New Jersey Route 44

Route 44 is a state highway located in Gloucester County in the U. S. state of New Jersey. It runs 10.28 mi from Barker Avenue in Bridgeport to a cul-de-sac at a ramp from southbound Interstate 295 and U. S. Route 130 in Thorofare; the route, a two-lane undivided road, passes through the communities of Gibbstown and Paulsboro in the northern part of the county, a short distance south of the Delaware River. Route 44 runs a short distance to the north of I-295/US 130 for much of its length. In 1923, Route 17S was legislated along the current route followed by Route 44 today, running between Penns Grove and Westville; the only portion of Route 17S built ran from Penns Grove to Salem. Route 44 was designated in 1927 to replace Route 17S between Penns Westville. By the 1940s, Route 44 was extended south to Salem and US 130 was designated concurrent with the route north of Penns Grove. Several spurs of Route 44 had existed or were planned prior to 1953, including Route S44, which ran concurrent with US 322 to the ferry between Bridgeport and Chester, Pennsylvania.

In 1953, Route 44 was replaced by Route 49 south of there. After two bypasses were built for US 130 around Carneys Point and between Bridgeport and Westville, Route 44 was redesignated along the former US 130. After I-295 was completed in the 1960s, US 130 returned to its original alignment in Carneys Point and replaced that portion of Route 44. Route 44 begins at an intersection with Barker Avenue and Main Street in Logan Township, heading to the east on Crown Point Road, a two-lane undivided road. Shortly after beginning, the route heads through wooded areas a short distance to the north of Conrail Shared Assets Operations' Penns Grove Secondary and intersects County Route 671; the road turns northeast and comes to an interchange with US 130 and continues parallel to the railroad line as it passes through more rural areas with some homes, coming to a junction with CR 684. Route 44 enters Greenwich Township upon crossing the marshy Repaupo Creek and becomes a local road called West Broad Street.

The route passes over the railroad tracks and continues east into residential and commercial areas of Gibbstown, intersecting CR 607/CR 673 and CR 680 within the town. At the intersection with CR 653, Route 44 enters Paulsboro and passes more developed areas, soon meeting CR 678; the route intersects CR 667 in the center of Paulsboro before crossing the Mantua Creek on a lift bridge and entering wetlands within West Deptford Township. Here, the road heads into a mix of rural lands and development, crossing CR 656 and the Little Mantua Creek. Route 44 intersects the Mid-Atlantic Parkway, which provides access to I-295 and US 130 a short distance to the south, before continuing into inhabited areas. Here, the road crosses the Conrail line and CR 643; the route becomes a four-lane road and has access ramps to and from southbound I-295/US 130 prior to coming to a crossroads with CR 640 in Thorofare. Past CR 640, the route parallels I-295/US 130 and crosses Woodbury Creek. Route 44 passes a mobile home park before coming to an end at cul-de-sac that has an access ramp to southbound Route 44 from southbound I-295/US 130.

What is now Route 44 was legislated as Route 17S in 1923, a route, to run from Penns Grove to Westville. By 1927, the only portion of Route 17S that had existed was a road that ran from Penns Grove south to Salem. In the 1927 New Jersey state highway renumbering that occurred that year, Route 44 was designated to run from Penns Grove to Westville, replacing what had been legislated as Route 17S. By the end of the 1930s, Route 44 was extended south from Penns Grove to Salem and US 130 was designated along with Route 44 north of Penns Grove by 1941. Prior to 1953, several spurs of Route 44 were planned. Route S44 was designated in 1939 as a connection from Route 44 in Bridgeport to the ferry across the Delaware River to Chester and was concurrent with US 322; the S44 designation was removed in 1953 to avoid the concurrency with US 322. In 1974, the Commodore Barry Bridge was built, bypassing the ferry, the old alignment of US 322 became Route 324. Route S44A was planned in 1938 as an eastern bypass of Camden from Route 45 in Brooklawn to Route 40 and Route 41 in Delaware Township along what is now CR 551.

The bypass was never built, although part of what would have been the bypass north of Haddonfield is now Route 41. Route 44T was planned in 1938 as an approach to a never-built tunnel under the Delaware River near Paulsboro; the route was to run from the tunnel east to the intersection of Route 41 and Route 47 in Deptford Township. In 1939, the planned route was extended east to Route 42 between Williamstown. In the 1953 New Jersey state highway renumbering, Route 44 was replaced by US 130 north of the Delaware Memorial Bridge approach in Deepwater and by Route 49 south of there. However, US 130 was moved to new freeway alignments around Carneys Point and between Bridgeport and Westville; the bypassed alignments of US 130 unnumbered became Route 44. After I-295 was built in the 1960s, it bypassed the portion of the US 130 freeway in Bridgeport and was designated along the US 130 freeway north to Westville and around Carneys Point. US 130 was moved back onto its old alignment in Carneys Point, replacing that portion of Route 44.

