanish lounge music duo Los del Río are natives of Dos Hermanas and still reside in the city. Spanish popstar Melody comes from Dos Hermanas. In 2014 a controversy was sparked when an interviewer for Cuatro TV asked her how come she spoke so well'in spite of coming from Dos Hermanas'; this sparked a large debate on Madrid-centric snobbery. Its football club, Dos Hermanas CF, was founded in 1971, it plays in the highest league in the region. It has had four spells playing in national leagues, including the third tier, the Segunda B, between 1999 and 2002, it returned to regional football in 2010.

Webster Groves High School

Webster Groves High School is a public secondary school in Webster Groves, United States. It is located at 100 Selma Ave, Webster Groves, MO; the school is part of the Webster Groves School District and its current principal is Matt Irvin. Webster Groves High School was first established in 1889 as a ninth grade course; the original high school building was located on Gray Avenue, repurposed as Bristol Elementary School. In 1906, a new building for the school was built at 100 Selma Avenue. James Hixson served as principal from 1907 to 1943. At first the high school was a two-story brick building with an auditorium. In 1913 two wings were added to the school, which contained a gymnasium. In 1917 an Armory was erected, but it was converted to the gymnasium/lunch room after World War I. In 1946 that building was replaced by Roberts Gym, named after Charles A. Roberts, who coached and taught at the school for 39 years. In the 1920s a three-story section and public library were added. In 1935 an addition was completed that added the drama, home economics, science department classrooms.

Howard Latta's was principal from 1943 to 1968. WGHS was racially integrated in 1956, in 1966 a three-story wing was added onto the back of the building and the Herbert Schooling Library was donated. Jerry Knight was principal from 1969 to 1986. Patricia Voss was principal 1994–2003. Since 1977, Voss had been an assistant principal at the high school. In October 2002 a white powdery substance found in a tissue box provoked a two-hour lockdown. Investigators determined the substance was not Anthrax; the Webster Groves School Board appointed Jon Clark as principal in 2003. Clark had been an assistant principal at the high school for seven years. In 2011, construction began on a 106,000-square-foot addition to the school. Completed in 2012, this addition included new classrooms, state-of-the-art science labs, vocational labs, a main band room, private band practice rooms and art studios; the roof of the building features a vegetation area surrounded by a glass curtain wall. In addition, three 20,000 gallon water harvesting tanks are located at the base of the building for rain collection and irrigation for the field behind the building.

The expansion was built to resemble the look of the existing building, including the use of terrazzo floors and steps, limestone accents. The Webster Groves High School building has 84 classrooms along with an auditorium, a media center, a theater, it has a baseball and softball field to the east. Moss Field, the football stadium, is located at Hixon Middle School at 630 South Elm Avenue, a short drive from the high school; the field has been renovated several times.

Rhinelander Waldo

Rhinelander Waldo was appointed the seventh New York City Fire Commissioner by Mayor William Jay Gaynor on January 13, 1910. He resigned on May 23, 1911, less than two months after the deadly Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire to accept an appointment as the eighth New York City Police Commissioner. On December 31, 1913, he was dismissed by Ardolph Kline. Among other achievements in office, Waldo contributed to the motorization of both departments. Rhinelander Waldo was born on May 24, 1877 in New York City to Francis William "Frank" Waldo, a stockbroker who died in 1878, Gertrude Rhinelander Waldo, an American heiress known for commissioning the Rhinelander Mansion located in Manhattan at 867 Madison Avenue on the south-east corner of 72nd Street, designed in the 1890s by Kimball & Thompson and completed in 1898. Waldo was educated at the Berkeley School and the Columbia University School of Mines before attending the United States Military Academy at West Point, he joined the Seventeenth Infantry Regiment of the United States Army as a Second Lieutenant in 1899, after the United States had occupied the Philippine Islands in the Spanish–American War.

In the course of nearly four years in the Philippines, he served under General Arthur MacArthur, Jr. was on the staff of General Leonard Wood during the Moro rebellion, commanded a battalion of Philippine Scouts. He resigned from the Army in 1905 with the rank of Captain, became New York's First Deputy Commissioner of Police in January 1906, at the age of 28. Waldo, who had served as New York City Fire Commissioner since the beginning of Mayor Gaynor's term in January 1910, was in office at the time of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire which occurred on March 25, 1911 and killed 146 people. On June 9, 1911, only 17 days after taking office as Police Commissioner, Waldo founded the motor-cycle squad, organized under the Office of Street Traffic Regulation Bureau. Another of his early acts as Police Commissioner was the appointment of three "Strong Arm" anti-vice squads and their commanders—one of whom, Charles Becker, was executed for complicity in the July 1912 murder of the bookmaker Herman Rosenthal.

