Positively Fifth Street

Positively Fifth Street: Murderers, Cheetahs, and Binion’s World Series of Poker is a memoir by Chicago area author James McManus set during the 2000 World Series of Poker.

On assignment from Harper’s Magazine, McManus was sent to Las Vegas to cover the trial of Rick Tabish and Sandy Murphy, who were accused of murdering Binion’s Horseshoe casino executive Ted Binion. The trial coincided with the 2000 WSOP, which McManus entered. He won a satellite tournament into the Main Event, and reached the final table, placing fifth.[citation needed] The book is a two-track memoir of his coverage of the trial interspersed with and finally subsumed by the poker tournament.

The book’s title was inspired by Bob Dylan’s 1965 single „Positively 4th Street“.[citation needed]

Positively Fifth Street is being made into a movie by Christine Vachon’s Killer Films with Greene Street Productions. John Ridley wrote the screenplay and is expected to direct the film.[citation needed]

(12702) Panamarenko ist ein Asteroid des mittleren Hauptgürtels, der am 22. September 1990 von dem belgischen Astronomen Eric Walter Elst am La-Silla-Observatorium der Europäischen Südsternwarte in Chile (IAU-Code 809) entdeckt wurde. Sichtungen des Asteroiden hatte es vorher schon mehrere gegeben: am 14., 17. und 20. September 1941 unter der vorläufigen Bezeichnung 1941 RA am Konkoly-Observatorium in Budapest, am 1. November 1978 (1978 VM15) am Krim-Observatorium in Nautschnyj, am 1. Oktober 1986 (1986 TT4) am französischen Observatoire de Calern und am 3. Oktober 1986 (1986 TF10) erneut am Krim-Observatorium in Nautschnyj.

Nach der SMASS-Klassifikation (Small Main-Belt Asteroid Spectroscopic Survey) wurde bei einer spektroskopischen Untersuchung von Gianluca Masi, Sergio Foglia und Richard P. Binzel bei (12702) Panamarenko von einer hellen Oberfläche ausgegangen, es könnte sich also, grob gesehen, um einen S-Asteroiden handeln.

Der Asteroid wurde am 5. Januar 2015 nach dem belgischen Künstler Henri Van Herwegen (* 1940) benannt, der unter dem Künstlernamen Panamarenko bekannt ist. Panamarenko installiert Luftfahrzeuge als poetische Konstruktionen.

Лейб-гвардии Кирасирский Её Величества Государыни Императрицы Марии Феодоровны полк — лейб-гвардейское формирование (кирасирский полк) Русской императорской армии.

За время своего существования неоднократно, в соответствии с традицией военного дела России, того периода времени, именовать полки по командирам и роду оружия (службы), менял наименования (см. организация).

— Письмо Петра Великого к боярину, приказному судье Т. Н. Стрешневу, от 28 марта 1704 года,
Мюнхенская публичная библиотека, за № 635.

Сформирован в 1704 году под наименованием Драгунский Иоганна Данееля Портеса полк.

С 1708 года — Невский драгунский полк; в 1733 году переименован в Лейб-Кирасирский; в 1796 году шефом полка назначена императрица Мария Феодоровна.

В 1790 году, в период Русско-турецкой войны, 1787 — 1791 годов, Лейб-Кирасирский полк, как и ещё два кирасирский (Казанский и ?) и два карабинерных полка, участвовали в эксперименте, в ходе проводимой военной реформы, под руководством генерал-аншефа Светлейшего Князя Г. А. Потёмкина, для определения оптимальной организации формирований Русской армии того периода, на театре войны, все они были соединены в составе Лейб-Кирасирского полка. Эксперимент продолжился в период с 8 апреля 1790 года по 8 февраля 1792 года, в ходе него выяснилось что командование таким громоздким формированием затруднено и имело немалые трудности, и эксперимент был прекращён, полки вернули в прежнее состояние.

