Story County, Iowa

Story County is a county in the U. S. state of Iowa. As of the 2010 census, the population was 89,542; the county seat is Nevada. Story County comprises the Ames, IA Metropolitan Statistical Area, included in the Des Moines-Ames-West Des Moines, IA Combined Statistical Area; the county is home to Iowa State University in Ames. The land that today is known as Story County was prairie with the exception of some groves along the larger streams in the area. In 1846 the boundaries of Story County were established; the County is square in shape. The county was named after Joseph Story, a preeminent United States Supreme Court Justice, in 1853; the first settlers to the area came from Indiana from the New England states of New York and Pennsylvania. Many Norwegians and Danes came directly from overseas and inhabited the area; the first large population influx occurred during the 1850s. Story County was not mentioned in the Federal Census in 1850, but figures from the State of Iowa put the population at 214 in 1852.

By 1860 the population had increased to 4,501. Three commissioners were appointed by the Iowa legislature to determine the county seat location. On June 27, 1853, they announced Nevada as their choice. Nevada was named after the Sierra Nevada mountain range in California. Like many Midwestern towns and counties, many prominent locations from the newly explored West and Mexican–American War of the late 1840s inspired the naming of towns and counties in Iowa during this period. Railroad construction did more to develop Story County than any other single factor; the first railroad came to the county in 1864. Railroads were such a decisive factor in determining the location of towns that several communities in Story County moved to be closer to the rail line; some flourishing little towns that were bypassed by the railroad soon disappeared. Although Nevada was long the population center of the county, Ames was the most known of the towns because of the busy railroad depot where travelers would transfer to their next train.

Story County has had five courthouses. The first, a two-level frame building, was erected in 1856. Fire destroyed it in 1863, it was replaced by a similar structure, replaced by a larger three-level building in 1877, situated on the town square; this building's tower served. The fourth courthouse was built in 1967 and placed in service on May 18, 1968; that building is still in use as offices for the Board of Supervisors, Treasurer, Assessor, Information Technology, Facilities Management and Planning & Development Offices. A cannon from the Civil War rests on the lawn; the current courthouse, the Story County Justice Center, opened in 2002. The Justice Center, comprising the law enforcement and judicial aspects of Story County Government; the Justice Center houses the Sheriff's Office & Jail and Clerk of Court. Story County consists of 16 townships and 15 incorporated cities, 4 unincorporated towns; the population of 79,981 in the 2000 census consisted of 71,114 in urban areas and 8867 in rural areas.

According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 574 square miles, of which 573 square miles is land and 0.8 square miles is water.

Quicken Interchange Format

Quicken Interchange Format is an open specification for reading and writing financial data to media. Although still used, QIF is a format older than Open Financial Exchange; the inability to reconcile imported transactions against the current account information is one of the primary shortcomings of QIF. Most personal money management software, such as Microsoft Money, GnuCash and Quicken's low end products, can read QIF files to import information. Intuit's Quicken used to be able to import QIF, but with its 2006 version it dropped that support for several important account types, including checking and credit card accounts; the Australian version of Quicken still allows the importing of QIF files for these account types. However, unlike the American version, it is not possible to export data to QIF or any other file type for any account type; the QIF format does not allow a user to mark the currency. In some cases this may cause problems for users who do use multiple currencies when they export or import into another software package.

Quicken's proposed replacement for the QIF format has been the proprietary Quicken Web Connect format. It is supported by financial institutions to supply downloadable information to account holders by banks that support integration of Money or Quicken with their online banking. Not everybody, was, or is, happy with this replacement; some banks dislike it because Quicken charges licensing fees to use QFX. Other banks pass the fees on by charging customers for downloading QFX files; because Microsoft Money imports either QIF or OFX format files, Microsoft does not charge banks any licensing fees to use OFX for Money, banks do not charge for downloading QIF and OFX files. A QIF file has the following structure:! Type: Literal String Data... ^ Literal String Data... ^ Each record ends with a ^. All the data in the file is stored in ASCII strings, the file could be edited in any text editor. Simple example! Type:Bank D03/03/10 T-379.00 PCITY OF SPRINGFIELD ^ D03/04/10 T-20.28 PYOUR LOCAL SUPERMARKET ^ D03/03/10 T-421.35 PSPRINGFIELD WATER UTILITY ^...etc.

The first line in the file must be a header line. Valid values for accounts are: There are values for QIF files of internal Quicken information: A header line is not followed by a separator line; the Detail section consists of several Detail Items, each on a separate line. Each line begins with a single character identifying code in the first column, followed by the literal data for that field; the detail item is terminated by a separator line. The fields can be in any order. If a single transaction block contains several detail items with same code, the last row is used for import. Standard detail item Investment Actions Notes The S, E, $, % fields are repeated for each split of this transaction. For investment action codes that end in X, the Category field indicates the other account used to transfer cash from or to. If the line following an XS record does not begin with ^ or X, considered a continuation of the XS record. All the fields in detail items are optional—if not included, that field will be left blank in the imported transaction.

