A ZIP Code is a postal code used by the United States Postal Service in a system it introduced in 1963. The term ZIP is an acronym for Zone Improvement Plan; the basic format consists of five digits. An extended ZIP+4 code was introduced in 1983 which includes the five digits of the ZIP Code, followed by a hyphen and four additional digits that reference a more specific location; the term ZIP Code was registered as a servicemark by the U. S. Postal Service, but its registration has since expired; the early history and context of postal codes began with postal district/zone numbers. The United States Post Office Department implemented postal zones for numerous large cities in 1943. For example: The "16" was the number of the postal zone in the specific city. By the early 1960s, a more organized system was needed, non-mandatory five-digit ZIP Codes were introduced nationwide on July 1, 1963; the USPOD issued its Publication 59: Abbreviations for Use with ZIP Code on October 1, 1963, with the list of two-letter state abbreviations which are written with both letters capitalized.
An earlier list in June had proposed capitalized abbreviations ranging from two to five letters. According to Publication 59, the two-letter standard was "based on a maximum 23-position line, because this has been found to be the most universally acceptable line capacity basis for major addressing systems", which would be exceeded by a long city name combined with a multi-letter state abbreviation, such as "Sacramento, Calif." along with the ZIP Code. The abbreviations have remained unchanged, with the exception of Nebraska, changed from NB to NE in 1969 at the request of the Canadian postal administration, to avoid confusion with the Canadian province of New Brunswick. Robert Moon is considered the father of the ZIP Code; the post office only credits Moon with the first three digits of the ZIP Code, which describe the sectional center facility or "sec center." An SCF is a central mail processing facility with those three digits. The fourth and fifth digits, which give a more precise locale within the SCF, were proposed by Henry Bentley Hahn Sr.
The SCF sorts mail to all post offices with those first three digits in their ZIP Codes. The mail is sorted according to the final two digits of the ZIP Code and sent to the corresponding post offices in the early morning. Sectional centers do not deliver mail and are not open to the public, most of their employees work the night shift. Mail picked up at post offices is sent to their own SCF in the afternoon, where the mail is sorted overnight. In the case of large cities, the last two digits coincide with the older postal zone number thus: In 1967, these became mandatory for second- and third-class bulk mailers, the system was soon adopted generally; the United States Post Office used a cartoon character, which it called Mr. ZIP, to promote the use of the ZIP Code, he was depicted with a legend such as "USE ZIP CODE" in the selvage of panes of postage stamps or on the covers of booklet panes of stamps. In 1971 Elmira Star-Gazette reporter Dick Baumbach found out the White House was not using a ZIP Code on its envelopes.
Herb Klein, special assistant to President Nixon, responded by saying the next printing of envelopes would include the ZIP Code. In 1983, the U. S. Postal Service introduced an expanded ZIP Code system that it called ZIP+4 called "plus-four codes", "add-on codes", or "add-ons". A ZIP+4 Code uses the basic five-digit code plus four additional digits to identify a geographic segment within the five-digit delivery area, such as a city block, a group of apartments, an individual high-volume receiver of mail, a post office box, or any other unit that could use an extra identifier to aid in efficient mail sorting and delivery. However, initial attempts to promote universal use of the new format met with public resistance and today the plus-four code is not required. In general, mail is read by a multiline optical character reader that instantly determines the correct ZIP+4 Code from the address—along with the more specific delivery point—and sprays an Intelligent Mail barcode on the face of the mail piece that corresponds to 11 digits—nine for the ZIP+4 Code and two for the delivery point.
