The Créole was launched on 8 June 1940 at Le Havre. To avoid capture by the advancing German armies, the Créole, still unfinished, was towed to La Pallice, and on 18 June she was taken in tow from La Pallice to Swansea. On 1 July 1940, she was taken in British custody during Operation Catapult.
The Créole was completed after the war and commissioned in the French Navy on 1 April 1949. Her silhouette was departed from the pre-war design, with a modified sail and a schnorchel.
Welcome To Haiti: Creole 101 is the fifth studio album released by Haitian rapper Wyclef Jean. The album was released on October 5, 2004. The album is a contrast to Jean's previous albums, as many of the track are Caribbean-influenced and sung in different languages. President was the only single released from the album. The album's track listing differs between the United States and Europe. The album's lyrics have political themes.
A city is a large and permanent human settlement. Although there is no agreement on how a city is distinguished from a town in general English language meanings, many cities have a particular administrative, legal, or historical status based on local law.
Cities generally have complex systems for sanitation, utilities, land usage, housing, and transportation. The concentration of development greatly facilitates interaction between people and businesses, benefiting both parties in the process, but it also presents challenges to managing urban growth.
There is not enough evidence to assert what conditions gave rise to the first cities. Some theorists have speculated on what they consider suitable pre-conditions and basic mechanisms that might have been important driving forces.
Legally, a city in Washington can be described primarily by its class. There are five classes of cities in Washington:
10 first class cities
9 second class cities
1 unclassified city
192 code cities
First class cities are cities with a population over 10,000 at the time of reorganization and operating under a home rule charter. They are permitted to perform any function specifically granted them by Title 35 RCW (Revised Code of Washington). Among them are Seattle, Tacoma, Spokane, Vancouver, and Yakima.
Second class cities are cities with a population over 1,500 at the time of reorganization and operating without a home rule charter. Like first class cities, they are permitted to perform any function specifically granted them by Title 35 RCW. Among them are Port Orchard, Wapato, and Colville.
Towns are municipalities with a population of under 1,500 at the time of reorganization. Towns are not authorized to operate under a charter. Like the previously listed cities, they are permitted to perform any function specifically granted them by Title 35 RCW. Among them are Steilacoom, Friday Harbor, Eatonville, and Waterville. In 1994, the legislature made 1,500 the minimum population required to incorporate.
Texas has a total of 254 counties, by far the largest number of counties of any state.
Each county is run by a five-member Commissioners' Court consisting of four commissioners elected from single-member districts (called commissioner precincts) and a county judge elected at-large. The county judge does not have authority to veto a decision of the commissioners court; the judge votes along with the commissioners (being the tie-breaker in close calls). In smaller counties, the county judge actually does perform judicial duties, but in larger counties the judge's role is limited to serving on the commissioners court and certifying elections. Certain officials, such as the sheriff and tax collector, are elected separately by the voters, but the commissioners court determines their office budgets, and sets overall county policy. All county elections are partisan, and commissioner precincts are redistricted after each ten year Census both to equalize the voting power in each and in consideration of the political party preferences of the voters in each.
