Buena Ventura

Buena Ventura è una città in Colombia e Cuba.

(AK: T. 4881; 1. 405'; b. 52'5"; dr. 25'; s. 10.5 k.; cpl. 93; a. 15")

Buena Ventura (n. 1335), una nave da carico, fu varata nel 1913 dalla Northumberland Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., Howden-on-Tyne, Inghilterra; requisita dall'Ente Navale per uso dell'Esercito; trasferito alla Marina Militare il 25 luglio 1918; commissionato il 26 luglio 1918, tenente comandante H. Fitzsimons, USNRF, al comando; e riferito al servizio di trasporto navale d'oltremare.

Il 9 agosto 1918 salpò per New York per unirsi a un convoglio in partenza il 13. Il 14 settembre, dopo aver scaricato il suo carico a LaPallice, Royan e Bordeaux, in Francia, salpò con un convoglio diretto a Filadelfia. A due giorni dal porto il convoglio fu attaccato dal sommergibile tedesco U-46 e Buena Ventura fu colpito da due siluri alle 20:45. Fu abbandonata e affondò pochi minuti dopo con la perdita di 19 uomini.


Legge contro la discriminazione del 1945 ed Elizabeth Peratrovich

L'Alaska Anti-Discrimination Act del 1945 è stata la prima legge antidiscriminazione nella storia americana ad essere approvata. Questa legislazione è stata guidata dall'Alaska Native Sisterhood (ANS) e dall'Alaska Native Brotherhood (ANB), tra cui Tlingit e il Gran Presidente dell'ANS Elizabeth Peratrovich.

Siero Run del 1925

Nel gennaio del 1925 si verificò un'epidemia di difterite a Nome, suscitando il timore che un'epidemia si sarebbe diffusa e avrebbe ucciso migliaia di persone, se non fosse stata fornita la medicina antitossina. A partire da Nenana, le squadre di slitte trainate da cani hanno percorso 674 miglia fino a Nome, consegnando il tanto necessario siero antitossina. Molti aspetti di questo viaggio sono commemorati ogni anno nella corsa di slitte trainate da cani Iditarod.

Internamento giapponese in Alaska durante la seconda guerra mondiale

L'Ordine Esecutivo 9066, emesso dal presidente Franklin D. Roosevelt il 19 febbraio 1942, autorizzò l'incarcerazione di giapponesi, italoamericani e tedeschi americani. I giapponesi americani che vivevano in Alaska furono arrestati e mandati in un campo di internamento temporaneo a Fort Richardson prima di essere inviati ai Lower 48.

Unangax̂ (Aleut) Trasferimento durante la seconda guerra mondiale

Dopo l'attacco giapponese alle isole Aleutine dell'Alaska il 3 giugno 1942, i funzionari evacuano forzatamente i nativi dell'Alaska dalle isole Aleutine e Pribilof. Questi nativi dell'Alaska sono stati trasferiti in sei aree nel sud-est dell'Alaska, alcuni sono stati alloggiati in vecchi e abbandonati edifici conserviera. La mancanza di cibo, alloggio e cure mediche adeguati ha provocato morti e traumi per le persone trasferite.

Collegi in Alaska

Storici collegi per i nativi dell'Alaska sono stati istituiti dai nuovi arrivati ​​americani per detribalizzare e assimilare le popolazioni indigene nella cultura euro-americana. Queste scuole furono gestite da missionari cristiani di varie denominazioni fino all'inizio del XX secolo, quando molte di queste scuole furono rilevate dal governo federale.

La prima guerra mondiale e l'esperienza in Alaska

La prima guerra mondiale è stata una guerra globale durata dal luglio 1914 al novembre 1918 che ha provocato oltre nove milioni di combattenti e sette milioni di vittime civili. Anche prima che gli Stati Uniti entrassero in guerra nel 1917, le donne dell'Alaska si unirono alla Croce Rossa e gli uomini dell'Alaska si recarono in Canada per arruolarsi e combattere con le forze di spedizione britanniche. In Alaska più di 10.000 uomini si arruolarono per servire tra il 1917 e il 1918.

Il Exxon Valdez Fuoriuscita di petrolio

Alle 00:04 del 24 marzo 1989 la petroliera Exxon Valdez ha colpito Bligh Reef al largo di Prince William Sound, in Alaska, provocando una delle più grandi fuoriuscite di petrolio nella storia degli Stati Uniti. Circa 11 milioni di galloni di petrolio greggio sono stati sversati su un'area di 460 miglia da Bligh Reef al villaggio di Chignik, colpendo 1.300 miglia di costa dell'Alaska.

HAARP

I nostri redattori esamineranno ciò che hai inviato e determineranno se rivedere l'articolo.

HAARP, in toto High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program, scientific facility for studying the ionosphere, located near Gakona, Alaska. The main instrument is the Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI), an array of 180 radio antennas spread over an area of 0.13 square kilometer (33 acres).

