Master Plan of San Vicente, Palawan
San Vicente, in the northwestern side of the main island of Palawan, has attracted visitors and investors with its pristine beaches, marine life, rice fields and 82,000 hectares of forests. One of the first projects to be funded by TIEZA is access to the beach approximately every 400 meters, which is the average walking threshold for most Filipinos. They will have a minimum width of three meters to be able to accommodate emergency vehicles. From any point within the TEZ, there will be a community center within 800 meters. It will have public open space and facilities such as toilets, security outpost, clinic, banks, and tourist information center. - Subscribe for more!!

Regenerate Christchurch’s draft plan for a new-look Cathedral Square
Fancy a picnic in Cathedral Square? On a lawn, by a stream, near wetlands with native vegetation and birdlife? Pack the thermos, that could be a future family outing if Regenerate Christchurch gets the green light for its Square revamp. Its draft proposal, released publically today, divides Cathedral Square into three inter-connecting places - Cathedral Gardens, the Library Plaza, and Post Office Place - each with its own unique flavour. There’s a nod to the history of the city’s most identifiable space, with the re-introduction of water. “We’re going to use water as a metaphor and as a narrative that weaves right through the space and round behind the Cathedral and out to the library,” says James Lunday, General Manager of Strategy and Regeneration Planning, and a key architect of the new plan. Lunday, a genial Scotsman who’s been working in Christchurch for 20 years, says many of the ideas put forward were generated by residents via Share an Idea, market research and consultation with an 18-member public focus group. The draft proposal shows a restored Cathedral, but Lunday is keen to stress it’s there “for the purpose of this exercise”. To the south of the Cathedral, bordered by the Millennium Hotel and the future Spark site, there are plans for a large green space - Cathedral Gardens. “There’ll be a lawn here for people to come for picnics, for children to play, the water will be a feature that they can enjoy and that water will have native landscape and wetlands with it,” says Lunday. The current diversion of Colombo Street around the Cathedral will be removed and the street re-aligned to run as it originally did, past the Cathedral itself, with traffic limited to trams and vehicles visiting the area. The new city library, currently under construction, gets its own Plaza, with a focus on attracting young people to the area and could be a “skateboard friendly” zone. With the Cenotaph also in the Plaza, the area will be able to host remembrance services. New buildings encroaching onto the public square are a significant addition. Lunday’s aware they could be a much-debated aspect of the new design. “Building in the square is controversial, I acknowledge that. If we build on public land we control what uses go in it. We’re suggesting that we create buildings here that have the ability to take cultural, arts, academic uses into them and bring activity to the events square during the day and night.” The purpose-built events square would be known as Post Office Place. Lunday says “this is the fiesta square - let’s get a bit of South American and Spanish in us and have fun.” From fun to funding - who would pay for this grand scheme and how much would it cost to deliver? There are no firm answers at this stage. Regenerate Christchurch’s Chief Executive, Ivan Iafeta, says a business case has yet to be developed. “Once we understand what people want to see in the centre of the city, then we’ll develop the business case that identifies the funding that will be required and those potential funding streams.” The public is now being asked to provide feedback to engage.regeneratechristchurch.nz Join James Lunday on a tour of the draft concept with Christchurch Dilemmas. www.chchdilemmas.co.nz

Duomo of Milan, a Magnificent Gothic Cathedral
The Milan Cathedral or Duomo di Milano in Italian, is the cathedral church of Milan, Italy. Dedicated to Saint Mary Nascent, it is the seat of the Archbishop of Milan. The Gothic cathedral took nearly six centuries to complete. It is the fourth largest cathedral in the world and the largest in the Italian state territory. Milan's layout, with streets either radiating from the Duomo or circling it, reveals that the Duomo occupies what was the most central site in Roman Mediolanum, that of the public basilica facing the forum. Saint Ambrose's 'New Basilica' was built on this site at the beginning of the 5th century, with an adjoining basilica added in 836. The old baptistery still can be visited under the Milan Cathedral, it is one of the oldest Christian buildings in Europe. When a fire damaged the cathedral and basilica in 1075, they were later rebuilt as the Duomo. Milan's main cathedral, a massive late Gothic church (started in 1386) in white marble, with hundreds of spires and thousands of statues on its exterior and a famous façade. Don't miss the chance to climb up onto the roof and enjoy the spectacular views of the city between the Gothic spires. The plan consists of a nave with four side-aisles, crossed by a transept and then followed by choir and apse. The height of the nave is about 45 meters, the highest Gothic vaults of a complete church. The roof is open to tourists (for a fee), which allows many a close-up view of some spectacular sculpture that would otherwise be unappreciated. The roof of the cathedral is renowned for the forest of openwork pinnacles and spires, set upon delicate flying buttresses. QUESTIONS? We would like to hear from you!