С 1831 года Лейб-Кирасирский Наследника полк. При восшествии на престол императора Александра II полк поименован лейб-кирасирским Её Величества; в 1856 году ему пожалованы права молодой гвардии, а в 1884 году — права старой гвардии. По приказу 2 ноября 1894 года, полк именуется Лейб-гвардейский Кирасирский Её Величества Государыни императрицы Марии Феодоровны. В июле 1917 года переименован в Подольский кирасирский полк.

26 апреля 1918 года — полк расформирован (приказ Комиссариата по военным делам Петроградской трудовой коммуны № 72, от 14.05.1918 года).

4-й по старшинству кирасирский полк 1-й гвардейской кавалерийской дивизии. С 1822 года расквартирован в Гатчине. В 1900-х годах в Лейб-гвардии Кирасирском Её Величества полку проходил службу Великий князь Михаил Александрович (в 1899—1904 — Наследник-Цесаревич). Офицер полка ротмистр Куликовский с 1916 года — морганатический супруг Великой княжны Ольги Александровны, сестры Николая II.

Нижние чины полка комплектовались из высоких красивых брюнетов. Общая полковая масть коней — рыжие. У трубачей — серая. 1-й эскадрон — золотисто-рыжие, 2-й эскадрон — рыжие белоногие с проточиной, 3-й эскадрон — рыжие со звёздочкой, 4-й эскадрон — тёмно-рыжие и бурые. Прозвище — синие, или гатчинские кирасиры (связано с приборным цветом сукна). Расцветка флюгера — жёлтый с синим.

Офицеры полка, оказавшиеся после его расформирования разделёнными на три большие группы: в Петрограде, Москве и на Юге России, в течение сентября 1918 года в большинстве собираются в Киеве, где на своём собрании постановляют возродить полк и в октябре — ноябре организованно перебираются в Новороссийск. Там с конца октября формирование эскадрона полка протекало точно также и в тех же частях армии, что и Кавалергардского полка (в июле 1919 года кирасиры Её Величества были представлены двумя эскадронами — 4-й и 5-й эскадроны и пулемётная команда). По прибытии в Крым с 1 мая 1920 года их эскадрон стал 4-м эскадроном Гвардейского кавалерийского полка. Расформирован 27 сентября 1920 года в селе Серогозы в Северной Таврии и влит в эскадрон лейб-гвардии Кирасирского Его Величества полка. Из списочного состава к концу 1917 года (около 60 офицеров) на Юге в рядах полка воевало 38 его офицеров и 15 прикомандированных (из Крыма эвакуировалось 25); ещё около 20 воевало на других фронтах или были расстреляны большевиками. Полк потерял в Белом движении 22 офицера (5 расстреляны, 10 убиты и 7 умерло от болезней) — вдвое больше, чем в мировую войну (10 офицеров).

На 1 января 1921 года в списках полка за рубежом числилось 25 офицеров, на 1 марта 1927 года полковое объединение в эмиграции (Париж) насчитывало 52 человека, на 1951 год — 41. В январе 1928 года — январе 1931 года полковое объединение издавало на ротаторе «Вестник кирасир Её Величества» (вышло 7 номеров).

Battle of Zitlala

The Battle of Zitlala was a battle of the War of Mexican Independence that occurred on 4 July, 1812 on the outskirts of Zitlala, Guerrero. The battle was fought between the royalist forces loyal to the Spanish crown, and the Mexican rebels fighting for independence from the Spanish Empire. The battle resulted in a victory for the Mexican rebels.

When José María Morelos was advancing on the capital of Oaxaca, he routed a Spanish loyalist force at Zitlala, Guerrero. After his escape from the 72-day siege at Cuautla, Morelos joined his army together with 800 men under the command of Hermenegildo Galeana and Miguel Bravo at Chiautla. He then moved to march against the loyalist commander General José María Añorve de Salas at Chilapa de Álvarez followed by General Cerro at Tixtla de Guerrero. The regional Mexican commander, Juan Francisco París, did not move to further defend these towns as his army was occupied defending Ayutla de los Libres.

