Nikon Corporation known just as Nikon, is a Japanese multinational corporation headquartered in Tokyo, specializing in optics and imaging products. Nikon's products include cameras, camera lenses, microscopes, ophthalmic lenses, measurement instruments, rifle scopes, spotting scopes, the steppers used in the photolithography steps of semiconductor fabrication, of which it is the world's second largest manufacturer; the company is the eighth-largest chip equipment maker as reported in 2017. The companies held by Nikon form the Nikon Group. Among its products are Nikkor imaging lenses, the Nikon F-series of 35 mm film SLR cameras, the Nikon D-series of digital SLR cameras, the Coolpix series of compact digital cameras, the Nikonos series of underwater film cameras. Nikon's main competitors in camera and lens manufacturing include Canon, Fujifilm, Panasonic and Olympus. Founded on July 25, 1917 as Nippon Kōgaku Kōgyō Kabushikigaisha, the company was renamed to Nikon Corporation, after its cameras, in 1988.
Nikon is a member of the Mitsubishi group of companies. Nikon Corporation was established on 25 July 1917 when three leading optical manufacturers merged to form a comprehensive integrated optical company known as Nippon Kōgaku Tōkyō K. K. Over the next sixty years, this growing company became a manufacturer of optical lenses and equipment used in cameras, binoculars and inspection equipment. During World War II the company operated thirty factories with 2,000 employees, manufacturing binoculars, bomb sights, periscopes for the Japanese military. After the war Nippon Kōgaku reverted to producing its civilian product range in a single factory. In 1948, the first Nikon-branded camera was released, the Nikon I. Nikon lenses were popularised by the American photojournalist David Douglas Duncan. Duncan was working in Tokyo. Duncan had met Jun Miki, who introduced Duncan to Nikon lenses. From July 1950 to January 1951, Duncan covered the Korean War. Fitting Nikon optics to his Leica rangefinder cameras produced high contrast negatives with sharp resolution at the centre field.
Founded in 1917 as Nippon Kōgaku Kōgyō Kabushikigaisha, the company was renamed Nikon Corporation, after its cameras, in 1988. The name Nikon, which dates from 1946, sounds like a merging of Nippon Kōgaku and Zeiss's brand Ikon; this would cause some early problems in Germany as Zeiss complained that Nikon violated its trademarked camera. From 1963 to 1968 the Nikon F in particular was therefore labeled'Nikkor'; the Nikkor brand was introduced in 1932, a westernised rendering of an earlier version Nikkō, an abbreviation of the company's original full name. Nikkor is the Nikon brand name for its lenses. Another early brand used on microscopes was Joico, an abbreviation of "Japan Optical Industries Co". Expeed is the brand Nikon uses for its image processors since 2007; the Nikon SP and other 1950s and 1960s rangefinder cameras competed directly with models from Leica and Zeiss. However, the company ceased developing its rangefinder line to focus its efforts on the Nikon F single-lens reflex line of cameras, successful upon its introduction in 1959.
For nearly 30 years, Nikon's F-series SLRs were the most used small-format cameras among professional photographers, as well as by the U. S. space program. Nikon popularized many features in professional SLR photography, such as the modular camera system with interchangeable lenses, motor drives, data backs. However, as auto focus SLRs became available from Minolta and others in the mid-1980s, Nikon's line of manual-focus cameras began to seem out of date. Despite introducing one of the first autofocus models, the slow and bulky F3AF, the company's determination to maintain lens compatibility with its F-mount prevented rapid advances in autofocus technology. Canon introduced a new type of lens-camera interface with its electronic Canon EOS cameras and Canon EF lens mount in 1987; the much faster lens performance permitted by Canon's electronic focusing and aperture control prompted many professional photographers to switch to the Canon system through the 1990s. Nikon created some of the first digital SLRs for NASA, used in the Space Shuttle since 1991.
