Great Falls (Passaic River)

The Great Falls of the Passaic River is a prominent waterfall, 77 feet high, on the Passaic River in the city of Paterson in Passaic County, New Jersey, United States. The falls and surrounding area are protected as part of the Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park, administered by the National Park Service; the Congress authorized its establishment in 2009. One of the United States' largest waterfalls, it played a significant role in the early industrial development of New Jersey starting in the earliest days of the nation, it is part of the Great Falls of Paterson–Garret Mountain National Natural Landmark. It has been designated as a National Historic Landmark District since 1976; the Great Falls' raceway and power systems were designated an Historic Civil Engineering Landmark in 1977. Geologically, the falls were formed at the end of the last ice age 13,000 years ago; the Passaic had followed a shorter course through the Watchung Mountains near present-day Summit. As the glacier receded, the river's previous course was blocked by a newly formed moraine.

A large lake, called Glacial Lake Passaic, formed behind the Watchungs. As the ice receded, the river found a new circuitous route around the north end of the Watchungs, carving the spectacular falls through the underlying basalt, formed 200 million years ago; the falls became the site of a habitation for Lenape Native Americans, for Dutch settlers in the 1690s. In 1778, Alexander Hamilton visited the was impressed by its potential for industry; when Hamilton was the nation's Secretary of Treasury, he selected the site of the nation's first planned industrial city, which he called a "national manufactory." In 1791, Hamilton helped found the Society for the Establishment of Useful Manufactures, state-chartered private corporation to fulfill this vision. The town of Paterson was founded by the society and named after New Jersey Governor William Paterson in appreciation of his efforts to promote the society. Hamilton commissioned civil engineer Pierre Charles L'Enfant, responsible for the layout of the new capital at Washington, D.

C. to design the system of canals known as raceways supplying the power for the watermills in the new town. As a result, Paterson became the nucleus for a burgeoning mill industry. In 1792, David Godwin was commissioned to build the first water-powered cotton spinning mill in New Jersey, he subsequently built the first dam on the falls. In 1812, it was the site of the state's first continuous roll paper mill. Other products whose construction used the falls as a power source include the Rogers Locomotive Works, the Colt revolver, the USS Holland; the oldest extant structure in the historic district is the Phoenix Mill, built in 1813. The industrial area became the site of labor unrest, as it was a center for the 1913 Paterson silk strike. Immigrant workers, facing harsh conditions in factories staged numerous strikes, giving the United States its first organized labor movement; the society continued operation until 1945 when its charter and property were sold to the city of Paterson. The area fell into disuse with the steep decline of industry in the region during the 20th century.

In 1971, the Great Falls Preservation and Development Corporation was established to restore and redevelop the historic mill buildings and raceways. The State of New Jersey announced plans for a new urban state park in Paterson surrounding the Great Falls, called Great Falls State Park, in 2007; the master plan for the park called for utilizing surrounding industrial areas for parklands that include a trail network and recreation areas, creating new areas to view the falls. These plans were superseded by the establishment of Great Falls National Historical Park; the Falls are viewable from Haines Overlook Park on the south and Mary Ellen Kramer Park on the north. Drive-by viewing is available from McBride Avenue. A footbridge over the Falls gorge serves as an outlook point. A visitor's center at the corner of Spruce and McBride Avenues, in the Great Falls Historic District, provides a historical overview of the falls and the industrial and cultural history of Paterson. A record 177,000 visitors went to see the Great Falls in 2016.

The Great Falls of PatersonGarret Mountain is a National Natural Landmark designated in January 1967 and were expanded in April 1967 to include nearby Garret Mountain. Together they help demonstrate how jointed basaltic lava flow shaped the geology of the area during the Early Mesozoic period through both extrusion and intrusion; the designation protects the site from federal development, but not from local and state development. Redevelopment of the decayed adjacent industrial areas has been an ongoing controversial topic. An attempt in the 1990s to redevelop the adjacent Allied Textile Printing Co. facility, destroyed by fire in the 1980s, into prefabricated townhouses was approved by the city but repelled by a coalition of local citizens seeking to preserve the historic character of the district. Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park was authorized to be added to the National Park System of the United States under the Omnibus Public Land Management Act. On March 30, 2009, President Obama signed legislation authorizing the falls as a national historical park, which would provide additional federal protections for the 77-foot waterfall.

