Youssef Chahine

Youssef Chahine was an Egyptian film director. He was active in the Egyptian film industry from 1950 until his death. A winner of the Cannes 50th Anniversary Award, Chahine was credited with launching the career of actor Omar Sharif. A well regarded director with critics, he was present at film festivals during the earlier decades of his work, Chahine gained his largest international audiences as one of the co-directors of 11'9"01 September 11. Fascinated by the performing arts from an early age, young Chahine began to create shows at home for his family. Chahine began his education at a Frères' school Collège Saint Marc. Growing up, he attended Alexandria's elite Victoria College. After graduating from Victoria college in 1944, he was determined to go abroad to fulfill his passions, his parents refused, tried to talk him out of him. They enrolled him in the college of Engineering at the University of Alexandria, but Chahine refused and said that he had to "blackmail them, jump out of the window."

He was able to get what he wanted, enrolled in the Pasadena Playhouse in California- where he studied theater and television, but not film. Out of the 200 students that attended, only thirteen took the final examination, only four passed- Chahine ranking first. After returning from Pasadena, Chahine didn't work in Egyptian film. Instead, he worked in 20th Century Fox's publicity department, where he worked with Gianni Vernuccio and Alvise Orfanelli. During this time, a producer turned to Chahine to finish a film after the director had left following a quarrel, but Chahine refused to complete someone else's work. On another occasion, Chahine was offered the position of Assistant Director, which he refused, stating that he was working on Hollywood theaters beforehand and an Assistant Director role was not for him. Chahine was born in Egypt to a Melkite Catholic family of Lebanese descent, his father was an attorney from Zahle and was a supporter of the Egyptian nationalist Wafd Party. His mother, Claire Bastorous was of Greek descent.

She worked as a tailor. Although Chahine was raised Catholic, he was not a believer in organized religion. If asked of his religion, he would state, "Egyptian". At home, the Chahines spoke five languages, common in cosmopolitan Alexandria at the time. Chahine had affectionate parents and had a strong relationship with both of them- though his mother and father had distinct personalities. At a young age, he knew. Chahine would stay under his bed and in his room for hours, picturing himself in the industry- whether in a projection theater, a cinema hall or a production company; when asked about his childhood and early interest in cinema, Chahine said:"At the age of Eight, I discovered that 9.5mm films and projectors were being sold in stores. I saved from allowances enough to buy the projector and became a regular for the Rabbani Bibi films. I used to gather the children of the neighborhood to show them these films; some of them would come up with excuses not to attend. So I had no choice but to form a gang to beat up those who were late coming to the show."

In the following years, two concepts raged Chahine and gagged his interest: indulging in sexual fantasies and cinema. A few years Chahine dealt with the death of his brother Alfred, only two years older than him. Chahine always remembered Alfred's eyes. Most his male actors had eyes. According to Chahine, his father was honest, which seeped into his values and was a trait he appreciated having. Along with honesty, Chahine's father ignited his love for books. Being a lawyer, Chanie's father could not keep up with the tuition bills, so he closed up his law office and took a job in the legal department in the Alexandria municipality so he could send Chahine to Victoria College. Another memory Chahine was fond of, was how his father took him to the desert, taught him how to look for landmarks and find his way back home. Scouting for film locations brought back these memories, their home was aristocratic though they were not rich. They had to be well mannered, mistakes had punishments Despite them being tight on money, they would still have guests over for dinner and lived without paying much attention to bank statements.

After returning to Egypt, he turned his attention to directing. Cinematographer Alvise Orfanelli helped Chahine into the film business. Chahine directed his first feature film in 1950, Baba Amin at the age of 23, two years before the revolution of 1952 that saw the overthrow of the monarchy and the rise of the charismatic leader Gamal Abdel Nasser. One year with Nile Boy he was first invited to the Cannes Film Festival. Sira’ fi-l-Wadi introduced Omar Sharif to the cinematic screen. In 1970 he was awarded a Golden Tanit at the Carthage Film Festival for al-Ikhtiyar. With The Sparrow, in which he showed his political opinions after the Six-Day War with Israel, he directed the first Egypt–Algeria co-production, he won the Silver Bear – Special Jury Priz at the 29th Berlin International Film Festival for Alexandria... Why?, the first instalment in what would prove to be an autobiographic quartet, completed with An Egyptian Story, Alexandria and Again, Alexandria...

