en:Tropical Storm Brenda (1960)[edit]

(zh:热带风暴布伦达) (es:Tormenta tropical Brenda (1960))

(Net support = 1; Against = 40%) (Group 2) (No votes from 30 days)

Tropical Storm Brenda was the second named storm of the 1960 Atlantic hurricane season. It developed in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico on July 28, and after moving ashore over the Florida Peninsula, it attained tropical storm status. Brenda accelerated northeast along the U.S. East Coast, ultimately peaking as a moderate storm with winds of 60 mph (97 km/h) before crossing the Mid-Atlantic states and New England; it dissipated on July 31 over southern Canada. The storm inflicted moderate damage in Florida, the worst since Hurricane Easy of 1950, and dropped heavy rainfall as far north as New York City. Total damage is estimated at US$5 million, and only indirect deaths are blamed on the cyclone.

en:Plantations in the American South[edit]

(Net support = 1; Against = 0%) (Group 5) (No votes from 14 days)

Plantations were an important aspect of the history of the American South, particularly the antebellum (pre-American Civil War) era. The mild subtropical climate, plentiful rainfall, and fertile soils of the American South allowed large plantations to flourish, and large numbers of workers, typically slaves, were required for farm operations.

en:Olmec figurine[edit]

(Net support = 1; Against = 0%) (Group 5) (No votes from 3 days)

This article on Olmec figurine describes a number of archetypical figurines produced by the Formative Period inhabitants of Mesoamerica. These figurines bear the hallmarks and motifs of Olmec culture. The figurines are simple in design, often nude or with a minimum of clothing, and made of local terracotta. A unique marker of Olmec culture is the "baby-face" figurine, easily recognized by the chubby body, the baby-like jowly face, downturned mouth, and the puffy slit-like eyes.