Gerenal Cerro, knowing that es:Máximo BravoMáximo Bravo was marching with soldiers from Chilpancingo de los Bravo, decided to attack him at Tixtla de Guerrero and informed Añorve de Salas of his plans to that end. As Bravo marched towards Chilpancingo, he received news that Morelos was in the area around the Tlacesoutitlan River and that royalist forces under the command of Julián Ayala Larrazábal were marching towards Petaquillas.

After being informed of these developments, Añorve de Salas ordered Cerro to join his forces, however, a party of 50 men who apparently did not receive the orders or who had not yet begun their maneuvers to join the main Spanish force, were in the town of Zitlala when an insurgent force under the command of Hermenegildo Galeana arrived and gave battle. The insurgents advanced on the town in two sections and eventually were successful in obliging the loyalist forces, who were on horseback, to retreat. The retreating Spanish forces left behind weapons and prisoners which were then taken to Zacatula.

Over the years the castle’s condition worsened. An expected new owners to reconstruction, re-pompázhasson old beauty. The dream realized, of which M. Judit Anda, lead designer of the castle some thought to inform you, dear reader.

The castle was nationalized after the gyermeküdülőnek used. The new feature was transformations, but we can say that in addition to dispatch Mobilia serious, irreversible damage to the building did not suffer. In the 90 years the castle was evacuated and the years of waiting for a new master. The elapsed time is not used for the building technical condition gradually worsened, the park is overgrown.

Ms Derry Márta in 1997, bought the castle and showed complete renovation of that historic preservation of our values are not just talking, but doing it well. By the forgotten, restored mansion in bad condition, he visited thereto, thinking of our past, an appreciation of our values, our future, our children. The number of incredulous surprise, the renovation was completed in record time.

The preparatory work for the survey, design from February to August 1998, the construction work from September 1998 to December 1999, the interior trim was conducted from September 1999 until the end of December.

2000 New Year’s Eve opened the four-star Hotel Sidonia Castle. A dream come true.

Today, 46 beautifully restored rooms, restaurants, meeting rooms, a ballroom, cafe, wellness facilities, tennis courts, beach volleyball court, basketball court, giant chess and many more surprises to relax, unwind.

The renovations were designed with consideration to keep as much as the old manor buildings and new construction to accommodate the existing building.

Due to the increase in hotel room numbers of the two side wings raised roofs and attic sel, NEW stairs at the development of new hotel rooms have been established.

The ground floor of the former increased the glazed veranda conservatory and converted into a restaurant here.

The largest intervention in the build-wing swimming pool this meant, but tried not to disturb the harmony of the castle. The back yard maintained and developed while the current premises of the sauna and nice, varied tetőtömegeit well. The swimming pool with glass, ja polygonal shape not only the park is trying to close a connection, but also refers to the development of the main entrance facade of glazed conservatory as well.

Organically linked to the castle within the castle garden L-shaped farm building, which has been managed by the council, after the nationalization. It worked inside the youth club, village library, hair salon, organized by the place where the village celebrations and gatherings. It was a popular place Röjtökmuzsaj population. The government though would have liked, but he could not sacrifice the order imports. Thus was born the idea that the new owners of the castle undertake the renovation of the farm building, which historically has always belonged to the castle anyway, so that the castle and its environment in all its glory as a hotel to work on. How the community is not exposed to harm, instead they built a place designated by the government of a new, more suitable for today’s needs of the village house, which has not only events venue, but also the permanent home of the local government.

The exchange took place, so that became the village built a new house is proof that good cause to private owners and municipalities can cooperate benefit everyone.

The former economic building of what is now called the k Udvarhaz, increased the amount of attic floor area, making sure, however, that the new building mass should not be too pronounced. Here 13 rooms built.

The Japanese house and external Ponds at t is restored to its original form.

