On this date, September 18, 1792, the Second Civil Commission, comprising Léger-Félicité Sonthonax, Polvérel, and Ailhaud, arrived in Cap-Français to execute the law of 4 April which was to restore order in the colony
Saint-Dominique was the richest French colony, because it was the center from where half of the world's sugar was produced and this was achieved with heavy exploitation of African slaves imported from Africa. Its history is inextricably linked to Haiti's colonial past and struggle for independence. In 1791, Cap-Haïtien was captured by Toussaint L'Ouverture, the leader of the slave rebellion and became the center of slave uprisings.
The full moons of September and October are called by the name 'Harvest Moon'. It is the full moon that occurs closest to the date of the autumn equinox in the Northern Hemisphere, which marks the beginning of fall in the Northern Hemisphere. During this time, the full-looking moon shines from dusk until dawn because the path of the sun, moon, and earth makes a narrow angle with the horizon at sunset. The moon officially turns full when it reaches the spot opposite to the sun. Although, full-looking harvest moon is not always a supermoon, but it is no ordinary full moon; it behaves in a special way. It is special because during the months around the autumn equinox, days close to the full moon, the time of moonrise becomes very close to the sunset time for several evenings in a row and there is an abundance of bright moonlight early in the evening. It shines brighter and more golden than during normal full moons and there is very little darkness between sunset and moonrise. The rising and setting moon looks bigger than we see it high in the sky. In other times of the year, on an average, the moon rises 50 minutes after the sunset. But, on September and October evenings, the moon rises 15 to 35 minutes later of the sunset depending upon the latitude of the location-- it rises only around 30 minutes in the United States and even less in Canada.

"South-South Cooperation (SSC)" is a term to describe the exchange of resources, technology, and knowledge between developing countries themselves, with active participation from public- and private-sector institutions, non-governmental organizations and individuals. Such countries are also known as countries of the Global South. The Global North is comprised of North America, Western Europe followed by the developed countries of East Asia, whereas the Global South encompasses Africa, Latin America, and the developing economies of Asia and the Middle East. SSC can take place on a bilateral, regional, subregional or interregional basis. It emphasizes horizontal and mutual cooperation than vertical donor-recipient approach to aid giving. With the first growth of the developing countries, SSC has more responsibility to deliver towards the future of international development. The North with one-fifth of the world population controls over four fifths of the global world economy.
When you are looking for a new car deal, you should keep in mind that timing can have a big impact on your decision. A change in time can save you money, according to car-buying experts. Getting a good deal on a new or used car often depends on the time of year you buy it. Most show rooms remain quieter on weekdays. On Friday, they remain keen to meet their weekly targets and it could be a good day to meet them. Make your offer later in the day.
The time around Labor Day when new models jostle for space on dealers' lots, the outgoing models could be the target of bargain hunters. Bank holidays are traditionally a time for getting some great deals on new cars and Boxing Day is an excellent example of this. The beginning of a month may not be a good time for buying a new car and for the very same reason you should buy a car at the end of the month when even dealers remain under pressure to meet monthly targets. Historical statistics say, springtime is not the best time to buy a new car. Because it is the time when the winter weather clears and people come out with pockets full of tax refund checks.
On Wednesday, April 6, 2016, at the Hotel Montana, in the presence of the Ambassador of France, Elisabeth Béton Délègue, Haiti launched its first indigenous online teaching platform THESS (Hybrid Technology for Education, Science and Knowledge). This program has been developed by the "École Supérieure d'Infotronique d'Haïti" with an objective to increase youth employment opportunity by facilitating access to university education. The students and professionals can learn the program through a "student kit" which includes a tablet computer, an internet connection and a subscription to the digital library Cyberlibris. The program is supported by the Embassy of France in Haiti and by the AUF. THESS is a platform that integrates multiple services: online education, university governance, educational management, collaborative tools (forum, chat). It is open to all members of the universities of the Conference of Rectors and Presidents of Universities of Haiti (CORPUHA).
The Montfort Institute, a school for sensory disabled children was founded in April 1957 by the Congregation of the Daughters of Wisdom. When the main building of the institution was destroyed by the 2010 earthquake, the deaf and mute children were shifted to under makeshift tarps and tents. World Vision, a non-governmental international organization, with Korean funding of over US$ 1 million, founded a new 24 classroom building. World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities. The organization works worldwide, so that the challenging children can reach their full potential. The school now provides sustainable educational opportunities for 350 deaf and mute students. World Vision also extends financial assistance to four other rehabilitation centers for children with disabilities in Haiti. In Croix-des bouquets, the motto of Korean-funded World Vision School is, like every other child, children with special needs should also have access to improved quality holistic education. The aim of their Rehabilitating Schools and Facilities for Students with Disabilities project is supporting education for life for all Haitian children. Since 1978, World Vision, the non-government organization, after establishing its office in Haiti, has supported long-term development programs focused on child well-being and community development. The organization has also provided relief supplies and assisted with recovery from major natural disasters including 2010 earthquake.
Joseph Raoul Cédras is a former military officer, and was de facto ruler of Haiti (September 30, 1991 - October 10, 1994). Cédras was a Lieutenant General in the Forces Armées d'Haïti (the Haitian army) and was responsible for the 1991 Haitian coup d'état which ousted President Jean-Bertrand Aristide on 30 September 1991. He was educated in the United States and was a member of the US-trained Leopard Corps and received training from the Spanish military. This former Haitian military strongman resigned in September 1994 at the request of the U.S and in exchange of a million dollar-plus "golden parachute" offer to resign and go into exile, including the rental of three of his houses at $5,000 a month. As part of a deal to avoid arrest, he left for Panama and allowed the return of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide whom he ousted by a coup in September 1991. The Panamanian government provided Cedras and his family with security only during their first two weeks in the country, as a courtesy.
Out of a crowded group of candidates for the Florida Senate District 38, Daphne Campbell wan the Democratic primary. She was competing against: Don Festge, Kevin Burns, Anis Blemur, Jason Pizzo and Michael Góngora. The seat was left vacated by Senator Margolis when she announced she was retiring after insulting some other candidates in a forum back in June, 2016. She will face former Democratic State Representative Phillip Brutus, who is running this time as independent. Brutus obviously did not want to take part of the crowded group during the primary election.
Regardless on how it turns out, after the November election in the United states, we will have a Haitian-American as a Senator in Florida. He or she will be representing District 38.
In 1758, Jean-Jacques Dessalines was born in Central West Africa. He was enslaved in the French colony of Saint-Domingue (Haiti). His biography is a mix of legend and history. However, most historians believe that he was born in Saint-Domingue as Jean-Jacques Duclos, the name of his father was adopted it from his owner. Dessalines started his career as a field hand, rose up to the role of foreman. When he was around age 30, he was sold to a free black man named Dessalines and his surname was changed again. Dessalines served as an officer in the French army when the colony was trying to resist the Spanish and British invaders. In 1791, he joined the slave revolution that broke out in the colony and met the rising military commander Toussaint Bréda (later known as Toussaint L'Ouverture). Gradually, in the decade that followed, Dessalines established himself as a lieutenant of the black leader Toussaint L'Ouverture, who became the governor-general of Saint-Domingue with French support as a reward for his loyalty to France.
