Unpleasant remnants of the strike that briefly interrupted train service in 1913 dragged on into 1914 in what became one of the longest labor actions in Maine history, according to historian Charles A. Scontras. The Bangor newspapers, however, described these events as efforts by “enemies” of the B to harm the company, as if the strike was over..
Assuming that you are not using swears on a frequent basis yourself, a teen who continues to use swear words a lot can signify trouble, especially if they are directed toward you. If your teen is calling you the “b” word, or telling you to “f” off, you may have a more serious problem on your hands. But even here, the issue is not the words themselves.

It is difficult to understand why no one likes us. It is difficult to earn enough to pay the rent. It is difficult to get along with family.

BANGKOK (AP) Hong Kong has been living on borrowed time ever since the British made it a colony nearly 180 years ago, and all the more so after Beijing took control in 1997 and granted it autonomous status.China’s passage of a national security law for the city is the latest sign that the 50 year “one country, two systems” arrangement that allowed Hong Kong to keep its own legal, financial and trade regimes is perishable.China’s communist leaders have been preparing for decades to take full control of the glittering capitalist oasis, while building up their own trade and financial centers to take Hong Kong’s place.For them, national security and patriotism trump the civil liberties that brought millions of Hong Kong residents into the streets last year, hoping to protect their own vision for their future protests that would not be tolerated across the border.In the early 1980s, as China’s own economy began to open up to trade and investment after decades of Cold War isolation and political upheaval, the contrast between the mainland and Hong Kong was evident on crossing the border into the bucolic rice paddies and fish ponds of Shenzhen.Several generations later, Shenzhen is a metropolis of skyscrapers, high tech campuses and huge, modern ports that dwarf Hong Kong’s own, at least in trading volume.Railways, roads, bridges and other infrastructure have transformed the Pearl River Delta region that surrounds it into a whole ecosystem of built up cities that is China’s answer to Silicon Valley and then some. It also is home to increasingly influential tech companies like Huawei Technologies and Tencent.”Hong Kong is a Chinese city,” said Kenneth Courtis, an expert on Asian economies and chairman of Starfort Investment Holdings. Instead of Hong Kong transforming its neighbors in Guangdong province, he said, “it’s more likely that Hong Kong will be more and more absorbed into Guangdong.”The rise of industrial and financial centers like Shenzhen and Shanghai has sidelined Hong Kong in other respects.The national security law endorsed in Beijing followed recent arrests of Hong Kong pro democracy advocates.