List of pipeline accidents in the United States in 2009

The following is a list of pipeline accidents in the United States in 2009. It is one of several lists of U. S. pipeline accidents. See list of natural gas and oil production accidents in the United States; this is not a complete list of all pipeline accidents. For natural gas alone, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, a United States Department of Transportation agency, has collected data on more than 3,200 accidents deemed serious or significant since 1987. A "significant incident" results in any of the following consequences: fatality or injury requiring in-patient hospitalization $50,000 or more in total costs, measured in 1984 dollars liquid releases of five or more barrels releases resulting in an unintentional fire or explosionPHMSA and the National Transportation Safety Board post incident data and results of investigations into accidents involving pipelines that carry a variety of products, including natural gas, diesel fuel, kerosene, jet fuel, carbon dioxide, other substances.

Pipelines are repurposed to carry different products. On January 4, 2009, a 6.625-inch storage well line operated by Columbia Gas Transmission Company in Elk View, Kanawha County, West Virginia, ruptured due to internal corrosion pitting, complicated by low impact toughness of the pipe material, causing $29,011 in damage. On January 15, an accidental massive gas release at Pump Station 1 of the trans-Alaskan pipeline by Alyeska Pipeline Service Company threatened the site at the time; the company that runs the pipeline acknowledges a fire or explosion, had the gas ignited, could have imperiled the station's 60-plus workers and caused "an extended shutdown" of oil fields. There was no explosion; the incident occurred as BP workers used a cleaning device called a pig to swab oil out of an old pipeline the company was preparing to decommission. The 34-inch pipe was among major Prudhoe trunk lines found in 2006 to be ravaged with corrosion, due to BP's admitted lack of proper maintenance. A large volume of gas bypassed the pig somehow, rushed to Pump Station 1, a key asset through which every drop of oil coming off the North Slope must pass.

On February 11, a gas pipeline exploded and burned near a natural gas treatment plant, near Carthage, Texas. There were no injuries. At 5 p.m. on February 18, a rupture of pipeline near the pump station and terminal located in Cygnet, owned by Philadelphia-based Sunoco, resulted in one of the largest oil spills in Wood County history. Upon learning of the release, the company shut down the pipeline, stopped operations at the pump station and terminal, notified the appropriate authorities, began an emergency response; as of 11:05 a.m. ET on February 19, the release had been stopped from the pipe; the damaged pipeline, operating at the time, released crude oil into a farm field. About 19,000 gallons of the 52,500 gallons released were recovered; some of the crude oil did contaminate a local creek. There were injuries. On February 19, leaking gas was detected near homes, in Somerset, Massachusetts. Evacuations followed, but one resident who did not respond to knocking on doors was killed, when the gas exploded.

Prior excavation damage to a gas main was the cause. On May 4, Kinder Morgan's Florida Gas Transmission pipeline burst near Palm City and Hobe City, Florida; the explosion ejected 106 feet of buried pipe weighing about 5,000 pounds out of the ground and onto the right-of-way between Interstate 95 and the Florida Turnpike. The rupture was near a high school, within the 366-foot potential impact radius. Two people were injured when their car ran off the road, a Sheriff's deputy walked through a dense cloud and inhaled natural gas; the escaping gas did not ignite. The pipe was manufactured in 1959; the leak caused $596,218 in property damage. FGT was cited for safety violations: failing to identify a high-consequence area, failing to test operators for alcohol and drugs, failing to have prompt emergency response. On May 5, a natural gas pipeline exploded and caught on fire, near Rockville, Indiana in Parke County, about 24 miles north of Terre Haute, Indiana; the cause of this failure was determined to be external corrosion.

Additional work performed as a result of this order provided significant indications of external corrosion in various sections of this line. Pictures have been released around the area showing the damage caused. 52 people were evacuated in a one-mile area of the explosion. No injuries reported. On May 21, an Enbridge pipeline pig sending trap in Superior, Wisconsin leaked from operator error, spilling about 6500 gallons of crude oil. 700 cubic yards of contaminated soil had to be removed. On July 15, an explosion occurred at Kinder Morgan's Midcontinent Express pipeline natural gas metering station, under construction, while it was being pressure tested with nitrogen, in Smith County, Mississippi. One worker was killed, two others injured. There was no fire; the workers were "literally right on top" of the explosion. One worker was injured; the explosion snapped and bent a pipeline connected to a massive separator unit, slung several yards. On August 10, operators of a Belle Fourche pipeline incorrectly operated the line, causing it to fail, near Edgerton, Wyoming.

