Greater Downtown Miami

Downtown Miami is an urban city center, based around the Central Business District of Miami, United States. In addition to the central business district, the area consists of the Brickell Financial District, Historic District, Government Center, Arts & Entertainment District and Park West; the neighborhood is divided by the Miami River and is bordered by Midtown to the north, Biscayne Bay to the east, Civic Center and Overtown to the west, Coconut Grove to the south. Brickell Avenue and Biscayne Boulevard are the main north–south roads, Flagler Street is the main east–west road; the neighborhood is defined by the Miami Downtown Development Authority as the 3.8-square-mile -area east of Interstate 95 between the Rickenbacker Causeway to the south and Julia Tuttle Causeway to the north. Locally known as Downtown, the area is a cultural and commercial center of South Florida, tracing its present-day history back to the 19th century. In recent years, Downtown Miami has grown and physically expanded to become the fastest-growing area in Miami, with rapid increase in population and the greatest concentration of high-rises in the region.

Greater Downtown is home to many major museums, education centers, company headquarters, government offices, theaters and many of the oldest buildings in the city. Downtown Miami is the historic heart of Miami, along with Coconut Grove, is the oldest settled area of Miami, with early pioneer settlement dating to the early 19th century. Urban development began in the 1890s with the construction of the Florida East Coast Railway by Standard Oil industrialist Henry Flagler down to Miami at the insistence of Julia Tuttle. Flagler, along with developers such as William Brickell and George E. Merrick helped bring developer interest to the city with the construction of hotels, resorts and the extension of Flagler's rail line. Flagler Street, originating in Downtown, is a major east–west road in Miami named after the tycoon; as of 2009, there are 71,000 year-round residents in Greater Downtown, with close to 200,000 populating the Downtown area during the daytime, making Downtown Miami one of the most populous downtowns in the U.

S. after New York City and Chicago. With recent mass construction of high-rise residential buildings and office towers, Downtown has experienced large growth, with new shops, bars and restaurants opening up, attracting many new residents. Along with Brickell, Downtown has grown from 40,000 residents in 2000, to over 70,000 in 2009, making it one of the fastest-growing areas in Florida, it was estimated in February 2010, that about 550 new residents move to the Downtown area every month. As of 2009, over 190,000 office employees work in Brickell. Downtown is served by the Miami Metrorail at Historic Overtown/Lyric Theatre, Government Center, Brickell stations, accessible from Broward and Palm Beach counties via Tri-Rail transfer station; the Metro connects to the Downtown Metromover, which encompasses 22 stations on the clockwise Inner loop and counterclockwise Brickell and Omni branch loops. Government Center station is Downtown's main station and allows for transfers to all Metromover loops, Metrorail trains, Metrobus lines at the Stephen P. Clark Government Center.

Noo Trybe Records is an American hip hop record label established in 1994 and operated as a sublabel of Virgin Records. It was the distributor of several independent hip hop labels including Rap-A-Lot Records and AWOL. A portion of Noo Trybe's roster came from several artists who were absorbed from EMI when it was disbanded, which included Gang Starr and AZ. Other Virgin acts such as Shyheim, who signed with the label in 1993, were transferred to the new label. One of the label's biggest successes was the group Luniz. Rap-A-Lot's distribution was absorbed by Virgin proper in 1998, in 1999, the label was absorbed by its parent. 1994 Scarface - The Diary 1995 Luniz – Operation Stackola 1996 Shyheim – The Lost Generation Various artists – Original Gangstas 1997 3X Krazy – Stackin Chips Big Mike – Still Serious Luniz – Lunitik Muzik Rappin' 4-Tay4 tha Hard Way 1998 AZ – Pieces of a Man Gang Starr – Moment of Truth Various artists – Caught Up 1999 Road DawgsDon't Be Saprize Gang Starr - Full Clip: A Decade of Gang Starr "Noo Trybe Records".


Molybdenum trioxide

Molybdenum trioxide is chemical compound with the formula MoO3. This compound is produced on the largest scale of any molybdenum compound, it is an intermediate in the production of molybdenum metal. It is an important industrial catalyst. Molybdenum trioxide occurs as the rare mineral molybdite. In the gas phase, three oxygen atoms are double bonded to the central molybdenum atom. In the solid state, anhydrous MoO3 is composed of layers of distorted MoO6 octahedra in an orthorhombic crystal; the octahedra share edges and form chains. The octahedra have one short molybdenum-oxygen bond to a non-bridging oxygen. Known is a metastable form of MoO3 with a WO3-like structure. MoO3 is produced industrially by roasting molybdenum disulfide, the chief ore of molybdenum: 2 MoS2 + 7 O2 → 2 MoO3 + 4 SO2The laboratory synthesis of the dihydrate entails acidification of aqueous solutions of sodium molybdate with perchloric acid: Na2MoO4 + H2O + 2 HClO4 → MoO32 + 2 NaClO4The dihydrate loses water to give the monohydrate.

Both are bright yellow in color. Molybdenum trioxide dissolves in water to give "molybdic acid". In base, it dissolves to afford the molybdate anion. Molybdenum trioxide is used to manufacture molybdenum metal, which serves as an additive to steel and corrosion-resistant alloys; the relevant conversion entails treatment of MoO3 with hydrogen at elevated temperatures: MoO3 + 3 H2 → Mo + 3 H2OIt is a component of the co-catalyst used in the industrial production of acrylonitrile by the oxidation of propene and ammonia. Because of its layered structure and the ease of the Mo/Mo coupling, MoO3 is of interest in electrochemical devices and displays. Molybdenum trioxide has been suggested as a potential anti-microbial agent, e.g. in polymers. In contact with water, it forms H + ions. Haynes, William M. ed.. CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics.
