This study investigates the effects of federal policy and budget changes during the Reagan years as well as the revenue strategies of governmental and private, nonprofit agencies in Stamford, Connecticut. Systematic examination of agency budgets and interviews with agency directors in 1982 found widespread anxiety about possible revenue decline, but few departures from traditional revenue strategies. In Stamford, federal changes produced revenue problems for only a few agencies, most of which went about “business as usual” and did not experience a budget crisis. This situation remained unchanged in late 1985.
Os gêneros Arachis, Stylosanthes e Aeschynomene, pertencentes, a tribo Aeschynomeneae, sao nodu-lados por varios tipos diferentes de rizóbios. Essas bactérias formam um grupo de inoculação alta-mente heterogêneo, normalmente conhecido como rizóbio tropical. Dois experimentos foram con-duzidos em casa de vegetação utilizando-se vasos de Leonard sob condições estéreis, para avaliação da faixa de especificidade hospedeira de rizóbio isolado de nódulos das raízes de plantas da tribo Aeschynomene, e da sua eficiência simbiótica. Testaram-se vinte estirpes de rizóbios isoladas de Arachis hypogaea (cv. BR 1), 5tylosanthes guyanensis e Aeschynomene americana cultivadas em amostras de solos da região nordeste do Brasil. as isolados usados como inoculantes provieram de plantas de caupi (Vigna unguic.ulata), siratro (Macropitilium atropurpureum) e amendoim (Arachis hypogaea). No segundo experimento vinte estirpes também foram testadas nas seguintes especies: A. hypogaea, S. guyanensis, A. americana, V. unguiculata e M. artropurpureum. Macropitilium atropurpureum foi capaz de nodular com todos os isolados testados, mas mostrou diferença na eficiência simbiótica. De outro lado, apenas oito isolados foram capazes de nodular o caupi. Esses resultados sugerem que isolados de rizóbios da tribo Aeschynomene apresentam diferenças quanto à faixa hospedeira...
Hugh Alexander, b. 1780 arrived in Niagara shortly after his birth. He attended school and later apprenticed as a clerk. In 1797 he was granted 200 acres of land in Bertie township and became a merchant and trader in Fort Erie. He was the owner of a sailing vessel, the Chippawa, which he used to transport goods in the area. The ship was lost and/or confiscated as a result of War of 1812 skirmishes on Lake Erie. By 1812 Hugh Alexander was in business together with his brother Ephraim. The Alexander’s storehouse, store and house were burned by the British military when they abandoned Fort Erie ahead of the invading American military in late May 1813. At the time of the burning, Hugh Alexander was engaged as a Lieutenant with the 3rd Lincoln Militia. Prior to this Hugh Alexander had established a second mercantile in Stamford, opposite the green. Misfortune was to strike at this location as well when the British military abandoned the whole of the Niagara area to the invading American forces and the Stamford location was looted. After the end of the hostilities Alexander went on to rebuild his storehouse in Fort Erie and to re-establish his store in Stamford. Hugh Alexander died on November 2, 1817 and is buried in the Stamford Presbyterian Cemetery.