After a 1990s partnership with Kodak to produce digital SLR cameras based on existing Nikon film bodies, Nikon released the Nikon D1 SLR under its own name in 1999. Although it used an APS-C-size light sensor only 2/3 the size of a 35 mm film frame, the D1 was among the first digital cameras to have sufficient image quality and a low enough price for some professionals to use it as a replacement for a film SLR; the company has a Coolpix line which grew as consumer digital photography became prevalent through the early 2000s. Through the mid-2000s, Nikon's line of professional and enthusiast DSLRs and lenses including their back compatible AF-S lens line remained in second place behind Canon in SLR camera sales, Canon
A pumpkin is a cultivar of a squash plant, most of Cucurbita pepo, round, with smooth ribbed skin, most deep yellow to orange in coloration. The thick shell contains pulp; some exceptionally large cultivars of squash with similar appearance have been derived from Cucurbita maxima. Specific cultivars of winter squash derived from other species, including C. argyrosperma, C. moschata, are sometimes called "pumpkin". Native to North America, pumpkins are one of the oldest domesticated plants, having been used as early as 7,500 to 5,000 BC. Pumpkins are grown for commercial use and are used both for food and recreation. Pumpkin pie, for instance, is a traditional part of Thanksgiving meals in Canada and the United States, pumpkins are carved as jack-o'-lanterns for decoration around Halloween, although commercially canned pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie fillings are made from different kinds of winter squash than the ones used for jack-o'-lanterns; the word pumpkin originates from the word pepon, Greek for "large melon", something round and large.
The French adapted this word to pompon, which the British changed to pumpion and to the American colonists became known as pumpkin. The term pumpkin has no agreed upon botanical or scientific meaning, is used interchangeably with "squash" and "winter squash". In North America and the United Kingdom, pumpkin traditionally refers to only certain round, orange varieties of winter squash, predominantly derived from Cucurbita pepo, while in Australian English, pumpkin can refer to winter squash of any appearance. In New Zealand and Australian English, the term pumpkin refers to the broader category called winter squash elsewhere. Pumpkins, like other squash, originated in southern United States; the oldest evidence were pumpkin fragments dated between 7,000 and 5,500 BC found in Mexico. Pumpkin fruits are a type of botanical berry known as a pepo. Traditional C. pepo pumpkins weigh between 3 and 8 kilograms, though the largest cultivars reach weights of over 34 kg. The color of pumpkins derives from orange carotenoid pigments, including beta-cryptoxanthin and beta carotene, all of which are provitamin A compounds converted to vitamin A in the body.
All pumpkins are winter squash: mature fruit of certain species in the genus Cucurbita. Characteristics used to define "pumpkin" include smooth and ribbed skin, deep yellow to orange color. Circa 2005, white pumpkins had become popular in the United States. Other colors, including dark green exist. Pumpkins are grown all around the world for a variety of reasons ranging from agricultural purposes to commercial and ornamental sales. Of the seven continents, only Antarctica is unable to produce pumpkins; the traditional American pumpkin used for jack-o-lanterns is the Connecticut Field variety. As one of the most popular crops in the United States, in 2017 over 680,000,000 kilograms of pumpkins were produced; the top pumpkin-producing states include Illinois, Ohio and California. According to the Illinois Department of Agriculture, 95% of the U. S. crop intended for processing is grown in Illinois. Nestlé, operating under the brand name Libby's, produces 85% of the processed pumpkin in the United States, at their plant in Morton, Illinois.
In the fall of 2009, rain in Illinois devastated the Nestlé crop, resulting in a shortage affecting the entire country during the Thanksgiving holiday season. Pumpkins are a warm-weather crop, planted in early July; the specific conditions necessary for growing pumpkins require that soil temperatures 8 centimetres deep are at least 15.5 °C and soil that holds water well. Pumpkin crops may suffer if there is a lack of water or because of cold temperatures, sandy soil with poor water retention or poorly drained soils that become waterlogged after heavy rain. Pumpkins are, rather hardy, if many leaves and portions of the vine are removed or damaged, the plant can quickly re-grow secondary vines to replace what was removed. Pumpkins produce both female flower. Pumpkins have been pollinated by the native squash bee Peponapis pruinosa, but this bee has declined at least in part to pesticide sensitivity, today most commercial plantings are pollinated by honeybees. One hive per acre is recommended by the U.
