Kensington Market

Kensington Market is a distinctive multicultural neighbourhood in Downtown Toronto, Canada. The Market is an older neighbourhood and one of the city's most well-known. In November 2006, it was designated a National Historic Site of Canada. Robert Fulford wrote in 1999; the outdoor market has been photographed more than any other site in Toronto."Its approximate borders are College St. on the north, Spadina Ave. on the east, Dundas St. W. to the south, Bathurst St. to the west. Most of the neighbourhood's eclectic shops and other attractions are located along Augusta Ave. and neighbouring Nassau St. Baldwin St. and Kensington Ave. In addition to the Market, the neighbourhood features many Victorian homes, the Kensington Community School and Toronto Western Hospital. George Taylor Denison, after serving in the Canadian militia during the War of 1812, purchased an area of land in 1815 from Queen Street West to Bloor Street between where Augusta and Lippincott Streets now run. Denison used the area now known as Bellevue Square Park as a parade ground for his volunteer cavalry troop, which he commanded during the Upper Canada Rebellion.

This troop became the Governor General's Horse Guards. The Denison estate was subdivided in the 1850s. During the 1880s, houses were built on small plots for Irish and Scottish immigrant labourers coming to Toronto. Many of these houses still stand along Wales Avenue and elsewhere, these homes have been inhabited by many waves of immigrants in the decades that followed. Housing found closer to the market area tends to feature retail at the front of the house. During the early twentieth century, Kensington became populated by eastern European Jewish immigrants and some Italians, who occupied "The Ward", an overcrowded immigrant-reception area between Yonge Street and University Avenue, it was one of the poorer areas of the city. The area became known as "the Jewish Market". Jewish merchants operated small shops as tailors and bakers. Around 60,000 Jews lived in and around Kensington Market during the 1920s and 1930s, worshipping at over 30 local synagogues. From the beginning, the market sold items imported from the homelands of many immigrant communities.

After the Second World War, most of the Jewish population moved north to more prosperous neighbourhoods uptown or in the suburbs. During the 1950s, a large number of immigrants from the Azores, fleeing political conflict with the regime of António de Oliveira Salazar, moved into the area and further west along Dundas Street; the arrival of new waves of immigrants from the Caribbean and East Asia changed the community, making it more diverse as the century wore on. The Vietnam War brought a number of American political refugees to the neighbourhood, to nearby Baldwin Village, adding a unique utopian flavour to local politics; as Chinatown is located just east of Kensington, the Chinese are now the largest ethnic group. During the 1980s and 1990s, identifiable groups of immigrants came from Central America, Ethiopia, Iran, Vietnam and other global trouble spots. In the 1960s there were plans to tear down the densely packed small houses and replace them with large, apartment-style housing projects, as was done to neighbouring Alexandra Park.

These plans came to an end with the election of David Crombie as Mayor of Toronto. Crombie was opposed to the massive urban restructuring plans, in vogue in previous decades; the market resisted the recession of the 1980s thanks to a floating population of students attending George Brown College, where the Kensington Lofts are today. George Brown College sold the property in the mid 1990s and without the extra student traffic, many stores were victims of the recession of the mid to late 90s. In addition, many Portuguese store owners were by that time too old to continue working their small shops, which led to abundant vacancy, invited a new wave of immigrant entrepreneurs. Businesses like La Perola, El Emporio Latino and El Buen Precio took advantage of the growing wave of Latin American immigrants, opened the door to offering ethnic street foods. Jumbo Empanadas was one of the first to spice up the flavors of the market from a cart. All other Latin shops started selling their Pupusas, by 2000, a young couple of entrepreneurs opened the first taqueria in Canada, calling it "El Trompo".

All this movement lead to a rebirth of Augusta Avenue. However, there were seedy spots. A Nike store tried to open up in the market and the community rejected it strongly by dumping dozens of running shoes splattered with red paint in protest for the treatment Nike's workers receive around the world; such businesses transformed or moved out. The Nike store was a tremendous corporate failure. Today the neighbourhood is a noted tourist attraction, a centre of Toronto's cultural life as artists and writers moved into the area. Land prices in the area have increased but despite its increased appeal to professionals, Kensington remains a predominantly working class, immigrant community. Kensington is protected by a variety of policies to enhance the atmosphere, unique to the neighbourhood. In November, 2006, Kensington Market was proclaimed a National Historic Site of Canada. Toronto's "Official Plan", the vision for the city until 2026, does not designate much change for th

1127 Mimi

1127 Mimi is a dark background asteroid from the central regions of the asteroid belt. It was discovered on 13 January 1929, by Belgian astronomer Sylvain Arend at the Royal Observatory of Belgium in Uccle; the carbonaceous C-type asteroids has a rotation period of 12.7 hours and measures 47 kilometers in diameter. Through a glitch in the naming process, the asteroid received the name "Mimi" instead of "Robelmonte" as intended by the discoverer. Mimi is a non-family asteroid of the main belt's background population when applying the hierarchical clustering method to its proper orbital elements, it orbits the Sun in the central asteroid belt at a distance of 1.9–3.3 AU once every 4 years and 2 months. Its orbit has an inclination of 15 ° with respect to the ecliptic; the asteroid was first observed as A906 OA at Heidelberg Observatory in July 1906. The body's observation arc begins at Uccle in May 1934, more than 5 years after its official discovery observation; this minor planet was named after "Mimi" the wife of Belgian astronomer Eugène Delporte.

Through an error, the names intended for 1127 Mimi and 1145 Robelmonte had been switched, each name had been proposed by the discoverer of the other asteroid. The naming was mentioned in The Names of the Minor Planets by Paul Herget in 1955. Mimi has been characterized as a dark P-type asteroid by the Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer. In the Tholen classification, no unambiguous type could by assigned. Numerical color analysis showed that it is closest to the C-type asteroids and somewhat similar to the X-type asteroids. In January 2004, the best-rated rotational lightcurve of Mimi was obtained from photometric observations by astronomer John Menke at his Menke Observatory in Barnesville, Maryland. Lightcurve analysis gave a well-defined rotation period of 12.749 hours with a brightness amplitude of 0.72 magnitude. Two other lightcurves gave a shorter period of 8.541 hours with an amplitude of 0.93 and 0.95 magnitude, respectively. A 2016-published lightcurve, using modeled photometric data from the Lowell Photometric Database, gave a concurring period of 12.74557 hours, as well as a spin axis of in ecliptic coordinates.

According to the surveys carried out by the Infrared Astronomical Satellite IRAS, the Japanese Akari satellite and the NEOWISE mission of NASA's WISE telescope, Mimi measures between 46.006 and 50.67 kilometers in diameter and its surface has an albedo between 0.031 and 0.04. The Collaborative Asteroid Lightcurve Link adopts the results obtained by IRAS, that is, an albedo of 0.0336 and a diameter of 46.84 kilometers based on an absolute magnitude of 10.95.
