Big Ben

...Big Ben Big Ben is the nickname for the great bell of the clock at the north end of the Palace of Westminster in London, and often extended to refer to the clock and the clock tower, officially named the Elizabeth Tower, as well. Elizabeth Tower holds the largest four-faced chiming clock in the world and is the third-tallest free-standing clock tower. The bell, first named 'Great Edward' and later known as 'Great Tom', struck on the hour. The tower was completed in 1858 and has become one of the most prominent symbols of both London and England. The Clock Dials The ornate decoration on the Elizabeth Tower's upper floors owes much to Augustus Welby Pugin's influence on the main architect, Sir Charles Barry. The two architects collaborated successfully on the Palace of Westminster's neo-Gothic style which is displayed to great effect on the clock dials. The hour figure of four o'clock is shown by the Roman numeral IV, rather than IIII, as is more commonly used on clock dials. Under each clock dial there is a Latin inscription carved in stone: "Domine Salvam fac Reginam nostrum Victoriam primam" which means "O Lord, save our Queen Victoria the First." Significant of the Great Bell The clock has become a symbol of the United Kingdom and London, particularly in the visual media. When a television or film-maker wishes to indicate a generic location in Britain, a popular way to do so is to show an image of the tower.

My Travel Experience

...have a better chance at winning, or so they believed they would. Each section of the park had almost the same games, and I would try to play those same games in each section to see if I could test my luck. I have been to many amusement parks, but none of them compare to Cedar Point in my opinion. Another amusement park I have been to is Kings Island which is also in Ohio. They are owned by the same company but they are very different. Kings Island has slightly better food then Cedar Point does to me. They have this blue ice cream that is very delicious. The rides are all kind of the same. Kings Island has a roller coaster called the Son of the Beast which is the tallest wooden coaster. It is better than any of Cedar Point’s wooden coasters. Cedar Point has a new ride called the Gatekeeper which is the longest winged coaster in the world. My first trip to cedar point became an adventure of a lifetime. The highlights of my trip were when I rode my first rollercoaster and when I tasted my first elephant ear. The excitement of the Iron Dragon and the sweet, sugary taste of the fried dough made the trip worthwhile. The positives of my trip were the food and the winning prizes from playing the games. The negatives were the expensive prices of the food and not winning some of the games because they were difficult. Although I have been to other amusement parks within Ohio and Michigan, this one was the best trip because it was one of the bigger parks I have been to. The......

Gke1 Task 1

...they faced extreme prejudice and poverty, for the next 50 years, 4 million Irish left the country and headed mostly for North America.(Smith, 2011). It is estimated in the 1840’s the Irish compromised almost half of all immigrants in the U.S. (Library of Congress n.d.) Their mark on the cities they settled in were indelible and since they were willing to take jobs most Americans were unwilling to take, they were instrumental in the building of the transcontinental railroad and other vital American infrastructural projects. Task 1-B: The most significant physical geographical factor that contributed to the development of the Ancient South American society of the Incas was the Andes Mountains. The Andes are the longest mountain range and one of the highest with its tallest peak, Mount Aconcagua in Argentina, topping out at 22,841 feet (Zimmermann, 2013). The Inca Empire had settlements that ranged from sea level, to its center of government in Cusco at an altitude of 11,200. Despite these difficulties, the Inca people thrived, and managed to create trails, water-ways and agricultural practices that remain in use to this day. Virtually every aspect of life was affected by the Andes Mountain Range. The steep slopes, climate and altitude, forced the development of resilient breeds of crops such as potatoes, quinoa and corn. (Graber, 2011). The mountains were worshipped as gods and stone from the mountains were carved with great precision to create large cites and temples......

The Longest Memory

...Although Whitechapel is depicted as the central character of Fred D’auguir novel, the longest memory, the author uses multiple narrators to confront his main concerns upon American society during the slavery era. D’auguir uses the perspectives of multiple narrators to allow his readers to aknowledge the realities involved with slavery and to have a further understanding of the competency for evil that exists in society. D’Aguair has used Whitechapel and his recollections of the past to encapsulate the brutality and cold-heartedness of slavery. His narrative focuses on the phrase ‘…eyes that see without seeing’ to give the reader a cue of the extent to which society enforces its beliefs within people and its effects. Whitechapels response “eyes that see all, mouth that has said nothing but kept silence” indicates that over his lived long time he has finally realized the truth about his enslavement and the extent to which he has been dehumanized which is emphasised in a disgusted tone …”there is blood on my conscience…I don’t want to see any more” and subsequently “I answer to dog”. Whitechapels impression that “a slave can live a good , long life if he worked hard” in order to reciprocate” fairness and kindness from the master” provides reason that white chapel had been misslead all his life due to false hope from the society that surrounds him as he is not treated in the same way where he witnesses the whipping of his own adopted son chapel. Not only has......

