Moses Cleaveland. Cleveland is the second-largest city in Ohio and the seat of Cuyahoga County. It is located in the northeast part of the state on Lake Erie. In the colonial era, the Cleveland area was known as the Connecticut Western Reserve, part of a land grant made to Connecticut by King Charles II in 1662. The city was founded in 1796 by Gen. Moses Cleaveland, who was the head surveyor of the Connecticut Land Company. This company had bought 3 million acres in what is now northern Ohio. A permanent settlement was founded in 1799, named after the general, and the spelling was shortened to Cleveland. The city was incorporated in 1836. Cleveland's industrial growth was stimulated by the opening of the Ohio and Erie canals in 1832 and, later, by the advent of the Civil War, with the increasing demand for machinery, railroad equipment, ships, and other items. Today, the port of Cleveland is the largest overseas general cargo port on Lake Erie. Greater Cleveland has long been famous as a durable goods manufacturing area. Following the national trend, however, Cleveland has been shifting to a more services-based economy. Greater Cleveland is a world corporate center for leading national and multinational companies in industries ranging from transportation, insurance, retailing, and utilities, to commercial banking and finance. The city's cultural attractions include the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Cleveland Orchestra, one of the country's most highly acclaimed symphony orchestras. Jacobs Field, a major league ballpark, and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame also draw thousands of visitors to the city. City Council President Frank Jackson defeated incumbent Jane Campbell in the November 2005 mayoral election. He was re-elected in 2009.

Armstrong was the first man to walk on the Moon. ************************************************************************************DAILY EXTRA************************************************ 1985...........................Treasure hunters found the Spanish galleon Nuestra Senora de Atocha, which sank off the coast of Key West, Fla., in 1622 during a hurricane. The ship contained over $400 million in coins and silver ingots. Key West, city (1990 pop. 24,832), seat of Monroe co., S Fla., on an island at the southwestern extremity of the Florida Keys inc. 1828. About 150 mi (240 km) from Miami (but only 90 mi/145 km from Cuba), it is the southernmost city of the continental United States. It is a port of entry and a cruise-ship stop, a popular resort with a tropical climate, a shrimping and fishing center, and an artists' colony. Tropical fruits are harvested, but tourism is central to the economy. Early Spanish sailors called the site Cayo Hueso (Bone Island), because of the human bones they found there. A railroad (completed 1912) linked the Keys with the mainland. It was abandoned after being damaged by a hurricane in 1935 and was replaced by the 123-mi (198-km) Overseas Highway (completed in 1938). After a severe economic decline, the federal government took over (1934) the bankrupt city. Places of interest include a sponge pier, an aquarium, a lighthouse (1846 replacing one built in 1825), Mallory Square (a daily sunset-viewing point), and two Civil War forts. John James Audubon and Winslow Homer painted in Key West, and the city was used as a setting in the works of Ernest Hemingway , who once lived there. His home (built 1851) was made a museum, as was the Little White House, President Harry S. Truman 's personal retreat.

Raised in a middle-class family in New York, Jones’ life has been deeply influenced by religion since his childhood. He demonstrated prodigious skills as a wrestler in his school days and won the state championship at Union-Endicott High School in upstate New York. He was also involved in football as a defensive lineman. Initially, Jones was pursuing a degree in criminal justice but then his MMA career really took off and he dropped out of college to be a professional fighter. He made his professional debut in April 2008 against Brad Bernard, a match he won by a technical knockout. In a career spanning nearly a decade, Jones has won most of his matches and his only defeat came about because of a dubious decision made by the referee. He has won the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship twice only to be stripped of his title both the times. The first time he was stripped because of a hit-and-run case in 2015. He also lost the interim title because of a doping violation. Recently, in 2017, he was stripped after a positive drug test. The investigation is currently ongoing and if Jones is found guilty, he could find himself serving a four-year ban. Jon Jones met Jessie Moses in high school and they began dating soon after. After graduation, Jones left for Iowa Central Community College and Moses attended Broome Community College in New York but the relationship survived the distance. They have three daughters together. Jones and Moses became engaged in 2015. He subsequently announced the news on his Twitter account on April 1, 2015. The family currently resides in Ithaca, New York. Their first child, whom they named Leah, was born in 2008, the same year that Jones made his professional MMA debut. Moses gave birth to Carmen in 2009 and Olivia Haven in 2013. Carmen was named after Jon’s late sister, who passed away due to brain cancer at an early age. On December 1, 2016, in an interview to Joe Rogan, Jones stated that he also has another daughter who is older than Leah. At the start of his career, Jones used to train with Team BombSquad out of Cortland, New York. He then joined the Tristar Gym in Montreal, Canada.