The castle is surrounded by a 6.5 hectare park that diversity, well-known works are here to impress, but opportunities for active recreation.

Walking in the park, we feel tale world was dropped. The „Wizard again,“ Mary Brány chartered civil engineer garden landscape and thus evokes the atmosphere of the garden. „It seemed unlikely to intact existing Dutch bukszusparterekkel articulated and bokorrózsákkal planted garden, based on the plans of Alfred Hajos outdoor pool, a Japanese house, the former owner Verseghi Nagy Elek vault, the vadgesztenyékkel tree-lined walking paths and opens me up.“

has not changed over the years, the garden structure, which once built the Berlin Verseghi Nagy Elek Späth execution of the company. The sculptural work, however, was part of the team in Sopron also Geza Seiffert, Baumann Bela Bela Mechle and personally.

The former park and creation of the atmosphere of the newly built sports fields did not break.

„Export plan for the renovation of the park ahead of preparatory work was more part of the park geodetic survey and inventory of existing crops. Due to the szállodafunkcióból the garden must meet diverse needs that had to be taken into account in the design. The value of existing plants and the former kialakításból remaining protected items matching the features I was looking for the opportunity to provide new housing needs in such a way that the final result of building a harmonious ensemble park in relation born. „- Mary says Brány.

The former vegetation, without exception, the only woody plants were virtually untraceable. the most valuable elements of the park in front of the Dutch garden and the U-shaped inner garden bukszusparterei intact, and vérbükkök huge plane trees, black walnut and the castle.

They examined the trees, the megmaradókat cared for the sick, megmenthetetlen plants, seedlings and undergrowth enveloping cut. After extracting the rock garden beautiful, interesting shape opened to the garden builders, whose introduction into plants is based on the country’s wealth to plant gardens. The lack of new plants are replaced.

So he could develop in Derry Marta handiwork of the „miracle world“, which is now our guests can find the romanticism of the past and the present is comfort.

In January 2014, Professor Dr. Günter Nebel hotel’s new owner, who is trying to preserve the character of the hotel is developed and adjusted to the concept, and the hospitality et, which has always been home waiting for the visitor.

Mount Carmel

Mount Carmel
Hebrew: הר הכרמל Karem El/Har Ha’Karmel

Mount Carmel (Hebrew: הַר הַכַּרְמֶל, Har HaKarmel ISO 259-3 Har ha Karmell (lit. God’s vineyard); Arabic: الكرمل‎‎, Kurmul or جبل مار إلياس Jabal Mar Elyas ‚Mount Saint Elias‘) is a coastal mountain range in northern Israel stretching from the Mediterranean Sea towards the southeast. The range is a UNESCO biosphere reserve and a number of towns are located there, most notably the city of Haifa, Israel’s third largest city, located on the northern slope.

The phrase „Mount Carmel“ has been used in three distinct ways:

The Carmel range is approximately 6.5 to 8 kilometres (4.0 to 5.0 miles) wide, sloping gradually towards the southwest, but forming a steep ridge on the northeastern face, 546 metres (1,791 feet) high. The Jezreel Valley lies to the immediate northeast. The range forms a natural barrier in the landscape, just as the Jezreel Valley forms a natural passageway, and consequently the mountain range and the valley have had a large impact on migration and invasions through the Levant over time. The mountain formation is an admixture of limestone and flint, containing many caves, and covered in several volcanic rocks. The sloped side of the mountain is covered with luxuriant vegetation, including oak, pine, olive, and laurel trees.

Several modern towns are located on the range, including Yokneam on the eastern ridge, Zikhron Ya’akov on the southern slope, the Druze communities of Daliyat al-Karmel and Isfiya on the more central part of the ridge, and the towns of Nesher, Tirat Hakarmel, and the city of Haifa, on the far northwestern promontory and its base. There is also a small kibbutz called Beit Oren, which is located on one of the highest points in the range to the southeast of Haifa.

