The town, with a population of around 14, , is thought to have taken its name from the dense hazel woodland and a lake mere that once stood close to the centre of the town. An alternative view is that a Saxon settlement here was named after the tribe occupying it, although again it is likely that the tribe’s name reflected its local geographic origins. Local historians believe that based on Haslemere’s original street layout that it is an example of a ‘planted’ town – literally a settlement ‘planted’ in open countryside to provide market town functionality – and with a characteristic T-shape common in the 12th and 13th centuries. In an annual fair was granted by charter and appears to have flourished until the end of the 16th century when Haslemere was documented as having fallen on hard times. Both the market and fair had been abandoned which would have had a considerable impact on the town as both events generated revenues in the form of market tolls. Elizabeth I granted a new charter in which gave the borough the right to elect two members of Parliament and also provided for the revival of the market and fair. This borough status was withdrawn in the Reform Bill of A map created by one William Morley c , which is displayed in Haslemere Museum, clearly shows the T-shaped layout of the town with Market House at its focus. A map drawn 50 years after that of Morley’s clearly shows the newly established turnpike road linking Haslemere to Godalming and building development in the town suggesting a period of prosperity.

Abstract Chinese food today is the product of thousands of years of development, involving, among other things, borrowing hundreds of crops from western Asia, India, Southeast Asia, and most recently the New World. Even things like Maya cactus fruit have appeared on the Chinese market. But before all this, there was a long period of development, involving the independent invention of agriculture, the domestication of millets and rice, the coming of ancient Near Eastern crops, and the development of an agrarian civilization based on highly innovative Chinese technology. Many important new findings on this early period have appeared recently. I am talking about Chinese food before there was any. That is, I am going to talk about what people ate in the days long before the Qin Dynasty unified and gave its name to the core of what we now know as China. China in that sense began a very long time ago. Over time, it has stayed more or less the same while all around it has gone through dramatic changes. The most dramatic change of all may have been the slow-motion crash of India into Asia.

Man Crush Monday: Niall Horan

Virgo It’s hardly surprising that the pop singer has to pinch himself sometimes. In less than three years he has gone from dreaming about selling-out arenas to doing just that as one fifth of the world’s biggest boy band An accomplished guitar player, Niall has been honing his talent since he was years-old, and in his free time liked to sit and write songs. Niall was 16 when he went along to the auditions for the seventh series on the X Factor in Dublin. The confident teen drew a mixed response from the judges with his rendition of Ne Yo’s So Sick, with Cheryl Cole voting not to send him through. For the bootcamp round, he performed Champagne Supernova by Oasis, but failed to make it through. Now a member of One Direction — Niall had jokingly suggested the boys name themselves Niall and the Potatoes — he was back in the competition, and the group progressed through the show, eventually coming third behind Rebecca Ferguson and winner Matt Cardle.

The Best of Hong Kong

Oct 25, , 8: We were approached by a approx 30 year old scottish lady who said she wanted us to spare a few minutes for a survey. She asked the usual harmless questions: My partner scratched off three matching t-shirt symbols; and I got three matching stars. But to get the “prize” we had to go visit the new “Hong Kong Gold Coast” resort – which they would pay the cab fare for to get there and we could get a free shuttle back when finished. We were also told we would get free drinks and that it wasn’t often someone scratched the “three matching stars”. This is where the scam comes in.

Billboards on Times Square , New York City These sort of multi-sign advertisements are no longer common, though they are not extinct. One example, advertising for the NCAA , depicts a basketball player aiming a shot on one billboard; on the next one, 90 yards 82 meters away, is the basket. Another example is the numerous billboards advertising the roadside attraction South of the Border near Dillon, SC , along I in many states. Many cities have high densities of billboards, especially where there is dense pedestrian traffic— Times Square in New York City is a good example. Because of the lack of space in cities, these billboards are placed on the sides of buildings and sometimes are free-standing billboards hanging above buildings. Billboards on the sides of buildings create different stylistic opportunities, with artwork that incorporates features of the building into the design, such as using windows as eyes, or for gigantic frescoes that adorn the entire building. Visual and environmental concerns[ edit ] Many groups such as Scenic America have complained that billboards on highways cause excessive clearing of trees and intrude on the surrounding landscape, with billboards’ bright colors, lights and large fonts making it difficult to focus on anything else, making them a form of visual pollution. Other groups believe that billboards and advertising contribute negatively to the mental climate of a culture by promoting products as providing feelings of completeness, wellness and popularity to motivate purchase. One focal point for this sentiment would be the magazine AdBusters , which will often showcase politically motivated billboard and other advertising vandalism, called culture jamming.

Guy Pearce

So, ya, a long long time. Nothing bad, but just different. It may be a culture thing or the whole “you always want what you can’t have” thing, but I absolutely love dating an Aussie. I always found the way American guys try to get girls was a bit aggressive. The American boys love to play games with girls, and the whole grinding thing? And the drinking culture? Americans drink to get drunk and go out, Aussies love a beer with almost anything and drink because they mostly enjoy the taste they just get hammered in process of enjoying all this grog! Also, the whole “Live to work – Work to live” mentality is so noticeably different between the two cultures. Anyways, let’s be real, my man does follow the Aussie stereotypes — Blonde hair, surfer, beach bum, makes a mean BBQ, loves a good beer, and rides a kangaroo to work! Only kidding, he doesn’t like beer that much
