Traveling just got smarter

Jack Rudy was many things. After serving as an aircraft mechanic in WWII, he spent his working life as an engineer. He read Popular Mechanics and National Geographic cover to cover — a curious type who made his own bullets, and shot them into a dirt wall he constructed in his basement. This distinctive bitters became widely popular in no time. Today Boomsma offers an extensive range of drinks. Many of these are distilled and bottled in house. At the beginning of the Nineteen Seventies Boomsma started to import a selection of quality wines from around the world. Conversely, many litres of the Boomsma range have been distilled for export. The demand in other countries for whisky, vodka and rum has been increasing for years and typical Dutch genever and bitters are becoming more and more popular abroad.

Every cloud… Tell Danes you are visiting Bornholm, and they tend to go misty eyed, as if you have told them you are off to Brigadoon. This island, with its time warp, red-roofed fishing villages and magical beech forests holds a special place in the national collective memory. All will have made the pilgrimage there at least once, usually first as part of a school trip, and then perhaps a second or third time with families.

Before the advent of package holidays and budget airlines, Bornholm, a diamond of gently rolling countryside and broad sandy beaches, was the Danish holiday island. It is still little known to travellers from the UK, but these days Bornholm is reinventing itself somewhat — it has been seeking a younger holiday crowd, as well as the international foodie crowd, and even the political crowd:

Moscow It’s strange that there’s no contemporary crime fiction coming out of Putin’s Russia, but Boris Akunin makes up for that with his intricate, allusive Erast Fandorin books, set at the turn of the last century.

July 21, Koenigsegg Owners Tour The Koenigsegg Owners Tour has been run and done, and what an outstanding success it was! Not even at our factory. It was a sight to behold and the unique nature of the occasion was not lost on anyone, let alone our founder and CEO, Christian von Koenigsegg. And the people just love them. Needless to say, we drew a decent crowd. Kids stared slack-jawed as Koenigsegg after Koenigsegg pulled up to park. Our owner family took some refreshment at Hotel Kramer and many of them joined the crowd to mingle and look over the other Koenigseggs on display.

Our customers were as keen as anyone else to review the fleet. They rarely get to see a Koenigsegg other than their own, let alone so many in one place. Click any of the images to enlarge. You probably noticed a lot of people with cameras in those photos. A lot of our customers are active on social media and a few of the car-spotters have semi-regular contact with them and knew where we were going.

Over all, the crowd was fantastic and it was a joy to watch them get excited over their first Koenigsegg experience.

‘If you move to Sweden, have a clear plan’

Tell me how you ended up in Sweden: Nobody believes me when I tell them, it was because we wanted to leave Malta, where my wife is from, and decided not to go back to Scotland. We were looking for somewhere else with nature which is important to us. How do you feel Sweden compares to Scotland?

History of Scania Ale’s Stones , a stone ship burial monument from c. Map of Denmark in the Middle Ages, Scania was together with the provinces Blekinge and Halland a part of Denmark Front page of the latest and current peace treaty between Denmark and Sweden, Swedish version Scania was first mentioned in written texts in the 9th century. It came under Danish king Harald Bluetooth in the middle of the 10th century. It was, together with Blekinge and Halland , situated on the Scandinavian Peninsula, but forming the eastern part of the kingdom of Denmark.

This geographical position made it the focal point of the frequent Dano-Swedish wars for hundreds of years. First placed under a Governor-General , the province was eventually integrated into the kingdom of Sweden. The last Danish attempt to regain its lost provinces failed after the Battle of Helsingborg In the province was subdivided in two counties and administered in the same way as the rest of Sweden. Scania has since that year been fully integrated in the Swedish nation.

In the following summer, July , the last peace treaty between Sweden and Denmark was signed. When Sweden joined the European Union two years later, the concept ” Regions of Europe ” came in focus and a more regionalist-friendly approach was adopted in national politics. These three train types shares fare zones and any tickets are valid on any train of these three operators within Scania.