Shillong has been called as the 'Scotland of the East'. This is because of its aesthetic, graceful and picturesque landscapes. The city is bestowed with some quintessential sightseeing facilities like the Ward Lake or the Botanical Garden. But what holds attention of the tourists are the waterfalls in and around Shillong. Among them the Elephant Falls of Meghalaya holds the prime attention. Here we present to you top 10 places to visit in Shillong. 1) Elephant Falls It is a combination of 3 rivers. One of the British officers named it as Elephant falls after they saw a rock which resembled as an elephant. The falls are surrounded with green vegetation that provides a perfect backdrop. 2) The Don Bosco Museum It is part of DBCIC (Don Bosco Centre for Indigenous Cultures). DBCIC comprises research on cultures, publications, training, animation program and the museum, which is a place of knowledge-sharing on the cultures of the northeast in particular, and of culture in general. 3) Shillong Golf Course It enjoys the rare distinction of being one of the few natural golf courses in Asia. Not only is the Shillong Golf Course scenic and enjoyable, it is also challenging. A group of British civil service officers introduced golf to Shillong in 1898 by constructing a nine-hole course. The present 18-hole course was inaugurated in 1924. 4) Laitlum Canyons One of the least explored place in Shillong. This gorgeous place will provide you a panoramic view of the Rasong village and grassy valleys. This is a must visit destination. 5) Motphran The “Stone of France” which is locally known as "Motphran" was erected in memory of the 26th Khasi Labour Corps who served under the British in France during World War I. It bears the words of the famous Latin poet Horace "Dulce et decorum est pro patria mori" which can be roughly translated as "It is sweet and fitting to die for one's country." 6) David Scott Trail The stretch between Ladmawphlang village to Mawphlang village is roughly 16 kms long and is a picturesque day hike. This was originally the horse-cart road that connected the plains of Slyhet (now in Bangladesh) to Assam. Camps can be set to treat the eyes to the stunning views of lush rugged Umiam valley. 7) Ward's Lake A beautiful manmade lake named after Sir William Ward, the then, Chief Commissioner of Assam. Also known as the Polok Lake, it is an artificial lake with garden and boating facilities. 8) Cathedral Catholic Church In the heart of the city, there stands a beautiful cathedral of Roman Catholics dedicated to Mary Help of Christian. The Cathedral is the principal place of worship of the over 300,000 strong Catholics of the Shillong Archdiocese which covers the Khasi and Jaiñtia Hills of Meghalaya 9) Shillong Peak It offers a panoramic view of the scenic countryside and is the highest point in the state. Obeisance is paid to U Shulong at the sanctum sanctorum at the peak's summit every springtime, by the religious priest of Mylliem State. 10) Lady Hydari Park A popular spot both with locals and tourist, it is located in the heart of the city with an abundance of plants and flowers. The best months to see the flowers in bloom are April and October. The park stretches over a kilometer and has an adjacent mini zoo.

St Mary's Cathedral and St Michael's Church at Hildesheim (UNESCO/NHK)
St Michael's Church was built between 1010 and 1020 on a symmetrical plan with two apses that was characteristic of Ottonian Romanesque art in Old Saxony. Its interior, in particular the wooden ceiling and painted stucco-work, its famous bronze doors and the Bernward bronze column, are -- together with the treasures of St Mary's Cathedral -- of exceptional interest as examples of the Romanesque churches of the Holy Roman Empire.

The Mezquita, Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba
The Mosque-Cathedral of Córdoba, also called the Mezquita and the Great Mosque of Córdoba, is a medieval Islamic mosque that was converted into a Catholic Christian cathedral in the Spanish city of Córdoba, Andalusia. The mosque is regarded as the one of the most accomplished monuments of Moorish architecture. The biggest attraction in Córdoba and a truly must-see building, the Mezquita is a massive former mosque-turned-cathedral famed for its "forest" of columns topped with Islamic-style red and white striped arches among its other many architectural highlights and serves as a reminder of the glory and importance Córdoba held in medieval times. The building is full of history and beauty - you'll want to give yourself at least a couple of hours to do it justice. Built in 786 as a mosque, the structure was expanded several times under Córdoba's Muslim rule while still remaining largely true to the original design. Following the Christian Reconquista of Córdoba in 1236, work immediately went underway to convert the building to a church, and four centuries later a cathedral at the center of the building was constructed, though not without controversy as it significantly altered the space. Today, despite the presence of the cathedral, most of the original mosque structure remains remarkably well-preserved. Approaching the Mezquita, the first thing you will notice is the massive bell tower on the building's north side which looms over the surrounding buildings. Built in the 1600s the tower replaced a minaret previously on the site. Along the outside of the building the wall takes on the appearance of a fortress, with an elaborate set of Moorish-style archway and windows spaced every so often. QUESTIONS?

