    Full Text Available The authors of the paper examine the historical and geographical aspects of the emergence, development and decline of Senj’s steam-shipping as the crucial element of the overall social and economic progress of Senj at the turn of the 20th century. At the beginning of the 19th century, owing to the special city autonomy and the modern road connections, the Port of Senj was one of the most important maritime trading centres of the Croatian Littoral and the entire Adriatic in general, and its residents were important participants in social, economic and political turmoil of that time. Steam-shipping development has surely provided the residents of Senj a good market position in the times of demanding economic circumstances. The work also analyses important causes of weakening of Senj's economy, which during the period of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia isolated the city from the dominant maritime and economic processes, thus heavily influencing the city's socioeconomic situation.

    Full Text Available During the post-war restoration the work on social insurance in river transport was intensified. It were trade unions including councils of social insurance that dealt with social problems in the Volga Steamship Lines. Trade unions exercised control over the budget of social insurance, over labor safety, etc. In the Middle Volga Steamship Line (SVRP 15 councils for social insurance functioned. They included 140 insurance agents. Their task was to decrease incidence, traumatism, and also to improve the conditions of work and life of river transport workers. Tasks of councils of a social insurance included systematic supervision over a sanitary condition of shops and territories of the industrial enterprises of the steamship line. Financial support was allocated to families of veterans with many children and families in need. Insurance delegates together with a doctor of the health center in workshops registered workers needing additional food for health reasons. Insurance delegates gave social help to patients at home and in hospital. After the end of the war comprehensive plans of improving actions were put through. Financial and food position of river transport workers improved. However in 1946 in SVRP there was a small growth of incidence again. Those who needed treatment, and also the best workers were provided with permits in sanatorium. Managements of Volga Steamship lines showed care of children of river transport workers. During thewinter period camps were decorated with New Year trees, in summer – rest was arranged. On the accounting of the trade-union organizations of the Middle Volga basin families of the lost soldiers, the military personnel, disabled veterans and demobilized consisted. As for labor protection, that, despite increase in allocations for safety measures and labor protection in 1946 at the SVRP enterprises occurred increase in accidents. So, all efforts were directed on further improvement of financial and social

    Since the conversion from sailing ships to steamships at the end of the 18th century, ships emit large amounts of sulfur, nitrogen oxides and soot into the air. Environment, passengers and residents of port cities constantly are exposed to health hazards. The conversion to environmentally friendly propulsion technology at the maritime shipping as well as the inland waterway transport is a tough process.

    The genesis, and even more the growth, of the international banana industry is intimately bound up with the development of steamships (from 1850 onwards) and with the spread of railway construction around the world. The coming of steam, which ensured consistent and swifter passage from the Caribbean and Central America to the United States, and later to Europe, meant that bananas could be delivered in good condition rather than rotten, as had happened in earlier days. Later, when refrigerated...

    Assuming that very often a long transport route from the factory of the manufacturer to the provided site has to be reckoned with, in general only transport with a ship is possible. As each site is only called by a certain steamship line, at a very early stage of planning the nuclear power plant the possibilities and capacities of the lines and means of transportation under discussion should be investigated. In planning the unloading equipment at the site, due consideration should be given to the fact that at a later time this equipment should also be suitable for the transport of heavy components and spent fuel assemblies.

    2002-01-01

    Full Text Available In July, 1865, William Buck Dana began to publish the Commercial and Financial Chronicle, in New York City. The Chronicle took for its model The Economist of London. Dana’s recognition of the importance of the telegraph, steam-ships and railroads as new means of conveying accurate and current information for the conduct of domestic and global business were crucial in the rise of his paper to preeminence among American commercial publications. Constant efforts to optimize the use of capital, maximize operational efficiency, stay abreast of and employ technological advances, and add useful features enlarged its value and success. These qualities and Dana’s singular attunement to the temper of his times and his readers assured that the Chronicle's primacy would linger long after his death in 1910.

  5. The Fujitsuru Mystery: Translocal Xiamen, Japanese Expansionism, and the Asian Cocaine Trade, 1900-1937

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Peter Thilly

    2017-12-01

    Full Text Available This article examines the Asian cocaine trade of the early twentieth century. It argues that the distribution of cocaine into Asian colonial ports was controlled by people from southeastern China who took advantage of a convergence of factors: consumer markets in India and Southeast Asia, shifting political winds surrounding drug use, the rise of Japan, and the translocal nature of southern Fujianese society. Xiamen was not only a port but also the hub of a society that was omnipresent in the maritime world of early twentieth-century Asia: natives of southern Fujian resided in Calcutta, Singapore, Rangoon, Manila, and Kobe, constituting a huge percentage of the crew and passengers of the steamships that connected those places. The implications of this story are relevant to two important themes of this special issue: the history of control and evasion in maritime Asia, and, relatedly, the ways in which states sought to extend their jurisdiction over the seas. Fujianese cocaine smugglers saw an opportunity when colonial governments banned cocaine imports, and took advantage of their place within the Japanese imperial sphere to acquire drugs and penetrate colonial markets. The evidence presented here thus highlights the place of opportunism and entrepreneurialism within the wider history of state efforts to control trade.

