1920 United States presidential election in Wyoming

The 1920 United States presidential election in Wyoming took place on November 2, 1920, as part of the 1920 United States presidential election. Wyoming voters chose three representatives, or electors, to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president. Wyoming was won by Republican Ohio Senator Warren G. Harding, running with governor of Massachusetts and the future 30th president of the United States Calvin Coolidge, with 64.15 percent of the popular vote, against the Democratic 46th and 48th Governor of Ohio James M. Cox, running with the future Governor of New York and 32nd President of the United States Franklin D. Roosevelt, with 31.86 percent of the popular vote. Like all of the Western United States, severe anger at President Woodrow Wilson's failure to maintain his promise to keep the United States out of World War I produced extreme hostility among the isolationist population of remote Wyoming. In addition, by the beginning of 1920 skyrocketing inflation and Wilson's focus upon his proposed League of Nations at the expense of domestic policy had helped make the incumbent president unpopular – besides which Wilson had major health problems that had left First Lady Edith running the nation.

Political unrest seen in the Palmer Raids and the "Red Scare" further added to the unpopularity of the Democratic Party, since this global political turmoil produced considerable fear of alien revolutionaries invading the country. Demand in the West for exclusion of Asian immigrants became stronger than it had been before. Another factor hurting the Democratic Party was the migration of many people from the traditionally Republican Upper Midwest into the state; because the West had been the chief presidential battleground since the "System of 1896" emerged following that election, Governor Cox traveled across the western states in August and September, but he did not visit Wyoming with its tiny population and poverty of electoral votes. No polls were taken in the state. Like every Mountain state, which had voted for Woodrow Wilson in 1916 – turned strongly against Cox, to lose the state by a two-to-one majority, after Charles Evans Hughes had lost the state by double digits in 1916. Harding carried every county in Wyoming with an absolute majority, passed sixty percent in all but three.

Socialist Eugene Debs was not on the ballot in Wyoming, but Labor candidate Parley Christensen managed double figures in Sheridan County. This would prove the last time Sweetwater County voted Republican until Richard Nixon's landslide 1972 victory

Keban Dam

The Keban Dam is a hydroelectric dam on the Euphrates, located in the Elazığ Province of Turkey. The dam was the first and uppermost of several large-scale dams to be built on the Euphrates by Turkey. Although the Keban Dam was not constructed as a part of the Southeastern Anatolia Project, it is now a integrated component of the project, which aims to stimulate economic development in Southeastern Turkey. Construction of the dam commenced in 1966 and was completed in 1974. Keban Dam Lake, the reservoir created by Keban Dam, has a surface area of 675 square kilometres and is reputedly the fourth-largest lake in Turkey after Lake Van, Lake Tuz, the reservoir created by the Atatürk Dam. Construction of the Keban Dam was first proposed in 1936 by the newly established Electric Affairs Survey Administration, but not started before 1966. Construction was carried out by the French-Italian consortium SCI-Impreglio and completed in 1974. Estimates of the total construction cost vary between US$85 million and US$300 million.

At that time, archaeological rescue missions had been carried out at important sites that were to be flooded. Flooding of the reservoir led to the displacement of 25,000 people. During the flooding of the Keban Reservoir, Turkey maintained the discharge of the Euphrates at 450 cubic metres per second, as agreed with the downstream countries of Syria and Iraq. However, as a result of the fact that Syria was at that time filling the reservoir of its newly constructed Tabqa Dam as well, in 1975 a dispute broke out between Syria and Iraq over the amount of water that flowed into Iraq; this dispute, exacerbated by drought which reduced the amount of available water further, was solved by mediation of Saudi Arabia. After the initial filling of the lake, geological weaknesses in the bedrock on which the dam was built necessitated a temporary lowering of the lake level in order to carry out extensive reinforcement works. Keban Dam was the world's eighteenth-tallest dam at completion, creating Turkey's largest man-made reservoir and third-largest lake until the filling of the reservoir of the Atatürk Dam.