For Post Office Boxes, the general rule is. The add-on code is one of the following: the last four digits of the box number, zero plus the last three digits of the box number, or, if the box number consists of fewer than four digits, enough zeros are attached to the front of the box number to produce a four-digit number. However, there is no uniform rule, so the ZIP+4 Code must be looked up individually for each box; the ZIP Code is translated into an Intelligent Mail barcode, printed on the mailpiece to make it easier for automated machines to sort. A barcode can be printed by the sender, it is better to let the post office put one on. In general, the post office uses OCR technology, though in some cases a human might have to read and enter the address. Customers who send bulk mail can get a discount on postage if they have printed the barcode themselves and have presorted the mai
LGM-25C Titan II
The Titan II was an intercontinental ballistic missile and space launcher developed by the Glenn L. Martin Company from the earlier Titan I missile. Titan II was designed and used as an ICBM, but was used as a medium-lift space launch vehicle to carry payloads for the United States Air Force, National Aeronautics and Space Administration and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration; those payloads included the USAF Defense Meteorological Satellite Program, the NOAA weather satellites, NASA's Gemini manned space capsules. The modified Titan II SLVs were launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California up until 2003; the Titan II ICBM was the successor to the Titan I, with double the payload. Unlike the Titan I, it used hydrazine-based hypergolic propellant, storable and reliably ignited; this permitted it to be launched from its silo. Titan II carried the largest single warhead of any American ICBM; the missile consists of a rocket engine powered vehicle and a re-entry vehicle. Provisions are included for in-flight separation of Stage II from Stage I, separation of the RV from Stage II.
Stage I and Stage II vehicles each contain propellant and pressurization, rocket engine and electrical systems, explosive components. In addition, Stage II contains the flight control missile guidance set; the airframe is a two-stage, aerodynamically stable structure that houses and protects the airborne missile equipment during powered flight. The missile guidance system enables the shutdown and staging enable relay to initiate Stage I separation; each stage is 10 feet in diameter and has fuel and oxidizer tanks in tandem, with the walls of the tanks forming the skin of the missile in those areas. External conduits are attached to the outside surface of the tanks to provide passage for the wire bundles and tubing. Access doors are provided on the missile forward and between-tanks structure for inspection and maintenance. A man-hole cover for tank entry is located on the forward dome of each tank; the Stage I airframe consists of an interstage structure, oxidizer tank forward skirt, oxidizer tank, inter-tank structure, fuel tank.
The interstage structure, oxidizer tank forward skirt, inter-tank structure are all fabricated assemblies utilizing riveted skin and frame. The oxidizer tank is a welded structure consisting of a forward dome, tank barrel, an aft dome and a feedline; the fuel tank a welded structure, consists of a forward dome, tank barrel an aft cone, internal conduit. The Stage II airframe consists of a transition section, oxidizer tank, inter-tank structure, fuel tank and aft skirt; the transition section, inter-tank structure and aft skirt are all fabricated assemblies utilizing riveted skin and frame. The oxidizer tank and fuel tank are welded structures consisting of aft domes; the following data is from publication T. O. 21M-LGM25C-1 The first Titan II guidance system was built by AC Spark Plug. It used; the missile guidance computer was the IBM ASC-15. When spares for this system became hard to obtain, it was replaced by a more modern guidance system, the Delco Universal Space Guidance System; the USGS used a Magic 352 computer.
Titan II missiles were designed to be launched from underground missile silos that were hardened against nuclear attack. This was intended to allow for the United States to ride out a nuclear first strike by an enemy and be able to retaliate with a second strike response; the order given to launch a Titan II was vested in the US President and once an order was given to launch, an audio transmission of a seven-letter code was broadcast to missile silos. Two missile operators would be stationed at two control desks and would record the code in a notebook; the codes were compared to each other and if they matched, both operators proceeded to a red safe containing the missile launch documents. The safe featured a separate lock for each operator, who unlocked it using a combination known only to him or herself, they retrieved from the safe a set of codes. If a match was found the launch would proceed, requiring each operator to input a launch key into their respective control consoles; the Titan II would be required to be unlocked for launch using a six letter combination.