Quicken seems to do little error checking on these items. The separator line signals the end of the current transaction; the last detail item in the file should end with a separator line. QuickBooks doesn't allow exporting to QIF. Only the Intuit Interchange Format is supported. An IIF to QIF converter will not solve the problem either, as journal entries can't be exported in IIF format, only lists are exportable. A viable way to overcome this problem is to set up a journal report. Print the report using the "print to file" option. Set the file type to Excel before printing. Rename the extension of the resulting file from PRN to CSV. Use this XL2QIF Excel macro to convert to QIF; the Excel file may need to be reorganized to generate the appropriate format for the macro to work, such as separating cheque accounts from term deposits, etc. The above referenced Excel macro supports split transactions. See references for further examples of reporting to excel While Intuit only supports QIF importing on asset, cash, small business payable, invoice accounts, Quicken will still allow you to import transactions using QIF into any account type.

Two methods are explained below: Note: If you need to get data from a QIF file into an account that does not support QIF imports, you can import from the QIF file into a Cash account. Make sure the first line in the QIF file says "! Type:Cash" for importing it into a Quicken Cash account. After importing the transactions, you can copy/paste them into a register of your choice. Tested in 2006 version. Note that you cannot copy cash transactions into brokerage accounts in Quicken 2007. To import transactions into brokerage accounts, a little text editing is necessary. Ensure to prefix your transaction data by copying-and-pasting the top four lines from the example below - the example is for an investment transaction:! Account NJoint Brokerage Account TInvst ^!

Northern Karwendel Chain

The Northern Karwendel Chain is the northernmost of the four great parallel mountain chains in the Karwendel in the Alps. It is made from pure Wetterstein limestone, which has its heart in the Karwendel and runs for a total length of c. 18 kilometres from Scharnitz in the northeast via Mittenwald to the Wörner, where it turns east, until it ends west of the Johannestal valley. It has 25 main summits with an average height of 2,400 m; the highest peak is the Eastern Karwendelspitze. The boundary between Germany and Austria runs along the crest from the Brunnensteinspitze in the west to the Eastern Karwendelspitze in the east; the northwestern side is Bavarian, the southeastern flank is Tyrolean. The Northern Karwendel Chain should not be confused with the southernmost chain of the Karwendel, the Inn Valley Chain, known colloquially as the Nordkette or "North Chain" due to its location north of the city of Innsbruck; the southwestern part is divided by cirques into side ridges, while the eastern part presents a consistent rock face.

A little to the east of its centre point, the chain is interrupted by a marked saddle, the Bäralpl, about 1 kilometres wide and 500 metres deep, a broad plateau which provides the only easy crossing from the Soiern Group north of the range into the Karwendeltal]] and to the next mountain chain in the Karwendel, the Hinterautal-Vomper Chain. The most important summits of the Northern Karwendel Chain, following the course of the chain from west to northeast and east, are the: Brunnensteinspitze Rotwandlspitze Kirchlspitze Sulzleklammspitze Southern Linderspitze Gerberkreuz Northern Linderspitze Viererspitze Western Karwendelspitze Western Larchetfleckspitze, Eastern Larchetfleckspitze Tiefkarspitze Schönbergspitze Südliche Großkarspitze Mittlere Großkarspitze Nördliche Großkarspitze Wörner Hochkarspitze Raffelspitze Bäralplkopf Vordere Schlichtenkarspitze Hintere Schlichtenkarspitze Vogelkarspitze Eastern Karwendelspitze Grabenkarspitze Lackenkarkopf Kuhkopf Talelespitze Southern Stuhlkopf Northern Stuhlkopf Report of the first ascent of the Eastern Karwendelspitze and the Vogelkarspitze on 4 July 1870 by Hermann von Barth

The Doors discography

The following is the discography of the American rock band the Doors. Formed in Los Angeles in 1965, the group consisted of Jim Morrison, Ray Manzarek, John Densmore, Robby Krieger; the Doors became one of the most popular rock bands of their era. Their debut album, The Doors, released by Elektra Records, charted at No. 2 on the US Billboard 200 and produced the group's most successful single, "Light My Fire". The album received several sales certifications including a four times multi-platinum from both the Recording Industry Association of America, from the Canadian Recording Industry Association; the Doors' second studio album, Strange Days recognized as their most creative output, failed to produce a major hit single, though the album sold well commercially but did not reach the same level of success as the debut. It was certified platinum in the United States and Canada; the Doors' third studio album Waiting for the Sun, was regarded as an artistic disappointment when compared to their earlier material.

However, commercially it was successful and reached No. 1 in the US and France, produced their second No. 1 single, "Hello, I Love You". Waiting for the Sun was the first Doors album to chart in the United Kingdom, where it peaked inside the Top 20; the album was certified gold in that country by the British Phonographic Industry, as well as being certified gold and platinum in several other countries. For the fourth studio album The Soft Parade, the Doors chose to incorporate string and brass instruments into a number of their songs; the band was criticized by many for this, referred to as "pop sellouts" and having "gone soft". Despite this, The Soft Parade became the band's fourth straight Top 10 album and it produced their third most successful single, "Touch Me"; the album was certified platinum in both the Canada. To counter the artistic criticism of their last two albums the Doors next released Morrison Hotel; the blues-heavy LP was a commercial success. Although only having produced one single that did not perform well on the charts, Morrison Hotel became another Top 10 album for the band and was certified platinum in the US, in France, by the Syndicat national de l'édition phonographique.