The ionosphere is the outermost layer of Earth’s atmosphere. It begins at about 50 kilometers (30 miles) above Earth’s surface and contains atoms and molecules that are ionized (that is, they lose an electron and become positively charged) by the Sun’s ultraviolet light. The ionosphere is of particular importance for radio because low radio frequencies are reflected off the ionosphere, allowing for long-distance communications. At higher frequencies, radio communications with satellites pass through the ionosphere. The ionosphere is also where the auroras occur when solar wind particles collide with oxygen and nitrogen atoms.

The IRI transmits at frequencies between 2.7 and 10 MHz with a power of 3.6 megawatts. It transmits radio waves upward into the ionosphere, where they cause electrons to move in waves. HAARP is an ionospheric heater, so called because the excitation of electrons increases their temperature, and it is the most powerful ionospheric heater in the world. By altering the density of electrons in a specific region, scientists using HAARP can study how the ionosphere reacts to changing conditions.

Because of the ionosphere’s significance for radio communications, in the early 1990s the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy proposed the HAARP project, and the Air Force began construction in 1993. The site near Gakona was chosen because it was an area of flat ground that was in the North Polar region where auroras occur. The HAARP site was near a major highway but isolated enough that there were no nearby sources of electrical or radio interference. Responsibility for HAARP was transferred to the University of Alaska Fairbanks in 2015.

HAARP became a popular subject of conspiracy theories. Venezuelan Pres. Hugo Chávez blamed it for the 2010 Haiti earthquake, but most such theories about HAARP concern its use for weather modification or mind control. In response, HAARP scientists noted that the ionosphere is far above the troposphere and stratosphere where Earth’s weather actually happens, and, as for any other effects, HAARP scientists stated that the amount of energy the IRI deposits in the ionosphere is far below that supplied naturally by the Sun and that any effects from the IRI quickly dissipate.


History of San Buenaventura Mission

San Buenaventura Mission is the ninth Franciscan mission founded in California, and the last by Father Jun í pero Serra. The site was chosen within the limits of the present Ventura, Ventura County, near the beach and adjoining one of the native villages, and the usual founding ceremonies took place Mar. 31, 1782. The natives seemed pleased with the prospect and readily aided in the construction of the new buildings. The increase in the number of neophytes was not so rapid as at some of the missions. In 1790 there were 385 in 1800, 715 in 1810, 1,297 while the highest number, 1,328, was reached in 1816. In other respects the mission was very successful it had more cattle (10,013 head) and raised more grain (9,400 bushels) in 1800 than any other place in California. Vancouver visited the mission in Nov. 1793, and remarked on the quantity, variety, and general excellence of its vegetables and fruits. The buildings also were excellent, though the new stone church was not completed and dedicated until 1809. During the first decade of the 19th century the mission continued the most prosperous in California. In 1810 there were 21,221 cattle, 3,276 horses and mules, and 8,543 small stock, with an average crop for the decade of 6,400 bushels. Though losing some what by 1820, the mission still retained first place. The earthquake of 1812, which destroyed the church at San Juan Capistrano, also severely injured the new church of San Buenaventura, and it was feared that the whole mission site was settling into the sea, so that all the inhabitants removed to higher ground for three months. After 1820 the mission declined rapidly, both in converts and in material prosperity.

In 1830 there were 726 neophytes, and 626 in 1834. Up to that time the total number of natives baptized was 3,805, of whom 1,909 were children, Secularization does not seem to have been carried out here until 1837. Bancroft estimates that in 1840 there were about 250 Indians in the community and as many more scattered in the district. In 1844 the mission was reported as still fairly prosperous in 1846 the lands were sold for $12,000. The buildings remained in the possession of the Catholic Church, and since 1843 the mission has been the regular parish church of Ventura, which in garbled form was named from the mission. In 1893 the old church was so renovated as to lose much of its historic interest.

The Indians among whom San Buenaventura mission was established belonged to the Chumashan linguistic family, which probably furnished the major portion of the neophytes.


Rugged outposts in a rugged land

Thousands of gold miners, trappers, and other fortune seekers streamed into the U.S. Territory of Alaska in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. To serve them, roadhouses started popping up along the road, trail, and river systems they used. The structures ranged from large tents (sometimes fashioned from muskrat pelts) to massive timber lodges. They were usually spaced every 10 to 12 miles—thought to be the distance a human could dogsled or walk with all their belongings in a day.

Because these were often the sole businesses in the areas where they were built, roadhouses served multiple purposes, renting out bedrooms or bunks, doling out hot meals (caribou stew, sourdough pancakes) and cold whisky. They also functioned as community centers, post offices, saloons, and trading posts for both settlers and Indigenous people. It all depended on the size of the building and the attitude of the owner. Many had stables or kennels for horses or teams of dogs.