S. Department of Agriculture. If there are inadequate bees for pollination, gardeners have to hand pollinate. Inadequately pollinated pumpkins start growing but abort before full development. "Giant pumpkins" are a large squash. The variety arose from the large squash of South America through the efforts of botanical societies and enthusiast farmers. In a 100-gram amount, raw pumpkin provides 110 kilojoules of food energy and is an excellent source of provitamin A beta-carotene and vitamin A. Vitamin C is present in moderate content. Pumpkin is 92% water, 6.5% carbohydrate, 0.1% fat and 1% protein. Pumpkins are versatile in their uses for co
Amityville, New York
Amityville is a village in the town of Babylon in Suffolk County, New York, in the United States. The population was 9,523 at the 2010 census. Huntington settlers first visited the Amityville area in 1653 due to its location to a source of salt hay for use as animal fodder. Chief Wyandanch granted the first deed to land in Amityville in 1658; the area was called Huntington West Neck South (it is on the Great South Bay and Suffolk County, New York border in the southwest corner of what once called Huntington South but is now the Town of Babylon. According to village lore, the name was changed in 1846 when residents were working to establish its new post office; the meeting turned into bedlam and one participant was to exclaim, "What this meeting needs is some amity". Another version says the name was first suggested by mill owner Samuel Ireland to name the town for his boat, the Amity; the place name is speaking an incidental name, marking an amicable agreement on the choice of a place name. The village was formally incorporated on March 3, 1894.
In the early 1900s, Amityville was a popular tourist destination with large hotels on the bay and large homes. Annie Oakley was said to be a frequent guest of vaudevillian Fred Stone. Will Rogers had a home across Clocks Boulevard from Stone. Gangster Al Capone had a house in the community. Amityville has been twinning with Le Bourget, France since 1979. Amityville is the setting of the book The Amityville Horror by Jay Anson, published in 1977 and had been adapted into a series of films made between 1979 and 2017; the story of The Amityville Horror can be traced back to a real life murder case in Amityville in November 1974, when Ronald DeFeo, Jr. shot all six members of his family at 112 Ocean Avenue. In December 1975 George and Kathy Lutz and Kathy's three children moved into the house, but left after twenty-eight days, claiming to have been terrorized by paranormal phenomena produced by the house. Jay Anson's novel has been the subject of much controversy; the house featured in the novel and its film versions still exists but has been renovated and the address changed in order to discourage tourists from visiting it.
The Dutch Colonial Revival architecture house built in 1927 was put on the market in May 2010 for $1.15 million and sold in September for $950,000. According to the United States Census Bureau, the village has a total area of 2.5 square miles, of which, 2.1 square miles of it is land and 0.4 square miles of it is water. The total area is 15.38% water. The Village of Amityville is bordered to the west by East Massapequa, to the north by North Amityville, to the east and south by Copiague, to the south by the Great South Bay; the Triangle - The fork of Broadway and Park Avenue, along with Ireland Place create a triangular plot of land at the center of the village. The Triangle building was built in the same year that Ireland Place opened. A gazebo was added to the north point of The Triangle prior to 1988. In 1994, The Triangle was designated “Memorial Triangle” in memory of all who have served the village; the Lauder Museum is located at the corner of Broadway and Ireland Place, just south of The Triangle.
The historic building was built for the Bank of Amityville in 1909. The Amityville Historical Society opened the Lauder Museum in 1972; the Mike James Courts at Bolden Mack Park The Amityville beach Sand Island - an island in the Great South Bay directly south of The Amityville Beach and only accessible by boat.

Long Island is a densely populated island off the East Coast of the United States, beginning at New York Harbor 0.35 miles from Manhattan Island and extending eastward into the Atlantic Ocean. The island comprises four counties in the U. S. state of New York. Kings and Queens Counties and Nassau County share the western third of the island, while Suffolk County occupies the eastern two-thirds. More than half of New York City's residents now live in Brooklyn and Queens. However, many people in the New York metropolitan area colloquially use the term Long Island to refer to Nassau and Suffolk Counties, which are suburban in character, conversely employing the term the City to mean Manhattan alone. Broadly speaking, "Long Island" may refer both to the main island and the surrounding outer barrier islands. North of the island is Long Island Sound, across which lie Westchester County, New York, the state of Connecticut. Across the Block Island Sound to the northeast is the state of Rhode Island. To the west, Long Island is separated from the island of Manhattan by the East River.
