Sublette County, Wyoming

Sublette County is a county in the U. S. state of Wyoming. As of the 2010 United States Census, the population was 10,247; the county seat is Pinedale. It is a sparsely populated rural county along the Green River. Sublette County was created February 15, 1921, of land partitioned from Fremont and Lincoln counties, its governing organization was completed by 1923. Before settlement, the western Wyoming mountains were traversed and harvested by fur trappers and traders. Sublette County is named for one of William Lewis Sublette. Today the county celebrates its fur trade heritage with the Museum of the Mountain Man in Pinedale. According to the US Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 4,936 square miles, of which 4,887 square miles is land and 49 square miles is water. Fremont County – east Sweetwater County – southeast Lincoln County – southwest Teton County - northwest Bridger National Forest Shoshone National Forest Teton National Forest At present, Bridger National Forest and Teton National Forest are administratively combined into the Bridger-Teton National Forest.

Big Piney Marbleton Pinedale Bondurant Boulder Cora Daniel Calpet Like most of Wyoming, Sublette County is overwhelmingly Republican.

Since it was created in 1921, the solitary Democrat to carry the county was Franklin D. Roosevelt, who won a majority against Herbert Hoover in 1932 and a twenty-nine vote plurality against Alf Landon four years later. Since 1968 no Democrat has reached twenty-nine percent of Sublette County’s ballots, the only occasions a Republican has failed to pass seventy percent were when Ross Perot took substantial numbers of votes in 1992 and 1996. Sublette County is managed by a county commission with three members. In 2011, Sublette County residents petitioned voters to approve an increase in this number to five as allowed under Wyoming law; the ballot initiative passed and five commissioners were to be seated during the 2012 election cycle. In early 2012, another ballot initiative was presented to voters requesting their approval to decrease the number of county commissioners back to three before seating the two additional commissioners; this second special election, held on May 8, 2012, returned the commission to its previous number of three.

In 2007, The New Yorker reported on the rising crime rate, influx of roughnecks and methamphetamine, the decline in ranching, environmental damage associated with the county's oil boom. In 1965, The New Yorker described a trip along the Green River that set out from the Circle S Ranch in Cora. National Register of Historic Places listings in Sublette C

Dilfirib Kadın

Dilfirib Kadın was the fifth wife of Sultan Mehmed V of the Ottoman Empire. Of Circassian origin, Dilfirib was born in 1890 in Istanbul. Dilfirib married Mehmed in 1907 in the Veliahd Palace. Dilfirib remained childless. On 27 April 1909, after Mehmed's accession to the throne, she was given the title of "Baş Ikbal". In October 1909, she was given the title of "Dördüncü Kadın". Safiye Ünüvar, a teacher at the Palace School, who met her in 1915, described her being young and well educated. On 30 May 1918, Nazikeda met with the Empress Zita of Bourbon-Parma in the harem of Yıldız Palace, when the latter visited Istanbul with her husband Emperor Charles I of Austria. With her beauty, she won the Empress's appreciation. Dilfirib and Nazperver Kadın, Mehmed's fourth wife were with him, when he died on 3 July 1918. After Sultan Mehmed’s death in 1918, she remained in the Dolmabahçe Palace; when the imperial family went into exile in 1924, she moved in her villa located in Erenköy, where she died in 1952.

Urstromtal

An urstromtal is a type of broad glacial valley, for example, in northern Central Europe, that appeared during the ice ages, or individual glacial periods of an ice age, at the edge of the Scandinavian ice sheet and was formed by meltwaters that flowed more or less parallel to the ice margin. Urstromtäler are an element of the glacial series; the term is German and means "ancient stream valley". Although translated as "glacial valley", it should not be confused with a valley carved out by a glacier. More some sources call them "meltwater valleys" or "ice-marginal valleys". Important for the emergence of the Urstromtäler is the fact that the general lie of the land on the North German Plain and in Poland slopes down from south to north, thus the ice sheet that advanced from Scandinavia flowed into a rising terrain. The meltwaters could therefore only flow for a short distance southwards over the sandurs before having to find a way to the North Sea basin, parallel to the ice margin. At that time, the area, now the North Sea was dry as a result of the low level of the sea.

