Texas State Parks Evolving for Growing State
The Texas State Parks system is about to turn 100 years old. Since its inception, the population of Texas has exploded and is now concentrated in urban areas. To meet these challenges, park leadership has launched a Centennial Plan. It address everything from building partnerships to getting more people outside. Much of this plan will rely on dedicated funding passed by the 84th Texas Legislature that allows 94 percent of the state sales tax revenue from sporting goods to go toward state park improvements.

Marquette Park Gary, Indiana  4K Aerial Tour
Marquette Park 4K Aerial Tour Marquette Park 1 North Grand Boulevard • Gary, IN 46403 (219) 938-7362 Phone • (219) 938-7380 Fax http://marquetteparkgary.org/ 1865 - 1920 The first road to modern day Marquette Park was constructed in 1865, when settlers first began populating the lakefront area. At the turn of the century, Octave Chanute flew gliders and biplanes off of the dunes in Miller Beach. Alice Mabel Gray, “Diana of the Dunes,” retreated to the dunes for a life of solitude. The area also attracted recreation seekers. Carr’s Bathhouse at the north end of Lake Street was the area’s most popular lakefront destination with bathing facilities, a dance hall, and beach cottages. In 1912, recognizing the recreational potential of the lakefront, City of Gary leaders assembled a committee to create a recreational area with access to the lakefront. After much discussion about how to secure lakefront property, U.S. Steel purchased 116 acres and donated the land to the City of Gary, setting the stage for what is now Marquette Park. 1920 - 2009 In the early 1920s work began on Lake Front Park including the leveling of the sand dune south of the future Gary Bathing Beach Pavilion (the current day Aquatorium). Construction on the Bathing Beach Pavilion continued through 1921 and the facility opened to the public on June 17, 1922. Following the construction of the Bathing Beach Pavilion was the construction of the Recreation Pavilion, completed in 1924. During the Great Depression, Works Progress Administration labor was used for improvements in the park. Also during this time, Lake Front Park was renamed in honor of Pere Jacques Marquette. A monument was erected in his honor in 1932. In 1941, the City of Gary purchased additional lakefront land northwest of the lagoon, extending to Lake Street. During the last quarter of the twentieth century, Marquette Park fell into a period of disrepair. The Gary Bathing Beach Pavilion closed and was actually considered for demolition in 1971. In 1991 the Chanute Aquatorium Society formed and raised funds to rehabilitate the Aquatorium. 2010 MARQUETTE PARK LAKEFRONT EAST MASTER PLAN Download Master Plan Executive Summary In January 2009, the City identified the need for the rejuvenation of Marquette Park and submitted an application to the Northwest Indiana Regional Development Authority (RDA) for financial support. The Marquette Park Lakefront East Master Plan was made possible when the City of Gary was awarded, in June 2009, a grant for $28,190,000 from the RDA for planning, design, engineering, and selected capital and operational improvements. Capital improvements laid out in The Marquette Park Lakefront East Master Plan, provide access to and circulation within the park, preserve and strengthen the park’s natural features, provide new recreational and educational amenities, and restore the park’s signature historic facilities. Collectively, these improvements will help re-establish the park as one of Northwest Indiana’s premier lakefront destinations and enhance the quality of life and park experience for Gary and Northwest Indiana residents Drone: DJI Phantom 4: https://goo.gl/2GSvU3 : DJI Phantom 4 Pro: https://goo.gl/vb8nqr Drone Case: https://goo.gl/7Nm7gt Tablet Used: https://goo.gl/8ECyFA Micro SD Card Used: https://goo.gl/buaUUS Filter Kit for DJI: https://goo.gl/F5c6qo Range Extender: https://goo.gl/7aG3ZZ Back up props: https://goo.gl/WpEvmB Sony VEGAS Platinum: https://goo.gl/9SDvcv Computer Used: https://goo.gl/fELeYc www.timelessaerialphotography.com https://www.facebook.com/TimelessAerialPhotography/

Harper Lecture with Matthew M. Briones: Illusion Fields: Baseball and U.S. History
The study of baseball and the study of American history are not dissimilar. Both rely on origin myths and a profound sense of American exceptionalism. Both also require constant recycling of nostalgia and realism and a need for the scholar to read between the lines. Historian and Quantrell Award winner Matthew M. Briones, whose current research examines the historical interplay of race, class, and sports in Chicago, will reflect on why and how he teaches these two deeply held passions in tandem. Matthew M. Briones is a cultural historian who specializes in the history of Asians and Pacific Islanders in the United States, interracialism, and immigration. His first monograph, Jim and Jap Crow: A Cultural History of 1940s Interracial America (Princeton University Press, 2012), focuses on the home front culture of World War II, interrogating the ways in which different racialized and ethnic groups interacted during a time of heightened sense of possibility for American democracy.

Denver Housing Summit - Creating & Sustaining - Part 2
Creating and Sustaining Affordable Homeownership as Prices Rise. Homeownership is often viewed as a financial tool, but its impact on the lives of Denver residents and families is much broader: access to homeownership helps to keep families in their communities, preserves stable access to services and employment, and supports the long-term wellbeing of children and families. And yet, affordable homeownership is becoming less attainable as home prices in the Denver Metro Area soar.

