I’m going to start a new thread from now on. Whenever starting,I find it complicated to think of the title on the thread. Even if what kinds of title,it doesn’t matter for me,for it’s just that it’s in English.

I’ve put effort into expressing on America,being based on the book,アメリカ50州を読む,written by 浅井信雄,I’ve wanted to finish it as soon as possible,for there are lots of things which I’ve wanted to do on the English,lots of books to read,and plenty of things to express in English.

After finishing expressing on America,I’m going to read some books. It takes me a lot of time to finish reading them,so I’m afraid I can’t come here so often,at most twice a week.

When reading finishing them,I’m going to return,though no one may wait for me.

To my sorrow,my health has been failing as a result of being an old age. I’ve suffered from gout,to make matters worse,fluid has accumulated on my right knee,and I have a pain in my right knee,especially when going down the stairs. I may disappear suddenly one day.

I’ve expressed on America mainly at present. When finishing it,I’m going to devote myself to read a book,but I’ll make it a rule to come here to express myself in English at least twice a week.

As to reading science book,it used to be limited to express myself in English,but I've wanted to read it recently somehow.,

【The state of New Hampshire】

《There are few brilliance and few prominent people there. An article of superb is a scene on the water》

The political world in the state has often been confused,and it is hard to say the tax revenues are stable,and expenditure for education,or welfare is poor,so the situation is different from the invited companies. It isn’t desirable for the people in the state.

When looking at it on a map,the state faces Vermont across the Connecticut River. They resemble actually on the area,landform,the shape of the state,climate. The state has a nickname,the state of granite 花崗岩,and twin state,for it looks like Vermont.

The granite has been dug out each place in the state,and it is said the disposition of the people is boorish ぶっきらぼう,it’s the granite itsel. There are such a lot of hard strata 地層 in the state that it isn’t fittable for agriculture,so the state may
intend to be industrial very early

《There are few brilliance and few prominent people there. An article of superb is a scene on the water》

Its latitude is equivalent to the central part of Hokkaido prefecture,it is cool in summertime,and becomes a summer resort,and it has lots of snow in wintertime,so the skiing ground is bustling so much.

About 80 % of the whole area is covered with forest,and there are lots of glacial lake which were made in the ice sheet in ancient time. Some people say it resembles an ancient world. Adding it to five rivers,it is said every place is near from the water,so the tourists who look forward to seeing the natural view come to the state.

The ice sheet is the place which is covered with the ice in a wide area like the Greenland.

When establishing the state of New Hampshire,a single disgusting history happened. It’s the Pequot War which was a first systematic slaughter for the Native Indians. Colonizers attacked the Native Indian’s houses,and it is said …

…and it is said that they burnt the houses with no less than about five hundred native Indians and killed them. The book of アメリカの作り方 says so. Needless to say,a colony was built in the vacant lot. It seems that it’s a reality of expanding the colony.

As for the Native Indians,there is a contrast topic. Dartmouth college was established in Hannover at the central west of the state. Its education is proud of being high level,and the Native Indians are exempted from paying their fees so as to secur the chance of education for them.

As to the disposition of the people in the state,some people say they are so severe that they don’t mind shedding blood. They played an active role dauntlessly in the independent war,I’m not sure whether or not it has something to do with it,but there is a phrase on the license plate of a car in the state like the next.

It says live at will,or be dead. It’s the motto for the state. The state joined America in 1788 as the ninth state. It lacks something brilliant as a whole,and prominent people are scarce in the state.

Franklin Pierce is the 14th President who was from New Hampshire,and his nickname is anonymous leader. As to other well–known people,Daniel French who craved the statue of Lincoln at the Lincoln memorial in Washington D.C.and Alan Shepard who was the first astronaut in the world in 1961.

《The place where crimes of statesman and cultivated people have appeared》

The newspaper of U.S.A.today reported in 1994 that the governor in New Jersey was going to sign the bill that it forbids an illegal act of making an eligible voter abstain from voting by cash.

There was a rumor like the next in New Jersey. A member of Republican Party…

【The state of New Jersey】

《The place of crimes of statesmen and cultivated people have appeared》

Oh! I’ve made a mistake again,it’s not the rumor but a suspicion exactly.

A member of Republican Party gave a black eligibile voter cash on the street and suggested that it abstain from voting,the suspicion doesn’t cease. Actually there are plenty of the black who support the Democrtic Party.

The crimes of politicians stand out in New Jersey.

A scandal which was closely connected with a permitted gambling in casino in Atlantic City in 1976,or the corruption of アブスキャム in which several statesmen were arrested with a decoy investigation over the right on the countries which produce and export petroleum in Arabian countries.