  6. A.E. Nordenski and the auroral oval

    Science.gov (United States)

    Nygrén, Tuomo; Silén, Johan

    In 1857, Adold Erik Nordenskiöld (1832-1901), a Finnish geographer and mineralogist, was forced to withdraw from his position at the University of Helsinki because of a conflict with the czarist officials in Finland. He then moved to Sweden, where he became one of the most celebrated explorers of his time. Most famous of his polar expeditions was the discovery of the Northeast Passage. Nordenskiöld made his voyage in the wooden steamship Vega in 1878-79.Vega started its voyage on June 22, 1878, and was directed in a course around Scandinavia and along the Siberian coast toward Bering Strait. Nordenskiöld's plan was to reach the Pacific Ocean during the summer months, but this was hindered by unfavorable ice conditions. At the end of September the sea was blocked by ice fields, and the Vega had to pass the winter on the northern coast of the Chukchi Peninsula (67°4‧49″N, 173°23‧2″W)—exasperatingly close to the open waters of Bering Strait. The ship could not set sail any sooner than the following July when the sea was free again. After visiting Japan, China, and Ceylon, the Vega passed through the Suez Canal and finally, on April 24, 1880, arrived at Stockholm.

  7. Navy Hospital ships in history

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Sougat Ray

    2017-01-01

    Full Text Available Hospital ships are operated by the Naval forces in or near war zones to provide medical assistance to the wounded personnel of all nationalities and not be used for any military purpose. Hospital ships possibly existed in ancient times and the Athenian Navy had a ship named Therapia. However, it was only during the 17th century that it became a common practice for the naval squadrons to be accompanied by large ships with the facilities of carrying the wounded after each engagement. In 1860, the steamships HMS Melbourne and HMS Mauritius were equipped with genuine medical facilities. They were manned by the Medical Staff Corps and provided services to the British expedition to China. During the World War I and World War II, passenger ships were converted for use as hospital ships and were started to be used on a massive scale. RMS Aquitania and HMHS Britannic were two famous examples of hospital ships used extensively. Modern US hospital ships USNS Mercy and USNS Comfort are operated by Military Sealift Command of the US Navy. Their primary mission is to provide emergency on-site care for US combatant forces deployed in war or other operations.

    2016-05-01

    Full Text Available La valle del Nilo, per la pluralità delle sue vicende storico-culturali e per l’immagine di cui fruisce a livello planetario, si è manifestata nel tempo anche come suggestivo attrattore per la rappresentazione cinematografica, offrendo  meravigliosi scenari, sia dal punto di vista dell’ambiente naturale, sia dal punto divista dell’ambiente antropico. Questo grande fiume, così come lo chiamavano gli antichi egizi, ha fatto da cornice, tra gli altri, alla famosa opera filmica Assassinio sul Nilo, tratto dal più celebre dei romanzi di Agatha Christie. Un giallo ambientato a bordo dello Steam Ship Sudan, un battello fluviale che ancora oggi costituisce un must per tutti i turisti che prenotano una crociera sul Nilo. Nell’ambito di un progetto volto a promuovere il cineturismo ho ritenuto, perciò, opportuno proporre l’istituzione e l’attivazione di un Parco Cine-Letterario dedicato al romanzo-film della scrittrice britannica.   The Nile valley, with its plurality of its cultural and historical events and reputation worldwide, has become over the course of time an important attraction for film performances, offering spectacular scenarios, both from a natural and anthropic environment point of view. This Big River, named by ancient Egyptians, has provided the set for many films including Death on the Nile, based on the Agatha Christie mystery novel of the same name. It is a crime fiction that takes place aboard the Steam Ship Sudan, a fluvial steamship which is still a must for all the tourists who want to cruise the Nile. As a part of a project that intends to promote the movie-tourism, I believe it is appropriate to propose the institution and the activation of a Cine-Literary Park dedicated to the novel-film of the famous British writer.