Once unlocked, the operators would have to turn the missile launch keys within two seconds of each other and hold the keys for a further five seconds. This would initialise the missile launch sequence; the silo doors would slide open, giving off a "SILO SOFT" alarm inside the control room. The guidance system of the Titan II would configure itself to take control of the missile and input all guidance data to guide the missile to the mission target. Main engine ignition would occur subsequently for a few seconds; the supports that held the missile in place inside the silo would be released using pyrotechnic bolts, allowing the missile to lift off. The Titan rocket family was established in October 1955, when the Air Force awarded the Glenn L. Martin Company a contract to build an intercontinental ballistic missile, it became known as the Titan I, the nation's first two-stage ICBM and first underground silo-based ICBM. The Martin Company realized that the Titan I could be further improved and presented a proposal to the U.
S. Air Fo
The Fayetteville Shale is a geologic formation of Mississippian age composed of tight shale within the Arkoma Basin of Arkansas and Oklahoma. It is named for the city of Fayetteville and requires hydraulic fracturing to release the natural gas contained within. Named by Frederick Willard Simonds in 1891, Simonds recognized what is now the Fayetteville Shale as three separate formations overlying the now abandoned Wyman Sandstone: the Fayetteville Shale, the Batesville Sandstone, the Marshall Shale. In 1904, the name "Fayetteville Shale" replaced all three of these names; the Fayetteville Shale that Simonds recognized is now considered as the lower Fayetteville Shale. Simonds' Batesville Sandstone was found to be the same as the Wyman Sandstone, replaced the name "Wyman Sandstone", while Simonds' Batesville Sandstone became known as the "Wedington Sandstone Member" after Wedington Mountain; the name Marshall Shale is now known as the upper Fayetteville Shale. The formation holds natural gas in a fine-grained rock matrix which requires hydraulic fracturing to release the gas.
This process became cost-effective in some shales such as the Fayetteville after years of experimentation in the Barnett Shale in North Texas when combined with horizontal drilling. The Fayetteville Shale play began in July 2004 by Southwestern Energy Company in north-central Arkansas with the Thomas #1-9 vertical well in Conway County, Arkansas. In February 2005, Southwestern Energy drilled the first horizontal well, the Seeco-Vaughan #4-22H in Conway County; the US Energy Information Administration estimated that the 5,853 square miles shale play held 13,240 billion cubic ft of unproved, technically recoverable gas. The average well was estimated to produce 1.3 billion cubic feet of gas. It should be noted that, because the Fayetteville Formation is a marine unit, most of the plants found in the black shales must have been washed into the Carboniferous sea from a landmass; however one unit within the formation, the Weddington Sandstone Member, is a series of river deposited sand beds. Fossil plants from this unit were deposited closer to their source.

American Civil War
The American Civil War was a war fought in the United States from 1861 to 1865, between the North and the South. The Civil War is the most studied and written about episode in U. S. history. As a result of the long-standing controversy over the enslavement of black people, war broke out in April 1861 when secessionist forces attacked Fort Sumter in South Carolina shortly after Abraham Lincoln had been inaugurated as the President of the United States; the loyalists of the Union in the North proclaimed support for the Constitution. They faced secessionists of the Confederate States in the South, who advocated for states' rights to uphold slavery. Among the 34 U. S. states in February 1861, secessionist partisans in seven Southern slave states declared state secessions from the country and unveiled their defiant formation of a Confederate States of America in rebellion against the U. S. Constitutional government; the Confederacy grew to control over half the territory in eleven states, it claimed the additional states of Kentucky and Missouri by assertions from exiled native secessionists without territory or population.
These were given full representation in the Confederate Congress throughout the Civil War. The two remaining slave holding states of Delaware and Maryland were invited to join the Confederacy, but nothing substantial developed; the Confederate States was never diplomatically recognized by the government of the United States or by that of any foreign country. The states that remained loyal to the U. S. were known as the Union. The Union and the Confederacy raised volunteer and conscription armies that fought in the South over the course of four years. Intense combat left 620,000 to 750,000 people dead, more than the number of U. S. military deaths in all other wars combined. The war ended when General Robert E. Lee surrendered to General Ulysses S. Grant at the Battle of Appomattox Court House. Confederate generals throughout the southern states followed suit. Much of the South's infrastructure was destroyed the transportation systems; the Confederacy collapsed, slavery was abolished, four million black slaves were freed.
