European Capital Of Culture – What’s It All About

The European Capital of Culture changes on an annual basis. Each country in the EU takes its turn having the European Capital of Culture (ECC) within its boundaries.

The nation is fixed on a rotational basis, but there is great competition between the cities and regions of the nominated country for the honor of being nominated as ECC. The decision is made three years ahead, to allow time for preparation.

The reason every city wants to be nominated is because there it will receive millions of euro of national and EU investment. The nominated ECC region will also receive millions of euro from the 500,000 extra visitors during its yearas European Capital of Culture.

Cities are invited to put forward their proposals and reasons why they should be chosen. The national government makes the decision as to which city deserves the title most, though the decision is partly based on which city can benefit most from the financial investment.

In 2005 Cork in Ireland was the European City of Culture. Roads were improved, a sewage system installed and hundreds of thousands of extra visitors flocked to Cork to spend their money. They were treated to musical, theatrical and folk extravaganzas throughout the year.

In 2006 Patras in Greece has been chosen as the European City of Culture. Patras is about 90 miles west of Athens. Flights, car hire and accommodation are readily available, just search online, or ask your travel agent.

In 2007 Sibiu-Hermannstadt in Romania has been chosen for the European Capital of Culture. Hermannstadt is the German name for Sibiu. The city is the largest centre of German culture in Romania. Located in the Transylvanian forests of legend Sibiu is fast becoming the centre of Romanias developing tourism industry.

The European Capital of Culture in 2008 is Liverpool in England. Liverpool is a historic city whose wealth is based on its port. The port of Liverpool still exists, but is less important now. Liverpool is famous as the home of the Beatles, but has some stunning architecture. The Roman Catholic Metropolitan Cathedral is unusual outside, but absolutely mind blowing inside. You will find it half a mile uphill, behind Lime Street Station, the main railway station.

Liverpool has an excellent public transport system and friendly taxi drivers. Liverpudlians are famous for their wit and quick repartee. The airport is small, but the city is easily reached from its rival Manchester airport, too

How To Look Natural Wearing European Hair Wigs

No matter what reason youve decided to wear European hair wigs, its understood that you want them to look as beautiful and natural as possible. European wigs, unlike other mass-produced synthetic wigs, are constructed carefully and intricately, with the most advanced techniques. Thanks to the supreme attention to detail they are already, well on their way to looking like your original hair. But everyones faces and bodies are different, and what looks natural on a wig stand or model, may not look quite as nice on you when you bring it home. If you have recently purchased a human hair wig and want to make it look more like you, here are a few simple tips to make that happen.

1) Take your wig into the salon to get a trim. Sometimes all a human hair wig needs to look its best is a little trim. A hairstylist can trim it up while youre wearing it to ensure that the new cut goes well with your face shape. A new cut for a wig can really go a long way and add a lot of versatility when it comes to styling. If theres a certain kind of style you like, but cant find a wig that mirrors it, you can also buy a longer wig and bring in a photo of the look youd like. The stylist will then try channel that image to your new wig.

2) Invest in some accessories. Accessories like hats, scarves, clips and barrettes are all great ways you can feel more confident your human hair wig looks natural. Youre European hair wigs will feel more and more like the real thing when you utilize some accessories. Changing up your look is not only a great way to look more natural, it is a great way to have fun with your wig and personalize it.

3) Use brushes and combs specifically designed for wigs. Its more common than youd think that someone would try and use a regular brush on their human hair wig. That is extremely detrimental to health and longevity of your wigs style. European hair wigs are weaved intricately and using a non-wire brush can give you a tangled mess. In addition to wire wig brushes and combs, you can invest in a hot comb. These are great for even you want to put a little wave in a straight style or touch up your wigs curls.

4) Wash your wig with specially formulated shampoos and conditioners. European hair wigs require special attention when it comes to washing. You probably wont need to wash it as frequently as you would your regular hair, but no matter how frequently you plan on washing it, you should be using shampoo and conditioner for wigs only. Sometimes, conditioners for wigs often tend to be leave-in conditioners that spray. These are lightweight and can give your human hair wig that extra shine and bounce it needs after a wash. Cream conditioners can sometimes weigh the wig down and give it a greasy look if you use too much, so if you decide to go with the cream, use it sparingly.

The Valley Nefcerka – Hidden Secrets in Central Europe

The focal point of this article is to draw attention to some of the most preserved parts of nature in Europe – the Nefcerka Valley is one of them. A possible devastation around this valley is very harmful for nature. Some people and governments have always had difficulties to respect the fact that living in harmony with nature is the only priority for our future.

