As the United States press enters the twenty-first century, it faces an uncertain future. John J. “Jack” Kelly, Jr., USAF (ret.), appointed director of the National Weather Service. The Dutch establ ished a trading post on Manhattan Island in 1624, and in 1626 they “bought” Manhattan Island from the natives for a few trinkets.� In 1638, the Dutch seized the Portuguese outpost of El Mina in western Africa.� The Sw edes and Danes even joined the Empire Game briefly, with a short-lived New Sweden in present-day Delaware, established in 1638 but captured by the Dutch in 1654, to be further lost to the English in 1664, when the Dutch lost all of their North American colonies to the English.� The English al so joined the spice trade, and in 1622 an English-Persian expedition seized Ormuz from Portugal, in present day Oman, at the mouth of the Persian Gulf.� Dutch imperial supremacy did not last long.� With the devastating Thirty Years’ War ending in 1648, it did not take England and the Netherlands long to begin a new series of wars; the first began in 1652, and the wars lasted until 1684.� The Dutch prevailed but lost to France on the Continent.� In 1664, the New Amsterdam colony in North America was lost to the English, but it had other gains.� The peak of the Dutch East India Company’s supremacy was around 1669.� The Dutch East India Company was a direct forerunner to modern corporations, was a combination of corporation and state, and owning shares of its stock was a lucrative proposition, for a while.� The French East India Company entered the fray in 1675 with its outpost at Bombay.� During the last half of the 17th century, the Asian trade route was the scene of continual battles between the Portuguese, Dutch, French, and English traders.� Portugal had largely lost out by 1620, and the Dutch by the early 1700s, which left the English and French alone on the field. [94] � The rivals also carved the Caribbean and it periphery into imperial chunks.� By 1770, Spain kept a grip on Cuba, better than half of Espa�ola (today’s Dominican Republic), Puerto Rico, New Granada (today’s Colombia), and Venezuela.� The French took Haiti on Espa�ola and got Guadeloupe and Martinique in the Lesser Antilles, as well as part of the South American mainland in what became French Guiana.� The Dutch got Dutch Guiana and Surinam on the South American mainland, and the islands of Curacao and Saba.� The English got Jamaica, and in the Lesser Antilles they got the Leeward Islands Barbados and Grenada.� The Danes were able to retain part of the Virgin Islands.