The entire route is in Gloucester County. U. S. Roads portal New Jersey portal New Jersey Highway Ends: Route 44 Speed Limits for Route 44

Kirya (album)

Kirya was Ofra Haza's 1992 follow-up to the internationally successful Shaday and Desert Wind. Building on her successful blend of European pop and traditional Middle Eastern sounds, the album was a logical next step for Haza. Musically, it applied the sensibilities of pop producer Don Was to traditional song writing and instrumentation. Along with producer Was, Haza was joined by other Western musicians, including a featured duet with Iggy Pop on "Daw Da Hiya", a song about a girl sentenced to death for becoming pregnant out of wedlock while the man responsible remains free. Music videos were made for two of the album's tracks, "Daw Da Hiya" and "Innocent" - "A Requiem for Refugees". In 1993, the album was nominated for a Grammy in the "Best World Music Album" category, an achievement which to this day has not been matched by any other Israeli singer. "Kirya" - 6:11 "Horashoot – The Bridge" - 3:46 "Innocent" – A Requiem for Refugees - 4:46 "Trains of No Return" - 4:15 "Mystery Faith and Love" - 5:24 "Daw Da Hiya" - 4:55 "Don't Forsake Me" - 4:35 "Barefoot" - 5:14 "Take 7/8" - 4:35 "Today I'll Pray" - 4:33 Ofra Haza – lead vocals Iggy Pop – vocals/narration Harry Hyman Vento – violin John Belezikjian – violin Tzur Ben-Zelev – acoustic bass David McMurray – saxophone Professor Ali Jihad Racy – percussion Rodrigo Manuel – percussion Ed Cherney – background vocals Mortonette Jenkins – background vocals Natalie Jackson – background vocals Marlena Jetter – background vocals Valerie Carter – background vocals Mark Goldenberg – background vocals, electric guitar, harmonium Don Was – record producer Ofra Haza – producer Bezalel Aloni – producer Recorded at Microplant, Devonshire, England.

Dietenhofen is a municipality in the district of Ansbach in Bavaria, Germany. This small village is located in the Franconian Heights about 28 km west of Nuremberg, 14 km north east of Ansbach and 38 km east of Rothenburg o.d. Tauber; the river Bibert flows through the valley community and gives its name to the Bibert walking and bicycle path. Apart from the main village, there are 27 subdivisions which belong to Dietenhofen; these are: It’s a good idea to start the history of Dietenhofen with the legend behind its name. Many years ago three noble maidens who had got lost in the area were saved by following the sound of a shepherd’s horn, they were so grateful that they had a chapel built where they met him, called the place Dudenhofen. This became “Dietenhofen”. One of the most important monuments in Dietenhofen is the St. Andreas Church, built about 1000 AD; the church tower was added in the year 1468. There are some interesting old graves in the church and the magnificent old baroque altar is worth seeing.

A few hundred metres away from the church you can find the local history museum which has played an important role in Dietenhofen’s history. It was surrounded by a moat, it was home to Rüdiger von Dietenhofen. In 1523 the building was destroyed by fire. In 1822 it was bought by the local government and used as the village school; the history would not be complete without mentioning the ruins in Leonrod. The original building was constructed in 1218 and was surrounded by a moat, it was home to the Baron of Leonrod and his family until it was accidentally burned down by their own servants in 1651. Dietenhofen is mentioned in History of the Lombards by Paul the Deacon in AD 785, who calls the place Villa Totonis. Dietenhofen enjoys a healthy economic situation and has as many jobs to offer, as it has inhabitants; the Dietenhofen firms Playmobil/Lechuza and Branofilter are global players. The current mayor, Heinz Henninger has been in power since 1984; the local council includes 20 voluntary members. Exchanges take place and lasting friendships have been established.