As elements of the glacial series, Urstromtäler are intermeshed with sandur areas for long stretches along their northern perimeters. It was over these outwash plains. Urstromtäler are uniformly composed of sands and gravels. Fine sand dominates in the upper sections of the Urstromtal sediments; the thickness of the Urstromtal sediments varies a great deal, but is well over ten metres. Urstromtäler have wide and flat valley bottoms that are between 1.5 and 20 kilometres wide. The valley sides, by contrast are only a few to a few dozen metres high; the bottom and the edges of an Urstromtal may have been altered by more recent processes the thawing of dead ice blocks or the accumulation of sand dunes. In the post-glacial period, many Urstromtäler became bogs due to their low lying situation and the high water table. In Central Europe there are several Urstromtäler from various periods. Breslau-Magdeburg-Bremen Urstromtal; the meltwaters of the three above-mentioned Weichselian Urstromtäler flowed successively through this valley towards the North Sea basin.

The term Rhine Urstromtal for the Rhine valley from Düsseldorf to its mouth on the North Sea is disputed. The Rhine was a route for meltwaters during the Saale glaciation; the structure of the valley is however older and was formed by recent tectonics. In the Alpine glaciation zone of Central Europe the term Urstromtal is not used. In this region, the Danube and, the Rhine carried the meltwaters away; some sections of the aforementioned main valleys have been given their own names. The Lusatian Urstromtal and the Aller Urstromtal are parts of the Breslau-Magdeburg-Bremen Urstromtal; the Baruth and Eberswalde Urstromtäler are common short names for the associated sections of the Urstromtal in Brandenburg. In addition to the large main valleys there are numerous smaller meltwater valleys, their appearance is similar to that of the great Urstromtäler, but they are shorter. They are not linked to a sandur and a terminal moraine. Urstromtäler of Central Europe were directly connected to the North Atlantic Ocean, via the Channel River, during Pleistocene maximum glaciations, i.e. at times of confluence of the British and Fennoscandian ice-sheets in the intervening North Sea.

Urstromtäler should not be confused with tunnel valleys. The latter are formed beneath, not in the ice mass. In addition most tunnel valleys run from north to south; the principal direction of Urstromtäler is from east to west. Today Urstromtäler are only used by rivers, because the majority have found shorter routes to the sea; the straight troughs of the Urstromtäler between the rivers were used for canal routes due to their low gradient, for example for the Elbe–Havel Canal or the Oder–Havel Canal. Because the land in North America and on the Russian Plain tilts towards the south, the formation of Urstromtäler there during the ice age did not take place; the Mississippi River and its tributaries carried the meltwaters of the North American ice sheet away. In Eastern Europe the meltwaters flowed down the river basins of the Dnieper and Volga. Urstromtäler, whether boggy, posed considerable obstacles to movement in the Middle Ages; as a result, the trade routes converged on points where the valley could be crossed comparatively easily.

These hubs thus became favourite sites for the founding of castles. Examples from the German state of Brandenburg include Berlin, Fürstenwalde and Baruth/Mark, from Lower Saxony the town of Vorsfelde and Wolfsburg Castle. Urstrom H.

Giles Brindley

Giles Skey Brindley, MD FRS, is a British physiologist and composer, known for his contributions to the physiology of the retina and colour vision, treatment of erectile dysfunction. Brindley is best known for an unusual scientific presentation at the 1983 Las Vegas meeting of the American Urological Association, where he removed his pants to show the audience his chemically induced erection and invited them to inspect it closely, he had injected phenoxybenzamine using one mL into his penis in his hotel room before the presentation. He is a pioneer in visual prosthetics, developing one of the first visual prostheses in the 1960s; the device was tested on four blind patients, giving them some basic visual sensation, but given the technology of the day further development was impractical. He developed sacral anterior root stimulators for bladder control in paraplegic patients. Trained in Cambridge and London Hospital, he saw service in the RAF before taking up academic appointments first in Cambridge and at the University of London, authoring more than 100 scientific papers in a variety of subjects.

He was doctoral advisor to David Marr who developed computational theories of vision that had great impact in the neuroscience of vision and computer vision, post-doctoral adviser to Duco Hamasaki, a professor at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at the University of Miami School of Medicine. He was, for a while, a member of the Ratio Club with Alan Turing, Horace Barlow, John Westcott and others from various fields, who met between 1949 and 1952 to discuss brain mechanisms, new technology and related issues, he gave a triennial Royal Society prize lectureship. Brindley invented a musical instrument in the 1960s, the'logical bassoon', an electronically controlled version of the bassoon, it was never marketed. He has composed music for wind instruments, including Variations on a Theme by Schoenberg and The Watermans Daughter. Physiology of the Retina and Visual Pathway. 2nd edition.
