Milwaukee pronounced /mɪlˈwɔːkiː/) is the largest city in the U.S. state of Wisconsin, the 26th most populous city in the United States and 39th most populous region in the United States. It is the county seat of Milwaukee County and is located on the southwestern shore of Lake Michigan. Its estimated 2009 population was 605,014.[3] Milwaukee is the main cultural and economic center of the Milwaukee–Racine–Waukesha Metropolitan Area with a population of 1,739,497 as of 2007.[4] Milwaukee is also the regional center of the seven county Greater Milwaukee Area, with an estimated population of 2,014,032 as of 2008.[5]
The first Europeans to pass through the area were French missionaries and fur traders. In 1818, the French-Canadian explorer Solomon Juneau settled in the area, and in 1822 Juneau's town combined with two neighboring towns to incorporate as the City of Milwaukee.[6] Large numbers of German and other immigrants helped increase the city's population during the 1840s and the following decades.
Once known almost exclusively as a brewing and manufacturing powerhouse, Milwaukee has taken steps in recent years to reshape its image. In the past decade, major new additions to the city have included the Milwaukee Riverwalk, the Frontier Airlines Center, Miller Park, an internationally renowned addition to the Milwaukee Art Museum, and Pier Wisconsin, as well as major renovations to the Milwaukee Auditorium. In addition, many new skyscrapers, condos, lofts and apartments have been constructed in neighborhoods on and near the lakefront and riverbanks.

Melbourne prepares for Boxing Day showdown

Australia captain Ricky Ponting says his chances of playing in the fourth Ashes Test against England on Boxing Day in Melbourne are "very high."
Ponting fractured a finger when parrying a catch during Australia's 267-run third Test win at Perth.
But the 36-year-old has taken part in a light fielding session and intends to bat in the nets on Friday.
Wicketkeeper Brad Haddin said: "The signs are all good at this stage. It's very important that he plays."
Haddin underlined the influence Ponting has on the Australia team, adding: "He's our leader, and we get a lot of inspiration from him."

Vaughan rips into Aussie top order

Ponting has an impressive record at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, with a Test average of 62, considerably higher than his overall average of 53.
However, the captain has fared modestly at the MCG against England with 58 runs in three innings.
And, Ponting, who is Australia's highest Test scorer with 12,333 runs, has not enjoyed a good Ashes series with the bat so far, averaging slightly over 16.
He opened up with 10 and 51 not out in the drawn first Test, was out for a second ball duck and nine in the innings defeat in the second Test and scored only 12 and 1 in Perth.
Vice-captain Michael Clarke has also only made one fifty in the series thus far but Haddin said: "Obviously those guys are class players. Their records prove that.

"One thing class players like is playing on the big stage, and it doesn't get any bigger than Boxing Day.
Australia called up uncapped Pakistan-born New South Wales batsman Usman Khawaja, 24, as cover.
The national selection panel chairman Andrew Hilditch explained: "Through an abundance of caution we have named Khawaja on standby.
"Usman richly deserves this opportunity following his excellent form at domestic level last season and continuing on this season."
The left-handed batsman gave the selectors a timely reminder of his ability, crashing nine boundaries and three sixes in a 110-ball innings of 78 not out against Queensland in a Sheffield Shield match on Tuesday.
Khawaja has been the outstanding player in this season's Sheffield Shield, leading the run-scoring charts with 598 at an average of 74.75.

Pakistan-born Khawaja would be the first Muslim to play for Australia
However, the attacking batsman, who moved to Australia as a young boy, said he was not expecting a call-up to play at the MCG.
"The boys had a great win in Perth and I am just happy to be doing the job for NSW," he commented.
"The fact the team is doing well makes me think about [selection] even less because they are never going to change a winning side."
Asked if he would have his phone ready, just in case, he quipped: "No. I will keep my phone handy for mum, to see what she is cooking."
Khawaja played for Australia A against England in their final warm-up match for the Test series in Hobart.
He scored 13 in the first innings and was bowled first ball in the second by Tim Bresnan as England recorded a 10-wicket victory.
Australia levelled the best-of-five match Test series at 1-1 with the victory in Perth last week, although England remain in the box seat, needing only to draw the series to retain the Ashes.
The fourth Test starts at 2330 GMT on Christmas Day with the final match following at Sydney in the first week of the new year.