Acting Mayor Ardolph Kline's elected successor, John Purroy Mitchel, indicated before taking office at noon on January 1, 1914, that he would not keep Commissioner Waldo in office. Waldo tendered his resignation effective at midnight December 31, 1913, after transferring or accepting resignations from most of the department's senior officers and specialists. Amid much confusion and discord, Mayor Kline refused to accept Waldo's resignation and fired him instead. In 1916, Waldo held a commission as Major in the Infantry Officers Reserve Corps, he went into World War I as a Major in the 301st Infantry of the National Army in 1917. After serving in France, he was honorably discharged in 1919 and in 1923 was commissioned a Colonel in the reserve. After he was out of office, he stayed involved with political affairs and during the commissionership of Richard Enright, Waldo served for a time as special deputy but resigned in September 1924 to organize the Coolidge Nonpartisan League, a step that "marked his formal renunciation of Tammany Hall in favor of the Republican Party."

Around this time, he was mentioned as a possible candidate for Governor General of the Philippines. On April 20, 1910, he was married to Virginia Otis Heckscher at the country house of artist Charles H. Ebert in Greenwich, Connecticut. Virginia, a daughter of Robert M. Otis and Helen Otis of Richmond, was twice widowed before their marriage, her second marriage was to John Gerard Heckscher who died in 1908. He died on August 1927 in his home in Philipse Road in Garrison, New York of sepsis. Waldo was portrayed by James Cagney in the 1981 film Ragtime, despite the age difference However, in E. L. Doctorow's original 1975 novel Ragtime from which the film was adapted, Waldo's role in the narrative is minor while Charles S. Whitman, the real-life Manhattan District Attorney at the time, performs most of the fictional words and deeds that the film would assign to Waldo.

Boulevard Fournier

Boulevard Fournier is a main route in the city of Gatineau, Quebec that connects the Gatineau and Hull sectors. It starts as the extension of Boulevard Greber in the old city of Gatineau and ends at the entrance of the downtown core where it becomes Boulevard Maisonneuve which connects the Portage Bridge towards Ottawa, it was once part of Route 148 until the Quebec Ministry of Transportation rerouted the provincial highway onto Autoroute 50 and Autoroute 5 as a concurrency. The road crosses right in the middle of Lac Leamy Park one of the key greenspaces of the city. A road connects Fournier to the Lake and its beaches itself. Several bike paths connect the boulevard to the lake or Jacques Cartier Park and downtown Gatineau and Ottawa; the artery was named after Alphonse Fournier. The Lady Aberdeen Bridge that crosses the Gatineau River is the oldest bridge connecting the former city of Gatineau to the former City of Hull. Only a two-lane bridge, it was built at the beginning in 1894 and named the Gatineau Bridge.

It was renamed Lady Aberdeen for the wife of former Governor General of Canada John Hamilton-Gordon, 1st Marquess of Aberdeen and Temair, Ishbel Maria Marjoribanks when she nearly drowned near the bridge while returning from a meeting at the nearby Saint-François-de-Sales church, was rescued by local villagers. It was replaced in 1931 by the current structure by the Dominion Bridge Company. However, due to the population growth in the Pointe-Gatineau sector, a second bridge, used for southbound commuters was built; the city of Gatineau was concerned about the structure of the older portion of the bridge and is doing repairs to solidify it. It imposed a weight restriction on the area prompting heavy trucks to travel on Autoroute 50. Major reconstruction of the old structure started in 2006 and continued for most of 2007. In 2007, the construction forced the shut down of the northbound lanes towards Pointe-Gatineau, diverting the traffic towards the southbound structure with one lane in each direction except during peak periods where it is closed to northbound traffic in the morning and southbound traffic in the afternoon.

Cyclist and pedestrian traffic are forced to use a narrow lane beside it. Part of the Route Verte provincial bicycle network, TV station CHOT-TV discussed during a news report safety issues during the construction period due to the high risk of accidents between cyclists and vehicles as one of the collisions during the summer was a fatal one, it is the main route used by STO buses traveling to and from downtown Gatineau and the old Gatineau sector and there are bus lanes along most of the stretch. Those lanes were necessary due to the high flow of traffic, since this road is used as an alternative to Autoroute 50. Express routes and some regular routes travels on Fournier, but express routes do not serve the stops due to a closed-doors policy that speed up travel time for express users. On both sides of the bridges, there are transit signal priorities in which buses can cross the intersection before the green light preventing to be caught in line-ups; the measures are in place until the STO's Rapibus, which will follow the Quebec-Gatineau Railway Line, will be in operation starting in 2010.