New plan unveiled for huge central Christchurch regeneration project   1 NEWS NOW   TVNZ
Strolling through luscious gardens, having a glass of wine, heading to a convention or dancing at a concert could soon all take place right in the heart of Christchurch. he joint city council and Crown rebuild authority Regenerate Christchurch released a draft concept on Monday of their vision for Cathedral Square. There's high hopes the designs will get residents excited again about life in the city heart, six years after the earthquakes. The concept, which is open to the public for consultation, focuses on five key moves to bring life back into the central hub of Christchurch, and to stimulate investment and showcase the best of the city. This includes re-shaping the square to create three interconnected areas, including the new library plaza which can host gatherings of up to 5000 people, the Cathedral gardens which will be a green refuge in the city centre and the post office square which will host everything from festivals to exhibitions with a capacity of 10,000 people. The concept will also be able to adapt when a decision is made on the future of the Christchurch Cathedral in October. Regenerate Christchurch CEO Ivan Iafeta says that people identify the cathedral as an important part of Christchurch, and they've reflected that in the draft, allowing the plans to be adaptable. The concept also discusses re-framing the square with structures to stimulate the arts, with the Performing Arts Precinct, Town Hall, the Convention Centre and the new central library all within the focus area. Regenerate Christchurch General Manager of Strategy and Regeneration Planning Jim Lunday says connectivity of the city heart will be improved with the option of public transport brought back in, such as trams, light rail and even aerial gondolas. Meanwhile streets and lanes will be upgraded to link hubs such as Cashel Mall, Victoria Street and High and New Regent Streets.

Salvador Da Bahia, Brazil trip 2016 (HD)
Salvador Da Bahia, Brazil Trip 2016 - Tourism & Vacation in Salvador Da Bahia, Brazil Sponsors (( http://www.gct.com & http://www.oattravel.com )) Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=World1Tube Salvador da Bahia has an energy and unadorned beauty that few cities can match. Once the magnificent capital of Portugal’s great New World colony, Salvador is the country’s Afro-Brazilian jewel. Its brilliantly hued center is a living museum of 17th- and 18th-century architecture and gold-laden churches. More importantly, Salvador is the nexus of an incredible arts movement. Wild festivals happen frequently, with drum corps pounding out powerful rhythms against the backdrop of colonial buildings almost daily. At night, capoeira circles form on plazas and open spaces, while the scent of acarajé (bean and shrimp fritters) and other African delights fills the evening air. Elsewhere in town, a different spirit flows through the crowd as religious followers celebrate and reconnect with African gods at mystical Candomblé ceremonies. In fact, there’s no other place in the world where descendants of African slaves have preserved their heritage as well as in Salvador – from music and religion to food, dance and martial-arts traditions. Aside from the many attractions within Salvador, gorgeous coastline lies right outside the city – a suitable introduction to the tropical splendor of Bahia. Chosen as one of Brazil’s 12 host cities for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Salvador is bracing for a major influx of visitors. Preparations have been slow to start, though. At the time of writing, construction was underway for an overhaul of the old Fonte Nova Stadium and city officials were discussing plans for improving the congested public-transportation system. Salvador is the capital of the state of Bahia, Brazil. With a charming Old Town (a World Heritage Site), a vibrant musical scene and popular Carnival celebrations, it is considered one of the birthplaces of Brazilian culture. Do in Salvador Da Bahia - Brazil =================== You'll find a huge variety of things to do in Salvador. Some of the popular activities include: Day tour of Salvador Salvador Parks Salvador golf courses Salvador music festivals Surf trips A good brazil tour guide in Salvador, known as a guia de Salvador, will be able to show you around lots of the attractions and activities if you want to explore on your own. A good option to get a general idea and find your way around in the city is the "Salvador Bus", an open-top tour bus passing by the main points of interest and offering explanation on the way. See in Salvador Da Bahia - Brazil ================= Architecture -------------------- At the center of the Cidade Alta there are the 2 large squares Praça da Sé and the Terreiro de Jesus which are connected at the corner by the cathedral. The latter is probably the most lively part of town, with food carts and stalls through the day and revelers in the evening hours. The slick, L-shaped Praça da Sé has cool fountains and the fenced-off ruins of the foundations of its namesake church. At the far end of the plaza, the 1874 funicular railway Plano Inclinado Gonçalves used to send 30-passenger cars between Cidade Alta and Cidade Baixa on terrifyingly steep tracks – it's been out of service since 2011, though plans to restore the train are in the works. A colourful intersection of vendors, tourists, capoeiristas and colourful locals, the Terreiro de Jesus is a historic site of religious celebrations, and is ringed by four churches, as well as the XIX century Faculdade de Medicina Building . The plaza feeds into the Cruzeiro de São Francisco , named for the cross in the square’s center. Praça Municipal (City Square), Praça Tomé de Souza. Once the political seat of colonial Brazil, it is now a lively place to people-watch and see panoramic views over the bay. Overlooking the plaza, note the impressive Palácio Rio Branco, reconstructed in 1919; the original 1549 structure housed the offices of Tomé de Souza, Brazil’s first governor general. Largo do Pelourinho — A fairly small triangular plaza, is among the oldest parts of town. You can guess from its name meaning "plaza of the pillory" what went on around there. Mercado Modelo — The city's main market located in the lower town is and a good place for crafts and other souvenirs. In the adjacent square you can often see young men performing capoeira, the famous martial arts dance which originates from the area. Solar do Unhão — The best place in Salvador to watch the sunset. It is an old style house located at the Baía de Todos os Santos. Inside there is a small museum (Museu de Arte Moderna) with local art pieces. Sometimes on Saturday evening there is a jazz concert.