As part of a 1929–1934 campaign, between 1930 and 1932, Dorothy Garrod excavated four caves, and a number of rock shelters, in the Carmel mountain range at el-Wad, el-Tabun, and Es Skhul. Garrod discovered Neanderthal and early modern human remains, including the skeleton of a Neanderthal female, named Tabun I, which is regarded as one of the most important human fossils ever found. The excavation at el-Tabun produced the longest stratigraphic record in the region, spanning 600,000 or more years of human activity. The four caves and rock-shelters (Tabun, Jamal, el-Wad, and Skhul) together yield results from the Lower Paleolithic to the present day, representing roughly a million years of human evolution. There are also several well-preserved burials of Neanderthals and Homo sapiens and passage from nomadic hunter-gatherer groups to complex, sedentary agricultural societies is extensively documented at the site. Taken together, these emphasize the paramount significance of the Mount Carmel caves for the study of human cultural and biological evolution within the framework of palaeo-ecological changes.“

In 2012, UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee added sites of human evolution at Mount Carmel to the List of World Heritage Sites. The World Heritage Site includes four caves (Tabun, Jamal, el-Wad, and Skhul) on the southern side of the Nahal Me’arot/Wadi El-Mughara Valley. The site fulfils criteria in two separate categories, „natural“ and „cultural“.

Due to the lush vegetation on the sloped hillside, and many caves on the steeper side, Carmel became the haunt of criminals; Carmel was seen as a place offering an escape from God, as implied by the Book of Amos. According to the Books of Kings, Elisha travelled to Carmel straight after cursing a group of young men because they had mocked him and the ascension of Elijah by jeering, „Go on up, bald man!“ After this, bears came out of the forest and mauled 42 of them. This does not necessarily imply that Elisha had sought asylum there from any potential backlash, although the description in the Book of Amos, of the location being a refuge, is dated by textual scholars to be earlier than the accounts of Elisha in the Book of Kings, and according to Strabo it had continued to be a place of refuge until at least the first century.

According to Epiphanius, and Josephus, Mount Carmel had been the stronghold of the Essenes that came from a place in Galilee named Nazareth; though this Essene group are sometimes consequently referred to as Nazareans, they are not to be confused with the „Nazarenes“, which followed the teachings of Yeshua, but associated with the Pharisees. Members of the modern American groups claiming to be Essenes, but viewed by scholars as having no ties to the historical group, treat Mount Carmel as having great religious significance on account of the protection it afforded to the historic Essene group.

During World War I, Mount Carmel played a significant strategic role. The (20th century) Battle of Megiddo took place at the head of a pass through the Carmel Ridge, which overlooks the Valley of Jezreel from the south. General Allenby led the British in the battle, which was the turning point in the war against the Ottoman Empire. The Jezreel Valley had played host to many battles before, including the very historically significant Battle of Megiddo between the Egyptians and Canaanites, but it was only in the 20th century battle that the Carmel Ridge itself played a significant part, due to the developments in munitions.

Archaeologists have discovered ancient wine and oil presses at various locations on Mt. Carmel.

In ancient Canaanite culture, high places were frequently considered to be sacred, and Mount Carmel appears to have been no exception; Thutmose III lists a holy headland among his Canaanite territories, and if this equates to Carmel, as Egyptologists such as Maspero believe, then it would indicate that the mountain headland was considered sacred from at least the 15th century BC. According to the Books of Kings, there was an altar to God on the mountain, which had fallen into ruin by the time of Ahab, but Elijah built a new one. Iamblichus describes Pythagoras visiting the mountain on account of its reputation for sacredness, stating that it was the most holy of all mountains, and access was forbidden to many, while Tacitus states that there was an oracle situated there, which Vespasian visited for a consultation; Tacitus states that there was an altar there, but without any image upon it, and without a temple around it.