About 30,000 gallons of crude oil were spill, with about 1,200 gallons being lost. On August 17, a pipeline was found leaking by an aerial patrol in Oklahoma. 50 barrels of diesel fuel were estimated to have been released as a result of this accident, non

Adele Goodman Clark

Adele Goodman Clark was an American artist and suffragist. Clark was born in 1882 in Montgomery, Alabama to Robert Clark, a railroad worker from Belfast, Estelle Goodman Clark, a Jewish music teacher from New Orleans; the family lived in New Orleans and Pass Christian, Mississippi before moving to Richmond, Virginia in 1894. Clark attended the Virginia Randolph Ellett School, in 1906 went to the New York School of Art on a scholarship, studying under artists including Robert Henri and William Merritt Chase. Clark's activist career began in 1909, when she and 18 other women, including Nora Houston, Ellen Glasgow, Lila Meade Valentine, Kate Waller Barrett, Mary Johnston, founded the Equal Suffrage League of Virginia. In 1910, she was a delegate to the National American Woman Suffrage Association convention in Washington, D. C. Clark and Nora Houston would set up set up their easels at the corner of Fifth and Broad Streets in downtown Richmond to share their "Street corner sketches"--chalk drawings on rolls of paper that illustrated their oratory.

"Lots of people made speeches, but we were the only ones sketching, that drew crowds" Miss Clark once remembered. During their chalk talks and Houston spoke about women's suffrage and handed out leaflets to people who approached; when the Art Club of Richmond dissolved in 1917, Clark and Houston opened a studio together, two years founded the Virginia Academy of Fine Arts and Handicrafts. In the months before the 1920 elections, when there were threats and rumors of spurious challenges against black women voters and Houston invited black leaders to their studio to plan ways to confront the issue, they decided. Clark and Houston continued to be involved in the interracial movement after this election, they participated in art-related activism, campaigning for the resurrection of the Academy of Sciences and Fine Arts, which opened in 1930 as the Richmond Academy of Arts and became the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. When women were given the vote in 1920, the Equal Suffrage League became the Virginia League of Women Voters, Clark was its first chair before becoming president the next year.

She was its president from 1921 to 1925, again from 1929 to 1944. Clark was elected to the board of the National League of Women Voters in 1924 as a regional director, in 1925 she was elected Second Vice-President, a position she held until 1928. In 1928, Clark and Houston bought a house together on Chamberlayne Avenue in Richmond, which came to be known as "The Brattery." Clark held positions in a number of government and educational bodies, including secretary of Governor E. Lee Trinkle's Commission on the Simplification of State and Local Government and of Governor Harry F. Byrd's Liberal Arts College for Women Commission, dean of women at the College of William and Mary. During the New Deal, she was a field supervisor for the National Reemployment Service before becoming, in 1936, the director of the Virginia Arts Project in the Works Progress Administration, she was on the Virginia Arts Commission from 1941–64, having helped establish it in 1916. Clark, who put her campaign for women's suffrage into her artistic work, commented that her art and her activism were related, saying, "I've always tried to combine my interest in art with my interest in government."

She met fellow artist Nora Houston at the Art School of Richmond, where she had taken classes under Lillie Logan and where she taught after returning to Virginia. Houston became Clark's lesbian life partner until her death in 1942. Soon after Nora Houston died in 1942, Clark's cousin Willoughby Ions an artist, moved in with Clark at the Chamberlayne Avenue house she had shared with Houston. Clark, an Episcopalian, converted to Roman Catholicism, Houston's religion, on November 21, 1942. Clark chaired the Richmond Diocesan Council of Catholic Women's Legislative Committee from 1949-59, she continued to be outspoken on political issues, opposing the Equal Rights Amendment in the belief that it was unnecessary. Clark died in a retirement community in Richmond, Virginia on June 4, 1983, aged 100. Documenting the American South: Oral History Interview with Adele Clark, February 28, 1964.