Piazza del Duomo - Milano, Italia
Piazza del Duomo ("Cathedral Square") is the main piazza (city square) of Milan, Italy. It is named after, and dominated by, the Milan Cathedral (the Duomo). The piazza marks the center of the city, both in a geographic sense and because of its importance from an artistic, cultural, and social point of view. Rectangular in shape, with an overall area of 17,000 m2, the piazza includes some of the most important buildings of Milan (and Italy in general), as well some of the most prestigious commercial activities, and it is by far the foremost tourist attraction of the city. While the piazza was originally created in the 14th century and has been gradually developing ever since (along with the Duomo, that took about six centuries to complete), its overall plan, in its current form, is largely due to architect Giuseppe Mengoni, and dates back to the second half of the 19th century. The monumental buildings that mark its sides, with the main exception of the Duomo itself and the Royal Palace, were introduced by Mengoni's design; the most notable of Mengoni's addition to the piazza is the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II arcade.

Cologne Cathedral, a Renowned Monument of Gothic Architecture
Cologne Cathedral is a Roman Catholic church in Cologne, Germany. It is the seat of the Archbishop of Cologne and the administration of the Archdiocese of Cologne. It is a renowned monument of German Catholicism and Gothic architecture and is a World Heritage Site. It is Germany's most visited landmark, attracting an average of 20,000 people a day. Construction of Cologne Cathedral commenced in 1248 and was halted in 1473, leaving it unfinished. Work restarted in the 19th century and was completed, to the original plan, in 1880. It is 144 metres long, 86 m wide and its towers are approximately 157 m tall. The cathedral is the largest Gothic church in Northern Europe and has the second-tallest spires Its two huge spires give it the largest façade of any church in the world. Cologne's medieval builders had planned a grand structure to house the reliquary of the Three Kings and fit its role as a place of worship for the Holy Roman Emperor. Despite having been left incomplete during the medieval period, Cologne Cathedral eventually became unified as "a masterpiece of exceptional intrinsic value" and "a powerful testimony to the strength and persistence of Christian belief in medieval and modern Europe". As a World Heritage Site, and with its convenient position on tourist routes, Cologne Cathedral is a major tourist attraction, the visitors including many who travel there as a Christian pilgrimage. Visitors can climb 509 stone steps of the spiral staircase to a viewing platform about 98 m above the ground. The platform gives a scenic view over the Rhine. Touring the Cathedral is forbidden during Mass. Entry into the cathedral is free but you will be asked for a donation. QUESTIONS? We would like to hear from you!

