This week on The Best of Car Talk, how do you attract a guy who's whizzing by at 60 miles per hour? Stella is renting a highway billboard for a personal ad and, to make a questionable idea even worse, is turning to Tom and Ray for design help. Elsewhere, after having his brake pedal sink to the floor twice in stop-and-go traffic, Chris thinks it's time to either figure out what's wrong, or update his life insurance; deli salesman Frank may have to part with a couple of spiral cut hams to find out why his car is making noise; and, why does Mabel's Subaru sound like she's torturing a chihuahua when starts it? All this and more, this week on The Best of Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: July 4, 2015] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Magliozzi, Ray Magliozzi.

Once every four years, the Earth Alliance Naval Academy is included in a war game...or rather, the Wargame: On a distant frontier colony, cadets must repair, recommission, and crew a fleet of old, mothballed warships for a simulated fleet action against a group of seasoned veterans using top-of-the-line warships. After some meddling on the part of the Admiralty, many of the Academy's best are assigned to the oldest, smallest hulk in the Wargame, the unfortunately named corvette, Chihuahua. Thanks to a genius engineer, an Army veteran loaned to the Navy for the war game, and an unconventional captain, they make a new discovery which turns her into the most valuable warship in the fleet: the first ever Shieldclad warship. The crew abruptly finds itself center stage in a real combat action, however, when Earth is attacked by an unknown foe, and a lone squadron of these once-mothballed ships is the Alliance's only hope to respond.... 1.

The soldiers never explained to the government when an Indian was wronged but reported the misdeeds of the Indians. "I cannot think that we are useless, or God would not have created us." "I was born on the prairies where the wind blew free, and there was nothing to break the light of the sun." (Geronimo)The great Indian chief Geronimo was a prominent leader and medicine man from the Bedonkohe band of the Apache tribe. From 1850 to 1886 Geronimo joined with members of three other Chiricahua Apache bands - the Tchihende, the Tsokanende, and the Nednhi - to carry out numerous raids as well as resist the US and Mexican military campaigns in the northern Mexico states of Chihuahua and Sonora and in the southwestern American territories of New Mexico and Arizona. Geronimo's legendary raids and related combat actions were a part of the prolonged period of the Apache-United States conflict, which started with the American settlement in Apache lands following the end of the war with Mexico in 1848. This is his story.Geoffrey Giuliano is the author of 32 internationally best-selling books published by the biggest publishers in the world from 1984 till today.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Sonora is a state in northwestern Mexico with an area of 182,052 square kilometers, making it around the size of Syria. It is surrounded by the states of Baja California and the Sea of Cortez to the west, Chihuahua to the east, Sinaloa to the south, and Arizona to the north. The capital is Hermosillo, other important cities include Ciudad Obregón and Nogales. Although archeological evidence suggests that Sonora had permanent settlements as far back as 1500 B.C., the largest known indigenous groups were the Yaqui and the Mayo. They flourished around 1300 A.D. and established agricultural communities. Both groups were territorial and aggressively defended their communities against nomadic tribes who wandered throughout the region. The Yaqui inhabited the eastern part of Sonora near Mar de Cortés. The Mayo lived primarily in the southern part of the state and established an important cultural center in what is now the city of Guaymas.

The International Boundary and Water Commission (Spanish: Comisión Internacional de Límites y Aguas) is an international body created in 1889 by the United States and Mexico to administer the many boundary and water-rights treaties and agreements between the two nations. The organization was created as the International Boundary Commission by the Convention of 1889, and given its present name under the 1944 Treaty. Under these agreements, the IBWC has a U.S. section and a Mexican section, headquartered in the adjoining cities of El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua. The U.S. section is administered by the United States Department of State, the Mexican part by the Secretariat of Foreign Relations of Mexico.
On their return to New Mexico from El Paso after the 1680 Pueblo Revolt, the New Mexican settlers were confronted with continuous raids by hostile Indians tribes, disease and an inhospitable landscape. In spite of this, in the early and mid-eighteenth century, the New Mexicans went about their daily lives as best they could, as shown in original documents from the time. The documents show them making deals, traveling around the countryside and to and from El Paso and Mexico City, complaining about and arguing with each other, holding festivals, and making plans for the future of their children. It also shows them interacting with the presidio soldiers, the Franciscan friars and Inquisition officials, El Paso and Chihuahua merchants, the occasional Frenchman, and their Pueblo Indian allies. Because many of the documents include oral testimony, we are able to read what they had to say, sometimes angry, asking for help, or giving excuses for their behavior, as written down by a scribe at the time. This book includes fifty-four original handwritten documents from the early and mid-eighteenth century. Most of the original documents are located in the Spanish Archives of New Mexico, although some are from the Bancroft Library at the University of California at Berkeley, the Archivo General de la Nacion in Mexico City, and elsewhere. They were selected for their description of Spanish Colonial life, of interest to the many descendants of the characters that appear in them, and because they tell a good story. A translation and transcription of each document is included as well as a synopsis, background notes, and biographical notes. They can be considered a companion, in part, to Ralph Emerson Twitchell's 1914 two volumes, 'The Spanish Archives of New Mexico,' summarizing the documents of the Spanish Archives of New Mexico, now available in new editions from Sunstone Press. LINDA TIGGES, PhD, is a retired land planner. While working in the City of Santa Fe in the 1980s and 1990s, she assisted in drafting and staffing the City's Archaeological Review ordinance, prepared and worked on State Historic Preservation grants and prepared City publications on architectural history and Spanish Colonial Santa Fe. She is a New Mexico certified historian with the New Mexico Historic Preservation Division. Written material includes archival research on historic properties, published work on the Santa Fe presidio in 'All Trails Lead to Santa Fe, An Anthology Commemorating the 400th Anniversary of the Founding of Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1610,' from Sunstone Press, as well as articles for the 'New Mexico Historical Review' and the 'New Mexico Genealogical Society Journal.' Her special interest is early and mid-eighteenth century Spanish Colonial documents. She has bachelor's and master's degrees in history from Iowa State University and the University of North Carolina, at Chapel Hill, and a PhD in Administration from Iowa State University. J. RICHARD SALAZAR retired from the New Mexico State Records Center and Archives in 1996 as Director of the Archival Services Division of that agency. Since that time he has been conducting historical research for the various acequia associations of northern New Mexico in their attempt to determine their acequia priority dates. He has worked with New Mexico's archival documents, including the land grant records, for over forty years.
