The Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, Inc. is an organization based in Beacon, New York that seeks to protect the Hudson River and surrounding wetlands and waterways through advocacy and public education. Founded by folk singer Pete Seeger with his wife Toshi Seeger in 1966, the organization is known for its sailing vessel, the sloop Clearwater, and for its annual music and environmental festival, the Great Hudson River Revival.
In 1969, the Clearwater made her maiden voyage down the Atlantic Coast from the Harvey Gamage Shipyard in Maine to the South Street Seaport in New York City. Folk musician Tom Winslow wrote a folk music song, "Hey Looka Yonder (It's the Clearwater)", in which the lyrics specifically mention the fundraising efforts for the sloop, and how "black and white" people got together for this program.
Clearwater was a provincial electoral district in Northern Alberta from 1913 to 1926.
The district was controversial because it had only 74 enumerated people when it was created under the 1913 redistribution. It was the smallest district in terms of population in Alberta history. After Joseph State died in 1924, the United Farmers government was facing a possible by-election in the district. The government decided to redistribute the riding and drop the seat from the Assembly. The riding was divided up between Pembina, Lac Ste. Anne and Peace River.
In law, a settlement is a resolution between disputing parties about a legal case, reached either before or after court action begins. The term "settlement" also has other meanings in the context of law. Structured settlements provide for a periodic payment.
A settlement, as well as dealing with the dispute between the parties is a contract between those parties, and is one possible (and common) result when parties sue (or contemplate so doing) each other in civilproceedings. The plaintiff(s) and defendant(s) identified in the lawsuit can end the dispute between themselves without a trial.
The contract is based upon the bargain that a party forgoes its ability to sue (if it has not sued already), or to continue with the claim (if the plaintiff has sued), in return for the certainty written into the settlement. The courts will enforce the settlement: if it is breached, the party in default could be sued for breach of that contract. In some jurisdictions, the party in default could also face the original action being restored.
The territory of Croatia is divided by the Croatian Bureau of Statistics into small settlements, in Croatiannaselje (singular; pl. naselja). They indicate existing or former human settlement. Individual settlements are by and large referred to as selo (village), and are not necessarily incorporated places. Rather, the administrative units are cities (Croatian:grad, gradovi) and municipalities (Croatian:općina, općine), which are composed of one or more naselje. As of 2008, there are 6,749 naselja in Croatia.
The Constitution of Croatia allows a naselje or a part thereof to form some form of local government. This form of local government is typically used to subdivide the city settlements; a city usually includes an eponymous large settlement which in turn consists of several units named gradska četvrt ("city district") and/or mjesni odbor ("local committee").