Central City - 2017 Progress Report
Each day, photographer Doc Ross leaves his Sydenham studio and walks into the city centre. He has his camera with him, just a small one. Doc says he likes to remain invisible to his subjects, the people of Christchurch. “Every day I go for a walk around the city for a couple of hours documenting the changes in the city since the earthquakes. I've been doing that for the last 7 years really.” At last count he’d taken 17,000 images and most of the people he’s photographed would have no idea their picture had been taken. His is a unique perspective. His images capture not just the physical changes to the city environment, but the emotional transition of its people, too. “Initially people looked depressed and dishevelled I guess would be the best way to describe it. Down by the bus exchange, I saw this guy standing there and his head was bowed and his arms were hanging limp to the ground, and even though his posture may have nothing to do with what was going on, to me it exemplified how the city felt.” “I think we cared a whole lot less about how we may have looked but we cared a lot more for people we met on the street.” He says the central city is busier and the mood brighter now, and has noticed how new retail developments have introduced a younger ‘set’ into the centre of town. But the photographer-cum-philosopher isn’t convinced the rebuild has resulted in an emotionally healthy city. “if you don't look you don't see … and I think that probably reflects on governments and the rebuild in general. If you go about your job and don’t really look and just try and make a functioning city that you'll miss the finer points.” Raf Manji believes the city rebuild has “got to a point where it’s starting to drift.” Manji, a Christchurch City Councillor, is standing for Ilam in the upcoming general election but is making the central city rebuild a key campaign issue. “We need a review of the Blueprint and we kind of need to set a course for a new direction for the city that ultimately delivers certainty to the people of Christchurch.” Christchurch Central Labour candidate, Duncan Webb, points to the empty East Frame anchor project, “what we need is a lot more people living right here in the city.” Nicky Wagner, Minister supporting Greater Christchurch Regeneration, admits some of the Anchor Projects have taken longer than expected. “When we look internationally we know that it takes probably 10 years, some people say 25 years, to get a city back to where it was before.” Doc Ross hopes that “whatever they end up doing with it, does it justice.” “If you create the environment for a diversity to exist then you'll have a diverse city if you don't you end up with another Canberra.” Watch the full story on the link above, or at www.chchdilemmas.co.nz

Titanic & Bus Tours of Belfast - A Great Way To See Belfast, Northern Ireland - Belfast Attractions
Other hop-on/hop-off buses do operate in Belfast - but we happened to get this one on the day. Why would you want to do this? Well - its an amazing way to see the city without too much walking (there will still be enough - believe me!). But you can jump off and on at the stops/places you want to see - and drive by others. You get a real feeling for the city and some insight at each stop. Really great value! For tourist or resident! Located in the heart of Belfast, right next to the historic site of the original ship’s construction, Titanic Belfast is the World’s Largest Titanic Visitor Experience. Housed within an iconic six-floor building, this state-of-the-art visitor experience retells the history of the Titanic from its conception in Belfast in the early 1900s through the construction and launch to the famous maiden voyage and subsequent tragic sinking (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WE4wzd4Jflw). Contemporary interactive technology, special effects, and even a thrilling shipyard ride are all employed to immerse visitors in the Titanic experience. The building comprises nine galleries: Boom Town Belfast, The Arrol Gantry & Shipyard Ride, The Launch, The Fit-Out, The Maiden Voyage, The Sinking, The Aftermath, Myths and Legends, and Titanic Beneath. Audio tours are also available in a variety of different languages, including English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Mandarin and Polish to cater to tourists from all over the world. An on-site gift shop also offers visitors a chance to purchase an exclusive range of clothing, gifts and unique memorabilia, alongside a wide range of publications and contemporary products from across Northern Ireland (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tkn54nBH1Fs). Visitors to the city of Belfast can board the Belfast City Sightseeing hop-on/hop-off tour bus in order to reach Titanic Belfast while becoming acquainted with the city on the way! Tourists get to explore the turbulent history of Belfast from an open-top bus provided with commentary on the Titanic City Tours. The route covers a numerous significant architectural sites including the renowned Queen’s University (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q1RfYiBHb0w), the giant H&W cranes, the Titanic birthplace as well as the Cathedral and Arts Quarters (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=teQFlh-ezts). On the 48-hour hop-on/hop-off tour, visitors can also check out Ulster Museum (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQb4Gn3XWcI). The tour also includes the dark Crumlin Road Gaol and informs the guests of the Belfast murals on the arty Falls and Shankill roads (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kX_5KuuSUE). One of the best things about Belfast city is that most of those attractions and touristic places which one could visit are close to one another and there are even those which could be reached within a walking distance, and this will help in making the plan for the day much easier and will give tourists the permission to visit several things without worrying about the distance between them. Another thing about Northern Ireland in general is the fact that there are different small towns and cities which are not far from Belfast and thus could be taken as great options for those who have free days which they want to enjoy spending elsewhere - these examples include Donaghadee (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jfzvHVJT5Uc) and Portaferry (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1Xh6LD0b2Y). For tourists - a little more about the city itself - Belfast is the capital and largest city in Northern Ireland. It represents the center of several Irish industries, including linen, tobacco, rope-making and shipbuilding. In the early 20th century, Harland and Wolff, which built the RMS Titanic, was the world's biggest and most productive shipyard. Belfast played an important role in the Industrial Revolution, and was a global industrial center until the second half of the 20th century. It has sustained a major aerospace and missiles industry since the mid 1930s. Industrialization and the inward migration it brought made Belfast Ireland's biggest at the beginning of the 20th century. Even though the city suffered greatly during the conflict called the Troubles, it has undergone a period of peace and economic and commercial growth. Even if those different touristic attractions which you have placed on your list of things to do in Belfast could be reached through walking, it is sometimes a different experience to take the hop-on/hop-off bus tour in order to experience the city differently - it could be also a savior if the Irish weather is not helping and there is rain. This has been one of our favorite rides and trips around Belfast and we recommend it for locals and tourists so that they get to know more about the city and the locations of its most visited attractions. Some of the best locations around Ireland / Northern Ireland and further afield. A travel blog/vlog of the hidden treasures that are on our doorstep.

