Steuben County, New York

Steuben County is a county located in the U. S. state of New York. As of the 2010 census, the population was 98,990, its county seat is Bath. Its name is in honor of Baron von Steuben, a Prussian general who fought on the American side in the American Revolutionary War, though it is not pronounced the same. There is no direct link between the Baron von Steuben and modern Steuben County, which he never visited. Steuben County comprises the Corning, NY Micropolitan Statistical Area, included in the Elmira-Corning, NY Combined Statistical Area. Ontario County was established in 1789 to govern lands the state of New York had acquired in the Phelps and Gorham Purchase. Steuben County, much larger than today, was split off from Ontario County on March 8, 1796. In 1823 a portion of Steuben County was combined with a portion of Ontario County to form Yates County. Steuben County was further reduced in size on April 17, 1854 when a portion was combined with portions of Chemung and Tompkins counties to form Schuyler County.

Although it is not much mentioned because it does not fit well into the standard narrative of New York State history, in its earliest years Steuben County was demographically and geographically linked to the Susquehanna River basin in Pennsylvania, leading to the port of Baltimore. The Canisteo River, navigable as far as Arkport, emptied into the Chemung River and it into the Susquehanna. There were no natural barriers, like the Cohoes Falls on the Mohawk, to impede transportation, timber and other agricultural products were shipped downriver from what are today the towns of Addison and Hornellsville. Prior to the opening of the Erie Canal in 1825, followed by the railroads, communication with the Hudson Valley and New York City was difficult. Limited to horses and donkeys, it was far too expensive to be used to ship bulky agricultural products. In 1892 a bill was introduced in the Legislature to split Steuben County, with Canisteo, "the south towns" becoming Lincoln County, it did not pass.

According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 1,404 square miles, of which 1,391 square miles is land and 14 square miles is water.

Letting agent

A letting agent is a facilitator through which an agreement is made between a landlord and tenant for the rental of a residential property. This is used in countries using British English, including countries of the Commonwealth. In the UK, New Zealand, the agreement between landlord and tenant is formalised by the signing of a tenancy agreement. A letting agency will charge a commission for their services a percentage of the annual rent. Letting agents will operate under the umbrella of an Estate Agent due to the synergies that exists between the two professions, but there are many agents that deal with lettings. Although there are two main types of renting, letting agents deal with tenancies between private individuals and landlords. There are a number of services offered by lettings agents, including: An Introductory Service - Finding a tenant for a landlord's property; the cost can vary depending on the agent and is charged up-front. Administration Services - This is anything, involved in processing of the application.

This can include referencing, drawing up a tenancy agreement, conducting a check-in, drawing up a schedule of condition, among other things. Fees for this service can vary and non-refundable, unless the landlord withdraws from the process; such fees have been made illegal in Scotland and tenants may reclaim any fees paid through the courts. Rent Collection - Many agents will offer to collect the rent from a tenant for an additional commission; this cost can vary. Full Management - This is the day-to-day management of a rental property. Many agents will provide this service for landlords who wish to have a hands off approach to their investment; this service can cost between 7% and 12.5%. Typical letting agent fees to tenants in England and Wales may include: Administration fee - To cover the Administration Services mentioned above Inventory fee - To cover the costs of inspecting the property and drawing up an inventory Tenancy extension/renewal fee - A renewal fee can be charged if the tenant extends their tenancy beyond the initial term.

Renewal fees can vary in cost but tend to be at lower rate than the original referencing fee Exit fee - Similar to the inventory fee to cover the cost of a final inspection of the property to compare its condition to that at the start of the tenancyThe chancellor, Philip Hammond, promised to ban letting agent fees in England and Wales in his autumn statement of November 2016. To maximise the service that a letting agent provides it is important prospective tenants to make letting agents aware of their requirements before they arrange viewings so that properties are better matched to tenant's needs. Since letting agents act as a matchmaker between property and tenant it is important for them to gain an understanding of customer requirements including. There are no statutory arrangements regarding the regulation of letting agents. Around half of UK lettings agents are self-regulated; the principal organisations for lettings agents are the Association of Residential Letting Agents and the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

These have codes of compliance controls which govern the activities of their members. The English government provides its own accrediting body for letting agents; this body is called NALS. In Scotland all landlords must be registered with the local authority. Whilst agents are not required to register, they are encouraged to do so.

Virgilio Savona

Antonio Virgilio Savona was an Italian composer and singer in the Italian vocal group, the Quartetto Cetra. Savona was born at Italy, his artistic career started early. In 1926, aged 6, he began studying music. Two years he joined a choir and at the age of 10, he debuted in a radio broadcast playing a piece on a piano during a children's program. After high-school, Savona enrolled at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome to study piano. In 1941, he replaced; the group changed name to Quartetto Ritmo at first to Quartetto Cetra one year later. On 19 August 1944 Virgilio Savona married the singer Lucia Mannucci, who joined Quartetto Cetra to replace Enrico De Angelis, who left the group in 1947. Besides singing, Savona arranged for the group, he wrote the music while Tata Giacobetti a member of the quartet, wrote the lyrics. They collaborated for four decades and produced hundreds of songs which made up Quartetto Cetra's vast repertoire. Savona wrote scripts for radio and TV programs, stage shows and films.

During the 1970s, he was active as pianist, orchestra conductor and producer. He extensively researched on folk songs. In 1971, he wrote Angela, a song for Angela Davis, Afro-American communist leader, innocent in prison at this time. In 70s, he published other controversial songs, as Il testamento del parroco Meslier, a violent attack on power and religion, based on the Testament of the priest and illuminist atheist philosopher Jean Meslier. In 1991, he wrote a popup book about Quartetto Cetra, published by Sperling & Kupfer in the Supersound collection, he died in Milan in 2009 from complications of Parkinson's disease

Resource leak

In computer science, a resource leak is a particular type of resource consumption by a computer program where the program does not release resources it has acquired. This condition is the result of a bug in a program. Typical resource leaks include memory leak and handle leak file handle leaks, though memory is considered separately from other resources. Examples of resources available in limited numbers to the operating system include internet sockets, file handles, process table entries, process identifiers. Resource leaks are a minor problem, causing at most minor slowdown and being recovered from after processes terminate. In other cases resource leaks can be a major problem, causing resource starvation and severe system slowdown or instability, crashing the leaking process, other processes, or the system. Resource leaks go unnoticed under light load and short runtimes, these problems only manifest themselves under heavy system load or systems that remain running for long periods of time.

Resource leaks are a problem for resources available in low quantities. Leaking a unique resource, such as a lock, is serious, as this causes immediate resource starvation and causes deadlock. Intentionally leaking resources can be used in a denial-of-service attack, such as a fork bomb, thus resource leaks present a security bug. Resource leaks are due to programming errors: resources that have been acquired must be released, but since release happens after acquisition, many things may occur in the meantime it is easy for release to be missed. A common example is failing to close files that have been opened, which leaks a file handle. Another common example is a parent process failing to call wait on a child process, which leaves the completed child process as a zombie process, leaking a process table entry. Resource leaks can be prevented or fixed by resource management: programming techniques or language constructs may prevent leaks by releasing resources promptly, while a separate process may reclaim resources that have been leaked.

Many resource leaks are fixed by resource reclamation by the operating system after the process terminates and makes an exit system call. Resource leaks are thus a problem for long-lived processes, as leaked resources held by still-running processes are not reclaimed. Resource starvation Software aging
