Irish moss (drink)

Irish moss is a Jamaican soft drink in which the main ingredient is the marine red algae Gracilaria spp. boiled in milk with sugar or honey and various spices added such as vanilla and nutmeg. Depending on the recipe, other ingredients may include sweetened condensed milk and additional thickening agents such as gum arabic or isinglass, as well as ingredients like rolled oats or linseed oil to add extra fat content. A peanut-flavored version is widely available, based upon another drink popular in Jamaica, peanut punch. Carrageenan in the cell walls of the seaweed gives the drink a distinctive thick consistency and rich mouthfeel; the Irish moss drink has traditionally been homemade and sold at roadside "punch man" stalls alongside peanut punch and other refreshing drinks, but mass-produced commercial canned versions are now common as well. Irish moss is attributed various health properties as it is high in calories and rich in protein, making it a favorite among athletes and bodybuilders, a reputed cure for digestive problems like ulcers and tonic for mood disorders.

The drink is widely marketed as an aphrodisiac for men. Irish moss is often available at bars in Jamaica as a mixer for rum or whiskey, or Guinness stout Protein shake Peanut punch Jamaican cuisine

North Carolina Highway 93

North Carolina Highway 93 is a primary state highway in the U. S. state of North Carolina. It runs from the Virginia state line to the community of Twin Oaks in Alleghany County. NC 93 begins at the Virginia state line and goes southeast for 10 miles on a curvy road that ends at US 221 just outside of Twin Oaks, it is overlapped with NC Bike Route 4 along the entire length of the route. Established as North Carolina Highway 260 in 1935, it was renumbered in 1940 to match the older Virginia State Route 93. In 1977, NC 93 was rerouted in Piney Creek to its current routing. NC 93 existed two times before it current routing: In 1929, it was established as a new road from Pittsboro to Graham. In 1940, it was renumbered as NC 87, with its 1933 extension forming part of NC 54. In 1940, NC 93 was established as a connector between Tramway to Jonesboro, it was renumbered to NC 78 in late 1940 when NCDOT decided it was more important to match Virginia instead.

Doncourt-lès-Conflans Airport

Doncourt-lès-Conflans Airport is a regional airport in France, located 6 miles south-southwest of Homécourt. Doncourt-lès-Conflans Airport's origins begin in September 1944 when the airfield was built by the United States Army Air Forces IX Engineer Command 830th Engineering Aviation Regiment. Allied ground forces had moved though the area during the Northern France Campaign in early September, on `9 September the combat engineers arrived to lay down a temporary airfield to support the ground forces in their advance against enemy forces; the 830th EAR laid down a 5000' grass runway aligned east–west, along with a small support area. The airfield was declared operationally ready on 20 September and was designated as Advanced Landing Ground "A-94", or "Conflans Airfield"; the airfield was used by various transport units for combat resupply of units and for casualty evacuation. In late October, the 830th Engineering Aviation Regiment returned to the airfield and improved the facility, laying down an all-weather Pierced Steel Planking runway for Ninth Air Force combat fighter use along with upgrading the support site with tents for billeting and for support facilities.

With the upgraded facility, combat units arrived at Conflans. The first was the 10th Reconnaissance Group, which based various photo-reconnaissance aircraft at the field from 20 November 1944 until March 1945. In mid-March, the 10th moved out and was replaced by the 367th Fighter Group, which flew P-38 Lightnings until 20 April 1945. By the end of April the airfield had become redundant combat needs and the facility was returned to being a S&E airfield, was used until being closed on 22 May 1945; the wartime airfield was turned over to French authorities. Advanced Landing Ground After the war, the wartime faculties were all removed; the metal PSP runway was picked up being replaced by a turf runway, along with taxiways and a turf parking ramp. Doncourt-lès-Conflans Airport today is a well-equipped general aviation airport. No evidence of the wartime airfield remains; this article incorporates public domain material from the Air Force Historical Research Agency website Airport information for LFGR at Great Circle Mapper.

Anthony Walton White was a Brigadier General in the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War who had served as an aide-de-camp to General George Washington. He was born on July 1750 to Elizabeth Morris and Anthony White III in New Brunswick, New Jersey, his paternal great-grandfather, Anthony White I, was a royalist who, after the execution of Charles I, emigrated to Bermuda and became connected with the government of the islands of which his son, Anthony White II, grandson, Leonard White, were chief justices. White's father, Anthony White III, moved to the United States from Bermuda and married Elizabeth Morris, the daughter of Governor Lewis Morris, a Governor of New Jersey, his elder sister, Euphemia White, was the second wife of William Paterson. White received his education under the immediate direction of his father. At the age of twenty-five, his time was employed in study and in assisting his father in the management of his large estates. In October 1775, he obtained a commission as aide-de-camp to General George Washington.

On February 9, 1776, White was commissioned by the Continental Congress as the lieutenant colonel of the 3rd New Jersey Regiment. He was engaged in the service in the North until 1780, being successively appointed Lieutenant Colonel of the 4th Continental Light Dragoons in the Continental army, February 13, 1777, lieutenant colonel commandant of the 1st Continental Light Dragoons, December 10, 1779, colonel, February 16, 1780. At that time, he was ordered by General Washington to take command of all the cavalry in the southern army, upon his own personal credit, equipped two regiments with which to operate against Lord Cornwallis in South Carolina. On May 6, 1780, with the remnant of Major Benjamin Huger's cavalry, he crossed the Santee River and captured a small party of British, but while waiting at Lanneau's Ferry to recross the river, he was surprised and defeated by Col. Banastre Tarleton. White and many of his troops were taken prisoner. In 1781 he was ordered to join the army under Lafayette in Virginia, on his march to that state had several successful encounters with Colonel Tarleton.

On May 21, 1782, White was present with General Anthony Wayne in the movement before Savannah. These debts he was subsequently obliged to pay at enormous sacrifices of his own property, and, on returning to the North at the close of the war, his financial ruin was completed by entering into speculation at the persuasion of military friends. In 1793, White moved from New York, where he had resided for about ten years, back to New Brunswick, New Jersey. In 1794, he was appointed by President Washington as a brigadier general of cavalry in the expedition against the insurgents of the Whiskey Rebellion, serving under General Henry Lee.

Together, they had a daughter: Eliza Mary White, he died on February 10, 1803, at age 52, was buried at Christ Church Episcopal Churchyard in New Brunswick, New Jersey. White's grandson, Anthony Walton White Evans, was a civil engineer who worked on railroad and canal commissions in North and South America during the mid-nineteenth century.