The construction of the dam and its subsequent reservoir resulted in involuntary resettlement of 25,000 people. From 1968 to 1974, the Euphrates and Murat river valleys were the scene of intense archaeological survey and excavation in advance of flooding; the lake formed by the dam is narrow, hemmed in by deep rock valleys. No archaeological sites were found in the survey of these valleys; the Murat valley opens up in two places, it is here that archaeological settlement was concentrated. The Aşvan region, covering about 115 square kilometres, contained eleven archaeological sites, all small; the largest, Aşvan Kale, covered about 0.9 hectares in total. The other broadening of the valley, at the Altınova plain, was a well-defined area of thick and fertile alluvial soil. Archaeological survey located 36 sites, of which one, Norşuntepe, covered 8.2 hectares, being by far the largest site in the region. It was excavated by a German team led by Harald Hauptmann; the Altınova plain contained other large mounds, including Tepecik, Korucutepe, Değirmentepe and Körtepe.

The late Roman Karamagara Bridge, a notable example of an early pointed arch bridge, has been permanently submerged by the dam. The area of rescue excavations is well covered in the work by Fahri Dikkaya; the Keban Dam is a combined rockfill and concrete gravity hydroelectric dam operated by the State Hydraulic Works. The dam is 1,097 metres long and its crest is 207 metres above the level of the river-bed, its eight water turbines are capable of producing 1,330 MW. The storage capacity of Lake Keban is 30.6 cubic kilometres and the surface area of the lake is 675 square kilometres, although the lake has reached higher levels in the past. Due to Lake Keban's high elevation at 845 metres above sea-level and its location in an area with high precipitation, evaporation is low at 0.48 cubic kilometres per year compared to reservoirs in Syria or Iraq. Apart from the Euphrates Valley directly upstream of the dam, the lake has flooded parts of valleys of the Murat River and the Karasu, the two rivers from which the Euphrates emerges.

Although the dam was not intended for irrigation, 63,872 hectares of agricultural land was irrigated from Lake Keban in 1999. Ağın Bridge, aka Ağın Bridge named in remembrance of the non-existent ancient Karamağara Bridge, was Turkey's fourth longest bridge when it was built in 2015.

Angered

Angered is a suburb in Gothenburg Municipality, Sweden. Angered is the biggest Million Programme area in Gothenburg, one of the biggest in the country with 60,000 inhabitants; the hilly terrain forced the planners to build the different parts of Angered at some distance from each other. Angered is a multicultural community with a high immigrant population. During the 2014 election, gangs of men threatened the locals from voting at polling stations. In its December 2015 report, Police in Sweden placed the district in the most severe category of urban areas with high crime rates. In 2017 a camel centre was in the planning stages with funds from the Gothenburg Municipality. Posters for the project claim that camel milk help avert autism and diabetes, claims which are illegal according to the Medical Products Agency. In 2017 the postal services were forced to change their routines in the area due to threats and serious attacks on their staff. In 2017, Angered is the district of Gothenburg with the least educated population aged 25–64, about 12-13% of the population has a post-secondary education of three years or more.

About 30% of pupils have not completed primary education and so are not eligible to attend secondary school. About half the population is unemployed. Inhabitants in Angered have low levels of trust, about half state they do not have trust in other people. Inhabitants in the area are unwilling to take part in judicial processes and social services, public officials and businesses have difficulties performing their functions in the area. Criminal gangs sell narcotics in schools and gang related violence occur in public spaces and is directed towards non gang members as well as rival gangs. In April 2018, security cameras were installed at the secondary school Angeredsgymnasiet. In July 2018 the camera surveillance in the area was intensified as police had problems getting terrified witnesses to testify in court trials; the intensification comprised Gothenburg Biskopsgården and Bergsjön. The pop singer and actress Laleh Pourkarim grew up in Angered; the indie singer-songwriter Jens Lekman is from Angered.

The Swedish metal band Dead by April is from Angered. The following sports clubs are located in Angered: Göteborg Hockey Club SDHL Gunnilse IS Lärje-Angereds IF Rannebergens IFThe Swedish triple-jumper Christian Olsson was born in northern Angered. Angered is served by a number of tram lines; the tram service terminates here, with the turning slope running around the bus terminal. The tram lines serving Angered are 4, 8 and 9; the tram line was due to run past Angered Centrum, terminating at Rannebergen, not far from the centre. This project was abandoned while under construction, bus line 76 runs from Angered Centrum to Rannebergen instead. However, there is space for trams inside the hill, just as at Hammarkullen; the next station southwards is Storås. Gothenburg quadricentennial jubilee