We are in Barcelona and this video is going to highlight 25 things to do here. It is kind of hard to believe our time in Barcelona has expired. So final thoughts. Well, it was a really fun city to visit. Great architecture, really nice beaches. It is very lively especially at night. The only downfall is that we were here in the middle of summer so it was super hot and super crowded and sometimes that made it a little bit difficult to enjoy. Especially at midday or in the mid-afternoon. So keep that in mind. Maybe consider visiting in the springtime, fall, winter. Well, so what did you think of the city? It is definitely a fun city. We had a lot of fun going to the beaches. One thing that is really different about this city compared to some other European cities though is that it is really spread out. In order for us to visit all of these different attractions we had to chunk them together into groups to visit them day by day. Overall, it was a decent city. It didn't quite click with me the same way that Madrid did. But that is just personal preference I suppose. And that is a wrap for Barcelona! Our 5 days in the city flew by, and while this guide didn't cover everything, we hope we were able to give you a feel of what this fun seaside city has to offer.

Reconstruction of West Germany, 1970's - Film 14792
Essentially the story of West Germany's post-war reconstruction, with rather cliched American commentary. Somewhat Cold war Pro-Nato and anti-communist ,but not excessively so. Some of the historical maps are innacurate. A man in shirtsleeves, walking along a road which is still being completed, carrying a suitcase. Cars on an autobahn. Credits. Aachen Cathedral. Remains of Charlemagne - The first Reich, Holy Roman Empire. A map of Europe, labelled 800 - 1806! Picture of Bismarck, "architect of second Reich." Bismarck's monument near Cologne. Map of Europe, showing Second Reich, 1871. This map shows countries like Czechoslovakia which did not exist at that date. Date on the map changes to 1918 as the map shows Germany's territorial losses at that date. Next we see a map showing Germany at almost the height of her World War Two conquests , but it is dated 1933. Swastika fills the screen. Flames. German soldiers and civilians with hands up, presumably 1945. Footage of bombed out German city. Map then shows Germany divided, with East Germany and the lost territories marked off, date 1945. A German street in the1970's, filled with cars. Footage from the 1940's, people standing in the snow. Newspaper headlines shown,"Obituary for Germany". More ruined buildings and bridges. Statues in seventeenth century costume. Headline: "Occupy Germany for fifty years" 1940's footage of people cleaning off bricks and pulling possessions along on little handcarts. Men mixing concrete. Men laying bricks. "Rebuilding began on a very small scale". Legs and feet walking through mud. Upper bodies and heads of "Young men fleeing the Russian occupied zone". Barbed wire fence.

Cádiz, a Historical City in Southern Spain
Cádiz is a city and port in southwestern Spain. It is the capital of Cádiz province, one of eight which make up the autonomous community of Andalusia. Cádiz is on a narrow slice of land surrounded by the sea. The older part of Cadiz, within the remnants of the city walls, is commonly referred to as the Old Town. While the Old City's street plan consists of narrow winding alleys connecting large plazas, newer areas of Cadiz typically have wide avenues and more modern buildings. In addition, the city is dotted with numerous parks where exotic plants flourish, including giant trees supposedly brought to Spain by Columbus from the New World. Cádiz is the oldest continuously inhabited city in the Iberian Peninsula and one of the oldest in all southwestern Europe. Traditionally, its founding is dated to 1104 BC. The city was originally founded by the Phoenicians from Tyre, who called it Gadir. Over the years the city changed hands many times. It was inhabited by the Romans, destroyed by the Visigoths, rebuilt by the Byzantines, and occupied by the Moors until they were removed in 1262 AD by the Spanish. Christopher Columbus sailed from Cádiz on his second and fourth voyages, and the city later became the home port of the Spanish treasure fleet. In the 18th century, it became one of Spain's greatest and most cosmopolitan cities and home to trading communities from many countries. Many of today's historic buildings in the Old City date from this era. In recent years, the city has undergone much reconstruction. Many monuments, cathedrals, and landmarks have been cleaned and restored, adding to the charm of this ancient city. QUESTIONS? We would like to hear from you!