Gke1 Task 1

...PART A The most significant physical geographical factor that contributed to the development of the ancient South American society of the Incas was the Andes Mountains. The Inca Empire had villages and cities throughout the Andes Mountains. Some of these settlements were as low as sea level and their capital, Cusco, was at an altitude of 11,200 feet. The Andes are considered some of the longest and highest mountain ranges. In fact it’s tallest peak, Mount Aconcaqua, in Argentina, tops out at 22,841 feet (Zimmermann, 2013). Despite the fact that people were traversing mountains the people flourished creating trails, aqueducts and agricultural practices that still exist today. Almost every aspect of the Incas life were affected by the Andes. Due to the changes in climate and altitude from one settlement to another, the Incas had to develop resilient breeds of crops including potatoes, quinoa and corn (Graber, 2011). Not only were the mountains home to the Incas believed them to be Gods. They created some of the most indelible cities right into the sides of the mountains in an extremely precise manor that is still studied to this day. For these reasons and many more, the Andes Mountains are certainly one of reasons the ancient people of South America grew as a civilization. PART B The process of diffusion between early human societies can easily be seen through the use and distribution of the potato throughout the globe. The potato was originally cultivated......

Three Mistakes

...with its tag line “the world’s local bank,” or what the cosmetics firm Estée Lauder does with its use of a mix of foreign and local models in settings Chinese can relate to. Those companies convey the message that their brands can be trusted–and also that they can meet the needs of local consumers. Every brand needs to maintain its global brand image and integrity. But it needs to cater to local consumers, too. Overly home-market-centric thinking simply won’t work for businesses whose fastest growth is coming in emerging markets like China, India and Brazil. The third dumb mistake: not making things big. Chinese like things big. They are proud to have the world’s largest airport, the biggest building under one roof, the tallest hotel and even the world’s longest laundry chute (at the Park Hyatt in Shanghai). Chinese tend to equate bigger with better. They don’t feel respected and won’t buy if a brand has a tiny store that doesn’t stock the newest season’s products. They know from the Internet and from traveling abroad what exists in other markets, and they want brands to have as big a presence in China as elsewhere. Take Tiffany . It has failed to get much traction in China because its stores are too small. It has missed out on the jewelry boom. My firm estimates that diamond sales will grow 20% a year over the next three years. Platinum sales rose 80% between 2008 and 2009. This is because Chinese women increasingly demand diamond engagement rings with platinum bands. But......

Denver International Airport

...Denver International Airport Denver International Airport (DEN) is located 23 miles Northeast of downtown Denver Colorado. At 53 square miles it is the largest airport in the United States and the second largest airport in the world after King Fahd International Airport. Denver is also known for having one of the longest runways in the United States at 16,000 feet. DIA was built to replace the old an outdated Stapleton International Airport which was Colorado’s primary airport from 1929 to 1995. In September 1989, under the leadership of Denver Mayor, Federal Aviation officials authorized the outlay of the first $60 million for the construction of DIA. Two years later, Mayor Wellington Webb inherited the multi billion-dollar over budget megaproject, scheduled to open on October 29, 1993. Delays caused by poor planning and repeated design changes pushed the opening day back, first to December 1993, then to March and finally to May 15, 1994. In April 1994, the city invited reporters to observe the first test of the new automated baggage system. Reporters ended up watching clothing articles and personal items scattered all over the floor. The mayor cancelled the planned May 15 opening. The airport collects landing fees, rent and other revenues from the airlines to help offset its operating costs. Denver International Airport is owned and operated by the City and County of Denver, but does not operate using tax dollars. Instead, the airport is an "enterprise fund"......

Longest Running Cartel in South Africa

...Facts: On 13 February 2009, the Commission referred a complaint to the Competition Tribunal of South Africa (Tribunal) for contravention of s 4(1)(b) of the Competition Act. The Commission had initiated an investigation after receiving an application from Rocla for leniency in terms of the Commission’s corporate leniency policy on 7 December 2007 in which Rocla alleged that the above-mentioned firms were members of a cartel. On 18 March 2008, the Commission initiated an investigation and found that the cartel operated from 1973 until 2007 in Gauteng, Kwa-Zulu Natal and in the Western Cape. Shortly after the complaint was filed, 4 of the firms obtained consent orders, D&D and Craig Concrete no longer existed, SPC and Concrite admitted their involvement but disputed the quantum of the penalty imposed and Galio denied involvement. The national cartel commenced in 1973 and was founded by Rocla and grew over the years and regional cartels were also formed. Members met regularly, every second Tuesday of the month after Concrete Manufactures Association meetings. Secret informal meetings were also held at different locations. In allocating contracts, the respondents would identify and compile a list of all available tenders, agree among themselves who would be allocated what work and on prices to be quoted for tenders. These allocations occurred in monthly meetings in which a cartel member known as the ‘banker’ presented a list of all available contracts. The......
