Mount Clemens, Michigan
Mount Clemens is a city in the U. S. state of Michigan. The population was 16,314 at the 2010 census, it is the county seat of Macomb County. Mount Clemens was first surveyed in 1795 after the American Revolutionary War by Christian Clemens, who settled there four years later. Clemens and his friend, John Brooks, built a distillery, which attracted workers and customers, helping to settle the area. Brooks and Clemens platted the land, the town was named after Clemens in 1818, it received a post office with John Stockton as the first postmaster. Christian Clemens is buried at Clemens Park, located just north of downtown; the settlement filed for incorporation as a village in 1837, but this was not acted upon by the legislature until 1851. It was incorporated as a city in 1879, it became the seat of Macomb County on March 11, 1818. The Mount Clemens Public Library opened in 1865. Mount Clemens' largest industry for more than 100 years, from 1873 to 1974, was tourism related to the mineral baths, drawn from springs that were scattered throughout the city.
Such mineral baths were popular and were tourist destinations. At the peak of the industry, the city had several hotels related to this trade; the first bathhouse was built in 1873 and was known as "The Original". The bathhouse burned in 1883 but it was rebuilt larger the following year to accommodate the crowds of customers. Over the years, noted visitors such as film actors Clark Gable and Mae West, athletes Babe Ruth and Jack Dempsey, news magnate William Randolph Hearst, the wealthy Vanderbilt family vacationed in the city to take advantage of the mineral springs baths; the only remaining bathhouse building from this era is Bath House. It has been renamed as Select Specialty Hospital and is owned by Select Medical Corporation; this last bath house is in danger of being demolished, but the Friends of Historic Preservation are working with the city to preserve it. The Olympia Salon & Spa, located in the Martha Washington Sanitarium on Cass Ave, is again offering mineral baths. Throughout the late 20th century, the suburban expansion of Metropolitan Detroit and its exurbs affected the city of Mt. Clemens as well as its surrounding townships.
The Anton Art Center is a community gallery offering exhibitions of artwork by local and international artists. It is housed in a building, financed by industrialist and philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie in 1904; the Mock Turtle Press as well as American Road Magazine are published in Mount Clemens. In recent years "The Clem", as it is familiarly nicknamed, has become a center of nightlife for Macomb County, its bars include the Emerald Theatre. Others are Johnny G's, Madisons Pub, Orleans Billiards, Montes Martini Lounge, RecBowl, Your Mother's, Little Lorraines, Three Blind Mice, Fast Eddie's. Rap/rock artist Kid Rock, who hails from nearby Romeo, began his professional stage career as a DJ/rapper in Mt. Clemens, he earned his nickname here from club patrons saying "look at that white kid rock". According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 4.20 square miles, of which 4.07 square miles is land and 0.13 square miles is water. The Clinton River runs through the city; the city is completely surrounded by Clinton Township, except for the far east side which borders Harrison Township.

An electromagnetic pulse sometimes called a transient electromagnetic disturbance, is a short burst of electromagnetic energy. Such a pulse's origination may be a natural occurrence or man-made and can occur as a radiated, electric, or magnetic field or a conducted electric current, depending on the source. EMP interference is disruptive or damaging to electronic equipment, at higher energy levels a powerful EMP event such as a lightning strike can damage physical objects such as buildings and aircraft structures; the management of EMP effects is an important branch of electromagnetic compatibility engineering. Weapons have been developed to deliver the damaging effects of high-energy EMP. An electromagnetic pulse is a short burst of electromagnetic energy, its short duration means. Pulses are characterized by: The type of energy; the range or spectrum of frequencies present. Pulse waveform: shape and amplitude; the last two of these, the frequency spectrum and the pulse waveform, are interrelated via the Fourier transform and may be seen as two different ways of describing the same pulse.