To the extreme southwest, it is separated from Staten Island and the state of New Jersey by Upper New York Bay, the Narrows, Lower New York Bay. To the east lie Block Island—which belongs to the State of Rhode Island—and numerous smaller islands. Both the longest and the largest island in the contiguous United States, Long Island extends 118 miles eastward from New York Harbor to Montauk Point, with a maximum north-to-south distance of 23 miles between Long Island Sound and the Atlantic coast. With a land area of 1,401 square miles, Long Island is the 11th-largest island in the United States and the 149th-largest island in the world—larger than the 1,214 square miles of the smallest U. S. state, Rhode Island. With a Census-estimated population of 7,869,820 in 2017, constituting nearly 40% of New York State's population, Long Island is the most populated island in any U. S. state or territory, the 18th-most populous island in the world. Its population density is 5,595.1 inhabitants per square mile.
If Long Island geographically constituted an independent metropolitan statistical area, it would rank fourth most populous in the United States. S. state, Long Island would rank 13th in population and first in population density. Long Island is culturally and ethnically diverse, featuring some of the wealthiest and most expensive neighborhoods in the Western Hemisphere near the shorelines as well as working-class areas in all four counties; as a hub of commercial aviation, Long Island contains two of the New York City metropolitan area's three busiest airports, JFK International Airport and LaGuardia Airport, in addition to Islip MacArthur Airport. Nine bridges and 13 tunnels connect Brooklyn and Queens to the three other boroughs of New York City. Ferries connect Suffolk County northward across Long Island Sound to the state of Connecticut; the Long Island Rail Road is the busiest commuter railroad in North America and operates 24/7. Nassau County high school students feature prominently as winners of the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair and similar STEM-based academic awards.
Biotechnology companies and scientific research play a significant role in Long Island's economy, including research facilities at Brookhaven National Laboratory, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Plum Island Animal Disease Center, State University of New York at Stony Brook, the New York University Tandon School of Engineering, the City University of New York, Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine. Prior to European contact, the Lenape people inhabited the western end of Long Island, spoke the Munsee dialect of Lenape, one of the Algonquian language family. Giovanni da Verrazzano was the first European to record an encounter with the Lenapes, after entering what is now New York Bay in 1524; the eastern portion of the island was inhabited by speakers of the Mohegan-Montauk-Narragansett language group of Algonquian languages. In 1609, the English navigator Henry Hudson explored the harbor and purportedly landed at Coney Island. Adriaen Block followed in 1615, is credited as the first European to determine that both Manhattan and Long Island are islands.
Native American land deeds recorded by the Dutch from 1636 state that the Indians referred to Long Island as Sewanhaka. Sewan was one of the terms for wampum, is translated as "loose" or "scattered", which may refer either to the wampum or to Long Island; the name "'t Lange Eylandt alias Matouwacs" appears in Dutch maps from the 1650s. The English referred to the land as "Nassau Island", after the Dutch Prince William of Nassau, Prince of Orange, it is unclear. Another indigenous name from colonial time, comes from the Native American name for Long Island and means "the island that pays tribute." The first settlements on Long Island were by settlers from England and its colonies in present-day New England. Lion Gardiner settled nearby Gardiners Island. T
Northern State Parkway
The Northern State Parkway is a 28.88-mile-long limited-access state parkway on Long Island in the U. S. state of New York. The western terminus is at the Queens–Nassau County line, where the parkway continues westward into New York City as the Grand Central Parkway; the eastern terminus is at New York State Route NY 454 in Hauppauge. The parkway is designated an unsigned reference route; as its name implies, the parkway services communities along the northern half of the island. In western Nassau County the parkway sports six lanes, three eastbound and three westbound, narrowing to four lanes total in central Nassau at the Wantagh Parkway and through its twelve miles or so in western Suffolk County, where it ends, it was constructed in stages throughout the 1930s and again post-World War II in the late 1940s/early 1950s until it reached its current terminus in Hauppauge in 1965. The Northern State Parkway is an eastern extension of the Grand Central Parkway, it was part of master planner Robert Moses' extensive road-building campaign and was built as a sister road to the Southern State Parkway.
