Newport Castle , on the west bank of the River Usk Bronze Age fishermen settled around the fertile estuary of the River Usk and later the Celtic Silures built hillforts overlooking it. In AD 75, on the very edge of their empire, the Roman legions built a Roman fort at Caerleon to defend the river crossing. According to legend, in the late 5th century Saint Woolos church was founded by Saint Gwynllyw , the patron saint of Newport and King of Gwynllwg. The church was certainly in existence by the 9th century and today has become Newport Cathedral , the seat of the Bishop of Monmouth. The Normans arrived from around — to build the first Newport Castle and river crossing downstream from Caerleon and the first Norman Lord of Newport was Robert Fitzhamon. The settlement of ‘Newport’ is first mentioned as novo burgus established by Robert, Earl of Gloucester in The city can sometimes be found labelled as Newport-on-Usk on old maps. The original Newport Castle was a small motte-and-bailey castle in the park opposite Newport Cathedral. It was buried in rubble excavated from the Hillfield railway tunnels that were dug under Stow Hill in the s and no part of it is currently visible.
But when Martin Pistorius turned 12, a debilitating illness began to take over his body. Twelve years passed until Martin started to come back around.

Martin had come down with a rare form of cryptococcal meningitis and tuberculosis of the brain.

Mamucium The Brigantes were the major Celtic tribe in what is now known as Northern England ; they had a stronghold in the locality at a sandstone outcrop on which Manchester Cathedral now stands, opposite the banks of the River Irwell. Following the Roman conquest of Britain in the 1st century, General Agricola ordered the construction of a fort named Mamucium in the year 79 to ensure that Roman interests in Deva Victrix Chester and Eboracum York were protected from the Brigantes.
The Roman habitation of Manchester probably ended around the 3rd century; its civilian settlement appears to have been abandoned by the mid-3rd century, although the fort may have supported a small garrison until the late 3rd or early 4th century. Although not long-lasting, Cromwell granted it the right to elect its own MP. Charles Worsley , who sat for the city for only a year, was later appointed Major General for Lancashire, Cheshire and Staffordshire during the Rule of the Major Generals.
He was a diligent puritan , turning out ale houses and banning the celebration of Christmas; he died in The Bridgewater Canal , Britain’s first wholly artificial waterway, was opened in , bringing coal from mines at Worsley to central Manchester. The canal was extended to the Mersey at Runcorn by

History of Birmingham , Economic history of Birmingham , Science and invention in Birmingham , and Timeline of Birmingham history Pre-history and medieval Birmingham’s early history is that of a remote and marginal area. The main centres of population, power and wealth in the pre-industrial English Midlands lay in the fertile and accessible river valleys of the Trent , the Severn and the Avon.
The area of modern Birmingham lay in between, on the upland Birmingham Plateau and within the densely wooded and sparsely populated Forest of Arden. Instead of the economies of scale of a low-paid, unskilled workforce producing a single bulk commodity such as cotton or wool in large, mechanised units of production, Birmingham’s industrial development was built on the adaptability and creativity of a highly paid workforce with a strong division of labour , practising a broad variety of skilled specialist trades and producing a constantly diversifying range of products, in a highly entrepreneurial economy of small, often self-owned workshops.
Birmingham was the terminus for both of the world’s first two long-distance railway lines: During the Victorian era , the population of Birmingham grew rapidly to well over half a million  and Birmingham became the second largest population centre in England.
Cholera outbreaks in and caused the authorities to address the problems of drainage, sanitation, and water supply. Water was pumped from the River Wharfe, but by it was too heavily polluted to be usable. The Leeds Improvement Act sought to improve the quality of working class housing by restricting the number of homes that could be built in a single terrace. The middle-class flight from the industrial areas led to development beyond the borough at Roundhay and Adel.
From the early s, the Yorkshire House-to-House Electricity Company supplied electricity to Leeds until it was purchased by Leeds Corporation and became a municipal supply. The slums of Quarry Hill were replaced by the innovative Quarry Hill flats, which were demolished in