In mainstream Jewish, Christian, and Islamic thought, Elijah is indelibly associated with the mountain, and he is regarded as having sometimes resided in a grotto on the mountain. Indeed, one name for Mount Carmel is جبل مار إلياس (Jabal Mar Elyas; Mount Saint Elias). In the Books of Kings, Elijah challenges 450 prophets of a particular Baal to a contest at the altar on Mount Carmel to determine whose deity was genuinely in control of the Kingdom of Israel; since the narrative is set during the rule of Ahab and his association with the Phoenicians, biblical scholars suspect that the Baal in question was probably Melqart.

According to the Bible in 1 Kings 18, the challenge was to see which deity could light a sacrifice by fire. After the prophets of Baal had failed to achieve this, Elijah had water poured on his sacrifice to saturate the altar and then he prayed; fire fell and consumed the sacrifice, wood, stones, soil, and water which prompted the Israelite witnesses to proclaim, „The LORD, He is God! The LORD, He is God!“. In the account, Elijah announced the end to a long drought; clouds gathered, the sky turned black, and it rained heavily.

Though there is no biblical reason to assume that the account of Elijah’s victory refers to any particular part of Mount Carmel, Islamic tradition places it at a point known as El-Maharrakah, meaning the burning.

Two places have been appointed as possible site for the story about the battle against the priests of Baal. The slaughter could have taken place near the river Kishon, at the mountain base, in an amphitheater-like flat area. The site where the offering took place is traditionally placed on the mountain above Yokneam, on the road to the Druze village of Daliyat del-Karmil, where there is a monastery built in 1868 called El-Muhraqa („the Sacrifice“).

Although archeological clues are absent, it has a point in its favor because it has a spring, from which water could have been drawn to wet Elijah’s offering, and secondly there is a sea view, where Elijah looked out to see the cloud announcing rain. On the other hand, in the Bible text it says that Elijah had to climb up to see the sea. There is an altar in the monastery which is claimed to be the one that Elijah built up in God’s honor, but that is unlikely as it’s not made of the local limestone.

A Catholic religious order was founded on Mount Carmel in the 12th century, named the Carmelites, in reference to the mountain range; the founder of the Carmelites is unknown; in the original Rule or ‚Letter of Life‘ given by Albert, the Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem who was resident in Acre, around the year 1210 this hermit is referred to simply as ‚Brother B‘; he probably died around the date 1210 and could have been either a pilgrim, someone serving out a penance or a crusader who had stayed in the Holy Land. The Order was founded at the site that it claimed had been the location of Elijah’s cave, 1,700 feet (520 m) above sea level at the northwestern end of the mountain range; this, perhaps not coincidentally, is also the highest natural point of the mountain range. Though there is no documentary evidence to support it, Carmelite tradition suggests that a community of Jewish hermits had lived at the site from the time of Elijah until the Carmelites were founded there; prefixed to the Carmelite Constitution of 1281 was the claim that from the time when Elijah and Elisha had dwelt devoutly on Mount Carmel, priests and prophets, Jewish and Christian, had lived „praiseworthy lives in holy penitence“ adjacent to the site of the „fountain of Elisha“ in an uninterrupted succession.

A Carmelite monastery was founded at the site shortly after the Order itself was created, and was dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary under the title of „Star of the Sea“ („stella maris“ in Latin), a common medieval presentation of her. Although Louis IX of France is sometimes named as the founder, he was not, and had merely visited it in 1252. The Carmelite Order grew to be one of the major Catholic religious orders worldwide, although the monastery at Carmel has had a less successful history. During the Crusades the monastery often changed hands, frequently being converted into a mosque; under Islamic control the location came to be known as „El-Maharrakah“, meaning „place of burning“, in reference to the account of Elijah’s challenge to the priests of Hadad. In 1799 the building was finally converted into a hospital, by Napoleon, but in 1821 the surviving structure was destroyed by the pasha of Damascus. A new monastery was later constructed directly over a nearby cave, after funds were collected by the Carmelite Order for restoration of the monastery. The cave, which now forms the crypt of the monastic church, is termed „Elijah’s grotto“ by the Discalced Carmelite friars who have custody of the monastery.

