Business M-28 is a 4.8-mile (7.7 km) state trunkline highway in the U.S. state of Michigan serving as a business route for U.S. Highway 41 and M-28. It runs through the downtown districts of the historic iron-mining communities Ishpeming and Negaunee. The trunkline was originally a section of these roads until a northerly bypass was built in 1937. M-35 also ran through downtown Negaunee along a section of the highway until the 1960s. A rerouting in 1999 moved the trunkline designation along Lakeshore Drive in Ishpeming, and a streetscape project rebuilt the road in Negaunee in 2005. In Negaunee, the highway passes Jackson Park, where iron ore was first discovered in what became the Marquette Iron Range. The nearby Jackson Mine was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971. Between 1850 and 1900, half the nation's supply of iron ore came from this region. (Full article...) Part of the M-28 series, one of Wikipedia's featured topics. July 24: Pioneer Day in Utah (1847) Forty titles were produced for the Sega 32X, an add-on for the Sega Genesis video game console. Codenamed "Project Mars", the 32X was designed to expand the power of the Genesis and serve as a holdover until the release of the Sega Saturn. Independent of the Genesis, the 32X used its own ROM cartridges and had its own library of games. The product was originally conceived as an entirely new console by Sega of Japan and positioned as an inexpensive alternative for gamers into the 32-bit era, but at the suggestion of Sega of America research and development head Joe Miller, the console was converted into an add-on to the existing Genesis and made more powerful, with two 32-bit central processing unit chips and a 3D graphics processor. Among the titles for the 32X were ports of arcade games Space Harrier and Star Wars Arcade, a sidescroller with a hummingbird as a main character in Kolibri, a 32X-exclusive game in the Sonic the Hedgehog series in Knuckles' Chaotix, and a version of Doom that was noted for its movement and game length issues when compared to other versions of the game.

It tells of a love affair between the Princess of France and the Prince of England, who elope but are separated after a buzzard steals one of the princess's rings; after more than a year of separation, with the prince having gone mad and living as a wild man, they are reunited. This fragment of a linen tapestry, which depicts the prince as a wild man and the princess on her palfrey, is held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