“They were gathering places for all kinds of people,” says Helen Hegener, an amateur historian who wrote Alaskan Roadhouses. “They met the needs of those traveling in these harsh regions.”

Roadhouses weren’t grand. The sleeping quarters were usually just big bunk rooms with straw-filled beds separated by curtains, often heated by oil-drum stoves. Travelers would gather in larger communal areas for dining family-style, story swapping, and playing live music.

Still, they were important reprieves from the elements on Alaska’s migratory highways, many of which crossed Indigenous lands. Depending on the weather and where travelers were headed, it could take over a month to hike into the interior from cities like Valdez and Skagway, making roadhouses vital to adventurers and locals, particularly when winter storms hit.

“The people who owned the roadhouses and those traveling between them really leaned on each other,” Hopper says. In 1917, the Donnelly Roadhouse (about 10 miles north of Black Rapids) took in a family stranded in 30 below zero temperatures. The couples’ infant daughter, believed lost in the snow and ice, was found alive a few hours later by two trappers who brought her back unharmed.

Alaska Nellie was a frontierswoman who operated the Grandview roadhouse in the south central part of the territory. She once dogsledded through a blizzard to rescue a stranded, frostbitten mailman before delivering his packages to a waiting train.

“It’s incredible,” says Hopper. “So many of the stories from that era are about surviving.”


LISTEN: Anchorage’s hot air balloon history rises again in ‘Curious Alaska’ column

Sometimes Alaskans have questions they don’t know what to do with.

Enter Curious Alaska, a series by the Anchorage Daily News that solicits reader questions about pretty much anything and sets reporters on them.

The ADN’s Michelle Theriault Boots and Morgan Krakow have been writing the column. Theriault Boots described Curious Alaska and, in one story, how she got to the bottom of why Anchorage doesn’t see as many hot air balloons as it used to.

Casey Grove: I just have two questions. What, and why?

Michelle Theriault-Boots: Good questions. You know, a lot of our reporting obviously is generated from — what do our readers want to know? But this is this kind of a very direct way: There’s this part of our site where you can go on and ask a question. And it’s defined very, very broadly. What are you curious about about Alaska? And we will use our professional reporting muscle to try to answer those questions.

So we got an overwhelming response. We got just incredible questions, and lots of them. They range from questions about the natural history of Alaska to what’s going on with the Fourth Avenue theater to what happened to all the hot air balloons that used to dot the skies of Anchorage. This is a perfect assignment for me because I love going down rabbit holes of all kinds, and this allows me to professionally go down those rabbit holes.

CG: Well, let’s go down that one in particular. What is the deal with hot air balloons? When were they a big deal in Anchorage, and what happened to them?

MTB: So if you lived here in the late 1970s, you’d probably remember around 1976 or ‘77 — sort of pipeline era — hot air ballooning became a thing. And on still summer evenings, it wasn’t uncommon to see half a dozen hot air balloons floating across the sky, in what was then a much less developed city. And in the early ‘80s, it became a pretty big deal. There was a Fur Rendezvous Hot Air Balloon Race —

CG: Wait, in the winter?

MTB: Yes, yes, in the winter. Anchorage winter weather, when it’s still, is actually, apparently, really great for hot air ballooning. And then it kind of, you know, it hit a peak of popularity and then by the mid to late 1980s, almost overnight, it just kind of went away.

CG: So I think when I first saw the tweet about this, it went something like ‘What happened to hot air ballooning in Anchorage? Was it the cocaine?’ Something like that. So I have to ask — was it the cocaine?

MTB: Yeah, that was sort of part of my lead for the story, you know, insurance and cocaine ruined everything. What I was told was that in the early ‘80s there was there was some partying that went on, maybe not strictly by the regs flying, some bad behavior and that for a time, the public’s opinion of hot air balloonists kind of soured a bit. And cocaine was specifically mentioned as a substance of choice in that era.

It was part of this sort of unregulated lifestyle in Anchorage, where you could do something like, you know, light up your hot air balloon on an empty field off of Lake Otis, float around, maybe touch down in the Brown Jug parking lot, get your free bottle of champagne — which was apparently a thing — and float on without a whole lot of red tape, or interference from any sort of government entity.

But as time went on, that sort of changed. And then there was a point at which insurers stopped selling insurance to hot air balloon operators, or made it prohibitively expensive. And it wasn’t necessarily because of any big disaster — there was no big crash, there was no big incident. It was just something that happened that kind of made it unfeasible, and too expensive, for most people to fly their hot air balloons. And, you know, simultaneously, at the same time, the city — a lot of the open spaces that really lent themselves to that filled in with development, making it much harder to just put your hot air balloon down anywhere.

CG: Well, we should probably ask a lawyer what the statute of limitations on hot air balloon crimes is.