During the Reconstruction Era that followed the war, national unity was restored, the national government expanded its power, civil rights were granted to freed black slaves through amendments to the Constitution and federal legislation. In the 1860 presidential election, led by Abraham Lincoln, supported banning slavery in all the U. S. territories. The Southern states viewed this as a violation of their constitutional rights and as the first step in a grander Republican plan to abolish slavery; the three pro-Union candidates together received an overwhelming 82% majority of the votes cast nationally: Republican Lincoln's votes centered in the north, Democrat Stephen A. Douglas' votes were distributed nationally and Constitutional Unionist John Bell's votes centered in Tennessee and Virginia; the Republican Party, dominant in the North, secured a plurality of the popular votes and a majority of the electoral votes nationally. He was the first Republican Party candidate to win the presidency.
However, before his inauguration, seven slave states with cotton-based economies declared secession and formed the Confederacy. The first six to declare secession had the highest proportions of slaves in their populations, with an average of 49 percent. Of those states whose legislatures resolved for secession, the first seven voted with split majorities for unionist candidates Douglas and Bell, or with sizable minorities for those unionists. Of these, only Texas held a referendum on secession. Eight remaining slave states continued to reject calls for secession. Outgoing Democratic President James Buchanan and the incoming Republicans rejected secession as illegal. Lincoln's March 4, 1861, inaugural address declared that his administration would not initiate a civil war. Speaking directly to the "Southern States", he attempted to calm their fears of any threats to slavery, reaffirming, "I have no purpose, directly or indirectly to interfere with the institution of slavery in the United States where it exists.
I believe I have no lawful right to do so, I have no inclination to do so." After Confederate forces seized numerous federal forts within territory claimed by the Confederacy, efforts at compromise failed and both sides prepared for war. The Confederates assumed that European countries were so dependent on "King Cotton" that they would intervene, but none did, none recognized the new Confederate States of America. Hostilities began on April 1861, when Confederate forces fired upon Fort Sumter. While in the Western Theater the Union made significant permanent gains, in the Eastern Theater, the battle was inconclusive during 1861–1862. In September 1862, Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, which made ending slavery a war goal. To the west, by summer 1862 the Union destroyed the Confederate river navy much of its western armies, seized New Orleans; the successful 1863 Union siege of Vicksburg split the Confederacy in two at the Mississippi River. In 1863, Robert E. Lee's Confederate incursion north ended at the Battle of Gettysburg.
Western successes led to Ulysses S. Grant's command of all Union armies in 1864. Inflicting an ever-tightening naval blockade of Confederate ports, the Union marshaled the resources and manpower to attack the Confederacy from all directions, leading to the fall of Atlanta to William T. Sherman and his march to th
White County, Arkansas
White County is a county located in the U. S. state of Arkansas. As of the 2010 census, the population was 77,076; the county seat is Searcy. White County is Arkansas's 31st county, formed on October 23, 1835, from portions of Independence and Pulaski counties and named for Hugh Lawson White, a Whig candidate for President of the United States, it is dry county, though a few private establishments can serve alcohol. White County comprises the Searcy, AR Micropolitan Statistical Area, included in the Little Rock-North Little Rock, AR Combined Statistical Area; the 45th and current White County Judge is Michael Lincoln of Searcy, who assumed office in January 2007. On May 17, 1862, White County was the site of the Little Red Skirmish between Union Major General Samule J Curtis and a force of about 100 loosely-organized rebels, followed by the Action at Whitney Lane in June. Known as The Skirmish at Searcy Landing. In 1958, Odell Pollard, a retired attorney from Searcy, exposed corrupt election practices at Bald Knob, a small city in White County.