EMP energy may be transferred in any of four forms: Electric field Magnetic field Electromagnetic radiation Electrical conductionDue to Maxwell's equations, a pulse of any one form of electromagnetic energy will always be accompanied by the other forms, however in a typical pulse one form will dominate. In general, only radiation acts with the others acting over short distances. There are a few exceptions, such as a solar magnetic flare. A pulse of electromagnetic energy comprises many frequencies from DC to some upper limit depending on the source; the range defined as EMP, sometimes referred to as "DC to daylight", excludes the highest frequencies comprising the optical and ionizing ranges. Some types of EMP events can leave an optical trail, such as lightning and sparks, but these are side effects of the current flow through the air and are not part of the EMP itself; the waveform of a pulse describes. Real pulses tend to be quite complicated, so simplified models are used; such a model is described either in a diagram or as a mathematical equation.
Most electromagnetic pulses have a sharp leading edge, building up to their maximum level. The classic model is a double-exponential curve which climbs steeply reaches a peak and decays more slowly. However, pulses from a controlled switching circuit approximate the form of a rectangular or "square" pulse. EMP events induce a corresponding signal in the surrounding environment or material. Coupling occurs most over a narrow frequency band, leading to a characteristic damped sine wave. Visually it is shown as a high frequency sine wave growing and decaying within the longer-lived envelope of the double-exponential curve. A damped sinewave has much lower energy and a narrower frequency spread than the original pulse, due to the transfer characteristic of the coupling mode. In practice, EMP test equipment injects these damped sinewaves directly rather than attempting to recreate the high-energy threat pulses. In a pulse train, such as from a digital clock circuit, the waveform is repeated at regular intervals.
A single complete pulse cycle is sufficient to characterise such a repetitive train. An EMP arises; the energy is broadband by nature, although it excites a narrow-band damped sine wave response in the surrounding environment. Some types are generated as regular pulse trains. Different types of EMP arise from natural, man-made, weapons effects. Types of natural EMP event includes: Lightning electromagnetic pulse; the discharge is an initial huge current flow, at least mega-amps, followed by a train of pulses of decreasing energy. Electrostatic discharge, as a result of two charged objects coming into close proximity or contact. Meteoric EMP; the discharge of electromagnetic energy resulting from either the impact of a meteoroid with a spacecraft or the explosive breakup of a meteoroid passing through the Earth's atmosphere. Coronal mass ejection. A burst of plasma and accompanying magnetic field, ejected from the solar corona and released into the solar wind. Sometimes referred to as a Solar EMP. Types of man-made EMP event include: Switching action of electrical circuitry, whether isolated or repetitive.
Electric motors can create a train of pulses as the internal electrical contacts make and break connections as the armature rotates. Gasoline engine ignition systems can create a train of pulses as the spark plugs are energized or fired. Continual switching actions of digital electronic circuitry. Power line surges; these can be up to several kilovolts, enough to damage electronic equipment, insufficiently protected. Types of military EMP include: Nuclear electromagnetic pulse, as a result of a nuclear explosion. A variant of this is the high altitude nuclear EMP, which produces a secondary pulse due to particle interactions with the Earth's atmosphere and magnetic field. Non-nuclear electromagnetic pulse weapons. Lightning is unusual in that it has a preliminary "leader" discharge of low energy building up to the main pulse, which in turn may be followed at intervals by several smaller bursts. ESD events are characterised by high voltages of many kV but small currents and sometimes cause visible sparks.
ESD is treated as a small, locali

The Great Recession was a period of general economic decline observed in world markets during the late 2000s and early 2010s. The scale and timing of the recession varied from country to country; the International Monetary Fund concluded that the overall impact was the most severe since the Great Depression of the 1930s. The Great Recession stemmed from the collapse of the United States real-estate market in relation to the global financial crisis of 2007 to 2008 and the U. S. subprime mortgage crisis of 2007 to 2009. According to the nonprofit National Bureau of Economic Research, the recession in the U. S. ended in June 2009, thus extending over 19 months. The Great Recession resulted in a scarcity of valuable assets in the market economy and the collapse of the financial sector in the world economy. S. federal government. The recession was not felt around the world. Two senses of the word "recession" exist: one sense referring broadly to "a period of reduced economic activity" and ongoing hardship.
