Cathedral Historic District (Dubuque, Iowa)

Cathedral Historic District is a nationally recognized historic district located in Dubuque, United States. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. At the time of its nomination it consisted of 124 resources, which included 96 contributing buildings, one contributing site, one contributing structure and 26 non-contributing buildings; the district was the first residential area in Dubuque, developed into a tightly-knit neighborhood. It is located west of the original commercial district and below the bluffs of the Mississippi River that rise steeply to the west. Although its original structures no longer stand, its historic buildings are from the mid to late 19th century. St. Raphael's Cathedral complex, from which the district receives its name, was important in serving immigrants, including most of the Irish immigrants to the city, in building ties. In 1985, the district was deemed to have retained "most of its original character and fabric" from the late 1800s. Washington Park, J.

H. Thedinga House, Fenelon Place Elevator, Redstone are all individually listed on the National Register

In the 2015 dengue outbreak in Taiwan, a significant rise in the number of dengue fever cases was reported in Tainan City, Kaohsiung City, Pingtung City. As of the end of 2015, official data showed that more than 40,000 people in these three cities, were infected in 2015; this epidemic began in the summer of 2015, with the first reported occurrence in the North District, Tainan. There were several documented cases in other cities and counties but none resulted in death or were of such large scale; the Centers For Disease Control lists several statistics about the outbreak. These statistics are from the Center Epidemic Command Center for the Dengue Outbreak; the number of infections in Taiwan during 2015 was some three times the number in 2014. The CDC of Taiwan's most recent press release, dated 23 December 2015, gives demographics and statistics about the deceased:"Among the 209 deaths found to be associated with dengue infection, 106 are men and 98 are women; the median age is 75 years old.