Where was Titanic Built? Titanic Quarter Belfast - Harland & Wolff Cranes - Titanic Museum - NI
Check out this video of the famous Titanic Quarter where the RMS Titanic was built by Harland and Wolff. There is the dry dock and the Titanic Museum in this area, plus the iconic yellow cranes of Harland and Wolff. An excellent way to spend a day in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Titanic grabbed the attention of the public back when it sailed into the sea because back then it was the biggest ship to be built in Belfast out there, but the story didn't end at this point, it managed to be on the news for the tragic accident it went through and for the lives that were lost with it. As a remembrance for this ship and for the lives that were lost with it, Belfast now hosts Titanic Quarter that attracts lots of tourists to it and let them get introduced to the place where Titanic was built. There is also the Titanic Museum which is located in the same area and which also tells and shows a lot about this ship (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tkn54nBH1Fs). Titanic Quarter in Belfast is one of the largest urban waterfront regeneration projects that was ever done. This was built in the same place where RMS Titanic was designed and built. In this place, there are historic maritime landmarks, film studios, education facilities, apartments and riverside entertainment district - this is actually one of the most visited places when it comes to Belfast, Northern Ireland. Since this is considered one of Belfast's attractions for hosting the place where the famous RMS Titanic was built, a lot of people come to check what this place has to offer them.

Since Titanic belongs to Belfast in Northern Ireland, we have to mention that Titanic Quarter and even Titanic Museum are not the only places where you will manage to see something related to this ship but there is also the names of those who lost their lives in the ship tragedy which are written in the garden of the City Hall in Belfast (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0tsLMZf2PE). A lot of you know the story behind Titanic and you might even know it all from the movie that was done about it, but there are lots of things which might still be unknown when it comes to the building phase and the process which this ship has gone through to come out for the public - these stories could be all revealed and told after visiting Titanic Museum in Belfast which tends to tell the whole story in a fresh and insightful way. Being in Belfast brings you to different attractions to check that comes in addition to Titanic Quarter, you could take a hop-on hop-off bus tour that will take you through the most important attractions of the city (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXz7_Rt0UaI), visit Belfast Castle (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81TzF27Jxxc), Albert Clock (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ib92aMIoxhk), head to the Giant's Ring (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKFKeMOXWqY), visit the Commercial Court in the Cathedral Quarter which is located in the centre of the city (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HIBfUcGkBaI) or just have a walk around the city in general (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WiUR8SoBens).

