The luscious greenery and fertile land were prime targets for immigrant farmers. On August 21, speculator Henry Willis was granted 2, acres 8. During the summer of , Willis sold his entire property to Jacob Funk. Jacob in return, partitioned his new purchase, reselling a part of it to his brother John. The thriving agricultural community that developed in the fertile bottomland along the banks of the Shenandoah River boasted scenic views of the Massanutten and Allegheny Mountains. During the 19th and 20th centuries, many residents worked for the railroad industry and at limestone quarries; after WW II, other industries came to Strasburg, including paper and auto parts manufacture. Today Strasburg boasts a growing service economy, museums, charming eateries, numerous antique stores and other shops.

Critics’ Picks by Billboard Staff July 10, , For as long as the Billboard Hot has existed, there have been all-female vocal groups gracing its ranks, from the early days of The Chantels and The Bobbettes in the late ’50s all the way up to Fifth Harmony and Little Mix in Over that six-decade span of iconic mainstream success, girl groups have often been dismissed, jeered at or all but written out of rock history. But as the years march on, the groups have endured — through their fashion, their cool, and most importantly, their songs. To honor that legacy, Billboard will be doing a week’s worth of girl group coverage, starting with our list of the greatest girl group songs of all-time — or at least of the rock era, with a quick shout-out to absent predecessors like the Andrews Sisters and The Chordettes — as decided by Billboard’s editorial staff. For a list of the biggest girl group hits of all-time as determined by their Billboard Hot chart success, click here. Before we get counting down, though, a word about how we defined the term “girl group.

Uber ignores security bug that makes its two-factor authentication useless The disk image was left on an unlisted but public Amazon Web Services storage server, without a password, open for anyone to download. Unprotected storage buckets have become a recurring theme in recent data leaks and exposures. In the past year alone, Accenture , Verizon , and Viacom , and several government departments , were all dinged by unsecured data. Chris Vickery, director of cyber risk research at security firm UpGuard, found the data and informed the government of the breach in October. The storage server was subsequently secured, though its owner remains unknown. The leak marks yet another exposure of classified government data. Since the Edward Snowden disclosures in , the agency made headlines last year when Harold Martin, an NSA contractor, was indicted for removing terabytes of secret data from the agency’s headquarters.

Rating Newest Oldest Best Answer: I dated a few Japanese guys and married one. I also have a lot of Japanese friends. This is what I learned as far as do’s and don’t: When dating someone you genuinely like, not let your first kiss be a french kiss and certainly do not french kiss in public. This makes you look very naughty. French kisses aren’t even shown on regular TV, Japanese call it a “porno kiss” because that is the only place they see couples doing such kisses and lets just say, sex immediately follows! If you are a guy, and drop your date off somewhere besides their front door, ALWAYS call to make sure she made it home safely. If you are a woman, you will expect this as a courtesy, not because the guy is totally in love with you and wants another date. A jerk is a jerk and a player is a player no matter what culture they are from.