Election workers cast "absentee ballots" for some 30 pipeline construction workers and their spouses. However, the workers were outside of Arkansas at the time of the election, which had a prohibition measure on the ballot; the voters never cast absentee votes, according to their affidavits presented by Pollard to the White County prosecutor. No action was taken. Pollard said. From 1966 to 1970, Pollard was the state party chairman, from 1973 to 1976, he was the Arkansas Republican National Committeeman. In 1988, White County elected an entire slate of Republicans to county offices. Though such Republican sweeps had occurred in northern and northwestern Arkansas, White County was the first in the Little Rock area to turn to Republican as the party made inroads toward a two-party system. A portion of White County is represented in the Arkansas State Senate by the Republican Ronald R. Caldwell, a real estate businessman from Wynne in Cross County. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 1,042 square miles, of which 1,035 square miles is land and 7.1 square miles is water.
It is the second-largest county by area in Arkansas. Independence County Jackson County Woodruff County Prairie County Lonoke County Faulkner County Cleburne County Bald Knob National Wildlife Refuge Henry Gray / Hurricane Lake Wildlife Management Area As of the 2000 United States Census, there were 67,165 people, 25,148 households, 18,408 families residing in the county; the population density was 65 people per square mile. There were 27,613 housing units at an average density of 27 per square mile; the racial makeup of the county was 93.52% White, 3.56% Black or African American, 0.43% Native American, 0.32% Asian, 0.03% Pacific Islander, 0.82% from other races, 1.31% from two or more races. 1.88% of the population were Hispanic or Latino of any race. There were 25,148 households out of which 33.00% had children under the age of 18 living with them, 59.90% were married couples living together, 9.50% had a female householder with no husband present, 26.80% were non-families. 23.40% of all households were made up of individuals and 10.50% had someone living alone, 65 years of age or older.
The average household size was 2.53 and the average family size was 2.98. In the county, the population was spread out with 24.40% under the age of 18, 12.80% from 18 to 24, 27.20% from 25 to 44, 21.90% from 45 to 64, 13.80% who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 35 years. For every 100 females, there were 95.20 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 92.90 males. The median income for a household in the county was $32,203, the median income for a family was $38,782. Males had a median income of $29,884 versus $20,323 for females; the per capita income for the county was $15,890. About 10.40% of families and 14.00% of the population were below the poverty line, including 18.10% of those under age 18 and 14.30% of those age 65 or over. One of the state's largest banks, First Security Bank, was established in Searcy in 1932 as Security Bank. First Security now has 70 locations in Arkansas. Regional ice cream producer and distributor Yarnell Ice Cream Co. has its headquarters in the Searcy's downtown area.
Latina Imports and Latina Nursery are located in Searcy and is one of the largest female, Hispanic-owned companies in Arkansas. The first Wal-Mart distribution center away from the corporate headquarters in Bentonville was established in Searcy. Public education is provided by several public school districts including: Arkansas State University-Beebe Public, established in 1927 as The Junior Agricultural School of Central Arkansas. Arkansas State University-Searcy A technical branch of Arkansas State University Harding University Private, Churches of Christ enrollment over 6000. Townships in Arkansas are the divisions of a county; each township includes unincorporated areas. Arkansas townships have limited purposes in modern times. However, the United States Census does list Arkansas population based on townships. Townships are of value for historical purposes in terms of genealogical research; each town or city is within one or more townships in an
Missile launch facility
A missile launch facility known as an underground missile silo, launch facility, or nuclear silo, is a vertical cylindrical structure constructed underground, for the storage and launching of intercontinental ballistic missiles. The structures have the missile some distance below ground, protected by a large "blast door" on top, they are connected, physically and/or electronically, to a missile launch control center. The La Coupole facility is the earliest known precursor to modern underground missile silos still in existence, it was built by the forces of Nazi Germany in northern Occupied France, between 1943 and 1944, to serve as a launch base for V-2 rockets. The facility was designed with an immense concrete dome to store a large stockpile of V-2s, warheads and fuel, was intended to launch V-2s on an industrial scale. Dozens of missiles a day were to be fuelled and rolled just outdoors of the facility's concrete casing, launched from either of two outdoor launch pads in rapid sequence against London and southern England.