MTB: Right, is that . . . a federal crime?

CG: Could be! So, I was looking at the explainer on ADN.com about what Curious Alaska is, and some of the questions that are mentioned there are like, what’s the deal with the Parks Highway igloo? What is Sarah Palin up to? Why are snow machines called snow machines or snow gos depending on where you’re at? Do you have answers to those questions, or are those in the works?

MTB: Those are questions we’ve gotten multiple times before, but we haven’t specifically tackled any of those yet. I can give you a preview — my Curious Alaska that’s coming out this week is about what’s up with those islands in the Aleutians and the Kodiak Archipelago where there’s cattle on them.

What’s up with those remote islands? And I’m not going to tell you the answer, you’re going to have to read it.

CG: So the cattle . . . There’s a lot of grass there but there’s also volcanoes right?

MTB: You’re just gonna have to read it. You’re just gonna have to read the column.


Gold Mining in Alaska

Only about 30,000 weary stampeders finally arrived in Dawson City. Most were gravely disappointed to learn reports of available Klondike gold were greatly exaggerated. For many, thoughts of gold and wealth had sustained them during their grueling journey. Learning they𠆝 come so far for nothing was too much to bear and they immediately booked passage home.

Miners who came to the Yukon in the winter had to wait months for the ground to thaw. They set up makeshift camps in Dawson and endured the harsh winter as best they could. With so many bodies crammed into a small area and sanitary facilities lacking, sickness, disease and death from infectious illness were commonplace.

Other people stayed in Dawson and attempted to mine gold—they usually came up empty-handed. But instead of returning home, they took advantage of Dawson’s booming infrastructure and worked in or opened saloons, supply stores, banks, brothels and restaurants. Most of the town’s merchants made their fortunes off the never-ending supply of miners arriving consumed with gold fever.


Take a lesson from Alaska’s pandemic history. Take the vaccine.

A highly contagious germ had existed since the beginning of recorded history. In mummified pharoahs’ bones, evidence of tuberculosis was found. It lived in droplets of breath. After a patient passed, the germ could live 24 hours in the corpse.

You didn’t need to do anything special to acquire it.

Then there came the Poliomyelitis virus. It existed somewhat passively until it spread widely in the first half of the 20th century and became a frightful, paralyzing killer in the 1950s, especially among children. Before knowing how it spread, people would even avoid filling their tires at a gas station in highly infected areas. They feared they would bring polio home with them in their tires. Swimming pools, ponds, movie theaters and schools were closed. Strict isolation became a way of life. It turned out it was in feces.

You didn’t need to do anything special to acquire it.

The COVID-19 virus now exists and is spread in droplets of our breath. You don’t have to do anything special to acquire it. Suona familiare?

Tuberculosis has been eradicated because of antibiotics and hygiene education.

Polio has been eradicated because of vaccines.

In these times of COVID-19, I’m hopeful history will repeat itself with eradication of the virus. COVID-19 now has multiple vaccines. Yours for the taking!

I grew up on the grounds of a tuberculosis sanatorium in Seward. Tuberculosis was an epidemic in the late 1940s and 1950s. The only cure then was surgically opening the chest and removing part or all of a diseased lung. That’s what my dad did. He was a chest surgeon. All staff at the sanatorium wore masks. As children of staff, we were not allowed to enter the wards of the hospital. The merchants discouraged sanatorium staff and their families from shopping in town. We could be carriers of TB. The Sears catalog became our best friend, and a general store was opened on the hospital grounds. My friends and schoolmates were mostly Alaska Native children from the Jesse Lee Home orphanage whose parents were in “The San” with TB, or had died from TB or influenza. We were all stigmatized and a little traumatized.

By 1952, 20% of Seward people were infected with polio. The sanatorium converted part of its facility into a rehabilitation center for polio victims. The day that the Salk vaccine came, all of us kids were supposed to line up for it. To a kid, the syringes were those gigantic stainless-steel pokers that they ran through a blow torch to sterilize after each vaccination. My dad had to find me cowering under my bed to get me to line up for that shot. There was no choice.

Did we do anything special? Looking back, I see that my parents and the rest of the medical people in Seward were pioneer warriors, making sacrifices to rid humanity of the scourge of germs and viruses. They didn’t think they were doing anything special. They just did it. All the while, hoping that maybe tomorrow, maybe tomorrow, a cure would be found.

Anyone hesitant to get vaccinated against COVID-19, take one for Team Alaska. In some cases, take two! It can’t hurt. It can only help. If we cry because it hurts, or wounds our pride, know that too many tears have fallen in lonely hospital beds at the loss of life. Too many grandchildren have been born and only seen on Zoom by grandparents. Too many businesses are failing. Too many schools closed.

Let life as we like it begin again. This would be especially kind of you.
