As it was done centuries ago In the remote districts of Roumania methods of living have changed during the passing centuries. This shows a Roumanian peasant woman kneading bread dough in a wooden bowl hewn from a log. In the left background is the ancient stone stove where heated stones will bake it. American Red Cross workers covering every section of the country in their relief work found the crude implements of biblical times still in use

Picturesque bridge dating back to the Romans. Another picturesque aspect of the old Roman bridge, above pictured, shows the pool underneath and the vista of mountains. Although this bridge has gathered centuries and still shows no sign of crumbling it is becoming impractical for twentieth century needs. The Italian army was forced to reconstruct it in order to facilitate automobile traffic for the grade is too sharp. The first motor transportation to cross on this bridge after the Armistice was an American Red Cross camion-truck laden with relief supplies for the destitute and war stricken people of Tirana and Durazzo

A Dalmatian laundry. Washing machines and other modern American time savers have not yet invaded the ancient city of Gollard in Dalmatia, so the women of today bend their backs for long hours while rubbing the linens on the rocks at the river bank to whiten them. For centuries this has been the custom of the country and it may be centuries before these unsuspecting people learn of western inventions. Labor saving devices for the over worked women of various European countries have been introduced by members of the American Red Cross wherever their relief activities have taken them. The American washing machine has perhaps caused more real consternation than almost any other one thing

Albanian farmers learn the American way. With this kind of age old farm equipment still generally in use it is easy to picture the amazement of Albanian farmers when they saw a demonstration of modern American methods. It was arranged for their benefit by the American Red Cross, now carrying on an estensive relief work for the war sufferers of the much fought over Balkan state. Tilling the fields with oxen hitched to a rude, home-made, wooden plow is slow, hot work and discouraging, as well, for the men who have to build up a country that is having its first taste of economic and governmental freedom after centuries of Turkish control and outside interference. It is believed that Albania, although centuries behind the timewill grasp at all the newest and quickest means to restore herself and solidfy her independenice for her people follow agricultural pursuits naturally and the soil is fertile and favorable for almost any kind of crops. There are 40,000 Albanians in the United States who are giving their hearty support to the efforts of their war hammered country

In the Payload Hazardous Servicing Facility (PHSF), Dan Maynard, a Jet Propulsion Laboratory technician, inserts the Digital Video Disk (DVD) into a shallow cavity between two pieces of aluminum that will protect it from micrometeoroid impacts. The package will be mounted to the side of the two-story-tall spacecraft beneath a pallet carrying cameras and other space instruments that will be used to study the Saturnian system. A specially designed, multicolored patch of thermal blanket material will be installed over the disk package. Along with the spacecraft, the disk will reside in Saturn's orbit centuries after the primary mission is completed in July 2008. The Cassini mission is managed for NASA's Office of Space Science, Washington, D.C., by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a division of the California Institute of Technology KSC-97PC1277

ISS01-E-5113 (December 2000) ---  This scene on the remote, rugged Argentine/Chilean border in the far southern Andes Mountains offers numerous, dramatic examples of both erosional processes and features of ice and water.  The sharp, glaciated crest of the Cerro San Lorenzo (center) exceeds 12,000 feet and casts a long shadow southeastward.  Glaciers on its western flank flow into the valley.    Lago Pueyrredon, and the other lakes visible here, have been excavated by geologically "recent" episodes of glacier erosion, when glaciers extended all the way onto the lowland plains (top right).  Since the last melting of the glaciers, scientists estimate about 15,000 years ago, three distinct "fan-deltas" have formed where rivers flow into the lake.  Counterclockwise currents in the lake, driven by strong winds from the west, have generated thin sand spits from each fan-delta.  The largest spit (attached to the largest fan-delta, see right arrow) has isolated an approximately 10-kilometer long segment of the south end of the lake.  This river, which has constructed the large fan, presently discharges turbid water to this isolated basin, giving it a lighter color than the rest of the lake. This Digital Still Camera photo was taken from the International Space Station, in December 2000 (late spring for this part of the world) when most of the previous winter's snow had melted below an altitude of 6,000 feet.  Little evidence of man's presence can be found in this rough, desolate region. Glacial data collected over the past 50 years indicate that small ice bodies are disappearing at accelerated rates. (EOS, vol 81, no. 24, June 13, 2000)  Predictions are that large fluctuations in land ice, with significant implications to society, are possible in the coming decades and centuries due to natural and anthropogenic climate change. Before glacial data can be used to address critical problems pertaining to the world's economic and environmental health, more detailed information about such glaciers is needed.  Images like this from the International Space Station can be added to those taken from satellites (Landsat-7, instruments on the Terra satellite launched in 1999) to build data sets of glaciers in remote areas around the world. iss01e5113

Close up of a lady's grave, one of 50 new Anglo-Saxon graves discovered at Royal Air Force (RAF), Lakenheath, UK. A team of archaeologists from the Suffolk County Council Archaeology Department is excavating the site of the old hospital annex on base. The excavation site forms part of an early Anglo-Saxon cemetery complex first identified in 1956 and continues on from work carried out on different parts of the site. The present excavation has so far revealed graves dating from a period between the late fifth and early seventh centuries, which brings the total of burials found in this area to more than 400

ISS012-E-19051 (4 March 2006) --- Newport, R.I., is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 12 crew member on the International Space Station. Newport is well-known as a summer destination, but winter snow blankets the city in this image. One of the first settlements by Europeans in the Americas, the region was initially settled by colonists seeking religious freedom denied them in Europe, but over time some of them perceived a need to escape the strictures of the dominant Puritan faith. Newport, founded in 1639, became a bastion of the Baptist faith and exemplified one of the basic precepts of the United States Constitution – separation of church and state. Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, Newport consolidated its position as one of the premier ports of the United States. The 19th and early 20th centuries saw a decline in commercial shipping at Newport and its rebirth as a recreational destination. Many of the leading industrialist families of the time, such as the Vanderbilts, built grand summer mansions in Newport that are now open to visitors. The United States Navy has also had a strong presence in the Newport area since 1869, exemplified by the establishment of the Naval War College in 1884 (image top center). The College still serves as an educational institution for naval officers. The gray-brown metropolitan area of Newport is thrown into sharp contrast by the surrounding snow-covered open fields and rural areas to the east and southwest. The Clairborne Pell (also known as Newport) Bridge connects Jamestown, R.I. on Conanicut Island to Newport at image top. The main span of this suspension bridge is 1600 feet (485 meters) long and crosses the East Passage of Narragansett Bay. The Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge (image lower right) supports over 200 bird species, including the largest winter harlequin duck population on the East Coast. iss012e19051