Dietenhofen has a renovated indoor swimming pool and a sports hall. There are some playing fields; the numerous clubs and music groups on offer make sure. Cultural events take place regularly

Robert Bruce McCoy

Robert Bruce McCoy was a general in the National Guard in the early 20th century. He is best known for having Fort McCoy, Wisconsin Camp McCoy, named after him. McCoy was born September 1867, in Kenosha, Wisconsin, to Bruce Elisha McCoy. Not long after his birth his family moved to the town of Lafayette, in Monroe County, where his father worked in the milling industry. In 1876, the mill property where his father worked was flooded and the family moved to Sparta in order to continue the milling business. While attending high school Robert McCoy was an athlete, distinguishing himself as a leader in school activities graduating from Sparta High School in 1887. After graduating from high school he entered the University of Wisconsin, made the varsity baseball team in his first year. In 1890 he left college to play semi-professional baseball at Ashland, Wisconsin returning to the University of Wisconsin as captain of the varsity baseball team. In 1891, he was admitted to the bar. A Democrat, in 1897, McCoy was elected Monroe County Court Judge.

In 1920, he was elected Mayor of Sparta. McCoy's career with the Wisconsin Army National Guard began in the mid-1890s and continued until his death, he served in the Spanish -- the Villa Expedition. At the start of World War I he was commander of the 4th Wisconsin Infantry Regiment, which he led in France as a colonel after it was federalized as the 128th Infantry. After World War I he was instrumental in organizing the 32nd Division Association and served as its founding president. On December 20, 1920, he was commissioned a brigadier general and assigned to command the 64th Infantry Brigade. In 1924 he was promoted to major general as commander of the 32nd Infantry Division. Among his awards for valor was the Distinguished Service Medal and the French Croix de Guerre. Following his Spanish–American War service McCoy decided to take the lead in creating a post near Sparta which would be suitable for training Artillery units, he began by buying small tracts and leasing them for grazing, with the proceeds going to finance additional land purchases.

One part of the McCoy's land purchases was known as the Sparta Maneuver Tract, with the portion of that tract north of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific Railroad tracks called Camp Upton, named for Emory Upton. Another, separate parcel of the land McCoy purchased was called Camp Robinson, named for William W. Robinson, a resident of Sparta who commanded the Iron Brigade in the American Civil War. McCoy died January 1926 from pernicious anemia. In November of that year the Army National Guard post he worked to create was renamed to Fort McCoy in his honor. Citation: The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, July 9, 1918, takes pleasure in presenting the Army Distinguished Service Medal to Colonel Robert B. McCoy, United States Army, for exceptionally meritorious and distinguished services to the Government of the United States, in a duty of great responsibility during World War I. In Command of the 128th Infantry throughout all the major operations in which the 32d Division participated, Colonel McCoy proved himself a leader of sound judgment and exceptional ability.

During the Oise-Aisne offensive he skillfully handled the delicate maneuver of straightening and changing the front on the left bank of his brigade during the attack on Terny-Sorny and during the Meuse-Argonne offensive. In the attack on the Kremhilde-Stellung he performed another tactical operation of high order in a flank movement which resulted in the taking of the town of Romagne. Robert Bruce McCoy

Lawrence Ang

Lawrence Ang Boon Kong is a Singaporean lawyer, Director of the Commercial Affairs Department from 1991 to 1999. He replaced Glenn Knight after the latter came under investigation by the Corrupt Practices Investigation Bureau, he stepped down in October 1999 when the CAD was merged with the Commercial Crimes Division of the Singapore Police Force. Before becoming CAD Director, Ang had assisted the Commission of Inquiry into the death of National Development Minister Teh Cheang Wan, who committed suicide in the midst of corruption investigations, he was the Deputy Public Prosecutor in the trial of Francis Seow. In Seow's trial, lawyer V. K. Dube complained that Ang had misconducted himself by making remarks which were "unwarranted and untrue." The Law Society fined Ang S$1,000 but he appealed to the High Court, which waived the fine after deciding that the Law Society had no jurisdiction to discipline Ang because he did not have a practising certificate though he was an advocate and solicitor.

On appeal to the Singapore Court of Appeal, the Court decided that because Ang was an advocate and solicitor, the jurisdiction of the Law Society did extend to him notwithstanding his lack of a practicing certificate: however, on the facts they did not uphold the fine. During his time as CAD Director, Ang headed the prosecution for cases such as that of former Member of Parliament Choo Wee Khiang and Barings Bank trader Nick Leeson. After stepping down, Ang continued to be Deputy Public Prosecutor in several cases. In 2001, he presented the prosecution's case against three men—Wan Kamil Mohamed Shafian, 34. In the 2005 trial of Took Leng How over the murder of Huang Na, he opened the case by outlining the prosecution's argument that Huang Na had been sexually assaulted, he subjected the defence's psychiatrist, R. Nagulendran, to a vigorous cross-examination over the latter's diagnosis that Took was schizophrenic