In recent years its design has become dated due to an increase in commuter traffic using the roadway, numerous improvements have been made or are still on paper. Like its siblings in the State Parkway system on Long Island, the Hudson Valley, in New York City, commercial truck traffic is banned from the parkway due to low overpasses; the Long Island Expressway was built on by Moses to handle truck traffic traveling between New York City and Long Island's famed East End. The LIE runs directly alongside the Northern State in some parts of Nassau County; the Northern State Parkway begins at the Queens–Nassau county line in front of the Towers Country Club in Little Neck. After crossing the county line, the Northern State proceeds east through Lake Success as a six lane parkway, passing the northern end of the campus of Long Island Jewish Medical Center. A short distance east of the medical center, the parkway crosses under Lakeville Road and enters exit 25, which connects to Lakeville Road via Marcus Avenue.
The parkway proceeds northeast through Lake Success, entering exit 26 which serves New Hyde Park Road. At this junction, the parkway remains in close distance of the Long Island Expressway; the parkway winds northeast through North Hills, approaching the eastbound lanes of the Long Island Expressway, but entering exit 27, which connects to Shelter Rock Road. The Northern State and the Long Island Expressway begin paralleling each other in both directions, passing north of Searingtown. Just east of exit 36 on the expressway, the Northern State breaks away to the east for a short distance through Albertson, entering exit 28, which connects to Willis Avenue; the six-lane parkway continues eastward through Albertson, crossing under a railroad line and entering exit 29, which connects to Roslyn Road. The Northern State enters Old Westbury, passing a large set of baseball fields. Now paralleling Glen Cove Road, the Northern State proceeds south into exit 30, I. U. Willets Road. A short distance to the south, the parkway into Carle Place.
Through Carle Place, the Northern State enters exit 31, which connects to NY 25, crossing under NY 25B. Bending east, the parkway crosses over NY 25, entering exit 31A, which serves the northern terminus of the Meadowbrook State Parkway in Westbury. After the interchange, the parkway proceeds northeast, passing under Carle Road in Westbury, entering The Hedges section, where exit 32, serving Post Road, interchanges; the Northern State crosses through Birchwood Knolls and West Jericho as a six-lane parkway, where it enters exit 33, the northern terminus of the Wantagh State Parkway. After crossing under the southbound lane access ramp, the Northern State crosses under a flyover from the Wantagh northbound entering exit 34 in the town of Oyster Bay, which serves Brush Hollow Road. Continuing east through Jericho Gardens, the Northern State Parkway proceeds northeast as a four-lane roadway, passing north of Cantiauge Park as it enters West Birchwood. In West Birchwood, the Northern State bends northeast, beginning a new parallel with the Long Island Expressway.
Like at exit 27, approaching the expressway, the Northern State enters interchange 35, which serves the concurrency of NY 106 and NY 107. After the cloverleaf interchange, the parkway enters East Birchwood on a parallel of the Long Island Expressway, which connects to the Northern State via exit 42. Like the previous parallel, the Northern State forks east away from the expressway, crossing over a one-track railroad line through Birchwood. A short distance after, the parkway enters exit 36, a cloverleaf interchange with South Oyster Bay Road before entering Woodbury. In Woodbury, the Northern State Parkway continues east, crossing under Woodbury Road before entering a partial cloverleaf interchange with NY 135. After NY 135, the parkway bends northeast. A short distance after, the parkway enters another interchange with the Long Island Expressway and an interchange with Sunnyside Boulevard. Here, the route enters Trail View State Park before becoming a divided four-lane parkway through dense woods.