One of the oldest scapulars is associated with Mount Carmel and the Carmelites. According to Carmelite tradition, the Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel was first given to Simon Stock, an English Carmelite, by the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Carmelites refer to her under the title „Our Lady of Mount Carmel“ in honour of the legend, and celebrate 16 July as her feast day.

Mount Carmel is considered a sacred place for Bahá’ís around the world, and is the location of the Bahá’í World Centre and the Shrine of the Báb. The location of the Bahá’í holy places has its roots in the imprisonment of the religion’s founder, Bahá’u’lláh, near Haifa by the Ottoman Empire during the Ottoman Empire’s rule over Palestine.

The Shrine of the Báb is a structure where the remains of the Báb, the founder of Bábism and forerunner of Bahá’u’lláh in the Bahá’í Faith, have been laid to rest. The shrine’s precise location on Mount Carmel was designated by Bahá’u’lláh himself and the Báb’s remains were laid to rest on March 21, 1909 in a six-room mausoleum made of local stone. The construction of the shrine with a golden dome was completed over the mausoleum in 1953, and a series of decorative terraces around the shrine were completed in 2001. The white marbles used were from the same ancient source that most Athenian masterpieces were using, the Penteliko Mountain.

Bahá’u’lláh, the founder of the Bahá’í Faith, writing in the Tablet of Carmel, designated the area around the shrine as the location for the administrative headquarters of the religion; the Bahá’í administrative buildings were constructed adjacent to the decorative terraces, and are referred to as the Arc, on account of their physical arrangement.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has its largest Israeli mosque on Mount Carmel known as the Mahmood Mosque in Kababir. It is a unique structure composed of two minarets. The mosque was once visited by the president of Israel, Shimon Peres, for an iftar dinner.

Casa Presidencial (El Salvador)

Casa Presidencial, or „Presidential House“ in the Spanish language, is the President of El Salvador’s official residence and his offices.

Because of the 2001 earthquakes, the president’s offices were moved from San Jacinto to the former Club Campestre in San Benito. As a result, „Casa Presidencial“ in El Salvador refers to several separate locations. One is the president’s current official residence which is located on Avenida Masferrer (approx three blocks north of the Masferrer „redondel“ or traffic circle) in the upper portion of Colonia Escalon (AKA Lomas Verdes). The second „Casa Presidencial“ is the old president’s offices in San Jacinto. The San Jacinto location has been abandoned since the January/February 2001 twin earthquakes. The third „Casa Presidencial“ is the current location of the president’s offices, No. 5500 Manuel Enrique Araujo Highway (known as Calle a Santa Tecla), Colonia San Benito, San Salvador, which had been a country club with small golf course and then the Ministry of Foreign Relations.

Construction work on the original official residence began place in 1911, the year in which the President of the republic, Dr. Manuel Enrique Araujo, made a decree which would authorize the acquisition of a property called “Quinta Natalia”. That property was situated in the San Jacinto neighborhood, to the south of the capital city. On May 9, 1912, the Legislative Assembly allowed the hiring of a national, North American, or European firm for the construction of several buildings, including one destined to be „The Normal School for Teachers“ which would later become the presidential house.

This area had evidence of human occupation since Pre-Columbian times, because of the numerous archeological items found there. Next to the property the famous “Modelo” hacienda lay, where the National Zoo is now located. After the death of President Araujo, Don Carlos Meléndez succeeded him. President Meléndez modified the original plan for the „Normal School for Teachers“ and decided to make it „The Normal School for Boys“. On the 21st of September 1913 he set the first stone on the “Quinta Natalia” property for construction.