By the turn of the 21st Century, the West Coast Main Line was in dire need of major overhaul, and new traction. The Inter-City powerhouses such as the Class 86 and Class 87 had done their time, and a brand-new era was due. Some of the work to achieve this would be modernisation of the WCML itself, and to run on it, a fleet of state-of-the-art high-speed trains — and to go all out — Virgin wanted tilting traction. The West Coast Main Line has a history with tilting technology; its many curves slow trains down in order to maintain passenger comfort, and while the track itself cants, or super-elevates, into each curve, there is only a certain degree to which this is a safe practice.
Any further tilting would have to be done by the rolling stock themselves. A gas-turbine experimental unit was developed in the s to prove the theory, and the technology was then tried and tested in the electric prototype in the s. Ultimately, the pressure to push APT into service let flaws seep through while in service, and growing opposition from the press combined with a falling political will saw the project shelved. The traction motor technology was used to develop the Class 91, and the tilting technology sold to Fiat.
Despite the failure of tilting some 20 years prior, it was seen by Virgin Trains as a solution to the slalom-like West Coast Main Line, and so, an order was placed for 53 high-speed electric multiple units. Now refined, the tilting technology of the Pendolinos was to pay dividends; the Virgin Trains fleet, classified as the Class , was designed to be capable of mph, as it was the intention to have the WCML upgraded for such high speeds. Unfortunately, the aspirational upgrade was never fully delivered, and the speed limit only taken up to Still, this was a significant increase in-and-of-itself, and the tilting capabilities of the Class s could take full advantage of key sections, where conventional trains would have to run slower.
When ordered, the 53 Class s were split into 8 and 9-car configurations, however capacity concerns were quickly raised following their introduction into service in , and all units were brought up to 9-cars in
I had been looking for a good event for Muslim singles for a long time, and had gone through some other local DC groups, and even sent out a Facebook invitation and tried to start up my own event. My faith and culture is very important to me and my family, so I am only looking to meet other Muslims to date, which severely narrows down my options. It sort of takes all the fun out of going out the bars, because I know that it is really just a waste of my time and energy.
I have a great career and I am in the process of buying my first home and I just really want to share it with a special lady.

Toponymy[ edit ] Didsbury derives its name from the Anglo-Saxon Dyddi’s burg, probably referring to a man known as Dyddi whose stronghold or township it was  on a low cliff overlooking a place where the River Mersey could be forded. In the 13th century Didsbury was variously referred to as Dydesbyre, Dydesbiri, Didsbury or Dodesbury. It underwent major refurbishment in and again in the 19th century, although most of the stonework visible today dates from the 17th century.

Although I’d never been to one, and didn’t know anyone who actually had, the whole concept sounded so contrived and artificial, it couldn’t possibly result in anything but an awful evening and hopefully a hilarious story. As I walked in and scanned the room, my hopes didn’t exactly soar. Once the event started, the ladies were instructed to have a seat at a table with a number at it, and the gentlemen would rotate every five minutes. As the first gentleman took a seat at my table, the conversation began instantly and I might as well have been casually approached by a guy at a wine bar.
The five-minute intervals came and went, punctuated somewhat awkwardly by the whistle, which was alternately received as a surprise or a relief. While I wasn’t exactly feeling everyone I was talking to, I wasn’t having a bad time. In fact, at moments, it was even fun. Walking home later, I surprisingly felt like the night was a success.
The openly gay bar is a relatively new addition to the social space scene, and it became quite common quite quickly, perhaps, some say, too quickly. Now, most straight folks have little fear of homosexuality, and gay bars become their joint du jour—to the horror of many men and women who wish they still had their sacred space free of bachelorette parties read Drew Droege’s take on this phenomenon.
While we don’t think the battle of the dance floor will be won anytime soon and probably shouldn’t even be fought , gay bars, even in the age of social integration and online communities, remain an integral space for LGBT communities the world over. As with any list, it’s impossible to be definitive.

A bimbo is walking down the street with a pig under her arm. She is often seen as a dumb blonde and bears the brunt of numerous jokes in society as highlighted above. So, is it ok and acceptable to us that women are given this degrading label? A new web game named Miss Bimbo was launched in the UK just a couple of months ago.
I decided to register to get an insight into the game. To achieve this goal the player is provided with a host of beautifying tools, including — plastic surgery, sun beds, beauty parlours, the latest fashions — including sexy lingerie, and diet pills. In the registration confirmation email sent by the website they boast that the game is played mainly by 7 — 17 year olds from all over the world. In the UK alone the game is currently played by over , players, most of whom are girls aged between 9 — 16 years old.
The honest, simple, answer? Once, many years ago when I visited Blackpool Pleasure Beach, I came across a game in the arcade section not a section I visit anymore: The aim of the game was that whenever a monster reared its ugly head, you had to bash it with a hammer. The only way to combat all the monsters is to unplug the game, and just not play. What needs to be looked at is the reason why these issues arise time and time again. What sort of a society is it where these types of problems take root and flourish?
