The Antarctic Treaty was signed by Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Chile, France, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, and the United States, because of their interests in Antarctica at the time, to establish Antarctica as a scientific preserve and to ban any military activity on the continent.

Name Meaning

Chinese: from the vocative prefix 阿 or 亞, used before Chinese personal names (mainly monosyllabic personal names) and kinship terms, particularly in central and southern China.

History: Among early Chinese immigrants in the US, Chinese names prefixed by Ah were widely recorded in the US federal censuses. Ah appears to have been adopted as a new surname by some of the descendants of those early Chinese immigrants.