Sweden is an incredible country often missed by those who only venture about Southern, Central or Eastern Europe. It has a spectacular landscape, amazing cities, and an educated population, most of whom speak English. Furthermore, its history and culture are much older than ours in North America. Up north the land is covered with dense green forests. In between lies a pastoral countryside filled with ancient Viking burial grounds and fantastic biking and hiking paths.

Embedded with ten centuries of history and culture, it stands on 14 islands where the lake meets the sea. The Swedish Royal Capital is also widely known for its remarkable modernity, progressiveness and trend sensitivity. It encompasses everything from lifestyle to fashion, design, food and drink and usage of new technology.

Issues of Xenophobia and Racism 11 November by Hitchcoc — See all my reviews For being so insightful and dogged, Kurt Wallander really does some stupid and impractical things in his work. He fails to call in backup until he has been assaulted or discovered. He stares at suspects until they recognize him as a threat. He allows his emotions to get the better of him.

One atmospheric excursion was to a quiet town on the Normandy coast.

Datazione radiometrica

Il decadimento radioattivo[ modifica modifica wikitesto ] Esempio di un decadimento radioattivo , dal Piombo Pb al Piombo Pb. Alcuni nuclidi sono instabili: Molte sostanze radioattive decadono da un isotopo fino ad un isotopo stabile figlio attraverso una serie di passaggi conosciuta come catena di decadimento. Gli isotopi utili per la datazione radiometrica sono quelli con vita media da poche migliaia di anni fino a miliardi di anni. Precondizioni[ modifica modifica wikitesto ] Spettrometro di massa utilizzato nella datazione radiometrica.

Quando un materiale incorpora sia i nuclidi genitori sia i figli nel momento della sua formazione, bisogna assumere che l’iniziale rapporto tra una sostanza radioattiva e suoi prodotti di decadimento sia conosciuto.

Monday 21 July Jonathan Gibbs tracks down 80 of the best sleuths to escape with this summer Greenland The murder takes place in Copenhagen, but it is to the unforgiving Greenland coast that Smilla Jaspersen follows the trail. Peter Hoeg’s book, with its slow pacing and heightened atmospherics, was surely the one that whetted the international appetite for Scandinavian crime. His Inspector Erlendur novels have the bleak setting, social realism and gentle pacing we associate with Scandinavian noir.

Read ‘Tainted Blood’ Vintage 3. It’s an inspired location, with its bleak landscape and close-knit community for detective Jimmy Perez to unpick.

Faceless Killers

Sweden remains a quite sparsely populated country with a good deal of open space. This is excellently exploited in this three-part series set in the province of Skane in the southwest of Sweden. Some of the cinematography is Bergmanesque, capturing the bleak beauty of the region. Each program begins with the musical theme “Nostalgia”, sung with affecting sadness by Emily Barker of the group Red Clay Halo from Australia. As a provincial detective with personal issues, Branagh captures the Scandinavian melancholy like a junior Max von Sydow–lengthy silences, expressions full of pain suffusing his baby face.

How important is light to your photography?

Filed under Pagadian City The Philippines, being a country archipelago of islands and seas, have naturally wonderful beaches, some of which are famous the world over. Beaches like Puerto Galera, Boracay, and the various beaches in Cebu rake in tourists from around the world all year round because of their pristine and cool blue waters and fine, white-sand shores. However, if one will just look around more, they will find that there are other less-known but equally beautiful beach spots in other parts of the Philippines.

In Pagadian, in particular, there are beaches and islands that will make one believe that there is such a thing as a secluded paradise on Earth. A nice place to start would be the Dao-Dao Islands some seven to ten minutes away from the seaport, when riding a motorboat. It is a rather big island, with an area size of about 1. The coral reefs are artificially made, but the whole place is very much ideal for swimming, fishing, and boating.

During low tides, a smaller, more undeveloped island appears and like the rest, is also suitable for fishing and swimming.
