In about 1879,Elias C. Boudinot began a campaign, perhaps at the behest of one of his clients, the M-K-T Railroad, to open the land "unoccupied by any Indian" to settlement by non-Indians. He pointed out in a letter published in 1879 that four of the Five Civilized Tribes, unlike the Cherokee, had… extinguished their complete title to the lands ceded following the Civil War and received full payment. Also, that, "Whatever may have been the desire or intention of the United States Government in 1866 to locate Indians and negroes upon these lands, it is certain that no such desire or intention exists in 1879. The Negro since that date, has become a citizen of the United States, and Congress has recently enacted laws which practically forbid the removal of any more Indians into the Territory." He put forth the view that area was now Public Land and suggested the names Unassigned Lands and Oklahoma for the district. After that...the railroads which had built across Indian Territory with water stops every 10 miles or so, but no customers along the way, and a group of people, mainly from Kansas, called "Boomers" led by David L. Payne, who made repeated incursions to try to settle the "Unassigned Lands" in central Oklahoma. Indian Territory had been set aside for Native Americans, but, because the Indians for the most part supported the South during the Civil War, some of the lands were taken away and left "Unassigned". The Boomers saw these lands as "The Promised Land" and wanted them opened to white settlement. Lobbying by the railroads and efforts by the Boomers eventually led to an amendment to the Indian Appropriations Act of 1889 to open up the Unassigned Land by land run on April 22, 1889. (MORE)
Massage therapists prefer the term therapist. The term 'masseuse' is an older term that is not generally used anymore. A masseuse is a female that performs massage, but has gone through an apprenticeship. Massage therapists go to a school and take at least 500 hours of education (in most states in t…he US). Also, prices used to vary considerably across the country, but the trend seems to be more of consistency. The average price is around $60/hour. But that price can vary from $30 - $ 90, or higher, depending on where you live and what the massage therapists in your area are charging. (MORE)

Do the Oklahoma City Thunder have the Seattle Supersonics history or are they listed as if they are an expansion team?
They have the stats of the Seattle Sonics for now until Seattle gets a team back then I dont thik they will not sure though Seattle has all the banners and trophys but Thunder have the records and other things. The Thunder should not have any of the Sonics accomplishments because they are no long…er the Sonics. Once the team moved to Oklahoma City they should have started as a brand new team. Therefore the Thunder at this time have 0 championships and no history of great players (Durant, Westbrook etc are current). (MORE)

The team originally was created as a NBA expansion franchise in1967, known formerly as the Seattle SuperSonics. The franchise wasbased in Seattle until 2008. After years of facilities,specifically Key Arena(where the team played), not up to par withNBA standards, Howard Schultz, the owner at the tim…e, sold thefranchise to Oklahoma City billionaire Clay Bennett in 2006. Hesubsequently relocated the franchise to his hometown after consentfrom Commissioner David Stern and the NBA. The relocation of thefranchise is steeped in controversy as the city of Seattle refusedto respond to NBA's demands to help finance a new arena, theunwillingness of the city ultimately lost the faithful fans, whichof whom were not the problem, the franchise. After the teamrelocated to Oklahoma City, they changed their name to the Thunder,as the city of Seattle holds the rights to the SuperSonics name incase it gets either a relocated or expanded franchise.Just likemany current professional sports franchises, the Oklahoma CityThunder didn't originate where they currently reside.. The Oklahoma City Thunder are an American professionalbasketball franchise based in OklahomaCity , Oklahoma .They play inthe NorthwestDivision of the Western Conference in the National BasketballAssociation (NBA).  Their home court is at Chesapeake EnergyArena .  TheThunder's NBA DevelopmentLeague affiliate is the Oklahoma City Blue , who are ownedby the Thunder.  TheThunder is the only team in the major professional North American sports leagues basedin the state of Oklahoma. .

In June 2008, a lawsuit brought by the City of Seattle againstBennett due to his attempts to break the final two years of theSonics' lease at KeyArena went to federal court. Nearly a monthlater, the two sides reached an agreement to settle. The termsawarded the city $45 million to get out of the remaining lease atKeyArena, and could provide an additional $30 million payment toSeattle in 2013 if certain conditions are met. The owners agreed toleave the SuperSonics name, logo and colors in Seattle for apossible future NBA franchise; however, the items would remain theproperty of the Oklahoma City team along with other "assets,"including championship banners and trophies.

Tornadoes in Oklahoma are largely the same as tornadoes that form elsewhere. Oklahoma is part of Tornado Alley, a region with an especially favorable setup for tornadoes. The sequence described below typically occurs during the spring. In most cases for Tornado Alley, two or three air masses come… together. The first is a warm, moist air mass form the Gulf of Mexico (maritime tropical). Second is a cool air mass from Canada (continental polar), which pushes into the maritime tropical air mass, forming a cold front. Sometimes a mass of warm, dry air from the Rockies (continental tropical) pushes in to the maritime air mass, forming a dry line. In some cases both a cold front and dry line develop, sometimes intersecting to form a triple point. In any case, these boundaries between air masses induce lift on the maritime tropical air mass, which can trigger the development of thunderstorms. However, a layer of stable a little more than a mile above the ground, called a cap, air initially keeps the storms from developing, allowing instability to build underneath it until storms break through it and develop explosively, growing very powerful. A second, even more important factor is wind shear, which is a change in speed and direction of the wind with increasing altitude. This wind shear has three effects. First, the stronger winds at high altitude enhance the vertical pressure gradient, causing the updraft of a storm to strengthen, which in turn strengthens the storm. Second, it tilts the storm so that the updraft and downdraft separate and do not interfere with each other, allowing the storm to grow stronger still. Finally, the wind shear causes the storm, and most notably the updraft, to start rotating. At this point the thunderstorm is called a supercell and the rotating part of the updraft is called a mesocyclone. The rotation in the mesocyclone is what leads to a tornado. How the mesocyclone produces a tornado is still not fully understood, but the leading theory is this. Rain induces a downdraft at the rear portion of the supercell. If it is not too cold this downdraft will wrap around the mesocyclone and essentially squeeze it. Causing it to tighten and extend toward the ground. Because of the tightening the rotation accelerates into and intense vortex, and a tornado is born. In terms of what they do, many tornadoes in Oklahoma tear across open countryside, causing little or no damage. In some cases farms may be destroyed, or a weak tornado may cause moderate damage to a city or town. Unfortunately, in some cases strong tornadoes hit communities, causing major damage and even destroying whole neighborhoods and claiming lives. (MORE)