The parkway makes a gradual bend to the east southeast, crossing the county line into Suffolk County just west of exit 39. Now i
The ChyronHego Corporation Chyron Corporation, headquartered in Melville, New York, is a company that specializes in broadcast graphics creation and real-time data visualization for live television, news and sports production. ChyronHego’s graphics offerings include hosted services for graphics creation and order management, on-air graphics systems, channel branding, weather graphics, graphics asset management, clip servers, social media and second screen applications, touchscreen graphics, virtual graphics, player tracking; the company was founded in 1966 as Systems Resources Corporation. Early in its days it was renamed “Chiron,” named after the centaur Chiron in Greek mythology. In the 1970s the company played a pioneering role developing broadcast titling and graphics systems. Use of Chyron's graphics generators, by the major New York City–based US television networks, ABC, NBC, CBS, integrated text and graphics into news and sports coverage on broadcast television and on cable TV. Chyron as a corporation became successful by the early 1980s, capturing a 70 percent market share in its field.
In 1982 Chyron was the most profitable company on Long Island, in 1983 the company achieved a market capitalization of $112 million, high at the time for a small high-tech firm before the age of dot-com and the internet. The Chyron graphics generator technology was originated by Systems Resources Corporation, founded in 1966 by Dr. Francis Mechner and engineer Eugene Leonard as equal partners and sole directors and shareholders. Mechner had just sold his educational technology company Basic Systems, Inc. to Xerox Corporation, Leonard had sold Digitronics Corporation, of which he had been president. Mechner and Leonard had worked together during the late 1950s at Schering Corporation, creating a computerized data collection and analysis system for its behavioral psychopharmacology laboratory. Mechner provided the capital for Systems Resources Corporation's first five years of operation and Leonard provided his engineering expertise. Between 1966 and 1972 Systems Resources Corporation developed several innovative digital technology-based products, including a digital graphics generator for displaying letters on a television screen that it called “Chiron,” after the centaur named Chiron in Greek mythology.
The device controlled the edging of the displayed characters in a manner that took background variables into account. In 1972 the company hired Joseph L. Scheuer as its Vice President of Operations. From 1971 to 1978 Eugene Leonard was President of the company and he directed engineering. During this time the Chiron I, Chiron II and Chiron III character generator families were developed, with conceptual design laid out by Eugene Leonard himself. In 1975 Systems Resources Corporation merged with Computer Exchange, a used-computer brokerage owned by engineer Leon Weissman, who had worked for Leonard at Digitronics. Weissman’s company had cash but its business was in a slump; the merger provided Systems Resources Corporation with funding beyond Mechner’s contributions. The name of the merged company was soon changed to Chiron and it was located in Plainview, New York only a few miles from the company's present location in Melville. Leon Weissman placed emphasis on sales and field service starting the company on a decade of profitable operations.
Differences emerged between Leonard and Weissman with the former wanting to use more of the profits earned for engineering development of more sophisticated products. Weissman was more cautious about the early introduction of new products wanting to accumulate working capital and make some distributions to shareholders; these differences led to the departure of Eugene Leonard from the company in 1978. Joseph Scheuer became president and Leon Weissman became chairman and CEO. In 1983 Leon Weissman turned over his positions as chairman and CEO to Alfred O. P. Leubert; the company continued profitably for some years. Acquisitions were made in order to increase sales. Acquiring companies such as CMX Editing Systems and Aurora Systems did not prove to be profitable in the long run. In 1995 new owners took control of the company and appointed Michael I. Wellesley-Wesly as chairman and CEO. In the 1990s and 2000s Chyron Corporation continued being successful in its core business, but profitability and stock market success never returned to the glory days of the early 1980s.
In May 2013, Chyron Corporation merged with Sweden-based company Hego AB and its subsidiaries, a leading provider of graphics and data visualization solutions for TV and sports. The combined company was rebranded as ChyronHego and is headquartered in Melville, New York, with offices in Czech Republic, Finland, Mexico, Singapore, Slovak Republic and the United Kingdom. In 2015, the private equity firm Vector Capital bought ChyronHego for $120 million; the stock of the company, which traded on the NASDAQ Global Market under the symbol CHYR, was delisted. Systems Resources Corporation began manufacturing dot-matrix character generators for airport arrival and departure time displays, it began manufacturing a clean-looking fixed-font CG sold as the Chiron I. It featured the ability to record and retrieve lower thirds and full page text displays for news departments of TV stations as an alternative to art cards, slides or scrolling black felt; the company built its own multi-track magnetic storage device, the VidiLoop, based on a two-foot loop of computer tape in a thick clear plastic housing.