In the corruption of アブスキャム,a Senator who was elected from the state was sentenced to imprisonment with a gambling,and it’s the first scandal in political history in the U.S.A.as Senator. A Labor Secretary who was from the state in the Reagan Government resigned in…

A Labor Secretary who was from the state in the Reagan Government resigned because of a corruption in 1985.

There is New York in the opposite shore of the Hudson River which is the northern west in the state,and Philadelphia in the opposite bank of the Delaware River which is the southern west in the state.

When driving on a turnpike connected with the two big cities,the author said he felt as if every city which got caught between the big cities had been colonies which were squeezed the money out of them. He said the cities looked weak.

The turnpike is a highway charged for a fee.

The people who return from New York cross the Bridge of George Washington on the Hudson River or go under a route of tunnel at a riverbed and live in New Jersey on the opposite shore,but each of them always think of New York.

《The place where crimes of statesmen and cultivated people appear.》

As to one of those cities,Newark,its population is about two hundred seventy thousand in 1990,according to the national census,and it’s the biggest city in the state,the ratio of the black is at the high rate of 58.5 %.

After the great riot by the black in 1967,the white of upper class and of middle class escaped from the biggest city,and the poor black came there,so the place has started to collapse as city.

The author said like that,but I’m afraid his remarks are filled with prejudice. I’m sure being lots of the black doesn’t always make the place collapse as city.

Some of big companies like the biggest insurance company in the U.S.A. Prudential,have their headquarters there,and they have employed white–color workers,and it manages to prevent the city from decreasing the population.

The ratio of the black is 13.4 % in the state,so the ratio of the black in Newark is very high.

In the assembly of the state of New Jersey,with the background of the black power,a black chairperson was elected for the first time in America.

Some Japanese companies which hate New York because it’s crowded,but want to be near the place because it’s filled with information move their footholds to the state.

After crossing the Hudson River we can reach a town called Fort Lee,where there have been more than five thousand of the Japanese. There is even a junior high school of which class the Japanese account for 30 %. It seems that both of the school and the local welcome the Japanese. Both the school and the people are understanding ones.

…and is symbolic that a group of magnificent hotels which line up in the coast of which length is about 10 kilometers. A promenade of a board floor on the shore called Broad Walk is an attraction,and the light footsteps of the ones who take a walk don’t cease there.

Atlantic City used to be the most popular resort area in the U.S.A.in 1890s,and it grew to the city which depended on sightseeing completely in the beginning of the 20th century,but with development of roads and air routes,the people went to each place in the whole America for sightseeing,so the place started to decline naturally.

After the World War Ⅱ,a beauty contest for the Miss.America was held September every year,and the contest alone was paid attention from the people in the world.

Recognizing gambling in casino officially was decided by the local referendum with expectation of revival for amusement area in 1976.

One of main industries in the state is sightseeing. Its profit reached no less than $ 11.1 billion in the statistics in 1993,and the casino industry accounted for one–fourth in the profit,and it exceeded the one in Las Vegas,

However,corruption over the management on the casino hasn’t ceased,moreover buying and selling the drug,and prostitution increased,and the area of living moved to the suburbs,as a result the population of the city tends to decrease. The casino industry has brought not only a light but a shadow.

Cape May is a health resort in the southern shore,and it’s famous for that several Presidents like Lincoln used to take advantage of it as summer resort.

Bayonne is the city which produces petroleum and is in the northern east in the state,and an oil refinery was established in 1876,it’s probably the earliest oil refinery in the world.

Then they adopted a wooden barrel as container for the petroleum,so the barrel becomes an unit for the petroleum,and 1 barrel becomes 42 gallon. If carrying away a 50 gallon barrel with a coach,the barrel shook and spilt,and when reaching the market,it decreased to 42 gallon,so it’s a bad number to leave off. It’s commonly believed.

Princeton in the western is the place where there is the famous Princeton university. Einstein used to serve as professor in the research institute which is attached to the university.

It is said that the best cultivated people live in the town,and their intelligence has been made use of America,and the world,but it has never been taken advantage of for the local,their interest has never turned to the problem in the state. I’m sure it’s useless.

…and English king’s family possessed a part of the state.

Through the independent war,the area of New Jersey adopted the first constitution in the state after two days of the Declaration of Independence in 1776,and joined the United States as the third state which ratified the constitution in the United States in 1787.

Woodrow Wilson who was the 28th President was born in Virginia,but led his life almost in the state after he came of age. He transcended the isolationism and took part in the World War Ⅰ,and made a great contribution to the end of the World War Ⅰ,and he received a Nobel Peace Prize for his deed.

As to the prominent people in the state,Norman Mailer who is an author and his work is the Naked and Dead,Frank Sinatra and Paul Simon who were singers.

It seems that there's no feature on the political tendency.