Under the academic definition, the recession ended in the United States in June or July 2009. Robert Kuttner argues, “’The Great Recession,’ is a misnomer. We should stop using it. Recessions are mild dips in the business cycle that are either self-correcting or soon cured by modest fiscal or monetary stimulus; because of the continuing deflationary trap, it would be more accurate to call this decade's stagnant economy The Lesser Depression or The Great Deflation." The Great Recession met the IMF criteria for being a global recession only in the single calendar year 2009. That IMF definition requires a decline in annual real world GDP per‑capita. Despite the fact that quarterly data are being used as recession definition criteria by all G20 members, representing 85% of the world GDP, the International Monetary Fund has decided—in the absence of a complete data set—not to declare/measure global recessions according to quarterly GDP data; the seasonally adjusted PPP‑weighted real GDP for the G20‑zone, however, is a good indicator for the world GDP, it was measured to have suffered a direct quarter on quarter decline during the three quarters from Q3‑2008 until Q1‑2009, which more mark when the recession took place at the global level.
According to the U. S. National Bureau of Economic Research the recession began in December 2007 and ended in June 2009, thus extended over eighteen months; the years leading up to the crisis were characterized by an exorbitant rise in asset prices and associated boom in economic demand. Further, the U. S. shadow banking system had grown to rival the depository system yet was not subject to the same regulatory oversight, making it vulnerable to a bank run. US mortgage-backed securities, which had risks that were hard to assess, were marketed around the world, as they offered higher yields than U. S. government bonds. Many of these securities were backed by subprime mortgages, which collapsed in value when the U. S. housing bubble burst during 2006 and homeowners began to default on their mortgage payments in large numbers starting in 2007. The emergence of sub-prime loan losses in 2007 began the crisis and exposed other risky loans and over-inflated asset prices. With loan losses mounting and the fall of Lehman Brothers on September 15, 2008, a major panic broke out on the inter-bank loan market.
There was the equivalent of a bank run on the shadow banking system, resulting in many large and well established investment and commercial banks in the United States and Europe suffering huge losses and facing bankruptcy, resulting in massive public financial assistance. The global recession that followed resulted in a sharp drop in international trade, rising unemployment and slumping commodity prices. Several economists predicted that recovery might not appear until 2011 and that the recession would be the worst since the Great Depression of the 1930s. Economist Paul Krugman once commented on this as the beginning of "a second Great Depression". Governments and central banks responded with fiscal and monetary policies to stimulate national economies and reduce financial system risks; the recession has renewed interest in Keynesian economic ideas on how to combat recessionary conditions. Economists advise that the stimulus should be withdrawn as soon as the economies recover enough to "chart a path to sustainable growth".
The distribution of household incomes in the United States has become more unequal during the post-2008 economic recovery. Income inequality in the United States has grown from 2005 to 2012 in more than 2 out of 3 metropolitan areas. Median household wealth fell 35% in the US, from $106,591 to $68,839 between 2005 and 2011; the majority report provided by U. S. Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission, composed of six Democratic and four Republican appointees, reported its findings in January 2011, it concluded that "the crisis was avoidable and was caused by: Widespread failures in financial regulation, including the Federal Reserve's failure to stem the tide of toxic mortgages.
Cannes Film Festival
The Cannes Festival, until 2002 called the International Film Festival and known in English as the Cannes Film Festival, is an annual film festival held in Cannes, which previews new films of all genres, including documentaries from all around the world. Founded in 1946, the invitation-only festival is held annually at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès, it is one of the "Big Three" alongside the Venice Film Festival and Berlin International Film Festival. On 1 July 2014, co-founder and former head of French pay-TV operator Canal+, Pierre Lescure, took over as President of the Festival, while Thierry Fremaux became the General Delegate; the board of directors appointed Gilles Jacob as Honorary President of the Festival. The 2018 Cannes Film Festival took place between 8 and 19 May 2018; the jury president was Australian actress Cate Blanchett, Shoplifters, directed by Hirokazu Kore-eda, won the Palme d'Or. The Cannes Film Festival has its origins in 1932 when Jean Zay, the French Minister of National Education, on the proposal of historian Philippe Erlanger and with the support of the British and Americans, set up an international cinematographic festival.