    Full Text Available Through the study of one case in particular this article wishes to contribute to adding to the knowledge concerning the importation of printed music in Spain from 1868 to 1892. The case in point refers to the commercial relations that existed during the above period between the German Editorial, Peters, and certain Spanish editors then in business. The material in question consists of nineteen documents -sixteen letters, two order lists and a steamship dispatch certificate- addressed mostly to Peters by five editors and a Spanish musical association, all of which are currently conserved in a well known Leipzig Archive: the Sächsisches Staatsarchiv Leipzig. Reading and analyzing the said documents introduces us to subject matter which, although it has been studied before, enshrouds many unanswered questions: through what channels was foreign music introduced, what means of payment were employed and what manner of repertory was requested? The answer to these questions will give us an idea of the tastes prevalent during that period as well as the commercial outlets utilized, etc.Este artículo pretende ser una aportación al mejor conocimiento de la importación de música impresa en España entre 1868 y 1892 a través de un caso concreto: la relación comercial que existió durante el periodo mencionado entre la editorial alemana Peters y algunos de los editores españoles entonces activos. El material tomado como base está formado por diecinueve documentos —esto es, dieciséis cartas, dos listas de pedido y un resguardo de envío en barco de vapor—, dirigidos en su mayoría a Peters por cinco editores y una asociación musical españoles que se conservan, en la actualidad, en un conocido archivo de Leipzig: el Sächsisches Staatsarchiv Leipzig. A través de la lectura y análisis de dichos documentos nos acercamos a un fenómeno que, aunque conocido y estudiado, todavía encierra diversos interrogantes: cuáles eran las vías de suministro

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Su Lin Lewis

    2012-10-01

    Full Text Available From the mid-19th century, vast improvements in steamship and communication technology created an interlinked network of port-cities in the Indian Ocean and maritime Asia. Though Rangoon and Penang had starkly different relationships to colonial rule, they shared a lineage as multi-ethnic ports where various communities had existed side-by-side for centuries. The advent of the Victorian era fostered new class and racial divisions between them, yet also created a new feuilleton culture in the port-city with the mushrooming of newspapers, books, and a new reading public. Diverse ethnic and linguistic communities sought platforms to articulate their concerns and inform themselves of the affairs of the world, and their place within it. Burmese in Rangoon, imbued with a renewed sense of cultural pride, absorbed the rising tide of anticolonialism nationalism echoing throughout the world. Penangites transformed their society using the liberal, cosmopolitan tenants of imperial citizenship to make political and cultural claims for a multi-ethnic society. The vibrant, outward-looking atmosphere of the colonial port-city as a node of information and cultural exchange made Penang and Rangoon the intellectual staging grounds for new visions of the nation.À compter du milieu du xixe siècle, d’importantes améliorations dans la navigation à vapeur et les technologies des communications ont créé un réseau de villes portuaires dans l’Océan indien et l’Asie maritime. Même si Rangoon et Penang avaient des relations divergentes avec la puissance coloniale, elles participaient d’un type identique comme ports où cohabitaient depuis des siècles des communautés d’ethnies différentes. L’ère victorienne conduisit à de nouvelles divisions sociales et ethniques, mais suscita dans la ville portuaire une nouvelle culture littéraire avec le foisonnement des journaux, des livres et un nouveau lectorat.

  12. Connecting the New World. Nets, mobility and progress in the Age of Alexander von Humboldt

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Moritz von Brescius

    2012-12-01

    Beschleunigung“ analytisch verbunden werden, da diese Faktoren eine zentrale Rolle für die „Verwandlung der Welt“ im 19. Jahrhundert spielten. Abstract This article explores the link between the profound technological transformations of the nineteenth century and the life and work of the Prussian scholar Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859. It analyses how Humboldt sought to appropriate the revolutionary new communication and transportation technologies of the time in order to integrate the American continent into global networks of commercial, intellectual and material exchange. Recent scholarship on Humboldt’s expedition to the New World (1799-1804 has claimed that his descriptions of tropical landscapes opened up South America to a range of „transformative interventions“ (Pratt by European capitalists and investors. These studies, however, have not analysed the motivations underlying Humboldt’s support for such intrusions into nature. Furthermore, they have not explored the role that such projects played in shaping Humboldt’s understanding of the forces behind the progress of societies. To comprehend Humboldt’s approval for human interventions in America’s natural world, this study first explores the role that eighteenth-century theories of progress and the notion of geographical determinism played in shaping his conception of civilisational development. It will look at concrete examples of transformative interventions in the American hemisphere that were actively proposed by Humboldt and intended to overcome natural obstacles to human interaction. These were the use of steamships, electric telegraphy, railroads and large-scale canals that together enabled global trade and communication to occur at an unprecedented pace. All these contemporary innovations will be linked to the four motifs of nets, mobility, progress and acceleration, which were driving forces behind the „transformation of the world“ that took place in the course of the nineteenth century.