Georgea O’keeffe who was a pioneer in the modern painting in America,and it is said most of the American love,respect and are proud of her,and she used to learn Japanese art,and enthusiastic admirer for O’keeffe has increased in Japan,but her life for creation seems to be the New Mexico itself.

She was born in Wisconsin in 1887,and she had been active in New York for a long time,but after her husband’s death in 1946,she moved to New Mexico.

She loved violent nature terribly,the violent nature which is the same quality with herself who would never lose her independent spirit,according to a translator for her biography.

It is said that the sterile land,exorbitant vastness,raging storm,transparent and strong light and blue sky in New Mexico infused life force into her art,and purified both her life and her works,but there are lots of her painting which pursued life and death of which subject was…

…but there are plenty of her paintings which pursued life and death of which subjects were a desert or a skeleton.

The land of 85 % in New Mexico faces to the south of the Ricky Mt. and it’s a highland and is 1.200 meters above sea level. When being fine,the land is exposed to the sunshine of become red–hot. It’s a severe environment.

The place is a foothold for not only the modern art in America,but the one for Spanish,Indian,and Mexican,and we can watch their main works at the art museum at the New Mexico University in Albuquerque which is the biggest city in the state.

I’m going to show you two topics which are related to Japan.

The Los Alamos research institution of which aim was researching atomic power developed the first atomic bomb,and succeeded in the experiment in the desert of the state.

While the World War Ⅱ made New Mexico active on economy,lots of the people in the state who took part in the World War went to the Phillippine front,and became Japanese captives there,and were forced to do the death parade which is notorious in the U.S.A.

In 1942,the American who became captives were forced to move to a concentration camp by foot for a long time,after that lots of them were dead. It’s the death parade.

Cultures of minorities have grown up there,for most of the residents used to be Hispanic or Native Indian alone until about a hundred years ago,and the ratio for the minority is still high at present.

The Hisapanic accounts for 38.2 % in the population of the state,and Native Indian 8.9 %,according to the national census,and if adding two of them,it’s 47.1%. As to the ratio of the minority,it’s the most in the whole America. Not only the English but the Spanish are useful in New Mexico.

The history on residence of the human being in the place dates back to ten thousand years ago,and the trace to support its theory is recognized in a cave near Albuquerque. Varied Native Indians seemed to live there,especially Pueblo,Navaho,and Apache who was good at fighting are famous. A settlement for the Native Indians have still been established each place in the state at present.

It is said the language of Navaho Indian is extremely hard to understand. At the time of the Cold War,America made use of the language of Navaho for a cipher code 暗号通信,it seemed to be effective without being deciphering.

The Spanish arrived there in the middle of the 16th century,and they built the first settlement for the white on the shore of the Rio Grande,but after 1821,the flag of Mexico which was independent from Spain had fluttered in that area for 25 years.

A war broke out between Mexico and America in 1846,after two years Mexico was defeated,and the greater part of the northern area belonged to America then,in addition,America also bought the southern area with the Gadsden Purchase in 1953,but it was 1912 when the place becomes the state formally.

I’m going to express on the Gadsden Purchase. A businessman called James Gadsden brought a negotiation of buying over the southern part on the present New Mexico and the present Arizona from the Mexican government as special envoy for the Pierce President.

The capital of the state is Santa Fe,and the highway of Santa Fe which connected the place with independence in Missouri has left behind a reputation in the history of development on the central west area.

It was in 1821 when the place becomes American territory that the highway was opened to traffic. Then the American were permitted to go into Santa Fe.

Its full length was 1.300 kilometers,a caravan of covered wagon made a round trip,and it took a few months. American merchants carried away simple industrial products from the eastern area,and came back with silver wares,and furs. It was repeated.

Billy the Kid was the synonymous with lawless in the Western Area. His real name was Bonney William,and he was born in New York,and moved to New Jersey. He joined a struggle for power and killed a sheriff. It is said he killed no less than 21 people in his short lifetime of 21 years.

The southern area in the state,Carlsbad is an important producing area for kali,and western area in Gallup,and Grants,uranium is produced. Petroleum is found in the southern east area,Lovington,and Hobs.

Above all the spread of the petroleum attracted tourists to the state which has an unique landscape and tradition.

After the World War Ⅱ,with the spread of air–conditioner or refrigerator,the surrounding for the residence has improved,and plenty of people has come in the state,and the population has increased.

Moreover the Cold War urged the production of military affairs,high technology,aerospace,and photochemistry,and the state used to form a corner of the brilliant sunbelt area,but with the collapse of the Cold War,the state is at the turning point.

The location on the American industry has changed as the time passed,and there has been a group of industry which developed so much in the southern place from the north latitude 37 ゜in America. We call it the sunbelt.
