 Keynote Address
Among the American cities which are the headquarters of powerful industrial sectors, Detroit is enjoying a visible renaissance in jobs, downtown projects, and subdivisions within the city as new firms, careers, and training programs flow from the regional expansion of automotive research, design, and computer-driven engineering activities.
Cities must not only encourage the small businesses which are creating new exports from their inner city bases but we must also support the process which Jane Jacobs described as "earning" entrepreneurial skills at the local level.
We must see our cities as capable of holding their own; not as a drag, not as a burden, not as an embarrassment; but as the heart of the region-the vibrant, diverse, colorful, fun, educational and uplifting gathering place for its people and the take-off point for their ambitions.

 Chinatown   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Chinatowns were formed in the 19th century in many areas of the United States and Canada as a result of discriminatory land laws that forbade the sale of any land to Chinese or restricted the land sales to a limited geographical area and which promoted the segregation of people of different ethnicities.
In the past, overcrowded Chinatowns in urban areas were shunned by the general non-Chinese public as ethnic ghettos, and seen as places of vice and cultural insularism where "unassimilable foreigners" congregated.
Because of new ethnic Chinese immigration and the expanded palate of many contemporary cultures, the remaining Chinese American (etc.) restaurants are widely seen as anachronisms.

 Landownership Maps and Atlases:Geography and Map Division
Among those named as owners of city lots were several individuals with female given names, such as “Pilar,” “Maria,” “Ramona,” and “Serafina.” These names illustrate an aspect of Spanish law, which allowed married women to retain family property in their own names and to buy and sell land (see Law Library of Congress).
Not only are the first and last names given for each of the property holders, male and female, but relationships between husband and wife and lots held by other joint tenants are identified and documented in far greater detail than is available for most other American cities and states.

The second-largest Chinatown in North America is in San Francisco, California, where signs, storefronts, proprietors, and even lamp posts bring the culture of China to the United States.
Chinatowns were formed in the 19th century in many areas of the United States and Canada as a result of discriminatory land laws which forbade the sale of any land to Chinese or restricted the land sales to a limited geographical area and which promoted the segregation of people of different ethnicities.
In the past, overcrowded Chinatowns in urban areas were shunned by the general non-Chinese public as ethnic ghettoes, and therefore seen as places of vice and cultural insularism where "unassimilable foreigners" congregated.

 TIME.com Print Page: World -- Qaeda Demons Haunt Saudis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Johnson's murder highlights a growing sense of crisis over the apparent inability of Saudi authorities, despite tough talk and often effective police action against Qaeda cells, to snuff out the terror campaign that has raged on their own soil for more than a year.
Today that campaign targets two of the key support structures of the ruling order — the oil industry, and Western expertise — and has brought violence and uncertainty to the Kingdom's major cities in what appears to be a calculated move to exacerbate a crisis in Saudi Arabia.
Most important, however, there appears to be a strategic awareness of the impact that attacks on the oil industry on both sides of the border can have both on Western economies and on pro-Western governments in both countries.