This building is largely the work of woman Luis Fleury, whose design combines the elegant Classic and Art Nouveau styles. Its completion was delayed several years because of a series of circumstances, among them the damage suffered from the 1917 and 1919 earthquakes, and the delays caused by the First World War. It was finished in 1921, but not until 1924 did it start to function officially as the Formal School for Boys. In 1931, after the overthrowing of President Arturo Araujo, General Maximiliano Hernández Martínez took over the presidency. He briefly took up official residence in the “El Zapote” barracks. Because of the political, economic, and social difficulties the country was going through at the time and because of security issues of the executive and his family, President Martinez decided to move the offices of the presidential house to the building that occupied the Normal School for Boys in the San Jacinto neighbourhood, close to the “El Zapote” barracks.

The period between the 1950s and 1960s was of great economic growth, because of the raising prices of coffee internationally. Some call this time the “golden age of El Salvador”; this abundance was demonstrated in the splendor and fame that receptions and parties the Presidencial house showed. The old government house is surrounded by four beautiful parks, named after people of national and international importance. These people are: Juan José Cañas, Salvadoran composer and author of the lyrics of the National Anthem; Felipe Soto, famous national composer; Venustiano Carranza, politician of Mexico and president of that country from 1917 to 1920; and Miguel de Cervantes, one of the Best writers Spain has seen, known worldwide as the creator of Don Quixote.

Every president who governed from this mansion has tried to give it a personal touch, such as remodeling the building, changing the carpets or the wallpaper, or acquiring an art object to add to the collection. Some adornments and elements of the current rooms belonged to the former presidential houses. Among these are the Victorian era mirrors that adorn the Hall of Honor. Also, the collection of paintings that decorate the main halls were painted between 1957 and 1959 by the Chilean artist Luis Vergara Ahumada, with the historical guidance of Professor Jorge Lardé y Larín. They were painted during the administration of Lieutenant Colonel José María Lemus. The remodeling works completed during the administration of Dr. Armando Calderón Sol, were coordinated by the private secretary of the presidency, Ángel Benjamín Cestoni and supervised by the interior designer María Eugenia Perla. Earthquakes in January and February 2001 severely damaged the location and President Franciso Flores authorized the relocation of Casa Presidencial offices to their current location in San Benito. The photos on this page are from the new and current location.

William Ashbless

William Ashbless est un poète fictif, issu de l’imagination des auteurs de science-fiction James Blaylock et Tim Powers.

Ashbless fut inventé par Powers et Blaylock alors qu’ils étaient étudiants à l’Université d’État de Californie à Fullerton au début des années 70, en réaction à la qualité médiocre des poèmes publiés par le journal de l’école. Ils composèrent des poèmes en vers libres n’ayant aucun sens et les envoyèrent au journal sous le pseudonyme d’Ashbless où ils furent acceptés avec enthousiasme.

Cependant Ashbless est plus connu comme étant un poète imaginaire du XIXe siècle, rôle dans lequel il apparaît dans Les Voies d’Anubis (The Anubis Gates, 1983) de Powers et, avec une importance moindre, dans The Digging Leviathan (1984) de Blaylock. Aucun des deux auteurs ne savait que le roman de l’autre contenait un William Ashbless jusqu’à ce que leur éditeur commun le remarque par hasard, leur conseillant alors de se consulter afin que les références coïncident.

En 1985, Powers et Blaylock produisirent Offering the Bicentennial Edition of the Complete Twelve Hours of the Night: 1785-1985, un prospectus pour un recueil fictif de poèmes d’Ashbless, publié aux éditions Cheap Street (Les douze heures de la nuit étant mentionnée dans Les Voies d’Anubis comme étant l’œuvre la plus connue d’Ashbless). Le prospectus contenait un poème et une réplique de la signature d’Ashbless (le William étant signé d’un des auteurs et l’Ashbless, de l’autre). Cette initiative fut suivie d’abord en 2001 par On Pirates (ISBN 1931081220) dont la préface est de Powers, la postface de Blaylock, les illustrations de Gahan Wilson et les textes prétendument signés par Ashbless, puis en 2002 par The William Ashbless Memorial Cookbook.
