Yale Romanization Of Mandarin
The Yale romanization of Mandarin was developed in 1943 by the Yale sinologist George Kennedy to help prepare American soldiers to communicate with their Chinese allies on the battlefield. Rather than try to teach recruits to interpret the standard romanization of the time for Mandarin, the Wade–Giles system, a new system was invented that utilized the decoding skills that recruits would already know from having learned to read English, i.e. it used English spelling conventions to represent Chinese sounds. It avoided the main problems that the Wade–Giles system presented to the uninitiated student or news announcer trying to get somebody's name right in a public forum, because it did not use the spiritus asper (which looks like an apostrophe) to distinguish non-aspirated from aspirated initial sounds, such as jee from chee. In Wade–Giles, the first of those would be written chi and the second would be written ch'i

(IATA). The characters prominently displayed on baggage tags attached at airport check-in desks are an example of a way these codes are used.

A list of airports sorted by IATA code is available. A list of railway station codes, shared in agreements between airlines and rail lines such as Amtrak, SNCF

Major land reclamation projects have been conducted since the mid-19th century.[2]Contents1 Projects 2 Issues 3 Environmental legislation 4 Gallery 5 See also 6 References 7 External linksProjects[edit] One of the earliest and best-known modern projects was the Praya Reclamation Scheme, which added 50 to 60 acres (24 ha) of land in 1890 during the second phase of construction