Its origins may be attributed in part to the French desire to compete with the Venice Film Festival, which at the time was shocking the democratic world by its fascist bias. The first festival was planned for 1939, Cannes was selected as the location for it, but the funding and organization were too slow and the beginning of World War II put an end to this plan. On 20 September 1946, twenty-one countries presented their films at the First Cannes International Film Festival, which took place at the former Casino of Cannes. In 1947, amid serious problems of efficiency, the festival was held as the "Festival du film de Cannes", where films from sixteen countries were presented; the festival was not held in 1950 on account of budgetary problems. In 1949, the Palais des Festivals was expressly constructed for the occasion on the seafront promenade of La Croisette, although its inaugural roof, while still unfinished, blew off during a storm. In 1951, the festival was moved to spring to avoid a direct competition with the Venice Festival, held in autumn.
During the early 1950s, the festival attracted a lot of tourism and press attention, with showbiz scandals and high-profile personalities' love affairs. At the same time, the artistic aspect of the festival started developing; because of controversies over the selection of films, the Critics' Prize was created for the recognition of original films and daring filmmakers. In 1954, the Special Jury Prize was awarded for the first time. In 1955, the Palme d'Or was created, replacing the Grand Prix du Festival, given until that year. In 1957, Dolores del Río was the first female member of the jury for the official selection. In 1959, the Marché du Film was founded, giving the festival a commercial character and facilitating exchanges between sellers and buyers in the film industry. Today it has become the first international platform for film commerce. Still, in the 1950s, some outstanding films, like Night and Fog in 1956 and Hiroshima, My Love in 1959 were excluded from the competition for diplomatic concerns.
Jean Cocteau, three times president of the jury in those years, is quoted to have said: "The Cannes Festival should be a no man's land in which politics has no place. It should be a simple meeting between friends."In 1962, the International Critics' Week was born, created by the French Union of Film Critics as the first parallel section of the Cannes Film Festival. Its goal was to showcase first and second works by directors from all over the world, not succumbing to commercial tendencies. In 1965 Olivia de Havilland was named the first female president of the jury, while the next year Sofia Loren became president; the 1968 festival was halted on 19 May. Some directors, such as Carlos Saura and Miloš Forman, had withdrawn their films from the competition. On 18 May filmmaker Louis Malle along with a group of directors took over the large room of the Palais and interrupted the projections in solidarity with students and labour on strike throughout France, in protest to the eviction of the President of the Cinémathèque Française.
The filmmakers achieved the reinstatement of the President, they founded the Film Directors' Society that same year. In 1969 the SRF, led by Pierre-Henri Deleau created the Directors' Fortnight, a new non-competitive section that programs a selection of films from around the world, distinguished by the independent judgment displayed in the choice of films. During the 1970s, important changes occurred in the Festival. In 1972, Robert Favre Le Bret was named the new President, Maurice Bessy the General Delegate, he introduced important changes in the selection of the participating films, welcoming new techniques, relieving the selection from diplomatic pressures, with films like MASH, Chronicle of the Years of Fire marking this turn. In some cases, these changes helped directors like Tarkovski overcome problems of censorship in their own country; until that time, the different countries chose the films that would represent them in the festival. Yet, in 1972, Bessy created a committee to select French films, another for foreign films.
In 1978, Gilles Jacob assumed the position of General Delegate, introducing the Caméra d'Or award, for the best first film of any of the main events, the Un Certain Regard section, for the non-competitive categories. Other changes were the decrease of length of the festival down to thirteen days, thus reducing the number of selected films.