Slovakia lies in the center of Central Europe and many tourists, among whom Americans are not any exceptions, find it really attractive. One of the world’s youngest (in the geographical terminology) mountain range called the Tatras or the High Tatras (Vysoke Tatry) lies in the heart of this small country. The arrangement of these mountains is very dense, which means that in the Alps (Austria, Switzerland-), for example, there is a bigger distance between particular peaks. The High Tatras peaks are condensed and thus exceptionally attractive. In these mountains, you can make most of any touristic trips just in one day and you can see all the loveliness of nature hidden within the woods and the rocks.

The history of these mountains started some 500 million years ago and they are part of the Carpathian mountain ranges. Later, after these mountains emerged from the Mesozoic ocean some 80 million years ago, they started to be formed on the surface.

Scientists have proofs that prehistoric people dwelt in the caves of the Belianske Tatry and there are also some sources that say that when the village Novy Smokovec was founded, workers dig out a silver coin with the portrait of Marcus Aurelius.

The Tatras can be divided to the Western Tatras, the High Tatras, and the Belianske Tatras. This mountain range is in the north of Slovakia and Poland owns part of it too. The deceased John Paul II loved these mountains and he often visited them as a priest before he became the Pope. The highest Tatras are the High Tatras, where the Gerlach Peak (2,655 meters above the sea level) is the highest peak in Slovakia. The Belianske Tatras have a lot of caves and it is possible that ancient dwellers lived here, as there are prehistoric proofs found in some caves (an ancient stone axe, for example).

Matej Bel (1684 – 1723), a Slovak Lutheran pastor, one of the greatest scholars of the 18th century (Slovakia was under the rule of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy) wrote a big work entitled Notitia Hungariae novae historico – geografica, which got even beyond the borders of the then Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. The work popularized the geographical splendor of the Tatras, as part of it was also a precious map and a lot of information about the Slovak geography. Thus, some famous European scholars visited the Tatras, probably being also inspired by Jean Jacque Rousseau’s ideas about the benefits if people come back to nature and identify with it. Some of these were Gran Wahlenberg (a Swedish naturalist), Robert Townson, and many others.

The High Tatras had some mining history too. The first mining activities started in the 15th century. Under the government of Matej Korvin (1458 – 1490), mining tunnels were built in the height of about 2000 meters and less around the Krivan Peak. But even in spite of the great enthusiasm, the results were not so good as expected. Some people say that gold can be found in these tunnels even today, but with bears around and going deep into the darkness on one’s knees only is quite dangerous.

The contemporary Tatras

Presently, the High Tatras are under the protection of TANAP, which is the Tatras National Park (established in 1949). The High Tatras have always had a good spa history, as the weather and overall nature with breathtaking vegetation is incredibly healthy for people with breathing diseases.

In 1970, the World Ski Championship took place in the High Tatras and from till then quite a modest and to the world unknown place an attractive tourist place with cableways and good transportation developed all over the region. The Western and Belianske Tatras are exception.

As these are real mountains, the weather can change any time with harsh effects. If you go up into the hills and the sun is shining, always expect that hailstones can fall on your head in a few minutes. Tourists should never forget to put a wind-jacket in their packsacks and good shoes on their feet. Some years ago, a calamity occurred in the High Tatras, as the wind was so strong that it literally cut off many trees from surface. Some wood industry companies want to take these fallen trees out of the woods even from the most protected areas.

The Valley Nefcerka – Why Are You Crying?

As the High Tatras is the national park, some activities are not permitted. Some places, too, are prohibited to see. The Valley Nefcerka is one of them and let me just describe why.

This valley lies above the lower situated and neighboring Koprova dolina (valley); it is under the Krivan Peak; the route to the Valley Nefcerka is not visible. It is the most protected reservation in Slovakia and it has wild nature unique in all Europe. It officially does not have a touristic access. As it has been preserved this way for a quite long time, there may be yet some unknown species of flora and fauna not observable anywhere in the world. The valley starts with woods, then follow dwarf pines, a howling waterfall, the Krivan’s wall on the right hand and the rocks everywhere; then you can see the dark blue mountain lakes with the clearest water in the world. The valley ends with the ridge of the Furkotsky Peaks accessible from a different valley (Furkotska Valley, with mountain lakes carrying the name of the above-mentioned Swedish naturalist – Wahlenberg’s lakes). The Nefcerka Valley has three mountain lakes called Terianske lakes (deep up to 47 meters) and the Nefcersky stream runs out of them. In the Valley Nefcerka, there is the Nefcerka Waterfall high almost as a 30-floor building. The valley’s name is probably derived from the Neftzer family lineage, which took care of the royal property from the year 1695 up to 1762.

