National Forests in Mississippi

De Soto National Forest, named for 16th-century explorer Hernando de Soto, is 518,587 acres (810 sq mi; 2,099 km2) of pine forests in southern Mississippi. It is one of the most important protected areas for the biological diversity of the Gulf Coast ecoregion of North America.[2] It is a nationally important site for protection of longleaf pine savannas, pine flatwoods, and longleaf pine forests. More than 90 percent of this ecosystem type has been lost in the United States.[3][4] The wet pine savannas support rare and endangered plant and animal species, such as the orchid Calopogon multiflorus, gopher frogs, and gopher tortoises. These habitats also have large numbers of carnivorous plants, particularly pitcher plants;[5] Buttercup Flats has an international reputation in this regard.[6]


This National Forest also offers year-round opportunities for outdoor activities including camping, canoeing, bird-watching, photography, hunting, fishing, and more. There are two nationally significant wilderness areas within DeSoto: Black Creek Wilderness and Leaf River Wilderness. Black Creek is a popular stream for canoeing, camping, and fishing, and is Mississippi’s only designated National Wild and Scenic River. Two National Recreational Trails, the Black Creek Trail and Tuxachanie Trail, offer more than 60 miles (96.6 km) of hiking opportunities.

The forest is headquartered in Jackson, as are all six National Forests in Mississippi. The local ranger district office is in Wiggins, which is surrounded by the National Forest on three sides: north, east, and south.
De Soto National Forest is located between Hattiesburg and Gulfport, and can be easily accessed by U.S. Highway 49 and U.S. Highway 98. It lies in parts of ten counties. In descending order of land area they are Perry

Charlton Park, Wiltshire

Charlton Park House

Charlton Park is a country house and estate in Wiltshire, England, 2 miles (3.2 km) northeast of the town of Malmesbury. Charlton Park House is a Grade I listed building and a leading example of the prodigy house.[1]
Malmesbury Abbey held Charlton manor from before 1086[2] until the Dissolution. The house was begun in the 1560s by Henry Knyvett, whose wife Elizabeth Stumpe had inherited the manor. In 1598 the manor passed to their daughter Catherine, wife of Thomas Howard, who was created Earl of Suffolk in 1603, and the estate continues to be the seat of the earls.[3]
Enlargement and alteration of the house, including the addition of the second floor and stair turrets, was completed in 1607. John Dryden wrote Annus Mirabilis while staying at the house in 1667.[3]
Major alterations were made in the 1770s by Matthew Brettingham the Younger for Henry Howard, 12th Earl of Suffolk, with the rebuilding of the south front, additional stair turrets, and the roofing-over of the central courtyard to make a large domed hall; the interior was unfinished on Henry’s death in 1779 and was not completed until the early 20th century.[3] Brettingham probably also built Andover House, some 150 metres north of the main house, with its estate offices and stables.[4][5]
The house was converted into apartments in 1975. The current earl, Michael Howard, 21st Earl of Suffolk, owns the park and the surrounding agricultural estate.[6] The park hosts corporate events and, since 2007, the annual Womad Charlton Park music festival.[7]
The small village of Charlton is immediately to the east of the estate. The civil parish of Charlton encompasses the village and the estate.

Bubbierasco is a red Italian wine grape variety that is grown in the province of Cuneo in the Piedmont wine region of northwest Italy. The grape is a natural crossing of the Nebbiolo grape, famous for the red wines of Barolo and Barbaresco, and Bianchetta di Saluzzo, a white grape variety that has been historically grown around the town of Saluzzo.[1]

History and relationship to other grapes[edit]

Nebbiolo, one of the parent varieties of Bubbierasco.

Ampelographers believe that Bubbierasco likely originated around the town of Saluzzo, in the Cuneo province, where its two parent varieties, Bianchetta di Saluzzo and Nebbiolo, have both been grown. In the early 21st century, DNA analysis showed that Bubbierasco was likely a natural crossing of the white Bianchetta and red Nebbiolo varieties.[1]
Through its parent-offspring relationship with Nebbiolo, Bubbierasco is a half-sibling of several Piemontese wine grape varieties including: Vespolina, Brugnola, Freisa, Nebbiolo rosé, Negretta, Neretto di Bairo and Rossola nera.[2]
Wine regions[edit]

The province of Cuneo where Bubbierasco is cultivated.

Today Bubbierasco is almost exclusively cultivated in the province of Cuneo in Piedmont with most plantings found in the Val Bronda region near Saluzzo.[1]
Currently, the Vitis International Variety Catalogue (VIVC) recognizes no official synonyms for Bubbierasco.[3]

Después perdimos con Estados Unidos porque sabíamos que no podíamos ganarle y volvimos a enfrentar a Francia por la medalla. Nadie daba nada por nosotros.

Desde entonces estoy convencido que deportivamente los uruguayos tenemos una idiosincrasia muy particular. Cuando no tenemos chance, cuando no somos favoritos, cuando todos creen que vamos a perder, sacamos a relucir algo muy especial que nos lleva a lograr hazañas que quedan en la historia.

The military reservation was established in 1791 on about 28 acres (110,000 m2) at the tip of Greenleaf Point. Major Pierre (Peter) Charles L’Enfant included it in his plans for Washington, the Federal City, as a major site for the defense of the capital.[1]
An arsenal first occupied the site and defenses were built in 1794. The fortifications did not halt the invading British in 1814. Soldiers at the arsenal evacuated north with as much gunpowder as they could carry, hiding the rest in a well as the British soldiers came up the Potomac from burning t
