Roseanne

Roseanne is an American sitcom television series starring Roseanne Barr and revolving around the fictional Conner family. It aired on ABC from October 18, 1988, to May 20, 1997, again from March 27, 2018, to May 22, 2018. Lauded for its realistic portrayal of a working-class American family, the series reached No. 1 in the Nielsen ratings from 1989 to 1990. During the initial run, the series remained in the top four for six of the nine seasons, in the top 20 for eight. During the short-lived revival, the series reached No. 3, with an average of 18 million viewers per episode within the span of its nine episodes. In 1993, the episode "A Stash from the Past" was ranked No. 21 on TV Guide's 100 Greatest Episodes of All-Time. In 2002, Roseanne was ranked No. 35 on TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time. In 2013, it was ranked No. 32 on TV Guide's 60 Best Series of All Time. On May 16, 2017, ABC announced it had greenlit a revived, 10th season of Roseanne as a mid-season replacement in 2018, with the original cast returning.

In November 2017, ABC requested an additional episode. It premiered on March 27, 2018, to an initial audience of 18.44 million, which grew to 27.26 million total viewers following 7 days of delayed viewing. On March 30, 2018, following the success of its premiere, Roseanne was renewed for an 11th season of 13 episodes. ABC reversed its renewal decision and canceled Roseanne on May 29, 2018, after Barr likened former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett to Planet of the Apes, in a comment on Twitter, described by the network's president as being "abhorrent and inconsistent with our values." On June 21, 2018, ABC announced plans to re-tool the show as a spin-off involving the Conner family without Roseanne Barr, entitled The Conners. The new program premiered in October 2018. In coming up with ideas for new shows, Marcy Carsey and Tom Werner of Carsey-Werner Productions decided to look into the concept of the working mother as a central voice. Up until that point, there had been countless shows with working mothers, but few treated them as anything other than an adjunct to the father in the family.

Werner had suggested. This was because he saw the unique "in your face" voice that they were looking for and he contacted her agent and offered her the role. Barr's act at the time was the persona of the "domestic goddess", but as Carsey and Werner explains, she had the distinctive voice and attitude for the character and she was able to transform herself into the working class heroine they envisioned. Many early scripts were written by women: Grace McKeaney, Lauren Eve Anderson, Laurie Gelman, directed by Ellen Gittelsohn; the series is centered on the Conners, an American working-class family struggling to get by on a limited household income in their home at 714 Delaware Street in the drab fictional mid-state exurb of Lanford, Illinois. Although nominally located in Fulton County, several hours away from Chicago on-air references over the years suggested the town is in the vicinity of Aurora, DeKalb, all of which are much closer to Chicago. In a 2018 interview, Barr stated; the family consisted of outspoken Roseanne, married to husband Dan, their three children: Becky, DJ.

In the series and Dan have their fourth child, Jerry Garcia Conner. Many critics considered the show notable as one of the first sitcoms to realistically portray a blue-collar American family with two parents working outside the home, as well as lead characters who were noticeably overweight without their weight being the target of jokes. Establishing shots were photographed in Evansville, the hometown of first-season producer Matt Williams. Exterior shots of the Conner household were based on a real home located in Evansville, located at 619 S. Runnymeade Avenue, a few blocks from Williams' alma mater, the University of Evansville. Barr's real-life brother and sister are gay, which inspired her to push for introducing gay characters and issues into the show. "My show seeks to portray various slices of real life, homosexuals are a reality," said Barr. Provocative storylines have been an integral part of the series throughout its existence. Roseanne is a line worker at Wellman Plastics, along with her sister Jackie and friend Crystal.

Jackie has a brief relationship with the foreman at Wellman. Dan finds sporadic work as a construction contractor and faces a strained relationship with his irresponsible and womanizing father. Roseanne's parents, Beverly and Al, consider moving to Lanford, but decide against it. Tomboy Darlene struggles with her femininity as she gets her first period. Becky faces dating problems with her first boyfriend Chip, introduced in the "Lover's Lane" episode. Season one finds the Conners experiencing, surviving, a tornado. In the "Death and Stuff" episode a door-to-door salesman dies in the Conners' kitchen, in the season finale, Roseanne stands up to a new foreman, when she leads Jackie and other coworkers as they quit Wellman Plastics. DJ is played by Sal Barone in the pilot episode and by Michael Fishman for the remainder of the series. There is a running gag in this season. Other notable guest stars during the season include Bill Sadler as Dwight, Dan's friend, Robert H

Indiana Statehouse

The Indiana Statehouse is the state capitol building of the U. S. state of Indiana. Housing the Indiana General Assembly, the office of the Governor of Indiana, the Supreme Court of Indiana, other state officials, it is located in the state capital of Indianapolis at 200 West Washington Street. Built in 1888, it is the fifth building to house the state government; the first state house, located in Corydon, Indiana, is still standing and is maintained as a state historic site. The second building was the old Marion County courthouse, demolished and replaced in the early 20th century; the third building was a structure modeled on the Parthenon, but was condemned in 1877 because of structural defects and razed so the current statehouse could be built on its location. When Indiana became a state in 1816, the capital was located in Corydon; the first capitol building was a humble, two-story limestone building constructed in 1813 to house the legislature of the Indiana Territory. The building was constructed by a company owned by Dennis Pennington, a member of the early territorial legislature.