On the web of TANAP, the Valey Nefcerka is specifically mentioned as one of the areas that rock climbers are not allowed to enter:

Nefcerka can be seen from the Krivan Peak, which is freely reachable by tourists (some 4 hours from Strbske pleso – a ski center):

From animals living in such hidden places like this nature’s jewel I describe here, we can mention eagle, Eurasian lynx, marmot, but also many others such as viper, chamois, bear, wild cat- Among the ones that is very special is Branchinecta paludosa (a creature from the class of primitive and primarily fresh water crustaceans). This is a water creature that has one special attribute – it does not live anywhere in the world except Greenland, Siberia, Scandinavia- Then we have thousands of miles and we suddenly find it in the High Tatras. This ice relict lives only in two High Tatras lakes and one of them is said to be the higher Furkotske lake (pleso) in the Furkotska Valley – a neighbor of Nefcerka. A source in Wikipedia has a little information too:

Of the flora, we can also mention some interesting plants. One of such species is Erysimum wahlenbergii, which was discovered by the above-mentioned Swedish scholar and which carries his name. This plant grows up to the length of one meter and it has yellow flowers like wild radish. This kind of the plant class has not been found anywhere in the world.

More information about the High Tatras (as well as about the above-mentioned Gran Wahlenberg and Robert Tounson) can be found in the English Wikipedia:

Conclusion

I remember visiting the Valley Nefcerka with my father in 1968. It has been one of the most vivid experiences I have ever had, as the Soviet army entered aggressively our country (Czechoslovakia at that time) exactly on that day in August. As we were coming back, we listened to the radio. Even at that time, no cars were allowed to push their wheels to the Koprova and Ticha Valley. Now too, the access to the Valley Nefcerka is not given to anybody except for special purposes (scientific ones, etc.).

Is the heavy machinery allowed to go just as near as the Valley Nefcerka to cut off and take away the fallen trees only because it yields profit? The noise these machines produce is to the nature’s ears the same what the heavy artillery to human ears. Yet, we have a law that if someone destroys a nest of a protected bird he or she is sentenced to prison. Can the heavy machines come here, scare the animals, or even destroy birds’ nests built in the area of the fallen trees? The Valley Ticha, which is neighboring with Valley Koprova, has its website and you can see pictures of these machines here:

If anybody would like to visit Slovakia, it is a good idea to start with Slovak websites. There is much more than the Valley Nefcerka in the High Tatras. Quite a famous Slovak artist, Julius Koller, installed a UFO Gallery on one of the High Tatras’ mountains. The Ganek Peak is inaccessible to all but expert climbers. The idea with the UFO Gallery and the stars being attached to climbers’ eyes helps to find a new dimension.

There is quite a good website for finding an accommodation within a wide spectrum of hotels and various cheaper places in villages even near or in the High Tatras. If someone would like to visit the Tatras or just Slovakia, this Slovak website would help: . It has a good database of accommodation offers in Slovakia. In Slovak, -accommodation- is -ubytovanie- and it is easy, if you are here, to ask people in an Internet caf about the meaning of various words that you do not understand.

The Valley Nefcerka is the most eye-catching thing I have ever seen. I remember one Frenchman, while visiting the Krivan Peak, as he said on the top of it: -This is the most beautiful scenery I have ever seen in my life-. I agree with him.

Inflation And European Debt Crisis Pushes Gold Mining Stock On The Upswing

With the year bringing havoc to bonds and a bear market in stocks , accompanied by Chaos and trouble in some of the countries in the Middle east region , like Syria & Libya .

All this recent happening and together with investor concern over the European Sovereign-debt crisis and fears of renewed global recession caused gold strong rally this recent months

Another Rush came in from the Chinese and Indian buyers of gold as they are concerned about the prevailing high inflation in their countries and are seeking a safety Haven , and also possibly the Big rise in Wealth in those two countries creates additional demand as owning gold can be seen as a Wealth Of Fortune .

If the above is true , surely it means that gold may be going to extend further its gain this year as long as inflation in China and India still elevate higher even with their Government trying to slow down the inflation crisis

Without forgetting the present Debt crisis in both Europe and Big America , Gold Might possibly still edge up again as recently the worlds largest gold ETF, the SPDR Gold Trust, has reported the net tonnes its holds decline this year, showing that, overall, there isnt much demand-from portfolio managers and retail investors in developed countries.

The fund witness some peak when it climbed as high as 1,309 tonnes on Aug but slipped back to below stock value at 1,232 tonnes just recently but Overall , it has been largely steady in the 1,200 to 1.300-tonne range over the year. This figure reflect there is No evidence of a flight to the safety of gold in either Comex futures either

For now, as long as Chinese and Indian consumers are still caught up with their worry about inflation, and the global economy remains under threat, there are no real reasons to expect gold prices to decline.

