For example, whereas the town, state construction for all addresses in Manhattan is New York, New York, all neighborhoods in Brooklyn use Brooklyn, New York, residents of College Point would use the construction College Point, New York or Flushing, New York instead of Queens, New York. From the time of the inception of the ZIP Code system until 1998, the postal zones of Queens and western Nassau County—whose secession from Queens County in 1899 did not affect postal routes—were organized based on which main post office routed the neighborhood's postal mail; the name of the main post office was the default name of the corresponding ZIP code. For example, Fresh Meadows postal mail was routed through the main post office in Flushing, Fresh Meadows' ZIP Codes 11365 and 11366 were both labeled as "Flushing". At the urging of the citizens of Queens and with the support of Congressman Gary Ackerman, ZIP Codes are named after the main post office they serve; the original zip codes themselves are still used by the USPS for mail delivery purposes.

Queens neighborhoods may have one of the following ZIP Code prefixes, which are classified under the following main post offices: 111 - Long Island City 113 - Flushing 114 - Jamaica 116 - Rockaway List of Bronx neighborhoods List of Brooklyn neighborhoods List of Manhattan neighborhoods List of Staten Island neighborhoods Community boards of Queens'NYC Neighborhoods Map' from New York City’s Department of City Planning Map of Queens neighborhoods

Tualatin Valley Highway

The Tualatin Valley Highway No. 29 is an Oregon highway which passes through the Tualatin Valley, between the cities of McMinnville and Beaverton. Between McMinnville and Forest Grove, the highway is signed as Oregon Route 47. Oregon 8 becomes Canyon Road in Beaverton east of Hocken Road; the highway is referred to as TV Highway by locals and is marked as such by signs. TriMet bus route 57-TV Hwy. provides public transit service over the full length of the section between Forest Grove and Beaverton. About 1918, a highway constructed of concrete was built between Hillsboro; the highway replaced a dirt road maintained by the county that ran on the southern side of the railroad tracks. This earlier road came from Portland along Farmington Road and veered north on what is now Kinnaman Road in Aloha until 209th Avenue in Reedville where it ran parallel to the rail tracks. Farther west at Witch Hazel the early road followed the modern Witch Hazel and River Roads into Hillsboro proper. Hillsboro decided in March 1919 to have the new road travel along Baseline Street, two blocks south of Main Street where the road was to run.

In March 1953, Washington County planners decided to have the highway widened to four lanes from Beaverton to Forest Grove. The city of Beaverton paid $5.8 million in urban renewal funds to build an overpass between Murray and 170th Avenue that removed a railroad crossing in 1983.

Partition problem

In number theory and computer science, the partition problem, or number partitioning, is the task of deciding whether a given multiset S of positive integers can be partitioned into two subsets S1 and S2 such that the sum of the numbers in S1 equals the sum of the numbers in S2. Although the partition problem is NP-complete, there is a pseudo-polynomial time dynamic programming solution, there are heuristics that solve the problem in many instances, either optimally or approximately. For this reason, it has been called "the easiest hard problem". There is an optimization version of the partition problem, to partition the multiset S into two subsets S1, S2 such that the difference between the sum of elements in S1 and the sum of elements in S2 is minimized; the optimization version can be solved efficiently in practice. Given S =, a valid solution to the partition problem is the two sets S1 = and S2 =. Both sets sum to 5, they partition S. Note that this solution is not unique. S1 = and S2 = is another solution.

Not every multiset of positive integers has a partition into two subsets with equal sum. An example of such a set is S =; the problem can be solved using dynamic programming when the size of the set and the size of the sum of the integers in the set are not too big to render the storage requirements infeasible. Suppose the input to the algorithm is a multiset S of cardinality N: S = Let K be the sum of all elements in S; that is: K = x1 +... + xN. We will build an algorithm that determines whether there is a subset of S that sums to ⌊ K / 2 ⌋. If there is a subset, then: if K is the rest of S sums to ⌊ K / 2 ⌋ if K is odd the rest of S sums to ⌈ K / 2 ⌉; this is as good a solution as possible. We wish to determine if there is a subset of S that sums to ⌊ K / 2 ⌋. Let: p be True if a subset of sums to i and False otherwise. P is True if and only if there is a subset of S that sums to ⌊ K / 2 ⌋; the goal of our algorithm will be to compute p. In aid of this, we have the following recurrence relation: p is True if either p is True or if p is True p is False otherwiseThe reasoning for this is as follows: there is some subset of S that sums to i using numbers x1... xjif and only if either of the following is true: There is a subset of that sums to i.

The algorithm consists of building up a table of size ⌊ K / 2 ⌋ by N containing the values of the recurrence. Remember that K is the sum of all N elements in S. Once the entire table is filled in, we return P. Below is a depiction of the table P. There is a blue arrow from one block to another if the value of the target-block might depend on the value of the source-block; this dependence is a property of the recurrence relation. Function find_partition is input: A list of integers S. output: True if S can be partitioned into two subsets that have equal sum. N ← |S| K ← sum P ← empty boolean table of size by initialize top row of P to True initialize leftmost column of P, except for P to False for i from 1 to ⌊ K / 2 ⌋ for j from 1 to n if >= 0 P ← P or P else P ← P return P Below is the table P for the example set used above S =: This algorithm runs in time O, where N is the number of elements in the input set and K is the sum of elements in the input set. The algorithm can be extended to the k-way multi-partitioning problem, but takes O memory where m is the largest number in the input, making it impractical for k = 3 unless the inputs are small numbers.

