Biografia[ modifica modifica wikitesto ] Thomas Ruggles Pynchon Jr. La tradizione delle cronache familiari risale molto indietro nel tempo: Per due anni studia Fisica e Ingegneria alla Cornell University di Ithaca NY , uno dei college della Ivy League , rifiutando categoricamente di consegnare la propria foto per il registro delle matricole. Alcuni personaggi nei suoi primi romanzi sono marinai oppure appena congedati dal servizio: Benny Profane in V. Lo stesso argomento in dettaglio: Pynchon si laurea nel giugno ; la sua domanda per una borsa di studio della Ford Foundation, finalizzata alla scrittura di un libretto d’opera, contiene un interessante curriculum che divide in 5 fasi cronologiche successive i suoi interessi letterari: Nello stesso anno il racconto Entropy [16] viene selezionato per l’antologia annuale The best American short stories, La sera mettevo occhiali da sole con la montatura di corno. L’ entropia del titolo diventa la metafora termodinamica di una sorta di equilibrio cosmico:

Aldridge Brick Company

This newcomer in the brick colony is conceded to be one of the finest brickmaking establishments on the picturesque Hudson, famed as the head-center of the industry in this quarter of the globe. All that goes to make a location desirable is found at Newton Hook in great liberality–pure sand in illimitable quantity, hills of clay that literally can never be exhausted and a small mountain of the best shale that the state of New York can boast.

In addition to these admirable resources are the unequalled means of transportation afforded by the New York Central railroad on the one hand and the waterway of the world on the other. Of equal importance with location are the up-to-date labor-saving devices that have been incorporated in the new plant. Newton Hook was formerly Coxsackie Station, but the name was changed recently, partly because it was too frequently confused with the town of Coxsackie on the west shore of the river, and partly because the topography makes it appropriate, for a hook-shaped peninsula juts into the river at that point.

The Cary property is several hundred feet south of the railroad station at one of the most commanding points of the eastern shore.

The Algonkins of the eastern sector from Ottawa city to Oka had become Mission Christians by this time.

Pynchon si laurea nel giugno ; la sua domanda per una borsa di studio della Ford Foundation, finalizzata alla scrittura di un libretto d’opera, contiene un interessante curriculum che divide in 5 fasi cronologiche successive i suoi interessi letterari:

When Laurette Huggins Reviere, a close friend of Ms. Garrison, was found stabbed in her home a week later, Ms. Garrison said today, she and her boyfriend talked about what would happen to the woman’s two children, who had slept over at their house a few weeks earlier. Garrison sat stone-faced and shocked in her kitchen in the village of Wallkill, as she tried to digest the news that Mr.

White had been arrested on Tuesday and charged with murdering Christine M. Garrison’s year-old niece; Ms. Reviere, and four other women. The police say Mr. White has confessed to all six killings and led them to several of the bodies. White, who gave an unusual interview today from the Orange County jail. After the voices told him that he should “take a drive,” Mr.

White said, he would go out and befriend a woman at a bar. Later, he said, the voices would tell him:

The clay bank is or more feet above the river level and the location makes it an exceedingly simple matter to get the material to the mill.

Love of the brewing process, and the industry, continued through the years even as other life events and business ventures took center stage. A series of experiments back then, which allowed father and son to spend time together, have transformed to an all consuming venture which necessitates a lot of time together. The other transformation is that the greater knowledge of brewing now belongs to the son, who is a professional brewer with credentials from the University of California Davis.

Our focus was to repurpose a factory building which had at one time been representative of American innovation and manufacturing might. Our search took us through three states, until in our backyard of Poughkeepsie, NY, we came upon the gem we had been looking for. A structure built like a fortress, dating back to somewhere around , and over the years housing meat packing, paper and box storage, and even a garment factory.

We had a vision for the interior of 40 Cottage Street, which selective demolition, restoration, rebuilding, and the skill of many trades, are making a reality. In the company of friends, new and old, we hope to celebrate the heritage of Poughkeepsie as a manufacturing powerhouse in the Hudson Valley. We look forward to raising a beer with you as we salute 40 Cottage Street, its builders, past workers, and its return to the rank of manufacturing facility.

We will also follow with specific beer and food information as appropriate.

Albany, New York

It is likely the Albany area was visited by European fur traders, perhaps as early as , but the extent and duration of those visits has not been determined. Halve Maen , reached the area in , claiming it for the United Netherlands. Commencement of the fur trade provoked hostility from the French colony in Canada and among the natives, all of whom vied to control the trade. In , a flood ruined the fort on Castle Island, but it was rebuilt in as Fort Orange.

Long Island Like a giant crab claw stretching miles out into the Atlantic from Manhattan, Long Island has close to golf courses ranging from munis to ultra exclusive clubs such as Shinnecock Hills, the oldest formal golf club in the United States, dating back to Tillinghast design and the first public course in the U. Sprawling across a lush, rolling landscape covered with sparkling ponds, the course is as challenging as it is scenic.

It is a short golf course at a little over 4, yards but the layout offers excellent short game practice. It is also a good test of your iron play. Mature trees are abundant throughout the course, specifically concentrated along the fairways. Great Rock Golf Club Opened in , Great Rock Golf Club is one of the newer golf clubs in Long Island but it feels much older thanks to its scenic landscape of rolling green hills covered with mature forests.

The mountainous landscape provides plenty of elevation changes that make it difficult to find a flat lie. At 6, yards, the course is short but it is still a challenging round with narrow, tree-lined fairways that demand accuracy.


He was referring to a specific group of Native Americans he had encountered at Tadoussac, which the Malecite had told him were “Elaegomogwik,” which means either, “These people are our allies,” or “The people on the other shore. Those people call themselves “Anishnabek,” which has been translated as “The Good Men. In hindsight, it would have been better if Champlain had called this large group of related peoples “Manitou-wisiwag,” or “the people who follow the ways of Manitou,” for this word for Great Spirit is unique to their culture and common to all “Algonquian” languages.

One band of “Anishinabe-Algonkians,” the Kiche-sipi-rini” or “People of the Great River,” were possibly the first of this ancient culture to settle down in one place, Allumette Island. Allumette is the largest island in the Ottawa River, the river which forms the boundary between Ontario and Quebec, and there is evidence of sedentary Anishinabe-Algonkian settlements there going back at least 6, years, and occupation in the area dating back 7, years as it became inhabitable after the Ice Age.

This memorandum discusses the definition in the context of such laws. ZONING Any successful zoning scheme which purports to create and attain a single-family zoning district must contain a definition of family. Dating back to , the U. Supreme Court and many state courts, including our New York Court of Appeals, have examined the question of the definition of family, both in enforcement proceedings and in declaratory judgment actions.

This line of family definition cases has followed a very traditional path of analysis. Courts have carefully looked for some reasonable relationship between the zoning regulation and the goals sought to be achieved by the regulation. Generally, they first examine the goal sought to be achieved to see if it furthers a legitimate governmental objective. They then proceed to scrutinize whether the means designed to reach that end — in this case a definition of family– are reasonable.

Courts have regularly found a legitimate purpose in zoning regulations which are aimed at achieving a homogeneous, traditional single-family neighborhood. Supreme Court in Village of Belle Terre v.