The group next released Absolutely Live, a live album containing snippets of performances edited together from fourteen different concerts recorded in nine different cities in 1969 and 1970. Live was well received and charted in the Top 10 in the US and Canada and was certified gold in both countries. L. A. Woman, was the final Doors album with singer Jim Morrison, who died in Paris shortly after the album's release; the album was praised by critics and a commercial success, it landed inside the Top 10 in the US and Canada and produced two singles, "Love Her Madly" and "Riders on the Storm". Like Morrison Hotel before it, L. A. Woman relied heavily on the blues, a genre of music the Doors had incorporated into their early live sets while the house band at the London Fog, a nightclub on the Sunset Strip, in Los Angeles. L. A. Woman was certified platinum in several different countries. After the death of Morrison, the three remaining Doors members released two more studio albums before they disbanded, Other Voices, Full Circle.

Both albums appeared on the US and Canadian albums charts, both produced charting singles, but the success was limited and the three sought solo ventures. Five years Manzarek and Densmore reunited to record backing tracks over Morrison's spoken word poetry, released The Doors' ninth and final studio album titled, An American Prayer. Morrison had recorded the poetry in separate sessions in 1969 and 1970. Upon release, the album received mixed reviews, but was commercially successful and was awarded platinum status in the US by the RIAA; the use of the Doors song "The End", from their debut album, in the popular Vietnam War film, Apocalypse Now in 1979 and the release of the first compilation album in seven years, Greatest Hits, released in the fall of 1980, created a resurgence in The Doors. Due to those two events, an new audience, too young to have known of the band earlier, began listening and purchasing the band's music; the group's popularity continued to increase. In the 1980s, the band released concert films, live and compilation albums to much commercial success.

In 1991, The Doors, a feature film about the band, directed by Academy Award winning director Oliver Stone, that starred Val Kilmer as Morrison was released, which helped to expand The Doors' popularity more, a new audience had been born. When You're Strange, is a 2009 documentary about The Doors written and directed by Tom DiCillo and narrated by Johnny Depp, it was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Nonfiction Series and won a Grammy Award for Best Long Form Video. The band continues to release compilations through Rhino Records and new live material through both Rhino and their Bright Midnight Archives label.

Kiskiminetas River

The Kiskiminetas River is a tributary of the Allegheny River 27 miles long, in Western Pennsylvania in the United States. The region stretching from the northern side of Harmar Township, Pennsylvania to the Kiskiminetas towns is referred to by the locals as the Alle-Kiski Valley after the rivers; the Kiskiminetas River is formed at Saltsburg, on the border between Westmoreland and Indiana counties, by the confluence of the Conemaugh River and Loyalhanna Creek. It flows northwest in a meandering course past Avonmore, Vandergrift, Hyde Park and Leechburg, it joins the Allegheny River near Freeport at Schenley 25 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. The Kiski-Conemaugh watershed includes much of the historic coal-producing region of Western Pennsylvania; the water quality is considered degraded by numerous abandoned mine drainages in its upper reaches and tributaries, leading to on-going efforts by federal and private agencies to improve the water quality of the river. The Kittanning Path, a major trail in the region used by Native Americans and early European settlers, crossed the river at a ford near present-day Leechburg.

The course of the Kiskiminetas River traverses the following political subdivisions, named in order of encounter traveling downstream. Saltsburg Loyalhanna Township, Westmoreland County Conemaugh Township, Indiana County Kiskiminetas Township, Armstrong County Bell Township, Westmoreland County Allegheny Township, Westmoreland County Parks Township, Armstrong County Leechburg Gilpin Township, Armstrong County Elder Run Penn Run Brady Run Guffy Run Carnahan Run Pine Run Beaver Run Roaring Run Rattling Run Flat Run Wolford Run Long Run Sulphur Run Blacklegs Creek Big Run Marshall Run Harpers Run Nesbit Run Hooper Run Whisky Run Loyalhanna Creek Conemaugh River There is no definite interpretation of the origin of the name, it may come from a Native American phrase Kithanne, meaning "Place of the largest stream." According to regional historians in the area, the name has had several other possible meanings, including: "river of the big fish" and "plenty of walnuts." Robert Walker Smith in his "History of Armstrong County, Pennsylvania" reported that John Heckewelder claimed that the name is "corrupted from Gieschgumanito, make daylight.

In this case, the etymology is: Gisch-gu---day. It was the word of command, given by a warrior to his comrades at night to break up camp and resume the journey, or war-path." Smith described another possible meaning from another source: "It is said in McCullough's Narrative, that the Indians called this river Kee-ak-ksheman-nit-toos, signifying'cut spirit'." Smith noted. It is possible that "Kiskiminetas" means "clear, clean stream of many bends." List of crossings of the Kiskiminetas River List of rivers of Pennsylvania List of tributaries of the Allegheny River U.