Mellon Sawyer Seminar on Displacement | Displacement and Creative Activism
Skip ahead to main speaker at 6:41 Displacement has been a structuring force impacting the work of creative practitioners around the globe throughout the modern period. As a prominent factor shaping forms of subjectivity, power relations of inclusion and exclusion, and institutions of state authority and industrial and creative production, displacement has served as a site of resistance for artists, architects, and other creative practitioners while simultaneously molding the frameworks and institutions through which they seek to engage the world. This fifth seminar in the Displacement and the Making of the Modern World series seeks to bring together creative practitioners from multiple disciplines and mediums to engage with the question of how displacement has guided their work and how their creative practice serves as a sometimes physical impediment to the borders, state powers, political economic relationships, and other forces driving displacement. This seminar will begin by allowing the artists and architects assembled here to introduce their work and subjective relationships to displacement before moving into a discussion of how their work serves as both a locus of resistance and a site of institutional critique.

Dragnet: Big Kill / Big Thank You / Big Boys
Dragnet is a radio and television crime drama about the cases of a dedicated Los Angeles police detective, Sergeant Joe Friday, and his partners. The show takes its name from an actual police term, a "dragnet", meaning a system of coordinated measures for apprehending criminals or suspects. Dragnet debuted inauspiciously. The first several months were bumpy, as Webb and company worked out the program's format and eventually became comfortable with their characters (Friday was originally portrayed as more brash and forceful than his later usually relaxed demeanor). Gradually, Friday's deadpan, fast-talking persona emerged, described by John Dunning as "a cop's cop, tough but not hard, conservative but caring." (Dunning, 210) Friday's first partner was Sergeant Ben Romero, portrayed by Barton Yarborough, a longtime radio actor. After Yarborough's death in 1951 (and therefore Romero's, who also died of a heart attack, as acknowledged on the December 27, 1951 episode "The Big Sorrow"), Friday was partnered with Sergeant Ed Jacobs (December 27, 1951 - April 10, 1952, subsequently transferred to the Police Academy as an instructor), played by Barney Phillips; Officer Bill Lockwood (Ben Romero's nephew, April 17, 1952 - May 8, 1952), played by Martin Milner (with Ken Peters taking the role for the June 12, 1952 episode "The Big Donation"); and finally Frank Smith, played first by Herb Ellis (1952), then Ben Alexander (September 21, 1952-1959). Raymond Burr was on board to play the Chief of Detectives. When Dragnet hit its stride, it became one of radio's top-rated shows. Webb insisted on realism in every aspect of the show. The dialogue was clipped, understated and sparse, influenced by the hardboiled school of crime fiction. Scripts were fast moving but didn't seem rushed. Every aspect of police work was chronicled, step by step: From patrols and paperwork, to crime scene investigation, lab work and questioning witnesses or suspects. The detectives' personal lives were mentioned but rarely took center stage. (Friday was a bachelor who lived with his mother; Romero, a Mexican-American from Texas, was an ever fretful husband and father.) "Underplaying is still acting", Webb told Time. "We try to make it as real as a guy pouring a cup of coffee." (Dunning, 209) Los Angeles police chiefs C.B. Horrall, William A. Worton, and (later) William H. Parker were credited as consultants, and many police officers were fans. Most of the later episodes were entitled "The Big _____", where the key word denoted a person or thing in the plot. In numerous episodes, this would the principal suspect, victim, or physical target of the crime, but in others was often a seemingly inconsequential detail eventually revealed to be key evidence in solving the crime. For example, in "The Big Streetcar" the background noise of a passing streetcar helps to establish the location of a phone booth used by the suspect. Throughout the series' radio years, one can find interesting glimpses of pre-renewal Downtown L.A., still full of working class residents and the cheap bars, cafes, hotels and boarding houses which served them. At the climax of the early episode "James Vickers", the chase leads to the Subway Terminal Building, where the robber flees into one of the tunnels only to be killed by an oncoming train. Meanwhile, by contrast, in other episodes set in outlying areas, it is clear that the locations in question are far less built up than they are today. Today, the Imperial Highway, extending 40 miles east from El Segundo to Anaheim, is a heavily used boulevard lined almost entirely with low-rise commercial development. In an early Dragnet episode scenes along the Highway, at "the road to San Pedro", clearly indicate that it still retained much the character of a country highway at that time. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragnet_(series)

Tourism is the travel for recreational, leisure, family or business purposes, usually of a limited duration. Tourism is commonly associated with trans-national travel, but may also prefer to travel to another location within the same country. The World Tourism Organization defines tourists as people "traveling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year for leisure, business and other purposes". Tourism has become a popular global leisure activity. Tourism can be domestic or international, and international tourism has both incoming and outgoing implications on a country's balance of payments. Today, tourism is a major source of income for many countries, and affects the economy of both the source and host countries, in some cases it is of vital importance.
