siderations of economy and service improvement led to the intro-duction of carrier operation into all types of toll plant as rapidly as thestate of the art permitted. This directly affects the toll switching planfrom the standpoint of routing and location of switching centers. At present, carrier systems use four broad categories of facilities: openwire, conventional paired or quadded cables, coaxial cable and radio. Several types of open wire carrier systems permitting from one tofifteen telephone channels above the frequency band of the voice channelare now in use.

*Special Guest vocalist Cliff Payne

AN EXTRAORDINARY PAYNE: As he prepares to record their first CD, Harlem-born Clif Payne continues to established himself as one of the jazz globe's many unique vocalists. ìClif Payne is a lush tenor bursting with soaring gospel melismas.î Los Angeles instances, Don Heckman "An impressive, great singer!" Emilio Castillo, Tower of Power "i prefer your sound!," Fred Hersch, jazz pianist, Grammy nominee "Clif is a separate, phenomenal singer! A real pro!" Peter Cuschieri, Mgr., Angelica's Concert Venue YOUR HOUSE OF PAYNE: Clif is the son of James "Buddy" Payne, reedsman aided by the Lionel Hampton, Lucky Millinder and Fletcher Henderson bands of Harlem Renaissance, 1920s-1950s. Clif's mom, Aline, educated by Tuskegee legendries James Weldon Johnson and William Dawson, ended up being an ensemble vocalist who once backed Nat ìKingî Cole. WEST COAST PAYNE: Clif's musical ascent began when Bobby McFerrin featured Clif as a particular guest vocalist in bay area. Since that time, Clif has performed at San Francisco's Great United states Music Hall, Yoshi's, western Hollywood's Troubadour and LA's Jazz Bakery. He's opened for Johnny Mathis, Tony Bennett, Dionne Warwick and has done with Tower of Power. His recordings consist of commercials & cds by Dave Koz and jazz fushionists Hiroshima. As a guitarist, Clif has supported deep minimal, Wolfman Jack, Danny Gans and former Platters lead vocalist Sonny Turner.

THE VOCALS OF PAYNE: first of all, Clif Payne is a vocalist. And, as a vocalist, Clif effortlessly paints a colorful soundscape in which the hues of jazz, gospel and R&B converge. His mastery of words, interpretation, improvisation, phrasing and tone highlight the technical aspects of their sound without having to sacrifice its psychological depth–all while using us on melodic excursions of creative phrase. "SAANG, PAYNE!" . . . is really what people shouted back-in-the-day as soon as the teen-aged Clif ended up being a featured vocalist in his church choir. ìBRING ON PAYNE!î . . . is exactly how he's introduced these days.

Washington DC – National Museum of American History: John Bell 1860 Electoral Ticket

July 6th, 2013

A few nice Washington images I found:

Washington DC – National Museum of American History: John Bell 1860 Electoral Ticket
Washington
Image by wallyg
In 1860 the Democratic Party split over the issue of slavery. Northern Democrats nominated Stephen Douglas for president. His platform called for residents of each territory to decide whether to permit slavery. Southern Democrats nominated John C. Breckinridge and called for slavery’s expansion into the West. Members of the new Constitutional Party tried to avoid taking any controversial positions, and simply promised to maintain the Constitution, the Union, and the laws. Their nominee was John Bell. Lincoln, the Republican candidate, won the election by carrying the North, but received less than 40 percent of the national popular vote.

This Union Electoral Ticket for the state of Virginia’s fifteen electoral votes went to John Bell and his Vice Presidential candidate, Edward Everett. It was a gift to the Smithsonian of Ralph E. Becker in 1959.

Abraham Lincoln: An Extraordinary Life, was on exhibit in 2009 as part of the Smithsonian-wide celebration of the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln’s birth. The exhibition showcased more than 60 historical treasures associated with Lincoln’s life.

The National Museum of American History (NMAH), administered by the Smithsonian Institute, collects, preserves and displays American heritage in the areas of social, political, cultural, scientific and military history. The museum, which first opened in 1964 as the Museum of History and Technology, is located on the National Mall in one of the last structures designed by McKim, Mead & White. It was renamed in 1980, and closed for a 2-year, million renovation by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP from 2006 to 2008.

The Smithsonian Institution, an educational and research institute and associated museum complex, administered and funded by the government of the United States and by funds from its endowment, contributions, and profits from its shops and its magazines, was established in 1846. Although concentrated in Washington DC, its collection of over 136 million items is spread through 19 museums, a zoo, and nine research centers from New York to Panama.

Washington DC – National Museum of American History: America on the Move – Martinsburg, Indiana, 1939
Washington
Image by wallyg
This 36-passenger Dodge school bus, 1936 (body), 1939 (chassis), served a small consolidated school in Martinsburg, in rural south-central Indiana.

In neighborhoods like this, the introduction of school buses changed the character of the communities they served and the lives of the children who rode to school. Students who had once walked to a local, often one-room, schoolhouse now rode a bus to a larger consolidated school where they were taught in separate grades. Progressive educators viewed buses as a step toward modernizing rural education. By 1932, there were 63,000 school buses on the road.

In Martinsburg, Indiana, school administrators saw school buses as a way to give children access to better education, and to save money. Some parents objected; they liked the local schools and thought that consolidated schools would increase taxes. But in 1939, three small one-room schools closed, and their 75 students began to take buses to the Martinsburg School.

America on the Move, an ongoing exhibition, fills transportation hall’s nearly 26,000 square feet with 340 objects, and features 19 historic settings in chronological order from the coming of the railroad to a California town in 1876 to the role of the streetcar and the automobile in creating suburbs to the global economy of Los Angeles in 1999.