India and China are also the key drivers of these two categories , With Indians demand jumping 38 per cent in the second quarter of this year and their demand for bars and bullion has leapt by almost 80 percent which show their Government is try to stock up in such time especially to counter against inflation , and yet they still could not reduce the worsening effect as inflation stood at 9 % until today .

China did manage to bring down their inflation with similar counter measure ,but the worsening threat from Europe and with recession spell being felt in major economy like the United States , there are no real reasons to expect gold prices to decline.

With that being said , somehow the recent price of gold has plummeted promptly from all time high of US $ 1,170 by about US$120 an ounce , the volatile trading is again is spreading claims that gold is in a possible bubble

It is clear that GOLD price increase came from people who are buying gold as either a hedge against inflation or economic calamity , or solely because they treat it as investment after consideration that globally the increase in political uncertainty ,doubtful economic future and financial problems today exceeded that of any other time , as Investment Guru Mr Soros mentioned recently of possible second Depression Era is coming

Gold benefits for this worry .

Even after the downturn in prices for this episode , it is not clear if gold has hit its peak, is gold still being driven by fundamentals or is it a speculators delight? Because of this uncertainty , regulators have acted, as carefully as they can as they did in the former case of the internet crash and housing bubbles.

If you want to leverage and increase your wealth by converting it into gold bullion, you will have to buy Gold mining stocks.

Those who did will have made a lot of money because these stocks appreciated rapidly , to between and five times their purchase price, However, They went up so fast that bullion could not keep pace. I would not suggest buying more highly capitalised blue chip stocks until bullion catches up.

it is a corrections that merely consolidated the upswing that climaxed but as the correction unfolded, the fundamentals for gold stocks continued to improve. This divergence may have set the stage for explosive action soon.

Could it be that the purchasing power of gold reflect a vicious bear market that will embroil all the worlds paper currencies.

Gold always offer a store of value but investors will have a look beyond and buy gold mining stocks that can increase production, make successful explorations, and can turn around setbacks.

The only way you can make good profit from Gold mining stock is to diversify . investing is like planting a garden , there will always be some weeds, while some plants over grow , others may not survive.

The Colonial Styles of North America – Northern European

The Americas have a long and complex history of colonisation by European settlers commonly understood to date back to the adventures of a certain C Columbus but in truth starting with the earliest visits of the Viking sailors in the first millennium AD. Whilst much might not survive of their influence on the land, the styles of the later medieval European settlers are still displayed in the colonial styles of old and modern North American architecture alike. Thanks to the mix of settlers there are a variety of influences to choose from.

French

The legacy of French settlers in North America can still be felt strongly in certain parts of French speaking Canada as well as around the Mississippi and its delta in the USA. Their buildings are typically characterised by being timber framed with large upright log pillars/columns set into the ground, known as porteaux-en-terre, or on platforms, known as porteaux-sur-solle. They are often distinctive in having a large porch along the front extent of the building, under the span of the main roof, with the raised porch and living quarters perching upon raised basements. The porches are also used to connect the building separate rooms with entrances leading through french (floor to ceiling glass panelled) doors. Entrance ways and windows can also feature plantation style shutters, whilst the walls between the timber frames are usually constructed of mixtures of clay, mud, animal hair, stones and latterly brickwork.

This French colonial style has become particularly associated with the American South, the Mississippi delta and the Plantation style due to its aptness for humid, hot and sometimes boggy environments.

Dutch

Migrants from the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, northern Germany and northern France settled extensively along the eastern seaboard of the USA, south of New England, particularly around the town then known as New Amsterdam, now known as New York (following its later purchase by the English). The term Dutch Colonial is commonly used to refer to houses with gambrel roofs – roofs that have a shallow slope towards the top of the roof and a steeper slope on the roofs bottom portion (with an additional flare on some styles) – as well as some revivalist versions of these styles from the twentieth century. In reality however, Dutch settlers imported a mixture of styles and features including the use of brick, chimneys on each end of the roof, sash windows, stable (Dutch) doors and exterior wooden shutters whilst the earliest examples Dutch colonial architecture would have been simple single room houses which could have been developed over time.

German

Rather misleadingly the term German colonial can be applied to the architectural imports of settlers from across northern Europe, from Scandinavia to the Celtic nations of the UK, as well Germany itself. These migrants colonised similar territories as the Dutch settlers from the Low Countries as mentioned above, just slightly to the south and inland, in places like Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. They also imported similar features from their homelands such as the use of exposed brick work and wishbone chimneys. Indeed Dutch Colonial is seen by some as a derivation of Deutsch (German/Germanic) rather than specifically referring to styles from the Netherlands. However, German colonial styles in particular also feature the use of very thick walls, medieval European style half-timbering and stone reinforcement arches over window and door frames, whilst roofs tend to be steep in design rather than the Dutch gambrels.
