Food boat arrives in city – Columbia-Greene Media: News
Had they succeeded, much of the territory west of the Appalachian Mountains might well have become French. But the army sent to secure French claims stopped first to quash rebellion in French colonial San Dominique (now Haiti), where it suffered grievous losses, mostly from yellow fever. With few options, the French Emperor Napoleon settled for selling the Louisiana Territory to the United States (rather than see it fall into English hands). The 20-year period covered by the book saw profound changes for the United States and for France. As Furstenberg notes, The United States had gone from a small group of states huddled between the Appalachians and the Atlantic coast to a continental power stretching across the Mississippi Valley to the Rocky Mountains. France had gone from monarchy, to republic and finally to empire. Wars had started, ended, and erupted again. Furstenberg opens a window into a lost world of glittering Philadelphian dinner parties, rough backwoodsmen speaking French and homesick emigres. Its a fascinating portrait of the diplomatic intrigue between France and England for power and position, with the United States displaying a disconcertingly astute aptitude for playing them off against each other. When the United States Spoke French is essential reading for understanding the complex relationship between France and the United States that, to this day, endures. Kevin J. Hamilton is a Seattle lawyer.

San Francisco’s Tech Boom Bleeding Chinese Small Businesses – New America Media
In stories that the city’s natives tell about what is happening, there is always a new landlord or a consortium of landowners scheming to evict long-term tenants from apartments or shops, to make room for tenants who can pay rents that are three or four hundred percent greater. The new landlords are not interested in making San Francisco a more Chinese city. Their interest is in making their buildings into homes for tenants who can pay big money. The irony is that as Chinese buyers acquire more property in San Francisco, it is often the Chinese American tenants who are taking a hit. In this new Chinese city of San Francisco, also a hipster city, one sees more white young people and fewer small French Valley Attorney Lawyer Chinese shops and shopkeepers that cater to working-class Chinese. Consider Clement Street in the city’s middle-class Richmond District.

‘When the United States Spoke French’: Five eminent Frenchmen come to the aid of a young America | Books | The Seattle Times
This year, theyre just doing pop-up markets. Also, they changed a whole rig, which means theyre sailing impeccably, he said. Most importantly for Schwartz, theyre sailing about 50 percent of the time. They sailed all the way across Lake Champlain, then motored the first leg of the river, and sailed all through the Hudson Valley. This time, were doing a little less of the promotional aspect, he said, less of the dog-and-pony show. Sailing the ship this year are Schwartz and crew members Meade Atkeson and James Malchow. Although they werent able to find a good docking location in New York City this year, they sailed down there anyway, as a show of solidarity, Schwartz said. While there, they were the subject of documentary filmmakers from French TV, who rented a helicopter and flew over them for a half-hour. Sailing back from New York, we had another glorious day, he said, and were able to achieve a high speed of 7.4 knots. They went from Nyack to Kingston and back to Nyack, then arrived at Cold Spring on July 4 and Beacon on July 6.