A similar-purpose but less-developed facility, the Blockhaus d'Eperlecques, had been built, some 14.4 kilometers north-northwest of La Coupole, closer to intended targets in southeastern England. Following repeated heavy bombing by Allied forces during Operation Crossbow, the Germans were unable to complete construction of the works and the complex never entered service; the United Kingdom conducted post-war investigations, determining that it was "an assembly site for long projectiles most conveniently handled and prepared in a vertical position". The first underground missile silo was built in the 1950s by the United Kingdom, to house their Blue Streak missiles. Only one test underground missile silo was built at RAF Spadeadam; the UK cancelled the Blue Streak silo project, since the Soviets had developed missiles that could attack with little warning and insufficient time to arm Blue Streak missiles. The UK's ICBM nuclear missile launch mode was changed in 1960, to submarine-launched ballistic missiles.
The German idea of an underground missile silo was adopted and developed by the United States for missile launch facilities for its intercontinental ballistic missiles. Most silos were based in Colorado, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana and other western states. There were three main reasons behind this siting: reducing the flight trajectory between the United States and the Soviet Union, since the missiles would travel north over Canada and the North Pole, they had many defense systems to keep out intruders and other defense systems to prevent destruction. The Atlas missiles used four different launching methods; the first version were vertical and above ground launchers, at Vandenberg Air Force Base on the Central Coast of California. The second version were stored horizontally in a shed-like structure with a retractable roof, to be raised to the vertical and launched, at Francis E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming; the third version were stored horizontally, but better protected in a concrete building known as a "coffin" raised to the vertical shortly before launch.
These rather poorly protected designs were a consequence of the cryogenic liquid fuels used, which required the missiles to be stored unfueled and be fueled prior to launch. The fourth version were stored vertically in underground silos, for the Atlas F ICBM, they were fueled in the silo, since they could not be launched from within the silo, were raised to the surface to launch. The Titan I missile used a similar silo basing of the fourth version. Launch facility configurations varied by U. S. missile systems. LGM-25C Titan II ICBMs were in a one ICBM launch control center with one LF configuration. Titan missiles were located near their control operations personnel. Access to the missile was through tunnels connecting launch facility. An example of this can be seen at the Titan Missile Museum, located south of Arizona; the solid fueled LGM-30 series Minuteman I, II, III, Peacekeeper ICBM configurations consist of one LCC that controls ten LFs. Five LCCs and their fifty associated LFs make up a squadron.
Three squadrons make up a wing. Measures were taken such that if any one LCC was disabled, a separate LCC within the squadron would take control of its ten ICBMs; the LGM-30 LFs and LCCs are separated by several miles, connected only electronically. This distance ensures that a nuclear attack could only disable a small number of ICBMs, leaving the rest capable of being launched immediately. Dense Pack was a proposed configuration strategy for basing LGM-118 Peacekeeper ICBMs, developed under the Reagan administration, for the purpose of maximizing their survivability in case of a surprise nuclear first-strike on their silos conducted by a hostile foreign power. According to the Dense Pack strategy, a series of ten to twelve hardened silos would be grouped together in a line; this line of silos would run north-to-south, as the primary flight path for Soviet inbound nuclear ICBMs would be expected to come from the north over the North Pole. The proposed Dense Pack initiative met with strong criticism in the media and in the government, the idea was never implemented.
The former Soviet Union had missile silos in Russia and adjacent Soviet states during the Cold War, such as the Plokštinė missile base in Lithuania. The Main Centre for Missile Attack Warning, near Solnech
1910 United States Census
The Thirteenth United States Census, conducted by the Census Bureau on April 15, 1910, determined the resident population of the United States to be 92,228,496, an increase of 21.0 percent over the 76,212,168 persons enumerated during the 1900 Census. The 1910 Census switched from a portrait page orientation to a landscape orientation; the 1910 census collected the following information: Full documentation for the 1910 census, including census forms and enumerator instructions, is available from the Integrated Public Use Microdata Series.
