Piteşti (/pi'teʃtʲ/) is the capital city of Argeş County (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arge%C5%9F_County), Romania (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romania) (in the informal region of Wallachia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wallachia)), situated on the Argeş River (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arge%C5%9F_River). Situated on the A1 freeway (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A1_freeway_%28Romania%29) connecting it directly to Bucharest (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bucharest) (the national capital), it is an important commercial and industrial center.
The city lies on the right bank of the Argeş, where the river meets its tributary, Râul Doamnei (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%A2ul_Doamnei), and is an important railway junction, with a classification yard (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classification_yard) in nearby Bălileşti (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=B%C4%83lile%C5%9Fti&action=edit). It is situated 280m above sea level
The earliest traces of human settlements in this area relate to the Paleolithic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paleolithic). Piteşti itself was first mentioned on May 20 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_20), 1386 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1386).
Piteşti was one of the temporary residences of Wallachian Princes (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_rulers_of_Wallachia). Due to its positioning on the junction of major European routes (and its proximity to the Saxon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transylvanian_Saxons) markets in Sibiu (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sibiu), Transylvania (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transylvania)), the city had originally developed as an important commercial center.
In the 1950s (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1950s), the city gained an ill notoriety, when the communist authorities (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communist_Romania) used the local detention facility to subject political detainees to the infamous Reeducation, in which violence between inmates was encouraged to the point of being mandatory (see Piteşti prison (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pite%C5%9Fti_prison)). The purpose of the experiment was to psychologically destroy the capacity for outside attachment and outside loyalty, thus creating the brainwashed (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brainwashing) New Man meant to suit a Leninist (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leninism) society. The experiment was cancelled after five years. Twenty-two inmate/participants were condemned with sixteen being condemned to death for the experiments in a 1953-54 trial. A new trial in 1957 convicted certain members of the prison staff, who received light sentences. They were later pardoned

İzmir, historically Smyrna (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smyrna), is the third most populous city of Turkey (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkey) and the country's largest port after İstanbul (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C4%B0stanbul). It is located in the Gulf of İzmir (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulf_of_%C4%B0zmir), by the Aegean Sea (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aegean_Sea). It is the capital of İzmir (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C4%B0zmir_Province)Province (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Provinces_of_Turkey). The city of İzmir is composed of 9 metropolitan districts (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metropolitan_borough) (Balçova (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bal%C3%A7ova), Bornova (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bornova), Buca (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buca), Çiğli (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%87i%C4%9Fli), Gaziemir (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaziemir), Güzelbahçe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%BCzelbah%C3%A7e), Karşıyaka (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kar%C5%9F%C4%B1yaka), Konak (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Konak_%28District%29%2C_%C4%B0zmir), and Narlıdere (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narl%C4%B1dere)), each with its own distinct features and temperament. The total population as of 2007 is 2,649,582, of which 2,606,294 is urban.[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C4%B0zmir#cite_note-Turkey_pop_2007-0) The total area of the nine districts is 855 km².[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C4%B0zmir#cite_note-Statoids_Turkey_districts-1)
İzmir has almost 3,500 years of urban past, and possibly that much more of advanced human settlement (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colonisation). It is Turkey's first port for exports and its free zone (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_zone), a Turkish (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkey)-U.S. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S.)joint-venture (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joint-venture) established in 1990, is the leader among the twenty in Turkey. Its workforce, and particularly its rising class of young professionals, concentrated either in the city or in its immediate vicinity (such as in Manisa (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manisa)), and under either larger companies or SMEs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Small_and_Medium-sized_Enterprise), affirm their name in an increasingly wider global scale and intensity [3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C4%B0zmir#cite_note-2). İzmir is widely regarded as one of the most liberal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberalism) Turkish cities in terms of values, ideology, lifestyle, dynamism and gender roles. It is a stronghold of the Republican People's Party (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republican_People%27s_Party_%28Turkey%29), although it lost a lot of ground to the ruling AKP party in the 2007 election

Hilton Head Island or Hilton Head is a town (located on an island of the same name) in Beaufort County, South Carolina (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaufort_County%2C_South_Carolina), United States (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States). The island features 12 miles (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mile) (19 km) of beachfront on the Atlantic Ocean (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlantic_Ocean) and is a popular vacation destination. In 2004, an estimated 2.25 million visitors pumped more than $1.5 billion into the local economy.[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hilton_Head_Island,_South_Carolina#_note-0) The year-round population was 33,862 at the 2000 census, although during the peak of summer vacation season the population can swell to 275,000.[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hilton_Head_Island,_South_Carolina#_note-Town_Fiscal_2007) Over the past decade, the island's population growth rate was 32%.[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hilton_Head_Island,_South_Carolina#_note-LCWOW)
Located 20 miles (32 km) north of Savannah, Georgia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Savannah%2C_Georgia), and 95 miles (153 km) south of Charleston, South Carolina (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charleston%2C_South_Carolina), the island was an important base of operations for the Union blockade of the Southern ports during the Civil War (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Civil_War). Once the island fell to Union troops, hundreds of ex-slaves flocked to Hilton Head, which is still home to many 'native islanders', many of whom are descendants of freed slaves known as the Gullah (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gullah) (or Geechee) who have managed to hold onto much of their ethnic and cultural identity. Hilton Head Island is also home to the largest population of Hispanics of any municipality in the state.[3] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hilton_Head_Island,_South_Carolina#_note-LCWOW)
Hilton Head is well known for its "eco-friendly" development, and is famous for its wildlife, temperate climate, and world class golf. It hosts the Verizon Heritage Classic (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verizon_Heritage), which is played on the Harbour Town Golf Links (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harbour_Town_Golf_Links) in Sea Pines Resort
