A phenomenon is "an observable fact or event". The term came into its modern philosophical usage through Immanuel Kant, who contrasted it with the noumenon. In contrast to a phenomenon, a noumenon cannot be directly observed. Kant was influenced by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz in this part of his philosophy, in which phenomenon and noumenon serve as interrelated technical terms. Far predating this, the ancient Greek Pyrrhonist philosopher Sextus Empiricus used phenomenon and noumenon as interrelated technical terms. In modern philosophical use, the term phenomena has come to mean'what is experienced is the basis of reality'. In Immanuel Kant's inaugural dissertation, On the Form and Principles of the Sensible and Intelligible World, Kant theorizes that the human mind is restricted to the logical world and thus can only interpret and understand occurrences according to their physical appearances, he wrote that humans could infer only as much as their senses allowed, but not experience the actual object itself.

Thus, the term phenomenon refers to any incident deserving of inquiry and investigation events that are unusual or of distinctive importance. In scientific usage, a phenomenon is any event, observable, including the use of instrumentation to observe, record, or compile data. In physics, the study of a phenomenon may be described as measurements related to matter, energy, or time, such as Isaac Newton's observations of the moon's orbit and of gravity, or Galileo Galilei's observations of the motion of a pendulum. In natural sciences, a phenomenon is event; this term is used without considering the causes of a particular event. Example of a physical phenomenon is an observable phenomenon of the lunar orbit or the phenomenon of oscillations of a pendulum. A mechanical phenomenon is a physical phenomenon associated with the equilibrium or motion of objects; some examples are Newton's cradle and double pendulums. Group phenomena concern the behavior of a particular group of individual entities organisms and most people.

The behavior of individuals changes in a group setting in various ways, a group may have its own behaviors not possible for an individual because of the herd mentality. Social phenomena apply to organisms and people in that subjective states are implicit in the term. Attitudes and events particular to a group may have effects beyond the group, either be adapted by the larger society, or seen as aberrant, being punished or shunned. In popular usage, a phenomenon refers to an extraordinary event; the term is most used to refer to occurrences that at first defy explanation or baffle the observer. According to the Dictionary of Visual Discourse, "In ordinary language'phenomenon/phenomena' refer to any occurrence worthy of note and investigation an untoward or unusual event, person or fact, of special significance or otherwise notable."

Champlain River

The Champlain River is 66.7 km long flowing on the north shore of St. Lawrence river; this river flows between Saint-Maurice River and the Batiscan River watershed, in Les Chenaux Regional County Municipality, in administrative region of Mauricie, in the province of Quebec, Canada. Champlain River is flowing at the boundary between the manors of Batiscan and Champlain. Champlain river flows from north to south to empty in the St. Lawrence river at Champlain village. Champlain River rises at an altitude of about 130 meters in wetlands located at the foot of the moraine of Saint-Narcisse, its watershed through the municipalities of Notre-Dame-du-Mont-Carmel, Trois-Rivières, Saint-Maurice, Saint-Narcisse, Saint-Luc-de-Vincennes, Sainte-Geneviève-de-Batiscan and Champlain, all located, with the exception of Trois-Rivières, in the Les Chenaux Regional County Municipality. Champlain river divides into four distinct branches, it is characterized by the presence of several meanders, a number of which are abandoned along the river near its mouth.

The geographical coordinates of the mouth of the river are: -72.28194 West, 46.44695 North. The watershed of the river Champlain is divided into five sub-basins, sub-basins upstream of the four branches of the main section, from west to east, the sub-basins of rivers Champlain of burned with bacon and fork, the sub-basin of the downstream portion of the Champlain River which flows in the four branches; the slope varies from 5.0 m/km in the sub-basin of the "rivière Brulée" to 0.7 m/km in the sub-basin of the river downstream of the Champlain portion. The banks of the Champlain River are composed of marine clays, a variety, unstable compared to other types of clay, favoring landslides when water accumulates in the clay soil. History of landslides in Saint-Luc-de-Vincennes]: 1823 - Laying of clay in Leda. 1878 - Laying of clay in Leda. 1895 - Laying of clay at Leda. 1981 - Casting of clay in Leda. 1986 - Laying of clay in Leda, taking part of the road and vacant land. November 2016A major landslide occurred on the night of November 9 to 10, 2016, on a lot of land belonging to Luc Normandin, in the Saint-Joseph-Ouest range, within the limits of Saint-Luc-de-Vincennes.

The field started to move around 9.30 pm on November 9. The slip site is one kilometer from the 1986 slip site, twice as large as the one in 2016; the slip stopped at about ten meters from the house of Luc Normandin and its barn sheltering about sixty cattle. This natural disaster generated a large crater of the size of a baseball field, about 160 meters wide and a depth of between 2 and 10 meters, between farm buildings and the edge of the Champlain River. Thousands of tons of clay and earth slipped into the river bed blocking the flow of water over several tens of meters; the water has risen to make its way again. Two houses were evacuated and a 200-meter security perimeter was established around the crater. Samuel de Champlain gave its name to this river, it is reported for the first time on the map in 1613 by Samuel de Champlain, shifted back to his card in 1632. This name, was given to the lordship, the catholic parish, the provincial county, the municipality and the Federal county; the toponym "Champlain River" was officialized in the registry of places name at the Commission de toponymie du Québec as of December 5, 1968.

In 1863, Stanislas Drapeau Champlain wrote that "Champlain river has enough water power in order to activate flour mills and saws, the large tannery of Mr. Richardson, living in Quebec". About 1800, Mathew Bell built a mill having 32 saws. Burned in 1850, it was replaced by a saw mill counting 20 saws and a tannery belonging to L. Osborne Richardson; the tannery was moved to the Eastern Townships in 1875.

The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. Most of the district was laid out on land that belonged to Hartford's prominent Goodwin family, a number of whom built houses on large lots near the Park River, in some cases designed by architects who were members of the extended family. In the early decades of the 20th century, the area attracted a number of Hartford's elites to build houses in the same area. There are 87 examples of Georgian Revival architecture and 55 examples of Tudor Revival architecture in the district.

A few homes are designed in the French Norman Chateau style, the Craftsman and Prairie Style are each represented by a single building.