The partition problem can be viewed as a special case of the subset sum problem and the pseudo-polynomial time dynamic programming solution given above generalizes to a solution for the subset sum problem. Several heuristic algorithms exist to produce approximations to the partition optimization problem; these can be extended to linear-space exact algorithms. One approach to the problem, imitating the way children choose teams for a game, is the greedy algorithm, which iterates through the numbers in descending order, assigning each of them to whichever subset has the smaller sum; this approach ha

Phyllis Richman

Phyllis C. Richman is an American writer and former food critic for the Washington Post for 23 years, a role that led Newsweek magazine to name her "the most feared woman in Washington". Washingtonian magazine listed her as one of the 100 most powerful women in Washington. Richman is the author of three murder mysteries set in the restaurant world, many articles written for such publications as Gourmet, Bon Appétit, Food Arts, she has appeared on numerous radio and television shows, including the Diane Rehm Show, NPR's All Things Considered and Weekend Edition, the Oprah Winfrey Show. The second of four children, Richman was born to Abraham Chasanow, her father was a civil servant. After being fired from his US Navy job as a security risk, Chasanow brought suit, it led to the movie Three Brave Men and to a Pulitzer Prize-winning article in the Washington Daily News by Anthony Lewis. Helen Chasanow worked as a real-estate agent; when Richman was young, the family moved to the cooperative town of Greenbelt, where she grew up in a progressive environment.

Richman enrolled at Brandeis University, from which she graduated with honors in 1961. That same year, she intended to apply for graduate work at Harvard University, but received a letter from a professor in the Department of City and Regional Planning who doubted that she would be able to combine academic work with "responsibilities to husband and a possible future family". Instead, Richman did graduate work in urban planning at the University of Pennsylvania, in sociology at Purdue University. Following her junior year of college, she married Alvin Richman, who went on to teach political science at Purdue before specializing in public opinion polling for the United States Information Agency and the State Department, they had three children — Joe, the producer of Radio Diaries on NPR. She is now married to a retired statistician at the US Department of Education, they live in Maryland. In 2009, Richman was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, but continues to contribute freelance articles to various publications.

Richman began her career as a food critic at the Baltimore Jewish Times, where she worked for two years. In 1976 she was hired by the Washington Post and served as that newspaper's restaurant critic until her retirement in 2000, she was the first woman to hold that position. She served as the newspaper's Food Editor from 1980-1987, her nationally syndicated weekly column "Richman's Table" appeared from 1985 to 1989. Between 1973 and 1980 she wrote several other columns, including one on feeding children, "Try It", "Turning Tables", which appeared in the Washington Post Magazine from 1976 to 1980, in the Washington Post Weekend section from 1980-1990; as a restaurant critic, Richman "kept a low profile, was photographed, wore a silk scarf over the bottom of her face when she went out in public". Until her retirement, Richman served on the James Beard Restaurant Awards committee and on the International Association of Culinary Professionals Cookbook Awards executive committee, as well as on the editorial board of Gastronomica: The Journal of Food and Culture.

Richman turned to prose in the mid-1990s, publishing her first culinary murder mystery, The Butter Did It: A Gastronomic Tale of Love and Murder, in 1997. Publishers Weekly reviewed it: "Richman's prose is as smooth and easy to swallow as premium ice cream... She brings a welcome angle and authenticity to the expanding menu of culinary mysteries." Awards include the Productive Aging Award, Jewish Council for the Aging, 2010.

Mzoli's is a butchery in Gugulethu, a township on the outskirts of Cape Town, South Africa. Since Mzoli's opened in early 2003, the restaurant has become a popular gathering spot for Cape Town residents and a tourist attraction. Amongst Gugulethu's residents, Mzoli's Place has a reputation for public drunkenness and disrespect for the local community. Mzoli's is named after Mzoli Ngcawuzele; the establishment opened in early 2003. Owner Mzoli Ngcawuzele obtained start-up funding from the Development Bank of South Africa, which supports black-owned businesses. In October 2006, an economic study said that Mzoli had "moved, from selling meat informally from a garage, to owning one of the most popular hangouts in Cape Town". In November 2006, more than 30 restaurant patrons, including a group of tourists and Democratic Alliance councillor Masizole Mnqasela, were arrested in a police raid for drinking in public; the restaurant did not sell alcohol, but Ngcawuzele explained that he could not stop people from bringing their own.

The incident generated controversy in the local press. Tour operator Ryan Hunt claimed that police swore at the patrons and threatened people for asking questions. "The police created a dangerous situation. People are always encouraged to visit township attractions, but now they are turned away with that kind of situation," he said. Mnqasela, a member of Cape Town's economic development committee, added, "Mzoli's is internationally acclaimed and is key to township tourism. What kind of message is the police sending?" The African National Congress approved the police actions, citing a need to curtail public drunkenness. Located in the township of Gugulethu, a black neighbourhood 15 kilometres southeast of the centre of Cape Town, Mzoli's is a "do-it-yourself" market and eatery, selling meat to patrons who in turn hire independent entrepreneurs running braai stalls on the grounds to grill the meat and prepare meals. Mzoli's provides live entertainment and has become noted as a venue for deep house and kwaito music.

As well as local people, Mzoli's attracts television stars, DJs such as DJ Fresh, politicians such as Tony Yengeni, businesspeople and college students. Mzoli's is considered to be network. In September 2006, Sasha Planting of Financial Mail called it "the destination for everyone". In 2016, the Travel Channel show Secret Eats with Adam Richman featured a segment at Mzoli's during an episode filmed in Cape Town; some local residents near a long-planned shopping mall, being built by a business owned by Mzoli's owner criticized his plans in 2008. Some businesses were evicted or threatened with eviction from older buildings owned by Mzoli, which were knocked down to make room for the new property development. Other nearby residents have complained that the property developer has not hired enough local residents. Critics threatened to vandalize or burn both Mzoli's Place and Ngcawuzele's home if he did not meet their demands for jobs and permanent, guaranteed space for informal traders at the new shopping mall.