Construction cost $1,500, paid for by the citizens of Harrison County, was completed in three years. It measured forty-feet square with ten-foot ceilings; the building was made of limestone cut from a nearby quarry and, at the time of its completion, was one of the largest buildings in the state. The capitol contained three rooms and became too small for the state government, which had to erect additional office buildings across the street for the state's administration; the lower floor of the statehouse was used by the Indiana House of Representatives. The upper floor was split into two rooms, one for the Indiana State Senate and another for the Indiana Supreme Court, with a narrow hall between them; the building was abandoned as the capitol in 1824 and was given to Harrison County to use as a courthouse. The old capitol building is now a state historic site; when the state government relocated to Indianapolis in December 1824, the government was housed in the Marion County Courthouse. The courthouse had been constructed with state funds in 1822 after Indianapolis was chosen as the site for the new capitol.

The courthouse served as the state capitol building for twelve years. At the time Indianapolis was a frontier site, nearly 60 miles from the nearest settlement of significance, making large scale construction impractical; the relocation to Indianapolis was an arduous task. At the time it was an eleven-day journey by horseback from Corydon to the new capital. To complicate matters, no road existed and a path for the wagons had to be cut through the dense forests during the winter transit as the long caravan moved north; the caravan was large because it contained the state treasury, state library, state records, the furniture of the General Assembly, Supreme Court, Executive Offices, along with a whole host of other implements to aid the caravan on its long journey. Colonel Samuel Merrill, the state treasurer, was authorized by the General Assembly to oversee the move, it took more than a month to relocate the government to Indianapolis. The first session of the General Assembly convened there in January 1825.

In 1831, the Indiana General Assembly approved construction of a new State House. The building was to be funded by the sale of lots of land in Indianapolis. A commission was established and Commissioner James Blake offered a $150 prize to the architect who could design the best state house; the firm of Ithiel Town and Alexander Jackson Davis created the winning design. Their plans were for a structure, inspired by the ancient Greek Parthenon; the building looked much like the Parthenon except for a large central dome. Town and Davis was awarded the contract to construct the building, completed it ahead of schedule in 1835; the State House was built of blue limestone, two stories high. The governor and the Supreme Court occupied the lower floor, the legislature occupied the upper floor, with each house in its own wing; the building was the site of many great events in its history, including a bier for Abraham Lincoln. The building was popular after its construction but by the 1860s Greek Revival architecture had fallen out of style, the building was beginning to become decrepit.

The building's limestone foundation began to fail, many feared a general structural collapse of the building. In 1867 the ceiling in the chambers of the Indiana House of Representative collapsed. A debate was held in 1873 about how to preserve the building but no solution was found. By the time that Governor James Williams was elected to office, the building was about to be condemned, it was demolished in 1877. When the third State House was condemned in 1876 the government abandoned the building; the General Assembly relocated to a large office building, built in 1865 and was housing the Supreme Court. The Governor and the executive staff relocated to another office building; the office building was used as the state house during the interim period that the new state house was being built. In 1887, before the new state house had been completed, enough of the lower floors were usable for the government to move out of the cramped office space and begin holding sessions in the new structure. With Indiana's rapid increase of population during the middle of the 19th century, the state's government increased in size, causing the previous capitol building to become crowded.

In 1865, a state office building had to be constructed to house some of the burgeoning government, the Supreme Court and several bureaus were relocated into the new building. When the state house was condemned in 1877, the state was without a real capitol building, the administration of Governor James

One Hour

One Hour is the eleventh full-length album by German electronic music outfit Cluster. It was recorded live in the studio in Vienna, Austria in July, 1994 and released on January 24, 1995 on the U. S.-based Gyroscope label. One hour of music was culled from four hours of improvisation in the studio; the music is continuous and One Hour is presented as a single piece, the longest Cluster has recorded to date. The CD does have 11 tracks dividing the music. One Hour is structured much like the title track of Großes Wasser, with short, soft melodic sections at the beginning and the end sandwiching a much longer. Rather experimental central section. Bret Love, who reviewed One Hour for Allmusic, writes, in part: One Hour is that-- one hour of songs culled from four hours of continuous improvisation. At times the experimental music flows like some bizarre soundtrack for a David Lynch-influenced student film. At others, it sounds like classical music your Grandma could dig. Although the duo's wildly eclectic, esoteric sound may take some getting used to, One Hour is one of those sneaky discs that continues to grow on you with each listen.

Baysamun

Baysamun was a small Palestinian Arab village, located 16.5 kilometers northeast of Safad. In 1945, it had a population of 20, it was depopulated during the 1948 War on May 25, 1948 by the Palmach's First Battalion in Operation Yiftach. Kathleen Kenyon notes. Rectangular houses with plastered floors show striking similarities to those at Byblos; these "Levantine pier house" were found in Yiftahel, Ayn Ghazal, Jericho. A main period of habitation was during the Pre-Pottery Neolithic B era, but Pottery Neolithic and Bronze Age remains have been found; the population of Baysamun in the 1922 census of Palestine consisted of 41 Muslims, increasing to 50 Muslims in 11 houses by 1931. In the 1945 statistics the population was 20 Muslims, with a total of 2,102 dunams of land, according to an official land and population survey. Of this, 107 dunams were 1,817 for cereals, it was depopulated during the 1948 War on May 25, 1948 by the Palmach's First Battalion in Operation Yiftach in a Whispering campaign.

In 1992 the village site was described: "No traces of the houses remain. The site is occupied by warehouses for agricultural implements used by Kibbutz Manara, established in 1943; the land around the site is cultivated and fish ponds have been constructed close to it."