By 2011, Great Falls State Park and other land along the Passaic River were transferred to the federal government for the creation of the park. Formal establishment as a unit of the National Park System required action by the Secretary o

Yu Kanda

Yu Kanda is a character from D. Gray-man, a manga series created by writer Katsura Hoshino. Kanda is a young adult, an exorcist from an organization known as the Black Order. Like the other exorcists in the order, he is in charge of destroying demonic enemies known as Akuma, created by a man known as the Millennium Earl. For this, he uses. Kanda sides with the Black Order in their fight against the Earl's group, the Noah Family. Kanda is cold and antisocial toward his allies disliking it when people refer to him by his given name, Yu, he engages in fights with his frequent ally, the series' protagonist Allen Walker. As the series proceeds, it is revealed he is the result of an experiment from the Black Order that created his artificial body and merged it with the brain of a deceased exorcist. Outside the main series and the two anime adaptations, Kanda has appeared in the D. Gray-man light novels, the two video games of the series, the crossover game Jump Ultimate Stars; the character was created to bring a change to the series' predominant Western setting, with his design being based on the samurai of feudal Japan.

Hoshino found Kanda's physical attractiveness difficult to illustrate. Due to the draft for his original backstory having multiple plot holes, Hoshino rewrote it. In the official one, Hoshino created Kanda's first friend, Alma Karma, who plays a major impact in his backstory and growth across the manga. Various voice actors have been employed for the character, in both the original Japanese and the English dubbed version. Kanda has been popular with the series' readers appearing in top-ten lists of character polls and taking first place twice, much to Hoshino's surprise, he has appeared in other polls focused on anime characters in general. Merchandise based on him has been released, his appearances in the manga and anime series have been met with mixed reactions as result of Kanda's antisocial qualities, comparable with those seen in other series that have similar characters. On the other hand, his character development his relationship with Alma, his dynamic with Allen, his backstory have earned Kanda praise.

Response to Kanda's voice actors has been both positive and negative. The character of Yu Kanda was carried over from an unpublished work created by Katsura Hoshino, who designed Kanda to introduce a change into D. Gray-man's Western setting. Kanda's design "came out naturally" according to her, because in her early manga, before she became a full-time writer, she drew boys with Japanese swords, she liked young samurais, such as Okita Sōji of the Shinsengumi special police forces. He wears a long coat, though series' protagonist Allen Walker wore a similar coat, Hoshino felt that the design better suited Kanda's defensive personality. Multiple hairstyles and character designs' were considered by Hoshino before she chose the final version. Hoshino has said. Since his introduction, Kanda made small appearances until the tenth. In the release of this volume, Hoshino joked about. In response, within the manga Kanda impaled Hoshino's own character avatar, claiming that Hoshino did not know how to illustrate him well, so that Kanda made few appearances in the series' beginning.

Hoshino derived Kanda's surname from mitoshiro, or kanda, a rice paddy from which rice is offered to the gods. This is further addressed in volume twenty of the manga, which shows how Kanda was created in the "Mitoshiro World" during the Black Order's experiments to have more "Apostles of God". In the backstory, the designs for Kanda and his best friend, Alma Karma, contrasted with each other, Kanda retaining his feminine looks while Alma was presented as more masculine; the original basis for Kanda's feminine looks is that he was the reincarnation of a woman he was seeking. When this idea was changed, Kanda retained; when drawing Kanda, Hoshino pays more attention to the way she draws his hair and eyes, believing that the latter indicate the character's mood, that he "speaks with his eyes". Hoshino said that she took more care in drawing the highlights in Kanda's hair than she did with Lenalee Lee, another character with long hair, she noted that Kanda's early design featured large eyes because she had difficulty drawing finer eyes.

Kanda is well known in the series for his antisocial personality, which resulted in readers asking the author about him. In one fan letter, it was asked if Kanda was well meaning on the inside, the main characters found it unrealistic. In another question, a fan wonders if Hoshino gave him the first name "Yu" due to its similarities with Japanese words that resemble "The one who cannot read the atmosphere". Though Hoshino denied this, she admitted. While the characters deny that, the manga author confirmed. Hoshino referred to Kanda as the least intelligent protagonist in the series. Once Alma Karma's story arc finished in the series, Hoshino was able to finish Kanda's backstory, which she had promised to the manga's readers, it was very different and had too many inconsistencies. When the series was moved to a monthly serialization rather than weekly, Hoshino had rewritten Kanda's backstory. Once new prominent cha

Ex-Old Man

"Ex-Old Man" is a song recorded by American country music artist Kristen Kelly. It was released in April 2012 as Kelly's first single. Kelly wrote the song with Paul Overstreet. Billy Dukes of Taste of Country gave the song two and a half stars out of five, writing that "the plucky, mid-tempo cut showcases her big country voice, but seems written too long after the fact." Matt Bjorke of Roughstock gave the song a favorable review, saying that "the melody recalls classic hits of the distant past but it has a sunny disposition to it as well." Ben Foster of Country Universe gave the song a B+ grade, writing that "it’s a refreshing change of pace to hear a new artist taking a back-to-basics approach – revisiting a classic yet ignored country music theme, with a simple drum and acoustic guitar-driven arrangement that makes the song feel like country music." The music video was directed by Anna Mastro and premiered in August 2012. "Ex-Old Man" debuted at number 60 on the U. S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the week of March 24, 2012