Cusco, Cusco Province, Cusco Region, Peru, South America
Cusco, often spelled Cuzco is a city in southeastern Peru, near the Urubamba Valley of the Andes mountain range. It is the capital of the Cusco Region as well as the Cuzco Province. In 2007, the city had a population of 358,935. Located on the eastern end of the Knot of Cuzco, its elevation is around 3,400 m (11,200 ft). Cusco was the site of the historic capital of the Inca Empire and was declared a World Heritage Site in 1983 by UNESCO. It is a major tourist destination and receives almost 2 million visitors a year. It is designated as the Historical Capital of Peru by the Constitution of Peru. Cusco was the capital of the Inca Empire (13th century-1532). Many believe that the city was planned as an effigy in the shape of a puma, a sacred animal. Under the Inca, the city had two sectors: the urin and hanan. Each was further divided to encompass two of the four provinces, Chinchasuyu (NW), Antisuyu (NE), Kuntisuyu (SW) and Qullasuyu (SE). A road led from each of these quarters to the corresponding quarter of the empire. Each local leader was required to build a house in the city and live part of the year in Cusco, but only in the quarter that corresponded to the quarter of the empire in which he had territory. After the rule of Pachacuti, when an Inca died, his title went to one son and his property was given to a corporation controlled by his other relatives (the process was called split inheritance). Each title holder had to build a new house and add new lands to the empire, in order to own the land his family needed to maintain after his death. According to Inca legend, the city was built by Sapa Inca Pachacuti, the man who transformed the Kingdom of Cuzco from a sleepy city-state into the vast empire of Tawantinsuyu. Archaeological evidence, however, points to a slower, more organic growth of the city beginning before Pachacuti. The city was constructed according to a definite plan, and two rivers were channeled around the city. Archaeologists such as Larry Coben have suggested the city plan was replicated at other sites throughout the empire. The city fell to the sphere of Huáscar in the division of the empire after the death of Wayna Qhapaq in 1527. It was captured by the generals of Atahualpa in April 1532 in the Battle of Quipaipan. Nineteen months later, Spanish explorers invaded the city (see battle of Cuzco). It is unknown how Cusco was built, or how its stones were quarried. The first Spaniards arrived in the city on 15 November 1533. Francisco Pizarro officially arrived in Cusco on 23 March 1534, renaming it the "Very noble and great city of Cuzco". The many buildings constructed after the Spanish invasion have a mixture of Spanish influence with Inca indigenous architecture, including the Santa Clara and San Blas neighborhoods. The Spanish destroyed many Inca buildings, temples and palaces. They used the remaining walls as bases for the construction of a new city. The city was retaken from the Spanish during the Siege of Cuzco of 1536 by Manco Inca Yupanqui, a leader of the Sapa Inca. Although the siege lasted ten months, it was ultimately unsuccessful. Manco's forces were able to reclaim the city for only a few days. Throughout the conflict and years of the Spanish colonization of the Americas many of Inca citizens and warriors succumbed to smallpox and died. Cusco stands on layers of cultures, with the Tawantinsuyu (old Inca Empire) built on Killke structures, and the Spanish having replaced indigenous temples with Catholic churches, and palaces with mansions for the invaders. Cusco was the center for the Spanish colonization and spread of Christianity in the Andean world. It became very prosperous thanks to agriculture, cattle raising, and mining, as well as its trade with Spain. The Spanish colonists constructed many churches and convents, as well as a cathedral, university and Archbishopric. Just as the Inca built on top of Killke structures, Spanish buildings were based on the massive stone walls built by the Inca. A major earthquake on 21 May 1950 caused severe localised damage in Cusco. The Dominican Priory and Church of Santo Domingo, which were built on top of the impressive Qurikancha (Temple of the Sun), were among the colonial era buildings affected. The city's Inca architecture, however, withstood the earthquake. Many of the old Inca walls were at first thought to have been lost after the earthquake, but the granite retaining walls of the Qurikancha were exposed, as well as those of other ancient structures throughout the city. Restoration work at the Santo Domingo complex was conducted in such a way as to expose the Inca masonry formerly obscured by the super-structure without compromising the integrity of the colonial heritage. Cusco had also been the center of a major earthquake in 1650, and many of the buildings damaged in 1950 had been impacted by an earthquake only nine years previously.

CIC Start Online Conference 2011 - Heriot Watt University
More information at our Website: www.cicstart.org Flooding resilience: avoidance, resistance and recovery Prof Sue Roaf Prof Sue Roaf of Heriot Watt University takes a visit to Elgin, a former cathedral city in the North of Scotland, to examine the different approaches to flood management. Elgin has suffered a great deal in recent years with repeated flooding, forcing residents out of their homes and damaging local businesses. Other general aspects of flood resilience are also discussed, including the different approaches to planning, the use of SUDS, and the importance of building recovery after a flooding event. In this webcast we interview David Gowans and Peter Haslam of the Moray council's flood alleviation project who explain the engineering approaches of diversion and attenuation. They introduce the concept of flood risk, defining it as a function of probability and impact, and describe the specific measures being taken in Elgin to try and mitigate against future flooding episodes. Mike Donaghy is an environmental consultant who explains how councils such as Aberdeenshire, and also Moray, are now moving towards Natural Flood Management. Natural Flood Management involves working with the natural landscape to turn moorlands and farmlands into more efficient water stores, to reduce local flooding. Gavin George from Floodguards describes products that offer building level flood protection, including a "floodguard" seal systems to stop the flow of waters in through doors, windows and vents of properties -- empowering homeowners to add flood resilience to their own properties. He explains the need for a holistic approach -- taking into consideration the strength of concrete foundations, sealing access points (doors, windows, vents), reverse-flow valves on drainage and the need for neighbours and party walls to be included in an individual assessment. We visit one local businessman who has invested over £200,000 in flood mitigation measures including a peripheral levee and wall, a moveable floodgate, drainage valves and a pumping system -- all in response to his last insurance claim for over £1,000,000. In the most recent flood in his area, his business continued without damage. Climate Change is already causing us to experience more and more extreme weather events, with heavy flooding being one of the most lethal, expensive and frequent. Elgin has suffered from several catastrophic floods in recent years. The financial, and the human cost of flooding are seen here to be very high and a strong message from all sides in the film is that no future developments in the flood plain should be allowed without very good reasons.
